Waking up happy is such a new experience for me, but hey, that’s what happened this morning.  Our message is very positive, and that had much to do with it.  We are encouraged to accept any and all invitations which cross our path right now.

             New and interesting experiences are what’s on the agenda.  We are being reminded that agreeing to this journey also extends to learning.  As much as we can.



             By stepping out into the world (or a limited portion of it, anyway) we are opening up to the challenges and lessons that we set for ourselves in the original blueprints.  Our charts include categories for growth, opportunities for improvement.

             (But they won’t do us much good if we don’t follow through.)

             The simple acknowledgment of us doing what we set out here to do, is, in itself, a valuable healing action.  So, by taking that to the physical, and saying “absolutely, I’d love to go” when we’re asked to attend or accompany, then right there, we’re fulling our destiny.

             Additionally, we’re making the proper decisions for our soul’s growth.  And that’s a big damn deal.

             What’s really fun about this one though, is its validation.  Yesterday wasn’t enough Truth.  Apparently.

higher self messages

“Truth  ~  21  ~  Higher Self

Honesty, Clarity, Discipline, Intellect

Your Higher Self is present, activating your powers of reason and intellect.  It asks you to develop clarity and objectivity when looking at your life, rather than interpreting events through the murky and distorted waters of emotion.

Strive to see the reality of what happened in the past so you can acquire a more accurate understanding of what’s going on.  You may notice things that make you uncomfortable or challenge your ethics.

Ask your Higher Self to give you the courage to stand up for your truth and address difficult situations at their core, rather than distance yourself or pretend you don’t see the real problems because they make you uncomfortable….

Ask yourself what the problem is, not who the problem is.  Only then can you begin to find real solutions with productive outcomes.

Your Higher Self is sharpening your perception and clarifying your view so that you can make important and necessary changes at this time.

Look for the truth behind appearances.”

             This one adds down to the number Three, which is both sturdy and sacred, while at the same time wobbly and earth-strong.  It brings up a lot for me, personally.  But also, it shows us that we truly DO need to say yes.

chicken soup
Start with the basics.

             I can honestly say that we have not made anything resembling chicken soup in over a decade.  I’m not a big soup fan, but one-dish/bowl meals are my favorite.

             Lately we’ve been figuring out parsnips, turnips, and rutabagas.  Because they are not what either of us grew up with.  We are nothing if not open to new eating and cooking ideas.  (Saying yes!)

             (I said “no” to that chicken though.  He ate, I ate around it.  Meat and I are still in negotiations.)

  1. My sister makes a winter root vegetable stew with all root veggies. Rutabagas, turnips, parsnips, carrots, yams, potatoes, onions all go in. There are other things you can add: fennel root, dakon radish, celery root… you can also toss in some kale towards the end. Hearty and tasty. Of course, mine has beef in it. Capella’s offers some fine stew bones from local beef, as does Longs. If you want some really tasty beef stock, get some large beef bones, roast them, then boil them. Lots of good nutrition goes there. Again, all local beef.

  2. Mmmm, soup. I think I’ve made soup like once in the past 10 years. And I used to make it when the kids were little. I’ve been running across recipes lately and here you are talking about soup. And Xenatuba. Here’s my sign? 🙂
