With our whole selves.

             Similar to our recent message about Elation, today’s gift was über heart-warming and uplifting.  The entire feel of it just washed over me and brought a beautiful sense of kindness.

             It also reminded me, just in time for Earth Day, that if we aren’t doing all that we can, we need to change that.  And do more.

             This is what I heard:

with great passion.

             No matter the category, we simply have to put our whole self behind it.  Be it food, fashion, history, or the environment, we can bring about great healing by merely being passionate.

             For me, it’s this site, Tarot, our planet, and Choice.  Also, trees.  I am extremely sensitive and enthusiastic about trees.

             There’s more though, to the groups or causes which excite us.  Generally there are past-life connections.  When we dig deeper, and we focus on one that inflames our heart, we can feel it all the way to our soul.

             All we have to do is aim our lovingkindness at what we feel is important, and we’ve taken the first step.  Every step counts, and as our daily draw reminds us, positive thoughts bring positive results.

“Expecting Miracles  ~

‘Miracles are blossoming in my life.’

Card meaning:

Majestic wonders are unfolding for you, even as you read this.  Watch for them and embrace them.

The more you become aware of the small marvels in your life, the more they will grow in magnitude around you.

The Universe wants you to know:

What is expected tends to be realized.  Expect miracles in your life.  Celebrate and cherish them when they appear, no matter how small they may seem.

Let go of fear and expectations; allow the Creator to solve your challenges in mysterious and wondrous ways.  Don’t limit the ways in which you think miracles can appear in your life.

Know that you can be the miracle in the life of another.

Questions to ask yourself:

How can I be even more open to miracles blossoming in my life?  What are the miracles that are occurring now or are coming in the future?  How am I a miracle for others?

Affirmation:

Miracles are blossoming in my life.”

Today’s Personal Request:

is to ask everyone what they’re currently reading.  I recently finished two really good series, and a few not so great stand-alone books.  I’m in need of recommendations.  Thanks!

  1. I just reread a VIntage Affair (Isabel Wolff), I have Vintage (Susan Gloss) and Me Before You (Jojo Moyes) on my TBR pile, and I recently plowed through a virtual stack of British authors (Gil McNeil & Jill Mansell), and if you’re feeling in the mood for nonfiction, I just read the Call the Midwife trilogy by Jennifer Worth.

    • I tried to read the midwife series, but it got too sad for me, couldn’t finish…..
      Disappointing because I really wanted to know that story!

  2. My latest read (besides a gourmet grilling book) is “The Caphenon” by Fletcher DeLancy. Really a great science-fiction story that arose out of Fletcher’s writing Star Trek: Voyager fan fiction. Deals with strong women, aliens, empaths and some other very cool scenarios. Mrs. Denial was a beta reader for it, and it became a fantastic book.

    I try to bring the passion every day; sometimes it is harder than others.

  3. I’m in the middle of re-reading the Aunt Dimity cozy mystery series by Nancy Atherton. I’m also half-way through reading The Color (Colour) of Magic by the late, and much lamented, Sir Terry Pratchett. I’ve not read the entire list of his works, and so I’m starting from the beginning to read first, or again, what he gave us of his visions and humor.

    • I never read any of his either, although they came highly recommended. The “where do I begin?” question seemed too large for me to overcome, so this is VERY helpful!

  4. I’ve been churning through Betty Neels, a British romance author I discovered a couple of months ago, who wrote from the 70s until her death in 2001. They are definitely of the “cozy” type–no sex, no profanity–but they are perfect comfort reads. She wrote over 150 novels, but none of them are related to each other, so you can read them in any order. “Henrietta’s Own Castle,” which I finished yesterday, is probably the best one I’ve read so far. I think I’ve read six or seven of them now–I can see how they would get pretty repetitive after awhile but so far I’m enjoying them. Aside from comfort reads, though, the best books I’ve read recently have been by Dan Savage. I’ve finished American Savage and The Kid, have The Commitment sitting on my bedside table. Now you have to say what you’ve been reading! You can’t just say you finished two good series and not tell us what they are!! Also, great post today, it’s already stimulating some good thoughts.

    • We’re current on all of Dan Savage’s books, they should be required reading by all humans. VERY good! Can’t sing his praises loud enough.

      You’re right, of course. In tonight’s post, my latest list.

  5. Paladin of Souls by Lois McMaster Bujold – it’s actually second in a series of 3 but it’s the first book of hers that I read and I fell in love and have read everything she’s written. Or Cordelia’s Honor. Other good one to start with.
    Terry Pratchett – I just read through all of the witches books, the first is Equal Rites but I started with Wee Free Men which is YA.
    Ben Aaronovitch Rivers of London series – police procedural, modern day, with magic.

  6. I only started on Pratchett a few years ago and LOVE him. Am making my way through the oeuvre. Not a good idea to start with his first couple books, though–the style is very different and might turn you off. Best to start with a later series, and go back to the first ones if interested. People often recommend the Night Watch series which starts with Guards Guards. My first book was a stand-alone, Monstrous Regiment, which I loved. 😉

    I find I’m hitting a lot of bleh books too–not necessarily bad, just Not For Me. So I’m learning to stop after one or two chapters and just move on. I think I’m just getting older and less patient. lol.
