Turns out, the Universe wants to celebrate Earth Day, all week. So, that’s what we’ll be focusing on. (Remember, I don’t question, merely report.) And hey, ecology!
Part of being a responsible tenant here on this planet, is keeping our place healthy and tending to the natural resources. One way to do this is to be a smart consumer, or better yet, barely a consumer at all.
Old into New . . . .
is the best way to accomplish that goal. Don’t buy another what-ever-it-is, consider repairing it or replacing it with a used/refurbished version. Maybe a second-hand or pre-owned selection?
In my case, I’ve been in the sewing room lately. Turning some old clothing into new garments. A skirt became a dress, and two dresses are now new skirts. Tomorrow or the next day I’ll head out to a charity donation shop and pick up some fabric (in the form of linens or CLEARANCE basics) so I can assemble a gift or two.
It’s not difficult to stay attuned to our Mother Earth’s needs, it just takes a tiny extra bit of effort and some knowledgeable attention. Waste and landfill are items we should always consider with every dollar we spend. Is all or part of this recyclable? Can I compost it? Is there another way to get the same without having to create more pollution?
Our biggest lesson, in regards to caring for/taking care of this physical home, is in awareness. Being our best self, and doing it mindfully, will go so very very far, have such a meaningful and far-reaching impact.
Stepping away from the regular rotation around our card altar earlier, I was directed to this draw. It’s a reminder that we CAN make a difference (for our planet as well as ourselves), mostly because we have more strength and influence than we even realize.
“Inner Power ~
‘You are now allowing yourself to experience and express your true strength.
The fairies ask you to affirm:
It is safe for me to be powerful!’
You have within you all of the power of the Universe. No one is more powerful than you are. As a spiritually minded being, it’s impossible for you to misuse or abuse your power.
Your guides will bring you opportunities to use and expand your power in ways that bring great blessings to you and the world.
Heaven and Earth need the lightworkers of this world, including you, to realize and utilize their power. By drawing this card, you are being asked to release any fears you may have about being strong and powerful.
You’re being asked to keep your self-esteem high by honoring yourself, taking excellent care of your physical and emotional self, working on your dreams and aspirations, and spending time in prayer and meditation.
The higher your level of self-esteem, the more comfortable you will be with your power and strength.
It is safe for me to be powerful!
I have all the power of the Universe flowing through me and supporting me.”

Today’s Personal Disclosure:
is to give my own reading report. It was pointed out in yesterday’s comments that I can’t, in all honesty, ask for recommendations without sharing what **I’ve** recently read.
- The Charlie and Reyes series by Darynda Jones
- The Matthew and Diana series by Deborah Harkness
- every single thing that Patricia Briggs has ever published (with the exception of the one that hasn’t come out yet)
- the last four (most recent) by Sophie Kinsella (which I somehow missed)
- and the newest Sarah Addison Allen offering
What I won’t be listing is the (large!) number of shitty books I’ve picked up and put back down again (or immediately returned to my library, whatever). For a variety of reasons, there have been FAR too many lately. Hence, my request to all of you.
