Was everyone able to sit down for a quick few minutes and practice the suggested meditation in yesterday’s daily draw?  If not, bookmark that page and try to get back to it.  (Sooner, rather than later.)

             It’s directly connected to today’s message, so I recommend carving out a few moments.  (I did mine while plugged in to a Tibetan bowl-ocean waves app on my phone, while the Deputy was trying out a new recipe and listening to baseball games.)

Must Needs

             In this case, self-care rules the day.  As I mentioned, it’s been challenging out.  All over the place folks are struggling right now, the energy levels are extremely intense.

             To counter this (or rather, to work on fully accepting it), we must begin within.  It always starts with ourselves.  That’s the line we must cross before we can go any further.  Our significant first and intentional step.

             And when we grab those few holy moments, those quick sacred minutes, for slowing and quieting the stress, the healing immediately begins.  We have shown our subconscious that we matter.  That we are worth this gift, the gift of time and space.

             If it’s tough, the road rocky and full of obstacles, and we don’t step out of the struggles?  We STILL don’t feel better!  And then, no one else does either.

             We’ve gained nothing by doing nothing.  When, we could gain something (something enormous), by doing this small and selfless thing.

             Standing before our card altar earlier, I was directed to the best helpers we have access to.  Absolutely, we are validated.  Who better to take care of the care-takers?

“Comfort  ~

Archangel Azrael:

‘I am with you in your time of need, helping your heart to heal.’

Additional Message:

‘Even the strongest person experiences upsetting situations, and there’s no shame in taking time to heal your heart.  This is a good time for quiet reflection upon your true feelings.

Write them down in a private journal, and then call upon me to bring comfort to your heart and mind.  I can help you sleep better at night, and put your mind at ease.’

Working with Archangel Azrael:

Azrael’s aura is a beautiful shade of vanilla cream, a very pale yellow tone.  He surrounds grieving and dying persons with this loving light to bring comfort.  When Azrael is around, you may see eggshell-colored twinkling lights in a room.

The crystal, creamy yellow calcite is calibrated to Azrael’s energy, so holding or wearing it may lend additional comfort.”

Today’s FLP Report:

begins with this view from downtown recently.


             Then, today, we saw another Virginia.  (So, of course, Dan had to sing the song.  Loudly.)

             We also noticed two Michigans within half an hour of one another, not the same vehicle just staying close to us.  Then earlier in the week, one Wisconsin, a BC, some plate that got past us (could have been Texas, but doubtful), and an Ohio.
