Divine Positioning

             This afternoon I carved out a couple of hours to spend time in the company of a like-minded soul.  It was a mundane errand cloaked in joy.  We made our own fun.

             He and I know that we’ve wandered other lives together, wearing different bodies, but still the same spirits.  We are planning some more afternoons.

             What’s been in my head, even before today, humming loudly, is how we find each other.  How our paths cross at exactly the proper and correct moment.  At that point in both of our lives when we need each other the most.

             This is connected to last week’s message, because it’s still focused on Time, but now, it’s also about

the placement.

             That old cliche of being in the right place at the right time, or even, the wrong place at the wrong time, is not valid.  We are where we’ve PUT ourselves when we need to be in that place.

             Right place, or wrong place.  That’s a construct not known on the plane we all come from/return to.  Good time, bad time, same idea.

             Is the place or time benefiting to us both, to us all?  Then it’s good, even if, by some standards, it might seem bad.  The trick is to relax in to the plan we made before we put on these bodies; tune in to the blueprint, and allow ourselves to make these soul-connections, the remembered friendships we’ve treasured before.

             Another side of this same concept is about letting go of the old, no-longer useful burdens (even if some of them may be relationships).  And, turns out, here’s our validation.

Marathoning,

            At my “day” job, there is a co-worker (one of my bosses, actually), who is fond of telling me to “trust the process” when I’m in the middle of a petulant tantrum of injustice.

             This phrase has been on my mind lately, not only because he’s correct in his advice, but because when we recall how we all set our own plans in motion, devised our own blueprints, gathered with our Team and came up with this particular life’s path, the “process” is exactly what we are immersed in, daily.

             When I’m feeling at my lowest (recent global news has not been helping), I try to rest my mind and recall that I made these choices.  I intentionally placed my soul in this body, right here…… the only question then becomes, why?

             And that, is our message.  We need only wait, trusting our earlier selves, our spirit-selves, to know what and when would be the most perfect way for us to learn and grow.

It’s about Time.

             As we’ve always been told, patience is a virtue.  Well, I’ve bristled at and struggled with this forEVER.  Turns out, the virtuous part is not necessarily valid, but the patience aspect, that certainly is.

             To worry and fret and whine and bitch gets us nowhere but unhappy.  Waiting, however, and viewing our blessings, acknowledging our gifts, this helps to ease the passage of time, just long enough for us to look back, glancing over our shoulders to the recent past, and seeing the “why” as well as the “when” as we notice patterns and reasons.

             To trust that we’ve originally laid things out for our highest and best possible good is a waiting game.  It can be trying and annoying as fuck, but it’s a Universal Truth.  Time, truly, will tell.

             It will tell us that we have chosen well.  It will tell us the process is a good one.  It can also tell us that if those selections aren’t going in a direction we now like, we can change them.

             And in perfect validation, here is our draw.

it's about time

“Making a Choice  ~  30

You are required to come to a decision now.

You’re faced with a dilemma or a fork in the road and must make a conscious choice regarding the next right action.  

Whatever that choice is, you must take responsibility for it – yet you needn’t be afraid.  You may not have all the answers right now, because the way ahead can’t be known until you have embarked and traveled a few steps.

Trust your intuition.  Ask for a sign from the spirit world and you will be led to the right path.

If you remain conscious and aware, your selection will be the right one at this time.  Life is always about learning.

Success lies in choosing consciously, guided by your Inner Voice and heeding the messages that the Universe sends you.”

             Autumnal Equinox has come and gone, the Full Moon is just ending, evenings are chilly, the sun has moved, it’s most definitely a new season.  I am embarrassing the changes, and hoping that you are, too.

             It’s a process, but I’m trusting in it.

a spark

             My week has mostly been a lot of work.  Also, a lot of work on healing.

             To “do better” or “get better” often we must put effort and energy into it.  I’ve been trying to be successful.  I’ll keep going, keep at it ……

             encouraging you to do the same.

             Our message is simply this:

light

             On my new front porch, in the small house where we now live, appeared a box.  It was accompanied by a handwritten card.  and this gift.

spark in the dark

             She sent me Light.  I needed it.  Now, I am sharing it.

thank you, my friend, for being there when I needed you most

Growth

             Every.  Single.  Day.  We are granted educational opportunities.  It is our task to find them, and share them.  (We get more than one, but probably less than a million.)

             Some are obvious, way obvious.  They are clear and easy to understand, they make sense.  Others, well, they can be like a spiritual Easter Egg hunt, elusive and hiding.

              We all pass along our lessons in different and individual ways, none better than any other.  Some of us, like those loved ones who went Home early, had less time to learn and to teach.  But their lessons are as valid as someone who shares for twice as long.

             It’s so very important to honour every type, evenly, lovingly, and fairly.

             This is where the message is taking us right now:

find it, acknowledge it, give it.

             To share, is key.  We can learn and gather, but if we don’t share and give some of ours to others, it doesn’t help; doesn’t help us, doesn’t help those who we could be learning from, in our own sharing.

             This has been a difficult journey, no doubt about it, but it’s also been so fucking FULL!  The downs are terrible, the ups are amazing, but the in-betweens are where we spend most of our time.

            To be grateful for all, every lesson, is where the Universe wants us to focus.  We are here to learn, and …… to teach.  It’s the sharing.  Really, it is.

             I have to say that my old Nikon digital camera has been misbehaving lately.  I can’t take any photos with it at the current moment.  I may need a replacement.

             For this post, I’m being directed to search in our archives and come up with the perfect complimentary view.

             No card draw, just this, a shot I saved from December of 2015, it fits.  Our North Jetty, in Florence, as the sun sets.  All that sand, it used to be someplace else, and now, it makes a walkway, covering the rocks.

             Things change, and we move forward.  We treasure the past, but we have to cast our eyes ahead, while living here, in this moment.  Now.

Waiting for the Better

             I found out a little while ago that Kathy Griffin lost her sister to cancer today.  It was kind of my last straw on a very challenging afternoon.

             Every year now, I expect that this week (and my birthday week) won’t take me down.  And every year, for the past decade, I’ve been hit hard.

             This post is mostly a placeholder.  Just to let you all know, I’m here and I’m going to make it, it’s just so fucking hard.  Grief is stupid and I’m sick of it.

             Take care of yourselves, and each other, do something that feeds your soul, even if that means feeding your body.

             We can only keep showing up, and that’s enough for now.
