Action Steps

             Our message is brought to us by a small rental house.  No, not ours, a different one.  The Air BnB residence that Daniel’s family stayed in this week when all of the hotels in town were Sold Out.  (Yes, even mine.)

             It’s simple, like so many of the reminders we recieve.  It’s also important, and timely.

be the help we need

             The owners of this bungalow are active in their community.  They care about their fellow humans.  I like that in a landlady/landlord.

             This message, this call to action, this involvement, it helps us to remember that it doesn’t take huge gestures to make huge progress in positive ways.

             Do a small thing, make a large impact.  Change our world for the better.  Reach out.  Smile, connect.  Lend a hand.  Share.  Donate.  Give back.

             Make a difference.

On The Plus Side

             Living with Intention is the goal.  Being Purposeful, that’s where we want to be.  Walking in LovingKindness, our aim.  Honestly?  We know how challenging this all is.

             However, we KEEP trying.  We begin every day, fresh, ready to attempt it somemore.  We live perpetually in Hope.

             This week we are celebrating some family birthdays, and a family visit.  I am focusing on what a wonderful opportunity this is, I am not going to worry or stress or panic.  (See how I’m telling you all this?  I’m doing it INTENTIONALLY.)

             The reason, the message, right now is that we are surrounded by garbage humans disguised as leaders and people of power, we are dealing with tragedies (foreign, domestic, personal), we are facing so many scary and shitty things that we MUST aim towards Light, and Love, and Positive.  We truly must.  It’s the only way to survive and to help.

             Here’s what the Universe wants us to hear:

Rise Above

             We are being instructed to Choose Joy, to face the fears and keep moving forward.  Count our blessings, not our troubles.

             Even if it is simply a few moments alone with deep breathing.  So long as we are putting our Positives out there, we are making a difference. Be enraged about injustice, yes.  But also, sit in a Zen and Calm place, sending out Hope, be one of many who shares LovingKindness.

            Our (still incomplete) card altar brings the most perfect validation.  (And when my camera malfunctioned [again], I didn’t fall apart, I just kept going, I used something else, and I made it work.)

rise above

“Angel of Pleasure

Take Pleasure in the things you do.

The message for you today is to start to take pleasure in all the things you do.

It’s not all about hard work, achievement, and performance.  What is important is that you make the most of every moment in your life.

Start to do more things that bring you pleasure and that bring pleasure to those you love, work, study, and play with.

Try it.  You may be surprised to find that when things become pleasurable, you accomplish more, with less stress and effort.”

             We took the baby on some errands, it was delightful.  But then, so is she.

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
