It’s What We Can Do

             We live in a flawed world, with rules made up by people.  This is true.  But what is also true is that there are real rules.

             Universal Law is on a higher plane and of more value than the back-and-forth of ignorant, petulant man-babies.

             We feel confused because in our physical bodies it seems like we need to heed both.  In a way, we do.  However, we don’t need to be overwhelmed by either.

             Here’s what I’m hearing:

steady, with care.

             I understand this to mean that we can detach, we can employ SelfCare, we can reach out, or we can burrow down.  Whatever is the best fit for each of us, as individuals, we should do that.

             We absolutely do not have to be so entrenched in the news, the worry, the fear mindset that it sends us spinning out of control.

             Allow that “control” to wash away; we can allow ourselves to be calm, steady, at ease, of zen mind and soul (the body will follow).

             A great lesson for me lately has been to simply “be” in this small house we now call home.  I visit the different rooms, spend time in the space there.  I am not (as!) impatient about FINISHING!!! every corner, every shelf, every wall.

             I softly and slowly, with care, envision how each small area will look, eventually.  I rest there, I breathe there, I simply am there.

             Practicing this patience is dual purpose.  I’m stepping (literally) away from the frenzy, the media, the stupidity which makes my blood boil, and I walk (literally) in to a calm, steady place.  It’s like a moving meditation.

             I believe it can be done anywhere, and I encourage others to try it.  We can’t change all the rules, but we can change our attitude about them.  We can stay involved and current, but we don’t need to let the chaos infect us or our emotions.

             Here is the card I was drawn to as I listened and channeled and typed; as a validation, of course, it’s perfect.

stay steady and calm

“Inner Calling  ~  2

You can choose to see your biggest challenges as your best opportunities for inner change and growth.  The trials and ordeals we experience in life are actually for our soul’s evolution.

Take a moment to reflect back on past difficulties and identify how those experiences have made you stronger and wiser.

Now, turn your attention to the present, reminding yourself to take the drama out of your challenges and try to see how they are serving you.

Affirmation:

I choose to see challenges as ideal opportunities to work on my inner self.

I look for the blessings in all situations, past and present.

I am connected to the positive aspects of my experience.”

Hills and Valleys, Ins and Outs

             Some days are simply more challenging than others.  I hit a rough patch this week (several, actually).  The dates next week (and the ones right after) won’t help get me past that.

            What HAS been encouraging and uplifting, is my family. I truly hope that wherever you are, whoever you are, you have the kind of support I do.  If you do not?  Contact me, I’ll send you a virtual hug and we can chat.

             As I said in our last post, I’m very fortunate to have someone who picks me up when I stumble.  We also have three incredibly brilliant and kind (adult) children.  As a bonus, I have a mom and dad who adore me and are just up the highway.

             When we are struggling, as I have been lately, it’s helpful to go within, to see what messages our Team has for us.  As if in total validation, this card came up.  It is the entire message right now.

             Well, that and a reminder.  Focus on the haves, leave those have-nots for someone else to worry about.

More than three and a half decades worth.

             It’s anniversary week (end).  Not for the website, but for my actual, real life, marriage.  35 years since the wedding, (almost) 37 years since I went to get gas that fateful day.

             We’re going to leave town.  Not far.  But enough “away” to have some space and to remember who we are.  Where we came from.  Where our starting point was.

             When I sat down to listen for this post, I was gifted so many memories of our amazing journey.  The road has by no means been smooth, nor luxurious.   It has absolutely been a chaotic fucking ride!

             Here’s what the Universe would like us all to focus on, as we firmly seat ourselves in gratitude for those who have helped us get to this day, this destination:

do the work/feel the feelings

             The thing about being married to the same person for so long is that you kind of get to know them a bit.  (Some of us are better at this than the other.  And it’s not the one you might think.)

             In relationships, as in so many aspects of our life, when we have emotions arise, if they are not acknowledged, they become stuck and rotting and toxic.   When we don’t do the tiny jobs we need to accomplish, then they pile up and become huge tasks we can barely face.

             To tally this many years (semi-)successfully, both halves must do their part, both halves must honour their emotions.  If one falls or flounders, it’s on their partner to do the picking up.

             I fall down a ton.  He always picks me up.  There have been points when he needed me to pick him up, I hope I did as well as he has.

             And I hope for everyone reading this, that they too, have someone to pick up, and someone who will pick them up.

             This is the deck I was directed to for our continuing message.  It is entirely appropriate.  Also, look at the number…..

psychic sense

“Visions  ~  37  ~

Psychic images, clairvoyance, seeing, out of body travel

Mermaids do much of their work, their spirit work, by moonlight.  Under moonlight we can see so much more of what is taking place with each other’s energetic space, and the layers of our energetic field …..

When you connect to the moon, you will feel more whole, more attuned to the cycles of the world, and the fears you may have had around certain issues will fade.  You will allow yourself to see with your psychic vision, and you will speak of what you see …..

You will begin to understand and easily interpret the divine in alliance with your spiritual sense.”

Answers and Alleviation

             The past few weeks I’ve been feeling increasingly overwhelmed.  As in the way of all things, (see last post re: thinking and being), the Universe stepped in.  Pun unintentional, but highly appropriate.

             Wanna guess who had to make a visit to Urgent Care and got sent home with instructions to stay off her feet for the next 4 days? Yeah, this witch.

             The eclipse, politics, Mercury retrograde, debt, work problems, increasingly painful edema, and now a new (wtf?) foot situation.  It was just adding up to equal: too much.

             I went to see a medical professional and she shut it all down.   She became the voice of Source.  She said, “no more” and she was the last word.

             Thanks, Powers That Be.  I’m listening.  And now, I’m staying home, elevating my lower appendages, practicing Self-Care, and being here in the small house which is now our home.

             As I paid attention to what the signs were telling me, I heard this:

Timelessness

             We have many lives, many chances, many adventures.  If it all doesn’t get done RIGHT NOW that’s fine.  We have tomorrow.  We have next week.  We have next year, and all the years/tomorrows after that.

             We are being reminded that the Journey is where our focus needs to lie.  Aim for the enjoyment, the lesson, the tiny moment of pleasure.

             Once again, it’s about being present.  Being in this time.  And if some shit has to be transferred to tomorrow’s list (or some tomorrows in the future) that’s perfectly okay.  We’ll get there.  We always do.

            Time does not “run out” nor does it disappear.  It wrinkles, it rolls over, it moves along, it meanders down its own path.

             And as a validation, we see that it also turns like a wheel.

Wheel of Fortune  ~10  ~ reversed

             Or, as I like to read them, with a tweak.  This view shows us that we’ve all been around the block.  We’ve seen the ups and downs.

             What changes is not the Wheel, but how we see it.  There are lean times and times of plenty.  There are times when we feel like we need a break, and then, maybe we can go on a vacation/take a day trip/slip off for a nap.

             A new cycle has begun, and we are rolling around in the middle of it.  Transitions surround us.  The dust has begun to settle.  We’re finding our groove after having lost the beat.

             Basically, no matter what today feels like, we know tomorrow is there.  An opportunity.  A new fresh day, filled with potential.  Time turns, it is gifted to us.  We can choose to embrace it, or not.

Make, Materialize, Manifest

             Some of us are letter people, some feel more comfortable with numbers.  I have a new co-worker, who, like me, is all about the words.

             We’ve been having a great time lately discussing, examining, and laughing over etymology, creative speech, literature, and language.

             And in the way of all things “me” this (obviously!) drove us directly into our message here.

Think, say, create.

             What we talk about, what words we use in our heads, and later outloud, they matter.  They have value and weight.

             We manifest what we say we’re going to.  Whether it’s positive or negative.  We create it, by thinking it, by saying it, by talking about it, by writing about it.

            We bring to life exactly what we’re thinking and what we’re speaking.  This is a Universal truth.

             All we need to do?  Simply remember that fact.  Because it’s happening, constantly, continuously, whether we realize it or not.  Much better to know it, and to shape it in a more useful and loving manner than to stay on a path of not-what-we-want.

             And if we’re concerned we can’t take control of our thoughts, our ideas?  Well, we can always ask for help.  Which will lead us to the answer we’ve been given here (in the form of one of my most favorite images).

“Protection

Your prayers and questions, which ask for safety and protection, have been heard and answered.  Any attacks or threats are now a thing of the past, washed away with the tide of Heavenly love.

This love is clearing way your insecurities so that you can feel totally safe.

             (It is never a hardship for me to be spend time in my own company, in fact, it seems as though, for this entire incarnation, I’ve been trying to get some alone hours.)
