More evolving.

             Most of us are perpetual students.  Learning and reaching.  Others feel perfectly comfortable As Is, and without the need to find life lessons, to seek answers.

             I’ve come to understand that I’m kind of an in-between.  There’s not always somewhere to take an investigation, to me.  Sometimes I feel as though I’ve come to the end of my interest on that topic.  Other places, other times, I’d like to keep finding out more.

             This is what’s been in my head lately.  Both ways are fine.  As is the way of doing a little of both.  When we follow the obvious path, we still learn.  When we step off the trodden road, we learn in a different way.

             The Universe is calling it

true higher education.

             We’re talking soul lessons, deep down education of our spirit.  Learning in our own individual way, and going as far as we feel comfortable with.  The follow-up can be brief, or take ages to reach.

             We know now that our own way is best for us, and the way of others suits them better.  If we don’t know it, well …. maybe we can strive to.

             When we recognize our unique geniuses, apply our own best practices and methods, we can climb so much higher, we can advance so much more smoothly.  Part of that though, is to honour our rate, our tools, as well as our flaws, our “failures” (even though they aren’t really failures at all).

             Our message right now focuses on the particular and wonderfully singular nature of each one of us.  And how we use that to do better, every day.  No matter how this advancement, this spiraling up, may appear or manifest.  The lessons are our own, and that’s the most important part.

             Here for validation, this reminder.  So welcome, and so appropriate.

abundance and wealth

“Citrine  ~

wealth, creativity, abundance, healing

Your financial concerns will soon begin to dissolve as a steady stream of abundance starts to flow into many areas of your life.

This is not abundance solely on a monetary level but abundance also of creativity and healing.

You are being asked to let go of any fear and guilt you may be holding on to in regard to your wealth and prosperity.

Be thankful for the abundance that you are about to receive.  Honour it and put it to use in ways that nurture and replenish your spirit.

You deserve to be and to have all your heart desires.

Lovingly recognise the abundance you eternally hold within your heart and you will manifest abundance through all you think, say, and do.”

Revealing Autonomy

             Following along with yesterday’s theme, this morning I woke up to abundant scenes of a similar attitude.  The feel was very freeing and open.

             As we now know, the less we resist, the less resistance there is.  So today’s message is pretty sensible.


             Are we able to enter 2015 with our true selves showing?  Because that’s what the Universe is recommending.  That we wear nothing false, nothing negative.

             It’s not as scary as it sounds, though.  Once we get the hang of just being genuine, it becomes the most direct route to healing.  Making our lessons that much easier to learn.

             To mark the calendar transition, and to get us going on this liberating and truthful path, I was directed to our Special Occasion cards.  Numerically, today (as I write this) is the start of a new cycle:

January + First + 2015 = 10, or One.  This draw adds down to a 2.  The sequence is significant.  As is the definition.

abundance messages

“Grey Kangaroo  ~  29  ~  Abundance

When questioned about what wealth means to you, would you say that having copious amounts of money would definitely seal the deal?  If so, it would be a good answer – but the wrong one.

To focus exclusively on the acquisition of money only amplifies how little you have.  When you concentrate on your desire to attain money, you are effectively nurturing ‘poverty mentality,’ a state of mind supported by society and inherited ways of thinking.  It feeds poverty mentality because it prevents you from seeing the wealth that surrounds you everyday; the wealth that comes with family and friends.

To know true love is to hold supreme wealth.  When you know that wealth rarely takes the form of money or gold, you release the monetary mindset so fear of lack can be transmuted into trust.  In doing so, the block obstructing your stream of abundance may be removed forever and greater cash flow will result.  Letting go of lack will essentially result in gain.

Grey Kangaroo once offered its rich meat, warm pelt, and strong bones, which were useful as cutting and digging implements.  Prosperity meant healthy children, a full stomach, and a warm, dry sleeping place to the people.  They believed the land would provide all they needed and, if they lived in harmony with the Earth Mother, their life would be safe and plentiful as a result.  So long as the Grey Kangaroo was there, the people knew that they would never know hunger or suffering.  Its mere existence promised true abundance.

If Grey Kangaroo has vaulted into your cards today, your life will soon be rich with productive emotion, thought, and knowledge.  These fundamentals will abundantly serve the personal needs of both you and your family.  What you require is currently manifesting and your needs are soon to be met.

Grey Kangaroo reminds us to always separate what we want from what we need, before commencing the hunt for either.  To seek what we materialistically want above what we realistically need, will result in continued stagnation.

Grey Kangaroo’s appearance acts as a reminder that as children of the Earth, it is our birthright to have all our requirements fulfilled – so long as our requests are offered in a sacred way.”

More Kind

              Does it seem like we’re talking a lot about “perspective” lately?   That’s because we are.  Messages arrive like broccoli, in clumps and bunches.

             This morning I saw a scene which made me uncomfortable.  The annoyance was very real, and I found my honest reaction was über judge-y.  Often, that’s our response.

             So, we’re discussing it again.  We need to let go, we need to figure out the Why.  We must go within, and truly observe what our feelings are, and how they got there.

             We are being reminded, in this instance, to use our:

Love Eyes.

             To apply them as much as possible.  To wear the truest vision, with the most heart.  To see honestly and with care.

             Yesterday’s idea of gratitude and appreciation is one way to accomplish this, and another is where I was drawn to on our card altar.


“Pleasure  ~  9  ~  Divine Goddess

Fulfillment, Abundance, Satisfaction, Contentment

The Divine Goddess smiles upon you, urging you to step into her luscious and beautiful garden and drink from her well of vitality and joy.

Relax, have fun, and allow the good times to roll.  Life is to be enjoyed, not endured.  Whether it’s a fun day at the beach, or a rousing sexual romp with your lover, the Divine Goddess reminds you that there’s nothing holy, superior, or righteous in resisting pleasure or hiding your beauty.

She has stepped into your life to remedy the sad fact that you are not taking joy in much of anything of late and have lost touch with your beauty.  Life is at risk of becoming too black and white and shades of gray, and you’re missing color.

She sweetly advises you not to postpone your rewards until you’re in heaven – instead, she encourages you to enjoy a little heaven on Earth.  Indulge your soul in some delicious food, good music, close friends, and playful fun.  Use her sparkle to inspire you to embellish your environment.

 Redecorate: add a splash of color to your beige walls, bring in fresh flowers, and make yourself beautiful as well . . . . . accept yourself as a beautiful human being.

This is a harvest, a time of abundance and flow.  Share your beauty with others, be generous, and don’t fret about overindulging or getting carried away.  Get used to the beautiful life, and consider it your birthright to dance in the Divine Goddess’s garden.

Her question to you: how good can you stand it?”

Ask Your Guides Oracle Cards by Sonia Choquette

Today’s Power Statement:

I affirm my absolute right to be happy, healthy, prosperous, and loved.


Precisely Important

             Very often, when we go through big highs and lows / confusing or challenging life events, we are better able to see our selves more clearly.  The fluff-and-nonsense is blown away and our true strength emerges.  Our honest character is revealed.

             This morning the Universe showed me specific and unambiguous views of . . . . .

Definitive Decisiveness

             And affirmative resolution.  We are being reminded that while our primary purpose is to do well, and help others, it is also to be true and kind to ourself.  To honour and adore the beauty which IS each of us.

             When a choice arrives, we can be as clear as the most perfect diamond: yes or no?  What would serve our soul best?  Which way will lead toward our heart’s desire?

             As Spider said yesterday, those Divine strands can take us to many places.  But the places which will be the most beneficial, and the places that sing to our still and quiet self, are the ones we need to aim our intentions towards.

             On our card altar today, I was directed to this bonus draw.  It will help us with the message, and keep us focused on the best strand to follow.

angel messages, oracle cards, prioritize, decisiveness,

“Prioritize  ~

Archangel Metatron:

‘Focus on your highest priorities.  I will help  you get organized and motivated.’

Additional Message:

‘What is your calling?  What makes your heart sing?  When you focus on these areas, your joyful energy increases, which benefits everyone.

Take charge of your schedule, and spend more time on projects and activities close to your heart.  Make choices that honor your priorities and support your life’s mission.’

Working with Archangel Metatron:

… he helps people develop organizational record-keeping skills… when you call upon Metatron, he motivates you to organize your priorities.”

             Sounds like what we also heard from the Gateway draw two days ago.  But, additionally, I have to tell you that I never look at the guidebook’s definition until I’m sitting here and transcribing it into the post.  I had no clue that so many of the same ideas, words, and phrases were going to be repeated!

             (Ha, I love when that happens.)

is this shot from earlier in the week.



             Plus one that I took a quick phone photo of while driving, which didn’t quite work out.  It was a traditional, old style New Mexico.  And then today, I recognized one from Illinois.

See It, Be It

             One of the traps many of us fall in to is the belief that “here we are” is all there is.  That, when we’re in a situation (or a way of life) we have to stay there.

             This couldn’t be farther from the truth.  We can (and really, should) do as much as we like.  Go as far as our heart takes us.

Consider what was previously thought impossible.

             The Universe is such a vast and amazing place, there truly are miracles waiting to happen.  To us.

             As yesterday’s daily draw told us, “dream it” to make that our reality, so too does the card today validate this message.

             (This is one of my favorite illustrations, in a deck full of wonderful images.)

“Treasure Chest  ~

‘An unforeseen windfall of new abundance come to you now!’

Your prayers for financial support have been heard, and assistance is here for you now.  It comes in wonderfully unexpected ways.

Remain in a state of gratitude that says that the money is already here, even if there’s no visible evidence of it yet.  When you feel grateful before the demonstration of supply occurs, it reveals your faith.  

And your faith is the energy that draws riches to you without delay.  Affirm frequently: ‘thank you for all of the support, supply, abundance, and money that you bring to me.  I am grateful for these riches, which I use in Divine ways to bring blessings to the earth.’

Your supply may show up in the form of money, or it may come as new opportunities, brilliant ideas, or gifts from others.  Bless and honor Heaven’s gifts however they come to you.

Your gratitude ensures continual, overflowing abundance in your life.”
