Gratitude Attitude Return

             We are encouraged, through uncountable religious, belief systems, and spiritual paths, to Be In The Moment.  To sit in a state of grace.  To appreciate our small gifts.

             And truthfully?  They’re right.  We absolutely should.  We absolutely need to count our blessings and not our problems.  We absolutely have to spend more time being thankful and less time complaining.

             The trick is, to do it.  To capture those:

Precious Moments.

             It is (like so damn many other aspects of this long, arduous, strange journey) simple.  But not necessarily easy.

             I did some of it today, though.  I sat.  I breathed.  I rocked.  I held my grandbaby.  I stopped time for those brief and beautiful never-to-be-captured-again fleeting moments.

             It is Self-Care of the highest order.  It is about taking the time to NOT notice time.  It’s good for us.  And sometimes, that’s the best thing.

             To perfectly personify this generosity of the soul, we have an ideal validation on our card altar right now.

“Generosity  ~  St Nicholas of Myra

You are being asked to start or continue giving time, money, assistance, or goods.  This act helps you know how much you have, and leads to a feeling of abundance that automatically attracts greater prosperity into your life.

The more you give, the more you will receive.  Contribute with joy and be totally detached from the outcome of your offering.  St Nicholas reminds us of the happiness we receive when we give to others, from the spirit of love.  

Allow yourself to be surprised at how the universe gives back to you.”

Navigational Tools

             (Seems like we have a theme developing…. I’ll just say that right off.)

             The signs we see (hear, smell, sense in every way) are direct messages, meant just for us, each with a singular purpose unto itself.  We are getting them constantly, but couldn’t possibly comprehend all of them on a daily basis.  We can, however, tune in so that the most important ones come through loud and clear.

             Those bits and pieces which are what we really need, will absolutely rise to the top.  They will show up in a clearly understandable manner when we give them a chance, when we pay attention.

             The Universe would like us to do just that, tune in and stay alert.

Notice Guidance

             We all know that the most obvious are repeating numbers, meaningful music showing up on (seemingly) occasions, feathers found, and coins crossing our paths.

             But there are more subtle ways that our Team and our loved ones on the Other Side drop hints and symbols.  There are rainbows and peculiar weather conditions, specifically colored sunsets/sunrises, formations of flowers or other physicality in nature, cloud shapes, as well as sparkling circles appearing on our photos, and words spelled out in unexpected places.

             It takes a lot of energy for these signs to appear and manifest in tangible ways, so it’s the least we can do to acknowledge and honour those who sent them.  Saying a simple “thank you” when we become aware is all they need to hear.

             Stop, breathe, take a quick quiet moment; be grateful, tell them how much you appreciate the effort, and then, remember to take that message to heart.  They aren’t sending them for no reason!

             On our card altar, we were handed a validation and a promise on exactly this topic.

“Brilliant Idea!

Archangel Uriel:

‘Yes, your idea is Divinely guided . . . please take action to bring your idea to fruition.’

Additional Message:

‘Your idea is an answered prayer.  Even though it may push you past your comfort zone, know that you are never given anything that you can’t handle.  Ask for, and be willing to receive, all of the support that you need to bring this idea to fruition.

Know that we will all be there, every step of the way, and you can ask me for help at any time.  I’m especially glad to give you ideas and creative insights to support your life’s purpose.’

Working with Archangel Uriel:

Uriel’s energy is pale yellow, like the glow of a candle.  Whenever you need ideas or intellectual guidance, contact Uriel.  His energy is aligned with the amber crystal.”

Adequacy Aplenty

             We’re going to turn things around today, because of how and when our message arrived.  No worries, it’s still me (the radio), just coming in from another direction.

             We’ll begin with this affirmation from Louise Hay.  (She of the Heal Your Life phenomenon.)

“I appreciate all that I do, I am good enough just as I am.”

             One of the struggles many of us have is an assured knowledge that we are not enough.  The nagging fear that we are inadequate, that we are constantly failing someone somewhere somehow.

             When we validate ourselves, reminding the entire self that we ARE enough (whether out-loud or silently in our mediation/prayer time) it resonates.  We can feel it ringing true.

             The problem arises when we doubt.  We question.  We waver in our convictions.  In essence, we lose faith.  In ourselves.

             The Universe wants to remind us that we are, as Louise says, very much enough.  We are, in all reality, more than enough.  We are complete and we are sacred and we (by our very existence, our being here, learning these lessons and asking these questions) are whole and then some.

             In my upstairs hall, I see this right now.  Strong and sure.  Deeply affirming, spiritually inspiring.

conquering self-doubt

A gift, for the entire month of September.

             After this calendar is finished, I’ll be keeping the above page.  (Maybe, I can even figure out how to frame it.)

             For now, we’ll be using it as our inspiration, and signal that we cannot fail.  We simply are too terrific, the very embodiment of enough, no matter what our brain sometimes tries to tell us.

             Looking with our soul eyes, we know the truth.  We know how valuable we are.  (We just have to keep saying it.)

Sweepingly Successful

             Whatever we’re working on?  It’s getting extremely close to being done.  Completion is on our horizon.

             Having confidence and courage in our own creations and achievements is key right now.  We have to know that this is a joyful process/situation.

             What I was shown this morning focuses on…….

more action.

             First of all, we must be reassured that we have WAY more support in this venture than we could ever imagine.  What today’s message is talking about has loads to the with our own inner strength, but also how we are not alone in this endeavour.

             We can get shit done!  Even if it sometimes seems as though we aren’t making any progress.  We can.  And we will.

             Moving forward, being active in this sense, doesn’t mean jumping around like we’re on fire constantly.  Sure, movement is probably involved, but it might also be more about the deed, plan, or non-physical involvement.

             Remember, the choices often times can be mental or spiritual.  Nature is never still, but we don’t SEE the plants growing or the sun moving.

             On our card altar though, we’re being congratulated on this excellent achievement.  And that’s never bad.

divine helpers

“Victory  ~  15  ~  Divine Helpers

Triumph, Leadership, Success, Accomplishment

Your Divine Helpers are present, bearing good news that whatever you’ve been working on will succeed.  The bad news . . . . well, there really isn’t any bad news, but there is reality, which in your case suggests that you can fully enjoy your success only if you recognize that you didn’t get where you are by yourself.

This isn’t to say that you must diminish your light or be falsely modest in your achievements – not by a long shot!  You deserve to shine, so please do.

Your Divine Helpers simply remind you to be grateful, and acknowledge the contributions of those who have helped you get where you are.  This includes your spirit helpers and guides as well.

One final word:

with success comes the challenge of standing alone in your light.  Of course you’ve heard of the saying ‘it’s lonely at the top.  But it doesn’t have to be if you remember how you got there.  

Your Divine Helpers’ message is to ‘share the spotlight’.”

Appropriately Favorable

             Today our message began with colours.  Autumnal shades, to be exact.  Even though, all around us we are looking at spring greens (and in many places, here included, it’s more about the soggy wet grays and blues).

             I was shown some deep burnt orange shades, and a faded golden yellow.  With these loud words:

an open door.

             The image was of us being observant, aware, answering the call.  Like this opportunity is merely a knock away.  We are being presented with some choices and select chances of greatness.

             We need do nothing more than keep our awareness honed and at the ready.  See, hear, watch, listen…… there will be signs.  There will be messages.  Our job right now is to notice them.

             And then, make the best of them.  Utilize what is being handed to us.  Don’t let this gift slip past.

opportunities

           We’re being encouraged to walk down that road, take the next step, flow with what comes our way.  That’s what the Universe wants us to pay attention to.  That’s where our next great adventure will be.

Affirmation:

I am open to new opportunities.

I am able to decide on the right opportunities for me to learn and grow.

I attract the right opportunity at the right time.

I have complete clarity.
