Change?  It happens.  Progress?  We hope for it.  Evolution?  An obvious truth.  We live in a world which never stops moving.

             In my family, we are non-traditionalists.  For calendar holidays, we work, while others celebrate.  I can’t count the number of Thanksgivings where we’ve gathered on the following Sunday or Monday.

             This past week, for a Sunday event, we got together, in various combinations throughout the day and night, on that Thursday before.

             In the past few days I’ve had personal emergencies, unexpected tragedies, and plain old life situations, all of which have caused me to approach my current journey in a new (different!) and unaccustomed way.

             Why all of this?  Because, if we don’t

make adjustments

we die.  We cease existing in our physical form.  We falter, and often feel as though we’ve failed.

             This message is about acknowledging that “yeah, this sucks” but it doesn’t need to stop us from continuing.  It is not necessary to flounder, never to rise above.

            All of this doesn’t mean I’m not down.  Truthfully?  It’s been full-time residence in Depression City.  There’s great waves of sorrow.  Sadness and grief?  Fully present.

             Whatever are our individual circumstances, it simply proves that we CAN move forward in the face of . . . . . . of nearly any fucking thing that gets thrown at us.

             Do we want to rise above and be the better person right now?  Oh, hell to the no.  Are we able to?  Yep, pretty much every damn time.

            We can, and we do.  After.  After some reflection.  After some sobbing.  After adjusting and recalibrating, we can move forward.  We can survive.  We can (eventually!), once more, even thrive.

            (Just, ya know, give us a minute here.)

             As validation, and as a reminder of our strength, we are presented with this, a stone of great power.

“turquoise  ~

speaking one’s truth, clear communication, purification

Don’t be afraid to speak your truth.  A situation that is causing you concern can easily be resolved by simply expressing how you truly feel.

You will not hurt nor upset anyone by speaking your truth.  In fact, speaking your truth has the opposite effect to what you think.  

By communicating your feelings and preferences clearly and honestly all concerned will be relieved.  At present, others are rather confused because they sense that all is not the way you are purporting it to be.

This magical Turquoise crystal will help you ease any fear you have regarding clear and true communication with either yourself or others.”

A Welcome Return.

             The messing of Mercury got me again today.  Or maybe it was simply my Swiss cheese brain.  Either way, our afternoon went slightly sideways.

             We pared everything down to one errand (before The Deputy had to leave for work) that just involved my parents.  And as Mom said, “oh Honey, I’m so sorry.   Forgetting shit is all my fault.”  She’s right, as usual.  Genetics being what they are.

             None of this detracted from our daily draw or message, nor did my continuing work towards getting interviews set up for next week.  THAT was done earlier.  The dream, card, and image I’ll be sharing below, all coalesce into one healing gift.

Clear thinking,

open communication.

             Echoing yesterday’s guidebook definition, we’re being advised to continue with our direct truthfulness.  We ARE worth it, and we ARE entitled to living a peaceful, joyous life.

“Angel of Guidance  ~

A renewed sense of direction and purpose will soon manifest.

You have felt a bit lost and confused lately, perhaps not sure of which direction to take.  The Angel of Guidance has felt your silent cries for help and is here to guide you upon your soul’s chosen path.

Close your eyes for a few moments and feel a healing, calming, and clarifying light swell from your heart centre.  Feel it expand through to your auric field creating an aura of rainbow light around you.  In your mind’s eye, imagine before you a beautiful golden path surrounded by the lush foliage of trees and flowers, and visualise yourself upon this path heading towards the sun beyond the horizon.

The golden path symbolises your journey in this life, while the sun is the reflection of your soul which is your guiding light.  Stop trying to figure it all out and simply trust, for you are always on the right path whether you know it or not.  

Practice the golden path meditation a little each day and surrender all to your angel of guidance who is here to help you.  You will have a renewed sense of direction and purpose very soon.

Trust and love!”

             The card before today’s, in this deck, was the last of that rotation, so I shuffled them and began again.  When I saw that this was the Golden Path meditation, I was thrilled with the reminder.

             Look what I carry around with me, all over the house.   And often, out of it.

post it notes, meditation, the golden  path, reminders

One of many.
Post It Notes!

             We can’t argue that when we calm our busy minds, and quiet our loud thoughts, we feel better.  And then, the healing has begun.

             Beautiful vista, isn’t it?  The noise inside of our vehicle was less than serene though, more like shrill.  “Stop the car.  Dammit Dan, stop!”  He was very accommodating.   Eventually.  So ya know, enjoy this.  From us, to you.
