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.”

See?

             We haven’t talked about perception in a while.  It’s time.  Again.  To address that topic.

             Partly this is about the Attitude of Gratitude, but also it’s about conditioning.  We’ve been taught to think that some things are “better” than others.  Even when this is absolutely not the case.

             Here’s what I woke up hearing and singing:

Bright Sunshiny Day

             Where I live, we are in the middle of a very dramatic (and painful) heat wave.  (And by “in the middle of” everyone is hoping that I actually mean DEARGAWD LET IT END TODAY!)  The weather right now, is serious.

             A “bright” type of forecast is not always what I, in particular, would like for my day.  Personally, I’d prefer something that’s cooler, dimmer, more misty, and not even so “day” at all.  My favorite hours are dusk, sunset, night-times.  (Mornings are simply too sharp.)

             In our cultural parlance though, Sunshine-y is positive.  Am I wrong in my choices, or are those who prefer otherwise?  Neither.  Obviously.  It’s all in how we observe.  It’s all in how we are trained, raised.  It’s also in our hearts and emotions.

             There’s so many examples of this thought process, all around us.  When we dwell on the “negatives” (or what we’ve always been told is in the bad category), we miss out on merely having the experience of them.

             We have been conditioned to see clouds as a problem.   But, if they bring rain during a drought, isn’t that exactly what we need?  Also, like the song, then we get the rainbow.

             We need all of it, both, a variety of days and nights and temperatures and adventures.  That way, we see every direction/phase/lesson as worthwhile, necessary with diversity and appreciation for the whole.

             I was drawn straight away to this selection on our card altar.  Not an image I adore, but the messages continue, and that’s where we need to focus.

baboon

“Baboon  ~

In love and declarations of passion heartfelt communication is key.

Sublime Baboon, adept of love, wears her heart on her sleeve.  Baboon does not pretend.  Her passions and shows of affection are genuine, her reactions without artifice, so you may believe the ardent declarations of others.

Truthful, heartfelt communications and open expression of feelings are what matter now in your relationships if, like Baboon, you seek lasting love.

Hiding your emotions will leave others unsure of your intentions and reluctant to reveal their feelings, which can only lead to misunderstandings and sadness.”

             Read that one more time, “misunderstandings and sadness.”  There’s a shit-ton of planetary movement currently going on.  Be careful and be direct.  See the lesson, see the beauty.
