             We recently discovered a fascinating series produced by the BBC.  Each episode features a “genius” and they tell that person’s story.  Clearly, and with historic accuracy.  Which is fun.

             What is less entertaining is how so many of our great thinkers have also suffered, been misinterpreted, and never lived to see their work recognized.  I know there’s a plan, but it sometimes makes me sad.

             Like how I can’t always enjoy sporting events because I don’t want any side to lose.  I wish every player and fan could come out a winner.  Is it so much to ask that we all live happily ever after?

             Apparently, that’s not what we’re here for.  Which, as I said, I know.  But the knowing doesn’t much alleviate the struggle, some days.

             Directly from the Universe, to me and you, here’s where to turn:

rise above.

             My mother, and niece, and I are what people call “women of strong faith” even though none of us are remotely religious.  We believe, we know, we entirely feel in a spiritual way.  So, when challenges arise, roadblocks appear, we seek answers.

              My own recent medical and work situation has caused me to really search for meaning.  It’s been difficult.  Daily.

             Which makes this message so much more meaningful, on a personal level, but also on a global one.  We are being instructed to find our detours.  Go around, move past, let go, and yes….. rise above.

             To do this, we have to focus.  Then, we have to walk away.  We can’t spend time suffering or whining, or screaming at problems.  Because in truth, there are no problems.  Merely lessons that we haven’t quite figured out.  Yet.

             Here’s an old Doreen affirmation that I feel will help us:

             My heart, my mind, my life, and everyone in it are perfectly at peace right now.

no such thing as problems

To rise, and go above

Our Un-Tidiness

             We’ve definitely spoken before about how our adventure here sometimes leads us down roads and paths we never anticipated traveling.  Well.  I went there this week.  Literally, and figuratively.

             A bit of (formerly mysterious) health situation has now been clearly diagnosed.  And treated (if that’s the right term for: excising).  I’ve had my gallbladder removed, emergency-surgery style.

             What do we learn from shit like this?  Not to take ANYthing for granted, sure.  Not to let a day go by without saying nice words to loved ones, certainly.

             But, also:

life is messy!

             We wear messy bodies, making our messy little journeys, as we experience (and hopefully savor) messy existences.

             Nothing is tidy, nothing is sure, nothing is static.  We, daily, waver and change.  We grow and we have set-backs.  Most of all, we have our lives.   And they, unquestionably, can be a bit of a mess.

             It’s been a shock.  Physically, as well as emotionally.  It has thrown my Intuitive Eating on its head.  It was BEYOND unexpected.  Truthfully?  I am still a bit confused by the entire sudden ordeal.

             And, it’s my new normal.  I must heal.  I must rest.  I must mull over the changes taking place.

             For guidance, I’ve drawn this for us all.  And I’ll be transcribing both directions, they are valid.  As always, they are validating, too.

“Rescue  ~  16  ~

‘You are always safe and secure,

and free to be yourself!’

Upright

Asking for help isn’t easy for many successful people.  However, that’s what you need to do now as you expand your life.

If you find yourself troubled, you can expect help with whatever issue is at hand now.  You need only ask, and assistance will come your way.

The most important support you can count on is from Spirit.  Get into a right relationship with the Divine, and you will see that many conditions line up as if by magic to provide you with all the help you need.

Ask and you will receive.  There is no need to fear.  Safety is a place within.

Reversed

Are you trying to rescue another?  Do you believe that your live can change someone and miraculously heal this person? 

Or . . . . . are you waiting to be rescued?  Do you believe that someone will sweep you of your feet and take away all of your problems?

Reversed, the Rescue card cautions you against romanticizing your situation right now.  Look closely and see reality as it is rather than the illusion of how you’d like it to be.

You need to step back and rescue yourself.  Trust that the Spirit world will guide you to expose the illusion so that you may discern the difference between truth and fantasy.”

I am free to be myself.
