Authentic Freedom

             As we travel, experiencing our journey, living our lives, we are learning our lessons and gaining knowledge.  (At least, that’s the hope.)

             In this process, we grow, we evolve, and in many ways, we change.  (Again, that’s how it’s “supposed” to work.)

             What I was directed to share right now has to do with that growth and change.  For me, it’s about Release, but there are also factors that deal with moving away from judgment, becoming more independent, and keeping ourselves:

open.

             When we remember the Universal Law of Free Will we are better able to understand the choices and decisions of others.  Their selections and paths are theirs, ours belong to only us.

             When we come across someone who is headed in a way we don’t necessarily agree with, we can’t just shout “stop this, you’re being a fucking idiot!” even though, perhaps we might feel that this would be most helpful.

             We must keep our hearts, and minds, and souls open.  We have to honour those off-ramps which others take when exiting the highway of life.  It wasn’t OUR turn to make, it may not even have been the best one for them.  But, we don’t know where they’re going.  (Hell, I hardly even know where I’m going.)

             Open-ness, freedom.  The key in this particular message is to allow whatever needs to happen, happen.  For them.  And for us.

             With validation, we have landed here.  One of the best ways to step away from the troubles when dealing with everyone else is to go within.

Hills and Valleys, Ins and Outs

             Some days are simply more challenging than others.  I hit a rough patch this week (several, actually).  The dates next week (and the ones right after) won’t help get me past that.

            What HAS been encouraging and uplifting, is my family. I truly hope that wherever you are, whoever you are, you have the kind of support I do.  If you do not?  Contact me, I’ll send you a virtual hug and we can chat.

             As I said in our last post, I’m very fortunate to have someone who picks me up when I stumble.  We also have three incredibly brilliant and kind (adult) children.  As a bonus, I have a mom and dad who adore me and are just up the highway.

             When we are struggling, as I have been lately, it’s helpful to go within, to see what messages our Team has for us.  As if in total validation, this card came up.  It is the entire message right now.

             Well, that and a reminder.  Focus on the haves, leave those have-nots for someone else to worry about.

Love and Light, Strength and Self-Care

             Certain current events have driven me from all media, social and traditional.  (Driven me nearly into a breakdown, if I’m to be honest here.  And you all KNOW that I am nothing if not honest.)

             I’m surrounding myself with loved ones, caring friends, new co-workers who are already becoming a natural and endearing part of my life.  I’m being safe, in the only way I know how.

             One of those ways is to not discuss topics which are too painful to mention.  I’m going to work, I’m reading good escapism fiction, I’m planing projects in my sewing room, and I’m sketching out the beginnings of my new oracle card decks.

             If you’re having trouble, too, I recommend similar methods.  I believe that, right now, Self-Care is more important than ever.  Support, in whichever way works for you, this is key.

Be the light.

             We can make changes, but only if we’re strong enough.  I am not currently able to do much more than stay upright and vertical.  But that’s okay.  I know my limits and I’m using what tools I have assembled to keep me from drowning.

             Please, do the same.  Take care of yourselves, deal with only as much as you feel you can manage, and by all means, call in any favors you may have outstanding.  If now is not the time to help, I can’t imagine when it would be!

             And since I don’t question the Universe (although, I really fucking want to!), I’m not asking why this draw appeared on our card altar.  It just did, so we’ll learn from it.  As we will with everything else.

Opportunities For Discernment

             We’ve all known people who acted in a way we didn’t adore.  Maybe they spent their money on things we wouldn’t have purchased.  Or perhaps they behaved in a manner we felt was not making good decisions.

             It’s frustrating.  It can even be upsetting.  But, it’s also human nature.

             Sure, it might sometimes be cultural, and now we’ve all learned better.  What was once perfectly acceptable is now no longer considered a passable alternative.  We can transform that opportunity into a teaching moment, if appropriate for the situation.

             Today’s message is for us to focus on this idea of power in selection.  The thought that, we can choose any and all options, and so can everyone else.  Because, we all have

Free Will

             We all have choices.  We are all able to cast our votes, disperse our earnings, select our groceries, wear our clothing in the way that we see fit, in the way that suits us the best.  As is everyone.

             The truth is, our spiritual Free Will guarantees that we can all worship, pray, meditate, study, or do nothing, any way that makes sense to us.

             It is not up to our neighbor, our parents, our bosses, our children, our partners, nor a stranger on the street, to tell us what to do.  And yet, it does happen sometimes.

             Exercising our Free Will, we may ignore them, if we like.  We don’t have to listen.  And, it’s good to remember, no one has to listen to us.

             All anyone really has to do is be true to her or his own beliefs, own heart, and our very own genuine self.

             When we see the beauty and truth in this simple Universal Law, we also see joy, and happy results.  Just like on our card altar right now.  What a terrific validation.

“Problem Resolved

Card Meaning:

‘An issue that’s been bothering you is being healed behind the scenes.  The solution is creative, ingenious, and is a joyous surprise for you.’

You are on the cusp of experiencing welcome relief from a problem that’s been bothering you.  The fairies want you to know that you have reason to smile, as the Universe is working on a solution which is so creative you’ll chuckle with delight.  Basically, it’s win-win for everyone.

You’ll soon be receiving good news . . . . .

Please don’t strain to figure out ‘how’ this solution will be achieved, or in what form it will manifest.  Instead, let yourself enjoy feelings of excitement and gratitude as you allow heaven to help you.

Affirmation:

I ask that all negative effects of mistakes and misunderstandings be undone, both in the past and present.”

Overhead / Overheard

             Everyone who receives messages from “somewhere else” gets them differently.  Because everyone is an individual, and we all perceive in our own unique ways, bringing our own singular history (and interpretation) to the channeling.

             Some days, for me, it’s images and views and scenes.  Other times I’m hearing stories.  Also, there’s the feelings and sensations and emotions.

             I never know what I’m going to wake up with.  Like today, it was sort of similar to those word-clouds people use for blogs and websites, big clumps of high-volume phrases.

              So, as I don’t believe I’m qualified to question any of it, I’ll just deliver to you exactly what was delivered to me:

  • look up
  • observe fully
  • be aware
  • watch for signs
  • see the sky

             Take from it what you will.  In my case, I think I’ll be gazing upwards, and watching for what there is to see.  And then, being grateful for whatever appears.

             Which is precisely, it seems, what the Universe is directing us to do, as is evidenced here on our card altar.  (How delightfully that worked out!  I love when that happens.)

“Trust Your Intuition  ~

‘It is safe for you to follow your heart’s guidance.  You know, deep down, what to do.  This card asks you to trust and follow this inner intelligence.’

Has your inner guidance been trying to get your attention lately?  Perhaps a gut feeling is tugging at you like a seeing-eye dog, an inner voice has been screaming at you, or you have had dreams charged with profound emotions and symbolism lately.

By drawing this card, you’re being urged to pay careful attention to these various forms of intuition.  Now is not the time to ignore these messages or procrastinate.  

Trust this inner wisdom, just as you would if it came from a respected teacher.  Know that you aren’t imagining the guidance.

It’s powerful and repetitive voice is a sign that you are truly getting clear and trustworthy messages that are worth following.

Affirmation:

I trust and follow my feelings and thoughts without question or delay.”
