Journeying

             I’m on the mend, thank you all so much.  The “day” job continues to be a struggle.  My head is still congested, my voice is still compromised, and the cough is lingering; this heat is doing me no favours.

             Starting Sunday (tomorrow) it will be a long stretch of no days off, and truthfully I am dreading it in a big way.  My mantra has been fridayfridayfridayfridayfriday so I can focus my mind on the end of it, instead of on how shitty it feels to begin a schedule like this.

             And, not so ironically, the Universe is right there with me.  Coaching and encouraging.  Here’s what I’m hearing:

Endurance

             This entire life adventure is about the doing of it, the going, the moving forward.  It’s never about the end.  Our goal is to survive.  To thrive, and to learn.  To constantly do better.

             In order for us to accomplish this, we have to get THROUGH it first.  And that’s where my aim is now.  Getting through this week.  And making it to the next day off.

              I absolutely do understand that I have to be there for some reason.  Even if I don’t know the reason, there is one.  Possibly, it’s many reasons.  Maybe, it might even be more about the process.

             As soon as I figure it out, I’ll be sure to share.

             In complete validation, here is where our message continues to take us.

Transformation  ~  38

You are in the midst of a profound transformation.  You are on a path of rapid growth and change – 

you have been for some time.

The inner work you have completed is about to pay off.  You have acquired so much knowledge and experience and are now ready to let go of an ‘old’ aspect of yourself, rebirthing into a ‘new’ you.

Do not be afraid, embrace this transformation and rejoice in it.

Affirmation:

I welcome this personal transformation with open arms and an open heart.”

Today’s Sharing:

is to say, yes….. transformation, indeed!  On Tuesday I cut off all my hair again.  This will make the third donation process I’ve been through in the last decade.

             No, we don’t have any (good) photos right now, but some will appear (eventually).  Envision going from extremely long braids to very short curls and you have the idea.

            Additionally, there will be a new face to the website soon.  Not sure what it will look like, yet.  But it’ll all still be here.  Just a new view on the front.  I didn’t want anyone to be shocked, or unprepared.

             Might take me a few weeks, merely informing everyone that the transformations are continuing.

Transitioning Process

             Even before that Tower look-alike arrived, we’d been dealing with Change.  So today’s message wasn’t a tremendous surprise to me.

             (The way it was presented took a bit of figuring out, though.  Ah, the joys of being a dyslexic channel.)

Same, same.

Different, different.

Same/Different.

             It’s like this.  We go along, go along, go along, then . . . . CHANGE!  Or, we deal with chaos, deal with chaos, deal with chaos, then . . . . n. o. t. h. i. n. g.

             Very much like when the energy of an explosion billows and lifts bits and pieces at the very edges of its impact zone, we are feeling the ripple effect, the hot waves of a blast, from a major upheaval.

             (Which was exactly the image I was given, hence my difficulty in wrangling the entire narrative into place.)

             It happens, we get used to a regular routine, our own version of “normal” (even when it’s anything but).  The Universe did not say we are becoming complacent, but the general feeling was there.

             Either way, we need to remember that our journey is about the movement of travel, the adventure we are living right at this moment, not what came before and not what’s coming up next.  Mindfulness, that’s still our most valuable tool.

             Ya know, in amongst all the changing and shifting and healing and learning.

             But also, back around the card altar, where we’ve returned to our regular rotation, this draw is a validation.  Showing us that, as we do the work, the rewards are many.

             When we come across this path, without the challenge, we need only walk the length of it and place what we want upon the column.  It becomes ours.  When it’s in this direction, we have a bit more to do.

             Is it about the changes we’re experiencing?  The growth we’re going through?  Absolutely.  No doubt.

             We can still expect a nice payment, but we can’t take for granted the fact that when we put in the hours, when we do the time, we earn our treasure.

             That, however, can be a very good thing.  We know exactly what it took to get this far.  Because we walked every single damn step.
