Advancement

             Loads of signs and symbols lately about Moving Forward.  And while I’m not a fan of looking backwards (Release lessons, much?), I do understand the necessity for setting up a way to gauge, a method to measure with, an examination of sorts.

             Since I let go of all numbers, and no longer count calories, hours, steps, miles, nor any false form of calculating my body through artificial ciphers, seeing how we’ve improved on a non-physical plane seems like a positive way to proclaim our

Progress.

             To be in the moment is our ideal, appreciating all that we have, all that we are surrounded by.  At the same time, it feels like we’d benefit from experiencing and acknowledging how far we’ve truly come, how far this journey has already taken us.

             We can briefly glance back over our shoulders, honouring the task, the trials, the challenges, while genuinely being Here Now.   We can appreciate the advancements and education, continuing to recognize and respect our tremendous achievements while taking the time to breathe, to Be, and to be Still.

             It’s a difficult balance, yes, but  it’s also a Self-Care gift.  We are allowing ourselves to take credit for how far we’ve come and how much we’ve learned.  We are accepting gratitude for making it all this way, and for not only surviving, but for thriving and flourishing so beautifully.

             Progress is not only our advancing, but it’s the recognizing that we did this, we made it, we traveled, we have become aware.  We are the success.  We are the strength.

             Additionally, we are part of the bigger picture.  We are connected.

“Devotion ~ Nature Spirits

44

inspiration ~ contemplation ~ nature ~ faith

The presence of the Universe is everywhere, so if you feel disconnected from the Divine, you are the one who left.  Your Nature Spirits are beckoning you back to a place of awareness which reconnects you to your source.

Do not allow your mind to isolate you in fear or get stuck in dwelling on misery.  Instead, go outside and take in the natural world – which is a beautiful gift for you to enjoy.

Focus on the beauty, power, and holiness that nature affirms.  Humbly surrender to this greatest force present in all things, including you.

Your Nature Spirits message is this:

Breathe in the Divine.

You are one with All.”

Today’s Personal Note:

is to say that I’m about ready to give this site a different, look.  If there’s anything here you might want to save, I’d advise printing those pages, because most of them will be going away.

             I know I said this months ago, but now it’s really going to happen.  All I’m waiting for is another perfect header photo, and the time to archive what I won’t be bringing with.

             It is safe to be happy, it is safe to change, it is safe to make progress.

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.

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.”

More than Mere Management

             Have you ever had a dream involving problems with your teeth?  Most of us have.  It’s not that uncommon.  What we need to understand, though, is where these thoughts and images come from.

             Dreams such as this (or more often, nightmares), are almost always fear-based.  They are never prophetic, nor are they visitations.

             But, they are important to examine and heed; they are, without fail, messages.  Here’s what I was shown, and directed to share:

Control vs Care

             Representations of broken or damaged teeth tell us that our subconscious ( our ego, more times than not ) is concerned about losing control (lose control/loose teeth/loss).  The feeling of not being able to “get a grip” (or a bite) on our life or current circumstances is the symbolism.

             In truth, we aren’t ever in control.  Yes, we absolutely have free will, and we absolutely are able to make choices and decisions.  That’s where the Care part comes in.

             We need to honestly have a passion, honestly need to feel our lives, our journey, our day-to-day.  It’s so necessary for us to have real emotions, and yet, not be hung up on thinking we are “in control” – we can Care, but don’t need to be grasping so tightly that we “lose” our Joy in all the worry over Control, who has it, who doesn’t.

             Another aspect of this particular message comes up on our card altar.  When I first went to where I was being called and this one showed up, I thought it was a repeat, thought it was one we must have just drawn.

             This all crossed my mind, because, it was, in a way.  HERE is why……. funny, I never noticed, in all these years, all these readings, that the images, even from two different authours, are the same/similar.

“Courage  ~

Archangel Ariel:

‘Be courageous, and stand up for your beliefs.’

Additional Message:

‘In this situation, you need to act upon your convictions, even if others disagree.

I’m protecting you from harm, and guiding you to be a loving warrior of light.  As you stand up for your beliefs, you are a role model for others.

This is an important form of spiritual teaching, in which your example gives others courage to also stand up for their own principles.’

Working with Archangel Ariel:

. . . If you notice images of lions or lionesses, this signals that Ariel is with you.  Call upon her to boost your confidence and courage.”

is to say that we had a lovely outing earlier.   THIS is a resource our community is hugely proud of.  If you’re ever here for a visit, be sure to stop by, and if you’re local, go (again) soon!  (There’s a video, and yes, it actually looked exactly like that this afternoon, not even kidding.)
