Staying on Track, and still saying

             The changes in my life recently have not been how I expected this chapter to unfold.  Because Life goes where it needs to go.  Taking us to the places we need to be.

             Never is it how we thought it would happen.  A turn here, a twist there, a detour we had NO fucking clue was up ahead.  We travel, we experience.  We follow the path, or we veer away from it.

             Right now all I keep hearing is how Acceptance and Appreciation must be in our line of sight at all times, it must be where we’re aiming.  We absolutely can’t make the progress which will help us the most if we don’t embrace those factors.

            The Universe says it’s about:

Recognition

             To acknowledge our blessings, our lessons, our challenges, that’s where we live in the moment.  That’s where we are ALIVE in a genuine and soulful way.

             To recognize our opportunities as well as those options we can just let pass us by, that’s vital.  Never worry that we’ll miss out.  We definitely won’t.  We’re always in the right place at the right time.

             In fact, on our card altar, this Special Occasion visitor reminds us why.

“Emu  ~  12  ~  Endurance

First in the Category of Fire

A solar influenced creature, Emu speaks of the responsibility afforded to fathers who find themselves raising their children singlehandedly.  Emu Dreaming lends itself to the teaching of effective parenting skills and the endurance that is required to execute the role, especially under difficult conditions.

. . . . . look at how you are holding up physically and emotionally to the stresses of life.  Perhaps you need to pace yourself better so that you are able to maintain a manageable level of endurance.

Emu promotes a holistic approach to life which incorporates a healthy mind/healthy body philosophy while encouraging you to seize personal quiet time for replenishment whenever you are able.

Emu demonstrates how to integrate the positive and supportive aspects of both our ‘yin’ and ‘yang’ characteristics by drawing their wisdom into everything we do, thus enriching our view of the world and our place (and that of our children) within it.”

Gratitude Attitude

             Around this time of year, there’s usually plenty of Being Thankful posts to be found.  This has definitely been on my mind, what with the holiday and all.

             But even more than that (because you all know how much I dislike being forced into a jovial or festive state), I have begun to gradually and oh-so-cautiously remove a few of my self-imposed restrictions.  I am peeking my head out, but only in safe directions.

             For me, right now, it’s become even more than merely the state of acknowledgment.  Our message echoes this, it has an intended focus of deep and sincere . . .

Appreciation 

             To be well-balanced, it is said that we must be an even mix of all the Tarot suits, all the elements, as well as equal portions give/take.  We must be able to receive, to accept, and to be able to understand the difference.

             Of course, in real life, none of us are perfect, or exactly well-balanced.  We struggle and we work through our challenges.  We work towards the understanding of gifting and welcoming.

             The trick is to notice and appreciate each level, each accomplishment, each individual we connect with.  THOSE are the true measures of success.

             Because, by feeling and honouring our simple gestures and tiny steps, we become more capable of even larger blessings, lessons, and gratitude.

             On our card altar, in validation of the same idea, this draw brings us a perfect affirmation.

“Joy  ~  24

Even just a simple smile can go a long way to spreading joy in our world. Choose to focus more on those things which bring you happiness and you will find you naturally begin to radiate this energy out into all of creation.

The more joy you send out, the more you’ll find you have to be joyful for – this is a law of the universe.

Affirmation:

By living with joy, I magically spread light into the hearts of my sisters and brothers everywhere.”
