How Dynamic We Are

             As you may know, I have a “day” job.  One of my tasks, pretty much on an hourly basis (if not more often), is giving my opinion.

             Travelers ask what I think.  They ask about the campus.  They ask about local sights and events.  They ask me, and this is the number one question, where I think they should eat dinner.

             I have two quick answers.  Because: distance from our hotel, and quality.  Generally the people asking me this question have high expectations.

             I don’t let them down.  I deliver.  And that’s because these two restaurants, which I always recommend, never let ME down.

             Our message today has to do with tuning in to, and following along with, those instincts we’re all born with.  It’s about being ourselves, our sacred selves.

             The Universe would like to remind us that we are powerful beings.  We have strength.  We have compassion.  We have an inner knowing.  We have

 Spiritual Fortitude

             To honour the fact that we all come from Source, and will return back to Source, we need to remember our Divine Value.  When I make those recommendations, I am confident. I know the food and service will be remarkable, in a good and healing way.  The experience with be positive.

             In other aspects of my life?  I falter.  I fall down.  I waver.  I fail.  I am flawed.  But in the areas where I know?  I stand strong.  I am bold.

             This encourages me.  It helps me to help those who ask for my assistance, or my guidance.  Or, my recommendations.

             The perfect validation has appeared on our (still incomplete) card altar.  Sadly, the guidebook went missing in this move.  So, I’m going to take my own advice and type out what comes through me, with confidence and strength of knowing.

“Life Review

Archangel Jeremiel:

‘Take inventory of your life, and resolve to change or heal anything that is unbalanced.’ “

             It can be simple.  We make it more complicated.  Where there is negativity, remove it.  Where there is unhappiness, let the sorrow go.  Where we find ourselves uncomfortable, move on.

             It might be a VERY difficult choice.  But when we look back, do we WANT to say we spent all of that time suffering?  Or do we want to enjoy all the moments that we can?

is to say that I know you’re curious.  Here are the two restaurants,

Cafe Soriah and Davis.  Both names, clickable links to their websites.

             Last night, I was treated to a gorgeous meal at Soriah, made (specifically for me!) by the owner and executive chef himself.  It was so amazing, I cried.  He was beyond kind and generous; the food and service  were extraordinary.

Ready and Rockin’

             Once more, we are being asked to gaze about for signs of how we can serve.  To look within and without, finding those who (including ourselves) may need a helping hand.

             Our assistance is required at this time, said the Universe to me this morning.  (And seriously, who the hell am I to argue?  Remember, I’m just the radio here.)

Communal Support

             When we are open, and receptive, that’s when our lessons are the easiest.  That’s when they are more like blessings in our perception.  It’s also when we hear and see the most.

             Today, the scenes I was shown were not so much about a struggle, as they were emotionally deep.  Our community needs us to be whole, WE need us to be whole.

            How are we to help others, support our tribe, if we are not hearty and hale?  Mentally, as well as physically.  In order to be our most useful selves, we must be our BEST selves.  First.

             Which is pretty much exactly what the daily draw message is saying.  I was directed to leave our regular rotation earlier, and this is where we landed.

“Life Review  ~

Archangel Jeremiel:

‘Take inventory of your life, and resolve to change or heal anything that is unbalanced.’

Additional Messages:

‘It takes courage to look at your own life.  Yet, if done with compassion and a sense of humor, you’ll grow and learn from a life review.  I’ll help you take stock of where you’ve been.

We’ll look at what you’ve learned, and how these lessons are a valuable asset for today and tomorrow.  We’ll also notice life patterns that aren’t serving your higher good, and we’ll take steps to release those patterns.’

Working with Archangel Jeremiel:

One of Jeremiel’s purposes is to help newly crossed-over souls review their lives.  He also helps those who are still living to make life reviews.  Take time soon to be alone, and ask Jeremiel to help you review where you’ve been, what you’ve learned, and what you’re grateful for in your life.”

is this view of what’s on my desk and in my ears right now.  (Well, not RIGHT now, I can’t write with music [or ANY noise] within my range of hearing.)

Paul Simon Negotiations and Love Songs 1971-1986

Paul Simon
Negotiations and Love Songs 1971-1986

             Borrowed from my awesome and amazing pool pal, Patty.  We’re going to add a few of these gems to our class playlist.

             Wanna learn something about me, that not many folks know?  My favorite song, on the entire planet, is number 5 on this disc.  (Oh, ha….. it’s number FIVE!)

             (My second fave, is a tie: Walking In Memphis by Cher, and Amazing Grace.)

Gifts and Presents all along our Journey.

             Tonight we had guests.  For dinner.  Don’t worry though, nothing got cleaned.  No preparation was made.  It was just my mom and dad.  So the word “casual” might be an understatement.

             There is too much Mexican mac & cheese here, so we shared.  And she brought me a card.  Because when she saw it; the illustration seemed like everything I love.  Look at it, she was right!

sea scenes, serenity, lighthouse view

Isn’t that beautiful?

             Also, they delivered our anniversary greetings early, in case we don’t see them before Wednesday.  (Crap, are we really that close to another year already?)

             It was a lovely afternoon, as it always is with my ridiculous parents.  No, I did not get any photos, we were so busy it never occurred to me.  They have no interwebs (and no computer) so much of today was catching them up on photos and on-line info that they can’t get at home.

             One of the topics my mother and I discussed was the power of prayer.  She never feels short-changed or cheated by life, because her attitude is one of Grace.  (It’s also one of very bad language and crabbiness, but mostly, ya know, Grace.)

             We talked about lovingkindness and how any time we send Love out in to the world, even if that’s all we can do in a situation, it helps.  We both know this.  And want to make sure others know it, too.

             The message I woke up with earlier was basically a reminder from yesterday, with that “send Love” notation added on like an attachment file or Post It Note.

Our interpretation of the reality surrounding time is merely our current perception;

make the best of every single moment.

             Whether we are at a stage in our journey where we can understand the concept of “everything happens when it’s supposed to” or not, we can at least accept this.

             Our daily draw is, again, away from the regular rotation.  When I am directed to a particular stack I never question it.  And this one seems like it really wants to help.

             Even though this suggestion seems like it might be VERY difficult,  it also feels VERY worthwhile.  I’m going to try it out, as soon as I’m done typing.
