Exploration and Discovery

             We just arrived home from an exotic vacation.  Okay, not quite.  But we DID leave town!  And it WAS a great trip.  It simply wasn’t the one we thought we’d be taking.

             There are things we can plan for, and unforeseen situations we cannot.  Our get-away did not go exactly as we thought it would.

             And that brings us to what the Universe wants us to focus on, the current message.

Go where the road takes you.

             We begin this life with a blueprint, a Big Picture sort of idea.  What we are left to organize on our own, later, are the tiny details.  Add to this mix Free Will Choice, and we end up with the types of lives we actually participate in.

             Our Team, our loved ones, our own inner compass, all factor in to where we go, what we do, who we spend time with.  And, most importantly, how well we bounce back from those “unexpected” bumps in the road, the detours which take us to places we had no clue we’d be going.

             It’s a soul lesson, these re-routing maneuvers.  We learn from the way we handle it, how we feel, and whether we repeat the same sort of behaviour.  Our goal, obviously, is roll along with compassion and understanding.

             Each one of us know though, that’s not always how we react.  Are we doing better than the last time?  Sometimes yes, sometimes no.  Are we trying?  Alrighty then, that totally counts.

             It is definitely the Journey, and not the destination.

             Here’s a view from our drive home.  It was, as I said, not the trip we thought it would be.  But wow, it certainly was a very VERY good one.

Pacific ocean, mid November

             Somewhere below Astoria, but above Newport.  As the sun releases this day, I am energized and recharged.  Enjoy this, it was a gift to me, I’m sharing it with you.




For Reals.

             Just when I think I’m going to catch up, some global news happens.   And I feel obligated to share.   Well, not like I have to do it, but like I’d want others to tell me this type of thing.  Being informed is part of living a genuine life.

             At midnight tonight, the second it turns Sunday, there will be a sort of boycott.  Go HERE and read the story (and HERE is a newer update).  It’s being called Twitter Silence and I’m participating.    Because I can.

             When I woke up earlier, there was our message, and today’s Intention (Listen) practically at the same time.

Performance is not as important as intent.

             And on our card we received a wonderfully complimentary draw.

“Music for Manifesting.

To manifest rapidly, think of your desire while you chant, hum, sing, or play music.

Music is a powerful ally on your spiritual path, as it serves to boost your manifestation powers.  Music is part of the invisible realm, and is of a higher frequency than that of the physical plane.  It wraps us in a protective shield to guard us from negative energies.  It also lifts our emotions and thoughts to joyful levels.

By drawing this card, you are urged to play any type of music that suits your mood, as often as possible.  Move your body to the music  and breathe in deeply as you listen to it, drawing in the energy of each note.

Use music as a manifestation tool.  First, sit quietly and think of your desire.  Imagine that your dream has already come true, and feel that reality in your stomach as warmth, peace, excitement, or security   Feel gratitude in your heart.  

As you enjoy these feelings, being to chant, hum, or sing.  This self-made music sends your manifestation into the ethers, where it coagulates into tangible reality!”

             Tomorrow we have two items on our list: get some shit over to Emma’s new place, and later, pedal up to Washburne Park to hear Ally (xenatuba) and her Mrs play music.  Thanks, Universe, we can totally do this.
