With Confidence

             While I definitely believe in the “if you don’t like it, change it” theory.  I also have to wear this body and live in the real world.

             There’s just been a wee bit too much REALITY in my life the past week.  Sometimes I find it difficult to manage.  I become overwhelmed with it all.

             This is where my being a person of great faith comes in quite handy.  I know, with all of my whole and entire self that where we are, on this planet, in this plane of education, is truly just a stopping-over point.  I know, with all that I am, that we will get to go Home (eventually).

             Here is where this one took me, here is the word that rang out the loudest:


             The Universe brings us reminders:  rainbows after a cleansing storm, babies after hard labor, presents we didn’t expect.

             The gifts are there, the messages being delivered, it’s our job to find them, to decipher them, to accept them, to receive them.  To be grateful for them.

             Often we struggle.  And that’s part of the process, too.  But in the end, we heal.  Sure, we sometimes go on to cycle around and have similar challenges.  That is another level of our lesson, spiraling ever upwards in our quest for Improvement.

             The WAY we learn, the WAY we manage, that’s key.  That’s where we are better able to see our path, to use our tools, and find the peace we seek.

             I was directed to this lovely validation.  When turmoil seems never-ending, we must remember that the solution will always arrive.

“I am at Peace

Divine peace and harmony surround me and dwell in me.

I feel tolerance, compassion, and love for all, myself included.”

             At our own discretion, obviously.  Some folks maybe don’t warrant any kindness, currently.  But, WE sure do!  (And I, personally, am entirely at Peace with my decision to grant compassion where I see fit.)

Hills and Valleys, Ins and Outs

             Some days are simply more challenging than others.  I hit a rough patch this week (several, actually).  The dates next week (and the ones right after) won’t help get me past that.

            What HAS been encouraging and uplifting, is my family. I truly hope that wherever you are, whoever you are, you have the kind of support I do.  If you do not?  Contact me, I’ll send you a virtual hug and we can chat.

             As I said in our last post, I’m very fortunate to have someone who picks me up when I stumble.  We also have three incredibly brilliant and kind (adult) children.  As a bonus, I have a mom and dad who adore me and are just up the highway.

             When we are struggling, as I have been lately, it’s helpful to go within, to see what messages our Team has for us.  As if in total validation, this card came up.  It is the entire message right now.

             Well, that and a reminder.  Focus on the haves, leave those have-nots for someone else to worry about.

is to thank Louise Hay.  She left us this week, passing peacefully in her sleep.  She was 90, and she was a gift to us all.





Navigational Tools

             (Seems like we have a theme developing…. I’ll just say that right off.)

             The signs we see (hear, smell, sense in every way) are direct messages, meant just for us, each with a singular purpose unto itself.  We are getting them constantly, but couldn’t possibly comprehend all of them on a daily basis.  We can, however, tune in so that the most important ones come through loud and clear.

             Those bits and pieces which are what we really need, will absolutely rise to the top.  They will show up in a clearly understandable manner when we give them a chance, when we pay attention.

             The Universe would like us to do just that, tune in and stay alert.

Notice Guidance

             We all know that the most obvious are repeating numbers, meaningful music showing up on (seemingly) occasions, feathers found, and coins crossing our paths.

             But there are more subtle ways that our Team and our loved ones on the Other Side drop hints and symbols.  There are rainbows and peculiar weather conditions, specifically colored sunsets/sunrises, formations of flowers or other physicality in nature, cloud shapes, as well as sparkling circles appearing on our photos, and words spelled out in unexpected places.

             It takes a lot of energy for these signs to appear and manifest in tangible ways, so it’s the least we can do to acknowledge and honour those who sent them.  Saying a simple “thank you” when we become aware is all they need to hear.

             Stop, breathe, take a quick quiet moment; be grateful, tell them how much you appreciate the effort, and then, remember to take that message to heart.  They aren’t sending them for no reason!

             On our card altar, we were handed a validation and a promise on exactly this topic.


“Brilliant Idea!

Archangel Uriel:

‘Yes, your idea is Divinely guided . . . please take action to bring your idea to fruition.’

Additional Message:

‘Your idea is an answered prayer.  Even though it may push you past your comfort zone, know that you are never given anything that you can’t handle.  Ask for, and be willing to receive, all of the support that you need to bring this idea to fruition.

Know that we will all be there, every step of the way, and you can ask me for help at any time.  I’m especially glad to give you ideas and creative insights to support your life’s purpose.’

Working with Archangel Uriel:

Uriel’s energy is pale yellow, like the glow of a candle.  Whenever you need ideas or intellectual guidance, contact Uriel.  His energy is aligned with the amber crystal.”

Today’s Affirmation:

is from Louise Hay.

I let go of all expectations.

I flow freely and lovingly with life.

I love myself.

I know that only good awaits me at every turn.


In Reserve

             Where do we turn?  Who do we call upon?  What is available for us when a need arises?

             These are some of the questions I woke up with this morning.  Then, I was made aware of the answer.


              Resources are like a savings account we didn’t know was there.  Something to draw on that never runs out.  We always, no matter what, have someplace/someone.

             We all have our own spiritual Team.  They are with us constantly, and need nothing more than a thought, plea, or cry for them to act.

             Many of us have a family of birth, and/or a tribe we have chosen.  There is community, neighborhood.  Whether on a global scale or within our own hand-selected group, we are not alone.

              All of these resources are there for us, and the list of resources is endless.  This was made evident for me in the past 24 hours.  When I was running smack-fucking-face-first into Mercury retrograde.  And, understandably, becoming frustrated beyond all reason.

              Keep reaching out.  That’s what I realized, that’s what our message is.  If the first resource isn’t able to help.  Keep asking.  Keep going.  Keep trying.  And then, try again.

             If we get creative with where we look, we have even more doors to knock on.  And that’s what my first calendar page of this year is reminding us.


             It’s about the feelings, and the needs, and the emotions.  It’s about genuinely being ourselves, our honest, flawed, and sacred selves.

             It’s also about how we are social creatures.  Even those of us who prefer never leaving the house or getting dressed.  We still do have that yearning to touch in, reach out, make contact.

            For creating, for connection, we have resources.  Plenty of them.

Thank you, Life!


Constructively Crafted

             It sometimes seems (to me, so maybe also to you) that The Universe harps an awful lot on living a genuine life.  Turns out, there’s a reason for that.

             We create our future by living in our current thoughts.  To be honest now will bring about exactly what we are seeking tomorrow.

Of our own making.

             The theory of aided Divine manifestation is that we all have free will.  In addition to our charts.  Combine those and we are able to craft a brilliant life.  All of it within the support of Source / Mr and Mrs God / Father Sky-Mother Earth / Named Deity Of Your Liking.

              But the trick is, we must release the negative, the suffering, and we must appreciate our present-ness.  The sacred space we occupy now will become our dream future.  As long as we stay real and stay true.

             To go with that message,  we have this.  A new view on positive thinking.  (The better to form positive future results with.)

"I am safe in the Universe, and ALL life loves and supports me."

“I am safe in the Universe,
and ALL life loves and supports me.”

“I breathe in the fullness and richness of Life.

I observe with joy as Life abundantly supports me and supplies me with more good than I can imagine.”

Power Thought Cards by Louise Hay

             With this quote:

“Affirmations are like planting seeds in the ground.  It can take some time to go from seed to full-grown plant, so it is with Statements of Power – it can take some time from the first declaration to the final demonstration.

So be patient.”

             And within that, what she is implying is that if we lose faith, we lose our forward momentum.
