Necessary

             What does it mean to be needed, and is it a way we wish to have others view us?  Don’t we all struggle to feel worthy and of value?

             Do we really HAVE to have all the things we cling to?  Are all of these gadgets and contraptions required for a truly happy existence?  Do we feel incomplete without the reassurance of others?

             This lifetime, for me, is all about Release and Letting Go lessons.  Yet, in the day-to-day, down-n-dirty, we-got-those-bills-to-pay reality, we’re maybe trying to go the other direction.  Might we be causing some of these issues?

            I mean, none of us is so unique that we can’t be replaced.  While at the same time, we truly ARE incredibly special, individual, the only one like us, with our own set of skills, talents, and gifts.

             It’s a balance, it’s a back-and-forth of trying to find that harmony of necessity.

             It’s:

equilibrium.

             We want to feel good about ourselves and what we’re accomplishing.  We just don’t want to worry that when we take a break everything will go to hell in a handbasket.

             How we find the tipping point is to fall off of the edge.  Uncomfortable?  Yes.  Fatal?  Usually not.  Informative?  Always.

             It’s up to us, one at time, in our own space, in our own way, with our own specialized set of tools, to discover that fine calculation, that perfect leveling.

             We need to seek it gently, though.  Without vigor, and without haste.  We need to approach it softly, so as not to flip the scales and cause a crash.

             In asking all of these questions, I was directed to see what else we could learn here.  This validation brings the start of an answer, a recalibrating of a reminder.

             To learn, we often times are forced to teach.  To instruct, we must first acknowledge that we are always still learning.

             To help ourselves, it is best to begin by helping others.

Transition and Renewal and Vegetation

             At two jobs.

             No days off.  For more than thirteen days straight.

             Like, in a row.

             Super tired.  Also?  Super pleased with this gift the Universe has handed to me.  Super glad to accept the challenge, and to enjoy the journey.

             All will settle soon.  Until then.  I leave you with this scene.

             My current view.

city palms and fir

             No, I did not move to PalmTree Land (although I’ve always wanted to, and possibly still might).  Here at my new place of employment, they have fabulous planter pots.  ENORMOUS planter pots.

             (If this does not make the trees happy, please don’t tell me.  Allow me my blissful ignorance.)

             Be Well,

             here’s what I am directed to share.

Affirmation:

I believe in myself,

I am strong and joyful,

I am healthy and filled with lovingkindness,

it is safe for me to move forward and follow my path.

Having a Day

              In my (self-appointed protective) poking around the internetz recently, I came across a brilliant young woman (no link to found, sorry).  She had an inspired suggestion:

Instead of telling you to have a nice day, I have another, perhaps better, idea.  Because, not all of us CAN have a nice day, not all of us are capable of that right now.  We maybe are only able to just get through the day.  I’m going to wish for you to have a day.  To survive it, so that you can, later (hopefully) sleep, and then get up tomorrow.  ‘Tomorrow’ is always a new opportunity.”

             That’s where I am, currently.  I’m just able to have a day.  I’m hoping for all of you that your day is good, but if it can’t be good, then at least have the day.  Tomorrow will be our next chance.

             In its usually validating way, here is the Universe chiming in.  More truth, if all we can do on this day is air-in/air-out, that’s still an accomplishment.

“Breathe  ~

Archangel Raphael:

‘Take several deep breaths, exhale slowly to awaken your energy and release old patterns.’

Additional Message:

‘Often during times of stress, you may unconsciously hold your breath.  Yet, as we know, breath is essential to oxygenating your mind, body, spirit, and very life.

Write a note to yourself to breathe, as a reminder of the importance of invigoration yourself with deep and steady breaths.’

Working with Archangel Raphael:

Raphael will give us Divine guidance (intuition, thoughts, ideas, dreams) about how we can participate in keeping our bodies healthy.

When you call upon this archangel for healing, pay special attention to inner impressions, and be sure to follow through upon guidance which calls you to take action.”

is a small note about Doreen.  Many folks in various spiritual communities have “broken up” with her lately.  She’s turned a new leaf in her life, and some people aren’t fans.

             For me, personally (now that I’m barely learning about Change lessons), I can see how it would be challenging to watch a teacher and leader going another direction, and in that sense, discrediting much of what we still believe to be true.   Of course, I can also understand how she needs to grow and absorb her lessons in her own way.

             For the purposes of this website, we are going to carry on as if she were no longer with us, and just allow her to move along in her journey.  We’ll continue to draw from her cards, guidebooks, pertinent sources, and accept that which serves us in the best and most positive way, as we’ve always done.

             There is still great validity in what she originally channeled, and vast amounts of her work is out there, being read and being shared.  It comes down to choice, and I choose to receive my messages from any and all avenues available, so long as they are found to be within the parameters of lovingkindness.

Winter Wishes

             I hope whatever holiday you celebrate(d) was/is filled with light and joy.

             I hope if you do not celebrate, that your days are comfortable and kind.

             I hope, for all of us, that 2018 is more positive, more loving, and all ’round better than the one we’re in now.

             I hope all of us remember that this chosen life of ours is a journey, not a race.

             I hope we all treasure every step, and the quiet pauses which fall between them.

             I hope each and every one of us go into tomorrow, and all the tomorrow’s following, with health, prosperity, and love.

             Be Well,

from me to you.

To Tend and To Manage

             For about 95% of my life, I was unaware of the Self-Care concept.  We are raised in this culture without it.  And that’s simply wrong.

             It’s true, everything DOES happen at just the correct moment, so I don’t lament the time I didn’t understand it.  I just now, go forward, and share the knowledge, the importance, with everyone who crosses my path.

             The process of being good to ourselves is vital, it is (should be, needs to be) part of our every day lives.

             Here’s what I heard:

start within.

             Because our beginning point, for all decisions and choices, must be ourselves, first.  As we are taken care of, so too, may we be good caretakers of others.

             Self-Care is crucial to our soul health, our mental health, and our physical health.  It’s importance cannot be understated.  What the Universe is reminding us right now is to put ourselves first.

             It is not selfish so practice Self-Care.  In fact, it’s the most generous action we can take.

             And speaking of honoring ourselves, our current card validates the spiritual aspect of this exact topic.
