Loads of signs and symbols lately about Moving Forward.  And while I’m not a fan of looking backwards (Release lessons, much?), I do understand the necessity for setting up a way to gauge, a method to measure with, an examination of sorts.

             Since I let go of all numbers, and no longer count calories, hours, steps, miles, nor any false form of calculating my body through artificial ciphers, seeing how we’ve improved on a non-physical plane seems like a positive way to proclaim our


             To be in the moment is our ideal, appreciating all that we have, all that we are surrounded by.  At the same time, it feels like we’d benefit from experiencing and acknowledging how far we’ve truly come, how far this journey has already taken us.

             We can briefly glance back over our shoulders, honouring the task, the trials, the challenges, while genuinely being Here Now.   We can appreciate the advancements and education, continuing to recognize and respect our tremendous achievements while taking the time to breathe, to Be, and to be Still.

             It’s a difficult balance, yes, but  it’s also a Self-Care gift.  We are allowing ourselves to take credit for how far we’ve come and how much we’ve learned.  We are accepting gratitude for making it all this way, and for not only surviving, but for thriving and flourishing so beautifully.

             Progress is not only our advancing, but it’s the recognizing that we did this, we made it, we traveled, we have become aware.  We are the success.  We are the strength.

             Additionally, we are part of the bigger picture.  We are connected.


“Devotion ~ Nature Spirits


inspiration ~ contemplation ~ nature ~ faith

The presence of the Universe is everywhere, so if you feel disconnected from the Divine, you are the one who left.  Your Nature Spirits are beckoning you back to a place of awareness which reconnects you to your source.

Do not allow your mind to isolate you in fear or get stuck in dwelling on misery.  Instead, go outside and take in the natural world – which is a beautiful gift for you to enjoy.

Focus on the beauty, power, and holiness that nature affirms.  Humbly surrender to this greatest force present in all things, including you.

Your Nature Spirits message is this:

Breathe in the Divine.

You are one with All.”

Today’s Personal Note:

is to say that I’m about ready to give this site a different, look.  If there’s anything here you might want to save, I’d advise printing those pages, because most of them will be going away.

             I know I said this months ago, but now it’s really going to happen.  All I’m waiting for is another perfect header photo, and the time to archive what I won’t be bringing with.

             It is safe to be happy, it is safe to change, it is safe to make progress.





All Available Alternatives

             While it’s true that we cannot turn back time (if Cher can’t do it, no one can), what we have been told/know to be true is that we’ve got options.  Many more choices than we may have originally perceived.

             Today’s message reminds us that:

it’s never too late.

             True, a chance may slip past, an opportunity come and go, but what the Universe wants to remind us is that another one is always available.  Always.

             There is no such thing as running out of time.  As we learned yesterday, a delay is really such a gift.  We don’t run out of time, and it’s never too late because time is not linear.

             And also, our lessons arrive exactly when they are supposed to.  There is an order to the chaos, and we are part of it.

             We have drawn up our charts, we have left room for free will, and we now simply get to participate in the journey of it all.

             As I was directed, we have returned to our regular rotation around the card altar so that this validation could be our stamp of success.

charge forward, it's never too late

“Progress  ~

Charge forward!

Be willing to make mistakes.”

             Because, as we know, there are no such things as “mistakes,” only lessons and gifts and alternative points of view.  All of the work we do shows on the “win” column.
