Our Un-Tidiness

             We’ve definitely spoken before about how our adventure here sometimes leads us down roads and paths we never anticipated traveling.  Well.  I went there this week.  Literally, and figuratively.

             A bit of (formerly mysterious) health situation has now been clearly diagnosed.  And treated (if that’s the right term for: excising).  I’ve had my gallbladder removed, emergency-surgery style.

             What do we learn from shit like this?  Not to take ANYthing for granted, sure.  Not to let a day go by without saying nice words to loved ones, certainly.

             But, also:

life is messy!

             We wear messy bodies, making our messy little journeys, as we experience (and hopefully savor) messy existences.

             Nothing is tidy, nothing is sure, nothing is static.  We, daily, waver and change.  We grow and we have set-backs.  Most of all, we have our lives.   And they, unquestionably, can be a bit of a mess.

             It’s been a shock.  Physically, as well as emotionally.  It has thrown my Intuitive Eating on its head.  It was BEYOND unexpected.  Truthfully?  I am still a bit confused by the entire sudden ordeal.

             And, it’s my new normal.  I must heal.  I must rest.  I must mull over the changes taking place.

             For guidance, I’ve drawn this for us all.  And I’ll be transcribing both directions, they are valid.  As always, they are validating, too.

“Rescue  ~  16  ~

‘You are always safe and secure,

and free to be yourself!’


Asking for help isn’t easy for many successful people.  However, that’s what you need to do now as you expand your life.

If you find yourself troubled, you can expect help with whatever issue is at hand now.  You need only ask, and assistance will come your way.

The most important support you can count on is from Spirit.  Get into a right relationship with the Divine, and you will see that many conditions line up as if by magic to provide you with all the help you need.

Ask and you will receive.  There is no need to fear.  Safety is a place within.


Are you trying to rescue another?  Do you believe that your live can change someone and miraculously heal this person? 

Or . . . . . are you waiting to be rescued?  Do you believe that someone will sweep you of your feet and take away all of your problems?

Reversed, the Rescue card cautions you against romanticizing your situation right now.  Look closely and see reality as it is rather than the illusion of how you’d like it to be.

You need to step back and rescue yourself.  Trust that the Spirit world will guide you to expose the illusion so that you may discern the difference between truth and fantasy.”

Today’s Affirmation:

( it’s worth repeating )

Safety is a place within me.

I am always safe, secure, protected.

I am free to be myself.






Road Report: cinq

             One of the methods with which we can grow and advance, is to be a participating member of our community, family, tribe.  And the best part about this, is that we can all fashion our own way to suit our own individual journey.

Teaching and Learning

Giving and Sharing

             By asking the most important question, ‘how may I serve?’ we’re then truly listening for our answer, making us better able to step forward and elevate our path.

             I know, sometimes the Low Road is exactly where we need to be in order to get the grittiest work done.  But, that’s a place we can always hop down to, then jump back up off of.

             Here, thanks to our new addition, is an inspiring idea about how to keep us on track.

“Devotion  ~  44  ~  Nature Spirits

Inspiration, Contemplation, Nature, Faith

The presence of (Mr and Mrs) God is (are) 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 that reconnects you to your source.  Do not allow your mind to isolate you in fear or get stuck dwelling on misery.

Instead, go outside and take in the natural world – which is a beautiful gift for you to enjoy.  See the Divine all around you.  Focus on the beauty, power, and holiness that nature affirms.

Humbly surrender to this greatness of forces present in all things, including you.  Your Nature Spirits’ message:

breathe in the Divine.  You are Source, and Source is you.”

Travel Notes:

will simply be the reporting of a phenomenal Nature Spirit sighting.  One delightful hummingbird showed up this afternoon, as a reminder.  And we are thankful.

             Also, we went to a ballgame HERE.  It was gorgeous.
