Commonality and Participation

             In our long journey, amongst our many stops and stayovers, some lessons do find a way of returning.  We truly ARE trying to learn them, and let them go.  But, damn.  Often, they feel like barnacles that just won’t come off!

             For me, I’ve begun to understand the limits and restrictions.  I’m sure you have, as well.  Some of my personal challenges are computering and technology.

             Another, is dealing with family relationships, or on the random occasion, co-workers.  I struggle to not take pretty much EVERYthing personally.  (But that’s back to the Letting Go………)

             I make my valid attempts, I set aside my bias, I honestly do give all that I have.  And mostly, that is the best way.  Other times, I turn away in disappointment.

             It’s very much about our own Acceptance and Attitude, I have come to know that, at least.  Which, after a lifetime of rage, allowing that to fall away, is a nice gentle feeling.

             Our message, right now, is entirely in the card.  We can share, and then we can let those gifts drop wherever they are needed.  We do not need to worry about the results.  We live in a genuine way, how others receive that, is not our concern.

acceptance lessons

“Sharing of Yourself

‘I am an incredibly generous being.’

Share who you are with others.  Give what you have, what you do, and who you are.  Be generous.

The more freely and fully you share of yourself, the more freely and fully the Universe will give to you.

The Universe wants you to know:

you need to share from the depth of your soul.  Allow others to see your essence and feel your radiance. 

If you give with the thought that it’s something you must do as a duty or a sacrifice, you may feel depleted.

However, if you give with the belief that there is no scarcity of energy, or funds, or joy, the Universe will pour an abundance of these things into your life.

Don’t expect to receive something in return – rather, be generous just because it feels right.  

You can only give as much as your capacity to receive, so open yourself to receiving even more.

Questions to ask yourself:

how can I give even more?  What is stopping the flow within my life?  What could occur in my life if I gave without reservation?

Affirmation:

I am an incredibly generous person.”

Divine Positioning

             This afternoon I carved out a couple of hours to spend time in the company of a like-minded soul.  It was a mundane errand cloaked in joy.  We made our own fun.

             He and I know that we’ve wandered other lives together, wearing different bodies, but still the same spirits.  We are planning some more afternoons.

             What’s been in my head, even before today, humming loudly, is how we find each other.  How our paths cross at exactly the proper and correct moment.  At that point in both of our lives when we need each other the most.

             This is connected to last week’s message, because it’s still focused on Time, but now, it’s also about

the placement.

             That old cliche of being in the right place at the right time, or even, the wrong place at the wrong time, is not valid.  We are where we’ve PUT ourselves when we need to be in that place.

             Right place, or wrong place.  That’s a construct not known on the plane we all come from/return to.  Good time, bad time, same idea.

             Is the place or time benefiting to us both, to us all?  Then it’s good, even if, by some standards, it might seem bad.  The trick is to relax in to the plan we made before we put on these bodies; tune in to the blueprint, and allow ourselves to make these soul-connections, the remembered friendships we’ve treasured before.

             Another side of this same concept is about letting go of the old, no-longer useful burdens (even if some of them may be relationships).  And, turns out, here’s our validation.

Much Accomplished

             Ya know, we can’t help but laugh when the Universe hands us humour.  Or, in this case, irony.  (Yes, there is a difference, and I do know it.)

             It’s been a long and challenging past week for me.  (And for some you, as well.)  So this morning’s message totally caught me off-guard.  Then, I just had to smile.

Job Well Done

             If you follow Doreen on any of her locations, you’ll see that she’s been receiving similar information.  (As have numerous others.)

             But I didn’t know any of this until sitting down just now, because I could barely keep up with my own actual real life, let alone the social media presence one.

             Basically, we need to let any anxiety, guilt, or disappointment in ourselves go.  The past is behind us, let’s look at right now, with the Hope of a better tomorrow.

             We made it.  We accomplished so much more than we realized, simply did a much better job than we thought we did.  We survived, and yes, even thrived.  As we will continue to do.

             A little break and some compassion never killed anyone.  So let’s all take a deep breath, invest in a dose of Self-Care, and step away from any negativity.  Especially the self-induced sort.

             And when we look at who showed up on our card altar, we are able to see how very safe (and necessary) that exact recommendation is.

shielding

“Hippopotamus  ~

‘Friends stand close by to shield you from life’s adversities.’

Rotund, bountiful Hippopotamus counsels that you nourish those around you and be nourished in turn.

In a world of fast food eaten alone, the time has come to again break bread with friends and family as humankind has always done, and to take succour from confidences given and revealed.

Those intimates are eyes and ears looking out for us in a complex world and, like the red-lacquered coat of protective liquid which safeguards Hippopotamus from sunburn and dehydration, they shield us from the vicissitudes of life.”

Tonal Truth

             For me, sound (of all types) is  massively important.  All of the elements and senses are valuable, all hold equal weight.  Today though, we’re going to focus on hearing.

             Frequently I wake up with songs playing in my head.  Rarely do they have any sort of relationship with my actual life.  Generally, they are gifts from Elsewhere.  And I honour that.

             Which was why, when I realized what our message was, I just said “Thank You” and started taking notes.

Music

             The basic message is that, right now, drawing our attention to sound, melody, healing tones and tunes will be the first step in helping, no matter what situation we might need to work on.

             (And of course, if we don’t know, or don’t have a particular situation, then it will just help on general purposes.)

             The thing about music, and those sounds that touch our soul, is that it’s empowering and soothing, at the same time.  We know this, science tells us, and we feel it.  We can truly feel it.

             Also, there’s a deep and enriched connection that we get from music.  The pleasing harmonic essence, it reaches places inside of us that can be challenging or difficult to deal with.

             On our card altar, we’re being inspired to take this love song to ourselves one step further, to move with our music, and dance along our path.

empowerment crystal

“Snowflake Obsidian  ~

empowerment, protection, ideas, talents

You have so many wonderful inspirations, ideas, and talents that, to date, you have kept hidden, protecting and nurturing them within the fertile and loving landscape of your heart and imagination.

And rightly so, for the last few years have been like an incubation period, a time in which you have subconsciously been collecting creative fuel to be used at a later date.  Well, that time has now come!

You will soon begin to express and empower your ideas and inspirations as you discover practical applications for them in the physical world.

It is time for you to shine, so don’t hold back any longer.”

Accepting, Allowing

             No doubt you’re all familiar with the idea of being in one’s own way.  As in, we could be doing so much better, if only our own misgivings or doubts didn’t slow us down.  That sort of thing.

             The emotional toll of that feeling and attitude can be difficult to overcome.  And yet, that’s sort of what we’re doing here in this life, parading along in our adventures, climbing past obstacles and sweeping our paths clear.

             When I woke up this morning, this is what I heard:

step aside.

             It felt quite auspicious, this being my New Year’s Eve post and all, that we were being reminded to let our inner selves guide us.  To let our souls move forward while our brains take a break.

             This is a simple and wonderful way to face the next set of challenges and lessons.  By being honest and being open.  By stepping off when the stress and struggles feel overwhelming, allowing our internal compasses to lead the way.

             The other attitude this one presented was of heartfelt caring.  Like, that quiet, kind voice inside seems to KNOW we’ll be fine.

             Our validation is right here in this daily draw, still within the regular rotation, here’s the same illustration that I have (as a framed print) on my wall directly over the card altar.

            (Seriously, one of my all-time, favorite-in-the-entire-world images.  If you wanted to sum me up in art, this would do it.)

“Protection  ~

‘You, your loved ones, and your possessions are safe and protected by Heaven!”

Your prayers, which ask for safety and protection, have been heard and answered.  Any attacks or threats are now a thing of the past, washed away with the tide of Heavenly love.

This love is clearing away your insecurities so that you can feel totally protected and safe.

When you ask Heaven to watch over you, your home, your loved ones, and your possessions, your prayers are instantly answered.  There’s no hesitation or delay on Heaven’s part – it’s done as soon as you ask.

Your energies can now be directed in meaningful and creative ways, with your mind clear of worry.  Enjoy your day!”
