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.

The Only Constant

             Ah, the journey.  The expedition which is Life.   We row our boats, we struggle against currents, we roll over the waves, we ride in shallow or deep water, we pull up to shore, taking on supplies.  Sometimes we even allow passengers.

             In the end though, the adventure is ours.  It’s how we feel, and how we deal.

             Also, it’s never the trip we think it’s going to be.  Right now, what I’m hearing most is, we won’t really understand this until we are past it.  But we need to BE in it while it is all happening.

             Here’s what the Universe wants us to be pay close attention to……

perfect timing, living the experience.

             As we all tread water, holding our own through this transitional time (on a personal, as well as global scale) we must truthfully embrace the movement.  Must not fight against the tide.  Honestly, it is a Universal Truth, we need to know (deep in our hearts) that we can never be led astray.

             THIS is our chosen path, so we have to walk it intentionally.  In as graceful and a loving manner as possible.  If there are rough patches, turbulent water?  Well, we accept those, stay in our boats, not letting the set-backs define us.

             Just as on our card altar, we are reminded of how spiritual notifications appear, precisely when and where we need them most.

enjoy the ride

“Notice the Signs  ~

‘Yes, the signs you’ve been receiving are heaven-sent.  We drop feathers, and other signs upon your path to remind you that you’re loved and never alone.’

The angels give you this card to help you understand the signs you have been receiving lately.

Additional meanings:

Your departed loved ones are saying, ‘hello!  I love you!’

Notice and believe in the repetitive signs you receive as validation that you’re on the right path.

Have faith.

Follow the signs that are guiding you to your heart’s desire.”

is to recommend you do some googling in the next week or so.  We’ve got a Mercury Retrograde coming up in early April.  Best to be aware.

       (I was directed to type that message in exactly those words, FYI.  Can’t wait to find out why!)


Recouping in the Affirmative

             What I heard this morning was clear and dramatic.  The images specific and detailed.  We are being asked to recall something from an earlier guidebook definition.  And apply it right now.

Accept what is.

             Of course this is not the same as being resigned to our fate.  Because our “fate” is actually the incredibly detailed plan that we worked on with our loved ones, the chart we plotted before arriving here, into these bodies/shells.

             What we are accepting is really our very own blueprint, that which will help us the most.

             When we “accept what is” we do so with open hands and hearts.  Trusting that we’re exactly where we need to be, learning precisely the lessons that will benefit us the most.  Should we continue to strive for lovingkindness?  Absolutely.  Should our goal be a mindful and caring passion?  Without a doubt.

             When we  “accept,” we honour our wisdom.  And that of those we’ve chosen to walk alongside in this lifetime.  On our card altar, back within the regular rotation, we’ve been shown another, and very beautiful, aspect of this same idea.

“The Rainbow Prince  ~  26  ~

compensation, perseverance

When the Rainbow Prince appears as your Ally, he reminds you about the Law of Compensation and the Law of Receiving.   After the rainstorm you’ve endured on your journey, the Rainbow Prince brings you a pot of gold, which is the result of your using all the elements of your inner Light and reaching into the sky until  you touch the material realm from one end to the other.  

This isn’t always an easy process, and hard work must be rewarded by compensation.   When you align yourself with the energy of giving the highest value, your compensation is inherent in the act itself.

But the message here is more than that:

the Rainbow Prince says to keep your sights on the sky after the rainstorms that may have upset your life.  Follow your bliss to the pot of gold waiting for you.

Perseverance pays off, and your reward will be greater than you can imagine.”

Wisdom Of The Hidden Realm Oracle Cards by Colette Baron-Reid

is in reply.  My exceptionally beautiful, most recent quiche sparked another round of recipe requests.  I’ve shared this here before, more than once.  But it’s understandable that it might be forgotten.

             Because it’s not really a specific set of ingredients nor instructions.  It was at one time (more than 25 years ago), but now this dish is simply a what-I-have-on-hand sort of toss-together, budget-pleasing, general suggestion.

             I make the rice crust* by using about (about!) a cup of cooked rice, any kind.  Cooled.  Mix in an egg or two (whatever), and some seasoning.  I like Kale Sprinkles right now, but I’ve also used paprika, parsley, garlic, seasoning salt.  Stir well.

*Or use any type of crust you want, even none at all.

             Smash the mixture into a greased pie plate (mine is very deep and antique, no clue how it compares to more modern equipment).  Push with a large spoon or spatula so that the bottom is flat and it is coming up the sides, just like a regular pie crust would be.  (If you have any basil, you could press some across the surface at this stage.)

             In that same bowl you used for combining your rice and eggs (don’t bother washing it), toss in spinach, or whatever greenery you have around.  This originally called for a box of frozen chopped, defrosted and drained, but not cooked.

             Add eggs.  If you have lots, us lots.  If you have only a few, then add cream (or milk or unflavored  yogurt or cottage cheese) to stretch the liquids.

             Now, look around.  What else do you have?  Got cheese?  Grate a bunch* and throw that in.  Bacon handy and no vegetarians in your house?  Crumble and add a handful.  Sun-dried tomatoes?  Also good.

*We ended up with some pre- shredded Fiesta Blend, this last time, but have used all varieties and types and ages.

             Salt and pepper.  Mix thoroughly.  Breaking up the spinach if needed.  Pour over your crust.  Place dish on a baking sheet, it might overflow, or it may not, but be safe.  Cook for at least an hour.  Then, if it’s really pretty, take a picture.
