Educated Observations

             For days now, this message has been bouncing around in my head.  It has refused to take shape.  The edges staying blurred as I struggle with my own personal “things” versus letting go and opening up to receiving what we all need to hear.

             Partly it’s been challenging for me because the signs of winter ending are simply not welcome.  I require a much colder forecast than what’s been my reality.

            The truth though, is that weather makes a perfect metaphor for where we’re headed.  Wait a few minutes, and it’ll change.

             We are being guided in:

Acceptance Lessons

             A strong wind will blow away.  A frost will melt.  A heat wave wilts, to be replaced by a refreshing breeze.  Rain does dry, and even droughts are eventually washed into green again.

             So, too, are we moving through our journey.  Our learning changes on every level.  We begin with simple tasks, and move (hopefully) in to more complicated lessons.

             That’s our soul’s evolution.  That’s what we’re here for.  That’s the actual goal.

             When we get bogged down with the mundane, the physical, the difficulties, we forget to look at how much progress we’ve made.  We forget to notice the beauty in a tranquil sunset, or the glory that is a glitteringly gorgeous frost.

             The most basic concept, the most simple idea, that of being in the moment, appreciating the gift in front of us, is what the Universe would like us to hold lovingly close, and to take forward as we walk our path, in all types of weather, on all sorts of roads.

           And in validation, here are the two most perfect cards as illustration.

“3 of Water: Emotions


You are becoming more and more available and open to the many opportunities that there are to celebrate in life, and to share this with others.

Let your hair down, take your shoes off, and start splashing in the puddles right now!  The party is happening all around you every moment.

10 of Rainbows: The Physical

We Are The World

This view, humanity being depicted as a rainbow of dancing beings, represents a time of communication, of sharing the riches that each of us bring to the whole, it shows us joined together in joy and gratitude.

When we recognize the common source of our humanity, the common origins of our dreams and longings, our hopes and fears, we are able to see that we are all joined together in the great miracle of existence.

When we can combine our tremendous inner wealth to create treasures of love and wisdom that is available to all, we are linked together in the exquisite patterns of eternal creation.”

From Me to You:

             These are the reasons I still have hope.  These are the messages which pull me out of my depression.  These are the signs I find inspiration in.  And to share them, that is what brings me joy.






Motion and Movement.

             You know how you have something all set in your mind, the idea all fleshed out, ready to roll and make sense?   Right.  I had that.  Earlier.  Then it changed.  And some of it no longer felt correct.

             Also, I have developed a strange and new discomfort; potentially bursitis again.  But not in my shoulder this time.  It’s EXCEEDINGLY painful.  So I’m having trouble concentrating.

             On the plus side, acupuncture seems to (slightly) help edema.  Which is a nice change.  Oh sure, my feet and ankles are still swollen, but not as badly as they were before.

             When I got up today I actually SAW the message.  Remember that We Are The World card?  Yep, that’s the image I was shown.  With these words:

open your arms wide,

and prepare to receive;

accept what gifts appear.

             It was really cool, and helped to get my afternoon going with a positive attitude (before it took a nose dove and went the other way).  In our card altar room I was then directed to leave the rotation.

“New Location  ~

A change of venue is coming your way.  Most likely, you are moving to a new residence.  However, this card could also mean that you are changing the location of your employment.

The fairies are very much in touch with geographical changes.  They sense that your energy is drawing you to a new location.  Perhaps you have been thinking about moving to a new home, and this card signifies that it’s time to consider that change……

This card could also mean that your place of employment is changing.  You could be on the cusp of finding a new job.  Or, your current employer may transfer you to a new location, or promote you to a different area.

Regardless of the type of new location, trust that this is a change for the better that will bring great improvements into your life.


I now live and work in a safe, comfortable, spacious environment, in a wonderful location.”

             I abbreviated some of this because it felt as though the guidebook definition was too structured for our needs.  Like, some of us might be going with the very specific suggestion, but others may be leaning towards a more metaphysical move.

             Basically, we have some motion happening.   With a new or fluid circumstance in our lives.  Advances and changes for the good are definitely on the way.
