We recently discovered a fascinating series produced by the BBC.  Each episode features a “genius” and they tell that person’s story.  Clearly, and with historic accuracy.  Which is fun.

             What is less entertaining is how so many of our great thinkers have also suffered, been misinterpreted, and never lived to see their work recognized.  I know there’s a plan, but it sometimes makes me sad.

             Like how I can’t always enjoy sporting events because I don’t want any side to lose.  I wish every player and fan could come out a winner.  Is it so much to ask that we all live happily ever after?

             Apparently, that’s not what we’re here for.  Which, as I said, I know.  But the knowing doesn’t much alleviate the struggle, some days.

             Directly from the Universe, to me and you, here’s where to turn:

rise above.

             My mother, and niece, and I are what people call “women of strong faith” even though none of us are remotely religious.  We believe, we know, we entirely feel in a spiritual way.  So, when challenges arise, roadblocks appear, we seek answers.

              My own recent medical and work situation has caused me to really search for meaning.  It’s been difficult.  Daily.

             Which makes this message so much more meaningful, on a personal level, but also on a global one.  We are being instructed to find our detours.  Go around, move past, let go, and yes….. rise above.

             To do this, we have to focus.  Then, we have to walk away.  We can’t spend time suffering or whining, or screaming at problems.  Because in truth, there are no problems.  Merely lessons that we haven’t quite figured out.  Yet.

             Here’s an old Doreen affirmation that I feel will help us:

             My heart, my mind, my life, and everyone in it are perfectly at peace right now.

no such thing as problems

To rise, and go above




Physical Toil and Trust

             We just talked about being in Mercury’s retrograding Shadow Phase.  But what we did NOT discuss was all the other planets that are currently doing the backward dance.

             (See that middle category   [over there   <——-  ]  which I’ve entitled: Additional Helpful Reminders.  It’s current.  Not complete, though.)

             I mention this because we here in The Burrow have had several delays lately.  Shit that just goes sideways, no matter what we do or say or plan.  But also, because our message this morning is of the same feeling.

Putting back together is messy.

             For whatever reason (maybe we’ll know later, maybe we won’t), the physical forward progress around here has been nil.   Not exactly going back, but we certainly aren’t making any ahead movements, either.

             When the Universe reminds us that our lives/bodies/dilemmas and problems are not quite as tidy as we’d like, hmmm, that’s not terrific.  It does not bode well.   However, that doesn’t mean it isn’t necessary.  Or that we can’t get through it.

             We are inherently messy creatures, animals in nature are, that’s just a given.  We’re leaky, we’re loud, and some of us (me!) have no sense of decorum, what so ever.  “Putting back together,” or perhaps spiraling upward, clearly needs to be done.

             It’s also obvious that this is going to be a grubby, blotchy, and chaotic endeavor.   For certain.  Unquestionably.

             Is our daily draw very helpful?  Maybe.  Depends on how well we are at releasing right now.  There is much that we need to let go of.  Lots.  We should probably accept that, so our work will proceed more smoothly.

“Goddess of the Sacred Path  ~

Let go of logic and trust your intuition.

This is a time to let go of what you think is logical and trust your feelings.  What is it that you would truly love to do or experience at this point in your life?  Imagine.  If you could do anything, what would it be? 

The answer dwells in  your heart, not in your mind.  This is because your heart holds your true essence, it is the gateway to your soul – whereas the mind dwells more within fears which often prevent us from fulfilling our true potential.

All is possible, when what you choose to do and experience, aligns with your heartfelt purpose and dreams.  Trust your feelings.  

Start to keep a journal in which you express and explore all it is you would truly love to be, have, and do in life.

Do this lovingly and honestly and  you will be gently guided along your sacred path.”

             Can she help us with the “messy”?  I like to think so.  Step back and see what most needs doing now, then, let go of what isn’t helping us put our shit back together.

Affirmation For March:

is from my Louise Hay calendar.

“I communicate with love and attract loving experiences and people to me.”

             Continuing, with her message to us, on how she applied the principles of her Sacred Path, and did her own putting back together.

“Communication is a song of love.

Loving communication is one of the happiest and most powerful experiences for people.

How do I get to this space?  I have done a lot of work on myself.  I have read many books, and I have come to understand the principles of life, such as ‘what I think and say goes our from me, the Universe responds, and it comes back to me.’

So I begin to ask myself for help and to observe myself.

As I allow myself the space to watch without judgement and without criticism,  I begin to make great progress in loving communication.

What do I believe?  What do I feel?  How do I react?  How can I love more?  And then I say to the Universe, ‘teach me love.’ “

             (Additionally,  I may have lost the Mermaid Water Bottle replacement.  Fingers crossed that it’s someplace where they’ll recognize it’s mine and hang on to it.)
