Today is a day to focus on humor. It is important to see the “light” ~ as in the light side of things. Nothing unites me with other people more than laughter, and very few things are better for my health and peace of mind. Today I banish all thoughts that make me sad and welcome only those that make me, and everyone around me, smile.
Today is a day to focus on protection. I will protect my heart and mind from the negative thoughts, feelings, and actions of others. I do not immerse myself in problems. I do not worry about things I cannot control. I do not try to change people or things just because I think they should be different. Instead, I focus on the positive aspects of all people and situations.
Stop focusing and planning and be at peace in the moment. Patience is key at this time. Slow down, sit back, and watch the roses bloom and the birds feed in the meadow. This isn’t the time to forge ahead in any way. You may not be taking enough breaks, so you’re invited to be still and contemplate your good fortune, even if it means blessing the chaos in your life. Allow everything to fall away except the stillness of the moment; it’s like living within the space between breaths.
You’ve done all you can for now and it’s time to unwind and allow your story to unfold of its own accord. You’ve earned the right to rest and relax. Amazing ideas will come if you do. Remember the ancient saying “We do without doing and everything gets done.”
Too many of the details behind your current circumstances prevent you from moving forward quickly at this time. A light is being shed on what is concealed within you or your situation. This is the time to wait for more to be revealed.
Perhaps you lack clarity and the knowledge of how to proceed. It’s time to educate yourself a little more about your intention and then put that information to work for you. Dig deep to gain strength and have the courage to ask someone “in the know” to shed light on your circumstances. That person will be sent to you. Beware of moving too quickly in the dark, as you will likely trip and fall and have to start again.
You’re being given an opportunity to transform Fate into Destiny. At birth, each human being is given a unique map with myriad paths that intersect with one another. Your map of Destiny shows all the places you’re meant to visit, places where you will be challenged to evolve into the highest aspects of the Self.
Remember that you’re a spark of the Divine come to Earth to experience Itself in human form. As such, your path is unique. It’s also somewhat preordained, and Fate represents the events in your life that were meant to happen and that you can’t change. Fate is transformed into Destiny according to how you respond to your circumstances. Destiny offers you the ability to make great opportunities out of fated experience, so free will and choice are possible at certain points on your map.
Now is one of those times. You’re faced with a relationship or circumstance brought to you by Fate. How you respond will lead you into your perfect Destiny. Your Ally may assume the form of a soul mate come to heal your heart and be your companion. Perhaps your Challenger makes you face things within you that must change in order for you to express your highest good. Maybe Fate brings you and Ally in the form of a wonderful new project … or a Challenger in the form of a failed business.
No matter which form they take, all are perfect expressions of Fate inviting you into your Destiny. Pay attention as your map unfolds now. And remember that Fate makes the map, but Destiny is determined by the manner in which you engage your journey.
Move with your own rhythm, step to the music only you can hear. The path is winding and circular. You are assured that what you were experiencing as a setback is really part of an upward spiral. Perception is everything: you’re not retracing your steps or going backward, but rather around and up. You can be comforted, knowing that your path is one of success, adventure, and experience.
Keep on dancing and magic will happen. Also, it’s okay to allow someone else to take the lead at this time. Make sure to let others know that you’re open. Always remember that relationships are mirrors and will show you the past, the present, and the potential future.
All relationships have a destiny. Each is a sacred teacher with valuable lessons to share, even if it appears that the two of you are dancing in different directions. All the steps are perfect, even when you may seem to be stumbling. Destiny’s true path is seldom straight.
After your rest and relaxation …
You will be rightly inspired to move forward and take confident and assertive action to reach your goal.
Envisioning the path of the highest good with an optimistic outlook, things come together as if by magic to create the reality you seek.
You have every reason to be hopeful. Move forward, knowing that you have everything you need and more. Just remember to share the enthusiasm, believe in others, and be optimistic for them too, and your good fortune will multiply.
Reading from the deck “Wisdom of the Hidden Realms” created by Colette Baron-Reid
Coming into love for self is a challenge, for most of we have been taught that to consider self as deserving or sacred is selfish …. that we ought to think of others before self.
As the training goes, and as experience tells us, when we deplete our inner resources by constantly filling anothers cup (or others), our own cup becomes depleted.
From a state of depletion, depression occurs, anger happens, even hopelessness …..
The selfless, nurturing the selfish …. it is a form of vampirism that we all participate in, or have at one time.
The human must do what is necessary to ensure the personal, inner cup always be in a state of overflow in order to share, and fill, others cups.
This means self-care is crucial to our existence. Self-love, self-respect, self-care …. taking time with GAIA … she always replenishes us.
Spending time in prayer … not as the church teaches it … but as our Soul and Spirit call us to do.
Yesterday I spent my day drumming, singing and dancing … men played out the heartbeat, drumming in unison, women stood behind them as all sang prayers to Creator for the health, happiness and well-being of our brothers and sisters, our family.
The energy was high, my body electrified as I danced around the drummers and singers, lifting the prayers to Creator, to the very heavens and all who hear.
We shared a community meal, we spoke to each other in a soft way, we listened to each other, leaving behind the chaos of the city … of the square world … and we spent the day in sacred union, one with another, in love, care, compassion.
Release was shared, and blessings given. Two exchanged feathers and their relationship will be observed by the family (all members) for one year and at the end of this time, if everyone approves of their care for one another, they will be wed in the sacred ceremony of the Cherokee.
Observe to what you apply your attention and energy to.
Will this situation benefit from my sacred care and contribution for wellness, for happiness?
Or will the receiver use it up and demand more without care or reciprocation?
Our time and attention are the currency of our Spirit, our Soul. It is the most precious gift you can impart to this world and life within it.
Be certain you pay yourself first.
Your cup must remain full, your mind, body, spirit and soul requires that you care for self prior to assisting others … if not, your capacity to do good dwindles, and you become vulnerable to all the negative side effects of an empty cup.
Do not think that someone will come along and fill it for you.
This is our personal responsibility.
So I implore you …. practice self-love and self-care.
Helping others will be so much easier and more powerful when you have plenty to share … and remember … self-care, self-love, is a continuous, evolving process.
It is time to develop new, healthier habits.
Release the old ways … recognize the Sacred in you.
Today is a day to focus on nurturing. I can nurture the people and other beings around me that need to be nurtured. Nurturing can be physical, by helping with material needs for sustenance of growth. Or it can be emotional, showing love, attention, and respect. Today I will look for ways to nurture my friends, my family, myself, and my environment with my thoughts, my words, and my actions.
The battle for Souls is very real …. some would rather not admit this reality. Myself, I have 17 years experience with the ones who mean to enslave us … so if anyone wants to tell me to be mindful … I say, you can bet I AM.
Sugar coating reality does not help anyone.
This battle is unlike any other, you can’t see it, but you can feel it.
The way to counter those who mean to siphon you, or manipulate you, or ensanare you in any way is to:
~ Stop abusing substances, first and foremost. This includes, most especially (among certain others), alcohol.
~ If you smoke, make an effort to quit. If you choose to use the cannabis plant, ingest it rather than smoke. Smoking pollutes not only your lungs, but your energy. It lowers your vibratory output and makes you more vulnerable to psychic attack.
~ Turn off the television ‘programming’ and cut-off the media … they’ll poison your thoughts and keep you in a low vibratory state.
~ Claim your thought patterns, know they are influenced. You’ve heard that story, an angel is on one shoulder while the devil is on the other? It is true …
~ Recognize what thoughts are yours, and which come into the mind arbitrarily. Good messages, accept. Negative messages, toss to the side. Give them NO attention or energetic output … you’ll strengthen them if you give your power to it.
~ Master your emotions, do not be mastered by them.
~ You must claim your Sovereignty.
~ Stand your ground and become the best version of yourself possible.
~ Revise your self-talk. So often we say negative things to our self … when we mess up, when things don’t go right we might think it happened (Or didn’t) because we do not deserve it …. WE DO.
~ As soon as you recognize a phrase of negative self-talk in your mind, immediately rephrase the thought or statement into one which is positive. Counter attack those pesky belittling comment creepers.
~ Cultivate the power of self-forgiveness, self-care, and self-love. When this becomes strong, you’ll have sufficient prowess to assist others.
~ Clean up your diet. No more processed foods. Eat fresh, (organic if possible) fruits and vegetables. If you must eat meat, purchase from a local, organic and humane farmer. Drink a lot of water, the physical form needs it to flush out low-vibe energies.
~ Exercise. Go walking, dance in the living room, rearrange the furniture … anything that makes your heart work.
~ Quiet your mind for at least a few moments of the day, grow the length of quiet time as you get comfortable with it.
Health, Happiness, Wholeness … and FREEDOM are your right.
As with all things worth having, it will require you to do the work.
Gifts do not just show up … we must show our sincerity in a situation and do the steps necessary to fulfill that vision.
In time, with conscious persistence , we reformat our reality …
