Celebrate ~ One Day At A Time

Published August 22, 2017 by tindertender


Regardless of what happened yesterday, today is still a good day to be happy again. Leave the past where it is so you can keep moving forward. Just because they hurt you, it doesn’t mean that you can’t heal. Just because they couldn’t see your value, it doesn’t mean that someone else never will. Just because the relationship ended, it doesn’t mean that it is the end of your love life. Be happy with yourself today. Celebrate the fact that you are still a great person and that you did not allow one bad experience to control how you approach the rest of your life. Live, Love and Laugh, one day at a time. ॐ

Letting Go

Published August 11, 2017 by tindertender


At some point, all of us will most likely feel it. I know of one personally who did not have it touch life until later in years, however, it came, nonetheless.

No one is immune to the swing of the pendulum. None of us are alone in the reality that all must experience these shifts.

True, great love can bring great despair, but I am grateful for those who allow it in their lives, for it is they, who have truly lived. It is difficult to pull through these dark times. A positive mind set and outlook doesn’t always seem to get us where we would like to be. With patience, effort and perseverance, things will shift.

I wonder if sometimes the pain of it all simply cause us to give in to the suffering. I know in my personal experience, for a time, I did indeed give in. I lost hope. But you see, I LOVE life, and so I waited, stretching my capacity to endure even the hardest of times. And the smog of that drenching and suffocating gloom lifted.

Patience is key to so much of everything. Things do not always change because we want them to. No, they become new when divinity sees it is time, for the alchemy of our soul depends on these experiences.

Trust the process.

Sometimes, willingly stepping out from our comfort zone, rather than holding with that death grip onto what we feel “okay” with, we allow for greater good to enter our lives. At times, it could appear as though we are taking steps backward … know that this is the way of change, it may not have any resemblance to what you’ve become accustomed to.

With positive mind set, open eyes and heart, willingness to see the bigger reality of the moment, we can see that letting go is often the only true way of holding onto that which has the most value … LOVE ~ for self, for others, for the world.

Working Through Tension

Published June 15, 2017 by tindertender

Nothing to do … twiddle thumbs, look around … and eat. Get up from chair, pace the room, repeat.

A new adventure is about to begin. When these moments in life, these opportunities occur, it may feel as though the clock stops, butterflies do their thing in the belly and slight agitation erupts in the mind.


Calming the nerves takes effort and practice. Running at 1000 miles per hour, or 2 ~ it has the same affect. Being so busy one cannot think, and being so stagnant that is all one has to do, has the same unsettling outcome … both require an effort of stilling the mind.

With eyes shut feel a long breath enter the lungs, with a long slow exhale, feel it leave. Pay attention to the way air moves into, and out of, the body. Do not stop after 3, let the uncomfortable sensation sit, keep breathing ~ slowly. After a time, a small relaxation will arrive … keep breathing. Breathe through the need to get up and be busy … just sit and breathe.

Forward, Ever Forward

Many will lash out in spitting anger, they will outright attack you. I see it every day, personally, and I know you do as well. Hold on, it will smooth out, it will take a little time yet, however time is a gift.

Time is a gift.pngTime is the gift given to those who have chosen to hold on to pain and suffering, and who choose, even if not consciously, to continue the cycle. There is still opportunity to turn it around.

Active participation in what is wanted is the key to positive change. The energies spent being shocked and appalled and voicing opinions as such, are better spent on working toward a peaceful, connected, and honorable reality. Take that power which is yours and apply it to the future you wish to see. Start with your heart, pay attention to the smile you offer people, instead of letting it fall from your face as soon as the walk away, hold it, hold it in place for just another moment and consider the conversation, the connection.

Smile_1Soon you will see that wearing a smile does something to the mind, it shifts thought patterns from a somewhat dark nature to an upward lift, something brighter, a spring might even form in the steps you take.

This power is in you. No one need give permission for you to gather this ingrained wonder which resides in your inner most being and utilizing it for the benefit of the future. I am not speaking of monetary gain or title, I am speaking of self value … what do you think when you consider your life? Do you find yourself on the defensive? Or are you embracing every moment, every opportunity for growth?

Patience.jpgIt is not necessary to convince another that you are worthy. When you are certain of your value in your mind, in your heart, life flows … what comes is meant to be, and what does not come is a hint of better things on the horizon.

Be patient.
Know that it is going to be alright.
All things needed for the benefit of all life are coming.


Today’s Painting and A Tune

Published May 12, 2017 by tindertender

For several hours I relax and paint. I am at peace. I view the finished art and am quite satisfied. I seal it and set it aside to dry while I cook dinner.

After supper, I sit at the computer and Whoa!! A wave of energy hits me, definitely intense and not so pleasant. I remember this is only energy, and it will pass … I breathe … and it fades.

I turn to the music and let it roll through my mind.

I wear my Garnet chain with the Ruby in Zoisite stone. I was drawn to the chain and pendant right away when I entered the Mystery Gallery yesterday afternoon.

The Garnet has long been known as the Warrior’s Stone. Soldiers wore or carried this stone as a talisman against death or injury. Garnet was also said to bring victory, peace and tranquility, as well as help heal injuries.

Ruby in Zoisite is an energy amplification that can energize the entire vibrational field of one’s body. It is used for psychic ability and empowerment, as well as altered states of consciousness. Ruby in Zoisite stimulates the crown chakra. Physically, it is beneficial for heart disorders and for physical vitality.

I suppose it is no wonder I am at peace. I am not attributing it to the new pretties, however I do love them. I also have complete and utter faith in that which guides me. I know in my heart that what is for everyone’s highest and greatest good will be. I will not fret about it.

The Time Is Near

Published April 11, 2017 by tindertender


The crazy woman who used to run roughshod over life has been released, for the most part. Her kick has lessened and is nearly gone.

There is a new lady in town. She is firm, sure, and methodical. Very observant, she watches … she listens … she asks questions. The answers she receives are not only words (or lack of them) but it is the body language, the energy output, the nervous delays and twitches. She notices over-confidence, she pays attention to unnatural familiarity, she takes note of boundaries ignored and lines crossed.

Naivety has taken a hike, or rather, has been thrown out of the house.

These days ~ these events ~ will be reckoned with in due course. Patience is key, and the time is near.


Relief ~ Soil Play

Published March 24, 2017 by tindertender

The last two days were quite a challenge. I work in a space with 5 other people, 3 of which seem to always be in a foul mood and urging each other to discuss rather passionately all that has, and could, go wrong and how it affects, or will affect, them.


I wore my headphones the last two days listening to Harmonic Sound Frequencies, yet I could still hear them talking as they raised their voices to be sure everyone understood the trauma they were experiencing. It was all I could do to keep my self from reacting. I had to leave the room periodically just to get a break from it.

Sadly I don’t think they are aware of what they are promoting in their lives, and in so doing, in others a well. I was getting the look … as though it disturbed (at least one) that I was not feeding into this drama. I tuned out, focused on my own work, and dealt with issues in a different manner.

There has got to be more to life than putting myself in a room full of people who can’t seem to pull their head out of negativity and spend that energy instead on building a healthy outlook. Five days a week, 9-10 hours a day, I listen to them ~ it is getting old.

Now that I have walked a moment in the shoes I write distaste for, I will gather myself and practice pulling my energies away from those thought forms, and detach from the hooks that have been placed in my mind during the past week.

plant startsRelieved, I am home, and tomorrow I will play with the dirt as I plant my starts. I am excited to grow my own food, and then prepare what I don’t use right away for later use.

May the sun shine on us and give the plants an opportunity to firmly take hold in the fresh soil.
