Vision Board Journal Cover

I discovered something awesome to do with my vision board — make it into my journal cover!  Then I can consciously look at it every day — AND it motivates me to write in my journal more.  Once the journal is done, it’s time to refresh my vision board.

Much love and many blessings. ❤

Happiness is. . .

Happiness is

  • cuddling on the couch with the cats after hubby and the dogs have gone to bed
  • feeling accomplished and acknowledged at work
  • functioning technology
  • a spontaneous “adult drink” and ice cream shop date with the hubby
  • Bowser healing up
  • learning that hubby wants to go to Japan as much as I do
  • soothing hot water (not tea, just water!)
  • a good meditation
  • sneaking the blog in and heading off to bed back with hubby

 

Much love and many blessings. ❤

1110, 5’s and 2’s, and the Egret

IMG_1060

Mercury retrograde is over, and the weekend ended with a beautiful BANG! I had a fun night in Chicago at Tapster for my friend’s birthday. (That girl helps put the “Chicago” in this Chicago suburbanite!) This morning I went for a nice 2-hour walk with my mom and spotted one of my favorite birds.  This afternoon I took some steps to finally move my poor dog Bowser toward a raw food diet.

AND this weekend I FINISHED a rough draft of my home movie on the Camino on iMovie. What’s beautiful about this last one is that my mom and I attempted this project a year ago. We put HOURS of work into the project, only to have the software fail us at the last step. Inspiration hit me just this past week, and I decided to give the process another go with iMovie this time, a program I’ve recently begun to master because of work! So, FINALLY a year later I have something even better than we had envisioned before.  AND it turns out that we were able to easily transfer the photos and the soundtrack we’d created, so the work we’d done last year was not in vain!

On to the symbolism!

As I mentioned in my last post, 8/18/18 @ 8:18, I’ve been getting the message to clear some things out, wrap some things up, and focus on what I want to manifest. Great stuff!  These new number combos continue this theme.  5’s and 2’s are about trusting that the changes we are experiencing are for the highest good.  Multiple 1’s is a reminder of new beginnings, with the 0 amplifying them.  (Make a wish!)  Spirit is with us and ready to create!  The egret has been called an “opportunistic bird”, another reminder to keep the eyes on the prize and go for it!

How were your last few weeks?  I’m still doing some reflecting, but keep an eye out for this article coming soon: “Learnings from This Past Mercury Retrograde” (Had quite a few this go around!) Much love and many blessings. (Can you see the ducks, too?)

8/18/18 @ 8:18

aurora-borealis-1181004_1920

Earlier this week I saw a post on Facebook that mentioned that at 8:18 on Saturday (today) it would be 8:18 on 8/18/18.  I absolutely love number sequences and angel numbers, so I got a big kick out of that.

But what’s even more fun is that just this morning — after taking the dogs out for a walk and giving Bowser a bath — I happened to catch the phone just at 8:18AM.  “Neat!” I thought, setting down the phone and not yet realizing what day it was. But then it clicked! I picked up the phone again, saw it was now 8:19, and I remembered what day it was.

You’ve got my attention, universe!

So, of course, I then had to look up 818.  Here’s what Joanne Sacred Scribes says about 8’s and 1’s:

The message of the repeating 8 and 1 combination is telling you that you are nearing the end of a significant and important phase of your life.  If there is some part of your life that is not flowing as you’d like, know that it will soon be healed or replaced with better, more suited things.

Surrender and release those parts of your life that are not working for you, as your thoughts and intentions of a better life are coming your way.

The numbers 8 and 1 combined tells you to think only thoughts of abundance and prosperity.  Your thoughts are manifesting very quickly at the moment and you want them to be positive rather than negative.

This coincides wonderfully with what’s happening astrologically today — the end of mercury retrograde.  This can be a very challenging time but can also be seen as a great time for clearing out, as old lessons are brought to the surface.  Click here for an interesting article on the subject.  And I may end up doing my own article on my latest Mercury retrograde experience.

Finally, let’s finish up with some timely affirmations by Abraham Hicks, “Everything Is Always Working Out for Me.”

Have a beautiful day.  Much love and many blessings. ❤

I Made My First Pants!

img_1007.jpgIt’s kind of crazy how dreams are becoming reality.  Not too many years ago I wasn’t even dreaming.  I was advised to “have fun” — but I didn’t know what that meant.

Then I started thinking: “I might like to do that someday.”  And “Maybe I could try that.”

And now I’m doing things.  I talked with my friend years ago about learning how to sew from her — and now I’ve sewn two pillow cases and a pair of pants!  (Just need to manifest my own sewing machine!)  I kept thinking I should dance more, that it might be nice to take a dance class — now I’m going to teach one!  I’m journaling and going Live in the mornings; I’m blogging every night. My first Artist’s Way 12-week group officially starts tomorrow. Things that took FOREVER for me to get going are suddenly all locking into place.

I’m beginning to feel the abundance, I’m opening, I’m freeing up, and I’m so grateful.

Wishing the same for you each and every day!  Much love and many blessings. ❤

“The Eyes to See”

paint-2985569_1920.jpg

I once asked in an intuitive report about connecting with the angels.  The response was that these energies were already available to me. I just needed the “eyes to see”.  This puzzled me a bit, and I came away from my first listen thinking that I was just not trained enough, maybe just not metaphysical enough yet.

But today the message popped up for me again (as messages often do), and I realized that wasn’t it at all.  It means that the angels already were communicating with me all of the time.  I just couldn’t see it.

They were whispering in my ear to pick up guitar again and play for the patients at the nursing home.  They were the voice of the volunteer coordinator who told me it was a great idea.  They were the kick in the butt that finally got me out the door and to the home for that beautiful experience with a patient and his family as he was getting nearer to transitioning.

They were the nudge to pick up The Vortex from the used book store, the voice of my coach telling me to read it, and in the voices of the patients who inspired me to leave the book in the waiting room after it had been sitting in my back untouched.  They were also in the voice of the waiting patient who days later read a passage from the book that I needed to hear as much as she did.

They are in the coincidences, the messages I receive from songs, words from friends and strangers, angel numbers, and feelings of inspiration and joy.

In another text I listened to or read recently, it said angels are always there.  It doesn’t matter whether you believe in them or not, they will continue to be there for you, loving you and helping you.

What a beautiful thing. ❤  Much love and many blessings. ❤

Release Time

What are you currently focusing on?

I feel like I’ve been hitting some big walls lately.  The biggest is my frustration with not moving “fast enough.”  The message I keep receiving (from intuition, from my environment, etc) is to let go of the concept of time.  It doesn’t even really exist.  It’s a manmade construct.  As I was walking back to the house today, I really noticed the trees in front of me in a new way.  I realized that though they seem static to me, they are also growing, moving and thriving.  Do the trees complain about not growing “fast enough”?  Not likely.  They understand the universal flow.

Perhaps this is what my intuitive report meant by growing close to God through nature.  Nature innately understands what I sometimes miss.  It was good to soak up some of that good sun today.  I barely even noticed the cold.

Much love and many blessings. ❤
