Abundance Mentality

ID-100150963A friend recently told me that money is an illusion.  It struck me funny.  What does that really mean? But I knew there was truth to it, and so I held onto it; I saved it for further contemplation.

I have discovered that the more I try to tightly control my finances, the more I get smacked by crazy expenses out of left field!  It is SO completely “coincidentally” connected sometimes, that I’m deciding to do something about it.  I’m going to release my attachment to control of money.  I’m going to trust in the Law of Abundance.

I am not going to suddenly entirely stop caring about money.  I’m going to continue to expect to be paid what I’m worth (and I still have much recognition to go!) And I do have “Pay the Bills” on my 10 Most Wanted list.  I’m going to live in the world, and I’m not going to become careless/lazy.  But I’m realizing — that’s all I really want and need with money — to pay the bills,  to continue to function, to meet my needs.  Anything else I desire at any time can be added to my 10 Most Wanted List as it arises.  I don’t need to have a certain amount of money in my checking or savings.  I need to know that I can continue to function and go on with my work in this world.  And the universe keeps affirming this OVER and OVER.  Angel number sightings and card readings repeatedly tell me: “Chill out!  You have everything you need. And we’ll help you.  We love you.  No worrying.  Keep following your plan. Keep doing the work.”

So, that’s what I’m going to do.  I’m going to keep doing the work.  I’m going to keep working on the connection with my inner Self, keep my physical self happy and healthy, embrace creation and the development of my passions, and serve for the good of all concerned.

May the universe continue to encourage and guide me and all of you! ❤

Metaphysics Monday: Anchors

This morning I dreamt of being back in school. I was an adult studying in an elementary school classroom. I’ve done enough dream analysis to know what that means — There’s a lesson I’m overdue to learn.

I’ve been seeing TONS of 1’s and 4’s combinations lately. Joanne Sacred Scribes says:

1’s and 4’s indicate that the angels are emphasizing strongly that you remain aware of your thoughts and intentions at the moment. The angels counsel you to make a special wish as you are now in a position where you are able to manifest your thoughts. You are asked to ensure that your desires are for the highest good, as the old adage ‘careful what you wish for as you just may get it’ is relevant here.

I’ve rearranged my 10 Most Wanted. . . . I believe it’s geared more toward the highest good now . . .

My uncle and I had our monthly resolution check-in today.  We ended by talking about anchors.  My Past Life Crossing intuitive report said that I try to throw down anchors with everyone and everything to stabilize myself.  But I really need to stabilize within.  Is this the lesson I need to learn today? We both made some good connections about how we’ve been “throwing down anchors” lately. and we considered how we can approach situations differently, from a place of objectivity, peace, flexibility, and love.

It is 11:14.  A good time to end. 🙂

Reflection on My Top 10

According to my metaphysics class, I’m not supposed to call this list the “Top 10”, but this is my blog, so nyah, nyah, nyah! 🙂 (Ego involved here?  Naah!)

Here are my Top 10 from my original post in the beginning of July:

1. Play time.  — Unchanged.

2. Art time — Still a need but combined with others numbers.

3. Sacred Space. — Unchanged.

4. $2500 a month.  — Made it once!  Something I am really struggling with; had to make an adjustment.

5. Enlightenment  – Would be great.  Quite a hefty goal!

6. Work clothes. — Not so much of a concern, but it does bother me that my clothes presently don’t fit right.

7. Etsy skirts – Got ’em!

8. Fish tank —  Got it!

9. Mortgage paid —  Unchanged but reworded.

10. Bike 100 miles (in one day). —  Did it!

Here are my newbies/repeats:

1. Awareness of my thoughts; changing negative affirmations to positive ones

2. Fulfilling work

3. Time and abundance.

4. Play

5. Debt-Free

6. Experiencing Light and Bringing Light

7. Finished basement.

8. Sacred Space.

9. Being in a band

10. Dance

These might take a little longer to accomplish, but they are what I really want.  Time to go meditate, visualize, and concentrate before I fall asleep!

It All Started with a Fish Tank. . . Introduction and Challenge #1


When we got the fish tank from our craigslist guy, he told us that it was just too much to maintain.  That didn’t strike me at the time. . . *
It struck me as I was typing this that this was going to turn into a very long post.  So, I’m starting you off with Challenge #1.  And I’ll also give you a teaser: we have 3 zebra danios, and as of Day 2, they are all still alive.  So far so good. . .*

It all started with my 10 Most Wanted List.  At some point I became obsessed with having a fish tank.  I’m not sure why.  Up until this point I’d sworn off all fish tanks: “No birds!  No fish!  We have cats!”  But I thought that it would be beautiful, and I had the perfect spot for it (see above).   Yes, I’d imagined it being a little bit higher to protect it a little better from the cats, but, it could work.

Let me start off by saying that when I started this project I was green.  Very green. And Brian even more so.  I was working off memories of my 10-gallon starter fish tank from 20 years ago.  And Brian had a fish bowl with a beta.  This is what I had from that  experience: 1. Get a tank bigger than ten gallons.  2. Do not leave dead fish in the tank.  So. . . clearly I knew the important stuff.

I set my mind on that tank.  Brian wanted to get our tank from Craigslist.  Part of me wanted a brand new tank to make sure everything functioned and was clean, but saving a few bucks and keeping a tank out of the landfill sounded pretty good.  And so the journey began.

Challenge #1: Cleaning the New (old) Tank

Choosing the tank and picking up the tank from the city proved to be the easiest part (though the waiting was a little painful).  But everything else was a challenge.  The previous owner had not cleaned the tank because he didn’t want to harm the life of our future fish.  Understandable.  Fish are very sensitive.  But, that left us with a rather unpleasant/unsightly tank with an unknown history.

So, step number one was Shaklee natural disinfectant and cleaner.  I know, I know.  You fish-lovers out there are cringing, and I’m a little nervous, too.  However, we had no idea what we were dealing with here, and so far everything appears ok.  (And what was that green stuff, anyway??  Algae?  Brian later told me it was probably lime from the water. I’m still not sure.)    I let the plants soak and the tank soak, and the miscellaneous-pieces-in-the-bucket-we’d-gotten-that-didn’t-have-cords-hanging–out-the-back soak.  (I learned later that I may have killed off beneficial bacteria.  Then, I learned even later that the beneficial bacteria had dried up a long time ago and was most likely very long dead.)

Next, I proceeded to try to wipe at — then scrub at — the tank and all of the pieces that had the yucky green stuff.  (We hosed off all the plastic plants.)  The green stuff wasn’t coming off.  I had some vague memory of using a razor blade on the tank in the past, but that seemed a little odd to me.  I scrubbed and scrubbed and SCRUBBED with one of those scratchy green Shaklee pads and ended up giving up and getting a butter knife (which mostly did the trick until I couldn’t take it anymore).  After everything was sufficiently clean/I was sufficiently exhausted, we hosed everything off again a few times and started looking at the pieces in front of us.

To be continued for Challenge #2. . .
