Happy New Year!

Dragonfly energy, ancient and transformative, can represent a powerful time of new beginnings.  The nymph morphs into the adult dragonfly, leaving behind its old form to meet its full potential. We have a choice to leave the old year behind and seek our dreams for the new one.

Learning from Holly

Even on cold, snowy days, holly shows us abundant red berries and durable green leaves.  It speaks of generosity and a fresh energy to endure winter’s grip. 


Holly reminds us to calm our emotions in order to reach wise decisions about our circumstances.  Something grand reveals itself only in stable minds.

Seasonal Beauty

Darkness is only a backdrop for LIGHT.

Let's not forget that what we think is darkness hovering the earth is LIGHT waiting to be revealed. 

We encourage the disappearance of darkness  by thinking, speaking, and acting as LIGHT.

Be kind to all living things.

Sacred Spaces

We all need a special area, whether in our home, neighborhood or mind, where we can retreat. 


Include time for yourself during this hectic month of December. It will make all of the difference in your holidays.

Life Reflection


“Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.” 
― Søren Kierkegaard



FAITH is the magic that holds our future dreams in the cosmic web.  Look back at how many have already come true for you.

Spider Webs

If spider webs grab your attention more than usual, they may have a message for you.  A cohesive web represents tying things together for the spider:

A place to reside (Web)
Manifestation (Prey)
Recycle into a new web (Dream).

Are you preparing the home front and getting ready to manifest your dreams?

Patience

Our fast-paced, technological world demands instant action and results. In Nature, all unfolds at its own rate and time.

Abraham Hicks:
How can I make the Law of Attraction work faster?

According to Abraham, we create our own resistance with doubt, anger, fear, etc.  We spend more thought on why the LOA won't work instead of preparing for a new thing to emerge.

Moon Phase

A waxing crescent moon heralds new light and energy in the sky.  It has powerful, symbolic meaning in DAPHNE’S WEB as its image triggers an extraordinary, life changing leap for one of the characters.


Daphne's Web: coming soon.

Awesome Autumn

Autumn reminds us that change is something we can count on.

"This too shall pass"might just give us peace of mind during times of transition.

Passageways

In the physical world, Passageways bring us from one place  to another.

Unseen "portals" connect us to other dimensions, allowing travel through the veil. 

Have you ever had such an experience?

Mum's the Word

As last of garden's bloom, Chrysanthemum is a beautiful symbol of Mother Earth getting ready for winter.  



HONOR the cycles of life by remembering that when the wheel returns, we may enjoy our dreams if we devoted the quiet times to right-minded thinking.

Perfect Harmony

As with music,  perfect harmony in the human experience exists only momentarily.

To have peace, we must become aware we are not choosing peaceful ways. We can always choose again, once we know we are the cause of our emotional and physical imbalance. The Power for change rests within us.

No Opposites

One thing can be its own opposite— depending upon our point of view.  

Are you  coming or going...starting or finishing?   Every opposite is simply a different degree of the same thing. When we realize that, we can stop judging.

Geranium Symbolism

If geranium has caught your attention, be aware it has diverse symbolism and you are to decide its message.  It  might convey just what you need to think about at the moment.

The first thought that comes to mind when you spot a geranium today will reveal hidden information buried deep in subconscious.  Can you handle the message?  




Friday, September 16, 2016

Fly Over

When trouble or challenge shows up, we can rise above the circumstances and "see" beyond them to a Higher Truth. 

That Truth is always a form of Love, including an urgent "call" for Love.

Sky's the Limit?

Mind is not earthbound so even the sky cannot limit us. 


Fear and worry restrict us from reaching even the simplest of our dreams and goals. Will you place these obstacles on the alter for release?

Nature's Visitors

Robin redbreast in our attention might signal it is time to let go of attachments bogging us down.  This bird could show up even in the depths of winter as a reminder that renewal can occur no matter the circumstance.  



Always remain optimistic. 








Friday, August 26, 2016

Comfort Zone

Staying in our comfort keeps us stagnant.  You never know what beauty or adventure lies beyond. 


The joy of life is more in the unknown than the known. Face your fears and step into something grand. 








Friday, August 19, 2016

Garden Gates

We can leave behind a troubled world by opening a garden gate.  


Lavishly plant a garden of loving thoughts.   Water the seeds with kind deeds. Enjoy a personal haven of your own creation.

The Pendulum Swings

Everything finds its balance after going to the extremes.



It's individual.  To some, the world is collapsing.  To others, it's beginning.

Seeing Stars

Are images of stars catching your fancy or do you crave a starlit night to peer deep into the cosmos?  Perhaps your attention is being drawn to them for a reason.


Stars hold great symbolism of the future, renewal, healing….

Magic

Solitude is a positive state of rebalancing, growing, getting to know ourself.  Loneliness makes us feel disconnected and deprived.  


The magic happens when we shift our perception. 






Friday, July 22, 2016

Simplify

Sometimes we  juggle too many balls in the air at once.


 
Simplicity is the healthiest way to live.  Whatever is least important, might have to wait or even be eliminated from daily routine. 

Can we let go of anything?

Struggle

If a beautiful flower can bloom in the harshest of circumstances, why can't we? 


Many of the greatest achievements in the world have come out of one's suffering.  But that's only possible when we look for the goodness in tough times.

Time Out

It's not only kids who need "time out." Adults do too.  Take a moment away from the chaos of life to appreciate and rebalance.  


Finding solace in a world of chaos depends upon our ability to go within, to pray, and to be silent.  






Friday, July 1, 2016

Consciousness

All the world is an illusion, a grand stage, waiting for us to produce and direct the performance. 

WARNING:  DON'T PUT ALL YOUR FOCUS ON WHAT IS NOT REAL. 







Friday, June 24, 2016

Soul Purpose

So often, we think we are in the wrong place or doing the wrong work.  Many times, we think we have spoken the wrong words. But those thoughts of doubt are not true. 

Everything is exactly as it should be.  Each moment hides a profound Truth, one that can lead us to our Soul Purpose.  Search within for the lesson. The instant we can "see" is the same moment our circumstances change for the better.

Life Force

All living matter has a vital force -- energy.  


Humans have the exceptional ability to direct energy by way of thought.

INTENTIONAL thought that is generated from LOVE -- can move mountains of problems.

If we choose to release our anger and entertain compassion instead, we ward off negativity in our life.

Paradox: One or Many?

Complex root, trunk and leaf systems bring forth a singular life form - a tree!

Numbers of people, animals, forms of Nature make us believe in differences. 

A highly evolved individual knows that it is all ONE and from the ONE.  Therefore, we are all THAT and THAT is each one of us.

Seeds of Life

Nature is abundant. 

It is possible to count the number of seeds in an apple. But...we can never count the number of potential apples in each seed that is planted in rich soil. 

So it is with the seeds of ideas that we plant.  Nourish them until they take root. Endurance is the secret to manifesting a rich harvest.  







Friday, May 27, 2016

Manifesting

Plant a seed (an idea), nourish it (emotion and intention), pull weeds (refrain from doubt and impatience), water regularly (proper action as though it has already manifested) and one day... Voila!  

Every advancement in society has come by way of someone's persistence. Look at what we take for granted -- travel, medical advances, technology -- the list is endless.  

What is your idea?

Finding Treasure

Abundance presents Herself in strange ways.  

Abundance is all around us -- in Nature and every cell that makes up the human body -- seeking to flourish, always.

An impoverished life calls upon us to recognize Abundance  everywhere She exists.  When we can do that, in spite of our dismal circumstances, we begin to draw in Her gifts.

The Rose

The Rose has a powerful metaphysical meaning--freedom from the lower nature of mankind. 

When we can be loving instead of hateful, forgiving instead of angry, we will begin to smell the scent of roses when no physical flowers are nearby. 

Spirit is acknowledging our evolutionary advancement. 







Friday, May 6, 2016

Awake or Not

Are you awake?  Am I awake?
Sleeping Consciousness is difficult to understand because the words reflect our behaviors during the body's wakened state. 

But if we are prone to fear of any kind and in any form such as anger or jealousy, we are asleep in consciousness.  We do not understand the "mirror" in the circumstances that triggered dark emotions. 





Friday, April 29, 2016

Two Worlds

Our reality consists of one world that we interpret through the five senses and another one, the non-physical, which requires other means of perception.


The metaphysical world is revealed to us by way of psychic awareness (sixth sense) --intuition, feelings and inspiration. With its practice, we enjoy a fuller life experience.






Friday, April 22, 2016

Beginnings and Endings

Things of the physical world come and go. What's here now will be gone tomorrow. 

Only that of the Spirit is Eternal -- Love Kindness Gratitude

Our focus determines our measure of happiness.

Colors

Colors give us information because each one has its own energy.  

By using color therapy, we can experience shifts in how we feel, mentally and physically.

Transformation

The mythical bird, Phoenix, is said to be consumed in flames to transform itself into a renewed being. It leaves behind old ego and self-imposed limitations.

Was there a moment that transformed you?

Sojourner

We are all just passing through...




At the end of the day, we might ask ourselves if we have been compassionate and helpful to others.

The Watcher

 What is your position in the flock?
 
There is often one Sentinel Crow, perched above the others, who observes the goings on of earth and sky.

Cats as Wayshowers

Animals enhance our life with subtle messages.  

If a cat has gained our attention, there might be something we can learn in that moment. 

Perhaps we are being too much or too little of the following: mysterious, independent, clever, watchful, selective.

Power of the Sun

The SUN is the physical representation of Pure Source Energy. 


There is a microcosmic Sun Center in every living thing.  From this, all things proceed and all things return. 


The SUN represents the Circle of Eternal Fire that has no beginning and no end, but limitless transitions to other forms.

Numerology of 3

Each number is sacred and holds a particular vibration and influence in our life. 

Think of the triangle, point facing upwards. It is mankind reaching to Spirit.   The reverse position is Spirit reaching to mankind.  Unity is represented by the 6 pointed star, the double of number 3.
