Not really but the colours appealed to me. I did however resist bringing it home. I have been busy for weeks now cleaning up, doing a major spring cleaning. So much to be done, true I didn’t need to do it right away, but, type AAA that I am, once I know something has to be done. I make it happen. In a way, I got on my own carpet and worked “magic”.. I revved up the old broom and pulled into drive.
Day 9 PL Calendar – Your surroundings are a reflection of YOU.
I believe that to be true. For over a year now, I have been unable to focus on my surroundings, it was no longer a “comfortable” ambiance.
Day 10 PL Calendar – Everyone has their own unique Personality
I have been told “not to do anything major for the next while because, whether I realize it or not, I am going through a “phase of adjustment” So…………..little by little I have been cleaning out… removing “illness” “pain” and “discomfort” Sweeping, cleaning, washing, and making changes, that enhance the “home” ensuring that the “balance” and harmonizing of “energies” comes alive again, and grows with each passing day. A home is where the “heart” is. Always, forever and always.
The next few days will be busy, on Monday the 11th. at 10.am. we will have the Ancestors’ Day ceremony and special prayer and memorial for Brian. Where-ever you are, at 10 a.m. Eastern Standard Time if you are able to, join us in prayer. What a positive VIBE it will be. =^_^=
Blessings dear friends… may the Universe shine down loving rays to warm your days and sprinkle night dreams with enriched star dust.
The last few nights I have had the strangest dreams.. Well .. really if I think about it, they are not all that strange, the themes in most of my dreams are multi-coloured and always, I seem to be drifting from one “act” to another…usually I’m in the same locations, but the back drops are different. Players change in appearances but in the long and short of it all, they bear similar personalities to the actors I’ve interacted with in the past.
I found this picture in my files, and thought it appropriate for this post. The colours are cheerful, however there is something about the picture that although I like various aspects of it.. For me, the total doesn’t really pull together properly. And that, dear reader, is what I am “feeling” this morning. My dream, my recollection, the moment, etc. is OK, but there is a BUT.
Ever happen to you, can you relate. It is Tuesday after all, not Thursdays when I usually like to participate in Norm’s Thursday doors. link to Thursday Doors
What else to do but go forward with the day and see what transpires. Exciting eh~!
PL Precept # 18 Each moment is a Turning Point
Someone is sleeping in my bed. Someone thinks it is her bed, and is not shy in making her thoughts known.
Yes her legs are extended and she is pushing at me to move over. our little whippet knows her mind. No I did not give in to her, sweet as she is… I’m the leader of the pack. =^_^=
PL calendar day 29 Be Cheerful and Easygoing
Everything has a way of turning out alright in the end. Relax and always try to think positively.
Another picture from Norway. Can you see the face… I see two … how about you?
A friend took this picture in Norway recently, I asked for permission to use it. When I saw it, I felt that it mirrored my very BEing.
The reflection of the clouds in the water, the distant shore, the elevation, shadows, and quiet that presented itself to me, was so hauntingly beautiful.
I felt blanketed by a calm that caressed and descended into every pore of my existence. This moment of perfection, the harmonizing of captured beauty, visual expression with receptive emotion, translated to a joyous moment with the Universe.
The recognition of a spiritual force, a moment when eternity unfolds, then simply etches the “forever” in your open “heart” then, in the twinkling of an eye, the moment is gone… but always the memory will linger on.
How are you doing, friends, ask… I’m doing fine thank you… My life is enriched by all the blessings I am so fortunate to have found in YOU. My thank YOU to each and every one of you, who have let me know you care, with your caring, my loss is easier to bare, I appreciate each and everyone of you….
PL Precept # 11 Always be with God
The 11th of every month, in PL, we celebrate and give thanks to our ancestors, parents and those who supported us throughout our lives.
When the road ahead looks dark, we have to believe and have faith, that if it is the road ahead of us, and one we are meant to take, that it will be welcoming.
There is always light. God is always with us.
PL Precept #11 Always be with God
Being on the receiving end of two sets of eyes patiently waiting, determined not to let me take a bite without my knowing they are watching, is cute. And for me it is a visual lesson in patience.
Where some dogs have been known to beg, these two don’t. They just sit and watch me. I am sure every morsel of food is counted (in a canine way).. do the chopsticks go to my mouth, or is the piece being redirected to a napkin, that “just could” be their reward for being so patient.
There is a shrimp dish that is cooked with the whole shrimp, that has been lightly battered. This dish they are particularly aware of, they know I will share the heads and tails with them. Until I actually say their names, they will just sit patiently knowing that they will be rewarded.
Other times when I am busy enjoying every little tid bit, I am fascinated to see that my usual dinner mates, have no interest at all, and have curled up to nap. They instinctively know, that there will be no sharing.
Do we, pay as much attention to those around us, are we aware of their habits, the different ways they speak or do things, are we flexible in our ability to adjust to the energy around us easily? Are we considerate of others? Is it our natural response to the daily encounters that pop us during our day. Can we put away our “ego” when it is perhaps getting in the way of a sincere exchange.
Sometimes what we say and what we are thinking are not in sync. This leads to misunderstandings and hurt feelings.
Do you attract, happy or unhappy people in your sphere? Questions, a lot of questions, I know, but beginning the day with a short meditation/reflection…. is always a positive start to the day.
