    Friday Oracle Week 2

    A Happy Friday, dear friend! We made it to the weekend. To those who have to work the weekend… You have my most sincere sympathies. I’ve “been there, done that”, and it’s not always fun, I know! So, here we are. Week #2 of my new weekly oracle “feature”. This week, I’m once more using my mixed Angel Oracle deck which is comprised of the Healing With the Angels deck and the Archangel Oracle deck, both from Doreen Virtue. Since I can sometimes be a bit of a card addict (oracle and tarot), I will probably switch decks from time to time. Next week will probably be the Wisdom of Avalon deck…

    Settling In With Change and Thriving

    Not too long ago, my family and I moved from rural Missouri to the suburbs of South Carolina. To say that it was a big change, would be an understatement. From a small town to of approximately 6,000 people to an area with a concentrated populace of 100s of thousands (at least). To be honest, though I was very excited for the move, I have to admit that I was rather apprehensive as well. After all, we had moved to Missouri for the express purpose of getting away from people. Now, we’re once again in housing that – in many ways – reminds me of the time we spent in…

    It’s Friday! (7 Day Oracle)

    Good morning, my dear friend! It is Friday, and I couldn’t be happier. The week has gone quickly by, but it doesn’t make me any less happy. Fridays are awesome around here. It means that tomorrow is Saturday, and I’ll have Dh and LB all to myself! That, of course, wasn’t always the case. My love of Fridays, I mean. When I worked in retail, it was just another day, and usually one that I had to work. And when Dh was fully retired, and we stayed home together every day of the week… I guess I looked forward to the weekends then, too. LB would be home, and it also…

    The Journey Begins

    Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton Welcome to my little space here on the Internet! I’m so glad that you decided to join me for my newest adventure. Why this space? That’s a good question, really, and one that I find I need to answer for myself. Have you ever felt an urging to do something, but not entirely certain… why? Well, that’s what happened to occur with this space. Granted, I do have some idea what I desire to accomplish here. See, there’s an illness that has seemingly spread much like a pandemic throughout my known part of the world – the US –…

    Transition: Starting At the Beginning

    I just spent the past hour or so writing a new post. In a fraction of a second, I lost it. Just goes to show how unpracticed I am writing posts online and have forgotten one hard learned notion. ALWAYS copy your text before doing anything! That way, you’re able to paste it back into your document, if you happen to lose it! At the end of the post, though, I said that I’m a big believer that “everything happens for a reason”. “There are no coincidences.” Guess I need to realize that’s the case here, too, hmm? So, what was up? Well, I was simply explaining… Making excuses, really,…

    Being Kind to Ourselves

    The weather has finally turned here in the Ozarks. Autumn is finally here! And with the change in temperatures, I’ve gotten a hankering for baking. A bit about myself… I’m what you may call a “foodie”. I love food! Most of all, I love nice, long, leisurely meals spent with loved ones, engaged in wonderful conversation over good food and drink. Food is an important part of our family culture. I have learned over the years, though, if not done “properly”, it can have negative consequences on the health and shape of one’s body, which is exactly where I found myself not too long ago. Almost a month and a…

    The Purpose of Life: Becoming

    I awoke rather suddenly at 4 am this morning after having been in a deep sleep. It was then that a notion popped into my mind, upon which I proceeded to muse. Purpose. When I first consciously embarked on my own spiritual journey, I received the idea that I had some great Purpose I needed to fulfill in this lifetime. Needless to say, Ego was quite thrilled by that notion and set out to discover what it was. At the time, though, I have to admit that there was a part of me that desired to figure it out, “get it done and go”. I wasn’t happy. Not really. I…

    Meeting Change with Less Resistance

    I came across this image from Conscious Reminder this morning not long after awakening and has played about in the back of my mind ever since. In my experience, change can often be quite a challenging journey for one to traverse. Take for instance my current journey “toward a more healthy me”. You like how I put a positive spin on that? Originally, I typed “my current journey in weight loss”, but isn’t that exactly what Conscious Reminder is attempting to point out here? A journey “toward a more healthy me” focuses more on ‘building the new’, rather than ‘fighting the old’, wouldn’t you say? There are some who might…

    Autumn Blessings: Reflection and Transformation

    Autumn is upon us… Well, apparently, Missouri is a little late in getting the memo. The temps have remained consistent with summer. It is supposed to cool back down tomorrow, though, and become more “autumny”. (Thank all that is good!) Over the years, Autumn has become a time of great reflection and transformation for me, and this year is certainly no different. I have known since the beginning that 2017 is a ‘1 year’. A year of beginnings. It has not reflected that energy to me. That is, until recently. Guess it’s a late-blooming energy in my life. Or maybe I’m just the late bloomer. lol Either way, it is…

    Self Care: Pressing the ESC Button

    Time for a Bit of Self Care! Today is a challenging day. On many levels. That is not to say it’s a ‘bad’ day. I find I’m just feeling a bit ‘off kilter’, low energy and thoroughly unmotivated. I’m sure you’ve had days like that yourself, haven’t you? ‘And you’re here to give us the warm fuzzies, to help up find the joy and awesomeness of life? Lady, you’re failing miserably at the moment.’ I know. I know. Just because a person ‘wakes up’, though, and begins living life in a more ‘conscious’ manner doesn’t mean life is suddenly and consistently filled with rainbows and roses. I say this because I don’t…
