Starting on the New Journey

With any journey there are multiple paths to choose from. Ahead of us lie those paths as they do every new year. I start this way every year, and every year I forget that I am in charge. I allow others, or circumstances, or things to get in the way of the journey, so I never even finish the path, starting at the beginning having not accomplished anything. Today’s card was “I am the dreamer of my dream”. Never did anything fit my morning conversations, my own thoughts and feelings, and the card reminded me that I need to make … Continue reading Starting on the New Journey

End of the Year Reflections…

I have this amazing friend, her name is Lady Lilyth. She is always introducing me to new ideas, deities, and things. She recently introduced me to The Universe Has Your Back, a deck of intention cards from Hay House (Find Gabrielle Bernstein’s stuff here). Well…they are more like reminder cards, but she had this great idea of turning each card that she drew into an intention. I loved it so much, that as I start this deck, I am going to borrow her idea. As I go through the last weekend in 2018 I am realizing that I didn’t follow … Continue reading End of the Year Reflections…

Tarot, Tarot and a little more Tarot!

So, I did it. I bit the bullet and joined the Tarot Reader’s Academy Summer School. That’s 13 Tarot courses on a variety of topics starting Solstice (June 21). I am very excited to begin this next advancement in my Tarot journey and learn from a large variety of well known experts and practitioners in the field. The other thing that excites me about all of this is the sharing with you that I will get to do. I am also going to start a 78 day tarot study and place it here. This is something else I am excited … Continue reading Tarot, Tarot and a little more Tarot!

Monday is as Monday does!

Yep, we have arrived at Monday.  I have discovered that Mondays come with their own unique set of issues.  One that I discovered today, language.  My seniors were finishing up their presentations.  Friday they had amazing presentations, great speech patterns, despite being nervous, and no language slippage.  Today…well let’s just say I had some great presentations that received poor marks due to poor speaking, inappropriate language, and slang!!!! Yes, slang in a formal presentation and project.  *sigh* I know that the world is different for those who are younger, I teach high school and have for many, many years.  However, … Continue reading Monday is as Monday does!

Meditation

We all know we should, even if it isn’t part of a religious practice, it is now common knowledge that meditation, or purposeful breathing, is a practice every person should put into their day for at least 15 minutes. The Mayo Clinic says “The emotional benefits of meditation can include: Gaining a new perspective on stressful situations Building skills to manage your stress Increasing self-awareness Focusing on the present Reducing negative emotions Increasing imagination and creativity Increasing patience and tolerance”. (https://www.mayoclinic.org/tests-procedures/meditation/in-depth/meditation/art-20045858) Meditation is a simple practice in its purpose.  It simply helps us keep grounded and do a check in with … Continue reading Meditation

Weekend Work

While binge watching Grimm on Amazon and Playoff Football on network TV (with antennae) I managed to get 90% of my kitchen re-organized and cleaned. The coffee mugs and spices cupboard are left to organize and the stove top is left to clean. Anyone who knows me is aware of what a Herculean task this was. My oldest step-son came out of his cave for sustenance, blinked and said ” we have counter space, everywhere”. I responded “lets try to keep it that way” to which of course I received a blank stare back. I also made super yummy homemade … Continue reading Weekend Work

Feeling Successful – Falsely

Today was a great day!  I set out to do 6 things on my list and I got them all done!  I am a success! Yes! I’m Great! Wouldn’t that be an awesome thing to say and think and feel.  Well for me it is true.  I did get everything done today that I set out to do, including going to my tattoo appointment alone, something I hadn’t done before.  I am having my entire back and butt covered with a personal image the artist plucked from my mind.  I hate pain and this is my first tattoo, so usually … Continue reading Feeling Successful – Falsely
