Daily reminder

“If the last year has been hopelessly bad, the New Year must be hopefully good. Remember, no matter what our trials have been, or how discouraged we are, if we make a continued effort to be better and to succeed we will find that, being made in the image of God, we are endowed with unlimited power. We are much stronger than our worst trials, no matter what they may be.”

Window of direct creation

My beautiful friend (and Reiki Angel), Lotus Love made me aware of this when I saw her recently. Currently, all of the planets in our solar system are in direct motion– from 12/26/11 until 1/23/12. It’s a rare occurence, and Lotus has made a video that spells it out beautifully… so I’ll let her do the talking.

Check out her video to learn more about the unique potential of this time. ♥

Remember when I was, like, ‘KALE’!

Sooo… remember when I was all like… Kale!! Yeah, Kale is king! Wahoowa!!

It could have alternately been titled, “How to get your family to eat a bunch of kale before dinner.” Seriously, the photo above is the only one I snapped before my 3-year-old & his papa ate an entire bunch of kale- before I had finished dinner.

I was shocked… like potato chips down the hatch… a family of three ate a bunch of kale before dinner. Please re-create this experiment because I’m still not certain it isn’t a freak occurence.

Kale chips, y’all. Wave of the future.

For the new year… for my love…

So… I awoke in the middle of the night, fearing Josh didn’t set his alarm, and also hoping he didn’t. I stayed awake for an hour+… trying to prepare myself (re-adjust mentally) for the condition of being apart.

This one’s for my BFF…

I miss you already.

Daily reminder

“…Many years ago I moved into a derelict house. The back door was nailed shut and had not been opened for fifteen years; once pried open it revealed a six-foot wall of seemingly impenetrable blackberry bushes, vines, and crabgrass. I wanted a garden. For many months I looked in despair through the window of the back door. The task seemed too large and too difficult. Then I decided upon a strategy that my mind could grasp. I would clear a four-foot patch of garden. The backyard was sixty-five feet long! As I would begin to dig and root, cutting and pulling my tiny patch, I resolved that I would focus my attention only on the four-foot patch. I would not even look at the other sixty-one feet of garden left to clear. Within minutes of beginning I would become completely absorbed in the insects, the tiny plants uncovered, and the pleasure of digging my hands into the brown earth. Each four-foot brown patch took about three hours because the crabgrass had to be dug out completely and the earth was rock hard. But three hours a week was an easily manageable commitment. When I was finished with the patch, I would step back and admire my good work, never allowing myself to consider the chaotic mess left remaining. How wonderful it looked! Each four-foot path was a unique wonder. Pathways buried two feet under emerged. A lawn mower, enveloped by grass (proof of the law of karma), was discovered. Not only was the task challenging, it became an adventure, and I eagerly anticipated what I might find each week. Within a year I had a beautiful lawn, an herb garden, and a patch of flowers to enjoy. But, more important, I enjoyed the process of transforming an inhospitable patch of ground into an urban paradise.”

2012! What’s for break-fast??

Dear Lord.

Well, ummmm…. Happy New Year! Happy Solstice! Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukkah! Happy Kwanzaa! Merry Birthday! Merry Grinchmas! Merry Un-birthday, etc. In other words, end radio silence. Back to life, back to reality.

And… here we are. Every so often, I need a ‘technology fast’. What can I say? I’m sensitive. And maybe a little bit old-fashioned. I harken back to the pre-digital days- when cell phones weighed more than chihuahuas and if you updated anyone regularly on your status, you probably did it in person. Reality TV? Uhh… like, ‘Unsolved Mysteries’?? I really loved that show. I watched it every Wednesday night… maybe because every now and then there were segments about yetis and extra-terrestrials and stuff. Maybe.

My point is, I get overwhelmed with all of this ‘virtual’ connectedness from time to time. When I created this site, I sought out channels of inspiration that I could pass along to… interested parties… anyone who would listen pretty much. Or not. I guess I wouldn’t have changed much at all if I knew no one was listening at all. I’m just one little girl shining her light the best she can. I aim to be. I created this forum for that reason.

And then… whoa!!! Ask and you shall receive. I was inundated every day with so much guidance. So much information. I was stunned. Totally like… ‘Wow! This is so easy! Finding inspiration… it’s like the job does itself.’ It really did, and I was just the messenger. Imagine me a divine fax machine shooting out memos to y’all- like… L O V E. That is all.

I L O V E it. And still, I’m feeling ‘overwhelmed’?? I need a technology fast? A general hibernation? For Christmas and New Year’s? Yes. Especially. 2011 was such an epic year. So much change. Ready or not. How could it not? I have a small child. He grows and changes from day to day. Like… ‘did you get taller overnight??’ In fact, I would say, he began the year as a baby and finished it as a boy.

At the beginning of 2011, I set intentions for 1.1 through 7.1. I was looking back through those as I set my intentions for the new year. Two things were clear… 1) I knew that 2011 was the year for finally completing my yoga teaching certification. 2) I also knew that 2011 was the year that my boy would get another year older. And he did. When I reflect on last year, I see my little man moving forward with gold stars all the way. Like… potty-trained himself. Became BFFs with his first actual babysitter. Asked to start school. He’s a gift.

When we found the right school for him, I was told he could begin on 12.1 or 1.1. And I clung to my baby like a big ol’ baby. Maxim has been my full-time “job” since I was 7-months pregnant. I am so blessed. It’s the greatest job I will ever have. Hand to heart. I thank God for it. I also thank God for the intervention 18 months ago to remind me that YOGA is the answer, no matter what the question is. Not just a reminder- a push. It all came together beautifully. I am starting this new phase exactly where I need to be. But still…

Maxim is starting school on Thursday. He’s totally ready for it. I’m still working on it.

And on top of that, my BFFL- my partner in crime, my partner in…basically everything- he got a job in 2011 that marked another huge transition. We had a magical life for years and years. We were together… always. Masters of the Universe. Like kids.

So, ‘that’ guy, he took time off for the end of the year. Hari Hari. Every day for nearly two weeks, I got to hang up the phone and connect face-to-face. With real people! My favorite ones!

Family hibernation. And now…

Back to life. Back to reality.

Love to all.
