Blessings Abound

When to say yes and when to say no, that is the question. I’m getting better at setting boundaries with people.  If I’m tired and someone is visiting or calling, I tell him or her that I’m tired and they (or I, as the case may be) need to go.  If I don’t have the…

Many years ago I was taught about the significance of the Four Directions.  Many indigenous tribes, prior to the beginning of a ceremony, honor the directions.  For some tribes it is four directions which are honored, for others it includes also the Earth and Sky, and for at least one tribe there are seven sacred…

Recently I’ve been noticing many deer wandering by my mountainside home.   They are abundant here and very tame.  Because hunting is not allowed due to the nearby human population, and because the cars generally move relatively slowly (due partly to the abundance of cervine animals here), there is a lack of fear in these animals. …

As I was taking my morning walk, my thought for the day was:  How can I be a blessing to the world and the people around me?  Can I, through my presence alone, be a blessing? I began saying the words: “With every breath, I breathe in peace.  With every step I send out love.” …

Years ago when I was living alone and doing hospice work in New Mexico, I went to my meditation room to do a shamanic journey.  For those unfamiliar with the term, one listens to a monotonous drumbeat (or other sound) which then sends one into a mild trance during which one can “travel to other…

This morning I was feeling sub-par on several levels.  I pulled an angel card (as I often do when I need a clear message from beyond this physical world) and received the message: “Ask.”  In other words, I should ask for what I need.  They can’t help me if I don’t ask first. I checked…

I awoke this morning to a text from my sister-in-law.  Apparently  my father didn’t recognize her this morning. Dad has known and loved Colette for about thirty years and she comes to my parents’ home regularly to manage their care.  (She’s an RN, very smart, and much more organized than the rest of us.)  This…

My laptop stopped working on Friday.  What a blessing it has been to be offline!  Being offline with technology has enabled me to be more online with LIFE! Here are some of the things I have done since Friday: Caught up on my sleep. Cleaned. Did some dreamwork. Meditated more. Cooked some healthy meals. Did…

I am tired today.  When I looked back over my calendar, I’m a bit aghast at all I’ve been doing.  For two solid weeks, I was doing too much – every single day.  Most days in and of themselves were fairly manageable, but fourteen consecutive days of doing too much have wreaked a bit of…

Deer.  I know there are many people out there who have come to think of deer as a nuisance.  They complain that there are too many of them.  They complain that they eat their gardens, their flowers, their trees.  I don’t care; I still love them.  It’s certainly not their fault that there are so…
