HAPPY YOU YEAR





Wrapping up 2014, what have I learned/experienced?



Rapid Spontaneous Events are getting more rapid and spontaneous.

"R and R" Reading and Research is on sensory overload.

Learning to Knit again, just for fun, with specialty yarns like sequins and eyelash yarns are works in progress, "knitting with cobwebs."

Picking up Paintbrushes, tools of the trade, took me to higher levels of love and gratitude.

Trying Yoga and listening to guided Meditations while practicing Tai Chi and/or Yoga combinations widened my spectrum of enjoyment and relaxation.

Treasuring Family, Friends, and Pets more than ever this year.

Mindful Eating, enjoying taste and texture went up a notch. 

Returning to a Sacred Quiet Mountain invited inner peace and deep calm.

THE VISITOR

 Evergreen

This recent no flash winter photo taken through a window from quite a distance showed grey grass in our chilly yard.  "Imagine" the grass turned neon green?


Last summer, a cat friend came to play.  She has a nearby home and her long haired gold and white coat is always perfectly groomed.  Her presence brings harmony and peace.  Our resident cats do not even hiss at Fluffy!  Dark tabby, Sasha, usually defensive and protective, sits on the porch silently while Fluffy floats by. 

* Fluffy reminds me of Gentle Phoebe, a snowy white Norwegian Forest Cat.


No matter what Season, Time, Day, Year, Eon or Light Year on Earth and Beyond:


** "Be Present...."

May All Beings Be At Peace.

                       Soft and Gentle, May Peace Come to Us All~

READY-SET-GROW!

* Inspire Creativity!


Breezing right along, looking and enjoying some me time on the Internet I came across the following blog post, Inspire Creativity.  

 What sparks your creativity?  

* This list to help jump start your creative drive is quoted from from Sue Broome, author, spiritual teacher, and Angel guidance:

Window Shop [Love It]

Eat one of your favorite foods, enjoying every bite

Watch the Clouds

Play with your pet or borrow a pet 

Learn a new craft

Daydream  [Albert Einstein is Near]

Reminisce over some favorite holiday memories

Sit and listen to sounds you hear and make up a story about one of them


Sue continues, "Not today? Relax!  Feel inspired another day."


Learning a new craft can mean taking a basic knit, crochet or woven pattern and making up your own.  I am currently trying new yarns, eyelash yarn, sequined yarn, quite unlike basic yarn that is easy to knit.  So far I have ripped out a lot of tries, but I think I have a basic feel for these along with "easier" traditional yarns.  

Take a basic recipe and improvise.  I made a soup with cucumbers in it.  Tonight I'll see how it turned out~

PINK AND BLUE I SEE YOU




Blue Lights

Hot Pink Recovery 

Everyday Miracles

Ask and Receive


 The Pink Blanket


A friend prepared for surgery.  She asked for prayers, technicolor prayers!  "Please send blue and pink light for me."

The day after out of town surgery, she was already home!   What a surprise for both of us!

 "You won't believe what happened!  I looked up and saw that beautiful blue we love!  I was enthralled, the lights overhead were not neon glaring white but stunning blue!  One of the surgeons came in and asked me if we could pray together.  Imagine!" 

"I go out.  I wake up.  I see the true blue again!  What I asked for!"

"Blue brings calming and energy in balance and Pink is the color of unconditional love."





* "Thought Transcends Matter...."


Pink and Blue:  think baby stars being born in the constellation of Orion.

JOY-FULL

What makes you joyful?  Touches your heart?  Sparks a smile, a laugh, a memory, an inspiration?

*" 'It is not joy that makes us grateful, it is gratitude that makes us joyful.' "


** Last night a written message came over the TV, I perked up when I read the word JOYFUL in very large print!  I contemplated back over my day.  When had I felt the greatest joy?


Hands Down Joy:  a painting session, brought me back in touch with my first love, painting portraits of animals.  I picked up slender long handled brushes and carefully brushed in tiny hair strokes on muzzles. Then I added a shiny highlighted look to sleek black coats.  I felt DEEP joy, gratitude, relaxation, and pride of accomplishment...SOUL DEEP.  I realized that this experience is also a meditative moment and memory timeline.  I never realized this before?  An "Ah Ha" moment is here.  I felt unseen guides' suggestions including, "Time to Quit!"

 I remember one of my artist friends told me, "There is nothing like painting, nothing even comes close...."  I smiled~


 Sunrise~Sunset a Tai Chi Moment



***  Later, I listened to a guided meditation, Miraculous Esteem, picked out at random from the Cd collection.  I chose to practice Tai Chi while listening to the spoken messages followed by mantra and quiet music time.  Great Joy and Relaxation is hear and now!  Meditation in Motion is combined with freedom, gratitude, abundance of heart, inner happiness and peace.   

Other sources of Joy Today:
Interaction with family, friends, and pets
Looking out the window and noting the changing light
Enjoyment of simple yet nutrient rich food
Restful Sleep

UNIVERSE

Windows of Light





*  Many years ago, "Words slipped easily, like gentle rain, from my pencil...I didn't question the words....I didn't think about shades of meaning.  I didn't think.  I couldn't."



                                                                Universe

                            My soul opens like a lotus flower, to the will of God

                                      I am the gentle breeze in the night,

                                        I am the art of clouds and rain, 

                                  I am the voice that whispers your name 

                                          In the silence of the storm.

                                       I am the rhythm of the ocean, 

                                  I share in the joy of rediscovering you:

                                               I am loved and safe.

                                Touch me gently:  You have created me,

                                                 I AM YOUR CHILD




Words elude me once again, thoughts stream in like rainbows.  I want to write more today, to comment, to expand.  I hear a whisper:  "ENOUGH."
