Day Three of Seven

Day Three’s image is a Harris Hawk, spied one morning as I was watching the sunrise with our beloved dogs, Daisy and Foxy.

I zoomed out as far as I could so that I didn’t scare it off with movement. Fortunately for me, I had my camera handy. You’re not surprised, are you? Haha!

Was he looking at me while I was looking at him? Maybe. Eyes like a hawk …

What Does That Mean Exactly?

At the end of my posts, I write a simple phrase – Be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’

It’s a simple reminder that we are all walking each other home. It’s about the journey and the souls we meet along the way. Nothing happens by chance. Everyone in our lives is there to be a lesson or a blessing. Some will be there briefly. Some will stay for a long time. Pay attention to the lesson or the blessing. We’re in this thing called Life together.

So what does Namaste’ mean exactly?  (Hint: it’s about love).

The Surging Epidemic

What??? Another video, you say? (Hey, it’s my blog so I get to do what I want. Hehe).

But this is important, so listen up, dear ones. In lieu of Throwback Thursday, please watch this important video (9 min. 43 sec.) It affects all human beings.

Jimmy is a smart guy. I really like what he puts out there. It resonates. Listen to what he has to say. Maybe it will inspire you, too. And if you’re so inclined, share it with those you love.

Be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’

This or Something Better

Are you wanting to manifest something in your life? Is it tangible? A thing or things? Is it a new home? A new car? More money? If it’s any of these things, write it down!!! But don’t be so specific that it limits the Universe in giving you what you want. And always add this or something better.

I’m a big fan of the Universe. It’s a vast field of potentiality. So today, I want to share with you one of my many experiences with how it bestows blessings upon all of us.

Years ago, living in southern CA, we wanted to move back to AZ, so I wrote down the kind of house I wanted to live in there. It had to have lots of light, a sweeping view of the Catalina mountains, in a nice neighborhood with fantastic neighbors, and most of all, we had to feel good living there. The kicker was that at the end of my description I added this or something better. (The Universe being the benevolent benefactor that it is, I trust in it completely to know better than me and my mere mortal thinking).

We made the move back to AZ and ended up renting a house until we could find just the right one to purchase. We found one. It didn’t match what I had written down, so I thought we’d have to settle for it. But most of all, it didn’t have the feeling I wanted. Then (drum roll, please) just about a week later, one came up that matched my description perfectly. When I walked in the front door, it took my breath away. There was the wow! sweeping view, a house full of light, and many other ‘something betters’ that I had not even written down.

The seller was asking much more than what we wanted to spend, but I knew without a doubt that if we were meant to have it, a way would show up. The ways and means materialized in such a synchronized fashion that it was truly miraculous. I’m smiling right now from ear to ear as I think about it.

But that’s not the end of this story. I also wrote down that I wanted to be a Cadillac driver (for some reason I’ve always liked them).

My Mom called one day and said, “My neighbor is selling her Cadillac. Come look at it.” I explained to Mom that we already had two cars and didn’t need a third. Resistance? She convinced us that we should just come up there and look at it. We did. We ended up buying it. So I became a Cadillac driver. That was fun!

But again, the story doesn’t end there. The lady we bought it from was a phenomenal woman, one whom we became dear friends with. Love her! She was selling this car because she was buying another Cadillac from a friend of hers. So we asked her when it came time for her to sell that one, to please give us first chance at it. She did. So …. we had not one, but two Cadillacs.

Lesson? Never, ever limit the Universe and its power to provide This or something better.

If I can do this, so can you. Write it down! And then trust the Universe to show up.

Here’s the story in a picture. The house and both Cadillacs. Grace on the left. Lady Pearl on the right. (Yes, I named them. Haha!)

Okay, I have to go now. Lots to write down 🙂

TBT – Vintage Bath Soap

During my 366 blog, this is the image I shot on 12/28/2012. I love the unique qualities of a vintage sign. I kept it on the side of my garden tub and was reminded daily of the giver … my daughter.

After contemplating doing a photo a day for 2018, I have decided against it. Once is enough for that kind of project. It was fun back then, but in some ways it drove me a little crazy. A little crazy? A lot crazy if the truth be told. LOL!

Best wishes for a fabulous 2018! Be blessed, my friends.

But Not by You

11.11.17writing

Please, please, please … write because you have something to say. Not because you want to impress the reader. Your writing will not appeal to everyone. That’s okay. It will to the ones who need it the most.

Write from your heart. Let your feelings flow. Get it all out. You can always edit later for style, grammar and punctuation.

And yes, it may have all been said before. But not by you. You are unique; one of a kind. You have a voice. There is no one else like you on the planet. Celebrate that and share it through your writing.

Who knows? Your writing may just fill up the cracks in someone’s soul. You are such a messenger!

Be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’
