gratitude wednesday 7/30

I’m grateful. Hour 45 of caffeine-free–ness. Of my caffeine-free life.

I’ve been through this before, and even though I’m still having intense headaches (from the top of my head down through my neck and shoulders) it is not as bad as it was the last time. Thank god for all the intention and power this time. My black candle. Dragon’s Blood oil and incense. Herbal tea made up for me by Rabbit. Tincture of periwinkle made for me by Joshua. And a Tarot reading every day.

I’ve done the same five-card reading each day—a horseshoe reading. Position 1: the situation. Position 2: the expected. Position 3: the unexpected. Position 4: short-term outcomes. Position 5: long-term outcomes.  Each time—each time!—the Devil card has shown up. The first two days in the long-term outcomes position. Today moved up to the unexpected position. And today followed by the Magician (short-term outcomes) and then the 10 of Swords inverted for long-term outcomes. Sheesh. Is this a major transition or what? Is this a time for me to acknowledge the inner dark side and move on to what I have long believed I couldn’t manifest?

I am grateful for sunshine (intermittent; it’s foggy here) and beautiful beaches and quiet. For allowing myself lots of sleep and rest and quiet and creating space to let go let go let go.

I am blessed. I am whole. I am complete. All is well. It is done it is done it is already done!

Mahalo nui loa for all the love and support!

I’m a barely tamed hippie, sage, seasoned, sarcastic (not all the time any more, but still). I’m a mom, a daughter, sister, a neighbor, and a friend. I’ve been on this meandering journey — like you, probably — seeking a better connection to and experience of peace, harmony, and fun in every bit of life. I’m single, quite good at it, and mostly love it. I’m here for the conversations I get to have with you, which these days center on exploring the mystery and beauty of life, work, health, aging, and creative expression.
