“Sacred geometries are the foundations of transmitting higher frequencies of energy and awareness, from soul to soul, and across the Universe.  Though usually “unseen” from a 3D physical perspective, they are the creative and, quite literally, en-lightening structures of soul awakening, ascension, and healing.” (From this website)

I recently received an intuitive message that I should begin to work with sacred geometry to manifest my vision. I don’t know a lot about it, but I am excited to learn more. If you happen to have any information, websites, book recommendations, etc. please let me know!flower-of-life-916476_1920

For the last year, feathers have been a symbol I have looked for when I needed a sign. Once I even came upon a dumpster full of feathers and angel wings, but that is a story for another time.

Yesterday after a particularly stressful morning, I came upon a pink feather in a parking lot. It was such a message of hope, healing, and the presence of angels that I immediately felt loved and supported.

Later in the day, I was sitting at the kitchen table on my computer and heard a thud. I sat up immediately and saw a small yellow bird sitting on my deck, obviously stunned after hitting the door. While I was worried about him, I also saw that he had left two small yellow feathers. Soon after, he blinked a few times and flew away. Although I did not want any harm to come to this creature, I also thanked him for leaving me the gift of his yellow feathers.

The specific color of the feather you find also has great meaning. Here is a great website listing feather meanings.

I love doing an oracle card reading for myself when I am facing a particular issue, or even when I just want to know the energy trends surrounding me. This morning after a peaceful meditation, I pulled cards from the Angel Answers deck by Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine.

IMG_0485The cards I got were: Big, happy Changes, It’s Up to You, Success, Helpful People, Yes, and Ask for Help from Others. When I pull cards for myself, I also believe that they are world energies. The cards in my reading also apply to anyone who might be reading this blog post.

Basically, have hope, you will be successful, ask for and accept the help that comes to you because nothing big is accomplished in isolation. And remember, it’s up to you! You have free will on this journey through life. What do you want most? What is your soul calling for you to do, be, or become? You can do it!

Happy Sunday Everyone!

“I even have a superstition that has grown on me as a result of invisible hands coming all the time – namely, that if you do follow your bliss you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. When you can see that, you begin to meet people who are in your field of bliss, and they open doors to you. I say, follow your bliss and don’t be afraid, and doors will open where you didn’t know they were going to be.” (Joseph Campbell)

Recently I was reading the Journal of Poetry Therapy for my new biblio/poetry therapy program. I wanted to share an excerpt from the article “The Mundane, the Existential, and the Poetic” by Rich Furman:

“Life, for the most part, is a series of mundane tasks that each individual engages in before their ultimate death, with episodic experiences that appear to have currency and intensity. Appear in the sense that the event just is, it has no inherent meaning other than that which we derive from our own personal and cultural experience. Again, life is meaningless. One person may become depressed upon losing a job while another becomes ecstatic. The meaning that the individual ascribes to the event predicates how it will be defined.

While many would read this and wonder if the author has one leg tied to a large stone that he is ready to hurl into deep water, this realization is intensely liberating. Since life has no inherent meaning, we each have the capacity to create a sense of meaning within the moment. Since the most prevalent aspect of life is the mundane, the goal is to learn to cherish that which is mundane. Since the mundane is everywhere there is much to cherish! Frankl (1963) observed the capacity to create meaning within the context of the Nazi death camp. Small acts, mundane acts, became powerful, became important.”

While reading this, I immediately recoiled at the words “life is meaningless.” Yet, I realized as I continued reading that in fact I do believe this, though I prefer Furman’s phrasing: “inherently meaningless.” I believe that we assign importance and meaning to events in our lives, from the most “mundane” to the greatest milestones. This meaning is unique for each person. Life does seem to be a gigantic blank canvas upon which we project different creative thoughts. I also recoiled against the word “mundane,” because I have such affection for the simplicities of life, and the word “mundane,” in my opinion, has a negative connotation. I do believe that these “mundane” moments are the ones we can cherish most. I feel that strongly right now with an upcoming milestone in my life: my wedding. Although the event of the wedding is a very intensely emotional even upon which I ascribe much meaning, it is the smaller, more mundane moments in my relationship that give me the greatest joy, and which I cherish the most.

On Tuesday morning, which happened to be my birthday, I woke up with a swollen upper lip and some slight irritation around my mouth. By Wednesday I could actually see my upper lip out of the corner of my eye, and by that evening I had a spread of hives along my left leg. Fortunately, my lip has recovered, but my hives continued to worsen today. Why has this come about? Are allergies just physical reactions to different things in our food or in the air? I had to ask myself exactly what in my life I am allergic to. Was it just the ripe mango I enjoyed on Sunday night that caused this fairly intense allergic reaction, or was it something deeper?

Louise Hay, writer and expert in the field of health and wellness, says that allergic reactions occur when we feel that power has been taken away from us. This week I started teaching summer school after enjoying three weeks of uninterrupted time to read and write. My schedule changed drastically practically over night, as did my health. My birthday was also this week. While I was happy to celebrate, I also felt the weight of change. The next five years are sure to bring lots of change, much of it quite good, but change nonetheless. My usual reaction to change is to flee, and my body seems to be reacting just as strongly physically.

If you, too, experience allergies, investigate your emotional climate. What were you feeling when the first outbreak occurred? What can you do to remedy the situation? Although I do need to continue teaching summer school, and I can’t ignore the fact that another year in my life has passed, I can find peace in the simplicity of each day.

I recently received my attunement as a Reiki 1 practitioner! I found it to be an extremely relaxing, peaceful, and sacred ceremony. I grew up Catholic and never felt connected to that religion. The Reiki attunement felt more special to me than any sacrament I received in church. This felt for me, personally, like a great transformation.

I feel so thankful to be able to access Reiki energy whenever I need it. The hand positions are simple and most of them are quite discreet, so I can use them even while I am at work. I have noticed that I am quite fatigued. If anyone has had Reiki attunement, is this a common side effect? I imagine my body is detoxifying and is going through a deep, energetic change.

I’m looking forward to using it on myself and on friends and family, as well as in my hospice volunteer position (my orientation is next week)!
