The Power of Change

"It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power." Alan Cohen

Blog Your Blessings Sunday

I will be attending an event today which is the result of a dream for a beloved friend. There will be many people in attendance for this event, and I will just be a part of the crowd. The work involved in bringing this amazing manifestation into existence has been arduous for my friend, and I am blessed to witness and participate. I am overjoyed for her completion and victory.

Enjoying, contributing, and witnessing to the blessings of others adds to the blessings coming to ourselves. When we free ourselves from selfishness, envy, anger, self-pity, and other negative emotions, we then are free to ignite miracles and blessings in our own lives. Unity consciousness is the key.

"There are three words that convey the secret of the art of living, the secret of all success and happiness:

One With Life. Being one with life is being one with Now [or, the present moment, or Presence]. You then realize that you don't live your life, but life lives you. Life is the dancer, and you are the dance." Eckhart Tolle

I have taken on the long overdue task of scanning-in all of my old travel photos through the last century. Well, not exactly a century, but it sure feels like it as it takes a long time to scan. My goal is to scan in at least 100 a day. I have a Slide account now,and I plan to put together slide shows for personal photos and my travel photos.

Since I've been a photo bug and a world traveler for many years, I have thousands and thousands of photos. Most of these photos were taken before I went digital, and thus, I am scanning them in. As I'm doing so, my heart has really been triggered by all the great memories of wondrous people, places, and opportunities I've had.

Here's a little astro information which is pertinent to this endeavour: Jupiter is squaring Uranus right now. Uranus represents the computer, internet and technology while Jupiter symbolizes travel, higher learning and publishing amongst other symbolisms. Jupiter is transiting through my 9th house of travel to Uranus in my first house. Thus, I will be sharing most of these photos via the net. Amazing isn't it how astrology works!

The photos I share with you today was taken at a holy ceremony in Rishikesh, India on a Full Moon night. The offerings and prayers are put on tiny boats made from banana leaves and floated out with candles on the Ganges River. It's an amazing, beautiful ceremony watching all these tiny little boats floating and twinkling down the Great Mother River of India and one that nourished me as a writer of the awakened heart.

As We Awaken To New Truths

Here's an interesting link about the moon: Enigmas on the Moon

"We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations." Anais Nin

The Big Guys Are Coming Together

Photo" Charles Pfeil

I have been feeling the upcoming Jupiter square Uranus aspect. It will be exact next Monday, but it's so close now, I am jumping out of my skin. What am I feeling? Depending upon my mood, either restlessness, elation, claustrophobia, dread, expectation of 'something', and MANY insights about people and myself. I laid in bed last night taking inventory of my life, and I saw MORE of the Big Picture than I had in a long time. I also 'got' on a deep level the resolutions to many of my personality challenges which was great info for which I am very grateful!

As some of my fellow BYB Sunday kin are moving into Monday in their part of the world, I'm usually the LAST one to get my post up since I live in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. My partner woke me at 6 AM so we could get a running start on our busy day. As usual we began our day with a cup of coffee and a jacuzzi on our back deck surrounded by greenery and very private. We have enjoyed this top-of-the-line large jacuzzi for many years (replaced several years ago by the latest model), and we keep our spa in top condition. Instead of chlorine, we use a product called "Le Naturel Spa" by Carefree Spa which advertises it has no chemicals, no odor, no irritation and no foam. This product is non-toxic and environmentally friendly too. What I like about Natural Spa is no testing is required which makes it a way easier product to use than chlorine which always requires tests! So every time we hop into our jacuzzi, we feel we aren't harming our body or the environment--WHAT A BLESSING! This is my first blessing to write about, and now...

Coffee. I am somewhat of a purist. I don't allow plastic to come near my coffee-making process, and thus I use a stainless steel French Press made by Starbucks. I prefer fresh-ground, non-sprayed, organic coffee made with pure water. Instead of cream loaded with toxic chemicals, we use natural almond milk (found in health food stores in boxes) which is alkaline and balances (somewhat) the acidity of coffee. WHAT A BLESSING to have delicious, good quality, easily and well-prepared coffee.

When I sit down in front of my computer, I am well-protected from harmful radiation through any number of means. I always wear my Tesla Philip Stein watch, a wonderful watch also favored by Oprah, Madonna, and quite a few other celebrities. It has a dual time face on it which is great for when you travel, and I wear the one with the rubber/plastic band because it's submersible as I'm in and out of water so much. Hanging from a chain are protective talismans and shields for the same purpose and others. WHAT A BLESSING to have discovered these great products which assist me.

My bath robe is pure 100 percent cotton. The sky outside is blue, the temperature is 62 degrees Fahrenhite, and the day will warm up to the 70's. I will be barefoot most of the day, and I will jump into sparkling blue ocean water soon with good friends as we laugh and play. These are just a few of the many, many blessings I share with you today. Have yourself a Blessed Sunday too!

Tips on Manifesting

Photo: Charles Pfeil

"When you talk about what you want and why you want it, there's usually less resistance within you than when you talk about what you want and how you're going to get it. When you pose questions you don't have answers for, like how, where, when, who, it sets up a contradictory vibration that slows everything down."

Excerpted from an Abraham workshop in San Antonio, TX on Saturday, January 29th, 2005

Happy First Full Moon of 2007

Photo: Charles Pfeil

How is this Full Moon impacting you? I have read lots of stories online about people hearing weird tones in their ears and that pets are acting very edgy and troubled. Many are expecting an earthquake or 'something'. Maybe because it's the Capricorn/Cancer energies, people and animals are feeling the need to be comforted and safe.

"If we don't forgive ourselves for our mistakes, and others for the wounds they have inflicted upon us, we end up crippled with guilt. And the soul
cannot grow under a blanket of guilt, because guilt is isolating, while growth
is a gradual process of reconnection to ourselves, to other people, and to a
larger whole." Joan Borysenko

Living Your Way

Photo: Flickr

"I would like to beg you dear Sir, as well as I can, to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don't search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer." Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

Blog Your Blessings Sunday

Photo: terragalleria

I am grateful I survived 2006 for my first Blog Your Blessings Sunday of 2007! 2006 was a Year of Challenges, but each stretching on my part to meet each of these challenges was met with success. It has been said that we're only given as much as we can handle, and at least for 2006, this homily seems to have been the case.

I am grateful I was able to learn about blogging and develop my skills and knowledge in this arena. I learned through trial and error, many mistakes, and through GRACE by bringing along someone to help me when I couldn't get past an obstacle such as the time one of my blogs was locked up for no reason but Blogger suspected it of being a spam blog. I thank amazing Luna for her skill in surmounting that frustrating obstacle. With her ingenuity and skill, she maneuvered me a new blog until finally someone responded to my many pleas--and by the time they responded, I was already good to go with a duplicate blog thanks to Luna. I find it rather amusing that this Moon/Astrology blog should have someone with this name 'Luna' working with it. Luna also helped me move the blog of one of the other BYB's group who through some weird freak thing had managed to get his blog name situated right next to the name of this blog at the very top. The blogger was innocent, and it was just one of those glitches. I didn't know how to move it to where it belonged because I couldn't even locate it in the template. I was baffled, and then Luna responded to my "Help!" emails!

I am grateful for so many people in my life that my list would be very long, for it is others who are the angels in human form which so bless my life!
