GYPSY BAG

 Originally posted 8/24/09
Whether Medicine, Mojo or Gypsy Bag, a lot of us have one to carry our gemstones, lucky charms, candle, tarot cards etc. My own is just a satin drawstring gypsy bag where i carry an Arkansas crystal, a wildwoman charm my niece brought me from New Orleans and 3 red bells wildwoman loves, sacred tobacco for ceremony, bloodroot to ward off whatever might be lurking about, a $5 gold piece and other personal items. A friend's has her grandmother's wedding ring, a lucky penny, a crystal from Mt. Ida, Arkansas, a small smudge stick of white sage for smudging on the go and more that she prefers to keep private. Another friend, a Sioux medicine woman/shaman has a beautiful Native American beaded medicine bag, contents unknown. Whether your bag is mojo, medicine or gypsy the items you select magnetize together creating a sacred power you can draw on, much as your altar or home temple. Whatever we assign and endow mirrors back to us multiplied.

THANK YOU

One of the best reality management tools  is HoOponopono.  Dr. Hew Len's method requires commitment attracting those who accept total responsibility for their own experiences, relationships, anything and everything created.  All you really need to know about Ho'oponopono is this:
I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.
Dr. Len says it does not matter what order you say it and you don't even need to understand it because the Divine DOES understand it and you are talking to the Divine, creating a direct connection.The internet has countless websites so it doesn't cost anything to explore and try it out for yourself.   There's no limit as to how or what it can do, so give it a try on that crazy aunt, obnoxious neighbor,  business, health etc - the sky's the limit! Join us.

UPDATE:  Now Dr. Hew Len says just say "Thankyou" ......try it.

ALL WILL ASSIST

Image result for TCB, Taking Care of Business a la The King, Elvis of course.Many work with Thor or apply the lightening bolt TCB a la Elvis, angels, Nature Intelligence etc, to assist with issues,  aspects conditions or problems that traditional means don't fix.  Others ask for help via prayer, from learned mentors, saints or whatever their version is. What's yours?

BE GOOD TO YOURSELF

I always begin the ritual decorating The Cottage for Christmas this weekend after Thanksgiving, reviving wonderful memories growing up on the farm.  Speaking of memories, did you know that you can rewrite the past which will amend the present?   Many try to create what they wish to experience in the present and don't realize their negative memories/experiences may be blocking their desire today.  Redo, redesign and be good to yourself.  

RIGHT SOLUTION

The recent New Moon may be less than friendly with it's Scorpio aspects, illuminating/revealing hidden negative issues.  If this happened to you, remember every problem has a solution and focus attention until you find the right one.

NOTHING CAN BE DONE?

What to do when nothing can be done?  If this happens, turn it over to your angels!  They can find solutions we would think impossible.  Try it next time, and see what happens.

ENERGY OF GRATITUDE

Chris Griscom
  Chris Griscom Thanksgiving Message



Dear Soul Friends, 
Here in the U.S., we are celebrating a time of "Thanksgiving" that harkens back to the survival of the first pilgrims who came through hard times in a new land in which they were not yet in harmony with nature.  They survived mostly with the guidance and help of the Native Americans who taught them what to grow and gave them food.  Today, as then, we celebrate the abundance of food and the harvest of nature we have collected to sustain us.
In truth, this celebration calls upon us to give thanks to those friends who have steadfastly guided us through our limitations and taught us how to survive on all levels of our existence.  "Giving Thanks" is a wonderful opportunity to contemplate the gifts of friendship we perennially receive every day and to deeply honor all those--friend and foe--who play an important part in our evolution towards enlightened humans.
The best way to truly give thanks is to extend our conscious awareness to all the others who help us in one way or another in our lives and to extend to them an energy of gratitude by holding them in our hearts.
I do this by bringing them into my mind's eye and then asking what frequency of light (color) they need from me to experience my thankfulness and love for them.  Whatever color comes into my consciousness--from them--I then imagine it coming down from the cosmos as a beam of light entering through the top of my head and radiating out through my stomach or Solar Plexus to them.  I allow the flow to continue until I perceive a change such as a smile or expansion.  This is how I know that they have received my gift--back to them.  This act of giving thanks always brings me a sense of peace and connection, and I know you will feel the same.
I send to all of you my Great Love and Gratitude that we can share and protect our beautiful planet together.

REALITY IS NOW

Just when I thought things were moving forward in alignment with the New Moon in Scorpio  the lunar rays illuminated upsets, surprises, issues and complications. If this sounds familiar, look for solutions and remember reality is Now.

IT'S ALL RELATIVE

Is the New Moon in Scorpio sending inspiration your way?  Maybe relocation  is in your future, change in attitude, new job etc while others choose not to rock the boat.  No hurry/no worry,  it's all relative.

HAPPY NEW MOON IN SCORPIO

Scorpio is intimate with the natural cycles of death, rebirth and transformation. She is the Seeress, who sees beyond the veils of the known and is at one with the deep mysteries.She reminds us of our innate ability to transmute poison, symbolized by the Scorpion, into wisdom symbolized by the Snake, so we can soar high like the Eagle and gain a broader vision of our Lives. Like her fourth embodiment, the Phoenix, she reminds us of how time and time again, we rise from the ashes of own transformation.

AWAKEN THE GODDESS

There's a New Moon in Scorpio Nov 18, 2017 at 5:42 am so don't forget your Abundance Bucks requests. Since this moon phase symbolizes new beginnings/fresh starts, get creative with it and raise your vibrations. Awaken the goddess within, try something new and see how that influences  outer reality.  Play, dance and sing because you're wonderful!

LIFE LESSONS OR EXPERIENCES?

Do you believe life is about lessons or experiences?  I've noticed those that profess the former seem to be constantly having socalled lessons of the drama kind, hold grudges etc while the latter rebound, seldom taking anything personally. Remember, should we not get the point (pardon the pun) a pinprick 'experience' not handled/managed  may evolve into a swordthrust 'lesson' so beware.

MIND GAMES

It's a new day so let's make the most of it - review, release and move on!  Remember, what we focus on expands so vigilantly monitor words and thoughts to attract what you wish, not what you don't.  Don't forget, your thoughts and words may not even be your own, but software a la computer generated reality.  Also watch for anything activating emotional drama replays and deja vu all over again. Cease the mind games and stay real.

THE NEXT BEST THING

Recently a couple of projects completed so I'm up for the next best thing.  I'm aligned with Higher I, guides etc as to what that is?   There's lots of things I'd love to do, places to visit/explore etc but rely on The Universe to send what's appropriate for me.  Over the years they've surprised me with more than I'd asked for so I'm not insisting on just one thing a la follow the yellow brick road

ESCAPE HATCH

Originally published 2016

MAGIC HAPPENS?
If you wonder if  reality is a computer simulation, god's plan, fickle finger of fate, a dream etc, you may agree you can't make this stuff up!  My conclusion is the former,  because it would take a very advanced computer to navigate the twists and turns, detours, near misses, backstories, complexities, situations and circumstance of my own life.  .  .  and what about yours?   Synchronicity, deja vu, free will, six degrees of separation, karma/past lives  or magic happens, cannot account for our paths.

THE POWER REDOUX

Those that understand the power of speaking the word will monitor accordingly while the advanced  monitor their thoughts as well.  Gossip is practicing Black Magic so beware - but what about our accepted beliefs about others?  Those also are a form of Black Magic so let's wake up and manage accordingly with HoOponopono or just stop creating the sorcery!  To do any less is a denial of our creative power so honor self and life by creating better. 

GREAT IN THEORY

Reality Management 101 - great in theory but not so much in practice.  Sometimes things won't budge in spite of our efforts and good intentions so when this happens take a time-out and try again another day.  Often our intention flattens the charged particles/energy and it collapses under it's own weight. 

SUBCONSCIOUS IMPRESSIONS

“Chance or accident is not responsible for the things that happen to you, nor is predestined fate the author of your fortune or misfortune. Your subconscious impressions determine the conditions of your world. The subconscious is not selective; it is impersonal and no respecter of persons. The subconscious is not concerned with the truth or falsity of your feeling. It always accepts as true that which you feel to be true. Feeling is the assent of the subconscious to the truth of that which is declared to be true. Because of this quality of the subconscious there is nothing impossible to man. Whatever the mind of man can conceive and feel as true, the subconscious can and must objectify. Your feelings create the pattern from which your world is fashioned, and a change of feeling is a change of pattern.”
Neville Goddard, Resurrection

DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE

The Full Moon vibes may stir up a lot of busyness - business for some while others are extra creative. The Lunar rays may illuminate issues or conditions to address or perhaps even reveal solutions.  As always, "The stars impel not compel".  That said, we may still find ourself deep down the rabbit hole before we even know it!  Should that happen, remember you're dreaming and take such control as you can to return to Source.

LET THE WORLD GO BY

After a lot of activity the last month, I've retreated to The Cottage, not quite Ninja mode but kinda sorta.  I do love to snug in and let the world go by for awhile, allowing space for spirit/source to guide per my solitaire persuasion.
