I am in bed sick so I’m just leaving off the link. Sorry. Next time I’ll do better!
Well my goodness…Life at my house is getting interesting these days. I wrote a while ago about Bizzy’s return but I have even more interesting news. I found the most interesting foot prints in the snow yesterday. I did not recognize the tiny little prints so I had to look them up. Now I know who is eating dinner along with Bizzy. I also have a red squirrel by the name of Scampy who has been with me during the summer months for quite a few years now. Apparently he has come for food as well and it is his foot prints I saw in the snow. I do love my four legged furry friends and I hope I can make their survival this winter just a wee bit easier in the frigid cold. Now Scampy I can see, as he often races across my porch railing and teases the cats in the window. He is such a character. I thank Creator for sending these friends my way. May we both help each other get through the long winter months!
Love to all…
Just to let you all know, Bizzy is back!!! Yep, I saw the foot prints in the snow so I put out his box again with his food inside and sure enough, it was GONE this morning! So glad to have him back again. It still boggles my mind that a wild rabbit would come up on the porch every night to eat. So glad he does. I’ve only seen him once but the foot prints he leaves behind tell the story! So merry Christmas to Bizzy and to me! Best present I could ever have.
Contemptuous…Not a word I use often but it seems to describe quite accurately a certain faction of disgruntled people residing in the United States and elsewhere. So what is the actual definition of the word contemptuous? I listen to the words that come out of the mouths of the people who are resisting President Trump and it sickens me. They are the epitome of the word contemptuous in every sense. I have been around on this planet for quite some time and NEVER in my entire life have I witnessed such contempt and disdain. It really is quite shocking and I like many I know, find it draining and depleting and extremely discouraging to think this is where humanity has ventured to. Honestly it is embarrassing and I don’t believe I am alone in feeling this way.
Regardless of what side of the fence you sit on, there is NO excuse to publicly display contempt for someone everyday, all day and in such a vile way. We used to be a country that respected each other, especially our leaders and it was unheard of to do what we see taking place today. A total disregard for respect in every sense of the word. People are going out of their way to hurt others and even destroy their lives. This is completely unacceptable! The picture I chose today for this post says it all in one short quote. It is time we begin to remember who and what we stand for. Go forth and spend your day improving others lives and bringing them joy, it’s why we are here.
Blessings to all…
Well, I’m not sure about posting this latest post, I’m having reservations at the same time a voice is saying “Do it!” I’ll at least write it out, whether I post it or not we shall see. I found myself in a situation the other day that I found very disturbing but I wasn’t certain why and so I set about searching within for an answer. I don’t like to hold onto things that keep bothering me. So where do I even begin? This is very personal for me to expose but I feel I must. It relates so deeply to what is going on in the world right now and not in a good way.
Back in 2008 I lost a great deal of my retirement money because of the corrupt financial disaster that turned everyone upside down. It severely shortened the coverage of my so-called golden years. Yeah. So here I sit today with no money and having to depend upon Social Security and a reverse mortgage for survival. To pour salt in my wound I have been unable to work for years because of a serious social anxiety disorder. I stay pretty close to home. I tried to get disability but because I tried a couple of times to work for as long as I could in my early years on earth, but ended up having to stop, I cannot qualify. To make matters worse because I couldn’t work I had no points gathered in work hours to collect regular Social security. Because I was over 65 I was too old for disability so the best they could do was give me SSI. Supplemental Income. I’d take anything! Now if I had suddenly lost both legs I bet it would be a different story. Still in this day and age our heads are not treated as part of our body and accepted for what they are. How pathetic. I don’t grieve for myself, I grieve for humanity.
Well I couldn’t begin to even pay all my bills with what I received so I had to take out a reverse mortgage to make ends meet. During the times I would have the reverse mortgage money in my account I went over their $2000.00 allowed income limit not realizing I was doing wrong. They let it slide for close to eight months before they informed me that what I was doing was wrong and demanded their money back for the months I was over the limit and they sent me my checks. What? This rule is designed to keep the poor poor and unable to rise up out of the hole they are in. A reverse mortgage is a loan and a loan is NOT income so I thought all was well. I appealed and almost a year and a half later they finally tell me I lost my appeals case and must pay them back by their taking money out of my check every month until it is paid off. I was slammed into massive depression but I wasn’t really sure why. What had me so twisted up inside?
Is this where humanity is at now? We kick the dog when it is down and chained? How do we demand money from someone who doesn’t have any and can’t work to get any? Why have we not evolved further along to where we reach out to others and give them a loving hand up rather than punishing them for having nothing and keep pushing them down? I am saddened at where humanity finds itself right now. My God we are SO much better than this. I find the political attacks on people today so vile they almost hurt me physically, the constant, mindless drumbeat for revenge is enough to make you sick! I feel deep sorrow and frustration for where we find ourselves now as we face the crossroads. Are we even awake enough to make rational decisions about where our life is going?
The main stream media is not telling the truth about what is taking place around the world. The riots in France are not about gas prices or taxes. The people have had enough of global elitism and they refuse to take it anymore. It’s in Belgium and the Netherlands as well as other countries. Just wait for Brexit to set off Britain and we are not immune from riots here at home. There is a great deal of anger and unrest boiling over. These are highly charged, toxic times and we need to see the bigger picture of what lies ahead for us if we continue on the way we are. The Universe is patiently waiting for us to awaken and create a new and better world. It’s time and the pressure is on. Which crossroad are we going to take?
Unfortunately it took me going from living a comfortable life to living on nothing to fully understand the disconnect between those who have it all and those that have nothing. The discrepancy is huge and yet we barely take notice if it’s not part of our personal world. It’s time to make everybody part of our world, we are all equal and it’s time our hearts recognized this. I can’t change my situation much which gives me great unrest at times, but I can try to change humanity for the better. Let me hold up the mirror for all those to finally see the truth. I think people are waking up now and all I can do is hope they see how we are being led far astray down a path of deceit from where we are meant to be going. It is time to throw open the doors to our hearts and let love flood out into the world with acceptance for all.
Blessings to all,
Turning the Stuck Life
into Something Marvelous
by Mark Borax
We’re approaching the end of a year I predicted to usher in issues of power, issues of how we use time, and issues of serving and being served. (Attend our live broadcast on Dec 18)
As a Dog year (the animal that most loves to serve) we still have a couple of months (since the Oriental year doesn’t end on December 31) to get clear about the things we do that serve, the things that don’t serve, and what serves us.
Clarifying the issue of service leads to right livelihood, something that’s been trying to emerge in society since the 1960s Revolution in Consciousness taught us that we’re here to follow our own inner truth rather than be cogs in the Machine.
As 2018, the first of three years of Saturn in Capricorn draws to a close, power, this year, has been rollicking back and forth from obsolete, twisted patriarchal abuses, to enlightened new ways of claiming and sharing power for both men and women. Any ideas and communications that bring the genders into deeper truth with themselves and each other are very crucial and therapeutic at this time of great unrest and volatility in collective consciousness.
Use of power often breaks down to how we handle time, because most people live their lives enslaved to a system of time that drains the imagination and lames creative thought. When we break away from this mechanical, corporatized idea of time, we enter sacred time, a way of being that is similar to falling in love or being next to someone you love who’s dying, or attending a home birth ~ where time bends and stretches, elongates and compresses in vivid ways that can be felt by more than just one person, as if those events stretch and fold curtains of time out of the normal way time is perceived.
As Saturn continues its tour of Capricorn during the next two years there is much power available to you if you learn to unplug from machinelike Corporate Time and enter Sacred Time. Play with it and see how it works in your own life. Forget the fact that you’re supposedly X years old, or have too many obligations in too little time, because those ideas have been drummed into your head from mass consciousness and may be not at all like the way your own authentic nature gets to work and play with Time.
Throughout December the planets align in a pattern that fills two-thirds of the sky, leaving one-third open. This is known as a Catalyst because its main feature is to catalyze the kind of progressive change that’s been building underground, seeking one final ingredient to catalyze social transformation. Some person or idea may catalyze your own transformation this month, or you could end up being the ingredient that catalyzes someone else’s.
Of the elements Fire, Earth, Air and Water, most of the planets are in Water all month, accentuating the deep flow of soul and feeling. When Water is strong emotions run high, but the conduit to your inner nature is strong. A deep restlessness is a good sign that your waters of the soul are hungry for change. Your feelings may know something your ego-mind keeps ignoring, so pay attention to the way you feel, especially down deep.
If you play with the idea of trading enslavement to the clock for Sacred Time, meta-time, trans-time, the power of your inner nature and creative imagination will be released and you will tap an end-of-the-year flow that the month of Sagittarius brings which can be so sweet for turning the stuck life into something marvelous.

I just wanted to take a few minutes to speak to everybody about what comes next in this journey we are on. While we have been busy trying to hold on as we careen around corners and plunge downhill then up on this roller coaster ride as well as healing ourselves within, there is far more to what is going on than most are aware of or are talking about. The time is upon us for major change and we need to be ready for it when it slams into us in the immediate future. This is that moment we have been waiting on since 2012. The change has already begun but we are so distracted by the ranting media, many are oblivious to what is taking place in the world. Change and freedom or at least the demand for it, has become a world-wide phenomenon. France, Belgium, Germany, the E.U. are on fire with riots and unrest. Of course main stream media will tell you it’s all about gas taxes as they do not want everybody to know that the world is fed up with elitism and are willing to take their fight for change to the streets. That is what the unrest is REALLY all about, but you won’t be told.
It is happening here in the U.S. as well only you will not hear about anything on the nightly news. Just know it is and change is erupting everyday on multiple fronts. As with any change, it can come at a very high price. There is always unrest wherever you find change occurring. People tend to panic when their routine is broken and their reality is threatened, they want to cling to what was instead of embracing what can be. Fear is the driving force behind the unrest we often see and fear is born out of NOT knowing the truth or having the full picture of what is going on. The unknown always creates fear, but we are only ignorant to reality if we allow ourselves to be. It is up to us to research for the truth and knowledge and share what we find. This is how we prepare to survive the storm together.
I think we will witness many changes soon and the chaos it often brings. If we know it’s coming, if we research why so we can understand our situation more clearly, then we have a strong foundation upon which to stand and we have less fear of it. If we are thrown into change unknowingly and we have no true knowledge, then as we panic out of fear, we listen to the voice of our so-called media for answers, but we will get only lies. To know the truth one MUST seek it out in alternative ways. It’s there for the taking if we just choose to enlighten ourselves and make an effort to find it. So know the road ahead in the coming weeks may get bumpy and we may get tossed about, but this is when we need to listen to OURSELVES and to the deeper truths we discover as we journey along towards freedom. We are close, very close and this is why the going may get rough as the old falls away and the new moves in to fill the void. Stay strong, stay connected, stay aware and TRUST that all is moving forward as it is meant to.
Strength and courage to all,
