Ten Days Of Palindromes

Yesterday began a ten day series of palindromes for the date. Perhaps it is only a small synchronicity that I found this information interesting. Do you? I do not know if there’s a spiritual meaning involved with it, but I do find it curious.

For I see repeating numbers and even palindromes on the digital clock often. 11:11, 1:11, 3:33, 12:34 are often displayed when I look up at the clock. There was even a period of time when 2:22 and 4:44 were prevelant for me. Awhile back I started taking screen shots of them to document how often it happened during the day. While some days it feels as if checking the time beckons more to me, even on those days that I am too busy, it happens.

I like to share what I find interesting with you. While I’m not up to date on numerology or meanings of numbers, I thought perhaps one of you might have more information, so please feel free to share it!

As always, I am shining my heartlight to all of you and sending heartfelt hugs. I pray all is well with you.

Shine On!

Greetings 2021

Happy First Monday of 2021 to all! I hope you had a lovely New Year’s and that you are quickly settling into writing 2021 as opposed to 2020! It always takes me a few days to get used to writing a new year in the beginning. Do you have the same experience?

I awoke this morning and realized that this is a new decade for me and my loved ones. A lot happened in our lives during the last decade 2010-2020 which brought about so many tears, changes and much upheaval. But I am looking forward to this new decade which comes in altogether differently with a breath of fresh optimism, love, light and healing. I am so grateful for the past decade which taught me so much even when it was so difficult. I remain blessed that what I endured during these last ten years has made me stronger, more resilient and has taught me more about life and people than I ever really intended. I’ve learned so much which allows me to help others who are in similar situations. For walking these paths is not easy and sometimes we simply need a hand to hold onto as we continue on. As always, I offer you my hand in friendship.

What I love is that I can honestly tell you that I am happy, and that I have healed from the past decade’s experiences. Overcoming so many life’s challenges without losing myself, nor my positive attitude, has been miraculous. I have had much help over the years and I am truly grateful for those who stayed and supported me, took the time to listen, to help me to heal and to inspire me to believe in love and life again. These gifts are so precious to me as are those people who reached out with kindness and caring.

I am raising my glass to you and to 2021 in greetings! May we continue to see the glass as. half full and be grateful for the glass itself which is refillable. May we hold precious those who care and love innately. May we be filled with hope, inspiration and the light of goodness as we fill our days shining our heartlights. May we never forget The Presents of Presence no matter how hectic our lives become – for this lifetime is short and is never guaranteed for a certain period of time.

So live a life that you are proud of,

a legacy of love,

that helps all with whom you connect

to feel the blessings

that your presence is to our world.

Shine On!

A Mother’s Legacy of Love

It is a quiet morning here. The Christmas tree is brightly lit with white twinkly lights. The cats are nestled around it and the children are still in bed. Sipping my coffee, in the early morning stillness, my mind is melancholy. The week between Christmas and New Years has become a relaxing one for me. One when I feel tremendously present, blessed and grateful for all of those whom have touched my life.

This year, my Mom isn’t here and the tears began falling. Silent reminders of a life well-lived and with gratitude for being her daughter. I miss my Mom for many reasons, but most of all for her unconditional love and kindness. While none of us are perfect, her love and her heartlight were always shining. She is my role model when it comes to loving people for who they are with unconditional love and understanding.

I found the poem below and it brought me much peace so I thought I’d share it with you. Hold your loved ones close and find the goodness always.

Shine On!

She Is Gone

You can shed tears that she is gone
or you can smile because she has lived. 

You can close your eyes and pray that she’ll come back
or you can open your eyes and see all she’s left. 

Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her
or you can be full of the love you shared. 

You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday
or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday. 

You can remember her and only that she’s gone
or you can cherish her memory and let it live on. 

You can cry and close your mind,
be empty and turn your back
or you can do what she’d want:
smile, open your eyes, love and go on.

Wishing You Love And Joy

Wishing you and yours a very Merry Blessed Christmas filled with so much love and joy!

I pray you enjoy a day that reminds you of all of the blessings we have to be grateful for surrounded by loving memories of those who cannot be with us today. I am reminded in the still of the morning with my sweet children asleep in their beds that these are the small blessings, the amazing moments that are to be cherished.

So hold your loved ones closely. Life is precious. Be the love and joy you wish to feel in this world. As always, keep shining your heartlights! You are loved!!

Shine On!

Happy Winter Solstice 2020!

Photo credit from here

The shortest day of the year aligns with the longest night on December 21st 2020. The Winter Solstice this year (if you aren’t already aware) features the first visible “double planet” in 800 years which are Jupiter and Saturn. This conjunction is also being referred to as the “Christmas Star.”

What a lovely blessing for this year that has been fraught with turmoil, disappointment, fear and sadness. We are nearing the end of 2020 with many of us heavy-hearted, tired and worn out. But innately, also with hope, love and a yearning for peace. I find the Christmas Star to be a necessary and appreciated highlight right now. Don’t you?

Are you planning on taking a walk outside to see if you can view this extraordinary gift today? Due to our time zones, perhaps some of you will not be able to see it or perhaps you already have (by the time you read this)! Either way, I’d love to hear about your experience and see your photos if you take any!

My hugs are plentiful for all of you. May you find peace in The Presents of Presence and be thankful for the amazing gifts this world presents when we need them most. I hope you are all doing well. Keep shining your heartlights!

Shine On!

Rabbit Rabbit

Well friends, it’s that time of the month again! You know, the one when we say rabbit-rabbit-white-rabbit-white-rabbit/! Have you said it yet? I put two rabbits in the photo today. I just felt like we all needed a little extra this month considering we’re in the home stretch of 2020! For some I know this has been a really difficult year. I think we have all felt the stresses this year, but I pray that we will find this last month of the year one where we feel a healing. Certainly with the holidays approaching we can find peace within and some holiday spirit to lift us up.

I hope that you are taking good care of yourselves for I think of you often. I am not on my blog as much as I have been in past years, but I hope that 2021 allows me more time to spread positivity and to connect with all of you!

Keep shining your heartlights! We all need to shine in this darkness and spread love and light.

Shine On!

Nature’s Jewelry

My beautiful tree in the front yard is still holding onto her leaves. Bejeweled tones of ruby, amber and orange are so stunning in the sunlight that the above photo doesn’t do justice as to her loveliness.

I find a tranquility in communing with nature and this certainly is the perfect setting for it here out in the country. While most of the trees here have let go of their leaves, this one hasn’t yet and what a present that is to me!

How about at your homestead? Are the leaves still hanging on or have they already dropped? I think it’s late for this one to be still full of leaves, but I’m not complaining! I love it!

I hope you’re having a lovely Sunday. Keep shining your heartlights and continue to be grateful for every precious day.

Shine On!

Count Your Blessings

In my life, I’ve found that when I count my blessings, I feel more present. There’s something about being in a place of gratitude with a peaceful heart that helps me to rise above the fray of life’s troubles.

So this morning I awoke to count my blessings since it is Thanksgiving. I lit a favorite pumpkin spice candle in the kitchen to allow the scent to waft through our home and bring a cheery presence.

As I sipped my coffee in the early quiet morning hours, a rush of gratitude enveloped me. I am grateful to be here today. I am grateful for my children, my family and friends. I am grateful for this precious moment of tranquility.

This is the first major holiday without my parents. If I allowed myself to wallow in the sadness, it would be a shame, so I shed a few tears that needed to escape. Then I sat quietly thinking of them. It only feels hard to deal with emotionally if I allow that to be in my thoughts. If I feel grateful for the love my deceased parents and I shared, then there’s a different perspective. For I don’t believe they are gone from my life, but instead, very present in a spiritual way. For that, I’m grateful.

So on this Thanksgiving, I extend my heartlight to yours with gratitude for our friendship. I pray you have a lovely day filled with an abundance of gratitude for the blessings in your life. Hold your loved ones close in heart. Be kind and compassionate. Shine your heartlights for all to see. May a chorus of counting our blessings be felt across the world.

Shine On!

Do You Often See 11:11?

Often when I pick up my phone, the time on it shows 11:11, so what better way to celebrate today’s date which coincidentally is 11/11! For today’s date is special, especially with the added year being 2020. Did you take notice of it? Do you know anything about it?

Well, I started a little research because the synchronicity of these numbers fascinate me. Below are a few articles that you may find interesting as this is a time when a fresh start and a portal to deep transformation of humanity is here.

Beyond numerology, planetary alignments and the angelic significance of the numbers, I feel a change today. An opening of spirit and when I stood outside in nature, I felt that deep connection to love and light in our world.

Keep shining your heartleights dear friends! Happy 11/11/2020 to you!

Have You Checked Your Spam Comment Folder Lately?

To all my dear blogging friends, have you checked your spam comment folder lately? Much to my surprise I had over 200 comments waiting for me in the Spam Folder. I hadn’t checked it in awhile so I was surprised to see so many of them there.

Further investigation showed the exact same phrase over and over on three different posts. The phrase was:

“Muchas gracias. ?Como puedo iniciar sesion?”

Which in Spanish means, “Thank you. How can I begin the session?”

At first glance, I had to see what post this comment referred to, but none of the posts that this Spam comment was in had anything to do with a session of any sort. Then I began looking at the users who commented this way and after wasting time blocking them and permanently deleting them, I realized that the same users were spamming my posts with the same comment as above. However, they were also using different people’s emails.

Has this happened to you?

It seems this all happened within the last week. Do people have nothing better to do than to be obnoxious? I don’t quite understand the reasoning behind writing the same comment and infiltrating other people’s emails to deliver said comment repeatedly!

Do you have any more information on this type of annoyance? I am wondering if I am the only one or if it’s happening across WP? By the way, thank you to WordPress for catching the Spam in a folder for me! It would have been infinitely more difficult to deal with it had they not corralled the mischief in my Spam folder.

In either case, they are deleted and hopefully will not return. I hope all of you are healthy and doing well. Keep shining your heartlights and please let me know if you’ve encountered anything similar!

Shine On!
