Mr. Groundhog Returns!

I am very excited to share that I finally had a sighting of Mr. Groundhog (aka Fatty)! I haven’t seen him in months and was worried that the other more active wildlife here had perhaps taken off with him. But much to my surprise, he popped up into my yard and I was able to greet him with a happy smile.

Now I know many people may not be as enthusiastic as I am when a groundhog who has a large labyrinth underground has made it through hibernation only to pop back up, but I am! A few days ago after the farmer across the street had tilled the field, I watched a few groundhogs scampering across the street in the recently turned soil and hoped that perhaps one of them was mine.

Fatty is looking pretty lean so I hope that his munching on the dandelions (of which I have a ton in the yard right now) will fatten him up again happily after his long winter’s nap. Now I just have to wait and see if Mrs. Fatty returns as well!

Of course, you know I am anxiously awaiting a sighting of my darling bunnies. So far, I haven’t seen them, but I am keeping a watchful eye out!

Which by the way, reminds me – Today is…

May First which is….Rabbit Rabbit, White Rabbit, White Rabbit Day!

Full Moon In Scorpio

There are many issues that come to the surface with this Super Moon in Scorpio. Have you been feeling them? What used to work for us, the old ways and reactions, no longer seem to work anymore. A huge part of the healing process that we are working on has to do with forgiveness as well as the need to remain as non-judgmental as possible. For some this is easier than for others. But it is a very necessary part of the healing process.

Because we are all powerful manifestors and creators, we must let go of illusions and recognize how empowered we are! What does that mean for you? It means quieting the mind and allowing limiting beliefs to fall away. It is allowing feelings that may have been suppressed in the past to come to the surface to be cleared away once and for all. It is to see with more of an observational knowing that we are all here just doing our best with what we know.

May those who have fallen away from your life be released with gratitude for what we have learned through the life lessons shared with them. Every relationship serves its purpose to allow us to grow, to strengthen and to move beyond the limits that we were given. There are no mistakes. There are no regrets. There is just what happened and how we all moved on to heal from that time.

We are all empowered with healing energy, with a knowing of the truth once we allow ourselves to feel the emotions that we may have been suppressing and to release the past as we ready for the future light that is here now. It is the movement from 3D to 5D that we’re experiencing in case you’re wondering what is going on. We’ve been on this path for awhile now as it unfolds.

I hope you were able to see the full moon last night. I went out to take the photo above and then noticed the herd in the field. Below is the shot of them and as you can tell, that full moon lit up the ground below in a spectacular way!

You can see the house lights in the distance and the herd of deer!

I hope you are all doing well. I am sorry I have not been very active lately, but I am still here. Sending you all love and shining my heartlight to yours!

Shine On!

Birthday Blessings

I am one of those people who loves her birthday. Perhaps it’s because I am so grateful to have made it another year around the sun that I am like a little girl when it comes to my birthday. The joy that emanates from me is palpable. Perhaps it is because I am a cancer survivor, but honestly, I’ve always been this way. I just love my birthday and I’m not afraid to show it!

Some people my age (ahem) may not feel the same way I do, but I can’t help it! I am thrilled to tell you how old I am for I have made it through some hard times and I’m still here! I’ve earned every wrinkle (through laughter and tears) and I’m thrilled that I can say I’m over 50 years old and still here! I don’t shy away from telling my age because it’s only a number to me. A way to count my years on this planet.

I feel immense gratitude toward all of the beautiful friends and family that I love so much for making my day special – each in their own way. There’s such a wave of love that has poured over me today that I am floating on a sea of love and enjoying every single minute of it. How I wish I could share this with you (well that’s why I’m writing!) so I can remember this special feeling.

The darling birds are chirping outside my window pane and I have my beloved cats here next to me as I sip my coffee in the quiet of the morning. My children are still soundly asleep, safe and happy in their home with me. All is well and I feel so much gratitude to God for all that I have.

This peaceful full of love feeling has my heartlight shining at maximum luminosity. There is a happy song playing in my heart. Can you hear it too?

Please allow me to share this joy with you! Allow my heart light and heart song to illuminate your day, shower peace and healing into your life and remain with you. Thank you all for reading and for being my sweet friends!

Shine On!

The Smell of Spring

March always reminds me of daffodils because they grew in the backyard of my childhood home. Being a March baby, I clearly remember my Mom cutting the daffodils and placing them in a vase on our kitchen table every year around my birthday. To me, daffodils are that joyful expression that Spring is coming (as is my birthday)!

There is something cheerful about seeing the daffodils and smelling the earth starting to come alive in Springtime. I bought myself a handful of daffodils yesterday at the store. As I arranged them in a small vase that was my Mom’s, I was smiling. It’s the little things, those precious moments that I treasure. Don’t you?

It’s been getting warmer here in Jersey and the birds are chatting away more than usual. Perhaps it’s not more than usual, but simply that it’s been so quiet throughout the Winter months. It’s good to hear them prattling away and calling to each other. I have been watching them eat from the suet bird feeders I got this Winter. They are so much fun to watch!

However, I saw that there is a possibility of a snow storm next week and much to everyone else’s chagrin, I’m smiling about it! I love snow as well and would welcome one last snowfall before Spring is officially here. Back in the 70’s I remember a snow storm on my birthday which I loved! Perhaps we have another one in store for 2021?

I hope that all of you are healthy and happy. I haven’t been writing as much lately, but I do think of you often. My darling rabbits and wildlife haven’t been seen in a long while. I’m not sure if they’ve moved, are hibernating or perhaps have met their demise which saddens me. I’m hoping for a resurgence in the Spring. I’ll stay in touch and let you know!

In the meantime, may you have a lovely Thursday afternoon in March wherever you are. May you take a few moments to notice The Presents of Presence in your day. Take an extra moment or two to just be, look up at the sky, notice the grass and the smell of Spring starting. Count your blessings and be grateful for your loved ones by your side. I am grateful for all of you.

Shine On!

Hello March!

I love when Rose Hill Designs by Heather Stillufsen posts one of her designs (like the one above) that speaks to me. In the past you know I have talked about rabbit-rabbit-white-rabbit-white-rabbit every first of the month, but today is a little different. I adore daffodils as they remind me of my Mom who passed last year. Every year in March, the daffodils in her garden would bloom and she would cut a few of them to put in a small vase on our kitchen table. Because my birthday is in March, I have always associated daffodils with my birthday (and my Mom).

So when I saw the design above, I felt drawn to write and to post it. Because I believe that even when we pass away, we leave a little bit of us behind in the memories of our family and friends. A chance remark, a certain phrase, a whiff of Spring or even a small bouquet of daffodils can remind us of the goodness in those who are no longer here. Perhaps it is a sign that they are still among us, even though we can’t see them. Or perhaps it is nothing but a coincidence.

I believe in signs, in synchronicity and that little is chance or coincidence. I’ve had too many inexplicable experiences to believe otherwise which comforts me. So today I wish you a Happy March as well as lucky – Rabbit Rabbit, White Rabbit White Rabbit!

Celebrate the lives of our loved ones…

We may never be able to explain the things that happen in this world.

All we can do is live the best life we possibly can and celebrate the lives of our loved ones.

I’m just sending a hug to all of you. A card virtually through the ether from my heart to yours for I know that many of you have been having a hard time. This isn’t an easy time in the world. We’ve lost many loved ones. Feeling unsettled hasn’t been an easy road for anyone. So I thought a little support and love was needed today. Surely, we can always use more kindness, caring and comfort.

From my heart to yours…a heartfelt hug and healing thoughts.

Shine On!

All You Need Is Love

There’s a popular song by the Beatles called, “All You Need Is Love” which you may remember. When I awoke this morning, I heard that song in my head and chose to share it today since Valentine’s Day is nearly upon us.

Life sure feels strange lately with all the upheaval. There’s so much fear and uncertainty. Politically people are at odds and then there’s the Covid-19 virus which has many worried as well. I try not to watch the news since much of it has negativity to it. I like to stay informed, but I also don’t want to get caught up in the whirlwind.

As light workers shining our heartlights, we continually need to feed ourselves positivity. Not in a Pollyanna sort of way, but in choosing to stay centered, and with kindness, love and caring for all people. Love holds the key to unlocking so many of our troubles these days. Perhaps that’s why the song resonated with me this morning.

Love is all you need is a great reminder to what’s important in this world. Giving and receiving love heals us all. Love makes the world go round, don’t you think?

Shine On!

Jersey Roots

As you may remember, I’m a Jersey Girl. Born and raised in New Jersey. Bruce (Bruce Springsteen) is pretty famous here. He lived in my town for awhile. I’ve met him a few times. We’ve actually got a few friends in common. Whenever we’ve met he’s been nice and not pretentious at all. A normal man who doesn’t act like he’s a celebrity or deserves special treatment. Just a kind person…and that counts for a lot in my book.

It’s been a few years since I’ve watched the Superbowl, but I’ve always loved the commercials. This one was no exception and in tribute to my Jersey roots (and to Bruce’s), I wanted to share it with you. Because there’s a feeling of hope, calm, caring and even love in this commercial. What do you think of it?

“There’s a chapel in Kansas standing on the exact center of the lower 48. It never closes. All are more than welcome to come meet here in the middle,” Bruce says. “It’s no secret, the middle has been a hard place to get to lately, between red and blue, between servant and citizen, between our freedom and our fear.”

“Now fear has never been the best of who we are. And as for freedom, it’s not the property of just the fortunate few. It belongs to us all, whoever you are, wherever you’re from. It’s what connects us, and we need that connection,” he continues. “We need the middle. We just have to remember the very soil we stand on is common ground. So we can get there. We can make it to the mountain top, through the desert, and we will cross this divide. Our light has always found its way through the darkness. And there’s hope on the rode up ahead.”

Our light has always found its way through the darkness.

Our Deepest Fear

FDD19FBB-8399-45F4-B63C-4622730542A7

Our Deepest Fear
By Marianne Williamson

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness
That most frightens us.

We ask ourselves
Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.

Your playing small
Does not serve the world.
There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking
So that other people won’t feel insecure around you.

We are all meant to shine,
As children do.
We were born to make manifest
The glory of God that is within us.

It’s not just in some of us;
It’s in everyone.

And as we let our own light shine,
We unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we’re liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.

 

Just a little inspiration for all of us.  May you continue to shine your heartlights!

Shine On!

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!
