Honeybee Spirit Totem Animal Message

honeybeespirittotemanimalmessage

I thought that yesterday’s post about my 3 encounters with the honeybee might interest you as to what I found the message to be for me.  Perhaps you’ve had a visit from a honeybee as well, so I thought I’d share what I found from here.

When the honey-bee spirit animal appears to you, it’s calling your attention to your everyday miracles. Just look at your honey-bee totem which is so small yet able to achieve so much.

The honey-bee symbolism is also of community and teamwork. Use your talents to help humanity and make your personal contributions to change the world for the better.

Add your voice to the collective consciousness. Raise the vibrations of the world you live in.

Wow!  Who knew the honeybee was such a powerful totem?  And as I begin my next chapter into uncharted territory, I am grateful to that sweet little honeybee’s message.  I love our community of bloggers and the friendships we have made.  I am hoping now that we are transitioning into our new home, I can begin again to write, to read, to comment and to grow our community.

Please join me in raising the vibrations of the beautiful world we live in!  It’s time to spread our wings, band together and fly like the darling honeybee!

Shine On!

Rhododendron Christmas Tree

Rhododendron Christmas Tree

I saw the flower today on  Cee’s Photography  and it reminded me of the bush I have in my yard.  The other day I noticed how it looks a little like a Christmas tree to me, so here it is.  I hope you enjoy my offering!

When Was the Last Time You Felt Carefree?

When Was the Last Time You Felt Carefree?

I found myself pondering this very question today without a definitive answer.  In fact, I was unable to remember the last time I felt carefree.  When you ask yourself the same question, what is your answer?  Can you answer the question immediately or are you like me, wondering and hard pressed to remember that far back in your memories?

To be honest, there have been moments of joy and childish happiness recently, but the word carefree doesn’t ring a bell for any time recently.  I think when we get bogged down with life, adulthood and being responsible for so many people, situations and such, we find ourselves hard-pressed to take the much time needed to recoup a little childish wonder and release ourselves from the day to day drudgery in order to feel carefree even if it is only for a few precious moments.

I chose a photo of falling leaves as a carefree moment because it seems fitting to me.  Dancing, colorful leaves, in crisp cool air, feels carefree to me. (Thanks Canva!)

What photo would you use to show carefree?

The Daily Post Prompt gave me the impetus and gentle reminder to find more carefree moments in my life.  Perhaps finding a daily carefree moment is a new goal!  How about you?

What makes you feel carefree?

Awaken and Renew

It’s been raining here for awhile now.  The days grow dreary when rain settles into our lives.  But the sunshine awoke today, gloriously in the blue sky and the trees are sprouting from the rains.  As rain falls, it nourishes and sunshine renews and awakens love everywhere.

May you find rebirth, renewal and beautiful awakenings today in the small miraculous gifts that we witness when we simply look up to the sky and are grateful for what is.

Happy Monday!

May you shine your heartlight this week!

Shine On!

Behind the Closed Door

behindthecloseddoor

Most of us have, at one time or another, come across the following two quotes:

“When one door closes, another door opens, but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.”– Alexander Graham Bell

“When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one, which has been opened for us.” – Helen Keller

but it’s how we choose to deal with the closed door that makes all the difference.

We’ve all had ups and downs in our lives.  We don’t leave this lifetime without some tears, some smiles, laughter, love and disappointments.  It happens.  Life goes on.  Changes come gradually and sometimes they come in the blink of an eye.  Best laid plans sometimes go awry.  But we always have a choice to sit in front of a closed door, pining for something/someone or we can look around to discover that there’s more to life than the past that waits behind the door.

It takes courage.  We have a choice, but sometimes we forget that we indeed have that choice.  Sometimes it’s we who close the door and sometimes the door is closed on us.  Either way, we can sit outside the door expectantly, we can turn the knob to see if it’s locked or we can turn around and see what else there is in life.

At one time or another in this lifetime, I have experienced each scenario above and allowed the door to dictate my reaction.  Nowadays, I am seeing the door in a different light.  My past is behind the closed door and what goes on behind closed doors, stays behind closed doors.

The choice to wait expectantly in front of a closed door is ours alone to choose.  The choice to look around for another door or window of opportunity to see that there is more to life than that one door takes courage, but we already have that courage within us.  We just need to tap into it.

So take my hand dear friends.  If you are seeing a closed door in your life, let’s stop staring at the closed door.  Let’s spin around and view the goodness which surrounds us.  Let’s walk together to see what else life has in store for the possibilities are endless once we take that first baby step.

Keep shining your heartlights.  You are perfect, whole and complete just as you are.  I can see you twinkling from here and I send you a warm, heartfelt embrace.

Shine On!

Autumn Gems of Fall

Autumn.

Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor,

summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all.

~ Stanley Horowitz

The gems of fall are scattered all over my yard.  It’s a beautiful mosaic which is painted by Mother Nature, with a little help from her friends, the trees, the leaves, the wind and the animals who rustle through the leaves, foraging for food to put away for winter.

I love all of the seasons, but for some reason Autumn is making me so happy this year.  It’s in the rich tones of the fall colors that intrigue me and have me lamenting that I missed taking so many photos of the changing foliage.

If you have any lovely scenery, please feel free to comment below with your link!  I’d love to see your photos!

Shine On!
