Have Faith and Live For Today


In this crazy, chaotic, and often times harsh world we live in today, it is sometimes hard to hold on to the belief that there is still good around us. That belief takes Faith…in ourselves and in others. Remember, just because we do not see it does not mean it is not present and lurking, waiting to “be seen”. All it takes is for us to change our perspective and live in the moment…choosing to have Faith in that moment…and string those moments together to create a web of positive energy to wrap around us and carry us to the next moment. It does not matter if no one else is doing it. We must do it for ourselves, showing others by action that it is possible.

Have Faith…in your ability to Shine. And know that  your Light has purpose and effect. Live for today, in the moment, and let that inner Light glow. Blessings!

This post continues the message that…though adversity can do its best to change us and make us sad and bitter…it cannot change the inner core of who we are if we do not let it. ALWAYS be Yourself! Stand in the truth of who you really are deep within, and the adversity does not stand a chance.

Love Yourself, Trust Yourself, and Be Yourself. Nothing else matters or wins.

Be Gentle


Going through my recent difficulties, I have been through a wide range of emotions. Some…I did not know I had the capacity for. I have ALWAYS been (and continue to be) a lover of souls, accepting of others, understanding of foibles, and forgiving of harshness. But, some of the things that have happened to me have brought out feelings I would rather have had left veiled. I am getting through it all, with my True Soul intact…but I have a deeper understanding now of how people reach the depths of anger and defeat that they do. So, a lesson learned is valuable.

As I wade in this pool of uncertainty…I have continually reminded myself not to change because of it…to retain my True Heart and Soul and Mind and that, in the end…I will prevail.

So here is a gentle reminder for all of you who may be going through the same process…or are just saddened and frustrated by how the world seems to be declining into chaos, misery, and fear.

DON’T LET IT CHANGE YOU…and ultimately, we will prevail.

Blessings and Love to All!

On Writing

Slinking up stairs

Shadows still dark

Lighting the candle

With the strike of a spark


Pushing a button

Hear the low hum

A day before dawn

Has just begun


Thoughts come aswirl

Up from the fog

The screen light is staring

Time to write that blog!

Here We Go Round The Mulberry Bush and Go With The Flow


Flow 1

Hello My Darling Readers! Once again, I must apologize for being away for so long, especially when I thought I would be back in some form of frequency. But, alas, complications have risen and I am now “going round the mulberry bush” of endless doctors appointments and tests and more tests that lead, still, to another surgery I had hoped would be sooner than later. But…I am clinging to the bush and pushing through the brambles…determined that there is a path hiding there somewhere that leads out of this forest. I know there is…and I shall come upon it soon.

So, for inspiration today, I pulled my bag of Runes to my warm hands and plunged in in search of a message to take with us this week. Of course, the Runes in their brilliance, cast the message just as needed.

Take it with you, in your hearts, minds, and souls…and no matter what is dragging you round the mulberry bush this week...trick it…and go with the Flow instead! Wink!

Blessings and Love to you all…and See you Soon!

Laguz: Flow, Water, That Which Conducts (original post 4/21/14)

Message (paraphrased): Unseen powers are active here, creative and fertile powers of Nature. The attributes of this Rune are water, fluidity, the ebb and flow of tides and emotions, of careers and relationships. Laguz fulfills our need to immerse ourselves in the experience of living without having to evaluate or understand. It speaks to the desire for comfort and the satisfaction of emotional needs, to the lunar side of our nature. For, while the sun strives for differentiation, the moon draws us toward unity and merging.

This Rune often signals a time for cleansing: for revaluing, reorganizing, realigning. A Rune of deep knowing, Laguz may call you to study spiritual matters in readiness for self-transformation. Success now lies in contacting your intuitive knowing, in attuning to your own rhythms. A Rune of the Self relating rightly to the Self, Laguz signifies what alchemists called the conjunctio, or sacred marriage. In fairy tales, it is the end where the hero and heroine live happily ever after”.

Flow 2

from The Desk of MarDrag:

Go with the Flow. We have all heard that phrase, often! And sometimes it is not as easy as others to follow its advice. But Laguz is telling us today that, no matter what circumstances may look like, go with the Flow of what is happening. There are unseen powers and energies at work around us that help contribute to where our paths take us. It is these forces that are active when we are creating, or working to create something in our lives…a new job, a projects success, manifesting a relationship, maintaining our current path. Our job is to keep to our spiritual work on ourselves, evaluate what we think we really want from life, and stay in touch with our intuition and our own rhythms to help guide us to self-transformation.

The Flow of life is much like the flow of a river…there is a current our lives ride along on our path. The river twists and turns, and sometimes has to find a way over rocks and pebbles and obstacles…but it always trickles through and polishes those rocks until they are smooth and the Flow can resume its natural path.

So, if there are obstacles in the way, go with the Flow, and it will work itself out, naturally. We cannot push the river. It Flows at its own pace, as our lives have their pace too, and we must trust our paths, our rivers, the nature of our Flow, to instinctively know its direction. Sometimes we understand the direction, but sometimes it is not as clear until we reach the bend that takes us in that direction. It is not always possible to understand why things happen the way they do. So, we must Trust our Self and our path…and go with the Flow.


Take A Mental Rest


I did not used to be too much of a worrier. I took things in stride and realized that life is full of ups and downs and in order to manage them, I had to look at the bigger picture when uncomfortable things happened. I wrote a bit about this here on the blog. The idea that, even though things are rough at the moment, they do not stay that way, and we always move back up the hill from the valleys and stand in the sun again.

My recent health struggles have changed this concept for me a bit…and I started to worry more, which caused me stress, which elevated my blood pressure, and made me even more uncomfortable. So…I am on a mission to change this and regain my mental balance. One trick I use when I find myself tripping over thoughts and worries is to visualize those things marching in a straight line right out of my head, leaving my mind open, quiet, and peaceful again. What tricks might you have to help yourself back to mental balance?

So my message today is…Take A Mental Break. Whatever is troubling you or causing your thoughts to obsess…let it go. March it out of your mind and take a break from it. We must not let our fears take control…and it is through our thoughts that they do.

So join me this weekend in Taking A Mental Break…find your Peace…and do something you really enjoy. Everything else can wait. And with a clear mind, we can see further to a time when these worries are not part of our existence any longer.

Enjoy your weekend! You deserve it! Blessings!

Supporting One Another


As I continue on this challenging road, one thing that makes the most difference in my ability to deal with it, is the support I receive from my most amazing daughter and the people and friends around me. I could not do this without them. So…I dedicate my post today to those angels who cradle me and lift me up and care for me.

To be sure…there have been many difficult people to deal with through this. From the emergency room, to the hospital, doctors and nurses who have forgotten their compassionate gene and why they became who they are, to insurance and supply people who have no patience and do not really care about the patient. This is why I became a Patient Advocate and now sit on a committee at the hospital to help make good changes…which have come and are still coming. I tell you, it shocked me to find the situation this bad. It had been a long while, many years, since I had had to deal with the medical industry. To my wonder and dismay, it has changed for the worse so dramatically. But, so too, can the change for good be dramatic…and I am doing what I can to help that along. I will write more on this one day.

But for today…let me shout out a grateful…Thank You…to those who have been pillars of strength and love and care to help me through this. They deserve it and so much more.

Remember to support those around you and in your life. We do not have to like the situation, but we must love the person and support them with all our might…we may need that support ourselves one day. And we must let the Universe and the Gods and Goddesses know we respect and care about…Life.

Join me today…and support someone. Lend a hand or an ear. It makes such a difference.
