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!

Flow 3

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.

Blessings!

Monday Message ~ Flow of The True Self

 

Good Monday Morning! I hope you all had a lovely weekend. I am up early, seeking our message to begin our week and take with us through it with wisdom. The Runes are speaking this morning, so I pulled “The Book of Runes” by Ralph Blum close, and the Rune that fell into my palm was:

L 1

Laguz: Flow, Water, That Which Conducts

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”.

L 2

from The Desk of MarDrag:

I have written a great deal lately about the importance of living our True Life and being our True Self. Now, it is more important than ever, as we see the turbulence in the world ramp up and become disheartening and frightening. Laguz, the Rune of deep knowing, calls on us to do that very thing…to reach deeply into our Spiritual Self and align with our intuition, which leads to our True Self. Now is the time to lay aside the lies we tell ourselves, the pain of the past, and the self-incriminating ideas that we are not enough. Our True Self is always enough because that is where our True Nature lies. And, whenever we live in our truth, positive energy thrives.

L 3

Laguz once again reminds us that unseen powers are at work. Those forces around us that we cannot see, but are present and moving and creating around us. Some of that creation looks hazardous…but we cannot succumb, we must dig deep and find that Spiritual Warrior and make ready for self-transformation…which will aid the world in its transformation. If each of us do this, the Light we create will link, and balance will be restored. Just by being our True Self, and living by our own True Nature, we help the balance of the tides that are ebbing.

L 4

Some of this we can understand…but there are many things we do not or cannot understand at the moment, but that should not stop us from moving forward and doing what we know we need to do. Often…the understanding comes after we have been brave enough to keep moving, even when we are not sure where we are going.

Right now, we may not be sure of “where”…but we can be sure of “how”…by accessing our intuition, tapping into our own individual rhythm, and aligning with our True Self. And going with the Flow that comes from living our True Life.

L 5

We must Flow with the tides, not against them, as we align and link. This is important…if we are to have our fairy tale happy ending. Which…I believe…is still possible.

Blessings!

Thoughts For The Day

 

TH 1

“A river is victoriously persistent, overcoming all barriers. For a while it goes steadily on its course, but then comes to an obstacle. And for a while it is blocked, yet it soon makes a pathway around the obstacle. Or a river will drop out of sight for miles, only later to emerge again even broader and greater than ever… Never focus your eyes on the obstacle or the difficulty.” ~ Oswald Chambers

TH 2

“Success is determined not by whether or not you face obstacles, but by your reaction to them. And if you look at these obstacles as a containing fence, they become your excuse for failure. If you look at them as a hurdle, each one strengthens you for the next.” ~ Ben Carson

MarDrag’s Thoughts:

Both of these quotes are about Obstacles. I love the first one…because it so eloquently points out that…the flow of a river never stops, or never runs out. It may have to weave around barriers, or overcome obstacles, and it may even disappear for a stretch…but its persistent waters will always find their path again. Like we humans. We are ever resilient…as the river…so take that reflection and live by it. Do not fence yourself in with your fears. Use those hurdles and obstacles to make you stronger.

Our reaction to, and our attitude towards obstacles and barriers is THE thing that determines whether we get stuck or flow on.

TH 3

“But what is happiness except the simple harmony between a man and the life he leads?” ~ Albert Camus

MarDrag’s Thoughts:

No matter where you are, how you live, or what circumstances you face…seek to be in Harmony with them. That is…do not fight with your life…fight to find Harmony with it. It is when we flow with our life rather than against it that we can find a way to Happiness, even through the difficulties.

Monday Message ~ Fertile Season

 

Good Monday Morning! Today’s post brings us our regular Monday Message to take into the week with a bit of wisdom to help us along. This week, we consult the Runes for that message. And so, with my well-used, tattered and worn “Book of Runes” by Ralph Blum before me, I tumble the stones in their bag until one finds its way to my palm. The Rune that shows itself for us today is:

Jera 1

Jera: “Harvest, Fertile Season, One Year

Message (paraphrased): “A Rune of beneficial outcomes, Jera applies to any activity or endeavor to which you are committed. Receiving this Rune encourages you to keep your spirits up. Be aware, however, that no quick results can be expected. A span of time always is involved, a full cycle of time before the reaping, the Harvest or deliverance.

You have prepared the ground and planted the seed. Now you must cultivate with care. To those whose labor has a long season, Jera offers encouragement of success. Know that the outcome is in the keeping of Providence and continue to persevere.

Remember the farmer who was so eager to assist his crops that he went out at night and tugged on the new shoots. There is no way to push the river; equally you cannot hasten the Harvest. Be mindful that patience is essential for the recognition of your own process which, in its season, leads to the Harvest of the Self.”

Golden field

from The Desk of MarDrag:

Well, there is a little of the good, and a little of the frustrating in this message today. On one hand, Jera is telling us that much of our hard work, planning, and planting of seeds is coming to fruition…or to harvest. It encourages us to stay our course and stay positive…and to cultivate those seeds and take care with our plans as we wait for them to unfold. And there brings the frustrating aspect…

…the wait. Sometimes, plans, goals, and moving forward take a bit of time to fall into place. We, then, are called upon to be patient, and that is not always easy in this fast-paced, instant access world we live in. We need or want things to happen now…and while some do…some take more time to ripen and come to full bloom and we cannot rush that process to be done before its time. As Jera says, we cannot push the river, or pull the shoots from the soil before they are fully grown and ready for the picking. If we move too soon or too quickly, we lose the benefit of our growth maturing to its fullest and we then cannot reap its full benefits.

Jera 3

With a little patience, we can gain the best of what we are gestating. But, while we wait, it is important to keep working at our endeavor and cultivating it until it is the best we can create, and we will be that much happier with the results for the wait. Because it is then that we get what we ask for.

Jera 5

So, we must be as clear as possible on what we want, and what we do to cultivate it. We must Persevere…and not lose hope or belief in what we are doing. If we recognize our process as necessary to the success of the outcome, then we can let the process flow and let go of the stress and worry of how it will turn out. This takes Trust, in ourselves and our path. Nurture that trust as we cultivate what we have planted…and we will see the shoots and blossoms from our efforts grow strong, beautiful, and fulfilling.

Jera 4

Blessings!

Monday Message ~ Go With The Flow

 

 

Good Monday Morning! I hope you all had a lovely weekend and enjoyed the Spring weather and holiday. In preparing for today’s weekly message, the Runes called to me this time. So I held the velvet bag that contains the stones in my warm hands and asked what message they would impart for us to follow this week. As I pulled “The Book of Runes” by Ralph Blum close, the Rune that fell into my palm was:

Flow5

Laguz: Flow, Water, That Which Conducts

Message (paraphrased): Unseen powers are active here, creative and fertile powers of Nature.

Monday Message ~ Flow

 

Happy Monday my Good Readers! I hope you had a wonderful…and Comforting…weekend. It is the start of the week, so our Monday Message post is at hand. This time, we are seeking our message from the Runes…so I plunge my hand into the bag of stones and pull one for us. Pulling “The Book of Runes” by Ralph Blum to me…I set down the stone and see that it is…

Laguz 1

Laguz:   “Flow, Water, That Which Conducts”

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.

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”.

Laguz 2

from The Desk of MarDrag:

So, the start of the message this week is to still “go with the flow”…a reminder that we all need to hear sometimes. It is often difficult to go with the flow, especially if it appears the flow is taking us other than where we think we want to go. We question, ponder, and seek answers…but at times, it is called for to keep moving whether we have all the answers or fully understand or not. There are times when understanding does not come until we have moved through the circumstance. Would we hold our flow back or stop it for this?

Laguz 3

The word “Comfort” also comes up here, and I have been feeling this for everyone. I wish I could hold all of you in my arms, stroke your hair, and whisper comforting words to you. I think we all need a great deal of Comfort in these difficult days, but mostly get precious little of it. That is why it is so important to remember we can give Comfort to ourselves. Yes, it is nice to get it from others, but if we can’t, then we should not let ourselves down by withholding it from ourselves. Seek Comfort!

Laguz 4

And finally…we will find a deeper understanding, or knowing, as we take time to reorganize any chaotic thoughts, or chaos in our surroundings. With cleansing comes clarity. Do deep breathing exercises, meditate, or do cleansing and grounding exercises. Make them part of our daily routine. In doing these, we access our intuitive side and find our own unique rhythm. Make the time! Because, with this, we form a deeper relationship with the Self…and in coming together with our True Self…magic happens…and fairy tales, dreams, and desires come true!

Laguz 5

Blessings!

Monday Message ~ Feel It

 

For our Monday Message today, I have chosen a passage from a book I sometimes look through for inspiration. It is called “I Am The Beloved” by Reverend Joy Dial. There are passages in this book that are remarkable in their wisdom, and this one spoke out to me this morning, asking to be the message that sends us into our week. It is about Feelings and Emotions…and here it is, paraphrased:

“If you choose, you have the Power and the Authority to make permanent changes in your physical reality, through a thorough catharsis of feelings that de-fragments the emotional clutter within your system. When you give yourself the opportunity to experience your lifetime of unfelt feelings, then the way is cleared for your experience of the fullness of your being.

Know that karmic energy is not be understood by the intellect, but experienced on a feeling level. If you choose not to experience these feelings, they are projected into a manifest form or situation which will impose the experience upon you, again and again, until you choose to surrender to the experience.

The experience and release of blocked energy expressing through you as sadness or despair, empowers you to also let go of narrow-minded misconceptions. Letting go of this energy leaves you with a tolerance and compassion that foreshadows all old opinions or judgments.

The energy you discharge fulfills hereditary karmic handicaps, leaving you free to experience the elegance you know as your True Self.”

Feel 1

from The Desk of MarDrag:

My post yesterday was about Personal Power. Now today, we have a message that tells us not only do we have Power…but we also have Authority over our lives. With Power and Authority, we have command of our lives and spaces and we can change our reality. But that change does not only come from the intellect from which ideas spring. It also comes from Feeling the energy that is the springboard for those ideas.

Feel 2

Now, if we deny our Feelings, about anything, including ideas, people, emotions, pain, suffering, joy, happiness…then we deny a part of ourselves that we are meant to experience, and we stuff those Feelings, creating a cluttered pile of emotion that has no outlet. With no outlet, and therefore no relief through experience, those cluttered crammed Feelings will manifest in some form, in order to be experienced, and will continue to manifest until we embrace the Feelings and the experience necessary for their release. (How many times do we ask ourselves why we are going through something…again?!)

In other words…Experience Everything…Feel Everything. It is a part of our lives for a reason, and we are meant to live it. There is a saying that the only way to “get over” feeling something…is to go through it. To Feel it with every fiber of our being for all it is worth. To squeeze every drop of energy out of our experiences…both good and bad…and then we will know the fullness of our being.

Feel 3

And so too, as we move through the experience and Feelings, we release any blocked energy and open the flow of our life, empowering us to let go of misconceptions, opinions, and judgments that hold us back. Leaving us with more tolerance and compassion, for ourselves as well as others.

Feel 4

Don’t hide. Live life to the fullest. Feel Life. And, if there are Feelings within you that have been denied and have not had their experience, let them out, Feel them, then let them go. The energy you let go of clears your karmic path of old experiences and leaves you clean and open for new experiences that will lead you to a deeper relationship with your True Self.

Feel 5

Blessings!

Monday Message ~ Grace

 

This weeks  “Monday Message” comes to us from the animal kingdom. I took to my “Medicine Cards ~ The Discovery of Power Through The Ways of Animals” by Jamie Sams and David Carson…and this is the message that was sent to us:

Swan 1

Swan: “Grace”

Message (paraphrased): “Little Swan flew through Dreamtime, looking for the future. As Swan looked high above Sacred Mountain, she saw the biggest swirling black hole she had ever seen. Dragonfly flew by and Swan stopped him to ask about the black hole. Dragonfly said, “Swan, that is the doorway to other planes of imagination. I have been guardian of the illusion for many moons. If you want to enter there, you would have to earn the right.”

Swan was not so sure she wanted to enter the black hole. She asked Dragonfly what was necessary for her to earn entry. Dragonfly replied, “You must be willing to accept whatever the future holds as it is presented.” Swan looked at her little ugly duckling body and answered, “I won’t fight the currents of the black hole. I will surrender to the flow and trust what I am shown.” Dragonfly was happy with Swan’s answer and began to spin the magic to break the illusion.

Swan reappeared many days later, but now she was graceful, white, and long-necked. Dragonfly was stunned! Swan smiled and said, “I learned to surrender to the power of the Universe and Great Spirit and was taken to where the future lives. Because of my faith and my acceptance, I have been changed. I have learned to accept the state of Grace.”

So it is that we learn to surrender to the Grace of the rhythm of the Universe, and slip into Dreamtime. Swan medicine teaches us to be at one with all planes of consciousness, and to trust in the Universe and Great Spirit’s protection.

Swan ushers in a time of altered states of awareness and of development of your intuitive abilities. And a time of accepting the healing and transformation of your life.

The Swan card is telling you to accept your ability to know what lies ahead. If you are resisting your self-transformation, Relax…it will be easier if you go with the flow. Pay attention to your hunches and your gut knowledge, and honor your female intuitive side.”

stone of grace

from The Desk of MarDrag:

Well, yesterday’s inspiration post was about Acceptance…and here today we have another message about it…and the state of Grace acquired through that Acceptance.

We all face certain “Black Holes” in our lives. Things can happen and the future can “look” uncertain. We can be facing a huge void that frightens us because we do not know what will be presented there. And we resist entering it.

The thing is…is that, within that void can be wonderful things to fill our life up with. In there can be the very things we are looking for, pursuing, or don’t even know we want yet. And we will never find out unless we Relax….go with the flow…and enter the future trusting what we will be shown. We must go into the quiet and discern the rhythm of the Universe…as well as the unique rhythm of our own life…and surrender to it, to the flow. This does not mean we allow “anything” to happen to us…but that we focus on our Intuition to tell us what is right or not right for us.

Swan 3

We all have Intuition. Accept, with Grace, the wisdom of that voice. Accept, with Grace, where your Intuition leads you. And, Accept that you have more wisdom and knowledge about what lies ahead than you think…Trust what that knowledge tells you. Honor your Intuition, your gut instinct, and your female intuitive side.

Be as the Swan and enter the black holes with Grace and Acceptance…go with the flow…and you will come out of it with more Wisdom and Beauty than you ever thought you had.

Blessings!

Monday Message ~ Change

 

For our “Monday Message” to start the week with today, I am doing something a bit different. I have vivid dreams. Frequently. I have written about some of them here on the blog, and I have been having many of these dreams these past two weeks. I had been sick a few weeks ago and am just now catching up on sleep I had missed…so my slumber has been full of images and messages. Rather than write about a specific dream today though…I am pulling a card from my “Dream Cards” deck by Strephon Kaplan-Williams to see what they have to tell us. When I pull cards or Runes and such for our Monday Message, I am always aware of the rush of energy as the card reveals itself to be profoundly on the mark. The card I pulled today is:

Change 3

Change: Death ~ Rebirth ~ Causing, Contrast, Newness

Message (paraphrased): “Change is doing. We go from one thing to another. Why do people fear change and giving up what they have for what they do not have? Afraid that what they receive will be worse? We fear change because we identify with our present picture of ourselves and react against becoming something different. Resisting change makes change more extreme when it comes. We change by going with the energy, letting it consume old attitudes and self-images.

Your task is to actively participate in the change process by making appropriate sacrifices and enhancing new possibilities.

Blends of the old create new life. Seek to create new combinations of things. When it is time to end something, do it decisively. Make some real changes by getting rid of old patterns. When things are being destroyed, destroy with them. Get out of those situations. What you see is also what you don’t see. Take a careful look at how you might be creating problems. It is not changing things which counts but sacrificing resistance to change. Follow your feelings when making changes. Often the value of the middle path is to have change become choice. Bring your opposite extremes together. Change your view and you change your reality. Consider your hidden motives for doing things.”

Change 2

from The Desk of MarDrag:

Wow! There are so many profound statements in this card. To begin…Change is a concept that brings with it many varying degrees, circumstances, and therefore, emotions. At times we are ready for and supportive of Change. Other times we resist it to the point of denial, which ultimately brings hardship to our lives.

So let us begin with Resistance. It is so true that if we resist Change, it makes the Change that comes that much harder to deal with. Fear is the primary emotion that causes us to resist Change. As the quote says…we identify with who we are presently and fear becoming different…or not knowing what we will become if we allow Change to happen. But…we all know that Fear lies. So if we can silence its voice, (and that IS possible)…then we can see the value and benefit of Change and go with the energy rather than against it. It will ease our way into Change rather than force us into it. For Change is inevitable. And, if we actively participate in Change by letting go of what is no longer useful to us and embracing new possibilities, then we enhance our lives rather than struggle in them.

Change 4

Old patterns, situations, and problems need to be surrendered, let go of, in order for positive Change to occur and new and wonderful things to come in to fill the space. When something is breaking down or becoming toxic, let it go. End it, decisively. That is how we regain positive control of our lives. Change does not have to mean we lose control…it can be the vehicle for regaining control. If we do not resist it! If we make the sacrifice of the resistance to Change, then Change becomes our Choice. We Choose to allow Change to come and we use it to make better Choices and move forward to a new and better place.

Change 1

“Change your view and you change your reality”. Nothing could be more true. Rather than looking at Change as something to fear, or disrupt our lives…if we view Change as a vehicle to positive Control and movement to new and good things in our lives…then we see that we, in reality, have nothing to fear. In fact…we can look forward to it all…all that happens to us…because we know it is just a means for transport to another level in our lives that we either want to or are meant to get to.

So, instead of resisting Change, or fearing it, flow with it. Participate in the process of Change and see the possibilities that arise because of it. Make Change work….For You!

Blessings!

Our Source For This Life 2

 

To start our week out this week, I am re-posting something I had written several months ago. With the intense energy we are faced with and difficulties in our lives, I thought that we could all use this reminder that we do, indeed, have something profound and deep to count on. I hope this inspires you today, and helps bring better days to you this week. Blessings!

Source 2

As I was spending time in Meditation, something very profound came over me, and I wanted to share it here.

We are all called daily to give of ourselves…and though we likely do not do so enough…we should remember to give back to ourselves and do/think those things that fill us back up and Rejuvenate us…so we do not become overwhelmed, depleted, and ultimately empty. As I was doing these things for myself, one of them being Meditation, a new clarity started to open up about WHAT it is that we fill ourselves with. We all have our personal interests and spiritual food…but I began to ask a different question. From where does that come?

And the answer that came booming over me while deep in Meditation was…SOURCE. Our Source. Our own individual Source. That is…we as separate individual beings have a Source…our own direct Source. We learn about THE Source…whatever that means to each one of us, whether it be God, Goddess, Higher Powers, Universe, Earth, Spirit, etc…or all of the above! But in this Meditation…the meaning of Source presented itself in an absolute condensed focus…and I was shown my own individual line of Source…that was my connection and only mine. In other words, we pray to and draw from the Greater Source…but there is also our own personal Source, just for this life. Every being has their own unique Source, the point of energy where we begin and end. That line of Source is only for that individual, for that life and that life alone…and it is what feeds us.

???????????

So, when we look to be Rejuvenated…whether we can “get away” or not…all we need do is call to “Our Source” to flow into us and fill us up. The “doing” of that which revitalizes us is a pleasure, and we need to do that…but, it is the opening up to our own particular line of Source that truly fills us…and we need nothing, no one, and nowhere to access it.

I feel like I am hopelessly stumbling on the words to convey these thoughts…excruciating for a writer! So let me try a visual with an analogy! The Earth is filled with people, the sky with stars. For every person on the planet, there is a star in the heavens that is their own individual point of light. Visualize that there is a thread connecting each person to each star. The threads run smoothly through the heavens, never getting tangled, because at the Source, there is always balance and harmony. Through that thread runs our energy, vitality, spiritual nourishment. Our star is our own star, and feeds no one but us. The Greater Source feeds everyone, including our own star/source…but this one particular star…is just for us. Our own Source…always ready and full to send us what we need. It is never depleted. It can never be broken. And it will never leave us or fail us. And it knows exactly what we need. We need not fear to Trust it.

So…we have prayed or asked or begged of the Greater Source, and we all have, with differing results. But think of the possibilities once we realize, in absolute Knowing, that our own line of Source is there too. It confirms our place in the world, the universe. Even if we are lost within ourselves…our place in the universe is not lost. So we are always connected to and anchored in…our Source.

Source 1

Just as Nature is the Greater Source for a river…it still springs forth from it’s own Source point of rock, stream, or pond, etc. And so too…though we are all part of and can draw on the Greater Source…we still have our own individual Source of this one Life we have to live. And, we are as the river is…our lives flow with power, sometimes getting stuck on debris, but our flow will always move or wear down that debris and triumph over it…to flow freely and clearly once again.

Perhaps it is time to remember and become more aware of and reclaim that Source. For that Source embodies our Destiny, our True Life Purpose, and the Essence of who we Truly Are.

Call to that Source, Receive the flow, and see what happens.

Blessings!
