Good Monday Morning! Once Again, I find myself compelled to re-post this message as so many people lately have been wondering about the current chaos and the future. In my stats, many of you have been accessing this post…so I am re-posting it again today for our Monday Message. May it give you something to take into your week that brings some peace of mind. Hang in there, stick together…and Shine Your Love and Light! Blessings!
Today I felt the call to seek my “Gifts of Affirmations” cards by Amy Zerner and Monte Farber and see what message they have for us today. As always, the card I pulled speaks to us as we navigate through this awkward and difficult time. The card I pulled was…
Gift of The New: “I Have Faith In The Future I Cannot See”
Message: “ Use this gift when you are worried or anxious. These feelings are usually caused by our attachment to either a particular outcome or to wanting to know exactly how things are going to turn out. We have the power to change our future. How many of our past worries never came to pass?”
from The Desk of MarDrag:
With all that is going on in our lives and the world right now, it is hard not to worry and have anxiety. But consider that…so much of that worry is anticipation about what might happen and how we will be able to handle it. We can spin many tales in our minds and hearts about the “worst case scenario”, and then hold on to it, creating deep anxiety and stress. And sometimes, that energy helps to create what we are most afraid of, because that is what is foremost in our minds.
So, consider the act of staying in the moment and not projecting into the future. In this very moment, are you ok? Is what you are worrying about still just a thought, or has it happened? Is there still a chance a solution can be found? Have you worried in the past about something that never happened? Do you worry to the point of damaging your quality of life?
There is a saying: For every problem there is an equal solution. A problem cannot exist without its counterpart, the solution, or then it would not be a problem. Believe that. Every problem absolutely has an equal solution. It is called the Law of Polarity. There is an opposite side to everything. If a problem exists…then the opposite of it, or solution, must also exist.
Now, focus on the Belief in the solution, instead of just focusing on the problem, and the channels open up so the solution can flow through. That is where the Power is. And in doing this, we eliminate all those moments, hours and days of anxiety and we retain some quality of life as we go through the difficulty.
Just because we can’t see a solution in the moment…does not mean it is not there. And just because we have a problem(s) does not mean we have to allow it to color every area of our life, or define us, or feel bad about ourselves, or lose our daily dose of joy or peace. Do not give the problem that much Power. Keep your Power for the solution.
Have Faith that the future you cannot see contains what you need and desire…and that energy will help to create those things rather than building on the problem. Have Faith that, just as you have done before, you will pass through your difficulty and thrive.
TO ALL YOU BE-YOU-TIFUL PEOPLE…
I SEE YOUR LIGHT SHINING TODAY!
BE YOUR MAGNIFICENT SELVES!
Go out into the world today and know this…
HAVE A GOOD AND POWERFUL MONDAY!!

A few weeks ago I wrote a blog about doing a “Daily Bucket List” to help keep our focus on our own lives, worlds, possibilities, and actions to help us through this difficult time. So today…I am posting my “Monday Bucket List”. What is on your “Daily Bucket List” today? Whatever it is, I hope it makes you happy and positive because that will help the world too. Blessings!
#1 ~ Repeat my mantra when negative or worrying thoughts take over my mind: “No more fight, Peace, Love, and Light” over and over until I have Peace of Mind.
#2 ~ Focus my thoughts to send out Positive Energy to the everyone and the world instead of angry, negative energy.
#3 ~ Tell a joke to make people laugh and feel good.
Wishing you all a wonderful, Peaceful Monday full of Love and good thoughts!
YOU ALL HAVE AN INNER LIGHT…WHETHER YOU FEEL IT, KNOW IT, OR USE IT…IT IS STILL THERE AND TAKES A SPECIAL PLACE IN THIS WORLD. WE NEED YOUR SPECIAL LIGHT…YOUR UNIQUE SELF…SHINE IT BRIGHT.
My wish is for you to start today knowing and feeling this and take it into your week to make it a great one. Blessings and Love To All!
Good Monday Morning! And happy start to a new year and a new week. I have alot to write about for this new beginning, but for this morning, I have a repost that will hopefully help us begin to focus on what is going to help get us through this tough and confusing time. After our mid-week funnies, I will have new posts that, I hope, will help…so look for them later in the week. Today…and one day at a time…Be You and Shine! Blessings!
I turn to the Rune’s today for the nugget of wisdom we will take with us into the week. As I draw “The Book of Runes” by Ralph Blum to me and plunge into the bag of stones, the Rune that comes to hand is:
Mannaz: “The Self”
Message (paraphrased): “The starting point is always with the Self. The essence is water. Only clarity, willingness to change, is effective now. A correct relationship to yourself is primary, for from it flows all possible correct relationships with others and with the Divine.
Remain modest – that is the Rune’s counsel. Regardless of how great may be your merit, be yielding, devoted and moderate, for then you have true direction for your way of life.
Be in the world but not of it. That is implicit here. And yet, do not be closed, narrow or judging. Remain receptive to impulses flowing from the Divine within and without. Strive to live the ordinary life in a non-ordinary way. Remember at all times what is coming to be and passing away, and focus on that which abides. This is the time of major growth and rectification and, as a rule, rectification must come before progress.
This is not a time to seek credit for accomplishments or to focus on results. Rather, be content to do your task for the tasks sake. This is more of a problem for those whose eyes are always on the goal than it is for those who have not forgotten how to play and can more easily lose themselves in doing the work, for its own sake. Herein lies the secret of experiencing a true present.
Balancing is called for now – the Self is required to balance the Self. Nothing in excess. Know thyself.”
from The Desk of MarDrag:
Of all the struggles we have in life, the greatest struggle is always with the Self. We have so many aspects of life that influence our thoughts and behavior, that we are constantly dialoguing with ourselves about what, when, who, how, and why. What Mannaz is telling us today is…that all of that “stuff” is not as important as the cultivating of the relationship of the Self to the Self. That should be our primary focus…because if our relationship to our Self is healthy and in Balance…then all else flows from that relationship, and flows “rightly”.
We are conditioned to think that if we just had “this”, or if “that’ would just happen, we would be content. With that as our focus, we are always looking outside and ahead of ourselves for something to make everything “right”. But that is a fallacy…for nothing can make us happy, content, and balanced…but ourselves and our relationship with our Self.
Mannaz says, “Be in the world, but not of it”…meaning…seek to know thyself with clarity and willingness to change and progress. Learn from the world around us, but do not become embedded in its confusion. Rise above the mundane and nurture the relationship with the Divine…whatever that means to us. Because it is there that we will find the answers we seek and the contentment too. And most importantly…the Balance. (Take on the task to connect or reconnect with our Spiritual exploration and work to aid us).
And finally…take on this task, and any task in life, for the tasks sake and not for the goal. It is in the doing the task that enlightenment and accomplishment comes…the goal is the reward. It is in focusing and being in the moment with our tasks that we experience the true feeling of being present in our lives…and we will not miss important clues and messages.
So the message today is…be present in every moment of every day, take life tasks on for the sake of the task and what we learn from it and how we accomplish it, and most of all…seek to cultivate, clarify, and focus on our relationship to the Self, which leads us to the Divine and Balance so that we can live our best life. Which is what we, ultimately, all seek.
Good Morning! I have been absent a few days and I have missed being here! I have been unwell, and though I am on the mend, I still cannot sit long at computer. In a day or two, I will be right as rain, fit as a fiddle, gay as a grasshopper…and will be back with fresh posts, and of course our Wednesday Humor. Thanks for being patient.
For today, I did not want to leave you without a Monday Message. This is one of my favorite…and I send it out to you today with all the Love in my Heart…because you are all amazing and should enter your day and week remembering that and living by it. Many Blessings and Love!!
