EGBOK ~ Really! ~ Repost



Did reading that make you giggle just a little bit and say whaaa…? It has a good sound, like something you want to repeat a couple of times because it rolls off your tongue in a cheeky kind of way. (See what I did there?) Anyway, I learned this at a self-help seminar many years ago, when they were all the rage, but it stuck with me and I have used it many times over the years. I do not know if there is an “author” or inventor of this little gem to give credit to, I do not know the origin of it, but if there is, consider yourself credited and thanked for this little quip that may sound funny but carries a potent message. It seemed a good thing to say today.





Repeat this affirmation as many times as you need to today…and pass it on. It is easy to say when you can’t get all the words out yourself. And, it can make a difference.




And Believe in the


of Hope, Love, Unity, Kindness, and Patience.

Blessings and Love to You All!!

Musings On A Musing

Sun 1

I rise early, before the sun. I love the early morning hours before the world wakes…when you can almost see, and definitely feel, the break between worlds as we shift from the darkness of night and slumber into the light of day and wakefulness. As I cling to the gossamer threads of dreamtime…I watch the uncurling of the fingers of dawn as the sun rises and splashes its river of light across the horizon. And as the last threads of night dissolve with the power of the light, I too shed the cloak of darkness and step into that light and join the unfolding day.

It was in this transition time yesterday morning that I sat in my favorite chair, listening to the stillness of the dawn and enjoying the quiet before the bustle of a holiday morning took over the house. It was Thanksgiving Day, and I sat pondering the concept of a national holiday, a day of giving thanks for all that we have in our lives…even if there is a great deal missing…we still have a great deal to be thankful for.

And, it was at that moment that I realized that…all across the country, no matter the time zone, no matter that economic structure of the household, no matter the number of people, no matter the reasons…but that most every household was, at that moment, beginning their day of feast and revelry…all in the name of Giving Thanks. And no matter how large or how small the crop of reasons were…that we were all coming together in the common goal of Gratitude. A unity of common thought and action…an inclusive cloud of empowered thought emitting puffs of positive, wonderful grateful energy.

What a rush the dawn must have felt yesterday morning!

Sun 4

AND…if one ever feels alone in this life again…one only needs to remember that at any given moment, in any place or time zone on this planet, there is at least one other…if not many…feeling the same things we are feeling at the same time…and that has to count for something. There is an unspoken…yet unbroken…unity to this world, to we people, that will never, ever leave us Alone.

Sun 6

We are One…and One for All.


Rune For A Monday


Welcome Back to Monday! I hope everyone had a lovely long holiday weekend! After time off and celebration…it is difficult to get back into the flow of “regular” life…so to start our Monday off this week, I was drawn to pulling a Rune (from my set and book by Ralph Blum)…and here is the symbol that presented itself with its message for the week:


Laguz: Flow, Water, That Which Conducts

Message: “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 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.”

from The Desk of MarDrag:

Well…there is most definitely a pattern emerging from the messages we have sought these past couple of weeks. This is the third in as many weeks that speak about Cleansing, Water, and Flow. I think a tide is turning…and we are being counseled to “go with the flow”…instead of against it. Laguz talks about the ebb and flow of life…as well as the active forces around us…and tells us to become as fluid as the water.

There may be changes or upheavals in our lives right now…but Laguz says we are not being called to evaluate them or understand them (just yet)…but to flow with them as they merge into our lives. Rather than trying to understand all that is going on, or change it…we should spend our energy on examining what holds value to us, and reorganizing our priorities. It calls on us to be in contact with our intuitive side…listening to that Inner Wiser Voice…and turning to the study of the spiritual aspect of life so that we may be in better touch with the Self. When the Self “relates rightly” with the Self…a deeper connection with our Spirit, Truth, and Power is created. A unity occurs…within and with the Self. It is in that unity that we find exactly what we desire to fulfill our needs.

Cleansing, water, tears and flow are the message here…so continue to cleanse yourself of negative energy and thought…rinse them away in the water…allow the cleansing tears to come…and go with the flow of what is happening (for now)…until the energy transforms…as it always does. Seek answers in the spiritual realm…because understanding in the physical is not within our grasp at the moment.

We are being called to Trust our paths…and the Wisdom of God and the Higher Powers and the Universe…and to take care of our own rhythms that guide us on that path. Be Present, See to our needs…and all, in the end, will be well.
