XVII: Silence
Osho Zen Tarot
03/31/2015
Minneapolis, MN

The silent mirror like receptiveness of a star filled night with a full moon is reflected in the misty lake below. The face in the sky is deep in meditation, a goddess of the night who brings depth, peace and understanding. – Now is a very precious time. It will be easy for you to rest inside, to plump the depths of your own inner silence to the point where it meets the silence of the universe. – There’s nothing to do, nowhere to go, and the quality of your inner silence permeates everything you do. It might make some people uncomfortable, accustomed as they are to all the noise and activity of the world. Never mind; seek out those who can resonate with your silence, or enjoy your aloneness. Now is the time to come home to yourself. the understanding and insights that come to you in these moments will be manifested later on, in a more outgoing phase of your life.

My morning meditation took two tries, but it was worth it in the end.  If I get to it before Mischief wakes up fully, she naps through the meditation, but if I don’t then she’s scampering around the room, doing her little “mrew?”  So the first one was interrupted by scampering fur ball.

So when I started my second one, it went very smoothly.  Ganesha sits as Guardian of my Higher Plain (I’m not sure quite why, just when I first started doing this particular guided mediation he was the first there, and has stayed for the most part).  After I reached the Higher Plain, I had a guide draped in a white cloak, and radiating white gold energy.  S/he said that they would answer my static as well as the meaning full questions, and we walked together in the meadow.  Day to Day decisions are sometimes the “static” questions.  Which we went through.

But the meaningful guidance was.  “Be at peace with yourself, Be at peace with the Divine, Be at peace with the universe, and be at peace with your thoughts.”  Everything is happening as it should, and for the greater good.  Random word in this was “grateful”.

My two I am‘s that I saw I would be doing today were “grateful” and “something wonderful”.  There is also the thought of using the unused portions of paper from the project and making little positive affirmations,sayings or words, and leaving them in random places out in the world.  Things like Be at Peace, God is with you, Something wonderful is going to happen, You are perfect, You are my sunshine, etc.  How wonderful would that be to find that on the bus on a bad day?

Hope every one enjoys their Tuesday!  Happy Spring!

Sunny Wonderful Walks and Breazy Gratefuls: March 30

How was everybody’s Monday?  Did you have an awesome day?  Did you get a massage?  Go for a run?  Did the Alarm go off right?  Were you running for the bus?  Stuck in fast forward for the day?  Did you get a breather?  How was your day?  Was it wonderful?  Did you see or experience any grateful moments?

As mentioned in my morning meditation, I created another I am message:

wpid-20150330_153841.jpg

I am Serving those who Serve Red White and Blue.

This goes in the direction of where I want to point my practice, which is working with Military Veterans and their families.  It may also include people who serve in Law Enforcement and Safety Services.

So what happened that was wonderful:  I walked for the first time to work today, well first time this year.  Took about an hour for 2.6 miles.  I got really warm, it was warmer than I was thinking, got to 65 degrees F.  I also saw some green buds on shrubs. Signs of Spring?

What happened today that I’m Grateful for?

1. My roommate (made dinner)
2. I had my interview (it went really well)
3. My homemade nature photography cards (made good interview thank you cards)
4. My family
5. Metro Transit
6. Whole Foods (for providing me the opportunity to interview)
7. My clients (for helping me make a decision)
8. 62 degrees, 60 tomorrow and 70 on Wednesday
9. My strange cat
10. My roommate’s strange cat.

Happy Monday all!
G’night!

Tarot of the Day: V No-thingness

wpid-20150330_094250.jpgV: No-thingness
Osho Zen Tarot
03/30/2015
Minneapolis, MN

Being ‘in the gap’ can be disorienting and even scary. Nothing to hold on to, no sense of direction, not even a hint of what choices and possibilities might lie ahead. But it was just this state of pure potential that existed before the universe was created. All you can do now is to relax into this no-thingness…fall into this silence between the words…watch this gap between the outgoing and incoming breath. And treasure each empty moment of the experience. Something sacred is about to be born. 

I found it a little difficult to meditate this morning.  Thoughts of the day’s past kept coming into it.  The clear images that I got in the meditation, were Ganesha, who sits at the top of my Ascension to my Higher Self, he actually hugged me today.  I used the Reiki Symbols to ground when things got difficult to center.  My new ‘I am’ I need to make today is I am … Serving those who serve (red white and blue).  One of the main client pools I wish to work with is the Armed Forces and their families.  My practice has a standing 20% off for Veterans of the Armed Forces (active and retired w/ valid ID) and their families. 

I am in the between, between the one breath and the next, as I search for something that can fill the void where my finances are lacking.  Which can be a very uncomfortable place to be.  I have an interview today at Whole Foods.  I am contemplating putting an application in at Aldis.  But today I need to create an I am piece, and just BE.

Let it go, So I can grow.

Sunny Wonderfuls and Loving Gratefuls: March 29th

How was everybody’s weekend?  Did you see some one you loved?  Did you have a good time?  Was work great? Was the weekend great?  Did your furry animals have fun?  Or were they full of Mischief?

My something wonderful was my Dad coming to visit.  Haven’t seen him in a bit, and he’s been on my mind for a while.  He’s been diagnosed with Stage 1 prostrate cancer.  So he’s exploring his options, and we’ll see. So he’s going down to see my new nephew for Easter.  I’ll be going to spend time with my Sister and her family this Easter.

Tarot of the Day: Page of Clouds: Mind

Page of Clouds: Mind
Osho Zen Tart
Minneapolis, MN
03/28/2015

Page of Clouds: Mind: This is what happens when we forget that the mind is meant to be a servant, and start to allow it to run our lives. The head is filled with mechanisms, the mouth is ranting and raving, and thew hole surrounding atmosphere is being polluted by this factory of arguments and opinions. “But wait,” you say. “The mind is what makes us human, it’s the source of all progress, all great truths.” If you believe that, try and experiment: go into your room, shut the door, turn on a tape recorder, and give yourself total permission to say whatever is on you mind’. If you really allow it to all come out without any censorship or editing, you’ll be amazed at the amount of rubbish that comes spewing forth. The Page of Clouds is telling you that somebody, somewhere, is stuck in ‘a head trip’. Take a look and make sure it isn’t you.

My mind has been worrying. It tends to worry, get anxious, doubt when there is lack. I’m trying, really I am, grounding them into the earth so I can

I can feel the emotion be released when I say “let go let grow” over and over again. This morning with my morning mediation, I was releasing a lot of gray sticky gunk into the water, and I felt bad, but the Mother Goddess pointed and indicated that the water was already filtering it, and it was going from what was coming out to gold white light.

So I’m working on it. I have plans to work on my “I am” board today, and do some reading.

Sunny Windy Wonderful and Grateful blowing: March 28th

So How was everybodies Saturday?  Here in Minneapolis it was 40, sunny, and windy.  It’s like the new norm, Sunny or Cloudy and breezy/windy.

I walked to the library today.  It was a bit chilly for sandals, but I have got to break them in some time. I started reading a book.  After when the subject comes up 3x, sooner or later, the universe is going to come by with a 2×4.

Something wonderful: today it was playing with mischief and the little red dot. 🙂

Grateful:

1. Metro Transit
2. The Library
3. Mischief
4. Dick Sutphen’s guided meditation
5. Sandra Ingerman and her books
6. a cleanish apartment
7. The opportunity to open windows
8. Walking sticks

Tarot of the Day: XV Conditioning

wpid-20150328_105300.jpg

Tarot of the Day: 03/28/2015
XV: Conditioning
Osho Zen Tarot

This card recalls an old Zen story, about a lion who was brought up by sheep and who through he was a sheep until an old lion captured him and took him to a pond, where he showed him his own reflection. Many of us are like this lion – the image we have of ourselves comes not from our own direct experience but from the opinions of others. A ‘personality’ imposed from the outside replaces the individuality that could have grown from within. We become just another sheep in the herd, unable to move freely, and unconscious of our own true identity. It’s time to take a look at your own reflection in the pond, and make a move to break out of whatever you have been conditioned by others to believe about yourself. Dance, run, jog, do gibberish – whatever is needed to wake up the sleeping lion within.

I did a morning meditation this morning. Taking into account of what’s going on in my life, and what came up.  This card actually echos an Author’s Note I read in Soul Retrieval by Sandra Ingerman this morning.  On page xii “Our original true essence is forgotten and replaced by the projections put upon us by family, peer, and authority figures.”

In my morning meditation, which is a guided meditation with the Higher Self done by Dick Sutphen (about 30 min long), several things came up.  Everyday things like bills, cleaning, getting out of the apartment, but also create more art, limit my online time, Start reading more (not online), How many hours I may need from WF, should or should I not let go of CBC, don’t hide in my cave, Try to find some one that does a particular program through my networks, continue to keep my business page active, in constant contact with the my FB and linked in, fill my board, before buying more cork, etc.

Sometimes it helps to do a morning meditation, and get your thoughts in order. Some of this is static, but some of this is the inner creative self, that is screaming and waving her hands trying to get my attention.
