The pessimist complains about the wind. The optimist expects it to change. The realist adjusts the sails .- William A.Ward
People may hear your words, but they feel your attitude. John C. Maxwell
A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events and outcomes. It is a catalyst and it sparks extraordinary results. Wade Boggs
The man smiled as he brought up points to us to consider in our path. Yet the smile didn’t reach his eyes, his sadness, his disbelief in the words he said smacked us more in the face, than any words of comfort he may have given. Anger boiled underneath his surfaces, with disillusionment not far behind. As spiritualists, we find it easy to look past these attitudes, these energies to the heart, the spirit of the real person. Yet the world, others who are still finding the way to being in tune, empathetic, seem to run from this energy most often misunderstanding the reasons for holding back. We try. We want to be positive energies of light, love, and peace in the world. Still our own trials, heartaches have created the feeling that we will fail. So we believe we will fail. The key is to each time an angry, hurt, bitter thought comes into our head, we push it out. We shake our finger at the dark imp trying to take over our real person. We say no, as if the energies offered us an illegal drug or poison. We purposely, determinedly replace that negative thought with a positive one. Yes we know this is hard work, yes, it takes thought, discipline, but as time goes on, habits form to become positive. The dream is right here, trying to cut through the junk. Allow it to come.
Animal totems: alligator: Bro alligator is strong. His totem is fast. His totem reminds us to show our true inner being as he is the keeper of ancient secrets hidden deep within the swamps of life we have allowed ourselves to enter into to lie in the muck. His totems reminds us to move fast to change our attitudes, while his medicine shares the regeneration of wisdom and truths.
Lady Moon starts her Waxing Gibbous phase with the illumination of 47%. She starts the 2nd quarter at 2:51 pm est today, as the Sun Father Sol reaches the 15 degrees in scorpio. The Samhain festival time still continues with the cross quarter day! Keep the celebration with pears preserves, or apple butter with our scones and tea!
I am off today as usual on Monday mornings as usual. I will return this evening as usual. As we head toward the holidays, family, school programs, etc may call for variation of hours, but I will be here every day at some hours of the day. May the faires dance around each of us today.
