Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have – life itself. Walter Anderson
Sadness is but a wall between two gardens Khalil Gibran
There comes a time in our lives, when we believe we are truly angry at this person. Look at everything he/she does ! We have every right to be truly self-righteously down right mad. Then something clicks within us. We see inside this person’s needs, insecurities, suddenly we aren’t mad anymore. We are very very sad, disappointed, heart-broken at the turn of events. We think , how in the world did this whole thing go to hades in a hand-basket so fast. Yesterday, we wanted to scream , kick this person, bat him/her in the head, then today, the immense sadness just flows over . We sit in meditation, beating ourselves up as we know somehow we created this situation, the pain, the knowledge that there is no hope just overwhelms the soul. Gathering the strength in our entire being, we have to make a choice about our next step. This is where we have the choice. Okay, this event is bad. Yet we have a choice here. We can chose to sit down, wallow in sadness, in hurt, in despair. We can instead, find a way out of the pain, to find answers that will help, guide, turn our hearts back to love. Why Deb? The reason is because if we don’t find a way to get ourselves back to a soft heart, we will harden our heart, we will become as the very person, that we so despise. There are two gardens in the lives of two people, we can stay sad building the wall so high we can’t see over it to reach the dream, or we can find happiness in moving toward the other garden.
Animal totems: Titmouse : Bro titmouse sings cheerfully the song of truth. Although sometimes the truth hurts, this totem opens the mysteries of the mind, so that all truth comes to light. He will bring balance, open all the perceptions so we can look to finding the small glimmer of light to give us the courage, the persistent to keep going toward the goal, the dreams.

Moonzies preferred friends: Every day I ask spirit what to do. On Fridays I will be sending a second email with products because after I wrote that I would be sending them with these emails anymore, many many wrote that they DO want this. when we try to please everyone, we please no one including ourselves. S0 as I try to have the best customer service possible, I will be sending out weekly specials on Fridays.
That being said, I have had some problems with a batch of candles. The wicks were defective. The company I bought the wicks from has refunded me, I have a different style so if you had ordered and received a candle that did not work properly, I will reship you a candle for just the cost of shipping. There was also a problem with some clasps on chakra bracelets. If you ordered one that broke the same offer applies, I will ship you another for just the cost of shipping. Email me. Don’t think it will hurt my feelings. We have to rely on other manufactures for some of these things, and in life, there are flawed products. Nothing is absolutely perfect in the earthly world. Balance is the key. love to all.
