I have been keeping pinches off of the hedge at work in these vases on my desk. That is the big green leaves you see. When they start to fade, I go on my break to pinch off some more. Green chrysanthemums happen to be one of my most favorite flowers. Usually you find them added to cut flower bouquets at the market, but I saw that there was a bundle of only them and nothing else. So, I bought them and added to my shrub leaves.
Creating a Space.
It has become increasingly important to me to learn this art of mindfulness and being intentional with your time, space, thoughts and words. Creating a space that brings nature, art, symbolic tokens, music –is paramount to a day that is like a prayer and a way to create intimacy with the Spirit that is fulfilling and recharging. Spiritual symbolism and Spirit messages are my most favorite things. To tell a story without words is to speak to the spirit, like groanings too deep for one to understand on the conscious level.
For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. -Romans 8:26
Today I was given a vision that has meant more to me than any other. This week I have been speaking things to my soul, things in prayer, and to the Universe that are extremely powerful. Today as I was speaking them and praying over situations, I was shown my body and it was as if I was looking inward and into myself behind my rib cage and where my heart would be. There it was like everything broke open for a fountain. It started to well up and spout upwards and flow down like a geyser. It was interesting that as I was engaged in this vision and watching the water flow down I realized the water collecting all at the bottom was thick black oil.
The fount within is the greatest riches one could ever attain to. Contrary to lore, it is the Holy Grail. The journey to find it is within.
It is the fountain of youth and a chalice fit for the Gods.
The Kingdom is within and the Kingdom is at hand. Extend your arm and reach within. Drink deeply from it.
Don’t take anything personally. Haven’t I wrestled with that so intensely? Today it was as if I simply was a witness to the situation. If you have never read Don Miguel Ruiz’s books, you should.
“What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.”-Don Miguel Ruiz
If anyone is in a pattern of harm, they are asleep. They are unaware of self and without self love. No one who loves their self will ever seek to harm another in any way. They are governed by fear. It really is not about you, and it really is all about you.
“It is time for you to hear the music of the spheres, little one.”
What peace, what great renown! I was amazed at how I felt today. I was amazed at how He was speaking to me and responding to me throughout the day. I saw so many things.
