''The elf-queene, with hir joly compaignie, Daunced ful ofte in many a grene mede.” Geoffrey Chaucer "The Wife of Bath’s Tale"


You don't need to change the world; you need to change yourself.  And you have to do it in your own way because only you have the possibility of knowing yourself.  
Don Miguel Ruiz 


A poplar catch-phrase is "Living Large", usually meaning to enjoy the best of life but following my pathways I discovered the art and joy of Living Small and was surprised to find it's been the most creative period of my life. When health issues forced early retirement The Universe generously provided everything  I needed to  live in retreat working behind the scenes, so right for me.  Less is more.


Some are rushing to complete plans for Thanksgiving while others have no plans.  Either way, let's take a time out to appreciate the essence of the season, grateful for everyone and everything. Stay present.


Are we influenced by archetypes?  Maybe it's that or is it our DNA/ancestors?  I've written about this, and as time passes I'm more in touch/aware of my alter ego, that lives somewhere in England, parallel, not 'past'.  It brings to mind a discussion with a networker years ago, re could our entire lives be  being imagined by someone somewhere?  What do you think?


When our goals are elusive, take a time out to reassess our efforts. We may realize we let goals die on the vine because we were ambivalent about our choice or even didn't really want it.   Where is your Attention? We will attract what we have an aptitude for, that integrates natural ability with doable goals Right For Us.  Whether we realize it or not, what we're doing and where we are was our goal at some place in time.  Embrace it and move on when ready.


Be grateful for the home you have, knowing that at this moment, all you have is all you need.
 Sarah Ban Breathnach


Reminder to self:  It's simple really. . .Attention creates reality so focus on what you want and love.


Tim McGraw“We all take different paths in life, but no matter where we go, we take a little of each other everywhere.”


Should things not be going your way, name it and claim it! Sometimes we forget we are the writer, producer and star of this movie we call life, and fail to use our power.  It's a vibrational universe so attract what you desire by your thoughts and words.  Cease bemoaning what is and beget what you want!


How would you describe yourself? Does your self identity align with your Major Purpose?  If not then one may be  blocking the other.  For instance, one networker professes to be helping people (her MP) but scatters her power/Attention on  pursuits out of sync and problematic.   One way to discover a transparent identity is by assessing the degree of egoic mind that may be running the show - it takes a lot of energy to maintain the ego driven personality seeking power.  


Most are familiar with The Ripple Effect, meaning all we say and do ripples out affecting reality, so they  dedicate to The Law of Attraction for positive situations and circumstance.  Another advanced version is  Ho'Oponopono practiced behind the scenes, beyond talk or words, because  reality reflects beliefs, indoctrination and ancestors old data. Join me to practice forgiveness  and change the world.
Philippians 4:8
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.


A recent roadtrip to Arkansas provided a welcome respite to daily routine and renewed the vibrational frequency associated with the beneficial crystal energy. The beautiful sunny weather was the perfect backdrop to restore and, refresh the Arkansas/Atlantis electromagnetic force-field that attracts so many of us called to participate in the crystal awakening going on.  .  .  . and rallying to the uniquely Arkansas  shout-out "Go Hogs"!!


It's a busy time of the year for some,  preparing for guests over the holidays, planning menus and shopping for gifts.  Others plan on no plans, for whatever reason - no blame just the game of life playing out. Seniors that outlived their loved ones, soldiers on duty, those terminally ill that won't make it and then there's societies misfits. . . . join me using HoOponopono or other tech to process and release the data for all of us.


As the holiday season  begins, let's savor every moment and make 2015 memories  the best yet.  Treasure the traditions  and maybe add new ones integrating your signature energy with the ancestors to pass on for those that follow.   Get inspired, get creative and make it as special as you are.


I live in a plain nondescript house on a pond, that I call *'the cottage' because of the smallish size and decor.  Shortly after building, I glimpsed  a pod of Angels that live on the pond so I've considered naming it Angel Pond Cottage but because the inside decor is my version of  English cottage/Victoriana with touches of roses, not too fine, I think of it as Rose Cottage.  The jury is still out on an official name so eight years later it's still 'the cottage' here but my alter ego surely lives in Rose Cottage somewhere in England, a la "Planet Two" . . . sigh.
*the cottage: So maybe the pond cottage is already named - The Cottage........who knew?


I always loved this time of the year, coming home after school to the aroma of the fire in the wood stove and Mama's fruitcakes baking, a sure sign the holidays were on the way.   She  always made things special for us and besides cooking, sewing, gardening and more, she inspired our imaginations with a sense of history, travel and adventure.  .  . it was a privilege.
