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

Recently I've been thinking about traveling more and immediately beliefs pop up, costs too much, too frivolous etc. Old indoctrination about lack, fear and practicality. But it's not money that creates, it's the power of imagination. The desire itself comes packaged with the means of fulfillment including money, people, opportunity and circumstance. Our beliefs in lack indicate our misunderstanding of the power and how it works. Creative Imagination is limitless. It's everywhere endlessly, infinitely free for our use. How do we describe the quality of imagination - runaway, wishful thinking etc? Mostly these show our ignorance. How about allowing your imagination to runaway to something wonderful? Are you impressing The Force with your desire? Instead of trying to figure out how to do it just imagine yourself doing or having whatever it is.


The Equinox/Full Moon energy is reminder of Somewhere In Time vignettes , making me a bit lonely for those I shared experiences with.  I'm grateful for retirement allowing me to live the solitary life, which in the past I believed I chose but know now I was chosen vis a vis no such thing as free will!  It was a harsh, often dark windy path that led to the present,  where I'm happy In Service To Others.  Join us. 


What's in your DNA?  While exploring family history on Ancestry.com I connected with family and discovered the Celtic  heritage passed down from Granma, not Granpa.  Another big surprise was that both family names  were prominent English/Irish Roma aka gypsy!  Who knew? Of course, this isn't the only DNA/perceived past life influence that I've written about. In case you might wish for your own recall, beware.  All my experiences, were harsh, including this go-round.  We pay a price to join in family group incarnations and also, your third eye chakra may tap into more than you wanted to know?   Should you be here on The Mission, you may have your moments when you might prefer you never heard of any of it. . .  find your group -  it's alright.


Since the "Go Ninja" warning, I've had feedback from those receiving their own version.  Some ask how I'm responding?  As always, I'm staying connected via intuitive bridge/Solar Plexus/gut chakra and advise others to do the same.  I'm spending most of my day in my Home Temple. . . . try it.


What if I told you that your every conflict, disappointment, struggle, or challenge with others and yourself, was merely a manifestation of what's going on within your own thinking. Would you go there first to fix, mend, and allay?
Yeah, you might miss the drama. 


Image result for palo santo uses  I love this!  Its name literally means holy     wood, and it is just that. When it is burned, the smoke is believed to have both medicinal and therapeutic healing power. Traditionally, it is burned by Incas, indigenous people of the Andes, Shamans and medicine people for spiritual purifying, energy cleansing and healing.


Although Mars Retrograde  went  stationary direct, we still have  shadow period which may activate your warrior persona, a reminder the symbology of  Mars the god of war. Here at The Cottage, it revived a chronic  issue  so if/when this happens, choose your battles/save yourself first.


With Mars in post shadow phase until October 8, you may be experiencing tailender backlashes! If so then choose no response.  Actually this is the best choice about most things -- don't claim it!  Assert your dominion and move on. 


I'm publishing this in case you can relate -- It really helps to know others healed/are healing their broken spirit -  a lifetime challenge for some of us. Admin Kay

My spirit has been broken.Until my late 20s, I was just that: a broken spirit. I lived my childhood without love, emotional support, indeed, many times without the necessities of life. I was introverted, full of shame (undeserved) and believed that I was one of those people who could not engender love. I was alone.
