living the dream

“May I have the courage today
To live the life that I would love,
To postpone my dream no longer
But do at last what I came here for
And waste my heart on fear no more.”
~ John O’Donohue

be-kind-whenever-possible

Traditional Reiki Principles

For today only
anger not, worry not.
Be grateful and humble.
Do your work with appreciation.
Be kind to all beings

Word. Vibration. Manifestation

of money

money is an agreement about an exchange of energy…

not good or bad..what is my agreement..intention is the direction

attention vs intention..what is pulling my attention away from my intention

we have to be disciplined with out intention.

I deserve to thrive

I have to come to an agreement with my own soul that I deserve to thrive. I deserve to thrive..

THRIVING IS MY NATURAL STATE OF BEING

what is it that is grabbing my attention( worries, doubts, fears, stories, past) I must be willing to dig below the surface to release that which is holding my attention. Stories about worthiness. Release what has it’s grip on me. Be willing to put myself in the environment in which I can thrive.

Put myself in the Divine Flow…if I am willing to thrive…I will thrive.

Word. Vibration.Manifestation.

when we speak the word..we speak the heart of our intention..the I am is the word

I am a divine manifestation of the intent of the universe

Four Steps:

1. discipline..mindful…keep focused on what my intention is ( hear that and see that, but that is not the divine truth of who I am, and come to intention)

2. wisdom: allow innate wisdom to come forward..simply being on purpose in the moment..does doing this thing keep me in line with divine intent..the innate wisdom answers immediately

3. love: everything happens with love..fall in love with my divine intent..don’t have to know how that looks..be in it in the moment..most attractive in the moment..doesn’t matter what you do, sell the love..

4. surrender: let go of egoic desire..

I am a powerful spiritual being and I know who I am. I release my old impressions, experiences and ideas, that I have accepted as mine even though they belong to others. I accept only my own view of money. I have the power of my own intention to create the the life choose for myself, I choose now to bring my own clear intention into manifestation in my life. And so it is.

Rain Rain and more Rain

Day one on the peninsula and it is raining..a lot. I don;t mind the rain so much but Chris does and feels it is a personal..the universe taking it out on him.

It’s not like we can change the weather. I really don’t the rain bother me. I have my boots 🙂

We headed off Bay of Fundy side of the providence, and the fabled tides were evident. I made Chris stop in Sanford so we could see the smallest drawbridge in the world.

It was built so the fisherman wouldn’t have to walk all the way around to get from one side of the harbor to the next. The other shots are from the same harbor.

Everything seems to be covered in this rust colored moss.

We stopped for lunch in Digby, I had the scallops because that’s what Digby is know for. They came with turnips! Chris had pie..coconut cream. He was still grumpy about the rain and about his phone not working. Pie is a cure-all.

After lunch we headed to Anapolis Royal, a very pretty coastal town. Truth be told there are many pretty coastal towns!!

We stopped and had Solomon Gundy and a beer (Chris had lunch this time) at The Olde Towne Pub, the smallest bar in Nova Scotia. It really wasn’t that small..

in fact it was rather average sized. I guess by Nova Scotia standards it was small.

Chris is happy here because his phone is now working.

We then headed to the beautiful botanical gardens in town. They were lovely. They had so many beautiful flowers, but I have no pictures because it raining so hard I was afraid to take my camera out. You’ll have to check out Chris’s blog.

We headed toward Halifax, the rain was just too much..we did stop here and there to take a few pictures.

Captain’s Log 6.20.15

Left for Nova Scotia before noon after getting our house/dog sitter settled in. I have a peace of mind knowing Luka is at home and not in a kennel…it really helps.

Heading off to Portland to catch the ferry, we were diverted off the route by a police barricade…leading to a beautiful Lake.

We got into town with more than enough time for lunch and a little shopping and sightseeing.

We took the ferry Nova Star out of Portland and into Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. I took these shots as we left the port. I played with the many features on my camera (I have an Olympus Penn)..

The accommodations on the ferry were what I expected, but I got bit by something in the night as did Chris. The food on the ferry was expensive, especially because Chris is vegetarian and I’m pescatarian..not a lot of options for Chris. The ship wasn’t full and the personnel seemed overly abundant at time..eating dinner(buffet style) staff hovered over us and literally grabbed our plates the instant we were done. It felt very rushed.

I slept well enough, and getting off the ferry and through customs was uneventful..Nova Scotia here we come!

As we told the customs guard, “We want to see everything!” He said that wasn’t possible in 7 days..alas
