"The veils begin to lift, Mich, once defenses begin to fall.

I pulled a card from Isha Lerner's Triple Goddess Tarot for you. I hope it means something to you.
Your card is No. 15 Karmic Imprints.
It was American novelist Ray Bradbury who said:
My back garden has been buzzing this week ... quite literally.
The bees have come to visit and to feast on the nectar from the blossoms of my tree. It seems at the moment I have a permanent hum to seranade me.
I slipped outside this afternoon to capture some of my visitors ...
I am reminded of one of Rumi's quotes:
"You were born with potential.
You were born with goodness and trust.
You were born with ideals and dreams.
You were born with greatness.
You were born with wings.
You are not meant for crawling, so don't.
You have wings.
Learn to use them and fly."
What many of us forget as we make our way through life is that we are not limited beings but beings of infinite possibility.
Our minds contain the most glorious set of shimmering wings that, when allowed to fully expand, will allow us to soar high above any perceived limitations and fly free.
We must use them, however. We must let them spread fully by actively seeking the highest and best thought and feeling throughout the course of every day, by committing to our intentions fully and settling for nothing less.
In this way, we truly do learn to fly.
May you always remember to spread your wings and fly.
Courage, strength, fortitude. Power not arrested in the act of judgement, but passing on to further action, sometimes obstinacy.
This is a card of courage and energy. It represents both the Lion's hot, roaring energy, and the Maiden's steadfast will. The innocent Maiden is unafraid, undaunted, and indomitable. In some cards she opens the lion's mouth, in others she shuts it. Either way, she proves that inner strength is more powerful than raw physical strength. That forces can be controlled and used to score a victory is very close to the message of the Chariot, which might be why, in some decks, it is Justice that is card 8 instead of Strength. With strength you can control not only the situation, but yourself. It is a card about anger and impulse management, about creative answers, leadership and maintaining one's personal honor. It can also stand for a steadfast friend.

My base chakra is overactive. I am addicted to carbohydrates.
Physically I am overweight, and this leaves me feeling lethargic and heavy. I am not comfortable with my body image.
So, I am embarking on a journey. A beautiful, self-empowering and life enhancing journey.
Today I made a commitment to myself ~ I am only going to eat foods which are good for me.
No more short cuts and fast food.
Only foods which are nutritious, fresh and where possible organic.
I love myself enough to start eating healthy.
I'm starting to explore Isha Lerner's Power of Flower cards.
In case you didn't realise it by now, I'm a huge Isha fan.
It never ceases to amaze me how her cards sing to my soul.
This evening I pulled the Saguaro Cactus...
I'm really enjoying my garden at the moment.
The brids are singing, the weather is milder ... I'm loving Spring!
My roses are starting to bloom, they're so beautiful.
I love these longer days. Getting home when its still daylight, grabbing Trinity and going for a walk around the lake.
A setting sun dances across the surface of the lake, and the ducks and water hens calling to each other. Trinity runs to greet her four-legged friends.
I never tire of this beautiful place on my doorstep ...
15 minutes from my door is the beautiful meeting place
What is Your World View?

|You scored as Idealist|
Idealism centers around the belief that we are moving towards something greater. An odd mix of evolutionist and spiritualist, you see the divine within ourselves, waiting to emerge over time. Many religious traditions express how the divine spirit lost its identity, thus creating our world of turmoil, but in time it will find itself and all things will again become one.
I've been working a lot with Gayla Maxwell of late: her book, her meditation CD, and personal coaching.
On her Permission to Let Go cd, Gayla has recorded some wonderful guided mediations. My favourite is the Candle Meditation which goes for around 17 minutes, its relaxation techniques help me to reconnect to more core.
I'm enjoying this journey I've been taking with Gayla. I've grown in so many different directions.
Increasingly I am noticing the changes. I'm more confident, relaxed and at peace.
I am blessed.
I stumble upon a rubais by Rumi:
Everyone wants to be more radian, passionate and healthy! Eastern philosophies accept that vibrant chakra health is the key to all these desires and more -- and this book shows ou how the seven chakras can be tuned through Chakradance.
Music and dance have bee used throughout the ages for enjoyment and ceremony. Chakradance utilises our natural desire for movement to balance the energy centres. The result is an enjoyable method of fine-tuning your mind, body and soul.
Energy is a dynamic life force that begins with movement. Natalie and Douglas have discovered the ultimate way to build your energy levels through Chakradance and to generate the momentum that will bring your seven chakras into balance.
Chakradance offers greater well-being and harmony. Its completely stress-free, dynamic and lots of fun.
I sat with the Goddess this evening. The flame of an indigo candle dancing to her magic.
Sandalwood, rose and geranium scent the air.
She is present.
I am reminded of a quote I once read by Jackie Menzies in Goddess. Devine Energy.:
I love the beautiful words on the subject of blessing written by Pierre Pradervandand. I am thankful to the gentle soul who was inspired to make the movie below.
It takes 7 minutes to play, but its worth every second!
This week's Rainbow Dreams task asks how I ... dare to be the raptuous beauty in my heart.
