What’s Rubbed Off
I have gone to more weddings, including, of course, my oldest daughter’s over this past year, than I have gone to in my entire life. I think something is significantly rubbing off on me related to something new.
In case you need a refresher, the rhyme goes, “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue . . . “. It feels in this moment that this rhyme is permanently implanted in my brain.
Old I’ve got, borrowed I’ve got – both more than I would otherwise choose. Blue . . . well, we’ll leave that one alone unless we’re talking about the sparkling ocean, its waves crashing against the rocks at Good Harbor Beach in Gloucester where I royally escaped with my two singly surviving daughters after THE WEDDING the end of August . . . or the color associated with the fifth chakra, center for speaking your truth and being your integrity.
The Universe Loves New
Back to new. The universe loves new. I think it instantly registers with possibility and freed space to offer something else.
This is what is happening to me lately in the wake of these weddings I keep attending. New ideas, relationships, creations, work, rituals, celebrations . . . I see this wave riding out to a metaphorical sea with its own sparkle that I think hasn’t graced me in a long, long time. Go figure.
The Power of Grateful Completion
I am beyond grateful for the Thanksgiving eve in 1971 over thirty years ago when I married my late husband. I’m grateful to be alive.
I’m grateful to have “come through”. I’m grateful to have the honor to give to and share with others. I’m grateful to be able to accept all that I receive simply and graciously, trusting the opportunities will continue, especially those that we all must face as our lives complete themselves.
To Feel and Envision Light
The days are very full, but no longer hurry by. I think something new has sparkled within me in this time of greatest approaching darkness in my neck of the woods, the winter solstice.
I feel and envision light.
Give From a Full, Trusting Heart
I invite you to give from a full, trusting heart as we move into this season, to create inviting space in the wake of knowing how to offer beyond what you think you have or need to hang onto, so the universe can bring you something new.
Seek a strong, starry night as the cold dawns, and clearly wish what your secret heart desires. Laugh, and sing an old tune, and turn around and do something you haven’t done in ten years – or something you’ve never done that takes only you by surprise while your heart sings.
The Power of Creation in the Space Between
It’s about giving and receiving, as your breath never stops whispering.
In the space between, though, creation occurs.
