Today’s Wise Words

Well as I made my way into work this morning I was listening to the radio an Pink’s song “F’ ing Perfect” came on and it got me thinking about how we all,  at some point and time in our lives do exactly what she says in her song. We allow ourselves to feel inferior and we allow those feelings to get us down.

We allow ourselves to feel this way. It’s not something others make us do.. the decision to feel “less than” is ours. It’s those little voices in our head .. nothing at all to do with the other person. We allow it. For whatever reason.. we do this to ourselves. Sure there are those that don’t help matters.. they see that we do this to ourselves and they take advantage and behave in a way that makes us continue doing it even more. Still… at the end of the day it is we, that do it to ourselves.

I was going to write a long blog about this and explain how I have done it as well and at times still struggle with those voices…. I was going to tell you all about my experiences in abusive relationships and how I managed to get out of that seemingly never-ending loop of abuse.

But then….. I was browsing my Facebook wall and came upon this video and thought … you know what… let’s get out of our heads today and have some fun instead. These guys are sure entertaining.. lol.. I know it started my day with a smile .. I hope it will yours as well.


New Blog Addition

For those of you who don’t know… I’ve created another blog that is geared toward Halloween only. Check it out at

It will contain how-to’s for Halloween props and decorations along with some Halloween poems, stories and other fun stuff and ideas!

Halloween is my favorite day of the year and has been since I was a kid. It’s that one day a year where you can be as crazy as you want and let your imgination soar, so of course it’s my all time favorite!

I hope you take a moment to stop by and have a look around. There isn’t much there at the moment but over the next few weeks it will be growing.

Many Blessings,

Red, Yellow, Brown and Gold

Red, Yellow, Brown and Gold
The days grow short, the nights grow cold.

Magic shadows dance across the land.
Some even come out and touch my hand.

The winds now blow, sending a chill through the air.
The leaves fall gently to the ground without a care.

Summer has come to it’s end.
Autumn blessing to you I now send.

May the colors of the land fill you with a joyous delight.
May the Autumn fires keep you warm and cozy through the night.

As the darkness grows do not worry and do not fret.
For you’ll be blessed with every golden sunset.

You’ll be in my prayers and all my wishes.
Think of every falling leaf as angel kisses.

Safe you’ll be and forever you’ll know….
That my magic shall follow and protect you wherever you go.

Now wave goodbye to Summer’s end….
Say hello to Autumn with a smile and let the season know you are a friend.

Many Blessings,

The 4 Cards Before Me

4 Cards lay before me and instead of looking at them separately, I will give you the message they give us together as a whole.

The cards before me are:  Security, Fertility, Endurance and Integrity

When we feel secure we are more fruitful in our actions. We do more and accomplish more when we feel that we are in our safe place.

Then moving on to endurance, we are given a message to not let the fires within us go completely out. They may be doused a bit but the embers continue to glow and burn inside us. This tells us that we have what it takes to endure whatever it is life throws at us.

When we have endured hardships we come out of it with much more than material things. We come out of it with knowledge, growth and the knowing that we can overcome.

One of the most important things we can do as we travel our path is to maintain our integrity. Nothing hurts our souls and our growth as much as not acting with integrity.  You have to be your own judge of character and as the old saying goes,  “do unto others…” if you follow that rule… you surly cannot go wrong.


Many Blessings,

The Path Alone

WP_20140521_037Today I feel inclined to speak a bit about the road of life we each walk (Our Path).

I know some are having a tough time dealing with the lonliness you feel on your path. The truth is each path is a lonely one. We each have our own individual path to travel. Some paths may be similar but we all walk our own.

When there are things going on in our lives to keep us busy and preoccupied we don’t notice much about how alone we are on the path.

When things are calm and quiet,  you notice that yes indeed this path is yours and yours alone and there is no one else who can walk  that path for you. That is when those feelings of lonliness overcome us and we begin to feel isolated.

Try and change the way you see it. When those feelings come about it also means there is no chaos in your life and that you are simply at a point on your path of quiet calm and peace. Which is one of the things we strive for… so push those feelings of lonliness to the
side and enjoy the peace and quiet. Feel the blessing of not having the chaos to deal with. Enjoy this break.

Many Blessings,

To Believe

To Believe

 To believe is to know that every day is a new beginning.

It is to trust that miracles happen, and dreams really do come true.

To believe is to see angels dancing among the clouds,

To know the wonder of a stardust sky, and the wisdom of the man in the moon.

To believe is to know the value of a nurturing heart,

The innocence of a child’s eyes and the beauty of an aging hand,
for it is through their teachings we learn to love.

To believe is to find the strength and courage that lies within us,
when it is time to pick up the pieces and begin again.

To believe is to know we are not alone,
that life is a gift and this is our time to cherish it.

To believe is to know that wonderful surprises are just waiting to happen,
And all our hopes and dreams are within reach.

Many Blessings,

After A While…

This poem is not one of my own but one I found years ago… stumbled across it again this morning and thought I would share. ENJOY!

After a while you learn the subtle difference between holding a hand and chaining a soul.

And you learn that love doesn’t mean leaning and company doesn’t mean security. And you begin to learn that kisses aren’t contracts and presents aren’t promises.

And you begin to accept your defeats with your head up and your eyes ahead, with the grace of an adult, not the grief of a child.

And you learn to build all your roads on today because tomorrow’s ground is too uncertain for plans, and futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight. .

After a while you learn that even sunshine burns if you get too much.

So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to leave you flowers.

And you learn that you really can endure; You really are strong, you really do have worth.  And you learn, and you learn With every goodbye you learn.

Standing Still

Today I want to speak about standing still within so that we can learn more about ourselves. Stepping back to clearly see yourself and how you behave and how you react to life’s many situations.

How many times do we speak when we should have stayed quiet ?
How many times have we taken a leap when we should have stood still?
How many times did we think we saw something that just wasn’t there?
There are so many ways that we learn about self… these are just a few.

The key is learning how to find that place in yourself where you can stop, stand still for a moment and really see clearly .. so that we may not make that leap if it is not needed.. so that we may be able to keep our words quiet until they need to be heard .. and so that we may see things as they are and not how we think they are or how fear would like us to see them or how we wish they were.

It takes time and practice and lots of self discipline to learn about standing still within yourself. Maybe take a few minutes a day to try it at different times throughout your day. Take that time and learn about that place within you. .. get to know it… feel it… love it and you may find that often you will go back to it withmore ease each time you visit.

So lets all take a moment now to sit in the stillness within to have a more clarity of our lives and of ourselves.

Many Blessings,

Message from Spirit 9-23-2011

The following message may or may not make sense to those who are reading the words to follow.. but know that you are reading this post for a reason.

Message from Spirit:

Words that have been spoken/written fell upon unready ears/eyes …..

Those who speak/write will speak/write again…
Those seeking will listen/review/read with ready ears/eyes.


It is time…

How do you know which you are? YOU KNOW.
It is within you and you are already what you have always felt you would be.

Allow life to flow through you .. both the speaker/writer and the listener/reader. Allow it.

You are ready. Don’t doubt yourself or question it. TRUST and DO.


Many Blessings,


If I could share…

waya777777If I could share with you a bit of me I would ask you to take hold my hand and let go

Let go, not of my hand .. but of all else .. so that you can experience what’s inside me

Holding my hand you would know my pain and that I hurt just as you when things go wrong

You would know my love and how its always growing

You would know my tears an what gets them flowing

You would know my passion and the roar of its fire

You would know my song without hearing it sung out-loud

You would know my heart and what makes it melt

You would know my touch.. both gentle and strong

You would know my faith and the strength of my will

You would know me just by holding my hand and standing still

You would know my faults, my failures and my sad regrets

You would know me and all my secrets

You would know not just what you see but those things that don’t always show

You would know me … just by holding my hand and letting go.

Many Blessings,

Remember Who You Are

IMG_8974Remember who you wanted to be when you were young?

Remember the dreams of growing up?

Remember ………

It is time to find yourself again …. through the chore of growing up and living you have forgotten or lost who you are …

It is time to remember ….

It is never too late to be who you are.. Walk with love in the direction of your dreams and keep with you always that inner child who wishes on stars, pinky swears and who believes in fairytales and wishes coming true.

Many Blessings,

My Magical Life

I love, love, love my magical life.. I really do.. it brightens my days and brightens the light inside me as well.  That being said.. I have to tell you about my commute home from work this afternoon. Here we go:

Well, earlier today I was blogging about work ethics and about doing the best you can do and then taking it a step further … all the while that I was writing about this I was thinking about my husband because he is that way as well. He just cannot make himself do something half way. He always has to go a step beyond what one might think you should do so that he does it better than what was done before.

Well.. the thoughts of my darling husband lingered through my mind all the way home. Every time I think of him, I can’t help but smile. It’s one of those smiles that starts right in the center of your being and just jumps right out onto your face as though it cannot be contained! So, I’m driving home and thinking about him and smiling all the while and I thought to myself, “thoughts of my hubby are just fluttering through my mind like a butterfly upon a breeze” I know,  I know.. I’m sappy that way.

Just a few minutes into my drive and “Our Song” comes on the radio… ok so you know I had to chuckle a bit to myself as a grin covered my entire face. I reach over and turn up the radio and at that moment I am in a que to merge onto another section of the interstate and as I sat there singing along to “our song” I look over at the traffic and in the median bounces a butterfly right past my car.. LOL! Finally I make it up to the merge and as traffic from the other lanes are mingling a truck moves over in front of me with the license plate of 777LVV. I think to myself…. “OMG, can this get much better!” You see we were married on 7/7/07 :-). I continue singing and making my way home.

The song is over and I can’t get much happier. I’m on my way home, I have a wonderful husband and life is pretty good today. As these thoughts fill my mind, it’s time to merge again and you won’t believe this but now I am behind another car with one of those angelic numbered license plates. This time it’s 444, which means the angels are surrounding you and  with you. You can imagine, I am all grins!

My commute is about an hours drive and now I am getting really close to home. Again, I am qed up to merge onto the last bit of highway just before hitting the back streets to home. I’m sitting there at a mere crawl inching my way forward, the windows are down, the radio is on and a cool breeze comes into my window. I breathe a heavy sigh and think to myself,” What a beautiful day” just then a car slowly passes by and yep you guessed it another plate with angelic numbers. This time it’s 111, which means opportunity and new doorways opening up.

Just seconds after seeing the 111, this thought rolled into my head,  “I just need to let go of thinking about the things I don’t have and concentrate on what I do have in my life”. Just as that thought finished, I look over and there is yet another car with 444 on the license plate! I’m thinking.. no one will ever believe this! This was the universe confirming my path or at least that’s how I like to believe.

Just amazing! Funny how life works. Those things that can’t be explained. Some call them coincidences … I call it magic!

Love life and watch it love you back!

Many Blessings,

Getting the Job Done

Today as I made my way into work, the thoughts rolling through my head were about work ethics and being replaceable in the workplace.

I thought I might blog about those thoughts and then decided not to because I didn’t want to come across as being full of myself or anything like that. Later in the day, I was having a conversation with a co-worker and funny enough that the conversation should suddenly turn into the same topic that I was pondering earlier. We talked about our own work ethics and those of others along with the pros and cons of both.

My personal style of work is a competition with myself. Yeah I know it sounds funny but that’s just me. Every day …. ok maybe not EVERY day but most days I strive to out-do what I’ve already done. Always looking forward and working at making what I do the best. No matter the job… no matter the task.. I am out to “WOW” as many people as I can. If I can “WOW” someone then I feel good about my job, myself and whatever task it was that I had completed.

I’ve always been a people pleaser, so it makes sense that I work in this way. It’s really pretty selfish really … making others smile, making others feel good, and “Wowing” them .. makes ME feel good. It’s a high like no other and besides that the days are so much easier to get through. Liking what you do sure does make life easier to handle.

There are parts of my job I can’t stand, just like everyone else…. it’s not always roses and smiling faces. Sometimes the tasks seem impossible or just a big ol’ headache… but… being the positive outlooker that I am, I take on each task hoping for the best and striving to be better each and every day.

Let’s face it .. everyone is replaceable when it comes to the work force. At the end of the day, there will always be someone out there to replace you as soon as the opportunity arises. My goal is to be that person that does such a great job.. going above and beyond the duty at hand to shine .. that when I am gone.. it will be a noticeable difference.  Sure, I can be replaced. Just about anyone could do what I do.. but … can or will they do it as good as I have???

I received a great compliment today. An agent said to me that the real benefit to being with our company was having access to me. 😀 Whew.. that means I’m doing my job! And that’s just it … I have set my goal to not only doing my job but also doing it well.. as well as I possibly can. No matter what anyone else thinks or feels, at the end of the day I feel good about the work that I have done. I am able to rest easy knowing I stepped outside the easy way out by just doing what was needed to get the job done, but also by going that extra mile and putting in extra effort just because that’s who I am.

I’ll leave you with a great quote: “Hold yourself responsible for a higher standard than anybody expects of you. Never excuse yourself.” Henry Ward Beecher

Many Blessings,

The Coming Season

WP_20141008_048Autumn is here… can you feel it?

The air becoming crisp and cool, the leaves gently drifting toward the ground and all things in nature preparing for the winter that is to come.

You may feel torn at this time with so many things to be done and the feeling of so little time to complete your tasks… calm down and relax.. know that it is simply nature taking its course. Just as the squirrels are busily running around gathering nuts and preparing their winter nests … we as humans do the same but most don’t even recognize this as a seasonal feeling.

In the days of old, this is exactly what we would do .. prepare for the coming winter. Harvests would be stored and our homes would be readied for the cold. Today we have central heat and air and grocery stores to take care of all that.. but for centuries those things didn’t exist and we had to physically do these things ourselves at this time of year. So you see, that feeling still stirs within us when the air begins to cool… we have simply forgotten why.

Understanding nature and your own bond with it … consciously or not … will help you during these times. You feel this stirring within you and yet have a hard time understanding why.. this frantic need to hurry and get things done … but once you understand why this feeling stirs within … then you can relax and let go … you can see more clearly and are more able to manage life’s tasks.

Many Blessings for a beautiful autumn season,

Change, Trust and Fear

Change, Trust & Fear

Change is something that must happen all the time. Change doesn’t have to be scary and it doesn’t have to be drastic. Small changes are occuring within and around us every day.

Changing your surroundings for instance, doesn’t always mean a change in location. There are many things in your life you could change if you think about it. Maybe it’s the way you interact with people or a certain person. Maybe it’s routine things you do that can or need to be changed. It really could be anything in your life, it doesn’t mean you have to physically move or change locations.

Maybe there are things you would like to do or say but those things are outside your
comfort zone. Keep in mind the golden rule “harm none” including yourself and then give some of these things outside your comfort zone a try. By doing that,  you will definately shake things up a bit … even if it is just within yourself.

Another rule to keep in mind “Don’t bite off more than you can chew”.

Trust is a hard one. I for one, know how hard it is to trust not only others but most importantly… yourself. The question comes to mind of how do you know the difference between instinct/gut feelings and fear? For instance.. say a choice in your life appears… how does one know if you are leaning toward or away from that choice because of instinct or because of your own fears?

From my own experiences, I have found that my true gut feelings/inner knowing doesn’t cause fear. They don’t make me nervous or hesitate. Instead I am filled more with a knowing, a confidence and a positive outlook. Only when my fears come into play do I begin to second guess myself and question my true inner guidance.

Examine how you feel about all the many things in your life as you plan ahead.  When that little voice whispers in your ear… “Oh no you can’t do that” but everything inside you feels so right and it feels as though you were going against your inner knowing  by not doing it ….. then I’d say that “Oh you can’t do that” voice came from your fears.

If the voice says “Don’t do that” and with that voice you feel a sense of knowing it was indeed the wrong thing to do… then thats the voice you should be listening to.

See the difference?

Many Blessings,

Art is knowing which ones to keep.” – Scott Adams

The Hamster Wheel of Life

We’ve all heard it before.. it a phrase that is said all the time.. life is a circle.. everything comes in cycles.. everything is connected .. we are all apart of the same circle.

We all know this and we understand what it means… but do you truly see?

We must do far more than understand the meaning .. we must live our lives with that same understanding.

Imagine if you will your life as a hamster wheel … you are on that wheel sometimes walking at a comfortable pace… sometimes running like hell… sometimes we even stop for a bit of a rest but when we get going again we are still traveling on that same wheel (our life).

So it should be easy to see that what ever you leave on that wheel will come back around to you at some point.

The question of the day is: What have you left on your wheel of life?

Reaching Out to Others

Reaching Beyond Yourself

Reach out beyond yourself.. beyond you own circle.. reach out to friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, people in your community, etc.

It is a great feeling to touch the lives of others in a positive way ..  Don’t let the holidays or special events be the only time of the year you reach out to help another.

The greatest gift is a gift given from the heart…  gifts come in many sizes and in many ways.. sometimes it is a gift to just listen. Gifts don’t always need to cost money. Give a gift of your time. Whatever you have, reach beyond yourself and give it with your heart… act with love and watch and feel how that love is returned.

Sometimes others just need an ear to listen.. a shoulder to cry on or a friend to lean on… be there for others.. and not just when it’s convienent.

It’s not always easy to be so available… and it’s not that you should ALWAYS be .. you do need time for yourself as well. But try and make yourself more available to help… that’s all I ask today.

You just never know what storm is going on inside someones life and you just may be that smile that helped them make it through.

Most don’t ask for help.. but if you are aware of others and you have opened up your perception of the world around you …  then you will know when someone needs that help.

Many Blessings,

Wind Dancer – Stained Glass Panel

Wind Dancer

Last weekend I started a new stained glass piece titled : Wind Dancer

She is so near being finished now.. This weekend I was able to get her all pieced togather … now all she needs is some putty.. some patina, polish and framing.

Here’s a short video of my progress 🙂 ENJOY!

Time for Appreciation

Today being 9-11, I thought this would be fitting.

Take some time today to think about all the things that made you laugh or smile. I bet most of those things had nothing at all to do with material possesions… but more likely they were acts of kindness, friendship, family bonding, and basic human interaction. Maybe it was finding your very first 4 leaf clover, or watching the sunset or rise.  Maybe it was the look on someone face when they had lost the plot and became confused… maybe it was your child’s first steps… whatever it was … I can almost guarantee it had nothing at all to do with something you “thought” you wanted or needed.. instead it was something that just came to you freely and without some supermarket price tag.

I’m not saying that life isn’t hard and that there are no tragedies.. today is a reminder that tragedy happens …. I’m simply saying to take a moment and appreciate all the little things in life that bring you unexpected joy.. take a moment to appreciate those around you … tell those close to you that you love them and appreciate them. Hug a whole lot more and complain a whole lot less.

Take time today to appeciate the fact that if nothing else in this world you still have life to live … and if you still have life you have dreams, hopes and possibilities.

Remember to take time daily for appreciating all the great gifts that have come your way. You just never know when one of those gifts will be gone.

Many Blessings,

Stained Glass Kaleidoscope

Recently bought a kaleidoscope kit to learn how to make them. I think they are both fun and beautiful!

So Labor Day weekend I set off to create my very first kaleidoscope… it could do with some improvements.  Through the week I searched for the parts to make another to see if I could make it a bit better than my first … whew.. I think I have this down now!

Here’s my first kaleidoscope…. it looks solid and for the most part it is.. my color wheel on the front is just a bit wobbly .. which I can fix… just haven’t yet 🙂

The color wheels on this first one are the  simpler 6 piece wheels…

Here is my second one … I doesn’t have any feet on it yet .. I may end up making a wood stand for it instead. The color wheels on this one are 12 piece wheels… so that’s 24 tiny little pieces of glass! Nothing wobbles on this one! Plus I added a bit of extra detail on the top of this one!

Here are some pics of what they look like on the inside 🙂

The first 3 photos are the effects using the 6 piece color wheels:

Awakening To Your True Self

Lets talk today about Awakening to your true self..

These are my thoughts alone so please don’t think I am saying that any of this
is ultimate truth for all.. because we all need to find our own truths .. and
that indeed is a part of awakening to the true self.

I feel as though we are born to be a certain person … or at least a
particular type person .. we are all born with particular gifts and it is for
us to find those gifts and develop them .. and then take them out into the
world and share them.

As we develop and grow we try on many faces. Hoping to find one that really
fits and feels right.

Awakening to our true self is identifying the face that needs no mask.
Identifying with your own soul .. finding the true you .. and then allowing
that person to be free.

Awakening causes us to put down our masks and be true to not just all that come
in contact with us but also true to ourselves.

We must awaken to the gifts we have been given and we must put them to use.

We must stop finding faults within and stop holding ourselves back with self
created fears and doubts.

We must find love for ourselves and then that love is free to pour out into the

Be proud and not ashamed of who you are.

Be strong and hold your head high. Do not allow the ideas and thoughts of
others make you hide your gifts or any other part of who you truly are.

Awakening to true self gives you freedom from such negative thoughts others may
project onto you.

Awakening to true self  … makes you aware of not only your surroundings in
the world.. but also to your own thoughts, actions and gifts.

When you are truly awake .. you see the world with new eyes … like the fog
has been lifted and suddenly things start becoming clear.

It’s not something that happens overnight, so don’t sit there expecting that to

I’m sorry to say that there is not set ritual.. ceremony .. life experience ..
or certain age that the awakening will happen. The awakening will happen
when the time is right and when you are ready.

You might say, “Oh I am ready now”, so I will do ceremony on next full moon
and from that point on I will be awake.. quiet giggle… I won’t say that it
won’t work. What I am saying is that it will work only if it is time and you
are TRULY ready .. so don’t give up ..  just continue the journey as you are
guided and learn to trust your inner senses.

The awakening process is a long and often painful one.. again, I will say …
well worth the effort.. 🙂

Many blessings to all



Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.. quiet yourself.. quiet the world around you and listen ..

The trees are whispering among themselves… it’s nearly that time again for them to take their rest. It’s been a long hot summer and they have survived once again… so now they find some time to relax and let down their hair as leaves gently fall toward the ground. A heavy sigh and it’s nap time once again for the trees, the flowers and even some of our four legged friends.

This weekend while I was taking breaks from working on my newest stained glass projects… I would quite easily lose track of time starring outside my window .. watching the birds and the squirrels prepare for the cooler weather on its way.. leaves fell from the trees like a gentle rain and my back yard now looks a lot like a patchwork quilt with colorful patches of leaves blanketing the ground.

What a beautiful sight! Many may have looked out that window and said.. oh great now I have to rake.. but not me.. I just thought .. How Beautiful! Thank you Creator for the gift!

Make sure you take some time from your days to enjoy nature. Enjoy life. Enjoy just being.

It does the mind and  body good to rest. We need that down time to recharge and refuel.

What is life without the time to enjoy it?

Many Blessings,

It’s all about who you know….

“It’s all about who you know….” How many times have you heard that phrase?

Well, it’s true!

In so many instances it really is about who you know…. some of the best breaks, opportunities, deals.. etc.. come from people you know or are connected to in some way.

This year I won 1st place for Best Visual Artist and Best Blog because of who I know… yep .. that’s right .. because of who I know!

But, it’s not exactly what you think…. Let me explain.

The people I know come from all walks of life.. most everyday folks just like me. All of us doing our best to make our way in this world.

They may or may not be the most politically influential, they may or may not be the highest in command at what they do, they may or may not be the wealthiest  (as far as monetary value goes), they may or may not have much power in this world … but they are by far the most caring, dedicated, hard working, dependable, friendliest and kind hearted people that I know!

It is because of these people, standing by me throughout the voting process that I was able to win 1st place.

The thing is …. the award and acknowledgement is great .. but what’s even greater is that I have enough of these people on my side… who cared enough about me to cast their votes daily for an entire month..  who despite my constant and annoying voting reminders .. still stood by me and together we ruled the Toast of Music City 2011!!

It is indeed  “who you know”  and in this case I am proud and honored to know so many wonderful, caring folks!

Who you know doesn’t always mean you have to know the wealthiest, most powerful people…  you just have to know the ones who truly care about others.

Thank you to everyone who voted for me this year… and most of all thank you all for your friendship, support and for being who you are!

I’m so glad I know the best of the best! The Cream of the Crop! Love You All!

Many Blessings,

Magical Living

Normally I don’t post much from other sources… but this guys view of the world we live in is great.. he’s definately got the talent for creating a magical world… Check out his video… watch it all the way through .. he takes us on a tour of how he has built his very own magical world.. working with the Earth and the magic that already exists. I wish everyone could see and feel the magic around us everyday…. It’s sad to know that most never truly see or experience it.

Many Blessings, Raventalker
