The life you have and the life you wish for are coming together. They aren’t as far apart as you might believe… they are merging and becoming the life you’ve been working toward.
Starting the week with energy from the weekend NEW MOON!!This week is about finding your balance and learning how to navigate this NEW YOU and YOUR NEW LIFE! Transformation continues… remember to get out of your own way and allow change, don’t fear these changes. The changes coming now are to help us reach our soul purpose.
Today, spend some time acknowledging the changes that have come to be in your life. Look at how far you have come and know that you are on your way to where you want to be. Your vision is more clear than ever. We are becoming the butterfly and taking on new experiences with a fresh new perspective.
This week ahead is going to be all about TRANSFORMATION. The caterpillar turns into the butterfly but on so many more levels. You are working on being reborn. Suddenly you will see the world with new eyes, hear with new ears, your sense of self will be different. The truth is heard now.. no more mask or tricks.. the truth is revealed in such a way that it makes walking away from those things that insult your spirit…. sooooooooo much easier. You are awake! Welcome to this new life!
Spirit has us do a bit of reflecting this morning. Take a look at how much you have grown, how much you and your world has transformed and where you have come from. Look at all the things you have already survived and endured. The power to transform your world is within you. It has already changed so many times… it continues to change. You are the master of your own life, it is up to you to guide into the right direction.
Dragonfly is connected to the symbolism of change and light. When the dragonfly shows up in your life, it may remind you to bring a bit more lightness and joy into your life. The dragonfly changes color as it matures and is a reminder that we should embrace our own transformation as we grow.
Swiftly buzzing through the air
Dancing on the breeze without a care.
Wings shimmering in the sunlight
Colors of change, taking flight.
From the water to the sky
Listen closely to the wisdom of the dragonfly
Don’t fear the changes in your life
For it doesn’t always bring one, strife
To transform is to grow
Bringing with it, wisdom in tow
Allow the light within, to shine bright
Unfold those wings and allow yourself to take flight
From these wings of mine
Let me be your reminder, your sign
Life is filled with joy and light
When change comes, don’t make it a fight.
Today I took a sort walk around the lake on my lunch hour and danced with a few of my winged friends. Here are the photos.

I paused for some time this morning and ask Spirit to guide me into the right direction for today’s blog topic. I gathered my Vision Quest cards, put on some soothing music and allowed myself to be in the moment. As I sat there shuffling the cards, Spirit showed me a small herd of deer just over the hill across the way. They peered over the hillside, looking right over in my direction and I smiled inside. I sat there shuffling my cards and taking in the moment. As I watched outside my window, the wind was blowing and leaves would rush past, some of them resembling other things. I thought one was a small bird and another I thought an animal rushing behind a shrub for cover from the freezing wind. I shuffled my cards a little longer and when I stopped this was the card that layed on my desk. TRANSFORMATION.
My first thought as I looked down upon this card before me wasn’t of a physical transformation but a transformation of thought.
We have the power within us to transform. Transform our mind, body and spirit. I am my own example this morning as I am not feeling very good today, a bit moody for reasons I don’t even know… I just am. Every time I begin to think negative thoughts I found myself whispering.. stay positive… stay positive. So I would focus on positive thoughts until another negative one tried to creep in … and there I would go again, whispering to myself “stay positive, think positive thoughts”. It may not be easy, it may not be simple but if you wish to transform whether it be your body, your life, your thoughts or something else in your life…. you can do this. Persistence and a will to change is all that is needed to set the wheels in motion for whichever transformation you wish to create.
You Are PREGNANT!!! YES.. I said PREGNANT! Nope … it’s not a mistake.. let me explain:
Just as a baby incubates inside us women for 9 months, growing and developing… so are many other things growing and developing inside us: talents, skills, powers, etc.
It is time now to give birth to a new you and a new phase in your life. This new phase may be spiritual, physical or emotional. Whichever it may be.. give your self time and try your best to maintain patience with yourself and the process. Just as babies come on their own time… so will this new phase. Don’t rush it into being. Allow the natural flow of life to guide you and this new phase will develop beautifully and with great ease.
Don’t be afraid of the changes within you. The transformation that is already happening will be beautiful and fulfilling. Embrace the changes and absorb the magic.
Oh and ENJOY this new way of being!
Ace of Air – Inspiration – Insight – Mental Clarity
The answers are clear….. follow that hunch – that inner knowing. You know what to do so why question what you already know and feel? An inner balance will help you find the trust that is needed. Practice meditations and begin following your hunches… the more you follow the more you will begin trusting yourself fully.
Nine of Fire – Inner Strength – Break Through – Growth – Courage – Resolve
You know the gifts and the strengths that exist inside you… and you must begin now to trust that they will sprout fourth when the time is right. This does not mean that your actions stop.. it means you continue your work to progress but have patience in yourself and allow the gifts to fully develop in their own time. It is hard to see our own growth.. but take a journey back and look at where you were 10 years ago, 5 years ago, 3 years ago and even just 1 year ago.. you are growing .. and you must truth that you will continue this path of growth.
Balance – Looking Within – Change – Transformation
It is easy to become overwhelmed in today’s life .. take some time to step back and reflect within. Sometimes we must withdraw to regroup and gain our balance. Let go of “doing” and just let go for a while. Listen to your inner knowing and when the time is right to begin “doing” again.. you’ll know.
Letting go is the key to wisdom… clarity is revealed when one lets go. Easier said then done… I know.. but practice makes perfect .. so pend some time teaching yourself the act of letting go.. even if for small moments at a time. You will benefit greatly from this practice, and the more you do it the more you benefit.
Just because everyone around you isn’t changing, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t.
Change is a natural occurrence that happens in all things. For us to grow, we must change in one way or another. Maybe it is our thoughts, our way of living, the way we do particular things, the way we process information, the way we handle life or any number of possibilities one might change. Don’t worry about fitting in with everyone else. Be YOU! Enjoy the changes that naturally occur within you and allow them sculpt you into the person you were born to be.
Let your own unique beauty shine!
As life comes at us, bringing everything it has…. the good and the bad, we grow, we learn and we transform.
The key here is to transform with life as it comes… don’t fight it. It’s going to happen no matter what we do so fighting it only causes us that much more heartache and sometimes even trauma. Find that place in yourself where you can find comfort in your own growth and transformation. Fighting with ourselves when we are trying to evolve only causes us more harm and sets us back when we should be continually moving forward.
I know that some changes are hard to take but by fighting this change we only make it that much harder. Don’t think of it as giving in.. think of it as moving forward. Allow nature to take its course and allow yourself that room to grow.
Again, I know this can at times be very hard… but becoming stagnant can be even harder on the soul than one could imagine.
Those more severe moments of our transformation tend to throw us for a loop and can send us off balance … there is reason for this. Once we lose our balance we must work to regain that balance. We change our position, our footing… and we readjust ourselves where we stand. Once we have regained our balance, the world around us has a different look, well it doesn’t look any different really, but we see it differently. Our vision comes then from a new perspective.
Remind yourself, when going through a seemingly chaotic situation that transformation is taking place and that soon you will have a new outlook on life. It doesn’t always change drastically.. but it does change.
With great intent we enter into a realm of light
Dancing until the day becomes night
From what we once were to what we shall become
The ancient voices begin to hum
Our ancestors gather from far and near
Whispering change upon our ear
Nudging us forward in a positive light
Dancing to and fro with all our might
Our souls begin to sing a new song
Placing us upon our path, right where we belong
Echos of what we once were released into the fire
Spirit lifts us higher and higher
Letting go and allowing something new
Over this circle the winged ones flew.
The four legged gathered all around
Keeping the circle safe and sound.
And with the final dance and a chant or two
The transformation has granted us a brand new view.
