Message to Me

As per my objectives, this week’s message and reflections come from a note I wrote titled ‘Message to me’ and dated 6/5/2021. So here goes:

“Remember to look for the doors. Remember to look for the portals, the ways into the magical places I belong. Remember to stay focused and pay attention. Trust yourself to make sure you are okay. Not others. Remember, the way has been made for me to survive and thrive. Remember to look for the doors.”

When my son took the picture above I was fascinated with the snake. Big ass Garter snake; garden snake. Hidden in the overgrown bush/tree that had to be removed. Beautiful and creepy at the same time.

When I found this note, I was cleaning and sorting through a bunch of memo notes and envelopes that I had written passwords and websites and topics for research on. This sorting is tedious and wealth producing. I have a wealth of ideas and information waiting for me to recover it and give it time and attention. In the business/busyness of daily living the message returned quietly and clearly; remember to look for the openings that are still waiting for you and I. Remember to believe in the magical places awaiting you. Remember, you created them when you were dreaming and drawing and talking to your ‘imaginary’ playmates. We have been creating and responding to our magical places since birth. Much like watching a baby coo and smile and talk to the light of the lamp while you are feeding them, the magical realms, the frequencies and angelic choruses have been calling us, speaking with us, feeding our souls from before birth. As master creators in training, we have visions and palaces and adventures we imagined and prepared for ourselves in the many dimensions, many mansions of the multi-verse and they await our attentions and energy to bring them as we brought ourselves into this 3-D place. We gave ourselves this mission and we alone test ourselves along the way. It’s ours to complete and enjoy and our success is assured.

Now there are many shadows and potholes and disagreeable people and circumstances also appearing. I have, maybe you have to, been struggling a bit lately feeling like there is no real good way through. Then I find a message from the natural world, this week it was the buzzard, the vulture. She, (it felt like a she) circled over my head as I stood in the driveway. Never flapping her wings, in perfect concentric circles. And then, she reversed herself. Clockwise became counter-clockwise. I felt great joy watching her watch me and whatever else was on her mind. I thanked her and later looked up some metaphysical meanings for vulture. Animal Speak by Ted Andrews is an amazing reference and resource book. Such a mystical bird. It’s so easy to love butterflies and rainbows but we miss the deeper messages possible from the caterpillar, hurricane or vulture. Paraphrasing Ted Andrews about the vulture, he said :”In alchemy, the vulture was a symbol of sublimation…a promise that the suffering of the immediate was temporary and necessary for a higher purpose was at work…”

So as this week comes to a close, it is appropriate I find this message to myself and I share it with you…Remember to look for the doors…the portals…into the magical places you and I belong.

Peace & Blessings,



Greetings all!

I have a passion for taking pictures of certain things or from certain perspectives. Shadows are one. I often take my shadow picture. It feels like that’s how I know I’m in 3D, how I have a physical presence. Another one is trees. I look for the faces in the trees. I look for the roots. I look for the hollow places which are entrances for the inner or other worlds. This is one of my tree pictures that the face or at least one of them is pretty obvious to me. What was surprising is that the homeowner had never really looked at or seen the faces. It reminds me how easily we are unconscious or unaware of all the expressions of creation.

Today’s reflection comes from a note I wrote November 22, 2021. There I go with these dusty notes on my work table. And now they are being seen, reviewed and released. This sounds and feels so much like what is happening across the Earth and humanity currently. So here goes:

“Cruelty is weakness. Self-cruelty, animal cruelty, torture. All of this and more. This is blasphemy. This is sin. This is profane. This is taking the name or nature of God, The Lord, the Law, in vain. This is placing Gods before the the Source, God. Idol Worship.”

Wow… That’s how I felt when I found this and read it. Wow. What was on my mind at that time I wonder? What happened almost two years ago that had me responding and reacting this way. As always these notes I made intrigue me. When I assess my state of mind now I am intrigued on my use of certain terms. God…Gods… I know that how I was feeling and defining this term alone has shifted dramatically in just the past few months let alone how I meant it back then… Back then, like that was so terribly long ago. I’m writing this in a daze of wonder on how much each of us can and has shifted in these past few years. If you have resisted the changes, I imagine you are enduring anxiety and depression that’s leaving you exhausted and fearful. If you have embraced, even a little, the changes and shifts, I imagine you are experiencing some anxiety and depression, however, it fades away as you remember to enjoy life and living. I do a little of both.

What I ask you to focus on this time is how do some of these words leave you feeling? God? Gods? Idol Worship? and the big one, Blasphemy?

If you were like so many of us, the prevailing religious training of the day gives you one paradigm within which you define and understand these terms. What if you could expand that and see these elements, energies, words, as the operate in your daily living. What is your nature? This is always in development, in cycles, like the natural world seasons. And even if you know this is Spring, Summer is next, followed by Autumn and Winter, none of these seasons will be this year like they were last year or as they will be in the coming years. Yet we expect them to fit within our learned paradigms so we can continue to live unconcsciously or semi-conscious at best. When something or someone is not fitting into your paradigms our learned response is often fear-based, which means we have a greater chance of being or becoming cruel. Cruelty is often learned as well. It’s so easy to say children are cruel but i venture to say children, like adults, give what they got. Children are cruel because the adults in their lives are cruel and we know they these adults are often just reproducing the patterns they caught, were taught. So, I can take some more time to look at this behavior, cruel. Many times as children or even as adults we define discipline as being cruel. Yet discipline is what occurs at every level of the physical world. Gravity, disciplines us. Inertia disciplines us. Chemistry disciplines us. Each of these sciences reminds us of what we can and cannot do as well as what the results will be of our actions. So learning and being disciplined allows for greater positive outcomes. It seems generally.

Well, I feel another rabbit hole opening so I’m going to stop now. My thoughts remain that when we are cruel with ourselves, or any other living organism, there is fear at the base of it. Fear; False Evidence Appearing Real. The presence of fear indicates the absence of love; the absence of faith. When you find yourself feeling cruel or being cruel and unnecessarily harsh to yourself or others, look for what is causing you to be afraid and bring it to your inner faith and love space. It’s there. You still have it. Just sit for a bit and let it show itself again.

Peace & Blessings,
