2Cellos ~ Benedictus

My mood yesterday and this morning:

Thanks to David and “My Dream Guys” for always knowing and providing the soundtrack of my life. 🙂 This one’s too beautiful not to share.

Foundational Shifts and Incremental Upgrades

Have you noticed? So many times when we set forth a big goal or intention, we have a vague idea of what we’d like, but no nuts and bolts understanding of how to do it. How would it feel? How did our future self “get there”?

Many times, a really big upgrade requires a foundational shift. Minor issues at the current level would become major with more energy, more visibility, more wealth, more, more, more anything. We might not realize it now, but the bigger part of us connected to All That Is knows and course corrects.

Building a castle on a cracked foundation risks disaster. Flying higher with faulty wings isn’t wise. Real, lasting achievement of this magnitude requires repair first, in order to build or soar later — with confidence, grace and joy.

If you’ve set a big goal or intended something far beyond your current reach, take a moment to appreciate any foundational shifts or incremental upgrades:

What fell apart or faded away after you launched your goal?

In what ways might this loss be a good or necessary thing?

What weak areas did it expose?

What old wounds or resentments surprised you by reappearing?

What new opportunities for healing and integration presented themselves?

How have you seized or resisted these opportunities?

In what ways has your life improved during your longer quest?

Which incremental upgrades joined the journey without you noticing?

In a world of “instant manifestation,” “Law of Attraction” and “spontaneous healing,” I hear from so many people who feel discouraged or impatient with their progress. Yes, sometimes we block ourselves from moving forward, but it helps to take stock once in awhile. You might be further along than you imagine.

Healing and abundance often sneak through the back door while we pine away on the front porch. Only when we go back inside do we notice how our living space has changed.

Divine Doorway 19: The Sun

After nearly a month of painting, yesterday, I finished the latest portal “door,” this one on canvas but with a window-like quality.

Divine Doorway Number 19: The Sun, by Laura Bruno

 

I modeled this extremely coded portal after the traditional Sun card in the Tarot, with some important shifts, which I’ll explain below.

Rider-Waite-Smith version of The Sun card

When I just checked the list of Divine Doorways and Porta Portals to see what number I’ve reached, I noticed the synchronicity: the Sun card is number 19 in the Tarot, and this Sun portal is my 19th portal in this series. I didn’t plan that. As so often happens with these portals, it just worked out that way. I had forgotten that I painted a portal based on the Sun before, Divine Doorway Number 10: Hopi/Jewel in the Lotus. This 19th door was more traditional and personal to me, whereas the first Sun was a commissioned piece, designed and coded to manifest that patron’s hopes and dreams. Continue reading

Contrast, Paradox and Non-Linear Time

After a week of temperatures in the 50’s-70’s, on Saturday, it started snowing. Yesterday, we awoke to a winter wonderland that melted again by late afternoon. For a few hours, though, my garden showcased winter, spring, and summer all at once:

Those pots of summer lilies and ranunculus spent all Saturday and Saturday night in our garage because of the forecast snow, but I love seeing them juxtaposed with winter snow and spring hyacinths (near the bench).

This photo captures so much of what I see happening right now, as we live amidst contrast, paradox and non-linear time. That can feel stressful and confusing, but it offers so many options to thrive. Just because it hasn’t happened before doesn’t mean it cannot happen now. So many people I know — myself included — are spontaneously recalling and healing deep past life memories. So many others find life opening doors, even if just a tiny crack. Beware the tendency to dismiss things that you haven’t seen before. Beware the tendency to live from an all or nothing, black or white, rigid space. Tiny steps add up, and sometimes the smallest choice triggers a quantum leap. All time is now, and that brings so much beauty and possibility.

Yesterday, while working on my latest portal painting, I opened the sliding glass door to let in some fresh air. Rapidly melting snow created a babbling brook symphony, as cardinals and robins sang along. I often paint to music, but David taking a nap restricted me blasting Chopin on the stereo. Instead, Nature transported me while the portal birthed itself. Restrictions create opportunities, for those with eyes to see and ears to hear. Beauty enfolds us and pours forth from us. We are beauty. We real-ize this fact when we step out of expectations into the realm of paradox. We live in a both/and Universe.

Timothy Glenn ~ Superconscious Technique

Here’s a different type of post from Timothy Glenn. It can appeal to artists and scientists alike, and it provides effective ways to hack your own inner programming. Tim’s article came through via email just after I posted yesterday’s Dolores Cannon video. As synchronicity would have it, they go well together like theory and technique.

Superconscious Technique

by Timothy Glenn

Sometimes we dust off an old book and reread it, discovering that it now offers a whole new experience. Sometimes we pull an old technique out of our memory banks, and find it works more effectively than ever. Such has been the case with the Superconscious Technique.

I initially encountered the Superconscious Technique back in the early 90’s through a group called Extraterrestrial Earth Mission. A lot of us adopted it, and then adapted it to suit ourselves. After retrieving it from the halls of memory a few months ago, I reworked it yet again to fit the current reality.

This is not presented here as though it were carved in stone, as if reality were a “one size fits all” proposition. Since we are an evolving species, it helps if our modalities evolve with us. You may find that some of the wording doesn’t quite work for you, but can be edited as you see fit.

Dolores Cannon ~ Follow Your Bliss

For some reason, I felt led to find and then post this Dolores Cannon video. I’m sure it will speak to some of you, reaffirming little whispers and longings of the soul. This is not a new or unique message, but it remains an important one!

A Taste of Spring: San Antonio and Perfect Timing

Happy Spring Equinox to those in the Northern Hemisphere! (And Happy Fall Equinox to my Southern readers.)

I’ve been meaning to post a recap of our March 7-11, 2019 trip to San Antonio, but between Mercury Retrograde and Uranus moving into Taurus, life keeps redirecting me. Despite “delays,” large and little sync winks confirm the perfect timing of everything. As giant snowflakes fall outside my windows right now, my San Antonio photos will give a much better taste of Spring.

Another sync wink occurred on March 5, just as I finished selecting clothes to pack. For context, on Valentine’s Day, I decided to read The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings —back to back– with no other books or coursework in between. I finished The Hobbit in about a week, but I am still reading LOTR! Depending on the edition, that’s around a 1,200 page book, so this next part seemed significant. Just before David pulled into our driveway on March 5, I reached this part of LOTR on my Kindle:

I read this on the fifth of March, right before a seeming mishap occurred. The astounding sync wink in a 1,200 page book made me laugh and provided immediate perspective that all was in Divine and perfect order. As predicted, the mishap turned out be no big deal, especially for the chaotic energies of that day. This synchronicity set the tone for our entire trip to San Antonio, which went smoothly, despite Mercury Rx, Uranus zippy zaps, and perfect timing “delays.” Continue reading
