A place to share my morning insights and musings
Good Morning! I asked for some guidance for today and thought I’d share what came through. I hope you find it helpful.
I see myself sitting by a tree near a river. As I watch, I can feel myself trying to push back into the tree. I push and push and suddenly I am inside! I find myself looking out at the river and the woods as easily as I did outside of the tree. The difference is I feel very relaxed and safe.
This morning in my meditation I had an idea. What would it be like to be worry-free? I have always been someone who worries. There are times when I worry less than others, but there has always been some worry lurking in me somewhere. When I asked about if this was possible, I heard to smile more, drink more water, and turn all my worries over to the Divine as soon as they come up. If there is some action I need to take, my Spiritual Support Team (Angels, Spirit Guides) will motivate me to do it! This image makes me think of that. For me, trees are perfect sanctuaries and that is what the Divine is for us too. We can smile, relax, and be in the moment we are in and when worries come up, remember to ask our Angels and the Divine to take it off our hands.
Today, I choose to be worry-free! I am relaxed, peaceful, and grateful for the Divine love and support that surrounds me in every moment. I pray it is so, and so it is!
Wishing you a peaceful, worry-free day!
I am sitting on the bank of a river. I watch at my feet as a snake slides through the sun-kissed water. My eyes are drawn to the sky where I see a hawk flying overhead. I become the hawk and see the river far below. Its shape is like the snake, curving gently as it winds through the valley below. At its mouth, the snake’s jaw seems to open wide, pouring the water into the vastness of the ocean beyond.
Snakes have been a long time phobia for me and I’ve spent the last fourteen years letting go of this fear. They have come forward in my life every time there is a need for rebirth and often drastic change. Though the change it brings is often challenging, ultimately, it has been a change for the better. As I feel this image, I feel the need to be like the hawk and to see from a vaster viewpoint. The symbol of ocean for me is connected with God-consciousness – the Divine collection of all the drops of water or souls who come together in this infinite space. The snake is pouring out all of those journeying into the vastness of the great “I AM.” We are moving out of our limited consciousness and into a more expanded way of being.
When I see the snake swimming by my foot, I feel a wave of fear. What if it bites me or what if I had been walking and hadn’t seen it there? When I am the hawk, I feel no fear about the course the snake follows. I can see how it is moving in the direction it needs to go. As with the real snake, the only danger of experiencing pain with the snake would be if I intentionally stepped into its path. All of this speaks to me of letting go of the need to control the changes going on in my life. Like the river, the direction and path are already created. My role is to simply follow where the water leads. So for today, I will stop trying to predict where things are going or to force things to happen. For today, I will act only when I feel called to act and spend the rest of the time enjoying the cool breeze, the warm sun, and the gently flowing water moving through the lush green world around me.
Love and blessings to all!

I see a butterfly pinned to a corkboard. The butterfly begins to twitch and then its wings open, pushing out the pins. It lifts off into a beautiful blue sky.
In Ted Andrew’s Animal Speak Pocket Guide, he says of butterflies, “New Birth: New love and joy are coming. Transformation is inevitable but will be easier than expected. Embrace the new beginnings.” The fact that the butterfly starts out pinned to a corkboard as if it is part of a science project is interesting to me. What does it mean that my joy and transformation is something pinned up to be studied? The fact that the butterfly comes to life suggests that while I have done a lot of work learning about how to live in love, perhaps I am now ready to actually begin living it.
Today, I will remember that I am already evolved into a creature able to live from love. I will allow myself to fully embrace this new reality and open my arms to bright skies and new horizons! As Louise Hay says on the I Can Do It calendar for this date, “Today, I trust that my future is in good hands.” Remembering this allows me to fully be present in the joy of today.
I pray it is so, and so it is!
Have a beautiful day filled with blue skies and unbounded happiness!
Happy Valentine’s Day! I thought it would be helpful to get a little guidance for the day ahead. I hope you find it helpful! Love to you all! Nancy
I am looking at a red rose from the top of the flower. The petals make curved patterns of light and dark. I am drawn to the shaded parts of the petals. There the deep red becomes almost black. I feel myself melting into one such place. I’m hidden in its folds and feel a gentle feeling of peace.
Roses are such interesting symbols. They have thorns while at the same time having such a lovely scent and beautiful petals. We are like that aren’t we? Lovely and prickly depending on our mood. When I imagine myself as the flower, I feel myself as the dark, still spaces and also as the bright light-filled quality as well. Sometimes, I am more drawn to one aspect or the other. Both, though, are always present.
Today, I will let myself rest in the hidden parts of myself, allowing their quietness to fill me with peace. Today, I will remember to love all of me, even the thorns.
I pray it is so, and so it is…
I see a tiny crab climbing up out of a hole in the sand. I am seeing things from the crab’s point of view. It is in this dark, sandy tunnel and there is a pinprick of light it is moving towards. The light is covered up from a shift in the sand, but the crab keeps climbing. It knows the light is still there even if it can’t see it.
We have just gone through a period of time that has required us to travel deep inside ourselves, searching for the truth of who we are and what we care about. The journey back to the light of day hasn’t been easy, and sometimes, just as is happening for the crab, the light isn’t visible. That doesn’t mean it isn’t there though. Like the crab, we just need to keep going.
Today, I will remember where I am going. I choose to love myself, the Earth, the Divine, and all the wonderful people in my world. Today, I will be like the crab and keep heading up toward the light.
I pray it is so, and so it is…
A Thanksgiving Gift For You…
Each week, I record a short inspirational recording sharing a technique or insight to empower those in my soul friends community. In September, I shared a simple yoga mudra I created to bring peace. The affirmation that came through with the technique fits so well with this Morning Musing that I decided to share it. It is 3 minutes long. You can access the link here: Meditation for Peace
Wishing you all a peaceful and joyous Thanksgiving!
