Feelin’ kinda punk…

so I have not posted in a while. But my daily message from the Universe hit home today:

In case you haven’t noticed, Shari, the sun doesn’t always rise in crimson.
The wind doesn’t always blow from the south.
The rains don’t always fall on the plains.
And so must you allow for your own rhythms in time.
Always in love,
   The Universe

Just takin’ care of me…

I keep getting these #$%^& Messages from the Universe!

And they are all something I need to hear (but don’t necessarily want to hear them…)

I’d like to remind you, Shari, that there’s simply nothing you have to do – there’s no path you can’t walk away from, no person you have to make happy, and you don’t even have to work as hard as you now work – yet still, you can have it all.
Ah, abundance –
   The Universe

I’m not sure how the Universe knows, but it seems it does

Another message that I am unable to take in right now

For you, Shari, it’s never really been all about the cottage at the beach, a multimillion dollar bank account, or the adoration of fans, has it?
Okay, sure, you could roll with it…
Instead, it’s been about having a life that allows for the expression of your creativity and exchanging your rare and special gifts with the world. To be yourself, no matter the cost, laughing often, and knowing to your core the meaning of love, friendship, and hot chocolate on a freezing cold night.
Just wanted you to know that I know this about you. And I think it’s just great how you’re imagining the latter when you visualize these days. Especially the laughter and love.
Pretty much got you pegged, huh?

I am having a really hard time right now…

personal family stuff, and I am just in tears.
But I opened an email from a new astrology site that I started following recently, and found this:

The world is changing through a critical mass attuning to their hearts as their highest authority…
Inner truth is leading the way home to create a truly civilised society based on ethical principles that align with natural laws of the universe.

So if this resonates with your heart…take heart, you are not alone. We open our throat chakra & heal the world when we dare to speak the innermost convictions of our hearts that offer us divine truth.

Blessings on your day,
Not making me any less weepy, but I am heartened. This situation will resolve itself, and while some of the results will be devastating, others not so much. I can only hope.

Message from the Universe

Odd, isn’t it, how folks will look back to great milestones in their life – to when they met someone, fortuitously changed careers, or were somehow found to be in exactly the right place at exactly the right time – and consider such incidents turning points?
Because actually, Shari, the real turning points in any life always occur well before such manifestations, in the moments when they finally began thinking, speaking, and behaving like never before.
Hey, it works –

My Eclipse pics

After driving all night Sunday night (I arrived at about 6 AM in Kansas City) I drove around aimlessley looking for the perfect spot to watch the eclipse. I drove by the stadiums, large parking lots, etc. but that was not the atmosphere I wanted. I looked at google maps (Goddess Bless Google!) and saw a large green parklike area north of the city. I found this charming pond, cemetery and small church. Found my spot!Pond that was not part of the church property… gate to nowhere that would be my reference pointAt about 9:30, a bad storm approaching… with thunder and lightening (this is another cemetery, what can I say I have a thing for cemeteries… love looking at the old headstones. But I am not posting here…) There were no hotel rooms to be had… so I climbed into the back of the Santa Fe on my comforter and took a 1.6 hour power nap.woke to clearing skies and went to breakfast. 1-70 was at a standstill as the eclipse starting happening… I was heading back to m spot after breakfast. this is the reference point at 12:54 CSTat 1:00 at 1:06

at 1:08:29

AT 1:08:46at 1:10:19

during the totality the guard light at the church came onand then it sttarted to lighten up.

I guess I was just on the fringe of the totality zone, as the sky did not darken completely and I did not see the stars… It did get quite cool and a breeze picked up. The totality was amazing and I saw the chromosphere, Pretty amazing stuff, this science. Wish that I had had a telescope…

All in all worth the last minute trip to Kansas City and back. I was very impressed with Kansas City, it is a very pretty town. Even though they had 9 inches of rain that night, but I was already ensconsed in a Motel 6 in Joplin, Missouri when all of that happened.

And I did 5 states, within 4 days: Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri. None of them were new states tho… drat!
