My cards

I just found a post that I never posted, it stayed a draft. This is my tarot cards from Juliana Coles’ Grimoire class in October. We created two tarot cards. I used the blue floral as the backs of both cards. My personality card I drew was The World-Universe all about completion, the end of one phase and the very expansive beginning of another. My card is a beautiful woman surrounded by the world, nature and butterflies. My Soul Card is The Empress. The card that I created is the face of the Empress surrounded by nature – crystals, shells, flowers and butterflies. Empress reflects her life giving powers and the forces of nature and instinct play a role in everything.I enjoyed this class and enjoyed creating these two cards. I gained a lot of insight into myself when creating these cards!

Latest missive from the Universe

I get a daily message from the Universe, and sometimes I like to share them. This is one of those days…


More love, Shari, means laughing longer, living lighter, running faster, jumping higher, starting sooner, staying later and a zippier artistic sensibility.

At least for some people… you know, hypothetically.


More love,
The Universe

Inspiration is everywhere

I get a daily “Note from the Universe” and sometimes they are so right on that I just have to share them.

Today is one of those days, so here goes:

Finally, Shari, the Official Top Ten Spiritual Ways to Defeat Boredom, Make Friends, Find Love, Trim Down, Shape Up, Discover Your Purpose, Make a Fortune, and Shine Your Light are…

1. Take action.
2. Show up.
3. Lean into it.
4. Start anywhere.
5. Keep busy.
6. Get out more.
7. Ask for help.
8. Shake more hands.
9. Give more hugs.
10. Don’t stop.

You were already visualizing, right?

Another spot on message from the Universe

The Universe sends me an email message every day, and this one is spot on… (they usually are, but some are more right on than others…)

Do you think it would be cheating, Shari, knowing all that I know, if I placed a bet on your inevitable happiness, success, and saunter?

Good. Because I have. It was called the “Big Bang,” and every moment of every day I walk in your shoes.

Shari, I knew what I was doing.

My message from the universe today

I get an email a day from the Universe (you can too…. Thoughts become things… choose the good ones! ®

and today’s message just zeroed in on my thoughts and musings this week.

For all things and non-things that you may ever want, Shari, understand that sometimes the fastest way to get them is to forget them, and to focus instead on just being the most amazing human being you can be. At which point all of your heart’s desires, spoken or unspoken, will be drawn to you more powerfully than a magnet is drawn to steel.

Have an amazing day,
    The Universe

It is a good thing that the universe knows my name…

I have recently retired from 40 years in the corporate world, and there have been adjustments that I did not even imagine I would be making. Going on 4 months retired, I have really loosened up my expectations (including my level of income) and the changes are all worth it. I have never been happier, and have given up a lot of things to the Universe, especially since we are on a first name basis.

Things have been coming to me, not all at once, but coming up as my anxiety level is starting to increase over various issues. All that I need to do is let go and what is meant to be will come my way.

So much better than the driven, hurry up, corporate mindset! This morning I got up and fed the cats (my daily first thing in the morning task), had my cup of tea, and was reading email when I realized that I was sleepy. Even though I had just got out of bed less than a hour ago, I went in and stretched out on my bed and just relaxed. I was not able to go to sleep, but I spent time looking at the incredibly blue, cloudless sky and admired the Ficus plant that is taking over my headboard.

After that refreshing interlude (only about 20 minutes) I got up invigorated and took my morning walk. If I am involved in email, facebook, etc. I often do not take this walk, so I was proud of my self for taking time (two days in a row) to walk.

Just having the option of going back to bed, in case I need to, is a very freeing feeling and I LOVE IT!

BTW if I am not booked in the afternoon I sometimes take a NAP! Love that too…
