Magic Is

Magic is. . .

For one…. This amazing painting that graces the back side of my Fairy Tarot deck. She just looks like I want a fairy to look. It has sure been a long haul with school. I have forever homework with umpteen essays, books to read, articles to read, projects and presentations to do. A normal free day for me is 12 or more hours of work. Wow, I had no idea. The good news is that I am doing it.

I have a rather scholarly Shakespeare professor who I really enjoy listening to and learning from. However I took my rough draft for my first paper, that I had worked on for eighteen hours, and he hated it. I was gobsmacked and not in a good way. lol Thankfully I also have great non-corporeal professors who advise me and keep me straight. The scene in his office would be great in a film, at least from my perspective. So I shift gears, rearrange my schedule so I can get caught up yesterday. Reading The Age of Opportunity, by Dr. Steinberg, on the adolescent brain and development is just mind blowing. I am reading a chapter on “The Importance of Self Regulation,” and determination. He says “Tenacity wins over talent.” He goes on to say that in his profession at least 80% of his essays, or grant proposals are refused. Hmm. . . “I See” I say to myself, as I read further “You have to . . . review, revise, review, and revise again.” A different class than Shakespeare but what a timely bit of reading for me. My angel guide says, “You skip steps” I do. I try to write a perfect paper, all correct in formatting and structure the first time. I just learned that having your work critiqued and edited is part of the process. I have also learned there is something to be said to writing with pen and paper old school first. So much to learn.

Now on the lighter side, I LOVE Young Adult Literature, my professor is just an angel herself, and she gives us such good literature, and academic articles, and essays to read. I love it, and her. She is my new favorite professor. Don’t tell her though, okay? I am reading The House on Mango Street, and next up, The Red Umbrella. I think this teaching thing may just be my niche, that or writing. An essay we just read was on Contemporary Memoirs, it had so many inspirational ideas for teaching this genre of YA literature. I linked, The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros.

Lots of love everybody.

Hello my friends. I hope this day finds you in peace & joy. Here in the US we have Labor Day on Monday, so no work or school for us. I need the time to try and get caught up on all my homework, reading, watching, writing, and making presentations. I can honestly say that school has changed me in only the first couple of weeks. That is sort of awesome.

I just finished reading a beautiful piece of literature, Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe. It is the second of ten YA, (Young Adult) novels I will be reading this semester. It is an “American Book Award Winner,” by Benjamin Alire Saenz. Here is how it starts, or an excerpt from the first page.

“I was fifteen.

I was bored.

I was miserable.

As far as I was concerned, the sun could have melted the blue right off the sky.”

The story is tender, turbulent, heartfelt, and poetic. I highly recommend it. Have a hanky handy.

The fact that I have the ease and time to make a post is an indicator of how well my assignment went. I had to write a Research Critique in APA format. My initial response was one of panic and fear. Go figure. However, one thing I have learned this past summer is to stay in gratitude, and to have faith. It was not so easy but I got better at it. I have spent a good deal of time meditating the last few months, additionally I have had some very good communication with the angelic realm. I also believe in fairies, I do, I do! Speaking of fairies, I bought Doreen Virtue’s Fairy Tarot deck, the art is dreamy. Okay back on topic, so about a month ago I was meditating and calling on the archangels to come and heal me, guide me, and inspire me. As I called forth Archangel Gabriel, I saw the brightest of golden light and felt it in my body. I ask him, why he was coming in so strong? He said “To help you succeed.” Yeah! Nice huh?

So as I approached this daunting assignment, I kept myself calm, I read all the directions, and for me that is quite an accomplishment. Oh, and another thing. If you are so, so busy, you absolutely cannot procrastinate. I mean it isn’t possible. lol So I had done all the prep work, and fortunately the instructor had provided every tool for you to succeed. She gave you a template; an example; where to and how to locate the resources, and so on. The article I chose was on a study done on bullying, which I want to understand. Well surprisingly I just rolled threw it. I had to google and YouTube things like how to create a Running Header, take a screen shot and create and insert a table. Strangely you do need that stuff they teach you in College Algebra. Yeah, Right? I am a Secondary Ed. English major, but this is a “Ed. Psych” class. Will that math never go away? I am just sharing because I had no idea that I would have the entire paper completed with three days to spare. Thank you Gabriel. It is good to have friends in high places, and we all have friends in high places. Just saying.

On other fronts, Macbeth is being given to us slowly. The class is “Shakespeare and Performance” which now makes a lot of since to me now. He wrote the plays to be performed, so they are so much easier to understand when watching them performed. I am watching two versions, one a sort of classic take, HD, and Rupert Golds, Macbeth, on PBS. We have only unpacked the first four acts, and I have not watched ahead, primarily because I didn’t have time. I love all of my instructors. Everyone at ASU is awesome. I even bought a tee-shirt.

All my love, and don’t forget to ask for the angels help, talk to them, and listen to them. It has certainly worked for me. I testify.

My post now are going to be fewer, and farther between. The work load of school studies is rather intense, fun, but intense. Fortunately there are a few others my age or older than our peers, not that, that has ever been an issue. I begin this week working with a mentor teacher in her 8th grade Honor’s English class, as well as my 5 other classes. It has been one of the most information packed weeks of my life, and that is saying something, because I have had a few years here on Earth. I have a project due on Wednesday that is somewhat challenging, so please continue to send me good thoughts.

A tip I received from my intuitive resources: Make everything playful.

Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius: A Shift in How We Apply Ourselves Collectively

By: Carmen Di Luccio

Friday is my first day of classes at ASU. All is going well but everything is hectic. Looks like my internship is taking me to middle school and the 8th grade. My first class Shakespeare performance. First up Macbeth!  I just found out I got a scholarship that is going to be a great help. I am going to be a Busy Bee. Send me good mojo all.

Much love~

Eight Eight Lion’s Gate

28 Newlionsgate-portal-888-201528 reversedHappy Birthday to US!

From the plethora of information I have read, watched, and listened to, from my own intuitive, spiritual visions, and experiences that I am witnessing, of this uber and awesome paradigm shift. My summer has been a dozy, I don’t know about you but whoa! I have not had a stress free moment before last Monday when my residency issue was resolved at school. I wasn’t even sure I could go to school this semester, but I persevered. I guess I did deserve “The Diligent Diva Award” bestowed on me by The Education Department, and my advisor Julie, at Mesa Community College, because I am kind of surprised I had that kind of fortitude in me. Now I start school at Arizona State University in 2 weeks, I can hardly believe it is actually happening. I am very excited and a little scared and nervous. (Nervous laughter, and tears) I am really excited for the evolution on the world stage, I see it, I feel it, and I am so excited.

 This is a memorable day as my kitty Buster died on 8/8/2006, which would be triple 8’s. My new kitty, Sphinxy, an outdoor calico stray, got pregnant, had 5 kittens, which I captured and raised for adoption, 2 boys, Prince Fu, and Frankie Blue, were adopted together, and 3 girls, Princess Zebe, OMG, and Kamiko went to a rescue and I know they are well. We had to trap Shinxy to get her fixed, and that was an ordeal, but she came out great. I learned so much and got so much kitty love during that time.

So release the Old. Bring in the New! So much synchronicity, and so much magic. With that said I will share a couple of links regarding the 8/8 Lion’s Gate~
