Despacito

Hip hip hooray, sister saves the day. Twenty days without a phone, it was weird. We are all so used to the security that we feel connected by the device. I think I took it in stride. Fortunately for me my sister had just moved up a generation on her phone from our ancient iPhone 4’s to a 5, so she gave me her old phone, thank the stars, just in time. I have a research paper to write among other things, and not being able to work at home is tough. Student teaching is all set, so yeah.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends, and those across the pond and beyond, I will be giving thanks for your friendships as well. ❤

Unplugged

Things happen for a reason, and it is so cool when you can see the wonder in these (in my case) Mercurial mishaps, like breaking my phone. They had to order the part and when they got it, they broke it, so repeat the process. I have been without a phone or the internet for eight days now. In those eight days amazing things have happened. I mean it’s not like I never get on the internet, because I can go places that have it. I have been unplugged by the universe; I have accomplished major amounts of schoolwork, written a revisionist Cinderella, and done a lot of reading. It has forced me to shift my focus. I have to plan ahead, what information or downloads do I need to work offline. I don’t know but it has been different.

I was thinking of calling this post, “Build It and They Will Come.” Why, you do ask?  If you are a blog friend, or reader you may recall our first sighting of the African Love Birds? Well a wild population has managed to flourish in the Phoenix area. I have seen one in my back yard, and my boyfriend saw a flock land in the yard, but I did not. Yesterday as I was chilling in my backyard garden and they came. The African Love Birds came and put on a magical show for me. They were eating seed from my glass flower feeders in the trees, they sat on branches in pairs and looked at me, they got on my bird swing, and they did every cute thing imaginable. As they would fly around playing it was an explosion of color like a Monet painting. Oh my god, I was just in heaven. I take that as a very good sign.

I have my student teaching position confirmed for Spring, that is good. I am already asking for letters of recommendation et cetera. The Grimm Brothers essay is up, also an A+.

I should be plugged in and back online later today, or tomorrow.

Parrot as Totem:

You are a natural diplomat and have the ability to mediate opposing forces into compromise and understanding. You have an innate understanding of color, it’s symbolism and it’s healing powers. You naturally are able to use color for healing purposes not one with your self but with others as well. You know exactly when to speak and when to stay silent and you rarely participate in gossip.

Ask Alice

White Rabbit

The rabbit-hole went straight on like a tunnel for some way, and then dipped suddenly down, so suddenly that Alice had not a moment to think about stopping herself before she found herself falling down a very deep well.

Either the well was very deep, or she fell very slowly, for she had plenty of time as she went down to look about her and to wonder what was going to happen next.

Lewis Carroll

Hello everyone. I hope that everyone is well and prospering. Just four and a half weeks left of classes, then semester end, January Student Teaching. Things are happening so quickly. So guess what I was reading last weekend? Come on you will never guess. Okay, yes, I was reading Alice and Wonderland, or Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, the original title. Oh and she (the professor) wants us to use a Psychoanalytical lens, never done that before (joking of course), however there is so very much to analyze I had to find one thing to focus on, and one that has not been done to death. I still have a bit more writing to do to unpack just this one aspect. I do not think that I had actually ever read it. Crazy stuff. I liked reading that Alice Liddell was incessant that Carroll write the story down, as he would just tell it to her and her sister. So we really do have her to thank for it. Alice Liddell needed money towards the end of her life, and had to sell the manuscript that Carroll had gifted her.

So, my darling sister send me this today, our horoscope for October 24, 2017

Your perceptions are accurate and your reasoning is shrewd. Nevertheless, you may tumble down a rabbit hole of doubt if you mix up facts and fantasies today. There’s nothing wrong with meandering along a stream of consciousness if you know when to step back onto dry land. Fortunately, your daydreams widen your vistas of possible futures. Exploring many alternative realities increases your chances for success as long as you can keep your eyes on your destination.

If You Ask Me

If You Ask Me                    

By

Sindy Simms

 

If you ask me, ask me who

Who would paint a butterfly blue?

 

If you ask me, ask me who

Who would hang red feathers from string

Who would hear the angels sing?

 

If you ask me, ask me who

Who would dream a fairy tale

And who would tell it very well?

 

If you ask me, ask me who

Who would count the stars for you?

 

I would answer

It is me

I do

I will paint a butterfly blue

I hang red feathers on string

I can hear the angels sing

I can dream a fairy tale

And I can tell it very well

I would count the stars for you

 

If you ask me, ask me who

It is me

I do

Is life not interesting? I mean, Wow. Things in the world have gone cuckoo! Not that I give these things focus because I just do not. However I give my awareness to my life, to my heart, and to my mind. Plus I pray, or send love to areas that need it. I have often written about intentional denial, that is what I still believe, as without, so within, or visa versa.

What I am learning is how much I can grow, and learn, and change. At my age I am still observing how much editing needs to be done on me. That is cool. I am finally learning how to catch ego at its business and deal with it faster. I will give you an example of what I mean; I did not receive a scholarship from the teaching college, I was hurt, and I was angry, and I took it like a three year old. However, I discussed it with wise women who helped me to understand and move past it, it took a good five days (I must reduce that time).

So this was the first week of school. I had my schedule set, I had my textbooks, ready set go. Then scary English professor, I mean scary, she assigned homework last Thursday for midnight the first day of school (who does that). The content was brutal and violent. I am not going to name it as this is public. I thought I could do it. As I read the novel I had to keep my hand on my solar plexus. I was becoming super stressed feeling all my attention would be diverted from my other five classes to meet the demands from this professor. Here’s the thing; I did not do my due diligence, I did not look up the professor or the class for reviews. Always, always, do that! I got so stressed I got a cold, and for what? For no reason whatsoever. I dropped that class and now I will be analyzing Fairy Tales. Yes, of course. I put myself through all of that. When will I ever learn? lol Well, I am working on it.

Abundant World

Gayatri Mantra

Yum, Yum, Yum, the mantra for Day 22 of Chopra Oprah 21 Day meditation series, Desire and Destiny. I was registered but I did not avail myself the opportunity until today. What is with me? Anyway it was a phenomenally beautiful guided meditation connecting the light from the heart center with others around the globe. It was so powerful and positive on this very relevant time astrologically as I glean from the astrologers. I did not know that Yum is a heart chakra mantra. How fascinating that we use it as a word to express our Pavlovian responses to tactile taste.

The centering thought was “Love and Abundance for All”. I am sorry I missed the series but 4 are still available today.

Happy Full Moon Lunar Eclipse.

Lion Love

All things Leo & the Lion. Normally August is not my favorite month, it always seems to be full of challenge in years past. This August from all I hear looks challenging as well, however it can be channeled into a lot of positive collective power, what with the upcoming eclipses and The 888 Lion’s Gate ad infinitum.  I will share links and leave it to the astrologers to explain it all best.

For me it all got good when I did The Lion People (Sirius) Transmission: Connecting with the Blue Lodge Masters , by Steve Nobel. I did not expect such a glorious experience as I had. I was lying on my bed and I felt their immense love pour into me as I saw these regal beings approach me in my minds eye. It was only I can explain pure god source love, my eyes filled with tears and all I could do was repeat, “Thank you, thank you, I love you.” as I just could not contain all the love I was feeling. I can only share with you that it was beautiful.

I have spent my summer reading and studying for the most part preparing myself for my last semester of classes at ASU before I student teach in the Spring before graduating. I have perused the charity shops collecting books for my class library, and dreaming of the classroom I will have in a year. A week ago I came across The Horse and His Boy, by C. S. Lewis. I thought that I had read The Chronicles of Narnia, but I do not recall reading this book. On that same day I picked up a film I had seen and liked years ago called, An Education, an arty European coming of age story about a high school senior in London, who is preparing to attend Oxford. She meets an older man who romances not only her, but her parents. In the film an excuse given to the parents so that he may take their 17 year old daughter away for the weekend, is that she can meet C. S. Lewis at Oxford, which was just a ruse. Anyway interesting as when I did the Lion People of Sirius activation I kept thinking of Aslan from the books, and now in the same day I get a book and it is referenced in the movie. Cool Leo the Lion beans!

The Leo King

The Leo King Pleiadian Transmission

Oh, and then yesterday at the charity shop I see a book, and I actually misunderstood the title, The Return of Arthur Conan Doyle. My mind saw, The Return of Arthur, and repeated Arthur Conan Doyle, I was thinking Arthur Pendragon of course but NO! What I came across was a text that is “supposedly ACD speaking beyond the grave after his death. I have not ventured far into it as I am reading Lewis. Interesting. ACD was a huge spiritualist as you know, so. . . Interesting.
