Blog Birthday Bash

 

 

Blue Butterflies & Me is 7 years old today. Being as blogging started as a fluke, it has remained a consistent part of my life. it is also my first blog buddy’s birthday, Ody Mama, sadly she is too busy to blog, but I have her on the phone. Happy Birthday girl!

First year of teaching done, time for some cake.

Love you all! Thank you for being in my life.

I still love this woman’s work. Happy almost Spring. Spring break from school anyways. I have just about finished my first year teaching and lived to tell the tale. I survived a state audit but will I survive this influenza that I caught? My god! If you have had it, you have my deepest sympathy.

Ashputtle is part of Ace’s fairy tale series, and has always been a favorite, “Cinderella”, of the ashes. Like the phoenix she will rise, she soars to the pinnacle, the top of the heap. In the spirit of the painting I published my retelling of the Grimm classic “Ashputtle”, and it is called, “Bad Cindy“. I am sure it is full of typos and grammar errors but it was now or never.

Happy Almost Spring everyone. I went wind chime shopping yesterday, and I bought an adorable lizard sculpture I named Lenny the Lizardy.

Cha Cha Changes?

The full moon in Aries has been brutal but beneficial. My life appears to be on track but boy has it been difficult, for like five months now. Is it ever going to let up in intensity? Lol. One thing I have learned about myself through all of this is that I am stronger and more resilient than I believed I was.

So at school today my framed diploma that is (not yet hung), fell over and broke my green, good luck, Chinese cat statue. Seriously! One of my favorite, adorable, students shouts “Karma” from across the room, which clearly it is. It is as symbolically interesting as the time I saw my first scorpion and killed it with the heavy volume of Grimm’s Fairy Tales. Except, this time does not really feel like a positive. I went to what I considered the best source to help me explain this symbolic occurrence, the iChing. The readings are usually spot on, cutting to the core of the matter, this readying is no exception. I digress below is the reading, It was very deep and a bit intimidating.

 

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.

Namaste

Number Nine

Getting to the point where your consciousness is expanded and your soul is fully awake is not an easy place to get to. It’s not impossible, it just takes a bit of time. If anyone is looking for a quick fix or a magic pill to get them to this state, you’re on the wrong planet. To awaken your soul takes a bit of persistence, some patience and faith. It won’t happen overnight but you can make it happen. The result?

A beautiful soul and energy that can appreciate love and manifest anything into being. Some say this is new age thinking and they are probably right. In my opinion, those whom aren’t open to at least a slight amount of awakening will miss out on hidden beauty the world has to offer.

What is it that only awakened souls know and completely understand?

  1. Reincarnation.

Always a heated topic. Either you believe in it or you simply don’t. There’s no in between here. Those with awakened souls get the concept of learning new things and expanding to prepare for rebirth.

  1. Life after death.

Being freed from your human suit into the spiritual realm is something awakened souls might actually look forward to. The spiritual place is one of love, light and free from pain. Who wouldn’t want to enter there?

  1. Our life’s purpose.

Knowing what you are here for and actively pursuing it is something these souls will do with determination and an open mind. They understand they are here for a reason and make sure they are in line with their purpose a t all times.

  1. Time for reflection.

Reflecting on our lives keeps us accountable for our soul’s purpose. There may be a time when we slip away from our true vision and purpose. Reflecting is important for us to steer us back in the direction we belong. Not only is it important, it’s necessary.

  1. True love.

There is no other love. The awakened soul loves all beings and creatures and does not judge. Unconditional love is the purest form. There is an acceptance and a respect only these souls will understand. There is no judging or hate here.

  1. Responsibility and accountability.

They are aware o f who and what they are and value the importance of being responsible for their beliefs and staying true to their purpose. These souls are open to redemption if they required.

  1. Nothing is impossible.

They are open to receiving anything that will truly serve them and won’t take manifestation lightly. The power of manifesting can be abused and awakened souls are completely aware of this power. They only manifest what they need, not for greed or materialistic tendencies, but to nourish their soul s and help them live out their purpose.

  1. We are all one.

Each and every one of us are part o f the bigger and beautiful collective that is Universe. We understand that we all have everything we already need inside of us to live beautiful lives filled with love and light.

  1. Transformation is necessary.

Awakened souls are fully aware of what no longer serves them and what needs to take place in order to transform into the light being that they long to be.

To be an awakened soul is like nothing you’ve ever experienced before. They have an aura around them that is warm and beautiful. You will recognize them instantly and want to be around them more. They are natural healers and radiate love and light.  Becoming one will be one of the most liberating thing s you can ever do for yourself. There will be no hate, no judgement and only love.

Happy Birthday om!
The birth of my blog has truly birthed happiness and good friends. Thank you all so much for not only supporting my blog, but for supporting me and my life. I recall making the journey alone from Louisiana to Arizona driving a U-Haul truck and pulling a car in high winds, but I knew that my blog friends were with me and keeping me in their thoughts and prayers. This amazing community has helped me grow spiritually, creatively and consciously. I have made some really great friends here, and I love you all.
Thank you all so very much~
Namaste

Grace

Hexagram 22

Like a sacred fire lighting up the night sky, this hexagram is about the beauty of form – the grace of the material world. When something is pleasing to the eye, it can fuel success and happiness. This is a favorable time to begin something new, alter one’s wardrobe or redecorate. Adornment brings confidence and freedom. Enjoy the shifting appearances, but don’t over indulge in them or they will distract you from true value.
