Hello Happy Friday. A lovely Spring like day here. A day that was gifted me in my Spring break from school I had committed to work today, but alas it got cancelled so change of plan. Oh and I cannot read the text embedded in the image but bless them for sharing the image. I have been listening to my favorite astrologers this fine morning trying to get an idea of what is up? Sometimes the understanding is beyond me. The image and title allude to the Virgo Full Moon on March 12. I will share a few links below. One is from The Leo King, David Palmer, my son (from another mother) actually we have never met except on FB but I just feel like David is my son. lol He has his new fiancee on the show with him and it made me so happy. lol Crazy huh? I was happy he had chosen well.
I was enjoying my magical garden patio, which as I have shared is darn near Xanadu to me. I was drawn to water my trees and plants, I just love the connection that you get with nature while doing such a simple task. I had created a puddle of mud at the foot of the patio, and I was compelled to just put my feet in and squish it around. If you haven’t done this in awhile, do it. Afterward I see my foot imprints left behind, sort of cool. It took my thoughts to the footprint of the guru, perhaps as I was listening to Ravi Shankar at the time. Honestly I have been hoping for a butterfly sighting . . . the day is young.
Also I have my outdoor kitty’s baby daddy to contend with, this Tom cat is huge, I mean at night he will scare you with his howl and scary gold eyes, he must be part Siamese or Persian as he has long hair, which is grey and white spots, and a slightly smushed face. Did I mention his howl would wake the dead and he is huge? I have named him Brutus. Both of his male offspring, Prince Fu, who is now named Carl, as I understand, and his brother Frankie, look like him. Brutus needs to be trapped and fixed, Pray for a good outcome for Brutus and all concerned.
Oxford deadline has come and gone but I still haven’t taken the flyer from my wall and it still has some unknown relevance, My tale bone is still sore but much better. Merlin, wizards, fairies and Tors still paint my minds imaginings. I have a unit yet to plan for my Methods of Teaching Language class, I am thinking “Unit of Thrones” one that would include Arthurian Grail Lore, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, a book of choice either, The Wicked Day, or any of Mary Stewart’s, Merlin Trilogy, Silver Eve (A YA novel female protagonist) or The Mist of Avalon. I would like to include Shakespeare, but a unit is 3 or 4 weeks, even the above is ambitious.
So I best get to scholarship essay writing. My internship is going real well but I am having a tough go of it in my Modern Grammar class so good vibes in that direction, or aka prayers etc… Much love everyone be well. The John Lennon lyrics, “strange days indeed” just popped in my head this morning, and the song lyric does not really fit the mood of the day which is light but nonetheless I share the song it may have a message (Oh of course there is the Shankar Lennon connection).
Peace & Love
Happy synchronicity abounds on May 25th, annually. It is my Fourth Year Blogiversary. My very first friend here at Word Press was om, and her blog, EyesOfOdysseus, was my first followed, or one of the first, and today happens to be her birthday as well. Imagine that, and we only discovered this synchronicity last year. om is a very good friend, who I cherish, and love dearly.
So Happy Birthday to om, and to my blog, bluebutterfliesandme~
I know that we have a great year in store for us!
Thank you everyone who supports me here. I wish I had more time to visit and read you all. You all have great stories, articles, insights, inspiration, talent, and so on. I mean it, and I do value you. I am humbled by everyone. Lots of Gratitude & Big love~
Once again all three paintings by the mega talented, Elizabeth Blaylock.
Things have been CRAZY. lol Thankfully according to this dear astrologer, it’s chilling out.
I felt relieved after reading it.
May 9 – 15, 2016
You should feel a distinct change in the atmosphere this week, one that offers a cathartic liberation from feeling the doldrums, and melancholy. For all the ups and downs, these past few months have been very wisening which has greatly expanded your capacity to handle contradiction and paradox . . .
. . . Since January 7th, Jupiter has been in retrograde and has intermittently been squaring Saturn in Sagittarius. This Jupiter retrograde period has offered a magnifying glass with which to study the contents of your character. Agonizing though it may have been, in order to taste the fruits of wisdom, you must acknowledge your most petty flaws and transmute them into strengths of character. Because these planetary motions have anchored much of your energy into this intense self-analysis, your sense of good luck and optimism in the external world may have felt hindered.
But this week will bring a great resuscitation of your spirits! The Moon will be waxing, which naturally builds up the momentum needed to realize more of your ambitions and attract more support for your work. But the Moon’s energy is only a small part of the benevolence afforded to you this week.
Read complete forecast here.
I invite you to go into the image, go into your garden, listen to the beautiful music, and enter that place of magic. Create your fairy dust by breathing as a power plant. The 4 Point breath is a super generator. 1) Inhale through your nose, to say 6 to 8 counts, deep into the diaphragm, 2) hold the breath for the same 6 to 8 count, 3) release the breath from your mouth, to a 6 to 8 count. 4) NOW, hold the empty space for the 6 to 8 count, inhale through the nostrils at the same rate of 6 to 8 count, and repeat. You can tell when you have repeated the cycle enough times, start with 3, and see how it feels. It causes your cells to just vibrate. This is a breathing exercise so do as your health permits.
More on me later~~~ Go dream, breathe.
Magical Mystical Moonbeams all~
Healing love to Linda
. . . and Windy has wings to fly, above the clouds, above the clouds.
Who’s reaching out to capture a moment?
It is once again that time of year….”What time is that?” you say? $19.98 wind chimes on sale for $1.98!!! I have been patiently waiting for the wind chimes to go on sale, I had my eye on one with a deep beautiful tone. I went into Walgreen’s everyday, “They on sale yet?” “No.” “On sale yet?” “NO.” So I let a week go by, they went on sale, and somebody else got the wind chime. lol Still I got several new ones…. I love my wind chimes. Ding, dong, dingle dingle, dingle, clankity, dingle, dong, dong…….
The change of summer to fall is in the air. Fall here is as awesome as Spring, and Winter here, in Arizona is beautiful. Yea, I survived summer, when I tell you HOT, you have no idea, but I am blessed and my house was cool all summer. As Fall and my birthday next month approaches I feel so excited, and enthused.
Spiritually, socially, culturally, and cosmically things feel good. There appears world unrest (Sorry but I do not watch news), I know it can look bad, but I believe sometimes old paradigms have to go so new ones can begin. I have posted a lot on Quantum thinking, as my fellow Scorpio sister, Ms. Linda does as well. Speaking of which Linda is hosting an apropos blogging challenge, Time Machine Blogging Challenge, come and join us, it will be great fun. I will add a synchronous story that just happened last night. I ran across a Bruce Lipton video, Biology of Belief, that I had stashed it in my Watch Later playlist, so I mosey over last night before bed to watch a bit of it. Firstly he starts talking about the same material we are covering in my Physical Anthropology class on DNA, cells . . . but from a current scientific view, fascinating. Then I see 111/111, this was the 111th video. I was just very amused by that. Oh I added a video so now there are 112, but Bruce is still the 111th.
All is well with school, and my life in general.
Namaste & Big Love

Transforming Your Inner Victim
I Have an Inner Victim? Me? No way!
By Joyce Jackson
Achieving our desires, including love, career success and happiness, involves dissolving our blocks. We are naturally wired for love, success, happiness and security. However, we go about throwing all kinds of blocks and walls in our way based on fear. Wrapping ourselves in the cape of victimization is one of those blocks. Dissolving and transforming those inner victims of ours smooth’s the way to fulfillment.
No one likes to admit it, but we all have elements of an inner victim inside us. It can creep its way into our lives in sabotaging ways. When you can recognize some of the characteristics of your inner victim, you can change it and dissolve the blocks that hold you back.
Here are some clues your inner victim is at work:
- Generalizing statements: a.”Everyone in my profession is like this.” b. “If I’m going to have THIS, I’m just going to have to sacrifice THAT.”
- Comparisons: a. “Everyone else is doing well or accomplishing their goals.” b. “If my ex (mother, father, sibling, boss, politician, the economy, etc) hadn’t interfered then things would be fine.”
- All or Nothing Thinking: a.”This relationship is the best one I’ve ever had. If it doesn’t work out, then there’s no one else out there for me.” b. “If I don’t get a publisher, then there’s no way I can get my book out there.”
- Procrastination & Avoidance: a.”This just isn’t the right time to make a change.” b. “I’m just too busy to address this or get this done.”
- Brooding: a.”Nothing good can come of this.” b. “I’ve tried to change that but it doesn’t work.”
- Blame: a. Putting everything in the hands of someone else – even God. b. Refusing to accept responsibility for the role we play in our own drama.
Add up all those statements and this doesn’t sound like a person whom any of us would want to be around. However, we all hold some of those beliefs some of the time! You CAN do something about it and dismiss the victim.
Here are some trusted ways you can send them packing and transform the inner victim into the inner champion: first, take careful notice of how and when these feelings and beliefs are surfacing and be willing to challenge them every time they arise. If there is more than one area, just pick one. Ask yourself, “Am I willing to accept that an alternative possibility may also be true?”
Second, ask yourself what details you are willing to change. That is the biggest step in real, permanent transformation.
Third, focus on the bigger picture, on themes rather than the story. Sometimes we get so caught up in extraneous details they redefine the story altogether. Use the I Need Principle, as in, “I need a job.” For example, a sour economy doesn’t mean that you can’t look for another job. But that detail derails a lot of people. That’s when we lose sight of what’s most important: of who we are and what we really need.
The details don’t matter! When you redirect your focus on the main issue, it dissolves the inner victim and allows your power center, will and source of boundaries. That’s where you dissolve the victim and let your true self shine through.
I will share my thoughts on Non-victimization at another time ❤
