Honoring the Gifts of the Day before Bed

Offerings of the Day: Finding Gifts In All



We can reframe bad days by spending some time before going to bed each night to review the gifts we received that day.

You Are Magic





This is where I am today.





At the end of this week we (my hubby and I) will be heading to New Mexico one last time (at least one last time as a resident there) to close on our old home and get the rest of our stuff, a few things we left to stage the home. wow, this is closure.

My little update for today

My hubby's FB/email account was hacked, a bit of a stress, and we are having a newly constructed retainer wall repair in our backyard due to drainage issues. Never a dull moment.





But ... I am listening to old Don Henley, so good, so fine, and I am getting this house cleaned up and sparkling today... "all she wants to do is dance, dance, dance." (Don Henley)

Toltec Teachings

Toltec quotes:

by Kristopher Raphael



"Our Dreamer is much, much larger than we are. On the level of Destiny the Dreamer is the one in control. As the leaf is a part of the tree, we are part of our Dreamer. However we are a part with a "mind of its own". It is this mind of ours with its beliefs, wounds, patterns, attitudes and ego that get us into trouble, and convince us that we are separate from that which we really are,… Continue

Mastering the Dream

Your life is the manifestation of your dream; it is an art. And you can change your life anytime if you aren't enjoying the dream. Dream masters create a masterpiece of life; they control the dream by making choices.

- don Miguel Ruiz



I want to start today's blog by saying that miguel… Continue

Art of Surrender Series: The Power and Practice of Prayer

Yesterday I was contemplating taking that leap of faith. I didn't realzie then that what I meant, and surely, what my inner guide was… Continue

Art of Surrender Series - Mantras and Journals

Today I am continuing with my Art of Surrender series.



We had snow again last night. Again! Uggh! and just when spring was here (at least I thought it was here) and I was just getting warm again. In fact, the snow in Colorado is still coming down right now.



No worries. I'm going to have an amazing day. I can feel it. And it's not the snow that has me working on surrender. It's a bigger practice for me altogether. But with the weather… Continue
