3 Years in the Making

Fireworks_red_(1)

Happy 1-11 everyone!

Happy 3rd birthday aka blogiversary to litebeing chronicles!

It is triple exciting that my 3rd blogging year is on 1-11. It is 3 on steroids.

Number 3 is the essence of the Trinity  –  mind, body, spirit and is the threefold nature of Divinity.  The number 3 symbolizes the principle of ‘growth’ and signifies that there is a synthesis present – that imagination and an outpouring of energy is in action. To learn more about the magic of 3, please visit this blast from the past.

I wish I had completed this draft yesterday because today’s news of David Bowie’s passing shocked and saddened me. He is one of my favorite musicians/performers and I recently learned he is also an Aquarius rising!  I have been looking to see how this startling news connects with this third year of my blogging journey. This is what I have discovered:

Creativity is a life force and all material beings were created into this form. David Bowie apparently knew his condition was terminal and kept using his creative spark to bring more music onto the planet. As I lived my life this year one thought made a regular appearance ” I can use this for my blog.” I sometimes see myself existing here simply to blog. There is a very compelling quality inherent in my desire to write. While 3 years seems like a short amount of time, I don’t really remember my life prior to taking this step. While I hold many of my memories intact, my life has changed so incredibly. I doubt I even fully understand the impact of this change. Or ever will understand. I am becoming more and more comfortable sitting with mystery. While my curiosity is as fertile as ever, my willingness to receive information at the Divine Time has increased.

We breathe, grow, see, hear, touch, taste, love, fear, learn, forget, remember, awaken, breathe…..

Until we cease to breathe.

I want to continue my stay on Earth with love in my heart and creation emanating from each heartbeat. I can choose to say 2015 was a year of illness and loss or I can choose to say that all is well NOW. Both are true.

Around ten years ago another wise Capricorn advised me during a rough patch to ask myself how I was feeling in that very moment. What a revelation it was to discover that I was worry-free ( peaceful) in the now. I was surprised at the time to see how effective mindfulness can be. It is as effective now as it was over ten years ago. I am grateful that this very moment is all that is. My moods seem to shift much more quickly nowadays and without much effort. This awareness brings me comfort and leaves me enthusiastic about what else awaits me. Perhaps my vibration is rising?

These are the posts from the WordPress Year in Review report that got the most views in 2015.

  1. Scorpio ~ ahhhhh
  2. A Whole New World?
  3. Time Machine Blogging Challenge: It is Off the Chain. Whadya Waiting for? Join Us!
  4. Mosaic and Pointillism Art as Unity Consciousness
  5. Before Midnight – I’ll love you long after you’re gone, gone, gone 

It is interesting that they are all very different in focus – freeform astro- poetry, music, trippy time travel, art, and film. The Scorpio and Before Midnight blogs are from 2013, which means they have staying power. This makes me smile…

This report also indicates that readers respond to a variety of content. I expect to still blog about art, music, film, books, pop culture, and astrology, and much more; typically as they apply to everyday magic. Some may wonder why I do not have a conventional astrology blog. The reasons are many, but here is the short answer: I prefer to share astro-musings as it suits me. I am not content to report on every astro-happening. It is not my style. There are so many writers who do a fantastic job in this vein. I rather wait for inspiration to strike and then an idea is made manifest.

I am a story-teller. At least today I am. Tomorrow I may shift into another mode. I once fancied myself a novelist, poet, screenwriter. I love to tell stories and evoke questions and discussion. This is my thing. I am so grateful that people respond to my writing. It is also incredible how I never know what becomes ” popular” among my posts. Rather than create to please others, I pray that what interests me will find its way to those who may benefit. I write because I must. It is a way of being. I never take it for granted for it is a gift.

A heartfelt thanks to Matt Wullenweg for creating WordPress. Happy 32nd Birthday Matt! Thank you for allowing me to say Hello World exactly 3 years ago today. I also want to acknowledge my fellow bloggers and readers who influence me tremendously. A striking photograph, a passing comment, or a clever turn of a phrase may send me off into an alternate universe where ideas are born. Thank you for being you and sharing this lifetime with me.

What does the future hold? I honestly don’t know. I am drawn to more discussions on ascension, everyday magic, the awakening process, unity consciousness,the love revolution of Matt Kahn, the lure of our dreams, and how inconvenience and risk-taking change my nature. I am blessed with a treasure trove of ideas that keep glowing during my darkest hours. Thank you for glowing with me.

namaste, litebeing

As a tribute to David Bowie and all artists everywhere, I will end with this anthem of my youth that still raises my heart rate whenever I hear it :

Spirit clearly approves ( look at the length of the video). What have I been saying for 3 years? Magic is everpresent.

  2. Happy Blogiversary, Linda! I liked what you wrote about not remembering life before blogging. Ha! It is amazing isn’t it!? The discoveries we make in ourselves and others through this medium for exploration and expression are wonderful.

    Hope you have a great year ahead, and looking forward to more art, astrology, story and reflection as only you can serve it up!

    Love

    1. Hi Michael,

      Thank you for the heartfelt wishes. It is true that taking the leap to blog has opened my life up in ways beyond my imagination. I think it is truly amazing what we have all created together, bringing us closer to the world beyond “the dream”.

      I appreciate your friendship and your enthusiasm for my writing.

      love, Linda

  3. Hello Linda!

    I have to wish you Happy Blogiversary! 3 Years! ~ Whooo~
    It’s really been fun. So glad that we are connected! I’m loving the synchronicity with your 3’s here, too! In accord with the number 3, I have three blog posts that will be coming up. They all seem to be connected to one another.

    My heart laments David Bowie leaving the earth plane, but I am sure he’ll still be making music. We will likely get little hints and signs of it in the coming days.

    Blogging has become such a delicious feast and treasure; I am so grateful that we are able to share this journey. I truly enjoy our astro sharings and all the stuff that ends up on the plate at the table!

    Much Love ❤ ❤ ❤
    *and here's to many more fond years of blogging together!

    I know! They look cool, and they give you a lot more room. I think Ka has one. Maybe I will ask her and if I can figure it out, I’ll tell you how. Have a great day, Linda.

    1. Hello dears ~ I just happened to see this!
      I believe I used the gallery widget to get the moving pictures. A while back I updated to the Lovecraft theme. I see that Linda may have been inspired by the same theme, or synchronously chose the same theme at some point after I changed mine. We both chose owls cards for each other one year (neither of us knew what the other was sending). Pretty cool, huh? Regardless, Mary, it might only be accessible with that theme or certain other themes. Check your options in your widgets. I think it’s under “appearances.” It’s been a while since I did it.
      It took me what seemed like forever until I posted mine. Best wishes,
      Ka

      1. Is the gallery widget user friendly? I chose the same theme as yours after a lengthy perusal of hundreds? of options! I like the expansiveness of it and it works well with my vision. Great visionaries think alike,hehe!

        Thank you Ka for helping Mary and I with this. love ya, Linda

      2. It seemed user-friendly at the time. You know how that stuff is! Depends on what you are working on, too. It’s whether or not Mercury is retrograde and a million other factors, I’m sure. Give it a whirl and tell me what you think. We do seem to think alike a lot, or a lot alike. As we are Aquarius-risers, we can be quite the dissenting types (at least historically, societal-wise) – I know I have with Aquarius on my S. Node and all, so let us continue to be mindful of our unique freedoms of expression our individual spaciousness – and enjoy our stupendous synchronicity! You know my Sun in Leo shines in a Libra house so I love love and loving and matching sometimes, apparently! Like I said, the #amount of fun we’ve been having, and the love and grace is so wonderful. I enjoy how we match and coordinate and ‘vibe.’ So, yes, Love you, too! xxKa

        Yes, thank you! I put the badge on my desk top. I have to either figure out a moving widget for my awards and badges or change themes. I also want my time line badge on there from your challenge this summer, but it won’t let me put up any more. Yeah, I like comments on my site too.
        Peace

    1. Hi Sue,
      Thank you for all your support along the way. Just so you know ( and perhaps I should edit this on the post) that the Bowie video shown here was the first video I chose. It was only after I played it did I notice the 3;33. I think it was a wink from the higher realms telling me ” You got this.”

      Changes is one of my favorite songs ever and it is about the everchanging way of being. Time is one measure, but there are many.

      I come to appreciate you more as time moves on..

      Love, Linda

      1. Bless you Linda.. 🙂 I know how those magical moments unfurl and bring yet another WOW moment into our lives, I had one with the numbers 6.. and have had reoccurring numbers keep jumping up at me of 6’s.. The biggest WOW for me was when I drove into town the other day to have a much needed hair cut.. 🙂 I glanced down at my Mile-meter on the dash-board of my car and it said o60666 🙂 How cool was that.. 🙂 I love it when all these things speak to up with the Mathematics of the Universe 🙂 ❤ So love and appreciate you too my friend 🙂 ❤

  6. Happy Blogiversary, Linda! Thanks for enriching the blogging landscape with your blog. I love your stories about everyday miracles and synchronicities and the connections you make to the pop-culture and paintings. Your sense of visual beauty is a unique contribution. I am glad that we met here and that we fuel each other’s journey.
    Love and Hugs,

    1. Hi Karin,
      Meeting you about a year ago was one of the many miracles that WP helped facilitate. You “get me” in ways that many may not and I am very grateful. The planet is more alive when we come together to share our uniqueness in service to one another. To more fuel for our souls.

      Big hugs with love, Linda
