Sense-sational Blogging Challenge

Thanks to all for making this marvelous Blogging Challenge such a success. I always enjoy meeting new folks and cementing bonds with “old-timers” through this endeavor. We are expanding into December for those who are still interested in participating. My post is still in draft form so we shall see if we can extend the party a bit longer.

love to all, litebeing

UPDATE: The challenge is over and I am thrilled with the assortment of material assembled during the month of November. Many thanks to the contributers, supporters, and most of all, the readers! I plan to offer my challenge post in the near future, so stay tuned!  If you have not had a chance to read the submissions, the links are located here.

I wish everyone a fantabulous Supermoon Full Moon in Gemini, compounded by the Neptune square and Mercury conjunct Saturn stationing retrograde. So what does that all mean? My quick take is to beware of deception, huge promises, and missteps, value yourself through work and inherent resilience, and be the miracle you want to see in the world through all means of self-expression.

So how are you enjoying the challenge so far? In case you are not caught up on your reading, check out the schedule on the pinned…

Update: Tomorrow November 7th kicks off our challenge with the uber -talented, sweet, and incredibly creative Shree !

Keep checking here ( post will be pinned) for updates on the schedule and all things Sense-sational!

Hello Litebeings, I have concocted a simple yet intriguing blogging challenge for the month of November. In fact, it is simply sense-sational!

Theme:

Since we all have decided to incarnate on planet Earth, one of the perks we get to enjoy is the use of our senses. The physical body and material plane allow us to experience sight, sound, taste, smell and touch. I am not certain if or how they operate on other dimensions, but let’s just shelve that question for now. It is quite phenomenal that we get to live in form and yet remain spiritually attuned ( more and more all the time!). I am theorizing that by focusing on the gifts of living an awakened existence while housed in form, we can become even more integrated and less scattered. Perhaps we can also have some fun at the same time.

Plus you also get this glorious badge to display on your site, courtesy of Sue!

Rules: 

1- Answer the following questions:

                   Which senses bring you joy and delight? 

                   How do they help you live a meaningful life?

 2- Choose a date in November and let me know in the comments section.                

3- Link to this post and mention  ” Sense-sational Challenge ” in your post.  Also link to the blogger whose entrie follows yours at the end of your post.

So that about covers it. If you want to showcase your art, poetry, music, culinary recipes, aromatherapy, bodywork, go for it. There are no limits to your creativity!

I will keep a schedule for everyone and serve as official cheerleader.  I am also hoping those awesome folks ( Rara, Shree, Ka, and company) at NanoPoblano will get inspired and use this challenge for one of their November blogs.

Sensational Blogging Challenge

Isn’t it funny how ideas for blogging challenges come to me around the same time each year? It boggles the mind! Just a quick post to let everyone know that I have a blogging challenge for the month of November. I cannot tell you the theme yet, but I promise it will be sensational!

I plan to coordinate with those doing daily blogs for the month of November so they can use the challenge as one of their entries. So if you are involved with this project, feel free to spread the word to your fellow bloggers.

That’s all folks! See ya soon…..

PS: Can someone volunteer to create a challenge badge for me? Contact me if you are interested.

Share Your World ~ Spring in February Edition

Howdy Litebeings,

As the sun visits my first house and we approach the first of 2 eclipses on Friday, I long to take a break from the intensity within ( and without). So I took off from work today and am embracing the 65 degree weather. See why I like February so much?

I am also embracing some levity by participating in Cee’s Share Your World challenge. Please visit her site to learn more.

Let’s get started:

Regarding your fridge, is it organized or a mess inside?

It is organized for the most part. I do not buy a lot of food at one time, but I like to keep the freezer stocked.  I am rather fussy about fresh food, so when in doubt I throw it out!

wikipedia.org public domain

Do you prefer your food separated or mixed together?

As a child I was very particular and enjoyed eating one type of food at a time. I have evolved and now really enjoy mixing flavors and textures together.

Do you prefer reading coffee table books (picture), biographies, fiction, non-fiction, educational?

wikipedia.org pub domain

Books are my thing and I love to be surrounded by them. I have a few coffee table books displayed on the coffee table, but usually forget to read them. I prefer non-fiction, biographies, astrology and spiritual books. I get excited when visiting a library or bookstore. I also enjoy reviewing books and have just received a book that I will share with you once it is completed.

Close your eyes. Listen to your body. What part of your body is seeking attention? What is it telling you?  

Psychologically I feel rather good. I got plenty of sleep and spent some time outside. But my body aches. I feel it mostly in my head, jaw, and lower right abdomen. My left ear is also ringing off the hook, sending piercing tones every so often. My body is telling me to treat it with love and respect.

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

I am pleased that I finished an astrology report last week and spent time with my spiritual director. We discussed an amazing dream I had which most likely will become a blog. Stay tuned.  I now look forward to getting to the weekend and perhaps seeing a film. I am also hoping to watch more episodes of  the first season of  The Magicians on Netflix. I will definitely recommend it if the rest of the series is anything like the pilot.

Magnificence in Motion ~ I AM THAT I AM

Hello everyone, this is my contribution to Litebeing’s Magnificent Challenge. I waited until today to complete my post because I needed some time to put it all together. I am thrilled with the response we have gotten. After posting a reminder yesterday, two more bloggers added their entries to the mix. Thanks Dayna and Michael for sharing your reflections on what makes you “you“. There is still some time left to enter the challenge. Why not take a few minutes and conjure up  some of your magnificent essence now? There is also a shot at a free reading and this nifty badge to display on your site!

magnificent-challenge-badge

First, a little bit about the process. I don’t think I ever intended to create blogging challenges. I would receive an idea that sparked my enthusiasm and soon after, I would receive another notion that it would make an excellent challenge. What I have discovered is that with the exception of my initial challenge, I really struggled to prepare my own post. Maybe this is because I prefer to write in a stream of consciousness style, or because the concepts are more difficult to put into written form? I don’t know. However, I welcome the chance to be challenged, to look deeper, and take my initial inspiration as a nudge to explore my inner landscape in a different way.

So I present Magnificence in Motion ~ IAM THAT IAM:

As someone with natal Neptune conjunct Sun and Neptune square my Ascendant, I often see myself with either rose-colored glasses or not at all, and others may also project their fantasies or confusion onto me. I still agree with what I wrote on my about page, that I am fascinated with and identify with a kaleidoscope ~ obeserver of beautiful forms. This attraction to the reflection of light or “lite” is an enduring theme for how I am unique. It is more apparent in the visual art, photography, poetry, film, books, and music that I showcase here at litebeing chronicles. Composing the about page was an arduous task because like Dayna, I have struggled with identity most of my life.

There lies the rub: the struggle was necessary until it wasn’t…..

A powerful dream excerpt from April 17 2016 provides more of the picture:

I’m with a former love but I am my present age. We are living together in a lovely home with a big modern kitchen. We are standing in the kitchen. The kitchen is modern, yet warm. In the center of the room is a wooden island. Sitting on top of the island is a serving of a raw steak. It resembles premium sushi grade tuna, thick, gleaming, pristine. I plan to season it simply with salt and pepper. I consider whether to marinate the steak, but decide it is not necessary. I then plan to grill it or bake it in the oven. I am delighted with this new setup, new way of living. I tell myself ” This is my second life, a better life, a new beginning.”

Brief analysis: I had journaled upon awakening that I felt proud of my accomplishments and was very excited about the future. These accomplishments include committing to a healthier wellness-centric lifestyle. This sense of a re-incarnation has stuck with me since then and has not wavered. It seems to be signaling a turning point. The house and kitchen are part of me : modern yet comfortable and warm; creative, sustaining, practical yet engaging.  The steak is what is ” at stake” and could also be my heart, pure and simple. No more marinating needed, it is time to just be…

So how does my magnificence shine?

I can dive into colors naturally

My wit is effortless and seemingly automatic

I totally relish helping others grow and learn, marvelling at how most of my “help” is my intuition in free – flow.

I am most magnificent in the absence of :

trying

striving

analyzing

planning

comparing

strategizing

re-framing

judging

I now realize that all I need to know is provided in the given moment and that I already have left the planet better than how I found it, by simply BEING. What a relief to discover that IAM on-point simply by breathing and allowing Source to guide me.  This is how the creative spark manifests, as unique and special in an ocean of unity and love.

Maybe an illustration would help clarify what my words cannot.

While contemplating this post, an image came to me of what is known as scratch art. I did not have the name for it, just a memory of creating this way as a child. It is a great memory. Up until recently I had completely forgotten about it. But the memory surfaced at the right time.

Easy directions:

Take a blank page and cover it with bright vibrant hues, leaving nothing blank.

Cover it entirely with black paint or crayon:

photo1300

Then apply a pin or ballpoint pen and draw a picture by scratching the surface to reveal some of the colors obscured by the black.

photo1302

See how we radiate under the layers of darkness of living on the material plane?

Visit this page to learn more about this technique.

I like the scratch art metaphor to describe my magnificence because I see radiance as mutable and unlimited. We can create over and over again and uncover more aspects of self. There are no limits. This is the beauty of consciousness.

Thanks to Barbara for inspiring me and thanks to all of you who support the unfolding of my light by simply being you.

Wishing you an exuberant Sagittarius New Moon!

 

Welcome to all new readers and followers! I am happy to be back tonight to share some joy and create some opportunities for inspiration and rewards. It has been quite awhile since I have offered an astrology promotion and now seems like a wonderful time to do so. With a new moon in Libra, the Autumnal Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere ( and Vernal/ Spring Equinox in the Southern Hemisphere) the direct movements of both Mercury and Pluto, and the upcoming Jewish New year, ( not to mention Jupiter in Libra, Mars in Capricorn and Venus in Scorpio) this is truly a time for new beginnings. So how can we make the most of this window into infinity?

September has historically been a favorite time for me. I can still visualize my shiny new brown leather school  shoes, the crunchy leaves beneath my feet, and a crisp breeze in the air. How about you?

Photo950

 

Before September morphs into October, let me invite you to be playful and spontaneous. When Barbara surprised me with her amazing review of her astrology consultation , I was blown away by the unfolding of her story and my facilitation of a spiritual opening. I felt truly blessed to be gifted with the ability to help people transform their lives.  Then I got an idea that also blew me away…..

What if we all began to view ourselves through the lens of magnificence?

So here is my challenge:

During the months of October and November, compose a post about your ” you- ness”, celebrating your unique essence and energy. Embrace your inner goddess or god ( 0r both)! Very appropriate for the Venus – ruled lunation that’s all about love and grace, don’t you think?

Link your entry to this post and mention Litebeing’s Magnificent Challenge, and you are all set.

I will select one blogger and gift them a free astrology consultation of their choice!

 

If you have any questions, leave me a comment or email me here

Put on your shiny new shoes and get ready to party with your fine self 🙂

Let’s Dance!

love always, litebeing

Spread Magnificence Beyond Time And Space

Hope I got your attention with the catchy title:

Please, do me a big favor and share this post via WordPress and other social media. I would like as many people as possible to participate in this challenge and share their magnificence before the world. We can all use more positivity and light especially now.

Thanks for listening and helping me get my message across to those who need to hear it. Also a big thanks to Sindy for the beautiful badge.
