The Jury is Still Out

UPDATE 2-27-16: I was excused from jury duty.

This is a short blog dedicated to a new swirl of psychic activity. Nothing seems to be driving this train, like intention or visualization. This is a teeny tiny occurrence, but meaningful all the same. This Fire Monkey New Moon event may be responsible for some internal rewiring. We shall see…

I do not recall what even triggered this thought. I was sitting on my bed, thinking and musing, per usual. I became aware that it has been years since I was called to serve on a jury. I began to wonder why there has not been a summons in about ten years. I thought it may have to do with leaving City government in 2006. I had the thoughts and then moved on to the next thing.

SIDEBAR: In classic litebeing fashion, I quickly scanned the image, ignoring the details. This summons is for Philadelphia. Huh? It was downloaded online, not my personal summons. The synchrony train continues : choo choo !

What do you think appeared in the mailbox on Friday? A jury summons! All I can say is OMG! Between this event and the pre-cognitive death dream, I sense that my third eye is opening up at a faster clip. It is so interesting that neither of these occurrences were a result of any practice or exercise. I am not interested in jury duty and I was not focused ( at least consciously) on my mother’s friend Ann. Maybe these experiences have been orchestrated simply to get my attention.

Mission accomplished!

 

Lady-justice-jury

I am wondering if going to jury duty may trigger some interesting chain of events. I guess there is one way to find out. This is definitely a Saturn in Sag development. Saturn being government and Sag representing the legal system. The location of the court would bring me back to City Hall, not far from where I worked for close to 20 years. Ambivalence prevails. This pending full moon closely aspects my MC/IC axis, not to mention my Pluto. Since the full moon occurs tomorrow, it is likely that a preference will surface.  Like Scarlett O ‘Hara famously once said, ” I’ll think about it tomorrow.”

Have you noticed a recent uptick in psychic ability?

How about a surge in dream recall or telepathy?

Do tell!

A True Story

longwood142015Yesterday I was on the phone with my mother. We were discussing the mail. I was telling her that most of my mail has been comprised lately of bills. She agreed with me. I then replied ” It would be nice if instead of receiving requests to take my money, I would receive something telling me that I would be given money.” She responded “That would probably only happen if you won the lottery.”  I replied  ” Yeah, you are right.”

longwood12015While we were chatting, I went to the my mailbox and took my phone with me. As I opened up the mailbox, I looked inside and retrieved two envelopes. One was from a credit card provider and the other from my health insurance company. The health insurance company has been consistently sending me copies of claims since my discharge from the hospital. I told my mom “I got 2 more bills!” I went back inside and went to the table. I opened up the envelopes: One contained a bill. The other envelope had a fat check in it with my name on it. It was written out to me. “I gotta go now. Goodbye.”

longwood72015Let me clarify that the check was from the insurance company for me to use to pay a medical provider. It was very odd and I called them to verify that it was not a mistake. They assured me that it was not a mistake and they directed me to use the check to pay for part of the service rendered. But what was wild was the timing. I cannot remember receiving a check from my health insurer in decades, not since  I had a major medical plan. It was so long ago I barely remember it, at least twenty years ago. So imagine my surprise with the timing of my phone call and receiving the check! Was it an example of psychic ability or something more? Could it be that I am beginning to turn events around? I am not depositing the check yet. I am holding onto it as a symbol of positive manifestation.

Now if it was from the State Lottery…….

Cookies and Collisions – A Holiday Tale

I am republishing this old post today.  After reviewing it yesterday I noticed an essential theme that I am carrying into 2015. Please read along and let me know which theme I am carrying forth! Have fun finding the thread.

1-16-15 Update: The answer is provided in the comments section. Did you guess correctly??

 

I have not written a Collisions story lately so I am very happy Spirit graced me with one that complements this Season of Miracles. Frankly I have had a rough few months and the stress has affected my outlook. I have been feeling weary with a decreased energy level. Saturn transiting all my Scorpio planets in the 9th house (beliefs and expansion) has taken its toll. However, Jupiter just retrograded back on my Mars, giving me the ” bump” I need to weather these challenging times.

Bredenbecks1

This past December 13th, Friday 12-13-13, began like any other. It started off rather mundanely , but I am happy to report that I did not succumb to the negative hype of Friday the 13th. Thank you Sindy and others for enlightening me about the majesty of the number 13. I spent some time online before making a run to get some holiday cookies. I decided that day (on impulse) to indulge in some sugar at Bredenbecks. I love this bakery that has gorgeous gingerbread houses. scrumptious pies, and delightful sugar cookies! Prior to my outing, I heard from my pal Heidi. She contacted me to let me know she included me in her group  Reiki healing! I was truly grateful that my friend decided to include me in this way. I am so blessed to have such wonderful friends!

So I traipse off on this cold and snowy day to get some cookies and perhaps a slice of chocolate cheesecake. As I drive up the hill, I consider the icy conditions and the cobblestone street. I quickly and quite unceremoniously wish to find a spot with some time left on the meter.  I prefer to avoid going through the snow and ice and up the cobblestones just to get to the meter. This was just a fleeting wish; I was not really expecting anything. Then I find a spot near the bakery. It is by an expired meter but I am cool with that. Before I can begin to parallel park, a woman motions me towards her. I pull over to find out what she wants. ” I have 35 minutes left on my meter so come with me!”  I am thinking, ” Wow, can she read my mind?” So I drive up to her spot. Not only does she offer me her spot, she begins to direct traffic and guide me into the vacant parking space. I kid you not!

Now here is the really interesting part of this tale: I have this flash about the Universe while all this is going on. While I am attempting to parallel park ( not my strong suit I’m afraid!) I being to imagine a world in which everything conspires in your favor. Where all possible and unimaginable resources operate seamlessly and automatically.  All you  have to do is align yourself and cooperate with the flow!” I promised myself I would remember this , because I sensed it was important.

After I got out of the car, I asked this angel for her name and I shook her hand. I wanted to make sure she was real.  She told me her name was Cynthia. She just radiated kindness and love. I shook her hand and thanked her. She then told me that I should get the snow off the roof of my car because it was dangerous and that I might get a ticket. I saw her again after I left the bakery. I waved at her and she waved back . She was helping a woman in a wheelchair. I wondered if she knew the woman or was just extending more generosity to others.  I thought about Heidi’s healing and my impulsive decision to get cookies. I wondered what universal laws were in operation. I also hoped I could keep this epiphany alive within me.

A HOLIDAY BONUS TALE ~ 

I am not typically on board with this recent talk of immediate manifestation of abundance. Apart from finding a parking spot in  a crowded lot a la Parking God, I have not been much of a manifest-er. I like the idea of it. I have created a vision board and tried some other practices designed to counteract poverty consciousness and other self-defeating beliefs. Maybe its my current state of weariness or plain old-fashioned cynicism. I have not had much experience with this particular phenomenon so I have no ” hard evidence.” Well this past Friday the 20th ( a week after my Divine collision) I had a medical appointment. The medical practice moved to a larger office space. It was decorated with stunning artwork that was simply breathtaking. On the counter were several small, sparkly, purple Poinsettia plants. I had not seen these before and I was in love… I asked the receptionist about them and she said that they were painted. She inferred they were painted for the medical practice. I told her ” I want to get one!” I did not really hold the thought. In fact, I quickly forgot about it. 

Fast forward one day ahead to Saturday. I go to the supermarket for a few items and hope to purchase a small Poinsettia as well. The pickings were slim and I told myself to accept what is. I was a bit disappointed, but would not buy an unhealthy plant just to appease my desire to uphold my yearly tradition. On the way home I decide to go to one more store. I recalled that they have had a large selection of plants and flowers in the past. I take a quick survey of their holiday plants section.  I notice they are also practically sold out. I am about to leave the store empty-handed when I see a row of small purple Poinsettia. They were identical to those I saw at the medical office! There were only a few left but I found one that was in good condition. I was almost in shock because I believed that the ones I saw were specially made for my doctor’s practice. Did I misunderstand the receptionist? Did it really matter? Just like with the meter, I briefly held a thought without expectation and look what happens….

get-attachment (9)

Am I participating in this mass Awakening/Ascension that is being discussed online? Is the key to success what Buddhists call non-attachment? In both of these situations I desired the unexpired meter and the unusual purple plant.  Yet I was not feeling dependent on, or even particularly invested in the outcome. I am utterly amazed and quite baffled by the turn of events. Let me know what you think happened here.  I could really benefit from your experiences with intention.

Please listen now for Divine enjoyment:    The voice of an Angel

I got goosebumps the first time I heard this on the radio.

Pink Sky Desires

10385404_699509116784213_2307976437909551595_n

I had a totally different post in mind for today, but it just ain’t ready and I am not going to force it. I am led to write today since the transits mimic my own: Sun in Scorpio / Moon in Gemini.

It is my time and the sun is about to set, my favorite time of day. The sky is a flush with pink streaks gliding upon a greyish blue backdrop. So here we go:

My heart has been opening more to the notion that life can be fun. No more small Saturn living for me, it is all about my solar return MH exactly conjunct my natal Jupiter! Double wow since Jupiter rules my natal MH. For the non astrologers, I am choosing to focus only on the exuberant, loving, benevolent, generous energies. They are extraordinary and so are we. Living is miraculous and this truth is often overlooked or minimized. My desire to travel has been on hold long enough. I wrote a poem in  1897 ,  no I meant 1987 ,  about Peru and Morocco. I have been imagining visiting  these places for even longer than that. My soul requires adventure and exotic locales.  I spent my birthday this year near Delaware at Longwood Gardens ( post in pre-production)  and making that short pilgrimage moved my Solar Return MH just  close enough to kiss natal Jupiter. I did not plan for that to happen, but my desire to travel on my birthday created a new energetic reality.

So what else is on the agenda?

 

How Good Can It Get?

 

I am in Mexico City and the surrounding regions ~ the land of the Aztecs, Frida Kahlo , and Diego Rivera. Ancient ruins and MesoAmerica, woohoo!

I am awestruck in  Machu Picchu, Peru. ( no words)

I am dancing in Morocco, celebrating the wonders of Marrakech.

I am embracing Brazil, especially Rio and Sao Paulo.

I am ” back home” in India, gazing upon the Taj Mahal once again, and consuming more Indian food than deemed possible.

I am hanging out with my circle in Bali.

I am drinking so much coffee in Seattle and meandering about the glorious Pacific Northwest. Tacoma, Portland ( Portal – land), check!

I am grooving in Sedona with all sorts of litebeings.

I am rocking the Grand Canyon.

The South has been calling my name and the livin’ is easy in Atlanta, Asheville, Savannah, San Antonio, Houston, Charleston, and New Orleans. I am also back in FLA, digging all things Disney , South Beach, and savoring Key Lime pie ~ where else but Key West!

I am thrilled to be in Chicago, a city that has eluded me for too long.

I am castle and cathedral hopping throughout all of Europe, including France, Spain, Belgium, Austria, Great Britain, Ireland, Wales, and Scotland, and all of Scandinavia. Barcelona, Paris, London, Copenhagen, Brussels, I am so there!

I am chasing windmills in Amsterdam.

I am revisiting California, Hawaii, Jamaica, Italy, Switzerland, and Canada because I have so much more to explore and people to see!

I am digging the vibes on Malaysia.

I am savoring sushi in Japan.

I am prayerful in the temples throughout Asia and the Middle East.

I am checking out my Eastern European ancestral roots in Germany, Belarus, Poland, the Ukraine, Russia, and wherever else I am from.

I am communing with nature on safari in Kenya and Tanzania.

I am grooving in Pittsburgh because I can! So cool to traverse the entire state of Pennsylvania.

I am writing for TMA so I can hang out with all my astrology writer friends in print and celebrate the synastry of TMA’s chart and mine!

I am finally chatting with Oprah outside of Dreamtime. She really loves my book on mystical experiences and is interviewing me about it on Super Soul Sunday.

I am marveling with delight at Stonehenge, the great Pyramids and Niagara Falls! ( not necessarily in that order.)

I am immersed in knowledge at the Edgar Cayce Foundation in Virginia Beach.

I am meeting all of my blogger friends near and far in one big global party.

and, I totally rocked my job interview tomorrow.

And that’s just for starters!
