Message on a “Blah” Day

What do you do when you have a case of the “blahs” & you have no idea what is causing you to feel this way. Well, other than the weather. It’s been raining badly here in Houston for about a week. Lots of gray skies, chilly, and very little sun. Usually I am not emotionally reactive to weather patterns, but this one has me within its clutches so I decided to ask for a message to brighten my day.

I swear that I chose these at random. Just look at the similarity of the message on each card. Similar, yet not identical.

a-case-of-the-blahs-public

The Universe presents us with Infinite Possibilities.”

~ and ~

We live in an abundant Universe. There is enough for everyone.”

I pulled these cards randomly as I wondered what type of message could pull me out of the blahs. I would have to say that this is that message!

I woke up feeling immediately overwhelmed as I mentally went over my work schedule for today. Please do not misunderstand me. I am incredibly grateful for the orders that have recently come in for readings, enchantments, and a Soul Portrait, but there are also so many hours in a day and I do not like to keep people waiting. Yet there is only one of me and many (thank the gods) clients. Currently, my services I offer at my site are my family’s main source of income as my husband works to get his new business off the ground. These orders are keeping the bills paid and food on the table so to say I am grateful would be an understatement.

As I read the first message, “The Universe presents us with Infinite Possibilities” it made me think of different ways I could manage my time. After contemplating the message of this card I now have a better idea of how to parcel out my time today so I am no longer feeling overwhelmed.

As I pulled the second card my hand was first pulled toward one end of the fanned out deck, but then I felt a very light push on my hand that guided me toward the opposite end of the fan. When choosing a card from a fanned deck I allow my hand to hover about 2″ above the cards until one or more of my fingers begin to tingle. Usually this happens only with my index finger. Then I choose whichever card below makes that finger tingle the most. That is how I chose the first card, so other than the gentle push, I chose the second card in the same manner.

My reaction when I read the message of the second card was, “well, would you look at that!” “We live in an abundant Universe. There is enough for everyone.”

Two cards that speak of what the Universe has to offer us if we are open to receive, that is, when we have faith and belief that yes, we DO live in an abundant universe, there IS enough for everyone, and the universe is jam-packed with infinite possibilities.

What a cheery and uplifting message on a day when I had been suffering from the blahs and feeling overwhelmed!

You see, I also woke up worried about money. I try hard not to worry, but when your first thought of the morning is, “OMG, I have to pay my sales tax today because it’s due tomorrow!” while hoping you have enough in your meager checking account so your check to the State doesn’t bounce, well, it can create a tiny sense of panic. Thankfully, due to the orders I received yesterday I do have enough to pay my sales tax today; and, I was aware of this, but those first few foggy thoughts of morning are often not very logical. I had forgotten about orders that came in last night that gave me a financial reprieve in my midnight hour (almost literally!).

The second message is a timely reminder that a person cannot focus on what they LACK. If you find yourself thinking “I don’t have enough money to pay my sales tax,” or whatever else you need to pay, rethink that. Such a thought is only placing more emphasis on what you lack and not on what you actually possess. Perhaps you don’t have enough money to pay all your bills, but you can pay some of them. Focus gratitude out into the universe for the bills and things you are able to pay for. Don’t focus on what you can’t afford. Focus on what you possess and what you have been able to accomplish. If we all work to focus on what we have and on what we have managed to do or complete, then express gratitude for that, the universe will work to present us with new opportunities through which additional abundance can flow toward us.

The message of the second card kindly presented me with a timely reminder me of this fact. I have reconsidered my family’s financial situation; and, as a result, I feel secure in the knowledge that yes, as long as I remain open to receive and maintain my faith, the universe WILL provide.

red-maple-blooming-in-mid-jan-2017As I looked out the window immediately after taking this picture I was struck by the fact my red maple is blooming new leaves already. We had a very short and late fall season here in Houston. My two red maples didn’t actually begin to show any fall colors until mid-December. It was short-lived as they lost all their leaves by the first few days of 2017. They have only been fallow for about two weeks, but already they are budding out! It goes to show how unseasonably warm it’s been in Houston this “winter,” which hasn’t really been winter, not even in the Houston sense of the word.

As I sat here looking out my bedroom window at my red maple tree marveling at all the new baby leaves appearing nearly overnight on its branches this tree also reminded me that despite temporary setbacks opportunities will continue to bloom.
