Garbage time

It’s that time – throw what no longer serves you in the garbage.

By that, I also mean people. No, not literally. Figuratively. Of course. As I reorganize my sacred living space, I also seem to be losing a few people here and there. I don’t think it’s just about living space. I think it’s about everything. As we decide what works and doesn’t, it’s just natural for things to fade away.

It’s also tricky when the mental/emotional side of things is also out there… waiting to be reviewed, experienced, and judged. What makes us available? What defines growth in all ways? When the help you were getting is useless, demeaning, and supposed to be mental health support of some kind? Really?

Who deems us worthy? What do we deem trash? Things to be sorted and labeled ‘trash’. We all are going through the ringer in some way… shouldn’t we be able to keep things labeled, ‘gold’? Like the support we do have in the people we know we can count on.

The ones who find different ways to say, ‘I’m here, and though I can’t give you a thousand-dollar check, I’m still here. I love you and I just want you to know that.

folks, these are the precious jewels in our lives that we treasure. During Christmas time especially, remember, there’s a gift in everyone we love and the things that do serve us. But can you tell the difference?

Be the gold you are given in thousands of ways to others. That’s enough. It will always be enough.

Many blessings folks, Sandi.

Motions and emotions

Northern New Mexico winds

I was drawn to record this amazing chatting of branches and trees. I had no idea what they were saying to each other. I hazarded a few guesses:

We’re free. Look how beautiful my hair is. Look how flexible I am. Look how beautiful and colorful I am. Don’t you just love yellow?

Were they talking to me? To each other? To all connected roots around them? Was it a warning? Change is near. Soon, you’ll see us for who/what we are. We will be naked. Be prepared.

I believe it’s all that and more I’ll never understand. But who needs to know when the beauty is so breathtaking, it’s all you can do but observe and breathe in nature in all its power and glory.

Many blessings folks! Sandi

Reflections (& Acequias)

This vid was taken in northern New Mexico. Community ditches, or ‘acequias’, are used for irrigation on farm land for growing alfalfa, watering livestock, or gardening… the water here is low. It’s time to limit the consumption of water, as it is now fall and not needed. The process can be very complicated, but most certainly a huge star in Spanish heritage. No, you don’t have to be of Spanish/Hispanic descent to water your farms through acequias!

I also was taken by the reflections and fallen leaves in this vid. A strange sadness came over me and I realized, the fall is the bridge to winter. The season that calls for silence and inner bundling. It’s the reflection of the leaves and flowers as they release from their home and to the ground – where they mingle with the earth; a coming home of sorts.

I’m asking myself: where are my leaves landing? Is it home?

INTJs – Aries tarot read

All beautiful things come with time

Looks like time was needed here… we have some space and distance that seems to have smoothed some unruly and difficult feelings/emotions. Possible reconciliation as is so spotlighted through Mercury Retro which ends on 10/18/21. Many blessings, and keep up the good work!

Are you ill, or just waking up (spiritual pains)?

Picking up here, where I left off on Anchor!

Awake? Ill? Nuts? What?

I’m hoping to hash up some convos on the physical symptoms of spiritual awakening. I thank those of you visiting from my Anchor podcast, and joining in on the conversation.

My top symptoms (as I’ve experienced them):

  • Unusual out-of-the blue headaches
  • Chills (like you’re about to get a cold) but you’re fine
  • Inexplicable body aches and pains (some internal, some external)
  • Spacing out at REALLY inconvenient times
  • Taking deep breaths naturally (without being told or encouraged to because your blood pressure is about to hit the roof)
  • Stomach upsets (of all kinds)
  • Bright lights, specks of light – peripheral – not like eye floaters
  • Feet getting really hot or cold, regardless of the season
  • Scalp burning sensation, itching, or simply feeling like someone put a juiced-up battery in your head… no, not dandruff related
  • You feel very sensitive to your surroundings, bright lights, and sudden noises

***These are not to be ticked off as being ok medically. I’m not a doctor, or scientist. Please see your/a physician if any of these are worsening and simply can’t be treated as spiritually-related.***

I know it all seems like a lot to swallow. I’ve been feeling most of these symptoms for about the last year. I do feel as if a massive energetic storm has hit… I forget I’m a human experiencing the ups and downs of catching up with a soul as old as time itself. The above list is just a few of the many physical sensations we all feel when our soul is guiding us.

Share your thoughts folks, I’d love to hear them!

Be well, and I’m wishing you many blessings! Sandi

Blessings of conflict

Yes. There is always a way to resolve conflicts.

No. You can’t resolve certain conflicts.

BS.

Many blessings, Sandi

Mind’s Chaos

Section 2 – Mind’s Chaos

Day 2 of 36 – my attempt at a book reading via Anchor podcast. Listen here!

Writing an autobiographical novella, isn’t easy – but a lot easier than writing a book. It was difficult, yet cathartic. This is section 2 of 36, day two of 36 days of reading each section on Anchor.

For those of you who are thinking about writing a book, regardless of the genre, know this: it won’t write itself. Keep on keeping on!

Many blessings, and thanks in advance for stopping by!

Podcast book reading: my autobiographical novella

Hi Folks!

I’ve been putting this off for a bit… ok, since I published my novella in 2017. The thought of doing an in-person book reading(s)/signing(s) terrified me. I self-published this book. I was the writer, editor, proof-reader, and I designed the jacket. This is my third book. My most important one. I decided to do a book read for the first time, on Anchor.

I’m loving recording my podcasts, and thought, well, why not? If not here, now, then when?

The next 36 days: book reading on O’vehlu podcast!

Join me on my journey! I will be posting (also here on WP) for the next 36 days, reading 36 sections in my novella; in case you find an episode title (section) of the book that might catch your attention.

Thanks in advance for stopping by folks!

I made a mistake

New podcast episode! Thanks for the listen!

Well, we all make mistakes right? When I record my podcast episodes on Anchor, I try to record only once. So, that accomplishes a few things: I get to be as authentic as possible – no script; I am able to feel relaxed, and under no pressure; I have a lot of freedom to say what I want/and/or need to say; and lastly, I hope to goodness I sound ok in the end! So, that being said, I correct myself in the description for my O’vehlu podcast, ‘I made a mistake’ episode. I could’ve redone it. But, I was outside, the crickets yammering away, and the near full blood moon, almost full… in two days. I was under a dark sky, with tons of smattering of stars, and the cat just hanging out, as if he were listening intently to every word, so no, I wasn’t going to re-record!

Here’s the pic of this amazing full moon event, with so many other planetary aspects going on at the same time.

Northern New Mexico skies: full blood moon & lunar eclipse coming soon: May 26, 2021

Apparently, there’s tons going on astrologically, but really, I think A LOT goes on all the time. Have you ever imagined what it would be like to spin around in freezing space, with tons of debris, moons, planets, exploding stars, black holes, dark energy, etc., in chaotic, sporadic, devastating speeds?

I prefer watching the moon, in my very small corner of my New Mexico, and just enjoy what happens in the space of seconds… I’ll leave it here!

Many blessings folks! Sandi

Manifrustration

Podcast – thanks for the listen folks!

The word manifest, has me lighting a match to what it means to get what you want, but might it be harmful in the end?
