Hello Everyone,

October 2015

I love October, not just because it is my birthday month but because the air changes, the season changes, the time changes.

It is when we must embrace the fact that the time change will have us seeing the dark sooner. A time when the trees begin to let loose the leaves, orange, brown and yellow leaves flying about.

It is the time when the ghouls and horrors are seen in decorations, shows, movies and parties.

It is the time when we say farewell to the summer heat, smile toward the cooler weather and wonder of the winter to come.

Happy October! May there be light within you to shine upon the earlier darker hours. May the ghouls and gremlins that ring the door bell make you smile and partake in trick or treat.

May you embrace the change in season knowing... it will bring us back to Spring soon enough.

I have added a tab - Whisper my words, which is a link to my site where I post stories, poems, AndMore events and the Watcher's Journal. Take a peek and enjoy.

Enjoy!

Inspiration me...Inner Wisdom cards

I am patient and loving with my fearful thoughts. Be patient and loving with every fearful thought. Practice observing your fears as a witness, and you'll see them dissolve. ~Inner Wisdom Cards by Wayne Dyer

Most interesting that I picked this card today.  Last night about a couple of hours after falling asleep, I woke to a feeling of deep dread immediately followed by intense fear.  I did not remember a nightmare, just a feeling of fear.  I was so hot I struggled for air and opened the window.  I sat for a while just taking deep breaths.  Finally, I remembered something I had learned the day before.  In a meditation* class the instructor spoke of feeling each limb throughout the body.  To say to yourself... relax.  To get to that state of mind where you are one with your environment.

The mantra 'relax, relax, relax' soothed me.  I soon found myself laying down again and not thinking of the dread or fear.  I went to sleep having no dreams - no nightmares just a restful sleep.

I found myself patient with fear.  Loving with self.  I saw it dissolve and witnessed it's weakness.

Are you patient and loving with your fearful thoughts?  Does dread and fear control your emotions?

Try telling yourself; to your deepest self; to relax.
