Wow…what a night. As is customary here in North Texas, some pretty powerful storms moved through when we were trying to sleep and they kept us up off and on until they moved on. During the worst of it, I grabbed the rose quartz I have next to my bed and just held it tightly repeating over and over to myself, “I choose calm.” It worked. Gradually the storm quieted down and moved on. I have found a very assertive voice presents itself in times like these and usually the message is, “What do you want?!” Not in the, “why are you are bothering me again?!” type thing but more of asking what do I want the outcome to be in the situation. When I can firmly focus on what I want, things are okay. Coincidence, chance or great timing….it could be any of these things but I like to think it’s the power of prayer and intention at work. When you don’t “too many mind” or “conditionalize” prayer and meditation – it works.
Anyhew…..I am feeling better but my allergies are horrific. I am afraid to take any kind of allergy medicine or anything while I’m on Lithium – have to talk to my doctor on that. So, it’s holistic remedies for me – Peppermint and Eucalyptus oils and good ol’ Altoids mints….and of course using the power of self-healing. Kyle had been doing well at work with his cough and as soon as he came home he started in again. There is something in our “Alvarado air” I guess that’s just aggravating both of us. This year is the worst it has ever been for the two of us since we moved here in 2009.
I hope all who were in the path of the storms are o.k. We have dear friends/family in Oklahoma (Links family)that were in the path of this thing too! So much damage with these storms. The Insurance companies can’t be happy campers! If they are in fact trying to “farm the weather” artificially, I wonder how much longer until the insurance companies raise the bs flag? If stuff like this is going on, people should know about it….we all need to be “in” on it. There wouldn’t be so darn many conspiracy’s if there was more truth about things.
On a different note……
Today is a sad day my local Animal shelter. The shelter is full and they are having to euthanize several dogs. A big part of why this is happening is people refuse to spay and neuter their animals. I say a prayer for these unfortunates who didn’t choose to be here, didn’t choose to be abandoned, neglected, abused and are going to die with strangers. I don’t feel like this how we should treat family! Kyle and I do we can to help but it is the owners of the dogs and cats that end up in shelters like ours that need to do their part. Do your homework before you decide to buy or adopt a pet. Something very important to remember about pet ownership – IT IS A LIFELONG COMMITMENT! Dogs, cats, and other domesticated animals are not stuffed animals and or toys that you throw away after your bored with them – a lesson more parents need to be teaching their children I think! Those of us who have spent a life time with animals realize they are not just “animals” but living, thinking, feeling beings who are in many cases far more noble than most human beings. Some of the greatest life lessons I’ve learned I’ve learned in the company of my dogs and cats.
