The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with Nature. —Joseph Campbell
“Let there be light” is the divine prompting to use the creative imagination as a force within your life. This is part of what dragonflies and damselflies teach us.
Life is never quite the way it appears, but it is always filled with light and color. Dragonfly can help you to see through your illusions and thus allow your own light to shine forth. Dragonfly brings the brightness of transformation and the wonder of colorful new vision.

A Dose of Green
I enjoyed a beautiful walk this morning. The squirrels were playing, the birds singing, ducks quacking and the dragonflies were dashing from one plant to another. The sound of the water was so calming and the walk was quiet and amazing…
I am thankful for every moment.
The magic of thoughts starts with tuning into the silence, letting the quiet moments swirl softly around you like a warm comfy blanket. Silence speaks volumes if you choose to hear.

One word Frees us of all the weight and pain of life: That word is love. -Socrates 406 B.C.
Thank you for a New Day and a Different Perspective
Each day is a gift and a life lesson. It may be the gift of joy, the gift of reflection, the gift of time, the gift of thankfulness, awareness, spiritual insights, wisdom, friendship, celebrations, music, the gift of art, etc.
Each experience, each emotion can be viewed as a gift.
Our life lessons are super valuable gifts. They appear as hardships and pain, yet underneath the iceberg are precious, rare gifts. These are normally not viewed as gifts; we often fight against these life experiences and reject the life lessons. No worries, because our life lessons will keep repeating until we understand that the gifts we receive have good intentions.
Some life lessons help us to know it is time to let go and move forward.
Some life lessons we need to research and learn more about. This requires your intuition, your heart and your gut to unwrap the meaning.
Be careful to avoid the overthinking trap.
When you use your intuition and prayer it is easier to learn the life lessons. It may take time to get it.
The life lessons definitely replay until the message is revealed.
This may not make sense because it is a different way to look at our natural choices, coincidences and consequences. It is learning a new perspective.
It may sound like mumbo-jumbo, yet life lessons are precious gifts to honor, respect and learn from every day.
Thankful for Life, Family, Friends, Colorado, Nature, Art, Creativity, Love, Faith, Joy, Laughter, Blessings and for the Journey.

Natural forces within us are the true healers of disease. -Hippocrates
The best place to find a helping hand is at the end of one’s arm. – Mary Burmeister
Prioritize your Energy
Are you giving away your energy?
Your energy is very important, spend it wisely on what matters most to you. Prioritize your energy. Don’t give your energy away to daily distractions, drama, bad news, or people that may be sabotaging or knocking you off balance.
Make a choice to be responsible for your own emotions, your reactions and your energy. Cultivate a healthy mindset. Do not waste your energy on toxic people, identify the source of the energy drain and remove yourself from that situation. If you choose to stay then offer zero emotional reactions.
Try doodling and scribbling your feelings on paper and make them totally unreadable. This is a great way to vent when you are stuck in a temporary situation.
Don’t give anyone permission to devalue or tear you down.
Ask yourself… how am I feeling right now and be fully aware of your energy. If a situation is draining you…disengage, walk away, opt out, or take a break.
Burn those bridges! Focus on your health and don’t give away your power or energy.
Quiet – Alone time
Rest, take a break, give yourself permission to have a moment of peace.
Breathing deeply is a simple way to relax and regain your strength. A deep breath is like a reset button. We tend to breath in a shallow manner when we are stressed or worried.
When do you hold your breath?
