Shake It Out, Wash and Flip

Shake It Out, Wash and Flip

My grandmothers were avid spring cleaners. Elsie and Betty knew how to shake it out, wash and flip. An annual event that you did not go without.  Windows and walls were washed.  Furniture was moved and all was vacuumed behind and under. Rugs were hauled out to the clothes line and beaten within an inch of their life. A good time for releasing any pent up hostilities held in over the winter months.  These ladies even had winter and summer curtains. Betty had a  satiny dusty rose living room set that transformed into lime linen slipcovers. Very fashionable. Elsie, a market gardener,  who’s farmhouse undertook the huge task of the dismantling of the storm windows and doors in exchange for summer screens. Mattresses were flipped, dusting and more dusting, cobwebs vanished. Lemons and vinegar filled the air. Mr. Clean and Pine-Sol fumes — those were the days. Then for some reason younger generations got too busy, running from one thing in their calendars to the next. The seasons and what they were suited for became a blur.  After all the Swiffer was invented, just a quick ‘swiff’ and all was considered — good enough.  History refers to the Iranian Nowruz, the Persian New Year that falls on the first day of Spring to be the origin of spring cleaning. A “shaking of the house” took place. Another source is the Jewish Passover where a cleansing of the house occurred in preparation of the occasion. Likewise the Catholics clean the church alter on the Thursday before Good Friday.  During the 19th century coal furnaces created a layer of soot on...

Wake Up! To the Energy of “20” March 20, 2020 ANNND It’s Spring!

March 20, 2020 The Energy of the “20” This is an energy that indicates that at some point there will be a powerful awakening. It brings the awareness of new purpose, new plans, new ambitions.

Prayers for Healing

Prayers for Healing

An interfaith group called, “Prayers for Healing” is holding a prayer session in the hospital lobby of New Amsterdam. Season 2 Episode 12 of the New Amsterdam TV series.   Unexplained miracles start to take place. But they are taking up space and they make those who don’t understand the power of prayer uncomfortable. To reach some sense of security from this phenomena that science cannot wrap their head around, they are asked to leave.  They do. And the power of their prayers goes with them.  The energy of the hospital shifts, the miracles stop and some of what had been going forward slides into decline. The time that is upon us now, is where the health and well being of the world could use the power of prayer. As we are a planet of free will and choice, the power of the direction we take is in us.  We can invest in fear or we can fuel ourselves and the world with what we truly wish to attract and create for the good of all.  The choice to pray is as old as Life itself. When we join together, the power exponentially multiples. Praying for healing is one step. The why is important. Why is the healing needed? The virus that has descended upon our planet may give the appearance in the physical to be pushing us a part from one another, when the truth is, it has brought us together. Everyone is being effected. No one is escaping the impact. We are all connected. Here is our choice. The choice of how we are connected. In fear, in...
What Do You Empower?

What Do You Empower?

A new year, first month, new week. This is the time we ask ourselves, what do I want to attract? We think, we visualize, we make lists, stick photos on our fridge. And then when nothing comes or something comes and then it goes; we wonder why. Am I underserving, am I doing something wrong or maybe I’m just unlucky or this stuff doesn’t work. It’s all bullshit and life sucks!!! Let’s just say, rather than any of that, let’s take a pause and ask ourselves, What do I empower? What do I give my energy to, what do I invest in, what do I fuel? Trump is an easy one. Everyday he’s in the news. We click into his twitter feed, we talk about him, mock him, criticize him, give opinion to him. We empower him, we fuel him with so much energy. The energy we invest in him is extreme. We have to come to terms and come clean that we get something from it. If only to feel that we are of superior intelligence to his buffoonism. We keep him large. Closer to home: Your work; you bitch daily and go in circles with the same subject of complaint about co-workers, management, customers. Your kids; What they did or didn’t do. And then as they get older and apparently are now the adults; what you did or didn’t do. Your partner; how they never want to do anything, dealing with ‘their’ families disfunction. Friends; disappointing you, judging you, overstepping boundaries, gossiping about you, and in return, you them. Yourself; everything I do is wrong, I’ll never...
The Energy of 2020

The Energy of 2020

The energy of 2020 is based on the science of Numerology. First, the math; The Universal Energy of 2020 is a “4” The equation is 2+0+2+0 = 4 2019 was the Universal Energy of “3” Some will say a new decade is upon us while others disagree and support the new decade beginning in 2021. Regardless, a new year has begun and with it a new energy. The “4” energy is all about work, getting things done and seeing to things that need attention. The “4” is a building energy and therefore it is very much about the process. Starting at the beginning and moving through each step till completion.  A strong foundation is needed to weather all that Life presents. Life at times hits hard and cracks will appear. When they do, it’s important that they are attended to and repaired well, not just glossed over, pushed aside or hidden. We all know attempting to turn a blind eye, thinking no one will notice, that it will all just be okay is foolish. The opportunity to ignore is brief. The crack grows and before you know it, becomes an abyss. This is an energy that asks you to be organized, stay on track, be on time. Putting things off, will only result is a mess occurring where things run amuck, projects come in late, miscommunication occurs you show up ‘a day late and a dollar short.’ Opportunities are missed. 2019 the Energy of “3” a social, creative energy that requires freedom and is very much about expression and standing up for ones beliefs, it seeks the truth.  We...
