“The clump of maples on the hill,
And this one near the door,
Seem redder, quite a lot, this year
Than last, or year before;
I wonder if it’s jest because
I Love the Old State more!”
David L. Cady, October in Vermont

Signs of Deceased Visiting
According to my beliefs, a loved one who has just passed away will be quite anxious to let us know that they’re okay and aware of what’s happening in our lives. If we aren’t able to feel them around us, they’ll often give us a “sign” that we can’t ignore.

LET GO OF THE PAST
“Your journey has molded you for your greater good, and it was exactly what it needed to be. Don’t think that you’ve lost time. There is no short-cutting to life. It took each and every situation you have encountered to bring you to the now. And now is right on time.”
— Asha Tyson
No regrets. As we become more aware, we begin to realize that there’s a purpose to everything that happens. This builds our trust, and supports us in being willing to be more open and daring to really experience life as it unfolds.
If we pay attention to what’s happening in each moment, we will discover that life continually brings us opportunities to heal our past wounds. When a painful memory surfaces, we can take the time to feel it fully, give compassion to ourselves and any others and allow the energy to release. As we deal with the past in this way IN THE PRESENT, we free ourselves to more fully connect with life.
“The next message you need is right where you are.”
— Ram Dass
A Note from the Universe
Actually, it’s not as if your angels can just drop everything they’re doing, and come running whenever you call for assistance, guidance, and love.
You pretty much are everything they’re doing.

“The secret of solitude is that there is no solitude.”
-Joseph Cook, Conscience (1880)
So the secret is out! When we understand that we can never be “alone” because God is always with us, then we will never be lonely. We will cherish our solitude, and consider it time alone with God.

Daily Tarot: The Pope
It’s important to stick with the plan already in place and be loyal to those who are already committed to you. You’re not so much part of a team as you are the leader of a group of people who will do what you ask of them if you only treat them properly and look after their needs, especially the tiny personal ones.
