The Optimist Creed
as we are focusing & intending for the new for all that is wonderfull this "Creed" spoke to me ~~
The Optimist Creed
“Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet. To make all your friends feel like there is something in them. To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true. To think only of the best, to work only for the best, and expect only the best. To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own. To forget the mistakes of the past and press on the greater achievements of the future. To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living person you meet a smile. To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others. To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, and too strong for fear, and to be happy to permit the presence of trouble.”

Sharing an ancient blessing
letting go & releasing is often a daily requirement..
we are kinda like onions that way!
lots of layers to our being.. the goal to be a Unified Being.
the spiraling up of our growth & remembering, coming to
wholeness... when i saw these words, they spoke so
loud & clearly to my heart & soul...
i felt a shift & clearing release when i spoke them out loud.
I spoke them again yesterday, & gained strength.
I have made a decision to speak & declare them often thru 2019!!
“I release my parents from the feeling that they have already failed me.
I release my children from the need to bring pride to me; that they may write their own ways according to their hearts, that whisper all the time in their ears.
I release my partner from the obligation to complete myself. I do not lack anything, I learn with all beings all the time.
I thank my grandparents & forefathers & ancestors who have gathered so that I can breathe life today. I release them from past failures & unfulfilled desires, aware that they have done their best to resolve their situations within the consciousness they had at that moment. I honor you, I love you & I fully recognize you as innocent.
I am transparent before your eyes, so they know that I do not hide or owe anything other than being true to myself & to my very existence, that walking with the wisdom of the heart, I am aware that I fulfill my life project, free from invisible & visible family loyalties that might disturb my Peace & Happiness, which are my only responsibilities.
I renounce the role of savior, of being one who unites or fulfills the expectations of others.
Learning through, & ONLY through, LOVE, I bless my essence, my way of expressing, even though somebody may not understand me.
I understand myself, because I alone have lived & experienced my history; because I know myself, I know who I am, what I feel, what I do & why I do it.
I respect & approve myself.
I honor the Divinity in me & also in you.
We are free."
(This ancient blessing was created in the Nahuatl language, spoken in Mexico. It deals with forgiveness, affection, detachment & liberation).

Bright & Beautifull Solstice Blessings
all the holy days.... yours, mine, theirs, ours...
many years ago,(in the 70's) i started wishing my friends happy holidays,
because they were of different faiths,
& i felt by doing so, it was a way of acknowledging their personal holy days,
since there are so many during this time of year...
now it seems to have become a "bad" thing to wish folks happy holidays...
the winter season is full of so many holy days...
the shifting circle goes round & round...
in the northern hemisphere we have turned to the winter solstice...
a time of celebrating the return of the sun,
which brings life to our planet & nature as well as humanity...
the return is celebrated by fires & candles... & being joyful!!
merry making... dancing feet & singing hearts & voices...
the promise of hope for all our tomorrows...
somewhere along the way, the ideas of differences being right or wrong, or good or bad have become a way of life, & so prominent in some folks very way of being they feel the need to push their ideas on to others.... which is so sad...
our differences make us unique.. & special,
each in our very own way...
shared or common practices, traditions, rituals...
are not about rights & wrongs....
they are just that;shared ideas...
& main theme this time of year is about celebrating & joy...
being with friends,family & those we love....
& how we choose to do this, what we choose to call this
is very personal....
all our days are meant to be holy...
all our days offer us an opportunity to celebrate life...
moving beyond the ideas of right & wrongs, mine or theirs...
moving beyond what is shoved down folks throats by
coming back to the heart...
coming back to a heart open to love
coming back to a peaceful heart...
coming back to extending that to ALL those around us..
coming back to a slower pace of the winter season...
thoughtful reflections, & the creating of hopes for tomorrows....
the warmth of hearth & home
the circle of family whether the bond is blood or friendship...
this is my practice, this makes my holy days... & my days holy!
so to you & yours... how ever you are celebrating the
winter season & ALL it's MANY holy days......
may you be blessed beyond your wildest imaginings...
may you know goodness & love...
may your life flow with joy ease & grace....
holy day hugs.... earthdeva/molly
where is you focus?
while the "ducks" feathers are all a ruffle
& the media plays it all into a frenzy
& the 'players' take their stance
bottom line each is entitled to their own opinions
stop,& Please be aware....
avoid the BIG hook
really where is your focus????
what are we creating as a collective????
i am sure there are many other events taking place...
be informed, check for yourself
mostly be aware of your focus, vibration, & intentions~~
we are each responsible for the energy we bring to this world

thoughts for today
we quickly approach Winter Solstice~~~
every year we enter this time of greatest darkness, actually tis kinda forced on us with the shifting of the seasons, as the days grow shorter, & the night lengthens.....& yet this is a blessing a time to tuck in, slow down, re-evaluate our self, our path, our lives....
here in the PNW & the Northern hemisphere,
we have an opportunity to go into our own inner darkness & search for the Light of the new life we truly desire to birth in the coming New Year.
& really how cool is it.... the new moon falls a couple days before Solstice on the18th !!! talk about perfect timing for planting all those new seeds & inspiration for creating NEW!! the new of our choosing!!! & we're the collective to create the new together wow!! mighty powerfull!!!
At Winter Solstice/ Yule/Christmas, we celebrate the rebirth of the Christed Light--a promise of Light returning & Life reviving ~ re~Newal !!!
We energetically. symbolically & emotionally participate in this yearly cosmic event (even if we may no t realize it), so consciously choose to take this journey of discovery & bring your gifts to your own divine inner Child of Light.

i've been experiencing some heavy emotional energies this morning...

~in the midst of the darkness there is light...
in the midst of activity & celebration...
make time to rest & be still
& in the midst of all that is,
there is LOVE!
always there is love!
choose to be the beacon of loving light ~
brightest blessings to you & yours through
the various celebrations of the change of the seasons...
dancing with the stars!
just some thoughts on the path of life....
each day i do what it is i do...
i make my choices based on being a person of love & integrity
each day i do the best i am able
some days i have more to offer then others
i do what it is i do,
not for how another may react,
i do what i do cause it is who i am....
cause i follow my heart & soul
& yet there are times
that often i find myself surprised by what others do....
it seems so out of sync, out of touch, so unreal,
& i get this feeling of disappointment & sadness
& yes sometime anger
so i feel it , am present with it & then i clear
& so i clear & clear!
& sometimes i just really have a challenge "getting/understanding" someone else stuff.
i know in a while i will be ok....
just feeling a bit overwhelmed with nauseousness....
which is a good reminder in it's self to not allow it to affect me
tis no mine....
& i let the rest of it go....
no doubt about it....
we are in the midst of change
do you see/hear/sense/ feel it upon us
or are you one caught in tangled trappings of distractions
eyes & ears pre occupied by the entertainment frenzy that drones ever on
what is important
what is it that matters
what will awaken your heart & soul
holding a space of loves bright light....
feel free to join me
brightest blessings, warmest loving hugs, earthdeva/molly
footnotes on the path of life
each of us is a Seed that has been planted into Matter by Spirit/creator source...
as we journey our path of life,
through all our experiences,
through all our relationships,
yes & even through our own shadow stuff,
through our own creations, ideas,
We gather the elements of our Divine Blueprint
& we grow into a Tree of Life~~
may you grow strong & sturdy...
may your roots support & stabilize you
may your branches grow tall & wide & strong...
may your fruit be sweet & abundant
& so very blessed & nurtured....
loving hugs & bright blessings,
molly rice ~~aka earthdeva
