Funny Spell!

I’m in a left three and nine. Apple sauce, I’ve been bibberty bobberty booed. I wrongs are coming out word. It’s very laugh though. Dream place was nice before this morning. Eyelids covered balls for many minutes. Hundreds of them were counted not as I didn’t sit, snoring. Not. Zedding between the bedding. Water droplets sprinkled without the window I used my ears to notice at some point. Clapperty boom and startle flashing was experienced during slumber. And swish wished leaves rustled with rattly letter boxes. Ringy ding thing oh rub eyes before bath. Then employment.

Earlier before now but later than employment finished, food was chewed and swallowed, and produced pleasure. Square box with movey pictures within the light was observed by I, and liked. And yet I get to now. With hope, this funny spell will be no longer in me again after shut eyes. Still. Earlier than the next time right now the latter!



It’s 10:10:10

The last time a date similar to this occurred was 09:09:09, not too long ago. An even similar date occurred 1000 years ago, 10:10:10. I remember it well! 🙂

It’s a bit of a big thing for organised events for positive action on climate change, with lots of events happening around the world, details are at http://www.1010global.org/

A little closer to home, things are slightly quieter for me today. I’m sneezing every two minutes as I have a bit of a cold, which means things aren’t that quiet, but never mind that! Stay with the moment and all that!

I’ve been doing a bit of research into the number ten, and have found that:

  • The tenth card of the Tarot is The Wheel of Fortune, which can mean:
    • Turning point; Opportunities; Possibilities
    • Destiny; Fate; Superior Forces; Movement
    • Development; Activity; Surprises; Expansion
    • Sudden Events; Speed; New Developments; Life Cycles
    • Interpretation; Sudden Change; Discention; Approachability

Which is a bit of a coincidence considering I was writing about interpretation and destiny yesterday. I honestly don’t plan these things, you know, they just happen! 🙂

  • J is the tenth letter of the alphabet. J also represents current density in electricity

Now you have to just see that one to believe it! Current (as in now) and density = destiny (well, the letters are there!)

  • Kappa is the tenth letter of the Greek alphabet
  • Capricorn is the tenth sign of the zodiac
  • X is the roman numeral for 10
  • Hexagram 10 in the I Ching is Lu, which stands for treading carefully:
  • Keyphrase: Correct conduct.

    Formed By The Trigrams: Heaven over Lake.

    Imagery: The sky over a lake.

    General: A successful journey can be assured if one careful step at a time is taken.

    Love: Goodwill is the key to solving any relationship issues.

    Business: Achieving success within business is best accomplished treating others with courtesy and respect.

    Personal: Focus on ridding yourself of any feelings of envy or jealousy.

    Overview: Lu relates to the need to develop your social skills and to make sure that they are sincere and not insincere. It indicates a need to make sure that jealousy or envy are not present within your life and if they are, to take steps to resolve them. Lu is all about inequality and the need to avoid it.

  • J in the Celtic Tree Calendar, or Ogham, is represented by Ioho, or Yew (I and Y are also represented by the same tree), and it represents rebirth; complete change in life direction or attitude.
  • 10 is represented by ‘dec’, for example decade, decimal or December.

Hang on! December is the twelfth month of the year, that can’t be right. But it is! October is the tenth month of the year, but ‘oct’ indicates 8. This only makes sense when you realise that the Roman calendar began in March, making December the tenth month. Trivial, but true!

  • 10 is cool in this little rhyme to remember the Celsius temperature scale:

Thirty is hot

Twenty is nice

Ten is cool

Zero is ice

  • Ten little facts about the number ten have been listed above, well, including this one. This one actually isn’t a fact, it’s a statement. It is the truth though, so that does in fact make it a fact! 🙂

Enjoy your day!

My own destiny…

This post actually follows on quite nicely to what I was writing about yesterday, in a coincidental kind of way. The message has just filtered through to me, although I have been asking for the message to come to me for a long long time. The signs have always been there, but I have read them in a slightly different way. Not in a wrong way, as they are only signs to be interpreted. I had interpreted them in the way that I wanted to see them, not in the way they were intended for me. When I first started this blog I wrote about this being the place where my thoughts and ideas would be posted. My thoughts and ideas. But sometimes those thoughts and ideas may not really reflect what is actually under the surface. I had misinterpreted what I was thinking, what I was meaning. I wasn’t wrong, in my mind, but I also wasn’t that clear.

Some of the signs were literally screaming out their meanings to me, yet I still didn’t grasp the full intended meaning. Take, for example, the Shakira song I wrote about a couple of days ago. Some of the lines in the song are:

“This is your time to shine”

“Today’s the day”

“Seize the moment”

“Don’t wait in line”

“Raise expectation”

“This is your moment” and

“You pave the way, don’t hesitate”

I liked the song because I liked the rhythm. I also like the words. There really is a reason in everything we come across. We just have to notice what that reason is. The coincidences I experience everyday are no coincidence – they happen because they have something to tell me. I believe that I experience coincidences because I am in the right place at the right time to notice them. There are probably even more coincidences happening that I don’t notice because I am looking in the wrong direction, which could indicate that in that moment I am slightly off-track with where I should be. Not with my life, obviously, just for that split second. However, with me experiencing the number of coincidences that I do, I feel I’m more on-track than off it. And that feels good.

On the fourth of October I did another of those on-line tarot readings that I wrote about toward the end of last month. I didn’t write about it here as it was too soon after the last reading, or so I thought, but the ‘present’ card was the Wheel of Fortune… the reading that was provided said ” Chance: A turn of events. Fate spins off in new directions and fate takes the stage. Chance presents new opportunities for those who seize the day”. I did another reading today, and the ‘present’ card was 8 of Pentacles, which read “Skill: There is no substitute for talent and experience. A person of exceeding skill and mastery. A time for diligently applying what has been learned in the past” and the ‘future’ card was The World. The coincidence here is that yesterday I was writing about living now and the card selected today, in the present, states a time for diligently applying what has been learned in the past. Again, all of this is open to interpretation, but that could be the message advising me to look closer to the coincidences and learn from them.

There had to be a reason why I got to hear Shakira’s song when I did, and not before.

Another example of a message trying to get through was a song that I kept hearing everywhere I went, every time I turned on the TV or the radio, or if a car drove passed with it’s music system on very loud (which happened quite a lot…) was ‘About You Now’ sung by Miranda Cosgrove. The chorus goes:

Can we bring yesterday back around?

‘Cos I know how I feel about you now

I was dumb, I was wrong, I let you down

But I know how I feel about you now

I was singing that song for months, well, humming the tune – I didn’t actually know the words apart from the ‘about you now’ bit. Even the title was giving that clue away, but I was looking elsewhere.

I always look forward to the future. I have written about my dreams of my large house, my fantastic job, having the money I want to do whatever I want, but one thing was missing. I have written about Cosmic Ordering, and requesting things from the universe that I want in the moment, but again, an empty space had been created. I wrote a blog post all about nothing, but didn’t mention this space, which is really, in my opinion, the biggest space ever. The reason I have wrote all of that is to get to this point. The message that has filtered through to me. (I feel like I should have a drum roll in the background now.)

Chasing dreams is a good thing to do. It passes the time, makes me feel good, and lets the universe know what I may be requesting the next time I send a Cosmic Order (consciously or not). The thing is, by chasing those dreams I am actually running away from my destiny. The destiny that has brought me up to this point. The events in the past that have happened for a reason. By chasing my dreams I am missing my now. Missing such fundamental things that are screaming out to be noticed because I am looking elsewhere.

Like I have said having dreams is good, and I do not for one minute want to stop having them. I enjoy my Cosmic Ordering and would never want to stop doing that either. But I must also turn my attention to the most important thing here. Me. I’m right here, right now. Pay more attention to what is happening in the gift known as the ‘present’ around me. Not such a vast shift in thought when you come to think of it. So, this is my time to shine, today’s the day, to seize the moment. I don’t want to wait in line any longer, I have to raise my expectation. This is my moment. I must pave the way and not hesitate. And I know how I feel about me now.

Message received loud and clear. And I really feel good!

Time to change?

In time… out of time… no time… all of the time…. time to do this… a waste of time… time on our hands… time and time again… time to wake up… time heals… time travel… time to start?

There’s plenty of time all around us, all of the time in fact. The most important time of all though is right now.

Whatever we have done in the past stays in the past. It is done. We may be proud of what we have achieved, or we may feel embarrassed by it. There is nothing at all we can do to change whatever we have done in the past. If we feel that we need to make changes, the changes can only be made now. If we need to build our confidence to start to make those changes, the decision to start can only be made now. If we want to change our minds, we can only do that now. Whatever we need to do, we can only start now.

Dreams of our fantastic futures are just that. Dreams. They may be glimpses of our actual future, but we don’t know for sure as we aren’t there yet. We don’t want a terrible future, we want to be happy, healthy, wealthy and wise. We can only make the decision to be like that now. We can start to put the wheels in motion so our futures are bright, but only we can do that, and only we can choose to do that right now.

Forget about petty squabbles, embarrassing moments, what such-a-body thinks of you, what you think of what’s-her-face and anything else that is keeping you in a low place. Start to know that all of these things are just in the past. Move on. Actually be the person you want to be, rather than trying to be the person you think everyone else wants you to be. It may feel awkward at the beginning – any change does – but the awkwardness will go within time. The things that you wanted to change will have changed. But they will only change if you decide to take action and start to change them now.

We all know that time passes quickly. When will it be your time to start to live your life?

Amazing music!

I’ve tried all ways to post a couple of music videos from You Tube, but I’ve been thwarted at every step! Not to be put off, I’ll list the music that I like instead. Imagine me singing along. Better still, don’t imagine that, and if you’ve not heard the music yourself, listen to it! Music can completely change your mood.

I love this song! I hate football, but I love this song. The fact that it is the official 2010 FIFA World Cup song makes no difference to the fact that I like it – it’s that good! And what I like makes me feel good – so this song makes me feel good!

Shakira ft. Freshlyground – Waka Waka (This Time for Africa) (The Official 2010 FIFA World Cup Song)

As an avid viewer and longtime fan of the Eurovision Song Contest, I would not forgive myself if I didn’t include this next song in my list of amazing music.  Having said that, there’s about another fifty or so songs from Eurovision that I could include, but this one must top the list. This song makes me feel thoughtful, and reminiscent.

Yohanna – Is It True (second place in the ESC 2009)

————————————————–The two pictures above are screen grabs from the official video, and the picture to the left is Yohanna’s performance at Eurovision. I like the official video, but the staging of her performance at Eurovision was superb!


———–This next song makes me feel kind of sad, but in a good way, if that makes any sense at all. It makes me feel as though I’m on a journey and always learning something, but I am also always moving forward, which means sometimes things are left behind. I can’t really put into words how I feel but that’s the closest way to describe it. And, no, it’s not confused!

The Killers – Human

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–       ——————-The final song that I’m going to add my comments to about the deep feelings it stirs within me is this one from many many moons ago. This one makes me feel dreamy and full of anticipation for the future, and considering it is old compared to the other three I’ve posted about today, that is saying something!

Buggles – Video killed the radio star

And there we have it. Four completely different songs. Loads of completely different feelings, but all of which make me feel good. I don’t only like these four songs by the way. Oh, no, there’s lots more. I’ll post about them at some point in the near future…
