Transformation – Life’s Lessons

This week, share a photo that embodies transformation. As always, I’m eager to see through your lens.

Everything in life is always in a stage of transformation. To understand our own part in transformation, we first have to clear away the fog to find the truth. Sometimes it’s easier to live behind the fogged window but eventually it will clear; then we can continue to hide or open our eyes to face our reality and make a decision on how to move forward. First look within before blaming life’s woes on others. Take action today to create the life you want. Are you blaming others for your life situation? If so, stop – see the part you play in the situation. I am guilty of this myself – it’s getting easier but there are still those times when I awaken to the fact that I’ve been living behind a window of fog. Once it is brought to my attention, I wipe it away to see my own part in creating the situation – whether considered a positive or negative they are all life lessons.

Today, on the day of my birth into this life, I make myself a promise to be more awake and aware, to face my life with honesty and truth – moving forward I will focus on creating a life where I take responsibility for my thoughts and actions.

“You’re always one decision away from a totally different life.” Mark Batterson

What decisions can you make today to create your ideal reality? Remember, we can’t change others but we can change the way we think about our situations. Sometimes it isn’t another causing our distress, it is the way we are thinking about it and our own reactions. If you want another to change, change your own thoughts and actions first – then see how everything shifts around you. Be the LIGHT not the darkness and others will follow.

Sending Love and Light to you all!

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Change.”

This week’s challenge made me think of so many photos that represent change – changes in weather, buildings, children, dragonflies – but tonight I decided on the Super moon lunar eclipse. What a sight this was!

CHANGE: To begin a new you must say farewell to who you once were. To open a new door you must close an old one first. That can be heartbreaking and scary, but it is necessary if you are to change and grow. Say goodbye to the old you, and rise up as a stronger, and more magical you, walk trough the doorway to a new happier life. ~ Odelia Sky ~ https://www.facebook.com/OdeliaSky.Healer/posts/724699524208270

It is said that the Super Moon Lunar Eclipse brings change and we should prepare ourselves – decide what to continue and what to release. Tonight I cleaned and smudged my home, meditated, then went out to watch the spectacular show. When I went back into my house, I took a nice long warm bath and contemplated changes that I will make in my life with the focus on releasing anything that is not working. It felt like an overall cleansing. So here are the photos of the eclipse that I was fortunate to witness.

It was quite a sight. As you can see from the first photo, the event started with an orangish ring around the moon. Every time I went outside there was a change in the color. First a small piece of the moon disappeared in shadow. Then the orangish-red began to cover the moon. Amazing!

Our Universe is amazing and ever-changing as is our environment. It is a miracle that we are alive to enjoy this wonderful life we have been blessed with. Is we slow down and become mindful of our purpose life would be a beautiful and rewarding experience.

Love and Light!
