It rained yesterday. A good rain. The wash (dry river bed) that runs to the west of our property and though the vacant desert land, across the street, north of our home became a stream and then a river. Carrying sand, branches and bits of trash to a new location.
I love being the first human to walk on the newly carpeted sand, still damp from the flow of rain water. Has the feeling of coming home to a clean house, familiar yet infused with a new energy. The feel of moist sand under my tennis shoes, the sound of near by birds mingling with distance traffic, the quality of light still shaded by a few clouds lingering from the storm, feeding my soul.
Taking a seat at my turn around point, a slab of concrete illegally dumped decades ago and slowly being covered with grains of displaced sand. Saying a prayer of gratitude, thank you for the rain, the sun, the sky, the birds and this day. It is a good morning.

Honoring a message received this morning.
The corner alter in my living room contains two candles, one to disperse aromatherapy oil the other to send prayers. A small prayer book with Ganesh on the cover (the elephant header Hindu God who removes obstacles) has a place next to the crystal prayer candle holder. Mala (prayer) beads surround a small smiling Buddha with uplifted hands.
Most mornings I choose two cards and a stone to place on my alter.
The stone chosen today said "Health".
The Louise Hay Power Thought Card:
- Front: "My healing is already in process."
- Back: My willingness to forgive begins my healing process. I allow the love from my own heart to wash through me, cleansing and healing every part of my body. I know I am worth healing."
The Virtues Card:
After several readings of the list of Practices of Forgiveness: I am inviting in
"I have the power to change for the better".
I am worth healing!
