May 31st: Like tomorrow is a gift

Key of Today Wednesday

Someday I hope you get the chance to live like you were dying… like tomorrow is a gift… what would you do with it?

–Live Like You Were Dyin’ by Tim McGraw

This will be a day to remember. You will likely look back someday and say, “ah, I remember that.” But there is more to this than may at first meet the eye. Rest assured, though, even with this much fiery energy around us, there is still a strong stability to it. No matter what, it will be interesting to say the least.

I wonder... what could you do with the gift of a new tomorrow? This energy is a sign of moving in a new direction. It’s an ‘out with the old, in with the new’ kind of day and as the old is ushered out, you may be given a wake up call to make changes that align with your desires and your truth.

At the same time, empowerment is a part of this. God doesn’t close a door without opening a window. Be sure to look for it.

All in all, this is a positive energy, and a positive day, though potentially it may not look like it at first glimpse. But still, it’s a pretty good indication of what you are being called to do or to go in the future. It’s got that ‘strip it down to the bare bones’ kind of attitude. Sometimes you just have to call a spade a spade, you know? There’s no getting around the reality of a situation today.

Don’t look back for a new direction. This day contains a message, or a messenger, that will ask you to be bold, be courageous, to bravely stand in your own light and even if you are afraid, do it anyway. You are not alone.

Today’s triad: Out with the old, in with the new. Tomorrow is a gift. You are not alone.

May 30th: Be the change

Key of Today Tuesday

We but mirror the world. All the tendencies present in the outer world are to be found in the world of our body. If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. This is the divine mystery supreme. A wonderful thing it is and the source of our happiness. We need not wait to see what others do.” – Mahatma Gandhi

This is one of those rare days when there is strong power for change, and a conscious shift that revolutionizes our lives. When the atmosphere gets stagnant or old, and our thinking reflects our yesterdays, we sometimes need a major adjustment. This is that kind of adjustment sort of day.

The backdrop of all this is the pulsing desire to be ourselves and to strip away all the duties and masks that no longer reflect our current desires, needs and design. There is a happiness quotient that needs fulfilling. We want to be playful; we long to let our hair down and be our original pure selves. We hear the call of the inner child wanting to be heard for he/she has something to say about all this.

I wonder… within the context of your growth and evolution in your sweet time here on this planet, where is your heart pulling you now? What changes would you make to both your physical and mental states that would reflect the authentic you of today? What status quo might you be willing or needing to shake up?

This is a time for forward thinking, not a time to return to the past or the old way of doing things. We have come too far, each of us individually, and as a collective, to continue to believe in isolation and selfishness. We are all in this together, and as such, we must move forward together, with no one left behind.

I suggest that you look around, and within, and observe what is changing. You can’t stop it. What you can do is look for someone less fortunate and give them a hand up. Look for someone who is more afraid of change than you are, and with kindness, encourage them and cheer them on. What you give, you will receive.

Today’s triad: Embrace change. Be the change. Change the world for someone.

May 29th: Reality check

Key of Today Monday

To be a champion, I think you have to see the big picture. It’s not about winning and losing; it’s about every day hard work and about thriving on a challenge. It’s about embracing the pain that you’ll experience at the end of a race and not being afraid. I think people think too hard and get afraid of a certain challenge.   –Summer Sanders, Olympic swimmer

It may be time for a reality check, dear ones. The storm that has been brewing is in position to clearly show us what’s what. But the good part about knowing what’s what is that now you know what’s what. If you are not sure what a thing is, you are bound to make false assumptions or choices that are not based on fact. Now that you know what you are dealing with, the path to overcoming it is a bit easier to comprehend.

Not that you are without comprehension, for you have known for awhile that something was up, just maybe not the breadth or depth or dimensions of it. Remember there are three sides to every story: yours, mine and the truth. Today’s energy is a ‘getting to the bottom of it’ kind of experience that may leave us a little stunned, but in the end, this truth will be freeing.

No one has to tell you that you have many resources available, but you may need to be reminded that you aren’t alone in this endeavor. Yes, you are the one who has to walk this road, and you are responsible for managing your resources, talents and gifts. But we are never alone and it is the interdependent connectedness of all living things that will allow you to plug in and feel the wind at your back. You are not alone.

I wonder… where will you be courageous today and apply the resources you have been blessed with? Where are your greatest challenges? I suggest that your greatest gifts are perfect for this challenge. So that makes the challenge a great gift in itself. Look deep within. Don’t run from the pain of this. In fact, move toward it and you will find that you have exactly what you need to not only face it, but also to rise above it.

Today’s triad: Reality check. Truth. Rise.
