A cool PROMISE for 2022

Let us tippy-toe gracefully into this new year 2022. It is full to overflowing, bursting with lovely goodies.

To each is the promise of grace, overcoming opportunities, successes, victories, delights and much laughter.

With such lush promises we may feel to take our ease but, No, it is exactly the opposite that is required of you.

You already know the outcome, but be also aware that there will be bridges you must cross, lakes to paddle through, storms to weather, and mountains to climb.

However the promise remains true, the year is overflowing to bursting with successes, victories, delights and laughter for you. So never give in nor give up. But, seize your setbacks or moments of trials, as the very overcoming opportunities you need as your ladder to victory. Then climb high, and soar to heights of possibility!  Remember: ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.

~ Written by Lady Dawnecia Palmer, 2022

HAPPY JULY 2021

The Best July Month Beach Profile Pictures Of 2018June promised us the beginning of the fun months of longer, lighter days, and you will love July’s promises even more. July speaks of Flair and vitality, enjoying the loveliness of the outdoors, swimming, picnicking, grilling, blueberry and ice cream treats, and other summer culinary treats!

It was named after the Norman Dictator Julius Ceaser 100BC-44BC to name the month he was born. He was the first to blueprint the Gregorian Calendar we use today. People born in July are said to mainly optimistic in their outlook, extremely positively focused, looking on the brighter side of things.

July the seventh month of the year is the beginning month of the 2nd half of the year.  Dragonfly and Damselfly | San Diego Zoo Animals & PlantsKnown also as the month of the Dragonfly perhaps because, during molting, it shakes off the old and takes on the new, and after every molt, it enters a new phase of life symbolizing growth. In this way, July has been linked to the sacred text of 1Peter2:2  that encourages growth among believers – shaking off the old ways and aspire to become higher and better versions of ourselves. For the Native American tribes, dragonflies spiritually represent swiftness and activity.

The Best July Month Profile Pictures Of 2018July is a beautiful, uplifting season of the year, when many people feel a greater connection to the natural goodness of the earth, producing healing for the body, mind, and spirit.  Qualities associated with July are freedom, adventure, travel, a sense of wildness, artiness, growth, and radical change.

July has many National and International Awareness Days many of which most people are not aware of each year, see our shortlist below:

1st  World Doctors Day

2nd World Sports Day

4th July USA Independence Day

11th World Population Day

14th Bastille Day

June 2021

June represents the promised season of Summer, its lighter, longer days and dryer weather, ushers in for us a time of joy, laughter, and excitement!

 

At the time of writing it is the 21st day of the month, also known as the beginning of Summer Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere. It marks the start of summer in the northern half of the globe when the Sun reaches its highest and northernmost points in the sky occurs, taking longer for it to rise and to set. It is said to be the longest day of the year, and which this year fell on Sunday 20th June which was also Father’s Day. However, depending on the Sun the dates can fluctuate between, 20th, 21st, and 22nd. For example, Summer Solstice next year 2022 is set for Tuesday 21st June.

 

Celebrate Swedish Midsummer from anywhere in the world The 24th of June marks another significant date known as Mid-Summer, the midpoint of the growing season, halfway between planting and harvest.  From olden times this was celebrated with feasting, dancing, singing, and anticipation, especially by growers in preparations for their harvests and the hot summer days to come.  The people of Sweden enjoy at least 15hours of daylight for several weeks. And, in Christendom, it is known as the Feast of Saint John the Baptist celebration of his birthday.  John the Baptist foretold the birth of baby Jesus.

 

The word June has several meanings apart from a month on our Calander. It derives from the Latin word Junius and has roots connected with the Hebrew word Juniper and Junia meaning Daughter of God, and Juno after Roman goddess meaning Queen of Heaven.

 

Some of the many Awareness and Celebrations during June are; 12th World Day Against Child Labour, 17th World Blood Donor Day & World International Combat Desertification and Drought, 19th Sickle Cell Awareness Day, 20th Refugee Awareness Day, 21st Father’s day & World Music  Day.

Blessed Summer Solstice……. | My Moonlit Path.....

Whatever it means for you, may each, take the time to enjoy this radiant season and perhaps see it as the end beginning the next half of the year to exceed our best of the first half. May we make a time to happy our hearts,  drink in the sunshine with appreciation and great gratitude, and brighten our minds with kinder happier thoughts, getting outdoors and enjoying as much of the wide-open spaces as we can.

 

In the spirit of MAY: a mystic’s contemplation

Have you ever considered the meaning of the word May, apart from its indication of the present Month? Have you thought about how often you have used this word throughout your lifetime? I would say maybe every day? There it goes..maybe..

What does it actually mean? 

Wiki: May is the fifth month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian calendars and the third of seven months to have a length of 31 days. May is a month of spring in the Northern Hemisphere and autumn in the Southern Hemisphere.

 

May Goddess Guide: Maia/MajaInterestingly, you may or may not have known that May was the name of the Roman goddess Maia, who oversaw the growth of plants.  Maia was considered a nurturer and an earth goddess, which may explain the connection with this springtime month. The Greek name Maia comes from a root meaning “mother, nurse, midwife.” Also from the Latin word maiores, meaning ELDERS were celebrated during this month.

Google’s dictionary: 1. expressing possibility. 2. used to ask for or to give permission.

It seems to me that it in some ways indicates a strong possibility for, whilst at the same time granting permission to.
The meaning to and for is a powerful spiritual trigger and a tremendous remedial encouragement for the mind. Thinking Man PNG, Clipart, Thinking Man Free PNG Download
It gives us rights and confidence to pursue and persist with knowledge that there is a possibility, a more than likely chance –  especially when applied with another positive thought, word, or feeling. This excites me – I may be well, you may be well.  Imagine this!
To be, or not to be, that is the Question” - Kwize
William Shakespeare’s famous quote “To Be or not To be.”
How we have focussed on the word Be over the years since, allowing it as the directive, however here, let us see if there is not something more powerful because the To gives the Be-ing power, permission, assurance, confidence, all clear, advantage, condition, destination, and direction, call it what you will, I see a stream of light that may just be the lumination needed on the path.
500+ Prayer Images [HD] | Download Free Pictures On UnsplashIn the famous prayer of Jesus, for is used as a qualifying YES, indicating guarantee of Right and Reason, the purpose of belonging, intention, and connection – “for Thine is the kingdom, Power and the Glory.”
May: Possible? Yes, it very well maybe. So whilst one cannot be certain a thing will happen with a maybe, though indicating possibility, nevertheless, with a ‘you may command’ a thing is certain. And it is this sweet little wisdom that tickles my awareness.
Trees planted by streams of living water - All Saints HighertownMay May find in you a willing participant, an active, avid, ardent pupil, like trees planted by water, sending out roots by the stream, leaves always green, unafraid of the heat;

and finding confidence in Love, shall be called Blessed.
