I’ve been away for a time, I had some sorting out to do with my life. I won’t bore you with the details, but here’s a little recap for you, my readers that have been asking. I’ll leave you with several pieces of poetry that helped me while navigating through my whirlpool. I love you Mermaid Junkies…
We don’t need a reason to feel good. When we rely on surrounding conditions to make us feel good we will always expect joy to come from someone or something other than ourselves.
Law of attraction and manifesting what we want in life is all about finding the joy without the condition.
We create our own reality. What we choose to focus on increases. Our universe is non-inclusive. If we focus on what we don’t want, we get more of that. If we focus on what we do want we get more of that.
We get what we place our focus upon. Continue Reading
Hello there my dearest friends,
I hope the days have found you well and you are enjoying the change of seasons that are transpiring about.
I most assuredly adore the fall season. So many beautiful things to look upon and appreciate.
Before I get going along, you may want to go get a lovely cup of tea and cookies before you settle in to read this post. Here’s mine.
I have lots to talk with you about. So, I’ll wait until you come back.
Okay, are we ready now?
First, I wanted to tell you how excited I am about the happenings at “The English Settlement”. I had numerous responses in regards to what the non-profit is exactly and how to participate. That’s so sweet and lovely sentiments from you. Thank you sincerely. It means oodles to me.
I thought I’d share the link to the page describing what the mission statement is and what the foundation is about exactly since several of you asked. So here’s the link The English Settlement Continue Reading
I’ve been gone from my blog, but you my dears… have been on my mind every day.
You may not have noticed from my main page under Oceans and Potions, but I added a drop down for The English Settlement . There you may swim on over and see what I’ve been steadily working on for the past 14 months.
I am in the process of purchasing my first home for The English Settlement, which is located in Carmel, California aka. (heaven on earth) By this time next year, we will have had several fundraisers, as well as workshops and retreats. I can’t tell you how excited I am! To finally see progress and all of my efforts coming to fruition.
It’s a beautiful thing!
Thank you to each of you for reading my blog and supporting me. It means the world to me. I hope to see each of you in California. We’ll have a lovely experience together. Continue Reading
I’d like to tackle the subject of staying focused since Ive always struggled with this.
I’m a Pisces (maybe that has nothing to do with it), but Pisces seem to have a dreamy, flighty imaginative imagination and staying focused is a toughie for me.
Do you struggle with this? You spend an hour scheduling your weekly events, compiling a “to do” list, and then realize “oh crap” I didn’t get half of these things done!
What we focus on propels everything.
When we have too many choices or decisions that have to be made, Science has proven we will opt for none.
Water has a significant different refractive index to air, and this affects the focusing of the eyes. Animals eyes are adapted to either underwater or air vision and do not focus properly when in the other environment. There is a lens of the fishes eye’s called the crystalline lens. They’re extremely convex and their refractive indices are the highest of all animals.
As a Mermaid at Weeki Wachee, I had the lovely opportunity to enjoy all the beautiful outward appearances of being a performer.
As a mermaid trainee though (before I was officially a mermaid and able to swim in shows) I was designated numerous chores. The chores were given because Mermaids always pulled rank. Mermaids didn’t have to do work or chores, they had earned their ‘fins’ so to speak.
One of my jobs, along with other trainees was to clean all of the glass for the underwater stage, and all the props that were used in the shows. If you know anything about water and the natural cycle of algae you’d know it can start building up very rapidly. The algae had to be cleaned every other day.
There was a particular area of the river that was on the outskirts part of where the shows were performed called the dome.
