“The quieter you become, the more you can hear.” The mind. It can be a calm ocean of happiness and peace or it can be a whirlpool, dangerous and just plain scary. Our minds are often bombarded with many thoughts that must be controlled. There’s no limit to what we as humans can accomplish, but…
Good day Angels!
I was wondering as I came across this amazing creature if any of you have ever heard of the Cyrtopleura Costata? Well, if you have not heard of it – here is a bit of information on this Angelic creature…
“Cyrtopleura Costata is a bivalve mollusc in the family Pholadidae. It is found in shallow parts of the northwest Atlantic, living in the seabed, where it burrows through sand and mud to a depth of up to 3 feet (0.91 m)
Cyrtopleura costata has a pair of brittle, asymmetric white valves and can grow to about 7 inches (180 mm) in length. The anterior end is elongated and has a rounded point which is used for digging through the substrate. The posterior end is truncated and rounded and near the beak has an apophysis, a wing-like flange, which helps provide an attachment for the foot muscles. On the anterior side of the beak, the margin is smooth and bent slightly upwards. The whole valve has finely sculptured radial ribs which intercept with a series of concentric growth rings parallel with the margin. In the living animal, the valves are covered by the periostracum, a thin grey protective layer of protein which is part of the shell. This layer has usually been stripped away by sand and surf by the time that the empty shells are washed up on the beach, and the valves are usually found singly, because the muscles that hold them together are weak. Internally, the live mollusc has a powerful muscular foot and a pair of long, fused siphons. These siphons are unable to retract back into the shell and as a result, the two valves permanently gape apart.
Cyrtopleura costata lives beneath the surface of the sea bed. It is able to bore through sand, mud, wood, clay and even soft rock using a twisting motion of its pointed, anterior end assisted by jets of water ejected from the mantle cavity. It is a filter feeder. The siphons extend to the surface of the substrate and water is drawn in through one and expelled through the other with microalgae and zooplankton being filtered out as the water passes through the gills. Respiration takes place at the same time. Cilia then waft the food particles to the mouth.
Spawning usually takes place in summer. Gametes are passed out of the exhalent siphon and fertilisation takes place externally. After hatching, eggs develop into veliger larvae which are planktonic. After 16 to 21 days these undergo metamorphosis into a pediveliger stage and settle out onto a soft substrate such as sand. There they become juveniles and start burrowing.”
Is this not the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen? There are always sign near and far and always around us. Be open, have no doubt, have no fears, stay positive, and be around only positive individuals as negativity only bring us and our energy down.
Stay Blessed Angels and know you are always Loved!
Always with Light and Love!
Good morning Angels…
I was going through my emails this morning and read this one in particular that could not have hit home more perfectly…
“slow down your mental rhythms in the midst of your tension, pressure, stress and friction; that you realize these are the elements of potential that may require action or stillness; that you remain clear at all times to make this decision . . . have a green juice, meditate, and embrace the winds of your life . . . no matter what direction they’re blowing.”
I hardly got any sleep last evening due to SO much stress in my life right now. So much so that it is making me ill. I really needed to see this and pray it helps to remind me “slow down.”
Amen … right… 8)
Always with Light & Love Angels!
I just “LOVE” these three and all that they do and are. Please read and enjoy the one and only Drivin’ & Vibin’…
Sometimes you need a little additional Guidance and Light so you pull a few cards for us ALL … Let’s take a look and see what we have for the day Angels…
(These cards are from the Archangel Oracle Cards deck by Doreen Virtue.)
Overcoming Difficulties: “The worst is now behind you, and you are surmounting any previous challenges.”
I certainly loved reading this little bit of insight and am ready for my next chapter in this little life of mine.
Clear Your Space: “Get rid of clutter, clear the energy around you, and use feng shui.”
I have cleared so much space that I look forward to “not” having too much clutter around me and welcome all of the energy and feng shui I can muster.
Compassion: “Soften your heart with respect to this situation, and all the people involved, including yourself.”
Soften to myself, ok, I needed to read this so it will sink in and I can let so much go.
Moon Cycles: “Notice how the Moon effects your energy and manifestations, and capitalize upon these cycles.”
I need to be more conscientious of the Moon cycles. I usually am aware, but as of late it has been going by the way side. But, things have changed and I am so ready to get back to the “me” I can truly be.
Those are my answers to today’s reading… how about you? What might your feelings and thoughts in general be about these cards today?
My Angels – I pray all is well and you are listening more and more to your inner Angelic Guidance.
Always with Light and Love ~ Always!
I saw this post this weekend via email through https://www.theminimalists.com/3030rule/ and had to share. The below is a great way in which to process the need of impulse buying and maintain a minimalist lifestyle. Having too much stresses me out so the idea below of a 30/30 Rule sounds pretty awesome. With this I trust in the Guidance of my Angels. We do not always need the fancy nick knacks, fancy gadgets, the pretty jewelry, etc… At the end of the day, it’s just stuff that you cannot take with you. But life and adventures stay with you forever and provide you with more peace and fulfillment than any physical item can.
“To stave off impulse, I created a rule that helps me avoid unnecessary purchases.
If something I want costs more than $30, I ask myself whether I can get by without it for the next 30 hours. Hence, “the 30/30 Rule.” (If it’s $100 or more, I tend to wait 30 days.)
This extra time helps me assess whether or not this new thing will add value to my life. Often, after deliberating, I recognize my life will be better without the new widget, so I forgo the purchase.
If I do acquire the new item, though, I feel better about the acquisition because I brought it into my life with intention, not in the impulse of the moment.”
Thank you to the Minimalist’s for sharing this post. It will be a huge help to others and myself.
Have an amazing week Angels!
My Angels, I pray this message finds you all well and getting ready to enjoy our Independence Day. As with everything, we give the utmost thanks to all the men and women who serve our Country and always continue to Fight for ALL of our Freedoms. To them we bow our heads, pray for them, and give thanks. They are all Loved more than they know and by so so many.
Always stand tall Angels, hold that head high, always be proud of who you are as there is only one of you, and always – always appreciate everything this life has to offer. Appreciate and have respect from every little thing (even the tad poles) to every big thing (even the elephants). Life is short Angels and should be appreciated and loved for all it has to offer.
Please be safe and enjoy your family and friends.
Happy 242nd Independence America and to us all.
God Bless us, every one!
Always with Light and Love to you ALL from me!
