CYRTOPLEURA COSTATA (ANGEL CLAM WINGS)

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!

BEES … BEES … and More BEES …

A Bees Life.png

Sat Nam Dear Ones-

The lives of the bees are parallel to the well-being of life itself. It’s as if the bee is a blueprint for the values, processes, challenges and opportunities of evolution. It’s known that without bees there can be no life . . . they pollinate all the food supplies. And even though there’s a hierarchy at the top of a colony, the health of the entire colony depends on the equality of everyone. Every bee is respected and protected with the same reverence as a source of collective well being . . . figuratively and literally. Honoring the queen of a colony is like life honoring the feminine; it’s the ability for future generations to be born and nurtured . . . for a future to exist. This is extremely weak in today’s human communities and therefore the future is fragile.

The underlying structure of equality is also displayed in the geometry of the hive . . . the assemblage of hexagrams into combs. Hexagrams have the strength of triangles, plus an ability to span large areas without collapsing. The ancient Chinese related to the ‘hexagrams’ strength in their book of changes — The Iching. The idea was that the only constant in existence is change, and the ability to understand change was in understanding the common threads throughout the structure. For this they used the spanning strength of the hexagram . . . always the same, even in constant changes. The queen’s health and vitality is the colony’s purpose, like collective vitality, happiness and fulfillment, underlies healthy human communities. Without this in life, everything else means nothing.

Our prayer is that you realize the constant changes in life have a common thread in vitality, happiness and fulfillment; that you hold this constant as your compass in the chaos, and then use change as a variety of opportunities to improve the vitality, happiness and fulfillment for yourself and those around you . . . what goes around always comes around. 

Always with Sacred Love, Blessings, Prayer & Gratitude…Sat Nam,

Good morning Angels!!  I thought I would share this special message from Guru Singh & Guruperkarma Kaur.  It’s a special message for me since I was stung a week ago by a bee and my arm swelled up and it lasted for an entire week.  With that said, Bees are important and I would not want to harm them, but rather keep them safe cared for.

Enjoy and Have a Great Day ANGELS!

GOATS 💜 🐐

THE LAW of GIVING & RECEIVING

“The Law of Giving and Receiving”

The Law of Giving and Receiving: The universe operates through dynamic exchange – giving and receiving are different aspects of the flow of energy in the universe. And in our willingness to give that which we seek, we keep the abundance of the universe circulating in our lives.

I will put the Law of Giving into effect by making a commitment to take the following steps:

Wherever I go, and whoever I encounter, I will bring them a gift. The gift may be a compliment, a flower, or a prayer. Today, I will give something to everyone I come into contact with, and so I will begin the process of circulating joy, wealth and affluence in my life and in the lives of others.
Today I will gratefully receive all the gifts that life has to offer me. I will receive the gifts of nature: sunlight and the sound of birds singing, or spring showers or the first snow of winter. I will also be open to receiving from others, whether it be in the form of a material gift, money, a compliment or a prayer.

I will make a commitment to keep wealth circulating in my life by giving and receiving life’s most precious gifts: the gifts of caring, affection, appreciation and love. Each time I meet someone, I will silently wish them happiness, joy and laughter.

MEETING UP THANKS TO YouTube ~

MEETING UP THANKS TO YouTube ~ Jason Stephenson

Good afternoon my lovely Angels.  I thought I would share with you a video from Jason Stephenson, a very nice gentleman from Australia who has a YouTube channel that shares weekly meditations, affirmations and inspirations.  I just love his channel and I got the chance to meet him and make a new friend.  What a great joy it was to meet him, to sit for a while and have a nice conversation, and be able to actually learn more about each other. I had a great time!

Please enjoy this video (I’m at 1:24 in wearing the purple plaid shirt :)) and also enjoy his view of the Grand Canyon via helicopter and boat.  What views he shares – simply amazing!  Thank you Jason.

This amazing photo is by a fabulous photographer, Joshua Weinfeld at http://www.joshuaweinfeld.com/

As you can see from this majestic photo, Angelic beauty is everywhere and looking at this photo I can feel the peace, the tranquility, the even flow of the Angels above looking upon the land and the minions below as well as the love we all feel for mother earth.  When gazing upon such a vast and open natural beauty such as this, it make me want to just sit silently, view my surroundings of the natural wonder, breath in and out, and just relax and meditate.  Ah, what peace that would be and what peace this photo brings.

Happy Friday my Angels and may you all have a great weekend!
