Hello Dear Friend,
How has your week been? Mine has been full of connections and links, new and old. Welcome if you are new here, thank you for subscribing. Pull up a chair and tell me about yourself. Imagine we are having a brew in your favourite place. To those who have been here for a while, hello again my friend, how are you? It makes my week complete writing to you like this. It helps me to think about all the little things which popped up during the past week and their connections (that word again…) to us all.
I had the most magical conversation on Wednesday with a couple of souls about intentions and universal energy. Intentions can be thoughts, rituals, or demands. How do you ask out for the things you desire? Are you open to anything that is for your greatest good, and for the good of all around you? Or are you focused on just one thing? A promotion? A windfall? Fame and Glory? A book contract? During the conversation, I began to see that asking out with intent for just one thing could become a blockage, rather than a way for the universe to help you.
If you only want one thing, and dismiss everything else. Might you be preventing the universe, spirit, or your angels, (however you think of it) to guide you to what is for your greatest good? By staying open to the opportunities that come across your path, you could experience things in an unexpected, but wondrous way.
The conversation on Wednesday was a little like that - a request on LWS for people to complete a survey about living life with intentions, which I completed. At the end of the survey was a link to stay in touch and maybe meet up virtually to discuss things further. The dates for these discussions arrived, I looked at them and promptly forgot them… However, last weekend when I attended one of the weekend writer’s sessions, the survey was mentioned in conversation, reminding me. I often talk about the universe giving me nudges, well this one was big enough to leave a bruise… ;0) I rifled through the inbox, found the email, and the last session was on Wednesday evening at 10 pm. Now those of you who know me well will know that on the whole, I am not a night owl, bedtime is usually 9 pm-ish. But I duly responded, and stayed up.
I am so glad I did. It clarified my thinking about universal energy. How it affects us, and how we engage with it. Visualise it if you can, we are standing in a gently moving stream of energy, it flows around us, above us, below us and through us. If we put hard intentions into the flow, it is like placing a big rock there, impenetrable, immovable. If we just ask out for all that is meant for us, it is a gentler way of asking, floating your intentions off softly into the energy flow.
Allowing the universe to transmute it as it wills, returning it to us in an infinity loop of energy exchange.
I would love to know your thoughts and experiences around this, please leave a comment, or reply to this letter.

A note about the Tarot reading for July
The monthly collective reading will now be coming out on the last day of the month, as a separate email.
Why the last day? Well, it is so that those of you who reflect back on the previous month and possibly plan for the upcoming month will have it there waiting for you. So watch out for an email on Thursday morning.
Until next time, as ever, may your angels and guides watch over you and protect you until we meet again.
Love and Light,

Reading and Listening to this week:

* The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle - this is an intriguing book, with lots of twists, I am about halfway through and hoping to have it finished this week.
* Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer - Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants, I have just started listening to this, but it is lovely, her voice takes you on a journey through the wisdom of the past.
