Magickal Flexibility is to go with the currents of life. You can bend and not break all at the same time.  You have the wisdom to know the difference between going with the flow and surrendering.

I stand in line,

I can conform,

It is a must.

That’s okay because I can conform but not forget myself.

(By Cassandra Allen, Dec 10, 2015, (Opinion Flexibility)

 

Magickal Flexibility

Magickal Flexibility is not about surrendering your Will during stormy situations.  It is instead about yielding to those influences that require you accept what you cannot change.  You may bend, but you will not break.

Sometimes life throws us a curve. Things do not always go the way we would like them to go.  We do not always have control over everything.

If you are like me, you are a free spirit!  You do not like the word ‘must’.  You hate it when someone tells you that you “must” do this,  you “must” do that; that you “must” conform…

However, in our lives, the severity in other people brings us to yield to their influences.  To not comply, can sometimes cause serious consequences to ourselves as well as to those who rely upon us.  We have the responsibility of changing ourselves for the good of all concerned.

Making yourself capable of change

Making yourself capable of change is to find the courage to adapt to people and situations.  Sometimes we must ‘adapt’ to the changing tides of circumstances.  You are capable of change.

You must be willing to change.  This takes backbone, but you can manage to do so.  If not you will break under certain circumstances.

In certain situations, quickly change yourself.  Substitute the way you usually react, for an easier way to respond.  Bring yourself to try a different way!  Gently flow through sticky issues.

More Powerful people than you

More Powerful people than you, control you.  You need to realize that these people exist in your immediate environment.  Moreover, you need to identify them.

These influential people control you.  You can not control them.  What you can control is how you react to them.

People with more influence than you, control you.  There are always such people in your family and your neighborhood; they are in your school or your workplace.  They are in your city; your State; your country; and around the world.

Such people, make decisions about you and your life.  You can not control what decisions they make concerning you.  However, you can choose how you react to them.  They can make or break you.

When someone or a group can make or break you, bend instead.  By being able to change, you keep your inner power.  This makes you become an Agent of Balance!

Restoring equilibrium

Restoring Equilibrium is to balance the scales of Lady Justice.  An Agent of Balance is someone who maintains stability in their environment, or in their extended environment. It is someone who has the wisdom to know the difference between good and bad consequences.

You can be an Agent of Balance or Equilibrium when someone is controlling.   You can choose to be levelheaded.  You can decide to stay calm in the eye of the storm.  Do not give in to the temptations severe people place before you on a silver platter; be wiser than Job.

Other people may advise us to walk simply away from sticky situations.  They even go as far as to tell us to cut such kinds of individuals from our lives.  Sadly, it is not always wise to do so.  You are not always the captain of your boat.

Instead, and as this Flexible Oracle Card tells us, “gently flow through the turbulence.”   Go with the flow by yielding to their influence.  Be at the same time, both durable and flexible!

Magickal Flexibility is to be both lasting and flexible.  Influential people can bend you, but they can not break you.  Flexibility is a potent agent of Equilibrium.

Repeat the following Affirmation:

“I have the serenity to accept what I cannot change.  I have the courage to change what I can.  Moreover, I have the wisdom to know the difference”.

Banishing Confusion

Banishing Confusion is to remember who you are.  Honor your true self by knowing your truth.  Be of clear mind.

Banishing Confusion

Banishing Confusion takes great courage.  It requires you to know the difference between living in a lie or telling yourself the truth.  It is to remember who your true self really is.

We are social creatures.  It is expected of us to play the games people play.  This at all cost to ourselves.  This takes an enormous toll on us.

Far too many of us wake up in the morning having to face who we truly are as individuals.  You look in the mirror and see your true self.  When you turn and walk away from the mirror, you forget who you are.

Forgetting who you are

Forgetting who you truly are, is likened to walking into a fog.  It is a mist of illusions.  In this fog, you do not recognize yourself anymore.  By wanting to fit in with others, you become but the shadow of your inner self…

Some days, you feel confused.  You telephone yourself and tell yourself a story.  Listening to your own stories you tell yourself, you begin to believe your own lies.  After awhile, you get a sense of having lost control of your own life, of your own destiny.

 

Banishing Confusion
Banishing Confusion Five of Swords Gilded Tarot

 

In the confusion, you begin to no longer make the difference between your own bells and whistles, fog and mirrors, and those of other people.  Other people appreciate you for living up to their standards.  For winning at the games they play.

People flatter you for not contradicting them when you ketch them in the lies they tell.  After a while, even you begin to believe in those…

 

Remember who you are

Remember who you are!  You really do not need a banishing spell.  Simply walk away from the confusion. Find a quiet, secluded place of peace.  Rediscover your true self by spending time with yourself alone.

By walking away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, you leave the confusion behind.  You begin to peel away the different layers of illusions.  You remember your truth.  You remember who you were when you looked at yourself in the mirror in the morning.

You begin to become aware of your truth.  You start to tell yourself your truth.  You start to believe again in your truth.

Discover your strength

Discover your strength!  Within yourself is the ability to remain in control of your own truth.  You have the power!  You control them!

When you discover your inner strength, you are powerful and you are in control.  You banish the fog from your eyes.  You are no long homeless and lonely.  You can again live with yourself, and are comfortable when in your own company.  And people will say of you:  he/she is a miracle!

 

Tarot Affirmation

Each morning when you wake up, know that the power is in your thoughts.  Repeat to yourself the following affirmation so to banish the confusion over your life:

 

“I honor my true self.  I am a miracle!”

Weaving Yuletide Friendships

Weaving Yuletide Friendships is about you being a valuable friend to one another.  Friends who are valuable to one another, are worthy of mutual trust.  Trust is gained, so be opened to having such friends.

Valued Friends

Valued Friends make each other whole!  They make each other shine!  They love and care about each other.  They bring out the best in each other.

True Friends

True Friends “weave magic into your days and bring out the best in you”, Jody Bergsma, Magical Times Empowerment Cards.  In turn, you do the same for them.  Because you are both worthy of this type of friendship!

Friendship Worthy

Friendship Worthy, is one of the most crucial crafting one will ever do; this in your own life as well as in the life of your friend!  This does not happen overnight.  Such friendships takes a lot of work.

During the Yuletide Season, we get busy.  We may have a lot of parties to attend; a lot of shopping to do.  We may even have marathon cooking to do for our own respective families.  This is only natural and quite understandable.

However, Yuletide is also about your friendships.  It is also about Making room and time for our friends, most especially for our close friends.  This is part and parcel of what Yuletide/Christmastide is all about.

This is a Winter Season of making merry and being of good cheer.  After all is said and done, including our family and “friends” in our celebrations is worth the money we spend on it all.  Most especially at this wonderful time of the year, weaving Yuletide Friendships is indeed a fine art!  It is the season of kindness!  So be a kind friend, and remember your friends too.

This is the season to show and tell your friends that they are valuable to you.  That you appreciate their value, by sending them a Christmas/Yuletide Card.  By actually telephoning them (not a text, nor an email), but by actually phoning them to hear their voice.  Or by dropping by at their place, for a drink, or to bring them a small gift as a token of your appreciation for what they have done for your this year.  A little cheer goes along way!

When a friend is closer than the others, invite he or she over for the ‘Reveillon’.  The Reveillon, is a midnight meal on Yuletide Eve that is served at midnight; with the full trimmings.  During the daytime, at Yuletide, stay home with your family, but be sure to have enough booze in the house for when family and friends come over to remind you that you are part of their close circle of friends and family.  And be sure to not forget to invite them to drop by that day 🙂

If you have a friend who prefers to isolate themselves that day, be sure to take an hour out of your busy celebrating to go and be with them for a little while.  You never know, you may save their life that day…

When you have too many friends at Yuletide

When you have too many friends at Yuletide, it gets problematic.  The Yuletide Season stirs-up a lot of emotions.  We are often reminded, at Yuletide, of both the bad and the good in people we may call ‘friends’.

Yuletide makes us want to take a personal inventory of ourselves; of how we have led our life throughout this past year, and with who we hanged-out with.  It is that time of the year, when we revise some of our friendships.  This is most likely, that time of the year when you come to realise you have made some false friends.

False Friends need to go

False Friends need to go because they are as a poison to us.  They do not weave magic in our lives.  They do not make us shine by caring about us that much at all, when you think of it.

Yuletide is the perfect time to see your false friends just as they are.  False friends are those who backstab you; who put you under the bus.  They use you, and want to be used by you.

These are the types of people who place no value upon a true friendship with you.  They do not think you lovable, capable, and incomparable.  As far as you are concerned, they do not think you worthy of being that close a friend to them.

Drop, and let go of such bad friends.  This will permit you to focus on your true friends come Yuletide.  You will then find you have more time for true friends.

When you are with a true friend, you share a mutual understanding of each other.  You are one of a pair.  You know that you will never walk alone!  A true friend gets you!  You can let your hair down around them; you can make mistakes around them.

False friends weave dark, negative threads full of discouragement, and put-downs.  They are those who are too busy to hang with you.  They are those friends who don’t even think, or are too busy to personally send you a picture of their engagement ring, or wedding pictures.  They don’t even introduce you to the people in their personal lives.  i.e. boyfriends, children, mothers, etc…  Hell, you probably don’t even know their home address…

You know what they say!  Keep your friends close, and your enemies at a distance…  False friends are those people who keep you at a distance from their life.

Let go, and drop such friends from your personal, private life, most especially at Yuletide/Christmastide Celebrations.  Instead, invite your true friends over for a drink or to share with you – your festive meal!

At Yuletide, “be with the ones who make you shine.  Who love you and really care.  Keep those and let others go”, Magical Times Empowerment Cards, the Friendship Card.

Hello, fellow Tarot Readers.  My magickal name is Evergreen.  I am the owner of Tarot Readings By Evergreen and Ravens Nest Gems.  This blog article on Christmas Magick is part of the 2015 Winter/Yule Tarot Blog Hop.  Each one of the members of this Tarot blogging group of Readers, including myself, offer the Tarot Community a Winter Celebration gift in this grouping of blog articles.

My gift to you, in celebration of Yuletide/Christmastide, is making Christmas Magick.

Christmas Magick

 

Christmas Magick doesn’t cost anything at all.  It is the perfect kind of magick both for the poor and the rich alike – because it is free!

What the Angel of Kindness stands for, is Christmas Magick.  His place is at the top of the Tree because it is a benevolent Angel proclaiming joy to the world.  This Angel proclaims that peace is here, kindness is restored!

In place of the Angel of Kindness, some people prefer a Star at the top of their tree.  The Christmas Star represents ‘light and guidance’ restored.  Because of this Star, we now can orient ourselves in this physical world.

What is the Magick of Christmas, you may ask.  When your dreams have been shattered, the Magick of Christmas is to make you whole again!  In turn, you make whole again those with broken dreams.  With a simple act of kindness coming from your heart, given with Love, you lift the hearts of those who are truly lonely at Christmastide.

Let the Magick of Yuletide touch your heart.  Make this Season Bright for those around you who are miserable.  When you do this, good cheer then indeed spreads all around you!  Click on The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year, to listen to Andy Williams as he sings this cheerful traditional Christmastide magical song.

True origin of Christmastide

True origin of Christmastide looks at where the term ‘Christmas Magick’ came from.  It should come as no surprise that the old Keltic-Germanic Peoples first celebrated Christmas as Yuletide.   Yuletide and its associated Magic felt beautiful to the Christian conquerors.  So, they decided it was a good thing to incorporate this pagan belief and magical practice into the Christian religious rituals, practice, and faith.  Hence, Christianity practices to this day, an esoteric form of magic called ‘Christmastide.’  A Christmas, with a Christmas Tree and magick referred to by Christians as “the Magick of Christmas!”

What is Christmastide

 

Christmas Magick
Christmas Magick
The Hermit, TDM

What is Christmastide?  Christmastide itself is a great event the old Keltic Peoples celebrated each year during Winter time.  We have kept up this Winter tradition, and people throughout the world have made it their own.  Where there is a Christian Kelt, there is Christmastide!

The old Kelts migrated into what is now called Germany, France, Denmark, and Sweden.  As it was back then for them, it is still traditional today for them to celebrate the Winter Season.  Yuletide is also known as the ‘celebration of the Lights.’

Used to be, these Peoples would bring Evergreen Trees into their houses at the Winter Celebration of Yuletide.  They would place candles on the branches of their Evergreen trees – so to see the movements in the shadows about them.  They believed that at night, witches would come to their homes during the long nights of the Winter Season.  That those Witches would move about in the darkness casting a dark, sad feeling and emotions upon them.  The result of this action against them would cause gloom, dread, and misery to invade their homes, families, friends, communities, and lands.

Today, of course, modern Christmas Tree lights are put in the tree instead of lit candles.  Some might call that old tradition of the Lights, but an old superstitious belief.   However, old superstitions are often well rooted in reality and truth.

In other words, in imitation magick, the lights represent the lit candles used to ward off the evil magic of the dark Crones. The Peoples believed that Dark Crones would go to their houses at the Witching hour to conjure up demons upon the inhabitants of the houses.  Those evil spirits were the spirits of both physical and spiritual slavery.

However, the Keltic-Germanic Peoples (of which I am a descendant) were magical thinking Peoples.   To ward off the deep state of depression cast upon them by the old Witches, they would place a lit candle in the window.  A lit candle placed in a window was so to throw a spiritual light upon the dark spirits of the Witching Hour.  In esoteric terms, to ‘cast light’ pertains to the ‘discernment of the spirits.’

Even if you can read about candle magic or the discernment of the spirits in books, this is not something I initially learned from a book.  Another way of saying ‘Christian Witches’ is to say ‘esoteric.’  My adoption mother’s cousin was the Mother Superior of the orphanage I was placed in as a newborn.  Before directing that orphanage, she was the Mother Superior of the same Convent/boarding school for girls – that my adoption mother and her sisters went to after the death of their mother.  In other words, Mother Superior was my adoption grandmother’s cousin (by their grandmother).  We are Breton Witches, descendants of the Breton Witches of Bretagne in France.  My adoption mother’s maiden name (may she rest in peace) was “Breton.”

After the death of her cousin, Mother Superior took my grandmother’s daughters under her wing so to personally see to their education.  When I was nine years old, Mother Superior (Sister Therese) told my mother to make sure that I would get the very same esoteric knowledge she had given to her.  After all, said Mother Superior, the acorn never falls far from the tree.

My esoteric knowledge of the Tarot and Oracle Cards was passed down from Sister Therese and my grandmother’s grandmother.  Then from Sister Therese down to my adoption mother.  And then from my adoption mother to me.  Sister Therese taught many others also; even the Mother Superior of the grade school I went attended.  That Mother Superior also taught all of the members of my adoption mother’s coven.

You know what they say!  They say, sometimes you just have to be smarter than the average bear.  The old Keltic-Germanic Peoples decided to place candles on tree branches and windows, so to better see and ward off the spirits of dark moods.  Instead of feeling depressed, they were of good cheer during the Winter Season.  Their being of good cheer, caused them to feel like singing and dancing, and sharing their good fortune as a gesture of kindness towards each other.

Hence, the Yuletide Celebration!  The spirit of merry-making and kindness would enter the house at night! For us Breton’s, it is ‘la joie de vivre’ (the joy of being alive and of being free).  It is the freedom from misery itself!  (Misery is another way of saying slavery).

Kindness Magick

 

Kindness Magick is the Magick of “Love” found only through acts of kindness.  It replaces dark, gloomy feelings with those of feelings found only in the light (positive energy), and encouragement!  And it is very contagious.

Indeed, through the Act of Kindness, you change the atmosphere around you.  It becomes an environment of good cheer!  As my mother used to say, “it doesn’t take much to make a person feel whole again.”  In magickal terms, the magick of Christmas is the sharing of one’s positive energies so to lift up someone who is feeling down.

Tourtiere du Quebec

Tourtiere du Quebec is my mother’s recipe passed down to me.  It is my all-time, very favorite food at Christmastide.  You can serve me turkey and stuffing all you want; it just doesn’t feel like a Christmastide Celebration, festive meal to me if there is not ‘tourtiere’ on my plate.  In fact forget all the rest, just fill my plate with tourtiere lol…

Mom would serve it along with the Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, carrots, green beans, pickled beets, and turkey gravy over the turkey and the stuffing, and the mashed potato. Of course, I was always the only one to put Heinz Ketchup on my piece of Mom’s Tourtiere 🙂

Here is her recipe for ‘Tourtiere.’  It is my great pleasure to share it with you!  I hope you will love eating this just as much as I do!  Don’t forget to spot the kitchen magick in this recipe!

Manifesting Dreams

Manifesting Dreams is an art in itself.  Become aware of your wants and desires.  No matter what they may be, they become real.

Manifesting Dreams

Manifesting Dreams is quite simple to do really.  “Your dreams have untold energy.  Open the door and let them live.  Desires and beliefs are your power”, Jody Bergsma.

Law of Attraction

Law of Attraction means to draw to you what you think.  Most especially in our dreams, we become aware of what we truly desire!  What we truly desire, is what we really want manifested in our awake life.  And what we want is what we get in awake life…

When we dream, we draw to ourselves vibrationally.  Anything we focus on during our dreams is what we focus on; period!  This whether we want to or not.  This is why so many people come to me to have their dreams interpreted.  They dream of something, and they want to know what it means; because, they know it will happen to them at one point or another during their awake state.

During your dream, you most usually are a person looking at a scene.  You are never truly emotionally detached from what you see or what is happening to you in your dream.  You experience reactions, feelings, and thoughts.  Either you desire things, or you do not want them in your dream.  But you want to know what it means anyways, because deep down inside – you somehow know that ‘like attracts like’.  That what you stayed focused on, is what you will get in your life.

It is in the ‘manifestation’ itself, that your dream becomes real.  This is the magical key to entering that place and time when your dream becomes real.  In the magical world as well as in the world of dream interpretations, we call this phenomena ‘conscience creating’.  When Conscience Creating, you have the power to manifest your will – as it relates to your dream, into your awake reality.  That is to say, for as long as you ‘understand and know’ how to do this properly.

How to use Magical Power

How to use Magical Power in regards to what you dream about, is quite easy – really.  If you have the necessary knowledge about what you dream, then you have power!

During the dream interpretation of your dream, you are told what your dream means.  You receive direct enlightenment and guidance concerning your dream.  You are told what it means.  This, so to know and better understand your dream.  Because, once you know what your dreams means, you become empowered in such a way that you can affect change in your awake life.

With the correct knowledge and understanding about your dream, you can better manifest what you want and desire.  This in the way that your unconscious tried to tell you to do in the first place.

To have knowledge, is to have power!  Once you ‘awaken from your not knowing what the vision you saw in your dream really means’, you awaken to the knowledge of your true power!

“Cherish your visions, cherish your ideals.

Cherish the music that stirs in your heart,

the beauty that drapes your purest thoughts.

For out of them will grow all delightful conditions,

all heavenly environment – of these, if you remain true to them,

your world will at last be built”.

(By James Allen)

How to manifest your dreams

How to manifest your dreams into your awake reality, now.  You already do this all the time.  You dream at night, and during the day, or at another point in time, you realize that you had actually dreamed about it.  When this happens, you have have been successful at manifesting your dream!

Your dream is the visual manifestation of your uncensored thoughts and beliefs.  It is by your thoughts and beliefs that you create and shape your awake world.  You let your Divine Self take your thoughts and beliefs, to make them happen!

Your Divine Self

Your Divine Self is that spark of life you were made out of while still in your mother’s fallopian tube.  That is the Spark of the Divine you were born with!  It is God made manifest!  Become aware of your Divine Spark, it is truly magical!

Become aware yourself, of who you truly are.

Of how you truly feel, of what you truly think.

Become aware of how you truly react,

of what you truly decide you want.

(By Evergreen)

 

Energize your thought; believe in your own being and its own thoughts.  Believe that it is already manifested before you even get it.  Then let it go!  And let it materialize into its physical manifestation.

Then be grateful that it is already there, awaiting for you to enjoy it!  And don’t forget to be grateful for what you have already received; its manifestation into your real world.

 About Intention

About Intention explains what it really means when people tell you that “it is all in the intent”.  Down through the years, on Facebook, I have read many posts and comments saying that Magical Manifestation “is all in the intent”  Magical People are of good intention themselves when saying that.  But rarely do they ever actually, truly say what a Magical intent means exactly.  Some Witches and Magi can be cunning that way.

Your “intent” is that Divine Energy mentioned above.  It is that very Divine Manifestation of God in you.  It is that very Divine Spark of the Divine that got manifested within you – at the time of your creation within your mother’s fallopian tube.  In other words, your ‘intent’ is already within you!

‘Your Intent’ is your Divine Self.  Your Divine Energy and power (your intent), is what forms your thought, your intention.  The thought that lays at the back of your mind, come from within your subconscious mind.  Your brain takes it from there, to place it at the back of your mind, within your uncensored unconscious thoughts and dreams.  Those very thoughts are your energy and power!  They form your Chi!

Your energy and power (your Chi), is your intent.  What your intent is, is what you manifest into reality as a physical manifestation of your free will.  In other words, it is pure “Karma”.

Whatever it is  you ‘truly intend’, you truly manifest in your environment as Karma.  This, whether you did this consciously or not; positively or not.  To everything there is a cause and effect, they are always consequences to both your thoughts and actions.  “So as you sow, so shall you reap”.

Most especially at Yule/Christmas, when some Witches come in the shadow of the night to cast a spirit of depression (sadness and gloom and misery) upon you and your household.  Cast out negative intent just as much during the day as during your dreams at night.  Place a lit a candle by the window during the day and evening.

Then bring the lit candle into your bedroom when going to bed at night.  Place the lit candle upon your bedside table right before going asleep (so to ward off negative thoughts and beliefs in the scenes you dream.  In your dreams, avoid focussing upon negative scenes that evoke sadness and misery in your thinking.  Because if you do not do this, your brain will process them, sort them, and then file them away in your unconscious mind for later use.

Instead, focus on dreams of good health, prosperity, wealth, and happiness.  In your Yule/Christmas dreams, stay focused on the positive scenes, so to prosper beyond your wildest dreams.  And then when you wake up in the morning, start your day off by praising and being grateful for the blessings you are about to receive.  For they are already on their way!

They have already been manifested in the spiritual world.  All you need do, is wait for them to be manifested into the material, physical world.  Believe it, it is done!

Magical Times Cards Meaning Discernment

Magical Times Cards Meaning Discernment is about the ability to make the difference between the truth and the non-truth of your situation.  It is an empowerment card.  It comes from the Magical Times Empowerment Cards Deck by Jody Bergsma.  This Oracle Card, Discernment, is about manifesting reality when the truth may not be that apparent at first glance!

 

Magical Times Cards Meaning Discernment
Magical Times Cards Meaning Discernment

 

Magical Times Cards Meaning Discernment

 

Discernment is seeing life as it truly is; it is the ability to know the truth even when truth is not that apparent.  Deep down, we know what is real and what is not.  No matter the situation we are in, making the difference magically opens the windows and the doors of our reality; it lets in the fresh air of the wonderful new possibilities!

 

Ability to know the truth

Ability to know the truth, is wonderful magic in itself!  This ability is innate within the average person.  It makes the mind of the average person a wonderful place indeed!

Within our mind, we have the faculty to perceive our reality.  In other words, we have the ability to reason things out and to judge well what is going on around us.

We can always choose to not use our mind for discerning a person’s character and spirit.  Some people would rather keep their eyes closed to their truth.  Magical Times Cards Meaning Discernment is to help empower you out there in the world.  The world is a cruel place at times, we can decide to ignore that part of it.  However, putting on blinders has consequences.

Deep sense of knowing

Deep sense of knowing!  A person’s mind can be fooled into misunderstanding the world around them.  We can trust in the fact that some people do not have a stake in telling us the truth.  This is when our deep sense of knowing (discernment) kicks in.

Lets say that we need to know the correct time of day.  We ask someone what time it is.  We ask this because we expect him or her to tell us the truth about the correct time.  Knowing the correct time could make or break the plans we have made for today.

Fortunately, deep down inside of our brain, we have a fair idea of what time it is anyways.  Within the mind, we have a sense of deep knowing about time…We only ask in the first place, for preciseness sake.  We are not that easily fooled.

When we ask someone for help, we are placing ourselves at his or her mercy – so to speak.  We would expect that person to be fair and honest with us.  We would not expect the person to hand us a snake instead of their good help.

It may be that somebody can fool us about the correct time of day.  However, thinking back on it, we usually realize that we had known all along that they would fool us about it.  We had intuitively known all along, deep inside, that they could not be trusted.

Guided by our sense of knowing

Guided by our sense of knowing?  Yes!  We feel empowered when we let ourselves be guided by our sense  knowing!

Since we were just seven years old (ish), our faculty of discernment was already fully developed.  By then, we had already started to depend on our own ‘inner sense of deep knowing’.  We could already reason things out, and judge people by their character.  We made the difference between right from wrong; between truth from a lie; between trusting certain people but not some others.

Today, at our age, the only difference is that we have more experience with judging people by their stripes.  We understand that they do exist, and so do the situations they bring to our lives.  We can reason things out well enough!  After all, what quacks like a duck, walks like a duck, is a duck!

Discernment Affirmation

“Today I acknowledge my ability to know the truth even when it is hidden.  I will listen to my heart and let my deeper knowing guide me.  I will let go of the pointless dramas that drain me and embrace the things that make me truly happy.  I will not be fooled.  I will be real, I will be right, and I will be glad”.
