Delightfully Lovely Summer

It's lavender season on Planet Joy! Lavender is lovely all year round, especially so when in season. I'll be stitching up some lavender bay sachets with the organic lavender and bay leaves that I cultivate in my garden in the Pacific Northwest. I've got some white dupionni silk and colorful brocade to stitch up into sachets that you can reserve now on Etsy!

While we're on the subject of fun summer happenings, I've been enjoying some outdoor renewal by the River. A day trip at the confluence of the Rogue and Umpqua Rivers at the Rogue Elk Campground was very relaxing! 
Rogue River in Trail, Oregon
The charming old Rogue Elk Hotel is abandoned and is up for sale, it requires so much work, but it has so much potential. I love the wrap around porch! I hope you are having a good summer, share your adventures with me with a comment below, I'd love to know what you're up to!

PS. Scoot over to Facebook if you want in on my July ruana sale!

Divine Order and Grace

Divine order and grace bring miracles beyond our imagination. So here’s some mantras of Divine intercession on a number of topics. I've been told the mantras reliably elicit magic, expansion, and possibility when done with a sincere heart or even partially open mind. These intercession mantras go beyond affirmations; they will invoke the highest divine potential and truly bypass the conditioning and repetitive constraints of the ego.
It's recommended to practice doing whichever ones you need for at least twenty-one days to help the mind recalibrate. Even if you are skeptical, why not experiment?
1. When you need to find work:
Dear Divine, you know all my talents and abilities, even ones that are hidden from me. You know my financial needs as well. I now call you into my work life, knowing that the right work and career is already selected. I’ll be shown the right actions to take at the right time.
2. To be open to love and relationships:
The perfect partner is already selected. He or she is arriving in the right way at the right time. I am so grateful to receive him or her.
3. When you're beating yourself up:
Change me Divine Beloved into one who knows my own value and worthiness. Let me see myself as you see me.
4. When something isn’t happening as fast as your mind thinks it should:
Trust in Right Timing
My life is unfolding in Divine timing. All delays are beneficial. I’m always at the right place at the right time.
5. When you’re giving a lot and don’t feel worthy of receiving from others:

Change me Divine Beloved into one who can easily receive. Let me feel deserving of the help and love of others. Inundate me with a sense of worthiness.
6. When you’re stressed about travel:

Let every aspect of this trip unfold in harmony. May Divine order arrange and handle every detail . The right flights, lodging, and all else are already selected and I’ll be guided easily. I’ll follow the leads as they are shown.
7. When you know you wish to be of service:

Wherever I can be a force of love, please guide me. Take me wherever you wish me to go. Let me do your bidding.
8. When you're deciding whether to go somewhere or do something:

Please show me if You wish me to go. If you do, please bring a sign, and a miracle that shows Your Divine Will in this matter and gives clear direction. And if for some reason I’m about to head the wrong way, please STOP me!
9. When you're unclear about what’s next:

My perfect new path is already selected and will arrive at the right time. I’ll be shown the steps to receive it.
10. When you have fears of aging or loss:
I am one with the unlimited Divine, beyond all seeming restrictions of age. My whole being is filled with joy, energy and beauty, and is a vessel for the Universal Shakti. I reside in oneness with this Divine joy.
11. When you’re completely overwhelmed by ANYTHING at all:

Divine beloved, Change me into one who knows how to do this! Open me to all your help and assistance, work through me, oh Great Spirit. Let me be a calm, tranquil vessel for your love.
These mantras open the way for the unimpeded Divine to enter with a plan far beyond the manipulations and machinations of the ego and open us to every form of possibility, expansion and delight.
