My kids rarely get ill. Wait, I seem to be saying that a lot this year. Alright, pre-2012 they rarely got ill. This year the germs have taken up residence in the Robin's Nest (the Robinett's house). I have gone through many cans of Lysol and several Mr. Clean cleaners. Without the deep freeze that we normally get in Michigan, I fear that the viruses and bugs are not just strong, but have donned capes and little swords. I tried to lock the kids in their rooms, but that isn't fair, they still need to come out at least to do their chores (joking)!! So as I attempted to duck the influenza, I read a couple books (as I was telling Madelyn - it takes me about three hours to read about 400 pages), played Words With Friends, got caught up on my emails, harassed friends on Facebook, and watched Youtube. From Oprah's Life Class to Wicked, I tried to inundate myself with positive messages. When my family is sick, I tend to sponge the energy into my being and become teary and sad, so I bubbled myself off, did a lot of meditating where I allowed the 'rain' to wash over my energy field, and fought the blues with happy. As I was doing that, I came across a video from Britain's "America's Got Talent". Charlotte, a 15 year old pop singer, teamed up with a disheveled and shy 17 year old Jonathan. He spoke of how his size has always made him try to blend into the background, while Charlotte spoke of how she was his protector. Well, I won't ruin it - you have to watch for yourself.
Magick comes in all shapes, sizes and forms and most of all, it comes from within.
