beginning of Spring, Easter celebrations. Girl Scouts selling cookies, the Iditarod Race, Return the Borrowed
Books week (is this you?), Spiritual Wellness month, just to name a few items that come to mind. Earth
is actually on April 22nd, however I have included some events that help us look at healthier choices
for us and Planet Earth. I have also included some references to madness and some uplifting ideas and some ideas to
get you off the couch!
But the launch of my new
product dominates the scene. Coming in March are Reiki-infused Aromatherapy Eye Pillows featuring special
pockets for crystals. Not only do you get the wonderful aroma of sage and lavender, but lapis lazuli beads and
quartz crystals are included. Great for yoga enthusiasts and meditators and anyone who wants to spend time to
relax and heal. Thanks to my professional seamstress, my wonderful web goddess and my guides and angels for
pushing me ahead with this project. A formal announcement is forthcoming.
This month’s tips –
Get a Kroger Senior card (over 55) and receive a 10% discount on Kroger-brand items. Also if you drink coffee,
ask for a card at Saxby’s and receive the 10th drink free (on the way to/from class, it’s easy
to be tempted by a café latte). Another recent discovery – Metrocrest ReSale www.metrocrestresale.com(supporting families in need) has a Senior Day on Tuesdays, located Midway/Trinity

Bumps in the road!
Are you experiencing problems, issues, challenges? You are not alone. As I
look around me I see transitions, delusions, illusions. I am seeing more sickness and death, people feeling
depressed, and sometimes overwhelm. Not to sound gloomy, but these challenges demand that we look within for
spiritual strength, otherwise how can we overcome these so-called bumps in the road? (Even politicians mention
such bumps, but I wonder if their approach is the one to take!).
I had a few little bumps last month when things cropped up – like my cell
phone going way over minutes, the digital camera dying, the crown for the broken tooth, etc. – nothing
unsolvable, nevertheless, bumps that stopped forward progress on other projects. All these little things added
up in time and energy, stuff that had to be taken care of. After this period of time, it was easier for me to
move on and feel grateful that I have the freedom to do as I please (within reason!!!), create what I want, etc.
It could have been a lot worse, I could have got down on myself, my self-talk could have immobilized me, I could
have bored all my friends with the down-on-my-luck stories.
So what is my advice? I always suggest reaching out to family and friends.
Plus daily clearing (putting up those protective shields, using techniques to clear out the yucky energy that we
pick up at the local chaotic supermarket, the negative vibes at the doctor’s office, the world news that
promotes fear, etc. etc.) If you need help in this area, please ask me.

contains codes of awakening, every page has concepts to ponder. Written in the late 90’s (before its time?), just appropriate for the times we find

“We understand the
corruption of corporations and politicians. We see the desolation and rape of Earth, the pollution, the mass
extinction of plants and animals. We can see the root cause of humanity’s filth and decay. Yet, who are we to
question? We are the spiritually aware, the freedom-thinkers and imaginative artists who cling to the truth, who
seek the truth and persevere. No, we are not mad or insane. The anger we sense, we change to
Yet we are reminded
again and again that fear and separation are the destroyers. In the shadow lurk the enemy, dark and treacherous.

Remember the words
of Dr. Joe Dispenza www.drjoedispenza.com
in “What The Bleep….?” http://www.whatthebleep.com/create/
"I wake up in the
morning and I consciously create my day the way I want it to happen. Now sometimes, because my mind is examining
all the things that I need to get done, it takes me a little bit to settle down and get to the point of where
I'm actually intentionally creating my day. But here's the thing: When I create my day and out of nowhere little
things happen that are so unexplainable, I know that they are the process or the result of my creation. And the
more I do that, the more I build a neural net in my brain that I accept that that's possible. (This) gives me
the power and the incentive to do it the next day.”
There is more on the
website, but this is a start. What a significant piece of information. (I know this is a repeat for old Antics
readers, but I love this quote.)

As a reminder, we change clocks on March 10th, Mercury goes
direct on March 17th, the first day of Spring is March 20th, and Easter is
celebrated at the end of March. Happy Easter to everyone. Although it seems that “life” is zooming
past us, it is important to “live in the moment” and savor every second. Are you meditating? Do you
delight in the silence? Aromatherapy eye pillows can assist you in de-stressing and relaxing,
please ask me for details. If you are having trouble being grounded or feel life is a whirlwind or
that you feel hopeless about some things, or if you just feel tired, do consider an energy
balancing appointment. I am available days, some evenings and weekends.
I hope that you have found the current Antics of interest and that it
has triggered some good memories. As we observe nature around us, as March heralds new beginnings
and new life, let’s be grateful to Mother Earth and give her love and respect. Have a wonderful
