Happy Friday everyone! I thank you for being here this morning. I went to bed last night and woke again this morning wanting to spend quiet time in sacred space. First though….WELCOME HOME ASMI!!!!!
We brought Asmi home yesterday afternoon! Asmi gently rode in the chariot that she came into the vet in the day before (our bright and cheery and ever faithful Dozer yellow Jeep Wrangler…AKA, our transport vehicle 😊) to her new life in Sanctuary at Santuario de Karuna her new home and ate some dinner, sniffed around a bit and then she walked right into her house and went night night, We said a prayer of thanks for how very blessed we are. In the middle of the night, in my bare feet, I went outside to check on her and she was cozy in her house and being protected by the bears. This morning, like it was Christmas morning as we waited for her to rise, so we could go out and greet her! We were all so happy! Asmi slurped her breakfast down with a huge smile across her beautiful piggy face! Asmi is home.
Asmi means “I am”.
Thank you to each and every prayer you sent. Thank you for the love and the donations. My work on her began this morning and will be intense, yet slow and gentle and very frequent. Several slow and loving times a day…one day at time.
If you all wouldn’t mind joining hands with me and holding space in your heart for this beautiful being who began her new life when she was picked up as a stray…loved and nurtured by animal control during her five day hold…vetted with the most loving, accommodating and healing vet care by Western Trails Veterinary Hospital…generously loved and supported by all of you, and safely transported to her forever home at Santuario de Karuna yesterday…Please say it with me and with all of your heart…”We love you Asmi! Welcome home baby girl! Welcome home! You can follow Asmi’s journey on Facebook at Santuario de Karuna. We would love to have you come on over and give us a like, if you like!
Sometimes inside myself I get lost. Maybe it’s because I wander aimlessly and deliberately all at the same time. I know the depths of the deep inside myself…the waters to lie in and the waters raging, and for me those waters have always been one in the same. I have seldom ventured out since being in felt more compelling…more real and more honest than being outside. Being lost inside forced me outside to find myself. Now I chose to go back in. For a visit? Maybe. For reflection? For sure. To be thankful I ventured out? For a visit, yes. Forever? For now I feel a turning inward and a circle getting smaller. I feel my need to know quest to trust dissipate as I’ve come to accept that I cannot know or trust. Not now. I cannot and so I do not.
My mind swirls slower and my heart rate slows. I steady my breathing and I close my eyes. Hands upon my chest and with all of my love…I breathe out that which does not serve me. I breathe in all of your love. I immerse myself in Rumi and I honor my commitments. Morning and evening I religiously repeat this mantra…”Every day, in every way, I am getting better and better.” It helps me and I am thankful.
This picture was hanging on the wall in a vets office today when we walked Precious home. I ask each of you to pause for a brief moment and send Precious’ Mom and Step-Mom Eileen all of your love tonight. We love you Precious. Run free baby girl. Run free. Thank you for how you loved and trusted us to be with you on your final journey today. Please come and visit often, okay?
My appointments have been amazing! My heart and my intentions have been met with truths. I have learned so much! Thank you to everyone who scheduled and showed up and paid me to do what I do! Your faith in me humbles me and I thank you, with all of my heart!
With that, I bid you all goodnight. Tomorrow is an unplug from all things…enjoy my solitude and my beautiful girl and our beautiful Sanctuary kind of day. I’m Blogging, of course, and otherwise going offline until Saturday morning, when I re-emerge for my beloved clients. Have beautiful evening! I love you! Goodnight.😴
