StarFire Teja’s StarFire Friday Blessing: May the Flowers Bring You Joy

 

May you appreciate the seasons of your life.

May you say yes to the light in many forms: sunlight, starlight, crystal light, and fireworks light.

May your weekend be blessed with enchanted moments.

May the flowers bring you joy.

 

As the season turns to muggy and buggy, I mean Summer, here in Indiana, I am appreciating the lightning bugs and the orange lilies blooming in many of the yards. This Summer I am looking forward to watching the fireworks over the river, and to eating lots of fresh corn on the cob!

What are you looking forward to in the coming months?

 

Happy Summer Solstice
(to everyone in the Northern Hemisphere!)

(And Happy Winter Solstice
to those in the Southern Hemisphere!)

How Do You Define Blessings?

Happy “SUN” day dear readers!

Just a short little post to share a quote from my next book, Reaching for Orange: Practices, Visualizations, & Blessings to Help You Happy Up Your Life:

“Blessings can be vibrant transmissions of living consciousness.”

I also want to share something amazing that happened yesterday. After I had already selected this sunshine photo for today’s post, Andrea of The Hummingbird Journal’s Blog nominated me for “The Sunshine Blogger Award.”
I will be writing a post for that soon! 🙂

How do you define blessings?

Gratitude That Life Is Not Hard Now

Last night I was writing in my journal, and I spontaneously wrote a gratitude list which included good food, shelter, hot showers, good drinking water, good coffee, a nice room, good people, doing what I love, and following my passions.

Next I wrote, “I’m feeling wealthy, satisfied, and content. Despite all my body’s aches and pains, I am in a comfortable living situation, I am taken care of, I can write and serve others and go for walks in the nice neighborhood. Even though life has felt hard for a long time, it is not hard now. Through the generosity of others, God is providing.”

In April I added a Gratitude~Up community page to this website. Recently a few close friends shared that they do not feel comfortable sharing their gratitude lists publicly. I respect their need for privacy, and I understand if you feel the same way. However, if you would like to have your gratitude list witnessed by others, please feel free to add yours to the Gratitude~Up page.

Are you feeling grateful today?

I hope that your life is not feeling hard now, but if it is, then I send you healing energies and strength to help you cope until your life shifts into a more comfortable phase.

I hope this post was helpful to you in some way.

Thank you for reading the StarFire Teja Blog!

Will You Choose Burial or Cremation?

I am just beginning to read a fascinating book called Grave Matters: A Journey Through the Modern Funeral Industry to a Natural Way of Burial* by Mark Harris.

I am excited to learn about green burials. Have you heard of natural burial?

I always thought that I would be buried, but then recently I was beginning to wonder about the cremation option. However, after only reading the preface of this book I’ve decided to stick with being buried. I will share more about this topic in a future post… after I finish reading this book!

What about you, will you choose burial or cremation?
