“Walk with me, O my soul,
Walk into the white light of the Moon,
Where my loved ones cannot follow
Nor I return.
I’ll charter unknown galaxies,
With neither map nor guide,
Save you, O my soul,
And the long-gone voices of my ancestors.
Their faces have no flesh,
Nor eyes to see nor lips to speak,
I hear them, O my soul, though I listen not
To their call.
Until I loosen the bonds of love,
I cannot drift along a moonbeams path,
Nor can I breach the veil beyond
Where you, O my soul, are free.”
Poem by Judy Croome
Color of the day: Indigo
Indigo is the color of the deep midnight sky. It can have a negative effect when used during a depressed state, because it will deepen the mood. Indigo symbolizes a mystical borderland of wisdom, self-mastery and spiritual realization. While blue is the color of communication with others, indigo turns the blue inward, to increase personal thought, profound insights, and instant understandings. While blue can be fast, Indigo is almost instantaneous. Inventors use indigo skills for inspirations that seem to 'come out of the blue'.

Today’s Stone Tidbit: BLUE STONES: blue is the color of the ocean, of sleep and of twilight. Blue is ruled by the element of water and the Planet Neptune. These are receptive stones and promote peace. Holding a blue stone or gazing at it by a soft light, calms the emotions. Wearing a blue stone while sleeping will help halt nightmares and give you a peace sleep. They are worn to promote healing and are sometimes held to reduce or remove pain from the body. Wear blue stone if you are in the need of purification. (Scott Cunningham)
It comes in many guises; here death comes psychologically speaking rather than the physical death.
If you want to move past something in your life, you must pass through death. Death holds rewards, for these things may no longer be useful in your life and to move on past it may and could bring new energy and life.
The message of Death is that spiritual growth brings pain and it isn’t easy to let go of certain behaviors, beliefs or even people in your current path.
To endeavor is not without its rewards, what is to come must be faced in order to grow.
Be aware of the fear of change, letting go or out-moded ideas and that fear of change can lead to stagnation which in the longer run can be more spiritually harmful and painful than a clean death
