Celebrating manicartist89’s OneYear Anniversary :)) Yoohoo!!

Wow! Hard to believe it has already been one year, since I first launched manicartist89; Time sure went by incredibly fast. 

Since this (and all subsequent Anniversaries) will fall just to the side of the New Year, I’ll begin a Tradition Online, which I’ve been using for myself nearly 20 years or more  

You see, the Traditionally-established custom of “New Years Resolutions” is, in my way of Knowings, an Insidiously Destructive and Self-Defeating Practice, both Psychologically and Pathologically. 

Over twenty years ago–recognizing its destructiveness–I began a new Tradition, which has served me quite well; rather than being Self-defeating and Deflating, my Practice is Uplifting, Heart-Warming, Encouraging, Strengthening…, all the Good Stuff the other one lacks.

On New Year’s Eve:

  •  I Cleanse both my Physical, Spiritual and Ambiental Space, through Prayer, Incense Burning and Cleansing Body, Mind, and Home;
  • Once that’s done, my Spirit ready: I pick up my Journal, write a few Introductory Comments; I
  • Do a Mental Self-Assessment of the past year’s Successes, struggles, failures, and Overcoming Adversity (the latter being a really important one to acknowledge), Focusing Primarily on How Miraculous a Life this is, I’m experiencing–Listing only the Positive, Growth-Promoting, Successes, large and small;
  • I pick 10 of the Most Important and Meaningful, Perenially-Lasting Ones, List them one by one, with a one-liner commentary;
  • Re-Read them, Bless them, in Gratitude, Release them onto the Journal’s Page(s), all I’ve Victoriously Overcame, or (against all Odds), have Accomplished;
  • After that, I either Meditate for a short while, and/or pick-up my “Runes,” and do a Spread with a Simple, never-changing    

    Question: “What are the Aspects of the one or two most Salient, Important, Significant, or Paradigm-Shifting things, coming up in the Year beginning just now?”

    I then, insert my Right Hand inside the Bag , as I Shake it, to ensure the Runes Stones are well mixed, I pay attention to the ones remaining on my palm–usually between 1 and 3 stones; (over the years, I’ve come to comprehend there are no such things as “true” randomness, nor “coincidences,”only the Universe’s means of Guiding us, one Epiphany at a time–and from my Personal Experience, I’ve come to Learn much about the “Meaning of Life”-stuff, we all grapple with, from time to time, simply through this yearly practice. 

The following year, I re-read the Runes info, from the Previous year, and am always floored by their accuracy, though every New Year’s spread appears cryptic and/or incomprehensible the day they’re cast, a year later, I’m always Shocked at their accuracy. 

Thus, though it is not my place to insist everyOne should be Switching from a negative, self-esteem eroding practice such as “New Year’s Resolutions,” (or casting Runes), into the Uplifting, Encouraging, Self-Esteem-Strengthening, Positivity-building Practice, such what I call: “My Accomplishments List, for the Year 20__, “Life’s little Paradigm, guess what’ll be my First Item on this 2015 years’ List?

Manicartist89‘s 1-year Anniversary, of course–and I have All of You Who have Liked my Posts, made comments on this or that–I’ve even Enjoyed and Learned from, the Little Private “Sparring Argument” I had with another Blogger!

    Changing Timelines! Remaining Balanced Thanks to Runes’ Unerring Guidance

    NOTE: The Following Few Posts are about Changing Timelines; Choices; Instant Karma; and such–I almost think there should be a Separate Blog just for this–but decided Not really. After all, this Site isn’t dedicated to a Single Subject Matter…, but for Many; it’s an Eclectic site.

    Email sent to my Congregation’s Reverend asking for Rides to Church (my Social Family):

    On December 10, I Rear-Ended a Ford F350 Heavy Duty pickup truck, while en route to see an apartment, and totaled my car.

    Thankfully, it was bumper-to-bumper, stop’n’go traffic, during rush hour, so I was Uninjured–My car, though, was deemed a total Loss, and I’ve since been Learning the Art of going Car-less in a Car-Intensive Culture, w/ bad Mass Transit to boot.

    This is Why you haven’t seen me at Church for two weeks!

    Overall, December 2014‘s been a Horrendously-Challenging Month for me!

    My Spirituality, and my Guides‘ constant Companionship–as well as the Guidance from my Runes, and Healing Balls* sent to me through my Good Friend, and fellow Reiki Healer “Kate*”–are the ONLY THINGS which have Kept Me from Falling Apart.

    Here is the Runes Spread I got the night before meeting with the Insurance Adjuster the following morning. (a note, by this time I was Still in the “Stage 3” of the Mourning Process, i.e.: “1. Disbelief Loss was Real; 2. Anger; 3. Trying to Bargain; etc.” Using the Bloom System, I asked my Higher Self: “What are the Aspects of Maxie being Repairable, or truly Totaled?” (I got 3 Stones, then my Guides strongly suggested I needed one more, so I Did–Drawing Dagaz, (or Gateway)/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/090/59084046/files/2014/12/img_2145-0.jpgPhoto cc – Copyleft 2014, Reproduction Permitted, (preferably with (Generalized) Interpretation of Stones’ Meanings), Clarisse L Dodge, York, Pennsylvania, USA

    Problem Is: I’m Missing being Physically There, at The Chapel, Hearing the Inspired Speeches, Singing the “Peace Song,” Hugging…, Visiting w/ Friends.

    I’ve reached out to some Friends, through Texting, or email, but have Yet To Find A Ride, from York. To The Sunday Services.
    * Healing Balls – Healing Reiki Energy Balls sent remotely, with the Intent for a particular purpose. (For those with Scientific Mindsets: See: Principles of Quantum Physics/Math/Mechanics, and String Theory. A good Primer is Dr. Brian Greene’s PBS 3-Part Series, “The Elegant Universe”);
    * “Kate,” Ficticious Name for a Very Real, and Great Friend.
