Welcome back! Another week has breezed by… What’s new in your corner of the world?
I’ve been trying to take it easy and getting out and about. For me, Autumn feels like the perfect time to visit museums. Which is what I’ve been doing, last week I visited Historic Richmondtown in Staten Island. And on my way back, once we got off the ferry, my urban explorer( my youngest daughter) and I decided we were going to visit the new World Trade Center. I hadn’t been inside of the WTC since September 9, 2001. And as for my girl, she wasn’t even born yet…lol, She only knows of 9/11 through school, tv, books… the internet…
I was curious to see the what it looked like inside as opposed to the last time I was there. As I said in previous posts, my mother worked there in Tower 2 on the 77th floor for most of my young life until 1993. So I have lots of memories about how it looked inside, the elevators, her office, the concourse, the surrounding areas…everything. I admit I had a moment of cognitive dissonance, it was a bizarre feeling. The place was bustling, full of people going here and there. One woman asked me where to find the PATH train. So that wasn’t unusual, It was a Twilight Zone moment. I guess I was thinking of the former buildings and what it looked like then. Nothing remains, everything is different. Except for one part, the entrance to the “E” train station, there’s a sign that shows once you exit what the tiny vestibule looked like back in time. The last time I was at this subway station, it was boarded up. And you had to exit unto the street instead of going right into the WTC. I snapped this pic…
I love history, especially about my city, so for this week’s adventure, we are heading to the Museum of the City of New York. I’ve never been there before, so it should be interesting. What I am trying to say here is that we can choose to dwell in the past. Or we can move forward. The past contains the memories that dwell in our hearts. But we must allow for the new things to enter when we move forward. I hope this resonates for you in some way.
Choose a word and then scroll down for your reveal.

Totem Tuesdays~ Bat
* For this month, the animals that are considered spooky( in honor of Halloween) will be included in this blog.*
Bat Spirit Animal Meaning
Bats are symbols of communication because they are highly sociable and have strong family bonds. They are nurturing, highly verbal, use touch and are sensitive to members from their group. This strong bond allows them to teach us how to enhance our level of communication and strengthen our bonds with family and friends. Bats have great perceptive skills, always show the truth in dreams and symbolize rebirth as they spread their wings at dusk from the womb of Mother Earth.
Below are some of the many meanings of bats as spirit animals.
- Inner Depth
- See through ambiguity
- Dive straight to the truth of matters
- Shamanic death and rebirth
- Pollination of new ideas
- Viewing past lives
- Understanding grief
- The use of vibrational sound
- Ability to observe unseen
- Sensitivity to environmental or spiritual energy
- Truth in dreams
- Psychic Power
- Astral Travel
- Changes for better
- Moon magic
- Guardian of the night (spiritanimal.info)
If you chose Halloween~ Aura/Observation
Always ask the question, “Is this for my highest good?“, You will witness something important. Become more aware of signs and symbols that Spirit brings you. Try to see the good in others. You have a gift of seeing and sensing auras.
As I take a look around,
Things are quite what I once found.
The veil has lifted, eyes are bright,
Observing all with my new sight.
Something new to try~ Morning Loving Kindness Meditation
Because when you start the day feeling whole and centered, you tend to carry this mindset into everything you do and every conversation you have. This is especially helpful when you are forced to work through a difficult life situation or deal with difficult relationships.
Although you can’t change every situation or relationship you’re involved in, you can always change your response to them. And that’s where a morning loving-kindness meditation works wonders! This is how it works:
Read through these statements silently (or out loud) to yourself:
May I be happy
May I be healthy
May I be safe
May I be at ease
May I be loved
Then read it again at least two more times. Let it sink in.
Now use someone you love (perhaps your mom) as the subject:
*these are examples, you may choose whomever you wish.*
May my mom be happy
May my mom be healthy
May my mom be safe
May my mom be at ease
May my mom be loved
Again, let it sink in. Embrace these statements. Visualize them.
Now, for the hard part. Use someone you have a difficult relationship with as the subject (let’s say his name is Joe).
May Joe be happy
May Joe be healthy
May Joe be safe
May Joe be at ease
May Joe be loved
Remember, what you focus on you see more of in your life. (from marcandangel.com)
If you chose Harvest~ Crystal Ball/Clarity
Be conscious of every word you speak and each thought you think. Concentrate on honing your own special talents and interests. A clear sign will present itself in answer to your question. Be sure to keep on full alert.
In order for me to clearly see,
With truth, love, and clarity.
The answers that reveal the ALL,
I focus on the crystal ball.
