For your consideration……

Every now and then go away,

have a little relaxation, for when you come back

to your work your judgement will be surer;

since to remain constantly at work

will cause you to lose power of judgement….

Go some distance away

because the work appears smaller and more of it

can be taken in at a glance,

and a lack of harmony or proportion is

more readily seen.

Leonardo Da Vinci

Yes, today’s message is about relaxing. But more specifically we are being reminded that we can always stop, take a breath, take a step back and look with fresh eyes and hear with fresh ears.

Just like when we are looking for something we have dropped, we often change positions and look from a different angle. So to if we have a problem or are looking for a creative idea, a change of position can be helpful. It doesn’t have to be a big change. It can be just a little shift forward, backward or a little left or right. It can be taking a day off or going on vacation but it can also be just pausing and taking in a couple deep breaths.

And even more specifically we are reminded today that we can always call on Archangels Gabriel when we need help communicating or finding creative solutions. We are not alone. We are never alone. That is the HOPE. And so it is.


Bit by bit, piece by piece, HOPE by HOPE action steps anyone can take…..

-Meditate. Relax.

-Drink lots of water.

-Get outdoors and take in at least 10 deep breaths. Feel them.

-Give up the desired outcome. Ask for the highest solution instead.
