EASTWARD SOUTHERN WESTWARD NORTHERN BOUND

Audio'Siyo or Osiyo [Hello in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, IT'S YOUR DECISION

Yesterday (Friday) my sister "Cis" and I headed southward and then eastward bound to Cherokee, North Carolina from St. Louis on that fun-filled 10-hour drive. I had every intention of updating your Daily Horoscopes on the road but then I forgot my USB cable and after my battery ran out in the car, uploading the horoscopes was not in the Universal timeline so I succumbed to the process of spending 10 hours with my sister singing to songs on the radio.

Late tonight "mama bear" and I will leave on a coach bus tonight with twenty-five other women from Cherokee and head westward, then northward bound to Rapid City, South Dakota for the Annual NAIWA Conference. NAIWA is the Native American Indian Women's Association. How do you become a member? You have to be an enrolled member of a native american Indian tribe. During the conference we discuss issues facing our tribes and native people. During the opening ceremony we all dress in our tribal clothing which is a very beautiful sight. As we come back through St. Louis on the way back to Cherokee, I'll be stepping off the bus as the rest of the women continue on back to Cherokee.

For this reason, I'm updating your Daily Horoscopes for the entire week so it will be complete while I'm on the road. Still, I'm ALWAYS reachable by telephone (not e-mail since I can't stand e-mail). I will have my early morning and evenings to return phone calls and write charts. Folks, if you need something, then call because putting it off is not a resolution. Let's roll and get you taken care of quickly. I guarantee if you e-mail, you'll get an automated reply saying call me. I'm a happenin' type of gal so if you call it will not bother me a bit. This 'is' what I do and what I choose to do. I'll be in touch through Facebook and Twitter posting pictures as well. Until then, as we say in Cherokee . . .

IT'S YOUR DECISION

Audio'Siyo or Osiyo [Hello in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, THAT'S THE POWER OF LOVE

This morning's Musical DLG ™  (Download from God ™ ) was, "Your Decision" by Alice in Chains. For those of you who are new to my Daily Message page, instead of waking up to an alarm clock every morning, I wake up to a song playing in my head. It is that song that I call my Musical DLG ™  (Download from God ™ ) which stimulates my writing. As mainly a clair-audient and clair-sentient individual, my conversations with God and/or my intuition is audible. I believe that God speaks to me in the way and tone that I understand best. In the morning, this auditory message is typically through music, mostly hard rock since that is why I enjoy most.

When I heard 'Alice in Chains' this morning I quickly scanned my spirit to see if I was feeling chained, caged, boxed-in or bondaged in any way. While certainly there are times when even I feel as though I have chained myself to a computer, which is my office, I'm pretty quick to remind myself that I have not lost my freedom because wherever Dr. Standley goes, so goes the computer. Not a bad trade if I do say so myself. It was my decision to do what I do now and I was very conscious of my decision when I made it.

"If you are not showing God
that you are 'prepared' to handle what you are praying for,
then why should He take you seriously
if you don't even take yourself seriously?"
-- Dr. Loretta Standley

I remember about five years ago I was pulling a typical all-nighter working on the website when I stopped to check my statcounter. The numbers astounded me, nearly overnight they had gone through the roof! Suddenly I became scared, panicked, overwhelmed and interestingly enough, responsible. I arose from my chair and started pacing back and forth mumbling, "Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh!" I went into the bathroom and sat down on the side of the bathtub and started crying. I was crying because I was excited and joyful but mostly because I was scared. I knew that more would be required of me. I earned those numbers fair and square and there was still more visitors who would be coming. I put my hands over my mouth and mumbled, "My God, Father, what have I done!" With that He said back to me, "Oh shut up! This IS what you wanted. It was your decision." Again, God always talks to me in the tone that I best understand. That's our relationship. Have you ever sobered up from your tears with laughter? Well that's what I did. God is my God, not my fears. After cleaning up my fluid filled head of mucus and tears, I was back at it . . . back at my decision. My life as I knew it five minutes before, was over.

YOUR DECISION
by Alice in Chains
(lyrics below the video)

Time to change has come and gone
Watched your fears become your God

It's your decision
It's your decision

Overwhelmed, you chose to run
Apathetic to the stunned

It's your decision
It's your decision

You feed the fire that burned us all
When you lied
To feel the pain that spurs you on
Black inside

No one plans to take the path that brings you lower
And here you stand before us all and say it's over
It's over

It might seem an afterthought
Yes it hurts to know you're bought

It's your decision
It's your decision

You feed the fire that burned us all
When you lied
To feel the pain that spurs you on
Black inside

It's your decision
It's your decision

No one plans to take the path that brings you lower
And here you stand before us all and say it's over
It's over

It's over

THAT'S THE POWER OF LOVE

Audio'Siyo or Osiyo [Hello in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, THE FUNNY BONE

This morning's Musical DLG ™  (Download from God ™ ) called, "The Power of Love" by Huey Lewis and the News came as no surprise. I had been thinking of powerful "Love" since late yesterday afternoon. Yesterday I was sitting near the window on my computer when suddenly I heard a familiar smack, which was a lighter smack than what is typical. It was like a little baby smack. Since the back of the house has over-sized windows, this poses a problem for birds. While some birds will fly right smack dab into the window, the cardinals will declare war on their reflection and launch an attack on what they perceive is their enemy.

I looked out the window and laying on the table just beneath the window was a juvenile female ruby-throated hummingbird. In the midwest part of the United States, the ruby-throated hummingbird is the only hummingbird we will see. I could tell it was a juvenile female due to her color and markings. Many things raced through my mind as I saw her lay quietly on the table with her little body quickly pumping up and down. First I considered the meaning of hummingbird medicine and what this meant for me. I considered the feng shui of the open portals (windows) of the house. I considered the Moon and where it was moving through my chart. I considered the time of the day in TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) and the planetary hour in astrology. Folks, this is the way I roll because you know what I always say, "When it's the Truth, it shows up everywhere."

I took what was the most important piece of information with me and ran out the front door to find 'The Scorpion King' who was outside doing his man projects. The most important thing to me was what this bird meant in Native American Animal Medicine, which was romantic love, joy and passion. So I ran straight to my romantic love, joy and passion, which is The Scorpion King. While I was a bit anxious recognizing the meaning of what would be contrary bird medicine, he calmly said, "I'll meet you out back." He knows how important animal medicine is to me. We met at the table where the hummingbird laid on the table panting heavily. As we both bent down to get a closer look, her dark little eyes were open and stared right at us. We both felt as though this might be her last few breaths and I was feeling as though I might have to extinguish her breath so that she didn't have to suffer. Then the Scorpion King stretched out his hand and lightly petted her tiny body with his index finger. Then I reached out and lightly petted her with my index finger. Suddenly she flipped over on to her feet, shook herself a bit and then flew straight upward like a hovering helicopter, then darted off to the nearest tree. We were tickled at what just happened.

Now either hummingbird medicine had the wind knocked out of her and was stunned for a few minutes . . . or she received an instant healing through our Love . . . or maybe both. I said, "Awe baby, look at how strong the power of Love is!" We celebrated the moment, embraced each other and watched her sit happily in the tree until she finally flew on her merry way. Needless to say, I've been in the market for window ornaments to remedy the situation (the feng shui).

THE FUNNY BONE

Audio'Siyo or Osiyo [Hello in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, LIE TO ME

This morning I woke up hearing the soundtrack from the movie, "Gladiator" as my Musical DLG ™  (Download from God ™ ). It kept playing in my head louder and louder until I finally rolled out of bed and got, the get, of what I felt inspired to write about today. I'm a real fan of Russell Crowe's work, especially the movie "Gladiator". I would be willing to bet that I hold the world record for having watched that movie the most. I know this movie so well that I can recite the words to every actor's part, especially The General - Maximus Decimus Meridius, throughout the entire movie.

You may wonder how in the world I come up with "The Funny Bone" out of this soundtrack. I first began thinking of the movie, then Russell Crowe and a recent interview where he once again could not take a joke or a jab. When Russell Crowe gets a joking jab from the press, his immediate response is an aggressive jab back. He is an Aries and his warrior characteristics not only show up in the scripts he chooses but in real life as well. Still, one should be able to take 'at least' a bit of joking or criticism. He needs to learn a sense of humor. Russell ought to know that his wildly publicized tempermental history is going to cause some people to dangle a carrot in front of his face just to get a rise. That guy needs an astrologer!!! And so it goes . . once again, he abruptly leaves an interview for not being able to take a joke or a jab. That's a bummer, even so, I admire his work.

After my mind flashed about the movie and Russell Crowe I started looking at my own ability to take a joke. I can be somewhat of a defensive person (I can own that about me) since I do have a Capricorn militant Moon. That's just the way I was born. You see, Capricorn rules the military, which can make me a serious and careful person. Thankfully, my Gemini Sun snaps me out of my seriousness and into the next minute where I can be laughing my butt off and flying by the seat of my pants. And I don't mind a safe practical joke or a surprise here and there. Needless to say, The Scorpion King has taken full advantage of this and seems to get a big fat jolly out of hiding plastic spiders and rubber snakes from me thereby catching me completely off guard. The funniest part about all of it is I literally freeze in my tracks and scream. It's like in a movie where the person just stands there paralyzed in fear and screams . . that's me! I should be in movies. And what's really weird is I'm not really a fearful person. If I hear a noise, I'll jump right up to see what it was. I can certainly be confrontational when it's called for . . okay and sometimes when it's un-called for. One day I was typing away at my computer and The Scorpion King just walked up beside me and said, "Look!" I turned my head to look and in his out-stretched hand was that dang spider. Again, I screamed and we laughed until we nearly cried.

One morning I was preparing to make coffee and when I lifted the lid to put the coffee filter in there was the big plastic spider. I froze screaming with my hands on my face (just like in the movies) until I realized it was that dang fake spider, then fell to floor laughing hysterically. I could hear The Scorpion King in his office laughing wildly, then making his way to me just to enjoy the spectacle. I've made him jump only a couple of times with the spider when he found it in his shoe or coat pocket. It's fun to keep each other laughing. Just last night I was preparing to get into bed when he reached over and tossed down my side of the covers and there it was . . . THE RUBBER SNAKE! I froze in place staring straight at it, screaming for several seconds. My scream was so gutteral that he felt bad but still, we fell out laughing afterward. And in those serious and sometimes frustrating moments when we are doing a project together, it's that two-word-sarcastic-pet-name we use that will snap us out of the seriousness and get us back to laughing and scratching each other's funny bone again. I could go on and on and on about the teasing and practical jokes . . but you get the picture. When it comes to daily living, nothing lightens the mood and clears the air quite like a great sense of humor and a hearty belly laugh.

LIE TO ME

Audio'Siyo or Osiyo [Hello in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, IF YOU KNEW YOU COULD NOT FAIL

It's been over a month since I've written a 'real' Daily message according to my Musical DLGs ™  (Downloads from God ™ ). Over the past month the Sun in Aries really kept me rollin' personally and professionally leaving only minutes at the edges of the day. For those of you who are newbies to my website, I write Daily Messages according to the music I hear in my head when I wake up the morning. It's an intuitive thing. I wake up to music just like an alarm clock but there is no alarm clock. I trust the time that I wake up and the music that I wake up to as intuitive, inspirational and motivational messages from God that I call Musical DLGs ™  (Downloads from God ™ ), which I feel I'm supposed to write about to you. When I receive intuitive messages minus the music, I call them DLGs (Downloads from God ™ ).

This morning's Musical DLG ™  (Download from God ™ ) was "Strong Enough" by Sheryl Crow. When I woke up I didn't get (intuit) that this DLG had anything to do with a relationship (for any of us). The subject matter (for all of us) was more about wanting to be lied to in order to avoid the Truth. Throughout the day I'm on the phone for many reasons -- answering health questions, engaged in a laboratory test consult, a health history consult or simply doing natal chart phone readings and the bottom line is always the same, which is standing in front of the Truth. I've never been one to sugar coat anything and I prefer to go for the jugular when giving my clients the information they need, even if it hurts. The way I see it, the reason why people contact me in the first place is because they want an answer that will help them move from Point A to Point B. All I have to do is creatively give them the information that will get them there the fastest and easiest way, even if they don't like it. Even in a clinical setting, I was never the kind of doctor who would sell a patient herbs and vitamins from my holistic pharmacy to supplement their bad lifestyle in order to make money. Not this hippy chick.

On this website I offer a lot of free services, from answering health questions over the telephone to generating a Natal Chart Wheel for an individual who cannot yet afford an Expansive Natal Chart so they can begin learning their own astrology, not to mention the loads of information I write on this website is free. I don't feel the need to create a login/password situation that costs my visitors a monthly access fee. I'm pleased to be able to offer some free services and I'm also honored to be the person they chose to give them the answer. Having said that, when an individual contacts me and asks about detoxification cleanses or abdominal stimulators and I begin asking my series of questions -- How old are you (what is your birth date)? How tall are you? How much do you weigh? etc, etc., that's when I go in Point A to Point B mode and I figure they want the Truth. That's when I call them on their 30, 40, 50, 60 and sometimes 100 pound weigh gain and honestly let them know that there is no detoxification cleanse or abdominal stimulator that will help them without first losing the 'fat tissue' through proper daily nutrition and exercise. BAM! Right between the eyes. Now they can see. That's just how I roll. There is no judgment on this end of the computer or telephone line . . . I don't believe for a second that the person is really asking about detoxification cleanses or abdominal stimulators . . what they are really asking is how do I lose this weight and how can I get healthy and feel better living my Life. The thought is there but the information isn't and that's where I come in. And then there's the questions about relationships, money, career . . lie to me? . . not this gal. BAM!

God, I feel like hell tonight
Tears of rage I cannot fight
I'd be the last to help you understand
Are you strong enough to be my man?

Nothing's true and nothing's right
So let me be alone tonight
Cause you can't change the way I am
Are you strong enough to be my man?

Lie to me
I promise I'll believe
Lie to me
But please don't leave

I have a face I cannot show
I make the rules up as I go
It's try and Love me if you can
Are you strong enough to be my man?

When I've shown you that I just don't care
When I'm throwing punches in the air
When I'm broken down and I can't stand
Will you be man enough to be my man?

Lie to me
I promise I'll believe
Lie to me
But please don't leave
