The Fabulous Month Of June
Somewhere over the rainbow way up high
there's a land that i have heard of once in a lullaby
somewhere over the rainbow skies are blue
and the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true
Someday i'll wish upon a star
and wake up where the clouds are far behind me
where troubles melt like lemon drops
way above the chimney tops that's where you'll find me
Somewhere over the rainbow bluebirds fly
birds fly over the rainbow why then oh why can't i?
-Harold Arlen ,Yip Harburg 1939

June is known as the month of having the most wedding ceremonies. It is the month where spring turns to summer and the weather can be perfect for an outdoor wedding should one prefer. June flowers are blooming and the smell of roses and honeysuckle's are in the air. While June 's full moon is known as the strawberry moon it has also been called the honeymoon in many places around the world.
Happiness in marriage is not something that just happens rather something that is created. In the art of togetherness the little things are the big things. It is never being too old to hold hands. It is remembering to say "I love you" at least once a day. It is never going to sleep angry. It is at no time taking the other for granted; the courtship should not end with the honeymoon; it should continue through all the years. It is having a mutual sense of values and common objectives. It is standing together facing the world. It is forming a circle of love that gathers in the whole family. It is doing things for each other, not in the attitude of duty or sacrifice, but in the spirit of joy. It is speaking words of appreciation and demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways. It is not looking for perfection in each other. It is cultivating flexibility, patience, understanding and a sense of humor is having the capacity to forgive and forget. It is giving each other an atmosphere in which each can grow. It is finding room for the things of the spirit. It is a common search for the good and the beautiful. It is establishing a relationship in which the independence is equal, dependence is mutual and the obligation is reciprocal. It is remembering to always date your spouse. It is not only marrying the right partner; it is being the right partner. It is discovering what marriage can be, at its best."
The month of May saw us through another month of working from home and homeschooling.
We ventured out for Mother's Day to surprise my Mother. It was the first time we had seen my Mom and Dad since the pandemic started. We made lunch and sat on the porch. It could not have been a more pleasant day to get away and visit loved ones. Our son continued with his E-Learning from home and and with some sadness was able to say goodbye to his teachers on-line as the last day of school approached. For Memorial Day we visited the mountains to place flowers on my Mother-In-Laws and her parents graves. Our son placed flowers on his Great Grandfathers grave in honor of his being a WWI Veteran. We watched in awe as the SpaceX spacecraft lifted off heading for the International Space Station. This was the first time our son was at an age where he would understand and see a manned craft leave from US soil. The month brought us an abundance of rain and cooler temperatures. The birds continue to gather and sing around our back porch while the flowers are in full bloom. While many businesses started to open we were more apt to err on the side of caution still remaining home at least for a little while longer. Thank You to all of the essential workers. You have been challenged greatly and we Thank You. Continue to enjoy the tranquility of life for the moment. Enjoy your time with family and stay focused and safe.
Summer Solstice starts Saturday June 20th. This occurs when the earth arrives at the point in its orbit where the north pole is at its maximum tilt toward the sun resulting in the longest day of the year and the shortest night of the year.
Did you know that June is Child Vision Awareness Month. There is an estimated 5 million elementary-aged children with vision problems. Despite the fact that undetected and untreated vision problems can lead to serious academic, health and social problems, only 1 in 3 children receive an eye exam before entering school. Vision challenges are hard to detect as many children do not realize they are seeing the world differently from other children.
The Magic of Flowers
The rose is one of the most famous and beloved of all flowers. As William Shakespeare once wrote “What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” Roses have been revered for centuries. Historical evidence shows they were grown in China about 5,000 years ago and they have continued to play a part in history ever since. The rose has many meanings which vary depending on its color. However, any rose can be commonly seen as a symbol of Love, Honor, Faith, Beauty, Balance, Passion, Wisdom, Intrigue, Devotion, Sensuality and Timelessness just to name a few.
The honeysuckle flower has a very straightforward meaning. It signifies happiness. Beyond the Victoria interpretation of the honeysuckle flower, it also means sweet disposition which might relate to the sweet-smelling aroma that the flowers have. It can also be because of the sweet nectar that hummingbirds love so much. Honeysuckle also means fraternal affection or devoted affection. It symbolizes devoted affection in the form of a lover’s embrace. If you look at the way the honeysuckle clings to its habitat like a post or a wall, it looks very much like a love bind. One cannot help but be happy with a well-protected garden where the honeysuckle grows. It attracts the most interesting of creatures, the humming bird. The idea of pending nuptials in a home is also a cause for celebration. Honeysuckle flower also symbolizes happiness and living a sweet life – without too much squabbles in between.
The birthstone most commonly associated with the month of June is the Pearl, and with its
significance and desirability, it is clear to see why. These stones have been highly prized and presented as a gift for a long time, with the natural beauty and purity being seen a great way to herald a birth or marriage. The other qualities that pearls are said to represent our health and longevity, suggesting that people embracing this June birthstone will benefit from these properties. This idea of health is understandable given the origin of the stone. The creation of pearls is the mollusk’s way of dealing with dangerous, foreign bodies, with layer upon layer of nacre covering the threat. The fact that this produces such a beautiful effect is purely coincidental. Unfortunately, thanks to their popularity, the majority of pearls sold today are cultured and not completely natural.
An alternative birthstone that people born in June can wear is Alexandrite, a stunning gem originating in Russia and named after their Tsar. The meaning behind this stone is different to that of Pearl, with joy and good-fortune supposedly being bestowed upon its wearer. Pearl may be the most widely recognized of all the June birthstones, but perhaps this should be replaced with Alexandrite given the jewels characteristics. Alexandrite is the perfect birthstone for Gemini because it is a stone with two very different sides. By day, the stone has a soft, green tone, but by night, under the harsh light, it glows purple-Gemini transforming from a natural, calm entity into one that shouts and blazes. This dramatic color-changing effect ideally suits the split personalities and characterization of twins associated with the star sign.
Finally, there is Moonstone, another stone that shows the changing mood and tones of people born within this month, altering greatly from pearl yet holding the same meaning of health and longevity. It is a stone renowned for its beauty that was once held as something sacred and an element for the lunar gods and is today used as the state stone for Florida. A moonstone is actually a form of feldspar, but it has been more commonly referred to by this name because of the sheen that is reminiscent of the moon. It is claimed to change in tone depending on the phase of the current phase of the moon, again reflecting the shifting personalities of the astrological sign.
There is no better month than June to have such a range of birthstones available. These three stones hold different properties and create a different look – with the elegant simplicity of the Pearl, the extrovert qualities of Alexandrite and the shimmering beauty of Moonstone – that mean anybody born within this month can find a June birthstone that suits them best.
The Gemini zodiac sign symbolizes youth, adventure, vibrancy and restless which is symbolic of the Air element. They are witty, intellectually stimulated and enjoy company which challenges their mental prowess. Gemini zodiac sign has a great sense of humor. They love to entertain and are usually the life of any party or discussion. Gemini zodiac sign is the third sign in the Western astrology system. They are always in a race against time and not always easy to understand. In other words, you can say that they are genuinely the Twins or “split personalities” of the same person. The Gemini trait that is most popularly known is the excellent power of communication. They love to talk and give advice. Being one of the most social of the star signs, Gemini personalities have great communication skills.
You are the Patriarchs and Matriarchs of the Zodiac. Family means everything to you. You watch over your brood with determination and zeal. You can be counted upon to be at every graduation, wedding, surprise party or barbecue that has anything to do with your relatives. They are definitely your tribe and you are very generous with all of them.
Many of you have very strong careers as you know that this is the best way to provide for your family. Others love being stay-at-home parents because who could care more about your children than you? You want to see them succeed and will do everything in your power to make that happen.
Home and family are so important to you that you are willing to submerge your own wants and desires for the good of your immediate group. Often quite ambitious, you seek to get ahead in order to provide the best for your loved ones. You like soft tones and low lights and prefer to allude to the things that you find difficult. Like your totem, the crab who sidesteps, you may have trouble being direct. This can lead to misunderstandings with others so you need to find a way to be clear. Perhaps writing things down can be a solution. As a partner or a parent, you are among the best. All those around you never have to wonder if you care because you show it repeatedly.

Tarot of the Month
In this three-card reading for the month of June, we will address the first ten days from the 1st-10th, mid-month, 11th-20th, and end of month, 21st-30th. First up, we see the 7 of Wands. This card has a picture of a strong man on it and he is wielding a long wand and in front of him are six other wands. Each of these wands is strong and well-built symbolizing fertility. He is a man of courage and strength. He has strong hands that are put to practical use. If you are this man then you are now on your way to your destiny, to fulfill some mission that you know you have to do. You are capable and wise. You are reaping the harvest and bringing home the rewards. You are not afraid of challenge nor hard work.
You set your goals high and you always attempt to achieve them, despite whatever difficulties may get in your way. If you are not this person, then this type of man is going to enter your life and make a lot of changes to it. He is only there to help and to guide you. He will not push you anywhere you don't want to go, though will be available for advice and counselling where necessary. If you are a woman who has not yet had her first child, it is possible that a pregnancy is indicated by this card. The child may be conceived or born in winter. You will surmount all obstacles and achieve your dreams. Mid-month, we have the 2 of Wands. This card shows a man with part of his back to us and he is holding a staff in one hand and is looking out towards a distant mountain. He appears to be studious and in deep concentration. He may be seriously considering his future. He is tall and well-built and wears clothes for travel.
This can suggest that you are about to consider a new move in your life that will make big changes to your existing living arrangements. You may actually uproot yourself and move to another country, another state or another town. Your job is obviously undergoing some kind of transformation and you may be breaking new ground with some new endeavor. This will require your time, your patience and your strong belief in yourself that you can do anything you set out to do.
You could be presented with a rather unique opportunity that leads you on to pursue your wildest dreams. Or you may have developed your own vision or idea and be in the process of bringing this all to fruition by your very own hands. Don't let others sidetrack you at this stage, for you are vulnerable to suggestion and may listen to some bad advice or discouragement. Trust in your own wisdom and you will ultimately have the last laugh. To end the month, we have the 5 of Pentacles. The picture on this card shows a woman who is wearing a scarf covering her head and shoulders. Beside her is a young man who has a rag torn clothing on his body. He uses a stick to assist him with walking. It is night time and the harsh elements of winter are hitting them hard. In the background they pass (unknowingly) a large stained-glass window containing five pentacles. If you draw this card you may be called upon to help someone in need and this may be financial help. You would be wise to question the motives of this person, just in case they are leaning on you too heavily, whereas they should be standing on their own two feet. As we end spring and enter summer solstice, end Gemini and enter Cancer, we have lots of exciting new endeavors, huge moves, new beginnings, fertility, career changes, big decisions and choices to make. Believe in yourself and be patient, as all of this newness and change is a positive thing. Be prepared to help others in need because fortunately, you will be in a good position to do so. A blessed Litha to all! Sunshine and love!
Questions and Counsel
I know my friends and family think I’m crazy, but I swear my grandparents came to visit me the night before they both passed. Did they? Am I crazy?
No, I do not think you are crazy. As we all move deeper into strengthening our intuition, we all begin to feel crazy. It is quite the isolating experience. Especially if you are being visited by family members as they begin to pass. I absolutely believe that you had visitations as their soul’s began their journey into Spirit. It’s crazy, isn’t it? To think out of everyone in your family, Spirit wanted you to posse this crazy, but special gift. I wouldn’t be surprised if other people in your family has like abilities, since psychic development is usually linage. Maybe you’re just the first one to openly talk about it. My personal mantra for life is “question everything but your intuition.”

During this time of much needed healing and self-work, I would like to discuss the chakras. Chakra is derived from the Sanskrit word meaning wheel. There are seven main chakras, which align the spine, starting from the base of the spine through to the crown of the head. These swirling wheels of energy correspond to glands and organs in the body. When we are not balanced these, energy wheels become blocked which may cause dis-ease and physical manifestations of illness in our bodies. We were all divinely made, and our bodies signal us when we are out of alignment. Fear, anxiety and stress are common causes of chakra malfunction. This will be a seven-part series discussing each individual chakra thoroughly, starting with the root chakra.
The root chakra which is located at the base of the spine. It is the primary chakra of our body, which acts as an energy pathway to connect us to our physical bodies and the earth. The root chakra allows us to keep our balance and is associated with the color red which represents passion, strength and fire. Physically, it is responsible for the proper functioning of the legs, feet, bladder, kidneys, prostate, blood and spine.
An imbalanced root chakra can cause several problems such as fatigue, anemia, hemorrhoids, arthritis, constipation, lower back pain, weight issues, diarrhea and conditions that affect the knees, hips and spine including arthritis, kidney stones and osteoporosis.
It controls the adrenal cortex which is located on the upper part of each kidney. The root chakra holds both our genetic inheritance for vitality as well as our innate predispositions to disease.
It governs the birthing process. A good connection with the root chakra helps a woman to have a normal birth. If there are emotional issues about control or fear, the birthing process may be an ordeal.
A person with unbalanced root chakra may show aggression, despair, anger, victimhood, violence, obsession and jealousy.
When you root chakra is healthy you see the goodness in life, feel supported, have a sense of trust and belonging.
Affirmations for the root chakra- I belong wherever I am. I accept myself as I am. I am grateful for the experiences of my life.
Crystals- ruby, hematite, red jasper and bloodstone. Essential oils for the root chakra are rosemary, ylang-ylang, patchouli and sandalwood.
Archangel Michael corresponds to the root chakra. He stands for courage, integrity and justice. He helps us to feel like we belong.
You can heal the root chakra by spending time in nature, walking barefoot to strengthen your connection with the earth, dancing, practicing yoga, wearing red clothing and eating foods that nourish the root chakra such as pomegranates, tomatoes, strawberries and beets.
In order to improve their health, many people practice different types of healing techniques. In time, they become increasingly aware of the movement of subtle energies within the body and around the body, and the connection between these energies and their health.
This awareness strengthens the old idea which considers the “vital energy” as a reason for health and its lack as a cause of illness. Our body is not only formed of physical elements such as muscles, nerves, arteries, organs, glands, etc., but it also has a subtle energy system through which the “vital energy” flows. In turn, this subtle energy system is composed of energetic “bodies” that surround the physical body and help us to process our thoughts and emotions.
Energy bodies have energy centers called chakras that function as valves which allow vital energy to circulate through the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies.
Our body also has meridians and nadis. These are like rivers that carry vital energy into the physical body. If this energy is deficient or blocked, we are prone to illness.
If we have enough energy within our bodies and it flows freely, we can maintain our health easier. Stress is one of the reasons why the flow of vital energy breaks or weakens. It is often caused by thoughts and negative feelings (fear, worry, doubt, restlessness) which adhere to the subtle energy system.
A continuous state of stress can block the body’s natural ability to regenerate and protect itself.
The use of vital energy helps the body to relieve stress through deep relaxation. This healing method is a technique of transmitting this subtle energy to oneself or others through the use of hands to the human energy system.
Energy maintains the energy balance and vitality, removing the physical and emotional effects of accumulated stress. Also, this method can:
accelerate the healing process;
help the body to remove toxins;
develop emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being;
balance the flow of subtle energy and thus remove blockages;
gives your life a deep and unshakable sense of purpose and meaning;
The energy treats the body, the emotions, the mind and the spirit of a person as a whole.
This is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing that anyone can use. This method can be learned by anyone who wants to improve their health and the quality of their life.
With love always
Can you recall a time somebody was kind to you? Now change the scenario and think of a time you were kind to another person? Call to mind their reaction and how you responded. Move into your heart and notice the feelings there. If you read no further than this point, you should know that kindness affects the user and the experiencer — leaving a lasting impression on both. In this fast pace world, kindness and compassion takes a back seat to selfies, self-interest and expendable human interactions. Every person is waiting to be discovered or become rich, believing it holds the key to their happiness. Yet when they attain success, they long for their former life having underestimated the trappings of fame and celebrity. But it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers and lovers of every kind. It needs people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane. And these qualities have little to do with success as we have defined it.” Kindness is fundamental to the human existence. We are thrust into the world as newborns and enriched with the kindness of our parents’ nurturing for the ensuing years. We are powerless at birth and depend on our caregivers to provide for our needs. Therefore, kindness is sewn into the framework of our DNA. We are literally wired for kindness. Every person has opinions on how to improve the world, though no one wants to practice kindness in their own backyard. Peace is only a thought away. Its motives emerge through kind thoughts towards oneself and others. Unconditional love flows through specific channels of respect, integrity, purpose, meaning, value, response-ability, forgiveness, kindness, and compassion — and these form the foundation of our new, naturally ethical lives. Kindness is not something that demands hard work. It originates from the simple act of doing no harm to others. It involves judging less, however compelled you might be to do so. The ego is quick to judge when it is victimized and hurt, so it retaliates in revenge. Kindness, however, bites its tongue. It does not seek to be right but to preserve peace of mind. You gain little by giving someone a piece of your mind, other than inciting conflict and separation.
It was the Lebanese-born poet Khalil Gibran who wrote: “I have learnt silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet strange, I am ungrateful to these teachers.” It might be clear to you that fighting force with force is not the way towards peace. But you might ask, does that mean allowing others to treat me unfairly? No, not by any means. Though you needn’t retaliate with overwhelming force. It is not implied that you become a doormat; however, it is urged that you to accept the lessons contained within the experience. Are you letting others treat you unfairly on some level? Or unconsciously giving them permission to do so? No matter how anyone responds to your kindness, just by repeating out loud the words you didn’t hear often enough or never heard at all, you guarantee yourself to be the one who exits each scene of life more healed, aligned and expanded than the moment before. Kindness has many benefits including increased happiness and a healthy heart. It slows down the aging process and improves relationships and connections, which indirectly boosts your health. People believe kindness is particular to those of religious faith because of their moral vows. Kindness does not require you to be of religious faith or even spiritual. Demonstrations of kindness are observed in man’s best friend, the dog. Cats also show kindness and are treasured for their emotional connection. Kindness broadens your life’s frame of reference and is a symbol of respect to value the receiver. Considering approximately 70% of our body is made up of water, kindness has a direct impact on our immediate health. People believe kindness signifies weakness and being taken advantage of. It’s important to delineate between kindness and being a doormat to others. You can be kind and assertive when others attempt to profit from your kindness. You should in no way undermine your self-worth at the expense of others, but simply practice kindness while upholding your integrity. It’s no surprise wicked acts have a greater impression on us than acts of kindness. We are alerted to fear more than goodness. Some believe we are wired to detect that which threatens our survival and happiness. We give attention to acts of cruelty in the news because it is perceived as a threat to our survival. In these times of disingenuous social media interactions, unkindness abounds as people hide behind screens. This does not make it appropriate to abuse others. There is a person on the other side of the screen with feelings we must take into account. An important lesson in kindness involves asking yourself: ‘How would I handle being the recipient of this?’ If it doesn’t feel good avoid the behavior. “Hurt is hurt, and every time we honor our own struggle and the struggles of others by responding with empathy and compassion, the healing that results affects all of us”. Here is a passage from Mother Teresa’s poem titled Anyway, in which she states: “People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered; forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; be kind anyway. Incorporate the smallest acts of kindness into your everyday life and notice the ripple effects. Armed with this knowledge, it is the Dalai Lama who reminds us that if you can’t be kind, avoid harming others.
