Musing Words ...
by Patsy Patricia
Things really are moving more slowly now that the colder months are here. Time seems to have become sluggish from the cold.. and yet as the things that we want to move are like molasses, the things that we wish to slow down are like lightening!
I started some late in the season projects this year... the summer slipped by me with little more than a gasp. I just knew that I would have a moment more to finish up all that I had put on my list of "things to get done"... I think this is once again a lesson to me about priorities. I am learning... I promise!
I am going to do the thing that always seems to work for me... learn to do something so well I can teach it to others.
Look for new classes in the new year to help you set realistic goals and priorities... they are coming to a class room near you soon!
shoulda, woulda, coulda...
Mirrors in your life
Today, I saw my list of things to complete before the Thanksgiving holiday.
I was simply astounded by all that I thought I needed to do.
The things I expect of myself are simply ridiculous.
How many of you can say the same thing to yourself in the mirror?
Today, I am going to let someone else do some of the jobs that I think need to be done.
Today I will allow myself to delegate.
Look out, People...! Here IT Comes!
What is it about doing it myself that makes me think it will be any better than allowing someone else to perform a job or a service? Have you ever set down a job that you knew you could delegate and thought... 'this person won't do it as well as I want to have it done..." Well, why won't they?
If I can let go of the control ... hmmm
and communicate my expectations...
and then accept WITH GRACE
the performance of another....
It will be such a release
I know about control. I am a self proclaimed control freak.... what?
I even planned my own birthday party... so I could make sure that it was just what I wanted it to be...
How many other people out there embrace the control concept, and do not intend to relinquish the control they seem to think they have?
I see 1, 2... there is 3!
Yea, a whole lot of us out there...
But what is it getting for us? This controlling of the environment, other people... even controlling our breath... moving into the controlling of our bodies, and our minds - no wonder we want to be in control.
But I ask again; What is it getting for us, all this control?
I bring all this up now, because it is coming time
for self examination... in the winter months...
time for going within.
becoming the hermit for a while.
looking at who we are
I welcome you.
Join me and others...
Embracing your control and learning about surrender....
Being gently ....Proactive.
More chances to look within and learn about yourself! It's that time of year... !

A different kind of posting for today!
sharing a piece of my mind with you ... please share it back!
So, I have mentioned this to several people... The Year of Yes!... and each person has endorsed it and loved the concept. I borrowed the idea from a friend and colleague of mine, Tracee Sioux, http://traceesioux.com/blog/ , Who is a fab coach and Law of Attraction specialist, and I am running with it! The process is relatively simple. It's simply the allowing of your soul to direct your path. No arguments. No waffling about, pausing on a decision. Learning to re-decide, or re-define, as you go. It's absolutely marvelous... and scary... and soul shifting!
Last year, I signed on with a business coach. Signed on and paid some big money to learn how to listen to my soul and open myself up to run my business. And as you all saw... iiEnergy Works born-ed itself. Metaphysical Fairs started to align and open up. It has been absolutely MARVELOUS! Scary too - oh yea! But my heart is singing - and the Clarksville Community is singing... and we are having fun and loving life!
Back to the Year of YES! I opted to go for it. I decided to open myself up to listening to my heart and stop listening to the doubts and fears that were being fed into my head. I jumped on board with being "VERTICAL". This does not mean that I said yes to all the material stuff or the craziness of unstable relationships! This means that I listened to what my SOUL was telling me. Looking down and seeing that my feet were on the path that I originally selected... with tangents and side experiences. I have said yes, to being a gather of things and people. I have opened my eyes (all 3 of them) and embraced my intuitive, psychic skills and use them! I have embraced my day job - and love the outreach I am doing!
There has been some "Yes" that has not been as much fun, but it also had to do with making decisions to clear out what was not healthy for my soul and for my spiritual growth... (wow - did I just say that?) Yes! As one of my mentors and Teachers has taught, you have to clear out some things to make room for the new... you can't hoard up all that crap and expect to enjoy it! Set it free to make someone else happy!
Want to know more... come to iiEnergy Works for one of our classes... Path of the Mystic, for example... explore your path to see if there is a YEAR OF YES! in it!
A Few Words from Patsy Patricia:
Daydream... a lot! Wishes and daydreams can very easily turn into your reality!
Get into Nature. The weather is fine... the birds are singing... and your soul wants to see you near a tree or plant... communing with nature.
Slanted Driveways are a shift in perspective... What? Yes, if you think about it, the driveway is the entryway into your sanctuary... and as you drive into the sanctuary, what happens?
Here at iiEnergy Works, we are growing into a real community of people: Teachers, Healers... Students! I love the way people seem to wander into the store and find something just right... I am constantly amazed!
A few weeks ago, we had a great class with ... wait.. every week we have a great class!
Janna Philips is lighting up the community... Beth Middlecamp brings us rocks and sparkly things that HEAL, and teaches us about them... Patsy (that's ME!) teaches intuitive building skills, mediattion... REIKI!

At the shop, we have been networking... bleh that word! But we have been reaching out to those in the community to bring in more things that YOU can use.
We also cleanse and clear the shop constantly to keep the energy clear and fresh! We do this so that when you come in, you can feel that fresh energy and use it to heal yourself or use is to bring fresh light to your day/week/life! Don't forget that we often have an energy worker on call to help you with your energy challenges!
The moons of the past month have really been influencing the creativity of all of us here and we have been following the bliss and making the energy flow too!
It started with that beautiful energy of the moon on Friday the 13th of June... oh MY!
The 'girls' and I cooked up a batch of candles and let them simmer in that moon energy... whoooooo hoooo! The energy that combined really is fantastic! We danced and howled at the moon, right there on Ft. Campbell Blvd... You would have loved to have joined us if you had been there! (so a little suggestion for you.. if you know the moon is gonna be powerful... you may want to cruise by the store to see what we are up to!)
The candles that we make, we offer to you for sale... those that we can let go of. Tammy and I are particularly mischievous with our magick candles... so you will surely love them!
and by popular demand... we are bringing a class to you about how to dress the magical candles. Check it out at

Some verbage from Patsy Patricia
The last couple of weeks at the shop have been very fun and entertaining for me and my staff. We have moved things, AGAIN, and planned classes, and we have brought out more of our magick and started blessing our own brand of candles! More new people are starting to come in the door! They bring their stories and share with ours! We are feeling the love and loving the feel!
Know what I am really finding out? The magical charge and prayers that we opened the store with are opening out like a big lotus flower! It's bringing a new essence to my life as I am a part of the process... and I know that everyone that comes in the door is receiving the blessing of loving energy that is found here.
Finder's Keepers Children's Class about Crystals! First class starts on 06/28/14 - That's Saturday! Be sure and bring your child to share with us!
Do you know what this is?... check it out! Matt King's "Hush"
Channeling... what is the world is that? Do I even want to do it?
I thought about what I considered to be channeling for years, and found out that my conception of channeling was incorrect. I thought that when you channeled, you were allowing other 'beings' to talk through you, without a filter and without being cognizant of what was being said. What!? No way!
But I can now tell you - no lie! Channeling is something we all do... every day.
Yes, I said it, we all do it everyday, when we listen to our instincts, our gut feelings about something. Remember that first impression of someone you met recently? You either immediately liked them or ... not. Maybe you just overlooked that person because they were not putting out a big energy. The first impression you make on someone is also a form of channeling - you are pushing your energy, your self, out in the open to be 'read' for whatever purpose. Channeling is a way of picking up energy, or putting energy out to be interpreted by those around you.
Simply put, if you are able to meet someone, you will pick up their energy with your auric energy and decide it they are a match for your state of being. That is one way to describe it! Take it one step further and reach out with your energy and pick up the energetic trail of events, past or future... simple!
Tammy, Carley, Nancy and I have been working up some new magick! We have been studying and practicing and have developed a new line of dressed candles for you all to enjoy! They are powerful! They are created within the cycles of the moon - moon energy is very intense! And they have been blessed to bring the highest good for the intentions set. In store now!!!
Want to learn to dress your own candles? We are going to offer more classes on that! Keep checking with us for the details of the events!
Did you know:
We have our book club that we host most every Thursday... which turns into a combination of conversation about the book, and other interesting tidbits that come up. It always - yes, always! - amazes me as to the synchronicity of the lives of all who are in the group seems to open up for examination when we are immersed in a book! We are in the process of selecting our next adventure... I know it will be a good one!
Book Club Meetup is most every Thursday at 7:30 pm at iiEnergy Works Metaphysical.
Come by and see us at the store!
We would love to see you and hear what you have to share!
See you soon!

NEW MOON Meditations
We are putting together a New Moon Meditation for the end of June... Please join us for the meditation, singing bowls and possibly even drumming!
The growth spurts of spring brought lots of new changes and information and friends to my life, and for that I am so very grateful! And now that summer weather is here, the growth is going even faster and is more and more intense. I will need to speak to my friend, Suzie Kerr Wright, ( http://www.astrogirl12.com/ ) to see what the stars are saying about all this movement!
You know that old quote,
"Today is the first day of the rest of my life." ?
Take a minute to say that to yourself, and see how that feels to you?
I think that every day that I start with an acknowledgement of where I am, and making each day a new beginning - with a new understanding of the intricacies of yesterday, is one of the most interesting days in my life!
It doesn't have to be much. A bird chirping and singing me awake... and a remembering that the same bird sang me to sleep... The same ~ yet different and new... that is soul shining moment!
Remember the last time I chatted.. I spoke about a bucket list.
I love the thought of a list of things that are so interesting that I put them on a list to be completed. AND THEN I GO DO THE THINGS ON THE LIST!
That's the key - don't make a list that is gathering dust! And if you think that you are looking at something that overextends your limits, financially and realistically... you may very well be! But don't make that bucket list to gather dust... cause that is what you will be doing to yourself! If you are dreaming about going to Florida for a week at the beach ... then do the research! Perhaps you can do it... And then Make It Happen!
But if you never take the first step, then it will never ever ever happen...
Put your bucket list to use... as a tool of growth!
I love fountains.. and water and rocks and plants growing!
This is on my bucket list!
Make your bucket list a "it's happening list" !
Don't make a list and put it aside for later... be in the now and be in the juicy part of life that is part of being alive.
so ... once again, I am off to jump in the life that I am creating with my thoughts and words!
I invite you again... be in your life, not just waiting for it!
Living in light and sharing it with you!

We all reflect images, attitudes, energy back those around us.
And those around us in turn reflect our energy, attitudes and images back to us.
Sometimes this is a good thing, as we are projecting such beautiful energy outward.
And as you know, sometimes this is a challenging thing... as our ego may be feeling inflated and gross or we have opted in to a challenging energetic state.
What are your thoughts on that... do you feel that those around you are light filled and happy, or do you find yourself surrounded by energy suckers?
Wow... that's one that I have to look at too. Some days, I am surrounded by light, and other days... I feel like I have all my shields up.
What is the solution to this? The opportunity to grow is definitely here... but do I learn to better shield myself? No... that does not feel right. Let's let that question simmer for a minute while we go on to other subjects... similar ones.
I received the news yesterday that my sister had to have her beloved and long-time companion put down. Her dog was older and had opted into blindness, deafness and a thyroid condition. I know that our animals take on our challenges for us, so that we can go on to learn and grow without at least one block in our physical world to delay our adventure. Being human is a very juicy and sometimes messy endeavor... and it comes with different ways of blocking ourselves from having adventures that may be a little scary...
My sister's dog is just one example; it makes me question: what is it that she (the dog) was shielding her companion (my sister) from? First the thyroid, then going deaf and lastly, shutting herself up in a world without light...?
Then I look at my household companions. My husband's love: the schnauzer... diabetic (controlled with diet and insulin), and mostly blind. Loving and delighted to have company touching her and loving on her... but not allowed to go far from our presence due to her physical limitations....
My white cat: declawed at an early age due to aggression, and now not allowed to go outside due to the lack of protection, but still aggressive! and he also opts into crystals in his kidneys... and is very often peeing with blood in it...
What does it all mean!? And why is this coming up for healing now...?
I have looked at Louise Hay's "You Can Heal Your Life" book to try to gain some insight and understanding... and that's kinda scary... but truth often is...
Where are your animals taking on your challenges? Have you thought about why they do that?
I think that if we look around us and notice, not only the people that are drawn to us and reflect back to us what we are shining out, but also at our loving companions, our pets... we can better understand where we are and what we are experiencing... and if we want to change that experience.
Living the human life is gonna be JUICY!
Juicy is good .... Right?
When you embrace the life
that you have,
You can change the perspective of what you are doing.
What is your bucket list comprised of?
Do you HAVE a bucket list?
Looking at our own lives is one way to discover if we like where we are now.
If you don't like where you are... what are you going to do to change it?
Introspective moments are bitter sweet, because then we get to decide... do we stay or do we go... and ... are we finished here?
For now... I am going to meditate and think about my bucket list... and the reflections that are shining back at me...
Living in light and sharing it with you...!
Ride it Out!

What's on your bucket list? If it's something we can help you with, let us know:
Spring is here! I think... it is Tennessee, after all!
I have put together a little information about the traditions of the Day of the Dead.. Pretty interesting!
Stop in and see the sugar skulls that we have in stock... just a few, but they are fun!
A lot of people love the skulls - fancy sugar and just plain bone. I don't love the bone ones, but they don't creep me out. Sugar skulls are a way to celebrate the memory of our past ancestors. I think that is pretty cool. The Day of the Dead holiday is celebrated right around the All Hallows Eve or Samhain on the calendar. It's kinda like the Memorial Day that is celebrated in America in late spring.
HOLIDAY: Dia de los Muertos
Significance Pray for and remember friends and family members who have died
Celebrations Workmanship of altars of the dead and traditional day of the dead's food
Begins October 31
Ends November 2
Dia de los Muertos is a traditional Meso-American holiday dedicated to the ancestors; it honors both death and the cycle of life. In Mexico, neighbors gather in local cemeteries to share food, music, and fun with their extended community, both living and departed. The celebration acknowledges that we still have a relationship with our ancestors and loved ones that have passed away.
On October 31, All Hallows Eve, the children make a children's altar to invite the angelitos (spirits of dead children) to come back for a visit. November 1 is All Saints Day, and the adult spirits will come to visit. November 2 is All Souls Day, when families go to the cemetery to decorate the graves and tombs of their relatives. The three-day fiesta filled with marigolds, the flowers of the dead; muertos (the bread of the dead); sugar skulls; cardboard skeletons; tissue paper decorations; fruit and nuts; incense, and other traditional foods and decorations.
Did you know...
I just found out why the skulls were made of sugar...
...Sugar art was brought to the New World by Italian missionaries in the 17th century. The first Church mention of sugar art was from Palermo at Easter time when little sugar lambs and angels were made to adorn the side altars in the Catholic Church.
Mexico, abundant in sugar production and too poor to buy fancy imported European church decorations, learned quickly from the friars how to make sugar art for their religious festivals. Clay molded sugar figures of angels, sheep and sugar skulls go back to the Colonial Period 18th century. Sugar skulls represented a departed soul, had the name written on the forehead and was placed on the home ofrenda or gravestone to honor the return of a particular spirit. Sugar skull art reflects the folk art style of big happy smiles, colorful icing and sparkly tin and glittery adornments. Sugar skulls are labor intensive and made in very small batches in the homes of sugar skull makers. These wonderful artisans are disappearing as fabricated and imported candy skulls take their place.
and when I googled hand-made sugar skulls... not a single "sugar" sugar skull came up... hmmm...
Just a few fun factoids to think about... it's not just about morbid skulls... bring some bling, color and remembrance to the party!
So, our store is open and I am enjoying the sharing of the community that has come in to talk and to purchase and to educate me!
I thank each and every one of you as you come in to see what we have brought together.
Tonight we will have our first Meet & Greet for the meetup.com group, Energy & Lightworkers of Clarksville TN. I hope we have enough chairs! But if not, some will either have to share or stand... it will all work!
Here is a picture of our current altar. It is set up in the center of the store and holds our dreams, and prayers... and amplifies them to the universe for completion and sharing! The big rock is a pink amethyst... isn't she gorgeous! If you are new to altars.. please be aware that you should not touch what you do not know... thank you!
Candles anyone?! Some of my fav's: Poof! and Everything and More!
The resident Golden Healer Cluster... wow! Love the energy!
