BOLD AND NAKED

Audio'Siyo or Osiyo [Hello in Cherokee]

Last Daily Message, White Bird Must Fly

This morning's Musical DLG™ (Musical Download from God™) called, 'Father Figure' by George Michael has always had more of a spiritual-vibe for me. I don't get too romanced by songs and associate them with people, but I do get spiritually-romanced by some songs and associate them with God. This is one of those songs. Whenever I hear this song I imagine God and I singing different parts of this song to each other. For instance, below is how I picture this volley of lyrics between me and Him.

GOD: That's all I wanted, something special, something sacred, in your eyes

ME: For just one moment, to be bold and naked, at Your side

ME: Sometimes I think that you'll never understand me

GOD: Maybe this time is forever, say it can be, whoa-oh

ME: That's all You wanted, something special, someone sacred, in Your life

ME: Just for one moment, to be warm and naked

GOD: At my side

I picture the 'bold and naked' lyric as more 'exposed and surrendered' to Him rather than being butt naked next to a person. I see it as being more comfortable in my own skin with Him, than with anyone else. Isn't that the way it's supposed to be? I tend to go pretty deep with my thinking folks.

Back in my early 20's I had a lot going on, as many 20-somethings do, where I unplugged from God and it took about 10 years for me to return. I wasn't atheist and I wasn't agnostic but I was pissed off enough that I unplugged from Him and was very unapologetic about it. When I hear the lyric, "Maybe this time is forever, say it can be, whoa-oh," I think of when I disconnected and He is asking me to agree that this time it's forever. After all, we do have free will and He doesn't even make us Love, honor or respect Him. We still get to choose.

I'm wondering why He downloaded this song to my brain this morning but I'm glad He did. Maybe He meant for me to tell you that at one time in my Life, I was disconnected from Him and found my way back. Maybe it's as simple as that.

WHITE BIRD MUST FLY

Audio'Siyo or Osiyo [Hello in Cherokee]

Last Daily Message, With No Involvement

This morning's Musical DLG™ (Musical Download from God™) called, 'White Bird' by It's A Beautiful Day is hands-down my own personal anthem. I remember hearing this song as a very young girl (early grade-schooler) and thinking they wrote this song about me. I have identified with this song for literally, as long as I can remember. It came out in 1969, which means I was 8 years old at the time. This song didn't make me feel as sad as the song is written. It actually made me feel different, special and I liked it.

We often hear people say they "were always different than others" as if that were a bad thing or something so unusual. Of course we are different from others, we are supposed to be! We are all rare breeds. I have always liked knowing there was only one of me. I was it! The only me that would ever be! As a child I liked being in my head, by myself and alone when I could be. I am one of six children. Forty-six years later, I still like being alone in my head and with no one else around. 'White Bird' always made me feel deep and more alone, but yet at the same time, I never felt more connected, more capable and more free. This song makes me cry every single time I hear it for all the Good and right reasons.

I was it! The only me that would ever be! ~Dr. Loretta Standley

I find it interesting that this song came to me this morning, after I felt yesterday's Musical DLG™ had called me to the carpet and challenged my level of involvement. I know that my tendency is to be alone in my cage (home or office). I can easily paint the windows black, close the blinds, close the curtains, close the door, lock it, put my phone on silent, turn off the TV, sit here alone, type for hours and before you know it, it's 2:00 PM. I can drive for hours alone across several states without batting an eye. I can stay alone in a hotel and never exit the room. And I can camp alone for days. I am an individual who can sit alone in my cage and grow old. I am also clear that I must experiment and experience Life or I will die. I must participate, become involved and be active in this lifetime. I absolutely have to get out and associate, volunteer, call, connect, hang out, mingle, work with and be physically active on this planet. I am about as North Node Virgo (active) vs. South Node Pisces (loner) as you can get. I cannot allow myself to be "unknown" as the song says.

Folks, I am a very deliberate and purposeful individual. I get what I am required to do in this lifetime. The many things that I have on this website require you to do something on a daily basis because my North Node Virgo is all about daily activity, daily regimen, daily routine. daily health, daily nutrition, daily interactions and daily work ethic. This website is gradually morphing into even more things that are all about routine that you can easily do every single day. If you look along the graphic banner column to the right on this website, you will see the Daily Awakenings, the Daily Horoscopes, the Daily Spiritual Progression Path, the Activities of Daily Living and I just posted a new graphic that takes you to my Daily Yummy Recipes. I will also be adding a section about Food Prepping because I am HUGE on food prepping. And guess which sign rules food and nutrition? VIRGO! Guess which sign rules doctors and healthcare? VIRGO! Even my TYS e-Course has Daily Homework assignments.

So you see, I cannot just sit alone in my cage, I have to fly or I will die and a spiritual death (Pisces) would be worse than a physical one (Virgo). While all of this alone time gives me all of these wonderful ideas, I have to be involved, accept the mission and teach what I have been gifted. After all, doctor means teacher, and this white bird must fly and teach you how to fly too.

WHITE BIRD
by It's a Beautiful Day
[the lyrics are below the video]

White bird,
in a golden cage,
on a winter's day,
in the rain.

White bird,
in a golden cage,
alone.

The leaves blow,
Across the long black road.
To the darkened skies, in its rage
But the white bird just sits in her cage,
unknown.

White bird must fly
Or she will die

White bird,
dreams of the aspen trees,
with their dying leaves,
turning gold.

But the white bird just sits in her cage,
growing old.

White bird must fly or she will die.
White bird must fly or she will die.

The sunsets come, the sunsets go.
The clouds roll by, and the earth turns old.
And the young bird's eyes do always glow.

She must fly,
She must fly,
She must fly.

White bird,
In a golden cage,
On a winter's day, in the rain.

White bird,
In a golden cage alone.

White bird must fly or she will die.
White bird must fly or she will die.
White bird must fly or she will die.
White bird must fly

Last Daily Message, It Goes Without Saying

Even though this morning's Musical DLG™ (Musical Download from God™) was a song that I enjoy because of its catchy and enthusiastic rhythm, I was actually not all that happy with it being the song that woke me up. Paper in Fire by John Mellencamp has a nice pep to it but when you actually listen to the words it's a bit of a downer. Rolling Stone described the Lonesome Jubilee album as, " . . . filled with characters who betray their futures and willfully trivialize their lives by chasing shabby dreams."

The minute this song woke me up I began tapping my foot. Throughout the years, being awoken by a Musical DLGs™, I have learned to just lay there and pay attention to the words and not get lost in the rhythm. After the first stanza I wanted to pop up and get to work because I felt as though I was being told by God that I wasn't working hard enough or that I wasn't producing as much as I was capable. I knew this song, I knew the words, and I knew after the first stanza that I could do more and that my intended purpose by Him (God) was not going to physically manifest without my involvement. Then after the first chorus came the second paragraph and the phrase, "with no involvement". Arrrrrrghhh, I just wanted to slap myself! This is no time for me to be a slacker! I wanted to get up and get to work and make things happen for myself but I made myself lay there and listen. It also reminded me of a male friend of mine who wants to find Love with no involvement (aka commitment) and I always tell this friend that Love will not happen without him, literally. Meaning, nothing will happen without his involvement. By the time the song made it to the third paragraph I knew what was coming. Generation after generation stares ahead and does nothing. Generation after generation does not take that leap of faith with God and with themselves. Generation after generation only does what is required, nothing more, nothing less. Generation after generation the cycle of dreams smolders in the ashtray like paper in fire. This will not be me.

PAPER IN FIRE
by John Mellencamp
[the lyrics are below the video]

She had a dream
And boy it was a good one
So she chased after her dream
With much desire
But when she got too close
To her expectations
Well the dream burned up
Like paper in fire

Paper in fire
Stinkin' up the ashtrays
Paper in fire
Smokin' up the alleyways
Who's to say the way
A man should spend his days
Do you let them smolder
Like paper in fire?

He wanted Love
With no involvement
So he chased the wind
That's all his silly life required
And the days of vanity
Went on forever
And he saw his days burn up
Like paper in fire

Paper in fire
Stinkin' up the ashtrays
Paper in fire
Smokin' up the alleyways
Who's to say the way
A man should spend his days
Do you let them smolder
Like paper in fire?

There's a good life
Right across this green field
And each generation
Stares at it from afar
But we keep no check
On our appetites
So the green fields turn to brown
Like paper in fire

Paper in fire
Stinkin' up the ashtrays
Paper in fire
Smokin' up the alleyways
Who's to say the way
A man should spend his days
Do you let them smolder
Like paper in fire?

Paper in fire
Stinkin' up the ashtrays
Paper in fire
Smokin' up the alleyways
Who's to say the way
A man should spend his days
Do you let them smolder
Like paper in fire?

IT GOES WITHOUT SAYING

Audio'Siyo or Osiyo [Hello in Cherokee]

Last Daily Message, The Walking Dead

Since we just experienced a New Moon in Libra yesterday, Monday, October 12, 2015 this is the perfect time to write an article on how to manifest the perfect relationship. All too often we are looking for someone to rock our world but aren't really sure what that would look like. I have noticed through my clients, those on social media or individuals that I personally know, that they are clear on what they don't want in a relationship, but they aren't clear on what they 'do' want in a relationship. Often times I hear, "I don't want a man/woman who . . . " Over and over again this line is repeated thereby calling even more attention to what they don't want, so much so, that they continue to manifest more of the same. It looks to me if you didn't want something that bad then it would be the last thing you would find yourself talking about, especially repeatedly. For myself, I can tell you that I am absolutely not open to certain types of men, that it goes without saying. Meaning, I don't even have to say what types of men they are because it is True without even saying it. And I sure as heck wouldn't blab it to the Universe on a website or social media to get others thinking about what I don't want. Now that's clear! I would rather have everyone think about what I do want. I'd be workin' that collective consciousness! (winky wink)

If you are single, then you are in a remarkable position to get yourself ready to meet Mr. or Miss Wonderful. Thank God (and I mean that literally, thank Him) that you aren't with anyone right now so you can clean up your act. You will only attract your equal because as we all know birds of a feather flock together and water seeks its own level. You are never going to see robins flying among hawks or grackles flying with eagles. The robins and grackles will have speed as a problem, not to mention the height at which the hawks and eagles soar. Go ahead, tip over a glass of water and watch it quickly level itself out and flood the surrounding plane. That's what we humans do, we level ourselves in relationships to match our surroundings or the people we choose. We level our playing field through relationship drama, antics, choices and needs. We level the surrounding plane and take others with us.

Before you even begin to dive into a relationship, you must be clear about who you are, so you will know what you want. Further, do not bad mouth your dates on social media because your energy had to match theirs in order to make even the slightest connection and for your paths to cross. Either you picked them or you said, "Yes". It's one or the other folks! You are better off taking the awareness inward to see how you can make yourself better to bring yourself UP to a higher level of relationship operation. If you are going to level yourself to any degree, then set the bar higher for who you are, not for who they are. Our partner automatically matches who we are, so you might as well level UP! You can't set the bar so high for them and then not be able to match it yourself. It'll never work! Leveling works high as well as low.

If you are serious about having a mate, here is what you do. Take the time to be single and enjoy being your 'self'. If you wouldn't date you, then why would someone else? And if you can't be alone with you, then why would someone else? Being single and dating yourself doesn't mean go crazy in rowdy bars. You aren't desperate, so don't act like it. When I had a 13 year relationship end (years ago), I didn't date anyone for 6 months afterward. I went places by myself. I ate food I had never tried. I started doing the things again that I truly enjoyed (like camping) that I had not done the entire time I was in that relationship. That was my fault, not his. I own all of the things that I did and did not do because I leveled myself to the relationship. For 6 months I found out what I was made of and just how fun and exciting I really was because I was no longer dialed in to someone else. I really was just being me.

Six months later I was in my office, kicked back in my chair with my feet on the desk. I was looking at my picture of Jesus on the wall and I said to Him, "I'm ready to meet someone. I WANT to meet someone!" He knew what I meant and what I heard back was, "What do you want?" Now folks this is important. As usual, He was very clear and I heard, what I heard. I didn't hear Him say, "What is it you don't want?" I heard, "What do you want?" Being clair-sentient and clair-audient, I respond pretty darn quick to my audible DLGs™ (Downloads from God™). Immediately, if not sooner, I grabbed my journal and started writing. I wrote down the header, "My Perfect Man!" I didn't kick around my thoughts or stare out into space for long periods of time, I just wrote what I wanted. It was about 4:00 PM in the afternoon when I started and closer to 4:30 PM when I finished. I had 87 things on my list that were very specific and positive. It wasn't so much a picky list as it was a specific list. Also, there were no contractions on the list such as; don't, didn't, doesn't, can't, isn't, ain't, won't, couldn't, wouldn't, shouldn't, etc. For instance, one of things on my list said, "He is a non-smoker although I am open to him smoking an occasional cigar and preferably an expensive cigar so that it doesn't stink." I wasn't too hung up on my wording as much as I was hung up on being honest with my answers. "What do you want?" Remember, I was already clear on what I didn't want and that went without saying.

Fast forward to 3.5 hours later. A friend had invited me over for cocktails with her and her husband to see his train set 'choo-choo' around the Christmas tree. My former relationship and I always went to their house just before Christmas to see the train set and have cocktails. It was only going to be the 3 of us that night. Just before I left she called and said that a friend of theirs was coming over as well and that it was not a set-up. I said, "I'm okay if it is and I'm okay if it's not. It's all Good." She giggled and we hung up. When this man walked into their home I could not stand him from the get-go. He was everything I was not used to from my previous relationship. As the night moved on there were so many little things that he would say and do that were on my list. They were crazy, subtle things that were just uncanny. For instance, I have a very sensitive nose and there is no way I would be able to stand a smelly, stinky, farting man. And absolutely no stinky feet! On my list I wrote that this perfect man for me would have clean smelling feet. Yep, it's that important to me. I think it's a South Node Pisces thing (the fins). When the man at my friend's house took off his shoes, I made a smelly face as if his feet stunk and he said, "Oh don't worry, my feet don't stink!" Uncanny things like that kept happening all night long. Folks, when I expect to manifest, I really do expect to manifest it, but 3.5 hours later? Needless to say, I ended up dating the guy. I feel that if you are True to your personal natal chart and what it describes as your perfect mate, then you cannot lose. Two weeks later I could check 85 things off my list. Eleven months later I could still check off 85 things and all but 2 things were still left on that list. 1) That we travel well together and 2) that he Loved me. We never traveled together in that 11 months and we never did fall in Love with each other. It was time to move on.

Fast forward again, without going into too much boring relationship detail, I can tell you that meeting that man, that night, set me up to meeting the man that I am engaged to today. It was all a set up by the Universe that led me straight to my Scorpion King and all I had to do was get clear on what I wanted. I knew that first man was not my man. I knew it, but I had a Good time while it lasted. The man I met after him I knew he was not my man either, but I had a Good time while it lasted too. Sports and being physically active and engaged in sports was very important on my list and it showed up loud with the next man. I wanted a man who was actively involved in sports and in shape. Well, the next man who I called 'Mr. NFL' was an executive with the NFL, he worked out and I got to go to a lot professional football games all over the country and to a couple of Superbowls. (winky wink) Still, I knew he was not my man either. Even though those two men were not my man, they were 'my type'. I get that. Still, looking back, I see how Mr. NFL got me even closer to my Scorpion King (fiance). If you are wondering what I did with that list, I'm sure it's laying around here somewhere in one of my journals waiting for me to pull it out one day when I'm 87 years old to remnisce on all 87 things that I found in my Scorpion King. Incidentally, none of these men had ever smoked, not even an occasional cigar. I guess when I say, "non-smoker" it goes without saying.

Back to your personal natal chart.

In a female's natal chart - the description of the Sun, Mars and the 7th house in the natal chart will describe the perfect man for her. The Sun and Mars are the testosterone (yang) in the chart. It's her pattern of male attraction. So look for any Sun, Mars, 7th house cusp connections to his Moon, Venus and 7th house cusp.

In a male's natal chart - the description of the Moon, Venus and the 7th house in the natal chart will describe the perfect woman for him. The Moon and Venus are the estrogen (yin) in the chart. It's his pattern of female attraction. So look for any Moon, Venus and 7th house cusp connections to her Sun, Moon and 7th house cusp.

If you have a Compatibility Report that I wrote for you, then 'make certain' that you check the connected aspects that dictate your perfect mate -- Sun and Mars vs. Venus and Moon.

The song below reminded me of the whole dating world and how truly jacked up it is when we aren't clear and have so much Love to give. While some of you might create a list and some of you might not, I think it is wise to be clear because the rest goes without saying.

'ROCK ME'

by Steppenwolf

[the lyrics are below the video]



ROCK ME

She asked me maybe I could share her sorrow

For all the men that tried to treat her wrong

Though just a baby, awaiting her tomorrow

It's rock me baby, rock me baby, all night long

She needs an answer to her confusion

Someone to guide her with tenderness

But when she's askin' for a solution

All that she gets, you know, is something like this

I don't know where we come from

Don't know where we're goin' to

But if all this should have a reason

We would be the last to know

So let's just hope there is a promised land

Hang on 'til then

As best as you can

Ev'rybody's ills, you know it fills her with compassion

That's why she tries to save the world alone

She helps the needy in her own fashion

And tries to give them all her own

She needs an answer to her confusion

Someone to guide her with tenderness

But when she's askin' for a solution

All that she gets, you know, is

Something like this

I don't know where we come from

Don't know where we're goin' to

But if all this should have a reason

We would be the last to know

So let's just hope there is a promised land

Hang on 'til then

As best as you can

Rock me baby, rock me baby, all night long

Rock me baby, rock me baby, all night long

Rock me baby, rock me baby, all night long

Rock me baby, rock me baby, all night long

Rock me baby, rock me baby, all night long

Rock me baby, rock me baby, all night long

Rock me baby, rock me baby, all night long

"Now get out there, go place yourself UP!
and practice being you."
