if they aren't already there, then create them ! its easy, just bring a gift or two and offer them up to the forest spirits, the little people, and those who steward the land. give thanks for all of Nature that grows, and listen to her voice. for all of Nature is alive and speaking
I love the Spring time, when so much is still sleeping. When you can tip toe thru the forest, and start to awaken life! (i must be a sprite !) The forest is still moist and juicy, from winters rain .The spark brings life , inspiration, heat , and spirit.
Burning frankinsence or tree resin , reminds me that the temple is within us, and we can create that peaceful sanctuary here on Earth. As Above So Below. As within , As without. <3
go into the woods.......
The Quartz Palace was once filled with little homes and doorways, but much has been removed from the trail. its up to us to bring the magic back, adding a touch of our effort & beauty , little by little .....
The Angel remains ! to Light up the way.....
I couldnt decide which path to take, both felt so good!
So I flipped a coin and gift to the forest ......
(in the past i did not feel that coins were a good gift, however , energy is energy, and this gift could be used for trail maitenence etc...:)
I was led to a little patch of magic ! life blossoming and blooming and bursting forth from the grassy banks !
ohhhh sooo beautiful , I found my self some Lil Nature to chill with for the rest of the early spring afternoon.
Hoooray! Time to Celebrate ! Spring is here !
In a moment the magical Bonnie Jean whisped me away into the beauty of her heart and the reflection of who we are. From above we are able to gain the birds eye view and wear our wings once more as we soar into the heavens. Ha Ha, it all just seems to make more sense from up here!
it was the first time id been back since the last time she magically whisped me away last summer time , with these handsome Chilean boys....and into a hidden lake in the woods. I love you BJ . Heres to more adventures in Nature to come ! More opportunities (and more buff turkey vultures reminding us to show up and be all we are! )
Thank you Mother Earth & Father Heaven for this beauty you bestow
Feeling so full of nourishment from the last 3 days off, in the sun, and connecting with some beautiful wise women to open up the perspective. Thank you, Barb, Bonnie Jean, Celine Bean, My Mama Turner, and Dawn Dancing Otter. After hours of conversation , laughs, and lessons with each of these sisters, I m now back in the hermit cave , but with more clarity and there is sweet silence in the renewed mind .Thanks for all that outside time ! Now time to go back inside .
More on the Faerie trail adventures tomorrow....to be continued...... <3
met a woman along this path tonight, just after the setting sun. i spoke to her about barefoot walking meditations in the forest, ocean jumps (mermaid styles with just our bottoms if we wish ) , collecting sea weed, and wild journeys to free our inner child. just then an Eagle flew overhead. and now have someone signed up for this workshop that i am now being held accountable to offer . haha. ive done the childrens journeys, and now its coming time to serve the women in my community. alright , ready set go. thank you virgo moon reflections, (and virgo in my north node) its time to start serving and apply my pisces's (south node) watery dreams into reality , on the earth.
A March on Valentines Day for Our Indigenous Sisters
Once you are done taking care of your needs & awoken your Inner Divine, thru self care and love, its time to start serving others
I have deeply learned in all the years of human service ( the airline i was employed with was even called "Sky Service"! ) And as a Virgo, with service service service as the focus , I finally realized, unless i took good care of myself first, then i was no good to any one else.
Growing up with a Virgo mother as well, i could always see my mother selflessly caring for others. But sadly, she would become depleted as she put others before herself.
So learning the Self Love thing is huge for most people, especially many women, who are programmed to be people pleasers in society. (.......this could be an entirely seperate blog....... :)
So back to service. Where to bring this Love Energy?
I was so glad to hear the annual march for the missing and murdered Indigenous Sisters would be held on February 14th.
What a way to take all the love energy and send it to a greater cause. Bringing attention to an over looked crisis, as well as healing and comfort to the families in pain.
I even stepped afoot those parliament buildings steps for the first time, since living in Victoria , to sing with the other woman warriors a song to hold up our strength. What a victory feeling to be amongst other wild women upon those colonial grounds and reclaiming our power
we humans got it all wrong.
this is only one kind of love.
although this kind of Love is nice, and Magical indeed , and a special gift,
it is only one kind . and is one that is only temporary.
the mirage and illusion eventually fade away, and unless we understand unconditional love, and self love, we may be left standing feeling very alone.
Valentines Day can bring up these kinds of feelings for many people.
especially if we are waiting for a date, or for some extravagant plans, or to be someones special someone.
we must be our special someone.
we must fully embody self love and love for the divine within.
as well as brotherly/sisterly love
and for our fellow human beings.
and the Divine within each one of us.
we must remember to practice acts of Self Love
and treat ourselves to something special
(as if there was a Divine Being living inside us!)
You Are Amazing ! You Are a Daughter or Son of God! Wow! That makes You Special . Royalty Really , So honor that Divinity.
some of the best ways you can show yourself you care ~
1. ~write your self a love letter
from these 3 beings that dwell with in you~
a Father God perspective,
a Mother God perspective
and then from your Inner Child's perspective.
let yourself know how proud you are of you
and forgive yourself for any hu man short comings!
2.~ eat some chocolate.
this is a gift from the plant Gods.
enjoy it guilt freee and give alot of gratitude
to the earth, the farmers and little hands that put it together.
better yet bless your own hands
and make some chocolate treats yourself
from raw cacao beans.
there is enough info out there on the nutritional benefits of it.
and let the Oxytocin flow (the "love connection" neurotransmitter that is released from ingesting cacao, breast milk, THC, as well as new romantic relationships)
3. ~ bathe
sea salts, essential oils, candles . romance yourself !
en~joy a ritual bath with flowers .
depending on the season ~gather them wild if you can
(my favorites are honeysuckle, wild rose, and snowdrops, and lady slipper)
flowers contain the sex parts of the plants.
awaken the sensuality within your self thru Nature
bask in the peace and the bliss from this.
4. ~ make yourself a magical tea~
Oat straw Latte (make a strong infusion of the herb then add steamed basmati rice or almond milk) for deep relaxation, inner warmth , and to feel like you are as a happy as a child being rocked in a cradle.
or if you are headed out to share this new found inner Divine Love, and want some extra pizazz, try some Wild Rose tincture in your bullet proof coffee. (recipes to come soon, as well as tincture for purchase June 2016.
Happy Valentine's Day to all ! Here's to the highest frequency in all Love ~ romantic love, self-love, friendship and brotherly/sisterly love
IMBOLC ~ A CELTIC CELEBRATION OF THE COMING OF SPRING~ INSPIRATION ~ POETRY ~ AND WHATEVER PASSIONS ARE BREWING FROM WITHIN !
This is a day where the Celtic TRiple Goddess is tradtionally celebrated throughout Ireland. When the Christians, and old st Patrick chased the last of the Druids ( aka 'snakes') off the Island, Brighid was one of the few Goddesses that was kept alive (in belief) , and was celebrated by the church as a holy woman or saint. The Snow Drop Flower was one of her symbols. It is one of the first to pop up during this time of year!
juicy and delicious is the morning dew that slips down off this flower. It is a favorite essence of the little peoples and elementals!
i can imagine to them, that this is like a flowery milk shake that they sprite up quickly in the morning in anticipation for!
So just like a morning Sprite, i arose early to gathering the flowers , along with the mornings dew, to make up a delicious salt and mineral flower bath . The lakes are still a little cold this time of year for frolicking, so I must bring Nature into my house <3 !
