This is such a fantastic post by Bethany Webster that mirrors my own thoughts and what I feel important to share with others, as many times as needed.
Some of my favorite things she shares:
Transformation isn’t fully real until it takes root in the body.
…the need to reach the final destination was really a defense against the un-processed grief within
Relief from the pain comes from opening to the pain
Our bodies are always in the present moment. Our bodies are always telling us the truth.
We must measure our transformations, not by the number of years we’ve been on the path, the number of books we’ve read, or the teachers we’ve studied with, but by the depths we have gone to in our own process. This is only something only we can know about ourselves. It’s a private kind of integrity. It’s a combination of commitment and surrender. The question really is ‘How can I live in each moment in alignment with what I know to be true?’ and ‘How can my words and actions line up with my deepest truth?’ Sometimes we can feel the hunger for this kind of alignment in our very cells.
Digestion cannot be rushed. It’s done when it’s done. We can imagine concepts as nutritious food that takes time to digest and become integrated into the body.
There is no “Away.”There are no shortcuts. We each must do the work.
…the results of your transformation rest solely with you, because only you can determine how deeply you digest the material and how actively use the roadmap you’ve been given.
You are Nature. Your body has seasons of it’s own.
Thank you Bethany for sharing such a wonderful post ❤
This is turning out to be the best birthday month celebration. So many wonderful gifts, surprises, and blessings abound.
And these are just the icing on the cake, as there are endless blessings I am in awe of each day, from the seemingly tiny, to the obviously large things to be grateful for that are all around me/us every day. Even the fact that we breathe in these temple bodies that are miracles in and of themselves, is a huge blessing often taken for granted. Not to mention we are capable of experiencing the gamut of feelings and possibilities we often judge when they aren’t the ones we deem more valuable. It’s ALL a gift! And it’s all about perspective.
But on top of these wonderful daily blessings it seems birthday celebrating has begun in this month of purification and love.
I just learned that my Garden Tower is on its way, as shipping began today and will arrive this month. So any other backers of the New Garden Tower Project will be excited about this too!
In exactly two weeks I’ll be flying off to Iceland, where I’ll be over my birthday celebrating in Faery style – a long awaited dream manifested by pure intention and synchronous alignment. Yes, dreams do come true! I’ve never done something like this for my birthday, so it feels significant.
Sweet little Cosmo (my little spirited lover bunny) came into my life almost 1 month to the day, before my birthday, mirroring Joy’s (my other little angel) pre-birthday arrival 6 years ago.
A new crystal baby came to me yesterday when I was out getting a crystal for Cosmo (more on that below), after receiving my yearly birthday coupon from a metaphysical store around the corner here that I’ve been connected to for over 20 years.
And major energetic shifting in such an expansive, positive way is taking place, which includes instant manifestation energy in high gear (are any of you also experiencing this?), and exciting new horizons blossoming or getting ready to blossom from seeds planted intentfully.
But one of the most exciting things came yesterday evening, when Cosmo did something absolutely amazing and just truly took my breath away.
Let me back up briefly on what led up to this.
Two days ago, in the afternoon, I was talking to my family on the phone and sharing about Cosmo and how he’s doing, as they call every day to check on him – so sweet! My mom already has his photo in a frame on her special shelf in the family room at their house, next to all the animal soul grandchildren she has/and has had through me and my brother. Neither my brother nor myself will ever have human children in the biological sense, so these are our children/grandchildren/family.
Anyway, I was talking with my brother about other spiritual healing to administer with Cosmo, besides all of the protocol holistically, physically, and energetically I’m doing. We talked about the root cause of spinal/lower back injury and different affirmations and intentions I can say to him and embody for him. Of course, for me saying it isn’t enough…so I have implemented singing them to him. 🙂 and then we talked about crystals and my brother reminded me about a couple of them that are excellent for spinal and back challenges – Selenite and Black Tourmaline. Selenite is also good for the kidneys, which is great since Cosmo had some issues there in the past as well.
I had a Black Tourmaline, so immediately after the call I brought it to him and held it at the base of his spine administering healing. I left it in with him for a while after too.
But I didn’t have Selenite anymore, or couldn’t find it. I remember how amazing Selenite had been in the past when I used it for healing support on people I knew with back/spinal challenges. Knowing I had my birthday coupon for the metaphysical store around the corner, I just knew they would have the perfect Selenite for me.
So yesterday I go into the store with the intention and knowing of finding this Selenite, and perhaps something for myself for my birthday. I looked all over and could find nothing except two Selenite candle holders, but that wasn’t good for doing healing work on his back.
So I asked the woman at the counter if she had any Selenite. She was very sweet and said, “why yes, we had just one left and it should be out there on the floor.” She then added, as she was looking around with me, “someone had come in yesterday afternoon wanting Selenite (same time I had been talking about it with my brother on the phone and put out my intention to get one), and I showed the piece to them and after a while they decided they didn’t want it anymore so I put it back out on the shelf here somewhere. Unless, someone got it last night.”
I smiled while she said this thinking about instant manifestation and how this Selenite I knew was for Cosmo and when I’d made that declaration I’d find one at the store, things aligned to make it remain there until I arrived.
We ended up finding the Selenite in a more hidden place on the shelf, and again I smiled, knowing it had been saved for Cosmo.
And when I saw it, it was perfect! She handed it to me and I said, “yep, that’s the one! I knew there was one here waiting for me.” And I told her about how it was for my bunny.
It’s about 2 and a half inches, oval in an egg shape, but smooth and flat like a river stone, making it perfect to hold in your palm and place on the area or run it smoothly over it.
I then was called to look in this case behind me and there I saw my birthday gift – a Lapis Lazuli Cosmic Egg! So cool both Cosmo and I would have our own connected Cosmic Eggs!
I’ve been very drawn to Lapis now for a while (something new for me only in the last year and half or so) and to find an egg was so cool, as I love the energy and symbolism of the egg. The Lapis egg feels so perfect for this time period in my life, but the piece itself is so beautiful and like a galaxy swirling in primordial eternity. There’s something very important about this Lapis egg I feel, for me.
But I haven’t gotten to the exciting part yet.
So, after feeling the perfection of all of this, I went home and cleansed and charged the Selenite and brought it to Cosmo. He immediately sniffed it and then sat completely still absorbing the energy as I ran it along his back and spine where the injury is. I just did this for a couple of minutes, not wanting to overwhelm him with all the energies he’s receiving.
But what happened about an hour later was magick!
I saw him out of the corner of my eye from my desk, moving around in his pen. It almost appeared like he rolled quickly on his back and then flipped himself up. And then next thing I know he had sat himself upright ALL ON HIS OWN!
He has NEVER done that! I always sit him up to help him balance and get used to that, then he’s able to sit that way a while, or maybe even move around a bit that way. But he FULLY sat himself upright and began cleaning himself on the side that is always laying on the ground and that he drags. He has never been able to bend that way and clean himself, WHILE balancing himself upright. But he did this and was able to hold it for a few minutes. Then he seemed to lose balance, but sat himself back up again, and again…He did this three times in front of me, able to get up on his own and continue grooming himself, bending on this weakened side.
Whether it was the Selenite, or all efforts combined so far, it was truly a miracle!
He hasn’t done it again since, but I believe with continued, consistent efforts, we’re going to get there. He DID last night, after his physical therapy time, lay straight and sprawled out balanced, like he also has NEVER done and the way bunnies like to lay. So indeed things are shifting and THIS is the most amazing birthday gift!
I was so excited, I just had to share.
Here’s a VERY short video (but I thought it worth sharing his progress) of one of Cosmo’s moments caught on camera from one of the first days we started his cart therapy – so literally just a few days from coming home with me. I only got a few seconds of him moving around before he got tuckered out, but this was also after his cart session, so I think he deserved a rest. It provides just a hint of his progress for you. When it goes black, I had put the camera down to help him back up, but he was tired, as you can see. Still wiggling those little legs around though!! I call him the wiggle worm 😉
He’s actually gone much longer than this on his own, but this shows you how he’s progressing hugely from being fully paralyzed!! WEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

A great message to ignite your inner fire and a message I have received as well in my own life since the end of last year, which I have been following – this is the year and time to do the things you really desire and that mirror the essence of who you are. Don’t let anything or anyone stand in your way, including yourself 😉
So, as Lee shares:
What are you ready to leave behind this year?
What do you want to create?
How are you going to show up in your life?
It’s okay to want to experience more…but you need to know what that more is that you want to experience.
You can keep dancing and changing in your life if you allow it to happen.
Yes, you CAN dive in and have your own space…everything is all possible and will shift along the journey…but NOW is the time to decide what YOU want.
What will you choose?
These are simply magickal in every way…divine portals in the woodlands of Southern France. Thank you Shay for sharing these with me…you always know what speaks to my heart!
You can view more different images of these beautiful organic sculptures created by Spencer Byles here:
And for more information, here’s Jenny Zhang of http://www.mymodernmet.com sharing about Spencer Byles’ creations:
Deep in the woods of southern France, artist Spencer Byles transformed the forest into a mysterious wonderland through a series of spectacular, organic sculptures. Byles spent a year immersed in the woodlands of La Colle sur Loup, Villeneuve-Loubet, and Mougins for this ambitious project. Surrounded by flora and fauna, the sculptor used only cables and natural, found materials to create his stunning, large-scale works of art.
According to Byles, many people come across his sculptures by chance in the woods. Met with the sight of towering, woven structures and suspended symbols made of twined branches, the viewer may question whether the mysterious installations were formed naturally, assembled by human hands, or left in the forest by supernatural forces.
The ephemeral nature of Byles’ creations is integral to his work, as each piece exists in its completed state for only as long as the elements permit. The sculptor says, “The temporary nature of my sculptures is an important aspect of my experiences and understanding. I feel my sculptures are only really completed when nature begins to take hold again and gradually weave its way back into the materials. At this point it slowly becomes part of nature again and less a part of me.”
A GOLDEN COMPASS
Forget every idea of right and wrong
Any classroom ever taught you
An empty heart, a tormented mind,
Unkindness, jealousy and fear
Are always the testimony
You have been completely fooled!
Turn your back on those
Who would imprison your wondrous spirit
With deceit and lies.
Come, join the honest company
Of the King’s beggars –
Those gamblers, scoundrels and divine clowns
And those astonishing fair courtesans
Who need Divine Love every night.
Come, join the courageous
Who have no choice
But to bet their entire world
Indeed, God is Real.
I will lead you into the Circle
Of the Beloved’s cunning thieves,
Those playful royal rogues –
The ones you can trust for true guidance –
Who can aid you
In this Blessed Calamity of life.
Look at the Perfect One
At the Circle’s Center:
He Spins and Whirls like a Golden Compass,
Beyond all that is Rational,
To show this dear world
Everything in Existence
Does point to God.
* For me God is the Universe, Nature, Beingness, All That Is, Collective Consciousness, Earth and Cosmos…Eternal and Boundless Love – extending far beyond any borders of religion, faith, and human constructs.
If it wasn’t enough to love Icelanders for their belief in Elves and the Faery realm and their “honoring of sovereignty of both land and soul” (as Laura has pointed out many times), now they are about to build the first temple for public worship to Thor, Odin, and Frigg! Construction is beginning this month to create “the island’s first major temple to the Norse gods since the Viking age.”
You can read the article here: Iceland to Build First Temple to Norse Gods Since Viking Age
I can’t tell you how excited I am to be heading to Iceland in just 18 days to celebrate my birthday! OMGOODNESS! It seems so surreal.
It also seems auspicious that the temple will be underway while I’m there.
And being that I never do anything major or special for my birthday, there just seems to be something very essence-important to this adventure ahead that I’m taking by myself for the first half and then having my Faery friend, fellow tattoo aficionado, and Europe’s best-selling raw food author Kate Magic meeting up with me for birthday fun! Iceland is her favorite place on Earth, and I have a Faery-feeling it will be mine too. 😉
Curious to see what will be activated and how I will return.
