Hidden Gifts & Treasures
Yesterday Dave came to me with a big smile on his face and when I asked what was up, he pulled from behind his back a giant tangerine.
He said, “Look what I found hidden in our tangerine tree!”
And when he pulled it out it was a huge tangerine, the largest that little tree has produced since living here.
This is quite odd, as tangerines are ready for harvest in February (around the Chinese New Year)…we’re now in mid June. We’d already gotten all of the tangerines earlier this year (the least amount the tree has produced since being here). But here was this gigantic tangerine that suddenly appears, from within the shadows.
It felt really symbolic.
And since they are abundant symbols of luck and prosperity, this felt foreshadowing of recent messages we’ve received and even the reiterating reading we had in Sedona, all culminating around our trust of taking the action we have felt guided to do and the gifts that await us when we do take advantage of these windows presenting themselves.

I didn’t take a photo of this giant tangerine, as since it was hidden, I felt it was to remain as such. But we did enjoy it in the morning smoothie I just made and am drinking right now while writing this before I teach a private Reiki workshop today – imbuing and embodying that miraculous and hidden gift within to birth forward.
Finding this off-season lone and thriving tangerine goes to show you that anything is possible and there truly are multiple realities going on that we can each co-create as we desire, despite what others are doing, what the “norm” is, or what has been believed to be possible up until now.
It’s always wonderful to see the messages in all the gifts around us and this comes with staying present and aware in our moment-to-moment experiences.
Finding the giant tangerine hidden and out of sight feels telling that we are on the right path for us and things are coming to fruition from behind the scenes in more ways than what we can imagine…simply because we are taking the steps, not worrying about the outcome or needing to know the how’s or what it will look like, and simply following our joy and paths.
It also feels symbolic of not being afraid to walk in the dark, to embrace the shadow, be willing to be different and do the “alternative”, and to realize we ARE the Sun and it exists in that place unseen because to know your light, you must also know your dark and realize their partnership in the alchemy of consciousness.
