Time Travels Rich with Grounding Goodness
Home again and haven’t had much time to really integrate everything yet, as the last two days upon return have been extremely full. So this is just a brief way of touching in and anchoring back, while seeing how everyone is doing so far this month. I know 2019 has been a doozy for a lot of people and this is an extremely packed energetic month with Solstice approaching and the New Moon Solar Eclipse of Christmas on the way still. You can read more about the energies in Laura’s post from yesterday at the link included. We also went through quite a powerful Full Moon. I was in Scotland for that, which felt particularly key, especially since being there was literally last minute with only days of notice.
Our trip was originally supposed to include London and Paris, but interestingly huge strikes hit Paris on the 5th and did not dissipate. The strike affected transportation and so in fact our Eurostar train tickets were cancelled and there was no way even to fly in. All things are always in divine order, so we just decided to change destination to Scotland – somewhere neither Dave nor I have been.
We’d both been to Paris and London, although many years ago. For me it had been thirty years for Paris and London and a second trip twelve years ago to London and other parts of England including Glastonbury, Avebury, and a couple of other areas including Brighton, as well as a sacred trip to Ireland.
Although Scotland was definitely a place I wanted to visit, it was meant for a brief touch-in now. We only had three days there, but it was enough to know I loved it and would love to return again.
It was interesting that not only were we there for the Full Moon, but also during the big elections taking place in the UK that really are putting into motion a big shift there.
This was a very different trip for me, as the past has seen me always on spiritual trips to sacred areas or very nature-focused journeys. I’ve done city stuff as well, but the majority has not been that and definitely not recently. So this was a really great experience and felt very balancing and grounding.
I still always bring the deeper presence and senses with me, so everything becomes much more than meets the eye, but our main focuses were indulging in incredible vegan food explorations (of which there was tons and made the U.S. look light years behind), enjoying the culture of the cities (we took in several symphonies and orchestra performances in both destinations and enjoyed opera singing at a restaurant where the servers perform in between waiting tables), immersing in the holiday cheer (a favorite for me with everything lit up in splendor and Christmas Markets and festivities at every square), and seeing the main sights of interest to us, which included touristy kinds of things rich in history.
We packed in A LOT in the nine days we were there and we learned which things we like the most and what we would do more of and leave out for future trips. I shared a photo montage of all of the journey via Instagram and Facebook, which included incredible captures of everything we saw and put in our tummies as well. It’s very easy to pop photos up there in my off time, but doing so in blogs is much too time consuming. I hope that if you’re on those platforms you can get a chance to see the photos, as I love sharing the inspiration and energy.
What I do feel inspired to share are some of the photo captures of me at some of my favorite areas that seem to reveal how I felt like a time-traveler and literally did feel as if I was stepping into a different part of myself, as well as had new layers of myself activated simply by being there. I also felt like time stepped outside of time and a parallel reality ripped open that I was walking in the entire trip. I was me, but not me.
It was interesting to me that the minute we stepped from airport to taxi in Scotland, I smacked my skull hard on the roof of the car while getting in. Luckily I didn’t have any issues, although temporarily for a couple of minutes was a painful crack that even knocked my jaw closed bringing teeth to teeth. I didn’t react because I knew I was getting my welcome activation with a crown chakra opening by stepping back here again for the first time this life.
I really love Scotland even though we were mostly only in Glastonbury and one day took a full day countryside tour to get a feel for the outlying magickal areas.
I was definitely swept back into times I’ve experienced there before. The castles and the land are pure magick and the Christmas Market there was just so sweet and made me so happy.
All that we experienced both there and in London was amazing and our last day touring Stonehenge for two hours was a perfect closing day that ended with my getting to be with the bronze statue of Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens. The statue warmly greeted me with rabbits and faeries all around the base. Weeeeeee!
Between the two – Stonehenge and Peter Pan – I was transported into a gentle and soft deepening of my essence. A perfect way to bring closure to the journey and start anew.
I sat at Stonehenge and received visions of the area as a Stargate and felt the subtle continuation of inner awakenings that seemed to be reflected in interesting exchanges with people that took place.
Originally we were going to be seeing a show at the Moulin Rouge in Paris that this year just happened to be titled Féerie (Faery in English), but this was apparently still the plan for me, as unbeknownst to me Dave got us tickets for a symphony in Glastonbury where I learned we’d be listening to The Faery Queen Suite by Purcell. What are the chances of this all going on while I was there? 😉
I have so many friends in England, Ireland and Scotland, but unfortunately this trip I could not connect with anyone as we were very much in need of our own immersion and personal space to experience what was there for us on this much needed vacation, as well as celebratory and exploratory trip. I know I’ll be back, so future trips will definitely have room for connections.
Overall, the trip reiterated to me that a new time is upon me and us as a collective. I hope to post something on the Solstice and it may include an announcement that was part of the confirmation and clarity the trip gave to me.
Until then, I do hope that everyone is doing well and embracing the opportunity of these energies to look within for the true light that is you, despite what is going on around you.
