I’ve shared that our journey is taking a new turn and that this would involve a bitter sweet closure to our Magick Bus time, as we herald in a new era of adventure. That means that we are saying goodbye to our beloved home on wheels that has seen us through over a year of incredible change, immense beauty, and powerful experiences, and are making her available for the next loving family that is ready for their own magickal journey.
If anyone is interested in this lifestyle, has been thinking about heading off on the adventure of a lifetime, have secretly been dreaming about it, really want to create change, move energy, and reconnect with yourself, Nature, and what’s of deepest value to you, then this may be an opportunity for you and perhaps the Magick Bus will align with your essence and dream vision for the highest good of all concerned.
Whether you want to full time it or are interested in getting your feet wet and trying it out or having the option of this lifestyle part time, this might be opportunity knocking.
We’ve been so busy settling into our new place and making the transition, had family and then friends visiting, that I’ve only now had chance to post this.
Here is a link to her listing and if anyone has questions, you can direct them to the “Contact Seller” area below the specs:
Or, if you know of someone interested, please feel free to pass it along.
I know several people have been asking about her since I posted she would soon be available so I’m curious to see who she will align with.
We’re offering free deliver within 250 miles of Carson City, Nevada.
We actually were living in Southern California when we purchased her from her owner who was based in Arizona and drove her back.
The same happened when I sold my Toyota Highlander Hybrid and someone flew down from Northern California to purchase her and drove her home.
So, we understand that if something is meant for you and all things light up and align, that where ever you’re located will not be an issue and has a way of working itself out, but we want to help out in any way we can to make it more convenient if needed as well.
We’re currently based in Lake Tahoe, NV with expansive visions on our evolving life ventures, which may again at some point include another RV home for shorter trips in between all of what may evolve.
We love the lifestyle and this form of travel, so it feels like it will be a part of our lives again.
But for now are hunkering down, for the most part, for winter and staying focused on anchoring in the new.
I’ve shared about the amazing things that our RV lifestyle offered us in this post here, which I wrote in the beginning after only about 2 months, as we/I had already experienced the positive change from the get-go:
And indeed the time spent was like lifetimes of huge processing and shift-leaps in just a matter of over a year, but everything I shared in the above blog still holds true.
What I’d like to add is how powerful nomadic, mobile tiny home living has been in moving energy big time. It’s like lifetimes of cycles have been processed and released.
The adventures and beauty we’ve encountered were more than we could have imagined and fuel my creative heart. It’s also provided us opportunity to explore and experience places in a way that has been conducive to our being able to truly know where the land calls to us and what aligns with our essence for our future home(s). We’ve been able to clarify what we do and don’t like, what we can and can’t live without, and to feel the resonance of finding those places that light our souls aglow.
This journey has connected me with my deepest soul passions, brought forth my soul song signature, gave me the extra precious, quality time I wanted with my beloveds and many things in my life, and has shared with me the vision of where my future is headed by realizing what’s most important to me.
There are so many gifts we’ve received from the Magick Bus lifestyle.
And while there are also challenges of RV living, that’s simply the nature of anything.
For us, the freedom, flow, and return has far outweighed any obstacles. If anything, each obstacle has presented a deepening to our gifts, greater harnessing of our personal power, and more conscious growth.
It will soon be a year that we’ve been living in the Magick Bus – my time flies when you’re soaring through shifts – and during that time much has evolved including some alchemically poignant experiences that were markers for both walking into and creating a new era. I’ve experienced literal near death, the transition of one of my beloveds, ancient remembering, peaceful embodiment, widening perspectives, realization of personal truth, a new level of alchemy initiated, shedding of more layers of skin, danced with cosmic forces of shadow and light, began a new creative path, deepened into sound as my harmonic resonance, heard the call of the sacred areas that align with my soul, and so much more.
It’s been potent indeed!
And as I shared in another recent post, “It’s an ever-flowing evolution of creative execution requiring constant, increasingly conscious presence to hear the voice within.”
Nothing ever “arrives,” but continues to morph in reflection to continued expansion beyond limiting versions of today’s ideas and beyond duality into multi-reality potentials that release definition.
This adventure we’ve been on has had several purposes, but most importantly to literally move energy in a rapid and deep way, which it indeed has.
It’s been a journey of surrender, vulnerability, lifting of veils, stepping into greater personal power, and expansion.
Much more than I have even shared with words and photos via my adventure blogging here that documented the journey, as it’s just not possible.
Things continue to spiral and with shifts embraced, adjustments to mirror and flow with the current streams of energy have, and continue to take place.
I know from what I’m hearing and experiencing from the collective that this is really proving to be a moment-to-moment fluctuation of different energy currents to navigate, which can be unnerving, confusing, knocking off balance, and challenging to say the least.
Or, fun if you’re able to really enjoy learning a new dance partnership with the current energies inviting you and the constant morphing quality to things right now while not getting fixated and attached, as everything rapidly transforms.
While we’re keeping from locking into anything and allowing the energy to move and form naturally to support new opportunities and visions streaming in, I can share some of what is happening in a general and symbolic level.
We are currently heading out of Canada sooner than originally planned (originally traveling another nearly 2 more months through) and will be entering back into the States on the 31st and last day of August (that’s tomorrow and seems symbolic) through North Dakota with the International Peace Garden as our entrance bridge, which feels quite fitting to move through a harmony zone between two “worlds” – Canada and the U.S.
Then we’ll continue traveling and touching down in several states along the way like Minnesota, Wisconsin, etc. getting a taste of this area of the country, and culminating with a very special, private, and intimate Equinox celebration and activation with Laura and her David in a sacred place, immediately heading to where the land has called us to start creating the next phase of our lives, right after.
We’ll of course be exploring what the areas we travel through have to offer along the way to our landing zone, integrating that into the creative manifestation process, no doubt.
We’ll then be focused on creating the next phase of our lives solely.
This will involve purchasing and setting up a new home in one of the places closest to our hearts, which will be an evolving process and may morph and expand into more than we originally thought to incorporate everything desired and necessary to our paths.
And during this time the Magick Bus will be our base until our home is in order, then we will likely be saying goodbye to it.
However, this doesn’t mean our adventure is over. It is simply evolving and taking a new turn on the spiral of life.
We are exploring varying possibilities, which may include things like purchasing a much smaller Magick Bus II and journeying sporadically once we get set up, or simply traveling without a Magick Bus.
The possibilities are endless!
Either way, we would be navigating the landing zones of exploration by very specifically focused areas of intent and calling, rather than everything in between.
This to include some international travel that’s come up, including a long stint in Australia in the Spring of 2017 due to an important event invitation for Dave in relation to his book.
So, there is much evolving and much excitement ahead, not to mention I am looking forward to creating a new sacred haven and sanctuary to continue with my creative projects and new ventures that I envision.
And that’s where my next phase of feeling I need to withdraw external energies comes in, in order to fuel all the things I/we need to create and anchor in.
This may seem abrupt, but I’m going to be offline beginning September 1st – the New Moon Eclipse in Virgo and our first full day back in the States – for a good majority and unknown length of time, and will touch in only if absolutely called, which means the rest of the journey I won’t be documenting anymore.
This means I won’t be updating via Facebook either and newsletters are coming to an end for an unknown period of time.
I may pop up with an update or channeled inspiration, via my blog solely, when you least expect it, but that would be in alignment with what’s already anchored, rather than the process, and I’m not going to place any time frame or limitation on it.
Like with everything, it will organically create itself.
I just wanted to put it out there so that you don’t think something happened to me or that something is wrong, like some people thought the first time I took my 3 month sabbatical, although much IS happening. 😉
This feels more resonant, as things shift way too much and with such speed that it doesn’t make sense, nor supportive all around, to update until things anchor into manifestation more solidly.
Plus, I want this part of my life to be created with as little commingling and energetic interference than we already all share simply by being part of the collective experience unfolding.
And, I also need this time to utilize an early, clear, and focused hibernation for the creation of all of this on a personal, partnered, and collective level.
Thank you so much for all of the loving support and understanding that you share so generously.
Sending out much love and wishing everyone a creatively empowered journey, an alchemically potent New Moon Solar Eclipse tomorrow, Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on the 16th, and Equinox, as well as a peacefully flowing end of 2016.
I’ve had several friends recently ask about our upcoming whereabouts to see if things align to connect in person so I thought I’d share our itinerary between now and end of October to help out. We’ve just left Colorado and are in Wyoming with a continued journey onward through Montana, parts of Canada (we’ll be returning two more times here), down through Michigan, and a stop in Indiana to visit with my bestie. I do have the rest of the proposed plan to take us throughout North America over the course of the next couple of years, but will post as it evolves.
We’ve had three visits so far by family, friends, hosted a private retreat, and about to receive our fourth guest today – a sweet friend who has been inspired by our journeys and made her own abbreviated version of a similar path right behind us, now catching up with us to hang out for a while. I’ve also been able to connect with one dear friend while in Sedona.
We aren’t always able to make the connections happen, but I always know that everything has its divine timing and what does take place is perfect.

I’ve spent the last few weeks mapping out our travel route, researching places and things to see that call to our hearts, and booking RV parks from Colorado to Banff – Lake Louise, Alberta after closing out our 6 weeks in Utah – all guided by intuition, inspiration, and seasons, as we journey forward. I share the experience as a collective offering and share our timelines in case it aligns for friends and family in the areas to connect while we’re passing through. I’m so excited to say that after 24 bookings and a lot of “blessings” on our side, we were able to get into all the areas we wanted, despite the busy peak Summer season (another reason we booked ahead and something to think about if you’re a nomadic RV full-timer).
Since we have four animal children and still work while we explore, we have certain requirements for the types of places we stay, needing full hook ups and good cell and wi-fi reception. These are also reasons we need to book things ahead and can’t just fly on complete whim.
There’s a balance between intuition and discernment in our lives and so this does take a bit of preparatory work on our parts to ensure all our needs are met and supported.
While we don’t need much, we still do have basic requirements.
And for now, we’re not needing to stay more than a couple weeks tops in an area, as we are wanting to get the lay of the land everywhere we can at the start, while also following an internal and seasonal guiding force.
Later, after we’ve explored in general, we can then decide on the spots we may want to return to and spend longer durations at.
Everyone has their own way with this nomadic thing and living full time in an RV. Some people stick to a couple of favorite spots only. Some stay in each spot for long durations. Some go to remote areas and travel off-grid. And others may create their own balance of everything like we are.
We are booked from now through August 7th and soon will book the conclusion of Summer , so we’ll be all set.
I’ve also spent time mapping out our general travel route, state by state and area by area, of the continent. So it will be easy to get the rest going now that we have the plan in vision for the next couple of years.
Again, we’re exploring everywhere of interest and calling, while getting a general scope of North America and seeing all of the natural beauty and local color, while we hone in on our landing spot at the end of the journey.
So far, we’ve nailed it in terms of time spent in each area and always leave a place fully satisfied that we’ve fulfilled both our desires and callings there.
If you’ve been following along, I basically share a post daily (this could change as I get busier with my projects now) and have provided insights, photos, and ideas for those of you interested in the areas we travel to, or who simply want to integrate the energies along with us.
I am feeling a sense of relief and closure with the journey we’ve just concluded and a lot of things I’ve completed including our plan, so I’ll be back at it full force with my creative projects.
Since this journey is about moving the energy in our lives in a big way, exploring the beauty of North America, doing sacred work where ever we land, deepening into our essence, focusing on new projects and creative endeavors for the next phase of our lives, AND finding our next home, we also spend time feeling out the energy, receiving, and literally looking at the areas, land, and homes to see where we’re drawn to most.

I finally had time to post this commissioned Magick Crystal Wand after a busy time of late and it felt like a perfect one to share as closure to these custom pieces, for now, and the collective energy at large. Standing at exactly 21 inches – the tallest of all to date, but femininely intricate and graceful in its presence – I call this one “The Illuminator”, as it brings to light and clarity the truths within to create alchemy. There is a white feather flame at top that helps one journey through the complex layers and worlds of both Shadow and Light, to transmute them. In some way you could also call it the “Shadow Walker” or “Transmuter” – potent indeed.
I’ll include all the feathers and crystals that have been woven and channeled into this Magick Crystal Wand below, but here are some generals about the wand’s energy.
Although it walks the worlds of both Light and Shadow, overall it carries an essence of lightness and the message that one’s journey can be a graceful one. This wand has the most feathers of any to date I’ve created – 14 total – which mirrors its new guardian who walks with birds always and has many bird spirit guides supporting her journey. She and I mirror many synchronicities with this and share dream journeying with our bird friends and more.
I love the white feather flame at top that really sets the tone of energy for the entire wand being a journey of illumination and carried on the wings of grace. They come together, focusing this energy, at the wand’s top Tibetan Quartz Crystal that very delicately sits atop the natural points of the wood that hold it like delicate Faery fingers.
There is also a Tibetan Quartz down below as well….”as above so below.” They also compliment one another, as the top one is clear throughout except for the darker area (characteristic of a Tibetan Quartz) at the bottom, and the bottom double terminated one is mostly dark with a couple of areas that are light (including its top point).
Both demonstrating that Light and Dark are both present in everything.
I also continue with the theme of “as above so below” with the two Amethyst that sit both at top and bottom – spiritual enlightenment accessed and anchored through both journeys of Light and Dark. The top one has a spiral vortex emanating out in gold wire (the wire of choice used throughout this creation) and the bottom one is criss-crossed with an anchoring “x” of gold wire below.
There are actually 7 spirals down the shaft in total – representing the 7 Charkras – some tiny/small and others larger.
Below the top Amethyst there is then about 3 inches of clear Quartz and Turquoise “rain” I’ve created to mirror the energy of a dream its guardian had about Feather rain, but also to add a mirroring and both Water and Air elements for the integration and transmutation process at the heart of healing.
The energy is then anchored at the bottom with a much larger, triangular Turquoise with large spiral of gold below it.
The wood of this wand is light in color to continue with that “lightness” theme and overall there is much intricacy in the design.
I feel like the wand itself at any moment can take to flight with all of the bird energy, and in general really feels as though you can “rise above” things from a different perspective on the “wings” of its energy.
The hanging Feathers are floating on Robin’s Egg Blue satin cording (to match the Turquoise) wrapped in gold wire.
Another stunning Being I’m honored to have channeled into manifestation.
Here are the Feather and Crystal energies included:
5 White Goose Feathers at top to create the Feather Flame (supplied by me)– The Goose and its feathers embody loyalty, forging ahead with bravery and confidence, teamwork and comradery, protection, clear communication, determination, dedication, fellowship, fidelity, fertility, the balance of knowing when to lead or follow, compassionate keepers of the community and embody the sacred circle and sanctity of the cycles of life, astute navigation, discernment of life path and choices, teamwork, protection, and committed responsibility. Geese never leave one of their own behind for any reason. They will stay with the sick and injured until they are either well again, or to support them as they transition.
2 Osprey Feathers (1 mostly white with faint touches of tan at top at the front of the Goose Feather Flame and 1 white and brown at the bottom laying on top of the Seagull feather – both supplied by new guardian) – mastering the conscious and unconscious. Osprey are also symbols of the Sun (solar worship), royalty, illumination, visionary power, sovereignty, vigilance, Egyptian symbol of the soul, honing the senses, precise timing, and keen sight to see through illusions and to hunt in the waters of emotion. For more on Osprey please see Mastering the Conscious & Unconscious
3 Seagull Feathers (2 Norwegian Seagull Feathers supplied by its guardian – the big dark and light ones at back – and 1 lovely white and brown mottled one at bottom that I found, under the Osprey Feather) – These feathers bring the winds of new heart freedom, personal authentic power, creative self expression, and joyous new perspective to breathe in, ride, and navigate these constantly fluctuating energy streams with perseverance and vision to more clearly see the opportunity and purpose within everything.
Juvenile Hawk Feather hanging from right on top of Pigeon Feather (both supplied by me) – Awareness, perspective, perseverance, endurance, sharp insight, truth, visionary power, guardianship, strength, initiative, decisiveness, creativity, messenger (often of change), caution, maneuvering, leadership. Hawk’s meaning teaches us to be observant and to pay attention to what we may overlook. This could mean a talent we don’t use, a blessing for which we haven’t expressed gratitude, or a message from the universe. The hawk has keen eyesight, it is about opening our eyes and seeing that which is there to guide us. Hawk awakens vision and inspires us to a creative life purpose.
Black with Gray tip (love that symbolism) Pigeon Feather (from the Dove family) hanging on right under Juvenile Hawk Feather (both supplied by me) – Pigeon and Dove both carry the same symbolism of peace and love, but also carry clear vision and dream messages that provide glimpses into things coming and confirm you are “on path”, divinity at work, blessings coming, opening mind and heart, healing, gentle self-nurturing, surrender and release, embrace the integrity of your natural self and purity of your creative spirit to nurture imagination and follow your own true path, as you cultivate hope for the new. The “between times,” but also heralds how the physical and spiritual are more rapidly merging with the thinning of veils that arrive with your willingness to see more clearly.
Raven Feather (supplied by new guardian) hanging on left under Green Hahns Macaw Feather (supplied by me via a friend’s Macaw) – deep mystery, intelligence, wisdom, knowledge, knowing, cunning, trickster, curiosity, truth revealing, creativity, intuition, insight, unconventional, unpredictable transformation, magick, shape-shifting….
Green Hahns Macaw Feather (supplied by me via a friend’s Macaw) hanging on left on top of Raven Feather – wise teacher of the power of your words, communication, how to express your truth, voice of the Cosmos and your inner voice, clarity, truth, reflection, manifestation, spell-work, color magick, the exotic, observation…..green carrying some fun and lightness and bringing the energy of the Heart Chakra and Heart’s Joy, as well as Nature and Earth harmony
2 Tibetan Quartz – help to live a life of sacredness and focus energy to the origin of things to be drawn out and healed. Tibetan Quartz, said to be one of the twelve Master Crystals, is also wonderful for dream recall, inducing total centering, and producing an energy conducive to channeling of higher information. To learn more about Tibetan Quartz please visit my article: “OM” Vibration Tibetan Quartz ~ Perfect Grounding with Expansion Crystal
Multiple Clear Quartz – master healer, harmony, clarity, supports psychic abilities, healing, amplifies energy and thought, as well as effects of other crystals, releases, stores, absorbs, regulates energy, draws away negative energy, neutralizes, balances, revitalizes, cleanses, enhances, deep soul cleanser, etc.
2 Amethyst – Increases nobility, spiritual awareness, opens crown, psychic abilities, inner peace and healing, calmness, healing of body, mind and soul, positive transformation, protection, meditation, balance, relieve stress, communication, opens intuition, supports sobriety, helps with disorders, enhances memory, focus, and motivation
Multiple Turquoise – Purification, serenity, protection, wisdom, balance, strength, friendship, love, positive thinking, sensitivity, creative self-expression, balances and aligns chakras, calming, healing, communication.
I love this image, which a sweet friend of mine had sent me a few months ago. It is so reflective of my journey and life, the magickal realm I live in always, and also that theme of “following the White Rabbit” I’ve posted about. But more so, captures the “essence” of my life with these magickal beings and how they’ve supported my portal journeys into new realms of experience.
I’ve been thinking about the changes in my life and how nearly all of the biggest ones have taken place when bunnies have been a part of it.
My leaps mirroring their hops.
I’m at another juncture of shifts so it’s no wonder Astrid is here with me now.
I’ve been focusing on finishing off things to make clear way for the new, did my big 13 day cleanse (interestingly, but not surprisingly, I have not gained back all the old energy that needed shedding so that I move forward without the “weight” of the past), and have been keeping busy with a lot of activity right now (many friends visiting, nature outings, and events) while helping her to integrate and anchor in so that we would both be ready and aligned for the next part of the journey together – all perfectly aligned with the time she has needed.
In a few days I’ll be getting back to completing my book – yay! which I knew she would be helping with now that she’s feeling grounded here.
Seems, once again, my bunnies keep aligning with major Cosmic shifts and portals, as we’ll be entering the 8-8 Lion’s Gate here shortly and the big August Eclipse Gateway. No surprise I’ll be completing the book during all of this…will be fun to see just how exactly it aligns.
Zephyr, whom you may remember as the bunny I was going to adopt, but couldn’t because of circumstances being better to support him where he is for now, had originally been, and will also continue, helping with the writing, as I work with bunnies telepathically, even if from afar.
Although I’ve sent him love and have continued working through the sadness of his not being physically here (another element integrating during all of this), he has been relatively quiet in his contentment with the bunny supporting him where he is…also awaiting my return to writing and all of us integrating and anchoring for the next leg of our work together. He has also been an anchor at the rabbit rescue – SaveABunny – for much to come.
I’m so grateful to have my team together and excited to finish the very end of my book – not much left to go!
I was told to wait on the very last part because of this integrating time needed with Astrid and the shifts with everything so that we could work on it harmoniously together.
This book has been writing itself and so it has not been a daily hunkering down to complete it, as might be the process for some writers, but rather a journey of flowing with the energies and only working on it when the windows/portals of opportunity and alignment gave the green light.
I am listening and aligning, while also staying on top of doorways opening and closing and it’s been incredible to witness the life shifts in all ways that have been weaving along with it all and shifting so much with every part of it. There is a timing and unfolding needing to both be taken action on, but also co-creating in natural harmony with.
My rabbit friends – or rather my kindred spirits, comrades, and Cosmic family in rabbit bodies – have known just what elements here on this planet would support me in the greatest and highest of ways. Their presence has helped me to continue to integrate my Earth and Star self and it has been through the love we share and the DNA-awakening they invoke, that has kept me on track, helped me remember, infused the necessary ingredients of alchemy needed, and literally have helped me remain here to complete this next spiraling phase.
Life is magickal with rabbits for sure and I’m beyond grateful to have rabbit friends and co-creators!
It’s Magick Crystal Wand time again in more focused mode – that’s the message loud and clear from Astrid. She is merging into her role beautifully, just as thought, and alongside her magickal and Cosmic timings of entering my life on Summer Solstice and communicating her name on the New Moon Supermoon in Cancer, she’s picking right up where Nestor especially, but Joy and Cosmo too, left off in giving me directives with my work she’ll be partnering in. Yesterday I found and heard her gnawing on my magickal wood pieces that are meant to be channeled into wands, scepters, and staves, and immediately got her message she was ready to help and telling me it was time to get fully back into it.
Luckily she only gnawed on the ones for me and where I’ll be wrapping with vegan leather, but she was definitely in tune with me, as the last couple of days while I’ve been getting organized and settled to open the space back again for this, I’ve been saying to myself “it’s time to create!”
She’s so in tune, as her behavior was an immediate reiterating message and that she agrees and is ready too! So cute!!
And so like Nestor who always was a part of the paintings and creations I was involved in. She would hang out with me while painting and when I was done she would sign the right corner along with me by placing her teeth marks there. 🙂 Joy also loved our painting time and even got into the paint literally to help out. Hehe!! So Astrid seems to be marking the wood with her energy signature too, along with letting me know to “hop to it!”
I’ve been away so much and in between trips only had time to begin the new commissions because of so much transitioning with the travels, personal business Dave and I have been managing, and then Astrid came and there’s been integration time with that, so I plan to now immerse fully back into completing the ones I started and can begin any new commissions as well.
That said, since I have a lot already on my plate between the current commissions and finalizing my book, I will only be able to take a very limited amount of new commissions for the Magick Crystal Wands.
Likely about 3 to perhaps 5 more at the most at this time and then I may need to take a break until I feel caught up.
Thank you all for your patience and I can’t wait to immerse in the energy of these wands and seeing them into manifestation fully now, especially having my co-creator, Astrid, with me to help out.
So, if you were interested in one of these from before, you may want to jump in here and let me know, as I’m constantly needing to make adjustments and not sure how long I’ll be able to continue offering these.
Here is the link for ordering:
The numbers reflected at the link are not up-to-date, as I haven’t had time to adjust them since I received orders, but they’ll reflect in availability when ordering.
If you have any questions please contact me here:
And remember if you spoke to me before about my creating a custom piece for you, please go ahead and place your order at the link above as well for your choice of Magick Crystal Wand. This will get the ball rolling with things.
I can only imagine how potent these will be with Astrid’s help.
Faery Down Under Part 1: A Warm Welcome to Australia with Family, Food, Wildlife Magick, City & Coastal Explorations
I had a little time this morning upon waking before we head out on our hiking and explorations today and thought I’d share a little summary of things experienced on my four days so far while it’s fresh and also since I won’t be doing a big trip blog at the end – wow it seems like so much longer, as it’s all been so rich. My three-flight-connection journey went well and synchronous, as I traveled to Australia on the Full Moon in Scorpio and I haven’t experienced any jet lag, oddness with being a day ahead, or challenges in any way including driving on the opposite side of the road than I’m used to. It’s all been seamless and comfortable – a very easy shift that likely is in part due to my mutability, but may also speak to a resonance of being here before beyond this life.
I’ve shared all of this via Instagram and reshared to Facebook, so this will be a bit of a repeat to anyone on those platforms, but I felt to share it here too for my blog community and for my own sort of travel journal memories, so it’s all in one place. I will only be sharing a few fav photos, however. The rest you can see at those social network links, if you haven’t already.
Upon arriving we spent the day in the city of Melbourne (which is beautiful in Autumn right now), walking everywhere and really feeling the culture here and enjoying the great vegan food and entertainment.
We visited the Eureka Skydeck 88, which is the highest viewing platform in the Southern Hemisphere, as well as sat in on one of the very old churches at evening mass with the choir singing, which was lovely.
Vegan restaurants are plentiful and the amount of options and quality of food rivals LA for sure. We enjoyed TONS of yums for lunch and dinner at Smith & Deli, as well as their sister restaurant, Smith & Daughters, and even got to enjoy local, live jazz music at the jazz place next door to the restaurant, where we secured a reservation for a table while waiting for our dinner spot to open.
Our next day was an exploration of the Melbourne’s countryside, which took us on a vortex drive through eucalyptus, gum trees, and ferns, having us spiral in the forests and parks, which was quite interesting and landing at a beautiful hike through the bush, which was just gorgeous.
And after it was family time, as I mentioned, I have family here I’ve never met.
So we got to spend the afternoon, evening, overnight, and morning with my family just outside of Melbourne. This is family whom we learned about in the early 90’s for the first time.
My dad’s family is from Sicily and they had spread out to several areas long ago. Some staying in Sicily, others settling on the East Coast of the U.S., Argentina, and Australia. Family members never having met including brothers and sisters. My Great Great Uncle and his family were who I got to meet for the first time and just days before his daughter’s 70th birthday – my third cousin who shares a birthday with Cosmo, my bunny – as well as his 102nd birthday. My uncle’s wife is 95.
He is the Uncle of my grand father who passed recently at almost 98 I believe. They were only 4 years apart. They all speak Italian and hold memories of life we can’t imagine. It’s incredible how much they have been blessed to experience.
My third cousin’s daughter and family were able to join too – she’s my fourth cousin, as well as my third cousin’s brother and wife. Her daughters were so very sweet and even invited me to join them in the living room to have a tea party and color with them, which I thought was adorable.
I can’t tell you how incredible it all was and how much I love these people, feeling I’ve known them forever. It was emotional to leave. Feeling like I’ve retrieved another part of my soul and expanded my heart with parts I didn’t know were missing.
My third cousing, Nella, who will be 70 tomorrow (well tomorrow here) was just the best. She reminded me of my mom actually and I was so strongly heart connected to her immediately. We both said it was incredible how strong our connection was and picked up as if I saw her yesterday. We learned a lot about each other and shared a lot of intimate things in the short time together. We will definitely be keeping in touch and I’ve learned that my parents, because of my coming here, just like with our trip to Alaska, are now planning a trip to hopefully visit the family in October this year. I know they will have an amazing time and I feel my mom and Nella will be like two peas in a pod, like she and I were.
I learned that Nella has taken up painting and other arts and crafts, as well as volunteers a lot. So we have that in common. She gave me a pair of earrings she made, and I got to see all of her beautiful artwork she’s been making. She taught herself via Youtube videos. Her daughter Olivia loves gardening and has wanted a Garden Tower to add to hers, which I shared about having, and so we chatted about a lot of things we both enjoy and she and her husband, as well as the rest of the family were so interested in our being vegan, loved my tattoos, and everything I do. Such warm welcomes all around. Olivia and her husband Liam have actually watched films like Earthlings and it has shifted their own course of action with their food choices for them and their two little girls.
The whole family grows a lot of their own vegetables, as my Great Great Uncle has land four times the size of Nella’s and all vegetable and fruit garden. And Olivia has a garden as well where they grow much of their own vegetables.
My 3rd cousin Phil, Nella’s brother, actually attributed my Great Great Uncle, Carmelo’s being 102 to eating so many vegetables. Apparently, and I’m not sure if I’m remembering correctly who, but it may have been Carmelo’s Grandfather or Father who lived to 105.
I have relatives on both sides of the family who have all reached mid to late nineties, and some 100’s, so I guess it runs in the genes. When Nella saw she me was floored I was 44. She said, “I thought you were no more than 25!” LOL! She, herself, looks in her 50’s like my parents, despite them all being in their 70’s and she said, “it’s in the genes.”
Nella’s husband, Vic, is an artist in the garden. They have a lovely large yard with bonsai trees, flowers, fruit trees, and more.
I was so amazed by the incredible bonsai collection he has. He took me to tour their garden sanctuary where I found hundreds of gorgeous, nurtured and cultivated bonsai. So amazingly beautiful! I have never seen anything like it anywhere. Some he’s loved and cared for for 40 years! They are so incredible that someone actually stole 4 of his most prized bonsai trees. Luckily his insurance company reimbursed him, but sad to put all those years of love into your babies and have someone take them.
I was so incredibly touched by my family we got to spend time with in every way including how welcome they made us in making all vegan food for everyone to enjoy, picking up all kinds of things for snacks, and trying new recipes. Nella was amazing with her culinary skills. We were so spoiled and had more food than we ever have.
She made things like sweet potato and squash patties, an eggplant, peppers and tomatoes dish, a chickpea and lentils dish, a vegan pot pie, fresh baked bread, (tons of sides), and a coffee chocolate cake. We also had huge spread of options for breakfast including cereals with rice milk, fruits, toast, jams, peanut butter, crumpets, coffee, juice, tea….my fav was the crumpets which I had about three of. One with avocado and walnuts, which she recommended as a tasty combo, and the others with peanut butter mostly and a little jam.
It was a fabulous time and celebration and so perfect that we were there for Mother’s Day with Nella, who reminded me a bit of my own mom, but such sweet timing to be with her to share the love.
It was challenging to leave. I just kept snuggling Nella as many times as I could. We will definitely be keeping in touch on Skype when I return home and I also got her daugher’s email to keep in touch with, as well as my Great Great Uncle’s phone number, as apparently he loves to talk on the phone. His accent is thick in Italian and Nella’s husband is thick in both Italian and Australian. So it really is both incredible and takes presence to listen, as it should be.
We are forever in each other’s hearts.
After visiting my family we had another wonderful experience visiting our kangaroo brothers and sisters. My family told us where we’d be able to experience them freely (not at a zoo) and they were right. It was such a magickal and incredible experience walking among them in the wild with cockatoos and other wild, beautiful birds flying around. What magnificent beings they are. And to be so close to them was such a gift. So human-like and powerful.
Until then we’d only seen dead kangaroo on the side of the road, as they are like deer who wander at dusk and cross the highways. So sad, but what amazing creatures they are.
I also love all of the wild, tropical birds here. The rainbow lorikeets, parrots, cockatoos, and the huge magpies. The songs in the morning are just beautiful and the cawing is such a nice feeling.
I’m sure locals might find some of this annoying, or simply the norm, but it is such a gift and I never tire of the wildlife anywhere, even in my own backyard. Everyday is a miracle and magickal whenever I see any animal, no matter how often. But to see new ones just adds to that magick for sure!
After our kangaroo introductions and connections, we set off up the coast, as our journey will be taking us to Brisbane. We’re taking the longer route along the coastline and stopping along the way. So far we spent time in Metung and are now in Tathra, with so many other seaside towns like Eden, in between.
All so gorgeous and we’ve just been booking places along the way, which has been incredible finding the most amazing Airbnb’s on the water.
Upon arrival in Metung, greeted by our Airbnb host, who was so sweet and helpful, we had the chance to explore the town and had an amazingly magickal sunset experience by the water surrounded by black swans.
It was surreal and they even gifted me 18 feathers, so I’m really feeling the enchantment and their medicine.
We also had a rare sighting of the ring-tailed possum on our way home, which is only seen at night, if at all. I think the animals are coming out to greet us, which I’m so touched by.
This current place in Tathra we’re staying in is stunning, reminding us of our place in Lake Tahoe with the expansive 270 degree view of the ocean all around. It sits atop a cafe and actually is for sale. Wheels turning…. 😉
We’ll be setting off for some hiking today, as we’re surrounded here by gorgeous beaches and National Parks…so we’ll have the best of both worlds here, exploring all day in this Heaven on Earth.
And that’s an update for now. Only four days so far, but all feels incredibly important and just as I suspected, a bit of soul retrieval going on here for sure, with heart and spirit nourishing, and definitely a lot of inspiration and heart expansion to infuse into my writing and life.
Feeling very grateful and blessed for sure.
Just sharing a short post reflecting the powerful nature experiences and medicine that took place each day over the weekend, back-to-back. Very potent and mirroring of the shamanic energy I’ve moved more deeply into over the last two years. This also reflects the rising Schumann resonance that hit an all-time high for Earth this weekend, spiking on Easter itself.
Laura had just sent me a link this morning about this (I wasn’t familiar with this term) and shared about its connection to the collective’s awakening. The link basically explained this as the natural resonance or frequency of the Earth that had a huge peak this weekend (Easter was its spike, as mentioned) to the highest recorded value it’s been.
I call it “a return to natural harmony,” which has been my focus since I first really started connecting dots on my own awakening path.
Anyway, beginning Friday there were some very pronounced experiences that took place alongside a lot of beautiful and instant nature reflections, as manifestation to things in the moment taking place or being thought or spoken of.
This included a magnificent sighting of a Bald Eagle on our Fallen Leaf Lake hike while Lynne was visiting, not more than maybe 1/2 an hour after talking about Bald Eagles with someone we met along the way.
The Eagle swooped ahead of us through the trees, then circled round over the edge of the lake and disappeared to the left, later to be found by us sitting atop a tree where he sat waiting and connecting with us for quite some time. Lynne got some great shots with her zoom camera (just received them so here’s one above), but during the time I was watching him he tucked his head under and plucked out one white feather that floated off into the wind. I thought that was quite significant.
Then the next day when my parents surprised us for a visit, we took them on a walk and right when we got to an opening where two benches sat overlooking the lake, a Sun Dog appeared above Tahoe and we sat there for about 10 minutes taking its beauty and symbolism in together. I love how in these photos the sun appears as a hexagon.
And on Easter, yesterday, (right after seeing this lenticular cloud appearing like a UFO over Lake Tahoe’s portal) Dave and I decided to drive up to Tahoe Meadows for a snow shoe hike, which took us to the top overlooking the lake.
We made it there just as the snow was about to blow in, which it did on our descent back along with strong winds that made the journey double the work, along the way passing through trees with singing and visiting Chickadees – all quite magickal.
But it was on our drive from the top, back into Incline Village where we were going to get a drink at the Lone Eagle Grille overlooking the water, that we came upon a mother Black Bear and her three yearlings.
We hadn’t seen bears since our RV adventure on the Magick Bus up in the Montana and Canadian Rockies area where we encountered Grizzly Bears several times (twice on one hike along our path – one of which was a mother Grizzly with three cubs too, as well as a few times off the side of the road close to our car, and Black Bears a couple of times).
I also had some potent Bear dreams and visions while on that journey, eventually leading me to purchase a Native-made copper ring with Bear totem on it.
But yesterday it was a Black Bear family that graced us with their presence, although their fur had turned golden and reddish, making them appear a bit like Grizzly Bears, minus that signature pronounced shoulder hump.
Anyway, we caught glimpse of a yearling running across the road, then slowed and saw that he’d been going over to where mom and the others were pine cone foraging.
At first we only saw mom and two yearlings, but after a few minutes, a third appeared. This being very symbolic to a significant unfolding taking place in my life.
They were not newborn cubs, given their size – their mom likely had them last Winter -so now were yearlings coming out of hibernation and looking for food. Young bears stay with their mom about two years and are born during hibernation. You can still see the mother’s nipples in the photo above.
We stopped to observe them, sitting in our car just across from them. They were completely absorbed in eating and not at all disturbed by our presence in observing them, which allowed me to watch and receive what they had to share.
This reflected to me a time in my own life where I am nurturing what I’ve received in inner reflection during my own period of hibernation. A time of nourishing my soul needs in Spring’s cycle of renewal and creative birthing.
Eventually all of the yearlings made it over by mom and I was able to capture some video I shared on social media – Instagram and Facebook – along with these photos here.
So much bear magick and fearless ancient medicine! Not to mention, empowered Sacred Feminine energy and that Divine Mother embodiment that has become so deeply experienced within me.
I love their strength and transformative energy. They remind me of the courage I have within to call upon in order to take action without fear, while remaining grounded and in rhythm with Earth and Nature’s cycles.
As I observed them, it was a reminder of observing myself in every moment and self-reflecting – something I do all the time by stepping outside of myself and remaining detached, as I review what I am doing, thinking, or feeling.
Their coming out of hibernation (just like I’ve been quieter during the Winter months) also was reflective for me in that creative rebirthing taking place in my life currently after having gone through my own vision quest, returning with even greater comfort in the solitude of my own company, enjoying exploring the dark and unknown, going deeper into intuitive trust, and with Nature as my constant companion and guiding force.
Their coming out mirrors my own vulnerable, but strengthened reveal.
It has been a time of deep soul searching during the Magick Bus journey and these Winter months, really seeding what eventually I would bring forth into the world anew. And that was done through decisions made from the power of my Spirit.
Bears teach us about knowing the timing on things and aligning with the “when” and “where,” which specifically messaged me in trusting how things are unfolding with my life and new, and especially with something I’ve been waiting to hear about.
In the meantime, the teaching of laws of respect and boundaries that Bear brings forth continues to get reiterated for me. Both in strengthening, anchoring, and voicing my own, as well as mindfully being present and mutually honoring of those around me.
And because of this mutual honoring, there was no need for mother Bear to feel threatened, nor did I disrespect her boundaries invisibly understood.
In this way we could mutually be in a safe space together and share the love, connection, and reflective wisdom.
I loved watching the yearlings rolling the pine cones with their big paws, while trying to get the nuts from the cones. This was a reminder of keeping that playful energy alive (so reflective of the time spent with Lynne the days leading up), and simply of my own inner child that thrives on playing, laughing, giggling, and being imaginatively silly and in the moment with the energy moving through me.
While Bears reflect the natural leader abilities within us when they show up so profoundly, they also summon us to relax into our vitality, bringing that forth in innocent, creatively passionate channels of self-expression.
Such beautiful gifts and reflections received and integrated.
Virgo Full Moon magick to everyone! Some big things have culminated around this moon energy here in my personal experience including a huge ending/beginning that took place yesterday with a lot of recognition of the full circle experience and also how it all was the gift that gave me new life and anchored me here longer, most literally. I also have a big celebration today of my personal empowerment and embodiment, as well as some interesting things revealing themselves.
What are you experiencing around this energy right now? I know a lot of people that are having major shifts in their life, openings, and breakthroughs to their long-time dreams. Exciting to hear and witness.
Virgo has us looking at our relationship to our Earth Mother, our bodies and making that heart connection to their messages, releasing perfectionism, limiting beliefs, and inhibitions, stepping up rather than hiding, and reminding us we need to focus with conviction and integrity on the details and steps put into motion now if we really want to manifest our dreams.
Ready? Set. Go!
I took this photo early this morning when I woke from it beaming on my face through the window.
And today I awaken, reminded of what this day also means for me, as it is the 16-year anniversary of my legally changing my middle name to my official last name, hence now my full, legal name being Tania Marie.
So, a reflection of self-embodiment and a rebirthing and anchoring into who that is, as I’ve continued forward throughout the rest of my life.
It all seems timely and significant with Virgo’s energy right now highlighting things – my opposite sign as a Pisces – which is all about the “practical” application of creative self-expression in a way that most serves the highest good, which is inclusive simultaneously of you.
It’s down-to-Earth energy helps us to bring all of those dreams and ideas into grounded being, anchoring us more with integrity and commitment, and helping us to balance things, knowing that it isn’t just enough to imagine and have incredible ideas, but also we must apply these things in the every-day and understand the processes of manifestation. After all, we aren’t here on Earth for nothing!
Imperfect perfectionism is key too, allowing ourselves to be human through it all and to avoid extremism.
Synchronous to Virgo’s focus on practical matters of life including nutrition, healing, health, “service”, and work, last night we hosted our Tahoe Herbivores’ meetup here at our place for a private screening of “What The Health,” which is a follow-up film exposing government and big business corruption keeping us sick, from the creators of the award-winning documentary Cowspiracy. – both great films and eye-openers for people, plus an added bonus of my partner Dave Simon having cameos in both. 😉
It was a great evening, awesome group of 12, and yummies I made including my air fried, breaded cauliflower with homemade vegan thousand island dressing, my almond “cheeze” ball, and pine nut roasted hummus with rainbow carrots – all a big hit! A guest also brought a huge bowl of sprouted lentils and home made pear kombucha to add to the yum. We even had an amazing sunset to welcome our guests. It was a lovely evening all around followed by dinner at a local Indian restaurant, but I had to smile at the tie-in with the Moon’s energy supporting this evening’s film and discussions.
Anyway, today I plan to get some Nature time in amidst some of my own “practical applications” I’ll be implementing to help balance and ground the energies and see what inspirations come through from immersion time with Terra.
And this integrated Nature and Moon energy brings me to the Magick Crystal Wands for an update.
Right after I posted the three wands that I was guided would be offered, two got spoken for.
So I only have the powerful Neptune and Nymph Wand remaining, currently.
Definitely not one for the faint of heart! It’s watery essence is anchored in Earthy manifestation, SO reminding me of the Virgo/Pisces dynamics! Wow! Perhaps it will end up staying with me! Hehe!! Weeeeeee!
You can get more info on it here, which includes the original link with many more photos of details of it as well:
As mentioned in this post I do have a bunch more wands that spoke to me and will in the future be channeled for offering.
That said, I got the idea yesterday when someone, who had really felt drawn to one of the wands that was spoken for, did not end up being the one to receive it, I immediately was inspired and knew I could create a unique wand for her with some of the elements I had collected and so that put a spin on things and now have 3 custom wand channelings that will be upcoming for individuals in similar circumstances.
So this could be an option too, if you desire.
However, I will reiterate what I shared in my last post on them, that these won’t be created right away, but in their own time, as I have to switch gears a bit for a while.
Who knows though, as I go by inspiration and if suddenly an alignment, divine inspiration, and energy hits and nudges me to make one, then I will.
How’s that for my own Pisces/Virgo integration of divine inspiration tempered with practical application? LOL!
Wishing everyone a balancing Full Moon!
