Cosmic Heart Activation with Reiki, Raw Food, and Wild Dolphin Communion ~ Birthing the New Earth in Bimini, Bahamas – all details of this amazing retreat and how to secure your spot, can be found here.
The excitement is building as we edge closer and closer to December and the powerful energies of what many know as the Mayan End of Days and 12/21/12. Everyone is feeling the shifting energies in their own way, as we collectively embark on a new journey of experience. I’m honored and thrilled to be part of an amazing offering, this December, in support of this new reality.
If you haven’t decided yet on how you will choose to anchor in the energies personally and collectively, but are feeling drawn to be part of something that is heart empowering, perhaps immersing yourself in the Atlantean energies of Bimini may be your calling.
Here is one of the unique experiences you can look forward to having on this amazing retreat as you commune with our cetacean brothers and sisters, the wild dolphins – an experience that easily could become your most cherished and magical of your life:
Swimming with Dolphins at the ARC:
If still unsure and would like to explore this option more to find out if this is where your heart is meant to be, here is an inside look from Jenny Yemaya Cook, my dear friend and the founder of the ARC – The Atlantis Rejuvenation Center where our retreat will take place in December – shared in the latest article in Get Fresh Magazine, Autumn 2012…All about the manifestation of creating the raw retreat center in the Bahamas. It not only provides an amazing unfolding story of its birthing and the energies around it, but is an inspiring story to all on living your dreams, doing everything it takes to bring them into fruition, and trusting in the magic of your intuitive heart guidance:
And here is a beautiful article by freelance writer and lover of all things wild and natural, Amy Lesser, who recently swam in Bimini with the wild dolphins while on retreat at the ARC that offers an inside look from the perspective of someone just recently having experienced all that Bimini and the ARC have to share.

Raise Your Vibrational Energy: Swimming with the Wild Dolphins of Bimini by Amy Lesser
At the edge of the horizon, where the blue turquoise sea meets with the sky, are the sharp curls of impressionistic waves. They wiggle and wave at the end of our vision as though cut from construction paper by a child. They remind us of the books we read as a child, filled with poems of the sea. Always present, those blue curling waves beckon of adventure and speak of distant lands.
It is no wonder, then, that our first trip to this sparkling waters yielded up a buried and lost child-self. The intuitive side of us that has always been connected to the higher vibrational light, but unable to find its way back, resurfaced.
We were scheduled for a one week stay at the Atlantis Rejuvenation Center (the ARC) on the island of Bimini, in the Bahamas, to meet up with friends, complete some last minute construction to their newly refurbished retreat, and ultimately, to soothe our own jagged waves by immersing ourselves in the healing Bahamian waters to swim with wild dolphins.
Bimini is one of only five places in the world where a swim in the ocean consistently guarantees a swim with wild dolphins. It is home to the playful and social Atlantic spotted dolphins, as well as many pods of Atlantic bottlenose dolphins. Wild dolphins swim right up to you in the water and encourage you to join in their pod by swirling, twirling, and frolicking in the waters of paradise. When you are in the water with the dolphins, they immediately begin to heal your cellular structure through their echolocation and sonar. Studies have shown that dolphins activate cellular healing in us by spontaneously encouraging our bodies to create more T-cells and ‘feel good’ endorphins. The echolocation from dolphins can be felt in our skeletal structure, and ultimately reverberates through our spinal cord and into our brain. Dolphins impart their high frequency sonar and highest intelligence vibrations upon our cells and DNA.
We had come to swim with the dolphins, to heal our bodies with wholesome raw vegan food, and to meditate and stretch with yoga in the mystical land of the Atlantean energies. Bimini is known to be the home of the Atlantean stones, an underwater road of manmade ancient stones. The lost civilization of Atlantis, prophesied to be located off the shores of Bimini by the late Edgar Cayce, American psychic and medical clairvoyant, were located in 1968, just as Cayce had predicted. You can snorkel and explore the Atlantean road, as we did during our stay in Bimini.
The vibrational energies of Bimini’s waters are impossible to ignore. Situated directly in the vortex of the Bermuda Triangle, Bimini simply rolls with powerful emotions and clarity. This energy is enhanced to an unmistakable level when we join pods of wild dolphins in the sea.
Our dolphin boat, which left the bay at 2:00 and returned each evening at 8:00, floated us like winged flying fish directly out to the mirror clear waters of the dolphin grounds. Cheerful starfish dotted our path in the crystal waters below. Here we entered the land of the dolphins by donning our snorkeling gear, slipping into the silky ocean, and becoming one with the watery blue sea. There are no words to describe the energizing epiphany that one experiences upon first swimming with wild dolphins. You could describe it as a mixture between pure joy and the ultimate love of the universe. It is a life milestone that redirects us back to what is essential and true, and inexplicably imbeds itself in our very cells. Some react to their first swim with dolphins with exuberant smiles or laughter, similar to the joy and carefree feelings of childhood. Some cry uncontrollable tears of pure joy. Some are completely overwhelmed at the beauty of it. All come away with a new door opened that lets in the most dazzling luminous light into the cortex of our souls.
The Atlantis Rejuvenation Center is the dream-child of Jenny Yemaya Cook. Jenny, who grew up in England, first came to Bimini 14 years ago in her quest to visit the greater vortex/grid lines of our planet. She described arriving in Bimini as, “Feeling as though I had come home.” Though she did not know how to swim and had a tremendous fear of the deep water, she was soon relaxed and twirling in the deep with the dolphins. Bimini has a way of doing this. Whether it is the high mineral content in the beautifully clear Caribbean water, or the energy of the place itself, we felt like agile fish alongside the dolphins in the lovely blue world of sparkling Atlantean energies. Adding in the pure clean raw vegan food we ate that week, prepared with care by raw chef Amanda Russcol, our entire systems were cleansed, recharged and elevated. Beautiful verdant salads, four-star entrees, and bursting-with-life raw soups are part of your daily experience. You will forage for sea vegetables such as sea purslane, prickly pear fruit, and kelp, that are then cleansed and added to our raw soups, juices, and salads. The intense energy shift and vibrational realignment from the dolphins is greatly assisted by a diet that is clean and pure. This helps you to raise the body light energy that you contain, even further
While at the ARC, you can soothe yourself, as we did, through yoga sessions in the restorative sea air. Every afternoon you will be privileged to head out to swim with the wild dolphins in the ultra pure waters of Bimini. It is here, at the joining of our world and the dolphin world, that the dolphins will invite you into their sacred ground. Once you arrive at this border, simply practice respect, reverence and most of all, remembrance.
If you are looking for a way to quickly increase your energy vibration, to heal your body, or to reconnect with the pure joy of life that seems so lost in our busy world, you owe it to yourself to visit the quiet and healing island of Bimini, and to reconnect with your child-self through playful swims with the wild dolphins.
Our Bimini Retreat in December over the potent 12/21/12 date, is filling so you may not want to wait until the last minute to book your space. This is time to reach into your heart and see what it is sharing with you in terms of its resonance and path. This will be a beautiful, memorable and powerful experience to share together for those who are meant to join. We will not only work with the energies in ways to align and support your individual path, but anchor that in with a collective highest good. I get more excited, the closer the dates approach, which now is only less than 3 months away!
The dates of our journey are 12/16-12/21. We have had an amazing response and influx of inquiries about the trip. On our Facebook event page alone there are 16 Yes RSVP’s and 32 Maybes, but only 20 spots total and are a 1/4 filled. We are booked full for the boat vortex trip on 12/21, but still have spots for the land vortex trip on the same day.
Remember, however, that if you would like to join us, the only way to officially secure your spot, like the others have, is with a deposit. We love all of the supportive love and excitement about the trip, but don’t forget to book your space so you won’t miss out.
Both raw vegan and cooked vegan options available. This is a chance to break away from the structures and schedules of life, and immerse yourself in loving, flowing energy, not to mention a breath-taking opportunity to swim and connect with our magical dolphin friends, and to be supported by the energies of Bimini. You will also have the chance to learn and be certified in Reiki 1 and 2, participate in group meditations, take daily yoga classes and more! All activities are optional and tailored to your needs.

I look forward to connecting with you and am grateful to be sharing this journey of creation we are all on together.
You might notice one of the themes that consistently shows up in my blog posts is that of Nature in one form or another. Whether that’s all the time I spend immersed in outdoor adventures daily, the garden journey I’ve been nurturing, cultivating the simpler ways and more Nature-based living all around, the animals I encounter and their messages, animal communication in general, or of course the journeys with my dearest companion and wisest guide, Astrid, who happens to reside in a rabbit’s body this life – Nature is at the heart of it all.
This theme has also included what I feel is one of the most vital missing pieces, which is that of embodying and knowing your own natural essence and nurturing a return to that basic nature that includes and does not negate or condemn the human body. I’ve spoken often about how increasing time not only spent in Nature, but getting to love and understand the miracle of your body’s awareness and how key it is to reclaim all of your parts (shadow projections, as well) will support becoming a more fully conscious, empowered and integrated human being, not to mention provide so many benefits to your well being all around.
It’s basically, and at the base level, about remembering the nature of who you are. 🌿
The farther we stray from natural awareness and being, the further we lose our humanity.
Nature has been sharing awareness with us for ages, but she speaks in a language only your heart will hear and your instincts will understand.
When your heart is closed or you weigh heavily in mind and thought alone, it will be difficult to ever hear.
Over-thinking can lead to fear and anxiety.
Trusting in your heart and instincts can lead you to harmonious alignment.
You can choose whatever direction you prefer to go in, but the question is, are you really choosing with conscious awareness?
I chose this photo, taken by KC when she was visiting, to go along with the theme of this post because it reflects the essence of what I’m expressing here with me so deeply immersed in Nature and being the nature of me that you almost can’t distinguish where each begins and ends.
This was taken the day I found my faery crown and wore it for the rest of the hike. It becomes part of the tree behind me and all of the branches seem to be reaching into and from my crown, while my foot nearly looks webbed and shifting beneath the water it merges with. I’m feeling right at home in this perfect little nymph haven of the lake and more at home than ever in my body, at this current space and time, by embracing all of the elements within.
But this didn’t happen overnight and the journey still continues. It came with consistent devotion to making that conscious shift. It came with an understanding that the best things I would ever learn, need, or receive would come from listening to and dedicating time for the elements that had long gone neglected. It came from tipping the scales to regain what I lost and spending the majority of my time in Nature, moving my body, being with my body and learning to navigate more by her instincts and what was being reflected to me in the environment – in essence, aligning with natural harmony.
It’s about reclaiming parts we’ve forgotten, letting the ancient knowledge within our DNA whisper louder, and not being afraid to stand our ground like the trees do, despite the weather and terrain – legs rooted to the navel of Earth’s wisdom while crown and hands open to our vast Cosmic origins.
This continues to be my journey, but it has made all the difference and I believe is what will continue to make a bigger difference in terms of the dynamics playing out.
It’s where I remain devoted both in personal integration and in shared relationship to Nature all around me.
And I’m grateful for my garden that is part of this journey of integrated embodiment and conscious awareness. It continues to evolve, much as I do and I am grateful for the growing relationship and understanding I get to nurture through that.
This includes the intimate knowing of every plant and flower and every creature great and small.
They are me and I am them.
Here are some looks at current garden reflections.
As you can see the wildflowers continue to bloom in radiant succession.
Depending on the angle and lighting it all takes on a whole new perspective and mini world, which I LOVE!
And then there’s the new field of beauties on the rise.
I’m in love with the little carpet of mini wildflowers on the side yard that I seeded this year.
Look at how they’re reaching happily for the Sun and by Autumn’s end will be quite something, with next year matching my garden. Yay!
This new area, I only just started to work with, has truly captured my heart.
Listening to and working with the wild that was already there and adding in some more magick in between is really beginning to explode with joy and become what I had hoped – a faery wonderland!
I love the blend of raw and imagined merging together.
Look at that glow, lighting up the flower faeries, as they share their joy and life essence. I love captures like these that reflect the experience I have when I’m out in the garden alone. There is so much enchantment here!
And I love the surprises that bloom everywhere in between.
I’ll save garden yummies and plant nanny updates for another post, but everything’s doing really well and Astrid continues to enjoy delicious harvests, while I enjoy adding to my dried collection of delicacies for the faery kitchen.
And here are a few of the forest friends I get to play with daily.
This chubby chipmunk is much larger than any other around here and he took it upon himself to make a delicacy out of my incredible hybrid lilies, taking down a couple of the stalks on his own to eat the petals. This was my huge plant that had grown over 56 inches – likely was at 58 when I removed the tops of the last stalks he bent, to enjoy the flowers he left behind, indoors. This hybrid kind is obviously not toxic, as he’s totally fine and I still see him around long after he’s eaten quite a few lily petals.
Dave actually came down to my office and we watched together as he climbed up the stalks like a tree and sat there enjoying his meal while other little ones were running and flying about.
He said, “wow, it’s like a nature show down here.” I said, “yes, everyday there’s something new happening and much to-do about everything.” The perfect mirror and world for Astrid and me.
The other joy has been seeing Strawberry around so much, nearly every day now. She looks really healthy, despite not having all of her fur anymore. Her face and eyes reflect so much wisdom when I see and talk to her and they speak to quite the being who resides inside. She is one of the elders here and I cherish her presence so much. It’s no surprise she found her way to me and inside Wonderland with Astrid and me when I took care of her.
I noticed that she had been trying to remove these towels we had under some things on the deck for protection from scratching it, tearing holes little by little in them, but making slow progress at removing any part of them.
I realized she wanted to have the towels for her nest – likely to stay warm at night and the upcoming Autumn and Winter seasons. So, I decided to put out a small little white towel where she was pulling at the others. The next morning it was gone. I recently put out two more small pink ones for her and she did in fact come back for one of them. I believe she’ll be returning for the other soon and that all makes me happy. I envision her cuddled up in them for a long Winter’s nap.
You may recall that I took care of her and got her cleaned up and nurtured when she needed it (after getting stuck in the epoxy in our garage) and now I’m helping to care for her again, out in the wild.
It was human-made things that damaged her fur in the first place and so it will be by human hands that help and a human heart that listens to her needs. In this way I feel we are sharing a conscious, symbiotic relationship now. We are connected for life.
I then also bring that beautiful, wild, and sacred Nature essence inside, surrounding myself with reminders of the cycles of life, the divine connection that is shared with all, the wisdom within everything, and the sacredness of all things and parts of who I am.
You may recall the nest mobile I started creating a few years ago. Well, it’s certainly grown!
I have many a bird, wasp, and bee hive nest (parts and wholes) adorning this tree of life indoors that I’ve created from all the beautiful little homes of amazing sacred geometry and architectural genius I found on the ground and brought home to cherish.
And most recently, we finally put up the powerful staff I made for the Autumn Equinox day retreat gathering a few years back that Laura and I hosted here, which includes some of the most potent Nature adornments I’ve found over the years.
It reminds me of one I used to have from many lives and Moons ago.
The birthing of this creation was quite the undertaking, as I strung everything together with great intention, piece-by-piece. My huge way of honoring the sacredness within all of life and reclaiming these wild, raw, primitive and ancient parts of my and Earth’s lineage.
It is quite the power piece and the way we hung it makes it easy to remove and replace when ever I want to use it in sacred ritual.
I’ve wanted to put it up, but we just never got around to it. Then, it naturally aligned for it going up on the potent New Moon in Cancer we had on the 9th of July.
I didn’t plan it, but it was perfect and it activated a lot of things once it was finally in place anchoring energies.
And I also bring Nature’s wisdom and gifts through channeled creations I’m inspired to make and sometimes offer over the years.
Most recently it was the Cosmic Curiosity Chests that called to me. As you might recall my sharing, they “invite you to engage parts of yourself more consciously and consistently, to explore, be curious about, or open a dialogue or connection with parts of yourself through the invitation of each spirit energy they embody. In this way they activate an initiation of sorts into a Cosmic dance for you to merge into your human experience so that the two become One. The magickal then is integrated into your daily life as a natural ritual, rather than being separate. This is one of those ways to live the magick.”
This also reminds you not to forget any of your parts, and so I included gifts from Mother Terra herself within each ritual bundle to reflect the nature of you.
It’s been an honor to see each of them off to their cocreators. More than half have journeyed to their heart homes and I look forward to seeing where the last 5 – Cosmic Woodland Faery, Earth Guardian, Blossom, Mermaid, and Dream Weaver – will fly off to.
You know I enjoy wrapping and shipping them off, just as much as I do creating them.
I have some upcoming new sacred Nature creations I’m going to be working on for our home in the coming weeks, too – something I’ve also long been wanting to create – and there’s potential I may open up to creating custom orders if they speak to you too.
It is so important to me that Nature is a daily part of the experience, as I truly believe that if we desire answers, we’ll receive them in conscious communion with Her as a mirror to know ourselves, and we’ll gain greater clarity for the pivotally crucial choices life is presenting to us right now.
Happy August to everyone! May this be a month for gentle transformations that bring even greater conscious awareness.
Here are some beautiful August fields from yesterday’s hike down to the lake.
Everything was so lovely and full of life – a perfect reflection for Lughnasadh celebrations.
Even the one remaining duckling from the mallard couple we see at the pond had grown, and we were happy this little one had made it.
I did bury a tiny bird I found along our hike and discovered some lizard skin in my planters that had been shed.
Nature demonstrates with grace, how life goes on and the wheels continue to turn.
Well, it’s been a jam packed week and a half since last I posted, so I thought I’d sit down and put into words a summary overview of things that have unfolded as a way to catch up and also reflect on some of the energetics that have been journeyed through, since each piece always speaks volumes more than meets the eye. I imagine you might also continue to feel like an extraordinary amount of things are being experienced in a condensed period. It feels like much more than just time flying. It’s an acceleration that is merging everything at once and blurring the lines between things so it’s more unified.
As I mentioned before going offline this week, we had some special visitors heading our way and I noted how even the days leading up to their arrival were indicative of transformative energies underway.
It all began on the evening of Thursday the 8th when we went down for an evening of free “Music on the Beach” and were greeted by double rainbow eye portals in the sky, that framed our rainbow umbrella.
This came a couple of hours after quite the rock and roll here, as a 6.0 earthquake shook the house. It was centered about an hour away and was the largest we’ve felt, to date. We’ve never felt any earthquakes here until the last year, so again, indicative of more Earth shifts mirroring the transformation of the collective consciousness.
Friday the 9th was then the New Moon, and it also happened to be our friend’s birthday who was about to arrive. Part of the timing of this trip was in fact to celebrate his birthday. And all I remember is that my energy was through the roof that night of the New Moon. I actually was up the latest I ever have been, but was so naturally wired and alert. And when I went to bed, I continued to be so activated that it took me a long time to fall asleep. I ended up only sleeping a few hours, but felt completely fine the next morning. Other things were activated by the New Moon as well, but they all seemed to be supportive in speeding things up and making room for the new.
Saturday the 10th was a big day of discovering nature treasures (8 in all!) along the way of our daily nature outing, but the most potent being a perfect, large raven feather with gorgeous peacock sheen.
I haven’t found any raven feathers in years, but the few I have found in the past were never as lovely as this one. That also felt like an infusion of extra magickal energy indicative of big shifts in motion. That day was fully packed with outdoor exercise followed by relaxing time at the lake park, where there was a surprise free music event going on. We felt like we were in a flow of alignment and that continued all week as well.
That evening was also the second appearance this year of my sweet, wild rabbit friend, Hope, as she was on our front lawn when we drove up to the house.
Her presence then continued to grace the next morning when she popped in on Astrid and me, as you can see.
I was sitting at my desk with Astrid laying next to my feet, when suddenly something caught the corner of my eye and there she was peering in on us. She stayed at the sliding glass door for a few minutes and both she and Astrid had their ears cocked listening for the tiny nuances of energy running between us all. It was the sweetest thing ever! And then after connecting a while, she made her way off into the garden and down the yard.
Synchronously, I had just picked up the two new, little garden stones at the store the day before while grocery shopping and one is a “Hope” stone.
I found the perfect spot for them and when I posted a photo of them on Instagram, it prompted KC (you may recall her as Bean from past posts) to realize why she had picked up a certain visitor that felt out of place at her home. She hadn’t realized how many gnomes I had and so she told me she had a friend who wanted to join us at the Forest Portal because he was melting in the Arizona heat and sun and wanted to live in the mountainous four seasons.
So, they surprised me upon arrival with this Forest Gnome who traveled with them from Lake Havasu and now resides over the garden here. I love him!
It was also Sunday when Dave and I realized we were in a time warp, as we both thought our friends were arriving that day. So, we had been getting everything ready and in order. I had just baked a special birthday cake, even, for their arrival.
It was my first time ever vegan Neapolitan bundt cake that I was determined I wanted to make and figured it out! It was three layers of vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry swirled together with a chocolate ganache glaze.
Long story around this weird mix-up with the days, but we were literally surprised, or even shocked, when we texted to ask our friends’ ETA to find out it was the next day and not that one. LOL!
So many details had been overlooked, but created a timeline jump of its own that ended up opening a lot of extra space and relaxing, leading up to our week together. And likely was all part of many alignments that unfolded over the week, as well. But that breather space proved important, as our days were fully, and action, packed. It also made for a beach day to rest and absorb the Tahoe waters on the day we thought they were to arrive.
With our days mixed up, we had extra time, so I was able to also bake my best batch yet of chocolate chip orange cookies.
This time I added barberries and a muesli mix, but extra orange essence made for super yum! And we got in another hike before they arrived. We left early in the morning and got on the trail the earliest we have, which ended up gifting us with a deer sighting – something that is very rare to have happen on trails here and especially later when more people are hiking. You can see her center of the photo below between the trees.
(Side note: Incidentally, last evening I saw a majestic buck with full antlers and black striped tail along our way out to an event, which was a first as we always see does. That felt particularly full circle and powerful. Also reflective because I have a full antlered buck pendant I had been paying special attention to the last days and here he appeared in the flesh. And his antlers also perfectly mirrored the faery crown I found and wore that you’ll see shortly.)
Anyway, the extra space we had before they actually arrived also gave me time to create some wildflower faery bouquets to grace our space.
We had a bunch of wildflowers growing along the edges of our front yard, but due to our both cleaning up the front before letting the lawn go fully and deciding to stop watering altogether except for our beds to help with the drought and just return things to nature, I decided to bring them in. They were on their last leg of blooming and since I planted tons of wildflowers for the pollinators in my gardens and yards, I thought they’d be nice to enjoy for the week – they’re actually still going strong in the vases right now. The house came with the lawn, and although we’ve tried clover, it’s only partially doing what we had hoped. So, we are looking at ways to return it to a more natural terrain step by step.
And speaking of a return to nature, this past week was a deep dive into all the highlights we could muster up of Earthy goodness and adventures galore to share with our friends so they could check off some of their bucket list items and we could enjoy some of the best the area has to offer. It’s been a reunion treat having the week off with these two amazing souls who came out to share a place we all love.
They have both lived here during three year’s of back-to-back Summer months while they were full-time RVing it like we were. I’m not sure if you recall that story, but we both were adventuring at the same time in our RVs and we met the year we decided to settle back in Tahoe. We’d known each other for years online, but here is where the stars aligned for our meeting in person and we discovered how much we all had in common – the rest is history.
Everyday this last week was for the explorer at heart from morning to evening. We mixed it up between water and land activities, along with relaxing time.
Our week started off on the 12th with relaxing and catching up on our back Forest Portal deck where we planned the week’s expeditions too. They had yet to see our house all finished, as when they saw it we just closed on the house and they got a walk-through of the before. This was the second time, however, to connect with Astrid in person and they loved seeing how much she evolved. They were actually here when I first brought her home and now she was a snuggle bunny enjoying having them around and they, her, since they had to leave their bunny son, Nova at home. Having their own rescue rabbit made connecting even more meaningful for them all, since they have come to understand and deepen with bunnies through that journey. I loved seeing Astrid connect with them everyday, binkying with joy, playing, wanting love and snuggles, and giving it too!
And from Tuesday on through the end of Saturday it was a fully packed Sierra Nevada adventure.
We kicked things off with kayaking down the upper Truckee River with Class 1 and a few Class 2 rapids, followed by vegan burgers and sampling the new vegan ice cream menu in town where we all ordered rolled ice cream!
Then our first hiking adventure commenced the next day on one of our favorites where we had the 9 mile trail all to ourselves. We only saw 13 people the whole day, but they were either at the end of the trail near the parking lot, close to the end of the trail near the lake, or across the lake that was our destination.
This trail was quite magickal and the photos reflected the faery essence beaming off of us.
Check out KC’s glow – she’s been activated returning to the mountain forests. But the glow around everything was wild! Even the flowers were beaming and we each had a different aura – hers whites and blues and mine a subtle earthy orange.
We found faery forest bracelets – the guys did too. I absolutely love this photo Clint (Happy) took of us. The faery energy was strong on this hike not only creating glowing auras around the two of us, but in this photo there’s a shapeshifting quality that made our faces and bodies more elongated and even accentuated faery ears on KC!
And I even found a forest faery crown I wore the entire time after finding it.
Wearing it felt very natural to me. I ended up keeping it because it fit my head perfectly.
A woman later remarked as we passed her, “You’ve become one with the forest.” 🙂
We had a great time and were grateful for the peace and quiet to just connect with each other and nature.
Even the boys always have tons of fun, as you can see.
After the hike we decided to relax a bit at a park lake we go to here and enjoyed our spot on the lawn under the giant juniper tree, sharing some laughs as always, taking in some lake wonders (I’ll share more later on some of that), exploring, and even finding a new Farmer’s Market taking place that we explored and KC and Clint “bumped” into a friend they had met while they lived here in the Summer on their RV time. KC felt it might happen, and it did! That was the first of the friend alignments that took place.
Thursday then got us up and out on a drive to the beautiful American River about an hour and forty-five minutes away for some white water rafting on class 2 and 3 rapids. I was happy to have my friends with me, since I get anxiety on rapids these days. This photo was taken at the end of the exhilarating journey.
We don’t have photos yet from the adventure itself, as they were professionally taken at certain “high” points along the river. But I assure you they are wet and wild with fun faces galore! In many of them, you can’t even see us because of the huge white water wave crashing over us.
Friday we took the day off, since rafting had us all quite beat and sore – in a good way – and made it a full beach day of relaxing, sun, sand, and water. We even ordered to-go Thai food and enjoyed it there. This day also aligned us with seeing a sweet friend of mine and birthday twin – as we share the same birthday just two years apart.
I was honored to teach her Reiki 3 last December and that’s where she also met KC online, so it was a Reiki Master reunion. We had originally planned to hike instead of beach this day, but given our need to rest we went for our favorite spot on the beach. It just so happened that Camilla had talked her introverted self to take herself on a beach date, driving up from Reno, and was led to the same spot. She was there before us and then heard my voice when we got on the beach and we giggled in delight over the synchronicity of being “in the flow.”
It was at the end of our day on the beach that we noticed the fire cloud over the mountain from a huge fire down in the valley that has been burning since fourth of July from a lightning strike. We hadn’t had any indication of it until then and as you can see on our hike-to-follow, that cloud made for some dramatic skyscapes above the range in the distance.
This is fire season, but with droughts increasing this year, it’s been thought this will be an even rougher year all across the states. The fire maps are already showing that, as you likely may know. We were grateful not to have smoke-filled air for their visit, but seeing or hearing of any fires is always sad and unnerving when near – so much destruction on all fronts, or potential destruction. I’ve been focusing a lot of energy toward sending Reiki and doing Reiki Healing Attunements, as my part in trying to support all the fire zones.
Then Saturday we were back at hiking what is likely my favorite hike around here.
Although, they all are amazing in their own way, but this one has the best of everything. Because this hike is both on the PCT – Pacific Crest Trail – and TRT – Tahoe Rim Trail, there are more thru-hikers, but it was still peaceful and filled with 10.4 miles of varied terrain and still enough Summer wildflowers to make it enchanting.
We were even gifted the very last wild iris remaining in my favorite meadow where the only large wild iris field blooms for a short window each Summer season.
We then ended the day with an evening of Shakespeare on the Beach – the first opening show of the season and the first show since closing for the pandemic in 2020.
It was packed full of giggly fun comedy, beautiful backdrops (although you can still see that fire cloud spreading – and no, KC and I didn’t plan the matching aqua tops), and sneaking in a surprise sandwich kiss for Dave – I don’t think he minded, do you?
In between it all we spent time on our back deck, in my garden while I watered and shared all of the plant and faery friends with them, eating yummies both that I made, we packed up, or picked up along the way, and some night time new series watching together, too. I even had the chance one evening to take KC on a short hike out back on our second to last day, just so she could see our go-to trail.
Check out the evening sunset lighting up the lake through the trees.
And you better believe we had some magickal encounters and a lot of nature treasure finds along the way.
On Wednesday, while I was watering in the evening, I stumbled upon this beauty in my front yard rock garden. I immediately called KC over and she was able to get these photos for me, since mine was inside.
I love my watering time, as it’s such a peaceful part of the day for connecting with my plants and the garden and forest creatures. I have frequently seen garter snakes slithering along the rocks, driveway, and garden path or sunning themselves, but this was the first time for finding a rubber boa in the yard.
It made me so happy. It’s only the third time total I’ve come across a rubber boa here in Tahoe. The other two times were on hikes and they were more coppery in color. But to know one has made our home her home makes me smile. All the snakes in Tahoe are not poisonous and that includes these beauties.
What was amazing about her is that she had just eaten and was digesting her meal. You could see the bulge in her body where that was taking place. Seeing her felt significant, energetically, and the symbolism of her state of being did as well. She stayed in this rock area the whole time I watered and I think I discovered her little home.
I hope she’ll continue making an appearance. I just love her.
But right before her, on the same day just a couple hours earlier, we’d just seen more incredible miracles of Nature.
Look at these amazing little guys we were surrounded by when at the park lake. KC and I went down to the water to soak our feet and these frogs were lined up for the sunset show to begin at water’s edge.
We both had never seen this in-between stage before, but they were frogs maturing from tadpole still with their tails. It made them look very sci-fi and even dragon-like.
They were all lined up on the shore and would take a swim, then return. It was so awesome watching them swim with powerful grace then sit with such presence and awareness on the beach.
It was very surreal like little extraterrestrial beings demonstrating the miracle of life right before our eyes.
Between them in their in-between stage, and the rubber boa also seen digesting, there’s a sense of things in process right now and moving forward, assimilating and integrating for the next stage of the journey.
There were feathers galore to be found as well (Goose, Steller’s Jay, Robin, Mallard, but my favorites were these two – a Grouse and Northern Flicker.
Each piece and every day held some kind of messenger and gift, as well as supportive energy for the present and days to come. It all held meaning for me and what’s unfolding, even if I have yet to see it all from here.
And no sooner than it all began, we found ourselves on Sunday morning saying our farewells with bitter sweetness.
Although it was quite a full week, it only fueled the desire for further life-enriching adventures on all fronts. Although we do live by our hearts, a rekindling of certain things we hold dear resurfaced with vigor and it activated my faery heart to want and dream more.
I’m revisiting some things from the last several years that stood out to me as key moments and endeavors, reviewing some choices, and feeling into how to integrate them more fully now, too.
KC and Clint left just in time, as that day the smoke engulfed the area and it was very foreboding looking. It has since cleared more, but unfortunately the fire is still not contained. The air quality will be fluctuating over the weeks to come and precautions will remain necessary to stay aware and conscious of.
I plan to use any downtime we may not be able to get outside (although so far the air quality remains good) to focus on completing extracurricular projects, the last sacred tattoo design commission I have and sessions, and clearing the slate fully for a fresh start. Looking forward to getting back to blog inspirations that have been percolating too.
We had thunder storms looming in the distance yesterday and it cooled down hugely with even a little drizzle. I’m hoping for rain and no lightning.
But what I did notice on that morning they left, as I went out to water my garden early, was that my towering lily plants (they are now 56 inches+) had bloomed!
And my first heirloom tomatoes were ready!
I was wondering when that would take place and it was the day they left and the day things in the air looked bleak. I thought to myself, “how perfect this is”…reminding me of when my birthday irises bloomed in the snow when the pandemic started.
A little piece of hope blooming in the middle of what looks like gloom.
Just like my new hope stone’s message in the garden.
Just like my sweet friend, Hope, messages me each time I see her.
The in-person adventures with our friends may have come to a close for now, but the memories and connection last forever.
We had a blast the last week with our dear friends, but we look forward to more adventures still to come. It was a very renewing week for all of us that both refreshed us and sparked inspiration and visions for greater possibilities. Personally, it also anchored in the key things for me that returned to the forefront.
Grateful for such incredible friends who bring out the best in each other. I feel blessed to have so many beautiful connections with wonderful souls.
Remember to cherish every moment as fully as you can, doing the things you love and that are your heart’s fulfillment, as we’re never promised more than this moment.
I no longer say, “one day I’ll do such and such…”
That day is right here and now.
However you feel called to fuel your heart, do that.
Savor everything with great presence.
Look for the silver linings.
And foster hope in between.
Animal Spirit Guides Looking for Their Cocreators ~ The Messengers Continue Supporting Embodied New Realities
This last Strawberry Full Supermoon was quite something. The energy was definitely strong and I heard similar from others as well, so maybe if you felt something on Thursday the 24th and had forgotten that the energy of this Moon was at hand, it might explain some of what you experienced too.
I didn’t realize until later when looking at my Sports Tracker that we had actually started our hike just one minute before the fullest point of the Full Moon at 11:40 am our time. It became no surprise that I felt a wave of exhaustion rush through that increased over the two hours we hiked to the lake from our house. This exhaustion continued on through the evening. We literally got back inside just minutes before a downpour of rain, as thunder storms loomed and growled overhead quite dramatically on our way home. It was most intense for about three to fours hours then rebalanced after I showered, ate, and cozied into the couch for a bit. Other than the evening after supporting the horse’s transition, I don’t recall exhaustion setting in like that for some time. I noted it to be my body’s way of integrating and balancing out the continued upgrades and initiatory energies.
There’s been a lot of that lately, hasn’t there?
And since then, things have felt strong, grounded, and clear again with continued reserves of energy and feeling refreshed, as well as the presence of many messengers at aligned timing. These messengers have been guiding forces in my life and as way showers they’ve been both comforting and confirming. Most of all, they inspire new landscapes and possibility when there seems none at hand. The more I connect with them, the more I connect with myself.
Guidance has been very deliberate and focused for the path ahead. I love sharing these animal spirit guides, as I know themes run through for many of us and also because I honor their presence and participation in the tapestry of life.
Most recently we had a giant dragonfly visit us on the deck with wing span of 4-5 inches wide, a continued parade of varying butterflies floating ahead down trails and all around us – a giant swallowtail equally matching the dragonfly size was amongst these, and then there was a large garter snake that slithered quickly across the trail in front of us on that Supermoon hike that knocked me out. Each pointing to significant transformational, and in some cases dramatic energy like the thunder and lightning storm.
Saturday’s hike was filled with tons of little blue damselflies that upon close inspection are extremely extraterrestrial looking.
These miniature dragonfly-like beings are delicate, but have these incredibly hybrid-like attributes that appear humanoid and otherworldly – like miniature people.
To me, their electric color and behaviors were a reflection of a merging and eclectic world of consciousness.
Then on Saturday evening, just before heading inside after tending to my garden, something caught my eye and beckoned me back. A cottontail rabbit just arrived in the yard right on queue, as twilight is their exploring time.
I ended up going back in the yard and spent twenty minutes connecting with her. I got the message this was Hope grown up when I saw those deep, soulful windows of hers.
And by the way she listened to me with those big, wondrous eyes, as if remembering my voice from our time together when she was younger.
Seeing her was a sweet gift and confirmed the messages I was hearing on other fronts of my life that I had pondered and asked about.
She also offered an air of extra “hope” to the Earth collective’s evolution at hand – and this was to be imparted to others.
There’s been continued feather treasures that included twice finding osprey feathers – the first time one and the second time two, just two days ago.
I always cherish osprey as the between worlds messenger – the only bird of prey that actually dives into the water where others just pluck from the top of the water. This makes osprey unique in not only navigating the air element, but the watery depths as well. Another beautiful bridge between worlds.
And Sunday’s parade of geese on our beach day concluded recent guidance in the vein of avian support, although I also supported the geese as their guardian once again protecting them from misguided cruelty and unconscious hands.
I have a strong kinship with them as family – but then I’ve always felt that with the souls in the animal kingdom since I was a child.
Bird wisdom has been on high and makes sense, as I see them as guides between worlds and how to merge these. And in fact, our sweet family of robins who nested outside our front door, have left for brighter horizons. That feels symbolic of a new life adventure beginning that is fresh and detached from the comforts of the old. I wish them well on their new adventure and although bitter sweet to see them go, it’s the same kind of feeling I get each time a door closes and opens – like now.
But then there was this big and beautiful crayfish discovered at the edge of the water.
Although no longer Earth bound, the life force was strong and I was instantly reminded of scarab – once again returning to Egyptian energy. Like the mysterious underworld scarab who speaks to immortality, resurrection, creation and renewal, growth, cycles of life and death, protection, healing, and transformation, crayfish is also a symbol of regeneration, underworld energies pointing us to pay attention to our intuition, dreams, and subconscious, growth – helping us shed our old skin, beliefs, and habits to move forward in life, and protection through responsible and appropriate reversal of direction.
This beauty was gorgeous shades of turquoise, aqua, and sea green and as you can see, as large as my hand – the largest I’ve seen so far here.
These jewel-colored crustaceans that graze on algae are actually an invasive species that were introduced here to Marlette Lake that feeds into Lake Tahoe in 1895. There’s an estimated 300 million of them. Their presence has impact on the lake’s clarity because they in fact also stimulate further algae growth. So, that’s an interesting irony to ponder.
And going along with beetle and scarab energy, yesterday I came home from our biking and beach picnic day feeling something crawling on my stomach. I lifted up my shirt to find a black beetle. I noted that this day also involved instant manifestation of thinking of feathers and heart stones and finding them immediately after.
So, it wasn’t a surprise that since I’d been reflecting upon scarab energy, a beetle of my own appeared on my solar plexus. How it got there and manifested is a mystery, but then the Great Mystery is a welcomed friend in my life.
But in terms of Egyptian energy themes continuing to roll through, you’ll recall I mentioned falcon’s rare and mysterious appearance in the last post. So the flash of scarab through crayfish was an echoing whisper drawing me to look again at this strong energy channeling through. Falcon is connected to Horus and I always had a very powerful affinity with him. I connect Horus to The Middle Way, as well as the fox we saw, as it was a gray fox – not black or white, but in between – that showed up.
And then barn owl also spoke recently – she comes through in very rare and deliberate ways – and has been a constant companion for many cosmic experiences over the years. I’ve only had the rare opportunity twice to see one in person, which took place to and from our nine week Winter adventure, but usually this messenger comes in the between times of dreamscapes and portal visions to summon a new era of Cosmic merging that is unfolding and a time of invitation to something more and beyond.
This time she appeared in vision of the merging of worlds and parts of me/us that are at the forefront of importance and whenever she flies into my awareness I know nothing will be the same again. Her presence is otherworldly and if you peer into her eyes you can’t run away from the depths of who you are and of consciousness in totality. When I am in her presence, I see all of me through different eyes and that hauntingly beautiful depth she pierces is one that sticks as reminder while I forge forward.
She and Falcon both brought personal messages of integration to me recently, but also confirmed that the energy and medicine they carry was of support collectively for the evolution we are experiencing.
While I was away on silent retreat, one of the messages that came through in fact involved falcon and barn owl, but due to the emotional waters I also immersed exploration with, narwhal was included. Narwhal is another rare being I have danced with and as the unicorn of the sea, her mystical presence whispers a time of deep renewal at the DNA level that also is one of merging the worlds into embodiment. Hers comes through a watery invitation to reclaim emotional depths and shadowy crevices to bring through majestic being that can move in and out of
I find it no coincidence that as I started writing about narwhal and her invitation to watery depths within that a thunderstorm just started and rain is coming down between the last rays of evening.
I also find it interesting that I “happen” to have three cherished animal guide totems of each of these that have been helping to navigate life in these recent years after our time in the Magick Bus.
The nudge I received, while away, was to offer these most cherished treasures of friends up to the collective. And when each of these animal messengers showed up as they did when I asked for confirmation, each in their own way – through guidance and dream visions – it was done.
This coincides with inner transformation, but also literal transformation that took place in my outer world – particularly my office and shared room with Astrid that acts as a portal embodiment for the paths we navigate. We felt called to focus the energy on a particular leg of the journey we are currently venturing down and in doing so everything got a facelift to match.
In doing so, many things also had to go not just to make room for the new, but to open and close doors that had merged into being and are no longer separate from my daily experience.
That bitter and sweet again of realizing the beauty of where you are and where you journeyed from, but knowing to keep moving forward.
And this leads to the calling these animal messengers are putting out to find their new cocreators.
Falcon, barn owl, and narwhal are three enchanted beings I adore, and because of how much I love them, I asked for confirmation to appease my human heart that was sad to see them go. I always honor what comes through even if at first it seems tough to say goodbye. They always remind me that since the energies are merged, there is never a goodbye. It’s simply an unconditional release of doing what’s for the highest good and remembering that what was received will always be with me.
And since we are all connected, where ever they are called and whom ever they journey with, is a part of me too. And so I celebrate the joy of those connections and openings, just as much as if they were my own.
I’ve never been one to store things away that to me are alive and pulsing with energy. I couldn’t do that with my giant crystals (or any other enchanted beings that have been in my life) when we left in the RV, as it felt wrong. Boxing up their energy was like locking them up in darkness, unable to fulfill their life’s work. I always had to ask myself how I would feel if something stored me away for an unknown time? It would be like caging a butterfly or breaking a wild horse’s spirit.
So like then, when the message that they were ready to move on and not be stored just to “keep” or be attached to them, came to me, the same happened now. I couldn’t bear to store these vital beings and in fact each spirit expressed that’s because they’re ready to move on and support another now.
There is a story that goes with each – both my own personal story and stories shared by their visionary artist who brought them to life. Some of these I’ll share so you can listen to their energy and if they whisper something to your heart. Some of it I can share more intimately if you feel so called to them.
They are each one-of-a-kind, custom, collector’s creations that are quite valuable in more ways than one. They are all hand-crafted by two different artists with intention and love and with very intricate detailing. You’ll notice how alive they are even in photos.
I will make them available only here on my blog to the soul who feels them as their companion for this current walk into a new reality where depths of your parts can merge, heal, and anchor more fully and they can be your muse of inspiration in all that you desire to create here forth. I don’t feel called to post them on social media or in my Etsy shop, as I get the sense that laser focus of energetic alignment will unfold here via my friends who so generously devote time and energy to delve and journey deeper with me through all that I share.
If you’re feeling their call, please CONTACT ME directly – not as a comment on this post – with your intention. I can then further discuss details with you via email.
Serious inquiries only please. ~ UPDATE BARN OWL & FAERY QUEEN & NARWHAL ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE
Payment plans will be available to support the perfect pairing of soul partnership and alignment. They will be offered at their original value/pricing plus shipping.
If for some reason there is more than one soul feeling called, I’ll go by first response and if for any reason something doesn’t work out with the first person, I’ll let the next person know. This happens a lot where energy shifts, so I’m used to a little energetic shuffling that takes place and always interested how that unfolds.
They will remain available until they find a cocreator. Once the connection has been confirmed, I’ll update this post with that information. So, you may continue to send interest as long as they are available.
Due to the size and delicate nature of the larger pieces, international shipping isn’t a great idea for those. It would be quite costly too, so they will only be available to souls within the U.S. The smaller piece is easier to ship anywhere. That said, if you feel strongly one is meant for you, please email me through the contact form above and we can discuss things to see if it makes sense for you.
Below you’ll find images taken by the artist and some I took myself, along with the stories they wrote in some cases, or little snippets of their essence, and a little insight and a blog I wrote in other cases.
Each will arrive with little details that were originally sent to me and some I added with them and in the case of the barn owl, I will be happy to send the beautiful lichen branch from the forest here that I’ve had with her since her arrival to me that creates a magickal realm for her.
For anyone who might be interested in more than one, please contact me with your intention and we can look at options.
For anyone not called to cocreate with them more intimately or have to have them physically in your space, I hope you enjoy their energy and messages here – perhaps aligning with just what you needed to see, hear, and feel right now. For this reason alone, it feels important to share them here with you.
Barn Owl & Faery Queen ~ NO LONGER AVAILABLE
~ She has a wing span of two feet or more depending on her wing positioning and around 14 inches from talons to faery crown. Detailing is exquisite. In person will blow you away. She is meant to be hung and has string attached to her back to do so, but you could prop her as desired and move her to different spaces in your room or home as needed. She will take your breath away – both barn owl and faery queen – two souls merged as One.
The Dream Weaver by Phoebe
She is the celestial muse, moving between worlds she carries songs of creation, magical insight, knowledge, and the old ways.
Her harp was crafted from a shell brought up to her from the depths of the ocean by Mac Lir.
She is whale song and owl song—deer song, and star song.
Poets and painters know her well, she has moved through them since the first brush laid ochre and charcoal against stone, and the first songs flowed out into the world.
In Ireland they called her Canola. It was she who gifted the very first harp to the people.
Leave offerings to her in the crevice of an old tree, bits of silver, three hairs braided together with three strands of grass, moon-white shells, flower petals—and she will weave her magic, tying strands of inspiration from the otherworld through your dreams.
She is creation.
I have a beautiful branch with lichen that I’ve loved perching above her back when I would hang her from areas of the room to create the effect of descending from the heavens through the night forest canopy to enter into this realm. This can be included to be with her or not. Other details included to be discussed if interested.
Falcon and Faery Rider
~ She is just over nine inches tall and about eleven and a half inches long front tail tip to head. These beauties stand on their own and can be perched anywhere. Again exquisite detailing that will mesmerize you in person. These creations are alive in every sense of the word. Faery Rider has a pouch that she collects acorn caps of the oak tree in. These are real little branches and caps.
Orla and her Merlin by Phoebe (Merlins are small, fierce falcons)
Today I met Orla, who shared with me that her name means ‘golden princess’, which seemed rather fitting as she sat there on the back of her Merlin, shimmering with every shade of gold.
When I asked what they planned to do with all of the caps they had collected they told me that they would be sanded down and used as dishes for their big harvest feast. Orla had gathered a rooster feather as decoration as well. I smiled as they both flew off in search of more acorns, autumn is definitely here, soon the trees will start to change.
Narwhal, Unicorn of the Sea ~ NO LONGER AVAILABLE
~She is about eight and a quarter inches long and about three and a quarter inches wide from fin to fin. Very delicate and endearing, but magickal through and through with glassy beads and a tiny limpet shell upon her back. Her tooth/horn is made from clay and painted with tiny stars shining upon it. She comes with a delicate string attached to her back so she can be hung where ever magick is desired. Or she can sit on any surface as well with ease. This little Narwhal is pure enchantment with the most delicate of features and detailing. She’s a reminder that magick does roam this Earth even in the seen worlds. A sweet friend stepping out of a faery tale come true to help merge worlds into One.
Narwhal by Lucy
‘Below the thick icy drifts where polar bear tread and gull song fills the sky there is another world. You would be forgiven for thinking that nothing could possibly survive beneath but life fills even the harshest places.
The strangest creatures roam the inky blue. Bright eyed seals slip by seamlessly and ghostly belugas cry mournfully for what nobody knows. Selkies and sirens we have come to know through fairytale and folklore but a unicorn? One without hoof or mane.
She is a Narwhal, unicorn of the seas. Her life has been spent adrift the tides and the ocean has kissed her with gleaming barnacles upon her back and limpets that cling tightly. She clicks and chatters amongst her pod, shy to the surface but sociable in the depths. Nobody truly knows why she has her twisted tooth but in my dreams I’ve seen her, on a starbright night she broke through the ice to pierce the stars from the dark and take them below to nurture and grow so that she may build an underwater sky of her very own.’
And here is a link to a dream message I received once where Narwhal visited me, to include some of her symbolism:
Narwhal speaks to me of balance, mystery, depths and freedom.
I haven’t shared all of the medicine and messages that these animal spirit guides represent, as I’ve been steering a bit more away from that, only providing some information when I feel called. In this way, they can speak to the individual as is relevant to each. There are collective themes with messages, but we each receive the energy in different ways. So, I’d prefer you to journey with your animal spirit guides and messengers in the way that feels right to you.
I hope you’ve enjoyed these three magickal beings and another walk through the experience of messengers, as I share of the ones that are guiding the ever-changing path of evolution in my own life.
Perhaps these stories and shares are merging your own experiences with messengers around you into a more seamless and sweet one. You have many friends and much support always by your side.
The messengers seek us out. They find us. We needn’t go searching. Merely open our eyes to the gift of their presence and there they are.
Which messengers have you been working with recently, or maybe for years, that have supported you through the ebbs and flows of life?
I’m always interested to hear who is showing up for others, as it’s very telling of the shifts collectively taking place.
You are the first garden you must learn to tend. There is no one else that can do this as well as you. How little or how much you care about this garden, shows. The kinds of things you nourish yourself with, how much you cultivate certain practices as important, and the things you choose to give energy to mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually will have an effect on how you show up in the world.
Life used to seem so complicated to me until I realized that I was the only one making it that way. By buying into all of these ideologies that were part of “this or that” ways of believing, I created a lot of nonsensical pressures that had absolutely nothing to do with the essence of me.
And yes, that included the spiritual realms I was drawn to move more into as I journeyed through life.
The bottom line that I learned, is that I never really wanted to belong or feel assured by any particular group or movement. I always had only desired to be contently me – just like Nature and the Cosmos both are.
Everyone has their own journey, but it took completely undoing myself, stripping away all the energetic debris that had brushed off of everyone onto me, in order to do that.
I still fully believe had it not been for jumping into an RV for a year and a half to immerse in nature, I would not be here still. And yet it’s also on that adventure into the unknown that literally the old story me walked out of my body in a river, and a new story walked in.
I would never be the same again, nor could I go back ever again – even if I wanted to.
Ever since then, I’ve been recalibrating what it feels like to be in this body with a fresh soul perspective. It’s taken time to feel things out, explore the possibilities to cultivate, and decide where to go from here.
Kind of like being a child all over again, but having a different level of consciousness.
It’s much like my garden after Winter’s frost and snow.
Everything is fertile, lively, and jubilant to feel the warmth of the Sun, wiggle, stretch, and unfurl every inch of life loose from the soil, see what will be possible in terms of abundant growth, wonder what will bloom or what will wait to gain greater strength for the next season or year, and what just goes all out to create the most incredible burst of life right here and now.
With less than two years until I turn 50, I see what the previous me who was just starting out in body then, had felt all along about this time period of my life. I always experienced things as if I was outside of myself watching myself go through everything and although knew better, relinquished to the feeling of purpose it all had to just go through it. I felt on some level that the real choices and freer me would begin in the latter half of my life.
That earlier life was both a mirage to keep me occupied and undo patterns and illusions, while things in the world were playing out, and also an intricate labyrinthian journey to the center of me.
I was on a complex crash course so I could re-enter the world with simplicity.
Stripping down to the bare me.
And literally unzipping my body suit so that a whole new emanation of myself could slip in upon the old one’s release.
Every time I look at my garden – each season, each day, and several times a day – I see this release taking place in every moment while new life steps in.
There’s reason my garden is just steps outside of my creative space and office. There is a mirroring that takes place every minute I make a new choice.
I find it easier and easier to let go of things and make peace my daily goal. I experience the simplicity of life unfolding as its own work of art at every stage. I finally feel comfortable in my skin in a way that both honors my human expression that I decided to have at this time on Earth AND my Cosmic connection that merges with me daily in gratitude for the opportunity to experience it all and live out the potentials I can contribute with others to create.
It’s as if both the land all around us where we live – the forests, mountains, lakes, and meadows, as well as the land I’m nurturing into a garden and yard while also supporting its wild, raw nature to do as it pleases, have become one with me.
And the more I drop into that deeper connection within, the more I seem to physically change alongside Nature, naturally.
I love to adorn myself like my flowers and join the dance, but I also love to be raw like the soil, rocks, bark, and moist sprouts. I feel whole in any expression, but only walk in expressions that are me in every moment of my wild heart’s resonance – not for anyone else and not to mirror anyone else.
We are each our own flower and plant within the garden of life – no less or more than any other. Yet, what the land, Nature, and Earth teach us, is that great care is needed to support a thriving, harmonious and abundant garden.
Yes, that’s you!
It’s amazing how much of that rainbow and portal energy keeps showing up in photos, as you’ll see below, especially when I’m out being with all of it, standing stronger in my essence, nurturing myself alongside my copartnering outdoor realm, and adding recognition of the magick that is here with little touches of enchanted beings and portals of my own.
I mentioned that I would share some photos of the yard and garden before things really start to emerge and today’s Earth Day felt like the best time to do that, along with messages of tending to our inner and outer gardens as being equally essential and worth the devotional investment.
I like to document the before and after and to see how much things evolve from onset of one season to the next.
I’ve taken these photos in this post over a period of the last two to three weeks, during which several new friends have joined the garden.
Most of them are solar lights, as I truly love the twilight and night magick they create, but some are simply sweet souls who spoke to me. Some I’ve already shared, so I’ll only introduce the new ones.
We have this cute little blossom snail who lives near one of the new solar faery houses at the pathway entrance.
Then there’s these ever-precious ones – a rabbit riding a tortoise. I just HAD to bring them home as they remind me of Joy and Gaia who were best friends and I really was feeling my Russian Tortoise, Gaia, needed to be part of the garden here along with the rabbits and magickal beings. They are so life-like, it’s truly endearing.
Incredibly, but not surprisingly, look at the energy that showed up RIGHT after I placed them by the gnome and faery portal door at the base of one of the guardian trees where there are also crystals laid in the ground as a path in front of the door.
It took me a little while to hear where they wanted to go, but I think they’re happy here, don’t you?
Then there’s this beautiful mushroom blossom solar light that sits to the right, next to the pathway.
It has a monarch and poppy – like the ones that grow in my garden – on top.
And last, this gorgeous, enchanted moon faery with solar light orb. I just love how she’s holding a star and blowing it a kiss.
And of course you already saw these two twin white bunnies who are ever-so wonderfully overseeing the growth of my yellow lilies.
It’s one happy, secret faery garden family! And still growing!
I have many ideas that are incubating like the seeds beneath the soil.
Check out all these happy wildflower babies reaching for the sunshine!
The rainbow energy and portals seem to confirm a Cosmic smile of the harmony being created here too.
And the forest animals are all expressing their happiness as well. Their fountain and bowl are filled regularly with fresh water, which brings every variety of bird in for baths and drinks, along with chipmunks and squirrels enjoying a nice refreshment too. There’s a chickadee couple that loves to visit me when I’m out watering the garden, but it was this Steller’s Jay just two days ago that was the sweetest.
Usually the Steller’s Jay are much louder and like to boldly vocalize their dominion over certain spaces or at least express their boundaries and voices. This one started off talking in similar fashion, but the tone was different and wanted my attention. Then when he knew he had it his voice softened into what would be similar to a cat’s purr. It was a little bit like a sweet cooing that doves and pigeons make, but more. It reminded me of our parakeets that would fluff out and nuzzle into us warmly with affection. This was a cuddly sweet talk that felt like he was so happy and if I’d been on the branch with him, he would have snuggled into me and expressed his joy.
A love song and dance perhaps? He was definitely quite comfy and pleased.
Equally pleased is the yard out front that’s in a dance of yellow daffodils and wild dandelions right now with even more still on the way that are on their own blooming timelines. We have a large tree on the lawn that will be surrounded by blooms soon, which will look like a faery ring. These current daffodils followed my late Winter, pre-Spring, birthday purple irises. And there will be tulips coming soon too. I intend to plant a ton more bulbs come Autumn.
Step-by-step things evolve.
I spent time clearing the yard and garden, tidying old growth up, and planted a ton of wild flower seeds in the garden to add to all the wild growth already sprouting like crazy. Tiny clover is beginning to return on the lawn in patches. I’m looking forward to seeing it all filled in again. For now, this is a transitional time period where the brown and dried remains of Winter turn over, mirroring our own in between phases.
I’m still waiting for my favorite store to get in their herbs, veggies, and flowers, so I can add some things to my Garden Tower and garden. For now, I did find four little sweet basil plants I added to the Tower for Astrid and they smell SO good.
Well, all of what’s already growing back in the Tower does. The sweet basil is doing really well alongside all of the lovely regrowth from last year of mint, lavender, strawberry plants, wild flowers, thyme, parsley, and other herbs. The basil plants are the only new babies I’ve planted so far. Everything else you see everywhere is what’s naturally coming in on its own.
Incredibly, I even have two baby pine trees that have decided to make the Tower their incubation realm. They’ve been growing there since last Spring. I even have a couple more growing in pots. If they actually are able to stay healthy and strong, I’ll likely let them grow a bit more and then try to transplant them. They seem happy for now though with their friends.
Perhaps the tree frog that made the Tower her home last year wanted her own forest here too. 🙂 I hope she’ll return.
Here in the mountains things take a little longer since temperatures are colder longer and more variable, but there are always those plants and blooms who like to do their own thing and just go all out when ever they please – just as I mentioned before.
We actually had a little snow last night that I saw remnants of on the deck railings, rain the night before, and some snow a day or two before that. It all melts immediately, but things are not predictable here.
Every one of these plants and blooms has a little bit of me in them and vice versa. So, too, does the variety of terrain in the mountains that we have. Even the weather mirrors my own shifting waves of energy and wild unpredictability. We share a symbiotic relationship and the more increased time I spend outdoors, which is daily as it is, the more I relax into me.
And the more me I am, the easier it is to ride any energy currents that flow in and out around me.
The more me I am, the more easily I recognize what is me and what is not me.
The more in touch with myself I feel, the more I can handle things that pop up and they aren’t so surprising.
The more I tend to the garden of me, the more peace, flow, vitality, and compassion I experience.
Our Spring Scorpio Full Moon on this coming Monday night of the 26th is going to be a Super Pink Moon – the first Supermoon of the year.
This could be a more difficult and deeply emotional or triggering Moon to navigate through due to the challenging planetary aspects surrounding it that may bring to surface some unexpected things. With Sun in Taurus and Moon in Scorpio right now, we are being prompted to look at the contrasts of form and transformation, personal joy with the simple and sensual aspects of life and the intangible complexities of shared things, building and comfort and destruction and change, and how we can find balance with these.
This is a time for going deeper and exploring our values and the far-reaching effects they have. While we are in a Taurus cycle of grounding spirit in flesh, Scorpio then calls up the mysterious, secretive, and repressed so that we may need to be more vulnerable in order to understand ways of finding peace within ourselves even when the world seems upside down, or when we are being called to deconstruct, let go, and recreate what we thought was the holy grail of our lives.
The more we can tend our inner gardens, the more we understand the Nature of things and how to partner with them more effectively, if in fact we desire seeing a more thriving world and Earth.
Be bold, brave and unafraid to create those massive Cosmic ripples – this was yesterday’s message from Bald Eagle.
This last photo is from yesterday’s bike ride. The day before, while riding along the lake, I had a vision of Bald Eagle flying near, although did not see one with my eyes. This continued when I was sun bathing on the deck later, feeling Bald Eagle close and like he could land on the roof any minute. Little did I know that the next day we would actually have a visit.
When we arrived to the lake we biked to Dave, who didn’t know I had been thinking about Eagle, asked “When was the last time we saw that one Eagle at the lake here?”
At that moment Eagle flew overhead and landed in the tree across the lake. You can catch glimpse of him here with a second Eagle to the left in the shadows.
I love stuff like that.
When we’re in tune with ourselves, everything conspires in unison.
Eagle symbolizes freedom and courage to look ahead, the value of vulnerable truth and revealing honesty, liberation, electrifying inner vision clarity, embody the Spring, dawn, and new life, and to Native Americans are Earthly incarnations of the Thunderbird spirit who shoots lightning bolts from her/his eyes to invoke revitalization, rebirth, creation, and transformative healing. Eagles carry the messages of spirit and are the divine channels to receive these from.
A perfect messenger for this time of year, the upcoming Full Moon, and the unfolding energies on the planet right now.
Happy Earth Day!
I don’t know if it’s that Spring is in the air, the Moon was just full, that the Cosmos keeps an extra potent rhythm while moving across the astrological dance floor these days, if we’re catching up with our future selves and time has finally blurred, or all of these, but there’s a definitive change I keep feeling….and do even see.
It shows up in the light – vortexes, orbs, energy fields, coded grids, an array of rainbow explosions.
It shows up in accelerated time and instant manifestations.
It shows up in glowing faces and vibrant auras I see and feel in others, as well as huge leaps and expansion more are saying “yes” to.
It shows up in extra brilliance and surreal qualities to landscapes before me.
It shows up in increased amounts of incredible artistry, creativity, teamwork, rooted values, and inspired architectural plans for the inner and outer landscapes of life.
It shows up in increased synchronicities, vitality, downloads, extra prophetic or clear insights, and more abundant reservoirs of energy I’m, and others are, experiencing.
It even shows up in extra exuberance, bunny binkies, and deeper connecting I see from Astrid.
Yesterday’s Libra Full Moon peaked right in the middle of the online Crystal Healing & Reiki class I taught – a class filled with beautiful souls and energy that felt heightened.
I noticed an increased Cosmic presence channeling through, which has become more the norm for me these days. It’s not only an external sense of this, but more so of recognizing it within myself and others. While I know we are spirit in body, this has become an increasingly conscious and nearly tangible experience of both being it in wholeness and observing all the little nuances of it in its parts.
It’s hard to really put in words, as it’s more of an experience. The cool thing is, at least some of what I’m trying to explain DOES actually show up in photos like the ones you see here of the incredible energy fields at the creek behind the house that create quite a portal.
These first four photos are of a spot I love out back in the forest that I walked to on Saturday – the day before teaching the class I mentioned.
I like to get out in Nature daily, but especially so when teaching classes where I know we’ll be talking a lot about energy, experiencing it, channeling it, and stepping into an accelerated or heightened consciousness state.
And whenever crystals are involved, you’re bound to call in some Cosmic love and receive some downloads.
So, Nature called and I even explored a new little area that you can see in the next two photos that equally had its own energy vortex going on amidst the ancient rock beings.
I actually jogged up a hill to these rocks to avoid some people walking with their dogs because I was really just wanting to have a quiet preparation day with the only interaction being with dear Terra – our Mother Earth.
It was the first time I’d explored this particular outcropping, but I’m glad my support of what I was feeling directed me their way.
I ended up climbing around them for a bit, before heading to the creek, finding several doorways around each corner and another potent energy portal.
It felt activating in a very energized, not depleting, way so that class yesterday, in fact, was quite supported with what ever was downloaded and I was quite supported with a full well to draw upon.
The weather the last few days has also shifted into more of a true mountain Spring experience with temperatures in the mid to upper 50’s. Here at this high altitude the Sun is felt more directly and so it was actually perfect for soaking in some vitamin D rays on the deck – also adding to absorbing the Sun’s light codes as an upgrade.
These last two Nature photos are from the post-class 5+ mile hike down to the lake, as my way to immerse in the wild, share gratitude, and receive all of Nature’s good vibes she has to share.
I was especially taken by the brilliance dancing on and in the water. Those light codes again felt super alive and strong, inviting me closer. I knelt down, immersing my hands in the refreshing coolness, which shifted something.
Later I noticed my hands, especially the left one, getting hot when thinking or talking about something in a way that engaged all of me.
There’s an overall sense of upgrades not just in motion, but truly anchoring in more.
My sense is that although it’s an accelerated process, it will likely be noticed only by those with curiosity to explore it. Otherwise, the upgrades are overlooked.
Although it simply is the natural state of life ever-evolving, what is being experienced is an exquisite masterpiece so finely created that its evolution may not be noted until generations later.
We are shifting into a time of “being” and “knowing” – a time of transparency and wholeness, of remembering and navigating forward by the guidance of our hearts’ wisdom. A time of visionary creating and multi-dimensional awareness.
It’s a work of art in motion of being and each of us have leading roles on the collective stage of Life on Earth.
Things are shifting.
Upgrades are happening.
Transformation is in process.
Rebirth, renewal, recreation….
Can you feel it?
Even though we continue to experience days of snow and we are getting out to ski still, Spring is pushing through here in the high mountain altitudes. It’s so exciting to see all my iris, tulip and daffodil bulbs reaching for the sunshine across our yard. They are eager to join the dance in celebration of the Equinox here shortly.
My birthday irises being the first to blossom, as you know, but the others are not far behind. And there’s much more on the way than what I captured here to share with you.
Soon it will be garden time. I have a ton of wildflower seeds ready to join last year’s perennials I planted and I’ll of course pick up some new beauties to add to what will return. My garden and garden tower are already showing signs of returning growth. It’s always fun to see what surprises the Fae of the land have in store.
Every season has so much enchantment, mystery, and gifts to offer – each reflecting our inner landscapes and sharing with us the answers to how we can more effectively align with life.
And speaking of life alignment, I was unable to share this video thank you the last time, but forgot I could upload it to my YouTube Channel. So, I pasted it in below, as it was important to me to connect more personally with each of you here as well, to extend deep gratitude to everyone sharing interest and courage to join this space and invite me to walk with you.
The five month immersives that I refer to can be found here, along with how to move forward with applying:
The video was taken last week, right before the New Moon in Pisces and Sunday’s Intuition Class, but the message of gratitude is timeless.
Immersives begin the week of April 12th and March 20th is the last day to turn in applications – that’s now only two days away. I’m processing the last ones I’ve received so far, today and tomorrow, and it looks like two of the three spots are filled currently.
Stay tuned for a little Spring Equinox surprise.
I know that it’s been a very intense and challenging year for so many and on a global scale we’re not only going through all the growing pains together, but we’re all learning how to navigate things one day at a time within a new framework we haven’t yet experienced. Nothing is predictable and nothing can be changed by doing the same things we’ve always done. It’s a completely new territory we’re embarking on and the best way I can see us getting through it is by inviting more kindness and compassion to anchor in our hearts toward ourselves, each other, and the planet at large.
To every one of you, know that while you may have felt isolated, you’ve never truly been alone. Not only are so many beings supporting us at this momentous time on Earth, but we’ve all shared in the collective feelings flowing through the airwaves, and like many others, I’ve also carried you in my heart through every thought and action I’ve had and taken this year.
Astrid and I want you to know that you are special, you are loved, and if you’re here with us right now, you have purpose that is needed.
Everyone has gone through different experiences this year, but even in the worst cases, I still can’t help but feel like 2020 had a gift or two for us in bringing everything to a pivotal place we can launch forward from in the coming years. I feel so strongly the support from souls who have departed, as without the confines of any limitations they once experienced, they are now able to help even more and guide us through our hearts. Let us honor and share love for the brave souls, near or far, who are giving so much to the collective.
Rather than dwell on the year, now soon to be behind us, I’d rather bring light to today and how we might focus our energies to work together toward the year ahead.
One of the things that’s stood out as an important key piece for moving forward is how chaos, challenges, and surprises have given rise to the need to create your own balance point within it all – that place within your heart, or your center. I, and many others have spoken around this quite often, and I feel it’s consistently been rooting as a message worth repeating. This is one great way to shift your focus and find your anchor of peace, rather than constantly living in reaction to the world around you or having outside influences take you off-course.
You must be your own true North – the focal point that will help navigate you through even the darkest of nights and murkiest of days. The steady guide that knows how to reframe experiences through curious observation, so as not to become them.
Trusting your own instincts, inner guidance, and higher self nudges is going to continue being important, the more things unfold and get confusing as to what or who to listen to or trust out there. So much of what is on the surface is not what it seems on any side of the spectrum, but eventually truths will be revealed. In the meantime, your own inner compass is the best gauge, and the best way to hear that is to practice consistent listening to and trusting of what comes through your heart.
I feel like we’re going to be in a process – one of transitioning from old to new – for quite some time, so finding your center will continue to be important while things adjust, come more to light, play out, and get revealed. Building strength around that inner core and finding or reaching out to supportive and aligned friends, family, guides, or systems that can assist you with that will be of great help.
So much old stuff and outmoded patterns are in process of being released and that’s like a worldwide collective detox in motion. If you’ve ever experienced any kind of cleanse or purge in your life then you know that it can be pretty turbulent and uncomfortable stuff, right? Add in a whole planet going through that cleanse at the same time, at varying degrees within a huge spectrum of possible reactions, and you’ve got quite a hot zone we’re living in.
With that bigger picture perspective, perhaps it can be a reminder when you get ready to react that everyone is going through the same challenges and pains of this change and mourning process. Perhaps that can help you to be more present and mindful in responding instead, stepping back to breathe, or simply sending love in the direction of a growing pain playing out, or a fear trying to hold on for dear life.
Maybe we can each try more to be a heart bridge for others and for circumstances that pop up. Realize that the insecurity and pain of change is what causes fear. And fear isn’t the authentic expression of anyone’s soul. It’s a temporary story trying to survive within a new framework it’s not used to. Fear is simply part of the cleansing and discomfort around the transition process, before something new anchors. Let us be the way-showers and anchors for others when they are blinded with fear. And let us be willing to reach out vulnerably for help when fear also takes over our own reactions. Communicating from the heart creates a bridge where fear can be diffused.
As I think I mentioned before, I’ve never felt more that things I and others similar to me have been working on, and even who I am/we are and my/our purpose/s, are more relevant or more applicable than they are/I am/we are, now. It’s as if that undercurrent that kept us going, kept us hoping, kept us believing and working toward for all of these years – perhaps even since we were born – is finally here. So, this isn’t the time to give up hope. On the contrary, this is the time for you to truly shine.
I used to feel like a fish out of water, which is a relevant description for my Pisces self on Earth, but no more.
We all have different roles lighting up across the grid right now, but in each of our ways and within the scope of our unique energy frequencies, we are helping to birth the new and build bridges through the heart as a way to get there together for the highest good.
Let’s continue to help raise the vibrations of the collective, by working as a team and thinking about how our thoughts, feelings, and actions affect the whole. While you focus on your individual role, keep a simultaneous vision of the bigger picture at work and how it’s all connected.
Let’s work at being more present in the now and release the need to control years down the road or trying to predict things. It’s no longer possible, even for the psychics amongst us, to predict exacts. We may get a sense of things, but the how’s and when are truly a day-to-day unfolding. So be here now. That’s what’s on the table to embrace fully and create as richly as possible. And every now moment will then create and weave the next.
By immersing your energy here, you ignite greater momentum toward manifesting things, than living in either the past or the future. Remember that anxiety and fear are based on not living in the moment.
We’re going to increasingly see the coming together of aligned groups with shared visions and purpose. When this happens it raises the collective vibration even more, simply by the merging of hearts. I have seen this happen in classes and retreats in the past, but more than ever during this year with our online group class gatherings and the soul family that merged. It creates the impetus for huge upgrades, expansion, and greater sense of essence embodiment.
And as much as I saw and felt this unfold for the people brought together in our classes, I also received through 2020’s connections, which exponentially raised life to a whole new level.
2020 definitely was a collective focused reset that called us each to embrace different immediate paths than we might have thought the year would be about. For some this meant more individual/inner time, which will create the highest good for the collective by shifting the focus of your life and the way you used to do things that has impact for the whole. For others, it was about how our individual gifts were needed for the greater good and stepping up, rather than back, was important for the highest good.
Although I’m not making any individual predictions, I do sense that 2021 for me will be another reset and a very new creative expression of my soul frequency will be in motion yet again, which will shift how things play out and look from what 2020’s surprises brought. Starting off 2021 in a different literal and creative space for 9 weeks, I feel is no coincidence – just as I had started off 2020 intuitively by taking a 3 month sabbatical.
To add to a lot of energetic collective shifts upcoming in the New Year, February 12th will ring in the Chinese New Year of Ox – which is my native Chinese Zodiac sign.
This will herald a collective year of building toward goals, solid commitment and consistency to manifesting tangible results, taking concrete steps rather than getting lost in illusions, possibility for prosperous enrichment and creative refresh, family, emotional unions, and value focus, and a rise in need of teamwork, loyalty, intuition, versatility, courage, ethics, professional discipline, solid efforts, and greater stability. Overall, it can be a good year for renewal, completing and grounding what was started, and opportunity for success in new ventures.
So what do you want to create, change, heal, or complete in 2021?
Creative energy is center stage and streaming through for us to harness in each of our own unique ways. Creative life force energy is not just about drawing, painting, making music, writing, etc. It’s simply about creating or producing something – and that can be anything from an idea made tangible, starting a family, creating jobs for others, beginning a new venture or entrepreneurial business, making a new recipe, planting a garden, etc.
I know, for myself, that the visions I’ve had are calling me forth in 2021 to ground. And so that is where I’m being led, one consistent-determined-ox-like-step at a time.
Happy renewing and grounding 2021!
Remember who you are.
May all possibilities be open to you.
In love and creative magick,
Tania & Astrid
P.S. (Quick Reminders: The Magick Rabbit Etsy Shop is now closed until I return in March. I have also closed the Intentional Art and Sacred Tattoo Designs, all Intuitive Energy Guide Sessions & Reiki Healing Attunements, as well as all Online Reiki Classes. February 7th’s class is Full. The only available thing you can still sign up for is March 14th’s Crystal Healing & Reiki ~ Deepening through Integrative Healing Sessions)
The next time you hear from me I’ll be in a temporary, new Winter location. See you in 2021!
Although this year has been a mixed bag of experience for everyone, it’s also flown by quite rapidly. Some people have harnessed 2020 as a year to make the changes that have been knocking, take advantage of the more inward time, tend to heart desires and what’s of most value in life, and strengthen voices with an array of action from visionary to reactionary.
I’ve also seen my own life change in response to everything, making this a huge year of quite profound, transformational twists and turns – many of them unexpected, but very warmly received.
Amongst it all, I’ve found a new layer of richness in returning to platforms that now cycle through in a different way. It’s been hugely rewarding to be there for others taking giant leaps, while bunny hopping myself. 🙂
Today’s post introduces a few new additions to these platforms, that come in response to both what you’ve been putting out there and what higher self is guiding me to embrace.
And to add to that is this little reminder that keeps popping up through interactions with others – you have dreams for a reason. Some of that includes helping to motivate and inspire you into a momentum of forward steps. Taking action to support your dreams and intentions is a fundamental piece of the puzzle. Depending on how much you really want it and how much you’re willing to give to it, will determine the force behind your motivation and focus.
I’ve seen that direct reflection many times in my life where only what I put all of myself behind, did I actually see the changes or opportunities I desired.
It’s easy to get stuck in the dreaming, imagining and wishing mode, as it’s a way to create a fantasy version of life that temporarily removes us from the actual life right before us. But to turn fluff into tangibility, is crucial to manifesting things. It can seem daunting, but small steps will start to organically bring things together and eventually create outcomes where you won’t even recognize yourself or how you got there because it happened more easily and more enjoyably than you thought. These steps can be simple and seem almost not connected to your vision of an outcome, but make all the difference.
Here are the newly optimized offerings I’ll be available to support you with – some beginning today and others in early 2021 – that can aid the process of those momentous, yet simple steps.
- Sacred Tattoo or Intentional Art Designs: As you know, I used to offer sacred tattoo designs and have stepped away from that for several years now. I still do not intend to go back to this full-time like I used to, but after having recently taken on a handful of very select art commissions that have been extremely fulfilling, having to consistently turn away an influx of requests, and hearing from others how the designs I create have been hugely instrumental in supporting people with transformational phases in their lives, I am being guided to open up 10 spots for design work. This can either be for a sacred tattoo design OR a sacred, intentional art design that you can use as a portal piece for helping to support your work and/or life transformations. They will be done in pencil, as all of my designs are. So, these are not paintings, but actual, detailed designs just like you’ve seen me do in the past as templates for tattoos. I had several people, during the time period I offered sacred tattoo designs, commission the designs without intent of tattooing them, but to act as template portals for specific things in life, or even as book cover and thesis paper designs, as well as life’s work project designs – or soul logos. If this calls to you, or you’ve wanted a sacred tattoo design, this is your opportunity. Again, I am only going to take on 10 projects, so if you would like a design, you’ll find more information and can place your deposit here: Sacred Tattoo or Intentional Art Designs
2. Special Guidance/Coaching Sessions to Navigate These Times at Discounted Price: Between now and end of 2020 you can set up phone sessions with me as an individual one-off session or purchase a package of sessions to meet your needs. Repetitive numbers have been a thing for me for quite some years, but things really went crazy this last week away and since home, with many numbers showing up repetitively, but most notable is 11:11. Although I saw repetitive everything between 1’s to 5’s, the 11:11 portals were very pronounced. So, I’ll be offering these special sessions at only $111 (regular price $226 – savings of $115). These are sessions specifically to help you navigate the energies right now if you’re feeling thrown off center, chaotic, unclear, not sure what’s yours and what belongs to others, are anxious, depressed, stressed out, overwhelmed, feeling out of control or controlled, or simply are unable to hear your voice right now and have been experiencing indecision where once you felt strongly focused. We will discuss the energetic dynamics at work in the macro and micro and help you to regain clarity, focus, and greater peace and balance so you can get back on track in the vein of your own energy frequency. When we learn how to navigate our inner world, we optimize outer world manifestation. I’ll listen to guidance on what tools we might use for our work together and help devise a support system for you to get back to feeling empowered. You can sign up for a session or package of sessions here:
3. The Mentor Muse ~ Guiding Inspiration for Life’s Work Alignment: I’ve mentioned that I would be offering this and it’s looking like Spring of this new year, 2021 is going to be the launch. As I mentioned before, this would be a more intensive and exclusive one-on-one offering, to support a comprehensive approach to manifesting a new path that turns your purpose and passions into your career, while also transforming your life so you experience the fullest expression of your spirit potential right now. Because of the intensive, highly-focused, consistent work this will involve over the course of a longer period of time, it will be very limited to likely taking on just five clients to begin. As, people move through their journey, I’ll then look at opening up to a new group because I want to ensure having the time and being able to give fully to everyone in the highest way. This will include a set number of zoom and/or phone sessions over the course of our work together, weekly check-ins, and individualized processes and customized material to support each person. I’ve thought about this a lot and I don’t believe there are cookie-cutter ways and programs, as each person has their own energetic frequency that works uniquely, so this is not going to be a standardized module program. I’ll work with each person to devise our approach for helping you with your goals. Anyway, this is just a heads-up for Spring, if you were interested in this, and I’ll post more as we get into the New Year so that you’ll be able to have time to feel this out and sign up if it calls to you.
4. Etsy Final Close-Out/End of 2020 THANKYOU Sale: I’ve been feeling that at this juncture in time I am going to be closing our Magick Rabbit Etsy Shop. It may reopen in the future, but I’m needing to shift focuses for now. With that said, we only have 7 items remaining in our shop – two prints, three of our last notebook journal, six sets of greeting cards, and then three special items.
I just added a listing for framed prints of the last four of the Magick Rabbit 8″x10’s. I fell in love with a framed print of The Empress that went to someone and decided to offer these last ones gift or hang-ready. There’s just one of each to choose from.
And then the other two items are custom listings for either Magick Keepsake Chests painted by request or inspirationally guided, or commissioned Magick Portal Wood Plaques. I mentioned that I’ve been working on some art commissions and one of them was a Magick Portal. I am so in love with it and as I was creating it I reignited my pure joy of this kind of work and so it’s no wonder it just poured out in abundant fertile energy! It’s painted in acrylics on basswood and I added a star flower of opals at the top. Here’s a few peaks in different lightings, angles, and close-ups of the piece I’m so excited about:
And this is the sweet bunny model that was my muse of inspiration:
I have just four of these portal wood plaques left as numbered below:
They range in size from small, medium, large, and extra large with varying accompanying prices in our shop.
These would make incredibly unique and memorable Christmas gifts, but if you want one in time for the holiday, then I would need to get your request in right away to ensure I can complete and ship it off timely.
I just happened to have a bunny commission, which we know I love, but I also love painting faeries, gnomes, animals, flowers, plants, mushrooms, butterflies, dragonflies, and anything Nature, Cosmic, faery tale, or magickally themed. I’ve done many animal companion portraits in the past, so any animal can be painted – one that is with you, or an angel watching over you. A way to celebrate, honor, and cherish them forever. They could also be created for someone else you love. I have also loved creating crystal illumination portals that are painted around a particular crystal or crystals as a way to harness and focus the crystal’s energy into your space and life. Other ideas include adorning the perimeter of the plaques with crystals and creating an amplified portal or looking glass into another world or energetic experience. I have the ability to create a mirror and crystal portal on the wood as well – so mixed media is possible for a mosaic-like portal or combined with painting, as I have mini mirror tiles as an option.
Anyway, you get the idea…hehe! I love these kinds of creations!
There’s a 25% off THANKYOU sale going on for the next week through Thanksgiving for any holiday gift-giving ideas on all items except the commissioned custom art pieces here at our shop:
5. 2020/2021 Class Schedule Reminder & Spaces: And last, we’re edging close to our very last online Reiki class of 2020. It’s been an amazing year and incredible group I’ve been honored to support. This last class is sure to be potent, given everything. I can only take one more person in the upcoming Reiki 3 Master Teacher class. It will be held on two days: December 6th for the entire group together and then either December 12th or 13th, depending on which group you’re in to complete your training. If this speaks to you, you can register for it at this link:
At this point only registering in full is an option, as opposed to a deposit, since we’re so close to class time and I need to get material out to you quickly too. So, if you’re wanting to join, please let me know as soon as possible.
And for the 2021 classes, again the February Intuition & Reiki class is full, but you can contact me if you were interested to see about a future class possibility.
The March Crystal Healing & Reiki class has 3 spots available.
And our end of month Intuitive Sound Healing Immersion Event has 1 spot available.
All the dates and details for these classes/events can be found here:
And a last reminder I shared on my Instagram page while away, but deserves repeating.
Don’t underestimate the importance of self nurturing. I know first hand how the desire to help others can be the driving force of our lives. Being of service is a beautiful thing, but you can only give out for so long before it catches up to you and potentially might debilitate you fully to do anything anymore, let alone keep giving.
We’ve been taught and conditioned that self care or listening to our needs is selfish and that martyr roles are the image to aspire to. I learned that image well and it took years to untangle myself out of that pattern.
We each have our own journeys with this, but I’ll just share that until I balanced the relationship I had with myself and to others and truly embraced the essence of abundance being a flow in and out of giving AND receiving, I didn’t live a healthy life and I didn’t really have the best of me to give. The more I understood this balance, the richer the exchanges have been and the more vibrant my energy thrives to keep on giving because I also give to me and open to receiving too.
Recently I’ve been taking mini personal renewal vacations and these have helped make a huge difference in my ability to return back to things like teaching, coaching, taking on art commissions, and doing healing work that I stepped away from because I’m no longer just putting energy out in one direction.
I’ve created a daily well-being practice of balance whether home or away, to keep my well full. Sometimes that literally is served best by fully stepping away, though, which is where I found myself the last week. It’s something we’ll each explore and journey with in our own way, but for me I know it’s what my soul needs to be able to keep an authentic heart presence in all that I do, to be able to withstand the chaos, crazy energy all around, and tugs at me from every direction, and STILL remain centered and at peace, AND to continue to be able to say yes when I receive the nudge to offer new ways of support and inspiration to others.
