Celebrating a 9 Year Cycle


The month of October is a big month for us for celebrations and honoring, including our anniversary, Dave’s birthday, Cosmo’s transition, when we moved into the Magick Bus and began our RV adventure leaving behind everything, when I sold my amazing Hunab Ku Toyota Highlander Hybrid that took me on many an adventure safely, a month of cherished friends’ birthdays and transitions, and our moving back to our home in Lake Tahoe. I’ll be sharing a bit more of some of these as the days go on, but today is a day I want to give some words to, as it marks a 9 year cycle for us together that closes a chapter on our lives and opens a new one.

Today is our anniversary of coming together and although we experienced years of mixed challenge that likely could have taken us a different direction many times, we find ourselves continuing together, stronger than ever.

I know that many fantasize and hope or intend for their version of ideal in a relationship….the movie screen romance….that state of constant bliss…..or some idea of “spiritual” perfection….Why? Because I’ve heard it from many, I see it in things people share online, and because I have been there.

But I’ve found that it is the relationships that take you through every nook and cranny of your heart and soul, to the depths of challenge and to the shadows of personal reflection at the core, which truly create richness, fulfillment, and solidity, individually and as a partnership.

You don’t have to live this “spiritual ideal” of a life to have and share a beautiful relationship. In fact, I know of many and see many “spiritual” people who move through more partners than the world of celebrities do. Nothing wrong with that, of course, as we do change and so change can constitute moving on when that becomes necessary to one’s personal growth and well being. And there is no one way relationships need to look or be and yet, it is curious to me in the stories I’ve heard and in my own years of experience with this, how spiritual ego can sometimes overlook the beauty and gift the challenges are reflecting that may in fact bring us closer to our relationship to ourselves and All That Is, if we are willing to go as far and as deep as the relationship is asking of us. Sometimes we stop before we get there, much as we give up on dreams or intentions we’ve been working on right when we needed to just go that extra mile and it would happen.

That’s not to say that every relationship is meant to last, nor should it, but each one is opportunity for utmost vulnerability and transparency so that we may journey to ever-greater personal integrity and grace of being.

Some connections can be past life or beyond intensified to help us to move through things, clear and heal soul patterns, or are there to simply recognize for what they are, but aren’t necessarily ones for the “now” to move forward with.

Some souls simply can’t meet us at that level of commitment and responsibility that it will take to get there, but there are many that can, will, and do rise to the occasion, if we are doing our work just as much as we desire them to do theirs. The key being, doing OUR work and not trying to change the other person or force them to do what we ourselves cannot. Walking the walk will produce the most authentic experiences of either them meeting us at that bridge, or making the choice that it’s just too much and not for them.

And this is where I’ve found myself in gratitude of this relationship I share with Dave. We’ve been at many crossroads during our times together and yet each time it asked of  me/us to go deeper and further, we eventually did. It didn’t happen easily or overnight, especially in the beginning, as we both came together at times of huge personal transformation we met each other with, which yanked us hard in many directions and had us exploring everything to its depths individually and together.

What I found, however, is that when I was willing to look most vulnerably and responsibly at myself and walk the walk in every way, that was the ultimate game-changer.

I share this, as I feel it is important for us to understand that everything in life now asks of these things from us consistently across the board. If we want a particular “anything” then we must be willing to go to the depths of our core most honestly and with the greatest level of conscious responsibility we can muster up in every new moment.

I want to honor and celebrate what has been an incredible 9 year journey with Dave and it feels like we are at another precipice of possibility taking place right now.

We’ve been through The Tower, The Devil, The Hanged Man, The Death, The Fool cards….you name it and I feel as if The Star and The World cards are coming into being now. The last couple of years really shifted things into several octaves higher for sure when together we took leaps into the unknown of individual and shared journeys of the heart.

Next Friday, the 27th will celebrate Dave’s first breath on Earth, this go around, but it is every day and every timeless moment he’s cherished and celebrated.

Equally so is today, the 22nd, cherished and celebrated as the moment we decided in spirit upon changing our lives forever and ending the repetitive patterns we both had experienced. The moment somewhere in our heart and soul did a part of us know this would be our chance to go beyond….our chance to change everything….and our knowingness on a spirit level that if it wasn’t now and with this opportunity within each of us, it might never be. It wouldn’t be easy and it wouldn’t be bliss, but it would be possible depending upon how much our souls had had enough.

We’ve been through it all, the worst and the best, the challenge and the flow, yet we never gave up, embraced the mirror we reflected to each other to transmute within ourselves, didn’t listen to what others thought, and instead paved our own way through life and with each other – our efforts showering us with gifts in abundance.

But no other adventure has been grander than these last two years, as we jumped together into the great outdoors to discover the depths of ourselves and our bond by turning things inside out and upside down, revealing the root of love’s true power to create miracles.

Dave literally saved my life last year and believed and nurtured me to follow my dreams and step into the most empowered embodiment of my essence I have ever been.

I’ve loved watching him blossom and reveal more of who he really is….the deep thinker, the adventurer, the silly playful child, the lover of nature and protector of animals, the poet, the creative, the sensitive, the passionate, the intellectual, the generous giver, the tender, the strong, the one who has been able to help me grow the most by challenging me with everything I need and helping me to finally find that peaceful balance.

That’s what a true, loving partner is.

It is pretty amazing, but no wonder that we are celebrating this ending and beginning of a cycle with our new dream home coming into manifestation, which we closed on two days before October – bringing another thing into celebration for this month, as we also just began our remodeling in the last couple of weeks.

It’s an incredible journey for sure, and I know the best times are now and yet to come, as we have both individually and together, worked through the biggest hurdles of this lifetime and are now ready to embark on a completely new reset of creations and experiences that only hinge on the now and focus on a whole new and unknown future.

Here’s to making more exciting memories on the next adventure we’re embarking on.

I’m grateful for this day when we both decided to show up, stand up, rise to the occasion, and say no more, I’m ready to go the length and do what ever it takes, I’m ready to be all that I can be, I’m ready to create a new reality, and I’m in, all the way.

New Moon Winds of Change


Yesterday’s Libra New Moon brought winds of change here to stir things up, clear, refresh, and provide new perspectives supporting the potential of creating greater balance in our lives especially in terms of the relationships we have with everything – each other, things, Nature, ourselves, the sacred feminine and masculine within all, and the world and Cosmos at large. There’s a continual offering presented where we can learn to cultivate bridges of deeper compassion and connection that will lead to new doorways of experience.

We experienced high high winds throughout all of yesterday and last night, which I loved hearing as I fell asleep, cozy in our bed with gratitude for the warmth to cocoon in. I had a lot of energy this morning for some reason, which woke me at 4 am and had me awake for the next two hours in bed listening to the snow blowing outside, until I fell back asleep for a brief snooze again.

I’d taken a peek outside and knew the morning would be beautiful since I could see the snow all around in the dark amidst the dense sky swirling with energy. And when I did wake again, the sun opened everything to beautiful clarity revealing a lovely dusting of snow creating this enchantment.

IMG_20171020_084557727.jpg

Snow just for a day in between Autumn’s splendor.

IMG_20171020_081437635IMG_20171020_074437187

Yesterday was another busy day here, but I also had a hair appointment in the midst of everything, which was perfectly aligned without my doing, on the New Moon. I’d made the appointment a couple of months ago and it just happened to fall on this day, which seemed perfect for a refresh.

On the way there I saw a beautiful coyote out in the golden fields within the farmlands of Minden. The coyote was plush and nearly golden herself – almost undetectable except that I happen to have a hawk eye of my own. She was very focused and seemed to be stalking something. Not long after, a very large hawk appeared upon a fence railing, eyeing me, as I eyed the coyote. Coyote and hawk medicine seemed perfect for the energies around.

Anyway, I’d felt called for a bit of change and so I cut another nearly 4 inches off to recharge and we added more of my natural dark brown back into my hair for extra dramatic contrast with the silver that felt good for the current energies and Autumn/Winter seasons, not to mention got me back to my “roots”. 😉

In the Summer my hair had gotten so light all around, as you might remember, and that supported the shifting I was needing. And now I anchor back into a contrast of dark and light, embodying the merging of both, and reminding me that all is sacred.

I guess my hair was much longer than I thought, as even after the 4 inches off, it is still so long. Somehow the New Moon feels to have plumped and lengthened my hair, as it is healthier than ever.

Astrid and I are even more mirrors of each other physically now, which I love. I can’t get over it sometimes how perfect she is for me, and vice versa. We feel one and the same on many levels.

I also love how every step of the journey always feels so right these days because of following the guidance and flow of energy in every moment.

And so the winds of change blow through in many ways, including creating a bit of chaos in the midst of it all with everything in transition for us here. Our new home is in complete disarray, as it’s been virtually all internally demolished for the contractors to implement our remodeling visions. And even our current tree house is going through a bit of a face-lift preparing it, at the same time, for its new tenants. While we live with inflatable furniture, folding chairs and tables, and boxes temporarily these last months.

Add on my crazy editing mode I am doing as I can amidst it all (feeling to complete by end of year) and other aspects of our lives I’m co-managing that are all creating full time jobs for me right now (good thing I’ve switched gears), it’s definitely a process unfolding and there’s nothing to do but take it patiently, a day at a time.

I could easily get swept up into panic, anxiety, stress, worry, discouragement, and even dismay if I let current conditions and all of the collective things going on affect me, but instead my experiences paint me a different story. They teach me that all things have a season and reason, and that keeping focus, balance, and being grateful and not neglecting nurturing of needs along the way, will see me through…always.

It can be challenging when nothing seems to have a result currently, but that’s when we need to pull from our inner core like the tree and her roots that always keep her stabilized despite how the elements and seasons shift her outer appearance.

I could easily start judging it all, second-guessing, or even wondering what the heck I’m doing with my book that perhaps only I will ever love. But that, in and of itself, is enough for me – to be true to what my heart wants to share and express. That wouldn’t have been in the past when I was affected by other’s opinions of me or had a lesser version of self love, or what love in general really means.

I am grateful for my vision that can see beyond the current swirling of energy, as that is what anchors my peaceful embrace of it all and reminds me at any moment how it’s all necessary and key to keep riding those air currents flowing through.

Just as everything was dark in the wee hours today and I couldn’t see anything but swirling snow and wind, while a fog set in and covered the lake and everything around us, the light of day did come and the clouds parted, to reveal the splendor it was stirring into creation.

Interestingly, the same happened with my hair yesterday, as somehow an odd thing happened where for a moment my hair was deep lilac. I WAS wearing a big amethyst ring and a purple and pink top with spirals on it, so it was curiously peculiar my hair was reflecting this energy. My hair stylist was not worried though, as she said my hair follicles were really open and absorbing, so they just absorbed more pigments than normal and she knew that shampooing with a clarifying shampoo would immediately balance it back. And that’s exactly what happened without any cause for alarm, creating exactly what I’d envisioned and naturally balanced me out.

The New Moon really opened things wide, but we have to be willing to go through some moments of oddness, confusion, disarray, unknowns, periods of chaos and potential upheaval, before things settle into clarity and balance again.

This morning I was excited to see our new home and land with its first dusting of snow and this is what greeted us by the light of day.

I know so many are going through relationship shifts, job changes, moving to new homes, health crises, experiencing departures of loved ones, going through huge loss, and are at the precipice of making or needing to make huge leaps….Wishing everyone grace and ease with all the changes in life’s seasons you are experiencing and the ability to find peace within the chaos, and vision within the temporary fog.

Art for Rabbits ~ 10% Sale on Holiday & Any Day Gift Ideas with 50% -100% Proceeds Donated


So I know it’s a little early for some to think about holiday gift-giving, but then the stores have already been showcasing both Thanksgiving and Christmas stuff for a while now, so this may already be on some of your radars. Regardless, last night I was hit with the inspiration to offer my art, as a way to potentially help raise some money for Save A Bunny because of their tireless efforts and the influx of rabbits in their care due to the wildfires. This is a rabbit rescue in Mill Valley, CA where I adopted both Joy and Astrid from.

I try to give when I can to both Save A Bunny and Bunny World Foundation (where I adopted Cosmo from) when I can because these two organizations work tirelessly for the bunnies and conscious awareness all around.

When I heard about the potential threat Save A Bunny was under, two days ago, due to three fires that were burning on the hillside along highway 101 in Sausalito, this likely added fuel to that flame of inner guidance to see if I could lend a hand. I’m happy to report that Save A Bunny and all the bunnies there are safe and the fires were put out, but support would still be a wonderful thing to gift them as surprise with. My holiday gift to them.

Even if you’re not in holiday shopping mode, but want to help and/or have been drawn to one of my paintings, perhaps this is the time they may call to you. And if you ARE thinking of holiday gifts or self-nurturing celebrations for your sanctuary space, then below you’ll find ideas for all budgets.

Since the artwork is on a per-order basis, it also makes sense to share this now, as it takes time to print, prepare, and ship each large item (sometimes up to 3-4 weeks). Please make sure to read about shipping below in bold, pink highlighted print. Shipping is additional.

But there are also fun smaller items that ship out quickly. Keep reading for my Cafe Press Shop link below for those.

A little about this series:

Sacred vessel, animal spirit paintings that hold antidotes for a new “ARKitectural” plan and code of life for creating the New Earth experience.

An “ark” by definition and historical understanding was a vessel built by Noah to house and keep safe his family and pairs of every animal of the Earth. It is also known as a sacred chest where the ancient Hebrews kept the two tablets containing the Ten Commandments. In either form, it is seen as a sacred and protective structure that contained the promise of a new life where a new architectural system of life codes would be embraced and instituted to start anew.

These power animals act as guides or angels, imbuing their individual energy, power and wisdom to support, heal and protect you. Shamanic practice honors with awareness the wisdom and power in all things on Earth, understanding and believing that everything is alive and has something to teach. Allow the animals to speak in the way meant for you.

I’ll continue to reshare this post through the end of the year, as people always share that they miss things since they aren’t online regularly, may not be subscribed, or only catch my blogs when I share them, but for now, here’s the scoop!

I would like to offer my Universal ARKitecture animal series from now through end of year 12/31/17 at 10% discount with 50% – 100% of all sales going to Save A Bunny.

What that looks like:

I have a 9 piece art series of animal spirit paintings called Universal ARKitecture that I’m offering for this holiday season to give back to the rabbits who have changed my life. Everyone has their calling and while I focus on the bigger picture with personal things and work I share, a big part of my path involves the bunnies and their bigger picture gift to the world.

10% Off All Original and Giclees of the 9 Piece Series:

Originals and Original sized Giclees will be available for this sale. Since my website has not been updated in ages, and due to needing to add the 10% discount to prices, it will be easier for me to create separate ordering via this post, which you can find below. 3 of the 9 Originals are not available, but Original-sized Giclees (which are fine art prints stretched on canvas to look like originals) are available for all of them including those three.

50% Proceeds Donated to Save A Bunny

From all sales of original and giclee artwork, I will directly donate 50% of profits to Save A Bunny to help support the rabbits in their care. The other 50% will go toward funding another project to help rabbits that I’m putting into motion – to be announced. So basically all proceeds are for the rabbits.

Something to Fit Everyone’s Budget – 100% Proceeds Donated to Save A Bunny

If you love the art and want to help, but have your own needs to meet too, then perhaps you might feel called to one of the gift items in my Cafe Press Shop, which showcases these paintings on unique and fun items – my favorite are the beautiful keepsake boxes! 100% of proceeds will be donated to Save A Bunny. You can find those at the link below and examples of the keepsake boxes too:

Shipping and handling is included for unstretched canvas giclees only.

For stretched canvas giclees or original paintings, a separate invoice will be sent once the shipping charges are assessed for the shipping address you provide.

Creating Space for the New & Reflections of the Process


As I shared, in the coming couple of months we’ll be moving into our new home and this will herald another leap of change in our lives. Of course these involve energetic shifts and openings, but I can literally see how these shifts have evolved and why, even just in terms of the homes we’ve been, and will be, living in. The journey is constantly humbling, as I review the course of my life and experiences that haven’t always been so clear to me, let alone clean and easy. Things are drastically different these days, but that has only been because of a continued commitment to delve deeper and not become complacent. To keep rising out of the ashes and do it another way. These days are times of unveiling and constant stripping away of comfort zones and veils that even the more conscious can easily pull, or have pulled, over themselves.

Everyone is going through a rewiring process and in some cases that leads to a richer and fuller embodiment than ever known, when embraced and implemented. And in some cases this can lead to a “shift or leave” syndrome we keep experiencing with so many departing this Earthly plane of existence.

There’s no right or wrong in this, but simply a choice. We are constantly presented choices, as this is a free will zone.

I definitely don’t do things in any perfected way and definitely have gone through some crazy stuff because I, too, understand the confusing, painful, challenging, and sometimes tormenting energy we have here to deal with.

It is through finding solace within my own voice that I experience peace and find the clarity that guides my way.

And recently that led us back to Lake Tahoe and we found ourselves in this “tree house” or “castle in the sky” at the highest point here being 7500 elevation that overlooks the lake.

It’s as if we physically manifested a realm to literally help us rise above things, to elevate us in this state of being in things, but not of them, so that we could suspend all the “noise” around us and receive clarity on our path….and peace within chaos.

From this place so much has streamed in, inspiration has channeled through, and creative manifestation has been able to take form in an all-encompassing and multi-dimensional way.

After being on the road and deeply immersed in Nature for over a year in the Magick bus, this state of suspension atop the air streams that blew in and all around us, supported an opening to take place that helped sift through all of our thoughts and ideas, so that we could hone in on the most effective and all-fulfilling path for us. It was no surprise to me that this has been during such huge times of shifting and upheaval the collective and Earth is experiencing.

It’s as if the winds that blew through here carried with them the whispers of collective thoughts and beliefs and I was experiencing it all swirl around me, but could then understand from this perspective how they were my choice to either grab from the air and attach to, or continue to allow them to stream by with gratitude for their reflection.

It is here that I completed the story that my book shares.

It is during our remodeling and transition phase that I edit it now.

And it will be in the new home where completion anchors and expands into the next phase.

We will be going from this elevated point that enabled expansive vision of sky and water (and review of multi-perspectives and potentials) to support our process….to a 900 feet drop in elevation to 6600 feet that will be rooting us into the abundant and mysterious forest for the next phase.

We’ll still be remaining at very high altitude, as this is where I thrive and feel most me, but with a new support system that will integrate the energy more (Earth and Cosmos as One), as well as deepen the creative inspiration into manifestation.

We’re dropping down a bit to merge with Nature more, rather than hover in the air above it. This also merges us back into things at large more too. And, it will bring us within closer proximity to getting to the lake for our water connecting – could even bike or walk there if we really wanted, or drive within minutes. Feels like the perfect happy medium for us at this stage and the seclusion and magick of the forest feels to nurture with the sense of sanctuary now desired.

I’ve also seen this shift take place with the plant friends I’ve surrounded myself with, which has grown since living here. I went from having only one plant on the Magick Bus (after I gifted away my mini garden I had at first to my friend in Montana), to now having seven little lush worlds with tons of plant beings in these magickal Faery gardens I’ve created to infuse my life with expansive energy.

The same has happened with crystal friends too. I had so very little crystals, after nearly all moving on in the time before leaping onto the Magick Bus, which continued when arriving here, but then had a small influx of new crystal beings coming in to support the creation of this new space and infuse our environment with the perfect energy needed. Some I felt were working in the now and others working in the new space that only existed in the ethers and would become anchors there once that timeline came into being.

I still have very very few crystals, especially considering I once lived in a crystal cave when I first moved out on my own to my space at the north end of Tahoe. But the few with me now are very deliberate and are shared between Astrid and myself, as well as support our family as a whole. And since we’re preparing to move, most are boxed right now except for a few in the space to support the change.

You’ve already seen Astrid’s Dendritic Opal and Rose Quartz Towers, so I’m only sharing the ones I haven’t yet. I haven’t posted much on crystals lately, but know that so many of you love them and enjoy shares on them. I have mentioned how many crystals I never had a huge draw to have come into my experience now, and so you’ll see some of those here.

The ones I’ve kept out for now are what you see in the photos here, which include my male and female Labradorite unicorns, a Lapis Lazuli fish, a Goldstone rabbit, an incredible Ocean Jasper sphere with portals and amazing naturally infused sacred circles in perfect geometric synergy throughout (hard to capture, but you can kind of see one of these in the photo), and this incredible Fluorite.

The Fluorite is like nothing I’ve seen and truly embodies the essence of my focus – merging Earth and Cosmos – as the bottom half is this exquisite layered journey through Earth’s womb in the brown and the top half is this ethereal experience of violet and white. Within each there are remnants of both interlaced, creating balance. And then we find sparks of rainbow and one larger one at top.

I just love it and knew immediately it was to come home and mirrored the journey I have been, and will continue, on.

Harmony within and without. 11:11 when I write that.

I love reflecting on and deepening into the processes and share them as a way for others to also see how we can utilize them to understand the why’s and to have gratitude for each piece and step of the way.

Even the not so fun, uncomfortable, challenging, and painful parts still apply to “life as an experience”and process we can teach ourselves to become more present to and receive the reflections of.

If I’d continued to circle round and round with my attachment to those times in my life, I would have remained stuck and could not have created something different, or perhaps would no longer be here even. Through trials and tribulations, trial and error, and experimentation, we reach a little further each time.

I don’t think it’s easy, but I do know anything is possible.

I now have new hurdles to jump if I want to continue to create more and what I feel called to bring forth, but with the experiences behind me, I have built strength and resilience to face them with a lighter approach.

Literally “dropping into” this new space, I invite a merging to take place that creates the space for more.

Bitter & Sweet ~ Save A Bunny’s Incredible Generosity Amidst Tragedy & Astrid’s Reminder & Voice Heard


This was Astrid a few days ago in meditative mode tuning in to all around her and sending out energy to those in need. As you can see, a blueish green ray of light is beaming across her core and through her all-seeing eye. She is connected to the Source of All That Is through the light within her, as she especially tunes in to the bunnies at Save A Bunny where she lived before coming to me and where a lot of displaced rabbits whose families had to evacuate from the fires and a big group of abandoned rabbits left in boxes in a park, have all come to be cared for there as well. She’s been extra snuggly last week, really absorbing all the love I give her. She knows the importance of giving AND receiving. This makes me happy, as my bunnies have always been huge givers and this can result in blow outs because of the enormous energy they exude from their fragile bodies, which then takes rebalancing. Astrid is a strong one, but it makes me happy to know she is open to the flow of energy to help keep her healthy and able to continue giving and working the magick as she does.

I feel that so many healers and empaths can benefit from this reminder, but everyone in general will feel that boost when opening the stream of energy to flow naturally.

That leads me to share some bitter and sweet news connected with Astrid’s focuses and the rabbit rescue from which I adopted her from, as both sides of the coin are always present in the bigger picture of things.

The following shares come to you from Save A Bunny and their Facebook updates, as well as a personal message from Marcy – the head of this incredible organization. The first involving good news for rabbits, cats, and dogs in California.

Here are some moving images and updates copied from their page. I feel called to share these, prompted by Astrid, as a way to bring her voice and the voice of these voiceless ones into form.

Celebrations for the three most euthanized animals in the U.S., reverence to all and Mother Nature, and so much love sent to everyone and all of the beings affected by these wildfires and events in the world.

Thank you hugely Marcy and Save A Bunny for all that you do. You move me beyond words with your love and dedication. Sending so much love to you all there, as just like Astrid, receiving will help aid your continued efforts.

The following comes from Save A Bunny:

“California to require pet stores carry only shelter and rescue animals for adoption.

Yesterday Governor Jerry Brown signed legislation (AB-485) mandating only animals from animal rescues and shelters may be offered at pet stores. The legislation, aimed at reducing the number of animals in shelters, will take effect in 2019. Stores can be fined $500 for each animal not from a legitimate rescue organization. California is the first state to pass this type of legislation.

Thank you, Gov Brown, and let’s keep working to find every bun a loving forever home!”

We’re deeply grateful to Heather W and Shereen R for driving 5+ hours to transport the bunnies from Salt Point State Park. They truly saved the bunnies lives.

3 baby boys resting and getting plenty to eat and drink. Poor things seemed so tired and traumatized on arrival, and not behaving like babies at all. But today some started coming out of the shell shock and we’ve glimpsed a tiny binky or two.

 

“Wildfire Bunnies and their rescue

Late last night we took in 15 rabbits on an emergency basis. We’re calling them the Wildfire Bunnies and they came from Salt Point State Park about 2.5 hours north of SaveABunny in a somewhat remote area of California.

A couple days ago rangers found the bunnies abandoned in the park. They’d been left in cardboard boxes with some rice and peanuts (both bad for bunnies) and no water. Doing the best they could with limited resources the rangers took them to a shed then started calling around to animal shelters, and SaveABunny was the only rescue who agreed to take them sight unseen and not knowing anything about their condition.

In the meantime wildfires began raging out of control overnight and Salt Point was declared a safe place for fire evacuees, so the bunnies had to leave the park within hours but due to the driving distance and remoteness of location it was really hard to find anyone. Thankfully 2 wonderful angels, Heather and Shereen, agreed to make the long trip after work and bring the bunnies back late at night.

There are a couple of adults and the rest are babies, all in various states of malnutrition and neglect, and it took most of the day to do a detailed assessment. Some will need to see a vet ASAP such as one baby with obvious head trauma, one with an injured (maybe broken) leg and one who’ll likely need surgery because of injury to his private parts.

At the same time we’re also housing bunnies whose families had to evacuate as well as fielding many calls for help from county animal shelters and rescues.

We’re committed to assisting as many people and bunnies as possible, with devoted volunteers working all day and late into the night.

Here are ways to help:

— Transport: if you’re willing to pick up bunnies from the shelter in Mill Valley, CA and drive them foster homes in other parts of the area, please send a PRIVATE message to SaveABunny FB with your phone number and specifying what geographic region(s) you’re willing to cover.

— Foster: If you’re willing to host a bunny for a couple weeks and you live in the Bay Area region, please fill out the application http://www.saveabunny.org/foster. We’re really trying to keep lines of communication clear so filling out the application will help us tremendously so we have all your basic information in a way that can be shared amongst volunteers.

— Donate: If you’d like provide the Wildfire Bunnies with a little toy or some supplies our Wish List is http://tinyurl.com/SaveABunnyWishList.

Thank you so much for the encouragement and support, the bunny community is a very wonderful group to be a part of!”

 

And a note from Marcy:

 

“Dear Friends, Simply put ….thank you for your trust and support during these tragic wildfires in Northern California.

SaveABunny is “guerrilla rescue.” We’re scrappy, entrenched behind the scenes and our mission is always to take the unwanted, traumatized or abandoned rabbits left behind. Sight and condition of the rabbits is frequently unknown. That is how we are helping during the tragic wildfires in California.

Our doors are open to bunnies who have fallen between the cracks. Left behind, found as strays or now homeless. We’re also here for the displaced weary and frightened people who need peace of mind that their bunnies are safely being cared for–FREE OF CHARGE.

This is not glamorous work, nor is it a fundraiser. It is an act of love for humans and their animals. That’s what we stand for and who we are as a group.” ~Marcy

Autumn Inspiration & Full Circle Reflections


IMG_20171014_144425.jpg

I remember how last year at this exact time, when we first arrived back in Tahoe with the Magick Bus, we spent a lot of days at Fallen Leaf Lake taking in the Fall colors. Synchronously, this last Friday the 13th marked two years since we’d officially moved into the Magick Bus in 2015 on a New Moon. A beautiful full circle celebration and truly the life choice that changed everything for us, and especially for me. Today marks five weeks to the day already in my foot’s healing process and it’s doing very well with all the nurturing I’ve given it. Yesterday I was itching to get out more and so we did about a 3+ mile, relatively easy hike with my boot along Fallen Leaf Lake because the Autumn colors were calling me again. It felt so good to be out in nature with all the smells and sights.

IMG_20171014_144348.jpgIMG_20171014_144436.jpg

SO much has changed since we put into motion our Magick Bus plan and made that leap with complete trust, detachment of results, and non-judgment of the process. It feels like lifetimes ago and also holds lifetimes within those two years of major movement of energy and manifestation that we experienced – even more than what I express here.

IMG_20171014_144444.jpgIMG_20171014_145535.jpg

As I shared on Facebook, everything these days seems to point to an elevated need for patience, presence, process, and peace – the four p’s!

IMG_20171014_145743.jpgIMG_20171014_145858.jpgIMG_20171014_145958

And when a dear friend asked about what I referred to in terms of the “process” part, I shared:

Processing what comes up and always being aware that everything involves a process… Just like life is a journey, but there are steps and stages to go through. Each of those steps being integral and important. We often get caught up in the result and want to know the outcome but you won’t until you go through the process, as each step can shift things and open to something completely different, but potentially better. That goes back to patience and presence. Patience with what you’re wanting to see in the world or create in your life. Presence with what’s before you now revealing insights and gifts to get you to the next step. And peace within along the way to anchor yourself and keep balanced.

IMG_20171014_150640.jpgIMG_20171014_152605.jpg

Nature reflects and guides us on this life cycle so beautifully.

IMG_20171014_152814.jpgIMG_20171014_152546.jpgIMG_20171014_152831.jpg

Not only has our journey the last two years been about all of this incredibly, including finding ourselves back here after a nine year cycle of where we began, but currently with our home remodeling and my book editing, I/we’re fully needing to live this day in and day out – not just simply as a thought we read for the moment and agree with, but as an actualized experience we embody.

IMG_20171014_153420.jpgIMG_20171014_153107.jpg

I hope you enjoy these photo captures from yesterday’s hike and that you can receive the wisdom Nature has to share.

I LOVE the light encircling everything, bringing that full circle experience into visible acknowledgment.

Dreams Come to Life ~ New Landscapes to Imagine From


The landscape of my mind has been the canvas for painting dreams into being. I’ve long focused on remaining in that creative field of my imagination and heart, as I have come to understand this being the seeding to dreams coming true. When I release ideas of time pressures, conditions, outer world scare tactics, and how I think this has to look, I open to the expansive possibilities of what is in the highest good to manifest.

 

And now I find a dream coming to life, which creates new landscapes to imagine and create from. This new space feels perfect and fertile for the magnitude of creations I am continuing to seed in the Cosmic landscape of my mind and heart. So grateful for this land we get to call home.

Pure Imagination Creates New Realities


This song (one of my favs from one of my fav movies) has been in my heart strongly the last couple of days and flowing through my voice. I don’t dictate what inspirations come through, they simply do. Passing along the message, as it feels needed out there collectively. This goes along with yesterday’s reblog on continuing to dream and imagine in order to create new realities.

Willy Wonka:
[Spoken]
Hold your breath
Make a wish
Count to three
[Sung]
Come with me
And you’ll be
In a world of
Pure imagination
Take a look
And you’ll see
Into your imagination
We’ll begin
With a spin
Traveling in
The world of my creation
What we’ll see
Will defy
Explanation
If you want to view paradise
Simply look around and view it
Anything you want to, do it
Wanta change the world?
There’s nothing
To it
There is no
Life I know
To compare with
Pure imagination
Living there
You’ll be free
If you truly wish to be
If you want to view paradise
Simply look around and view it
Anything you want to, do it
Wanta change the world?
There’s nothing
To it
There is no
Life I know
To compare with
Pure imagination
Living there
You’ll be free
If you truly
Wish to be

The Wings of Your Dreams


Three years ago, today, I shared this brief message of motivation about continuing to feed, fuel, and expand those dreams of yours. And that seems extra relevant right now, but always key, as your dreams are the wings of inspiration that will carry you through life and seed the hopes of tomorrow into manifestation. Don’t stop dreaming and imagining in ever-expansive ways. This is how you create a new reality…then trusting, being, and doing will take you the rest of the way.

Cut not the wings of your dreams, for they are the heartbeat and the freedom of your soul. ~ Flavia

Nature Heals & We Heal Nature


22291283_10213858938894822_4992465238824331659_o.jpg

I’ve spent most of my life as a Southern California girl where weather is mild year round unless you drive to the mountains or way north or into neighboring states. That’s one reason why people love California so much and while that’s been what I always knew, I’ve longed for the changes that mirror my own. It’s such a gift to have that once again and for the long haul. For me, this experience of full immersion into the changes really enhances my experience of life, creates depth of presence, and enriches it all. I truly love the fullness of embodiment within and without.

I had opportunity to experience other climates and regions while living in the Seattle, WA area for a year, Sedona, AZ for a couple of years, Lake Tahoe and Reno, NV for 5 years, and traveling all over the world, which has really driven home to me the kind of things, weather, and energy that are nurturing to my soul and what nourishes thriving for my heart to create and be fueled with inspiration always.

I’m grateful to have found that.

Autumn is truly spectacular here and I so appreciate and love living in a place where I get to enjoy the four seasons and literally experience the reflections and wisdom of nature’s cycles. Everything we want to know can be found in nature.

The photos in this post share some Fall visions I’ve enjoyed with discoveries on the land of our new home to include trees and bushes bearing berries, shifting colors, small clusters of Fall-blooming pansies, and a favorite Manzanita tree that is truly a giant Bonsai Faery realm.

I’ve also included a photo of the five daffodil bulbs I planted (a gift from Faery sis Laura) and the dear Earthworm that gifted me his blessings on choice of planting location.

Today our new giant elders, guardians, wisdom keepers, and storyteller Austrian Pines are in process of being planted too, which is exciting! Three so far in and five to go.

I love all the magick Nature is revealing to me and the sweet relationship I have with her to gift her the same as she does me. I made a promise to the land, Faeries, and all Elementals of our new abode, and we’re keeping them. Little by little, we will merge our spirits as One through the creation of this sanctuary haven.

I’ve also included images from yesterday’s walk – I was able to do 2+ miles on flat trails along Zephyr Cove and Taylor Creek (one with and one without crutches), getting a chance to immerse in Nature’s beauty and light, as well as to see the gorgeous and symbolically potent salmon once again, while taking in the smells, crisp chilled air (in the 40’s), and gorgeous dance of colors.

At four weeks already, I’m on my way to hiking again soon! Yay!! Half way there!

Nature heals and we, too, can help heal Her.
