Living here is such an incredible reminder of what is possible in terms of creating and manifesting reflections of my heart’s desires and having the peace I feel within, mirrored to me. When I first saw this house, despite knowing we would be doing a complete internal demolish and remodel, I knew the footprint, its energy, the layout, and the essence of the land here was meant for us. I always felt the end result and not the process and the Faeries kept reiterating this to me with signs, messages, and to continue to trust even when challenges arose. They told me to be patient and they would handle the details, which they did and have.
Although we’re still in remodeling mode, the major work is starting to wind down and we’re beginning to see the fruits of our labor come together.
This includes the magick of the forest land we sit on and our expansive forest backyard.
Yesterday our contractors left early so we had opportunity just before sunset to do a short hike out back. All of the photos you see here are of this trail we took from our home.
We have a whole grid work of hiking/biking trails right off our deck and yesterday we discovered a new one, which was this big loop that takes us through the forest, across a creek, along it, then through meadows, and back into the woods and along a second creek that then returns us home.
It was gorgeous and the light of the day had an aura of golden glow that just lit everything up with enchantment.
Soon this whole area will be covered in thick blankets of snow and we’ll be able to wander to our heart’s content on snow shoes. Dave intends to try out cross country skiing too, which will be perfect here as well.
To have this as our backyard is just incredible. I would say “pinch me,” but I know I’m not dreaming.
It’s taken me nearly 45 years of my life to get here, but it’s been worth the work and wait. Couldn’t have happened at a better time and goes again to show you that all things have their divine alignments, as now is when this all means the most to me and supports the next phase of life I’m entering.
Doing something anyway that you feel is impossible, were told is impossible, or simply feel challenged by based on where you are right now in shifting your beliefs about the “possible”, will help you access the door to where the possible dwells and embody the frequency that aligns you with that reality.
If you devote your heart to realizing your limitless potential, making the “idea” of impossible, possible, and nurturing your imagination to stretch further, you will find your feet supported across the bridge of dreams where steps don’t appear to be right now.
Keep stretching your heart and mind to expand a little more each day.
The possible would love to embrace you with open arms.
Don’t let the impossible hold you back.

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.
Hold your breath
Make a wish
Count to three
Come with me
And you’ll be
In a world of
Take a look
And you’ll see
Into your imagination
With a spin
The world of my creation
What we’ll see
If you want to view paradise
Simply look around and view it
Anything you want to, do it
Wanta change the world?
There is no
Life I know
To compare with
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 is no
Life I know
To compare with
You’ll be free
If you truly
Wish to be
I’m definitely missing Australia, but also really enjoying pre-summer weather and beauty blooming all around here at Lake Tahoe. Life goes on and and with so much culminating around Summer Solstice, I’m clearly getting the sense of rapid growth and prolific possibilities manifesting. The energy available feels really rich with potential for anyone ready to run with it….ready to keep hope alive.
In the short few days we’ve been back we’ve been putting a lot into motion and quickly picked up right where we left off, quickly settling and organizing back while also hiking, enjoying a sunset cruise on the lake with friends, sightings right off our deck of Bald Eagle and hot air balloon gliding over Tahoe (awesome symbolism and messages), me finding both a large goose and hawk feather, talking about future travels, tons of garden delights and blooms from visiting my parent’s house, lunch and hair refreshening for us both in Reno…full, reflective, and balancing experiences for sure.
I’m getting back to my writing today (which will conclude my first draft here shortly) and we’re preparing for both my friend Lynne to come through again for a couple of days on the 10th, as well as our heading out on the 13th for a week to Austin for business mixed with some fun.
The day after we return, on the Solstice, I’ll both be heading to Northern California to pick up my new bunny love, as well as starting a big 10-day cleanse.
So yeah, a lot going on and I’ve heard from others experiencing in a similar vein and a lot of amazing things, greater fulfillment, and new beginnings starting to take root for them, which makes me happy to hear.
People have been pulling out of old frameworks and patterns, embracing more of their truth, and realizing how self-sacrifice has not served them and others in their lives they thought they were helping.
Every “setback” can be viewed as the potential for something more to be brought to light, greater alignment in process, or the opportunity to turn something from one thing to another and shift your vibration to match it.
While there may be a lot of drama and disturbing experiences floating about as well, I think that mentioning the lovely things is important to demonstrate what is available to experience and that we can choose where and how we place our attention and focus, not to mention how we integrate those contrasting things to our benefit or detriment.
Much is shifting in the world on a daily and moment-to-moment basis and if you choose to only focus and dwell on one perspective, not only will you be sucked into a cesspool of quicksand that keeps dragging you down, but you’ll also miss out on the rest, which includes how those things you may not like so much are, and have, actually been fueling all of the positive changes.
Let’s remind each other of our wholeness, by embodying it more and more and embracing all potentials of experience, not just the challenging, discouraging, and depressing ones.
People often wonder how I can always see the silver lining in things, but it’s because I know from experience that things always turn around, as is the nature of cycles, and that even in my darkest hours, allowing energy to flow through me without judgment and inviting perspective brought release and hope to light.
May you each experience the hope and potential seeded within all experiences to create from.
It’s been an incredibly busy month both in our personal and professional lives here and yet also incredibly rich with so much new sprouting, planting of seeds, anchoring of new cycles, and putting dreams into motion. This is a short update and words of inspiration before this Faery goes Down Under, as I’m immersed in things here before I leave for 19 days until 5/28 – traveling on Wednesday May 10th’s Full Moon in fact (known as the Full Flower or Big Leaf Moon) and will be in Australia for the New Moon of May 25th too, which is so cool. You’ll be able to follow along my travels via Instagram and Facebook, but I will not be available via text, phone, nor instant messaging. I’m keeping things simple with just wi-fi while away and will check emails now and then, but mostly only sharing quick inspirational photos of travels via social media.
I’m unclear whether I’ll put together any big blog when I return like I usually do from travels – maybe just a summary take-away. I will see how the moment moves me when things take place, but quick shares are much more conducive to my life these days than long recounts of experiences unless I really have the time.
The energy has felt very potent the last few days and I’ve felt to be in preparation for this trip energetically. My body seems to be recalibrating to a lot of new as well as has been channeling a lot of energy and downloads, so I’ve been resting when prompted, which is unusual for me who never takes naps. I continue to experience massive synchronicities, instant manifestation, and how everything I write about happens in the real world while I’m writing it.
I did a powerful Reiki Healing Attunement a few days ago and within hours everything I did it for came to be. (Another of my reminder nudges that if you have this as a tool, or any other tools you’ve learned, please don’t forget to use them, as they are powerful, but not only that, it’s your way of meeting intention with action and owns that you’re a co-creative partner who’s stepping up!)
Anyway, my writing has been going excellent, despite the full schedule of things, but also because of the full schedule and my honoring my body’s needs, the strong sense I had about a week ago that the last part would be written upon return from Australia has come to be. I got the message that there is something in Australia that will shift within me and open me to the conclusion of my book, so to just keep a healthy pace with writing and the timing would reveal itself.
Everyone has their own way of writing, but for me it hasn’t been an outlined plan, nor did I know the story until it wrote itself. So basically when I sit down each day, the material is channeled. I don’t try to foresee or start writing parts of it in my head. At the end of the day I let it be and start fresh the next…and then it flows when it is ready. So it’s very alive and has been a super fun process for me.
So I will basically have it all done before I leave except the very last part, which will conclude the week I return. I’m super excited! Again, this is only the first draft, which means I have much editing and what-not to do.
I’ll also be getting back to some Magick Crystal Wand creating when I return, but I’ve concluded my client work this week and will be immersed in my dreams, as well as welcoming in a new co-partner into my life when back! Yay!
Quick update on Dave’s speaking tour in Australia for Voiceless – it’s been going amazing. I’ve heard feedback from others in Australia and via social media on how awesome his talks have been. Very proud of him. He’s had quite a busy tour with just the first weekend he arrived in Sydney and this weekend off in Tasmania to explore (he said the MONA Museum there is the most incredible museum he’s ever been to and like a Disneyland for adults) before he completes his last four talks this week, back-to-back. He’s already done three for full rooms in Perth, Adelaide, and Sydney. He’ll be concluding with Hobart, Canberra, Brisbane, and Melbourne. In between talks he’s been in media interviews and been enjoying the local vegan food. An article he wrote came out in The Age last week, as well as an article in The Guardian was done on his talk and came out a couple of days ago, with another from The Guardian from a post-talk interview with him due out in a few weeks by them as well. Busy guy!
Looking forward to joining him in Melbourne shortly for our adventure exploring the area between there and Brisbane.
Until, then, here’s some last words before I go.
I posted these photos of my Selenite Spiral Unicorn Horn Wand because it’s been one of the supportive energies for me during my time alone and writing, along with my newly created Faery Succulent Crystal Gardens and some other magickal friends. But more importantly I’m sharing them for inspiration to ignite the dreamer within you to focus and act upon those dreams. Besides we could all use a little Unicorn magick in remembering who we really are.
Unicorns help make your dreams a reality – taking you on a freeing ride beyond limitations and beyond the wildest parts of your imagination.
They are masters of the light and transformation who can bestow the gifts of magick to those who are pure of heart, or who commit to a life of pure expression.
These mystical beings help us to believe that anything is possible and support us to do what is thought to be impossible.
Life is fleeting…a blink of an eye…yet many of us keep pushing off the things in life we know in our hearts we would love to experience AND came here to experience.
Tomorrow is no guarantee, but you do have this moment.
Express the things you’ve wanted to share with others, do something courageous toward your dreams, experience something new you haven’t, and savor what you do have.
It may make all the difference and begin to write a new chapter that begins the first day you really start living.
I hope this morning, this new day of a new fresh year 1-1-1 (as 2017 equals 10/1), is being met with an air of unlimited possibilities being awakened and stirred from within you that you will carry forth everyday following. I know I felt energized and revved to go as I woke up to another stunning, gift-of-a-day here in Tahoe. Yesterday and last evening were incredibly anchoring for me, as I sat in gratitude and review of this year and my life, in general, and could clearly feel the probable future I’m creating.
There were a few stand-out things I reflected upon experiencing this past year, which include, but are not limited to, deep embodied peace and fluidity, expanded heart and connection, greater alignment, and laser beam clarity and focus of my heart’s path like never before.
We spent a very intentful and quiet New Years Eve together, which likely is my favorite one yet and was filled with tons of gratitude for everything in our lives and where we find ourselves in the here and now.
For us this involved time in Nature and lots of self-nurturing, as well as solitude to fully be in reflection and stillness in our magickal sanctuary home and with the presence of all of my magickal best friends.
We all know exactly what is perfectly supportive and enriching to our needs and desires to anchor and for us, this was it…..a day kicked off with a pinky fresh smoothie creation reflecting an open vulnerable heart, innocence of renewal, and passionate wonder (blend of dragonfruit, mango, banana, orange, ginger, fresh coconut, ground flax, sliced almonds, cinnamon, and alkaline water topped with a sprig of chocolate mint), then spent out enjoying a deliciously fun vegan lunch (Blissed Out Nachos with cashew cheeze and Devilish sandwich with their signature no-egg salad), followed by a hike at beautiful Fallen Leaf Lake where I brought to life the snow bunny I shared with you yesterday (which was so meaningful for me to do on this day), and then an evening of candle lights, foot massages, baking vegan pizza from scratch and cookie dough brownies (we topped with salted caramel vegan ice cream and raspberries), jacuzzi time under the stars while stating our gratitude and intentions until the Moon moved behind the mountains, dinner, movie, and in bed by 10:15 pm – all done in my new white rabbits and snowballs flannel midnight navy jammies.
I knew I would wake up to ring in the New Year and I did, at exactly 11:59 pm I magickally awoke and watched the clock turn midnight, the stars twinkle outside, placed my hands upon my crystals and crystal skull that sit next to my side of the bed, and shared a New Year’s kiss before resting my head back on my pillow and snuggled my enchanted stuffed rabbit until I fell back into dream land.
As mentioned, we’d received news yesterday that really concluded the year so perfectly and filled us with excitement and full hearts. That was also a huge gift to start 2017 off.
I know so many of you have inspired hearts of delicious anticipation for what you feel opening for you in this year of great potential and I’m excited to feel how all of that will be anchoring in as a collective.
It’s not the specifics that matter, but the essence you hold in heart and intend with all of you.
So looking forward to all of the stories and shares that others will be flowing in over this year. I sense it to be a hugely fertile energetic field of experience, in relative ways for each, for sure!
Let’s make every day a fresh new start and not just the first day of the year. Keep those intents and goals fueled and make commitments that are meaningful to your life…ones you know you just can’t live without any longer. Then take it moment to moment with steps that are both ones you can see yourself able to do, but also challenge a little more of yourself each day.
Yesterday we went on a hike that took us through the realm of the ice Faeries where ice castles, ice crystals, and ice beings dwell. I even found a beautiful Sun-lit Nature’s Christmas tree – all to enjoy in solitude, as no one was around. It was fantastical. It was magickal. It was my home. I hope you enjoy a stroll through the icy world we discovered and that enchanted this Winter baby a little bit more. Keep believing!
Every morning provides you the opportunity to begin again…to face the day, your life, with an even more open heart and to breathe from the sacred seat of your soul. The sky is swathed in blankets of pink around your inner child’s most cherished dreams…dreams that expand before you and breathe with innocent wonder, inviting your nurtured embrace into the field of possibilities. Come dance in the realm of imagination and dream your wishes alive.
We’ve officially moved into our new place this past Sunday 11/6 and it’s been quite a busy several days both leading up to the move and since, with still more to go as we not only complete the full transition, but get the Magick Bus prepped for storage and selling. It’s amazing how easy it is, on an emotional and mental level, to transition from home to home for us, which mirrors the ease and joy we experienced waking up in new cities, states, and national parks over the last year. Fluidity has become our way of life and change continues to be my best friend.
So many beautiful alignments have shown up, making us know that we’re in the right place, that the guidance and message I received to come here were loud and clear, and that all things are aligned, not to mention reflect a continuation of magickal manifestation ramping up increasingly.
More and more I’m seeing that all of the hard work I’ve invested over the years and beyond is coming full circle in beautiful blessings.
It was hard for so long to have only belief fueling my journey, but that consistent commitment to knowing within myself that everything I was doing was in fact part of the beauty of life, regardless of where I found myself along the way in process, has changed the perspective of that journey to enjoyment and brought me to a place of creating with greater ease and flow….Gifts in abundance for my patience and willingness to implement new processes with the growth I embraced.
This included a beautiful email message the day before we moved in from our new landlord, which carried the energy of the way I speak and was so full of light, not to mention, mirrors just what I had felt from the place.
Here’s the message:
“I am confident you will both enjoy your winter stay at the le Chateaux Dans le Ceil! There is a lot of magic, beauty and positive energy here. Namaste, Brian”
It made me feel that we had a lot more in common than we knew and that proved true when on the day of our move and meeting with him again he shared with me that on our first meeting he felt I looked so familiar.
I thought, perhaps a past life bleed through (which I still in fact feel), but he mentioned then that after he thought he knew me from somewhere that he’d looked on Facebook and saw that we were in fact friends there with many shared friends.
He further continued to say that he and his wife were also Reiki Masters and studied under William Lee Rand.
Hehe! Talk about magickal manifestations…not only to be in this beautiful home, but to attract such positive energy.
He went on to say that he had Reiki’d the whole place…Yes, that’s why Dave and I both immediately felt good and inspired right away from first seeing it. I had in fact known it was the one for us and felt the energy just from the photos online.
We also discovered how the owner and I both had the same little art travel case, both loved Ankhs (he saw my Ankh ring tattoo, which opened that dialogue), and both were creatives and far from techy people.
He and his wife had built and decorated the place to be like a Santorini cliff house all in white with touches of aquas and with underwater sea life paintings throughout, which is perfect for this Pisces and both Dave and I being Water signs, not to mention I’ve been to Santorini and loved it, of course the all-white has mirrored dream and cosmic journey sequences for me I’ve had that were profound, and the aqua is my favorite color.
They also had created this place to be very relaxing with everything you’d need to live a truly nurtured and inspired life all self-contained to include things like an outdoor jacuzzi on the deck and an indoor sauna – all great for after ski, hiking, or simply wanting to soak in life.
There’s even a wonderful gas fireplace as the main heating element for the cozy 1000 square feet that’s on a thermostat so now and then, including in the night and morning, the lovely flames will go on and added to the views from every window and open floor plan, it really is incredible.
Anyway, we got to enjoy our first night and morning in our new retreat home on Sunday, which came after a big day of moving ourselves in.
There are 105 (yes I counted them) steps to reach our little “castle in the sky”, which is also like a wonderful tree house in the clouds surrounded by tree spirits at nearly 7500 elevation.
I guess I must be in shape as we’ve now done nearing 3 d0zen trips up and down, so far, carrying heavy loads and boxes, but it is so worth it.
And we took advantage of the jacuzzi on our first night after dinner I made overlooking the city lights around the lake and viewing the moon and stars.
I knew that Cosmo, although not physically with us, was and has been so present in this whole process, along with my other loves, in helping to bring this all together and were in the stars twinkling at us from above.
How I’ve missed him nonetheless, wishing he could have physically experienced our new home, but I know in every way he is with us enjoying it in a more expansive way and is my angel presiding over the magick in my life with Joy, Nestor, and Gaia. I am just so grateful I had the chance to take him to the lake, as I promised him so he could take it all in.
Every time I look out at the lake, he is with me, as all my loves are, since we’ve all shared this place and these views together at one time or another.
I don’t think we’re going to get tired of the view here in our new sanctuary, nor all of the nurturing things this beautiful home has to offer us, and i feel so excited to get settled and jump back into my writing once we’re fully settled. Oh, how my imagination is flying!
We also have my friend Janet coming out to Lake Tahoe this Friday for the weekend on her way back home to visit and spend some time exploring and hiking the area with us, which is new to her and her sweet little dog, Daisy. You may remember that she traveled with us for several weeks during our time in Wyoming and Montana. Then she went to my friend Hillary’s new ranch where she’s been since July helping out with things there.
Anyway, this is the perfect place for me to hibernate surrounded in inspiration for the next 6 months and I’ll soon be fully immersed in my new life of which we are so grateful for.
Our lives have been such a gift in every way, and especially magickal since the day we said goodbye to our home and way of life in Orange County and jumped in the Magick Bus.
Indeed it is a “Magick Bus”, as its brought so much incredible beauty and richness to our lives and opened us to unlimited and expansive possibilities, where we are constantly updating our thinking and aligning more with our feelings and essence.
Today felt like the perfect day to share these announcements with the rain coming down, which is what you hear in the video, cleansing all that has come before and making way for the new we are creating. Our Magick Bus journey has come to full circle closure, but the journey has just begun and is expanding into greater and unlimited possibilities, all anchored in the imagination of our hearts, as is aligned with the cosmic flow abound. We’ll be nesting in for the winter where I’ll be finishing my book in the inspiration of our “chateaux dans le ciel” (as its owners named it) – “castle in the sky” new home for the next 6 months while the rest of our visions unfold. I couldn’t imagine a more perfect place to create our next dreams. We’ll miss the Magick Bus and her nurturing guardianship, as well as her ability to provide opportunity to see with new eyes, and we wish for her to find the perfect soul/s whom she can help bring their dreams into manifestation too.
Please excuse the breaks, as my recorder kept stopping and I tried to just pick right back up.
