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.

Winter’s Breath


20170105_145831_resizedYesterday the snow storm stopped and left an incredible otherworld of snowy wonder all around us. Perfect for snow shoeing and immersing in winter’s majesty. We have the Tahoe Rim Trail just a minute’s walk from our place so away we went into the deep, powdered, snow blanketed forest on the edge of the mountain. The stillness and magick was breathtaking and such a gift, as the snow was untouched, leaving this enchanted realm all to ourselves to explore. Even the braids that I wore had come undone and became frosted over making me feel like a true Snow Faery. At one point I catapulted myself backwards into the fresh snow and left my mark as such. I hope you enjoy this walk through another world with beings all around.

The first couple of photos are of the banisters to our stairs just outside our front door covered in snow like long pine cones and a glimpse of our snow covered car. The last photo is this morning’s sunrise of hope and promise.

Animal Spirit Guide Support ~ Enter The Enchanted Forest


I’ve posted this link (below) before, but felt guided to share it again so that you can take a moment to breathe in your intentions and discover what animal spirit guide is by your side right now with a message of support to assist you with them.

This is a great way to put closure to the current year, by focusing on the energy that will open doors for you in the new year.

Take your time to focus and be clear with one particular area of your life you would like support with, or something larger you are wanting to manifest for the year ahead.

I decided to explore The Enchanted Forest twice.

The first time was in asking a broader question to assist me with 2016 intents I have.

The second time was in asking a very “now” question to support some anxiety I’ve been working through around putting closure to this year and accomplishing projects at hand in order to do so.

My animal spirit guide wisdom was perfect.

For the first I received:

The Butterfly ~ Transformation, Acceptance, Gratitude

The ultimate symbol of transformation is now an integral part of your life.  Be glad, for you are the butterfly!

The butterfly energy will allow you to continually transform, gradually lifting your level higher and higher as you cycle through the stages of birth, crawling, cocooning and flight for each new stage of your life.

And as you go through this process, over and over, learn to accept that each stage is a necessary part of transformation.  Butterfly energy will help you not only accept, but actually enjoy the early crawling stage, as you learn new skills and new ways of being.  This energy will also help you understand that the chrysalis stage, wrapped in a cocoon with direction unclear, is a necessary state before you can emerge in your full glory.

And as you finally emerge as a butterfly, something that will happen to you many times in your lifetime, stretch out your beautiful wings and fly, enjoying life to the fullest, engrossed within this moment and this moment only, as you drink the nectar of the garden and give thanks for the many blessings of your life.

And then, of course, you will do it all over again, for you are the butterfly.

This made so much sense on a multitude of levels, especially since I continue to be in the chrysalis stage within my cocoon and will be for a while longer. And also because long, long ago butterfly had been received to me as my symbol for my life’s work.

The second I received was equally perfect in message to assist me with flow right now:

The Doe ~ Effortlessness, Awareness, Intention

You are blessed indeed to have the beautiful doe as your power animal.  She appears delicate, but she is very strong.  Her strength comes from her deep connection to all that surrounds her.  She will teach you to stand within the moment, quiet and observant, sensing all that is, feeling each leaf of the forest as a deep part of your being.

She will also teach you lightness, lightness of the spirit and of the feet.  With a deep intuitive sense of what is, you will know exactly when to take action and to do so decisively, moving quickly and gracefully in response to your knowing.  She will teach you to sense the world around you so deeply and instinctively that you are always one step ahead of the events coming your way. 

Let her light spirit fill you with the freedom and joy of being, so that you bound and leap through life effortlessly, always sure-footed, always deeply attuned, even when entering a new part of the forest.  She will help you welcome the new experiences of life, giving a joyous welcoming to new beginnings.

As the doe, you will learn to be fearless, to trust your intuition completely and know that a deep awareness and connection with the world, combined with a belief in yourself, is the best possible protection there is.

That was definitely supportive and I could feel a release and relief in reading Doe’s message reminder to me to sink deeper into right now.

So now it’s your turn!

Take your own journey into the Enchanted Forest here to receive a supportive message:

And if you DO journey into the Enchanted Forest, I’d love to hear what Animal Spirit Guide was awaiting you. Please leave a short note in the comments with the friend that met you there.

Magickal blessings to you!!

Journey to the Enchanted Forest – Your New Moon & New Year Power Animal Awaits


eagleI don’t know about you, but it doesn’t take much to get me to enter the Enchanted Forest. No arm, or wing, twisting needed here. 😉

So when a dear friend of mine posted about his power animal he was united with from entering into this Realm and how synchronous and aligned it was for him, I was joyously led to let my heart explore this for myself.

Some may call it coincidence, luck of the draw, or random, but having seen at least a dozen people do this (including those closest and dear) and heard how their animal that showed up was absolutely perfect for them and what they are focused on and needing, and trying it myself and experiencing the same, I’d say there’s more to this than simple randomness. But that’s just me.

Intention is powerful and when we are clear in our hearts, the reflection of that will be mirrored. You can use this link below at any time in your life when you are interested in seeing what animal’s guidance and message would be most supportive for you at this time, but it feels extra potent right now on the Eve of the New Moon and soon-to-be New Year of the Horse, to do a little fun check in on which animal will be your guide for this new energy you are embarking upon.

(Note: Try to do this just once. Your mind may want to test this and keep retrying until you get a different result, but trust that the first time is the charm and what you receive is perfect.)

It’s just like pulling a Tarot card or receiving a Fortune Cookie message.

I, personally, happen to love working with Animal Spirit Guides and it is something that comes through all the time when I work with clients doing Reiki sessions. And of course you know animals are most enjoyable for me to channel through my paintings, which is why I created the series – Universal ARKitecture – a series of Power Animal Spirit Paintings.

My own Power Animal that met me in the Enchanted Forest, when I embarked on the journey invite is the Eagle. This was not surprising to me in the least, as the winged ones have been prevalent in my life SO very much. I wondered if they would show up in doing this and in fact they did and it aligns with what I’ve been receiving about my personal year.

This was Eagle’s message for me:

Greatness ~ Leadership ~ Independence

A potent symbol of true greatness, the eagle brings many gifts into your life.  

Eagle energy will flood you with courage, a free spirit and independence that will take you beyond the limits of your life to date.  Your own greatness will begin to emerge as you welcome eagle power into your life and feel it surging within you. 

The eagle lives in the tall trees and high cliffs and soars above life with majesty, blessed with extremely keen eyesight.  You will find that you are now able to stay above the fray and still know exactly what is going on and when to dip down and utilize your new-found powers of leadership.  Be true to your beliefs; lead and others will follow, for you are the eagle.

So now it’s your turn! Weeeeeeeeeeeee!

If you want a fun, magickal, and yet very uncanny experience, while getting the chance to meet your friend and guide in the mystical Faery Realm, you might enjoy flying, walking, skipping, leaping, swimming, or dancing your way with sacred intention, into the Enchanted Forest:
