Everyday I Fall In Love A Little Bit More


24796551_10214361690263292_2730219745401257661_n

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.

Wonderland Delight ~ Equinox Enchantment


21686243_10213718403021513_6183648663430068662_n.jpg

On this doorway between Summer and Autumn, I’m celebrating all of it AND Winter! Yes, just as I suspected (and just may have had my own little additional hand in with Jack Frost and the Faeries), the snow began to fall right after I completed my book and then continued yesterday on and off, and all through the night (that has me singing my fav from Cyndi Lauper now…All through the night….). This left an incredible, fresh wonderland this morning for me to wake to.

21687549_10213718403781532_492839788084385554_n.jpg21686209_10213718404221543_7131155818041849000_n.jpg

But that was preceded by an awe-inspiring sunset last night too, which had me in “ooo’s and ahhh’s” over and over. It felt like the light and portal I was watching before me, was taking place inside my heart and spirit.

21686205_10213718194656304_7064846556915835476_n21686269_10213718195176317_3949336649960431463_n21686206_10213718195896335_1096190490502063532_n

Even the magickal Astrid was giddy with delight at her very first snow, running all around the rooms like a little speed racer this morning. I SO enjoyed watching her look out the window at the snow – a Faery tale image come true. This was her last evening looking out at the new-fallen snow.

IMG_20170921_184639684.jpg

And then this morning with the glowing sun beginning to light this new world in front of her like a warm Cosmic candle.

IMG_20170922_070354395_HDR.jpg

She is so much like a snowshoe hare to me, I could imagine her out in it, and turning to white with the touch of her silver toes to the snow beneath her.

21761710_10213719593051263_1016348230459656078_n.jpg

She also reminds me of a harp seal. This photo is from yesterday, as she laid all relaxed and full of joy from the vision of snow. She takes on so many forms, but this photo captures her harp seal imitation, as I often call her. So perfect for the wintery snow scene… Flippers and all, which mom would likely do better with too, hehe!!

IMG_20170922_064606845_HDR.jpg

And this is our picture window that is like a portal to me into another world.

I watched the sun rise over the snow blanketed vista, this morning, creating cotton candy pink clouds and light. Then clouds danced across the Lake’s surface like steam rising and geese began to fly.

21764823_10213718403301520_9186129113622538330_n

Just incredible.

I even put my one bare foot in the snow on the deck for the first time and hobbled my way with my healing boot on the other across to the banister to take it all in.

IMG_20170922_065553307_HDR.jpg

Enchantment ran through me and tickled my heart with delight.

And as the pink clouds dispersed, everything turned to white and icy blue in the full light of morning. The clouds continued to dance and glide across the water like the world was upside down and the lake became the sky.

As above, so below.

I hope you enjoy these photos shared from this magickal portal to your own heart.

Magick Crystal Wands Now Available


It’s been a busy few days, so it took a while to find the right space to tune in with the Magick Crystal Wands and confirm which would be offered and which, if any, would remain with me. My initial instincts were correct, although I have a special bond with each, on which one was in fact meant for me. So, I’ll just briefly share the three that are available and you can explore this link for more photos and information on each of them if they call: Magick Crystal Wands

But first off, yesterday was quite a gift as we made our way to Fallen Leaf Lake where I’ve discovered hidden treasures in the past, including some feathers and wand. The road in is challenging to get in on because of all the snow and no plowing there, so all of Winter it’s not been accessible. But some vehicles have gone through more recently it seemed, making a pathway and so we entered, parking in a different spot, as it got harder as we went along and then trekked across the snow to the lake.

It was fun to discover that around the perimeter of the lake it was all thawed out, but getting in there was full of snow. This was what seemed like divine timing and meant to be, as there was a treasure chest of gifts awaiting me, not to mention some magickal finds like this Aladdin’s lamp (yes, I made some wishes) and some sweet mallard hen feathers after a connection with a mallard couple. The stones along the beach at water’s edge were gorgeous too in marbled rainbow colors.

It truly was a beautiful experience, including the connection with the ducks and how the hen literally gifted me 6 feathers (nice symbolism) after they deliberately came over and she preened and pulled them out for me to get once they left to nap by a rock in the water. That was after they swam over and walked up to where I sat to say hi when I called them over. I smiled with delight.

And to my surprise this thawing unveiled a lot of wood pieces singing out to me and so yes, there will be quite a few more wands in the future. I also found me another amazing staff.

Although I now know there will be more, this is not going to be for some time, as I need to focus on some important things right now, then will be making my large pieces first, and then the wands. 

That was a little detour, although connected, to share the magick of yesterday and the future surprises.

But back to my original blog post link I shared above.

In that post, you can learn about all that has gone into them, the materials/elements, including time spent infusing each with added intention and activation by any or all combinations of sound through my 432 hz binaural beat theta wave pair of crystal sound bowls, chakra drum, tibetan bowl, and my own voice.

I did receive quite a few messages from people about which one they initially felt a draw to, so I’ll be contacting them first, in order of messages received, to see if in fact they still would like to bring them into their life.

Many times it can be an instant connection meant to be, other times it’s about that energy exchange in the moments of seeing them that is only needed, and still other times the investment of commitment doesn’t translate the same as desire.

So, if you feel one of these are for you, you can still message me with your desire, as they are not yet spoken for officially.

These are the three available with their corresponding value. Each will come with a small accompanying gift.

Neptune & Nymph Wand (God of the Sea, sacred song and spirit of the Nymphs, and MerFaery energy) – $270 + shipping/handling – SOLD

 

Lightning Rod, Sacred Spiral Wand (Grouse feathers and powerful transformation energy) – $130 + shipping/handling – SOLD

 

Twin Seer, Bridge Weaver Wand (As Above, So Below, Goose feathers and double focused energy) – $300 + shipping/handling – SOLD

Magick Crystal Wands ~ Spirit in Action


I’ve been mentioning my being absorbed in channeling some creations alongside my current focuses, and on social media I posted a sneak peak of these pieces a couple of days ago. I know several people were anxious to learn more and see more of them, so this is that share. I didn’t set out to create them, but the nudge was strong and therefore I did. This turned into creating Magick Crystal Wands, but of a very whimsical, raw, organic, and imperfectly perfect nature. Substantial, mystical, and fashioned as if the Fae themselves hand crafted them from treasures collected in Nature from her forests, waters, and retrieved from Cosmic portals.

Here the wands rest, charging with my other personal wands and crystals after their sound baths.

 

These Spirit friends are a gentle way to invite powerful energy to partner in rituals, healing, activating intention, drawing and focusing concentration of energy. They are personal instruments that hold a lot of power. Wands carry a very male oriented energy, but each of these has channeled through as an integration of sacred male and female in harmony by the additional elements interwoven.

Every twist and weave is deliberately threaded and every piece lovingly placed, all by hand without tools and completely surrendered to guidance channeling through, with me as a conduit for their manifestation.

I didn’t even envision or imagine what they would look like. I had no idea until the moment, what was happening and as if in trance, I just allowed my hands to create the magick wanting through. It was flowing, fun, potent, and even physically grueling to my hands and fingers, amazing me at each corner how every single part fit like a puzzle piece, even though they’d been gathered at different intervals, times, and places.

I was amazed at how the flow and shape of the wood itself was the perfect curvature of the crystals that were to be placed there. And the feathers, found along our Magick Bus journey, were the perfect energy to carry the wands on wings of intent and empower their Air nature to channel Spirit.

The branches of wood are spirited with life force and almost lit up on the forest floor while hiking, as if beckoning me to hear their call, “It is me. I am ready and offer myself to your hands. Please be my channel of awakening to the purpose I am alive for.”

And so I listened.

I left the wood just as it was, other than to softly sand into splinter-less touch that absorbed the linseed oil I lovingly nurtured into their skins for longevity, which produced a lovely sheen and enhancement to their natural beauty and color.

And the rest was also about listening to the elements wanting to be brought forth, silver, gold, and silver/gold blends of wire, satin cord and thread of robin’s egg blue, crystals and stones, metal floral/leaf adornments, vegan leather, feathers from my beloved bird tribe, and lots of love.

This was a first for me to use wire wrapping and it was intentional that with everything, including this, for it all to be a mixture of raw and refined. Nothing was to be perfected in mind, but flowed in Spirit.

And each was infused with added intention and activation by any or all combinations of sound through my 432 hz binaural beat theta wave pair of crystal sound bowls, chakra drum, tibetan bowl, and my own voice.

They are ancient, timeless, and also seem to have walked through portals from places and realms beyond this one, perhaps reflections of pieces I’ve retrieved along the journey to manifest at this time and place for what is to come.

And they do indeed blend a synergy of balancing elements within each as well, drawing the power and beauty of their purity in a very focused directive.

Nature and Cosmos are both alive and strong in each.

The ancient and visionary are merged.

The power and benevolence of boundless love for the highest good is alive and strong.

And they have manifested during some potent time periods of recently, including one being fully birthed on the Pisces New Moon Eclipse – my birthday.

For now I’ve taken a break before continuing with the rest of the creations to come – to include a scepter, 2 staves, and a headpiece – as there is much to integrate and prepare for with these very large and even more involved channelings that I’ve been told will be instruments for opening portals.

I wasn’t sure if any of the creations would be offered to others, but I’m sensing that likely 3 of the 4 Magick Crystal Wands will be. The large pieces unlikely, but either way I will share them when they come to fruition.

I have a feeling I know which one will be staying with me. That said, I’m still awaiting final word on which will be available, but am told to share them now, as perhaps this will be confirming as to the ones reaching out to others. Please feel free to message me if one speaks to you.

There is much more to them than I can write in words, but perhaps you’ll feel that through viewing them.

And with that, I’ll share them each, in the order they were created. I love them all SO much. It will be hard to part for sure.

The first is my Neptune & Nymph Wand.

This piece is quite something and embodies Neptune’s potent energy (God of the Sea) along with the sacred song and spirit of a Nymph. There is an essence blend of MerFaery here too.

Encrusted with Ice Quartz, turquoise, and Double Terminated Quartz down its shaft, a thicker silver wire wraps them in a webbing reminiscent of scales on a fin or ancient netting unsuccessfully capturing a Mermaid yet here now holds her treasures dear.

Near the bottom of the webbing thread of satin cord and silver wire, encircled like a floral wreath, I’ve threaded what might have been the crown worn by a Nymph that slips in and out of waters from the woods, or a MerFaery who loves all of Nature, but finds home in the sea. Both being able to slip in and out of land and water, but most at home with watery worlds that remind her of her origins and the Cosmic source of all life.

The wand is almost scepter-like and the way the wood naturally is carved, is like it is dripping with the waves of Neptune’s energy, or a light-bearing torch to travel to the depths of the ocean’s abyss. It almost looks like a wax casting and the area where the stones sit, is like a doorway through the wand revealing its inner beauty and jewels within its treasure chest sanctum.

Sitting atop the forked wand is a powerful Lemurian Quartz with a rare timelink to the past.

I think it all speaks for itself.

 

The next comes to us as a wizard’s gift. This is my Merlin & Lady of the Lake Wand.

This wand called to me from the shore of Fallen Leaf Lake here and I was taken back by its appearance immediately. It was already fully carved, smoothed (as if someone had rigorously sanded it), and has a beautiful golden blonde coloring with perfectly spaced dots in a design along its shaft. I do not know the type of wood it is, but I know it is not of this world, as it was ominously placed out in the open like this for me to find it, singing to me like a wizard’s wand would.

On its own, without any added adornments, it is a powerful and complete wand, but I immediately knew that it desired elements to bring forth the harmony of its embodiment.

This to include three irridescent blue Mallard feathers and one Blue Jay feather at the center. Along with these beauties, there sits a Tibetan Quartz above them at center and a combo of silver and gold wire individually woven and ending in triple spirals.

And at the top, a very special Quartz point wrapped in an intertwined gold and silver wire ending in a spiral at each side.

The Quartz at top is a small point, but large in its presence. Since this wand was already potent on its own and had a perfectly rounded bottom and softened diagonal point, it did not want any large stone, but simply one to enhance and act as a fine-tuned channel at top.

It was evident which crystal it would be, as only this one had the exact slant to its bottom that perfectly matched flush to the top of the slant of the wand.

But as small as this Quartz point is, it is no ordinary crystal. It happens to be the one that Fiver, the mouse who I helped transition in peace and love, jumped aboard to fly off into the otherworld when he transitioned.  But to add to that, when I looked even closer I discovered perhaps why this had been the crystal chosen to be with him and why it was so powerful for journeying beyond.

It happens to be a Channeler Transmitter Quartz, or Dow or Trans-Channeler Quartz, as they are known with perfect 3-7-3 and 7-3-7 sides to its faces, front and back. You can read more about that here: Dow or Trans-Channeler Crystal. Divine balance and connection with Universal Truth being its essence.

The Mallard Duck feathers embody spiritual freedom, grace on water, self expression, emotional strength and protection, mystic and seer, combines land and water balance, integration, and manifestation, knowing what to do and how to do it, graceful self confidence, knowing, preparedness, letting go, speaking truth, intuition, gentle flow, the now, and being that they walk the Earth, swim in the waters (fresh and ocean), and roam the sky, they are links between Heaven and Earth, or this world and another, and also represent eternal life.

Blue Jay brings the energies of clarity (in this case double clarity/vision to express purity and truth of heart and soul with great clarity of thought in bringing these through to share), communication, presence, wise and balanced use of personal power, resourceful adaptability for ease, creative self-expression and assertion, sound and song, authenticity, and bringing higher thoughts into action.  Their crest that reaches into the heavens, directly links both Earth and Universal/Cosmic energies, bridging them for integration and active expression of divinity brought into embodiment.

So both bird spirits linking and bridging here and beyond, personal and collective, immediate and bigger picture.

 

Then we have my Lightning Rod, Sacred Spiral Wand.

This lovely wand, although more fine than the others, is a presence of power in motion. The wood is a rich and deeper brown, smooth and perfectly contorted to flash that energy through like lightning.

Again, the tiny Lemurian Quartz point that sits atop the end has the perfect shape to fit the groove at the end of the wand like no other crystal, but it, could do.

It is wrapped in silver wire, which also swaddles the three lovely grouse feathers flowing from its shaft and then spirals down further – the only wand with descending/ascending spiral like that of the personal power symbol embodied within the Sacred Spiral that the Grouse is connected with.

This is so because of the way a Grouse moves and dances in a spiral – an ancient symbol of birth and rebirth. Their medicine is reflective of a whirlpool or tornado spiral that moves one to center, which allows for vision and enlightenment.

The spiral movement of the silver wire also mirrors the movement of energy embodied in this wand.

I’m reminded of the Celtic Goddess Etain (pronounced Ay-deen) also known as the “Shining One” and is one of the White Ladies of the Fae for some reason. Etain helps us know that any challenge, even those that feel overbearing, can be overcome and we can always regain our shining light, while knowing our true beauty and authenticity, though superficial and illusory things will fade away. Her presence is a guiding golden light on the path of transformation, while showing us the wisdom way to balance, wholeness, and rebirth back to our own light.

There is a quality to this wand reminiscent of this message, but also combining the impactful transformation available to us all through change that can suddenly and surprisingly flash into our lives like lightning, but creates the ability to rise again more beautifully and authentically like the phoenix. This wand draws gentle, but immensely powerful energy to aid your focus so this journey becomes more natural like a spiral.

 

And last we have my Twin Seer, Bridge Weaver Wand – As Above, So Below.

This beautiful wood spirit is the longest of them all and has a lovely golden amber with darker brown vein and natural cracks. It’s like two wands in one with a bend at center whose curvature precisely and perfectly aligned flush with the gorgeous, rainbow infused Lemurian Quartz that sits there.

Above and Below this Lemurian are two turquoise stones all wrapped in gold wire that ends at two spirals.

The handle is fashioned with brown vegan leather intentfully woven with robin’s egg blue satin cord and gold wire.

And at top you’ll find a gorgeous self-healed Lemurian Quartz whose base is a cluster of gorgeous new growth crystals with pinky apricot coloring. It, too, sits perfect at the top and is held in place with gold wire that also cradles 10 Quartz points and 3 Goose feathers.

These 10 Quartz points act as an extra conduit between both main Lemurian Quartz points, as well as reflects like a mirror, deflects as protection, creates a bridge to journey from one experience, time, place, to another, and creates the ripples and surface of water its Goose friends gracefully glide upon.

Again, these 10 Quartz points perfectly fit and completed the top of the wand, as that area was naturally peeled away by Nature, leaving the perfect alcove for the crystals to embed themselves flush, as an extension of the wood and becoming one with it.

The Goose and its feathers embody loyalty, forging ahead with bravery and confidence, teamwork and comradery, protection, clear communication, determination, dedication, fellowship, fidelity, fertility, the balance of knowing when to lead or follow, compassionate keepers of the community and embody the sacred circle and sanctity of the cycles of life, astute navigation, discernment of life path and choices, teamwork, protection, and committed responsibility. Geese never leave one of their own behind for any reason. They will stay with the sick and injured until they are either well again, or to support them as they transition.

For some reason I am reminded of the energies of the Norse Goddess Frigga and Norse God Odin. Frigga’s sacred animal is the Goose.

Field of Stardust Dreams


Cosmic puffs of dandelions consumed me in wondrous inspiration.

Like whirling dervishes of eternal magick, they enchanted me into the dance.

The portal to a field of stardust dreams was opened and enchanting mysteries invoked alchemy within.

A rich truth was awakened without need to understand.

Any wish I had, I could command.

Welcome back the Faeries giggled.

Follow Me Into the Faery Realm ~ Do You Hear The Call?


Faery portals have been in activation lately.

Well, when aren’t they really?

But sometimes it’s a more intentional process 😉 Or is a result of your belief and readiness deepening.

I happen to wear several permanent ones on my own “spiritual skin”, including a Seven Pointed Faery Star on top of my left foot, which helps me to walk between worlds with all of me, and a Faery on my left “wing” that represents me sending energy to Earth along with Nestor, but there’s been a lot more of this energy abound recently and my own experience is becoming more constant rather than now and then.

It’a all part of that embodiment I talk a lot about…the more we deepen into the essence of who we are, the more consistently we will walk in that energy.

I’ve also been experiencing this Faery portal energy with the sacred tattoo designs that are channeling through, as well as seeing people really opening to this realm and drawing forth the magick more that resides in their remembrance of these soul parts they are retrieving and that partnership and honoring of our Earth Mother they are helping others to remember and activate as well.

All really great stuff! As that means the more people are remembering and awakening these parts, the more the collective experience shifts.

Recently, I’ve even had the opportunity to play “Faery Godmother” in a video I made all decked out as one with my Faery wand that I shared to help a friend’s daughter through something.

I’ve been revealing myself more and more in this way, although likely some people may still think I’m just “playing”.

Oh well!

Faeries have nothing to prove. 😉

Lasagna for dinner

20160108_122605.jpg

Lasagna left overs for lunch

 

And Laura and I have been sharing Faery Portal experiences via the ethers to enjoy Faery Tarot readings, the same virtual Faery Feasts (as Faeries love good food!) like we did for Christmas Eve and just a couple of nights ago too with comforting and grounding vegan lasagna, to bridge physical distance between us, but also to help activate things we’re manifesting.

Sometimes we’re sneakily conspiring through the portals to assist each other too. Shhhhhh! 😉

You never now where Faery magick may show up in your life (or where it might already have 😉 ), but if you’re open to it, it certainly will!

Anyway, all that to share that a lot of Faery fun has been getting me in the zone and a-flowin’! Feeling more in my element these days and surrounded by the Fae.

This recent Faery design is one example and oh how much I loved creating it!Rose Sacred Tattoo Design

A few simple ways to invite the Fae more into your experience and to open up a world of magick awaiting are to spend more time in nature communing with the plants, animals, minerals, being more present, paying attention to the subtle nudges, inviting crystal friends into your life to play and work with you, allowing yourself to engage your imagination more, use your creative energy more in a way that is fun, ask for messages or guidance from the Faeries, walk with a lighter footprint on the Earth, allow yourself to be embraced by nature when you are in need of healing, meditate in nature under a tree, near flowing water, or on a rock, sing and dance a lot – especially in nature, leave part of your yard wild, place little sparkly trinkets out in a special sanctuary you create as offering to the Faeries, communicate with them in in-between times like dawn and dusk…..

You might find it fitting to maybe even sprinkle a little glitter on you, wear natural and earthy fibers, or adorn your hair in flowers.

What ever you do, do it with whimsical lightness and keep an eye out for the subtleties that may rustle a leaf, bend some grass, turn up a dust whirlwind, move quickly past the corner of your eye, raise the hair on the back of your neck when you’re out in nature alone, or the little twinkles of light that begin to appear before your eyes.

I know this message is timely, as this was the card I pulled today – no joke!! (which just so happens to be the card on the guidebook cover), right as I am sitting to write this post and feeling the beckoning of the Faeries to journey even deeper with them.

I’m ready!! Let’s go!!! Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Will you embrace their call?

faery oracle

This card features a Faery Queen that beckons you forward into the Faery realms. She is alchemy itself and helps you hear that voice within to embrace your Faery self and enter this world where healing, ease, and beauty abounds. It is a call to your inner healer to transform the world around you. She wears a key at her neck that opens the door and holds the answers.

The card’s meaning from the guidebook: Faery connection. Second sight. Being Faery-touched. Experiencing rapid opening to the subtle worlds. The veils between worlds dissolve and you can see clearly. Increase in your gift. Healing powers increase. Belief creates reality. Knowing creates truth. Egoic doubts and cynical thoughts melt away and all is magickal and true. Seeing the path you can now follow. Connecting with your wild self. An urge to be in nature, to be with flowers, trees, fruits, plants, and stones. Shy of people who are harsh and unmagickal. A realization that there is no separation, only refusal to believe creates inability to see.

So the question is….

Are you ready to believe?

Sprinkles of Faery dust and enchantment to each of your hearts!

 

A Fairy Song ~ Poem by William Shakespeare:

Over hill, over dale,
Thorough bush, thorough brier,
Over park, over pale,
Thorough flood, thorough fire!
I do wander everywhere,
Swifter than the moon’s sphere;
And I serve the Fairy Queen,
To dew her orbs upon the green;
The cowslips tall her pensioners be;
In their gold coats spots you see;
Those be rubies, fairy favours;
In those freckles live their savours;
I must go seek some dewdrops here,
And hang a pearl in every cowslip’s ear.

The Enchantment of Your Own Divinity


enchanted christmasToday’s Daily Thought from Shakti Gawain’s Reflections in the Light: Daily Thoughts and Affirmations:

Your Own Divinity

In the stillness of meditation be with your own divinity. Pause and quietly rejoice in the feeling of oneness with the universe. At some point in your life’s path you became aware that there is more to life than what you perceive with your physical senses alone. At that moment your own spirituality was born in you.

I celebrate the birth of my spirituality.

magickal christmasMay you fully reclaim the purity and wonder that you are innately and may you come to consciously embody the joyous and miraculous spirit of creative love endowed upon you.

And if the bell doesn’t ring for you anymore, perhaps today can be your day to listen a little bit more and to invite imagination into your heart once again.

In the spirit of enchantment and wonder, I hope you enjoy last year’s Christmas post, “Believe”.

 

I Haven’t Forgotten the Way, Have You?

“There is such a place as fairyland – but only children can find the way to it. And they do not know that it is fairyland until they have grown so old that they forget the way. One bitter day, when they seek it and cannot find it, they realize what they have lost; and that is the tragedy of life. On that day the gates of Eden are shut behind them and the age of gold is over. Henceforth they must dwell in the common light of common day. Only a few, who remain children at heart, can ever find that fair, lost path again; and blessed are they above mortals. They, and only they, can bring us tidings from that dear country where we once sojourned and from which we must evermore be exiles. The world calls them its singers and poets and artists and story-tellers; but they are just people who have never forgotten the way to fairyland.” ~L.M. Montgomery, The Story Girl

Enchantment Is as Enchantment Does


faery succulent

A couple of weeks ago while visiting friends, I was immediately drawn in by these enchanted lilac succulents in their front yard garden (pictured above). It was like a moth to a flame, or in this case a faerie to a flame. 😉

I was literally overwhelmed with the magickal resonance they gave off. Our friends have a beautiful garden they’ve lovingly cultivated front and back of their house, but these lilac beauties were simply mesmerizing. And I wondered how many others actually noticed them when they passed by.

Their presence in the garden was a mutual celebration among the other plants around and the whole garden was enhanced by this shared comradery of joy. A lovely reflection for humanity and how we each touch and enhance one another’s lives by the gifts we each bring to the co-creation shared.

These beauties reminded me of times long ago, the places in my dreams that trigger memories of home, visions in my imagination, the muses for my paintings, the way my heart feels, but more simply….that enchantment is an experience of heightened awareness, tuned in to its presence that is reflected from within us.

When you surrender to the captivation of life, you live a charmed life. And not only do you experience life as enchanted, but enchanting things show up as an extension of your created reality.

I see the magickal and enchanted because I believe in it, I create it, I live it, and I’m still awake in that old childhood dreamtime.

Enchantment is a fragrant friend that tickles your senses and leaves you intoxicated by life.

“We wait, starving for moments of high magic to inspire us, but life is full of common enchantment waiting for our alchemists eyes to notice.” ~Jacob Nordby

The simplest of things can be the sweetest reminders and the greatest of divinely timed inspirations. And it is eternally present awaiting YOUR engaged presence.

“So, I said, when does the enchantment start? We were sitting side by side, facing the mountains. “It started when the earth was born.” Her eyes were closed. Her face was golden in the setting sun. “It never stops. It is, always. It’s just here.” ~Jerry Spinelli

But don’t just take my word for it….experience it for yourself. Start imagining life as you would like to experience it, start living as if it is already your experience, and be more mindful of each moment that is reflected to you. I may just be crazy, but I sure am creating a joyful reality. 😉

“When someone from Faerie ever tells you something, you can see it – you can feel it – you believe it. For the true value of enchantment and its glamour, is in the imparting of a truth – by truth’s own persuasion it makes itself real.” ~Gabriel Brunsdon

Enchantment by Valerie Dohren:

Enchantment steals my weary heart
When`er I see the golden dawn
Which so does set my soul aflame
That I should never be forlorn

To see the beauty in a smile
To feel such magic all around
Delights me with the sweetest joy
In every sight, in every sound

Enchantment plays upon the soul
To captivate, such charms convey
All heavens wonders that we see
Around us through each passing day

Enchantment be the stars that shine
Enchantment is the glowing moon
Enchantment in the twisting vine
Enchantment through the sun at noon

Enchantment be the rambling brook
Enchantment is the rolling sea
Enchantment in the eyes that look
Enchantment through the eyes that see
