I feel this one will speak to a lot of you right now.
May has flown by, but I’ve definitely been experiencing the contraction before expansion that Lee reflects here, and the full circle moments.
Which of the themes are coming up for you?
Yesterday brought Dawn and I back together since our last visit in Sedona over the Libra Full Moon, which is quite synchronously aligned with her arriving on the Libra New Moon now in October! She’s staying in the same RV park with her Miracle Bus (love the name and connection to our Magick Bus) that we did when we first arrived back to Tahoe last October, and while here I will be able to share some of our fav spots with her, as we explore this synchronous time together. It’s incredible how much has happened in both of our lives during just 6 months since we last touched in with each other and in looking at our photos from then, too, we have each shifted tons as well. I’ve never seen her looking more sparkly, vibrant, and beautiful, not to mention really anchored into her nature ever more so than now.
It is our third time in person in the years we’ve known each other, but first time getting to meet her sweet companion, Miracle, whom I have been connected with since the day she came home to Dawn. Dawn and I have been through a lot of similarities with our animal companions we have seen transition and have both aligned with experiences relating to the new magickal girls that have both come into our lives just months apart. It’s been beautiful sharing our families together and I’m grateful for all of the support and love she’s given during those transitioning times, but also for all of the giggly fun and understanding too.
Yesterday was our first touch-in, as the first few days were days of rebalance and recharge after her long journey here, while I have been immersed in all we have going on during these transitional times. That is also when huge winds of change blew in, as well as an enchanting day of snow to welcome her back to Tahoe. I was so excited for her to experience all this magick and felt Tahoe to be a perfect and nurturing place right now for her. This was her first time back to the area since somewhere between 30-35 years ago, so it’s pretty incredible to have her here now.
And this also aligned with our 9 year anniversary yesterday, which really was full circle and lovely to share with her and Miracle.
She shared the sweetest little gifts with me too – one of which had another full circle connection. It is this incredible little succulent called a Crassula Buddha’s Temple. I’ve never seen one like it and I fell in love right away. Dawn knows how much I love succulents and this one has a special connection, as it is from a nursery where she grew up and where she and her parents used to spend tons of time at when landscaping their home. It’s been there 98 years and she said it still looked so much the same.
I love the connection to her childhood through this sweet and sacred succulent, which will always remind me of the inner child and innocence she and I cherish and have no intentions of ever losing.
The other amazingly yummy gift was an organic artisan jam made of cardamon, pear, and rose petal. It is exquisite (I had it on a toasted bagel this morning) and reminded it me of this incredible lavender “honey” (a vegan version, of course) that Faery sis Laura made for me. And that’s super cool because it is because of Laura that Dawn and I connected (our shared Reiki Master Teacher) and we were even able to share some virtual hugs and kisses between all three of us yesterday on our day of meeting. More full circles!
Anyway, our first day together was perfect…and since the snow, the weather is incredible in the high 60’s in the day and cooling to 30’s at night. No winds and warm sun-shiney days filled with Autumn smells, sights, and colors for all the senses.
It was my first day back driving, as I went to pick her up wearing a regular boot on my foot for the first time since my fracture. I’m still being cautious when out doing any kind of hiking or long walks (wearing my healing boot), although I don’t anymore in the house and am basically healed. I just want to ensure a solid strength to it and allow another 2 weeks of babying it so that I’ll be good to go for Winter snow upcoming.
On my way to pick her up a big hawk flew over my car and that was a great sign since hawks are huge for both Dawn and I and have shown up at synchronous times between us. I then got to meet Miracle and the RV/bus that is named after her, which was delightful, as she is just as sweet as her mom and the Miracle Bus so reminded me of our Magick Bus and our times in it (not to mention my sweet Joy and Cosmo who shared the journey with us).
Dawn and Miracle are both loves and I was tickled by Miracle’s kisses and affection, as well as her gentleness. But she is a force for sure and carries both energies just like her mom.
We then went over to Zephyr Cove and walked along the lake and enjoyed the beauty and warmth, as we caught up and just took in the day. I decided I wanted to capture her and Miracle, as I knew they didn’t really have any photos together and the beauty of Tahoe was truly bringing out their essence. So an impromptu photo shoot continued for the day, each time I saw these incredible back drops and the way the energy was dancing with them. I LOVE the captures that resulted…My favorites of them so far!
We ended up seeing a rabbit on the trail – I hardly ever see wild rabbits here, so that was a cool sign of the little ones off planet excited for this reunion (Dawn has met both Joy and Cosmo and knows of Nestor well). Cosmo has been around even more than usual, which Dawn has been feeling too so this felt connected to him for sure.
We also continued through the day seeing so many squirrels, chipmunks, and ducks that Miracle was enthralled with.
After, we headed to go pick up Dave, but stopped at our new home so I could share it with her and Miracle. That was really special for her to be a part of the celebration of new there and to have her share her feelings of it, while seeing it in the before stage. Such a blessing to have their energy infused into our new home.
Then we got Dave and set off for Taylor Creek to see the salmon.
We got there just after sunset and walked the Rainbow Trail, which was mystical and mysterious, reminding us of Sleepy Hollow or something out of the Lord of the Rings.
I was so happy she got to see the salmon, as that felt like great energy at this time. And while there, more ducks glided across the creek, geese honked away as they flew by, and a heron that didn’t want us to miss it, kept doing fly by’s and landed in a tree across from us. He also saw us back to our car, as we finished gazing at the moon. The second photo below captures the heron flying across the other side of the creek before it came to land in a high branch of a tree.
So much great energy and medicine.
There was even a picture-perfect sight of the sliver of moon just over Mt. Tallac that I was able to capture. It’s above Dawn and Miracle in this first photo, but didn’t show up with the lighting until I took it again with just the landscape (seen in the second photo).
So magickal and full of yes, “miracles”.
We then headed to this newer restaurant, Aleworx in South Lake Tahoe for vegan pizza and to catch the end of the Autumn Carnival. It was perfect because a quieter, side table opened just for us and we arrived just in time to watch the fire dancers. That seemed like great energy to balance things out, especially with a lot of Water energy that had been around for Dawn and with lots of Earthing and Air energy also having been experienced in the days, and today, leading up to this.
A perfect full day of blessings all around.
So grateful for this time that has aligned to be with Dawn and Miracle and I look forward to more over the next few days while she’s here soaking in the Tahoe vibes, as well as her meeting Astrid for the first time in person (although they are connected already just as I’ve been with Miracle).
Lake Tahoe looks good on both of them!! Love seeing them glow and love having some Faery fun in the midst of all the managing, remodeling, hands-on labor I’ve been doing at the condo, foot healing, and editing here and there while I can. It truly helps bring balance to life, which is what Libra energy is all about.
Thank you Dawn and Miracle for bringing your joy and love to Tahoe and helping to create extra nourishing and balancing nature immersions in the mix! It’s so much fun to giggle away with you both while also walking in honor of the sacredness around us.
I look forward to the adventures of the week and what reflections will be revealed along the way.
