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.

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
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.
Hope is the pause, presence, and passion that assists you to align with opportunity in divine timing.
I couldn’t not share these, as I’m just so giddy with delight over them, but I did wait until after returning from a short hike this breakfast fueled, and lunch enjoyment after.
This morning was such a celebratory time and the more I support myself with the things I need and want, the more life reflects the same.
I’m receiving some huge confirmations that are clearing and easing the way for me to do what I know I want to be doing and focused on right now.
And that equates to a happier and lighter me, who then is flying around doing everything with joy.
That joy wanted through this morning in the form of creative cooking, which turned into these nature-emulating, and my love for nature-inspired, pancakes. (And yes, I’d be more than happy to make some for anyone who joins me on a private retreat too)
Be it the expansive, limitless horizon of the Pacific Ocean in front of me, the reinvigoration of getting this adventure rolling, or simply letting the energy expand from the little seed planted by my friend Lynne who said “make me a tree pancake” when I mentioned pancakes were on the menu this morning, I began my day off by taking the first half off to just bask in the light of imagination, nurturing, nature, and slowing down.
And this is what unfolded from there (the photos you see throughout), after this morning’s sunrise with Cosmo.
Following the flow of energy I felt wanting through will now support the flow of work I’m putting full focus on after this quick share, now that I feel balanced.
I’m feeling like I’m going to get a lot accomplished this week by continuing in this vein.
It’s an inspiring day on the Magick Bus and I’m helping to sprinkle the magick, immersion, and fun to each of you, as everything I do is always mindful of its trickle effect for the collective.
That’s why I feel it so important to channel the clearest flow of energies we’re each about, as much as possible.
Creativity, imagination, innocence, passion, and play are some of the things I cherish and can help others with opening those portal of experiences too!
Give yourself permission to play and find creative ways to integrate that into your day no matter what’s going on!
The smallest things can make all the difference!
Imagine what a little tree or bunny pancake could do for you. 🙂
It sure tickled the rest of my day, infusing this joyful lightness as I created them, ignited a playfulness for my day, inspired taking a hike that was invigorating and helped move energy, and opened the portal of creativity I now need for my painting project.
The visions are pouring through with ease and when this happens the process will be flowing, quick, and easy – cutting work time because I’m in the zone – which means more play time available!
When I let life flow through me, my life then flows.
Please let life pour through you.
“The Indian philospher J. Krishnamurti once remarked that observing without evaluating is the highest form of human intelligence. When I first read this statement, the thought, ‘What nonsense!’ shot through my mind before I realized that I had just made an evaluation.” ~Marshall Rosenberg
I am a constant observer of life, of consciousness, of everything in and around me. It’s something that came very naturally to me from the onset, as an introvert. Perhaps many of you can relate.
Although I was always very quiet, I was actively very present and it wasn’t the kind of quiet that disappeared and shriveled back into the corner of a room, but a quiet that held a strong presence because I was fully engaged with everything and everyone around me, just not engaged in speaking much.
I was observing and listening, which continues to be my preferred experience of life.
So people were still very aware of me and actually to the degree where they would think I said things, when I simply was standing in my own energy, energetically conveying more than words alone can.
Of course that changed over time to involve more speaking, and communicative engaging, hence my stepping into a guidance/teaching role, but that constant observer has only increased over the years and I still would consider myself quiet, speaking only when the energy and experience moves me to.
The last few years has increased this observational experience for me and lately I’ve noted that I’m doing it 100% of the time in a heightened way. It’s not something I tell myself I’m going to do, or that I need to do…it simply just happens.
Observing, to me, is being very present, paying attention, watching, listening, and feeling all that is going on, on and under the surface, and doing it all without attachment or need to judge and evaluate what’s being seen in those moments of observing. It’s just really about opening to the experience of what is going on without interference.
And I find that when I truly am in that place of unattached observing, it expands my experience to such a degree that I then shift into the multi-dimensional me and it completely alters my reality.
I’ll then continue by exploring this and open to the unlimited potentials of perspectives, as well as feel into how things make me feel, what gets brought up from the other parts of me, and allow myself to go into each part to see what truly aligns with the nature of who I know myself to be as an expression of Source and with the experience I am moving into.
I felt called to bring this up, as lately while I’m moving into a new experience of myself, things around me have been calling my attention to observe very deeply, which includes the messages I see and hear that people are sharing and promoting, how others, especially prominent figures, are engaging their current roles, and keeping an eye on the wave of positioned dynamics along the spectrum of shifts taking place.
I experience what I feel it to be telling me about where things are headed collectively and since everyone is a reflection of me, especially so if there are people directly in my experience I’m experiencing regularly, how what they are expressing aligns or not with the experience I’m feeling led to transmute into. At the same time, feeling into any triggers and what those have as message for me…much of the time I find it teaching me to go deeper into my observation and to remain unattached and unconditional, and also reiterates to me what my personal role and path is in response to what these represent.
I feel for the shared undercurrents and I feel for the diverging streams.
I listen to the messages that even may have one time been my own, and how the now calls for expanded creative evolution.
“People’s minds are changed through observation and not through argument.” ~Will Rogers
So I will use everything/one as gauges to what I do and don’t feel to be personally resonating with the current energy frequency I feel in my experience, so that I may then find the gifts within all of that to both weed and seed.
I find that takes place a lot within the realm of the more spiritually focused, “new-agers”, yet I’m always observing all, as integration of everything is key to me.
That includes nature, animals, weather, events, people, emotions…you name it.
In some ways I feel this particular realm has come into the spotlight a lot because I’ve sensed the complacency of it, feeling that a destination has been reached when there is no actual end, and also expansion into more of the same keeps happening – just wearing different clothing.
It’s a realm I had also felt very comfortable in for a time, but feel I personally need new clothing, as the ones I had (quite literally and symbolically, as I’m getting rid of my actual wardrobe for my upcoming move) don’t “fit” me anymore.
I also feel the tension of duality, where more has not been realized possible.
It is the realization of that more, the incredible connection to imagination, that fuels my heart.
And perhaps that is simply my own journey and experience, but all I can share is MY own experience.
So, I remain an observer, riding the waves of consciousness, knowing that many of my ideas and feelings don’t sit well with the human heart and mind all of the time, but that has become a peaceful place to be for me now.
No longer do I feel isolated, alone, disheartened, or swayed by this, as it would have affected me in the past.
It’s part of the reason for my taking three personal months off, after having gathered much through observation, coming to understand what messages and energies I do and don’t resonate with, what I do and don’t feel is right for me in how to be and show up in life, or even how I share myself with others, and listening to the guidance that now is the time to turn that observation inward ever more so.
One can end up going so deeply within that you emerge without – in a new reality.
So observing includes being an observer of myself always (which is why I usually have several voices of dialogue in my head at any given time), and realizing always that I want to pave my own way where the only gauge is the presence of observation to All That Is within the truth of me.
I’ve realized that when everyone seems to be getting on a particular bandwagon (which I’m seeing much of), that’s indication, if I haven’t already, to get off the bandwagon.
Amidst my fulls days, I’ve managed to carve out time in between my work during little breaks to nourish my creative juices. I’ve been wanting to do this little project now for months, and I’m glad I waited, as my original vision shifted and turned into something better….at least I think so. 😉
I’ve found that the few minutes of imagination and fun to break up the day have added a spark to things energetically, as well as have kept me balanced.
Balance is always the key I am focused on creating in my life, one way or another, as I have a history of going overboard with things since I have an unusually inhuman level of endurance. So, I love to switch things up to amuse and nurture my eclectically diverse needs, finding ways to constantly keep all parts of me engaged and happy, as well as support my overall well-being without any blow-outs and breakdowns.
I’m happy to say, I’ve been successful with this now consistently, after learning my processes and knowing myself most intimately. It took years, but now I’m building years under my belt of harmony and balance.
Anyway, my project consisted of creating some ocean-inspired pieces infused with the amazing energy of seashells and sea treasures I’ve collected over the last few years on my journeys to energetically powerful spots on the globe, both near and far.
I highly recommend you nurture whatever little creative nudges are tapping on your shoulder, as it will do you A LOT of good!
Don’t judge what wants through either! Just let yourself create without hindering how that needs to look or what others might think of it. It’s all about playing and having fun!
I know I was definitely enjoying tapping into my inner mermaid for this project and of course the Pisces me was in her watery bliss. 🙂
I had so much fun creating these pieces and wanted to share them with you. They were made in spurts here and there between my days, and because it was a delicate operation of placing things just so, while affixing them and having to prop things and keep things in place while they dried, it was a creative challenge that also benefited stretching and exercising both my right and left brain – again helping to balance within the process of the project itself, while balancing my day as well.
I hope you enjoy the photos of these whimsical pieces, which include an antiqued watering can (just love this piece that has 10 small seashells framing the handle and 3 seashells on the scroll work behind the spout), a water pitcher (such an elegant and watery beauty!), and two vases – one of which I decorated on the outside (such wonderful Earthy colors and richness) and the other I one-by-one hand-placed each sea treasure in a sturdy stacked column that not only showcases each unique piece, but holds strong and in place (an enchanted collection of magickal energy).
It’s amazing, but not surprising, how I had exactly the right pieces for everything and also in cases where I was reflecting a mirror image on two sides…ended up having mirroring pieces and only the right amount of each! The photos don’t do justice to the colors, detailing, and shine of many of the mother of pearl luminous pieces.
I don’t know what I’m doing with all of them yet, I just know I was to create these mermaid treasures and I’ll let intuition, inspiration, and guidance lead the way on the rest. I only know that one is a special birthday gift for a special someone…another might be part of a wedding gift…but we’ll see what Spirit has in store.
I couldn’t NOT post this beautiful image that a friend sent me saying she thought of me right away when she saw it. I’d say she knows me quite well, as if this image isn’t me, I don’t know what is.
I get lost, or rather, I find myself in the magick, innocence, inspiration, enchantment, ethereal mystery, and love it conveys. It reminds me of my time in Iceland and of so many elements of life and creation I hold dear.
I could write a story about all the things this image brings up and ignites within me.
But instead, I thought I would share it, as it just twinkles with magick and invokes a sense of wonder and imagination. Powerful things for us to cultivate in our lives in order to harness our creative alchemy into manifestation of being.
Don’t stop believing. And DO start living as if everything is a miracle, because it IS and so are YOU.
