We often take for granted the things right before our eyes and even the things we’ve experienced in feeling because we are focused on achieving or racing against time. And quickly the incredible moments, people, and experiences disappear without our acknowledgement and without truly receiving what they have to share that can enrich our lives.
When you wake in the morning or before you go to bed perhaps you can reflect on those things and leave the rest for a few minutes, as it will still be there when you’re done, however the rest may not.
And along your day try raising your eyes to the sky, turning to your left or right to really see who and what’s besides you, or pay attention to your footsteps and how you are walking through life on your way to the next to-do on your list.
What are you missing today?
Your child’s desire for a hug or to know you more?
Your partner’s need for you to see or hear them?
Your animal companion’s pain they’ve taken on to help relieve your stress and get you to pay attention to what you’re neglecting?
How beautifully unassuming someone or something looks because they are unaware of their light shining through?
How nature has miracles to give you each day to help inspire and guide?
How incredible you are but never noticed the richness of what makes you you?
How amazing it is that you are breathing and have a choice every moment as to how you want to experience it and what you can do right now to make a difference?
Please don’t walk through life without ever knowing what it means to be living.
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.
Be as You Truly Are ~ You Haven’t Lost Your Passion or Path, You Simply Can Choose to Dance & Sing Again
A little feather mandala with 11 that I found yesterday, encircling an orange calcite heart for New Moon in Aries … Stirring the fire within to unleash your most transformative expression that wisely harnesses your creative and courageous spark of truest nature and embodiment.
One might ask themselves:
How can I create more balance and harmony in the giving and receiving of energy?
What values call to my heart most?
Do I experience frustration due to unrecognized opportunity, limiting perspective, and lack of self love?
There is potential for more integrity of self-expression and recognizing your natural beingness as you truly ARE.
I recently had a dream about a small magickal creature I was given from the Netherlands and it rested in my hands and then gave me a bite on my fingers, although without the intent to hurt and it didn’t, nor did it bleed, but I knew it was getting my attention. There isn’t a creature that looks just like what I saw in the dream, but the word pygmy and vole came to mind…I did discover there are pygmy shrews and field voles in the Netherlands.
I’ve made several connections to the entirety of the dream for myself and the connections of awareness it drew me too, but also while later looking into this animal’s symbolism, I was struck by something I read about vole that coincides with this New Moon energy and felt to share it too for the collective.
It shared how vole teaches about awareness to what is going on all around you with both sensitivity and alertness, but also simply teaches about expressing your nature, naturally, which comes through feeling and listening to your intuition with loving trust.
They also carry an energy and growth potential in embracing the learning around nature’s expression of both destruction and rebirth. So in essence, asking you to look at what needs to change or that you feel could use shifting in your life and then by listening you’ll be shown how to harness those changes with vole’s help.
And synchronous to my dream, voles teach us how to “sink our teeth into” the things we’re wanting to create…in essence showing us how to harness the visions and ideas with creative tenacity so we can make them productive and actualized.
There is so much angst and frustration out there around worrying about not being on path, searching, yearning, seeking out guidance to what exactly you “should” be doing, holding onto the belief there must be some idealized version and bigness around an end result of what this looks like, and coming up short on these expectations placed on it all by self and the messaging out there.
Interestingly, at the same time you worry and search, you are also avoiding the feelings inside, your intuitive messaging, those subtle or sometimes loud nudges, are self-sabotaging with conditioned beliefs, ingenious inner dialogue, and avoidance tactics, or even creating every obstacle and energy drain on yourself, otherwise.
Yet, what it boils down to is a need to surrender to what IS right now.
Who you ARE this moment.
The intelligence within you ALREADY.
You miss the opportunities every moment to just be YOU and bring through the creative vitality that stirs within your spirit and heart.
There isn’t a perfect outcome you need to strive for.
You simply need to choose to walk in the frequency of your vibration right now and how ever that leads you, IS exactly what you are here to do.
Don’t wait for some perfect answer or precise conclusion to your quest.
Give up the quest and realize the truth of your journey that is a step-by-step unfolding of you being you.
The more in touch we are with our feelings and the voice within, the more we know exactly what it is in each moment that would be the best possible use of our breath here on Earth. And that may be much more simple than you were led to believe, although without devising it, could very well turn into something much bigger.
But don’t judge what is and isn’t extraordinary or how if you only do “this,” you aren’t doing enough.
If you truly are embracing your spirit’s song and commit to expressing its voice in each experience you have, then you will come to experience the peace and harmony you seek…the next notes will become clear…and naturally you’ll have a symphony at work with your instrument in sync with the the collective orchestra.
I find that people create inertia because they dwell too much on the ideas rather than the feelings moving through. I’ve been there too.
You have and always will be messaged by your inner voice to where would most be in resonance and alignment to your vibrational expression.
We simply don’t listen and listening, nurturing, and supporting that voice is more key than how things need to look, as when we cultivate that, we naturally will be doing and being our best possible version in each ever-expanding and evolving moment.
So it won’t be about what big thing you “should” be doing, but truly about embodying your own bigness through being.
The less we listen and support that innate knowingness, is where we come up against the challenges.
And that inner voice will tell us when making changes would be much more supportive to our life and everyone’s lives we touch.
I recently went through this in a big way, myself, before we went on our Magick Bus journey and made the changes that were key to my spirit’s expression in order to thrive here or elsewhere.
If you feel a loss of passion, it’s not because you don’t have any or you need to discover your passion, you simply need to tune back into you, as somewhere along the line a door was closed on your feelings and the connection and love didn’t receive the nurturing that other things instead did. The nature of you doesn’t go away, it simply awaits remembering and dancing with once again.
And yes, that does become important, if in fact you desire to live from that purity of your natural vitality more and find yourself frustrated and tormented all the time.
Loss of passion may also speak to your completing a cycle on your spiral of life and rather than continuing to repeat patterns that keep you stuck, or drag you backwards like a whirpool, you simply need to get on the next spiral and create anew, integrating ingredients to bring forth continual alchemy of being.
Take an honest, deep, intimately vulnerable look within yourself and ask the really important questions. You’ll discover what the true “block” is to your having the very thing you say you desire…or in essence, to being more of who you really ARE.
It’s a very interesting journey we experience in our lives.
No right or wrong, nor timeframe. However, if you are feeling miserable or frustrated, that may very well be indication to try another way.
When we more actively engage ourselves as the truly empowered partners in co-creation, we can discover how to work with the alchemy latent within each of us to create.
How things evolve will be a beautiful spiraling of your nature unfolding her or his exquisite petals.
If you are feeling a squeeze on yourself, uninvigorated, and like you are suffocating, or ready to burst, then your spirit is messaging you to go bigger, expand, express, bring forth and wisely channel what is burning within.
If uninspired, this is your chance to choose to recreate yourself and do something that moves you, feels invigorating, and keeps your imagination and creativity engaged. Start inviting and bringing forth new elements to your life that stimulate newness and fresh perspectives to keep you thriving and challenge you to go beyond yesterday’s ideas and version of yourself.
That doesn’t always mean it has to be a huge outward change, but may simply be about inviting more of the little tweaks and perspectives to your current experience that inspire a natural unfolding from there.
You have the ability to choose completely new right now and to create something different, something more, but ultimately more you this moment.
This doesn’t need to be a do or die situation, but about really feeding your spirit’s song without any constraints on should’s and should not’s, nor about following patterns…but carving a new way that is more resonant aligned to you in the flow of energy streaming through that is simultaneously abound.
I feel that as long as we continue to touch in with ourselves, invite, and put into action ways to challenge ourselves to expand our capacity for creative expression and move into new areas of personal passion moving through us with expanding courage, we will find our lives enriched and continuing to unfold in amazing ways.
You are an intuitive being whether you think you are, or not.
When you reteach yourself to trust what you’re feeling and relax into a more peaceful state of presence, then you can be more mindful, discerning, and understanding of how to navigate the energy streams in healthy partnership of heart and mind where unnecessary risks, but invigorating challenge will meet in your always being exactly where your spirit desires.
Since many of you may be like myself right now, engaged in, beginning, or thinking about jumping into new projects, shifting gears with life path focuses, channeling creations, and manifesting dreams, I thought to share a perspective and change that I’ve implemented into my life that has made a difference for me. It has to do with talking about the specifics and communicating to others the details around these things you’re engaged in and focusing energy and time on. While I’m a BIG communicator and LOVE to share, I’ve discovered that the less I talk about and share details pertaining to my current work, focuses, and plans, the more energy, enthusiasm, motivation, and inspiration I have to channel into them.
Science shares that humans are social animals, which lends good reason to why we like to talk a lot and that communication is actually programmed into us as a conditioned tool and way to thrive, and in effect, survive.
I’d add that on another level, we also tend to talk a lot when we’re unsure of things, lack confidence, are nervous, need an ego boost, or even to avoid having to actually “do” what we’re talking about. We can make it seem like we’re doing a lot when we engage in talking about all the details and plans, but then when it comes down to it, are not actually doing much at all.
I’ve generally always been one to share everything with others in my past, whether friends, family, loved ones, as a way to share my excitement, but then found myself shifting gears because I change so much, and others maybe thinking I was flaky because of this. Or, doing just as I shared above, wanting others to share in the excitement, perhaps even unconsciously engaging them to voice their concerns or doubts because I had fears around the things myself – so in this case projecting them to be voiced back at me.
But what I’ve discovered and implemented in most of my life across the board with how I approach everything now is with greater silence.
Silence is a source of power without need to explain, defend, or have its ego rubbed. I find it a great source of inner trust for myself and what I feel in my heart, and yes, a way to maintain the integrity of, and fuel for, my passion.
Stephen King wrote a memoir once on writing, but what he shared I feel pertains to anything we are passionately engaging in our lives.
He said something to the effect of if you talk about what you’re writing too much, it will diminish your enthusiasm about it. You lose your motivation to actually write it, by talking about it.
I feel this applies to things and projects in general, including talking too much about your plans with things. It diminishes your need to actually follow through, like it’s already been done by energetically discussing it in length and feeling satisfied from that, rather than the actual application of the plans and ideas.
To keep things fresh and in your mind, while retaining motivation to actually “do” the things, you may find it supportive to focus on them within your own experience, without the need to express it out there.
That doesn’t take away from the communicating within yourself, with your spirit guides, and magickal support system, nor does it mean to stop creative visualization, intentions, and things like vision boarding, brainstorming, inner exploration, etc.
It also doesn’t mean that some form of feedback can be helpful with things including hearing ourselves talk about it (although the latter I’ve found to be more effective when I talk it out loud to myself or run through the dialogue and scenarios in my own mind), but then it’s about choosing an effective channel for that that truly is about receiving helpful reflections and food for thought you may not be able to see or come up with because of your current focus, rather than simply about a need to talk as a form of using up your creative spark and energy that is being misdirected.
But there does seem to be something diminishing and extracting about external communicating, especially when in overdrive and as an unrealized self-sabotaging mechanism to avoid actually doing the thing or hiding the fears you have around it that aren’t being addressed.
And there does seem to be something about saving up that excitement like the voluptuous and pregnant Empress in the Tarot, who is fertile with creative abundance, ready to lavish it into streams and channels of focused passion.
So, the next time you have this urge to explain and express all the details of what is moving through you to create, try funneling that urge into the creation itself and you may find your inspiration and flow, not to mention your drive, that much more vital and fresh, and your intuition enhanced by your confidence and trust.
Just a short message, as we plan to spend a quiet evening of self-nurturing to ring in and anchor the New Year intentfully in our magickal sanctuary space. Today, before sharing a delicious lunch at Simple Bliss Vegan Cafe here in South Lake Tahoe and enjoying a hike where I brought this magickal snowrabbit faery to life (my first full snowman ever made – of course it’s a bunny), we had some great news come in that we were waiting on – oh the divine timing on this last day of 2016! News upcoming.
But for now, this:
What ever you desire. Do it.
What you’re tired of. Release it.
What you don’t want more of. Stop focusing on it.
What you hide from or repress. Embrace, honor, and have unconditional compassion for.
What you’re afraid of. Take one gentle step toward.
What you don’t love about yourself. Love it anyway.
What you think you lack. You don’t.
What you compare about yourself to others. Stop it.
What you admire in others. You have within yourself.
Who you think you are. You’re more than.
Everything you tell yourself has to be a certain way before you can have or do what you want. It’s not true.
Don’t give up.
I love you.
Warmest wishes and magickal blessings for an inspired, transformative, creative, and expansive 2017 to all of you!
On the eve of September 30th’s rare New “Black” Moon, this musical expression seeding a new field of experience was inspired while stationed on the edge of farm fields in Big Springs, Nebraska. With the assistance of my Cosmic Golden Selenite Flower a sound channeling came through … creative storytelling through harmonic resonance.
It felt like no coincidence, once again, that days earlier I had been guided to bring home a new crystal friend – a small, but potent Black Moonstone. It was the only crystal that spoke to me, as we wandered through a metaphysical shop on the Saturday after Equinox.
At that time I was not aware that we were approaching a rare New “Black” Moon, which would complete the month’s cycle of powerful shifts. And I didn’t know about all of the Black Moonstone’s properties. I just knew it really resonated and spoke to me.
But I did immediately connect with the Black Moonstone’s properties with a big “a-ha!” when learning more and of course the synchronicity of it having an extra focus of New Moon energy for beginnings of all things.
Black Moonstone embodies the space from which all things new emerge and are created from. It is very protective, deflects unwanted energies, encourages inspiration, helps remove blockages for past trauma healing and profoundly deep emotional connection/expression, enhances intuition and inner knowing to bring you under guidance of your feelings rather than be led by intellectual reasoning.
They are crystals of the deep Divine Feminine energies and powerful Shadow workers that aid bringing you in touch with your Root Chakra to connect down to Earth with the calming and grounding they exude.
Balance and cleansing are also part of their supportive energies and work powerfully during dreamtime.
Along with Root Chakra work they assist with the Throat, Third Eye, and Crown Chakras as well, assisting creative self expression and psychic gifts.
Some, like the one I have, also have Peach Moonstone embodied within the stone, which adds the Sacral Chakra connection and will help enhance emotional work, give your creativity a super boost, and supercharge the birthing of new ideas and creations.
They also are excellent for aiding the flow of synchronicity in your life.
I slept with my Black Moonstone under my pillow during the period surrounding and on the night of the Black Moon and continue working with it closely at my side because of its “synchronous” energies to all I am focused on.
Here’s the sound channeling encapsulating the energies flowing through the eve of the Black Moon Rising.
I hope it inspires and supports the energies shared above, within your own experience.
When we reached the top of Watchman Trail in Zion National Park, I felt a sudden inspiration bubble up from within wanting through as a song.
This is a snippet of what Nature’s vista all around me, the majestic peaks in front of me, and what I was feeling, gently brought forth.
The short sound channeling of the organic song within my heart that I just allowed to flow as it wanted, suddenly called up the wind in a major way.
The whole time on the trail there had been no wind or just gentle canyon breezes, but suddenly with great force a huge gust came through stirring up the sandstone, as I sang, mirroring the power of the heart when we express it.
This wind stopped when I stopped singing and did not return until later when I was asking for a sign on an inspired idea that came to me.
This is the video I mentioned in yesterday’s post that I finally had time to listen to and get up on my YouTube Channel.
More sound channeling to come.
Yesterday, while in the mountains of Big Bear, an evening walk by the lake beckoned. It was a couple of hours before sunset so the light was beautifully aglow, casting golden harmony on everything in sight. This is my favorite area of the lake with meadows of Faery delight and beautiful trees galore.
The Faery me absolutely fell in love with this one field and literally got lost in its magick. I could have stayed in it endlessly. It consumed all of my senses and my tactile ones fell in love with the feathery softness moving through my fingers and hands.
Everything was so alive, rich, and casting sacred spells of enchantment.
I also came upon the largest dandelions I’d ever seen, with sacred geometry puffs of fragile pureness that were three inches in diameter. Of course I stopped to make a wish, blowing the dream seeds completely off in one big breath.
Between the size of these dandelions and my perspective from sitting down amidst the fields of golden green whispers, I felt both diminished to my Faery size and expanded to my Faery heart.
For what ever reason, these are some of my most favorite photos I’ve taken that I was guided to photograph, to have these images to reflect on time and again. I am told they will inspire the new creative channelings coming through, since they are so essence-aligned for me.
I decided to share them.
Perhaps it was an experience only moving for me, reminding me of a place that exists in another reality of mine.
But perhaps the photos give you a glimpse of what is seen through my eyes and you, too, can get lost in the magick and inspiration.
These photos are of the field and dandelion that completely had me enraptured. The last photo was the only one I took of the lake and another field that I discovered a rainbow beam appear in when I got home – more evidence that magick was afoot and I’d entered the Faery realm and home.
Then take a deep breath to embrace the new, releasing with ease everything before this moment on exhale.
Sunsets remind us of that renewing and releasing in the moments that take our breath away.
“We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.” ~Jawaharlal Nehru
Inspiring sunset images are from last evening while watching an outdoor production of Antony and Cleopatra by the Kingsmen Shakespeare Company. It was such an amazing and shifting sky.
Perfect for what I feel brewing inside myself, and many of us, and all that is incubating for passionate release.
The first feeling that ran through me when Cnawan Fahey of http://etherealnature.com/ contacted me to share that he had nominated me for a “Most Influential Blogger Award” was surprise-with-a-smile-in-my-heart.
I was so moved to be acknowledged by such a mystical soul who explores the layers and artistically weaves a connection through the natural and visionary worlds. We have only recently connected and yet I’ve enjoyed his insightful and reflective posts very much.
Like I think many bloggers do, I share from my heart the things that inspire me, along with perspectives and experiences that perhaps might inspire, or at the least, create cause to reflect. It is a labor of love I devote daily to and so to be recognized as such is a humbling honor for which I am grateful.
My then immediate response to Cnawan after the feeling that first arose, besides a really touched “thank you” was, “I had no idea there was such a thing! lol”
While I consistently blog, I am likely not as “up” on things in the blog world as others are, not to mention have limited time to explore, so this was indeed a welcome surprise.
Thank you Cnawan dearly for this recognition. Coming from you, it means that much more.
And what is an extra added fun goody from this is that my Faery/soul sister, Laura Bruno, also received recognition and nomination from Cnawan. There’s a magickal little triad of energy between us, as it was through Laura’s blog that I first connected to Cnawan and then he and I connected, and now it’s this fun energy that I feel present from, and in, a realm beyond this realm. 🙂
And with that I guess the fun continues, as what comes along with accepting this very sweet honor is, as Laura put it, “some kooky instructions“. One of which includes my having to share a current favorite song and the other which includes nominating my own list of 10 deserving bloggers.
But before I share all of that I, with soul sister synchronicity comes some shared feelings, so I have will also have to reiterate two other things that Laura shared.
One of which is the very cool thing that Cnawan shared in his blog where he nominated us, which was this:
“5. http://laurabruno.wordpress.com Laura’s blog is a wonderful blend of all things spiritual. One is always uplifted by spending some time reading her posts.”
“6. https://taniamarieartist.wordpress.com Tania is another wonderful spiritual blogger who posts lots of great info, and, as it turns out, is a good friend of Laura’s. Amidst all of us blogging from far-flung corners of who knows where, it’s just kinda cool knowing that these two gifted women are friends in the world outside of the blogosphere.”
The second thing is that my own 10 nominations will most definitely need to include both Laura and Cnawan too, just as she felt resonance in including both Cnawan and myself. Since the rules don’t share anything about needing to list different ones (from what I can see), they just have to be on there for me as well.
Unfortunately, with limited time as mentioned, I don’t get to peruse blogs and the world wide web in general, as much as many others may, so I KNOW I’m not exposed to the ton of other amazing bloggers and info out there that I could be. And so many times I see something amazing, but I forget to make note of it and so it simply passes through my experience, not without leaving me touched for the better. So, know that I acknowledge you all, including anyone not mentioned here that I may interact with. I never liked these kinds of things where we have to limit to a certain number, as we live in a limitless Universe.
That said, I also believe what comes across my experience is what is “meant to” and is “perfect”.
And these 10 on my list are nothing short than amazing in their own unique ways. I’m grateful and the better for their contributions from the heart.
So, in no particular order, here are my 10 nominations including both Laura and Cnawan:
1. http://laurabruno.wordpress.com/ -You’ve seen me repost many a blog from Laura Bruno because she is speaking her truth, helping to lift the veils, and providing insightful perspectives that take you deep and make you think – not to mention is providing a lot of nature, creativity, fun, and faery energy to each day (all things that I love).
2. http://etherealnature.com/ – And Cnawan Fahey, as shared, is a dear mystic whom I can feel his heart on his sleeve and his creative energy exuding from all that he shares so deep and beautifully, even through his photo – another creative visionary seeding a return to natural harmony, as he too, helps us to explore the layers.
3. http://annabelruffell.wordpress.com/ – Annabel Ruffell is the founder of Journey for Earth, as well as an artist and compassionate blogger. The depth of her heart and compassion is felt in everything she touches. She shares informative articles and links on topics relating to animals, the environment, humanity, health and food, being vegan, as well as inspiring interviews with people that are making a difference and passionately living their life journey with commitment to making a positive impact on our planet. I love her interviews especially, as they provide an insight into how other visionaries out there have moved through challenges and have been able to create the life they dreamed.
4. http://mommymystic.wordpress.com/ – Lisa Erickson has a really beautiful, wonderful, and insightful blog that focuses on the Sacred and Divine Feminine. Her blog also just has a plethora of information to support a spiritual journey and uncovering the mystic within us each. Really great blog and Lisa is very knowledgeable and thorough in all that she shares.
5. http://siannaphey.wordpress.com/ – Siannaphey/Njari Johnson is such an amazingly loving, magickal, and courageous soul. Her blog just speaks clear, loving energy and she shares such wonderful and supportive information for the healer within us all.
6. http://meatonomics.com/ – Dave Simon is an author, lawyer and compassionate advocate for sustainable consumption. His articles are thorough, well-researched, and eye-opening shockers that reveal what is really behind the food you eat, how food choices are being manipulated and controlled, and how you can make conscious choices that will not only enhance your life, but the life of everyone, the animals, and the planet at large.
7. http://honkifyourevegan.com/ – I love Celeste DiMilla’s blog. She’s a down-to-earth, quirky, straight-forward, and compassionate gal. I’ve actually met Celeste in person, as well, as she lives not far from where I do and we share a vegan lifestyle that sees us at mutual events some times. Her blog is really insightful and supportive to anyone considering going vegan, wants to know more about what being vegan is, would like to learn about this compassionate lifestyle, and who loves to learn new recipes. Plus, you can do this all while enjoying some of Celeste’s personal journey with everything. Whether you are vegan or not you will, like myself, LOVE the recipes she posts, as they are capital Y-U-M-M-Y. I have found a ton of great stuff from her blog that have been huge hits in my life with the people I love.
8. http://wytchymystique.com/ – I only just found Amythyst Raine-Hatayama, but she had me at “Magickal Connections” and her “wytchymystique” web address. This is a woman who has a love for many shared passions and in perusing her posts I’ve been enjoying her mystical musings greatly. For anyone who loves the esoteric, Pagan ritual, Crystal, Herb, and Elemental Magick, Earth Mother/Goddess energy and loves to learn about the Tarot and then some, you can explore your inner “witch” with Amythyst in her Magickal realm. Looking forward to reading more from her.
9. http://virgomagic.com/ – (another shared choice I have with Laura) I’ve so enjoyed Emily’s posts since Laura pointed me her way. Her blog is visually visionary, set on a backdrop of the Pleiades, which perfectly suits her insights to the stars she offers through her succinct and on-point astrological reflections. She has a way with words and clarity for easy understanding, while being taken on an artistic journey simultaneously.
10. http://serenereflection.wordpress.com/ – Sangeeta Bhagwat is poetic and insightful with her posts that speak to the breadth of personal experience and knowledge she has attained from her journey. Very supportive and insightful shares that resonate for me.
I am grateful to each of you for your dedication of heart to the passions that move and guide you daily. Your willingness to voice yourselves, your truth, and actively create from the uniqueness within each of you truly is an inspiration and gift. If you choose to accept my nomination the rules that have been passed through to each of us can be found below.
But first, as part of my last honoring of the rules, I will post my song. They share it should be a “current favorite song”. For me, as you may all know, I love music and am moved by the moment. So that can be a tough one to choose a favorite. However, I will say that this particular song I have been playing daily (it’s been with me for several years) and it seems to embody the “now” of my experience in the most all-encompassing and resonating ways. It is a dear favorite of mine and has a special connection to my beloved Nestor as well. I have posted it once before, but here it is again. My song is one without words, as for me it is the essence within the music that moves me to my own vision and experience that I cherish most. And this is one that takes me deep within the nature of me, which connects to the heart of Earth and Beyond.
The rules I received and pass down are as follows:
1. Display the Award on your Blog
