I’ve been feeling so in my element here in Australia and grateful to have found another heart home. Such a special and magickal place for sure. As mentioned, I’ve not had any transition difficulty with the time and day difference, no jet lag, no issue with the driving on opposite side I’m used to (I’ve been doing all the long distance driving here on our journey up the east coast), and feel completely invigorated and inspired, not to mention, nurtured by the land, animals, warm people, and yes the yummy food.
Also as shared, I’m just posting some short updates to give you a glimpse into things, but if you’re on Instagram, I’ve been posting a plethora of photos to give everyone a full idea of what it’s like here in all ways (these photos reshared to Facebook as well). I like to provide insight to places in ways you might not experience, for those who may never get to travel or who are interested in traveling and may find resonance to inspire you to follow that dream.
I find sharing on Instagram to be easy and quick, without intruding upon my time and can be done easily when I have some down time. This is why I’m not sharing a huge blog post on this journey, but snippets when I have the time, along the way…like today. I have some time in the mornings here and there while Dave does his work before we head off on the adventures of the day. Good thing the work day ends in the U.S. in our mornings, so that he can be free to enjoy the day. Perfect alignment.
I’ve had so many nudges from Cosmo here as well, with his name showing up right where I am and have dreamed of the new bunny love coming into my life too, as well as had signs from him. I’ve been blessed in finding tons of feathers (yes, that continues here), and even wallaby and koala fur on our hikes in the wild nature reserves.
Anyway, since my last post of Tathra and Canberra, we were in Bondi Beach/Sydney, Newcastle, Port Macquarie, and now Byron Bay where we’ll be for three nights before our last destination of Brisbane. I even had the chance to meet the incredible staff at Voiceless, the animal organization in Sydney that hosted Dave for his lecture tour at the most amazing vegan Italian restaurant ever, anywhere – Gigi Pizzeria in Newtown.
We’ve stopped along the way also in beautiful Lemon Tree Passage to walk a Koala Reserve on the Mangrove Boardwalk and Woolgoolga for lunch and seen so many beautiful port and coastal towns along the way. Dave has been in his element too as you can see above of him searching for koalas in Lemon Tree and here at Ti Tree Lake below.
It’s all been amazing and perfect, really giving us the lay of the land and getting to enjoy the best of each place even though for a short time. We even had the chance to go the symphony at the famous Sydney Opera House, which was a wonderful treat, seeing the amazing, blind-by-birth, solo pianist Nobuyuki Tsujii play Chopin. I also gifted myself a beautiful black Australian opal ring there – led to the perfect place to find it in The Rocks historic district – which is the rarest of opals. I wanted something truly special and that would energetically bring the energy to my life even while not in Australia.
But for this post I want to focus on feeling in my element here and how Australia speaks to my spirit, which in large part is the energy, but also the animals and nature….my most cherished friends and nurturers.
I just adore the tropical birds of every sort imaginable….so exotic and the songs and voices they have are memorable and such a gift to hear, morning, noon, and evening. To look up and have them flying all around me and talking from the trees is magickal.
And the other animals like kangaroos, wallabies, koalas, wombats, ring tailed possums, flying foxes, fox, and ocean life (the humpbacks are due to be where we are any moment, as they were only 32 hours behind us in their migration…following our path!), are just so special and dear to me both in their energy and messages, as well as their endearing qualities and beauty.
Unfortunately, I’ve seen more dead animals here than anywhere, as they don’t have fences to protect them from the roads and highways, so anything I haven’t seen in the wild, I’ve sadly seen on the road. We’ve made it a point to only visit wild nature reserves and real rehab facilities, as there are many zoos and even “reserves” here that are really zoos and not actually nature reserves. We don’t support those and prefer to see animals in their natural habitat or in places dedicated to helping animals that have been rescued and if possible, release them back in the wild.
One of these was the Koala Hospital, which I highly recommend visiting if you travel here. We just happened to be only a mile away from it in our Airbnb in Port Macquarie, unbeknownst to us, but such a gift! It was an incredible, moving, and heart warming experience. We enjoyed meeting the koalas and visiting and learning about the Koala Hospital, which is the only Koala Hospital in the world and is as old as me…founded in 1973. I thought that was a pretty cool synchronicity, especially since I feel so drawn to them and had a stuffed koala when I was a little girl. They take in, care for, treat, rehabilitate, and release koalas that are injured and have health challenges. Some come to have a forever home here because they can’t be released back due to their inability to survive because of their disabilities. We arrived right in time for their 3pm free guided tour, which included getting to see a couple of them getting their flavored medication, which they loved and were given so tenderly. Dave and I both picked up Koala Hospital t-shirt and tank to support them. You can also adopt a koala here for $50 to help support them. They take in 250 koalas a year and are not governmentally funded, so everything is donations. They have $500,000 worth of expenses per yer. If you want to help out you can visit:
So yes, I feel really aligned here and in my heart. So I wanted to share the highlights for me that have been most moving and meaningful and some of my favorite captures since my last post, which include me immersed in being me. You can visit Instagram for all the rest.
Dave has captured some photos of different aspects of me in my element…here more my mermaid self in these two.
I especially love this capture of me below by Dave that really reflects this and how I feel as one here and in wonder. This is me in the magickal Mangrove forest at sacred Ti Tree Lake, which is an Aboriginal area just over a mile hike from our Airbnb, which did upon arrival pre-sunset and at twilight. This used to be a sacred place where the Aboriginal women would go to give birth to their children. It feels significant to be here right now for all that is birthing in my life. I’m filled with gratitude and then some.
(Love that that end line was at 1111 words…I’ve been seeing 11:11 and 1:11 here every single day. Definite manifestation magick and portals)
It’s been a very busy time, but balance is important to keep your vitality on high, so in the middle of it all I stopped to take time to create these beauties and felt to quickly share them to spread their energies of inspiration, creativity, planting seeds, manifesting intentions, magick, love, and harmony. I’m SO in love with my mini Faery succulent gardens I can’t take my eyes off of them and so I’ve surrounded myself with them! (They’re even more lovely in person) I had exactly the perfect time needed yesterday to create these magickal little sacred garden sanctuaries for our space with intention to create a more inviting energy for my Faery friends, for this Faery’s writing inspiration, and to welcome the new bunny love that will be entering my life in June. They’re created with 15″ diameter Faery garden mossy baskets, lined with succulent/cactus soil, planted with perfectly placed succulents, covered with Reindeer Moss, Clump Moss, Spanish Moss, Forest Moss, Faery Bark, Crystals, Sea Glass, Faery, Sea Turtle, Faery Portal Door, Rabbit, and sparkly Dragonflies. It was incredibly fun to get my hands in the dirt and channel these homes and playgrounds for my friends. Can’t tell you how much joy they bring me. ✨💚🌈🍃🐇🐢 I even had enough succulents to create two potted mini gardens too – one of which had a sprawling succulent growing already, but was lonely and now has friends. These are perfect, mobile, enchanted gardens for my bohemian lifestyle, need for ease and mobility, and yet satisfies the artist in me and inspires my loves and passions. Speaking of which…..back to my writing and focuses here! Enjoy!
Virgo Full Moon magick to everyone! Some big things have culminated around this moon energy here in my personal experience including a huge ending/beginning that took place yesterday with a lot of recognition of the full circle experience and also how it all was the gift that gave me new life and anchored me here longer, most literally. I also have a big celebration today of my personal empowerment and embodiment, as well as some interesting things revealing themselves.
What are you experiencing around this energy right now? I know a lot of people that are having major shifts in their life, openings, and breakthroughs to their long-time dreams. Exciting to hear and witness.
Virgo has us looking at our relationship to our Earth Mother, our bodies and making that heart connection to their messages, releasing perfectionism, limiting beliefs, and inhibitions, stepping up rather than hiding, and reminding us we need to focus with conviction and integrity on the details and steps put into motion now if we really want to manifest our dreams.
Ready? Set. Go!
I took this photo early this morning when I woke from it beaming on my face through the window.
And today I awaken, reminded of what this day also means for me, as it is the 16-year anniversary of my legally changing my middle name to my official last name, hence now my full, legal name being Tania Marie.
So, a reflection of self-embodiment and a rebirthing and anchoring into who that is, as I’ve continued forward throughout the rest of my life.
It all seems timely and significant with Virgo’s energy right now highlighting things – my opposite sign as a Pisces – which is all about the “practical” application of creative self-expression in a way that most serves the highest good, which is inclusive simultaneously of you.
It’s down-to-Earth energy helps us to bring all of those dreams and ideas into grounded being, anchoring us more with integrity and commitment, and helping us to balance things, knowing that it isn’t just enough to imagine and have incredible ideas, but also we must apply these things in the every-day and understand the processes of manifestation. After all, we aren’t here on Earth for nothing!
Imperfect perfectionism is key too, allowing ourselves to be human through it all and to avoid extremism.
Synchronous to Virgo’s focus on practical matters of life including nutrition, healing, health, “service”, and work, last night we hosted our Tahoe Herbivores’ meetup here at our place for a private screening of “What The Health,” which is a follow-up film exposing government and big business corruption keeping us sick, from the creators of the award-winning documentary Cowspiracy. – both great films and eye-openers for people, plus an added bonus of my partner Dave Simon having cameos in both. 😉
It was a great evening, awesome group of 12, and yummies I made including my air fried, breaded cauliflower with homemade vegan thousand island dressing, my almond “cheeze” ball, and pine nut roasted hummus with rainbow carrots – all a big hit! A guest also brought a huge bowl of sprouted lentils and home made pear kombucha to add to the yum. We even had an amazing sunset to welcome our guests. It was a lovely evening all around followed by dinner at a local Indian restaurant, but I had to smile at the tie-in with the Moon’s energy supporting this evening’s film and discussions.
Anyway, today I plan to get some Nature time in amidst some of my own “practical applications” I’ll be implementing to help balance and ground the energies and see what inspirations come through from immersion time with Terra.
And this integrated Nature and Moon energy brings me to the Magick Crystal Wands for an update.
Right after I posted the three wands that I was guided would be offered, two got spoken for.
So I only have the powerful Neptune and Nymph Wand remaining, currently.
Definitely not one for the faint of heart! It’s watery essence is anchored in Earthy manifestation, SO reminding me of the Virgo/Pisces dynamics! Wow! Perhaps it will end up staying with me! Hehe!! Weeeeeee!
You can get more info on it here, which includes the original link with many more photos of details of it as well:
As mentioned in this post I do have a bunch more wands that spoke to me and will in the future be channeled for offering.
That said, I got the idea yesterday when someone, who had really felt drawn to one of the wands that was spoken for, did not end up being the one to receive it, I immediately was inspired and knew I could create a unique wand for her with some of the elements I had collected and so that put a spin on things and now have 3 custom wand channelings that will be upcoming for individuals in similar circumstances.
So this could be an option too, if you desire.
However, I will reiterate what I shared in my last post on them, that these won’t be created right away, but in their own time, as I have to switch gears a bit for a while.
Who knows though, as I go by inspiration and if suddenly an alignment, divine inspiration, and energy hits and nudges me to make one, then I will.
How’s that for my own Pisces/Virgo integration of divine inspiration tempered with practical application? LOL!
Wishing everyone a balancing Full Moon!
This short and simple message of support and inspiration comes to us via a dear friend of mine who shared this lovely Tarot deck with me she’s enjoying the simplicity and clarity of messages from. She felt that readers here might enjoy this card’s message and I had to agree. Little did she know that it went along with a share I’d posted yesterday via Instagram/Facebook, so I’m adding that message in partnership with her card.
Please click on the photo above to enlarge it for the message.
And here is the synchronous message I posted, in case you didn’t see it and are not on social media.
It was about the path I’ve been walking, especially during and since our little over a year RV adventure, before settling in Tahoe and how it took me on a rich exploration to the depths of ancient Mother Earth womb energy and catapulted me through portals of expansiveness.
This is what I shared about the journey:
I dared to go further and at times felt pulled back like an arrow in order to shoot forward with focused intent.
It wasn’t all easy, as greater levels of vulnerable courage were needed to expose myself, to reveal more pure, unabridged energy at the well of my essence, and to be okay with holding the energy of misinterpreted darkness for others to reflect and throw energetic arrows at, while I stood in my truth as the only deflection, which allows the arrows to penetrate the core so they can be alchemized before returning.
I have felt the loud silence within and without that can be deafening and also beautifully penetrating.
I’ve communed with the harsh realization of collective belief systems and conditioning residing in my own DNA and made better friends with them.
I’ve stumbled and I’ve gotten back up.
I’ve spoken the truth of my own fear of not being able to do justice to the message I’m being guided to channel through my own ever-evolving expressive embodiment.
I’ve seen the other side of blind faith, as I’ve walked through doorways, bent time and reality, and made new breakthroughs that were miraculous in nature.
I’ve unearthed grief and known both tiredness and freshness with life and how every emotion is potential alchemy.
I didn’t know what I was doing or how I was going to do it until I did.
Life is all about the eternally present NOW unfolding and being willing to experience it with faith and humbleness of learning from a clean slate where nothing applies that you once did or knew.
Power lies in having trust during challenging situations, as no level of worry will see us through. Trust in the highest good for all always unfolding, regardless of how that looks. Remember that we’re conditioned to judge the human experience, but there’s always a bigger picture at play that we can believe in beyond reasoning. Our resilient hearts will understand when our limiting thoughts step out of the control seat.
I now find myself free.
And yes, this has been due to my self-belief and willingness to stand in my own uniqueness without comparison or worry/fear of judgment. I found it fun to see how a couple exacts I wrote in my share were in the card’s meaning. 😉
And more than ever I’ve decided to stand on my own in my own truth, as I’ve been seeing how even others living more in a different version than the 3D reality, or are on similar trajectories, are seeing something completely different than I do or engage in ways that are more relative to them than me, so my solace is simply within.
Love and creative magick to each of you in deepening your own self-belief or continuing to live it in the loud silence of your own experience, so that you may access that magick key to an inspired life always.
Yesterday the snow called and we headed off on a snow shoeing adventure in the deep, fresh powder along Taylor Creek in South Lake Tahoe.
No footprints had yet to touch this winter wonderland and the only signs of life were the trees bowing to the presence of the snow, the creek rolling swiftly by and spiraling over rock beings that welcomed the water’s caress, crystals sparkling in the white blankets all around, and a wood pecker who was intuiting where to create a portal in the tree he had chosen.
This stillness was loud and the solitude was welcoming.
Incredible surrealism enveloped this enchanted realm, as we made our own path through the magickal forest and over an arm of the creek, traversing a tree limb packed with snow that provided a bridge to the “other side”.
It was there, off path a bit, that a lone giant caught my eye. I veered off the path I’d been following behind Dave, as it beckoned me closer, which meant making my way through thigh high snow.
After getting about half way, I noticed Dave was far ahead and knew I should catch up, so I told the tree I would be back.
We stopped where the wood pecker showed up at the foot of a tree, feeling that was the place to turn around and so we made our way back and I told Dave we needed to return to the magick tree I’d found, as I promised.
This time I went the whole way, hearing the tree call me to step inside. Once reaching the tree I discovered there was a deep hole to step down into, as the snow had piled up outside of it. So in I stepped without hesitation, knowing this is what it had desired.
Dave captured the journey within this portal, along with many little orbs that filled the inside of the tree, with one larger one showing up.
Some almost look like snow, they are so white. And yet it was not snowing and I was inside the dark shelter of this giant.
If you peer closely you can see all of these tiny orbs moving around inside from frame to frame, from top to bottom of the portal, all around me, some on me, and then the much larger one above me.
This is why the tree beckoned, for my Faery friends and the Nature Spirits awaited.
There are whispers of magick everywhere, if you listen.
We are having a lovely, although very whirlwindish vacation back in Southern California, which I’ll share more of the fun and magick of when I return home and have the time to get the photos I’ve been collecting of our memories here together. But for now, on this special day I just wanted to share something dear to my heart and some Christmas Eve wishes from my and Joy’s hearts to yours.
Today happens to not only be Christmas Eve, but is also the birthday of my sweet rabbit, Joy, who would have been 13 this year.
She reminds me of many things and has been so profoundly around the last week or so with messages and showing up for me and others I know in known or unknown ways.
Today is a reminder of celebrating the inner child and possibilities available to us when we vulnerably share our hearts and embody the integrity of our essence. Joy taught me this and so much more as my companion, guide, and teacher in life. She also taught me to listen within and to trust the messages in and all around me, and that balance was key to living a life of harmony and grace.
There have been some very auspicious events around Joy the last two days and one of which was a sweet message I received this morning that I just had to share because it touched my heart so and again pointed to Joy’s profound reach and messages she is wanting to impart. I won’t share the person who sent it, but here is the message that meant a lot to me:
“To dear Tania, Happy Christmas Eve to you and all your loved ones. You have been and are an inspiration in my life and will now be an inspiration to all others in my life because you have caused a massive ripple. Your way of living has helped bring back the hope in my life which lost me for a while. Yesterday I watched a film which I had thought about watching for a while, but didn’t until yesterday. I watched it because the name of the film was Joy. I followed the magic which the universe in all it’s magical ways was trying to show me. The film is about a lady who despite having everything thrown against her made her dream come true. So now I will follow my dream and be strong. So thank you to you and all your beautiful friends and loved ones with all of my heart. In this moment, I am happy and that is what counts. This moment. I hope to always see your magical pictures you post. Blessings to you. Peace to you, love and Prosperity to you.”
This was my response:
“I can’t express to you enough how reading this message this morning touched me so. Wow! What a beautiful share from you. It made me so happy to hear that you are feeling a sense of renewal and inspired zest for life. This is incredible and if I had any tiny bit of a part in that, I am grateful for that ability to have connected in a meaningful way that makes a difference. Also, you may not be aware, but today, Xmas eve, would have been my rabbit Joy’s birthday…so your message was truly profound, as the film you saw had her name and she’s been so strongly around and sending me messages…now this…It shows how she is also still working her magick as the powerful one that she is, touching others as she always has…and speaks to our connection.”
You may remember I had a dream about Joy the night before the Christmas celebration with my family and then I saw in large letters the lit up word “JOY” on the window across the street of my parent’s house, as a neighbor’s decorative display.
And something else I’ll share more about when I’m home that happened yesterday too. Plus, another friend sharing how much Joy, along with my other loves were around her and felt so much, Laura also sharing how she and my other two bunnies had a hand in some gifts for me, and gifts from two other friends yesterday that she and my bunny loves were a part of.
I hear you Joy and I hope that your message and presence will continue to shine a light of love into everyone’s hearts as you have mine for eternity.
May you all know and embody “joy” and wonder today and all the days of your life and may peace be your constant companion.
Yesterday’s Winter Solstice truly was a portal shifting one reality into another with so many truly magickal events culminating all in the same day that all went beautifully and couldn’t have aligned more perfectly. I wasn’t the only one who had felt this was going to be a powerful transition time and indeed it was. Not to mention had synchronous mergings all around.
I also felt that my bunny loves would have a hand in it all and so they did.
Without going into too much detail, yesterday not only saw an era end and begin with the Magick Bus being purchased by the most lovely couple and perfect new family for her, but saw Dave’s dad through a very successful surgery, there were two very special events that took place and were celebrated with a birthday and a union, my parents and we had some solidification of new anchored, we received more clarity on our living/housing situation, snow faery flurries of snow started off the day and created a wonderland fit for the Solstice, I created a Winter Solstice crystal grid with new crystals that will be utilized in some upcoming cosmic/faery/shamanic creations (this was a way to activate them set with the backdrop of the perfect Christmas card my parents gave me, as you can see having the words “A Gift…A Joy…A Miracle”):
I had prophetic dreams the night before of one of the events that took place and had smelled what seemed like roses and carnations (some kind of flowers for sure – the floral fragrance was so strong) wafting in the air during the time it was to happen that no one else could smell around me even though I was no where near the event (this felt like timelines merging and portals accessed), and I found the perfect private beach in Zephyr Cove (perfect name too) for some of Cosmo’s ashes to be spread on the lake per his wishes on this day, as his beloved Joy and dear friend Nestor had had theirs.
I even found confirming gifts of a white quartz stone shaped like a heart, and a lovely feather, on the beach just before reaching the stone pools where I lovingly dusted 5 small pinches of Cosmo’s Earthly beingness into a sacred little pool created by some of the beautiful, prehistoric rock formations of the lake.
There were other tie-ins with Cosmo and the Magick bus that made this day and events around these, to be much more than just symbolic, but also divinely orchestrated.
But back briefly to the Magick Bus. Dave and I never attached to any one person who would contact us to see her, as we knew when things were right they would just happen magickally. Plus, I’d already done a Reiki healing attunement on it all, so there was no reason to think in that way.
That said, I did have this sense that since these people wanted to see it on the Solstice, were driving all the way from Santa Rosa (4 hours away), which was the same place where the people who flew down and bought my Hunab Ku SUV outright for the exact price I asked were from, and I had the intention it would go before the end of the year, and maybe even before we left for our Christmas trip, it did seem auspicious.
Not to mention, it was the day I had Cosmo’s ashes with us and he and Joy had been actively working on bringing the right people to her.
My next indication was when the woman and I immediately learned that we shared the same favorite number and have had it our favorite since childhood – the number 5, which also so happens to always be a sign and message of confirmation from my beloved Nestor.
And more synchronicities came up during our conversations with the couple, which were uncanny. Then we were surprised by them offering us the exact amount we were asking, which had been the same with my car.
We were all just so grateful, as not only had they searched a long time for the right RV home, but we had intended the right people who would love and care for her in the same way. And we all discovered how we shared being meticulous people and how that was what sold them and what also one of the things that made us feel the Magick Bus was in wonderful caring hands. Yay!
AND, on the way to where we have the Magick Bus stored, we saw 18 hawks, which make a 9 for endings, numerologically. Then after our shaking/hugging on the whole thing and leaving, we saw 1 hawk for new beginnings. 19 total, also creating the merging of endings and beginnings in its 1 and 9 combination, but when added equaling a 1 again.
Needless to say, it was a day of big celebrations all around, bitter sweetness, and wonderful endings and beginnings.
We are now en route (yes, another road trip – 8 hours this time and with the kitty babies along for the ride) since this early morning after Solstice to Southern California for a long Christmas celebration feeling full in heart with love and gratitude for the incredible gifts received for the highest good of all.
I took this photo this morning at 7:30 am right when we’d gotten on the road. It was such a mystical view of the sun behind golden veils of mist and snow clouds. So mysterious! At times you could see the full sun behind a very thin veil with a soft golden halo around, against white blankets of clouds and lighting the tips of the snow covered trees in lemony gold. Stunning!
I’m not sure I’ll have time to blog until we return home Monday the 26th, but if I do it will be a brief message of holiday wishes.
Until then, I hope you enjoy the beautiful photos of my Solstice magick, as I always love to spread the energetic vibes and love to each of you. A way to share life from my perspective and to connect us across space and time.
Yesterday we spent our first Christmas celebration of the season with my family at their Faery wonderland home and on this day we also surpassed our 27 hawks and a transitioned owl we saw on Thanksgiving with seeing 32 hawks and an owl taking to flight. Incredible! The night before I was visited by my rabbit, Joy, who was sending me a message, as my little ones often do, asking me to “listen” to something coming. And her message received reiteration when we pulled up to my parent’s house and directly across the street their neighbor’s Christmas decorations included a huge lit up word on their front window – “JOY”. Joy’s Earthly birthday just so happens to be on Christmas Eve, so I’m keeping an “ear” out, just as she showed me in my dream. I’d also picked up a collection of small crystals at the store before heading to my parent’s house, which I’ll be using in some home-made and nature-potent magick tools and relics I’ll be creating come the New Year. Anyway, I’d forgotten my cell at home, so only had my small Nextbook laptop to snap some okay photos of just some of the enchantment at my family’s home. My parents are big on decorating throughout all the seasons and holidays of the year and truly enjoy making things magickal, warm, and inviting with each room having a theme -there’s Toyland, Traditional Christmas, White Winter Wonderland, Santa’s Village, and more. I forget how many Christmas trees they have, but it’s a lot! And their collection of Santas and Nutcrackers surpasses what they actually put out in the house (this collection includes our first Nutcracker, which was actually mine from a child that was not only my secret boyfriend and “prince” while growing up, but had been my Nutcracker when I starred as Clara in the Nutcracker ballet I did when a little girl). I found it interesting that the photo of the nutcrackers below has this odd yellow band of energy that crosses through their crown chakras – no that’s not a painted stripe on the wall hehe! We had a really fun and cozy gathering, sharing nurturing gifts all around, and we returned home stocked with meals and goodies to carry us through until we depart Thursday for Southern California for our continued Christmas celebrations. Mom made a Greek-themed Christmas dinner and dad did his usual gourmet baking of mincemeat pie (loaded with apples, cranberries, raisins, candied ginger and more), cranberry spiced oatmeal cookies, rosettes, and apple dumplings. I even had a chance to snuggle up to Santa himself, and whisper my wishes into his ear. 😉 And my brother gifted us with some astrological readings, which confirmed and empowered the transitions I’ve made in my own life recently and connected the dots with big a-ha’s as to why I have recreated my life as such. Grateful for the love and magick that pervades my life.
Wishing everyone some holiday warmth and enchantment, but above all peace to your hearts. From my family to yours, I share these photos with love.
I didn’t have a chance to post these yesterday, but now that I have a few more photos to add I thought today would be perfect. These are some photos from Sunday before the Supermoon, during the heightened time of the Supermoon, and the day of, as well as morning after (today).
So many magickal things showed up like 6 ladybugs on the water at my favorite spot in Lake Tahoe where I put Joy’s and Nestor’s ashes, a peace and love sign we stumbled upon that were created in pine cones in the forest that lit up with dancing light and colors in the camera lens, but weren’t there in the dusk hour otherwise, amazing essence of the Moon I caught when I woke in the middle of the night and morning of its fullness, so many crystalline light energies and rays the day after that even a duck couple were calling our attention to, and more!
I’ll let you enjoy them without any further descriptions, so you may absorb the energies along with me.
We’ve officially moved into our new place this past Sunday 11/6 and it’s been quite a busy several days both leading up to the move and since, with still more to go as we not only complete the full transition, but get the Magick Bus prepped for storage and selling. It’s amazing how easy it is, on an emotional and mental level, to transition from home to home for us, which mirrors the ease and joy we experienced waking up in new cities, states, and national parks over the last year. Fluidity has become our way of life and change continues to be my best friend.
So many beautiful alignments have shown up, making us know that we’re in the right place, that the guidance and message I received to come here were loud and clear, and that all things are aligned, not to mention reflect a continuation of magickal manifestation ramping up increasingly.
More and more I’m seeing that all of the hard work I’ve invested over the years and beyond is coming full circle in beautiful blessings.
It was hard for so long to have only belief fueling my journey, but that consistent commitment to knowing within myself that everything I was doing was in fact part of the beauty of life, regardless of where I found myself along the way in process, has changed the perspective of that journey to enjoyment and brought me to a place of creating with greater ease and flow….Gifts in abundance for my patience and willingness to implement new processes with the growth I embraced.
This included a beautiful email message the day before we moved in from our new landlord, which carried the energy of the way I speak and was so full of light, not to mention, mirrors just what I had felt from the place.
Here’s the message:
“I am confident you will both enjoy your winter stay at the le Chateaux Dans le Ceil! There is a lot of magic, beauty and positive energy here. Namaste, Brian”
It made me feel that we had a lot more in common than we knew and that proved true when on the day of our move and meeting with him again he shared with me that on our first meeting he felt I looked so familiar.
I thought, perhaps a past life bleed through (which I still in fact feel), but he mentioned then that after he thought he knew me from somewhere that he’d looked on Facebook and saw that we were in fact friends there with many shared friends.
He further continued to say that he and his wife were also Reiki Masters and studied under William Lee Rand.
Hehe! Talk about magickal manifestations…not only to be in this beautiful home, but to attract such positive energy.
He went on to say that he had Reiki’d the whole place…Yes, that’s why Dave and I both immediately felt good and inspired right away from first seeing it. I had in fact known it was the one for us and felt the energy just from the photos online.
We also discovered how the owner and I both had the same little art travel case, both loved Ankhs (he saw my Ankh ring tattoo, which opened that dialogue), and both were creatives and far from techy people.
He and his wife had built and decorated the place to be like a Santorini cliff house all in white with touches of aquas and with underwater sea life paintings throughout, which is perfect for this Pisces and both Dave and I being Water signs, not to mention I’ve been to Santorini and loved it, of course the all-white has mirrored dream and cosmic journey sequences for me I’ve had that were profound, and the aqua is my favorite color.
They also had created this place to be very relaxing with everything you’d need to live a truly nurtured and inspired life all self-contained to include things like an outdoor jacuzzi on the deck and an indoor sauna – all great for after ski, hiking, or simply wanting to soak in life.
There’s even a wonderful gas fireplace as the main heating element for the cozy 1000 square feet that’s on a thermostat so now and then, including in the night and morning, the lovely flames will go on and added to the views from every window and open floor plan, it really is incredible.
Anyway, we got to enjoy our first night and morning in our new retreat home on Sunday, which came after a big day of moving ourselves in.
There are 105 (yes I counted them) steps to reach our little “castle in the sky”, which is also like a wonderful tree house in the clouds surrounded by tree spirits at nearly 7500 elevation.
I guess I must be in shape as we’ve now done nearing 3 d0zen trips up and down, so far, carrying heavy loads and boxes, but it is so worth it.
And we took advantage of the jacuzzi on our first night after dinner I made overlooking the city lights around the lake and viewing the moon and stars.
I knew that Cosmo, although not physically with us, was and has been so present in this whole process, along with my other loves, in helping to bring this all together and were in the stars twinkling at us from above.
How I’ve missed him nonetheless, wishing he could have physically experienced our new home, but I know in every way he is with us enjoying it in a more expansive way and is my angel presiding over the magick in my life with Joy, Nestor, and Gaia. I am just so grateful I had the chance to take him to the lake, as I promised him so he could take it all in.
Every time I look out at the lake, he is with me, as all my loves are, since we’ve all shared this place and these views together at one time or another.
I don’t think we’re going to get tired of the view here in our new sanctuary, nor all of the nurturing things this beautiful home has to offer us, and i feel so excited to get settled and jump back into my writing once we’re fully settled. Oh, how my imagination is flying!
We also have my friend Janet coming out to Lake Tahoe this Friday for the weekend on her way back home to visit and spend some time exploring and hiking the area with us, which is new to her and her sweet little dog, Daisy. You may remember that she traveled with us for several weeks during our time in Wyoming and Montana. Then she went to my friend Hillary’s new ranch where she’s been since July helping out with things there.
Anyway, this is the perfect place for me to hibernate surrounded in inspiration for the next 6 months and I’ll soon be fully immersed in my new life of which we are so grateful for.
Our lives have been such a gift in every way, and especially magickal since the day we said goodbye to our home and way of life in Orange County and jumped in the Magick Bus.
Indeed it is a “Magick Bus”, as its brought so much incredible beauty and richness to our lives and opened us to unlimited and expansive possibilities, where we are constantly updating our thinking and aligning more with our feelings and essence.
