You Were Meant to Fly ~ My Moth Friend Update


Just a quick little update on my sweet Moth friend for those of you who were wanting to know what happens.

If you don’t remember this story, here is the background so that you understand the context of this share: Honoring Your Personal Timing ~ Seeing the Moth in Me

Well, in the two days that followed the post she disappeared.

She was no longer on my plants anywhere and didn’t show up in sight somewhere else.

I felt it was a good sign that her wings finally were ready and she had flown. However, that meant she was stuck somewhere inside.

Dave was concerned at first that one of the cats may have gotten her before she flew, but then figured we would see part of her body somewhere close and we didn’t.

I had the sense she was alive and well somewhere.

Last night I discovered where.

Apparently she had gone into the shower, likely because it has a skylight that allows the outdoor natural light in. But I didn’t realize this until I went to turn on the water to get it warm for my shower.

I turned it on and closed the door. Then checked a minute later and I find her fluttering around in the water on the ground. The water had been filling about a half inch to an inch recently because with all of the rain the ground had softened, which had the RV unleveled slightly. We fixed this later, but it had been pouring so much that it made it hard to get out and put wood under the levelers.

Anyway, I immediately cupped my hands and helped her out. If I hadn’t gotten to her, she’d likely have drowned. She fluttered around in my hands trying to dry her wings.

I was just so happy to see her and to know she could now fly.

Poor thing, now going through this and having her wings wet, so that she has to get them dry and strong once again.

I couldn’t put her outside because it was pouring, so I decided to return her to my plants so she could dry overnight.

She didn’t want off of my hand though. She was clinging and wanting to stay with me.

Dave giggled saying, “She knows her momma.”

Finally I did get her onto one of my plants and enclosed the area to keep her safe for the night.

This morning I went to check on her and there she was still on the plant with her wings closed.

She must have been recuperating all night.

I’m just so happy that she can fly, but boy she’s going through a lot this little one.

She does remind me of what my journey has been like too and probably many of yours.

Many challenges, many times of feeling like I’ve been drowning, overcome with emotions, hitting my rock bottom, unsure of the next course of action, but still getting back up, persevering, and willing my way to fly, as I know I was born to do.

As we all are.

As this little Moth is.

Don’t let life’s challenges keep you down. Even when it looks like all hope is gone, there is always a way, a helping hand you can embrace, another perspective or choice you haven’t tried, another path to your wings taking flight.

I decided to reintroduce her to the great outdoors again, feeling that she’s much better off outside in Nature now than she is indoors where she can catch the attention of the cats since she can fly now.

I actually just returned from taking her outside for release.

I put out my hand to my plant and she climbed on. I then went outside and walked over to the closest tree.

I stood there giving her Reiki and she opened her wings to feel the cool air on them.

As she did they began to quickly vibrate, as if she was taking in the vibrations all around, through them, and as Nature reminded every cell within her to awaken to herself.

Earth’s vibrations pulsed through her and she suddenly took to flight, softly fluttering from my hand as she showed me proudly how she could fly.

My heart was joyous.

Then she came to rest on the trunk of the tree. I think she needs time to adjust and so I surrounded her with more Reiki, asked the Faeries to touch her wings with their magick, and asked the tree to protect her.

I will check on her a bit later, but I feel now she is where she’s meant to be and she has gone back to her true Mother – Nature.

Nature’s Messages – Autumn Weekend at the Beach


After another quite intense and deeply soul reflective dream Friday night, the weekend unfolded like a beautiful symphony of divinely orchestrated blessings, messages, encounters, and loving support that were exactly what I needed at the right time – just as my previous post – Angels in Disguise – explored.

Don’t you just love how that happens? Or at least how it CAN happen if you keep present, observant, and oh so ever-open and believing.

And if nothing else, they were beautiful moments in Nature that brought smiles, tears, skips in heartbeat, and stole some breaths. Not a bad deal either way.

Here’s a pictorial of the ocean’s love shared with me, and short captions and links to explore for yourself, if you so choose. Or, simply enjoy the images.

A lot of winged ones have increasingly been showing up, along with feather gifts. This weekend was no exception.

The way things evolved over the course of the weekend seemed to weave a story for me that connected with my dream sequence I’ve been having, as well as things I’ve been reflecting upon and feeling.

For the moments taken in heart and any Earth Angels that were with me, but not showing up here in photo, thank you.

feather (1)

A week after finding my Osprey tail feather, this nearly 16″ wing feather of what I believe to be from a Pelican showed up – a first for me. Not only did being a long wing feather feel significant energetically, but I stumbled upon this wonderful “Birds in Alchemy” article that included Pelican as one of the states of the alchemical process. It resonated very much: http://www.crystalinks.com/birdsalchemy.html

cairn

This beautiful little sacred stone cairn was right next to where I stationed myself on the beach. I love the unique stones in it, the marbled one at top, the inclusion of a branch, but of course the tiny, light feather of the air that was placed at the top (anchored under the white stone) in contrast to the foundational, earthy stones

feather

I saw this sweet little angelic feather just after coming upon a sea gull that had very recently transitioned. I was so taken by the beauty, grace, and peaceful energy of the sea gull, both feeling the sadness of goodbye and the freedom of expansion. This little feather reminds me of the image in my Angels in Disguise post.

egrets

This was a beautiful sight…a pair of majestic Egrets. I have never seen two together before at the beach. I’ve only seen one on its own and it’s a rare sighting even at that. But two felt significant. This image of one in flight behind the other I just love. http://funkman.org/animal/bird/greatwhiteegret.html

sanderlings

I LOVE the Sanderlings and Snowy Plovers that show up on the beach at different intervals. Today there were so many, more than I’ve seen and they were so lovely standing peacefully together or nestled breast to sand. I love how they move together as a collective and their timing is so in sync with Nature. When their little feet glide quickly over the sand it makes me giggle.

osprey2

Osprey seems to be prevalent in my life right now. It had been a long time since they showed up, but never with so much presence and connection with me, as lately. After finding the Osprey tail feather last weekend, I found yet another Osprey feather and a direct, moving encounter. Coming out of an elevated meditative place, I opened my eyes to see Osprey appear in front and circle low around me once, with feet and talons out looking at me directly, then continued on his way. Returned three more times then later found him perched eating his catch for the day.

moth2

On my walk I saw this sweet white Moth caught in the sand at the water’s edge. I was taken right away by her beautiful pastel aqua and lavender under-wings and pure energy. I gently and carefully picked her up wondering if she had already transitioned, but in fact her little legs moved. She’d been waterlogged and unable to fly.

moth

So I held her giving her Reiki and took her over to a raised area far from the water and placed her on a flat, dry spot right next to some plants and flowers for her and tenderly opened her wings so she could dry and rest in all her glory. I discovered one of her wings was damaged, but she seemed to fight for life continuing to move her legs and antennae. I knew that she’d have a rough go at it with a broken wing, but I would provide her every chance to live as fully as she could, or transition in peace and glory. I read that insect wings don’t grow back or heal, but I empowered her wings as they were – perfect and beautiful. They say a moth with a broken wing won’t recover, but she was loved and honored and in her safer surroundings she can choose her path for her remaining time, rather than walked on or drowned.

cucumber

For only the second time ever did I come across these magickal little pink and orange sea cucumbers on the beach. Just two on this day…again that pairing like the Egrets. The last time I’d seen tons lining the beach. And now, I’m in awe, as I was looking for the blog post link to share, so you can read their symbolism and just discovered the synchronicity of this sighting.

sea cucumber

http://tinyurl.com/seacucumbers this is the link to my post and if you look at the title and its date, it was posted almost exactly one year ago: Reflections on the Current Intensities & Today’s Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries October 18th, 2013! And tomorrow on the 8th we will be revisiting a Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in Aries again, along with a Blood Moon. There is an obvious connection with these sea cucumbers and this moon phase. You can read their symbolism and my insights in the post linked.

smiley parasail

Although you can’t see it well in the photo, nearing the end of the afternoon I had to smile when I saw this parasail that had a giant yellow smiley face on it. 🙂

seagulls

The seagulls also started to surround me, as they sat peacefully gazing at the horizon, listening for the music in the sunset along with me.

footprint

And as I made my way back up the cliff to leave, my eye caught this…a heart footprint. The only one in all the footprints left behind by those who walked this path. ❤
