Hope you enjoyed yesterday’s Halloween/Samhain energies, however you chose to celebrate.
These are couple of the fun sides of the day I had that included Halloween inner child fun in the faery kitchen making these giant vegan pumpkin spice pancakes (no molds, just pure imagination) while listening to Monster Mash and Thriller playing in the background.
And witchy time with Boojum our black cat.
The rest involved nature immersion where I was gifted a sparkly raw quartz Samhain gift just after a large hawk flew across the trail, a sweet Samhain gift exchange, soft evening ritual after setting up a sacred Egyptian altar, and night cake baking.
The landscape around us continues to have that in between, seasonal energy just like the feeling of being in between times, dimensions, or crossing veils that are increasingly being experienced.
I hope you enjoy this sweet little montage of Autumn nature art from Saturday’s bike ride, along with an inspiring quote for the month:

And while you enjoy Lee’s Energy Update for November below, I’m behind the scenes here preparing the first Collective Energy Dynamics Forum recorded session for those of you who registered for this 6 month immersion. Please remember to get in questions to me – I’ll send out an email reminder in the next day or two. I’ll also reach out to the small group participating in the live session to set up our meetup date. If you still want to be a part of the live session, please reach out to me today – I left up registration for it just through today, while I’m preparing emails to our two groups here: CEDF. We are open to one more person tops to keep this intimate, so, if you feel the connection to this group energy please let me know.
I also have a fun pre-order offering upcoming in the next few weeks. I’m working on the details, but you’ll have the ability to customize a couple of items I’m working on as example. Stay tuned!
In the meantime, here’s another very resonating message from Lee for the month and aligned with many of the messages I’ve been receiving as well.
Themes include: rising energy and allowing the old to go in order to bring power through in new ways, body healing, confusion being a part of your journey to sovereignty, things continuing to surface that will change past narratives, electric storm energy activating and purging surprises and delights, and higher consciousness messaging increasing.
Ever since our Amethyst babies have returned home, the energy has been shaking up and redirecting here. Not in a new direction, per say, but into alignment with what I’d been sensing. The Universe, or All That Is, likes to reiterate things in reflection and with the types of astrological placements I have, much of the time my messages come in clear through an injury or fracture. This took place today.
I slipped on some ice, even after being told twice by Dave to be careful of it AND being cautious. My heel just hit the perfect angle sending me out of balance and falling in a way that overextended my knee. And this leaves me either with a strain or tear to my MCL. At least not a bone fracture, as my usual M.O., but ligament injuries are no fun thing and it will take time to heal.
And where does that leave me?
Only able to focus on my writing again. Go figure!
It was no surprise by me and it just seems that the Universe, or Uni, as I like to call IT has my back and knows me well – that to get into alignment with the momentum needed, there would need to be something put into place.
I’ve also sensed a lot of energy out there and my desire not to engage in it. There may be a part of that in this too, but also reflecting how I’m really ready to move forward with new momentum.
And, just like Astrid went through her little experience of moving energy through her solar plexus recently, I am moving energy through my knee – the place of flexibility, movement, and considered where we assimilate knowledge and learning on a spiritual and energetic level (think kneeling and praying – even being knighted back in the day). When you take into account that knees can also represent fears and humility, it makes a lot of sense.
It’s interesting that Astrid has changed her position of where she lays the last few days for her daytime naps. Normally she’s enjoyed being under the sleigh at center of our room or under the low meditation table in the exercise room adjacent to ours.
But I’ve found her now in the top level of her castle tower and with her body curved in positions where her bunny butt hangs out the window on one side or her legs do.
She seems to say with this that the peace in our hearts can keep us anchored and safe, even when we stretch parts of ourselves through unknown doorways.
That it’s about moving forward with a new approach to change, which is basically the unknown.
“You know, the unknown you’ve felt around your book,” she adds.
She likes to cut to the chase.
“Yes, you’re absolutely right,” I reply. “And you know that I’ve said I was going to get back to it full time after my birthday even though I’ve felt some fear around it.”
“Yes, and I’ve seen you clearing the slate and making room for it,” she says. “You’ve been feeling the tug at your heart for a few weeks now, while being presented with life options, and we’ve been waiting to see what you’d choose.”
She’s right. I have been feeling it in the background very profoundly and started getting the sense to jump full on in again, which is why on Monday I’d announced that Monday and Wednesday’s blogs would likely go dormant while I switch back gears to writing full time.
“Yes, and you know how powerful your words and feelings are. You then created the scenario to ensure it!” she says with a wink.
“I did indeed, because now I will need to rest my knee and lay low, which will keep me where I feel I want and need to be. It also ensures I listen to the messages so as not to create anything really terrible. I think the wind and storm, and now the knee, all point to new directions and their timeliness I’ve felt in my soul. Funny that I also was heading into a new form of painting with my side creative time to accompany writing, which all keeps me able to sit or lay on the bed while doing them.”
“You do follow your feelings well,” she says. “There are times you may feel vulnerable or even unsure about something, but you have never been one to resist the winds of change. That’s why you braved those 80 mile an hour winds without hesitation and stepped into them with determination to retrieve your things. Your knee is not a punishment or bad thing, but simply a reset and an opportunity to surrender even more and open to yet wider, even more flexible possibilities you have yet to imagine with your writing. Anything that feels overwhelming can be embraced through humility. I know that the next phase will likely be your hardest one yet with the book, but the wisdom of your knee is to yield in the face of change. Something I know you can do well, my friend. Remember where you’ve been and how far you’ve come. Now repeat that process. The parts and players may be different, but the game is still the same.” she says.
I wonder if any of you are approaching similar resets in your life that seem both exciting and overwhelming?
Do Astrid’s words touch a chord?
