Creative Captures.. Happy Halloween Everyone

You would think that Retirement would lend itself to giving you more time . Yet as my Hubby said when upon retiring several years ago he wondered how he had found time to go to work?.

Life in the Dreamwalker household has been busy busy to say the least since I took the plunge and retired.. I still have lots of catching up  to do with your beautiful blogs . And for all those who have taken the time to visit my posts I am in the process of returning your kindness..  But for now I will leave you with a flavour of what I have been up to mostly  in picture format.

So along with alterations around our home, we have been putting the home garden to bed for winter and sorting out the allotments. Hubby moved a row of raspberry shrubs as we learn by our mistakes as they grew I got nicely tangled in their tendrils.. So more  space has been created between them and a support made for the Logan Berries..

I have also been busy in the evenings as those darker nights draw in. I am in the process of Knitting a Baby shawl which I was requested to knit. I have about another 15cms to go then it will measure  a metre in length.. I then have to knit a boarder which will then be sewn all the way around it.. So still a ways to finish.

 And Lastly.. wishing you ALL a HAPPY HALLOWEEN

Below is my Granddaughter who over her last few visits has been busy with me Baking and tasting

Are you in your Light Bubble?

Darkness cannot drive out darkness’ only Light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out Hate; 
Only Love can do that.
 
Martin Luther King, Jr

I watched a TV programme on Sunday about Star gazing and a place in Northumberland where there is no light pollution in the sky.. The thousands of stars that twinkled down were phenomenal.

Since the beginning of time, humans have gazed at the stars in the night sky with awe, looking for answers and inspiration to guide them. We have grown up with stories of gods and goddesses, astrology,  and astronomy.

We have worshipped, wondered, and even projected ourselves out into space both physically and mentally  in an attempt to understand their magical essence. We know more now than we ever have about what those celestial lights are, how far away they reside. We spend Billions of $ and £’s in exploration to travel to another planet.. And yet we fail so miserably in attempting to Conserve and Protect many species  which go extinct daily. And we fail to see how we as Human Beings are destroying our very home, Planet Earth. 

Humankind is most often presented as a story about struggle, control, and survival, instead of one of trust and collaboration with the universe. Yet, in truth, we need to adhere to both ideas in this life. We need to be mindful for  on the one hand, there is much to be said about exerting control over our environment. We created shelter to protect ourselves from the elements. We hunted for animals and invented agriculture to feed ourselves.

We built social infrastructures to protect ourselves and create community. This is how we survive and grow as a civilization. However, it is also clear that there are plenty of things that we cannot control, no matter how hard we try, these are the events around our globe which bring suffering, disease and disasters.  We forget  we are supported from an unseen force – a universe that provides us with what we cannot provide for ourselves.

So as I look to the Stars I also know that we have to take on Personal Responsibility. These are the things we can control in life.  But I also know that we need to Trust in the process of the Universe.. We need to manifest our dreams and visions. When we understand our very thoughts are bringing into our physical reality that which we focus our intent upon.. So I ask you to think carefully what Drama’s you are getting caught up within.

I know its not easy, but the more we focus upon our own Lights and live within our own bubbles we are helping bring Positive Change.. It all starts from within.. And we then must Trust, let go and allow the universe to take over.

As I look at the picture below I know we can all sprinkle our various Bubbles of Light around the world.. We do it by treating each other as we would wish to be treated.. We stop buying into Gossip and spreading the woe is me stories of doom and gloom..  Yes there are horrid things happening out there.. And I am as compassionate as the next. But if I am fearful or I spread doom and Gloom.. I am only adding more Darkness to the world.. So I choose to sit in my bubble and spread a little Love and Light..

 

Bubbles Of Light

Out into space I travel afar

Gazing back down from that far away star

The light is forever within my grasp

As I watch over the changes of my past

One by one my memories fall

As downward they tumble as I hear your call

Those spheres of light are orbs of truth

Memories recalled way back in my youth

Time trickles onward like the grains of sand

Of a place and a time in a far away land

When all were happy and all were free

And when bubbles of Light

Were just you and me..

Journey Within ~Poem

Vicar's Water. A Sanctuary for wild life

Vicar’s Water. A Sanctuary for wild life

Journey Within..

Come with me on a journey it starts inside my head

Create a place to dwell from all the Fear and dread

Close your eyes and behind them create a perfect vision

Build a garden full of beauty get ready for your transition

~

Sit upon the grass as sky lark sings above

Hold out your hand to feed the many cooing Doves

See the babbling stream as the young fawn drinks her fill

And listen to the Woodpecker’s distant woodland drill

~

Watch the tiny fishes as the light glistens from their scales

You’re now adrift in the ocean, as you watch the Humpback Whales

You listen to their song a lament as old as time

Each breath takes you deeper as your Spirit begins to climb

~

Now you are on a mountain its top all crisp and white

You fly among the Eagles suspended in effortless flight

Thermals take you higher as you travel within its ring

Higher yet you travel, more peace to feel and bring

~

Through the clouds you break into outer-space you speed

Looking back at a Blue Planet which provided all your needs

Weightless and suspended no longer feeling Form

You fly around the heavens exploring each star born.

~

Filled up now with knowledge no mortal Words could speak

You return back to your garden upon your grassy seat

A new sense of Peace surrounds you as you open up your eyes

You can return in an instant, just open up your mind.

 

 

We can travel anywhere we wish when we just close our eyes and allow our mind to relax in a meditation.. Breathe deep and create your perfect space…. The above poem I wrote last week as I recollected part of a meditation.. The view I have included is one taken on a regular walk we often take..Have a fabulous week.

Thank you for Reading

Hi hi!

It is October now and as I promised that I would, I have completed another random act of kindness. I like to do smaller acts of kindness throughout each day, but I also carefully plan a more thoughtful random act of kindness each month.You only need to take a look at the Kindness Blog or The Daily Good to see how many beautiful people there are in this world. Their stories have inspired me to do even more good deeds. My mission is to bring as many bright smiles to my hometown and the whole world as I can.

If you want to find out what random act of kindness that I have created and delivered this month, please click on this short video (it has a groovy soundtrack too). I hope you enjoy it!

FZ out!! :)

Autumns Dance

Spirit of Autumn, My interpretation of the Magic of Autumn Gold.

Spirit of Autumn, My interpretation of the Magic of Autumn Gold.

The Winds Dance

From where does the wind gain her mighty strength?

How long is her trail, her width and her length?

From whence does a breeze grow into a gale?

As she shrieks and blusters bringing down hail

~~

And how does her anger in tornadoes twirl

Calm to the silence in the eye of a storm

And when does her shout fall to whispers and calm

That caressers the skin in the light of the dawn

~~

She flirts with the leaves to twist them and prance

Lifting them up to have their last dance

Her friend is the rain as he falls from the sky

Pelting the ground as he matches her sighs

~~

She finds every nook and the cracks to creep in

Howling laments as she shrieks out her din

The trees bow their heads in respect to her might

Those who resist are snapped in their fight

~~

She whips up the oceans creating great swells

And blows in the mountains, valleys and dells

She blows up the snow that drifts on the ground

She’s gentle and silent then violent and loud

~~

Never underestimate Nature with all of her sides

She’s stronger than Man despite all of his strides

Respect ALL the elements, to not is to fall

Because Nature is Mother, Listen to her call

My thoughts are sent out to those in the path of any forthcoming storms around the world..

 I wrote this poem some time ago when we were experiencing High winds..

The above artwork I did a couple of years ago.. As I tried to capture the Golden Magic of Autumn and the glitter of Frost upon the fallen leaves.. 

I hope you are all enjoying a wonderful week as I leave you with this poem.

Autumn Up date of Allotments ~ Grow your Own.

The weather here in the UK has taken a turn for the worse as Autumn is making her presence known. Last week we were basking in glorious Sun of temperatures in the 20’C  and this week its plummeted to average of around 14’C  going even colder at night.. So the jumpers are back on and the stew pot of veggies have been on the menu.   The weather really turned for the worse for those living just a few miles down the road from us.. As a Mini Twister tore roofs off homes in the Derbyshire town of Alfreton.  To see pictures of the damage caused the link is here....     These types of ‘Twisters’ are unusual in the UK..  We have been busy getting the allotments sorted and storing and freezing.. So lots have kept us busy. Below is a picture update.. 

The Allotments in October 2014 in Picture Format .

At the Back of the shed the old rubbish heap is going to be levelled. This is where we intend to grow our Butternut squash next year. As the allotment next to us just put his squash on old soil and left them.. They were 3 sizes bigger than ours.. So here they will have room to spread out to their hearts content :-)

The Ethers of Illusion

Photobucket

Illusion.

What do you see in this Reality?

 

Do not your eyes view what is real to see?

 

Can you not touch the tangible fusion?

 

Or do we gaze into the ethers of illusion,

 

What trickery mocks us as we take in the lies

 

Binding our thoughts in roots of indoctrination

 

Following the herd, bleating like sheep

Held captive, half asleep.

 

What happened to the land of the Free?

 

Conform or suffer, or pay the penalty

 

What is your reality?

 

Come, let me walk you through the misty vale.

 

To where this illusion significantly pales

 

We are magnificent magicians whose thoughts cast their magic

 

Where all is possible, where to doubt is tragic

 

Seek and Find, let go of fear

 

Dance in joy as Light penetrates your sphere

 

For you have forgotten our Time’s lost spell

 

As into the abyss of darkness you dwell.

 

Open your eyes and open your hearts.

 

Let the Light dispel all dark

 

Fear nothing, hate less, and embrace ALL

 

Seek a new illusion before you fall.

 

Stop following blindly, grasp hold of Love today

 

Remember your tomorrows, forget your yesterdays

 

Reach for the memory held high up in the stars

 

And heal from within, let go of all your scars

 

Sit in the silence; begin to know who you are

 

As illusion drifts away revealing Ancient Stars

 

Your time is but a moment, live each moment well,

 

For soon the illusion shatters, broken like a spell.

I resurrected this poem which I published 4 years ago.. As it seems we are bombarded on all sides from the negative energies which are being put out.. 

Detach and spend some time in your Quite zones of thought.. Bring in the Peace around you, and know that we are Magnificent BEings who have remarkable powers..

The Power of Thought!

What we Think we Create

We are the ones creating the chaos… So choose to create Peace.. Don’t allow yourselves to get caught up within the Fear being put out.. 

Know your time is but a moment, Live each moment well

For soon the Illusion shatters,

Broken like a Spell. 

Enjoy your week 

Blessings

“There are painters who transform the sun to a yellow spot, but there are others who with the help of their art and their intelligence, transform a yellow spot into sun”

Pablo Picasso
