Following the Flow

Arriving back from my vacation can often feel like a shock to the system, as we adjust back into the realm of being busy, as our days of relaxation are soon over.

Having had time away in beautiful Scotland, when I arrived home, the weather in England had been exceptionally warm, and therefore everything in the garden had bloomed, including the weeds.  So, among our first tasks was to set too and water and weed and sow seeds that still needed to be sown and plant out things which had been in the cold-frame which were ready for the allotment.

This was what it was like when we left this piece at the end of April before my holiday.

Sometimes things have to take a backseat and it happened to be my blogs this time that were pending.  So, apologies for those of you who still await my replies to your generous comments on my last post. I am hoping to get around to responding shortly to all, and have made a start.

This is how the weeds had grown in a couple of weeks, and the rest of the allotments were the same.

But sometimes we just have to follow the flow, and for the moment, I need to pour my attention into planting and sowing for the moment. 

The older we get the more effort it takes and sometimes I am just too tired to do anything else other than stare into space and enjoy the solitude and quiet space as I empty my head which we all of us need after spending time hoeing and weeding between beetroot and parsnips seedling. So in the afternoons I have been meditating and sleeping, rejuvenating and going within the flow of Now. 

This view looks down to the sheds and there is more of the plot behind the sheds, which gives you the scale of our plot.

Please know that I will get around to your comments and eventually your blogs, but for now I need to honour my body as I find all I want to do is sleep.  So, I am Just going with the flow as I get caught up with what needs doing in our home and our allotments.  

Fruit bushes now weeded between since this photo.

Have a beautiful weekend and remember. ENJOY THE NOW OF YOUR MOMENTS, for we take so very much our Now Moments for granted.

Love and Blessings and hope to be back to normal blogging very soon.

Stepping Back, to Step Forward.

 

Taking a step back often feels like you have somehow failed, but in not stepping back I would be failing myself.

It’s hard this internal knowing, when you have no words to describe what it is you understand. It’s like you have spent years gathering together the various bits and pieces of a giant jigsaw puzzle in your mind. Each piece comes along at various points in your life and you have to juggle them about to see if they fit.

Then all at once you get one piece that slots into place and all the other pieces which you held suddenly now all fit into place. And yet you are still trying to make sense of what it is you are putting together, because we don’t have a picture box lid to understand just what kind of finished picture we are creating.

I felt the jumble of the pieces suddenly make sense, and in the next instant it felt like a huge wind had come along, and the pieces scattered in a thousand directions. I felt such a void of confusion, sadness and pain. 

Pain for a world that is caught up within its own journey, as we each try to make sense of the pieces we hold.

The pain of my heart transferred itself quickly into fatigue as I  found myself shutting down, and shutting out the world more and more as I slept, slipping into a void of depression, a feeling I know only too well. And were it not for family, friends, and my granddaughter’s wonderful presence, it’s a void I know I could easily slip into again if I were not mindful of the signs.  But I have been to the depths of despair many years ago now. And never again will I plunge back into that deep dark well.   

So, my smile is ever present as I keep positive in the face I present to the world. I took my mind into that tranquil zone, I painted, and I painted some more.  I allowed the painting to absorb and transform those feelings. For I also have come to understand that other forces are at work, as our Light codes and energies are adjusting as the Geomagnetic Storms now intensify their frequencies which in turn are affecting our moods and health and our DNA.  I painted out my heart as I faced my fears as I raced into the unknown.  I painted, as the snow fell outside, the snow transferred to the canvas, or was it water? Both cleansing, I will let you decide.

I know I am not the only one who has been going through the emotional washing machine. We have been tossed around, wrung out, to feel drained and left to feel crumpled and limp in the face of feeling helpless to that which we see occurring around our world and our neighbourhoods.  Wondering where it is all leading, and for those of us like myself, we wonder if our energies will  ever make a difference.

Stepping back, pausing and taking that deep breath away from the constant bombardment of negative news allows us to view life from a different perspective. 

Those who read my posts regular, know I am a great believer in ‘Signs’ my recent posts were trying to make sense of that ‘Knowing’ some of us feel. So, it was no surprise that over this period of time I had a ‘Sign’ come and visit me not once but three times in as many weeks. As a Sparrow Hawk which is a rare sight at the best of times, landed not once, but three separate times into my garden as she hunted the sparrows I feed. She has been coming on an off since January when I first took a photo of her or him. But since I have been absent from WP she landed three more times in full view in my garden.  

Her presence came to remind me to lift my own wings and concentrate upon raising my own higher vibrations. So, I have been meditating more. She taught me to lift myself higher, and look from another perspective, to that which I had allowed myself to wallow in… the pain of others and other people’s stories. Showing me while we are all of us connected, I need not take on their pain.  

For each of us agreed what roles to play, be it a Hawk a predator or a Sparrow its victim. She came to show me I should not get hung up on the details of life, but trust to the currents to which way the wind catches my wings.  I saw how the Sparrows cleverly avoided her clutches, as they flew into the thick branches of my shrubs and how all the sparrows along with blackbird cried out their warnings of her arrival.  I saw how unity of species played a part in their survival and now how they have altered their feeding habits in mindfulness of the hawks presence. I see how some keep guard and watch, while others feed. I also observed how some are selfish and fight fiercely to possess the feeder not giving an inch. Nature is a constant reminder of our fight for survival. And when the snow came, we helped nature along. 

Snow in my Garden March 18th 2018 Last Sunday

The Hawk has a wider view of the world than ourselves, and reminds me to broaden my own perspective and to trust and let go to the Winds of Change.  Being Empathic I feel at times raw emotions as their currents ebb and flow through humanity, I also feel the cosmic energies that pulsate which are coming to open up our hearts.

I think this is my longest ever absence since I started blogging in 2007. I started out wanting to make a difference as my words rippled out, and during my recent void I wondered what possible difference I could make.  And yet by reading the many comments you have all left me over time. I see how my poems have touched you and how connected we all are in this our Earth Journey.  

I could write thousands of words and never come to express that which I have come to understand of our human self and our existence on planet Earth. Nor could I ever explain what I have learnt through the years of my Spiritual involvement via the communications I have been privileged to part of and witness. 

Those of you who are upon their own Soul Journey, know of what I speak, others perhaps have yet to soar to find their own flight paths, for we are all of us at our various levels of evolution as we fly in our ever-expanding circles as we search and explore our own destinies, and make sense of who we are and why we are here.  

At the time of writing this I have no idea how long I shall be flying, it may be a matter of days, or another few weeks. And I thank all of you for your patience, especially those comments still in moderation waiting to be answered. Thank you those who have sent me your beautiful emails. I will be answering all of them over time.  

All of you are loved and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for the love you share and show me here, words never seem enough in appreciation. But you are all greatly loved and I feel Blessed for having you all in my world.   

Sometimes we may not make sense of the way we view events of our world. But some events acts as triggers, that change the perspective of others. The Hawk came to show me there are no victims. For we all came to play our parts. 

I did tune in yesterday and saw how 17 lives lost on the 14th February were not lost in vain. If a country with a young generation of all creeds and races can come together in Unity to stand up and voice their views.

This world is on track.

I see Unity Consciousness working right there in the eyes and hearts of the next generation that will have to stand strong and firm in their beliefs, as their courage comes together to create the kind of world they wish to live in.  And the ‘Knowing’ I see within my heart will be worth the sacrifice of those who agreed their particular parts so that Humanity may evolve through Love. 

Hawks are masters of flying, they enjoy the landscape, I need to soar a while longer as I adjust my energies as I ‘Paint Pictures’, as I accept ‘What will be will be’. (Que Sera, Sera).

In Love and Light 

Resting in Silence

Dear friends, 

I find myself this past week feeling so very depleted and tired. Even though my acupuncturist did her work upon me mid week, which normally revives me, I feel constantly tired.

So  I need to rejuvenate in the stillness of my own Sanctuary for a while.

 I am following what my body says I need right now. So I am taking  more time out to rest.

Spring is on the horizon and its been a long, long winter. We all of us at times have to make a choice to rest and take a break.  I need to gather my strength and refocus upon my Pathway. Nature is calling me into her hands for healing. If only to sit among the new shoots that are pushing their way through the ground.  I need to breathe in her nectar. 

 

Sending LOVE and Light to you my  dear friends  

Akiane and her soothing words can explain it better than I what it is I need right now, along with her beautiful art and words below.  

[Comments are Closed]

But your love is felt.

Thank You 

 

My Roar

We may all of us from time to time feel like we are walking alone along our lonely roads, as we feel the world close in around us. We may feel there is no place left to run except to inside one’s own self.

But when we join with other hearts who are also searching, we find we are no longer walking a lonely path, because others are walking alongside us in unity, sharing their love. We then find we are not alone in our feelings, because others are also feeling exactly what we are feeling. We then join with other  heart centred beings, and find we are far from alone. It is then our united voices suddenly become heard.

When our roars and our thoughts unite, we suddenly become stronger, we no longer feel so alone as we overcome our difficulties. We then become like Lions.

I truly believe that in the majority of hearts lies love. I see it in various events that once in a while trigger our human hearts to speak out. And when we allow our hearts to rule instead of our heads, I see hope for the future. We perhaps see a world who on the surface appear to be indifferent and uncaring who have become numbed to the killing machines of the world, because killing has become part of their normal every day experiences.

But that comes from Seeing the world from our various perspectives. We in the western world who are witnessing changes on the global scales through our communication devices see the world through a different pair of eyes to those of lets say, the indigenous tribes. And yet our own life styles are now encroaching in on those indigenous tribes, whose day to day living is now being threatened through our greed.  As oceans become polluted, fish die, habits are destroyed. Deforestation is devouring land, while water levels rise and animal extinctions are on the increase. We are all held within Natures Balance and each action has a reaction. 

We call this progress, as our technological gadgets bring communication of world events ever closer. It seems that in such a short space of time we have managed to turn our world upside down as we have had our hand in so much destruction. Because we all like our ‘Things’ and creature comforts. 

So,  as those who read here regularly know, I retreated into my own space, and I re-read again the pages from a book my daughter had gifted me after her returning from South Africa and a visit to Global White Lion Protection Trust  and as I stared into the picture on the cover and upon the Tarot Deck of Cards  she also gifted me as I stared into the eyes of a Lion.  I just had to paint him as the words of wisdom from its Author Linda Tucker stuck a chord within me from the book The Lion Hearted Leadership™ The 13 Laws  I recommend reading. 

It is no coincidence that throughout time Lions have been chosen as Symbol Totems of strength, courage and bravery. You will see their images on Flags, Crests and buildings. Lions have been part of our various cultures for thousands of years, from Egypt to Greece. From Asia to Africa.

Kings have been named with the heart of Lions.  Even many Popes have taken the name of Leo. You will even find Lions prominent  in the USA as I discovered through researching that even the statue of Ulysses S. Grant Memorial in Washington D.C. is flanked by four Lions.

You may remember the Lion Cecil who was hunted down and killed and how his death sparked not only outrage, but how so many around the world so quickly united their hearts, bringing the worlds attention to Guns and their various uses, and the plight of lions who we are in real danger of extinction.

As Linda Tucker explains in her book this was also an event timed to perfection by the Star calendar dates in the constellations in Astrology. The White Lions the Star Children bringing us together in one voice.  What we do to Nature, are we not also doing to ourselves? And are not the Lions warning us through their own threat of extinction, that of our own future extinction?

But the Lion’s symbol reminds us all we are stronger than we think. Recently I withdrew back into my den, to gather inner strength. For sometimes we feel we are alone in our empathy, feeling helpless and alone on our pathway, thinking with all the love in the world it is not going to change the destructive path mankind seems to heading as we pollute our planet, cut down our trees, pollute our oceans and rivers, and kill species to the point of extinction. Not content with all of that, we are also polluting our minds!

And yet, we have also seen how tragic events have united people who once thought themselves alone. They have united their voices to stand up speaking their speak, as they overcome their fear.  We have seen the powerful fall, as Unity, Truth and Justice prevail. The most powerful tool we have is to unite in love.

You dear friends and followers have the greatest weapons at your disposal, you deploy it all the time with your own compassion and love. You share if often with me here, with your love and encouraging comments. This tool it is not a weapon cast in metal, but your mettle will be tested, time and time again.  This weapon we each hold, is the Power of Love. We have to reach inwards to our hearts, we have the weaponry to destroy the sickness that is sweeping the world. The sickness of indifference and not caring. The weapon is our Hearts.

Because if we do not start to care and live from our hearts instead of our heads, by turning a blind eye, we then all become guilty as if we were pulling the triggers, and if we were cutting down habitats and polluting oceans with mountains of plastic. We have to look within and begin to change our ways too. It all comes back to changing our selves.

Some may think we are too far down the rabbit hole to return.  I don’t believe this to be case, I’ve seen it in the passion of our younger generations eyes. I’ve seen their strength of their determination. I’ve seen them in their unity as they pull together. I see them speaking out and taking action while speaking out as they see the state of our world needs to change, from guns, to equality, racism and abuse to climate change and pollution.  I am inspired because these young hearts are our future world. They are now finding the courage to speak their speak.

Sometimes it takes tragedy and chaotic times to instigate change. Is it not time we dug deep into our own hearts, to seek out our own courage, and not be afraid to speak out. To not fear change, for change is evolution in the making. But not at the cost of lives or our environment. We need to build community spirit, not keep them living in fear.

At times we need to roar out our outrange at injustice, inequality, abuse and cruelty to Humans and our Animal Kingdom.

But we also need to have the courage to take those first steps as we put our own house in order and look closely at our own judgments our own prejudges as we reflect upon our own faults. To look at our own habits that as consumers we too contribute to our plastic environment that is polluting our oceans and planet.

Nature finds her balance, regenerating and adapting to change, isn’t it time we too found our balance and reconnected with our hearts?

Can a Leopard Change its spots? Can we change our ways?

How many of us put ourselves down, and tell ourselves we are not good enough, as we measure ourselves against others achievements.  Especially if we have been brought up lacking in self-worth.

I know many times I have measured myself, against others whom I feel are gifted and blessed with their specific talents.

But at the same time, I  grew up also with the words of my father ringing in my ears, as he would tell me when I said I couldn’t do something, that there was no such word as can’t. And he was right, for if we do not try, we will never know what we can accomplish.

I grew achieving many things I never thought I would. And as I walked my walk, I also understood something else. That no one is better or beneath  us, for we are all of us Human Beings, who are here to learn and grow via our merits or our mistakes.  Some of my greatest achievements, have been through the errors I have made, because they have taught me so much more about the skills of life. 

I have learnt to knit, sew, dress make, grow vegetables, I have, papered, painted and decorated our home. I have laid lino- linoleum in our bathroom and learnt to crochet.  I learnt how to use a computer, often through trial and error.    And I learnt as I grew as an adult that we are all of us equal.   For we each of us have our own unique gifts.

Drawing was my first love, and yet I still measure my capabilities against others whom in my eyes are far more gifted than I. As I never had any kind of art training. I just paint what  I feel. 

 Many of us Self sabotage ourselves at the first hurdle. As we give up, feeling we are not good enough.  We either lack confidence, or are simply insecure and afraid of striding out in a new direction.  We  are all special and need to accept the gifts we have, be it a listening ear, or a musical voice, or a bright smile and a bubbly personality. Each of us are special and unique.  

 Leopard came to remind me and teach me. She came to show me confidence and perseverance, as I had always put off drawing a Leopard because of its spots.. Fearing I would not do it justice, and fearing it would be a failure. And was why when I  started to paint it, I put off painting the spots on its head straight away. This was the Image I was working from, as I looked through one of my wildlife photography books from my book shelf. As you can see it’s not that clear, and the spots are hard to define. As this Sunset photo from Untamed  by Steve Bloom shows . 

Image from the book UNTAMED,By Steve Bloom~ Wild Life Photographer.

Leopard came to remind me that I need to trust in the skills I have, and to accept my spots, my imperfections. She came to show me through your own appreciation of my art, that I need to appreciate my own talents more, and to stop putting myself down.  And she comes to remind me, and perhaps you also, as you find yourself reading this, that it is never to late to apply yourself as you follow your dreams.

Leopard also came to remind me that I have also been putting off another project that I set the intention this year to start. And that was to put some of my poetry together in the hopes of publishing it. I made that start, then I guess I self-sabotaged it, and deleted much of what I had written to accompany my poetry.

Nearly finished. I had more detail on the branch to do. As I concentrated on adding details to the branch. The pathway of Life.

I guess its time I stepped out along that branch of life, and put my faith in the steps I need now to follow to bring that particular gift into the Light.

Thank you All, for being part of my journey as I rediscover and apply myself in unfamiliar territory.

 And as the Buzzard whom I saw the other week, In the post ‘Look up and Soar’ spoke to me, saying ““( …… It is time to soar above your perceived limitations. Are you currently undergoing an internal death and rebirth cycle? Are you ready to assert your actions from your ideas?……)

Leopard came to make me sure I heard and tell me to lay down my fears. And yes I am ready. 

I hope as you walk through your life, you can also lay down your fears and boldly put one foot in front of the other, as you focus your Intent on your Dreams!

Are YOU Ready? 

The Finished Leopard
More details were added to the branch, adding moss, and new life out of dead wood.

Art in the Making.

I thought I would share with you some of what I have been creating over the last couple of weeks.. And why I have not been such a regular visitor perhaps to your blog posts.

My art has taken hold of my Heart again, and I am enjoying just vanishing into oblivion for a while as my paints touch the canvas.

While I have created a few watercolours,  I wanted to do a larger canvas. This is in Acrylic paints. 

I had no idea at first what I wanted to paint.. But as I love cats, and have created quite a few in my time, if you scroll down to the right hand side of my side bar you will find many of them.   I thought how about a Big Cat.. 

This is far from finished, but you get the idea. 

Have a Magical Sunday and a Beautiful New week. 

Love and Blessings

~Sue~

Anyone for Tennis?

Hello beautiful people, it has been a while since I did an update on my blog.. Summer is speeding by and I am making the most of these wonderful Sunny Days here in the UK..  Life is for living, and enjoying and that is exactly what I have been doing.. Spending time with family, and enjoying several birthday celebrations, and of course the allotments have been getting lots of attention with picking berries, and preparing produce for the freezer..

I also started a knitting project too, which has stopped my hands from pounding the keyboard of an evening. A project in progress that has the back and one front completed..

Tennis too has been on the agenda, and no, I am not that sprightly, lol, but may invest in a swing ball for the lawn, as I know one little lady who will enjoy the game with me..  But Wimbledon is on for another week, and you will find me most afternoons watching Tennis this next week, as I root for my favourite Tennis Stars.  So I have been up extra early and down the gardens before it warms up and gets too hot to work.

So as I share lots of photo’s over on my gardening blog on the progress on the allotments.. For a change, I will share a little of the allotments here with you.

 

Enjoy, and I will I hope gradually work my way down the reader and find you.

And remember to love, laugh, and BE Happy..

See you Soon! 

Creativity in Art and ~ The WOMAN

On one rainy afternoon  I wanted to paint, yet as reached up into the top of my cupboard for a new canvas, out popped among them was this old painting I did when I was messing about one day quite a few years ago now.  

I had never really liked the painting, and have never hung it, but I had hidden it away among my new canvas’ thinking one day I would paint over it. 

Rainbow Angel.. Some of my more abstract art I did several years ago

I looked hard at it and thought well today is the day to rework it..  And as I painted I jotted down my thoughts as different feelings raced through my mind as I altered it to become the finished new painting you see below at the bottom of this post.. 

Here are the words that came to me while painting and when I had finished it.. They speak of the returning feminine energies, and how each of us hold these energies whether we are female or male…    So I give you.. 

The Woman

 

The Woman with closed eyes sits in the circle of dancing light

She breathes in her femininity as she let go of all material form

Naked, she pulls around her energy cloak of rainbows as she prepares her Earth Song

She holds out her hands softly at her sides.

As she rocks gently back and forth, listening to her beating heart.

It matches its rhythm with that of her Earth Mother.

Generations before her have awaited

this time, when the feminine will rise again.

Their Compassion, love and strength will bring back the light from the shadows of the past

~~

The Woman focuses her inner vision upon the Stars, and her low hum begins to fill the vortex of space surrounding her Aura.

With Dancing spectrum’s that spin in a Kaleidoscope of changing hues. Mixing and blending, the Woman weaves each thread with the notes of Love.

Each Chord a blend of forgiveness to each deed against the feminine energies. Her face is still, almost translucent as she let go of Anger, bitterness and sorrow.

The woman is no longer tied to the Earth but becomes detached from All Fear

Replenishing her emotions only with Love , Acceptance and Gratitude

The Vortex spins ever faster as time slips away, She gives thanks for all she has been and to all she is yet to become.

Knowing infinity will hold her forever in the moment of Now..

Each of us, carries within us the capacity to change the world in small ways for better or worse. Everything we do and think affects the people in our lives, and their reactions in turn affect others As the effect of a seemingly insignificant word passes from person to person, its impact grows and can become a source of great joy, inspiration, anxiety, or pain. Your thoughts and actions are like stones dropped into still waters, causing ripples to spread and expand as they move outward.. I hope that I can send a few ripples out via the web of life, as we each of us weave the threads together... Welcome to my Sanctuary of Peace and Love... May we each spread our Lights around our World....Sue Dreamwalker
