Garden of Life!

I hope you have all had a wonderful Easter Break.

May I just thank all who are my regular readers here for all of your wonderful contributions to comments I appreciate you all. Also may I say welcome to all new followers  which have been many who have joined this year. I hope you enjoy browsing and reading.

Over the Easter weekend, we have spent many hours in our garden, planting seeds and weeding out.. So time for writing a new post has been limited.. So looking for inspiration I looked through my WP archives and came upon this aptly named post. Which I will re-schedule and post again .. Enjoy..

 

 Today I was reminded once again about Seeds, as I was updating and deleting many of my  Old Word Documents today I came across this piece I wrote back in 2007. And as nothing is ever by Chance!  It was part of a post I did on a forum. It didn’t have a title and I can’t even remember if I posted it .. But I will give it a title today..

Scattered Seeds of Thought.

Are we not all seeds? Have we not all been scattered?

Some may have fallen upon what is termed ‘the good earth’.

Whereby some may feel they have had all the benefits of a rich material upbringing.

Some seeds scattered may have felt they missed the ploughed furrow, the less fortunate circumstances,  but have still had a good foundation in which to grow.

And others have fallen upon the rocky edges where they have struggled to extend their roots to draw upon the nourishment and courage to grow, and have shriveled in their insecurities.

While others get entangled within the weeds, as they flounder, seeking to find themselves but being overshadowed by others until the wheat is no longer recognizable.

We may feel that it is the farmer’s hand of fate which determines where we shall fall?

But does not every seed have within it the same potential of growth?

Does not each seed no matter upon which ground it falls extends its roots downward searching for that nourishment which to feed from?

Does it still not lift its head and bend searching for the light?

Each of us has that potential to grow to bloom no matter what path we find ourselves upon.

I have witnessed many beautiful flowers that have fallen into crevices upon my concrete pathway, which I have marveled that they have taken root and bloomed.

And I have often wondered at the strength of the weed, as I have seen the dandelions push there way through solid tarmac growing healthily and strong.

And I have planted many a good plant in good fertile earth, fed and fussed over it, only to have it wilt and die

We have many fertile fields awaiting us. And that there are millions of different seeds we can sow.

But we must bring to our attention to the seed within, the strength we need to find starts within that centre of our Being.

To unfold ourselves to the warmth of the sun

We need to reach forever upward to allow ourselves to absorb that life giving

‘Light’.

It is only ourselves that give us Labels. It is only ourselves who determines what is a weed and what is a flower..

Within Our Earth Mothers Garden we are all equal in beauty all of us grow from the same beginnings.. We each of us start life as  a seed..

The Harvest of Life is  soon about to show us 

What we Sow, so shall we Reap..

May we Keep Planting LOVE, HARMONY and PEACE.

What Energy are we Transmitting?

A quick watercolour I did in February when affected by the Beached Whales in NZ Link HERE

Many whom I have spoken  to lately have said how stressed and frustrated they have felt recently. The energies that are circulating are powerful, as they are awakening us to look at things from a higher perspective..

Those who are meant to move through these Changes will, and are finding themselves opening up to emotions. For some this is bringing up past events as they clear through their layers of collective baggage we have accumulated. Each layer we peel back exposes more hidden layers as we move through our emotional body.

I have not escaped these energetic frequencies either and my own recent dip was due to an overload in absorbing surrounding energies.. When you are aware of Energies, and are also aware that we are also made up of Energy, you then see we are more than just flesh and bone. And that our bodies hold a frequency, one that resonates and affects our senses.

If you think of ourselves as being both transceivers as well as transmitters, we are like our own mini radio stations. What ever we tune into we pick up that particular radio wave. Be it positive or negative. Its up to us which band we tune into. And to what station we want to play out to others.

My road to recovery from my own recent dip in depression and my FMS re-occurrence of pain, showed me just how I was allowing the outside world to affect my inner world.. Dis-ease of the mind was creating again Disease of the body.

Working with my inner self again, Meditating more, doing my Qi Gong, working with my wonderful acupuncture therapist  to work with meridians that were blocked, to release suppressed Anger. And of course connecting back with my creative self,  painting again  as well as walking out in nature to connect and ground myself back with our Earth Mother, I now feel much brighter and more energised.

Working upon our inner self is the most important thing we can do to help the outer world. We do so by nurturing ourselves, knowing that we are all connected. And that our Hearts are key players in unifying our energies..

If we are seeing the outer-world in chaos and conflict, in confusion and division. We must ask ourselves why is that?. We have only to look around to see just how separated we are becoming from one another. People no longer communicating face to face.. preferring Text messages, and social media.. Is it any wonder we are losing our connection. As we pick up static from the many media distractions that bombard every day living.

We are forgetting to live from our hearts, and love the things which are so important. Family, Nature. and most importantly ourselves.

The world acts as a mirror.. and reflects back to us what what we put out there.

Even Nature is a reflection of the whole. And she is speaking to us Constantly, yet we are failing to Listen.

For we are each a Part of the Whole..

We are ONE.

I found a great 10 minute explanation of how our Hearts affect the world, and how the frequencies we hold affect the world.. And how its been scientifically measured. And when the world tuned in to the events of 9-11 how the magnetic frequencies of the World Grid changed.

 

If we want the world to change for the better, we have only to look in the mirror and see what energies are we sending out to the world…

Is it love and Joy or is it Anger and Fear?..

And if we think our world is bad..  Think of those around the world who are starving right now in  Nigeria, South Sudan, Somalia and Yemen. Where 20 million are at risk of starvation.. I am sure they would gladly change places with us.

Sending you Rainbows of LOVE

The Elder~ Shedding of Skins~ Part3

Things with Wings

Things with Wings

The woman had to leave the painting alone for a while, but the Elder was never far from her thoughts as she pondered upon what the Elder had spoken of regarding the Renewing and Regenerating.

She thought about her beloved forest walks and in particular the Standing Ones of the Oak Tribe who had always drawn her to their energy.

On her walks she would often reach out to touch their bark, their outer skin, gnarled and cracked, marveling upon their ages.

The forest of Sherwood that she loved so well held one of the oldest and well known, The Major Oak  Whose Standing had seen so many changes during at least 1,000 years reign over his domain.  She thought of the changes still to come as she had signed petitions to try to prevent Fracking from under his roots.  She again sent a silent prayer out to her Earth Mother as she thought of all the destruction Mankind had caused upon and deep into her own Earth Crust skin.

The Major Oak is now supported with beams and wires .

The Major Oak is now supported with beams and wires its age is approximated to be over 800 to 1,000 years.. Can you see the Elephant within its trunk?

By the time the woman returned to pick up her brushes, the woman was eager to learn what the Elder had to teach her. Today she filled in more details to the bark, the tiny brush strokes making patterns she picked out the creepy crawlies, spiders, and grubs now forming. The woman thought deeply upon the thousands of insects that made their home in the bark and among the crevasses and branches of the Standing Ones.

Trees are home to Thousands of insects and wildlife

Trees are home to Thousands of insects and wildlife

The Elder remained silent, allowing the woman to penetrate each crevasse with her brush stroke as deeper she sank into her own world of thought.  She painted the skin of the snake as it twisted up and out along the branch of the Elder, and thought of the many symbols mankind had used in which the snake had played a part.

ELDER Snake branch

The serpent representing both good and bad.  The secret to a snake’s success was its scales providing both impetus and resistance. It shed many skins to allow it to keep on growing. It glided over everything managing to climb trees, swim and bury itself beneath the earth.  She thought deeper to the various cultures which had created both Fascination and Fear.

 Quetzalcoatl the Feathered Serpent came to mind.

 Scholars had twisted the snake symbol for use of many of their own interpretations. The snake reminding her of the Kundalini, providing the Spark of Life, a great healer in many symbols.  As she thought of her own snake-like-spine, and that of the Standing Ones trunk. Connecting both Heaven and Earth.  As she thought of the times she had meditated her spine pressed against their trunk as she asked for The Standing Ones Healing.

She thought of healing and remembered the medical profession who also had it within their healing symbol The Caduceus entwined around a staff with wings. And the Rod of Asclepius  And wondered upon how these symbols had been created.  She assumed the snake meant both Life and Death which was what the medical professions dealt with at all times.

So many interpretations Mankind had given to the snake, both positive and negative which she had read about, ‘Which were correct?’  she thought.

The Elder picking up on her question answered. “ All of them,” said the Elder, “The snake is neither Good or bad, it is the cycle of Life itself. The Ouroboros  The snake shows you by leaving your skin behind life begins anew. Your Human skin is but a shell and so too will be left behind.

In your world, there can be no birth without death. It is a perpetual cycle.  You will see this again and again in nature. But your Human Tribe do not follow the natural law of the predator-prey cycle. Your Human Tribe has killed all the animals it deems as bad.  Such as the Wolf , Bear and Fox.

Then you cry when your forests get overrun with Deer and Elk and Rabbits. Who then strip the forests and grasslands bare and they then suffer and starve as the balance is upset. You Humans then take it upon yourselves to cull and thin out the over population of species. Causing more suffering”.

She thought of the disease  Myxomatosis introduced to Rabbits  And the many Rabbits she had seen affected as a child in the country. She also thought of the Elephant tribe and wondered at the suffering of their tribe at the hands of mans ignorance and greed. It was no coincidence that the image of the Elephant had crept into her painting embedded within its roots.Or the horrendous culling of young seal cubs that were clubbed to death. This too was woven within the roots of her painting.

“Yet” continued the Elder, “If you had let well alone Nature would keep the balance by its own natural cycles..  Each living thing that is placed upon your Earth Mother has purpose. And is subject to natural law. Including you Humans. But you have long forgotten the natural laws of Cause and Effect. You think you are superior to them. But the Universe as a whole is governed by them, there is no escape.”

This has been digitally enhances to these shades.

As the woman continued to paint, eyes appeared in her imagination which had transferred to the bark which peered deeper into her soul. She thought upon the many times she had sort out the Standing Ones healing. And to the shedding of her many tears pressed up against their trunks. How many sobs had they listened to? never judging, always steadfast, silent but for their whispers on the wind as they imparted their calm reverence.  

They replaced her own sapping energy with their own as she often felt their pulse beat up through her spine. They had become bound by their roots as she imagined her energy tap-root from her spine going down around theirs into Mother Earths Heart as she meditated.

She knew the Standing Ones were the wisdom keepers, each year witnessing the changes, information contained within their own growth cycles of both good and bad years. Each inner ring a record, yet its outer skin/bark remained the same. Showing us how we have so many layers and yet can hold a constant mask to our outer Being.

We all grow from our inner centre outward from our hearts. And how important it was to go within and find those years which had affected our growth.

The woman stood back from her painting. She thanked again the Elder for the wisdom, knowing that as a world right now, we were but shedding another skin. Mankind was in yet another cycle of Learning, growing in inner wisdom as he woke up to himself.

Expectations..

A Review of our Thinking.. 

 

As each year comes to an end we are often heard to say thank goodness as we say goodbye to a year that when it began started out with every expectation. Yet here we are again as we herald in another New Year as we wish and expect so much more from the year before.

 We make promises to ourselves that this year we will endeavour to  be healthier, as we start new fitness regimes, and as we say goodbye to our bad habits. Promises often we never keep up.   

We are all of us walking, searching to find ourselves and that which fulfills us. We constantly search outside of ourselves to bring us that feeling of happiness. Be it in our relationships, careers or through our possessions. We gather everything to us holding onto them, thinking all of these external things are what will bring us happiness.

So, we constantly strive, putting ourselves under pressure, working extra hours,seeking to gather yet more things we probably never really needed to fill up a yearning hole inside of us that cries out to feel complete.

I look around my own home at the ‘Things’ that I have gathered over the years, my glass paperweights from the countries I visited, my record collection, the books that I have read and re-read as I have searched the pages for wisdom to that which more of us are seeking which we call enlightenment.

Most times we are our own worst enemies, as our scattered thoughts distract us from finding our peaceful path we are all seeking whether we realise it or not.

We all too often look back and blame others for our failings, or we worry about our futures as our inner chatter is constantly pulling us down. Telling us we are not good enough, clever enough or we put things off saying when the children leave home, next year or when I retire..  We continually make excuses to ourselves as to why we do not keep those promises to ourselves.

I keep saying I am going to write a book.. Yet I make excuses to myself each year, putting it off.. I am no different from anyone else..

 Our Ego makes us defensive about our weakness’s often making us feel unworthy. We take on hurts and wounds as we take to heart other people’s opinions of us. We listen to gossip and then add our own two pennies worth to the mix..  

Our Inner Chatter often spills out in irritations as we then verbalise our dissatisfaction. Causing arguments and resentments as our pride is dented, so we bite back, lashing out with more words that wound.

We then carry guilt, holding it deep within, nurturing it as we feed that inner chatter with justification as to why we are right and others are wrong. It then festers deeper into resentment and anger bubbles turning inward into bitterness.  

We now not only hold onto our personal stuff, but as the world grows closer in its communication systems we get embroiled in politics and the weight then of the negative news that is being poured into our homes in hourly bulletins also weighs us further down..  
All of these emotions bite deep within us effective our energy body causing our dis-ease with self, allowing illnesses to manifest. Often our body kicks in as a last resort to stop us in our tracks. It’s trying to get our attention to alter our thinking and ways of being. So our body rebels with aches and pains.. As we push it too hard and we fail to nourish it and give it rest.. 

My own nervous breakdown and subsequent FMS years ago was my body’s wake up call.. Which was telling me to slow down and alter course.  All these emotions we carry weigh us down literally DE-Pressings us as our auras get blocked as the energy stops flowing.

One of the greatest lessons is learning to leave things behind as we walk our paths to finding ourselves. This is one of the best gifts we can give ourselves as we start afresh a new year is Letting Go! So we need to let go of our self expectations as well.. Stop forcing things into BEing and just allow things to BE.. Let go of guilt, regrets, anger and jealousies.As you develop patience with others and ourselves, you then begin to see how those you thought were  your enemies were in fact your greatest teachers as they helped strengthen you. 

 Learning that there really are no Cross-roads only those of our own making.. For we are stood in our own centre of our BEingness in our present Moment of Now..Making our own choices. 

Our roads are all leading us to one place. And that is to look inside of ourselves, as we alter our perspective and thinking.   Don’t let fear and anxiety take control of your thoughts… Allow yourself space to breathe. Take yourself out in Mother Nature allow her calm presence to guide you as you unscramble your thoughts.  

For by taking in the beauty of the moment, seeing how very blessed we are,  we then can stand within our own centre of happiness.. Its been right here inside of us all along.. Within our Hearts. But we got so busy with ‘Things’ We lost our Hearts connection. 

Our Futures are in our hands as we begin another year.. Let us keep those promises to ourselves.. As we open our hearts to ourselves, forgiving our faults and our failures, as we relearn how to love ourselves..

There is no greater power on this planet than Love.. Its what keeps us from Fear.. Don’t allow Fear to dominate yet another year of Expectations!..

Love and Blessings

Harvesting Goodness

Harvest time is upon us as we reap from our gardens what we have sown. It’s wonderful to see something that you planted from a tiny seed that grows and matures to a full-grown crop.

And haven’t you ever just stopped to think for a moment about those seeds. Just how miraculous they are. Each seed so tiny, yet they know exactly how to grow. Each tiny cell splitting off to become a leaf, petal or fruit. Just as our human cells know which cells form toes and teeth.

Each plant perhaps relying on natures helping hand as the bees pollinate creating new seeds for next year’s seasons

Our Apples

Our Apples

Apples all 5 of them

Apples all 5 of them Smiles

I have so enjoyed this Summer. It started out life here in the UK as being one of the wettest June’s for a long while. It was very cool to start with. Yet despite the cold start Nature catches up. And even though our sweetcorn took 3 attempts to sow this year it too caught up and now we are harvesting the ripe corn cobs

Life is a little like planting. We get to harvest what we have sown. 

I came across a wonderful post from Erika today whose own post was about the seeds we sow in Life.. in her post here entitled  The Challenge of Growth 

How true too about those seeds as Erika  describes them to break down and collapse before they open and bring forth their new growth. I invite you to go read her excellent thoughts on how we ourselves grow through our challenges.

Corn tastle gone to seed Not all can mature perfectly.

Corn gone to seed Not all can mature perfectly.

As I view the world today I see many of our old ways now collapsing, they have to if we are to change.

Everything comes in cycles, Day follows Night, Seasons Change. We look back through history and see how our world has gone through its different ages. It seems we are now in the technological age. One at the moment I seem to in conflict with, big smiles as it seems me and technology are not getting on as well of late.

Not everything in our garden’s can be rosy all the time and in full bloom. But with Love and attention to what is important in our lives as we give our attention to the things which matter. We then reap that which we sow

Begonias in tubs large and small in our front garden.

Begonias in tubs large and small in our front garden.

I ask myself why is that me and techology seem in conflict right now – Could it be the Universe is wanting my attention elsewhere?   I have got much thinking to do at the moment and choices to make.  But I know what ever choice I make, it will be Ok, for there are no right or wrong roads, for all roads lead us to our destinations. It’s just sometimes we can detour off the path and for some they can become lost amid the jungle of choices that in this digital age can distract us from the true seeds we need to sow. Which often are the most basic.

To Care and Share.

We may have forgotten some of  the things that really matter in our lives. As the distractions of this material world have never been greater as they grab our attention and steel our energies and lower our vibrations.

I invite all of you who may be feeling of a low ebb and stressed out with the world right now to reconnect with your inner seed. The one that beats life into you day in and day out. Go into the HEART of Nature and start to listen to your own Heart.

It is patiently waiting for you to understand that all you need do for it to grow and expand to the Light, is for you to nurture it with the best nutrient ever given to man.

LOVE!

Smiling among the Dahlia's.

Sending you huge armfuls of flowers filled with love and gratitude..

Take out your Pen ~ Let the Healing Start

Healing Words Poem

Let the Pen flow across the page

Allow it to release all that pent-up rage

Form the words as they are born in your mind

Feel the Lightness as you let go and unwind

~~

See the Messages we give to ourselves

Pouring out emotions so long-held

Poetry in Motion, Healing at a stroke

As we let go of Anger that we never have spoke

~~

See the patterns that form into words

Voice them on paper, so they can be heard

They say the Pen is Mightier than the Sword

Know their Power, as we cut the cords

~~

Words and Letters may jumble and mix

Once Written out loud they can heal and fix

The long-held wounds we hold in our hearts

So take out your Pen- Let the Healing Start!

I have been busy this week enjoying the garden and these last days of Summer Sun. I have been reading  many posts as I try to catch up this week with many of you.. I am Still way behind.. But the theme I am reading this week as I try to catch up, as we all at times seem to link in via our subconscious thoughts is ‘Healing’ .. Be it from Conflict, Grief, Self Judgement or illness or misunderstandings.. 

Learning to share our concerns  as we voice them with others being through family or friends or just writing them down helps release emotional hurts. As we learn to let them go we begin to heal from within.

One thing I would often do when I was hurting so bad, was to write an Angel Letter.. Pouring out the conflict, self judgement, grief and pain.  Allowing the emotions to flow onto paper.. I would offer up my letter to the Angels and then burn the letter asking that all of that emotion be released as I would ask for forgiveness for all concerned..

Thank you all of you who are travelling along with me in my Dreamwalker Journey I so appreciate your company and friendships . The above poem was penned last year and I thought it apt to add again today..

I also noticed how many more have joined Dreamwalker’s Sanctuary and started to follow recently the numbers have jumped this last couple of weeks who have started to follow I welcome you and please make yourselves known..

Love and Blessings

And I know so many parts of the world need our healing Love right now.

But it all starts with bringing that Love within yourselves

It all Begins with You 

and Healing Your Heart and Loving yourself

Be the Pebble and create Ripples as you Send out your Love

~Sue

Set Yourself Free..

This morning I switched on the radio and the first record I heard was this one.. It was the very first time I had listened to this recording, never hearing it before.. It made me smile.. Especially when it mentioned taking Calcium and taking care of our knees..  So I decided to YouTube it to listen to again and to my delight found several versions.. 

Life has been busy within the Dreamwalker’s Domain this last week.. Last night I was so tired I went to bed at 7pm and slept for 12 hours. 

Today the Universe thought to allow me to cool  down in the showers of rain,  so I thought I would share about my Busy time in the Sun on my Gardening Blog. And to share what brought such a smile to my face first thing this morning.. 

I particularly enjoyed the lyrics in the middle of this narrative of the inclusion of Rozalla’s Song Everybody’s Free to Feel Good, which is an old favourite of mine.. 

 So Go On FEEL GOOD and DANCE.. LAUGH and SING..

And SHARE THE FEEL GOOD FACTOR 

Sending Love and Blessings 

Next time I will share with you the village I grew up in as we went  back to see the Well Dressings.. Along with some of my thoughts..

The Law of Polarity

“To destroy and undesirable rate of mental vibration, put into action The Law of Polarity and concentrate upon the opposite pole to that which you desire to suppress. Kill out the undesirable by changing its polarity.”

The Kybalion.

I often wake up between the hours of 3 and 4am and I’m inspired to pick up my journal and write down my thoughts. This is where the majority of my poems are born as they merge with the invisible realms in the quite hours of less activity with electronic devices.

So the night after I published my post The Pendulum Swings, I awoke to see the clock which showed the triple number of 2:22. These triple numbers regularly occur for me range from 1’s to 5’s. So I smiled knowing I needed to pay attention to my thoughts.

And that thought as I had awoken was the Law of Polarity. I knew I had a book describing this Universal Law somewhere upon my bookshelves

I got up to scan the bookshelves, and the book I was searching for jumped out at me almost straight away. And believe me I often spend ages looking for a book I know is there not being able to find it straight away.

Back in bed, I opened the book expecting to flick through the pages and chapters to find what I wanted. It seemed more forces were at work as I flicked the pages, for when I stopped it fell open at the chapter entitled The Law of Polarity. You can only imagine how wider my smile grew. Excitement always wells within me when I know I am being guided as I gave my silent thank you to those invisible realms which keep showing us the ‘signs’. And I am sure ‘they’ are just as excited when we take notice.

The quote you found at the top of the page started the chapter and for those who may not be familiar with its law. Polarity represents the two extremes of One thing.

As I read the chapter in full and I found it was confirming my thoughts upon the pendulum. We view Poles as opposites, each extreme of each other. Such as Good Bad, Up Down, Love Hate etc.

It was interesting reading as Poles while being opposites only differ in degrees. It spoke of the two extremes of Love and Hate concluding that they are both born of being the two extremes of the same ‘emotion’. Their differences are in the various degrees of the emotion being expressed. 

The chapter ended by emphasizing the need to stay   “‘Balanced’, ‘Focused’ and ‘Detached’ from the World and things around” It reiterated what I have often said among many posts, Balance is the Key as we use the Law of Polarity in the raising of our Vibrations. 

We CAN shift the Balance by degrees

And isn’t that what we see happening now around our world. We are all of us through events, through our responses, of Love and Compassion Can help swing the pendulum in balance.

When we Choose to change our attitudes to those who surround us, through our vibrations of changing ourselves, we then by degrees change the behaviour of others.

The following words jumped out at me as I take a small quote from the Book “ The Light Shall Set You Free” by Dr Norma Milanovich and Dr Shirley McCune

The Power of the mind which controls the emotions, is the key to understanding that ALL things Can Be Changed.  The first step in change is CHOOSING TO DO SO.”

 So dear friends, try to detach from the turmoil of the external world. Focus upon your own internal energy. Stay Balanced and Calm, stay grounded and send out love, by going ‘within’ and by raising your own vibration you are also by degrees each helping change the ‘external’ world to embrace Unity and Peace.

Love and Blessings
