How does your Garden Grow?

Just wanted to update you how things in the garden are progressing, some days I have been so tired I have slept in the afternoons, especially in this heat we are not used to this time of year.. It’s definitely growing weather for weeds which have invaded the garden along with aphids, white fly, and a bug which flew in from Europe which is spreading fast throughout the UK.  To view all the news and pictures  please click the link HERE   On my garden blog.

 

 

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

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.

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

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!

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

Mother Gaia ~ The Blue Dot.

Three Sisters Scotland

Three Sisters Glen Coe Scotland

How many times have you gazed at the stars?

To ask the question of whom we are

This Blue Dot in the vastness of space

Have you questioned the existence of the Human Race?

~~

Did we really evolve from Neanderthal Man?

From Ape to Human imagine if you can

Woolly Mammoths along with Sabre Tooth Tigers

Ice Ages and Floods, Volcanoes and Fires

~~

Mountains crashing, rising from ocean floors

Fossils created into stony forms

Petrified wood in glaciers saved

While Crystals grow beneath deep dark cave

~~

How many times have you asked ‘Who am I?’

As you gaze longingly at the starlit sky

So many treasures now upon this Blue Dot

So sad that we’ve evolved, but we also forgot

~~

That we Humans just like the Dinosaur race

Could soon disappear without a trace

As our superior brains seemed to have lost the plot

Of our coexistence within this amazing Blue Dot

~~

As we pollute our Mother who brings such life

While we rage in greed creating more strife

We poison our land modifying crops

Caring less and less until the last Bee drops

~~

Long after we’re gone as the planets realign

A new dawn will break over the memory of mankind

His legacy I’m sure one day will be discovered

As some future traveller his fossils will uncover.

~~

But it’s never too late to alter our future

When we live in harmony and learn to nurture

Holding onto LOVE and Letting go of Hate

We can all help our Blue Planet Regenerate.

The above slide show are the photo’s I took that inspired the poem above. They were taken in Scotland where I visited a crystal and mineral centre near Fort William. It was a delightful find holding a wealth of Treasures of The Earth which can be found here.

There is so much more that lays hidden beneath our Earth Mother, as well as within ourselves.

If only we dig deep enough to find the Treasures Within.  

Love and Blessings

I am still digging Deep How about You?

Many Thanks to you ALL.

My Dear WordPress family,

 

Thank you for your tremendous support and welcome back, after my absence. And I so thank you for all of your contributions which you make to this blog with your encouraging comments and visits..

It is you that keeps me blogging and it is you that makes this blog what it has become today.. So thank you, all of you.

This last week has been a little hectic as I try to condense time into manageable  ‘Bites’  as I flit through your blogs as I attempt to catch up.. And how frustrated I became when pages wouldn’t load and my computer kept freezing. Another Lesson the Universe thought to teach me.

Most all of you know how I love my garden.. And being outdoors. And this next week there are lots of things yet to get sorted in the allotments as well as my home garden. I need this connection with our Earth Mother, for it she that breathes life into my lungs, and heals me. So I need to spend lots more time working her soil and tending her plants.

I am working my way down the list of those I have not yet called in on since my  vacation. But this is taking extra time due to the still reoccurring page freezes that are happening less but still occurring. But this is taking time, as I love reading your posts and love commenting upon them…

You can see what my Hubby and I have been up to since our return on my Garden Blog, which has sadly got very neglected also.

To see what We have been doing is but One click away HERE and it is in Picture format for easy viewing.  So I hope you can see what time has to be spent in preparing such a huge plot of land for growing food.

 

 Thank you all of you for reading and

Have a wonderful week..

Love and Blessings

Sue

Vision Quest part 3

To continue the story of Muna, who was having recurring nightmares, her Grandmother Aponi had suggested she go off on a Vision Quest to confront her Demons. Aponi had taught Muna the Ancient ways of her tribe and so Muna had set off up into the mountains for her Vision Quest.

Parts One and Two can be found HERE

The story continues:

The Ceremony Begins. 

Aponi had taught Muna well, saying the Medicine Wheel was a physical representation of the sacred circle that encompassed all life., that it had outer manifestation and inner force.  On a deeper level it represented the Universe and all matter that which was animate and inanimate. It represented Life, Death and rebirth,  she told Muna she must separate the circle into four segments, each segment represented the elements, Fire, Air, Water and Earth. And each were represented by the Four Directions of the compass.

So Muna set off in search of some stones she took well over an hour searching and feeling the energy of the stones and placed them in a large circle and divided the centre into four segments, next she opened up her bag and took out some of the things she had hurriedly packed at dawn.

She brought out a bundle of Sage, a lighter some tobacco, and a small white candle. Muna also had a locket which was her prized possession she unwrapped carefully from the coloured silk kerchief which she always kept it in.  Lovingly she places this within the circle. She took out a small jar which held some cornmeal and sprinkled some in the circle symbolising protection and abundance. Lastly was her Dream-catcher which she placed beside the medicine wheel.

Muna looked around at the flowers, wondering if she should pick some to place within the circle too.. But she knew the moment she picked them, their life would be extinguished, so Muna silently sent up a prayer offering instead the beauty of the mountain flowers all around her and offered the circle her tobacco which is sacred to the Great Spirit, saying “Grandfather sky and Grandmother Earth, protect my sacred circle with love, that I may find my answers”.

She now looked around her at the beauty of Mother earth as she looked high into the blue sky, and saw the glint of the sun on the lake far below.. The Vision Quest was about to start.

“Make this your ritual Muna, go with your own instincts I have told you how, but you follow your own guidance and thoughts, this is your ceremony” Aponi had said as Muna had packed her bag that morning. She now lit the sage bundle and blew on it until the embers glowed red, she took the sage bundle and moved it around her head and over her body, smudging herself and allowing the smoke to flow around and about her body. Muna felt the urge to hum, and started to sing one of the songs she often heard Aponi singing, She smiled to the sky and she offered her love to the Earth, and placed the cornmeal and the tobacco in the centre of the circle sprinkling more, still smudging herself and her circle. “Be sure to sing out loud and speak out so that the Spirit People can hear you” Aponi had said.. “ you need to wake them up, tell them how beautiful they are and wait and sense them Muna, you will sense their presence.”.

Shining Through

This morning I awoke to rain, but this gave me a great excuse to open my box of paints..

Today I used Acrylics and had no idea what I wanted to paint.. I had an angel in mind to start with, then a I kept looking at the butterfly I painted last weekend.. I started with the swirl of bright yellow and just kept going with the flow, adding more swirls and then I saw in my mind a mandala.. It didn’t turn out how my mind had envisioned it.. But the mandala became the butterfly..

The Trees have been taking their fair share of battering’s here in the UK recently with some very stormy weather so I wanted to honour the trees, who listen so patiently to my whispers..

You can see more of my Tree Art and a poem I wrote about trees on my post My Creative Art~ Trees  The first verse reads

oh mighty brothers that reach up high

Your branches swaying in breeze from sky

Tell me as I sit beneath your shade

What wisdom have you for me today….

This is part of Tom’s over at Beyond the Sphere  who set a challenge for April, anyone wishing to take part in producing a post with the theme of ‘Shining Through’ to be found Here ..

I wish you all a beautiful weekend..

Take care all of you.

Love and Blessings

We Journey On

 

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.

Our Minds can create such webs of thought that entrap up within the negative if we are not mindful of being drawn in to the Fear we each hold.. Even the best of us can get caught among the threads of our own thoughts, a lesson well learned recently.

May we all learn to create Peace and Love in our lives. 

Wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday 

And I hope you enjoy this Video and the above poem I wrote.. 

Blessings 

~Sue~
