Worlds Within Worlds

The Woman watched the ant struggling as her fork disturbed the soil where she had been clearing weeds.

The unseen world that lived beneath the earth which was oblivious to the human world suddenly awoke, as it was exposed to the Light.

Soon more ants sensing their world was under threat came rushing to the surface ready to defend it. Each ant courageously taking up their positions as they tasted the air. Each one ready to do battle with what must have felt like an earthquake as their whole world was turned upside down.

They swarmed to the surface, a mass of black, running around in what appeared to be confusion. Yet the woman knew they were far from confused and were rapidly assessing the damage and working out how to defend and repair their world. 

The woman squatted down, leaning on her fork as she sat back on her heels, she looked more closely at the mass of ants. She took off her gardening glove to wipe her hand across her brow as the heat of the Sun rose in the morning sky.

As she did, she noticed that an ant must have run up the fork handle and was already on her wrist. She made an involuntary movement with her other hand as she went to brush the ant off her hand, and in a split second the ant was no more. She said a silent sorry to the insect kingdom as she had unintentionally killed the lone soldier ant with her automatic reflex. 

 She sighed as she stood up, levering her weight onto the fork to help her stand. She stretched and arched her aching back and was aware of her shadow across the freshly dug earth.

She walked back to the garden shed, dragging out a wooden chair she placed it in the shade as she opened up her bottle of water, she drank thirstily thinking of the ant. How courageous he was running to defend ready to sacrifice for the good of the whole. And now his bravery was no more. Gone with the brush of a hand.

The Blackbird who had been keeping her company for days as she had dug the earth landed by the ants. Seeing his opportunity, he gathered more food for his chicks.  She had thrown him the odd worm over the days and the woman had seen his expert eye pick out the wire worms that she could hardly see.  He would fly off with beak full to return near the woman’s feet to see what else the woman had dug up and so the two worked in silent unity, respecting each other’s territory. The woman marvelled at the unspoken trust the blackbird showed her as he hopped so near her folk and hoe.   

Sitting watching the Blackbird gather in this new prize, the woman thought how her actions of turning the earth had set in motion a series of events.  She had a pang of regret. Then stopped herself, was not the black birds chicks now benefiting?

Life and Death went side by side.

Worlds within Worlds kept going around her head.

Were we not like ants? Building our communities and cities. Making our homes, rearing our young, each doing what it takes to survive. Were we not rushing about looking confused? In our chaotic world, as we rushed to work, and drove our cars along the routes we made.

We were all going about our daily lives, thinking ourselves safe, until something bigger than ourselves over which we have no control comes along to cause havoc and upheaval. She thought of the recent volcanic eruptions and thought how small we were compared to natures might.

She stood to begin weeding on another patch, giving the ants time to settle.

All of us are part of Natures Natural World we are no different than Ants.  And in the scheme of the Universe we were minuscule tiny atoms of carbon, floating about like molecules in the space-stream of the Cosmos.  A Sobering thought, as the woman knelt down, pulling up a stubborn weed. She shook the soil from its roots. Taking off her glove, she ran her hand within the soil, thinking we all return to dust, and pondered upon the miracle of life.

We were all made up of the same Elements of carbon and various minerals that were found in the Earth and Stars!.  She looked skyward, shielding her eyes from the Sun, and smiled, yes..

we are All One.

The woman wondered if the human population would be as resilient if their world were turned upside down like the ants..  

She tried to put that thought from her mind as she stretched her legs as she turned her attention to the job in hand.  

Worlds within Worlds, she thought.

Sowing and Reaping,

Harvesting what we Sow

Yes,  Worlds within Worlds

Wheels within Wheels Forever Turning!

The Woman started on her next patch, the Blackbird sang his Song, the woman smiled some more.

All is well in my world as she said her favourite mantra silently to herself,

 we were all of us heading in the same direction….

 Home!..

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.

The Alchemy of Consciousness

Berries of the Ivy that help insects get through winter. See HERE more Information

~~~~

The alchemy of consciousness that created you and me

Is nudging us to lift our hearts to open and begin to see

That the branches we stand upon within the Tree of Life

Keeps us reaching upwards, as you walk away from strife.

And from the lofty view, as we gaze back upon our path

We see the culmination of our thoughts that create such wrath

So, stand within your power, The elixir of your Light

As you open up your Vision, create a brand-new Sight.

Know that your thoughts are the paint in all you do

You can either paint in bright colours or allow fear to dim your view.

Nature despite all that the seasons throws at her, she never gives in. No matter how cold or how much snow or rain has covered those new shoots, she pushes on through and ALWAYS Blooms. Giving us her best with what she has been given.  I often feel for the animals who must at times be as confused as we are, but they continue to be motivated to survive and thrive.  They never give up, no matter what is thrown at them, they learn to adapt, or they don’t survive. 

Spring brought us a weeks grace here the other week when temperatures soared to record highs in the UK for April in 70 years, It lasted a week, then plummeted back to normal, and once again the wind and rain has set in. While I know in other parts of the world Snow and cold temperatures have lasted longer than normal, While in other parts Floods never seen before have been happening. 

No matter what the world is showing us at the moment, be it in extreme weather or extreme behaviours, we have to be more like nature, and keep on keeping on, just being the BEST we can be.

Time is precious.  And we all of us spend far too much time worrying over things out of our control.. At times I want to rant and rave and shout my rage at what I know to be.. Yet doing so is only adding to the Chaotic energies which is being purposely generated. My rants often come in the words of poems and if people are open enough they will see the meaning behind them. 

Each of us holds tremendous power, yet we so easily give this power away… The power of our own Energy, our own minds and our own thinking. .. Don’t allow your energy be sabotaged, I have done some deep searching into my own negative blip as I allowed my emphatic self be swamped by emotional issues of the world.  While we all need to be compassionate, we also have to understand each of us hold our own responsibilities, we can not be responsible for another’s actions  

I have recently picked up the book again by Eckhart Tolle  and started to re-read his words of the POWER OF NOW. Never more has it been more vital to see just how much Power we hold in this moment of time..  And using our minds to create the sort of world we want to live in. 

So if you feel overwhelmed at times and confused, and aghast at the world at large, remember we each create our future by what we are thinking in the now. Our own energy is vital. So if we join in with prejudice, anger and discrimination,  that is what we will keep perpetuating.

Look around you, everything you see, was once an idea, a thought brought into being by intention and action.. 

Thought Creates

So if we want a society to be more peaceful and a world which lives in balance with nature, we have to realise it all starts from altering our own habits, our own thoughts as we adapt to alter our ways of BEing.

I will leave you with a few Spring flowers, and the Top Picture just for Betty whose Poem Vine brought me to take a picture of some Ivy entwined within my conifer tree.

Wishing you all a Wonderful Weekend 

 

 

 

A Time of Gathering.

Autumn colours as I walked yesterday

Walking out in Mother Nature is a gift I treasure, watching the changing seasons, absorbing each one with all her different merits, from Spring, through to Summer. Now Autumn is truly here, and its that time of harvest, of ‘gathering in.’

The heather shows us her colours~ What colours do we show the world I wonder.

  As I walked, I thought about how I love harvest time.. I love reaping in our harvest. And we all reap that which we have sown. 

Yesterday we harvested some of our first carrots.. A success story, as we often do battle with the  carrot fly, and pests, as we do not use any kind of chemical pesticides, So the carrot fly  has in the past rendered our carrots inedible.  This year with forethought and planing, we set them late, in a separate bed, covered them with a fine-mesh and left them be… Yesterday we lifted our first bunch of the season, they were perfect once the soil was scrubbed from them. 

Freshly picked yesterday

I wonder what forethought we put into our lives.. How well do we prepare our own Beds? And how often  do we allow those pests, those negative thoughts to gnaw and eat us away?

Each of us are unique individuals. Each different, yet we all belong to the same family.

Nature provides, and Nature takes.. Working close to nature gets you to see this fine balance that is working all the time.. Some years things will thrive, others not so. You get to see close up those spiders and their webs, I avoided some very large spiders yesterday as I picked Dahlias, they had weaved them between and only a trained eye spots them. And I have been caught out a time or two and received a nasty bite, that I had destroyed their web.  So I am mindful of them, and respectful as I can be, of the amount of effort that goes into weaving them.. 

We humans forget the power of Nature until she reminds us  with the might of her storms, as she bites into the fabric of our own homes, and wipes away all that we spend our time and energy in putting together.. We think we are all powerful, yet she can in seconds reduce us to rubble, reminding us she is never more dangerous than when we fail to respect her Power and  Might. 

While out walking, seeing the berries for the birds to harvest, and nuts for the squirrels, in between the blackberries, I spied something that at first glance looked pretty..

Deadly Nightshade more can be found about this plant here

But in fact the above plant is pretty deadly, and their single berries should NOT be eaten.. It  can often be found growing along side Wild Blackberry bushes, so care should be taken when harvesting, though their Single cherry like berries are easily distinguished.. 

Life holds both shades of light and darkness..  Both grow side by side… Learning to discern and differentiate is what sets us apart.  But if we did not have the dark we would not then know the light.. 

Learning to bridge our differences~ Railway bridge.

We are living in a world where we travel across Time Lines, visiting far away countries we see cultures that can be very different from our own.  Yet within each nation, no matter what culture, people experience both Joy and Sorrow, learning to overcome obstacles just as we do.  We are all of the same family, the Human Race. 

We need now more than ever to build bridges instead of walls that divide us. We do not need to wait until Spring to sow seeds.. We sow our seeds daily, in how our thoughts go out into the world.. We sow them with our compassion and with our love.. 

Gaia gives us daily our breath, our food and water.. She shows us how intricate we are weaved together.  She is also showing us how through our fragility we can Unify and grow together. She shows us how to reach out to each other, stretching a helping hand, as she brings us through her disasters, to help one another.. 

Her own time lines are altering, shifting, evolving as are we.  We can hear her rumbles.. 

When we gather together, and we align our hearts, when we each generate out Light and Love from our hearts. Those thought patterns  go out into Nature and into our communities we are sowing that which we each would like to reap. May we understand all is experience within our Human Heart Grid. The Web is what we weave around the Earth. 

I hope as we each begin to understand, we are all of us co-creators upon our Earth plane. That we gather our strength in our Oneness, Our Unity Consciousness. Sow that which we want to reap. Then may we gather in the harvest that we sow.  

May you all safely Gather in 

Love and Light

 

Trusting in the Choices we make

It may  appear we are surrounded in Negativity as we stand alone in our thoughts.

As I awoke from the dream where many voices were all trying to be heard at once, yet no one voice could make themselves understood. I reached for my journal. My pen hovered over the blank page, knowing I should write, I waited. Sending a thought out to the Universe in acknowledgement that a message would be forthcoming.

CHOICE.

I awaited the words that would follow, as I trust in the process of my guided thoughts, the pen then moved and  ……………………………….          TRUST       was  the second word that appeared upon the page.  Trusting in the process, something I’ve learnt to do all my life.  And so, the words  began to form. 

Trusting in the choices I’ve made, choosing to trust in those choices. Trusting our instincts.

Each day we all have choices to make, some small, some large. Each of us knows somewhere deep inside of us if those choices feel right or wrong.  No, I won’t say wrong, because even wrong choices we chose for a reason, and they can also end up to be the right ones.

Trusting our instincts, our gut feelings have led me to make some wonderful choices. And when I have knowingly gone against those better instincts, when I have not followed my gut, and instead listened to my ego head. I have also instinctively known, I could have made a better choice.

But they were my choices, my decisions, I made them. And in making them, they have also led me deeper to TRUST in those instincts, to follow the ‘Signs’ the ‘Synchronicities’  that lead us onto our chosen pathway. So even when those choices could have been better, they also led me to knowing myself even deeper.

Last week I made a choice to disconnect for a time from my blogging world. I knew instinctively, I needed time out for ME.. Time to recharge, to create, to be still, and collect together my thoughts.

A family bereavement nudged me to make that initial choice of retreat for a while, as I wrote a Eulogy that ended a chapter of a well-loved life. As I was asked and given the honour to speak at my sister-in-law’s husband’s funeral last week.

 But we are never alone. We are Many hearts gathered together in Love. 

So, I made the choice to embrace Nature as I walked in her fields.  I created space to meditate, to draw and doodle, paint. I baked, I sat in silence, I played music, lighted candles, and prayed. I Sang, laughed, cried and wrote poetry.

I turned on the modem several times, intending to reconnect, seeing the beauty of hearts that collect here in Dreamwalker’s Sanctuary.  And I thank you for your hearts, your comments and your patience in my still getting to reply.

Yet I followed my Instincts, as I stayed within my silent space a little longer. As if to back that up, I got an eye infection a couple of days ago. Another Sign I needed to LOOK at. While I am using eye drops to clear the infection, I know there is still something within me that is shifting, that is still needling to be cleared.. So I am trusting in the process, following my instincts.  

The world is in this process of clearing and cleansing. My thoughts turn to Texas and the many places around our globe who have suffered disasters recently found themselves under the deluge of our Earth Mother’s Tears.  As she attempts to clear and cleanse.  So many lives, grieving and mourning their loss of loved ones around the world.  Many who are now having to make new choices, as they learn to let go of the material world we surround ourselves with, as possessions are lost.  

This morning I was all set to reconnect, and catch up with your beautiful comments.. Yet a long very long new Windows 10 update put paid to that. Another ‘Sign’, I am taking as I take a few more days to allow my eye to heal..

Taking time out to reflect, and pull in the vibration of Calm, Peace and Love.

I just ask that each of you pay heed to the choices you are making right now..  Trust in the process as you allow yourselves to go deeper within, Trust, in your choices, to let go of fear. Embrace Peace and Love in your hearts.

I am taking time out to align and adjust to the frequencies that I feel are coming into Earth right now since the Luna Eclipse. Is there not something within you right now, speaking to you to turn off the technology and reconnect to your Inner Being? Have you felt these changes?  I feel we are within an interesting month. Allow Love and Peace to be your reality and avoid if you can getting caught up within all of the Fear Mongering.

Love and Peace..

~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..

Hydrangea’s in our home garden

See you Soon! 

Morning Breaks into Song.

 

Morning breaks and all is still and pure

The warm breeze is fresh with calm expectation

As a new day dawns.

Then on wind comes first one, then many voices

Each greeting a new day, knowing not what it will bring. ,

I listen to their song, each trill, each chirp rings out in greeting

Their symphony rises as each sing to be heard, as messages

Are passed among the tree tops.

I pick out the blackbird, the Robin, and the Sparrow

Sadly, it’s a while since I heard the sweet Song Thrush

And I ponder upon a Birds Life.

To wake with such joy, no thought of worry

Living in the Now of every moment

Accepting opportunities as they busy themselves in finding food

Catching insects, worms and making the most of human kindness

As they feed from the bird tables and drink from the bird baths.

 

And So a poem is born…

The Blackbird

Morning breaks and all is still

Until the Blackbird makes his trill

To call upon all who will listen

As morning dew in sunlight glistens

~~

First one, then two, then a multitude

Their joy in song they do exude

Imparting greetings of a brand-new day

I often wonder what messages they convey.

~~

As Sparrow chirps and Robin sings

Each not knowing what the day will bring

Yet each in tree on branch sings out

No worry in mind or do they doubt

~~

That upon the wing enough food they’ll find

No regrets of fear of future in mind

Living each moment as it arrives

Knowing enough food Nature will provide

~~

And yet if we look, we too will see sorrow

As some on wing will not see tomorrow

For Nature creates her balancing act

And that comes from Hawk and next doors cat.

~~

I ponder then upon sorrow felt, as laments on wing are sung

Lone parents, working twice as hard to rear their young

Yet come the morn, I hear their voice

As a New Dawn rises, they sing and rejoice

~~

Would that we Humans could sing our Songs

To know each day, we were so strong

That we could Trust and live in our Now

Thank you Blackbird

You teach me how..

I hope you take a moment or two to pause, breathe deep and listen to nature, she is teaching us with her song every day.. I hope you find time to Sing  your Song…..

💚💚💚

Love and Blessings my friends.. 

Rainbow Light Dance. Within the Garden of Love

View from my swing

Silence becomes my friend as I sit in the dappled light upon my swinging seat. Rocking back and forth as I lift my feet from the ground, I become lighter than air.

Lulled in the rhythm, like a babe in arms, I’m content. A smile spreads across my lips as my ‘Knowing’ unfolds the deep mysteries of my existence.

Flower of the climbing hydrangea

Lifetimes are stripped back,  like the darkness, they disappear, as the Sun makes her appearance over the horizon as the New Dawn Awakes.

Each struggle, every action, and every choice ever made has brought me to this moment

of who I AM.

The Sun catches my face sending its warmth across my skin. I see it glow beneath closed lids. My smiles grow wider as I welcome my old friend.

As if in answer, the breeze lifts, and the chimes sing their welcome. Bringing harmonic sound to share among the dancing butterflies.

Opening my eyes, shafts of rainbow prism’s filter onto the quartz, showing me the hidden beauty our eyes rarely see.

Each Prism a dance of love

I give thanks for this moment, as I let go of expectation, accepting myself in this moment as the Being that I AM.

A constant evolving soul, perfecting her faults that have served to bring her to this Perfect Moment.

She lets go of all that she was, as she embraces all she is to Become.

All she ever has been,

Remembering All that she is, in the moment of Now

All else disappears into the next moment and the next, and the next.

The breeze brushes her face for a second and it’s gone.

Such are the wisps of memories, as she gives thanks for each existence.

Knowing her higher-soul is already BEyond this reality

She closes her eyes one final time.

As she rocks herself into her Dreams

Written on May 31st  from the pictures of my mind through the lens of my garden photos

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
