“It’s very important that we re-learn the art of resting and relaxing. Not only does it help prevent the onset of many illnesses that develop through chronic tension and worrying; it allows us to clear our minds, focus, and find creative solutions to problems”
This winter in the UK although so very mild has been one of the wettest on record and I have been very thankful for living on top of hill for a change, although that has its disadvantages when we get lots of snow.
Nature too is just as confused as we are. Winter is a time to rest and sleep… I needed to retreat within the warmth of my inner shell for a time to replenish and nurture.
Reaching up, to be our best
It seemed that my climbing rose forgot it was winter and I spied this bud peeking its way out of my evergreens which it had climbed through it and the ivy.
The day was a rare day, clear skies and sunny which was probably what made me look up as I walked under the arch of greenery to the green house.

Reconnecting to my creative self allowed that total absorption to be centred within the moment. Each stitch of Knitting placed with care and attention allowed my thoughts to wander back to the days when my Grandmother would patently sit with me and teach me the basic stitches of knitting.
Each stitch, placed with thought. Each thought forming the shape of our lives.
Something I am now doing with my own little granddaughter, who at the moment just likes winding the wool around the needle as I knit. But I think it important we do not lose these skills and we can produce some wonderful unique garments.. This little set cost me nothing to make, it was using up remnants of wool I had left over. And yes New life within my distant family circle is due in May time..
New Life was also set to the tune of the Moon, another new project I am starting to do as I hope this year to follow the Luna Biodynamic Gardening methods.. My daughter provided me with a beautiful book for Christmas as I had told her my intentions so this is the result. My Gardening Post explains more here
I planted these onion seeds on the 21st January and 10 days later they are all growing fine.
Planting seeds to the Moon Rhythms.
I also planted my sweet-peas and within 4 days they were starting to show themselves to the light.
I have one more project that will probably be on going now throughout the rest of my Life. Its going slowly, I am not rushing it and I will reveal more on this on a future post.. So keep ‘Tuning’ in.
Life is Miraculous when you think just how each seed contains within it has the knowledge to grow and mature into the perfect flower or Vegetable or Human Being.
We are All of us Miraculous Beings. Maybe it is time to plant the seeds of our thoughts back into Good Mother Earth… To grow we need the right environment to nurture our Dreams.. I have come to understand within my silence that no matter how many humans try to taint our world.. We are all of us Gardeners.. Planting our thoughts, cultivating those next generations. And it is up to us to nurture the space we grow in..
And as we learn to weed out the excess baggage and plough in the skills and attitudes that help liberate and refine those future generations. To embrace decisions that consider the consequences of our actions for the well being of our Whole Planet, not just the few upon her.
For a Great Future awaits us.. It is up to each of us to acknowledge and be mindful of our responsibility within it. My seeds responded to the vibration of the Moon and I am sure my encouraging words of Love are helping them flourish.
Spending time back within my thoughts reconnected me back to my Inner Child, those of us who are healers know that Love is the greatest healer of all.
That little girl in me reminded me that in our deepest wounds were the remnants of scars of the longings to be loved. She reminded me of the need to create a space in which to embrace the magic of my own creativity as I learn how to Play again and become the child I AM and that I always will be.
Me age 5
Have a Blessed Weekend
