The Way.

The Way

Scotland 2016

“Where am I going?” the traveller said

As he stepped on the stones of Rivers Bed

“How far is my destination?”

As he continued on in procrastination

~~

“Which way leads home, how do I choose,

I am lost and afraid and quite bemused”.

“How long will it take for me to get there?

Have you got directions that you may share”?

~~

‘Welcome dear traveller as you join my road

Rest a while and set down your load

Too long have you carried your burdens

Replenish yourself and rest in my garden’

The weary traveller did as he was bade

Realising how long he had been a salve

In carrying guilt, and burdens so dark

He off loaded his emotions from out of his heart

~~

One by one he emptied them out

Laying them bare, he let out a shout

Seeing how each had weighed him down

He lifted his head, and no longer frowned

A trail over Derbyshire moorland.

“Thank you, my friend, for making me see

The Way that I trod was created by me

There are many paths but only One Way

And it took me so long in karma to pay

~~

But now that I see, The Way you have shown

My Spirit is cleansed, and Lighter I have grown

I honour my path and others on their walk

For we each chose our Light and our own dark

Each Prism a dance of love

“No Path is wrong, they just detour and steer

To learn deeper lessons, I see that quite clear

I may be torn and battered, my scars tell a tale

But no one upon the path will ever fail

~~

The traveller rose, giving thanks for his rest

One foot before the other, just doing his best

Life is beautiful when you see perfection in all things

The way is through the heart, open yours, let love sing.

The poem I wrote last week, and the above photo’s are ones I have previously shared here on my posts. You may have noted I have not been as active in the last last week here on WordPress, this is because I have been busy creating. I swapped my keyboard clicking, for the clicking of needles.. So until I have finished my latest project.. I may be a while in catching up with some of your posts..

Sometimes we have to follow our own particular roads, and at times I need to find that creative space and become the weaving woman.. It stills my mind, And each stitch, each step we take is creating The Way..  

Learn to follow your own hearts, open them up to your own creativity, bring that Joy back into your lives, doing what You love doing..  Have a wonderful rest of the week and I will see you in a click or two..

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..

Amid the Blooms.

Hollyhock as a storm brews

Among the scents of the cool evening air

I sit amid the blooms where the gentle breeze stirs

The nodding heads of petals with nectar and pollen ripe

Attracts the Bee and Butterfly and Moth by night

 

~~

The Fairy Lights are twinkling by the trickle of the pond

As a deep Sigh escapes me, this is where I belong

The Earth beneath my feet, as stars do shine above

Sitting among such beauty within a garden that I love

~~

It could have been an open meadow that holds a babbling brook

I close my eyes and upon a journey I am took

Deeper now I am breathing, as I recall my day

Seeing Butterflies and Bees in a field rich with hay

~~

In gratitude, my thanks to all creatures do I give

For all of Natures Blessings, that enable me to live

And the Spiral keeps on turning as Seasons come and go

Who could miss such beauty, as Mother Nature gives her show

~~

Content a deeper sigh escapes with thanks as I say Goodnight

Tomorrow is another day to welcome in the Light.

The above photo’s were taken from the Hydrangea’s in my garden.. The bees have loved these flowers. And although I have not seen as many butterflies this year, I was so happy to spot this Red Admiral 

 

I hope you all continue to enjoy Nature and make time to connect to her healing energies . And I thank each and every one of you for the Love you bring here to me.

Healing and Balancing our Energies.

The Careful Balance between silence and words, withdrawal and involvement, distance and closeness, solitude and community forms a good basis for a wonderful shared Life ” 

Quote by J.C. Geike.

The above quote I came across this morning as I searched among some of my books for a little inspiration, I found it in a small book called Wisdom of Words that I have had since it was published in the 90’s.

In it are a collection of quotations, all to inspire and uplift.   I often find myself juggling my blogs, garden and quite time, and had been feeling a little guilty of neglecting my WordPress family.. Yes I know I shouldn’t, but I am human, and our conditioning of a life time often creeps in, for at my core I do not like letting people down.. Yet its impossible to visit every single post others publish especially those of you who post more than one post per week.   You all know the score.. 

So when I flicked open the book this morning  and this was at the top of the page, it jumped out at me.. Teaching me yet again that those invisible friends of mine were listening, and were confirming to me its ok to take time out and enjoy.. 

 

 Slowly some of you will notice I am getting there in catching up as I have managed to visit, In the mean time I would ask you to join me in sending continued Healing out into the world, if you have a loved one, friend,or situation you wish healed, please remember to ask  the Higher Realms for that healing as well as sending healing thoughts out to them and the situation which surrounds them. 

 My own little healing alter that I use to send healing out to friends.. I am also so pleased to say that Irene, whom you may remember I asked you to send healing to, is recovering well, all be it very slowly.. I have many friends here on WP who have been both in my prayers and thoughts and their names I have added to my healing book.

The power of our united thoughts reach out far and wide.. So while I may not have got around to visiting your actual blog, know I am working my way around. and you are all within my thoughts.  

~~~~

 ” 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..

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 wrote the above on a post entitled What Energy are we Transmitting,

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

Are You Listening?

 

Have you listened to the Silence?

The symphony of the stars

Can you hear the music beat within our Earth Mothers Heart?

It’s Time: Time to join the orchestra of her Song

And sing the long-forgotten notes of Dreamers

Be not afraid of standing alone and singing solo

For we are many joining in Harmony

Standing up in Unity of our forgotten heritage

Remembering the tune which has been deeply buried and obscured

We now open our hearts, finding our voices

To sing the forgotten Truth

Have you Listened to the Silence?

Has it not touched your heart

Illuminating your soul as the layers fall away

Revealing who we’ve always been

And who we are to become

Can you not feel the vibration?

Stirring those strands of your DNA

Do you not feel your molecular rivers?

Flowing within the molten heart of Compassion

Use your breath, as you breathe deeper into the New Dawn upon your Horizon

See how the Golden Glow of unification of open hearts dissolves  the shadows of fear

Its Time: Time to awaken, tune up the instruments that you are

For you are each an integral part within the orchestra of life

Its Time: Time to play the melody you came here to Sing

So, open your hearts to the love your Earth Mother has always given

For each breath, she gave you

Every sip of water Sprang forth from her springs

Each seed she grew to nourish you

Every forest she gave for shelter, food and warmth

So, listen to the Silence……………..

For our Earth Mother is calling us to remember your Ancient Ancestry

For we are not separate…… WE ARE ONE

Have you Listened?

And did you Hear her Song.

I wrote this on May 2nd.. It came during the night, as I had to sit up and ‘listen’ as the words wrote themselves… I felt I had to share them..

For it’s TIME..

Love and Blessings

The above photo I took in 2015 in March of the partial eclipse as the clouds grew darker and the air became cold.. More of the photos of the Eclipse  can be found here

The Feather that spoke..

Feather from Heaven

Feather from Heaven

Today I found myself sharing a true story with a blogging friend.  So I thought I would share it again here. For it may give someone the heart to look for the hidden Signs that our Guardian Angels/Universe/Source throws in our direction, If only we take the time to Look and Listen.

Last week I was so depressed it was like I was grieving for someone.. I didn’t want to even get out of bed in the mornings.. My bones ached as I thought my Fibromyalgia was starting another flare up.. I knew the energies were changing and affecting our bodies and so set about trying to alter my mind set as I didn’t want to fall into this particular pit again.

Yet it seems that no matter how many times I tried to disconnect from the world to lift my spirits, Negative news seemed to follow me and bog me down as if I were living out other people’s experiences.

News items I was trying to avoid would invade my space.. And the more weight seemed to load onto my chest to the point I felt physically constricted..  I couldn’t shake it off.. I tried watching old movies  on DVDs that had  comedy in them to make me laugh  and I would walk out in Nature, yet still I had this heart ache that wouldn’t go away..

So I Asked my own healing Angels to come forward and help, I reverted back to my daily meditation practice going right back to basics.. To clear my aura, putting on my ‘Light Body’ Grounding myself and remembering to put protection around me.. I even had salt baths. And I did clearing exercises to separate cording’s both past and present.

Last week we had a big storm called Storm Doris.. Whose winds were gusting up to 90mph.. I asked for protection around our home and those of family and friends. And thankfully we had no damage, yet many did with fences and glass broken in greenhouses, trees felled and one lady lost her life to flying debris in another part of the country.

The weird thing was, that as the storm was dying down, A large white feather dropped onto my back patio.. It stuck to the floor with the rain. ( I have long collected feathers, and see them as a sign from my angels.. ) So I went to pick  it up and dried it off..

The next day in the very same spot.. The VERY same spot.. I saw what appeared a flower on a stem, it looked like sweet-peas. But when I bent to pick it up it was made out of plastic, it wasn’t sweet-peas, but a stem of bleeding hearts.

At the time I threw it in the bin, thinking it was the wind which had blown it But the winds had long died down over night .. But all day I could not stop thinking about it so looked up the meaning on line. Of the Bleeding hearts flower. Which among many other things said ( Bleeding Heart helps bring peace, harmony and balance to people’s heart, allowing a person to perceive love on many levels: of self, others, city, country, environment and beyond.) – See more HERE

So here is the feather I painted. And in doing so the calm and healing soothed my soul as I allowed back in the peace as I listened once again as I painted this feather spoke deep to my heart..

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.
