Follow your Heart

Butterfly in oils

Butterfly in oils a small Painting I did over the weekend as I experimented with oils.. ( not my favourite medium ) but I am happy with how it turned out. Even though my camera skills need much to be desired 🙂 

Butterfly, Butterfly, Dancing on the breeze

You flit through the heavens, and among the trees

You fly through the air, like a leaf upon the wind,

Tumbling and turning, beating your soft wings

~~

The meadow is your haven, with flowers of nectar sweet,

I watch you fly to heaven, while I sit upon my seat.

Your message of transformation, as I let go of old

And I watch your new freedom as I ask to be bold

~~

My sorrows held within me, as again I give a sigh

You hypnotise me with your beauty, as you fly on by

You whisper in my ear, to trust in all that’s good

For your lifespan is so precious, so live it as we should

~~

You never waste a moment, searching for your mate

For time for you is limited, yet here I hesitate.

Teach me to trust and let myself fly free

And push away the dark clouds, and let myself be me

~~

The Daisies are many, gathered all around

Each one pure perfection, pushing through the ground

They nod their heads together, all in unison

Their fragrance on the wind, smiling at the Sun.

~~

Nature at her best, she neither worries nor does toil

She just keeps on growing, and pushing through the soil.

And even when the ground is hard with all the frost

The flowers push on upwards, and nothing is ever lost.

~~

And so my Butterfly, as at last you’re flying free…

Of caterpillar’s drudgery, of munching under tree

I know you hold a lesson for all of us to share

Your wings are made in heaven and are beyond compare.

~~

And when we see your beauty, we’re reminded of all good.

How each can transform our lives, learning how to love.

So flit around the world, and spread your love and light.

For when I see you on my path.. Then I know I’m alright.

 ~~

The above poem I wrote in 2011, I have witnessed many butterflies since the time of writing when I was at a lower ebb in my life. 

We are all of us transforming right now, as we flit through our various stages of evolution.. The Butterfly always is a great reminder to me, that it was once a caterpillar munching among the cabbages, not knowing there was a whole new world beyond the cabbage patch .. 

But it needed to pass through its own stages of evolution before it transformed and flew..It never worried when it spun its cocoon around itself.. It just went with what it’s instincts had taught it to do.. It just went with the flow.. 

I am just going with the flow, and trusting that as we hold the Light of love in our hearts we too can help transform the world..

Keep the light of Love in your hearts

More artwork soon to follow 

Love

Out of Silence~ Comes Creativity

“Everything that’s created comes out of silence. Your thoughts emerge from the nothingness of silence. Your words come out of this void. Your very essence emerged from emptiness. All creativity requires some stillness. “

More and more I am seeking the sanctuary of Silence.. to sit within that bubble of quiet contemplation and be inspired to be at One within the comfort of my own thoughts, and for a while disconnect to the chatter of life  for a while..  

A Flower Mandala

A flower Mandala done in watercolour paints and coloured inks

So the other day I had the desire to paint.. I was clearing out some draws and came across some old coloured inks that I had not used since my creative Auragraph Days.. I really have Cyndi to thank for her new blog of Contemplative Colouring  where she designs and creates to share those wonderful images she creates to colour in.. She gave me the urge to be creative.. I hope you pop along, and see what she is sharing..  

I had a Lovely Diary given me for Christmas, my daughter always buys me the  Earth Pathways Diary, and this time within its many wonderful features were some wonderfully created Flower Mandala’s by the  artist Maria Silmon, I looked up her website.. Be amazed.. she can be found HERE

 So I thought I would have a go a creating my own mandala..  The above is my doodlings, not a patch upon her own creative art.. But as I sat within the Silence, Time was none existent. And I enjoyed creating in the Peace of oblivion .. 

 

If you click the Card it will take you to the Source: 

I picked a random Angel Card today Thursday..Out of Dorren Virtue’s  Archangel  Gabriel Oracle card deck.. and it confirmed my thoughts on taking care of Me by staying True to myself.

The full interpretation says:

 

Stay True To Yourself

“This card is a message for you to trust and follow your inner guidance. Don’t second-guess yourself or veer off course to please other people. You know, deep down, what to do. Partner with God’s guidance. Trust and follow the path you’re shown, one step at a time.

If you ever find yourself feeling stuck or if your business stalls, you can be sure it’s because you’ve compromised your original ideas. This stems from listening to fears and trying to satisfy everyone or fit in with others. Fears will never lead you where you want to go. Fortunately, it’s never too late to get back on track by staying true to yourself. This experience will help strengthen your assertiveness. Call upon God and Archangel Gabriel for help in being honest with others.”

Today Friday, I read Linda’s post over at Litebeings Chronicles and listened to the video in full… I just love how these synchronicities fall into place as they show you that your choices are circulating new energy which is what  Matt Kahn’s teachings help show us in this session. 

I hope you will be patience with me for a while.. as I adjust and resettle…( and circulate new energy ) 🙂 

My own energies seem all over the place at the moment.. I need some quiet and creative time .. And will be resting over the weekend..

Enjoy your own Weekends and make time to be creative and tell those whom you love that you love them.. Sending you Love and Peace, and Enjoy your weekend.. 

Blessings

Revamping Garden Furniture~ Nature breaks

Making the most of Sunny days in between showers is what most of us in the UK are used to. I have to say this week has been topsy turvy weather-wise, with Sunshine and Showers at at times high winds. which reeked havoc in some coastal places such as Devon and Cornwall . 

So in-between the showers this week I have had a project on going. I decided to repaint the garden furniture, which must be at least 15 yrs old. It was looking very shabby and by the time I had scrapped yet more lose paint off it, it was looking even more worse for wear.

I have to say painting these three pieces look me longer than I thought. and by the time I finished my arm and hand knew about it 🙂 

But the finished results were well worth the discomfort and aches for a few days.

Finished Two-seater

We have been busy in the allotments and I took down the nets from the loganberries as they were about all finished and gathered in. I gave half a net to hubby who had ideas for the small fish pond

Subakin and Goldfish

Subakin and Goldfish

 The wind meant the leaves were coming off our evergreen bushes fast and furious as old leaves died. So the pond was needing to be cleaned most days from the debris.

So Hubby made a frame using the fruit net to help as a barrier. The Fish also love the screen as they now no long submerge when they see our shadow. So we get to see them, and they don’t get a fright from us.

Hubby made this frame to stop the leaves from falling in the pond

All creatures great and small 

Spiders have been making their presence known to me all week. They no doubt have been prompting me in my creative skills,  And not only the spiders but I had a lovely long visit on my washing line from this lovely butterfly  The Red Admiral.

I have also had some time out to meditation and over several of them I kept seeing within them a face.. So yesterday I sat down with sketch pad and tried my best to capture the image of the face that kept popping into my meditations.. I have yet to find out his name.. but his smile was enough to reassure me all is well in my world.. I feel he is Tibetan .. So here he is

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend as I am taking a Nature Break .. 

Sending you all my love 

See you all Very Soon

My Dream ~ Translated I just had to share..

“Don’t only practice your art, but force your way into its secrets, for it and knowledge can raise men to the divine.”

― Ludwig van Beethoven

On Jan 3rd I had a Dream.. Please click on the music video below so you can get a sense of some of my experience.. .. Sunday I tried to capture some of the images I had in the dream… So I painted.. But I saw Oh so so much more………

In the beginning of the dream.. She was Me.. As I began to sing.. but then I became the observer.. This has to be the best Dream experience ever… .. So I had to share.. I heard the Music… Music like I have never heard upon this earth… the video music is about as close as I can get to that feeling of being exalted to a higher place.. I am still so excited I cannot tell you the Love I felt within this experience.. If this is the beginning of 2015.. Whoooooh… Let it roll……..

My Dream..

“She stood in a gown that was a rich golden brown. Its fabric shimmered catching the light that reflected from the crystals of natural quartz that sprang up around her. The gown was long and flowing not only did it reach the floor, but it spiralled out around her in a never ending dance as it became one with the sphere of the Earth.

Dream Love Song.

My Painting..

She took a deep breath; here she stood in the centre of the globe called Gaia.

Her hair was so long the wind picked it up to billow out behind her in long tresses. Birds flew in and amongst her strands of hair, Insects and butterflies danced within making it their home.

With breath still poised, she raised her arms like a conductor of an orchestra. She expanded her lungs and she began to Sing…. Her Soprano voice was pure. The moment her voice vibration raised higher the spiral of her gown buried deeper into the Earth. The Grass became part of her gown. Trees sprang forth from the folds of it swaying to her melody of love; Flowers opened their blooms, each petal giving separate notes in a wonderful exotic dance of harmonic ripples.. Love notes rippled like the keys of the piano. The buds on the trees open their leaves their notes sounded deeper like a million cello’s. Birds sang their flute like songs and the butterflies wings danced lighter than bell chimes.

Water trickled into streams, clear and sparking like the strings of the violin.. They swelled in a crescendo in waves that beat the rocks crashing in like kettle drums smashing like symbols into glistening spray..

The Whales joined in her song a mournful lament, while deep in the jungle the elephants gave a low rumble to acknowledge they had heard.. The roar of the Big Cats were heard above the cries of the orangutan’s

As the Thunderous machines of man cut swaths leaving deep scars that screeched like vultures circling over head, to give way to silence………. as they circled over the corpses of everything left dying in its wake..

She paused……………. ready to continue…….. Her arms raised high above her head, she Sang.. her voice becoming a crescendo with the Earth, her breath became the Spiral.. Her Hair became the Wind.. The notes she sang sprang forth from her mouth forming hearts and stars.. Every living creature now joined in her song…

She knew her Song of love was being joined by so many more.. She was ONE with ALL.. She was part of our Earth Mother..

~~~~

I hope you enjoyed reading about this Dream and I hope you enjoyed listening to the wonderful music  of the PianoGuys   

See you all very soon…

Autumns Dance

Spirit of Autumn, My interpretation of the Magic of Autumn Gold.

Spirit of Autumn, My interpretation of the Magic of Autumn Gold.

The Winds Dance

From where does the wind gain her mighty strength?

How long is her trail, her width and her length?

From whence does a breeze grow into a gale?

As she shrieks and blusters bringing down hail

~~

And how does her anger in tornadoes twirl

Calm to the silence in the eye of a storm

And when does her shout fall to whispers and calm

That caressers the skin in the light of the dawn

~~

She flirts with the leaves to twist them and prance

Lifting them up to have their last dance

Her friend is the rain as he falls from the sky

Pelting the ground as he matches her sighs

~~

She finds every nook and the cracks to creep in

Howling laments as she shrieks out her din

The trees bow their heads in respect to her might

Those who resist are snapped in their fight

~~

She whips up the oceans creating great swells

And blows in the mountains, valleys and dells

She blows up the snow that drifts on the ground

She’s gentle and silent then violent and loud

~~

Never underestimate Nature with all of her sides

She’s stronger than Man despite all of his strides

Respect ALL the elements, to not is to fall

Because Nature is Mother, Listen to her call

My thoughts are sent out to those in the path of any forthcoming storms around the world..

 I wrote this poem some time ago when we were experiencing High winds..

The above artwork I did a couple of years ago.. As I tried to capture the Golden Magic of Autumn and the glitter of Frost upon the fallen leaves.. 

I hope you are all enjoying a wonderful week as I leave you with this poem.

Blessings and thank you for reading and Welcome to all who are newly subscribed to Dreamwalker’s Sanctuary I hope you enjoy your browsing experience.

Swirl and Paint your Dreams

Painting Dreams

Swirl and Paint your Dreams.

Creating my dreams as I paint with my heart

One brush stroke then two, let’s make a start

Flowers and Nature swirled in the mix

Following dreams is a Happiness Fix

Rainbows delight while patterns unfold

Just follow your heart with brush strokes so bold

Focus on thoughts with love and with light

Creating my dreams is such a delight

Imagination swirls in your mind

Bringing forward a heart that is kind

To open up dreams is to follow your heart

Flying high once more you soar like the Lark

Summer Sun shines as your future unfurls

The colours your paint as you mix and you swirl

Your brushstrokes create the patterns of life

As you leave all your troubles and forget about strife..

Painted Herb  Bucket Tub

I am relaxing as I paint, and I am slowly working my way through all of your comments upon my last post as I catch up with your blogs and the posts I missed.. For those I have not caught up with I will do so over the next few days… I hope you are enjoying the beginning of September, as Autumn starts to turn the leaves to her golden time..

Make sure each of your own brush strokes on the Canvas of life leaves lasting colour through the memories you make..

Be seeing you shortly

Love and Blessings

Relaxing Days

“In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.”

Buddha

Hello again and many have been awaiting updates of my artwork and allotments, so today I will show you how I spent time painting. Below is a metal water jug which I painted.

Another small milk churn I painted for outdoor use as a planter is here.. This was painted Green the I used acrylics which  when dried have then had two top coats treated with Clear varnish to weather proof the tins.

Others I did previously are these..

ButterfliesMore DaisiesForgetmenots

 I am on the countdown now for the end of the month and it will seem very strange not working as I added up my work years to be 40.. So its time to enjoy and relax and pursue the hobbies I love which is painting and gardening.

You win some and you lose some.

Speaking of which  I will give you a picture update here now of the allotments and how things are coming along.. We have had some very heavy storms with flash flooding with heavy rains yesterday, and we have been told by the UK Met Office to brace ourselves for more storms and heavy down pours as the tail end of Hurricane Bertha will hit Sunday, today.

Due to the fluctuating weather of dry the wet, many of the allotment holders have suffered Potato Blight We spotted it as soon as it started to appear on the foliage so we cut the tops off to stop it spreading to the potatoes.The potatoes are fine underneath thank goodness.

Potatoes are still under here But the tops got potatoe blight so had to be cut off so as not to go back down and rot potatoes    Cabbages  Missed spaces due to cabbage root fly getting at them

The cabbages got hit too with root fly so you can see the missed spaces here under the netting.. The Cabbage White butterfly didn’t get to them but the Cabbage root fly did..  You win some and you lose some. That’s how it is when you grow your own.. We do not spray anything.. But next time we will remember to put a circle of card around the new plants as the fly lays its eggs at the base of the cabbage, the maggots then can’t  go down and eat the root as the eggs will often dry off and die.

  Onions and ShallotsThe onions and shallots have dried out beautifully and were left on top to finish off drying.. Unfortunately we missed not going down to the allotments for just one day, but someone obviously needed some extra onions that day and helped themselves to the biggest Onions across the rows…. ( I do not like to think of another allotmenteer  could do this, but we also had lots of garlic taken earlier this year. Some one likes their onions! Sad smile 

A success story though is our dwarf beans and runner beans.. loads have been frozen, and are now stored in the freezers. ( and yes we have a back up generator just in case of emergencies ) As we have had one or two unexpected power outages recently due to storms.. 

Drawf Beans        Runner Beans Had loads

The Sweet corn has gone to seed earlier than expected and many cobs are not fully mature, but having said that we have got quite a few large ones off already..Sweetcorn we won't have a much this year as going to seed It seems everything in the allotment this year is around a month early for harvesting. The Courgettes too have been abundant.

Courgettes have come out of our ears!

and we are just getting the Butternut squash forming.. This is a success too as we hadn’t tried growing this before..

Butternut squash just forming

We Raspberries now coming and doing wellalso have had lots of Raspberries too off the bushes and lots still to come on later flowering crops. So these have been made into delicious sweet deserts some  of these recipes I will add to my recipe pages later..  The Blackberries too have been yielding Pounds of fruit and I am keeping my eye out for the elderberries which are just about ready for turning on the trees.. I want to try my hand this year of making Elderberry Syrup which is good for keeping those colds and coughs at bay..

Gladioli

Above  are the Gladioli’s which I have grown to have as cut flowers  to display  indoors..

Well I hope you enjoyed my Relaxing Days, I started with the New Moon and my altering my Intentions and the Full Super Moon is going to be a super one too, so Enjoy! Click the links to find our more..

And Thank you for reading..
