Nature does Her Thing.

“What a joy it is to feel the soft, springy earth under my feet once more,    
to follow grassy roads that lead to ferny brooks    
where I can bathe my fingers in a cataract of rippling notes,    
or to clamber over a stone wall into green fields that    
tumble and roll and climb in riotous gladness! “

 Helen Keller

Remember last Autumn when the old compost heap on the allotment looked like this?

At the Back of the shed the old rubbish heap is going to be levelled. This is where we intend to grow our Butternut squash next year. As the allotment next to us just put his squash on old soil and left them.. They were 3 sizes bigger than ours.. So here they will have room to spread out to their hearts content :-)

Then Hubby got to work and started to dig. First digging the rectangle bed out which I was going to set flowers in and my apple trees in. 

Dug over Rubbish heap

He then dug out the compost heap and levelled it  using the old stone boarders from our front garden.

If I had wanted these nasturtiums to grow through the top of this broken old fire onion chimney they most likely wouldn’t have.. But just look at the transformation of the old compost heap..  You now see the new  overflowing compost heap contained behind the abundant Squashes and Courgettes. 

Well now it looks like this.

Some times you just have to let Nature do her Thing.

The Future ~ Standing as One with Nature

Wake up to Nature.

Wake up and savour the beauties that abound,

Wake up and honour all life that is around.

We take you for granted, even the air we breathe

Take time to look at the blossoms on the trees

~~

Look deep into a flower and see the wonders there

Take time to stop and listen to birds in the air..

Watch the glistening water, ripple over stones

Be thankful for the morning, these gifts and our homes

~~

We take Nature for granted, as she bestows these gifts for free

It’s up to us to look after her, for she’s there for you and me.

What if one day you awoke, and the air you breathed were black?

What happens if nature decides she is fighting back

~~

And no longer shall the bees pollinate the crops

And no longer will the rain give you those pure drops

Open your eyes, for we work hand in glove

Wake Up, and be thankful, For Nature needs our love

The Lyrics of this Song can be found HERE along with more information about  Xiuhtezcatl Martinez, a 15 year old youth leader with the non-governmental group Earth Guardians. who wrote “Speak for the Trees” was written in the summer of 2014. 

Thank you to Brad whose post Awesome Stories connected me with this young man and his endeavours to enlighten people about taking action into caring for our Planet Earth.

I was impressed with this young man as he said in one of his videos 

” The Biggest Challenge  we face is shifting Human Consciousness not saving the planet Because you know the planet doesn’t need saving,

but we do..”

And   Xiuhtezcatl  is right.. Mother Earth Will eventually heal from all that we have done to her.. But will we still be a species upon her?

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.

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

 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

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 ..

See you all Very Soon

Love Verses Hate.

 

Isn’t it strange how Synchronicity works?. But then when you get to see how this Universe really works, its not so strange at all..

I was drawn to take up the gauntlet of another challenge  over at http://mammadebbs.com The moment my mind decided to do so, as I caught up with some of my blogging community I was not surprised to see the trail of Synchronicity at work to help me put a post together.

Now firstly I rarely say the word Hate.. I prefer to say ‘Dislike’. Hate to me has a far deeper meaning. There are many things in this world I ‘Dis-like’. Tyranny, Abuse, Exploitation, War, Racism, and the list can go on and on. Hate on the other hand holds for me a different kind of energy.

We all know there are lots of Bad things happening in the world,because we are constantly told about them. And yet I also know many Good things are also being shared in this world. Many which we do not get to see..

There IS much LOVE in this world, and I also know how lucky I am living the life I do. For there are many shoes I would not wish to walk in. Yet we are all of us upon our paths, and all of us have choices. All of us are contributing to our experience within our Material Earth Walk.  I constantly give thanks daily for the Gifts I have been given and the path I am able to follow. 

Why do we humans seem to revel in Bad News, disasters, as we Gossip, and spread rumours?  Why is it so hard to show Love and share all those who do good.. I did some sharing of  bad news  on Dreamwalker’s Gardening blog where the allotments were broken into. Again I count my blessings.

The one thing I often speak about is Energy, Thoughts are Energy, its all about the energy we put out.

You see its all a matter of altering our perspective.

The first post I wish to share is Miro’s , I had been meaning to re-blog this post for some time  and asked his permission some months back. His wonderful poetry brings to the fore a True Warrior who is not afraid to do battle. He has been through his own Battles through out his life and yet he stands tall and is a true warrior worthy of his blog title Warrior Poets Wisdom . I invite you to listen to one of his Posts  in which he narrates his poem entitled LOVE Thy Enemy .

The second post I am sharing is also Poetry.. Kimberly has been through her own health struggles recently and here she shares her perspective on the seeds of Hope in her poetry as she speaks about “ The Weeds of Hate has taken over the gardens of purity”

My third post share is of pure LOVE this one literally popped up in my reader as I was writing this post so has to be shared  And This is how much I love you by MichelleMarie.  Thank you Michelle for all the Love you do share over at Tell Me About It 

And lastly as I conclude this Long post I just wish to share a couple of paragraphs I wrote several years on a post call ‘Finding Our Sacred Centre’ Where I said “

“Each of us in small ways can do amazing things through aligning our ‘Will’ of that of evolution, growing ‘light’, defeating the ‘darkness’ of inertia, lethargy and despair. We may find that part of our work in this world we live is focused towards the healing arts. Like myself I work among those who are disadvantaged  by the mere fact of their disabilities, whether that be physically or mentally challenged. It never ceases to amaze me how happy these wonderful individuals are with their lot in life. And how despite their difficulties they strive to take part, and never give in.”

“It has made me realise that each of us can Change the way we perceive our lot to be. Each of us can change our future, Heal the sick, improve humanities lot, if we so will and if we have the courage and the wisdom to know what’s right.”

Which of these Energies do you wish to see succeed? Are you sharing your LOVE?

Love and Blessings

Mandala~ in Retro.

This Post is via invitation of Sindy over at https://bluebutterfliesandme.wordpress.com/   to go Retro  In honour of Mercury Retrograde, Sindy has invited me to re-blog or re-fresh, or re-fresh a post from my archives .. I spent a while choosing which I should share and chose this.. one below.. Why? because I am into my own ‘Creative’ mood again, but I also realise that everything is only on loan..  As we learn to let things Go, and the Monks show us several of the traits I have posted on recently.. Patience, And Balance  as they show us all is in ‘transit’ as we merge and flow within the Universe.. 

Blessings Sue

Completed Mandala

So what is a Mandala?

The word Mandala (pronunciation mon- dah- lah) means “circle”.  A Mandala represents wholeness, a cosmic diagram reminding us of our relation to infinity, extending beyond and within our bodies and minds.

I thoroughly enjoyed painting this one which Shree designed Here . I used watercolours after printing off Shree’s design on some Ivory card which I use for Ink and washes . I commenced my painting starting from the centre. I lit a candle and set my intention and started to paint from the centre outwards.

Mandala

All the time I was painting I was seeing how Shree had cleverly constructed its design, and I used my own intuition as to what colours to paint . Seeing also the various forms which represented to me certain parts of our Earth and Universe..

For instance the wavy lines represented to me the ocean and how it surrounds all our lands, and within how we are made up of the majority of water. The waves also represented our Mass Consciousness joining each element together. The white spots on the blue, both in the centre and around the edges are the planets and stars of the Universe. The Rainbows in each of the four corners are the spectrum of colour found in Water and crystals combining the elements of Earth and Water. The white tear like shapes again is water and how it weaves its way through rivers and streams, our tears and the rain. The Red and Orange represents Fire and Energy, while the four red triangles with the S shape swirl to me represented the Wind of the four corners. Then after I had painted all the colours I went over Shree’s outline again in black paint.

 Even now each time I gaze upon it I see a new element. But for me I just enjoyed being so absorbed within the creation as I blended as one within its flow of energy.

Mandala – Sanskrit word meaning container for essence -energy, circle, totality, completion.

Mandala, is the ‘space’ where the inner and outer worlds meet, a place that can hold and manifest the powerful energy of intention .

Creating a Mandala The internet is full of Beautiful creations of mandalas and their meanings. Just take a look at some Here  

Google Images

Above are some monks who are creating their mandala out of coloured sand After its complete they brush it away, as they symbolise the letting go of the material and the impermanence of this world. They then take the sand to some natural running water so that it can merge with the Earth.

Below is a speeded up version of how Monks created a completed Mandala and its only just over 2 mins long for your to watch. Fascinating. 

 Let the rest of your week be creative as you follow the flow of Life
