One Of My Favourite..........

 One of my favourite moments ever was this morning back in March when Tarmal and Pixie were first allowed outside to play.
Their enthusiasm was enchanting as they dashed about, running in the fresh morning air for the very first time. 
 The joy that radiated from them as they ran about was so delightful, just gazing at these photos again took me back to this priceless moment, tears welling in my eyes as I reminisced this priceless occasion. 
 But what also stood out for me as I gazed at these old photos, was how easy it was for me to see where they were as they galloped around the garden, with everything newly planted, and some plants still in pots, my vision had not yet begun to unfold.
Now though, when they are in the garden they are extremely difficult to find, and they don't always answer me when I call them, as they know that that may mean that playtime is over and it is time to head inside.

I feel what struck me the most this afternoon though, was the realisation of my dream for them, a place where they could be safe from harm, free to feel the sun upon their fur, chasing butterflies and sleeping in the fresh air.

And in this instant, I felt an overwhelming sense of contentment, and a thankfulness for the universe guiding these two little treasures my way.............





Imagine.................

 Imagine a world of peace
 Where everyone is smiling
 Liberated and happy
 Running wild and free
 United in harmony, and living in love.............

A Girl.......

 A girl just can't have enough shoes, especially if they have been outside and they are full of new smells.
 Give Pixie a shoe or three and she will not move for hours, bless her wee soul, she takes possession of my shoes as soon as they leave my feet.
 Whereas Tarmal on the other hand, loves nothing more than the empty washing basket to play in, or, as in this case, just sit and watch the world drift by.........

Have An Ant Problem?

Have an ant problem?

Put out a nectar plate!
I have used apricot nectar, placed it near the nest, this way the ants will be kept busy collecting the nectar and taking it back to the nest to feed the young.


It works wonderfully well, with no death involved.


Also if you have problems with ants coming in your house, place a line of Vaseline, or something similar, as ants won't cross a greasy line........


All That Matters.....

All that matters
Is

Love Love Love......

Raw for 30 Days new trailer

Sitting In........

 Sitting in the garden this afternoon I realised how the power of love has transformed this once barren piece of earth, into a relaxing oasis of lush greenery.
 I began planting the back garden last March, so, it is not even one year old, and yet, when I look at these two images, it seems quite unbelievable that this space has been so completely transformed in one year.
It was a comment from a friend the other day got me thinking about this alteration, especially when I was asked what I did I do to create the abundant life that fills this space.

Sitting down to ponder this question I came to realise that the major factor to my gardens health is love!


I spend a lot of time here just sitting and loving this space, acknowledging each plant, stroking them, talking to them, and, welcoming each bloom that opens its beauty within this modest space.

I use no pesticides, and chemical free organic fertilisers once a month to ensure that they receive all the nutrients they require for health, I also do not over water, there is no reticulation, as I did not know how to install it, but, mainly I prefer to spend time with my garden once a day, connecting and admiring the grace the plants return to me.


 It is a place of peace, a place to rest, to stop for awhile and allow the cooling breeze to lull you into a state of restfulness.

 Whether inside, or out, the effect is the same, enticing you to lay back and surrender to the love that radiates around you........

We All Need............

 We all need to become a pen in the Sun's hand.
To allow our souls to paint our beauty upon the sky, and earth.
To move together as One, uniting through the power of love, in the language of light.
Still yourself each day, sit, in silent gratitude for the gift of life, express the unlimited thankfulness for the opportunity to live a human life.
For when one opens their eyes past the deception of society, and reconnects to the rays of translucent light that showers upon us endlessly we open the way for love to flow, out into this glorious planet we call home, and entwining itself around the heart of all upon her terrain, all life forms, trees, plants, animals, all united in a ripple of love that binds us all together endlessly......................

The Sacred........

 The sacred power of the circle can be traced back throughout history, the unity of kinship provoked by sitting in a sacred circle is not only beneficial for the individuals sitting in this sacred space, as the energy radiates outward to touch all life upon the planet.

Having been welcomed into a new community I am now sitting in sacred circles a few times each month, drinking ancient medicines, and chanting and singing to acknowledge each full moon.
 Perhaps my favourite medicine is cacao, for the energy she bestows upon humanity is the gift of love. Cacao in its pure form is unlike the chemically enhanced chocolate bars you find in the shops, raw cacao is nurturing and healing, it expands your heart, it is in fact medicine for the heart.
 Each month I now sit in a cacao circle, and for a few hours I am transported deep within my own heart, and at the same time I become merged with the others sitting there with me. Returning to this ancient ritual has awoken a slumbering part of myself, for in this pure state one is able to see past the illusion of modern society.
The magic of cacao does not end once the circle is closed, the bewitchment of cacao once taken, never leaves you, for in the luxurious moments of drinking raw cacao you are opened into an expanded state of awareness, a place of love.

Time has now come for the recognition of the power of ritual, to again acknowledge the wisdom from the ancient cultures of this planet, for those still living outside the modern world, in harmony and peace with the earth, for these cultures hold more wisdom than they are given credit for, they are seen as barbarians, living in poverty in the jungles and deserts across the globe. However, these cultures are to key to humanities survival, and they are offer their teachings and wisdom to those seeking the truth.

I have been directed to follow a path that has lead me to sit with the energies of holiness once again, sharing space with the beautiful beings who have brought this ancient practice to the shores of Australia, I recognise this is no accident, that every situation/relationship/challenge lead me to this moment. For in all the preparation that I had done in being Gemel I opened the path to love, and closed the doors on fear and pain.

Six months ago I was still struggling, alone in a city that I did not feel part of, with no people present in my life story that understood me on any level, now though I understand the years of disconnection and sorrow, I needed to experience the detachment of living in modern society, and, the harrowing pain of ego love, before I could reconnect with the power of true, unconditional, love............

Life As I Knew It.................

 Life as I knew it, is now, officially over!
 As suddenly I am in full bloom, having shed the layers of my yesterdays completely, waking this morning profoundly transformed.



Yesterday was a day of mystical wonder, which incidentally did not occur randomly, I actually created it. 
After following the web of synchronicity that has woven it's spell throughout my story for the last few months, I have finally opened fully to embrace the magic that had entered my life.
As I deepen my connection with the Dreamspell Calendar, having following this natural time calendar for some years now the quickening has completely altered my  state of being, the changes have been subtle, but ending with a climax yesterday that has taken my breath away!
 Listening to the inner voice that alerts me to be watchful of the events and people that enter my story I knew that yesterday was a day of intensity, one that held the ability to alter the course of my story.
The energies engulfing the planet monumental.
 Leading me closer to home.
 From the moment I opened my eyes yesterday I had a feeling that something was going to happen, I had a strong feeling that I had to cancel some scheduled training I was expected to attend at work, there was a distinct feeling that I was not meant to be going to this. Throughout the morning I pondered the situation and wondered how to get out of it, as morning inched it's way towards midday the unsettled feeling within intensified.
I was suddenly alerted to my mobile vibrating in my pocket, lifting the phone into view I noticed the message from was the office, with the word training clearly visible.
First thought was to discard it, but then I opened the message and read it.
The training had been cancelled!
Relieved I set off home.


Having no plan as to what I would do I prepared a simple lunch, just as I was to sit down to eat, another message appeared on my phone, a friend asking if I was up for a visit this evening.
I did not even consider that this was a work night, I said yes, and then asked him to stay for dinner, he accepted and I spent the rest of the afternoon relaxing, enjoying an afternoon at home.
After he got here we chatted out in the garden for awhile until I had this overwhelming urge to take him to the beach, so we headed off just in time to watch the sun set.

On the drive down to the beach I told him about my favourite part of the beach, where rugged limestone cliffs meet the sea, and my wish to get past them.
To which he replied, no time like the present!

The sea was quite rough, the swell very strong, our quest, a little risky!

At first we were both bothered about getting wet, because we had no intention of swimming, or paddling, but after a time of being knee deep in water we finally gave up, mainly because we were laughing so much at the fun we were having by living in the moment.
A feeling of euphoria welled up inside me, I felt liberated and free for having had the courage to brave the swell of the ocean and exploring new ground, with a companion who not only shared my enthusiasm, but felt the same, we decided, in the worst case scenario we would climb up and head back through the dunes!
Not to be one put of by the rising level of the water, we braved the sharp rocks and furious waves and made our way back the way we had come.

Heading back to the car, wet through and sandy we were united in a bond of wonder, we were living inside the moment.

It was astonishing.

Back home for the next few hours we chatted about our seaside adventure as we ate dinner, and then, chatted some more, until the suggestion of going for a night swim arose!

We smiled at each other and it was agreed, the sea was beckoning us again.

Arriving at the beach car park to find not even one light to illuminate the beach, put us off for maybe a second, then we headed off down the steps and into the darkness to the waiting playground below.
Leaving our clothes in a pile we dashed into the warm waters.
Although the waves were relatively small, they had immense power, it did not take long until we had both been knocked over and were rolling with laughter at the force of the ocean, it was like we were skittles in a bowling alley, every time we stood up, she knocked us down immediately.
I can't say there had ever been such a perfect moment, above us the heavens twinkled as the planets and stars in Father Sky watched us frolicking upon our Earth Mother.

It was perfection.

Heading back to car once we noticed that the tide was coming in rather swiftly we climbed the steps in  a state of rapture.

Completely at one with each other and, everything around us.

Arriving back at the car we realised it was nearly midnight, and, both of us had work today, but it did not seem to matter, nothing mattered, except the extreme happiness that radiated from us, pulsating in perfect unison all we passed.

As I prepared for bed after he left I was wondering how I would sleep, I was wide awake, full of an energy unlike anything I have ever experienced. 

Sleep did eventually come, I think I managed four hours, which normally would see me shattered for the whole day, but, even now as I type I am still buzzing!

Something altered in me last night, I feel as if I have walked out of one body and into another, a change has occurred on a cellular level and I know I am not qualified to understand, nor explain what that really means.
All I know is it is my time to soar, I have finally begun to fly................

Attuning The Tone......

 Attuning the tone in the house as I prepared for an energy session yesterday was as always, a time of sacredness.
 Sitting in mediation for an hour prior to my friends arrival, focusing on opening my heart to allow the  flow of universal love to work through me saw the atmosphere of the house become even more tranquil that it normally is.
 The haunting harmonies softly playing on the stereo, coupled with the intoxicating scent of incense wafting on the gentle morning breeze had already worked its magic on Tarmal, and with the intensity I also felt running throughout my own body, I was curious to see how the session would be.
 Having trained in many healing modalities over the years I now find that I follow none of the teachings I was given, now, I open to allow the universe to work through me, to guide me.
This has been the first session I have done in quite sometime, and after a major personal shift I knew this was going to be a powerful and eye opening encounter, not just for my friend, but, also for me.
 As I sat in the stillness as my friend slowly came round, I was astounded at the intensity of the force that worked through me.
At times I had to remove my hands from his body, as the force surging through me was too much to handle.
 I have felt the force of love move through me before, to a degree where tears flow down my cheeks in gratitude for the honour of feeling such purity within me, but what I felt yesterday defies words.
At times I thought that my heart would explode.
Even now a day later the energy still radiates not just in me, but within my home.
As I have vowed to return to the work of the heart with a renewed passion I seem to have set in motion an opening from a higher power, one that refuses to be ignored, one that just implores to be shared.......

Love's Embrace......

 Love's embrace is everywhere.
Sometimes it is easy to see, felt in the warm embrace of a lovers touch.
Sometimes it appears before you in a moment of natural wonder, causing you pause and open yourself to the beauty before you.........

Why Are We Waiting.......

 Why are we waiting?
 We have been up for hours!
Attempted waking you up too.

 Saturday and Sunday mornings are not favourites with the furry trio, so use to me getting at at 04:30 every week day that their body clocks buzz happily away even on the weekends.
Miss Pixie's tactic is to bring one of her balls onto the bed and then proceed to have a solo game of football up and down the bed, which includes running all over me.
Cute?
Sure, but not when one is sleeping!
If that fails she will try biting my feet, and seeing it is now summer, there is no duvet between me and her dangerously sharp teeth! 
 Master Tarmal likes the softer approach, he comes purring and snuggling, and cuddles to suck his tail (like a child sucking a thumb) which I will have to admit, is the nicest way to be woken from sleep.

 Which leaves Spirit!
He is a complete other story, mainly because I am pretty sure he thinks he is the boss of the house, oh, who am I kidding, he pretty much is!
Looking all sweetness and light here, with his beautiful wide and innocent eyes, even I am fooled, momentarily anyway.
I have to admit, Spirit by far is the most annoying and determined feline I have ever crossed paths with, how he comes up with his ideas of waking me I will never know, his new favourite is stretching up to the bedside table and tapping the lamp, over and over again!
So, I get up and let him out, staggering back to bed for another hour or so sleep, until he is back at the bedroom window yowling to come in.

My new trick.
Pillow over the head, which equals silent bliss..................
