Life: The Great Mystery

Today, Spirit reminds us that not everything can be explained. Everything happens for a reason and yes, it is all about divine timing. Sometimes we think we are ready, but the Universe knows better. When the time is right … everything will be as it was always meant to be. We must let go of the need to explain things away.

It’s Time to Weave Some MAGIC!

We are upon the last few days of 2015, so there are some things we need to do before we go into next year. First we are going to reflect a little… and then we need to make a couple of lists and start letting go, truly letting go of all those things we no longer need. Then …. we will set something on fire and post some much needed reminders… and THEN….. we will start 2016 in a way that we have never started a year before… and we will weave magic the entire year… manifesting the life we want!

I am having one of those moments….

click to enlarge

click to enlarge

You know that moment when you want to write something deep and profound that will move others… to relay how you feel inside and there are just so many words that come to you that you can’t seem to get them in the right order???

I am having one of those moments….

I sit here taking a look back into my memory banks and browse upon all the most memorable moments of my life. I see all the good times and all the bad. I look over them carefully and pause for reflection. I search through my feelings about these moments and I realize quickly that the MOST important moments were the ones filled with love. All of the bad moments, important as well but for different reasons. The bad moments in life were times of growth and lessons to be learned. Those moments showed me the strength inside, they showed me how I have abilities greater than I thought possible. I am grateful for those moments but the moments that fill me with light are the moments that were made with love.

The moments in life where love is present are indeed for me the MOST important. The moments I want to reflect on most. Those are the moments when our spirit soar with the greatest power. When love is in our hearts, we become unstoppable, there are no mountains too tall to climb, no rivers too rapid to cross, no oceans to vast to overcome and no obstacle that is too difficult to stand in our way. When you meet someone who is filled with love you can’t help but feel it, absorb some of it yourself and then pass it on to others. Love is truly limitless. It fuels the light within us to levels unimaginable but definitely attainable. The more you are filled with love the more you feel capable of doing and becoming. The light within grows brighter and brighter with every moment that you are filled with love.

Think about the moments in your life that are the most memorable. You will find the bad days and the strength that they unveiled and you will see the growth that those days created. You will then move on to the good days and how much love was felt on those days. You will see that those were days where moments were laced together with true love. Those were the days where your smile was the brightest, your heart filled to the brim and nothing could possibly get in your way of experiencing what we all wish to attain… HAPPINESS in it’s purest form. LOVE.

Today, I am filled with endless LOVE!

Many Blessings,

Dear Moon in the Night Sky

Dear moon in the night sky
Rain down your magic so that tonight I might fly
Take me to places of love and light
Take me to where a lover will hold me tight
Someone who sees me and really cares
Someone who will not make me shed anymore tears
Bring me a love that is ever so deep and true
Someone who’s actions match the words “I love you”
Allow me to hold on to this magic forever and always
For the rest of my life and all of my days
Dear moon in the night sky
Rain down your magic so that tonight I might fly.

So mote it be

Who is Raventalker?

Edited in Lumia SelfieI’ll tell you who I am …. for one, I’m a mess! A great big, giant mess of a woman! I love way too much and believe in myself way too little. I have baggage, loads and loads of baggage. The good thing is, I know about the baggage I carry and I am always trying my best to lighten the load. I am forever working on being a better me. Always working toward resolving any issues I may have with myself or my past, always teaching myself new things and eager to grow in as many ways as I possibly can. I won’t lie though, some things scare me to death so I dare not say that I am fearless in any way. I worry all the time and quite often about things that will never happen. I am ever curious and some might say a bit crafty 😉 .

I love finding new ways to be creative and express myself in all forms of art. I have dabbled in painting, stained glass, lampwork, weaving, sewing, knitting, leather work, sculpting, prop building, photography and writing .. just to name a few. The act of visualizing something and then working with your hands to make this vision a reality is an exciting challenge I am always ready to take on. I don’t have to be the best at anything, I just try to be the best me and do my own personal best at whatever challenge I decide to take on. I land where I land, on top, in the middle or even sometimes at the bottom.. as long as I have felt like I did my best, it doesn’t matter where others may rank me.

I am a hopeless romantic, a dreamer of dreams and a believer in magic. Some might say that magic isn’t real, dreams are for the foolish and that romance never lasts…. I say, we each make our own magic, dreams are worth following and romance is exactly what the world needs. Romance, magic and dreams die only if we allow them to. In my world, these things are what keep me smiling and hoping. They are why I have never given up this fight for life, even when my world seemed to be falling apart… magic, dreams and romance kept me going. I know they exist. They are a part of my soul.

I laugh, I cry, I hurt, I love, I create, I learn, I teach, I care, I fear, I worry, I dream, I hope, I believe, I play, I stress, I get emotional, I joke around, I try many things, I never give up on something I believe in, I keep going when others have let go.

Well, now you know… this is me, Raventalker…. that crazy woman, with all that baggage, creating art and believing in the silliest of things.

Many Blessings,

Serendipity – Magical Moments

I love how the world stays constantly mysterious to us and how magical moments come from many sources. You never know when magic will pop into your life and how it will turn out.

I found this $5 bill in my wallet today … funny being that this is today’s date!! Anyone know who did this and why? I nearly handed it over to pay for my breakfast this morning. As I was switching it from one hand to the other I saw the writing, did a double take, checked my phone to verify today’s date and there it was. I quickly put it back in my wallet and grabbed some other bills to pay for breakfast! How odd and how fun. It reminded me of the movie Serendipity. 🙂

Please share to help me solve the mystery.

Our Connection to the Rain

There certainly is something special about the rain… don’t ya think?

Feeling quite artistic this morning. Admiring the beauty that magically comes after the rain.

What is it about the rain that makes us feel so much more deeply? Could it be water being associated with our emotion and rain drops resembling tears?

The rain is said to soothe and lull us to sleep with its rhythmic sounds. There is a hush that comes over the Earth as the rain begins to fall and the only sound is that of the rain pounding against your shelter, your own heartbeat and your breathing.

Maybe it’s how the rain slows us down, physically and mentally. We certainly slow our pace and think before we rush out into it. Sometimes we even stay put and wait it out. It’s the perfect time to curl up in favorite place to read, watch a movie or just hang out with your favorite person or pet.

There certainly is something special about the rain… don’t ya think?

Here are some red roses on their last days, fading with the times, soon to give way to it’s life so another can be born.

Many Blessings,

There’s Magic to be Found

There is magic to be found every day. 

Some days it is really hard to see the magic that is there, but it is still there.
Some days we really have to work on shifting our view to see the good in that day.
Some days it is easy.
Some days it’s right there in front of us, waving hello.
Some days it is hidden beneath a whole bunch of crap.
Some days we really have to dig.
Some days it’s a surprise.
Some days we need it more than others.
Some days we forget that its always there.
Some days, no matter how hard we look, we just can’t see it.
Some days all we need to do is feel it.
Some days it guides us.
Some days we don’t have to search.
Some days it saves us.

The magic is there… it is always there. If you can’t see it… look again. If that doesn’t work… keep looking. Eventually you’ll see it and if not today, there is tomorrow. 

Many Blessings,

Magic on Ordinary Days

WP_20140623_003Some people spend their entire lives wishing for magic to happen. Whether it be their knight riding in on a white horse to rescue them from their mundane life or being followed by a magical trail of glitter and sparkles where ever they go, they keep wishing for magic. What they fail to see is the magic that is already there. Yep, right their in their lives every single day. We all have it! Magic isn’t something only a select few get to experience. Magic lives in the lives of all of us if we wish to see it.

Here’s some everyday magic you may have not noticed:

A smile from a stranger
A compliment for no reason at all
Finding something that was once lost
A cuddle from someone you love
A kiss
A kind gesture
Finding a penny (face up)
Finding a 4 leaf clover 😉
Laughter from a child
Giggles between friends
The song of the birds
The soft scent of honeysuckle floating on a breeze
Positive words
Feeling good about who you are
Completing a complicated task
Finding understanding
Knowing who you are
Being in the moment
Peace within
Finding your balance (even if only for a moment)
Doing for others
Spreading positivity

You see these may not seem very magical, but they are. These are just a few of the simple things in everyday life that make us feel good. Imagine for a moment a life without all of these things. Yeah, not so nice huh? Drab and sad to say the least.

Magic isn’t about fairy tales and sparkle, it’s not about a bunch of hocus pocus and making things appear with a twitch of your nose. Magic is about appreciating all parts of life and walking your path with love.

Magic is noticing those things that are mostly unseen, finding an appreciation for all life here on Earth, and harnessing the happiness life offers us.

Most important … Magic is love.  Plain and simple .. LOVE. Love yourself, love others, love living. LOVE.

Many Blessings,

The Magic of Friday the 13th

friday 13thToday is Friday the 13th and a Full Moon!

You will hear most everyone today talking about their fears and how they dread Friday the 13th … add the Full Moon on top of it and people go frantic! I’ll just stand to the side and shake my head. What is there to fear? Do any of them have a legitimate reason to be afraid of the number 13? How about the moon? Do they really have reason to fear the moon?

Let start with the moon… particularly the full moon because that is the moon most feared. What does the Full Moon actually do? Well from where I stood on my deck last night, it provided a glowing light in what could have been a very dark place. We will leave out the magical parts because “most” don’t understand that anyway… they are just afraid of a large mass in the night sky that is turned in such a way that it reflects the most sunlight it possibly can on it’s surface for the month.  Yep… real scary! Run for your lives!

Now lets look at the number 13. There are a lot of stories from olden times that contribute to the superstitions but that was the past. It already happened and for whoever it effected back then.. yep that was pretty unlucky but the number itself wasn’t the cause of the bad luck.. the cause was created by the people who committed the violent acts.

Number 13 = made from the number 1 which is a symbol of new beginnings and the number 3 which symbolizes creativity, communication, compassion and manifestation. Wow when you break it down, the number 13 looks pretty darn amazing!

So tell me now…. what is there to fear?

Here’s a bit magic I found today, on Friday the 13th with the full moon overhead:

I’ve been outside singing to the fairies this morning hunting four leaf clovers and taking photos in the rain…  Most will just want to stay inside when it rains, saying how yucky it is … but me… I think the rain is beautiful! I found 16 four leaf clovers this morning and captured some beautiful pictures with my camera. Have a look at the rain that everyone else avoided. (click on the gallery for best viewing)

Taken with Lumia Selfie

I am the girl next door who didn’t follow the crowd.
I’m that twinkle you see when you look into my eyes.
I’m the magic that knows no bounds.
I’m the whisper that says, you can do it.
I’m the odd one, the weirdo, the freak.
I’m sometimes the wise one.
I’m the one who laughs at myself.
I’m the artist, who just loves to create.
I’m the scared one, needing a hug.
I’m the witch with a cackle like no other.
I’m the sun, the moon and the stars.
I’m the friend to the fairies.
I’m the worried one, hoping for the best.
I’m the messenger of Spirit.
I’m the light and the dark.
I’m the seeker, wanting to be found.
I’m the smile that I share.
I’m the listener.
I’m the creative one filled with wonder.
I’m the bird with no visible wings.
I’m more than what you see.
I’m me.

What We Don’t See…

I stepped outside the office for a little break, of course with camera in hand as always. You never know when a photo opportunity will reveal itself! It’s warm out but there is a soft breeze out that is sooooo refreshing. I stood there for a moment, taking in the fresh air. The light scent of honeysuckle carried over from the field across the road, filled the air as it swept past me.

I walked over to the retaining wall at the side of the building, looking at the clover and clover flowers. I was hoping to spot a nice big bumble bee or a butterfly to photograph, but no such luck. There was a dandelion that was slowly fading away and some clover flower, so not wasting a moment I got my camera ready to capture their beauty. I moved around the side of the building to see what else I could see and there was my buddy the bumble bee… after capturing a couple of clicks I looked next to me and saw my friend the ladybug so I stepped back just a bit to get her in focus and started clicking away before she flew off.

I went back inside and got back to work, when I had a moment free I loaded the photos onto my computer from the card and as I was cropping the photos of the ladybug I noticed something in one of the photos. It was this tiny little bubble of dew hanging from a small blade of grass. I had completely missed it when I was outside. It was right there just inches away from the ladybug but I was focused so intently on the ladybug I missed this magical little bubble that was right there in front of me the whole time.

You know life is often just like this moment. When we focus so intently in one direction, we miss what is just in front of us.

Here’s the clicks I captured on my little 3 minute break: Click on the images to enlarge them for better viewing.

Beyond the Rabbit Hole

rabbit holeJust there, beyond the rabbit hole, is a world of magic waiting to be found.

What adventures might there be beyond that magical rabbit hole? One will only know if you choose to venture through to the other side.

There’s a land there of mystery and magic just waiting for you. Do you dare take a peek?

Who’s to say what’s waiting on the other side. Curiosity has my mind reeling and an excitement of the unknown fills me to the brim.  I do think I must have a little peek. Come on … won’t you come along for the journey with me?

The Magic Inside a Snowflake

snowflake2Soft, cold, wet and sparkly and ever so small … but inside is magic! LOADS and LOADS of Magic!

What’s better than a snow day? Whether you’re a child or just a child at heart… snow days are the best!

The weather forecast comes on .. snow is predicted and we all wait with anticipation. Watching the skies, waiting for the first sighting.. hoping for it to accumulate enough to keep us from having to go to school or work! Morning comes and BINGO!! SNOW DAY!

A heavy sigh and the magic fills us. A quiet hush has covered the land like a warm winter quilt. Children start thinking of snowball fights, forts to build, sledding, snowmen and simply enjoying their day out of school. Adults get warm and cozy by the fire, make ready… pots of soup and cups of hot tea and cocoa and instead of the usual rush around to get chores done… they find time to let go and relax even if just for a moment.

The world around us just seems to slow down a bit and relax when the snow comes down. It’s a time to slow our normally busy pace and just enjoy the day!

Who knew that inside that tiny little snowflake was so much magic that it could change an entire day… if you’re lucky … even two!

Many Blessings,

March Full Moon

nearly full moonThe March Full Moon is known by many names: The Chaste Moon,  the Seed or Worm Moon, the Crow Moon, Full Crust Moon, The Full Sap Moon or the Lenten Moon.

As the temperature begins to warm and the ground begins to thaw, earthworm casts appear, heralding the return of the robins. The more northern tribes knew this Moon as the Full Crow Moon, when the cawing of crows signaled the end of winter; or the Full Crust Moon, because the snow cover becomes crusted from thawing by day and freezing at night. The Full Sap Moon, marking the time of tapping maple trees, is another variation. To the settlers, it was also known as the Lenten Moon, and was considered to be the last full Moon of winter.

It is a time to plant mental seeds – thoughts of success and hope. This is also a time of purity and newness. It’s the time to bless the magical herbs and plants in your garden and to start preparing the soil for the seeds that you will plant. It’s also the time to mentally prepare yourself for new experiences, a new job, pregnancy, taking a trip, or bringing a new animal into your home.

Wave goodbye to Winter and hello to Spring’s New Beginnings!

No matter what you call it, are you ready for the newness that the March full moon brings?

Many Blessings,

How to Live a Magical Life

hawkThe common person thinks of wand waving mystical types when one starts talking about magic and living in a magical world…. they think of bibbity bobbity boo and mysterious incantations …   but that’s not it at all.

To live a magical life .. one must do one thing…. LOVE.

There is no need for props, fancy words, wicked clothing or any of the such… one must simply… love.

With all that you do… do it with a heart filled with love:

See the world with love
Walk your path with love
Connect with others … with love
Listen with a heart of love
Treat yourself with love
Allow all of your actions to be done from the heart and with love and care

Once you are able to master that …. you’ll see that your world has been magical all the while. Nothing else was ever needed… just pure and simple … LOVE.

Many Blessings,

Knocking at Your Door

purple passion

Magic is knocking …. knock, knock knocking at your door.
Will you let it in or leave it waiting behind the door?

It’s there all around you, waiting for you to notice…
Wondering if you’ll ever overcome this sad kind of blindness.

Magic is knocking …. knock, knock knocking at your door.
Will you let it in or leave it for others to explore?

Sometimes it’s easy to see and at other times it may not.
Once we begin to believe… it’s noticed quite a lot!

Magic is knocking …. knock, knock knocking at your door.
Will you let it in or are you still unsure?

Magic doesn’t hurt, not one little bit.
It heals hurt, pain and sorrow and lifts the Spirit!

Magic is knocking …. knock, knock knocking at your door.
Will you let it in or carry on without a notion just like before?

Magic is knocking …. knock, knock knocking at your door.

Magical Monday – Will

WOW!!! This is the oddest thing ever … ok well maybe not ever .. but it certainly is an odd part of today!

So, today is Monday and as usual it’s time for me to post something for Magical Mondays. First I set off to see if there was something magical I could capture through my camera lense.. but nothing really clicked for me. I then went to my Vision Quest deck to see if something magical would pop up there and this is what happened next!

I took out the deck and began shuffling, thinking about Magical Mondays.. hoping something inspirational would arise from the deck to help me out this morning. I shuffled and shuffled and at the end  of my shuffling I looked down at the deck and this card was laying on top.. face up. I said to the card, “now what are you doing there .. get back into the deck” .. so I popped it back into the deck, shuffled a bit more and then thought .. I know I will take this deck to someone else and let them just pull a card… guess what card they pulled… yep! This one! CRAZY!

So here we go:
2 of Fire – Will

The message reads: You don’t need to manipulate anything in or outside of yourself. If you stay centered now, everything will turn out well.

Your present task is to find the good will that nature gave you and let it do the work you used to take upon yourself.

You see I began the day with struggle.. I struggled against my own nature and against my own self trust to find the words needed for today’s magical post. Just when I thought I had nothing, Spirit showed me that magic is everywhere and in everything. How else do you explain the card laying face forward and on top of my deck, being pushed back into the deck and then being pulled right back out by another. MAGIC!

When a message is meant to be known.. then it will make it’s way known by any means possible… the will of Spirit here has prevailed and the message has come across to us all now.

Trust ourselves, trust in our own will.. stay focused and what needs to be done … will be done and with a whole lot less effort than we imagined.

Ordinary Magic

Today I want to take a moment to talk about the world around us and the magic that goes unseen by most.  You see magic isn’t always those things that take our breath away and then again .. it’s all in how you “see”. Most think of magic as a trick or something even made up… not real. Magic is very real.. magic is inside us .. all of us. Yep, that’s right.. magic lives inside of every one of us. It’s a part of everything… you just have to know how to “see” it.

I was standing at the window this morning as my breakfast was warming in the microwave and I was in awe of how the sun was shining through the leaves of a tree just outside the window. When my breakfast had finished warming, I put it on my desk, grabbed my camera and on my way out to photograph the tree.. I stumbled across a few other magical moments that caught my eye. You see beauty and magic can be found in the most ordinary of things, if only you wish to see it.

The Birth of a New Day

How to start your day with magic: Rise before the sun and behold the wonders that reveals themselves before you.

A co-worker said to me yesterday, “You see things the rest of us miss”. She had said this after I had sent her a photo I had taken yesterday afternoon of a cloud with a silver lining and a rainbow effect.

Life is what you open yourself up to see. You can walk around with your eyes focused on the ground, watching your every step.. or you can lift your eyes to the wonders that are around you. It’s a choice… a conscious effort.

What choices will you make today?

Many Blessings,

Magical Mondays

I’m going to try and dedicate Mondays to Magical posts. Don’t be surprised if you find that my magical posts are what one might expect. I’m all about mixing things up and keeping it real. That being said.. let’s move on to our first Magical Monday post!

Mondays are hard… it’s back to work from a weekend that is always too short. Let’s take time every Monday to empower ourselves, rev up our engines and charge our week for positive thoughts, actions and manifestations.

Find a chant, phrase or even a simple thought that fits your needs for the week ahead and repeat it as often as needed throughout the day.

Today’s chant comes from a post I made this morning on another group.

Singing this chant in my best munchkin land voice from the Wizard of Oz:
Millions of Dollars, Millions of Dollars, Millions of Dollars are on the way… Millions of Dollars, Millions of Dollars will fill my bank account today!

One’s Idea of Magic

I was having a playful conversation with my husband tonight … he was having a tummy ache and I said to him … “one kiss from me love and your tummy will be all better”. He kept changing the subject and I asked… ” don’t you believe in my magic love?”. He would never answer me, so I walked away. I said to him If you believed in my magic, you could feel all better but since you don’t believe you’ll just have to suffer.. lol. A few minutes later I said ” you know what… I believe in you” .. he said “but I’m not magic”. I just left it at that, but you know what? He is.. he just doesn’t know it.

One kiss from him reduces my stress to absolutely nothing. My worries, my fears, my concerns.. everything is gone with just a kiss. Now  that’s magic! Too bad he doesn’t even realize it… but all is not lost .. because I know he is.. I feel it every time I look at him.. every time he touches me and every time his lips touch mine.

Magic you see isn’t pulling a rabbit out of a hat or turning bad men into frogs … magic is something more special than that!

Many Blessings,

Daily Insight – Medicine Woman

Take a good look at this card … she has inside her a light ever glowing.. the sun although it sets, it’s light continues to shine. She also reveals to us an endless river, flowing from the heart this river is symbolic of her love. She holds in her hands, fire. Surrounding her is Spirit and Universal energy. She reminds us of what we each carry inside ourselves. We have the tools and the power to create whatever life we want for ourselves and we have the ability to heal with our own resources.

She holds her head up, proud of who she is and what she carries inside herself. She knows what power she holds and she uses it wisely and to the best of her abilities.

Know your own abilities, know that you have within you the necessary tools and resources to create the life you want. The Medicine Woman does not wait to become.. SHE IS.

Become aware of your own abilities, your own medicine inside… and you will see your world transform.

Many Blessings,

Brother Crow

Crows are messengers calling to us about the creation and magic that is alive in the world today and available to us.

This morning as I was getting ready for work… I could hear a crow outside my window cawing up a storm… and then I heard his message more clearly than ever.

It wasn’t that the Crow had a message for me this morning… it was that he carries with him a message always… you hear it when you are ready. He is forever singing out his message by his magical caw… it is up to us when we are ready to hear what he has to say.

Many Blessings for a magical day!

Alignment Ceremony

Funny how just a comment can set a whole series of events in motion. I must tell the whole story because … well I am RavenTALKER of course and so staying true to my name I’m going to tell it all! hahahahahahaha

It all started when I saw a friend post the statement “Negativity Be Gone!” .. I responded that she needed to smudge. She then replied back wanting to know what smudge was and how to use it. I private messaged her all the details and since the conversation came up .. I grabbed a bit of smudge from my desk and smudged myself … a little smudging never hurt anyone  .

I went on about my evening chores and as it was nearly time for bed, I went downstairs to take my night time shower… Instead of the regular shower I took a more ceremonial shower that I call a “cleansing bath”. I’ll explain these things at the end of my post.

Out of the shower I was all ready for bed… I was urged to drink a considerable amount of water by Spirit and so I grabbed a 16 oz bottle of water and chugged nearly the whole thing down and got into bed. Spirit still had more for me to do… so I got up once again and picked up a small bottle of lavender essential oil that sits on my bedside table…  I dabbed a bit of the oil on my forehead, on the top of my head and then on each wrist, the arch of each foot and then in the palm of each hand. Why did I do all of this? I have no idea other than I was guided to do so.

Ok so am I ready for bed now? NOPE! I have on my bedside table several crystals. I first picked up 2 crystal necklaces I have laying there, one amethyst and one rose quartz… I wrapped them around my wrists like bracelets but thought.. that will drive me nuts… so I took them off and slid them inside my pillow. I then arranged some of the crystals on my table in a way that I was guided to arrange them. I have no real idea why the position of each just kept moving them around until I felt satisfied that they were where they needed to be.

OKAY… now am I ready for bed??? YES! Whew..

Right away as I lay my head onto the pillow, visions began rolling in.

I am in a ceremony of some sort and I will now describe to you what happened:

There is a large circle with many people sitting around it’s edge. Inside the circle is a fire and a man dancing in a very spastic like inside. There are 2 guys with long poles also inside the circle with the dancing medicine man. Each man stands at the center point of the fire on each side as the medicine man dances between them. He seems to be in a rhythmic trance as we dances very wildly between the two guys with the long poles…. Now as he dances near one guy .. the man will slam the pole to the ground making a very loud thunderous noise and the medicine man will dance to the other and the same thing happens as the medicine man nears the guy with the pole.. he slams it down creating a loud thunderous noise. It is as if the pole symbolize lightning and as the medicine man draws near each guy they slam the pole to the ground to symbolize the lightning strike…. this goes on for quite some time until finally the medicine mans rhythms seem to be less wild and more balanced in the center of the two holding the poles… which make him centered in front of me. I am sitting at the 11 o’clock position of the north point of the circle. I am dressed in a natural linen fabric and have white dots painted down the center of my body from my head .. past my belly button.  The medicine man now starts dancing toward me and back toward the fire.. back and fourth.. back and fourth … again for some time. The medicine man now turns to face the fire and swished his arms from behind him up and toward the fire and into the air. He does this for a while and at the end of the dance he walks over to me and places his hand on the top of my head… the odd thing was that his hand seemed to glow as if he carried fire in his hand… but there was no physical fire there. The ceremony was now complete but everyone continued sitting in the circle in meditation for sometime through the night.

I was told that this was an alignment ceremony getting me ready for the next phase of alignment.

I love how spirit works and how you just never know when wonderful gifts like this will come along.

Many think I am weird and even more so because I speak freely about the visions that I see. I am not worried about what others think of me and my experiences. I feel these experiences.. these visions are a gift and gifts are for sharing. I may be a bit odd and weird but I enjoy every minute of it!

*Smudging: smudging is a way of cleansing yourself, your space or area and your possessions or tools with herbal smoke. Most commonly used is sage but you can add to the mix many herbs depending on what you are cleansing.. the reason for cleansing or just preferences. Sweetgrass, lavender, tobacco are also common additions used in making smudge.

*Ceremonial/Ritual  Bath:  Depending on reason/purpose for the bath, herbal water may be used and meditation also takes place .. this is another way of cleansing before ritual or ceremony.

What Tomorrow Brings

hdr_00021_0What tomorrow brings…. Tomorrow is a new day… A new beginning….

Life is what you make it. You get what you put into it.

Life has it’s ups and downs and all-arounds … it’s not what happens to us but how we react to what happens to us that determines how our day will be, how it will end and how the next day begins.

You have the power within you to make your own life whatever you want it to be. Let’s do be reasonable tho, of course we would all like to be millionaires but that’s not likely to happen. We can create our own magic, our own happiness and our own success.

Many walk through this life seemingly asleep and zombie-like. They just go through the motions of the day without truly living. So much is lost for them. They do not see their own possibilities. Life is constantly buzzing all around them and yet they are numb to it.

We all go through periods of seclusion and detachment from the world.. how long that period lasts is up to us. Some seem to stay in that period for their whole lives. I am sad for those who feel stuck in that period. My wish today is that they are able to see the world with new eyes and see their way out of this dark time. I can’t imagine how it must be to live everyday without light, love and a zest for truly living.

If you take nothing else from my words today.. my hope is that you know these few things: You do have the power inside you to turn your world around. Life’s possibilities are endless. It is never too late. Dreams do come true. Life is worth living. Love and happiness are inside you always. Magic is real.

Many Blessings for a magical day,

My Magical Life

I love, love, love my magical life.. I really do.. it brightens my days and brightens the light inside me as well.  That being said.. I have to tell you about my commute home from work this afternoon. Here we go:

Well, earlier today I was blogging about work ethics and about doing the best you can do and then taking it a step further … all the while that I was writing about this I was thinking about my husband because he is that way as well. He just cannot make himself do something half way. He always has to go a step beyond what one might think you should do so that he does it better than what was done before.

Well.. the thoughts of my darling husband lingered through my mind all the way home. Every time I think of him, I can’t help but smile. It’s one of those smiles that starts right in the center of your being and just jumps right out onto your face as though it cannot be contained! So, I’m driving home and thinking about him and smiling all the while and I thought to myself, “thoughts of my hubby are just fluttering through my mind like a butterfly upon a breeze” I know,  I know.. I’m sappy that way.

Just a few minutes into my drive and “Our Song” comes on the radio… ok so you know I had to chuckle a bit to myself as a grin covered my entire face. I reach over and turn up the radio and at that moment I am in a que to merge onto another section of the interstate and as I sat there singing along to “our song” I look over at the traffic and in the median bounces a butterfly right past my car.. LOL! Finally I make it up to the merge and as traffic from the other lanes are mingling a truck moves over in front of me with the license plate of 777LVV. I think to myself…. “OMG, can this get much better!” You see we were married on 7/7/07 :-). I continue singing and making my way home.

The song is over and I can’t get much happier. I’m on my way home, I have a wonderful husband and life is pretty good today. As these thoughts fill my mind, it’s time to merge again and you won’t believe this but now I am behind another car with one of those angelic numbered license plates. This time it’s 444, which means the angels are surrounding you and  with you. You can imagine, I am all grins!

My commute is about an hours drive and now I am getting really close to home. Again, I am qed up to merge onto the last bit of highway just before hitting the back streets to home. I’m sitting there at a mere crawl inching my way forward, the windows are down, the radio is on and a cool breeze comes into my window. I breathe a heavy sigh and think to myself,” What a beautiful day” just then a car slowly passes by and yep you guessed it another plate with angelic numbers. This time it’s 111, which means opportunity and new doorways opening up.

Just seconds after seeing the 111, this thought rolled into my head,  “I just need to let go of thinking about the things I don’t have and concentrate on what I do have in my life”. Just as that thought finished, I look over and there is yet another car with 444 on the license plate! I’m thinking.. no one will ever believe this! This was the universe confirming my path or at least that’s how I like to believe.

Just amazing! Funny how life works. Those things that can’t be explained. Some call them coincidences … I call it magic!

Love life and watch it love you back!

Many Blessings,

From a thought to a dream

From a thought to a dream
From a dream to reality
We all have within us this ability

To make our wishes and dreams come true
The power is there, sitting deep inside you

Thoughts become words, words become action
The universe works in reaction

Speak out loud, what you wish to see
Answers will soon come to thee

With honor and love in your heart
For the dream to come true
You must play an active part

Walking in the direction of your dream
It’s not as easy as it may seem

Obstacles sometimes block the way
Never give up, no matter what anyone has to say

Positive thoughts and actions ease the trail
Don’t worry about “What if I fail”

Where there is a will, there is a way
That’s what I’ve always heard them say

So follow your heart and you shall soon see
What was once a dream, has now become reality!

Many Blessings,

The Magic of the Spider

Ok so all night through my dreaming I had a huge spider that stayed on me… it was huge but harmless but still creeped me out …where ever I went .. it went with me. It would crawl all over my back mostly and sometimes go to the top of my head and sit there. Spiders have always creeped me out and so this was hard to deal with for most of the night. In my dreaming, I was just doing daily life kind of stuff… running errands, housework, regular work stuff and so on. The spider, no matter what I did … stayed on me though… never falling or jumping off.

I kept telling myself … spiders are good omens.. spiders are good .. get over it Holly… spiders are good…lol..

Eventually … I got over the creepy factor and was at peace with the spider being on me. I knew the spider meant me no harm and wasn’t going to bite me so at some point I just settled down inside and accepted the gift of the spider and a sense of calm and peace filled me.

So in honor of the spider that came to me in my dreaming last night, I want to share with you the magic the spider brings to your life.

A spider totem teaches you balance —
between past and future, physical and spirit, male and female.
She is strength and gentleness combined.
She awakens creative sensibilities
and reminds you that the past is always interwoven with the future.

Spiders are the keepers of the primordial alphabet
and can teach you how to write creatively.
Her body is shaped like the number 8 and she has 8 legs,
which is symbol of infinite possibilities of creation.
Her 8 legs represent the 4 winds of change and the 4 directions of the medicine wheel.

Spider’s message is that you are an infinite being who will continue
to weave patterns of life and living throughout time.
Do not fail to see the eternal plan of creation.

Those who weave magic with the written word usually have this totem.

Many Blessings,

Word of the day …. Magic!

What do you see.. feel ..or think … when you hear that word .. Magic ?

Me, I can’t help but smile.. for me so much comes to mind ..

I think of the full moon glowing so brightly in the midnight sky..
I see a golden sunset where the sky is full of magnificent colors..
I think of the sound of the leaves rustling on the ground in fall..
I see the country side filled with color suddenly when the winds change and the air cools in autumn..
I think of all the unseen around us ..
I think of the miracles that happen every day …
I see my children .. and remember the day they were born ..
It’s how I feel warm and fuzzy as my husband reaches out to hold my hand .. or when he brushes back my hair late at night..

It’s remembering the first kiss … his lips on mine and all the world fading away …
I think of all the dreams and wishes that have come and gone..
I feel my heart as it pounds when I lay my head on my husbands shoulder and inhale the scent I know as him and I am comforted and happy..

It’s winter’s first snow or spring’s first rain
It’s that four leaf clover you finally found
It’s being a kid and making snow angles on the ground

Magic to me is many things ..

It’s our song playing on the radio just as I was thinking of him
It’s letting go.. It’s opening up
It’s finding your place, your home.. your path
Its the laughter of a child
Its feeling free and going wild
Its in the trees, the flowers and all around
It’s fate It’s deja vu
It’s knowing
It’s in the shadows . .it’s in the light .. it’s throughout the day and even the night
It’s knowing when to stop or when to keep going on
It’s in your heart and in your soulIt’s a part of you ..
It’s something unexplainable.. just something you know.

It’s magic don’t you know!

Many Blessings,
