So often our own personal misery comes from what we continue to allow in our lives. It is only when we decide to love ourselves enough to bring end to whatever it is that is bringing that misery… we begin to find inner peace, balance and love.
Our final week of Juicy June! Not only is this a time when your story is changing but it’s also becoming. It’s becoming that life that brought you here to begin with. This is a week filled with magic and opportunities but you have to be active in playing the part of LIVING! Let’s make this last week of Juicy June the juiciest week ever!
Today, spend some time acknowledging the changes that have come to be in your life. Look at how far you have come and know that you are on your way to where you want to be. Your vision is more clear than ever. We are becoming the butterfly and taking on new experiences with a fresh new perspective.
The Universe is helping us continue down a better path. When we make mistakes.. and we will… the Universe will make sure it doesn’t last. Instead of being tortured by our mistakes for a long time.. those mistakes will come and go quickly til we finally find ourselves outside of those old habits.
The spirit has a way of healing that we will never understand. Life changes when we are ready for it to change. When we have let go of all those things that cause us pain. If your life isn’t moving forward… ask yourself.. what is it that you are still holing on to that you should let go.
Spirit talks through us today about being the phoenix and burning away all that is not needed in our lives so that we can be reborn into a new life. Can you imagine for a moment that your world, your life and you are brand new. None of those things that troubled you before… exist! YOU are BRAND NEW! Your new life is on the way! Are you ready?
WOW!!!! Super Charged New Moon on the way with Solar energy to boot! This is a time when manifesting new things into your life couldn’t possibly be any easier! This is a time of DREAMS coming TRUE! All your hard work and all the experiences you have gained over the years is starting to pay off and it’s going to be like winning the JACKPOT of LIFE!!! SO EXCITED!!!!
Happy New Moon, Happy New You, Happy New Everything!

Tonight I talk a bit about the New Moon. I speak about New Moon energy and give you a very helpful meditation that is designed just for the New Moon. This meditation will aid in spiritual growth, development and whatever newness that you would like add to your life. ENJOY!
With a new moon cycle. It is time to start those projects you’ve been wanting to get done, try new things, new techniques and possibly even new ways of thinking.
Now is a good time to do an overlook of your life and get rid of anything that doesn’t belong. Start thinking about where you want the rest of your life to go and start doing the things to get you there. Keep positive thoughts and a positive outlook as you move forward and use the energy of this New Moon to help boost you to the new beginnings that you want/need in your life.
If we want to change our own damaging behaviors in life… we must be our own guardian and constantly and consistently be watching ourselves .. be aware of those behaviors that are not good for us and make effort to change them.
Last night I went to bed and heard a little nudge from Spirit telling me to get back up and smudge, and so I did. I made sure and smudged really well with sage and palo santo wood and then made my way back to bed. I knew instantly I would be gifted with a ceremonial vision.
The vision that came to me: I was painted all white with some sort of powder, from head to toe and laid out on a slab of pine. There was a bowl of smudge burning just beneath my head and the smoke billowed down my entire body. Grandmother Spirit was the one doing everything is this particular ceremony. As I lay there covered in this white powder, she prayed and used a large bunch of leaves to move the smudge smoke over my body. She would use a sweeping motion from head to toe as she chanted her prayers. She then took a large pail of ceremonial water (this is water that has been brewing with herbs for a certain amount of time) and started pouring it over me, starting at my head and going down my body. The water washed away the white powder which she called “the ghost of my past”. She washed away all of the powder and then rubbed me down with an herbal salve that she told me was for protection. Another Grandmother Spirit worked on my feet as the other continued with the herbal salve. The Grandmother working on my feet, looks up and tells me that what she is doing is for a good journey ahead, preparing me for what’s to come. Once the two of them are done they started working on a special breast plate for me. They told me that I needed a little extra protection for my heart. It had been weakened too much in the past year and needed guarding more than usual. So they crafted this special breast plate and slipped it over me and continued with their chants and prayers. I looked down and watched as the breast plate faded away and asked what happened. They smiled at me and said it is still there, not to worry. The two of them then continued on with the sweeping motion, brushing the smudge smoke over my body until I fell into a deep sleep.
I woke up feeling fresh and renewed, looking forward to the journey ahead.
I am thankful for such an honored vision and the gift of ceremony preparing me for my new journey.
Thank you always to the Grandmothers who watch over me.
Many Blessings for safe journeys ahead,
I have always been one of those “fix it” kind of people. Always nursing others back to health. Fixing whatever problems they have, the one giving the pat on the back, the “atta boy”, the one to provide love, care and companionship. The one who kisses all the booboos and makes them go away, gets rid of the monsters and makes sure everyone is okay. Many times over I have changed my ways to adapt and make life easier for someone else. The problem is I was the one making changes and adapting while everyone else remained as they were. A whole lot of give coming from one direction only. Life needs balance. Your work life, your family life, your creative life, your love life…. all parts of your life need some sort of balance. This is something I’ve always sought after but never really found. I’m not placing any blame on anyone other than myself. I’ve made bad decisions and I have enabled over and over again. All with good intentions but still the only blame here is on me.
2014 was one of the worst years of my life so far and I have found myself having to do some deep thinking about how I want the rest of my life to go. Sooooooooo, 2015 is my year to be ME! This is the year I work on fixing me and not others. I will find my own balance, I will enjoy life as it comes and not stress over every little thing coming my way. I will conquer my fears and face life with a whole new vision.
I’m going to keep this topic going to let you all know how I’m doing throughout the year. We’ll see what obstacles come up and how I manage my way around them, we’ll explore new places and learn all kinds of new things, well go on adventures, explore the unexplored and create magic wherever we go! When you see “2015 – Year of the Raven” in the subject line …. you’ll know what it’s about. If you don’t care to know how it’s going.. just skip those posts.
Farewell 2014 … and Hello New Year!
This New Year is MINE! Mine all MINE!
Grab a year and make it yours!
Today is the New Moon and the End of the Month… So now we bid farewell to February and welcome in March with a new moon cycle. It is time to start those projects you’ve been wanting to get done, try new things, new techniques and possibly even new ways of thinking.
Now is a good time to do an overlook of your life and get rid of anything that doesn’t belong. Start thinking about where you want the rest of the year to go and start doing the things to get you there. Keep positive thoughts and a positive outlook as you move forward and use the energy of this New Moon to help boost you to the new beginnings that you want/need in your life.
We are smack dab in the middle of winter and outside look bleak while the Earth continues to rest for the remainder of winter. It won’t be long and she will awake with much to do. Flowers to grow, trees to bud, animals to birth and life to nourish.
Today is one of those crazy Tennessee days where it’s nearly 60 degrees, mid-January…. I have stepped outside with my camera several times in hope to click something spectacular but I’ve not found much at all to focus on.
As I stepped outside and was leaning against the railing I spotted this little downy feather in one of the shrubs, it was waving back and fourth with the breeze. It is a reminder that although today might not bring me the things I hoped…. there is still that… HOPE. I smiled at the little feather, so small and delicate there waving at me. So tiny and yes it still got my attention and I am thankful for the reminder that there is always more to come. More to look forward to and more to live for.
I made my way back around to the other side of the building, about to step back inside to get back to work when I noticed this bird nest in a little tree up on the hill. I stepped up to take a couple of shots and again smiled at the thought that in a few shorts month this nest might be home to a new family, creating new life. I’ll definitely keep my eyes on this one and with any luck we’ll all get to witness the miracle of life in the Spring.
So much to look forward to.
Don’t waste your time energy thinking about the things you don’t have… instead shift your focus on what’s to come, life will be so much more fun and enjoyable with that new perspective.
Have you walked barefoot in the green grass?
Slip off your shoes and feel the coolness of the grass below your feet… feel life growing right there beneath you and all around you.
Take in the fresh spring air.
Sit quietly in the presence of new birth. The Earth is waking up from winter’s nap and life is growing all around you.. have you stopped, if only for a moment to take it in?
It’s good for the mind, body and soul to take a break from the busy and chaotic day to day life we all live..
Take some time to slow your pace and take in the beauty that surrounds us … Spring is a magical time of year when all life begins anew.
Sleeping buds awaken to the warm spring air .. Nests and dens are filled with new life and the Earth is painted in new shades of color.
Take some time today to connect.
