Healing my Memories of Home

Continuing yesterday’s theme of regeneration, today’s post comes from my sweet, heart-full friend, Linette. She and her husband, Jason, both learned Reiki from me a couple years ago, and I’ve watched and admired how they’ve grown and transformed in such a short time. They would dearly love to become the next caregivers for Faery Hof, alongside the new family who recently moved into my former office/guesthouse/classroom, aka Haus Am See. Linette has helped me in the garden for years. She’s hauled wood mulch, planted garlic, wassailed the fruit trees with me on Twelfth Night, and she even brings crystals as offerings for the yard. Today, she and Jason helped weed an annual bed they hope they’ll soon be gardening full time.

As she explains in this vulnerable and loving post, our house and yard represent a stretch for them, a chance to rise up from poor soil and blossom into the beautiful beings they are. The yard and I chose her long ago as the next Guardian. It’s just a matter of our landlord overcoming his resistance to pets via a very large pet deposit, as well as some timing challenges. We’ve all been Reiki-ing the situation for weeks. Well, truth be told, I’ve been sending Reiki to find the next caregivers for this yard for years, as I knew we would not be here forever. I could not be more pleased with how things unfolded next door. That is not my story to tell, but it’s an amazing tale of regeneration, too.

If you feel so led, please join us in sending prayers, Reiki and intentions that Linette and Jason and Faery Hof all find their next perfect partnership for the Highest Good of All. Readers know how much love I’ve poured into this house and yard. Linette and Jason offer that same devotion. I would be honored to transition our home and yard to them in July.

UPDATE: Some generous people have offered to contribute to the pet deposit fund. Anyone who would like to do so can send a payment to Linette at: https://www.paypal.me/linettechance . Also, keep an eye on her blog, as I understand she will be offering some new services. Thanks to everyone for sending her and Jason so much love, energy and kindness!

The Astonishing Light

old brown trailer Old trailer like many of those I lived in as a child

I bet many of you lived in a place like this, and you will be able to relate to what I am about to say. My family lived in several places like this; some in trailer parks, some not. But they all shared a smell, especially in the South: cockroach spray. All the places we lived in reeked of the stuff. I can still smell it in my mind. By the time we lived in them in the mid-80s, these places had seen way better days. They often had soft floors around places where water might accumulate, like the toilet, the shower, and the kitchen and bathroom sinks.  In one trailer, we had to be careful not to stand too close to the front of the shower because the floor under it was so weak, a 90 pound…

    Dear Ones, I am so deeply moved by your story. It has brought me to tears this morning as I sip my hot soothing tea. While I had different homes as a child, my journey til this my 84th year has not always been sanctuary. I recognize deep in my soul your soul’s yearning for safe, magically beautiful haven… A feeling of being entitled to that place of security, stability and natural beauty.

    I send you my loving and deep blessings for your healing of home… your beautiful, yearning Spirit… your deserving Soul…

    Sweet Dreams and Faerie Wings… Victoria

    I wish and I pray that they get their dream realised, I see that they do, and I can feel the happiness already in place, so be it, so it is. I wish them Love, Harmony, Health, Wealth and Peace. We are all One.

    So touching, the tears came for me reading her post. She and her husband deserve this beautiful sanctuary that you have created and they’ve had a hand in supporting and loving. Such a sweet, tender desire to have outwardly what has changed and shiftedinwardly. My thoughts and Reiki are sent to the situation. Big hugs. ❤️

  23. […] Meanwhile, back on the Goshen home front, I’m pleased to report that both houses have gone to gardeners! Everyone keeps saying the faeries will miss me here, but I’m not so sure. Two little girls running around the yard in pink dresses and hats are rather pleasing to flower faeries. Also, thanks to the generosity of several generous blog readers, lots of Reiki, prayers, intentions, and some private arrangements, Linette and her husband Jason are now able to take over our house, effective July 1. Thank you so much to everyone who reached out to Linette, and especially to my sweet sister, Erica, who initiated a donation spree in order to ensure continuation of the beautiful permaculture gardens here, while also allowing Linette to realize her dream of moving to this house. (In case you missed it, you can read her story here.) […]


  24. […] no longer the caregivers of Faery Hof. We and all the Faeries and Spirits of the Land wish Linette, Jason and their animal friends a magical, loving and joyful move-in […]
