Garden Update: Misty Morn, Faery Godmother, Cat Familiar, and Osage Orange

I’ve been in hermit mode here — doing intuitive sessions, taking walks, exercising, cooking myself on the BioMat and completing an astonishing breadth and depth of studies before I shift my focus to fiction writing on November 1. With Samhain on October 31st traditionally celebrated as the Celtic New Year, it somehow feels appropriate to return to fiction after what became an 8-year hiatus. Synchronously, it’s also the start of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), which I might do again this year — not to finish a novel in that time, but to tap into the collective discipline of word counts and new writing habits.

Today’s misty morning captures my overall mood the past couple months:

The Earth, the Air, the Fire, the Water

A mantra for the Elements of Mother Earth:

Text: The Earth, the Air, the Fire, the Water return, return, return

Ein Mantra für die Elemente von Mutter Erde.

Gayatri Mantra

Another one of my favorites from way back — a good reminder and focus for eclipse day, or any day. The Gayatri Mantra is one of the most powerful and positive reality shifters I’ve come across besides Reiki Healing Attunements.

 

Timothy Glenn ~ Heads Up, Keep Your Head Down

Many people privately have inquired what David and I are doing for the eclipse. Are we traveling to see it? Will we be doing something special? The simple answer is no, not really. We’re nowhere near the path of the eclipse, and David needs to work.

The longer, more accurate answer is that even if we were near the path of the eclipse and David had loads of vacation time left after our move, we still wouldn’t be traveling to watch the eclipse. It’s a potent portal, yes, and because it’s so potent, I intend to utilize those energies in the strongest, most focused way possible. For me, that doesn’t mean gathering in large crowds of uncertain, chaotic energy. It means spending time in nature  on that day and then during the actual eclipse window, going inside and doing a Reiki Healing Attunement for David and me, plus Reiki support for those who signed up for the August Special.

Timothy Glenn’s post today echoes this kind of quiet, indoor contemplation during the eclipse. He cites ancient Vedic texts, and I find it interesting, yet not surprising that these align with Native American Wisdom, as well. Yesterday, Continue reading

Thich Nhat Hanh ~ The Great Bell Chant

Also an excellent time for this:

Shanti Mantra

It’s so much fun seeing what things show up in which location. I used to chant this mantra and the others on Manorama’s “Awaken Fire” CD all the time, especially in 2007. It caught my eye this morning, and I forgot how much I love this version of a peace invocation:

Timeline Splits and the August Eclipse Gateway: Sandra Walter

A few people have asked me about the August 2017 Eclipse, so I wanted to share this Sandra Walter video (below). This complex video might make more sense to people who’ve had Timeline Tune-in and Tune-ups with me. If this (or any post, for that matter) is not for you, then please don’t worry about it. I have a wide variety of blog readers, and I know this will be important information to some of you, even if it sounds boring or crazy to others. 🙂

Sandra shares a lot of the collective timeline information that I sense, as well. I particularly appreciate her discussion of “bifurcation” as “choice” rather than “good” or “bad.”  I reallllllly appreciate her discussion of Earth gridding Continue reading
