Writing Update: Even my owl knows it’s writing month

From friend, Karen, via last night’s “Your owl” email:

“Turned the page in the paper and there he was! Happy writing month to you.”

Thanks to everyone who’s sent encouragement, writing care packages and little sync winks. 😉 The characters in this paranormal historical fiction novel have already made me bust out laughing and then start sobbing a few pages later. In other words, the wild ride of novel writing has officially begun. I will continue with a full load of phone sessions this month, but no email sessions. You can also expect fewer blog posts in November, as I focus most of my writing energy on developing characters, scenes and themes.

My Taurus hubby begins full time Kalamazoo living as of this evening, so we have lots of shifts in store. Tomorrow’s Full Moon in Taurus adds particularly apt and potent energies to the mix. Wishing you and yours big opportunities, the vision to recognize them, and the courage to act.

Cheers!

Goodbye Sonoma County Redux: Synchronous Owls, NaNoWriMo, and Safe Passage

My February 2010 entry, “Goodbye Sonoma County, Goodbye California,” has haunted me for nearly eight years. David and I decided to get married in December 2016 in preparation for purchasing a house in Michigan and relocating from Goshen, Indiana. Ever since then, memories of my sudden departure from California have tumbled across consciousness at least several times per week. From needing to retrieve Sonoma County divorce records — to a two-week stint on Instagram that felt like an assault of photos from places I worked so hard to leave — to discerning and executing our own exit plan from Goshen, the late 2009-early 2010 time period in Sonoma County kept bursting through.

Although David and I met as friends in Chicago, unbeknownst to me at the time, our story actually began in Sonoma County and Napa. Synchronicities Continue reading

Compost, Critters and Fritillaria

Another update from the Wild Kingdom of Faery Gardening. This morning features hopefully my last truckload of compost and soil. I ordered a lighter blend and 1/3 less than last time, so I also hope to finish today rather than in tomorrow’s 87 degrees! We shall see. I had planned to get the delivery yesterday with its balmy high of 75 degrees; however, I had a backlog of email sessions Continue reading

Shamanic Gardening

I’m making up for very sparse blogging the past month in otherwise unusable time chunks set aside for various repairs and upgrades. Today it was five new, matching locks on three doors. Because we bought an older house, the locksmith wasn’t sure how long it would take, but now I have some extra time before I get busy again with sessions.

As the locksmith left, I felt called to plant some of the potted up strawberries into the existing groundcover in front of our porch. After watering them in, I second guessed myself, wondering if that would encourage mice too close to the house. I had in my Amazon queue another 100 gallon Big Bag Bed and some fake snakes that supposedly help to repel mice and possibly groundhogs. I put some veggie burgers in our air fryer, went outside to harvest a little lettuce, and what suddenly appeared at our threshold?!

A garter snake: “Reporting for duty.” This was similar to when a praying mantis Continue reading

Rune Soup with Mike Clelland

While catching up on other tasks, I’ve been listening to this fascinating discussion between Mike Clelland and Gordon White. Given their shared interests and the number of people Mike and Gordon know in common, many of us knew it was just a matter of time before this conversation happened, but I’m so glad it did!

I got to know Mike through a series of conversations and emails as he interviewed me for a chapter in his next book. I don’t know when that one will be released, but if he puts even a fraction of the time into each chapter as he did with mine, then Mike promises to deliver a beautifully mind blowing book. If you’ve not yet read his book, The Messengers: Owls, Synchronicity and the UFO Abductee, I highly recommend it for anyone with interest in shamanism, synchronicity, reality shifts, owls, paranormal experiences, and/or synchronicity.

Now … back to sessions and packing!

 

Loose Ends, New Year: Mercury Retrograde in January 2017

Happy 2017! I hope you’re all enjoying the shift from a “9” year of completions into a “1” year of new beginnings. It’s a little more fluid than that due to Mercury Retrograde still in effect until January 8th, and then with its decreasing shadow period for awhile afterwards. As with any external energy influence, you can align your attitude and tasks with the energies in order to create more ease and flow in your own experience. Traditional advice says, “Don’t make contracts or start anything new in a Mercury Retrograde period,” but it all depends on how you embrace or resist those influences. In my own life, I’ve continued tying up loose ends since December 19th, including “tying the Celtic Knot on Yule,” which David and I consciously chose for both the return to light aspect and for the sense of completion at this level of our spiral journey together.
