I see the moon and the moon sees me. God bless the moon and God bless me.
This morning we awoke to cooler temperatures which were perfect for me. No humidity in the air and just the sensation that all was right in the world. How lovely! So, I took a break from cleaning my house to sit outside on my rocking chair to just relax and watch the world go by. Of course, you know me, I had to look up to the sky because I always find skywatching to be a peacefilled endeavor.
10:54 am Can you see the 1/2 moon? The airplane?
What do you see in the clouds? I see angels with trumpets! How about you?
Do you ever take a moment to look up at the sky? Who would have thought that at almost 11am the moon would still be visible in the sky? Isn’t it a lovely sight? I hope you are all having a lovely Saturday start to your weekend! Keep shining your heartlights and remember to look up!
Thunderbolts and Lightning! When I hear those words together, they make me think of that song by Queen called Bohemian Rhapsody. Do you know it as well? Did those words together make you think of it too?
Well, last night we had a wicked storm here and as I watched the storm roll in, the lightning flash and heard the thunder roar, I thought of how good storms can be to clear out what isn’t working and to electrify the atmosphere so that change can take place.
I used to be afraid of storms, but I’ve changed the way I look at them. While I am careful with lightning and such, I find storms more fascinating now that my mindset has developed and changed.
Because storms change life up. Sometimes it isn’t in a good way, but in the end, we learn and grow from storms. For if we didn’t have storms, we wouldn’t learn from life’s lessons. We wouldn’t increase our understanding of human behavior. We wouldn’t develop our innate talents. We wouldn’t find our community that supports us. Without storms shaking us up, we would stay stagnant
So let’s cheer to the storms – To the lightning that shines in the darkness where we may fear to tread. To the thunder that rolls in with strength. To the rains that blanket the earth with much needed water to help growth.
Did you have storms where you are? Are you a storm watcher as I am?
I happened to look up. I wasn’t searching for a sign, but isn’t that just God-like and just like the Universe to let me know that feeling heart-centered is perfectly right in this present moment? I have always been a skywatcher. I love nature and sip my coffee outside often in the mornings to commune with Mother Nature. The wildlife here don’t disappoint with their silly antics, nor the birds with their visits and beautiful songs.
Cloud watching is an art form and I remember being a child and looking up at the clouds and letting my imagination take over. I could conjure up visions of clouds in the shapes of mountains, smiley faces and even dragons at times. But my delight in seeing a cloud in the sky, shaped like a heart was contagious!
It happened last evening and if you look closely, you can see the stars in the sky twinkling. The flash on the iPhone camera is why the photo seems as if it’s daylight, but it’s not. I was talking with a friend when suddenly I looked up and there the heart was right in front of me! I quickly took the photo and within minutes the heart cloud had faded away. Was it a sign from Heaven?
Being present is so important, don’t you think? Big grin. You know I believe in The Presents of Presence! For if I had waited even a few minutes, the heart-shaped cloud would have been gone and I would have missed my opportunity to remember that moment of the awe-inspiring beauty that nature delivers! Indeed, I wouldn’t have been able to share it with you today!
Capturing that moment still makes my own heart sing with delight! Because even the sky shares its heartlight with us when we take a moment to be fully present!
PS What else do you see in the photo? What do you think the cloud shape is to the left of the heart?
My sweet neighbors always remember me when their peonies bloom. It is a Springtime tradition that began long ago and continued even after I moved away and one that I am so grateful for each and every year.
There is nothing like a clear beautiful vase filled with the sweetest smell of freshly cut peonies in a home, especially ones that are delivered with kindness. My house has been so aromatic for the last week that I couldn’t help but to grin broadly each and every morning as I brewed my first cup of coffee for the peonies greeted me on the kitchen island!
I don’t often get fresh cut flowers anymore unless I buy them, but even then, sometimes they aren’t as fragrant as ones from a friend’s backyard. These were truly spectacular and I wish we had a smellavision on the blog so you could have enjoyed them too!
I was talking with a friend recently and the phrase, ‘kindness doesn’t cost anything’ was part of our conversation. How true is that! I always feel strongly about kindness. Don’t you?
Anyway, being that it’s June first and it seems my bunny has found greener pastures, I just wanted to send you a little blog post to let you know I am thinking of all of you and hoping you’re doing well!
You know as a gentle reminder, I can’t help myself and say, Rabbit Rabbit!
I am very excited to share that I finally had a sighting of Mr. Groundhog (aka Fatty)! I haven’t seen him in months and was worried that the other more active wildlife here had perhaps taken off with him. But much to my surprise, he popped up into my yard and I was able to greet him with a happy smile.
Now I know many people may not be as enthusiastic as I am when a groundhog who has a large labyrinth underground has made it through hibernation only to pop back up, but I am! A few days ago after the farmer across the street had tilled the field, I watched a few groundhogs scampering across the street in the recently turned soil and hoped that perhaps one of them was mine.
Fatty is looking pretty lean so I hope that his munching on the dandelions (of which I have a ton in the yard right now) will fatten him up again happily after his long winter’s nap. Now I just have to wait and see if Mrs. Fatty returns as well!
Of course, you know I am anxiously awaiting a sighting of my darling bunnies. So far, I haven’t seen them, but I am keeping a watchful eye out!
There are many issues that come to the surface with this Super Moon in Scorpio. Have you been feeling them? What used to work for us, the old ways and reactions, no longer seem to work anymore. A huge part of the healing process that we are working on has to do with forgiveness as well as the need to remain as non-judgmental as possible. For some this is easier than for others. But it is a very necessary part of the healing process.
Because we are all powerful manifestors and creators, we must let go of illusions and recognize how empowered we are! What does that mean for you? It means quieting the mind and allowing limiting beliefs to fall away. It is allowing feelings that may have been suppressed in the past to come to the surface to be cleared away once and for all. It is to see with more of an observational knowing that we are all here just doing our best with what we know.
May those who have fallen away from your life be released with gratitude for what we have learned through the life lessons shared with them. Every relationship serves its purpose to allow us to grow, to strengthen and to move beyond the limits that we were given. There are no mistakes. There are no regrets. There is just what happened and how we all moved on to heal from that time.
We are all empowered with healing energy, with a knowing of the truth once we allow ourselves to feel the emotions that we may have been suppressing and to release the past as we ready for the future light that is here now. It is the movement from 3D to 5D that we’re experiencing in case you’re wondering what is going on. We’ve been on this path for awhile now as it unfolds.
I hope you were able to see the full moon last night. I went out to take the photo above and then noticed the herd in the field. Below is the shot of them and as you can tell, that full moon lit up the ground below in a spectacular way!
I hope you are all doing well. I am sorry I have not been very active lately, but I am still here. Sending you all love and shining my heartlight to yours!
March always reminds me of daffodils because they grew in the backyard of my childhood home. Being a March baby, I clearly remember my Mom cutting the daffodils and placing them in a vase on our kitchen table every year around my birthday. To me, daffodils are that joyful expression that Spring is coming (as is my birthday)!
There is something cheerful about seeing the daffodils and smelling the earth starting to come alive in Springtime. I bought myself a handful of daffodils yesterday at the store. As I arranged them in a small vase that was my Mom’s, I was smiling. It’s the little things, those precious moments that I treasure. Don’t you?
It’s been getting warmer here in Jersey and the birds are chatting away more than usual. Perhaps it’s not more than usual, but simply that it’s been so quiet throughout the Winter months. It’s good to hear them prattling away and calling to each other. I have been watching them eat from the suet bird feeders I got this Winter. They are so much fun to watch!
However, I saw that there is a possibility of a snow storm next week and much to everyone else’s chagrin, I’m smiling about it! I love snow as well and would welcome one last snowfall before Spring is officially here. Back in the 70’s I remember a snow storm on my birthday which I loved! Perhaps we have another one in store for 2021?
I hope that all of you are healthy and happy. I haven’t been writing as much lately, but I do think of you often. My darling rabbits and wildlife haven’t been seen in a long while. I’m not sure if they’ve moved, are hibernating or perhaps have met their demise which saddens me. I’m hoping for a resurgence in the Spring. I’ll stay in touch and let you know!
In the meantime, may you have a lovely Thursday afternoon in March wherever you are. May you take a few moments to notice The Presents of Presence in your day. Take an extra moment or two to just be, look up at the sky, notice the grass and the smell of Spring starting. Count your blessings and be grateful for your loved ones by your side. I am grateful for all of you.
The shortest day of the year aligns with the longest night on December 21st 2020. The Winter Solstice this year (if you aren’t already aware) features the first visible “double planet” in 800 years which are Jupiter and Saturn. This conjunction is also being referred to as the “Christmas Star.”
What a lovely blessing for this year that has been fraught with turmoil, disappointment, fear and sadness. We are nearing the end of 2020 with many of us heavy-hearted, tired and worn out. But innately, also with hope, love and a yearning for peace. I find the Christmas Star to be a necessary and appreciated highlight right now. Don’t you?
Are you planning on taking a walk outside to see if you can view this extraordinary gift today? Due to our time zones, perhaps some of you will not be able to see it or perhaps you already have (by the time you read this)! Either way, I’d love to hear about your experience and see your photos if you take any!
My hugs are plentiful for all of you. May you find peace in The Presents of Presence and be thankful for the amazing gifts this world presents when we need them most. I hope you are all doing well. Keep shining your heartlights!
My beautiful tree in the front yard is still holding onto her leaves. Bejeweled tones of ruby, amber and orange are so stunning in the sunlight that the above photo doesn’t do justice as to her loveliness.
I find a tranquility in communing with nature and this certainly is the perfect setting for it here out in the country. While most of the trees here have let go of their leaves, this one hasn’t yet and what a present that is to me!
How about at your homestead? Are the leaves still hanging on or have they already dropped? I think it’s late for this one to be still full of leaves, but I’m not complaining! I love it!
I hope you’re having a lovely Sunday. Keep shining your heartlights and continue to be grateful for every precious day.
Often when I pick up my phone, the time on it shows 11:11, so what better way to celebrate today’s date which coincidentally is 11/11! For today’s date is special, especially with the added year being 2020. Did you take notice of it? Do you know anything about it?
Well, I started a little research because the synchronicity of these numbers fascinate me. Below are a few articles that you may find interesting as this is a time when a fresh start and a portal to deep transformation of humanity is here.
Beyond numerology, planetary alignments and the angelic significance of the numbers, I feel a change today. An opening of spirit and when I stood outside in nature, I felt that deep connection to love and light in our world.
These were just a few interesting articles I’ve found. Please feel free to add any that you’ve seen, including your own if you’ve written. The more understanding and knowledge we have, the better for us all!
Keep shining your heartleights dear friends! Happy 11/11/2020 to you!
