Did You See The Solar Eclipse Today?

A Ring of Fire Solar Eclipse happened today. Did you witness it? There are tons of photos all over the internet from people who captured this beautiful moment. The Solar Eclipse happened because the moon passed between the Sun and the Earth. Please let me know if you’re one of them as I’d love to hear about your experience! Unfortunately, due to cloud cover, I was unable to see it myself.

The Spiritual Meaning of today’s eclipse following the May 26th Lunar Eclipse has an emphasis on renewal, moving forward and starting fresh which, for many of us, is welcomed especially after all we went through in 2020. In other words, this annular Solar Eclipse could spark an awakening in all of us.

I find it fascinating that over the last few weeks I have been hearing from people in my life with whom I lost touch. In fact, there are those who often check in to my blog, even though we no longer speak, and I often wonder why – Curiosity? Sleuthing? Missing our friendship? I may never know the truth, but I want them to know that I am doing well and yes, I have known all along of their presence here.

I believe an awakening and the subsequent uncovering of truths is perfectly timed. As with an awakening comes the revelation of truths hidden for a long time. One can no longer hide behind falsehoods, nor versions of the truth. Empowerment increases when one chooses peace of mind and forgiveness.

Living in the present moment, loving what is and being grateful for the myriad of blessings we have is the key to happiness. Simple pleasures add up to an incredible life. When one sees beyond the static of superficiality, it is God’s grace that grows. Peace within allows us to sleep well. Holding sacred our loving relationships in this world is of utmost importance. Loving people, not things is a life lesson that awakens our ability to find peace during strife. Gratitude is a key component in finding inner peace. Unconditional love and acceptance grow in an awakened state. When we look back on these life lessons we will find that when we choose to live and let live, we grow our inner peace and radiate our heartlights at a higher frequency. We bond with others who are like-minded as the past drifts into nothingness.

Gratitude for the present moment and the blessings, big and small, which accompany it raises our life force and frequency levels. The hushed tones of the past no longer register in higher frequencies. We have moved forward in our journey with a continued loving heartlight and we now help others to shine again as well. That is our life purpose. We do not suffer in order t remain in a locked pattern of dismay. Rather, we choose to take these life lessons and help others along the way. We journey together and we are all connected. It is my understanding that there are those of us who are delivered hard lessons and are given the choices and resources to overcome such hardships in order to light the way for those who are in similar situations. When we remain open to help, angels appear to help us so that in turn we can help the next person. It is that ring of helping others along the ladder of life that grows exponentially when we choose to help and not hinder each person’s journey.

I am sending you all healing hugs today and always as we continue to shine our heartlights to help others to find their way. I am grateful to all of you who read my blog and I wish all of you joy and peace wherever you are on your life’s journey. Life is short my friends. Live with a renewal of love in your hearts and gratitude for The Presents of Presence daily.

Shine On!

Full Moon In Scorpio

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!

You can see the house lights in the distance and the herd of deer!

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!

Shine On!

August 1st Rabbit Rabbit

The Presents of Presence-8

Happy August to all!   Continuing the tradition, please remember to welcome this month with Rabbit Rabbit, White Rabbit, White Rabbit!

I want to thank you for all of your love and kindness in response to my Mom’s passing.  We are still transitioning into the reality that our Mom is no longer here on Earth. However, I do know in my heart that her presence will stay with me as we were so connected and that is a bond of unconditional love that continues.  I am truly grateful for all of the blessings that have been bestowed on me by her love and the love that she had for everyone.

As the new month of August unfolds, I ask that you hold your loved ones close.  Speak with kindness and give from your generous hearts.  Receive the kindnesses that come to you with gratitude.  Pass along your smiles to all.  Spread love, patience and generosity of spirit.  Our world needs healing and healing begins with us.

I am sorry I have not been writing often, nor reading your posts.  Please know I have missed you all and hold you dearly in my heart.  God Bless.

Shine On!

On A Quiet Sunday Morning

The presents of presence

It’s sunny today which automatically puts a smile on my face these days.  Although with the news being as it is, the sunny positivity amidst the unrest lately makes staying home even easier for me during the quarantine.  While I’m not one to ostrich myself and put my head in the sand instead of being aware of what’s going on, I find the negative forces overwhelming.  Are you feeling similarly?

I find that shining our heartlights is even more important these days.  Connecting with people who raise our loving vibrations is necessary to stay afloat during these uncertain times.  Reaching out helps each of us to continue to grow compassion, understanding and the light which is so needed in our world these days.

I am saddened by the news more often than not, since it seems that we are being divided in so many ways, instead of coming together as a world full of love.  Stress, fear and negativity spike often and it leaves me feeling drained more often than not, which is why I haven’t been posting as often.

I am grateful for the peace within me that radiates as the warm breeze flows outside my home.  Nature has been calling and Gaia’s love has helped to center me when trouble comes.  I’ve had many encounters lately with all different animals who share this parcel of land with me.  The three groundhogs, Clover the bunny, the hawks and birds, the heron who flies by occasionally and the chipmunks who race across the outdoor patio have brought much joy to my days with their antics.  Unfortunately, my camera is not as quick as they are, otherwise I’d share my experiences with you.  Then there are the deer and the nighttime bats who appear at dusk.  Do you ever take the time to notice all the creatures around you?

I hope my post finds you all healthy and happy and safe from the virus that is plaguing our planet.  I pray for health and peace for all of us.  I keep you all in my prayers.  Keep shining your heartlights as we need each other!

Shine On!

Surviving Tilt-A-World

survivingtiltaworld

Have you been feeling it still?  That sense that everything is coming to peace by being cleared out?  For me, I feel like I’m riding turbulent waves with only a small life ring to keep me from drowning.  I have been talking with others who are feeling it as well.  Are you too?

It’s been going on for awhile now.  I wrote about it here at the end of August.  Some of what we’re experiencing with no rhyme or reason as to why are:

Turbulence in relationships

Malfunctioning/breaking of all types of items (locks included)

Miscommunications

Unexplained health problems

Insomnia

Exhaustion of body, mind and soul

Lack of feeling centered

Losses

Bad behaviors

Atmospheric/Climate abnormalities

Appliances, Computers, Electricity problems

Etc., Etc., Etc.

It’s a time for clearing out the old muck to begin again in a new way.  It’s a rearranging and re-balancing of the old stuck ways of thinking and being which causes this upheaval.  Whatever we haven’t dealt with in the past is now center-staging itself in plain sight in order to be dealt with once and for all, even if it’s not what we want to do at this time.

It’s been difficult for most of us.  It’s a matter of staying on course and allowing the flow of energy to take us where we need to heal.  Navigating the hills and valleys as we clear and heal isn’t for the faint of heart.  Staying centered and balanced feels like an arduous task, but we just have to keep on trying to recenter after each crisis.  Staying authentically true to ourselves, opening up those raw wounds to heal them and to forgive takes great effort.  Sleep is kindness to ourselves as it restores our depleting energies as we traverse this difficult time.

We can’t charge through this time quickly.  We can only take baby steps as each clearing comes which means that there’s no way to make it go any faster.  Hold on.  Go with the flow.  Be patient with yourself and others.  Don’t try to force things to work, but instead surrender to the healing.  I truly believe all will re-balance itself, maybe not in the short time we want it to, but yes, in time.  All in good time.

Hold on dear friends.  Breathe in.  Breathe out.  Rest.  Meditate.  Surrender and Grow.  Balance the yin and yang as best you can.  Hold onto trusted friends.  Count your blessings.  We are here for you!  Keep shining your heartlights!  We need more light!

Shine On!

Are You Experiencing Energetic Madness?

areyouexperiencingenergeticmadness

Lately with the full moon, the planetary alignments, the climatic changes and atmospheric push/pulls, it seems as if the world is on tilt.  Do you remember playing pinball machines when TILT came on?  Well, that’s how some highly sensitive souls are feeling right now.  Are you one of them too?

It seems very chaotic lately in personal relationships as well as financial and business.  What I’m finding is machinery isn’t working or is very wonky which is frustrating.  There are long wait times and phone calls are being dropped for no apparent reason.  Not to mention people seem to be angrier than usual with their frustration levels peaking over little inconveniences that normally would only elicit a quiet sigh.  Has the world gone on full tilt?

So much agony, frustration and abnormal behavior seem to be clogging up the healthy flow in our world.  Patience, kindness and compassion seem to be misplaced for the moment.

So what can we do?

Support one another.  Be the kindness and compassion as we wait patiently (or maybe impatiently) for the return to calm.  Don’t allow the energetic chaos to deter you from staying centered in peace and healthy love.  Take good care of yourselves as we navigate these stormy seas.  Pray, meditate and balance yourself.  Shine your heartlights as beacons of hope for those who are feeling lost and abandoned.  Be grateful for the little things, even when the big things seem to be in upheaval.

It’s just a phase of change which will return to balance soon.  Keep treading water as we navigate these stormy energetic seas.  Go with the flow – for what you resist persists.  Perhaps it is a time of global learning and with time, we will reunite and reassemble how we are meant to be with peace, love, compassion and kindness leading the way.  At least that’s my hope.

Is it just me or are you feeling similarly?

Shine On!

It’s So Hot Even The Wildlife Are Weary

itssohoteventhewildlifeareweary

We are having extremely hot temperatures here for the past few days.  My air conditioners at the house are suffering as they never get a chance to rest and it’s still 80 degrees in here.  But it’s better than the heat outside, so I’m not complaining.

Yesterday, I looked outside and saw this little guy on my patio.  At first, he wasn’t moving and I was concerned that perhaps he was dead, but once he heard my voice, he picked his little head up and when he saw me, off he scampered back into this little burrow under the shed.

Today, he was in the same position and I can’t help but wonder if it wouldn’t be cooler in his home under the ground?  Or perhaps he just felt like being outside in the shade?

He’s little and there’s a much larger version of him as well.  They bolt noisily across the patio when they hear me coming.  But I think it was so hot that he was weary from the heat so he didn’t notice me until he heard my voice talking to him.

I’m thinking he’s a groundhog or a woodchuck.  I researched and found out he’s a marmot (which is the collective word for groundhogs and woodchucks).  He can stand up on his hind legs and look around.  I tried to get a photo of that because it reminded me of those prairie dogs, but he noticed me and ran away.  Such is my luck…but I’ll keep trying!

I looked up groundhog and here’s part of the spiritual message:

Take time out today for meditation and self reflection. Use Groundhog energy to go deeper and to dig out what is unseen within you.
-Groundhog

 

Here is another version as well!  Click here for marmot symbolism!

I’ve named him Digger.  But I need a name for his larger friend.  Do you have you any ideas?  If you get a spiritual animal message from him to me, please share!

Stay Cool and Shine On!

July First – Rabbit Rabbit!

julyfirstrabbitrabbit

Today is Rabbit Rabbit, White Rabbit White Rabbit!  I hope your month ahead is fulfilling  and where an abundance of peace, love, health, joy and connections abound!  Choose to shine your heartlights and continue to raise the vibrations in our world.  We need to unite in kindness!

This bunny lives at my house.  I’ve named him Clover as he loves to eat the clover in my yard which is abundant as you can see in the photo!  He’s not even afraid of me anymore since we’ve had some lovely quiet time together.  I guess I’m feeling like the Rabbit Whisperer!

Shine On!

Little Bird Laid To Rest

littlebirdlaidtorest

The bumble bee encounter had me buzzing with life’s renewal and the lightness of being that seems to surround me when that smell of spring is in the air.  But yesterday afternoon, when I returned home, I came across a little bird in the driveway.  I have always said that the animal kingdom brings me messages and this one is no exception.  Except I am not quite sure the meaning.

He looks peaceful so I can’t determine how or why the tiny bird is deceased.  (So, yes, I’ve arbitrarily decided it’s a he).  There are no signs of an abrupt attack.  Why he is in the driveway and not on the adjacent grass is curious to me as well.  Even though I did take a photo of him, it seemed too sad for me to post, so I chose another photo of a similarly looking bird today.

For me, he is a reminder that with life comes death and all that encompasses the in-between.  We learn these lessons as we grow and explore the meaning of our lives.  So many times we take for granted what is and forget that life is precious – to be enjoyed, to be shared with love and to be cognizant of that delicate balance between the past, the present and the unknown future.

I also feel that spiritually for me, it signifies the end and the preparation of a new beginning for the next chapter in my life.  Do you feel that way too?

I am not even sure what type of little bird he is – perhaps a sparrow?  I said a small prayer for him, gave thanks for his presence and interred him in the backyard by myself.  I wonder if he has any loved ones who worried when he didn’t return to the nest last night?  Is there a mama or partner bird who is mourning the loss of her love?

Be sweet today.  A gentle reminder to hug and love on those for whom you care so deeply.  We only have today, so take the gift of The Presents of Presence, not for granted, but with the deep understanding that resides in your heartlight.

Shine On!

Bumble Bee Encounter

Bumble Bee

Precious First Bumble Bee

It’s the end of April and spring has arrived, finally!  As I sat outside today, in the pale morning sun, two chubby bumble bees buzzed in the lawn nearby, seeming to enjoy the nectar in the grass.

While I wasn’t able to get a shot of both of them together, here is one of them.  What I loved was that as they went about their business, I was reminded of how inspirational they truly are.  At least I think so, because aerodynamically, there aren’t equipped to fly and yet, they do!  I love how they stop and smell the roses (quite literally and yes, silly pun intended) and yet, they also are very productive.

Quite literally, a perfect combination of work and play and isn’t that what life’s all about?

Of course, if you’ve been reading here for any length of time, you know how much I love the animals that I encounter.  I always feel as if they’ve stopped by to send me a special message.  I looked up bumble bee spirit animal message and smiled.

Here’s the lovely message that spoke to me!

What a perfect way to begin the Spring, don’t you think?

Doesn’t it get your heartlight revving?

Shine On!
