Eclipse of the Soul


Oh my, where do I begin?  It’s like the rush of energy captivated me throughout the eve of the eclipse and the day itself.  It’s hard to explain, but maybe my experience will be similar to yours and we can share and connect.  At least, that’s my plan, dear friends.

First I noticed the energy change around me.  The cats were unsettled during the daylight before the eclipse.  Both kitties went from one extreme to another – sitting quietly and watching with fascination something I couldn’t see.  Of course, at times, I thought it was that the veil might be thin at this time and we had visitors, but since the kitties don’t talk about it, I am only left to wonder and watch their reactions.  At others, meowing plaintively or hovering close to me, even grooming me as if we needed to bond.  I petted them each in turn, relaxing them by giving and receiving love.

My own body whirred, not exactly trembling physically, but I felt the whirring vibration within me ebb and flow before the eclipse.  It was a silent subtle vibration which pulled  me to go outside for a bit just to sit in the sunshine.  The sun felt warmer on my skin when I was outside as well.  Imagination perhaps, but real to me all the same.  The sun wasn’t making me sweat, it was glowing within me, warming my body, mind and soul in such a pleasant way, even though the temps read 84 degrees.  The gentle breeze caressed my skin in the most delightful of ways.

Skies pale blue with intermittent clouds which streaked across the sky.  Not the bright bulbous clouds, but as if someone had blown a dandelion full of wishes across the sky.  The spiritual reset of the eclipse stayed in my mind as I raised my vibrations and laid out my wishes, as the clouds crossed the sky above me.  By the way, there were no geese to be seen today before the eclipse.  No honking – all was quiet and peaceful.  Did the geese know what was in store today?


I used the quiet time before the eclipse to pray and to thank God and the Universe for all the blessings I have received.  I counted my blessings, one by one, which took a long time.  I quietly prayed, my heart receptive to any messages received.  I filled the skies with a release of my worries.  Blowing them away from my mind as I wished on a dandelion.


What did I wish for?

Love and peace to surround me. 

Faith and kindness to increase. 

Gentle rearrangement of souls connection,

higher vibrations and attunement to our higher purpose.


A deeper awakening seemed to rise up within me.  As I stood in the grass in my yard facing the beckoning willow tree, I felt an emotional surge from the soles of my feet, warming my body upwards until the crown of my head seemed to open and white light emerged to bond with the sun above me.  It was a remarkable feeling.  Tickling, tingling and rare as I felt enveloped in a peaceful, comforting hug from the Universe and all who dwell within.  A power of oneness, of connection and of sanctity.  I remained quietly standing for awhile.  I am not sure how long, but as I began to hear again – I realized that for a time, I only heard the whir of my heartbeat and the blood in my body and the air within my lungs.  My ears had that white noise sound that we sometimes get which usually bugs me when it happens, but this time, it was received as a loving gift of spirit.

I opened my eyes to see the world around me.  I hadn’t realized I had closed my eyes as I was so enraptured by the experience.  I must have looked silly to anyone passing by but I was never even aware of them.  I was only singularly aware of the melding of the earth, the stars, the sky, the sun, the moon, mother nature, spirit, God, the Universe and me.  And that’s a big melding to experience at once.

My breathing quickened as I felt woken from the trance-like state where I had been standing, arms open wide, palms up, melding with the Universe.  Birds chirped nearby and Clover the baby bunny hopped in the nearby grass, chewing her favorite bits of clover contentedly.  I felt the gentle breeze increase, tickling my body with a warm caress again.


I felt tired, but sated.  As if the experience had ignited in me a light and a flame of love that was deeper than I had ever experienced in my lifetime.  I felt one with everything and everyone.  One – as in truly connected – one – as in all of our experiences are shared – one – as if I completely understand your pains, your happiness and you, as well as me.


And this was all before the famed eclipse.  I wonder what will happen afterwards?  I’m going to rest right now.  Sleep beckons and I want to wake up to experience the eclipse, so I will close for now.  Sweet peace, dear ones.

Shine On!





Happy Birthday…

A Picture is Worth a 1000 Words

Are you wondering what this is a picture of?  Wondering why it is Truly Beautiful?  Can you tell it’s significance? 3 18?

I made this card from the picture of the arm of a young woman I met recently.  Her tattoo intrigued me and I asked her the significance of it.  She told me that it is the birthday of her Mom ~ March 18th ~ and that she had it tattooed on her arm because her Mom is so important to her in her life.

As you know I love to connect with others and when I saw her unusual tattoo, I was astounded that it was my birthday that she had across her forearm.  I found it so interesting that I asked if I could take a picture and post it on my blog.  Thanks KAngel!

I always enjoy listening to others and their stories…and their reasons for their tattoos.  I don’t have any of my own, but it doesn’t change the fact that if I see your interesting one, I won’t stop myself from asking you about it as I feel that if you’ve felt it’s important enough to tattoo on yourself, then it’s important enough and perhaps you’d like to share.

Which brings me to birthdays…I love my birthday!  Truly I do!  I think that it’s important to celebrate every year that you are here!  I enjoy quiet reflection for what’s happened the past year, making personal goals for the coming year and I give thanks for all that has happened in my life since my last birthday to bring me to this day.  Usually my goals are simple and as the year progresses, they evolve as circumstances pop up.  I re-evaluate my life and what I’d like to do with it ~ what I really want and how I can better serve and connect with my family, friends, loved ones and others.

One year gives you 365 days, 8,760 hours, 525,600 minutes ,and 31,536,000 seconds ~ imagine what you can accomplish with all that time on your hands?  Even minusing sleep time in a year ~ 8 hrs a night?  Still gives you 5,840 hours in which to live what you’ve been dreaming of…and what is that?  What are you dreaming of?

I am working on my goals for the coming year ~ my inner self-goals which I think are separate from the New Year’s Resolutions.  I’ve got a few I can share ~ I’d love to hold a seminar (or two!) and pursue the power point presentations that I did last year when I was dreaming of teaching what I’ve learned…I’d love to return to my beloved Spain to tap back into my fluency again…I’d love to connect with others on an even wider scale with my business and spread a skyful of sunshine with my SendOutCards ~  I have a ton of ideas, but I do not have the necessary connections…yet!

I want to inspire survivors and others who need to know that there’s a light at the end of the tunnel and that they’re not alone…I want to continue to passionately pursue being a better wife, mom, sister, daughter and friend.

Just to name a few…of course, there are many more, but they are private…

So when I blow out my candles on my birthday,

I will make my wishes…

and one of them will be that WE ALL make our wishes come true this year!
