IN the NOW

Today I am alone and comfortable with the quiet. I clean and pick up my house, wrap a few presents and make myself another coffee. The mug is warm and the contents enticing. I grab my mug and head to the window. It is a dark grey day in the North. A slight dusting of snow fills the forest floor and mountainside’s. Peace and quiet over come me and I am one with myself and the world.

Suddenly, I notice ducks popping their heads up from under the lake and this surprises me. I think I have some bread to share with them. I grab three pieces, don my boots and head outside. It is mild with no breeze, another welcomed surprise. Teetering at the water’s edge, I rip shreds of bread and throw them at the ducks. They swim away in fear and I laugh.

How many times have others tried to help us and we mis understood their actions or walked away really not knowing how to accept a favor or kindness itself? Think about this today as I send you love & light and all the bread you need.

Autumn is falling

It is not by chance that leaves turn into the most vibrant colours at this time of year. It is not by chance they ride the currents of a breeze when pulled from branch and rest upon the ground they grew from. It is the beginning and ending of a cycle. If we are in tune with nature we will catch the flow. I have noticed there are those who go before others. Those who leaves change into the most beautiful reflections of the fall flowers and evening sunsets. Leaves that turn burgundy, orange or yellow on the coolest of nights, provide the path for other trees to follow. They too are the ones whose branches become bare after the first fall rains and the winds that settle in. Falling is the flow from lively life to the silence of death. It is only by faith that spring will bring resurrection and rebirth. As this fall approaches and ends with a winter blast, I ask that you stop and catch the beauty. Whether from a walk, hike or car ride, take it in. Remember the colours, the coolness, the stillness. Breathe deeply with a grateful heart and fill your lungs with the life force that is yours. Breathe in the energy of life, clearing the struggles and let go of anything that no longer serves you. You are in transition. The world is in transition. We are all apart of this world! Falling into the flow of autumn is recognizing the consciousness of nature and connecting it with yours.

In Wholeness, Unity & Love,

What’s in your “NOW” moment?

Hola Happy traveler’s

For those of you that know me, I am a big proponent of “ positive thoughts = a positive mind = a positive life”. In fact I have this on the wall in my office, reminding me that what I think directly affects my life!

As I awaken in this life journey I find myself resonating in higher frequencies of joy and bliss. I seek them wherever I am. I desire them because they affect me physically, mentally, and emotionally.

I had the opportunity to experience joy and bliss this winter as I vacationed for a month in Melaque Mexico. It was a vacation that connected me to the heart of the Mexican people who resided in this village. They are a hard working, family oriented culture that live by a set of values that included gratitude & joy. Even though they are poor compared to our Canadian standards, they are committed to their ancestral Mayan ties to community and human survival.

The countryside is tough, firm and fertile, pushing up fruits and vegetables as gems from beneath their ancient soil. The mountains surrounding the village are tall pillars protecting them from wayward winds. They beckoned me to climb them often as a morning ritual of sacred surrender, offering magnificent views as I sat in meditation, with a grateful heart! The beautiful mountains opened up a portal within me that enabled me to write many grateful poems that month!

Oh and did I mention the sky? A perfect pallet of blues! No clouds, no floating forms of mass grey domes! No Chem trails polluting and marking an X where the next big storm will appear! Just pure unadulterated sexy pale blue. After my 1 hour of mountain hiking I would then walk the endless beach, wrapping the sexy sky around my bodacious body as I felt the days warmth enveloping me!

The waves of the Pacific Ocean mesmerized me! I enjoyed sitting at “Garcia’s beach pub” drinking beer & margarita’s wondering how to bring all of this home!

I felt joy & bliss daily in Mexico and I allowed myself to receive the many blessings that come when you open up your mind to allow & receive love in all forms. I fell in love with a culture, a mountain range, an ocean, and I felt the bliss from the earth as the wind, warmth and beauty spoke to me!

These valiant vibes came home with me. They are now a part of my life that desires a higher standard of living! They come forth on days where I cannot find the sun amongst the dark grey sky, feel the love of my community, or when I feel alone at home by myself! These valiant vibes come forth to remind me to think about them, desire them and allow them to spring up into my now moment. They remind me that “ positive thoughts = a positive mind = a positive life”
