One of my personal bridges of love light that never fails me is Mother Nature.
The infinite variety of life here on Grandmother Earth provides unlimited opportunities for joy, discovery, healing and wonder.
I can be feeling “blue,” as my mom used to call sadness, and a few minutes being with the spirit of nature brings me back to Joy.
We are made out of Love, which contains joy.
My intention for our new year of 2022 is to cultivate more Joy for myself and others.
The photo above is of a porcupine in the grass, which perfectly camouflages it. My friend once taught me that if you want to spot wildlife, hold a focus toward the horizon and look for movement. That really works. I’m always elated when I can spot a deer or even tiny critters in the wild.
The Diamond light sparkles on the water always bring me joy also.
The bottom photo is of another Joy producer for me, flowers.
For your 2022, you may want to cultivate more joy in your life. Joy helps your body be its healthiest. Joy opens up our creativity. Joy emanates from us to spread happiness to others. Joy inspires.
The following are resources that have helped me cultivate more Joy in my life:
When I was growing up in the 1950s, my mom, dad, sister and I would all sit on the couch and watch TV together. Most of the programs were G-rated, even though that was before ratings.
When we were watching and a commercial came on, I would ask my mom, “Is the show over?” I really wanted to see the end and feared I had missed it.
She often teased me about this because I asked that so often.
Now in my adult life I still have that feeling that I am going to miss the “heaven on earth” promised by the Golden Age of Aquarius. That passes quickly as I observe little things that are the beginnings of The New Earth, NOW.
This last Sunday I woke up to a moment of Heaven on Earth as I saw the sunrise and the full moonset. I don’t often get to see the sunrise here in the mountains, as there is often cloud cover or fog in the early morning. Seeing the Full moon set is also a rarity. We had what is called here “a bluebird day.” Spectacular clear blue sky with white barked aspens, which are leaf-less, giving a stark, beautiful backdrop to the Grand Tetons on the horizon.
I haven’t missed heaven on earth as it is here now in these serene moments that I get to receive into my awareness.
Thank you, Grandmother Earth and Mother Nature.
Sananda has taught me that we live in a holographic Universe. The great is in the small and the small in the great. Rumi has taught us that the one drop of water contains the whole ocean.
So, my dear readers, we can collect these moments and add them to the collective consciousness of heaven on earth until it is evident for all.
Don’t worry. Be happy. We didn’t miss it.
Be aware of the moments you are adding to the whole. My higher self often reminds me, “one grain of rice” — as a thought, happy feeling, compassion, joy, appreciation, being the love that you are — does add to the creation, no mater how small.
These small actions can tip the scale to goodness for all sentient beings living on earth.
So smile today– laugh, jump, dance or Love all the good that is here just for YOU.
Mother Teresa reminds us: do small things with great love.
You will reap the reward of feeling very good.
The videos today from Lorna Byrne demonstrate how we can help ourselves, and Mother Nature, by growing in LOVE.
The main qualities of our new time on miraculous Grandmother Earth with her daughter Mother Nature are: The Power of NOW, Working with and healing our Earth and Mother Nature, Prosperity for All Sentient beings to Flourish and Grow, Teamwork, Cooperation, Unity, Oneness, Creativity, and LOVE.
These are the main qualities, though we are not limited to these. Each are infinite in expression.
LOVE is the operative quality. The power of Love.
All of these qualities are available for all of us. When in your quiet, contemplative time, you can acknowledge and put your attention on one or all and they will be more tangible for you. Like the wind behind your back or flowing downstream.
Each of these qualities have a Reality that we can tap into.
The two YouTube videos I’ve included today show amazing people and organizations that embody these qualities and inspire and show us how we, too, can make a huge difference for the Healing of Grandmother Earth and Mother Nature.
The cleaning of the Oceans will allow the fish populations to return with sustainable fishing practices. Our clean Oceans can feed one billion people.
Jane Goodall, in the video below, inspires us at a very deep level. Her work just keeps expanding and growing. She embodies all of the qualities above as a Global teacher for The GOOD. Her last name says it all.
“Ah, but a man’s reach should exceed his grasp, Or what’s a heaven for?”
– Robert Browning
We are all in the midst of a global transformation. We are bridging heaven to earth and earth to heaven. This time period has been called “the great awakening.”
God works in mysterious ways. Who knew that part of this bridge to heaven on earth would be a mass “cocooning” of humanity?
Butterflies are such great teachers of this process. I have loved them since I was very young. My sister and I would make little homes for the caterpillars and would think that we were communicating with them. I still feel that is true. Going from walking on the ground to becoming a creature of flight takes courage. Spinning a cocoon completely around yourself and being alone, confined to a small space, in the dark, while your body is completely changing is no small feat. Your reward when you manage to break out of this casing is freedom– a beautiful creature of flight and lightness of being.
Monarch butterflies have always been my favorites. Pacific Grove, California, “Butterfly Town, USA,” has a Monarch butterfly sanctuary. My grandsons attended a school for parents and babies up to the age of three, Parents Place, which was just across the street from this sanctuary. One day while Cooper’s younger brother, Logan, was attending his class, Cooper, not quite three years old, and I walked through the sanctuary. We were right in the middle of it when we sat on a bench and observed one of the miracles of these creatures. We looked up in the trees and couldn’t really see them as they were hanging down, attached to the leaves, with their wings closed. As we sat quietly we were treated to a breathtaking spectacle. All of the sudden, hundreds of monarchs took flight right in front of us. So very beautiful. Cooper was wide-eyed along with me.
Monarchs are one of the strongest of butterflies as they migrate thousands of miles, even crossing oceans, landing on twigs or little pieces of seaweed to rest. Their life cycle is amazing, as is ours. Humanity is transforming as we speak. We have the opportunity, now, to transmute old beliefs into the new qualities of the Golden Age we have just entered.
While we are cocooning, sheltering in place, maybe meditating for the first time, being more than doing and resting, new thoughts and beliefs can emerge. These activities make new ways of a better, freer, life more possible. Love, cooperation, unity, oneness, freedom, creativity and loving Mother Nature are some of the qualities we can take advantage of in our new world. These spiritual qualities are present for us now.
There is one very important aspect, though, that we need to remember. Just as the butterflies can only fly if they break through the cocoon (chrysalis) on their own, we are like that. Sananda told me many years ago, “The changes on earth will be grassroots; individuals, families and communities.” We can enter this new world gracefully by aligning with these qualities ourselves within our own unique beingness. We are all needed– especially LOVE of ourselves, family, friends and our Grandmother Earth, Mother Nature.
Each animal, insect, plant and tree carry unique spiritual qualities that are here to help us. Butterflies carry the qualities of transmutation, transformation, courage, beauty and freedom, to name a few. Their service is as pollinators. So, this spring, why not plant flowers and herbs that will attract and help our fellow beings of the light. For Monarchs: milkweed, chives and Siberian wallflower.
Last week’s blog focused on manifesting with the Spirit of Nature. This practice is enlivening and enriching as we are Nature. Not just in our physical body but in our emotions and feelings also.
Not only were we all born with patterns and beliefs to transform and transmute to a higher frequency, such as the scarcity belief, we also agreed to help specific parts of nature and the elementals. I agreed to help the waters, oceans, rivers, streams and the element of water. Water is the frequency of Love in the elemental realms. Also I said I would help the trees, particularly the Oaks and Redwoods. I highly recommend this inspirational card deck by Jane Struthers: The Wisdom of Trees Oracle: Inspirational Cards for Wisdom and Guidance. It not only gives physical knowledge of 73 trees but also inspiration from their devas– also the uses of their leaves, bark, fruits and roots.
Trees are known as “the standing people” by many indigenous cultures. I feel that way about them. They are our great helpers, taking us to the higher realms on Earth. I invite you to be with trees as people, and you may be very surprised when they start talking to you. Trees have helped me open to my intuition and have healed and inspired me.
Today, listen to your inner being and ask which part of Mother Nature and Grandmother Earth you volunteered to assist at this time of the greatest transformation we have ever known. Humanity, the animal kingdoms, the fairy realms, the elementals all rising together in oneness and love.
We work on our goals and our goals work on us. Anything you contribute to nature will return to you in a surprise of goodness. Last week a mourning dove, a universal (and my personal) symbol of Love and Peace, flew right in front of my face and dropped one of its feathers at my feet. That small gift gave me such an uplift in my day as I have learned that feathers are signs of answered prayers.
The infinite variety in nature will give you experiences of beauty, connectedness, inspiration and love for many lifetimes.
The photo above is of a bouquet I won at our local nursery’s party to celebrate the coming holidays. The store had a “wheel of fortune,” and my turn stopped on a free bouquet. I invite you to be in nature in your awareness as a little child and you may receive a gift. Fairies and nature spirits love to surprise and delight. You may even hear their songs.
Earth Day is coming up and is the day after Easter this year.A lot to celebrate of the goodness of spring and renewal.I would like to invite you to create an Earth Celebration either for yourself, or family and friends, or to join one of the many group Mother Gaia parties.Gaia is a living Being who also goes by these names: Patcha Mama, Sophia and Virgo.I find when I am loving Mother Nature and calling her by name I’m inspired to give back to her for all she has given me.
These are a few things you might want to include in your party- ceremonies for the sheer joy and fun of it:
Music and dancing. The fairies, leprechauns, gnomes, sprites, undines, Pan, sylphs and Earth Devas love beautiful flute music and string instruments.
Honoring of the four directions; North for clarity and direction on your path, South for innocence fun and your inner child, East for your continued Spiritual Growth and Divine Awakening and West for inspiration and gratitude for all that is and all that you have.
Also include all of the elementals, Earth, Fire, Air and Water. Make up appreciation rituals that can be as simple as making a beautiful meal or putting your bare feet in the earth. As you are aware of these elementals and are appreciating them you may start to see brighter colors in your garden or maybe catch a glimpse of flickering lights around your flowers. Another benefit is the profound feeling of connection with all that is. We are part of the Earth and part of heaven. We are heaven on Earth in form as are all of God’s Creatures and Creations.
One day as I was making a High Tea Party for my family and friendsI had the very strong thought from my garden fairies that they were the ones who had inspired tea parties in England and Ireland.Having the beauty of porcelain tea cups, sitting in a flower garden with a sparkling Rose table cloth and napkins set the preamblefor enjoying tiny cakes, clotted cream, scones, berryjam, lemon curd, rainbow crystal sugar and, of course, the dainty watercress sandwiches. Beautiful teapots filled with steaming liquid amber made the celebration complete.I’ve always thought of these as Prosperity Teas.Taking the time to be together and relax in a garden is a very potent and luxurious Earth ceremony.Before I realized the fairies had inspired these gatherings I always became so happy and inspired to create when my sister, Charmaine, ormy friend, Janette, gave one to me. Now I love taking the time for a tea party even more.
So, I hope you will join in with all of the Earth elementals and people to celebrate Earth Day April 22, 2019. You will soon realize every day is Grandmother Earth,Mother Earth, Gaia, Sophia, Virgo Day.You will definitely be inspired by this process to co-create your own heaven on Earth.
I love the infinite variety of nature.Every aspect of nature tells me I’m loved by a loving Creator who has provided everything I need for a happyand healthy life.I didn’t always know this.Life leads us all to our own unique discoveries andlearning experiences that bring us to our truth and love.Sananda has taught me that everything is created out ofLife, Truth and Love.
My journey has taken me on a path to know that Grandmother Earth and Mother Nature bestow infinite, abundant blessings on us every moment of every day.
Many years ago I discovered that mindfully, silently, walking in nature would bring me to the same peace and stillness that meditating would bring. I would walk for about 20 minutes and then find a bench or rock along the path to sit on and just be. Often I would be refreshed and ready for the next part of my day. Sometimes I would be inspired to call a friend who would greet me with, “You are so telepathic– I was just thinking of you.”
Mostly though, I would marvel at how that simple walk had given me well being and an appreciation of the infinite variety of nature.In this receptive state I could feel the air I was breathing nourishing me.The sun on my back made me feel comforted and relaxed.Every time I walked in this way I saw something new with the flowers and trees or the birds and squirrels or the dogs walking by.Each new thing unique in that moment, not to be seen again. Whether a cloud formation, sunrise or sunset, a bird song, a breeze, a rainbow or the fragrance of a new lilac blossom: each having its moment.Wondrous.
You are that unique Being.Ever changing, discovering your wholeness and connection to your Creator and all that is.Nothing is missing within you. You are blossoming like the rose.
Saint Germaine teaches me that everything we need is at hand. Our abundance, health and well being can be found in the Life, Truth and Love of Nature. Whether you experience Mother Nature as the Outback, Wilderness, Outside, the Wild Jungle, Ocean, Forest, Seashore, lakes, mountains, rivers or streams, deserts, canyons or your home garden, you will find that same Divine Love, Grandmother Earth.
I have learned we can call on the Spirit of Nature and nature spirits (Devas) for a deeper understanding of how to receive and experience more of the abundance and well being nature wants to give us.The Silphs, the air fairies, can help us breathe clearly and deeply. The health-giving air can let us know we have an infinite supply of what we need most to live on the physical plane.The Undines, the water fairies, show us we have plenty of life-giving, cleansing and healing water; pure abundance. Salamanders, or fire fairies, give us warmth and abundant life in spirit, Sunshine.We can’t forget earth fairies, Gnomes. Gnomes help us grow our food and heal our soil and animals. I’m very grateful our New Earth includes a reuniting of these kingdoms. The fairy realms, the earth realms, the heaven realms and an awakened Humanity are united and here for us Now.
The photo above is of ice crystals on the birch tree, not snow. It amazed me. The snow doesn’t stick too well to these trees, so all the crystals amazed me. It had rained with the drops sticking just long enough to freeze as the weather changed that quickly.An hour later, the crystals melted and the trees were bare again.
There is a legend that says 12 times in humanity’s history the Golden Dolphins have wanted to share their secrets, and 12 times humanity was deemed not ready. Now is the 13th time, and humanity is ready to receive the wisdom of the ages for creating a Nova Earth, a heaven on Mother, or Grandmother, Earth. You, Dear Heart, are here to create that Paradise, and the Dolphins in Spirit or in body are here to help you.
So, let’s get started.
You are as innocent as the Dolphin’s smile. You are a Divine Child. In that part of you, your child within, you can receive messages from the Dolphin consciousness as they have abilities to communicate telepathically, as you do. Water is the wonderful Love medium that helps us receive Spiritual messages, whether in the deep ocean or taking a bath or shower. The Golden, or Spirit, Dolphins want us to remember our Oneness with all that is. Awakening to all of our mystical and miracle abilities will happen when we understand that these abilities are commanded by Love, with our understanding our Oneness. Telepathy, psychic awareness, psychokinesis and advanced manifesting techniques will do no harm when commanded by Love.
Dolphins are very willing and eager to teach us about the power and joy of conscious group awareness and creativity. Working together towards common goals we will have so much more time left over for fun. Dolphins work together to move a school of fish close to shore, encircling them so their meal is easy to catch and there is plenty for all– with time left over for play and fun.
When I first began channeling, I learned easily how to channel Sananda, though my main obstacle was doubt and my feeling of being unworthy. With practice, healing and Spiritual growth over the years, this practice and ability became very real and very helpful for myself, friends and family. Channeling Dolphins is an entirely different story that is still being written.
Kudos has taught me in ways that have taken me years to understand. A couple of years after opening to channel I felt compelled to learn how to scuba dive. Fun. Yay! Joy— until our third open-Water dive. Our new instructor decided to take us to an advanced dive spot that our previous teacher had told us not to dive until we were experienced. Fear crept in, and I wondered why she was taking us to this spot when our lessons included taking off our masks and dropping and and retrieving our weight belts. The ocean surge above us became so strong (we were down about 25 feet) that it was dizzying. My fear turned to terror as I felt drowning may be a possibility, when I heard the sweetest sound in my awareness. It was Kudos.
They said: “We didn’t bring you here to drown you. We want you to feel us in our element.” I regained calm and finished the lessons. The next dive was pure bliss.
About a week later we had our deep-Water, 60-feet dive. For this dive, I understood what Kudos was teaching me: the peace, beauty, silence and bliss of the deep ocean. Indescribable.
One fun part was seeing all of the sea life alive and swimming. The kelp beds swaying, clams, sea snails, star fish, sand dollars and scallops all moving and colorful. Fish and baby sea lions nipping at our fins. All together and moving. Such a contrast to the weathered and bleached lifeless forms on the beach. Movement, harmony, silence, peace and beauty were my rewards for trusting Kudos’ guidance. I can remember every moment of that dive, even though it was 30 years ago.
A wonderful book that can take you into the Spirit of Dolphins energetically is Angels of the Sea: Sacred Dolphin Art of Atlantis, by Michele Gold. One of my favorite books of all time. She manifested her trip to the Bahamas to swim with Wild Dolphins all with the help of Spirit Dolphin guidance.
Her art translates her experiences in vivid images that take the viewer into the Dolphin world and consciousness.
“Some people feel the Rain, others just get wet.” – Bob Marley
When we understand our relationship with feeling, Love and Water we can make great strides in our spiritual growth.
Water is the mystical element and is a demonstration of Love in the physical realm. When we contemplate all that Water is and does the conclusion leads us straight to Love. Water can be a solid, liquid, vapor and merge so eloquently into air that it becomes an invisible dew point. In its natural state, it is colorless and tasteless. Water contains the essence of the Divine Mystery, LOVE.
A vivid reminder of the Divine Aspect of Water came to me while driving through Eastern Oregon. Driving East for miles and hours, on the left side of the highway was Badlands State Park. A very desolate landscape. So much so that you could easily see why the region was called “Bad Lands.” Very dry with no green to be seen. No visible birds or animals, desolate and depressing.
On the right side of the highway the scene was the complete opposite. Wind turbines had provided the electricity to pump Water from the nearby creek to create a lush and thriving green farming landscape. Lots of activity with the prosperous feeling of a rich farm and cattle ranch. The flowers, green alfalfa, horses and bustling farm activities made me feel happy. Water had turned The so-called Badlands into a beautiful and productive lively landscape.
We know this to be true, that Water is life. An important part of our spiritual growth is to let Water help us heal our emotional body, our feelings. Our feelings, our Love nature, hold the keys to our connections with our truth and our own mystical Divinity. Water is One, and connects us with all that is. The Persian poet Rumi remarks: “You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean in a drop.” We are like that. We are one with All in our spirit. Water teaches us that oneness.
One of my favorite articles about Water is found in Restoring the Earth: Visionary Solutions from the Bioneers, by Kenny Ausubel. A contributing author is Jennifer Greene. Though her article is only 10 pages long it is concentrated wisdom of the holy aspects of Water gleaned from a lifetime of studying Water. Each time I read her article I learn something more and am inspired to do more of my own research with Water as Love and the Divine Mystery. Water, Love, is always available and part of me—Oneness in form.
The introductory paragraph holds the keys to the profound beingness of Water.
In this sacred element of nature, she reveals a magical dance of cosmic forces played out through this remarkable vessel of universal dissolution that is so forgiving, yet powerful enough to wear down a rock over time with its Watery persistence.
We can hold our glass of Water with Love and gratitude and make that Water more pure, and healthful and add to the Love of all Water. As we respect and Love Water, our own feeling nature will be healed and will contribute to the healing of humanity and Grandmother Earth.
The photo above is of Water, air, Earth and fire, our sacred elements transmitting Love to You. Rose quartz for Divine Love, clear quartz to transmit and increase the Love and amethyst to awaken our crown chakra, Spirit.
Would you like to have a simple and easy way to feel refreshed, energized and ready for a new day?
When possible do this right at sunrise, or any time of day. Walk into your yard or a natural place and stand barefoot on Grandmother Earth. Turn slowly and thank each of the directions: East, South, West and North. As you do this, sense that each direction has a different quality and feel to it. When I face North, I feel Peaceful, mentally clear and calm. When I face South I feel my child within is ready to play. Facing East always brings me reverence and a willingness to have a new spiritual perspective, even in just small ways. I’ve always loved facing West, as I’ve had the joy of living near the Ocean for most of my life. Looking out to the Western Ocean horizon always brings me expansion, Peace, and creativity.
Next, feel the enlivening Earth energy rising up in you and giving you refreshment. Bend over at the waist, let your arms hang freely and just let go of any worries, doubts or fears. Slowly stand up straight, lift your arms up, open and reach for the sky, and allow the Father Sky Love-Light to fill you up with fresh, life-giving air. Thank each of the Elementals: Air, Water, Fire and Earth for the liveliness they give you.
Next, if you are able to, jump up and down. You are refreshed, reset and ready for a new day.
Today, I’d like to share books and a website that I have found to be valuable. Each have inspired, uplifted and healed me in a very real way.
“In order to enter a deeper relationship with Nature, I was required to become a participant with Nature rather than continue in the role of onlooker. I did not find this at all easy. I was propelled into a metaphysical reality, a reality I did not enter willingly… We come to this planet with a clearly defined destiny, but as soon as we take on human form, we forget it. Life then carries us kicking and screaming toward our perfect goal while we try our hardest to abort the mission.” – Journey into Nature: A Spiritual Adventure by Michael J. Roads
I love this book as it is a real journey into Nature where you meet Pan, the Spirit of Nature, and the beingness of trees, minerals, rivers and dolphins. A truly transformative delight.
The next book came to me as a very welcome surprise one Christmas, from my sister, Charmaine. I had wanted to read it, as in the early 1980’s I had the opportunity of visiting Findhorn in Scotland. The author, Dorothy Maclean, was one of the three founders of the Findhorn community. To Hear the Angels Sing is a book you can read over and over again and feel it is the first time. It is rich with meaning and understanding of the spiritual intelligence and unconditional Love in and of Nature.
“It is said that God is Love. This is so, and as creation becomes more conscious, it expresses greater love. The essence of life, no matter what its consciousness, is Love. This is true of all kingdoms, and man’s greatest contribution to life on the planet is consciously to love, and so to bring health, vigor and beauty to life.” – The Landscape Angel, To Hear the Angels Sing
Today, more than 40 years later, the Findhorn community has become a thriving Ecovillage offering many subjects in Biodynamic gardening and all the principles Findhorn is based on. The main theme is to become beneficial stewards of Grandmother Earth.
Perelandra-ltd.com is a site you could spend days on. It contains Machaelle Wright’s books (some you can read on the site), flower essence products and videos containing her products and lovely views of her Center for Nature Research in Jeffersonton, Virginia. This site is a treasure for sure. Enjoy.
