…the great Gifts are there,
ready to be taken,
to be in taken…
Sky and Earth,
Health and Energy,
Care for our Earth,
and our Earth Beings,
Care for our People.
Care for our Spirit.
It was on a beautiful and sweet day, probably early afternoon, or maybe early morning?
I was walking towards an open Field which I love very much, Space, View, Flowers…Birds, Insects, big Sky…
I sat down on the top of the curving Landscape, in Contemplation.
Silence, Peace, Room to be,
recharging from the hectic energy of a spiritual festival I have been part of for many years now.
Wind was kind, Light was kind, friends with me.
Time slowed down, Awareness and Thankfulness grew,
and a kind of Perfection that happens sometimes.
I noticed something in the view got blurred to the left, by the long Grasses.
I looked, and, in small first, then in larger groups,
The Grasses were releasing their Seeds to the Wind!
They spitted their Seeds out, softly, like a strange, gentle Rain.
Suddenly it was all over, and suddenly it was gone.
I was witness to a Miracle of a few seconds,
and full of Awe, Gratitude, and Humbleness.
Brightness, Light, Light, Light!
Everything there, everything sharp, precise.
The Sun uncovers what is, and what is not.
Our Eyes can see what we like, and what we don’t.
All is laid there, to be contemplated.
In the Spiral of Life.
It is the Apex,
Connect with it, in Gratitude,
for all the Gifts we have,
and we receive.
Celebrate in Joy
because Nothing is permanent.
Dance, dance, dance!
Celebrate in Truth, because it is all revealed.
Celebrate Change, that make us grow.
Celebrate Love and Compassion,
Peace and Transformation,
Give away and let go…
Let go, let go, let go…
take the next Step.
… how come I only talk “Nature” and “Human things” here, not about Visions or Spirit talk.
I may have said it already,but some ask. So I will explain again.
Visions and Spirit talks are private matter in my opinion, and I share them occasionally with who it is needed to be shared with, or in my teachings training, or at times at workshops and ceremonies, when I feel “allowed to”.
I feel they are very intimate stories, secret stories, that have to be respected as such. They could be used to “make my ego grow”, to impress, to gain power on you, to “buy” you, to show how “amazing I am”…
No, no! There are teachings which stay “inside”, and teaching which “can be shared”, and so it is with me.
Though, when I had to write my book, many stories were “released”, but it was hard to do…
And, most stories are so specific and special, that another person may judge them either to be very “important” or very “humble”… and some of them are, but to the one who receives them, they are just blessings, and when we receive them, our Souls are enriched. They are not “to be sold” in any ways.
Learning techniques, in the digital era, plenty, everywhere, so that I do not write about either…
Illumination, Extatic moments, Nothingness, Fullness, Rapture, Visions are private and Sacred, and to be kept and respected as such.
This is the explanation, and my way. Others may have other ways, and believe different. Everyone is right, if they are honest with what they say and do.
Hope you understand.
Pieces of my Soul as gifts? All the photographs here on the homesite are mine, to share …
Our Earth, our Plants and Animals were thirsty,
Our Waters sinking more and more…
Our little Rivers drying up…
Every time I “try” to complain about Rain,
even with one single Thought,
my Helpers touch my Head and say
“Remember, you are not alone, you People, here!”
“It is not all about you, and what you like!”
“Love, love the Rain, the Waters…”…
Everything is shining NOW,
The celestial Shower,
another Blessing …
The Earth Snakes are out Dancing and drinking,
Birds are singing much!,
Blossoms and Leaves are opening…
Have a Rain shower!
It is powerful!
It is wonderful,
It is Healing!
And the Sun will be back,
and Life will again explode
in all its Beauty!
While You were…
in the Infinite Circle
of that Moment,
half Asleep, half Awake,
back into your Mother’s Womb,
released from your Mother’s Womb,
into your own Womb,
under the Rain of Petals,
We loved You fully…
You were Fragile,
and You were Strong,
You were Present,
You were Truth…
You in Us,
and Us in You…
And as You rose,
to cross the Gate
to the Other Side,
We rose with You.
You came back,
to Embrace Us
with your new Smile…
Be well, Sister,
Be well, Sisters!
Thank You from my Heart.
Long time passed, since the last larger ceremonies.
I was invited to do a combination of rite of passage, (birthday, marriage, and ending of education), connected with a Womanhood ceremony. And in corona times, distance, no holding hands, etc.
Sounds “serious”? It certainly was!
Many unknown Women with all kinds of background and belief system, to connect for a purpose…
Many different Flowers, in the Field of her Life!
We started by “uniting”, then “worked on her”, and our support was great, until she moved through the “invisible/visible” door to her Future.
Then she came “back” to us, and we went on together, all, celebrating Sisterhood, Womanhood, Life in all its facets.
It was fantastic for us all , I could feel it, and see it, the few times I remembered to open my eyes.
So much dedication, so much depth!
And, I fell in Love with them all, and in doing ceremonies again.
That is one of the best parts of my work.
Creating Union, and Magic, Together! 🙂
External manifestations of “human folly”?
We made motorways for bykes, in some forests,
so some can run real fast…
so some of us get even stressed there…
And we even walk “one way” because of corona…
sheeeeeep, sheeeep, sheeeep…
(maybe it is reasonable, but weird)…
in the earlier days it was for cars,
but now it is for all…:)
We walk, and talk and talk,
and make lots of noises…
wherever we are,
like “all space” belonged to us…
(but at least we are alive!)
Aren’t we funny,
(or is it sad ?)…
It is best to smile,
and take it easy…
EXTERNAL ISSUES only?
This too will hopefully pass…
Just in case, unless you know it,
avoid Forests close to the city
in the weekends, if you wish for Peace,
Or learn to disappear!
(good learning) 🙂
Look around you, smile!
Light has grown until this moment, the moment of “Balance”. From now It will shine even brighter, and Illuminate everything, for a while. Light, Life Energy.
Reflect fo a while…Our world is still there, and we are Growing, if we allow ourselves to, like everything around us. Like the fresh new Plants, we are opening, transforming…
We shine, even when we think we do not…
Expand where we need to, and retreat, where we need to. Let us be honest, and grateful. Let us…
Turn on our Fire, and our Inner Fire. Cleanse, bless, and be blessed. Allow the Sun to touch us, charge us, show us, and teach us. Let us…Breathe through the process. Let us…
Give respect and greetings to All we are receiving and giving, and for all the Beings who are touching our Hearts. And to ourselves, we are Magic! And they are!
Light and Shadow, it all needs to Be. See the Lights, and see the Shadows. Let us…
Plant a strong and sweet Prayer into the Garden of Concious, into the Garden of Dreams, for who and what we Care for.
Let us… Share with our Friends, whoever or whatever they are, in any way we feel we can.
And remember Earth, the Skyes, and the Beyond.
Have a lovely day and celebration!
Lately, inspired by a friend, I started to “recollect” and write down my “older” (in time) shamanic experiences.
Most of them will remain “private”, and some I feel I can share.
This one belongs to 2000, when I travelled to Peru.
I was of course visiting the sacred site of Machu Picchu, the day after reaching it from the Inca trail (three days walk, up first, and down after, the picture on my front page here on the homepage, belongs to the path going down through the jungle).
So, I was so extremely lucky that the weather was uncertain, and not so many visitors…
Among other places, I reached the “World’s center” up up, a very particular sacred stone you may have seen in photos from there. It was raining lightly, and I was alone. Spectacular view.
Respectfully, and very carefully, I sat by the Stone, and contacted it. I closed my eyes, prayed for the World, and asked for a “private message” about my work (if, if…)
At the moment I opened my eyes again, the Rainbow appeared, and everything stood still.
“All Colors, All Colors” the Rainbow’s message was.
I stayed in the silent Bliss of the moment, then thanked, and moved on. That was it.
I felt very honored, and deeply thankful. I understood the message.
All Colors were us, the People, all kinds, all colors, all races, all characters and all beliefs. All One, all Sacred.
That was what I had to deal with.
I was on the “right” path!
Before, and, even more, after, I try to honor and practice this teaching both in my Life and in my work, even it is not always easy.
And when my Patience is “shaken”, I always remember the Rainbow.
I am not much of a net person, just starting… but I do see some things there, like most everyone.
Last night, after work, I went to my boyfriend , who was watching You Tube, a part where hurt or sick Eagles
are collected and rescued, when possible, and helped back to their Lives.
It was very touching, like every time one sees or experiences a Being helping another Being, much Compassion and Love.
And there is much on the rescue theme, as you probably know.
Then, since we are curious, we wanted to see more Mars pictures, but could not find them yet. Instead, we found
a panel of experts from Nasa, answering questions to whoever would call and ask.
And, (surprise surprise), children were calling, and time was given to answer them also. One could say, “Of course,
that is how it should be!”
We all agree, and let us give more of that respect, they are our future!
What a sweet sweet World we ALSO have!
At times, when I am lucky, I find good messages all over. This one I have had for a long long time on my table, and I am reading it every day. Who or where it came from, I do not remember, maybe Miguel Ruiz, maybe Byron Katie, maybe someone else…
Anyway, I like to share it with you, for inspiration and reflection. My little paper says:
NOTHING OF WHAT YOU THINK IS TRUE.
TO KNOW THIS IS FREEDOM.
And most often it is like that 🙂
My Friend and I had been on a long city walk. It was Saturday, and People and Dogs were out, strolling with distance.
It had been good to see and feel both the city landscapes, the Waterfront, and the People. We were a little tired, but satisfied, and time to go home now soon.
We found a free bench, and sat down, each one on one’s side, for the last sharing, before leaving each other.
We noticed a very small and short Person, wearing a mask, walking further away. “Who can that person be?” We looked at each other, and at the Person.
The corona mask filled much too much in the little body…It looked weird, and, with all respect, a little funny.
The small Person approached as we kept on talking, and … surprise surprise, came to sit down right between us.
We greeted her(?) both with our eyes, finished our conversation, greeted again, and left.
What was that all about? Even in the middle of “corona times”? (the brain, the brain…)
We both agreed that it may be about the “need” of Nearness, or was it maybe the need of “breaking rules”, or “not understanding” them, or “not caring”, or ?
In those few moments, the Energy had been sweet and gentle between us,
Whatever and whoever she (?) was,
we had “touched” and “recognized” each other’s Presence,
through our smiling Eyes,
in a moment where corona did not exist,
had no sense or
no power, at all…
And I got touched in my Heart.
Messages can come millions ways, and they do.
Some are made for us to buy or to “convert” to something,
some are “nonsense” and useless,
and some are precious and may give some kind of Fruit.
The other day in a supermarket,
I got a “good one”, that I like to share with You.
It stood written in green, on a cardbord box (without any other sign of product or publicity),
and it said: “DO WHAT YOU LOVE, LOVE WHAT YOU DO”.
Well, a good reminder, don’t You think?
Thanks to the Ones who produced it!
maybe we feel like this…
out of place?
We are hopefully fine,
beyond it all.
…the “little being” was lying there, violet monkey with a hand on its heart! And the other arm opened to welcome… And not only…Shall we take it as an omen from the Spirit world? I do! 🙂 It was on a shaman walk…
Let’s call our Friends and hear how they are! And maybe have some fun if possible! Smiling and laughing, best Medicine!
…The city is rather empty these days, as we know.
(and it gives a strange feeling to the Heart with so little Life),
I choose to not allow me to get sad,
but to enjoy this condition…
The city reveals itself in another way.
Buildings, room, locations towards each other, lines, angles, prospective…
And it has a sense of Emptyness,
and it is all in my judging Mind, ….
…be it good, be it bad, be unbearable, be fine,
or just be.
Moving through this,
and lots of Christmas lights,
I met People, it was fine,
and they were Alive,
and the Contact was good,
a few Smiles.
I choose to embrace this like an Adventure,
like another Dimension,
like another Sight.
A possibility to experience
a different way.
Take care, Blessings and (try to) enjoy. We will soon or later go back to our “normality”, what is the rush? We know that, now we better deal with this as good as we can.
And think….how lucky we are…. we can walk our streets in Peace!
Our moment now is strange and tough, when we follow the news in our World. Many things are “on the balance”, and it can tip in different ways.
A few “things” are challenging Us from every side, and sure You know what I am talking about.
The “Limbo” state is changing into a more “fearful” one, for many of Us, regarding corona, one of the “few things”.
If We choose to keep Earth connection (connection to Our Bodies, Our Love, Our Reality, and what we need and love to do), and take care of each other (awake, aware and respectful), at least we will not get “too” lost, fearful, angry or depressed, (which even may “invite” sickness also, some of Us believe). We know, now We “have to” do.
We are Living in a weird movie, We got to deal with it, of course, and We will. Humans are good to adapt, so We do, We adapt, and survive.
“Living” may be different than “surviving”. How do We live with all this? We learn how.
Still…”the movie” is a movie, and making room between Us and “the movie” may be healthy, and lighter.
“The movie” was there before this movie, it just maybe did not feel so dramatic and scary, We were not “completely involved”. Now We are.
Nature was there before, and it is now. More and more of Us are starting to “use” Nature now, let it be a Friendship, and not “just use”, let it be that, what the Shamans, and many others always have told…
Let it be that We heal by coming closer to Earth. Let it be that We learn. Let it be that We open.
Let it be that We listen, that We look, that We feel.
Scary, a little. Possibility, new? Maybe.
We keep standing, and do Our Best.
We are Grateful for all that is, and all We have, and create positive Energy around Ourselves.
We all know how to move, and how to stop. We all know, if We look, what is “right”.
If We believe We can help by Healing, or Prayer, let Us do.
And why I am telling this? To remind You, and Me to Trust.
Take care and be good!
So, when one is busy, “silly things” can happen…Here an example.
A “sweet reminder” came out of it: really, it is such small a thing, maybe not even worth writting about it, but, one never knows, and then it did make a “difference” to me.
We all know “Shit happens sometimes”, or “Mess happens”…
I had a smoke, and I went doing other things… (one of those days).
As I came back, the ashtray had fallen.
Ash on the sofa… on my fine fine purple velvet cloth! Baaaad! 🙂
I said to myself “OOOOh! I made a mess!”
Right after “myself” said to “myself”
“No, you did not,
It JUST HAPPENED”!
I do not know if you can see the difference. I certainly could FEEL it.
And it felt lighter.
Sweet evening to you all, and a smile from me.
photo: Apple art from my friend the Mouse, catched while happily eating an apple which should have been for the black Bird. But… It almost made a Heart… Good Mouse!
I saw the Cat playing, and my antennas woke up.
Run run out now!
The previous day I had been contemplating this amazing little Being, a very very young Mouse. Its head was bigger than its body, and legs looked funny…a wonderful sight.
Run out now, save the Mouse!
Tha Cat was playing God, or following its Nature, and right enough the little Mouse was there…
I ran out, and chased the Cat away, so I played God by changing a situation which did not “belong” to me at all, or I just followed my Nature.
The Mouse played God, and took a chance to run, or just followed his Nature.
It ran into the Sweatlodge Fire pit, and hide.
Cat came back, same story again.
The Mouse talked to me twice, but I did not get it.
At least I freed the Mouse from its hiding,
I thought “best thing to do”, but…
the Mouse ran away in the Cat direction,
except the Cat was gone.
The point is….???
Maybe there is no point,
Maybe it is up to You to figure it out…
Maybe it is just a story, and it is sweet.
And maybe “God” likes it too.
We are Together in this strange Moment in Time, caught in the corona Limbo.
For some of Us it is ok, for others not so easy, but We are here.
On Tuesday, Equinox, representing Balance, Equality between Light and Dark,
Change coming, again.
The Fruits of this period, both in our private Lives and in the World, are many and different, some of them scary and horrible, some of them giving and positive.
Let Us collect the Gifts and Teachings, and discard the NonSense.
We are Growing through this!
We Inhale the Beauty and Peace,
We Inhale Abundance and Transformation Power,
We Inhale Love and Life,
and Exhale Worries,
We Exhale Failure,
and Allow Discharge.
Be Welcome, Sun,
Be Welcome, Dark.
Let Us Move as Free,
as We can.
have a good Time.
and You will be Given to.
Doing it alone? Inspiration from previous years here on the blog.
If You wish to partecipate to my ceremony on Tuesday 22/9 at 18.00 (see under Sun ceremony). Welcome!
Tales from Life
I have had my cousin visiting.
He is 26, and I am much older,
and I have no kids.
We communicated good,
exchanged and inspired each other,
’cause we do not judge each other,
or at least so it seemed,
and we listened instead.
And we did things.
It was fresh and enriching,
and of course trying (too) at times, but…
We both seemed to understand
the part each of us has
of “Human folly”,
of unsolved parts,
of crazy Dreams,
weird patterns, etcetera…
And we laughed about it.
Generation mix is like
or Clear Water.
I had an sms (text) exchange with a man who I know a little, but we communicate regularly.
He is “a strong man”, a hard physically working man, feelings and emotions are held under control. Or at least that is what he thinks about himself and how he lives.
Even when a very close person in his family died, he could not cry.
It finally happened in connection to a visit from another close member of his family, and he immediately “packed” himself back into his “strenght” right after, denying his “fragile moment”.
He said it was a Waterfall of Tears, and as he thought it was finally finished, it bursted out again.
I complimented him for sharing with me, and for allowing himself to be “touched” by “vulnerability” .
Much is needed to some of us to open and let go…
And… even more to show ourselves to somebody else when we are “small”.
And…when we are “cracked” once, the Water of Tears may find its way again.:)
Vulnerability can be a Powerful sign of Inner Strenght.
My Mother used to say…
“The God that made it wet
Dries it up”…
That is my mantra today
While it is raining
Through my roof.
And lucky enough,
The new roof is laying on the grass,
Right outside my door.
Drops sound good!
Trying to keep Faith…
That Rain will soon stop,
And trusting God will dry it up
So we can change the roof
As soon as possible ☺
