SUPER BLOOD WOLF MOON 2019!

My daughter was howling at the moon last night… she turned to my husband and me and said “HOWL, MommyDaddy! HOWL AT THE MOON!”

And so we howled! In preparation for tonight’s Super Full Blood Wolf Moon of 2019! I am sure our neighbors were like… okay! But there we three were! We practiced howling like the wolves who traditionally mate during January and February… hence why it’s called “Wolf” moon. Tonight, Sunday the 20th into the 21st of January 2019 – at 7:30pm Pacific Standard Time, in the City of Angels, Hollywood, California, we can view the moon as it passes behind the Earth – and create a full eclipse… it won’t happen again until May 2021. So gather round, all magical creatures, and let’s ground these New Year spells to the hemisphere – it’s time to cast away that which does not serve us and embrace TRUE CHANGE! Howl it away! And call in your true companions, material, spiritual and manifesting!

As it is, SUNRISE is my time of day. Each morning I try to be present to see it expand over my view of the City. At this time, I meditate, think about my day, how I want to approach it. How I want to be different. How I can let go of any resentments. How I want to CHANGE. As we approach this exciting time  tonight, let’s think about letting go of that which does not serve us. That which does not spark joy, (thank you, Ms. Kondo for the reminder!) That which is holding us back, or makes us feel heavy.

This morning’s sunrise was quite lovely – blood orange sky beginnings. I tried to capture it on my phone camera and alas, it doesn’t quite work the magic like a true old Pentax single shot camera would. I should stop trying with the phone and get out my Pentax for these moments! The sunrise is always gorgeous above Sunset Boulevard. The magic that is the street, the lore, the energy and stillness before the crowds. We check in with each other psychically, are we ready for this? Do you really want to do this? YAS, QUEEN! LET’S GO FOR IT! And for tonight.. the MOON RISE? YES! LET US HOWL!! We should all live on Moonrise! I am sure there is a street or boulevard called so!

Here is a quick article on this Eclipse 2019 – from Refinery 29 – And there are many others to be found. Howl it out and be free, my friends. Let this first Full Moon of the year – of 2019 – be the one to change your next Sunrise. We are in a cycle, might as well get on and feel the turn!

THAT MAGIC!

Version 2

Whilst I was meditating this morning… I was driven to interrupt this not-really-meant-to-be-interrupted moment…to watch Susan Boyle on YouTube. She just came to me… it was indeed her now infamous Britain’s Got Talent performance of “I Dreamed A Dream.”

Susan wanted to sing like Elaine Paige… and the next video… I watched Susan Boyle sing with Elaine Paige. From “Phantom of the Opera,” their magnificently synchronistic duet “I Know Him So Well” is simply the utmost. Another dream come true!

I’ve seen Susan Boyle’s “I Dreamed A Dream” video many times, but each and every viewing, I am swelled to tears. Why? I know what’s coming…

But what is it? What makes me cry so? Susan – making her dream come true on stage at that very moment? Her actually singing about her dream…She simply said she always wanted to perform in front of a large audience – and thus. History is made. And we can relive it again and again. It’s magical.

I think that’s it. We are witnessing her splendor of making magic. The magical moment a dream comes true. And that experience… it’s only a few minutes long. But it is life-changing. When we practice our dreams coming true, when we truly BELIEVE, magic happens. It is our intention.

MAKINGIT

We use our intention throughout the day without a single blink of thought to it. Our intention is our thoughts. I could pick up that piece of trash, I shall and I will. Another sip of coffee. Another scroll of Insta.  A change of the radio. A thought of peace in the whirl of the whirl of the whirl. Halloween is Happy New Year for us witches. Time to practice practical magic for the good of all! Time to get into ACTION and properly use my INTENTION. Keep the mind FOCUSED and ON POINT and join together, so we can all make a dream come true.

HALLOWEEN! Day of New Year, Samhain, All Souls honoring. We must cast our MAGIC for the good of all and for the change each of us wants to create in our own lives. We can have our MOMENT. We can have our NEW. We can MAKE MAGIC and share our own SPECTACULARness. And be GRATEFUL as we do, as we can, as we WILL!

Have a MAGICAL, MOMENTOUS DAY AND YEAR! BLESSED BE!!

Super Blue Blood Moon Eclipse Magic!

IMG_5735 2There is a reason we awaken to experience change. To see magic of space, nature, earth, moon, sun and universe taking place – right before our very eyes. There is a reason for us to be present for these quiet but truly spectacular occurrences in life. There are these moments that shift us to remind us we are but one speck in the gigantic ocean of being, yet we are the largest speck because we are the one who is seeing it and taking it in. We are both big and small – but we are at that moment – at all moments – reminded we are ONE. The spirit of art, of music, of writing, of filming, of drawing, of dancing, of painting, of spoken word, of ardent smiles, creatrix manifesting all comes from the one place – yet we all take that energy and release it like lightening bolts from our fingertips in a hundred million thousand trillion different ways. The energy is the one energy the release is divinely manifest as completely unique to each and every creation. MAGIC! ART! NEW! CHANGE! So today in this brilliant full moon celebration, we can all go out and be the change we want to see in the world… and embrace it. Be grateful for this opportunity that we choose to take. Let go of the old story, welcome the new and spice it up a little, why not? Blessed Be! xoxo

Bloom After the Fall

I love to find flowers on the pavement. I have photographed many encounters and am fascinated by the art they create after their fall to the ground. We think of flowers upright, on a stem or floating in crystal bowl at a fancy dress event underneath sparkling lights… but on the ground, possibly going to ignored, stepped on… disregarded for they are not in their usual surroundings. These are the flowers I learn from. If I fall in any way, a delve into a character defect that causes me to act badly, be forgetful, unthinking… or if a project I thought was going to go into action has be halted by another changing their mind… or if I just have a bad day, and my colorful blooms have fallen… I can just change my perspective and look at it differently.  Oh! A New Perspective. There’s an idea!

bougainvillea

It’s the glory of it not being over until it’s over… or just when you thought it was one way and it turns out to be totally different. How do I respond? How do I respond to change?  And here we are… the first rains in Los Angeles of the New Year 2018! Two words: SO EXCITING! It was just POURING moments ago early this hour of crystal blue persuasion. Glorious rain! And so much will bloom because of it!

RosesonPavement

And so here we are into our Winter, blooming after our Fall! Thrilling! And the stories! The stories, these blooms do tell! Many of us have many stories of falling… falling to pieces… falling apart… falling through…and as we come out, we come through, wherever we are and  tell our stories. We are not alone in these similar experiences…so it’s fun to share. Where has that fallen rose just come from? Who dropped it? Did I drop it? I’ve dropped a LOT, let me tell you. My manners most of all! But they’ll grow again… I know I have to pull them out and replant them, plug back in. I may have had a tricky time of it lately… but I’m blooming after all… It’s happening and I’m excited! Like a fallen bloom…I’m excited to shine in a new way.  Every day, every moment we have this chance! Let’s bloom after our falls, shall we? Bloomin’ lovely shall we be! Blessed BE!

WITCH IS YOUR DOMAIN?

Ah the church bells are tolling – it is 12:00pm and a very HAPPY HALLOWEEN! HAPPY SAMHAIN and HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!! Those of us who know from WITCH WE COME can enjoy the celebration of such a FESTIVE and FORCEFUL time in the UNIVERSE. The ENERGY of the NEW is ever PRESENT and I am FEELING the NEWNESS in its ABUNDANCE the time is NIGH for CHANGE!

Witch brings me to the QUESTION of our PURPOSE – and the KNOWING of WHERE WE ARE IN THE SCHEME OF OUR LIVES. Are we the FOREFRONT in the LIGHT or the back in the DARK? Are we GOING HIGH when they go low? WITCHES FLY don’t you know?

And this goes for all women and men boys and girls and all in between aside and TOGETHER – however you IDENTIFY is your SELF your TRUTH and your BEING – it doesn’t matter in the end for we are all ENERGY BEINGS exchanging our energy, SHARING IT and MELDING it and MIXING it up! The great LESSON that I am constantly LEARNING over and over again is that I HAVE CREATED MY SURROUNDINGS AND MY LIFE. Everything is a RESULT OF MY THINKING. Be it ‘good’ or ‘bad’ or often, ‘indifferent’ – IT IS WHAT IT IS BECAUSE I HAVE THOUGHT IT SO. I cannot blame or commend anyone but me – as tempting as that may be!

I remember today that I am THE WITCH OF MY DOMAIN and my domain is all my family, friends, work and life. It is EVERYTHING I HAVE CREATED surrounding me are the RESULTS OF MY CHOICES. The lesson I learn is that I can make the MAGIC – MAGIC IS TO BEND OR SHAPE. Magic is the mayhem, the PROMISE, the BEGINNING and the MOVEMENT. Magic is the MYSTERY we continue to DISCOVER. MAGIC IS THE MOTHER, THE FATHER and THE SPIRIT OF MY SOUL. WE ARE ALL ONE IN THE MAGIC TOGETHER. We are the BALL OF SPIRIT. The LIGHT EVERLASTING the BEAUTY and the BUGS, the BRILLIANCE and the BLASTING THROUGH THE OLD TO GET TO THE NEW.

SO HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY MY MAGIC ONES, happy to have a new day, a new WAY to SEE and to BE and to SHARE. When we trick or treat, DRESS UP AND PLAY, we are making new magic for all to partake. So take a Hula Hoop and shake, rattle and roll… enjoy the rain, the breeze and the EASE and play to your HEART’S CONTENT! Happy Halloween to all and share in the MERRIMENT and remember to JUST LOVE today!! BLESSED BE!! xoxoxo

HULA HOOP!

Me as Vampirina’s mom, Oksana ~ doing a Hula Hoop! Happy Halloween!

So! Writing!

So! Writing! YES. Well. Um. TRUTH IS… obviously, from my last posting being from OCTOBER, it hasn’t happened. WHY? The EXCUSES are many. The reasons are few. I can now share that I have an ah-mazing three year-old daughter who has been in our lives since February. Now that the adoption is final and we are a family and I can share this publicly. I am blessed BEYOND. My husband and I are… and she is an ANGEL and a BRILLIANT LIGHT. She teaches me every single day. She is wise, courageous and astute. Funny, thoughtful and caring. She is her own person with her own life and is doing fabulously.

But she is not why I haven’t been writing. She is why I SHOULD BE writing. I am exhausted, true. I haven’t slept – but I haven’t for many years, let alone, months. I have realized many things that are the reasons.

I am distracted constantly. Perhaps I actually may have the adult ADHD – a condition that runs in our family. I also have the disease of alcoholism. But being over fourteen years sober that cannot be a reason. I have the tools to help with this. I don’t wish to drink, but perhaps that which drove me to drink – to hide, to escape, to postpone my life – THAT – for why I chose to drink –may be the reason.

I often feel I am living sideways, I feel – alongside my real self. I have written before that I have a parallel life – one where I am living fully and richly in Europe. I have flashes of it daily, usually from the south of France or the hills of Tuscany. Sometimes I am in London, often in Kensington High Street. Or Paris – walking around the First Arrondissement, headed across the Jardin des Tuileries. Sometimes I’m riding down the Grand Canal in Venice. But I am traveling in Europe all the time. Then I come to and look at my house and think, how did I get here?

And… that is not – alas, as they say, necessarily all good. I kinda should maybe be in my physical body sometimes? I guess. Unless! I know! I am gathering information for my next book?

jane-virgin

In the late hours of night, after all have gone to bed, I have been watching JANE THE VIRGIN, which I am absolutely mad for – it is – by far – THE BEST SHOW ON TELEVISION. But it is also not why I haven’t been writing. Or sleeping. I actually sleep better if I can see an episode.

Though Jane’s own journey about writing has surely helped me to think about my experiences with achieving my own dream to be a successful writer. Watching this show has invigorated me. And I am sure, also, stalled me. Not only for spending all the time watching it – I am currently on Season 3, Chapter Forty-Nine and its taking everything in my power not to binge it straight to catch up in real time. But I digress. I am not writing instead – because the show is brilliant and funny and witty and wise – and is literally, like a show I have always wanted to write – but haven’t. It touches on so many areas of human relationships; it’s really therapy, honestly. And it overwhelms me with its brilliance. So I stall. But … only for the last few moments. Or months, really. Honestly… If I am being honest, truthfully, Jane the Virgin has helped me to awaken, to grow up and to look at myself in ways I may not have wanted to. And it makes me happy. Who doesn’t love a good telenovela to awaken all the senses? I’ve even got my godmother to watch! We think Rogelio looks like my husband, and he does. Handsome, ever so good-looking and funny too!

But it’s Jane’s struggle with her motherhood and writing and living and loving and being that I relate to. It’s the perfect show at the perfect time and I don’t feel so out at sea.

Like Jane, I love to write. And like Jane experiences, it’s hard do focus on it when there is SO MUCH ELSE TO BE DONE.

And there lies the problem. The so much else to be done is what I have grown up with witnessing taking precedence over what MUST BE DONE NOW. Which is live in the present, and not be afraid to take the leap – literally – to do what I am meant to be doing.

So I know what it is, question is – WILL I CHANGE? Change is the only thing that is consistent in life. But I know I can try to halt it for the time being. But deep down, I know I have to FACE IT. And EMBRACE IT. And say, I can MAKE A DIFFERENT CHOICE…but do I? There are thank you notes to write after all…

So! Writing. YES! That! Here I am watching the sunrise on this soon to be promise of rainy day. And I have to try to be honest with myself. Not TRY. BE. It will be a change. There, I’ve said it. Or rather written it. Now I have to take the next indicated ACTION and by God and Goddess, DO WHAT I SAY I AM GOING TO DO! THERE. NOW. OK, SO!…
