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!

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!

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

BE SUPER ON THE SUPER MOON!

Hello, LOVELIES!!

Tonight rises a most extraordinary SUPER MOON IN ARIES!

Get MOVING, SHAKING, MANIFESTING, DOING, CREATING, BEING IN ACTION!

Take a look from this site, The Earth Child – (and many other interesting articles as well!). With this shift energy we can let go and let Goddess do her bidding with you! Or God if you prefer, Creatrix, Spirit – whatever you want to call the great ENERGY that helps you get to your inner most PEACE and CENTER. We get to HEAL, CONQUER OUR FEARS, we get to say YES! and LET GO OF ALL THAT WHICH DOES NOT SERVE YOU!

We are the ones who direct our lives. We get to make the choices that take the direction that create a RESULT. Make a CHOICE FOR CHANGE today.

So many of us our on our phones, iPads, computers, televisions, smart TVs… you know which device you use – we check our email constantly, we will text before we look up or down at the person speaking to us. We will worry if the answer doesn’t come fast enough. Or we are so distracted, we forget to call our friends, reconnect, use excuses to not reach out when we should. Let this pattern GO! This is the MOON OF CHANGE! GET OUT THERE AND MAKE IT HAPPEN! AND RECONNECT! HEAL. WE HEAL FROM WITHIN.

I am an Aries, so I am extra-INVIGORATED! But we ALL CAN BE ARIES TODAY! Get on a TRIP TO THE MOON and HAVE FUN!! If you in Los Angeles today, get out and join CicLAVia! It’s a marvelous way to connect to with our city and make new friends. Fresh IDEAS, clear AIR and EXCITING MOVEMENT!

Or write 2,000 words. Write a poem! Read a poem. Help a friend. If you owe an apology, make it today. If a friend is sad, be sure to hug them! PAY IT FORWARD. Be of SERVICE! Say, I DO!! Take ACTION to MANIFEST THAT PROJECT! and most of all, be SUPER ON THE SUPER MOON! YAY! BLESSED BE!

Happy Summer Solstice!

BLESSINGS! It’s SUNRISE at the SUMMER SOLSTICE!!

IMG_0986  IMG_0985 (1)

Happy Summer Solstice! Happy Father’s Day! Happy SUN-Day! Happy Longest Day of the Year!

Be outside! DANCE, SHARE, LOVE and honor the LIGHT we get to experience each and every day. And if you know someone who doesn’t feel it or see light – well, send some their way. Today there should be LIGHT FOR EVERYONE!!

I’m in Palm Springs where the light is just absolutely GORGE every day. It is the desert so the landscapes are generally light, sandy. The San Jacinto Mountains, luminous as the sun rises, thereby bouncing even more majestic light to the entire Coachella Valley below. The mountains are the guardians, the keepers of the magic that stirs well beneath the earth, the water tables rising, falling, flowing underneath, that which we cannot see. The air is HOT.

So much of who we are ~ are like majestic mountains. Our souls, keeping us firm as we station ourselves onto our living Earth. We watch what happens around us, feeling the rumblings underneath our surface, our source spirits, lifting, ebbing, flowing. We reflect the light around us unto others. We catch the snow or the rain and let it fall unto the rivers and streams that we nourish throughout our lives. WE ARE SOURCE, WE ARE LIGHT, WE ARE SPIRIT. WE ARE REFLECTION.

WE ARE FATHER AND MOTHER, even if we physically are not such so to another human being, we are all Mother and Father of the Earth we live upon, ideally, BLESSING it each day, giving THANKS for it each day, and helping to NOURISH it, each moment, watering, tending, gardening and also, yes, we destroy, sometimes with intention, sometimes, we don’t even know we are doing it. Sometimes, we simply look in the other direction and pretend not to see what is really going on.

IMG_0984

Today, nourish your own spirit and soul, giving thanks for your presence on earth. For FERTILITY that this mid-summer time brings. Fertility for NEW IDEAS, for INSPIRATION, for IMAGINATION, for MANIFESTATION, for BABIES, for NEW PLANTS, for FLOWERS so this little hummingbird buzzing next to me will get to enact its joyous purpose, to help pollinate the rest of the environ, here in the gorgeous, living desert. POLLINATE YOUR LIFE TODAY! Have a lovely SUMMER SOLSTICE wherever you are! Blessed Be!!

PS here is news of Summer Solstice at Stonehenge – We were in England at Solstice time and at Stonehenge just two days before in 2010 and it was indeed MAGICAL!
