Walking In Grace

When we realize that every thing on Earth is Sacred, we will walk in grace with the web of life. The Earth will heal.

My love of Plant Medicine is a gift to me, to others, and to the Earth. When one sees the deep energy in plants, we naturally have a reverence for the plants and the home of these amazing healing plants. Keeping the Earth whole, clean, and safe for healing plant growth keeps the Earth whole for all of us. When we honor plant-based medicine, we live differently on this planet.

I use the Earth Pathways Diary to keep track of my year, appointments, etc. It is a beautiful calendar diary with Earth based art work, poetry, readings, etc. Every week there is something new art, creativity, poetry, etc.

I decided to submit a poem for the 2020 Edition and this is what came out of my head:

I wish I knew who created this beautiful art work. I would credit them.

 

 

Walk with Grace upon this Beautiful Planet.

Life Can Be Fragile

Life Can Be Fragile. Life Can be Fleeting. Embrace every moment for its Sacred & Magical (are they not the same?) Energy.

On June 12th, 2018 I filmed this very young Fawn, still slightly wobbly on its legs, as it walked along the opposite side of my swim quarry.

 

Yesterday, July 3rd, I lifted this same beautiful being’s body from the side of the road. I carried her into the woods to lay her to rest under a Great White Pine, a Tree of Life. As I walked; fawn in my arms, tears running down my face, and my heart broken, Momma Deer was right close by in the woods. My heart broke open even bigger knowing there she still was, close by her baby’s body.

I share this with much positivity as bizarre as that sounds. I am listening to the messages of the Universe. The past month has held much wisdom in lessons for me as I have been immersed in some Earth shattering wake up calls.

  • Truly live and breathe in every moment’s bliss or sorrow.
  • Live the life I want. Start celebrating my bucket list now.
  • Who knows what tomorrow will bring or if I will even have a tomorrow.
  • Hug

Last night, as I sat next to the campfire with my two sons and their rowdy teen friends – time was closing in on midnight and I wanted to be in bed 2 hours ago so I could be up to witness the beauty of the Sunrise – I took several deep breaths {in pink, out blue, surround myself in yellow  wink  }.  I am ecstatically grateful my boys, 16 & 19, want to hang with their Mom, Dad, and Nancy by the campfire AND so do their friends. We tell stories, ask questions of the newcomers to get to know them, and laugh until we go to bed exhausted and reeking of campfire. Did I mention the S’mores and endless roasted marshmallows? I will catch the Sunrise another day… maybe on those mornings when I am wishing my kids were still here to sit around the campfire with me/us.

Embrace life. Live fully in every moment. Sit by the campfire until the embers and playful communications cease.

Cozying Up to the Collective Soul

Over the couse of my lifetime I had been taught to look to a higher power for strength; pray to God for needs. This cultural teaching puts some unknown power at the center of everything: this all knowing, all powerful, male figure.

Intuitively, I always knew there was something that just was not right with this. As a kid, we trust and believe the adults around us know more than we do.

I have always been enamoured with the natural world and could feel its amazing power and energy. Everything living and things we think of as inanimate (soil, rocks, water, mountains)  are infused with amazing, vibrational energy.  There is universal wisdom, waiting to teach and share with you, in everything.

As I grew over the years and decades of my life, I have come back to what we intuitively know as humans: the divine lies within each of us and within everything. Spirit, life force energy, the Collective Soul is a part of every being and every thing on this planet including the planet as a whole.

When we honor the divine in everyone and everything, Namaste-Blessed Be-Mitakuye Oyasin, we live life from a space of gentle peacefulness, wonder, and gratitude for everything.
