Yesterday afternoon I arrived at a beautiful property that my friends had rented for the weekend.
It is their wedding anniversary and to celebrate they had arranged a gathering in this beautiful property to renew their vows in a handfasting ceremony.
As the guests started arriving the joyous energy of the afternoon increased and there was laughter in the air and smiles all around.
With the circle prepared for the Handfasting and everyone inside getting themselves ready I took the opportunity to sneak out to take a walk around the property.
I have been so busy lately working, researching, planning and making changes within my space (and a bit of procrastination and Netflix thrown in there) that I've not been to the beach or taking my usual time out so it was a beautiful to have my moment of connection with the energy of the property
As I wandered past the beautiful ritual space that had been created, and walked through the gate my energy dropped, sinking deep into the earth, weaving with the roots of the large trees that surrounded me.
Looking around, listening to the sound of the wind moving through the branches of the trees above me, I felt energy surrounding me.
I felt those that dwell between the worlds peering through the thinning veils as we approach Beltane.
I stood there listening out for guidance from them.
Paying attention to the thoughts that are fluttering through my mind knowing that within them are messages.
Keeping myself within the flow and with each breath strengthening my connection.
I receive fleeting glimpses of what will come.
I feel the energy that is on it's way.
The newness that is coming with the changes that I am making within my space.
I know that these messages I have been receiving have been presented at the perfect time.
The serendipitous moments.
As I have mentioned in a previous post, life doesn't happen to us, it is happening for us and these moments I find myself in are all for a reason.
To remind me that I am on my path of discovery.
That moments within the moments are special.
That staying within the flow is what is needed to keep on track.
That making the time to find the quiet moments to connect with energy.
We are approaching Beltane, where the veils are thinning and it is easier to connect and receive guidance.
So take the time to connect.
Make the time to sit within nature and feel the energy.
Find your flow and move with it.
Let it take you where you need to be.
Beltane Blessings to you all
When the Moon is Full I feel its pull
I feel the energy from deep within
I feel my energy shift
As I walk to the oceans edge I call to the sea
From the depths of the sea
Come to me
Feeling my feet sink within the sand
Feeling the water surrounding me
Watching the moon rise above the horizon
The colour painting the sky
Drumming in the distance
Fire on the shore
The wyld stirring within
The elements surrounding me
I am reminded of simplicity
Things become clear as I cleanse within the ocean
I walk to the fire and listen to the drumming
Closing my eyes moving to the rhythm
Being in the flow
Being present within the moment
Feelings stirring within
A return to nature
A return to the Wyld
Freedom within the light of the moon
What have I been up to?
Well, moving out of the Winter slumber I can feel the cocoon that I had wrapped myself in slowly unravelling.
I have found myself remembering
Remembering that things always happen for a reason
Remembering to be in the flow of life
Remembering that I can choose how I live this life
And I participate in the flow and manifestations
I can work my magick
It is serendipitous how people and events come into our lives.
I have a house guest that has spent a few months staying in my home. He is my sons friend, in his early 20's, who needed a positive environment to breathe and move towards his future.
Being within my home, it is certainly obvious that I am spiritual. My home is my sanctuary and is very bohemian, filled with bits and bobs, beautiful rich colours smelling of incense and full of energy.
Of course my home is where he ends up laying his head.
Recently, after small conversations of thought forms, sacred geometry etc, I found myself in deep and interesting conversations with him about life, spirituality, mother earth, magick and much much more sharing YouTube recommendations, articles, authors etc.
These conversations could not have come at a more perfect time.
After what I realise to be an isolated and I won't say sad, but reflective winter, I feel that with the sun I am now growing in strength and brightness.
Having these deep conversations has awakened thoughts within me that have been held within for so long.
It inspired me that now is time to get out and about.
To create the experiences I have been longing for over the winter months
Then out of the blue a sista messaged me about going to a little beach festival
Of course I said, Yes lets go
On our way (a 3 hour road trip) we immediately delve deeper into our spirit
I shared my recent conversations and revelations and, of course, she shared my thoughts
Arriving at the Festival we walked around, still talking, and looking at the market stalls. We spent time sitting on the beach, walking in the shallows and still, more talking.
We sat and listened to some music
We walked through approx a hundred Kombi's parked for all the see, ready for the Kombi parade. This within itself pulled at my Wyld strings. My inner wyldling excited, wanting a van of my own to create a home on wheels to get out, adventure and explore.
As the sun fell we found a spot on the earth, a large grassed sports field.
We were silent
As I laid back I looked up to the moon
A perfect ring around it
I could not capture the beauty of it in a photo, it was for our eyes only
Then the count down began and fireworks ensued
It was beautiful
Absolutely beautiful and listening to the children laughing in excitement
Made my night!
We then jumped back into the car and made the 3 hour drive home still talking about our recent experiences, our journey, gratitude and much much more.
A full day of adventure with a sista delving into our spirit
The beginning of many journeys
Now..... I feel more connected to the flow
I feel more aware of my surroundings and peoples energy
I am noticing more messages from the Ancestors
I feel inspired to delve deeper into the unknown
To expand my knowledge
Even thinking it may be time to finish my degree in Herbal Medicine.
Let's see how it flows
