Homesteading, Holistic and Heaven

We create our own heaven; it is here… on earth.

With this knowing – I, along with my hubs, have been working towards this ever-so-enchanted dream. It is the desire to build up our little slice of heaven, our homestead, to what we see as sustainable (living) suitable for us. Since this actually varies from person to person (we all have different needs/likes), not all homesteads are going to be the same; however, the core of what they are will most likely be very similar. To be as self-sufficient as possible while working WITH mother earth. There’s various levels of this: from complete off-grid living to making your city-living back yard as farmy as possible! You might be able to have a couple chickens, for example, but NO rooster! 🙂 Hubs and I fall somewhere in-between these two. Mountain living with acreage but currently relying on the power company to provide lights! Maybe one day we’ll be completely solar and wind! I would LOVE that!

We’ve always wanted to have something like this (this workable land) and when it starts to become a reality, it is exciting! We’ve both been country, we’ve both been city. We love where we are NOW and being/living… in the now. I am not going to say that we have ‘settled’ into our surroundings and find ourselves here for the long-haul, because I also know that things change. As I keep walking on the path to my future-self this life here might be… well, something different down the road.

I am okay with that. I know that through the growth and evolution of ones-self – opportunities will arise that have potential to alter your path. Once this is accepted within your heart-space, the possible unknown twists and turns along your life-path are (hopefully) not fought with resistance. It’s why I am fine with the possibility of moving, selling, or being somewhere different. I trust. I also know that my heart will not steer me wrong.

There is a connection that you can continually tap into for your highest Divine guidance. It’s more than just meditation, it also consists of that immediate intuition and that knowing of truth. It can take some practice. Learning your own rhythm and how things feel/come to you is unique, a skill worth developing! From a holistic standpoint – it’s where we are all heading. We as humans (awakening) are going back to our Divine-nature, the core of who we are! We are untethering from the 3D closed-off (and boxed-in) matrix and beginning to learn and understand that we are more than this. Connection, trust, and the innate knowing of our truth and our true soul-path. Not only are we becoming one with ourselves; we are also becoming a higher consciousness collective. It is a holistic-thing because it’s being complete on all levels: individually and globally with Source.

Holistic, by definition is: relating to or concerned with wholes or with complete systems rather than with the analysis of, treatment of, or dissection into parts. Basically, nothing is separate. And when you really begin to tap into the Infinite Intelligence, the Universe, the Divine – one can begin to learn how connected everything really is. Even beyond what our monkey-mind can comprehend! This is when turning inward to your heart-space while be required. For a lot of us – this will take practice as well. We’ve been trained/programmed not to for so long.

I sometimes giggle at the fact that even though I went through some courses to become certified in holistic coaching… no one should have to get certified in this. Maybe the coaching construct, sure… but living holistically? It should be the natural go-to for our overall health, wellness, and life. This is our innate way to BE! Holism should be the consciousness we reside in. Sadly, it is not. It has been chipped-away from us over time, through various ways, with each generation more gets ‘lost’, covered-up, buried, and distracted from, etc. It is nice to see that this is beginning to change and will eventually be coming to an end. We are waking up to: no more and enough all-ready! I guess when things get bleak people really do start seeing the light! 🙂

Getting back to nature on many levels is trending. I don’t know if that’s the right word. Trends fluctuate, come and go; getting back to ‘natural’ is here forever! It’s the new-earth way of living. Living free and wonderfully while teaming up with Gaia – co-creating with her. No more of all this industrial, chemical, toxic, burdened stuff that has been going on (far too long). Sick and tired of being sick and tired? Take a closer look at everything in, on, and around you! Toxic overload is a real thing and it is rampant right now. From electronics and wireless bouncing around and through you all day every day – to your: make-up, shampoo, lotion, dryer sheets, food… and on and on. Geesh, this sounds like ‘hell’!

Making your heaven now is easy. It starts with that one step, that one action. Sounds all cliché and stuff – but it’s true. Starting at the personal level and expanding out to the physicality around you. Easing into a wonderful life is very do-able.

Personally – start with moments-of-silence with yourself. If you have never meditated or done anything like this (for yourself) – start simple. Take a quiet-minute and just ask your higher-self: what do I need to know today for my highest good? And start your practice there. You might not get anything back, it might take a while. Be patient (that right there is a practice for many)! When you continue to practice this every day for even a minute or two. You are developing the practice which will eventually grow. You are developing the connection with higher guidance. Just like any other thing you want to become a part of your life; making the habit and then letting it become part of your lifestyle.

Kind of like working-out/exercise. Building this habit can take some time, a change of mind-set, and consistency – so that it becomes a part of you, a thing you do. And gradually you will want to! You will want to do more, maybe add in some different, even up-level! You will reach that point when you will miss it when you don’t do it. Meditation will become the same level of daily habit (if not more so) than getting your (physical) workout in. You might even find you do them both at the same time! I usually will have epiphanies while in the middle of my work-out! It’s a beautiful thing!

As for an example of your physical-reality and life around you: switch one thing out. Another thing you can do gradually. You don’t have to go hard-core on this. No need to gut your home and bring in all clean, green, sustainable and organic. Unless you want to! This can be eased into. Take one of your soapy-type products and switch it out for something clean n’ earthly-green! Shop local, we hear that one a lot. But there’s shopping local, and then there’s shopping local! Not your local… Wal Mart. Shop your local… farmer’s market. Maybe quit sleeping with your cell phone. Put it to bed too. And in a different room. Do you really need that thing next to your cranium? But it’s my alarm. I never slept with my alarm clock next to my face growing up… it was away from me. And that’s when they were fairly harmless. I find it interesting how people discredit the cell phone as a disrupter-of-health and think they are harmless. Sorry folks, those little-guys are right-up-there grouped with some of the worst. We didn’t have classes about cell phones. They just started barreling into our lives, immediately taking over, consuming us! Eeek! It is the joke about the ‘zombie-apocalypse’ – people constantly on cell phones! Sadly – it’s so true though. Take practice in learning how to be in charge of it – instead of it controlling you. There’s lots of simple clean-ups that really won’t hurt to do. Choose one that is right for you. These little things will begin to add-up and in a good way!

I’ve been in a clean-up mode for a couple of years. Switching things out, learning how-to and making my own (products/foods, etc). I will even start out with that semi-homemade concept. Start the dilution of a ‘normal’ product and mix it up with home-made/organic/pure-clean stuff. Over time the dilution will end up being completely clean n’ green! Give yourself permission to change things out gradually. It’s okay – as long as you are working towards that. Baby steps first, then stick with what you just changed. There is a tendency to revert back. Try not to. I know that stuff-happens, maybe give it another go later. Keep working at it. We really are: breaking an addiction.

My slice of heaven and your slice are two different pieces of pie. I bet they have a lot of things in common though. Maybe free of toxic overload and chemical burden, clean fresh air and water, healthy body, energy, abundance, love, and being at peace with ourselves and peace for Gaia. This sounds good to me. As we work individually it is spreading globally. Keep up the good work everyone… because with practice – living clean will be the lifestyle, being in connection (with our higher-self) will be constant, and Gaia will reward us with Heaven! If ‘Home is where you make it’, so is heaven!

This is an awesome time to start bringing in your new awesome life! We are in the portal of closing up shop in one area (good-bye decade) and opening up to our better-selves (hello 2020). This 12-12-12 (3-3-3) portal will be working with us ‘til the 12-21 timeframe. The energies involved will linger but the intensity of the open portal and gateway will be amplifying all that you are desiring – from your true heart; your heart-space. Set your intentions for your amazing life for the new decade approaching! I’m pretty excited about it! Are you?! I hope so!

BE kind, BE love, BE true! Happy 12-12+ energies! Enjoy! 🙂 ❤

That was quick!

September… is over already?!
What? Didn’t it just start last week?

I know that by January I will be saying things of: man, could this month drag-on any slower? It is speedy the last half of the year; at least for me, it seems. Everything is cumulating from August ‘til Christmas! Keeping things in a busy state.

It’s all good though and I have nothing but gratitude and love for all the blessings – all the time!

It also seems that September was full of energy shifts. Shifts that are helping those that are in the awakened state propel a little bit more forward. That lovely nudge to help further you up your timeline. Depending on where each individual is at, the energy (received) was just-right in helping do what needed to be done. Since no two people are at any identical level – the energies, frequencies, and all the Divine goodness that we are receiving is received appropriately (individually/for what you can handle). If this makes sense.

What I have been noticing, personally, is that I need to get back into being in my body. To be here, on Gaia. I’ve been floaty and flighty this summer. I will admit – there have been many times where I am completely checked-out and probably looked glazed-over (to others). I giggled about this … because you would think for someone who is out on Gaia every day (garden and farmin’) that I would be… really grounded.

Yup, you can be out workin’ the land physically but not being mentally there. I suppose this is true for many things one could be doing physically while their mind is out gallivanting the Universe and wanting to be somewhere else. More often than not, I do catch myself in the ungrounded states. There is probably various differences of being floaty. I know that mine can be way more than just a mind-wander or day-dream… I know I can be totally checked-out and off Gaia!

Oh the fun! So… this month, September, I was bringing back more grounding meditations for myself. Spending some time tuning in, being with my core, my vessel, my ‘reality’. I’m only guessing here – but I think that as we evolve and some of us are stepping onto our higher-self timelines and learning how to navigate beyond the 3D – there is a lot of us floaty-peeps out there! We are in a different kind of ‘dazed and confused’ state; not a ‘70s kind but a new earth kind! 🙂

So, to take note on myself and get back into my practice of being here and there at the appropriate times… I have set my intentions for October. To keep being here (at least during the day! hahaha) 🙂 and continue allowing integrations of love and light, new energies and frequencies. Once you agree and allow to start doing this (integrating energies) – there really is no stopping! It becomes – you! I will also be doing more grounding on the new earth grid (Gaia) while BEing in joy and happiness – working towards manifesting my higher-self timeline.

It sounds like a good time! 🙂 We are here to have fun after all! Stay in the joy, love, and beauty!

Good August

Where did August go?

I think this seems to be a trending question for every month passing by these last couple of years. I may have already stated this fact before, but…it’s true – time is speeding up and in all seriousness: where did August go? 🙂

Outside. That’s where mine went. Out on the property/homestead doing this-n-that’s.

Having a garden showing you every day how hard your work is paying off is such a lovely, fruitful, reminder. Since our garden is a work-in-progress (aren’t they all though?) we have been excited to see veggies and fruits starting to come out of it. Last year was a struggle but it was also the first year for this newly built veggie arena. Yes, the pickin’s were slim; but so grateful for how far we came in one short season.

I am already excited for next year’s gardening! By then we will have already added more dirt and compost. We will be building up the soils, building up the beds, making these growing areas so homey and wonderful that the plants will want to stay forever! 🙂 hahaha!

Yes, gardening is one of my Zen’s. Love it!

August has come and gone but it was a good one, very productive! Was able to get in some fun travels and hang out with our kiddos too! Thanks August! You were wonderful! As summer begins to close-up shop – it’s on to my favorite season: fall! I’m looking forward to it, this year-autumn will be amazing! I feel it, I know it, and I will visualize it for my reality! I should say: I AM visualizing it to be my reality!

And so it is! 🙂 ❤

The 8-8 of 2019

I will be spending the wonderful Lions Gate portal day, and the weekend that follows – out camping and truly being in nature. Super-excited to be playing, enjoying, un-plugging, grounding-in, sleeping on… Gaia for this particular weekend. Icing on the cake: I’m with my hubby and our amazing kiddos! ❤

I’ll be staring up at the night skies and enjoying all the beautiful stars/starlight! I will be allowing and directing-in all them energies, frequencies, codes and activations for the next level fun!

I hope everyone has the opportunity to spend their gate-way time out in nature too; in some form or another. Happy Sirian/Sirius day, happy Lions Gateway.

Love and blessings!

*Update*

Not much star gazing while camping – we had a rainy weekend. BUT the thunder and lightening storm (that came through Friday night) was really cool (even though it soaked us!). Sleeping/laying on the ground while lightening struck near by was… actually kind-of cool. I could feel these (shock) waves run through my body. The energy was, what I can only describe as, cleansing. I felt like I was having ‘stuff’ zapped right out and off of me. That – hard to describe – crack and snap that you can feel in your body when the ground is vibrating… I was feeling that.

I don’t recommend being out in any lightening storm. But we were there, camping in it. If it got too close for comfort – we were heading for our truck. But we stayed safe. I doubled-up ‘security’ by asking AA Michael to watch over us.

I felt and utilized this shock-therapy 🙂 to remove anything that no longer serves, anything that isn’t mine, what’s not for my greatest and highest good… I worked with it. The next morning – I felt lighter! I felt pretty good. That’s saying a lot when the sleeping wasn’t very good to begin with!

Yup, I went into this camp trip with some ideas of what I thought I wanted to do (or what was going to happen)! The Universe had a different plan… I went with it and had an adaptation of intention(s). Unique, and will probably never be duplicated again! It was rare, it was interesting, it was cleansing, and it was an experience! ❤ 🙂

Grounding!

I had a moment of not being in my body today and I noticed how weird it was. I noticed how weird it was that I also noticed (how weird it was)!

I thought I was doing my normal grocery shopping task… and being: normal (or 3D, if you will). 🙂

To begin with, I will mention that doing the actual shopping – it seemed like I was kind-of mentally there but not really. All well and good, I guess. But when it came time to check out and pay for all my groceries… I suddenly felt really weird, I felt floaty, I felt wavy… I felt like I was observing myself stumbling along with trying to pay. I even recognized that ‘I feel like I am watching myself starring at this wallet’. Hmmm… weird. I feel a little… weird.

I watched myself look through a wallet that seemed suddenly foreign to me. What am I paying with? What are all these cards? Is this even my wallet? Yes… yes it is.

I found my card. I then had a brief moment with the terminal… WTF? What is with all the brain farts? After paying I head out to the car. I had another floaty-moment and stared at my car while I was trying to comprehend the unlocking of it. I suddenly found myself mentally walking through the steps, visualizing in my mind, of getting into my car! I then realized… shit… I am so-not-grounded! I need to ground, and do it now!

I might have even blurted this out loud in the parking lot… I can’t remember. I just knew I was going to ground into Gaia right then and there! I gave myself a brief moment of standing between my open car door and the cart… feeling Gaia under my feet and sending my grounding cord down. Seconds later I was telling myself to grab each bag, one at a time. Feel the weight, notice them, and arrange them in the car… I was focusing-in on the moment… the ‘now’.

This was good. I was feeling ‘better’ by the time I was all done and back in the driver seat! By ‘better’ I am meaning – like I was ‘all there’ again and felt like I was back on earth! The drive home even felt different. Which tells me I left the house totally floaty and ungrounded. Accidents happen when you aren’t grounded.

This was definitely a reminder that I need to ground more frequently than I used to; and probably should be making it a daily conscious effort! The Gaia energies and 5D transformation(s) have had me all over the place lately. Things are speeding up and if my 5D DNA is taking me there/with her… I need to make it a point to practice grounding-in way more than I did… even just a few months ago!

I know I am living in a duality-space right now. This place and space between worlds is becoming something I can sense (and pick up on) a little faster with each time I find myself in the ‘between’. I am just guessing that those of us in ascension-mode probably have some of the same things happening but also very different!

I might even be in that bubble where it used to be: ground so you can meditate and ‘take yourself there’ while making sure you are connecting to Gaia. But lately I feel there is a flipping going on where it’s: ground because you are already ‘there’, regardless of meditation(s), and you still need to keep your connection to Gaia! I don’t know if that makes sense. It’s probably going to get harder and harder to describe what is going on/happening – as I keep upgrading and going 5D. Stuff can get indescribable.

There is probably no words in our planetary-human-vocabulary that can even come close to the Divine energies one can feel, sense, experience, cognize, integrate and assimilate.

So… on that note… I guess this is a heads up that my future journaling’s will probably consist of made-up words and concepts in order to try to describe the sensations, energies, physical shifting, and awareness-es. 🙂
