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! 🙂 ❤

7-16 Lunar Fun!

Yup, our last lunar eclipse for the year. It’s partial, and it’s tonight.
My thoughts on this one…

Well, since this is the other slice of bread to the sandwich that was ‘eclipse season’…

I. am. tired! I have felt pretty drained since the solar eclipse that was on the 2nd. It also seems to be more of a mental-drain than an all-out physical one. I do my best to take-care and pay attention to what my body is saying to me. Some days are better than others.

I would tend to think that a LOT of us are feeling this planetary-cosmic-Universal potpourri of goings-on’s right now! I mean – geesh… eclipses and retrogrades and ramping up towards the Lion’s Gate portal (er… Sirius Day!) 🙂 I am definitely going to take a soak in some Epsom salts.

Cleaning, clearing and releasing will be going on for a while but as long as it IS going on – things will continually/consistently improve. There is no going backwards. I have probably said this before but it is true. Some work is better than no work. Sure, there might be (what feels like) some stagnant times but it is still the process of moving forward. That’s the beauty of trusting and Divine timing… sometimes slow and steady wins the race; whatever ‘race’ you are in for that particular moment/issue/situation.

I love being out on Gaia right now. What I mean by that is – being in the yard, my garden, outside in general. Soaking up the sun and sending it love for the beautiful rays-of-light that powers me up! I feel like I could go to sleep under the sun for days and just… absorb and integrate! Sounds crazy probably – but I have thought about it! 🙂  The thought of sizzling out there does make me NOT want to do that though. So, instead of the sleeping – I do the yard work. I just want to be out – in it!

I am also finding myself doing some cleaning up around here. Just wanting things to be ‘fresh and clean’. I have been neglecting the house this last month and it was starting to show. You know… because I just want to be outside.

So… eclipse, retrogrades, swirling, twirling everything… Cleaning, cleaning, cleaning!

Yup, I would say – the energies are pretty high right now and those that don’t understand are probably the most confused by it all. I remind myself to be patient and be in observation-mode while they go through… whatever it is they need to go through. It’s not up to me to get them to the answer, they need to find their own answer. But I can only hope that I might be able to offer a word or two of a different perspective. When I hear a response of: ‘I never thought of it that way’- then I know that they will now continue on, with their processing, with a new puzzle piece. There’s no judgement, no could-a/should-a’s, no you’re doing it all wrongs… just a different perspective coming from an observation. I think most are needing this kind of love right now. The non-judgmental kind.

It’s hard not to ‘judge’ because we have all been programmed to do so; with each other and mostly ourselves. Man, we’re so hard on ourselves! If we are constantly judging and comparing and self-loathing – then how can we be anything above that for others? I mean, really? It becomes fake. It is fake. We really need to be checking-in with ourselves first. Self-love is the new black. When you really dig deep and start caring for yourself as the one-true-love… it will open your world! It is absolute freedom!

And… because I truly love and respect myself – I will be soaking in an Epsoms salts bath on this amazing full moon partial lunar eclipse evening! I will be aiding my physical body in the removal of… whatever needs to be removed! Clean, clean, clean… right? 🙂

Here’s to moving forward! To going onward and upward! Love yourself so that you can be love, come from love, and share the love!

Summer… Yay!

Happy Summer Solstice!

Stopping in real quick to acknowledge this wonderful portal day!
I will be outside working the earth, this beautiful Gaia, by being in the garden, the yard/the house, and (of course) with the animals! It’s a busy time for me (for us here on our homestead) but I love every minute of it! I do love summer! 🙂

As always – this is a great portal day to be grounded while setting your intentions for your wonderful reality! Bring yourself, attract to you, the awesome reality that you want to be living! Visualize, meditate (not mandatory – but sure does help. Also – visualizing IS a meditation), and actively take steps towards it. These can be small baby steps; and even – take baby steps towards and for the baby step!

Take it easy on yourself and don’t be harsh towards your inner-monologue if you aren’t seeing anything huge manifesting (timing is a Divine-thing). Most of the time it’s the little things. Develop your awareness in all the little things. When you tune in to this – you began to see the synchronicities… then you will develop trust in these. It grows from there! See… what a simple baby step, am-I-Right?? 🙂   I bet you didn’t even realize you were manifesting?

It comes with awareness, tuning in, then trust… You got this!!
Be open to receive the Divine wisdom, the love and the light that already is: you!

Love and blessings! ❤

May

Did I just pass an entire month without writing anything?

I think I did! This month sped by me and here it is… the last day(s). It’s okay though. It’s been a super-busy month and not blogging anything is absolutely forgiven! 🙂 hahaha

It has been a month of getting things going, or done, around here. Many projects along with the balance of a few family outings and enjoying nature – or a cute little coastal town. I feel like the physical labor (of homesteading) has taken up most of my days these last few weeks. And rightfully so. I am trying to get my garden prepped and plants in! The growing season is short here. Some days I feel like its all prep work just in time to pull it all out because we creeped into fall.

Anyway… summing up the month of May: it was good.

I haven’t been noticing anything ascensionly-major, within my earthly realm, to really take notes on. Hahaha… is that even a word? Ascensionly? It is now! 🙂   I know I have been so physically busy outside and then exhausted by the time bedtime rolls around I am either: not noticing or I am noticing – but it seems kind-of normal to me now. It’s not a big deal and I keep carrying on. I would consider that – good integration. I recognize, allow, apply, integrate (maybe not always in that order)… and keep moving on while I am working in my ‘world’. It’s all good, yes, very good.

I have to mention, that this month – I have really enjoyed listening to body healing guided meditations while I am passing-out. I am loving these things. Playing them right off that good ole you-tube. I’m sure there are other ways of accessing these – but that is the route I am currently using. Kindle + you tube app = a wonderful meditation while falling asleep!

There’s a good reason why I am choosing the body healing. I need it! On all levels. From actual physical ailments (of injuries), current hormonal fluctuations (perimenopause), to the daily beatings I am giving my physical body right now (gardening/shoveling/digging/lifting/hauling/work-work-work). I would recommend these to anyone looking for some calming healing body talk and re-assurance. I do feel like I am getting some good sleep. And we all know that good sleep promotes better all-over-wellness.

There’s an array of people offering some great meditations on that platform. And I am thankful/grateful for all those that are offering their amazing talents (for free). Thank you to those of you doing this. Love and gratitude goes out to you! There’s more than body healing, the variety is practically endless. Need a calming or an enlightening meditation? Click on over to the you tube and listen to something. Meditation isn’t just that stereo-typical yoga-pose and absolute silence. It has evolved and it can be guided. If you just want music with no one guiding you … there is that too. Binaural beats, solfeggio, higher frequency tones, shamanic, and even angelic – it’s like being a kid in a candy store! So fun!

My current faves are: Unlock Your Life, Meditations by Rasa, Steve Nobel (The Soul Matrix), Progressive Hypnosis, Om Shaanti… just to name a few. There really is something for everyone!
Get your ear-buds on and happy meditating everyone!

Chickies!

Is it spring yet?

Ummm….

For us, the farm-life ‘season’ (or year) doesn’t seem to really kick-off until our baby chicks arrive. There’s just something about these little babies that symbolize the start of the ‘new year’ for us. Maybe it’s because we only see miles and miles of white snow for months and these baby chicks are the spring-time ray of sunshine! Well… whatever it is…

Snow or not… here they come! And you gotta be ready for them.

So, this is what we are doing this week. Prepping for and then receiving our bundles of puff-ball joy.
Our baby chickens arrived this morning and this initiates the starting our year of farmin’. Was that redundant? Initiates the starting?? I must really mean it then! What’s funny is that I keep writing and leave it! Ha! 🙂

Anyway … Since we still have a couple feet of snow hanging around – these little guys will be sheltered inside until two things happen… one: they are big enough and have some feathers (or starting of feathers), and two: the snow has melted. At least enough to either provide bare ground or close enough so that we can provide some clear ground for them. I’m guessing it’s going to be a couple of weeks.

Keeping these little ones warm, dry, free from dangers, well hydrated and fed; along with clean bedding, is what you want to aim for while they grow. I am also always hoping that they all make it too. There is always that little ‘percentage’ of possible loss/mortality rate. I pray for healthy, strong, vital birds!
The brood-box is set up pretty nice and these guys have plenty of space while at the same time – warmth, food and water. It’s probably considered primo-real estate (in the chickie world).

Getting the babies nestled in their new digs can start the chain-of-events for all the other things we need to start doing in preparation for the year. Coops and repairs, building what can be built in the garage (while snow melts), and seedlings in the windows. Until we come out of this snow-fest (it did snow just 2 days ago… so, spring is not quite here yet) it will be indoorsy projects.

🙂
