Celebration!!! Joy does come in the Morning! Just have to know what to drink in

Champagne SunriseIt was an interesting yesterday and last night for that matter! A brimful day, started with a Meetup with souls who love nature as much as I do. One woman actually traveled one hour to start the day with us! Always admired people of determination, venturing into obscure climates and zones of unfamiliarity. This lone thought makes me break out the champagne! Why? It’s a sign of breakthrough, where one dislodges fear and steps into who they were created to be.

HOME 5-4 015Every participant this day reflected their light, their knowing, the reason why they were “present”, each one of them so precious and candid. Sharing their frustrations of a work week, how they knew one another or led to the group, passions for capturing beauty, each one on a sanctified journey.

HOME 5-4 001It got me thinking about the honey bee,  honeybee’s and the secret of colonization. Gosh doesn’t that sound like a great title for a book? Actually my private quest was to capture one in nature today. Even rented a very expensive lens which wasn’t in my budget to purchase.  Was told about a great company to rent from if you find yourself in the same predicament.  Lend you a tool to help your dreams come true! (Exactly like what Heart of Mother Earth meetup is all about) LensProtoGo  check them out! The photo below was captured with a specialty macro lens by Canon.

HOME 5-4 101As I was reflecting on these droplets of promise, thoughts of living authentically in the moment, despite oneself,  had me cracking up inside. It was painfully obvious all I really wanted was to be alone in nature and not just in nature, but in the most general sense of the word, solitary… end of story. Don’t get me wrong, love people, however,  just look at this owl’s face

Barred Owl

EXACTLY how I felt~!~  This Barred Owl’s story was shared with one of the Park Rangers; hit by a car and tragically unable to fly. Someone brought her in where she is being nurtured back to health and eventually to be returned home. Got me thinking how we all need to return to our real nature, despite the casualties personally encountered.

It was before the beginning of our meditation, Mary our group leader shared about Native American teachings and interpretation of animal medicine and the lessons they can impart.  “Gaining understanding from these brother and sisters in the animal kingdom is a healing process and must be approached with humility and intuitiveness”   Ironically the card I chose from her Medicine Card Deck was a tortoise! And look who we discovered on our trek!HOME 5-4 018 It was amazing to me how his shell matched perfectly the surroundings of stone. He let me get up close and then turned around to retreat back into his hole.  The message for me was this; move through pressures, don’t retreat, things will happen in the time and manner best for you. Focus on essentials and trust you have everything you need

Yup, we need to come out of our shell of the world we created and like the Least Bittern, stick our necks out a bit!

Test the waters!

Black-necked Stilt Chick

You just may find out, living is quite irresistible! Especially when you patiently wait in silence for Nature to reveal herself. However,  it usually isn’t until the next day after you “upload” do you necessarily process what has been exchanged.

      Taking time to write me this…..made me smile. Sometimes when you write, you don’t get visual responses…and yet…we write on don’t we?! Sometimes you have someone reach out…genuinely and totally astound you. Yes, sometimes we understand enough to know..its all worth it…every pain, every question, every moment of truth shared every stroke of our finger thoughts … sometimes living can be challenging yet..we choose to love on don’t we?…sometimes…moments like these make you cry
