Discovering your purpose in Nature, communicating with trees and the Elements

planes of consciousness

I am feeling dizzy and sensing being called into the woods. I am also drawn to reading some spiritual text, particularly on planes of consciousness. I just read the latest blog from Teal Swan and I cried. You can read it HERE. It touched me, as her writing is very similar to mine, I find, and the way she describes her experiences in different places resonate with how I experience places. Here are my blog posts on places I visited and spiritual experiences. (Isle of Skye and Snowdonia, Wales). Teal has such a ‘flow’ throughout, the flow that I am attracted to strongly. So, I am going to the woods, to commune with the trees and join in embrace. I feel dizzy, ‘spaced out’ feeling and what I feel is there is a reason and purpose to the feeling, it is not just feeling dizzy. Something is trying to put me to sleep almost it feels, there is veil just above my brow, which is hanging a bit too heavy.

Message from the woods

I left the house with a clear quartz in one pocket and my phone in another to be used as a camera, as I never know what I may encounter on my narrative walks. I call them ‘narratives’, as there is always a story, a message, a purpose that comes to me when I am out in my woods and often I write afterwards. Today is such a day.

I still feel dizzy and as I approach the woods I inhale deeply and oh, it is so good to be out. This morning I pulled a card, which said – go outside… Here I am walking towards my usual entrance point, but what I find is a blockage, you can see on the picture.

blocked entrance

I am immediately diverted from entering the woods my usual way and I continue forward. The next entrance I encounter is a clear opening into something I am about to find out. It is a gateway.

I turn right instinctively and from that point decide consciously I am going to walk wherever the sense takes me. I walk through the thick greenness of the woods, it is peaceful and so fresh here. I come to a clearing, which looks unusual and I know this is where that something is, yet I am not ready, I continue walking intuitively and see my guardian tree at a distance. I thought about ‘him’ recently when finding myself struggling with lack of ‘male’ energy within, lack of Fire. I remember turning right a minute ago and it makes sense again, as not only the right side represents expressive nature of the male, but I was also meant to see ‘him’. That tree is a representative of a male parent to me, it is old and wise, holding and understanding. One glimpse of ‘him’ and I know what he is saying. He affirms my energy available to me whenever I need to tap into it. I bow with thanks and turn back into the woods. Read More

How things can fall into place

Looking for a new perspective, for a way to move forward, for a way out…

walk

Things can fall into place in many different ways:

  • through being patient
  • through energies aligning fully with your vibration of need and desire
  • through creating an opening for something new to come it
  • through observing synchronicities daily
  • through staying peaceful within yourself and trusting that all is the way it should be
  • through clearing old clutter and releasing what no longer needed
  • through the dark night of the soul, which, once passed creates a new environment
  • through prayer and meditation with pure heart and intent on moving forward
  • through insights whether they come in dreams or another healing space, like therapy
  • through healing old patterns and addressing suppressed emotions and wounds
  • through being honest with your emotions
  • through facing shadow side head on with acceptance and compassion
  • through embracing and comforting your inner-child
  • through speaking the truth of the heart
  • Walking in nature. Simple, yes I know, oh so powerful and often all that is needed

Stonehenge experience 2015

IMG_6002 stonehenge

I am a bit late with this post, but couldn’t not share it, so here it is.

This year was the first time I visited the sacred site of Stonehenge. First I visited with my boys and it had a profound effect on me to the extent I couldn’t stay for too long due to becoming very emotional and deeply touched.

I felt like I was coming home. It was so deeply touching I held my breath and was transported into the core of nature, Earth, the sacred place of ancestors and knowing within me it was overwhelming, but this reaction precisely confirmed that my heart and soul belongs here, in this land of pure beauty and natural deliciousness.

My second visit was with my beloved during Summer Solstice, mid-summer day of Litha. I was overjoyed to come back and my experience was very different from the first time in terms of my emotions expanded into a mixture of joy, connectedness to spirits and people around me, to the light and darkness also.

The stones vibrate and the energy is very clear and constant. I felt almost electricity like currents running through me. It is not uncomfortable, but it is quite ‘shaking’, as if you are being recharged to the very core. When I touched or stood against a stone I felt as one with it, it swallows you up into its magnetic field and the energy is transmitted throughout the body in a very felt sense. You feel it strongly. It feels pure and vibrant. It is also very beautiful in a way it feels nourishing, soothing as if they say ‘don’t fear yourself, you are cherished’. What I saw a lot around the stones was a colour purple. It was everywhere and the energy when touching stones has that colour, it had for me. utterly beautiful.

Inside the circle the energy is pure beauty and the air is very different that to the outside. I felt like coming into a vault through an invisible door whichever way you come into a circle and there the air just hits you, the energy of purity spreads all around you. One can’t help but smile and the feeling of happiness instantly injected into you. You just feel like you want to dance and sing and hug the Earth like never before. It feels like love and it is everywhere in people’s faces, in friendly nods and touches and everything sort of flows in this bubble of magic and beauty.

Beating of the drums within the drum circle is very soothing, and pleasing to the ear and the body. This repetitive sound improvising and flowing up in the summer air joining all in mutual delight could not escape anyone. My husband was very engrossed in that experience and touched by what effect it had on him. He sat still listening to drumming for a long time. We both now considering getting drums. Delicious food for your spirit aligning all with the basic instinctual primal energy of a drum beat. Just wonderful.

The sunrise experience was delightful and the Sun appeared very slowly teasing and smiling at us all from behind the tress. It was taking its time and anticipation spread across the land. It was one of the most welcoming and fresh experiences, again rejuvenating to the soul. Another moment of pure beauty and joy in the heart.

Being surrounded by souls aligned with your own is such a deeply touching experience. It is unique and special as not often you are within a circle of energies perfectly understanding and accepting of your own vibration and purpose. There is something deeply trusting and comforting in that.

So, you are knowing of your own power and belonging to the Earth, come here. If you love time-travelling with other Shamans of the world and would like feel the deep connection with the pagan community, come to this sacred, immortal site. You will not be disappointed.

Lammas Full Moon magic 2015

What is Magic?

It is a state of being when one is in alignment with the universal energies and able to focus their intention on bringing the energies together to manifest what is needed and desired. It is manipulation of energies and the ability to direct its flow in a direction and form that will bring a need or a desire to fruition.

Today we are celebrating Lammas 2015, the very first harvest festival of the year when Celtic God Lugh is present in its power of creativity, skill and talent. Today we are reflecting upon our results and looking back at the seeds that we had sown back in spring. Today we see the harvest of our labour, as it is in nature, so it is within us. We went through a cycle of birth and death and transformation again and again to get to this point when our labour is rewarded with fruits of imagination, intent and devotion to the path, craft, job, vocation, family, etc. It is gathering together in the moment of truth, here it is, we are here in this moment to witness what IS in front of us and make a decision on the direction forward.

Our allotment has been giving us gifts for the last couple of month and today, as I walk along the vegetable beds I smell maturity, nourishing scent of soil and a call to dig dipper into the Earth to bring up yet more gifts laying beneath. I dig up some carrots and what a satisfaction, as I pull them out one by one with anticipation and joy no knowing the exact shape, size or colour. In parallel with our own inner intentions when we set them we aim to achieve what we desired yet there is a state of unknowing that we have to be with, always, and it is beautiful, that feeling of anticipation of not knowing what is to come, what is going to manifest exactly. That is magic.

Moon cycles are important aspect in magic and each cycle corresponds to a particular phase in our reality and what we wish to manifest.

With the New/Dark Moon we plant seeds within our reality, our psyche wishing to see results manifesting all the way up to the Full Moon.

When the Moon is waxing we look to bring things IN, to bring IN more of what we desire.

At Full Moon, many spells will work great looking to maximise whatever you desire or to confirm something. Abundance, Success, Peace and Love spells will power up during magic working at Full Moon.

When the Moon is waning we release, let go of anything that no longer is serving us on our path towards wholeness.

I have a new e-guide coming up soon, which focuses on working with candles and oils in accordance with Moon cycles. It is a simple and beautiful way to work magic, which anyone will find easy enough to understand, digest and work with.

Lammas Blue Full Moon ritual and spell (31/1 August 2015)

I love performing Fire spells during Full Moon. Fire is such an active, dynamic, passionate and alive element, in which one can feel the energies of propelling things forward, burning away anything that stands in the way with an aim to clear the path for more beautiful things to come into our reality.

I did a Sigil spell this Full Moon. The energy was very concentrated and potent during this calm, mild and clear summer night. I sat outside with my Sigil rolled up ready for the burning ceremony in front of my cauldron. I felt great, energised and gazing into the silvery disc of the Lady Moon, I inhaled her deeply and exhaled any residue, which had no part in my being anymore.

I lit a red candle and placed my sigil in the flames focusing on the desire, wish, need, which was within the sigil and playing with the Fire through my eyes and hands I went deeply into the magic of working the energy. It danced and changed, increased and decreased in its intensity, faces came up in the wax and the flames, as well as ashes of the paper burnt. Mesmerising and deeply knowing feeling enveloped my senses as I sat on the grass watching the Fire burn. Beautiful!

I hope you all enjoyed the magical time of Lammas and the Blue Full Moon this year and manifested an open-heart to all the wonderful things that are yet to come, as the Earth turns its wheel taking us on many more discoveries, beautiful manifestations and joyous experiences.

Much love & Many Blessings!

Isle of Skye, Highlands, Scotland – the land of consciousness expansion

11755485_10153476913146873_8706851044142032030_n11750620_594717030671528_542836626588745987_n

My process of diving deep, my journey through dreams and conscious expansion and alchemical transformation took place here this year, on the Isle of Skye, Scotland.

The land lies still in the deep knowing of its majesty. It is rough, wise, ragged, stunningly beautiful, wild, unapologetically powerful, mystical and one with the Universe, one that is a direct reflection of the source consciousness. It is the Universe itself – glorious land, sea, mountains with sky everywhere hanging very low across the island. It knows deeply, it presents openly, it behaves in ways we get inspired by, freely, flowing, expressing all that one needs to know and expressing in the moment.

The land has this eternal quality to it. Apart from the fact that it is very old and it has seen so much in its existence, it gives an impression of being always and forever present in its vibrancy and such peace. If one is to settle on this land, one is to submit, to merge with it, to flow with its scenery and landscape and vow to become as one. It is a true commitment to its own expansion and liberty.

This was like nothing I experienced before. For a few days I felt very uncontained, confused and a bit lost. My dreams threw me into a spiral of emotional and mental turmoil on the very first night here. It was fierce as if I was thrown into my own potential and was shown things I didn’t yet know about myself and it was huge. I was unprepared. The land does not wait for anyone, one has to be brave, open-hearted and present. That was the first lesson I understood within a day or two. Once I understood the purpose of the powerful upgrades that started coming in and realised there was more to come my heart literally exploded into a huge opening. I was entering another level of consciousness expansion.

Isle of Skye land’s energy is cosmic and endless. I contrasted it with the energy, which is more familiar to me, that of forests and trees. This here was something very new. A lot bigger, a lot wilder, a lot more unfamiliar and my resistance was obvious and striking. The lesson here is to embrace the unfamiliar and whatever emotional state land energy throws you into listen carefully, flow with whatever is, as the land has a plan for us to upgrade, the universe works through the land to let us know who we are and what we are capable of. I became too safe, too contained in my practice and on my path, taking the same road again and again. Now is the time to expand my view and take a different road.

Elemental energies on the island were very representative of qualities I needed to pay attention to. Water and Air. Several times while being there I refused to go on a boat. I stated I felt safer on the Earth. Well, of course, I would and there is nothing wrong with the familiar and comfortable, yet it was obvious later on the clear invitation to ‘expand’, to dare try something that could stretch my soul’s arms even further.

Climbing hills and mountains was harder than usual and in my experience I found how self-critical and defeating I have recently become and it didn’t serve me. I almost saw the opposite in my dreams and I knew deep down the being within was crying for being released. Enough with meek and limited view of myself. I did not realise that this was happening in the last couple of months and what a wake-up call. Air element was very telling and representative of how ‘holding my breath’ I have become lately, that’s where my fear lived as well, not in an expansive state of open heart and chest, but in a state of constriction and limitation yet again. Ever since I got back I encountered a few people with the element ‘Water’ messages coming through inviting and encouraging me to explore the deep secrets of being on water and under water and its hidden treasures. I have heard about deep-sea diving, fishing, swimming afar, amongst other invitations of the Universe and have I considered them? Yes, I have, as they are clearly signs of further possibilities for expanding my inner divine.

Notes from the dream diary: ‘I feel I am in some sort of crisis, like I want to open up and feel fully, but I can’t. I want to breathe, but I end up holding my breath. I feel very clearly I am not fully open, I am conscious of my own restrictions. I am tense and holding back’. The purpose of my dreams and me being in that place was to expand my consciousness in order for me to embrace the potential within me unexplored or suppressed. Because of the intense energy of these upgrades my resistance grew and fear came in, doubt crept in. ‘I feel a bit disinterested, detached, wanting something else, not knowing what… wanting to be somewhere else, not feeling much.’

The most intense, emotionally shaking, trauma activating dreams here for me, every night. I found myself on a journey again while in Scotland only this time there was no warning, no preparation, the dreams’ material came with a booming presence and did not leave till it was done. I was receiving upgrades through diving deep into the dark night of the soul. Synchronicity of that experience included me reading this book, which I just picked up from the list on my kindle and that helped me navigate my experience well. I recommend it ‘The dark nights of the soul’.

I went through the process of death and rebirth in an intense representation of my abilities and powers. It was showing me what I could truly do if I was to embrace it and truly take all of my power back. From performing magic knowingly and loving it, to understand what love is, to consciously expanding my awareness of the universe within me – it was

Symbols, which stood out for me were the Burning sacred star, which connected me to the universe with such love; stairs; blood; colours, doors, gates, windows, keys were present in each dream, packing suitcases, number 4 featured heavily

The burning star symbol was the highlight of my whole experience. It was pure magic and emotions that ran through me were powerfully shaking and I felt it in every inch and cell of my physical body. It literally threw me out of my bed with screams and tears.

The Star symbol, Pentagram, Pentacle – there is rich history and representation to this symbol. Some representations are – universal consciousness; wholeness; a symbol of divine perfection; the four elements with the overarching presence of the spirit as the fifth point; our divine purpose in the universe and many more.

Messages: ‘putting all eggs in one basket’ – limiting myself, which does not serve me and suppresses my powers.

Being ashamed of my appearance, which does not fit with the usual ‘tidy’ image of ‘conditioned’ existence. Embracing the many clothes I was wearing rather than looking clean, tidy and presentable. Dreams containing fears and running late represented my choices, my ways of choosing to be and ultimately confirming that no one controls my choices, I am fully conscious to make them and live them out.

At the end of my dream journey on Skye I was flying in a helicopter over the land, taking it all in unafraid (I have a fear of heights), the colour green everywhere, my heart truly open. I was taking in the land and saw everything in an overview. Relieved and overjoyed.

I left the land reborn and truly facing the being that I am. My heart is full open with gratitude, pride and courage that whatever is ahead I will embrace it with no limitation or fears. I can do whatever I set my mind to. Magic runs through my veins and the power of wisdom and knowing is a natural flow of my soul. Compassionate heart and truly understanding universal love will keep me safe and encourage me not to be afraid to be me, to be of service, to fly free over the Land of consciousness.

Thank you Skye for the experience. I can’t wait to visit again and take you into my embrace of love and understanding.
