Sacred In The Ordinary

My backyard view…

There Is Sacred In The Ordinary

If we just open our eyes..

It’s all right there in front of us..

There is no disguise.

Beauty is all around us

In every shape and size

But so many of us are blind to it

Which leads to our demise.

We’re unhappy and

We’re miserable

We’re never satisfied…

There Is Sacred In The Ordinary

If we just open our eyes…

We also need to awaken

Our Hearts, Our Souls, Our Minds

To receive the gifts of The Sacred

The Ordinary and The Divine.

Here’s to Magic and New Beginnings!! 

Wow, here we are, 2019. Brought in the New Year on the phone with a friend..unexpected but nice.  Slept with windows opened and a warm start to 2019……..Met up with my littles at the park..splashed in mud puddles, slid down wet slides and burned off some energy…..then coffee and muffins and a soul-stroll around town…in T-shirt’s!! This is definitely my idea of winter in the south…while I know it’s short lived I’m luvin’ it……….

Yay!!

While out soul-strolling, found a feather. Couldn’t help but smile…luv ‘my signs’ from above. ❤️

12 Nights Of Solstice..Night 4

 

A time of traveling into the deep places of remembering. This is a time of connecting
with your inner knowledge. This is a time of moving into the realms beneath the surface, visiting the caverns of the ancestors. Gifting and honoring energies will guide you as you move through the depths and into the night sky. Finding the support that guides you along your way to celebrating the deep darkness and the return of the sun…the Winter Solstice.

 

 

As I continue my 12 Nights Of Solstice Journey I allowed my mind to wander……as seems to be the case with me and my journey, words begin to emerge, spiral and form…

 

This key

Reveled itself to me.

A gift.

And now with key in hand,

My journey continues….

As I wander, 

I wonder,

What is this a key to.

What secrets await me as I 

Continue on.

I Am The Holder Of The Key

I am a Seeker of The Lock………….and this stone,

it’s shape significant.

I await its message.

Key….and Stone 

 

Then, with my key and stone in hand, I emerged into the dark night…

Birds Of A Feather

We here in North Carolina were treated with, in my opinion, a very unwanted snowfall this past weekend. My ‘argument’…Lets move south for the snow..said No One Ever fell on deaf ears as Mother Nature has her own agenda. While keeping my bird feeders full, I snuggled in and enjoyed my back deck view……

12 Nights Of Solstice…Night Two

Night Two found me bundling up and venturing outside for a late night soul-stroll.  Cat over at Journey Path Institute:12 Nights Of Solstice, invited us to find a Sacred branch or wand…my wand of choice proved to be my pencil. After my soul stroll in the dark, I came back inside, listened to the meditation, then proceeded to write….

imposed my poem on a photo of my tree taken in the dark….kinda like this effect 

As someone who has always been a morning person, these meditations and exercises have me stepping out of my ‘normal realm’ and embracing the dark. 

Welcome to Second Night of Solstice,

A time of traveling and following the heart path. 
This is a time of connecting with your inner expression,
revealing the stripped down self.
This is a time of finding your way between the veil,
and through the edges of time…
seeking assistance in the reflective surface.
Finding the gifts that will illuminate and guide you along your way to
celebrating the deep darkness, and the return of the sun.
