''The elf-queene, with hir joly compaignie, Daunced ful ofte in many a grene mede.” Geoffrey Chaucer "The Wife of Bath’s Tale"


Another sister (in-law) unexpectedly crossed the Rainbow Bridge yesterday, RIP, and  I'm beyond sad at her loss, but happy we'd  had a fun chat just a few hours before.  Don't wait, call/visit those dear.


I've been busy decorating, and along the way received inspiration as the Mercury Retrograde vibrational slowdown cleared the deck for higher frequencies of creative expression.  More on this after Mercury goes stationary direct.


With Mercury the action planet gone retrograde, some are experiencing  setbacks/speed bumps.  Here at The Cottage, while the above is true, on the plus side I'm enjoying the slowdowns sharpening focus/intention.  The activated zen frequency revealed clarity in areas I've been ignoring and the slow motion provided the space to correct, review, refresh, revise, release.  


Did you know what you send out will return to you?  If you beam love, love will beam you right back! This includes inanimate objects since it's all energy,  so love your car, your job, your house etc.  Ditto emotions - bless everyone and everything and The Universe will return it in appropriate form, Right For You.  Try it.


If your reality mirror is less than you'd like, then change your thinking/self-talk.   If you understand that the outer reflects the inner, then amend the latter and the former will respond. The subconscious mind believes what you present it aka it's technology, garbage in garbage out, so give it what you prefer.


Getting ready for the holidays is a reminder to rededicate to my decorating hobby,  a moving meditation, activated as a child on the farm. Inspired by supportive parents, I'm ever grateful for the No Limits space they provided, where creative self expression was encouraged and  approved.  Familial DNA set the bar high, both a challenge and a gift.  Thank you.


Image result for antique gas heaterHappy Thanksgiving!  I'm going to family dinner today, always fun to spend some time with my talented nieces that have shared this path with me.  Our host, their Mother, gave me my first bubble gum and taught me how to blow bubbles and another time,  rolled  my long hair (I had natural curl so dunno why?) in rags for an Olan Mills Photoshoot with my nieces, greatly treasured today, and I'll never forget their cozy guest bedroom in Oklahoma City where I'd fall asleep watching the flames of the pretty gas heater - maybe accounts for my love of hearth, whether English fireplace or wood stove on the farm. Happy days.


The 2018 holiday season activated the design fairy/domestic goddess  here at The Cottage, inspired by holiday memories growing up on the farm,  made so special by my artistic creative parents (their gift that keeps on giving).  With gingerbread cookies on the buffet, candles on the dining table twinkling in the crystal chandelier, and  Mama's Russian spiced tea simmering on the stove, I'm blessed with contentment in spite of missing my loved ones that crossed the Rainbow Bridge all too soon, but ever alive in mind and heart. . . they'll always be with me in spirit.   


A few mornings ago I was surprised by a momentary glimpse of  A New Earth.   Did the fond snow memories elevate vibrations activating the shift into that frequency?  Although too brief for details, it was for real -  live action in living color instantly identifiable!  Stay tuned,


In spite of life's passages, some things remain much the same -  such as welcoming the holiday season and all the trimmings.  The gatherings grew smaller over the years and nothing can replace my  loving husband gone too soon, who shared fully in the holiday spirit, so fun.  I am so blessed and ever thankful. 


We had some Goldilocks snow at The Cottage (just right- ground covered but roads clear), inspiring a raised vibratory sense a la A New Earth.  I'm content, with a cuppa, fire in the fireplace, candles lit in honor of the goddess, grateful to my artistic gardener healer parents that passed on their DNA/creativity and the space to explore. Growing up, on  a morning like this I would have a cup of Mama's cocoa, toes by the fire, probably reading a fairytale, free to dream until time to make snow ice cream - I can still taste it.  Thanks to The Universe for its gifts.


Here's a shout out to all our vets!  Thank you for your service. 


This weekend I took the time to review as we enter the holiday season and the New Year on the horizon.  A year ago I intended to have sold The Cottage and relocate by this time,  but The Universe had other plans.  Even though I understand computer simulated reality software playing, I will persist in asserting what I think is best vis a vis resistance is futile and merely feeds the egoic mind. . . sigh.

I've posted about The Return Of The Divine Feminine aka Great Mother often including my own goddess experience near Branson years ago. You could research the works of Zecharia Sitchin and others about the original "Mother" and make up your own mind - goddess yes spiritual no.  Join us.


Yesterday's remote group healing was a good one!  I felt the transmission the entire 10 minutes, relaxing/trusting the intelligent energy focused for highest good and awoke this morning sensing raised vibrations/wellness body, mind and spirit.  Thank you Charlie!


You may have guessed but we're already in the Mercury Retrograde PreShadow phase so here's the lowdown:
Mercury Retrograde 2018
The three phases of Mercury retrograde 2018:
  1. 1st Shadow Period, October 28 to November 16
  2. Mercury Retrograde, November 16 to December 6
  3. 2nd Shadow Period, December 6 to 24

Mercury Enters Retrograde Zone 28 October 2018 at 27°16′ Scorpio

From now until Mercury stationary retrograde is the first shadow period. During this time you will get an idea of the thinking, communication or transport issues that will arise during the retrograde phase.

If you wish you could change the world, try the HoOponopono technique.

Understanding the ancient Hawaiian practice of Forgiveness

By Jonathan Davis on Friday December 11th, 2015

Ho'oponopono can help restore harmony within, and with others

The mantra at the heart of Ho'oponoponoWhen I first encountered the practice known as Ho’oponopono, it was in an interview with Haleaka Hew Len PhD, a Hawaiian psychologist and shamanic practitioner. I took on the simple yet profound forgiveness practice and found immediate benefits in my personal life.
Ho’oponopono: I’m sorry, please forgive me, thank you, I love you.

What is ho’oponopono?

On the surface level, many people have understood ho’oponopono to be a mantra where one repeats the words ‘I’m sorry, please forgive me, thank you, I love you’ as a form of mental and spiritual cleaning that could be compared to buddhist techniques for clearing karma. It has been defined as a forgiveness and reconciliation practice, cleansing of ‘errors of thought’ – the origin of problems and sickness in the physical world, according the the Hawaiian worldview. The literal translation is ‘to put to right; to put in order or shape, correct, revise, adjust, amend, regulate, arrange, rectify, tidy up, make orderly or neat.”
The mantra at the heart of Ho’oponopono
The only problem with human beings is that they are arrogant, because that’s what thinking is. This is in essence ‘I know’. Wisdom is being in the void. To be thoughtless. Only by being in the void can the Light come through. As long as I have something going on in my mind the Light can’t come through. The Light can only come in when the mind is cleared – in a state of silence. – Dr Hew Len, Shamanic Wisdomkeepers
