autumn is here... we have the chilliness in the air that heralds the coming of autumn... the damp grass in the morning, the long shadows of an afternoon... and the spider webs with twisted leaves, where the spider lives, strung across the paths, waiting to trap some poor unsuspecting insect.. these all let my inner me, know that autumn is coming..
I wanted to show you a photo of the autumn shadows... this photo was taken early this morning and once again I have captured orbs (I think).. I took so much care, to clean the lense and focus properly but still they are there! This was taken under my ancient pine tree, where sometimes I find faery rings.
yesterday, we went on a bike ride to a tiny little town called O'Connell... through some of the most gorgeous countryside - the sky was a sparkling blue and the temperature was, well, damn chilly.... I do some profound thinking while I am on the bike... I kind of enter a Zen zone... I have been finding that Mary Magadalene has been coming into my life alot lately. Awhile ago, I bought a book called The Secret Teachings of Mary Magdalene by Claire Nahmad & Margaret Bailey. Both Daisy and Colette had told me about it, so I went out and bought it and put it on my shelf and promptly forgot about it.. I picked it up a few days ago. Alot of food for thought in this book... anyhow, back to the Zen zone that I am in on the back of the bike.... my thoughts started to wander to Mary Magdalene and I wondered if she were someone that I could connect to on a daily basis.. and as I thought this, I felt my heart chakra warm up. Like it was filled with pure love. It was an amazing sensation and I knew she was with me, right at that very moment. And it felt right. . And you know, she is with me all the time, I can feel her. ... my thoughts wandered a little more....to my ancestors.. I went back in time in my thoughts and how many people I am related to... then back even further to my past lives, a whole different family tree... and back and back I went, til I realized that I must be related to everyone via my soul. This was a very profound moment for me... maybe many of you realize all of this already but it is a first for me... call me a late bloomer! It is amazing while in this zen zone that I manage to stay on the bike. Or are my thoughts just the insanity of a mind that has been lulled into a sense of hypnosis by the constant whirring of the bike engine...
my allergies are back. damn. I thought i had them all under control with all my herb taking and organic food eating.. but the sneezes and watering eyes are back. damn. So instead of being the martyr, I am going to take the chemicals this time. A few discussions with a friend has helped me come to this decision. That, plus all I keep hearing in my head is Daisy, saying 'take the bloody pills'.... and like my friend said 'take the pills you need to, which will give you some relief. You want balance. It sounds like you make good choices already, so it's very possible the positive impact will out weigh the neg. one.' ~ so if I eat properly and take the chemicals.. I should feel better.. it is a hard thing for me to do though, I must admit.
today, I scrubbed my bathrooms... all the while talking to Mary Magdalene. I feel I am on the homeward journey at the moment. at last. here are a few pics of my bathroom...
sometimes, after cleaning.. ~no, make that every time after cleaning, I am really soul satisfied... I look at the gorgeous rooms, all sparkling.. and think to myself - I did that. I created this little piece of Heaven in my home. For myself and for my loved ones.
I have soup simmering on my stove that smells divine and I worked in the garden for an hour or two this afternoon and I am satisfied. I am totally soul satisfied.
