my Nimbin Good Times article…

beauty

I’ve just sent off my Nimbin Good Times article… July edition, probably on the streets end of next week.  Get yourself one if you can… lots of great articles… it’s the only paper I read.  So here it is…

Well it’s been a big couple of months… three Eclipses, Winter Solstice, Pluto and Uranus doing their thing (the harbingers of the new age)… and then of course all the other incomings and outgoings of planets into signs… making significant Galactic waves.

Everything is energy as… most of us now know… everything vibrates, has a message and can be felt.  The Galactic ‘soup’ is sparking with so much new and vibrant energy… and we are all a part;  birth and death, transformation and renewal… the cycle of Life.  And all those gorgeous white mornings of late… up here in the Woodenbong Hills… such invigorating air and spectacular views.  Gratitude overflows.

I grew up in a city, well actually I ‘arrived’ in the Blue Mountains not far from the magnificent Three Sisters; those very early impressions leaving a lasting love of nature… and the mountains in particular.

Growing up in the inner city there were lots of buildings and concrete… some of the old buildings were quite beautiful, the old Wool Stores still looking great.  But that’s not what I remember.  I remember community, the warmth, love and nurturing… the extended family, the smiling faces, the gatherings, the inclusion.  That has imprinted on my psyche.

It was our first real home… Murray St in Pyrmont… now called Darling Harbour.  It was a brick terrace house, surrounded by other brick terraces.  Our gardens backed onto each other, we often talked over the fence, or were invited in for lunch.  I have such warm memories of those times and I’m really grateful for those early years… I’m proud to be a Sydney girl.

My grandparents made their way to Australia around the turn of the century… the early 1900’s.  They came from Glasgow in Scotland… but were proudly Irish.  They settled in Glebe and made their new life here in Oz.  It must have been an incredibly brave thing to do… a young family with many children, unsure of what was in store for them when they arrived in this great southern land.

I’ve lived in many cities, both here and abroad.  I’ve lived at the top of narrow winding mountain roads, in various ‘trendy’ places, right in the heart of the city and a long stint in an ashram.  And now I live in the Woodenbong Hills… well actually it’s Lindesay Creek.

I’ll always be grateful for my early years, a close knit community, free with their sharing… a true sense of community.  It’s so important.

Jupiter has just entered the astrological sign of Cancer and will spend a year there… expanding, enlarging, visioning, learning, exploring and travelling…  our roots, our ancestry, our home and family… our earliest memories of love and nurturing.

I feel nurtured by Life, by love and sharing, by respect and consideration and especially by Mother Nature.  As a human being I have needs… that need fulfilling… we live as a member of one very large family, the human family.  Jupiter is often considered the great bestower of abundance, of plenty… may we find renewed enthusiasm, greatness and appreciation, may inspired visions fill our awareness…  may we live in peace and harmony… on this majestic Earth.

Have a sensational month… immersing yourself in nurturing energy… lotsa luv.

Solstice Eve…. and there’s Magick about…

IMG_1655

Sparkling Tree ‘Stars’

Living in this Magickal World…. of wondrous Beauty… mysteries unfolding

We have the eyes to see… beyond the veil… multi-dimensional… the view… in front of us

Created by Life… an exquisite substance… everything has a purpose… everything has meaning

on this Heaven called Earth

All speak… all vibrate…hidden messages everywhere

Knock and the door will be opened… ask and you will receive

Love and kindness permeate… mysteries unfold… reveal to the seeker

nothing hides

all is visible… takes a certain kind of looking… secrets aren’t hidden

The Magick fills me… with each Breath coming

Small white Hawk soars… his prey discovered…he’s spent some time practising his flying

he’s young… he’s growing his skills… he rests in the trees

I feel overwhelmed… by the Magick around me

Soft blue Winter skies… clear of clouds… Sun is shining brightly…  so warm

a sensational world

Today is what I have… what I see… what I hear… what I understand

and comprehend

it’s all I know… Tomorrow will never come

I saturate myself… in the Beauty of the Moment… Ancient Knowledge is there for the asking

we’re incredibly gifted

I need to experience… I need to feel… I need to know… things for myself… it’s only then

I know it to be true

All the knowledge… is locked inside me… years of learning… to discover

the key to unfolding… such a bounty I carry

The most magnificent exists… all around us… so incredibly gifted…

do we understand the purpose?

When I ask… the answer arrives… I need to be still… I need to focus

on what’s in front of me… of what’s inside me

There are so many layers to what we see… no need to stop… at the surface… the wealth is deeper

keep on going

The ‘ways’ of the World… shaped and shifted by generations of people… unconscious

is not the treasure that we’re seeking

Stop… be still… look with new eyes… concentrate… until you can see… the curtain parts

behind is revealed

A Magickal World… you never could dream

Where all the secrets have been hidden from view…. you are more than you know

Hidden behind the gossamer veils… are worlds upon worlds… Life abounds… so many

different levels

What a Magickal creation… open your eyes and you will see it

a Winter’s mid-morning… on the verandah

Silver reflections…. of the Sun God

 

Gloriously warm heat… from the Sun God… feels so.o.o.o good… on these cold and frosty Winter mornings….

Sun’s radiance sparkles silver… glistening… shining reflections… on the deep green leaves….

Smells are neutral… free of aromas…  pure and simple air… is all around me…

Powder blue sky… clear, without interruptions… Gemma resting… chewing her cud, whilst she rests her body….

Blue-black crows… their familiar loud cawing… such magnificent birds… carrying such mystery….

Noisy Miners… claiming their name… hidden from view… surrounded by deep golden Banksias… a magnificent specimen…

Fluffy hot-pink socks… still cover my feet… mid-grey, soft brushed cotton pyjamas… covered in pink and white stars… still adorn my body… it’s a resting week… it was an incredibly BIG New Moon….

only three days… before the mid-year Winter Solstice… two days later the Capricorn Full Moon….

I live a life of ease and grace… protection, bounty, nurturing and giving…

I create my world….

I am a Magician….

Granddaughter of a Gypsy….

Gypsy Royalty in my blood….

I can feel it….

 

What a magnificent World… I say Thank You… for all you give….

the magick continues… the gift of appreciation

another magickal morning….

 

Another gorgeous Winter’s Morning… I say ‘another’… but it’s a brand new day!

Oh how I love these magickal times!

White frost covers the ground… ghostly mists rise from their evening beds… distant moo from a farm over the creek…  fire burning inside… a new delivery of wood… I feel like a Queen… such abundance is gifted….

I breathe in the freshness…  an exquisite experience…. oh how I love that clean, fresh, vital Prana… a gift from the Gods….

Solitary callings throughout the valley… all quiet here… they’re having a sleep in… on this cold Winter’s morning…. ahhh Mr Kooka…. who would have thought!

Muscles in my face commanded to stretch… as wide as they can… such a smile on my face… I feel like a Goddess… who has found her Home….

Twinkles in my eyes… can almost see the sparkles… glittering outwards… returning the Loving….

No Kooka’s here yet… and Light is here… they must have stayed later… into the night….

A flock of Ibis down near the Border… their throaty honking… a delightful welcome….

ahh… this magickal valley….

Earth’s great treasures… we need to protect them… with our energy… creating shields… that are simply impenetrable….

What Magick surrounds me… the Goddess is present….

Sun’s reflection glows on the page of my journal… yet it’s still well hidden behind the forest… but it’s ‘colour’ unmistakable… how amazing… it glows thru my writings….

This special time… as the Night meets the Day… what wondrous Magick… it fills every particle… miracles are happening… Alchemy in progress… transformation occurring… turning Dark into Light….

Another Day has arrived… Breath still Graces me… the Gift of Appreciation… is simply awesome….

‘THANK YOU’  I say…such a smile of my face… I breathe in deeply… taking this Magick into my Body… It heals all it touches…

We have all we need…….

a new day arriving…

IMG_1606

What Magick exists

Darkness punctured by the Light  in the East… stillness pervades… all still slumbering…

won’t be long till the chorus begins.

Cold air refreshes… tingles my nostrils… Heart sighs… in the arms of the Mother.

Distant sound… a muted bellow… an exploring cat, keeping an eye on her mischief… she’s no rights for hunting…

Mahalia is a sanctuary… all Life is precious.

The strip of light, blue/grey, widens… elongates… kisses so sweet tingle my face… the Mother is close.

So quiet… so still… my body ravishes the Essence.

This Planet Earth… a magickal experience… fog lying low… beginning to rise…

 a long winter’s night resting in the hollows.

I feel so at home… in this garden of Eden… knowledge of mysteries no longer hidden…

free for our viewing.

Light is growing… not far away now… fog lifting higher… released from its holding…

dispersing quickly… moving higher and higher.

Still no sound… silence is golden… not time for announcing… a new day is birthing.

I close my eyes… and breathe in the newness… I feel so alive… so gifted, so protected…

Life is nurturing.

The Light is spreading… few stars now visible… one by one they disappear in the oneness…

a new day is dawning.

Strands of red colour mingle with the greyness… not long now till the arrival of the Sun god.

All still quiet… the silence vibrates… healing energy of the highest order…

light is growing, not long now.. the Sun is coming… oh how we need him…

a perfect creation.

The silence sings… like Angels in my ears… it moves thru my body… cleanses and heals…

what magick exists.

A new day is birthing…  Sun soon arriving…  oh what blessings.

Ahhhh.. the official announcement from deep in the forest… a lone Kooka chortles… many will follow.

Tears build… my gratitude overwhelms… I’m alive… I experience…

my appreciation is enormous.

Life is happening… the gifts never-ceasing… what a spectacular existence.

The sky fills with red

the passion is glowing
