1I7A2647a-1-1Sometimes like many people, I feel that there is something missing. A void exists, and I am not sure how to fill it. That is how I have felt up until now.  It is said that everything that we have ever done in life, gets us to this exact point where we are at right now. Many self help books adhere to the premise that the point of power is now.  They are right, we never really have any other moment than that which is now, this moment, this precise moment; the present.

Today I have realised that I have this body that has carried me through life, this mind that is always curious and wanting to learn more in the quest for knowledge, and my spirit which is sometimes low but often elated because of one thing or another that has brightened my day. Whether that be the sound of a loved ones laughter, the Robin Redbreast alighting on the plant pot outside the door, the elderflower tree which just now is in flower, not to mention the mighty Lime Flower Tree which stands higher than the house in our minuscule back garden (which in truth is actually a small plot of dirt because of two boisterous, though loveable dogs). In these simple things there is beauty and peace. There is the wonder of life.

It is up to me how I choose to fill my vessel. I can choose to nourish or to damage that which carries me on my voyage. I get to choose how I ‘feed’ myself.

Let the journey recommence. Bon voyage!

Today is the day…

Butterflies symbolise change and transformation!  Time to come out of the darkness of the  cocoon and emerge free as a Butterfly

Moon Magic…

Saturday saw a Full Blue Moon here in the UK. The Flower Moon, also known as the Milk Moon, The Hare Moon and The Corn planting Moon. I did not actually see it, if I am honest with you but it was there somewhere. The Moon is a very powerful entity! It is said that the Moon can affect our moods, as well as the tides. You hear the term Lunar Effect and Moon Madness, by the light of the Moon and of course Moon Magic. Mankind has always been mesmerised by this beautiful satellite, at least I think it is the Earth’s satellite, so much so that we sent men up to the Moon. There was a time when sending men up to the Moon was just a pipe dream, and people did not believe it was at all  possible. It became reality, demonstrating that dreams can and do come true, and that anything is possible. The appearance of a Blue Moon is said to be much more powerful than a normal Full Moon. We can apparently expect good times, good luck, and good karma to come our way with the appearance of a Blue Moon. I guess though, it helps to believe in these things. I for one do believe in these things. I believe in Magic and know we all have it within our power to make Magic in our worlds. We get to create our own realities! It really is up to us!

In wolf symbolism we are reminded to trust our hearts and minds, and that we have control over our own lives. Again, something from our natural world teaching us that we can achieve anything, if we focus our attention on the goal, whatever that goal may be. We can learn much from the natural world! If you have a dream or a goal that you want to achieve, focus on it, give it your full attention, believe you can achieve it, act like you already have it, and watch the Magic happen! Just take that first step. Whether that is signing up for a course, a class, an event, applying for a new job, changing direction, writing a book, just take that first step. A dream/goal  begins with an idea, a vision, a seed, and then it is up to us to nurture it, and watch it grow. Every journey begins with a single step! So take that first step today!


I wish everyone a brilliant week! May your dreams come true!

All the images here are mine. The Blue Moon was a picture I captured of a Super Moon last year but I changed it’s colour in Photoshop. The Wolf image was captured on a recent trip to Longleat Safari Park, and the image at the top was the two images blended together in Photoshop, something I have been teaching myself to do. I hope you like them.
