Pray with Me

I talk to the River. I tell her what I am dreaming about and what I am wishing for and I thank her for being in my life. I am not sure of the exact day that I started taking walks in the morning before work, but I can tell you that it is an…

Entering into Relationship

When I entered into relationship with the bees on my land, the land responded. The land flourished for two reasons; I planted more flowers and herbs and the land now had a partner, not just a gardener. The first reason is easier to explain. I wanted more food for my bees, plus I love gardening…

A Call to Beeing

“Well, you got it done by May 26th, just like your dream, ” says Jesse as he comes up behind me, bringing me back from my partial trance like state as I am sitting cross-legged on the ground, staring in amazement at the entrance of my first hive. “Huh? What do you mean?” I ask…

The Time In Between

I hold my own breath, counting the time in between his breaths; 17, 18, 19 and then a soft breath, followed by a crescendo and then decrescendo of breaths before another gap. Nine breaths to be exact. The first and last are almost imperceptible, but they count. I figure it was such a struggle for…

Balanced Scales

The full moon is shining brightly.  In my calendar, it is Balancing Moon and it certainly feels as if things that have needed balancing, are finally coming to a place of equilibrium.  Equal; balanced.  Libra; scales.  It does make sense that the constellation of the zodiac representing balance, is the only one depicted by an…

Cosmic Wheel

Newly made comb is lovingly placed in my head to store that which is without, within.

Tendrils of intelligent light extend past the family of phoebes and community of maples, past the family…

Tracks of Life

The Woods knew.  I was on my way to make an offering at the Fairy Tree that was Kissed by the Winds, but she was no longer there.  Not in the way of the rest of the trees whose breath was slowed with the cold; but her dead body was hacked into pieces by a…

A Spiral of Love

  A prayer is released out into the world for Love. As it spirals its way through the melting snows and into the warming soils, it carries the experience and memory of ancestors whose hands once crushed herbs with intent to heal. It carries with it peace on the scent of lavender and the purple…

Holy Desire

On this Valentine’s Day, ask yourself, what is your Holy Desire? On a day that can be confusing to some, due to placing love outside of themselves, turn that love within and find out what is the spark that makes YOU feel alive.  What is it that wakes you from your slumber and motivates you,…

As Above, So Below

Standing in the Center of the Lemniscate of the Year that She and her sister helped to birth into being, She stands in her power position, drawing energy to Her from Shadow below and from the Sky above, just as She of the Thorn Blooded Rose taught Her.  The stilled air is framed by the…

Where Sky Meets Earth

Gowned in gold and black, The Queen leaves alone for this most Sacred of journeys.  She can sense she is going the right way, as her body is made for this.  She knows the health of her entire world depends on her success.  The wind blowing against her back, gently pushes her forward, towards her…
