Everything has a purpose...

Everything, person, and event was put on your path with and for a purpose.
There is no such thing as a coincidence, or accident. It is all divinely
orchestrated with all aspects of you. Your life purpose is ultimately to do that
which brings you joy, satisfaction, growth and fulfillment. Seeking these soul
qualities will put you on your path, and attract to you all the right people,
places and things.

To find the purpose of a current situation, ask your angels to guide you to a
greater understanding. See yourself and the entire situation through the eyes
of your angels, with compassion, love and an open mind. Judge no one,
including yourself. Send out waves of love and see the entire situation healed
and complete. Spend time meditating alone upon the gifts that are bestowed
upon you during this time and hold that energy in your heart as you go about
your day.

Affirmation: Everything and everyone has a purpose and each event in my life
is carefully laid out for me and with me to experience the totality of my
journey.

You are dearly loved and supported, always, the angels

Throughout life we must cope with blockages that impede our forward momentum.
Whether these obstacles are of a personal, professional, or societal nature, our first instinct
may be to push against the obstruction. But the simplest way to alleviate resistance is to
approach it gently, with a soft manner and kind intentions. Struggle and strife can find no
foothold when confronted with mildness because conflict can only exist when fed by two
opposing forces. So many areas of our lives can benefit from the application of gentleness.
The beauty of gentleness lies in its multifaceted nature. It is part love, part compassion,
part patience, part understanding, and part respect for others. When we move through
life gently as a matter of course, we naturally attract these wonderful elements into our
lives.

This does not mean that gentle people are by nature passive or meek. Rather, their
copious inner power is manifested in their gentleness and their choice to move with the
flow of the universe instead of against it. You can make use of gentleness in your own life
by applying it in situations where you feel challenged by your circumstances or by people
in your environment. As you move forward gently, the energy pervading your life will
likely shift and, consequently, the blockages before you will vanish. Cooperation
progresses smoothly when approached gently because all parties involved feel confident
that their needs will be met. And quarrels are easily quelled with gentleness because the
dualistic concepts of losing and winning are made moot by our willingness to exercise
infinite patience with those whose values differ from our own.

Gentleness must be practiced, as we are inadvertently encouraged to act competitive in
certain phases of our lives. At first, your established habits may make being truly gentle
challenging. Yet after a time, if you commit to consciously applying gentleness to all areas
of your life, whether by collaborating rather than competing or yielding graciously to the
impassable roadblocks in your path in order to seek a new road, you will find that you
begin to act gently habitually. Your patterns of thought and behavior become ever more
peaceful, and you will discover that you encounter far less impassable resistance on your
individual journey.

Focus your light on your desired outcome...

As your light becomes stronger and clearer, a happy outcome will come your way. Ask
your angels to fill you with more light, for it contains spiritual information and wisdom.
Learn what you can from all situations and they move when you are complete. These are
keys to Universal wisdom and bring you love, harmony and peace, as well as unlocking
the wisdom within you.

Let your light shine on all your creations and surround them with positive expectations.
Have patience and faith, don't try to force things to happen, just let them unfold as they
should for the good of all which of course includes you. Rest, relax and enjoy the process
of creation, for it is truly a part of your purpose.

Affirmation: Each day my light shines brighter and brighter, assisting those around me to
find their own inner light. I am Light.

The other day I was writing a response to someone who was asking me something
about totem animals. To paraphrase the situation; this person constantly had totems in
their life that pushed them hard, and made them feel constantly challenged. They were
confused and upset, because they didn't always feel like they had the energy to be
challenged all the time. Sometimes all they wanted was comfort, or reassurance. I have
seen this sentiment expressed before, in many places, and so I asked them if they had ever
thought of putting the mental and spiritual call out there for totems or spirit guides who
would simply offer comfort and succour.

They responded with surprise. It had never occurred to them that it's possible to have
supportive spirits in their life, and so they laboured under the idea that spirituality always
had to be hard, and a struggle. After my email, they searched out a totem animal that
would provide comfort when things were very difficult; and things progressed well for
them spiritually after that.

Spirit helpers and totem animals can help with a lot of different things. They can be the
energies that take you apart during an initiation, they can be the ones to tell you to 'get
your act together!' and the ones to give you a metaphysical kick up the backside to get you
back on track, they can be the ones to offer advice in a difficult situation, or offer silence to
remind you that you really can figure it out on your own; honest. They can be the
creatures we are terrified of, or the ones we adore and admire, and they can be animal
energies we didn't know we could appreciate until they came into our lives.

But they can also be the energies that simply love us for who we are. The totems that
soothe us when things are hard. They might be the animals that offer comfort without us
'working' for it. Who take us in when we are broken and overwhelmed and give succour
in exchange for our seeking them out in a crisis or a hard time.

Heron is the animal energy that offers this to me. It's quite strange, really, because
although I have always loved herons, I have mostly seen them as bold, powerful, graceful
animals. And if you look at how most herons raise their chicks; they are not perhaps the
animal you'd immediately associate with softness and love.







But then animal totems are also unpredictable, and heron chose this for himself in my life;
I didn't choose the role for him. As some of you probably know - animal totems never just
fit into a box of select keywords. I mean sometimes they do, but very often they don't.
That's why it's so important to go beyond the dictionaries in your personal relationships
with totem animals, but that's for another article!

The heron that comes to me is a super-sized white-faced heron (Egretta novaehollandiae).
He very rarely says anything, and only comes into my life and lays his wings upon me
when I think I cannot go on; when I think I cannot keep loving and caring for myself;
when I just need some help. He doesn't ask for anything in return, though he has my love
and gratitude always, and he has never pushed me away.

That being said, I do not work with him as much as I could, because accepting comfort,
and reassurance, and unconditional love is - of itself - very challenging for me, and for
many of us. It's why so many of us don't even think about searching out or asking if there
are any energies in our lives that would offer these valuable things to us. And no wonder,
when so many of us struggle to offer comfort and succour to ourselves when we most
need it. We are so often pushing ourselves past the next frontier, throwing ourselves into
the next challenge, worrying we won't be good enough, or simply forgetting that
accepting love, peace and comfort (from ourselves, as well as from spirits) is a form of
valid spiritual nourishment; just as giving others love and comfort is as well.

For those of you who work with spirits of any kind, are there any who simply offer you
comfort, love and reassurance? Did they come to you at a tough time in your life? Or did
you have to search them out? If you have no spirits of energies in your life that could offer
this, why do you think this is the case? Do you think you would benefit from knowing
there was someone other than human who you could approach for succour?

Like a Wild dream. that sticks with us over and over you have reoccurring thoughts of
this dream even when you least expect it. a memory flashback comes to mind..You do not
know why. and at same time you try to understand what it means you are trying to make
sense out of it..trying to figure if there is a message there.. for some it is a message and
eventually we get it.. figure it out. some messages are to spread to others or messages just
to ourselves for observation of events, time, place, people.

Then before you know because phone rings or kid calls you or dinner time but a
distraction ..you soon forget this thought until it randomly comes to mind or it confuses
you so much you continue to try to figure out this dream and meaning.

As there are many gifted and use to the idea of picking up messages to help others to give
them a positive outlook we spread that message hoping it reaches to those that needed it.
for when we get messages we know it is for our available reach or extension of our ability
and resource to as many as we can..

But then something odd pops into your mind out of the normal configuration of your in
tuning and receiving messages and odd thing like aliens come to mind. you cannot forget
that when we have gifts and do not work in the NORM paradigm we cannot go back to
arguing with ourselves with rational thinking..

we got past that long ago..

So when something comes to you as odd as this and we receive messages from our higher
selves from our higher sources.. we tend to not recognize other factions of the uni verse
and their purpose in all this workers, The messengers when need for various purposes..

I will tell you now. if you think you can multi task with what you do now..you could not
imagine what you could do otherwise out of the Norm and to Earths limited resource for
conducting such methods..

and when we think it’s hard work at times again is our Earthly rational thinking..





You would quite remarkably find hyper multi tasking to be quite easy when the resources
are available ..so back to these messengers.

they are part of that multi task.. to help us along in our way or to help us with others.. is
like having co workers on the great scheme of things.

We were earth bound for the experience and knowledge and observation of feeling
,sensing, seeing what was going on in this plain.

for the others cannot for various reasons along with earth's density and vibrations don’t
match..

I have a feeling there is many who have been visited and have been giving assistance..but
yet do not recognize it. and with all the reports you see is always a negative event..which I
dont take totally true. as long as you have your intent right ..your purpose you attrack
those you need..and when you keep that right vibration or area of concentration does not
allow negative things to interfere for you are greater than that in your purpose and cause..

I myself have had 3 incidents of sightings and have picks. were they here for me or
another? I always say if you can see them. they can see you.

because we are so limited to our resources we cannot comprehend possibilities of
another’s ability and talents or use.. and really is best not to try when you do not have that
access unless it is shown to you..

Many of us feel the ability to do what is possible considering limitations..when all
recognize you give energy to something by the mass it changes ..is so many thinking for
themselves looking for recognition to be purely recognized in their attempt as if they want
a reward.. I never expect that. confidence is a reward to me for all my attempts and intent.

I did not sway off the topic of visitation ..I just had to remind or instate what is..the
possibilities we cannot deny. but the chance we are being visited and helped. if I was ever
to meet one I know what my reaction would be or question..wouldn’t be a surprise..but
simple ask "So what’s next" and continue my work to my offered ability as time goes
on..reason I say that is although I knew since 5 years of age things were different and in
the last 4 years have greatly achieved understanding and use of my gift.

I feel them rapidly enhancing.

Messages are coming to me more and more to blog on I just haven’t I been waiting on that
right time when I need one more word and I am on it or that moment or second validation
that its needed..




I don’t just jump the gun at wrong time..certain things happen in sequence with many
specially the gifted ones as it effects us with full moon or a retrograde..

and we realize is no dire immediate hurry but the message would be soon told..

that is why we are only giving bits and pieces at times, we think on it enough for the first
part we got..that you can easily add the rest when it comes to you..

I feel and have for long time feel I have company always around me several matter of fact.
but see I try to not reveal too much by law. aliens cannot interfere due to our freewill and
request so we can have a solid assessment of life on earth ..but yet they have been givin
reason to as with me and others..that had been violated long ago by another faction not
around for our interest but as resource and minerals.

so in that is found a violation that cannot be kept and correction is rightfully set by proper
requirements to do so.

some of us can except things out of the norm and see outside the box although not easy
but helps when you can at least give some leverage and allow our Higher sources utilize
us for a greater purpose and resolve and with help of their messengers and co workers..
we are all co workers in this..

Never fear the thought of visitation.. again fear feeds the negative and will be what you
attrack if do so..so keep yourself in check with your confidence and intent ..never give
power to something to hurt your ability and intent to proceed and you will attrack the
right help you need.. and try not to be impatient.

things always seem to happen when you least expect as to the saying about watching a
pot of boiling water..never boils lol

have any questions is easier to ask me then me to give you a total run thru of Universal
aspects. and or how they come to me.

just know my words come to me as I type the idea presented the rest comes after when I
start :)

Much peace

Shadow




What is true love??
Posted by §haÐðw






It's not desire or wants its not expectations
or forcing one to believe
and when true love is present will be recognized,
seen and felt and even heard.
True Love is not changing someone.
it is not something you reflect bad on when it’s true.
some say unconditional love.
the excepting of all and anything.
excepting someone for who they are and what they do.
it's not something or a purpose to use against another
just because you can.
when you truly love.
you admire and show the same love back
your heart goes out to them
time seems long in absence
this person is always on your mind
and you feel what they feel
and true love is not being afraid to express it.
or not making them second or last.
But equal.

When first coming to the craft, many are taught or learn through books about rituals
for creating sacred space. It is not hard to find a lot of information through the internet on
how to consecrate and create circles and areas for various magical workings.

However; I have not seen very much information on how to create a magical home. I have
found a paragraph here and there scattered throughout various books and on the Internet.
On this our Wiccan path, our homes are brought from the mundane world into the sacred
as often they are our place of sanctuary to do our works of magic. With this in mind I put
pen to paper as I tell you about ways to create an environment where one you can
incorporate magic into your life.

I have walked this path for most of my life and have learned a few tricks and hints a long
the way. It is some of these hints I plan to share with you. In creating a Magical home you
must start at the beginning, with a mop, bucket, a broom and a vacuum. You may think
cleaning your house is not a magical task, but I assure you it is. I am often heard saying,
“It is all in the intent.” I feel this way about cleaning too. Your home, sacred space, ritual
place, always has a better feeling when it is clean. The act of cleaning changes the
vibrational levels in your home. As do so many other things, from changing where
furniture is places to the colors of your walls and what you hang on them.

Music is also a good tool to change the vibrations of a room and to help get you a little
more motivated. Pick something you like which has an up beat to it, rather then a ballad
which your mind will want to move slowly to. Make sure to warm water and set a bag of
tea to steep, a tea which will energize you or fill a tall glass with ice water. Magical
cleaning is hard work and I am always thirsty.

Let’s start with the vacuum, some people feel you need to start with a clean bag each time.
I am not one of those people, since intent is what is most important, and land fills do not
need any more waists, I can not see wasting a partly filled back. I have been known to add
a bit of incense into the bag before I start vacuuming, incense which fits my mood.

Now let’s talk about the broom, I do have a kitchen broom and I also have a broom sitting
outside of my front door. There is also a small broom I keep in my trunk of quickie ritual
supplies for sweeping negative energies away. It is with his small broom I sprinkle
scented oil on and sweep through my home if I feel there is something hanging in the air
and I want it gone now and quickly. As I use this oil scented broom, I chant a short rhyme
over and over focusing my mind to get rid of the unwanted in my home.





Once the floors, chairs, sofa, and corners of the floor and ceiling are all vacuumed, it is
time to take out your mop. I like to use green house hold cleaners for the many possible
ways of cleaning, and some of them come pre-scented. Personally I prefer something with
a slight lemon scent, but what ever scent you like, will work just as well. To this bucket of
water I add about a table’s spoon of sea salt. Salt left on wooden floors or on carpets can
damage them; and so, I use this way to salt my home rather than take a chance of ruining
my possessions. I always start at the top and work down; hitting everything I can reach
from the tops of the door frames to the window sills. I have a chair rail through much of
my house and so I make sure to clean that as well. Once you have finished with the rag it
is time for the floors. Use the same bucket of hot water with the dab of salt in it to wash
your floors.

Once this is done take a moment sit in your favorite room, take a sip of your drink and
then close your eyes. Once you are breathing slow and deep, send out your mental feelers
to see how well the energy is flowing in your home. If there seems to still be places which
are in need, open your eyes and attend to these areas.

I don’t know about you but I tend to have spots in my home where “Stuff” just gathers.
You know like a draw where everything has just been tossed into, or a pile of old news
papers. Perhaps you have clothing you had every intention of taking to be recycled and
yet there it still sits. Take the time to sort through that draw, organizing, tossing out and
reclaiming it, take care of the old news papers, and put the clothing to be recycled into
your car to take when you are finished with cleaning. Don’t feel bad if you suddenly
remember you missed something, maybe it is the ceiling fan over head, or the top of the
frig. You will never get everything, but doing a magical cleaning once a month will
drastically reduce the negative energy in your home and mind. I like to clean my house
just after the New Moon for new beginnings.

Now sit again, take another sip, if the energy in your house flows smoothly, you are ready
to continue.

Put away your cleaning supplies and gather together a red votive candle, white candle, a
bowl of clean water, and a bit of sea salt. If you wish you may start with this small ritual,
before cleaning or you can end with something like it. If weather permits and you have
not yet done so, open all the windows letting the fresh air into your home. Take a moment
to inhale the breezes as they dance though your home. Enjoy all the clean scents from
green and growing to moist soil after a cleansing rain fall.

There are many ways to do a magical cleaning of your house, and this little ritual is just
one of many ways. Be creative and pick one which fits you, as it is your intent not mine
which will change the vibrations of your home. It is a good thing to use the same ritual
every time, re-enforcing in your mind what you are doing.




The house seems clean and now you are ready to do your magical cleansing ritual. There
are several possibilities, choose one which appeals to you and repeat it regularly to ensure
your household is good to go.

In your favorite room assemble the dish of salt, incense and burner, 1 white candle, one
red votive candle and a cloth to use as an alter cloth. On the alter cloth, place the dish of
salt in the North, the incense and burner in the East, the dish of water in the West and
lastly the white candle in the middle. The white candle is the center candle from which
everything will be lit.

Light the center white candle. From this light your incense and red votive candle. Now
close your eyes and try to tune into the energies of your home. You can hear the sound of
your clock ticking, perhaps a child’s fussing or giggling, thoughts rush into your mind,
don’t worry, take note of them and let them go. Breathe.

When you are ready lift the center candle and three times round move it over the tools

you have gathered and say something like this;

Tools of each element, I charge you (First turn with the candle)

To sweep clean my home, heart and mind too. (Second turn of the candle)

This is my will, So Mote It Be! (Third turn of the candle)

With the dish of salt in hand, walk towards the east, moving counter clockwise through
your house. If you feel there is a spot which needs a dab of salt toss a pinch there. Each
time you offer the dab of salt say something like this;

This house has been cleansed by the power of the earth,

Within each room there shall now be mirth.

Once you return to the table replace the dish of salt and lift the incense burner. Walk again
towards the east, going counter clock wise. Follow the same route you used when you
walked with the dish of salt, envisioning the incense smoke melting away the negative
energies in your home.

As the smoke wafts through the rooms, say something like this;

This house has been cleansed by the power of Air,

Within each room comes all that is fair.




When you are again at the table where your tools lie, set down the incense burner and
take up the red votive candle. Follow the same route as you did the two times before.
Envision the fire burning away the negativity, while saying;

This house has been cleansed by the power of Fire,

Within each room as is my desire.

When you are again at the table where your tools lie, set the red votive candle down and
take up the bowl of fresh water. Follow the same route as you did the two times before.
Envisioning the water washing away the last of the negativity as you sprinkle some of the
water in spots you feel still need help, while saying;

This house has been cleansed by the power of Water,

With in each room I welcome the Crone, Mother and her Daughter.

When you are again at the table where your tools lie, set down the bowl of water down
and close your eyes. Reach out again with your mind, if the vibrations of your home are
not satisfactory to you, repeat the ritual.

When you are finished, remember to close any open windows, and if possible let the
candle burn and incense it’s self out.

The journey of water as it flows upon the earth can be a mirror of our own paths through
life. Water begins its residence on earth as it falls from the sky or melts from ice and
streams down a mountain into a tributary or stream. In the same way, we come into the
world and begin our lives on earth. Like a river that flows within the confines of its banks,
we are born with certain defining characteristics that govern our identi ty. We are born in a
specific time and place, within a specific family, and with certain gifts and challenges.
Within these parameters, we move through life, encountering many twists, turns, and
obstacles along the way just as a river flows.

Water is a great teacher that shows us how to move through the world with grace, ease,
determination, and humility. When a river breaks at a waterfall, it gains energy and
moves on, as we encounter our own waterfalls, we may fall hard but we always keep
moving on. Water can inspire us to not become rigid with fear or cling to what's familiar.
Water is brave and does not waste time clinging to its past, but flows onward without
looking back. At the same time, when there is a hole to be filled, water does not run away
from it in fear of the dark; instead, water humbly and bravely fills the empty space. In the
same way, we can face the dark moments of our life rather than run away from them.

Eventually, a river will empty into the sea. Water does not hold back from joining with a
larger body, nor does it fear a loss of identity or control. It gracefully and humbly tumbles
into the vastness by contributing its energy and merging without resistance. Each time we
move beyond our individual egos to become part of something bigger, we can try our best
to follow the lead of the river.

The Sun Is Always Shining
Remember the Sun

There are times when gloom or darkness causes us to momentarily lose sight of the light.
Although it is at these times when the thought of the sun can help us. Its warm, glowing
rays brighten even our thoughts, and it's good to remember that despite appearances the
sun is shining right now. We may not be able to see it at this very moment, but if clouds
block our view, they are only filtering the sun's light temporarily. If darkness has fallen,
we know that the sun is still shining at this very moment somewhere not too far away,
and it's only a matter of time before it will shine on us again.

When we remember that the sun is still shining, we know that things are still in motion in
the universe. Even if life feels like it is at a standstill, sometimes all we need to do is have
faith and wait for the time when everything is in its perfect place. Or we can we can
choose to follow the cues of the sun and continue doing our work and shining our light,
even when we can't yet see results. In doing so we exercise our patience, making sure we
are prepared when opportunity knocks and all other elements are in their right and
perfect places.

The sun also reminds us that our own shining truth is never extinguished. Our light
shines within us at all times, no matter what else occurs around us. Though the sun gives
us daily proof of its existence, sometimes our belief in our own light requires more time. If
we think back, however, we can find moments when it showed itself and trust that we
will see it again. Like the sun, our light is the energy that connects us to the movements of
the universe and the cycles of life and is present at all times, whether we feel its glow or
not.

I wondered upon a little girl crying one day Her tears were like raindrops streaming
down her face.
I wanted to say something to her. But the look on her face told me different.
It was more than just pain on her face...... there was hurt there too.
I wanted to put my arms around her and just hold her.
I wanted to take her pain and hurt into my own heart. For it hurt me so to see her crying
like this. And I wondered...can I even begin to bare her pain?
Whatever was wrong I knew it was just too much for her to bare alone. But there she
was.....alone and crying.
Finally I said something to her. But she never looked up. It was almost like she was afraid
to look me in the eyes.
But then my eyes begin to see bruises and marks on this little girl. The vile taste in my
throat sickened me as I saw dried blood on her dress.. To seek and destroy was my first
instinct. To hold and to protect were of equal response.
My mind was a mass of confusion....What should I do?
So many thoughts about this little girl went racing through my mind. But what one
thought would even begin to erase the hurt she was feeling now?
Could it be the thought that there is so much evil in the world. And that sometimes the
innocent are caught up in it and whatever happened was not her fault.
My mind questions.....where were her Angels...... her protectors?
Then I got to thinking...well.....her Angels are there with her now to strengthen her. To see
she gets through this better than before. Everything happens for a reason......and though at
the time we may not understand the why of it. We do become stronger in different areas
of our lives because of it. And that is why we have Angels. They give us the strength we
need and see to it that our lives become better because of the pain we have to
bear.......Alone.

Be Like The Earth

Obstacles can arise from good as well as bad circumstances, but they should never deter
or overpower you. Be like the earth, which supports all living
creatures indiscriminately, without distinguishing good from bad. The
earth is simply there. Your practice should be strengthened by the
difficult situations you encounter, just as a bonfire in a strong wind
is not blown out, but blazes even brighter.

Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, “In Transition” (Winter 1991)

-------------------------------------------------

"Whether one believes in a religion or not, and whether one believes in rebirth or not,
there isn't anyone who doesn't appreciate kindness and compassion."

~His Holiness the Dalai Lama


-------------------------------------------------

Watering The Plants

Watering the plants once in a while just to keep them from dying is how we treat others
and ourselves when we become lost in doing or the future. We offer just
enough attention to get by. Spend some time here, in the now. Fertilize
yourself and others with loving presence.

A new part of the little angel story, you can find the other parts into my blogs
The little Angel in the world of creation


Since the gate of light opens, the little Angel feel really home again. For so long she has
wait for that moment, to be connected again with her home world. For so long she have
wait until the moment that the two world become one again, and she can started with
creation of the new world. For so many eons she had only plant seeds in all the different
timelines that she has visit, and now she saw and feels the results of it.


Things changed fast in her new world, and she recognised more and more things. No
longer she needed to travel any longer to the inside world to feel home, also around her
she recognised now the things. That what she always called the inside and outside world
has becomes the new world.


On some days she just look back together with her dragon on the travels they have make
in the past, and on the worlds they visit together. The first world were they looking to is
the world of colours and music. Both have always love it to create new things with colours
and using music for bringing the messages of the home world to there brothers and
sisters. They have loved it, to play with their own colours, to changed them, just with their
thoughts and feelings. But they never saw that it was the way they create all the worlds
that they visit.


The world of creation, just a part that they forget in all the travels they have make. The
world were all things begins. A world were feelings come together with thoughts, and
were the creation get his form. The world were all life started, were all shapes started
before the shapes arrives into the land of mirrors and words.







The world of words, was always the most difficult world for the Little Angel. It was
difficult to understand the meaning that others gives to the shapes they saw their. It was
difficult to understand that they separate all shapes and gives all parts a new name, a new
word with again a new meaning. The little Angel saw that it was just the way the world of
dualism was created. A world with many mirrors who just reflect into the outside what
was happening into the inside. A world with many dimensions, worlds into worlds,
separated by many walls of beliefs and words, separated by emotions and thoughts. A
world were many lost the memories of who and what they really are. Were many forget
their own creations of them selves Were many forget their own power of creation, and just
gives their power away to others in many ways.


The little Angel and her Dragon looks back to all the personalities they were in that world
for eons, the games they play together and with others, but after all they just look to all
things they have created until now. And just the things they really loved, will find a home
into their new world.

Shadow

When every minute of your thoughts are on the one you Love..
When all that goes around you Involves this person in your thoughts..
When you never forget anything the other has ever done for you..
When you wake up and go to sleep thinking of this person..
When you would give all you had for this person..
When nothing seems right without this person around..
When you hold all this person has givin very dear..
When your memories always consist with the person in them..
When there is never a minute this person doesn’t cross your mind..
When all you need is this persons Love to hold you over..
When material items become useless compared to this persons Love..
When your heart feels every pulse and the others ups and downs
When there are no definitions for the kind of Love you hold..
When this Love is indescribable and not easily understood..
With great understanding of one another although very different..
When you find the word Love alone doesn’t even describe the true feelings you have..
And when it covers all your Heart Soul and Mind..
With all this I know my Love for Breeze is
Definitely Unmistakable.
Love you Breeze

Welcome beautiful children! I am the mysterious Archangel Raziel or so is noted. I come
today to speak through this child on a few areas that I work with and where I can help
you. What I would like to help you with is your manifestations and dealing with personal
issues.
A manifestation is like a prayer, and for some it is a prayer. The difference is in your
words. Many of you pray, with words, "I wish, I want, I ask etc,". When using
manifestations, you put yourself in the place of already having what it is you are asking
for. Intead of telling the Universe, God or whomever you pray to what it is you want, you
imagine, visualize already achieving what it is you are seeking. As you visualize or
imagine bring what you see into words, address to who you pray to, but say, I am seeing
myself surrounded by the beauty of nature, I see my family and me living more
comfortably, I am seeing myself living happily, with joy, bliss and harmony with a loved
one, etc. Picture it as already have happened. That is what your day dreams are dear ones,
they are visual manifestations, not silly nonsense. It is advisable to work on whatever it is
you wish to manifest as often as possible. This child does hers every night, as part of her
routine. We do hear you dear ones, we hear you crystal clear. When you do visualize then
make what you see verbal, make sure dear ones the words, and intent come from your
heart. What you ask for is for the purest of good and intent.
Manifestations can be used when dealing with personal issues that have a lot of
negativity. But before you do it is a good idea to address those issues. What is it that is
causing unease you need to ask yourself. What is it that is holding you back from
becoming all that you can is another. These are exampled dear souls. I am positive you are
creative enough to think of questions for yourself to answer. When you question, question
with your heart. The answers will not come like someone standing next to you telling you,
but the answers will also come from your heart. All that self-doubt is your EGO and you
need to learn to ignore your EGO that causes so much self-doubt which ends up causing
you to assume and possibly judge.




All the personal issues you have dealt with and are dealing with now can be looked as
lessons, as that is really what they are. They are lessons on how you cope, how you
manage patience, ability maintain balance on all levels or not, and how personal you take
the situation. I have to admit there are many that are very serious and can cause set back
for many dear souls. But the quicker you can see the lessons and accept them, then you
can move on and leave the pain behind. These lessons prepare you for events that haven`t
happened yet. What you have learned from past situations that were difficult, are yours
and they can be like personal badges of success. Some lessons I have also witnessed go
through a repetitive cycle. That only means the lesson hasn`t been learned again and the
situation will repeat itself until that `light bulb` goes off and the person recognizes the
cycle, and goes through steps to stop it from happening again.

I can help you ease these personal issues. I can help guide you to other solutions and to
see what is there for you to see. Some of the lessons that have been learned by some of you
dear children required a major life change. What I mean by major life change, is a change
of jobs, social network, removal of negative influences, becoming more intune to who you
are, etc. These are big changes and takes courage to make these changes happen. Rome
was not built in a day and the changes that take place that assists you to become more
spiritually minded will take time also. This is when that big word, PATIENCE comes in. I
will guide you dear ones, never worry about that. You are not alone on this journey of
self-discovery. There are many close by willing to help if you only ask. Remember we
cannot physically intervene, but we will help guide you to the choices you are to make.

It was a pleasure to speak to you today and I am looking forward to more of you calling to
me for guidance and assistance.

This message today includes a rainbow of light and love that comes from my
unconditional heart that radiates to you.

Archangel Raziel

Let Peace Prevail In This World.......

When you look for peace
then the peace lies within you
When you search for peace
then it is not hard to find
When you want to keep peace alive
then you allow white doves to fly over you
When you make peace with others
then the whole world live in your heart
When you let peace be in the world
then you live in wonderful world
When you allow peace flow around the world
then your hateness will go and love will flow
When you open the door for peace
then peace welcome to your lives.
Let the peace prevail in our wonderful world

Shadow's Reach Mead
Posted by Storm ShadowBane





Shadow's Reach Mead

In a sterile five gallon Primary, add approx. 4 1/4 gallons of clear,
cool potable water. Spring water is best, but if your tap water is
drinkable, it will suffice.
Next add 18 lbs. of pure Clover honey. Warming the honey in hot
water makes it easier to pour. Wash 3 packs of Sun-maid
Raisins and 3 whole Cutie oranges. There is no need to sterilize
fruit, just use hot water. Next, cut off any green pieces of the
oranges and cut into quarters.
Stir the Primary until the honey darkens the water. If you have a
mixer that will reach half-way down the primary, stir it until the mix
foams. Add the oranges and the raisins. The mix will have a sweet,
fruity smell if you have it stirred sufficiently. If you wish to add a
crushed Camden tablet to sterilize the mix, that is, kill all the wild
yeast, you must wait 24 hours before adding your yeast. I seldom
use it. However, I do sterilize my hands and all the implements. You
must be sure to sterilize your Primary, that is the container you start
the fermentation process in, and everything that touches your
ingredients. I didn't once and had to throw away a small gallon batch
of plum wine. It smelled so bad, I thought my sewer had backed up.
I use Easy-Clean or 1 tablespoon of unscented Clorox bleach in a
gallon of water. The Easy-Clean directions say you don't have to
rinse, but I do anyway. Obviously, with the Clorox, you need to rinse
until you can't smell it anymore.

I use Red Star as my fermenting yeast. It has given great results
and it is inexpensive. Take a Solo cup and half fill it with warm, not
hot, water. If it feels slightly warmer than your skin, then is about right.
Stir in one pack of the yeast. Stir it until all the yeast goes into
suspension. Don't leave lumps as it interferes with the "proofing"
of the yeast.
There are several odd terms used when dealing with beers, wines
and meads. "Proofing" means to start the yeast in warm water to
make it "prove" that it is ready. Sorry, I didn't make up terms.






In about 15 to 20 minutes, the yeast will almost be foaming in the
water. Stir the Primary one more time, just to get the liquid moving,
then slowly pour in your "proved" yeast. Cover your Primary and
install your airlock also called a "bubbler". In as little as an hour,
the CO2 produced by the yeast will begin moving, i.e., bubbling
through the airlock. If it hasn't started working in 24 hours, you have
done something wrong.

I once put in the yeast too soon after using the Camden, and it
killed it. Luckily, adding another pack after 24 hours had
passed, started the process.

Now comes the hard part, the waiting. I try to let the fermentation
run for at least a week. You will then have an alcoholic beverage.
It will be quite "green" (another brewing term) and not ready for
consumption. You can leave it longer if you can stand the wait.

When the bubbling has slowed, (or your patience has ended)
you can "Rack" it. That is, move it to another container. This is
done to get the mead away from any sediment that has collected
in the bottom of the Primary.

I use five, 1 gallon glass "carboys", that is glass gallon jugs.
Then, instead of bubblers on each carboy, I use a party balloon,
stretched over the mouth of the jug. After the balloons begin to
inflate, I take a small needle and poke a hole in the balloon.
Note that I say FIVE carboys. You will fill them all and have a small
amount left over. The extra ingredients will more than make up
for the less than five gallons of water you put in.

Then you have to let the yeast continue to work for another week,
at least. I told you the patience is the hard part.
When the balloons start to to become less inflated, in about two
weeks, comes the first fun part: The tasting and flavoring of the
mead. I have five favorites: Apple Pie, Chocolate Cake, Blueberry
Muffin, Wild Cherry Tart and Strawberry Slam.
The flavorings are a trade secret.

Enjoy!!!!

Every day is lovely in my gardening realm,but today serendipity and the universe graced
me.Since today dawned warm and clear finally I headed off to work the last thing I
grabbed leaving the house was my camera thinking I might happen upon a stray blossom
to show you. I was at a clients house picking up branches and wind debris when I felt
something watching me thinking it was my son I stopped what I was doing.As I
straightened up I noticed what "at a distance"appeared to be a cluster of dead leaves
caught in the branches of a small Hemlock I was standing about 4 ft from.Thinking I
would pluck it out I took a step in that direction.I was mid step when I realized it had
eyes!!!!!!


I paused thinking is that a kitten ,then took another step and was
breathless !
It was akin to being transported through a portal and was allowed a
rare glimpse of all I hold near and dear lol.







Every so slowly I pulled out my camera and
whispered I just wanted proof of my tale,ever
so slowly I danced around the little tree
clicking away thinking to myself just one
good shot please!
It was very surreal Its not like I just got a
glimpse of him this little feller sat through a
frakin photo session .He was not in duress
,unalarmed ,alert yet not fearful and studied
me as thoroughly and thoughtfully as I
studied him .Never as a gardener or a witch
have I had such a very close and prolonged
encounter with an owl.
Im fairly certain at this point it was thinking
human how many damned pics do you want!




After I was satisfied I maybe ,hopefully succeeded in getting a good pic I eased away.Sometimes
the most wonderful things are right there in front of you watching you just need to stop and look
to see them.......
Eastern Screech-Owl Our smallest breeding owl, the Eastern Screech-Owl (Otus asio),
is scarcely larger than a Blue Jay and is named for two distinctive calls that carry great
distances in still night air. One call is a high-pitched descending whinny that would fit
right into the soundtrack of a Hollywood horror flick; the other is a constant warbling
tone that can be reproduced, albeit indelicately, by tilting back your head and
whistling with just the right amount of saliva on your tongue. Experienced birders
carry a tape of this call or learn to imitate it because it seems irresistible to songbirds
that come to investigate. Screech-Owls live in coniferous woods and occur in two color
phases; in the Piedmont and mountains they tend to have rusty plumage, while eastern
birds are most often gray. Their yellow eyes and ear tufts make them look like
miniature versions of the Great Horned Owl. Native Northwest coast Kwagulth people
believed that owls represented both a deceased person and their newly-released soul.
The Kwakiutl Indians were convinced that Owls were the souls of people and should
therefore not be harmed, for when an Owl was killed the person to whom the soul
belonged would also die. To the Mojave Indians of Arizona, one would become an Owl
after death, this being and interim stage before becoming a water beetle, and ultimately
pure air. Among the Sioux, Hin-Han the owl guards the entrance to the Milky Way
over which the souls of the dead must pass to reach the spirit land.



In 4 years many have came and gone. One thing we
know is when they do spend time at the forest they
will leave each day with a clearer perception for
themselves and build confidence to take control of
their own lives in this chaotic World we Live in. We
ourselves are confident in each of our task in Sharing ,
expressing true knowledge and not leaving anyone
hanging or lost on their search they have every
opportunity to Utilize their gifts at it’s maximum
potential from the power within themselves they learn
to Trust… Shadow

IN TUNE WITH MOTHER NATURE
Posted by ¿·¡X·¸ ƷBЯ££Z£ ¿·¡X·¸Ʒ on April 16, 2009





If you listen for the songbirds
As they greet the summer sun,
And love the way the wind can make
The trees sings just for fun;
If you like to hear the ocean
As it drums upon the shore,
And imagine all the whales out there,
And hope they'll sing some more;
If you think of all the animals
As players in a band,
Each with a lovely tune to play,
All needed on the land;
And know that as a boy or girl
A woman or a man
You have a vital role to play
In Mother Nature's plan;
If you honor every living thing
As a part of nature's treasure
You're in tune with Mother Nature
So let's all sing her song together.




LIGHT IS
Posted by ¿·¡X·¸ ƷBЯ££Z£ ¿·¡X·¸Ʒ on April 21, 2009


Light is the breaking of dawn
Light is the load when you are just born
Light is a place without any fear
Light is when your lover is near
Light is a heart that's open and free
Light is a place where truth you can see
Light is a feeling that's good
Light is when everything's clear, understood
Light is the absence of dark
Light is a summer picnic in a beautiful park
Light is just simply walking on air
Light is what makes the shine in her hair
Light is what warms and what feeds
Light is not having any more needs
Light is a magical feeling inside
Light is the side of the street to reside
Light is always and always will be
Light is what joins us, him, you and me
Light Is.

As air becomes the medium
for light when the sun rises
Posted by Rev. Carol A. Ingle (Raven)



As air becomes the medium for light when the sun rises

As air becomes the medium for light when the sun rises,
And as wax melts from the heat of fire,
So the soul drawn to that light is resplendent,
Feels self melt away,
Its will and actions no longer its own.
So clear is the imprint of God and Goddess
That the soul, conquered, is conqueror;
Annihilated, it lives in triumph.

What happens to the drop of wine
That you pour into the sea?
Does it remain itself, unchanged?
It is as if it never existed.
So it is with the soul: Love drinks it in,
It is united with Truth,
Its old nature fades away,
It is no longer master of itself.

The soul wills and yet does not will:
Its will belongs to Another.
It has eyes only for this beauty;
It no longer seeks to possess, as was its wont --
It lacks the strength to possess such sweetness.
The base of this highest of peaks
Is founded on nichil,
Shaped nothingness, made one with the Lord and Lady.

When you look at the World you see many who feed and read into the negative and
drama aspects of what’s going on and love to spread it around as of pending disaster or
destruction. allot is possible but nothing written in stone and science has been wrong
many times. What one should do is look to what happy life is like where everyone
embellishes happiness and no worry and know all will be fine.

I don’t understand why this is so hard.. maybe because we cant see into the future but yet
we feed what doomsdayers put out and spread it..only giving energy to that.
but not give energy to a more pleasant future even as bleek as things may seem today..that
is how it still lives and survives by people putting it out there as dire warnings a must to
hide or prepare for a worst of events. Why is this done is it just so people can be prepared
for any event that can happen at anytime? can one say I see a bright future and all will be
fine and beautiful or is that to boring for some. I have wondered what people would
actually do if there was no drama or fear enducing events to take place which most are
predicted by those invisionaries who have been right on some things but not all..I would
almost bet you can guess an event to happen and it happens..so why not give that energy
to something positive progressive for all and future generations. why do people like
drama and hype..is it excitement a buzz adrenaline rush.
this reminds me of those who wish so bad for an event to take place so they are removed
from this planet at the sake of another’s will.

When they can simply say all will be fine..people don’t realize if they put as much energy
into this instead of fear mongers progression would manifest..it depends on what energy
the people decide to feed into.. is so many now feeding into so much hype that I am not
sure why. I use to say being aware was one thing but being in fear of it is another ..dont
fear. our minds as a collective can make wonderous changes why is it so hard for so many
to go that way but instead continue to feed drama..?

thus keeping that digressive energy alive..yes things are happening but is due to previous
feed and not knowing..but now we know we have the power to make change ..trust in
it..use it ..believe in yourself and have confidence that you can do anything and all
together we can make amazing changes from what we know now..we are at a very critical
and gifted point to make these changes if we concentrate on the right things and not the
drama . If you feed drama or follow in fear you are only feeding that in this world
allowing those things we see now to continue ..don’t let that be on your concious..be
confident in yourself you can make change.

much peace

Many of us have dreams some symbols, visions,signs of some kind and some have
weird dreams. I just want to remind before trying to sort out the dream is to think back to
what you have done in recent days or watched on TV or Movies..allot can play into our
dreams and is one reason I stopped watching TV for over 4 years now I found more clarity
in my gifts then before ..limiting access to subliminals.

So when it comes to off the wall dreams that dont make sense most of time they can mean
something a million miles from what dream showed you and is hard to decipher.
way some do like me is will have a dream and pick up on important parts..or parts that
seemed more highlited and if a reoccuring dream happens take what I can get from that
and see if it coincides with previous. but never freek out on a weird dream some can be
subliminal and have ran into many who forget a show they watched or something in it
that clicked with their concious and stuck with them and yes can mani fest in the dreams..

I cant ask you to stop watching TV as much as it helped me I can vouch for that..but
allways remember back to anything that may have hit you in a Movie or saw at store or
TV.

Hopefully you can clear your dreams for the messages we do receive and its meanings
even mine take time but we are givin what is needed at that time.

Much peace
Shadow




Spring is a time for new beginnings. It’s the perfect time to clean out your closets and
get rid of unwanted clutter, but how about your body? Why not incorporate some super
nutritious, easy and healthy cleansing juice recipes into your daily regimen? Nature has
provided us with some pretty amazing super foods to help with our detoxification
processes including lemons, leafy greens, papaya and fermented foods (if you’re brave
enough). There is hardly any digestive work needed to process raw, enzyme active liquid
so these juices gets into the system quickly. Our body is constantly cleansing itself
through our breathing and elimination processes. One of the most important reasons
for juicing is to cleanse the liver. So why not help yourself out by improving the
functionality of this important organ with some great tasting beverages? Just remember
to use fresh fruits and veggies as substituting canned or frozen will diminish any
health benefits. You should also be warned that you may experience some unpleasant
symptoms or side effects such as headaches, moodiness, tiredness and general aches
and pains. This just means that it’s working so be gentle with yourself.
*Although a juicer is recommended, a blender can be used. Your drink will just turn
out much thicker.
Citrus Sunrise Drink Berry Delightful Drink
2 large pink grapefruits 2 green apples
1 orange 2 yellow pears
½ small lemon 1/3 cup blueberries
¼ small lime ¼ cup fresh cranberries
½ cup chopped papaya 3 strawberries

Glorious Greens Drink Golden Goddess Drink

½ cup packed Romaine leaves 1 large golden beet
1/3 cup packed arugula leaves 2 large stalks celery
¼ cup chopped watercress ¼ cup chopped cilantro
3 large carrots
½ small lemon
½” knob of fresh ginger root

Pineapple Drink Cucumber Apple Mint Drink
2 cups chopped pineapple 1 medium peeled cucumber
3 celery sticks 2 green apples
1” knob of fresh ginger root 2 sprigs fresh mint leaves

Pull up the blinds, push back the curtains and open up the windows. Take a deep
breath of fresh air and gaze out at the freshness and newness of Spring. Heck…put on
your shoes and head outside for a walk. Notice the flowers budding, baby birds
chirping, icicles melting and puddles forming. Spring is a delight to all the senses
including that of taste. Soon the asparagus, fiddlehead ferns and chives and other
seasonal greens will be growing in your garden or abundant in your supermarket
produce department. Here is a great crustless asparagus spinach quiche recipe to
embrace the change of season and tantalize your “taste” buds.
Ingredients

1/2 lb asparagus, rinsed and stems removed
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp chives, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups packed fresh spinach, rinsed, dried and chopped
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup half and half
1 cup grated Gruyere cheese, divided
1/2 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Directions
 Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
 Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add the asparagus and blanch for a minute or two. Remove
from the water and set aside.
 Heat the oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the shallots and garlic, cooking until
softened. Add the spinach and cook until it is wilted, but still green—just a couple of minutes.
 In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the eggs and half and half. Add 1/2 cup of the shredded cheese
as well as the nutmeg, salt, and pepper.
 In an 8x8” cake pan, evenly distribute the spinach/shallot/garlic mixture over the bottom. Pour in the
egg mixture, slightly stirring to make sure everything’s well-distributed. Arrange the asparagus across
the top and top with the remaining 1/2 cup of cheese.
 Place the quiche in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, until a nice golden brown.
 Allow to cool for about 10 minutes before serving.

It's been four years since the forest was up and running and in that
time the site has grown so much. I've seen a lot and learned a lot since
joining almost four years ago and I have some people that will ask me
what the forest means to me. I simply tell them that the Forest means
great deal to me because there is a lot to learn from the site as well as
it's like a safe haven for me and that I can talk to others who have the
same type of "gifts" that I do and I feel like I can talk to them about
anything. The Forest is like my "home". Breeze and Shadow have
done a great job with the site and running it as well. We have a team
that I'm thrilled to be a part of. The members and team have been
there for me through everything I've gone through since I've been a
member. I have seen many come and go but through it all the forest is
still standing tall. May the forest have many more years as a site
Many Blessings

The physical environment is one of great density. To create the solid moments great
attention is paid to the intensity necessary to create it all.

It is often not a comfortable place for those with a finer vibration. Many feel out of place in
such a wild territory such as physical. Wondering in fact, why they would make such a
decision to be here at all.

In the eternal energy there are times where more evolved healing energies are called upon
to be of service. Incarnating in a reality where their higher vibration can help balance the
density is the primary reason.

It is a time of great movement in the linear, so there is an abundant amount of souls who
have made the decision to be here.

Once in the form, however, there can be an occurrence of the dramatic that can cause
complete memory to escape those who have volunteered. Knowing on some level they
need to be here, but for what, remains a big question.

To find the answer, attempt to settle quietly into your energy. Block out the chitter chatter
of the day and remember why.

Balancing energy in this environment is a big endeavor. There are a lot of energies like
yourself that are awakening to their purpose.

Lending your ability to balance energy is a huge undertaking, but you would not have
come here without the desire to do it.

Focus. Meditate. Be one with your soulful energy. It is what you came here for.

The physical reality wil rebound positively with your endeavors. Yes. Your energy is
important. Align. Send the healing. It is your purpose this time around.

1 stick ( 1/2 cup) butter
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 cup milk
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 quarts whole strawberries, capped and washed
4 ounces cream cheese, cut in small pieces


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter and pour into a 9-by-13-inch glass baking dish. In
a small bowl, mix together the egg, milk, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Pour
directly over the butter in the baking dish, but do not stir.

Add the strawberries, arranging in a single layer as much as possible. Sprinkle cream
cheese pieces over strawberries. Place in preheated oven and bake for 45 minutes, or until
top is golden brown and edges are bubbling. (Crust rises up and around the fruit, but fruit
will still peek out of top.
