Love Nature and Magic

This is a story of the way nature heals. This is a story of what love can do. And this is a story of magic.  I was having a very rough day and I was in tears. My husband knows that the beach is everything to me. It was the end of a long day and we were both tired. He said “Come on I’ll drive you to the beach.”

The moment we got there the dolphins arrived and they were very close to the shore. We rushed over to where they were and I was immediately filled with such joy. We watched as they swam out to sea and marveled at how this happened the moment we arrived. I wish I had time to get my camera to capture the moment but it happened just as we placed our things on the sand.

As soon as we got into the water to swim I turned and saw the most beautiful rainbow and then we noticed there were two.  Double Rainbow.

Then I felt something under my feet and reached down to find a rock in the shape of a heart.

I took some pictures of the beauty that was happening all around us. Sometimes the pictures come out blurry for no reason but that is when the magic shows up.

Nature is the healing balm. Love took me out of my sorrow and brought me to the sea. Magic is everywhere.

I am blessed.

Love Manifested

IMG_8087

Last night I was doing what I love most in the world, swimming in the sea. I feel the happiest, the most me when I am one with the sea. I belong there, I come from there and I always must live close to this place that nurtures me like no other. I have had many magical experiences by the sea. I could write a book about them all. This is one that is most dear to my heart.

There are times when I just get that nudge to bring my camera and so I did as I packed my bag and headed for the beach last night. It was a gorgeous swim with my sister mermaid friend which makes it all the better. The swim was glorious with a sunset to match. It was our little piece of heaven on earth.

I snapped away at the cloud formations that were rising out of the sea making it look like a heavenly city of clouds. We watched as the sun set and I took some more pictures with the feeling that something was going to show up. Now for the story….

Sally and I were best friends since grammar school. I could write another book about all our hilarious and mystical experiences together. When she was going through chemo she would come and stay with me and we would go to the sea and swim. We would stand holding hands and we would pray together. We would dream that she would be well and that we would continue our wonderful adventures and grow old together.

The very last time she came we stood in the water, closed our eyes, breathed a deep breath and prayed. With my eyes closed I began to see the most magnificent heart. It was fuchsia pink and bright green. I told her what I was seeing. She gasped and said she was seeing it too, exactly as I described it. This went on for a long, long time.

When we got home Sally sat down at the dining room table and proceeded to draw in vibrant color the exact heart we both had seen. She was an artist and had brought her supplies with her. Can you imagine having that kind of confirmation! I wish I had that drawing but she took it home with her however I can see it always in my mind and in my heart.

Back to last night. I had been talking about Sally while we were swimming. When we got out and were sitting watching the water and the sky I was thinking of the magic that happened that day with her and what took place after. After that day when we held hands and saw the same exact heart together, every time I went to the beach I would see with my own physical eyes hearts manifesting. They would appear in the water mostly, riding the waves. Once there was a couple next to me and the man was down on one knee proposing and I could see a heart glowing in between them!

I was thinking of all of this while snapping pictures of the sun setting. And there it is ….love manifested….a beautiful heart in the sky!

Hello my darling Soul Sister Sally! I love you.

My Enchanted Girl ~ for my daughter Kate

482600_10200399352898595_1818842035_n

my enchanted girl lives among the fairies
and my enchanted girl lives beneath the sea
at night the mermaids comb her hair
and the fairies beckon to her
they urge her never to forget
the wonders that she knows
so the fairies twirl and dance and sing
and the mermaids gently guide her
they sprinkle magic in her eyes
and whisper her true name
they only have one wish for her
that she will always know
that fairies dance behind her eyes
and mermaids kiss her lips
that she was crowned so long ago
the queen of sea and glen
yes my enchanted girl lives among the fairies
and my enchanted girl lives beneath the sea
and all who look upon her
may see within her eyes
the strength of ancient wisdom
and the light of the morning star
for she is blessed and known
throughout all space and time
for heaven shines upon her
enchanted girl of mine

As Women

susan sedon boulet

artist Susan Seddon Boulet

 

As women we bring forth a great vibration

we are one with the energy of the earth

and within us lies the radiance and power of the moon

the moon is our sister

she rises sweetly and when all is quiet

and bathes the world with a delicate and nurturing light

there are those of you who have awakened to her embrace

and connection to her

spend time with her

feel her energy resonate within you

draw her in with the breath

with complete intention 

there is much she will give you

as you acknowledge her

 

yes, we are the women of the moon and the sea

we are radiant and fluid

ever steady and ever moving

we are the mystery and the power

we are the wisdom of the ages 

we are here now to raise the consciousness of mankind

we turn with the tides and welcome the change

for we have waited long

and are bursting with truth and love 

we will grow in number

raising our voices

as they reach the heavens and shifts are created

from the sheer power of our feminine vibration 

 

come together and sing

for you will remember

the song of your birth

and you will remember your sisters

each and every one

 

the separation created by man

will no longer serve

as in unity

like so many who have come before

we glorify and sanctify

and bless ourselves and one another 

 

in the name of those who walked the earth

in the most holy divinity

we bow our heads and say

yes
