As I sit back and let nature takes its course, I find myself living in gratitude. September came and went with whirlwinds of “what am I’m going to do?”, to an amazing new opportunity. It’s mid October and I am now moving to Florida for the next 4 months to check it out and make extra money for my upcoming trip. My sister called and offered me a chance to check out Florida. Not only will that be awesome but I can continue to build a stronger bond with her. We are 12 years apart. So we didn’t really grow up with each other and never really saw each other that often throughout the years. Although living with her full time isn’t the ideal situation, it’s temporary. Which makes us both feel excited. The full moon october 13th was super ideal for me to release everything that no longer serves my greatest and highest good. I had a theta healing session in which we cleared out so much that was weighing me down. It was awesome. I wasn’t planning this but my date to leave is october 27th which also happens to be the new moon. New moons are all about new beginnings and putting out intentions and goals. I am super stoked! I will be driving to Florida from maine and taking my time. Visiting with my chickadee (granma) for several days, then to my aunt and uncles in South Carolina, whom I haven’t seen in over 2 decades. Then off to Jacksonville where I will see a good friend of mine whom I also haven’t seen in 2 decades. Then to my godfathers in central Florida. Then to my new home. I am really excited for this adventure. Who knows where it’ll take me and I’m grateful for not knowing. A new beginning to a brand new book. All old books are finished, closed and packed away.
After Labor Day, working so hard, I needed to get away. Labor day in York Beach is a big weekend for restaurant servers. It’s loud, crazy busy and riddled with people from out of town. It was a rough weekend for us. I needed a getaway.
I found that hiking by myself was the key to freedom of self. So I booked a hotel and off I went to North Conway. I left right after my lunch shift and drove up. Beautiful drive. I haven’t been there since I was a kid. I did a little research before before going there specifically. I found a spot where I could mine for crystals. I was sold and very excited to go play in the mountains and dirt.
I stayed at a hotel with a hot tub, because when travelling there is nothing like relaxing in a hot tub. I went out to eat and went back to the hotel where I just kicked back and relaxed. The next morning I ate breakfast and saw that it was raining lightly. That wasn’t going to stop me from my journey. I packed up my car and headed to the mountain.
I was driving down a very long dirt road and enjoyed being surrounded by all the trees. When I arrive, I was the only person there. So grateful.
I packed up my gear and headed in. It was quiet with the exception of the sound of my footsteps crackling over the forest floor. I kept a look out for anything out of the ordinary. It was about a mile or so in when I came upon the mining site.
You could see where people were mining. So I sat there on the ground for a bit and meditated. Then I asked my guides where I would find smokey quartz. I heard under the tree. Well I am surrounded by trees, so I stood up and felt the energy. I found a tree and carefully dug around the base. I did find a nice little piece of smokey quartz. I gently placed the dirt back around the base and thanked the tree for allowing me to do that.
I continued to move around the site and look for more beautiful minerals. I have no idea how long I was out there for but I sat down again and meditated before leaving and The way it was, the rain subsided and the sun came through the trees and landed directly on me. It was magical.
I packed up my gear and thanked the land once again and headed back to my car.
When I made it back to my car, I wanted to change my clothes before driving back 2 hours to get home. As I was covered in dirt. I begin to change and then I hear something. I quickly finish changing and I see a mini van coming down the road. It was a family with 3 kids.
I was so beyond grateful that my journey through the woods was solo with no one around. Universe knew that I needed that time alone. And now it was time for others to enjoy.
Overall, it was a very relaxing and fun getaway. I truly needed that. Quiet time away from people. I was at peace and ready to go back to work lighter, emotionally and spiritually.
I had quite the adventure today as this was my first hiking adventure since Sedona last September. I recorded myself several times to document this but all I could seem to focus on was the MOSQUITOS!!!!
Mind you I have never put myself in front of the camera intending to post, this was just for me, initially. Then I decided that I am going to put myself out there just because. So here I am.
I woke up in time to go to either yoga class, but deep down I couldn’t figure out which one I felt like going to. I really wanted to run my errands and I had to work at 4pm. So being that I just woke up and couldn’t make any decisions for myself first thing, I went to my pendulum to ask which class I am going to.
I wake it up and ask, it proceeds to tell me that I am not going to either. I ask are you just being intuitive, and the reply was yes. So I decided to run my errands. I get up shower and go.
As I drive to my first destination, I enjoy the music playing in my car and the sun that is shining bright through my sunroof. I feel as though I’m living heaven on earth. So peaceful and at ease.
I pull in and park my car and realize that I will still have time to get to the next yoga class when I am done. I get out of my car and smell some weird rubber burning smell. I look around and notice they are doing construction. But it didn’t seem as if it was that. I walk around to the other side of my car and didn’t smell anything. I retrace my steps to the drivers side again and stuck my nose in the tires to see if it was my car. Sure enough, it was my rear tire. I decided to go in and get what I needed and then come back and regroup.
When I came back outside I googled burning rubber smell in tire. It came up with all these things that were not something a new car owner would want to hear. So I immediately called the dealership and told them I don’t feel comfortable driving around in my car with whatever may be happening. Greg, was on the rcvg end and graciously got me within 15 mins.
As I sat on the bench outside of the dealership I began to realize that my pendulum knew. And as I pondered the intuitive aspect of myself and the pendulum, I see my first butterfly of the season. Blessed to witness nature and all of it’s creations.
Greg came out with the mechanic and told me that it was a slide that bound. So they loosened it up in the brake. Great, done. I go in to grab my keys and get the paperwork done and this little lady comes racing up to me…
“OMG, you bought my car!!! You know the color of that car is called sandy beach?”
I was slightly confused for a minute and then when she said that about the color I realized this is the previous owner, and how cool because I live on the beach. She begins to tell me how she named her car “GIGI” short for Great Granma. my jaw just about fell out of my skin, I named her Golden Goddess and my dad calls her GIGI for short.
I must mention what this lovely lady looked like. She’s a granma, wearing flip flops and yoga capri pants. She had a tank top on and a hot pink long cardigan and her hair was white, and dyed it purple.
I thought to myself, of course you were the previous owner…I am so grateful that it was this lovely funky woman. She was the sole owner until I purchased it. With less than 50k miles, she said don’t you just love her, we didn’t really go anywhere. She will take great care of you.
I asked her if I can take a picture of her with the car. She loved it. At our parting, I had a citrine crystal in my car and I felt I needed to give it to her. We hugged and we left each other with the greatest feeling. Literally made my day and hers.
Thank you so much Bobby, for approaching me. So grateful I met you, you have a beautiful soul and spirit!
My pendulum knew something was going to happen that I wouldn’t make it to yoga. And I am so glad this was the reason.
Today is mothers day and as I was driving to go pick up lunch for my mother and I, I notice how green everything is.
The scent of Earth permeated the air. The grass uncut in luscious greens. It is so beautiful I thought to myself. I saw a man cutting grass as I approached him and rolled down my window, just to take in the scent of fresh cut grass; which is my favorite. I wallow in it as I drive by breathing in deep.
The greenery is breathtaking and when you are somewhere that doesn’t have as much greenery you can really appreciate it when it comes to Spring. Everything is alive and growing after the cold winters of white.
I would like nothing more than not to work tonight and just sit in dirt and smell it. I went to the store to go buy my mom some flowers today and when I got out of the car I began walking on black mulch. It too smelled heavenly. I would have liked to just stand there for as long as time permitted to just take it in. I did stand there for a minute and took it in but I would have liked a little longer.
The scents of Spring are finally here. The blooming trees and plants are beginning to grow and it is majestic. There is nothing in the Universe quite like Spring. I am so beyond grateful to be able to witness this Spring here in Maine for the first time in about 20 years.
This is my favorite time of year, one because it is my birthday time and two because it is so beautiful to witness the growth of Mother Nature. So much gratitude, thank you Mother Earth for providing this season to us all, so we can all appreciate the beauty you have to offer.
