Namastgo

Colby n Me

After leaving, yet again, another place I’ve called home for the past year, I had to say so long. I left my some friends that I will surely miss. Not to mention my mum’s pup. This was the last time I will ever see him again, in waking life.

Mr. Colby, is getting ready to leave this world and move on to another life. It’s sad to watch someone you love wither away. Knowing that he isn’t in pain, is a blessing. I pray that he just falls asleep peacefully.

My friend, Miss Margret and I had a connection. She is an 82 year old German lady, who loves going to yoga, loves her garden and has a wonderful group of friends whom she has dinner with 3x’s a week. Everyday I would go to her house before work and we would have a nice visit. We would sit outside and talk about what’s bothering us, what’s making us happy; sharing stories of the past and present. It’s been a wonderful venture. And now I told her I would send her selfies everyday before work and call her. We gave hugs and put our hands in prayer and we bow, she says “Namaste”, I say “Namastgo”. We both laugh and hug and I was off.

I really don’t believe in saying goodbye, because that just feels so final. And sometimes it is.

I am so grateful for the people that have come in and out of my life. There is always a reason and a lesson that comes with everyone encounter. I am blessed to understand this and I am capable of seeing both with each encounter. Although it’s often later than sooner, but that’s because there’s a lesson.

I wish everyone I have encountered, via any form of communication, the best and know that I have much gratitude for you.

Love, Light and Healing,

Out with the Old and In with the New…

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.

My home in Maine. The view I am leaving behind for the winter. Looking forward to seeing what my new view will look like!

Moat Mountian

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.

North Conway, straight ahead

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.

Smokey Quartz

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.

Mount Agamenticus

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.

Gratitude for Mother Nature

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.
