Slithering Blissings: From Deepest Despair To The Brightest Of Joy!

snake-symbolI woke the following morning with things to do and no sign of the python so I opened the front door and left the connecting door closed hoping that the snake would take the opportunity to escape. There was no sign of it that day or the next and I began to hope that it had indeed slithered its way out of the house because I still had no idea what to do with the darn thing. I wasn’t frightened of it but I had no idea what to do with it, I knew that pythons are not aggressive or venomous but I didn’t really know how it would react if I tried to pick it up.

On the sunday evening I had been out all day and when I turned the light on for the front room lo and behold, there was the python, curled up on a pot plant crushing the life out of the poor thing. This was the closest to the door it had been, surely there was some way I could get it to go out the front door. I got a broom and tried poking it but the snake merely raised its head and looked at me with its tiny eyes, what to do? Then I had a brain wave, the pot plant was on a small table and so I pushed the table over to the door. I had to push the table half way out the door but the snake eventually got the idea and slid its way down onto the verandah and slithered away into the night, thank the Goddess, I had managed to solve the problem all by myself.

The Midsummer celebration in Ancient Gaul was called the Feast of Epona, named after a mare goddess who personified fertility, sovereignty and agriculture. She was portrayed as a woman riding a mare.

A good story to dine out on, but of course there is a deeper understanding that may be gleaned from this tale, the snake is a symbol rich in meaning and it came into the house for the Solstice 2012, very powerful medicine indeed! To find out the meaning for me look for my next post, Slithering blissings to you all…………………

Slithering blissings indeed! I was about to embark upon a year of incredible learning ushered in by snake medicine, culminating at the Spring Equinox in September 2013. I did not know then that a part of my journey was truly coming to an end. But before I finally came together with my soul mate there was pain and heartache which would help to strip away the last of what was in the way of my being able to see my own true value. And I have this blog which I published every day for almost a year to document my journey, yet another blessing amongst so many wonders and joys.

See you next week!

Power Supplies And Pythons: And The World Didn’t End After All!

power cutI had to call on my powers of trust and flexibility today when all the  power switches in my new house sit suddenly decided not to dispense power.  My lap top has a battery that is so addicted to electrical power it barely condescends to perform on just the battery alone. In the middle of organising music for the next Ecstatic Dance I was frustrated and a curse or two may well have slipped from my lips as it rapidly became clear that something somewhere in this sweet dilapidated house had shorted out the system.

????????????????????????????????????

My Beloved was not at home and so I called on a friendly neighbour who upon investigation informed me that water had got into the pump that has been supplying us with lovely rain water. He turned it off and hallelujah, I had electrical current flowing through all the necessities of life, fridge, computer, kettle and toaster! But left with town water full of fluoride and chlorine as my drinking water it is just as well that we travel around with our own water supply. A quick trip to the shops this afternoon and we once again had water fit to drink! It still amazes me that we allow our governments to poison our water but that’s a topic for another post.

So here I am in the house I spent nine weeks in two years ago and how different my life has become since then. It was here that I began this blog and here that a huge python came to visit on the eve of the Summer Solstice 2012. It was the beginning of my journey towards my Beloved and so here is part one once again:

There is a sequel to my story of the Solstice night last Friday that I would like to share with you now, I felt it deserved a post all to itself. I should begin by telling you about the night before that, when I came home to find objects in the house slightly moved around, and in the bathroom some things had been knocked over and broken. I could not for the life of me work out what on earth could have done this, I had a sense that something had come in through the window but had no idea what it was.

summer solsticeSo on the Solstice night I was in bed when I heard crashing sounds coming from the front room, I leaped out of bed and went rushing in to discover a huge python curling its way along the top of the shelves knocking things over as it went. The woman I am house sitting for does sandplay therapy and she had hundreds of little figures and objects which were now hurtling off the shelf in the wake of this slithering reptile, as a city girl I had never seen anything like it before in my life!

I had no idea what to do, the snake was obviously looking for a way out but it was heading away from the door and none of the windows in the room would open. There was also a smell of sewage and I cast around for the source of it only to find a huge pile of what I could only assume to be python poo, oh my goddess, letting go of the notion of sleep I set to and cleaned up the mess. The snake was still in the room and not looking like it had any intention of going out the door, in the end I had to go to bed with the connecting door to the rest of the house shut but I couldn’t leave the front door open so I had to let the whole thing go and hope that the morning would come with an answer to the question of what to do with the snake!

To find out what happened next stay tuned for my next post!spotted-python

Still no camera but my python was very similar to this one, imagine having this slithering around your home!

We Live In Exciting Times!

christmas house lightsSome of you may wonder where I have been lately, two Wednesdays have passed with no word from the vortex…………perhaps the words were sucked into the bright tinselly realms of Christmas time and New Year! It can be a challenging time of year for many but Yuletide stress is not something I can really claim, both my family gatherings were full of food, laughter and generally good cheer all round.

No the truth is that I am experiencing a strong reluctance to spend any time at all in front of my computer. It’s a feeling in my body that gives no reason for this, a visceral response that completely bypasses the so-called reasoning brain. At the same time I feel strongly called to continue writing posts, feels like I am being pulled in two directions. So with the madness of the festive season I  completely lost the plot and disappeared into the vortex of flashing lights and festive celebrations.

So am I back I hear you ask? The answer to that question is still under exploration as I attempt to navigate my way in what feels like a whole new chapter of my existence. I keep getting the sense of being on the brink of something huge and exciting, for myself but also for the larger community. These are end times that we are living in and there is a grand opportunity to create new stories for the new humanity that is being birthed at this time.

spiritual energy

The trick is to be in the flow of energy and to be able to respond to the sudden changes that are a feature of this huge transition that humanity is attempting to go through. My mobile life as a house sitter is a wonderful preparation for living moment to moment, trusting that there will always be somewhere for my Beloved and I to call home. Trusting that we can make our way in a world that often seems inimical to the deeper spiritual waters where we love to swim and play.

So I will do my best to meet the commitment of one post per week and we shall see where this new energy leads. As I sit here writing this I am looking out at green fields and a large brown cow that is scratching itself on a post. And yet I am in a suburban house about five minutes walk into the heart of town, another beautiful home that we are most privileged to be able to live in for a time. The phrase that comes to mind is that things can only get better, also the title of a dancy pop song by a band I’ve never heard of: D:Ream. You may want to put on your dancing shoes and take a spin as you listen to this one, enjoy!

 

We Are One: From The Shadow To The Light.

sydney-opera-house-bridge-blueA day behind am I as I come back from a wonderful journey to the city of Sydney to play with my Beloved and our very dear friend. For those not of Oz think Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House, lots of water  and lovely depending on where you stay, we had nice water views. But city energy starts to get you down after a time however nice it is in your particular location, its a kind of pressure and I noticed it most when I got home and felt it’s absence. Ahhhhhhh………….. a wonderful place to visit but I will stay in the country methinks, the slower pace suits me very well.

I’d like to share some songs with you that my Beloved and I used in our last dance playlist, here is one that has been going round and round in my head and it expresses our theme that we are all one, interconnected.

Here’s an example of how we danced the shadow side of our theme, separation.

Keep dancing and singing and visioning your desire to live a responsible life of happiness and feeling connected to the web that most indigenous people seem to understand. Find your place of power and do whatever it is you came here to do in the critical current evolution of humanity, everyone has their place, do you know yours? You only need to know the first step really, and then have the courage to take that step and see what happens.

Not a particularly Australian Christmas but I love the colours and the sparkle!

Chrissy Blissings to You All, I will endeavour to manage a christmas eve missive for your delectation, hopefully.

Love to all life everywhere, for all time……..

Treasures Within And The Hobbit 3!

hobbit 3 hoardThe gleam of dragon’s hoard sparkling off in the distance, getting closer and closer………..she can almost see what it is, almost. Once again the sense of vision dances away and she realises that there is still time to be spent immersed in that sea of uncertainty. Knowing and feeling the connection to purpose and meaning does not guarantee always being able to see the precise shape of the future. Even though you know that it is there.

Hobbit-3-dragon flame

So I will continue to feel into it and we shall see what treasures shall be revealed. And I will make the promise to post something every Wednesday, may well be a surprise to me as well as to you! In the meantime I can look forward to seeing a film with a dragon and his hoard, a hobbit, a wizard and dwarves and a mountain of course. Great original story so very padded out in this trilogy but looks amazing and awesome in 3D, just think of it as related to the original book  and enjoy it for what it is I reckon.

Enjoy the 3D ride……………….!

An Extended Holy, Holy…….

vortexJust give me another week she said and I will have all kinds of strange delights to captivate and entrance you, I know I said I would be ready by now but time works strangely in the vortex.

Enter at your own risk, when I finally do return I will be posting once a week on a Wednesday………… as Douglas Adams said, “Time is an illusion, lunchtime doubly so.” And in the vortex time never even got a look in, it’s like one long lunch with all kinds of strange foods at the feast.

Big Rainbow

See you down the rabbit hole very soon………

Holy, Holy, Holy Holidays!

psychedelic vortexOfficial Announcement, somewhat belated………. I am having four weeks off and I don’t have back up posts, I received that piece of advice when I had already well and truly begun this journey down the rabbit hole!

Down the rabbit holeSo I am in the vortex right now and when I get out the other side I will let you know what has unfolded, the plan is for this to happen by Sunday 30th November.

More than that I can’t say………mostly I’m hopelessly in love and the more time I can hang out with my Beloved the happier I am!
