The Journey Into Pleasure In All Things.

Lookout in the rain 2It feels a bit like I am sitting in a poem with each stage like a stanza telling the tale of water moving over the land. Looking out upon the Glasshouse Mountains  in the distance I watch the grey veil approaching as the mood shifts from warm sunlight to a touch of chill, back and forth. The rain which has been foretelling it’s coming in random stray drops finally begins to fall in a steady pattern as the sun shines through the sheets of water. It’s heavy for a time and I turn on the car’s engine and switch on the windscreen wipers, watching the motion back and forth and resting in the vibrating embrace of my metal steed.

The water continues it’s journey over the land and so it passes me, ahead the veil is gone and sunshine and shadow outline the sweeping greens of the landscape, the odd and compelling shapes of those mountains. The wind is whistling and swirling as I watch a tree with a spiky afro that describes a subtle and yet extravagant dance.

Even though my feet do not literally touch the earth I feel her, the feminine energy of this land is strong and many strong women are drawn to this place. But she is there for all so please call on her for the support you need, wherever you may be she will be present, no matter how subtle she is always here. After all, where could she go? Gaia is the universal intelligence that holds together what we know as our existence on this earthly plane. She is wise and if we allow her to do so, she is very good at keeping a balance between all the different realms.

As I sit here the sun has become strong again, shining its glory upon my neck and shoulder, flooding my cells with strength and determination. I’ve got a good feeling about what I am co-creating with my Beloved, Apollo fills me with optimism and hope, and my intuition whispers to me to do this, and do that.

Challenges will always come along but they can be instruments of diversion, taking us to places we might never have gone otherwise. And also providing more opportunity to feel pleasure as I release more and more of the holdings that couldn’t let me feel it all. And that isn’t just about sex you know, it can be in sitting in nature and connecting with the land you are on. The more deeply you are able to ‘see’ into things, the more pleasure you can feel. Why wouldn’t you want to take that journey!

Oh and by the way, all the photos are by me this time!

Persephone And The Princess.

Washing in, washing out, washing in………..the sun is playing hide and seek and the rain can’t decide if it wants to be a sun shower or not. Birds make bell-like sounds and the wind rushes through clear air, leaves of many varied green sway and dip, receiving the wind’s caress as if it were a lover’s touch……….. The house creaks and groans and smoke pours from the chimney as the stove hungrily consumes it’s meal of seasoned wood.

I carry my mind’s burden, it feeds down into my belly which trembles and feels unsure of itself, the cure is action, it is stillness, the remedy is to be here, to be present in nature’s cathedral. Settling in to my fairy cottage I put my airy threads and clothing rich into a cupboard shaped like a triangle, the slim wooden panels sloping down, I clear the space so that I may be in it. The altar is two lovers and a heart-shaped labyrinth, it is rose quartz and carnelian, lapis and rhodochrosite, there is a seed that was planted 18 months ago, ready to open to connection with another.

I am a princess, my bed is enfolded by filmy white that will keep me safe from the blood suckers that crave my sweet, royal blood, although it is not blue, it is red. Above my resting place the ceiling points at the sky with wooden limbs that arch gracefully, giving me a sense of symmetry and the knowledge that all is right in my world. All that I need to do is to see what is right in front of me, and how hard can that be?

I sip calm tea that comes from the Water Dragon, and feel the peace it channels into my beingness, sitting in stillness while the wind blows and my calm is complete, my belly at rest. I am grateful to the flow of spirit, that always guides me to wherever it is I need to be, sometimes the path may be stormy but the sun always comes out eventually and seems brighter for the darkness that has been.

Blessed be, blessed be, calling upon Aphrodite and Lilith, upon Demeter and Persephone, who is also a chook by the way, I am sure the Goddess is honoured to have her name bestowed upon such a pretty little thing! Mother Earth loves all her creatures, even us, we who do not always respect her, thank you mother, thank you Gaia……………blissings to all life.
