Physical labor?

Yesterday I spent the first half of the day working for/with the men of All Seasons. Hubby needed my help until the rest of the crew were due to arrive later in the day. We finished up this wicked cool waterfall feature you see above. Complete with frogs and fairies, too. (although those we didn't install, they just arrived!) For those of you who know me, I'm not that big on physical labor, but yesterday wasn't all that bad. It was a beautiful day to spend outside, too! Hubby has been singing the praises of our son who works full time for him and I finally got to see son in action. Just as hubby claims, the kid is smart and a really hard worker. He reminds me so much of hubby even complete with hubby-isms coming out his mouth!
Then, the second part of the day I did readings at The Purple Rose for open reading night. It was a full, awesome day. Now for those of you who do not enjoy summer, you may not want to read on...but it was so nippy at our house last night when I got home, that hubby lit a fire for me in the wood stove. ("just a small one", he said.) The dolphins were on the tv, Raven was curled up with me on the couch and a fire burning. A bit of 'fall' a bit too soon!!

Raven's World-34

Here's what Raven would like to share today:
"The forest is alive with faces, energy and spirit. Nature exists in perfect balance. Taking one tree disrupts this delicate balance, this harmony of all things. We (your animal friends and companions) implore you to feel this as truth. Every action does have an equal and opposite reaction. What you do individually affects the WHOLE. In more ways than you often allow yourself to see. Begin to speak with nature again. So that your future actions will be more in harmony with the web of all life."

Be careful what you wish for!!!

Summer seems to be so busy. Computer time falls by the way side as there are so many activities that involve fresh air and sunshine. And sons are busy, too. So, I was saying to the universe just the other day, "I'd like to spend more time with sons". Shortly thereafter, one son's car breaks. And shortly thereafter that, other son's car actually catches fire. Thankfully it was a small fire underneath the car that quickly put itself out. Hubby said it had to do with a vacuum leak, oil, the heat and the highway and blah blah (*mechanic speak here*) which he fixed up for son. But son is so freaked, he had his buddy take him to work last night...and low and behold...buddy's car breaks down, too. Not that I think I'm that powerful, but perhaps next time I'm speaking to the universe I'll use many more qualifiers to my requests...such as 'safely', 'conveniently', 'inexpensively' etc. Which reminds me about something I learned in Sedona about the Vortex energy. Dennis Andres writes in his book, "What is a Vortex?", that vortexes are amplifiers or magnifiers when it comes to manifestation. He talks about a client of his who wanted to see a tarantula while she was visiting Arizona. He advised her to be careful b/c what you think gets amplified so you want to add "safely" to that request b/c it will happen. And it did. She saw one on a trail but it was a baby and no threat! I did get to spend more time with sons including at least one awesome family dinner. Now I wish them through the universe, safe travels!
Don't forget "Discovering Nature's Spirit" radio show tonight at 6 pm (EST) where the angels have quite a bit to share. Even, angel readings for you if you'd like to call in (718-664-6906)! Next Sunday will be the last Sunday evening for our show. Beginning in September, we're moving to Monday evenings from 7-8 pm (EST) for everyone's convenience.

I was reading a friend's post this morning about her lab retrieving a chicken and had to share Raven's recent adventure. She had occasion to go swimming in a lake. You may not know this about Raven but she is an avid fisherwoman. And has actually succeeded once in catching a fish with her bare teeth! So on this swim, she noticed a lone duck swimming not far from her and decided to give chase. She swam so fast after that duck I was afraid of how far out into the middle of the lake she'd go. As she got closer, the duck decided to add some wing power and started to fly. Well, Raven wasn't going to let that stop her. She swam with such force that she actually managed to lift herself up out of the water up to her chest! (she's almost 100 pounds) But then apparently gravity took hold once again. I guess she's not named Raven for naught.

Raven's World-33

Here's what Raven would like to share today. Remember that she's happy to take your questions, too!
"We (your animal friends and companions) ask that you do one thing today on behalf of the earth and its creatures. It certainly does not have to be a grand or expensive gesture. Small and free work just as well. (say a prayer or blessing, plant a tree, adopt a cat, fill your bird feeder, ...) Use your imagination. Be as creative as you'd like. Use your working thumbs and human power in the world. Stewardship begins with a single step."

We have a cat who has suffered in the past with chronic urinary tract infections. It stems from crystals developing. Over the early years we meandered through all the usual standard vet procedures. Only to find that the only thing that really helps is a certain kind of diet. Specifically, cat food that does not contain the elements that cause the crystals in the first place. Up until recently we've made due with the non-holistic vet prescribed food. Even though I cringe at what companies put in food for our pets. So I've been searching for a holistic brand that will contain the magic recipe to ward off crystals. And low and behold, I found it! It's called Felidae and it's much more holistically oriented and we have been crystal free! Woohoo!

The energy has just been buzzing since I returned from Sedona. So much happening. So many cool things coming in. Busy, busy, busy. Not just with my own work but also great offerings by others at The Purple Rose, too! I cannot wait for our psychic fair that we will host on Sat. Sept. 12 featuring many readers, healers and some vendors, too. We have Pamela Edmunds coming in from the Cape area to teach us Lightarian Reiki which is for those who have reached the Reiki Master level of training and are seeking something more. And we also have Jay Schwed offering us an amazing performance of singing bowls in October. I'm also excited about this coming Sunday evening's radio show featuring Lisl Meredith Huebner who is a chinese herbalist and co-owner of The Essence of Being in Burlington, CT who will be helping us all understand the topic of plant consciousness!

Raven's World-32

Here's what Raven would like to share today:
"Bring it down, people! Down into your heart. Breath the energy down from your head to your heart. Many of you are too much in your minds. And that mind chatter can lean toward the negative. Shift back to your heart. Then complete the circuit and breath from your heart to the bottoms of your feet. This will ground you and your energy. (too bad you don't have 4 paws like us! But 2 will work!) Practice this regularly. Many times a day. You will begin to live from a more heart centered space of love, flow, joy, clarity and miracles."

One last day trip

We took a day trip to the hoover dam, lake mead with its turquoise water and to vegas. Not exactly a spiritual piece of our vaca, but you know what they say about all work and no play!!

Catching up

It's taken me a while to catch up both at home and at work after being away. Here's a couple more photos from the trip. The top is the grand canyon. The pictures really don't do it justice. Unless you have the opportunity to stand on the side of it and look out you cannot imagine how huge it is. (remember that episode of the brady bunch where they took mules down it!! lol) The second photo is one of my favorite places in Sedona. It's a chapel built right into one of the red rock formations. It's a very powerful place. To me it feels like anyone from any background would enjoy its peacefulness. Arizona is a land of striking contrasts. You can move from the desert with its barrenness through Sedona with its red rock beauty up to the mountains where you find lush green (and I'm told snow in the winter). We also visited the old mining town of Jerome which is literally built on the side of a mountain. It's said to be haunted and you can even get a haunted cheeseburger there. I was in food heaven. Sedona has three health food stores and an italian restaurant (Picazzo's) with 4 pages of gluten free choices!!!

Raven's World-31

Here's what Raven would like to share today:
"There is a peace within you. Deep inside. There's a place you can go. A secret place only you know. Reach for it. Use whatever method, technique or religion that brings you there. But you must find it. It is essential at this time. No matter what is going on in your life, in your community, in your body. It's the only way anything can begin to get better. It's the only way to see clearly, to find the answers or even begin to ask the right questions."

Hubby and I spent last week in Sedona, Arizona. It truly is one of the most amazing places! There are red rock mountain formations with some powerful energy. Everyone speaks about 'energy vortexes' there! (although not everyone least they're talking about it) There are even tours of the vortexes! The rocks are named for the images you can see in them. How cool is that! It was around 100 every day! Nice and warm for me. And a great way to rest and recharge.
Don't forget to tune in to our live "Discovering Nature's Spirit" radio show tonight at 6 p.m. EST where The Angel Lady, Barbara Hardie, will be sharing with us information about ascension and 2012!
