Morning (or evening if you're in Australia ;-)), to my enchanted family!
Please know that in spite of my absence - you are all such a huge part of me. Like Sunshine, I came here almost two years ago - pained and looking for insight and what I found is so much more. Who knew that I would stumble open such a community of like-minded people?
Icey, Thank you always for creating this sacred santuary! Love and peace flow easily here and I believe that our angels/guardians have steered us here quite deliberately. As we face challenges and upheavals, this is the space in which our spirits can rest their weary wings and gather energy to soar once more! I'm reposting your message from page 336 as I believe it captures the essence of our pond:
"What we are co-creating at the pond here is spilling over into our everyday lives and hence, those we meet and those we pass along our path. What we collectively bring forth is shaping the reality of tomorrow. The more conscious we are becoming of this, the more light we are, in effect, producing. EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED. NOTHING IS CHANCE. THERE IS PURPOSE AND BEAUTY IN ALL OF IT!
It is a very difficult thing to hold a light vibration as an individual but, as a collective vibration, well ... WOW! This sacred space, our beloved pond, is a co-creation of our souls. Can you feel that? It is the force that draws us to each-other and the force that guides others here. I am becoming extremely aware of our vast readership and, more importantly, the NEED others have to connect with something that makes sense to them. I began with a spark and one by one you have stepped forth to now make the BEAM! Others are feeling this and so has begun the evolution for their unique self too ... and all because of the connectedness we now share."
You all have lifted me (and each other) up so many times. I do believe we all become lighter with the lifting.
Happy Birthday to your dear King. IF he doesn't want to get any older- just tell him to switch base systems. For example, I can say with perfect honesty that I am 30 years old! It is so not my fault if folks asssume base 10 - a little geek humor that perhaps only Laie (and LC if he is lurking) will get!! And good luck with the move - hope everything goes smoothly and you are settle easily into a warm and light filled new home!
Sunshine - so many challenges - moving (TWICE), your mom's health (hope she is still recovering well?) and lately the issues with your beautiful children. Your devotion to the L's and your strength are truly inspirational. And to layer all of your successes in school on top of that... For you, sweet lady, I am sending prayers for time to recharge, rejoice, and relax.
Lady Laie - Congrats on the wedding!! And how wonderful that you and Bloom got to play (tho' like Icey - I'm just a tad jealous! Though I hope that I will also be able to meet you two when I finally make my trip to Kripalu!) I love how you are evolving a richer understanding of you and your Prince that is opening up more depth! And the wisdom and clarity that you offer to everyone on here is so amazing (I cut and pasted the Dr. Suess quote to DD/LC so that I could save it!). Oh, and I lurrrve your beautiful picture!!
Bloom - I love your picture too! Such radiance and warmth in such a little thumbnail! Congrats on your princess' wedding too (funny how many of us are blessed with our own little divas, lol!) So sorry to hear of your hubbys health battles and am sending prayers for continued recovery. Interesting that a side effect are the little peeks into the thoughts that he never expressed freely before... Maybe this insight (though uncomfortable) will offer a way to connect a little more deeply (ala Laie and her prince)? So love the sweet story of Geo's legacy of connection. You are perhaps the most constant presence at the pond - a truly warm and generous soul that immediately offers support and encouragement when someone is struggling. Oh and buy the d*** dress already !!
MyJourney - I am sorry that things have not been going as well with your Sag. But so glad that you found an amazing new home for you and your daughter! Thank you for always spreading your positive energy here! You light up this place -literally -with all of your gorgeous pictures (that speak to us on a deeper level than words).
Last Crusader/DD - my heart is aching for you and all that you have faced and are facing. But please listen to the wise words from your loved ones here - don't turn your back on everything/everyone because things are hard. You are here for a reason (as we all are). Rest in our gentle wings for a bit if you must, but you need to open and open and open some more to the truth that is within you. Yes, life is painful and hard and unfair, but it is also magnificent and amazing if you allow your soul to open to it! Shift your energy away from wallowing in the awful to being grateful for the good and notice what happens...
So nice to meet you Patchlove, RedPetals, Catflash, SpiritSeeker - your souls add warmth to our sparkly little pool.
Where art thou QueenKath and Gemmy - missing QKs stiletto party ways and Gemmys warmth and connection to our natural world??
Now where did all the pool boys go with my jello shots ;-)???
Angel Hugs and Fairy kisses to you all!!
