Garden of dreams


Autumnal leaves tumbling wishes in threes;

 Zinnias zooming high, catching sunbeams;

Glowing mountain ash berries: a magical tea;

Rest in the healing garden of dreams.

The colour Pink: a journey


coolour pink a journeythe colour pink a journey
On my journey this year, I have noticed so many beautiful flowers, so today I have decided to celebrate the colour pink, the colour of our heart centre, bringing love and happiness into our lives. I hope you enjoy my photos as much as I’ve been enjoying my journey with the colour pink.

Om Yam Om

We all cope with life’s challenges in different ways. As you know I love nature and everything natural and find the power of nature very healing. I love this peaceful image of the closeness of the geese, safely warming themselves on the opposite bank of the Grand Union Canal near Tring.
This post is called ‘Om Yam Om’ because it is a healing Bija mantra(sounds) for the Anahata chakra (heart chakra). I’ve been sounding this lovely mantra as part of my yoga practice. I’ve also been working on a yoga asana sequence from Swami Ambikananda’s book, ‘Healing yoga’, to purify my mind and body through balancing the heart chakra. This chakra governs the impulses of all the communication systems in the body, particularly that of the nervous system.
The experience of working to balance the heart chakra is very calming. We can all open, speak through our hearts, listen to our hearts and feel peace.
You can find out more about the chakras and mantras here, where there is a utube mantra video too.

Lyrical Lilac

Lyrical Lilac

Lilac lyrically
Soothes the
Humble Bumble,
Busily mumbling
And tumbling
In a jumbled
Shoal of sherbet,
Elfin confectionery.
Lilac starlets
For Fairy Queen’s
Tartlets.

Folklore describes the lilac tree as bringing peace and harmony. It represents spring having arrived and draws protective spirits into our lives. The lilac is buzzing with nature spirits where music is always being played bringing harmony into our lives.

Find your inner peace.


I posted this on The legion of door whores site. One beautiful day I came across this beautiful tranquil house, a retreat and home of 'Barefoot Therapies'. I loved the blue door, the Buddha and the wind chimes lulling me into that peaceful place.

Love spring

Spring explodes

Singing, zinging,
Loads of mingling,
Icecream pinks twinkling,
Dreamy violas’ winking.

Orange


The colour ‘orange’, the theme of Cee’s weekly photo challenge for this week. How does the colour orange make you feel?   Orange makes me feel creative and gives me the energizing sunshine filling my heart. orange

Rare Beauty


image

Rare beauty,
Radiantly proud;
Her swollen
Sphere,
Serenely shining,
Gently smiling;
Streaming through
Bedroom windows,
Night gazers
Stare, euphoric,
Illuminated;
Drenched in
Lunar energy.
An innocent
Smile
On the angel’s face,
Reflects elation
On the maternal moon.
Rocketing high,
The angel reaches
Touching incandescent
Sparkling light.

My artwork, ‘Reiki angel’ was inspired by a reiki meditation, where I saw her standing in front of me, reaching for the moon. After a few nights of meditating by the light of the blue moon and just gazing, I felt I had to write a poem. I hope you enjoy it.

About the Blue Moon
An astrological Blue Moon is rare; it happens when the moon is full twice in a solar month, giving us two full moons in the same zodiac sign.  The second of those is the Blue Moon.  The next Blue moon will be in June 2016.
Sarah Varcus says ‘ This moon seeks to empower us to make positive changes in our lives’

This post is dedicated to Sue dreamwalker for her loving, kind, healing energy. Thank you Sue for helping me to feel better.Sue’s wonderful, inspirational blog

Whimsical Wisteria

Whimsical Wisteria
Frivolously drapes
Like capricious
Crinolines of
Citrine silk,
Curiously
Waiting
By a quaint
Cottage door
For the fortune
Teller to gaze
Into a crystal ball.
