On a recent excursion where I found myself in a totally different Eco system which was streaming with people I found myself hungrily searching for nature and a common thread of life.
I found a deep connection to the plant life surrounding me at every turn. Most of this unparalleled beauty was ignored by the general crowd. There were divine connections and moments to simply appreciate tiny ferns growing out of huge palms, brilliant yellow tube shaped flowers bursting out on tree limbs stark and resting as spring began here. I even in several spots had the exciting trill of being enveloped by a scent so familiar but elusive till the files in my head connected the scents of our smudge sprays firefly garden, dancing dragon, invocation at midnight.
I was totally delighted to have created several scent combinations found in a cross section of gardens.
This confirmed “Yes the Fae have been blessing me with healing combinations and whispers on the winds of scent-sual healing my work.” Funny spelling intended. Things were happening very quickly on this experience and all I could do was be fully in the experience and know I would have time later to explore and record.
The next morning I got a bit of down time and knew I could grab an extra bit of sleep before heading out. Feeling a bit fuzzy like being between the worlds with one foot on either side, I began to notice the room was filled with a huge crowd of beautiful caramel, latte and bronze faces, bright alert brown eyes and happy excited expressions. The room is filled with a beautiful golden light which I may compare to sunrise on the best day of your life. The atmosphere is festive, joyful and gratitude is a swirling rainbow of color touching each and every face.
I begin to feel an expansion take place in my solar plexus as a doorway opens and sparks my guides to touch my shoulder while the knowing all is well, be at peace floods my heart. I can only equate this as a Faerie door opening and I am the door. There is a physical feeling like riding a quickly ascending elevator when you get the wibbly wobble feeling in the pit of your stomach.
Again I am reassured all is well and to go with the flow of the experience. I begin to hear Thank you, Merci, Adios, Ciao, Arrivederci, till we meet again…………being murmured in an unending stream. I see the faces begin to soften at the edges and begin to twinkle as the fade. So many, such happy faces swirling in and out of focus as they begin to pass thru the doorway and are gone. As the last faces swirl out of sight I feel the doorway close and I am transported to a sandy hill on the beach at sunrise looking out at the sea I seen hundreds of footprints coming from every direction and stop at the base of the hill.
In my work I have helped more than a few folks transition into what we call death, holding space, praying as they passed. This was a very different experience and as things finished I was enlightened that this was a mass transit for many who had been trapped and were ready to now move on.
I have received information and downloads about the Fae and one of their function is providing space and time for those who die to rest, reflect and reconnect to finish or shore up, bring peace to those they left behind.
This place is called the third kingdom and all life assumes a very fluid form, no straight lines no beginning and no end, A never ending stream of cycles, circles, nature, birth, death and all in between flow into the song of life each adding their own notes to enrich the beauty of every single form of life. All connected each adjusting to make room as the song expands and contracts.
While those who pass through the third kingdom old baggage melts away becoming fertilizer for new life as it releases pain, hate, and our burdens back into the full spectrum of life energy.
I was blessed to have this experience and help be the connection from one world into the next. Take time to unplug and connect into the world of nature and the Fae each day for the peace of mind, beauty and sometimes unexpected experiences along the way.
Blessed Be Peg FCM
Hello Misty Valley friends!! Gwen here with an adventurous tale about the Law of Attraction.
I love Law of Attraction. I've studied it a lot. I've manifested many, many things quite successfully. In fact, many times, I look back at things/people/etc who arrive in my life and think, "Wow! I asked for that and it arrived!" Usually that manifested when in my head I thought, "I need ___________" then tend to forget about it full stop because it was just a random thought that I didn't really focus on terribly hard. Sometime thereafter it arrives in perfect (or nearly perfect form. Often I forgot I even asked until I see the item. Sometimes I am guided to go to a store, othertimes the object is given to me unexpectedly.
I'm an avid reader and a life long student, so whenever the chance to practice arrives in a slightly different way, method, etc. I will eagerly try. I fell in love with Abraham-Hicks, Pam Grout, Tess Whitehurst and so many others!
In a magical online class I am part of, our weekly assignment, which followed a nice discussion of Law of Attraction, was to manifest a cookie. Make it fun, easy. Think about how it would taste, how we would enjoy having it. You know, not "how it would arrive" and not "who would give it to us." But "acting as if it were already ours." I'm paraphrasing and adding in little bits of information (I love how every teacher adds a new aspect or fills in a new piece to the puzzle of our knowledge).
Well, off I go on the assignment.
Here's a rough recount of my thought process. This is where the magic happens people.
So, I move on. I do other things. I keep driving to my destination. I go on with work.
On and on through out the week I think occasionally about our assignment.
So, I move on again and repeat this process over the next several days. Always sort of seeing the cookie cold and dejected on the counter. I feel how important it is to put distance between us.
You see, I'm a dancer and I will be performing in the near future. I love my body as it is and I also want to be a more muscular, svelte and athletic. I do enjoy cookies every so often, and I do not deprive myself of desserts ever! However, I really wanted to find a way to manifest something that would better align with my dessert and athlete strategy. But I just COULDN'T get there. I couldn't figure out what I wanted only that I saw my hand out stretched keeping that damn cookie away from me. I never once saw myself eat it, nor enjoy it, nor taste it. I always clearly felt the disconect between it and my body. Never once did those molecules touch, torture, nor add fat to my body.
For God's sake, Gwen! It's ONE cookie.
Yet, here in lies my power.
Yesterday, I went with my family to see Rogue One. We all love watching SciFi together. It was such a feel good day. We got seats together, everyone got a recliner, the movie was good, everyone was getting along. Are you sensing that I'm in MY VORTEX that Abraham Hicks talks of? I was in complete alignment with my life and circumstances.
After the movie, I had to go to the bathroom really badly. I raced in. As I'm walking in I see 2 long rows of something like 40 stalls! No lack of places to use.
I walked into the first stall and erupted into laughter. And would have sudden random bursts of laughter throughout the day. Who in their right mind would believe the cookie I manifest if I don't take a photo of it. I have no interest in photographing toilet stalls, this was my one exception.
All I could see was some little kid being brought into the bathroom by his mom. She's urgently trying to get him through the whole bathroom experience.
C'mon pee. Sit on the potty. No, don't play with the toilet paper.
Samson! Get over here. No, don't say hi to the people in the next stall. Don't look under there!
Let's go. You needed to go potty.
Put your cookie down! Thank you!
...and when all done...
No! you cannot take it with you.
Truly, what are the chances?
What's really funny, I always saw the cookie on the corner of a smooth, pale blue counter. While the corner was facing me and this corner of the toilet is facing away, the cookie is on a smooth surface, not on a plate and DEFINITELY in a place where I do not have to, nor do I want to, nor would it be sanitary to eat said cookie.
There. I did it. I manifested exactly the kind of cookie I wanted. HA!
Bwa ha ha ha ha!
Tis the season of the Mermaid.
The element of water on the turning wheel of the seasons.
Water in all forms begins it's annual return to the great seas. The wind gathers and coaxes the cloud brothers to gather the stray drops in increasing volumes preparing for the Wild sky theater arriving in October and November.
Beneath the sea the Kingdom of the Merfolks, for my dear there are not only mermaids but mermen, women, grandmothers, grandfathers and even mer-uncles who tell jokes and attend oyster shell events with glee.
Mermaids bring hope and blessings of freedom. Teaching us how to be more fluid and adapt to our environment to make to truly ours. Finding treasures in unexpected places. Remembering if we truly want to achieve a goal it happens drop by drop or in people speak " step by step" till we reach our chosen goal.
They teach us to sing out our troubles and release them to the Sea. Those troubles that seem so overwhelming and impossible when caught by the wind. Carried over the waves and down into the endless depths of water become diluted broken down into tiny bits carried out far and wide to listening ears and hearts of the Mermaid clans who pray and connect with the song of life.
New notes in the song return to your heart in unexpected blessings and hope.
All elements, each particle no matter how small are connected in the song of life.
Each takes a season in our ride around the sun.
Every single tiny speck has a reason and job to perform in the never ending song of life.
Spring brings us the element of air..... the winged ones Faerie, butterfly, bird, insects.
Summer offers Fire. Season of the Dragons, Phoenix Birds and Salamanders.
Autumn offers Water and our current season of the Mermaids and all who dwell around and near the water.
Winter brings us Earth. The Gnomes, elves, trolls and all who walk crawl or slither.
Your spirit guides are always with you. Ever vigilant at your side. They're with you when you sleep, when you're at work, in the car, and in the bathtub. They are always communicating with you. Sometimes, we just need to quiet the busy noise of the world around us and our own mind (worries and the like) in order to clearly sense (hear, see, touch, taste, smell, feel) and comprehend their messages.
Messages from the spirit world often have dual meanings. Often, we are getting a message from our guides, but we dismiss it or treat it as unimportant. On the other hand, sometimes, we are only ready to comprehend one meaning of our spirit guides messages. Then, after we have been through an experience, we understand the 2nd, 3rd, or even 4th meaning of their message because we can finally let go and look at the message from an unbiased, emotionally neutral, detached perspective and suddenly it makes sense. Having experienced that myself has taught me to train myself (it does take a conscious effort/awareness) to allow the message to arrive, take it with a grain of salt. Sometimes I take action, other times I do try to let the message be and take no action until some time has passed. I'm not always good about that.
In my practice, I connect to clients spirit guide teams and either channel messages for them (I allow them to use my body similarly to that of Jane Roberts, Sylvia Browne and Esther Hicks), or I sketch their spirit guides.
Consistently, the guides I channel advise the following ways to connect with them. Please keep in mind, you must choose the method(s) which allow you to be safe. Don't attempt this while operating any equipment or doing something that could put your or others safety and well being at risk. That being said, guides often come to me or I pray quite fervently while I'm in the car. If you don't feel safe doing so in a car, let your guides know "Hey guides! I'd love to talk further, but now is not a good, nor safe time, please come back when I am not driving."
Gaze Upon a Symbolic Image
One way to connect with a guide is to gaze upon an image that represents their energy to you.
Let your eyes go soft.
Breathe in to the count of 7.
Breathe out to the count of 7.
When you feel yourself relax and fall into a soft state, allow yourself to ask, "Hello guide. I would like to talk with you about _______________________. What guidance do you have for me at this time? How may I proceed for the best and highest good of all? How may I align with my Divinely given, perfect plan?"
Listen, sense, and be open for messages.
If you're not sure what your guide looks like, ask for them to show you a symbol that represents one of them. Then, be open to the symbol arriving in any form. Likewise, if you're waiting for a message from your guides, it could also arrive in these very same ways:
In the above spirit guide you see a goose taking flight. This could be a message to get out into the world. It could also mean taking flight from the family nest. The meanings can be infinte. The most important thing is to examine what the meaning of goose is for you.
"I don't know what goose means! How do I figure that out?!" Ask. Ask your guides to clarify. "Show me what you mean by goose. Show me more details on what goose represents in my life right now." Then, go take a walk outside and look to nature for symbols, shapes, etc. Being outside, as Peg mentioned in her post, is one of the most helpful ways to clear the junk out of your aura & mind and get into your 3rd mind. It also helps you hear a message clearly.
Ego vs. Spirit Guides
As you begin to hear more and more messages from your guides, know that you may need to discern between guides and ego.
Ego speaks in a negative tone.
Guides always speak from a place of loving support.
Sometimes, we confuse "not now" and "no that's not for you" messages from our guides as ego plainly because we want the thing that isn't for us so badly we cannot see clearly. When we don't want to hear those messages, it's best to stop asking and start doing. Do anything that is fun, enjoyable, and brings you peace. The easiest thing is to get outside for a stroll or a walk or a roll or a ride. Sit on the grass or a rock. Ask mother earth and her children (the grass and rocks) to support and love you right now. Personally, when I'm stuck I dive into my beloved hobby, sewing, or I go dance (that frees up stuck energy big time) or I go for a long walk. I focus totally on the thing I'm doing. I put on music that uplifts me or inspires me to wiggle and dance. I also will watch funny TV shows to evoke a laugh. People like Ed Wynn really do it for me. Slapstick is great.
Sleep & Dreams
Guides also visit us in our dreams. An easy way to get started is to invite them to connect with you before you go to sleep.
Meditation, Massage, & States of Bliss
When I've been the most relaxed is when my guides are able to clearly communicate with me. Here are a few other times and areas where I've clearly and easily connected with my guides to receive messages.
I hope this helps you deepen your connection with your guides.
Thank you for reading our new 2-perspective series. Peg & I are planning more of these. We've learned that it is very helpful to receive information from multiple sources as it helps us put together the whole picture.
Please let us know if you have enjoyed this 2-perspective mini series by leaving us a comment below! We love to hear from you.
Many people long for communication and guidance with their spirit guides and teachers, loved ones from the other side or the Fae ( Faeries, mythical beings, Ect). My path to receiving this gift was full of many trails and much advice which distilled down to some very simple steps.
Trust your own feelings, test the hell out of them.. But trust for you are the only one who can know what goes on in your own heart.
Spend time everyday unplugged and alone. Start with a few minutes and build up to longer times. You are your own best friend and constant companion.
Spend time in nature daily.
Take long baths or showers and dream or imagine what you would talk about with your spiritual advisers.
Read read read books, stories, faerie tales, spiritual books and grand glorious novels
Write with a pen or pencil on real paper every day. Start by coping phrases or quotes than inspire or uplift you. Then you can see where the writing takes you.
Use your imagination for this is the key to communicate with those in the unseen world say prayers of thanks out loud to whom ever you pray to. This is especially effective when spending time in nature, gardening, at the beach or lake and while driving. Make one of those prayers thank you for helping me to walk in beauty and grace.
Listen with your 3rd mind as you create a daily practice. Your 3rd mind is the part of your mind that is the observer and the witness of your awake and sleeping life, the recorder of dreams, hunches, inspiring actions, boldface lies and untruths. It is the part of you that puzzles out problems and helps you understand.
Love all of you both the light and the dark, for every aspect of you is important and worthy of understanding and observation and celebrating as they are uniquely you!
Build little altars everywhere and change them when inspired. Simply or complicated from a feather and a rock to a faerie garden. Do what will inspire and uplift your heart. Then change when it is no longer making your heart go flitter flop.
Love, trust and a little bit of faerie dust.. Peg
Peg & I created the Misty Valley Gateway with the assistance of the spirit guides and fae of the land to offer a place to send and receive loving, healing energy. As you send energy into it, the guardians know how to process it. As you sit before it, gazing into the moon gate, the guardians know exactly what and how to send energy to help heal your soul.
The tragic events of Orlando affect us all. If you seek healing energy and support during this difficult time, please visit our Healing Gateway. Likewise, if you wish to send healing , send prayers, offer love to any who need to process the grief of the senseless tragedies please visit our Healing Gateway. Instructions on how to send or receive energy are on that page.
Great Spirit is calling on us to take loving action and to build a world unified and supportive.
This channeled info is in support of all. The best things we can do are...
1. Take action toward loving one another right now, with those you see before you.
If you see someone in front of you and your first thought is that they will judge you, fear you, hate you, curse you, or hurt you, first, be safe. Second, instead of allowing yourself to believe that, look them in the eye, smile and change your thought to be - "I wonder what goodness lurks in their heart. I see the good in you. We are equal. Thank you for being respectful and loving. What a good person you are." Then be open to them walking away, no longer engaging, nor harming, or better yet, smiling at you. That is where change begins. In us. In our thoughts. In our hearts. In dropping our own ego so fully that we believe a world does exist where people love and respect one another. Then tell me if you don't begin to see your thoughts reflected and revealed to you over time as you build this practice.
2. Educate, share, teach each other instead of reacting or being offended.
If someone is brave enough to ask, please be courageous enough to share yourself, your story, your truths. Through talking and being open and allowing all ideas to surface and release, then discussed and understood, rather than harbored an worried or built upon, we allow room for love to enter and mutual respect and understanding to occur. We build the world we wish to live in.
3. If you see someone you don't understand or who lives a life that is totally different from your experiences, ask questions no matter how dumb you sound or how much you fear offending.
You will see that ultimately, we all just want to be loved for who we are. That we are all humans, seeking love. That we all struggle. That we all fear. And you may find that your share a friendship, a kinship with someone so very different from you. You may discover as someone shares their story, they have struggled the same way you have. Just under different circumstances. That we all "speak the same language" of we will believe it's possible.
And so it is. Blessed Be.
