April 2011 Bealtaine Cottage permaculture gardens

Seedlings are thriving in the tunnel.

Spring is in full bloom and life is thriving at Bealtaine Cottage.

There is a certain joy in the air that is spiralling outwards and upwards capturing the energy of all life.

Primulas and Lady’s Mantle show off their form and colour, jostling for attention as the sun rises higher and higher in the clear blue skies above this little cottage.

I love archways like this in the gardens, for there is something deeply spiritual and connective about the shape of them, joining one side of a path to another…connecting, as we’re all connected!

Green, deep shades of green symbolising life at it’s most potent and powerful.

Healing colour that pulses energy through the eye and deep into the human mind creating calm and joy.

As Mother Earth thrives, so do we.

The connection is so very simple to make.

We need little education to understand this most elemental of connectors we share with her.

We need Nature to thrive.

There is much to be said for the “Green Economy”, including the aspects of personal health and well-being we acquire through allowing Nature and ourselves to thrive.

If you want to thrive, go to Mother Nature.

If you want children to thrive, place them in Nature.

The sounds, sights, scents of Mother Earth are all around us.

The eminent Archaeologist, Marija Gimbutas, describes the power of Nature so well… “Her power was in water and stone, in tomb and cave, in animals and birds, snakes and fish, hills, trees and flowers. hence the holistic and mythopoeic perception of the sacredness and mystery of all there is on Earth.”

It’s time to go to her and begin to thrive.

The Great Force

10 Apr

“One of the most important things about permaculture is that it is founded on a series of principles that can be applied to any circumstance—agriculture,urban design, or the art of living. The core of the principles is the working relationships and connections between all things.”
Juliana Birnbaum Fox, Sustainable Revolution: Permaculture in Ecovillages, Urban Farms, and Communities Worldwide

Wise words from Juliana…I have discovered to be correct, for all is connected!

I would add, that in my view, we are all a part of a greater consciousness too.

As the eleventh anniversary of the founding of Bealtaine Cottage comes around in May, I have been reflecting on the changes experienced in my personal life and way of seeing the world, through connecting with the great force that is Mother Earth.

bealtainecottage.com 016

The impact of this connection has changed my life utterly, in every way…emotionally, physically and spiritually.

Those who have visited here have shared conversations in this frame and felt an impact upon their own lives too.

Recently I embarked upon a Juice Fast, drinking plants grown here at Bealtaine as well as others bought in, such as fruit.

I feel it important to share this with you, for I am now convinced that much healing can be found through the bounty of Mother Nature.

I have certainly found it to be so, as I move past the halfway mark in a sixty day Juice Fast and realise, day on day, how well I feel!

I intend writing about this in more depth in my next Bealtaine Cottage Good Life blog, for the effects of this have impacted markedly upon my health and well-being!

“A sacred way of life connects us to the people and places around us. That means that a sacred economy must be in large part a local economy, in which we have multidimensional, personal relationships with the land and people who meet our needs, and whose needs are met in turn.”

Rising to Venus

It happens like this most years.

The West of Ireland explodes into Spring!

bealtainecottage.com 002

Temperatures rise fast, days appear endless and birds sing in praise of the welcome season, for Winter, with all it’s darkness is finally put to bed under a carpet of falling Beech leaves, pushing off last seasons growth as new buds thicken. bealtainecottage.com 003

But what’s happening at Bealtaine Cottage…the kitchen’s a mess?
