Follow Your Bliss and the Universe Will Open Doors

Looking out on a May evening...
Looking out on a May evening…

Making a decision is always the most difficult part of moving forward.

DSCF1379In deciding, one simply puts it out there, for the Universe to pick up.

DSCF1382That is what I have done here at Bealtaine Cottage…the next move comes from that energy.

The sale may, or may not happen…but the planting of trees will move forward.

The feeding system I have devised and constructed for the hens...an old pipe and tin, firmly secured on the wall of the hen-house!

I have done what was asked of me and agreed to the sacrifice.

What happens next is synchronicity and the will of Divine Energy…The Forest of Bealtaine will happen in the same magical way as Eden emerged here at Bealtaine Cottage.

Food is poured in to the top of the pipe and emerges from the feeder at the bottom as the hen peck!

As my friend, Rosie, on Twitter, pointed out to me this morning…“Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls.” -Joseph Campbell

Planting is under way of crops and even a few more trees, though mostly the trees are in pots awaiting a forest!

Earth Energy and the Divine Force

www.bealtainecottage.comCosmic energy is all around us.

www.bealtainecottage.comThere are days when one feels it powerfully as the day progresses.

www.bealtainecottage.comIt is often referred to as life force.

March 2014This is the powerful  energy that maintains the balance of our Earth, the Universe and beyond, into the Cosmos.

www.bealtainecottage.comThat energy can be felt in extraordinary ways here at Bealtaine Cottage.

www.bealtainecottage.comMany visitors become overwhelmed by the force of the energy, often crying and needing to embrace.

www.bealtainecottage.comThose of you who have visited will have experienced this.

www.bealtainecottage.com 038For my part, I firmly believe in the manifestation of the Divine in all of Nature.

cropped-www-bealtainecottage-com-0362.jpgWhere Nature is abundant, the power of that Divine Energy is more strongly felt.

www.bealtainecottage.com 003Earth Energy is  a powerful spiritual energy force.

www.bealtainecottage.com 030This can be felt and received directly from Mother Earth and all life forms growing from the Earth.

www.bealtainecottage.com 021There appears to be a shift in that energy…a very powerful shift!

www.bealtainecottage.com 012Can you feel it?

Today I felt a tiny bit sad.

Not for any reason in particular…I’m sure we all feel like this every so often.

Permaculture gardens in April at Bealtaine CottageSo there I was, having a good old wallow in being down, when something caught my eye, causing me to look up.

www.bealtainecottage.com 015It was a simple cameo…a blackbird that peered inquisitively back at me through the kitchen window.

I “heard” the look.

www.bealtainecottage.com 054The beautiful bird brought me a message from Nature, saying, quite simply, “look!”

Autumn 2013 at Bealtaine Cottage 001I stepped outside and looked.

Welcome to the Permaculture Gardens of Bealtaine CottageSince this morning I have looked and been lifted.
