Happy July! I love July. Although I have been reluctant to walk outside without an ice suit lately. It’s HOT!! Water is such a refreshing treat these days. Cool water, that it. Over this past weekend Johnny and I were guided to this amazing “diamond in the rough” called Sea Creek Falls. It lies hidden in the forest with very few visitors. This place was so healing for me. I felt completely rejuvenated after a long hot day. Its waters were icy cold, a delicious relief for hot and tired skin. The mist from the waterfalls cools the air allowing you to sit on the rocks and indulge in the vibrant energy nature has to offer in this enchanting haven. This place is truly a treat for anyone looking to escape the hustle and bustle. Beware: the beauty of this place is enrapturing!
This month will end our Co-creation series! As I was sitting on a moss-carpeted log, which rested slightly above the rushing cascades I was able to connect very deeply with the land. The tales the faeries told me will have to be saved for another time, but I will share something that they showed me. Over these last few months we have really been learning about designing and implementing an energetic garden of sorts. Although sometimes challenging, it is always rewarding in the end. We stand back and admire our beautiful co-creation. We must always remember to toil with joy in our hearts, and gladness in our souls. They reminded me of an excerpt from my book, which is not yet complete. In this excerpt I talk about my childhood memory of my mother’s garden. I would like to share it with you:
“So where did this belief in faeries come from? The easy answer to this is that it just was an inner knowing. I just knew. What helped nurture this belief along was my mother. To say the woman had a green thumb is a great understatement. She has a natural ability to grow anything. She could probably grow a coral reef in a desert if she tried. Her gardens have always resembled faery playgrounds. Everything appears wild and grown out. In her garden in Chicago, roses grew on the fence and marigolds popped out of nowhere. A lilac bush here, a hibiscus tree there. Nothing was out of place, and yet nothing looked landscaped by human hands. It couldn’t have been better planned if the Earth were left to her own devices. It was as if they had a daily powwow, Mother Earth and my mom, whereby they drew up their plans to create the most beautiful, wild and natural garden setting that ever was. This was the opposite of an English garden. There were no manicured lawns or patterns of similar flowers. This was no “blue bells and cocker shells nicely in a row” garden. This was a free-flowing masterpiece, a divine garden where faeries and angels played. She co-created with nature every day and she didn’t even consciously know it. I believe it was one of those creations that you never really know how magnificent it really is, or how the hell you’ve managed it. Of course, on some very deep level she knew. She also knew about the faeries. She knew they existed and she told me so.”
When we create from our hearts in a co-creative partnership with Nature, we allow a space from the most wondrous desire to flourish. May all of your gardens be as wildly beautiful and divinely conceived.
Co-Creation Series: Planting Our Seed
The last step is the easiest and yet least practiced step of all. We always forget about the last step. We have no problem connecting and setting our intention to Co-create. Then we have many desires that arise from deep within the heart that we wish to manifest. After that, though, most of us run off. We are on to the next thing, and only ever so sporadically are we brought back to the glimpse of our dream.
The last step has to do with planting your seed. The images of your desires are seeds, and you must go and plant them in order for them to grow. You wouldn’t buy a packet of seeds and expect them to sprout without planting or caring for them, would you? It is no different with your dreams.
Close your eyes. Breathe. Feel the love and support of Mother Earth surrounding you in a nurturing blanket. Ask for the divine celestial energy of Father Sky to pour down over. Feel the blending of these two energies in your heart space. Breathe. Ask that the faeries be with you now. Feel yourself connecting with them, heart to heart. Know that they are here to support you in your manifestation every step of the way. With this feeling of love for All That Is, let us now recall the image that arose last month. This was a desire or dream that came from within the heart space. Breathe. With that image in your heart and mind, close your eyes. Now ask the soil of the ethers to come forth. See these swirling sands of time moving before – you are gazing at pure unformed potential. It is just waiting to be molded into form. See in your mind’s eye what looks like a seed or bulb. Allow it to float in front of you. Take this seed in your hands. Feel the love you have for this seed, for within it is the pure potential of all of creation. With loving conscious intention envision your dream or desire. Sense the joy in your heart that you feel knowing that this dream has already come true. Now send this image of your desire into the seed. Feel the seed receive the image. Now place the seed in the etheric soil and watch it disappear becoming one with it. The soil has received your dream.
Just like a plant or flower cannot live without water and sunlight, a dream cannot live without love and conscious attention. Let us begin to water our dreams with love and light. Begin to send a ray of love from your heart to the soil, knowing that your seed is receiving it. Notice the faeries sending their love to the seed as well. They see the highest and best for you, and everything that they do is in harmony with the Earth.
Now we must release the dream to its highest and best. In doing this, we allow it to take on a life of its own. We must also be open to it shifting to an even greater vision that we could have ever conceived.
Consciously attend to your dream-seed whenever possible, preferably everyday. Send it love and light without conditions or attachments. Bring it to memory often, with a fondness and joy. When you see or think about it, always feel the feelings and emotions as if it were already true. Really feel the joy and happiness that come along with the fulfillment of this dear desire.
Watch It Grow!!!
Love and Faery Light,
Diomira and the Faeries
