The BBC has just rung 11:11:11 and Big Ben has called all for one minute of silence. I wonder if the cannons and artillery barrages stopped in Ukraine. I doubt it.
I have received several messages from optimistic friends telling me that 11:11:11 is a new portal, my body is going to regenerate and the world is my oyster if I can set my mind to it.
Only, as I sit there contemplating the rain pouring down the windows of my study, I am not feeling it. Another huge storm coming over fr…
Every year I celebrate the great Celtic Festivals and every year something new comes to my attention.
This year, I finally integrated the strange idea that there are in fact two Samhain. The one everybody celebrates on October 31st and then another one. On a date a week roughly after the 31st, the sun aligns in Cairn L of the great Irish monuments of Lochcrew. That is the alignment of Samhain. My friend john Willmott took that photo a few years back and has kindly agreed to let me u…
This is the view from my kitchen window this morning... bleak isn't it. Just the right type of weather for Samhain. Long gone are the summer's days (if you had a decent summer and were not plagued by fires, high temperatures, and freak floods) and tonight, in Europe, the clocks are going backward. Why the whole world has to change times and cannot get its act together to do it at the same time (!) is still a mystery to me.
But then individualism is becoming more and more well, indiv…
How are you faring as the year winds down and the trees turn red and yellow in their Fall dance? Have you noticed that trees never seem to be worried that their leaves are changing color or even falling on the ground? They, unlike us humans, seem to be pretty accepting of what is.
Be more like a tree!
I learn so much from trees when I walk around the land. I have a very small grove of Scott Pines in a corner of my place and they fill me with joy. They grow like anything,…
Happy Friday. Apparently, it is a bit of a special one! it is the 9th day of the 9th month and a number 6 day. Change is on the horizon (again... I am getting a bit tired of the change), also Mercury is going retrograde and Nepture is doing something or other. I think there is going to be a lot of water floating around and that is not surprising as Ireland has returned to its normal pattern of serious downpours!
So, I have a wee story to tell you.
This morning, I did an inventory o…
How is it all going? Has the Autumn started in your neck of the woods yet?
As I wistfully look at the weather in Florence - still 30 degrees C and sunny - and look out of my window (gale force winds and rain), I am taking stock of this Summer's Harvest.
Saturday is the Harvest Full Moon and if you are interested in this kind of thing, then sign up for my Full Moon email? Here is the link www.baya.ie/fullmoon
I have been working on this for the past week or so. What, with the w…
Wishing for the Moon
How are you doing? I mean, what with the droughts, the monsoon, the electricity, the fuel, the.... just fill in the blank space. Do you ever want to put your hands on your ears and beg the endless stream of things to be worried about to stop?
I certainly do and was toying with the idea of doing a series of EFT tapping Masterclasses for anxiety relief.
You know, show you how you can tap and help yourself think again and manage the legitimate anxiety better.
Then, I thought again.…
The New Bed
Its was a New Moon on Saturday so I thought I would tell you a story about new starts and old patterns. Just to show you that I am no way as sorted as I might think I am.
It is all about an old bed.
Well, actually, it is not an old bed. It was, once upon a time a NEW BED! Bought five years ago when we moved to Ireland. It was going to be the new bed for our Air B&B Adventure.
But that Adventure never actually took off so after a few guest we stopped.
I always HATED that Bed…
I hope the end of the summer is treating you well. There is a serious nip in the air in Ireland and the blackberries are plentiful. Time to get my jelly making equipment out!
But before I do that, I wanted to carry on talking about names. It has been a long saga and this may or may not be the last of my blogs on the topic, who know what will be revealed next? At the grand old age of 66, I still marvel at the way things unravel, how magic happens in my life and how, again and aga…
