Danu Great Mother

Published November 25, 2020 by tindertender

The river is flowing
Flowing and growing
The river is flowing
Down to the sea
Mother earth carry me
Your child I have always been
Mother earth carry me
Down to the sea.

~ Author unknown

Great Mother,
take me in the healing arms of yours
wash away the tears of my soul
and guide me back home

Great Mother,
embrace me with the light of your sun
shining her golden light upon
the path I am on

I feel you are there
Your being fills the air
In my prayer

I’ll be forever a child that you teach
about ebb and flow, about what is to show beneath
Your roots, your wisdom they reach
beyond what words could teach
Unearth your voice, your song
Embrace me with your love

Great Mother,
take me in the healing arms of yours
Show me where I belong
Show me where my heart feels home

Where Mother is hearing my song,
Where Mother is hearing my song
I feel safe, I feel loved
I feel held in her arms so soft

I’ll be forever a child that you teach
about ebb and flow, about what is to show beneath
Your roots, your wisdom they reach
beyond what words could teach
Unearth your voice, your song
Embrace me with your love

What A Day

Published August 23, 2020 by tindertender

I went deep into the forest early this morning to float in GAIAs beautiful mineral waters. Upon arrival I found many people sitting in the sacred pools. They brought their lounge chairs into the water, their styrofoam cups, and they did not stop talking even for a short time. It was their playground.

I pulled a beer can and a plastic water bottle from the pools. I threw a nerf ball that was floating around up to the bank.

I had to leave this place because the energy of the people was so unsettling. I took photos of how they are treating this sacred space.

Dirty diaper

They peed on GAIA, which I have no issue with. However because they didn’t want to get it on themselves, they wiped with tissue and threw it on the ground, everywhere I looked. Not realizing in the slightest the filth they wanted to save themselves from, they spewed onto the land, for all to see, for months to come.

There is no garbage service here, no clean up crew. These bags were so heavy I could not even pick them up to haul them away. There was no respect or honor for the Earth shown that we live upon.

At first I was angry. I told all who listened in the aethers that these people did not deserve to be here on this piece of land. That I hoped the owner would once again construct barriers so the people could not drive in and camp here.

Then I remembered myself as a very young woman, who was never taught the value of life, for herself or another, nor was I ever taught about honoring the Earth in a good way.

I lived 36 years before I began to notice what I had been participating in, this disrespect, this sense of entitlement to do whatever the hell I wanted… and I was indeed creating such a place with my thoughtless actions, just as these people are.

I had a change of heart and decided to pray for them. I stopped and spoke with GAIA and gave her gifts, including the plug from the clans prayer pipe that had been gifted to me, and the stone I received full of blessing from a gal who had gifted it to me, returning it, and the blessing to our peaceful and caring nurturer, GAIA.

I asked for forgiveness for my part in it all as a youngster, and otherwise, before I became aware. I asked that the others be forgiven and have their minds and hearts illuminated so they may see what they are doing and find respect for our home in their being.

Our beautiful home.

We must raise our own love and happiness vibe, which helps GAIA raise her own wounded vibe, which in turn helps raise the vibe of those still unaware. We simply do not have another 20 years to wait for it to occur naturally.

I spoke with a couple who were attending the rest areas of the forest. I thanked them for their service, after a long talk. I mentioned it must be quite disheartening to see the way people behave with regard to our home. They said that 98% of people actually care, a lot, but it is the 2% people think of when they see the destruction.

Only 2% … they should be an easy target for love vibes, for enlightenment energies. Let us help them to the best of our ability.

Gift from GAIA as I wander around thinking on these things. She is Love.

I now head up to the hotsprings of my home town to wash away what I have picked up here and to come back into alignment.

Crossing the Bridge of the Gods I stopped for a quick break and looked across the highway due to all kinds of birds calling. There was an eagle in the tree (left top) and others flying above … Freedom. Freedom has wings.

After my bath and wrap I drove along the river of the gorge. I sat for awhile to watch the wind surfers, they are amazing.

What a day, what a day.

I Am A River

Published August 16, 2020 by tindertender

Like a river I am gentle and calm with “seasons” (situations) of roaring flow that can destroy.

I spent two hours floating in the natural mineral waters of GAIA. Floating, stirring the hot waters with the cool waters. I tipped my head back and let the water cover my eyes, and I floated there, senses calm and still, receiving much needed love and acceptance from the natural world.

Someone constructed this fantastic art! I hope it remains for a time, and that if it falls over it will not land on anyone. (They left their beer can).

After a couple hours I headed back toward town for breakfast. I was so relaxed, a little smile upon my face. I was so grateful for the many blessings I had received while enjoying nature’s warm bath.

I decided not to go all the way home. Instead I went to another location and sat on the waters edge for a few more hours.

As the roots of the tree equal it’s branches, so do our inner worlds match the outer.

Balance …

While relaxing in this space a young boy walked into the center of this shallow part of the river with his mother, and with her assistance he climbed the biggest rock in the water. He shouted, “Dad! Look! I’m king of the world!”

I laughed heartily. And then I cried. I had to go into the river and splash water in my hair and my face to disguise my emotion. He was so precious! I stated softly, “Yes my boy, you ARE king of the world.”

Even now, many hours later, my eyes leak at his excited, innocent proclamation.

On my trip back home, I sang songs to GAIA and the elementals of the forest, of the waters, of all life which surrounded me. I sang sweetly to them as I used to do as a young lady, wandering in the forest day to day.

Here are a couple video compilations from the day. I am so grateful for the many blessings I have received.

Natural Beauty

The road called me for a joyride today. I got lost, and more lost, and lost deeper yet. Turn left, turn right, keep going for miles and miles. Finally having to ask a lady walking her dog how to get back to town. I crossed county lines repeatedly as I travelled the country roads.

I parked and walked for a very long time along an overgrown road/trail. Coming to this place, I see a log and a rock. They appear to be staring at me in the form of a turtle or tortoise. I reach into my purse for my pocket guide “Animal Speak” and I search for the meaning of this vision.

Turtle: (promise) Take your time in your pursuits.Trust in Mother Earth. You will have what you need.

Tortoise: (move through pressure) Pressures are easing and movement is slow but steady. Things will happen in the time and manner best for you. Focus on essentials.

The side of this rural road was peppered with beautiful flowers, small, yet many.

I took several videos and pieced them together. It is slightly long, but my oh my, the scenery!

I hope you enjoyed the journey with me. It brings such joy to be present with creation. I hope you will gain opportunity to commune with the natural world, and receive its blessings.
