The sun light feels even brighter in contrast with the longer nights. I stroll through my back yard embracing every corner and summer memory. My garden is falling asleep under a thick coat of cover crops and the trees lost most of their leaves allowing for a beautiful view of the the mountain behind .
Yesterday I sprayed “ The Harmonizing Preparation” .
It is one of the ways I do Ceremony for the land and express my Gratitude for the nurturing, the love and the bounty provided to me and my family.
In the midst of a world in turmoil and change I am too small and yet I know that if I continue my work and partnership with Nature I do my part for a brighter future .
The Bees work tireless all summer for a generation of brood they will never meet . It is a lesson I absorbed in my core. It gave me strength knowing that every action we take today will bloom later in life or next season or in the lifetime of our grandchildren .
Facing the darkest part of the year it is Gratitude that will keep our dreams alive .
I invite you all to keep this Inner Light alive by writing ten reasons you are grateful for , give thanks to ten people , leave an offering in your garden or in any public park as a token of appreciation for Nature’s support.
The offering can be anything.: a song, a heart felt note, a rock, some bird seeds or just a sip of water.
And just before the evening’s end remember those who crossed over by lighting a candle.
With Gratitude , Light, Love and Peace.
