Hi dear Elsa, what do you want to talk about, blog about, tell people about today?

About flowers, butterflies and “airy-fairy” things like that.

Because they dance, they don´t question, they just grow, they “joy”, they fulfil and dance.

Why is it so hard to get into the heads of you humans that you too are here to grow, to blossom, to fertilize, to flow in what is, to follow nature?

First you are a seed, the seed of pure potential.
And that seed did not come out of nowhere. It can from another flower, another plant.
The pure life force was shared there, from one to the other, from one to the next.

You are cared for.

A seed cannot just sprout from being a seed. You are embedded in nutritious, warm, motherly soil.
You get rained on, the roots start to grow and as your nails, your feet, your roots, your paws, your whatever-you-call-them sinks deeper into Earth – be it stone, sand, mush, soil, gravel, swamp or whatever – you open up more and more.

You poke your head through the surface and “bling” – there´s the sun!
Warming rays, heavy winds, even cold blizzards and hail storms love you, nurture you, shape you.

And what do you humans do then?

A lot of you stop there – stagnate, get stuck in what you call “the scars of the shaping”, waging a war of bitterness on the cold blizzards next to a desperate search for a forever-and-always-only-love-of-the-sun.
= Out of balance!

Open yourselves up, show your petals, receive with gratitude whatever comes in – rain, storm, sun, shower, hail, draught, soft breeze, mist, snow, daybreak or twilight.

You won’t wither and die.
That life force is in the seed even when the flower, the plant shrivels into a dry sheet.
That is the very moment when it releases it’s seeds, when the life force is expanding, is spreading!

May the force be with you!

Oh yes, they understand

001 (29)

Yesterday we were in Elswout for a long walk with our dear husky ladies, enjoying the coolness of the shade in between the magic trees in this the most beautiful oasis outside Haarlem.

At the end of the walk we ended up next to the deer, where on a sunny Sunday in the middle of summer you always have plenty of families with very young children checking the deer out.

There were quite some fawns born the past week and two adorable ones were pretty close to the fence, checking the kids out with the same curiousity they kids checked them out.

All of a sudden one of the children´s mother said;
“They are soooooooooooo cute, right!?”

Her daughter tilted her curly blond little head towards her and said “yes, mum” as her brother was breaking off twigs to feed the doe and her friends.

“Should we take them home?” mum asked – and that very second the four doe´s and two bucks jumped up, turned around and chased the fawns off to the middle of the field.

“Oh my G, what happened” mum said, looking puzzled.
“I have no clue” dad replied, and they were both shaking their heads.

Yeah, what happened?
Animals listen…..

My Middle Earth

coral-lake1

During our Writer´s Circle in June at Kathy´s in The Hague we got “My Middle Earth / My Perfect World” as our subject for our 10 minute speed writing excercise at the beginnig of our writing get together.
This is what came out from my pen…..
to be continued…..

Tentacles grew out of blue, yellow and green stars when Jorden was created.
They all had their different gifts and properties which were tangled into the creation of this mysterious, beautiful, mist filled planet.
Sparkles of love, joy and music showered down from the velvety heavens.
Bundles of warmth, compactness and diversity swirled around her – encompassing her with their rays.
From inside the core the tentacles started infusing wisdom, search and silence.
And in between, inside and surrounding all of this the whispers of the Great Mystery were planted.

Once completed – although completed is a word which does not do justice as She is bustling with movement, adventure and cocooning on all planes, continuously – the stars withdrew.
From above, below and around they stayed at a distance, watching, beaming and ever present.

There was a small, silver blue lake at the bottom of a steep hill. To one side of it the majestic mountains of Theo were towering towards the glimmering heights, being reflected in the water.
On one side of the lake lay a forest of old oak trees and young willows, all flowing with the winds. Sometimes you could hear a faint laughter coming out of the depths of the woods.
On the other side, a sea of green and flowers in all shades of blue, moss and pink were spreading towards the horizon of Eternity.

One of my Swedish pieces which I tried translating to English just now;

The Earth is not yours,
it is ours.

The Woods are not yours,
they belong to everyone.

The Tundra is not Norwegian, Swedish, Finnish, Russian….
it is Wolfarian, Bearian, Reindeerish, Wolverinish…

The Waters do not just refresh you,
they are feeding us all

There are no “lone wolves”,
there are packs

Look into my eyes,
we carry the same soul

You,
Me,
Her,
Mother Earth

A message from the Seahorses

About a week ago I got this beautiful communication sent  by Lyn, which she had had with the Seahorses moments before she e-mailed it.

I am really good at cramming my weeks and days too full, quite often with stuff that is fun – even all my work is fun – which is why I am only getting to post this today…

Now ,reading Lyn’s communication and message from the Seahorses below, I realize it is time for less doing and filling,  and  time for more expressing, feeling and being the connection of  the Now.

Thank you so much Lyn for sharing this one with us all!

“Here’s the communication I had with some seahorses this afternoon…….

Seahorses are elegant dancers
We are all over and in some places people don’t know about yet. We love the ocean and all that is around us.

Be verbally loving !
When you put forth verbal love,
You feel love,
When you feel love
You’re radiant and beautiful
When you’re radiant and beautiful, all around you will feel this ! This is one way to start !!

Don’t worry about what’s around,
Be One with where you are at the moment, you will feel the calmness, see the beauty, feel the warmth, love all around you !
When you do this, you raise your vibration, goodness, love and light comes to you and surrounds you !

You are one with Mother Earth,
go try this as you have everything to gain !!!!”
