As we say Good Bye & Move...

There is much to be thankful for as we prepare for the final stages of moving. We feel blessed to have such a kind and loving family. We are fortunate to have another place to go to and call home for a short while. One day again Tom & I hope to have a bit of heaven to resume what we originally started.

As we say good bye to our farm & home of 7 years to move in with my mom after my dad died unexpectedly. With the market and finances as so-so the home will be sold as a 'short sale', taking a loss and hoping to avoid foreclosure. However, need it be we will sign it over to the bank if the short sale doesn't work. With Tom (hubby) being off work and no income, combined with all the past medical bills of 6 years worth of C-diff we were behind anyway. No biggie though, we're going along with the flow!

I've done my dealing with things and all is as it should be. I must accept what is and the reasons. It is sad but I will focus on the good memories. Having the Organic Produce stand was wonderful and I will continue to garden at my moms.

I took a few pics here and there over the past few days (and years). This is us saying good bye...
The Pontiac sits out by the quiet country road for sale with high hopes of getting out from our payment. Tom has the truck backed up to his garage with a borrowed cargo trailer to load his shop items for one of the trips. I'm standing on the deck of our bedroom upstairs looking out.
The two trees you see above are 100+ year old Heirloom Apples! Yummy! Out past the garage is a heart shaped pond about and eighth of an acre or so in size.
The moving sale sign sits against an empty dog house we'll be selling at the sale. The crescent moon garden out front that is just beginning to come up for the year was tilled several years ago by my dad. The maple tree you see is only 4 years old and over 15 feet in height. I call this my dad tree. Long story but he accidentally tried to kill it one day when I had it in a pot as a sapling. It was growing with the tomatoes for the garden so he decided to pull it like a weed as it was no more than 1/2 a foot or so in height. Tom found it wilted in the sun a couple hours later. We picked on dad all the time about how he tried to kill my beautiful maple tree. This tree received daily blessings of love & thanks in the summer when I was outside. I will miss this tree and flower garden with all my Tickseed more than anything on the property! The picture below titled 'A Fairies View' is of the Tickseed in my moon garden.
As I stand on our deck upstairs I view a section of the back yard. I love the red maple trees and my clothes. Mmmm the smell of freshly sun dried clothes... no you can't eat them like sun dried tomatoes ;-) Our daughters tire swing hangs from the tree that my husband and dad placed there for her. Not only has she enjoyed it for years but the other grandkids of his loved it when they visited.
My upmost favorite thing about the property that was already here when we moved in was all the beautiful Peony flowers. Peonies are my favorite flower anyway so you can imagine how delighted I was to see 2+ acres lined with them from pink to white and bold magenta.
These are the ones out front. A pale pink and bold magenta. The rest of the property where the creek line runs is lined with white and bright pink peony flowers.
We've also had lots of garden from flowered ones to of course the Organic Produce for our stand and farm market.

The heirloom concord grapes... YUM YUM

As we leave I remind myself that the house needed a ton of work still, caught fire twice in the past year and had a new farmer across the road using the worst chemicals possible and making it impossible to continue organic farming. We just finished with the EPA and Wildlife Refuge yesterday and today becasue the new farmer killed the eco system (all life) that resided in the creek running the length of our property. All fish, crayfish and other life gone. Unconscious actions and no regard for the earth and her inhabitants is all this particular farmer cares about. It's all about money and contracts instead of doing what's right and practicing 'doing no harm'. As my earth sister put it today on the phone, "Kandice, the universe is screaming at you that it is time to leave! How many more signs do you need?" She is right, it is time for us to leave this home in many ways and for many reasons. In that being said, we are again thankful and know this is the 'right' path to follow.

Because of the upcoming move & sale please have patience with my blog. There may be short periods of time when I do not post or respond to a comment. I know you are all very understanding and thank you for this!

By the way... becasue of the recent actions and environmental issues from the new farmer, the fairies and friends will be coming with us on the move. They can not reside here and fall ill to the over used pesticides and chemicals now being carelessly spread throughout these beautiful acres and surrounding property. I'm happy to have them join us on our journey.

Pan the Satyr ~ More Fairy Art

Pan the Satyr ~ image Copyright Kandice Thompson

This is Pan, the Satyr, the newest image to be added to the Fairy Realm Collection. Legend states Pan was the Greek god of shepherds and flocks, who was especially popular in Arcadia. He is a son of the god Hermes. He was depicted as a satyr with a reed pipe, a shepherd's crook and a branch of pine or crown of pine needles. He had a wrinkled face with a very prominent chin. On his forehead were two horns and his body was hairy. He was a swift runner and climbed rocks with ease. Pan belonged to the retinue of Dionsys.

Pan was also a god of fertility, unbridled male sexuality and carnal desire. He chased nymphs through the forests and mountains in the shape of a goat. Pan was not very liked by the other Greek gods.

Pan and his fellow friends & family play a vital role in the fairy realm. His youthful and rowdy ways sometimes gave him the reputation of a fowl creature. Pan is actually quite loving and full of passion towards the females. He will go to any extent to woo them and make them feel like the beautiful goddesses they are. Pan can usually be spotted around grapes and raspberries. He will often gather the fruits to make a delicious wine to share with the entire community. He is also known for being the 'party animal' of the realm.

Some believe Pan and the Fairy realm to be only myth but many others, including myself give the legends more consideration and truth that one might think. Enjoy!

Muscovy Ducks ~ Hatching Babies with Momma

Princess helping her babies hatch

A few days ago our female Muscovy Duck hatched her eggs. Muscovies are a water fowl from South America. They perch in trees, eat bugs, veggies and even meat. For over 3 years we have raised these beautiful water fowl for pets and pest control. They skim the shallow water and eat the mosquitoes, search the organic gardens for horned worms and rotten veggies. They are a delight to have around!

We have one male and female named Prince & Princess. The red crunckle around Prince is normal as is the curved beak. The more red the better the male appeals to the female. Prince is the spawn of King. King was a 30+ pound Muscovy that made his way about 4 miles down the road to another farm with female muscovies. He is living happily there and no one seems to mind. Prince loves to catch cherry tomatoes in his mouth and he loves to follow you around the property shaking his tail like he was a dog.

This is Prince

The muscovies are very interactive and involved with each other and the process of the babies hatching. We knew when they were close becasue both ducks gathered around the nest eagerly awaiting the new life. Out of 14 eggs all but 1 hatched. We have 13 adorable babies!

Princess helping one out of the shell

I've studied the habits of the Muscovy ducks these past several years and can tell you just about anything. I visit and interact with them daily. They make fantastic companions and feathered friends! Often they will perch in various areas of the property giving a neat and unique feel to the land. I hope to someday write a book about life with Muscovy Ducks and raising them. Their history is fascinating and they were even used in one of the World Wars to spy on the enemy. They are extremely intelligent birds!

Life with Muscovy Ducks is simply wonderful! We will be taking two or three of them with us when we move in the next few weeks. The rest of the babies will need to be adopted out.
Many of the baby ducks will change color to all white, white & black and some will stay brown like this momma duck. We have had solid white females in the past with all blue eyes. They are a stunning creature.

So how do we tell a male from a female? In about 2 to 3 weeks the babies will be large enough to see who has fat wide legs and who has delicate legs. This is how we have always found out the sex of each duck and it has been 100% accurate.

Hope you all enjoyed the babies hatching. We feel fortunate to have such wonderful creatures as friends and part of our family! Several of these ducks will be available soon on the Animal Adoption page of the Giving Earth website.

Weekly LUNAR Reading and MAGICAL Attributes: May 26th - June 1st

Moon Phase:Waxing Crescent - 7% of Full (first quarter)
Full Moon on June 7th

Moon's Place
(moon enters Leo on Thursday, May 28th)

Lunar Reading:

The law of Love & Attraction are in your forecast this week. Either a new love or a renewed sense of passion are in order. If you are feeling alone then don't fret on what you are lacking. Focus on your desires becasue you are worth everything you can manifest and dream of. Don't lack in your life becasue someone else says you have unrealistic goals or views. You are the creator of your own destiny.

The current moon phase is in sync with drawing in a new or rekindling a relationship or love. In some cases this may not be a new person but a rekindled relationship that you are already in. The sparks will fly in a positive way early this week and throughout the middle. In other cases and for some of the readers this means you have a special someone right around the corner. Don't turn a blind eye to the gifts right in front of you or those new outings you are about to take. Skepticism is not your friend at the moment. Place your worries and troubles aside to allow this new friendship to develop and bloom into a stronger, passionate and loving manner. You are about to see and experience a more meaningful relationship than you ever thought possible.

By the end of the week you are reminded to not let ones self be controlled by their own ego. Things are good and can stay that way but it takes commitment and communication on all parts. See one of my previous posts on Nature's Remedies for Arousal & Passion.

For the Magic Doers & Light Workers:

Now is the ideal time for any magic and light working practices. The waxing crescent moon offers us a valuable time to draw what we desire toward us. This is especially effective right now with relationships, arousal and passion as mentioned above.

Another things you can do is try carrying a piece of Rhodochrosite (also known as Inca Rose Stone, Raspberry Spar, Manganese Spar). Rhodochrosite comes in a variety of shades from bright red to soft shades of pink, and opaque forms with swirling patterns. Rhodochrosite is an excellent conductor of energy. This beautiful tumbled stone is excellent for communication in a relationship. It is also known to stimulate compassion and gives off an overwhelming feeling of love.

Your Mission for this week:

Be closer than you thought possible to those around you. Many of your close friends and family or even a potential partner are not sure how you are feeling lately. Your miscommunication or lack of it has many feeling boggled. Try not to continue to feel down n your self or on a certain situation that is really out of your control or hands. Work on your communication skills and how you come across to others. Treat yourself to a deep meditation and connect with your subconscious self. Remember not to allow yourself to become over melodramatic in any situation. You are loved by all those around you, just don't take them for granted.

Feel free to come back to the blog and post how you spent your day. Share your happenings with fellow readers. :-)

Message from the Ancient Ones

Upon my own recent emotional & physical battles I felt it necessary to contact the ancestors and ancient ones for advice. During deep thought & meditation I received the following message:

A battle you feel you are fighting. Alone you are not as we all march along. We are the armored men and women of the past. We hold our mighty sword to heed this battle at last. Strength and Will through it all, is what your soul must use to fight. Once your battle is won you will begin new flight. Your victory is close to home and you will win this without doubt. No longer alone should you feel. We are all here to aid while you heal.

Message received May 25th, 2009 1:00 pm (est)

I feel this message doesn't apply to just me, so I am sharing it with anyone who wants to read and resonate as well.

Water Ritual and Meditation to Cleanse your Spirit/Soul

original image by Kandice Thompson

I have a small meditation for you that I have created to cleanse yourself during the new moon This cleansing/meditation allows you to project positive vibes towards others and the universe as a whole. It will also aid in renewing your outlook on situations or circumstances. As the moon cycles so do we. It is time for your rebirth just as the moon, planets and everything must cycle so do you.

This meditation/ritual is sweet, simple and short. I honestly believe there is no excuse for not practicing in your own self healing and love, let alone transmitting it to others. Time is what you perceive it to be, saying you don't have the time says you are selfish and not only do you not love yourself, but you have lost your universal love and connection for others. There are no excuses in the eyes and heart of the universe. It is your choice to to cleanse your soul/spirit and overall state of being. It is also your choice to ignore your physical, emotional and spiritual self. The choice is always yours.

Rainbow Tree's Water Cleansing Meditation:

What you will need:
Your naked body
a shower

Place yourself in a warm shower. You are to do a visualization while in the shower. Standing away from the water so your head is leaning back, let the water droplets fall upon you. Visualize each drop of water as illuminating light being absorbed into your body. Concentrate on each droplet of water being packed full of affirmative words 'love' & 'gratitude'. Each time a droplet touches you the love and gratitude is released into your body. Allow the droplets to say the worlds 'healthy' & 'honest', then 'compassion'. Know deep down in your core of existence you are absorbing these positive affirmations. As each one touches you, see how the water from the ocean is flowing through the lakes, rivers and streams and into your home, pipes and down upon you from the very shower faucet you are standing under. Feel the connection of the water to you. You can not survive with out this water. You drink it, cook with it, bath in it. You are made up mostly of water as is the Earth that we call our mother. Feel your connection to her. Continue to absorb the positive vibrations the water is pouring over your entire body. Face the shower faucet where the water is spraying from. See the droplets and their reflections. Feel the comfort of the warmth throughout your body. Continue to picture these drops of water exploding on to your body with these healing powers. The water is filling you with love and compassion for your self and all life that is connected to you. Close your eyes and allow the water to cleanse your face and eye lids. It is washing away all your negative thoughts, physical ailments and illnesses. You will not allow negative thoughts or concerns to consume you at this time. When you feel fully rejuvenated as though you are stress free and could take on the world... then your meditation is finished. Standing in the shower thinking of the stuff gone wrong will only allow you to absorb those negative thoughts. It is important to let it be, release what is no longer needed or wanted and allow new to develop.

When you are finished, accept yourself by standing there as you are in the shower, fully nude. This is how your were born into this world. You are beautiful both inside and out. The beauty people see doesn't come from your physical appearance it comes from the way you show them and portray who you truly are. Your beauty comes from your actions towards yourself and others. We've always had the choice to do what feels right in our heart or ignore and dismiss it. It is and always will be your choice, no one else can do or change it for you.

After your meditation is over think hard about how fortunate you really are. You live in a home that provides you with clean, warm running water. You are blessed to have this essential necessity.To many around the globe this is not handy or convenient. Do not take for granted what others lack. We are fortunate to have this clean wonderful element available.

Weekly LUNAR Reading and MAGICAL Attributes: May 19th - 25th

Moon Phase:Wanning Crescent - 27% of Full (fourth quarter)
New Moon on May 24th

Moon's Place
(moon enters Taurus on Saturday, May 23rd)

Lunar Reading:

There is a good chance you've been having detailed dreams recently. The past few nights may have been interrupted by you suddenly awakening in the middle of the night or the wee hours of the morning. There are bits of information that you can't remember upon awakening but throughout the day you seem to be recalling some of the images or thoughts. You are experiencing something similar to a matrix affect. Currently you are conscious in this world or dimension but part of your mind is recalling and still living in your dream state or other world/dimension. Maybe the best way to describe it for some of you is an observer mode or where you feel like you aren't really you and you are observing your surroundings. For others this is similar to an out of body experience and that is exactly what it is just not in full measure. All of his is very common and you are simply walking and seeing in more than one dimension or world.

Most folks wouldn't even recognize this or they would chuck it off as lack of sleep, coming down with some illness or they may even pop a few pharmaceuticals or sleeping aids to release the experience. I highly discourage any type of blocking. You are finally beginning your journey that you have been seeking for so very long. There is nothing wrong with you or what is happening. You are simply evolving and having your prayers answered. Be open to the insight you are receiving. If your dreams seem negative, try deep meditation to see the source. Many times it is only us that deems the dreams as a nightmare or negative. We have been programmed by society and histories standards to what is considered beautiful and/or ugly.

Try sleeping with a cleansed crystal or stone for a few nights. Preferably rose quartz to aid in an overall loving and safe feeling.

For the Magic Doers & Light Workers:

Any magical or light work this week should be done now but none should be done on the 22nd and 23rd. The moon will be in a void and not visible for you to see. At this time it is requested you only leave gifts for the elementals (fairies & friends). Any magic work besides that to ward of negativity or self cleansing shall not be done at this time. It is time for you to relax and honor your sacred self.

On Sunday, May 24th the Moon is entirely New at 8:11 am (EST). Anytime in this 24 hour period you may wish to do a New Moon Blessing. This blessing can be done in or outdoors.

During a New Moon it is a perfect time to plan or begin creating your own personal Book of Shadows to pass down for generations to come. I have many of these that I have created. A nice book or journal that allows you to keep track of blessings, spells, natural remedies, dreams, etc is perfect to write in and look back upon to reflect on. Almost everything you read on my blog is from one or more of my personal Book of Shadows. You may also want to consider building a Moon Garden or adding to your already created Moon Garden.
Rainbow Tree's ~ New Moon Blessing
Pray to the moon when when only her aura is seen.
Though I can not see her body I know she still gleams.
Her beauty though shadowed is still bright.
She brings me renewal with this sacred light.
New energy and light for tomorrow.
I will be released of any remaining sorrow.
Pray to the moon when only her aura is seen.
Only a sliver of her beauty and powers do gleam.
I thank the moon and the moon thanks me.
I connect with all that is, even the lone standing tree.
It is time for Luna to set my spirit free.
Tomorrow I will begin a new way to see.
So mote it be.

Your Mission for this week:

It's all about your rebirth as a spiritual being and entity this week. Like the new moon you too are cycling and renewing yourself. To help aid in your evolving process try searching my archives for past Meditations and/or Rituals on self cleansing and rebirth. I will be posting a water cleansing within the next hour for you to try.

Feel free to come back to the blog and post how you spent your day. Share your happenings with fellow readers. :-)

**Note: I've now added a Monthly Celestial Calendar to the Giving Earth website plus many other features I think you'll all enjoy.

More Art from the Fairy Realm

As promised here is a new drawing from the Fairy Realm. See the latest post: Interacting with the Fairy Realm & Fairies for a better understanding and a vast amount of information about their Magical Realm and plants.

The above image is of the flower called 'Weeping Damsel'. This gorgeous trumpet like flower is highly scented and provides an abundance of sweet nectar for the fairies, butterflies, hummingbirds and bees. Many of the fairies gather honey created specifically from the nectar of the Weeping Damsel. The honey is then used as medicine for such things as easing a fairy child's cough or sore throat from environmental allergies (man made of course). The honey is also used a natural sweetener for many dishes and drinks. I would love to try one of their honey meads made with this flower!

To learn more about how I first met with the fairies please click the above link. I will be posting more of the images from their realm when they are made available to me.

From the Fairy Realm ~ Interacting with Fairies

Dancing Fire Fairy

I love all elemental creatures in this universe. Since a child I have always had a strong bond with the Fairy Folk and their Magical Realm. Around the age of four is when I first began to speak with them. I had seen them before but there was no verbal conversations, only giggles and silly child like games. When I was alone outside I would begin to hear their voices and see little bright flashes of light whoosh back and fourth and around and about. It was at this time I made a promise to them to do no harm in their realm. I was asked to be a messenger between their world and ours. When the promise and agreement was made I gifted with their sight. This allowed me to fully see their world but I could still walk in ours as well.

They are here, all around us. Many times you look right past them becasue they have cloaked their homes, gardens and cities for protection and out of fear. The fairy realm has begun to grow week from negative thoughts, pollution, greed and unconscious actions. The time for me to do more than listen and learn in their realm has come. I have been instructed for the past couple of years to share their messages. I do this in many forms, one of them being the oracle messages from fairies I post on this very blog. All the organic gardening and sustainable living my immediate family has done has been for the planet as a whole but it was requested originally by the fairy folk themselves. The fairies have come to many with their messages. They have been the care takers of Mother Earth for thousands of years.

Recently the fairies have allowed me to draw some of the beauty that thrives in their realm. As we are facing extinction of many of our plants and wildlife so does the fairy realm. They would like to show those of you that can not yet see the realm what beauty it beholds. This is a reminder of what will be lost in all dimensions if we continue to allow the pollution and negativity. The past couple of months I have been shown specific treasured items from the fairy realm to share with you. I am to share many more of these whimsical images of their reality and world in the upcoming months and days.

I am to ask of you and make a reminder that if you are fortunate enough to come across an uncloaked realm do not take any items or pose a threat. Leave a treat or gift for the elemental care takers of this magnificent world and her inhabitants.

Often I leave gifts for the fairies at my home and even at nature preserves and parks. The fairies can not tolerate genetically modified food or crops. If you offer them a treat or gift it must be entirely organic and natural, no exceptions. Homemade honey biscuits are a favorite of the fairies. They only require one small biscuit as they are tiny beings. Offer them a couple teaspoons of organic clove honey poured into a rock that has a dip in it. The fairies really wouldn't appreciate a plastic dish or other item left out in their realm. Use what they use such as a hollowed out stump or as I mentioned above a rock that has a shallow bowl like area or ring in the center. The fairies love raw nuts as well and will spice or cook them up to their own tasting. Only raw verses cooked or dry roasted/salted should be given to the fairies. If you have any organic cotton or hemp laying around your home, feel free to make blankets in six by three inch rectangles. This is perfect for the fairies to use as blankets or if they want to sew a new article of clothing. If you want to leave the best gift of all, plant an heirloom fruit tree on your property. Create offerings under the tree when it is in full bloom and when the fruit begins to ripen. This is when the fairies are around the tree more than any other time.

If any thoughts of capturing a fairy arise in your mind they can and will most likely leave the area. Even though I have been allowed to draw items from their realm, I am not permitted to draw the fairies themselves. I was once honored by the Fire Fairies and becasue I am a fire sign they gave me permission and subconsciously one was caught on film dancing above our fire.

I can tell you that one reason many of the fairies won't allow drawings of them is becasue of the many different elemental qualities and looks to them. It would take an eternity to draw all the elementals. Secondly, becasue of their looks some of the elementals might be considered 'different' because of what many have been taught by some religions. Each element in our world has a fairy or sprite/diva clan that's the guardian and caretaker of that element. For example there are water divas, maple tree fairies, grass sprites, fire fairies, apple blossom fairies, etc. You get the idea. Society would consider only some beautiful and others that are different might be judge as scary only becasue they appear with these different elemental qualities.

It has been instructed that I am to the best of my abilities to answer any questions you may have about the fairies or their realm. I have been asked not to give their names, or exact locations of any known realms/dwellings. As requested by them I will continue to draw and post their sacred plants, friends & elements from their realms.

The one message that is always stronger than any other from the frairies: Love all creation and existence as your universal brother and sister.

These are one of the most important blooming flowers in all the fairy realms. They provide the fairies and all flying creatures (butterflies and dragonflies too) with tea, tinctures, remedies and much more. This plant is known as 'Infrodisiam' in the fairy realm.

Called 'Singing Luna' to the Fairies. This stunning and extremely full flower blooms only when there is more than half of an illuminated moon. Anything less and the flower can not bloom. This beauty usually blooms for approx. 2 weeks every month. The end of the petals seem to glow when the moonlight reflects of the flower.
Upon one of the castle walls in a large city cloaked by Wild Morning Glories was this large piece of Fairy Art. I did my best to portray their image with my colored pencils. I was told each curve and curl streaming from the feather had different meaning, almost calender like. Below the feather was ancient and sacred script.

During the Spring time the fairies celebrate fertility and abundance. There was quite a ceremony in the background as these two butterflies did a seductive dance around the 'Infrodisiam' flower. The hearts represent the love and intense energy you could see and feel as they danced. The flower became their bed and place of commitment to one another.


I hope you all have enjoyed this well overdue message from the fairies and can take or learn something from it. Our impact on this planet is astonishing so we must be careful and conscious with all our actions. We are part of a much bigger world than most of us currently see. Please open your minds, eyes and hearts for a universal healing and connection that awaits.

When more images are drawn from the realm I will share them with all of you as I have been requested to do.

Peace, Love & Blessings of Abundance,

Rainbow Tree

Oracle Message from the Fairy Realm: Family, Children and Parents

Original Drawing ~ Image copyright © Rainbow Tree (aka Kandice Thompson)

From time to time the Fairy folk feel a need to relay a message for those that are open to listening. When needed or as requested from the fairy realm, an oracle reading with the Fairies is done to receive their guidance and thoughts. I do this for myself and anyone else who wants to listen or read. Their messages always resonates with many around the globe.

The message received this reading is:
"Family, Children and Parents"

The fairies understand the importance and unlimited value family units offer. A fairy family never allows hurt feelings to fester or manifest. Any misunderstandings or issues are immediately discussed by sharing their honest feelings with one another.

The fairy realm is urging you to face up to any ill feelings you may have with a family member. Apply all aspects of your human self and spiritual self to aid in the healing. When you allow this, a positive change will occur for you. It is predicted in the fairy realm that an unexpected occurrence will allow for a happy outcome between you and this member of family.

This message may also indicate and suggest that someone in your family is soon to be wed or they are with child. Meaning you are about to receive a new member to your family. It is possible it could even signify the return of a family member with whom you have lost contact with for quite some time.

These changes are coming to you gently on the wings of the fairies. When the fairies bring such exceptional gifts it can only mean you will derive enjoyment from the gift or situation. Know that you are safe, loved & protected at all times.

The fairies feel you should write or verbally aloud repeat the following affirmation daily:
I have an open and loving heart. I am free to feel compassion and love for all my family.

This message was received on May 13th, 2009

Weekly Lunar Reading & Magical Attributes: May 12th - 19th

Moon Phase:Wanning Gibbous - 89% of Full (third quarter)

Moon's Place
(moon enters Aquarius on Thursday, May 14th)

Lunar Reading:

The negativity around you and the emotions running on empty are a bit overwhelming. Chances are you are crying at the drop of a dime or your temper is getting the best of you. You are not alone in the excessive emotional state you are experiencing.

Many of us are finding it difficult to focus on what we call the normality of our life. Maybe this is becasue the 'normal' is in need of changing. If you are experiencing the same emotions or outbursts over and over again then the pattern has to be changed. It is up to you to change this, no one can do it for you. Give yourself a little 'me' time each and everyday. Reevaluate your current emotional state. See what it is you want to change and then change it. Focus on the positive verses the negative and emphasize that you are receiving and feel an abundance of gratitude around you.

We tend to let the words or actions of others create who we are. We take things seriously when they shouldn't be or we read more into a snide or even comical remark or gesture. If there is something that was said or done that is bothering you, then it is up to you to bring it to the surface and solve the problem/issue. There may be no problem or issue in the eyes of others. It may simply be how you are taking things personally becasue of your current emotional state of being.

By the middle of the week things will begin to look a little brighter but you must enable this to happen. Stop putting off what needs to be done and do not under any circumstances reflect negative thoughts or gestures upon your emotional or physical self. You must create who you are physically, emotionally and spiritually. Be happy with you, after all you were created this way for reason. You are unique, an individual and you are loved. Walk with your head held high, show your natural beauty and know you are a magnificent creature on the earth. You are part of a much bigger picture than you are currently allowing yourself to see.

For the Magic Doers & Light Workers:

Allow your imagination to be given more thought and consideration. Apply your imagination as though it were more of your reality than what you perceive your current state of consciousness to be.

It's time to invoke your imagination with one of my spells/meditations. Spark your creative impulses and stimulate an inspiring atmosphere with this aromatic meditation.

Invoke Imagination
a Meditation/Ritual by High Priestess Kandice (Rainbow Tree)

In a small glass dish blend the following pure essential oils together:
1/2 tsp extra virgin olive oil or other light base blending oil
3 drops of sandalwood oil
3 drops sage oil
3 drops bergamot oil
Blend oils together and place in an aromatherapy lamp. Sit within a foot or two from the oil and make yourself comfortable. Close your eyes and begin some deep breathing. In your head, count to three as you inhale deeply through your nose. Exhale through your mouth on the count of six. As you are doing this visualize specks of pure bright white energy particles being absorbed into every organism of your body through your nose. When you exhale visualize the particles for a short time coming out as black matter that is the negativity. As you continue to breath and exhale, visualize the matter being released as getting lighter and lighter until it is coming out the same as the energy being inhaled. Once you begin to smell the aroma repeat the following aloud three or more times:
All I want to see may now come visit me.
I am ready to be shown all my existing creativity.
Hold this vision so I may always see.
Invoke the imagination I was meant to see.
It is now so mote it be.

Your Mission for this week:

Take care of yourself and be kind and compassionate to those around you. Manifest how you want to be treated by others. Knowing you are a deserving person of the best type of treatment, love, compassion and kindness. Treat others in the same manner you want to receive. If you are having trouble or feel you are in a slump or cave, then try one of my past rituals/practices for a cleansing of your soul/spirit. Search my blog or see my archives for many meditations on cleansing and charging the most important tool you have, you!

Feel free to come back to the blog and post how you spent your day. Share your happenings with fellow readers. :-)

When we get down we must get back up

pic of our home a couple of years ago

Things have been a little rough here at our home and farm but I hope they will soon begin to look up. We are in the final stages of preparing to make the big move back home with my mom since my dad unexpectedly passed away. It seems I have been battling with my own personal 'demons' for the past few weeks. I had to do some deep visualizing and ask for help from the ancestors to avoid what felt like a nervous breakdown. While sitting on the couch the other night before bed, I fell asleep. The dream/vision was quick and simple. I was in a foreign country, desert like surroundings. I was being stoned to death simply becasue I was an opinionated woman that did not conform to fundamentally male dominated religious standards. After this vision I stopped complaining that we are using coolers for our food in place of a broken fridge. Instead of being angry at the world for losing our home, Tom being denied unemployment and us having zero income since February, I decided those things were ok. They weren't killing me. Yes, bluntly put it does suck. I have my health back after 6 years of being in and out of the hospital and a frail 96 pounds. I currently have this roof over my head and when we leave I will have someone else's, but it is still a roof and a home with running water and electricity. These are things I have temperately done without before becasue of recent circumstances. I'll have my days and emotional outbursts. Who wouldn't with so much going on? At least I know that we'll will manage and make it through. I have my husband, my daughter, my mom, my heath and a place to go. Isn't that all we really need anyway?

Since we have been packing more, I can't believe the amount of other 'stuff' we have come across. Enough stuff to have another moving sale! I guess that's what happens when you begin to simplify and prepare to go from a 2,300 square foot home down to two bedrooms of someones upstairs and a shared bathroom. I haven't had nor really been able to sweep the floors in a week or so. You can imagine with dogs and half a dozen or so kitty cats. Ug, I can't believe I just shared that. Reality hurts sometimes I guess. ;-) I still have to find homes for all but 2 of the kitty cats. I had an adoption page on my website but since it is being reconstructed becasue of the move, I haven't had a change to revamp and reestablish that particular part. If you live in Ohio and want to adopt a beautiful furry friend, let me know!

Speaking of my website... During the day when I am taking a break or struggling with a nicotine fit (officially been 29 days since I quit smoking tobacco) I sit here at the computer and catch up on some online work. The website is being totally revamped. I think all of you will like the new site and shop! From my Original Drawings and Canvas Paintings to my Internationally & Nationally Nominated Photography, Affirmation Ornaments, Oracle Readings, Officiant/Ministry Services to viewable Meditation & Relaxation Videos plus Green & Sustainable Living Tips!

I was really excited about all the updates on my website so I hope all of you get a chance to visit the Giving Earth and see how far Ive come with it.

Someday I will add a section with my clay and pottery items. I received 25 pounds of earth clay from a friend for my birthday in April. I do love to rub my fingers in the damp cool clay. i find it therapeutic and meditative. I can get lost for hours just shaping and reshaping to only end up with nothing but the clay going back in the bag at the end.

I recently became active with the Face Book thing. Feel free to add me as your friend if you are on there. Please mention you found me from my blog. This way I don't think you are some spam or fem bot out to get me. ;-)

Alone I stand in these woods.
Nothing but silence from the creatures that feel the shared sorrow.
We grieve for the loss of the woodsman.
Alone I stand here waiting.
Feeling unsure of what tomorrow may bring.
His flesh now nothing more than ash.
Alone and broken is how I feel.
I pray for the woodsman to still guide me.
His spirit soars high above my branches.
Alone and I can not touch or see him.
Lingering tears leave behind the taste of salt.
We weep from his departure of this earth.
Alone I feel in the darkened shadows.
Seeking the drumming of the heartbeat from the woodsman.
His drum sits alone with no master to play.
Alone I stand in these woods.
Nothing but silence from the creatures that feel the shared sorrow.
We grieve for the loss of the woodsman.

Weekly Lunar Reading & Magical Attributes: May 5th - 12th

Moon Phase:
Waxing Gibbous - 88% of Full (second quarter)
Full Moon on Saturday, May 9th at 12:01 am

Moon's Place
(moon enters Scorpio on Thursday, May 7th)

Lunar Reading:

The full moon of May is also known as the Flower Moon. April brings us much rain that produce soggy and wet soil. This is perfect for the flowers, trees and other plants that begin blooming under the Flower Moon of May.

Commitment issues may be rising but not in the normal manner or fashion you would expect. This issue is now in your hands. Decide what and/or who it is that you are committed to. Your scattered thoughts are most likely interfering with your subconscious and inner gut instincts. It is you that is usually the committed one in a relationship, event or situation. Now the roles seemed to be reversed and your lack of commitment not just to yourself but to others seems to be interfering with your overall state of being. Now is the time to focus on the commitments with spirit and love. Allow them to live and be in perfect harmony. This will ease your emotions, drifting thoughts and issues of concern.

You are urged to meditate daily, even if it's a minimal 5 to 15 minutes. You need this 'you' time to deeply breath in the positive energy and exhale the negative. Your emotional and physical self need a daily time out where you can be one with you and spirit. Call upon your ancestors and past loved ones to aid in your situation or experience. They are always there when you ask for their assistance. Though we don't always get an immediate response, they are there always at your side like an emotional warrior destroying your pain and anger. They are the wings that protect us from harm.

For the Magic Doers & Light Workers:

Of course the upcoming full moon is always the perfect time to cleanse your stones, crystals and other magical and light working devices. As I always mention, don't forget about the strongest and most important tool you!

There are many meditations and blessings that can be done at any time during this week with the upcoming full moon. Check out my archives for past Full Moon Blessings & Meditations or use the search box in the upper left hand corner of my blog.

The cosmic voice is seeking a more positive approach to your practices. Please do not affirm or dwell on or in the negative. Many religious blessings start off with how poorly shaped or misguided we are. They portray the planet as dark, ill and dis-eased instead of affirming it is full of love, kindness and gratitude. It's time to rethink the way you carryout your magical and light work to others and the universe. For years I have personally done magical work from all aspects and religions but have changed their wording or added my own uniqueness to portray a more positive and productive ritual and outcome. Many are doing this after seeing the recent scientific facts and evidence produced from Dr. Masaru Emoto and others about the effects positive and negative affirmations have on water. We as humans and the planet are primarily made of this element so we too must factor in the overall effect.

Your Mission for this week:

As strange as it may sound to some of you, your mission this week is to bless yourself. A while back I shared a Blessing & Ritual for an Abundant Garden. The ritual can be done and made into a daily supplement as well. All I ask this week is for you to either do the blessing/ritual on at least one living plant you have or use it on yourself. That is all I ask. I simply want everyone to be healthier, happier and full of gratitude. :-) Abundant Garden Blessing and Ritual.
