Jade, Jade, Jade

Today was a wonderfully sweet day. Finally got the boys out of the house and up to Hawk Mountain around 3pm. Such a wondrous ride through majestic Kempton. Then the slug up the mountain.

Boys have an adventurous side that I am just not used to but Mom is trying her best to relax. If they want to peer out over the rocks my heart does not need to race!!

My eldest said that if he dashed to pieces on the rocks and died just know that he died happy! Oy!

Anyway on the way home we stopped by a lovely antique shop. I had been wanting to take the boys there and show them the way cool Katana that was for sale.

It was an enjoyable stay in this nice shop.

Just as we were exiting I noticed a Jade plant that had to be nearly 3ft tall. It was a beaut! The owner told me that his wife liked to give people a piece because it grew so rapidly. He promptly called his wife to the front.

Lets just say I left the shop a very happy woman.

Below is the picture of my new Jade plant that was gifted to me today. When she handed the lush sprig to me I held it in my left hand and I could feel the energy pulsating through that branch. Amazing.

In the photo below you will find a lovely ceramic pot that I purchased from Catalpa and you will see a wee little bright Jade oval peeking out of the soil. That wee piece of Jade was gifted to me by my beautiful friend Lala. You will also see in the square dish another Jade sprig that Lala gave me when I did a Reflexology session for her. To the right you will see a vase of the lovely flowers that are growing in my garden.

Not to mention my crystals :-) A flat of white quartz crystal found in Bethlehem is propping up my Jade tree.

Behind the tree is a tall Lemurian crystal and right next to it is a beautiful bright green Jade leaf.

Oh and that green pot in front is one of my son's creations as well as the little blue abstract ceramic hiding in background

It is so beautiful when someone gives you a living gift! Thank you Janette!

Finding My....

This evening around 7pm I took the boys to the pool to get in a swim in honor
of Summer Solstice. Pool was closed. I then convinced them to get the basketball
and go to the park.

For a while I watched them play a pick up game with some other teens that came to the park.

Just sat on the grass playing my djembe and doing very light meditation/mudras in appreciation
to mother earth, LIFE, Spirit....(God)....for my blessings and this beautiful season.

I was about to leave the park when I felt compelled to take a nice walk barefoot through the grass.

Suddenly the conversation I sat in on a week ago popped into my mind.

Someone said that when Dr. Andrew Weil has his new students he takes
them on a walk in a clover field and tells everyone to go find their four leaf clover.

How elusive is that? Well, I thought to myself....or shall I say Spirit said to me....
You will find your four leaf clover. I smiled because I have NEVER found a four leaf
clover before! You know the story.

Anyway I dropped to my knees and began looking...looking and looking...

Then looked up to see who was looking at me because there were lots of
people in the park watching children's baseball games.

I looked more...probably a total of ten minutes.

I was positive without a doubt I would find one. Then I said to myself, without defeat,
I will not find one here, is this clover anyway?

I got up to leave the park but was called over to this beautiful soulmate tree.
It was a tree that spoke to me as I passed by the first time. It was two trees growing
out of one trunk.

I went over to this tree and said hello. The tree told me to look down and I will find my
four leaf clover. So, dutifully and without doubt I dropped to my knees. There I looked
not even a minute...the thought came...will I find my clover? And within seconds of that
thought there was my four leaf clover.

Can not express the joy that I felt. It was like winning the lottery!

My beautiful clover is pressed between the pages of my book... ART PSALMS by Alex Grey

Affirming on so many levels.

Hope my story inspires you!
Peace/Shalom/Om Shanti!

Journey of You

Yesterday, in my morning meditation Spirit impressed upon me:

"Life is a Journey to the center of Being"

May everyone have beautiful day! Remember each day is one more step in the journey of You! Place your steps wisely, with joy and trust that all will work out for the best, your highest good. And once your foot is firmly planted -- pay it forward! Bless another with your radiant smile and loving heart.
