Nature Speaks - Take Time To Enjoy


Nature gives us so many beautiful moments.  Many of these moments go unnoticed.  We have become so driven to "do" that we are not remembering how to "be". 

The greatest gift of Nature is teaching us how to be – to be ourselves with out changing anything to please others or to conform to someone's idea of rightness, beauty, goodness, etc.

Nature does not live in the past.  Nature is always in the present.  This is why specific moments of beauty are unique, and will not be repeated.  Yes, an event may be similar.

What is a lovely moment?  It will be different for all of us.  Here is a short list of what different people consider a lovely moment.

  • New leaves unfurling in the spring
  • The birth of a baby animal or bird
  • Northern lights
  • Sunrise in the mountains
  • The sun sparkling on a river
  • The inflow of waves from the ocean
  • A bird singing in a tree
  • Seeing a butterfly on a flower
  • Watching wild flowers sway in the wind
  • Seeing leaves turn from green to gold

Angels Speak - A Life Lesson


The Angels tell us that we spend too much time in the past reviewing a sequence of events and either mourning what happened or trying to rework the event into a different ending.

The Angels tell us that by doing re-runs of our life, we are limiting what can happen in the future.  We play the movie so often that it becomes encoded in our cells and thus becomes a limiting belief.

The Angels tell us that we can learn from simple stories such as the one above, and that they have been created for us to learn from.  Although people often dismiss stories, our Ancestors always used stories for teaching.

Angels Speak - Futility


Futility means pointlessness or uselessness.  And yet, we keep trying to move through each day with grace.

What one sees as a useless action  actually does have a point for the person doing the action.  The action keeps us focused and occupied.  It provides a time of strengthening.  The act is repetitious and gives us some aspect of control through the action.  Life is funny that way.

Spirit Animal - Kingfisher's View


The Kingfisher is a master at his work – fishing.  He shares what it is like to be a master.

  • To be a master means to do the same thing over and over and over without tiring of it
  • Repetition makes the impossible possible because your body responds without thought
  • Technique is meant to be refined constantly.  No situation is ever exactly the same.  Similar, perhaps, but not the same.
  • Remember to stay humble
