Snail messenger

There have been many snail messengers today, and part of it is due to the overnight rain. It left my little friends sliding in numbers over the wet grass this morning, and it is something that I don’t get to see back in the States. Despite the obvious reason of rain that caused the snail sightings, it is the message that comes along that I will take to heart.

“Home is where the heart is” ~Snail

I’ve been terrified the past two days with four large spiders in two days. Although they have a completely different spiritual meaning, I just can’t deal with spiders due to a traumatic experience back when I was a child.

Home is where the heart is leaves me pondering once more where my home truly is. Are the spiders driving me into one direction or another?

I’m being urged to slow down and reconsider what the big rush is. Snail is reminding me that I have been spending so much time focusing on my goals that I have been missing something that is right in front of me. I’m pausing to reconsider what the goal really has been, and what’s next.

I’m taking a break tomorrow and take time for myself. I will try and let go for a moment, to hopefully be able to see and realign myself. To arm myself with new strength and sanity, and to just be still.


Who am I, and why I write. I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I am the one, holding on to the silver lining when the skies are gray. I’m a believer that nothing is coincidence, but that everything has purpose. I’ve made my mistakes, don’t we all, but I see them as growing pains and they are a part of who I am today. I have lost myself in order to find myself, and I still do from time to time, but in a good way. I’m a big child who laughs until my belly hurts when life wants to be serious. Career wise: I’ve been there, done that, and I took “The jump” off the hamster wheel in an effort to change my future. I didn’t land all that soft, but I can say that I’m still proud to have found the courage to do it. Coming full circle, I had it all, and yet I was lonely and had nothing. Today I choose to be a collector of moments and I chase memories, instead of the material stuff. Less is more, and the motto is quality over quantity. You’d be amazed at how freeing it can be. I see myself as a free spirit that believes in an unconventional lifestyle. Somehow I go against the grain most of the times, not to rebel, but because it feels right to stay true to my unique and authentic self. It takes courage, and you often stand alone, but if you dare, you soon realize that it is the only way if you don’t want to lose who you are. Just like most, my past wasn’t easy and I come from a life that didn’t always give me the opportunity to be heard. Few related and even fewer cared to take the time. But that’s the past and it’s history, the future hasn’t happened and the “NOW” is truly all we ever have. In the end we all have a story to tell, and we all seek to be understood. We all yearn to be heard and accepted and still life is hard and our path is full of stumbling blocks. If we can see the lessons in adversity we may realize that the toughest moments are often our greatest teachers. There is a reason for the saying that the stars can’t shine without darkness, and it might be darkness that will show you the light.
It took a series of (un)fortunate events, to learn to glow through the pain, to learn how to dance in the rain. I believe in Magic and wonder, and the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. As an empath this old soul often feels a little too much, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Today, I am here to tell my story because I believe that it can help others. It is my hope to bring inspiration and strengths to you, while showing you that it can be done. I know you are out there, and I know you are suffering in silence. I am here to tell you that you are not alone, and your voice is being heard loud and clear. Hang on and be strong, transformation is yours. 
In light and love....Rhapsody Bohème 💙🦋

  1. I love the message of the snail! Thank you for sharing so many ideas that you find important in your life. Probably wise for all of us to slow down and do some musing about what’s important. I find that snails have ended up in more than one of my original songs. Here’s a link to a song I wrote when I was visiting friends in Toronto, sitting in their tiny back garden, and watching snails climb up a flower plant (which I didn’t realize snails could do…) Maybe it will help inspire you tomorrow!
