Vampire hunt

It’s not even 5AM and I’ve been on the hunt for the past hour. My body itches like crazy as red welts are building all over. The ceiling is stained with my blood from the ones that fed on me, got caught, and paid with their lives. It’s mosquito season and no matter how careful I am or was, somehow the annoying blood suckers got inside. The windows I open have screens and there haven’t been any moments leaving the light on to attract them towards the golden glow. I’ve had them before, maybe one or two, but tonight it is as if a nest hatched in my room. I have grown restless and although I can’t feel them sitting on me, I know they have been there as another spot starts to itch and swell up. Other times you can hear their humming sounds around your ears and head as a warning sign of approach. I know there is at least one more, but I can’t find him. He got away, for now and I can’t have another repeat of the same scenario tonight. I already feel overtired and sick, I’m in for what might be a long day.

There, one followed the light into the kitchen and this time he didn’t get away. Perhaps I give sleep another try…wish me luck.

Well, before this actually got to post there was another in my room, and yet another that got away. I think I might have broke a wooden panel from my Lattenrost (Boxspring), and I am giving up on sleep for tonight, sipping my morning coffee at 6:27 AM.

Hello Tuesday….


We are the co-creators of our life and the time is now. More than ever are we needed to support Mother Earth and each other. Together we discover and explore our unique gifts in times of strengths, in times we lean on each other, and in times when we learn from each other. This blog started as an outlet and what I ultimately called my “Warriors Journey.” It was a way to document the ups and downs of my life, sharing my hardships as well as my successes. It showcased the struggles, but more important the ways of how to overcome them. Although we are warriors each and every day, I realized that having to be a warrior, comes from a place of pain. I decided to rename this blog, and “Phoenix Rising” now stands for the story of overcoming such a painful place. My motivation for this blog hasn’t changed and I hope to share inspiration and hope, to create a sense of belonging, a space of being heard, and connecting with like minded beings who instill a sense of oneness. We are never alone, and we are unstoppable in the pursuit of what sets our soul on fire. Who I am in a nutshell... 
I am an energy healer and Reiki Master. I am surviving a chronic disease that I’ve sent into remission three times since my initial bout, 15 years ago. I continuously challenge the status quo and by doing so I change my stars. I am a believer that anything is possible. I am a hopeless romantic and I believe that true love exists on various levels. I am an optimist that will always see the glass as half full. I am a dreamer, believing in endless possibilities. Not even the sky is the limit. I have jumped off of the hamster wheel, and I am writing a new chapter. I am chasing my Nirvana to support my most authentic self. This is my story, I am that Phoenix and I am rising from the ashes. Namaste 🙏🏼💙🦋

    1. 😔 a dear friend recommended a product called skin so soft from Avon. I heard about it before and even remember how the bottle looks like, but didn’t realize it would help with mosquitos. I’m in it lol


      1. Yes my gardening friends in scotland use it. It really helps apparently! I’m still itching!

        Then this morning I stuck my hand in a package that arrived in the post – before remembering someone had posted me some cactus cuttings! My hand is having a rough week! X

  1. Unfortunate Rhapsody. The bitey things are hatching out of sequence to the bird nesting, so more of us are experiencing bites. For me it has been only the odd mosquito, but deer flies and midges have been having their fun. I have itchy bites all over the place. Vampires indeed!😞

  2. Oh, my dear, I hope you got some soothing cream to put on those bites? It really helps. Apart from a great big net, I was telling Kris on one of her posts, there is this amazing moisturising oil made by Avon called Skin So Soft Original Dry Oil Spray, its really cheap, isn’t really for mossies so isn’t all chemically and I heard the British army and wildlife rangers swear by it. I’ve been using the old version of this for years and its the only thing that actually works. As its a moisturiser, its a joy to cover your body in too. Only, thing, not sure if Avon is a UK thing only…? Good luck, I hope you find a way to beat the little suckers. xx

    1. Thank you Amanda, I have used it before, just didn’t realize it would help with mosquitos and know exactly what the bottle looks like. I checked and can order it through amazon. Thank you so much, it really is a pain in the rear and they looove my blood for some reason.


      1. Skin So Soft do lots of products and only one has the secret mossie-hating ingredient, make sure you get the right one. It’s all the goodness in you they are after, my lovely one. xx
