I have to give you a rain check and unfortunately cancel our weekly Reiki healing for today.
As another garage sale weekend is slowly winding down and the rest of the house is in shambles, I need to dig deep and find the energy to get it in tickety boo shape for tomorrow’s updated picture shoot. Today I am asking you to send healing vibes and loads of energy my way, so I can tackle all my chores. Thank you in advance, you are most appreciated.
I leave you with a picture of one of my favorite places on earth. It’s were the water runs clear in alpine lakes and streams. Where the mountains are majestic and boulders dot the meadows. It’s where the marmots run free and soak up the sun, sprawled out on rocks. It’s heaven on earth and I hope you enjoy as I send you into a new week and wish you much Love and light .
Life and Mother Nature can be pretty amazing. Check out this beautiful occurrence and forget your troubles for a moment by filling your heart with awe and wonder.
This rare phenomenon is called “Baikal Zen.” Rocks that have fallen on the ice of Lake Baikal are heated by sunlight and emit infrared rays that melt the ice below. Once the sun is gone, the ice becomes solid again, creating a small support for the rock above.
Picture from a recent adventure. The water was calm, reflecting a red sun as the smoke was rolling over the mountains, only to cover the landscape once more. It had done so on many occasion in the later part of summer, it was almost a daily occurrence. Winds were also a key factor, sometimes driving the smoke to settle in The Valley, while lifting it out and over the mountain range on other times. Burnt smells, raining ashes, and unhealthy air qualities usually accompanied these events. In this picture you can clearly see the smoke coming in, but the air quality was still good and besides a restricted view, it was ok to be out there.
We had gotten lucky and it was clear most of the day. The thought crossed my mind that perhaps we had driven above the smoke line and it was beneath us. The entire drive up was gloomy and gray, and for a moment it appeared that we might have to cancel our outdoor adventure. Surprisingly it was clear on the top, and we got to enjoy a hike through a colorful aspen forests. A narrow trail meandered along Paiute Pass, constantly climbing in elevation. The views were breathtaking with golden glows, softly swaying in the breeze wherever the eye wandered. It was a new place to see as far as fall colors go and it didn’t disappoint. This picture was taken towards the end of the day and during nature’s last light. I hope you enjoyed it.
I am not writing much today because I find myself in catching up mode again and I want to get back to some of your comments and blogs. But I leave you with a picture from my hike this week. Ahhhh….bliss. ❤️
As another week is coming to an end and a new one is heading our way, I am reflecting on everything that has happened so far in 2020. It’s been quite some year, hasn’t it? Life seems to have changed overnight in such traumatic ways that just recently would have been hard to grasp and imagine. Earlier today I heard that this is the biggest mass awakening for humanity. No doubt, things are scary, how else would we learn and notice? But there is no denying and turning away from the good this has brought to our environment. I truly hope the ones in charge, the ones who can make a change are listening.
I’ve been out walking must every day, and I always try to see the world as if it was for the very first time. Gratefulness for yet another day, to have woken up, able to choose my attitude, and in search for what beauty I might find today, has become a priority to me. Beauty lies in the eye of the beholder and is so much more than just visual. Besides what you see, it can be a feeling, an act of kindness, gratitude, helpfulness, the act creation, a smile, and so much more. Today my inspiration was found in nature on my walk and the above picture.
