Redefining Joy with the help of Nature Consciousness

Redefining Joy with the help of Nature Consciousness

TRY THIS: Close your eyes and recall moments in your life where you were FILLED with joy, and pause yourself DEEPLY in EACH of those memories, one after another. . . ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ . . . . . closing my eyes, I see my 11-year-old hands placing old-fashioned, shiny tinsel on our Christmas tree–I am by myself as I do this. The SCENT of the tree wraps ALL around me, embracing me with it’s HEAVENLY fragrance! ONLY the tree is LIT UP: I’ve turned the lights off in the room so that I can SEE through the bay windows behind it towards the outdoor LANTERN POST. It’s just past DUSK, and SNOW is falling so heavily that the lantern’s light barely pierces through. A fat and fluffy grey KITTEN beneath the Christmas tree’s branches calls my attention back into the room and my tinsel-hanging, as it SLAPS at a well-placed bell, RINGING IT over and over. . . caught up in it’s play, OBLIVIOUS to my PRESENCE. The BRILLIANTLY COLORED lights bedecking the tree add extra SPARKLE to both the shiny bulb ornaments and this silvery metallic tinsel I am hanging on the PRICKLY TIPS of this evergreen: one. piece. at. a. time. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ NOW–go back into YOUR joyous memories and notice this: How many of your five senses were involved: TOUCH, TASTE, SCENT, SOUND, VISUAL? Your focus on each of THESE creates your JOY! IN THAT MOMENT you were only IN THAT MOMENT. Nature Beings entreat us EVERYDAY to co-CREATE joy: SCENT from sunlight-warmed, dry pine needles, dewdrops HANGING on a spiderweb, a black ant pulling along an IMPOSSIBLY huge chunk of food, delicately CURLING TENDRILS of steam rising from your morning mug, clouds SUDDENLY part and MOONLIGHT POURS DOWN over a hillside, a creek chortles merrily along. . . splashing over, around and about Her tumbled rocks with sunshine GLINTING like DIAMONDS off Her waters! TAKE TIME TODAY (everyday!) to CO-create a FIVE SENSES connection with any aspect of NATURE that calls YOU to HER! (And, know THIS: exercising your five senses routinely both creates JOY AND calls in the CURIOUSITY (I love the Olde English spelling of this delicious, important word!) of many levels of ‘INVISIBLE’ as well as VISIBLE Nature BEINGS. They will start to RECOGNIZE and WATCH you with this very same CURIOUSITY that you are emanating, thus garnering the beginnings of TRUST to build lasting RELATIONSHIPS with their KINGDOMS. ....

Getting Noticed by Nature

Getting Noticed by Nature

Starting a relationship with Her and Her creatures both visible and invisible is remarkably similar to wooing a lover: pay attention to Her every day (not just when you find the time), have that attention flow from your HEART, not your brain (pour it out as FELT EMOTION, as true appreciation and thankfulness for how She graces your life, for how Her beauty has/does nourish you–not as thoughts about what you can get/take from Her). ALL Her creatures become curious when you do this, as most humans either hurry by (whether driving, walking, running) or help themselves (yank a weed, trim a bush) all their focus in their heads, like hamsters in a wheel. STOP when you catch yourself there. POUR all your attention on an aspect of Her that makes you catch your breath!!! (and if something hasn’t, you aren’t really...

The Awakening

The Awakening

THERE IS A FERVENT NEED AWAKENING NOW IN HUMANS AROUND THE WORLD TO BE ABLE TO SEE, FEEL, HEAR, AND COMMUNICATE WITH ALL ASPECTS OF NATURE, VISIBLE AND INVISIBLE. Deliciously, Nature feels the same way about forming relationship with YOU! But where to start? Here, simplicity is KEY. What aspects of Nature in particular make YOUR heart soar? NOT someone else’s idea, not what you’ve read/heard regarding how one must go about it for it to happen, not more books/classes before you believe you are ready (although, if strongly drawn, by all means read/take them!) YOU ARE READY RIGHT NOW, and so is NATURE. So, AGAIN, what specifically in Nature makes YOU feel joyous/peaceful/blissful/sensual/at home. REMEMBER: PASSION is the language of your SOUL. . . so it is vital to pay attention and trust YOUR OWN INSTINCTS about what aspects of Nature are calling YOU to THEM. This. Is. Personal. In my next posting we’ll have more information about following the call, but for this one, please take a moment and remember WHAT CALLS YOU, and, to help everyone wake up more to that, post it below to begin building the energy on the page. . . For me, there are many aspects–but OCEAN has called me to her my entire...

Sneak Peek at “Faery-led: The Invisible Kingdoms as Evolutionary Allies” – due late Fall 2015

Sneak Peek at “Faery-led: The Invisible Kingdoms as Evolutionary Allies” – due late Fall 2015

  Creeksong is excited to announce that her new book “Faery-led: The Invisible Kingdoms as Evolutionary Allies” will be released in late Fall 2015. Here are some selected excerpts:   “Since before the white man came!” bellowed the answer, nearly knocking me over in surprise. Over the course of several days I had been instructed by a bevy of Nature Beings on the opening of a long-dry spring, from deep inside a petrified stump–it’s talon-like roots entwined amongst boulders, and the back of it buried in creek-bank. It was amazing enough to have visions given to me, visions that I had to trust over any queasiness. To lie on one’s belly on a dry, pebbled stream-bed and bury arm up to shoulder under a stump in timber rattler territory does give one pause! But now, having followed all instructions to the letter, and feeling full with the joy of assisting the sweet spring to be again flowing out from between two of the petrified stump’s stone-hard roots–the curiousity over how old this stump was, and when it had last stood as living tree with spring erupting up from beneath it, rose as a strong visual question in my mind. But certainly with no expectation that it would be answered!   One evening, only minutes into class, a HUGE White Tiger strolled regally across the room, haunches pumping. Three dimensionally visible and ‘see-through’ to only myself and the lady seated to my left, the remainder of the students could “feel” it’s presence. As the Tiger neared a woman sitting at the far right-end of the couch across from me, the Tiger Spirit spun around and sat Herself also, guardian-like, right beside the woman. Seconds later, the woman the White Tiger Spirit was guarding placed her hand on the middle of her chest, and, looking a bit fearful, announced that she was experiencing sharp physical pain in her lungs. As I asked for guidance to assist the woman, the Tiger Herself responded by standing up and unfurling Her immense body with long tail away from the couch, her rear-end going right through the face of the lady seated beside me! I could not help but to wonder if she was aware. Next, She buried Her head and open jaws right through the woman’s chest–with the woman (who had no conscious understanding of what was happening) pressing back into the couch as it happened, and the Tiger’s head and open jaws disappearing momentarily from my view. Then, the White Tiger Healing Spirit pulled out, looked over her haunches at me, and sent this telepathic thought: “Ask permission of her that I might eat her pain.” Thankfully, although I’d yet to experience the...
