Nature is the Dreamscape

It was a flurry of a snowstorm.

Most people wouldn’t go out in that kind of weather, but I enjoy extremes, they always bring me insights.

I walked through the snow, creating fresh tracks. The satisfaction of being the first to walk the path, to create the trail. The wind was blowing the white specks of mother natures frozen perspiration- one by one they would land on my cheek and instantly melt and flow down my face.

Everything was white, except my cheeks which were rosy from the cold- and my 1980’s neon coloured ski jacket that had been handed down from my mom.

The trail, the trees, the sky, the fields, all matte in white. The birch trees looked so magical with their white bark and the white snow layered on top. It was all so dreamy.

In shamanism, we travel to the upper, lower and the parallel middle world. Everything is different there except one thing. Nature is the constant. No matter what world I have travelled to, nature is always there. For the first recognizable time, I saw the dream within the dream. I felt myself in my journey. Powerful.

I am the dreamer and I am the dream. I am the dreamer that dreamed the dream.

Nature gives us the unique ability to access differently levels of consciousness in this dimension. The dreamscape is accessible through nature. I believe that is why human beings love being in nature, it reawakens that magic within us, the mysterious is alive in nature. Even if we live in big cities and forget about the sacredness of nature or don’t have a strong relationship developed with nature, we still feel it when we go into a forest, walk along the ocean or dive into a lake.

The other world is right there, waiting for us to awaken to it.

The next time you have the chance to walk in nature, put your phone away. Embrace the silence and see the wonder unfolding before you. Maybe, just maybe she will open herself to you and you will see into the other world, into the dream that you are dreaming.

Maybe just maybe, you will see the magic that is right there with you.

Adrenal Fatigue- The Illness of the Modern Age

After years of pushing myself, I finally got the message my body was telling me. Enough is enough. Balance is key.

Well.. after striving and pushing for most of my life, my body finally had enough.  The last two years of working in the film industry pushed my adrenals past their reserves. Lack of sleep, long hours and extended periods of stress have had their impact on my body.

Yoga and meditation helped to keep me afloat, but after a certain amount of time the weight of stress was too much and my body needed to get the message to my mind, to stop what was killing me.

I didn’t want to change my life, I didn’t want to change my way of living.  But the body knows otherwise. Humans are not meant to be operating at such a high level of intensity for a long duration of time. The flight and fight response is meant to only last minutes, not days, or weeks, or in many peoples cases, years.

So here I am now, in a sense of awe.. That my body is forcing me into hibernation.

It doesn’t care that my mind doesn’t want to stop, it doesn’t care that I had plans. It only cares about survival and its health. It wants me to live in balance and its forcing me to do so.

I don’t know how the future will be, but what I do know is that I will change. I will change in how I use my energy. I will change in how I work and I will change in the person I become. This has long term consequences and will take 1-2 years to recover.

I knew throughout the whole experience that this was happening, but I kept going forward chasing after money, consciously running myself into the ground.

Our society as a whole, is running towards this illness. Our gas tanks operate on coffee and sugar. Every morning it shocks me how many people are in line at coffee shops, and how many coffee shops are on each block. It is the drug of the modern age and most of us are sleep deprived.

When we are stressed we eat poorly, make bad decisions and smile less. I see these hurried people, miserable faces all over the place. Their bodies screaming “listen to me!!” But they don’t, just like I didn’t and then illness sets in to wake them up.

Wake up before you have no choice. I had my warning. Im changing my life. Because the other option isn’t a choice.

If you have these symptoms you are probably moving towards Adrenal or Chronic Fatigue, talk to a nutritionist/ naturopath sooner rather than later.

  • Still very tired when you get up in the morning, even if y0u had 8-10 hours of sleep
  • groggy and tired at 3-4pm
  • easily overwhelmed and stressed
  • digestion is off
  • as a woman your cycle could be off
  • low mood
  • irritable, easily angered
  • have no reserves, once you are tired there is nothing left.
  • wired, but tired
  • foggy, memory problems
  • need sugar or caffeine to keep going
  • candida overgrowth

Why I went Vegan- The most impactful way to help the Environment

Check out this article to REALLY know how you can create a positive impact with the environment. If you really want to make a difference, heres how !

 

I have been a vegetarian for over 5 years. People would ask me why I was images1a vegetarian and I had may responses. I would answer:

“Because I don’t feel right eating animals if I didn’t have the heart to kill them.. So why be okay with someone else doing the dirty work?”

” Because I don’t believe in violence in any form, it says “thou shalt not kill” in the Bible, animal lives are not exempt.”

” Because it lowers my frequency, I feel lower emotions like anger, jealously and have more destructive thoughts. It creates more restlessness in my life because when they kill the animals there is cortisol and hormones of fear released and then we consume that and it enters our bodies.”

All of these were good responses, but they weren’t GREAT… I knew it didn’t feel right, but I didn’t have a really convincing argument.

hqdefaultBut then..  I watched Cowspiracy and it all made sense. I have my GREAT reason. As an avid environmentalist, a human and animal rights activist but more so as a Guardian of Gaia I cannot eat meat and say I am an environmentalist. Our planet is facing a strain from the amount of pressure we are putting on it to extract resources in every space and form. As humans we have multiplied to over 7 Billion people and what we eat affects this planet more than we ever thought possible.

Cowspiracy, clearly explains that if the human population goes Vegan- sustaining from meat and dairy we can feed everyone, NO ONE would have to starve anymore.  Eating meat/ dairy is not sustainable for the worlds population and we cannot continue to ignore that our habits of eating must change.

Another benefit of going veggie for our planet is – we would be able to not only save the Amazon rainforest, but be able to start replanting so that it can grow back  (The Amazon is our planets lungs, more oxygen comes from that forest than the whole planet and an acre is destroyed every minute to plant soybeans to feed cows that we then eat as hamburgers, also land is changed for cow grazing land).  The environment would be impacted in a positive way and our global emissions of green houses would go down dramatically reversing climate change. eaf2bc15504779ccc85d1e339390ea69

The meat industry and the pharmaceutical companies do not want the citizens of the world to know that by going vegan, if only part of the time we can greatly help our planet. They have kept this a secret to keep their profits going. And it makes me think… Maybe the cows and pigs aren’t the only ones being farmed.. Could we be apart of some greater farm. Where we are the ones being milked for our money, at the expense of our planet, of our future.

We only have one planet and as conscious beings it is our responsibility to protect what we have been given. Watch the film and make your own decision.

Celestial Faerie

Celestial Faerie

I dance in unison with the stars and trees.
I am the soul that connects with the beauty of the raw authenticity of Shakti.

I am the Great Goddess herself but I play with metaphors and disguises
showing you only side I know you will not compromise.

I am playful and mischievous
I bring out your explorative nature and together we co-create an adventure.

I can never be tied, for I have wings and with them I must fly.
The only support I need is Mother Earth, and she is always right beneath me.
