My early memories nearly always contain some element of nature. Sounds, smells, the rain, the wind, the animals, trees and flowers, such magical things.
Although my school years took me away from this magical world, my dreams, dreams linked to the world of my early years, survived.
As the creative side of me surfaced, I began to write. I also discovered my love of art and for many years I worked in the world of fine art.
However, the practical and self-reliant side of me developed, it grew but did not stray far from nature. I kept chickens, I grew veg,
I milked goats, baked bread, spun wool and planted a medicinal herb garden.
My ‘homestead’ also became home for children with behaviour problems.
In quiet moments, I studied theology, esoterics and earth wisdom. I studied and practised Reiki. These quiet moments also allowed me to find stillness and it was here that I rediscovered the dreams of my early years, the dreams had survived intact.
All of these things bring me to the present time, the point where I am now. It is a very magical point in time, magical for us all. It is a time when dreams are becoming a reality and those dreams are dreams we all share.
More and more people are going back to the land; they are planting their veg, keeping their chickens. They are being self-reliant. They are turning to the earth for solutions and they are returning to the earth’s wisdom for the answers.
As nature provides, so too do we. We are relearning how to work with nature and how to help restore the balance. As we rediscover our link to nature, we are also rediscovering our link to the heavens and in doing so, we are accessing who we really are and moving into our rightful place.
