Stewardship!

Stewardship is the job of taking care of something.

When we are stewards of the land, we are taking care of what’s been given to us.

We are showing our gratitude for all of the gifts we’ve received.

The earth provides so much life energy.

Show respect and reverence through tending the land.

Water Meditation

Water is life.
It flows… freely or with structure.
It rushes loudly or trickles softly.
Filling the world with its music.
Carrying away all of our thoughts and cares.
Water cleanses.
Reminding us that nothing stays the same.
Its constant rush is grounding
There’s security in the rush of the water.

RMS after Quarantine

Today I went into my classroom to grab a few things.

It was like the twilight zone.

I felt like the kids would walk in any minute!

It felt so familiar, yet students working in the classroom is such a distant memory.

I took pictures of some unfinished artwork; that really had me feeling disappointed and sad. The students were doing so well and created so many amazing things that they just had to leave behind.

It felt like I’m living in two realities at once.

Such amazing artwork… So much to look forward to. My only hope is that the time we had together taught them how to be creative no matter how good they thought they were at “art”.

I miss my students and my classroom.

Meditative Mandalas

Mandalas are one of my all time favorite things to create.

Each mandala resonates its own energy.

When creating a mandala, I meditate with the certain energy

Putting my intentions into each piece.

Each color is chosen to be symbolic, as are the designs.

Representing the movement of energy.

Mandala means sacred circle, and represents all of life above and below.

Air Meditation

In the beginning was the word…
And the word was God…

How do we create our words, but by first taking a breath.
Filling our lungs with air, and and releasing it.

Air is constantly moving
We can not keep it
It is not mine, nor yours
Air teaches us the most important lesson
Letting go
Breathing in, I am here
Breathing out, I let go

Stone Creek

The water at Burns Valley Herbals and Retreat that flows beautifully through the woods, has been named Stone Creek, for the many stones you can find there.

Stone Creek houses many little waterfalls and surrounds a few little islands! These islands have been cleared and named as well… Solomons Stone Island, and Circle Stone Island.  Each island has been cleared so that people can camp and enjoy the water all around them.

My friend Eli ArtSparkle came to visit last weekend and I took her out to the woods and let her pick the spot we would sit for our artmaking. This specific spot is a beautiful place to sit on huge rocks that Brenda and Theo arranged.

Having Eli here really reinforced that my idea of a Plein Air workshop here at Burns Valley is something that I must plan! I can only imagine what beautiful work would be created from having many different artists here, inspired by the land.

The Magick of the Flowing Hollow

The Flowing Hollow is a beautiful magickal place at Burns Valley Herbals and Retreat.

Water flows from the spring out of the mountain, into a little creek.

Stones border the creeks edge, creating a path through this magickal water world.

There is more to the Flowing Hollow than water, there is an abundance of life from the earth, and a breeze from the wind. The stone circle brings the warmth of fire to all who gather around. There is also so much spirit, you can feel it.

I am so blessed to be able to spend time down in the Flowing Hollow and am excited to share its magick with others!

Here is a video of it in the day time,

Here is a video of it at night!

Quarantine Art Series: Sitting Stone

Every now and then it is important we go outside and sit.

To listen to the wind blow around us, and feel the earth beneath our feet.

Sitting stone is just the place to do that at Burns Valley Herbals and Retreat.

I enjoyed sitting at the bench and painting the mountains!

I am looking forward to when others can enjoy this beautiful space with us!

I feel like the summer solstice will be the perfect time!

FPV Drone Experience

Learning to fly a first person view drone is not easy!

There are so many things to learn!

How to use the controls for starters. It’s not like your typical video game controller. It’s way more involved. I got the basics like how to go up and down, and how to turn.

The next thing to consider is that you are wearing goggles and viewing the drone as the drone to fly it! It’s a lot different to fly a small toy drone that you watch, then flying the drone in the air from a seated position using goggles!

Using goggles made me dizzy at first, but the more you do it the more your body adjusts. Kind of like when you play a first person view video game for the first time.

It also was a bit scary to be so high in the air… would the drone fly away in the wind? Would I hit a bird or a tree?? Would it drop out of the sky and get lost?!

But I just pushed past the fear, and tried it! Check out my first video.

Quarantine Art Series: Deer Medicine

The universe speaks and gifts us in many different ways, we have to be open to receiving.

Finding a deer skull was a perfect synchronicity for the energy of the current time.

This entire experience is teaching us on so many levels. One thing I’ve noticed we are all learning, is how to have compassion for those that might offend us. Deer medicine helps us to remember to have grace through all of life’s challenges. One way to do that is to develop the ability to adapt quickly to any situation, towards love and compassion.

We have had to adjust a lot in a short amount of time. Our world has flipped into a state that none of us ever believed could or would happen. When we are grounded and centered, we can hear our intuition reminding us to be gentle with ourselves and each other.

Deer medicine helps us walk the path of love with full consciousness and awareness, to know that love sometimes requires caring and protection, not only in how we love others, but also in how we love ourselves.

Let’s remember to be gentle, to touch the hearts and minds of wounded beings who are in our lives. Don’t push people to change, rather gently nudge them in right direction, as a doe nudges her fawn.

Love and accept people as they are.
The balance of true power lays in love and compassion.
