Gone Walkabout

I’ve Tested Positive For Needing a Vacation 😀

‘I’m sorry I’m not available to answer your call right now, … please leave your message at Shell beach. Western Australia.

Gone on a family walkabout in the wonderfull lands of Oz

More fun, more adventure, more laughter.

ABOUT SHELL BEACH

This aptly named beach is found on the drive into Shark Bay and you won’t find sand here – just billions of these tiny Shark Bay cockle shells reaching depths of up to 10m and stretching for more than 70km.

In the early 1900s, shells from the beach were quarried, cut into blocks and used to construct a number of buildings in nearby Denham.

When you #WanderOutYonder along the Coral Coast Highway, stop to explore Shell Beach then keep your eyes peeled for shell block buildings around town.

The Secret Door

Cosplay – Steampunk Tinkerbell ~ Howie Muzika 2014
THE SECRET DOOR
She saw a glimpse of paradise in a butterfly,
brightly coloured flowers and dragonflies.
Where flocks of birds chirrup and sing,
extra sensual pleasures, to her, they bring.  

I don’t know, who didn’t tell you this,
another legend, that history has missed. 
Although, they do say, it is utterly true,
that there is a hidden portal to go through. 

An enchanted garden, across Welsh lakes, 
where our fair folk dwell, for goodness sake.
Envision your wildest, of fantasy dreams, 
of a world, that is as magickal as it seems. 

Using your prayers with good intentions,
whisper favours on the pure will of heaven.
Find the secret door, across invisible lake,
set forwards to holy island, of spritely fae. 

Known as the Welsh kingdom of the Tylwyth Teg,
the Fair Folk. There. Now. it has been said. 
A little bit of fantasy, a little bit of fun,
A little bit of laughter, the spell is begun.

Yet, woe betide, any who bring home, a token,
or the fair family’s blessings, will be broken.

Where are the Story Tellers?

‘Some day you will be old enough to start reading faery tales again’ ~ CS Lewis

As a young girl, I used to sit on my mother’s knee, listening to my (Welsh) great grandmother sharing wonderful stories, about the folklore of my ancestral history. Sadly, those days have long gone. However, I decided to research, where those stories originated from.

It has been a wonderful adventure. And so, in honour of my Great Grandmother, I have rewritten her stories, as memoirs, to be saved for my future generations, so that our ancestral links will never be lost.

What stories were you told by your grandmother?

SEEINGS AND DOINGS

WELSH FAERIES ~ Y Tylwyth Teg. 

Known anciently  as “Y Tylwyth Teg” which literally means “the fair folk”, Welsh faeries typically live in lakes or streams and sometimes in hill hollows. There are various tales of humans being trapped in the fairy realm and the intermarriage between faeries and humankind. ~ Nia Jones. The Spooky Isles)

FUN FACT

It was said, that if your little finger was crooked on the end, it was because you were descended from fairies. 

You have the same power available to you as the fairies do.  It starts with loving the Earth through your heartfelt gratitude and appreciation, but more important, through your actions.  The fairies can help you reconnect in a more intimate way with the Earth, and all they require is your willingness to pay attention to the trees and plant life around you and demonstrate your care. ~ Stephen D Farmer Ph.d 

They’re waiting for you

Spirits of Nature:

The real reason there’s a connection between fairies and witches is simple – nature. Fairies are the spirits of nature, so naturally when witches work with nature, they are working with fairies. 

Fairy Food and Libations: 

Traditionally, fairies loved sweets so anything you’ve baked at home is a perfect fairy offering.

Other Offerings

The fairies are appreciative of shiny things. Sparkly offerings like jewellery, crystals, stones, and glass are appropriate. Fairies like Celtic flute music, tinkly wind chimes, and people who care for the earth and wildlife. So make your gardening ventures an offering to the fey.

Dip deep enough into the folk history of any European country and you will find stories about another folk who share our natural world.

Spell Craft

‘Wait, what, uh, are you telling me you can spell the time?’ 

SPELL CRAFT
She’d guaranteed me…

There was magic to be found, in this ancient art,
and that the destiny of soul’s, were ‘written’ in stars. 
How you're all blessed with different names, 
as in, our dates of birth, are never the same. 

That, it isn’t luck, good fortune or divine fate,
It’s something, you should ‘count on’ to contemplate.
To notice the repeating of numbers and patterns;
timing the synchronicity, of symbolic happenings. 

‘Words’ that can unlock doors with sacred keys,
your own secret, time machine, if you pleased.
Through the chaos, you could never have dreamed, 
that each ‘letter’ of a ‘word’ gifts, a simple theme. 

There is the potential of a ‘number’ in rule below,
a hidden code, that ‘figures’ the best path to go. 
The science of ‘Spelling’ is Pythagoras’ craft,
where divine truth is ascertained in its forecast.

Numerology is the ‘light in the dark’ of reality,
a ‘Signal’ to discover, your truth actually.  
Victoria Healing ~ 2.6.2021
Spell Craft. Go figure.

Dedication: I give great respect and gratitude to my best friend and wise teacher: Karen, whose courage and strength of purpose, led me to my own.

‘All Words are Spells’

To those who are interested in the magic of numbers. The word ‘SPELL’ adds up to “ONE” in numerology, meaning: To be the Pioneer of self. Original. Unique. Strong willed. Innovative. Having the courage and drive to go ahead into new fields of expression. ~ Numerology and the Divine Triangle ~ Faith Javane and Dusty Bunker.

Holy Ring of Light

After Glow of the Moon’s Halo

LUNA: HALO

HOLY RING OF LIGHT, YOU HAD TO BE THERE

After all of the hype, I’m sure that there is no-one on this earth who would have missed that phenomenal lunar eclipse last night. Is it  just me? but I felt that the entire cosmos was hypnotised, in the Heaven’s slip stream. 

It kind of reminded me back to 1969, when I was a young kid at school and we were all gathered on mass to watch the first moon landings. Do you remember that?

As you’ve probably gathered by now, I enjoy looking at life, from different perspectives and today is no different.  

FROM OUR BACK GARDEN

I’m one of the lucky people who live in Western Australia, from our view point; The sky was set on fire at sunset, then, our world turned black, as the moon vanished. Thankfully, we were able to tune into a live casting with the Sydney Observatory. 

RUNNING RINGS AROUND THE MOON

Just when we thought this magnificent paranormal show was over; 

Hubby shouted, ‘Come outside, you won’t believe your eyes’

I ran out to take one last look at the night sky and breathe in the awe and the beauty of the universe, where, I was bedazzled to see our sky, lit up by an extra-ordinary halo of iridescent light around our moon. 

SEE TOP IMAGE

Sighs … to me, in that moment, that WAS the pinnacle of the whole extraordinarily, super, mystical and powerful performance.

THE PROFESSIONALS

I’ll leave all of the professional photographers to work their magic moon momenta’s, as in this image captured my most favourite photographer on earth, Hirsty, who lives in Sydney Australia.

LIMITED EDITION PRINTS NOW AVAILABLE of last night’s rare Super Moon Lunar Eclipse over Sydney capturing all her beautiful phases, from a bright orange glow on the horizon through to the blood red moon during the full eclipse. To secure one of the few remaining prints please email me at info@hirsty.com.au. Cheers Hirsty

I HAVE MY OWN VISION

…I will live quietly in awe, with my own precious back garden memories.

Are You a Solar Witch?

Art: Mcptato ~ Deviant Art
Google: 
‘What is a Solar Witch?
Me: *Crowing loudly* 
Something I rise to everyday. It is the sorcery of the Sun’s Magic. 

SOLAR WITCHES:
Incorporate magick into their daily witchcraft, by ray’sing the sleeping awake, helping others, less fortunate to find their natural bliss and joy. Solar Witches consider morning Sun rise and Sunset rituals to be their cauldron of enlightenment. They usually practice their craft outdoors, naturally. 

Many enjoy sharing their sun kisses with earthlings and hope to encourage sad humans to come out of the shadows. Their wish is that others are empowered by the re-energising warm glow of the Sun. The Solar Witches spiritual coven, is nature; here, there and everywhere, that the sun shines.

The Solar Witch ~ 26.5.2021 

Not every Witch works with the Moon phases. Some Witches, just wanna have Sun. 

Are You a Solar Witch?

Many Solar Witches have Fire signs in their astrological chart: Such as Aries, Leo and Sagittarius, but this is not required to be a Solar Witch!

Favourite Colours: Yellow. Orange. Gold. Red.

‘What does the word witch mean?’ 

Me:

WORD WITCHES:

Incorporate witchcraft into their writing and consider morning writing rituals as a form of magic. They usually research their own passions and interests. The Word Witch will very often have their own writing portal in their library, to practice their craft. They don’t always just use the library though. Many enjoy watching earthlings and taking long road trips in nature, as they scribble notes to take back to their sacred hub, to conjure word spells.

Smiles

Mom and me

Happy Heavenly Mother’s day, to my beautiful Mom

It was six years ago, that I began writing these love letters to my Mom, in the blogosphere. 

‘It has taken a long time, to understand that my Mom’s love will never die.

and finally, after these all years, I can smile, instead of cry.

Victoria Healing ~ 9.5.2021

“One day you’ll realise that your Mom was the best friend, you never knew you had”

‘Mothers never really die,

they just keep the house up in the sky.

They polish the sun by day and light,

the stars that shine at night.

Keep the moonbeams silvery bright,

and in the heavenly home above,

they wait to welcome those they love.’— Helen Steiner Rice

Send in the Butterflies

Learning to Fly ~ Art by  Iluka Art & Design [-o-]

LEARNING TO FLY

A purple butterfly emerges from her cocoon. The meeting places in her wings symbolise Family, carers, health workers & Community.

Artwork done for Art for Epilepsy Auction 2018. With all proceeds going to the Australian Epilepsy Foundation. 

This is one of my memory lane moments… sighs loudly…

How beautiful and kind of  Iluka Art & Design [-o-]  to  donate this stunning Purple Butterfly to Art for Epilepsy  at an Auction in 2018. Where all proceeds went to Epilepsy Action Australia 

When I see such generosity, I often wonder, 

how much was raised and how their donation helped? 

This has reminded me of my favourite Welsh saying:

‘Anfonwch y gloynnod byw’

Send in the Butterflies

She Was a Beauty

CURRENT MOOD

so I said to myself:

SELF:

and I knew it was me, because I recognised my voice.

What an amazing Super Moon.

She was a Beauty

I was up at 4am, when she shone through my bedroom window, to wake me up.

So I sat with her.

It’s those special moments when you are wide eyed and just soaking the awe of her brilliance, which reminds me…

For the pleasures of your soles

ME: I’m in a bad mood
HIPPOCRATES: Go for a nice long walk and if you’re still in a bad mood,
go for another walk. 



FOR THE PLEASURES OF YOUR SOLES
When the world is chaotic, your mind is in a buzz,
with in an infinite overload of ‘out of the blue’ stuff.
Take your mind, heart,  soul and spirit for a walk,
listen out for the exhilarating sounds of nature’s call.

Soul of Mother Earth, to soles of your feet;
Heart to ground, centred in peace.
Heel, then toe, mindfully across terrain,
smell and touch the stability of Earth again. 

Let the grass grow under your feet,
heart lifting moments, as senses meet. 
Earth and Heart, letters are the same;
they’re just ‘sounded’ out in a different way. 
Victoria Healing ~ 27.4.2021
Heel to Toe

it all starts to make sense’ ~ ~Jennifer Bramley ~ Earth Day Tag

‘The soul of the earth, can best be felt through the soles of your feet.

When you walk arrive with every step. That is walking meditation. ~

Kinhin. Walking Meditation. 

This is the Japanese Monk from the documentary Baraka

This Monk is ringing a bell as he walks, so that it chimes at a constant interval, calling people to pay attention and join him on his spiritual journey. 

Mindful Walking Explained

Simply apply the core concept of mindfulness to the process of walking. Focus the mind on the movement of walking. This increases the mind-body connection, heightens mindfulness, and boosts our mental well-being. 

https://positivepsychology.com/mindful-walking/

“The most primitive way of healing the body is by putting bare feet on natural ground,” says US cardiologist Dr Stephen Sinatra. “I call it caveman medicine and I thoroughly recommend it.”

‘There’s a difference between knowing the path and walking the path ~ The Matrix 

Solvitur ambulando /ˈsɒlvɪtər ˌæmbjʊˈlændoʊ/[1] is a Latin phrase which means “it is solved by walking” and is used to refer to a problem which is solved by a practical experiment. It is often attributed to Saint Augustine.[2]
