Snake Energy

SNAKE~ Awakening dormant energies and unlocking hidden knowledge, Snake brings spiritual transformation and heals through change. From “Animals Teachings,” by Dawn Brunke.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Several weeks ago…

I woke in the morning from a dream that had snakes in it. When I was going out the door that day to Water/Physical Therapy, I said out loud to the Universe, “Ok, I know I’m going to have a snake come to me with a message soon; I welcome it.” I know snake lore, medicine and magic tells us of change, shedding our skins, health and healing, transformations and earth energy. I’ve been going through a lot of physical changes for the last couple of years, so change is welcome in many areas. Just this year I’ve been working hard to heal my body and release pain.

Maybe I didn’t welcome it as well as I could have, because while sitting in my living room on the couch last week, talking on the phone, I saw something under my dining room chair. We have light oak wood floors and I thought it was a string or thread. I watched it and finally saw it move! I said out loud, “not again!” At least this time it was a tiny one, (a Ringneck Snake) but I still didn’t want it in my house! I grabbed a handicap gripper tool, that helps pick up things, and tried to get the snake with that. The snake was very small, a baby I figured, but I didn’t know what kind. (at the time) I heard on a television show that some newly hatched poisonous snakes can be more potent than adults snakes, so I wanted to be careful, plus, I didn’t want to hurt it. I didn’t get a picture of it because I was home alone and I just wanted it out of the house! Once before, I had a Black Racer Snake show up in my bedroom coming from the window sill onto my night stand. Another minute and it would have been on my bed and I was laying in it! I have no idea how it got into our house but I was so afraid I ran and shut the door! I was on the phone that time too, lol, with the same person, my husband! Luckily the snake was moving slower because we had the air conditioning on. When he got home we caught it and tossed it out the window where it quickly slithered away to its home. I didn’t sleep in our bedroom for at least a week! *smile*

I’ve had snake come to me several times in the last ten or so years and probably most of my life in one way or another.  Each time, in dreams first, then in person. I felt strongly these were always messages for me. I sought information to learn what snakes message was. Before snake, sister spider came too. I’ve had many insects and animals come to me with messages and insight on what path to take or what to pay attention to.

For now, I know I’m going through some big transformations inside and out. Perhaps I’m shedding my old skin and getting a newer, tougher one. Heaven knows, these days I need a tougher skin to deal with so much negative energy. I need to have a good shield of love, while protecting my heart, mind and spirit from all the ignorance flying around these days. So many people are not using common sense, love and common decency and I’m doing my best to refrain from falling into the pit of despair and anger while still expressing myself and sharing messages I’m being given from SpiritGod and higher wisdom through many means all around me. So yes, I welcome messages from my animal spirit helpers, guides, angels and more.

LoveNote for Sunday May 11, 2014~

I am certain, I love myself more now than I have ever before. I am comfortable with who I am as a person, inside and out. I may not be what someone else feels is right, but I am not them, I am me! I have lived through many experiences and problems, big and small and I am stronger and better for each one. I have learned many lessons and I welcome them. My body is not what it used to be, but why should it be? I am older, I am wiser, I know myself and I value everything about me. Some days are better than others, so I take a deep breath and count my blessings. I strive to help others on their journeys, when they have doubts and need to learn to love themselves.

Believe me. This was not something that came easily or fast, but as I shared in my book, “A Season of Love,” “When we experience trials, we should not look back on them or curse them, but do our best to be grateful and have joy for receiving each lesson which makes us stronger. Like a sword being created, the Master folds the heated metal, over and over again, tempering it, making it strong and worthy. We, like the sword, are put through heated times, only to make us stronger!”

Blessings and love, Fran~Mysti~May 2014

A Moment with Mysti~ April 4, 2014~Manifesting~

I am manifesting!! For a while now, I’ve been downsizing “stuff” in my home. I’ve been giving it away, recycling, throwing away and selling whatever I don’t need or is not serving a purpose. I have thoughts, ideas and dreams I am putting into motion. I am moving the energy, stirring it up, because I have a plan. The home we live in now has been wonderful, a true blessing for us, in the woods, out in the country, surrounded with trees and nature. Now, we need something different, but similar. We are changing and our needs are changing too. I have been looking online at houses and believing the right one for us will present itself when we have more of our ducks in a row. With Spring here now, my attention has turned to putting my energy into moving the energy with my actions! I’ve been cleaning and packing up items we don’t use everyday, so they are ready to unpack when we are in our new home. We’re putting the filled boxes in our storage building and making conscious choices about what to keep and what to let go of. Some days I get discouraged and overwhelmed when I think of how much will have to be done when we move, but I remind myself to stay positive, keep looking forward and to trust we will have the help we need and all that we need, when the time is right.

Get those ducks in a row, keep believing, and manifest your dreams, Mysti-Fran~

A Moment with Mysti~ March 19, 2014~Healing~

Feeling beat up, but happy! I’m happy because finally someone has determined the source of much of my physical pain. Physical therapy can be tough, but I have to keep reminding myself of the positive benefits. I feel bruised and battered, but all for the greater good. I have wanted to write many days, but I knew I needed to rest and when I could, do things at home needing to be done. With so many energy changes occurring in the last few months, my head has been swimming with ideas and inspiration, but I pace myself. Winter, where I live, has been long and harsh and just as I feel my body, mind and spirit making big changes, the weather is about to do the same too. It takes great strength to get around physically and I’m proud I’m nurturing myself and listening from within to put other things to the side and concentrate on my physical well being. I know all things are connected and as I heal I feel more balance; yet another journey on my path.

Being Home~

WinterDeerFranHafey2014

A Moment with Mysti~ January 26, 2014

I’m a home-body. I like being home. I tell myself often, that’s ok. Everyone has a purpose and not all of us were meant to travel all over the world with our messages or be in front of huge crowds. Now and then, I wonder why I am the way I am. I don’t single out my imperfections and name them. I take the whole package and know everything is connected. Through pain and joy, I’ve learned so much and I love to learn and welcome it. I also know life isn’t always smooth sailing, we will have ups and downs, but when we’re positive, help others, give unselfishly and be the light we’re here to be, we will find peace. Striving to be love is how we invite love and peace into our lives. 

Today I baked cranberry orange pecan bread while taking pictures of deer just past our backyard fence. I enjoyed spending the day with some of the guys in my life, my husband, son and grandson and of course our dogs and birds. I did some laundry, computer work and hey, the cold temperatures outside don’t bother me as long as I’m home. *smile*

Peace and love, Fran~Mysti

I’ve been blessed to have good memories of Thanksgiving with my family. We had a storybook setting out in the country, with a large table, a big turkey and all the trimmings and traditions. I learned to cook the Thanksgiving meal when I was about eleven years old by watching and helping my Mom. She’s a good cook and always told me her Mother did this or her Aunt did that, but she had her own ways of doing things. As the family grew, we stopped going to my Mom and Dad’s once they got older and some of my siblings would have them over to eat or we would get together in smaller groups, but we always go to my parents home for Christmas.

All the vegetables we ate that day came from our garden. We grew potatoes, green beans, sweet potatoes, corn and several varieties of squash. We grew much more, but those are the ones I remember eating at Thanksgiving. I remember having a turkey, but I was told sometimes in earlier years they would have a large chicken if money was tight. Most of the bread and desserts were made fresh and life seemed a little simpler then. After our meal, most of us would go outside if the weather was nice, while some had coffee, maybe some television later on, but not as much as people watch today. Mostly, the television was on in the morning to see the “Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade.” We watched the parade while cooking and preparing for the day.

I’ve seen holidays that were tighter than others, but over the years, we’ve cut back to a reasonable meal, proclaiming it’s more important to have an abundance of love, than an abundance of food! It doesn’t really matter if you have pizza, tofu, burritos or turkey sandwiches. Just being together, sharing our prosperity with others all year round, coming together on several days of the year to tell others how blessed we are, is really the best blessing of all.

Traditions are nice and having a big meal is great, but not all people have that for Thanksgiving. I hope and pray no matter what foods we have, what traditions we uphold, that what we have the most of, is love! Although compassion, understanding, forgiveness and peace are good to have too!

When we get ready to sit down and eat, if it’s two, four, six or eight people, I always take a moment to remember others, in whatever situation they may be in, that wish they were home or were warm, full, loved and not alone or in tough places right now. I ask my Creator to bring people together for the highest good and I ask that their hearts be filled with love. I also say “thank you” for everything and remember to share. No matter how much food we have, I’m going to have a moderate meal, but have a HUGE amount of LOVE to go around, and it’s not fattening at all!

I pray and believe, and wish for you the very best Thanksgiving ever, filled with all that you need and most of all, Love.~

Blessings~ Mysti~

HalloweenHauntedNice

 

I grew up in the country near a small town where we went to church, did our grocery shopping and every year we went Trick or Treating. We never bought our costumes; we merely went up to the attic and went through clothes my Mother had saved for years and years, along with a few masks, wigs and makeup. We would put our costumes together with the help of Mom, who was also a wonderful seamstress. We would go to our church Halloween parties, where they had haunted houses, goodies to eat, a contest for different ages and the adults dressed up just to be mysterious and have fun! I had my picture in the local newspaper one year for winning with my witch outfit, which was all authentic except for the mask! For Trick or Treat, we’d go to sections of town where we knew folks and many times I would hear how cute and sweet we were and oh my, how much we’d grown since they saw us last. Most were church friends and Mom felt safer driving places she knew well.

I learned a lot about values and traditions from my Mom and the energy and creativity she put into helping us figure out our costumes and put them together. I appreciated that and kept the tradition when my children were old enough for Trick or Treats, never buying costumes but finding things around the house, maybe buying a prop or something extra we needed from time to time, but mostly everything was homemade. We had fun, no matter where we lived, but for many years we would go back to my old Trick or Treating stomping grounds in the little town I grew up in. I knew everyone in town practically in the areas I went myself as a child. We would go as a family and sometimes we, the adults, dressed up too. I always loved this time of year with the fun, the mystery, the changes of the season and how it led to even more holidays!

Autumn and Halloween have always felt very magical and mysterious to me, so it’s always been my favorite time of year, even before I learned more of its significance and importance to me.

Now, I hold many of my own traditions; decorating the front door and porch and inside the house too. I don’t have any little ones, but my grown children take their children Trick or Treating now, a few are already too old and have told me they miss the fun of going out on Halloween night, Trick or Treating. There is no age limit on dressing up and going out, having fun and giving the treats to the little ones. Halloween is a night to be a kid at heart! My beliefs are mixed, keeping some from the past and learning of those I love and believe in now too. I keep what feels good and right to me and let go of the rest.

Many go to parties, but we usually stay home. I love the Halloween shows on television, like The Great Pumpkin and Hocus Pocus, then I steal away to have some alone time. I like to sit outside and feel the wind and talk to the Ancient Elders, Mother Earth, the wind, the moon and listen and watch for those that have passed on into another realm that come to visit us on All Hallow’s Eve, Samhain, Halloween. This night is the best time to reach out and connect to loved ones that have passed on and feel peace. The veil is already thin, but on this night, it’s at its thinnest. I leave an empty place setting and harvest foods at the table as a gift for those who pass through my home and continue on their way.

Since becoming older, I’ve learned much more about this night. I believe this is the end of the old year for the Celts, the New Year,  the last harvest and the beginning of winter; a tradition I believe in. Now, the days become shorter and the nights longer; symbolizing a time of darkness and rest. This is the  time of harvest blessings and letting go of the things that are not prosperous in our lives or that which is not positive. I write out a list and sit outside, speaking to the wind, lighting candles and a fire in our outdoor fireplace. I always ask the wind to leave my candles be, not to blow them out and they never do. I also have a nice heavy cauldron I use to burn my list in at the stroke of midnight. I speak to those I love that are far away, my guides and all my helpers. I’ve done this for many years. I love how things feel the next morning on November first; All Saints Day or the Day of the Dead. The energy feels fresh and clean, and I always say a prayer for those that have passed and saying thank you for yet another good Halloween-Samhain and look forward to Yule and the New Year.

Wishing you a wonderful, fun, safe Halloween-Samhain, filled with magic, mystery and blessings!! Remember to keep the home and hearth fires burning!!
