I am taking down the Halloween/Samhain decorations, enjoying being outside.  The night before, the weather was beautiful for lighting a candle, some incense, listening to the wind whisper through the trees while pulling faery/fairy cards for the coming year. I asked out loud, which cards should I use and I heard, “Faery.” When I do readings, I have options of faery, angels, Celtic tree cards or a few others I like and have used for a long time.

Sitting out on our new porch drinking coffee, a large crow decided to sit on a branch close by and go on and on about something. I asked him if he had something to say to me or a message. I decided to look up his medicine lore and even while sitting here doing that, he came back several times and seemed to be screaming at me to listen to him! I tried to get a picture of him, but each time he would fly away. Hmmm. I am now very curious of his message. I have heard that many believe Crow is an omen of death or ill health. I tend to believe that old folklore seemed to always think black animals were bad, negative or signified death or illness. For me, I do not believe that “black” means that at all, no more than white or any other color. I do think black depicts darkness which stirs mystery, the unknown, things not seen and so on, so perhaps that’s why people generalize black animals, clothing, etc as “of the darkness” and not good or evil.

I believe Crow is the bringer of magic and curiosity, since they themselves are very curious. They steal items they like and build a home with them or stash them where they go often. For Crow to show up for me today makes sense, because I am working to reinvent myself a bit and do more magical things in my life. My body; my health, has kept me from too many things I love to do. I did not even come outside last year into nature, under the trees and do my Celtic New Year ending intentions; burning my list and asking for guidance. This is something I have done for a long time and to feel physically too ill to do it, made me sad. Perhaps Crow is telling me it is time. Time to get back to the old ways I love so much and practice them more in my daily life. I have felt the lack of balance in my life for some time and I have let it bother me too much. I am the only one that can make the decision to change my life and not allow what has been getting in my way, causing me to not live the life I want and need. For me, last night and today are very important, marking a new beginning, one I desire greatly. Just now, as I write this, a big wind came and it’s blowing leaves everywhere! That’s a great sign for me to listen and follow the winds of change! I have even been emotional lately, when I think of the seasons of our lives and when I look out at the lovely trees all around where I live. I thrive on nature and wildlife. I can feel the changes occurring in me, all stirred up and wanting to come busting out. I will not tell you all the things happening in my life now or recently that keep me from doing what I want to do, but as I tell others, they are not excuses they just are the way it is for now, and life is something we work through, not around. We must have patience with ourselves, loving ourselves when we need love, especially when we feel others do not understand or when everyone is working on themselves and their own path, we just have to do the best we can and keep moving forward.

For me, I am committing to doing more of what I love and enjoy. Doing what helps me heal and makes me feel good. I am making more jewelry for my online stores, writing more, spending more time at home and I note that our home is being remodeled so that is something that makes me happier. I do not hold in my feelings, at my age, but I do my best to be kind and loving. I try not to use the excuse of physical pain and I pray and ask for guidance on what to do next to help my healing come sooner than later, due to a huge amount of pain. I have not yet met or found the doctors or the treatment that is right for me, so I am looking forward to this all happening, soon. Crow just might be telling me to hang in there, keep faith and keep believing, it is all being worked on, even when I cannot always see it and when I have days when I just want to stay in bed; I have things to do!

Here is the part of Crow’s Medicine I found to resonate most with me:

(You can read more at the link I shared at the bottom of the page.)

Crow is also the guardian of ceremonial magic and healing. In any healing circle, Crow is present. Crow guides the magic of healing and the change in consciousness that will bring about a new reality and dispel “dis-ease” or illness. You can rest assure when ever crows are around, magic is near by and you are about to experience a change in consciousness. Crow can give you the courage to enter the darkness of the void, which is the home of all that is not yet in form.
If you have a crow as a totem, you need to be willing to walk your talk and speak your truth. You must put aside your fear of being a voice in the wilderness and “caw” the shots as you see them. Crow is an omen of change. If he keeps appearing to you he may be telling you that you have a powerful voice when addressing issues that you do not quite understand or feel that they are out of balance.
Crows are the bringer of messages from the spirit world, and is thought to dwell beyond the realm of time and space.
When you meet crow, he could be telling you that there will be changes in your life and that possibly you should step by the usual way you view reality and look into the inner realms …walk your talk… be prepared to let go of your old thinking and embrace a new way of viewing yourself and the world.

Sending and wishing you many blessings, love, joy and light!

Remember The Trees~



I was a good thought, planted with love and nurtured, many years ago. I have grown and seen many things in my lifetime; the sunshine, the rain, families come and go, the changing of history. I have seen many storms, but have also heard birds sing. I have seen war and peace, love and hate. I remember when the skies were clearer with less noise. I could see the mountains and smell water. I continued to grow, learn and love, think and share. I have a purpose. I am not sure how long I have lived, perhaps hundreds of years. I have been home to wildlife and shade for others. I can no longer smell fresh air, see the mountains and there is so much noise all around me. No one stops to just sit by me and talk anymore. I continue to do what I came here to do and do it with love and a watchful eye. I have so many stories to tell. I am a beautiful old wise oak tree and today, I died. I was cut down to build a house in my place, or yet another road or city, instead of being left to continue my life, sharing clean air, shade, beauty and loving energy. My roots went deep and my branches reached out to the sun; a child of Mother Earth. Even trees can die naturally once they have lived a good long, happy life filled with memories. I had a purpose and each seedling after me will have a purpose too. Please remember the trees and let them live. Thank you.

Oh my gosh, I can hardly believe I haven’t posted here but twice this year! Well, my dear ones, 2015 has been an interesting year and with just two and a half months to go! It’s already October!

This year has been a full year of growth, realizations, changes, health challenges, tossing out and simplifying life, and so much more in between. I’m not sure where to begin, but after the death of my Dad last year, life certainly changed for everyone in my family. I’m one of five children and our Mom needed us all more than ever at this time. She’s a strong woman, but each birthday, holiday and conversation was filled with memories and I felt life was moving so fast all around me, I needed some time to “grieve” in my own way. I use the term “grieve” carefully because while I miss my Dad, learning has been elevated to a different level since his passing, in so many ways. Life has changed, I have changed and I feel blessed.

My health has been a pain, literally, for me for a long time. The last few years I’ve slowly lost some of my mobility and gained a lot of pain all over, just about every inch of my body. Being able to get up, get dressed, possibly go to pool therapy or to spend time with family or even shop for groceries, has been a challenge and since my husband also has health issues that keep him busy, life some days can be frustrating and definitely keep me taking deep breaths and asking for help from my Higher Power. I find myself talking to my Dad and my “helpers,” which include angels, faeries, spirit guides, my dogs and more. I don’t have a lot of close friends that live close by or even those I can call when I just need to vent or share. Mostly it’s because I’m an introvert, wanting to write, do my own thing, be alone or rest and heal some days. I’m grateful I’m able to have a life and lifestyle to work from home and not have to drive to a job away from home every day. There are also times when I can stand up in a crowd, speak, teach and help others, being quite the people person. I guess that keeps things interesting, but sometimes it is a challenge to push myself! 2015 has been a year of reflection, learning to keep my cool, listening more than speaking, doing my best to be kind to myself and simplifying my life even more. With so many changes and challenges, I feel my body, mind, soul and spirit have all been unbalanced. I have been working and resting to bring them all back together. I can barely walk, but I keep on doing it through the pain. I wonder some nights, how I make it through the days, but I just do. I have so much pain I barely noticed my stomach and guts were not feeling right, but I figured it was from stress, fatigue, Tylenol or similar pain medicine or food I just couldn’t tolerate anymore. Finally I ended up at the Emergency Room and was told I had Diverticulitis. I was hospitalized, but not before I tried to deal with it at home for a few weeks or more. I couldn’t keep anything in my body, I lost twelve pounds in a few days and ended up not eating anymore. I became very dehydrated and ill. I am happy to say I’m finally feeling better. I have not gained the weight back and I do believe everything happens for a reason. My body seems to be finding more balance and “being empty” for a while has reset my system. I snicker at what I tell people, part of a joke I heard somewhere years ago, about how the brain thinks it controls the body and the heart thinks it controls the body, but in actuality, it is the digestive system or the “ass” that controls everything! LOL. Think about it, if our guts are out of whack, the rest of our body becomes sick and in the “end” (no pun intended) our butthole controls us, lol. Make sense? If things stop at that end, everything can become sick and unbalanced!

Oh yes, I did say simplify and my goodness, has that been interesting. We’ve had some great guys working on our house with what started out as tearing down and replacing our front porch/deck and windows in the front of the house which turned into making the upper deck into an enclosed screened porch, new lower deck with a ramp, new front windows and double french doors leading into the enclosed porch, a new front door, new closet, tearing down a wall and letting more light into our home! I am so happy how much better the energy is flowing! Much better Feng Shui! This started in July and it is still not finished, but with it turning into a much bigger job, we’ve been patient and we highly recommend, “Smith Construction,” for anyone in our area if they need home repairs or additions done in their home. Next, they are updating and repairing our sun room before winter and before adding an addition to our home… so they may be busy for a while, then you can have them! *Smile* We are very happy with their work and how much love they put into everything they do! It truly shows!

We also had a new heating and cooling system installed in our house! We have lived here fifteen years and only used the air conditioning, but used a wood stove to heat each winter. Finally, we have a choice! It will be nice to use central heat but also use the wood stove, which I love so much and appreciate when the electricity goes out. To me, there is nothing quite like the beauty of a fire and the warmth on a cold winters night!

With the title of this blog post being, “Change, Challenges and Simplicity,” I have told you some of the changes, the challenges and the simplicity part is the inner peace through all situations and how much I’ve grown through it all! I feel blessed and I am grateful as I look back on the lessons learned and for what’s to come. I know I can make it through anything that comes my way, because I am never alone, I trust and I draw strength from my Higher Power and the Universe!

~Happy Autumn everyone~

Love, light, peace and joy, Mysti~

January’s Mini Sabbatical


Okay, so I know I missed posting anything for the holidays or in January, but I can remember sitting here and telling myself I just needed to do nothing or as little as possible. For me, when I say that, usually what happens is all sorts of things start popping up to be done, but this time, thank heavens, life slowed down. I really needed that, especially since the few months before, I got hit pretty hard with all sorts of things that kept me busy, and they were not of my choosing! Oh you know, like a tooth acting up, an old crown actually, that decided it was time to come off and need more work than before. Doctors appointments and unexpected things that come up we have to take care of. Once the holidays were over, I decided to take things much slower; my choice.

I feel taking a mini sabbatical has been good. I’ve been able to stay up late, sleep later, go through “stuff” at home and organize. We’ve had people come in and do some small home repairs, which always feels good, and getting rid of old mail, clutter, reviving the energy throughout our home! I still have days when I don’t do much, sitting and just resting, due to Fibromyalgia, Arthritis and other overlapping health issues. Regardless, I always try to do something, even if it’s getting dressed, washing a load of clothes and feeding the dogs! I don’t really like how everything on television and online in January is about losing weight, getting healthier, exercise equipment, blah, blah, blah, so I ignore it usually, but, it does remind me, just as I change the calendar, to make changes I may have gotten sluggish about during Fall and the Holidays. Winter is thickly upon us in Virginia in January and February which has slowed me down even more this year with my left knee, ankle, shoulder and neck giving me so much pain and stiffness. My doctors are not in agreement with what to do about my knees, so I am doing the best I can, meditating and doing what I can to heal, my own way!

Here it is February already and with snow, comes my Birthday. I had a nice Birthday weekend, because my day landed on Friday the 13th! I’m not superstitious, so it’s all good. My husband, son and a friend of his cooked for me and we enjoyed good food, good wine, good conversation and laughed a lot! It was a nice Birthday and I feel very blessed. I usually don’t even leave home anymore to celebrate due to Valentine’s day or icy, snowy weather. I was happy I ventured out on a sub-zero temperature night to be with family and friends. I noticed the stars shining so bright when we walked out to leave and saw several constellations vividly. The thought that went through my mind was, “My blessings are equal to the stars in the sky tonight!”

Thank you for being here with me. I look forward to your comments and meeting you. May this year be filled with even more positive energy, blessings, love and light.

Love, peace and joy, Mysti-Fran~

*The Story of why I sign Mysti-Fran or Fran-Mysti or sometimes Mystiblu:* I’ve been on the internet for a long time. Back then, people were urged to use an “alias” so people wouldn’t know who they were. I chose the name, “Mistyblue,” for the love of my Samoyed dog that looked like a white wolf! As I learned and found my path, I was Spiritually advised to change my name online and in my ventures to “Mystiblu,” which has even more meaning for me, my work and path.

December 21-28~ Winter Solstice &  The New Year~

I can hardly believe it’s already December, (and this post took me seven days to write) much less Winter Solstice! Christmas is in a few days and although most of the important things are finished, I can feel myself wanting more sleep and time alone to think and just be myself.

I did not write here in August or November, and I beat myself up a little, telling myself I should have made time. Honestly, the last few months, I have had to pick and choose what’s more important; my health, pleasing others, spending time online, or being with my family and getting quality rest! My health has been a constant issue in 2014.

My health has actually kept me from doing so many things during the year that would have been fun, interesting, exciting and educational. I have been working very hard to get healthier; going to physical therapy, water therapy, being diligent and on time to many doctor’s appointments, handling the health things that have popped up and demanded my attention even when I thought I couldn’t do anymore, walk another step, see another doctor; I persevered. We are much stronger than we think we are!

When I hear people saying they hope 2015 will be better than 2014, I think to myself, how can I create a better year than the last? When I have quiet time, I think a lot. I have a gift, or perhaps some would call it a curse. I see visions in my head when I think or remember. In color pictures, vivid, and sometimes like seeing a movie. I also have visions of things to come, I call them glimpses, and hints of things I need to pay attention to. With so much happening around me and inside of me, I have missed some things, but happily, I’m often given another chance!

One thing I could not have had another chance at, was the passing of my Dad this year, in August. I knew in my heart it would be soon, but I did not know how soon or how fast this would happen. I feel very blessed to have had time to make my peace with him years ago and let go of past hurts and issues. He made a point to say, I’m sorry, some of what you’re going through is my fault and I love you. I was able to say I love you easier, as he got older, whether he said it back or not, it did not matter, because I knew he loved me. Sometimes we think “words” will make us feel better, but they are not always necessary when others are not good at sharing them or when feelings are shared instead of spoken. I am so grateful I was with him when he took his last breath on this earth. He was not able to speak; he wouldn’t have needed to because we all felt so much love and I know he felt it too.

What is really important to you? Have you learned to let go of things that don’t matter or things you can do without or that really are not important anymore? Have you forgiven others and forgiven yourself? As I’ve gotten older, I can see things in my life that no one else really cared about but me, and that I really can do things differently and simplify. There is a time to do more because we want to help others and go that extra mile. Then there are times to allow others to do things; maybe things we used to do and we can now pass the torch or delegate to let someone else learn, so we can do less. I have learned so much in 2014, so many lessons, and I made a giant leap of growth and listening to my inner self rather than everyone else. The world needs more compassion, love, understanding, caring, peace, kindness and light. Be the light to someone when they need it, but learn to do what feels good to your soul and what you know is right. Pay attention to your gut/inner feelings and go with them. Don’t be in a hurry, be still and allow information to come to you instead of jumping too fast and making a mistake. The world is in a hurry. Everyone wants to move fast and get things done, but it can be done with peace and wisdom and not in a hurried rush, causing anxiety and stress. Take time to let life flow like a river and find peace and beauty in everything.

Yes, this has been a very full year. I’ve learned more than I ever could have imagined. I’ve dealt with pain in my body and in my heart, but I never gave up; I kept moving forward. I’ve learned even more about being kind and knowing when to be tough, with love, and to allow doors to open and close and not get upset because I didn’t jump when others thought I should. I am closer to my soul than ever before, as in, knowing even more who I am and what I’m here to do. I may not get things done in everyone else’s timing, but that’s ok, I’m still getting things done and that’s what truly matters.

I wish you peace, prosperity and love for the New Year! Be true to your own heart and create lots of wonderful moments in 2015!!

Peace, joy and light, Fran Mystiblu Hafey~

Autumn Nostalgia


Autumn is very magical to me. I love the frosty mornings and the mystical nights. I love all the seasons, but Autumn is my favorite. The trees turn beautiful colors and their leaves fall gently to the ground making a crunchy carpet. Everywhere I look I see changes. The air is cooler and similar to every autumn I have experienced. The wind and rain come, causing the leaves to fall faster and do all sorts of dances and magical swirls. I love how the wind makes the tops of the trees sway back and forth, like a dance, lulling them to sleep. I sweep and rake leaves from the porch, cut back the roses, collect seeds and bring plants in that spend all summer out in the warmth and come in to keep from freezing in the winter. I watch for signs and pay attention to the forecasts for frost and low temperatures. I find myself rummaging for warmer clothes and boots instead of sandals. My gardens are finished producing and I feel so blessed for all they gave for us to eat and enjoy. I seek ways to keep the dogs out of them so the soil can rest all winter long; composting for the next growing season. I dry some of the herbs and others will continue to grow indoors for me and my family to enjoy. I decorate the front porch with some of my favorites; a scarecrow, jack-o-lanterns and brooms, welcoming guest for the harvest. There are few things I enjoy more than sitting out on the front porch swing, listening to the birds, the wind and feeling the wonderful energy of autumn.

Tonight is Halloween night, or Samhain, as some call it. Samhain is a Gaelic or Celtic festival marking the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter or the “darker half” of the year; the time when Mother Earth sleeps and rests. The days are shorter and darker, ending the growing season, bringing in the time of harvest and then winter. November first is the Western Christian holiday of All Saint’s Day, also called All Hallows or Hallowmas, followed by All Souls’ Day on November second. Both days are considered Holy and are observed all over the world in different ways. Within the days of Halloween and All Soul’s day, I will sit outside, light a candle and burn my yearly “negatives” list. It’s a list of things I am letting go of and changing in positive ways. When I burn the list, I ask the wind to carry the ashes and energy up and out to the Universe. I believe and affirm in new beginnings and let go of what I don’t want and don’t need in my life. I know the veil is thin at this time and it is a good time to speak to those who have passed on to the other side and feel peace. Often, this is a time I will receive messages and “glimpses” of things to come, ideas, inspiration and perhaps even a message from an old soul connection, the angels or spirit. I am open to messages and dreams at this time even more than usual because the energy is so wonderful!

I hope you’re enjoying the season of Autumn and are spending time outside with nature. I’m sending good wishes for a wonderful Halloween, Samhain and All Saints day! Remember to take some time to set a place at the table or light a candle in honor of loved ones passed and wish them well.

Blessings and light,

“Dad’s Last Sunset,” by Fran Mysti Hafey-Copyright2014

By Fran Hafey

I learned some time ago to pay attention to my dreams, especially the ones that stood out or seemed to have a message for me. These are usually dreams I could remember easily or played out more than once. Each one has taught me valuable lessons.

Three months ago I had a powerful dream about snakes. I’ve had snake dreams before and I knew snake medicine can and usually does foretell of big change.

Some dreams are like puzzles, needing to have the pieces or information put together as we remember them or as other signs and pieces come to us, either in more dreams or in messages when we’re awake.

Snake not only came to me in my dreams, but I also received a visit from one in my physical home. I shared this in my June blog entry here called, “Snake Energy.”  (I quote: 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.)

Snake told me to expect very big changes in my life, ones that would cause huge ripples of changes in my own life and others around me. I thought it may have meant about my health or my husband’s health, or both. I didn’t know then, just how big the changes would be and that they had already begun. So many things are stirring and happening in our lives, behind the scenes, even before we’re aware of them.  I think my snake visitor was also trying to tell me just how fast things would happen because he came so soon after my dream. How I reacted to the snake being in my house and that I was alone when he came, are also clues to how life would unfold for me in my near future.

Just two months later and being very mindful of life events occurring around me, my family and I became very concerned about my Earthly Father, my Dad. He became weaker, losing a lot of weight and forgetting people in our family; faces and names. He began asking about loved ones that had already passed on and his energy shifted, being in two realities or realms, at the same time. Sometimes he was with us and other times he was with those on the other side. In May, we had a family gathering, in his honor, to basically say good-bye to the man we once knew. My Mom knew he was fading, maybe she already knew he was dying; she just didn’t know he would be leaving us in this reality so soon.

Dad was admitted into the hospital August twentieth with complications from illnesses he’d had for years, plus pneumonia and a severe bladder infection. The doctors ran tests and more tests and found he had cancer throughout his whole body and bones. Within just a few days Dad was brought home, where he wanted to be. We weren’t sure how long he had, but I suppose he decided he had had enough pain in that body of his and he shifted once more to crossover sooner. Hospice told us they felt he had days to hours. This news certainly got our attention fast, and it brought our world’s all a bit closer and into perspective for the sake of our Dad, who was leaving this world soon and bringing into focus how much our Mom needed all of us to help in this process of letting go of the physical, with love.

My Dad is dying. He is in his home, surrounded by those he loves and all who love him. We share good memories, strive to keep him comfortable, as we all say our good-byes. It won’t be long; his journey is almost done here, as we begin our new one.

As I finish writing, I have been called to my childhood home to be with my immediate family. When I arrived, everyone was busy with something, but someone was always with my Dad. He was not moving anymore, struggling to breathe as his body was letting go. We all gathered around him, showing our love for him and each other. We touched, we cried, we smiled and laughed. The love there in our home was  and is, incredible. It was this love that helped my Dad leave this life so peacefully and gently. As he took his last breath, we all were touching him and each other; My Mom never taking her eyes off of him. It was one of the most beautiful experiences I’ve ever had; the most loving moment of my life. We comforted each other, crying but feeling so blessed. We stayed there a long time, together, one in love and now helping our Mother whose husband of sixty six years, sixty seven in less than a month, was now gone from his body, but his spirit never dying, but living within all of us forever.

While we stood holding hands and touching Dad, suddenly the electricity flickered and went out! It was afternoon so we still had light. When the Hospice person arrived, she saw we had no electricity. We told her what happened and she explained how she had seen something like this before and it’s because of his energy and our own, connecting and creating a surge as we all touched Dad and each other to complete the circle of love at his time of passing.

More family members came to say good-bye and comfort my Mom. Some of my family urged my Mom to go to another room as they took my Dad out of the house, for one last time. I stayed for a while, but then something outside caught my eye; the beautiful sunset. My Dad’s last sunset on his family homestead on the hill in Virginia. I started taking pictures; I felt compelled to as I said out loud, “Dad’s last sunset,” and I smiled and felt peace all around me.

I know this was not a good day for my Mom or my family, and my Mom would need our love and help more than ever to get through this. She has strength from God, her family and friends, her church and she talks to Dad a lot and feels comfort in it. In time, I do feel she will realize how beautiful  Dad’s passing was and she will know it was such a blessing, one that many are not given.

A long time ago I worked in a hospital helping babies come into this world. I took their pictures and saw the smiles and love of parents and family. I’ve worked in nursing homes and birthing rooms. I’ve seen birth and I’ve seen death. My Dad’s funeral was my first, and it was beautiful. A true “Celebration of Life.” He is missed, but we all smile and remember his words he uttered to us many times in his gruff voice; rough and tough, but with love, he would say as we would part, “Drive fast kid,” which was his great sense of humor and his way of saying, “I love you.” Now he flies fast with the angels.~
