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~

Autumn02

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,

Mystiblu~Fran

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.

Blessings and love, Fran~Mysti~June 2014

Autumn Abundance

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s Autumn once again, the leaves have begun to fall and the nights are cooler. I love this time of year! Summer was so hot and humid and now its nice to sleep with the windows open listening to the crickets. Gardens didn’t do well in many areas this year. Now that its cooler, we’ve had more tomatoes come in and we’ve been canning them, but I’ve been a little upset that there were no squash to speak of. I love all kinds of squash cooked in a variety of ways. Hopefully next year the weather will be better for gardening and much more abundant. My herbs in pots and my container vegetable garden did well and I hope I can bring it indoors soon as the weather continues to get cooler.

For me, this time of year is filled with magic and mystery. I’m in awe of nature and how the seasons change like clockwork, as if they’ve been given a que from Mother Earth that its time for things to slow down, begin preparing for a long winter nap and a time for reflection.

I’ve felt a little guilty lately for not writing more here in my blog, but I’ve had lots of ideas and  inspiration come to me, so I make notes and begin, then I find myself getting busy doing half a dozen other things too. That’s not too unusual for me, but I’m working on scheduling time to write each week because writing makes me happy and I feel when we’ve been given a gift we should use it for good and not waste it. Of course, life happens and we have other things to tend to now and then.

Because of my love for Autumn, my Mom used to say, “how can you love this time of year when everything is dying?” My reply was and still is, “It’s not dying, everything is just going deep within for a long rest. It will all come back again in Spring!” It would do us well to live our lives like the seasons, nature has much to teach us.

I see Autumn as a time to prepare, to slow down, enjoy life, getting back to our roots and to basics. I like old fashion things and I enjoy “storing away” for my family and the feeling of gathering, harvesting and being grateful for all we have. The squirrels should be happy because I hear acorns hitting our roof day and night, so there’s an abundance for them, but perhaps that also means a bit of a longer winter due to the amount. I’ve also noticed so many spiders this year, they seem to be everywhere. I’ve talked to them and asked why they’re trying to take over our house, some moved on, but what I received intuitively was that they’re spinning their webs, bringing much together and they too, like many, are gathering and taking care. The days get shorter and the nights longer, making every thing more balanced since the days and nights are equal. Sitting by the fire or lighting a candle and going within ourselves when things are balanced and calm, is a good thing at this time of year. I truly enjoy sitting outside with the wind blowing the leaves all around, closing my eyes and feeling peace.

Let’s light a fire, grab a log or chair and sit around and enjoy the wonderful energy in the air and good company. The Full Harvest Moon is one of the strongest we’ll have and it’s a good time for clearing, cleansing and de-cluttering our lives, letting go of what’s not working so well. This may mean letting go of acquaintances, old habits, old ways of life and whatever you feel has been extra baggage for you to carry. I notice so many changes during this time of the year, from now until Samhain and All Saints Day. I feel it in the air and notice it within people’s lives.

This is a wonderful time, with Autumn Equinox, the Full Moon and wonderful energy everywhere. I hope you’ll take time to sit outside, to listen, feel, and pay attention to how things feel inside and out.

Have a wonderful Autumn~

Abundant blessings & Harvest,

One day in June, I got up feeling pretty good, but my mind was going way too fast, as if my thoughts were scattered like a puzzle and I needed help to put them together. I meditated and sat quietly, as I looked out the window and asked for a sign, something to help me to hold on, that would make me smile and feel better. 

I was sitting at the kitchen table, looking out the window without my glasses on. I thought I saw a hummingbird at one of the feeders on the front deck. I grabbed my glasses to see it better, but it was moving so fast I finally decided to go outside and see, while also watering my plants. When I got outside, I was shocked it wasn’t a hummingbird, it was the biggest, bluest Dragonfly I’d ever seen in my life! I was so happy to see him! I watched as he circled around and landed right beside me on a bamboo stick.

I spoke to him and told him he was so beautiful and blue! He just sat, calmly and looked at me! I reached out and was in awe that he actually let me pet him on his wings! I named him, “Blu.” 

I was so excited and happy I began to cry! I asked him to stay and I ran in the house to get my camera. I got several good pictures of him and found he was a bit of a camera ham. I’ve always had a strong connection with Dragonflies and we used to have many of them here some years ago, but hadn’t seen any for a long while. I was dancing and crying tears of joy because to me, it was very clear that he was there to give me a message of hope, to keep believing in the magic all around me and within me and that many things in life can be illusions! 

I’ve always known Dragonflies are very magical and herald big change in ones life, and also about spiritual change. I remember them coming to me in another time in my life when I needed them to help me with truth and believing in what we can’t always see, but feel. 

I went outside later to the patio in the back of the house and he was there too, dancing around me, creating so much joy! 

He’s still here and has some friends too, more dragonflies and also some damselflies, which are similar but the wings are different! I truly believe he was my sign that I asked for and needed so much.  

I feel very blessed that he and my hummingbirds are here. They bring me so much joy, happiness and magic! They remind me of simple beauty, taking time to pay attention and to lighten up and fly now and then!

 Peace, love and joy,
