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,

“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.~

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.

I can hardly believe its April! April showers are in full force and I’m believing they help things to “flow” easily and cleanse Mother Earth. The woodlands are getting greener each day even though there’s still a chill in the air. Life is busy, time flies and I haven’t been here to write anything for a little while. My “need to do” list has been pretty long, but I’m glad to be here now. 

When I created this blog, I hoped to casually come here and post things of interest and share some of my writings, but I don’t know if I’m the type to share what I did today, what I had for dinner or personal stuff like that on a daily basis. I enjoy Facebook and Twitter because I can write or share short blurbs and quotes, some of my own thoughts and be myself.

The New Year started off with good energy, positive intentions and a feeling of peace that big things were on the horizon. My New Year’s thoughts were on simplifying my life, in all areas, and focusing more on me and my dreams. I wanted to simplify material things, my home, my online ventures and my whole life! My health is very important, especially since I’ve been dealing with poor health for a long time. For about five or six years, my attention was directed to my health, dealing with tests, medicines, hospitalizations, several doctors, physical therapy and constant pain. This almost consumed my life but I was determined not to let it. I did my best to continue online with my Spiritual Groups at Yahoo and keep afloat. I didn’t tell everyone because I didn’t feel they needed to know. I told my closet friends and those that worked with me on the groups. I stopped doing Readings and Spiritual Consults and just maintained all the things I had created online, and did my best.

I’m finally beginning to see the light of day with my health. I’m taking it one day at a time, but I’m able to concentrate more and be gentle with myself. I do believe when I was very ill, it was all for a reason. I learned so much from it all. I had to depend on other people to help me, learn to ask for help, sit and listen from within for the lessons and love myself no matter what!

As a Writer, my dream has been to have some of my writings and books published. I’ve always loved to write, since I was a child, but once I got onto the internet and began writing and sharing what I wrote, it began to heal my soul and help me in more ways than I ever could have imagined. Many of the things I write come from a higher place, from SpiritGod, visualiations and dreams. I knew I was to publish my books soon and that’s when I became ill. I went through a huge imbalance in my life and had to take time out to learn more before moving forward into the publishing world. I had done so much research and asked questions, but I wasn’t ready yet. It just wasn’t time.

Now, I’m ready! I’ve signed with a Publisher, as of March 1 and my first book will be in print by summer time, this year! That’s one reason I’ve not been blogging as much. I hope to share each week at least, what I’m doing, how it’s going and my feelings about the whole process, as I complete my book and it’s available for others to read! For now, I’m editing and working with the Publishers on pictures for my book cover and inside templates. There’s so much to all of this,  at least  for me, because I do still have my health to deal with, but I’m blessed it’s getting better and I’m positive everything will be done in good time, in Divine time!

Thank you for reading my blog and for being in my life. I appreciate everyone that’s continue to believe in me, my writing abilities and my book! So many have been a source of inspiration and lovingly have never given up on me, pushing me a long to get the book finally published. I am grateful. Thank you.

Peace, light, joy and love,

    Fran Hafey~Mysti
