World Peace and Prayer Day

World Peace and Prayer Day / Honouring Sacred Sites Day “All Nations, All Faiths, One Prayer” Following the birth of a White Buffalo Calf in 1994, the 19th Generation Keeper of the White Buffalo Calf Pipe of the Lakota, Dakota & Nakota Nations— Chief Arvol Looking Horse, was directed to honour the Four Directions with ceremony on Summer Solstice/June 21st. According to Lakota prophecy, the birth of “Miracle,” a female white buffalo, signalled a time of Earth changes and the coming of The Mending of the Hoop of all Nations. The Summer Solstice is said to be a powerful time to pray for peace and harmony among all Living Beings. Chief Looking Horse believes that this day of collective prayer will create an energy shift to heal the earth and achieve a universal consciousness toward obtaining peace. He believes that it is time all people understand Mother Earth is the Source of life, not a resource. WPPD has been held in the US, Costa Rica, Ireland, S Africa, Australia, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, and Brazil. June 21st, 2017 will mark the 22nd year of World Peace and Prayer Day / Honouring Sacred Sites Day and will be held in the Hawaiian Islands and sacred sites around the world.

Puppy Love

Looking for some pics to share with a friend today and found this pic of Loui that I stole from the advert where I first saw and fell in love with him.

I was looking for a Husky pup, when this little face popped up and I instantly fell in love. Rang the guy at 11pm!!

My friend Lea and I went to pick him up from Lancashire and was greeted by a psycho dog, running round in circles, lunging at my face and biting my nose.

 With heavy heart I said I couldnt take him, as I really needed a companion but when his owner told us that he had been re-homed three times already and they brought him back,  I had to take him. My heart broke for him and his crazy ways.  

He was 8months old when I got him and from being a puppy had spent 8-10hrs a day locked in the kitchen while his owners were at work. Hence his separation anxiety and high stress levels.

Its been a long road with him this past 5yrs, however, he has turned into a beautiful soul.  He still has ‘issues’ but then dont we humans too?

After my Jasper went, I didnt think I would ever bond with another dog like that. But Loui is my saviour, if it werent for him id probably still be completely crippled and totally disconnected from my beloved Gaia.

Not sure who rescued who that day but we were meant to find each other ❤

I Wish You Enough…

I wish for you ENOUGH in 2017!!

I WISH YOU ENOUGH.

Recently, I overheard a mother and daughter in their last moments together at the airport as the daughter’s departure had been announced. Standing near the security gate, they hugged and the mother said:

“I love you and I wish you enough.”

The daughter replied, “Mom, our life together has been more than enough. Your love is all I ever needed. I wish you enough, too, Mom.” They kissed and the daughter left.

The mother walked over to the window where I sat. Standing there, I could see she wanted and needed to cry.

I tried not to intrude on her privacy but she welcomed me in by asking, “Did you ever say good-bye to someone knowing it would be forever?” “Yes, I have,” I replied. “Forgive me for asking but why is this a forever good-bye?”

“I am old and she lives so far away. I have challenges ahead and the reality is the next trip back will be for my funeral,” she said.

When you were saying good-bye, I heard you say, “I wish you enough.” May I ask what that means?”

She began to smile. “That’s a wish that has been handed down from other generations. My parents used to say it to everyone.” She paused a moment and looked up as if trying to remember it in detail and she smiled even more.

“When we said ‘I wish you enough’ we were wanting the other person to have a life filled with just enough good things to sustain them”. Then turning toward me, she shared the following, reciting it from memory,

“I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright.

I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more.

I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive.

I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger.

I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.

I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.

I wish you enough hellos to get you through the final good-bye.”

She then began to cry and walked away.

They say it takes a minute to find a special person. An hour to appreciate them. A day to love them. And an entire life to forget them.

Picture taken at Addingford in Horbury – UK

Giant Hog Weed growing from the bank by the Canal.  These are very poisonous, so if you see one DO NOT touch it.  They grow over 6ft tall and tower over their 4-5 ft relatives.

Watching these plants made me see the beauty inside even the most feared, that they hold lightness, and it reaffirmed to me that ALL life is Sacred!

They made me smile and feel joyous inside as they waved their arm in the air, ‘like they just don’t care’.  Dancing and rejoicing this thing called life, their fall from grace as winter strips them of their bounty, yet still rejoicing as they dance with their relatives in the waters of life.

Arms stretched high, caressing the wind as she carries their song to up to creator.  While they bounce along to the rhythm of their beat, connected to our mother and to father sun.

What a beautiful sight it was to see, we stood and watched for a good while before heading on our way, with a little song in my heart and a new beat in my feet.


Many Blessings
