A Midspring Night’s Dream, Angelic Eve & Cosmic Waters with Nestor
My days have been quite full recently, but since today is a special day I thought to share a quick post connected to the meaning of this day, a dream, and to share images of yesterday evening and last night that filled my heart with enchantment. I have actually been receiving downloads of themes and messages for upcoming blog posts, but haven’t the time as of yet to immerse in writing much, so I trust their timing will unfold divinely.
I am currently working a very special commissioned painting that is taking most of my extra time (and in fact does have connection with all of this), outside of the mentoring sessions, and when not creating the balance I need in life. I took some additional “me” time over this long weekend while Dave was away on a silent retreat, creating my own version of retreat while also singing my lungs out during painting hours. Moving all of that energy felt really good, especially since I find myself in deep contemplation over things the last few days – no surprise with the Scorpio Full Moon.
Today is a day I always honor, as it was this day thirteen years ago that my twin soul in rabbit body, Nestor, returned to the stars. It also happens to be Dave’s thirteen year vegan anniversary, so it was perfect for him to create the quiet space for himself too.
Nestor has been around a lot and appeared in my dream the night before the Full Moon. As I shared with a dear friend, it spoke to the emotional waters I navigate with/without her and literally did have both of us on a large square log raft of the old days traveling twice across extremely rough waters in the thick of the night with just two to three others with us. The first time was without anything but ourselves and the second time we were traveling with packages of special items that I tied and had attached around my arms for the very important ones not to get lost when the raft flipped as it did the first time throwing one person off. I was quite strongly tethered to the raft, myself, and the second time when packages were going to be crossing the waters with us too, I took extra precautions. One package – a box – had Nestor inside. I don’t know who put her in there, but she was chewing her way out and I had to get to her to make sure she didn’t get loose and that I could keep her safe. That’s all I remember and of course I’ve received layers of messages from it.
These images from yesterday evening nearing 7 pm were the beginning of feeling a lot of Nestor’s presence shining through, around and upon me in a literal way.
The light was so lovely through the sliding glass door of our bedroom and the angle of the Sun was hitting the lake just right beyond the trees, that there was a much larger area than normally you would notice, of lake sparkly like a gem through the forest.
In person you could clearly see the mountains on the other side of the lake, the shoreline there, and the sparkle on the water in this area that is larger than appears in the photo (see center below).
But photos blur it into one big glowing light between the trees – still magickal.
I took some of these photos outside on the deck and the others from inside looking out, as the light was beautiful from both perspectives.
I felt a whisper to flip the camera and include myself and here is where I feel Nestor’s presence making herself seen. This photo below is taken without flash.
I noticed the way the light looked so angelic and glowed in an even larger emanation around the Sun than the other photos, as well as a light beam streaming through to my third eye and light hitting my heart chakra.
Then last night before bed I stepped outside.
These are photos I took of the Moon magick in the secret faery garden.
It was very still last night and although the last few days brought in a cold front, it was actually quite comfortable outside in my jammies so I decided to explore the garden and check out the Moon.
In person the sky was fully clear in the opening where the Moon appeared and so was she crystal clear with mystical clouds moving around her.
Without a high quality camera it’s usually a challenge to capture the details of the Moon at night, but I love the mysterious essence that did happen, along with the glow of faery solar lights in my garden, and even the touch of pinky peach clouds that appeared around the Super Pink Moon – the first Supermoon of the year.
These photos felt like a lovely accompaniment to my previous blog You Are A Garden Worth Tending that had photos of all the enchantment and light dancing in my garden currently.
A little taste of day and night at the Forest Portal.
