Cycles of Mourning Leading to Renewal ~ Flower Moon Blossoming Potential
Waking up to Jack Frost’s sneak appearance heralded an interlude blog post before returning to the shares lined up in my intuitive queue. 😉
I’ve continued to experience strange, but mysteriously beautiful and odd things, as well as powerful messengers, findings, and even dreamscapes – both my own and of me appearing in other people’s dreams they share with me.
Coyote continues to cross my path – she just did again two days ago – I found another Algiz Rune in the forest (below), discovered nearly half of a transitioned female mallard duck, and held space for my dear Cosmo, whose birthday it just was four days ago.
Finding the female mallard came right after seeing mallards swimming in the pond with only one duckling. The others may not have made it, but then seeing the one female dead was like a rebirth cycle right before my eyes.
Bones and transitioned animals always seem to find me amongst other discoveries. It appears to be my role as a bridge to also witness and hold space for the natural cycles. I honor every one I find in their own way, bury, do energy work, and receive the messages.
Finding the female mallard also spoke to my own shifts and rebirthing I feel underway, although the form is unknown as to what will unfold.
The enchanted and mystical sightings of late on hiking trails hold promise that whatever does, will be in divine flow. In these times, having these supportive messages has brought much needed comfort.
There’s a sacred feminine aspect transmuting across the collective. It is this depth I’ve been navigating recently as to its merging with the new.
The winds of change indeed keep blowing and in fact we have Spring snow blanketing everything today. It came in late yesterday and continues on as I write this. We’re at about five or six inches where we are and more up at the mountain tops.
So, yes, just as the blooms begin to pop along the trails here, a Spring snow storm blows in. Continuing in the theme of “expect the unexpected” these beauties you see in all the photos from yesterday, above and below, are under a little snow blanket today that tucked them in last night.
The weather shifted mid-hike yesterday and as we climbed up the trail with full lake view the whole way, we watched as the clouds started to engulf the north end of the lake and edge toward us. On our descent, the warm sunshine turned to brisk wind and clouds.
There were so many beauties starting to emerge, including the very first wild irises, and to think this is just the beginning though is incredible, as there will be so many wildflowers everywhere in all varieties from miniature for only faery eyes to see, to large and center stage for all eyes to gaze upon.
Indeed you know I stop to smell all the flowers and marvel at their beauty. Their time in the sunlight is fleeting so I embrace every moment I have to experience them when I can. You never know what’s coming next and the time you’ll have to enjoy something. “Do it now” is my way of living life fully.
A Spring snow blanket now casts its wand of enchantment everywhere and actually feels so perfect for what I’m experiencing within, as the waves of intensities and softness ebb and flow. Cocooning in reflection and transformative incubation is where I find myself still, so it doesn’t surprise me that Jack Frost is still sneaking about. In fact, I find him comforting.
That’s also mountain life for you, as if you choose to live in the mountains of any region, nature and weather patterns are ever-changing, moment-to-moment. That’s the beauty of why we live here and personally I have found every change to be consistent with my inner world. Perhaps it is for others, too, even if they choose not to embrace it.
But the element of surprising changes is also reflective of the unpredictability of these times and we can either fight or flow with – the latter being more like Mother Earth.
There’s a constant cycling of death and rebirth, mourning and renewal happening, but with everything speeding up, it all seems as though it’s intensified more than usual. I continue to hear of the loss of loved ones, including animal companions, everywhere and even if one is not experiencing these literal physical losses it may come in the form of symbolic transitions within certain areas of our lives or certain aspects of our individuality and human expression.
Many souls are not meant for the new frequencies coming in and others are able to support the new frequencies far better from off-planet. And even their transition itself aids the shifts in motion, as everything carries an energy signature and key codes that are connected to the whole continuum of what is in momentum.
A lot of transitions continue as the Earth collective recalibrates and everyone decides, on a soul level and within their divine contracts, where their role is most useful. If we only identify as human, this can all be confusing and devastating. When we begin to soften our scope into curious exploration of more than just these physical bodies, we start to understand a bigger picture at hand.
We are mourning and celebrating every moment.
Having experienced the worst loss in my life has helped prepare me for every loss that’s come after and helped me transmute them as the gifts, rather than punishments, that they in fact are. That doesn’t mean our human hearts don’t feel pain, but every feeling is a portal to The Great Mystery.
As I ride another wave of complex and contrasting energies, I see that we’re in the doorway of the next Lunar cycle and so everything I’ve been seeing around me and feeling within doesn’t feel out of sorts.
I’ve always been extra connected to Earth and her cycles – in fact since I was young, I’ve actually seen how I’m tied into her expressions including earthquakes and shifting weather patterns. Interestingly, we’ve felt quite a few earthquakes over the last month or so that have taken place on the California side. We live on the Nevada side, but these recent shakes have echoed inner shifts and my own “letting off steam” during processing. We actually had never really ever felt any rocking and rolling while living here in the years now, or previously. And suddenly 4 to 5 rumbles have rolled in closer proximity and I found it reminiscent of years ago when I would have something huge change in my life or an epiphany happen and boom!
But like the blossoms that have emerged, I have in fact felt a softening of the rough edges to collective energies I’m transmuting. I am also taking steps to amp up my energetic boundaries, do some intentional personal spell castings of my own, and getting my hands in another faery kitchen alchemy creation from yesterday’s gorgeous manzanita harvest – the last of the season.
I don’t know what it is about these blossoms, but they really touch my heart and feel like the perfect ingredients needed right now. I managed to harvest eighteen cups this time of the sweetest little faery blossoms that tickle my heart. And as the snow falls today, I’ll be cooking up batches of delight with them.
With a heart full of gratitude, I thank the Elementals of the land for their gifts and blessings. All I want to do these days is immerse in the richness of Earth all around me. Thank goodness for the bounty of nature we live in. There is nothing to complain about and everything to be thankful for.
There’s been a plethora of enchanted and mysterious little finds, including a bunch of portals and vortex areas like these:
I’ve definitely been anchoring more into my inner Forest Witch lately.
Finding this incredible giant tree root creating a witchy throne portal full of deep mystery and powerful energy, was just the perfect activation.
This coming Wednesday the 26th ignites the Sagittarius Super Blood Moon Total Lunar Eclipse – this Full Moon is also known as the Flower Moon (synchronous to all the wildflowers in bloom right now) and will undoubtedly continue to inspire a plethora of blossoming transformation in our lives.
It’s a time to be explorative and adventurous, add variety – the spice of life to our lives, communicate with clarity, be open to possibilities and options beyond your limited scope, stay open minded in general, release attachments to anything rigid and that blocks you to your wholeness, and embrace the potential for emotional cleansing that leads to renewal.
Full Moons are a time for taking stock of all you DO have to be grateful for and to be extra mindful of all that you complain about day-to-day and moment-to-moment.
How might you refocus that attitude to be more effective in actually funneling energy toward change, rather than constantly spinning a web of negativity and limited perspective? Everything that bothers you holds the alchemy needed to free you.
Look at what needs a little clean up in your life and pluck things out so you can recreate more with conscious intention.
Try to recognize the good in your life and all the blessings around you, including the people around you who despite any perceived shortcomings have their own challenges they face relative to their life path, which we have no idea about since we’re only here living out our own – and may not even really connect the dots to all of that ourselves.
This is a time to reflect and then plant literal and symbolic seeds, then water them with more true, unconditional and compassionate love.

You have a great attitude towards change, life cycles, and the wild weather swings. I love the look of where you live, but probably won’t enjoy the cold and snow hanging around this long. 😵 Hugs…
aw thank you brad! and big hugs to you!! mountains are unpredictable for sure! we’ve had very warm spring weather and low 70’s or upper 60’s, then this interlude for a couple of days. so it’s not been anything lasting. just pendulum swings. hehe! i’ve heard there are big droughts again especially in california with fires already starting so i’ll take any precipitation we can.
Clearly you have adapted and enjoy where you live. I haven’t found my place.
Beautiful photos as always. I love the Forest Witch hat! ❤
thank you L!! i thought you might 😉 hehe!
Your post Tania holds deep truths and mystical portals. Snow in late May mixed with blossoms, quite a paradox. Sending appreciation for your wisdom and light.
I’m so grateful for your loving energy Linda. Always feel so much genuine connection from it 💖 Yes! You’re so right! Quite the paradox! I feel like life increasingly is that and my own life for sure feels to have always been..Pisces two 🐟 fishes 🐟🙃 hehe! Much love!!
Those manzanita blossoms!!!!! And then the tree with the sun shaft….. and the portals by all the trees xx
And your hat— love it, them, and you so much. There was such depth in this post and I SOAkED it all into my heart and soul. ALL of it. Thank you soooooo much for everything you shared! 🌟🌟 🌛🌕🌜
I know!! 🌸 I’m obsessed! Lol! Yeah that towering tree heading up into the sky with sun beam from the portal was wow! I’m with you on all of the energies. They captured my faery heart.
Thank you so much! The hat is one I’ve had but found the pin and it was perfection 🥰 now I feel complete lol! Thank you always for feeling and expressing as you do! Love you too
Wow, these pictures! Such magick about.
Is that the WytchWood pin? The spiral snail shell…oh…weee…how forest witch perfect!
I’m with you. Carpe diem. Live in the moment, appreciating every one we get. Life after all is simply a collection of moments.
Happy early full moon blessings! Sending much love to you.
yes, there’s been a lot going on in front of and behind the lens! LOL! you always have a good eye and we both are drawn to the same things, as i remember the syrup synchronicity too 😉 i sure appreciate your kindred spirit, moon blessings, and love! warmest wishes, hugs and love to you too!
I agree that all is intensified….2021 especially although much was occurring the year leading to this as well….the changes are quick and surprising many. In reminding ourselves that we are the current and the frequency we can surely master these together and with the net. Rebirth is accelerating. Celebrate it all, a fabulous attitude. Great pics by the way 😉
Thank you so much for your reflections Sherry. I agree. Things are going to continue shifting big time and we’ll need to be there for one another. Lots of love 💘
Indeed, magic beauty is everything that nature has to offer.
I’ve also planted a lot of seeds, literally. Most are sprouting.
The energy here where I am is the one of uncertainty. We’ve been in lockdown since last fall and it might be ending by June 14, hopefully. Canada is behind the US with vaccinations, therefore, we cannot dream about traveling anywhere yet.
You’ve visited gorgeous sites. I’ve never seen manzanita flowers, but they sure look amazing.
Well, I’m staying just where I’ve been for almost 2 years, leaving house extra rarely. I wouldn’t know what the outside looks like.
The only place I travel is my art and that has no limitations and no boundaries.
Transition is welcome because it’s clear we cannot continue like it is.
I always enjoy your posts and your hikes.
That’s so wonderful to hear of your own garden you’ve planted Inese! I feel as artists we naturally gravitate to creating beauty and weaving imagination into everything our hands can get into. Gardening, cooking, decorating, you name it. You are such an incredible artist and so I imagine your garden is and will be lovely! I’m glad to hear you’re lockdown sounds to be opening soon. Crossing fingers that things will change to enable more freedom again. Thank you for your beautiful comments. I always appreciate your stopping by and I’m glad I could bring manzanita flowers to you. Maybe they might inspire a painting one day for you. Who knows. I’m glad you have your art to journey with. I feel that is a gift of creativity, that we can take ourselves anywhere within the boundless realms of imagination. I’m hoping with you for big big change to come, as I agree…this can’t go on anymore. Thank you again dearly. Sending you lots of love and warm wishes.
