My Autumn Heart


It’s been exceptionally stunning here in the alpine region while Autumn continues to dance in splendor. Every turn and every step along a trail has me repeating how amazed I am by the beauty surrounding me. I’m not sure what it is, but I find everything more incredible than ever before. Or, perhaps my heart is just opening wider.

Today, I’m mostly just wanting to share some of these incredible portal vistas with you, so that you can breathe in and receive what ever you need in this moment.

I’m also called to mention the animal messengers that are showing up.

We’ve been continuing to experience an abundance of wildlife encounters. I’m not sure what’s up, but we’re seeing more animals in the few weeks we’ve been back than we do over longer periods – especially bears. We came across three bears on a hike just two days ago with our friend (you might recall the injured momma and cub the week before) and the second they saw us they took off like a flash. The black bears here are very wary of humans out in the wild, which is a good thing.

We also saw a deer – synchronously I’d been thinking/talking about the pair of deer antlers I found in October of last year when we were away in similar surroundings and Autumn bounty. And our friend showed us the most precious little momma and baby bat he found transitioned, before he was going to bury them. They were both so tiny and passed peacefully together. We’re not sure why. Bats have been on my mind as well and when he showed them to us, it was like a huge a-ha. (Side note: No joke…Astrid thumped twice really loudly as I was writing about the bats)

I haven’t been able to capture photos of them all, as they’ve been too quick or it didn’t feel right, but I did manage to capture this sweetheart in the garden, below. I saw him twice in the same day – yesterday. I also think he’s the one I saw across the street when we first arrived home. This cottontail is quite large – one of the largest I’ve seen here. Can you guess who it might be grown up? Oh my heart!

I do also continue finding other messenger treasures like these five Steller’s Jay feathers reflecting the 5 elements that create balance.

There are mythology stories about Steller’s Jay saying he is a messenger of hope in disrepair, strengthens the will to live and teaches adaptability and survival, along with use of personal power and presence.

As we continue to ride many energy streams these days on Earth, I’m reminded that there’s potential for whispers to float across the air, rather than become sharp lashes that sting relentlessly. With the upcoming Scorpio New Moon and Solar Eclipse early morning of the 25th, we have opportunity to plunge into the shadows and discover revelations amidst all that’s been tucked away. Even self-imposed limitations may see the light and the Solar Eclipse supports opportunity taking us in new directions when we realize the core of what we’ve been operating from. Aligning with the truth of our realizations and allowing natural movement of emotions they evoke, can set the tone for break-away potentials and more satisfying outcomes.

As I look out on the landscape before me I’m reminded of the vastness of my heart and it reminds me with each expansive breath, that I can open it a little bit wider than it was the day before.

Experiences in life may harden us, yet I’ve found that the tighter we hold to things, the more they cling back and their tentacles trickle into every nook and cranny of our lives.

It’s hard to open to feeling deeply again because that includes possibility of feeling every kind of emotion.. not just the ones we deem more favorable.

I’ve found that the depths of any emotion are inclusive of the flip side of the coin and the deeper I’ve hurt, the deeper I love.

Emotions are a journey and no one can take that from us.

I only know that for me, when I shift my focus wider, my emotions have the space to flow more freely and move organically as a unit like nature and her cycles, rather than isolate unnaturally in a state of perpetual static or decay.

It makes a difference for me.

P.S. If you missed Thursday’s reblogged heart channeled message and mini update, there’s three crystal friends remaining.

  1. Your alpine autumn is amazing and a nice treat as we are having a very muted year here. Your post reminds me of how dull and flat my life has become, probably from closing myself off to so many things. Thanks for the loving reminders that it can be different Tania. 🙏💕

  2. WP is still messing with me, making it very difficult to comment or Like things. In any case, beautiful photos and message! All of my strangeness for the past 3+ years began with a bat in an “impossible” location … and bat sightings (or the smell of a dead bat) for me have traditionally marked times of extensive change and healing.

    • Sorry to hear that about WP! Wonky stuff! 💛 Thank you!! Interesting about the bats! Yes, lots of transitions right now. Synchronously, the day we saw the sweet bats I had just ordered a lovely bat pendant earlier that day. We saw several bats by the ocean too.

  3. lovely photos Tania. I have had a basically and quite unusual creatureless summer except for insects and squirrels. The other day an older deer with prominent antlers pranced quickly across my yard and I was so excited! Typically deer have a few in tow but this one was solo. Thanks for sharing your visions and thoughts here today. ❤

    • Thank you Linda!! Interesting about the decrease in animal sightings you’ve had. But makes that deer with antlers quite potent! Feels important. 🦌
      You’re very welcome! Always a joy to connect with you my sweet friend. 😘

  4. Your photos are so very beautiful, as are your words…”spender, beauty, animal messengers, peacefully, potential.”  I feel better simply reading about your Autumn Heart. And yes, whispers are far preferred over sharp lashes. XO

    Oooooooo I just love this all. xx
    The Heavenly clear portals are stupendous!! 😍
    Through our ‘connected~as~always~ portal’ 😆
    I’ve seen the sweetest bats messengers in the last couple of days…..and was even reminiscing of a particular experience around the campfire the other evening……about how the most beautiful bat flew onto my roof in broad daylight~right outside my window, while I was practicing yoga! I called my girls in to see her; and we were talking to her, and admiring her cuteness as she walked her way up closer and closer to us, and was licking her lips and grooming herself~ and had such love in her face!! I was filled up with tears as she continued to stay near us~ until I received in my heart, the message she was sent to deliver……a harbinger for huge change ahead!! Bats are so deeply Shamanic among so much else, (from what I remember reading at that time)…… and I’ve had other powerful experiences w//bats too!!
    We’ve seen more black bears here this year than normal which has been very exciting!
    And the last 2 days, GB Heron, Red Tail Hawks and more Red Tail Hawks……all at particularly potent ‘entry portals’ confirming the perfect alignment of new life experiences!!!!! (Weeeeeeeee!!)
    This line you shared ESPECIALLY resonated with a beautiful of YES!!!!!!!!! In my heart:
    “………The more I hurt, the more I love…….”
    How powerful. It’s exactly how I feel too!!
    LOVE YOU
    All your Faerie nieces sending hugs and kisses to Auntie T and Uncle D!!!!! x x X x x

    • So love to read about all of the animal messengers and shared experiences. I love that bat has been around you too. There is definite transition at hand in some pretty potent ways. The animals like the bears we’ve both been seeing and also the porcupines we had show up here..have added to a feeling I get around perhaps a big winter or at least some big portions of winter coming. We’ll see..I’m still monitoring the animals, as they usually foretell to me what’s upcoming. I’m happy you enjoyed the beautiful Autumn portals and are moving through your own heart expansion through all that is unfolding. Lots of love, hugs and kisses from us to the faeries there! xoox

  6. I alsways enjoy the picture od where you live, it’s glorious and even more so in Autumn 🙂
