Inspiration from Crystal Cove

20151213_170119_resizedIt’s been a while since I’ve shared beach beauty from Crystal Cove here – which has been a favorite sanctuary of mine and one of the main things I’ll miss about living in this area, although I know I’ll find many enchanted places along our journeys.

Anyway, since my days are counted – only 27 days remaining until lift-off! – I thought I’d share some photos of the ocean inspiration and treasures I found on yesterday’s beautiful sunset walk we took at Crystal Cove after our long day of errands and more RV upgrades. Getting everything on the Magick Bus in tip-top shape before heading out!

It’s as if this little piece of peace at ocean’s edge knows I’ll be leaving soon and wants to see me off with love, as it just happened to be low tide, my eye caught crevasses where these beauties hid awaiting me, and we just arrived before the sun set, so the skies lit up in softness and golden splendor. 4:44 pm, nonetheless! What a blessing!

20151213_170019_resizedIt all tickled my inner child and was exactly the little infusion of magick and energetic boost needed to kick off this week and the rest of the 27 days here, which promise to be very full.

Hope they bring you into greater connection with your passions and spark an inspirational fire to fuel them.12348167_10207805063791728_2551819063593294755_n20151213_165956_resized12369213_10207805064151737_8037570188777236835_n20151213_170045_resized20151213_170221_resized12301635_10207805064591748_591025972316313979_n20151213_170249_resized12391945_10207805064391743_8183081985302979842_n20151213_170418_resized


Breathing in Inspiration of a New Adventure

sunset3bEvery day and every moment is a new beginning…

sunsetbStand in your center.

sunset4Allow your heart to bridge the balance.

sunset2Remember your wholeness always.

Then take a deep breath to embrace the new, releasing with ease everything before this moment on exhale.

Sunsets remind us of that renewing and releasing in the moments that take our breath away.

Before show began, as director sets the stage…

Inspiring sunset images are from last evening while watching an outdoor production of Antony and Cleopatra by the Kingsmen Shakespeare Company. It was such an amazing and shifting sky.

Perfect for what I feel brewing inside myself, and many of us, and all that is incubating for passionate release.


Inspiring Sunsets – Bimini, Bahamas July 2014

I love how synchronicity is always at work. I felt inspired to share these lovely sunset images from my times in Bimini and wanted to listen to music, while putting them together. I knew which song I wanted to listen to, but rather than look for my cd, I went on to YouTube and looked to see if it was on there. There was only one video available of it and it just so happened to feature a beautiful collection of ALL sunsets ONLY to accompany what is one of my all-time favorite pieces I love listening to.

bimini sunsetHow perfect is that?

So I hope you enjoying listening to this beautiful piece, as you explore the images and allow the resonance to integrate with your body, in the energy centers it awakens. I feel it a lot in my Throat and Heart Chakras, as well as Solar Plexus and drawing the energy very deep at center and down.

Both the images within the video and that I’m sharing, along with the music, take me on a journey in partnership with the nature within and without. I love the amazing array of nature’s beauty, and as all things are a reflection of us, it causes pause to recognize the miracle and beauty within us each.

IMG_5027How blessed are we to be able to experience the unique gifts Mother Earth has to offer? And how lucky are we to experience the sensuality of life through this integrated experience that is equally tangible and exquisitely visceral and ethereal all at once.

Every moment is opportunity to experience something unique, as each moment is different and all experiences are relative to the uniqueness we each embody.

I’m grateful to have the ability to experience and feel things on many levels and to enjoy the cyclical changes our Earth and seasons provide us, in mirror to our own transformations.

IMG_5065The enchantment is ever-giving on this beautiful Earth we share and co-create on.

Today I’ll likely being taking a stroll on the beach for an afternoon break, and will be envisioning how these same rich blue waters encircle the globe, connecting us all, and reflect on soon finding myself past the east coast of this country walking along the white sand shores where crystalline aqua waters will immerse my toes and body.

I’ve posted a lot of photos of the amazing crystal clear days in Bimini, but haven’t really focused on the magickal sunsets that vary from evening to evening (with some interesting orbs and shapes that emerge). I was inspired by this beautiful warm weather here and the extended sunny days, reminding me of Bimini, and so this little glimpse of just IMG_5143“some” of the sunset experiences I’ve had are shared for your own inspiration or meditative breaks you may be taking or needing right now.

And if you would like to experience the powerfully transformative and healing energy of Bimini this summer, perhaps you’ll feel called to join us for another heart-full journey in July for the upcoming “Accelerate Your Vibration” Bimini Retreat.

If you’re looking for a way to really plunge into the new, experience opening and greater expansion, as well as nurture greater well-being, balance, and come more fully into embrace of your authenticity and unique voice in this world, then this retreat may resonate with you.

There aren’t words to describe the experience you’ll have in this amazing energy vortex, not to mention when you look into the eyes of a dolphin out on one of our swims.

Don’t forget that if you register by 4/11/14 for this amazing week on the magickal island of Bimini, you can receive up to $200 off.

All participants of this week will also receive a free Brazilian Quartz Crystal that has specially chosen to work with each of you.

My School of Art is the Miracle of Nature Within Me

sunset27I’ve been immersed in creative energy right now, reaching deep from the source of that power to bring forth many inspired creations. I am in process of birthing 13 new Crystal Illuminations sacred paintings, along with some other channelings, in record time. My surges go in flows and so I ride each wave when they arise and then glide to shore to ground into what is in the air next, until another surge emerges.

Yesterday, I was in quite the flow and along with the scorching heat here, it was quite a powerful emission of energy in my room that was firing things up. I had plans to take a beach walk with a girlfriend of mine in the day, but my intuition said to remain in sunset17the flow and if that flow came to closure in time later, a sunset walk felt much more in alignment.

Well, my painting went really beautifully and I was in that vortex of creation where you hit that sweet spot of joyous inner explosion, and this carried me quickly through the day, finishing just at the right time. It was such a high impact of creative energy and along with the heat, my Crown Chakra was feeling a tad bit expanded from the energy in my body rising up and through me.

sunset24So, heading to the beach felt like the perfect way to cool and ground down, refresh, renew, and invigorate for the next wave of inspirational flow for today and tomorrow’s creative continuation.

Because I listened to the energy and didn’t stop or buck the flow, going only when and if the energy felt supportive of doing so, it seems the Universe had a mirroring gift awaiting at my favorite beach here, Crystal Cove.

Words can’t describe the magical quality that was in the air, as we made our way down the cliff steps and spent the next hour and a half melissa-and-mewalking at the water’s edge. The evening was balmy, in the high eighties, the water was refreshing, and the sky was a brilliant dance of miracles recreating themselves, as the sun set on the horizon. It was so surreal. We both felt like we were in some enchanted, exotic location and experiencing a “time out of time”, which this beach seems to create by way of its portal I feel is there.

There was a mellow larger gathering of people in celebration for the holiday weekend that we came upon and yet we were in our own little world. Many photographers for some reason had gathered too, somehow knowing it was going to be an ecstatic sunset, which it was. I saw several of them snapping away at the sunset5natural essence of the evening, capturing even us in our joy. We danced along the shore and through the people – some of which noted our exuberance and yet we wove through like dancing faeries come to pixie-dust the celebration. (yes we literally did glide, dance, and skip along)

I told my Melissa that the view we were gifted and the whole setting and experience we were walking into was like a painting come to life that we had opened the door to. It had the essence of a step back in time, set amidst the old historic cottages on the beach and hill used by artists of the day (first built as a South Seas movie set and seaside colony of the 30’s and 40’s). There were movie set kind of spot lights up too for sunset4this party and we only heard one song, which I’m unfamiliar with the name, but it was a song we both just happen to love that was so perfectly orchestrated to the ambience, mood and energy.

And the sky had brush strokes of painted colors and wispy ethereal qualities that reminded me of where my inspirations come from when I paint, which I shared with her. I am always fascinated with the sky and the dance of colors and clouds, light and cosmic birthing I see there. They mimic the way I paint and I can so clearly see the sky as a mirror of my soul and vice versa.

My school of art has been life, not any classes or school of technique –  simply the miracles of nature and the cosmos are my teachers – the essence of which reside within me. As I dip my brush into every spectrum of sunset23color, and allow the magic of the moment to take over in any flick and swirl of movement ignited, I am mirroring the magic of Source in loving power of creative explosions.

As an artist I am inspired by the natural creative energy that is all around…the magic that is inherent in nature’s ever-changing brilliance. It mirrors to me the power and fragility of each moment that beckons me to reach deeper each day and create from ALL of who I am.

“The sky is not my limit…I am.” ~T.F. Hodge

I am grateful for last evening’s gift and for the creative inspiration and support for today’s painting.sunset10
