Cause for Pause, Deep Earth Richness & Upcoming Enchanted Realms Collection
After Autumn colors swept through the region here and early snow teased us, we’ve been experiencing a warming trend in the mid and upper 50’s and as high as 60 with no real precipitation yet in sight, although frost and dustings do linger in shady spots and streets overnight.
When we hike the uppermost altitudes we do still hit some snow patches, frosty portions of trails, and even ice filled creeks and frozen top layers on lakes.
It’s just no where near the levels of years gone by.
While we’re enjoying the sunshiny warmth for continued hiking, biking, and kayaking that we missed this Summer due to all the fires and hazardous smoke air, it also points to the continuing trend of change. We’re used to snow on Thanksgiving and ski resorts opening here for the Thanksgiving weekend, but all of that is on hold – kind of like a collective pause.
In the meantime, we’re taking advantage of the beautiful weather and immersing in Nature, grateful to have these opportunities we were sad not to have this year in the abundance we usually do. So, we see it as a little gift from the Universe, extending our Summer activities.
A couple of days ago we had another of our stunning kayaking experiences and it was even more amazing than last time, literally with no one out but us. It was so beautiful we even set up our beach chairs and enjoyed some time relaxing at water’s edge – and yes, I was able to wear my bikini!
Everything was so still and quiet, reflecting that pause and deep breaths. The need for creating little pockets of repose has been increasingly recycling through my life and feels vital to the landscape at large. That’s included the spaciousness for re-evaluating things, shifting courses for the time being, and even luxuriating in just doing me, which temporarily brings more peaceful silence and removal from outside stuff within that self-nurturing bubble. I tend to be more quiet these days, not just in terms of less posting, but also more to myself in general. And yet, there’s SO much conversation and connection going on even if not with the humans in my life. 🙂
Watching my avian water friends along the shore was confirmation of this.
Synchronously, a solo female mallard duck and a seagull who I felt was also a female, were the ones who were drawn into my frequency zone.
They spoke to me of my own native essence as a Pisces who satiates in my watery world as a form of both revitalization and constant recreation from within the womb of consciousness. They remind me that although I am often on my own, I’m never alone, and in many ways I thrive standing in my frequency.
Nature always reflects everything for me and is constant support in my life during all ebbs and flows.
I’ve always loved how Nature embodies so many seeming opposites together that work beautifully as a unit – much like I know myself to be a walking dichotomy of opposites merged into one.
There is a natural cycle, structure, inherent wisdom, sacred geometry, and symbiotic relationship that abides by certain unspoken universal ground rules, but there is also incredible variety, unusual evolutions, surprising mutations and resilient behaviors, and freedom to be wildly you that she speaks to so beautifully.
When I face frustrations in my process or feel restricted in some way, while I teach myself new, more freeing ways, I’m reminded of how Nature doesn’t complain, but simply discovers new ways to thrive or renew. She reminds me of the resiliency inherent within and that sticking to my commitments will see me through and the balanced way to that is by remaining flexible, yet committed, and focused, but open to change.
I always note the things that show up around me and that draw my attention at different points in life or during specific time periods. I’ve been seeing a lot of really deep Earthy, base energies, rich inner worlds, mysterious dimensions, and the mushroom realms, roots of trees, lush moss and lichen strewn dark Fae realms, and grounding, magickal, and protective stones and crystals calling out. And alongside that, stones that bridge Above and Below, are unconditionally love, expansive, and humanity/Earth healing focused along with light codes and incoming messages from star systems of the beyond are streaming through. It’s a mix of Middle Earth combined with Cosmos beaming a helping hand of coded communication to help navigate alignment.
Yesterday’s hike unveiled a tiny, maybe three foot area just off the path down a slope where sparkly gems felt to literally pop out of the Earth.
I’ve never seen so many little raw quartz like these and never on this trail, but it was as if these stones had unveiled themselves because they know the time is now and there’s work they can, and want to, assist with. The unusual aspect to them was how clear they were. Whether full clear or stones with pockets of crystalline gemmy areas encrusted on top, their clarity spoke to something needed right now more than ever.
And the fact that there were quite a few smoky quartz – something I never find – was again that deep Earthy energy speaking loudly. In fact, there were a few full crystal smokies that were like little gems.
One in particular was super dark…nearly black, but golden amber clarity when held to the light.
I received the message these will assist in the days ahead, the inner and outer realm work, and gridding the new into creation.
Needless to say, things are taking me on a rich journey within both the seen and unseen realms within and without. And this continues to deepen my relationship with all of consciousness, Nature, and the worlds that dreams are made of and myth and lore speak of.
Because of my connection with Terra – our ever-giving Earth Mother – nearly all of my work, creations, and way of life are inspired by my relationship with her. I’m sure you’ve noticed that and it’s also no wonder that rabbits are my copartners in life – beings of the liminal times that move between above and below Earth.
And so, I’ve created a mini collection that will be the last creations for 2021, due to debut this Friday, December 3rd.
I’ll be updating the Ready-Made Items to Invite Your Magick Out page that day. I plan to have items hop on at 8 am PST and 11 am EST.
This update will be my Enchanted Realms Collection and will include the Cosmic Egg Blossom Mandala portal painting I shared in a previous post. The collection will of course be Nature-based with magickal infusions from inner and other realms.
I love that their birthing is on the morning of the Sagittarius New Moon Solar Eclipse that will ignite just before midnight that day, here in Pacific Time zone land – early morning Saturday 12/4 for Eastern Time folks.
Until then, I have updated that same page with only the items that remain. I deleted all the sold ones to make it easy to see what’s available, and I also removed all pre-order items, as I can’t take anymore commissions right now.
What IS available:
About half of the Forest Witch Magick Broomsticks went to new homes, so we have just 6 remaining. Something I CAN take a custom order on, is adding faery dust to your broom (or broom for a friend) upon request. If you’d like it sprinkled with a little golden sparkle on the broom bristles, please let me know when you order.
There’s also just 1 Magick Smudge Fan remaining, which is an absolute beauty. Because it always felt regal to me, it’s received an upgrade addition of genuine topaz and sapphire stones – now it feels complete – and I took new photos to share its opulence. The colors and energy are so Autumn and Earthy rich.
The Magick Wands and Cosmic Egg Blossom Mandala you find at the bottom of the page are place holders for now. As I make wands I will post them there for purchase and on Friday, the painting will become available as a very special offering.
Please keep shipping time in mind if there is anything you purchase as a holiday gift. I am going to be shipping all items up until December 9th, but after the 9th I will not be able to ship anything as I am taking some personal time away and off through Christmas. So any orders after the 9th will go out after Christmas.
And if you didn’t know, every order receives surprise gifts. 🙂

And a last reminder that I’ll be removing the Reiki and Phone/Email Support page after this Friday, 12/3 which features highly discounted specials on any of these support systems. So, if you’re interested or want to gift one of these to someone, please register before then here:
I really enjoyed our first Collective Energy Dynamics Forum session for November 2021. Thank you everyone for all your great feedback and thoughtful questions. I look forward to December’s questions so I can get your recorded session out in the next week or so.
Until Friday, sending you all some deep-rooted energies to anchor your journey with greater solidity and sense of clarity even if you don’t know where the path is headed.
To Create Is Your Power ~ Intentional Creations to Invite Your Magick Out
When you’re feeling blocked, challenged, or frustrated, creativity has a power to shift everything. Many chronic experiences and even depression can be alleviated through creative expression and moving energy in ways that share your unique essence. Why? Because it moves that stifled and unused energy, transforming feelings of disconnection back into connection and passionate desire.
And if you don’t see things you like in the world, creating is a way to put more of what you do like out there.
If you are not creating in some way, it may feel as if you are dying and in fact you are diminishing your life force because you are inherently a creative being.
I know I go through spurts of creativity from small doses to larger ones, depending on my energetic needs and what’s going on in my life and around me. It’s kind of like the seasons of Tania, just like Nature has her seasons.
I also discovered along the way that having different outlets of creativity truly helped activate more parts of my brain, but also of my heart, and definitely more of the latent parts of my DNA to come alive and awaken from their slumber.
Even the fact that having rabbits – the ultimate abundant, fertile, creativity spirit animals – are more resonant to me and have been with me through the most important years of my life, speaks to how vital this creative energy is to my well being. So much so, that I have a constant daily reminder right there staring into my heart and leading my heart daily.
The more you engage creativity, the more life force, overall well-being, expansion, and flow is available to you.
Creativity also helps you tap into your multi-dimensional self, which opens a plethora of possibilities.
When you feel trapped or there’s no way out, creativity unlocks a new door for you that was sitting silently closed down the dark hall.
To create is your power – a superpower in fact – and no matter which way you choose to bring through your creative spirit, your body, heart, mind, and soul will thank you.
That said, I’ve been enjoying one of my bigger spurts of creativity recently and the rainy days have added to endless rabbit hole creative projects here in the Wonderland imaginarium.
Whether a mandala portal to transform and awaken…
A mini world for your faery heart to take flight in…
Avian medicine to create ritual, cleanse, purify, draw in supportive energy, or carry prayers and intentions to the Universe/Great Spirit…
Or elemental wands that unapologetically speak for the wondrous being you really are…
There’s an intentional creation awaiting that invites your magick out.
I invite you to explore some of these heart-filled creations that are available to bring home, gift to others, and even pre-order – a fun, new option you can explore at this new page link:
Pre-Order & Ready-Made Items to Invite Your Magick Out
Wishing you a magickal 11/11!

I’m devoted to bringing awareness to animals, Mother Nature, and the Cosmos, but rabbits are my passion and I’ve committed to being a voice particularly for them, as a way to share all of this.
As shared in the link above, I find rabbits to be unique in that they transcend or bridge just about every category of animals. They are domestic, farm, and wild animals and not only are seen as animal companions/pets, but also are farmed or hunted for their meat, farmed or hunted for their fur, and are one of the most commonly used and abused animals in terms of lab testing and experiments, as well as cruel forms of amusement. Not only have rabbits become synonymous with cosmetics animal testing throughout the world, enduring horrendous suffering in the name of “beauty,” but their image is the most recognized and used on cruelty-free labeling.
Miyoko’s Kitchen was live on Facebook yesterday interviewing the incredible Marcy Berman of Save A Bunny where I adopted both Joy and Astrid from. Save A Bunny was the recipient this month of Miyoko’s 1% of ecommerce sales.
You may be able to see the interview here if you’re on Facebook, as well as meet some of the rescued wild fire baby bunnies and Merle:

I love that Marcy and I share so much of the same connection to and understanding of rabbits and we even both call them tiny horses.
Marcy is an amazing resource for anyone wanting to know more about the bunnies on a deeper, intuitive level, as well as in areas of awareness, activism, and daily care.
Thank you to all helping to raise awareness for and support rabbits, as well as all animals and Nature at large, as they truly are our mirrors for harmony and well being if we listen to the messages they have to share for living with greater consciousness and compassion.
