Wapato Lake…Nature’s Bliss

I love traveling to the water! I mean I really really love it!!!

Don’t drink by the water’s edge. Throw yourself in! Become the water. Only then will your thirst end…….. Jeanette Berson

Every time I travel some place new I always want to get close to the water. Well I guess that is true for most people because who doesn’t love the water? I mean really! It is so peaceful and serene! I love to meditate by the water, and revel in it’s healing properties. I took a trip to Wapato Lake that is located right outside of Seattle, WA in Tacoma, and it was beautiful. Check out this wonderful picture I shot below.

I tried to catch both of the little duckies, but one swam away before I could catch him. Still a beautiful shot!

Well, I had to sneak myself in a shot! Bad hair day, but Hey…Who Cares….lol

 

Adventures at the Meeker Mansion: Psychic Fair and Flair

Adventures at the Meeker Mansion: Psychic Fair and Flair

Meeker Mansion was the 19th century home to Eliza Meeker, a pioneer in the Puyallup, WA community. This place is gorgeous and brimming to the bit with historical information. It is so fun to see new places, and this by far was no exception! When I entered the mansion I was greeted by a lovely lady who showed me the layout, and I was surprised that their were over 20+ psychics and intuitive readers inside the mansion. In each area their was a lineup of clients waiting to sit and get a reading done.

I had a reading done by Raea Sunshine who is a talented psychic. She calls herself a psychic for psychics, and I believe her. She is honest, direct and holds no punches. She gives it to you straight….no chaser! That is what I needed…lol.  She performed my reading without the use of any oracle tools (tarot). She just read my different chakra points….from the crown all the way down! Let me tell you she was on point. I truly enjoyed her reading, and will be back. If you are looking for a psychic I highly recommend her.

I then walked to the up stairs of the mansion to find a man who was selling these powerful pieces of artwork. His company is called Living Light Alchemy. Each time I picked up one of his hand crafted talismans I felt the vibrations in my hand electrify. He truly takes pride in producing wonderful healing instruments that can be used during meditation, and for healing sessions.

From the nineteenth century vibe that the mansion provided and the mysticism that I experienced inside the Meeker Mansion I know I will be back for the next Psychic Fair event!

“Snow White and The Huntsman” 3 things I learned from this modern fable

“Snow White and The Huntsman” Review

Starring:
Snow White: Kristen Stewart
Huntsman: Chris Hemsworth
Ravenna (Queen): Charlize Theron

I finally dragged myself to go see “Snow White and the Huntsman” I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed the movie. Not being a super big fan of Kristen Stewart, I still enjoyed her performance.

Rituals, Myth and Magick were at the forefront of “Snow White”. If you pay close attention and can get past the “man” in the mirror (for a second I thought Michael Jacksons’s hologram was going to appear from under that golden sheet)…I digress. If you look closely at The Golden Mirror you will see inscriptions that look like runes surrounding the frame of the mirror. Between that and her black crow meditations we can all get the impression that this movie has some elements of dark magic.

Aside from the Queen eating the hearts and innards of birds, and sucking the life force out of beautiful maidens in her kingdom, we know that “Snow White” has a happy ending. A few twists and surprises are in store along the way, but I say two thumbs up for “Snow White and the Huntsman”

Three things I learned from “Snow White and the Huntsman”

1. Always sleep with one eye open.
2. Things are not always what they seem.
3. Let the light you shine, overpower the darkness.

Lately I have been feeling the need to explore my desire to write. It is not that I am not a writer. I do it all the time. It is just sometimes I get caught up in how my words are presented, listening to my inner critic and it inhibits my writing

Well today I declare

Book Review: Ascension by Susan Shumsky

Ascension: Connecting with the Immortal Masters and Beings of Light
by Susan Shumsky

Book Blurb:

Ascension leads you into the depths of your being to recover what might be called your higher self, guardian angel, inner guru, spiritual guide, master-teacher, or God within. You will meet and consciously communicate with deities, angels, archangels, and masters from worldwide traditions, as well as divine beings personal and unique to you. All of them are eager to meet and communicate with you

My Review:

I am a fan of Susan Shumsky having read another title of her titled “Miracle Prayer” she knows how to gather information and explain loftly spiritual principles in a real down to earth kind of way! In Ascension she follows her same style! Giving an introductory into all of the major spiritual disciplines and the deity/guardians/guides/Gods that govern each discipline. She also provides wonderful guided meditations and exercises for the layperson to raise their consciousness and ascend.

So if you want to be able to transcend the limits and bound of this plane and ascend, or you have a desire to learn about avatars/ascended masters/ guides you need to add Shumsky’s book to your collection. I highly recommend her work. It is phenomenal!
