“The Yin and Yang of Off-Grid Living”

Living full time off-grid is an entirely different situation than visiting for weekends and holidays. I’ve had to learn a different set of organizational skills and shopping trips based on distance, efficiency and logistics not too mention assistance from others when needed. Everyone thinks it’s so cool and sexy, this off-grid living, but there are challenges that arise from time to time that can be tricky. Yet, even as I write I can honestly say, I love it.

I have three cranes sitting on a log in front of the cabin, speaking with each other checking the wind and fish. Their song captured my attention. This is normal. I hear eagles often, their voices carry across the lake, have otters swim playfully in the swim area, buzzards who fly with me while I hike. Jonathan is their lead guy; I named him a year ago. I’ve captured chipmunks my cat has brought in and released them back in the forest. I have a graveyard of mouse bones in front of the cabin from the carnage my cat brings me. I’ve even, lucky me, cleaned up a drawer of maggots left behind from a mouse family that died. (Was really wishing I had a man right then to be my knight! I stomped my feet, took a deep breath and put on my big girl pants to deal with the writhing slimy gross disgusting creatures tucked in the multiple dead bodies.) IMG_0693I had a chipmunk run right up to me, sit patiently till I noticed his four wounds, probably from an owl or hawk, in need of healing. I felt honored. And Mr Snake lives under my dock, a three and a half foot fish-eating reptile that scares the bejezzus out of swimmers.

When I was a child there was a Disney film that captured my heart and attention; Tomasina, a tale about a cat, who found refuge with a healer woman living in the woods. She spoke the language of the animals she healed. I feel I’m living that story. It is so quiet here, there is no outside noise, no light pollution other than a few solar lights from other cabins. And now there are few people. The peace is enveloping. However this is not for everyone.

The yang:
*I rely on solar. If there’s no sun, the noisy generator kicks in. I don’t enjoy this aspect. With fall gently upon us, my quiet refuge changes as I have to rely more on the generator than on my panels. All the smoke from fires eliminated solar power too. *Wind power is nominal and doesn’t generate enough power to matter or be consistent. *Wifi is a satellite provided service which is spare and inconsistent and expensive. Trying to accomplish things online becomes a challenge. *Cell coverage is hit and miss. *Appliances are propane. The refrigerator needs defrosting often. If the tank runs dry, it’s over. *Being mindful of lights is a daily practice. Visitors are usually clueless until the generator kicks in and runs for three hours to recharge the batteries after lights are left on or hairdryers used. (Seriously? Hairdryers?) *Laundry is a weekly job in town an hour thirty away.

The yin:
*The sky is an absolute blanket of diamonds set on velvet. *The sunrises are a daily awakening event~ literally. *The sunsets are a drug I don’t want to give up. *The connection with the natural world’s rhythms becomes a deepening practice as animals appear daily and share their adventures while awareness of nature becomes the calendar I set my day on. *Intuition becomes heightened on every level as my mind becomes clear, away from the constant chaos and clutter of the city. *The buzz in the back of my brain dissipated and eventually disappeared. *And Charlie my wonder dog and Tao my magical carnivorous cat, love the freedom being here gives them, gives us.

IMG_0552

I realize this wouldn’t be everyone’s sense of Eden, however I would highly, ~ no~ emphatically recommend, suggest strongly, everyone spend quiet reflective time in the natural world away from the asphalt cacophony and high tech world that sucks our brains and humanity from us. Too many rats in the box theory. (Did you know that 22yr olds and younger now have fewer deductive reasoning skills to figure out how to do things on their own? I’ve cautioned about this for decades. Now it’s the real meal deal. This is scary. Reflects the dumbing down of America.) It deepens our natural intuitive abilities and opens the heart chakra to the beauty we have available. This equals Love. ❤️ The green heart chakra mirrors the multifaceted green foliage and forests.

I will have to shut it down here in the next month as the cold weather blows in and changes the scenery. Even me, the mountain girl personified, will need a good neighbor and fun interactive things to fill my time as the solitude settles in like a blanket of snow, till next spring when I can move back to where my heart resides.

Big invite: get your sweet ass to the closest park, forest, mountain, river, lake, ocean and be still. Listen. Quiet the mechanism. Open up to the real world. You’ll find new sparkles in the way you see the world and your place in it. It really is a magical place.

 

Cosmic sunshine to you.

“We Have Resources at Our Fingertips if We’d Only Remember”

You know it’s easy to forget what we have available at our fingertips. I know I do. It’s far simpler to swim upstream with the crowd and get caught in the crazed fear maelstrom especially when faced with huge traumatic external factors. Here in the NW we are inundated with fire. Hot nightly smoky dark-blood moons reflect red in the water in front of my cabin. Never have I seen red water. The air rife with ash and hot cinders marks outdoor furniture and the hood and roof of my car, not too mention the trees and landscape.

IMG_1482

Last night I was driving back to my cabin an hour and a half out of Vancouver, the roads becoming worse by the corner as the St. Helens ash softens the structure of the asphalt causing major slides and tarmac washouts. It’s the end of summer; essentially everyone is gone. It’s dark, actually really black even with the full moon, especially since it’s invisible. I watch for moving wildlife. I could feel the oppressiveness of the smoke filling the car, closing the pores on my skin, my lungs getting tighter by the mile. It could’ve been easy to get caught in fear due to logistics and every other dark thing imaginable. Instead I had an epiphany.

Whoa! Candia! Time for a mind shift, a reassessment of my perceptions. Instead of moving into fear I changed my focus~ literally. I took a deep breath. Of smoke. I then tapped into the Universe. Or God, or Jesus, or Yahweh or Buddha or or whatever, whomever, makes you happy and safe and asked for protection, wrapping this big large happy white band of light around my car, around my cabin, my lungs, my dog and cat. And guess what? I instantly felt better. Like immediately. Seriously. The white silty and ashen skies are still thick with smoke. I then expanded the white light out to the forest, to the fires themselves, to all the displaced animals. People.

In truth when we work in tandem with nature, we can accomplish great things. We tend to be like fish swimming upstream instead of going with the flow. The universe supports whatever and where ever our beliefs go. So I changed my thinking and it changed my reality.

Flipping cooler than magic. Well. It is magic because the results are so clear and real and totally unexplainable by normal senses. It is “outside the normal range of frequencies” ~my first tag on my biz cards~ however it applies so perfectly.

So my invite. Join me. Send white light around the forests, the animals, homes, people, around the Caribbean and Atlantic storms. Work with what is instead of charging the space with fear and negativity. Nature will work with us if we work with her.

I know this to be true.

Sending love and light to all of nature’s tumultuous catalysmic onslaughts.

And on one dark thought, we live in a world of high tech, much further advanced than we the public are shown. ”Tis the truth. Our weather has also been manipulated by the ominous powers that control our planet. That’s why it’s even more imperative we gather our sources and forces of goodness and loving intention  to Mother Nature to offset what is being created here in the United States from Florida to Texas to the west. And elsewhere. Please do research if you don’t believe me.

 

Cosmic sunshine to you.

 

PS. No matter what, use your head in cases of extreme danger. We were given brains and a heart. They’re best used in tandem.

“Old Souls, Mature Souls, Young Souls”

I’ve been told since I was quite young I’m an old soul. But that’s not true. I’ve too many opinions, desires and straight-up, just too damn much “fire” to be old. I love wild adventure, pushing the envelope, questioning always seeking new truth, knowledge, awareness and insights, and unbridled passion in relationships. These are not Old Soul characteristics. Those that truly are of the “Old Soul” status are but very few on earth at this time. Honestly, in some ways, they could be considered boring. They are those deep kindly quiet souls that support, love, and just know. No ruckus, judgements, opinions. They know that everything is perfect the way it is and aren’t here to fight the status quo or get uppity about right is wrong and left is right. Old Souls give love from the Light within. They’re here to support the whole of humanity through their higher vibrations and gentle caring natures. They’re the Holy Man or Woman who say nothing and offer us the options and choices to make our own best decisions.

IMG_1481

What of all the individuals offering up guidance and service and of course, opinions, coupled with tons of valuable information? What of their knowledge? I know a lot of people in this category. They are the Mature Souls who have learned through their experiences, sharing their stories, offering guidance and counsel, expanding consciously through the millennia. Mature souls are in Cosmic University having gained a great deal of insight along the road, yet still young, full of piss and vinegar, wanting to explore, adventure and sail the high seas of love, knowledge, questioning, seeking always gaining insight to add to their arsenals. And remember in college there are four years, or levels to get through to move onward. There are many in this category today, from freshmen to seniors on their soul education. Look at the self help book section to see the long list of strong capable souls. Then there are the infant souls, young souls and teenager souls. Imagine getting through kindergarten, grade school, middle, JR high, high school, four years of undergrad, graduate and PHD’s. And post education. The journey of evolution.

And the populace? If we were to observe how deep people explore, care, question, make good choices and decisions about love, sex, behavior, empathy, being of service, offering a hand to others ~kindness~ it’s easy to see where a soul is on their journey through the galleries and galaxies of time. Grade school, the excitement, playful curiosity and enthusiasm of learning and putting together the rudiments and building blocks of social awareness. Junior high with all the cattiness and squabbles and going through huge self esteem growing pains combined with discernment over truths. High school with power packs and social alliances, exploring sexuality, individuality juxtaposed with group consciousness, following the crowd and institutional requirements based on what what’s expected: acceptance versus rebelliousness. To college, discovering deeper commitments and sexual intimacy, working hard to make something of themselves or partying their asses off forgetting who they are. Masters where experience combined with knowledge helps builds bridges of awareness for the good of others. PHD’s where sharing the knowledge is more important than the prestige and ego aggrandizement, to post graduate where being, acceptance and love are the mainstays, the bread and daily butter of human development.

Best part, if there is understanding or even partial recognition of where a soul is on their cosmic path, then the concept of unconditional love, empathy and forgiveness is easier for us to give to those less developed. Wisely said by Jesus, “Forgive them for they know not what they do.” Some souls just don’t have the experience and/or growth yet to operate and live from a place of grace, as they are young in their internal beingness. You can’t expect the same behavior and response from a grade schooler as expected from a college grad. Thus it is with humanity.

Coming from this space of understanding and observation makes a huge difference in perspective of our wildly crazy, diverse, entertaining and wonderful human condition.

It’s the way of our ever evolving species.

 

Cosmic sunshine to you.

“Intervals, Interludes and Transitions: How to Look at Them Through a New Lens”

I had this funny feeling last weekend. I had an epiphany; I wasn’t comfortable with those transitions between situations or events and experiences. I felt uncomfortable having to regain my emotional footing, my sense of equilibrium in those moments or hours and for some, weeks, months, maybe years, bridging one event/place with the next good experiential space. I can get teary then grit my teeth and shake it off, the tough girl coming to the forefront. I’ll explain.

I’ve learned through years of practice to be totally in the moment. We all too often hang out in the past or zoom to the future missing the magic of the present. Just true. So, I’m living in the current minute then realize it too will shift, change and float away, saying goodbye to events, experiences, loved ones, my mind convoluted and spinning, heart rattled or shaken hard. Tears close. Now I’m in the no-zone between time frames, like edges of photographs before the next one appears. This is where the emotional equilibrium can go cattywampus. Where fear can creep into the picture, into our lizard brain, in that “change,” skating on thin ice, the unknown.

IMG_1473

Of course there are opposites; the excitement of going to the next adventure, the next opportunity that’s powerfully motivating and exhilarating, awakening our mental mojo. Our emotional juju. That’s the flip.

But life is a world of duality and dichotomy. For as many anticipatory moments we have over the course of our lives, we ~lucky us~ get to move through those experiences in the middle of the spectrum to the far opposite. These are great ops. Because once we realize how and why we feel the way we do through the interval, no-man’s land, we can “change our minds,” embracing those transitory train-car-moves, and look forward to the new destination, the next station, what’s on the docket, next. Now.

And what if I apply “intervals, interludes, and transitions”  to the Bigger Picture? The brief transitory moments, the connectors, the intersections between the larger experiences and major events in our lives, can be analogous to our multiple lifetimes. These quick, brilliant, hundred year episodes, (~God forbid the anology (wink wink) “bugs on the windshield,” ~)  life-in-the-fast-lane human experiences, are the “in-between” events in the larger cosmic context of our greater, more vast selves/soul wild adventure. Pretty expansive, pretty cool.

My point is to embrace even these uncomfortable transitory events in our lives – the goodbyes, divorce, jobs ending, death, ~embrace humanness~ the unknown ~ as an opportunity to tune inward, listen, get quiet. Breathe. Connect. See what the story is. Because then, we are writing our own script, jumping in and connecting all the dots with focus.

Life is good even in the interludes, intervals and transitions.

 

 

Cosmic sunshine to you.

“Messages from Those Nearly Departed: In Loving Support and Memory”

I think warrior planet Mars collided with Pluto, and traversed into another Star system. All kinds of weird, difficult and painful things have happened to many people lately. I’ve seen many car crashes posted on Facebook. I too, am once again emmersed in sadness at the loss of two wonderful people in my life due to a deadly head-on in Colorado, a father and his sixteen year old son, a young man I’ve know since he was three. Fortunately I saw them several weeks ago, voicing my love to them. But one day “here” on the planet all is well, the next in “another realm” – rough! And the mom, my dear friend, and younger son left behind with extensive injuries is plain-ass heart breaking. I totally love this family! ❤️

IMG_1465

This is where life is challenging. I truly believe there are no accidents but- sometimes   it’s just damn tough to process the realities before us. ~ “I’m not alone,” on this! ~ I know in my heart of hearts “we are not alone.” We are surrounded with love and most importantly The Universe Is On Our Side. It just doesn’t always feel that way. Our lives are honestly damn short. And truthfully,  I see so many wasting their lives away  – never fully Loving-  and being absorbed in bullshit. But of course that too is all perfect. My theme, right?

 

IMG_1466

I’m just totally about the gratitude of being here on this amazing journey, even in the pain and sadness, sorrow and goodbyes. It’s a phenomenal ride.

The day after the accident, I got into the truck here in southern Alberta and the first song that came up on Sirius Radio was by Canadian singer songwriter, Robbie Robertson, from the infamous 70’s group, The Band. The two who were killed in the head on car crash were Robert and Robby Streett, their message coming through loud and clear, ~Robbie and Robert~ Couldn’t be more obvious, – they’re fine, they’re here.  “Please relay this truth even when the truth speaks differently in the earth realm and doesn’t appear the way we want.”

The signs are always with us, even in the darkness. Even in the tears.

And the truth is, I’m even “expecting the best” from all this, expecting something awesome to happen today. (Like a break through in Josslyn’s healing.) And Tomorrow and all the future days.

In loving memory of Robert and Robby, in loving support of Josslyn and Sawyer Streett.

 

Cosmic sunshine to you.

“Expect Something Good to Happen”

I’ve been sitting outside in the sun, the warm southern Alberta wind whipping through my hair. The various clouds are scattered and bulky, revealing mountain peaks behind them when they dissipate. Fires have been raging in British Columbia; even the skies here are muddy to the west from the smoke, with some of the worst fires in history. It’s ironic really, Canada knows a great deal about the U.S., however American’s knowledge of Canadian news and history is sketchy. How many know BC is on fire?

IMG_1463

I feel this is a great analogy to life, history, religion, the bigger picture. We are fed a certain or particular story line and become indoctrinated in that tale. Why reach outside the historical or societal or religious or political borders when everything is copacetic, safe and easy, even when it’s not peachy? Even when it’s only a fraction of the bigger truth? Especially because it is only a small snippet of the larger context?

Because it’s human nature.

When I look at the scenery before me, the world at large, I look with infrared vision. I look with the intention of seeing something more, having the cosmos reveal a bigger more incredible story, an overlaying of energies, hearing voices within the rocks and trees, flowers and sky. Read people’s real truths. I listen with every pore, staying alert to wonderful opportunities and possibilities. I reach outside the boundaries of safety and routine, seeing what really is happening in any given moment, trusting the beauty of it and in it.

IMG_1462

Essentially “Expecting something Good to happen Daily.”

I know from experience it works, is true. Great things do arrive when we expect them. Expectation also creates wings to see beyond the border patrols and capture the greater essence of events, experiences and stories. And truths.

 

Cosmic sunshine to you. ☀️

“The Costco Mystery”

Okay, here’s the Costco story. The events though straight forward are actually curious, intriguing and baffling. You decide the what, where, how of it because truthfully, it’s quite mysterious.

IMG_0028

This April my family and I went to Whistler for spring skiing, my fav!  In preparation we stopped at the north Seattle Costco for supplies. Mr. Canada was with me. We decided to be extra organized; I would shop while he got the gas.  We both entered into the building together, he took the Costco card and went back to the car. About 10 minutes later he found me in the produce department all stressed and embarrassed.  The card was missing. He left the building with it in his hand, got to the car then realized the card was no longer in his hands or jacket or pants. He then retraced his steps in the parking lot and back inside the building. No card. Nothing. How it simply vanished was odd. Of course one could think, he simply lost it, right?  However….well, I’ll explain.

IMG_0029

At the time I thought, no worries and had another card issued. We shopped, got the gas and returned to my son’s house to organize and create space for him in the backseat.

While we were inside gathering the last of the ski equipment, Mr Canada came into the house ashen and jittery and looking incredibly perplexed after rearranging bags in the car. Behind the drivers seat was a guitarcase, a pillow and bags. Underneath all of them, directly on the backseat, looking up in all its white plastic glory against the backdrop of black leather, was the original Costco card. Mind you, neither one of us had opened the backdoor of the car, yet alone moved things to deliberately hide the card from one another under all the bags.

I laughed. Said, “Wecome to my world, where everything happens and is an open possibility.” Because it is. He still didn’t buy it or believe it…yet. It was just too damn weird so he worked out a half a dozen scenarios as to how it could’ve happened. Ha!

Life is much more grandiose and complex and beautiful than we can imagine. To me, these mysteries are here to remind us, nothing is truly as it seems.

Suggestions as to the cause? Multiple realities overlapping, a parallel universe, a mischievous angel, Dale on the the Other Side playing prankster, Mr Canada’s Multiple-Reality-Self getting his attention to awaken his beliefs, and/or a combo platter of all of them? And maybe even something more incredible beyond these ideas?

Anything is possible.

Here’s to Costco.

 

Cosmic sunshine to you.☀️
