Prayer Ties

My daughter and I took two prayer ties each: hers are pink at the bottom of the tree and mine are green on the top branches. We each made one wish each per ribbon prayer tie as we tied them to the tree. She needed a little assistance tying hers but was quite capable making a long speech during her wishes, which she whispered to herself. I said mine in my head.
We smiled to each other and I said, “Okay, babes, they’re in the Universe now for them to be created!”
She jumped up and down and said, “Yippee!”
I took a couple of shots and this was one of them.

Planting Season

with all man’s tools and ingenuity
it is the sun and moon that dictate
our crops and our cycles
we take the steps small
one before the other
some ahead, while others
lead us back aways, it seems.
but always these steps
are in tune with the magic
of seasons and timing.
expecting our good
and predictablity to last
for generations to come.
doing our part to heed,
listen and take action
in accordance to Thy will
with these tools and ingenuity
can limit one and so,
we look to Thee.

Back Back Spring Cleaning

Every year or two we have to clean up our back backyard and it requires some heafty tools, as seen here. It cleans the rubbage and feng shui’s the energy in the yard and house tremendously. I’m looking forward to the heaping, sweeping backyard clean up project taking place this week. I’m also cleaning up my thoughts by focusing on what I want and putting positive loving energy around it and letting it go to the universe (see Julia Cameron’s PINK BUBBLE technique). What are your Spring cleaning rituals?
