Of Suns and Moons and Magical Things

Do you believe in magic?

I believe in magic, and magical creatures. I believe in Angels, and the Fae. I believe there is a white unicorn with quicksilver eyes who drinks moonbeams from the creek after eating violets in the field on nights when the moon is full and the mists hang low. 

I believe there is an energy, a vibration to life that connects us one to another, and to the Earth itself. 

I believe that if we live in a manner as to respect all life, to protect the innocent and shelter the weak, then we are fulfilling a mandate that is as old as this fragile world we inhabit. 

 Are miracles a regular occurrence in your life? 

“People usually consider walking on water
or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle
is not to walk either on water or in thin air,
but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged
in a miracle which we don't even recognize:
a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves,
the black, curious eyes of a child --our own two eyes. 
All is a miracle.”
~Thích Nhất Hạnh 

... and magic is afoot ... To my friends on the flipside, Blessed Yule. The fae are said to be out and about tonight about midnight.Here at Little Beaver Creek we are anticipating rain and storms, alas. Entering into this transitional phase of the year, as the wheel continues to turn, is a time to let go and look forward. Many blessings to all this Midsummer's Eve. ( Me ) From 6/20/2015

Happy Solstice, everyone...for us folks in the eastern time zone, the apex of the Solstice is at 7:04 pm tonight. We're in the window for a coupla days on either side of that, so you can utilize this gateway energy to let go of something that doesn't serve you anymore and walk through the threshold into the new life you WANT to live.  From 9/20/2013 Licia Berry 

We make our miracles, and the joy, the sublime euphoria, is in the process, not the result. It is in the stepping out, the lunge for the brass ring, the good feeling of tired you get after knowing you have given a task your best, and then some. 

So on this day, when the Sun and Moon perform their ancient dance of flirtation, coyly drawing closer to one another then skipping further away, when we have light that lasts longer, and dreams that burn into our brains to the point that we can hardly distinguish the fantasy from reality, at this moment in your existence, step forward, step out, throw off the shackles and restrictions that you have imposed on your potential, and be. Be bold, and bright, and intense, and brash, and fearless. Climb higher and dig deeper. Sleep longer and run faster. Find your magic and create your miracle.
