Embrace The Change In Seasons

DSC_6032We are just changing seasons here. Fall is here and Winter is around the corner which in this neck of the woods means snow. Scott and I don’t let Winter and the coldness and snowstorms keep us indoors. We embrace each season as it comes. Growing up as kids we were always outside skating on frozen ponds and sledding on hills I always enjoyed the crunchiness of the snow and the stillness of a blizzard. It was back in the days when you played outside all day and we loved it! Right now we are enjoying Fall. The leaves on some trees are just starting to change and we always appreciate Mother Nature’s beautiful plan. We both love Fall too. She is here. We plan many walks in the woods and on the beach and apple picking on a u-pick farm and choosing a pumpkin from a pumpkin patch. Mary’s message today is to embrace the change in seasons wherever you live on this planet.

And This Is According To Mary!

Winter Therapy

Mary’s message today is about even though it is getting cold outside you still need to get out and embrace nature. Nature is very healing,. We are all part of Mother Nature. Even  when the seasons change  we still need to bundle up and go for walks  in the woods or along the beach.  We are made of her so she can heal us just by being in her. Think how good you feel after a walk in your local  park or  on a beach.  Being in Mother Nature raises your vibration so you feel happier. Scott and I didn’t get out this weekend and I feel it myself today. We had to stay inside and clear out my basement for a contractor coming to my house to do some work. (That is why this message is a day late too. So sorry.)

Natural Ways To Cope This Winter

Mary’s message today is for  those of us now dealing with Winter. Shorter days mean less daylight.  We are more susceptible to depression.  Embrace the Sunshine if you can.  Scott and I make sure we get out on every sunny Winter day on the weekend and go for beautiful Winter walks.    We even open the car sunroof and just enjoy the feel of the sunny day.  Sometimes we will add Beach Boy music or summer themed songs and  sing along.  The Sun makes you feel alive again.  Walking not only keeps us healthy but mentally stable too.  We walk in any weather just dress appropriately for it. When you exercise your body releases endorphins which are a feel good hormone and helps keep you happy  in the Winter. If getting outside is impossible because of the cold or too much snow I have a portable day lamp for Seasonal Afftective  Disorder  which I pull out and we stand in front of for a short amount of time.  It helps elevate your mood naturally.  We put on good music or I  play an instrument while we stand there to help make time pass. We also  watch  only funny movies and sitcoms. A good belly roll heals everything. That has been documented over the years. Dramas do not put you in a higher vibration. Another thing we do is eat very healthy lots of veggies and fruits.  Stay away from junk food it is filled with preservatives, sugar, bad fats and GMO’s. I know from experience eating junk food does not elevate your mood. If you must have chocolate  look for a high  percentage cocoa find quality brand made from real ingredients  not chemicals.

Energy in the Park

2013-02-03 12.53.38

A few weeks ago “C” and I went for a walk at one of our favorite parks. It’s a beautiful park…one of the oldest in our city…it is heavily populated with trees, plus there are open spaces for families and friends to get together…there are walking paths, birds, squirrels and the occasional racoon…and there is beautiful view of the harbour which opens up to the ocean. Since “C” and I have been together it seems to be our go to place to connect with nature and ground ourselves. There’s a beautiful and soothing energy to the park. We find it a wonderful place to connect with the universe, connect with nature, connect with each other and heal.

On this particular day there was fresh snow on the ground. We had travelled our regular route and “C” decided to sit for a while and take in the view of the ocean. I decided to continue my walk for a few more minutes before joining “C”. As I retraced our walk I couldn’t help but notice our footprints in the snow. At first I thought it was amusing and would try silly things like placing my feet in the exact same steps…then I would alter my footsteps to change the existing patterns…but what started to happen was that the more I concentrated on our footsteps the more I could feel our recent energy. I could feel the emotions we were experiencing no more than an hour before…the more I connected to our earlier energy the further back I could connect with our older energy…to previous trips to the park…to a few years ago when we had meet for the first time in the park…I could feel the energy of our new found love at the time…I could even take it further back to the energy that we had left behind when we would visit the park before we even meet…even when we were children.

It wasn’t that that I was recalling memories…I could actually feel our energy swirling around my heart…reminding me that the energy we share with those we love is an amazing, beautiful, and powerful connection.
So try to tap into that energy….keep those connections…look within…look towards your heart…continue to grow, continue to love and continue to heal!

…and this is according to Mary.

The End is Near!!! For Winter that is!

Covered in ice

This week when we channelled Mary several messages came through, we thought this one was timely. As I closed my eyes and began to connect the first image that popped into my mind was that of the sun hidden behind the cloud of winter…soon after I saw the sun I could hear the chirping of birds…and the sun became warm and the light began to come through….

Mary wanted those of us who live in a wintery climate to hold tight…we are getting closer to spring…there will be less and less wintery weather…less snow…less cold…less clouds…less darkness. Soon there will be warmth from the sun…the days are getting longer…there will be green grass, and leaves in the trees. Focus on the positive…focus on new growth…focus on the warmth that is coming our way…focus on the energy that spring will bring…and the love that tends to shine a little more at that time of the year…take advantage of the healing that fresh air and sunshine will bring…visualize what is coming our way….yet at the same time continue to embrace the beauty we still find in nature today!
