A wood full of wonder

I had a plan for Tuesday morning. Not a grand plan, it has to be said. In fact, my ‘plan’ for the morning was nothing short of dull and uninspiring. I was going to do some housework; dusting, to be precise! That really wasn’t much of a plan, was it? I wasn’t feeling thrilled at the prospect (understandably, unless you’re into dusting)…so imagine my joy when my friend, Sue, texted and suggested a walk (seeing as the sun was shining). Wow! Let me tell you, I didn’t need asking twice! Not simply because it was an excuse to ditch the housework but because it had been far too long since I’d spent some quality time with my buddy.

Several texts later we had decided that a walk in the woods was needed…and, oh, what a good choice that was! As I hope you’ll see from the pics below, the woods were full of magic and wonder…and we returned to the car muddier than when we’d left it but nurtured and healed by the beauty that had surrounded us, seeped into our bones and lifted our spirits. The wind in the trees, the birdsong, and the abundance of ferns (some 6 feet high in places!) all added magic to our walk…so, to the beings of nature that blessed us that morning, we thank you ♡

A big hello and welcome to all who have stumbled across this blog. Do take a moment to read on a little…

I shall begin with something of a confession…

If I’m to be perfectly honest here, I’m not entirely sure where this blog is headed…if anywhere! I don’t have a plan, a script, or any kind of route mapped out in my head. All I do have is the knowledge that there is a lot within me that seeks connection, freedom and expression, so, I thought perhaps a blog might be a good place to start; a place to get everything out from within, so to speak. A place to air and share.

And so for a little background info…

Having (consciously) been exploring my spiritual path for the past 15 years or so, I now think I have a pretty good handle on that which makes me tick, along with a good understanding of how I now wish to lead my life. You see, reconnecting to, and honouring, the land, and the spirits of nature, is of great importance to me now, as is reconnecting to, and honouring, my own wild spirit. So, if I can now live in such a way that encompasses these things, maybe, with the help of this blog, I can inspire others to deepen their own connections, and, maybe, just maybe, we can help each other along…with a bit of advice here, a sharing of knowledge and understanding there… Who knows where we’ll end up? 

As I say, reconnection is the key theme here, as well as a lot in the way of appreciating and honouring the beauty that is all around. I’m the kind of gal who gets excited watching the birds on the feeders in our back garden…I ‘oooh’ and ‘aaaah’ at sunrises and sunsets…I converse with trees and standing stones…walk barefoot on the beach so that I can connect fully with the land and the spirit of the ocean. To me, everything is a ‘being’; everything has its own spirit, therefore is there (if willing) to be consciously connected with. The spirits of nature can teach us so much if we approach them with an open heart and ears prepared to listen.

If you think that’s crazy, then feel free to walk on by. If not, by all means stick around to see where this path of reconnection leads…but, for now, I’ll leave you with a favourite photo of mine, which I took at Lydford Gorge, in Devon, last summer (a faery place if ever there was one!)
