During last weekend, I had the opportunity to again remove myself for a few days; disconnected from technology. Where as a few weeks ago I held a space of gratitude and honoring of Orlie's passing; this weekend was about honoring the time that we connected. It was May 9th, 2014 when our paths came together and our energies began to merge. I had no idea at that time the journey that I was about to embark on. I knew that my life was changing; and I was preparing to tour full time and be on the road, but no idea that it would include having a cat accompany me in the process. So I wanted to take the time to honor that connection that opened. However, ironically, the night before I was supposed to leave town; I was hit with a Sinus issue that laid me flat in bed. I thought certainly I can sleep this off and be on the road; but 15 hours later, I found myself still shaky when I would stand. Needless to say, my heart was feeling very "broken" at not being able to follow through with heading into nature to play my singing bowl at some cave recesses in Hocking Hills, Ohio. I was supposed to head out on a Thursday so that I had all of Friday for the caves; but as of 6:30am Friday I was still struggling. I remember sending out a simple apology to Orlie - saying that my body just is not cooperating with getting me to the caves; and that I am having to surrender to what is happening. About 15-30 minutes later strength was beginning to flow through my body; and by 7:30 I was on the road, completely uncertain if I was being carried in this process or just taking unwise chances to do something that I needed to do. However, the further down the road I got the stronger my body got. Really a bit unusual since traveling can often leave me a bit on the flighty side or ungrounded. I managed to get to 3 cave recesses that day sharing my appreciation for a new chapter in our journey together and honoring the day that we met 3 years ago. The play of light in the gorges and the acoustics of the cave recesses were fantastic. Around 7pm Friday, I asked Orlie to gift me with a good, safe, and reasonably priced place to stay. She led me to a little set of cabins only 1-2 blocks from where I would start my day on Saturday. They hadn't officially opened; but I was met by a wonderful soul who gave me a wonderful rate. We ended up talking way into the night and sharing a wonderful meal. The hills were alive and full of beautiful magick under the Full Moon. The next day I journeyed on through 3 more locations. The second one that I went to I found a wonderful cave recess that I heard Orlie guide me to stop and play at. I am really not used to playing when others are around; but I heard, just play. So, I did. Hikers came in from both sides, walking down from the cliff tops; and as they approached would stop and stand in silence. I could feel Orlie right there with me, just like when we did trails together; and I could tell everyone else felt our joined presence too. Out of the corner of my eye I even saw some pictures being taken. So I closed my eyes, and stayed with the connection calling in our journey for this upcoming year while I played. When I felt it was time to stop, there was applause and people asking me about what I was playing, saying how beautiful it was; and how much it touched their heart. They said that they hoped I would be back to play in their hills some more and in other places too. The experience was powerful, divine, and magnificent. I realized as I was sitting there, and all this was happening that I was in the middle of a Deja Vu experience again. It reassured me that all was as it needed to be; and that I would be doing lots more playing when others were around, and that the grid of compassion that I am working on is having a positive effect in the world. I share this journey; because it is just the start of what is in store this year. It shows so many wonderful insights. We have to be willing to let go of our heart's desires sometimes in order to see the real miracles at work. When something is meant to be; you will be given all that you need to see things through. When you just do, in your true self of loving and compassionate consciousness, you can't help but touch the hearts of everyone around; and strangers will no longer be strangers. We need to do nothing but be in our true self in the moment; the miracles and blessings and magick unfolds before our eyes as we do that. Being in our wholeness opens a plethora of doors. I could probably go on and on with this. As I returned home, things have continued to unfold beautifully. While a brand new battery went out on me; it opened the time for me to construct a bed for my vehicle. For me, this is a beautiful sign that I will be doing a great more amount of traveling. While away honoring the time Orlie and I met; my personalized license plates came in with her name on it. Today, I sit in gratitude and joy for all that is unfolding. I sense she is with me every step of the way; and she seems so excited about what is yet to come. I trust what she is unfolding; she has shown me time and time again the beauty of doing this.
