Earth Goddess, you know who you are. You love to be in nature with bare feet, feel the sun on your face as you travel through the seasons of life. Spring brings you out to enjoy the spring flowers as you wander in the woods. Summer you dig your feet into the sand as you listen to the ocean waves as they have a secret message for you. Fall is when you gather your friends to harvest all that is good and sacred from the earth. And winter is the time to honor the divine feminine with in our body’s and renew life as it withers and dies. Mantra : I as a Earth Goddess honor , respect and give thanks to mother earth. I walk with bare feet and feel the deep connection I have with the Earth. I use a straw bag when I shop and do not litter her beautiful soil. I plant a beautiful garden in the spring and harvest it in fall. I use herbs and spices when I cook and bless my food with good health . I spend at least one hour everyday in a park, lake, beach or mountain to refresh myself and connect with the divine feminine with-in. I walk in peace , love and light with Gaia and the elementals. I love myself completely and honor all life forms here on Gaia. As an Earth Goddess we honor, respect and give thanks to mother earth, as we honor , respect and give thanks to our divine feminine. “Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature — the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.” ~Rachel Carson ( Charlotte Grimm) ..*
Our (Darrill and I) Christmas tradition is to get up early after Christmas eve with my children and head up to Big Bear to go skiing. I love the beautiful scenic drive up to Big Bear. It only takes about 1 1/2 hours to get to snow summit from our home, but the roads were closed from all the rain , so we had to go up the back way and it took about 2 1/2 hours. Never the less it was still a beautiful drive, and well worth it !
Simply beautiful white snow-covered mountains…
and beautiful flocked evergreen trees…
We all try to recreate this winter wonderland in our homes for Christmas, but it’s never quite as beautiful as natures creation.
Leo likes to ski, but he loves sitting down and playing in the snow.
and he loves to stick his finger in the snow and eat it.
He then said he was hungry and wanted a snack bar…and then he wanted another one. A little Al fresco dinning. Then he wanted me to just sit there in the snow with him.
Darrill finally came and decided to take him to the bunny slope, and I headed to the ski lifts, which were pretty empty. I love riding the ski lifts and just looking out at the beautiful snow covered moutains. Just me and natures finest.
The snow was a beautiful cold blue power, perfect for skiing. The temperature was a warm but brisk 45 degrees.
I skied untill the sun went down, and the sunset was breathtaking.
Santa was there, so Leo wanted to have our picture taken with him.
I was able to talk Darrill into coming back here to spend our New Years eve here skiing.
I have a superstition that how you spend your New Years eve is how your year will be. So hopefully our New Year will be eventful and in celebration of the beauty of nature…
Have a wonderful New Year !
