Forgiveness and some time away was the theme personally for me for the last part of February which was following along with some of the guidance I shared earlier last month while family and a funeral has been the focus for the start of March.
Forgiveness came up not only in the cards for our New Moon Reading back in February but a Forgiveness Mirror Exercise (based on the writings of Louise Hay) was one of the current assignments I had due as part of my Crystal Healing Studies. There were a couple of people I chose to do this exercise for and surprisingly enough this past week I have witnessed the positive effects this activity has had on one relationship in particular. A loving conversation (long overdue) was indicating the other person had a new perspective and understanding of both their actions and mine and lead to a change in the way we were both relating towards one another which has given me a little hope for the future which was not present at all this time last year.
At the end of last month Rod and I headed to the hills (Gold Coast Hinterland) for a little holiday. We just love getting into the rain-forests of this area and the rain and not so great weather didn’t deter us. In fact it added to the atmosphere with the water ways in full flow.
We were able to get close to nature, with a huge amount of bird life surrounding our accommodation. Every morning and upon returning to our rooms we were greeted by the Ducks, Cockatoos and Ibis. It was my first time seeing the beautiful species of duck (the Plumed Whistling Duck) pictured above. The grounds where we were staying provided many wonderful gifts from mother nature including a huge haul of feathers.
On two of our days away we were honored to be able to spend time having sound and crystal healing sessions with the lovely Amanda and Danny at Heartsong Healing, Crystal, Sound and Energy Healing at Mt Tamborine. It’s hard to explain this to any one who hasn’t experienced energy healing or spiritual attunements, so I will just say it was amazing from what I experienced throughout the session to how I felt afterwards.
Another highlight of our week was the most delicious seafood lunch at the Three Little Pigs Restaurant. It would have to be one of the best meals I have ever had and the service was fabulous too. Let’s just say my arm didn’t need any twisting to try their desserts after tasting the delicious main. It’s probably the first time I have had dessert while dining out in a number of years.
A must of our holiday was to once again visit Chrissie at Crystal Mountain, one of our favorite Crystal Shops. We came home with more beautiful treasures which we know we were destined to own.
Exploring new places was part of our holidays too, a visit to the Hinze Dam which we pass by often on our way to other places, allowed us to discover a beautiful spot to stop for a good coffee all while taking in a beautiful view. I could have sat there all day savoring both the coffee and the beauty of our surrounds.
The sharing of energy with so many beautiful souls and with Mother Earth throughout the week was such a wonderful way to relax and recharge which I am so grateful for.
A catch up with one of my cousins had also been on the plans to conclude our holiday but sadly her dad passed away the night before and our catch up ended up being at his funeral yesterday in Brisbane instead.
This week family has been the main focus, spending time with my mother, father and sister most of the days this week. This included Rod and I taking my mother and sister to a few of our favorite places, Brony’s Studio at Woodburn (I wanted some more of her beautiful art) and then Chinaman’s Beach at Evans Head to get a little sand between the toes.
A few days later we had a trip and overnight stay in Brisbane together.
It took the sad occasion of my uncle’s passing and his funeral bringing all the extended family together to emphasize the need for us all to make a bigger effort to stay in touch and catch up more regularly. It also once again brought home that life is precious and time is short and the need to forgive and let those you love know that you do.
Love, Light and Blessings!
