How Do You Let Your True Colors Shine

May 29 2017:

Fear ~~ Control ~~ Manipulation ~~ Conditional Love ~~ Smallness ~~ Victim These six have been my friends throughout this life. I unconsciously believed they were my protectors, my power, and what allowed me to live this life as I thought I wanted to experience it.

Today is day 12 of the 21 Day Dancing Freedom Challenge. This is a wonderful, inspiring, awakening, and alchemizing experience.

First four days were Earth, next four Water, and today we finished Fire … which included alchemy. Next up is Air and then Ether.

I know this way isn’t the way for everyone. Yet, I feel each person has their own unique style of releasing, connecting, surrendering, accepting, and allowing.

One lesson I continue to learn throughout this journey is to listen to internal nudges, hunches, and inspirations. I have ignored the dancing nudge for years …. Listen and KNOW there is a reason. xoxo

Here’s the Dancing Freedom facebook page. They close the challenge group two days after the challenge begins, yet, I’m sure you can sign up for the next one! xoxoxo https://www.facebook.com/DancingFreedom/

Imlay Elementary School and Thunder Mountain Monument

May 24 2017:

Adventure time! We’re headed to Imlay, Nevada today to visit a great group of students!!

Looking forward to spreading loving kindness and laughs with these beautiful humans!

Imlay Students with Biggest Little Book 4.13.17

Twelve students total from K-5. Cute little school!

Stopped at Thunder Mountain Monument before heading home. Incredibly interesting and funky, low, and creepy energy.

No one lives inside the building, yet there are a few camper trailers. Most likely those who just watch over the place. Here’s a link to read more about it … http://www.thundermountainmonument.com/…. Interesting. After reading about, I now know why it felt low energy … xoxo

We didn’t stay long. I felt rushed, anxious, nervous …. and we were the only people there!!! Thomas‘ stomach starting hurting and felt the same way I did.

It was a wild n crazy day! Drove to Imlay to visit the twelve students at Imlay Elementary School. Their teacher ordered Thomas’ book and they enjoyed it so much we decided to pay them a visit.

Imlay is a two hour drive east of Reno so we had fun joking and laughing on the way there. Once there we talked about Thomas’ book, my book, creating a book, Lillian’s upcoming book, a bit about 18p-, and I ended with a great treehouse meditation! Then Thomas got a tour of the cute little school by the one and only fifth grade student.

Next, we made the short five minute drive to Thunder Mountain Monument; which was pretty wild!

The drive home = not so fun. Rosey (our car) began to overheat so I had to keep turning the air conditioner off. Thankfully it was just in the 80’s and not scorching yet!

And, we nearly ran out of gas before reaching Fernley. We coasted to the gas station on fumes! Thankfully, Thomas has read Rosey’s manual like 500 times and he knew how many miles we could go past empty. (He reads the manual every time he’s in the car!)

So …… another wild n crazy (and some not so fun) adventure for most of Team TLC. I missed Team Member L, yet, I’m thankful she chose to stay behind as she would not have handled it well. xoxo

Stardust and Moonbeams by Camilla Downs

San Antonio Tree with Stardust and Moonbeams Poem 2016

Stardust and Moonbeams

At times when I look at you,
I’m instantly taken to the
Heart of knowing
That we are friends.
You and I, oh yes,
Friends for an eternity.
Friends, lovers, siblings,
Parents, cousins, and
Everything in between.
We are all of these
And stardust and
Moonbeams too. Oh yes.
An eternity, oh yes.

Grow With Me by Camilla Downs

Sun Through Trees Fall 2016 Enhanced

Grow With Me

Go, Hurry, Hurry
Go, Hurry, Hurry
This is the mantra
You help me to release.

Stop, Slow, Slow
Stop, Slow, Slow
This is the mantra
You share with me.

Be quiet. Be still.
Listen. Be in silence.
Communicate without words.
Communicate from the divine heart.

Watch me. Learn with me.
Lean on me.
Ask of me assistance.
Grow with me.
We have much to learn
from one another.

Let us be the
Connected ones
We came here to BE.
Let us share divine love
In our own unique ways.

Drift Into the Knowing by Camilla Downs

Footbridge and Clouds with Poem April 2017

Drift Into the Knowing

As I am in your presence
I feel the weight
Of this body drift
Into the clouds.
My soul melds with
All that we are,
And drifts into the knowing
Of all that is, ever was
And ever will be.
When I’m with you,
The illusion of time
And solidity are no more.
Oh. Glory be.
We are we. We are one.
We are an eternity of
One love.

Nature Invites You by Camilla Downs

**THROWBACK POST**

February 24 2016:

Nature’s Invitation –

Your grace beckons

The invisible touch of your embrace soothes the soul

The quiet of your peace welcomes all

You are the healer that encourages one to shed what no longer serves

Your beauty encourages renewal with every step in your glory
