Mother Earth Prayer

Flowering Bush Vintage Lake April 2017

Thank you Great Spirit
for this beautiful Mother Earth.

Thank you for enlightening and awakening lessons disguised as discomfort and failure.

Thank you for the timing and opportunity to learn the depths of true love …. unconditional love.

Unconditional love for self so that I may unconditionally love my children.

That these children who are our greatest teachers and awakeners of our true selves know unconditional love and their worth.

That I may love all my brothers and sisters of this Earth as you love them.
And so it is.
2017, Lessons from Nature
(Prayer on Earth Day 2017)

Responding with Love by Camilla Downs

**THROWBACK POST**

September 15 2015:

Grateful to have had the opportunity to share a “respond with love and love is the answer” philosophy in a Huffington Post article. It served as a great reminder for me at the perfect moment. It seems that almost always the messages I share come about with perfect timing for me. My quote is the very last one – #6.

Lillian and Camilla August 2017 Date Day

August 14 2017:

Lillian and Camilla August 2017 Date Day – First, swimming! Then home for lunch. Next, dessert of a snicker doodle cookie for Lillian and vegan chocolate donut for me. Rounding out the dessert with an orange popsicle she’s been wanting.

Next up was reading at the park with this lovely view.

And, last stop was reading at the park with this lovely view. Then, throwing the frisbee. Ending with an amazing, soothing, and peaceful walk …. plus, munching on these beautiful grapes.

August 10 2017:

Sunset walk with Thomas. Gosh! Conversations with him simply blow my mind. A long walk and then a long sit on the lodge patio.

We talked about his thoughts on Disney movies, people who are paid to create viral videos, thoughts on why and what people find amusing in some of these videos, Sam Walton, Wal-Mart employee pay vs amount of money the company brings in weekly, obsessive compulsive tendencies, autism, cigarettes, cigars, pipes, electronic cigarettes, adult beverages, and I’m sure more that I’m leaving out. And this was only about an hour and a half!

He found a treasure during our walk and explained it to me. He also spotted an amazing heart for me to photograph. And, apparently a kiss from me is explosive! Wahooo!!! I choose happy …. xoxo

Sunset walk for all of Team TLC. Beautiful with a light breeze and fun conversation. Left a treasure for someone to discover and claim. I’ve had the “acceptance” rock for many years and it was time to pass it on.

Thomas and Lillian had fun with her braids in one of the pictures. We laughed a lot during this walk. And that felt good. I choose happy.

Book Review: The Untethered Soul

August 5 2017:

the untethered soul – the journey beyond yourself

Removing inner thorns and freedom, freedom, freedom ..

I read this book for the first time in March of this year. I’m now on about my 4th reading of it. 

What I found interesting is that the first time I read it, I took in a few great techniques and ideas and I thought that was it. Yet, I read MIchael Singer’s second book, The Surrender Experiment, next. That book blew me away. Incredibly powerful.

Then I came back and read this one again. Unbelievable! It was like I had never read it. The words and thoughts in it were much more powerful this second time around.

This is the perfect book for anyone who has decided to remove inner thorns, pain from the past, pain from childhood, remove blocks, stop the heart closing, and to stop repeating patterns over and over and over …. anyone who is ready to walk into their own darkness and shadows, feel the pain and finally let it go, and to truly and unconditionally love oneself … love all of oneself … the light and the darkness. xoxoxo
