Sunset walk at Washoe Lake tonight. Wow! There’s no beach. Just WOW!

As we were driving I mentioned how badly I wanted to take them to an ocean beach. What a surprise when we arrived! Wave after wave just like an ocean beach! It felt absolutely incredible.

Thank you SO much. And bring us more please.

The morning of July 4th brought the return of the pelicans and their wisdom to the little lake.

Good reminders on this Independence Day … Freedom from the ego, letting emotions float through, and the ability to return from extinction. Wonderful …. xoxo ….

Cormorant wisdom visited too! I just adore these creatures. They are so graceful. Cormorants brought wisdom of patience and use of the sun as a healing agent. xoxo

Took my morning walk in the forest this time. After dropping Thomas at camp, had some me time.

Oh my yummy! Plus, that’s some darn ice cold water! My feet were resisting after I initially plunged them into it.

This is the kind of walk that lets you know just how out of shape ones body has gotten. Lots of chipmunk wisdom reminding me that I have the ability to see the light and the shadows, the ability to carry spiritual nourishment with me, and I have mobility.

Incredibly grateful to Mother Nature. What a blessing. Spent a few minutes with the amazing tree near the end of the pictures. Mr. Tree gracefully soaked in and transmuted some unlovely feelings. Whew!!!

Now for a quick swim with Lillian before a busy busy rest of the day.

Walk With Me by Camilla Downs

Thomas and Camilla July 2016 Date Day 8.4.16 #2

Come,
Walk with me.

Do you not see,
that you have
tethered your self
to illusions.
That create the
suffering you experience.

The illusion that you
are little,
that you must
compete and attack
to survive.

An illusion that comes
not from your soul.
Your soul knows the truth.

When you feel bliss,
when you feel time
stand still,
When you are truly joyful,
When you know that all is well,
When you look into
the eyes of another
and see the universe.
When you give and receive
love to yourself,
your brothers and sisters,
animals and Mother Earth.

These are when you have
let illusion fall away
and experience the
Truth of Grandeur.

Practice, you must,
at letting go
of confusion, overwhelm,
and fear for these are
not of the Truth.

For only when you
release the tethered
cord of illusion
will you be set free.

Come,
Walk with Me
And come home
to the Truth.

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.

By the Shine of the Moon and Beautiful and Peaceful and Loving

May 3 2017:

Thomas and I had an extremely rough night last night with addressing one another’s thorns and triggers. This was after those life lessons …

Playing in the sprinklers by the shine of the moon last night with Thomas. Mother Nature is an incredible gift to us.

Much needed. So grateful to Mother Nature!
