What if One Lets Go Like a Fall Leaf

by Natasha Botkin 

The fall is a wonderful reminder and opportunity to just let it go.  Take a brief moment to sit back and watch the leaves of a season that were once alive and thriving.  Then as the weather begins to cool, this leaf begins to altar its state of being.  It is present in the moment.  As the color changes to a vibrant color,  it sits there in all of its own individual glory; there is no competition with the other leaves.  It shines its beauty with the others.  Then, one day it gently pulls away from the branch and slowly and swiftly falls to its new state of being.  It gladly takes on another role in the cycle of life.  fall leaves

What if for a moment we were each like a fall leaf.  We altar our being for the present moment by moment.  There is no need to rush.  All the beauty of the leaves together shining for all to see.  Then some leaves need to depart ahead of others, again it is in its moment.

The tru nature of these words, shine where you are, you will land where you land and even if you must altar (as we all need to) and just allow the present state of being all that you can be in the moment.  Just ponder, yes, you too, will shine and show your tremendous colors of being.

Much Love, Much Light and Magical Blessings,

A New Approach to Mercury Retrograde

by Natasha Botkin 

Poor Mercury what did this dear planet ever do to humans.  Why is this planet getting so much flack.  This planet represents clear thinking, communication, truth and travel.  During a retrograde, it appears that Mercury is spinning backwards.

Some may say that this causes electronics to go haywire.  Some may agree that communication is difficult.

This can be viewed from a negative propensity.  However, one can turn this around and view this as a truly a beautiful sacred gift.  It is a gift.

Mercury is presenting one with a way to honor themselves.  How better to honor one’s self with a gift of truthful communication.  A gift of communicating and traveling to be your true authentic self.  For too long humans have created a vortex of negativity about Mercury, and yet Mercury presents a great gift.  When one truly turns inward and communicates with their heart and soul (higher self), one is truly able to communicate avidly with another.  

Thus Mercury presents ever so often the opportunity to let go of the distractions, go deep inside and release that which no longer should be able to rest within one’s self.  Only then can you be the true you.  

Thank you Mercury for helping us to cycle back and reflect the lessons of our spiral.  By granting us the ability to let go of a the lesson.

May you be able to change the angle of the camera lens and receive this wonderous gift.

It’s Simply a Matter of Time

by Natasha Botkin 

Unraveling take times.  It is not a rushed process.  There is no finish line.  Recently, during dream time, I found a tortoise entering along with a fox and as the observer went, well this could be quite interesting.

The angels have placed simultaneously a tortoise and a fox on my totem.  Wow, this is quite magical.  A tortoise is wise, quiet and magical in the most purest of ways.  Oogway is the tortoise that enters my realm from Kung Fu Panda.  He was wise, patient and just knew.  A fox is cunning, magical and in an instance is present and in a moment is poof gone, “sly like a fox.” However, a fox is cunning, magical and playful.  Ever stop and watch a fox when it is hunting, that’s the cunning state and then there is playful nature of a fox chasing a butterfly, and then resting, sleeping without a care. Tortoise Ocean

The reason I find this, well how shall I say manifesting, is sly patience of wisdom.  It is like Christmas, waiting for a package to open.  I am ancy; destiny it awaits and divine timing says, “patience dear one, more wisdom is to come.” This of course brings me to the circular pattern of anciness; I can’t wait, let’s get this party started.

The divine requesting more patience.  Now as an Aries I should be chomping at the bits, and I am.  Then again, I am patient and wise, pondering what is this great present that I will soon open.  Then I am reminded, a great present, in the present moment; “patience dear one.”

Star Christmas treeMy name means of born of Christmas and am image of me sitting near a Christmas tree lights a glowing and me a little girl laying on my stomach, kicking my legs, my hands placed under my chin holding my head….me saying, “is it time, oh please dear God and Angels, is it time…” The divine lovingly, “not yet dear, be patient” and so the cycle begins again.

Now a tortoise and a fox show in my totem. What, wait, when will it be time….Then an image of a tortoise swimming in the deep oceans so happy, playful, freely and this dances in my vision of my happiness.  I, too am, swimming in a deep ocean, traversing the spiritual needs of my heart and soul.  There are days when I seem to swim with grace and ease; then there are days when I think and that’s where the problems lie…..thinking is not getting me anywhere….step back….swim,, float, twist and turn, freely, playfully, joyfully swim in the presence–not looking backwards, nor forwards in the patient here and now. Playful fox

The tortoise a reminder of gentle, wise patience ;the fox a reminder to frolic and play; both simple; live simple.

That’s it a simple, joyful presence into the wise soul that I am.  After all it begins with I AM….

Peaceful Ascension

By Natasha Botkin 

Recently as I drove down the road watching commuters battling out for a space in the line of traffic, I sat back and thought why?  Why does one cram themselves into a line that does not go much further than one car length.  This brought me back to a conversation with my spiritual teacher.  Steer the course, do not ver to the left or right.  A song plays over the speakers, the lyrics of a change, a battle, of peace….

Which brought me back to a moment, a moment of an exchange with a wise woman.  A stranger really to me, all of my life, I have people stop and tell me their life stories.  My children often asking why would a stranger tell me that?  I have just accepted that people come to me to tell their stories.  Sometimes, they need a wise voice of innate wisdom to shine forward without judgement, without conviction, a person to listen, to help them release this.  Satinglass spiral

This lady looked at me and said, “Wow an ascended one, I’ve never met one in person before and you look nothing like I would think an ascended one should look like.”  I remember looking at her and wondering, but not saying anything, as I knew she had a story that she would share; and what a beautiful story it was.  It wasn’t the story; it was what she said, this was years ago; “ascended, ascension; isn’t for  the faint of heart and it will take much energy, love and light dear one, be prepared as it will come and you will easily glide up the spiral.” 

At the time, I was preparing for a major divorce and custody battle.  Little did I know that was much easier than ascension.  My spiritual teacher will gently guide me, and yet the human psyche at first wanted the ego to rage, bark and scream.  Almost like a two-year old not being allowed to have a cookie before dinner.  Yet, this is going to happen, go with grace and it will come with ease.  Some has been filled full of ease, and some would be easier to deal with a two-year old having a tantrum.

Come back to peace, love and light.  In steps the next wise woman, I am walking in the store and ran right into her.  She remarks, “Darlin, get your head out of the clouds.”  I look her, smile and say,“Ha clouds, that too easy, try galactic travel or what dimension did I float off to, traversing the mundane of today’s humanistic mess.”  She smiled and replies, “Ascension is not easy, especially in the modern ways.  You do not look like one, so many may not even realize. It’s not the appearance; it’s the light, the love that matters.” 

I am a special education, so I am a pro at what is called “wait time.”  Well, I am a pro with others, “wait time,”  me well in truth, I am not usually a slow learner, and  yet, may need an accelerated IEP to slow my horses, so to speak. (As my spiritual teacher often says, “Dear the Aries in you.”)   I look at her and wait, she smiles a big grin and says, “Dear one, you are doing much better than you give yourself credit for; however patience is necessary. The biggest patience that you need is your own transformation to ascension. you are almost across that bridge to a major level up, be patient.  Years ago, you were told that you do not look like an ascended one, in truth, you’re a more modern version. Your spiritual mentor has recently given you knowledge of the changes that will come.”  Then she smiles and says, “Be Kind, Rewind,” and instance is gone, I look around the aisle and do not see her.

Slowly, I approach the checkout; barely able to speak to anyone, and yet like moths to the light people dance around me.  I pay for my items and sit in my vehicle.  No thoughts, nothing, just sit and allow the wisdom that was also downloaded settle and absorb into my light.

The latest wise woman, was the same week as recent the crystal light activation January 2015, the full moon and just after the winter solstice.  It has taken me a bit to settle into the next step.  One moment, I am walking in the divine feminine goddess of innate wisdom that heralds the divine wisdom of love and light; and the next I am submerged in a hot bath trying to release the negative energies that seems to want to invade my aura.

And in truth, I do not wear flowy robes, probably never will. I am more of a mover. singer, dancer with the heart of a youth filled full of love and light. Hence the comment “Be Kind, Rewind.” Go back to my heart, my joy, my peaceful grace.  One thing that has come about with the crystal light activation is peace, harmony and joy.  We need much more of it.  If ya feel like dancing, dance; if you feel like singing, sing.  Life is to be lived and enjoyed with a beauty that is deep within us all.

Magical Blessings of love and light!

Grounding “Earthing” Meditation

by Natasha Botkin

When I began blogging, my oldest son suggested that I move a bit more modern into the vlogging social media world.  So, here I am.  I realize that during this journey, I will have to locate a decent video editing program.  The last one was awesome, that is until I uploaded and found their name throughout my video. One step at a time….

We just went through Winter Solstice where Mother Gaia was gently reminding us to slow down.  I hope that you were able to have a few moments to rest and relax during the holidays.

I know that I was able to walk along a favorite location of mine.  Water is an important element for me, and I just adore the seal who greets me or the one lopsided seagull who dive bombs the other water birds. IMAG0360

The angels have strongly reminded me that with Winter Solstice just passing and the new energies of 2015, grounding/earthing is an important element to incorporate within one’s busy schedule.  This is a way to connect with the energies of Mother Gaia, and she loves to share her energies.

This takes only a few moments out of the day.  Happy grounding/earthing!

‘Just Be’ Present

Just Be Present Meditation

By Natasha Botkin

The ‘Just Be’ Present Meditation arrived from my higher self, Amel.  The story has romantic moments and moments of sadness,  A week ago was pure bliss.  My twin flame appeared in my life, and we spent the most wonderous ‘Just Be’ moments enjoying the love that we hold for one another.  We parted and a few days passed.

My BeLoved texted me Marry Christmas, and I smiled with his fun-loving self.  Yet, as the day progressed, the effects of cloud nine settled; I found myself longing to return to his embrace. My ego relentless with why can’t I see him, I need to see him and wondering why his ego keeps him away.  When my dear higher self Amel, reminded me, ‘Just Be’ in the moment.

Moments later the ‘Just Be’ Present Meditation surfaced from my heart and soul.

May you to enjoy this meditation and ‘Just Be’ Present and in the moment.  Butterfly Lavender

Much love and light to you!
