Another year in my life

 

 

Another Christmas is upon us and my life has changed within myself drastically.  I went back east to take care of my mother in April of this year and stayed for 8 months until spirit whispered it is time to go.   During my stay there I had many epiphanies that kept coming forth and still do today.  With some events, I felt an immediate weight lift from me and I felt joy and tremendous peace and freedom.  Then I knew I had to go back out west.    I feel amazing inside.  This is not constant but for the most part, I see things differently, I understand why people are who they are and I wish them well on their journey.  I also feel another spiritual birthing is at hand.

 

I returned back to the west coast and doors opened for me easily.  I live half way up a mountain with cougars deer and bears.  It is so dark up here that is is almost eerie.  It is beautiful and peaceful.  There is a stream running through the property.  There is a steep driveway going down to another plateau which has 50 blueberry plants and a huge garden.  It is also a hobby farm.

 

The last three days we have had no electricity as there were windstorms and some of the winds were measured at 147 MPH.  Needless to say, many trees got knocked down on power lines.  Our electricity was restored today.  We have a stream for water.  A wood stove for cooking on.  We had it cozy where some people had no heat and nothing to cook on.  There are winds starting up again so we might not have electricity again.  Yes, there is another wind storm on the horizon.  (  Posting this in case of no electricity again.)

 

I am still unsure what to do with my blog.  I still don’t have many words for poetry.  It seems they have vanished.  I am at an impasse of how to go about with restructuring my blog.  Time will tell

 

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and happy holidays and all the best for the New Year.

  1. Hi spiritkeeper,
    Glad you are doing well. Our niece is on Salt Spring Island and they’ve lost many beautiful old trees – it’ll take weeks to clean up the mess. It sounds like you’ve got everything you need, though. Good on you! Hope you have a lovely time over Christmas; it’s a busy time here with all these grandchildren. Xx

      • Hi again, I just looked at Noseybook and my niece has posted the following: BC Hydro has informed customers that power should be restored by noon on Christmas Day. I’m thinking many people will be having turkeys on the barbecue (?).

  2. Wow Joseph, what a cool post! From the internal freedom to you reconsidering your blog you’ve had a good year! One I’ve tried that helps if I get stuck with what to post is quotes. I simply pick someone I admire and there it is! So good see your post again! And I never knew you lived on the side of a mountain!

  3. Good morning Joseph and happy Christmas eve to you. About what to do with your blog… we have loved your poetry, but what we want the most… is to be able to “feel” that part of you that you are comfortable sharing with us… You do that so very well… with or without poetry. Keep writing. We’re listening.

    A most beautiful day to you… and give my love to the cougar, deer and bear.

    • Thank you Micheal for your encouragement. I am kind of still not knowing what to do with my wordpress site. I am lost. It seems the poetry has dried up. Maybe it I’d the grief that has lifted totally. I am sure I will get a whisper from spirit to direct me.

      I won’t get to close to the bears or cougar to say hello. Have not seen any but the seers are so small and so cute. Thank you again and have a pleasant holiday eve

  4. You’ve also been nursing your mother… receiving new insights like myself… our life’s are changing quicker now, but still patience is needed… enjoy your quiet time to observe and you’ll know soon enough where you’re going next. Your home sounds amazingly cozy and old fashioned with no power… keep warm and be filled with love dear Joseph ❤️ Happy Christmas Day x barbara x

  5. Thank you for the update, Joseph. So delighted for you. Electricity is awesome, but it is not everything 🙂 Looks like you are happy there in the mountains, and it is all that matters. When it is the time for a change, you will know, but for now it sounds like a fantastic place to stay, and any report from your cabin in the mountains would make a perfect blog post until you figure out what to do next. Merry Christmas! xx

  6. Ah, your mom is fortunate to have had you stay and care for her for so many months. I hope you found time for your own self-healing, as well. You’re a lovely soul, Joseph. I miss your poetry but can empathize. Take as long as you need. Come back to us when you feel you can. ❤️🎄🎁

      • That’s how I’ve been feeling about my poems for a year now. It’s been a struggle. Happiness is a tease. Just when you think you’ve caught it, you look and find your hand is empty. Lol. I’m being dramatic! Mostly. 😀 Cheers to you, my friend. Many thanks.

    • Thanks for the suggestions Andrew. I am a Gaia boy which means I am connected to nature and always have been. I have tried all of your suggestions and nothing is there. I think I am beginning to think is that all grief has lifted and I underwent major changes that I have healed and must reinvent myself. I will try your suggestions and see. I hope you had a great christmas.

  7. Hello Joseph, It was so good to read your words. Things open up to you and for you as the time is right and your energy invites it too. Moving to such a n amazing location must be so beneficial to the soul. your sensitivity requires the gentleness of nature just as your spirit needs its nurturing. I am moved by your words, you have such reverence for life and as always I am inspired by your view of life through all the hardships your beautiful spirit always shines. Hope your Christmas was good and many blessings for the New Year. Be it writing poetry or just writing I hope to read more from you in the coming year. I understand how words can just not come to us, be patient, they are there. Much love and peace to you my dear friend.

    • Thank you for your words from your angelic vibration. It is true that it is truly beautiful where I live and it is what I need. I will write my book on healing where I am at. Perhaps this is why I am not finding poetry words is that I need to put my words into my book. Christmas Eve I got a little drunk which I am a non drinker and I laughed quite a bit. My roommate thought I was a lot of phone. I won’t be repeating that for a while. I hope your Christmas was all that was to be expected. Hugs

      • the season brings the magic to our souls and in return we exude something quite mystical. I think you were drunk on life my friend, it is a good thing to let loose sometimes. A book on healing sounds wonderful, I encourage you to write it even if its just for yourself. your words are there, they just need some rest before they blossom and grow. when you said you laughed quite a bit my heart jumped for joy too. this Christmas brought to me people I never expected to see and with them came lots of healing, we talked and I feel my soul uplifted to meet the coming year with conviction and purpose. i pray this for you too my friend. many hugs and lots of love.

  8. I can understand that instant feeling of peace half way up a mountain surrounded by woodland and where nature roams freely and streams run crisscross finding their own levels..
    That is what I think many of us are doing right now.. ‘finding our own level of BE-ing’
    My poems I have not written any for a while now, preferring to create with my hands rather than my brain..
    I am certain Spirit will whisper the right words and give you ideas for your blog’s next venture, and it may well involve a hobby farm! who knows..
    While I know my own absence from Blogland is not that long, the pull to withdraw from it all together is a strong one..
    I am I think going to do some Spring Clearing on it.. before I perhaps return fully in the new year.. The high pitch buzz in my head when the WiFi which is all part of the new modem is urging me to switch it off more than it is on these days.. And I always follow my instincts..

    Such a shame so many trees were felled in the wind.. Such high winds must have been a huge storm..
    I hope winter is not so harsh and your power outages are not too common place..
    Stay warm, well and in peace dear Joseph..
    Sending Blessings and well wishes for 2019 and Beyond my friend.. 💚🙏💚

    • It is very peaceful in the mountains and my peace, joy and freedom was a result of events back east. 2 weeks of flu diminished my feelings and was rising to feeling amazing once again. Yesterday I had a disturbing dream which sat with me for a day and a half. I wasn’t feeling amazing then lol I feel Ok but I think the feeling will come back feeling amazing once again.
      As for my blog I swear Sue the grinch of words came and took them away. I thought of awakening people when I first started with wordpress but opted out for my poetry. One comment was to write more of myself so to speak. I don’t know. It can sit there for a while. I really don’t know if that whisper will come. It feels like something that has runned its course and there is not any anymore and it is time to move on.
      The high pitch noise of the modem would not be pleasant Yes we should follow our instinct.
      A lot of trees fell during the windstorm. There was over 100 power lines down and half or more of the city without power. They could not open the treatmemnt plant for water and they told the city no flushing of the toilets, to conserve the water as they did not know how long the treatment plant would be down. Just goes to show you that when the grids are down it would be chaos. Our power was out for 3 days and after the third day we couldn’t take showers so we went to the store and bought baby wipes. Did the trick. It also showed us how prepared we were not.
      Happy New Year to you and your husband and family. All the best to you, you deserve it.

      • Yes in a very short space of time things would be very chaotic if the grid was down for any length of time.. I remember a few back in the 90’s we had a bad snow storm, which took power lines down for three days, and things were similar.. Just go with the flow and see where it all takes you Joseph..
        I spent only an hour on my laptop yesterday and didn’t get around to even answering half of my comments.. Yours is the first on my list today..
        So I will see how far I get this afternoon..
        I have been walking in the mornings.. And I am certain that ‘amazing’ feeling will soon return, given the woods you are surrounded by.. A walk in the woods this morning soon restored my own energy.. 😀
        Wishing you a very Happy New Year, and hubby sends his regards.. 🙂 Many thanks my friend

      • Yes it would be chaotic for sure. They have bombs that could wipe out the grid. Bwithout power people would turn on each other and it would becsurvival of the fittest including cannabilism. I shudder to think what else. This is the new warfare.
