This space is for Peace and Healing

I am dedicating this post for Peace and Healing.

Whenever you come to this post be it today, tomorrow, a month from now or years, I ask you to pray with me. I ask for Peace and Healing for all those families who loss loved ones in the recent school shooting in Oregon. I ask for Peace and Healing for all who been have wounded or lost loved ones from gun violence. I ask that those who are in pain and wish to inflict violence on others be redirected safely. I ask that all of us remember that we can be a beacon of hope and light in our community. That we can make a difference. Each small act can add up to a wave of peace, love and healing.

As we are divinely made, let our actions and thoughts reflect that. May The Divine bless each and every one of us. Have a Blessed Monday.

October is here....

Happy October, my friends. It's a special month since I adore Halloween. My little's one birthday is this month too, so it makes it extra special. For four fridays starting next Friday, I am going to be doing a Magical Movie to watch for this month. Think more magic, less gore. I'm not really into blood and gore. Look out for Magical Friday Movie all this month. To whet your appetite, here is a sneak peak.

Romantic Vignette # 14: Merman

I walked along the shore nursing my broken heart when I found him. At first, I thought it was joke being played on me. It was me and him under a misty gray Friday sky. He was bleeding on his torso. What strength I had, I dragged him back to the cottage. I ran the bath, cleaned his wound and let him soak. It has been two days. 48 hours. Who I was then and now are different because of him. Kai.

Now, I know the world is more than what we are taught. There is a magical beauty that lies within our reality. Finally, I have found my way to it. To Kai. To myself.

Harvest Moon

Happy Harvest Moon, everyone. I know you have been hearing a lot about this Moon also being called the Blood Moon. It is also a lunar eclipse.

Full Moons can be as intense or fun as you wish it to be. It all depends on you and how the full moon makes you feel.

This Harvest Moon is special to me because its in my Moon sign of Aries. All my fellow fiery and adventurous Moon and sun babies in Aries this is our full moon. Of course, everyone can partake in this Harvest Moon.

Here is a simple exercise to do:
Remember, even if you can't see Lady Luna she is still up in the sky.

Lay down. Close your eyes. Visualize the Full Moon energy merging with your own personal energy. Then stay open to anything you hear, seel, feel, taste. I heard the message of letting go of all those fears locked inside of me. Then the warm voice and image of a good friend came to me.

For me, this visualization brought things that I obviously needed to know. As well, as a nice surprise too. You can do this visualization for five to ten minutes. Whatever you get, know that it is meant for you to know.

Remember the energy of the Full Moon lasts three days: day before, the day of, the next day. As always, I wish you a wonderful Harvest Full Moon.

Childhood Favorites

Happy Friday, my friends. Today is the birthday of two of my lifelong favorites since childhood. Happy Birthday to Mark Hamill and Christopher Reeve. Mark is 64. Chris would have been 63 today. Thank you both for being a constant source of inspiration to me then and now.

I had the good fortune to meet both of them. Here is my story about Chris here. I met Mark about 20 years ago, he was so sweet to me. It is a memory I will cherish always. Last Thursday, I sent Mark a tweet. He actually favorited it. Made my whole day.

Enough gushing. Have a great Friday. Please share with me your childhood or lifelong favorites.

Autumn Begins...

Happy Autumn, my friends. It is the time of sweaters, falling leaves, apples, pumpkins, longer nights and cooler weather.

How I do love this cozy scene up above. One day, I love to have a nice fireplace to sit by where I can dream, plan and read. Doesn't that sound beautiful?

This day is the time of equal day and equal night. It is a special time full of balance, beauty, and magic. Decorate with sunflowers, pumpkins, apples, grapes. Burn candles in the colors of falling leaves: orange, red, yellow and green. Also candles in black and white symbolizing the balance of night and day. Burn incense or ,my favorites, tarts in cinnammon, apple, pumpkin, caramel and any other favorite Autumn scents.

"Equal dark, equal light
Flow in Circle, deep insight
Blessed Be, Blessed Be
The transformation of energy!
So it flows, out it goes
Three-fold back it shall be
Blessed Be, Blessed Be
The transformation of energy!"
- Night An'Fey, Transformation of Energy

Here to end this post and celebrate this beautiful day is one of my favorites: Nat King Cole. Singing "Autumn Leaves."

Enjoy. Have a Happy First Day of Autumn, my friends.

Keep Dreaming

I have might of shared this story with you all before. I came up with my blog name in part because Swan was my last name at the time. Now it's my maiden name and my last name I use still for acting. The dreamers part came from that I'm a big dreamer. Always have been. I know I get that dreamy side from my mom. She loves to think up new dreams and make them happen. My mom is a big inspiration for me in doing that.

I was always the kind of kid who could finish a conversation with you then effortlessly slip into a daydream. ( Confession: I still do this now!) I love daydreams. They give me inspiration and guidance what to focus on next. Dreams: day or night are like inner angels whispering to do this or do that. I may dream of things that may take days to weeks to even years to manifest. Eventually they do.

When you drift of to your favorite dream, tune in and wonder. And reflect on this...

What are your favorite dreams and fantasies?
What are the common themes in your dreams?
Are there parts of your dream that can you bring into this reality?

Keep dreaming, my friends. Your dreams are waiting for you to bring them to our world.
