What happens when...?

What happens when... my ghosts go missing?  Have you ever had a ghost or entity in your home that you know is there and then one day the energy of them is missing?  Well, that has happened to me a few times in the last few months. First, my protector, George went missing... I noticed that he hadn't been around but sometimes he doesn't really make his presence known so it wasn't so concerning.  That was it wasn't concerning until a friend posted on Facebook that she had a George come to her apologizing. Yup, he kind of disappeared from my house right before I went through something personal.  It was nice that he apologized but I really could've used the knowledge that he was still with me during that difficult time I was having.

About five to six weeks ago another of our "friendlies" (that's what we affectionately call the ghosts that are welcomed into our home) took a vacation.  This time though it was a BIG issue that he went on a vacation.  The ghost that went missing was the Union Soldier, Zachariah, that has been attached to my youngest son, M.  Like I said, this became a BIG issue as when he disappeared, M went back to a newborn schedule of being up four to six times in the middle of the night.  He didn't just wake up and go back to sleep, he woke me up every time that he was woke up. Needless to say this momma was running on very little sleep for a very long period of time!

Once I figured out that Zach was missing, I consulted with Earth, Water, and Spirit, amongst some of our other spiritual friends. We came to the conclusion that maybe, just maybe, M's problem was that Zach's energy was missing and he wasn't comfortable.  We decided that I should meditate and try to contact Zach's energy to see if I couldn't figure out what's up.  The hard part about that is being pregnant, I have a hard time meditating.  But, I tried my hardest to meditate and was successful. I asked the Divine to help guide Zach back to M and to bring peace back to my baby. Lo and behold, within a few days of me meditating, M was back to sleeping through the night again!

I am so thankful for the ghosts that we have in our home as they are very protective over all of us.  They are part of the family and their absence is noted quite heavily. I know one thing, I am so grateful that my children are sensitive to the paranormal and that they accept the abnormal. :-)

We enjoy hearing from you and welcome your thoughts and comments.  You can also find us on Facebook at The Sisters Elemental.

Elemental Meditation by ~*Spirit*~

Elemental Meditation by ~*Spirit*~
As with all things, you may have different correspondences. Do what works best for you, as it's your spirituality and your path.

Stability, food, wealth, crops, animals, home, mountains, strength, grounding, protecting, nature, death/rebirth, the body, fertility, birth, healing, empathy, strength, practical wisdom.

You're in a forest, standing with tall trees all around. The weather is exactly how you like it. Feel the breeze on your skin. Place your hands on the trunk of the tree in front of you. Close your eyes. Feel your arms, body and legs turn into limbs from the tree. Feel the roots going into the ground. What do you need from the element of Earth? Visualize it coming to fruition. Feel Earth's energy sweeping through your body and into the ground as you are connected to the tree.
Other visualizations: If you don't like the idea of turning your body into the tree, imagine it filling up with dirt, or leaves that are falling off the tree (or whatever else works for you).

Mind, mental and psychic work, intuition, knowledge, abstract thought, wind, breath, clouds, inspiration, hearing, herbal knowledge, plant growth, purification, freedom, revealing truth, finding lost things, instruction, telepathy, memory, learning the secrets of the dead, zen meditation, new beginnings, illuminations.

Now you are standing on a mountain, or possibly a high cliff. The wind is blowing fiercely  Your arms are raised above your head and you can feel the wind whipping between each finger. Your clothing is being blown against your body, off to the East. Think of your intentions for Air, and that those intentions are being blown into the East, the corresponding direction to it's element.

Energy, sexuality, passions, love, authority, transformation, purification, candle flames, sun, blood, healing, destruction, will, creativity, flame, heat, bonfires, hearth fires, protection, courage, strength, physical exercise, self-knowledge, loyalty, vision, illumination, power.

Standing in the middle of a ring of fire, the sky is black. The flames are shooting higher than you're standing and the heat is intense. As you're flowing with the dance of the flames you turn into one. Feel the heat and energy encompass you, and the intention of what you need Fire to do.

Emotions, feelings, love, courage, the unconscious mind, intuition, the womb, marriage, friendship,happiness, dreams, sleep, healing, menstruation, fertility, cleansing, purification, vision quests, self-healing, sorrow, reflection, psychic ability, oceans, rivers, lakes, rain, springs and wells.

Diving deep into the ocean, you feel the water ripple over every muscle of your body. You come upon a large rock sitting on the sea bed. Place both hands upon the rock and allow the water to wash over you in waves of the intention you need from Water. Feel the ocean's energy encompass you.
Alternative: You can sit/lay next to or into a creek bed. Place your hand in the water and feel the smooth pebbles and focus on the way the water moves between your fingers. If your whole body is in it, feel the water wash over you.

Encompasses everything. A final send off. Your soul.
You're standing in the middle of four pillars (each representative of the Elements). Your body turns into a violet flame as you feel purity and peace wash over you. Stay here for as long as you like, feeling each element and your true self. Know that what you've asked for, will happen.

Ramblings by ~*Spirit*~

So many different things and topics to think about and want to post about that today, it's just going to be a ramble of everything on my mind and what's going on in my life.

In regards to the homestead, we're tearing down the cabin. The hubby has already started removing items out of the cabin and tomorrow we will start taking it down, reusing the good wood and burning the rest. Then we'll start the slow process of rebuilding :)

I have my garden all planned out, perhaps a bit too big I'm thinking. I'm pretty sure the garden I have planned could feed everyone on my road, which is ok I guess. We want to put bushels of extra produce next to the road for friends to use. Pay it forward kind of thing... The amount of dirt we will need (the soil here is no bueno) is astronomical. We will be doing a raised garden bed and we considered wood and then cinder blocks, however that's all going to cost a pretty penny as well. Our new idea is to use the trees on our property. There are a few that need to come down and I will make the raised beds out of those. Will look fantastic.

I need to start looking around for herb seeds and the seeds for our garden. I don't want anything that's been previously GMO'd or whatnot, just pure organic seeds. I am stoked about my herb garden, cannot wait to get that going and to get my indoor herbs going once the cabin is finished. I hope it doesn't take forever to build....summer is my goal right now. We're pretty simplistic when it comes to living, so just one super large square home and I'll take care of the interior ;)

Since waiting on the cabin before thinking of having more kids is the responsible thing to do, I'm focusing on my health. I have dabbled in Paleo for the past year, however I went full paleo since 12/12/12. I did that on purpose, and at the same time... I didn't, it just kinda happened LOL! Almost a month in and I'm still going through a pretty good detox. Took years to poison the body, now it's taking time to readjust it to a healthy lifestyle. Hopefully the detoxing symptoms will be gone in another month at the most. Here's hoping...

Something that has been on my mind lately is the bracelet I received from 3 Strands. I love what it stands for, and when I got the bracelet, I also received the name of the lovely woman who made it, and who is a survivor of her past ♥ Check em out!
My bracelet looks like this, but without the tan color in it. Super sturdy, and beautiful and it just makes me happy that this company exists to help women and children!

That's enough ramblings from ~*Spirit*~ Till next time, Blessings!
