Happy New Year 2017!! As I drove across Colorado on New Year’s Eve, coming home to Ophir… memories of 2016 whirled through my head. It was a year of The Hermit (according to my dear intuitive friend Venus at www.missintuit.com), which for me meant spending much more time alone, committing much less time to others socially, while focusing on caring for Luna and myself through a difficult, emotionally- & physically-challenging time. Through it all I learned even more about myself, became more in tune with the Earth, and more aware of my path here in this lifetime, generating the momentum for Luna Energy Adventures.
The memory that most vividly replayed in my mind was of Luna’s last moments – she gifted me an experience that I will never forget… and I’m coming to realize is meant to be shared with others, despite how intimately close to my heart I hold it. I’ve never been with a being who transitioned from this life to another, so I don’t know others have this experience or if it’s normal, but I know it was extraordinary and powerful. During those last seconds, she opened her eyes and looked intently into my eyes, locking my gaze with hers. In her intense blue eyes, that over the years had gone from fierce & fiery to wise and peaceful, I watched her spirit gather in her pupils, lighting them up a bright green – the color of that flash of light that happens as the sun sets it’s last rays into an ocean sunset – and then in an instant, the light and her spirit flashed away – gone to another realm of which I believe in and yet only imagine… where she is an intangible but potent energy, always surrounding me and continuing to share her playfulness with the Earth, and yet also completely one with the Universe and all of space and time. I sensed it as a promise of our eternal connection, the energetic connection of oneness that we all share, and a promise that her “death” was only a transition from a body that was no longer functioning for her in this lifetime, into the eternal existence of spirit that could once again choose to be a playful puppy on Earth, running through the mountains and playing in the snow.
Even though the memory brings tears, it also brings smiles and joyful thoughts of awareness that there is so much more to this Universe and life than I can imagine in my little brain. I think of that bright light of her spirit daily, reminding myself of the magic and wonder of our existence… and of the possibilities that this magic unknown holds. It motivates me to get up, get outside, have fun with friends and family, and generate this new business… sharing and contributing to this world. As we transition into this new year of “The Magician” (also written about at www.missintuit.com), I wonder what possibilities exist for this year and the future beyond our wildest imaginations? What can we create together, if we all shine our individual lights brightly, contributing ourselves to the greater good, living every day in grateful appreciation and wondrous creation?
Luna set the example for me of how to live unabashedly, expressing herself to everyone, and fully experiencing every moment. I will soon begin sharing some of these gems of Luna wisdom… just for fun and for whatever possible contribution they may be to you.
May this year be full of light and love and joyous creation for all!!!
It’s been a very difficult transition time for me to not have Luna physically here… and the snow falling outside now makes me imagine her still outside enjoying her favorite time of year. She showed me on Sunday, October 23 (a week after her transition) that she can still find the snow, anytime, anyplace, and that she’s still always with me. I hiked with a friend to the top of the pass between Blue Lakes & Mt. Sneffels, and scattered a few tufts of her fur into the wind… strong winds took them all out into the basin below.
About 10 minutes later one of those tufts came flying back up, swirled above, and landed itself in the only patch of snow around, about 10 feet away. Took me from tears to laughter and joy at the evidence & memories of her fiesty spirit. She would find snow in the middle of summer at the top of a rocky pass, or bury herself in it in the middle of an Ophir snowstorm, as shown in these photos.
