GVK divinely conversing with Caroline Fairless part 2

It is always fun to be so involved in our conversation that we want to continue into the following week! Continuing on the path of how the Divine shows up, Caroline Fairless, brings us to learning from the Earth on how to “be” in a Divine way. We touched on how in the winter things seem to be “dead” but, in fact things are merely sleeping, resting, gestating and going within to become ready for the explosion of Spring.  Quiet time of winter gives us permission to be spend more time on the things we do not easily find time for in the warmer weather. And what does that have to do with the Divine? Well, in the past, I had trouble sitting in the stillness of the winter. I would often find myself feeling “blue” and restless. On one very, very quiet winter I was thinking that maybe my Higher Self and All That Is had forgotten about me. I moped around for a few months and then just gave in to the quiet. I meditated in the quiet, and at that time could not “hear” the Divine’s call. I continued my intense (always!!) conversations with All That Is. Still, I heard nothing. Sigh. Then on a whim, I bought some pussywillow branches. I threw them in water, also on a whim, because they are no longer living so they don’t need water. Then I put them in a corner. I walked by them for a month truly appreciating their soft beauty until one day I noticed what looked like white mold in the water around the branches. I thought ‘oh no! I’ve left them in the water too long’. So I pulled them out of the water and to my astonishment, saw that the white surrounding the branches were hundreds of roots!! A friend was visiting that day and she said to me, “Kristin, God is talking to you.” Yes, I said, I know. And I did. It was a powerful affirmation that All That Is, is ALWAYS with me, even if I think that I can not hear it. I ended up putting those pussywillow branches in a pot and she grew all summer, then in the fall, I placed her in my garden where she has grown into a young, strong beautiful tree. Any time I think that the Divine has forgotten about me, I go outside and look at that lovely tree and my heart fills with gratitude…

GVK gets Divine with Caroline Fairless ~ part 1

gvk-final-01Happy New Year Everyone!! We begin this 2014 with the oh so fabulous Caroline Fairless! I became so entranced with Caroline, that there are two parts to our conversation. We explore what is Divine Guidance to each of us. This topic is Profound and it is very different for everyone. Caroline brings to the forefront of this conversation that we, as humans, are not separate from our environment. We are not above, better than, or superior to our surroundings. We are a part of. Everything. What we do, what we say, and even what we feel reverberates out and effects not just our immediate surroundings, but, those vibrations echo out and can be felt around the whole Earth. When we are open to Divinity, the mundane or even the difficult becomes sacred. We find a different perspective. For me, that Divinity comes in most powerfully in Nature. I receive messages from the Earth and her creatures every day in many ways. When I opened up to the messages I began to find more peace in my life. I have studied what the Native Americans beliefs are regarding what Mother Earth has to say and find an utmost resonance there. After all, She is a living breathing entity. She is our life force and our sustenance. Do you have a story about Divine Guidance through nature? Share it with us!! To learn more about Caroline, click on the embedded links below…
