the gypsies' journey...

we all are gypsies of a sort wandering traveling through this life other lives space and time here there and yon on roads less traveled - following the path of the sun and the trail of the stars to worlds known and unknown from yesterday and today into tomorrow -

this is a written and visual journal of my own travels - imagined and/or real -
imagined and/or real - a STREAMOFCONSCIOUSNESS telling of my own personal thoughts feelings experiences - interspersed with words and images of others - with things defined by most as PARAnormal which - for me - all my life - have been PERFECTLYnormal -

SO come along with me and we'll dance among the stars under the sun and over the moon - we'll share our stories around the campfire - together -

A...WOMAN IN MOTION WITH HAIR AS DARK AS NIGHT HER EYES WERE LIKE THAT OF A CAT IN THE DARK... SHE WAS A GYPSYWOMAN... she danced round and round... from the fire her face was all aglow... she was dancing... dancing... waiting for the RISING SUN... loving caring relationships are like THE RISING SUN...we are nourished by their warmth...we are energized by their strength...we grow in their light...we find shelter and solace there...they are our sanctuary... born in the sign of the sun, i am a true LEO-love the sun and its hot orange red fire-passionate in and about everything i do-i believe in instant chemistry charisma love/lust at first sight-in the magic of the eyes and the beauty of the soul-in the instant recognition familiarity in meeting someone from a past life and in the knowledge that we might meet in a future life-i believe that we are each ageless and flawless-i believe in the beauty of the moment-the whisper of yesterday-the hope of tomorrow-the power of forgiveness for even ourselves-the absolute and total beauty of love---[credit to brian hyland and curtis mayfield]

to dream of totems...

deep in slumber, dreams unending,
wise old bear, patient, strong,
send me dreams of transformation -
grant me intuition along
with introspection of my life,
inner listening, no more strife -

Caution, Healing, Leadership

The power of the Bear totem
is the power of introspection.
The answers to all our questions
lie within us.
Each of us has the capacity to quiet the mind,
enter the silence and know
Just as the bear hibernates during the winter,
people with a Bear totem will be quieter
during the winter months.  But they
must awaken in the spring and seek
whatever opportunities are around them.
When you have a Bear totem,
you are being guided to a leadership role.
You must be fearless in defending your beliefs.
The Bear also encourages you to exercise
your abilities as a natural healer.
Bears are associated with trees which are natural antennas, linking the heavens and the Earth.
Bear also has links to the seven color rays of the Universal Light
as well as Lunar ties, linking the subconscious and the unconscious mind.
It is associated with the Goddess Artemis.

recently, i have had dreams of animals - mostly lions, but also a blue bear totem - in my dream, the blue bear appears visually in the form of the "totem" - in the dream of the blue bear, the bear is accompanied by a blue lion totem as they walk along the edge of a large body of water with high waves - in any event, trish and rob macgregor both have commented on my dream and rob was kind enough to provide the quote above [in red] to help me in determining the meaning of my dream - but i was so taken by the all of the blue bear's story that i have included it here for you -

I too have a Bear as a totem animal, and in winter I even had a brown thick furry (imitation) throw that I have on my bed, and I imagine this is my Bear protecting me...


oh, neat, gemel! wonderful to see you - so sorry i've been unable to make my rounds for so long - but the moving thing is not all it's cut out to be when one has been "saving stuff" for years - so i'm cleansing and clearing as i go on the unpacking! ;)

We've been visited almost nightly by coyotes. I must find out what that means. Surely nightly visits must mean something.

Interesting that it is a blue bear!


i've always loved coyotes - i remember hearing them when traveling/living in the SW when i was a kid - and i'm sure nightly visits count for something! lucky you! ;)
