FIRST SIGNS OF AUTUMN



Evening walks 


Old buildings full of history, beauty and life.



I love heather πŸ’—


Nothing like the moors to give you a wider perspective
of everything.



Have you noticed that Autumn is just around the corner?
Although I love all the seasons and what they bring into my days, my moods, my feelings, my meditations. ... but there is something about Autumn that makes me feel very good.
It's a mix of a nostalgic feelings on one side with a cozy and homey touch very nourishing and comfortable.
I love to observe Nature and its rhythms and I always try to apply them into my life.
Autumn brings you the opportunity of letting things go, as the trees let their leaves go in a smooth and calm flow, the more introspective mood that this season brings with the cooler and shorter days can help you to be more ready for practicing some meditation to see and feel what your soul has got to show you.

How do you feel with this new season that's about to start?
Are you ready for it or you are still reluctant to let Summer days go?

Let me know if you feel like it please, it's always a pleasure seeing you around this little place of mine 😊

Blessings to you all ☆
Love&Light ૐ

THINGS I AM GRATEFUL FOR

Do you always remember to be grateful?
It's not an easy thing to do as we can often easily slip into those things that are not the way we would like them to be, and then we tend to feed more the -"Oh poor me"- forgetting about all the little things that make our life worth it.
So today I am going to do a post about things I am thankful for so when I get into the "poor me" I can always come back here to remind myself that yes, there are plenty of things in my life to make me be grateful.

So thankful to have them as my family. .. my tribe 😍
I am grateful to be part of the beauty of this World 🌎


Thankful to my girl for choosing me as her mama and thus bursting my heart with unconditional love forever πŸ’•
Forever thankful to be able to call him my man, my lover, my friend. . πŸ’“


So thankful to the magic of the Sunset as it is food for my soul πŸ’›

Thanks to Nature where I can lose myself and find my Soul πŸ’š

Thanks to my body, the temple of my Soul and the one which allows me to be here and live my life fully πŸ’ͺπŸ’œ

Just by writing these things down I am already realizing how many other things are there for me to be grateful so, it will definitely be more Thankful/Grateful posts to come.
What about you?
Let me know if you want, please.

Lots of love to you all πŸ’—

Luisa xoxo

BACK AGAIN. ..


More than four months since the last time I was here 😱
How did that happened? no idea. ..
But I didn't forget about you at all.
It might happen that the long Summer days keeps you more outdoors and all them things that are part of the ritual of life, seems to fall into the Winter shadows becoming just a memory.
But today I am back and it feels good.
Our Summer hasn't been as we expected it to be but I am not gonna complain, I am just going to share a few bits of it with you and I am going to keep focus on dreaming what I want in my life and how I want it.

Resting in the middle of one of our walks 🌞


Although I don't really like the idea of animals in captivity I couldn't resist to take a pic of this beauty.😍


She said she was making nests for the birds πŸ’•


Some seaside time as well.πŸ’™


Every August I celebrate another cycle around the Sun πŸŽ‰


I love a good Sunset✨


I find them magic ✨


I attended this workshop with Brooke Medicine-Eagle, quite an interesting woman.


For some reason this picture of my daughter makes me feel a bit emotional as I see her growing strong and more independent every day, but I feel very proud at the same time 😍 


Avebury Stone circle


As a tree lover I think this is quite stunning, all them roots interconnected makes you feel and understand life itself. πŸ’š


They really are massive 😲


Well I hope you are enjoying your time whatever you are doing.
Remember to be aware of every single moment of your day. .. if you can πŸ˜‰

With love πŸ’œ

CREATIVITY

Hi there my lovely people!!
How are you doing?
Around here we are having a few days with such beautiful weather and it has been quite dry, sunny and warm for the beginning of April.

And you know what? I don't know if it's due to this nice weather or because I feel better in myself when the days are long and brighter, my creativity
is very strong these days so, I am crocheting quite a lot among other things but crochet is the most I am doing.

My beautiful Mandala πŸ’—
The same Mandala with some flowers 🌷
Nice way to recycle an old jar of honey πŸ‘
A case for my phone 😊

Are you a crafty person?
I have always liked being around yarn, I found it very pleasing the whole process: while you are making the item or garment and then the satisfaction of the end result.
And what about enjoying yourself between lots of different yarns, colours, textures. .. aaah quite an experience πŸ˜‰

And if it wasn't enough just the pleasure of crocheting or knitting adds its benefits and the whole thing becomes perfect.
~Reduces stress
~Eating disorder management
~Chronic pain management
~Improves memory 
~Positive impact on depression and anxiety 
~The list goes on and on
.....

You can read an interesting article

 And I don't know if you know about chakras
And how they regulate our energy?
What I do know is that any activity involving yarn, weave, knitting, crochet. .. it is directly connected to our second or sacral chakra.
It's the energetic centre which holds our creativity, it make sense now, isn't it?
So if you wanna know a bit more about the sacral chakra you can find more information 

And as this Sunday ends taking away another week, I wish you the best for the new week ahead πŸ’š

See you all soon 

Luisa xoxo

WHAT MARCH HAS BROUGHT

Hello my lovelies!
How are you?
Hope the end of March is leaving you with a feel of hope, creativity and a good desire for the new to come.

My March has been quite nice and although the weather could have been brighter, it was a better and worth it job to keep brighter myself πŸ˜‰








March around here brought a few different things, the end of the cardigan I was knitting for my girl, purple flowers with the new season which we have just started, rocking pools adventures. .. but the most special and important thing was Ilianna's 5th birthday. ..

Five years!!!!!!!
What???
Where did the time go? 😯
I just can't believe that she is already 5.
When I look at her i cannot see a trace of baby anymore, just a girl who is growing too fast, a beautiful, strong  girl with a strong personality as well, who so far has taught me a few life lessons which have made a positive impact in my life.
I like to observe her when she is not aware of it, I love to watch how she plays differents games just by using her imagination, how explores her body discovering new different ways to jump higher, run faster or speak louder. ..
It is a beautiful and important adventure for me to allow her to be free to discover the world at her pace and rhythm, so is for that that we have decided to home school her and thus she is free to find her way through life. We of course will respect any future decision she might take about this, but one thing is very important and clear for us, if she wants to go to school we will try and find a more respectful one that the mainstream system offers. At the moment she is very young so there is no need for rushing things, just enjoy and play a lot.

 I have never being the most patient person in the world but I often found myself slowing down my rhythm so I can allow her to deal with her emotions.
I am not the best mother of the world neither, but only the Great Spirit and the Goddess know how hard do I try every day to be the best for her.
And i fail, I certainly do and I cry as well but then I forgive myself, because through my bad moments and vulnerability I allow her to see what life is all about.

So yes, five years ago my body was opened up to welcome Earth side this beautiful soul who became my daughter making me feel the most grateful person in the world with such an honour. 

And the light of a beautiful Sunset leaves me with a deep feeling of gratitude for the tribe that together, we are creating.
Because we are far from perfect, but we try our best to be always nice, honest and kind to ourselves and others.

How has been your March so far?

See you all very soon 😘

Keep dreaming πŸ’œ

TREES

Hi lovelies!
How are you?
Do you love trees?





I do love them, I feel always comfortable when I am  around big, old trees. They are majestic creatures with a lot of wisdom.
I am in fact, a tree hugger and I love to sit close to them to read or just to feel their presence. 

Science has in fact confirmed that hugging trees can beneficially affect human health by altering vibrational frequency, read more

When I was little I found myself very often dreaming about living inside a tree, I used to imagine how I would decorate it and how warm and comfy it would be living in it.
I still sometimes dream about it πŸ˜‰


A few years back I read a book that really made an impact on me, it was obviously about trees and a woman who risked her life to defend their rights.

So yes, I do love trees and I need to have them around me as often as possible.
There isn't a time when I go for a walk and I don't find a tree to take a photo of, obviously now it's easier with our smart phones 😊
Hope you enjoy the photos I have shared here, the five at the beginning are all taken by me.

Let me know about how you feel when you are around our lovely friends 🌳

Have a lovely weekend!

See you soon

Luisa xoxo

IT'S THE END OF THE WINTER?

Hi lovely people!
Are you starting to feel the Spring in the air?
I am, and despite all these grey days that we are having around here,the increase of light in the day it's helping me to keep positive and hopeful. 

I love daffodils, they are a blessing and a hope for longer and warmer days 😊

And with the hope of the near Spring it comes with a lot of hope for our dreams to come true.
All those seeds that patiently and full of faith we planted during the cold and dark months of Winter are trying now  to find their way out, are we gonna be able to find our way too?

Kind of busy around here. ..

Exploring the rockpools πŸ˜„

The magic of a rainbow 🌈

Some view. .. πŸ’™

A treat for me. .. 😏


So we have been exploring, painting, discovering, creating. .. 
Having seaside time has done me good, the energy of the sea it's very good for removing negative energies and it gives you a great feeling of refreshing and clear perspective on everything, don't you think? and I am needing some of that so, very grateful for those moments close to the sea.
It is always a pleasure and although I miss the Mediterranean sea (it's where I was born) the sea here in the Uk does inspires me, maybe in a different way but it does makes me feel good and at the end of the day that is what matters, isn't it?

And one thing that I love it's yarn, so I am playing with the idea of a cardigan for myself. 
I am not an expert at all (trying to be one some day) 
But I do love yarn and needles and believe it or not I have been knitting and crocheting for years, I suppose I have never really believe in my ability to become an expert, but I am determined to believe in myself and my ability to become an expert on anything I enjoy doing so. .. 

I am following a pattern that comes with the last issue of Simply Crochet magazine but in case you could be interested in it, the pattern can be found on Ravelry 

What do you enjoy doing?
You can let me know in the comments below if you want, I will be more than happy to get to know a bit about you 😊


It is not how we live in the light
that enlightens us,
it is how we live in the dark.

~Rune Lazuli

So much love πŸ’—
Be very happy!!
