It came to my attention this evening that it's World Lion Day & that made me realize it was 40 days ago today I was blessed to encounter a Mountain Lion. On the land that I'm living; at the river down the hill from the cabin. I had put bells around my ankles that day, feeling my hackles up; on the lookout for rattlesnakes. I get to the river, take a skinny dip, cross to the other side, resting on a sandy, mica sparkling beach. I spotted her over my left shoulder, coming out from the very trail I was just on only moments before. We grazed eyes. Something primal forced me to look away at the last second, the feeling of vulnerability overtaking the thrill to see her, being only a few bounds away. I look back just in time to see the entirety of her beautiful form.. sleek, strong, healthy. With a flicker flash of her incredibly magic tail, she disappeared; what seemed straight into the forest herself. Poof.
It was on this very day, just before this experience, the decision to change my creative name to Kelly Green Mountain occurred.. i felt vulnerable & a lil foolish to take on the strong name of Green Mountain, while feeling rather wimpy, with an almost consistent aching in my heart. Yet these Musings had been coming to me over & over the past year or so. Created through asking my Heart what it needed to feel safe, to heal & to keep growing.. the answer kept coming in the images of a sturdy, lush mountain. One that gives Life to nourishing & wild things, with caves of wonder & crystalline waters flowing. I had imagined many times that the protector of this space was the Mountain Lion. Her & I showing up that day, meeting at the river, was the most powerful sign I could have received. I honor that. I will continue to imagine & create this place of healing... praying that someday I may offer a Safe place for all Hearts to Land. What is your Heart saying.?. what kind of sanctuary do you envision.?. ~*~
Over the past few years, through the confusion & heartache, the brilliant & blissful, I've taken some solace in the perspective that 'I know nothing'.. Lately I've been feeling immense Gratitude for a Rock Solid Truth rising, one that brings tears every time. It is that I am HERE for The Earth Mama. I am here to be a Land Guardian. I Love every inch of our Mama & I know my 'job' in this life is to be clear in my Mind, Heart, Being so as to hear Her messages. I go where She guides. I do what is in alignment with Her. I will continue to do my best to listen to the whispering winds, the changing seasons & the people placed on my path. I could write endless things regarding this feeling of Love & Reverence.. This video is from the sanctuary She brought me to in Lyons CO; exactly where I prayed to be placed in the beginning of winter. She heard me!!! I feel Loved & Seen by Her. I Love & See Her! ~*~
Currently, She has guided me to southwest CO for a week through the invitation of a gracious mountain Mama! 0;) Loving the Land the whole way! Feeling Gratitude 😌🙏🌎❤️️💫 #imhereforthemama#landguardians#earthlovers#greenmountain#bluemountainroad#love#truth#gratitude
