Gorgeous morning for a walk today. I have completely neglected this account for months now but hopefully with all the walking I’ll be back on track to show you more of these beautiful hills and surrounds.
Love Yourself Soirée
Can you imagine a community made up entirely of women who love life? When a woman loves life, she radiates joy, she lives life in her own rare style, she’s tough and resilient, yet feminine and refined. And, she’s so secure in who she is she’s not afraid to celebrate and inspire others! If adding more meaning, fun and passion to your life sounds like something you want, join us for another of The Homestead 1854’s, Love Yourself Soirée! Details

For those of you who don’t know about @forestcrystals let me start at the beginning.
A few years ago 3 hardworking tree planters came across a significant discovery on remote and rugged northern Vancouver island. What they found at first were a few quartz crystals with green phantoms in them. Since then they have been working diligently on their claim following clues that have led them to some amazing points and clusters with what seems to be actinolite inclusions giving them the deep forest green phantoms.
This week I had the privilege of visiting the claim myself and helping/playing with Andre. The land is wild. The forest on it’s 3rd generation....however after following clues from ancient volcanic activity to unearth crystals that are millions of years old I couldn’t help but think about how many times that land has completely regenerated itself. Death and rebirth and the intelligence and chaos of nature reorganizing molecules into form over and over again.
These 3 men use no machines to extract these crystals from very hard to reach places and their devotion is inspiring! If you want to know where your healing crystals come from this is a good place to start. I can testify that the hands that harvest them are doing so with love and reverence and the ancientness of the crystals goes far beyond the once old growth temperate rainforest that they come from. It’s as if the crystals wanted to be found by them and their mission is to share this sacred treasure with the rest of the world.
To obtain one of these crystals for your own collection please contact @forestcrystals or go to forestcrystals.com
Thank you so much Andre, Seth and Chris for letting me come visit. I am forever changed and eternally grateful!💜💎🌲⛏💜💎🌲⛏
Happy #nationalhorseday to all the ponies I have had the pleasure to own and work with. Pictured are the five horses I have owned. Every horse is different, and I have appreciated all they have taught me, as well as all the others I have worked with, ridden, and driven.
