If you have been outdoors all day taking in all the scenery of the surrounding area, then there is nothing nicer than having something sweet and tasty to look forward to in the evening when you return. ⠀
Enjoy our dark chocolate delice, one of our many tasty desserts available at The Inch Hotel.⠀
A different angle to the one we’re used to with the old abandoned boat just outside Fort William. Can you spot Rocky Robin? He/she wouldn’t leave us alone the whole time we were there, we didn’t have any food for him/her but was so timid! Was great company 😁 - thanks to @scottishsistersphotography for the inspiration to post some wildlife 👍🏽
One of Edinburgh's most famous sons, David Hume, is seated on the Royal Mile. His statue, designed by Alexander Stoddard is a source of amusement for tourists who like to rub his toe which hangs off the plinth.
There is ritual in the way I approach every single thing I do. From the drying of flowers for prayer, food and magick, to pots of morning tea and the way I lay my Guides exactly where they want to be. There is power in ritual. Familiarity. Comfort. Creativity. Touch points. I AM here.
What I know to be true is this, when we consciously incorporate ritual, when we pay attention to our way of living, our way of living and what we pay attention to changes.
We can move closer to peace. Ritual can be slow or quick, it can be pomp and ceremony or the strike of a match, it can be meditating in the same place each day. It can be the way your kids snuggle behind your legs when you're staring out a window. It's your tummy rumbling for nourishment. It is now.
What I know after teaching thousands of people over the last few years is you don't need to have a faith in something organised, but having faith in something helps. Being open to mystery, the unexplained, the magick makes for a life more akin to partnership and collaboration than survival.
We might be encouraged to be limitless, yes the spirit, but my body is limited and I find peace in this biological truth. I will die. Many decades from now I hope. There are a certain amount of breaths which are mine to savour. My body needs care, she has limits. I need sleep, food, water, clothing, warmth radical rest.
If I'm on a snow hike and I reach my limit before the end of the climb, I must stop otherwise I put myself and my climb team in danger. There is safety, honour, love in knowing your limit. There is grace in recognising we just might be here to experience limits of being spirit in a body with edges, ends, systems.
Ritual is in all things, nature, the old ways, ways emerging again. You know this, or you wouldn't be hear. My musings today - where will I direct my remaining breaths? What is truly deserving? What brings me closer to peace?
What will you do with your breathe my love? 🍯🍯🍯
Can't wait to show you this very special home I visited far into the woods of Scotland! I have written all about it and the person who built it and live there in the new winter issue of @faeriemagazine Enchanted Living 😀🍃💜 Truly a wondrous and magical place, the most authentic fairytale I've ever entered into 😍
