360 Days of Gratitude (Day 47) City Girl Made for Country Livin

rainbowToday is and has been My Best Day Ever!!!

I am hanging at a friend’s place while he’s out of town. I’m sitting on the front porch as a rainstorm passes by. The sounds and smells are intoxicating and the show is even more exhilarating. There is actually natural color here. I love all the different shades of green! It is surprising the mixture of fragrances that dance with the rain and mixture together is absolutely inspiring to me in this moment.

My friend’s home is an old house built almost 100 years ago. I love that it wears its age. Beautiful workmanship that reminds me of an old craftsman style house. But she’s old and as beautiful as she is wears her age.

The character is appealing…at least to me! LOL

The land is mostly wild but there are some signs of civilization…in the place where there was a garden there are calla lilies growing wild. They are stunningly beautiful fuchsia and white and I love their smell. It makes me wonder when they were planted. No one has really lived in this place for 20 years. Well not until my friend moved in and I know he didn’t do it!

Heck there is a Wisteria that is over 10 feet tall and it has a trunk that twists and turns. It is a vortex unto itself. I love the smell and the purple & yellow flowers it wears them only once in a season. Wildflowers of every color are everywhere. Not just on this property but everywhere. It is a photographer’s dream.

Out here in the country it is all about the beauty in the simple things of life. In my imagination this is what Heaven is like and I am thrilled. I am in Heaven on Earth.

In the distance there is a pasture with a huge forest in the background. I watch in amazement as the deer come out of the forest one by one and feed on the sweet grass in the field. When I first came to this place I was all excited and clod hopping around trying to get my camera and get a shot, now we know each other. They don’t run away anymore…they check me out and then start eating again. It’s almost like their saying, “Oh it’s you!” LOL I have been accepted by the deer!!!! Yeah baby!

There is no way to describe how that feels!!! It makes me feel complete and connected. Awesome feeling!!! I love it here because I AM ONE WITH MOTHER EARTH & THE UNIVERSE.

On one side, She is so powerful and deadly carving the land with wind, lightening and driving rain and on the other hand she is an artist and creates so much love and abundance through the colors of the rainbow. It is a balance and I am blessed to recognize it and am grateful to do so.

There is a passion that exists out here in the country…a freedom if you will.

Even the most irritating things, like a rainy day are magic in the country. It is almost as if Mother Earth is playing her most brilliant concerto just for me.

How blessed are we all to live on this blue and green dot in the middle of the Universe. We are Divinely Blessed and Supremely Favored to live in paradise.

I love this place and this moment in my life to sit on the front porch in a rain storm and listen to life and the songs of Mother Earth. All is well and I drink it in like a cold drink on a hot sunny day. It quenches the thirst in my soul and I am ecstatic with the unfolding.

Sometimes I wish this moment could last forever, but all things in life must change and we must adapt to whatever the moment brings. 

I read this today…It is part of The Secret by Rhonda Byrne

There is a difference between feeling gratitude and appreciation for something and feeling attachment. Gratitude and appreciation are states of pure love and attachment contains fear of losing what you are attached too. When it comes to something you want in your life gratitude and appreciation attracts more of it into your life while attachment pushes it away.

So to remove the attachment, you must keep shifting your state. Shift your state until you come into alignment with the feeling of gratitude and appreciation. Once you have done this you will find that fear is no longer associated and you become a vibrational match to that which you desire.

Now I know I’m paraphrasing but I hope you get the picture!!! It is all about being in a state of love and appreciating what is in that moment. Release that which does not serve you. It’s blocking your flow chickadees!!!

Remember that when you go with the flow and loving accept all that is…You can manifest a rainbow in a storm too!!!

Living all countrified and stuff in my cute little rainbow vortex
