Dedicated to: Jenny & Michel Dupas, MoonGate Guesthouse, Whitemouth, MB
When you look around, one can truly see magic and beauty everywhere. We are surrounded by the divine’s gifts of nature, kindness, and creativity.
There is a place I can call home situated in the eastern regions of Manitoba. Carefully situated on the banks of the Whitemouth river, where a meandering, gentle flowing waterway, reminds you that life is simpler and easier if you allow yourself to be carried by the current of the river. The river is guarded by some ancient tree beings, protecting the sacred waters that give us life. Warriors of a different kind never tired of their quest.
My bald eagle clan greets me even if it’s for just a fleeting moment. We honour and respect each other by the acknowledgement of being present. Here, my daily life and responsibilities melt away like a shadow in the mists of a fog.
We are greeted each morning by the rising sun with spectacular skies of unimaginable colors. And our feathered friends show their excitement by singing and dancing in the branches; waiting to greet us for a new day. In the evening, when it is time to slow down the sun makes it’s way to the West sprinkling hues of pink, orange, yellow and purple. A vista that never gets tiring for me as it only inspires me.
The moon beckons me, a time to honour the divine feminine within me. A time to empower, create and set intentions. She envelopes me with her nurturing rays, carrying me through some of my darkest times. Here, in this place I call home, the moon’s energy is nothing short of miraculous; precious, gorgeous, outrageously immense. I always have a great sense of being blessed to be in her presence.
Within this space, if you look carefully, you will notice the little things that make this a special home. Sprinkled with inspirational quotes that require you to take note. Angels and fairies are neatly tucked in places you don’t expect giving you the sense that you are not alone, never alone! Reminding you that the divine is always within. Your guardian angels are by your side day and night, waiting for you to ask, ask for their help, ask for their guidance, ask for their grace, beauty, radiance, peace and love; always ready, always present. Open your heart to the possibilities of magic, magic of fairies. They wait to bring you joy and laughter as they flutter from plant to plant, and tree to tree.
I am honored that the creators of this space, guided by their light are my friends who open their hearts to greet, meet and love me no matter what. This is a special place I like to call home. A place I like to come when I need to reconnect with my higher self in order to truly find my way home, the oneness of our universe…LOVE.
