Returning Home: Part V – Pendle Hill

get-attachment (18)

 Last Sunday August 10th I felt drawn to have a “Returning Home” experience so I drove to Pendle Hill. I definitely needed to PAUSE and regroup and what better place than here!

 I had a sumptuous meal of Thai fish and eggplant coconut curry. I can still taste the sweet and spicy sauce as I recall the meal. The picture above is a close approximation.The food here is grown, purchased and prepared with intention, care, and love. The energy was frenetic, most likely due to the approaching Super-Moon Full Moon. I was frazzled by the loud interactions around me and took a seat alone. No one joined me and that has never happened to me before. I told myself perhaps it was what I needed. Behind me I overheard a conversation about Woodstock. Then someone began discussing the film A Walk on the Moon. I was led to introduce myself to the table and share some of my experiences of that Summer as I did here.

 After lunch I went back to the barn to engage in meditation/worship in the worship room. When I closed my eyes I noticed bright flickering lights that were distracting and unusual. I was unable to get centered. Then I viewed the lovely painting exhibit on display and browsed the pamphlets. The amazing bookstore was closed, so I went outside and took some pictures before visiting the library. The limits of my cellphone camera prevented any of my larger landscapes from turning out well. But these close range shots do the trick!

While I did feel the buzz of Divine presence while wandering outside, my mind was scattered and I felt little peace. I know that many factors must work together for me to tap into the mystical openings. The full moon energies, while potent, were not cooperating and the portals were closed. At the library, I found books on Jung’s mandalas and how to transform one’s 9 to 5 existence. I also swirled the globe ( as I did recently in a dream) and landed on Oaxaca, Mexico. Oaxaca is a place I have felt very drawn to over the years.

It was quite hot when I returned to Owen’s Garden, one of my fave spots on the property. Perhaps that light captured on camera is the work of Spirit!

Approximately 9 years ago, I had a brief but compelling awakening on a Sunday at this very place. I wrote about the anniversary here.  I call places like this power placesThe Returning Home Series was created to highlight methods to facilitate mystical openings. Accessing a power place is one method that typically works for me. While this particular visit  to Pendle Hill was not especially memorable, I am so grateful that it continues to evolve and flourish while attracting people of all ages from all over the planet.

  5. Oh, that eggplant coconut curry makes my mouth water! Now there is a recipe that I would love to have because fish and eggplant and spices are among my favorite foods! On a more serious note, the greatest leap in my spiritual enlightenment happened at my former waterfront home with huge oak trees and lots of wildlife. So it seems my power points are in nature, water, and trees. I am greatly inspired in this kind of setting…I love to just soak up the energy!

  6. Love this post, and I totally love Thai food!!! ❤
    Having power places you can return to is such a wonderful practice isn't it??
    Everything seems to be really coming full circle for you, and I find it fascinating that on your full circle adventures, you found yourself looking at Jung's mandalas. Jung has said before that when we are in a time of great change or transition, we feel drawn to looking at and drawing mandalas, and I am just realizing that you posted that pink mandala I loved so much, not too long ago…..
    Blessed witnessing of your transformation, Linda.
    Peace,
    Amanda

    1. Hi Amanda,
      I can feel your enthusiasm through my screen 🙂
      I am drawn again to mandalas and may start doing some again, I may also post one I made years back at Pendle Hill ( if I can find it). I thought of you as I perused the Jung mandala book.

      When you read my post about my job (Thin ice) you may change your mind about my transformation, but happy to have you along on my travels anyway!

      ❤ Linda
