Getaway Weekend, Adventures & Pixie Dust

Copyright PadmaBella.com Photo by Padma Bella
Amazing weekend!! Full of many journeys, traveling ... On the drive back home Sunday, literally I started brainstorming how to format and write all this out. So it will be a summary and I will be going into more details about each of these topics at a later time this week. Unless of course something else gets channeled in which case we will have an intermission.

This weekend complete surprises (of all kinds) from start to finish. I had a plan set leave Friday for this weekend vacation, which of course got changed and I ended up leaving on Thursday afternoon. True getaway weekend. The original plan go to Wonder Con all weekend and cover how TV, film, comics, artists, and other mediums cover beings with clairvoyance gifts. I mapped out the entire weekend on panels I wished to go to so that I could share and write this for you all. Deviating a bit from the normal format I write in and topics I write about, but things evolve. As I have been inspired to cover something new.

Thursday begin the drive, get my badge, check in to the hotel and it's still early afternoon. Not many things to do as I really did not want to sit in the hotel on such a beautiful day. The only thing to do is of course walk a mile to Downtown Disney which turned into a nature walk and just spent time there.

I am living in my present moment. I enjoy my time here in this 
space. Reach the end of the mall. Getting hungry so my mind starts to think of OK lets find a place to eat some where that was passed.

I really wished to go into Disneyland (because it's sooo close) just beyond the gates but I simply thought this (not one peep came out of me). Bam poof! I get surprised yet again, first free Wonder Con tickets and then my wish was granted I got free admission to Disneyland. My nature walk continued. This is when the experience of the weekend began to feel surreal a complete dream which of course stayed much in a dream like state, of is this really happening? Did you experience any feelings like this? Still with the magical Eclipse Full Moon energy.

At some point it occurred to me I remembered earlier in the week I had a vision where I was at Disneyland being guided there and I received a message from my white angel. This was real time happening now! Not just a vision anymore. As I passed the spot that was in my vision, (not pictured here) it was the exact time of day from what I had seen prior and all I had to do was smile!! The day was perfect!!

The night nature walk back truly magical with all the stars and the trees twinkling! I really did not want to leave but knew I did have to as it was going to be a full weekend already. I truly enjoyed this walk as all trees should twinkle (as they do when you are open to see it).

Wonder Con Friday I had a full day of panels. If you are unaware of what panels are. Generally it is a room with seats for the public (some for press) and a stage with a table and row of chairs and a podium. Whatever theme the panel is the actors, writers, producers, etc sit and the moderator leads shows some previews, clips, whole episodes, etc of whatever the show/film/comic is and the moderator asks the panelists questions or discusses topics. At the end the audience lines up and can ask the panelists questions. Press does not get to ask questions (this is in another section) but they can take pictures etc.


Copyright PadmaBella.com Photo by Padma Bella
The shows I will be covering each in more detail at a later time this week: Salem, DC Comics, Teen Titans Go!, Star Crossed, DC Comics-Batman, Uncle Grandpa & Clarence, The Regular Show, Orphan Black, Sex Love & Superheros, How to Write your First Novel, and Cosplay 101. This of course does deviate or will deviate from my original topics of writing but will incorporate and weave in Awakenings and clairvoyance etc. Stay tuned!

Of course I had a full planned schedule for Saturday panels but the Universe wished me to take some time out from this experience for another experience. I went to a lodge experience. I had escaped to a completely foreign world of dress up, imagination and creativity in which I wished to share all this with you- I was further guided to head to nature to the most intimate retreat for my own self in which of course benefits all of you! =)

The middle as in how to write a story- I knew the end I then knew the beginning and the middle part
completely a surprise and it really did just come as it came with no expectations at all.

Lodge this time is where I found myself. Further than before. I saw many many animal guides on this journey. Truly I see it as being a journey from the beginning. For some reason back in February I saw Aries and the Aries influence on the moon would be a critical important time. I at the time of February was face straight in front of a brick wall, I could not go further in a direction I had thought. I had choices, freak out or move on and find a way to fly above this wall not being defeated. When I accepted it- is when this vision came to me this channeled message. As I have already shared this message with all of you in previous writes I am not going to repeat it. However, we get anxious or anticipate something we know is coming but this is rushing the process. Rushing the journey as the middle is really so so important too!

I knew this whole past week would be a theme of relationships. Even for my own, and for others as well. I wrote much about this if you do recall past writes. Lodge this theme continued to be of course. Signs are everywhere as the Universe is speaking, always but it's when you are ready and willing to hear it (in whatever form this comes). I laughed many times at the humor of the Universe on the drive to lodge. Again it's as I said you just know what speaks to you. On the drive there were these animal guides which came. I will give their general meanings I am an open channel and if something resonates with you it is meant for you.



Squirrel

"Gathering, Activity, Preparedness
The gathering power of Squirrel is a great gift.
It teaches us balance within the circle of gathering and giving out.
They remind us that in our quest for our goals, it is vital to make time for play and socializing.
Squirrel teaches us to conserve our energy for times of need.
If your totem is Squirrel or Squirrel has recently entered your life, lighten your load of things that are unnecessary - things that you have gathered in the past and may be cluttered in your life - thoughts, worries, and stresses.
Squirrel is also the totem of action.

Ask yourself are you too active, not active enough, afraid of enough, hung up on accumulating and collecting.
Squirrel people tend to be a little erratic - trying to do many things at once.
Take time to stop and listen to your inner self - and don't forget to play!"

Lizard on the road (that may or may not have lost it's tail or sacrificed itself).

"If Lizard has come passing through your life:

It's time to take do an internal audit. Are you being ruled by your ego or are you coming from your heart? Be aware - simply because the ego is the master of deception and you will often have to peel back many layers to get at the truth - and to discover what your heart is really telling you. Take the time to really focus on your personal dreams

If Lizard is your animal Totem:


When Lizard is one of your personal Animal Totems you have the power to regenerate that which is lost. You are prone to repeating some cycles simple because your energy loves re create your emotional attachments in some way. You are extremely good at facing your fears and moving between realities and 'otherworlds.'"

Bunny"
If the rabbit has hopped into your life as an animal totem, become very aware of your surroundings and the luck that may be abound! This furry creature is highly sensitive, tuning in to everything around her in order to know when danger or opportunities are around. This highly intuitive animal uses her gut to know when it is the right time to face her fear and take a leap. The totem teaches us to learn to be quiet and to listen carefully to what is going on in the environment so that we can accurately use our intuition as a guide.





Copyright PadmaBella.com Photo by Padma Bella

Rabbits are highly attuned to the Earth. They take their time getting to know their environment, and they especially like to feel safe in their surroundings. They have eyes that can see in every direction and ears that help them hear even the quietest sound. Their heart beats fast because they are constantly alert, busy and worrying about predators. They are associated with fear because of their timid nature and having to be constantly on guard. Rabbits have an inner voice that helps to protect them though, and this is the message that this curious animal can bring you. Their strength lies in their ability to become quiet and to listen carefully to what is going on in the environment so that they can accurately use their intuition as a guide.

By becoming quiet, their confident inner voice can help to guide them to where they need to be.

Messages or Medicine from Rabbit: If the rabbit has entered your life as a messenger, ask yourself what have you been busy worrying about? Has your mind been racing with fear? Have you been wondering what your purpose is or where you are supposed to be but have not been able to find your way? Now is the time to become very quiet. Learn to hush that constant mind chatter and listen to that inner voice. When you do, you will hear what your mission is and you will be guided to what steps to take. This inner guide will give you the confidence you need to take action.

Ask yourself if you have been taking opportunities that have been coming your way? Have you been hiding and waiting for those opportunities to come and perhaps letting meaningful experiences pass you by? Have your fears been keeping you stuck from moving forward? Rabbit reminds you to face your fears so that you can grow and evolve.

Culture: Rabbits are known for their fertility and are associated with the Celtic Goddess of Spring, Eostra and with Ostara (or Easter). Many cultures associate them with the moon, including Native American, Hindi and Chinese. Rabbits have long been a symbol of rebirth, sexuality and springtime. If the rabbit is appearing as a messenger to you right now, perhaps it's because you are trying to conceive (babies or new ideas), and trying to bring those forward into the world. If you allow your creativity to flow and tap into that and move quickly with opportunities, then you will surely see new life spring forward! 


Rabbit People are associated with:
Spontaneity
Intuition
Fertility
Luck
Abundance
Overcoming Fear
Anxiety
Quick-thinking
Reproduction
Taking chances


Rabbit or bunny people always tend to know where to go next. They are highly intuitive and sometimes people can mistake this for luck. Rabbits have come to be associated with luck, perhaps because people think that they overcome dangerous situations very easily, but it is a combination of the highly sensitive nature of the rabbit and her constant attention to her surroundings as well as her quick reaction time. She does not hesitate to take a leap of action. While this may not always work out to her advantage, it usually helps her survive. Rabbits remind us to use our gift of intuition to our advantage and not to hesitate when the opportunity strikes!"

White bread butterfly
"The meaning of the Butterfly symbol signifies transformation as the ugly caterpillar changes into the beautiful butterfly. The butterfly is also believed to be a messenger from the spirit world. The message the butterfly brings depends their color."

american-symbols/butterfly-symbol.htm



"White Color Meanings and Symbolism: The color white symbolizes mourning but might also mean peace and happiness. White was also the colour used to represent winter or snow. White was the color of peace when it was used as face paint."

Yellow Monarch Butterfly from my vision very truly magical as I was sitting listening to sharing in a circle this creature just flew straight through. It made me smile like hello I'm here! After the lodge experience I saw her appear again. Reminder from my first lodge experience and of course the vision of the three things in the box that was shown to me some months ago.









Rattle snake



"The snake animal meaning is powerfully connected to life force and primal energy. In many cultures, it is revered as a powerful totem representing the source of life. When the snake spirit animal appears in your life, it likely means that healing opportunities, change, important transitions, and increased energy are manifesting.


What is the meaning of the snake spirit animal?

When the snake shows up as your spirit animal, it generally means:

  • Snake spirit animals represent healing
  • Transformation, life changes
  • The spirit of the snake is connected to life force, primal energy
  • A meaning for the snake spirit animal is spiritual guidance
Copyright PadmaBella.com Photo by Padma Bella
The snake as a spirit animal can be to provide guidance about life changes and transitions, whether they are happening at the physical, emotional or spiritual level.
The snake can symbolize spiritual guidance. The presence of the snake in your life often means that you are in a period of transition and it points to ways promote your personal growth.
Snake could appear as a spirit animal when you are stepping into the unknown and need support to move forward. This animal is typically close to the ground and can remind you of staying grounded as you move through changes."
-http://www.spiritanimal.info/snake-spirit-animal/
"If Snake has slithered into your life…
Copyright PadmaBella.com Photo by Padma Bella
Transmutation is the key word here. The shedding of old skin and emotions and transforming them into something bigger and better. If Snake winds itself into your life know that change is in the wind and that you are at the center of it all as the catalyst. Make sure that your intentions are clear and that you have clear a clear sense of the direction that you need to strike out in. Snake is letting you know that these changes are safe and that there is no need to fear them.
You are also being reminded to stay connected to the self through observation of both the tiny vibrations in the earth, and the warmth and smells of the air and sky. When we learn to connect with our surroundings we can continue on the path of growth, and discard the trappings of the past.

If Snake is your Animal Spirit Totem…

People with snake as their totem are often finding that they are going through constant changes in their lives that they usually move through smoothly. They have a natural ability to balance energy and often Snake totem people are gifted healers.
You are very charming in social situations, and very good at holding people’s attention, there is something mysterious about about your gaze, your intensity, and your ability to sense what other’s are thinking or feeling. Tied in with this charm is a confidence and self assurance that many people find alluring. Snake people can slither in and out of conversation with ease and grace, and are often flexible and open minded."

Coyote

"Coyote spirit and not taking things seriously
If the coyote spirit animal crosses your way, you may be encouraged to not take things too seriously. Perhaps you need to lighten up or change your perspective about an issue or matter that has been on your mind for a while.
Call on the spirit of the coyote to support you in refreshing your perspective and lighten the weight of circumstances. Even if the coyote is often presented in many stories as a trickster and a spirit animal bringing complication to whoever crosses his path, it is a good reminder to keep things simple and open up to possibilities.

Coyote totem and teachings with a sense of humor

It’s sometimes hard to grasp the wisdom of the coyote without experiencing some unsettling or disruptive feelings. Here, serious pieces of wisdom and playfulness often go hand in hand and appearances may be deceiving. The wisdom of the coyote may appear through a joke or what shows as trickery.
There’s often wisdom in making fun of serious matters and letting go of certainties. Call on the coyote to reinvigorate an appreciation of life’s wisdom through diversity and richness. This animal totem provides his teaching with a good sense of humor.

The Coyote, the magic in life, and the unexpected

The coyote totem is symbolic of the magic in life and creation. In some traditional stories, it is associated with the dark side of witchcraft and is considered as a bad omen. The flipside of these negative associations is the spirit of resourcefulness and ability to survive.
When the coyote spirit animal shows up in your life, it might lead you to experience the unexpected more fully. Surprises await you. Pay attention, you may also find piece of wisdom in the most unexpected places. By affinity with the power of adaptability of the coyote, you may be called to be flexible and adjust to a situation that you did not anticipate."

Woodpecker
"If Woodpecker has come knocking…
It is time to really pay attention because opportunity is has come knocking along with it. It is signaling you that great changes are happening in your life and it is up to you to seize the moment. Whether it is the renewal of an old project, the finishing of a new project or simply a serendipitous meeting with someone in your life. Whatever way you perceive it know that the door is wide open for you right now and that success is your for the asking.

Woodpecker as your Totem…

You have the power of rhythm in your blood. You are tuned to the heartbeat of the Earth and the cycles that rule it. You have the ability to shake up the awareness of others as well as the ability to grab every ones attention with the simplest of words. You understand the power of your words and use them sparingly and precisely to get your point across. You are often the first to draw everyone’s attention to something that needs attending to."

Ants
"Patience, Order, Discipline
A person with an ant totem is active, community-minded who sees future needs. You are a planner but content to build your dreams slowly over time. You are content in knowing that everything will come to you in time.

The ant teaches you how to become the architect of your life. The greatest success comes with persistence. The ant shows you how to work with others. Ask yourself if you are making things harder than they need to be.


Are you being patient with your own and others' efforts? Using discipline, you can lay a foundation for success. The ant is the promise of success through effort."
-http://www.linsdomain.com/totems/pages/ant.htm





Fly
"Fly can also signify an exponentially growing source of abundance is available for you right now. Use your keen eyesight to see the way. Never give up.
Alternatively Fly could be reminding you that your persistence in reaching your goals will bare fruit sooner than later. Even if it means annoying others or being selfish for a while – you do have the ability to accomplish your goals.

If Fly is your Animal Totem;

You have the ability to multiply your endeavors, ventures and prosperity at enormous rates. You are quick to act and never miss an opportunity however remote when it presents itself. You always have the determination and strength to get what you need as you need it. Occasionally you need to remind yourself that it is important to balance self importance with humility. You have a knock for finding beauty and worth in uncommon places."

Red flower
"There's an indisputable energy to the color red - an energy that has the power to transform an otherwise unassuming flower into the essence of desire, strength, and passionate love. With beauty courage and heat, its symbolism, it's not surprise that a bouquet filled with rich, red blooms knows no restraint." - http://www.teleflora.com/flowercolors.asp

"There is good reason red roses are given to sweethearts. It's because red is symbolic of passion, love, and energy. Red runs through our bodies in raging rivers of blood. Red rushes to our cheeks when we feel the heat of our feelings. Red resonates with the root chakra and reminds us of our animal instincts. Indeed, red is the spark that kindles our most fervent flames of desire."

http://www.whats-your-sign.com/meaning-of-flower-colors.html

Of course the experience of lodge changed me. I am still in it, so I will not be writing much more on it (yet). Other than it's been a unifying experience. It's amazing how everything can look different when you transform.

Afterwards, I headed back to Wonder Con. Of course I still felt like I was in this dream state, like did all the events of the day really just happen? The sunset over the ocean was amazing! Such power in the sky this is where I needed to be. I started a book before I went to sleep. When I woke up I read some more and headed to another world! Everything is transforming. I've met so many amazing beings this weekend! 

I did create a crystal traveling pouch which being around thousands of people not a normal occurrence. very extremely helpful. If you wish to create one you may contact me for some guidance (if you are unsure what to pack with you).

The quote for the day which popped up for Sunday which can fit for any day of course. Is this one:




Copyright PadmaBella.com Photo by Padma Bella
As I experienced Sunday, it really has been all about creativity. To express and be free in exploring other worlds. I loved how in a room of hundreds of people we all visualized and meditated for a second and just let our imagination soar to tell a story in our mind. How different we each pictured our world to be like and how creative it can all turn out when we allow our self freedom to just flow with it. I will cover this in more detail also.













Copyright PadmaBella.com Photo by Padma Bella
Sunday everything felt so different. I was connecting with many creative people I met many talented beings. Writers, artists, etc ... each having their own gift and sharing it with me. I will be sharing this further on another article. One which is so sweet an artist drew a unique one of a kind sketch. The adventures of the cat, the bear and the unicorn. Thanks to Travis Hanson for the beautiful creation! Truly made my day. 

I will be writing more.
