Life Of Light

Flowing with the
Life of Light
is the Key
to Perfect Peace
even with
Desolation and death
encompassing all around.
~~~~~

This image and this poem portray how I was feeling a few days ago as I mourned the passing of Spring and Summer.  As tears fell I felt such utter sadness and emptiness that the Seasons I Loved so much have now passed.  A hard “manual shift of gears” mentally assisted me into the start of getting into the Flow of Loving Autumn.  And it is still a work in progress … All Seasons are meant for Celebration!  I promise to find my excitement again with my camera as I document this Season of Autumn.

No tricks with this image were employed.  As I was hiking in a shale creek bed a few months ago, the shaft of light that I saw on a tiny waterfall, stopped me in my tracks.  Rapid thoughts fired through my head one after the other, all debating whether or not to stop to set my equipment up that was slung in bags over both shoulders.  I knew I had only a window of a few minutes, if that, before the sun no longer was shining on these tiny waterfalls.

Before I could change my mind I immediately found a dry spot to put down my bags and as fast as I could I set my equipment up. In doing so I was figuring out from what position to shoot from, how high to set my tripod, and from what angle to capture these falls.  All this was accomplished in seconds.  By the time I was ready to shoot off the first frame, the sun was still shining on the tiny waterfalls.  As the seconds passed after I finally pressed the shutter my Heart pounded while my camera was processing the long shutter speed shot.

“Come on, come on!” I silently yelled.  The moment I heard the click of the shutter designating the shot was complete, I immediately began to get ready to get another shot off.  Turns out, the very first shot I took was the only one with the sun directly shining on the waterfalls.  You are looking it.

    1. Bless you for seeing with Eyes of Love, Erika. This image truly holds magic, and even without my words speaks volumes all by itself. The Drama that lay at my feet astounded me. And how honored I was to be able to capture it. Thank you, Mother!!! (((HUGS))) Amy ❤

      1. Bless you, Erika. You have encouraged me today in ways you just don’t know about. Walking the walk as I do in Life is at times downright difficult. Yet, when I am with Mother, it becomes the most natural and easy thing to do. ❤

  1. I’m so glad you captured this moment and the way you describe your ability to do so is almost like reading high action adventure! I’m sorry you are mourning the end of the summer and spring but each season brings joy and I’m sure you’ll be able to capture it like no one else can. What a terrific image Amy!

    1. I’m glad I that I took the chance to capture this exquisite moment, Marissa. I honestly didn’t know if I had enough time but I went for it. As for me feeling sad, I don’t anymore. Last evening was the beginning for me of falling in Love with Autumn. I again stepped into magic. That post will be coming on Sunday, I THINK. IF I can get the images edited, a post on Sunday with multiple pics will be up. The hard part for me is to choose just a few, because honestly, for real, almost every single picture I took is pure otherworldly magic. I was stunned when I saw the pics. The images dancing in my head of what I saw are making me feel floaty. LOL
      SO happy you enjoyed this image. She is a powerful one indeed!!! Dark, just like you LOVE. 😉 Love, Amy ❤

      1. Yes,, and so glad you explained what the image was because it was hard to decipher but that also led to the magic of the picture.
        I’ve no doubt that autumn will be an inspirational month for you. I’ve always thought it was the most beautiful. Can’t wait to see what you are able to create out of it.

      2. You had a hard time deciphering what the image is, Marissa? Are you looking at it from your phone? I’m a little puzzled. Is it too dark perhaps? I really worked on this image to bring to focus immediately the light in the waterfalls.
        And as far as Autumn goes … already I’ve walked into Magic. Wait till you see what I have. 🙂 ❤

      3. It’s an awesome picture, Amy and the fact I have to look at it more to decipher the images makes it that much more interesting. Honestly, I wouldn’t change a thing. At first glance it looked to me like a reflection of a puddle in the street but looking closer I see the depths of the waterfall.
        I have no doubt that you will continue to amaze me!

  2. Amazing shot Amy! Great job!

    And I so understanding your feelings about mourning Spring/Summer to go into Fall/Winter. I’ve dealt with that for many years. I’m learning over the past few, and even more so this year, though, to embrace and cherish the moment, and there is a lot to appreciate about Fall and Winter. Our weather the past few weeks has been some of the best I can recall in my life! Or maybe it is just my state of mind 🙂 Nevertheless, it is hard sometimes, and I totally get your feelings. Thanks for sharing, and wishing you joy and peace and cherished moments in ALL seasons. Hugs!

    1. Jodi, as of last evening, my Love for Autumn has come to Life. I was true to myself in mourning those Seasons I Love the most, yet now Mother is showing me aspects of Her that are blowing my mind. I have again stepped into Magic. I have one more post coming that embraces goodbyes and then from there I step into the Magic I have begun to experience and then to share with you. 🙂 OH! I cannot wait! I really am making an effort to get the images edited that I plan on putting on Petals. I will!! Our weather here too has been gorgeous. I was scrubbing yesterday and all I wanted was to be outside. So I decided to take a LONG walk, bringing my Samsung camera along, and that is when I stepped into Magic. I’m still flying high from the experience. Just wow!!! Have a wonderful day, my friend. Love, Amy ❤

    1. Ruth, between the time I mourned and the present time, I have again found my delight and excitement for Autumn. Last evening I literally walked into Magic. I’m still affected today! Almost every image I took was “on” which believe me does not happen often. Now for the challenge in picking out just a few for the post I plan on putting on Petals soon, probably this weekend. If I could I would put them all up. Every one holds something special, many being mirages. Yes, I am officially blown away by Mother once more. 🙂 (((HUGS))) Amy ❤

  3. Autumn is a beautiful season too. I know what you mean though, since the sun has resided behind the clouds I have been feeling sad too. The seasons can make all the difference to how we feel. Life seems to wither away during those winter months.

    Stunning image and words, my friend. Really breathtaking… And beautiful! 🙂

    1. I’m feeling better already, Amanda. I’ve again walked into Magic and if what I am seeing is anything to compare to what I will find this Fall, we all are in for some major GORGEOUS STUNNING images. I walked into MAGIC last evening to which I still am flying high now. Wait until you see what Mother showed me. I myself looked saw in person looked, still not believing my eyes much less what my editor is showing me. UN-BE-LIEV-ABLE! Should be posting on Sunday what I saw last evening. I say should because I never know with me. LOL
      And I thank you for your generous praise of this post. Mysterious, sensous, dark, sensational Gift I was given by Mother to share with you. How much better does it get then that? (((HUGS))) Amy ❤ ❤ ❤

I’ve said it many times before, but you are one of the most gifted people I know…it would be a crime not to share it with the world. *HUGS*

      2. That is my plan, Amanda, it really is. Once my phase of taking care of these special cats is over (and some day it will be) I will have huge holes in my Heart to fill from missing those I had Loved oh so very much. That will be the time I write my books, I branch out to make money from my Gifts, and to travel to those places I have always wanted to go to in order to be like a kid in a candy shop with my camera. For now, all I that I do is prepatory for the BIG times! As well, I LOVE LOVE LOVE what I do now, so it is no hardship on me. Oh, yes, my friend, I do have Dreams! And I am NOT letting them go. Your praise and encouragement of me bring tears to my eyes. I do not get that in “real life”. If anything, peeps don’t get me and most peeps who do not have anything they LOVE in their lives, won’t even acknowledge what I do because of their own emptiness inside. How sad. To ge the thank yous I do here at WP, the encouragement, the praise are like manna from Heaven. More then you know!! (((HUGS))) Amy ❤

    1. Bless you for stopping by, Delvi. That means so much to me. It is my pleasure to share with you the Gifts Mother presents me with. I love when I “stumble” upon magic, something totally unexpected that it leaves my jaw open in awe. Yep, I have more of those experiences coming. I had been mourning for the loss of spring and summer, but one evening shortly ago, I walked into MAGIC in such a way that just thinking upon what I saw, makes me “high”. If this is any indication of what Mother will be showing me this Autumn we all are in for a huge treat. May your day be Blessed, my friend!!! Love, Amy ❤

      1. Even as a “child”, Delvi, I asked questions and I seemed to think differently from those around me. I shook folks up and believe me, they did not treat me well because of it. I’ve learned that through diversity, one finds inner strength and respect that one had no idea even existed. I derive such JOY sharing my Heart with all who come to Petals. I admit sometimes I feel like shouting …. Is anyone getting any of this? And it does take a lot of discipline and effort to be here as I am consistently as well. I believe, my friend, that those of us who walk in Love and Peace will change this world! Like energy will attract and does attract more of the same. When I see breakthroughs and see results, when I literally walk into Magic here on earth as I did with this image, I really feel the utmost Gratitude and Awe for the Powerful Energy of “God” all around me and in me. It is so very evident to me that “God” shines through my work, both in word and in photo. LOVE truly is my Inspiration and shall continue to be so until my last breath.
        With all that said and done, good night, my friend. I heard my Molly coughing so ran downstairs to prepare Homeopathy for her and cupped and clapped her chest. In waiting for the Homeopathy to melt in water (oral syringe) I saw your comment and OH did I blabber on and on. LOL I have missed our conversations. Can you tell???
        Bless you for your incredibly powerful words you said to me. I am embracing those words and falling asleep on them. I am going to ask my Inner Guidance to what extent to these words mean? You I believe have carried a message for me. I am deeply Grateful to you!!! ❤ ❤ Love, Amy ❤ ❤

As for being blessed, that too, but I also know that we humans, are blessed, because we are the children that God created. Only, most of us don’t reognize it and walk towards much darkness sometimes.Your sharings are not for norhing…it’s like a misssion, and even if you touch only a few people, those people are touched by grace. Take care now and I’ll talk to you soon…I’ve missed our talks too…very much! Delvi.

    1. Do you believe that I am answering your comment the following day? *sighs* Just wow!!! At least I am answering! LOL As for this amazing shot, Kath, if this is any representation of what Mother has in store for me to share with all who come to Petals, in combination with the experience I had two evenings ago, we ALL are in for exceptional Magic! I am SO happy you enjoyed this! As for Fall, rumor has it here that the glorious colors are either going to be fast and then gone, or not at all. I see many trees just beginning to drop their leaves, without extravagant color. I’ve seen a few reds here and there, splatches, not much, so I’m trying to get those as much as I can just in case the bright display of color does not happen. We’ll see. Keep your fingers crossed it remains clear here over the weekend so I can get great images of the Super Moon! Have a great day, my friend. Love, Amy ❤

    1. *sighs* I’m finally getting to YOUR comment, Dan, the NEXT day. LOL *eyes spinning in head* Anyways ….
      I too find such excitement when I just happen to stumble upon something I did not see coming. This is what is so magical about Mother, who keeps on surprising me again and again. As for mourning, I’m done. 🙂 I don’t stay teary eyed for long, thank goodness. I stepped into MAGIC in a huge way two evenings ago and if all goes to plan (I carefully say that because even I don’t know from one moment to the next what will happen) the post that will show you what I saw and still am having trouble believing I saw, will be up on Sunday. That will be a mulitiple image post so I have to get myself to sit to really focus firstly, which images to pick (GROAN! Almost all are fantastic images which is a very rare occurrence!) and then I must edit each one to make sure they are perfect perfect perfect.
      Winter …. I AM buying snow shoes which I might have told you already. Darn it, I will I will I will fall in Love with winter this year. I’m falling in Love with Autumn. (smile)
      OK then! Now off to see your Thursday door post. Better late then never. Whew!!!! Have a great day, my friend. Love, Amy ❤

      1. Yes. Serious. Very. I am determined to LOVE winter this year even IF we get over 7 feet of snow. Now, Dan, IF that happens, you will hear me scream, unfortunately. For real. Do you remember that small business owner that got all his front windows smashed from a snow plow and who IF had gone down to the store with his wife at their usual time, would have been killed? OOOO, I have the goosebumps now. Anyways, I spoke to him yesterday and he is still talking about what happened, showing me the extent of how far and at what force that snow came hurtling in. Again I am covered in goosebumps. I sent him my post link last evening where I had added the story of what happened, to his facebook page, and he was so touched by all who commented.
        Anyways …. no more talk of snow. That will be here soon enough. LOL Have a wonderful day, my friend. ❤

And as far as Autumn goes, I have stepped into Magic which is about to be shown on Petals. This photographer has to get the images edited being that it is probably a 2 post series with about 12 images total. Due to the content of the images, there is a lot to take into consideration when they are edited. Much time is required yet the outcome will be SO SO worth it!!!
      Hope you are having a really great day, Tiny! I feel such Peace today as there seems to be a hush that has come over Mother. Awesome. And please keep your fingers crossed that the skies are clear here so I can document the Super Moon and Eclipse. (((HUGS))) Amy ❤
