  1. Dear Amy, phew, what a post! And what crazy times we’re living in. The darkness has been around us for so long it’s almost unfathomable. And many have been so blinded to the dark that now it seems even more magnified as the truth comes trickling out. No wonder you’re feeling the effects. My dear friend, you’re hardly “just a photographer”, you’re a warrior, a seer and a truth seeker and it’s what the world needs right now. Stay strong. The time will come when all is exposed, slowly but surely. In the meantime we stand in our power, holding hands, united across the miles. 🙏

    As for your photos, just wow! What a treat to be using your Canon Speedlite and capturing such magic. Have fun exploring all its capabilities, I think you’re going to have a ball mastering it. Sending you much love and big hugs xxx

    1. Aw, bless your heart, Miriam! I don’t recall ever getting a “phew what a post” before so I must have hit the nail on the head with this one! As for my comment about being a photographer, many do not see the “all of me” for to do so, they would have to take the blinders off of their eyes and look within. Doing the inward work for years, I know just how painful and difficult that process is. THANK YOU for seeing me!! It is people like you, Light Sister, who bring huge smiles to my face.

      My bio sister encouraged me yesterday saying a day is coming when your “abilities” will be accepted. With that said, I just keep on keeping on.

      And yes I am having fun with that Speedlite. How exciting to experiment to create in a way I haven’t before. I feel like a kid, fancy free! I am so grateful for the intelligence I have been given for some of these manuals are not easy to understand. I’ve got this!!! Sending you in return much love and huge hugs!!! I do love you, Miriam!! xoxoxo

      3. You can do a lot of really cool things with flash.

        I got a Macbook Pro 16″ M1 Max with 10 core processor, 16 Core gpu, 16 core neutral engine, 64 GB ram, and 2 TB SSD. Instead of going with a larger SSD, I purchased 24 TB Network Attached Storage (NAS drives) for $300 more than getting the 6 TB SSD, and $900 less than the 8 TB SSD. I had been thinking about getting the NAS drives for a long time, but never got around to it. NAS is really great. The NAS is cloud capable, but I only have it set for my local area network.

LOL I’ll just go with the “Macbook Pro 16″ Max with 10 core processor, 16 core gpu, 16 core neutral engine, 64 GB ram, and 2 TB SSD.” Even that has my eyeballs rolling. LOL Thank you for the help!!!

      5. Yes but you are a briliant woman, and once you look into it a little further it will all make sense.

        The M1 chips are integrated so the CPU (processor), GPU (video), Netral Engine (acceleration and artificial intelligence), and the RAM (memory) work efficiently together, take less power, and produce much less heat to do complex computing very fast. When you order an M1 you need to get the configuration you need, because you can’t add memory and change the video because it’s integrated.

        I have the highst configuration available for the Macbook Pro, which is the most expensive, also. However, there are no Intel laptops on the market that can be configured to come close to the M1 Max in performance. The top gaming laptops cost thousands more, and pale in performance. Software makers like Serif who make Affinity Photo, are having to benchmark the M1 Max against $20K to $50K desktop computers with $6k video cards, and the M1 Max performs better in many tasks like rendering video. So when people say “Apple cost too much compared to Intel” they have no clue of what they are talking about. There is now few consumer Intel computers that can be compared based on performance.

        I’ve been using a Mac Mini M1 at the office with 8x8x8 cores and 16 GB ram for a year now. It replaced a 2013 Mac Pro with 12 core dual Xeon processors, $3K video card and 64 GB ram that cost $10K in 2013. The Mac Mini M1 out performs the Mac Pro in everything and it only cost $1500.

        Laurie has a Macbook Air M1 (8x8x8 core, 16 GB ram and a 1 TB SSD). It’s doing very well for her.

      6. Aw, Tim! Thank you so much for the breakdown of what I now know I will be researching more of. Between getting involved in this and learning how to use my Speedlite properly, and creating, I will have more then enough to keep me entertained. My laptop I have is a MacBook Pro mosOS Sierra Retina 15″ , 2.2 GHz, Intel Core i7, mid 2015. I am unable to get the latest updates for PS with this laptop for its system is not powerful enough. It seems I am outdated. I never have used cloud so I will be needing assistance how to transfer all my data from the one I have now to the new one. I have external storage so all photos I will transfer to that before I buy a new laptop. Lots to understand here. Thank you for all the help. I will be coming back to these comments, making notes and then go to the Apple online store to peruse before I actually go to the physical store to buy.

      7. You can upgrade your 2015 Macbook Pro to the latest OS, which is Monterey. Check this link: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT212551

        Then you will be able to run the latest Adobe Creative Cloud without buying a new Macbook Pro. Keep in mind once you upgrade beyond High Siera, none of your 32-bit apps will work any longer. If you have MS Office Mac 2011, for example, you will have to get Microsft Office 365, which is the Windows version and I hate it compared to Mac Office 2011. Also, I don’t think Audacity has a 64-bit version, so Audacity won’t run on the newer Mac OS. If you upgrade to Monterey, which I would recommend (I’ve been using since it was introduced in September), I would export each track you have recorded in Audacity to .wav files before you upgrade so you can use them in another DAW (digital audio workstation).

        If you still decide to buy a new M1, you will probably need to order from Apple.com because the stores rarely have one configured with enough RAM and storage for photographers. Although I think the basic configuration of the Macbook Pro M1 Max would probably do also long as you have enough external storage.

        There is a Migration Assistent that helps with transferring data from an old Mac to a new Mac. If you want to transfer the configurations, data, and apps that will work from your old Macbook Pro to a new Macbook Pro, the easiest way is to have an external drive that can be used for Time Machine backup. After Time Machine does its first backup, it makes backups each hour the drive is connected to the Macbook Pro. When you have the new Macbook ready to transfer, run Time Machine on the old computer one last time so it has a current back. Connect the Time Machine drive to the new Macbook Pro and restore from Time Machine.

        I did not restore anything from my old Macbook Pro to my M1 Max. I want everything as clean and native M1 as possible. Adobe has not updated Creative Cloud to be M1 native, so it’s the only software I’m running that is having to use the Intel emulator. It takes a lot of time and care to set up a computer totally from scratch and make sure you get all your data and having to download and authenticate every app you own. But The M1 is so different from the Intel machines I want to keep it as free of Intel cooties as possible.

  3. Wow wonderful and such a great post, Amy. Darkness and Lightness sure are taking place in our world. Let’s see who will take over, till then let us keep faith in God and Mother. Beautiful capture of superb images. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2022 ahead.

    1. I am learning, WG, when I step back into creating and leaving the insanity behind me, my energy returns. We have fought for so long, and I don’t know about you but lately it has been extremely difficult. My Inner Voice told me to follow my camera and in so doing, I am gaining some semblance of energy again. I am doing all I can, and no longer will I be concerned about when this will happen or when that will be heard. No. I go on with my life, creating, living by example, and wearing my bright orange vest holding an American flag whenever I do out of my home. Return to Mother, WG. And stay there. These sleepers I will no longer even attempt to wake up. We both deserve to live life freely and that is exactly what I am doing, without banging my head on the brick wall. Sending you huge hugs!!!! Much Love to you!!! xo

  5. You have produced some superb macro photographs there, not least the very last with those tiny, tiny hairs on a leaf. I wonder how big they are, if you could measure them.
    Albert Camus, the French author said that the world was divided into light and dark and on the side of darkness were the Nazis and the mad Roman emperors such as Nero and Caligula, but on the side of light were people such as Jesus Christ, and, I suppose, nowadays, Gandhi and the Dalai Lama. We all have a choice to make, but you must be a very sad person indeed to take darkness over light, winter over summer, and ultimately, death over life.
    Happy New Year and be of Good Cheer. Hatred will not win. (Well, not on your watch, anyway, Amy !)

    1. Wow, John, a comment like this from you is indeed an honor. I am humbled and so grateful for the words you spoke to me. Thank you!

      The hairs on that leaf ….. amazing yes?

      Many people have chosen the dark over light today sadly all on the basis of fear which controls them. I have been adamant from the very start of all this madness I would not bend my knee to evil and have since then stood up with Integrity for Freedom and Truth’s sake. Hatred will NOT win, at least not on my watch just as you said it! When people see my smile and “feel” my energy most tend to soften towards me and let their fears go. NOT all, mind you. How anyone would choose fear over that of peace and Love is beyond me. That just does not compute!

      Happy New Year to you as well, dear friend. I have a “feeling” 2022 will be another year we will never forget but this time, in a GOOD way. xo

  6. Ah dear lady, these are amazing. If you hadn’t told me it was a porch light I would have been completely stumped, it was so different. And well done, thank you for sharing. And as for the darkness in this world, I look at those un-awakened and fear for them, knowing they have chosen such a difficult time. But then I see such as you who will smile and let them know that this light is down here too, a guide by just being you and your gift (they give plenty of smiles, inner and outer 😀 ❤️), and give them courage to take another step towards that inner love. Love and light to you, and the rest of the world too, as we all find that lit pathway home ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋

    1. Thank you, Mark!! I was amazed myself by the results and I plan on discovering what else I can do with that Speedlite. Exciting!!

      For almost 2 years I’ve attempted to get those around me to see through the lies, all mostly to no avail. I’ve stopped banging my head on the brick wall. What is coming they must deal with. Do not fear for them, dear friend. They have chosen to focus on the fears and lies instead of God and truth, and that is their Journey. I respect that. I’m just so grateful for my Inner Guidance and for the Sacred Protection I have around me at all times. I am learning by just being me I do affect those around me and lately, some are seeing me, shaking off the dust, and welcoming the Light. I’m also finding others who did not let go of their faith and integrity in 2020 and 2021 and OH the joy we feel when we meet!

      I know how difficult the Journey is to look inward and so my Compassion is on, for those who are enslaved to the lies will soon have so much crashing down around them. That is when those like us will be available IF they want to help them get through their rubble. My Light is always on and my heart always open. It is up to others to accept that.

      Sending you Love and wishing you a very Happy New Year. I have a “feeling” this year is going to contain a LOT for the betterment of the world yet it will be a wild ride. Tyranny is being exiled. (((HUGS)))!!! xo

They prove that there is light in the dark; you just have to be willing to look. May your aura continue to surround you with peace.

  9. Magnificent Nature Amy, capturing the delicate crystalline Nature of our transformation! A message to appreciate moments of our true nature, that protect us from the evil of the world. Yes that keep on coming, bullying us until their the last! We’ve got this though… my mum of 86 is a brave warrior, her horse is waiting to be mounted, her wings have grown, only now she has to mount and fly. But she is constantly being attacked for her faith! So we encourage each other, and say those prayers to keep on… stay on top… love has won it’s just taking a while to fully birth. Thankyou dear Amy for your tremendous bravery and light. We’ve got this…love on this beautiful new year of 2022. Barbara 💃🏻🧚‍♀️❤️🌈🙏

    1. Debbie, apologies for such a late reply. Yes I am experimenting and trying to update my techy equipment but in the process getting frazzled.

  11. Beautiful photo’s showing your skill and eye dear Amy..
    And I thank you for standing in your truth Amy.. So many do not understand the evil behind what is occurring in our world or the depth of its infiltration.
    Or the battles fought by those holding Light, as those tricksters sneak in to undermine and shake our energy in constant attacks from those who are unaware of the Dark controllers manoeuvres to shatter our Peace and Tranquillity.
    It takes Courage and grit to stand firm and fight them head on at their own game..
    So thank you Amy for sharing your story and your heart.. And Know that as we Trust our Inner Knowing and our higher guidance we are helping win this Spiritual battle..
    Because Love is far greater than Hate.. And Light will extinguish Darkness… And Truth will always find its way to the surface…
    Wishing you dear Amy a Bright Happy New Year.. May you keep following your heart and pick up your camera to record our New Earth’s Growth as Spring melts the snow, and we melt the hearts of Tyrants as we unify in joining together a New Earth World where all are Free.. ❤ 💚💜😘

    1. Sue, your words speaking so lovingly, brought hugs to my heart. And one can only understand what I write when that one too experiences the attacks of the dark. This is a part of who we are. Love always does win, you are so right. And until that day comes, we keep on shining our lights and holding the line refusing the dark any ground from that which we protect.

      Wishing you and your loved ones a very beautiful New Year ….. may 2022 hold so many treasures and bright days! I’ve asked the Universe permission to show with my camera New Earth as She births and if one has eyes to see with, my photographs of late have been different. I just keep following my heart as the whole of us who stand strong, as you say, melt the hearts of tyrants in unifying together with Mother as we learn how to live in a brave New World.

  12. Beautiful, ethereal photos, Amy. The perfect antidote to tyranny is gentleness. I’ve heard about what you are dealing with in NY. One of my coworkers went there for the holidays. She is one who follows the narrative, but even she was happy to come home. I’m so grateful that Michigan is no longer like that. You are in my thoughts, my courageous friend. May 2022 lead you further into freedom.💖

    1. Julie, I’ve been thinking of you and here you are. Yes NY has become a nightmare. As I witness what is unfolding around me, the shock, the reintroduced trauma to so many myself included, and the internal scream to run while I can, is paramount. I had to make some very difficult decisions so as to disassociate with certain places that once I loved going to. My sensitive nature just is unable to tolerate the intense toxicity, that and the Nazi tactics that are being employed. For someone who is following the narrative to be glad to return to Michigan, that in of itself speaks volumes. My Inner Guidance strongly told me to “follow my camera” and that is exactly what I am doing in order to keep sane in this boiling pot of insanity.

      As for my photography, thank you. I plan on playing more and experimenting more as well as traveling in my Sacred Forests where there I find Reality and Source. Please keep me in your heart and prayers, my friend, for I just will not bend to this crushing evil as I continue to stand behind Freedom’s Ring. Sending you much Love to you!! (((HUGS)))!! xoxoxo
