Moon rise splendour

Did you see the Supermoon last night? If not, you can catch it tonight!

A Supermoon means that the moon is at its closest point to the Earth during the lunar orbit, a term called perigree. It’s the biggest Supermoon to rise in almost 69 years, at approximately 18% larger than at its apogee, furthest point from the Earth.  In fact, the full moon won’t come this close to Earth again until Nov. 25, 2034.

For all whom need a little respite, from life’s difficulties and challenges, I’ve created this video and music. Relax in this beautiful forest and listen to the birds and trickling stream, and let your stress dissolve.  Blessings, Bridget 🙂 ❤

Ocean Womb

This is an old poem that I want to share with you!  It is the experience I had just after exchanging vows with my beloved. All of nature joined in to share our joy, and for one hour or so, I swam with the dolphins and heard the most beautiful music.

Sea Dance by Bridget Cameron

OCEAN WOMB

Looking out towards the ocean from the crest in the dune where I stand, I see an expanse of water that continues as far as the horizon. Where the water meets the sand, waves break, producing foaming froth, as the sea sparkles her brilliance at me. From the froth I visualise Botticelli’s, Birth of Venus as she rides on her shell towards me.

I walk a little further until I reach the beach and sit in quiet contemplation, marvelling many of nature’s secrets, until an urge draws me into the whispering sea…

I splash, I bathe, I run, I skip, I swirl, I swim, I am embraced. I feel like a child wrapped in the arm s of a loving Mother, nurtured and loved we unite as one. She sings to me, she clothes me, I am the seed within her liquid womb.

Small colourful fish swim with me, kissing my body ever so gently, and lead me to an oasis of dolphins dreaming. Two streams of dolphins unite to create future magic. I become part of their dreaming and recall the unfolding of nature’s celestial tunes within the cathedral of my heart. Such ecstasy and beauty fill me, as I ride the rippling diamond sea upon the dolphins’ breath.

The heavens open sprinkling the earth as waves caress my body and land me upon the shore. Standing upright a rainbow bridge joins a golden setting sun and a rising silvery moon.

THANK YOU!

The flame robin (Petroica phoenicea).

I went for a walk in a Eucalyptus forest and met up with a beautiful Flame Robin (often called, robin redbreast) when I was on Bruny Island, Tasmania. He sang, and posed and watched me intensely -communicating with heart- before heading off to munch on some insects. It was a real treat! 🙂

The Milky Way

When I was on Bruny Island( off the coast of South-Eastern Tasmania) I took the opportunity – with its low population and thus low light pollution, the dark of the moon and a black-out- to take a photo of the awesome Milky Way! I stood in awe of its majesty and beauty; it is so humbling, and so wonderful to be part of it.

“We are stardust, we are golden,

We’ve got to get ourselves,back to the garden.” Joni Mitchell

Rainbow Dream

A little hypnotic music video I put together, inspired by a passing rainbow cloud…:)

Rainbow Dream

Life’s a big picture,
look at all the pretty colours.
Life’s a big picture,
on the big screen.
Open your eyes up,
see the beauty in the moment.
Open your heart up,
create your best rainbow dreams.

Fantastic August 2016 Planetary Alignment

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Crescent Moon/Earthshine, Venus and Regulus in Leo 4th August 2016

I had a wonderful time photographing the moon, planets and stars, on evenings and nights that weren’t overcast or raining, as this was an exceptional month!

August had a fantastic line-up of all bright planets in the evening and at night. The next time all five bright planets line-up is October 2018.

As well as seeing all the bright planets, there were several beautiful encounters between the Moon and bright planets, the planets themselves and the planets and bright stars which made August exquisite.

Also on the the 27/28th August was a very close conjunction of Jupiter and Venus, the closest it will be until November 2065. Wow! Weren’t we lucky! 🙂

Interlude

Take a break to unwind to the calm within…

My new video Interlude, uses a a fractal animation I created in 1999, when all was new in this genre. Now I find the perfect complement to it, with my relaxing meditation tune, Interlude.  Sit right back and relax. Blessings to you, Bridget 🙂

 

Sun meditation

“A mind that is calm, without hesitation and anticipation is meditation.  Sri Sri

Much life exists on our planet because of the sun. Worshipping the sun has been a daily practice in many cultures, for thousands of years. Sun salutations is very auspicious and good for the body and the mind. The sages and preceptors have advised us to meditate during the morning and evening.

      And the cares, that infest the day,
Shall fold their tents, like the Arabs,
      And as silently steal away.”

Here’s a relaxing video and music I created, called NEW DAWN, and my poem GRACE.     Just sit back and relax and let the waves soothe you. 🙂

Taste the sweet nectar of life,
allow it to fill you to the brim.
And, let the joy in your heart,
walk the landscape of your soul,
in the light of wonder,
with grace to guide your way…

Peace Dove manifests a better world!

DOVE OF PEACE (c) 2004 Bridget Cameron

We are what we think and feel. Energy and information builds consciousness. Our beliefs, intentions and actions create our reality. We build our world as we go… We Increase our self-awareness by looking within, and connecting with our heart/emotions and our light!

Light = information/love

Darkness= lack of information/fear

By embracing our heart and the light within, we increase our vibration and consciousness, and take our power back. Then, we become the master of ourselves!

Take time out everyday to meditate and connect to your heart.  Don’t just accept things at face value, check to evaluate the validity of your beliefs and what you expose yourself to. If they don’t make much sense or no longer serve you, change them! You are in control of your own thoughts and reality!

If we all have amazing thoughts, feelings and actions then we will have an amazing world! Let’s aim for love and peace, and create the best reality we can together, for we are all ONE! Let’s choose LOVE!  🙂 ❤

Adapting to the Changing Fortunes of Time.

Adapting to the Changing Fortunes of Time

The key to most of the world’s problems can be resolved through overcoming ‘poverty/scarcity consciousness’ or greed. This needs to be addressed across all classes of people, and especially the very wealthy who often perpetuate ‘global atrocities’ by being greedy(wanting the lion’s share) and by being ‘power-hungry’. True power is being in control of oneself, it has nothing to do about controlling others or resources!

We need to address what is truly valuable, reorient our way of doing things and being, by embracing the attitude that there is enough for all, and by caring for ourselves and others. Then, we will want to share and care for the planet and greed will no longer bind us.

This can only happen through changing ourselves, by embracing our ‘hearts’, not being dictated by our egos ‘heads’, and by being free of fear! But, how do we do this?

Change must come from within. Only when we work on our ‘inner selves’ do we feel the effects of change.

The fallacy that money is standard for character, and that lasting happiness will result from wealth and position, must be dispelled. There is no amount of money in the world that will give a person true self-esteem. This can only be achieved by living in harmony, in balance with life.

True peace of mind can’t be bought. It can be earned by creating good in all areas of our lives. This of course has nothing to do with money.

Life is full of change and to expect things to stay the same is ludicrous. We must learn to flow with the changing fortunes of time. Why become hysterical, angry or depressed about the things that we cannot control?

People often resist change and often do not know how to change gracefully, for we are not educated to know.  Many instead become locked into the familiar, controlled like puppets by the media, government, education, religion and familial programs; forever looking outside of themselves for answers. Anything out of the ordinary seems intimidating and many react negatively to anything that does not fit the ‘status quo’ or societal and familial programs that run without question. Learn from experiences and question things, for how else can we truly know something?

Money is freedom if a person has developed the wisdom to be detached from it. Money is merely an exchange of energy, it is nothing more! A secure person can live with or without it, and that is true freedom.

The key is to be grateful for what we have! 🙂 Also,  to trust that our needs will be provided, even if this means that sometimes we have to go without. This however, should be accepted without any drama, as part of the ebb and flow of life.

Adaptability, depends on having a strong sense that the circumstances of life are presented for our growth. If a person attracts a situation, it is because they need to learn something. No matter how bad things appear to be, it will pass and time heals.

This simple exercise below is designed to help you if you are overwhelmed by financial worries. I have taken this from Mary T. Browne’s book, The power of Karma, pg 186 .

1. Ask yourself, “ how many hours a day do I spend thinking about money, and how many do I spend thinking about my spiritual development.?” Write down the answer. Ask ourself this question and record your answers, for the next seven days.

If at the end of a week you realise that your finances dominate your thinking, consume most of your time and energy and leave you exhausted, it’s time to adapt your focus. Obviously you are not spending enough time on things of the spirit. You may be wondering how this adaptation is achieved.

2. Adjust your thinking. Simply raise your consciousness to think about things that
promote balance. A few examples are friendship, love, nature, music and most important serving others.

3. Take a few minutes as many times during the day as you can to focus the mind on elements of spiritual beauty.

4. At the end of each day jot down a few words to let yourself know how you are
feeling.

If your intentions are true, in time you will be amazed to find that worry has been replaced by greater harmony. These treasures are not physical but spiritual. They can’t be affected by the fluctuations in financial markets. They are available to everyone at all times! Once this adjustment has taken place, you will fell a significant change in your disposition. Worry and ‘scarcity consciousness’ will have been replaced by a greater peace of mind, the gift of sharing and happiness 🙂 .

The pig that wanted to sway like the daisies.

Here’s a little fable and illustration I created for children :).

The pig that wanted to sway like the daisies by Bridget Cameron

A pig one day, came across a field of daisies that were waving in the wind. He enjoyed watching the way they swayed back and forth, back and forth and hoped that he could too, sway gently like them in the breeze.
He stood in the middle of the field and asked the wind to blow stronger for him, so that he may sway like the daisies. The wind heard his plea, and began to blow with gentle wisps. The pig could feel the wind against his body, but alas nothing happened.
He then, asked the wind to blow stronger. The wind blew with more might, and the pig felt the gusts of wind brushing against his body, yet found that he still stood still. Then, with his loudest voice he asked, “Please wind, blow with all your might!”
The wind took a deep breath and blew out an enormous tornado. The pig felt the wind come, and began to move at last, and move he did, for he was caught up in the funnel of wind and was swept away to another land. When he finally landed, he lay still in a field of gently swaying daisies.

Moral: Accept yourself for who and what you are. Accept others as they are.

Eastern Rosella beauty

I had a lovely visitor to my garden. He cheered my day! 🙂

A Spring walk up Anstey Hill and my meeting with some animal friends.

A red kangaroo ( Macropus rufus) checks me out!

I went for a walk yesterday and climbed to the top of Anstey Hill, in the Anstey Hill Recreation Park, which is situated on the North Eastern boundary of the Mount Lofty Ranges, otherwise known as the Adelaide Hills Face Zone. The Adelaide Hills are the result of the Eden/Burnside fault in which two sides have squeezed together, forcing up the land. Occasionally ‘earth tremors’  and even quakes, such as the 1954 quake are experienced in Adelaide, as a result of this fault.

Putting geology aside, the walk on this sunny Spring day, brought out myriad of insects, animals and birds. I saw a multitude of butterflies, parrots, wattle birds, wrens, tits and honey birds, and had a family of three red kangaroos spy on me and follow me for some time, up the rocky path. This photo is the juvenile of the group, being only half the size of his parents!

The Spring orchids were just emerging, with ‘blue fairies’ and ‘donkey orchids’ showing their upturned faces, and the scent of Spring flowers intoxicated my senses! 🙂

Hover Fly magic

Hoverfly, hoverfly, what do you taste?
You taste sweet nectar from the tangelo tree.
Drink it up, lap it up, gorge on it if you must,
And eat all the pollen before it turns to dust.
Your little adventure may be a feast to you,
Yet without it, they’d be no future for the tangelo tree or you.
