A New Jersey dusting of sugar on top of a pink dessert!! .

Shared from @misssnowitall via 📸 : @kelly.elko  Do you eat it, put your dolls in it, find your grandma in it or sell pink lemonade from the porch come summer? ​This picture perfect icing sugar home covered in snow in New Hersey just screams Disney or Stephen King.
​You decide. Muhahahahahaa.

Giveaway!🎁 I’m happy to be partnering with @ancestryca to gift one lucky follower a DNA kit this holiday season.
✨
I received my results last week & they have started so many interesting conversations with my family. Then, through building my family tree on Ancestry.ca I found out who my Great, Great, Great, Great Grandpa and Grandma are (yes, that’s FOUR greats!)
✨
A lot of my family from previous generations are from Scotland. This didn’t show up in my DNA, which makes this fun fact that much more interesting about how DNA gets passed down from generation to generation.
✨
You can use the kit yourself or give it away to a friend or family member this Christmas.
✨
To enter “like” this photo & “tag” a friend who values family as much as you. Feel free to tag away for more entries.
✨
This time of year is all about family, and I couldn’t think of a better time to learn more about mine. #Ancestry #AncestryDNA #Partner

You don’t have to categorize  #toxicpeople into #narcissist #abuser #sociopath #psychopaths #npd etc... If they neglect or disrespect you in any way shape or form, you need to prioritize yourself and leave. If you feel unsafe, you need to come up with a plan and secure a way out of this situation. The very fact that you’re reading this and have someone in mind as you read it, it’s enough confirmation that you need to leave, regardless of what they may be. It’s how they treat you that matters. 💖💖💖

I didnt really want to write anything else but I think I’ll explain a bit. Its two people on their knees facing eachother. I’ve includes some fertility symbols in this, their heads and hands create the rough shape of an apple, the suncross is a reference to fertility as well as feelings and its specifically around the stomach area, and the wheels horizontal line symbolizes intercourse. Their hands also create a symbol of a crown above the sun to symbolize importance of this moment. The sun and a crown on it also represent the outcome as a child as both value the child the most thus the crown and the sun is to symbolize a new life, a new story which rises and sets like the sun itself

"As I started my own family it became very important to me to help my own children know and love their ancestors like I did. Studies have shown that children have a greater resiliency and identity when they know the stories of their own past and were better able to cope with challenges."⁠

Is this the first fossil of an embryo?

New research on hundreds of fossils belonging to the creature Caveasphaera, which lived in China 609 million years ago, suggests that scientists have uncovered the embryonic remains of these early animals. If confirmed, this could redefine our understanding of our own evolutionary history. 📸: Yin Zongjun and Philip Donoghue

I type this in disbelief, although I’m sharing physical proof that it happened. Yep. This is real... and, folks, these are our brothers. .

A lot of you may know parts of my story. Some of you may know nothing at all. But here we are, right in the middle of a great change of narrative:
It took a lifetime, but we finally met our brothers and spent five glorious days getting to know each other- recognizing similar habits, hobbies, and characteristics. Brand new to each other but so comfortable. Blood runs deep, y’all. Overwhelmed with emotion, travel, and information- I’m still processing. I may be for a while. 
Good things happen. Beauty exists even in the midst of this crazy world and wreckage. Hold on to hope, love. It’s hard to deny God’s perfect timing. “And then there were four.”
.

Full story available but a big thank you to an old forum on @ancestry for showing me the breadcrumb that lead us from three different countries into this life-changing moment together.

This life Friends, it’s ALL about our Hearts. ✨💗✨ Navigating the chambers of our Hearts. Our passions, loves, pain, heartache, fear, longing, betrayal, courage..everything.

Stone layouts and elixirs aren’t just ‘new age’ bs. There is a looonnggg history of Materia Medica working with stones and crystals. The lineage I studied goes back to the Han Dynasty! And beyond that, it’s about my relationship and Your relationship with the stones. 
Stones get down to the deepest cellular layer. Our DNA. Epigenetics. Experiences that we inherited from our lineage. Experiences that became lodged within us because we didn’t know how to handle and process. Stone treatments will help unhinge these to be cleared away.  Coming back to our original state.

We are complex Beings. So are the stones. And their primary function is to help us Spiritually. 
I offer private and group sessions if you’re feeling drawn. I combine my vibrational remedies and often cacao. These friends compliment each other so well! Supporting you on All levels. 🌀

Grateful for this work and healing! ✨💗✨ Photo credit @artemisiacollagewithnature

Something a little different because I’m trying new things, so bear with me while I experiment for a bit (prepare for chaos, by the way) and rush out of bed to catch the last bit of light to do so. Seriously, I need a coffee. Going to get me a coffee.. and brush my hair. ☕️

MINDSET TALK 💬☕️: Ancestral Messages 🦉⁣⁣
⁣⁣
This week’s Mindset Talks 💬☕️ are currently now available for view on my website. This week was all about our connection to our ancestors and healing the ancestral karma that has been holding us back our entire lives. The ancestors provided their message channeled through me to guide us on our path of healing especially come the Christmas season when it’s all about family gatherings. We want to create the most harmonious and joyful Christmas season with all of those around us. In order to achieve that we need to go within and heal any unresolved issues that come up to trigger us. Rather than run away from them, the Universe is asking you to face and endure them for the heavy emotions shall soon be over to welcome you with a beautiful rainbow on the other side. A new day is a new beginning. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Watch Session 1 and 2 for detailed guidance. 🎥⁣⁣

⁣⁣
These two videos are similar to how two consecutive coaching sessions would be experienced. They build off the previous one delving deeper into the core issue. ⁣⁣

#genealogy ... A little note-to-self for today: it’s not that there aren’t some kind of immigration records out there. It’s just that I haven’t figured out the right place to look yet. #wherearetheythough

My Gramma was always creating. She was a carpenter, a gardener, a homemaker, a cook, a farmer, a musician, a seamstress, and a member of many local groups that she volunteered for. I don't remember her ever saying something wasn't possible or that she couldn't do something.
I think of her a lot when I feel discouraged or small and she still brings me up, years after her death.
The stories I remember, the experiences we shared live on in my heart and help me through my adult life. All the things I learned from her I am able to share with my family.
All the things I learned about her through others stories I am able to reflect on and see how it fits into my story. 
This is genealogy.
This is the importance of learning where we come from.
It changes us and helps us grow.
Creativity takes courage because it means looking at the flaws and the mistakes to learn how to do better.
Genealogy looks at the skeletons so we can learn how to do better.
Grab your courage and let's get creative through genealogy together. ☠️ Www.inhonourofthem.ca

"The best gift around the Christmas tree is the presence of family wrapped in love." ♥️

* Christmas 1953

Last night we had the honor of hosting the potent work on Ancestral Healing with Brigitte Sztab of ‘Family Constellations’. . Brigitte is a German immigrant who had a powerful message reminding us all of the pains and burdens we are carrying in our lineage. Most of us haven’t even thought about this, at least not to the depth that she brought us in our group. -
Consider that there were incredible hardships we had to overcome just a generation or two ago. Consider that strong emotional memories store themselves in our DNA as a form of protection for our species. Consider our own relationship to our parents, and the pain that was inherited before our individual selves even came into the scene. -
The healing path is one which examines all angles and perspectives. We are learning to appreciate the mysterious way in which awakening occurs. The way Love restores us. But navigating the tricky waters of actual forgiveness and compassion for uninvited familial challenges so we can return to a place of true acceptance for ourselves and the ‘other’ takes a sincere effort. -
As Brigitte said, this work cannot be done with the mind. Our intellect cannot take us to the same places of forgiveness and love and the heart can. We must truly feel. -
We are so thankful for have practices that allow us to feel, and thus heal, these karmic chains. In all the ways that we connect to our heart, we bless those who’ve come before us and honor their lives with our devotion to love. We give back what was never ours to begin with, and return to the true essence of Who We Are. -

Brigitte is a German immigrant who had a powerful message reminding us all of the pains and burdens we are carrying in our lineage. Most of us haven’t even thought about this, at least not to the depth that she brought us in our group. -
Consider that there were incredible hardships we had to overcome just a generation or two ago. Consider that strong emotional memories store themselves in our DNA as a form of protection for our species. Consider our own relationship to our parents, and the pain that was inherited before our individual selves even came into the scene. -
The healing path is one which examines all angles and perspectives. We are learning to appreciate the mysterious way in which awakening occurs. The way Love restores us. But navigating the tricky waters of actual forgiveness and compassion for uninvited familial challenges so we can return to a place of true acceptance for ourselves and the ‘other’ takes a sincere effort. -
As Brigitte said, this work cannot be done with the mind. Our intellect cannot take us to the same places of forgiveness and love and the heart can. We must truly feel. -
We are so thankful for have practices that allow us to feel, and thus heal, these karmic chains. In all the ways that we connect to our heart, we bless those who’ve come before us and honor their lives with our devotion to love. We give back what was never ours to begin with, and return to the true essence of Who We Are. -

What is it about little girls and ponies. Is it affection intertwined with strength? Certainly, it's endearing. Her heart just bursts from the image. ⁠⠀

Dig deep into your old family photos before the stories fade away. Is there a moment in there when a #littlegirlandherpony connected?

Are there any dates in your diary that resonate because they always seem to carry a certain energy? -
For me, this weekend has traditionally been a bit of a tough time... Across one three year period the 7/8 December included two breakups and a traumatic experience that caused me pain & flashbacks for quite a while afterwards. And even when the big stuff wasn't happening, for many years this weekend just seemed to be - to put it bluntly - pretty shitty. -
Looking back I know that all those things helped to pull me away from people and situations that were all out wrong for me, but they still weren't easy.
-
Maybe it's an astrological thing about this time of year, maybe it was a mindset I'd gotten into that attracted more negativity, maybe it was some deep set past life anniversary, or maybe there was something serendipitous going on behind the scenes...
-
Whatever the reason, I reached a point a few years back where I realised I'd started to dread this weekend, and that's when I decided things had to change... -
I started today Christmas shopping, before heading off to the joint birthday party of a friend and his son; tonight I'm going to laugh my socks off while watching stand up comedy and then tomorrow I plan to watch Christmas movies and snuggle with Kali almost all. day. long.  A pretty damned lovely weekend if you ask me. Just as this weekend was last year, aaaaand the year before. -
We're all part of this interconnected Universe of ours meaning that we're all influenced by our own past, our ancestry, our soul's history, the stars and any number of other factors. But does that mean we have to be victims of any of those things? No. -
Even when it's bloody hard, even when it takes deep deep work, strong support and a lot of healing, it's still possible to break out of those cycles and take back the ownership of our lives... no matter what those lives may have thrown at us in the past ❤️xx

Hadrian’s Wall!  This has literally been a dream of mine since I was a freshman at WWU. As many times as I’ve been to England, Matt and I have never gotten up this far north. It was so amazing to think we were hanging out where the Romans were nearly 2000 years ago! Amazing!!!! #englandindecember #hadrianswall #romanfort #historynerd #historyiscool #wanderlust #notallthosewhowanderarelost #birdoswaldromanfort #englishheritage #england #britain #ancestry

Happy December 7th! Each Christmas season I enjoy decorating my home for Christmas to celebrate God's love for us throughout the generations. This December I will be posting pics of my decorated trees along with the inspiration behind each one. 
Tree #7: Here's a picture of one of my favorites. It features pictures of 5 generations of family members cooking and celebrating family dinners along with Grandma Flanagan's vintage cookie cutters and some of her kitchen gadgets. This slim tree fits perfectly in the corner of the eating area adjacent to the kitchen.

I love family history! Every name has a story. Researching different ancestors is like time traveling to me. This original project I made for my mother-in-law and her Nova Scotia roots. The border is her family’s tartan.

Sister of the church, poet of the heart:

Jessy Abbot was the eldest child of her parents, Frank and Elizabeth. She was born in 1895 and had 7 siblings.

From a very early age Jessy was enamoured by her mother's prayer book - it was handcrafted with painted scenes from the Bible. Like her mother she was a devoted Christian woman.

Whilst her brothers and sisters grew up, they nicknamed her "the saint" - not meant as a compliment!

Jessy took holy orders and joined a nunnery at the age of 23. Despite the relative normality of deep religious feeling in the country at this time, it was still unusual for a young woman to join the church in this way.

There might have been an encounter in her teenage years that left a mark which closed off close relationships with men, although there is no evidence for this.

Despite this, Jessy had a heart full of love and expressed it through poetry. She wrote poems for her family's birthdays, weddings and christenings. Her closest relative was her sister Abigail, they wrote hundreds of letters to one another and were friends more than sisters.

In 1935, Abigail was killed in a car accident. Jessy was inconsolable but wrote a little poem for her beloved little sister, it reads: "My closest companion
You are all that I love.
Jesus has called you
Be at peace little dove." Sister Jessy

Jessy took up the role as "favourite aunt" to Abigail's three children and was much loved by the family.

@maevemargarita is a singer, explorer and textural artist, with a very free approach to expression. With a never-ending line of migrant heritage and ancestry, multiculturalism became an identity of its own, where concepts of nationalism, belonging and cultural definition were constantly reimagined and reflected through a mutlidisciplinary approach to art and expression. As a singer, she centres a very free and experimental approach to her music through vocal guidance and uses Jazz as a platform, a lens – wherein boundaries, whichever they may be are obsolete. As an outdoor explorer and adventurer, she creates embodied field and visual recordings in powerful environments – creating experimental, raw soundscapes, interwoven with soul and jazz - seeking to explore social dualisms, within and without. Welcome to the network @maevemargarita!⁠

Delighted to discover, courtesy of my mum's genealogy research, that my 3× great-grandfather was baptised at Christ Church Spitalfields in 1816 and grew up on Wilkes St. Such a glorious historic area to be associated with.

In the 1870s, you could have your photograph taken and produced in about 5 minutes for just 5 cents (about $1.25 today). In the 1880s, Cabinet Cards took off and gained widespread popularity. Photographers encouraged customers to buy copies to share with friends & family. One dozen nice cards might cost $2 (about $50 today). Many photos handed down in families today are of this type, including the first slide here of my great grandfather, Mel S. Wright. 
These photos are of my father’s grandfather. It’s hard to pinpoint the age of some. I know that he died in 1933 because I found the obituary, but I can’t confirm the accuracy of the photo dated 1889. The oldest photograph here looks to be of the Tintype-style used widely in the 1860-70s, but also after that time. I would put it later. I estimate the boyhood photos here were taken in the early to mid 1880s, just one generation after the American Civil War... That is to say that the oldest of these photos pre-date the existence of The Coca-Cola Company, the Eiffel Tower of France, and the Meiji Constitution of Japan (明治憲法)"Meiji Kenpō" for starters.

Mark Twain described this period in American history as the Gilded Ageーan era of serious social problems masked by a thin gold veneer. The Gilded Age saw a rapid increase in American wages, economic growth and immigration, but was also a time of poverty and inequality in the United States. The high concentration of wealth became ever more visible and contentious. This was followed in the 1890s by the beginning of the Progressive Era, which saw widespread social activism and political reform across the nation. #americanhistory #photography #earlyphotography #oldphotographs #oldphotos #tintype #cabinetcards #familyphotos #familyhistory #ancestry #gildedage #victorianera #edwardianera #progressiveera #america #history
