Yellowstone National Park : Explore Deeply : Adventures of the Heart : A Celebration of Life on Earth

Inspiring, Landscape, Nature, Photography, TravelChloë RainComment
What I love most about this crazy life is the adventure of it.
— Juliette Binoche

As with most adventures of the heart, it began with awkward excitement, and fumbling and staying up all night, singing stories, and playing games.

And as with most adventures of the heart, it ended in awkward silence, and fumbling and tears.

But it is said, that with some, it is only in adventure that we succeed in finding ourselves, knowing ourselves... and so when it is time to say goodbye- don't be so sad, because as you wave goodbye, say Hello.... Hello to a new adventure.

Try not to look back, you know you'll never be the same, but try not to look back. It's wild to realize that you don't remain the same, no matter how hard you cling, everything you thought you knew goes away, then more of you shows up, but you don't even know her... and then eventually you come full circle again, and you feel comfortable in your skin... but man... you're never the same again.

And that is wonderful and strange.  - Chloë Rain

We love because it’s the only true adventure.
— Nikki Giovanni, American Poet

Say Hello and Wave Goodbye......

I don't belong to you, you see
Take a look at my face for the last time
I never knew you, you never knew me
Say hello, goodbye
Say hello, wave goodbye

Going to the Sun Road: Heaven on Earth: Glacier National Park Montana: Explore Deeply

Landscape, Inspiring, Photography, NatureChloë RainComment

One of the most amazing highlights of Glacier National Park is a drive on the Going-to-the-Sun Road. This engineering marvel spans 50 miles through the park's wild interior, winding around mountainsides and boasting some of the most amazing views in Montana.

When we drove Going-to-the-Sun-Road we didn't quite get the meaning of the name until it took our breath away.  

There's nothing quite like this "engineering marvel" of a road, and at one point I felt like Icarus, that my wings might melt off, as I flew too close to the sun.

Going-to-the-Sun-Road: Fun Video from the Car : Glacier National Park : Montana : Explore Deeply

The only road to cross Glacier National Park from east to west, the epic Going-to-the-Sun Road, takes travelers over the Continental Divide at Logan Pass, and lays claim to some of grandest sights in the Rocky Mountains. Along its course the road passes glacial lakes and cedar forests in the lower valleys, and windswept alpine meadows and sweeping mountain vistas atop the 6646-foot pass.

Portions of the road hug the mountainside as it traverses over steep drop-offs and steers through tight curves.

There are two tunnels, one on either side of Logan Pass, that motorists will drive through. The East Side Tunnel is 408 feet long, while the West Side Tunnel is 192 feet in length.

There is no highway which will give the seer, the lover of grandeur of the Creator’s handiwork, more thrills, more genuine satisfaction deep in his being, than will a trip over this road.
— Governor Frank H. Cooney during the Dedication of the Sun Road - July 15, 1933

In the late fall of 1932, after three decades of construction, almost 500,000 pounds of explosives, and more than $2,000,000 in costs, the first automobile drove the entire length of the Going-to-the-Sun Road. Glacier National Park formally opened the road in a special ceremony at Logan Pass on July 15, 1933.

The road received its name during the 1933 dedication, borrowing it from nearby Going-to-the-Sun Mountain. Local legend, as relayed in a 1933 Department of the Interior press release, tells the story of the Blackfoot deity, Sour Spirit, who came down from the sun to teach young braves the basics of hunting. On his way back to the sun Sour Spirit had his image reproduced on the top of the mountain for inspiration to the Blackfeet. An alternate story, however, suggests that a white explorer in the 1880s concocted the name and the legend.

Going-to-the-Sun-Road is one of the most extraordinary experiences I have had the blessing to enjoy in my lifetime. A must see, must do, put it on your bucket list.  IN-Joy!

CeremonyChloë RainComment

Today is the last day of the first live 21 Days to Love Program, and tomorrow is the Full Moon Ceremony completing our practice of releasing shame, resentments, and attachments and deepening our experience to have, receive, and BE more LOVE.

During this live program I have been channeling the energies of love and healing and sending them to the individuals in the group. I have also been channeling a new program "21 Days of Prosperity" in the "background" while leading the group to higher vibrations of Love, Self Love, and Romantic Love.

It has been a powerful experience, in just 21 days SO MUCH CAN HAPPEN, change and SHIFT. Its truly amazing! I am happily surprised by the amount of change that I have witnessed in the group.

If you would like to join the next 21 Days to Love Program or the upcoming 21 Days of Prosperity LIVE Program, please send us an email > here.

FULL MOON rising in ☆Aquarius 

Aquarius, the water bearer, brings inklings of expansive vision and a new breath release which comes after facing our struggles.

Astrological Insights by : Mystic Mamma

“Aquarius is like an unexpected breeze on a hot summer day. It’s the surprise breakthrough that comes in the midst of struggle. Or a startling event that wakes you up, like a cosmic alarm clock.

“…Epic ah-has happen at the Aquarius Full Moon, when we bust through our own (often self-imposed) glass ceiling and breathe the air.

“The good vibes of Aquarius are best received with an open mind.  If it’s time for a radical upgrade in your thinking, there’s often a period of in-between. Aquarius has two rulers — Uranus and Saturn. One is the evolutionary urge, the other (Saturn) shows us how to ground the charge.

“Being able to see that the way we organize and perceive reality itself, is up for tweaking, can be liberating. If you’ve felt at a dead-end, and stagnant, get ready for unexpected plot twists!’

Emotions like Waves, Desire like Ocean

Chloë RainComment

Sunday April 7th, 2013 Golden Gardens Park  (Originally Published April 8th, 2013)

The smell of these flowers caught my attention today at brunch. There were people nestled in window seats, reading old fashioned Sunday newspapers, drinking foamy cappuccinos, April rain coming down outside.  

IMG_6842.JPG

I sat reading my book, enjoying the buzz of people around me, until the place cleared for the evening.

Sitting there I had a flash of complete comprehension, a glimpse of the complex and all-encompassing master plan, how everything makes sense, even the longing.

It was like watching myself, out of my body, my awareness of my own self was slightly above me and to the left, then tears.

Why tears? Its difficult to put into words now, because the flash was all knowing and yet my conscious self can't really grasp it completely.  

In the past I would have mistaken my recent emotional eruptions for sadness. Today, I felt in to my deepest desire, my soul sensing the disconnect between  "what I've been working on lately" and what it is I long for, I ache for....

I saw how even this sadness and longing is in service to my heart opening.  

I've been experiencing these waves and waves of emotion.... happiness, connectedness, sadness, physical desire, physical longing, spiritual desire, spiritual longing, oneness, wholeness, brokenness, fullness....and all the while the fire inside of me growing, my spirit brightening, my emotions deepening, my true desires being revealed, my true self emerging. Life unfolding before my eyes. Learning love. Remembering love. 

The woman I had been, so disconnected from my emotions, so disconnected from my desires, and yet I had this utter confusing and unquenchable longing to be touched at the deepest level.

Now looking back, at who I was, a cog in the machine, following the rules, living inside the box, shoulding all over myself, disassociated from my own body, my own femininity, and hiding my deepest desire to surrender my entire self to love....

I was looking for the one who would fix me.

All along that person was me. Is me.

I was afraid of my own emotions, I was afraid of my own depths.

The spring of desire began to overflow the thimble sized container I had been holding for love and emotions in my life.

Today I experienced my emotions and desire in total expansiveness.

Emotions like waves, never stopping, rolling in,

then receding,

pounding continuously, then easing the shore, rippling gently, smooth.

Desire like Ocean,

the depths fathomless, expansive,

extending beyond the horizon, to the end of the earth.

Heart yearning.....heart opening......heart longing......heart opening.....

Rose ceremony, every petal a prayer.

Sending messages of love out into the Universe.
