Week TwentyFour: Awakening Memories

Awakening Memories

I am in Aotearoa NZ my birth place…visiting friends & family, as you exit the plane and finally get to walk through the gateway way ‘Te Waharoa’ being welcomed home…then you get your bags & head outside to the coffee truck…mmmmmmmm NZ coffee, now I’m home.

We pick up our hire car and head to Piha to catch up with the Ultimate Waterman Crew and our adventure starts, this one takes four days, we head back to the beach Waihi Beach that is…Unpack & wash, then re pack and head down to the mountain Mt Ruapehu that is…with mum & Mr Jones in tack.?

As we get closer to Ohakune all of my memories start to flow, this is where Sian & I spent her early years. I’m excited I have arrived as we pull into the driveway in Tawhero Street, I look forward to the DeeVine night sky up in the high desert, mountain folk you know what I’m saying, no lights on, fresh clean crisp untainted air… After all the family stuff is done it’s time to explore the night…the deer are ROARing, Warwick tells me their names Sika & Red and the sky is aglow with stars, planets & constellations, I fall asleep in BLISS…

As soon as I can I head out to Rangataua to see my mate Ma-zeena-zebu-leena she is part of our tribe of women, a grand mother, a mother, a wife and beautiful friend, her daughter Kara left the planet last year and my mate is soooo sad, we hug & walk around the garden and then find ourselves sitting down having a korero, reminiscing and catching up on everything since we saw each other last. Each of us awakening memories hidden deep within…

I turned up at Tainui Street to see my friend Jo Wahine, the rest of the family was busy doing stuff…Jo & I caught up on all the everything, she was doing her business book work, but stopped so we could hang for awhile, Errol her Dad and the DEEVine Miss Holly bounced in with gifts of apples & blackberries freshly picked from the garden, Ann her mum had a soul she was working with in her healing space, Wendy who spotted me from the window and said to Ani “who is that”? “She is a very powerful spiritual being” Ani replied “Oh that will be Lorelei Elizabeth Dann I s’pose, and yes she is” So now Ani knew I had arrived. We all finally got together and had an AWEsome wee visit with promises to Holly to return in the morning….

So the next day I drop back into Ani & Errol’s with their new addition the DEEVine miss Holly their grand-daughter…WOW the house is ALIVE with her pure, JOY-filled energy and proper English accent, our souls re-unite and dance in WONDER… Around the garden are some art pieces I left as I travelled off on adventures overseas, Holly had found my taller than her wrought iron Daisy and proceeded to drag it out of the garden two weeks before I had even arrived in the country from Kauai…When Ann or Errol said “ok Holly lets put it back (she had now dragged it up the stairs and it had a place of Welcome right at the entry to their front door) Holly would reply “Oh no not yet”! She knew I was coming and I hadnt even met her yet, Ann & Errol figured I was going to turn up anytime soon and I did… We soon find ourselves in the garden where I’m looking for old herbs and trees, awakening Ani’s memories, her garden is full of green magic and knowledge, she had forgotten much…The last five years her energy was being in service to others and getting shared custody with their son Brother Paul of Holly…I arrived at the perfect time when they were all wandering around in the garden, harvesting bounty before the winter arrives with those sparkling eyes and hearts filled with JOY, thankYOU Holly for arriving when you did, PERfect timing as the Universe turns….

The next day is filled with these tribe members I want to spend time and soak them all up into my bones once again, awakening memories old and new for me and them alike, we spent a lot of time together healing and in service to the local community through meditation, education books, crystals and of course the phamapedia in the garden, we share moments of Joy and good coffee with good food, lots of laughter and Holly’s Bliss. It is time to leave and Ani hands me a brown paper bag there are three books inside I am excited to see what they are…

I see all of the people I am to see at this time of my visit they each have their own stories…Teena, she makes an amazing clothing line, and her two boys Jethro and Lathan with Sian all grew up together in the shadow of the Mountain they are all in their late twenty’s now…”Time keeps on ticking ticking into the future” Karen a naturopath & Richard an architect with their horses, chickens and always adding on house and gardens and all memories old and new.

We head north driving beside the Mountains and across the Central Plateau finally dropping down to sea level and back to the beach…Unpack, re-pack and head to the Far North, we have more friends to visit Arrin, Yoka and the kids, Renee, Rewi and Terei and Harry Arrin’s brother, and Paulie who is in spirit now having left the planet also last year, plus anyone else we run into at the Whangarei Fritter Festival…. Arrin, Harry & Paulie are like my big Maori brothers, filled with my whakapapa (family) knowledge and they share these teachings awakening those memories for me, the lesson this time came from Paulie through Arrin he is one of the pacific celestial navigators…ThankYou Paulie for the memories awakened within me re the stars, planets and constellations ? our memories are from before, into the present and always into the future BUT forever in the NOW…?

Week TwentyThree: The POWER of YOUR THOUGHTS


My friend Bob says I am always the optimist, always thinking the positive and good in every situation no matter how dire.
I have always lived my life this way, never worrying about where anything I need is coming from just actively sending out the thoughts, trusting and believing.
I have found when I did get side tracked it is by other people’s thoughts BUT it didn’t take me long to realize that…I blessed them with loving kindness ? and carried on within my own world of reality.


My husband when I first met him would say to me “they are only words” I would reply “words are power-filled” they can build and they can destroy us, other people, towns, cities even countries from the silent words we speak within to the words spread unto the masses through the media.
We have a Construction Company here on Kauai, clients ask my husband “can you build, do or make this?” His answer is always “YES we can” he has no idea sometimes on the how to, he just knows it will happen, most times for him the answers come at night in his dreams, he does much of his conception and building while he sleeps 😉


When my daughter Sian and I moved to Australia we headed north from Sydney and followed the SUN stopping where we wanted to, we kept heading north until we found ourselves in North Queensland we stopped at a camp ground and started to look for a job, house and a school. We decided to go for a drive and check out some areas in the northern beaches, as we were driving down Millionaires Row in Kewarra Beach we slow drived along looking at all the beautiful homes, Sian was attracted to one place right on the beachfront as it had a huge stained glass window  in the entry she said “mum we are going to live there” I said “that would be AWEsome, we laughed and kept exploring…

I scored an AMAZing Eventing Job on a Premium Golf Course out at yip…you guessed it Kewarra Beach. So we got the newspaper & started looking for a place to live.
I circled this one advertisement that said “sunny beachfront rental” then rung up about a couple of other places and thought what the hell, I’ll ring the ‘sunny beach front rental’…It was on Millionaire’s Row, I said to Sian we can take a look…YES it was the beautiful home with the stained glass in the entrance that Sian said we were going to live in…We met the landlady who was a sweet old eccentric bird, the rental was the whole downstairs there was a full length swimming pool in the back garden as she was an ex Olympic Swimmer and a garden gate that opened right onto the beach, we scored this place for $120 per week including utilities!


I am so glad that my daughter had tuned into EVERYthing being a possibility, YOU just decide what you want and Viola the universe will supply it! She has become a master of manifestation? she is now 26 her passion is traveling the world and meeting people and this is just what she does with not a care in the world living her dreams ?

Week TwentyTwo: Journey into the Silence finding Nirvana WithIn

Into the Silence the Beginning…

I have gone into the Silence several times in this my lifetime so far…I am very comfortable in my own head, my own space my own Samsara…


 My breath slows, my heart rate slows, my mind slows…I AM filled with light, energy and peace…A grin spreads across my face and every part of me softens…

The Journey Begins…

Then in my minds eye I see it…the “Blue Pearl” disappearing into the gap and I’m gone…

Back later with what happened in the GAP…
