A little about farm life

It’s April, time to start thinking about seeding (planting). We have one crop a year, which is a winter crop and we usually work o starting to plant the seeds around April 26th. This year, it sounds as though we’ll be getting going a little earlier.

What I do what to show you is some photos our daughter has taken while she has been driving a tractor. You see, leading up to seeding, we do deep ripping. We’re ripping the ground down about 500mm (I think😬) so the wheat plants find it easier to put their roots down deeper to make the most of the soil moisture we have. We rip part of our farm every year, the part that’s going into wheat, the rest is planted to canola and lupins. This year we also ripped on a 5 degree angel to break up more of the hard pan and to help inter grate the soil at seeding.

Any way, here’s some pics from deep ripping and some ripper sunsets.

The Big Black Wolf

I’mHi there, thanks for stopping by. Today I have a little something light and funny to share along with what I learnt from it.

One of my animal guides is a wolf and not just any wolf, it’s a BIG BLACK MALE WOLF. So this morning in meditation I asked him what his name is and he told me ‘Gary’ I nearly laughed, I mean, Gary 😂 really? It just didn’t seem to fit him. At the same time I got a flash of a tv advertisement that at the time I thought the dogs name was Gary you can check it out here Anyway, he knew I didn’t take him seriously and I asked him again, he replied with George and again I went, are you serious? I mean these names just don’t seem to fit your appearance to me. I had asked him in a previous meditation as well and he came up with some really weird name (I can’t for the life of me remember what it was and that’s not important) at this time I actually laughed out loud, I cracked up. So today he asked me what I thought his name is and I replied with wolf, just simply wolf and he agreed that was the perfect name that I could call him.

What I learnt from this is that this spiritual stuff,/learning/remembering doesn’t have to be all serious and business like with a goal at every turn, it can be fun and lighthearted. So go forward today with lighted hearted ness in your soul and have some fun. I’ve been at a farm paperless office workshop today which I did very much enjoy and I’ve just come home to start making some changes to my current system so I can move forward.

Thanks again for stopping by, chat soon

I AM

Hi, how are you today? Me? I’m great thanks for asking 😁. I’m sitting listening to some groovy music while journaling. Things are flowing into my experience and it feels so great.

Recently when I was privileged to listen to Nadine Champion talk in Perth she asked us as a group to write I AM at the top of our page, then 1,2,3,4,5 down the page. She then asked us to take a couple of minutes to write 5 things about ourselves, as in our true deep selves, not that I have brown hair, or am thin, or tall…….things that are deeper than what the eye can see. The types of things our friends say about us.

I have worked for the last 12months on myself and if this was 12 months ago, I would have struggled, which most of hate women around me did. I was so proud because I could list 6 things about ME. And coming out of meditation I have been able to add to that list. Nadine asked us to continue adding to it and to get to 100. Well I’m on my way………

So I’m going to start sharing here with you what my I AM words are. Where I’m at and where I’m heading. I’ll add a new post as I find more words. I’m going to grow this to 100.

I AM

Tanya, pure source energy, love, joy, happiness, expressive, fun, knowledgeable, calm, wise, kind, creator, created, creative, worthy, honest, beautiful, a great friend, loyal, dedicated, hard working, clever, bright, a woman, brave, loving, caring, brave, strong, fluid, giver, receiver,

This is my start and I’m excited to grow this list, I’m really keen to see where my truth leads me. I’m excited to find some growth and words that at the moment don’t feel so easy to say, going deeper and becoming more aware of who I am…truly.

I’d love to know what some of your words are for your I AM. Or maybe you could sit and connect with yourself and find the first 5 words that come to your mind that are YOU ❤️

Take care, be easy and much love

Approaching things with intention

Hey, it’s me again. I know I have been so absent, and now I’m here twice in a matter of days…… I’m starting to really get a feel of some things I’m wanting to share.

So today I want to talk about approaching things with intention. Recently I went to a 2 day farming seminar in Perth. I caught up with some old friends, made new ones and listened to some very inspirational women share some wonderful ideas and thoughts. This seminar was for farming women. It was great to be in a room with 200+ other farming women all relatable to each other.

One message that was loud and clear over the 2 days was…..how do we take all this information home and share it with our families. Now most of the time these families are our in laws and sometimes the situation between parents in law and daughter in laws can be a bit….let’s say sensitive. I totally understand where they’re coming from. I’ve been there and would even say that I’m still there to a certain extent. Coming into a farming family can be hard. The family have worked hard all their life to get to the position they are in and they don’t always know how to make you feel welcome in the “business” side of things.

Farmers are very unique and very protective of what they have worked hard to earn. And I totally get it, because as our children are getting older and my husband is talking about us only really being here fully working in the farm for another 10years, I don’t know that I’m all that happy with moving On, I’ll still be young….and I love our farm 😀.

Anyway……… I’ve been thinking since I got home from Perth about how can women take new information back to their family farms and introduce new thoughts and processes to help improve their businesses. And I’ve come up with the idea that we need to do it with intention. We as women/wives/mothers/daughters/daughter in laws need to feel strong in what we are taking home and take the subject to conversation with intention of improvement. Not improvement as in something is broken and it needs fixing, with intention of helping improve and making something easier, simpler, safer, more economical. We need to be sure about what it is that we are saying. The only thing I can relate it to is, when you are standing up for one of your kids. You will do anything for your kids safety and happiness, you know you are within your rights to stand up for them. So with the same passion of wanting to help the business, take your idea home and share with the intention and passion of helping, joining in and being part of something that you love. And go with love, go with the anticipation of being heard and taken seriously. Go with confidence that it is a good idea. Go with suggestions of how it can work and how it can solve a problem or potential problem. You are worth being listened!

This is how I’m going to approach my new proposed changes, upgrades, improvements and I believe that when I go into a meeting or make a suggestion with that passion and belief that it will be listened to and appreciated. I’ll let you know how I go.

So go with intention and you will be amazed at the results you can achieve.

Listen to your intuition

Hi folks, thanks for stopping by today.

I wanted to share a little something with you that I have experienced lately. And it comes back to listening to your intuition. Whenever I’ve had that gut feeling I’ve listened to it and followed through with what I felt was right. In the past though, I thought I had to prove a point about being right. Now I just listen and follow through to see what the result or outcome is.

I’ve had a mole on the back of my leg for about 5 years. My husband has mentioned it to me, I’ve had people mention it to me while in line at the cafe, I’ve had my parents mention it, I’ve had friends comment on it and every time I’ve said yeh it’s all good. I recently went on a trip to Cambodia and while there I have a feeling that it was time to have the mole removed. So at my next doctors appointment I mentioned it and he cut it out then and there. In 4 days he rang me to tell me that it was an invasive malignant melanoma and needed to have more flesh cut out to make sure they got it all. Long story short, it’s all good now and all traces of the melanoma have gone, which is wonderful news.

I’m so thankful I listened to my gut feeling, my intuition and had it removed now because I know it has saved me a lot of heartache, pain, treatment and angst.

So, if you get that gut feeling, listen to it, trust it, it’s your inner guidance to what is right for you personally.

Take care and have a wonderful day.

Balance and Appreciation

Hi there. Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you are having a great day.

Something I really struggle with is working out what it is that I want to write about, so I have decided to just write, blow trying to get it right, or trying to stay on track or on topic as well as worrying about what people will actually think about what I write. My life is full of many different things, my head is full of ideas, thoughts, processes, questions and so I have decided to just share how it is.

Do you ever wonder how you’re going to fit everything into life that you want to do? And I’m only talking about the day to day stuff……not the bucket list stuff! I have so much I want to learn about food, spirituality, bookkeeping, farming, essential oils and the list just goes on. It becomes a little well maybe really overwhelming sometimes.

So I’m giving it my best. I’m going to have a go at keeping balance in my life while appreciating what it is that I’m learning, have achieved, and strive to achieve. I am so blessed with my life to be able to do whatever it is I want each day (as long as the lunch boxes and bookkeeping is done). So I’m going to look at writing some things I want to do each day. And the funny thing is that I’ve written this post about 3 times and this is only just coming to me right now as I’m writing. I want to be able to meditate, cook, research, do some office work, spend time outside…..wow no hang on the list is getting too long. I think I’m going to start with making sure I meditate each day as well as do some form of cooking. Now the cooking thing is a big thing right now and I’ll write a post about that in the next couple of days, just to share with you some of what happens in my kitchen 😊. The office work will always get done, because I LOVE it and it has to so our business can continue to run. The outside thing, well I need to collect my chicken eggs everyday, so I need to take a moment outside when I’m walking down to the chicken yard to connect with nature and research, well that is never ending, there’s so much to learn.

I’m going to head off to bed now, because I could just keep rambling on and on about all sorts of things and I don’t want to, I want to head off to bed with the thoughts of appreciation, balance and a plan in my mind……ready to get up tomorrow and go explore life.

Thanks again for stopping by and I hope you call again, I know my posts will get better with more regularity, so please bear with me while I discover what it is that I’m wanting to share 🙏 ❤️.

Morning messages

Howdy doody to all those in the world of cyberspace. I hope you are having a wonderful day today.

I want to share with you a message I received this morning when I finished meditation, I feel so much joy for the pleasure of having receiving this.

Thank you for the gifts of self reflection, for looking within will tell you all you need to know to answer all the questions you have. Stop asking others and start asking yourself. Take your time. It will come. Feel comfortable in what you do for rushing will only cause confusion. Confusion causes chaos. Chaos causes doubt. Doubt causes anxiousness. Anxiousness leads to disbelief and Disbelief stops the process.

I hope this brings some light to your day today.
