I am so in love with this song and this artist.
Give it a listen.
I want to be queen of a one horse town.
I posted a few moths ago “What is a Hippie part one” This is going to be part two. Instead of another general post about what I think hippies are, this is going to be about what kind of hippie I am.
I’m second generation hippie. My parents and uncle Terry were the “original hippies” in my family. You would never know this by looking at them now. But fortunately my uncle loves to tell the stories and pull out the pics on occasion.
I’m not exactly a “fruits and nuts” variety hippie as one of my aunts like to call modern day hippies. I do love fruits and nuts and I am definitely all about saving the planet as best I can being married to a man who works in the energy services field.We have a cabin “in the woods” we are planning on retiring there eventually and it will be as close to “green” as we can get it and still not freeze in the winter. We WANT to be self sustaining eventually.
We hunt. Some people are highly offended by this. A lot of people who are also hippie type are vegan. We NEVER trophy hunt and we are very much against this type of hunting. We don’t hunt very much. Twice a year and some years we harvest nothing. If there isn’t a old or injured deer to harvest and help thin the heard, we don’t take anything. We ALWAYS eat what we take. We don’t buy meat from grocery stores because of the disgusting treatment of industrially raised animals. We are careful and thoughtful of where our food comes from. We only buy free range no antibiotic eggs from people we know. I know that some of you will still have a problem with me. All I can say is we are making efforts. It’s more than I can say for most of Americans.
We are grandparents.
We love them all.
I sew. I love to make pillows for my grandkids and anyone who will take one.
I love to create anything with anything I find lying around.
We ride motorcycles. We just started a couple years ago. We love it. We have made many really great friends while riding. It’s a great way to connect with nature and yourself. I think a lot about life and what’s important to me while I’m on that bike.
I wear many hats and I enjoy them all.
That’s me. Not your typical hippie but my own kind of hippie.
Who are you?
I have had such a nice month of September so far.
Don’t rush to judge me. Hear me out first.
One of the reasons my month has been nice is because of…
I never watched the cartoon Pokémon. My kids watched it and played with the cards. I bought them cards, but I didn’t know what they were doing with them.
Lots of kids collected trading cards.
To me, the new game meant nothing. I briefly worried about the whole “the government is tracking people with this odd game”.
I have concluded that we are probably tracked with these phones anyway in ways we don’t even understand. If we aren’t, that’s great. If we are, then my only recourse is shut off the phone or accept it.
For now I’ve accepted it because I have to. My family would probably have me locked up for being crazy if I unplug.
So in the meantime, myself, my husband and one of our sons are all playing Pokémon Go.
before Pokémon Go, we hardly spent any time together other than the occasional family dinner. We were busy or they were. He is married with two young children.
We all now meet two or three times a week at the parks around here and walk together and talk. A lot. We walked the track around the park for two miles last night!
My daughter in law doesn’t play the game and I’m not overly into it so we walk together and push the baby around. My son and his dad are playing, laughing, competing and walking all over the park. Mostly they walk behind us and veer off occasionally to find a Pokémon gym. But they are always within yelling distance so they can see us.
We are having family fun and exercisizing.
It’s a win-win situation.
Whatever it takes!
Hippie Lady 💜☮
P.S. I’m kind of hurting today. I may have over done it since I’m an amateur exerciser. 😩
Every generation has and will have names for the generations in the decades before them.
I have names for what I see in the generations before me. I and others call some of 1960’s and 1970’s society as Beatniks, Hippies, Disco Queens to name a few.
Names we give to our predecessors come from what was seen or heard in media and from conversations or experiences with others. For example think of “flappers”. It gives you a visual of a certain time.
I was a teen and twenty something in the 1980’s. The other day I was wondering to myself; why do I call myself Hippie Lady online? My mother was more hippie lady than I.
I loved Stevie Nicks’ style. She was like a good witch, or fairy. Mystical. She mesmerized men and women alike with her style.
My point is, what do people call the 80’s as pertaining to my so called idea of Stevie Style? It was widespread. It was beautiful. It was the mother of what became 90’s gothic.
It was/is the quiet child of hippie style. I think it’s bohemian. This style is timeless and has reincarnated since women stood and draped cloth across their bodies in lovely flowing silhouettes. Classic.
As for the Madonna look of the 80’s? I think it is hippies wild child. I don’t think it will be anything other than subject for Halloween costumes of the future. Much like those poodle skirts of the past became.
Well, one could only hope that they don’t come back. If it does. We would have to give it a name. 🤔
Hippie Lady 💜☮
Psst… I wore that Madonna look and I think I rocked it. ☺️
I just came across this. I don’t like to focus on the person who wrote this. I know nothing about her or what she is all about. I did provide a link to the author at the bottom. I like this message very much, regardless.
Light Bearer, any limitation that you feel blocks your path is an expression of a memory you carry deep within your physical, emotional and energetic bodies of times when your efforts were limited by situations in which your light was rejected.
These are often expressions of your martyr and victim consciousness, when you offered yourselves as a healing light to your soul groups knowing that they were not yet prepared for their transformationthrough your help, Lightbearer
It was never your mission to change the world, your role in the world is to shine your light in all of its expressions.
And you can do that, no matter what the world does in response.
The world will eventually turn towards the light when it has experienced enough darkness. When the world can find power in love it will no longer need fear. But it must experience both to make that choice. Lightbearer, you can be the love the world needs to have as one choice among many.
All Light bearers have had lifetimes of service in the world, to be forces for change and transformation. The light was always extended even though there were many lifetimes when it was extinguished because the world wasn’t ready to release its fear.
Those times you felt betrayed by Source and the belief that you were abandoned and not supported as a source of light and love was created. This belief has reverberated throughout your lifetimes and it is strongly expressed within your soul group.
Through the ego, Lightbearer, you have translated this role of bringers of the light to mean that you have come to change the world. But you have simply come to be a source of light, a connection to the light and love and Source for those who are willing to see and recognize it to acknowledge it and accept it into their own hearts and being.
From these experiences you have pushed yourselves further into dimming your own light, limiting the expression of your Lightbearer gifts and not choosing the path of powerful creation for yourselves. If the world does not change and accept you and your gifts, you believe that you are not worthy of the joy, love, abundance and success that are your divine birthright.
Lightbearer, You martyr yourself on behalf of the light and yet that is merely an expression of your own fear that by being powerful you are a threat rather than an inspiration. You can be all you desire and want to have, every dream is possible for you when you shine your light and are willing to accept blessings for yourselves.
The path of the martyr and victim is not the highest expression of your energies and limiting your abundance is not in integrity with Lightbearer truth. You can be all things within your life as you express who you are to a world that may or may not accept it.
Be your truth, that is all you can do, and allow the world to follow its path until it is ready to make its own transformation.
You have come to bring the truth of divinity and ascension to the world, Lightbearer, now express that in your own life and you will be the change the world seeks. Each of you can change the world when you begin within your own reality and shine your light within you, illuminating your own shadows, releasing your fear, connecting to your inner resources and being the light in your life so you can also en-lighten the world.
My parents love music. I love the music that played while I was in the womb. The music that played in the background of my youth while I was laying in the floor with my toys. I love the music that played in the distance while I lay in bed at night. Let’s not forget the music that played on the car radio while we fought with our siblings in the backseat. It is the soundtrack to life.
I listened to music more than watched tv in the 1960’s and early 1970’s. The small black and white televisions in most homes didn’t give you the mental stimulation that music did and it was all around us.
