Just after dawn, on the back lawn near the garden, at The Rancho
Each offering of “Masters Among Us” must begin with some kind of reason it exists at all, right? Why did I need to see Melissa, setting up time specifically for us to simply be together, open and peaceful and wanting to share.
So it goes with great souls. I want to sit in their knowingness, their beingness, and just learn. Don’t you? I know there are those who do that with me. And I have friends I click with because they offer me something I haven’t even considered, or they have raised to a high art that which I haven’t thought interesting.
A few of Melissa and Steve’s free-range (and delicious) chickens.
But for today, after a little set up, I want to introduce a dear friend of mine. She is wise beyond what she can or will reveal. That’s not entirely due to modesty. She has what all of us have, a faint aroma in the air, that the one emitting does not realize is from their very pores. A sort of magic clings to these people, and yet they report their magic as if it is normal. It appears to be humility. But instead, it is simple habituation and good-humored accord with something far larger than they, something they have not only acknowledged, but befriended and learned to talk with.
The beloveds: Steve Davis, and Melissa Elmore Davis.
Melissa is an Earth Mother, a Gaian Goddess, a Master Manifester, and an amazing example of the fruits and joys abundant within a life verdant with self understanding and self acceptance, supportive behavior and supreme spiritual responsibility. She walks her walk, and talks her talk. She is a high-level metaphysician, like many of us, self-trained, self-motivated, and self-sufficient.
The Rancho’s chicken coop. Behind me, all around me, is an organic, self sustained farm.
I invite you to join me as I recount for you a magical morning’s lessons and understandings.
Offered is a video giving you a taste of the visual reality, our connection, and Melissa’s beauty. We then went outside, but it was gusty, and Melissa’s chair was beckoning. It is there we did our podcast, in which Melissa is given free reign to explore, run and play, leap and giggle, rest and relax.
Where so much of the magic happens… Melissa’s meditation chair!
Join us as we delight, surprise and strengthen each other. First, with coffee and full bellies, we meandered through the garden out back. Sitting down, it was natural to find springing around us another garden we both find pleasurable, where the fruits are juicy, the earth is black with abundance, and the air tingles skin, a sprinkling of fairy love throughout this work.
Flowers and a fascinating little beige bug, on the front porch of The Rancho.
I know my words do not do our friendship or her beauty justice. And so, I want her to speak for herself. She will blow you away. She is a master, walking among us, at peace, ready, and joyfully aware that the best is here, and only getting better.
The photos let us stroll through her garden, poke around her house, meet some of her loved ones, and even show you her rocket! Get familiar, push play, and let the magic transport you to wherever it wants to. In our hands, the rocket goes very far indeed!
Melissa watering the front yard. That cool little bug got a starring role, too!

One of the pigs. Let’s say this one is Roscoe. The other is in rooting around near me, and his name begins with an R, too.

Dawn, before it all began, from the porch I call mine, during my magical stays at The Rancho. ❤
