Once Upon A Solstice ~

Once Upon A Solstice ~

The cool thing about this Solstice, in particular, and all of them together, is that an opening into a transmission of light of this magnitude is an itinerary busting event. What does the Monopoly game call it? A Get Out of Jail FREE card! A prize of wish-fulfilling jewel quality!


Coming Full Circle ~

Coming Full Circle ~

As the oceans evaporate, the skies deliver precipitation, and the rivers return that flow to the sea, all things come full circle. This applies to our patterns as well as to nature {of which we are a part}. We cycle through our incarnations, learning as we go, in order to come full circle.

Lately, it feels like coming full circle every hour or two, the end-over-end rotation culminating in either a face plant or some kind of reactive face-saving activity. Neither of these coping mechanisms will serve us. We are aware of that, as we find our moments of stillness and joy. Then we are flung into the spin cycle once again.

When Truth Sets Us Free ~

When Truth Sets Us Free ~

Jacques Cousteau is quoted as saying "When we return wild animals to nature, we merely return to them what was already theirs. For men cannot give wild animals freedom. They can merely take it away."

We Don't Know What We Don't Know ~

We Don't Know What We Don't Know ~

This concept is well known in all circles of 'inner work' but what about its impact in our lives when we or those around us do not practice uncovering our blind spots?

I am writing about this because I have heard myself say, over and over of late, "Are you deaf, dumb and blind, Tommy?!" ~ psychically, of course, because rude unless the person is a direct student of mine and mostly because the individuals in question would not hear it anyway.

The Impact Zone ~

The Impact Zone ~

The recent new moon produced a wave of transformation, whose immediate after-effects are an impact zone. More important than any alignment is the way in which we surf the impacts of what is changing in our lives. Surfing advice ‘101’.

Ascension and Re-invention ~

Ascension and Re-invention ~

Is ascension a constant state of reinvention? If we thought about it that way, would it be less intimidating to the ego, or moreso? Does it matter?

Bealtaine Blessings~

Bealtaine Blessings~

Have you noticed that the deluge of the full moon window plunged us straight into the Bealtaine opening? Source's river rafting at its finest! While Bealtaine is currently celebrated on May Day {1st May} the astrological cross-quarter falls on 5th May this year.

We are swept into the midst of our deepest currents while Source moves wind, water, and earth, purifying collective consciousness in preparation for what comes next. So many ask me that question lately! "What comes next?"

How Will You Set Your Course?

How Will You Set Your Course?

I've been musing a bit lately on the various passages of this life and others, wondering if any of it actually mattered. contemplating the grand scheme of things, you know, from the perspective of the infinite observer. The bottom line truth is, it all mattered to me. Our lives matter to us because we create our manifestations in matter from what matters.

Voices in the Wind

Voices in the Wind

One of my favorite lines from the film Thunderheart comes toward the very end. "If you ever need someplace to come to... to listen to the wind...we'll be here." In many indigenous traditions, the voice of the wind is the voice of Spirit. Are you listening?

And what happens when the clamor of the 'noise and haste' or your own unconscious fears drown out the voice in the wind?

Wayfarers All ~

Wayfarers All ~

The dictionary and Wikipedia tell us that a Wayfarer is: "A person who travels by foot. A person who travels from place to place, often on foot." 

The Wayfarer is the archetype of The Fool in the Ryder-Waite Tarot. It is the energy of new beginnings, of taking sacred steps with an artisanal blend of irreverent reverence. The archetype evokes the feelings of pilgrimage. Perhaps the Hero's Journey, which has been 'THE' model for the last cycle has finally begun to lose its juice. It does seem we are being invited to not only walk new paths but to navigate from entirely new premises wherein the 'paths' form under our feet.

The Subtle Persuasion of Dissonance ~

The Subtle Persuasion of Dissonance ~

A friend once said to me, "The harmony you want in relationship doesn't exist." I grinned at her, while everything in me disagreed. I know that harmony. I know it through and through.

Dissonance is not meant to be something we accustom ourselves to or learn to like. Dissonance is a call to set our sights higher. It is the pre-performance signal from the concertmaster to tune up.

Full Moon ~ Saturday Night

Full Moon ~ Saturday Night

The title of this blog is taken from an episode of the TV series, ER. Why? I don't remember anything but the opening scene. A very tall 'patient' stood up in the examining room in the ER and went bashing about the place with the gurney he was brought in on still strapped to his body. The actor was a friend of mine and I remember thinking how much fun it must have been to act out all that angst and frustration and to smash things about with no karma attached.

Full moons bring up these feelings. This one is bringing up that stuff the lotus leaves behind as it climbs into the light.

Let's Talk Manipulation & Manifesting ~

Let's Talk Manipulation & Manifesting ~

My Teacher once said...well, actually, he said it on a fairly regular basis for awhile... "When you can come to me and tell me 'I no longer manipulate to live', we will be able to have a real conversation about light." He continued with "...humans manipulate to live..." then he told a story to illustrate. He was a master storyteller.

Here is one such story.
