Turbulence & Tantrums, Resistance and Release ~ Love is the Key

Turbulence & Tantrums, Resistance and Release ~ Love is the Key

So many of you have written to say that core pieces of your egoic programming seem to be assaulting you. One moment it can feel like drowning, or being ripped apart at the seams, or as though the more light that floods your being the more negative energies seem to surround you.

The dynamics your body learned in childhood will tell you that you must believe in your circumstances, and that, even if you deny this, you are a victim thereof. This is not so, shining ones. This is not so.

Let's Talk How It Is & What It Takes ~

Hey there. “It’s coming on Christmas” as Joni Mitchell wrote, and, as always, I do so wish there existed a river to skate away on… except that, that river lives within me now. It could live within you as well. Does, in fact. Are you aware of that? How aware? Would you like to be more aware? Or are things ok as they are… Would you like to live a life that is more than ok? You do, already, you know that. And yet…

Tommy Doesn't Know What Day it Is ~

When we realize that we don’t know what we don’t know… When we stop letting the magic die… When we value what is, over what we want to control or make things be… Maybe then. Only then…

Do you find your energies are feeling a bit worm-holed lately? Meaning that there is a transit tube/tunnel/system morphing you and your life into something/somewhere new? Me too.

What we Hear in Our Heads

What we Hear in Our Heads

A Blessed 11:11 !! Today is a portal day. The master number 11:11 is unique in its alignment.

It portends a way through.

This morning, after dreaming of dragons, I woke hearing Paul Simon’s Armistice Day in my head. Well, it is that, in some parts of the world. Armistice Day. An end to a conflict which turned out to be one of many, on a world whose human foundations are based on the energies of war.

On Being Sacred Space ~

On Being Sacred Space ~

It’s what we’re all here to be, no matter what we do.

A sacred space is an energy gateway through which we soar into becoming. As we learn to become sacred space, to honor that in our bodies/minds/awareness, the sacred creates HERself around us.

I Wake to Fish Eagles Screaming ~

I Wake to Fish Eagles Screaming ~

Soon after my arrival in the bush, I woke to the sound of Fish Eagles screaming. I threw off the covers, threw open the patio doors, and carefully stepped out, looking to see if perhaps I could catch a glimpse of their flight. No such luck, as they had not yet soared above the treeline.

What is a Divinely-Oriented Life?

What is a Divinely-Oriented Life?

What is a Divinely-oriented life? It is not what you think. I mean that quite literally. Orientation to the Source of us All is not something the human mind can accomplish.

The tibetan sand painting of the kalachakra is an example of divine orientation. Our minds will instantly try to, and want to know if, they need to emulate this structure. This is why these structures are taught! They distract the mind and seduce it into becoming an ally.

Living A Directed vs. A Dictated Life ~

Living A Directed vs. A Dictated Life ~

Expanding on last week’s topic of Exploring Identity, let’s look at the differences between a dictated life and a directed one.

A dictated life is the result of conscious or unconscious compliance with our conditioning and the ego’s demands.

A directed life, one that is directed by Essence, true consciousness, authenticity, or, in the case of those who want to be awake, Source, is different. Authentic immersion in the Infinite directs a life. Source will never, and I use that word consciously, never dictate.

Exploring Identity ~

Exploring Identity ~

Skills, talents, abilities, wisdom gained… These are the things we fear to lose when we dissolve Identity. This fear keeps us stuck in ego.

Identity is an archetypal blueprint that sets limits within which we live our lives. Here is how it works.

The Eye of the Storm ~

The Eye of the Storm ~

Hurricanes form over water. Warm air flowing over warm, tropical or sub-tropical waters can absorb enough moisture to form dense rain clouds. When enough moisture is collected over enough heat, the air involved can begin to swirl. This swirling motion turns a storm into what is called a cyclone.

What turns a cyclone into a hurricane? Velocity. In other words, what turns a storm into something potentially dangerous is acceleration.

Weathering the emotional nature of a world in transition can be a bit like weathering a storm.

Expanding Inward ~

Expanding Inward ~

Supernovae can briefly outshine entire galaxies and radiate more energy than our sun will in its entire lifetime. They're also the primary source of heavy elements in the universe. Their example is that the brightest light creates the heaviest particles of density. Duality-r-us.

What if a supernova turned inward? What then? What if the implosion threw off the heavy elements and the ensuing fusion of bonded light elements created something ~ new ~? What if that is what is happening to us right now?

Navigating By Feelings

Navigating By Feelings

How does it feel? We don't know what the 'future' is going to look like. It isn't going to happen that way. The unknown is something that our minds literally cannot cope with. Unless we have worked with some kind of mindfulness or warrior training we don't have the tools to deal with the reality of a constant state of uncertainty. Funny, that, because all of life is uncertain.
