Let's Talk Confusion and Trust ~

Let's Talk Confusion and Trust ~

Amidst all the chaos of these times, there is confusion. "Let's be clear about confusion," she says, grinning. Confusion is a state of mind, and sometimes feelings, that does not touch your essence. It has no effect whatsoever on your essential nature.

New Moon, Re-Set, Go!

New Moon, Re-Set, Go!

Have things felt oddly odd and unsettled and... {insert weird disturbances here} since the Solstice?  That has been the shake-up-and-out and those were the paws before the turbo booster. Some paws had claws, some sported fins and flippers, some had mermaid tails or other strange appendages.  The question you want answering is... WTF????  And, with all of the change, why do some things still feel stuck?

Edge-Running: The Way of Daring ~

Edge-Running: The Way of Daring ~

What is it to live life on a bit of an edge, with a bit of edginess, or to dance upon that "Razor's Edge" made famous by Somerset Maugham's book of that name? So what does edge-running really mean? It sounds as though one lives life a bit dangerously, and it can mean that, yes. The danger lies in risking how one is perceived by others, and sometimes oneself, by leaving a status quo life far behind. A life of "quiet desperation", to quote Thoreau, was never going to be mine. How about you?

Unexpected Transitions ~

Unexpected Transitions ~

What to expect from unexpected transitions? About what you'd expect. Yes, I'm joking you. Writing from a wayside café in the Highlands of Scotland, hearing the 'voices of home' in the background, I can only shake my head at the twists and turns that have brought me here.

Where is here? I truly couldn't say. Though yesterday was a bit of a clue.

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’.

Is Your Love Strong Enough?

Is Your Love Strong Enough?

What would you do if someone you love was in danger? We all think we know the answer to that, right? Something along the scale of 'whatever it takes' to 'it depends.' 

What if that someone or something was clinging to the very thing that was the cause of every trouble, every nightmarish occurrence, every hurt, and would ultimately cause the demise of your someone or something? What if the very thing they cling to is that which will pull them under?

As Awareness Opens ~

As Awareness Opens ~

As a camera aperture closes and opens to freeze-frame a moment in space-time,  so do our incarnations flow.

When the aperture opens, we perceive more than our remaining limitations. We see past the defaults, knowing them for the friends that allowed us to lead a certain kind of life. We become freedom itself.

The Path to the Stars ~

The Path to the Stars ~

As beings of light, we are ever at the ready to shed the trappings of any experience of reality, no matter how attached we might be to that experience, to journey further on our homeward path.

Exiting the more confining realities of this world has always required fortitude, courage and just plain 'huevos.' If you know what I mean. When a planetary being like our Gaia goes through such a transit, calving all the way, every being within her sphere is catapulted forward in an amplified way. We face our perceived illusions of mortality over and over again in accelerated succession.

Let's Talk ~ Living Lab ~

For the next seven years (approximate earth space-time) every being living on Gaia will participate in a vast experiment in consciousness. Source is taking over the "Gaian Experiment". What does that mean? Everything systematized, especially by the 'powers that were', is being broken down into its particles within the Great Waves of luminosity from which all things flow. Losing the poetry? All old forms are dissolving and re-forming.

We are entering the transition of transcending closed systems. This begins with ideology and cosmology; our internal and external systems of thought and of 'how things work' in the multiverse.
