Facing North with Lynx
We venture across space and time
Discovering hidden lost treasures
How do we allow past lives
Illuminate the shadows of the present
To set sail toward clear skies ahead?
Nature gives birth to our blueprint orientations
But we are free to make our own footprints
What has been passed on to you by your ancestors?
While tracking with our snow shoe paws
We awaken to Heavenly knowledge of Dreamtime
What secret forecasts are hiding behind the clouds?
Remember that solitude need not be a lonely experience
Are your distractions a sleep-aid to your soul promptings?
Think outside the box . . .
What solutions do you hear echoing from stillness speaking?
Do you see or hear an unseen core of truth?
Lynx medicine is akin to spiritual x-ray vision
We peer deeper into our empathic connections in relationship
What do we do with this information?
As we move further away from the Winter Solstice
Closer to Groundhog Day, Chinese-Lunar New Year and then Spring Equinox
It becomes easier to see the light at the end of the tunnel
But in this darkness, it is a good time for
watching our surfacing dark feelings with a gentle gaze
Painful as they may be, it is wise to be informed by them
Without holding onto the shores
Or becoming consumed by their emotional darkness
May we write injuries in dust, benefits in marble
It has been 20 years since my mom killed herself
Half my lifetime ago
Leaving behind so much grieving for all of us
Such a challenge digging through the dark without losing sight of the light
Hasn’t been the first time I’ve been knocked down
And it won’t be the last
But the bell I choose to listen to
Is a bell of mindfulness
When I look to the past, I live in the present, with my eye on the future
Whatever I get hit with
I’m going to keep getting back up
And you can too
Lynx is a good reminder to hold onto knowledge with watchful eyes
Knowing that sometimes silence is a higher form of honesty
Even in transparency, we respect confidentiality
Now Mercury is in retrograde
Let go of left brain, rational, logical trying to figure it all out cognitive processes
Might as well go with the flow and open up to allowing
creative, intuitive, illogical and feminine faculties
to come out and play
Are you trusting your instincts?
Open minds channel alternative pathways and novel thinking
Seeing ourselves as eternal springs with an unlimited internal well of resources
helps shift from a victim mentality toward our True soul power
Clean care and clean Love burns greener energy into our atmosphere
Feed your soul with full-bellied laughter
Let your love and light shine on by wearing a genuine heart-smile
See you further on up the trails,
