Secure Footing in the Waters of Life with Blue Heron

Blue Heron swoops in this week . . .

Beltane’s arrival signals the mid-point between Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice
A New Moon comes later this week as Yang rises

Heron is a conservative tribe that inspires
aggressive self-determination and self-reliance . . .

These powerful birds tend to view themselves as king of the marsh

Their long legs remind us of our deep connection with Mother Earth
Like the roots of a wise old tree, they reflect standing firmly in the ground

We need our legs to be securely anchored in Nature’s shifting tides
so that we do not drown in Her undertow

May the Force Awaken when you breathe in through the top of your head
Let your Chi flow downward, draining from the soles of your feet
Feel your energy flow while sinking into the ground . . .

Know how to stand on your own two legs
Your intuition will tell you when to stick your neck out and snatch opportunities

But for now, just relax and allow things to happen organically

When situational factors call for a change in your game plan,
Meditation on Heron awakens the ability to readjust our perspective

Instead of needing to “figure it all out”, paralyzed by the minutia of problems
Trust the flow of the Universe to provide novel solutions to present themselves when the time is right

See you up the trails,

Ari

I am looking forward to the forthcoming arrival of my first professionally published book, Something to Chew On: Digesting Healthy Spiritual Food for the Soul in the Calendar Year Ahead. I will keep you posted regarding when it will be released to the public. This book is a collaboration of my writing and my Aunt Barbara’s artwork. I have confident faith that it will be a helpful trail guide along the path of walking meditation.
