Posts Tagged ‘Butterfly’

A Full Strawberry Moon is rising in our skies this week . . .

Communicative powers of Butterfly’s sociability can empower
you speak your truth with a floating gentleness

Look at how butterflies flap their wings effortlessly . . .
How do they inspire a Tsunami or travel over 2000 miles?

Let the fruits of this Strawberry Full Moon and Butterfly
Inspire you to remember a playful, light-hearted sense of detachment
in your soulful experiences, while awakening the energy of a mythical quest

Like shorelines, dusk, and dawn,
we are living in transformational tides of transition . . .

The Age of Aquarius has shifted from winking and blinking into a
high-octane revelation of a New World arriving full steam ahead . . .

But the Old Guard is afraid to let go of their grip on their view
that Earth is a playground for an entitled few with powers of position

Climate Change, Weapons of Mass Destruction, and puppet masters
Sound the alarm, and hit the panic button for many

There is a reality to buying into an apocalyptic mind-set!

But choosing to dig deep and focus on the reality of inner peace
will ease the heavy burden your soul might carry

Don’t give up your power by reinforcing your fears!

Remember we are all multidimensional beings that have come here
to lighten up our planetary consciousness and universe throughout

Heaven and Earth are co-mingling together,
as movement into we consciousness grows stronger every day

Later this month, Summer Solstice gives us peak power of sunlight
Use the intensity of yang’s masculinity to expand your soul’s awareness . . .

Make friends with the truth that you are one with everything . . .
Even the primitive, reptilian minded, fighting-oriented Powers That Be

You become the change you want to see in the world when you
scuba dive beneath the surface illusion that
we are separated and disconnected from each other

Witness the communion between your inner and outer space!

Till we meet again at next week’s trail head,

Ari

Butterfly effect flutters its wings o’er the Summer Solstice . . .
Sunlight peaks on this seasonal summit.
This is a time for manifestation.

Receptive feminine begins increasing –
Her energetic flow during Yin’s subtle awakening.
In order to nurture our expansion –
Remember open-hearted intimacy.

The converse is true in the Southern Hemisphere –
Where dark nights dominate the light of day . . .

Try to soften defensive fortresses that once provided a sense of security.
In order to expand, may we allow ourselves
to receive love from nurturing flocks.

Expansion asserts that we come out of our protective shells,
man up and relax into the feedback of loved ones that push our edges –
While softening our boarders.

More grist for the mill . . .

With air and mind – we can change our thoughts and change our lives . . .
Become the change you want to see in the world.

What stage of transformation are you in right now?
Nature is impermanent and cyclical.
And so it is with our own transformational process . . .

The only constant is change!

Am I in the egg stage of a thought or idea?
Am I in the larva stage where its time to make a decision?
Am I in the cocoon stage trying to bring into material reality?
Am I in the birth stage of sharing my intellectual property?

Speaking freely comes with great responsibility –
Thinking before speaking . . .
Perceiving the energy behind our words is an alternative story.
Do you hear the echos of attached emotions before their cadence is called?

Hitting musical high notes that resonate in our collective soul.
Gently strumming the instrumental human voice with compassionate care.

Our reality is changing –
An old world dying . . .
A New Age budding –

Might as well say yes to the situation at hand . . .
Given that what we resist persists.
The power of love transcends . . .
Enticements of fantasy outcomes through forceful means.

See you further on down the trails,

After passing the peak of Yang-Masculine energy of yesterday’s Summer Solstice, our spirits climaxed in that Light. Now we Turtle along Yinward with the mysterious rising of Dark-Feminine energy, though we often think of summer as outward growth and being playfully social like Butterfly. We have discussed before in this blog that every moment carries a death and a rebirth. In the sense that Butterfly is symbolic of transformation, we can open up our consciousness to the idea of Reincarnation by raising our awareness. From this vantage point, we can expand our idea of Reincarnation to include past lives and future lives beyond this physical lifetime. This is somewhat akin to genetic memory. We see that we are multidimensional spiritual beings having human experiences. Today, we understand that we all have star-dust encoded in our DNA. Given that the double helix looks like a figure 8 (the sign of infinity), meditation on that helps us wake-up to creating ourselves anew and waking up to the realm of possibility. If our taste buds change and bodies change every seven years, then why resist this process with devilishly fixed ideas?

We have recorded and reported stories of our connection to the cosmos in our archives. In the defended position of “national security”, the truth about our Universal brothers and sisters has been kept hidden from us. Regardless of what you believe, our reality is that we are living in a time where the existence of UFO’s and extraterrestrials lives within our collective consciousness, like the proverbial “elephant in the room” within a family affected by addiction. It really isn’t about being “out there” or “far out”–what matters is what we allow ourselves to integrate into our personal worldview. When the veils thin, will we welcome them into our Earth family with open arms? It appears that our Imperial Leadership Team feels entitled and justified in maintaining a top-down, “rule by few” idea about governing the business of our Planet. Basically, the old idea says that the reality of our Universal brothers and sisters should be kept hidden from us by keeping us in the dark, like Plato’s Cave. Why not shed light on the truth about their relationship with our human family? But the Majority position prefers to go unexamined. Come on guys, it is time to come out of the closet and let your light shine too.

We witnessed this nuance play out when a news story revealed that a woman was fired from her job in the corporate media for inadvertently allowing a Freudian slip of “sex” to come out of her mouth. Really? The advertising industry makes an intentional killing by selling sex through overt and covert advertising campaigns to push products on us by tapping in to our primal sexual urges, drives and instincts. Was Bill Clinton fired (fired from what) for calling President Obama a “wuss” recently? Isn’t that like dropping the “n-bomb”, slick Willie? Doesn’t it feel like our esteemed Leadership holds a fixed view of themselves as above the laws they craft for us to follow? If we are expected to be held accountable for our actions, why are they tax-exempt from paying our money down? Do they not realize that their actions speak louder than words and that modeling is the most powerful form of teaching? I don’t know what kind of black sorcery “moderate Republican” Bill Clinton and his Elitist friends in the Empire are practicing, but I know their allegiance to an old paradigm is dying. It seems like they are hellbent on manifesting a self-fulfilling prophecy of leading the cavalry to the “eve of destruction”. But “issues with intimacy” will do that and we all have our part to do in transforming our intimacy so within, as without. Love is the answer. We all need to wake up to that in these dangerous times by moving further away from the force of fear and closer to the power of love. May we remember the saying, “let go and let God”.

Summer is a hot time for manifestation. It is always wise to remember gratitude. When we carry an “attitude of gratitude” we are in alignment with Nature and Great Spirit. Hanging out in the energy field of manipulation and power and control is bad medicine for transcending Karma, the law of cause and effect. At the end of the day, Karma revisits and grounds you as it has been asked to do, whether realized or not. Developmentally, humanity is at a crossroads. On the one hand, we have the old world idea that membership has its privileges. This idea believes that our Planet is a playground that should be exploited for maximum economic profit for a minority of benefactors and trashed accordingly. This internally polluted idea reflects in the nightmare that we have invested in and bought into. Any challenge to this paradigm has been met with both subtle and provocative force to control against transformation. The other idea that is awakening and cross-pollinating our consciousness is that we are all One, albeit colorful and diverse expressions of that Oneness. What we do to the self, we do to the other. Our actions have consequences, some of them unintended. If a Butterfly flaps its wings, this can affect Climate Change. If a Butterfly flitting about could potentially create a ripple effect for a Tsunami, then imagine what we are capable of. Meditation on Butterfly is good medicine to change ourselves from the inside out. When we change the way we look at something, what we look at changes and we become the change we want to see in the world. There is a reality to the perception of doom and gloom. But there is also a reality to Butterfly opening up our Hearts to smile! If you can hold the tension of those opposites, just make a conscious choice to focus on the “Chi” of Butterfly! Spiritually, this is how we transform lead into gold through inner alchemy. We elevate our consciousness by realizing that spirit literally matters.

I remember an encounter I had the last weekend with a black and gold-colored butterfly.  Admittedly, I noticed my lower chakras fleetingly take flight in vibrating with jealousy, envy and some heaviness as I watched this spirited winged creature’s ability to flit about gleefully, while tasting with its hands and feet.  But then I recollected my choice to stay away from overindulging in getting stuck in the mud by basking in these emotions.  By allowing ourselves to be informed by our lower self, we become equipped to move forward by opening up to the feeling of joy that butterfly medicine conjures up internally.  However, it can be tempting to find clever ways to bypass this inner space, with particular sensitivity to the ego and/or intellect’s ability to build self-protective fortresses.  Energetically, butterfly is good reminder that it is possible to carry a playful, light-hearted sense of detachment in getting the job done.  In spite of their heavy responsibility of cross-pollinating the planet while spreading the love, butterfly shows us that it is possible find their energy within our human shell in real-time.  Is anyone else out there mesmerized by butterflies sociability and memo to self that asks thyself, where am I on the map of consciousness?  On the personal front, when digesting this question, perhaps some delicious food for thought would be to ask yourself what developmental stage you are currently in.  Are you in the egg stage of an idea (beginning), the larva stage (manifestation), the cocoon stage (program development) and/or the final stage (transformation)?  When there is work to do and I need to lighten up, I try to remember to picture butterflies kissing a garden variety of flowers within my being.

On the national and global front, there are potential storms brewing and things are heating up.  Here in the USA, we have modern laws that are somewhat akin to Jim Crow of yesteryear.  In Florida and other states in the nation throughout, we have the Stand Your Ground Law that basically says shoot first and ask questions second.  All republicans and however many democrats failed to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act, which simply attempts to level the playing field of making a livable wage for all working folks.  Does “my country tis of thee” remember that many of the lawyers, politicians and police were cloaked behind white robes and burning crosses by night?  Who payin’ you?  But there is a new hope . . . US Representative John Kline of Michigan supports the Loan Forgiveness Act of 2012, which tries to alleviate the financial burden that many college students are facing.  And Burger King, Wendy’s, McDonald’s and Safeway have committed to eliminating gestation crates from their supply chains.  The country is divided and “the line it is drawn and the curse it is cast.”  In birthing into a New Age and Paradigm, we really need to move beyond fancy ego-centered rhetoric and actualize the philosophical ideals that our Founding Fathers envisioned in their Higher Selves.  If we search our collective memory, there was a time not long ago that indigenous Americans practiced something much closer to a free market, than the fundamentalist allegiance we have to maximum economic, profit-driven capitalism that liberally supports the welfare of rampant consumerism.

With butterfly energy, creativity is in the air and mental powers are active.  This time of year, I start dancing to the beat of T’ai Chi outdoors, while focusing on allowing my body to float like a butterfly without getting stung like a bee.  Readers, I don’t know about you, but I know I have learned many painful lessons from the school of hard knox.  The lesson plans from this curriculum can feel like heavy metal and reverberate like a choir of chattering monkey’s.  And though I respect the wisdom I have acquired from accessing these classroom assignments, I prefer Butterfly’s mantra that says that growth can be gentle, joyful and sweet like flowers, if only we come to our senses by allowing for it.

Stay True,

Ari
