Penguin leaps out of the water and takes flight into the air
In this space, we are propelled out of our bodies . . . .
Meditation on Penguin awakens powers of dreaming lucidly
We are given access to multidimensional exploration . . .
Our souls leave behind our temples to venture deeper into
alternate states of the astral plane
Gently connect with the tides of this Full Wolf Moon to
psychically stream into your dream-team
May our spiritual wings power our vessels further
into oceanic depths of the Dreamtime
Meditation offers us safe passages for traveling inward
into the vast galaxies of our inner skies with
a safe haven anchored back in this Earth
But facing physical death is an unknown transition . . .
Losing our loved ones to death can be rough on the living
Unexpected deaths can especially leave us feeling angry,
confused, depressed and with deep sadness
Sometimes we just want to hide away from the rest of the world
We survivors are reminded of our own mortality
and feel survivor’s guilt as well as struggle with the lack of control
that we truly have for what happens to us
But we can control how we respond to these tragedies
Painful as it is to taste this bitter aspect of life –
We might as well do the best we can to lean into our feelings and be vulnerable
We are here to learn how to cope with life’s stress in the living moment
while we are still breathing
Make peace with yourself and with your loved ones who have passed on
You can help them ascend through the power of surrender and forgiveness
Get out alone in Nature and sit in the elements for a spell
If you are uncomfortable or having a hard time sitting with what is . . .
Free yourself to get down with the elements and just “let it be” . . .
This is a healthy way to loosen our entanglements with form
Doesn’t the cold chill in your bones from the wind
remind you that you are still alive?
And then isn’t the forecast of a scalding hot shower, saltwater bath or fire
something to look forward to?
Let go of that thought for a moment and just be mindful
of your surroundings and let yourself quiet down
Pretty soon, the animals will speak up and do their thing
What messages does Nature have for you to receive?
Let your inner child remember the surprise birthday party of every moment
Expectations are forgotten as exploration and discovery is your experience
May we be empowered to flex our co-creative dreaming muscles consciously –
so that we can weave them into our waking reality
We have explored how the Empire prefers to remain hidden by going unexamined
As such, we have been told a patriarchical story that
glamorize a dominant script of masculine power
But the Emperor Penguin is a good role model for redefining masculinity . . .
Showing us that Father Sun nurtures Mother Earth with loving warmth
Historically, a nurturing role has typically been ascribed to women and femininity
Penguin alters our traditional ideas of gender roles into a
New dream for humanity where we sew creative feminine threads
Woven together into a new masculine tapestry with energetic equanimity
Hope to see onward up the trails,
