Sealing The Deal in a New Year Ahead

Take the plunge with Seal into the darker depths of the ocean . . .
Welcome a vortex of primal creative waters pouring into our souls

A New Moon arrives on January 16th –
Let these energies be a catalyst for the waves of new year energies in Nature

A Chinese-Lunar New Year of the Dog rolls in about a month after that . . .
Time to build empathy in our heads and hearts for human shortcomings

Rising above the surface of a world of madness,
breathes in fresh air into suffocating old life support systems

Something new and different is waiting to be born into our collective consciousness

Analysis paralysis is like Groundhog Day revisited –
you get what you are, albeit aggravated by
recurring disappointments and let downs

Sometimes, you just got to flip the script and let the chips fall where they may
Tomorrow never knows where the winds of change might blow

So, if global markets tank, and sure thing predictions
were to fade away into dark nights . . .

What good would it do for you to stress out and worry about it?

We have been programmed to fear the unknown and what is uncertain
We have all been subject to systemic propagandizing
about the better the devil you know kind of memes . . .

Is that so?

Letting go of control issues is good for personal empowerment!
Surrendering to the will of the Universe reawaken a renewed sense of choice

What creative new envisioning to you have in your mirror of your mind?

Reflecting Back and Looking Ahead

A Western New Year approaches, as does a
Full Wolf Moon at the beginning of January . . .

Let us heed the echoes of Wolf’s heartbeat!
Tracking into February, comes the arrival of the Chinese/Lunar New Year of the Dog

Meditate on the spiritual energy of Dog to walk into new energies –
that awakens pathways into a deeper compassion for all of humanity,
in spite of our human shortcomings that bubble up in our wake . . .

Consider taking your repeated exposure to your:

hate-oriented images of Donald Trump, a miserly Wall Street,
reptilian minded friends in Congress
(that metaphorically represent an obsessive, manipulative, controlling, and
down right abusive dying old world power structure that pits us against one another)

And replacing them instead:

With new pictures of Love and Light!
At the end of the day, that’s how we disarm the Beast as within, so without

Let us heed the call to scale back the toxicity of a dog eat dog mentality,
and seductive militaristic fantasies of a global fascist state

Not Israel, nor any other single nation-state should be designated as an
offshore base or be given preferential capital for global supremacy!

We should all be getting the message of oneness,
and equal opportunity in a multi-polar new world!

Everyone’s intrinsic talents should be
cultivated and developed to their fullest potential

But not at the expense of stepping on someone else who falls through the cracks!

Violence, and security systems that build walls that prohibit freedom of speech,
Should be examined with a reflective, and heartfelt intellectual examination . . .

Our world, and one’s personal spiritual evolution depends on
self-reflection, and forward free-thinking!

May this New Year bring you much wellness, inner joy, following your bliss,
a relaxation on ego-driven emotional reactions, and a forgiving attitude
to inspire our planet, and universal consciousness!

Moving Further Into The Spirit Of The Season and Coaxing Back The Light

Tomorrow is the Winter Solstice . . .

It is the darkest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere

The Holiday season is upon us . . .
Merriment and festive spirits are in the air

It is a good time to come down into our souls and gather with family and friends

But darker days, and mixed-feelings come on strong
that are not always easy to make friends with

In your inner conversations with yourself, try to be gentle on yourself . . .
It is a gift to have a forgiving attitude about your humanity and imperfections –
(and the humanity and imperfections of others)

Being in that space calms down self-inflicted suffering!

Being present with yourself and others
is a far greater gift than getting sucked in to the consumerist
drive to outdo each other with manicĀ striving to buy the perfect gifts

Notice how shopping and work are can easily
become culturally sanctioned addictions

Might as well hit the pause button, take a step back, and
take in the spiritual meaning behind this time of year

Allowing yourself to receive love and be compassionate
is a blessing that is shared by all in everyday exchanges

Meditate on healthy giving and receiving during this time of year especially
Celebrate the rising light and waning dark as it unfolds on Nature’s cycle

There will be a Full Wolf Moon on the first day of the Western New Year
May we discover new tracks into a new world

Mountain Lion Closes In On The Darkest Day Of The Year

Mountain Lion is a powerful silent leader
Her strong feminine energy guides us into the darker caverns of our souls

Winter Solstice sheds its light on our world by reflecting
the darkest day of the year in the North

Our friends in the South will celebrate peak light
on their Summer Solstice

Darker emotions are front and center right now
as are dark edges of an old world, and yesterday’s ghosts

But even in our darkest hour, there is a beacon of light
Use it as a torch to examine your self with mindful/heartfelt love

Heaven, like Hell is a state of consciousness
It is your choice whichever inner/outer world you choose to focus on

And whichever dimension you focus on, will be what reflects back to you
to reinforce the mind-set that you keep

Cats reflect mystery, much like the ways of our Universe
Mediation on Mountain Lion can help us see in the dark without fear

Learning to be human is not easy
But if we relax our fears, and follow their tracks toward love

Our experience here becomes more joyous, and light-hearted
This is a good time of year to come down into your souls

The dinosaurs of an old world feel entitled to keep their way of life
There are winners and losers, and you get what you deserve

But there is a Golden Age New World of Aquarius
that sees through we consciousness eyes of oneness and unity

Diversity is respected and appreciated here in this vibration

Those in Hell will reach out their hands to bring you down
They are not reaching out to you for a leg up

Picture them in love and light and let them go
Focus on gratitude for everything – even tragic circumstances

Doing so will facilitate releasing old demons into the fire
and blaze new angelic trails toward healing

A Crow’s View

When I picture Crow, I notice magic and mystery unveiled in everyday life . . .

Ordinary moments that typically appear as mundane, boring or dull
are revealed as extraordinary with opening spiritual eyes . . .

And when contemplating Mercury in Retrograde, fake news,
and general feelings of living in the Twilight Zone . . .

It seems like it is getting harder to discern fact from fiction,
what’s real, and what’s fantasy

We all have to find balance between our heads and hearts
Probably a good time to relax into our intuitive side right now for clarity . . .

Otherwise, trying to find truth through logic
and rational thought processes might drive you nuts

Like the recent tax cut proposals, movement to impeach Trump,
and the powers that be pounding war drums to distract us
from what’s really going on behind the scenes

I think of Lao Tzu when he spoke of the boasting of thieves after a looting . . .

Where did the saying come from that says power corrupts
but absolute power corrupts absolutely?

Does this belief stem from a projection by those who have
never experienced the dimension of
standing in an authentic position of personal authority?

Yeah, darker days might be getting you down . . .

But if you can look at the bright side, remember that we will start
coaxing back the light after the Winter Solstice on December 21

A Bear of a Winter is On Its Way

A Full Cold Moon comes out of its Bear cave this Sunday . . .

Dimming lights are slowing us down
Winter is coming soon with Winter Solstice later this month

Mercury in Retrograde amplifies darker days ahead
Shadows of old selves are shedding light onto your awakening new self

Do you see reflections of who you used to be into your mirror today?

Are they aspects of your soul revisiting you to help you
transition into a new season in your consciousness?

See this reflection as inspiration to become the changing you
and let yourself let go of who you were in relation to yourself and others

Picture yourself becoming the new self that you want to see in the world
Imagine a New Earth flowering in your Dreamtime . . .

When you acknowledge that we live in a Matrix that has programmed us with
repetitive and controlling old mental tapes . . .

We open up to imagining ourselves creating novel stories

There is a collective belief that the Earth is a hellish nightmare,
with winners and losers, that’s just the way it was, is and always will be

But Bear reminds us that Life should be sweet like honey!

We are equipped to Intuit wisdom from the Heavens of the Dreamtime
to bring it back into our material world with the grounding power
of wise old trees with roots reaching deep into the Earth . . .

In this space, we are building a new dream for ourselves and our planet!

Thanksgiving Revisited

Thanksgiving is a popular holiday in modern world American tradition
There are strong connections to turkeys . . .

Our ancestors also shared spiritual blessings with Turkey energy

Whether it’s this national holiday, or just another day like any other . . .

The preludes and epilogues surrounding these events
can be challenging scripts to co-author,
especially when dysfunctional relationship situations
are brought to the table!

But if you awaken to an attitude of gratitude for whatever
brilliantly disguised blessings might clandestinely otherwise fly below
tree lines without deeper examination . . .

Perhaps you will give yourself permission to lighten up your energy field
by not taking someone else’s apparent insanity personally

There is personal freedom in realizing that whatever you eat or do not eat,
there is violence in every breath you take

For even in breathing, there is taking life to sustain life

While traversing into the dark night of our souls . . .

We might as well lighten up our energy fields in the spirit
of feathering away any negative energies that try to seduce us into gobbling up
obsessions of feeling like dirty birds with sick stomachs of guilt and shame

In spite of close encounters of painful tragedies that land in everyday spaces . . .
Listen carefully to echoes of celestial music that sing your soul down to Earth

Let Turkey’s spiritual eyes inspire you to fee thankful for all forms of abundance!

It’s good to notice the moments of their arrival
landing in your field of consciousness this week

We are a World of Shared Blessings Turkey

Sunlight is dimming now . . .

Darker days, and current events on our planet today
want to seduce us into getting boxed into downward doomsday
mindsets that fade spirits into dark edges

Shadowy geopolitical turmoil cloud
the light at the end of the tunnel

Sometimes, the ghosts of yesteryear resurrect their haunting
Try to look upon past relationship dysfunctions with clear eyes
so that you can see from a new vantage point

Like a dying relationship, the death of the leaves
breathes in the possibility of new life . . .

Meditate on the new beginnings of a new moon

Train yourself to climb the dunesĀ one step, one breath,
and one moment along the sands of time . . .

All we have is right now . . .
You can choose dive into the depths of your soul’s waters

Close your physical eyes for a moment, and open your spiritual eye to
see yourself opening up to abundance . . .

Say, “I am calm, I am relaxed, I am Divine Nature!”

Like our spiritual ancestors before . . .

Picture a turkey to ward off the negative energies that
want to sap your energy field . . .

When each one of us is awakening to the light of inner peace,
we are simultaneously becoming the change we want to see in the world

Just as Hell is a state of consciousness,
so too is the Heaven of a New Earth

Walk into your Divine Nature to witness the revelation
of a new dimension, while experiencing a vibrational shift . . .

Peering Into Our Spirituality With Owl

Owl peers into dark nights with the light of empathic vision . . .

What mysteries will Owl shed light on as we move toward
the darkest day on Earth upon the arrival of the Winter Solstice in December?

Death of old selves, and old ways are waning like nature’s light

It’s hard to say good-bye to those aspects of ourselves, or
our loved ones that have passed, along with the ghosts of yesteryear

When the rains are pouring, and you feel lost and alone . . .
Remember a rainbow’s arrival reflects color back onto your soul

On the global-political front, what secrets will be revealed
about historically buried information regarding JFK’s assassination?

Does any of this news sound foreign, alien or out of this world?
But then again, aren’t we trying on new masks during new normal shape-shifting?

Like in a family affected by mental illness and addiction . . .
The metaphorical Elephant in the Room is partially exposed by President Trump

Does he really want to relax the secretive governance
of the Military-Industrial Complex?

Or are his motivations to expose Establishment suppressions
merely a platform to inflate his already bloated narcissism?

What does in the name of National Security really mean?

Is not the spirit of America’s political roots of We The People
a challenge to protecting the status quo of the minority of the opulent?

Just because you’ve made it to the top, doesn’t mean you forget
who helped bring you to the perch of your solid goal position!

Equal access information is perceived as a threat by the powers that be
that deliver informational food for mass consumption

A seductive mind-set that believes people are inherently bad,
and need to be controlled could stand to remember approaching situations
with openness, trust and an authentically heartfelt solution-focused perspectives!

In this space, apocalyptic, doomsday self-fulfilling prophecies
are easily target marketed into becoming accurate predictions

Seeing With the Detailed Precision of Mouse

If you don’t pay attention to the details,
and you buy into the better the devil you know way of living . . .

Then it will be impossible to see the change you want in the world,
and you will probably have a hard time not getting lost in its madness

But it is true that our world has ripened more than
any other season for purification

Fall is here, leaves are changing,
and Nature’s cycle of death is in the air

A Full Harvest Moon shines on the skies on Thursday . . .

Sadly, another mass shooting tragically took place in Las Vegas earlier in the week,
and iconic rocker Tom Petty died unexpectedly

These tragic events bring our feelings of grief and loss to the surface,
as does the natural movement yinward during this time of year

Chaos also awakens our fears, and sobers us up to our vulnerability

Beneath the headlines, what does the location of this latest
calculated and methodical act of violence
have to say to us about the times we are living in?

Let us not forget the metaphor of people not knowing how to emote . . .

Can we feel empathy for their sense of not fitting in,
belonging, or rage against the rising tide of the
Military-Industrial Complex that President Eisenhower warned us against?

Are we really shocked that people are finding more heated ways
to ignite the tinder-boxed system into leveling itself –
even if their desired outcome is disruptive, disrespectful,
and without regard for consequence?

Of course, violence begets more violence – which is why the ends
justifying the means kind of thinking has never been a sustainable solution

It’s kind of like taking your own life, or the life of another

In this space, your soul is in a dark place,
and becomes even more lost in an
even darker place after following this path

People who have been brainwashed to believe in the
savior complex of Martyrdom are carrying a heavy cross

The truth is you have to lay it down,
and surrender to the Divine Will of the Universe to truly be free

It makes too much sense to do it more gracefully,
peacefully, and non-violently

We need a more equitable global marketplace that invests in the human factor,
our planet, and the other creatures that live with Her

And the so-called “by any means necessary” mantra of facsism on the
right and left political extremes

Forgets the details of remembering to breathe in
the clean, fresh air of inner peace . . .
