Posts Tagged ‘Death and Rebirth’

A Full Snow Moon arrives earlier than usual this year . . .

This Full Moon is also a Total Lunar Eclipse
Its energies, like the NFL/Super Bowl hype is performance enhanced!

The Imbolc, or the halfway point between Winter and Spring
also arrives this week, along with Groundhog Day

Our days are getting longer, and light/dark will be
equal again by the Spring Equinox in March

May the spiritual powers of Groundhog’s consciousness
awaken a death without dying experience

Although wearing masks is a natural part of being human,
living authentically means coming out of hibernation . . .

Time to come above ground and leave our shadow selves behind . . .
A Full Moonshine is a revelation into our Higher Selves

Digging deeper into our souls revisits lessons from past selves and before lives
What do those lessons have to teach you in the here and now?

See you further up the trails,

Bear Medicine represents introspection
Shy unless provoked – gentle giants are they

Meditation on Bear reminds us of the wisdom that
Truth is sweet like honey
Setting us free

Do you need to venture deep within yourself and
draw on your instinctive powers or other natural resources?

Our inner lights are fading yin-ward into the shades of waning Full Moon
Standing in the space of knowing is a marketing free zone
When we enter the center of a circle, there is nobody to convince or sway

Are your judgments off-center?

Do you remember when the stock exchange crashed
and the wealthiest Americans began paying around a 90% tax rate?

Meditation on the Taoist idea of investing in loss reveals
A Bear market knows the time is now to let our
Bullish and expansive material emphasis go into hibernation
We venture closer to the dark night of Winter Solstice

Now is the time to let our greed and arrogance rest in peace

There is a natural impetus to come back down to earth right now
in our relationships with one another, her creatures and our planet.

A more sustainable and equitable way to live wants to express itself

The more the empire tightens its controlling grip
the more unwanted disorder falls through its cracks
and the more painful this process will be

We set our souls free from feeling trapped in our physical bodies
By knowing we are all created in the image of Creator

We bear witness to the death of the illusion of the material reality
Entanglement with form relaxes by
letting go of our sense of expectation and outcome

Do you need to withdraw from the ways of the world for a spell?
Or do you need to come out of your cave and be more social?

We become pregnant with ideas during dimming lights
Dreaming of planted seeds growing in the underground basement of our souls

Spring Equinox on horizon signifies
a rebirth with arrival of budding Spring Eclipse Season
Cubs want to come out and play

All we need is patience to think before we speak
Being open-heartedly inquisitive in our politics of living
Cultivates plasticity of the mind
Revolutionary zeal without the hate
Loving ourselves is loving our planet

Are you using your helping abilities properly?

Prayer is an active, yang-masculine way of stating our intention for
manifesting and expanding – like sending a message out to the Universe.
Meditation is a receptive, yin-feminine state for
contracting and welcoming messages from our
subconscious and unconscious faculties.

We are all an embodiment of masculine and feminine energies
designed for walking with one foot in spirit and one foot in ground

Edgy dark magicians are only able to pull the wool over
us as long as we buy into the hellish nightmare that we are separate from God

But Christ was an embodiment that shed light on a way and truth
reflecting the Kingdom of Heaven as an intrinsic state of Being
Happiness will not come about by the objects of our affection

Do you believe in your capacity to quiet your mind and
receive solution-focused messages from that stillness?
Can you hear your inner voice speaking to you through the sound of silence?

Our treatment of bears mirrors how serious we are about
the preservation of our environment and natural resources
Reminding us of the possibility that bears, humans
and all God’s creatures can live together in harmony

After this latest American election cycle – beyond the cheers and jeers
of preferred or unwanted outcome
Are you seeing the good deep within all situations?

Gazing through a lens of a shamanic death of old self
We look forward to a rebirth with fresh new perceptual eyes

Are you using your talents to the fullest?

Facing our fears – even in our darkest hours
Beneath the deep lies a beacon of light illuminating the shadows of our souls

Are you working your orientation in the positive?

Remember hanging upside down on playground equipment of yesteryear?
A return to childhood innocence
and hidden caverns of unexplored Self are born unto us

Letting go of old habitual patterns of thoughts, feelings and behavior
Is a funeral procession that leads to a surprise birthday parade of novelty

Are you letting your dreams pass you by?

We are responsible for the business of envisioning seven generations ahead because we are the ones we are waiting for

Remember when smallpox was intentionally distributed to our
Native American brothers and sisters?
Oh rats, what about the European black plague?
And today we are hearing about a bloody red scare named Ebola

But facing our fears head on is less scary in long run than
identification with “better the devil you know” programming

Be mindful to give peace a chance amidst fascist undertones
among friends that are typically liberal-minded otherwise
Religion is as religion does

May we remember that at their core,
religions are inspired by Divine expression
Flowering snowball effect rippling through our mass consciousness

Changing leaves are eclipsing us in the Autumn air
Old bedtime stories are falling back
Birthing into novel ways of co-authoring our world

Right now, even a soliloquy is becoming a grand performance
Embodying our dreams and visions opens portals to Universal awakenings

Hearing echos of good vibrations amplifies ring tones of optimistic thoughts

Taking a deep breath of cosmic vastness illuminates

empathic heartfelt connections with our expanding and retracting Nature

Leaving behind a playfully light-hearted
and healthy sense of detachment in our wake

Breathe in fresh air to levy floods of stress and tension

Grandmother Spider weaves creative energetic designs of
Inner Peace into our outer world

Are you using your creative opportunities?

Figure 8 body symbolizes infinite possibilities
Try not to get caught up in an illusionary web of fate
Into this world of 10,000 things

Are you spinning your dreams into waking reality?

Sail in multidimensional seas without getting shipwrecked
Or forgetting where you are on the map

Transcend Karma by rising above polarizing viewpoints
Rather than getting eaten alive by fears and limitations.

Got impasse?
Allow for alternative solutions
While paying attention to opportunities along the trail’s edge

We are Infinite beings
See the wide open field of Divine Plan
Know the mysteries of the past, how they impact our future within living moments
While keeping your footing and handing off burdens that aren’t yours to carry

Dancing gracefully with balanced steps within the center of the circle
Without getting trapped in robotic autopilot
Or lost in left brain miscalculated Mercury Retrograde Twilight Zones

Are you following through with a creative artistic outlet?

Picture clouds to shift inner landscapes to float with changing weather fronts

Are you feeling entangled in what you have woven?

Increasing intensities during Autumnal Eclipse Season shine light on soul

An impetus to release old mental tapes and programming
that box in and dim a soul intended for expansion

Picture a waterfall and effortlessly let stream of thoughts flow in right direction

So that we can shift into gear of colorful New Earth

Realize the death of your old self is merely a shedding of dead skin
Facing our fears of an unknown rebirth head on is less scary than anxious avoidance

With a Hunter’s Full Moon of Dead Leaves
We leave behind our fears of hidden realms
And open up to entertaining divergent viewpoints with curiosity and warmth

Are you feeling depressed about living your life in the way that feels
programmed by external forces –
as dictated by society, family, friends and peers?

Do you want to live in alignment with your own soul’s purpose?

Do you feel that you suffer from the “disease to please” –
Pressured to fill a need for someone else out of a sense of duty and sacrifice?

If not now then when will master pretenders untangle from
this illusionary web and get wise to this act?

It is safe to turn inward for radical self-examination . . .
Watching what arrives from what once upon a time was submerged –
with a patient and kind heartfelt lens.

In our letting go of control and rigid attachment to expectations –
We open up to abundant Universal surprise birthday parties.

Robin Williams’ unexpected death is a sad reminder . . .
The knife of suicide cuts a deep wound into dark caverns of our psyches.
It is a terribly tragic loss that shakes our foundation.

Suicide is wickedly confusing to a lost soul with
devastating unintended consequences.
But it is not a preferred exit strategy.
Avoiding our pain leads to more suffering.

With meditation we learn to just sit with what is . . .
Rather than exiting with anger and denial.

Physically ending a hellish inner state of consciousness
is not a cease-fire on our souls.
We must rise up from the ashes of our inner demons
Summoning our “better angels.”

As the old saying goes –
Lessons will continue to revisit us until learned . . .
Whether in this life or the next.

Mother once said depression is like a storm that you ride out
without knowing where it will take you.

The cosmetics of our modern world will never fill our soulful appetites
like the Light of Consciousness.

We have discussed the relationship between brother order and sister chaos –
Formless energies awakening into our world of form.
Learning to co-exist in harmony is best medicine.

Out on the streets, jungleland takes root.
A lethal weapon meets arrested development . . .
When will our world’s movers and shakers open up a level playing field
by embracing our diversity within unity?

Remember that in every breath we take . . .
We witness a death and rebirth.

See you further on down the trails,

Ari
