Posts Tagged ‘Deer Medicine’

Coming down from last week’s Full Beaver Moon and industrious productivity –
Perhaps leaves a feeling of energetic loss right about now

So many changes on our planet today
As one world dies another is being born

Might as well let the energy of Deer gently guide us through
these transformative transitions to feel safe in this unknown darkness

Look back at the time of Buddha for a moment . . .

Did he beat up on himself for any mistakes he might have made
after his legendary first teaching among deer in a park?

Meditation on Deer heightens sensitivity to the key of inner peace
Nature inspires us to unplug from emotional entanglements with life’s circumstances

Turn off the seductive technological buzz of what’s wrong in the world for a spell
And get outside and play and connect with the natural environment around you

Breathe in a deer’s gentle gaze after taking a cool drink from a crystalline stream
Then breathe out any negative energies that need to leave your being

Remember when our ancestors ventured out on spiritual hunts into the wild
where they followed Deer and were lured to mysterious adventures

Back then, there was an ancient wisdom in the power in letting go

What are you thankful for and what do you need to release and let go of?

Time to hear the crackle of conversational boundaries with others
and sit with that in discernment from your own inner thoughts and perceptions

After all, other people’s opinions really are not my business
and if I listen to their attached emotions then I will likely feel less lonely –
because I will realize that I am a part of a domestic partnership of shared humanity

Imagine all of us building a New Earth together by pouring a
practical foundation of empathy, gentleness or compassion for one another

Onward up the trails,

A Full Cold Moon rests deeply within our bones
Sitting along the horizon more than other Full Moons today
Highlighting shorter days and longer nights

What are you thankful for and what do you need to release and let go of?

May Deer’s energetic medicinal teachings of grace, loveliness and sensitivity
Gently guide us through open fields of ceremonial tribal rituals

Do you need more beauty in your life?

Take in a deep breath of cold wind
and then exhale a warm and caring summer breeze

Remember when Buddha first taught in a deer park?

Tis the season for Divine communion and venturing out into new adventures
Blend in like Deer by never following the same trail twice
Good medicine for plasticity of the mind
May your sacred space lead you to new frontiers every time you meditate

Do you need to develop self-discipline, consistency and concentration?

We are embarking toward peaking darkness
Climaxing on forthcoming Winter Solstice

Come on down into our souls ladies and gentlemen
while listening to attached emotions of those in your orbit
Inspiration to develop keen hearing and discernment
through heightened sense of smell

Are you paying attention to your inner thoughts and perceptions?

Meditation on an anything is possible mantra is an optimistic thought
Great Spirit is calling us from the top of Sacred Mountain
Use our power of being soft and gentle like water to inundate
even the archetypal monster of fear that wants to block us from
our Divine crystalline souls

Today’s monster of fear includes systemically connected
climate catastrophe, rural poverty,
starvation and food and water wars among other looming disasters
But so are the solutions to weather these demons
in sustainable ways that are in alignment with Nature

Are you or others trying to force things?

Make love not war with the devilish fashion of negative thinking
Strike a chord of unconditional love rather than
getting strung-out on attachments that aren’t music to our ears

Are you being too critical and uncaring of yourself?

Remember to stick to the facts
When speaking your truth
But please be careful not careless with your whispers
Sometimes, silence is a more powerful form of intimate communication

Do you need to cultivate more empathy, gentleness or compassion for others?

Movers and shakers must compassionately enact the political will to
tip the scale in the right direction toward
a more effective transition into a New Age and Paradigm
This process awakens when elected officials serve the overwhelming majority by
promoting the “general welfare” of our global tribe

Nobody is inferior or superior to another
We are all cut from the same cloth
Merely different shades and statures on an unfolding tapestry

Our Mother is getting hotter and it is time to cool it now yo

At the end of the day . . .
Regardless of classification
We are all The Color of Water

See you further on up the trails,

Ari
