The Return of Dragonfly And A Full Sturgeon Moon On Sunday, August 22, 2021

The Full Sturgeon Moon peaks on Sunday, August 22, 2021 at 8:02 A.M. Eastern Time. Our ancestors named this Full Moon after Sturgeon because August traditionally represented the peak seasonal catch of these mighty fish. Fish are highly sensitive creatures, and water is a powerful conductor of sound vibration. Keep in mind that humans are made up of mostly water. It is scientifically proven that we can influence our thoughts and can co-create our reality through the power of positive self talk. Might as well give our purposeful attention toward collaborative co-creative, fluid thinking over fixed, stagnant ideas. If there’s a fish that captures the expression ‘stirring the pot’, it’s Sturgeon. Given that Sturgeon have been around for over 130 million years, they reveal a survival instinct that should catch our attention, if you’ll pardon the pun.

Spiritually, Sturgeon’s ability to thrive, in spite of the many Climate Changes they have faced over millions of years, truly reflects their resiliency. Now more than ever, humans need to cultivate resiliency on our Planet today. Like Sturgeon, we have a strong survival instinct. But we could stand to build our resiliency at this juncture so that we can weather the changes in Ages we are now facing. We need to understand our interconnection with each other and all creatures from Mother Earth and the Universe. Co-regulation means that we can be in our heads and our hearts with each other in ways that both honors our diversity and recognizes our unity.

A Full Sturgeon Moon awakens the magic of color in the theater of life.

But be careful of getting caught up in your own fantasies

of turning everything you touch into gold.

True wizardry is the knowledge that eating humble pie is good food for the soul.

Follow Dragonfly’s flight plan for a magical mystery tour.

Imagine flitting about with a playful, light-hearted sense of detachment in your energy field.

Have you ever heard of the story of the Emperor’s New Clothes?

Picture a Dragonfly to add color to your Life

Flit away any burdens your soul might be carrying

You don’t have to plug truth into a computerized search engine to learn about

what is really true and real

Are you focusing on what others are telling you?

Or are you paying attention to how people make you feel on the inside?

Dragonfly inspires us to be light on the feet –

with magical colors of waning sunlight

See through illusionary smokescreens through the

laser precision eyes of a spiritual watcher

What hidden aspects of yourself want to come out into the sun and

dance in the daylight for others to see?

A Full Sturgeon Moon signals a peak seasonal catch . . .

Might as well swim with the current instead of pushing against the primordial power of water

Dragonfly breathes magic and color

into the ordinary doings of everyday life

A long time ago . . .

Dragon had the Midas touch of always going straight for the gold

But a wise guy called Coyote tricked Dragon by shrinking him down to a fly

so that he could eat a slice of humble pie

Do you need a change in habit?

What good are your lucky charms

If you get consumed by your own facade?

Let go of the shores and surrender to Life’s oceanic bounty

Are you holding yourself back with programmed beliefs that want to

break out of their boxed in mental compartments?

Lighten up by picturing a dragonfly making dazzling aerial feats

in the wide open vastness of your infinite inner space . . .

Ask for directional guidance to see through illusionary smokescreens –

Allow transformational pathways to become self-evident truths

Summer is a powerful time to act and create change in your life!

But it won’t be long before Nature reflects a colorful transition –

when Autumn leaves behind fleeting energetic balance and fallen old selves

Life is a mystery – isn’t the destination really the adventure of the journey?

Commentary:

August is a mysterious month. It is a time where it feels very much like the heat of summer will last forever. But even early on in the month – if you look carefully, you can see subtle evidence that fall is coming. Perhaps it’s a fallen leave or a hint of color that looks out-of-place in a treeline of green. Dragonflies are colorful creatures that do incredible feats. They are good reminders that it is a magical, mysterious and colorful world out there. Use their energies to see through the smoke and mirrors and awaken a more authentic and meaningful life experience. Remember to get out and play outside and meditate on the healing application of water.

Take care of yourselves everyone,

Ari

In case you missed it, here is a Chakra meditation video demonstration that I recorded recently. You can also find a multimedia description on the meditation page of this website:

When The Ship Comes In Revisited

Artwork by Barbara Merlotti

The voices of trauma’s Tsunami can come on like a perfect storm . . .

Reoccurring behavioral traps are good at getting hooked into edgy coral reefs!

They are awakening the liberty of oceanic sea salts fore dissolving deeply engrained wounds

that hide away our souls in grottos like mermaid castaways.

May we rework new growth and transform gnarly old barnacles into new vegetation

that eat up toxic pollutants.

When the ship comes in to A New Earth,

may we energize our bodies into luminous beings.

As the tides rise,

erosion intensifies and lands dry up . . .

A bridge of Chiron crosses over upper and lower Chakras in Unity.

See a Galactic Federation of spiritual allies!

Are they integrating into your new Spiritual Light Team?

Sound the cadence of their positive self talk mantras that

trump all antagonistic ideological conspiracy theories,

fake news or any negative energies that otherwise suck you in

underwater and turn you into a bloated fish.

Hit the pause button and remember to breathe!

Q-Tip is a spiritual rapper that knows when to WAIT.

Picture: Quit Taking It Personally makes friends with Why Am I Talking?

Movement through the 3D ceiling age of receivers;

dissolves the noose within a New World transition of Fourth dimensional co-creators!

Take care of yourselves everyone,

Ari

A Snake Slithers In July And A Full Buck Moon Rises On July 23, 2021

May the sign of a male deer’s antlers point you into a doe’s yin-ward, gentle allurement into new adventures. Pay purposeful attention to the seasonal synchronicities that July opens up in your consciousness . . .

August is just around the corner. Even in its notorious ‘dog days’, if you look carefully, you’ll see early evidence of the subtleties of Autumn arriving. Perhaps an early fallen leaf, or another hint of Fall in the air.

Soon it will be back to school and back to business. Light and dark will be equal again on Wednesday, September 22nd.

Artwork by Barbara Merlotti

A Full Buck Moon wakens the return of the serpent to respond to the poisonous venom with medicinal healing energy of Snake. Out of the ashes, a Phoenix Rises. Growing pains are only an inevitable and natural part of life. But the stories you project onto your pain only adds more scar tissue to your wounds. Snake can help show you how to shed your old self and change the snake holes of your soul’s path.

What might look like a poisonous snake, could become the new skin of a healing tonic in your Life. Picture a Snake to see through the smokescreen of opinions that others might have about you, and slither into the truth of your own, unique identity. Are you sick from eating something bad for you? How are you feeling after getting a good night’s sleep, eating mostly fruits, plants, whole foods, spending time unplugged, and playing outside?

This month, we get in touch with our reptilian kin . . .

We are inspired to shed our old skins!

A Full Buck Moon arrives with the growth of new deer antlers

sprouting out of the foreheads of male deer.

As such, we transform the toxicity of venomous snake-bites

into an alchemy of soulful healing.

Might as well breathe in Divine air in the form of crystalline love-light!

Stoking the fire burning within . . .

A passing Summer Solstice,

Gently nudges us closer to feminine yin.

Meditation on Snake awakens medicinal transformation . . .

The time is now for heartfelt connections.

But don’t forget to mind your head!

Disasters leave a crematorium of ashes smoldering underground;

igniting new trees to leave underground darkness and branch out into the light.

Pain and suffering are hellish tragedies of Life . . .

Sometimes it’s hard not to feel derailed when riding along subways of unwanted emotions.

A sacred marriage between energetic masculine and feminine kin;

Awakens magical rebirths by shedding dead skin.

Commentary:

We live in a world full of toxicity. We are constantly being bombarded by lots of energies that leave us feeling depleted. Whether its heavy metals in our bodies, pollution, electromagnetic frequencies, radiation, a shrinking ozone layer, drugs, etc. – there are so many ways to bring us down or perk us up. But in spite of being bitten by these garden variety of venoms, there is so much help waiting to slither in from the spirit realm. All we have to do is ask. Just imagine the possibilities if every one of us started to do this from a clean place in our hearts – without any expectation of getting something in return. It will come about and reflect in our outer world when enough of us shed our old skins and open up to becoming something new. In this way, we will leave behind a clean energetic footprint for others to follow by being a role model. It’s like flagging a path for others to follow toward the trail head, to use a hiking metaphor. The trick is to not get stuck in our primitive lizard brain, or reptilian brain. It is easy to become trapped in survival mode – robotic and lost in the everyday busyness of life. But the same systems that oppress can liberate. It is encouraging to know that alternative energy really does start with you. We can all incorporate a meditative way of living by simply becoming mindful of our breathing, picturing calming and peaceful thoughts, expecting synchronicity and focusing on the positive. Enacting a walking meditation, if you will, really does change our experience with reality and energizes our bodies. This process of transformation is contagious and literally becomes your new normal.

The Spring Equinox, Big Night & A Full Worm Moon

Artwork Created by Aunt Barbara Merlotti

Here on the ground, the arriving Spring Equinox on March 20th means that more robins are around, singing melodious songs about the early bird getting the worm. A Full Worm Moon, also called the Sugar Moon by the Ojibwe, takes place on March 28th. The Ojibwe name was inspired by the time of year when the sap of sugar maples starts to flow. Of course there are other names for this Full Moon as well. Moreover, in Northern New England on Big Night, the salamanders, wood frogs, and peepers are driven to make their sensuous journey to find vernal pools to procreate, and embody being good role models for sustainable living on our Planet. We can do our part by respecting their natural intelligence, and way of life. How do they manage to muddle along, in spite of overcoming incredible obstacles, such as scary predators, and paved roads full of human traffic? How do they do this without any guidebooks, lesson plans, compasses or maps to show them the way? Talk about taking back the night.

Remember in last month’s blog that we discussed coregulation, which in part just means the process of learning to harmonize with each other, and our environment. We become more equipped to do this when we are true to our core, and centered in our souls. Awakening to our soul’s purpose, and discovering our human potential is merely seeing that “the Earth is like a reform school.” Moreover, the transition we are going through is that we are getting back to our connection to each other, and our connection to our Mother Earth. What better way to honor Women’s History Month in March? In a nutshell, nurturing this connection means that we are taking care of our home, school, and community. Of course we can do this best when we are meditating and connecting with Nature consistently. But without women or Mother Earth, none of us would be here.

Additionally, in this dreamy Piceas time of year, meditation on Whale is a powerful spirit guide to tap into the heartbeat of the planet, and deepen our understanding of our empathic connections to one another. Keep in mind that whales carry the memories of our planetary consciousness. Of course we come from different pods, and have our diverse expressions. But in our multidimensional depth, we can all dive into the fluid and elusive nature of alternate realities, and who we really are. From this standpoint, it becomes easier to appreciate the wonder and beauty of the world. “Day turns into night, and back into day, the moon waxes and wanes, the seasons go through their dramatic and subtle changes. When a flower blooms and starts to fade, we accept the poignancy of that change. Even if the decay of the flower makes us sad, we can appreciate it as part of the movement of life. Imagine what it would be like if things existed in a fixed way. Wouldn’t life get boring pretty fast?”

Cosmically, sacred geometrical Arcturian wisdom reflects that the vibration of integration asserts that “the energy of integration helps you apply new truths in your daily life. The energy makes you aware that you are responsible for your own actions.” Moreover, the dimensional shift we are discussing here mirrors our movement into a New Age and Paradigm, aka an Aquarian Age or a New Earth. You already all know that the empowered freedom we like to highlight, is followed by the attached earmark of responsibility. But you don’t have to look at responsibility as a virus feeding off of its host of freedom. Same thing with taxes. If you’re making enough money to complain about how much you’re paying in taxes, then you might want to examine what’s underneath your disgruntlement. But try to remember to be gentle on yourself about it, and not too taxing in your self reflection, if you’ll kindly pardon the pun. Besides, alternative energy starts with you, just as it starts with me. Do you see?

Perceptually, marinate on the increasing phenomena of ETs or multidimensional beings as analogous to when our ancestors started to experience the arrival of Europeans in “Longer Boats.” For example, it wasn’t until a trusted Shaman or Wise Elder was able to integrate the reality of these crafts into their perception that they could report back their findings to the tribe. And then medicine people could share their visions so that the clans people could begin to see the reality of their new vision. Aborigines initially thought white people were ghosts from the Dreamtime, which to be dead serious, is both true and not true.

In much the same way as back Zen, the experiences right Tao are not all good or bad. Try to see these experiences as part of our collective, universal evolution. In that light, it is important to see the silver lining, and focus on making positive interpretations. This New Age of Diversity in Unity means that all voices matter, and that we should honor our differences. We all have different talents, and strengths. But that doesn’t mean that we have to go to war with each other or fight to make certain talents or strengths more or less valuable to the greater whole. That’s why cults and fascism are easy and seductive paths to the dark side, if we don’t do our own shadow work. Shining the spotlight on “power to the people” features the Divine Light of our better angels. The democratic process can get messy at times. But in the long run, a longitudinal and patient pace is preferable to the quick fix, and short term profits. It’s hard to go wrong with a diversified portfolio that supports the greening of the planet. BIPOC, LGBTQ, Super Pac supporters, and people who identify as “young conservatives” can all agree to disagree perhaps on their apparant divergent heritage or political differences without arguing or fighting with each other or taking their points of contention personally.

Furthermore, give consideration that the reported close encounters with ETs or multidimensional beings is a vibrational shift of them “slowing their vibration down” in a way or framework that makes sense to our brain consciousness.  Reflect back to February 25th’s blog entry about coregulation. A simple shift in perspective allows for a co regulatory opportunity that we can meet together in collective consciousness, from a place of curiosity and empathy. These entities meet us where we are at, and we can meet them where they are at. When we step into our fears with courage, we can use the power of our visualization to build up “multidimensional immunity.” We can also see ourselves as protected by a “vibrational vaccine,” as a way to empower ourselves during this pandemic, and the Climate Change that we are weathering on the planet right now. Or you could just literally shake out any trauma or fears that you experience, like many animals do naturally. It is amazing what a powerful release this simple strategy can have on your mind-body-spirit. That’s why martial arts, dancing, movement, exercise, yoga, taichi, and qigong can be effective wellness practices for good mental health. Of course there is no replacement for good therapy for personal/spiritual growth. I mean, you get your oil changed for your car, right? Just sayin’.

Finally, we hear a lot about the Growth Mindset in education these days. Similarly, we have heard good and plenty about the decay that mental rigidity and fixed ideas do to our well being. Growth Mindset involves developing inner resilience as an opportunity for learning and growth. A Growth Mindset framework allows for a developmental, life cycle approach to learning. Rather than striving for perfection, it is understood that imperfections are just examples of mastery in brilliant disguises that just haven’t happened yet. Sometimes, growing up is one step up, and two steps back. But paradoxically, see those masteries as already happening, and on their way. This requires an agreement of letting go of control, being open to trust, as well as having an open, passive attitude about learning something new. Given my strong, oppositional streak, and built in anger, this has been a challenging life cycle issue for me to relax on, lean into, and embrace. Systemically, being vulnerable, fostering inclusivity and belonging are part of the cultural paradigm shift that needs to take root in the matrix that we are mixing it up in together. It comes from a synergistic bottom up, and top down fluidity, where we are all working together, in the spirit of common language, and win-win politics.

Take care of yourselves everyone,

Ari

A Song About A Mother And Son’s Sacred Spiritual Conversational Connection

Photo by Being.the.traveller on Pexels.com

Wise Fool is song that I wrote several years ago. It was inspired by an old poem written by my mom many moons ago, during one of her psychiatric hospitalization’s from one of her severe bouts of depression. What evolved from her poem is a spirited conversation that arrived out of meditative experiences in the dreamtime. This song is also inspired by the spiritual energy of Coyote, aka the “trickster”, which generally symbolizes the balance of wisdom and folly. Some of my old friends used to call one of my “signature” facial expressions, “the grin”, which reveals this part of my personality. Today, I look at Coyote, and my mom’s Spirit as part of my Spiritual Light Team, which I activate everyday, prior to an early morning intentional prayerful-meditation. I do this by simply saying, “Activate Spiritual Light Team.” And then I typically follow this by saying, “We ask God Directly (Creator/Great Spirit/Universe/Higher Self), and the Archangel’s of the Highest Order, to help Us awaken Our Multidimensionality, walk in alignment with the Universal pillars of Love and Truth, becoming the change We want to see in the world, through the gateway of Inner Peace, one step, one foot, one breath at a time. And for all Your love, support, and guidance along the way, We thank You, We thank You, We thank You. Amen).” Remember that even in darkness, there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Wise Fool

Alone in a place no one can see.
Sit fools spinning dreams of who they might be.
Images and colors flickering, remain undefined.
Serving only to remind.

Are your feelings pulling at you tauntingly?
Smoldering beneath the surface cautiously.
Does your frigid exterior got your smile frozen?
Clinging tentatively to distorted visions
.

Like a vampire bite, dark emotions carry venom.
Attaching blame when I become a victim.
Feeding off the energy of another.
God help me, for I’m a psychic blood sucker.

Are your feelings pulling at you tauntingly?
Smoldering beneath the surface cautiously.
Does your frigid exterior got your smile frozen?
Clinging tentatively to distorted visions
.

Groundhog Day and I’m dead again.
A fleeting shadow is there no end?
Searching for an exit, fools eyes find none.
Until I awaken and see we are one!

Wishing you all wellness & inner peace!

Ari



May This Full Flower Moon Awaken the Fragrance of our Collective Air

Some of our ancestors called this Full Moon a Full Flower Moon
because many spring flowers are blooming around this time.

A New Moon arrives on May 22nd.

For various reasons, this Full Moon on May 7th is also being called a Supermoon –
the third consecutive one of its kind in 2020.

This threepeat makes for an appetizing prequel to this
Summer’s polyenergetic Astrological Eclipse Season.

They will be arriving on the Summer Solstice in later June.

Energies intensify more than usual around these times.

But this Full Moon is also called the Wesak Full Moon.

This is symbolic of the Buddha’s Light of Compassion that shines brightly
on the consciousness of our planet at this time.

It’s always good to have a compassionate approach.
But especially good medicine when spirits spring out, and up.

Do whatever you can to ground yourself, so that
your feet stay anchored into the Earth.

In the Northern Hemisphere of the Americas,
many of us remember learning the mantra:

April showers bring May flowers

Today, it’s especially hard to be a student or work at a school
when school isn’t in session.

Many people are out of work, or being told to stay home.
But how do I make a living? What do I do with myself?

Beyond a shadow of a doubt, we are experiencing great adversity –
humans especially, know calamity on the planet right now.

But there are positive signs regarding the environmental impact
of staying home, and consuming less fossil fuels on our ecosystems.

I’m hearing students, and coworkers say that they miss being at school.
This is coming from people that you don’t typically hear express those sentiments.

And I’ve heard stories about areas in the Himalaya’s
that you couldn’t see a month ago.

Reportedly, skies are clearing to show their beautiful vistas
to the world again in that location.

As if we needed any proof that fossil fuels
don’t adversely affect humans, and all Earthlings!

They certainly aren’t good for the multidimensional Universe either.

What you can do with this adversity right now,
is allow yourself to awaken to the present moment,
and sit with what is.

You can become mindful of the energy of your thoughts,
and the emotions that connect to those thoughts.

You can become mindful of your breath, replace your fears,
and quiet your chattering monkey mind with peaceful, calming thoughts.

Do this one step, one breath, and one moment at a time.

On the horizontal level, you can play with the forms, including your own.

Get plenty of rest, practice self-care, follow a routine,
nurture your creativity by writing, making art, music
take photojournalistic pictures, drink plenty of water, and eat healthy foods.

On a vertical level, unplug from the gadgets,
travel inside your body into your formless dimension,
and notice what awakens within you in the quiet darkness.

What comes up for you in this empty space?

Can you come down into your soul into this unknowing,
and unmanifested area of you that might want to become conscious?

This is a place beyond ingrained thinking, and robotic habits.
It is a space beyond linear, clock time, and schedules.

Yet paradoxically, you can access this space within the
mundane tasks of your daily routine.

This is where the magic wakes up by allowing your
consciousness to see the light of day.

This is the place where the
darkness of night walks out in the sunlight.

It is a commingling partnership with our masculine, and feminine beingness –
inside of ourselves, and outward bound with each other.

Paddling Through the Currents of Events with the Grace of a Swan

A Full Pink Moon rises in our skies on Tuesday, April 7th.

But as many of you know, you can feel the effects of a hungry, and
digesting moon cycle a few days prior to, and after the actual Full Moon.

As this current pandemic event spreads,
so does early spring vegetation across the fruit plains of the Americas.

It can be hard not to resist the not so grand waters
of these rapidly shifting tides of life.

Navigating mixes messages can be like that.

There are many who just want life to go back to normal again.

Some of these people are the same people who
have been waiting on the world to change.

But without an inner directed focus, and spiritually
driven internal shifts, it will be harder to experience any
transformation of becoming the change you want to see in the world.

Staying put, and remaining at home seems like
an easy enough mantra to follow.

Unless it is not.

We are invited to turn inward, and reexamine everything.

Polluted canals in Venice are clearing up,
and dolphins are swimming into inlets that hadn’t been.

With less cars on the roads, and jets in the air,
the planet can rest, and take a deep breath.

If this isn’t a time of a planetary, and universal deep
energetic spring cleaning, then I don’t know what is.

Like an agitated swan, maybe the current waters of life
are enough to make you hiss.

But upon a deeper reflection, may Swan awaken an embracement of
staying afloat through grace under fire during an Aries time of year.

A New Moon on the 22nd, brings new beginnings, along with the
current spirit of the season right now.

Like the Corona virus, Spring is a season of transition
that is not without its mixed messages.

There are rememberances of the ghosts of winter in the air,
of old ways of doing things, that might conjure up nostalgia.

And there are the winds of change in the air, like other times
in human history where massive changes have taken place.

It’s easy to forget that when we have been conditioned to
buy into the business as usual mantra.

Like the Hopi elders say, we are the ones we have been waiting for.

Consider that, another name for corona is crown.

The crown chakra is what connects us to our universal connection to Spirit.

We are living in a time of our crown chakras waking up on Planet Earth.

While being quarantined isn’t the preferred outcome,
we are being given an incentive to awaken this prophecy.

Further movement into Spring’s outgrowth of energies,
reflects the rising light, peaking on the Summer Solstice in later June.

As light starts moving downhill after that, will we see
the darkness of this current pandemic clear up?

How will we all continue to respond to its aftershocks,
readjustment, realignment to a new normal way of being?

With the winds of Climate Change picking up, we do have the opportunity
to come down into our souls, and be in our hearts with each other.

We are being prompted to let go of our attachments to our
deeply engrained habitual distractions that have kept us
sufficiently medicated on life supports.

The present moment contains all that is.
You can heal the past, and create a new future trajectory.

This is authentic power, and you can step into your
power at any given moment.

One step, one moment, one breath at a time.

This can become your new reality, and your new habit
of sacred ritual.

Mindful walking, breathing, and way of doing things
shifts your experience with reality, as does the
reality around you changes.

The Tides of March, and A Full Worm Moon

I remember when Hawk flew-over
the trails on the last New Moon.

This reminded me about them being symbolic of new beginnings,
and sacred connections with New Moons, Hawk and Mercury.

Mercury in Retrograde springs forth relationships from our past
that often circle back to the present.

Sometimes, these reunions revisit us in a variety of forms of phone calls,
post cards, letters, emails, or other virtual social media platforms.

Or they might come in the form of dreams, visions, or memories of
someone you might not have known back in the day, or even in the flesh.

The point is we are given opportunities to revisit, and rework old
patterns so that we can release old ways, and rewrite new scripts.

But pretty soon, a Full Worm Moon will be in effect on
Monday, March 9th, and then Mercury goes Direct again.

On the day before that, Daylight Saving Time begins,
signals the call to the light.

As the fog lifts, and the skies clear,
may red breasted robins remind us that the early bird gets the worm.

Can you feel the winds of change whistling to you in the air?

Our days are getting longer, which tends to
spring forth an outgrowth in spirits, and budding energies.

And then, Yin and Yang will be equal again on
the Vernal Equinox on the first day of Spring on March 19th.

This is a time when Nature shows us equality
between masculine and feminine energies.

The Yin and Yang are always in flux,
as the one constant in Life is change.

We are in a Pisces time of year, which is a good
time to meditate on the water element,
and the fishes of the sea.

Have you ever noticed that fighting against the current leaves
you feeling more submerged underwater, than going with the flow?

Meditation on Whale is good medicine to tap into
the heartbeat of the planet, remember our history,
and know where we are going.

These great creatures have a living memory, and crystalized wisdom
that we might as well heed, and respect.

Like it or not, we are swimming into the waters of different pods,
and new ways of defining family constellations.

Do you ever wonder why an elderly, Jewish, card carrying Socialist that
hasn’t forgotten about the Civil Rights movement of the 60s,
continues to be written off as an “electable candidate” by
the corporate media, and even liberally-minded voters?

Where does that voice come from that says we can’t afford to
subsidize quality health care, or free college education
for those who want to access higher learning?

Or why the two major political parties
are so against Rank Choice Voting?

Consider that Donald Trump, and his friends in the Billionaire Class
that control the resources want nothing to do with a civically
engaged public because it seemingly threatens their way of life.

This way of life says that your ability to make money makes you better
than those that are not, and it is predicated on property rights, and privilege.

But really, it’s just that they want to control where the
“general welfare” goes, and who benefits from it.

Everything about that kind of thinking is wrong, because what we
are talking about is what is good for the goose is good for the gander.

It is impressive how in the dark people are about where
the money comes from, and where it goes.

That’s why the bulk of the money in the Military-Industrial (Economic) Complex
hides in shadowy “black hole” accounts.

By and large, the Billionaire Class prefers to go unexamined,
and wants to keep it that way.

Like when the white slaves, and black slaves were manipulated
by the slavemaster to believe one was more of an underclass
than the other, and therefore inferior.

Today, the ego of the habituated mind is addicted to
segregated, us and them kind of thinking.

There are those that are entitled to preferential treatment,
and those that are not, says the voice in the head.

But where does that come from?

Perhaps it’s about time that the age old social democratic values that
have been muzzled in this country come out into the sunlight.

Opening up to abundance means that there is enough, and everyone can win.

And if you are sick of getting sucked into March Madness,
and election year politics . . .

Think about the frogs and salamadars finding their way
to vernal pools on Big Night. See them arriving to their breedings grounds,
safe and sound so that we can all carry on our merry way in peaceful coexistence.

As The Sturgeons Run, The Dragonfly

A Full Sturgeon Moon arrived in the skies yesterday.

Many of our ancestors noticed these great fish run,
and liberally give us a peak seasonal catch.

This Earth, and Her creatures have given us so much of their bounty.

You’d think our Mother’s wisdom would
take root in our consciousness, and that we’d be hooked.

The time is now to give back.

You don’t have to hug a trees, go to protests,
become seduced by a savior complex, or pound your chest about your political
beliefs to convince everyone that you have all the right answers.

But what you really can do to move with climate change is become the change you
want to see in the world by noticing your own climate on the inside.

That’s damn near impossible when you’re demonizing yourself or others,
feeding off your anger, hatred, and fears.

As a living soul, you came here to experience life by waking up to
the reality that you are a spiritual being having a human experience.

We are collective souls, and we can cocreate heaven on earth.
This knowledge has been also passed on by our ancentry.

A loving blueprint was designed by Creator, and imprinted in our DNA
with the universal intention to rewire itself in our being.

Have you ever heard the saying that
today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday?

Might as well replace those fears with peaceful, calming thoughts, by
following the river of life, with all of its twists and turns
without getting damed up in our thought forms.

Be mindful of the way Dragonfly brings
the magic of color in our world.

Do you see the intersection between the energies
of dreamtime and material reality?

Dragonfly medicine shows us the ability to hover in the air,
and reflects powerful pictures of light prisms that are
captured in the eye of Nature’s still frames.
