Duck awakens archetypal energies associated with emotional comfort and protection
It’s medicinal power is arriving right now in Spring and will flow into Summer

Summer Solstice sits on the horizon in later June where sunlight reaches its peak –
A fleeting tick only about a month away in clock time
A New World is revealing itself right before our eyes on Planet Earth

Water symbolizes strong feminine power, the astral plane and emotional states
May we drink in the waters of Life
So that we Nurture our Nature

Learn to recognize all stuff as small stuff without sweating it
Just let it roll off your back like a duck

Speak your emotional truth . . . then let go of it
Because getting stuck in the muck of anger can cause a flood of health problems
Or we can transform our anger into positive and constructive action . . .

Do you need to pay more attention to your emotions
and close personal relationships?

Dive beneath your anger . . .
What other emotions are submerged underneath and simmering cautiously?

If you find yourself shackled and drawn in the
gang banging prison of repetitive mental tapes then
marinate on Duck to help you relax and dissolve your attachment
to any fixed perspective you might be stewing on

Letting go and releasing old wounds is a process . . .

It is easier for us to become identified with our creature comforts
and get sucked in to their accompanying dramas while here on Earth

Imagine Duck paddling through the changing emotional tides of
Civil and Human Rights and levying the waters of our
GLBTQ crew of our human family

Do you feel the ripple effect of the sea of change in the air?

Folks are waking up everywhere . . .

Duck’s energies help us remember that
sometimes we need to land on familiar ground
that is safe and familiar to us – like enjoying a favorite pastime or
revisiting old places in our consciousness
This is good medicine to be on the ball during Mercury in Retrograde

Duck symbolizes balance during our journey into
the elemental forces on Earth, Water and air

Do you need to bring more balance into your life?

Picture a Duck guiding you into breathing in a fresh air of passion
into your work and play

Otherwise, that energy has nowhere else to go
but through the turbulent waters of anxiety

Trying to “figure it all out”, get that perfect job, new car,
wait for the perfect moment or family member to be who you want them to be
will leave a foul air in your wake
And you will probably look forward to
inhaling a chronic air of disappointment

Duck inspires our own adaptability –
Try to make the most of the situations you are in
where you might feel uncomfortable

Do you need to become more adaptable?

If only we could accept that there are no guarantees . . .
Meditation on that helps “seal the deal” of an
internal experience of comfort and protection

See you further on up the trails,

Do you remember Duck’s medicinal power?
Feathering our memory . . .

We are all travelers here.
Waking up to an understanding that we are
Living in a deeply sacred and mysterious Universe.

Journeying through symbolic and archetypal energies
Streaming through our individual beings
binding us together as One.

Duck’s presence loosens up our resistance to untangling from
internal emotional webs during our changing tides.
Opening up our Hearts to systemic equilibrium.

Are you in balance?

“Oh Captain My Captain”
Duck paddles through Life’s muddy waters . . .

Mindfully exploring our surface and depth.
Singing the blues amidst flat energy _
Learning musical high note security by staying afloat with grace and comfort.

Returning to innocence –
Somewhere in time . . .
To a familiar place where we feel safe and comfortable.

Conversations with Duck remind us that
“Birds of a feather, flock together”
In like mind and spirit.

Do you need to be more adaptable?

Nurture you emotions as you would water other areas of life.
We are emotional beings!

Do you need to pay more attention to your emotions and close relationships?

Dig in to grounding New Beginnings with New Moon in Virgo.

Movement toward Autumn Equinox means waning light
bringing us closer to fine with balance of light and dark.

Whatever our circumstances might look like in this lifetime, our human brethren are emotional creatures that feel a strong yearning to belong and be included in fraternal sisterhood. Some of us, try as we might appear hellbent on avoiding and killing that aspect of ourselves. Living authentically however, is sobering us up to our need to regulate our emotional plight. Sure, we have plenty of things to distract us from our emotional bodies, like “work to do and bills to pay”. But those distractions only make it conveniently inconvenient to suppress and repress our emotional tides that inundate. During this powerful eclipse season and Full Moon coming soon to a theater of life near you, our emotional realities are intensifying. Between the Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice, the masculine energetic light of day is rising, as are our spirits. Meditation on Duck is a free guide to tune in to. Its energies want to share its spiritual wisdom with you. When we allow Duck’s Chi to paddle into our souls, we are given emotional comfort and protection. We are in our element with water and given assistance while floating in the astral and emotional realms. Duck helps us drink in the waters of life and swim effectively and stay afloat in our emotional waters. Duck is a powerful spirit guide to maintain our Earthbound connection and let things roll off our backs when things get heated. If only our CEO-Government friends running the business of our military-industrial-complex would marinate on consuming Duck’s free-spirited teachings.

As the world burns, soapy pundits on the tele remain engaged and driven to distraction vis-a-vis the pontificating of ego-centered debates. Admittedly, fascism has its romantic undertones, but we need not choose to buy it. Words are used as weapons of mass distraction, but we have weapons of mass destruction that we need to clear. The time is now to shift our focus away from looking at our Mother Earth as a finite resource to deplete, to a living Being that gives us sustainable life. The engrained business as usual model that has been indoctrinated into our brains needs a new cognitive map. When we are identified with our minds, an endless sea of mental concepts and incessant accompanying emotional reactions are typically dominated by unrealized anxiety. And this hypnotic trance has a tendency to propagate a sleep walk through life. But in every breath we take, we have an opportunity to wake up. Rather than check out, we all have our part to do. For some it’s putting down the 40 ounces to slavery. For others, it might mean seeing through the veil that capitalism and socialism are really just opposite sides of the same coin. Instead of concretely looking at one another as separate and disconnected, one religion being right and the others wrong, qualifying the winners and losers mantra–we become in touch with our strong impulse to shift toward unity in our consciousness. We are leaving behind a bi-polar world of angels and demons, while co-authoring a New Chapter that includes a pluralistic and multi-polar New Earth script.

Ducks are sound creatures of habit and are good reminders to return to safe and comfortable aspects of ourselves when we need to feel safe within our Being. Their energies help us cope with our emotions gracefully. Meditation on Duck helps us acquire and access strategies in the areas of balance, emotional comfort, adaptability and adventure. Life is a journey, not without its labor pains. We all feel that right now, especially during these changing times of transition. The old world is burning, while stoking the embers of the Phoenix Rising. Do you need to establish balance, increase or pay more attention to your emotions and close relationships? Meditation on Duck is ready to help you receive consultation to those questions without charging a bill.

I remember hearing about stories from the porch when Great Grandfather and other relatives drank home-made vino, played cards, sang “these songs of freedom” and laughed a lot, despite their poverty and otherwise very depressing circumstances.  In the backdrop of the USA, it was the era known as “The Great Depression”.  Although they lived in St. Louis, the word out on the street here in Maine is that most folks were poor back then as many still are today, so who knew the difference?  Although the “times they are a changin'”, the top dawgs are still sitting atop the pyramid and our “friends in Congress” are even more out of touch on channel Tao than they were back Zen.  President Gas officially came out of the closet this week saying that he officially supports marriage for all human beings, regardless of how they are oriented.  But the burning question that I still have for the fossils that fuel the American political scene and beyond is this:  is Coke or Pepsi democrat or republican?  What would happen if the powers that were and the masses of us tapped into the free healthcare of duck medicine?  I wonder what would happen if we all meditated on duck’s spirited energy of balance, emotional comfort, adaptability and sense of adventure?  Would our one human family co-create a more equitable and sustainable planet, where birds of a feather flock together and we feather one another’s ripple in Unity Consciousness, even while celebrating the good times of our diversity? 

As we swim on the surface of Classroom Mothership Earth, the dinosaurs refuse to scale back the liberal excesses of the corporate mafia that bribe the government.  The protection of the current status quo-business as usual-bottom line-ends justifying the means mentality is toxic and poisonous to our public and private interests.  This developmentally delayed perspective is especially revealed vis-a-vis corporate propaganda and its tentacles that keeps us programmed in reptilian boxes that make it difficult to see beyond the illusion that bullies us into thinking that we are separate and disconnected.  In much the same way as a paternalistic slave master, our own governor here in Maine reminds us of the old saying that “appetite comes with eating.”  Yes, it is a win-win when “able-bodied” folks “get of the couch and get a job”.  But, excuse me mister governor, but “who payin’ you?”  When our own Constitution systemically fails to honor promoting the “general welfare” of our citizenry, then “able-bodied” folks with anxiety, depression and a myriad of other unaddressed and often undiagnosed mental health and health needs are making self-defeating choices as small businesses sail away on your clock.  In a truly intellectually free thinking society, even every third grader understands that when you slash programs that provide a safety net and encourage what social scientists call resiliency to the masses, then predictably we see and digest the bitter reality of homelessness, emergency room costs, arrests, hospitalizations and incarcerations wax just like the waning Full Moon.  On a global scale, Wal-Mart keeps slashing wages as rebellion erupted this past week somewhere in Asia and I am being bloody serious when I report that the proliferation of genetically engineered foods and Wi-Fi are feeding off our energy fields like a bunch of invisible vampires.  The dying gods of the old world are terrified to unplug from their liberally militaristic ways because they have become attached to the pacifier of the military-industrial complex.  What would happen if the real blood sucking welfare vampires were being targeted and questioned?  But we know that the dominant forces and the hidden hand in society likes to remain unexamined.  Now, if I am looking at all this through the spirited lens of duck consciousness, that would be a foul ball!

When we dive into the deeper waters of life, we are able to perceive into the realm of Infinity, where Intention awaits, infinite possibilities abound and solutions are revealed.  When we fly over an aerial view of the iceberg, we see that what lies beneath the mere tip is a much larger mountain.  If only the folks who cry “social Darwinism” and assert “that’s just the way it is” would open up to the wisdom that it is less about Nature versus Nurture and more about Nature and Nurture always co-creating and interacting with One another 100% of the time, in any given moment.  In much the same way as duck, when we effectively learn to navigate land, air and water, we become equipped to dive into our emotional nature.  Further, when we nurture our emotional selves, we learn to soar into the heavens.  In this way, we co-create Heaven on Earth, one step, one moment, one breath at a time.  And just as Rome was not built-in a day, building A New Earth is a process, not without its labor pains.  Will we allow for duck to assist us in staying afloat on Mothership Earth and alleviate creating suffering for Our Selves?

Stay True,

Ari
