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.

Till we tweet again peeps,

Woodpecker Guides Us into the Widsom of the Trees

Woodpecker’s drumming awakens visions of Mother Earth’s
changing heartbeat, energetic pulsing and weather forecast

And yet Friday’s Pink Full Moon remembers our shared blessing of Buddha’s Light
that paved the way for Christ’s Love

Love, Light and Laughter are good medicine ladies and gentlemen

Woodpecker’s spirited teachings help us drill into deeper
soulful exploration in other realms, dimensions, new vistas and novel experiences

A New Age of Aquarius is getting closer . . .

You can go your own way by marching to the beat of your own drum

Stillness speaks to us in a way that lights up our right brains
Here we transform into Homo Luminosity
Literally walking in a Heaven we can see during our Earthwalk

Wake up expecting synchronicity and yet paradoxically let go of expectations . . .

Step up to inner peace by walking in the present moment and
accepting the Now for what it is

Sometimes, you have to face your fears head on and then realize that it is
really more frightening to avoid our fears than it is to lean into them

It’s been three years since the tragic terrors in Boston
exploded in our consciousness . . .

But there have been many terrorist acts there and elsewhere,
before the city was known as Beantown

We should learn from our experiences with fear and acting out violently that
these old dramas only recycle wasted energy and subsequently stagnate growth

But then again, it is Spring and Yang is expressive in His outward growth
May we redefine masculinity by softening Him with a gentle, yet powerful
showering of a feminine Yin energetic cleansing

Let us remember Prince’s inner light was tall in stature
but not confuse his celebrity, ability to push the cultural envelope and talents
to sing and dance, nor applause culture as a true remedy for pain

Like all deaths, his passing gives us permission to grieve with sadness in our hearts

The arts, music and sports are really just games to be playfully experienced –
Regardless of outcome or who wins . . .

May we learn new ways of evolving into a more fair and just society
where empathy and compassion are our politics of Being . . .

May we hit the pause button when it comes to profit-driven over working
at the expense of the players and performing artists who entertain and distract us

There are no enemies . . .
Compete with your opponent but send them love to lighten up the match!

Till the next trail head junction,

Ari

I am looking forward to the forthcoming arrival of my first professionally published book, Something to Chew On: Digesting Healthy Spiritual Food for the Soul in the Calendar Year Ahead. I will keep you posted regarding when it will be released to the public. This book is a collaboration of my writing and my Aunt Barbara’s artwork. I have confident faith that it will be a helpful trail guide along the path of walking meditation.
