Tomorrow is the Winter Solstice . . .

It is the darkest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere

The Holiday season is upon us . . .
Merriment and festive spirits are in the air

It is a good time to come down into our souls and gather with family and friends

But darker days, and mixed-feelings come on strong
that are not always easy to make friends with

In your inner conversations with yourself, try to be gentle on yourself . . .
It is a gift to have a forgiving attitude about your humanity and imperfections –
(and the humanity and imperfections of others)

Being in that space calms down self-inflicted suffering!

Being present with yourself and others
is a far greater gift than getting sucked in to the consumerist
drive to outdo each other with manic striving to buy the perfect gifts

Notice how shopping and work are can easily
become culturally sanctioned addictions

Might as well hit the pause button, take a step back, and
take in the spiritual meaning behind this time of year

Allowing yourself to receive love and be compassionate
is a blessing that is shared by all in everyday exchanges

Meditate on healthy giving and receiving during this time of year especially
Celebrate the rising light and waning dark as it unfolds on Nature’s cycle

There will be a Full Wolf Moon on the first day of the Western New Year
May we discover new tracks into a new world

See you further along the trails,

When I think of wolves, I remember stories of two wolves
always fighting with each other in every human head and heart . . .

If we are awake, the doors of perception are cleansed to see
the conflict of duality, and the reality of paradox . . .

This reality has come to the surface on the consciousness of our planet today
It is sobering for those that have been asleep, and it can be painful to stomach

Wolf government reflects neither a pure dictatorship or democracy
Do you see this division playing out in our world today?

Yes, there are Red States, and there’s Blue states
But Wolf teaches us about balance

We are all connected!

We have to transform the masculine, yang rising light of
the Military-Industrial Complex . . .

That’s where the highest concentration of welfare goes

Many souls have left around this time of year, and we witness many tragedies
in our everyday worldly experiences, often horrific, and so painful to watch

But Meditation on Wolf brings about a positive interpretation and silver lining
that lights up the horizon . . .

Like one of the strengths of the old world, could  you “suck it up”,
and see the beauty within and without?

Can you examine what lies beneath your anger, and explore your inner space
beyond cynicism, complaints and sarcasms?

Part of the purification of Channel Now is to let go and release our old wounds . . .

Looking through the perceptual lens of letting go and release
does take a deeper responsibility . . .

As collective souls, we chose to come here to become mortal and learn . . .
For many of us, these lessons have come from the old school of hard knox

But many have only forgotten . . .

It is easy to forget a positive outlook when things
don’t feel good or go our way . . .

Simple it is to dismiss another person or
divergent viewpoint rather than examine what
wisdom might light my way in any unwelcome reflections
mirroring back into our field of vision . . .

On the surface, there is maddening and crazy voices that want to angrily rip
everything in our paths to tiny pieces

But then in the scuba diving into deeper waters of an inner ocean,
there is a wise wolf that is calm, yet with unshakeable power like Yoda

This is the space of stillness

Till we meet again further on up the trails,

Cheers to welcoming a New Year!
Enter in 2017 – on the Gregorian calendar at least

Seal breathes in fresh air into the dark chambers
of the cold, dark waters of our collective soul . . .

Lucid dreaming awakens primal creative elemental forces
symbolic of water and feminine, yin energies

A Full Wolf Moon is coming soon . . .
Before long, it will become the Chinese New Year of the Rooster . . .

What does your inner wolf and rooster need to make friends with right now?

Part of anxiety is blocked energy that wants to express itself through creativity
Another piece is letting go of judgments that charge the ego’s grip

But you can listen to the voices of anxiety with an open and passive attitude

The chattering monkey can become theater, and you can find humor in
the attack of the nervous woodland creature energies

In the Northern hemisphere, our days are getting a little brighter
until light and dark are equal again on Spring Equinox in March

And then light will peak on the Summer solstice in June . . .
Festivities are alive, and energies are expressed outward in community

At that point, masculine energies are dancing vibrantly again, while
falling back in equal rhythmic alignment with feminine on Autumn equinox in September . . .

Here in America, are we not still fighting and struggling to let go of
issues related to taxation with(out) representation?

This marks for a nation of millions peppered with blue states versus red states . . .

Such a Uzi scenario of marketed, mixed martial arts messages and
polarizing allegiances, merely reflecting opposite sides of the same coin

Inherent in colonial roots, slave-trade politics is unearthed . . .

A developmentally delayed electoral college swaddled in its
comfort zone is apparently secured

Does that formidable system not still seek to divide and conquer
the privileged few from the overwhelming majority?

Does the market not take stock in what supports the greater good?

How will our new president-elect
Donald Trump handle the challenges faced by the herd?

Tis the season for outside the box thinking to awaken creative,
new ways of working together

Mercury in Retrograde helps us revisit old connections . . .

Hopefully an opportunity for us to rework past tense dysfunctions
into healthy novel scripts

Use the energies of the New Year to let go of your projections . . .

May we allow ourselves to focus on our close encounters
with the many blessings flying around our energies fields!

Yes, Winter is in full swing . . .

But Groundhog Day is right around the corner with a friendly reminder that
the seeds underground will be starting to think about waking up then

See you further on up the trails,

Penguin leaps out of the water and takes flight into the air
In this space, we are propelled out of our bodies . . . .

Meditation on Penguin awakens powers of dreaming lucidly
We are given access to multidimensional exploration . . .

Our souls leave behind our temples to venture deeper into
alternate states of the astral plane

Gently connect with the tides of this Full Wolf Moon to
psychically stream into your dream-team

May our spiritual wings power our vessels further
into oceanic depths of the Dreamtime

Meditation offers us safe passages for traveling inward
into the vast galaxies of our inner skies with
a safe haven anchored back in this Earth

But facing physical death is an unknown transition . . .

Losing our loved ones to death can be rough on the living
Unexpected deaths can especially leave us feeling angry,
confused, depressed and with deep sadness

Sometimes we just want to hide away from the rest of the world

We survivors are reminded of our own mortality
and feel survivor’s guilt as well as struggle with the lack of control
that we truly have for what happens to us

But we can control how we respond to these tragedies
Painful as it is to taste this bitter aspect of life –
We might as well do the best we can to lean into our feelings and be vulnerable

We are here to learn how to cope with life’s stress in the living moment
while we are still breathing

Make peace with yourself and with your loved ones who have passed on
You can help them ascend through the power of surrender and forgiveness

Get out alone in Nature and sit in the elements for a spell
If you are uncomfortable or having a hard time sitting with what is . . .

Free yourself to get down with the elements and just “let it be” . . .
This is a healthy way to loosen our entanglements with form

Doesn’t the cold chill in your bones from the wind
remind you that you are still alive?

And then isn’t the forecast of a scalding hot shower, saltwater bath or fire
something to look forward to?

Let go of that thought for a moment and just be mindful
of your surroundings and let yourself quiet down

Pretty soon, the animals will speak up and do their thing
What messages does Nature have for you to receive?

Let your inner child remember the surprise birthday party of every moment
Expectations are forgotten as exploration and discovery is your experience

May we be empowered to flex our co-creative dreaming muscles consciously –
so that we can weave them into our waking reality

We have explored how the Empire prefers to remain hidden by going unexamined
As such, we have been told a patriarchical story that
glamorize a dominant script of masculine power

But the Emperor Penguin is a good role model for redefining masculinity . . .
Showing us that Father Sun nurtures Mother Earth with loving warmth

Historically, a nurturing role has typically been ascribed to women and femininity
Penguin alters our traditional ideas of gender roles into a

New dream for humanity where we sew creative feminine threads
Woven together into a new masculine tapestry with energetic equanimity

Hope to see onward up the trails,

Ari

Picture a Wolf as you tune in to the energies of a Full Moon arriving on Saturday . . .

May we remember our mystical connections to the Moon –
Awakening perceptual hidden knowledge and wisdom

Beaming in the light of consciousness in our everyday realities . . .

Let Wolf invoke your own wise teacher within
to help you find your own path to follow

Wolf’s tracks reveal wise spiritual guidance counsel along the trails
Encouraging us to allow our diverse hearts to beat together in oneness

Bring back balance to our energetic pack connection to one another . . .
May we harmonize with our diversity in unity

Mercury in Retrograde spins yesteryear recordings of a time
when hungry wolf packs howled outside old tribal villages

How do your past experiences play out in your present reality?
What do you have to learn about yourself from past relationships and experiences?

Sometimes we are revisited by meaningful connections in our consciousness
through dreams, visions or even physical contact

Winter is a natural time of year to open-up our hearts to feel sadness
It is healthy for us to grieve the passing
of our loved ones who are no longer physically with us in our lives

Perhaps a past relationship or a change in your identity has resurfaced for you

It is good to process these feelings about past relationships
that have faded away in time and space

May we resurrect their imprint that lives on inside our souls . . .

Training ourselves to let go of our fear of loss and shed old scar tissue
Reveals the depth and power of love

As humans, we will always have attachments
Because we are entangled with form

But as spiritual beings having human experiences
We can soften our attachments by relaxing the ties that bind

Call on your guides, like Archangel Michael to help you with this process
Or get some good therapy to help you along

Gone are the days of being a lone wolf

Contemplate your politics of anger for a moment . . .

Donald Trump personifies hiding behind the surface of this primal emotion
Just observe how he feels justified in building a Berlin Wall around his heart
and greedily buys into a segregationist us and them mentality –
Capturing those sentiments shared by the Fear Factor in others

But Bernie Sanders strikes a chord of an Aquarian we consciousness that resonates
with the collective will of the people in much the same way
as Civil Rights activists transformed their anger into positive and constructive action
Like him, many of us understands that we are all in this together

A more fair and just society belongs to all of us . . .
Equality means that the voices of black folks, GLBTQ people
and others that are marginalized
are just as important for us to hear as humans that sit in privilege

Economic strangulation suffocates all of us, whether realized or not

Are you feeding your inner wise wolf or the angry wolf?

Hope to see you onward up the trails,

Ari
