After my grandfather left this Earth recently, I’ve been thinking about my mother,
and grandmothers, whose souls departed our planet many moons ago.

Speaking frankly, my primary caretakers are gone with the wind . . .

And yet they will always be with me,
just as yours that have passed on are with you.

This is a sobering experience,
and not without feelings of grief, sadness, and loss.

Mercury in retrograde is a good time to revisit and reflect on past relationships.

You can also work with the intensities of summer eclipses that
bring back past experiences to the surface.

It can be hard not to wanderlust into an internal widespread panic,
with regards to your past fears or regrets . . .

But their spirits keep on streaming into our world . . .

They want to connect with us in spirit together,
and help us co-create Heaven on Earth.

Can you hear them wanting to help us lighten our load, and feel peace in our hearts?

What baggage are you ready to give back to them that was passed on to you?

Releasing what has weighed you down in this lifetime is a good karmic clearing.

We have all been handed down landfills
that need to be composted, mulched, and cleared.

Yeah, entanglement with form is natural for spirit,
till it leaves its mind-body connection . . .

It is also natural for it to feel free when it let’s go of the ties that bind.

Many of the children that I have worked with have lost their parents to
sudden deaths, such as drug overdoses, homelessness, incarceration, and are now
being raised by aging grandparents, extended family, or the foster care system.

We all need to keep working on love – by being in our hearts with one another,
even when tough love is called upon, do it with compassion.

It can be challenging to know how other people are going to feel
much later in life when their parents leave them behind.

It can bring up unexpected feelings of abandonment.

Regardless of your chronological age, it really doesn’t matter how old you are,
as the feelings you deal with are the same, like with our animal friend pets, etc.

We might process them differently, and we all grieve in our own ways.
But these feelings are universal, and they need to be supported, and processed.

I remember a High School teacher once sharing some wisdom that children
become adults when they wake up to the reality that their parents aren’t gods . . .

Rather they are human beings.

That bell of mindfulness resonated with me back zen,
and it rings true even more with me right tao.

I understand that many people get stuck in a vibration that looks like:

Clinging to a belief that you should hold tight to your loved ones, and
that your children should lean on you.

There is a voice that says that you deserve to suffer, and be driven by
guilt, shame, a generalized sense of duty, and sacrifice, feeling unworthy of
receiving from others, and being afraid of the mystery and adventure of life.

There is a hard-edged, nose to the grindstone security in that mind-set.
You might even feel empowered by trying to control everything in your life.

But it is a recipe for perpetual disappointment, let down, and unhappiness.
And it is difficult to Let Go and Let God in that vibration.

Consider shifting your mind-set into a receiving perspective,
of welcoming your goals and objectives as arriving, but without getting hung up
on the outcomes you desire or prefer . . .

Be open to receiving the abundant possibilities
that you might not have planned for!

Take in your experiences, whatever they are, and observe them as a
spiritual watcher of whatever events come up in your field of vision in real-time.

Till our next walking meditation,

When Kingfisher dives from the treetops into the water – in their catching fish,
these birds show us reflections of new paths, prosperity, and peace

These energies are amplified by the compassionate brightness of
Buddha’s sweet breath of a fragrant Full Pink Moon

This dying old world focuses on a rigid systemic mantra of maximum economic
profit that capitalizes on winners and losers . . .

This segregated matrix proliferates feelings of
rejection, alienation, abandonment, and isolation . . .

But Kingfisher is a healthy radical reminder that abundance is everywhere!

Life has its share of pain, trials, tribulations, and suffering
Mental illness and addiction are taking lives that matter

But Mother Earth’s children can learn from Kingfisher’s energy
that life can be harmoniously enjoyable, and prosperous as well …

New experiences and pathways of inner discovery are waiting to come untapped
Water is a source of creativity, and novel ways of thinking

When leaning into our feelings, and opening up to fluid, free thinking,
We can see down waterways toward sunlight on the horizon . . .

May we awaken our mental and spiritual faculties so that
we can cultivate intuition, and psychic perception . . .

Planted feet on the ground is a centered place for standing meditation . . .

Preface and timing are essential ingredients to luring in opportunities
But letting go of outcome is good medicine to “quit taking it personally”

Dreams and visions can help us traverse
thunderous roads of rocky mountain feelings

Meditation on forgiveness recognizes that
letting go of emotional baggage is a healthy release . . .

Here’s to wishing everyone a sensitive, and high-minded perch
that balances equality between masculine and feminine energies!

See you up the trails,

Saturday’s Full Pink Moon symbolizes the early
arrival of flowers and vegetation during Spring

It has been said that the violence is waking us up . . .

Here we are making the transition from the death of Winter
into the birth of Spring . . .

Love overcomes fear of loss, abandonment, and attachments

During these times of purification, may we power our
April’s cleansing showers with a sunshine and rainbow mantra
of giving peace a chance on the inside and out!

Some say that the truth hurts.
And sometimes, hearing truth stinks like mulch . . .

But we can be gentle in how we speak our truths.
Let us become gentle on ourselves when we hear it from spirit!

Given all the talk about fake news out there today,
now is an opportune time to walk home with Chickadee

When their tweets speak to us, they are helping us connect
and rise up to hearing the singing voices of our Higher Selves

Mercury in Retrograde resurrects revisited experiences with old selves,
past lives, and relationships from yesteryear . . .

Yeah, old habits may die-hard.

But you don’t have to be salty or sugar coat truth
when speaking from a place of personal authority!

In that light, it can’t hurt to invest in loss by heeding the spiritual wisdom to
diminish our collective dietary intake of sugar and salt . . .

After all, we are what we eat, and our bodies are
portals to consciousness explored!

Till next time up the trails,

2017 the number!
Sound the trumpet of the Bald Eagle in thunder . . .

Tragic events like Hurricane Harvey,
and unexpected deaths of loved ones are hitting us hard

But the winds of Climate Change still ride the lightning and strike on rising waters

We all have to work together, and do our part in order to
Trump the Towers that Be . . .

From neurons to neighborhoods,
we are moving into a new frontier of we consciousness

Here in this hard land,
we must move forward by enduring painful tragedies of life . . .

A dirge moves toward the Autumn Equinox, while
songs of waning life, death and dying are blowing in the wind . . .

Survivors guilt always circles around our hearts,
and crops up in our souls . . .

Might as well give ourselves permission to grieve
by leaning into any uncomfortable feelings . . .

May we be guided into illuminating our better angels of compassion and empathy,
given any unwanted emotions we might be experiencing intensely right now

It is harder to hide now from facing the sobering uncertainties of life,
that are magnified by the lack of control that can level our conscious minds . . .

Grandfather Sun is always with us,
even as dark nights move closer in from a shady horizon

It takes a leap of faith to walk into the uncertainty of Infinity . . .
Spirit has a Divine Plan that we might as well surrender to

Picture an eagle’s talons to strengthen your personal authority so that you can
balance earth’s gravitational pull with your free-spirited creative energy

Release any feelings of having clipped wings that hold you back
and welcome your feet anchored in the ground!

Till the next trailhead,

Ari

Out of the soulful black matter of creation
the magical powers of Raven are born . . .

Feminine powers of darkness are gaining momentum now
Pretty soon, we will turn our clocks back yinward

Light and dark energies will dance in alignment on
Autumn Equinox later on in September . . .

Do you feel the subtle changes in the air?
Temperatures are beginning to cool down

The increased nervous industry of squirrels and chipmunks right about now
Reminds us that it is time to get back to school, and back to business

You can mix business with pleasure
Raven sees the mystery with a keen spiritual eye

Spirit is everywhere . . .
Whistling in the wind, and sitting on mountaintops

All you need to do is ask for help
Be clear in your mind and your heart

And then allow yourself to receive . . .

Magic arrives when you remember to breathe, and empty your mind
The birth of relaxation can return to you in the death of another stressful moment

There is no utopia, as Rome wasn’t built in a day . . .

But the time is now to dig deep, and
unearth your own inner peace within . . .

You can do this by adjusting yourself on the inside
by taking the fight out of it, and letting go of outcome

There is magic in letting go of the ends justifying the means
stuck energies of fixed mind kind of thinking . . .

Try to remember this during Mercury in retrograde
during the spacing, and zoning out of rational/logical mental faculties

Instead of trying to figure it all out, or letting these breakdowns drive you nuts –
Just breathe, and go with flow . . .

Instead of challenging others by getting into power struggles . . .
Make meaningful connections!

This is how we co-create Heaven on Earth

Till the next trail head,

We are now in a Pisces time of year,
where our souls want to surf the mutable waters of changing tides

Time to venture deeper and higher into spiritual authenticity . . .

A New Moon and round two of February eclipses are arriving
Death of Winter, past lives, and an old age is becoming more real

Turtle is here to remind us to take shelter from the storm
Paradoxically, letting go of control awakens new beginnings in relationship

Now is the time to nurture and honor relationship with Higher Self
Love is patient and kind . . .

Turtles have been around longer than dinosaurs
They are survivors, with ancient wisdom

Turtle guides us into a Higher vibration of Love
In this dimension, we understand love is about letting go of what we fear of losing

Love is not about trying to control, change or fix someone else
Love is beyond an intellectual concept that resides in the ego’s illusion

Love is beyond tit for tat, manipulation or using your snake oil to
enchant someone else to bend their will to your bidding

A majority of people out there either think they love or hate Donald Trump
But those base emotions just feed his ego, and energize his narcissism

Not to mention drain your own energy field and gives away your power
That isn’t going to help us co-create a New World

President Trump is a metaphor . . .

His presence here is a sign of the times – a key dynamic to
becoming the change we want to see in the world

At the end of the day, any con artist with the King Midas touch is conning himself
by believing that everything he touches will turn to gold

A Phoenix doesn’t rise until it has burned in the ashes first
This is symbolic of where we are at on the clock of Father Time

Empathy in action realizes that President Trump is part of us, like a grain
of salt or star-dust in the cosmos – none better nor worse than another

Spring is arriving, and pretty soon light and dark will be in alignment again
on Spring Equinox in later March . . .

Energies are intensifying, and it becomes a time ripe for action
as we move further into the masculine energies of yang’s light

Remember, we are all One, albeit diverse expressions of Great Spirit

See you further on up the trails,

As a suicide loss survivor, I understand how tragic and painful it is to
lose a loved one to an untimely and unexpected death

Many souls have left our planet at this time of year . . .

Regardless of how our loved ones die . . .
There is a deep hurt from the great void that follows

It can be challenging to hear the flat musical dirge of the funeral procession . . .

Sometimes, we are left with regrets about unfinished business . . .
Revisit those relationships, and picture them now with love and light

It takes letting go of old wounds to
expand personal identity and boundary development . . .

It can be hard to understand how not to take the pain of another personally . . .

This world can be a hard place to live,
especially when you are a sensitive person . . .

It is possible to remain your authentic sensitive self,
without slaying the dragon that breathes fire into your natural entity

But it is not always easy, nor does it always feel good or graceful . . .
Part of healing, is getting scorched

May the light of Christ Consciousness enter your being,
and allow you to feel the joyous spirit of Christmas . . .

Are you following your bliss?

May we see the light beyond our grief and loss . . .

Even in darkness, we all have an awakening light within
that wants to express itself in the outer world

Look at the bright side of Standing Rock,
There is an expression of a powerful solidarity in our common ground . . .

Everyday people are standing up to the Powers That Be . . .
Wounded soldiers, and common folk alike

Look back on the old story of gentle Deer gazing into the eyes of a
powerful Demon blocking the trail on the mountain en route to Great Spirit . . .

Remember that Deer did not back down out of fear . . .
She asserted Her right to climb the mountain to connect with Great Spirit

The way, the truth and the light is listening to Kingdom of Heaven within,
and welcoming the Divine Light of our Being . . .

We all have it, even if we have forgotten

Brighten your spirits by firing up the lights of your inner Tree of Life . . .

Climate Change is an inevitable part of a seismic shift in our
collective consciousness or Great Awakening . . .

It will blow your mind, and shake your soul to its core . . .

See you further on up the trails,

Ari
