Check out my newly written, non-fiction short story that was recently published in the Edge of Humanity Magazine. Please feel free to click on the link below to see this inspirational writing that captures the the spirit of the “thinning of the veils” season. This writing was inspired by real events that took place in my life many moons ago and honors my Grandma’s presence in my life today. And while you’re at it, give our friends at Edge of Humanity Magazine a buzz by supporting the great work they are doing there:
A positive self talk mantra asserts that the energy of recognition helps you take a different look at yourself. We often have a lot of self-criticism, which influences our self esteem in a negative way. Fear is often the barrier for doing what we really wish to do. Recognize yourself! Recognize others!
Devil inside, are you a better con artist than you are conning yourself into buying into?
Dark Nights of the Soul reveals light at the end of the tunnel.
She illuminates the shadows.
Us and Them segregations are cognitive distortions!
The blind man with his dog on vacation could have seen the Elephant In The Room coming . . .
In the beginning, there was the word.
And discipline derives its ancestry from the Latin root to teach.
A Higher quality of respect comes from feeling safe to learn,
even through peaceful and non-violent forms of tough love.
Fear of consequence avoids taking responsibility.
Karmic leveling impulses are not without natural and logical consequences.
They are not always seen and heard.
Imagine the day the Air Force needs a bake sale to raise money for a 52-Bomber
Take it another step further and imagine there is no Air Force or Death Planes to raise money for!
From this perspective, there are No Fly Zones to fight o’er
the Ukraine or anywhere else for that matter!
They say we have the technology here on Planet Earth
to leapfrog over fossil fuels and send ET back home.
Why doesn’t the Secret Government come out of the closet about these self evident truths?
Taxpayers have the sovereign right to a Full Disclosure of their hard earned money at work!
The more aware that we are of our awakening awareness,
the spotlight of heart-centered mindfulness lays the cards on the table to call out the bluff.

A Full Snow Moon arrives on February 27th, and welcomes back ancestral traditions of honoring this Moon for representing peak snowfall accumulation. If rocks are part of your spiritual path, it’s a good time to let them rest and recharge underneath this Full Moon so that you can recalibrate them in your sacred meditation space. We all need to rest, especially with the cultural war raging on, coupled with the slow melt of the pandemic. It isn’t just the school community I work in that is hitting the wall during these hard times. And the lingering shadows of Old Man Winter are nothing to sneeze at either, if you’ll pardon the puns. But visions of Vernal Equinox, and Big Night, when the salamanders make their romantic midnight run to get it on, dance sensuously in our hearts and heads. How do tiny salamanders make it to far reaching vernal pools against all odds? Indeed, they have great forces of Nature, and lurking predators to contend with. Maintaining perspective is a key dynamic to happiness as a way of life. Patience in communication with each other is critical to that. Building bridges of understanding in our connections with one another will support positive development in human relationships.
Switching horses for a moment, when I think of turtles, I think of survivors. Turtles have been around longer than humans, and have even left dinosaurs in the dust. If you’re anything like the rest of the planet and me, then you could probably stand to meditate on the virtue of patience. Whenever I feel like I’m pushing the river or running the hurry up offense unnecessarily, I try to remember to keep my wits about me by visualizing a turtle to help ground me to the Earth. If only I can catch the wave of a mindful moment to swim with the current by allowing what is to happen, rather than striving to make it happen. Easier said than done. In my younger days, the spirit of Rabbit dominated my energy field over Turtle, as I was almost always on the hop. Who would I be without the charge of my hypervigalant nervous woodland creature energy? Suffering from young man’s disease means that you see faster as better, and competative worrying as a strength. But as my years of living on the planet advance, I feel more connected to Turtle’s spiritual therapy these days.
Furthermore, it is wise to realize that happiness doesn’t mean that we are above or below the tones of pleasant, unpleasant, and neutral feelings. If you are paying purposeful attention to your feelings, then you’ll notice that most of them don’t last more than 15 to 30 seconds. Indeed, they are like a river. So, what’s with all the sensational headliners? Is this suffering really an outrage or will this too so shall pass? Not to project my anthropomorphism onto Turtle, but I do believe their spirits will just watch without any judgment or clinging to any primary feelings or secondary emotions that might arise in its wake. Pretty sure Turtle wouldn’t get seduced into a partisan Congressional quagmired debate. No dark earmarks, bloated military industrial complex budget, Qanon or Trumpamania either. Perhaps more likely, we might entertain a peaceful, and non-violent act of civil disobedience. But melting the ice I don’t think so. This doesn’t mean turtles aren’t fierce or that they’re wimpy. They’ll let you know when they’re angry, and are good teachers on knowing when to retreat into your shadowy shell or let your head out into the sun for some vitamin d.
More importantly, revolutionary spirit is in the air as we move in a New Aquarian Age. But what old ways still have meaning in this New Earth we are transitioning in together? Cocreating Heaven on Earth means that we are getting in touch with the better angels of our Higher Selves to support our universal connection to one another during our shared coexistence on Mother Earth. Diversity in Unity means that we are all connected. Like may attract like, but remember that even opposites attract because the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. All voices matter so that we can honor our differences, and also be true to our oneness. Clearly, there are old patterns and wounds that we still need to release and heal before we can really move forward. Part of that healing is to hear that the attraction to Trump is “a belief that government should not run our lives, and limit our freedoms.” And while I can appreciate the sentiment, he is part of the problem, not the solution. BIPOC and LGBTQ + are not a threat to humanity, but rather weave an integral part of our collective inner tapestry.
For example, take a look at Bernie Sanders as an embodiment of revolutionary spirit, and of working Turtle energy in the positive. Now that’s an elderly white man of privilege that will give you the shirt off his back. All people like him are saying is that capitalism, socialism, and the democratic process can all coexist equally. “The spiritual war that we have in our world right now wants us to cling to these fearful stories, take sides, and blame someone for our pain. We have to remember our togetherness and really what unites us which is our spirit. Our spirit is made of all of the same Divine Light.” Letting go of the Military-Industrial Complex’s concentration of power in our lives is breaking down, and we can see that through the eyes of disorder in our world. There is no one size fits all T-shirt folks. Don’t be tricked into believing that fixed ideas and attachments to them are not the real natural disasters and war drums that divide and conquer us. There is enough, and we can all win. It is unconstitutional not to level the playing field by promoting the general welfare of the public. But isn’t that obvious?
Looking back, we have discussed the growing body of evidence that supports the existence of the UFOs, extraterrestrials, multidimensional beings, etc. But keep in mind, there are many historical reports of these phenomena that existed prior to the Roswell incident back in July, 1947. For example, Leonardo Da Vinci was reportedly visited by “light beings”, and Michelangelo, Christopher Columbus, and Nostradomus reportedly saw some sort of UFO or otherwise unexplained apparent aerial phenomena that shifted their consciousness back then. Also, there are many culturally accepted stories by Indiginous people about “sky people” that trace lineage connections to humankind. Here in America, “multiple states” reported sightings in the 1800s. In his book Passport to the Cosmos: Human Transformation and Alien Encounters (1999), the late Dr. John E. Mack, who was a Harvard psychiatrist, and department chair, came out for his support of his clients that claimed to have been abducted by aliens. Dr. Mack believed that his clients had experienced something real that was traumatic, perhaps that their souls had really been abducted. However, it was unclear whether this experience was physical or more multidimensional in nature. A trauma informed lens would appreciate the meaningful reality of what they went through that had lead to transformational experiences in their consciousness. What is it that we need to revisit in our consciousness? What more do we have to learn about the truth of this phenomena as the Pentagon continues to relax its guarded secrecy, and disclose the information that it has been hiding from us?
Additionally, during this “dreamy” Pisces time of year, it is a time to “let go, surrender . . . (and) connect to our oneness, own spiritual path, mystical side of life, (and) reorder the sacredness of life.” It is within the elemental forces now to examine an old part of yourself that needs to die so that you can be reborn. During this process, we are invited to face our fears, and explore what is hiding in the shadows of our unconscious so that we can “bring love to it.” Meditation on Venus’ rising tide evokes passages through a death/rebirth cycle of inner transformation that reflects an out with the old, in with the new perspective that mirrors springtime. Many moons ago, I remember an old friend saying that she “got depressed” around springtime. This makes sense because it is natural to grieve the loss associated with the death of the old self. You might not even like Winter, but even so it can be hard to say goodbye to yesterday. Remember that we are part of Nature, not separate from Her, nor Her seasons. But the sun of Father Sky still rises to lighten our spirits, and the Moon still shines on and moves the tides. As humans, we are mostly water, which is a conductor of sound frequency, which Whale is deeply aligned with. “We are assisting mother Gaia (Earth) in giving birth. She has been waiting for us, patiently. Her water has broken and we are gathered ’round to assist her in any and every way possible. She doesn’t ask that we prepare in any way. She simply asks us to show up and assist her to remain calm and trust that all will go well in her delivery process. The cataclysmic occurrences on the planet as of recent have simply been Gaia’s very intense labor contractions. She needs us now, more than ever.”
Finally, according to the sacred geometrical Arcturian wisdom, “The energy of frequency helps you remain within your own energy. Quite often we conform ourselves to others, thus raising or lowering ourselves to a frequency that isn’t ours. By proclaiming your truth with love, you will start processes that may influence others. More unity will be visible!” Moreover, inner peace is about a vibrational-dimensional shift that takes place from the inside out. That being said, a trauma-informed/mental health oriented term that is gaining popularity in schools today is called coregulation. When you get down to the nuts and bolts of it, anyway you shapeshift, coregulation is when we are able to influence each other in ways that supports empathic heartfelt connections with each other.
In conclusion, you’ve all heard the old saying, misery loves company. That’s why sympathy cards and gossip generate so much attraction. But generally speaking, neither does much by way of co regulation or helping anybody. There isn’t anything wrong with holding a sympathetic perspective toward someone or indulging in a little news gossip once in a while. There can be an element of catharsis to commiserating with a fellow coworker, peer, friend or family member from time to time. But just know that it doesn’t serve anyone’s well being when it becomes habitual, and ingrained in your everyday life. If anything, this pandemic has taken away the IV drip from the gossip and sympathy addicts. What have been their replacement strategies? While that remains a mystery, a 6th greader I know took my advice and has gone on a news fast, and has reported a significant decrease in his anxiety and paranoid thoughts. Also, I know many people who have started meditating, wearing items of power like crystal necklaces or other spiritual trinkets, playing around with smudging themselves or giving themselves energy baths with essential oils, or playing with chimes, singing bowls or utilizing meditation/mindfulness apps on their phones. These are all gadgets that help you make a dimensional-vibrational shift into inner peace, or become more adept at empathic coregulation. You can always become an agent of change by starting with yourself. Or you could just march to the beat of your own hum.
Take care of yourselves everyone,
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.
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!

A Full Corn Moon reveals its harvest in the skies on September 2nd, 2020, followed by a New Moon in its wake on Thursday, September 17th, and the Autumn Equinox on Tuesday, September 22nd.
Daylight is waning in the Northern hemisphere these days, as is brighter hints of fall in the air, and as seen on the leaves.
Can you hear the acorns dropping from the trees, and popping onto the ground?
Do you appreciate the beautiful rainbow spectrum of foilage on the trees, and the colorful shades of hues that decorate our human family?
Light and dark will be equal again on the Autumn Equinox, and then the dark will rise till its climax on the Winter Solstice, the darkest day of the year after the election and eclipse season are over at the tail end of December.
What new suprises are awaiting us between Tao and Zen?
When I think about squirrels, I am inspired about what they do with their nervous energy. I like the way the channel their chi in ways that find balance between work and play.
Squirrels have an intelligence about them that just knows what to do right now so that they have enough supplies gathered for food security for leaner times ahead.
They seem to know how to have fun in spite of how busy they are right now.
If only we humans can remember that during this season of transition, in our back to school, back to business mentality in schools, and other workplaces.
And even thought they often forget where they bury their acorns, they trust their sense of smell to guide them to dig into the earth to shed light on the mystery of their forgotten fruit.
How they don’t lose their minds, and go nuts in the process is beyond my human comprehension.
Seems to me that our world could stand to learn from our fellow spirited woodland creature friends.
Squirrels show us that they have their own rainbow of diversity. Red squirrels are smaller, but more brazen, vocal, and animated in their approach. Gray squirrles aren’t particularly quiet either, they don’t like strange squirrels, and they aren’t afraid to speak up on that.
But there is an old world respect of the rules that they play by that we humans can stand to adopt, nurture in our own doings, and coregulation with one another.
Black Lives Matter and Me Too are merely accentuating the power of that sentiment, just like a black panther captures the magic and mystery of the primal forces that awaken within the depths of the unknown.
It is a tragic and sad day when another black person dies at the hand of an unfair and unjust playing field that leaves all lives strangulated whether realized or not. It is a suffocating feeling, people are tired, and have had enough. The looting and rioting are chaotic manifestations from that anger.
Preschoolers notice differences but do not judge those differences as better or worse. We are taught to do that, and you begin to see prejudicial thought forms developing by Kindergarten.
Move beyond your judgments and see historical context for what it is. We have all been deceived to buy into a segregated system of us and them.
You may have had the good fortune to have been taught that you can grow up, overcome any obstacle, and be whoever or whatever you want. Perhaps the shade of your skin was not really a factor in that belief because you were raised by well intentioned parents to be colorblind.
But the reality is, that for black people, indiginious people, and people of color, particularly in America, that has not been their experience, from the eyes of the dominant majority or mainstream cultural norms.
Yeah, we’ve made progress, but we are still carrying the luggage passed down to us from our ancestors. The cycle of poverty and mental health issues are also part of that baggage that needs to be released and let go of.
The soul power of these movements represent shifts toward equanimity within our human family, and reflect the universal pillars of Love and Truth.
Especially now at the tailend of one age, while coming out of the birth canal into a new one.
The Virus has been a catalyst to challenge our modern day human paradigm in ways that reveal how isolated and disconnected we can feel from one another, and the world around us.
But then again, that is something we have needed to come to reconcile inside of ourselves.
Because the truth is, led by the power of love in our hearts, is the wisdom to know that we are never really alone.
The feeling of separation is part of our suffering. The way out of this suffering is to find the courage to step into our fears, and trust that we are all connected in unity, regardless of our diversity.
Empathy, sensitivity, and an appreciation for our different ways of seeing the world are good for us to work on, and play with in our consciousnessness.
That doesn’t happen if you aren’t willing to self-reflect about your judgments or take inventory of your thoughts and emotions.
It doesn’t happen if you don’t dig beneath the surface of your anger, or look beyond someone’s behavior to see the whole person that might have been hidden from your initial, cursory glance.
An American election is coming that faces a divided nation.
A radical political action that I take is to see the inner nobility of someone that I am struggling with inside of myself.
And then, I focus on gratitude for the presense of whomever I am targeting as the focus of inner nobility of that person.
President Trump is a good example for many of us on the planet to focus on our suffering that way.
As challenging as it might be for you, see his inner nobility, and focus on gratitude for his presense in your life.
This is easier to do with someone you like, and you know cares about you.
There are a lot of seductive conspiracy theories out there that are part of the fake news that flood the corporate media.
I heard a real humdinger recently, the one about The Donald being a light worker in disguise.
As ridiculous as that sounds, the point of namaste is to see the light in another person that also resides in you.
You don’t just do that with people you like or agree with politically.
The real challenge is to love everybody.
Like Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
We should heed his wisdom, and bring back the spirit of his teachings in our everyday affairs.
Till we tweet again peeps,
When I think of June,
I reflect on the energies of Butterfly,
and the powerful transformation they symbolize.
A Full Strawberry Moon arrives on Friday, June 5th.
It is also a Lunar Eclipse, marking the beginning of an
atypical three eclipses during an astrological eclipse season.
A Solar Eclipse adds heat to the normally rising intensities of
peak sunlight light during Summer Solstice on June 20th,
while the Winter Solstice comes about in the Southern hemisphere.
As such, it will be the longest day of light or night,
depending on where you are on Planet Earth.
The day after that, a New Moon reflects new beginnings of a new season.
And then the last Lunar Eclipse arrives on July 4,
Independence Day in the United States, followed by
a Full Buck Moon on July 5th.
Remember that Deer is symbollic of gentle allurment
into new adventures in consciousness.
Everything is changing so rapidly in the Universe today.
It is more important than ever to be gentle, and kind
on ourselves, and with our one human family.
But that can be challenging when examining institutionalized oppression,
like awakening to the reality of white privilege, white supremacy,
and resentments that run deep from those power imbalances.
What is underneath the protests, and rioting going on right now?
The truth is, nobody wins from abuses of power,
not even those on top of the pyramid.
A system that is set up to divide, and conquer winners versus losers
is unjust, and immoral – regardless of what line in the sand you stand.
Notice how the growing cost of these disparities invite more chaos
to level the playing field.
And then watch how chaos fuels increased security controls,
like the militarization of the police as people take to the streets.
But now more than ever, with the virus affecting our planet, and
the down-bound economic train affecting the human plight –
It appears more self-evident to me that the movement of labor pains are
intensifying as an old world dies, and a new one is being born.
We have been discussing this theme for many years now in this blog.
This is analgous to the way many people choose to have another child,
after their first experience with childbirth –
often do so because they often forget how painful giving birth is,
and how much work the labor of love is during the early stages of child rearing.
Some people say that about forgetting the reason we might choose
to incarnate as a soul on the Earth, or make the agreement to become mortal.
The miracle of childbirth is akin to any rebirth,
as well as the birth of a New Earth.
And within the blessing of these miracles,
there are also courses in curses.
Going back to the familiarity of an old world,
and an old paradigm is akin to the better the devil you know mentality.
Back when Lincoln was President, a lot of people didn’t want
to end slavery or deal with the consequences of systemic change.
Same thing with the 60s, when old roles, and ways of doing
things were changing, as is always the case during
cultural wars, like we are in right now.
There are those who say they just want things to go back to normal.
And yet, the normal we all knew was really a nightmare that was
merely the better devil otherwise known as a security blanket in consciousness.
Some people call the Age of Aquarias a great awakening of
our superhuman powers, a new human, or Homo Luminosity.
When we focus on the positive, and look for the silver lining, it doesn’t
mean that we don’t notice the dark, and stormy.
That would be like an ostrich burying its head in the sand,
or a toddler plugging its ears, and making noise to tune out
the unwanted perceptual experience.
What it does mean is that we can focus on our breath or a mantra to
help us be in the present moment, and realize that we can’t control
everything that happens to us.
Instead of paying attention to the 10,000 things that are waiting to
distract us from the truth of who we really are, we are training our selves
to pay purposeful attention to waking up to self-actualization, or our soul purpose.
But, to a much larger degree, we can control how we respond or
react to what comes our way.
Yeah, it does take work to adjust to the changes that accompany
movement from a grub to a caterpillar to a butterfly.
It is unrealistic to spiritually bypass one form over the other.
Before you can fly in the heavens,
you have to learn how to move along on the ground.
May we recognize the butterfly effect of our actions.
What are you building in the shadow areas?
What will they look like if they were to come out into the sunlight?
Through the polorizing rise in nationalism, and globalism, we can relax this
barrier by stepping into a unified field of awareness.
Just imagine the possibilities of sustainable green energy jobs, access to
energetically clean resources, like quality education, health care, meaningful
work for our human family, and all sentient beings.
Many people were very skeptical when the New Deal came about during
The Great Depression era in the United States.
But when the private sector dried up, and people were without jobs, there was no
more hiding behind the veil of band-aids, and skeleton life support systems.
Humanity does have a tendency to be at our best, when we are at our worst.
And humans do have a strong survival instinct, and are socially driven creatures.
We are creatively cognitive creatures craving meaning with deep feelings.
You can try to quell those with a garden variety of distractions.
But at the end of the day, it would be like
trying to convince a grub to not turn into a caterpillar,
or trying to con a caterpillar not to transform into a butterfly.
See you further along the trails,
Please feel free to check out my recent you tube video with my coworker friend Nick Bucci, and featured guest Paul Knoll:
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.
Till we tweet again peeps,
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,
Here is the link to my new school website. May it be a holistic wellness mind-body-spirit resource for your soul: https://abouse22.weebly.com/
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.
Till we tweet again peeps,
