Sea Gulls symbolize subtleties in communication . . .

Part of mindfulness is noticing body language,
and other non-verbal ways of communicating with each other

But paying too much attention to the depth of subtext,
Might make superficial conversations a challenge

It is easy for folks following a spiritual path to forget how to enjoy themselves
and take the wicked ways of the world too seriously

But if you are not feeling joyful,
what can you do to awaken that experience in yourself?

By examining your inner world in this way, perhaps you might be able to let go of
seeing yourself as a helpless bystander

When you choose to not take the happenings around us personally,
you end up feeling more empowered and less swayed by the ways of the world

Spring Equinox arrives this Monday . . .
Masculine and feminine energies are in equal alignment with one another

In the Northern Hemisphere, darkness is waning, while lighter days intensify
Til the sunlight peaks on the Summer Solstice in June

In the Southern Hemisphere, it will be their Autumn Equinox
Their days will become darker until their darkest day on their Winter Solstice

Beneath life’s herrings, Nature reveals to us opposites are everywhere . . .

Yes, we have lived in a patriarchical dominated world for a long time

But there was a time when matriarchal societies abused their power too
Can you see how a fear of feminine power turned into oppression of women?

Magic, mystery and darkness do not need to be suppressed or repressed
Besides, we tend to fear what we don’t understand

So it stands to reason that we can work on building empathy, curiosity,
and understanding toward others first, before we are understood

Sometimes, silence is a higher spiritual form of communication

Next time you find yourself waiting to speak your mind,
try keeping spirit in for a moment by relaxing your mind, and holding your tongue

Something to chew on,

Sea Gull guides us into new horizons with a New Moon this week . . .

Subtleties of communication teach us to read between the lines
Between land and sea, we hear the mystical vibrations of shorelines

Seagulls remind us that reality has both surface and depth

In their natural habitat, Herrings personify these transitional tides –
Symbolic of land and air within multidimensional realities

The reason the conflict of duality exists –
Is that there is tension of opposites . . .

When seen through our lower chakras –
We see a dirty view of doom and gloom

And there is a reality to that perception

But when perceived through the eyes of the upper chakras –
We see a Oneness and cosmic connection to All That Is

May we collectively see one another, our planet
and beyond from that vantage point . . .

Standing in the space of inner peace we can experience
Expanded consciousness in the Universe throughout

Just say fairly well to a dying old world
Grease your gears by fluidly shifting into the birth of a New Earth

“Let go and let God” . . .

Now is the time to embrace the living moment

Open your hearts and minds to the budding magic, mystery and synchronicity
They want to express themselves to you in the form of unfolding Divinity

Body language is the psychology of communication

May Herring Medicine inspire consuming an ecologically healthy diet
Because we are what we eat

Leaning into our feelings is an intimate soulful dance-step
Yielding to a most sweet and satisfying surrender of vulnerability

See you up the trails,

Sea gulls, or more properly herrings, symbolically represent powers of perception and the subtleties of communication. Hailing primarily from shoreline communities, these creatures understand what it takes to navigate the mystical union of land and sea. While communicative nuances such as empathy, telepathy and other psychical abilities are flying below the radar, even conservative psychology recognizes that humankind predominantly communicates on this level, whether realized or not. Meditation on Herring is good medicine for us to heed their wisdom so that we communicate more effectively with one another. Given our modern technological advances, such energetic patterns are being measured with rigorous scientific data and machinery. While some folks in the healing arts community rely on technology to listen to energetic signals within a client’s body, others prefer using their intuitive faculties as practitioners. Of course, striking a balance is key. Using technology is a tool, but developing ourselves as spiritual Beings is a primary ingredient to a healthy Life diet. Waking up to a multidimensional awareness is not always easy, particularly for those of us who are dimensionally challenged. Awareness leads us toward integrating our emotional bodies, by releasing blockages, with our intellect. Living authentically means that we nourish our souls, while navigating the elements. Consuming a walking meditation way of living is a key ingredient to effectively digesting our soul food.

Waking up recognizes the experience that we have much drama and toxicity on our dying old world. We hear stories about UFO’s and USO’s on air, land and sea. What is going on beneath the surface of our material reality? Whether confidently dismissed or believed as real, we must understand that on some level, there is a reality to the perception that there is more going on here than meets the eye. Beyond a shadow of a doubt, we know the oppressive, Establishment Majority prefers to remain unexamined and hidden. Although concentrating wealth further toward the top of the pyramid is a developmentally delayed perspective, arrogance and greed are powerfully blinding dark emotions that carry a vampire like venom to their bite. We all experience this, but thankfully a growing number of us are allowing maturation to kick in and gather fair and balanced information about what this news has to inform us. Even our more provocatively bullying friends in Congress must be seen as mirrors for our sociopathic, predator like ways that insidiously feed on mass carnage. Humanity all shares predator and prey qualities within our Being–we are all living embodiments of the yin and the yang, masculine and feminine and light and dark flowing within ourselves. Our freewill allows us to live in denial and get stuck in victim consciousness by maintaining blaming and judgmental attitudes. But by continuing to live in this nightmare, even our Nervous Woodland Creature friends would assert that we would be swimming in a familiar old river in Egypt, ma’ chucka. It is only when we are unconscious, spiritually speaking, that we act out in the cannibalistic manner that our Global Leaders are modeling to us from the top down. What is so terrifying about leveling the playing field? Sure we have color TV, but how much better off are folks of color and the overwhelming majority of us in real-time? The privileged few have more now than ever and are relying more heavily on military might to protect that way of life. If corporations are people too, then why can’t they be held accountable for their crimes? Those of us that understand good discipline recognize that natural and logical consequences are powerful teachers, rather than ineffective punishment that foment more terrorism and violence. We have so much Karma to clear. Many of us in the healing profession understand that our system is sick and in dire need of systemic treatment. When the California Coastal Commission asserted no thank you to the Navy’s plan to proceed with their underwater sonar blasts and bombing, Great Spirit and our oceanic cetacean friends were pleased with that vote. Human beings are inherently good and when cultivated with love, sometimes tough love, we learn to effectively integrate our shadow sides into living in harmony with all sentient beings and machines alike. With Mercury in retrograde, it’s a good time to make amends with past relationships and remember patience with respect to the communication signals we are sending and receiving.

Remembering to consume Herring’s spiritual therapy is a sound way to ingest a hearty and medicinal energetic diet. Why not wash our spirited food down with a Divine cup of Sacred Feminine water element? Their spirited teachings help us develop our communication abilities with one another. Welcoming the energy of gulls into our consciousness helps us tune into the harmonic convergence of the Planetary and Universal sound of Great Spirit. Given the spirited energies coming down the pike, it is especially important to stick in alignment with Nature’s shifting tides, while heeding the Universal heartbeat. And it is a sound that resonates in our collective souls.

See you further on down the trails,

Ari
