Like any energy, Weasel Medicine can be worked in positive or negative ways . . .

As such, it can’t hurt to let go of our chronic worries

Instead, let us see ourselves as one human family basking in a
nurturing womb of love and light

Their energy is not exclusive to politicians, nor general welfare of
big government, business, military, and other special interests

Meditate on our Native American shamanic ancestors for a spell . . .
Weasel helped them smoke out the plotting and scheming of tribal conflicts . . .

And then later on seeing through the illusionist curtain of White Man’s burden . . .

Isn’t it curious that most European settlers, and their living descendants
in America today, have more in common with immigrants, refugees
and people of color, than with a wealthy minority that sits at the table with the
privileged minority atop the economic pyramid?

The dirty slugfest between Imperial Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and
number one ranked contender Donald Trump looks like a mud wrestling match

Just imagine what we could do to better our world with the
kind of big money that bribes this farce

Don’t buy in to the commercial that sells “us and them” kind of thinking –
Reinforcing the idea that people with certain talents, should be
put on a pedestal, while others are demonized and are not deserving of equality

It’s seductive to listen to simple solutions to complex problems that
profit off negative emotions that fuel elitist sentiment
about those that are losing ground

All you have to do is to tune into the corporate media to see this comedy of errors

The political will of FDR’s New Deal exerted government’s
power to do the right thing . . .

That was not a popular move among the wealthy back zen, as it is not right tao

The radical act of leaving behind our internal experiences with
projected hellish nightmares, gives birth to inner peace –

Albeit not without the bitter taste of labor pains

Short term gains at the expense of long-term investment
adversely affects at least seven generations

Picture walking in the shoes of those seemingly
different from you in their worldview

Let go of outcome, and stay in the center of the circle of this election week
Don’t get too swayed by anxieties projected into the future

Keep doing that to build empathy in your minds and hearts

See you further on up the trails,

A Full Buck Moon fades into the backdrop
Peak light on the Summer Solstice sets further away on the horizon . . .

Here in Maine, Governor Paul LePage and company
represent developmentally delayed politics

Currently, we witness a parallel process unfolding
in the presidential candidacy of overt bigot Donald Trump

Now back to business with the Clinton’s . . .
Did they really go anywhere?

The torch of a smoldering Bernie Sanders campaign
cannot be extinguished entirely

Because the political waves of social-democratic change is a rising tide
of a New Age consciousness that is still weathering labor pains

Venoms and poisons are toxic to our planet
Paradoxically, we all have an opportunity for personal transformation

May we rework success from an inside out perspective!

We are living in an era where
we are shedding dead skins from a passing old world

In that, an awakening New Earth is cross-pollinating

Don’t buy into the reptilian fear-based mental tapes
that saturate the public mind

Is an alternative vote for someone other than
the proverbial lesser of two evils really a wasted vote?

Or just an energetic vote that moves closer to love and further away from fear?

See the truth of oneness through the eyes of love, light and laughter . . .

Chickadees speak the truth in ways that are gentle and soft . . .
Their energy can help you authentically speak your truth without passive aggression
or other subtle acts of violence

And they can also help you become mindful of your communicative delivery

Some say that the truth hurts
But it doesn’t have to be that be that way!

Perhaps you are pondering whether or not to vote
for the Donald or Hillary in this upcoming American political election

Remember when Hitler perceived America as
having a greater harness on propaganda than Nazi Germany?

Has a big corporation like IBM followed through with reparations from
a genocidal arrangement against primarily Jews to target and dehumanize
the rising tide of right-wing scapegoats today?

And what about all the “right-sizing” big business does to justify laser-like precision
in cutting costs by outsourcing workers to justify cheap labor somewhere else?

Regardless of outcome, it is wise to prepare for the strong possibility that a bigoted
man of silver spoon white privilege will become president yet again . . .

Or arguably even more likely, we will have our first woman take office
Like her or not, that is progress here in America
where still most of our politicians and presidents are old, white men

Synchronizing with a passing new moon,
we need to talk about and entertain new
possibilities in our collective consciousness

Economic strangulation and domestic violence –
primarily against woman, black folks, people of color
and the poor and oppressed needs to stop!

Chickadees are fearless peaceful warriors
“If you see something, say something”

Let go of your fears that a half white black person, woman president,
or an honest candidate like Bernie Sanders can’t win or will be killed if elected

Picture the authentic will of the people’s appreciation over the interest of big money

Remember to stand in your own personal authority!

The black caps of chickadee symbolizes intellect and higher level thinking
There is such primordial power in blackness

Imagine ourselves as a diversified and unified portfolio –
Sharing equal slices of humble pie . . .

We are divergent expressions of Great Spirit

When we look through a lens of equality,
we honor and respect each other’s diversity in unity

In today’s overemphasis on a marketed-sex driven world-view . . .

Human sexuality is as complex as it ever was
But it is a systemic and holistic issue that is symbolic
of our modern world’s libido-centric malaise

Intimacy is a personal issue that projects itself outward
And so it is that masculine-yang desires to express itself
in the rising sunlight of the Northern hemisphere

Just because you are not in the mood to make love
does not mean that you will not enjoy the fruits of your labor

Consider allowing yourself the viewpoint that it would be
healthy to see your follow through in this area to be a private victory
rather than a personal-relational duty and sacrifice

Lynx guides us into the heavens to return our divinity
Breathing in healthy living here on earth

Facing the great North
We return to ancient Egypt . . .

Even back then, Pharaohs revealed to us that “rule by few”
and trickle down economics did not work for the overwhelming majority

Forever watching with Lynx over the sands of time
This cat’s old blue eyes at birth
Symbolizes Father Sky’s depth

Looking back . . .
Slavery has been programmed into human history

Nothing more degrading than working the land on command
As the “land is our Mother”

So the idea you could buy or sell her lifts the veil of insanity
Because “this land was made for you and me”

In American politics today Bernie Sanders spikes the ball with authority
Touching down on this sentiment with the will of the people

While dinosaurs like Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton
Prefer to carry out a moderate Republican agenda
Continuing to siphon the welfare to the “minority of the opulent”

Flash forward to the current season . . .
Summer and Fall training camp prepares us for Winter
So that you can go your own way

Wisdom is to know the Sun still shines
When skies appear as 50 shades of gray
But this famous star is just hiding behind the clouds

Trust your instincts regarding how you feel in the presence of others
A healthy stomach makes it easier to listen to your gut

Silence is a Higher form of honesty
Instant Karma kicks in when we break confidentiality

Clairvoyance is a spiritual x-ray vision that holds intimate information
Just be with that empathic knowing

Nature speaks to us through signs and synchroncities
Lynx helps guide us through the process of discernment

Discover lost treasures stowed away in the
Kingdom of Heaven that resides within you

See you further on up the trails,

Last week, we followed Dog tracks.  Along the trails, I found myself being more affectionate with my family and mindful of boundaries in relationships. While celebrating the Winter Solstice, we noted hot topics of gratitude and letting go, while coaxing back the light.  On the Gregorian calendar, we embark on 2013 and continue pressing onward in our Consciousness’ assent.  We are in the process of Climate Change and co-creating a New Earth right now and you are It.  Some folks were terrified of Doomsday scenarios that promised the end of the world.  Others were disappointed about being disappointed that our dying old world didn’t fall off the cliff, while immediately being transformed into a Golden Age on the day after.  But aliens didn’t take over and Hillary Clinton went to the hospital–thankfully receiving quality health care without worry of how to pay for it.  Soon we welcome the arrival of the Chinese-Lunar New Year, as Spring begins budding underground with Groundhog.  Before too long, we will know energetic balance again on the Spring Equinox in March.  I awoke the other night to a clear vision of a Beetle gleaming across my inner sky.  Like the Sun’s movement across the sky, Beetle moves from East to West.   Mother energy has been revisiting us at this time, as feminine-yin energy is dominant and we are turning more inward.  Meditating on Beetle medicine is like tapping into a mutable orientation.  Whether we are Franz Kafka or an Average Joe, we are all capable of metamorphosis.  Is anyone else inspired by a bug’s capacity to radically change from an egg to a grub stage and then fly away as a winged creature?  In women, this is somewhat akin to menopause or “mentalpause” as I have heard it called.  Do I embrace this heated change or fight it like a war on something I reject? 

During our tracking right now, many of us remember our heavy heartfelt losses.  There is much pain and it is hard to make friends with that.  Picture the horribly uncomfortable position of grieving the death of a partner, while giving birth to a new child simultaneously.  Some folks have lost their jobs, their homes or gone through gut-wrenching break-ups, separations or divorce.  Even our worried well in the pampered West, are waking up to the hard times we are living in.  Others feel like they don’t know who they are anymore and are uncertain of who they are becoming.  In the mystery of Life, has anyone ever lost a loved one to suicide, unexpected death or any other permanent physical good-bye?  It is a mixed blessing to feel the spirit of the season and also really feel the deep hurt and anger regarding our myriad of deeply traumatic soul wounds, including the inequities, pain and suffering on our planet today.  After I lost my mom to suicide, I felt abandoned and forced to enter into adulthood with deeper wounds than your average Bear.  I had already felt that before she whacked herself, but the void widened, part of me died as well.  But it wasn’t the first time I felt that way, nor will it be the last.  Tempting as it was pursuing career goals, objectives and being driven to distraction–doing the inner work is always what yields fruitful  and sustainable returns.  Living isn’t really sustainable until we wake up to our deeper feelings, while stoking the fiery embers of passion and courage to move toward intimacy, while letting go of egocentric avoidance tactics that keep us asleep.  Some of us have fantastic avoidance mechanisms in place that get in the way of us getting in touch with our deeper souls. 

The old world of white privilege is dying too and it is OK to grieve that.  Some white folks feel like they are losing their country and for them, things seem to be getting worse and they are feeling resentful about it.  Some complainants at the top of the economic food chain do not think it is fair that they might have to pay a little more if the Bush tax cuts fade away.  But a simple perceptual shift reveals that when the playing field is leveled for everyone else, there is enough and we can all win.  When I see a community of straight white men going out on a limb and intimately sharing their feelings around a fire and cheering for gay folks being allowed to join our formerly exclusive club–it fills my heart with hope to see Karma being cleared.  Yes, social change is slow and Great Spirit works in mysterious ways.  Human rights, gay rights, gender equality, civil rights, worker rights and culturally sensitive mental health assessments and testing and equal access to resources are all manifestations of our forward progress.  But we need to remember that conservative energy anchors us in our traditions and be sensitive to that too.  Sometimes this looks like taking one step up and two steps back. 

We cannot always be in control of our lives and remain in our inner peace bubble.  Spiritual beings having a human experience need to come down from the mountain and learn to be on the ground with our fellow brothers and sisters.  Sometimes, our securities wane gradually, while at other times they wash away instantly.  We need to remember that we can control our attitude and how we respond to the cards that are dealt, regardless of how uncomfortable we feel about them.  But the democratic process is messy.  We are all in this together and we all have a say in the great waves of changes coming our way.

Stay True,

Ari
