Hummingbirds are good reminders that humming to ourselves
inspires a powerful potential to lighten-up our energy fields . . .

We all become guardians of the galaxy when we heed the
sweet surrendering sound of hummingbird’s call!

As Summer Solstice rapidly approaches,
growing energies of sunlight are intensifying

Revolutionary raised firsts to a power to the people mantra is bringing the noise

Judging yourself or someone else as a powerless victim of circumstance
feeds your enslavement by those in positions of power

We all have to do our part by awakening to our own personal power!

In this process, we move further along the co-creative trails
of inner peace and we consciousness . . .

Perhaps you feel stuck in the sinking sands of a personal swamp . . .

Just let your guilt and shame go by imagining a truthful, yet loving
perceptual lens shift into the shape of authentic personal discovery

Follow your bliss and discover the joy within your being
Even if you doubt the reality of that perception

Just imagine the possibility of Hummingbird showing you
the inner spacial landing pad of inner peace

Where nothing else matters but the vibration of healing old wounds
that get in the way of you experiencing heaven on earth

Hover over an aerial picture of peaceful, relaxing and calm thoughts
reflects internal imagery of transformative healing

See you further on up the trails,

Ari

Hummingbird guides us into the realm of joy . . .

Lighten-up and follow your bliss!

Be inspired to drink in the sweet nectar of a waxing Full Flower Moon
that springs into action on Saturday, May 21st

Part of happiness is the wisdom that we are not always going to feel happy
Plenty of other thoughts and emotions will fly into our energy fields

It is painful to ponder the 10,000 ways we might enter the valley of death
Are you familiar with the ring tone of the negative beats that
rap through the vibrations of the lower chakras?

But you can just sit here watching the wheels go round and round
Let go and watch the world turn

Perhaps you are enraged by chem trails or heavy metals in squirrels
Maybe you are grieving dying trees, institutionalized racism and class warfare

Or do those that bury their heads in the sand like an ostrich cook your grits?

If only we harmonize with our conflict,
then we heal the trauma of duality

Open up your eyes to seeing oneness in Nature’s totality

Hummingbird guides you into a most sweet and satisfying celestial seasoning . . .
A space of inner peace where you can swim in the waters that madness drowns in
Might as well suck it up and hum through your more painful moments

The New Moon in the past had a strong gravitational pull
Earth-centered folks probably felt a greater tug of war than
their more free-spirited birds of a feather

But that’s OK, it just reminds us to deepen our empathy for our diversity
and temper our sensitivities through compassionate understanding

Look to Nature to show you that everything is fleeting and transient
The only constant is change

Humming is a powerful mantra, especially with Mercury still in Retrograde
It is a good time to hover over right-brained, mysterious,
illogical, unpredictable and meditative systems of thought

Intuitive, spiritual realms of alternate realities abound . . .
Trying to mold circles into square pegs will drive you crazy

Hummingbird reminds us to stop and smell the roses
Because life is what happens when you are busy making other plans

Meditation on Hummingbird’s ability to fly in all directions
Awakens multidimensional maps for heightened perception

Stop on a dime and hold your position for a moment
Examine any fixed-mind thought forms and relax with flexibility
for a sensuous spell of the eternal now

Effectively weathering Climate Change requires a shapeshifting of
adaptability and mutability

May we harmonize with our environment

See you up the trails,

Ari

Hummingbird guides us into the realm of joy
Lighten-up and follow your bliss
by breathing in the magical fragrance of Life’s floral arrangements –
This is the essence of Hummingbird’s message to us

The power of Love strikes a chord with an open-heart
Conjured up in the sweet nectar of Nature’s way

But in order to taste sweetness . . .
We are given a choice to –
Drink in what was, is and will be
Sometimes in the uncomfortable company of vulnerability . . .

Yes, it can be a wild world out there

But what a colorful and fragrant Mother Earth She is . . .
The Kingdom of Heaven is waiting to be seen and heard
When our “doors of perception are cleansed”

Are we able to harmonize with the Celestial music within?

Humming brings you into a mystical vibration . . .
Where you can swim in the waters that madness drowns in

Use the power of a New Moon on Monday
to sail with the winds of change blowing into your consciousness
Look to Nature to show you that everything is fleeting and transient
But magical and sacred nonetheless

Try not to resist what is because it will then probably persist more if you do

Humming is a powerful mantra with Mercury now in Retrograde
As we flit away from logical and rational systems of thought

Into more intuitive and non-localized realities
Let go of trying to “figure it all out”

Although you are likely to miss out on Hummingbird’s magical powers
if you forget to stop and smell the roses

Or if you are distracted by repetitive mental thoughts,
emotional reactions to those thoughts –
and unconsciously acting out anxiety driven, deeply engrained behavioral patterns

Hummingbird leads our Great Awakening to
“solve the riddle of the contradiction of duality.”

Life throws us curve balls so that we keep our eye on the ball
Perhaps the home run transformed into a foul ball
But the strike-out ended up being fair play

Learn to fly in all directions

Hit the pause button from your judgments for a spell . . .

Relax!

Our material world can be seriously heavy brothers and sisters

Bottom line the point is that

Breathing in Spring air sometimes makes us sneeze and hits the nail on the head

Hover over changing weather patterns

Trust in the process of seasonal adaptability with internal mutability

You are never alone . . .
We are all connected . . .

“there are people who hurt you” but you can learn to trust and love again

How or why is your heart crossed?

Have you done something callous to another,
causing them to shut off their love they once felt for you?

May every one of us feel an authentic sense of belonging –
A deep knowing that a network of Spirit Guides
are always available to us if only we ask

Intrinsic equality will reflect in our outer world
when we look upon our Planet through a lens that values Diversity in Unity

Lean into the grounding gravitational pull of your pain

and begin to see your sorrow as your joy on the opposite side of the same coin

See you further on up the trails,

Ari

Awakening our flowering consciousness . . .
Relaxing internal tension of opposites by
humming spiritual high notes –
Heavenly music to our ears.

Being open-hearted has a positive cumulative effect –
palatable to tasting Life’s sweet nectar.

Got ugly? Are you hovering o’er harmonic discord?
Strumming to the tune hummingbird
Helps us fly away . . .

When speaking of the prophetic return of the animals
and disappearance of white people –
We are talking about a metaphorical
shedding of our old dead skins . . .

A Great Awakening, levitation and illumination in consciousness . . .

Finding our inner joy is outward sunlight expansion into our
world for others to enjoy in material realm.
Getting stuck in the mud of bad moods
pollute our inner and community gardens.

In this place?

Picture a hummingbird and drink in its medicine for a spell . . .
Perhaps your cup will be full from
directionally darting toward feeling mystically well.
Flitting away from waning Full Moon and Spring Equinox –
Toward the Summer Solstice.

Release caged in judgments and set them free with relaxing energy.
Opening up our heart-centered joyful experiences of
Magic in our politics of living.

See you further on down the trails,

Ari

I remember when hummingbird spoke to me while sitting in the woods recently, taking in the wonder of the natural world around me.  However, the message didn’t arrive in English, there were no other humans present to judge that and I didn’t ask if my nervous woodland creature friends had any green cards.  Admittedly, I was almost fooled by my fleeting encounter with hummingbird, as some dragonflies flitted about that nearly cloaked hummingbird’s presence.  But I recognized a slight acoustical variation and felt the great power generated from its spirited wings moments prior to my eye-witness encounter.  And then a leave fell in front of me and I observed a slight tremor in the Force (Chi), if you will, by noticing a slight change in color–evidence that Autumn is on its way.  In fact, the Fall Equinox rapidly approaches us on September 22, 2012 here in the Northern hemisphere, on Classroom Mothership Earth.  Hummingbird reminds us to find joy within our Being, regardless of what trials and tribulations we have been through and whatever roadblocks we may encounter down the pike.  Given hummingbird’s ability to fly in all directions and stop on a dime by hovering in dead air, I wonder if Barry Sanders had a hummingbird as spirit guide?  When meditating on hummingbird, I am reminded of great Master teachers like Jesus and Buddha.  Have you heard that these God-realized humans lived with the spirited wisdom that while taking life too seriously is foolish, being naturally playful and child-like is best medicine.  When having an open, passive attitude toward life, we welcome an abundance of positive energy that is free and clean fuel for our collective soul.  When meditating on hummingbird medicine, we allow ourselves to consume the sweetness of life in a balanced way–a harmonic convergence spirit-mind-body, so to speak.  As humans, if we want to change our trajectory on our planet and the Universe, then we need to leave behind a cleaner Carbon Footprint that walks in alignment with Nature.

Has anyone out there ever heard the joke about when the Italians “discovered” America and one Native American looks to his friend and says, “there goes the neighborhood?”  Well, when I caught wind of some of the Republican National Convention, I couldn’t help but get swept off my feet by the whirlwind of pep rally energy.  Anyone duped by the political rhetoric of Republic ideology is lured into the conceptual framework of their platform–specifically the Ron Paul ring-tone of libertarian, rugged-individualism that plays on natural sentiments of the audience.  Admittedly, I was initially surprised that our current moderate Republican President, business candidate of Wall Street, was not featured in front of the podium.  Instead, we paid for the privilege to be propagandized by some rich guys, that were placed in front of our telescreens by some really rich guys that feed this corporate mob during the liberal pour of their dog and pony show.  But I can appreciate why right-wingers like Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan and master illusionist Carl Rove want to keep moderate Republicans like our current President out of the room, without a chance to defend himself in this ego-centered debate and charade.  Did anyone see Clint Eastwood steal the show with the empty chair?  True, Obama is still a mystery and it is normal to fear what you don’t understand.  But many of us are wise to their act.  Soon, we will see act two with the Democrats, but what we have here in the USA, is a one-headed, two-party system that is one step away from a dictatorship.  Even the pathetic Democratic party, that fronts itself as working toward its democratic principles, is fed by the same high octane Tea Party and deep pockets.  Doesn’t the film that is sold to us read like a parody of a fairy tale that you are embarrassed to read to your grandchildren?  Are we being fleeced and caught up in a golden straight jacket?  Here in Maine, governor Paul Le Page boasted like thieves after a looting, while being received by thunderous applause, he bragged about meetings held in secrecy to push forth an agenda that undermines worker’s rights, public education and welcomes more abundant pillaging of our Mother.  Personally, I feel an empathic compassion for Le Page, in the sense that he doesn’t see himself as a house slave that has forgotten his brothers and sisters in the field, while serving his master and overindulging in the excesses of Mansion on the Hill.  Who payin’ you?  Have folks forgotten that this country was built off the backs of free and indentured labor?  Would there be an American Dream, if it were not for the sacrifices of our Native American and African-American brothers and sisters and many other colorful folks?  And yet, when we gaze upon the chimes of freedom and see our friends in Congress, do we see equitable representation of their hard labor?  Is the Middle Class being fairly compensated for their hard work?

But I didn’t write this blog entry to change the world in one fell swoop.  Rather, in spite of the intentional boxes that are programmed into our collective psyches, perhaps we might allow ourselves to find a breath of fresh air in hummingbirds mantra that life is full of joy and re-program ourselves from inside out.  Are you allowing yourself to taste the sweet nectar of life, a moderate indulgence of sugar and the like?  True, most of us didn’t grow up in a Mayberry like fantasy, but we all have the power within to transcend the hypnotic trance suggested to us by the master illusionism that hides behind the curtain.  Remember the wise old saying, “the truth shall set you free?”  But don’t take my word for it–please consider testing out the power of hummingbird’s medicine yourself.  Maybe the next time you find yourself feeling swayed by a carefully crafted commercial, you will picture a hummingbird and start humming to yourself.  There is powerful energy in sound and humming is a natural way to energetically wash your spirit-mind-body and access inner joy immediately.  In this light, we peer into the realm of infinity and co-create a New Earth, one step, one breath and one moment at a time.

Stay True,

Ari
