Posts Tagged ‘Letting Go’

A Full Buck Moon entered into our skies earlier today . . .

Snake slithers out of its dark hole in a spirited way,
coming out of the closet into the light of day . . .

Like primal emotions that get triggered right about now

What feelings are simmering beneath the surface of your defense mechanisms –
waiting to jump out of the deeper waters of your soul?

Metaphorically, our old world is shedding old skins of toxicity . . .

Each and every one of us must release scar tissue that no longer
serves nor protects our sleepwalker ability
to pass through life in a hypnotic trance

Simultaneously, we are awakening to the healing tonic of the snake bite

What layers are we ready to let go of during the intense storms of a
forthcoming August astrological eclipse season?

Do we need more economic strangulation, military might
and escalating violence to wake us up?

How will your relationships with self and others transform and
realign their maps during these blowing winds of change?

In the Northern Hemisphere, summertime is in the air
Social activity and community connections are alive and free-spirited

Summer Solstice’s summit is fading into the backdrop . . .

Believe it or not, we are slowly making our way down the mountain
toward balanced light and dark forces again on Autumn Equinox in late September

Then after that, the dark night of feminine yin energies
will rise until Winter Solstice in December . . .

In truth, know that we are all diverse expressions of Oneness –
We belong to an interconnection that binds us in the
open arms of a loving Cosmic Consciousness

See you up the trails,

Opossum and Skunk are sensible reminders for mindfulness
in the areas of respecting personal boundaries

How many of us say we want to be seen and heard?
But when push comes to shove, that desire does take magical wizardry
In the sense of spiritual intention and commitment . . .

It’s easier to manipulate others and fool yourself into buying
into the smoke and mirrors of a manmade fun house

On the other hand, playing games without even realizing it
is just part of learning how to be human

Ignorance may be bliss, but we might as well
see the eminence front for the put-on as it is

The spiritual journey is a playground . . .

You have an opportunity to flirt with growing pains
but hopefully without choosing strategic diversions that bring on more suffering

Consider listening instead to internal sound waves encouraging
you to hear amplified acousticsĀ of your personal growth

Do this without second guessing your intuitive knowing . . .

Cross over the fence to the love and truth
of your soul’s naturalistic development

Even in the gravely sobering realm of stoic seriousness
There is a court jester that plucks at your heartstrings

How do we make friends with that?

On this Father’s Day, may we know welcome the peak sunlight
of yang’s outward movement . . .

But let us remember the balance of the sun and the moon –
equality between masculine and feminine energies are always in flux

Picture Nature’s theatrical revelation of equal energetic alignment
on Spring and Fall Equinoxes

Sunlight hits its zenith this week on Summer Solstice . . .

And yet, dark days are simmering within inner cauldrons
Until reaching their summit on the forthcoming Winter Solstice in December

Till the next trailhead junction,

A Full Strawberry Moon is rising in our skies this week . . .

Communicative powers of Butterfly’s sociability can empower
you speak your truth with a floating gentleness

Look at how butterflies flap their wings effortlessly . . .
How do they inspire a Tsunami or travel over 2000 miles?

Let the fruits of this Strawberry Full Moon and Butterfly
Inspire you to remember a playful, light-hearted sense of detachment
in your soulful experiences, while awakening the energy of a mythical quest

Like shorelines, dusk, and dawn,
we are living in transformational tides of transition . . .

The Age of Aquarius has shifted from winking and blinking into a
high-octane revelation of a New World arriving full steam ahead . . .

But the Old Guard is afraid to let go of their grip on their view
that Earth is a playground for an entitled few with powers of position

Climate Change, Weapons of Mass Destruction, and puppet masters
Sound the alarm, and hit the panic button for many

There is a reality to buying into an apocalyptic mind-set!

But choosing to dig deep and focus on the reality of inner peace
will ease the heavy burden your soul might carry

Don’t give up your power by reinforcing your fears!

Remember we are all multidimensional beings that have come here
to lighten up our planetary consciousness and universe throughout

Heaven and Earth are co-mingling together,
as movement into we consciousness grows stronger every day

Later this month, Summer Solstice gives us peak power of sunlight
Use the intensity of yang’s masculinity to expand your soul’s awareness . . .

Make friends with the truth that you are one with everything . . .
Even the primitive, reptilian minded, fighting-oriented Powers That Be

You become the change you want to see in the world when you
scuba dive beneath the surface illusion that
we are separated and disconnected from each other

Witness the communion between your inner and outer space!

Till we meet again at next week’s trail head,

Ari

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,

Ari

A Full Worm Moon arrives today along with Daylight Savings Time
Spring Equinox signals the official first day of Spring on March 20th

But seasons don’t come and go in concrete steps in Nature
Her feminine power isn’t always cut and dry like that

Last week, we swam into deeper spiritual waters with Dolphin
Their energies lighten up our energy fields by breathing in
fresh air of play and curiosity in this reality

Imagine being as joyful about seeing humans hanging around
as you might be about living creatures like dolphins or otters

We can learn to connect in our hearts like they do,
yet without sacrificing our intellect

Otter, like Dolphins know how to be playful,
even when minding their daily business affairs

Seriously, you are not a dopey dwarf for whistling while you work
or laughing at yourself with compassionate light-heartedness

The gravitational pull of our world is heavy and serious enough . . .
But don’t let that take away your right to experience enjoyment

Otter can facilitate a sweet sense of surrender,
and relax control issues

Paradoxically, there is security and empowerment in
realizing that no man is an island . . .

Your spirits will feel less tangled up in the blues when you calm
the need to control, and micro-manage every move

The energy of Otter can help you swim into
feminine waters and soften your edges

Through cooperation, we can build new forms of competition that awaken
new co-creative ways toward spiritual balance in our world

See you further on up the trails,

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,

Ari

The psychic powers of Owl peer into the
mysterious darkness of a waning Full Snow Moon

May your spirits ride the thermals of the
wintry winds of February astrological eclipses

Like an owl secretly swooping into a crow’s nest in the night
Nature takes Her course, in spite of the desires of a humancentric New World Order

The Age of Aquarius is gaining full steam ahead
Even if Climate Change feels anything but a Golden Age in current events

In spite of worldly darkness, and snow blanketing the landscape . . .
The light of spring is stirring in the weather underground

Like changing seasons, the law of impermanence reminds us
that it won’t always be like this because the one constant is change

Like all systems, humans naturally resist change . . .
Might as well move with the river of life instead of push against it

Part of making magic is letting go of the Midas Touch
Sometimes live rust is as good as it gets

The Powers That Be do not have the grace of a swan
Nationalistic tendencies want to bring security and order to chaos

It is hard not to be seduced by the power of the dark side . . .

Fear is a seductive hook that lures the fishes of a dying old Pisces Age
into comfortably old familiar nets

Picture an Owl to help you see through the manipulation and control
issues that spring up in your daily life

May you soul awaken to the Universal Love and Truth that wants to set you free!

See you further on up the trails,

Ari
