Busy as a Bee

Bees are symbolic of the sun and his spirited energies . . .

A wake up call to drink in Life’s honey through the
Power of Love, fertility, industry and sexuality

A Tribe Called Bee represents . . .
Groupwork and the power of community –
Without sacrificing our individuality by getting stuck in hive mentality

Working in masculine drones, bees epitomize a strong work ethic –
A parallel process to humanity’s conservative Labor Movement
Queens rule the roost – so their society hints at matriarchal
Paradoxically their culture is hierarchical

The top-down world we live in has roots that are deeply planted
In the underground of our subconscious minds
But Nature has strong leveling impulses to a
Cross-Pollinate a more equitable New Earth
Where flowering power is shared

We dream of a world that does not give liberal affirmative action
To only those with big bank accounts
Out of the primordial, feminine darkness . . .
Dreams of an egalitarian planetary consciousness –
Are wanting to come out and dance in the sunlight

Past Bruce now Caitlyn Jenner’s transformation
Reveals our cultural sprint toward
Crossing over into the shores of celebrating diversity in Unity

Do yo need to examine your own sexuality or your attitudes toward sex in general?

We are healing our polarity

The sting of political correctness glosses over deeper issues with
Superficial “life support systems”
But flying with a playful sense of humor
Sees the light behind this black comedy of errors

Class War is as hot as ever
Fueled by a well-oiled but dirty and unsustainable Stock Exchange
Old World “tinder boxes” are ready to ignite
These are dangerously fiery times we are living in

Movement into a New Age and Paradigm flows into
Rising tides of strong feminine power
We are leaving behind a dominant patriarchical world view
that fears the Sacred Feminine

But the dark night of yin wants to come out of the closet and express herself
This does not mean “sugar and spice and everything nice”

Nor does it mean reacting to our emotions
with stinging volatility or closeted elegant repression

We are witnessing a mass exodus of Bees
Genocide by poisonous pesticides
But they do return once we stop using these toxins

A planet without bees is a world without flowers and fruits
Talk about a buzz killer

“A good worker is a happy worker”

Like bees, humans know there is power in numbers . . .
Dig in to unearth a deeper message beneath the command –
“Be fruitful and multiply”

Are you working too much or not being industrious enough?
Are you taking time to smell the roses and enjoy the fruits of your labor?

Let us spread Love by ringing the Liberty Bell of equality
Get up and stand up to corporate power by asserting that our
Big Businesses should literally stop “killing it” –
It is time to let go of a bottom line intention of maximum economic profits

Bee are helpful guides in the pursuit of our dreams
Sunlight is rising toward its summit on Summer Solstice later on this month
Masculine-Light-Yang is action oriented
Reflecting Nature’s pole vault toward outer growth

Powered By Blue Heron, We Wade Through Life’s Waters With Rugged Individualism

A Strawberry Full Moon descends on our fields early on in the week ahead
A.K.A. Rose Moon on traditional European shores

Heron lands with firm conservative footing
Anchored in an energetic footprint of
aggressive self-determination and self-reliance

Imagine planetary movers, shakers and followers of authentic conservatism
Becoming positive role models of these ideals in their day-to-day operations
Then Heron’s Higher truths would become self-evident

Heron’s long legs cue us to connect with our Mother Earth
Animal Spirits are helpful guides to venture into the Dreamtime
Bringing back wisdom for powerful living when docking back in our waters here

We are multidimensional beings . . .
Our Universe has no place for weapons of mass destruction
It is time to let them go with clean love and clean care

Now is the time to release ego-centered, aristocratic-oligarchical intentions
And move on up into win-win, power to the people global relations

Are you hip to a growing movement of folks traveling into alternate realities –
while leaving their bodies behind?

But meditation on Heron brings us back to the Earth and into our form
Reminding us to nurture our roots growing into the Motherland
We are at home here on Earth and in our bodies
Do you feel Her heartbeat and your own in alignment as One?

Picture the living energy housed in your body
Draining downward from the soles of your feet
Feeling your flowing energy sinking into the ground

Remembering tolerance for others who have not arrived at this
Inner state of consciousness or are less wired this way in their orientations
Builds a foundation of empathy in all of us

In order to successfully wade through the murky waters of a
Dying old world into a blossoming New Earth . . .
We need to quiet our mind into the mindful world of meditative self-examination

It is good medicine to hear when to be sharp
Understand when to stick your neck out and snatch an opportunity and
Know how to stand on your own two legs

Even on the surface –
Nature reflects its depth
We are all mirrors of progressive evolution

Mercury in Retrograde resurrects the ghosts of yesteryear
A death of an old self and revisiting past relationships
Reveals information about the kind of person we want to become today

We need “jack of all trade” generalists in our modern world of specialization –
Opening our eyes to see the “big picture”
There is security in knowing that there are many roads to get to your destination

Heron awakens the ability to readjust our perspective

Flying away from marshes of a “that’s just the way we’ve always done it” mentality
Soaring fluidly into the shores of infinite solution-focused possibilities

The energy of Heron reflects Nature’s changing tides –
Awakening Unity in our collective consciousness
Riding along with respect for our unique diversity

“Imagine there are no countries . . . it’s easy if you try”

Trans-gender bending is part of a transition into a New Age and Paradigm
As is sitting comfortably in your own skin . . .

Not a far cry from women having the choice to work outside the home,
racial equality or men growing their hair long as a
political statement challenging The Rising Tide of Conformity

Rather than robotically doing what the
programmed voices inside our heads and hearts say
we should or shouldn’t do

Heron’s message to us is to listen to the wise sage within

Tasting the Sweetness of Hummingbird’s Medicine and Spreading the Love

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

Riding Out the Winter Tides with Whale

Whale plunges us deeper into the collective seas of planetary consciousness
Fine tuning our eardrums into the life-beat of Mother Earth

Their sonar links us in to Her planetary heartbeat
Good medicine to meditate on our breathing patterns
Especially when feeling stressed about the weather

Whales are dedicated to their family
Their sonar is akin to an acute form of empathy

In the sense that we can learn to listen in
and hear subtle stirrings inside with relationship to self and others

This process increases our sensitivity

Drinking in deep, relaxed belly breathing
Is what’s on tap for a clear walking meditation

Leaving behind a clean wake for others to follow in

What a long Winter season it has been for many folks blanketed by snow
Cold as it is now, a powerful Spring Eclipse season lies on the horizon

Yang energetic intensities are rising
Light and dark forces are moving toward equal dance steps together again

Masculine and Feminine energies will be in equal alignment with one another
Come Spring Equinox in later March

While trekking the great outdoors,
Mother Nature reveals Her feminine power

My oh my, can’t She be unpredictable?
When riding out these changing tides,
It is helpful to tune into the echo chiming in to go with the flow

Picture Whale cresting near a shoreline
beneath the bounty of a mountain range

Can you hear a natural conversational exchange . . .
“Some people can hear themselves think amidst the din of everyday life.
I however need the mountains.”

Love is the answer

Whale blows steam into the waters of an egalitarian New Earth
May our medicine shields release and let-go of
dualities and demonizing perceived enemies

Picture holistic co-creative communities
Clean energy, drinking water, elections
and access to quality health care

The Empire relaxes its militaristic grip
On our Global Village

Good-bye Captain Americas
A Super Power fades away
Peace out to identifications with war-like ideology

Freedom is as freedom does

Are you ready to let go of self-crucifixion?
Might as well come up for air
Instead of drowning in repetitive mental tapes by the voice in the head

The time is now to listen to our “better angels”
So that we tap into our soul potential

Gentle Guidance with Loving Deer

A Full Cold Moon rests deeply within our bones
Sitting along the horizon more than other Full Moons today
Highlighting shorter days and longer nights

What are you thankful for and what do you need to release and let go of?

May Deer’s energetic medicinal teachings of grace, loveliness and sensitivity
Gently guide us through open fields of ceremonial tribal rituals

Do you need more beauty in your life?

Take in a deep breath of cold wind
and then exhale a warm and caring summer breeze

Remember when Buddha first taught in a deer park?

Tis the season for Divine communion and venturing out into new adventures
Blend in like Deer by never following the same trail twice
Good medicine for plasticity of the mind
May your sacred space lead you to new frontiers every time you meditate

Do you need to develop self-discipline, consistency and concentration?

We are embarking toward peaking darkness
Climaxing on forthcoming Winter Solstice

Come on down into our souls ladies and gentlemen
while listening to attached emotions of those in your orbit
Inspiration to develop keen hearing and discernment
through heightened sense of smell

Are you paying attention to your inner thoughts and perceptions?

Meditation on an anything is possible mantra is an optimistic thought
Great Spirit is calling us from the top of Sacred Mountain
Use our power of being soft and gentle like water to inundate
even the archetypal monster of fear that wants to block us from
our Divine crystalline souls

Today’s monster of fear includes systemically connected
climate catastrophe, rural poverty,
starvation and food and water wars among other looming disasters
But so are the solutions to weather these demons
in sustainable ways that are in alignment with Nature

Are you or others trying to force things?

Make love not war with the devilish fashion of negative thinking
Strike a chord of unconditional love rather than
getting strung-out on attachments that aren’t music to our ears

Are you being too critical and uncaring of yourself?

Remember to stick to the facts
When speaking your truth
But please be careful not careless with your whispers
Sometimes, silence is a more powerful form of intimate communication

Do you need to cultivate more empathy, gentleness or compassion for others?

Movers and shakers must compassionately enact the political will to
tip the scale in the right direction toward
a more effective transition into a New Age and Paradigm
This process awakens when elected officials serve the overwhelming majority by
promoting the “general welfare” of our global tribe

Nobody is inferior or superior to another
We are all cut from the same cloth
Merely different shades and statures on an unfolding tapestry

Our Mother is getting hotter and it is time to cool it now yo

At the end of the day . . .
Regardless of classification
We are all The Color of Water

Of Mice and Humans

Pole-vaulting over mouse turds exacerbates a foul ball old sport . . .
Paying careful attention to Life’s details is good medicine.

But be careful of analysis paralysis.

In chewing every piece of what you eat –
You might get trapped.

When bitter digestion arrives, please remember to stomach with grace.

Mouse is an embodiment of organizing and categorizing . . .

Have you filed away some sort of knowledge into a compartment –
for further re-examination down the line?

Remember that unnecessary hoarding and anxious busyness weighs us down.
Sometimes giving away what we cling to lightens up our load.

Is your energy too scattered by trying to do too many things?

Rather than getting lost in our modern world’s distractions and shake-ups –
Perhaps we delve into the largesse of spirit . . .

Tending our soulful gardens and examining our roots . . .

Do you see we are one diverse divinity connected  in Unity?

Or do you see us as doomed demons falling aimlessly down a black hole?

Infinite wisdom is revealed through scrutinizing self-reflection.
Being quiet and unobtrusive is helpful to that process . . .

What is going on right in front of you that was missed before?

Remember to stay alert, make positive interpretations and see the silver lining . . .
While sitting with the present moment with Love and Truth as our ally.

The Point is . . . Porcupine is a Good Reminder that Harmony is a Real Possibility

Imagine a fantastic imaginative conversation between Porcupine and Bear . . .

We are exploring a world where all men and women live in fraternal sorority.

 

And then we see through a lens of faith and trust that

We are in soulful alignment with Great Spirit’s Divine Plan.

 

Isn’t this akin to Otter’s medicinal story that we are all friends –

Whilst the idea of enemies is non-existent?

 

Don’t you know life is wicked good when there is no threat of fear present?

 

Everyday is an adventurous discovery . . .

 

When pricked by our modern adult-centric old world

of fear, greed and suffering . . .

No shame is found in bowing out gracefully –

from overindulgence in intensities of intellectualism and seriousness.

 

Curiosity stimulates our minds and resurrects our souls . . .

Sometimes being present with someone is all we need to do.

In a desire to help, perhaps doing nothing is helping

when our doings might be enabling.

 

Even a grumpy old bear is inspired by Porcupine’s way

of enjoying playfully childlike games.

 

Transformation into a New Age and Paradigm realizes the depth of embodying

Mountaintops of love o’er rocks of fear.

 

The present moment is what it is . . .

Might as well be resourceful and welcome what we need.

 

When we close our eyes in meditation . . .

We self-reflect into the realm of Spirit and see our own inner tapestry.

A most sweetly sacred and blessed communion with Creator.

Past Lives, Past Loves

Previously, in my eyes loving you was all I thought mattered.
But seeing you hurt – your soul and mine . . .
Has left my heart shattered.

I have given enough – I have no more to share.
With you my dear – in our ongoing affair.

Like a Robin in winter – I have flown away toward the light.
Severing energetically coveted ties . . .

Of you from my eyes.

Eternally resting – a peacefully quiet place in my soul reserved for you . . .
Infinitely wishing you peace, love and happiness too.

A Fantastic Meditative Empathic Conversation With Great Spirit

Imagining in the beginning

Nirvana, alienation and nothing in between

And so it was back zen as it is right Tao –
an opportunity to create . . .

(Big Bang)

To know Myself – experientially

Boundless Energy . . .

Now with a point of reference
Of discovery, forgetting and remembering
(sometimes simultaneously)

Who am I?
Who are you?
Who are we?

And where are we going?

Together as One . . .

Never separate . . .

Merely an illusion of disconnection

My creation reveals
My image in you
In the moment of Now . . .

My sleepy children
Awaken from your hibernation
Venture from Plato’s Cave
You must confront your darkest shadows
Before you may bask in the light of your soul

Mindfully Embracing your thoughts and feelings
Connecting the dots of your behavior
Piecing together the mysterious puzzle of

Infinite Intelligence

Sometimes, my apparent grandest creations
Appear timid and weak

Conversely, seemingly insignificant creations
Manifesting as a critical catalyst
For evolutionary growth

Defenses are eradicated
By expanded consciousness and transcendence

Finally understanding my Universal Language . . .

Love is as Love does
