  5. An Inner Independence Day Revisited

A New Libra Moon on October 6th reflects an energetic interplay between harmony and equilibrium. How do we walk in the center of the circle in the yin and yang of life? When I think of this New Moon, I think of Bat flitting about in the air but not without hanging on the rocks of the cave in the underworld. We need our air and our feet on the ground to walk the spiritual path. Not coincidentally, the recent Autumn Equinox in late September revealed perfect balance in Nature between light and dark energies, with further movement into the dark as we move yin-ward till the Winter Solstice in December.

In Ojibwe, the Full Moon on Wednesday, October 20th is called the Freezing Moon. There are many names associated with this Full Moon, but many of our ancestors called it the Hunter’s Moon because it signaled peak hunting season in preparation for the cold winter ahead. This month also features Civil Rights calendar highlights of Indigenous People’s Day on October 11, Learning Disabilities Awareness Month and LGBT History Month. Last month was National Hispanic Heritage Month.

Full Hunter Moon symbolizes a metaphorical death of the old self. Do you see the veils thinning between the spirit realm and our material world? Remember that with death, comes rebirth. Our past lives are meant to awaken our soul’s evolution, and impetus to expand beyond what we were. Bat guides us through the dark night of the soul so that we can hear the spiritual callback of metamorphosis, and who we are becoming. Our ancestors celebrated the Samhain — the approximate halfway point between the Autumn Equinox and Winter Solstice.

Next time you feel afraid of the dark and want to run away from the shadows
Picture a Bat to hear the melodious wind chimes of spirit echoing back so that you can hang glide into your own power. How is who you were when you were littler, different than who you are today? How might you be different tomorrow or in the days ahead than you are right now?

Bats echo a ring tone of the metaphorical death of the old self

But hang in there folks  . . .

Like the changing leaves, Nature reflects a metamorphosis coming . . .

Our inner world is ripe for change, especially during these transitional times

Facing our fears head on is less scary

than avoiding situations based only on our fear-based projections

A Full Hunter’s Moon signals that it is time to hunt enough food

in remembrance of an old traditional preparation for winter storage

Do you see the veils falling back?

They are leaving behind the dirge of an old world

Spirited energies are hanging around our planetary consciousness –

Bursting at the seams to turn our world around right side-up!

Now is a good time for rebirth by looking at our world with fresh new eyes

Venture back your childhood innocence . . .

What unexplored caves of your hidden self are wanting to be discovered today?

What novel solutions are waiting for us to tap into

as we move through a purification process of releasing and healing old wounds

so that we can give birth to a parallel New Age?

Hear the echos of spirit whispering who we are becoming . . .

Commentary:

Like the seasons, the one constant in life is change. Bat symbolizes this awareness and can help you awaken to understanding that transformation and metamorphosis are real possibilities during your human experience as a spiritual being. Even in stagnation, the power for change is always possible. While our bodies die and we only exist once in this form, it is wise to entertain that our souls have experienced past lives and will rebirth into further lifetimes down the line. But regardless of whether or not you believe in Reincarnation, we all journey through many deaths and rebirths in this current life form. You are not the same person now as you were then. And you will not be the same person tomorrow as you are today. Every every single snowflake has something uniquely different in its expression, yet all are made mostly of water, just like we are. Water ebbs, flows and changes its trajectory just like we do. Sometimes personal and collective transformation comes on like a Tsunami and sometimes the process begins as a soliloquy before becoming a grand performance. Perhaps you remember a time in your life where you were just sort of hanging around daydreaming. And then you learned to stand with your feet firmly planted on the ground. But now you have learned to spread your winds and fly in a way that feels like you are hang gliding through life.

Take care of yourselves everyone,

Ari

Autumn Equinox Yields A Full Harvest Of Falling Leaves Under The Moon & Dreaming Lucid Lunar Dreams

May the light of this moon shine on your soul

and leave you feeling an inner energetic balance in your walking meditation.

May the changing colors of Autumn’s leaves brighten your spirits

and soften your field of vision.

Notice how the squirrels reveal the balance between work and play.

Do you see how they learn through imitating each other?

Witness Social Learning Theory at play!

September Serves Up A Hearty Spiritual Plate with A New Moon in Virgo, Autumn Equinox and a Full Harvest Moon

  5. An Inner Independence Day Revisited

September’s Full Harvest Moon reaches its peak on Monday, September 20, 2021. But before that, a New Moon in Virgo arrives on September 6. New Moons always carry the energy of new beginnings, novel ways of perspective taking, and allurement into new adventures. Admittedly, Summer’s festive energy can hard to say goodbye to. Like any change in seasons, transitions are not always easy to navigate. Fall is a good time to balance getting back to school, back to business, and manage busy schedules. Squirrels seem to embody Virgo energy in the way they anxiously and intensely sniff out disorder, but not without balancing doings with fun through imitation and play.

September is a unique month because it is commonly referred to as either a Harvest Moon or Corn Moon. Because this Full Moon is nearest to the Autumn Equinox on September 22, it is called the Harvest Moon. In Ojibwe, it is called the Falling Leaves Moon. Our ancestors noticed that the moonrise would come soon after sunset, so the abundance of natural bright moonlight allowed for plentiful harvesting of summer crops.

The Fall Equinox is Nature’s way of reflecting equality between the energies of masculine/feminine, light/dark, yin/yang. After that, our clocks turn yin-ward as our days begin to get darker till we hit the Winter Solstice, the darkest day in the Northern Hemisphere on Tuesday, December 21. In the Southern Hemisphere, it will be the Spring Equinox in September, and then Summer Solstice in December. Energetically, Equinoxes and Solstices are good times to entertain opposites, meditate on wholeness and relax on polarities in your consciousness.

A Full Harvest Moon yields wisdom that it is nuts to keep doing the same thing over and over . . .

And expect different results.

Now is the time to get back to school, back to business, get organized and prepare for a rainy day fund.

Autumn Equinox is Nature’s way of showing us equality between masculine and feminine energies,

both within our beings and in the world around us.

After that, dark yin forces wax on until they climax on the Winter Solstice in December.

When you think you’re out of supplies, losing your acorns and

feeling like your being driven nuts;

Picture a Squirrel to help you

prepare for back to school assignments projects, tasks

and other responsibilities.

What are you doing to get ready for going back to school?

Are you working with your parents, grandparents,

guardians, coaches, teachers, family members
or other caregivers to help make

a successful change in your daily schedule?

Squirrel guides us into the realm of getting back to school and down to business . . .

While looking at the weather forecast ahead, 

we are preparing for a winter storage or a time when resources are less plentiful.

Picture sobering up, getting organized and cross-referencing your planner

so that busy fall schedules will not drive you mad!

Squirrels are a good reminder that solid mental health looks like

the realization that doing the same thing over and expecting different results –

is likely to drive you nuts!

Autumn Equinox reminds us of the transitory balance of light and dark energies . . .

Yin (Feminine) and Yang (Masculine)

Are dancing together in equal dance-step.

In the Northern Hemisphere, we are moving further into the dark nights of our souls

to reach its zenith on the Winter Solstice in later December.

On the opposite side of the same coin –

Our friends in the Southern hemisphere know a similar energetic balance by

awakening to a Vernal Equinox in their Spring.

They will see the sunlight expands as darkness contracts

Reaching its climax on the Summer Solstice.

At this time, Nature reflects a most sweet and satisfying sensual equanimity . . .

If only fleetingly and transient

Commentary:

Fall and Spring Equinoxes are similar in the sense that masculine and feminine energies are in balance and reflected that way in Nature. Given that we are part of Nature, these are good times of year to meditate on these energies fluctuating together in natural equality both intrinsically and outwardly. This is an especially good time of year to marvel at the co-creative universal impetus for an egalitarian New World. Of course the building blocks of this new way of living on this Earth starts with you! The light of masculine-yang is the opposite side of the same coin as the dark of feminine-yin. We cannot get to the light unless we traverse the dark. Conversely, we cannot know the dark unless we walk in the light. Yang is expressive and outward in its movement. Yin, on the other hand is receptive and inward in its expression. Those of us in the Northern hemisphere can stand to realize that our friends in the South are experiencing energetic alignment in much the same way we are, absent they will be moving in a masculine-yang-light direction, whereas those of us in the North are moving in a feminine-yin-dark direction. If you prefer the dark and it is the opposite time of year where you live – the good news is that you have something to look forward to. In the meantime, we might as well find a way to accept, appreciate and even embrace the opposite of our energetic preference.

Take care of yourselves everyone,

Ari

Soul Liberation!

When gently gazing at my disease to please in the mirror . . .

I compassionately see your own need to be needed reflecting back at me.

Are they really any different?

Such attachments invite seductive medications, like band aids or other life support systems.

But when we find the courage to go beyond drinking the Kool Aid or ingesting anesthesia;

We have the opportunity to take back our projections.

There is an awakening into a mystical quest through the Dark Night of the Soul . . .

A rebirth flickers like a light at the end of a tunnel.

These inner dimensions are worth examining!

Old relationships have been built on the bonds of attachment.

When they burn in a funeral pyre, they are called by the fire to transform.

Alchemy is sparked on the inside.

A ripple effect is felt by others, whether realized or not.

This is cosmic karma at play . . .

When a minority healthy perspective lives in a room full of insanity,

it is easy to be seen as an outcast.

Because from the position of normative madness,

wellness can feel like the odd man out, or woman if you are one.

Except that from a clearer perspective,

you see from a new reality that is now as obvious as it once was hidden.

Another entanglement with form has been released . . .

A dismantling of an ego-identification is not without feelings of loss.

And then there is grieving in the death of the old self with that.

Spirits are lifted and freed from their entrapment of excess baggage.

There is a relaxation from feeling suffocated or feeling tugged on by suffering.

A full bellied breath of fresh air is empowering;

Now that’s soul liberation!

Here is an inspirational old folk song that I recorded recently:

The Return of Dragonfly And A Full Sturgeon Moon On Sunday, August 22, 2021

The Full Sturgeon Moon peaks on Sunday, August 22, 2021 at 8:02 A.M. Eastern Time. Our ancestors named this Full Moon after Sturgeon because August traditionally represented the peak seasonal catch of these mighty fish. Fish are highly sensitive creatures, and water is a powerful conductor of sound vibration. Keep in mind that humans are made up of mostly water. It is scientifically proven that we can influence our thoughts and can co-create our reality through the power of positive self talk. Might as well give our purposeful attention toward collaborative co-creative, fluid thinking over fixed, stagnant ideas. If there’s a fish that captures the expression ‘stirring the pot’, it’s Sturgeon. Given that Sturgeon have been around for over 130 million years, they reveal a survival instinct that should catch our attention, if you’ll pardon the pun.

Spiritually, Sturgeon’s ability to thrive, in spite of the many Climate Changes they have faced over millions of years, truly reflects their resiliency. Now more than ever, humans need to cultivate resiliency on our Planet today. Like Sturgeon, we have a strong survival instinct. But we could stand to build our resiliency at this juncture so that we can weather the changes in Ages we are now facing. We need to understand our interconnection with each other and all creatures from Mother Earth and the Universe. Co-regulation means that we can be in our heads and our hearts with each other in ways that both honors our diversity and recognizes our unity.

A Full Sturgeon Moon awakens the magic of color in the theater of life.

But be careful of getting caught up in your own fantasies

of turning everything you touch into gold.

True wizardry is the knowledge that eating humble pie is good food for the soul.

Follow Dragonfly’s flight plan for a magical mystery tour.

Imagine flitting about with a playful, light-hearted sense of detachment in your energy field.

Have you ever heard of the story of the Emperor’s New Clothes?

Picture a Dragonfly to add color to your Life

Flit away any burdens your soul might be carrying

You don’t have to plug truth into a computerized search engine to learn about

what is really true and real

Are you focusing on what others are telling you?

Or are you paying attention to how people make you feel on the inside?

Dragonfly inspires us to be light on the feet –

with magical colors of waning sunlight

See through illusionary smokescreens through the

laser precision eyes of a spiritual watcher

What hidden aspects of yourself want to come out into the sun and

dance in the daylight for others to see?

A Full Sturgeon Moon signals a peak seasonal catch . . .

Might as well swim with the current instead of pushing against the primordial power of water

Dragonfly breathes magic and color

into the ordinary doings of everyday life

A long time ago . . .

Dragon had the Midas touch of always going straight for the gold

But a wise guy called Coyote tricked Dragon by shrinking him down to a fly

so that he could eat a slice of humble pie

Do you need a change in habit?

What good are your lucky charms

If you get consumed by your own facade?

Let go of the shores and surrender to Life’s oceanic bounty

Are you holding yourself back with programmed beliefs that want to

break out of their boxed in mental compartments?

Lighten up by picturing a dragonfly making dazzling aerial feats

in the wide open vastness of your infinite inner space . . .

Ask for directional guidance to see through illusionary smokescreens –

Allow transformational pathways to become self-evident truths

Summer is a powerful time to act and create change in your life!

But it won’t be long before Nature reflects a colorful transition –

when Autumn leaves behind fleeting energetic balance and fallen old selves

Life is a mystery – isn’t the destination really the adventure of the journey?

Commentary:

August is a mysterious month. It is a time where it feels very much like the heat of summer will last forever. But even early on in the month – if you look carefully, you can see subtle evidence that fall is coming. Perhaps it’s a fallen leave or a hint of color that looks out-of-place in a treeline of green. Dragonflies are colorful creatures that do incredible feats. They are good reminders that it is a magical, mysterious and colorful world out there. Use their energies to see through the smoke and mirrors and awaken a more authentic and meaningful life experience. Remember to get out and play outside and meditate on the healing application of water.

Take care of yourselves everyone,

Ari

In case you missed it, here is a Chakra meditation video demonstration that I recorded recently. You can also find a multimedia description on the meditation page of this website:

When The Ship Comes In Revisited

Artwork by Barbara Merlotti

The voices of trauma’s Tsunami can come on like a perfect storm . . .

Reoccurring behavioral traps are good at getting hooked into edgy coral reefs!

They are awakening the liberty of oceanic sea salts fore dissolving deeply engrained wounds

that hide away our souls in grottos like mermaid castaways.

May we rework new growth and transform gnarly old barnacles into new vegetation

that eat up toxic pollutants.

When the ship comes in to A New Earth,

may we energize our bodies into luminous beings.

As the tides rise,

erosion intensifies and lands dry up . . .

A bridge of Chiron crosses over upper and lower Chakras in Unity.

See a Galactic Federation of spiritual allies!

Are they integrating into your new Spiritual Light Team?

Sound the cadence of their positive self talk mantras that

trump all antagonistic ideological conspiracy theories,

fake news or any negative energies that otherwise suck you in

underwater and turn you into a bloated fish.

Hit the pause button and remember to breathe!

Q-Tip is a spiritual rapper that knows when to WAIT.

Picture: Quit Taking It Personally makes friends with Why Am I Talking?

Movement through the 3D ceiling age of receivers;

dissolves the noose within a New World transition of Fourth dimensional co-creators!

Take care of yourselves everyone,

Ari

A Snake Slithers In July And A Full Buck Moon Rises On July 23, 2021

May the sign of a male deer’s antlers point you into a doe’s yin-ward, gentle allurement into new adventures. Pay purposeful attention to the seasonal synchronicities that July opens up in your consciousness . . .

August is just around the corner. Even in its notorious ‘dog days’, if you look carefully, you’ll see early evidence of the subtleties of Autumn arriving. Perhaps an early fallen leaf, or another hint of Fall in the air.

Soon it will be back to school and back to business. Light and dark will be equal again on Wednesday, September 22nd.

Artwork by Barbara Merlotti

A Full Buck Moon wakens the return of the serpent to respond to the poisonous venom with medicinal healing energy of Snake. Out of the ashes, a Phoenix Rises. Growing pains are only an inevitable and natural part of life. But the stories you project onto your pain only adds more scar tissue to your wounds. Snake can help show you how to shed your old self and change the snake holes of your soul’s path.

What might look like a poisonous snake, could become the new skin of a healing tonic in your Life. Picture a Snake to see through the smokescreen of opinions that others might have about you, and slither into the truth of your own, unique identity. Are you sick from eating something bad for you? How are you feeling after getting a good night’s sleep, eating mostly fruits, plants, whole foods, spending time unplugged, and playing outside?

This month, we get in touch with our reptilian kin . . .

We are inspired to shed our old skins!

A Full Buck Moon arrives with the growth of new deer antlers

sprouting out of the foreheads of male deer.

As such, we transform the toxicity of venomous snake-bites

into an alchemy of soulful healing.

Might as well breathe in Divine air in the form of crystalline love-light!

Stoking the fire burning within . . .

A passing Summer Solstice,

Gently nudges us closer to feminine yin.

Meditation on Snake awakens medicinal transformation . . .

The time is now for heartfelt connections.

But don’t forget to mind your head!

Disasters leave a crematorium of ashes smoldering underground;

igniting new trees to leave underground darkness and branch out into the light.

Pain and suffering are hellish tragedies of Life . . .

Sometimes it’s hard not to feel derailed when riding along subways of unwanted emotions.

A sacred marriage between energetic masculine and feminine kin;

Awakens magical rebirths by shedding dead skin.

Commentary:

We live in a world full of toxicity. We are constantly being bombarded by lots of energies that leave us feeling depleted. Whether its heavy metals in our bodies, pollution, electromagnetic frequencies, radiation, a shrinking ozone layer, drugs, etc. – there are so many ways to bring us down or perk us up. But in spite of being bitten by these garden variety of venoms, there is so much help waiting to slither in from the spirit realm. All we have to do is ask. Just imagine the possibilities if every one of us started to do this from a clean place in our hearts – without any expectation of getting something in return. It will come about and reflect in our outer world when enough of us shed our old skins and open up to becoming something new. In this way, we will leave behind a clean energetic footprint for others to follow by being a role model. It’s like flagging a path for others to follow toward the trail head, to use a hiking metaphor. The trick is to not get stuck in our primitive lizard brain, or reptilian brain. It is easy to become trapped in survival mode – robotic and lost in the everyday busyness of life. But the same systems that oppress can liberate. It is encouraging to know that alternative energy really does start with you. We can all incorporate a meditative way of living by simply becoming mindful of our breathing, picturing calming and peaceful thoughts, expecting synchronicity and focusing on the positive. Enacting a walking meditation, if you will, really does change our experience with reality and energizes our bodies. This process of transformation is contagious and literally becomes your new normal.

An Inner Independence Day Revisited

Photo by Lachlan Ross on Pexels.com

I got a little lost in the surf for awhile . . .

Sometimes, it’s hard not to get caught in the undertow!

But the ocean,

She found me washed up on the shoreline.

Inner Peace was always in the depth of Her heart.

I can feel my heartbeat

(And)

I can hear yours too.

Because I Am getting better at listening

(And)

Tuning in to the whispering ebb and flow of the tides.

I can take refuge in the shorelines.

Fore they are mystical places.

Somewhere between land and sea . . .

Beneath the Golden Age glistening Sun God,

I see my inner New Age and Paradigm.

A silhouette reflecting back at my soul with an empathic gaze . . .

As I watch the sunset,

I can see Him setting on my sinking Patriarch.

He is in the luminous Mirror of the Mind.

A New Man born on the horizon . . .

Breathing fire into a renewed Independence Day.

A rapturous thunder of wonder!

Mixed with awakened vulnerability from Their slumber . . .

A New Human shines on thine novel Eyes.

Eclipsed by Butterfly & A Strawberry Full Moon

Another Sacred Geometrical Arcturian Positive Self Talk Mantra asserts that, “the energy of Transition radiates trust and prepares you for new times. Every challenge dissolves old ideas and simultaneously creates new possibilities.”

A Strawberry Full Moon yields a fruitful harvest for this sweet crop. Light peaks on the Summer Solstice. Summertime begins and our spirits want to flock together like birds of a feather. Float with Butterfly to lighten up your soul to the energy of joy while following your bliss. External outer-directed energies are in full swing now.

When you are faced with the challenge of changing the latitudes of your attitudes . . . Remember to float with the joy of Butterfly lighten-up the color of your soul. Where are you at right now in your growth? Are you a caterpillar inching along? Or are you a grub in hibernation — just waiting for something new to break out of yourself? Or are you ready to spread your new wings and fly into new places?

Artwork by Barbara Merlotti

A Strawberry Full Moon rises on Thursday, June 24, 2021, just after the Summer Solstice on Father’s Day on June 20th. Many of you already know that yang symbolizes masculine energy or sunlight. In the Northern hemisphere, these male energies reach their peak. And then after that, the light will slowly wane till yang and yin are in energetic equal alignment again on the Autumn equinox on September 22nd. In the Southern hemisphere, it is the opposite. On equinoxes, masculine and feminine energies flow together in egalitarian balance.

When the light rises, as amplified by the eclipses and Full Moons, spirited energies are more intense. There is nothing to get dramatic, abusive or hung up about. Old patterns and issues rise to the surface for us to revisit and examine so that we can release old toxins and shed old skins that hold us back so that we can transform, and manifest new ways of being. I am watching this play out in my own life, as I know many of you are seeing it play out in yours, the planet, and beyond.

Be kind to your mind by remembering that there is always some dark in the light, as well as some light in the dark. There is no perfect sign, color or utopian symbol. Energy is energy . . . It’s what we do with it that counts. As such, we might as well do whatever we can to stay in alignment with the forces of Nature and the universal pillars of Love and Truth. Remember that happiness as a way of life is not without the bitter taste of pain. The key dynamic is our approach to “digesting bitter.”

How many of you have been listening in on the popular chattering monkey minds of the adult world regarding the sense of entitlement of youth culture today? For example, even some younger millennial teachers I know talk about how kids today are different, while sometimes citing justifications for their positional judgements. Of course, there is truth in these observations because the one constant is change, and that we are kneeling at the bosom of a flowering New Earth. At the same time, the old world is wilting away and dying. But if we give deeper and higher contemplation toward the quote below by an old school hall of fame teacher, it would seem like he was speaking to the everyday gripes about today’s youth right Tao, and yet from back Zen:

“The children now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise. Children are now tyrants, not the servants of their households. They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their legs, and tyrannize their teachers.”

― Socrates

Meditate on the ancient Chinese Taoist yin and yang symbol below:

Furthermore, when I think of the dying old world, with its savoir complex and forceful dog eat dog ways, I think about the Taoist meaning of “investing in loss”, by the late Chinese Tai Chi master, “Professor” Cheng Man-Ching, who brought Tai Chi to America from his native land, against the strict rules of his racial ancestral group. Can you imagine the culture shock he experienced when his new American students came to learn from him, who were predominantly white, hippie types with long hair and counterculture leanings? But the East and West came together in the spirit of co-regulation to learn about investing in loss as a way to neutralize a superior force through the practice of non-contention:

Now when I say, “Learn to invest in loss,” who is willing to do this? To invest in loss is to permit others to use force to attack while you don’t use even the slightest force to defend yourself. On the contrary, you lead an opponent’s force away so that it is useless. The hero’s journey starts with self-reinforcement, passes through acceptance and internal quietude, to arrive at listening, learning and perhaps, ultimately, transcendence. This is the common path of spirituality and martial arts. To win, one must first be sincerely willing to lose more than just their footing.

Sometimes, the Professor reportedly expounded on how women generally were more naturally gifted at the internal martial arts, push hands included. Because, as women, they tended to be more in touch with yin energy, which is the feminine. The internal martial arts emphasizes a gentle and soft approach to cultivating the power of Qi (energy) gradually, like water slowly gaining momentum. The dying patriarchy represents the sun setting on the old world, which is clearing space for the moon rising in the New Earth, where we are witnessing the return of the Sacred Feminine. The New Aquarian Age is about we consciousness, where the individual finds their way too, but not without a supporting balance between authentic personal growth and group identity.

During our everyday routine, we can step into the variety of roles that we play in life’s game with awareness and compassion, and then let go when our part is done. Learning how to be human is developing a relationship with our “non-self.” In this space, we are allowing ourselves to relax into a present moment awareness that reaches beyond the roles we play and identify with. In this relaxed state, may we notice a window opening up to freedom, joy and equanimity. If we can let go of a sense of expectation, clinging and grasping, perhaps we can see the river of emotions for what they are, and become more likely to go with the flow of life during its unfolding process. 

Meditate on the images and accompanying healing mantras below via Gene Ang

InterGalactic Red Frequency-used to activate, warm, and strengthen.

InterGalactic Orange Frequency-used to cleanse, clear, and release.

InterGalactic Yellow Frequency-used to mend and heal broken bones, ligaments, and tendons.  Also useful for mental processing.

InterGalactic Green Frequency-overall universal cleansing frequency.

InterGalactic Blue Frequency-cooling and soothing to inflammatory processes.

InterGalactic Indigo Frequency-unique spiritual vibration frequency

InterGalactic Violet Frequency-high vibration frequency used to raise the vibration of any healing process.

Notice how the colors in the above images correspond to the Chakras, as well as the colors of the rainbow, coupled with their accompanying meditations that we have discussed in earlier blog entries.

Specifically, from a Civil Rights calendar perspective, June is LGBTQ + Pride month. Another way to play with our sexual identity and sensual expression is to be mindful of the above rainbow of intergalactic colors and how they manifest in everyday wellness as a way of life. As you can see, each color represents a different vibrational frequency in spiritual healing. Entertaining a walking meditation of the applicability of these colors is another strategy for spiritual awakening in your daily life. This is an inside out approach to act out your sensuality in the form of a walking mindful meditation without necessarily doing anything outwardly different. We make a big deal about taking action in the West. Of course this is a good time of year for manifestation, and sometimes taking external action steps are a necessary part of personal growth and systemic change. But what we are focusing on here is an inside out approach by getting to know yourself on a deeper level as a formless, energetic being that wants to express itself through your outer form.

Finally, think about how gender fluidity connects to the above yin and yang symbol. Given that humans are part of Nature, we are reflections of that mirror. You can’t have Mother Earth without Father Sky. From this perspective, every man has a woman inside of him, just as every woman has a man inside of her. Moreover, every white person has a BIPOC inside of themselves, just as every LGBTQ has a straight person living within them. You might not believe in reincarnation, but that doesn’t mean that you don’t have a past life living within you that matters nonetheless. We are all connected and yet we are all unique. Diversity within Unity. Yes we should honor our differences and respect how we identify with them. Labels are an acknowledgment for what was once hidden within a jar. But the more open and transparent we become about our differences, the more we can let them go and just be with each other on a truly level playing field. It may sound out of this world, but given that we all have stardust in our DNA, we all have alien technology living within our humanity, if you’ll pardon the cosmological pun.

Take care of yourselves everyone,

Ari

Specifically, listen to how the ‘tuning up the organs’ meditation by Qigong Master Lee Holden below, harmonizes with the color frequencies above:

Wood Element Meditation The Slow it Down Sunday Collection

The wood element is about resiliency; a combination of strength and flexibility. Think about a tree. It grows in both directions, staying connected to its sources, both above and below. The roots need strength to support the tree from below. The deeper the roots, the higher the tree can grow towards the light. When we're grounded, we can be flexible with life's ever-changing circumstances, like a tree in the wind, able to go with the flow of whatever life has to offer.
