Out of the soulful black matter of creation
the magical powers of Raven are born . . .

Feminine powers of darkness are gaining momentum now
Pretty soon, we will turn our clocks back yinward

Light and dark energies will dance in alignment on
Autumn Equinox later on in September . . .

Do you feel the subtle changes in the air?
Temperatures are beginning to cool down

The increased nervous industry of squirrels and chipmunks right about now
Reminds us that it is time to get back to school, and back to business

You can mix business with pleasure
Raven sees the mystery with a keen spiritual eye

Spirit is everywhere . . .
Whistling in the wind, and sitting on mountaintops

All you need to do is ask for help
Be clear in your mind and your heart

And then allow yourself to receive . . .

Magic arrives when you remember to breathe, and empty your mind
The birth of relaxation can return to you in the death of another stressful moment

There is no utopia, as Rome wasn’t built in a day . . .

But the time is now to dig deep, and
unearth your own inner peace within . . .

You can do this by adjusting yourself on the inside
by taking the fight out of it, and letting go of outcome

There is magic in letting go of the ends justifying the means
stuck energies of fixed mind kind of thinking . . .

Try to remember this during Mercury in retrograde
during the spacing, and zoning out of rational/logical mental faculties

Instead of trying to figure it all out, or letting these breakdowns drive you nuts –
Just breathe, and go with flow . . .

Instead of challenging others by getting into power struggles . . .
Make meaningful connections!

This is how we co-create Heaven on Earth

Till the next trail head,

Sea Gull guides us into new horizons with a New Moon this week . . .

Subtleties of communication teach us to read between the lines
Between land and sea, we hear the mystical vibrations of shorelines

Seagulls remind us that reality has both surface and depth

In their natural habitat, Herrings personify these transitional tides –
Symbolic of land and air within multidimensional realities

The reason the conflict of duality exists –
Is that there is tension of opposites . . .

When seen through our lower chakras –
We see a dirty view of doom and gloom

And there is a reality to that perception

But when perceived through the eyes of the upper chakras –
We see a Oneness and cosmic connection to All That Is

May we collectively see one another, our planet
and beyond from that vantage point . . .

Standing in the space of inner peace we can experience
Expanded consciousness in the Universe throughout

Just say fairly well to a dying old world
Grease your gears by fluidly shifting into the birth of a New Earth

“Let go and let God” . . .

Now is the time to embrace the living moment

Open your hearts and minds to the budding magic, mystery and synchronicity
They want to express themselves to you in the form of unfolding Divinity

Body language is the psychology of communication

May Herring Medicine inspire consuming an ecologically healthy diet
Because we are what we eat

Leaning into our feelings is an intimate soulful dance-step
Yielding to a most sweet and satisfying surrender of vulnerability

See you up the trails,

Crows sit all along the watchtower in large flocks of communal roosts
A symbolically predictive omen for changing weather patterns

Further movement into a New Earth previews trailers of clearer forecasts
Revealing that we are all One

Connecting the loose threads of our multidimensional heartstrings
Striking a chord that we are all in this together

Meditation on the Law of Impermanence
Reminds us that everything is transitory and ephemeral

Is it a time for you to begin a new course of study?

Fireside storytelling awakens the flames of shared human experiences
Breathing in Samhain marks mid-point between Autumn air and Winter Solstice
A good time to honor our ancestors and exhale Karmic wounds of yesterday

Is a message on its way for you to receive?

Reflecting Nature’s intentional expression for letting-go
And feeling thankful for our vulnerability

Should you be more alert and wary?

Spiritual laws transcend physical laws
By bending the ways of our material world

Watching our shadow-side teachings remind us to attend to the nuts and bolts
Cultivating structure, consistency and predictability in our daily walk facilitates
Coming down into our souls from our high perches of observation

Try not to sweat the small stuff of nervous woodland creature energies

Creation is born out of the feminine womb of life
Master magicians see illusionary veils cloaking other realms
Mystical vibrations of co-creativity are woven into everyday life

Are you noticing everyday opportunities to make magic in your daily routine?

When sitting still in the driver’s seat
We keep our eyes on the horizon and in rearview mirror
Watching the wheels balancing in the eternal now

Picture a tree soaking in sun
Rooted deeply into our Earth’s dark soil
Together we stand in alignment with the elements

Shapeshifting ourselves into transformative inner peace
Shining intrinsic Divine Light onto our darker edges

Leave it to Full Beaver Moon this week to cue us to “set traps”
Before our internal swamps become frozen
Turning our clocks back yinward
In preparation for the cold by blanketing our souls with “warm winter furs”

Remembering when our soul power breathes effectively through our human voice
We are honoring every moment as a past teacher,
the living present as our creation
and the future as our inspiration

Cat’s medicinal power sees effectively in the dark night
Watching the veils thin before our eyes
Opening perceptual doors revealing our own Divine sunlight

A stinger of a Scorpio New Moon has passed us by
With seasonal reminders that everything old is new again

Now we pounce toward Halloween, All Saints Day and All Souls Day

Are you using your cat-like powers in a positive light?

Releasing old ghost stories gives birth to spirited new character development
Are your underlying emotional cards fanned out on the table?
Or are you hiding beneath tales from the crypt?
Dark emotions carry venom only when bottled up and then acted out in toxic ways

Cat’s eye can give you a glimpse into facing passed down fears from our ancestors
This is a good time of year to symbolically give back those inherited burdens
Through telepathic, prayer, meditation or visualization communication rituals

A quiet mind is an aware mind when calm and relaxed
Do whatever you can to conjure up inner peace

Feminine powers brew magical mystery tours
in mystically soulful cauldrons

Are life’s obstacles merely tricked treats cloaked in a brilliant disguise?

Being a leader affords wizardly empathic glimpses
into divergent viewpoints of our charges

Cat awakens paradoxical energies
Purring telepathic messages
Meowing that even a loner can become a social creature

Or are you like Dog and need to become more independent?
Do you need to become more discriminate in your choice of companions?

Are you weighed down by voices of guilt and resentments?
Replace them with a forgiving and compassionate heart

Setting an intention of mindful awareness in our daily doings
disassemble any robotic short circuits in our politics of living

Following downstream rivers of bliss
mirrors an outer fun house that won’t drive you mad

In spite of our circumstances or what we deem should or should not have happened
We remember to run the play and follow our shots
When Life deals us a full court press

Stoking the fire burning within . . .

Sacred marriage of internal masculine and feminine kin –
Transmutation of death-rebirth by shedding old skin.

Is your chattering mind merely a reflection of corporate propagated spin?
Fair and balanced news comes from a unified mind-body-spirit din.
Prepackaged commercials should be tossed in the bin.

Standing with energetic footprints growing strong roots –
Allows for a grounded Being anchored in Mother Earth’s soot.

A poisonous snake-bite might appear like an Indian burn . . .
But there is healing tonic entwined within the urn.
Toxic venom is released from a snake bite.
Ingesting a Divine cleansing with abundant watery crystalline love-light.

Are you awakening into New Aquarian Age Unity?
Or are you stuck in old world Groundhog Day repetitive re-run insanity?

The choice is ours to make . . .

Like a vampire bite, the Empire’s cannibalistic toxicity carries venom.
But in our awakening, we are blazing new trails through healing and transformation.

Pain and suffering abound.
Terribly tragic it is.

Nature cries a dirge of acid rain.
Within the ashes, a new Tree of Life is born.

May our souls lighten up and deliver us into our “better angels”.

Meditation on Snake is good medicine for transmutation.

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.

Protection, faith and loyalty . . .
Are messages shared with us from our Canine family.

Descendants of wolves and coyote are they.
Are you being faithful? What about folks around you?

Selfless and playful generosity from a four-legged community.
Are you playing enough in your journey?

With Dog as our guide we retrieve
Spirited messages from the Dreamtime . . .

The only constancy is change.
Let go and let God in by trusting in unfolding fluidity.
What is passes us fleetingly.
Within this uncertainty is medicinal safety and security.

Dog is a protective co-pilot –
While navigating our inner trails.
Do you need to be more protective of your territory?

A true and loyal friend –
Dog reflects an authentic relationship with our Higher Selves.
Are you being faithful to yourself?

Nobility in the service to others –
In its true nature, Dog embodies a
tolerant spirit genuinely asking to be of service.

In the selfishness of going out to fetch . . .
There is selflessness in returning the catch.
We walk with balanced footsteps in giving and receiving.

Thank you Dog for your deep and compassionate understanding
of human shortcomings.
Are you showing unconditional love or allowing yourself to receive it?

Weaving in understanding into our developing story –
Awakens a deeper feeling of empathy for humanity.

See you further on down the trails,

Ari
