Posts Tagged ‘Otter Medicine’

Otter can facilitate a sweet sense of surrender,
and relax control issues between tension of energetic opposites . . .

A Full Worm Moon arrives on Thursday
Daylight Savings Time is coming soon down the pike

Spring Equinox is also arriving in the coming Pisces tides of March

Masculine and Feminine energies will dance together in equanimity . . .
Shouldn’t that be a good role model enacted by humanity?

Freeing our minds from our likes and dislikes helps heal our
natural human tendency to move away from what we
don’t want versus moving toward what we want more of

Just empathize for a moment that the gaining popularity of
the GLBTQ modern label is nothing new from the perspective of our
collective consciousness, sentient being history!

It’s just outside the box from a cookie cutter, Americancentric perspective

Consider meeting both opposite sides of the same coin with
an aware/soft mind, let it be, and let it go . . .

Cultivating sound mental health is a process of letting go of our
preferred/non-preferred experiences, yet responding to awareness instead of
reacting to our reality-based judgements

If only we meet our challenges with an aware opportunity of a soft mind,
a puncture-proof spirit of letting go, and be open to whatever
it is we are experiencing with love, and compassionate kindness . . .

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

The universal Law of Impermanence merely reflects Nature’s Way
that the only constant is change

An old meditative mantra of let it be and this too shall pass is good medicine
to remember always, but especially during energetic seasonal transitions

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

Our pleasures, aches, pains and injuries
will die just like we will someday . . .

May we all do the best that we can

Otters reflect relaxation as a balanced approach to work and play
Are you able to whistle while you work?

We suffer because we tend to forget living in harmony with the
changing seasons of life, which often results in fights . . .

But Otter reminds us it’s about how we flow with the fluid sensational waters of life

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

Goliath is a metaphor in our old testament consciousness that is
even more proliferated and pronounced in our world today

Just look at the NRA as part of the big business strangulation
of our sovereignty by the miserly ways of the Powers that Be

Mental illness is about doing the same thing over and over,
and expecting different results

But genuflection to the better devil you know mind-set is comforting,
even if toxic and against your own self-interest . . .

At the end of the day, nobody really benefits from a maximum economic
profit off of sickness, and death,
albeit under the guise of protection and security . . .

Is American ready to become an embodiment of showing a moral responsibility
to provide equal pay/livable wages, universal health care, and
a built-in emphasises on vacation/leisure/free choice time
to create your own self-determined experiences?

Or is that perspective only reserved for those that work hard within the
entitled, privileged inner circles of the minority of the opulent?

Till the next trailhead,

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,

Otters are outgoing, playful and devoted to their families
Organized, constructive and skillful managers are they

You could say their business is pleasure
as they seem to make this attitude work in their favor

Feminine energy is both grounding like the Earth and powerful like Water

On this Valentine’s Day and everyday
Love the woman in you and embrace her nurturing on your soul

Redefine masculinity by tapping into creative mothering energetics
with soft imaginative faculties

Though a Full Snow Moon arrives later this month
The subtleties of Spring are stirring now

Hard to believe alignment of masculine and feminine energies are coming together
on Spring Equinox barely over a month away

Given this frigid cold right Tao in Northern New England
paradoxically, the intensities of Light heat up everyday

Like changing seasons, shifting tides require us to
ride the waves of cleansing and purification

The time is now to heal our polarity . . .

It is natural to fear the unknown of that which is mysterious

Why do you think so many women were accused of being
witches and burned at the stake?

At what cost do we “make America great again?”
Sounds like the justification for genocide is getting louder on the airwaves folks

But on the flip side of the coin . . .
There’s a polar shift drifting toward activist love that’s got people feeling saintly
or at least perhaps moving toward our better angels in humanity . . .

Do you need to have more fun?
Do you need to let your worries roll off you back?

May Otter reawaken your sense of wonder and an opening up to new experiences
So that you can go with the natural flow of life and let your inner child shine on
instead of pushing against the river and fighting the current

See the good in yourself and everyone else without preconceptions or suspicions
Use mental martial arts to create an envy, jealousy and a catty free zone . . .

What we are talking about is cultivating soul sisterhood with each other –
It’s hard to demonize or have enemies in this space

Come from a place of authenticity and trust in your everyday business
Meditate on letting go of attachments to material world things

Remember that clinging to the pleasures of the physical senses
is a recipe for feeling a grave sense of recycled disappointed!

See you up the trails,

Ari
