Cardinal appears in our world today
As Father Sun just revealed a peak light experience
on a waning Summer Solstice

A Full Buck Moon runs through the sky trails ahead

Do you need a strong moral compass or a
yoke tattooed around your neck to be true to yourself?

Yang heats up his fires during the summer months
It is a time for outer growth and an action-oriented lifestyle

And yet, we are heading downhill now until light and dark
are equal again on Fall Equinox in September . . .

Can you sense seismic shifts of
Climate Change across the fruited plain?

As the world turns, may we remember the softness of
yin’s hands calm the nerves of anxiety ridden war mongering

May meditation on Cardinal’s whistles blow in the winds of change
that resonate with crystalline clarity in Mother Earth’s heart beat

See you up the trails,

Can you hear the whistle of Cardinal’s spirit blowing in the wind?
Are you feeling eclipsed by their virtuous and powerful archetypal footprint?

Mercury in Retrograde resurrects perpetually dead, albeit real call backs . . .
Our minds move away from rational, logical and linear recordings

Try not to get identified with any fixed ideas or repetitively negative mental tapes
Just examine them with an open, passive attitude and gently let them pass

A Full Moon coming soon yields a hearty seasonal Harvest . . .
What tremors will be seen, heard and felt across the fruited plains?

Feeling safe, comfortable and regulated will be challenged
But there is an opportunity for letting go and relaxing into seismic changes

Feminine yin power intensifies during the approach of the
Autumn Equinox this September

Back to school, back to business and getting organized is in the air!
But don’t let that drive you nuts . . .

A revival of old religious traditions co-mingles paradoxically with
listening to the messages of your True self and Inner Voice that
remind vitality is always here for you to allow in any given moment!

Climate Change, dark sorcery and violence plague our streets . . .
Breathing in chaotic storm fronts are painful to watch and hard on the lungs . . .

But where are you on the map of seeing a
SilverĀ Lining Playbook and making only positive interpretations?

The black truth is that it can be hard to find Nirvana
within the chaotically deafening traffic jam of life!

Might as well strum the heartstrings of Oneness and
tune in to the key of Inner Peace!

The Winter Solstice arrives this week in the Northern Hemisphere
A Full Cold Moon on Christmas signifies a
birth of the coldest, darkest and longest nights of the year . . .

After that we will begin to coax back the light of masculine-yang

Paradoxically, our friends in the Southern Hemisphere experience peak light –
Where masculine-yang reaches its zenith on the Summer solstice . . .
And then a downhill run toward rising dark nights of feminine-yin

Like it or not, pain and suffering are part of life
But most of us want to be happy

So here we sit in a chair with paradoxical tension of opposites

Pain is inevitable, but suffering is a choice
Pain is a wound that hurts
Let yourself feel sad in your heart for this . . .

Our ancestors that have left this planet
frequently revisit us during a death cycle in Nature

Do you remember the Buddha’s God realized teachings on compassion in the park?

Become the courage to move deeper into your pain through a lens of compassion
Gently allow yourself to maintain a graceful and compassionate gaze of Deer

Happiness as a way of life is a real possibility
Sing in the whispering winds to the key of inner peace

Christmas is coming to signal the birth of Christ Consciousness
Might as well come down into your soul and Love one another

Because the gift of your presence here is worth receiving!

Remember that soap opera around your pain is of your own creation . . .
Just own it and move forward!

Onward up the trails,

Owl awakens wisdom from our dreams and meditations . . .
Symbolically connecting us to the feminine energies of the moon

See through the realm of deception . . .
With the clairvoyant vision of a wise old eagle of the night

These cat-like winged creatures primarily feed off Mouse . . .
Owls are good reminders that “we all have our blind spots”

Let Owl illuminate your shadow side and unveil the shady aspects of others

Moving with Owl further into darker nights of the soul . . .
Resurrects the Idea of Reincarnation

Here we are where everything old is new again
Are you being revisited by the ghosts of yesteryear?

Falling autumnal leaves are changing colors –
Reminding us that death is part of life

We bear witness to the curtains being pulled back –
Revealing a thinner veil between material and spirit realms

Looking back into the rear-view mirror upon ancient Greece
Athena is pictured as the goddess of wisdom

Wise up to the perception that modern Greece
Challenges the way of the dominant world economy . . .

A sneak preview to Goliath falling down –
We are glimpsing a portal into a New Age and Paradigm

Are you using or developing your intuitive and psychic powers?

Owl swoops in to take a deeper look at details, secrets or hidden knowledge

God is the Alpha and Omega . . .
An interplay between seen and unseen forces flowing together

Be mindful of the gravitational pull that
dark edges attract to feed off the energy of another

Yellow eyes reveal that even in dark, there is light

Try to recognize that being seen and heard isn’t a red alert . . .
But it does require trust and an open heart

Especially when reading prophecy, signals and omens

Becoming flexibility relaxes tension during these changing seasons

It might be the end of the world as we know it
But we are still here to light up our world with collective souls

See you further on up the trails,

Ari

devil in me
devil in you (who stole the soul?)
letting mine go
how about you?

God is Love
Love is God
we are Love
we are God

united we stand
illusionary divisions befall
dogma is gone
inclusion for all

Frogs help us remember how to evoke changing weather patterns by singing harmonically with Mother Nature. Perhaps these vocalizations are more raw and less polished than the popular voice. And yet, their melody is powerful and music to the clairaudient ear that resonates deeply within our souls. In the beginning, there was sound. In that vibration, our spirited songs of freedom were born. This reverberation asserts that we are all diverse expressions of Great Spirit. It is true that we are a rainbow of different orientations, but we are all cut from the same cloth. There is no us and them. We are one human family. If corporations are people too, then we wake up to the awareness that we all benefit from a spring cleaning in our souls. Developing tolerance for our diversity is a “step-up” for many folks. A step further is to integrate acceptance of what is into our Being. Frog helps us purify and detoxify blockages in our souls, so that we are equipped to move more gracefully with the changing tides during our experience with Climate Change. As more of us become hip to this vibe, we witness a proliferation of this Oneness reflecting in our material realm. In this process, we help clear the way for spirit to weave its way into our world. Ingesting Frog medicine is good food for the soul and amplifies our power by becoming clearer channels, serving as conduits for radiating cleaner energy. This internal purification and detoxification facilitates the internal experience of inner peace, which decreases pollution so within as without.

While we are one human family, we see that we have been raised with much dysfunction and toxicity. We have been programmed by our societies and parents to follow certain rules and rituals, often unconsciously and without review. In Maine, there’s an old saying, “that’s just the way we’ve always done it.” But part of our healing, especially in Spring, is “out with the old, in with the new.” We can learn from Frog and shamanic network of animal friends how to get back into alignment with Nature. Do you remember the scene in Rocky 3 when Apollo tells Rocky that he has lost the “eye of the Tiger”, but that he is going to help him get it back? Given where we are at in human history, the timing of the spiritual wisdom, “if not now, when” is critically important. When the student is ready, the teacher will appear. The corollary is also true. In much the same way as the Buddha, even children raised in ideal situations have an underlying yearning to wake up to the emotional sensitivity that there is more to life that creature comforts and pampered privilege. Through our dirty waters of suffering, Frog breathes in a renewed sense of harmony into our lives and rekindles the notion that there is great peace and joy in taking time for yourself. With its connection to the water element and the lunar cycle, we look back to the waning Wesak Full Moon and are inspired by clearing out our muddy waters and drinking in crystal clear fresh water. Whether you are an atheist, agnostic or a devout believer, Frog is here to remind us to do whatever we can to get closer to Great Spirit. Some ways we can bring in this energy into our lives are going for a walk in the woods, taking in a deep and cleansing deep breath, asserting “stop”, unplugging from technology, staying away from the news for a while, taking a long, relaxing bath, going for a swim or just getting near the water for a spell. We all need to give ourselves a break from information and choice overload. In our modern world, tapping into Frog’s energy might even make you a bit of a rebel. How do you like to weave Frog’s cleansing energy into your life?

Frog is the rainmaker and is a true weather person that is capable of weather control. Its medicine encourages us to wash away the dirt in our lives. As such, meditation on Frog reflects metamorphosis and creativity into our waking lives. Given their amphibian nature, consuming Frog’s spirited energy links us to water and land and helps us stay grounded and emotionally sensitive with respect to the boundaries of self and relationships. Meditation on Frog can assist us in vocalizing our truths powerfully and respectfully. Given that Spring and Summer are its power times, we need to use its energy effectively so that we do not blow things out of proportion. Frog is good spirited soul food to consume while digesting Climate Change.
