The energy of Squirrel and Chipmunk reflect heightened activity levels right now
Last week’s waning Corn Moon reminds us that we sow what we reap . . .

The seasonal harvest is in . . .
Now is the time to think about preparing for winter supplies

Short term gains should not forget long-term returns!

Nature reflects balance on an arriving Autumnal Equinox . . .

Light and Dark energies will be equal, if only briefly then . . .

For our friends in the Southern hemisphere, it will be their Vernal Equinox
They will be climbing toward peak light on their Summer Solstice in December

Here in our neck of the woods, the Sacred Feminine will gain momentum on toward
December’s Winter Solstice, where we will coax back the light from dark nights

It’s natural to come down into our souls, quiet down, sleep, rest, meditate
and become further in touch with our darker emotions

Might as well lean into, and even embrace Nature’s rhythms if you can dig it

We have descended downward the mountain from
peak light on Summer Solstice . . .

Today, our journeys trek further into the dark with fading trail lights

Try to keep an open mind and heart on your travels . . .
Picture walking in the center of the circle with balanced footwork

Moving closer to love will help you stay further away from fear
Besides, it takes more energy to hate than to love

From this perspective, we allow the truth to set us free!

See you along the trails,

A New Moon is coming
Signaling new beginnings like new moons do

Squirrels reflect lots of yang-oriented active activity
Their energies are intensified by peaking sunlight that is
now making a slow downhill descent

Our friends in the Southern Hemisphere are celebrating a resurrection of light
after their darkest day of the year on their Winter Solstice

We are reminded to use what we need and prepare for in times where fewer
resources are available as we travel further into
natural seasons of darker scarcity

Won’t be too long before light and dark energies
are equal again on Autumn Equinox in September

But for now we are reminded to learn to balance work and play
Summer is a good opportunity to become more festive and socially engaged

What about the UK pulling out of the European Union?

Doesn’t this latest episode synchronize with the reflection that big waves of change
are crashing in as we sail closer toward the new shores an Aquarian Age?

Old hoarding ways of viewing the Earth as belonging to us
to subjugate and plunder are fading, yet not without resistance

Whilst this delayed mindset keeps humanity enslaved by making repetitive
and unconscious consumer transactions is an unsustainable life support system

Tragedies like the latest Orlando massacre and Donald Trump’s popularity
are reminding us that it takes more energy to hate than to love

What will a more equitable economic structure supporting The Many look like?

We can say with confidence that promoting the general welfare for the Goose
and the Gander facilitates an awakening of our souls to the

Light of Unity Consciousness

See you further on up the trails,

A Full Sturgeon “SuperMoon” swims into Saturday’s skyline . . .
Leaving behind a red haze all through Universal brain

It’s back to school time for many of our children
Time to get organized and back into a more structured routine

Like the Moon, Nature waxes and wanes
On Autumn Equinox in September

Balance is reflected outward in Yin and Yang’s equal energetic alignment

Masculine and Feminine energies dance together
Showcases a theatrical trailer of equality between the sexes

We bear witness to harmony being a natural and organic process

There’s no need to stockpile weapons of mass destruction
or hoard resources to escalate inequities and underlying resentments

That yield divisive capital that banks on cashing in on
an investment in “us and them” intellectual property

While saying fairly well to Summer . . .
The veil of Fall descends on a colorful backdrop

We are reminded that it might not be dark yet –
But the length of the days are fading more quickly

Crisp Autumn air is eclipsed by three consecutive “Supermoons”
In August, September and October . . .

Changing tides are shifting within
Just as they are riding out the storm fronts in the Great Outdoors

Squirrels like us are already bursting with more nervous energy than usual
Busily foraging in preparation for a cold Winter’s storage

Squirrel serves as inspiration to release clutter
to bring in cleansing new streams of energy

Commanding the field by signaling the cadence
“Out with the old, in with the new”

See you further on up the trails,

Fall is upon us

Giving permission to grieve Yang’s dirge
Football and soccer games help keep us on the ball
Squirrels driven nuts by forgotten acorns
Mental health returns with a keen sense of smell

Leaving behind egalitarian Autumnal dance-steps
Perfect harmony with masculine and feminine synergy
Nature reflects our inner shifts n’ energetic rifts

Turning yin-ward
Waning Light
Soon outta sight
Tunneling toward our darkest hour
But not before many spirited blessings

I remember playing basketball and doing my job with a student this week, when he called out to me, “Ari look, a squirrel”.  Here in the Northern hemisphere, the seasonal transition into Fall is rapidly approaching us and we are venturing back to school, work and getting organized, while saying good-bye to summer.  Meditation on squirrel reminds us that our business can be our pleasure, if only we allow for it.  In a sense, this week’s blog was falling out in the doing, while leaving its passing behind.  And the doing becomes less robotic when we are truly present with what is and our busy doings become awakened and more about being.  Summer is waning and on this Equinox, light and dark will be in balance, if only briefly.  At this junction on Nature’s cycle, the Autumn Equinox is somewhat akin to the Spring Equinox, when masculine and feminine energies are also equal.  Right now, we are looking forward to the masculine-light waning and the dark night of feminine energies rising until their peak on the Winter Solstice on December 21, 2012, the first day of Winter.  Isn’t it synchronistic that squirrel medicine carries a 12 week cycle and the end of the Mayan Calendar is approximately that distance into the future?  Yes, we are living in exciting times on our planet today, but not without the labor pains associated with giving birth to a New Earth.  Squirrels are especially powerful medicine at this moment and when watching them being squirrely, we are reminded of their spirited teaches on being prepared, but hopefully without going too nuts in the process.  Does anyone else out there get a chuckle from watching our squirrel brothers and sisters bursting with nervous energy, scurrying around, while stashing their acorns and sometimes forgetting where they buried their treasures? 

I remember when “911” happened like it was yesterday.  In fact, I knew something like this event was coming–in the sense that I could feel it.  At the time, I was working at a group home for children in State custody that had been severely abused and neglected by their birth families and they were already at school.  A couple of my co-workers came in and asked if I knew what had happened and directed me to the TV in the living room.  Although I was only in my mid-twenties at the time, I had not lived a sheltered life and I understood what was going on in our world geopolitically.  I realized that many folks on the planet, including a growing number of  folks here in America, lived without a sense of security and experienced terrorism in their day-to-day lives.  Sadly, but understandably, terrorism seeks to disrupt the status quo and uses violence as a means to justify the end.  This crazy idea is similar to the fundamentalist belief in the maximum economic profit business model that wealthy nations use to exploit poor nations on our planet today.  But violence, although illegitimate and foolish, predictably begets more violence.  We reap what we sow.  Stockpiling weapons of mass destruction, which the United States continues to hoard more than any other nation, is asking for more of the same.  However, if we want to eliminate this clinically insane nightmare, then we need to start balancing cooperation with competition and clean up the resources that we share by co-creating win-win solutions, rather than adopting a quick fix, band-aid approach.  Isn’t it obvious that the old ways do not work any more?  As humans, we have historically been at our best when we are at our worst.  But the times, they are a changin’ and we need to get out on the forefront and proactively get in alignment with Nature to facilitate our transition into a New Age and Paradigm.  Can’t you hear the arrival of John Lennon’s energy saying, give peace a chance . . . that’s all we’re asking, is give it a chance . . . it’s never been done.

In welcoming squirrel’s spirited streams of energy, we remember how to balance letting go of our stockpiles that no longer serve us and tap into our reservoirs for a future rainy day.  Our spirited Nervous Woodland Creature friends are offering us powerful energies to release dysfunctional relationship patterns, fixed thought processes, programmed beliefs and objects that once brought security, but are no longer serving us–without going too nuts in the process!  This is somewhat akin to a toddler giving up his pacifier and learning to soothe himself, rather than relying on the object of his affection.  In our modern world of 10, 000 things, it might mean giving up some old clothes and giving them away to someone who really needs them more.  Systemically, perhaps this looks like giving up our addiction to foreign oil and replacing it with free energy for the entire planet by tapping into the Earth’s natural energy centers, as true wizard Nikola Tesla once envisioned.  Maybe that is too far-fetched for some, but burning less fossil fuels and finding more organic ways to cultivate energy that is cleaner for all of us is possible.  Bringing in the energy of squirrel is merely one source that is pollution free, particularly if worked in the positive.  For those at the top of the food chain, it might mean giving up tax breaks and sharing a bit more with the overwhelming majority–picturing buying us time and saving us money.  It might mean looking another sentient being in the eyes, perceiving the mirror and realizing that we are all cut from the same cloth.  In tapping into squirrel consciousness, we co-create a safe place for an untroubled heart and mind, where wisdom and caring are gathered and stored and anxious fears about the future magically disappear. 

Stay True,

Ari
