Snakes are slithering around in shady areas beneath the sunlight these days . . .

As such, their poisonous venom can strengthen spiritual growth

Like the energy of Snake, bullying is a strong term,
and carries a scorching bite in today’s headlines . . .

But it certainly isn’t a new phenomenon

If you get real about it, most humans have been on both
the giving and receiving end of the bullying coin . . .

As unfair and one-sided as bullying is, bystander power is an opportunity
to become an ally, and make a conscious decision
to take a stance to promote equanimity

In these days of fake news, and con artist running the show,
it can feel overwhelming to stick to the facts,
and be impeccable with your word

To wit: “the corporate media are only as liberal
as the conservative businesses that own it”

So “don’t hate the media, become the media.”

Be true to yourself, and practice speaking your truth from
a place of inner peace when standing in your own personal authority!

Just look at the opportunities for growth
in the new skins of a dimensional paradigm shift

The energy of Snake embodies transformation . . .

What old part of yourself wants to die, shed its old skin,
and awaken a new unmasking of yourself . . .

“Anger is the bodyguard of fear”

Chew on that for a moment . . .

Is your chattering monkey mind,
and subsequent emotional reactions disguised manifestations
of headaches that stem from unexpressed anger?

If you slither down the snake holes, what fears do you unearth?

Here’s to discovering inner peace along the trails of your walking meditation!

Beetles symbolize the power of solar energies and new life
If you have been waiting for the sun . . .
Then now is the time to let in the sunshine of warmer days and outward growth

You only have to wait ’till Tuesday to hear voices carry
The sound of musical new beginnings accompanying this New Moon

Next week, we will reach Father Sun’s peak
A fire on the mountain that shines his lightest day of the year
On the Summer Solstice
In the Northern Hemisphere

Beetles represent metamorphosis
Like seasons changing . . .
Beetles transform from eggs to grubs to winged creatures

Nature show us that everything is transient
There is security in plans
They give us a sense of order

But chaos must also flow in the river of Life
Awakening the element of surprise

Instead of getting bugged by the chronic irritability of disappointments –
Especially when a situation doesn’t meet your expectations
Try to receive what arrives in your wake with an open attitude of detachment

It feels empowering to not take things so personally

Like oceans bowing to the streams flowing yin
We empathize with true feminine power

Saying good-bye to our old selves is just acknowledging that change is part of Life
As is being born again into a new self
Or taking a deep breath after yawning an exhalation of dead air

Just a gentle nudging to wake up instead of going back to sleep

This process is akin to resurrection and reincarnation . . .
In our soul development

But you don’t have to physically die to ascend in your skin
We are an accumulation of our choices
Past lives and future selves occur in this lifetime

Do you need to let go of the past?

Karmic Law or cause and effect does not discriminate against
A “you only live once” mindset

Our actions have consequences – some unintended
and still others lie hidden in the shade

We are not talking about punishment or eternal damnation
But it doesn not mean we throw caution to the wind

Might we allow the sunlight to illuminate the shadows?

Do you need to shine new sunlight into your life?

Meditation on Lady Bugs awaken nurturing energies of
Practicality and healthy personal space protection . . .

Synchronizing with spring and summer’s outward growth

Temperatures are heating up . . .

What hidden waterfalls of knowledge, magic and soul-searching spiritual messages
Are wanting to cool down the fiery furnace of your soul?

See you further on up the trails,

A Full Worm Moon passed us by last week
Like Nature’s outwardly changing seasons
Our energetic tides ebb and flow internally

Herrings help us see the subtleties of communication
So that we become adept at reading what is
flying below the radar in our social environment

Genuine respect is a key ingredient to being a well-versed social animal
Our Divine constitution is awakened in this location

As shoreline birds,
Gull teaches us to see the writing on the wall and read between the lines

In between land and sea, shorelines are of places of great magic and mystery
Ordinary spaces between our busy events are wanting to be seen as extraordinary

Do you hear John Lennon’s voice fly in from the Dreamtime,
“Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans.”

Are you willing to sail away from an old hard land
and take a leap of faith onto the shores of a fluid New World?

Seagulls remind us that reality has both surface and depth

Powerful energies are intensifying and arriving through our perceptual pathways
Like when light is let in to brighten up a dark room
We don’t always like what we see

Meditation on allowing the sunlight to illuminate the shadows
is good medicine right now

When navigating elemental forces of land and air . . .
We need to learn to swim and fly
in the multidimensional waters and skies of Life

Body language is the psychology of communication
If we are what we eat and appetite comes with eating
Then may we drink in Herrin’s teachings to stimulate a healthy diet
to clean up the ecology of our daily lives

“The personal is the political”

Whether bleeding from our deepest cuts or flesh wounds
The time is now to release and let go of our old pains

Might as well weather our shifting fronts with transformational grace

Stay alert, stay aware and be present with what is
Try not to get sucked into the control dramas of others
Or your own insidious anxieties and chattering repetitive mental tapes

Be a spiritual watcher of yourself
We are aware that we are aware

A fortress around your heart might appear to serve as protection
from being stoned by others living in glass houses

But do you believe that the sweet surrender of vulnerability
will be held up by Universal pillars of Love and Truth
while holding a firm foundation of personal and cosmic intimacy?

King of the Mountain Lion represents the gentle roar of leadership
Leaving behind power without force in its tracks
Sometimes, being a leader means silently relishing in the growth of others

Climbing the final leg of the trail
Head on with graceful powerful balance of mind-body-spirit
Brings powerful intention into our physical world

Darkness ascends on the Winter Solstice meeting its zenith
Also coming soon we become a New Moon beacon of light
Resurrecting Christ Consciousness in our souls symbolizing new beginnings

Responsibility is a panic-free zone
Awakening to the ability to respond to any given situation

Do you remember the power of our tribal African shamanic brothers and sisters?
Fly away and meditate on the elemental forces of water and darkness for a spell . . .

How many times have we feared our own primal, dark and feminine nature?

The power of the internal martial arts is cultivated gradually
A cumulative effect of simmering softness of Yin energy

Particularly in America . . .
The heat of race relations is rising to the surface again
As is class consciousness and a desire for protective security
Stoking our embers and trigger points

Have you bought into learned helplessness
Or do you see an opportunity for transformative healing?

Yes, in terrorist fashion this land was squatted from our indigenous people
and then free labor was unjustly imported from the Motherland
And still today, a greedy minority balks at playing fair ball

We have discussed in this blog that the
dominant majority prefers to go unexamined
Picture the leaders of the Empire
coming clean and welcoming the rest of us to the bargaining table
in the spirit of trust and authenticity

But getting stuck in our own hate will consume us
so that we feed off this energy like the Walking Dead
Cannibalistic as that might sound
We are what we eat – spiritually speaking

We need to release our hate and set ourselves free of the bondage of slavery
Economic strangulation and unequal access to resources is a form of genocide

Our subconscious minds are lulled into repetitive negative thoughts
But we have the power replace our cognitive distortions
with simple positive affirmations
Believe in and feel them walking into our Being

We are mindful and diligent in our daily footsteps
Helping our Planetary and Universal consciousness internalize
a positive New Earth worldview
Becoming the change we want to see in the world

Imagine a fantastic imaginative conversation between Porcupine and Bear . . .

We are exploring a world where all men and women live in fraternal sorority.

 

And then we see through a lens of faith and trust that

We are in soulful alignment with Great Spirit’s Divine Plan.

 

Isn’t this akin to Otter’s medicinal story that we are all friends –

Whilst the idea of enemies is non-existent?

 

Don’t you know life is wicked good when there is no threat of fear present?

 

Everyday is an adventurous discovery . . .

 

When pricked by our modern adult-centric old world

of fear, greed and suffering . . .

No shame is found in bowing out gracefully –

from overindulgence in intensities of intellectualism and seriousness.

 

Curiosity stimulates our minds and resurrects our souls . . .

Sometimes being present with someone is all we need to do.

In a desire to help, perhaps doing nothing is helping

when our doings might be enabling.

 

Even a grumpy old bear is inspired by Porcupine’s way

of enjoying playfully childlike games.

 

Transformation into a New Age and Paradigm realizes the depth of embodying

Mountaintops of love o’er rocks of fear.

 

The present moment is what it is . . .

Might as well be resourceful and welcome what we need.

 

When we close our eyes in meditation . . .

We self-reflect into the realm of Spirit and see our own inner tapestry.

A most sweetly sacred and blessed communion with Creator.

How do we get to the light without traversing the dark?
When pouncing into Spring light, we are re-working a cultural story
that preaches fear of darkness . . .

Black like Panther illuminates the dark side of the moon
and a shadowy memory of Winter’s TAPS.
A Full Moon wanes with promise of a New Moon shine o’er a watery bend.

Sitting with a metaphysically inner-world theatrical movie trailer . . .
Lights, Camera, Vision!
Clairaudient audio-clips from alternate realities amplifies
a deafening sound of silence . . . What?

Flexing our soulful mind-body-spirit muscles at will –
quantum leaps out of old boxed in mind-sets . . .
We leap into new frontiers as first and fastest responders.

Skin on skin heightened perceptual touch opens up
psychometric portals in consciousness.
Awakening feminine powers of passionate sensuality – isn’t that the cat’s meow?

Dionysus inspires us to embark through the heart of the dark night of the soul . . .
Releasing fears when remembering that
“jealousy, envy, criticism, and judgment are refuges”
to the energy of insecurity . . .

Awakening to a mythical heroic quest through resurrection.

Somewhat akin to when Apollo re-appears in Rocky’s life to help him reclaim
“the eye of the Tiger.”
With Panther’s help – we can always get it back.

Since you floated away,
I’ve been pondering my feelings – particularly today.

If I were a movie and you were my director,
After your credits were over, I could no longer cry on your shoulder.

As your script flashed before my interior eye,
I was left disillusioned before I could cry.

Literally, I was your creation – your pride and joy.
You were my mommy, and I was your little boy.
