Orbs Of Light Meditative Poem

Prophecies of Climate Change spring forth revelations about our suffering.

All sentient beings experience grief in the transience of life.

But death of Winter awakens rebirth of Spring.

Movement away from darkness attracts us toward the light.

Forthcoming fiery new energies of Aries targets will be cooled by remembering tides of Pisces.

Zodiac watery transitional endpoint waves to its first signpost.

An Aquarian New Age, like the democratic process, is not without its labor of love.

Picture a growing golden white orb of light illuminating your soul

and then let it travel with your consciousness outward . . .

First filling the room, making its way through your home, community, region, planet

and then to the edge of the Universe and back to the home of your breath.

Like the inhalation and exhalation of your breath . . .

Feel expansion and then contraction of the Universe!

Gently allow the spotlight of mindfulness radiate from

your third eye and heart chakra with a powerful ray of love light.

Imagine your mind-body-spirit traveling in a Qi powered spacecraft,

freely beaming through the cosmos in a unified field of awareness.

Send these orbs o’er oceans and trees to the Ukrainian and Russian people.

Black people and Indigenous people, whales, dolphins, USOs and UFOs,

creatures from this planet and other ones.

We are Starseed Children of the Creator.

Humans are part of a universal tapestry.

But we are not the only ones.

Send it to mythical creatures of folklore.

For on some level, they too exist and deserve an equitable passport in sovereignty.

May we weave It together, within a convergence of peaceful harmony.

Scuba Diving In Seas of A New Moon In Pisces, The Tides Of March, Whale Consciousness, A Full Worm Moon & The Arrival of Spring Equinox

We will experience a New Moon in Pisces on Wednesday March 2nd, 2022. This time reflects heightened sensitivities and perceptions of our surroundings. Be mindful of feelings of insecurity, being passive and following a wait and see approach to life. With Pisces, soul travel is as natural as escapism lurking in the shadows because upstream and downstream personalities are part of our identities. It is wise not to get lost in the undertow of tempting fate. Stay engaged in creative and spiritual blueprints, and flow with powerful Pisces imaginative processes.

Pisces has an understanding of consciousness itself. A positive self talk mantra worth examining is that we are aware that we are aware. In its deeper and higher truth, meditation should be a goal-less discipline. But that doesn’t mean that we avoid setting goals. It just means that we are becoming spiritual watchers in the waves of letting go of outcomes. The ebb and flow of life’s attachments are a real part of the human experience. As part of our multidimensional reality, we are luminous, formless, energetic identities that are alive within our physical bodies. The Kingdom of Heaven is what Christ Consciousness spoke of through in his human form, otherwise known as Jesus. Similarly, Buddhist Psychology says that we have a say in how we experience beyond the networks we are all programmed with. Our souls are reflections of Creator’s luminous image, and as such, we are creative beings with infinite imaginative faculties. Einstein said that imagination is more important than knowledge. We can use our imaginations in meditation to become the change we want to see in the world, like Ghandi said. The prophecies of old were foreshadowing the New Aquarian Age we are transitioning into now.

A Full Worm Moon illuminates the sky on Friday, March 18, 2022. Like all Full Moons, this one goes by many traditional names, including the Eagle Moon by the Algonquin, the Goose Moon by the Cree, and the Sugar Moon by the Ojibwe Indigenous peoples. This moon marks the time of year when the sap of sugar maples starts to flow, and these trees are tapped in late winter to gather buckets of sap to transform into maple syrup. Traditional Full Moon names reflect the spirit of the season, such as when animals appear or reappear on the lands they inhabit. Humanity needs to realign with their spirited energies, as well as the spiritual energies of Nature. Mother Earth is a living organism. We are part of Her and She is part of us. We are all part of a cosmic connective web of consciousness.

When a Whale of a tide rolls in and the shifting seas come crashing in

Take a deep breath and let it sink into your belly . . .

Hit the pause button, reset and

listen to your drumming heartbeat.

Tap into your inner oceans of empathy and compassion for others.

What does whale have to say to your heart?

Are you hearing the hearts of what others are saying to you?

A Full Worm Moon signals robin’s return.

Whale reminds us that our soul purpose evolves with the

shifting connective tides of our planetary consciousness.

Spring Equinox celebrates equal light and dark days in Nature.

We look forward to peak light on Summer Solstice in June.

Water symbolizes creativity.

Dive into the depths of the unchartered seas of your soul

to retrieve the creative powers of your human element.

With Whale, we dive into archives of our planetary consciousness . . .

Their energy breathes an air of discovery into waters of our soul purpose

During our swim here on Mother Earth.

Meditation on Whale invites us to hear the universal heartbeat of

Mother Earth’s oceanic sea of consciousness.

Spring Equinox blossoms a fleeting energetic balance of light and dark . . .

We move into a time when feminine yin begins to wane as masculine yang waxes on

Sunlight climbs to its summit on the Summer Solstice;

Arriving in later June in the Northern Hemisphere

The converse is true to our friends in the Southern Hemisphere –

It is their Autumn Equinox there. 

Light and dark energies are equal but their darkness grows in power;

Climaxing on their Winter Solstice . . .

Where darkest day of the year precipitates a slow resurrection of light.

A Full Worm Moon brings the arrival of the robin –

Signifying that Spring has sprung!

Our ancestors identified this Full Moon as the last of winter –

What better medicine to remedy March Madness!

Whales are dedicated to their family.

Their sonar is akin to an acute form of empathy.

In the sense that we can learn to listen in;

and hear subtle stirrings inside with relationship to self and others.

This process increases our sensitivity.

Drinking in deep and relaxed belly breathing.

Is what’s on tap for a clear walking meditation . . .

May we all be spring fed lakes that leave behind

Clean water for others to follow in our wake.

Commentary:

Equinoxes are a good time to reflect on getting in touch with our masculine and feminine energies that coexist within our own selves and our planet. In much the same way as our planet has hemispheres, so do our brains. We are living in a time where we need to wake up to balance by dismantling, healing and unifying the illusion of separation. The sun does not dominate the moon. Rather, they both do their part to sustain homeostasis. Nor does male need to subjugate female. Without the creative energy of feminine power, none of us would be here. Energetic equanimity will help us transition more gracefully into an era of a co-creative we consciousness. Instead of a divisive us and them mentality, we can move deeper into a time when we realize that we all need to work together as uniquely diverse expressions of divine oneness. We need to embrace the tension of opposites and relax into that in our modern world. Yin and Yang are always in flux and Nature reflects that to us. Spiritually, the energy of Whale represents an awakening of our soul purpose. March is a time of seasonal transition between the winter and spring. Ideally, we are more introspective and inward during the darker months of winter. But when spring arrives, our budding inner work may blossom outward in a more yang-oriented and external fashion.

Our ancestors told stories about whales carrying the consciousness of our planet, like a universal library. Some people have had the good fortune to swim with whales in their natural environment. I’ll never forget the first time I went whale watching on a school field trip in Cape Cod, Massachusettes. Growing up in Great Lakes region in the Mid-West, you had to travel far to experience such a thing. But with meditation, we can virtually light up the same centers in our brains, and perceive the tidings that whales bring into our sea of consciousness. Picture Whale and take the emotional plunge to bring back the depths of their teachings. 

Equinoxes are times of energetic balance on our planet. In that, we can see Nature’s outward reflection of where we are moving on the inside. Given that, we are given an opportunity to work with natural forces to nurture the energies going on in our being. Like the Yin and Yang, masculine and feminine energies are always in flux, yet paradoxically seeking homeostasis. Even when darkness abounds, there is light at the end of the tunnel, just as when the sun lights up a room, there are dark corners out of sight. Yet we know they are all there. God is everywhere, the alpha and the omega, light and dark, masculine and feminine. That is the image we were created in.

Psychic ability is a natural part of our human superpowers. Some say that empathy is the highest form of psychic ability. Given that we need to build a lot more empathy on our planet, we might as well meditate on the collective wisdom of whale to do that. Empathy is like anything else – some of us are born with more or less of it than others. For some, it has to be learned intellectually, and then from there might take root in the heart. For others, it is a natural, heart-centered place to be. Regardless, every moment of being human is an opportunity to remember empathy as a way of life. You don’t condone or excuse someone’s bad behavior with empathy. You just show them you care about their plight regardless of how they got there, and are coming from a place love, and trying to understand. Be forewarned that this exercise requires moving beyond judgments and assumptions.

Today’s invasion of the Ukraine, is yet another tragic and unjust example of the consequential imperialism of the military-industrial complex. Can you imagine waking up to tanks, bombs and missiles in your own backyard? Concentrate the spotlight of mindfulness from your own head and your heart. Beam this orb within and onto the outer world around you, and beyond to help free your own suffering as well as the suffering of others around the planet and the outer rims of the expanding Universe. Remembering to breathe is a simple way to come back down into your soul, and into the present moment. This is where empathy lives. And it is home.

Take care of yourselves everyone,

Ari

A Plea to our Planetary movers and shakers . . .

A good old boy fraternal order cleverly breathes coal into the souls of its new initiates. As such, a chaotic choir sings a nightmarish karmic hypnotic trance-like opera of reward and punishment. In this refrain, it is hard not to get boxed into tick y-tacky packages of winners and losers, heroes and villains and angels and demons.

The old ways of maximum incentive for greed blinded by arrogance is way past crossing the line. Effectively playing the fox and the lion game of when to be assertive and when to be ingratiating has taken us to the edge of a cliff. Disillusionment abounds. Mister, there is a darkness on the edge of town.

We have a system that foments talk show pundits that profit off of the ignorance of their audience. Let us take for example the same talk show host that both criticizes Obamacare that he then parrots advertisements for accessing Obamacare in commercials that handsomely pay his salary. Without skipping a beat, this charlatan manipulation pulls the wool over the public at large – particularly the educated business class to unconsciously buy into polarizing arguments of us and them. Stop the insanity.

But with an infusion of spirituality into our humanity – we understand our survival is not a game. There are no enemies. We are One. The time is now for the paradigm to change. Powerful energies are moving in this Spring. Can you feel them budding?

It is easy to take a swing at the present moment . . . rat a tat tat . . . Russian toy soldier’s in the Ukraine . . . Now that’s gangsta.

Now is the time to shake-up and move on up into a co-creative system that is designed to nurture our natural luminosity. We can live in harmony with our Mother and all her sentient beings!

Imagine a conversation between Spider, Porcupine and Turkey . . .

Spider embodies a figure 8 shape that symbolizes our infinite and creative nature. We are empowered to clear Cosmic Karma by consciously weaving our dreams into our waking experience with reality. The more willing we are to choose to see the silver lining and make positive interpretations, the more potential we have to heal ourselves and our planet. What good is gold if our consciousness is weighed down by heavy metal?

Porcupine stimulates our chi by making the point that faith and trust in Great Spirit reveals that a Divine Plan that is unfolding in our lives. Through the wonder of childlike innocence, we are discovering Life’s mystery through portals of fantasy and imagination. Can you see these chimes of freedom flashing?

Turkey chimes in by leveling the playing field by reinforcing the wisdom that in the giving, there is receiving – illustrating a message board of shared blessings. Give it back . . . Take it back. It is time to ward off the evil spirits of pessimistic cynicism.

We have a need to feed our souls with an essential spiritual, physical and intellectual diet. Are you exhausted? How is your energy level? Manic, elevated, unhappy or low? Can you sit with loneliness? Are you afraid to get to know yourself on a deeper level? Why is that?

An internal Fountain of Youth springs eternal inside of each of us. However, it is useless if we do not tap into it.

Movement into a more equitable society requires a more buoyant, equilateral triangle. The movers and shakers are in positions of power to embody leadership by investing in equal access to resources. Their collective intention has been in the extreme opposite. Enough is enough!

An empire that is only interested in sustaining itself is not sustainable. Therefore, a vested interest in all of us winning, awakens an impetus to co-create Heaven on Earth instead of depleting Her resources to extinction.

Congratulations guys . . . maturation is kicking in.

See you further down the trails,

Ari
