Posts Tagged ‘Winter Solstice’

A Full Hunter Moon arrives on October 24th,
and then comes the traditional Samhain on Halloween

These events, along with this time of year,
and the energy of Bat awakens
a symbolic metaphorical death of the old self.

Do you see the veils thinning between
the spirit realm and our material world?

The line between realms is less concrete right now –
Giving us a clearer remembering that
even in death, there is also rebirth.

Our past lives are meant to awaken our soul’s evolution,
and help us expand beyond what we were.
Bat guides us through the dark night of the
soul so that we can hear the
spiritual callback of metamorphosis,
and who we are becoming.

Our ancestors celebrated the Samhain —
the approximate halfway point between the
Autumn Equinox and Winter Solstice.

When ancient Romans bobbed for apples,
they believed that the first person to successfully retrieve an apple,
would be the first to marry in the new year.

One way to look at letting go of old selves, masks,
and ways of being would be to
divorce yourself from the ways that no longer
serve you in your consciousness.

Look beyond your habituated mind . . .

What is underneath your robotic doings of
your everyday routine?

Is there something new that
your soul would like to express?

In much the same way as Rome wasn’t built-in a day,
A New Earth doesn’t happen overnight either.
As we head further into waning light, and darker days,
we have an opportunity to turn yin-ward,
and plant the seeds into our souls that we
want to see come out into the sunlight in spring.

A new marriage happens between masculine and feminine
energies around the Vernal Equinox in March.

But before that, we will start to coax back
the light after the darkest
day of the year on the Winter Solstice.

Remember the mantra that energy is energy . . .
It’s what you do with it that counts.
It is perfectly natural to feel more tired,
experience darker emotions, need more rest,
journal more, have more active lucid dreams at night,
and be revisited by the ghosts of yesteryear,
and maybe even past regrets.

But don’t get stuck in beating yourself up about it.
Remember to be gentle on yourself.
Being hard on yourself might feed your ego,
but it only hurts your soul.

Is there a spirit of a new way of being with yourself
that wants to come alive in your consciousness?

When we make a conscious choice to come down into our souls,
and dig into the hidden nooks and crannies, then
it is possible to look upon whatever it is that you see
with a heartfelt, gentle gaze of compassion.
It is possible to learn to love
all aspects of yourself, even if it seems daunting.

Some people think you have to kill your ego, or even bury a lifetime
to release your demons. But that isn’t really the case.

The ghosts of the habituated mind
can illuminate a new way of living with awareness

Look in the mirror of your mind,
call on the spirits of the season,
and use the energies of this time of year
to let go of your old selves, masks, and past ways of being that you
want to release, and send them out into the Universe.

Till we tweet again peeps,

Tomorrow is the Winter Solstice . . .

It is the darkest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere

The Holiday season is upon us . . .
Merriment and festive spirits are in the air

It is a good time to come down into our souls and gather with family and friends

But darker days, and mixed-feelings come on strong
that are not always easy to make friends with

In your inner conversations with yourself, try to be gentle on yourself . . .
It is a gift to have a forgiving attitude about your humanity and imperfections –
(and the humanity and imperfections of others)

Being in that space calms down self-inflicted suffering!

Being present with yourself and others
is a far greater gift than getting sucked in to the consumerist
drive to outdo each other with manic striving to buy the perfect gifts

Notice how shopping and work are can easily
become culturally sanctioned addictions

Might as well hit the pause button, take a step back, and
take in the spiritual meaning behind this time of year

Allowing yourself to receive love and be compassionate
is a blessing that is shared by all in everyday exchanges

Meditate on healthy giving and receiving during this time of year especially
Celebrate the rising light and waning dark as it unfolds on Nature’s cycle

There will be a Full Wolf Moon on the first day of the Western New Year
May we discover new tracks into a new world

See you further along the trails,

Mountain Lion is a powerful silent leader
Her strong feminine energy guides us into the darker caverns of our souls

Winter Solstice sheds its light on our world by reflecting
the darkest day of the year in the North

Our friends in the South will celebrate peak light
on their Summer Solstice

Darker emotions are front and center right now
as are dark edges of an old world, and yesterday’s ghosts

But even in our darkest hour, there is a beacon of light
Use it as a torch to examine your self with mindful/heartfelt love

Heaven, like Hell is a state of consciousness
It is your choice whichever inner/outer world you choose to focus on

And whichever dimension you focus on, will be what reflects back to you
to reinforce the mind-set that you keep

Cats reflect mystery, much like the ways of our Universe
Mediation on Mountain Lion can help us see in the dark without fear

Learning to be human is not easy
But if we relax our fears, and follow their tracks toward love

Our experience here becomes more joyous, and light-hearted
This is a good time of year to come down into your souls

The dinosaurs of an old world feel entitled to keep their way of life
There are winners and losers, and you get what you deserve

But there is a Golden Age New World of Aquarius
that sees through we consciousness eyes of oneness and unity

Diversity is respected and appreciated here in this vibration

Those in Hell will reach out their hands to bring you down
They are not reaching out to you for a leg up

Picture them in love and light and let them go
Focus on gratitude for everything – even tragic circumstances

Doing so will facilitate releasing old demons into the fire
and blaze new angelic trails toward healing

See you up the trails,

When I picture Crow, I notice magic and mystery unveiled in everyday life . . .

Ordinary moments that typically appear as mundane, boring or dull
are revealed as extraordinary with opening spiritual eyes . . .

And when contemplating Mercury in Retrograde, fake news,
and general feelings of living in the Twilight Zone . . .

It seems like it is getting harder to discern fact from fiction,
what’s real, and what’s fantasy

We all have to find balance between our heads and hearts
Probably a good time to relax into our intuitive side right now for clarity . . .

Otherwise, trying to find truth through logic
and rational thought processes might drive you nuts

Like the recent tax cut proposals, movement to impeach Trump,
and the powers that be pounding war drums to distract us
from what’s really going on behind the scenes

I think of Lao Tzu when he spoke of the boasting of thieves after a looting . . .

Where did the saying come from that says power corrupts
but absolute power corrupts absolutely?

Does this belief stem from a projection by those who have
never experienced the dimension of
standing in an authentic position of personal authority?

Yeah, darker days might be getting you down . . .

But if you can look at the bright side, remember that we will start
coaxing back the light after the Winter Solstice on December 21

See you up the trails,

A Full Cold Moon comes out of its Bear cave this Sunday . . .

Dimming lights are slowing us down
Winter is coming soon with Winter Solstice later this month

Mercury in Retrograde amplifies darker days ahead
Shadows of old selves are shedding light onto your awakening new self

Do you see reflections of who you used to be into your mirror today?

Are they aspects of your soul revisiting you to help you
transition into a new season in your consciousness?

See this reflection as inspiration to become the changing you
and let yourself let go of who you were in relation to yourself and others

Picture yourself becoming the new self that you want to see in the world
Imagine a New Earth flowering in your Dreamtime . . .

When you acknowledge that we live in a Matrix that has programmed us with
repetitive and controlling old mental tapes . . .

We open up to imagining ourselves creating novel stories

There is a collective belief that the Earth is a hellish nightmare,
with winners and losers, that’s just the way it was, is and always will be

But Bear reminds us that Life should be sweet like honey!

We are equipped to Intuit wisdom from the Heavens of the Dreamtime
to bring it back into our material world with the grounding power
of wise old trees with roots reaching deep into the Earth . . .

In this space, we are building a new dream for ourselves and our planet!

See you up the trails,

Sunlight is dimming now . . .

Darker days, and current events on our planet today
want to seduce us into getting boxed into downward doomsday
mindsets that fade spirits into dark edges

Shadowy geopolitical turmoil cloud
the light at the end of the tunnel

Sometimes, the ghosts of yesteryear resurrect their haunting
Try to look upon past relationship dysfunctions with clear eyes
so that you can see from a new vantage point

Like a dying relationship, the death of the leaves
breathes in the possibility of new life . . .

Meditate on the new beginnings of a new moon

Train yourself to climb the dunes one step, one breath,
and one moment along the sands of time . . .

All we have is right now . . .
You can choose dive into the depths of your soul’s waters

Close your physical eyes for a moment, and open your spiritual eye to
see yourself opening up to abundance . . .

Say, “I am calm, I am relaxed, I am Divine Nature!”

Like our spiritual ancestors before . . .

Picture a turkey to ward off the negative energies that
want to sap your energy field . . .

When each one of us is awakening to the light of inner peace,
we are simultaneously becoming the change we want to see in the world

Just as Hell is a state of consciousness,
so too is the Heaven of a New Earth

Walk into your Divine Nature to witness the revelation
of a new dimension, while experiencing a vibrational shift . . .

See you along the trails,

Last week’s Full Beaver Moon fades into darkening skies . . .
Our clocks turned back yinward

Days are getting shorter in the Northern Hemisphere,
while temperatures are dropping dramatically

Veils are thinning . . .
Making it more challenging to distinguish between physical/spiritual reality

We passed the Samhain – the approximate mid-point
between Autumn Equinox, and Winter Solstice

Now we are moving away from Autumn,
in the direction of Winter . . .

The holiday season is arriving –
Signaling mixed feelings for many of us

It can be seductive to get caught up in
the perceptual reality of lack

Picture a raccoon to help you awaken abundance . . .

Can you see yourself receiving everything you need?

Nature gives us a good opportunity to nurture our relationship
with darker emotions now, if only we come down into our souls

But it is tempting to avoid this process through
chronic distractions and resistances . . .

Consider consciously putting on various masks and exploring
diverse, and hidden aspects of yourself

Sometimes emotional blackness carries venomous bites . . .

But allowing a feminine position of vulnerability
is part letting go of their energetic grip

Do what you can to relax your attachments to the bitter
digestion that can accompany traversing through murky emotional waters . . .

See you along the trails,

Ari
