After my grandfather left this Earth recently, I’ve been thinking about my mother,
and grandmothers, whose souls departed our planet many moons ago.

Speaking frankly, my primary caretakers are gone with the wind . . .

And yet they will always be with me,
just as yours that have passed on are with you.

This is a sobering experience,
and not without feelings of grief, sadness, and loss.

Mercury in retrograde is a good time to revisit and reflect on past relationships.

You can also work with the intensities of summer eclipses that
bring back past experiences to the surface.

It can be hard not to wanderlust into an internal widespread panic,
with regards to your past fears or regrets . . .

But their spirits keep on streaming into our world . . .

They want to connect with us in spirit together,
and help us co-create Heaven on Earth.

Can you hear them wanting to help us lighten our load, and feel peace in our hearts?

What baggage are you ready to give back to them that was passed on to you?

Releasing what has weighed you down in this lifetime is a good karmic clearing.

We have all been handed down landfills
that need to be composted, mulched, and cleared.

Yeah, entanglement with form is natural for spirit,
till it leaves its mind-body connection . . .

It is also natural for it to feel free when it let’s go of the ties that bind.

Many of the children that I have worked with have lost their parents to
sudden deaths, such as drug overdoses, homelessness, incarceration, and are now
being raised by aging grandparents, extended family, or the foster care system.

We all need to keep working on love – by being in our hearts with one another,
even when tough love is called upon, do it with compassion.

It can be challenging to know how other people are going to feel
much later in life when their parents leave them behind.

It can bring up unexpected feelings of abandonment.

Regardless of your chronological age, it really doesn’t matter how old you are,
as the feelings you deal with are the same, like with our animal friend pets, etc.

We might process them differently, and we all grieve in our own ways.
But these feelings are universal, and they need to be supported, and processed.

I remember a High School teacher once sharing some wisdom that children
become adults when they wake up to the reality that their parents aren’t gods . . .

Rather they are human beings.

That bell of mindfulness resonated with me back zen,
and it rings true even more with me right tao.

I understand that many people get stuck in a vibration that looks like:

Clinging to a belief that you should hold tight to your loved ones, and
that your children should lean on you.

There is a voice that says that you deserve to suffer, and be driven by
guilt, shame, a generalized sense of duty, and sacrifice, feeling unworthy of
receiving from others, and being afraid of the mystery and adventure of life.

There is a hard-edged, nose to the grindstone security in that mind-set.
You might even feel empowered by trying to control everything in your life.

But it is a recipe for perpetual disappointment, let down, and unhappiness.
And it is difficult to Let Go and Let God in that vibration.

Consider shifting your mind-set into a receiving perspective,
of welcoming your goals and objectives as arriving, but without getting hung up
on the outcomes you desire or prefer . . .

Be open to receiving the abundant possibilities
that you might not have planned for!

Take in your experiences, whatever they are, and observe them as a
spiritual watcher of whatever events come up in your field of vision in real-time.

Till our next walking meditation,

Turkey Vulture flies in the skies this week,
in concert with a blossoming Full Pink Moon on Friday . . .

Spring is here in the Northern Hemisphere
and a colorful world is blossoming before our eyes

Psychically hang glide with Mother Earth’s thermals with minimal effort . . .

This signals an opportune time for a general
Spring Cleaning through the Moon’s last quarter

Purification, death-rebirth, new vision and connections to a
marital relationship with Heaven and Earth is awakening

Take in a living breath of oneness . . .
Exhale the dead air of segregationist thinking

Outward expansion of Yang’s expressiveness
Gives rise to powerful intuitive feminine song bird vocals

The resourceful ways of Turkey Vultures reflects
renewable energy and a natural conservation of our environment

May the political and business interests reflect the wisdom of Turkey Vulture!

Their medicine of disease prevention is best practice

Meditate on levitating above the physical laws of the material realm
So that we can release old ways that no longer serve

Walk in alignment with your own roots sinking into Mother Earth
Let any negative energies flow down into Her for renewable compost

Connect with ancestors whom have passed on . . .

May their spirits guide us into a unified playing field
reflecting a Heaven and Earth connection that we can see
with individual and collective eyes

A flooding of emotional memories from when they were living comes on like waves
Picture surfing them to gain a deeper appreciation for the living moment

Till next week takes flight,

Ari

Weasel powerfully guides us into the dark with a
keen sense of naturalistic observation –
Their medicine helps circumvent obstacles that get in the way . . .

Sly like Fox, their energy awakens
our ability to pursue goals in catlike stealth

Paradoxically, remember to do that with the
grace of a swan and a best policy of honesty

Are you trusting your feelings and senses?

Yin is a dark feminine energy that can come on like a storm . . .

Try not to get sucked into its vacuum by remembering that
rainbows paint the skies illuminated by the light of day

Are you digging in enough into the dark and narrow tunnels of your soul?

Let it become obvious that there is grave danger in the shadow building
due to the unintended consequences of
an “ends justify the means kind of thinking”

You can see that play out in our world today in economic mobster like fashion

Look back upon the precolonial old new world for a spell . . .

Do you remember when Weasel foreshadowed the ships coming in
and the strange new ways of ladies and gentlemen with
“guns, germs and steel” from the old world?

It takes a nation of robotically controlled dinosaurs to deplete
our base’s natural resources to hold us back . . .

But if we dig deep enough then we see that
there is enough and we can all win

What would happen if the overwhelming majority –
all had equal access to the resources we need?

Instead of selling out to an Imperial massive welfare
funneled straight from your checkbooks to a privileged and dominant minority . . .

Weasels, like janitors seem to have a knack for knowing
the black truth about what is going on in organizations –
even if they are not privy to the happenings behind closed doors

Picture a weasel to help you find out about hidden reasons
that are cloaked behind brilliant disguises . . .

If you are stuck between a rock and a hard place –
Use the energies of a New Moon this week
Coupled with Weasel to help you find novel ways out . . .

Perceive through a solution-focus lens of ingenuity and heightened energy

Onward up the trails,

Ari

We are kissed by a strong Pink Full Moon today –
Oh what a greeting!
Dancing under a bright Spring Eclipse setting

A powerful and transformative catalyst illuminates the scenery . . .
Picture a budding green New World

Have you caught wind of the pungent stink of rebirth in the air?

We humans are mostly water –
So, it stands to reason that, on some level at least,
we are all affected by Full Moon’s
In much the same way as “hospitals, police stations and the ocean’s tides”
Might as well swim with Her currents

Isn’t that just another opportunity for deepening our empathy for one another?

Porcupine medicine stimulates the flow of innocence and joy
Reawakening a sense of wonder energetically
A light-hearted feeling of detachment is rediscovered playfully

Some Native American tribes use Porcupine quills to
stimulate energy to get stuck emotional waters
become flowing streams

Tribal wisdom on this continent is akin
to ancient Taoist wisdom that brought acupuncture needles to these shores

It is as if Porcupine leaves behind an air of nonchalant humor that jests
that even beyond China, that’s just the way the egg rolls

Yes, we live in an intense outer world with serious problems
But there are more powerful than usual spirited energies
that want us to see infinite solutions
facilitate positive changes moving away from our dysfunctional ways

Do you have enough faith to move mountains and trust in a Divine Plan?

Learning to dance in our daily walk
Awakens a sense of blissful adventure

Try not to get pricked by our anxiety-ridden, adult-centric old world
of fear, greed and suffering . . .
Train yourself to let go of
the toxicity of manipulation, dog eat dog and an eye for an eye mentality

Be open to the magical mind of child
There is strength in vulnerability
But keep your inner child well protected

Try not to get swayed by what others think you should or shouldn’t be doing
Explore fun and enjoyable activities that you want to do

Are you feeling charged by the emotional barbs of others?

“Freedom comes when we deal with the pain behind the button,
thus disconnecting our automatic reaction to being pushed”

We are all created intrinsically equal
Nobody is built better or worse than anyone else
We just have different talents
that, with our diverse gifts, we can help build a better world for all of us

Curiosity stimulates our minds and resurrects our souls . . .
Know the power of imagination and fantasy
just waiting to be discovered within the mundane world of everyday life

Even a grumpy old bear is inspired by Porcupine’s way
of enjoying playfully childlike games.

May we allow our identification with intellectualism to fall away
As we spring forth a fiery heart’s intuition

See you further on up the trails,

Ari
