It's time for the New Year's tidings and ringing in the new...
...and like an exhale releasing the old..
The anticipation for the New Year and all it may hold is palpable. Anything is possible.
Beautiful tables are set for feasts of savory and sweet, places are set for community and glass goblets are filled with golden bubbles. Altars are made fresh with evergreens and juniper incense. Crystals are given cleansing baths under the pale winter moon.
There is an air of expectation. A vast potential enfolds us and ripples out in all directions.
Who do we want to be this year, what adventures will unfold, what beauty will we see, what love will we embrace?
It can be an emotional time of year.
The pressures from friends and family, food and drink….
Presents, parties, long nights, wintry weather, loneliness, angst, drama, longing, desire, dynamics, fear, expectations, obligations, guilt….
As well as, love, light, connection, desire, togetherness, joy, comfort, ease, satisfaction, delight, safety, giving, sparkling light, color, cozy fires, warmth….
Wherever you find yourself in the continuum it can be helpful to have a few special tricks to help navigate all the energy of the season.
Cruise through this time with more energy, stamina and lightness. Feel the effects of stress and its imminent depletion melt away.
Spring is a ripe and beautiful time. The quickening of the earth can be felt in our own bodies...in our bones...
We feel the pull outward from inside our Winter's nest, where we have resided all the cold, dark months.
There is something in the air and in the light that can inspire us deeply in the Spring. We long for a freshness, perhaps a way to cast aside our old self and step into the new.
We have the very real energetic support of the Earth awakening to support that intention.
The candles are lit and the altar is overflowing with delicious foods. There is soft music playing and the smell of sweet grass in the air. Outside the sky is a rosy blue color and February's chill is in the air. Inside, the stove is bubbling with honey, cream and pure vanilla. Magic is afoot as we stoke the inner creative flame of passion and sensuality.
There have been a few times in my life where the strong voice of clarity seemed to reach out to me..
where everything around me seemed to stop and I tumbled down into a place within myself of the deepest, most profound truth.
I knew, without words, exactly what I was supposed to do next.
The hot breath of summer begins to wind into cooler fall nights. The corn is "as high as the elephant's eye" and festivals, fairs and carnivals abound. The sun and rain have lovingly bathed the land for many months and the wee seeds we planted are mature and full of life.
We feel the excitement of the first harvest of the season. Our hard work is beginning to bear fruit. This is where we begin the Autumn Session of Mystery School.
Sacrifice, death, rebirth, nurturance, transformation are all aspects to consider at this time of year.
We must consider the joys of life and the ways we may fill up our inner well with the life, light and nutrients from the sun and plants at this time of year, in preparation for the dark nights and cold ahead.
Mid summer has arrived with its hot breath and radiant warmth. Gardens are brimming with the first vegetables of the season and the world seems to be filled with technicolor delights.
The sun is at its pinnacle and we enjoy days that seem endless with light. Here we pause at the precipice before taking the slow walk back toward the darker half of the year.
We move into a more expanded awareness at this time of year. Our senses seem heightened we feel the outward pull of the sun toward abundance, beauty and earth pleasures.
The summer solstice is celebrated by many cultures and traditions around the world with the central emphasis being on the power of the sun. The sun is a strengthener and essential to our well being. It is closely connected to our health and the fertility of the land.
We all have goals and dreams that we are working toward.
This is one of the things, that makes a rich and meaningful life but sometimes we are limited by doubts, fears, worry and a lack of imagination.
Does it seem like everyone else around you is living their dreams?
Or that things aren't moving fast enough towards your goals?
It's time to expand our ideas about what is possible. Our thoughts and perceptions often keep us limited in what we are able to achieve in our lives.
I have a special energy healing tool to share with you, that can help accelerate you toward your goals and the manifestation of your dreams and desires.
You are invited to step into the healer within you and to take a journey into the mystery.
Since the beginning of time there have been sacred schools where seekers have gathered to learn the language of their own inner guidance and to discover how to access other realms for healing of themselves and others. These schools have provided solid ground from which to journey to and connect to Source, in all of its names and manifestations.
The skies are bright and the days lengthen. We feel a pulse within ourselves, a rhythm that is undeniable. The gorgeous weather draws us ever outward, into the landscape and out from the more contemplative months behind us.
The world is going green and flowers and blossoms and all kinds of plants have returned to the verdant world. Summer is a time for spending more time outside, getting reacquainted with our skin and feeling our own inner quickening.
