My nephew & his girlfriend just had a baby
he was born at 8:36am
1 minute after he had told me he was ready to come hOMe
he whispered that he would arrive in a state of fire & peace
As I sat in meditation the morning of his birth
miles away from the unknown progress at the hospital
thoughts of baby Malcom
were clear as ice
We talked and I invited him to arrive
Instead of staying stuck in this apparent impasse ~ open your mind to the infinite number of possibilities before you ~ and make a choice.
~ Spider Wisdom from Dr. Steven Farmer
Earlier this week I had a moment of sitting in my car trying to remember if I had eaten lunch. I didn't feel hungry. Being a very visual person ~ it is "typically" easy for me to see the pictures of before. But no image was registering of me putting food in my belly. A tell tale sign that I've had moments of numb. Lost in my mind & wounded in heart.
The drum beat and Spirit knew. The spirit within nature ~ within you ~ within we ~ within the infinite All. Great Spirit ~ you may call God ~ and my soul names Divine Love. She knew I was calling to her sovereign truth and infinite wisdom. The drum beat rattled & roared waking the dormant light that was bursting to shine.
I call them winks from spirit. Those sweet messages that access the wisdom of your soul. But sometimes ~ the whispers become shouts and then nudges ~ so strong you can feel a tap on the arm or a push forward. And that is how it happened when spirit came a calling ~ calling me to hold sacred space as a guide and channel for an Intuitive Medicine Circle.
Strength. Tenderness. Rawness. Curiosity.
Join me Sep 4, 11, 25 ... join 1 - 2 or all 3 to tap into your physical, mental, and soul strength.
Yes ~ my soul breathes the wisdom of yoga and my human body also trained with a professional boxer in Washington DC ~ Lawrence...lightweight champ and all around fantastic person. I will never forget the day he asked me this question ...
As the Fall leaves change and gracefully drop from their homes, a group of women will be embarking on a yoga shamanic island retreat in Minnesota. Tucked away not far from Battle Lake, MN sits a little private peninsula (called Xanadu Island). A place of betwixt and between. Hugged by water ~ where access to our buddha chitta knowing stands in the middle ~ the veil reveals and we Rise!
On Aug 17th in the small lake community of Ottertail ~ we will gather. Hugged by trees, tended to with soft lush grass, and nurtured with loving energy. A medicine wheel vortex will be created to surround your sweet body, mind, and soul ... it will help you to nurture your unique essence..the light within that craves only raw and real. The light and sovereign truth of YOU. Yes! The capital YOU.
Returning from my travels to Ireland ~ my language has evolved. Mystical ~ Celtic ~ Gaelic words and wisdom forever etched into my existence. In the rain and amongst the elements begging for my attention ~ I was completely present.
Living in the Now.
And in that space ~ I unwound and continued my journey of becoming...nothing.
Baby A was crying and his new momma of 3 weeks said that he had been like that for a few days. "He can't be set down or he'll cry". It was after her voice shared those words that the energies started to float towards me. And so we ventured ~ up the stairs where his nursing awaited for the welcoming ceremony to begin.
For just one day
you stepped out
You slowly yet deliberately
unzipped the suit
the suit of warrior armor
that adorns your flesh and bones
the one that has helped you for lifetimes
yet in this moment
in this blink of time
