We have just moved past the cross quarter point on the year's wheel, known as Imbolc, and also known as Candlemas. How has it been for you this winter? Did you use the dark of the nearby passing season to inwardly reflect, and find those nuggets of wisdom and gems of self-realization that tend to bury themselves and hibernate?
Now is time to take note of the increasing light of each passing day, and begin to call forth the seeds that were planted over the winter months, and that are now germinating. Feel the life of these seeds stirring, and beginning to crack open and release their gifts, reaching with longing and grace toward the sun. Imbolc translates to "in the belly". Feel your dreams and visions awaken from deep within your being, and extend gratitude towards them, and toward the energies of Spirit that have assisted with the incubation of these dreams.
Tune deeply now into your intuition, into your 'gut feelings', into those sparks of life and information that reside in your belly. Try to get a sense for any new ideas and projects that are prepared to spark, and send to them the love of your presence and conscious awareness. Breathe life into them, communicate with them, and ask them in which way they wish to work with you for the highest good of yourself, your family, your community, and the world community. How can they best be served by you sending love and intention to them, and how can you co-create with these sparks of life and creativity in order to bring them to light and into their fullest, divine potential? Here is pictured an image of Brighid, the Celtic Fire Goddess of renewal, healing, purification and creativity.
Finding Your Creative Spark:
Don't you love it when your creativity manifests itself? Creativity brings us benefits that go far beyond artistic expression. Even if you don't think of yourself as an especially creative person, you'll be glad to know that it's there within you just waiting for you to use it! Creativity can be expressed in many different ways. Plus, there are many techniques you can use to develop and nurture your natural creativity.
Like many people, you may think that you're either creative or you're not. What a myth! If you long to be more creative, then go for it!
Here are ten tips you can use to become a new, more creative you:
Remember to be patient when nurturing your creativity. Make a habit of enjoying some creative techniques daily and, make the commitment to yourself that you will continue to move from your creative center, from the fire in your belly, dancing with the magic that continually moves within and around you.
Ahhh… magic. This is a word I truly love. There are many synonyms to this word, plenty of which can stir up unsettling emotions and thoughts for some people. One synonym however, is one which I have personally chosen to use in my professional business, and that word is Alchemy. Alchemy, in its very basic sense, is the art of transformation occurring at its deepest level. When I looked up the definition of magic at dictionary.com, this is what I found:
As a noun -
1. the art of producing illusions as entertainment by the use of sleight of hand, deceptive devices, etc.; legerdemain; conjuring: to pull a rabbit out of a hat by magic.
2. the art of producing a desired effect or result through the use of incantation or various other techniques that presumably assure human control of supernatural agencies or the forces of nature. Compare contagious magic, imitative magic, sympathetic magic.
3. the use of this art: Magic, it was believed, could drive illness from the body.
4. the effects produced: the magic of recovery.
5. power or influence exerted through this art: a wizard of great magic.
As an adjective -
8. employed in magic: magic spells; magic dances; magic rites.
9. mysteriously enchanting; magical: magic beauty.
10. of, pertaining to, or due to magic.
11. producing the effects of magic; magical: a magic touch.
verb (used with object), mag·icked, mag·ick·ing.
12. to create, transform, move, etc., by or as if by magic: I magicked him into a medieval knight.
If I am to be blunt, I will say that I believe that an individual holding magic is not a myth. This brings me to the essence of why I started this blog – the essence of the truth that is held within each of us to change things, from the inside out. From our deepest levels of self, in order to see outward results that are filled with beauty, with truth, and with awakening. To reawaken the memory of our innermost wild selves, to recall that we are here in order to hold divinity and right relationship with all beings – with all our relations.
To come to the understanding that we did not just chance upon being here, and simply stumble into a human body, and then flounder in confusion and distress as to why we have extrasensory experiences and deeply affective emotions that bring us continually to new understandings and seemingly obscure crossroads. To wipe the sleep from our eyes so that we may see – truly see – that there is so much more to our time on this planet than earning a living and getting the newest, the bigger and the better. We are here. We have already earned our living – our right to be here. So what will we do with our time? What will we do with the magic inside of us as humans – the magic that we truly hold to produce desired effects that are heart centered, to drive illness from the body, to recover from disastrous events, to re-enchant ourselves with our world and the beauty that surrounds us every moment of every day? What will we do… to create… to transform… and to move ourselves into a more harmonious state of living?
There is a deep process involved in recovering the understanding of our true potentials, embracing them, and then learning to work with them. Many people are presently working on this process. If, however, I had an accumulation of directly shifting powers at my fingertips, right now, and without question, here is what I would do. I would immediately remove all nuclear power plants from the face of the planet and simultaneously wipe the slate clean of how to create these structures from human memory, thereby solidifying the impossibility of ever doing it again. I would reach forward into the future and delete any future possibility of creating anything even slightly related to nuclear energy and set the precedent within the human psyche for tangible, readily working ways to utilize that which mother nature has already gifted us with. In this I mean, I would set within the collective human mind a greater understanding of how solar and wind power could be utilized immediately.
Then, I would use my magic powers to create all of the necessary means to remove radiation from our oceans, atmosphere, and all things connected to these that have been poisoned. I would remove from the collective human psyche all of those emotions and thought patterns that have caused destruction in any way, shape, or form, and on any level. This includes the removal of jealousy, belief in scarcity, and fear of the unknown. I believe that even just these three things have held the potential to bring the world into the mess that it is right now.
The reason why I did not say that I would remove fear, is because I believe that fear has its place. Despite what many like to propose, fear is natural, much like anger. It is these emotions that we have shunned which deserve much deeper understanding from us. These two emotions are major catalysts, and once moved through, we find that we have moved to new understandings and feel much more mobilized than we did previously. I would use my magic to heal the earth and all her peoples, and instill joy as the new paradigm. The natural, organic state of joy that comes from within, and has simply been forgotten. Only because, we have allowed ourselves to forget. So then, I would use my magic to help us all to remember. To remember who we were, who we truly are, and the paths of true joy and divinity that we came here to take. I would use my magic to help us remember, that at the core of our essence, we are divine. And we can all make this magic.
We have entered the time of New Moon in Scorpio, which allows us to tap deeply into the energies of water, emotional healing, and the deeper more hidden aspects of our emotions and psyches. Occurring right after Samhain, this New Moon is also known as Lunar Samhain. The days are growing shorter as we approach Winter Solstice, and everything around us seems to be calling us to go inward and reflect.
Scorpio energy is very strong in its ability to bring shadow aspects up for acknowledgment and to shine light on them. Now is a good time to feel out where you may be projecting thoughts, emotions, or feelings such as anger, jealousy, or unresolved childhood issues. This is also a time where issues surrounding "leadership" can come to the forefront - particularly issues regarding those that we feel we should be able to count on to truly lead us toward where we feel will be a "better place". This boils down to leadership within all arenas, the political, the spiritual, the parental, and so forth.
Scorpio is a strong contender energy in supplying and evoking creative/sexual energy. Tapping deeply into your own creativity and fine tuning this energy to tackle creative projects that have been simmering for a good while would be very beneficial right now. Also, doing some internal work to take a close look at your thoughts and views toward leadership - and how you can begin to take steps toward acknowledging the true Leader within and begin taking reverent responsibility for your own creation of life's circumstances. Fine tune the essence of where you may have given your power away at any point in your life, and do the necessary work to heal and reclaim that power so that once we begin to move out of this beautiful 'silence', forward movement can be made in great strides toward healing and harnessing the Light in a more potent fashion.
Here are some tips and suggestions for working with this Scorpio New Moon energy:
Remember to be gentle with yourself right now, but hold a strong vision for what you wish to see take place within your entire body/mind/spirit system, your life and those closest to you, and the global community as a whole. Now is the time to get as real with ourselves as we can get, and visualize, move, and breathe our deepest heart's desires into fruition. Always remember your Soul's true potential. We are all so much more than we have allowed ourselves to believe. Let us REMEMBER.
Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the infinite peace to you.
I came across this blog post tonight, by Aaron Paquette, and it really hit me. There is a whole lot of intense and powerful movement happening right now, with all of the energy surging around the awakening of the Divine Feminine. I love this, I really do. As a trance dancer and medicine woman, I have been anxiously awaiting this time in our earth's history. I could feel it coming, ever since I was a small child. I am prepared for the upheavals that the earth has in store for us, the cracking open of surfaces that have been still for too long, the washing away of old and harmful patterns, and the healing of ancient wounds as the dust is wiped from our eyes.
Now, as a mother and wife, I have witnessed and experienced firsthand the struggle that our men face. There is a bit of a sense of loss, a triggering of deep and old wounds, and an uncertainty that can shake one to the core. New ground is being paved now as a new world is being formed. And for those men and fathers that, with thanks to the mainly unconscious conditioning of our 'modern' society, feel that they have nowhere to turn with their emotions... this can be a time of depression. It has been long bred into the veins of our society that emotional expression by a man, particularly expression of fear or uncertainty, is unsettling. More than that, it can be looked down upon as a sort of 'weakness'. I feel for our men. I really do. Now more than ever, they could use a place to lay their heads and weep. I have witnessed much anger on the parts of women - anger toward the domination that masculine power has symbolized, and weariness of the patriarchal system.
All of this is well and valid. I fully understand the anger toward the patriarchal system which has held us in chains of linear action and scrutinizing thought. Can we turn this into a positive, and allow for the release and emotional expression of the masculine energy? Can we find it in our hearts to allow for this shift, however intense it may be, and make room for new growth?
I believe that with deep wisdom and new acceptance, we most certainly can. Thank you Aaron Paquette, for inspiring this post.
"This piece talks about the legacies of Residential School, of fractured communities, of a culture that is still here despite concerted attempts to destroy it.
Lughnasadh is the first harvest point on the wheel of the year. Most people who are familiar with the sacred timing of Lughnasadh are aware of it occurring on the first day of August each year. More traditionally however, Lughnasadh occurs at the exact opposite point on the wheel of the year from Imbolc. This year, that precise opposition occurs on the 7th of August. This is the time of year that Leo holds sway, and this year in particular will be very exciting since Leo will be in the New Moon coming up on August 5th. This is a very firey time of year, the hottest time of year for many places in our world, and therefore it is a fantastic time for your personal creation mechanics. In fact, the very root of the word, "Lugh", means "Light". This is a wonderful time for you to infuse your ideas and creations with Light and focus on the growth that you have been intending upon in your life, whether it be personal, family oriented, professional, global, or all of these areas. Tune into your inner fire in order to enhance your creativity and ignite the spark within the seeds of any projects that you have been meaning to tackle.
This is a most beneficial time to allow yourself to receive guidance in whatever forms feel comfortable to you. Meditation, divination, and journey work are all excellent examples of tools that you can engage in order to receive guidance. Connect to the Leo energy, your inner wildcat, your lion or lioness self. Leo is also significant in accessing your inner courage, and at a time of year where there is so much Light pouring forth, and especially if you are working with this Light intently, please remember that stronger burning Light will burn deeper into that which remains hidden... the shadow aspects. This pertains to those things that you may have placed upon the back burner or swept under the rug, or have simply been unaware of until now. Along with that which is buried deep, once it reaches the level of conscious awareness, emotion may be brought to the surface along with it. Allow this emotion to come. Beauty lies within its release. Allow this to assist you in connecting with the Earth Mother, and the waters with which she supports all of life.
One of the after effects of emotional release, should it occur for you, is a feeling of emptiness, or a void of some sort. This is entirely natural. Now would be the time to plant your new seeds of intention. What do you wish to plant and energize? What do you want to see grow within your own life, and blossom from this point forward? Between now and August 7th, you may wish to intuit these seeds, plant them, water them and observe their growth. Harvest and transformation help to remind us of the wonders of our planet earth. They keep the magic within our hearts alive, seeing how something new and nourishing happens from something so small. But this only happens once that one small thing is planted by us, watered by us, and nurtured by us. Attention needs to be given to these small things, and it is then that we can anticipate growth and change ... transformation and alchemy. Here are some questions to assist in this process:
Giving thanks for, and truly acknowledging, that which you have already received will assist in the process of honoring the Earth Mother. So you can see how it only makes sense that giving thanks before your needs are met will only help to enhance that which you hope to receive. Think of Gratitude as your fertilizer, the feed for your seeds. Once you truly feel this Gratitude take hold within you, move with it. Stretch it, dance it, reach with it, breathe it, sing it. Move it from within, to throughout and around you. This vibration of Gratitude will be that much stronger then. It will anchor much more clearly into your energetic field, and then simply by nature of the business, it will assist you in bringing forth more of that which resides in your heart.
How wonderful is that?
The following article is from: http://globalwaterdances.org/event.shtml
The Event : Global Water Dances Initiative -
"Dancing for Safe Water Everywhere" Global Water Dances is a world event first launched in June 2011. The second global performance is scheduled for June 15, 2013. On a single day, a series of dances centered on water issues are performed beginning in the Western Pacific Rim, then encircling the globe. These dances are also broadcast online.
These dances use dance and music to blend local water issues with the global struggle to ensure safe water for all human beings.
Read about our musicians.
Global Water Dances will start with performances in countries in the Pacific Rim, rolling westward through the time zones. Each group will produce a 4-part site-specific performance; the first two parts local and latter two global.
Global Water Dances is a bold visionary artistic initiative focused on the critical need for safe drinking water. Already today, there are an estimated 5 million deaths per year globally from polluted water. By 2025, over half the world's population will be facing water-related problems. (See Water Issues page for more info.)
Global Water Dances is a model of how to use participatory art-making to raise consciousness about environmental problems and how to bring people together to work on solving these problems. Participants and viewers of Global Water Dances learn about the critical role of humans in protecting water supplies.
The initiators of Global Water Dances are an international network of dance and non-verbal communication experts. In working with local choreographers around the world, we draw on Rudolf Laban and Irmgard Bartenieff's practices with human movement to mirror the universe's dynamic patterns. Using Laban's technique of Movement Choirs, the choreographers create dances which will not only move the participants, but also the observers.
The activities in Global Water Dances will be simple; creating bonds using time, space and rhythm. The dances are professionally choreographed and people of all ages and abilities from the local communities participate. Each dance event reflects in its own way the importance of water locally and in the eco-systems we share world-wide.
Flow, the medium of dance/movement, can connect community, just as water connects people. Communities grew up and were often defined by the water nearby. Movement also provides an embodied practice for community-building and can foster new understandings and behaviors. Through Global Water Dances we want to connect the local to the global community to safeguard that all humans have access to clean drinking water, so that the water flowing through us is sustaining and not harming us. Taking responsibility for, valuing and protecting water can shift people easily into other ways of caring for the planet.
Global Water Dances raises the awareness of participants and observers about the importance of water, and provides a model for empowering local communities to take action. The Global Water Dances event brings local environmental experts and organizations, artists and members of the community together in a process that can build ongoing collaborations.
This is the transcription of an interview with actress Tantoo Cardinal that took place with CTV News in regards to the Idle No More movement. I found Tantoo's words so beautifully raw and striking, and so much further reaching than the INM movement itself, that I took the time to sit down and write it out as I listened. Here it is.
--"We were put here by the Creator just the same as everybody else was...when I talk about a smouldering, those types of battles have been going on all over the country for generations and generations and generations...i think what's happened here is that C-45 really illustrates what gov'ts have been doing to indigenous people, but what's happened this time is it can't be identified as just indigenous. We are the ones that are standing up, because we are the ones that have the contract with creator, with Creative Force.
What's in those treaties, is a responsibility to natural force - for lack of a better term. It's a responsibility to be caretakers of this land. We were here...we were here. The blueprint of how to relate to our Sacred Mother Earth...she is alive. What that means is that we have responsibilities...as she feeds us, and is constantly giving, giving, giving...and always working towards balance, we have responsibilities towards that. But the people that "know everything", who have decided that we are primitive and have no sense of civilization, have decided that we have nothing to offer and that we don't know nothing...
It is that spark that's ignited and says that yes, we have responsibilities to the water, to the land, to life, and no gov't, no corporation, no nobody can stand on our necks and say 'no, that's not right'...the Mayan calendar is over and it re-begins...it starts again. And it's a cycle of truth, and it's a cycle of light...and INM is connecting with the planet...the land...and WATER...if you drink water, you should be paying attention! Don't be distracted. It's not just about treaties.
And besides that, treaties belong to everybody. Everybody that is on this land, was a part of the signing of that treaty...I believe in Peace and Light. That is what we're defending...we're standing in the energy of 'the earth needs healing'. She WILL heal. She will look after business. And that tar sands is a big, cancerous cyst. As men and women we have a certain responsibility, and it's the combination of those energies that make it a whole...It's all gonna be nice, but there is alot of work to do and it's HARD and it's been set for a long time. INM is bringing it all out so it can move and it can start to heal."

I really love this writing, about dance, humanity, the Earth, and that which is soon to come.
Dance To Heal The Earth
By Dee Smith
Whenever you dance, wherever you dance, dance to heal the earth!
Dancing is power. Dancing is prayer. Some say that all is dance. Maybe. Now there's a big dance coming, a dance to heal the earth. If you're reading this, you're probably part of it. You take part whenever you do whatever you do to help heal the earth. When you recycle. When you choose to show love, to fight for justice, to bring healing, to bring out what is good in others. When you avoid cruelty and dishonesty and waste. When you are outraged. When you speak out. When you give. When you consider the generations to come. When you protest to the oppressors and encourage those who feel the cutting edge of injustice. And, of course, when you dance. There is a tree that all the prophets see, and whenever you let your love show, you make the flowers grow.
Soon this dance will be done in a big way, in the old way, on sacred ground. All living things will take part. If you want to, you can take part. No one is twisting your arm. You can stop any time you need to, and start up again whenever you're ready. If you've read this far, you probably know what I'm talking about. You've probably been doing it in one way or another for a good while. Soon will be the time to make no bones about it! Cut loose!
Anytime you dance, anywhere, whether at a party or in church, dance to heal the earth! Let your feet beat a healing rhythm into the earth. Let your feet beat a strengthening rhythm for those who struggle the hardest. Let your feet beat a life-giving rhythm for all peoples, regardless of race or national boundary, regardless of whether we're human or whether we're the trees, the air, the fish, the birds, the buffalo, the bear, the crow. We come out of hiding, we come back from the dead, and we dance, and our dance is a prayer, and our songs and our rhythms and our breath give life.
Is the music they're playing some mindless jingle? Never mind, as long as it's not bad music, and you can dance to the beat! Make your own words, and make the words a prayer. A prayer for the end of exploitation, a prayer for the end of lies, a prayer for healing, for justice, for life. Remember your prayer-song, feed it and let it get strong and pass it along. Dance and pray, whenever you dance, dance to heal the earth.
Have you seen anything? Wear it out! Make it so that all can see what you see! Take a white T-shirt and mark it with your dreams. Is there anything you'd like to tell the world? Take your shirt and mark it with your song! This is the way it has been done, so you can do it too. Use any color except black (there are reasons for that that will become clearer later), and you'll probably find that a loose, pure cotton T is most comfortable for dancing in. Because this is an actual dance, you dance hard, you sing and breathe hard and sweat. Wear it when you plan to go out dancing, to dance to heal the earth.
Some people do this dance while fasting, and dance for several days straight. But even a few minutes of dancing helps, and joins with all the other dancing going on, everywhere on Earth. Not everyone can fast these days. Besides, you never know when you're gonna dance, and you have to eat sometimes! But if you plan to dance, hold off eating till later, or just have a little. It's easier to dance if you don't have a hotdog weighing you down.
Some people say, do not do sacred things where people are drinking and partying. But all the universe is a sacred place. It really doesn't matter what others are doing, you can make a place sacred wherever you are, with your intention and your prayers. Some people use smoke to make a place sacred; a cigarette or incense stick will do fine. You can dance to heal the earth anywhere, even a party or a bar! The earth is everywhere, so you can dance anywhere to heal her. Only one thing. Please hold off drinking or using any other intoxicants till you're done. It works better that way.
The Lie has gone far enough. It spreads and makes everyone sick. Now is the time for this dance to begin. It, too, will spread, and it will bring healing to all. In the beginning, they say, God put a rainbow in the sky, to let us know that Spirit never forgets. Now is the time for us to put a rainbow across the earth, to let God know that we, too, remember.
Dance to heal the earth. Not just when you're dancing, but always. Live the dance, whenever you move, in all you do, dance to heal the earth.
The Time is Nigh. The End is Near. The poles are reversing. The ice caps are melting. The globe is warming. The Mayan Calendar is closing. Jesus is coming. It's the zombie apocalypse. Shift Happens.
By now, we've heard it all, in one form or another. What we choose to believe is our choice. It is hard to deny that something big is going down. Hard to deny, I dare say, by anyone. It is very apparent that the world is in a time of massive shift. No one can truly know what is coming, though many have asserted to know. Yet with the eyes to see and the ears to hear, we feel it in our bones. Our hearts may flutter with excitement, while our chests may clutch in fear. This shift is collective in its nature, and much is being asked of us on a spiritual level, which breathes into all levels of the emotional, mental, and physical self. In both my work and in my workshops, I am encountering much yearning which is offset by much uncertainty. This may lead to seeking or to grasping, or it may lead to its opposite - which I have perceived as a sort of numbness. This numbness allows us to believe that everything is just as it was and nothing is truly "going on". The Earth is just as it was; sacred resources will supply our employment, plump our wallets and fill our fridges; new vehicles and forever new supersmart me-myself-and-i-phones can continue to fly off the product lines onto shelves and into every room of our homes and they will do so comfortably with no repercussions to our health or safety any level.
But this is not Truth. We know this. We know this so deep in our bones, throughout the entire landscape of our hearts and our minds. We know this, and it rages deep into our very cells to the microcosmic degree. And we are now being asked to tell ourselves the Truth, every microcosmic moment of every macrocosmic day. Much is going on, much is happening, and it will not stop anytime soon. We are being asked to harness our energies, and to get to know them intimately. What is that niggling behind my eyebrow? Why is that old injury acting up after all these years? Why is my menstrual cycle kicking in every two weeks? Every two months? Why does my knee give out every time I walk away from so-and-so? What are these childhood memories resurfacing for? Why does this shit keep happening to me?
It is time to ask the deeper questions. It is time again, to believe. To allow ourselves to remember who we are, where we came from, and where we wish to go. We have worked long on ourselves, in order to balance ourselves within this process of Healing and Awakening. It is inevitable, but we can of course put blinders and masks on if we so choose. It is, after all, a free will universe. Dates and numbers are effective with which to look to for a landmark of awareness - but nothing within manifest reality is finite. We are the navigators of our own waters. We do have help, we do have guidance, but we are being asked to wipe the sleep from our eyes. We are being asked to stand our ground and not allow the shades to be drawn any longer. Be the eye of the hurricane, but don't deny the hurricane its existence. This is an option that we do have. Pretending no longer serves anyone, anything, anywhere - and things are moving much too swiftly now for us to look away from ourselves in the mirror.
It is not easy to watch this go down, to see the game unfold, to feel the wounds and the pains as they wash to the surface. But please, let's not allow ourselves to get disheartened. We are doing the work, we must simply remain diligent. Let us also not allow the rockiness of this massive shift to give way to a fearful need to control. This can lead to an insatiable desire for power. And we are being asked to re-define, re-form, and re-claim this very word. The power-hunger-program is one born of a very old paradigm which is now causing large ripples and waves as it moves to the surface in order to be cleared. Let us choose to clear it. True power comes from within our own selves, our own bodies, our soul vibes and essences. Let us be clear. This is not power over - it is power within. Let us be conscientious that we do not grasp outwards for "pieces of power". The stars are within us.
To quote Don Mariano Quispe, of the Q'ero Lineage, "Our inner stars are linked to our souls and with the Kawsay Pacha (living energy world) and with the cosmos, in all of its manifestations. Each of our inner stars holds information about where we came from and where we are going. It carries information about our biological lineages and about our spiritual lineages. It is like a guiding star - or a guiding light: illuminating the pathways of our souls from the past through the present and into the future ... our inner stars can illuminate areas from our past (including past generations) that are infused with hucha (heavy energy), like emotional hurts from our childhood or physical trauma. Our inner stars reveal these areas of hucha to us and support us with cleansing and illuminating our past so that our present and future can be clean and clear and radiant."
This is the time to begin to work with our individual abilities, gifts, passions, and "keys". It is not necessary that we 'go' anywhere. Let us thrive well in our places, and the temples of our bodies. Our information and tools are right here inside of us. We brought them with us when we came into this world. Let us restore them to their original intended divinity. As the old adage goes, the only constant we can count on, is that there will be change.
Let us also not give way to the heavy arms of hopelessness. We are revisiting that which we have allowed, over time, to seep in. Some old programs and thought patterns have been triggered into release on their own terms and we have had to sit tight for the ride. Some of the old has taken a lot of work, on an individual basis, in such a way that we have been able to manage the releases and their effects on our personal timing and in some cases, on our own terms. Now we are being asked to truly feel the beauty and magic of working as a cohesive and interwoven collective. It would serve us well to keep driving the points of our deepest desires home. That which we wish to see happen for our families, our communities, our homelands. Do not give up hope. Let us place our signatures on those pieces of paper. And let us sign them, over and over again, until we feel that our voices are heard and that we, ourselves, believe us.
It is no secret that across humanity's rich history, people have been drawn rather powerfully to gemstones and crystals. And it is also no secret that these amazing stone beings are among the most beloved treasures of the Earth herself.
It is more than just their beauty that attracts people to them - it is the radiant Life Force that these stones and crystals contain within them to which people are instinctively drawn.
Crystals, and particularly Quartz, may help one to become more balanced. The more balanced one is, the more Life Force can flow freely through them. Not only can stones and crystals contain Life Force, but they can also transform it into gemstone energy.
This increased flow of energy will create even greater balance, which in turn brings more Life Force to the individual, resulting in less room for disease . . . it is a beautiful alchemic cycle of healing. As stones and crystals loosen stuck energies and movement is freed, this additional energy nourishes, balances, and aligns the inner aspects of mind, memory, and emotions.
My approach to Crystal Healing is one of developing an intimate relationship with the stones, in order to tune in to the consciousness of the stone and work with it more effectively. Crystals and stones are very powerful teachers and energy oscillators and need to be worked with consciously and lovingly.
Using these teachers as our examples, we can see that it is possible for form to manifest Light, for every atom to oscillate at a common frequency, and for every molecule to order itself into perfect alignment. Thusly, it is possible for us to align every fiber of our bodies to this common source.
Each session is unique to the individual. Along with intuitive guidance, stones and crystals are selected according to size, shape, colour and mineral content. These healings may have you develop or build upon your own heart-based intuition, inner knowing, and relationship with stones, heightening awareness and personal healing abilities.
Welcome! Thank you for visiting my blog space. In this place, I will share writings of my own, along with other events and musings from the world of Movement Medicine, Dance Therapy, Yoga and Shamanic Healing.
