A Tribute

Where the ivy grew,
Rosemary was there. Always, forever faithful!
Bound in grace. Eternal in love and loyalty the ivy grew so that Rosemary would be forever anew.
Rosemary is here,
where the ivy lay. Swing the thurible! Righteously wafting upwards,
An unfaltering faith! Never forgotten, ivy will cling near so that Rosemary holds dear to the hearts left to praise.
Where the ivy grows,
Rosemary shall be found. Protecting, encircling with strong arms. Have not fear! She beckons you near
Her healing voice, her heart unwavering!
In her wisdom all shall be betrothed!

Awaken! Arise!

img_2017-02-01_23-36-46

Dear flesh of my flesh, blood of my blood. I love you as I do the infinite night, and as the horizon touches the first break of dawn! oh it pains me how I love you so!

I bind my hands, as the urge to shake you into the awakening of greatness  dwelling within you overcomes me! You exist within  me; I within you!

And yet, I am patient,

I await your return.

I am gentle,

thus continue to guide the way.

I am love,

and I envelope you!

From my womb you come forth. My labor, a joyous celebration of that which you will become: Full of potential, filled with possibilities!

As you grow, quickening in your passion; the flames of creation burning bright,know that I am erected within you. In your womb, I now am found.

Soon, very soon your heart will beat rhythmically with mine.

Your voice, mingled with mine.

Your words, resounding with mine!

And when you have reached the apex of your awakening, the activation of mine will thus be complete.

This is your purpose. The path of which you must walk. And all will be as it once was.

Balanced. In perfect love, and i perfect trust!

Reading from the deck Divination of The Ancients :

Psychometry:
As our spiritual vibrations continue to rise, your path may seem to have become more lonely. Thing are once again changing, and this time, more rapidly. The things that we loved no longer hold our interest. Certain people in our lives as well as activities we once loved and enjoyed begin to drift further away. We are recalibrating. Old desires dissolve and we find ourselves becoming more sensitive.  This sensitivity is noticed with certain foods, beverages and environments we expose ourselves to. Let go of the urge to repress the need to let them go. Be gentle with yourself as you are evolving.
Dreams:
Be observant of your dreams as they hold the answers that you seek. Your guides as well as deceased loved ones have things to share with you through stories that may be elaborate in design. Through the process of Dream Incubation, planting intentions of dreaming of a specific topic will aid in the manipulation of the dreamed experience and the manipulation of  imagry in order to dream your dreams awake.
Dice:
Life is a gamble. The question that has been in the forefront concerning a certain area in your life has been “should I stay, or should I go?”
It is up to you to make the decision whether or not the risk is worth it, and this must be based on your intuitive feelings…. Your inner compass. This is not the time to be “on the fence” lol.
To stay in a situation where it is not beneficial for your growth… Nor is it a time to throw in the towel if you have placed a lot of time and energy before reaping the rewards.

Improving the Moment using Minfulness Techniques

mind·ful·ness
ˈmīn(d)f(ə)lnəs/
noun
  1. the quality or state of being conscious or aware of something.

    I used to dislike doing the dishes. In our modern age, we have taken full advantage of a machine that has practically eradicated the need to irritate our hand by voluntarily placing them in a sink filled with soapy water for any length of time. But one day, as machines do my dish washer was in need of repair, and I was in a state of utter irriversable…despair. Or so it felt at the time. But the dishes had to get done and well, I couldn’t twitch my nose and have them disappear. And so, I sucked it up, put on my big girl pants and dish gloves to tackle a sink full of the dirty buggers.
    The more I begrudge, and sucked, the worse things became. I decided to surrender to the suds! Believe it or not, this was my wake-up call to letting go. I decided to put my headphones in a turn up the tunestairs. You know what they say about music taming the savage beast. My mind began to settle, and to make this happy ending come sooner than later, I found that as I held each dish in my hand while focusing on details, the calmer I became and the quieter my mind got. I was there, in the moment, mindful with each dish that I cleaned. I enjoyed it so that
    I decided to present the topic of mindfulness at the next Mind, Body, Spirit meeting speaking on treating dish washing as a meditation.
    And so my journey of mindfulness was in full swing where I included exercises throughout my day with the objective to remain centered. This led me to using mindfulness techniques with my clients. I would like to share one with you now:
    This technique is known as  Mindful Observation
    The exercise is simple, yet incredibly powerful. It is designed to connect us with the beauty of your environment. We oftentimes   miss this as we are rushing around in a frantic to complete our daily tasks, or as we’re  headed to work. So, what do you do?
    Choose a natural object from within your immediate environment and focus on watching it for a minute or two. This could be a flower or an insect, or even the clouds or the moon.
    Don’t do anything except notice the thing you are looking at. Simply relax into a peaceful state as long as your concentration allows. Look at it as if you are seeing it for the first time. Visually explore every aspect of its formation. Allow yourself to be engulfed  by its presence. Allow yourself to connect with its energy and its role and purpose in the natural world.
    After completion, notice how you feel. Are you less agitated? More calmer? Scan your body for any signs of tension and repeat the exercise if necessary. The exercise below is also a wonderful way to bring you into the present moment.

Fire Goddess Dance With Me

by Joyce Bergkotte

Fire Goddess dance with me
Awaken me in early sunlight
New moon reflecting inner grace
Come, tell me about new promises

Fire Goddess dance with me
Touch me with your licking flames
Hearthfire warm this winterbody
Oh, Earth come back to life again

Fire Goddess dance with me
Inspire me with swan winged whispers
Creation running wildly through me
New born beauty strong and free

Fire Goddess dance with me
Radiate your sacred sparks
Light the fire of my Spirit
Your snake kiss penetrates my soul

Fire Goddess dance with me
Guide me in my shaman nature
Divine healing from earth and heaven
Wolf cries out in moonlit nights

Fire Goddess dance with me
Take me into your dazzling flames
Beautiful muse with fiery arrow
Serpent rising in my body

Fire Goddess dance with me
Fire Goddess dream with me
Fire Goddess dance with me
Fire Goddess….. be me!

Once In a Wild Moon (Pt.2: Oh The Surprises You Will Know!)

1:11 am (The time is ripe!)

If you take heed to the gentle nudges of the Ancestors, oh the surprises you will know! Well, the nudges are oftentimes a loving push after gentleness fails, but it’s only to shake you awake, and cause you to shake the sleepiness from your EYE !

Slumbertime is over dear one! It’s time to rise and shine to the greatness that is you!

Not this you that you have been parading around, hoping that no one takes the time to stop to question what you’re hiding from. I’m talking about the you that has come here to get this party started. The you who is following the beat of your own drum, even if you’re not too sure about the rhythm.

I spent my New Years Eve in the comfort of my home. Preparing the traditional meal, clearing the energy , and washing my floors in the ways of those long before me. I then focused my energy on the cards and what would be in store: The beginnings of a New Year. Let me just say, when I do the work, and surrender to the guidance of The Ancestors, a lot happens within me.I can tell how much has happened the following morning upon waking by the level of detoxing that I experienced. (Many blessings to have had the opportunity to rest completely today doing minimal activities)!

I have been wanting to consult the cards for a couple of days now (New Moon to be exact). I reiterate, “I” have been wanting. I was INSTRUCTED to wait.

At precisely 3:33 am 1/01/2017 the Ancient Ones said, “The time is now”.

20170101_033646

“And the way will be made for those who remain diligent” (Deck used: Divination of The Ancients, and Caroline Myss Archetype cards)

Do you remember why you came?

The New Moon in Capricorn was one of splendor and we’re still riding the energetic wave! Were you able to connect on a cellular level? Did you communicate in the language of light?  although Mercury is having his way on things in the outer realm, this is a time of connecting inwardly. Communication with self on what tools are needed to fulfill the role you are to play on the grande scheme of things. The energy of hibernation in order to heal, reaccess, consult. Pay homage to the planet that rules communication, and give yourself well-earned time for re-balancing your energies. Patience is key on our last leg of this retrograde.

And Now, the message:

Good luck and fortune awaits you as you embark upon this new year. The Ancients have spoken and their voice is strong and clear! Do not be afriad of claiming your good luck with both hands, for it is your divine birthrite. By continuing to remain positive, you will remain in a position where the seeds planted (intentions) will bring forth the desires that you have worked hard for. In keeping in alignment with the higher vibrations, this will aid in negating negativity of any kind for now is not the time to give into them. This includes doubting yourself, being in the company of those not suppotive of your dreams, and situations which are mentally draining. Your true purpose is of utmost important. You are supported at this time in accomplishing your mission. Some of you may have began to have inner stirrings that are guiding you in ways that may sometimes baffle you. This is a sign that it is time to fulfill your sacred contract. {In part one, reference was made to the dance between organisms. Although the tone was one of a sexual nature, creation is just that…..sexually charged with the energy to manifest!).  Who or what has appeared in your life that plays the part of the muse? How does it feel? *grins*   Let the chart of your birth be your roadmap. Focus and precision are necessary to draw your blessings to you. Organization is a critical aspect in your planning. Let your environment be in alignment with the highest level of vibration. Rid yourself of all baggage. make an account of all profits and losses. You may be tempted to let your spirit allow you to back down from challenges. Remain steadfast in your decisions made from the heart and meet these challenges head on. Ask for guidance/help from The Ancesors, Ascended Masters who resonate with your purpose, as well as from the Angelic Realm. Strength, courage, and success are yours! 

More insight on the Bully Card:

       The archetype of the Bully manifests the core truth that the spirit is always stronger than the body. Symbolically, our physical bodies can “bully” our spirits with any number of reasons why we should back down from our challenges, which appear to overwhelm us by their size and shape. Consider whether on your life path you confront one experience and relationship after another that appears to have more power than you and ultimately leads you to ask, “Will I stand up to this challenge?” People are often called to take on bullies for the sake of others, as David did Goliath, and this is another criterion of your connection to this archetype. Conventional wisdom holds that underneath a bully is a coward trying to keep others from discovering his true identity. Symbolically, the Coward within must stand up to being bullied by his own inner fears, which is the path to empowerment through these two archetypes.
