Springtime Beauty for Your Soul

?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????You cannot fully know yourself through the thinking mind alone. In the depths of your soul you are subtle essence, difficult to grasp and always changing. When your conscious mind and your pure essence intersect, it is always a surprise. It can feel like a vast expansive opening where you feel the peace and joy of the moment in singular awareness.

To lure your essence into your conscious awareness, takes patience, solitude and compelling quiet. This aspect of your true self often surfaces when you are surrounded by natural beauty. In the forest, a garden, along the seashore, a lake, river or desert, there is an intoxicating  perfume that entices the soul.

Be alone in nature, look at the sky, breathe in the energy of nature and your soul will emerge. If you cannot be outdoors in natural beauty, fresh flowers, a water fountain, a garden, the starry sky or the view outside of a window can also have the same effect. Wherever you are, just be. Give yourself time without any expectations. Be in the moment and whatever your experience is, accept it. Feel the beauty of nature, drink it in and absorb it into your mind, body and spirit.

Your soulful essence may only emerge for a scant moment. Then quickly submerge once again, to hide out underneath your thoughts and feelings. But it is there. You may feel it in a variety of ways. It can be a sudden awareness of your connectedness with all of life. You may become aware that everything is in divine order. Your worries, stress and fears may take flight and dissolve. The light of who you are, fills you.  Maybe just for a slight small moment, you feel and know the power that resides within you.

If you are fortunate enough to experience your truth in this way. Stay in this awareness for as long as possible. It is a sacred and precious awareness that can be all too fleeting. Soon your soul seems to recede, but the clear awareness of its light will stay with you. Tuck it into your heart and keep it close. Even though you may no longer be consciously aware of  this crystal clear emergence, it is still with you. Behind your thoughts and feelings and emotions, the pure you is present, observing, inspiring and offering love and wisdom.

After the hurricane….the visiting owl

       If you read my previous post you know that my intent during Hurricane Irene was to release my negativity, fear, grief, anything that I no longer needed into her powerful frenzy. I imagined the winds swooping down into me and lifting away all the old baggage that has been heavy in my body, mind and soul. Little did I know at the time how effective my request would be. During the onset of the storms arrival and into the next day as it lingered on, I felt the winds of change within me.

I guess the old saying “be careful what you ask for”, applies . Releasing emotional energy means feeling emotional energy and letting it go. I felt the fear, grief, confusion, negativity and more, much more than I had anticipated. And like most of the people who were affected by the hurricane I was still feeling it a few days later. The actual physical damage from the storm was minimal. I had several large branches fall and I lost power for a short time. For  me, it was the inner shifting that was more dramatic.

One evening a couple of days after the hurricane and feeling somewhat alone in my journey of cleansing, I looked out into my backyard and saw an owl peacefully sitting above my deck. I watched him for a while and he seemed to watch me. As darkness descended he continued to sit. The next night and then the next night after on the same branch in the same spot, my owl came for a visit. I appreciated his company and felt somehow acknowledged in my dance with Irene. He seemed to me the perfect compliment to the storm’s recent activity. Stoic, silent, penetrating and barely ruffling his wings even in response to my barking dogs, his presence spoke of centering and peace. Just as with the storm, my intent is to align and soak in his vibration and come this kind of pure presence.

Powerful Hurricane == Powerful Change

     It is Friday Aug. 26th, 2011 and hurricane Irene is scheduled to pay NC a visit in about twenty four hours. Although the course that she is on will not directly impact me, we will most likely get some wind and rain. I have been through a few hurricanes here in NC. The most dramatic of which was, Floyd who caused major damage on my house and left me without power for almost two weeks.

As I contemplated Irene’s upcoming visit yesterday it occurred to me to shift my perspective on how I can view what is to come. I thought wouldn’t it be interesting if I felt fortunate for this storm instead of nervous and anxious. What if, those of us along the East Coast were being given the opportunity to release and let go of all that we no longer need. I could use her force to blow into the heavens all of my negativity, anger, fear, anything and everything that is impeding my ability to love self and others. She could be a powerful ally in wiping the slate clean. I need a fresh start. I have been though a bit emotionally in the past few years and I want my heart to be swept clean. What better help then a category 3 or 4 hurricane.

My intent is to churn up within me all that no longer serves me and with Irene’s help let it all go.

Of course there will be damage and fear, pain and perhaps some will be literally taken away in her winds. I send love to those who suffer in any way and ask Irene to be kind in her desire to clear the slate.

Happy (Almost) Rapture

May 21, 2011 came and went and to me knowledge no one was raptured into heaven. Over the years there have been several prophesied end of times, earthly disasters, earth changes and cataclysmic events that have not occurred. Still, many people and psychic and religious channels still herald the coming of dire and immense changes that will forever alter our day to day existence. To this I would like to add my two cents. With the help of my intuitive guidance, I am told that the nature of the earth is of course change, we all know this. But the earth blueprint and karma for change is seldom by human terms “overnight”. Instead we earthlings have the unique ability through our developed sciences, computer generated information and basic physical know-how to foresee the inevitable results of our actions. Now this is a very cool thing. As someone who makes her living as a professional intuitive, I know that there are many things beyond the physical that we must pay attention to and become aware of, for our benefit and others. But I will also humbly tell you that we know our future and we are not paying attention to it. We know that the collective choices that we are making will adversely affect our beloved earth, our neighbors, our children and ourselves. What I and my kindly guides can add to the mix is to help you to become aware that there is a legion of help in the spiritual celestial and earthly realms. The human solution machine works slowly and not without profit, power and financial gain. The spirit realm is not really interested in such gain.

 What can you do to help? Greet the morning with an open heart, invoke your most beloved divine and spiritual ally, God, Goddess, Divine Spirit whoever or whatever you most connect with. Be a receptacle for benevolent love and wisdom to flow into the world. Where you are today, whoever you encounter, whatever you do, know that this is where you are most needed. Love translates into pure energy, be the counterforce to the century’s long negative campaign of misguided attempts to control and dominate the earth and one another.  Choose to act in ways that respect yourself and others. Be mindful of the heart numbing bizarre world of consumer frenzy that wants you to believe at only by consuming, buying big and praising the popular will happiness come your way. Don’t believe it for a moment and don’t give your power away.
