This year, FullMoon and Equinox fall almost on the same date. It is special, and extra strong.
As the Moon reaches its apex, it begins to vain, while the Equinox expresses a moment of Balance, before the turning point. Days and Light from now on will diminish more and more, until next Winter Solstice, where the Wheel will turn again.
The Powers of Introspection, Reflection, Intuition, Maturity, and the Wisdom that from this mix is created (Earth, the West, in my understanding), are here connected to the Inner Sensitive and Strong Light, and the Healing Power of the Moon.
We get ready. We stop and look. We clear. We consider, and reconsider. We allow both our Fragility and our Strenght to show their lessons. We collect our Fruitful Seeds, peacefully discard the rest, and look at our Fruits (our “results”).
We reconnect to Earth, and to ourselves, in Clarity and Compassion, in Forgiveness. We allow Healing to grow.
We Bless and Pray for All, in Gratitude.
Let us celebrate Sun, Moon, Earth, ourselves and our Life.
… how come I only talk “Nature” and “Human things” here, not about Visions or Spirit talk.
I may have said it already,but some ask. So I will explain again.
Visions and Spirit talks are private matter in my opinion, and I share them occasionally with who it is needed to be shared with, or in my teachings training, or at times at workshops and ceremonies, when I feel “allowed to”.
I feel they are very intimate stories, secret stories, that have to be respected as such. They could be used to “make my ego grow”, to impress, to gain power on you, to “buy” you, to show how “amazing I am”…
No, no! There are teachings which stay “inside”, and teaching which “can be shared”, and so it is with me.
Though, when I had to write my book, many stories were “released”, but it was hard to do…
And, most stories are so specific and special, that another person may judge them either to be very “important” or very “humble”… and some of them are, but to the one who receives them, they are just blessings, and when we receive them, our Souls are enriched. They are not “to be sold” in any ways.
Learning techniques, in the digital era, plenty, everywhere, so that I do not write about either…
Illumination, Extatic moments, Nothingness, Fullness, Rapture, Visions are private and Sacred, and to be kept and respected as such.
This is the explanation, and my way. Others may have other ways, and believe different. Everyone is right, if they are honest with what they say and do.
Hope you understand.
Pieces of my Soul as gifts? All the photographs here on the homesite are mine, to share …
Lately, inspired by a friend, I started to “recollect” and write down my “older” (in time) shamanic experiences.
Most of them will remain “private”, and some I feel I can share.
This one belongs to 2000, when I travelled to Peru.
I was of course visiting the sacred site of Machu Picchu, the day after reaching it from the Inca trail (three days walk, up first, and down after, the picture on my front page here on the homepage, belongs to the path going down through the jungle).
So, I was so extremely lucky that the weather was uncertain, and not so many visitors…
Among other places, I reached the “World’s center” up up, a very particular sacred stone you may have seen in photos from there. It was raining lightly, and I was alone. Spectacular view.
Respectfully, and very carefully, I sat by the Stone, and contacted it. I closed my eyes, prayed for the World, and asked for a “private message” about my work (if, if…)
At the moment I opened my eyes again, the Rainbow appeared, and everything stood still.
“All Colors, All Colors” the Rainbow’s message was.
I stayed in the silent Bliss of the moment, then thanked, and moved on. That was it.
I felt very honored, and deeply thankful. I understood the message.
All Colors were us, the People, all kinds, all colors, all races, all characters and all beliefs. All One, all Sacred.
That was what I had to deal with.
I was on the “right” path!
Before, and, even more, after, I try to honor and practice this teaching both in my Life and in my work, even it is not always easy.
And when my Patience is “shaken”, I always remember the Rainbow.
At times, when I am lucky, I find good messages all over. This one I have had for a long long time on my table, and I am reading it every day. Who or where it came from, I do not remember, maybe Miguel Ruiz, maybe Byron Katie, maybe someone else…
Anyway, I like to share it with you, for inspiration and reflection. My little paper says:
…the “little being” was lying there, violet monkey with a hand on its heart! And the other arm opened to welcome… And not only…Shall we take it as an omen from the Spirit world? I do! 🙂 It was on a shaman walk…
Let’s call our Friends and hear how they are! And maybe have some fun if possible! Smiling and laughing, best Medicine!
Our moment now is strange and tough, when we follow the news in our World. Many things are “on the balance”, and it can tip in different ways.
A few “things” are challenging Us from every side, and sure You know what I am talking about.
The “Limbo” state is changing into a more “fearful” one, for many of Us, regarding corona, one of the “few things”.
If We choose to keep Earth connection (connection to Our Bodies, Our Love, Our Reality, and what we need and love to do), and take care of each other (awake, aware and respectful), at least we will not get “too” lost, fearful, angry or depressed, (which even may “invite” sickness also, some of Us believe). We know, now We “have to” do.
We are Living in a weird movie, We got to deal with it, of course, and We will. Humans are good to adapt, so We do, We adapt, and survive.
“Living” may be different than “surviving”. How do We live with all this? We learn how.
Still…”the movie” is a movie, and making room between Us and “the movie” may be healthy, and lighter.
“The movie” was there before this movie, it just maybe did not feel so dramatic and scary, We were not “completely involved”. Now We are.
Nature was there before, and it is now. More and more of Us are starting to “use” Nature now, let it be a Friendship, and not “just use”, let it be that, what the Shamans, and many others always have told…
Let it be that We heal by coming closer to Earth. Let it be that We learn. Let it be that We open.
Let it be that We listen, that We look, that We feel.
Scary, a little. Possibility, new? Maybe.
We keep standing, and do Our Best.
We are Grateful for all that is, and all We have, and create positive Energy around Ourselves.
We all know how to move, and how to stop. We all know, if We look, what is “right”.
If We believe We can help by Healing, or Prayer, let Us do.
And why I am telling this? To remind You, and Me to Trust.
We were working in a group the other evening, by a shelter.
Little trees, and Fields around us. Evening coming.
The theme “Peace (and Balance)”. It was raining quietly, Light slowly disappearing, Colors still strong.
I like to share with you what an Oak and a Birch told me. I have received, through the years, a few deep and important messages from Trees. They are benevolent Beings, caring for us People.
This Oak was a young one, dancing in two trunks, interwining. It called me, so I had to come very close.
And it said that Peace is like a Forest. There is Room for Anyone who cares and wishes Living there, Room for All, small and big, magnificent and humble.
As long as there is Room for All, and each Being have its own Space to Live and express its Life and itself, there is Peace and Balance.
Then, it showed me Spaces and Lines, like in Sacred Geometry, to notice.
And there was an area with Trees planted “in order” by Us, Human Beings, too.
It further said that “another kind of order” was necessary too, in some cases.
When I moved away, after thanking the Oak, I was guided to walk to a Birch.
The Birch was a young one also.
Its Trunk had been cut by someone’s knife?, and it looked like a “bad cut”, on one side, but if I removed my own “emotional judgement”, I could see the weird “Beauty” of the cut by its Color, and “accept it” somehow.
The Birch did not seem to “suffer”, and that I was happy for.
It said that “At times there may be some Pain involved in obtaining Peace and Balance”.
But Pain can be considered different than we usually do, maybe?
Thank you, dear Birch.
These messages were given to Me, and now to You, to reflect upon.
Thanx to You Trees for inspiration.
