Birthing  Easy
October 14, 2012
As we approach and enter this time in humanities evolution, the cosmos and prophecies of potent spiritual cultures say that we are stepping into our fullest potential of who we are to become. All that we aspire to be and want to bring to our children, our communities and the world is happening now. This is the time when what no longer serves us must be let go. For if not, our true essence of who we are that is emerging with great force to LIVE, will emerge with more discomfort.

Sometimes I think I may have taken on more than I can handle and get tired of being part of the “strong and inspiring” dream club. Doing life my way and out of the box only to follow my heart’s desires and Spirits calling ***breathe*** is the only way I continue to find the peace within.

How do we find the endurance that called us to the dream we are meant to meet?

Let us make it easy on ourselves. Do our work to LET IT GO. Walk into nature and appreciate the beauty of life. Seek support from someone who may simply hold your head on their shoulder and let you cry. Light a candle and take a bath. Do something wonderful for ourselves!!!
Seek the silence between the beats and pray, meditate, walk and listen for the stillness.

XI Strength

What a glorious life I lead.

(“I feel scared”)

Waking to what seems to perpetual sunny days.

(“I don’t want to get out of bed”)

Enjoying the freedom the kitties have in this expansive desert .

(“Next life time, I’m going to be a cat”)

Barefoot on the land.

(**sigh**)

Sharing the love of community…..building with the Earth….shaping our Dreams into form.

(“Sometimes I just need my own time and space”)

Talking circle before we begin our day ignites transparency to hold me accountable.

(“Overwhelm, fear…emotional purging”)

Stone of Gratitude passed around the circle.

(“Thank you, thank you, thank you!”)

Tears, laughter.

(“The beauty of Talking Circle”)

Where are my shoes?

(“funny crew”)

Where is my hat?

(“funny, funny crew!”)

I draw a card from the MotherPeace deck:  XI Strength

(“Lady of the Beast, she who tames through sheer spritual force.”)

Twins are Born

July 7, 2010

     During a week-long workshop at Cal Earth,  growth and insight emerged through pangs of emotional movements.  My partner and I found ourselves in the midst of tension as we presented our points of view about how we were communicating.  Ok….REALLY…..We were arguing.  Defensive/Offensive conversations flew around our field just like the clothes in the dryer at the laundromat.   Yes, we WERE actually at the laundromat.
 
     Eventually we found peace and resolution and returned to the workshop to begin a project with the group.  My partner went ahead as I lagged for some unknown reason.  I took the moments of solitude to meditate briefly to be awaken by a call from my medicine bag.  Corn Meal…”Take the corn meal!”  I checked my bag and  it was wet. Upon further investigation, my small bottle of collected and blessed Lightening Water had let loose in my bag and saturated most of its contents.
 
     I pondered briefly of the mornings events with my partner, set out the contents of my bag to dry and returned to the group with corn meal in my pocket.   The group had begun to build a wall with Earth and I gave offering to dig.
 
     Then just a few moments after my arrival back to the group a pvc line for water burst through  Mama Earth just like the water breaks in a swollen womb before a birth. 
 
     A week later, these twins were born.
