Moving Into The Solstice Light

This soon-to-be Solstice Sun has been simmering underneath my skin. Reminding me, that like the Moon, cycles wax and wane. After the dip into the Darkness, there is always the elevation into the Light.

Although on different timelines, frequencies and planes, we all have our own cycles. To be able to listen deeply and tune into them, is to truly know oneself.

After what has felt like forever in the Dark, my own cycle is moving me into the Light. I’ve finally made available once again some of my past mini zines as well as my newest illustrated mini zine “Scattered Teeth Like Breadcrumbs”. You can find them in my Perilsoftheliving Etsy shop.

Many Solstice Blessings!
May the Light shine brightly in your Heart,
through all your cycles and seasons.

Giving Back What Isn’t Ours To Carry

I’ve come to the Rich Waters.
To the Mother Womb of depths;
to return something that was not mine to carry.

I’ve climbed to the Windy Peaks.
To Father Sky’s vast expanse;
to release something that was not mine to carry.

I’ve pressed my face to the Dark Earth.
To the fecund under belly;
to bury something that was not mine to carry.

This was never mine to carry,
and so I let it go back into the World.

Rebuilding Altars

Dedicating them to The Great Mother:

To the Dark Goddesses,
to the Inner Flame of Re-Creation,
to standing unapologetically in Truth.

In Truth.

Let the rest burn away.

All That We Can Sense But Cannot See

18157963_10155120780332457_2188883547547425626_n

It can be so simple; a sound made sacred, a lingering fragrance observed, a few words strung together in Prayer.

Ritual is when time is held still, for a moment, and our attention is turned to what is right in front of us, to what we are offering right now beyond ourselves.

Allowing a natural exchange with the breath, with stillness, and with what we can only sense but often cannot see.

Every Day Is Earth Day

We can ALL be Earth Protectors, in small and big ways.

It doesn’t have to be complicated. If we always keep this beautiful green and blue Planet in our Hearts, if we always keep ALL of this Planet’s inhabitants in our Hearts, and if we remain Thankful for all that this Planet give to us to sustain us every day, our whole Life then becomes a Prayer to Mama Gaia, to Mother Earth, to Pachamama. Wouldn’t then every action be seen through this lens and better choices to support this Planet and all it’s Eco Systems be made?

It can be simple. It can be as simple as replacing little things here and there and slowly ingraining this way of thinking into our everyday. Making sustainable choices that are small but will have a big impact:

Do you buy plastic straws? Stop purchasing them and invest in a few reusable stainless steel straws instead.

Do you buy plastic water bottles? Stop purchasing them and invest in a good reusable water bottle. The market is saturated with all kinds of great reusable water bottles made from stainless steal, ceramic or glass.

Do you use and take the plastic bag option when buying goods? Bring your own cloth bags instead. You might forget sometimes, but as you keep remembering it becomes a habit. I always keep several cloth bags in the trunk of my car and one in my purse. It becomes second nature to have reusable bags with you.

These plastics and all plastics are the cause of the plastic trash epidemic that is overwhelming landfills, our Oceans and waterways, and in the bellies of the Water inhabitants literally choking the life out of them.

We can choose better, because EARTH DAY is EVERY DAY.

These are just a few suggestions to start changing the way we interact with this Earth. There are SO MANY more actions that can be taken.

This Planet deserves our efforts, because without it there is no Life for us to live.

Found Freedoms of the Heart

An April Full Moon blessing for the new beginnings of Spring and found freedoms of the Heart.

For Light and Darkness:
“Light cannot see inside things.
That is what the dark is for:
Minding the interior,
Nurturing the draw of growth
Through places where death
In its own way turns to Life.”

For Shifting Seasons:
“The tight solitude of a seed,
Allowing it time
To shed the grip of former form
And give way to a deeper generosity
that will one day send it forth,
A tree into springtime,
May all that holds you
Fall from its hungry ledge
Into the fecund surge of your Heart.”

~John O’Donohue in “Bless the Space Between Us”

Listen To The Stones

17201144_10154964764962457_5436197804155052076_n

The Stones they sing to me
retelling of tales
as old as time itself.

The Wind it whispers to me
and I can hear all the
spoken hymns and prayers.

The Water it soothes me
comforting me with
depths beyond the surface.

The Earth she holds me
reminding me of
the solid nature of
this human experience.
