Of Inner Fire & Waters Burning

“What is this life flowing in our bodies like fire? What is it? Life is like a hot iron. Ready to pour. Choose the mold and life will burn it.” ~ Mahabharata

The Season Of Renewal

Listen.
Listen to what is true.
Listen to the beat of your own Sacred Heart.
Remember it. Take refuge there.

Renewal comes in cycles.

As Spring approaches we are given the opportunity to come out from under Winter’s cloak, shake off the quiet slumber and choose again. Choose again the direction that our beating Sacred Heart whispers to us to follow. Listen.

Imprinting The Sacred

Flower of Life carving

This past Moon cycle has spoken to me about the importance of grounding and rooting ourselves. Through the Chaos of this unpredictable human experience we can pause and befriend any moment. Belonging to the present and inhabiting ourselves fully. Rumi’s words are close to my heart: “So come, return to the root of the root of your own self.”

This mindful art form of carving my own stamps has been a great way of slowing things down and really bringing my focus on what I’m doing in the moment. I’ve received some interest from others to purchase my hand carved stamp prints and so I’ve created an etsy listing for those interested. This first pack contains prints of my Flower of Life, Kali Ma, and Hand Eye stamps.

As the summer begins to wane, I’m taking this time to slow down and listen with my other eyes and ears.

“Listen to the hidden sounds
Use your other ears.
See the celestial sights
Use your other eyes.
Perceive what cannot be measured by the ordinary senses.”
~ Alberto Villoldo

Stepping Into The Fire

Kali Ma by Jenn Grosso

Our Lady of Light
Great Mother of Fire
Goddess of the Flame
Liberate us from ever-deeper layers of the lower-self.
Burn away what hinders us on our journey.
Om Mata Kali, Sri Ma Sri Ma.

“I am immersed in the flame –
The flame of time,
The flame of love,
The flame of life.
The universal fire flows through me.”
~ The Radiance Sutras, Yukti Verse 29
