We have reached the peak of the summer sunlight here in the northern hemisphere. It’s the highest point of the sun, the longest day, the most intense period of solar energy. The light — at this pivotal time on the planet — is bringing us a greater awareness of our interconnectedness with each other and all of life. All that was previously hidden, suppressed, or denied is now clearly seen in the light. The truth of who we are as human beings is rising. During this light-infused re-patterning we may feel overwhelmed, disoriented, ungrounded or burnt-out. It’s an extremely intense time on our beloved Gaia. But we must stay the course and clearly look at what is blocking humanity from true freedom, peace and unity. We must look at the ugly and wounded parts of ourselves and the collective — the distorted & wounded patterns of racism, greed, self-serving interests, abuse of power, violence, superiority, disrespect of life... These aspects have come to the forefront of our collective awareness now to be healed and cleared. As we watch these old patterns rear their ugly heads we must remember that new patterns and ways of being will replace them — patterns of wholeness, unity, respect, love of the Earth, true freedom, beauty, harmony and truth. But we must consciously choose to step into and embody these new energies. As all unfolds in perfect timing the plants bring their gifts into our awareness just as we most need them. St. John’s Wort, with its vivid sun-yellow flowers, blooms in sync with the longest days. Its spirit reminds us that the shadow aspects of the world can be cleared by keeping in tune with our own inner sun, our own inner heart’s light. This is the light that will liberate us and return us home.

A basket of roses for all the heartbreak, all the grief, all the suffering of this world. It’s too much for the mind to comprehend. I’m learning to surrender to the piercing of the heart — to surrender to heartache and heartbreak as teachers. And ultimately these teachers will lead us to greater compassion and love — for ourselves and for all beings. In this very human condition, amongst the chaos of a broken world there is still so much beauty and light. So much to live for, so much to offer to others. Only the heart knows the way forward now. We must simply listen.
Sweet Beltane blessings to you and yours. ✨🍃 May this day and this season unfold in peace for us all. Despite the calamities of the human world the plant, animal and more-than-human worlds go on — reminding us of the enduring beauty, generous spirit, and unifying truth of the natural world. #beltane #obod
The mind wishes to know all — to seek, to ponder, to think, to analyze, to inquire, to learn. This is the job of the mind. But it is only the immense wisdom of the heart that can truly know the scope of All. The All is a mystery to the mind. The body senses, the mind interprets, the heart knows. -musings from my journal-
What has helped me to no end during this time is to acknowledge my human fears and all the collective sufferings, and then to tap into that deeper/truer/higher part of my being that is untouched by it all. We all have this part within us -- a wise, calm, extremely loving part of our Selves that accepts whatever is unfolding in the moment. This part accepts what is. What follows is one of the messages meant for us all as I tapped into this higher Self -- the Self we are all connected to -- and I'd like to share it with you in case it's helpful as we navigate this new reality. I requested insights on how to be of service during this time, and this is what I received... Everyone has the ability to access this deep, loving part of themselves. You can cultivate this awareness through meditation, journal writing, through silent walking... Now, more than ever, is when we must deepen this connection to our true Selves so that we can be of greater service to the whole. ............................................................ Your highest service is in the sharing of yourself. Your words, energy, actions are all balms to others. You are here to share your pure heart with the world. Your heart holds the hidden codes of divinity. Your heart is the key to all other hearts. Your heart knows beyond knowing and sees beyond what can be seen. Your work now is to center yourself in the throne of your heart. Here you are sovereign. Here you are fully your Self. Here there is nothing you can't overcome. Here you are everything; you are One. Your work now is to remind others of their own heart place. And to guide others towards that. There is nothing to fear; nothing to grasp onto. There is nothing more you need to hide, forget or cast off. The time for becoming whole is upon us. The old world breaks open as the new world beckons.
