“The universe buries strange jewels deep within us all, and then stands back to see if we can find them.” ― Elizabeth Gilbert
What number lifetime are you on?
Rainy days give us an opportunity for reflection and introspection. There’s no shame in taking some time to go inward. In fact, our spiritual health depends upon it.
Sometimes a slight shift in perspective can change everything. Look beyond the obvious, see the bigger picture.
We are many layered beings, and it’s easy to get stuck focusing on the superficial. Shamanic journeying gives us an opportunity to swim in the waters of our shadows and light.
Imagination is the gateway to intuition. I’ve noticed that sometimes after people have deeply transformational experiences, it can be followed by a wave of doubt. Our western minds have guided us for so long, and they retaliate at the idea of the “unexplainable”. “Everything can be explained” says the mind. And so we ask ourselves “Was that real, or am I making this all up?” It’s a dangerous road to walk down. To develop our intuition we need to TRUST, especially at first. Trust wholeheartedly, and be okay with being wrong. It’s the only way to recalibrate our compass. It’s the only way to make the journey from head, to heart.
The one mother we all have in common. Mother Earth, Pachamama, Gaia. Honor her and she will bless your life with beauty. We are all Earthkeepers.
“We sense that ‘normal’ isn’t coming back, that we are being born into a new normal: a new kind of society, a new relationship to the earth, a new experience of being human.”
― Charles Eisenstein
We all have a story. Some of the stories we tell might make us out to be victims of our circumstances. Others tell great tales of triumph in the face of adversity. While many more fall somewhere between the two.
We are the storytellers of our lives, and it’s easy to forget our power when it comes to weaving these tales. Great healing can occur when we choose to see it all from the eagles perspective. From there we can see the jagged rocks, the mountain peaks, and canyons. We can see the beauty of the journey, and how the punishing desert can reward us with the lush oasis. We are all climbing our own mountains, where are you on your journey?
I am grateful to be able to share my story with you today. From my heart to yours.
…And they’re only expanded through discomfort. It’s true that life doesn’t have to be a struggle, but our routines can also become way too comfortable. Even if we’re “living the dream” we still need to consistently challenge ourselves in order to grow. As I've deprogrammed from cultural beliefs equating life with struggle, and installed new ideas stating that "change can be easy", perhaps I’ve lost something along the way? I still believe that evolution can happen with grace and with ease, but in order for those BIG shifts to take place we have to face our fears head on.
