“We live in a magical universe filled with great forces of life and death, creation and destruction. Divine powers can be found everywhere to lift us into a greater peace and understanding. But ‘undivine’ forces are also ever present, working to lure us into confusion and attachment. Truth and falsehood, ignorance and enlightenment form the light and dark, the illumination and shadow of the world. In this basic duality of creation, we struggle not merely to survive but also to find meaning in our lives. We must learn to navigate through these contrary currents so that we can benefit by the ascending spiritual force and avoid the descending spiritual inertia.”
~Dr. David Frawley, Ayurveda and the Mind
Great advice this week: Remember to pray and don’t allow yourself to get caught up in fear.
Doreen is working with the Archangel Michael deck this week, as April will bring about big and rapid changes. We could all use Archangel Michael’s healing and protection. The wonderful news is that the bottom line of the entire reading is ‘all is well.’ We can connect with that sense of well-being by letting go of fear and putting our faith in the Divine plan that is constantly unfolding.
Each of the cards also has a special prayer that relates to its subject, so most of the work is already done for us. All we must remember to do is pray. Hurray!
Now that spring is here, you may be considering undertaking some good ol’ spring cleaning. As I’ve said, this is a great time of year to make changes- out with the old and in with the new. Powerful forces are present to support any little seedling intentions that we wish to manifest. Working consciously with them is like a power-boost to our manifestation.
If your spring cleaning includes ditching any old habits or patterns that affect the body, the equinoxes are a great time for an Ayurvedic cleanse.
In Ayurveda, the seasons have a predominant dosha just as human beings do. Spring is a kapha season- with the wetness of spring rains and the heaviness of the saturated earth as comes back to life.
Following an Ayuvedic ‘spring cleaning’ program can help balance kapha in the body. Less kapha means less heaviness and more energy. Less inertia and more action.
Working with Mother Nature in this way is a great way to jumpstart any goals you have concerning your health and wellbeing. I don’t know about you… but I can use all the help I can get ♥
This week, Doreen is working with the Magical Unicorns deck. She points out that she created this deck specifically to be child-friendly… for children of all ages. Fun! I may have to get some. Anything with unicorns is a win with me. Plus, I could use a child-friendly deck so that ‘that little boy’ has a place to focus his curious paws
Anyway… Doreen says that this will be a week of great growth and change. The timing is perfect with the equinox happening overnight tonight. Sounds like it may be a week of spring cleaning on many levels. Remember- opening, allowing, and working with the flow works better than resisting and struggling. Let go and ride the wave!
And for the children, inner children, those with children, those inspired by the unicorns, etc., tonight’s the night to test the Vernal Equinox egg balancing myth. Does it work for you?
I am in such awe of the way things come together sometimes. When I make a conscious effort to open my heart and open my mind, I can usually step out of the way and watch things take shape before my eyes. Unbelievable, but true. So anyway…
As I’m stumbling and bumbling along watching for inspirations, little clusters of goodness have been dropping into my brain. Some amazing notion will pop up and then I’ll see it everywhere for the next few days. For example, I had been reflecting on the peaceful protests that are taking place throughout our country right now, and I recalled hearing about a large-scale meditation “sit-in” that had taken place in Washington, DC in the early 90s. It was in What the Bleep, maybe. It went something like this…
In 1993 in DC, there was an experiment that brought large numbers of meditation practioners into the city and tracked the number of violent crimes during the time they were there. They were to come into the city and sit in meditation. That’s it. No one was to be informed that they were doing this other than the meditators, the police, and those collecting the data. The experiment was conducted over 8 weeks, and the number of meditators increased as the weeks went on. Guess what happened? Oh right… you saw the graph. If you would like a more detailed account of the study, check it out here.
It just amazes me. I know it’s the truth. And still, it totally amazes me how powerful we are when we tap into our most basic gifts. It’s hard not to wonder why this isn’t happening everywhere?? But wait… and I come back around to the Occupy movement. It is happening. The field is fertile for the most unbelievable possibilities. Open, open, open.
As one flower pushes its way out into the sun, it creates the space for the next one to blossom. At first, it’s one here and then there. Each flower that has already begun to blossom must hold space for the others that haven’t arrived at that point yet. Soon, the number of arrivals grows exponentially, and the landscape transforms more and more quickly. Each new crop holding space and creating the conditions for the blossoming of all.
Thankfully, I found Jeanne Ball’s powerful article tying all of these inspirations together so nicely for me. Thanks to her for that. You can see all of these threads weaving together in front of me has me feeling a little poetic and awestruck. She does an excellent job of laying out the possibilities for consciousness (collective consciousness, oneness consciousness…) to determine the direction our world will take now.
I like the possibilities!! ♥ ♥ ♥
L O V E to all.
Today’s gratitude list: Shiva Rea and free expression.
Women throughout history were burned at the stake for self-expression like this, both literally and metaphorically. Many thanks to Shiva for leading the way. Now… Get up. Release your fear. Embrace Shakti. Embody the shift.
This is such a powerful message. I’ve been watching this clip over and over again today because he so beautifully articulates so much I’ve been trying to say in this blog. The time is now. The revolution is L O V E!
The forces of change are swirling all around us- it’s not just about the Occupy Wall Street movement or New Age philosophy or yoga. Those are merely different melodies whose notes are aimed at harmonizing with this amazing vibration that is emerging. They are also ways of tagging what is happening and putting it in a box- giving it a name so that the ego can declare “that is not me.” But it is. It is all of us. Like he says, the current mode of being isn’t working for the 1% either. There is a great force that is rising to swallow the shattered fragments of humanity and reunify them- heal them, and that force is universal love.
This is a powerful time to be a human on this planet. Each of us is so miraculously blessed to be here. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
And LOVE TO ALL.[If you would like to support Occupy Love, learn more here.]
