In February of 2015, grief irrevocably changed my life as only death can. Grief is necessary after a profound loss but I retreated into a spiral of stories I had attached to this passage; old and ancient tales that let me play it small, full of themes that assured me…
- You are not enough.
- Who do you think you are anyway?
- You will never be happy.
- You are nothing but an imposter.
- All roads lead to disappointment.
Pretty limiting story lines to keep me safe, keep me small, while lowering my risk to pain since the bar was set pathetically low.
Then Trump was elected.
And I woke from a slumber.
There is no more hiding, no more playing it small. Each of us are being asked to step into our power, not in dominion over another, but as a full embodiment of our soul’s purpose, our Dharma.
“We are children of Spirit, born from a source of love that is our birthright. We have lost our identity with the aspect of our being that is Infinite.
We have a strong identification with our finite being as if we birth from lack and limitation. We build our life on belief systems that say I am not enough as if our wisdom arises from a finite source that only comes through life experiences that limit what we know.
We are also a source of infinite wisdom, beyond our fear and doubt. Once we wholeheartedly know that, yes, we are a daughter/son of Spirit, a child born of Oneness, then the vastness of that intelligence is our intelligence too for it is that from which we are born. This too is part of our DNA.
The wisdom of the stars resides in us. The wisdom of the Earth lives in us for we are born of that and to that we return.
What to do with this short time we are here?
What to do with the fleeting life we are given?
How do we spend our time for our very brief stay here on Earth?”
We launch our journey, A Vow To Love, on the first New Moon of 2017. Our world is currently dominated by an old paradigm of patriarchal doctrine that lacks vision for protecting our planet and reveres policies of exclusion.
This journey is not a political one but a personal one; one created with the intention of awakening a seed in each of us so we may be a catalyst for love in whatever way we are called to serve. As we anchor a vibration of love within us, we bring that love into the world around us.
The climb is not a race to the top nor is it a competition to see who can get there first. We do not climb to say we have conquered the mountain.
So why do we climb? Why begin the ascent at all?
Our spiritual journey allows us to see from the widest possible perspective. From the summit of a mountain we can see in all directions. We can see what is above and what is below. Our vantage point is elevated so our vision broadens. We climb in order to see, wide and clear.”
A Vow To Love opens us to new ways of seeing and sensing our bodies and its connection to the body of Earth. Practices are organized by the four elements and are offered via email through video and written word.
At the heart of this course is a series of 7 videos, each about 30 minutes in length, that guide you through meditations to align with love and deepen the connection to our Earth Mother using movement, sound, breath and music. They are like taking a private class from the comfort of home.
If you feel called to take the journey register early for the special rate of only $20.17. On January 27th the cost will be $25.00.
I hope you join me.
