Action

Mountains rise reaching to the sky but below the eye they touch the heart of our mother. Holding her flesh together like her bones.

The trees reach towards the sun, their roots travelling deep, far and wide, securing it’s magnificence to the surface. Like sinews holding everything in place.

The waters flow from the heavens, permeating deep go replenish under ground streams. Like the blood flowing through our veins.

Thunder booms in the sky while lighting hits the ground with a jolt so strong it can power a car. Like the force of the pump that beats our heart.

The wind blows from all directions, sometimes soft, sometimes hard. Blowing up tyres and sailing boats. Filling our lungs and bringing us life.

Oil comes up from the deepest parts and travels around our mother, clearing, lubricating. Like the blood within our veins.

The grass grows long, or short, dancing in the breeze, like a beacon for passers, absorbing the dew and offering shade. As our hair, connecting us to heaven and earth as a natural antenna and umbrella.

These are but a few of how we are all connected with nature, with each other.

As above so below, as without so within.

What we do to our planet we do to ourselves and vice versa.

Is your body your temple? Or Is the mountain? If you revere only one, then life is out of balance. For without one there is no other.

Take time to observe nature today and see how she is a reflection of you.

What can you change within yourself to change what you see out in the world?

Take action today, tomorrow is not guaranteed.

Melding of the Tides

Melding of the Tides

This morning I had a dream for the second time this year, its a new one to me in that it is not a recurring childhood dream.  I’m not too sure what its all about but thought I should write it out and maybe gain a little more clarity on it.

The beginning bit was different this time, the first time I was in a house maybe a B+B with my partner (im single btw). This time we were walking through a village, not sure where it was, could have been the UK or somewhere similar to the lake district, it was as green, clean air etc but much warmer.

Anyway we are walking along, chatting away, kissing and cuddling like lovers do.  We stop near a T junction and i sit on a wall, he was stood in front of me with his arms around me. Over the road there are a few shops, we were embracing and laughing and i gently kissed his neck, at the exact time i did that a beautiful woman in shorts and a bikini top came down the hill on a pushbike and stopped outside the shop opposite us.  He couldn’t take his eyes off her, so I went ballistic, told him I was disgusted at his behaviour especially at the timing and told him that I wont be disrespected like that again and it was over.

He looked mortified , not at me exploding into some psycho witch from hell but at his behaviour, and said that he has no idea why he did that and genuinely looked bemused.  He apologised and said that he needed to go back to our digs to think on his actions, alone.  So I said that is fine and I needed some space too and we went our separate ways and I went to investigate this beautiful place we were in.

People were friendly here, smiling and saying hello as they passed, everyone felt like they were in holiday mode.  Some where there like us as tourists but mainly it were local people, all happy and smiley, at peace with themselves and the world.

The main part of the village was raised, there were rolling hills to one side, which I gazed upon while having a coffee, wondering what they had witnessed down here over the years. At the other end of the village was a river and across from that was wild country, nature at its best, untamed or tampered with.

It was getting late in the afternoon and the sun began making its decent, so I headed into the village to ask for directions back to where I was staying.

People were all super excited and running around like crazy, some going one way and others going in the opposite direction.  So figuring something exciting was about to happen and I followed some of them, running to catch up.

We were running through the streets towards the back of the village, then we turned a corner and I could see the sea!  There were black cast iron railings and everyone was clambering onto them to get a better look. The waves were huge and angry looking, crashing and breaking against the wall and everyone laughed as they got wet.  The tide was coming in closer and closer very quickly.  in the corner to the right where the wall met with the wall of a building, there was a rather large guy and his son stood on top of the railing, leaning against the building, father holding son closely as they balanced precariously on this railing.  My heart was in my mouth and before I didn’t even finish thinking to myself that he was being irresponsible and they were both in danger, before a huge wave came over the top of them both and washed them off into the crowd.  Luckily they were not hurt and got up to run with the crowd again as they raced to get across the village, to where they would witness the sea emerge from under the village.

I followed them, running along in all the hysteria felt quite liberating, exciting and scary all that the same time.  I had no idea where we were going or what we were going to witness, maybe more of the same, waves crashing and people getting wet?

They had all disappeared round the corner and off at break neck speed so I was lagging behind, trying to keep up by following the other stragglers.

When I finally caught up with them the scene was very different, people were still excited but everything was calm and serene.  I pushed my way to the front and was bewildered to see ahead of us the sea coming in from the opposite direction!  it was calm, and slowly making its way towards us, no crashing waves just gently lapping along. 

I was confused but so intrigued, how can this be? Before I had time to formulate my thoughts there was a big ‘OHHH’ from the crowd to the left, then silence.  Everyone was still, everything was quiet apart from the clicking of cameras. I looked back to the sea which had drawn closer then I looked down to the river below and saw it. 

The sea we had witnessed earlier was making its way towards the other!  it had calmed a little with travelling below the village but was travelling faster than the other.  the waves eventually touching momentarily before subsiding again, like they were testing the waters before diving in. Slowly they gently joined becoming one ocean, it was magical, so beautiful, it took my breath away and filled my heart with love and wonder.  As they joined, the sun was setting, casting rays of golden, red and orange light across the union, like the universe itself blessed this auspicious moment.  The seam where they joined was clearly visible, like they were seperate entities but joined as one, one soul, one energy yet individual in their own right.  Ying Yang.

Everyone turned and hugged each other, the love shared there in that moment was so powerful the hairs on the back of my neck stood up and tears of joy rolled down my cheeks.

People began to disperse, some going to find a cafe to sit and absorb the experience and others headed towards the wilderness to find a place to set up camp before darkness rolled in.

I walked slowly on the way back, replaying it in my head, in awe at what I had witnessed and sad that my partner had missed this magical experience.

Then I was asking someone if they know of a chiropractor that I could  visit for my back pain and they directed me to a building with an intercom.  i got there and rang for assistance, they let me into the building and it was set up a bit like a chemist.  I went to the receptionist window and asked if i could get an appointment with the chiropractor, she silently pointed me to a sign on the wall.  The sign was a bit like a directory, ‘press 1 for the Dentist’ etc…so I pressed the number for the chiropractor and sat down to wait.

While I was waiting, my partner appeared.  He came and sat next to me and i asked him how he had found me?  He said that is not important but what is, is that he realised what was behind his earlier out of character actions, he said that he realised it was fear.  That he had found someone he did not want to loose and through that fear he created the thing he feared most. And asked for my forgiveness.

At that moment there was a ping as the speaker announced for me to go to the reception. I stood up, squeezed his hand and smiled, then walked over to reception.  The lady had gone and there was a box of eggs sat there with my name wrote in the lid. Bemused I took the eggs and turned around to leave.

Then I woke up, with major back ache from all that running around. 😉

I realised while writing this out that we went around all the directions of the medicine wheel.

Starting out in the East by the T junction, moving to the West with the mountains,  North with the wilderness, South with the angry sea and back to the North/West for the merging. 

I will ponder on it all today but what do you think it means?

The Element of Air

This week I have been sitting with the element of air.

Totem: Eagle + Condor.

Air correlates to the Eastern part of creation. It represents the vital breath from the winds that brought the Universe into being, with the breath of life (Om).

 Air is also connected to the mind, wisdom, spirits and the soul.

When we create a prayer ceremony, using fire, breath work or spoken word, our prayers are carried up to creator on the winds.

Air or breath is the life giver to all life on our planet, it breathes in life and exhales it in death.

When we breathe in we are inhaling oxygen that may have travelled around the world and through thousands of other beings.  And when we exhale we pass that breath along. We share this same breath with the trees as we do with the critters, It connects us all together.

If you connect to the breeze you may hear their stories, or feel them as you breathe.

There are many breath work techniques that can help with various things from anxiety to asthma to restful sleep, all help to move stagnant air out and refuel you with a fresh supply of oxygen.

Eagle and Condor, both welcome in the new day soaring on the wind, they bring in new opportunities, growth and inspiration. 

When we open up to them we begin to float on the breeze, becoming one with the air that surrounds us and within us. Then we begin to comprehend this element at a deeper level.

May the winds of our Ancestors blow softly in your ear today.
