Full Moon and Leo Bonanza ~ R U Wide Awake or Having a Teenage Dream?

wikipedia.org, public domain

In just a little while the Capricorn Full Moon will be upon us. Happy July to everyone. Can anyone tell me where the first half of 2015 went? What a rollercoaster ride it has been!

This morning Venus cozy-ed up to Jupiter at 21 degrees Leo. Saturn is demanding caution with a square at 29 degrees Scorpio.  Uranus is trining the lovebirds at 20 Aries and Mercury is sextiling them at 19 Gemini. So many planets are pairing up today. With the full moon we have Sun conjunct Mars in wide opposition to Pluto. Pluto is conjunct the Moon.

We have such a full plate with most of the solar system in play. Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto are getting busy today. So much to absorb and so little time. Do we focus on Blazing Sun in Cancer or Controlling Moon in Capricorn? Mars and Pluto are 2 sides of the same coin and Cancer/ Capricorn are mommy and daddy with plenty of edge. With my 7th house all lit up with Leo magic, I am going to discuss the nature of enlightened relationships.

I am led to use A Course in Miracles today to illustrate how 3D world limitations can impact how we love and who we love. Here is an excerpt from The Manual for Teachers, page 6 & 7:

What Are the Levels of Teaching?

The teachers of God have no set teaching level. Each teaching-learning situation involves a different relationship at the beginning, although the ultimate goal is always the same; to make of the relationship a holy relationship, in which both can look upon the Son of God as sinless. There is no one from whom a teacher of God cannot learn, so there is no one whom he cannot teach. However, from a practical point of view he cannot meet everyone, nor can everyone find him. Therefore, the plan includes very specific contacts to be made for each teacher of God. There are no accidents in salvation. Those who are to meet will meet, because together they have the potential for a holy relationship. They are ready for each other.

The simplest level of teaching appears to be quite superficial. It consists of what seem to be very casual encounters; a “chance” meeting of two apparent strangers in an elevator, a child who is not looking where he is going running into an adult “by chance,” two students “happening” to walk home together. These are not chance encounters. Each of them has the potential for becoming a teaching-learning situation.

Each teaching-learning situation is maximal in the sense that each person involved will learn the most that he can from the other person at that time. In this sense, and in this sense only, we can speak of levels of teaching. Using the term in this way, the second level of teaching is a more sustained relationship, in which, for a time, two people enter into a fairly intense teaching-learning situation and then appear to separate. As with the first level, these meetings are not accidental, nor is what appears to be the end of the relationship a real end. Again, each has learned the most he can at the time. Yet all who meet will someday meet again, for it is the destiny of all relationships to become holy. God is not mistaken in His Son.

The third level of teaching occurs in relationships which, once they are formed, are lifelong. These are teaching-learning situations in which each person is given a chosen learning partner who presents him with unlimited opportunities for learning. These relationships are generally few, because their existence implies that those involved have reached a stage simultaneously in which the teaching-learning balance is actually perfect. This does not mean that they necessarily recognize this; in fact, they generally do not. They may even be quite hostile to each other for some time, and perhaps for life. Yet should they decide to learn it, the perfect lesson is before them and can be learned. And if they decide to learn that lesson, they become the saviors of the teachers who falter and may even seem to fail. No teacher of God can fail to find the Help he needs.

When I began to study The Course back in 1988, I took great comfort in this lesson. My primary love relationship was complicated and I wanted to be okay with the length of time we would have together. I wanted to surrender to the miracle of two seemingly individual souls meeting, connecting, and then appearing to separate when their mission was complete.  Looking at today’s planetary events, I cannot help but think about the impact one’s parents or caretakers have on romantic entanglements. When does one’s slippery abusive father fail to impede one’s appreciation for the truly decent male partner?When does memories of smothering mommy no longer culminate in disabling asthma and the inability to commit? What is required to see ourselves as whole and innocent, so we can project that innocence to all the others we encounter as we move through space and time?

When I meet a new person, am I really seeing them clearly? How much sludge must be cleaned and is clearing a job that never ends? My buddy Matt Kahn has said that clearing is over and I certainly hope so. I often wonder who I am relating to and who is watching me in the figurative rear view mirror?

Jupiter Venus Mercury, and Uranus certainly make life exciting and new, and yet… I decided to work this transit and but some lottery tickets today. My 5th house is lit up so I figured some random gambling is in order. I see so many numerical sequences all the time so why not put them to some use?  Frankly I am proud that I took a small risk on abundance and adventure.  It is not much of an investment, though, when you can easily afford the potential loss. With love, the stakes are so much higher. While I have spent so much time and effort letting go of those relationships that were 2nd level teachings, it seems like the process has lasted a lifetime. This is where Saturn’s handiwork is most palpable. With so many of my past partners reappearing years later for a command performance, I have to wonder if time even factors into these connections. Perhaps the answer lies outside of space and time.

My inner teenager is activated in the beginning of any attraction. She is idealistic, hopeful, glowing, and beaming with possibility. No one told me she would live inside me all of my life. The more awakened aspect of me can often create distractions and manipulate the intentions I put out for manifestation. In other words, my spiritual wisdom can sometimes be used to distance myself from the yearnings of my heart. This is often unconscious, but lately not so much.

I have been crying with abandon lately, and it is healing. I do not understand why, but I just go with it.  I believe my heart chakra is opening up even more than I thought possible. It is exciting and scary, but isn’t that par for the course?

Or should I say “Course” ?

Fellow Scorpio Katy Perry does a fine job expressing the joy of eternal youth ( Leo) and the hardened “enlightened” approach ( Capricorn)

What archetype is most alive in your consciousness now? This is a perfect time to find the answer. Look to all natal planets placements between 19 and 29 degrees, with particular attention to the signs Cancer, Leo, and Capricorn.

Dealing with patterns

litebeing:

I am reblogging this post of Leigh’s because it is so comprehensive. It is a fabulous resource. Please re-blog as well so more people can access the information.

Although my last post was specifically about whining and complaining, the suggestions I’m providing here can work for moving through any kind of ingrained pattern.  I also wanted to remind you that it’s time to set aside that 10 minutes to pray for peace — see Collective Prayer Sunday page for more info.

Over the years I’ve tried many things and used many practices to shift out of negative thinking and I really think the whole conglomeration has had an impact.  Ingrained patterns are tough to shift and the more deeply embedded they are, the greater the challenge. I’ve found that it often helps to keep coming at it from different directions.

That said, I am NOT suggesting that every person out there needs to try every single thing on this list; nor do you need to do every thing that’s…

love is love

Rainbow_at_Ladoga

This has been quite an extraordinary week for myself, Barack Obama, and the United States. Since the president and I share a similar  birth chart ( Aquarius Ascendant, Moon in Gemini in 4th house, close Sun Neptune aspect, Uranus Pluto in the 7th, etc) I pay close attention to how transits affect him on the public stage. I got my tax return with an extra hundred dollars and extra iced tea. The Affordable Care Act ( Obamacare) was validated once more by the Supreme Court, the contentious Trade bill passed, same-sex marriage is the law of the land, confederate flags will be going the way of VHS tapes, and a heartfelt eulogy for Reverend Pinckney in Charleston became an impassioned channeling of the Divine, concluding with a poignant rendition of Amazing Grace.

This week was book-ended by grace. Last Friday the family members and loved ones of the murdered congregation and pastor forgave the alleged murderer and this Friday Obama’s rousing eulogy broadcasted grace all over the planet. This is not an exaggeration. I truly felt a surge of energy while watching him speak, both this morning at the White House and later this afternoon in Charleston.

Venus conjunct Jupiter transiting the descendant can work miracles with a Uranus trine added for good measure! Sometimes I find my president to be a bit cold and distant for a Leo with the moon in Gemini, but today he did me proud! I witnessed a greater version of the man as leader. While I understand that politics are always at play and that he is quite strategic, it was clear to me that he was being used by Source.

I have included excerpts of Obama’s speech today at the White House after the Supreme Court ruled in favor of marriage for all. I highlighted my favorite sections in italics.

Progress on this journey often comes in small increments. Sometimes two steps forward, one step back, compelled by the persistent effort of dedicated citizens. And then sometimes there are days like this, when that slow, steady effort is rewarded with justice that arrives like a thunderbolt.

But today should also give us hope that on the many issues with which we grapple, often painfully, real change is possible. Shift in hearts and minds is possible. And those who have come so far on their journey to equality have a responsibility to reach back and help others join them, because for all of our differences, we are one people, stronger together than we could ever be alone. That’s always been our story.

We are big and vast and diverse, a nation of people with different backgrounds and beliefs, different experiences and stories but bound by the shared ideal that no matter who you are or what you look like, how you started off or how and who you love, America is a place where you can write your own destiny.

We are people who believe every child is entitled to life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness. There is so much more work to be done to extend the full promise of America to every American. But today, we can say in no uncertain terms that we’ve made our union a little more perfect.

That’s the consequence of a decision from the Supreme Court, but more importantly, it is a consequence of the countless small acts of courage of millions of people across decades who stood up, who came out, talked to parents, parents who loved their children no matter what, folks who were willing to endure bullying and taunts, and stayed strong, and came to believe in themselves and who they were.

And slowly made an entire country realize that love is love.

What an extraordinary achievement, but what a vindication of the belief that ordinary people can do extraordinary things; what a reminder of what Bobby Kennedy once said about how small actions can be like pebbles being thrown into a still lake, and ripples of hope cascade outwards and change the world.

While watching him speak , my mind flashed to many of Matt Kahn’s teachings and I had a mini mystical experience. It was a realization that we may really be moving towards a new global paradigm. I know my country is far behind many nations in numerous areas and that saddens me. I am second generation American on my dad’s side and third generation on my mother’s, so my people have not been here long. My trip to Europe really brought home to me the fact that so many “less powerful” nations treat their people better. As a result, I identify more with European values and sensibilities than the conservative, repressive ways of many who run the US government. But when I reflect on the amazing experiment of this young country that started in the city I call home, I want to see things differently. The amazing speed of change within just one week is epic. If you read the text from both of Obama’s speeches, you will see signs of light.

On a similar note: I have been feeling Leofied lately , so naturally the Stones have been front burner. The song She’s A Rainbow came to me last weekend. When I was celebrating my windfall on Monday, I went to Barnes and Nobles ( big surprise, right!) and perused the music section. I notice some CDs are on sale and I pick up one by the Stones. Of course, She’s A Rainbow is one of the tracks so I was compelled to buy the album. What I did not consciously know back then is that the Supreme Court would rule in favor of same-sex marriage today, along with the incredibly popular use of rainbow symbolism. Maybe I was picking up on this psychically, not certain. I observed many rainbows today ( loved the rainbow White House) along with plenty of purple at the funeral in Charleston. I am aware that these symbols have multiple meanings but I equate purple with spiritual energy and rainbows as mystical beacons.

As always, please let me know your reactions.

In honor of purple, rainbows, and Venus( love) Jupiter ( faith and grace) in Leo, please enjoy this sweet Stones song( the purple link)

Poetry – Grace Everpresent

In honor of this extraordinary week of grace I am re-blogging this poem.

Where is Grace?

Grace is realizing the car keys are in your other pocket

Grace is when the cop gives you a warning this time

Grace is when the red birds descend on your terrace ” just because”

Grace is when you discover your checkbook error

that you subtracted one hundred dollars by mistake

Grace is when the sky opens and the sun tells the clouds to get lost for a spell

Grace is the neighbor’s cat who snuggles with you after yours has passed away

Grace is the stranger who helps you pick up your groceries off the floor

Grace is the MRI that reveals you don’t have that illness after all

Grace is accepting what is and surviving with renewed hope

Grace is a whole heart after a lifetime of shatters and scars

Grace is a million new beginnings

Grace is finding love way past your prime

Emotional Rescue ~ Gratitude Rising

I am noticing a liteness of being lately. Could be some lovely transits. Could be the result of my spiritual practices. Could be all or none of the above. Does not matter as I remain grateful. Get ready for the list cause here she comes.

You can listen to this while you read: Emotional Rescue

I am grateful to WordPress for making linking so much easier, way cool…

My income tax return arrived about 2 months late. HOWEVER, I was given an extra hundred dollars! Thought it was interest, but apparently I made some mathematical errors. I have been filing my own taxes since I got my first job and dear readers, I have never received extra money from the IRS! It is glorious to temporarily have more than enough money in the bank. Thank you!

After receiving the money, I get iced tea at McDonald’s. I pay for a medium drink and this lollapalooza size iced tea is planted in front of me. “Isn’t this a large?” “Yes, this one is cheaper than the one you ordered.”

Later that day I treat myself to a sushi lunch. I am so grateful for the splendor of beautiful fresh seafood and the ability to treat myself like a queen:

O Toro is the ocean in one bite. Salty, smooth, sweet, unctuousness to the next level. You must experience this for yourself. It is all about the texture. 

Matt Kahn is my hero. I spend many a night listening to his videos right before I fall asleep. I have recently heard that I am not the only one doing so. He whispers sweet nothings to my third eye and heart when my mind ( aka the universe) isn’t watching. His love is palpable and I carry it with me throughout my day. I am so grateful to find someone with a new message and a strong mission of healing our planet.

I wonder if the feeling of monetary abundance will propel me to raise my vibration. I may be oversimplifying this notion here, but I am referring to what happens when you function as someone who feels relieved and more peaceful. Matt speaks often about the magnificence of being a spirit in human form. Being in a body is not an inconvenience or a punishment, but a wonderful opportunity! When I hear him speak, I am so often reminded of my friend and blogger Sarah. Her blog domain is sayyestoeverything. Is this a coincidence? C’mon, if you read my blog even infrequently, you know the answer. What is interesting is that I do not even think she knows his teachings. The blessing here is that when some positive message is reinforced for me, its intensity becomes stronger! So I see Sarah in Matt and Matt in Sarah and that is beautiful.

Mars entered Cancer today. I feel less fried and hyped. Having Mars behind your Natal Mars in awkward at best and unsettling at worst. I am excited for my Mars return to arrive and set me on a new action cycle, whee! I have been crying like a baby on steroids and loving each wave of emotion as it arises. Love it or not, Mars in Cancer is my default position and it makes me more me!

The past few days make me consider the theory that the Universe is always conspiring in your favor. There are realities where the IRS gives you extra money and McDonald’s gives you extra iced tea and also slows you down so you can digest new material. I am working on becoming someone who can envision the most ridiculously over-the-top circumstances. I remember watching people being offered jobs while on the interview and thinking that is such crap, until it happened to me! Last year I was offered 2 jobs within about the space of 2 weeks. I did not believe it until it happened. It is time to create outrageously, rather than wait for the Universe to deliver your pizza before you believe in pizza! I am not a fan of belief anyway; I look for confirmation or validation. But faith is another thing entirely. I will be honest here, I have never been much of a faith person either. However, I am coming to the realization that trust is essential to living with a whole heart.

While I bitch and complain sometimes about my dependence on the internet, I am grateful for the ability to communicate with all of you. My mom and I were talking recently and she shared how she really prefers letters and phone calls to email or Facebook. I replied that without the internet it is unlikely that my writing would be available to others. She agreed with me on that point. There are so many facets to the utilization of technology. Do you brag that you no longer watch television, yet you sleep with your smart phone on by your bed? Do you text during dinner? Do you text while driving? Do you withdraw from in-person interaction more and more? Today the Moon in Libra can be a reminder to find some balance.

The thing is, the world we inhabit is spinning faster than ever and the advancement of technology is bombarding our collective psyche beyond its apparent limits. This is where faith and grace come in. There has to be some order. I have given up trying to understand everything, but not on stepping into my birthright of magnificence. We must rescue ourselves. We can choose to assist one another as we evolve and develop. I choose to say yes, with no reservation.

Solstice Supreme ~ Let Your Light Shine

Blackbird-sunset-03

Sunset is one of my favorite times of day. It is a liminal time and quite spectacular. With the Solstice upon us ( in my 5th house) and Jupiter trine Uranus sparking my Venus in Sag, my Leo energy is lit up like a Christmas tree! Leo is the ruler of the Sun and while today our Sun enters the sign of Cancer, the current energies are more fiery and incendiary. I have found this weekend full of unexpected fireworks and am hoping the sun will keep all of us warm and sparkly. For those in the Southern Hemisphere, I hope you are in alignment with the transition into the tranformational nature of Winter.

Sunset7_-_NOAA

I don’t have anything particularly profound to say except that the light is always accessible. Conscious breathe, a slower pace, and living with intention make a difference for me. I could focus on the bleakness that Father’s Day holds for me, or I could celebrate the men who commit to parenting and strive to be their best selves for their families. That is preferable to seething in bitterness and regret regarding men who failed to live up to their responsibilities and created negative ripples.

Corp2739

Like I wrote in a recent post, it is better to walk and don’t look back. If I can love myself enough to be love in the world, I am on a correct path. If I can love those who were not parented well, simply because they are consciousness, all is well. My mother reminded me today of the reactions of the loved ones who lost many in the Charleston murder tragedy. They love and forgive with vulnerability, purity, and passion. They are instruments of love. They shine with the brilliance of our star, the sun.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This blog is called litebeing chronicles because I seek to shine brightly and be a light for the planet. My stories illustrate my struggles and my triumphs. My chart ruler is Leo and it sits in the 7th house of relationships. I aspire to shine in service to others, knowing on another level, the other is a projection of me. Non duality can be quite heady and elusive, but that does not deter us from doing our best.

Gemini New Moon: Walk and Don’t Look Back

JamesBondBeach3 (1)

This image looks very similar to the snapshots I took back in 1990 when I went to Runaway Bay Jamaica.

My Jamaican adventure is a great entre into how to do this New Moon at 25 degrees Gemini. With Mars at 24 degrees Gemini closely conjunct and Mercury prancing direct once more, life has a spring back in its collective step.

Frankly I have become weary of writing astrology event articles since I seem so out of synch with the rhythms, floating in my own personal universe. But this one is different.

The lunation is very close to my own Gemini moon at 21 degrees Gemini and it hits my 5th house cusp. Coincidentally my progressed moon just came home to its original position, heralding a lunar return! I do feel more alive today, albeit sleepy (staying up very late playing computer games can do that!) Cards, computer games, photography, crossword puzzles, Facebook, twitter, reading, writing, blogging, run on sentences ~ all very Gemini.

Moon in Gemini is not about feeling emotions. It enjoys conversations about feelings! However I am learning to bridge the disconnect between heart and mind. My moon in the 4th house loves the soulful atmosphere but still grabs onto logic and reason. But where does that leave us?

But I digress, very Gemini indeed..

Musical inspiration often arrives first for blog ideas. The song Walk and Don’t Look Back popped into my head a week or so ago and I was going to use it for some other topic. But I am glad I saved it because it does a great job highlighting Sun Moon Mars in Gemini sextiling Uranus in Aries and Jupiter in Leo. Stay tuned, I explain later in the post. Chiron is squaring the Gemini stellium at 21 Pisces, but I say, don’t let him drag you down. If you have cleared out enough sludge this past year or two, Chiron will not be riding shotgun on your joyride.

I had dreamed of Jamaica for years and knew I had to visit. As often as I had traveled with my family to the Caribbean, we never chose this magical place where reggae, rum, and spicy cuisine form a holy trinity of passion, freedom, and relaxation. I loved Bob Marley and I also longed for white beaches and turquoise waters. I decided to travel alone as I needed to escape from some romantic drama. While I was afraid of traveling all by myself, I was determined to treat myself to a long deserved vacation. I found the experience initially to be filled with loneliness and sadness. What have I gotten myself into? Did I make a huge , expensive, mistake?  I had no place to hide so I felt my emotions and journaled about them. I was going to commit to this adventure. Very quickly the situation changed. I made a new Italian friend who spoke excellent English. Her traveling partner had to abruptly change plans, so she was also vacationing by herself in Jamaica. We became fast friends and spent most of the trip together. While our personalities were very different, we complemented one another and made lemons out of lemonade.

Less than one year later, I was boarding a plane alone to Milan Italy. My friend invited me to stay with her in Italy for a couple of weeks. I visited Milan, Rome, Venice, Lugano, Zurich, Bergamo, Pompeii, Naples, and much more. We did this all in 2 weeks. How did this happen? I had one of the most amazing experiences of my life. This was so much more than a vacation as I was invited into the life of an average Italian, staying in her home, meeting her friends and family, eating home cooked food, shopping at local markets, swimming in a city pool, and so much more. I got a peek inside the life of my Italian ancestors in present time.  Did I forget to mention I would also fall asleep at night dreaming about seeing Europe? How in the world did my trip to Jamaica lead me all the way to Italy and Switzerland? The following year she came to stay with me in the US. One decision led to two transatlantic trips over the course of 2 years. Being bold, communicating about emotions, and following your dreams can be very indicative of this lunation parried with 2 sextiles from Jupiter and Uranus. Taking a leap and staying open allowed me to make a unique connection and the universe took notice.

Strand_von_Negril

In my case, my natal Venus at 19 Sag is being activated and has formed a grand fire trine. This would be a great time for a vacation! While I do not have the resources to travel at the moment, I am almost ready to leave my sanctuary and have some fun. I hope you will do the same. Look to where 19 to 26 degrees of Aries, Gemini, and Leo are in your chart to figure out how to best create your celebration. Much love to Gem Moon blog sisters Jamie, Debra, Renate, and Amanda. I am so blessed to be in such great company.

This old Peter Tosh classic demands you leave the past behind and move forward, full steam ahead. I hope it inspires you to feel, sing, dance, and dream big!

Could You Be Loved?

Hello litebeings!

I don’t know about you, but I have been feeling very lethargic the past few days. It could be the extreme heat or something more. But in the car on my way to pick up shrimp and crab fried rice, Could You Be Loved? immediately came on the radio.  I knew right then what I would be posting on today. The teachings of Matt Kahn are intensely percolating in the coffee pot of my consciousness. It is time to pour a cup for me and you to sip and savor. Be warned, it may taste mellow, but this blend has quite a kick!

Photo644Matt has coined the name Love Revolution and I am processing how to apply this ideal to my life. While he seems to negate the teachings of ACIM and Eckhart Tolle, I will love him anyway. For one thing, I do not see any disconnect between these messages of love and presence and his own, and he says to love whatever arises. I think the reason I am strongly resonating with Matt is his ability to communicate and model his teachings. He keeps it interesting and fresh and has a personality that I find engaging. He is more dynamic than many on the scene today and he seems to be really authentic.

He speaks of enlightenment and how it is not a goal, but the beginning. This reminds of the old zen saying Before enlightenment chop wood, carry water, after enlightenment, chop wood, carry water. Matt raises discussion of the end game. I never expected to become fully enlightened. I hoped for more mystical openings, but I also hoped for freedom and security. For me that means the freedom to pursue travel, new people, adventure… Security means peace of mind and complete grounding within my being. I did not expect complete realization or ascension while in this body. This 5D idea is really new to me. I was content with having a window into the true nature of existence and finding more ways for me to heal myself and the world. He and many like him really raise the stakes of this game.

Photo664 (1)I would recommend this series to those new to Matt Kahn and his philosophy of love. He emphatically insists that shadow work and constant clearing are over, very old-school. He practices loving all of creation as you interact with yourself , other people, and all other manifestations of existence. I have to take an extraordinary big picture perspective to see how this idea complements the purpose of form and creation. It is almost too big for me and I am a big picture person!

Check it out and please report back: the pleiadian prophecy

I must end this blog on a lighter note. This material is not for those on their first rodeo, at least I don’t think so. In any event, I really hope that these videos I mention generate a lively discussion. While I am aware that whatever I learned in the past is not relevant now, I sometimes long for the days when my circle and I would watch videos and have parties filled with music. These were the days pre – internet when a gathering meant everyone in the same place.  On one such occasion, this song was playing loudly and the energy was pulasting with love and promise.

Enjoy:

How Am I Doing? ~ Mercury Direct Neptune Retro Wayward Pines Edition

Photo607I could be grocery shopping right now. But I am here with AC blazing on a Friday afternoon. We are having a heat wave and this new development took me by surprise. Everyone has been talking about the intense Mercury Neptune energy. Honestly for me it is like a regular day at the office ( when I actually went to an office.) Translation: I have Neptune Sun Mercury conjunct in Scorpio ( a stellium) so my mind naturally rides the waves of hyper-imagination, empathy, fantasy, and susceptibility to deception or illusion.

Having said that, I still am taking life slowly and simply for a few more days, focusing more on the inner journey and escapism entertainment. I am really enjoying this new Fox show Wayward Pines. I will not give away the plot twist but will say how wonderful it is to see Matt Dillon back on-screen and find a television series that seems original and captivating. Blending the familiar ( Matt Dillon) with the unfamiliar ( new mystery series) seems to be on today’s menu.

Which brings me to my update:

My health has been more stable the past few days. I continue to incorporate a greater variety of foods into my diet with caution and mild optimism. It has been over 2 months since my attack and I take comfort in this fact. While I still experience pain and discomfort, I believe that the passage of time without an episode indicates healing. I have begun to break out in pimples, which seems strange at first glance. My intuition tells me they are signs of toxins leaving my system.

My meditation practice is slowly coming back. I attended a soundbath on Sunday and it was lovely to hear the vibrations dance within the room and throughout my being. The healing helped activate my ability to go within for longer periods of time. Listening to my boy Matt Kahn has also served to relax me. He often refers to visits to the grocery store and these anecdotes really bring his message down to earth for me. As an empath, I often feel discombobulated in large stores filled with so much noise and activity. Listening to his escapades inspires me to be kinder to myself and others, wherever I go.

I finally put my Meetup to bed today. After switching the format and trying different ways to engage people, I decided to let the group fade away. I feel both relieved and excited. Relief in knowing I can channel my energy elsewhere and excited because another Meetup group invited me to join them as a group leader. While I often seem to succeed by operating independently, it was not happening with the Meetup. I do still hold a vision for a local sanctuary for the like-minded to come together and grow collectively. My contribution to this activity may still happen, but in a different form than I expected. I continue to latch onto the notion that failure is not a dirty word, but simply an attempt to try something new. Celebrating the attempt for its own sake is rather new for me. In Mental Health Recovery, celebration of any step forward in the client’s journey was the foundation of sound practice. Applying this principle in my own life seems awkward and forced. But I am working on it.

Why doesn’t WordPress announce its new features like live chat or statistics insights?

Am I becoming more comfortable with mystery in general?

NAMASTE

He’s a salt
that melts the ice
around the heart.
He’s a sauce
that turns every pain
into delectable mystery.
When you dunk
those french-fried ideas
of who you are into him,
they become something
else entirely…
Lotus blossoms.
Sea glass.
Abandoned buildings
filled with columns of moonlight.
Cello music over the water.

Like that.

There was a man
who took a breath, held it,
then Loved so completely
he became a tear.
He fell into the world,
diving down and down
until he reached the point
where every being merges,
and there the tear landed.
Now something is growing there,
spreading its roots through everyone.

I kept wanting to heal specific things.
