Breathing deeply, energy grows within the body. Feeling the flow of life’s blood, Qi is raised. Hands cupped, the world in miniature form is visualized between them. Healing energies from Spirit are amplified through the breath, blown into this world between the palms.

All life benefits from these gifts given, acknowledged by humans, amplified by the life force carried into this world by those in flesh.

Union with those bygone and those yet to come, we heal so that we may enjoy the purity of the haven created for, and given to, us … WE.

Wild Soul Woman

Wild Soul Woman

When we consider how embedded we are in the Earth,
how we are literally made of the same stuff
as rivers, rocks and roots,
we can see how separating from this beautiful, fecund world
might be damaging to our psyches.
Have you ever suffered a terrible accident, betrayal or loss?
Then you know you can be left depleted, depressed,
perhaps even cast adrift …
As if you aren’t quite whole.
In losing our intimate relationship with the Earth
we modern humans have suffered a particular trauma
that has caused our wild souls to split off.
How do we heal the wounded wild?
How do we reclaim our wild souls?
The answer lies within each one of us.

Mother I Feel You

Published April 13, 2018 by tindertender

Let us grow our awareness of what is under our feet, that stable soil that holds us up and allows us to grow, and build.

The sink holes that have been occurring are due to fracking and disrespect for this planet that gives us so much. The waters that now burn are due to the same.

Let there be a shift in how we see life, what we receive and what we give.

Extinction Cascade

Published April 9, 2018 by tindertender

Extinction CascadeThe White Rhino was recently announced to be extinct, and more recently the Eastern Puma … gone forever. Many more will begin to leave this planet as well, with a rapidity which will spin our minds. The whales of the sea are dying along with all of the other life that dwells there.

When will humanity change their destructive ways and stop being so damn greedy?

The 50-foot whale, constructed from waste such as bags, containers and bottles, was created by environmental NGO Greenpeace Philippines as part of efforts to encourage the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) to address the problem of plastic pollution.

Beached Whale art for awareness

This may be a sculpture to help bring awareness to this dire issue, but it does not lessen the travesty being wrought upon all life through these destructive habits we’ve adopted world wide.

It Is Time

Published March 31, 2018 by tindertender

There is a time to hold the council of silence
There is a time to speak Truth.
There is a time when ancient seeds, long dormant,
Are once more planted and fully bloom.
When the future of humanity is being dreamed, created,
and activated.
Death begets new Life.
Humanity’s future will be different from its past.
~ Gaia Codex, Sarah Drew

This is Easter weekend. It is a grand opportunity to practice what it is we would like to see in the world. Rather than react to what people may say, or do, we have the option to hold empathy in our hearts for that person, or people, we perceive are doing wrong.

In the midst of pain it is quite difficult to release the need to be defensive, to attack and protect our self. Mind you, I speak only of the non physical here. Should our very lives be in peril, of course I do not recommend just standing there and taking it.

Before it comes to blows though, there is a point where a situation can be deflated, or escalated. Often the choice is ours, and with practice, we can become masters at deescalation.

In today’s world we see military’s who are experts at escalation, they always come to blows with whoever disagrees with their agenda. The entire planet seems to be on the brink of mass destruction … it is laughable really, how these ‘powers that be’ pretend to hold authority on peace.

Each individual, YOU, have the power to create that which you wish to see in the world. Through your actions and responses to those around you, a major shift can take place in the minds and hearts of others. Everything we say and do affects those around us, everything.

If this body was crafted 
from the same intelligence 
that created the miracle of the living universe,
rainbows, river banks, whale song and forest floors,
why on earth would I not listen, 
trust and follow its voice 
as it speaks through me? 
Surely it would only guide me in
the fullest expression of myself?
~ Clare Dubois, Founder of TreeSisters

You are that …
That which you create …
More powerful than you may have realized.

Rock Stacking, Elemental Union

Published March 30, 2018 by tindertender

Meditation comes in many ways, rock stacking is one of them. The focus is so keen on the balancing of them, all else falls away. In time, even the effort to stack them may fade, as it just seems ‘to happen’.

FluoriteStones are some of the oldest known substances of the earth. Crystals of all kinds make up this fabulous world! Fluorite is a fantastic item to have in inventory, not just for its beauty, but for the properties it offers the possessor.

Fluorite is a highly protective and stabilizing stone, useful for grounding and harmonizing spiritual energy. When working with the upper Chakras, Fluorite increases intuitive abilities, links the human mind to universal consciousness, and develops connection to Spirit.

It absorbs and neutralizes negative energy and stress. An excellent learning aid, Fluorite increases our powers of concentration, self-confidence and helps us in decision-making. It encourages positivity, balances the energies, and improves balance and coordination, both physically and mentally.

I hold in my hands the one pictured above as I listen to the Tibetan singing bowls being played.

While life as a young person is spent detaching, finding who we believe we are, older years may be spent in developing an understanding that in union, with each other, and with all of the elements of the earth, are we fully and truly who we were meant to discover.

Happy Planet

Published March 29, 2018 by tindertender

Woman in rainWhere is the door to God?
In the sound of a barking dog,
In the ring of a hammer,
In a drop of rain,
In the face of
Everyone
I see.
Hafiz

Often we find ourselves so focused on tasks we do not look up long enough to notice what is surrounding us. Especially now days, everywhere we look heads bowed and intensity focused on the smart phone being carried. No one really sees each other any more. A great disconnect has occurred.

Goddess
I, the fiery life of divine wisdom,

I ignite the beauty of the plains,
I sparkle the waters,
I burn in the sun, and the moon, and the stars,
With wisdom I order all rightly …
I adorn all the Earth,
I am the breeze that nurtures all things green …
I am the rain coming from the dew
That causes the grasses to laugh with the joy of life.
I call forth the tears, the aroma of holy work.
I am the yearning for good.
Hildegard of Bingen

Life is beckoning us to take notice once more of its majesty. For too long the emphasis has been put on commercialism … what we can get, how much can we get, followed by, how can I stop others from taking what I’ve got.

Total disconnection from nature and all that provides what life needs, and disconnection, which has grown into disregard, for each other. THIS is what commercialism has brought us.

It is time to embrace the sacred, and to develop ways to protect it, for only in doing so will we get along … just as we’d like to, with a happy planet.
