We are all self-governing.
Let us call upon our Ancestors and teachers - past and present,
to guide us in the way of the Heart.
You are all my relations. All is One.
Welcome to May. This time is truly a catalyst of major change, to which many seers have long been referring. A time where the world is at its feet (and at home). A time of great collapse - before rebirth.
Last month I used the metaphor of the cocoon, and the truth that, in the chrysalis, the caterpillar turns to mush before making a grand entrance as a butterfly. The answers can always be found in nature.
A miraculous metamorphosis is in your sights… you must act, and, you must be patient.
This month there are strong themes around communication. Paradoxically, alongside that, are energies that indicate confusion and grey areas. In ‘Sitting in the Fire’ Arnold Mindell says that chaos and conflict can be our most exciting teacher, when we sit in the fire and remain open-hearted. When we focus in our heart, our self-awareness grows, community grows, and we can become part of the solution. Mindell also reminds us that lasting change, and strength in community, is always based on respect for the unknown.
Trust the mysterious river has its path. Your job is to stay calm and connected, so you can anchor into ‘respect for the unknown’, and go forward when those steps are clear. During May, make calming and connecting a daily practice, and dance by the banks of the mysterious river, as its path is revealed in Divine Time.
Love and Light Blessings,
