Does this seem unusual to you? Sort of like, someone leaning into spirituality and letting that inform what they do next about healthy living, and how to give others permission to do the same?
It doesn't need to be this unusual. For example, the first time we saw this dragon, out on a family run, it occurred to me that WE too, are a pack of dragons. And while the dragon seemed like a little whimsey, it goes far deeper for us. It is a symbol of bending and folding and leaning in.
As a tribe of dreamers, of health enthusiasts, critical thinkers, of barefoot gardeners and die hard nature lovers, we make decisions and focus in on what will this do for the planet? What will this mean for our health? How does this impact our community? What is the happiness quotient, in the long run? What do night dreams tell us, of our day dreams? And how do we fold them all together?
My Vedic charts say I am a "Doctor of 100 medicines," and while I totally identify with this reading, it does not look traditional in the western world.
No, we natural healers do not get big kickbacks from big Pharma, like medical doctors in this country. When I hear about medical healers being critical of what I do, I have to laugh. Because they DO get those dollars, and wow does that feel short of what is needed.
And, the more decisions I see made in this time, the more proud I am of this fact that I do NOT march with them. I am a biophiliac. an organic gardener. I am an environmental toxicologist. a subversive. I am a hydrologist. a reader of your waters. I am a children's author. a pot stirrer. I am a die hard wellness scientist. a natural health advocate. I am committed to the Universal golden rule and natural law. a spiritual speaker and seeker.
What does that mean?
It means I have studied.
It means I have and continue to consciously tap in, to the thread that is greater than all of us.
It means I do trust my instinct, and my experience integrating worlds.
It means that I am passionate and I will stand for you, for your children, in ways that might surprise you.
It means that I am healing, it is why I do what I do, and in honor, I will share healing skills and tools with others.
It means I will empower you, if you will let me.
It means I will hold sacred space for you.
For your process,
for your voice quivering and finding,
for your rage meeting and moving,
for your truth uncovering and identifying,
for your wings unfurling,
for your soul's delight.
I will honor those who have gone before.
I continue to remember those who have chosen to leave the planet, who were not ready to adjust to this, time of times.
I sit in silence and bring presence to the whole of what IS.
The brokenness. The beauty. The clarity. The trust.
The fact that there is an infinite galaxy of possibilities, just beyond our periphery. The trust.
And until our wings unfurl and we unleash our last breath, we may NOT know that these are here and possible. The trust.
Planet Earth, we have so much good and so do you. Earth Dwellers, do not believe all that is before you, all that is spoken, all that is limited and human. Lift your eyes to the stars, and remember, deep down and way back in our evolution, that we are each made of stardust. You. Me.
Sit with that.
There is so much beyond what we know. Our job is to find our trust. To do our best. To find a good place to fix our gaze, despite the brokenness. To be present with what beauty we do have.
Here and now.
Use the tools.
Did you forget?
...Then you must
Find a teacher.
A path finder.
A way shower.
A light bearer.
Do what needs to be done. And always, fix your eyes to the stars. This comes with love.
