Arvhived Inspirations & Meditations ...

 

 

December 2013

 

Any Day We Wish

Any day we wish; we can discipline ourselves to change it all.

 

On Humilation

When we are humiliated, we are in effect returning to the ground of our being.

 

Letting Go
Letting go is not such a foreign experience. We do it every night when we go to sleep.

 

Illness as Part of Your Spiritual Journey
When an illness is a part of your spiritual journey, no medical intervention can heal you until your spirit has begun to make the changes that the illness was designed to inspire.

 

What Lies Beneath in Winter
It takes the sudden daylight, some unexpected surprise of life, to cause our gaze to look upon a simple, stunning growth that has happened quietly inside us.

 

Midwinter Night's Eve ~ Yule
It makes perfect poetic sense that on the longest night of the winter, "the dark night of our souls," here springs the new spark of hope, the Sacred Fire, the Light of the World, the Coel Coeth.

 

Meaningful Gift-Giving
Gifting is that precious means by which entry into other's soul is possible. But in today's consumer-driven life, gifts too have become 'plastic-coated'; we have become dependent on the market to fulfil our wish of giving.

 

Yourself as a Being of Light

I suggest that you view yourself as a being of light, a fast moving energy system that has the capacity to make darkness disappear.

 

Energy Medicine

Everything that is alive pulsates with energy and all of this energy contains information.

 

Making Mistakes Wakefully

A genuine spiritual path does not avoid difficulties or mistakes but leads us to the art of making mistakes wakefully, bringing

them to the transformative power of our heart.

 

On the Death of the Beloved

Though we need to weep your loss, You dwell in that safe place in our hearts, Where no storm or might or pain can reach you...

Nine Wisdom Steps
Nine Practices for Creating Peace and Balance

 

We are Not Meant to Stay Wounded
By remaining stuck in the power of our wounds, we block our own transformation.

 

You Carry Your Wound
With the ego, your whole being is a wound. And you carry it around.


The Power of Circles
May we rediscover the power of circles, of sitting in council to listen and learn.


Knowing Kindness
Before you know what kindness really is you must lose things.


Your Most Powerful Act
Ours is not the task of fixing the entire world all at once, but of stretching out to mend the part of the world that is within our reach.


Finding Your Roots
If you feel disconnected, or that something is missing from your life, perhaps it resides in the ground beneath your feet.


A Message from Your Ancestors
Spoken from the land, heard in stillness with the heart.

Acknowledging Your Growth
Evolution of your soul is a natural fact of life and becomes a potent motivational force when celebrated.


Connection to Spirit
...nothing is more important than maintaining our connection to Spirit. Nothing.


Imagine a Woman
A woman who has walked through her past. Who has healed into the present.


For a New Beginning
In out-of-the-way places of the heart, Where your thoughts never think to wander, This beginning has been quietly forming, Waiting until you... were ready to emerge.


A Barrier Called Blame
We habitually erect a barrier called blame that keeps us from communicating genuinely with others, and we fortify it with our concepts of who's right and who's wrong.

 

The Invitation
It doesn't interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart's longing.


She is Maiden, Mother and Crone
Do you know her? Do you recognize her in yourself and in others?


You Were Made For This
My friends, do not lose heart. We were made for these times.
