Change the NOW

I’ve run into a new form of… I don’t know whether to call it spiritual bypassing, privilege, or unconscious bigotry. I’ve been chewing on it a bit and trying to find the right words. There has been a trend, especially in the last 10 years, for members of a marginalized group, when creating workshops, to…

A Short Note on the Current Energies

I have to run off and teach, but I did want to make a note of the energy before I lost the thoughts… I know I’m feeling the solar storm. It has been hard to sleep, and everything just feels off. It’s somewhat similar to what I feel like before an earthquake, which was disconcerting…

Blog posts I’m chewing on (or, Witness My Process!)

Obviously, I need to write more installations for the stress series. I think the next one will be about sex as a form of stress release. Hide the children. I’m chewing on a post about communication issues in the context of Mercury Retrograde. I know that the issues that arise during these cycles are already…

Judgment comes from the negative ego and, as such, is restrictive. It is a tool, designed to keep us from growing and progressing, which allows our…

The Gratitude Challenge

I caught myself being negative lately about some things that were going on in my personal life. It wasn’t pretty, I didn’t like it, and I wanted to change it. I didn’t want to be that person who is always complaining, and, more than that, I wanted to feel differently. So I’ve decided to write…

Words

(a reprint from 2002) The clearest, most concise communication is that which is given energetically, either through the fourth or sixth chakra. Words are, for the purposes of communication with others, imprecise and do not translate abstract concepts well. Spoken word was created not for the purpose of communicating at all. It is a tool…

My Work in the Dreamtime

I’ve taken to a new bedtime ritual. Once I’m settled in to bed, I do a little bit of research on a totem or deity or something similar, programming my focus toward that subject. It keeps my brain occupied as my body relaxes, gives me something to do while I’m getting sleepy, and gives me…
