"To see those eyes looking back at you,
as eyes should see you at last,
seeing you, as you always wanted to be seen,
seeing you, as you yourself
had always wanted to see the world."
- David Whyte
As I grow wiser and refine my life and work in more alignment with life force, the invitation is to commune with the World in its fullness. The world wants to be seen and witnessed. Following this invitation, I am offering my gift of seeing - whether it is through photography, visual storytelling, hosting Council, envisioning an event or one-on-one Presence Sessions - what is, what could be, what wants to happen.
I am here to live courageously, aroused by the longing of the heart.
What if I can deeply listen to the silence of things,
look in the eye of the yet unseen,
what if I hold the kind of faith sustained by the Source and Great Mystery,
who would I be? what could I create?
My personal resolution is that, as I cannot expect only the men to heal the wounded masculine, I cannot also demand that the men embody the healthy, mature masculine on their own. As a woman, I have personal work to do to reclaim an inner King - the mature and responsible masculine in service of life - and as a human collective we have work to do together to call back this magnificent energy back to its power.
As much as it is a time of darkness and destruction, it is also a time of creation and new life. It is a moment like no other with so much wanting to be born through our wombs, hands and hearts. When the external reality falls apart and there is not much to hold on, the only place to generate life force from is within, so let us do that.
There is a possibility though, of being remade by the sheer force that we are undone by. It is that very presence that sits heavily on my chest and pushes me over the edge into the abyss which then also lifts me up to the heights of illumination and inspiration about my existence and meaning of being here now. The depths I allow myself to travel seem to be the springboard from which I lean and leap forward and onward.
I am being initiated into relating to fear - perhaps the most common and pervasive emotion in the collective right now - and how to transmute it into an ally. I am not sure if the point is to become fearless but rather to learn to live generously, creatively and compassionately despite the fear. And to be in dialogue with this strange ally without losing touch with one's center and connection with the Sacred.
Malleable...malleable. It kept resonating in my being, this simple word. Here's an invitation, I thought. All this pressure I feel is simply benevolent life force shaping me into a finer form, hidden beneath the layers of everything that is keeping me small and separate.
Have I not prayed for my liberation? to heal the wound of separation?
I have, so many times.
Here, it's happening now...
What happened, and what is happening in your life is your specific recipe for Life, your particular invitation to wake up and come Home, your unique path through the magical terrain, your peculiar way of serving your community and Life.
So, take back the light today
but do not condemn the darkness
it is the holy womb
where your light will be tended
like the immaculate child.
The power of One is upon us.
This is the story of how I fell in love with the Earth.
or perhaps, how I woke up and re-membered this great Love of mine...how She welcomed me back, as a compassionate mother, and love me awake, presented Herself to me with so much beauty that my heart broke open to Her infinite Love.
This is one of the most beautiful stories of my human journey.
To the Earth I belong and this is a Love story...
let me be humble again,
let me release my tears
for thousands of years
on this sacred soil
to grow new seeds of healing and forgiveness.
It's not too far now,
the dawn is near, I feel the sun coming
in the darkest, coldest passage.
Here, give me your hand,
raise your head and feel my touch,
we begin again,
today is the day we rise.
As we go through the turbulence and chaos of our times, I hear the call to be present, to be a witness, to feel and express, to dream and envision, to give my gift to the shift, to love Life in its wholeness and glory. I feel more inspired and empowered than ever to step into being a loving, creative, regenerative Life force and I invite you to join me.
"We are made for these times. We are here to meet this curve of evolution. We are ready."
I hear from my global network. From this illuminated web and the vast ocean of ebb and flow I am witnessing an activation and alignment of body, mind and soul, a straightening of the collective spine, a saying YES and willingness to cross our own boundaries of separation to far more scary places within and outside. I hear this like a collective hum, a song emerging from the depths of the Earth through our voices; a common prayer rising from the unified field of our collective memory and Life longing to find its most beautiful, creative and wholesome expression.
