Do you live by the clock?

What strange ideas you humans choose to rule your lives. For example, the group-think/ hypnosis of the clock; turning it backward or forward an hour twice a year, pretending it won’t affect your body, mind and spirit.

Those in charge make ridiculous rules regarding clocks that do not factor in your true nature, your needs for consistent patterns and rhythms to life, your body’s need to respond to light and dark.

The clock at first was a human created tool and method for dividing time into segments. Now is is a way to control your seconds, moments, your hours and days when you eat, work sleep…

Alarming clock

You must realize that your bodies are intricate systems designed to respond effortlessly to light and dark and every nuance in between. You begin to stir and wake as the sun rises, increase your activity as the light fills the sky, you grow sleepy at dusk, then sleep deeply during the dark hours of night.

Your body’s internal light sensors are closely attuned to the brightness of the sky, the seasons, the turning of the year.

These silly rules of time keeping invented by someone without your best interest at heart would override thousands of centuries of living by the sun, your natural body clock. You would give this up and allow the ticking little mechanism that measures out the minutes to keep you corralled and domesticated.

Humans have allowed those in charge to turn the population away from their true nature as children of the sun and moon, light and dark, attuned to the seasons, trusting the body, living in harmony with the larger patterns and rhythms of the earth, or our solar system, our moon and the stars.

All I ask is why?

Perhaps the clock can be a kind of helpful tool in your life as you trust your body to master time, light and dark. Allow the clock to serve you, not the reverse.

How do you use technology?

Dear ones, do you use your technology mindfully in support of your highest good, your health and wholeness?

Or does your glowing little screen rule your life and keep you corralled and dependent? Does it limit your freedom?

Some of the human created reality blasted into your brain each day is meant to get you hooked and addicted to the content others have curated and chosen for you to digest and believe. I ask you for your health and well being to become an expert at discernment, to choose wisely what you will consume.

Think about this. When feelings of self worth come to you from the outside in, they are not genuine, not the real thing. True self worth and autonomy grow organically from the center of your being in partnership with source and radiate outward to enrich the web of life and all beings.

The phony, the fake, that which is chosen to root into your mind and addict you is not in your highest good. The words images are chosen just for you to make you feel insecure, to make you want things, to limit your creativity, to make you click and spend, to make you forget your true self and to make you believe this fake reality this phony feeling of connection is better than the real thing.

In your true and deep and abiding heart, in some corner of your mind your intuition knows who you really are and what is right for you. Do not sell or hand over your most precious gift for anything!

Use your technology wisely and well. You are the boss of your life! Make technology your servant.

The river speaks

I am ceaseless and timeless. I flowed past the camps of your ancestors in ancient times, and I flow now under the concrete and steel bridges of your streets and highways, between fields of corn and beans. I flow past the towns and factories through forests and wetlands.

Life flows endlessly here- always the same, always new and fresh.

I may change course over time, undercut and topple the tallest trees, cut through solid stone, shape and carve the landscape.

I carry much that you choose to discard, your pollution and garbage. It becomes part of me. Is this what you want?

I rise and flood in spring, after the long winter freeze, swelling and spreading expanding beyond my banks. I pick up speed and power.

Do not argue with a flooded river!

My ripples respond to the most delicate vibrations of wind and weather and light and water currents, to rumblings in the earth, the movements of the stars.

The sun reflects and creates sparkles and dancing bands of light in my depths. You might sit near me and meditate on my hypnotizing moving light and water show. Find peace here.

Sunlit ripples on shallow water

I provide a home for the water dwellers, the fish of all descriptions, crustaceans, insects, the tadpoles and frogs, turtles, food for the fur-bearers and birds, a place of thirst quenching for all.

I grind and polish rough stones to smooth. I grind and polish smooth stones to sand. I compress sand into sandstone. Do not ask me how or why. It is in my nature to do so.

I run under the open sky at night, only the stars and moon lighting me in the uninhabited places. I move under the earth in complete darkness, carving the structure of this planet into caves of great complexity and beauty.

I am the river of life that flows through your ancient memory into your present and on toward the future.

It is my purpose to collect the waters of the earth and channel them effortlessly, to cleanse and shape the earth, to reach oneness with the great waters at the end of my journey… which is only the beginning.

Have you been tamed?

You humans have built an amazing civilization. But I wonder, Dear Ones, does it lift you up in ways that feed your spirit and serve your soul?

You all have within you the energetic memories of a time when humans were in tune with the spirits of the land, connected to nature, free to choose their path and direction, when they lived a simpler life and danced around a fire deep into the night.

Inuksuit

Let me be frank. You have been domesticated and tamed. Of course at first your need for domestication was about survival on this planet with unpredictable weather, predatory animals, unstable food sources, sudden accidents…

And now you have these basics, you have evolved systems of farming and food storage, medical care, learned to keep yourselves safe, the dangerous animals at bay…

But now what? Have things gone too far?

Have you sold your souls and your autonomy for the convenience of a sleek little phone, 2 cars in the garage, a paid off mortgage the best schools for your kids?

I’m telling you, you can reclaim your wild spirit, your deep soul that is your birthright, while retaining what is good and useful in your civilizations for your survival on the planet and a thriving life.

What is your definition of a thriving life?

If you are restless, if you feel you are missing that deep part of you, that something precious has gone, learn to tap into your true and untamed and fierce heart. Do not give yourself away or betray this part of you for love or money or the illusion of safety.

This inner fire is your true inheritance from those ancestors of the deep past who survived, from those who painted on torch-lit cave walls, who learned to speak to spirits and survive in harmony with our Earth’s rhythms and cycles, who found life a sacred trust, a gift of the ancestors.

Reclaim this deep abiding center of yourselves by living consciously. You get to choose what to keep, what to let go of in your life.

You alone can discern what makes your heart sing, what causes dullness and heaviness in your spirit, what lifts you up, what drags you down.

Live as though every moment is sacred, every living thing is holy, every person precious, with your wild untamed heart and spirit at the center of your beautiful life

Trust yourself

Did your parents, teachers, aunts & uncles, grandparents ever encourage you to trust yourself? To trust the knowings of your heart, the inner hopes and dreams for your life, your intuitions, and instincts about other people, your certainty about what activities you wanted to pursue, what your inborn interests and talents were?

Grandmother Cottonwood

Or, were you told to be nice, to smile when you didn’t want to, to fit in and not rock the boat, to worry about what the neighbors might think, to suck it up and get along?

Dear ones, if so, you were betrayed! Now it is time for you to reclaim and regain your own power, your trust in yourself and your intuitions, preferences, your inner knowings, your autonomy, your mastery of your life.

Begin little by little to tune into your inner voice, your wise and loving spirit, your indestructible soul and the wisdom and power of your heart.

You will find your truth within your heart, not outside yourself with any teacher, guru, mentor, parental figure.

Yes, parents teachers and mentors are needed at certain times in life, to help mirror the best in you, to help you learn skills and boundaries, to learn love, to keep you safe. The best of them assist you in learning to trust the innate wisdom of your heart and soul and tap into your inner power and riches.

Look within and know that you can trust the knowings of your heart mind and soul.

Trusting yourself is loving yourself.

Clear the clutter!

Are you cluttered energetically? This might feel like heaviness around your heart or gut, dullness or fuzziness of the mind, sluggishness, a deadening of the emotions.

You might feel lethargic. You might feel as though you are not making progress in life, that you are stuck, spinning your wheels.

Energetic clutter can consist of emotions that you do not want to feel or acknowledge, thoughts that reel around and around in your mind with no end, a sense of disconnection from body or spirit.

Dear ones, I am here to tell you you can find healing as you work to clear the energetic debris that has built up in your energy atmosphere over your lifetime.

If you are not feeling well, please ask your Doctor to check for physical illnesses – take care of that first. Then if you feel the need of more help with overwhelming emotions as you begin to clear the clutter of heart and mind, please seek out the help of a therapist or healer.

You can clear the accumulated clutter of a lifetime and let the energy of your life flow more smoothly and easily. Start small just as you might start decluttering a single drawer or closet in your home. Build on your success.

Let yourself feel these emotions that have been cluttering your precious moments and little by little you will heal and your life will become a more joyful and peaceful experience.

The world needs you clear and focused, healthy and strong, sharing your gifts, allowing your light to shine as brightly as possible.

Survival

Rumors of the demise of Mother Earth have been greatly exaggerated. This planet will endure, she will continue spinning on her axis, orbiting the sun. Day will follow night. The sun will rise in the East. The ancient cycle of seasons will endure, the moon will wax, become full, wane, then begin again in darkness.

Full Moon

The ancient cycles will endure even if humans are no longer here to witness the beauty, to name the seasons, and study the stars

Humans are slowly committing suicide as they ignore the warning signs of the stressed and overtaxed environment and atmosphere. I ask you to slow down and listen to your Great Grandmother the Earth. Learn her language. Pay attention to her signs, symbols, her distress call.

When you learn her language, the language of the web of life, you will learn the ancient ways of survival on this planet. You will learn to respect the amazing intelligence built up over eons of time within every living thing and every living system.

Tuning in to the messages and intricate interconnections of the web of life and hearing the voices of all living things here on this planet still means survival.

Technology in your pocket, shiny objects, expensive homes will not save or buffer you from the reality that you are a part of this web of life, a part of nature. We survive together!

Take action to divest yourselves and your human cultures of greed and corruption. Stop over-consuming our precious resources and hoarding wealth for only a few. These things damage the web of life.

Learn to use only what you need. Learn to be humble. Learn to love each step you take on Mother Earth, each breath you take into your miraculous body, each beat of your heart.

Wake up and embrace your precious life on this precious Earth!

Choose life! Slow down, live simply.

Reflections

I see and feel failing ash trees. They are losing vitality, declining and dying as an out-of-control insect invades and destroys with no boundaries, no sense that when it kills the host trees it will no longer be able to survive.

This insect survives now, but will ultimately destroy its own home and food supply.

Dead tree

This is nature reflecting the human state of mind and state of health. This no boundaries, destroy everything in your path dynamic takes place on a global scale, as Humans declare war on others and destroy their own habitat with little regard for the long term consequences.

Nature also reflects the human state of mind in the weather…

Do you store up toxic and stormy emotions in your personal atmosphere, letting them build into cyclones, tornadoes, earthquakes, hurricanes of tantrums and violence? Are you or those in your family or city easily triggered into fury?

I’m here to tell you that you can clear yourselves and release the clouds as they accumulate and before they become heavy and ominous with many layers of fear and anger.

Heavy clouds

You can learn to calm and clear yourself before the emotional storms overtake you. Ask for help if it feels too difficult, too overwhelming.

Yes, I understand you don’t want to… think you can’t… prefer to be in denial… don’t want to do the work… are scared to do it…don’t have the money…don’t have the time…insert your habitual excuse here…

Let me tell you that your healing matters not only to you, but to your family, your city, your planet. The actions you take, the decisions you make will affect and reflect in our Earth for years to come.

Will you choose healing, or will you choose to be paralyzed by fear?

When you are able to face the facts and difficulties in your life head on, with courage and tenacity, when you are able to clear and heal your emotions and learn to deal with them in a healthy way, your life will improve dramatically, your health will improve, you will begin to love your life once again!

Message from Grandmother Cottonwood

The Earth and those around you will reflect your new clarity and health!

Heal yourself, Heal the Earth.

Root and Ground Yourself

Have you forgotten your roots? No, this isn’t about your human family. The roots I speak of go deeper into the earth, anchoring you to your home.

They anchor and connect you like my deep and strong cottonwood roots anchor my massive trunk and crown so that I can stand tall and thrive here.

Grandmother Cottonwood

You are meant to live here on this planet, energetically rooted and connected to the loving energy of the earth.

Picture a field of prairie grass with deep roots that penetrate the soil and cling tenaciously to life. The deep roots draw up sustenance from many feet below the surface, anchoring their tall stems leaves and seed heads.

Prairie grass

You too have the ability to send your energetic roots deep into the soil, pulled down from your feet without effort to the magnetic core of the earth. You are then able to draw in the earth energy that you need to live fully in your body.

Yes, I speak of concepts invisible to your naked eyes. Come out of your head, out of your logical zone and try this. Try living fully in your body, feeling the sensations in your feet legs, hips, your core, your heart, your center – all of you.

See how you feel, not how you think you should feel when you visualize your energetic roots. If you feel uncomfortable or scared to live in your body, find a healer or therapist to help you.

Living fully in your body is the gift you’ve been bequeathed as a human being.

When you are deeply rooted, you are more flexible and resilient and able to weather life’s storms with grace. You can recover more easily from heartache and trauma and injury and find new ways to grow and thrive.

When you allow yourself to live fully in your body, when you surrender to gravity to knowing this planet is your true home and will be for countless lifetimes, when you know that as mother earth thrives, you and all living ones thrive, you will feel at home, safe cared for, connected.

When you plug your body’s energy from your feet into the energy of our Earth, you will know a new sense of peace and belonging.

6 Easy ways to ground yourself:

  • Walk barefoot on the earth.
  • Lay on the Earth.
  • Hug a tree.
  • Visualize roots like tree roots going from your lower body feet and legs to the core of the earth. Breathe out stress, breathe in earth energy.
  • Rub the soles of your feet with a stainless steel spoon.
  • Massage your bare feet.

Web of creation

When life feels bleak and wintry, when your spark is extinguished your light clouded over, can you find in the innermost part of yourself the quiet voice that asks you to “trust”?

Your higher self asks you to trust that you are supported by the web of life, to trust that there is a wisdom larger than you can imagine that hears your longings, knows your heart, that weaves all possibilities and prayers into the great tapestry of life on this planet.

Goldenrod

The web of life creates the fabric of your experiences from the raw material of your thoughts your expressions of language emotion and art, your actions, your beliefs.

This is the language of creation! This is how you ask for what you desire!

So learn to trust life. Learn to channel your thoughts, words, creations, feelings, and beliefs to reflect the life you desire.

Even when times feel tough, remember that you can learn to see your life from a higher perspective, see the larger reality, the big patterns. Knowing this, you can learn to shift these patterns into alignment with your deepest purpose.

Colored maple leaves

The web of life has your back. It supports and creates the life you are asking for, building it with the energy of your thoughts, words and actions.
