Listen to the Earth

Put your ear to the ground. What do you hear? In what language does our Earth speak to you?

Can you hear the hundreds of thousands of earthworms turning and fertilizing the soil, carrying out their singular and necessary purpose in the web of life?

Can you hear the billions of roots of grasses, trees, wild plants and “weeds” food plants and flowers of all descriptions, reaching deep, stretching down, absorbing water and nutrients?

Deep rooted prairie grasses

Can you hear the fur bearing creatures in their dark and cool burrows, the snakes gliding almost silently along the Earth through the tall grass? Can you hear the nearby stream flowing quietly?

Can you hear the millions of ants creating their underground cities, marching in unison, intent on their building project, living their lives, feeding their families?

Can you hear the underground rivers, streams and aquifers, the water fresh and cool, lapping in dark rock shelters? Can you hear the slow dripping and dropping of lime infused water from ancient stalactites in secret caves so far beneath the surface of the Earth?

Can you hear the deep hum and vibrations of the bedrock, the foundation of ancient stones that supports our home?

Stone cairn

Can you hear the humming, the sound of creation as your ear tunes into the subtler frequencies of the Earth’s spinning, her movement in space?

Can you hear the deep and awesome harmony of creation? All is one great symphony of sound and vibration.

The earth speaks to us in her language of stone, metal, water, fire, air, soil, seasons, night and day, and abundant life of all descriptions.

Underlying all on our Earth is the sound of creation, the great hum.

Time to clean up our act!

To heal the web of life on Earth, we must all clean up our act! Individually and collectively.

Begin within your heart.

Do the difficult yet vital work of healing your own hurt and bitterness, sadness and grief so you can be clear and help lead the way forward, be part of the solution, be a weaver of the web of life.

Learn to feel and know your anger and express it in healthy ways that will fuel you to your highest good and create true justice. When anger is expressed as hurtful rage at others and rotting hatred, great damage is done to the intricate web of creation and will come back to harm the rageful one.

Pay attention to the magnificent web of life, know your vital place in it. Turn down the volume on your ear buds, close down Facebook, turn off the news for a time, and tune into your heart and body, your spirit.

Ask for help to move toward wholeness, otherwise known as healing. You are a powerful and vital element in the web of creation. Your healing and moving toward the light and releasing anxiety and fear benefits you beyond measure and creates a healthier and stronger web for all beings.

Beware of those in power who try to control through hate and fear and convenient lies. This damages the web of all things and the trust and connections between people. The brokenness these leaders bring to the world may take generations to repair. Choose your leaders well!

Don’t let large corporations manipulate you, addict you, and steal your privacy so you become a product in the wheel of e-commerce to be used and discarded when you no longer click or buy. This harms our world and destroys trust.

You are a vital thread in the web of all things! You belong here on this planet at this time! The healthier, the more clear, the stronger you are, the more you can access your own inner power, the brighter your light can shine, the stronger and more resilient the web of life will become!

The time to clean up our act is now!

Thoughts, words, actions, purpose.

Dear one, have you gone off script, wandered away from your chosen path, slipped and fallen away from the dreams of your youth?

You can get yourself back on the path to the thriving life you dream of. You can right your course, re-calibrate your position and reorient your life once again to what really matters to you.

Begin by discerning what is most important to you, what you will focus on with your heart and spirit and passion, something that will tap into your talents and skills, that will be of benefit to you and will bless this Earth and all creatures. Something you will never tire of throughout your life, something that floats your boat, makes you happy, spins your top!

Now is the the time to step out into the light, to take a stand for what you wish to create in your life and the lives of your children and grandchildren, the web of life on Earth.

Every thought, action , every word you generate reverberates and ripples through the web of life.

When your thoughts words and actions line up with your dreams, you become a powerful creator.

So, be mindful of your thoughts. Do you diminish yourself or others in your mind? There is powerful energy in your thoughts, They are the precursor to creation! Begin to pay attention and gradually shift them to reflect what you want in life, what you want for others, the best of you.

Choose your words with care for they carry the energy to harm or heal. Your words are powerful. You can choose to hurt or elevate others or yourself with words. You can use words to gradually create the life you want or keep yourself and others small and boxed in by hurtful language.

Let your actions line up with the true and deep needs of your spirit. Let your physical presence and the expressions of your body carry out your soul’s purpose, to make it manifest here on this planet.

Think about your purpose here, in this body at this time, in this place. Are you digging deep into the vein of gold that lies under the surface appearances of life? Are you listening to the whisperings of your heart and spirit, the hidden treasure deep down among the bedrock or do you see only the surface appearance of your inner landscape, unaware of the riches at your center?

When you long to connect with your true purpose, you can make it happen. With practice, desire, persistence, you too can tap into the amazing treasure at the core of your being where your purpose and the source of all things intersect.

When you know your soul’s purpose and open up to spirit, you tap into abundance beyond measure.

When you know your own wholeness, when you become a weaver of the web of life, your very presence will be a blessing to this Earth.

Healing the web of life

The web of life that has existed since before the Earth whirled into being has been weakened by human wars, torn by pollution, worn thin by widespread human anxiety, and broken in places by acts of violence.

We rooted and wild creatures are at the mercy of human behavior, the sometimes out of control egos, the mindless lashing out at others, the hurt flung out at random into the world, thinking that will make things better, but only adding to the garbage pile of ugliness that hurts all beings by damaging the precious web of life on which we all depend.

To renew our priceless web, we must work in harmony and peace with all beings, co-existing with our Earthly neighbors to heal ancestral wounds and resentments that keep us stuck, to face and reweave the patterns that cause resentment, war, greed, and violence.

Amazing spider web

I feel hopeful that we natives of planet Earth, humans, plants, one-celled beings, animals, insects, fish, arachnids, birds, all together can reweave the amazing web of life that sustains us here on our blue-green planet. Every living being including every human being who is able must step up and do our part.

Dear humans, I ask you to clean up your act now as we begin this necessary work of planetary healing. Bring in leaders at all levels who have a heart instead of a vast emptiness at their center that can never be filled.

Instead of leaders with inflated egos and mean spirits, choose those who set the example of compassion, human understanding, those who know that true power comes from within, from connection and common ground, not from a nuclear weapon. Let these compassionate and courageous new leaders inspire you!

The web still holds strong, even with the damaged and weakened places, for the power of love and connection and peace are stronger and more resilient than fear and pettiness and hate and war.

The web of life endures.

Heal yourself, heal the web of life

In freeing and healing yourself from unhealthy relationships, patterns, beliefs, and situations, you free others. In the web of life, all things, all beings are connected.

In this way miracles happen, coincidences occur beyond your awareness, without your conscious participation.

Set your course for health of mind body and spirit, then trust and allow the mystery to unfold for your highest good and the good of all beings.

Amazing spider web

Set your healing intention into motion, follow the instructions of compassionate helping spirit guides and helpers, and ask for more guidance.

Ask for spiritual guidance. Pay attention!!! Listen and act with integrity. This is all you have to do.

(True spiritual advice will never hint at or ask you to hurt yourself or another, will never ask you to curse anyone, will never advocate hatred or violence.)

When you are compelled to heal and free yourself from unhealthy situations and patterns, you are regaining your power, autonomy, life force, and vitality.

When you free yourself you unlock what may be many lifetime of enchantment. Then like Sleeping Beauty, you wake up the potential and renew the life energy that has been dormant in you

When you do the sometimes lonely and often difficult work of healing by moving closer and closer to your own pure spirit, your own soul, healing your wounded heart and psyche, reweaving the hurt, making yourself whole again, you send ripples of well being and freedom throughout the web of all things, making those broken places stronger and more resilient. Creating wholeness.

Red wing blackbird, bare branches

Through you, others are set free as well if it is their soul level wish. You cannot control the ripples of the web, you cannot control who receives healing. These assignments must remain a mystery to you while you are still in a body. You can only work on behalf of yourself and do what is right for you.

So much is beyond your knowing and control as a human being in a body. Surrender to the mystery!
