You as humans are creatures of the light. But you need the dark to be healthy and thrive. You must create a balance.
First you must sleep in the dark, dreaming, recharging and renewing your bodies and minds, then waking and soaking in the light, acting, getting things done, creating the life you dream of.
Within this balance of light and dark, action and rest, you find your sweet spot so you can create and sustain a thriving life.
I as a towering cottonwood tree must find my balance between spring growth and winter rest, between roots and branches.
I would not want to topple over in a windstorm for lack of roots, top heavy with huge and heavy limbs. I would not want to waste my energy sending cottonwood sized roots deep and wide into the soil to support a small and modest crown the size of an apple tree.
To be healthy, the Earth and her atmosphere must strike a balance between hot and cold, wet and dry, storm and calm, ebb and flow, flood and drought, summer and winter, health and sickness…
All living creatures, the Earth among us, must find our balance, our sweet spot for thriving and living in our world of cycles and seasons, of fear and love.
Those who pay attention with hearts as well as minds will know and feel a change in the weather, a shift in the air. The greater heat in summer, the northward migration of warm loving species, the wetter snows, the thawing ice, the balmy winters, the unsettled weather as the earth warms.
Growing things, winged creatures, 4 legged ones are stressed by this disruption to our age old fabric of existence, the climate in which we have all learned to thrive over eons of time.
Our atmosphere is heavy with exhaust of human creation beyond her limits and capacity to cleanse.Dear ones it will take your collective wisdom will and heart to cease the pollution of your planet; to clear the air, purify the water, to bless the earth once again with a healthy balance of interests between all living things.
What good are your billions of dollars when the earth herself can no longer sustain the life we have known for millennia?
Life itself is the prize. Preserve and protect and nurture all living things.
Heal the web of life! Begin the healing within yourself.
Thunder in the air – rolling waves of sound felt by all living things.
Summer clouds rolling in
Those with eyes and those without sense lightning arc across the sizzling sky. Even the tiniest vibrations of sound and light energy reach my roots as they ripple through the earth, cleansing all in their path.
The deafening sound, flashes of light, rain, and wind of a summer storm roll through clearing the air, washing the land, every leaf on my crown, every blade of grass in the woods and meadow. I quicken to the vibration of thunder, the fiery lighting that seeks the earth, often through my cottonwood kin.
Bring it on! It is the power of our amazing earth’s atmosphere, visible and audible and palpable. I thrill to the storms that sweep across this valley and set my crown shimmering and dancing to the vibrations of thunder and the rising wind.
I feel in my roots and crown the stillness before the storm, the sudden crashes of lightning. The jagged daggers arcing through the air, charging it with healing power and clearing all nonsense, all fog, all dust, all that is ready to be released.
Can you sense when a storm is brewing? Can you feel it in your body? You have experienced this powerful unfolding drama in every lifetime you’ve ever lived. The ancient thrill of thunder from before time began – the memory lies deep within your cells.
The storm obliterates the excess, leaving us fresh, clear, and sparkling, ready for what is to come. Bringing clarity.
