More on healing the web of life

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.

(Please get help from a therapist, counselor, healer or friend for working with difficult emotions)

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 hateful one.

Ask for help as you 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 enormously and creates a healthier and stronger web for all beings.

Dear ones, I ask you to pay attention to the magnificent web of life. Do not take this daily miracle for granted! Turn down the volume on your ear buds, close down Facebook, turn off the news and tune into your heart and body, your spirit. Tune into the music, the voices of nature.

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!

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.

Leadership

If your leaders guide you astray – away from what you know to be right and true and good, you must let your heart guide you instead. Trust yourself!

When your leaders are mistaken, misguided, ill informed, emotionally stunted, you yourself must step up and be a force for good in the world. You don’t have to shine on a national stage, run for elected office, or head a large corporation to make a positive difference in the web of all things.

Grandmother Cottonwood, winter afternoon

I ask you to allow yourself to become a force for good and kindness, guided by your heart and by Source in your own life, within your own sphere of influence.

If you feel alone in your beliefs and actions, hold fast! Do the right thing and you will respect yourself and gain confidence. Others of like mind will be drawn to you. And you will create ripples of compassion and loving kindness in the web of life.

The ripples you create flow from the center of your spirit and touch all things on the energetic level, the level of spirit. All creatures benefit from your heart’s wisdom and your wise and kind actions.

Let your guidance and leadership come from within, from the depths of your heart and spirit. Let Source be your partner, and you will make the world a kinder safer place.

Web of life

My bark may feel cold and rough to you this winter’s day. Do not let this fool you, for my heart is warm and welcoming! 

I may seem silent, separate, apart.  Do not be fooled, for in my own way I am fully engaged in the web of life on this planet!

I may seem irrelevant to your human world, your worries, concerns, and solutions to your problems.  Do not be fooled, for my energy interweaves in intricate patterns  with that of all living things including humans.  We are in this together!

My quiet existence matters in the web of life. My existence creates a ripple and a powerful filament of love in the tapestry of the universe.  I belong here!

I want you to know each thought, word and feeling of yours has energetic reality that affects the web of life, just as my tree energy does. You make a difference ! You matter and you belong here! 

You don’t have to move mountains or bring peace to the Middle East. Simply tune your thoughts and feelings gradually to happiness and joy and kindness and laughter a little more often.

Turn off those news programs and avoid those people that manipulate you into anger and fear.   Guide your time and energy to uplifting, soul satisfying activities, thoughts, words, beliefs, friends, and entertainment.

In this way you will affect the web of life for good!  You are a creator whether you know it or not!

Take your job seriously!  You and I, along with all living beings on earth reweave the web of life with each thought, feeling, and action.

Expand your awareness

When you expand your awareness to include the spirits in all things, the rocks, trees, clouds, insects, plants and animals, the land you call home, the other people around you,  you expand your experience of life.

You expand your understanding of the oneness of all things  You see life from a different perspective like a hawk soaring overhead, or a snake gliding across rough pavement or through the tall grass.

Little brown snake

When you expand your awareness to know what hawk knows, you will feel and know the warm updraft under your wide open wings, effortlessly holding you aloft above the immense landscape where you make your living.

When you expand your awareness to know what snake knows, you drink in the earthy smell of soil, dead leaves, and rough pavement beneath your belly, you sense the texture and solidity of the ground, you feel the stiff stems of grass anchored to the earth as you glide past.

When you expand and allow yourself to know these things and to experience them, you will gain respect for all living creatures and the great web of life that sustains us.

Always remember this!  Nothing can be separated from the whole. 

When you expand your awareness, you will know your place in this great web of life- that you belong to the earth.  I ask you to use your free will and human agency to celebrate and protect the great tapestry of creation of which we are all a part!

Two webs

Billions of roots hold the soil. The multitude of grasses, the flowering beauties that return year after year, those rooted organisms you call weeds, the magnificent trees of our beloved planet all anchor our soil, forming a vast web of interconnection…  Call it love!

DSCN5280 (480x640)

Honeysuckle and ash tree

The web of roots anchoring this abundant life mirrors the energetic web of all things, invisible to most, yet permeating and connecting all things in exquisite perfection. No word or thought or feeling of any human can be separated from this web. They are the stuff of the web.

The energetic vibrations of your feelings, thoughts and words announce you and create an energy pattern, unique to you. Others might not see this, but they can feel and sense it.

Your energies and vibrations join with those of others and yet others, and still more, creating intricate patterns and possibilities one alone could not dream of.

Just as the mighty roots of a cottonwood intertwine and interweave with the roots of other trees, grasses, weeds, and wildflowers, so do your thoughts and words interweave with the feelings, thoughts, and words of others. In this way, you are all connected at the energetic level…   Some call it spirit.

Shape your future!

My dear ones, this is a time of choice.

Do you choose to live in fear? Do you choose to do what is healthy for mother earth and all life? Do you choose to make those minute adjustments to your life that will result in better health, happier relationships, feelings of peace and well-being?

Crow in late winter

Set your intention each day. Start small and build on that.

You are the master of your life. Own it!

You choose and command the energies that move through you.

Get comfortable with that!

Your intentions and words have power beyond your ability to fathom. They interact with the web of all things, weaving and creating your future. Every thought, word, decision, choice and belief emanates from you and helps to shape the web of all things.

Align them with your dreams to shape your amazing future.

You have more power than you have been led to believe!

Stand in your light

You are meant to shine! Have you allowed your light to shine at its fullest power? Do you feel threatened by punishment or suppression when you allow the fullness of your being to be expressed?

dscn4223-640x612

Grandmother Cottonwood and sunlight

Do you obscure your light due to bad habits left over from childhood? Fear? Unwillingness to outshine others? Is your light dimmed by clutter and stuck emotions?

Once and for all, the world and all living creatures need everyone of us shining and radiating our brightest light at full power! The earth and web of all things will be transformed and strengthened.

Stand tall! Stand in the spotlight of your true purpose here. Resolve to move toward clarity, grace and full expression of your light.

As a child of earth, you are also a child of light.
