Censorship of the Divine Feminine

Censorship of the Divine Feminine


Posted By on Nov 29, 2014

I am sitting here this morning sipping spice chai tea and mulling over my 3 day ban from Facebook. For what, you may ask? A nipple. One of the pictures on my page showed a harmless, barely visible to even me, blurred out with color-swipes photograph of a woman, and someone was offended by this offensive graphic. Really?   One of my biggest lifelong, all-time beefs is censorship. Not only is it 2014 and really, is censorship still...

The Call to Change the World

The Call to Change the World


Posted By on Nov 28, 2014

There is a sacred simplicity born of not wanting others to hurt, to feel alone or to be sad. Empathy has moved the deep ocean within me in ways that made me want to reach out and change the world no matter how seemingly impossible a task we are taught this can be by society. We are after all just a small pebble in a giant pond, who are we to think we can change the tides of the world?   The reality is that we have never been more...

The Stories We Tell Ourselves

The Stories We Tell Ourselves


Posted By on Nov 27, 2014

There is great power in the words that we speak. In how we define who we are, those that share our world with us and our paths in this life. We can get caught up in the stories that we tell ourselves. Some of them have gone on too long and the well worn pages get harder and harder for us to turn as they crumble in our fingers. We no longer resonate with them but don’t take the time to question what passages we are repeating....

Body Shame
& the Divine Feminine

What is a maiden, mother or crone “supposed” to look like? I hear it and it makes my head spin, the judgement passed on women by other women. “She can’t be that age, must be Botox/Photoshop/unicorn rainbow placentas.” “She must have had work done.” “That must be some good make up.”   She’s not old enough to be this, she’s too old to do that, or she’s too young to be that. Why? Who told you that? Do you really believe that?...

Cutting the threads

We get used to the way things are. Humans are great like that. We can adapt to anything making things fit that we never dreamed before we could. Stitching together remnants and bits and pieces, fabricating a patchwork to make it function and convince ourselves that the tatters aren’t there and that THIS TIME the seams won’t split when we exhale greatly. We can tell ourselves anything and convince us of it. There is a place...

You Are Enough

You Are Enough


Posted By on Nov 23, 2014

I get so tired of it. The “this is how you should look/feel/live/have” etc game. You need to stay over here in this societal approved place of perceived achievement. Like we need to drag around the skeletons of what we looked like or where we were before like some prize of where we used to stand. You might as well cut up a chunk of earth you once walked on and put it on your wall. You’re not there. You’re here....

The Dream Hangover

The Dream Hangover


Posted By on Nov 18, 2014

“Still tangled in the fibered web of dreamland, the nightscape shroud of mist weighs heavily on my eyes lending a foggy quality to the daylight hours. The Full Moon and her illumination, her sight, her visions she lends to us. I wonder if she smiles at the visions she shows the hearts of her children while they lay in bed wrapped in her light” – Ara   Dreamland calls and off we fly into some secret night sky. Or...

Connection

Connection


Posted By on Nov 18, 2014

I used to feel that being from a small place was intrinsically linked to feeling like you didn’t fit in. You were different. You didn’t quite connect in the basic ways that everyone wants to feel connected, the way we long for it like we humans do; the acceptance of all that we are.   Wandering around I quickly realized, this is not limited only to small areas scattered here and there. This was worldwide....

  Scorpio season is a time of death. The Earth is making ready for the time of darkness, going within, the leaves have fallen to the ground and the once lush trees are barren in the cold wind. We too make ready for the coming of the darkness, shedding what is no longer needed in preparation for the this deep time of the year. There is so much that is called onto the chopping block during this season, the very balance of what we...

Do Not Erase  The Mother

Do Not Erase
The Mother


Posted By on Nov 3, 2014

Do not erase the mother From which we all are born; She is the cup that nurtures us. She is the womb that carries us. She is the strength that sustains us. Do not censor her, Do not shun her; To do this is to censor and shame your own birth, To take the life-giving sustenance from your own lips. Embrace the mother; Let her be free to feed her children; Let her be free to nurture the world. Let her be free to teach us Do not erase the...
