The Stories We Tell Ourselves

Posted By Ara on Nov 28, 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.

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.

You Are Enough

Posted By Ara 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.

Connection

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.

The Dream Hangover

"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

Snake Woman

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.

Do Not Erase The Mother

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.

So. We have the Sun in Libra and the Moon in Aries which gives us a lot tension right now, especially with the Eclipses and Mercury Retrograde, leaving for a lot of impulsive and impatient energy right now clashing with the balance that usually occurs between these two,
