Forest – Breath

Your breathing is too shallow. Although it may feel natural, it is an unhealthy habit that causes this shortness of breath. When you subconsciously shorten your breath, no matter if this is habitual or triggered by some event or circumstance, it activates certain physiological signals that prepare your system for “fight or flight”. Another conditioned response to perceived danger is to hold your breath. This is your survival response, although it does not serve you to do so. So…breathe! Inhale deeply regardless of your concerns, worries, or problems: then let it go. Through prayer and action, we can express our gratitude to those tree beings for the many gifts they provide not the least of which is contributing to the very air we breathe. Things are different after you have a walk in the forest. So remember to breathe deeply to take in their medicine.

Rainbow – Blessings

The storm has passed, and it is time to enjoy the refreshing beauty of this cycle, even though it has been difficult to appreciate any sense of purposefulness in what your have endured lately. You can now, as they say, count your blessings. Do not just look at the “brighter side” adhering to some academic mantra that has no heart or depth, but do so slowly and with genuine gratitude that is expressed up close and personal. This ever-evolving process of Life itself is a blessing – an opportunity to exist as a human being on Earth. The planet is a beautiful garden, even if it does not always appear to be so. Sometimes it is only when you look back at a memory of an experience that you can truly see the blessings that have come from them. Bless your difficult or painful experiences, and let them go.

Iceberg – Submerged

Whatever you suppress or deny and attempt to keep out of conscious awareness will show up somehow and someway. These are your shadow aspects. At one time, you put them out of your consciousness for good reason, yet they remain constrained by shame and guilt. sometimes these submerged aspects of yourself are projected onto others so that they mirror those denied or suppressed parts of you and these characteristics when they are exhibited. Now is the time to allow these elements to surface and embrace them. They may make up some sort of self – expression, a secret dream you wish to accomplished, or even uglier aspects that you have submerged deep inside of you, this is your opportunity to pay attention to those things and welcome them to the family called “you”.

Gaia – Nurturing

Receiving can be a sacred act if your intention is to honor Spirit. It is as holy as giving when performed with a open heart. This is even truer when receiving much needed nurturing so let others give to you. It may be a stretch to do so at times because of childhood conditioning, but that habit can be overcome. Your wounds can be healed. One way to achieve this is to nurture yourself, and allow others to nurture you. Consider the actions you take that are self-nurturing. What comes to your mind when you really think about doing beneficial things for yourself? Set aside your ritualized habits and beliefs that restrict your pure act of allowing your body, heart, and soul to be nurtured. lie on the Earth and ask Gaia to rock you in her bosom as you breathe with her and relax into her loving care.

Full Moon – Completion

You can now take pleasure in knowing that whatever you have been working toward has now reached its culmination. It may have been a relatively brief cycle or a much more extensive one, yet regardless of the length of time, you have arrived at the stage of completion. Let yourself feel the contentment and satisfaction of this accomplishment. It is like when you take a deep breath and reach the point where your lungs are pleasantly full and body is ready to release that breath. It is important to not only enjoy this completion but also to let go and allow yourself to relax afterword, just like exhaling slowly and consciously. People are to eager to rush to the next item on the agenda without giving proper time and space to appreciating and honoring the natural cycle of release that follows a point of resolution. Give yourself that time to relax and rest before tackling Spirits next assignment,

Mountain – Strength

It makes no sense to deny the strength you have at the cost of allowing yourself to be reactive and subject to external influences far beyond what is healthy for you. Imagine yourself as a mountain of strength, solidly grounded in the Earth, your head held high as if you were touching the sky. Do so without straining, just as the mountain itself does not strain. Your current situation calls for you to be vigilant, but not to the point of fear or paranoia. Be that rock of strength that you are capable of becoming. Standing steady like a rock is what is called for at this time.

Shaman – Ancient Healing Wisdom

You have within you the blood of your ancestors. You are deeply connected to your lineage, the most immediate proof of that being the physical resemblance you have to your mother and father and perhaps even your grandparents. Yet beyond that , although unknown to your usual senses, you are connected to an ancestry that reaches back through the millennia. This is the time to call upon those ancestors, those who are of your bloodline as well as those ancient ones who have walked the land that you now walk. In many indigenous cultures, it is believed that the essence of your ancestors inhabits many of the physical aspects of the land. In other words, they are in the trees, the water, the air, the animals, the stones – their blood being very dirt and sand you tread upon. Next time you are outside, allow your senses to open to those ancestors who abide in the physical world. And anytime at all, allow your heart to open to those spirits to whom you are related to through your heredity and those to whom you are connected by virtue of the land upon which you live.

Fairies – Earth Magic

You have the same power available to you as the Fairies do. It starts with loving the Earth through your heartfelt gratitude and appreciation, but more important, through your actions. The Fairies can help you reconnect

in a more intimate way with Earth, and all they require is your willingness to pay attention to the trees and plant life around you and demonstrate your care. Whether you live in a small place or have an expanse of land, make it a point to be especially attentive to your surrounding vegetation. Plant something. Get your hands in the dirt and do so with love and enthusiasm. Every flower, tree or shrub you are tending is a living being, so treat each like you would a dear friend. Ask the Fairies to help you take care of these friends, and you will be rewarded many times over.

Whale – Breach

It is time to take a break! Not just a coffee break, but a respite from the usual environment you find yourself in. That trip you wanted to take? Go for it. Tired of being indoors? Make it a point to get outside. You have become so attached to your surroundings that you have created within them an illusion of safety, yet it is not these things that make you feel safe. Rather, the familiarity you have imbued in your surrounding have generated this false sense of security. Taking time away from the familiar is literally about changing your external environment in a significant way, such as doing something unusual or perhaps something you have always wanted to experience. Another perspective is breaking through the barrier of belief’s that have constricted you in any way from being who you truly are. This is your opportunity to do some intentional breaching of these through patterns which will open you to different worlds and perspectives.

Dawn – New Beginnings

When you witness the initial stages of dawn without the benefit of a clock or other timepiece, for awhile you may not be able to discern whether the sky is really lightening. The stars remain visible, and the shadows of the night still shape the landscape. It is that way with any new beginning, it is difficult to tell where the old ends and the new begins. Gradually, however, it becomes clear to your senses that the light is definitely increasing, and as you continue to observe, the world slowly wakes up, accompanied by all the sounds, smells and freshness associated with it. Soon the first glimmer of the sun shows. A new day has begun. This is a time to say farewell to the old and honor the new by releasing any self-imposed constraints or resistance to the truth that you know. This is your chance to develop that project you have been thinking about, embark on that adventure you have dreamed of going on, and take risks in initiating what your intuitive self has been telling you to do. As this prospect becomes increasingly visible and real, doubts and uncertainties may arise. But rest assured just as dawn inevitably turns into day, by heeding your inner guidance, you will succeed.

Childhood – Innocence

Innocence is not simply the lack of guilt or shame, but a quality in itself, one that you naturally possess when you first come into existence. There are challenges you have faced throughout life that have further shaped your personality and character. You have also likely encountered moments following a disappointment or loss when you turned sour or cynical, and no doubt have had times when layers of anger or fear blocked the flow of your vitality, your life force. Yet in spit of all this, there is a core of innocence that you can reawaken by releasing any shame and let it go so you can revisit that state of purity. Doing so helps you see every moment with fresh eyes and removes the filters that inhibit your light and love from coming forth. You truly are a child of God, so allow yourself to be that.

Iceberg – Submerged

Whatever you suppress or deny and attempt to keep out of conscious awareness will show up somehow and someway. These are your shadow aspects. At one time, you put them out of your consciousness for good reasons, yet they remain constrained by shame and guilt. Sometimes these submerged aspects of yourself are projected onto others so that they mirror those denied or suppressed parts of you and you may even harshly judge these characteristics when they are exhibited. Now is the time to allow these elements to surface and embrace them. They may makeup some sort of self expression, a secret dream you wish to accomplish, or even uglier aspects that you have submerged deep inside of you, this is your opportunity to pay attention to those thing and welcome them to the family called “you”.

Stone People – Vigilance

Remain vigilant at this time, but not out of fear. “Vigilant” simply means opening up your mind and senses to information as it is presented to you: through your eyes, ears, physical sensations, and detached thoughts. It is especially true in two main areas. First follow any guy feelings that tell you to be wary about someone or something. Second pay close attention to an important opportunity that presents itself, one that may enhance your life and the lives of others. Maintain your vigilance of the clues around you and inside of you. Assess what is emanating from your body, and then sort out any conditioned responses from what is purely instinctual. Examine the situation with heart, intuition, and mind in harmony, for this is how vigilance serves you. Detach, take a breath and stand tall in your stance.

Autumnal Equinox – Release

Now is the time to let anything in your life fall away that is no longer useful or needed for the emerging expression of who you are. Allow yourself to gradually shed what has become burdensome and no longer congruent with your soul’s purpose. Conserve you energy by allowing yourself more rest while at the same time making preparations for the winter season. Look especially at your material possessions and be brutally honest with yourself as you discern which of these can be given away or somehow released. Consider shedding relationships that have served their purpose and are no longer viable, as well as work or a job that has become devoid of interest and passion. With release comes a sense of being much lighter, just like the trees that openly bear their nakedness once their leaves have departed and give room for whatever new Life is ready to birth following a period of rest, quiet and gestation. So let go of whatever has outlived its purposefulness and trust that something else will take its place.

Meadow – Vulnerability

You are now in a place where you can take risks with your feelings, and even more important, take risks with the truth of who you are – the truth you know in your heart and soul. You no longer need to be subjected to your conditioned fears of letting others know who you really are. Yes others may judge, evaluate, criticize and perhaps even put you down. These are very real possibilities. Yet by trusting that you have the strength to deal with these reactions – rather than responding adaptively and always playing it safe – you can more confidently allow yourself to be vulnerable. Always holding back from expressing your truth can create an illusion of safety, but armed with your trust and your faith, you can choose to be vulnerable and share your authentic self with the world.

When this is happening, there is a synergy, a way that your life force is continually coming into balance with the forces of Nature. There is also a synergy between your spiritual awareness and your personal self, or ego. Be aware of the various idiosyncrasies of your ego, and do not take any of them too seriously. Know that your Higher Self is always looking out for your best interests. In this cycle, tune into that guidance.

Eagle – Communion

Whenever you experience a heartfelt communion with some physical expression of Life – plant, animal, human, or anything else – it is only then that you can truly feel how your life force is similar to the life force that is all around you. It is only a matter of the differences in form. An essence is articulated into the physical world in a multitude of ways that is the same in everything and everyone, although it manifests in various shapes and characteristics. This essence is Spirit emanating from the core of all things. Communion with Nature is essential for you now. Take some time to do an open-eyed meditation with any nearby animal or plant. Relax your body as much as possible, breathe consciously, and keep your attention on the life-form you are communing with. After a few moments, you will notice a sense of the boundaries dissolving, a melding of the “I” and “Thou”. You may receive messages or impressions as you find yourself in the flow of unspoken communication,
