My dear friends, we love you so very much. As you go about your days and the summer comes to a close remember that that there are seasons in life, seasons upon your earth, seasons in the cycles of spiritual evolution and even seasons within your own bodies. Your energy upon the earth is starting to move once again, slowly and surely with great turmoil and chaos as witnessed by the many natural disasters.
No doubt we are coming to see, within each of us dwells a Light -- an awareness capable not only of observing the host of invisible forces that forge life itself, but whose conscious interaction with them changes them as it will. It is through this higher order of ourselves that we are empowered to learn the truth about ourselves.
Once upon a time there was a young falcon named Frederick who lived among those of his kind in the ‘Forest of Falconry’. Now Fredrick was known to be quite a reserved bird for someone his age. He didn’t like the idea of squawking about like some of the others young birds that flocked close to home.
Disharmoniously plodding into the 21st century, humanity has managed to bring itself devastatingly close to the threshold of extinction. Like a cancerous cell on its path of destruction, we have decided to take as many plant and animal species as possible with us. Inevitably, Mother Earth will heal and recover from our hedonistic plunder, the question that remains at the end of each day, is, will we?
January is going to feel like the 'calm before the storm', partly because there are no planets in retrograde motion during the first three weeks. Many areas of the U.S. are enjoying spring-like temperatures and we're wondering if winter is going to suddenly appear with sub zero temperatures, snow, ice and howling winds to remind us that Spring is still a few months away. Rather than anticipate the timing of upcoming challenges, we can use this time to rest, re-center, re-group, re-balance and set some intentions for a powerful and interesting year.
I couldn’t believe that I woke up with a huge pimple on my face! In addition, I have slowly gained some weight over the past few years, which can be attributed to getting older and my hormone levels changing. I am working on becoming more physically fit, taking supplements regularly, and eating better. I came to the realization that I have identified my self worth through my outer appearance.
At times moving forward can be difficult if we are unable to see the path lying ahead. However, the path ahead is not as important as what is happening now. As a collective we have been conditioned to plan our whole life. From childhood, we have been bombarded with images and badgered with the infamous question "what do you want to be when you grow up?" We also responded innocently with the politically correct answer;
It is human nature to yearn, to take for granted the wonders that are already yours and to wish for more, for other. And it is this yearning that makes your life interesting and sometimes leads you to great things. But it is also this yearning that leads you away from peace and into a state of dissatisfaction, a state in which you are always waiting for things to be better, so that your internal peace is on hold, something to be achieved ‘if only.’
Since it is human nature to be like this, then accept it. But accept it with understanding. See yearning as a friend that comes to visit. Sit down with him and have a good laugh every so often. Is it not amusing that you can work so hard to achieve something and finally get it, only to become dissatisfied and filled again with yearning in such a short time? This is worthy of laughter, is it not?

Wooops, it seems like someone just ramped up
the energy levels again in the last few days. When I feel this kind of
acceleration, I usually look for a connection with the energies in the
Solar system. A quick check with www.spaceweather.com revealed no
sunspots and no solar winds! So this energy must be coming directly
