My fourth annual winter pilgrimage to Glastonbury was to coincide with January 2019 Super Blood Moon eclipse and the Venus/ Jupiter conjunction…
My imminent return filled me with a sense of hope and excitement in what had become a very productive but work intensive year. When the time came for me to finally embark on this multi dimensional journey I felt more than ready to reunite with the heart of Avalon. It is always through my walking this ancient land, communing with both the Goddess and animal/plant kingdom that I feel my true place and purpose on this planet, and in this current era. It is also impossible for me to tread on this earth without sensing the history and energy of our ancient ancestors, and to seek counsel with the elementals and spirits that wish to make them selves heard in present time. It is for this reason I must write this article; to relate to you the urgent messages and intuits I received during the recent eclipse season in Glastonbury, that correlate to the astrological climate for 2019…
I never truly know what to expect from any of my visitations to Glastonbury, I just know when it’s time to return, and I simply open to whatever Spirit and Goddess have in store for me. The only difference this time was that I arrived exhausted and still sick from a virus that I’d been trying to shift out of my system since the beginning of December. I decided not to stay at the ashram as I have done in past years, as I felt in need of more privacy and comfort. As things began to line up I found a lovely spot close to the The Chalice Well with a view of the Abbey grounds.
Upon arrival it wasn’t easy to commence raising my vibration to meet the frequency of my surroundings. Determined nevertheless, I set out immediately for the Tor. Breathless and dizzy I slowly clambered up the steep incline to the chapel tower, to gaze once more upon the incredible panorama of the Somerset flats with its mesmerizing patchwork of green meadows, o’er hills and dales as far as the eye can see. It is this magnificent vista from atop the ancient Isle of Avalon that is forever ingrained in my heart.
It was a rather busy and bustling Saturday in the Glastonbury township. Unbeknownst to me there was a Wassail ceremony in progress at the Avalon orchard to bless the apple trees and seal their abundance for the Spring. It felt rather challenging to be surrounded suddenly by so many strangers, as well as tolerate all the dress up and theatrics that accompanies this eclectic place. Still, I joined in with the festivities, and once dusk fell I just knew from here on out I would be very selective with whom I’d spend my time, and for the most part I wished to journey alone.
The night of the Full Moon culmination I constructed an altar from the contents of my medicine bag…
in honor of the Blood Moon and the magical Venus/ Jupiter conjunction. It represented in micro our great mother earth as viewed from the heavens, with offerings to each of the four cardinal directions, the four elements and the four archangels- marked by 4 quartz crystals. In my ceremonies the South direction symbolizes the powers of manifestation and earthly abundance, and in the west the divine feminine, representing the great mystery and the dreaming. The North upholds the ancestors, spirit and wisdom, while the east summons the sacred masculine, intelligence and illumination.
I was truly excited for the lunar eclipse and highly anticipated viewing it from the Tor. As it turned out the clear night sky became overcast with dense clouds, and even though my friend and I arrived atop the Tor at 5am, we never were graced with a view of the Blood moon! The surrounding landscape and the sleepy township of Glastonbury appeared compressed beneath a dense cloud bank, and together with the dimmed light conditions of the eclipse, I felt no inclination to take a single photo! Instead I bore witness to a rather dull reddish hue within the clouds as the moon was making her passage to set in the west. Nevertheless the energy of the eclipse felt mighty potent and powerful, and this stayed with me for at least 3 days post the eclipse event.
January 20/21 Super Blood Moon in fixed fire sign Leo…
The astrology in correspondence to these spectacular astronomical alignments evoked dynamic energy on earth, as this Super Blood Moon was the last in the series of eclipses on the Leo/Aquarius axis of ‘individuation’ that have been playing out for the past 17 months. January 20/21 marked the last eclipse for a number of years supporting us owning who we really are in the face of the consensus and the latest trends, or even our own self designated norm. It offered a new opportunity, or fresh start, in the arena of what is most heart felt, with little concern, or need for conformity. And since it culminated on the critical 0 degree, this had the makings for especially virile Leo energy.
Leo the lion activates the heart with the courage to live passionately…
He inspires our creativity for the birthing of personal legacy. It is through this fixed fire sign that we develop our individual and unique personality as well as our ego. The eclipse culmination point conjoined the North Node of the Moon (the head of the dragon, Rahu). Rahu reels in new energy rather than bringing back anything that pertains to the karmic past. To add to the futuristic element, the Full Moon/eclipse was square Uranus, almost at the last degree of Aries, signifying sudden breakthroughs, breakaways and radical change.
All in all this was a super powerful, super charged, super creative alignment, with mega sparks all round, thanks to both the radiant activation of our central star the Sun, and of course the electricity of Uranus. It asked of us to let the light in, and radiate our light back out into the world. It encouraged us to open our selves up to being awakened and inspired, and to let the divine spark enter through the crown to find its seat in our hearts. And, with the lion’s courageous heart, bravely and creatively move forward with our lives, to take on board the new karmic thread that was offered at this time. This theme is to remain active in the background over the course of the next 6 months.
Visitation to the Stanton Drew Stone Circles…
After the culmination of the lunar eclipse, and just after dawn my friend drove us to the Stanton Drew stones circles about 17 miles from Glastonbury. This is a little known site, now standing in farmland in the vicinity of a tiny hamlet. This ancient Neolithic site is comprised of 3 stone circles, an avenue, a quoit and a cove. It is now thought to be the predecessor to both Avebury and Stonehenge, dating from 3500- 2500 BC. The central “Grand Circle” believed to be dedicated to the sun, is the second largest in the country and was once a woodhenge containing 9 circles of pillars, while the SW circle dedicated to the Moon, is positioned on slightly higher ground, but is in greater disrepair than its counterparts.
It was an incredible experience to be the first persons to commune with the sacred site that morn. And as the clouds and mists unveiled the sacred landscape a huge flock of white gulls settled within the circumference of the earthwork that encircled the stones. It was truly an awesome site, and the mystique only enhanced when hundreds of birds took to the air to circle above us.
We spent a couple of hours experiencing each of the circles, and the alien like stones that marked this hallowed ground for our ancient ancestors. My friend and I were very much taken by the energy present within the NW circle, which together with ‘The Avenue’ appeared to be the gateway and procession to the whole complex. Curiously we both experienced a similar occurrence as we communed with both land and rock. The grass around us began to vibrate to the point that the grass was no longer distinguishable. In its place my friend saw a kind of geometric energetic field, while I too glimpsed this, only I also saw a thin film of mist traversing and evaporating just above the turf.
At the far end, and upon entering the avenue was a seemingly unassuming standing stone. When leaning my body and pressing my hands against it, I could feel all at once an energy rooting me into deep earth while another was pulling my energetic field off to the left side. It was a powerful and magical experience. Indeed, even the surface of the standing stones was extraordinary, like an ancient rubble fused solid; pitted with holes and fissures, in which iron deposits had left their orange and crimson striations. Two of the largest standing stones of the NW circle looked and felt positively extra terrestrial in their form and fabric.
My friend and I both agreed that the most powerful energy in this whole sacred arena was within the earth marked by the stones of the NW circle. I could sense there had been many rituals performed here, and somehow it was acting like a vortex to different realms, therein transforming the 3d earth reality plane. It wasn’t until later that I read this quote from M Lundy…
“The octagonal NE circle is really a Venus circle, with its 8 stones marking the eight years (and 99 full moons) of the Venus pentagram cycle.”
My experience and intuitions of this powerful enclosure are very inclined to agree with his hypothesis.
“The Star of Bethlehem” and the Venus/ Jupiter conjunction…
On morning of the 22nd I climbed the Tor alone before dawn, and was fortunate enough to witness the beautiful Venus and Jupiter conjunction rising together in the southeast. Historians have determined the possibility that “The Star of Bethlehem” was actually a Venus/ Jupiter conjunction, so you can understand then why this is of such great significance.
At the same time, this magical planetary pairing formed a Grand Fire Trine with Mars and the Moon. It evoked really wonderful fluid creative energy that strongly supported the ease of relations between the sacred masculine and divine feminine, as the sacred lovers above moved into a position for mutual compatibility and reciprocation. It was also a powerful alignment for the birth of great works of art and beauty.
As I climbed the pilgrims trail up the front of the Tor, the Supermoon peered briefly through a lilac haze of clouds. A soft pink halo encircled the luminous disc of the moon, and I watched in amazement as the halo formed the shape of a heart and then morphed into a beautiful rose capturing the pregnant moon as its center. I felt the presence of the Goddess casting her radiance on earth through her subtle reflective light, and I felt her presence too deep in this mythical land of Avalon; in the grass and sod, prickled now to awaken at the first light of dawn.
As the Sun suddenly gleamed brazen on the horizon, the earth awoke to the miracle and warmth of light cascading across the frozen levels. It was such a marvel to behold the golden glow slowly ascend the eastern side of the Tor. The glory and warmth of sunlight felt truly exquisite as it penetrated my retinas. I watched on in awe as the suns rays cascaded over the dark austere shell of the stone chapel tower, suddenly animating the cold interior. Royal blue auras glowed around the luminosity of arch windows, as the infiltration of light sanctified the chapel once again as a holy place and the dwelling of divinity.
After witnessing first light I made my slow descent down the back of the Tor to the Avalon Apple Orchard. The dawns heavenly light had me completely euphoric, and I felt so grateful to be present in this moment, as a witness to such glory manifest in this earth realm.
I had brought with me a selection of ribbons whose colors and textures I’d intuited for this eclipse. The color theme was predominantly reds and gold, contrasted with the cooler hues of silver and aqua. As I tied the ribbons gently on the boughs of the Mother apple tree, I began to commune through the tree with the Goddess.
“Tender the flame with in, and sit in the presence of the sacred circle,” spoke the Goddess.
She instructed me to light a candle every day and watch it steadily burn, and to continue this communion early in the morning and in the dark of night.
She also reminded me of the power of sunlight and how to activate those light codes for healing the physical body and nourishing the soul and spirit. With her assistance I intuited that over the course of the next 3 + years we will notice the ‘light’ dim significantly out in the world. She made it clear that it is our responsibility, now more than ever to tend to the flame within. This connection to source, to divine light is eternal and infinite and must be preserved individually and collectively to secure a brighter future for all humanity.
She went on to explain that the dark days are a lesson for each and every one of us; a teaching in expanding the light within. Her message implied that real change on this planet can only develop from our inner combustion, thereby intensifying the torch of compassionate love and holy wisdom.
“The body that you inhabit is a sacred space…tend to your temple as you would tend to me…when you disrespect your body temple you disrespect me,” concluded The Goddess
Over the course of the next few days visiting the sacred sites of Glastonbury, and the Medieval city of Wells I contemplated this intimate communion in the Apple Orchard. And as I assimilated this message the Olympian Goddess Hestia came to mind; Goddess of the hearth, and of the fire in ritual circle.
In ancient Greece she was honored and worshiped both in the home and temple, while her fire was kept burning in all civic centers. She upheld the archetype of meditative wisdom and created that infinite space that stands outside of linear time.
Little is known of her, as there are no statues and paintings, since Hestia had no need or desire for idolization. She lived solely in a state of peace and reverence that emanated from deep within. Hestia took an oath of eternal virginity, which Zeus granted her, after which she didn’t much participate in mythologies of the Greeks. Nevertheless she had her own great presence, which emanated in a very quiet and humble way, compared to her virgin Goddess contemporaries- Athena and Artemis.
Hestia relinquished her outer form in the favor of anonymity to become a fire within a circle, which made her the receiver of great honor, and privileges unlike any other God or Goddess. According to Jungian psychologist Jean Shinoda Bolen, her symbolism of the circle still teaches us to center in ourselves, and become our own authority, as without internal authority we cannot speak up to external authority. Jean explains that the development of such inner conviction breeds rich experiences, out of which grows a source of meaning. Hestia quietly creates serenity and peace for her self and others, making her presence an exceptional gift for our current era with all it many stressors and distractions.
I realize that Hestia’s way of internal devotion, appears now in stark contrast to what is being seen and promoted among men and women of this current era. Social media sites elevate and worship the divas, and the seductresses, rewarding them with high notoriety. Many women promote and represent a very scant, biased and sexualised archetype of the Goddess, because women are still not fully emancipated from old patriarchal concepts of gender and sexuality, that fulfill mans base primal desires for power and sex. In this way the true power of the feminine is still kept in check; her wild, untameable, unfathomable and utterly uninhibited nature completely subdued.
Many women, and men use the Goddess name in vain…there are those who claim to be reenacting “The Goddess” in an overtly sexually provocative manner, which just continues to appease the old paradigm of the submissive and disempowered version of the feminine. The message received from the Goddess made it clear that it is time to end this charade and tend Hestia’s eternal flame, by shifting the focus from the external to the internal.
Both women and men must come to experience and understand the true nature of the Goddess. “She” is infinite wisdom that surfaces from all the dark inner spaces…from the deep hidden interior of the earth, deep in the human psyche, and out into the dark recesses of the cosmos and beyond the Galactic Center. The overwhelming number of depictions of pretty, perfect, sexualised Goddesses are not helping us evolve out of the old patriarchal paradigm. They keep the true feminine in check.
As one explores the divine feminine it soon becomes evident that the power of the ‘she’ is not construed solely around the beauty and value of her physical assets, but is generated primarily from a stunning wildness that is utterly uninhibited…
So what does it mean to be truly uninhibited?
Most of us have been conditioned to think that this word is synonymous with sexual liberation and licentiousness; to be reckless, boisterous, wanton, shameless, free and easy. The definition of the word ‘uninhibited’ means a state of being that is both free and natural. It is the ability to express ones feelings or thoughts unselfconsciously and without restraint. Synonyms include wild, carefree, unrestricted, unconstrained, uncontrolled, unreserved, liberated, open, extrovert, candid, outspoken, forthright, spontaneous, and instinctive. Ultimately it describes a state of being that has not been restrained or repressed.
If we truly wish to be free of the social and personal oppression generated by the long patriarchal reign of the fast dissolving ‘Piscean Age’, then one must stop building on top of the same lies, and propagating more and more of the mind conditioning of an archaic paradigm. If every man and woman summoned their core power to truly recognize and own their inner ‘wildness’ and divinity then such oppression would have no place within, or outside of us.
If you still feel to continue this dying thread, by publicly sharing your body assets with the rest of the world on your social platform, or in any career or public arena, then be honest with yourself and determine if what you are generating is truly authentic, or just proliferating the old conditioning that holds no true empowerment for the feminine. And if we’re truly striving for greater equality; for more power and respect for the feminine then this attitude must shape all our actions. Showing up for a rally or being part of a movement such as the #metoo, is only the tip of the iceberg. The Goddess is making it clear that equality is an inside job. Love, honor and respect thyself is the only path that leads to true equality within this duality matrix. If you cant or wont adapt and treat yourself differently, then how can you expect to be treated differently by others? Stoking Hestia’s flame propagates greater respect for our body/soul temple, and collectively this generates greater social equality and harmonious relations. Only true embodiment of the soul and spirit within the conscious human vessel leads to true intimacy and connection with self, others and with divine Spirit.
How you behave and carry yourself in every aspect of your life has the power to change everything…
Consider conducting yourself in relationship, in marriage, at work, in your family and in social or public domains with humility, and in knowing your true inner strength; in your connection to Great Spirit and to the Mother Goddess- guardian of this earth planet and the great mystery.
In order to end the oppression of the feminine, it will come to pass that both women and men must summon the courage and determination to quit and consciously transform all abusive oppressive relationships, plus work and careers that serve to disempower them. Once this liberation is in affect, there is a natural progression towards deepening ones perception and responding to the higher self, as ones attention is no longer focused on all the dramas, and material distractions. This, in and of itself, is a powerful paradigm shift.
It is sad, considering how much hype exists currently around women’s rights, just how much womankind still buys into the old paradigm of her beauty and sexuality, by still pandering to the primal wants and needs of men; even going so far as to distort her natural shape and appearance and use her body and feminine wiles for material gains. I am not suggesting there is anything wrong with the primal, as it certainly has its place and it’s role, but in this age of great awakening, the higher self is nourished by much more than such basic titillation which only activates the first and second chakras. There is a need now more than ever to restore the matriarchy, and revive the medicine of the High Priestess, of a long gone era when woman synonymous with the Great Goddess and the fecund land was respected for her fundamental connection to all of nature, through her life giving womb. It is vital we do this for the health of the planet, as her well being is intrinsically linked to the wellness of our own body vessels.
Living the way of the God…
Besides all of this more recent emphasis on awakening the Goddess, we have spent much of our human history with the idea that we can become as opulent and all powerful as a God, and live like one if we have enough wealth, or climb our way to the top of the hierarchical ladder. We even created Gods of our leaders, and now worship our actors, musicians and sports persons. In “the age of the social”, the high tech media has created platforms where all kinds of people with absolutely no talent to those who are truly exceptional, can be worshiped by their ‘followers.’
If you have in some way grabbed the spotlight and are living the way of the God, then you have landed in the lap of great responsibility. Like it or not, you are a role model. It is fundamental this year that you take this position very seriously and accept the responsibility that has been placed on you, for you have the chance to make a difference and live by example. Consider being more mindful of the legacy you are not only creating for yourself, but also for the collective.
The Goddess’s message expressed that the time is nigh for radical change and that aspiring to live like a God is pure fallacy…just a grandiose delusion fueled by greed. The shorter lived era of Goddess revival, with the majority still continuing to uphold the old male paradigm of feminine beauty and sexuality is also a fallacy. This year and onward is all about deepening and strengthening our core power; agitating the dark inert matter, out of which pours the energy and potential to grow new form.
2019 is a tremendous year of karmic deliverance and personal responsibility…
since Saturn will conjoin with the South Node of the Moon, (representing our collective past karma), and steadily encroach on Pluto (Lord of the Underworld) for their intensely transformational exact conjunction of January 2020. Saturn and Pluto are the two task masters for body and soul. Both teach us humility; how to live within our natural born limits and use our inner power as a positive, productive and beneficial force out in the world. If we misuse power these are the two planets that set us straight…it may not happen in this life, yet all debts are weighed, measured and continued, and as they say the wheel of karma keeps on turning round and round.
Justice too is natural law, because truly how else could our 3 dimensional world and state of being be upheld when we have the gift of free will. Something in the cosmos has to reign in our immense human desire for more, bigger and better! Both Saturn and Pluto work on us externally and internally to constrict and transform us. In a nutshell then 2019 is the year of facing consequences and dealing responsibly with that which we have wielded in this life and previous lifetimes, as we approach the 2020 tipping point, when collectively we’ll witness a mass redistribution of power all across the planet.
Thanks to this adjoining trio stellium up above, many of us will continue to conjure the reemergence of old karmic patterns that remain under current in this life time. Even if you have spent the last decade healing very deep wounds and made great headway, there is still the residual effect left over, and this year will (if we allow these energies in) do a final sweep before we ride the wave of this grand rearrangement of internal and external power.
This is most likely to show up with the resurfacing of memories that reactivate past wounds and summon the passing, or tragic demise of those whom we loved. It is important to survey these memories from the witness position. Understand that those who passed early in life, or died suddenly and tragically, have played a vital part in our karmic journey, and these old contracts and templates between one another are the ones we incarnated here with, only now they have shifted inter dimensionally, as have we. These individuals demise will come to be viewed in the current timeline as the karmic energetic sacrifices that were necessary for the evolution of the souls they left behind.
Old trauma signatures and past timelines are again crossing and weaving patterns into the fabric of our present existence, but unlike previous reemergence these are being presented to us at a higher octave, and gifting us a unique once in a lifetime opportunity to heal at multi dimensional levels. Again this is if we are open to the recalibrating effect and meet this challenge with an open and grateful heart, rather than fight against it or ignore the signs. This year the opportunity will arise to make amends with the past, but rather than reintroducing the wound and then allowing this thread to spin out of control and reel in more dramas and tragedies, it will guide us towards a higher level of conscious healing, where we may journey on the highest road towards our own personal transformation.
The operation of free will on this planet will increase exponentially this year…
as no matter of our karmic past, or our destiny we always have a choice, and yet we must also heed the natural limits set out for our soul in this lifetime. As a practicing astrologer it is always a revelation to view a persons God given potential for their current incarnation, through the reading of their natal chart. Everyone of us has different limitations and constrictions to help us on our souls evolutionary journey, all of which can be ascertained from an astrological reading. Therein it is also vital this year and onward not to weigh or judge our self against any other person- how they may be living larger or smaller than our self.
As of the New Year many may have felt a huge shift in the energy they are attracting around them.
It may even feel like a new lease of life, as more fortunate and meaningful opportunities arise. This is largely due to Jupiter moving through his home sign of Sagittarius and counteracting the heavy contraction of Saturn and Pluto both in cardinal earth sign Capricorn. We must be ever grateful to the opulent Lord Jupiter for this uplifting surge of expansion and optimism throughout the year until December when he too enters Capricorn. Besides this, both Chiron and Uranus are changing signs in 2019 and will not reenter Pisces and Aries respectively. This too adds to the momentum for shifting gears, for change, and choosing differently. The February 14th Valentine Mars/ Uranus conjunction also activated important breakthroughs, and breakaways regarding the karmic past.
2019 is about getting serious about who we truly are, and what it is we truly wish to be expending our energy and efforts on in the present, and for our future.
There is a need for greater accountability, for greater physical and psychological efforts to confront our fears, our self made limits and restrictions, as well as face the karma that has come back around. Then we must find the courage to push through all that need for approval and conformity to truly own the person we came here to be, by harnessing our souls full potential.
Needless to say many of us will continue to encounter big and important life lessons. It is easy to play the victim when circumstances head south, and yet everything is still in its rightful place whether we may like it or not. We must trust in the divine intelligence of this cosmos, and sense in a fuller capacity how we are in constant co-creation with the life force. The organic matrix in which we live is the most advanced, benefic and intelligent algorithm in our known existence, and we are fortunate enough to glimpse momentarily states beyond the 3D reality. Some souls are already experiencing an expansion and energetic shift in the matrix, allowing them to experience 4 and 5D realms. It is our privilege then, to have our human consciousness to be able to witness such remarkable and miraculous brilliance. Now is a time to live in greater reverence of all of this, and grow ever more humble to the true inner creative power of the Great Mother, and return to her true sacred ways.
Communion with the spirits of the trees…
While the Goddess message slowly sank in during the course of my time in Glastonbury and onward, there was another communion taking place that was as profound and meaningful, and it had started prior to my visitation.
This holy communion was with the spirits of the trees, and especially with those elders who have stoically graced this earth for centuries. Since leaving the US I felt myself drawn to the woods and especially the tree elders in my locale. It has been such a relief to be able to get up close and personal with the trees again, and indeed all the plant kingdom, since back in Long Island I am unable to create such intimacy. This is due to our woods and grasslands being infested with ticks, all of which are carriers of debilitating and fatal diseases.
As I began my adjustment period in the UK it was the trees that beckoned me to come closer and simply ‘be’ in their stoic presence. I found these experiences both grounding and nurturing…with a deep sense of home coming. As I sought out more of these experiences, my interactions with them appeared to summon the violet flame and a crystalline light that radiated in rays of the rainbow spectrum all around me, and this was very much heightened during the eclipse week.
Trees are truly such wondrous beings, and it is humbling to recognize that many of these elders have been silent witnesses to our ever changing environment, plus the social and technological progression of humanity. Indeed this was most apparent during my communions, as from what I could intuit they are claiming the urgency for us to pay greater attention to them and to all organic life. I have sensed too that they are currently attempting to adapt their own frequency in order to better reach and communicate with more people, as they feel and ‘know’ everything that has made up the past, and wish to impart their intuits for the future. Together with the fungi they communicate through their root system, in a magical and extensive underground network, much like our human nervous system.
What is left of our mighty forests still function as the lungs of our planet, and we would not be able to sustain life on earth without them. Trees have always been here to help us thrive and yet we have become ever more dismissive of them, as our technologies have taken us out of real time and into this vast collective disassociated state. I can tell you that they are very concerned about the current health of the planet, and all those they share this soil, water and air with. They are raising the alarm that we are at a major crisis point, and it is much more pressing than anyone dares relate to us. I really sense their urgency at getting this message across.
The trees are demanding to have our full attention back,
just as they did when the druids and Celts walked the land. These selfless beings are more than willing to assist, but as long as our attention is elsewhere, even when they try to communicate at a fever pitch, they still go unnoticed, and it really frustrates them. All plants and animals respond to being acknowledged and respected and it is vital now and onward to revive the reverence and gratitude for these beings that either sacrifice their physical bodies for us to survive, or else work together in service for the security of our very existence.
Hugging trees and forest bathing are two of the most beautiful communions we have with our fellow tree spirits, and they are more than accepting of such an embrace and encounter. They feel our love as they do all our emotions, but what hurts them the most is existing in a state of neglect, or dismissal. They are social beings, as are we, and in that there is great commonality. Let’s not forget too that trees have inspired man since the very beginning. At the center of the Garden of Eden stood the “Tree of Life” and the “Tree of Knowledge”. This symbology has been with us through all of time, and still speaks of their vital physical and spiritual role in humanities growing consciousness and transcendence. Their roots, trunks and branches act as a bridge between heaven and earth and conduits for the elements of water, earth and air.
So next time you see a tree that beckons you to come closer, please take the time out of your busy schedule to commune with these unique beings. Give it your undivided attention and make it aware of your love and gratitude. This will give them the extra boost of energy they need to continue their vital role for a healthy atmosphere and to combat all our toxic mess.
And so it is here that I must end my recount and hope that you will take with you that which resonates the most. It is always a privilege to be able to share such insights with my readers. I’d like to state before I’m branded for condescending, or for judging others and their behavior, that I am very aware of how in the past I have contributed and upheld the old patriarchal paradigm, especially through the expression of my own sexuality. Of course I also understand that countless women and men throughout the ages have fallen victim to violence and abuse, at no direct cause of their own.
The messages that arose from this most recent pilgrimage to Avalon have been a huge reminder to myself to live and act responsibly, and by example. I am far from perfect, and I have made many choices that could be conceived as mistakes, and yet I am almost at peace with all of that. In making my amends I have exercised my free will and conjured alternative and more meaningful opportunities, which in turn have lead me further on my spiritual and creative path towards greater soul authenticity.
Moving forward into a very uncertain future, I hope that each of us embark, or continue forth on the inward journey, to deepen our respect fore mostly for ourselves, for others and all the sentient and insentient beings that grace this beautiful mother earth planet. I invite you to explore the possibility of living an uninhibited life, and in so doing enjoy the many wonders and synchronicities that will grace your everyday. I wish you all a peaceful passage throughout 2019 and beyond, warmed by Hestia’s hearth and guided by the light of her eternal flame.
