On BEcoming Through Maturing

On BEcoming Through Maturing

New hair – who’s this? Truly. I’m asking this question of myself. As I confront becoming an “older, more mature” woman whose staring at the last third (or end of the third quarter) of life, I want to know Her. Exploring what it means, what it looks like, to become a Wise Woman. For the last few years I’ve been looking up older women for inspiration: celebrities , public figures, women I personally know who emulate and embody what I’m looking for. What do they look like? What do they wear? How does grey hair look? What does it mean to soften? How do they emulate grace? Are they wrapped up in maintaining youth? Are they getting facelists? Botox? Fillers? Are any of those things aligned for me? Do I want to allow the maturing of my visage? Or do I strive against the process? And to what degree? Who is in integrity with the transformation of maturing? Of this I am clear – we get to choose how we want to grow with age. To me, that means embracing certain aspects of aging, and taking the best care of my beautiful body temple, possible. Hardcore workouts are a thing of the past. My body doesn’t want or deserve punishment. It wants and deserves my love. It prefers yoga, dance, stretching, hiking and walking. My body temple doesn’t want sugar anymore. It’s communicating it’s disdain for certain foods and environments. I’m listening. Making this change in my hair is an outer reflection of the inner growth I engage. Cutting off the old, damaged hair and letting my beautiful silver...
Evolutionary Burn

Evolutionary Burn

Hold on to your undies, my friends, cuz this ride is far from over! In fact, you may want to bring along a second, clean pair. 😳😬 I’m not a “doom and gloomer” I am grounded and realistic. As well as a deeply mystical metaphysician and student/practitioner of ancient esoteric wisdom. Therefore I offer you a look at one of the energetic perspectives I’m privy to, as it helps me understand the bigger, evolutionary perspective of events. Astrology is an ancient system that provides language, context and meaning for events and energy currents as we experience them on Earth. The planets are players – the Gods of Heaven – and illustrate that As Above, So Below. There are MAJOR correlations between what happens in our personal lives and the World stage and the movement of the planets. Think of how different personalities relate in communities, but in this case they all think they’re God. (You get the idea – Drama, a hero’s journey, cycles….) I want to share just some of the astrological aspects we’re encountering so you can see how they are affecting our country. And, so you can adjust these themes to see how they may fit into your own life. Yesterday, Eris – goddess of discord and sister to Mars – went direct. She’s the goddess who shit-stirred up the events leading to the Trojan War. There’s a New Moon in Capricorn at midnight EST on January 13 featuring the Sun conjunct Pluto. Pluto is god of death and the underworld. It lives and thrives in the shadows, unearthing all the things we may not want...
Inner Authority

Inner Authority

Speaking my truth is a practice in integrity. It’s part of how I transmit energy and understanding born of intense study, practice, and life experience. While I was born with a renegade spirit, rebellious to the core, questioning, fiercely independent, I fought hard to claim my Inner Authority. Outer authority (to my rebel soul) is something to be questioned, confronted, held to account, and railed against when it’s not born of Service, true justice, or when it doesn’t make sense in a feeling, embodied way. Those times when something just feels :off:. Over time and with great dedication to growth and self-knowledge, I’ve learned and experienced many things that have moved from “intelligent, head knowledge” to full-blown, embodied, deeply anchored truth. At times I find that my truths align with the Truth. Especially when lived and breathed repeatedly. There are (more and more often, lately) many times when my personal, subjective truth aligns with objective, universal Truth. And, I’m all for lining up with what is True and speaking to it, honoring it, sharing it, ANCHORING it. During this era we are living, what is Truth versus what is true, are constantly in question. In some ways I see this as a time of revelation- not in the biblical sense – but in the ways that we are all learning to become adept at discernment and our own analysis. It’s ultimately the search for deeper meaning and the crucial use of our critical thinking faculties. We are coming into our own belief systems, forming those structures, dismantling what’s not aligned or ill-informed. I suspect we will be in this...
