The Importance of Starhawk’s “City of Refuge”

I feel like this message needs re-posting, as so many people are reeling (real-ing?) from various revelations in personal, local, national, international and internet land. Sometimes fiction creates a safer ground for sorting through one’s own moral and spiritual assumptions, beliefs, and blind spots. We live in times of thinning veils, speedy web spinning, and continued tears. (Both the kind from your eyes and the kind that make holes in webs.)

If you feel ungrounded, please get outside and put your bare feet ON the ground. Find your own center, away from the hoopla, and give yourself permission to process at your own pace. If life demands faster processing, then I do recommend a fiction breather. Starhawk’s most recent novels give insights to all sorts of characters and situations, and identifying with characters as you read offers a chance for self-observation and, if necessary, recalibration. Few things are black or white. Learning to face the grey and navigate it will allow us to move forward in whole and integrated ways. And that is an individual process before it becomes a societal one.

Hugs, love and blessings …

As predicted, levels of intensity, exposure, and reactivity continue to increase, so we best learn how to deal with rapidly thinning veils. I’ve said for years that this is not a time for keeping secrets and hiding from your Shadow, as the energies no longer support codependency, collusion, treason, or sweeping things under the rug. They just don’t. I’m rarely surprised by “shocking” revelations, as I read people’s energy signatures and therefore notice the darkness amidst the light, the smudges, the shameful feelings, fear and Shadow boxing. We will see more and more of this as the veils continue to thin.The Hopi prophecies even predict people losing their minds due to enhanced abilities to “see.”

Best remedies?

As I have said for years, we must each address our own Shadow. Doing so takes tremendous courage and often results in internal and public shaming or rejection by friends, family, and society…
