Timothy Glenn ~ Relationship Key Words

One of my very favorite articles by Timothy Glenn! I even make a Faerie cameo. 😉

Relationship Keywords

by Timothy Glenn

As we transition from the artificial matrix of the old world into the Natural Reality of the New Earth, we are individually and collectively expanding into a profoundly different dimension of conscious evolution. If we as Beings shift to such a significant degree, it automatically follows that the nature of relationship will change as well.

A couple decades or so ago, I assembled a group of keywords to contrast relationships of the old world with relationships of the New Earth. In recently sharing these perspectives with clients, the realization dawned: the original text had never made it onto the internet.

Here are three pairs of contrasting keywords.

Old World: Personal

All our relationships in the old world operated purely on a personal level. Everything was done personally, and taken personally. Ego games abounded, complete with power plays and loads of manipulation. Been there, done that? Join the club. Bought the t-shirt as well? By now, perhaps that old t-shirt has faded and fallen apart from so many washings.

Upon entering into any old world relationship, it was as though the other person took a snapshot of you and thereby defined your beingness now and forevermore. We can probably not even count how many times we have heard lines like: “Well, you’re not the girl I married.” A reasonable response could be: “Yeah, well…thank God. Growth and transformation are sort of natural.”

New Earth: Transpersonal

A transpersonal relationship has the capacity to contain all the finest attributes of a strictly personal relationship, but affords the freedom to expand far beyond. Continue reading

Being fully present: first she placed her hand on the gunman’s heart

Wow, thanks to my friend, fellow permaculturist, and astrology mentor Ann Kreilkamp and her friend Julia for this amazing story. Definitely worth the click through to the full LA Times article:

What can — and did, on this occasion — happen when humans drop their masks to fully encounter the humanity of the Other. From the LA Times. Thanks to my dear friend Julia for this find.

Enlightenment through Shadow Work

I’m linking to Ann Kreilkamp’s post called “Two Excellent, Dovetailing Perspectives on Q,” and calling it “Three Excellent, Dovetailing Perspectives On Q” due to the comment section on Ann’s post. I’ve stayed relatively quiet on the Q phenomenon, because I prefer to let people decide for themselves what’s real or relevant in their own realm. The Q stuff delves deep into the Shadow, and while I regularly help clients do that, I never want to force that onto people before they’re ready. The mainstream media has done that, though, so this post comes as support not pressure. Careful blog readers over the past decade will recognize that I’ve written and spoken of these topics many times and many years before. I just haven’t called them Q. Continue reading

Here Be Dragons ~ And Faeries, Too!

Like the otherworldly birch tree in my last post, I’ve been waiting to blog these photos and stories for awhile. Some over the top synchronicities at last Tuesday’s Township Board Meeting let me know it would soon be time. Background: a very active neighbor and I compared notes a few weeks ago and discovered that she, her daughter and I are really in this sidewalk battle to preserve our trees. Others love our mature tree lined streets, but for the three of us, it goes much deeper. Trees, nature spirits, the Fae … for us, these represent something spiritual, the link between spiritual and material realms. The passion fueling each of us arises from the core of our being.

On that evening, our neighbor showed me her nextdoor neighbor’s yard, the apparent center of an old apple orchard from 50 years ago. She pointed to circles of thicker, greener grass and said, “Those rings drive them nuts because they can’t get their lawn to stay even after mowing. They’re the circles around old apple trees that have been gone for half a century. The Earth remembers.”

“They’re faery rings!” I said, “Apple trees are sacred to the Otherworld.”

My neighbor said in a hushed, amused voice, “That’s what I told them! Faery rings. They think I’m joking.” Continue reading

Timothy Glenn ~ Uranus in Taurus: The Preview

After a long hiatus, but always timely … a new astrological meta-analysis by Timothy Glenn. This is an important — and potentially empowering — post. I know so many good-hearted, intelligent people about to have their world shaken like an electric popcorn maker struck by lightning. If you find yourself knee-jerk reacting to anything, it’s wise to step back and humbly reassess. Maybe your original assessment will hold, but it’s wise to examine any and all “of course” ideas. Look for those areas you consider “so obvious” that you’re certain anyone who disagrees with you is a neanderthal or idiot.

As Tim explains, we’re in preview mode. What do you wish to create? What are you fighting, and what are you supporting? Are you sure they’re mutually exclusive? Awakener, Revelator, Liberator Uranus is full of surprises. It’s popcorn time. Whether you get zapped or enjoy the show depends on your own creativity, awareness and adaptability. Sending love, discernment and courage to everyone … here’s Tim:

Uranus in Taurus: The Preview

by Timothy Glenn

We have been hearing quite a buzz about the revolutionary planet Uranus entering the staid sign of Taurus. Uranus tends to be ahead of its time, so no matter what sign it enters, it looks around and says, “Oh, this is so retro. It’s time for an upgrade.”

The three outer planets (Uranus, Neptune and Pluto) never simply move from one sign to another. Since they scour every single degree of the zodiac, they always do a triple transit over the cusp during their ingress into any sign.

Uranus initially moved into Taurus on May 15. It will go into retrograde motion on August 7, and cross back into Aries on November 6. This gives us a six month preview of what may arise during the following seven years.

Movie Trailers

Most of us have watched previews of movies, and from that we have determined whether or not we would like to watch the entire film. We can apply the same principle here.

If we see or experience things we like during the preview period, we can invest more energy into manifesting such possibilities on a grander scale during the Main Event after Uranus returns to Taurus for the long haul on May 6, 2019. Continue reading

Elen of the Ways and the 4th of July

The day before American Independence Day seems an appropriate day to repost Door Number 17: Elen of the Ways. This afternoon brought a lovely synchronicity train of events leading me right back to this post and the door’s ongoing reminders of support. I already reblogged the original portal door entry once before, but here’s the link again. As we face down the “Agenda’s” in our own neighborhood, protecting our trees and our own sovereignty, it occurs to me that others may be feeling similar dynamics in their own lives — whether internal or manifested in the world “outside.”

Lately, I’ve found such powerful support for people saying “no” to any kind of abuse or manipulation. I’ve seen people formerly sucked dry by energy vampires regain their strength and glorious energy. As Rumi says, “There is a way. I have traveled it thousands of times.”

Blessed Be … and be the blessing.

Laura Bruno’s Blog

As I’ve mentioned in earlier posts, there have been times in my life when I’ve faced problems so tricky, so “impossible” that the only way out was in. Deeeeeep inside, through the inner rabbit hole, through the spiral and out the newly created portal. In those days, I’d paint a door, and you know what? It worked.

For the past three “doors,” I’ve taken to canvases that portray some sort of doorway or entry point — still portals, but not painted on actual doors. I usually select a local or personal issue as the initial point of need or emotional spark, but then I create the portals as offerings for how such issues play out across the world. “As Within, So Without,” and “As Above, So Below.” I’ve painted portals for healing Lyme Disease, for welcoming a return of the Divine Feminine and the Divine Masculine

Sharon Blackie ~ The Mythic Imagination: TEDx Stormont Salon

I love this TEDx talk by Dr. Sharon Blackie! I’m also deeply enjoying her year long Celtic Studies Course. From the YouTube description:

“How can myth and folk tales lead us to live more deeply and more authentically, and inspire us to fall in love with the world all over again? Dr. Sharon Blackie is an award-winning writer whose work sits at the interface of psychology, mythology and ecology. Her highly acclaimed books, articles, and workshops are focused on the development of the mythic imagination, and on the relevance of our native myths, fairy tales and folk traditions to the personal, social and environmental problems we face today. She is the author of the novel The Long Delirious Burning Blue, and two nonfiction books: If Women Rose Rooted, and The Enchanted Life. In 2017 she founded The Hedge School – both an online space and a physical location in Connemara, for teachings and explorations in building a new folk culture. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. ”
