The Photo Version

As promised, here’s the photo version of ‘Twas the Weekend ‘Fore Autumn:

The Weekend ‘Fore Autumn

 

‘Twas the weekend ‘fore Autumn and all through the yard,

All the plants were a’thriving, including the chard.

The bees dined on asters; the cushaw had grown.

The mums nearly bursting, the yard freshly mown.

 

Thai basil hummed purple; eggplants danced in the breeze–

The garden so fragrant, it drew many a sneeze!

 

Sweet potato vines covered the sides of the trough,

And on sedum and zinnias, butterflies sipped on and off.

 

For the first time in years, the holly had berries.

Boltonia blossoms delighted the faeries.

 

As Fall Equinox split the light and the dark,

Those flowers all giggled at anything stark.

 

The Robinhood roses had been blooming since June–

So hard to believe ‘twould be Halloween soon!

Autumn Equinox 2012–Closer to Fine

What a week of sessions! My heart goes out to everyone struggling to integrate the new energies as the old seems to fall away faster than it’s replaced.

I’m feeling it, too, but for me it feels like such a celebration! Those sticky spots I’ve felt for so long have finally begun to release. Thank you dreams for finding creative ways to circumvent conscious resistance. I awoke this morning after partaking in a “forgiveness ritual” in a dream, which allowed my subconscious (the actively creating part of my existence) to let something go that my conscious mind kept trying to understand. It was a spontaneous, highly symbolic ritual in the dream, and I awoke with joyful lyrics playing in my conscious mind as the commentary: “There’s more than one answer to these questions … closer I am to fine.” My brain just smiled, as I’ve been asking, asking, asking for release from energetic ties to a binding relationship. My guides had assured me release would come, but perhaps in a wilder way than I expected.

As my brain continued smiling, dancing and celebrating the relief, I realized that this Indigo Girls song expresses so much of what has come to light for others in this week’s sessions.

When old hurts arise and all the old methods of dealing with them fall short, it doesn’t mean that you have fallen short. It means the Universe has given you an opportunity and a strong nudge to transcend the original question. No more old paradigm of fixing broken things — what about the new manifestation beyond your wildest, prior permitted imaginings?

“I went to the doctor, I went to the mountains
I looked to the children, I drank from the fountain
There’s more than one answer to these questions
Pointing me in crooked line
The less I seek my source for some definitive
The closer I am to fine.”

As we move from stark duality into a more integrated holistic approach to life in the hologram, we get to reconnect with Nature, each other, Spirit, and, perhaps most poignantly, we get to reclaim our Soul. That process can feel intense, backwards, lonely and inside out, but the journey results in a closer union and an embodied experience that All is Well. On this day of equal light and equal darkness, let us remember and reaffirm the mystic Julian of Norwich’s comforting words: “All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well.

Happy Equinox and September Special

Just wanted to wish all my Northern Hemisphere readers a Happy Autumnal Equinox and a cozy entrance into the darker half of our year. I keep dreaming of (and harvesting in real life) pumpkins! I haven’t cracked their code yet, or I suppose I wouldn’t keep dreaming of them in highly symbolic adventures. Cinderella’s magical coach? Fertility? Abundance? I don’t know, but these pumpkins have overgrown my garden and my dream life with instructions like, “Focus on the big pumpkins. Claim your inheritance from the Universe.”

Um … okay! And that’s one of the more normal pumpkin dreams. 🙂

In celebration of the Equinox, I’ll be visiting the same crystal labyrinth I walked for May’s Wesak Full Moon event. Here’s a picture of this magical place:

And me with all the orbs:

Melanie France, the woman who hosts this gorgeous labyrinth, is offering a crystal skull class before the Equinox Walk. I’ll be there and enjoying every moment of it! As a way of sharing my own excitement about this shifting season, I’m offering a special discount for the rest of September.
