Greenlights Translation

secretsoftheserpent

Krewella is a band that has been awake for awhile.   They know what they are doing and so do the people who help them. These girls are not just about girl power they are fully awake. They use terms like bull and sheep knowing what I show you in my posts.   Their new song Greenlights is very revealing.  Here is another trip into my mind.  Take a deep breath and hold on tight.

Fear

secretsoftheserpent

What is fear?  It is not just something that you experience once in awhile.   It goes much deeper than just psychology.  Fear is in are DNA.  The human race has experienced it since its inception.  Has anyone ever taught you how to deal with fear or what it is?  Odds are you will say no.  Everyone tries to deal with fear all the time yet no one tells us how to deal with it.  We don’t like fear, yet it triggers so easy within us.  Fear is running rampant right now.  Just like all our other emotions the world tells you to suppress it.  This post will help you overcome the limits you have been taught.  Fear dominates everyone’s life.  With the way things are today it will not only dominate it will run your life.

Taking a Breath: Spiritual Care for Intense Times

The Druid's Garden

To say that this hasn’t been an easy week for anyone in North America, Europe or in many places around the globe is an understatement. Between what is happening in work life, school life, and political life, the situation is difficult to navigate.  I’ve talked to many friends and family who are feeling overwhelmed, lost, panicked, and fearful about the near future. So today’s post is about taking a breath.  Its times like these that I am thankful for my druid practice, thankful for the healing nature provides, and thankful for the lessons of spirit.  Let’s take a breather today, now, in this space and time, and talk through a few spiritual self-care practices that can help in times of high stress, anxiety, and intensity.  I have three kinds of suggestions that have helped me get through this week–embracing nature, embracing spiritual practices, and embracing the bardic arts.

Embrace Nature

The Observer Becomes the Observed

secretsoftheserpent

In order to change it takes a lot of energy.  Most will not change because they waste their energy on drama, conflict and television.  In order to change it takes action.  Not action of having done or will do something, but doing it now.  People get stuck on analyzing themselves and their world and thinking about doing something.  The problem with analyzing is the knowledge and wisdom is incomplete or wrong.  The answers we get from analyzing will come from information that is incomplete or wrong.

Its common for me to get asked various questions about spiritual awakenings. To be perfectly frank here, I am really starting to detest that phrase. It is starting to get a vibe that almost makes it sound easy and something you have to do to get into the cool kids club. Like somehow its a…Continue…

Time and Change

secretsoftheserpent

Time = spirit.  Time is spirit in movement.  Time and being are the same.  Movement of desire. 

Time is the process of filling the void.  It is a vast movement of what we are a part of.  Time is perspective.  Time is activated by desire, eternity has no desire.Time is not speeding up, desires are amping up.  When we desire something time measures how long it takes to get what we desire.  Time is purely human.  Time starts with an act of self deception, Person you want to be is not authentic self.  Biological time starts with mother, needs of instinctual body is what time is measuring.  Without desire or delay of desire, there would be no time.

Empaths, their Conflicts and their Starlight

Soul Dreamers

By Phoenix the Elder –As I entered my midlife around thirty-eight, philosophy, metaphysics and psychotherapy, Jungian contemplative thought and any Buddhist philosophies had no real place in my life anymore. This is because I had spent time studying them in my younger days, and I was truly beginning to value my emotional body and wanted to really heal it deeply as an Empath.

I focused from that point on, with the hard work of the actual actions, holistic therapies and practices of dream work, consistent meditation in nature, silencing the mental body to slay it into submission. This allowed me to enter a space of leaving words, concepts and ideas that were outside the context of art and spirituality, concentrating my efforts into pure practices, healing modalities and disciplines that supported me as a sensitive and emotional dreaming type of human being.

The mind and its make us neither…

A Tree for Year Challenge

The Druid's Garden

Into the trees

One of the most common questions that people ask when they start down a druid or other nature-based spiritual path is: how do I connect deeply with nature?  Connecting to nature can happen in such a wide variety of ways.  It can happen through connecting with our heads, through learning, study, and engaging with books or classes.  It can happen through our hearts, where we emotionally connect with nature and places.  It can also happen through our bodies when we physically experience the natural world.  It can be through our spirits when we connect with the spirit of the tree.  But regardless of which of our selves and methods we use, it requires an investment of ourselves, our time, and building a relationship.

A while back, I wrote about the Druid’s Anchor Spot, which is a spot that you can use to regularly engage and observe…

Who is the Best Guru?

secretsoftheserpent

How can you tell if someone is leading me down the right path of enlightenment?  There are so many self help and so called spiritual gurus out there, how can you tell who is telling the truth?  These are the questions Im getting for the new year.  I guess people want to have 20/20 vision in the year 2020.  First and foremost if a person tells you they know the truth and are enlightened, run away.  Enlightenment is not in the hands of time.
