How many of you feel that the Earth changes do not affect you or that there is nothing you can do?
How many of you want to ignore it all and hope it will go away?
How many don't care? How many are scared?
We can put our heads in the sand and hope it all blows over but reality does not go away because we want it to... my Teacher Okwaho once said, that "Reality is that which still exists even when you stop believing in it".
The reality is that life is changing and quickly. The Wheel is changing, things are speeding up and we are all on the same train barreling down an unknown track towards an unknown destiny.
So what do we do about it?
What I have been learning and healing and teaching for over 30 years has been to prepare for my death and yes... resurrection. I am preparing for my journey to the Afterlife.
When I was 32 years old, I almost died of a major illness. I had several surgeries and when it was all said and done I realized that I was not ready to die.
I also learned that the most imporatant thing in life is to find resolution to my stories, to find consciousness and answers to my life journey.
It put me on a quest that led me to my path and purpose.
I remember when the year 2000 was looming towards us and people were panicing about the computors crashing and everything falling apart. I just stood there and witnessed the confusion and fears around me thinking... "I don't need to go start an off-the-grid community or stockpile supplies... I just need to make sure I am ready to die at any given moment."
But... I am still here, we are still here. And I still have a lot to learn and to share, but my time is running out too. I do not have the energy I did when I was young. Doing Circles takes a lot of effort and Dreaming. The Medicine Wheel that my Teachers, Lisa and Gerard have taught me... is straight from the Dreaming. It is not for everyone. But those who feel called will know who they are.
I teach what I have learned and want to continue learning. In the past I did Moonlodges for women because I needed to work on my Moons, or Inner Children as we call them.
I used to teach the Medicine Wheel as a tool for self-exploration from a Shamanic Perspective, as I was learning about my Personal wheel at the time, my Roles, Totems and Fragments, past lives and more. Now I am focused on integrating my life stories and becoming a better Dreamer from a Shamanic Indigenous perspective. I am fortunate to have Master Indigenous Dreamers and Spirit Guides to help me on my journey. The Circles will still teach you a lot about yourself. It is a tool for self-discovery and a way to connect to Nature and Spirit. These are being lost in our Modern world.
Time is running out, not just for me, but for Mother Earth, hence for all of us. We cannot live without her but she can and will live long after humanity ceases to exist.
All we can do is to try to be ready to die in a good way. That is all we can do on any given day.
This is not a morbid thought for me. It is a reality, a truth that many like to avoid facing. Life is not something to be taken for granted, death is not something to fear or ignore until its too late.
My parents left a mess for me to clean up after they died, both the physically and otherwise. Our family stories are passed down from one generation to another until someone does the work to change the script. It is not an easy job when things have piled up for generations.
I do not want to not want to leave a mess behind for my son. I do not want to contribute to the mess we are creating on the planet. Yet because I am human, I am part of the problem. I am trying to be part of the solution as well.
I am not saying we are all going to die tomorrow, but we should live out lives as each day is our last, as much as possible.
Having faced death more than once in my life has given me a clearer perspective in the sacredness and beauty of life. It has shown me how precious, fragile and uncertain things are. We should not take anything for granted. We need to be open to the unknown, to change, to healing and learning, to becoming conscious of ourselves and all that is around us.
I know life it stress-filled these days for everyone. We are living the changes in so many ways. At work, at home, in our relationships, our health, finances... it is all being affected whether you realize it or not. Having lived many decades gives me a larger perspective on things.
How do you stay balanced, strong, brave... and continue going forward with confidence on your journey, not knowing where you are going? How to you trust your Soul's journey?
