Question: I really enjoy good food and I think that eating is a joy. I also enjoy listening to cultural music, designing and wearing colorful clothing, and painting provocative art. I have heard that in the near future we will feed ourselves through the solar waves of our local sun, lose our hair, and even wear the same garment. I can see how this might simplify things considerably, but why would our evolution require us to abandon customs that are unique to Earth? Isn't the earth exceptionally precious as it is, diversity and all?
The surface of the earth bears certain scars, witness to events of
major historic perspective. Beautiful canyons, rivers and lakes erase,
or least hide, evidence of massive and unexpected devastation.
Likewise, deserts lie naked and exposed, unclothed and unable to mask
the corruption that changed verdant green resources into dry sand.
History has also left scars behind where wars have changed the course
of events, and monuments now stand in place of men.

I discovered channeling at a very young age. It opened up a new world for me, one that merged wisdom with compassion, and love with understanding. I quickly learned that invisible guides and teachers were just as real as ones that I could see. I knew that I could touch and be touched profoundly by a word as easily as by the wind, as it danced and imitated Spirit for my education and amusement. I did not imagine all those years ago that my future would include teaching others how to channel, yet today it is one of my most favorite things to do.
May is a perfect and important month for regenerating our life force and the animas vigoras, an ancient term for the fire of inspiration, which when invoked, ignites our passion to thrive. Look around. Some of us have been in hibernation mode while others hover near survival. This is not what we came here to be and do!
Mythology and folklore is humanity "attempting to explain its world to itself," triggering the unconscious to "remember its own way to create, to unravel the old so that it can then weave the new and the next into this particular life."
The winter solstice has risen and the day is new. The physical sun has returned to reunite us with the spiritual sun within and to remind us that we are the light of the world. The sun is beginning to move away from its maximum declination and can be seen as it continues along its journey. And now it is time for us to do the same.
Solstice means "sun stands still" and appropriately describes how the winter (and summer) solstice sun appears to hang on the day's horizon, as if something has halted its progress across the heavens. For three days it remains virtually unchanged until finally its movement is visible. It is reborn and its journey begins anew.
Winter Solstice is the birth of the new solar year and is symbolized by the dark, or midnight sun. The midnight solstice aligns the world of humanity with the world of the eternal, joining both in a sacred union that repeats each year at the same time.
Dear Gaia, I woke up the other day with these words, "I hope we can wake up in time." Time may be an illusion, but the illusion of time running out is certainly doing something very interesting to human consciousness. Asense of urgency seems apparent in most of us, yet complacency regarding our life and our future still seems to rule of the day.
