Opening Your Heart, Even in the Face of a Storm

By Inspiration, Oracle Guidance, Resources, Spirit Guides, Spiritual Growth, Well-being on Earth
Seasonal Healing Messages provide timeless help when you need it most. From storm to blue skies: As experienced at Niwot Ridge's Aspen Grove this week: "If you don't like the weather, wait 5-minutes" is a real thing here in Colorado. Message from the Aspens You humans think that you know everything. Sure, you can walk on water, but can you keep your heart from drowning in a storm? Can you sacrifice your fear of dying to the love of living? You dart about in fun one moment and cower in fear the next. You are a mammal. We show you a model. You can't become us, but you can use our wisdom in your own way. Just as our roots network, listening to  your intuition connects you to each other via truths worth honoring. Use your intuition and you will receive the validation you seek: The permission to love living, To walk with an open heart, To embrace the animal side of you, To honor more and more what this Earth and your life are really about. The Eco-System swirls with many harsh realities, yet is mixed with clarity, warmth and fresh air. All you have to do is share – intuitively. Grow where you are drawn, even if it seems no man (or anyone you know) has gone there before. Honor all forms along the way. Validate each being's unique expression. Find calm in the storm: Your heart is the eye. Your intuitive vision is the sky. Power is in our ability to bring validation to what is true and pure in all of your relationships: This is how we grow together. At our own pace. In our own way. Us, you, me, them, We. Only embracing it all will set you free. ROOTING INTO The primal experience of being human: in an instant the fear adrenaline switch can be turned on in our brain and body. Resisting, denying or trying to control it only creates shame. Learning to dance with your animal instincts is partnering with your body in the most powerful way. ENERGIES ON THE PLANET Surface level: A sense of defeat and retreat swims around as we enter into a new phase. With the destructive yet constructive fire storms of the fall, many were asked to rise. Appearing to some as dramatic, a desire to have results sooner was at the core. Results are indeed coming sooner, but not yet. In the air we embrace the unknown that is happening outside, knowing that the light, certainty and confidence are all rising on the inside. Touch upon that which is ready to dissolve and watch the darkness crumble. And retreat from the rest. All in good time. Settle the light into your heart and soul. STAYING CONNECTED TO THE DIVINE Stir the dichotomies within you, knowing that God is guiding your hand. Co-sprinkle some magic into your everyday life and into the season. Let your creations simmer where they need to be more digestible. Happy Winter Solstice,

Above the Clouds, Turning to Gold

By Inspiration, Oracle Guidance, Resources, Spiritual Growth
Seasonal Healing Messages provide timeless help when you need it most. Message from the Aspens Relaxing inside beneath The blankets of grey clouds The mists in the air nourish and keep Our awareness crisp As ever so coolly We sink inside beneath The green growth It is surrounded by dissolution That we find resolution Transmuting our grievances Of what might have been Into heart opening knowing That it is all actually perfect The season is changing And it is sometimes sad We grieve what might have been harnessed By the heat of the sun Only to realize that as we cozy up inside, the flame rises from within AND WE SHINE GOLDEN Already surrendered into greater Depths Already beginning again Taking the next step on the upward spiral Growing taller, older and wiser Relaxing into our network is the way forward Above the clouds The air is crisp and clean Better than anything you've ever seen Magic lives in the mystery Beauty is birthed from the unknown Willingness to rise from within Is walking the journey Of your heart and soul Finding enough is more You are enough AND YOU ARE GOLDEN ROOTING INTO Getting cozy with what's beneath: Both your joy and the aspects of yourself that you keep hidden live in the depths. Anytime is an opportunity to nurture yourself through another layer of resistance. Making friends with the shadow parts of yourself allows you to access the expansive and unlimited truth. Sit in front of the fire with those aspects. Take them for a dip in the hot tub. Show them the light. Be your own Mother and Father. Ask others for what you need. Take care of yourself. Feel the warmth of filling your well. ENERGIES ON THE PLANET Surface level: s p a c e y  and DESTRUCTION. Feels like clouds and storms. Old systems that are no longer working are falling apart. The game of karma is falling apart. Some souls are scrambling to let go and complete. Others are stubbornly clinging to a past reality. Many of us are experiencing fuzziness and/or a sense of being in a surreal world. Observe and witness what is going on around you and in the news. Notice the orchestra of vibrations at play. In the air our higher selves have taken the reins in order to steer and keep us safe. Anchor the transformation into your body by connecting with appreciation in your heart center. What about yourself, your life, others and the world are you grateful for? As you appreciate, you receive and recharge your power to come out of the destruction powerfully creating. STAYING CONNECTED TO THE DIVINE Stay above the clouds that are not yours ... focus on creativity! As you let go and transform, what is rising up inside of you? If you're tempted to take any of it too seriously, remember that creating is about the journey. The process is the goal. We get what we want in life by allowing it to manifest. Control has its place, but where is it limiting you? As you let go of control where it doesn't belong, freedom, permission and creative joy flow. Happy Equinox,

Diversify to Move Forward

By Inspiration, Oracle Guidance, Resources, Spiritual Growth
Seasonal Healing Messages provide timeless help when you need it most. Message from the Aspens on Diversity We are one, yet we are separate. In various sizes, shapes and ages we grow. With the help of the elements Sun Water Air and Earth Of course Earth, that is where we rise from our roots. And we are not alone: our network co-exists with many other species ... trees, flowers, rocks, birds, bugs, elk, bears and more: Often times you see us from afar We blanket the hillside. From near, we invite you in to explore Getting curious if there's more than meets the eye. Is your soul seeking to diversify? What might you find if you open your heart to the new life budding from your core? With no allure besides the tingling of inspiration, all there is to bring forth is YOU. It is you who chooses to choose. ROOTING INTO The wisdom and protection of the bigger picture: not all barriers are made to be broken through or even to block something out. Nature protects itself in a very unassuming way, or perhaps a totally assuming way. The experience of gleaning wisdom doesn't always care if the jungle is hard to walk through. All variety of species interweave themselves seeking to live. Even in nature, it is about so much more than mere survival. Living is about playing a role in the eco-system of it all. ENERGIES ON THE PLANET Surface level: getting mentally stuck on "Why?" is a possible challenge. Regardless of what is being played, the question "Why?" is often there. The big existential "Why?". Tune into the answer by feeling. The answer to "Why?" can always be explained by a feeling ... get curious and wonder: is the feeling expansive, connected, peaceful, or ... what does the answer to your question feel like? In the air are clear visions being confused with doubt and uncertainty. Rise above with grace and ease. STAYING CONNECTED TO THE DIVINE Grace and ease have nothing to do with "figuring it out". They are definitely not problem solving. However, bringing forth grace and ease is helpful to move through challenges. When you bring ease to something difficult, the path of resolution gracefully presents itself ... not always all at once, but often one step at a time. Fear of the unknown can make it hard to stay in ease, but just like you know where to place your foot in order to take a fully supported step, your spirit always knows where to go next (shaking in your boots or not). Grace knows no fear yet doesn't deny it. It flows anyway. Where in your self may you open up to ease and let grace guide?
