Of Spirit & Earth – How to Tune in to Nature’s Cycles

We are infinite.  Sacred beings.  Born of stardust and molten rock.  Swirling tides and the passion between lips.  We move in spirals with the seasons and the skies, and we tend to forget the magick that pours through our essence.  It is time to remember.

I’d like to share this with you, as I’ve had a powerful impact from this song since I was about sixteen. It sinks me deeply into my universal awareness, observing participation with archetypes of my cyclical flowing pagan roots, and an experience of the beauty of what it means to bridge earth and spirit in the midst of the infinite.

Ritual.  Bring it into your life.  In ways small and large.  In harmony with your essence, and touching the existence we were born of, whether by the cycles of the moon, or the sun, or the seasons, or simply reaching into the mystery of night with a candle and smiling into the infinite potential that you are here to activate for yourself.

Let your intentions for your life become a sacred moment.  Sit down.  Tell the Universe what you want to create.  Ask for guidance and insight.  And listen.

Tune this moment into the cycles of nature in whatever way feels natural.  I write my intentions at either the full or new moon, based on how I’m guided, send energy into them over the month, and then release them with pure trust to the Universe by fire, outside, under the light, or the shadow, knowing that they will be born in accordance with the flow that is needed in my life, and all of life around me.

And at times, I simply draw down the energy of the full moon, grounding it into the earth with the intention of illumination and harmony.  For All of Life.  Rippling out from the place where I stand, like a silver liquid pool, ever-expanding.

Whatever you choose to do, let it be your own.  In alignment with your inner truth and knowing.  And know that as you go, I am always walking beside you, a sister honored to be a part of your journey, and share in our sacred wisdom, Goddess to Goddess.

Bright blessings,

Jennifer Rae

An alternative perspective on: Why you aren’t where you’d like to be

1. There’s a bigger picture.

What you’re wanting might be one small piece of a puzzle that will change your whole life years from now. Diving deeply into creating, or teaching, or immersing yourself in one path might prevent you from a whole variety of world views or experiences that transform you in ways that you can hardly begin to imagine yourself to be. Everything is temporary. Just like the 80s, and the lifespan of your favorite cat, things will always complete a cycle and become something new with the passing of time.

Your current experience of spirituality will evolve as new ideas reach you. Your entire outlook is likely only a distant cousin of the one you had ten years ago. Your current approach might not fit your future nature.

There is so much that I look back on and think, “wow, if I’d only known who I’d be a year from then, I’d know why that didn’t work out.” We are always on the verge of a breakthrough or transformation, and when we’re heading a certain direction, we never know what The Universe is going to surprise us with that changes us from the ground up.

Considering that what you’re desperately attached to, the path you’re taking towards the goal that you neeeed to work out with a exasperation and pain… miiiiight not be the best option, will open up access to the ideas and possibilities that would fit who you’re becoming like a glove.

2. Impatience, escapism, and perfectionism…

They hold us back more than we know. We want to be the brightest and purest lights, the most dedicated, the most free, the most accomplished in our ideal sacred profession. We want to notice only the things that we feel good about. And it causes us to overlook a lot.

Where we are now is not an accident. What does this place have to teach us, that will help us to create a stable future that has room for all the flexibility we need as individuals, while embracing the reality of our position unconditionally? What do we participate in on a daily basis that helps us to move forward in a way that supports us as a whole?

3. Influence and Intimidation

We are surrounded by people with opinions.

This spiritual teacher says this, my friends think that, my heart wants this, my rational mind thinks I’m a cuckoo bird. What do I do?

You look at two things:

  1. What’s healthiest and most fulfilling for you long term, and…
  2. What is the most steady path to get you there without sacrificing your values.

Everyone thinks that they know what’s best for those around them, but these are merely birdsong around a tree. Feel into your depth of your roots for answers, and feel how beautiful sweet blossoms can ripen fruits at the height of your being as you focus on nourishing yourself from your center.

We are so much more than who we are in this moment. And when we embrace that the version of ourselves we see in the mirror on this day, is evolving in accordance with our sacred inner truth… we find the strength to lead ourselves in new directions. With a sense of wholeness, regal prowess, and integrity.

Be well, my fellow life-shapers.

And as always, I am here with you, Goddess to Goddess.

All my love,

Aquarian Goddess Jen
