Strong at the Broken Places

"The world breaks everyone, and afterward many are strong at the broken places." Ernest Hemingway (This is an update and re-feature of a post I wrote in 2008, in my previous Engaged Spirituality, Mystic Activism blog. It seemed ripe for... Continue Reading →

Finding Kinship and Beauty in Unexpected Places

"She felt that somehow, wandering through uncharted territory, we might stumble upon something that will, in an instant, seem to represent who we are at the core. That was very much her philosophy of life—to not be limited by fear... Continue Reading →

Seeking the Changeless in Changing Times

“All times are changing times, but ours is one of massive, rapid moral and mental transformation. Archetypes turn into millstones, large simplicities get complicated, chaos becomes elegant, and what everybody knows is true turns out to be what some people... Continue Reading →

The Threat at My Door and Wild Grace Arising

It’s a record, I think, for me to have been away from Sophia’s Children (and, for the most part,  “radio silence” from the internet altogether) this long. There’s a reason for that -- threats at the door, literally, and super-quick... Continue Reading →

Life-Milestone Cycles and Big-Energy Activations Underway

There are several 'big energy' activations and/or life-milestone cycles underway just now. Here's a snapshot, and I have a few specific updates on the writing roster for a couple of these. The shifts and fluxes in the shared energy field... Continue Reading →

From what I’m feeling, experiencing, and hearing from a fair number of peeps, it’s a fine time for an Energies of Now update.

I’ve heard quite a few, “Oh thank God! I thought it was just me who was feeling (fill in the blank).”

I feel ya, truly I do.

That’s how it is, and that’s why we share. Compadres on the wild and wily Way.

Rather than recreate the wheel, I’ve updated a post that had a relevant ‘symptoms list’ and roster of helpful practices to ride the wave.

So here we are, my fellow Chaos Surfers and Transformativas!

Big Love,

Oh yeah, it’s been a doozy of a few days. Or week. Or more.

Peep-reports from the field, which sync with my own experiences and/or observations of those around me, suggest a Zap-Zone with a very stirred up, mucky shared field.

So after several requests for an Energies of Now ‘energy weather’ post, here it is. Truly, my pleasure.

First, the symptoms.

Second, possible energy/psychic ‘cocktail’ elements or influences.

Third, some self-care suggestions that I and others have found helpful … and regularly practice, update, upgrade, and tweek.

The Symptoms and Experiences

Sensitives, or people wired just so, who have shared energy updates with me report experiencing the following in the last week:

• unusual physical symptoms,

• waves of sadness or melancholy … some of them coming and going quite suddenly,

• disrupted sleep, disturbed dreams,

• free-floating underlying angst…

Monday Musing: Standing Quietly in the New Life?

One of my favorite medicine-poems: I have a feeling that my boat has struck, down there in the depths, against a great thing. And nothing happens! Nothing...Silence...Waves... -- Nothing happens? Or has everything happened, and are we standing now, quietly,... Continue Reading →

Freyja Day Reflection: Radical Discontinuity. No Maps.

Freyja Day Musing: Creativity and Wilderness

"Creative people don’t follow the crowds; they seek out the blank spots on the map. Creative people wander through faraway and forgotten traditions and then integrate marginal perspectives back to the mainstream. Instead of being fastest around the tracks everybody... Continue Reading →

“The Question Holds the Lantern”

"The question holds the lantern." This, from the late John O'Donohue, could in itself be a meditation, which I find to be the case with much of what he wrote. But here is a bit more from The Question Holds... Continue Reading →

Threshold Paths: Wild Bee Wisdom from the Dark and Starless Road

Most of us have experienced it at some point: "There's no going back." That's one of the big differences between change and transformation. With transformation, there is no 'back there' to return to, because 'back there' is rubble. Probably smoking rubble.... Continue Reading →

Wise Women and Mid-Life (Re)Blooming

Many of us have experienced, or are experiencing, a sort of radical rebirth, a reincarnation within this incarnation. We're living in uber-transformative times, so perhaps it comes as no surprise that transformation around us happens through transformation within us, even... Continue Reading →
