Shining Heart: The Morning Star Rises in My Heart

On Restoring the World’s Lost Heart

In this season (and greater time) of sifting the wheat from the chaff, and restoring the sacred to its rightful place in both the mundane and the lofty, it’s a fine time, too, to resurface this previous Sophia’s Children post on Restoring the World’s Lost Heart.

There was a flower in her heart, it just needed more room to bloom. And when she let it free, she showed the world that sometimes the most beautiful things can grow in the darkest of places without the need of light. – rm drake

Shining Heart: The Morning Star Rises

Some traditions refer to the Divine Spark or Inner Light within us, which is hidden from us, then found, cultivated, and shared forth as 'medicine' or remedy for the world in these times. This awareness was part of the deeper,... Continue Reading →

Home and the Radar of Your Heart

We learn and hear a lot of cliches about home - what it means, where it is, how we find it, when do we feel at home and when do we feel displaced, unmoored; what we do if our sense... Continue Reading →

Fire Trines: Invoking Whole-Heartedness From the Ashes

We've recently gained some much-needed fire in the astro-energetic alchemy cocktail, which is likely most welcome after several years of depth-diving in watery realms. At least I welcome it. Though I truly appreciate underwater cave diving and Lunar-gift reclaiming well... Continue Reading →
