Energies of Now: Receive, Reflect, Restore … Love

In Dark-of-the-Moon-esque times, we rest into and align with the very Lunar, receptive, reflective energy of the coming New Moon in the very waters ruled by Luna. And then some. Tending, nurturing, slowing, receiving, rejuvenating, listening, dreaming, visioning, flowing, loving.... Continue Reading →

For many horizon-edge walkers and vision-seeders, transformation agents, and similar culture-shifters, transformation fatigue and burnout are occupational hazards.

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed and to become fatigued or heavy hearted at what seems a daunting task in the face of myriad epic challenges that roll in like waves from the ocean.

I’m pretty resilient, and devoted to The Work and the practices that allow and support it, but sometimes I — like all of us — feel the bone-weariness of transformation fatigue and other occupational hazards.

I’ve learned from experience that dipping often into the deep, rich wellsprings of inspiration from our kindred-spirit edge walkers and vision-seeders is vital … as are other disciplines and practices that help us to be as we are (and as we’re here on this planet…

QuoteWorthy: “The older I become…”

Another ‘Tis the Time and Season‘ reflection, stirred and updated from the Sophia’s Children treasure-vaults (so very Uranus-Pluto!).

Whether we’re in the deep-Yin season of Winter, settling into night from day, or in a Winter-season in our own lifecycle journey, it’s always wise to honor the restoration that will otherwise stalk and have its way with us in other (usually less pleasant) ways.

Plus, Wisdom and Wisdom-sourced vision gestate from and are more easily called up in this season, and with the current archetypal energies in which we dance and swirl right about now.

Happy dancing, swirling, and deep restoration.

Big Love and Be Well,
Jamie

“The older I become,

the more I sense,

the less I speak,

the more I pray —

in ever so many ways.”

I included this wonderful reflection from Clarissa Pinkola-Estes’ book Untie the Strong Woman in a previous Sophia’s Children post you might enjoy:

Storms, Cycles & Black Madonnas

And other mentions of Clarissa Pinkola-Estes in my Reasserting Our Wildish Nature post, and in an homage to the honoring of Deep Yin and the Circadian Rhythms of Winter, in the Sophia’s Children treasure vaults.

A Musingly Yours,

Jamie

Finding Center in Simple Things
