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 →
“Transformation begins at the point where there is no hope.” ~ James Hillman, Suicide and the Soul “At the core of the spiritual journey, religious traditions recognize the inevitability of darkness. Transition from “one degree of glory to another,” as... Continue Reading →
The ‘Wild Bee Wisdom‘ from Fiona MacLeod and David Wagoner spiraled up again to the surface in a conversation this morning with a fellow Via Transformativa sister.
I have deep appreciation for just how timeless this wisdom and inspiration is, so wanted to share that again in this freshly updated piece from the Sophia’s Children treasure-vaults.
If you’re of ‘this little clan’, as Fiona MacLeod wrote, you’ll recognize yourself in this.
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. Well-burnt toast.
We’ve been places, created things, experienced relationships, lost much, and have left (or been wrenched from) things and people as Life took us into radically new territory and explorations.
If we’ve been traveling a transformation path, our very way of perceiving and believing has been irrevocably altered.
We’ve crossed through threshold after threshold.
Sometimes these Wisdom-initiating shifts and transformation detours come via more radical means: the archetypal ‘shamanic lightning bolt’ (and shamanic ego ‘dismemberment’ and/or death), or by way of what the vision-poet writer Fiona MacLeod called the ‘dark and starless roads.’
If we’re lucky, in hindsight we see these life-altering events and seemingly meandering paths…

Here's another lovely musing from fellow mystic-writer (etc.) Mirabai Starr. I recently shared a perspective from her on the Feminine Mystic. This one is how she describes her own experience of walking the InterSpiritual Way. Different from interspiritual or multi-faith,... 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!
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…

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.
Big Love and Happy Equinox,
“In a time lacking in truth and certainty and filled with anguish and despair, no woman should be shamefaced in attempting to give back to the world, through her work, some portion of its lost heart.”
~ Louise Bogan, American Poet, and the fourth Poet Laureate to the Library of Congress (1897-1970)
Surely, if news headlines are any clue, the world has lost a good portion of its heart, and calls out for the restoration of its lost portions.
Restoring some portion of the world’s lost heart is the point of the Hero’s (or Heroine’s) Journey, or at least one of the shining facets of The Journey.
Those who’ve walked (or, like me, stumbled and crawled for a fair bit of) The Journey will know the truth in what Joseph Campbell…
