I have been joining you in performing the practices to step into a deeper relationship with Earth, Wind, Water, and Fire. I can really feel a difference in my body. I feel a deeper connection to myself as well as to all of life.
One day I was eating a small apple from my apple tree. I suddenly could feel that we are connected to the spirit of every life form we eat. I could feel roots growing through my body and a deeper connection to nature. That of course awakened different parts of my imagination, and I started thinking how every time we eat we connect to the life form we ingest and threads of connection form inside of us.
I started thinking about how those of us who are committed to our spiritual practices often start our day, our spiritual work, and so on with gratitude. And during the month of November people in America celebrate Thanksgiving.
This led me to wonder about the spiritual difference if before we give thanks we ask permission from the land where we got our food from and the spirit of everything. Ask permission to eat the bounty that Mother Earth provides for us along with her partnership with air, water, the sun, the moon, the constellations.
If you ask permission “to take” first I wonder how that would change your own internal landscape, your feelings, thoughts, your health and your connection to life.
We certainly want to keep up our gratitude practices and even bring them deeper into our field of energy. But what if we added the practice of asking for permission as well as asking for encouragement on ways we can lighten our step on Gaia.
As we do this I imagine the forces of nature, the ancestors, and the ancient ones singing songs of gratitude and thanksgiving for us.
This practice might also help us to make dietary and lifestyle changes as we tune in deeper ways to the energies we are absorbing.
The full moon is November 23. Let’s bring a deeper awareness and wake up fully to our spirit within which is simply pure divine light. Don’t contain it. Let it flow with abandon instead of trying to contain your light. Let us join together as we share transformative light with the Earth and all of life. Think about how the sun, the moon, and the stars transform growth. Are you shining your light strongly enough to be a transformative force?
If you are a new reader of The Transmutation News, welcome. Please read the instructions for our full moon ceremony by visiting “Creating a Human Web of Light” on the homepage.
A message came to me during a walk. When the world dissolves there is only spirit. By going through the initiations we are experiencing now we are dissolving into our spiritual selves.
I have been having quite the wild, fabulous, amazing ride sharing my new beautiful books. Please do me the favor of reviewing these books on Amazon. In today’s world getting good Amazon reviews lets people know the book is worthwhile reading. If you like The Book of Ceremony and The Hidden Worlds please help me to get the word out!
Join me In Ceremony
In times of destabilization, as we are in now, myself and thousands of others have found by performing ceremonies we step into a feeling of being connected to our spiritual light and the creative forces of the universe. People around the world have been stepping into the ancient transformative field of ceremonial work for tens of thousands of years.
Performing ceremonies helps us to identify the intentions and passion of our soul, heal old trauma, abuse, wounds, hurts, betrayals, honor changes, receive guidance, create a doorway into the unseen realms to communicate with the helping spirits from the depth of our soul, and to perform the work we need to bring in new healthier ways of living.
Ceremony makes us feel solid, empowered, and that we have the spiritual muscles to ride out challenges. And when we join our hearts to gather with friends, loved ones, our local and global community the effects of the work are exponential.
