There Is NOWHERE We Can Escape For Safety and Comfort Except By Resting In Our Spirit and In the Spiritual Practices We Engage

Thank you Sandra for the practical tools of daily meditation and for guiding us on exactly what to do with these meditations!

July 2011 Transmutation News

If you ask any spiritual teacher or shaman for his or her assessment of what is going on today, you will get the answer that human beings are so out of balance that everything around us is happening in extremes.

Getting back into balance is key to healing the planet and ourselves.

For years, I have written humans have become disconnected from nature causing emotional and physical illness as well as planetary problems.

We have become so dependent on science and technology that we have moved our energy into a mental/rational arena. We live in our thinking minds instead of in our bodies.

I have written about reconnecting once again with nature and the elements � earth, air, water, and fire-- all of which give us life. And together we have been working with connecting with the heart, wisdom, and light of the earth.

We are also the earth and all the elements. It is time to stop trying to understand life, and time to live life! We need to move away from being focused on concepts, theories, and the rational, which in turn, has caused many of us to create too much separation between the mind and the body.

Many have separated our spiritual practices from our physical lives, yielding an imbalance in this area also. We meditate, do yoga, chi gung, journey into the invisible realms, etc. and then go about our day without connecting the spiritual power we just manifested into our minute-to-minute lives.

It is time for us to fully embody earth wisdom, and to stop thinking about spiritual practices but live them. And to do this we must be embodied. We need to stop �going� to spiritual realities. Instead we need to experience our spirit in every cell of our being.

The term I want to focus on this month is embodiment. Allow yourself to feel spiritual energies in your body. Drink water, eat food, breathe air, absorb the sun-- � absorb nurturance and life into every cell of your body.

Feel your intuition and your light pulsing through your body and flowing through you.

If you work with helping guardian spirits feel their spiritual power within you.

A Hopi friend of mine shared with me once that when the Hopi journey, they take their bodies with them. Shamanism is not an out-of-practice. For shamanic practices have always taught how to live a harmonious life connected with nature, and you must be embodied to do this, meaning you must be present in your physical body.

Don't just let your mind travel when you do spiritual work, rather make it a full body experience.

The planet is reflecting back our extreme imbalance and states of separation in all areas of our lives.

You are body, mind, and spirit, and it time to reconnect with yourself again. You cannot connect with the deep earth wisdom or with nature until you reconnect with your own body.

Reflect on how you have been separating what you learn conceptually with bringing the knowledge into your body awareness. Reflect on whether you connect or if you separate your spiritual life from your body and physical life.

Take time, reflect and ask yourself: How can I embody all I have learned? How can I embody spirit so each of my cells pulses with the light and the vitality of my inner spirit? How do I connect my heartbeat ...with the heartbeat of the earth? How do I embody my spirit?

The next step is to embody the answers and live them. You already know how to do this: In this way, we breathe spirit and light through our presence with each step we take in the world.

We become sacred ourselves, and all life reflects our sacredness (instead of reflecting our separateness, as it's doing now). We bless ourselves and all of life. And all that we bless blesses us in return.

Of utmost importance: This is not a time to let your light go out or dissipate into the world. We must retain our energy and all ride the waves of change and transition right now. And it is important to ride the waves with grace by keeping your inner light burning bright and shining through you. We must become a stronger presence in the world.

This is a time to really focus on your transfiguration practice as discussed in Medicine for the Earth and How to Thrive in Changing Times. And make sure you are embodying your light!

As we continue to experience so much change to the earth due to climate changes, it is important for us to shift our perspective about what is happening. We continue to see much deterioration happening on political and economic levels.

Over the years, I have been writing about the change in consciousness and evolution that humans are going through. Using the principle of Oneness: All of life --all species and the earth herself-- are going through a change and a death. It is important to remember death is not an end, rather a transition and a rite of passage into something new.

All of life is part of a collective dream. As spiritual practitioners, we must acknowledge how the current dream is dissolving and something new will be reborn, which is beyond what we can consciously imagine.

I have explained when a person is diagnosed with an illness, then it's necessary to perceive the person in his/her divine light. For we want to feed the energy of divine perfection that creates healing, rather than feeding the power of the illness: What we give energy and focus our attention on, we also give life.

We must focus on the light of the earth. We need to surrender to the changes that are happening, because we don't know what will be born.

Yet at the same time it is important to create a path where beauty can flow by continuing to envision a dream for the earth --and all of life-- which embraces love, light, balance, harmony, beauty, peace, equality, and abundance.

There is nowhere we can escape for safety and comfort except by resting in our spirit and in the spiritual practices we engage.

The landscape of the earth is evolving and changing just like it has done throughout time. Land masses have changed over time and will continue to do so.

The destruction we experience is hard on the people and animals who suffer loss of home and lives.

And at the same time, we must recognize the earth is evolving and changing into new landscapes just like human consciousness is evolving into a new landscape.

The key is to continue to perceive the earth in her spiritual aspect and divine spiritual light.

The key is for all of us to continue to build a beautiful and strong spiritual field of light with all the spiritual work we do together

The full moon is July 15. Let us continue weaving a human web of light by embodying this light and shining our light pulsing together as we connect with our global spiritual community. Let us do this throughout the day, and start to move this from a monthly practice to a daily practice.

If you are new reader of the Transmutation News, please read Creating A Human Web of Light for the instructions on our monthly ceremony.

I have given many practices to work with in the last few months. Make sure you are continuing the practices that call to you... those you feel passionate about. Make sure you are weaving the threads and making the connections between your daily practices, your physical body, your daily life. We must strengthen our weaving by connecting ALL through living and embodying a spiritual life. In this way, we embody a state of wholeness, power, balance, and light.
