Earth Relationship Experiences -Awakening Your Many Sensory Intelligences

If you want to develop your consciousness beyond the conceptual confines of your culture and lineage you must go to Nature. Only Nature can unfold in you the ways of the Wise. Only Nature can provide you with the foundation and direction for your fulfillment. As you take steps to heal any estrangement from Nature you will develop joyful, responsible and attractive bonds with Nature that reduce your fears and loneliness. Deeply reconnecting with Nature shows you your wholeness and re-awakens your many forms of Natural Intelligences, Attractions, and Loves.

As you come to know again your own unity with Earth – which includes all of Earth’s creatures, and spirit, and eco-systems -you re-bond with […]

The Sabbitical

Except for very brief periods, I’ve worked steadily since I was 16 years old. First job was as a meat wrapper in the A & P grocery store which was over the railroad tracks from my house on Railroad Ave. Tells you a little bit about that house.

In early April I turned 67 years old. 51 years of working. After the A & P grocery store stint I have been mostly self-employed except for a few years as a Pre-school teacher. During all those working years I never took more then a week or 10 days off at a time. For many years now I day dream about the imaginings I have about European paid vacations – a month or more at a time. How […]

The Primal Force

“Nature and women hold the original primal force that arises spontaneously. This creative force is the first element and the ground from which all elements of life on Earth emerge. It is original wholeness and oneness. Nature and women hold these earliest elements of existence from which all manifestation arises.” – MaryAnn Copson

Turning To the Light

You enhance your self worth and understanding by identifying with Earth as your Self, your “other body”.
 

“The same stream of life that runs through my veins night and day runs through the world and dances in rhythmic measures. It is the same life that shoots in joy through the dust of earth in numberless blades of grass and breaks into tumultuous waves of leaves and flowers. It is the same life that is rocked in the ocean-cradle of birth and death, in ebb and in flow. I feel my limbs are made glorious by the touch of this world of life. And my pride is from the life throb of ages dancing in my blood this moment.”  […]

Herbalism As Eco-Therapy ~ Part 2

 The Way of The Wise Woman Wortcunner Work ~

Sensual Beings and Attractions

We are sensual beings – everything that we know about any part of the world – subtle to gross – is gathered through our sensory perceptions.

These days our senses have become dull – not necessarily because of our modern day world but because we have shut our self off from the source of our senses – Earth.  This has resulted in becoming disconnected from our natural rhythms and thus we have become somewhat handicapped in being able to access our full sensory potential.

By placing your self back into the ground of your beingness – back with Earth/Nature – you begin your process of reconnecting to your […]

Herbalism As Eco-Therapy- Part 1

Did you ever walk along outside and get a sense that you might have heard some message – or something?

Plants talk.  You know that by now. Plants continually are calling you to come join them in a journey through your mutli-dimensional awareness to the wholeness of yourself.

At its heart, herbal medicine is about taking the journey into deep healing for yourself. The plants have things to say to you about yourself, your personal healing, and how you can become the stewards of their secrets. They invite you to step into this deep healing and with their assistance carry it into yourself and in doing that take a step to heal the world.

Plants aren’t just remedies – they are consciousness. Each type of Plant carrying its […]

Nature Is Your Larger Body

“What we experience Nature experiences. And what Nature experiences we experience. You are Nature and Nature is you. All forms of conscious are one and the same. Just as every cell in your body is your body. Nature is your larger body. And you are Nature’s cell.

All consciousness -including Earth and beyond – are part of a global/universal community where we all share common sense (our commonly shared set of sensory perceptions) and we all have continuous and current communication flowing to, from, and through all for the well being of all.” ~MaryAnn Copson

Notice When It Happens

“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your Heart and try to Love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer…”
– Rainer Maria Rilke

Be attentive. Notice when it happens.

It is likely that you will think it nothing. Dismiss it. Call it foolishness and go on as if nothing has happened. That day when your life suddenly all makes sense.

Festive Imbolc Bread

The recipe is based on Jewish Challah bread or as we like to call it in Poland – Chałka  by Eric Treuille

 This bread is so very yummy and so very soothing for the soul.

Imbolc – One of the 8 Great Harvest Festivals

The Light Returning

From Yule to Imbolc darkness reigns until we notice the returning of the light. The fires of Imbolc signified both the fire of fertility within Earth and the fires of the sun. The nights gradually shorten and the days gradually lengthen. Bonfires and candles were used in rituals as magical encouragement of the sun. Candles were left burning in window all night or carried in procession to mark this seasonal passage.

Imbolc, is known by many names in different cultures – Oimealg, Candlemas Day, GroundHog Day, La Fheile Bride (Ireland),  Gwyl Mair Dechraur Gwanwyn (Wales),  Laa’L Bresshey (on the Isle of Man), Goel Dantolyon (Brittany).  

The word Imbolc is thought to mean “the milk […]

The Festival of Brighid ~ The Quickener

In Ireland, Imbolc is called La Fheile Bride because it is the festival of the Goddess Brigid or Bride. Known also as Brigdhe, Bridie, Bree-je, and Brigit.  Brighid is the patroness of flocks, herds, and motherhood. In Ireland, Feb. 2 – Imbolc is the day of St. Brigit who has been known as the White Goddess and the “quickening Triple Muse”.

Imbolc was dedicated to the triple Brighid, who was believed to be born in a flaming house in the sun and usher in fertility and new life for the dead. At Imbolc Brighid’s Maiden Goddess form is celebrated.

Brighid’s colors were red, black, and white. Her sacred animals were the White Cow and sometimes the snake. Her flower was the […]

My New Year’s Wish For You

We can obtain no peaceful good without reestablishing our conscious awareness of our inherent natural being with Earth and Nature. It is not only that Nature plays a vital role for us and we play a vital role for Nature it is truly that neither of us is whole and complete without the other.

There is a difference between being “part of” and being “is”.

What we experience Nature experiences. And what Nature experiences we  experience. You are Nature and Nature is you. All forms of conscious are one and the same. Just as every cell in your body is your body. Nature is your larger body. And you are Nature’s cell.

All consciousness -including Earth and beyond – are part of a global/universal community where we all […]

The Turning of the Wheel of the Year – Winter Solstice

Mid-December is thus one of the most positively magical times of the year.  Things are possible during December’s darkening days that are not even dreamt of at other spokes of the Wheel of the Year.  We should use this magic as a vehicle for deepening our awareness of the world around us and preparing our souls for the ongoing pilgrimage of our lives.  A seeker of Wisdom in the thrall of Winter’s Solstice should consider their celebrations as a spiritual pilgrimage or even a quest, during which, through the disciplined use of the spiritual imagination, he or she may encounter one’s own truest self along the way and in communion with Spirit. Montague Whitsel

Winter Solistice this year of 2015 is on December solstice 2015: […]

The Four Enemies of a Woman of Knowledge

When starting out on a grand journey like taking up your Woman Shaman Priestess Healer path, or journeying into your power along any path, it is important to remember that not only will there be many attractions and fulfillment along the way but there will also be many challenges, obstacles and blocks along the way. The Mysteries do not open to you lightly but ask of you much dedication, discipline, engagement and change.

A Contemplation for you as you make your choices.

In order to arrive at what you do not know,
You must go by the way which is the way of ignorance. ~T.S. Eliot
