I sense a kindred nature to my own:

Thus speaks perceptive feeling

As in the sun-illumined world

It merges with the floods of light;

To thinking’s clarity

My feeling would give warmth

And firmly bind as one

The human being and the world.

Taken from The Calendar of The Soul by Rudolf Steiner, translated by Ruth and Hans Pusch

To me, this is a message of grounding ourselves firmly within our human form and within the arms of the Great Mother.  Allow our thinking to glow in wisdom, to pull in elements of our emotions and to begin to feel the connection between ourselves and this place.

We must always be working from a double view — one view of the spiritual self and one view from our incarnated self.   One of Doreen Virtue’s oracle cards reads something like:  Ground Yourself.  Although it’s pleasant to drift heavenward, your work and presence is needed here on earth.

Now that the earth is warming up (for those of us in the northern hemisphere, anyway), we can begin to walk barefoot, feeling the subtle textures of the earth under our feet.  We can touch and smell the blossoms and emerging leaves.

I even picked strawberries from the field the other day.  The color, the fragrance and the texture of those gorgeous berries kept me moving through the rows, picking more and more.  I ended up taking home eight pounds!  We were eating strawberries for days!  We all loved them.  To be so closely connected with the source of our food is a great way to feel grounded.

I am no expert in Anthroposophy, but I like the challenge of Steiner’s meditations.  I like the stirring in my soul as I try to focus my mind enough to bring the words into my heart.

I’ll post Steiner’s weekly verses.  Let me know what you think.  They follow the rhythm of the seasons and festivals.


Hi, friends!

For any of you who read my last post, remember I said I’d get around to figuring out why I drew to me that unpleasant task of cleaning up my dog’s accident?

Well I did.  It was a message to myself that I’ve been surrounded by other people’s s**t lately.  Um hmmm.  Got it.  Point taken, Self.

So, I cleaned this mess up, but in general, I’ll let others handle their own messes.  Unless they ask for my help and then I will be honored to assist — while remaining energetically neutral, that is.

You know, it’s funny.  I was sort of getting it along the way . . .  I knew I wasn’t feeling great, physically or psychically.  I knew I was feeling energetically heavy — I did the clearing the other day (and I did some venting to a couple of friends and my dear husband).

But what a clear, unavoidable, smelly, messy, spot-on message the accident was!

You’ve gotta love it!  There’s brilliance there . . .

[My angels are standing around clapping and nodding at me for putting it all together for myself . . .  Thanks, angels!]

Okay, so I’m sitting here doing the “final analysis” on the dog s**t thing.  One part of me says, don’t leave people locked in the laundry room and stuff like this won’t happen . . .  no, that’s not quite it . . .

The angels tell me not to get drawn into other people’s dramas.  Stay separate from them.  Let other people learn as they’ll learn and if they ask for guidance, I’ll be glad to help.  Otherwise let them be.  Stay energetic separate.  Certainly, don’t follow people down the vibrational ladder — that’s not a bit helpful to me or to them.

Stay vibrationally uplifted by being in nature, by meditating, staying grounded (for me this often means vigorous yoga or dance) and consciously looking at the light and love that is inherently present in each person.

I confess I let myself forget that inherent light and love with a couple of people:  a snitty receptionist, a couple of Memphis drivers and a couple of other people.  A good reminder — I make my way back to A Course In Miracles work.  I will forgive myself and I will forgive them.  I will let go of the need to blame and to separate myself.  I will forgive the momentary lapse into dark seeing.

Welcome back light seeing!  Welcome back clarity and love!  Welcome back, Self!

Spreading the light of awareness!  Blessings of that light to you too!
