They say a picture is worth a thousand words... Yes, this is true. Pictures can tell a story. But there are some stories a picture cannot tell. Only words, spoken from the heart, can hint at expressing the richness of some things...
Like the tingling presence of condor spirits circling above an ancient Incan city.
Or the dense, impenetrable, enveloping darkness of the Amazon jungle, teeming with the symphonic cacophony of creatures unknown.
The downpour of crisp mountain rain into an ancient Andean lake, and the earth shattering crack of thunder in its company, which vibrates every cell to the bone.
The soothing silence of an underwater paradise, teeming with rainbow fish and dancing coral.
The cooling mist of a fifty foot waterfall, carrying freshly melted Andean snow.
The chaos and calamity of a colorful bus ride, zipping through curvy mountain passes and by steep cliffs.
The expression on a child's face in a small impoverished island village, as a strange and colorful foreigner walks by.
The movement and vividness of feathers and bangles on a queen samba dancer, strutting her stuff in a carnival parade.
The potent wisdom and magic behind the eyes of a loving Shipibo mamita, as she sings her magic songs into every cell of your being.
The synchronicity of stumbling across an undiscovered ruin and pondering its story.
And the magic of a rainbow spreading its majesty full across the sky as a farewell kiss from the spirits of the heavens and the earth.
A picture cannot translate the subtle mixture of pride and desperation in a mothers eyes as she sells her handmade masterpiece to you for pennies to feed her family.
Nor can it capture the teeming vibration of ancient plant communication in la Selva.
It cannot tell you the eerie wailing sound of howler monkeys, nor the soothing clack of a horses hooves.
It cannot sing to you the ancient songs of the land and its people, nor the complex intertwining rhythm of the medicine drum and flute.
My camera did not capture my dark nights of solitude and doubt and introspection.
The complete collapse and surrender to the earth as I crawled, weak and delirious, through mud and vines.
Countless moments of utter peace and silence, magic and pure presence.
I could not photograph my visions of archangels and demons, of extra terrestrials and multi colored mandalas, of ancient magic and beyond-earthly realms.
The feelings of complete contentedness, fulls ascension, deep healing, and undeniable LOVE.
No, a picture cannot tell the story of the breakdown, the battle, the revelation, and the breakthrough...
Even words cannot fully describe these things, so profound that they alter perspectives and lives.
And so, with no more pictures to show, I will be more honest, and offer my words, in the hope of reaching a tiny bit closer to the truth of these journeys...
A picture is worth a thousand words, a thousand words can tell a story, but the story is a mere shadow in the light of the personal journey, the direct experience.
Therein lies the real, everlasting treasure...
"In that moment...after all the resistance and trying, hopes and fears, excitement and disappointment...when all that's left to do is SURRENDER... In that moment, there is PEACE"
"When a sickness or disease is in the healing process, often it must get worse before it gets better. The fever must rise to burn the illness before it breaks. Sometimes you have to turn up the heat to sweat out the toxins. Let the fires rage, let the heat rise... Let the healing begin.
PURIFICATION is NEVER an EASY PROCESS"
“I will seek him whom my soul loves.
For love is strong as death,
Passion fierce as the grave.
It burns like a blazing fire,
Like a mighty flame.
Many waters cannot quench Love.
Nor rivers sweep it away.”
I am in a state of deep surrender and Gratitude. This full moon period has brought forth a deep initiation by fire into every level of my being.
A few days ago I found out my dome home caught fire. Fortunately my amazing community spotted it just in time and helped put it out before it burnt to the ground. But It is destroyed to the point where the structure will need to be replaced. The meaning behind this event is monumental, and i am listening to the communication from the universe. Deep teachings of surrender, non attachment, and listening are given to me now.
As my Saturn returns awaits just around the corner, I can feel his strong teachings moving me forward, past my comfort zone, forging me in the fires of purification. My whole being is being illuminated by this flame, actively clearing with force all that must now fall away to propel me forward on this deep path of service and healing. I am in such extreme gratitude for the element of fire, and in turn all the elements, for their profound power of destruction, transformation, transmutation, and healing protection. These are the gifts I have been given...and so begins a new chapter for my path.
We all have our own specific and important role to play in this collective awakening. This may involve some of the deepest pain, loss, displacement, discomfort, confusion, grief etc that you have ever personally experienced. Know that this is because it is only partially personal, and more actually collective. What you do for your own healing process, you do for all of us. We each take a bit of the burden, and transform it together, piece by PEACE.
THANK YOU for declining anesthesia, for feeling the pain, and for choosing to be AWAKE for the soul surgery of humanity and beyond.
"If Fear is the Cry of Doubt... LOVE is the song of trust...TRUST"
I am not obligated to wear anybody's negativity for them, not even my ancestors. I stand true in my purity of heart. I am divine feminine compassion. I am impenetrable, unshakable LOVE
Incantation for releasing negative energies:
"Being in darkness you are loved
Loved fiercely and with compassion
There is nothing to fear or judge or resist
Just acceptance, allowance and being seen
From the light in my heart in now see you
I do not judge, my response is compassion
I understand and I release you now
Be and flow, but from my energy field, you must now go
Without will or force, but through love and peace
All negativity from my field is now released"
"If we can humble ourselves enough to listen and trust the reflections of the ones who love us the deepest, eventually we will reach the understanding that they are always right. Our greatest teachers are those whom we allow to see into the mirror we are, crystallizing the sight of our light and shadow, so we may return to wholeness."
In Lak'ech Ala K'in … I am You, You are Me. THANK YOU for teaching me...
Emerging from my dieta with rose. After water fasting for 7 days, in-taking only rose tea, extract, and water, I feel light and clear... Filled with peace, love, and trust. Creativity running through me. I Feel dreamy, calm, grounded and relaxed...free of stress-finally!.
Inspired to make changes and move forward on my path. I feel more beautiful and oozing with femininity than ever! I feel deep appreciation to have given myself the time for detox, reflection, integration rest, and rejuvenation. I wasn't fully sure in the beginning why I chose Rose to diet, only I knew it spoke to me and called me. During the process I discovered the diverse and amazing medicine this plant offers.
The main gift for me, energetically, was the vibration of deep compassionate Love and beauty, while holding strength and sharp protection in my foundation. Like the beauty of the rose with its firm, thorny stem. Accessing and awakening more fully into the Divine Feminine Mother Queen...
Gracias a las plantas y las flores...A dios y las diosas
