I think all of us are feeling fortunate to be walking around and participating in the world right now. We don’t always know where we’re going. But if we close our eyes and center our minds and hearts. We know we can make good solutions to the dilemmas that may face us upcoming. Change is inevitable at any given time and our ancestors were brave and risked their lives to create good choices. It’s in our DNA to have courage and untapped skill to forge forward.
We live in an amazing atmosphere, the ground we walk on and the food we eat is mother nature at it’s best. If you haven’t taken a few moments every day to meditate and thank every facet of what earth gives to you. You are held in the palm of creation and cradled day in and day out. If only we recognize our good fortune.
This month as we celebrate the new moon, we’re to really put on our thinking caps and come up with at least 3 ideas in each area of your life.
Even if your skill set doesn’t make it easy, it is at least a new dream born in the dark and you can start to cultivate it. Just as a seed is started from the soil, welcoming you to start a seedling or metaphorically a creative endeavor.
Lets plant some motivation in your mind:
Looking up instead of looking down. You can do this standing, sitting or laying down. Figure out the different clouds, and then think of the possibilities of others places and at night enjoy the stars and be thankful about our solar system.
Being in Resonance with the Earth
Listen to the Planets hum or sound (scientific fact) and match your vibe with the great mother
Taking a Walk
When you’re walking around do so with complete wonder, notice how vibrant the colors are all around you. Tune into what you are seeing and feeling.
A Moment of Gratitude
who you love and who loves you
Who do you admire and who admires you
How you admire Earth and how earth admires you
If I could choose the perfect future what would it look like
Come back into your natural state of being, it can be something very simple. If you need to rest then do so. Meditate for 10-20 minutes if you can, it can renew your day.
What you seek is seeking you
Are you wanting to find love, success, great health and wisdom. It is at your fingertips. Clarity a lot of times leads you to what you want and why you want it.
We should always be giving something back to the earth. She is very much alive, she speaks the language of weather and the elements. You can pray with your feet on the ground, placing a flower at a tree base, or walking around in resonance. The sooner we treat her with respect and love, she returns it a 100 fold.
Happy Earth Day Everyone, & Beautiful Prayers at the New Moon ❤
The gathering will be led by 4 guidance advisors, all 4 are healers and practitioners representing the 4 corners – North, East, South & West. Much like the comfort of the teepee, we hope to create the same in-depth setting. We are creating the circle of brotherhood. The objective is in bringing together a group to create a commonality and deeper understanding of these greater forces and revealing opportunities. Helping each to rise to the potential of higher spiritual consciousness and greater self-satisfaction. Individually and within a group council, we use forethought and intentions to begin clearing idiosyncrasies and difficulties along with sharing, meditating, praying, goal focusing, bonding, brain-mind programming and refreshing our inner sanctuary. Benefits would begin with looking to find “your why”, processing and surpassing limitations, creating positive challenges and releasing hardships and getting out of your stories, it’s time to aspire toward dreams again. Rebuilding the Real You. Registration: email@example.com 1-424-781-7103 (leave a message)

The Full Cold Moon (Native American) at 19* Gemini will culminate, December 11, 2019 9:12pm PDT/December 12, 2019 12:12am EDT (Farmers Almanac).
This Full Moon indicates to find vibrancy again in your life. Open your eyes and take in all the good. As a human we have to readjust and allow ourselves to be shining brightly. No need to be in deep judgment. Formalize a youthful spirit by being spontaneous, breathing some fresh air, putting your smile on, adding style in your step and increase a heaping dose of friendliness. Taking life thoughtfully includes balancing our outlook and inner satiation. Looking at the redeeming qualities of everything instead of holding disdain. We all know we can get stuck going round and round about a problem or becoming broken hearted when someone has unsettled us.
Being vulnerable is understandable but we have to learn to let go of these experiences as fast as possible. We have things to do and a life to live, and the bottom line is paying attention and gaining a perspective to our future. We do this by working in an acceptable way, noticing our family and friends and treating them with care, sentimentality and fascination, and being accountable to our actions. We want to hold on to a certain way of life, and sometimes that doesn’t seem possible. Change is inevitable. Even with a lot of communication sometimes, there can be feelings not met and people tend not to articulate well or leave unexpectedly. Everyone identifies with rejection, personal mistakes, awkward and bad choices, while these situations are our toughest moments, we can recover and proceed. We are never to fall into despair. If we need support, there are people in positions to help. No one ever said life was easy, but it’s worth it. We can re-learn to enjoy ourselves with other humans. Really click in to appreciate yourself first and foremost. Stop setting yourself aside.
We don’t have to over-socialize or party every hour of our free time or during the holidays. We aren’t supposed to turn ourselves on to one group and not another; we are to be radiating with life-force, instilling some pizzazz, being consistent in our feelings, and being a little more curious about the people surrounding us in any situation. Everyone needs a pick me up, and we need to be present and interested. Most likely we can put away our phones and really listen to others, make eye contact and ask questions. We all know some people need to talk a lot and your objective may be to tune in, but give yourself some center stage time as well.
There are many different ways to start a conversation, one way is to discover common interests. When engaging, make effort to hear their stories or observations. It’s never a waste of time to make someone else’s day enjoyable. If someone wants to help fix your problems, always be open to good advice and solutions and don’t be afraid to reciprocate and offer your good recommendations.
Here’s some tips on how to be more inviting and relevant:
1. You are confident yet friendly
2. Matching a similar social tone
3. You observe yourself, but you’re not self conscious only respectful
4. Be polite
5. In an unflattering situation allow it to lead to laughter or understanding
6. Don’t put down others or fight
7. Share tips and remedies of any skill
8. Look others in the eye to acknowledge them
9. Don’t talk at people, converse with them
10. give & take speaking
11. Passing the *waiter test
12. It’s not a contest to see who is smarter
13. Say meaningful words
14. Drop the defensive shield
15. Be Polite
17. Not judging
18. Be helpful
19. Trust where you’re supposed to be
20. Enjoy the people you are surrounding yourself
*waiter test – ones true character is revealed when being served by others
Everyone knows what’s wrong to do…bad habits, addictions, procrastination or rebelliousness. Bad tempers or isolation, release misfortune and start by being resourceful, capable and enterprising. Learning to listen again. Drinking plenty of water, and meditate. Resonating with the earth and expecting the very best instead of the very worst.

———-Shine in the world. Don’t feel alone or lonely, there are millions of people who feel separate or desolate. We all deserve great things in life. Don’t feel overwhelmed by too many people or problems, know there is a solution about everything. We don’t always know how to solve those problems, but help is around the corner, inner-strength can be renewed, hardships are overcome everyday.
The first step is your mind is in synch with your conversations that match your actions. When you succeed to align this, you will notice your life works in miraculous ways. You must trust the process, no matter if your life is moving as slow as a turtle or as fast as a hare. It’s our present moment that counts and how you conduct yourself each and every moment. It’s important, Make an effort to encourage and inspire others. Encouragement is useful. Reassuring another person of the effort they make, not only makes them feel validated but it also makes you feel satisfied.
—— “I have yet to find the man, however exalted his station, who did not do better work and put forth greater effort under a spirit of approval than under a spirit of criticism.”
By: Paula Bianchi – I figured since I’m always talking about meditation, I should write an article about it. At first, I was going to be all technical and give you a blow by blow history of what meditation is, and how long people have been practicing it. Let me just say, it’s been around […]
“In the world’s audience hall, the simple blade of grass sits on the same carpet with the sunbeams, and the stars of midnight” – Rabindranath Tagore (Indian Poet, Playwright and Essayist, Won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913, 1861-1941)
Summer Solstice marks the end of the waxing year. And the rays of the sun directly strike one of the two tropical latitude lines. June 21 marks the beginning of summer in the northern hemisphere, as winter begins in the southern hemisphere. On this day, the earth’s “circle of luminescence” will be from the Arctic Circle to the Antarctic Circle. The equator receives twelve hours of daylight, as there will be 24 hours of daylight at the North Pole and 24 hours of darkness at the South Pole.
gAll over the world people honor this day as an important reminder of the apex of light and to cast away evil and their problems. Northern Hemisphere inhabitants use June 21 as the day of celebration, but the splendor of light lasts from new moon to full moon.
Worshipping the Sun’s great power, all cultures celebrate in some way. Celts and Slavs dance around bonfires while Chinese marked the day honoring Li, the Goddess of Light. The celebrants of modern and ancient ceremonies tune in that life comes from the sun. It is life giving and life supporting. We’ve recently had the good fortune to have electricity, greenhouses, and shipment suppliers. How will you celebrate? We all may not get a chance to dance around the bonfire but it’s a time to bask in the light, sit in the sun, cast our worries away and awaken to our lives.
