Message from the Rose – Building a Strong Foundation

Message from the Rose

Through Autumn Austin

I was speaking to the rose bush about how well she is doing this year and how happy I am that she isn’t struggling like last year. And she said, I wasn’t struggling; I was building my foundations, my root system so that they could support all the beauty I have to share with the world.

She shared that we, you and I, must do our root chakra work now a little differently; as we are evolving our chakra system is evolving and the markers of healthy chakras are evolving. For us to hold the energies, intentions and actions that will change the world, we must make sure our foundation, our root is strong. Our root system will continue to grow as we evolve, as we step more fully into our personal power, we must have a firm foundation, rooted in spiritual principles.

Humility – Remember that the depth is not separate from the surface. Each being in creation is but an individual expression of the Divine. No one is more important, special… than another. Each is necessary, needed and uniquely gifted and guided. The wisdom of your Namaste is often lost; the truth is, I am another you.  The rose asks us to stand in a place of allowing the Divine to flow through us anew in each moment. Surrendering who we thought we were and opening to who we are in each moment. Just as the rose bush surrenders her wilted petals to allow for the next expression of beauty….. Read more at http://thecouncilsoflight.blogspot.com

Pink Full Moon Blessing from Pacha Mama, Mama Killa, Blue Star & Me

As we open to the transformational energies that are being ushered in, the beautiful pink full moon reminds us to release what no longer serves. Reminding us that letting go is followed by a filling up.

Last night Mama Killa, our beautiful moon, was full; drawing us near, filling us with awe and wonder.  A symphony of crickets, frogs, hoots, pups and the crackle of the fire provided a healing, cleansing, upgrading melody from Pacha Mama, Mother Earth. A Light Language song from a Blue Star came through to add to the magic.

So, if you feel called, settle in, allow the sounds to carry you inward and be open to revelation, insight and the Love that is always closer than close.

With Munay and Gratitude,

Autumn

Sunrise, Being the Light

It is with a heavy heart that I write this. So much pain, fear, hate in the world today. So much seperation. Yet beyond that sadness, I can feel Hope. Hope that Love can, will, has to overcome. That We, humans, have the ability to reach a place of Higher Consciousness. That we can live in a place where all life is sacred, where all of creation is intrinsically connected and divinely unseperable.

MLK’s quote keeps coming to mind lately….”I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.” Martin Luther King Jr.

Remember, darkness can not chase out darkness. WE, you and I, have to be the light. We need to be the change we want to see. We are the one’s we have been waiting for. We can wish others would change. But the only place we can really affect change, serious change is with in. Einstein said that “no problem can be solved from the same consciousness that created it”. When we react from fear, sadness, hate we are just perpetuating the problem.

We have to live from a place of Love. A place of wisdom and understanding that we are all connected. We are all brothers and sisters. We all carry the consciousness of Divinity within us. It is our mission here on earth today to let that Higher Consciousness guide our steps.

Let us bring peace to all the situations we encounter. Let us bring our wholehearted intention to evolve. Let us relate to each other by deeply listening, letting go of what we think we already know and be open to what we may learn, see, sense together. Let us get to know the shadow parts of our selves so that we can bring our whole selves to the mission of bringing heaven to earth.  And let us each take full responsibility for ourselves. Let us hold each other and ourselves accountable for our actions, our choices, our life. Most of all we have to work to stay out of the stories, out of the past and be present with everything that is right here, right now.

My prayer today is that each of us will be the sun rising at daybreak in a world that seems lost in the starless night.

Much Munay!

Ease and Grace?

Ease and Grace?

Sitting outside, connecting with Pacha Mama, on this 60 degree February morning, marveling at the first glimpses of spring starting to peek out. When a crow caught my attention, cawing, as if to say transformation is at hand. My first thought was Great Spirit let it be with ease and grace please!  And I immediately heard… Why don’t you just choose the easier way, just let go and trust.

Wow! Right? What if I just take the next step that is in front of me? Rather than trying to find another way. Or worrying about “what ifs”. Or concerning myself with how that person might feel or what might happen there. What if I /we just trusted; trusted our self, trusted Spirit.

What if the ease and grace comes from our decisions, our choices. Choosing to stay connected, choosing to follow the nudging and synchronicities. Choosing to let go of things that are not good for us, the people, situations, past hurts, resentments…. Maybe the struggle, the suffering, the confusion comes from trying to figure it all out. From the need to “know”.

Today the crow came to say trust; trust that part of you that is divine, that part that is connected to All That Is. With a beginners mind, take the next step presented and trust. Instead of asking for Ease and Grace, let’s give our selves the freedom to live in ease and grace. Isn’t that who we really are?

Much Munay!

Emerging Grid Portal

Emerging Grid Portal by Liz Simmerman
Emerging Grid Portal by Liz Simmerman of Reiki Divine Energetics

Here’s Liz Simmerman’s latest painting. (See more about Liz at Reiki Divine Energetics) To me this painting speaks of the new, higher connection to the grid of Universal Love and Unity. We are being asked to clear away more and more of what no longer serves, so that we can connect at a higher level.

Why? Because creation is calling us to be of service, to anchor in and share the Love the is ever abundant, but often overlooked. And as times feel harder and so many still suffer, Light Workers are being asked to step up and shine….

Shine the Love of the Universe, of Creation. Shine so bright that it radiates around the world, all the while believing that Heaven on Earth can happen! One life, one light at a time.

Liz and I would be honored if you could take a few minutes to listen and meditate on the painting and open yourself to this new higher amazing connection… and let your light shine.

Let us be the Change! And so it is! Ho!

Much Munay (Love)!

Remembering Wisdom from the Hawk

A beautiful October day, the leaves are changing colors, it’s the perfect temperature, warm breeze in the air. There is silence everywhere, even amidst all the noise. The water from the sprinkler bringing beautiful birds, chirping joyfully, as they take a quick bath.

I looked up to admire the amazing art work of the creator and in a near by tree was the most beautiful hawk. She was amazing, she looked me in the eye and then flew off. Her wings were stripped at the edges and must have stretched out 4 feet. She didn’t even need to flap, she just seemed to glide though the trees and disappeared.

I caught myself thinking, where’s your nest? I felt her say why do you need to know where my nest is? To which I quiet smirkily replied, so I can connect with you better. She in all her wisdom said “that’s what you’re mind needs, all your soul needs us to connect with me right now to take a deep breath and feel my presence. Feel that there is no separation, only the separation your mind creates. Your mind wants to understand and see and look and have a place to go. Your spirit doesn’t need that.”

So I took a deep breath and connected with that amazing creature. I felt her power, her confidence, her certainty. And perhaps more importantly, I felt the unity. She knows and remembers, always, that she is an intricate part of creation. That she isn’t separate. That the same amazingly powerful creative force that created her, is also in her, actually is her. Just like it is who we really are at our core, beyond all the stories of the mind.

That amazing creature had come to remind me, remind us, that we can stop and take a deep breath, let go of all the thoughts and be right here, right now, in this moment. Leaning into, sensing, looking for that unity, that non-duality. There is no separation. Feel it. Allow yourself to be That.

Right now as I’m writing this and remembering the experience, reliving it, feeling connecting again to that magnificent hawk. Then the thoughts come back. “You can’t write this on your blog. Are you crazy?” And for a moment I lost that unity, that connection. Then I remembered. Oh crazy ego, you really don’t get it do you? Being vulnerable is what makes us human, allows us to have deeper connections. Vulnerability is the cost of Freedom. And isn’t it worth it!!

All we have to do is remembered with our heart. Take a deep breath, again, and connect, feel who we really are.

Much Munay! (Much Love!)

How to Use Your Wand or Rattle

I am often asked “how do I use my wand?”. Here are a few ideas.

Mediate with your wand/rattle; allow the energies of the wand/rattle to join with you.

Infuse a particular intention or goal into the wand/rattle and allow it to aid you in your journey.

Wear your mini-wand to aid your journey throughout the day and bring needed enlightened energies into your relationships, projects or endeavors.

Use your wand or rattle to remove negative energies from the etheric field; just set your intention and run the wand/rattle around your body .

Guide your wand or rattle to send healing energies into the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual fields.
Place your wand or rattle on your alter to anchor your spiritual aspirations.

Allow your wand or rattle to become part of your spiritual experience, helping to anchor & amplify spiritual growth, trust and love.

Take your rattle to a fire or drum circle and allow the rattle’s sound and energy to assist in building sacred space.

Allow your wand/rattle to assist you in grounding and connecting with Pacha Mama (Mother Earth).

These are but of few of the ways you can use your wand or rattle. Remember there is no wrong way, let your intuition and imagination guide you and your wand/rattle on your journey ‘there’.

Much Love!

Perfection; Wisdom from a Confederate Rose

It’s a grey cloudy windy day; threats of the thunder storms and tornadoes, somehow the world seems a little busier, and a little more chaotic. And yet when I came home and I came out to see the most magnificent beautiful pink Confederate Rose. I stopped for a moment, taking a deep breath and just noticing how beautiful it is and all its perfection.

Standing there, in the midst of all this yucky day is perfection; reminding me that there is always, always perfection to be found. Even when things feel hard, when everything is just not quite right, when things are chaotic and changing, when people don’t act right, when we don’t think right, shoot when we don’t act right in the midst of all of that is perfection, everywhere, in each moment. We just take a deep enough breath to be present, to notice the perfection. It’s everywhere. It’s in the beautiful pink Confederate Rose standing up and outstretched in my front yard. It’s in our four-legged friends eyes when we come home from work. It’s in the smile of a little child, full of innocence and joy. It’s in the smell in the wind; the smell that says rain is coming. It’s in the feelings that are evoked by all these beautiful things. It’s in the laughter, it’s in the connections. It’s in the Love. Everywhere we look, no matter what.

Take a deep breath and become fully present. We can see, feel and we can experience the perfection. In fact, we can sense and if we are willing, fully step into that perfection.

I am perfection. You are. We all are, perfection. At the core of who we are, beyond all the stories in our heads, we are that perfection; perfection having a human experience.

And in that humanness, when we forget about the perfection, all we need do is breathe deeply, bring out attention to this moment and look, listen, feel and be the perfection. It’s that simple and yet difficult to master. And isn’t that even perfect?

Now back to my garden. Much Love!

Cardinal Wisdom

On this clear, cool, beautiful fall morning, listening to and watching the birds forage for a morning snack. A pair of cardinals honor me with their presence.

Cardinals often bring a big message, one that most of us need to hear, myself included. A message of balance. Balance in our masculine and feminine parts, no matter what sex we are. Balance in work and play. Balance in responsibilities.

Being balanced is one of cardinals greater strengths. Both make and female share the role of incubating the eggs, which is unusual in the bird kingdom. They are always near their mate. And the female sings just as beautifully as her male counterpart. Again unusual.

The cardinals song also reminds us to listen closely. To listen for the messages from spirit in the ordinary moments; for that is where the magic is.

The cardinal stays year round, in it’s home. Reminding us to be flexible, steady and grounded during times of change. As the seasons change, so do we. Cardinal reminds us to sway with the winds of change, like a deeply rooted tree; stay balanced, and listen to the song of spirit.

What an amazing creation we are a part of! So grateful for Pacha Mama for all the splendor she gives us! And to the creator for being so creative! Now off to listen a little more deeply.

Much Munay!
Autumn & Pablo

PS: Malachite is an excellent stone to help with maintaining balance. See Malachite Healing wands at Journey There Wands.

Random Musing After Meditation with Gia Cards and Pablo

I am love
Love is what I am
Love is who I am
Love is how I am

At my deepest core, at yours too, is higher consciousness, all that is. The ocean that is  full of individual drops, but together can not be separated. Love, the purpose for our time here. Love, the driving force of the big bang 13.7 billion years ago. Love the force that can, will bring heaven to earth. Love the force that will always be, can not not exist. That is who we are….

Just take a deep breath and contemplate that….melt down into your heart space, feel that love. Love that longs for change and growth. Love that wants to experience ALL of humanities experiences. Love that does not judge, condemn or dismiss. Yet, Love that doesn’t accept less than our best…..

Because Love knows what is best for us, what is best for the world, is for us to live from this deep place of pure love. To strive to create the life we dream of. To not allow ourselves to become stuck playing small, because we are spirit, it is not about us, it’s about all of creation (including us).

Where do we start? By trusting our hearts. Following it’s guidance, listening for its wisdom in all we do. For that whole hearted sensing into what is right, what love is calling for, is what will and is changing the world.

Remember… We are Love! Love is who we are. Love is how we are. Love is what we are. We are Love. Will I choose to be Love today? Will you?
