Fierce One

FIERCE ONE⠀
Akashic Reading for the Aries Full Moon Oct. 5, 2017


Like the element of fire, anger has a motivating quality that can promise a bounty of transformation. Our duty to its promise is that we live by truth.⠀


When unconscious drives are at play there is an extra layer to transmuting our emotions into states of resolve. At times we would like to believe that we are ok, doing our thing our way, but true healing happens collectively. That means right now we are all being asked to process (Fear, Power, Rage) on a scale that requires tremendous care, patience and responsibility.

But how can one human heart carry such a wound? How can we stand present, purposeful and resilient in the face of terrible grief?

Being able to come back to a state of presence is of monumental value when we are triggered. When we see ourselves as agents of creation we become capable of directing our attention to facilitate change. We can offer kindness. We defend what is life affirming. We become the fierce one. When we feel overwhelmed we can still make a choice to hold onto what is ultimately true. Those we love, who inspire us, who walk with wisdom, grace and integrity. With time and experience, we become those people.

Life presents us with realities that break our spirit. Despair, grief, rage, the unsavory often provide a wake up call. In the yogic tradition anger (Rudra) is a gateway to liberation (Moksha) and peace (Shanti). Fire destroys and transforms. It burns up the illusion of ego. At times this process brings us to our knees so that we can see what is truly there for us. To practice this means to stay with and embody the teachings. Heart, Mind, Soul.

Compassion is an embodied practice revealing a staunch perspective into the nature of our human heart. It offers us space. It allows us to see beyond illusion. It grants us the wisdom when we listen.

Born out of itself

was a desire to know

the Mystery

Understanding the translations,

the unseen ways of the world

secrets in plain sight,

seeking

 

Wisdom is not book learned

 

When we recognize the deeper truths we move into the nature of our own Becoming

We begin to recognize the Whole-Self in all its sanctified glory

 

Reverence unfolds

 Spirit embodies

 

We give and take as much as we can to comprehend as much as we can

to help each other,

to see there is a way forward and towards

self-actualization, freedom and love

 

I am often found asking this question "What signal does my heart carry?"

 

Love is a bold symbol for change

the work is remembering

that initial imprint

a blueprint for evolution

 

Each breath a carving of awareness

a request for peace,

a prayer

for understanding on all levels

compassion is understanding

Look within my dear.

Look deeply.

The answers are always there.

Inside.

The time that it takes to travel outside of oneself is much more laborious and long than the journey inward to the shores of your wisdom.

Take the time

Make the time

To listen

and you will learn that everything you seek

calls to you from within

It is all already there inside of you

You have enough compassion to water the drought of the world with your tears

Your smile shines across the globe like a new born sun

The stars reflect back to you your own known mystery in a language decoded through Silence

The translation is clear

You are the one

You are the one

You are the one

You’ve been searching for.

Now is the time, not to hesitate

It is absolutely the time to proceed ahead with a full and lustrous heart

I find and I believe that we always have a chance to draw upon true courage for change; change in the way we perceive the world and ourselves, to see the multiple possibilities for connection and understanding between inner and outer realms.

This is true healing.

_

I hear these words and my body shifts and my mind becomes a more complete vehicle for growth, for adaptability

_

my breath draws deeper

my heart moves

I meet yours

we move together

there is joy

 

tears are running down,

or is it just the rain?

love is here

ever more

there is love within her

, again

 

the recognition

gratitude is here

and with my faith standing upon it

gentle-footed

coaxing

 

be with me again

hold my hand

lets walk

together

 

alongside one another

in Silence

and with grace

determination

and perseverance 

 

to serve

to let go

to instill

to bring

to build

to love

 

How do you place yourself (t)here?

at the seat of change

at the threshold of the movement within you.

 "We do not meditate only to relax a little and experience some peace. We meditate to unfold our inner being. ... Meditation on the self is not difficult. The real secret of meditation is shaktipat, the inner awakening that takes place through contact with a Siddha Guru. Within every human being lies a great and divine energy. The Indian scriptures refer to it by different names, such as shakti (supreme energy) or chiti (universal consciousness), and when it resides within a human body, this conscious energy is known as kundalini. This inner power is the same creative force that is responsible for the creation, sustenance, and withdrawal of the world. ... it is Consciousness which forms the ground, or canvas on which the material universe is drawn."

Swami Muktananda, Meditate p. 10-11
