Do you want to fall in love? It’s easy. Simply go outside, breathe the freshness of the air, look around, find a bug or leaf, a finch or magpie. ~ Grandfather Fire Do you want to fall in love? It’s easy. Simply go outside, breathe the freshness of the air, look arou...

This day is Winter Solstice. It’s the longest period we have in the year’s cycle to be with the feminine. She is seen as the dark Yin, the dark Mother, the deep shadow of ourselves, the quiet and introspective dreamer. The feminine is creation: out of chaos comes creat...

With Thanksgiving approaching Part 2 speaks about how I and we, as a people, need to forgive and bring home the importance of healing the wounds of the past. As we witness today, with ancestral wounds continuing to fester, peace is impossible. Thanksgiving is a time to...

Today is International Day

of Peace.

Mind and Heart...

We tend to get lost, drifting in our mind and thinking, forgetting how to listen to our heart. The heart holds our knowing and wisdom and knows the path that resonates with us. It knows the next step we should take. It’s always present but it’s hard for us to hear when we’re busy in the mind. Sacred Fire helps us to discover this energy of heart again. The heart has an enormous capacity to make life sing again while the mind ministers the heart’s knowing. 

 

There are still many people on earth that live in communication with the world around them; they experience being part of it. When we are lost, we have lost our sense of connectedness and life is replaced by individuality and separation. Fire is the connective force that brings our spirit and soul back to life and even to the timeless place within.
