A Day On Cape Cod: Osprey Medicine


Why self care matters – at least to me.

I am in the business of energy balance, healing, spiritual guidance, mentorship, and transforming lives. How my vessel is maintained is crucial to my work. If I am exhausted, stressed, overwhelmed, or unwell, I am not at the best I can be for who I serve.

If I want my clients to listen to the guidance given to them, then I must walk the walk. To me, it is the easiest form of helping another – leading by example.

There has been a LOT of growth, transformation, breakthroughs, healing, and more this year. That kind of movement can throw anyone well disciplined off tracks from time to time as it can feel like a treadmill speeding up but you can not always keep up. So, you pause a moment.

As a result of all this growth, I made a commitment to myself earlier this year to make room for more self care, personal development, self growth, healing, unplug, and connection to the divine as it going to be needed moving forward.

I have attended 2 one day retreats already this year, a sisterhood of the staffs gathering, and a sacred community weekend event with indigenous elders. I have more planned still this year including Italy and Vancouver.

For me, this allows me to come back and be present and be of service to others in need more effectively. This is not about going out traveling and partying. It is about listening to the needs of the soul and the wisdom of the body to flourish.

A Few Days on Cape Cod:

This week I took a few days off to go to Cape Cod for some much needed self care to reboot my energy, gain some insight, heed to calls of the wisdom of my own body, and the meet the needs of my soul.

I spent a great deal of my time kayaking for at least 3 hours every morning while invoking meditation, ceremony, connection to our Great Mother Earth, and divine wisdom.

One of the message bearers came from Osprey soaring the skies effortlessly, making it’s presence known with it’s unique calling, taking chances on questionable housing, and blended with the natural landscape when needed to ground itself with the medicine of the trees.

They are truly a majestic bird of prey and hunter of the oceans. Unlike the cousin, hawk, the osprey is a true master of the air, land, and oceans with the alchemy of fire.

OSPREY MEDICINE

In my case, they can serve as a reminder to make sure my boundaries are healthy and clear enough to command the respect we desire from others.
As I observed continuously on the daily, osprey have sharp keen vision and can fearlessly dive into the oceans with sharp talons to catch it’s prey.

Finally, the osprey is also interestingly enough associated with solar forces with the alchemy of fire. What does this mean? Because, it has no fear of the sun, it is able to hunt and see unhindered by it.

It is able to work through the land (physical body), the air (the mental body, thoughts) and the ocean (the emotional body) to transform and transmute and misqualified energies within.

Its power and majesty make the Osprey an important symbol in spiritual and esoteric activities. It helps those who view it as a symbol of strength and power.

Because of this, osprey, like its cousin hawk, may be viewed as a messenger of the gods, with its swift wings and mastery over air, land and the oceans. It can fly anywhere as well as get anything it wants in a seemingly effortless way.

The Osprey is connected with Hermes or Mercury linked to communication and divine inspiration. As I witnessed these past few days, the osprey was quite vocal when it needed to be.

What Happens When We Tap Into The Divine: A Morning With Deer


Morning Thoughts

I just returned from a fruitful and amazing women’s retreat on Sunday in Hingham, MA. The day after any event like this can be a little chaotic in trying to balance my own energies out while unpacking, reviewing feedback, holding space for clientele, and being keenly aware of my own energetic needs especially after a massive coronal hole wind storm that hit the earth plane on Sunday creating a geomagnetic storm.

Those with certain health conditions like cardiac issues or those empathic like me can feel these intensely. I recently wrote about this. You can read about “How Grand Solar Minimum is Affecting Our Health, Communications, and Climate Change” here.

So, today I went for a walk to prepare myself to do a reading shortly and set the tone for the day. Nature grounds me. It helps me clear my head and it allows me to access the divine easily and effortlessly. Then THIS just happened.

Early in my healing journey, I lost trust in humans and institutions that claim to protect victims of abuse and don’t.

The blessing is that it forced me to return to my soulful spiritual state. When I couldn’t trust people or even myself for that matter (my choices/decisions), I was forced to go up … to God, Great Spirit, Universe, the Divine or whatever you call it.

I began getting synchronistic things happening beginning 2009 with what I call #signs.

Going into that divine place kept me safe, and helped restore trust in myself and my ability to heal and move forward in life.

Not to mention my heightened keen sense and ability to sniff out disingenuous, narcissistic, abusive, manipulative, predatory people.

So, here as I prepare for this reading, I stumble upon this doe in my field at my house.

Deer Message

Deer Symbolism

I usually associate deer to gentleness, family, and compassion.

The Take A Way

The take a way she gave me was that she wasn’t afraid of me. She was aware of my presence and as long as I respected her boundaries, I was able to approach easily and effortlessly.

She wasn’t startled by me, which deer can easily become. She knew I was safe, but also made sure that didn’t change what she deemed as a healthy boundary.

In Numerology:

6/11/19 at 9:18am =
reminding me of the yin yang aka +/- and the neutrality/homeostasis/balance/partnerships as a big chapter is about to close and balance/partnerships will be needed moving forward into the next chapter successfully and purposefully.

Embracing The Dragon Within

Dragons have been a huge part of my life and over the past few years, their energy and connection to me has grown stronger. I wrote this a few weeks ago and posted it on social media and felt I needed to share with you here as well.

Step into the embodiment of dragon, and step into your power.

Dragon … protect me, guide me, give me strength.

Let your scales protect and shield me as I travel into the shadows of death to face myself.

Let your claws break through the toughest of resistance for which is mostly likely buried in the depths of my own ego.

Let your #strength lift me out of the depths of darkness and into the light.

Let your wings be the hurricane to carry me, act as the winds of change needed for my highest and best and guide me on this journey.

Let your breath mix with mine and become one churning away in my pit of my belly and burn away my fears as I release its fire.

Let your #courage allow me to easily and effortlessly step forward trusting in my path.

Let your spirit energy raise my frequency and vibration.

Let your fierceness give me courage to do all that is needed for my soul’s growth

Are You Planting Seeds This Spring Equinox?

A good morning start with the medicine of mourning dove and crow as my natural morning alarm system.  What a magical way to begin my day.  Both birds have been very strong personal totems for me communicating messages to me in the areas of love, divinity, and magic for many years.

I saw this fallen tree pictured in the graphic on a hike I went on a while ago and was amazed at the resiliency and survival instincts. We can learn so much about ourselves cradled in the arms of nature.

March has sure come charging in a lion and has no slowing down in sight to exit as a lamb. You feeling this? If you live in New England, you may have certainly been feeling this.

Today marks the vernal equinox or otherwise known as the spring equinox. For some this day may seem insignificant, but for others, it marks the return to light as well as for rebirth, new beginnings, and fresh starts and has been celebrated by almost every native culture across the globe.

So TODAY, I am reminded with this message that came to me during my morning meditation.

“As I release the dead of winter, I plant heirloom seeds for the future I envision.  Today, I nurture my soul.”

So I am curious, how are you using the energies of today to nurture your soul?

Feeling the need for more guidance or direction?  You may also want to check out the Card For The Day to help guide you further today and days to come.

Happy Spring Equinox. Be sure to nurture you and the soul you ARE.

With lots of love and appreciation,
