9th April 2018
It was Saturday 24th March. Wishing to honour the equinox, which passed on 20th, I made my way to my sit spot. I began to meditate. Imagining myself as one with the cosmos, I felt a spiraling energy moving through me – a sensation that manifested itself by a throaty ohm and my outstretched arms pointed up to the heavens. After some moments the trees erupted into life. The birds began to howl.
Uncertain of what was happening I broke my meditation and retrieved a stick of incense from my bag. I took a few moments to tune into myself and connect with the intentions that live in my heart. Speaking from them I spoke of my future wishes for the coming season and lit the scented stick. Once more I was greeted by a cacophony of noise coming from the tree tops. Madness.
Finally I took a micro-dose from my bag. Offering my heart to the medicine I chewed and swallowed. Looking up, two geese swam towards me, settling two metres from me. They watched me and fed themselves on some plants beneath the water.
I left Battersea Park that evening moved. I sensed my prayers had been heard and the auspicious signs had been given.
Two weeks later, I’m out of a job, back from a trip to France, preparing for my forthcoming adventure to Romania, where I’ll be doing a course based on Bill Plotkin’s book ‘Wild Mind’.
I find myself in a moment of grace, a window of opportunity, to continue manifesting and creating the better world that lives in my heart. Yes, I feel societal pressures and am aware of my growing sense of need for security as I mature through my years. But I live with a risk that the work needs to be done. And I will do what it takes to do it.
I wish you a delightful season of treasure, new life and vitality. May you traverse your days with grace and share the gratitude you feel for life and others freely.
All my love,
