HAVE FAITH

Faith is an aspect of consciousness. Put another way, you choose what you give power to. "If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall move; and nothing shall be impossible unto you." Matthew 17:20 Gently consider where one places faith, this placement becomes the origin story for a heart led transformation.


In these beginning years of the 21st Century we are presented with choices, we are offered opportunities to move into the deepest loving available in each moment, or something else. We offer up at this time~ an intercession to consider where your rage is coming from and where we are placing our faith. Consider the possibility you've given everything all the meaning it has, consider to live in capitalism in the United States of America, where we live on unceeded land, colonized to remove native ingenious people wisdom and sovereignty, where we inflicted trauma on folks who had been living peacefully for 1000s of years. Consider you don't know what you don't know and shut it for a moment. To listen in and find where your rage resides and what could be the best way to address it. Go deeper. And, then, go deeper still. What are the connections, how can you repair the breach.


There is a saying in the course in miracles~ anger may take the form of any reaction ranging from mild irritation to rage. The degree of the emotion you experience does not matter. You will become increasingly aware that a slight twinge of annoyance is nothing but a veil drawn over intense fury.


We have been assaulted through colonization, time, actions and systems implemented to cloud our thinking, to stop our natural expression of F-this. We do not have to take it, we can build towards atonement, reparation and a just, loving ecosystem that is built on foundational health and wellness. It is important to recognize our annoyances, our rage, our trauma and find loving expressions to transform, heal and grow in our stewardship of connection to all that is. Addressing our rage, understanding connection to source is the first prong of true loving. Safe dissolution of where our rage resides, not getting diverted, manipulated away from the truth of our rage. Perhaps, now, injustice needs to be expressed in healthy, sustained ways. This rage expressed is a function of health and wellness and is a deep practice for community building, for organizing aligned in love. We have gone away from accountability, integrity and allowed bs to flourish as oppressive transgressions wrestle control across hate filled actions throughout our worlds. Healing through unprocessed rage, supported by folks who have been egregiously harmed and used, abused, shamed is where we need to do the necessary work. Have faith through any process that feels nourishing, safe, constant to you, that is rooted in love, allow safe expression of healthy rage. Be in connection to the deepest root cause of your rage. Find faith in loving action to move through all of it, to feel the grace of gratitude, to address, express, co-create and steward a new system to thrive while the old 20th century systems become obsolete. We are a community, with all living things.

AWAKEN: OUR CONNECTION TO ALL THAT IS

Have faith in earth's magic to reconnect you to the great turning, to all that is. Choose Love. End of story. Nothing shall be impossible unto you. Nothing. Shall be. Impossible. Experiment, experience and grow in your connection to the very earth you are here to thrive in. Here's a picture from one of our community medicine making days at the BirdHouse Apothecary to giveback in our abundance and to flourishing in our collective healing. To love our neighbors, because we are our neighbors.
