Heavenly Stems & Earthly Branches ~ Rooting, Expanding & Balancing into Now Harmony
Below you’ll find one of the inspired messages I sent out to all my dear friends, clients, and readers in yesterday’s newsletter, as my closing thoughts for the year.

All that keeps coming to mind is how everything RIGHT NOW IS harmony and it is only when I step out of that natural harmony ALREADY present, try to control it, attach to it, expect from it, fight it, hide from it, fear it, judge, define and fracture it from its wholeness….that I create imbalance.
I believe it is because we can’t truly remember that in activated embodiment (beyond merely a concept), that we feel lost, abandoned, broken…and in search of something, anything, to fill the void that separates us from ourselves and each other.
It is so easy to run circles around ourselves, sink deeper in quicksand, and get lost in the layers of complexity there, but perhaps we have yet to see the forest for the trees.
Our emotions provide us the ability to experience the gamut of feelings that we, as an extension of All That Is, simply choose to experience and have the freedom to experience. Yet there are no better or worse paths, as they all lead back to each other. And feelings weren’t meant to attach to and lock away in every crevice of our bodies.
They are meant to move, as we dance through our life journey while shifting with the rhythm of the beat.
We’ve heard it over and over…it’s the journey, not the destination. And the more consciously we engage the journey, the more fulfillment we experience from it all.
Yet, we lost the flow of grace that comes in that all-encompassing experience. We replaced grace with a strange, co-dependent attachment to suffering, which is inherent in our continuous feeling of being less than, when we experience anything other than what others tell us we should be feeling and doing.
And from that illusion of suffering is the reason we keep wanting to “know” THE answer that we don’t need, never satisfied until we rid ourselves of all feelings except those we deem valuable and pleasant, and until we ARRIVE to some ideal destination.
It is from that illusion of suffering that we try to control and manipulate others, that we see fear and rage blowing up all over, that we have such an increase in depression, dis-ease, extremes, and intensities amplifying as the rubber band pulls tighter and gets ready to snap, rather than softly bend and reshape itself.
Spirituality pulled tightly in concept, yet needs its roots now so that it doesn’t continue to get lost in translation and deny its parts.
The physical over-extended itself in the pursuit of acquiring, amassing, and indulging, yet needs expansion that comes from integrating wisely and consciously, so as to align with the Earth it’s been overburdening, destroying, and denying.
Harmony and balance are needed.
Harmony and balance is present within each of us to invoke and recognize.
See it in Nature all around you, immerse in and honor Nature, and you return to the Nature within You.
