exhaustion and rest

Have you been feeling incredibly tired and exhausted lately? If so, you are not alone. Almost everyone I talk to is wiped out periodically. I talked to a dear friend yesterday who worried she needed to go to the doctor. I don’t think so. I think it is kick ass energy of transformation (again) that is the culprit. We have had several eclipses and then the solstice and they seem to have come in with a bang. So many people I have spoken to were concerned and thought it was just happening to them so I wanted to share my experience in case it applies to you too. I have been absolutely depleted several days, then had a few hours of rage during the eclipse last Wednesday, then intense fear three days ago on Monday. I talked to a few people who had the same experience at exactly the same time so I’m thinking it is these bloody #$%^%$^ energies afoot. I am giving everyone affected in this way a prescription using any authority I might have with my credentials: REST!!!!! As much as possible, as often as possible I prescribe naps, hammock time and rest. See you on the other side, I have to go lay in my hammock. Love ya!!

Happy Solstice!

I just received this powerful information about pulling in light energy during the solstice today. I feel called to pass it on, for the empowerment of us all. See if it fits for you. May this day fill you with the light and power of Love and the Truth of Who you are.
 many blessings  savannah

Dear Ones,
The Divine Light for this Solstice empowerment acts as a catalyst to carry unified consciousness throughout the planet. Use the observance of this date, June 21, as an opportunity to truly experience the many possibilities opening up during this powerful year of change. The Divine Light available on this day empowers both hemispheres of the earth. It carries a transmission across time and space to awaken the cellular structure of the human body to a higher frequency of energy. The energy carried in the Light stimulates the impulse for mass awakening that was encoded in the DNA of every person born during the evolutionary times that have transpired since 1945. If you are reading this message, you have it.
Receiving the download of the Solstice energy allows a sense of oneness, as well as alignment with the Source of the highest Light there is. Awakened consciousness comes with this deep connection. If you can place yourself in the field of this energy during the activation of this 24 hour period, the resulting consciousness from the transmission of energy can empower your life with a new sense of wholeness and purpose.
These Light frequencies are a part of the massive wave of energy sweeping across the globe. There are no limitations to this energy source so your conscious, positive direction is invaluable. Gather together with others to share the Light and create a conscious connection to a wave of awakening to the One Source of Divinity, Love and Healing. Direct this Light into the world with your prayers and intentions. Receive the Light deeply into your being. Bask in the Light, allow it to recharge your deepest soul’s yearning, then use this gift to serve on the planet.
Drink in the Light, as you attune consciously with the intention to be empowered by this Solstice activation. Absorbing Light with every cell of your body, breathing in Light with every pore, directing your body to use the Light for your healing, physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. This activation can be carried into your life to create a blessing of great, unbounded good. Know that the Divine Light massing to download on to the planet on June 21 carries Love and Intelligence from the Divine Source for you to use.
This is a rare opportunity to receive an empowerment, that when dedicated to the conscious awakening of the human heart and mind, can spark the evolution of the planetary being as well. Use this solstice as a catalyst for every area of your life, and for the good of the planet. When you volunteered to be on earth during this precious moment in time, a driving force within your soul was set into motion. The call you hear from within to do something with your life, that restlessness you feel inside, can be answered very simply:
•    Show up at every opportunity to share Divine Light within one another.
•    Create your intention to live in harmony with the Divine Source of all Light.
•    Stay with a daily spiritual practice that receives and uses Divine Light.
•    Join with others in the conscious awakening prayers and direct the energy from the Light into planetary awareness.
These actions create a positive direction for high-energy frequencies that can become very uncomfortable when not used consciously as awakening elements. Here is one suggestion for a prayer you may offer on June 21:
Divine Presence, Masters and Great Beings of Divine Light, Angels and Archangels, Beloved I AM,
Thank you for this opportunity to receive Divine Light into my life and into the world. May I be a pure receiver of this energy, in a way my body is able to integrate and use at a deeper level than ever before. Please bring this Light energy into every cell and fiber of my being to be used for healing and for my evolution. I ask to be a clear and radiant channel for this Divine Light to move deeply into the Earth for the healing of this planet.
May the energy of this powerful Divine Light reach into the heart and mind of each person, and connect them to the awakening consciousness that is transpiring right now on earth. May this awakening of the Light of Peace and Love contribute to raising the consciousness of all beings and assist the evolution of the planet. May all live in Harmony with Divine Love from the Highest Source of Light that exists. Be it so. Thank you.
You will be joining with the forces of Heaven in this process. June 21, 2011 is an opportunity of Divine Awakening in which your soul is being called to participate. The Activation of Divine Light this Solstice Day can create a wave of healing never before experienced.
You are an instrument for Divine Light. This is your chance to shine. Receive Light. Send Light. Be Light.

I live in the most extraordinary community. Every day multiple wonderful events are occurring despite the fact that the area is not that largely populated. This is the most alive place I have ever lived. Some people say it is the gold. We live in what is called gold country, not too far from where gold was first discovered in California. We also live very close to the Yuba river which many people here appreciate with an attitude approaching reverence.

In the last three days I was at two wonderful events. The first was called an urn burn. An amazing man named Liam had the desire to enjoy his two loves simultaneously-fire and water. He came up with the idea of creating a structure to contain a bonfire on a structure that floats. He created a gorgeous metal urn depicting the four elements- fire, air, earth, water. The sculpting is intricate and beautiful and it floats! So we had a potluck then went with canoes and kayaks out onto a lake pulling this structure. After it was very dark, he lit it and we spoke of our deepest passions and other truths, sharing poetry and our essence. The dam spillway created the roar of a waterfall while the stars sparkled their joy. Liam kept bringing the conversation away from the trivial, back to the our most important truths. The evening was unique and delightful.

Last night I went to a summer solstice ritual at the river with my temple sisters. The river was roaring with snow melt making it hard to hear over the thunderous sound. Many of us bathed naked in the river after our hot hike. A spiral of stone and rose petals was created. Then we welcomed the four directions and above and below. We went around the circle and spoke our temple name and what was currently alive in us. It was a mixture of great sorrows and joys. We then chose rocks and threw them in the river along with all we were ready to release. Mine included heaviness, despair, bitterness, resentment, conditional love, regret, resistance and deadness. We followed up by throwing in rocks to represent our passions and what we are pulling in. Mine included joy, unconditional love, passion, luscious sensuality, aliveness, seeing my blog and my work reaching all those intending to release the obstacles to Love, connection, community, living as and with the Beloved, honesty, authenticity, acceptance and allowance. The biggest YES! was when one sister, Prema, said she was pulling in a life beyond her wildest dreams. We all jumped on that bandwagon too.

I have spent years in isolation, laying on my hammock or sitting on my chair exploring my inner reality. I am happy to report that that period of isolation seems to be coming to an end. Friends are coming over today, other friends probably tomorrow and for sure different friends for each of the four days after. So many wonderful alive people in this community. We are indeed blessed. I recognize how important community is to me and I am so grateful others share my passion and place their energies in creating the connection of community. YES!

with gratitude for my blog community,
luscious sensual love wave (my temple name)

Amma, mirroring and annihilation

 I was blessed to see Amma last Sunday and receive darshan. In case you don't know who she is, she is said to be the living embodiment of Divine Mother. She has hugged over 25 million people, passing on a powerful energetic of unconditional love. When I was there, she was hugging people for over five hours without a break. She does not get up to stretch, go to the bathroom, eat. The hug last from five seconds to maybe over a minute. I first met her several years ago and only noticed afterwards that we all got into a fight on the way home. I uncharacteristically was swearing my head off and shouting. (The swearing use to be uncharacteristic but lately it is par for the course.) Whatever is unlike Divine Love and is ready to be released is pushed to the surface for clearing. There are often thousands of people there waiting for a hug. It is quite a scene, a little slice of India in San Ramona, California. There are little shops and vendors all around selling Indian goods to raise money for her charities.
This time when it was finally our turn, I began to cry the closer I got to my hug. Tears poured down my cheeks. After the hug you are allowed to sit close to her, a true honor, for a little while. Tears continued to drip down my face. My daughter asked me why I was crying. i said that being in her Presence allows me to feel in my body how far I am still from being unconditionally loving. The apparent distant that still remains between me and my intention to embody Love creates grief within me which I allow fully.
Perhaps part of the reason I felt so moved it that for me she is the perfect mirror, not only for me but for I am guessing everyone. Whatever she sees or feels, she only reflects Love. To be in such a Presence is healing. But I actually suppose not everyone feels it. Many years ago, my husband and I came upon her by chance in a big hotel where she was giving hugs. We watched what was going on for a while with no clue, felt nothing, never even asked and split out of there. So there you go.
I was reading in a book about the spiritual antidote for my enneagram type- I am a four for those of you who know this system. My antidote is balance and allowing my self to feel the void, the emptiness. I realize that is what I have been running from my whole live, trying to fill that void with people, places, things, food, experiences, etc. It is taken all this time to have the courage to just feel it. Why is it so difficult? My theory is that it is because it feels like annihilation and in a real sense it is. To transcend the ego is also to experience a loss of self, of feeling bound to a limited time/space identity. Sounds fun in theory but in practice it is as scary as the worst horror movie for me. Yet the way is clear now. So next time that feeling of profound emptiness comes up, I will do my best to enter it fully, allow it to have its way with me, deeply embody whatever arises. I know the feeling tone of unconditional love and remembered it so well in Amma's Presence. So, whatever it takes, here i go...
