Reflections: Seasons, Spring

Season-spring

Awakening as from a deep sleep
Pungent and dank as the forest floor
Emerging fresh as first flowers

Like a spring-fed stream, she restores a promise
Of new life – a titillating pulse stirring within

Life beckons, entices, arouses
Blossoming fertility
Glowing pregnancy
Anticipation

Here are some suggested ways help embody the reflection of this season:

  • Lying in your bed as you awaken each morning, know it as the spring of a new day.
  • Take a breath and smell the potential of life in the making.
  • Feel deep down in your belly – what new life is stirring within?
  • What is your heart’s desire for this new day?
  • See yourself emerging from the cocoon of the night as a fresh butterfly into the day.
  • Stretch your whole body, deliciously sensuously.
  • Listen within,
  • A promise awakens.
  • Place your hands on your belly and give yourself the pleasure of living within this intent –
  • just for this day.

Twenty Count Tuesday – Sacred Law of Cycles

butterfly-stages_1280

To know all the words, lyrics and melody of this Song, we must turn to the Northwest, to the eighth Power, for this is the Song of the Circle of Law. At first we may be confused. We must listen closely. There appears to be more than one Song coming from this place and there are many instruments that are being played by this Power of the Northwest and we see that they are really Rules and Laws. The sounds they make are those of the Sacred Image and Law Chants. Together they create the Rules and Laws or our Sacred Image or the Circle of Law Chant.

This really causes us to listen because we are beginning to hear the harmonics carried within the Southeast and blending with those of the Southwest. These are like whispers within the Sound of the Circle of Law Chant. Now we are really becoming awake and we begin to notice that we See the Sound within the Light and Hear the Light within the Sound! At first, this is confusing, but it seems to wake us up from the more common sleeping state. We begin to tune our instruments so that we can play in harmony with what we are experiencing. The longer we play, the more in tune we become! We begin to see and hear that within this Circle of Law Chant is our book of Life and all the Songs that we have ever sung, all the Music that we have ever played and all the Chants that will be our Dream of the Future Song. This is our Music that we play.

Twenty Count Tuesday – Sacred Dream

colorful_1280

As the Powers sing their Songs and play their Music, we begin to hear from the seventh Power, which is playing in the Southwest. This Power is difficult to hear, for its Song comes from within us and yet is outside of us. Here sits the Power of the Sacred Dream and it sings to us the Song of the Beauty of Symbol. It sings to us the Song of Beauty. It sings to us the Chant of the Memory Circle and if we hear this Chant, we begin to Awaken. We begin to realize the Past, the Present and the Future may appear to be different Songs, but they are really different lyrics within the same Song.
