Mineral World: Rocks and Stones

Min stonehenge

Rocks and stones are double holders in the West.  They are the muscles and bones of Grandmother Earth.  A rock is alive; it talks to you.  The Stone People hold the energy in a Medicine Wheel and give their alchemy to you in ceremony.  In the purification lodge, the heated stones hold the heat of the fire and then release it inside the lodge.  When water is poured over them, they sing their give-away song.  This transforms the space and makes it possible for us to purify and heal ourselves

In the West, we hold with the physical body with intimacy. Now, this does not mean to hold as in hold on tight.  It is holding in the sense of transforming energy through stabilization and for utilization.  Think of it as an electrical cord. The body is the structure through which electrical energy moves like a conduit, and provides the transformed energy to turn a fan, or work a toaster, or move the body parts.

Great Work of the Soul

“For a man to conquer himself is the first and noblest of all victories.”

~ Plato ~

This is the great work of the soul.

Identifying patterns that no longer work is the first step.  Having the courage to change, to step into the unknown, to battle the inner pretense and pretender voices is the act of a Warrior!  Embracing change as a way of being is walking with Benevolent death, the little death that helps us to change, transform, and birth ourselves anew.  Embodying changes the soul is calling us to make moves us to be our Natural Self.

Everything changes except the fact that everything changes.  What are you going to do today, thus moment, to become more of who you truly are?
