We are all feeling so much emotion for the landscapes and all of life being destroyed through climatic events.
We know there is destruction and death happening in numerous places around the world. But more recently the fires in Australia are tearing our hearts open.
I read about all kinds of statistics of loss of life and don’t know what numbers are accurate. I have seen reports of 500,000 nature beings that died in the fires. And 8,000 koala bears have died as of writing this month’s column.
It is tragic beyond what our minds and hearts can imagine.
I too am praying beside all of you for the fire to be contained.
I recently spoke about this during my Introduction call “The Three Hidden Worlds” hosted by Stephen Dinan and The Shift Network.
Shamanism is a nature based practice and in shamanic cultures all life including Earth, Air, Water, and Fire are our family. But when we don’t honor, respect, or act with kindness towards other life beings there are consequences.
Earth, Air, Water, Fire gives us life. We continue to throw all our toxic waste into the elements that give us life. They are living beings and are our family.
In our culture we still are still ignoring the sacred practice of reciprocity. All of you reading this column know intuitively and in your heart that if we honored the elements that give us life they would not be acting so violently.
But yet we bypass building a strong loving relationship with them and simply try to get enough people together to try and manipulate the elements to move fires, move flood waters, move storms, create rain, and so on. This might have a temporary miraculous effect, but in some ways is more part of the problem as people feel they don’t have to change how they live their lives if they feel they can manipulate Nature instead of respect it.
I wonder how things would change if we established a relationship with the elements of mutual respect… You have to know in your heart that this would make a huge difference. You must KNOW this.
But here we are. Our hearts are broken with so much loss.
Start honoring the elements. Let’s gather our spiritual energies to open lines of communication with the elements instead of just gathering forces to manipulate them. Nature will not be manipulated.
Let’s perform honorable closure ceremonies for all the beings that have lost their lives. I wrote about Honorable Closure ceremonies in The Book of Ceremony: Invoking the Sacred into Everyday Life.
Connect spiritually with beings who lost their life. Thank them for gracing the Earth and all of life with their presence, their beauty, and their strength.
They contributed so much to the web of life and their loss is devastating to all of us.
Wish them a journey home to Source filled with grace, love, and light.
Let’s honor all the beings who died. This creates healing for all of life. Emanate love and light to all who lost their lives.
This level of consciousness actually allows all of us to live more consciously on the Earth.
Connect spiritually with the land you live on, the compassionate ancestors on the land, and to all the nature beings including the elements. Emanate love and light daily and feel that love returned to you.
Life on Earth will change as we do this. This I KNOW! The full moon is February 9. Let’s gather our spiritual energies together
to show all of life how much we honor and love all that inhabits this Earth with us. On this full moon let our divine light hold all of life in love and radiate this light within and throughout the Earth.
If you are a new reader of The Transmutation News please read Creating a Human Web of Light on the homepage for a description of our full moon ceremonies.
Let’s keep our transfiguration work strong and perceive all of life in its divine light and strength. Don’t burden other living beings with your pity.
