I have been thinking a lot about fire and wind.
About storms and about the ways in which our bodies ARE OF THE EARTH.
As above, so below. As without, so within.
Have you noticed big strong windstorms lately? Recently we had such strong winds move through Portland. It was about two days of constant chaos in the trees, gusts that would rattle the entire house.
And during that time you could really feel the collective energy doing the same thing. We were being stirred up. Thoughts and routines became chaotic. Things weren’t lining up the way they are supposed to. Emotions were spontaneous and unexpected.
So what do you do when you feel that there is a hurricane rolling through your thoughts and emotions, stirring you up in your soul? How do you stay grounded when you feel ready to be blown away? My advice…
Look at the trees.
Trees have roots, deep into the Earth. They stay grounded. They let go of the branches that are too heavy or unhealthy. They drop leaves and cones. And most of all, they sway. They stay flexible. They don’t stand there and wonder when the wind will stop, or worry about making it through the storm. They move in the air, take the path of least resistance. Dance in the breeze. Stay nimble. Stay humble. Don’t fight that which moves you, don’t try to fight the current. Float.
And even stronger than the winds right now seems to be the fire. Here on the West Coast it seems like everything is burning. It’s been such a dry, hot summer, and the wildfires are sure proof of that. But recently my friend Nicole wrote about the fires, and it reminded me of something so very important. Fire is transformation. Fire is healing. Fire creates growth. It is such a necessary part of the cycle.
So I’ve tuned in a lot to the collective energy on the planet. I absolutely will not watch the news or even follow current events right now, because I just can’t afford to lose my center in these times. I can still feel it. In my clients, in my community, in the way that the Earth feels from day to day. These are big times, and there has been so much stirred by the winds, and now it’s time to clean house.
Many of us are currently the container for a great blazing fire. Fuming and hot and relentless. I see anger and fear and control at the forefront for many right now. It’s a new cycle of souls awakening to consciousness, and it’s fierce. Have you felt this way recently? As if there was a wildfire taking over inside, burning up all that you want to hold on to, and all that you thought that you were? And if this is happening to you, what is the best way to handle it? Our society has you believe that you can take a pill, alcohol, drugs etc. to blind yourself from your truth. How much easier to ignore it and cover it up with fast food addictions and fear based news on T.V.? But guess what…..that’s not going to help you anymore.
It’s time to let that fire burn.
And my advise? Stoke that fire! Feed it! Walk straight into it. If you are afraid, good. If you are an emotional wreck and you feel like there is nowhere to turn…good. It means you are doing your work. It means you have found your truth. And once that happens, you simply have to burn down everything that you have held onto, anything that is waiting, and suddenly you find yourself in the place where the ashes have fed the soil. Where new life begins to sprout in ways that you had never imagined possible, and where there is no longer room for fear and for hatred. Your tropical paradise is waiting for you. But you have to do the work to get there. Those old habits and jobs and relationships and thoughts and emotions are not going to go away on their own. It’s time to throw them in the fire. It’s time to find peace and find love. It’s time wake up.
I’ve recently found that having a reiki session soon after your clearing is a fantastic way to help the new vibration enter into your body, and to clear any outstanding fears or negative energy that is still in your way. It’s a precious process. And having someone to guide and support your through the darkness is a very valuable gift. I am here to support you. You are not alone.

As always, please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns that you have. I look forward to hearing from you! As we wind down these last days of summer, I wish you peace and abundance.
