WAKING

WakingFeb

FEBRUARY 2023 -

Slowly I stir into Being

Remembering what it means

to come to Life again

Slowly I stretch 

feeling the joy of opening

Breathing freely once more

I shake loose

and see that you too

are here, we are so many

Awakening, again

to Life and its possibilities


** SHAMANIC INSPIRATION:

Although Springtime is still some way away here in Scandinavia, seeds are waking under ground and starting to get ready. Now stirs a new beginning, coming into being, even if we cannot see it…

GIVING THANKS

JMoon

DECEMBER 2022 -

Here we are on the threshold of the Winter Solstice, coming closer to the end of the year that has been. Before moving on, it can be good to stand still for a while, and remember.

Remember what this year has brought you. What you have learned and received. Decisions you made and choices that became clear. Teachings from the Spirits or Nature that have changed your life. What do you want to put down now and what you want to take with you?

Stay for a while and listen. Listen to …

HEALING SPACES

AutumnDeer

NOVEMBER 2022 -

Sometimes we need extra support to help us walk through Life. To help us keep going, help us find our way, to help us to heal and grow.

Where do we find this support, and how do we recognize and receive it when it comes?

A way to begin is to open to the Healing that is right here, right now, even though we may not be aware of it. Learning to come into contact with it can be both surprising and life changing.

Healing Spaces are waiting to hold us and gently guide us. Maybe …

OPEN SPACE

PrayingTrees

OCTOBER 2022 -

As leaves let go and branches remain, a different view emerges. In its nakedness, Autumn brings an opportunity to see more clearly where we are. Here we can stand in an essential way, with our life as it is now.

The ideas and plans and hopes we might have for this day, or for tomorrow, can rest a while. In this time, nothing new needs to grow. Instead we can let that which is finished to fall away. And stand, like Trees, not reaching for anything, but letting leaves go and danci…

CONNECTING IN CIRCLE

MBCircle22

JULY 2022

Things happen when we sit in Circle
It is a central part of our work with the Spirits
Bringing the Circle together and feeling the connection
As the Power flows through

The Circle is a birthplace, a beginning and an ending
Holding space for things to happen
There is a place for each of us here,
An invitation to step in and take part

Even in times when we may not feel the connection
it is still here, holding us and reminding us
that so much more can happen when we come together

Surrounded …

THE RIVER

StillWatersRunDeep

MIDSUMMER 2022

In literature and philosophy, rivers have long been used as a poetic analogy for Life, and with good reason. Rivers are born as a spring, where the water bubbles up from the depths of the Earth, just as we are born from our mothers. As they flow down the mountainside, they gain in power – just as we become more and more physically powerful as we grow. The river becomes stronger and carries a heavier load as it moves along, but in times of drought it can shrivel to a trickle, and …

SOLID GROUND

TreeStaff

MARCH 2022

Sometimes it feels as if change happens so fast, we cannot keep up. One morning we wake and everyday reality is shifting into something almost unrecognizable. Many of us might have felt this as the experience of war seeps through Europe, reaching far and wide. It is all connected and wherever we are, it affects us.

Now more than ever, it is important to keep hold of our practice and ask the Spirits to help keep us steady. To remember what is at our core and keep connecting to Power.…

REMEMBERING RELATIONSHIP

1 Åsbacka DP Spring

FEBRUARY 2022

“You are not alone”. Many times have we said these words on courses and in circles. The Spirits are with us all the time, if we remember to reach out and open. But how do we remember? It is up to us to connect, but it is not always easy when time is tight or we feel weak, tired or stressed. Often it is hardest to ask for help when we most need it.

A good place to begin is where you are right now – right where you live. You can choose to relate to your home, your local area or wor…

THE DARK & THE LIGHT

AsbMoon

WINTER SOLSTICE 2021

This year, the Full Moon and Winter Solstice come very close to each other. In the darkest night, there is also light. How do we allow Dark and Light to dance together in us, and in our lives? So often Light is used to mean “good” and dark to mean “bad” but in Nature this is not true at all. Light is simply light, and dark is dark. They both have great and important qualities, and both are needed to keep the balance of Life. There are many nocturnal animals that depend on d…

REFLECTING TIME

Wintercall

NOVEMBER 2021 -

We are in a time of transition. Here in the North we are now in the Dark Season, a place of magical stillness and peace, going slow and turning within. There is much Power here, a reflecting Power, like the Moon shining on a still pond. It can help us to look deeper and see more clearly. As we slow down and become quiet, we begin to find ourselves again.

Before going on, we make room for reflection. A pause, a breath, a stillness before beginning. In this seemingly empty spac…
