Fate, free will, embodiment and natural wisdom

This week's Cancer Solstice and the upcoming Cancer New Moon offer us a powerful time for new creations, and for being our greatest selves. Much of this episode was devoted to conscious embodiment, and the ways in which astrology can help us express our own unique energetic frequencies as embodied humans. According to the traditions of yoga and Ayurveda, 'seating your Self', i.e. embodying your Soul/Higher Self is the way to health and well-being, as well as to freeing ourselves from the bonds of karma. 

The book I mentioned is titled 'Red Hot and Holy', by Sera Beak and I can't recommend it enough for a fun and informative read on an embodied approach to the spiritual path, and the divine feminine. A short, to the point book on spirituality and awakening by an authentic and (in my experience) trustworthy spiritual teacher is Adyashanti's 'The Way of Liberation'. 

Join me for a three-class series on Discovering Karma in the Astrology Chart, beginning July 15th. Learn how to find the energetic 'knots' in your own chart and how to release them.

Clear the fear of persecution to claim your natural wisdom

Clear the fear of persecution to claim your natural wisdom

Does the fear of persecution keep you from your natural wisdom? Prevent you from speaking what you know? In this episode of The Natural Wisdom Podcast, healer Belinda Noakes and I went there - to the echoes in today's world of the Inquisition and the 'burning times', the difficulty in holding our center and our balance during a time of intense polarization, and some work on healing the trauma.

At about 45 minutes in to the episode, Belinda led me through a healing exercise to clear the fear of even having this conversation and releasing it on the podcast!!

We touched on polarizing topics, yet with the intention of holding space for all viewpoints. Clearly, The Natural Wisdom Podcast takes the 'side' of staying connected with ourselves as nature, and there is tension today between natural versus synthetic/technological treatments for everything from human health to climate. It is my great desire to contribute to awareness that allows us to make conscious choices on the personal and collective level that keep us in touch with our membership in the Earth's ecosystem.
