Thanks for joining me!
Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton
Like smooth breasts
ancient and hard
they rise and fall
with the seasons
orange hues of maples glowing in the fall
snow-capped cedars bow
with winter winds
mounted as orbs along
the highway horizon
coniferous and deciduous spire
The Canadian Shield
Every year we set aside a day to acknowledge our Earth. I have questions regarding this! The Earth means many things to many people. How one perceives it is how they interact with their world. To start the conversation off, What does the Earth mean to you? Is it just the planet we live on? and who gave it the name Earth? Is that its real name? If it’s just a planet to you, why is it we cannot get off of it? Why are only rich astronauts and air force personnel allowed to leave? Why do I feel like secrets surround our beautiful 3rd rock from the sun? How are you celebrating our planet on Earth Day?
Do you have a different perspective? Do you value the soil, dirt, ground, or land you stand on? Is it the clay or mixture of sediment. The compost of centuries rotting beneath your feet; one upon the other, waiting to be un-earthed and discovered, that has meaning? How will you be celebrating the soil on Earth Day?
Or is it the oceans of fresh waters beneath, hidden not being utilized or discussed that lies the importance of celebrating a day a year? after all is there really a water crisis then? How will the waters rise and be released from it’s caverns on Earth Day?
What do you value about Earth Day? Our language even gives it a negative connotation according to the dictionary. To be Earthy is to be mundane, terrestrial, and implies a contrast to that which is heavenly. To be un-earthed is to be celestial, spiritual, divine, or heavenly. Oh the value we place in naming things, sacred words imparted throughout our society. Even this article can be perceived as becoming Earthy, lusty, rough, unrefined, crude to even be discussed on Earth Day!
For me I will be going for a walk in my forest, praying and celebrating nature, while leaving footprints upon the soil I trod. I will be releasing prayers and affirmations for the beauty I find. I will dream of escaping and flying into outer space to get a better view of humanity, and I will honor and respect the words I choose while celebrating my existence and life journey everyday on Terra Gaia Jacqueline!
Hello and happy spring to all of you! Today marks the third year I have started blogging and it is the 13th anniversary of Lisa’s death. My how time fly’s and answers still remain elusive as the day she died. As I teeter on the edge I am beginning to realize that it has turned into a wonderful hike. I feel the cool air as I breath in the poison and I am surrounded by deciduous beings blasting out healing energy as I carry on. Two things spring to mind as some of the lessons I have learned, not only of Lisa’s death but for every death that followed hers, and there have been many. This is my flowing list;
My father, Uncle Eddy, Scott, Jenny, Heidi, Shadow, cousin Julie, Uncle Roger, Gwen, Ricky-lee, Rick, Barry, cousin Gloria, cousin George, Neighbors, work acquaintances, and now my Aunt Edna. I still feel like I am leaving someone out.
Firstly “TIME” does help with healing as I crawl my way back onto my path. I now walk with confidence that tomorrow is another day to deal with my emotions, which has become a daily process of acknowledging, receiving, feeling and releasing them. It is a very human problem to push them aside and hide them until we are forced to feel them again. I have learned it is better to get it over with and fill the void with LOVE. Let love in! Love of self, love of the memories, love for each moment I am living. Prayer & meditation have helped me and promising myself to live each day being as authentic and truthful to my journey helps keep me grounded.
Secondly, LOVE never fades for those we long to hold. Finding love, experiencing love and letting love go is the lesson we are here to experience. If love is the greatest feeling we can experience and fear the most profound opposite then I have learned my lessons. For to let love go one must conquer the fear and begin to live again. If we don’t, death will overcome our hearts and we will remain stagnant spiraling into non existence. Love is the answer to every question and the prize at the end of our journey. As I teeter on the edge of my journey I remind you to love your way and through TIME,
the future will prove the past!
Spirituality is the soul’s search for God. It is connecting the human form to a higher dimensional being.
God, creator, source, whatever you want to call him/her/them, says we are made in their image. Genesis 1:26 “Let us make man (male & female) in our image, after our likeness; let them have dominion over…” Genesis 1:27 “Male and female he created them.” and Genesis 2:7 “and man (we) became a living creature.”
What image is God talking about? I believe it is the image of LOVE. Love is the greatest force, energy and expectation that we are to strive towards as a living creature. This is why in Matthew 22:37 of the new testament, Jesus took the 10 commandments and brought them down to two, “Love God with all your heart, soul and mind, this is the first and greatest commandment.” The second being “Love your neighbor as yourself. All the law and the prophets land on these two commandments.” Love is the image of which we as male & female are sent forth to create and experience life.
Love is the fractal that resides in us that is the God, source, creator part. Spirituality is the soul’s search for our creator. Once realized, it reaffirms that we do not need a priest, pastor or guru to connect us to our creator. Once we realize we possess Love, we can connect to the God fractal within us thus connecting to God. Love comes in different forms. Self love is the gratefulness we feel for our bodies, our time and our breath each day. Love for others is the action we put into caring, supporting and relating to others and spirituality is the heavenly love for our creator. It is this connection that reminds us we are not alone.
As a fractal of God, we can reside and acknowledge our greater self, mission and tribe through our spiritual connections. This happens when we bring down the many forms of love into our heart & soul, thus raising our vibrations. It is through the vibration of love that the God outside of us connects to the God within us. This is also the process of manifestation and creation of our hearts desires. It is here in this bigger picture, that we strive to attain and exist, as we live each day being bombarded by the lower frequency energies.
John 4:24 – “God is spirit and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.”
If God is spirit we should be spiritual!
Sending LOVE to all of you,
-By utilizing the natural cosmic flow of energies happening around you
-Moon charts – full moon in Leo this month
-Astrological Events – planets, nodes, trines, squares, conjunctions.
– Seasons – Winter is a great time to work on releasing & refilling yourself
-Collective Events – Protests
-Removing negativity in thoughts, words & deeds and replacing them with positivity, encouragement and right action
– Concentrating on what is working among the Chaos – like people are awakening, rising and speaking up for themselves now.
On February 16th we will experience a “Full Moon in Leo“
The full moon in Leo is giving us the tools to heal duality so only unity & love reign again. The full moon in Leo comes with healing energy and it gives us the opportunity to continue our inner work of synthesis, by working with our heart centers. Healing our heart centers and its wounds is the passage & triumph of love and unity.
We have the opportunity to balance both aspects of ourselves, the individualized one, incarnate on a human plane and the aspect of us that is one with all, bringing unity, unconditional love and assistance.
The 2/22/22 portal is another important event that will affect us all month. It is bringing in 6 &7th dimensional frequencies to help us align with who we are, in essence.
By expressing our heart, emotions and personal truths, we regain sovereignty and full charge of our lives. It is pivotal we are firm in who we are and our personal truth. Rather than keeping things inside, we begin to break free from our own limitations, moving forward in integrity.
This Leo Moon is highly influenced by all of the astrology around it (Leo its self, sun in Aquarius, conjunction of mars in Capricorn trine Uranus, Venus etc…)
This is a time of profound restoration and purification, higher creativity and connection with the illumined realms.
Work with the violet flame, remain centered and concentrate on the Love that you are.
With infinite Love, I am
This type of writing is pulled from the page as someone reads a quick story or series of words gathered. It is up to the poet to arrange the words or sentences into a free style poem. Here is my latest rapid fire poem.
The Golden light within us needs to come forth
Rise and speak your truth
Upon waking I have to leave the sanctuary that blankets me
Hide from those until there is no more blackness walking about
Listen to our native ancestors who legends need storytelling
Wrapped in laws, surrounded by the chill of steel
Where is there fairness among soap peddlers? While washing our sins away
By Jacqueline Denis
I am starting this year with YIN POETRY. During December I committed to getting up early and writing from my heart. A concept taught to me by Vanessa Shields (www.gertrudeswritingrooom.com) who had a few online gatherings on how to write YIN Poetry. My experience with writing before the sun rises started with “oh no I don’t think I like this!” to “I do need a different way to rise each day”. The idea of starting each morning with my heart was truly the most compassionate thing I have done lately for myself. My suggestion is to give it a try, if all else fails you can always do the leftover dishes in the sink.
I speak up as one among the many
willing and able
to rise above the journey
Using my heartfelt desires,
to unite humanity.
I write through waves of confusion, trauma, and pain
hoping to find a better place within.
My voice speaks to hearts
Gently peeling away the puzzle pieces
with a goal to finish the game.
Coming together by finding ourselves.
Only then we will be able to see
The one beautiful image we are.
Blissed rays falling
lying in surrender
to an invisible G-d
From coast to coast we are creating a revolution, standing together with the main goal of taking back our Charter of Rights & Freedoms! This is history in the making.
It is not about those that chose to take the Jab and those that did not. It is about having the choice in the first place. Look around Canadians we love our land, our rights and our freedoms. Do not concede to give them away to those we entrusted to have our best interests. The last two years should show you they do not care about you, they desire only your compliance. Do not give your power away anymore! By standing together, we can Co-create a better Canada, one that is for the people and by the people. The real power is within each of you moving forward in Peace, Love and Unity.
Slow down and listen to your own natural rhythm. As human beings we are all guided by the rising and setting sun, changes in temperature, time to eat, sleep and be active. While our minds throughout the day stay focused on other pursuits, our breath and heartbeats are there to remind us to connect with our own natural internal rhythms. Today on my walk I was reminded to feel my emotions, silence my mind and listen to my breath and heartbeat as I immersed myself in nature. It was here my soul connected and I was one with all.
I don’t know about you guys but I have had one hell of a 2021. A year full of changes! There are times I sit and wonder how much I have accomplished in one year and then there are times I feel I have not done enough. This past year has inspired me, challenged me, led me down paths untraveled and brought me to my knees praying for answers. Yet I found peace among chaos, truths among lies and purpose among the hopium. Take time to release all that does not serve you, replace all that is missing in your life and find balance as you stand for humanity this year. Take time to write a resolution that fits your heart beat, that stands for who you are at the core of your being and always teeter towards the side that will tip the scale in your favour! I surround you with Love & Light.
My 2022 Resolution:
I AM THAT I AM A DIVINE BEING RELEASING ALL THAT I DO NOT NEED, ALL JUDGEMENTS, EMOTIONS, EXPECTATIONS. REPLACING NEGATIVE THOUGHTS WITH POSITIVE ONES, DEATH WITH LIFE, STAGNATION WITH ACTION. I AM NOT ALONE, I AM SURROUNDED BY WARRIORS. I AM NOT FEARFUL WITH LOVE IN MY SOUL. I AM FORGIVING, EVER HOPEFUL AND ALIGNED WITH ALL THAT IS JUST AND MERCIFUL. I AM HUMBLE AS I WALK MY PATH THROUGH DIMENSIONS OF EXISTENCE. AND SO IT IS!
