Rewilding Me

It’s a merry morning as I look out my window in the early a.m. California frost.  ‘Cold as hell’ is welcomed after our long hot ‘n heated summer – the crisp air and a frozen nose is just what I need to wake me from my hibernation of a warm toasty bed recovering from what has ailed me.

As I arise today, I decide I will take more space to allow myself to breathe and be for a spell.  Knowing that I’ve woken into new knowledge of what being really means, I steadily steam on in search of the rewilded me of whom I’ve been seeking for all my lives.

At a recent point in my journey all these pieces named me have been tossed in the air and are now making their descent…slowly gliding, invited downward by the grace of gravity, by which I know my time is not finished yet here on this beautiful earth. Blessed Be.  When all of me lands, I will have a new life…again.

The way will show the way, Antonio Machado says it so mystically in his beautiful writings.

“Wanderer, there is no way, the way is made by walking. Walker, your footsteps are the road and nothing more.  Walker, there is no road, the road is made by walking.  Walking you make the road, and turning to look behind you see the path you never again will step upon.  Walker there is no road, only foam trails on the sea.”

I myself am learning to walk again, humbly honoring these words, this concept and strategy, if you will, to have faith with each step into the mystical, the unknown and uncharted territory of the moments I walk.  I carry with me as I go an invisible bag containing the understanding that anxiety, depression or fear can come if I’m looking too far ahead or behind me; therefore, the task and practice afoot is allowing the past to reside in the past and the future to be unknown…to simply be present in the Now.

How can I move forward if I’m gazing backwards?  How can I be present if I’m dreaming off deep into the future?  Taking my eyes off my own two feet, the ground I walk on today can take away the magical possibilities that lie underneath the presence of each soulful step into the worlds that will open wide in faith and reknow me.

I am a traveler on the in-between of old and new, stripped down, naked, humbled, unmasked from the cloak of ego.  Each step I take now opens a new door of opportunity, possibility and potential of the acceptance and truth of who I AM.

I’ve been a superwoman my whole life, bearing the burden of being in a world wrought with fear and programming but a new year, a new time is upon me…upon us.   It’s here for us all, brothers and sisters.

Today I release the cape that covers my true spirit and trade it for the desire to be naturally guided in my journey forward, aligned, connected to my inner-being choosing the road not yet traveled, the one of faith heading into the mystic, free to go with the flow of Source.

I AM rewilding me.

Love, Shannon

Falling Back

Here…we… are… a moment of pause in the deep stillness before entering into the resting space of darkness.

Today

I gather rich dark nutritious fruits and vegetables from my backyard, mini orchard and garden. 

It was early morning, and the moon was fully present.  I contemplated my own life’s harvest, all that I have collected on the journey within my Self this year.

I pondered those things and asked what must I compost down, what is no longer needing to grow,  flourish, take space, or be part of my experience moving forward?  Which pieces do not nourish or feed my soul any longer?  Which parts simply just do not taste sweet or good anymore?

I wondered of the ways not to discard them, but instead turn them over transforming them into rich, fertile soil to plant new seeds that can feed the life I will step into in the seasons to come.

I love Autumn and its ability to catch me as I fall back into the Earth’s loving embrace of Reciprocal Healing. And I allow what needs to die or unbecome as I honor the possibilities and that which will begin again.

On Wings & Waves, rest well today friends.
