You are invited to a Maya New Moon Meditation on May 25

new moon

Although many spiritual practices celebrate the full moon, Native people also focus on the new moon and a new moon meditation because it is the beginning of a new cycle and an important time to release the old and set intentions for the upcoming moon period.

Like other indigenous cultures, the ancient Maya placed a high degree of importance on lunar cycles. However, for them, Venus was the most important planet of all. Its cycles were studied carefully and major political events such as ascension of kings and military actions were all timed to coincide with auspicious Venus aspects.

A Healing Meditation from Molly

This is a meditation I led at Unity Church of Grand Rapids on April 20, 2017. Just four minutes long, it’s a great example of the fact that meditations can be short, and still bring peace and relaxation.

And if you have 20 minutes, here is a talk I did at Unity of Grand Rapids on the same day:

Falling off a horse and ho’oponopono

falling off a horse

How does falling off a horse relate to ho’oponopono? My riding instructor explained it to me.

“Horses don’t throw you, you fall off.”

Those were the words of my riding instructor every time I landed on the ground uttering the oft-repeated phrase, “the horse threw me.”

What she meant was that if I went off the horse, it was because I wasn’t paying attention to signals the horse was giving, or wasn’t seated well. Because if one is paying attention, and is well-seated, you will stay on no matter what the horse does.

I find this an apt analogy for how to go through life well. If we are balanced, discerning, and paying attention, we won’t be thrown off kilter by life’s bumps. And we won’t be blaming the horse, or other people, which is often the go-to reaction when something doesn’t go the way we want it.

This may explain how we got a leader in this country that most people are unhappy with. How did he get elected? Were we paying attention? Apparently many of us were not.

An exciting new book about Maya shamanism!

maya shamanismMy teaching partner, John Kralovec, has just released his book about his 35 years experience with Maya and Native American shamanism: Pathways to the Divine; One Man’s Journey Through the Shamanic Realm of the Ancient Maya. If Maya shamanism is of interest to you, I highly recommend it.

Here is the book description from Amazon:

Over the course of his thirty-five-year spiritual journey, Otto John Kralovec III has studied and participated in ceremonies with shamans and indigenous spiritual leaders throughout North America, Mexico, Guatemala, and Honduras.
Now, he vividly captures his inspiring personal shamanic odyssey toward his encounter with the Divine, supplemented by the latest anthropological findings on the ancient Maya, to guide us on a path back to the Source.

Why should we celebrate the spring equinox?

spring equinox 2On Monday March 20, at 6:20 a.m. EST, the northern and southern hemispheres of planet earth are equally illuminated. This marks the spring equinox in the northern hemisphere and the autumn equinox in the southern hemisphere.

It’s a day of equal balance of the hours of light and dark before the sun continues its journey towards longer daylight hours and warming temperatures in the northern hemisphere.

The equinox energy is strong for four days before and after March 20th, giving us time to bask in the opportunities and lessons it brings.

Where I live, in Michigan, it’s still gray and dreary, and it’s snowing as I write this. But a few days ago I saw a red-winged blackbird, and local lore says they come back when spring is just around the corner. So I took heart!

WHAT THE SPRING EQUINOX MEANS

Ancient cultures throughout history have celebrated this time of rebirth of Mother Earth. But what does it mean for us?
