.In these days leading up to the hinging of two decades, I've been granted many gifts... a mystical twelve days of Solstice, so to speak. A journey to end a decade of faulty footing and feeling my way with my fingertips, dragging my poor night vision behind me - I should have eaten more carrots!
"Well, auspicious days ahead!" Shout the Spirits from Timeless Spacelessness, from the Interior External, from the Heavens above and below. So, as I ponder the past and set intentions for the coming decade, here is my 'Magical Mystical Tour' of [some of] the Twelve days of Solstice as gifted me by my generous and loving Spirit Guides (please forgive the clunky rhyming and timing)...
On the first day of Solstice my Spirits granted me a talisman fashioned as Great Pig. "If you discover Pig as your Spirit Animal it could be that your life is about to flourish. In Greek tradition Demeter, an earth Goddess who also held dominion over fruitfulness; had a Pig companion. The Pig totem also brings good luck, particularly with money. Some gamblers carry Pig figurines as an amulet with this in mind."
On the second day of Solstice my Spirits gave to me a great Raven in flight. The Raven ascended in a meditation this week, in flight over a tremendous monolithic wall that I had built. As she ascended on the other side, I saw her dance joyfully and eat the flames of fire that licked the ground around her. A message of conquering the fears that keep me down...
On the third day of Solstice my Spirits gave to me great mountains shifting and moving themselves... This week I succumbed to the common cold, fully loaded with excruciating sinus pain and fever. On the most feverish night I dreamt deeply and vividly of what I thought at first to be rocks falling from a mountain, the start of an avalanche, I feared! But twin guides appeared and revealed that the rocks weren't falling, they were actually shifting. The two mountains were moving themselves! I marvelled at the spectacle, then my Raven guide (a common thread throughout these journeys, lit before me, grew great, long legs and danced for joy once again as the excitement mounts for the start of a shiny new Beginning.
On the fourth day of Solstice my Spirits gave to me an afternoon spent with my most musest of muses, Mr. David Bowie. <3 In keeping with the auspiciousness of the mystical gifts, I was granted only last night, an afternoon with a generous, kindred hearted David Bowie. His face wore the gauntly beautiful Bowie of the 70s, and our hearts connected deeply intimately as we discussed all matters of the Spirit. He is kind and I share gleefully all the recurring dreams I've had of the two of us spending countless hours together discussing plans to collaborate on art projects and talk creativity. Our time together ended with him peering deeply into my eyes before dropping me at my door. I love you David Bowie. A perfect gift.
On the fifth day of Solstice my Spirits gave to me a big, fat golden diamond ring... whatever that means. ;)
On the sixth day of Solstice my Spirits gave to me a deep connection to the Great Sea. The Ocean called this morning, Solstice morning, sending me dancing Dolphins, Puffer Fish and Whales as I entered my Solstice meditation. Deep emotions of Solstice celebration and joy. I've always felt a connection to the Ocean. The great feminine energy and Power ebbing and flowing with ferocity and calm. Her presence is tangible, the weight of Goddess Influence, the flow of emotional reign. I feel it so strongly at times, I could cup my hands a splash my face with salinous dew...
On the seventh day of Solstice my Spirits gave to me a Heavenly Sword to wield before me. again during this morning's Solstice meditation, a Beautiful sword was placed before me - embedded in a stone, of course, and I retrieved it with ease. I carried it out before me and it gave me the confidence I sought and I heard Them say, "You already have what you need, but this will help you feel it." My cache of Spiritual weaponry and tools continues to grow....
On the eighth day of Solstice my Spirits gave to me a transformation into a Creature of the Sea. Today's Solstice Meditation also sank me down to the depths of the deepest Ocean, where I scuttled across the dark sand with creatures unknown to man. I then suddenly transformed into a mermaid of unparalleled beauty. I swam with grace, strength and speed through the heavy waters, forcefully breaking the surface and propelling myself, once again, over a monolithic wall. I flew through the Heavens and blue skies, through rainbows, passed Hummingbirds and Doves and Gulls, and dove down into a shimmering pool of gold... exalting peace.
On the ninth day of Solstice my Spirits gave to me a Phoenix rising from a great Flame. A perfect way to end my journey thus far. A rejuvenation, rebirth, and reinvention of self. Perhaps the next 3 days will shed more light on the coming year, who's to know? I'm left with hope and a little more lightness to my being. I cherish these moments and journeys, and consider them to truly be gifts from Heaven, from God, from the Spirit World.
I wish you all lingering afternoons with your musest of muses and ample auspicious omens, and may your eyes be open to all that you truly have. Blessings to each of you at this pivot, and may the most enchanting enchantments cross this coming decade's threshold.
Peace and Love <3
