Ancestors in Nature near Water. We are no longer at the threshold of transformation. We are in it and are being asked to allow the Great Transformation to nudge us toward peace and a more peaceful existence. The Ancestors and Allies guide us in the direction of peace. This peace will require our grief and our authenticity. This peace will require that we flow with the old ways of wisdom and slow down to meet them. If we can do this, we can meet ourselves in a new way. We cannot live at a pace that is faster than Life.

What we will find within the peace - if we choose to embrace this - is a deeper wisdom that allows for innovation and spiritual alertness, but honors our animal natures and instinctual selves, too. In this we can find the path to clarity that helps us to shine our light broadly, peacefully, unapologetically.

In this time of community retreat, we are being asked to mother ourselves, to mother and nurture our physical bodies and take time for personal healing and growth. Develop yourself and take care of yourself. We can support each other to do this by respecting each other and this sacred space of personal healing and self mothering.

Do practices that help the mind to flow as well. Do not allow the busy mind to get stuck or to fixate. If you feel this, get up and move, let if flow. Shift your state.

We are learning how to surrender to the changes brought about by Nature.

Most importantly: We must address the shadow. It is clearly in the center of everything now. The shadow hovers over our relationship with the Earth and therefore clouds our own sense of identity and belonging. We are lost. We must understand that our belonging is tied to the Earth, our home. It is a core wound, a deep shadow, to think otherwise.

It is important to use our relationship with the Ancestors and Allies and to use magic to create new structures for living in both of our homes - the Earth as Home and our physical home. This shadow of forgetting our identity has sounded a loud wake up call that has shaken our foundations and caused our work and life to be upended and rearranged.

We don't know what happens next. But it must be done with Love. Our platform of power is wobbly now, as it should be. There is change and peace needed to make things well.

The key will come through our clarity. The word clarity comes from Middle English and refers to divine splendor. Please consider the divine splendor that lives in you. Please bring the qualities of your divine splendor to the task at hand.

Finally, we are encouraged to find our voice and use it to become visible and strong. The Ancestors and Allies are nudging us from behind to find our voice to bring about a change of season for our own sake and for the sake of the Earth.

April ritual suggestion: Invite in the wise Ancestors and Allies to bring their blessing as you face the shadow. I invite you to make two pictures or drawings. The first to illustrate your shadow and/or our collective shadow, so you can "see" it. Allow yourself to find Love for it, and ask for help in transforming it. The second is to illustrate a vision for a transformation, one that you can hold for your own peace and our collective peace. Ask for this vision to be blessed. Thank the Ancestors and Allies for their support.

Ancestors in Nature. Your heart of devotion is a focal point this month. The Ancestors and Allies would like you to see that there is a molting that is wanting to occur there, an uncovering of something new. The heart of devotion is that part of you that offers service and support to others and to the world. Ask yourself: How do I serve now? What is needed now? What is the new perspective that is growing in my heart that I can show the world? A Springtime rebirth is about to happen in the way that you express your devotion and contribute to the greater good.

In addition, there is clarification needed around your work and life path. Find your clarity and invite the changes that are on the horizon. The transformation is on it's way: don't fight it. The Ancestors and Allies want you to know that you have the resources you need to make the change.

This month you can put the phase of rest and retreat behind you! The key to flow this month is in finding the magic of the body. Movement, cleansing and hydrating the body will bring a greater sense of abundance and will help your inner light to shine.

In your inner landscape, there are some dense energies and false beliefs that need focus and addressing. These heavy energies are impacting your embodiment, the expression of your wisdom through your voice and are holding down your genius. The Ancestors and Allies support you stepping in to your genius and creative power. See the ritual below to quiet these energies.

Your platform of power comes through standing out, communicating your vision and allowing your community to witness your personal gifts and contributions to the world. Nudge yourself gently to be more seen and heard. Know that you are not standing alone, but are standing with your Allies.

Finally, there is peacemaking that is needed with your Ancestors. This is a continuation of last month's message. If you are holding grudges or conflicts with your ancestors and it is time, tell them that it is time to make peace. Offer them libations of water to purify and forgive each other. This means to pour water for them. I usually do this near a tree close to my home. If additional help is needed, seek out someone who can assist you with ancestral healing work.

March ritual suggestion: Create sacred space by inviting in your Allies and well Ancestors and ask for their help. Write down repetitive negative thoughts and limiting or false beliefs on small pieces of paper. Ask for these to be quieted and then composted. Wrap them and place them in the freezer for at least a month. Then bring them outside and bury or cover them in the earth. Thank the Allies and Ancestors for their help.

To book a personal divination or shamanic healing session, please see my schedule.

Ancestors in Water: Turn to the inner work of cleansing and renewal. There are old habits, structures, thoughts and ways of being that are wanting to be dismantled. You can let them go.

Use this month to cleanse yourself, allowing the old to wash away. Look in to the nooks and crannies of your life and see what needs a deep cleaning, inside and outside. There is cleansing and renewal that wants to happen in many relationships. Some things are running on autopilot. Ask yourself if these things need to be changed. Let renewal and cleansing be your anchor.

Do not turn your back on Life, or on the Ancestors and Allies. Don't look away. Don't look away from the wisdom of the Origin that you know in your bones. Don't look away from the suffering you see happening on the planet. Find your voice and make your voice known to others about what you stand for, what you see happening, especially to the mothers and our Mother, the Earth.

Transform your relationship with the Earth, your Mother. It's a reciprocal relationship and has a back and forth to it. Bring her your voice and your sensual aliveness. Then let her aliveness penetrate and brighten you. You might find time to go in to nature to feel this and speak with her.

There is a consciousness that lives in the natural world. You can court that consciousness. It is this relationship that helps to bring you home to yourself this month. Bundle up and get outside if you can!

The cleansing that happens this month needs to address the heaviness that dampens your creativity and the perfect potential unfolding of your life. The cleansing is the remedy to bring movement back to the genius of your life path and work in the world. You have unique spiritual gifts to share and in order to share them, this cleansing and renewal is needed.

February ritual suggestions: Work with the spirit of Water and create a personal ritual cleansing for yourself. This could be a ritual bath or shower, a dunk in the ocean, or a smaller symbolic washing at your altar. Invoke the wise and well Ancestors, your Allies and the spirit of Water and ask for cleansing in specific areas of your life. Pour water out to the Earth as an offering for the Ancestors and Allies. Give thanks for their help.
