Mother Earth, Life Force, Creativity, Healing, Love....all of these words and "concepts" are pointing to the same thing. The energy that heals our deepest wounding, the energy that allows Life to live itself through every one of us, every animal, plant, rock, tree, human, river, and ocean, is all the same energy. Therefore, all forms of creativity, all forms of life, all experiences--both shadow and light--are sacred. As the philosopher George Santayana once stated, "The Earth has music for those who listen," and this Earth-inspired music is offered in service to healing.
We Will Rise: A Prayer for Mother Earth
In honor of our precious Earth. When we heal her, we heal ourselves. When we heal ourselves, we heal her.
In honor of a Luna Moth. It lives as a moth for only one week. It has no mouth and does not eat. It only lives to love.
In honor of two Pileated Woodpeckers--a mated pair for life. They do not migrate to warmer weather in the winter where life could be easier. They courageously embrace the harshness and darkness of winter together--holding both shadow and light together-bonded by love.
Flight of the Cormorant
In honor of a dying Cormorant. Injured, lying on the beach and offering the sacred and painful lesson around embodying our powerlessness while witnessing and holding space for another's suffering--a painful experience of the shadow side of life. In return for this sacred offering, it did not die alone, and it was held in love until its last breath.
In honor of our Sacred Wound and the healing power of Mother Nature who shows us how to reclaim abandoned places within ourselves.
Healing Drops of Love
In honor of Rain. Water is synonymous with life. Without it, life does not exist. Water heals, water gives life, water is love.
