Awestruck. In orbit, a healing journey in motion.

Reframing the view of our revolutions, from Polaris

Mystery at work

There is a great sense of mystery infusing the universe. Our ancestors revered the sacred mysteries of earth and cosmos. Tonight is the Full Moon. Another point in the cycle of the moon’s journey around the earth and sun.

I felt Her power to reflect light on my skin deep in the Amazon and it wasn’t even a full moon, yet my body and whole being was bathed so completely in love.

Cosmic ruminations of the Full Moon

Some of us humans spend some space and time piercing through the veils and wheels of samsara. What if we were just searching for the most beautiful pattern to come into resonance & motion?

We set a new pattern in motion when we find our core, our center and trustingly explore our path of travel the way a planet emerges from chaos into order and into orbit. We make our own mandala with our life’s movement, a journey in search of beauty and harmony.

If change is the nature of life, I wonder, is every revolution, every oscillation ever the same? What would the mandala of your life look like? Deep medicine, a work in progress..

I wrote these thoughts undulating across my mind, body and heart last night and found these two gorgeous videos via twitter this morning. I am adding one made with beloved healers, Ayahuasqueros from the Amazon. I would love to know which one speaks to you and why.

The Biological Advantage of Being Awestruck – by @Jason_Silva from Jason Silva

“Being enchanted by the magic of experience..Awe has helped us survive, in part by increasing empathy.”


AYAHUASQUEROS from Soundwalk Collective

“…The melodies that shamans bring back from their visions are called “icaros”; they help navigate the space of ayahuasca consciousness…”


In joy, I am filled with awe, awestruck. And you dear wonderer, what fills you with awe?

    I find awe everyday… most of it fills me with wonderful thoughts occasionally sadness at how some people are still so lost but for the most part it stops me in my tracks and pours into me with inspiration, ideas, and just a moment to just be present with the wonderful things we can only being to understand,, life the universe and everything.. grateful to be a wonderful interactive part of it ♥

    have an awe some day

    hi marjory,
    i enjoyed this post. and the vimeo too. very nice reminder. i just mentioned that the only thing that has ‘saved’ me from life’s most demanding challenges has been ‘awe’. it keeps me empowered and humble.


    the vimeo doesn’t show if i open link to specific post but does otherwise.
