A sacred time of Initiation

Hello beautiful beings,

In these times of global transformation, we might feel at times unable to digest or navigate the changes in our environment and world at large. There is a sense of constant change, of the unknown, of mystery lingering in the air. It is a sacred time of initiation. Please be kind to yourselves. 

Sometimes we are called into initiation individually, sometimes collectively. But what is initiation you might ask. In the words of beautiful mystic writer Toko-pa Turner:

“By its very nature, initiation is a humbling of the will. It comes as a tsunami would, wild with nature, shattering us on all levels. And though every part of us may mount resistance to being changed, we are not meant to emerge intact…Rather, we are meant to be disillusioned, dissolved, disappointed before any thought of rebuilding can begin.” 

A time of surrender

The pandemic is exposing and revealing all the places that need strengthening and tending in our inner and collective systems. It is a sacred time of undoing, unlearning, and deep remembering. It is a time of caring for the spaces that yearn for healing.

To embrace the new–we must release that which no longer serves us, cultivate our life force, and offer the gifts of our medicine. I can’t deny that I feel validated when the messages I get from Spirit are confirmed by elders in the indigenous spiritual community.

In the words of elder Elena Bernabe, she urges the women to untie the knots of our hair which will in turn help untie the knots in our hearts. Thus, she counsels us to “remove all parts of you that are no longer fertile.” I have been holding space for this process for myself and clients for many years now. It is challenging and essential soul work to live authentic lives.

We are invited to become present in our own bodies, to journey into our hearts, to root into the earth, to dip our toes and immerse ourselves in the waters of the feminine—to rest, restore, replenish, and cultivate our life force. To witness ourselves in this chrysalis stage. 

Not only is it time to release that which does not belong within us but also to usher our medicine from the depths of our being. You are a vital thread in the web of creation with potent medicine to heal the world. You can tap into your sense of purpose to help you navigate the new emerging landscape. 

May we reclaim the essence of our being and become more fully ourselves as we connect to the wisdom of our ancestors and Mother Earth. The more we root into our origins the more we will be able to embody our medicine, offer our gifts to the world, and shine the bright light the world yearns for right now.

In the words of beloved wise Elder Malidoma Some, who calls our present period a time of initiation:

“The medicine we brought to this planet is yet to be unleashed fully.”

Fluid like water

sacred Apu

The call of the Feminine–In this crisis, we have the opportunity to learn, to grow in awareness, to stay open rather than contract, to utilize our gifts and to discover our humble place in the web of life.

Shinrin-yoku. The medicine of forest bathing

In a world that seems to turn mechanical, I can’t help but feel drawn to all that is organic and pulsing with aliveness. My senses begin to awaken in such embodied presence. Some places take us to a state of connection we long to inhabit, where our essence can blossom, uninhibited, unbridled, and free. The…

Water is life. Protecting Standing Rock Sioux

Water is the source of life. Water is Sacred. Let’s protect it. Dear ones, there is so much fear and frustration in the air moving some to act in inhuman ways. I imagine you are all familiar with The Dakota Access pipeline, which threatens to endanger the water, land, and cultural heritage of Native Americans….

This fire in my belly and heart

How do you awaken the fire in your belly, the one you know was once there but life seems to have extinguished?  I was asked this question by a sacred flow client recently. I humbly meditated on the nature of fire and its imminent absence in our bodies and souls. And I remembered this quote…

Light in your heart

I realize I’ve taken a long pause in my writings. It has been in a period of incubation I like to think, of living suspended in the threads of a new rhythm set in motion as I learn to navigate my new life thrust into a full time job as an architect and a transformative relationship; while still dipping my toes in the waters of Sacred Flow work.

Journey to the Sacred. Finding Sanctuary on the Inca Trail.

My ancestors, like many Indigenous traditions around the world, felt an ancestral pull to honor the body and spirit of the earth and build in harmony with the land. It is this sacred connection to land and cosmos that inspired them to design an architecture that flows not against, but rather, in harmony with the rhythms of the earth and cosmos. Honoring contours of earth, their structures adapted to the formations of the landscape. Their architecture didn’t seek to dominate the land but to enhance its beauty…

I am writing this article to claim the sacredness of the home as a safe haven where to nourish your life force, stir your creativity, feed your soul, enliven your spirit.

The sensual spiritual bathroom

feminine space

The bathroom can be the most neglected space in the house, evoking feelings of guilt, shame or plain fear. We often respond to this triggered emotions by over sanitizing this space; making it cold, sterile, bare, silenced, desacralized. Our dwellings seem to hide the bathroom or seek to subdue its design as we disconnect from body and soul. This is a call to celebrate the bathroom as a a place of flow, communion, transformation, self-care and well being for our sensual, spiritual selves.

Ode to Feminine Space. An architecture of flow. An architecture of the feminine

We are sucking the soul out of our lives and not replenishing it. And yet we feel that something is missing, yearning for a different kind of experience of wholeness that deeply feeds, awakens, and revitalizes our souls. Are you longing for intimacy, deep communication, connection? This is an invitation to notice, liberate, express, and experience the feminine: the feminine dimension of our being, the feminine dimension of space, the feminine dimension of the sacred…
