Community and Earth

Community is one aspect that takes centre point 2021. I will go more into it when I upload the reading on my FB page on the 30th.
Below are a few self reflective questions, and we begin with looking at the relationship you have with the earth and the land you live on. I’ve seen people speak about having a relationship with the earth but not knowing anything about the land they live on and it’s history and if they do, the importance of respecting it and there’s a whole heap to talk about here too.

Your relationship with your ancestors gives you a strong foundation to build on and the earth you are made of. How well do you know where you come from? What do you know? What can you do to strengthen your relationship to self, your ancestors, to the land/s your from? Do you have connection to the ethnic communities you’re made from?

 optimal user experience.

What’s your relationship to family? This is not to say if you don’t have one it hinders your growth as a person. That shit needs to stop. There are other ways of establishing roots besides staying in contact with toxic family members. Not all ancestors and future ancestors are going to like you or get along with, facts but
there is a way of honouring family and your roots without being made to feel guilty because of those that are too wounded to have healthy relationships with. People have to understand that not tolerating toxic and abusive behaviour from family members is also liberating ancestral threads. Sometimes the most peaceful and respectful thing to do is walk away.

Looking at the relationship you have with self but also with others. What needs your attention to transform to come into relationships with others that hold depth and meaning?
What are your boundaries like? Do you offer the same loyalty,safety and presence others give and vice versa?

And, have you begun decolonising? Understand upholding christian holidays and why.te supremacy (is also ws) isn’t liberating our earth, ancestors or self. Whyte colonisation and structures have much pain associated with our ancestors which we feel deeply of we’re paying attention.

This is some examples of the depth of looking at grounding to build solid community and support for yourself. It really is getting to know you so fucking well that when you step into community you feel safe and not bypassing unhealthy patterns out of need that deep down you feel resentful for. It’s getting crystal in these areas & walking it.

The War that’s Coming

It’s a stirring that never goes away. A chaos that’s deep in the marrow. A burn that’s lived through the rage of all the women before you. A scream that’s eternally lived from centuries of pain from the tribes I am from.

No matter how you expect a woman should be, she will never be what you want her to be no matter how hard you try to make her fear her fire. It’s a furnace of heat that will melt your fucking insides with the sting of her words and the trickery of her niceness.

Understand, if you take the light out of her eyes you’re creating something you don’t want to fuck with no matter how meek and complying you think she is. A darkness is stirring that will swallow you both whole, but only one will make it out alive.

I’ve had my bones broken in many places and set them back together with the wisdom from my grandmothers loved back with the chaos I was born and taught to fear.
You can’t destroy a woman that is made of death that enjoys inflicting pain and sewing lips with whispered words of hate that she is made of. The misconception that you’re going to be some fucking nun when you rewild and come back to the woman you are is a fucking lie. You live the rawness of nature and the ferocity of your ancestors honour. Think before you try to smack a bitch down because she will rise with her people behind her.
When the fuck are cunts going to learn that we don’t break, we burn.
I ain’t going to pretty it up for the war thats comin.

Descent into the lower worlds

Her eyes are black, full of wisdom and spirit and endless opportunity to sink further and further with each question you’re intrigued to ask. Her hair is full of questions from those that got lost in her magnetism losing themselves in their own delusion of her, sacrificing their own peace for a slice of life that will never be their own. Seeing their future in her presence as the whispers of their own insecurities weaves the next thread of inner adventure coloured with distraction and anxious promises to what may never be.

Losing consciousness, her mouth moves slowly to sound out each word like you can’t hear. Spellbound, you follow her into the web she touches lightly and you feel it moving through parts of your body.
She smiles and touches one of the threads while giving you the look you know when life changes again.
‘Move like the serpent,’ as you feel your eyes heavy drawing you into shamanic worlds. Warm earth and bones with ancient markings tells you it’s time to dream only to wake in nothing but dark. Smoking herbs and the sound of rattle taking you further into the land between now and forever.

‘Look to the ocean when it’s dark, the answers are waiting for you there’ is what is etched on the cave wall and I read it on my stomach.

The Provocation of Darkness

Nothing will ever be a straight line when you’re claimed by the darkness, and that’s how we love it. We’re made for riding chaos till we know how to direct and stand in it. Loving the destruction for all the spontaneity and the transformative fire that it is. The feeling of pain is ecstatic in this depth when you can hold it with presence and let it reveal the ancestral wisdom beneath it all , for the love of mystery. No I never get sick of living what I’m lovin.

I had a conversation yesterday about the provocation of darkness in both it’s meanings. The feeling of desire that darkness entices but also evokes and it’s really this ecstatic energy of pure creational force when it’s on the edges of the unknown and however this spontaneous energy emerges into, the peak of risk and not knowing is enticing to those that have lived with trauma and know the feeling well of consistent uncertainty that feels almost desirable when it’s been trained to think it’s love. Though don’t we learn when we’ve repeated the same bullshit for long enough how those two feelings can be mistaken for the same experience, when it is and it isn’t. It is because it opens the same doorway to creation and mystery, but how it’s repeatedly opened is the issue. Is it because you are in control of your own chaos and know how to direct it to open more space for transformative healing, or are you doing it creating painful destructive experiences that open the same door to know but you never walk through it because you’re not walking your chaos with presence and understanding? Big fucking difference.

Most seduced by the darkness of witchcraft, don’t usually understand what they’re opening or what they’re seduced by believing the stereotype of what witch is not, and not understanding how vast that opening is. Where you’ll see some deep dive here and there, and/or chaos constantly showing up to strip the lies they’re choosing to live because this wildness we walk ain’t going to let you shit in the woods and call yourself a bear. It will kick you in the cunt over and over again whether you get it or not. You opened the door, now take responsibility basically. This is not a road to nowhere and everywhere that is half lived. It will ask for the very best of you, so all that childish cultural appropriation shit so many adults choosing to be distracted and let’s not forget disrespectful with, will keep them binded in one place circling their shit and believing they’re growing, ya know trickery. Being fucked by your own hidden fuckery growing the never ending thirst for real power that will never be if you’ve entered this with betraying your own self respect and lack there of for our mother.

This space where so many live their own tricks because they can’t see or transform what is needed to surrender to what they’re chasing and running from all at the same time. The depth of their own ancestral wisdom used against them. You know, the provocation and trickery of one’s own darkness.

The Smell of Bone Mother- moving with nature

I remember a time I was sitting at my desk working and I sensed the rattle of bone mother, of death. Acknowledging the presence, I kept working and stayed present with what I felt throughout the days, and sure enough I watched one ending happen after another. No resisting, just moving and navigating with what I felt and saw and open space to what is I needed to put to rest. It is a practice. It isn’t something we switch onto but through experience you cultivate a deep respect for death and the cutting wisdom and presence it offers, and as painful as it can be, it is what it is and resisting it only creates more pain, more anxiety, more rage and even desperation if you resist it for too long. Desperation to try and keep shit together the way it once was which only creates more chaos and destruction and will heighten anxiety where you feel you’re out of control as fear does when it’s constantly being fed. And don’t we all learn the fucking hard way.

Let’s not forget our friend grief. Grief is a potent doorway to knowing. It anchors us in our bodies and to the earth offering insight we may never receive without experiencing emotional heaviness. It pushes us to explore the deep, to cave and connect to wisdom that is hidden within the darkest places. Who we really are beneath the many layers of pain, and death our dear friend will highlight many losses so we can reclaim our real selves and take a hard fucking look at what we haven’t loved yet about the person we are, or even know about ourselves. The clean white bone truth can be painful but fucking liberating and freeing.

It opens infinite space and a feeling of safeness even though it may be painful and shit is all over the place but you’re grounded no matter how overwhelmed you’re feeling. That connection to knowing gives clarity within emotional chaos. It makes space to grieve and to acknowledge feelings. To be rooted with clarity because you’re moving with your knowing. That opens the channel to see clearly while standing in the aftermath of which pieces to pick up, and the opportunities that presents itself. Opportunities we may miss if we get lost in emotion and resisting to embrace and accept what no longer is.

It’s learning to practice to move with nature. Not all situations are going to be comfortable or pleasant, but practice being grounded lessens anxiety and strengthens trust in yourself which in turn strengthens knowing. That strengthening in knowing is fucking everything and is the real you. When we live who we really are, we move with the rhythm of nature, and that my loves is what I leave you with for now.

Incubation, dismantling bullshit & coming back to Earth

A kind reminder that this is a time to pull on all your ancestral practices and connect in. I understand the uncertainty and anxiety many are feeling and the survival mechanism it switches on. Feeling fear is healthy and a normal response when our survival is threatened, but I encourage you to minimise it as much as you can and challenge yourself to keep grounded and use your ancestral and creative practices.

Some of what I want to share is this. To encourage loves to look at things from a different perspective.

Many of us know we cannot sustain living on the planet the way we are. And many of us are passionate activists to dismantle the system that’s killing us all.

Around the time of the fires in Australia, I had a dream there was sickness coming. And I remember within the dream the sky turned pink for a while before it turned back to blue. The symbolism in that was to show me the fear, uncertainty and rage it will push up, and saw we will be enduring this incubation time for at least a good two to three months intensely then I saw the sky turning back to blue slowly. With that, I also saw it was one of the many challenges humans have to face if we continue to not change the way we live. That’s clear.

Look at it like this, an incubation period is also a period of transformation and growth if used correctly. Why I encourage you to challenge your fear and anxiety. Keep your ancestral practices up as the wisdom of our ancestors guides us through this time and use this time for introspection and creativity.

This is also a rattle to see with open eyes how humans are dependent on food from the corner store and not our gardens. To see and question your own dependency on the system and how you need to change this in your own world. How medicine and vitamins are vastly dependent on a plastic bottle in pill form and not from what we eat and the medicines we can use to heal ourselves from our bush lands and gardens. I’m not saying western medicine doesn’t have its place, but to see what you can change for yourself and family as we are directed back towards our earth. There’s no choice in this loves, it’s happening and destruction and death is where we grow,  to really put to rest the person we once were that feeds such a pattern to reclaim who we really are.
This is a much needed opportunity and learning to get back to the land and to the knowledge we know and knowledge we need to learn or relearn again to bring us back close to the earth. I encourage you to take this on board and make those changes that’s needed, that our Mother is kind enough to give us space and patience to once again get our shit together.
We need to see how we are making the earth sick, and we’ve had too many opportunities to see this and still so many look away. Most refused to see that before, but when we are faced with our own mortality and the consequences for deliberately choosing to not take responsibility this is one of the many ways we will learn.
Within that, there must be changes made though and not just riding out the worse and returning back to the usual bullshit. Think of this like as a dysfunctional behavioural pattern challenged to be changed, because that’s what it is. This is a time to put those changes into place permanently and make it a needed way to live.

Warrior energy is walked in more than one way, how that way is for you is different to what most may perceive warrior energy. I encourage you to your walk it. Stay grounded, connected. Be present with what you’re feeling and watch your denial, rage, grief and anxiety. Introspect, create, get that garden happening. Transform within your cave time and follow those preventive measures.

Will keep blogging through this time to share a little food for thought. Love to all. We’re made for these times. If you’re feeling challenged to ground check out this blog post: https://rootedinboneandwild.wordpress.com/2020/03/19/grounding-and-moving-shit-heres-a-bit-to-stay-centred/

Go Beneath the Chaos – grounding anxiety

So we spoke of shame the other day, let’s give fear and anxiety a little bit of a run cause some of you lovelies are just needing a kind reminder with grounding.

I understand it can be challenging for some to ground anxiety when collectively it feels uncertain and it seems like there’s no way to actually ground the fear when most people are feeling fear and noticeably anxious. So where to then? Seek the quiet and lots of it, focusing on the things you can do to pull your energy back to it’s centre and it’s usually the stuff that you love to do or is repetitious. For some the pattern is meditative because it feels safe. All of it is needed so you can  ground no matter how much you’re feeling and using that energy of fear in your creativity or just in the activities you do. Focusing on expressing from the pain or fear point, because not only does it ground you but it keeps you in the moment so you’re still connected to your knowing which is exactly what you want. Working with both threads is important and to not push down and dissociate from accepting feeling fear. Some survival responses are to not show fear which is usually a behaviour we’re taught and/or expected to take a ‘stronger’ stance for whatever reason, but people feel and sense, it’s better to be clear and honest than shit yourself in the quiet where you should be resting because it’s you loves I’m concerned about the most, so finding those safe expressions as a beginning to be honest with what you’re feeling for your own well being is a start. Small steps is everything.

I also understand the quiet can make some overthink and that’s why I say the above. Find the good shit that throws you in a space of surrender but you’re also expressing the emotion and energy that can be overwhelming. Take a load off your nervous system, so a fuck yes to creative expression or the garden, it doesn’t get better than nature.

And your people, be with your people the ones that are surfing on something similar to yourself, and do what you can for others without overwhelming yourself or saving fuckers. No to saving fuckers which can be a reactive behaviour for many women that have or still live the care taker role when they feel anxious. It’s really knowing your own space well and watch those slippery boundaries when feeling fear. Learn to stay conscious of your own anxieties.

Didn’t jump on here for a huge run down, just more of a kind reminder to ground. As I always say, go beneath the chaos.

Ancestral Healing: a little on unravelling Shame

Ancestral healing, a little on unravelling grief and shame because the two go hand in hand and when navigated with attention there’s three things to keep in mind to unravel the knot of the energy of a trauma wound, but also to give you clarity of what the source is so you can stand in it with knowing/power when it’s triggered again and again. And it will be and its to be expected. Wounding only lessens over time with love, presence and attention living from a place of power without dissociating from feeling it when it’s triggered each time. Most lose their footing is not paying attention when they are triggered. If you’re not paying attention to when you’re triggered, without a doubt you will fall straight back into old patterns of trauma wounds.

Healing, growing presence and reclaiming power around ancestral wounds isn’t something to ever be rushed, that comes from a place of anxiety and is a reaction from the pain itself to ‘hurry the healing’ so you can get to your ‘happy’ place and all will be well.

First, that’s unrealistic, second that’s dissociation which guarantees that you’re stuck in the behavioural and emotional pattern of the wound.
Slowly, everything should be done within your own rhythm. Slowly, shows you’re being present and loving with yourself and understanding that any step missed is a step back into your emotional pattern.

The other is, remember shame when you feel grief. They go hand in hand. The heaviness is not necessarily the pain and sadness, but the beliefs that keeps your energy contracted which is wrapped in shame.
Remember also to break down shame too, because within shame is rage, frustration, grief and anxiety- all emotion when we believe the beliefs connected to the trauma wound that we’re not enough.
It is these three things to be present with and makes unravelling shame much easier, also to understand why you’re feeling shame.

In a nutshell loves, because every ancestral wound is unique and individual to each person. How its navigated has its own pathway and has many layers to it.
If you’re ready to reclaim yourself woman, get in touch.

破坏 – Ancestral Witchcraft

An ancestral practice which we’ll call today 破坏 which translates to destroy or destroyer, is the art of domination, ‘soak up’ and transmute how you want the outcome to be for retribution.
It’s a craft that takes three solid years of practice and takes strong seer ability  using a specific techniques to be thrown back to the person or my favourite, to the ones they love and it devours slowly..
When your ability is strong you can see it through vision and dreams and includes anyone else that maybe involved and we’ll call this today 诅咒.

Then there’s, we’ll call it 混沌 which translates to chaos, when you foresee a person throwing hex or curse even before anything looks remotely like it could happen. As an example, you could be friends at the time and you put things in place before it happens. The trickery of witchery that I love.

There’s that, and then there’s 毒, to poison to death. Not always used with actual poisons which I won’t go into, but certain practices that will end a life or a life of someone the person who has thrown, loves…and there’s no hold backs to who that can be, age means fuck all. There is more than five practices all up within this one practice.

This is broad watered down to simplify to share the understanding that ancestral witchcraft isn’t candles, books of another’s experience, a fake image, narcissism, toxicity or a gathering of insecure white women playing dress ups and the hypocrisy of saying one thing and weeks later doing the opposite of what was said, shit talking. No truth or integrity.

As Bruce Lee says, showing off is a fools glory, if it makes you feel stronger by all means go ahead, but there’s people out there that take their craft seriously and have had enough of fucken fools.

The Dark

You may not like what you see when I take off my skin and show you the darkness of who I really am within the layers of perception that you choose to see through your own eyes. It’s not bad, and it’s not good, it is whoever I am in the blackness of this depth that is both life and death and everything in between.
.
.
This bullshit authenticity most speak, is riddled with insecurity to be the real difference they are. But what if I told you, the deeper you go you will exceed your own expectations of who you think you are and who think you will be. This ‘I love everyone’ shit isn’t truth. You can feel the love of the mystery and connection to all and be devoted to it because it’s what you are made of, but you don’t love everyone, because you don’t know everyone and there’s a lot of people that you won’t even like.
.
.
It’s not till you sit deep in the nothingness that is everything many many times will know who you are, and you’ll find it will confront many to be unapologetically raw and goodness has a fierceness and darkness that can be churned and it changes very quickly.
You become the very darkness you’re devoted to, this love affair with the mystery cannot and does not fit into an expectation of any box. It is the very essence of nature changeable, wild, feral and free.
I am not who you think I am.
.
.
Solstice love to all xx
