Yesterday was the Summer Solstice. I had the privilege of participating in a powerful Solstice ceremony with a few other radiant souls and a very talented shaman named Kerry Jewel Koenig, The Indigo Crow. As we honored the Mothers of each direction of the Medicine Wheel, I felt the energies flow through with each, however, while we were honoring the South, the fire energies flowing through were so strong, I felt like I was going to be lifted right off the Earth! I knew right then and there, Fire was working through me most powerfully in my life as I chase the light! I have been drawn to participate more and more in situations that shine with the light of love and compassion for all beings in the past several years, slowly (and sometimes painfully!) emerging from the cocoon of introversion that I shrouded myself in for many years. I know this has been incubating in me for a long, long time. I had to figure who the hell I am! And I have felt increasingly drawn to the flame, just like my lovely friend, Moth. Moth has been around me for as long as I can remember and I am realizing what a long way I have come in integrating her message in my life, and I'm especially grateful she showed up this evening after the incredibly powerful Solstice ceremony to remind me of how far I've come on this journey.
(Rosy Maple moths [pictured at left] are varying shades of pink and yellow. Pink resonates with the High Heart or Thymus chakra which represents unconditional love and compassion, especially for humanity, and is associated with the element Fire. Yellow resonates with the Solar Plexus chakra and represents your personal power, identity, and confidence. While many modern practitioners associate the Solar Plexus with the element Air, it is traditionally associated with Fire, as the name 'Solar' Plexus would indicate. I'm telling you, I can't make this stuff up! Of all the moths to show up on my porch light this evening, I get the ONE that is vibrant pink and yellow!! I love the validating messages of the Universe!)
Moths chase the light. When one goes out, they seek the next, blindly following their intuition to seek the light. Light is the energy of unconditional love and compassion and don't we all want unconditional love and compassion in our lives?? This is the light I've been chasing for many years now. I grew up always feeling out of place, misunderstood, and pushed to the boundaries of acceptance by my peers which drove my true self deep down into the shadows. I had the most friends when I was pretending to be someone I wasn't, you know, to be cool, which only emphasized in me that who I really am is not who they wanted.
As I got older though, I realized that those people had fallen away, and the only one I had to be around all the time was me, and I didn't like the me I had become! So slowly, I began to change things. What lights me up? What sparks that fire in me? And I slowly started going after and integrating those things in my life that had gotten pushed down into the dark. It's been a lifelong journey for me to find out who I truly am, and I'm certainly not done yet! But I will say, it gets better all the time and that is directly attributable to the vibrant and illuminated souls I meet along the way, who not only accept and love me for who I am, but encourage to keep going along my path, and chase that light!
