Ohana of Earth

As I sit writing this, it is Earth Day, a day to specially appreciate and honor Mother Earth.  Her living body is our home, and provides for us everything we require.  Given the magnitude of that truth, many of us choose to honor her every day, and find we live a far more joyous life as a result of participating more consciously in the relationship.  In the spirit of celebrating our Oneness on this beautiful sphere, I am taking us back to my time in Hawaii earlier this year, when I hiked out into the Mauna Ulu lava field, letting the cairns lead the way…

After hiking awhile out over the lava rock, you reach Pu’uloa (a large hill) of petroglyphs left by ancient Hawaiians.  Many of the petroglyphs are hollowed out little round holes (pukas).  The native people would bring the umbilical cord (piko) of their baby out to this sacred site and place it in a puka.  Each puka houses a single child’s umbilical cord.  They believed that the mana (spiritual guiding energy) of Pu’uloa would bless their child and root them to their ancestral lands.  The Field of rooted connectedness to the Earth and to one’s family (ohana) is palpable here.  Take a moment to gaze at the picture and sense your rooted connectedness to Earth  & ohana…

We are all in various stages of awakening from the illusion of our separateness and living in a fractured state.  On this Earth Day, and every day, I pause to put aside whatever stories or dramas may seem to be playing out in my mind or on the world stage, and simply feel into and In-Joy the larger truth:  We are One Ohana…IMG_3870In Lak’ech*  ~  Denine

~ Magnolia Venus Elixir Flower Essence:  In my last post there is a picture of what I called a “pussywillow tree”; lol, it proved itself to be a White Magnolia Tree.  The fuzzy buds I admired back in Dec, opened up 2 days ago in their glorious display.CT MagnoliaThis Earth Day Magnolia Essence imparts a strong opening of the Crown Chakra to receive the inpouring of Light coming to support us now, on the heels of the Uranus/Pluto Squares and the powerful Spring Eclipses.  Like all Magnolias, her specialty is navigating major transitions (birth/death) in every sense of the word.  She is a sweet beacon of the holiness of this terrain.
