The Full Sturgeon Moon asks: What is your intuition telling you about your dreams?

Shinning, glimmering, reflecting
just below the surface
in the waters of deep knowing
something comes alive.

Notice, be aware,
pay attention.
What truth is there?
What message?
What wants to be born?

The red of the root,
bottom of the spine,
unconscious,
fierce sleeping power.
The enemy of ignorance.

Greatest joy,
natural pleasure,
delight in controlling passion,
and blissfulness in concentration.

Hands held in the Gyan mudra,
waking up the root,
grounding the practice,
calm, concentrated —
the heart opens.

Follow your path into teaching,
in your life and in the world.

Easy, effortless,
where the heart is,
exhale powerful healing,
strength and balance.

You’ve read the books,
write the books.
Grab your boots,
your pen, and your mat.
Write the world,
blood and breath are your ink.

#SmallStone: Day 20

Sleeping In, Waking up

Sometimes waking up is a really long process. When I said I was only staying in for a few minutes, I meant it. But when there’s someone else willing and able to feed the dogs, give Dexter his medicine, and when Sam comes back after he’s finished eating and cuddles next to me, warm and soft and so relaxed, listening to his breathing becomes a lullaby and a few minutes stretches into a few hours.
