Shifting from Fear to Faith in the Midst of Adversity

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Shifting from Fear to Faith
in the Midst of Adversity
In a private FB group to which I belong I was deeply moved by a woman going through so many problems compiled by environmental disasters and tipped by the troublesome political climate to the point that –even when she had great faith, a faith I could feel deep in her core—she was feeling desperate, fragmented and gripped by fear for herself, her family and her community.
Let us call her Mary.
If you are going through multiple problems while feeling the pressure of these scary, troubled times getting to you so that you are losing your center of serenity, this is for you with love.
~~~~
Beautiful Mary, I feel the fear in you and I feel the faith in you. I send a prayer for you to shift from fear to faith with ease and grace.
As I hear you describing what is going on in your life –the adversity, disease, financial insecurity, compiled with environmental disasters in your region and overwhelming political transgressions to our democracy, I see a vision…
I’m seeing the adversity you describe. […]

Pillar Articles
Rewriting your Story

Story Alchemy™ is the process of using story and creativity to transmute the lead of lack, wounds and limitations into the gold of resourcefulness, personal power and possibilities.” Maria Mar

In the Pillar Article What is Story ALchemytm, you discovered that very early on in life you inherited or created Story Fields for almost every aspect of your life.
You learned that this Story Fields are just like the stories your mom told you when you were a child. They have the 5Ws: who, what, where, when and why. You understood that the reason why you are full of old hidden stories is because that’s the way your brain makes sense of and stores reality.
So you have hundreds of inherited Story Fields from your race, family, culture, nation and community and they are embedded in your psyche, influencing how you see and interpret the world now.
I hope that you remember that these are not just “story files” stored in a drawer in a dark corner of your mind. Bare in mind that once your mind decides that a Story […]

Prayer: I grow the distance

Reading Time: 1 minute

Prayer
I grow the distance
I look into the Sacred Mirrors
that Source provides
and see the hidden enemies within.
I face the Worthy Opponents
that Source provides
and summon my highest powers to triumph.
I walk the Sacred Roads
that Source provides.
I learn the lessons.
I grow the distance.

Requiem for a Tree

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Saturday Poem
Requiem for a Tree

 
It was as if it had never been there.
The ground was leveled,
so that no wound could be seen;
no gaping hole where it had once stood.
All the branches were surgically removed;
no stub left standing to give away the crime.
They thought that the job was finished.
The tree was no more.
But the Earth has memory.
They thought that once removed,
the tree was gone forever.
But the ferns that had grown under its shade
wilted and died of sorrow.
And the delicate flowers that had answered
the invitation of its shade
were now burnt by the merciless sun.
And the water that was kept on its leaves
now fell relentless, making puddles
and flooding other flower beds.
And soon the garden was no more.
 
They thought that once removed,
the tree was gone forever.
But creatures have memory.
The squirrels that played on its branches
grew restless and jumped into windows,
scared the neighbors
and were put to death.
The crows that did their covens
under its green temple
sought other places of reunion
and no longer cleaned the place of carrion,
so the stench grew.
The birds that flocked to the tree
to make my morning a glory
flipped their wings and circled in […]

Message from the Kogi, Keepers of the Earth

Reading Time: 4 minutes

In 1990 the Kogi came down from the Sierra Nevada in Northern Colombia to give us a warning. These native are Earth Keepers and have been taking care of the spiritual and physical health of the Earth for thousands of years.
They survived the Spanish invasion of their lands by keeping themselves isolated but in 1990 they told BBC-TV that  it was time to send a message to the Younger Brother, as they call the rest of the people.
I share the message they delivered then because the Kogis are back with new and graver warnings. They can no longer protect the earth by themselves. The mountain they inhabit, a micro-cosmos where they could observe all climates on earth, is now getting sick. The Kogi are warning that now only we can stop the damage, and the time window is closing.
They could see that something was wrong with their mountain, with the heart of the world. The snows had stopped falling and the rivers were not so full. If their mountain was ill then the whole world was in trouble.
“The unique structure […]
