LOVE>fear by Heather Neary

Dearest Compadres,

I AM so very grateful for the outpouring of love and support from this incredible community. As grief and transition are aspects of the universal human experience, being in the throes of it can be an opportunity to be blessed with the knowing of how bonded we all truly are. Today, many of our Brothers and Sisters across the globe are experiencing tremendous loss and devastation. As we hold them in our hearts, let us choose to perceive the events unfolding in our world from a space of love and trust. As we are birthing the New Earth, the old structures are falling away. The darkness of fear and separation are being purged out of our reality. In times like these, we must call upon the courage and mightiness of the inner Spiritual Warrior/ Warrioress to stay grounded in the truth of Oneness. Remember that we are in the midst of the power surge of an Eclipse portal. Tomorrow, Wednesday, March 23rd, is the Libra Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse. Our beloved Mother Earth, Divine Masculine Sun and Divine Feminine Moon are coming into alignment. Each one of us are being called upon to do the same. Stay committed to your path of awakening. Know that you are exactly where you are meant to be. Remember that YOU have unique and precious gifts to share with the world. We are ALL teachers, healers, and beloved children of the Universe. BE LOVE for that is what you ARE. 

May ALL BEings BE liberated. May ALL BEings BE joyful. May ALL BEings BE prosperous. May ALL BEings BE united. And so it is....

 

In ONE LOVE,

Heather
 

A Call to Hearts by Heather Neary

Dearest Compadres,

As some of you are aware, a beloved member of my four-legged family, Luna Kitty, transitioned this past Friday night. Saying goodbye to the physical form of a loved one is always painful. Luna's transition was very sudden and traumatic and continues to be a profound initiatory journey for Jen and I. Many of you have probably crossed paths with Luna during your visits to the Sanctuary. She was a tiny tuxedo cat with a HUGE presence. She carried quite a bit of jaguar medicine and was a protector of the land. Jen and I adopted her as a baby kitten from the Humane Society 6 1/2 years ago. I feel that our animal companions choose us, and this was certainly true with Luna. She was overjoyed when we heeded her call to adopt her. It was as if she recognized us. It felt as if we had known each other before and perhaps made an agreement to find each other in this life. Therefore, I trust we will know each other again. Over the past 72 hours, I have been riding the tsunami waves of heart-wrenching grief, while experiencing moments of peace in feeling her presence in a way that can only be felt when a soul is liberated from the world of form. I know many of you have been walking this grief journey yourselves and I take comfort in how our hearts are connected in this most sacred way. Even in our darkest hours, we are never, ever alone. 

True to our transcendent connection with Luna, today Jen and I received news that we have been waiting on for several weeks. As of the end of April, Jen will be reporting for active duty Coast Guard in Corpus Christi. Serving others through the Coast Guard has been a calling of Jen's for most of her life and finally the stars have aligned for her to fulfill this dharma. These orders are what we have been praying for, and I have said more than once today that I feel Luna had a paw in their manifestation. We are still working out all the details, yet it is safe to say that I will be traveling back and forth between the Serrano Trail Sanctuary and a casita by Mother Ocean, whom I adore. Of course this means transition and transformation for A Path to Gnosis also, and I trust that all is in Divine alignment , as it always is. 


Speaking of transformation, tomorrow is the opening of our Spring Eclipse portal with a Super New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Pisces at 7:54 P.M. CST. I have been writing about Eclipses for years now, thus many of you are aware that this is a POWER-FILLED time! This is a time for committing to the alignment of mind/heart/and will just as the sun/moon/and earth are coming into alignment. BE clear of your intents for your life and BE willing to fearlessly follow through with them. Our beloved 13 Moon Dreamspell map of synchronicity is in the flow of this energy, for we moved in to the Solar Moon of Intention today and begin the 13 day cycle of the Blue Storm 'World-Changer' power of self-generation tomorrow. BE mindful to stay grounded and connected with Mother Earth and choose to stay within your heart no matter what might be going on in the 'outside' world. If your spiritual practice has taken a back seat to other tasks, this would be an important time to place it at the forefront of your daily experience. It is easy to become derailed and rattled when the energies are heightened like they are with Eclipses. Remember that eclipses come in pairs, so this truly is an opening. This energy will be present with us for most of this moon/month.

 It is no coincidence that both our city-wide movement to raise funds for non-profits, Amplify Austin, AND International Women's Day both are occurring at the threshold of this Cosmic event. I recently learned that there is a world-wide gathering of circles of women in honor of International Women's Day tomorrow. This is an affirmation of the reclaiming of the Feminine that is BEing birthed within humanity; a most sacred and necessary step in our evolution.
To learn more, please visit: http://www.internationalwomensday.comIn honor of Luna Kitty and all the beloved four-leggeds, please join us in a very special Spring Equinox celebration on Saturday, March 19th (Kin 90 White Crystal Dog) at 4 p.m. at Yard Bar, 6700 Burnet Rd. Canine companions are welcome! Go to Yard Bar's website for dog park rules: http://www.yardbar.com. We will be honoring our connection to all of creation, especially our four-legged brethren, with the rebirth of Spring! We will have a special blessing of our animals and an opportunity to create a memory rock that will be placed in Luna's memorial garden at the Sanctuary. Please donate to the Austin Humane Society (http://www.austinhumanesociety.org ) or your favorite animal non-profit or bring food, toys, blankets, etc to the event and we will drop them off at the shelter. Our four-legged friends are SO grateful!

 

RIP Beautiful Luna Kitty

 


May ALL BEings BE liberated. May ALL BEings BE joyful. May ALL BEings BE prosperous. May ALL BEings BE united. And so it is...

In ONE Love,

Living the Dream by Heather Neary

Dearest Compadres,

Last Saturday evening, I had the pleasure of crossing paths with a young social worker, fresh out of grad school who has just begun a new position at a non profit called Hope for the Warriors. I was aware that the moon had become full in Leo practically minutes before we met, thus I was especially intrigued as to what this Being had to teach me. As he was sharing about how this organization's mission is to support post 9/11 Warriors in healing PTSD and reintegrating back in to society, I felt the power of this mission reach back in time to 52 years ago, when the Vietnam War had been raging for several years, with several more to go before it would end and the Warriors would return home. 52 years ago, we were not equipped within our consciousness to support and honor the difficult path these Warriors continued to tread, long after they left the battlefield. Yet, now we do. This is evidence of the sanctity of cycles and the potential to harness the wisdom that comes from our collective human journey. Within the ancient Maya tradition, the cycle of 52 years denotes a coming of age, a rebirth, and new beginning. The 52 is a marriage of the sacred patterns of 4 and 13 and crowns a Being or in this case, the collective, as an 'elder' or wise One. Of course, how we choose to embrace and embody that wisdom is up to each of us... As I parted ways with my new friend, I was called to send blessings through time and space to 52 years from now, imagining that then, war and all illusions of separateness will be a distant memory... 

Curious to learn more about the power of the 52 year cycle and how to embody the collective wisdom available to us today? Join me for an informative and enlightening journey exploring the profound events of 1963/1964, that have shaped where we are in this very moment in time! The 'Living the Dream' gathering is on Saturday, February 6th, from 2-5 p.m. and will include an opportunity for heart-centered discussion, creative expression, and meditation, all with the intent of consciously embracing the responsibility AND opportunity that is upon us! $44 investment/ reserve your space at: http://mkt.com/a-path-to-gnosis/living-the-dream-exploring-how-the-seeds-of-are-flowering-today

 May ALL BEings BE well. May ALL BEings BE joyful. May ALL BEings BE at peace. And so it is...

 

In ONE Love,

Heather

Let's Give 2016 a Proper Hello by Heather Neary

Dearest Compadres,

 

It's incredible to believe that we said goodbye to 2015. I realize that several of us are breathing a huge sigh of relief, for this has most certainly been a year full of extreme trials and painful transitions. I know that in releasing this cycle of 2015, many have let go of jobs, homes, relationships, and the physical forms of loved ones. I imagine that there were moments, perhaps countless, where you wondered if you could survive the changes that you were presented with. I imagine that there were moments, perhaps days, weeks, or months, that you asked yourself if all the struggle was worth it. Yet, here you are. You survived. You put one foot in front of the other and navigated your way through some of the most profound initiations a BEing can go through. And I can say with the utmost certainty that you are wiser for it. Whether you fully realize it or not, you have a deeper understanding of yourSelf and the mysteries of the Universe than you did a year ago. Your wisdom and gnosis will only continue to expand as time goes on, and that is a treasure that is invaluable, and something that nothing and no one can ever take away from you. However you choose to celebrate this New Year, please create space to reflect upon what you have learned from this cycle. If there is something that you would like to leave behind with 2015- fear, self-doubt, scarcity, resentment-BE willing to LET IT GO. Where you are headed, you don't need it anymore. Writing it down and burning it is a very powerful ritual. Burying the ashes or putting them into a body of water is a sacred way of honoring our connection with Mother Earth, the elementals, and the rhythm of cycles that flow throughout creation. 

 

 

I invite us all to throw-out the old 'resolutions' and 'goals' and consciously embrace our power of intent. Intent is an empowering, high-vibrational process. Resolution has a much denser energy and is often associated with self-criticism and punishment for being 'bad' the year before or doing something 'wrong'. Feel into what you truly desire for yourSelf in this new cycle. What feels exciting and joyous? What would be nourishment for your body, mind, and Soul? In choosing language for your intents, I encourage you to begin each one with 'I AM'. Connect with this process as if it is already happening, because it IS! You may even feel called to create a visual representation of this through a vision board, painting, or altar. Usher in 2016 with intents that are uplifting and inspiring! Dream BIG!!!

 

 

 

In ONE Love,

Heather
