Four Seasons

Living in the Present With the Four Seasons ~

Self-care and Personal Growth through Gifts from the Rainforest:

Four Seasons from Gifts from the Rainforest46. The Four Seasons – Each season reminds us to follow the natural cycles of birth, growth, decay and regeneration.

Are you worrying about the future or stuck in the past?

What would remedy that and help you live in the present?

Healing Action:  Pull yourself fully into the present. Open and close your fingers. Notice the time. Look around. Be in alignment with what is. Stand firm in the natural Circle of Life.


The Circle of Life

All of life follows a natural cycle of
birth, growth, decay and regeneration.
However, the critical mind becomes impatient and
wants to see immediate results.
It longs for the green of summer all year long.
The creatures of the rainforest
laugh because they know this is folly.
The plants cry because they know
the danger in this kind of thinking.
Allow the seasons to teach you
how to reconnect to the joy and fulfillment
that is available in each moment.
There is no time but now.
Bring yourself into harmony with what is.

Further Exploration into the Healing Circle of the Four Seasons:

Four Seasons

This Circle of Life beckons you to step into the simplicity of being here now. The mind thinks that doing so would be too difficult. Why is that?

Perhaps it fears the loss of control that comes with being open and receptive. After all, birth, death, and rebirth seem like scary things, yet if we cling to the ideal of endless youth, we’ill never taste the sweetness of maturity.

A fearful mind organizes itself around dissatisfaction and all the reasons why things couldn’t possibly work out. It loves to fixate on all the reasons not to do something rather than the benefits that could be reaped from moving forward. The fear of approaching winter causes it to hoard. It idealizes the birth of spring and yet resists the change that’s required. It makes up stories about how things would be so much better if others just conformed to their way of doing things. It likes to take snapshots. It doesn’t like the chaos of change.

The mind would be much happier if it would organize around the natural circle of life that accepts change and goes with it. Watch how the plants and animals handle this and you will come to understand that you can never go back to the way you were yesterday. Accept that you are constantly changing and adapt to natural law.

Monkey Medicine

Break the Spell with Monkey Medicine

Self-care and Personal Growth through Gifts from the Rainforest

Monkey Medicine from Gifts from the Rainforest

#28 Monkey – Monkey is presenting an opportunity to respond differently in the face of anger. Learn how to invest your energy more wisely. Life has so much more to offer!

Are you spending too much time fighting and finding fault with others? 

Are you being too hard on yourself? If so, what would you rather be doing?

Healing Action: Release damage done from negative group think, curses and holding grudges. The remedy for your problem lies within. Forgive your Self.


Angry Monkey

The angry mind is like an angry monkey.
It swings wildly from one tree to another,
casting coconuts and squealing curses at the top of its lungs.
The monkey-mind has often thoughtlessly
cast insults and stones on friends and enemies alike
whenever it has felt threatened.
Deflect the ill will of others by refusing to
take their threats personally.
Their curses are merely a reflection of how
they feel about themselves.
Cultivate humility when thinking ill of others.
Your curses are merely a reflection of how
you feel about yourself.
“Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.”
Vigilantly monitor your monkey mind.
How is it feeding you with poison?
Approach it with compassion, and nourish it
with the milk of human kindness.
Forgiveness begins within.

Further Exploration into Monkey Medicine:

Monkey Medicine

Monkey medicine speaks of the need to clear your mind of preconceived ideas and concepts that have been cursing your attempts to be peaceful and happy. Somewhere, an angry mind is dominating the situation.

As you gaze at the Circle, relax and ask your Soul: “Am I mad at myself?” “Is someone else mad at me?” “What am I afraid of?”

Monkey is showing us that embedded within every stone that’s cast against another is an opportunity to learn and respond differently. Redeem yourself first and a path will open that leads to forgiving others. Take that opportunity and your life will change forever.

Perhaps you’re being a projection to someone and they are seeing something in you that they don’t like about themselves. On the other hand, you may feel like others are throwing accusations or ridicule at you because that’s what you expect them to do.

Don’t fall for such a waste of your mental activity! Look deeper into your own insecurities. This may seem unpleasant at first, but there is a gift waiting for you if you’re willing to get to the bottom of this falsehood. Usually it involves letting go of an old way of thinking about yourself and the world.

The monkey may also be exposing an illusion that has been bedeviling you in this situation. See it for what it is. Break the spell that keeps you from being who you truly are. There is nothing to fear here unless you think there is. Once you can transcend this falsehood, a passageway that has previously been blocked will be ready for you to step through.

Gently coax your monkey mind out of the dark undergrowth of fear and resentment. Bring it into the light of day. Using Love and Forgiveness, encourage it to swing freely through the trees until it can travel to the very highest regions of the forest canopy with ease!

Shamans Leaves

Clear the Clutter Out of Your Mind with Shaman’s Leaves

Self-care and Personal Growth through Gifts from the Rainforest:

Shamans Leaves from Gifts from the Rainforest32. Shaman’s Leaves – when the mind goes into survival mode during a shamanic journey, it can pull progress to a complete stop. Shamans leaves are specially chosen to shake out resistance and fear that creeps in on the mental level.

The Shaman’s Leaves

On shamanic journeys, resistance is expected.
When this happens, the small mind
will think up every possible reason to give up
and retreat from your Soul’s journey.
The shaman then brings out his dried leaves
and shakes them in your face
for however long it takes
for the small mind to surrender.
These dried leaves contain yellow magic –
the courage to endure against all
manipulations of the mind.
See your fear for what it is.
Stay with it.
Endure.

Further Exploration into the Medicine of the Shaman’s Leaves:

You have decided that things are supposed to happen in a certain way and because of your limited thinking, you are about to give up. Don’t. 

  • If you can stop thinking so much and open to the possibility of different scenarios, the block can remove itself.
  • If you can open yourself up to new ideas the world will respond to you differently.
  • If you refuse, you remain chained to outmoded thoughts, habits and behaviors that will naturally lead to self-defeat and self-pity.
  • If you are waiting for a guarantee, you will just keep delaying the completion of your goal. 
  • If your mind is telling you that something should be happening in a certain way ask your heart: “According to who and how would they know?” 
  • If you don’t have much self-discipline, now is a good time to develop some. 
Shamans Leaves

It may also be time to stop trying to force something to work out and just trust the process. Nature has a way of righting things on its own; allow this to work for you.
Or
A recurring pattern of post-traumatic stress is obscuring your mind and making it hard to think clearly. Pent up energy needs to be released. Let the Circle help you slow down and take deep breaths. Use rhythmic motion, sound and visuals to heal the nervous system. Let yourself shake it out.
Or
Early childhood and/or cultural conditioning is blocking your spiritual connection. Take the pressure off of having to be a certain way. Doing the opposite of what you think you should do is often the cure. Clear the clutter, irrelevant information and cultural biases out of your mind. Get back in contact with your Soul.

Garden Medicine

Nurture Your Dreams with Garden Medicine

Self-care and Personal Growth through Gifts from the Rainforest

Garden Medicine from Gifts From the Rainforest#44 Garden Medicine – Look beyond fear-based thinking and return to the beauty and nourishment of Mother Earth’s garden. With her help, you can cultivate your ability to plant and grow your dreams that will in turn, support the Common Good.

Is your garden positioned properly to be prosperous? Is there something about it that isn’t right and needs to be tended?

Healing Action: Connect with the personal dream that lives in your heart and nourish it with Love and gratitude. Make sure you’re nourishing your own garden and not someone else’s. Live your dream and protect it.


The Sacred Garden

The gifts of Mother Earth are all around us
if only we have eyes to see.
This garden of life has nourished us throughout the ages
with oxygen, nutrients, sacred medicine,
and the sweet memory of how this planet could be.
The Earth’s beauty and life giving richness
has been stamped upon and pompously disregarded by the ego,
because it is afraid.
Afraid to find out that perhaps it isn’t
really all that important.
That perhaps, we might be just fine
if we all gave up trying to control each other and share instead.
Have you forgotten your own garden –
the one that lives in your heart?
It has always been there, waiting for your return
if only you have eyes to see.

Further Exploration into Garden Medicine:

It’s decision time – time to get off the fence. Your ego is filling you with fear, distractions, confusion and double talk. Even worse, it has you focusing on all your problems instead of your blessings. Release your fear by coming back to the simple wisdom of nature – cause and effect, giving and receiving, activity and rest. Each one naturally includes the other.
You may have turned away from your divinity and allowed your ego to call the shots. It’s time to take back your true nature by reclaiming your true hearts desire.
Did you lose heart when you bought into the egos idea that “the other man’s grass is always greener”?

Garden Medicine

To find out, gaze at the Circle and ask: “Am I satisfied with what I’ve got?”

If not, why not? Then ask: “Who told me I couldn’t have my true heart’s desire? Who said I wasn’t good enough?”

Perhaps you’re ready to release your agreement with whoever it was that put restrictions on what you can receive. Even better, release your agreement with dissatisfaction itself!
Accept that when things happen within you, they also happen in the world around you. That means when you come from a place of lack internally, you tend to create more lack externally. Stop putting restrictions on what you can receive.

Your personal dream needs care and nourishment. When you appreciate what you have, you cultivate a mindset of true prosperity that can be built upon without greed or avarice.

You are invited to use this Circle to help you visualize your personal garden where you can rest and nurture your dreams. While you’re there, remember the old adage, “…and as you sow, so shall you reap.”

Look at the Circle and ask your heart, “Am I in my own garden? If you aren’t, pull yourself back. If you are, look to see if the landscape could use some tending.

It’s time to have some fun. You’re taking things much too seriously. Have you thought about expressing yourself artistically? Dance, sing, have fun! Do this and you will have the power to inspire others to do the same.

Otter Medicine - Animal Totems
Otter Medicine

Developing a sense of humor will serve to lighten up the situation and your attitude. Calm down and recognize the truth about what’s going on. Things are not as bad as they seem. Most fun comes from doing things just for the sheer pleasure of doing them anyway. Take away the pressure, the have to’s, the should haves and second guessing.

Let otter give you a quick lesson in reciprocity. Gaze into the Circle and imagine him smiling back at you.
1) Use the Circle to gather up your energy.
2) Place your objective in the center of the Circle like a bull’s eye. Focus your attention and intention on actualizing your objective.
3) Next, send your energy directly to it.
4) Allow the energy of your intention to come back to you and keep that going for several cycles. Repeat the affirmation: “I am invested in my own wellbeing.”

Humor is most skillfully used when it calls attention to the misuse of creative power. You may have an opportunity to do so at this time. If you are unsure where the misuse is taking place, look into the Circle and ask your heart, “Am I fooling myself in this situation?” If the answer is yes, ask to be let in on the joke. If you are willing to learn how to roll with the punches, even have fun with them, you can regain your balance quickly.e universe will provide for you if you learn to trust others and yourself.
