Awaken

A still quiet voice inside calls to you: Awaken to your true self! Feel your body and your connection to the Earth. Know your mind and your connection to the Cosmos. Experience the depths of your emotions and connections with each other. Let me help you awaken to heal Welcome, to my blog! Here you will find stories of my journey of awakening. I am still very much on that journey, but perhaps there are ways that I’ve walked that are still new to you and perhaps there is some part of my experience that can help make your walking easier. I write about art, healing, plants as medicine, food and friends, moments of connection and disconnection, energetic transmissions, inspiration and revelation, religious and spiritual experiences and bees. If there is anything you read that resonates and  inspires you, I am grateful. If it sparks a desire to delve deeper into your own growth or you have a question you want answered, please contact me. It is my heartfelt desire to support you. Blessings, Catherine Advertisements

imagine yourself …

Imagine yourself standing in a clearing. Green grass, soft moss under your feet. A circle of trees around you. Comforting, protecting, watching over you. Breathe deep, inhaling the sweet smell of forest, the life from all around you. You may notice some familiar trees nearby, Cedar, Maple, Hawthorne, Doug Fir or perhaps others you have no name for, but they feel like kin. A little closer are the flowers and bushes surrounding you, gently merging with the edge of the clearing. Imagine you can see the roots from the tall trees, the shrubs, the flowers and grass all growing down and out, entwined with each other and the fugal micelium that connects them all. You too are connected.  You may not have physical roots, but your energy comes out in lines and waves, like little rootlets all around you. Bigger ‘roots’ extend from your palms, the soles of your feet the tip of your spine, the top of your head, those energy centers throughout your body refered to as chakras. Tune into them now, feel …

Comfrey root poltice is messy

I find myself, for the second night in a row, in front of the mirror with a bowl of brown slime and a roll of Saran wrap. This time the brown slime is less chunky, but my fingers are much more tingly from handling it for a long time. A week ago I fell ice skating, yes in July. I dislocated my right shoulder. This is an old chronic weak point, though it had been almost 9 years since the last time it happened. If it weren’t for the lovely and kind Dr. Judith Boothby, my chiropractor, bailing me out on a Sunday, I’m sure I’d be in much worse shape. But as it is I have very little pain and a fair about of mobility. Still the job remains to rebuild all this torn tissue and hopefully stronger and more aligned than the last time. So I get to experiment on myself with herbs and other magic. The first week it was mostly Arnica; internal, external, homeopathic, oil, homemade tincture and lots of ice …

Suddenly realizing the world is not just for us

At this threshold, we are as children, suddenly realizing that the world is not just for us. We realize that there are other consciousnesses around us, interacting with us. – Chiron, Healing Body and Soul – Martin Lass I had a conversation with my 7 year old daughter recently about how it effects the people around her when she is particularly dramatic in expressing her hurt or upset. She first pushed for the importance of her right to express her feelings and then she acknowledged how that could be scary or upsetting for someone near her. I could see her little mind struggling with the paradox of her need for the space to express and another being’s need for the space not to be expressed upon. Her deeply compassionate nature struggled with her robust sense of self worth. This dance of the inner and outer world is such a big part of being alive with other people. To know I am worthy of everything I want, and so are you. To feel the connection of …
