All the Hemispheres

Leave the familiar for a while.
Let your senses and bodies stretch out

Like a welcomed season
Onto the meadow and shores and hills.

Open up to the Roof.
Make a new watermark on your excitement
And love.

Like a blooming night flower,
Bestow your vital fragrance of happiness
And giving
Upon our intimate assembly.

Change rooms in your mind for a day.

All the hemispheres in existence
Lie beside an equator
In your heart.

Greet Yourself
In your thousand other forms
As you mount the hidden tide and travel
Back home.

All the hemispheres in heaven
Are sitting around a fire

While stitching themselves together
Into the Great Circle inside of

"I am showing up in this community as a sacred space holder - as a midwife for the deep and labor-like releasing required to clear the pathway to Spirit. I am here to open up communications between you and your spiritkin - the guides and helpers who are ready and waiting to meet you in between dimensions, where your more mystical insights can be found. I bring a deep trust of women, infinite compassion for authentic process & an unwillingness to validate the loitering darkness. I carry to the fire tremendous faith that the Guides always come when called."

"I believe in the goodness of others and of life, and in seeking beauty and truth and fun and unity and extreme bravery, and when I can't find it...I believe in going out and creating it. I believe in doing difficult things as joyfully as possible. I believe everything we need most and will bring the most joy into our lives is usually right in front of our faces. I believe in family. I believe in unconditional true love. I believe that East or West, home is best. I believe in sharing anything and everything that may be of value to someone else. I believe in creating the things that I seek but cannot find. I believe in goodness. It is everywhere."

I am someone who believes in the greatest of all possibilities.

I am here to encourage and support all of this - to whisper directly to your heart, "You can do it."
