By Bill Arena

Our WORLD, our PLANET, our COUNTRY, our PEOPLE . . . ALL OF US of all ages, backgrounds, nationalities, health levels, economic status, race, sexual orientation, political leanings, literally EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US . . . is undergoing a massive energetic shift and cosmic reboot during these difficult days of pandemic, racial strife, political power shifts, and energetic resurgence here on beautiful Mother Earth. 
 
 
 
 
MERCURY RETROGRADE
OK, adding even more fuel to this crazy energetic bonfire, Mercury Retrograde begins today.. During this 3-week cycle, it's the perfect time to go within, quiet the mind, and take time to reflect, retreat and renew ourselves to our path of enlightenment and reinforce our gratitude for being here right now.
 
 
 
 
POWER OF GRATITUDE __ Each of us is empowered and encouraged to quiet the mind, go within, and listen to our sacred divine guidance. A few of the powerful, effective, spiritual methods of connecting with the divine include: 
 
 
 
 
🌎  Prayer & Meditation
🌎  Connecting with friends
🌎  Reading
🌎  Walking a Labyrinth
🌎  Communing with Mother Nature
🌎  Personal Gratitude practice
🌎  Singing & Music
🌎  Sculpting & Painting
🌎  Hanbleceya / Vision Quest
🌎  Daydreaming
🌎  Talking with an Elder
🌎  Being in the Moment
 
 
 
 
REFLECT, RETREAT, RENEW __ As we joyously embrace the energy of our world undergoing life-changing rebirth and transformation, let us savor each moment, go within, turn off the intellect and our over-stimulated, fear-based thought processes, get quiet, and listen to our own personal divine guidance. The answers are within. All we have to do is listen.. Mitakuye oyasin (Lakota) / ALL my relations. We're all in this together.

TECHNIQUES FOR GROUNDING OURSELVES & SACRED CONNECTION 

Connect with ourselves.

Connect with Mother Earth
(ground and send love)

Connect with Heaven and our personal spiritual team.

Connect with Humanity.
 
 
 
 
Re-new this connection at the start and end of each day.  

Re-invoke anytime you would like a boost to that connection.

 
 
 
 

LOVE PEACE HARMONY


One practice to connect with Humanity is to chant this song:

Song of Love Peace and Harmony.

The best way to chant is from our heart.


I love my heart and soul (offering love to myself)

I love all Humanity (offering love to 7+ billion people)

Join hearts and souls together (deepening our connection)

Love, Peace and Harmony

Love, Peace and Harmony

(affirming the nature of our shared connection)

 
 
 
 

This week's tip will be more fully explored in our Gratitude Circle meetings Mondays and Wednesdays. Come join us WHEREVER YOU ARE.

WORLD PEACE & PRAYER DAY __ This Sunday, June 21, the Summer Solstice . . . a perfect time to demonstrate our gratitude for this life, for all living beings, to connect with everyone around the world in prayer for world peace and healing and enlightenment. Message from Lakota Chief Arvol Looking Horse, keeper of the Sacred C’anunpa.
