Mountain Strength and Lion Hearted Love

…..ROAR!

 
The massiveness of the mountain in this image - bearing the blanket of snow as spectacular hues from the sun reflect its body - evokes a sense of impenetrable and immovable strength and stature. A mountain’s quiet, resolute immensity leaves us in awe and inspires us to reach for greater heights. Yet, it can also pose challenges.  The firm base of the mountain evolves to the narrower crest in its attempt to reach the sky. More daring individuals become enamoured by the peak and see it as something to conquer, although it can never truly be conquered. When the mountain feels threatened in some way or simply shrugs its shoulders, the strength exhibited can wreak havoc for all beings caught on its skin.    It makes no sense to deny the strength you have at the cost of allowing yourself to be reactive and subject to external influences far beyond what is healthy for you. Imagine yourself as a mountain of strength, solidly ground in the Earth, your head held high as if you were touching the sky. Do so without straining, just as the mountain itself does not strain.   - “  Mountain Strength” from Earth Magic Oracle Cards by Steven D. Farmer, PH.D

Dear Wise Women,

Wow, did we cover the whole spectrum of the human experience yesterday! Belly laughter, honest expressions of pain, shared celebrations of love and success…ALL underscored by the essence of pure authenticity!

I encourage you to continue to explore the sensation of BE-ing the unshakable mountain (and/or bamboo). The power of this simple visualization cannot be underestimated! While being this mountain strength, consciously practice bowing down to your conditioned defences and those of others - another practice that is powerful beyond measure.

I love you all to the moon and back!

May you slowly savour Pamela’s words in your own copy of her book and may they help you to you ground deep into the sub-stratum, draw up the earth energy and reach for the sky as your true nature of unshakable strength!
