The year has four turning points representing four different changes of direction and focus in the human path. We have just finished the summer with its out-going warm energy manifesting into nature.
Approaching winter and the most introverted time, we now are at the meeting point, the autumnal equinox. Standing here between light and darkness we can prepare for the darker and colder times. This is the time of the celebration of the archangel Michael, Mikaeli, St Michaels.
Michael is a Hebrew name meaning Like God or The like of God, Gods simillimum, and analogy to God. In Kabbalah Michael is related to Tipheret the sphere of the Sun and the cultivation of virtues.
It is through the challenges of ”dark times” that we become strong and full of virtue. It is by aspiring to become ”like God” that we cultivate virtues.
Entering the dark season, this is a time to be vigilant like St. Michael or St. George. It is a time to challenge the dragon or animal within. The animal represents the unaware or undeveloped part of our awareness, the unconscious realm of darkness. Ask yourself what you need to confront, what you are afraid of or avoiding? Within that “mud” there is a radiant gemstone.
It is time to find the strength, the internal sword so we can approach the weakness with courage, with love and with light. Remember the pain of the soul is the soul growing. One day you will crack open with your own light, love and life manifesting your virtues.
Farwell to this sunny nice summer!Now I am feeling full of warmth and ready for the challenges of the cold season.
After almost two years of extraordinary measures, so many people and their immunity-systems have been deprived of their natural exposure to virus and bacteria. To be fit your muscles need friction, to keep your mind sharp you need to use it, to have a strong immunity-system it also needs to be used and challenged.
What can you do to be prepared for the seasonal flu and the autumn and winter colds?
Keep your body warm
• Be physically active
• End the shower with cold water
• Walk bare feet in the morning grass
• Eat spicy and have warm meals
Winter is hibernation
• Get extra sleep
• Take more time to rest • Meditate and contemplate,
This day is unique and special in many ways. It is the feastday of St. Mary Magdalene. The woman so close to Jesus. Representing the spiritual potential in women as the anima of Jesus. The spiritual love incarnated into Jesus´ female counterpart.
This day is also in Norway, the day we remember the 77 people that lost their lives to terror. Norway was wounded, we all felt the chock and the pain. But as important is it to remember that we did not meet hate with hate but with roses and love. People initiated a spiritual reaction of protecting democracy, being able to feel safe, peace and love towards all people. Oslo was over flooded with people and roses the following days. This connected the nation in peaceful love in a unique way, that created ripples of love as a way to peace throughout the planet.
This day is also a very personal day for me, it is the day I married the love of my life. The woman that holds eternity to my soul, the woman that heals and makes me whole. The woman that shares my life for better and for worse, transforming it with love giving me inner peace.
22/7 is the closest we can write the essence of a circle as a fraction. A circle of eternity, the circle of the sun, the circle of the eye or iris the rainbow.
The week before the terror our daughter made drawing after drawing of windows that broke and fell down on the street or of rainbows. Only those two things! And she was worried for us, that the broken glass would kill us. We tried to secure her she did not need to worry, but she was hard to convince. No surprise because she knew what was coming and we were supposed to be close to the bomb. Destiny changed our plans that day.
I did also a blinded experiment of the fractions of glass and fallen rose leaves that were all over Oslo on the streets. I collected them in a big circle around the centre of the bomb explosion. The experiments also revealed bridges or rainbows between people or groups of different opinions. The message of connection and love regardless, was clear.
Love as unconditional positive regard, the rainbow as a circle that represents a higher whole a bigger holonity. Connected in love.
We were blessed this day with a sacred concert of peace performed in our garden. With a sword turned into a musical instrument. What a nice way to initiate this day.
A few times in my life I have encountered a book that becomes a gem and treasure like a piece of art. One such book was recently given to me: Seven Archangels, rhythms of inspiration in the history of culture and nature
