Dakini Training
Morning Pages… Sunday August 15, 2010 9:26am
Readying for Woodstock

Eat right, Clean 1) alter; 2) crystals 3) wash
Emphasize beauty, grace, strength, compassion, mystery of woman. Power.
Dreams? I think I feel, in my dreams, that men forget me too easily (some men) =
improve detachment factor while remaining open-hearted for the pure sake of giving.
Be with my mother kindly.

With my current primary essences, I’m focusing on:
1) Explorer’s Gentian (FES Range of Light): Bright open new-pathways to dakini energy.

2) Pretty Face (FES): towards greater ease, flow, flower and ability to be outside the self more. Confidence in inner and outer beauty for spiritual evolution.

3) Spectrolite (Alaskan Gem Elixir) and Northern Lights (Alaskan environmental essence): Carry the vibration and range of full spectrum color/light (as the Northern Lights dance in the sky like angels) to deeply feed cells, to rainbow our insides to experience the magical sparking qualities of the full “mandala” – through the creation, projection and radiation of bliss.

4) Madonna Lily (Julia Graves Green Tara essence): for greace. To be aware of strengthen grace in my life and thereby the entire mandala, to be graceful, full or grace, refined female spiritual consciousness

5) Blueberry Pollen (Alaskan pollen/flower essence): for radiant, easy, flowing abundance in all good things in life, non-grasping, in the Big Flow

1) I am filled with sparking radiant creative energy and beauty.
2) All I want and need flows easily and naturally to me, for the benefit of All.
3) I am open to exploring new paths of energy on all levels. My energy is ever self-cleansing, self-renewing and joyfully, healthily exciting.

Days Aspirations: Work, proposal into Integral Yoga Institute for December teaching, fine-tune all apprenticeship programs.

A drift. Where to take. Today? Break free of inertia. For me, so much, too much! depends on the weather. Iffy, humid, grey with showers today but not too bad. Not good enough for Astoria Park.
I feel stuck. Longing to initiate some new skill, learning, teaching, glamorous adventures and routines. Started taking Explorer’s Gentian today, newborn day of the eighth month, Leo (so far I’ve decided no tv today). Desiring to wake and explore – not just do the laundry.
Where is my “talent” in this time? When do I? and how? and where? break free? And then there is simply, spiritually, accepting the mountain (I’m stuck up on), until the next “spring” thaw? (I’ve passed through several springs up here on my mountain top though. Is this good or bad?) My relative inertia must be “relaxed” “ventilated” - the beauty and power of this time be evident in everything; the lsd of the mundane encouraged. Gentle, be gentle with your views, blissful warrior, I tell me. Yet firm enough with the tensions of my spirit so I don’t hate day’s end (from lack of personal “productivity”). I feel at a loss as to where to direct my energy for the “good”. My good? Greater good? The same. Should I do the laundry? Eat a peach?
So….now….. I turned my phone back on and put the wash in spinning. From whence will come adventure? Thank you, holy Spirit in all things, for my blessed home and family and beauty and friends and Creative Spirit.
I have a whole “free” day. I want to experience freedom as open and thrilling and on the verge of authentic adventure – not a burden to withstand. We create our own reality. Do I need to pay an astrologer to advise me how to move$ Or why I’m not? Or can I pull myself together to just move? Move where? How much will it cost? Will I like the bathrooms? Can I come home whenever I want to? Are there enough toilets- and gutters to catch the rain? What’s the “highest” move? Shouldn’t I be creating more work? money? men? compassion? fashion? news? excitement? PEACE! Shouldn’t I be creating more play?
Of its own accord, will so much change tomorrow that I will already, yet to come, long for the freedom of today, which then will be in the past? Or have I had enough of this relative freedom and create some fences, borders - steppings out towards connectivity and bounds?
- I am filled with radiant creative energy and beauty.
- All I want and need comes easily and naturally to me.
- I love myself (and you) and each day is a holy gift
wherever, whenever, however…
the Goddess lives.
