All wild animals that appear to us have a message, whether we hear it or not. This is the first time a Porcupine has ever appeared to me in its natural environment which in this picture, is Mt Agamenticus in York Maine.
At first I did not know what it was until I got closer to see its quills which are not a pleasant experience in our flesh. So I kept my distance which resulted in a grainy photo … but that is not the story.
The story is about listening to your Spirit Guidance and trusting that even when it may sound crazy, it is still a request for your action.
The day before, on a walk with my dog, I was guided to ask my two friends Elizabeth and Shelley to go to the top of Mt Agamenticus and connect with the energy there. As Elizabeth was only going to be here for one day before flying elsewhere.
So yesterday in the pouring rain two friends and I went to the mountain top to connect and honor the work that we do and our connection with each other.
It was a brief opportunity to be together and hold ceremony together in person as Council Members of LovingWaters
None of us knew what to expect yet trusted that it was an opportunity we should experience in spite of the rain.
Arriving at the top, we began to walk to the stone you see in the background to hold a brief ceremony of thanksgiving for being called there. It is the center stone of a circle of stones where Drum Circles are held and had been previously blessed with ceremony and crystals. The whole top of the mountain itself was just recently blessed with Rose Quartz in a Star Tetrahedron pattern.
As we approached the circle we found a large rainbow-colored umbrella laying on a picnic table. The 3 of us could fit under it and stay relatively dry from the rain while offering our prayers and heart resonance of thankfulness… for being together, being called there and being together.
So to return today and see the Porcupine was, for me, a confirmation of appreciation for our dedication and willingness to listen, even when our comfort zones were being stretched.
Alas the messages…
Porcupines aren’t really aggressive animals but have a youthful, childlike expression of life unless provoked.
Spirit is sending a message through Porcupine that is all about our trusting ourselves and having faith in our purposes here now on Earth.
It is showing us that our re-connection to our childlike self and innocence is key to what we are doing now. To do what we can… where we can… and leave the rest for those who can be more readily available.
Porcupine is representing strength and fearlessness which is essential for living in the now.
Reminding us that we are family and that kindness is the underlying energy of all of our actions while our external presence warns others to be cautionary.
Our take away from the mountain was a meaning which I can’t find right now but one I will summarize

Loving the Water
It is always a Joy for me to acknowledge Water in its many aspects and share my Love for it with others.
In my personal world I continue to clean up files and photos from an Artificial Intelligence breakdown, on not 1 but 2 of my computers, and try to let go of my attachment to having things where I expect them to be.
However… Water always reminds me that impermanence is not only a part of Life but it is also a transformation which is very simple, yet powerful when we are both “flexible and flowing”.
Our attachment to all that is around us at some point teaches us that we have to surrender to a greater understanding which is both elemental and Elemental.
Water Transforms Everything
I’m often reminded and say to others… Would you rather be a Rock in the River, or a Leaf on the River? To which each us may reply uniquely as to one or the other.
However, how much more beautiful and efficient it is to “Be The River”… from the first droplet of rain to the point of evaporation
in a living cycle that embraces all experiences without fear or complaint.
So please enjoy both of these pictures I call my Museography and allow both Lao Tzu and my Higher Self make you pause for a moment in reflection.
Being physical in this sometimes overly confusing world is challenging.
Yet to realize that from the drops of rain which begin in the skies to the great deep oceans there is guidance and wisdom for each of us in Water.
Blessings to All and please offer Blessings to the water in your area in honor of
Dr Masuro Emoto.
His simple blessing of I love You… I thank You… I respect you…
is enough to change the crystalline structure of water as he proved that
“human consciousness has an effect on the molecular structure of water.”
WAITAHA Water Prayer
Let my spirit, my deep mind travel
to the spaces in between the water patterns
Let my heartbeat echo the tinkle and bell sounds
of the water deep inside of my body
Let me hear the memories of the Gods and Goddesses
Let me hear the memories of the Angels, and Ancestors
Let me send my voice into every atom of water that is in me,
Water that is in front of me, behind me, around me, above me
Let all the forms of water hear my resonance in this time and forever
carry my blessings and wishes to the highest mountains, to the heavens
Then let all the living and the dying creatures and humans
hear the sounds of the joy of creation resonating
in every sentient form in this universe and others
to be the sound that sings forever and eternal
in the mind song of Creation
It is always a joy for me to be inspired and allow words to flow like the rivers upon which the Light dances. Especially, after a spell of dryness in which words were slow in coming and infrequent.
I arose at 4:27AM after a dream which presented me with my fears of not trusting my own Higher Self abilities. One in which I had given advice to someone and felt I would be judged as a fool if it was not perfectly correct. The ego mind wanting to sabotage my trust in anything other than what it can rationalize through its process of calculation.
Now I truly know why I never fit into the school system when I was a child. Fighting it tooth and nail until I was literally thrown out for non attendance. Disinterested in their lies and rules which were always some form of separation and competition. My Spirit was not one to be controlled for sure.
And so this morning I was called to listen to a replay of a ‘Good Of The Whole Community’, Monday Resonance Call on YouTube, actually for the first time.
The deep and respectful silence between each person, as they were speaking from their hearts, released these words in me and so I wrote them down knowing that such a gift had be shared…
In our simplicity
we find ourselves
embracing all of life
Our complexity directs
that we become
something other than that
When we sit quietly
and listen to the silence
it becomes a renewal
A re-gathering of Self
which cannot be found
without each other
All our confusion
dissipates when seen
through a discerning heart
And each of us
begin to harmonize
at levels beyond words
It was nice to have the Silence which has always whispered to me, speak once again as I listened to others expressing from that part of themselves which is Sacred and Whole.
May we all return to trusting the inner silence which the ego mind has been trained to keep us from experiencing…
Where Truth and Love are not hidden but revealed.
On the 31st of January the Loving Waters council and community in partnership with 7 Days of Rest invited all to a special gathering themed…
RISING IN SOLIDARITY FOR MOTHER EARTH
in deep resonance and honoring of “World Interfaith Harmony Week”
The World Interfaith Harmony Week was first proposed at the UN General Assembly on September 23, 2010 and which is observed and been continued since during the 1st week of February.
Loving Waters is a growing community of Water lovers, advocates and guardians uniting together in remembrance of our primary sacred relationship ~ Water as Life. As Water Guardians we celebrate our ONE Water as the source of all life on Earth. We are an educational community bringing broader awareness of our Water as an intelligent living organism to be respected and loved. Our vision is to globally inspire local communities into deeper conversations regarding our vital stewardship and guardian roles of caring for our world’s Water.
I as a Council Member share below the video recording of our gathering and invite you to check out our website to find out more about us… our mission and various projects which are deepening as we gently follow the water currents of our hearts.
As well we have a Facebook Page where you can stay informed of our ongoing energy of Love and Support for the Water as well as marvelous messages and others like yourself who are beginning to ask how can I help the water though peaceful and heart based communion.
We are usually physically gathering at the waters on the Full Moon for ceremony and an offering of our prayers/blessings and meet virtually on these Water-Heart-Wisdom calls on each New Moon, so this shows how we listen to the Water and respond in service to Her beautiful voice.
Below please find the link below to the recording on our YouTube page of this special gathering of water guardians who represent a worldwide and deep inner passion not only for Mother Earth but more specifically Grandmother Water without whom no life would exist.
As we begin our journey into the Year 2018 it is important to deepen our relationship with all water.
Let us begin by quietly dropping our attention into our Hearts.
(Which by the way is about 79% water)
and a magnificent electromagnetic generator
which sustains us in a toroidal field of energy
that is ready for all aspects of our daily physical lives
So this is our Heart, this is the physical process it goes through
but we are going to dive into the Water of our hearts
and learn and relate to more of the deeper spiritual level
So Let us… just relax…
Slowly breathe in the word Water…
and likewise let us slowly exhale the word Water…
inhaling and exhaling slowly
Relaxing, and trusting that in this small sacred circle
of Water Lovers and Guardians
we are a unified field of expanded conscious awareness
Vision yourself walking along a quiet wooded path
away from the hustle and turmoil of everyday existence
listening to the sounds around you change ever so slightly
from a brittle and jarring background noise
to a more rhythmic and gentle flowing orchestration
Listening attentively we walk further and further along
we begin to allow our pace to slow down
knowing that there is a place ahead
where we can sit by a small pond
which is fed by an ancient spring that never ceases
even in the most severe droughts of recorded memory
Relaxing deeper into our natural surroundings as we walk
we begin to feel the dampness in the air we breathe
the warmth of our bodies in motion
and a slight sense of thirst, which we know
will be quenched upon arrival at the springhead
As we continue along this path…
We see a clearing ahead through the trees
and slowly a small pond appears as if rising
from the heart of Mother Earth
almost as if it were an offering,
an offering to us, who are just arriving
Such a welcoming beauty and stillness to behold
as we gently sit on the hand hewn bench
placed so perfectly between the Spring and pond
sitting here, contemplating our arrival
we begin to hear raindrops
gently falling on the leaves above us
as if welcoming us to this Sacred gathering place
Recognize now the full embrace of Water
and hear Her sing so lovingly
a song of Passion for Life in all forms
Allow yourself now to slowly dissolve…
to dissolve into this large gently swirling pool of wetness
being fed warm water from the primordial spring below
while gathering from above, the randomly falling raindrops
this warm pond of Loving Water
much like the Womb Water which held us
and sustained our tiny fragile tiny bodies
and which sustains us in all levels of our existence
Allow yourself to rest peacefully there…
knowing you are safe…
you are home…
you are loved…
As We look up…
A Dolphin appears in the rain clouds and begins to lovingly deliver a message.
within your Creation Stories there has always been Water
You have always been One with Water
You arrived here on Earth via the Water
You are Water Beings living a human existence
Then diving from the clouds
into the water before you
the Dolphin disappears without so much as a ripple
Let us now just feel into this moment of unity
a sense of deep serenity and completion
the serenity of feeling a tension on arrival
yet opening to receive a sense of Grace
as we willingly immerse ourselves in the pond
Immersion is how it has always been done
and perhaps it is but a moment of recognition
where codes are given and identities exchanged
then in an instant the elation of acceptance
a welcoming and an overwhelming sense of completeness
Yes, we are so much more than just the containers for water,
or water guardians,
for We exist on many levels
as We are the Water itself without separation
Gently Feel into that suggestion…
Breath into it…
and allow yourself to surrender
to being water itself
Feel your perception of separation disappear
into a thought which has no value
This circle we began as a group of individuals is now one drop of water
There is no more separation
as we are that one whole drop of water
coming together in this moment of singularity
a tiny yet powerful presence of co-creation
in a pond which flows to become a stream,
perhaps a River, the Sea or the Ocean
all the while in a continued state of evaporation
in order to gather and rain again in another part of the Planet
Rest here now with your open Hearts
and receive the Blessings that Water offers to us
we never know from whence they may come
yet each of us can remember them…
tiny fractal moments
that remind us, of so much more
such beautiful living organisms
that without water, would not exist at all
When you are ready…
Gently feeling into our individual physical embodiment again
let us begin the journey of return
leaving the pond with a Blessing or an Offering of Gratitude
let us visit the Springhead to remind us that we too are primordial
that we are all Ancient Water Carriers
Eternally sailing the Star Waters
sometimes becoming a single drop
one tear on the cheek of an innocent child who is thirsty
and at others the raging floods which erase the footsteps
we have left behind
Yes, take a deep inhale and feel the Water
and a relaxing outbreath
and welcoming back
Take few a moments now to just settle back in and know that it has been a joy for me to be of service to you today…
I Love You – I Thank You – I Respect You
Blessings of Peace, Light and Love
