THESE DARK DAYS ARE THE MOST WORTHY OF OUR FOCUS AND ATTENTION.

SMOKED FILLED SKIES, SCORCHED FORESTS, DECIMATED COAST LINES, ARE OF PROPHETIC IMPORTANCE, A SOLEMN INVITATION FOR US TO FIND the WAY ONTO A PATH THAT helps us to HEAL our WOUNDED PLANET. GAIA, THE DARK- IS SACRED FEMININE EARTH ENERGY THAT brings to women ancient wisdom and guidance that has danced across TECTONIC PLATES OF COLLECTIVE TRAUMA AND resilience since before time became a concept.  THOSE WHO INVOKE Gaia, The Dark are blessed with THE knowledge and SKILLS needed for WARRIOR-ING UP.

The Greatest turn is just ahead 

It is into a story that is rich with a flourishing ache that bends and breaks at moments beyond your understanding or control. This tale reaches beyond two-dimensional sensory understanding by transmitting to us; a truth that once translated to us pulls into an earthly cosmology. This non-lingual language aids us in perceiving the forceful body through which we are bound to the world and all its creatures.

It is time to build our home in this place.

But we must first arrive. And to arrive is first to journey across a great many terrains. The heavy weight of the commonplace must still be born upon the body we were given.

The chances are you were heading in the opposite direction of where this story is going. But this account is not by time, it does not keep its course to the tick of a clock. But Gaia will keep spinning around the sun and the Moon will continue to cast her shadow along her night filled fields of dreams.

There is but a few entries to the core source of Gaia but there are many to her numinousness. 

Doorways avail themselves like a soft breath over trembling lips. Do we have the depth of mind and opening of heart to slip in? All we can perceive, at this point, is the darkness of hard terrain. But having reach this far, this no longer scares you.  

You now know that you do not have to slip off your many masks but all you need to do is dance them off as you did as a child. Each step will take you deeper into the underground forest of your initiation of Gaia.

And when you arrive, you become the warrior she needs you to be.

There are many faces of Gaia. Also known as Mother Earth, the telling of her creation by Indigenous Nations often begins with the idea that She was created in such a way to nourish and sustain life equally for all life.

For millions of years the balance of life Mother Earth was tasked to uphold remained true and steady on it's course. She continued to breath life into new forms of life, communities of self-organized humans who gathered close together across her great plains so as to build new forms of living. 

She is a good and caring mother. But when the fate of all of her children is put at risk because of dominance of Mankind, she reveals her righteous anger.

dark smoke billows at the base of her spine and she is compelled to invoke all of her strength in the setting right of the planetary balance she is designed to uphold. As the day deepens and the shadows extend across the landscape, she summons her tribe of Warrior Woman.

She gifts them with night dreams so that they may understand the task ahead. This is a battle she cannot win on her own. This is a journey we all belong to. The road is long and full of shadows, but the for her we will dance our way into the unknown.

Because, without her, we are nothing.
