Fire Temple Blessed by Orbs

Guest Contributor:  Laura Wolf
Picture by Chuck Willhide

As many of you have heard, we had a tremendous fire recently at Dove Mountain / Isis Cove.  The fire here has been an incredible initiation for all of us at Isis Cove, and particularly for Windraven, who completely lost her home to the fire.  I will post some of Star Wolf's writings about that night and about the ways we are working together as a community to support Windraven.  Today we received this incredible picture from Chuck Willhide, one of our Isis Cove Community members.  He took this amazing picture that shows thousands of glowing orbs that were gathered with us when we initiated and activated our Fire Temple a few nights prior to the Dove Mountain fire.  We are astounded by all of the beautiful colors and sizes of the Orbs, as though they are gathering to bless the Fire Temple with us.

As a community, we have all been processing what this fire means to each of us, to Isis Cove, and it's greater message.  We are talking about the power of Fire to ignite, to transform, to heal, to create, to destroy, to wake up, to cook, to burn, to celebrate, to let go.  We are talking about balance and consciousness.   We are doing ceremony on the land and thanking Spirit for all that the Fire spared and all that it is teaching us.  Many of us and I'm sure many of you are feeling the fires heating up on the planet at this time.  The volcano in Iceland may be another expression of the firey planetary energies at play.  I have been ignited by our Fire at Isis Cove.  It has helped me to get crystal clear about what is truly important and that is only Love and getting on with what I came here to do.  There's no time to waste and every breath I take is precious.

The both/and of being human for me this week is that I tend to want to sink back into Water after a big Fire.  I am getting to practice cultivating balance between all of my elements - to stay willing to embrace the Fires transformation by keeping my commitments to myself and my creativity, without going into workaholism and burn out.  I get to practice resting when I'm tired and nourishish myself, but not totally checking out and floating away.  I get to practice grounding my energy and staying in my body when the Fires get intense, or simply chopping wood and carrying water when I want to run away to a beach or escape into the dreamtime.  And the hardest part for me, I get to invite in Air, celebration, playfullness - and not take myself so darn seriously all the time.  Whew!  I, for one, am incredibly grateful to this Fire for what it is teaching me and awakening in me.  Blessed Be!

Star Wolf's Welcome

My journey in life has been a spiral path of wholeness that continues to move through cycles of change taking me through many symbolic death and rebirth experiences, which I refer to as “shamanic portals of transformation.” I have learned more than I ever thought possible through a process I will share with you in my future writings, called the Shamanic Breathwork™ process, and the five initiations process called S.H.I.P. Once I have made sense of the lessons on my path and discovered the bigger picture, I am ready to pass on and share both my stumblings and my leaps along the way. In my own spiritual quest, I have always appreciated most those who shared their struggles and victories in an authentic way. That will be my humble attempt within the context of this blog.

I believe that we are all indigenous to this earth. I respect all my relations, whether they be human, animal, plant, mineral, visible or invisible ones. We are all related by the great web of life and sent here from the great beyond. Everything we say and do touches all parts of this magnificent web of creation. If I treat myself or anyone else unfairly, we are all affected in some way. Fortunately, the converse is true, as well. I am not perfect. If I am honest and have humility, I can admit that I will make mistakes as I seek to further evolve my conscious awareness. I can also make living amends by striving to change my negative thoughts and behaviors, and live from a more open-hearted connection to others and to myself. I have learned over time that all the changes I seek in the outer world must begin by looking within myself first. I have also learned that it is imperative that I have the courage to be honest with myself and to look at the “shadow” side of my personality. When I have had the courage to truly know myself better, the light and the dark, I have found the inner strength to change my life and shape-shift myself into the light of my true soul’s image.

From time to time I will share different programs and events that are being offered through my non profit organization (Venus Rising Institute for Shamanic Healing Arts) in my blog, as well as photos, videos and teachings, etc. But the main purpose of this blog is to provide an outlet to share the inner musings of my shamanic spirit and journey, and to hear yours as well. I look forward to connecting with all of you who intuitively know that you, too, are a valuable part of the shamanic process of conscious co-creation and evolution on the planet at this time. We each have a role to play and a soul purpose in the drama unfolding in our world today. Together we can create a better place for all beings on earth to live and leave a powerful legacy for those who are yet to come.

I believe we will all be remembered by future generations for the choices we make during this time of huge evolutionary change. In the words of the wonderful poem, “Summer Day,” by Mary Oliver, “what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”

In Love, In Service, In Gratitude,
Namaste’
