Full Wolf Moon

By the light of the moon Full Wolf Moon

the full moon wolf howls. 

A spectator to some, 

the truth to others. 

Go dear ones and 

bask in the light 

of the full wolf moon. 

 

The January Full Moon is known as the Full Wolf Moon, and in some Native American cultures, it is called the snow moon, to other Native tribes this occurs in February.

 Why is it called this? 

In Native American and early Colonial times, the Full Moon for January was called the Full Wolf Moon. It appeared when wolves howled in hunger outside the villages as the snow piled high.  The cold bareness of the land, created an echo, a call to the land, Mother Gaia, for food.

  Why a wolf? 

In symbolism and the totem,  the wolf is known for a strong connection into higher intuition. If you have ever heard of the idiom “wolf’s instict;” this is true as they have a way of knowing just when to appear.   A wolf is an excellent communicator with other wolves, the spiritual world and Luna (moon). As the wolf appears to you, what does your instict say or react to, what you are trying to say, but are not be hearing. Another moment they are known for is “sinking your teeth into,” but rather, thinking in a scary manner, look at it as what is the wolf trying to show you, communicate to your tru heart.

January Full Moon: 

Let’s look at the energies that have been cycling for us.  This full moon is January 23, 2016 @ 05:46 pm PST.  This is at the end of Mercury Retrograde.  Mercury Retrograde is a time of reflection, it is a time to slow down, unwind and truly see what no longer serves you.  The bareness of the winter land, Merucry and the Full Wolf Moon can help you release that which no longer serves you.

Do not look at this as death, rather look at this as stillness. The stillness that you need to release, so that you may re-birth into a renewal of your heart and soul. A moment to go deep within, and sit with what you heart truly needs, not what the etheric ego desires.  As the wolf comes, sit with thee, request for the energies of the wolf to help you transfer what you need to Luna, so she may let it go.

Howls of the Wolf Removal of Old Baggage: 

  • Light a candle, and gaze into the flame. 
  •  Ask what do I need to release, stop listen and allow the stillness  unfolding to 
  • the beating heart.  
  • The heart whispers, allow this to deepen. Allow your heart to speak its truth. 
  •  Write down what comes, light this over your flame, and let it go releasing-to the wolf, who’s
  • howling, 
  • voicing echos will carry to Luna.  
  • Luna will release this from you. 
  • Take 3 deep breathes in. 
  • Rest.

 

Go Dear Ones, healing your heart by the light of the moon using an eternal flame.  Happy, Howling Full Wolf Moon and Happy Releasing, each and every Dear Heart. May you be peace and love to your heart.

Much Love, Much Light and Magical Blessings, 

Natasha

The Voice of Authenticity

By Natasha Botkin 

Have you heard the whispers in the air, the lull of the moon, the dance of the waves…

One thing is for sure, 2016 will not allow you to hide, procrastinate and ignore.  The energy vibes are calling, whispering, saying your truth and the more that you try to ignore or hide, the stronger the vibes may become.  

It is like 2016 is standing up and saying enough, enough with your shenanghans.  I am here in the now; now follow me.  

The old adage of fake it until you make it, no longer rings true.  The toll of the bell, rings of love, of truth, of light.  

Now, this is not to say, that there will be those, who insist on “their way” with the idea of “free will.”  I am here to gently emphasize that this is a 9 year in numerology, and the karmic energies are here to remind you; good or bad, but karma would like your attention and this will not sulk away, as it would in the past.  

Here are a few ways to show up in an authentic manner, which can calm the storm of the lesson if you allow. 

Ask yourself are you authentically expressing:

  1. A feeling 
  2. An emotion (allowing yourself to feel this emotion)   Do not ignore it, this will tighten its grip- Breathe in and out as the emotion happens.
  3. A thought
  4. Is this a feeling, emotion or thought? 
  5. Where did the feeling, emotion or thought originate from? Pay careful attention to the signs that your emotional body is sending to your etheric body (i.e.  is your chest tight- then breath into your heart center and allow the emotion to flow in and out of you-almost like an ocean wave). 
  6. Is this actually a belief?  What is the illusion that you are trying to convince yourself as your truth?

The old adage of fake it til your make it, is an old adage, pattern and belief; the awakened conscious is no longer tolerant of these shenanghans.  And like an alligator these are bubbling up to the surface.  

                                                          

 “Toil, toil, toil and trouble….” bubble, bubble bubble.

Place those woes in a pink bubble.  Take a deep breath, breath the woe into the pink bubble and gentle blow this away.  As the pink bubble leaves you, you may ask an angel to take it from you and/or request for them to help you pop it.    pink bubble

Awwww, this feels so much lighter, so much better.

May you feel light and love.

How Do You Repsond?

By Natasha Botkin 

Life can create choppy waves, the true question is how do you respond.

My dog and I were enjoying a beautiful, sunny day at the beach.  The waves pushing her around, but as a typical Lab, she was relentless on, “Please, oh please throw me the stick.  I can do this Mom.”  Me completely aware of her swimming abilities.

A bitter lady nearby said, “You are a cruel pet owner, she’s surely to drown.”

Now this lady, has never seen us, does not know us and has no clue to us.  This did not deter me from enjoying my moment at the beach.  My sweet dog happily, jumping in the waves, fetching her stick and both of us having an all around good time.

At one moment, a wave came up and nearly toppled her, but she held her ground and frolicked out to sea.  It was at this moment, my higher self said, “Well how do you respond?”  

Brilliant question from a wise soul!   So I ask you the same requited question.  How do you respond?  Do you allow the waves to toppled you over or beat against you, feeling as if you are drowning or less than there of.  Or do you reach deep within and allow the tranquility of peace to wash all over you, in you and around you as life creates those tough wavy moments.

As this woman, made her statement, I did not “feel” anything, rather I knew this was not about me, but her.  My choice at that particular moment to turn inward, inhaling the calm, serene blue skies inward, pausing for a moment and then breathing out a pink bubble and blowing this to the wind and sea.

May you too have the ability to breathe in the peace and breathe out a pink bubble  blowing “this” away from you.

Not All Wasingtonians Drink Starbucks

by Natasha Botkin 

Heart Coffee

This is by no means a manner of trashing Starbucks.  Once upon a time, I adored the Cafe Mocha treat.  I relished in the factor that I would enjoy a quick hot sip; then after getting past that tongue burn; pondering, why do I do that even though, I know it will happen.  Rush, rush down my throat and in mere moments it was greedily gone as if it had never existed.  So, I tried the long time point of savoring the cafe mocha and would relent to the trickle of this deliciousness traveling down my throat.  Looking at an empty cup and feeling like Patrick Starfish from Spongebob after inhaling his chocolate bar. Hey where’d it go.

After many moments, and many years of enjoyment this ended for me.  It was no longer a delight, but a burden to stand in line with “are you kidding me” amounts of people all like corporate zombies “must get coffee to survive,” and the expense.  There has to be another way. It was more of an awakening for me.

My obsession with french things began again or rather in a new manner.  There are many delights of France that one day I will enjoy, I always say.   At that point in time, it was a glass coffee press.  I would grind fresh coffee beans and press the aroma and freshest of coffee. Aww, the thrill of each morning getting to create the taste of the day, slowly pressing, releasing, enjoying. This continued until a personal espresso/coffee maker appeared in my life and left quite quickly as well.  Money was tight, so I bought a basic no thrills coffee maker; and my love of coffee subsided.

Then one day it was mentioned, “you need a Keurig.”  What is that? A quick zap and instance of a smart phone, and I was looking at pure delight.  I remember how excited I was when it was ordered, how long will it take to arrive and coming home to my surprise.  Yes, I enjoy this very much.  Love certain coffees that are offered, found myself with a reusable K cup and the enjoyment of grinding the whole beans of the moment, brewing the coffee and adding whatever almond, cashew or hazelnut milk that I have on hand. To sit and enjoy a wonderful cup of coffee.

In truth, I’ve spoken of coffee; yet, this has readings between the lines.  Can you see them?  I have lived life in a hurried manner, rushing to what’s next, then slowing down enjoying my time and then taking off to speed up again.

My angels saying enough, “we can fly as fast as you speed, but are you truly living?”  Their brief warning of last week.  Slow down and take care of you, stop running around with your head chopped off.  I arrived home to a crow consuming a pigeon, well an eagle had decapitated it and the crow feasting on what was left.  I tried to see the symbolism in it all; my angels gently guiding me.  When did the message arrive, just this morning as I was brewing my coffee, and so thankful that I do not need to rush off to go stand in line.

My message as a tortoise. a sweet soul made a simple comment on my blog, Thanks Melissa for taking the time, arrived as of now, slow down, enjoy life, your soul needs nourished, you heart cherished. Love you, love you, love you for without love there is no you. I am love.

What am I off to do….not sure….moment to moment of love and self nourishment for now.

Endless Magic

by Natasha Botkin 

There are no accidents in life; everything is part of one’s dream.  Yes, even the tough stuff has been destined to you per one’s agreement pro esoteric form.

Today, a gentleman opened up magical possibilities of awe and wonder for me.  This destiny paving the way for something far greater.  His gift seemed simple and in a way it is.  It looks to another like a polished rock.  Aww, it is not.  As a crystal elder, I should be able to name the crystal, and yet I could not; but, upon placing it in my hand, the crystal began to vibrate and gently sing.

There were no exchange of what was happening; he knew he had delivered the crystal to it’s owner –  he pleased and me delighted to be the receiver.

Awww, dear crystal I am incredibly excited for all the possibilities that you will open me up for.  I am truly blessed in many, many ways!!  270666_428571330511863_201485634_n

Happy May-Day!

May Day Flowers 2015

May-day has always been a special kind of day for me.  I absolutely adore nature, and flowers are a special gift for us all to enjoy.  As a child, you could find me just before May Day in the park or at home, creating May Day Flowers.

Now how I went about it was also quite whimsical.  One never knew if they would receive a yellow dandelion or a dandelion puff to make a magical wish.

Then I would take these special smiles from the fairies, and run up to someone’s door, place it at the door, ring the doorbell and giggle while running away.  I always thought that I was so sneakily clever, only to discover from a neighbor that she loved my special gifts over the years..  As she put it, “dear you were giggling away with such delight, no one had the heart to tell you; you did bring so much joy to those who always needed it; it’s like you knew who needed it the most.”  Awww, my eyes were filled with wonderful tears, and here to think I thought that I was so spry; oh well it is the thought that counts.

May you receive a special gift of love this May Day, whether it is a real flower bouquet, paper flowers or a dear drawing from a special little loved one.
