The Sound and Scent of Life Itself

Dear Friends and Loved Ones:

Following a severe period of drought, to hear and smell the rain falling upon the world becomes the sound and scent of life itself!

That gentle hypnotic sound on our metal roof wakes me sometime before dawn. I get up, come downstairs and begin my day with that sweet, steady sussurus for my foundation. I'm keenly aware that my spiritual practice of constant cleaning within me--using gratitude and love--has an unexpected side-effect. I directly experience the subtle behavior of cells, molecules, even atoms, and subatomic energies.

For example, heating the water for tea, I FEEL the heat swiftly conduct through metallic lattices of the kettle like express trains and how this stimulates the elegant dance of the H2O molecules into a wild kinetic frenzy.

Sometime after my first cup of tea, and reading for a while, the sky grows pale and the rainfall lets up. I go outside and wander quietly through Paradise Garden. Even such a light touch of rainfall immediately heightens the green! Plus at this time of year dozens of different things bloom in the garden. Every plant here is a great and intensely aware being! I feel deep and profound respect for their vegetative intelligence. The moist scents of soil and vegetation reaches me from every quarter. Birds embroider the morning with song and response.

My heart swells with gratitude and love for everything (no exceptions!) like a bicuit in the oven.

When I consider this, I realize that the rain has always spoken deeply to me. It speaks to something deep within, perhaps at some level of ancestral memories. Epigenetics has recently revealed that we do inherit some acquired predispositions. So did my ancestors experience drought?

It may or may not have been drought. However I do know that many times they felt immense gratitude for the simple reprieve from need and suffering that Nature can unexpectedly bestow. I can feel this  grace, not only in my cells--but also in my jeweled molecules and the ecstatic dance of my atomic stardust.

For the last 33 years I've studied how the elements that compose our human bodies influence what and who we are. Now I offer a service based on my awareness and on everything that I AM, a service called Ancient Egyptian Shapeshifting Oracle (or A.E.S.O.). Please SEE: which also has a link to the A.E.S.O. Facebook page.
