Both the Fool and the Ouroboros as archetypes keep showing up for me this year. It’s exhilarating and liberating, and the shadow self within also resists it at times, uncomfortable with changes that nudge, fearful of being swallowed, anxious of the Void.
These two spirits gently remind me that looking back in romanticized and exaggerated fondness can keep me stuck in drying cement, but if looked back with a sense of curiosity and gratitude, there are clues that can encourage me to be receptive to each baby step outward and forward in my present moments. Embrace the nothingness, welcome the feeling of being consumed, the dissolve is sacred.
My nothing in the beginning and nothing in the end are not the same.
If you’re seeking to heighten your spirit communication skills, and are wanting to explore slow, intimate conversations with spirits — ancestral spirits, beings of the land, spirits of your spaces and environment, planetary beings, and other forms of consciousness, consider joining us in the PRAYERS + DEVOTIONS IN ANIMISM series! We are currently in week 5 of Movement 1, and enrolment is open and on-going. Recordings are available for folks who are tuning in from a time zone that is not as suited to be on live-stream or simply for those who wish to pace themselves to their own beat. Sliding scale tuition and payment plans available.
