Beltane, the cross-quarter day between the spring equinox and the summer solstice, arrives soon. On May 1, we live half-way between spring's green-growing wood season and summer's full-blown red fire.

Beltane derives, as I understand it, from words meaning "fire." But can't you just hear the "belly" in Beltane as well?

May 1 is a time to celebrate the fire in our bellies, the impulse for growth into fruition, the manifestation of our dreams and determination, what we will harvest abundantly in days to come.

Beltane is a fine time to begin Initiation 2012: Awakening Your Sacred Center. Come join me in this inspiring study!

Blessed be,
Lisa

Wild winds blow, celebrating the shifting of the seasons. Tumbleweeds are tumbling around the mesas, gathering in the arroyos, crossing roads. I like to help the Tumbleweeds roll over the fence and onto the wilderness lands - free to dance with the winds and continue on their way. Here are some of my ponderings on the medicines of these intriguing nomadic plants:

Touching the world of the tumbleweeds has allowed me to feel what it's like to naturally embody change. These wild nomads of the desert readily transform and playfully tumble around in their dance with life and death, all according to their unique, ingenious design. Tumbleweeds know about rooting themselves only when and where it's nourishing. And they intentionally move on from what-has-been when the cycle is complete, when that purpose has been served, honoring it all with their ease, lightness and quirky grace. Tumbleweeds have shown me how to call in the winds to let old attachments go. (excerpt from Tumbleweeds)

I spent hours yesterday looking through old poetry of mine, mostly because I found some I suspect belong to someone else. After years, it can be hard to tell. Writers, poets in particular, keep these things, bits and pieces of poetry that may not have gone where you wanted to go, but you can't throw it away. It is, after all, a part of you. The future problem comes in how it is organized. I was looking for a specific poem...Can't recall the title; I think it was in my second book...All I know is that it uses confetti as an image. Instead, I found poems I had forgotten, that took me back to the moment they were conceived. Poetry is really pieces of life. It goes deeper than a journal; in fact, a good journal is poetry or poetic at least. BTW, I didn't find that poem and now I have an image of the images in a poem to recreate in a new poem...An interesting challenge.

Happy Mother's Day, magic mamas!!


Mother's Day is quickly approaching and the spring is showing us new signs of life with the earth in full bloom. April and May are very fertile months- time to respect and honor our fertility.

a mom

They say Mother's Day is a commercial holiday, but I love a holiday that celebrates motherhood and love that the public gives thanks for a day to all the hard work we moms do- whether it's birthing a baby, wiping a tear, laughing at a first joke, carrying a bruised knee, holding back a sick lil one's hair, rubbing a tummy, telling a story or singing a lullaby... we are always in motion!!

moms day

HUGS to ALL MOMMIES XOOXO

Last night a friend called and told me about a dream she had two weeks ago, a "big" dream as the Jungians say, that has stayed with her in the days since.

Her sharing the dream with me is a great gift, an invitation to dip into the collective unconscious, our collective wisdom, through the portal of her story.

If this were my dream, I'd be flying solo in a spaceship, a "pod," in the dark and starless void of outer space. I'm heading toward a golden orb, possibly a planet, in the distance. That's my destination, the guide that marks my path.

Suddenly, that sphere dims, shifts to the right, disappears from sight. Now I'm totally alone, nothing ahead to guide me.

What will I do? How will I navigate? What is my destination and how will I get there?

If this were my dream, after my initial -- and probably considerable -- frenzy, I might cast my eye around this pod I'm flying. Is there a navigation system I've overlooked? Has it been hidden under boxes of this and that? Does it need repair? Polishing? Does it need some sort of software update?

I'm betting that the guidance system that enables us to set, and keep, a true course is already installed in the pod -- the body -- we're flying.

I invite you to access your own pod's navigation system by rediscovering, awakening, and celebrating your body's sacred center.

Blessed be!
Lisa

P.S. Beltane, May 1, the celebration of the belly's pro-creative power, is a great time to begin the adventure of "Initiation 2012: Awakening Your Sacred Center"!

Spring is beginning to arrive here in the desert mesas of New Mexico. Little green sprouts popping up from the sandy soil. Diverse song birds perching in the juniper trees. Lizards venturing out from their hibernation. And just the other day, a Turkey Vulture circled over the house and above Jasmine, my canine friend, and me as we hiked out on the land. I love welcoming the Turkey Vultures as they return from their winter homes.

In an ancient Egyptian tradition, the Turkey Vulture is highly honored and revered. The Turkey Vulture is regarded as a sacred symbol and teacher of Unconditional Love. Whenever I see Turkey Vultures soaring in the winds, I imagine them showering the earth with unconditional love flowing out from their outstretched wings.

For many if not most women, reclaiming our body's center -- our bellies -- as sacred is quite a stretch.

Some cultures around the world honor the sacred nature of our body's center with names such as "Energy Garden," "Throne of the Creator," "Sea of Vitality," and "Gate of the Mysterious Female."

What are some of the words you, your family, and your friends have used to name your belly?

If "pooch" is one of those words, get ready to awaken your sacred center with a round of mighty belly laughs. Witness Nancy Cave and friends in a session of "Poo Chi," taped at the Tsunami Bookstore in Eugene, OR on Oct 2, 2009!

Baby blessings and welcome to the magic mamas' spring blog!

welcome spring

Okay- I'm ready for Spring!! How about you?


I love this season and holiday because I can explain the significance of Eostara with fertility and rebirth, and watch my children delight in the blessings of the earth's renewal. My son loves to get his hands in the earth and plant seeds and bulbs. His new favorite word is 'forsythia' which he proudly points out whenever we see the bright yellow flowers. . . and I swear my baby girl is staring at fairies in our budding garden.


What do you do with your children for the vernal equinox?
Do you talk about Persephone? Ostara? What are your favorite spring activities?

We blow eggs- then dye them with natural coloring (berries are the best for this!!) ... I have done that every year since I was little. We also try to plant something in the thawing ground.
I love the fertility symbolism of eggs and bunnies and I talk to my son about birth and growth and life and of course, we look for buds and birds! That first robin is always a blessing.

Equinox Blessings,
