Journey: November 29, 2011

Standard

Today I began my journey with a single intention – a single question: What went wrong?

Humans are the only species that are bent on destroying themselves and everything in their world. Are we a cancer of this great planet or did something go wrong eons ago?

We have been misled to believe (at least in the western hemisphere) that human beings are the superior species on the planet. If that were true, we would be protecting and nurturing all life here. We would not be heading pell mell towards self destruction.

Something had to have gone wrong. I can feel it in my core and it won’t leave me alone.

I decided to begin this Journey in the Lower World. My wonderful powerful animal was waiting for me when I arrived. We travelled for quite a while. I struggled to maintain focus on my question.

After a seemingly long time – or was it a split second? – just as I was close to giving up, I heard      “Words”

The signal to return began and we headed homeward. I said Thank You and returned to this reality and began to process the journey.

One word:    Words.

I thought about it for a while. It was delicate and elusive. I had to be careful and allow it to unfold. Too much thinking could destroy it. “It” was an essence in and of itself (this is extremely difficult to explain).

This is what evolved and is still evolving…….

Language allows lies and deceptions. Intuition, the language of plants, animals, minerals, all of nature does not allow for deception. Someone told me that animals ‘know’, but they don’t know that they know, eluding to their “inferiority”. That is incorrect. Animals do know. They know they know. We are the ones who are confused. We humans ‘know’, but we don’t know that we know. We have forgotten who we are.

Continuing the unfoldment……

Thoughts are things. Thoughts become words. Words are things. Thoughts and words create our reality. You can change your world by changing your thoughts.

Every single thing humans have created began with a thought or an idea. That thought or idea came from inspiration.

We believe what we think and think what we believe. What we speak out loud becomes manifest in the created world, thus we are constantly creating our realities moment to moment. Most of the time our words seem to take on a life of their own and can quickly get out of control. We have a hard time turning off the mind chatter.

I can’t help but wonder who or what hardwired humans to begin communicating with words. The intention may have been good or malefic or an experiment. Or maybe their own egos were so out of control they wanted to create themselves in their own image here in the physical. That I do not know and feel that it is not time for us to know – yet. It does not feel appropriate to ask.

Whatever the intention, language/words/thoughts have gone beyond being distractions. We have lost our awareness of connectedness with all and now see ourselves as separate. Many mistakenly see themselves as superior to other life and even within their own species (know a few of them?).

We have forgotten our divinity and the divinity of everything in this universe. There is no separation.

Aura Photos

This is Sally

While we were in Sedona, AZ we decided to get our auras photographed. A black dog up against a black background is difficult to see, but her aura filled the frame! You can see her pink leash and collar towards the bottom on the left side of the photo below. Her aura is beautiful Royal Blue and Ultra Violet. She is a special little black dog.

Mine is below. Mine is blue, green, white, violet, lavender and ultra violet.

Hello world!

Standard

Hello World!

I chose to name this site DIVINE BEAR to honor my ancestry. My maiden name, Osborne, is ancient and some say predates the Vikings. The surname Osborne is derived from the Old Norse personal name Asbjorn, meaning divine bear. It is my heritage, my ancestry, my tribe, my lineage.

That said, this blog has nothing to do with genealogy. It is a blog about my spiritual path – what I do and how I do it.

It’s about my spiritual path which is unique to me. It’s about sharing things I’ve learned over the years. It’s a cairn for anyone else who happens to pass this way.

I love crystals and stones. I love energy medicine. I love flower essences. I am an herbalist. I love journeying for myself and for others. I love firewalking. I love storytelling. I love writing. I love teaching. I love astrology. I love learning. I love animals. I love metaphysics. I love plants. I love being. I love magic. I love ‘medicine’. I simply love……..and that my friends, is the key.

This existence in the physical is not about us humans. This planet was not created  for  humans. Our original purpose was to help. Somehow we humans forgot that we came to help this living, breathing, beautiful planet earth on her own evolutionary path. Every other species remembers except us. Somehow a long time ago we got disconnected from The Source and ego took over (what and how is moot. I’m not interested in religious theory).

Through my writings and consultations, it is my hope that others will find something of value that they can use on their own unique and personal spiritual earthwalk.

Welcome. Take a look around. Enjoy. Click on the tabs above or just enjoy the blogposts. If it’s not for you, please leave simply and gracefully with (or without – your call) my blessings. Thank you.
