What a strange trip it's been. Nature has been speaking to us Coloradans lately and in the past 24 hours I feel so blessed to have been able to witness her ferocity in raw form. Our adventure to the Mishawaka started off with our first ever tornado sighting, literally within a mile of the touchdown site of the cyclone. The thing preventing us from being directly in it's path was simply when we stopped to ask the question, "What does one do when a tornado seems to be flying right at you?" Why you get out and take pictures of course! I don't think any of us realized just how close we were as we watched particles fly around the air and moments later drove through the path of the tornado's destruction which had left debris in it's wake. I can't help but tune into the feeling of what the Earth is trying to express to us in such forceful velocity. It seems to resonate with the rawness in my through the past few weeks and this seeming force that is whipping through me, raging like the Kali river, destroying and creating everything in it's path simultaneously. Why have I found myself in the eyes of these epic storms the past few weeks, braving the elements in my man made vessel and witnessing a force that's unlike any other I have felt this far in my life time? What is the message screaming to be heard, forcing my being to witness this force in its most ferocious form? For me, it''s about balance, ho'oponopono, righting the energy that has become expressed in discord and pain. We need to reckon with the damage we've done, nature cries out, roaring, flooding the valleys and creating new paths to awakening, cleansing, and reconnecting. I hear you mama, please continue to guide me on the appropriate resonance for the delivery of your message vibrating through my being.
If you notice in this photo, there is a heart right next to the funnel. I seem to get a lot of these messages, mother natures expression towards me is often filled with signs of spiritual love, no matter what she is trying to say. I feel blessed to have witnessed this energy and to feel so close to the struggle and beauty that is the Earth right now. While empathy is a gift, it can also be quite painful to experience the energy of a planets pain through my body. Lately, the energy has left me ill to my stomach, energy wanting to force it's way out through my throat chakra, violently, messily, suddenly. As I tune in I recognize that this energy goes beyond my human form and wonder how I can help transform it into something less painful.
