This morning I sip my coffee while waiting for Grandfather Sun to make his appearance. Grandmother Moon is out of eye shot from where I sit as she makes her descent into the West. She still has a couple of weeks before her face is full, although she shed much light last night, reminding me she's moving across the sky. Both Grandfather and Grandmother remind me of their constant watch over Earth Mother. In light of all the shapeshifting on Earth, all the upheavals and unearthing of life as we have known it during our lifetime, there are still constants in front of us. The opportunity for each of us is to pay attention, notice them and add them to our gratitude list constantly available!
As humans we need a sense of security and in order to have that it is our responsibility to notice that in addition to "birth, death and taxes," there are many constants in our lives that we might want to acknowledge. Just as any relationship thrives when each person connects with those they love and respect (including our animals!), so it is with the roof over our head, beds in which we sleep, standing ones that shelter our homes from the elements, just to name a few. Now might be a good time to look at the items around you as you read this blog and remember why it was so important that you kept it in your home. When was the last time you turned on the lamp in your living room and really appreciated what it provides for you and why you either purchased it or remember who gifted you with such a useful item.
Ah, the constants in our lives that offer a service to us and those we love. Maybe paying attention to those constants will help us do the same with ourselves and each other?
This morning I feel hopeful that things are changing in our world and that through these changes more love, joy and laughter will help each day become an adventure! This morning my heart is grateful and confident in the goodness of the heart . . . humans, animals, trees, winged ones and star beings. This morning my heart is full💜
Welcome to the Glorious months of Fall and all the amazing examples of how to drop all pretenses and allow ourselves to be our authentic selves. We welcome you to join us as we welcome this month's Clan Mother, Walks Tall Woman, on Thursday, Nov 2, at 7:00 p.m. We will thank Weaves the Web for her teachings in October and welcome Walks Tall Woman and her teachings of how to Walk Our Talk by leading through example instead of insisting that others simply follow the leader. She also teaches us how to be proud of our accomplishments through self-esteem, not self-importance.
Check out the tab, 13 Original Clan Mothers for more information and some questions to consider. Wear a skirt or bring a sarong to honor those that walked before us. Bring a friend and an open heart to learn more about these amazing teachers of Truth. Please RSVP by Thursday noon IF you plan to attend. From my heart to yours, Vicky
With all the hurricanes, floods, fires and earthquakes many people say it's a sign of the "end times" of the world. Others say it is a direct reflection of our lack of acknowledgement global warming exist. I say, it is Mother Earth helping us uproot the stale, old, outdated, antiquated mindset in which we have existed over the past century. Oh, certainly technology has advanced us in many ways by putting information at our finger tips and allowing us to expand our knowledge of other countries ways of life.
Whatever view one chooses to explain what is occurring, one thing is eminently clear, we are not in control of these natural disasters and devastating events. What is also very clear is we can and need to pause and look at what we CAN do to comfort others, lend a hand to our neighbor, put our money where our mouth is and actually take a step to help rebuild the sort of community we truly want.
We certainly can start to take steps toward being more respectful to our environment rather then ignore the deep and lasting actions ignorance and arrogance has on our world, just as it has on our neighbors. Now is a good time to realize our neighbors are just like us. They, too, have hopes and dreams for their world, just as they have painful situations to confront, as most of us do. Perhaps opening our eyes to the amazing opportunity in front of us to deepen our understanding of true compassion will be the very medicine needed to heal the hearts of All Our Relations on this beautiful planet and bring about a sense of community that respects all things as valuable resources, including the humans! Hopefully it is a sign of the "end times" and we accept the golden opportunity to change what has not served us for a very long time. To get "unstuck" begins with you and me being willing to lovingly look in the mirror, decide what we can do to be more of what we want in the world and then take the action to do it!
Join us this Thursday, Oct 5 at 7 p.m. as we welcome the Clan Mother for this moon, "Weaves the Web." Please wear a skirt or bring a sarong to honor the woman who walked before us as we listen to the teachings of this Clan Mother who teaches us about Working with the Truth. For more information on this Clan Mother check out the "This Moon" tab on the left. Please RSVP if you plan to attend by Thursday noon. Until then, have a fabulous week!
This month we will share the teachings of Listening Woman, the guardian of introspection, on Wednesday, May 4 beginning at 7 p.m. Check out the, This Moon, tab on the left to read a brief overview of what this Clan Mother offers to those willing to really "Hear the Truth!." Please remember to wear a skirt of bring a sarong or a piece of fabric to wrap around yourself to honor the women who walked before us. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday evening to assist with the planning for that night. Weather permitting we will gather around a fire so a blanket and/or lawn chair is also recommended.
This Thursday, April 6 at 7 p.m. we will celebrate the ways in which Weighs that Truth touched out lives this past month and welcome in Looks Far Woman with the Full Moon Tuesday, April 11. Check out the "This Moon" tab to see a preview of April's Clan Mother, she is the Keeper of the Crack in the Universe and offers those seeking a deeper understanding of ways to Accept the Truth. Remember to wear a skirt or bring something to wrap about yourself to honor the feminine ancestors who walked before us. We look forward to sitting with each of you.
It's time for the Monthly Gathering! This Thursday, March 2, we will meet and share the teachings of Weighs the Truth. As the first signs of spring emerge from the earth, the daffodil offers those willing to take the time to notice their beauty, an opportunity to pause. So Weighs the Truth offers the teaching of how to "accept the truth." This can be tricky since most of us are often too busy to pay attention to what's in front of them. Join us with questions, insights and an open heart as we gather to learn another aspect of the Truth.
The first Clan Mother Gathering is tomorrow, Feb 2, at 6:30 p.m. We will be exploring the teachings by Jamie Sams of the 13 Original Clan Mothers. It is recommended you read the Clan Mother for the month before each meeting; however, come tomorrow evening, sit and listen to an introduction/summary of what these teachings are all about and then decide if its something you want delve into next month.
Out of respect of the tradition, women are asked to wear a skirt or bring a sarong/fabric to wrap around themselves while sitting in circle. There are extra sarongs here if you do not have any or forget. Men as very welcome to attend these Gatherings since the teachings are about understanding how to live in Truth for all people. We would love to see men participate in these teachings!
If you have any questions, or need directions please send an email to: email@example.com. That is checked more frequently then FB messages. Also, check out the, "This Moon," tab for a summary/overview of the Clan Mother Teachings.
Oh my goodness it is amazing to me we are firmly into the year, 2017! Where has 2016 gone? My mother used to tell me the older I get the more quickly the years fly by . . . she was so very correct!
As I enter into 2017 one of my "focal points" is to be more diligent with my website, blog, FB, any thing I currently use as social media. I do not wish to tweet, instagram, snap chat or any other new medium by which to be online; however, it feels important to keep up what is presently in place.
What I really, really prefer is a good ole conversation; however, this site is to offer a sneak peak into what Head to Heart Talks is all about . . . apparently, people prefer to "check out" a person via electronics before speaking to them, and, that's probably a wise decision. So, check out the site, leave a comment or two and by all means send an email if you have questions.
One of the first things we have scheduled for this year is a monthly gathering to learn about the 13 Original Clan Mothers as introduced by Jamie Sams. Each month we will get to know the teachings of that specific month's Clan Mother in order to learn more about the Truth. That's right, there are many facets to the Truth that can and will enrich our lives if we will take the time to consider the teachings. Check out the tab, "This Moon" for a summary of each month's Clan Mother, then purchase the book and see if it's something you would like to sit with other folks and discuss. There is no obligation to attend each month, and both men and women are welcome to attend. (The Truth does not have a gender preference!) We will gather the first Thursday of each month from 6:30 - 8.
There you have it, a welcome to 2017 and to the creation of whatever your heart desires. It is our hope to help you gain clarity by becoming aware of the manner in which your head and heart communicate. That's about it for now. Whatever you wish for your year, let's make 2017 one to remember!
