Q. "I know what we have is working. People are so hungry for this work, they are coming to us in droves. The problem is that we can see where it's going, & we've kinda already done it. And it feels like - "Is this it? We just keep sharing others & little pieces of our work & what, people are inspired?" We see the end & I'm getting bored." 

I look up, and there's 35 feet of glistening, silver, fuzzy feathers. I honestly giggle, thinking, "honestly, WTF, how can this not be for the amusement of humans? Spirit is so amazing to make us gifts like this." The light is doing crazy things to the leaves in this tree. She's dancing. 

Q. "The truth is, I have the basic support I need for my work. But if I had more support, I could take this to an entirely different level of contribution. But that means changing my foundation."

I want to somehow bring this tree home, & love her up.
 

>>> if you want more support + attention, capture more light. bring more beauty.<<<


A breeze comes thru and the feathers begin to lift, sway, and twizzle into the soil around me. 

Holy shit. They're seeds.

THE WAY YOU'VE DONE THINGS MAY OR MAY NOT BE IN LINE WITH YOUR INNATE BUILDING GESTURE, WHICH IS SOMEHOW BOTH SPECIFIC & UNLIMITED. 

HAVE YOU BEEN DANCING + FLOATING, HUSTLING, OR RUNNING? HAVE YOU BEEN DIGGING DITCHES, OR PILING SANDBAGS IN FRONT OF A SQUALL? THERE'S A VAST DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SELF-EXPRESSION & SURVIVAL.

LOOK AT WHAT'S WORKED FOR YOU, NOT FOR OTHERS. AGAIN, TALENT + ACHIEVEMENT IS DISTINCT FROM INSPIRITED IMPULSE. 

WHEN DID YOU GO INTO FLOWMENTS, WHERE TIME DISAPPEARED? THOSE ARE THE MOMENTS THAT THINKING STOPPED. THOSE ARE THE MOMENTS THAT YOU WERE IN YOUR ZONE, A SUPPORTED CONDUIT, WORKING WITHIN YOUR INNATE GESTURE.

IF YOU'RE BORED, THEN THERE'S OTHER ASPECTS OF YOUR EXPRESSION THAT NEED ATTENDING. CONSIDER  EACH ASPECT OF YOUR WORK, AND FIND SOMEPLACE TO BRING BEAUTY. WHAT CAN YOU MAKE SHIMMER? BRING MOVEMENT. WHERE CAN YOU BRING DANCE? BRING FOCUSED PURPOSE. WHERE CAN YOU CLARIFY ROLES, & AIM YOUR SIGHTS?

THEY ARE SEEDS.

Desert Mountain Mahogany, in fact. Each feather, slightly distinct in curve + curl, is not just a lit dancer. She's the promise keeper of an entire organism, that will, in turn, create more seeds, more potential than could ever be fulfilled.

IMAGINE YOURSELF A TREE. YOUR SEEDS (IDEAS-PROJECTS-MOVEMENTS), IN THEIR MULTIPLICITY, ARE STILL DISTINCT. DIFFERENT IDEAS, & DIFFERENT POSSIBILITIES. DIFFERENT INVENTIONS, COMMUNITIES, PRODUCTS, & DIFFERENT FORMS OF CONTRIBUTION. AND YET, YOUR SEEDS ARE STILL INFUSED WITH THE PROMISE OF YOUR DNA, YOUR WAY.

your gesture is how you move thru the world, the shape you make when you grow, the tracks you leave in the space around you. desert mountain mahogany shows us how her beauty, how she dances, is also how she attracts light, pollinators, and spreads her magic. her success is in her being herself.

THE INNATE GESTURE (SHAPE THRU WHICH ONE MOVES OVER TIME) OF YOUR SEEDS-IDEAS-PROJECTS-MOVEMENTS, ARE ALSO THE WAY THEY ARE SHARED, THE WAY THAT THEY THEY SPREAD, THE WAY THAT THEY ATTRACT OTHERS, THE WAY THEY DANCE, AND THE WAY THEY FIND THEMSELVES IN FERTILE SOIL.


unless. your roots, core or members are not well enough to proliferate. maybe there hasn't been enough fertile soil. not enough sun, or water. or the earth was somehow poisoned.

the gift of this moment, is to heal. check in with your home soil now. is it nourishing? truly - do you have the nourishment you need for what's wanting to grow? is there poison? think of the purity of organics. what's not clean enough, bright enough, fresh, local & vibrant enough for your innate expression to persist? 

are you, your team & your loved ones local enough in your relationships, or do you send each other non-local? does something need to be healed? is your core strong? (literally) make a plan. how about what you feed your heart, your hands, your ears & your eyes? is it of the quality you need to grow not just yourself, but an heirloom version of yourself?

Q."I'm overwhelmed by the multiplicity of possibilities. These ideas, they come fully intact. My friends have more fucking proposals than I can begin to wrap my head around. And I know exactly what they need to do to get them started, or to push them to the next level. What I can't wrap my head around, is what I should be doing. Which ones are the right priorities? Or how do I help them in a way that pays me enough & gives me enough credit to move on? I want to build out my income streams." 

the truth is that nature is overwhelmingly abundant. there are more seeds than will ever be planted. that's all. it's not personal. if you choose to focus, then you can directly nurture and nourish each seed.   

PICK THE TREES WITH FUTURES YOU WANT TO SEE.

{and let the rest fall away.} 

DON'T DO ANYTHING, ANYMORE, FOR SHALLOW RETURNS. FEED YOUR WHOLE SELF, BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT YOU HAVE TO OFFER THE REST OF US. WE DON'T WANT TO CONSUME OR SUPPORT ANYTHING LESS.

FILL UP. OPEN YOUR HEART CHAKRA TO THE SUN. DANCE. TWIZZLE YOUR WAY INTO PURE + FERTILE SOILS.

{you already know what to do}
