Beautiful, inspiring words and art by @dharamatmama ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŽจโœจ

We give form to our experience of the formless, the eternal, the all-pervading through our art. We are the vessels for a truly divine experience. To embrace the inspiration that pours into us softy and to share it with others is the greatest gift.

Immerse yourself in the fiery dance of creation. Death, rebirth, death, rebirth. Let the great cosmic fire burn away all that is not truly you, birthing the beauty of Source within. ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ”ฅโœจ

. "Nataraja" by @lauren.nova ๐ŸŽจโœจThank you for giving form to electric crystal visions of the divine.

"Individuality is the process of discovering nature's gift. When nature creates us, it implants its seed within us and that is what we have to know. By knowing that secret, we establish communication with nature at large and will eventually be in communion with it. " โœจ๐Ÿ”ฎ๐ŸŒ.
.

Opened to this passage while reviewing my kundalini yoga teacher training textbook. Took me back to India and the surreal (but so intensely real) experience of it all. Fully feeling the connection to all of nature's gifts and allowing myself to really accept them. To understand self love and growth as not only nurturing myself, but the entire world that envelops me. .

. "Manifest" by @danthedarnman
sets out to inspire each viewer to form their own unique insight when contemplating this piece. .
What is your interpretation? What does it evoke within you?.
.
To me, it speaks of different levels of manifestation depending on the level of consciousness experienced. Instant manifestation occurs in the freer, higher realms and it gets denser and more challenging on the physical realm with the interference of our doubts and forgetfulness of our own divinity.
. "I was inspired by the Mind/Body/Spirit trichotomy. There is both ecstasy and suffering in all three realms, and they feed into each other recursively. The title, "Manifest," also refers to the capacity for creation, generally. The higher spiritual realms which sometimes elude us were created from the pure Godhead singularity, which in turn wove the fabric of our 4 dimensional physical universe, from which then arose conscious beings with minds and abstract thoughts." @danthedarnman

Create something today. Pour your heart and soul into it. Don't think about it. Just feel it. Live it. Be it. โœจ

@jonessjonez incredible piece "Imagining Things". Based on the mind's ability to form concepts out of pure potential for manifestation in the outer world. ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŽจโœจ

"Shiva and Shakti - the energy as such and the creation of all that manifests - dance together in a cosmic dance. Those who become aware of this dance of power and creation discover a rainbow to another dimension. Your own divinity is as intangible as the rainbow and as dazzling, as beautiful and as arresting. Just as the rainbow has no substance and is visible only under certain conditions, in the same way you cannot always see your own divinity. .
When you can see the life-giving rays even in the most desperate human tragedies, that is the moment when you become aware that you are the hand-maiden of Divine Mother. You have set spiritual activity in motion - spiritual activity beyond sexual love, beyond physical life, beyond mind. You can see the emptiness of everything that you are normally so busy with. Your relationship to the cosmos becomes the driving force and a source of energy. "

Had to share this message from a dear friend of mine (second image) ๐ŸŒ•โœจ.

What a beautiful ritual to celebrate this period of rebirth and expansion. Full moons hold opportunities to step into the fullest expression of ourselves. We must harness the magic of such potent, celestial moments for the uplifting of all. .
How do you celebrate the full moon? โœจ

Check out @zentril 's new track "Don't Think" on SoundCloud! ๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŒˆ.
.

The track inspired me to do just that: stop thinking and just express the rhythm, to HEAR the music flowing right HERE in this moment. It brought me to a wavy oasis of comforting blue tones and mesmerizing lines. It evokes a summery daze of carefree harmony and fluid perception. The words HEAR and HERE came through in this quick sketch, a realization that truly listening with the whole body takes you deeper and deeper into the present moment. ๐Ÿ”ฎโœจ

If you feel inspired to try it out, sketch what you feel while listening and I'll feature it ๐Ÿ˜Šโœจ

โœจ๐ŸŒฑMULLEIN ๐ŸŒฑโœจ.
.
In India, mullein is regarded as the most potent safeguard against negativity. It is hung over doors, in windows, and carried in satchets. .
The dried leaves were smoked to relieve lung congestion as it holds potent remedies for coughs and colds. .
It is worn to keep wild animals from you while hiking in untamed areas. It also instills courage in the bearer, and a few leaves placed in the shoe keeps one from catching a cold. .
Stuffed into a small pillow, mullein guards against nightmares. .

At one time, witches and magicians used oil lamps to illuminate their spells and rites, and the downy leaves and stems of the mullein offer provided the wicks. .
I've been mystified by the beauty of this plant for awhile, intuitively sensing its medicinal offerings. The above is a mesh of information I learned about it from two different important perspectives on the matter. The first book, "Indian Herbology of North America" gives a thorough explanation of characteristics and medicinal properties, while the second book "Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs" details the more spiritual and ritualistic experiences of the plant. ๐Ÿ’š
.
In addition to this, I just synchronously stumbled upon @sukarewellness 's post about mullein and how the roots can be used to alleviate back pain, help realign the spine, and treat injured discs. There is also the amazing possibility that the exact vertebrae can be healed if using the corresponding part on the stalk of the plant! Wow!! We truly are Mother Earth.

๐ŸŒ…The earth unfolds in fractal visions. The sun sets slowly with technicolor precision. eternal light circulates, it fluctuates with the rise and fall of internal rhythms. In and out. In and out. Becoming. Returning. Breathing. Being. ๐ŸŒ….
