Evolution, Ancestors and Getting On With It with a Drink in Your Hand 

I had this posted on my Facebook page but decided to delete it and share it here just to expand it beyond the world of Facebook and add a bit more in. 

Speaking of where we are right now… ugh yes I’m feeling it all and I know I’m not the only one..

It’s clear we’re being pushed to live beyond survival patterns, not comfortable but necessary to grow through because it keeps us repeating the same shitty patterns keeping us in fear destroying ourselves and the planet. More than fair enough. Great change is needed, I agree. I wish we could do it pissed but we can’t. Such a shame. 

Yep, enough already. I agree again. 

Fuck isnt it challenging living in the world the way it is now, so fucking unnatural and unrealistic. We are all feeling it whether it’s conscious or not, I really believe that because of interconnectiveness. 
Evolution is uncomfortable and painful and I do wish it had a stop button at times because it’s a persistent painful bitch. We don’t even have time to scratch our arses between growth spurts. Take those bloody knees and keep crawling through your evolution bitch, doesn’t it feel like that sometimes?? Can we do it pissed? Nup you can’t be numb, feel it all. Ugh for fuck sake! 🍷

Realistically…. whether we like it or not, it really is stiff shit because we just have to embrace what is and rise to the occasion. Sounds harsh but it isn’t it’s just honest and I’ve felt this a thousand times moving through my own shit show. We need to stop complaining, feeling sorry for ourselves and just get on with it. It really is a waste of energy and again yes many times experienced. 

I know there’s a lot of fear up on the planet I get that loud and clear. I also get it’s fucking challenging to stay focused on the good stuff with so much shit happening. I have my days too, but (big arse sigh) we got to keep going. Grow from the fear, make fear your friend and all that and I hate saying it and I’m saying it to myself as well but fuck gotta keep moving cause..we’ve got too much to lose if we don’t and so does our children, our grandchildren and their children. 

Rage and grief is powerful and potent when channelled to create something positive and nourishing and it’s more than doable. A challenge because it’s heavy and really easy to stay in it but powerful once you know how to harness it, it moves shit and creates good shit. 

And what about people, Le fucken sigh man 😩 With so much disconnection relating with people it comes to no surprise we are being pushed to relate with ourselves and nature first, it’s like we’re remembering how we used to be connected to self and planet and then we bring that authenticity into relationships with others. Feeling our worth and life in the great web of life. Knowing this is where compassion lives for all beings not just humans that’s a delusion too many have chosen to live under and look what we’ve done? Horrendous abuse to animals and the earth like we own both. Fuck off, we don’t. 
We’re all changing. Relationships are changing, relating has changed and not all for the better. See how messy it is? Some connections will withstand the challenge many won’t. It’s a deeply personally thing evolution and knowing self and what we need and want and getting to know who we really are then reaching out and connecting with those with their hearts open. We want to feel safe now with people. We don’t want to be put down, abused or take shit how we once did and why should we? (We were probably pissed the reason why we took so much shit) 

Learning to love ourselves and the planet beyond what we have been because truthfully we aren’t and certainly haven’t been hence the state of the world. Evolution is messy but necessary and so is smoking a spliff between ‘what the fucks’.. 

A relationship with the planet, self and ancestors..so important to add in ancestry. 

There’s so many reasons for this which I will be sharing more on the sister page The Mystery of Woman. 

Just a share because I’m feeling so much around the heart and for the planet 🌏 and would’ve been better if I wrote this with a glass of wine in my hand but I can’t cause I gotta feel it all…

The Seer

Tormenting visions received from the seer

Raising the sword of truth hurting those she holds dear

Truth cannot be escaped even when we choose not to see

We must embrace boldly what we must heed

The raven speaks to us within the darkness 

Cocking it’s head from one side to another seeing through us with such sharpness

It’s presence confronting our most inner fears 

To heal wounds we have carried for too many years

With no words spoken I hear this

Vibrating through the darkness of the unbroken..


‘You seer you must speak to those that are not clear

Even to those you hold dear

Strip back what is not real

Surrender to your pain for you are here to heal

Tears you can shed but know this you must

Rely on everything pure and those few you trust’

Hush now child rest and weep

We will hold you closely and heal you as you sleep..’


The path of a seer is challenged to strengthen the inner sight 

To go beneath the surface to share wisdom to those that are brave enough to seek out their light

A channel for the old ones

A path walked between worlds

One of darkness and light

A path unfurled

The Burning Woman

Face to face with the wild she is yet to become

Yet she is

A detachment of mirrored quarrels

Pulling on strands of suffering

She chooses to relive

She walks a world of confusion

Torn into two distinct parts

Both maddening

Sacrificing the essence

Of both states that are already one

The madness is the objectifying of one

And the fire of another


Screaming for her freedom

Reckoning both

Wrapped in a box of dying perfection

She wants to murder

With cutting words of her tongue

And burn the edges with change


Cards that were dealt with lifetimes ago

Being a bitch and a lady

In a world that wants nothing but the death of her

And her wild

But not too much

It must be fashioned in a way that’s not hers

Owned by no one

Yet by the world

That tells her daily

She is not enough but

Too much to exist

She must conform to what she is told

Or be isolated forever in her happiness

Snake, Rattle and Bones – Serpent Women

A woman becomes a snake when she works through her emotional wounds growing her awareness around all of who she is.

It’s the self that has been created for her before she could even speak, and she walks this path to no fault of her own until she chooses to own herself.
She will remember who she really is as she becomes intimate with her wounds and fears and tends to them lovingly.
The serpent teaches her to go deeper and tells her there is no end to skin shedding as long as she walks the earth. Skin shedding is part of her journey to become one with the earth, to remember who she really is…ancient.
Though the serpent did warn her when she was called to walk the path she will become a rattle for most.

Serpent wisdom, ‘A rattle is a woman who sees with clarity and speaks the truth and with this wisdom it will make people feel.
They will feel things they do not want to feel and they will blame you for this.
Strength is needed why going deep is essential to know the wisdom you know and gather the strength you need to be a rattle…’

Not everyone can be a rattle, these women are chosen lifetime after lifetime to develop their abilities over and over again.
Her existence is devoted to the Mystery and to the earth, life after life.
These women must be clear because when the time comes for Earth Mother to call upon her Rattlers they have no choice but to answer the call, they are one with her, they are also serpent women.

The Rattlers must take up the task to live their fire and teach others to shed their skins because there will be a time in earths history where humankind must die and transmute into their ancient selves or die a physical death.
This is because humankind will have had lost their way.
It was shown long ago this will happen so an energy was birthed and sprouted into single manifestations to become earth mothers rattles.

These women live on the edge of society.
They will never fit and will be the ones who live close to the earth because serpent women need to be naked and close to Her to hear the medicine of our Mother just like snakes do.
They are here to remember and to help others to remember, so if you are blessed to be rattled by a Rattler give her thanks and listen to her wisdom.
Leave her be as she will always retreat back to her cave to listen and know when her wisdom has assisted your old self to become dust and bones return to her once more.
She will show you the way back home.
