Erin's Schedule 🌈PLUS Quick Tips for Peace of Mind!

Hello beloved readers!

I hope you feel warmth in your heart today and feel love and connected, no matter how you choose to spend this weekend.  I know many of us are honoring special people that have passed away. May the spirits of those folks continue to touch our lives in positive and inspiring ways.

To honor the New Moon in Gemini and my loved ones who have passed, including my dear father and my spiritual teacher, I made 12 sage smudge sticks this weekend. I walked into the subalpine valley, meditated with the sagebrush, and offered tobacco in the traditional fashion of native peoples, giving thanks and asking permission to take some of the plant. I then sat by the fire, played Indian kirtan music, and trimmed and wrapped the bundles. I was so happy to make these for my friends and family, to help us all keep our homes and selves clear and serene.

Please take one of these virtual smudgesticks for yourself! They are now drying and are amazing!

Quick Tips for Peace of Mind in Pandemonium

This time of “pandemonium” has been up, down, and all around. Like everyone else, this has been a mix of fantastic silver linings, blended with confusion, joy, inspiration, grief, and above all, change. Everything is constantly changing. This, we all know. Yet, the corona pandemic has been a time of unprecedented global change in our post-modern world, and no matter how spiritually fit we are, we are human and must feel all the feels. This has been an incomprehensible shared experience. It is one massive adjustment individually and collectively, and that requires time, space, support, and respect for the process.

Here are some helpful reminders if you’ve been needing an attitude adjustment – these are all things that work for me regularly, and continue to see me through now and in all times of huge change:

-          Make your gratitude list (in your head, verbally, on the back of an envelope, in your journal).

-          Stay in Present Time. You’ll notice this one is needed when you feel burned out on the question, “What is going to happen?” No one knows. Let it all unfold.

-          Feel your feelings. Cry. Process. Write. Stretch. Call a friend. Get support. It’s okay – and necessary - to allow your upset to well up. This is not a time for spiritual bypass.

-          Make simple diet or lifestyle changes to support your mental health. Now more than ever, we need clear channels for our inner guidance to flow through, giving us ease and peace of mind.

-          Trust the Great Unfolding. Even if you feel mistrust toward a person, idea, or situation, we can always trust the Great Unfolding of What Is. In the understanding of the Absolute, this is ultimately perfect, and that Consciousness is manifesting exactly what is needed. We are not separate from all that is.

-          Go easy on yourself. This is not a time for criticizing your appearance, body, fitness regimen. We are all doing the past we can. If you are guided to exercise or eat differently, do so – let it arise naturally. Yet, if it’s all you can do to get out of bed in the morning and take a deep breath, that is enough. (Actually, even getting out of bed is optional; breathing is enough.)

I am so grateful for you. See you on the journey.

With love,

Erin

Women's Spiritual Counseling Group - Thursdays, 9am PT


Sophia - Alex Grey


Dear Women Readers,
 
Are you feeling a call for deep feminine support? 
I'm offering an alternative and affordable form of
spiritual counseling for women.


Announcing openings to join the Thursday Women's Group! 9am PT weekly

Receive deep spiritual support and counseling with a small group of sister-goddesses. Remember... we are all emanations of the Divine Feminine. We all have the Triple Goddess - maiden, mother, crone - within and without. She guides our every movement, and we are Her.

In recent sessions, the group has been focusing on women's spirituality, self-healing, and psycho-spiritual holding. Some of the topics we have been discussing include sexuality, body image, aging, mothers and fathers, cultural misogyny, grief and loss, recovery from codependence, boundaries, and more.

We may fold in discussions of the tarot and other ways of knowing, intuition, the enneagram, the inner child, and creative expression. We will continue this work starting this week, and we have an opening for a few new women members.

Details

Thursdays, 9am to 10:15am Pacific (75 minutes, weekly)
The group will last four weeks. These sessions will be 4-6 participants. 
May 14, May 21, May 28, June 3

Each group asks for a four-week commitment. After four weeks, the timing will be reevaluated together. We may very well continue the group.

Cost
Series of Four Group Sessions: Sliding Scale $150 to $250

PayPal, Card, or Venmo


Description
In this four-week group, you will receive the holding and spiritual direction you most need at this time in a supportive, loving environment. We will adhere to group confidentiality. As a facilitator, teacher and spiritual therapist, I will create a safe container for you and the other women. I will guide you – sometimes gently, sometimes with fierce grace – to self-heal and examine your intuitive and knowing, your fears and state of consciousness.


Each session will begin with a few minutes’ presentation on a prominent theme that I sense the group is facing, i.e. principles and tools for self-healing and awakening. This will be followed by consulting and dialoguing, one-on-one, with me in the group setting.


You will learn and grow through your own one-on-one work with me, by witnessing other’s processes, and through your own wholehearted presence. The understanding and support will be amplified by the group alchemy.



Prerequisites:
  • Having had some background in your own personal spiritual development and or therapy or counseling.
  • A brief check-in with Erin by email to confirm your interest and enrollment.
  • Agreement to group confidentiality and guidelines
  • A willingness to listen and witness others’ processes of psychospiritual unfoldment, to examine your own self and practice self-reflection on a regular basis; a commitment to develop an inner life and connection to self.
 It is for women who would like to:
  • Grow in connection and self-understanding with a group of women
  • Have access to affordable counseling
  • Benefit from a group shared experience
  • Supplement individual counseling

If you are called, I look forward to hearing from you as soon as possible.

With love,

Erin

Testimonials:

“This course made a big difference for me! I’m more in tune with my intuition. It helped hone my skills.” ~ Robyn R.
“Erin’s class brought the cards alive for me.  Through her wisdom and example they have become friends, mentors and guides.  Her teachings unlocked the cards inner wisdom, helping me to connect to my own intuition and “something bigger” that comes through the tarot.” ~ Keith H.
“I learned so much. I highly recommend it.” ~ Linda R.
"I started Erin's tarot mastery course very spiritually depleted and was simply looking for a place to feed my spirit and maybe learn something new, but I got so much more. Three months later I am giving tarot readings professionally, but more importantly, my cup has been filled so that I have the vigor and presence of mind to be of service to other people.” ~ Amanda L.
"Erin's approach to Tarot encourages self reflection and our own intuition.  Of course we learn what the cards mean, but this is beyond what you can learn from memorization.  Through her guidance, she encourages us to trust ourselves and what we "see."  I've given myself readings for many years, it wasn't until this class, that I was able to put together the spreads, the cards, and my own perception.  Now, instead of reading from a book first, my reading comes first and the book is truly just for reference. I have so much trust in my own interpretation, thank you, Erin!" ~ Quinn M.

Rebirth, Quarantine, and the Inner Spring



Wherever You Are, Is Perfect
A quote I've long appreciated, oft attributed to Ralph Waldo Emerson is, “It’s not the destination, it’s the journey.”

Yet these days I’ve decided to turn it on its ear. Let’s make it the following:

“The destination is the journey.” Meaning. Wherever you are, it’s perfect. You are perfection. You are that which you seek. You yourself are the destination.

I’ve noticed on the collective consciousness stage that folks are energetically leaving their quarantines even though the shelter in place hasn’t been lifted. People are wanting to travel more in their minds, and bodies, even locally. They are socializing more, trying to find new ways to fill up the space, to bring a sense of what used to be “normal” back into their lives. Perhaps it’s the spring weather; perhaps it’s boredom, a need for distraction. Perhaps it’s simply human nature.

However, many souls are not ready to focus on the outer world yet. You will know that you are in this group if you feel confused or garbled when you’re at the grocery store, when you’re trying to have too many virtual social gatherings, or neighborhood six-to-ten-feet away chit-chats. You might feel like you get clobbered by externalizing your energy. You might get easily fatigued. It might show up in your dreams, imploring you to pay attention.

Last week, I dreamed I was being pulled out of quarantine, and my soul balked. It wasn’t ready. I was attempting to secure a reservation for a weeklong silent retreat, to go back inside. Upon analyzing the dream, it became clear that, even though the earth is laughing in flowers right now, and coyotes are (literally) howling in North Beach SF, for us humans, it is an Inner Spring this year. A deepening connection to the Self, rather than the World, civilization, unnecessary activity. We are springing forth, from the inside first. The destination is us, and we ourselves are the journey.

Sheltering In Place
Time Out of Time

Many of us are in a gestation period, pregnant with something new. It needs a bit more time to cook – that symbolic bun in the oven. Some of us have already birthed a new idea, project, vision during quarantine, and that new baby needs a bit more protection before it is trotted around the neighborhood and exposed to all and sundry outside. Think of a snake that has shed its old skin, a death and rebirth process. It takes time for the new skin to grow, and the animal needs this coat to form before revealing itself to risky elements. Sensitivity is high. 

I find it notable that the animal associated with this pandemic (whether science or symbol) is a bat. In many indigenous traditions, Bat represents Rebirth, and the shamanic, symbolic death of the healer. Jamie Sams and David Carson write of Bat in Medicine Cards: The Discovery of Power Through the Ways of Animals (Bear and Company, 1999), “If Bat has appeared in your cards today, it symbolizes the need for a ritualistic death of some way of life that no longer suits your new growth pattern. This can mean a time of letting go of old habits, and of assuming the position in life that prepares you for rebirth, or in some cases initiation. In every case, Bat signals rebirth of some part of yourself or the death of old patterns...”
 
These processes of rebirth constitute "time out of time," and take time. In the recent newsletter from the ashram of Sri Ramana Maharshi in Tiruvannamalai, India, the writers describe Ramana’s various retreats under massive epidemics of the first half of the 20th Century, from cholera, typhoid, bubonic plague. The ashram was shut down to the bare minimum of activity during these times. The sage fondly remembers these months as some of the ashram community's happiest, most peaceful times. A time of deepening and lessening of distractions.

I know many of us absolutely need to get back to work in the world, financially and psychologically. I completely support this and hope this does happen as quickly as possible for folks. Yet, we can also keep in mind: This quarantine is going to pass quicker than we think, even if it chronologically and paradoxically lasts longer than initially thought. When we look back on 2020, and these inner months, we’ll realize that it was restful, healing, revealing. It is an opportunity, and it’s moving fast. We can make best use of the time, and not opt-out of the inner journey before the miracle occurs.
