” We are not human beings having a spiritual experience.
We are spiritual beings having a human experience. “
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
As the new Wavespell starts today, the White World Bridger archetype reminds us that not only we are humans, but also spiritual beings. While we may have different ways of bridging our worlds throughout our journey on this beautiful planet Earth, there are experiences that are common to most, as being in Nature, or in prayer and meditation. Different cultures also use sacred tools, symbols, and the power of ceremony to connect with the world of energy, as a way of integrating both worlds.
One of the tools that I personally love and have been using for many years are the chumpi stones, which are carved stones created by the indigenous people of the Peruvian Andes. My friend Drake Bear Stephen just published a new book called The Chumpi Stone Guidebook, where he gives a great overview about their meaning, original uses and modern practices. If you have a set of chumpi stones and want to learn about different ways you can use them, or you are interested in Andean cosmovision and want to find out what they are, you can check Drake’s book here.
Happy New Lunar Year of the Metal Ox!
As the Year of the Rat ended last week, many cultures in Asia celebrated the beginning of Lunar Year of the Metal Ox. Ox represents hard working, patience, and strength. The invitation this year is to be clear with our goals, plan accordingly and follow the steps with persistence and determination so we can get what we want.
The 12 zodiac animals are: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat (or Sheep), Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig (or Boar).
The twelve signs in Chinese astrology complement each year with one of these five elements: Water, Wood, Fire, Earth and Metal and the same sign-element combination repeats itself every 60 years. Previous Ox years were 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009 and the next one will be in 2033. Combined with the Metal element, the last Metal Ox Year was in 1961.
One of the ways to bridge our worlds is also by learning about other cultures and exploring symbolic ways to interpret reality.
