I never know what day it is and I haven’t quite figured out how to be completely repulsive to the mosquitoes. The 83 plus bites I have are just now starting to heal. Quite the welcoming, huh? The idiosyncrasies of my new home are becoming more familiar. I am starting to feel more stabilized. These days I’m never fully quite clean. If I am, it’s for 10 minutes or so after bathing. It’s hot here,...
So, someone comes to you, asks for your advice, tells you their story, you tell them what you hear, they don’t like it and then they say you’re judging them. Oi. This is so confusing. What does one do? All I can do is tell the truth, tell you what I hear. Give you a reflection of what is coming out of your mouth. If only people could hear themselves. Who am I to judge? I don’t have the time or...
book to read.
I just finished The Only Dance There Is by Ram Dass. This book came into my life at yet again, the perfect moment. I recommend this read to anyone who is engaged in the dialogue. Well, anything written by him really. He also has footage on youtube and downloads on his website. Enjoy!
conversations on meditation
What are you doing in meditation? Mmm, just being with God. What are you thinking about? Nothing really- just being with my self, being with my energy, being with white light. Ohh! For me I go into nature with my imagination and then that leads me to the white light. Yeah, that’s perfect! That’s the space. Sounds like nature is your portal. Yeah, but when I’m there,...
I heard that in France aromatherapy is covered in the country’s health insurance. I also heard in Canada that holistic healing and bodywork is part of their health care. Wow! I’m impressed. These countries are in tune and actually acknowledge the intelligence of the body’s innate ability to heal? Rad. I’m really into aromatherapy. I use it in my sessions with clients,...
I love anything to do with hands. These “photographs” were made sans camera. Heat imprints onto film emulsion. Work by Gary Schneider.
So what feels like a lifetime in Mexico has actually only been two weeks. It’s been kind of crazy the spectrum of extremes I’ve been dancing on. Ecstatic bliss to utter hell. Side by side, sipping tea, taking company. This moon cycle has been intense, no? There has been a lot of movement happening in nature- especially here with Hurricane Joba on the watch. Living in the jungle is...
on the strawberry
The notion of painting is coming back to me. I knew it would eventually, but wasn’t really sure on when. I haven’t been able to even go near my brush. It’s sitting there, I can see it right now- next to my favorite pen and some colored markers. I guess the fact that I’m ready to go back to it means I’m healing. The thing behind the brush isn’t a thing anymore. It’s funny the duration of...
Lightworkers gotta stick together. We’re all on the same team.
Steve Jobs chillin’ in Padmasana, full lotus seat. One of this century’s greatest leaders. Thanks to his vision and life’s work, look at all we have gained. Thank you Steve Jobs, for living..
My friends here just made me hip to this king, Nezahualcoyotl. He’s my new favorite dude. Known as a sage, philosopher, warrior, architect, poet and ruler of the city-state of Texcoco in pre-Columbian Mexico. He was the only king who refused for animal sacrifices during times of ritual and ceremony. Instead, he offered butterflies and amaranth. I just ate amaranth for the first time the...
passive resistance with love against all that is unjust. for realz though, it’s the only thing that works. Gandhi is the man!
Dia Seis Xinalani
Morning Matte Ritual. Teaching in this room. (!!!) October 1 2011 Xinalani Full Moon is on Tuesday. We’re all waiting for her. It’s nice to live in a community of people who are so respectful of la natura and follow her guidance. It’s made me up my own level of consciousness and acknowledgement for her. I used to be able to pick flowers and leaves off their branches, but now when...
Day 1 Xinalani
Sun is about to set, infinite sea is all I see. La oficina. The traveling altar. The Sanctuary. September 26 2011 Xinalani Now this all seems a bit silly to me. The people I meet, the things I see, the calls I hear. Divine intervention, I believe this is her highest work. By quirk of cosmic design, here I am. I’ve arrived here in Xinalani earlier this afternoon, the panga driver brought...
Bienvenidos a Pachamama
I got a row to myself on the way here. Bob Marley on the tunes, pen and paper nearby, space, a gift from Tomas & Erin of the most beloved Krishnamurti, soft pillow in my lap, and my new toy- my first very own camera, a gift from my Auntie. All of the photos I’ve ever taken have been from borrowed cameras- feels good to have my own. Spirituality and technology are rapidly merging as a...
Hello my friends! I’ve created a new blog with a new direction. Storytelling of my travels, of the land I see, of the people I meet, of humanity. Please ixney remindersbychloe.tumblr.com. I hope you all are having a beautiful transition into Fall. It’s an exciting time to be alive! With love, Chloe Lake Wanaka, Fall 2006
