This is the latest note from my friend in Sweden and the reuniting of the masculine & feminine. Casey
Dear Friends,

In lieu of the The Tree of life Celebration I have written this pledge of Love please pass it on if you feel inclined.

Please join us on face book. The Tree of Life Celebration (Celebrating the reunification of the divine masculine and divine feminine… in to ONE)

Love and Gratitude

Petter

 

A pledge of Love

 

In May 2010 eight men of all walks of life, gathered in Småland, Sweden. This was to be a journey in to the Collective subconscious in an attempt to break down the walls of suppression that the false masculine has been holding over the divine feminine for the last 5000 years.

We went through a process of accountability and responsibility both for our personal and our collective relationship to all feminine, including our own feminine within. We went deep in to every daily aspect… and to the darkest corners of history.

We then asked for Forgiveness. We asked for forgiveness, unconditionally, from the deepest part of our souls to all women and the divine feminine.

When I came home, I asked for forgiveness from my wife and best friend… I now, revere her intuition, see her love and hear her voice.

A shift in the Underworld had clearly taken place. I have in the months since, held circle’s directly in front of women, going through the process of accountability and responsibility… asking for forgiveness. It has been the most powerful work I have ever participated in. We are severing ties in the collective subconscious, ties we never thought could be broken. I am in deep, deep Gratitude to the Divine Feminine…

 

I am asking for forgiveness.


As a man and a representative for the masculine I want to take full responsibility and accountability for all that I, as an individual in this lifetime, in the conscious, sub conscious and all dimensions, has done to women and the feminine in disrespect to the divine.

I take full responsibility and accountability for my relationship and how I have treated, my mother, my sister’s, my grandmother’s, my wife, my daughter’s, my girlfriends, and all women I have ever come in contact with. I take responsibility for all known and unknown control I have used to keep the feminine energy down. I take responsibility for all disrespectful thoughts of women I have ever had. I take full responsibility for my violent acts on animal life, nature and mother earth.

I apologize and ask the divine feminine, all women, all feminine energy for forgiveness.

As a man and a representative of the collective masculine I take full responsibility for all violent acts that has ever taken place on the divine feminine. I take full responsibility for all violent acts, wars, rapes, torture in the name of man, that has ever taken place. I take responsibility for the massive suppression, manipulation and deception that has systematically been used and is used to keep the feminine down. As a representative of the collective masculine, I take full responsibility and accountability for the rape and violence on our divine mother earth.

As a representative of the collective masculine I ask all women and the divine feminine for forgiveness. I ask for forgiveness from the deepest part of the collective masculine soul.

I am so, so sorry! We are so, so sorry!

 

My Pledge of Love


This is A pledge of worship, support and love to the Divine Feminine, femininity and all women. You are the power of Creation. I am here to revere, love and support you. I am the water that the plant needs in order to grow. This is my role as a representation of the true Masculine. You are revered, loved and supported from the true Masculine as we are once again ONE.

THERE ARE NO WORDS THAT CAN DESCRIBE THE LOVE I HAVE FOR YOU.

This is a letter to my friend but it might be a note to your inner self too.  We are all going through very difficult transitions in order to become full joyful living.  Many of us are watching loved ones depart or helping them transition out of their bodies and their pain.  If you are opening for the first time to your own emotion or to ever deeper experiences of emotion, this is a very intense time for you. I hope these words can inspire you to continue in your search for meaning and feeling in your daily life.  The warrior archetypes are dismantling now and emotion is fully available to the male body like never before.  I send love and support to all the men who are opening and embracing this wild new territory.


We are amazing products of our body’s ancient history archive, our learned and acquired emotional experiences, our mental assessments and our wild card cosmic connectivity with it all.
This is truly an amazing moment in or out of Time and Space with a lot of no time, all time “experientiality”.

And on top of that your Cat Lydia is probably the only person who has ever loved you absolutely unconditionally and wanted to be with you always, no matter what!  She’s taught you about the underlying possibility that Love really is the answer and maybe Love is all that matters.  But more than that – she gave you the experience of it in your everyday life.  She gives you back as much as you give her!  Such a balanced flow.  Love for Love.
She also gave you the opportunity to cleanse your tear ducts.  That was one way to start your own inner flow moving.

When was the last time your body touched ocean water? When was the last time your bare feet touched the dirt (not sand)?  When was the last time you stood in the rain and let yourself get soaked?  When was the last time you were naked in the morning sun?
Find something that feeds you – in addition to Lydia…  Something that isn’t weaker than you.

Nature can do that in some places still.

I’m finding that I typically get my “juice” from people but they have so little anymore.  I need to develop ways of nourishing myself by breathing in creative ways (maybe yogic or spiritual practices can show me how) for more oxygen content, absorbing the early morning sun on my skin for Vitamin D and other benefits, reading for the fun of being entertained, moving randomly (same time off computer moving, that I spend on it in one position), bouncing for lymphatic health (even more important than blood), and eating real organic food in higher quantities.

For me the tears don’t come unless I feel some cosmic sorrow for humanity or I really dive into some physical pain until I find a little girl who just cries because it hurts.  Emotions do not usually make me cry, I am not ruled by emotions-run-a-muck or overloading on the happy side either.

If “Old Yeller” makes you cry – use it to clean out your tear ducts once in a while. (BTW-typical codependency clue is you can feel animals or abused people more than yourself- from Bradshaw on the Family or Codependent No More)

One thing I’ve observed:  Silence comes from unending rage, Rage follows unresolvable anger, anger emerges from grief that we can’t change what’s going on for our own wellbeing, grief grows from wounds that keep getting opened.  Wounds come from our experience of the deep unresolved emotion of others that keep reoccurring.

Healthy Deep emotion is a learned experience that happens in a safe place.  Mostly we learn deep emotion from the pain and suffering of others around us as a kid.  Often in silence we simply feel what they feel and it sets our hard drive for that kind of software, then later when we have the mental tools to figure it out we try to put the pieces of the puzzle into some kind of picture that brings us peace in any way that can work to allow us to nourish ourselves in better ways.

Your body is talking to you about this topic, just keep following the leads to its needs and you’ll get somewhere that matters to you.  Everything is archived by your body, whether you know it or not.  So all those physical experiences of it are unopened mail.  (hum the aol tune here.)  You’ve got mail.

And just for your mind to hear it:  Holy shit that’s a long list of blows to the status quo if nothing else!!  I suggest that you might be inheriting the family “unclaimed mail”.  Maybe take a little time and write (with a pen and paper-one sheet for each person) each person’s biggest fear, biggest wound, biggest grief, biggest remorse, biggest failure, biggest unfulfilled dream, and see if they don’t move out of your body and onto the paper.

Then write a REAL obituary for each of them.  Let them be real and let all their experiences belong to them.  Maybe share it with the younger generation still alive so they don’t have to “wear” the family’s unopened mail.  Put a little chili pepper in the stew of family history.

And if you do, I would love to read what you write.  I love you, in many ways.  Casey

For about 3 weeks we get to experience Venus in Pisces.  The Goddess of Love, swimming in her own Neptunian birthplace, provides a luscious environment for sensuality, love, and harmony.  She does have a shadow side of wrathful vengence and fury if her love is denied, thwarted or challenged so mind your ‘p’s and ‘q’s when dealing with other’s hearts.    Venus enters Pisces on Thursday morning at 4:10 am.  Notice what and how things happen for you in the attraction/manifestation of projects.  I like the energy of pisces, its quite comfortable for me and having venus and jupiter in the sign of pisces makes it a really really BIG experience of energy.  Make friends with the non linear, nonphysical aspect of pisces and allow yourself to practice nonphysical awareness training inside where it really counts. Pisces is much easier to identify if the resonant field is in movement.  If you find yourself confused about what’s what its most likely due to a stagnant energy field that is not moving much.  Stir it up and you’ll find answers and understanding much faster!  Have fun!

Saturn (the big daddy, rules and regulations) is just finishing up a more than 2 year stint through Virgo, which is the SHADOW of the last 2160 years! Just what it sounds like – the dark gookies, the hidden agendas, the unexpressed/repressed/oppressed/suppressed.  But also the mind at its most manic, trying to figure everything out, manipulating everything, masking all authentic actions.  And what I call the shadow of the shadow where the “other” responds with a huge no and over reacts to 2 thousand years of b.s. by some big overplayed card slamming onto the table in repressed/suppressed/oppressed over reaction.  And it was probably about time for some change anyway…  you just can’t tell anymore if there was ever a victim or perpetrator or only just overplayed mistakes in emotional misunderstanding in the pendulum swing from one life to the next. Anyway Saturn moves into Libra today!  Now it will play out in the relationship arena.  Maybe you were starting to see the Libra context (relationship) beginning to develop.  Anyway Saturn forces its topic of the day up to the top of the list and demands that it be handled first and in those last few days/weeks of a sign the “shit hits the fan” and those on the growth path try to “squeeze blood out of the current turnip” so as not to miss anything.  Saturn will go back into Virgo for 3 months in early 2010 so it will be interesting to see if the patterns of late reemerge then.
We also have Pluto, Mars, and Saturn (all the warrior energies) playing big cards while Uranus (the radical shake up artist) gooses their asses into eccentric behaviors.  Should be quite a show!  I’m amazed and relieved that we haven’t had any global wild card warriors hit the table.  It would be good to divert the repetition of history on this one.

Re:  The People’s Theater presentation of Modigliani in Santa Monica

“Shaking up Passion” by Casey Wood

The I Ching says that the artist is responsible for creating the directional signposts that lead a culture to its next evolutionary destination.  Such a monumental potential resting in those brushes and pens!  Leading a cultural movement most assuredly first requires that the culture be shaken up and shocked into noticing that the art even exists.

Modigliani’s passionate rebellion of soul definitely shook up his neighborhood (both banks!) but later the younger artists were experimenting with hashish and absinthe to try to emulate what they perceived to be his creative source.  Mostly the alcohol and drugs just ate up creative energies that might have been brought to birth or fruition.  But still Modigliani’s passion did make its way into history and a stream of upheaval did follow his life.  He did make some kind of difference.  And his life did trigger and ignite the passion of others who wrote of him and strove to find his level of passion.

In the aquarian reality of our 21st century everything is so transient, already the culture and the artists are shaking things up on so many levels – its sometimes difficult to find a way to be radical.  Finding your own way to make a difference and your own way to be radically passionate is a sacred calling.

Aquarius energy is very non-personal yet intimate in its communication – deeply passionate for change.  Our new arrival in the Age of Aquarius forces us to do what we know and find like minds to do it with or at the very least radically shake up anyone who thinks they’ve got stability.  Aquarian reality must include community and specifically the heart of the community.  The values and creativity of the 21st century will be well suited for theater and film, musical groups, and intangible forms of expression.  We want to experience the NEW.  We want to feel something change inside ourselves, and we’d like to share that experience with others.

It’s good to find your own passion so that you don’t accidentally become the community’s shadow.  It seems to me that Modigliani became the expression of the shadow of the Parisian arts in 1916.  Monet was building Giverny, Picasso was commercially viable and Modigliani showed up on the other side of town and the tracks.  He exposed the underbelly of the artist’s passion.  The raw uncensored, un – ”successful” deep dive into a conscious exploration of the depths of scorpionic black, sexual, decadent reality.  A pool every artist knows is there but each must work to keep their eyes open while they swim.  Few come up for air and go down again.  And even fewer tell or show the journey in a way that moves the culture to change.  It’s a dicey territory but someone always does it.  Every era has its deep divers.

Once when I was uncontrollably diving into that black pool a friend of mine gently took my head in his hands and said, “don’t go there, its animated!”  It was my first clue that I could choose whether or not I went all the way into the darkness.  What a revelation!  Choice.

Modigliani strikes me as one who never knew he had choice but rather was compelled to play the cards in his deck one after another into oblivion.  A compulsive outplaying of cultural shadow material.

Dana wants to find the deep dive, locate its edge and surf that edge into a public production.  I salute that passionate drive that takes us all into new territory of the heart so that we can all feel deeper, and broader and more fully what has meaning in our lives.

Each production of The Peoples Theater strives to take the cast on an emotional adventure of consciousness into personally uncharted territories of the Self so that what we experience together opens a potential for the audience to taste the adventure.  We want more heart and more soul to be visible – tangible in the room.

The Peoples Theater gives a group of folks the buzz of creating together and gives you (as the community) the experience of sharing that with us.  Thanks for joining us in the exploration.  We hope you’ll find your passion and express it thoroughly.

Emotions 101 by Casey Wood

310-430-9283, www.chironbabies.com

EMOTIONS ARE WATER SOLUBLE

Drink more water. 16oz. or more immediately after or during an emotional blast will help your body cope with the overload.  Your shoulders may actually relax within a half hour or so.  If you do not drink extra water you can feel later or next morning as if you have a hangover.  That feeling is toxic overload.  When you feel achey muscles, headache, nausea, tingly hips, thighs, forearms, or aching elbows these may be simply a toxin overload.  Your elimination systems need help.  You can help your body in several ways.  Your skin is your largest elimination organ so anything you do to cleanse and invigorate it will be beneficial.  Shower and brush all over with a loofa sponge, take a long hot bath with a cup of Epsom Salts, Sea Salt, or Baking Soda.  Add you favorite bath oils or bath color, enjoy beautiful smells, treat yourself to a sensual experience.

Silence releases and clears the emotions.  Allow your self to sit still and be quiet.  Learn to meditate-whether it’s walking, sitting, or rhythmic movement.  Love yourself into a peaceful state.

Emotions are either expanding (love) or contracting (fear). Examples of expanding emotions are love, self-confidence, joy, or excitement.  These emotions create chemicals in your body that are beneficial to you, like enhancing brain functions, and strengthening/stimulating the immune system.  Contracting emotions (for example fear, anger, anxiety) create physical chemical toxins, which the kidneys, liver, and other areas of the body must filter and remove from your system.  The muscles along the top of the shoulder are one area where these emotional toxins are collected.  This happens immediately after the emotional blast-whether it’s your own emotions or someone else’s blasting you.

If you know how you feel, the emotions are yours.  If you are confused about how you feel or can’t seem to change the state, chances are VERY high that you are empathetically feeling the radiant emotional fields of those around you.  This may be because those individuals are sending the emotion outside their bodies by disowning their own emotions and you are experiencing them or because you are co-dependently agreeing to be responsible for that which is not yours.

Healthy loving touch is your best tool for health. Hug and touch those you love.  Remember touching is good for your entire being-whether you are giving or receiving it-so give your love away.  That way it will expand and strengthen your heart as well as your personal relationships.

Your emotions are not you-but they are important. They are transient energy states, which you can learn to calmly experience internally.  All day long we are exposed to the radiant emotional fields of the people around us.  Emotions flow through our bodies giving us momentary sensations, unless we are filled with old stuck feelings.  If we are holding uncried tears in our cellular structure any emotions that try to pass through us will be held and amplified by our own emotional history.  By slowing down to truly feel our emotions they are released, so don’t be afraid to feel, just keep breathing and be aware.  The experience of them is actually the release in process.  Be gentle with yourself and lighten up-expand with love and wellbeing.

Casey’s Basic Tune-Up Meditation

  • Tune in to the Goddess/Earth/Love energies below your feet.  Imagine a clear path between your feet and the luscious core of the earth.  Nothing gets between you and your mother.  Now allow those vibrant revitalizing energies to gently flow through your feet, lets, butt, torso, head, and arms – shining out to support heaven.

  • Tune in to the God/Sky/Love energies above your head.  Imagine a clear path between your crown and cosmic knowledge.  Nothing gets between you and your father.  Now allow those dynamic energies to gently flow through your head and neck, down through the torso and filling the arms and legs, shining on down to support earth.
  • In case it hasn’t happened yet, ask for any interfering energies to be dissolved or removed from your being in all dimensions, all frequencies, all aspects of time and space, and any other way of perceiving yourself.  Now feel this as your home base.  Allow yourself to run higher voltage, especially in neck, ankles, and wrists.  Give yourself permission to turn on the juice.
  • Ask for any part of you that has been overworking to find its appropriate participation in your being, and for any dormant part to wake up and get on with it.
  • Request that all aspects of you now update to the present moment (condensing past and future), harmonizing and integrating all that has just changed.
  • Now sit with this wonderful feeling, allowing your self to know the truth of Being. Once you are in the fullness of this energy begin to radiate out to support all sentient beings in co-creating peace and abundance on earth.

If you have any questions or difficulties with this meditation please call.
