I woke up to an email from Highland Park. It was lovely, light, and friendly. It made me feel like he cared.That was a mistake. For me. Emotionally.
I cried the entire way to work. Parked my car. Worked.
Afterward, I attended a teacher training at a non-profit bringing poetry to inner-city youth. There were only two of us there. Me and this other woman. She was interesting; long black hair with Betty Page bangs and a raspy come- hither voice.
I had no idea who she was, but she was cool. She teaches poetry to kids in juvenile detention centers as well as teaching it to regular folks through UCLA extension.
We both needed to put money in our meters at the same time, so we walked together. I asked her if I could see her perform her poetry someday. She told me I could; she was doing a performance that week for a psychedelic crowd, oddly enough. I found myself telling her that, wow, that was really interesting because I just signed up to participate in an ayahuasca ceremony coming up! She asked me when. I told her. She asked me who with? And I told her.
That was when we both almost shit out pants.
She was apprenticing with the shaman performing my ceremony and had, in fact, been in ceremony with her, all weekend.
Of all the gin joints…
I mean, come on!!!
As we bugged out about the divine synchronicity of it all, a June Beetle began to hover near us. Those are the giant green beetles that sometimes appear in Los Angeles. Usually, where there is more vegetation. Not so much in a concrete Urban Jungle in the middle of K-Town.
The beetle would NOT leave us alone. It kept landing in our hair and on our arms. We had to run away from it and back into the training.
Although there is naturally a great attraction to spiritual matters, June Bug/Beetle will show how to balance and remain grounded. His wisdom teaches to navigate what is hidden in the sub/unconscious realms. Pay attention to nocturnal activities: dream time, journeys, and moments of waking, along with meditational impressions. Expect emotions to come to the surface as well as being emotionally tested to clean and clear the way for new and better things. Mental, spiritual, emotional movement appears in sets of 3. Pay attention to synchronicities. He demonstrates exterior strength and fortitude and the use of a tough outer shell when needed. June Bug/Beetle demonstrates a higher intuition connection and a keen sense of discernment in all areas. He will show how to dig for answers to reveal the truths you need. He shows how to move with a sharp sense of timing. His medicine represents opportunities to recycle, reinvent and repurpose what you have, know, think and act.This self-reinvention may include participating in larger groups to expand knowledge and awareness. A balanced diet includes plenty of fruits, vegetables, and grains. May or June is a significant indicator of events. The period for June Bug/Beetle has various stages. Take notice of circumstances, dreams, wishes and encounters that may happen within the next two to five days. In 3 to 4 weeks lessons will be coming to swift manifestation. Be ready. In the last two to three years, have you been inspired to do something, have unfinished projects or endeavors that have been delayed? He will show how to progress forward as it is time to emerge.
I can’t argue with that.
Thank you June Beetle!
I guess I am doing the Ayahuasca Ceremony.
