The Magic Horse ~ with comments by Amara

To have the courage to accept a quality which one does not like in oneself, and which one has chosen to repress for many years, is an act of great courage. But if one does not accept the quality, then it functions behind one’s back. Marie – Louise Von Franz

The Magic Horse

There once was a king (OBAMA- THE OLD KING IN DECLINE ) who had a beautiful daughter. (USA- THE NATION IN DARK FEMININE – STUCK IN STATUS QUO, TOO PASSIVE, TOO POLITE) When he was old enough to get married, he invented a very clever riddle. He fed a flea so long it became as fat as a camel. (USA – OUT OF BALANCE WITH GREED) Then he killed it, took the skin and showed it everywhere, and said whoever recognized what animal it came from should have his daughter. (THE OLD KING SHOWS THE SKIN – THE SURFACE).

Naturally, no one guessed it was a flea. But one day an ugly beggar (TRUMP THE NEW KING) came and he wanted to solve the riddle. They wouldn’t let him into the castle, but the beggar insisted he had the right to enter. As soon as the old king (OBAMA) showed him the skin, the beggar says, ‘But naturally, it’s the skin of a flea.’ The king was furious but had to give his daughter to this horrible man. (TRUMP- SEES UNDER THE SKIN, SEES THROUGH THE KING’S FLAWS. OBAMA THE OLD KING SUBMITS TO THE WILL OF PEOPLE.) More …

There once was a king who had a beautiful daughter. When he was old enough to get married, he invented a very clever riddle. He fed a flea so long it became as fat as a camel. Then he killed it, took the skin and showed it everywhere, and said whoever recognized what animal it came from should have his daughter.

Naturally, no one guessed it was a flea. But one day an ugly beggar came and he wanted to solve the riddle. They wouldn’t let him into the castle, but the beggar insisted he had the right to enter. As soon as the old king showed him the skin, the beggar says, ‘But naturally, it’s the skin of a flea.’ The king was furious but had to give his daughter to this horrible man.

The beggar turned out to be a div, a destructive ogre who eats people. He took the princess, who was in great despair. She went to the stable and cried on the neck of her favorite little horse. The horse said it would help; she must take it with her, along with a mirror, a comb, some salt, and a carnation.

When they came to the ogre’s cave it was full of the bones of people he had eaten. The horse said they had to flee. The div came out of the cave and followed them into a snowstorm he had caused. The little horse told the princess to throw behind her first the carnation, then the salt, the comb, and last the mirror. Each turned into some obstacle which delayed the div, but in the end he always caught up with them again.

The mirror turned into a river ; the div came to the river, and called to the princess, asking her how she crossed it. The princess said she bound a big stone around her neck and jumped into the water. The div quickly did the same, but even this didn’t stop him. Finally the horse said there was nothing else to do but go and fight the div itself, so the horse jumped into the water. The princess stood on the shore and watched how the water foamed and turned red and she thought her beloved horse helped had been killed. But after some time it came to the surface and said now that she was safe; it had killed the div, but now she had to kill it, the horse. She had to throw its head to one side, its four legs into the four directions, it’s intestines on the other side. And then she had to sit with her children under its ribs.

The princess said, ‘How can I kill you when you have saved me?’ But the horse insisted. And when she did, out of the legs came golden poplars with emerald leaves, and out of the intestines came villages with fields and meadows, and under the ribs appeared a golden castle. From the head came a beautiful silvery river and the whole neighborhood turned into a kind of paradise. There the princess found her husband.

WHAT DO YOU THINK THIS STORY SAYS ABOUT THE MASCULINE AND FEMININE PLAYERS IN OUR RECENT ELECTION? WHO WOULD YOU NAME AS CHARACTERS, AND WHAT DOES THE STORY MEAN?

While I am not suggesting life is a simple as this fairy tale, the principles in ancient stories say much about what must be done in the face of great change.

Next week, I will post my perspective, including how this story relates to our recent election and the battle between the dark feminin goddess and the dark king.

Till then, I leave you with this:

To have the courage to accept a quality which one does not like in oneself, and which one has chosen to repress for many years, is an act of great courage. But if one does not accept the quality, then it functions behind one’s back.

How We Like To Be Loved

Posted on
couple kissing

What would happen if you allowed the men in your life to love every bit of you? Can you imagine having men who wish to provide whatever they can; able to take you into realms of pleasure that thrills you to the bone? Can you picture the kind of guy who’s turned on every time he makes just the right move at just the right time?

Here’s what I’ve noticed about certain men; when given the right kind of clues, they’re absolutely eager to delight us.

But why do men seldom succeed as much as they could? Why do they frequently fall short, leaving things unsaid and untouched? And why do they so often seem clueless, asking us what we want?

In my experience, training a man to catch our signals of desire is a matter of learning how to inspire him rather than asking for or demanding what we want. Yes, we can ask, and sometimes even demand that he steps up or slows down. But there are better ways to inspire men to love us the way we’d like to be loved.

First, keep in mind what inspires men most, especially during sex: More …

Experience the Tranquility & Supreme Aloha Beauty of Kauai

We hope you will join us for a special women’s healing retreat on the Garden Isle of Kauai, Hawaii this October. At this retreat you will have an extraordinary and rare opportunity to work with Qigong Master Angela Yan. Angela is a world-renowned Buddhist energy healer and we are THRILLED she accepted our invitation. Read on to discover more about Angela and her amazing healing work.

‘A natural life is 120 years. This should be common. Yet, why do people die
early? They do not follow the law. They do not know how to harmonize their
natural self. You must find where your personality comes from in order to
purify and cleanse. Knowing who you are and where you come from helps
you find and follow the right path. To heal, you must understand yourself
more, regardless of your path or religion, in order to reach enlightenment.’

The Outer Limits of Intimacy

Posted on
images-1

People who are well nourished and greatly inspired by their relationships live at the outer limits of intimacy. They not only dream of but deeply crave what is beyond easy grasp. They know deep fulfillment comes from extending and stretching the borders of what is already known. If you want the most from your relations you must realize it lives outside your comfort zones.

Deep love exists on the fringes of plain view. It thrives beyond what is already known and being done. A great relationship, and real intimacy requires a new approach. Anytime you don’t know what to do differently, your answer is to hunt for another approach. More …

A Soft Burn of Yearning Love

Kauai tunnel-3

Why I can’t stop offering sacred sexuality

I like inviting the soft burn of yearning love to come out from hiding. Even the most bruised and tender spirits, the ones who’ve just about given up, the ones who feel tired of losing, or who don’t even know they’re caged in pain; these are the ones I love lifting.  Actually, it’s we who do the lifting. It happens every time.

I like when we become healers because it’s safe to shine. I like when we get to the place where sex is no longer about me and what I want, or what I can get. I like when our sexuality stays fragile, and private and clear. I love when there is no difference between my pleasure and your pleasure. I love the moments when giving is so thrilling, so sweet and so divine, nobody is left out.

Regular sex, the kind you have behind closed doors, is still my favorite kind of sex. Ah, but there’s something very different when we get together to explore our sacred sexuality. And it isn’t what you may think. More …

Are you living a Dharma Relationship?

13015126_1000865586645399_5386982699163281562_n

You know you are living in Dharma Relationship if you:

Can find something to smile about even in the most disastrous situations, forget about things that are simply none of your business and get on with things that are. You can get angry, sad, mad and even rage – but it blows over fast, and you keep finding that darkness inside and chopping it into little pieces. You make love as a solace, a source of sublime deliverance. You strive to know the other as best you can, yet take pleasure in never quite making it. You constantly know life is a rather brief adventure, and that it matters who you serve; your self or all humanity.

Crazy Habits of Dharma Love

tomasz-alen-kopera_09_reverse-love

Perhaps you’ve noticed how having major secrets or lying in your intimate relationships keeps you hooked in a karmic-merry-go-round that isn’t very merry. It’s no fun getting caught in loops where nothing seems to change, old irritations insist on rearing up and you can’t help adding insult to injury. Such is the way of a Karmic Relationship.

The only way to shed the weight of karma and step on a path to creating a Dharma Relationship is start seeing transgressions for what they are. And here’s the kicker: whether you’ve made or have been the target of a transgression (as in being the cheater or being cheated on), it doesn’t matter. Either one keeps you dragging through karma going round and round.

Dharma Relationships are radically different, and the habits you start to ingrain are a lot more fun. It’s not that you suddenly escape conflict, get rid of all irritation or that you have the best sex ever right away.  You do however start to play by rules that bring you into a different world.

In karmic relationships you get to More …

The benches where the monks will sit

Tucked away in the high mountain village of Wutai Shan China we return to the ancient Tibetan Temple where we stay for our retreat.

We wake at 3:30 am to cross the dark and cold stone courtyard to get our blankets. Brrr! I can’t wait Where we bowto sit with the monks and chant with them for the morning ceremony. But first we make 108 bows. You put your hands on the two mits and then whoosh! – until you are lying straight on this board. It gets a little easier every day, and it sure warms you up for sitting and chanting. I remind my self we’re only doing this for a few weeks. They do it every day. More …

Pearls and Pitfalls of Online Dating

In case you missed part one: Virtues and Vices of Online Dating

I’ve been getting even more comments from my last newsletter; tales of awful dates and stories from those who, while they first thought nothing spiritual could come of this, now bless the day internet dating was born.

This was written by a man who said I could share his online ad. I love it. It worked for him.
I am a hot zesty 44 year old awesome bundle of love looking for a yummy juicy sexy woman that can’t wait to dive into my pants and discover the fullness of life. I am a man that has the capacity to be both strong and vulnerable, passionate and intimate as well as genuine and nurturing. I enjoy creating art, dancing tango, traveling the world, and reading poetry as much as I enjoy developing a successful business, curling up by a fire, and holding hands while watching a movie.

I give myself permission to cry, to not have the answers and to make mistakes. I am a man that celebrates both his mortal and divine masculine and I am in search of my twin soul-flame consort that embodies the beautiful mystery of the awakened divine feminine with an open heart, elegance and grace.

In the name of love I invite you to trust spirit, walk the razors edge and jump off cliffs into the unknown with me.

Alpha Women Say Soft is Better

iStock_lipskisssofter

I know what you might think. Yes, while it’s true being as hard as rock can lead to hours of hot, driven, pounding love, there is a softer world filled with off-the-chart sensations – for both men and woman. The truth is, soft is where the sensation is. When you’re soft, relaxed and open you can feel more. And the softer the power, the bigger the bliss.

For Him

Of course, there are physiological (and highly pleasurable) reasons for staying hard. Most, but by no means all! ejaculations happen at the apex of a sturdy rod. While this often feels very very good, until you develop the ability to relax and open during epic surges of energy, both you and your partner will lose a great deal of what could be harnessed to feel more healthy, happy and alive.

This series is dedicated to erotically intelligent women and men who are increasing their magnetic presence to attract higher levels of engagement.

Have you ever considered writing an online ad?

It can be a fascinating way to increase your magnetic presence to seek, find and deepen your beloved relationships. I know quite a few switched on seekers who have found some rather amazing people online and I’ve seen what works and what doesn’t.  While online rules of engagement may change the way we meet, the laws of attraction remain. The question is, how can we refine our approach to seeking and finding a beloved, online or otherwise and turn it into a spiritual adventure? More …

Two Faces of Beauty

Posted on

mirror-effect-a-1You’d think the choice between beauty and something unattractive would be simple – just nudge closer to what feels nice and avoid what you don’t like.

But have you ever noticed how right behind what attracts you most comes something that does not? It’s as if beauty has a secret twin that pulls you closer to what you want, and then, once you’re enchanted, shows you the other side. Don’t think of it as beauty = good, ugly = bad; really, because what is unattractive to you helps you look past surface beauty and opens you to being nourished by deep beauty.

It’s not only that you can’t have one without the other, both are perceptions that we react to all the time. Sometimes we avoid beauty, sometimes we melt into it. Sometimes we cringe away from something ugly, sometimes we can’t take our eyes off it. Beauty and the unattractive are inseparable, and the more you see both sides as one,  the less you’ll be baffled or blindsided when the other face appears. More …

Me and My Shadow Drawing by Sherry Folb

 Let’s imagine someone has a growling shadow lurking within, which when poked, likes to start aggressive arguments and behavior. This person will project their shadow through quarrels and disruptive actions, and if it the shadow gets its way, he or she will find some clever way out – either by leaving or finding the perfect distraction – anything to avoid a good look within.

Amara Charles Interview with Chatter Box TV ~ Part Two Crickette

Crickette vid Pt 2 clip

Crickette Gill of ChatterBox TV – she’s irreverent, she’s funny – and she’s a cat woman (very intelligent)  We chat about Erotic Intelligence, jade eggs, what happens in Shakti Queen, vaginal restoration, jade stems, gazing at the dragon and how to give your pussy a PHD… (as if she doesn’t already have a master’s degree…)

I thought our last interview was good ~ this one’s great. Crickette is so funny and so easy to talk with! Her questions turn me on! We had such a blast in my backyard and having tea…I  only wish we had camera rolling afterwards because that’s when the camera man gave his two cents, starting with something like, “well, I haven’t gotten too many complaints…

Yes, I said laughing, still, if you’re really intelligent, you’ll keep asking me questions. (which he did). So I asked if he wanted to hear my shortest poem, The Mark of Intelligence, (which he did).

The Mark of Intelligence

is the way

you open your legs.

Sexual Agreements ~ Interview with Amara Charles & Max Van Prague TV

Posted on

Amara Charles  Interview with Max Van Prague – Opening Relationships

Because our needs and our desires are constantly changing, our sexual agreements must become living entities. It’s not about making contracts that confine you, It’s not about being, or expecting perfection from your partner.

Making conscious sexual agreements requires radical honesty, not only about what you want, agreements are about owning and taking responsibility for our mistakes.
