What are the Membranes of Hope?

For many years now, in divination the wedeme (elemental beings of the wild) have been teaching me about the importance of tending to the many layers of “membranes” which enclose and protect life systems. Feeding and caring for these membranes is crucial and urgent work for medicine people at this time on the planet. I have recently published the book, Membranes of Hope: A Guide to Attending to the Spiritual Boundaries that Keep Lifesystems Healthy from the Personal to the Cosmic. In this post, I will explain what is meant by the use of the word membrane to help introduce the concept more...

Understanding the Meaning of True Compatibility

In the middle of a group divination inquiring into the properties of oil, when I stated aloud that oil and water are not compatible, I was given a very big scolding by the wedeme (elemental beings of the wild). What they told me next was compelling to me. I wish to share it here. Just because oil and water interact in a way that we define as incompatible does not make that the truth. Oil and water are perfectly made for one another. Their interaction and repulsion is a perfect compatibility which actually allows life to happen. The fact that oil can repel water allows many lifesystems to...
