Starshine News Spring 2022
Challenges abound. Try to see the larger picture and not get caught in the fray.
Where is life pushing you to leave old beliefs behind, beliefs that were meant for a smaller life, a life built on someone else’s values, perhaps. Where are you able to make room for a larger view of yourself and how you want to live.
We’re all in service to life. We are here, besides for our own transformation and growth, to a transformer for the Earth, Herself. We are bringing in the vertical cosmic energies an in allowing them to pass through us, they are conducted into the Earth for Her evolution and growth. It is a symbiotic relationship at its finest!

Be well, Jyoti

Spring 22 Book Reviews
Carrots Love Tomatoes by Louise Riotte: Companion Planting. An old favorite of mine to drag out in Spring. Vegetables that work together to keep each other healthy and planting by the moon phases.
Girls Like Us by Cristina Alger. East coast, Long Island murder mystery. Fast paced. FBI agent Nell Flynn, home on leave to bury her father, a former cop at the local police station. Bodies are found, Nell is invited into the case as she grew up with half of the local police as ‘uncles’. She investigates and pulls all the missing parts together, past and present.
Disappearance by Julien Ayotte. WITSEC, the witness protection program run by the U.S. Marshall’s Service, has a leak. A ‘phantom’ assassin is taking out the witnesses. The director of WITSEC, Paul O’Malley, must find out who and what is going on. Really enjoyed this!
Astral: A Jack Doyle Paranormal Mystery by Mark Reeder. Detective Jack Darvesh Doyle investigates Seattle’s Chinatown and the two main gangs that control what happens there. A series of murders ensues. No clues. Nothing but a bloodless corpse. He’s been given 3 days to solve it before the city is plunged into a gang war. Not your ordinary mystery, yet an absorbing and interesting storyline. I really enjoyed this. Available on Amazon.
The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith (aka J.K. Rowling). A contemporary mystery set in London. A supermodel seems to have committed suicide, falling from her balcony to lie face down in the snow. Her brother has doubts and hires private detective Cormoran Strike to check on it. Strike has a myriad of his own problems, including being suddenly homeless, a new office temp, war wounds and a need for quick cash. He takes the case. First in a trilogy. Loved it.
JUST FYI: Seminis and De Ruiter veggie seed brands are owned by Monsanto/Bayer, purveyor of GMO seeds.
“When you give in to helplessness, you collude with despair and add to it. When you take back your power and choose to see the possibilities for healing and transformation, your creativity awakens and flows to become an active force of renewal and encouragement in the world. In this way, even in your own hidden life, you can become a powerful agent of transformation in a broken darkened world. There is a huge force field that open when intentions focuses and directs itself toward transformation.” John O’Donohue. To Bless the Space Between Us.
Whatever journey we imagine ourselves to be on, myth and fairy tales can inform our sense of what is possible, and enable us not just cope with life’s challenges, but to live more intensely, and more richly, in the world. The Enchanted Life by Sharon Blackie.
The Death of Mrs. Westaway by Ruth Ware. Hal receives a letter to settle an estate and her presence is required. She knows there’s been a mistake. However, tired of her poverty and afraid of the man stalking her to repay a loan, she travels to the mansion estate and meets her ‘relatives’ for the first time. Old Mrs. Westaway had died, leaving a confusing and dangerous legacy regarding her legacy, perhaps by design. Hal comes to realize that her beliefs about family and especially her mother may not be what she thought. I found it engrossing!
When I enter the woods
I vibrate to green.
Not sure of megahertz,
just the feeling.
When trees speak,
my tension dissolves
and I feel one
with everything around me.
My gratitude courses
through all of me
like a colorful rainbow
To be seen and known
is eternal nourishment
I would imagine Heaven,
in that vernacular,
would be a family of trees
with their hearts out.
Interviews with other shamanic practitioners and audio blogs on shamanic subjects. A gold mine of information.
Ever since Happiness heard your name,
It has been running through the streets
Trying to find you.
And several times in the last week,
God Himself has come to my door-
So sweetly asking for your address,
Wanting the beautiful warmth of your heart’s fire.
There is a Zen story about a man who was chased by a wild tiger to the edge of a cliff. Standing on the precipice, the man lost his footing and slid down the embankment until he caught himself on an exposed root. He looked down to the raging river hundreds of feet below him. If he climbed back up, the tiger would eat him; if he dropped to the river, he would drown. In fact, the tiger might come down the embankment and get him anyway, or his strength would give out and he would no longer be able to hang from the root. He was terrified.
Then he noticed a wild strawberry growing just inches from his face. He looked up at the tiger; he stared down at the raging river.
Then calmly, he ate the wild strawberry. From Yearning for the Wind: Celtic Reflections on Nature and the Soul by Tom Cowan.
