Tend Your Garden

Befriending the Unknown:

WayMaker Journey Deep and Wide
Befriending the Unknown, journey to tend the depths of your inner garden.

Part 2–Deepening Journey to Tend Your Inner Garden

WayMakers— Our Second Wave Beckons.
After August and September with our WayMaker Initiation Circle, October was a potent period in which to integrate all that we’d practiced and worked on during late summer.

During that time, several of you joined me for a series of Sacred Space-Holding sessions during a particularly intense time. Our Intent lived as carryover from WayMaker practices — Co-creating a reality where all life flourishes.

This continues as the “bottom line” or what I call the meta-intent, for all that I’m doing to move forward in my Yin Arising body of work.

What is this second wave?
During the Samhain Seasonal Sacred Circle, I received the latest iteration: Befriending the Unknown: Deepening Journey to Tend Your Inner Garden

Currently, it’s designed to run from approximately Mid Nov. – Mid Feb., gathering approximately every 10-14 days, through the holidays that aren’t going to be like any we’ve experienced before.

From here (the inner garden), our new realities germinate, or so I’ve been told. 😉

What we will explore together is co-creating and amplifying the field of sacred resonance that is already present (and growing). Our tapping this resonance field and living it, IS the living birth-process of new reality emerging. Through us. As us.

We started at the Samhain Seasonal Sacred Circle, stirring and nourishing roots in the dark, as we move through the last octuple of the year into Winter Solstice, return of the light.

We are each called to play our unique part in this unfolding. There are very few places where you receive the strength of a field of sacred-holding and support to #InquireWithin and #ApprenticeToYourOwnInnerWisdom … amidst a community of radiantly open-hearted beings. This is your unique journey. I support us all. In holding the fluid container, I evoke spaciousness so we can all pour our creative flows through and into the cauldron. What emerges IS the new reality sourced from within each one.

A reminder of the credo from the WayMaker invitation:

WayMakers
Travel light, and BE the light that encompasses all.
Be the calm center, and allow storms to play out as they will.
Travel together, in the unifying direction of through.
Travel far, though you journey not.
Claim the vessel of your being
From whence new reality springs.
Grow the secret garden
From whence new reality emerges.

(With the addition, this time, of the final 2 lines.)

Yes, we each have our unique songs and expressions to bring into our inner secret sacred gardens. We grow, each one, a unique expression of living garden. AND, the greater field, Infinite Mother’s meta-garden, is already present. What has been “missing,” so to speak, has been US, as we awaken to this as a delicious potentiality within our horizon.

So yes, in one sense, we are co-creating and holding the template and space for this new reality to be co-created and birthed through us as participants.

And at the same time, we are called to birth ourselves into IT, the already-living field of the Mother. #BothAnd

This remains experimental, just as WayMaker Initiation Circle was. However, this time, I have been guided to share a rough map (outline) of our content for deepening into this garden-tending-journey.

Map for OUR Inner Garden-Tending Journey

Cultivate Your Intent—for the inner-tending-journey

Navigate by Nature—Discovering your unique way of deepening into your sacred inner garden space

Attune to Your Field of Hope and Blessing—Aligning with the greater container for amplifying your song of self

Evoke & Invoke Your Garden and Allies—Connecting with the 5 elements, your inner family members, allies, ancestors, angels, and … ?

Immerse in WayMaker Practices—deepening your roots and presence; Magnifying your garden’s growth; Gathering, refining, remembering to USE what is in your Medicine Satchel!

Leverage Your Enoughness—Having Enough, Being Enough, and Miraculous Leveraging from that wholeness ever-present

At the Core of Creation—You and your Garden as locus for the emerging new reality

The journey is dynamic, so we will experience it in the moment and trust where it takes us. Thus, we continue with the second wave of the WayMaker Journey, Befriending the Unknown: Deepening Journey to Tend Your Inner Garden.

Tending and deepening into the sacred garden within, and within the greater field of Infinite Mother, we continually refine and strengthen practices, creations, processes, and self from inside-out, thus expanding in self-trust. Your questions, concerns, and current challenges are also welcome. We witness, inquire, and lighten burdens through clearing and other inquiry and releasing practices.

This engagement of approximately 3 months offers a fluid, experimental structure, and it’s yours to lean into — just as far as you choose.

Are you called to engage?
Read carefully, tune in, and inquire within. If, as you review this invitation, you sense something calling you into deepening, then consider these particulars for engaging in Part 2 of the journey, Beloved WayMaker!

What I know now: this looks to be at least 8 sessions spaced approximately every 10 days to 2 weeks, including the 2 seasonal circles. WayMakers receive the Winter Solstice gathering, with the return of the light; and Imbolc, in early February, celebrating the earliest signs of spring. Another likelihood, now tickling my awareness, is mini-virtual retreat, probably in early December.

Gatherings may include: Centering/grounding experiences; Promptings for inquiring within and connecting to inner wisdom, Deep listening sessions; QA sessions; Sharing-Our-Practices sessions; and more to be revealed…
… which now includes additional Co-Working Sessions where we amplify our commitment to create/make/develop by doing it in a shared Zoom space.

You will receive a healing circle at least weekly via Belvaspata and other healing-wholeness-space-holding sessions (currently planned as offline, but could be done live); plus daily Belvaspata angelic-wholeness maintenance sessions that continue for 6 months after completion of this circle. Your specific intentions are welcome to be placed into the circle for the radiant-heart-wholeness sessions.

Recordings. Check.
Prompts. Check.
Space-time to engage and share — if you want to. Check.
Private Facebook space. Check.

Dates, days, times to be determined in consultation with those who choose to participate; jointly agreed on and possibly switched up, depending on global time zones of participants.

We are each co-creating our own unique reality. We practice this reality co-creation together throughout this part 2, deepening journey — and beyond.

  • As convener and circle-holder, I point out possibilities and perspectives from my own experience. You are invited to share yours.
  • I hold the initial vision, its Vessel + Sacred Circle, and our field of shared intent. You get to experience depths within and nuances of shaping (holding) your own reality and cultivating your garden— in your own unique way — while receiving support in our shared container.
  • I share practices both in real time sessions and asynchronously. With the latter, you are invited to receive the potency into your own field in your most perfect timing. There are also opportunities for you to share and refine your most potent practices, perceptions, and understandings.
  • I am holding the sacred circle with support from various realms and modalities so that you can relax and receive as fully as you are willing. Simultaneously, you are learning and refining your own circle-holding capacities.

We connect within to inspired WayMaker practices to build the muscles of self-trust. You may have, in your own medicine satchel, practices that serve you well already. We gather, share, refine, and strengthen together during these unfathomable times.

Tend your garden through the dark of the year and into the turn into the light. Your sacred exchange for this experimental program is $180, or $60 per month, payable via PayPal. (If there is another sacred exchange you would like to propose, please contact me directly. If you need to pay monthly, please let me know. We can work that out.)

For Change Catalysts at the Growing Edge

Evolutionaries:

3-20-19-Radio-Show---Ep-10---Bobbye-1200x1200-layout743-change-catalysts-at-the-growing-edge-inspired-news-radio-bobbye-middendorf-change-catalysts-podcast-1e8o3c7 copy

You are evolving. Your work is evolving. You may find yourself in a verdant field of “I don’t know.”

Are you comfortable with being immersed in the field of “I don’t know…” ?

You can, you know…

For if you consider, How can you be anyplace else but where you are exactly supposed to be?…
from that place, what else might be possible? What pure potentiality might be trying to peek through the veils?

What if your “I don’t know…” can become a potent and useful message — and place — to lean into?

If this is the case, I invite you to join us on a journey and exploration, this dynamic conversation between two evolving trailblazers.

Listen in as Carol McClelland Fields and Bobbye Middendorf explore what it’s like to “Evolve Your New Work” on Inspired News Radio.

(We share our journey together in episode 10 of Carol’s program / podcast,  “Change Catalysts at the Growing Edge.”)

 

 

 

Celebrate: An Invitation to Blessing

11-11 at 11 AM — Receive a Blessing

We open the portal to Befriending the Unknown and immerse in a time for “Tending the Inner Garden.”

Bobbye Middendorf Photography
All the time, Love and I are One.

In celebration, Beloved!

Please join live (or receive the recording) in this no-cost blessing celebration and ceremony for amplifying the unique song of your essence, sourced from within and expressing outwards to reshape your reality.

In my experience, this is the greatest gift we can give to support the emergent new reality. We shape it through our BEing, through expressing our essence, through amplifying our unique Song of Essence, what the Seer Almine calls the “Song of Self.”

11-11 Blessing Ceremony

You are invited into deeper alignment with your inner being and to amplify your unique “Song of Self” during this potent time. I convene and hold the sacred space in partnership with the Infinite and with the field of Belvaspata, the source of this “Song of Self” practice. You are invited to relax and receive. You are invited to celebrate your BEing as an expansive resource in co-creating your own new reality.

This space-opening ceremony is the portal to a longer engagement, and this may — or may not — be your time to engage at that next level.

The headwinds may have lessened — just slightly — on our journey into Befriending the Unknown. However, even the President-Elect noted that we are “at an Inflection Point.”

What this means is that the outer sphere now publicly recognizes this pivot point. It’s the place we’ve been playing and cultivating deep underground for quite some time. The new-reality-co-creation project — that all life flourishes — is the heart of my journey in partnership with Yin Arising, as collectively we learn what it means and how to Befriend the Unknown.

Many of us have been working underground and as background support for this time and this emergence. We are co-creating this invisible and invincible infrastructure of new reality in partnership with the forces of Yin Arising and others in invisible realms. This joyous play of our fullest expression in emergence is more timely than ever. Maintaining our focus is even more crucial.

The WayMakers, Evolutionaries, Change Catalysts, and Conscious Creators — you and I — are here at this inflection point to open the field of invisible potentiality even further.

And it starts with each of us opening to RECEIVE: To receive the blessings and gifts that emerge as we align with and magnify the unique essence of our song. As each songline comes into its fullest expression and radiant alignment with the flows of the One Life, we become the living alchemy of this sacred moment that opens the way for new realities.

Are you ready, willing, and able to receive? Then say yes to you.

Further Backstory on 11-11

Nine years ago, at a retreat on the Big Island that encompassed 11-11-11, I allowed myself to be witnessed by an intimate circle of beloveds in claiming and owning the title “divine priestess” for the first time I recall in this lifetime.

Nine years on, and it still isn’t how I typically show myself … And yet I now publicly admit to “partnering in co-creation with Infinite Mother,” and claim “Yin Arising” as the overarching umbrella of my body of work. So, yes, this date offers a pivotal marker for me of more profoundly claiming my role and my power.

Since then, evolution has happened, of course. Evolutionaries gotta evolve. And so the journey and expression continues and expands. Thank you for walking with me along this evolutionary edge.

Samhain-All Saints Sacred Circle Gathering

As we immerse underground, roots tickled in the darkness, a net of light connects all. Let us embrace this sacred interconnection from depths within.

Veils thinned, & time for deep-nurturing of our roots in the dark, we gather. Centering, grounding, inquiring within via sacred journaling, tender sharing in a circle of radiant witnessing:

Let us pivot the ancient traumas of the wise ones into luminous wholeness that births the new reality we are co-creating.

You are invited …

My Beloved,

We are called into the dark of the year to refresh, replenish, regenerate, and stir the roots of our being with the deep sustenance of divine feminine presence. Yin Arising is not only rising, this feminine principle is living anew in all beings and coming forth.

Metaphysically, the entire cosmos is transforming from old paradigm outside-in models and practices. Yes, you’re seeing them breaking down beneath your feet. And moving TO — Inside-Out. Make way for the Goddess.

What it is:
I hold a sacred circle space, amidst massive outer de-structuring and the transformations we’ve longed for, yet didn’t expect. You?

You are invited to put yourself into the center of your own circle of “Self-Care Sunday,” as one of my beloved mentors calls it… (Plus the session will be recorded so you can revisit at any point, AND you can come to it in your own perfect timing, if needed.)

You are invited to #InquireWithin to access your own inner depths, so to root yourSelf into your own inner landscape for co-creating a new reality. We are called to nothing less than this!

In Sunday’s (Nov. 1) Sacred Circle of self-nurture + journaling- your-perceptions as you attune to your inner wisdom, we experience spaciousness for stretching roots into the depths and fertile darkness. We activate profound self-nourishment, and cultivate from within the new reality that is being birthed through us, as us, and beyond us.

❤


In addition!

October’s second full moon, a Blue Moon, will be on 31 October, All Hallow’s Eve. Lean into Mama Moon’s elegant support!

This entire “season”  of immersing in the rich sacred feminine dark of the year is acknowledged in different traditions — Samhain from the Celtic tradition, Dia De Los Muertos in the Hispanic tradition, a cross-quarter holy day in the Wicca tradition, and the Catholics weigh in with All Saints’ Day, Nov. 1, a “holy day of obligation,” and the following All Souls’ Day for those deemed not saintly enough…

I invite you into this cozy and self-supportive time out of time sacred circle gathering. Together we honor and mark this seasonal node of many names in multiple traditions. 

Seasonally (in the Northern Hemisphere), we enter the dark octuple of the year between now and the Winter Solstice.

We gather in celebration of our living roots that stir in fertile and nurturing darkness, while reconnecting with Mama Gaia who is in her own reset and time of replenishment.

It’s a sacred space for you to bring forward awareness, appreciation, attunement, and activation to your inside-out Ways.

We go deep first– and fast– with a centering, then there are prompts that offer you grounding and access points into your own depths of wisdom ready to come forth. For about an hour, you deepen into the radiant wisdom of your being as you #InquireWithin, then the last half hour (approximately) is time and space to share insights, and the fractals of our sacred interconnections.

If you feel a tug of resonance and interest, mark your calendar for Sunday, 1 Nov 2020 at 1 PM MST til apprx 2:30 PM. (NOTE: time changes in US and Canada early AM on this day.)

For detailed explanation about our sacred exchange, which is Pay-from-the-Heart, you can read more at this link. ♥ https://writesynergiescopywriting.com/2020/09/10/what-is-pay-from-the-heart/

I love you and honor you so much! Your presence is a treasure to me and in my life.

Whether this particular circle calls to you, know that you are forever loved and held in a tender embrace of your own radiant wholeness.

Equinox Sacred Circle Event with Bobbye

Celebrate Equinox with Bobbye and other radiant beings. We gather in our Seasonal Sacred Circle with Mama Gaia in her dynamic balance point! It’s autumnal equinox in the North, vernal equinox in the South.


Resilience. Regeneration. All life flourishing.
If you are willing to entertain these pure potentialities, even amidst all the crises, breakdowns, and de-structuring, then you are invited into this Equinox Seasonal Circle for Creators, WayMakers, and Evolutionaries.

Gather with like-hearted, great-hearted beings in a sacred space-time. All are held safely to amplify inner listening and connect with inner wisdom, to be witnessed into wholeness, and to claim potency and possibility as co-creator …

What it is:
I hold a sacred circle space, just ahead of the Equinox. You put yourself into the center of your own circle of “Self-Care Sunday,” as one of my beloved mentors calls it… (Plus the session will be recorded so you can revisit at any point, AND you can come to it in your own perfect timing, if needed.)

You are invited to #InquireWithin to find your own inner dynamic balance, thus to root yourSelf into your own inner landscape for co-creating a new reality. We are called to nothing less than this!

* For honoring and appreciating cycles, both macro and micro.
* To dive deeply within, to #NoticeWhatYouNotice, to inquire into and explore where that inquiry takes you.
* As we collectively s-l-o-w w-a-a-y down to finally give that still small voice the spaciousness she needs to be truly heard.


If you resonate, if you feel called, please know that YOUR flavor of expression is welcome:
Write. Doodle. Draw. Paint. Collage. Stitch. Improv with music, toning, sound, movement … You choose the form of your expression! Or make notes during the session so you can take fresh insights back to your studio practice …

It is time. If you are in my circles, know this: we are the ones.

Beloved conscious co-creator, evolutionary edge-walker, trailblazing change catalyst, and WayMaking alchemist: This is you. This is us. This is the time.

Now is our time to gather strength together by inquiring within — together, in a shared and sacred container. We explore the fluidity of balance, nothing static about it, and find that sourcing from within offers the greatest hope, possibility, and stability. Here’s how we do it.

We engage the seeming conundrum of the both-and — exploring depths within AND simultaneously being held in a sacred group container for sharing, strengthening, finding resonance with like-hearted others.

What is Pay From the Heart?

This Adventure in Sacred Exchange for our Seasonal Sacred Circle Inquiry Invites You to Pay-From-The-Heart 

“Bobbye … has an unusual ability to hold space by carefully tending to the creation of a safe and deep container, through the patience and holding of her deep listening and through her caring wisdom. The result is that one sees oneself and one’s situation more clearly, more fully, and with more compassion.” — MD, Ontario


I convene powerful spaces where potent breakthroughs happen each time. Pay-from-the-heart asks you to tune in — to this invitation and within yourself. Where does it land within you?

If this event feels like it will serve you well, then from your intuitive heart will bubble up an amount for our exchange that is appropriate for you. Here are a couple of guidelines that I hope will clarify.


This Adventure in Sacred Exchange is a seasonal circle gathering.
My intent, that it be available to as many as are called to it, means I set a modest threshold — a minimum investment of $8.00. (If this level causes hardship or you are at a place without room for extras, or you wish to propose some other kind of sacred exchange, please contact me directly.)
The basic suggested sacred exchange is $25.00. If you have the wherewithal, $33.00 or more helps to offset my costs and will support me in serving those who are challenged to afford even the modest minimum fees.

Your Zoom link to join will be sent when I receive your PayPal notice. Please make sure I have your current email address so you will receive the recording after the event along with some of my notes, the prompts written out, and other follow-ups from our gathering. At the following link, you can send whatever your heart prompts you.


If you don’t use PayPal, just send me a message or email, and we can arrange an alternative.

Sacred Exchange

“Adventures and Experiments in Sacred Exchange”

In partnership with the soul of “Write Synergies Circle with Yin Arising,” (the current iteration of this adventure that some call business), I show up as mentor-catalyst, poet, collagist, and inner wisdom guide. At its radiant heart-center, I give voice to the emergent Yin Arising.

Evolutionaries and visionaries, writers and creators, healers and sensitive, intuitive, empathic souls discover access to their own Sanctuary (inner and outer) when co-creating on the discovery-journey with me.

These shared “Adventures and Experiments in Sacred Exchange” provide visioning for what is beyond old paradigm business and outdated models. For intrepid inner explorers, for radiant souls who want to play, such sensitive, intuitive, empathic beings find deep value in our collaborations. From this co-creative space, visionary creations and awakened consciousness evolve. 

Deep-rooted grounding and presencing practices emerge to hold the space within this sanctuary for souls, stories, synergies, and sovereignty.

From darkness to Light-Turn

 

12-21-SolsticeFullMoon-scrnshot

Bright Solstice Blessings, Beloved!

At the Solstice, hinge point of the year, our trajectory of dark turns to light in the Northern hemisphere.
Amidst our “return to light” is the Moon shining full on, on 22 December.
From our friends at the Power Path:
Solstice is Friday, December 21 at 3:22 PM MST
Full Moon is Saturday, December 22 at 10:48 AM MST.
In my final “moon message” (on 7 Dec), I said that was the last email to focus
as a “moon message.”
What will emerge from here forward, I do not yet know.
I did, however, promise a gift, and so I come to you in celebration of
December’s Solstice and Full Moon.
Let us honor the diversity and beauty,
all the many ways we return ourselves
to light with ceremony and tradition.
No matter what you celebrate, our honouring
this season-turn offers a chance to reflect on blessings of myriad
kinds.
It is also a spectacular time to focus on bringing yourself home
to- for- and with- yourself.
On Solstice, Friday evening, 12-21-18, I joined a group of poets in
Placitas, NM.
We read our poems by the light of a single candle.
For everyone, I have made an audio
reading of this poem,
“Whispers of Winter, Dance in Infinite,” as my
gift to you. If you wish to use this as part of your own solstice ceremony, I
invite you to do so. Light a candle, enjoy a cup of tea, and
remember to breathe!
To listen to my poem honouring this time of year, you can listen
streaming here:
http://www.audioacrobat.com/email/EwqMxJW62
To download:
Newness is emerging for me in 2019, so stay tuned. I will be back in touch
once whatever it is, is ready to make itself known. I have been allowing
the organic growth to unfold at its own pace, yet even now I feel a
quickening!
May you follow and appreciate your own organic growth process
whatever it is and wherever it leads.
Through it all, please know that I am here for you.
Please reach out, send me an email or connect here or via social media if
you have a question or would like to explore
options for getting support for the projects and creations
closest to your heart. An energetic opening of support
is buoying us up and propelling us forward in these times,
ripe for those of us walking the-spiritual-intuitive-evolutionary-path.
Now is the time.
Warmest wishes and bright blessings of love, light, and gratitude on all levels,
Bobbye

Although the blossoms of spring have passed, Yin Arising’s potent rising continues to baffle and astound us. At this time of light shining brightly, all of our deepest darkest shadows and assumptions are getting revealed in their heinous toxicity. We each have a role to play, so it really is a  best practice not to make assumptions about others based on surface appearances.

There are hidden synergies at work for clearing, clearing, clearing right now. There’s plenty for each of us to clear — from within first. With that willingness to clear, to become the clear channel for Infinite to work through you (and as you), you become a vessel for change at potent new levels.

With such a commitment, “Synergies” will happen when you show up, whether or not you are aware of them. That said, the more conscious awareness you can bring to this process, the more potent will be your actions in the world. What this world of shadow is calling for more than anything is our pure beingness aligned with love and put into sacred action in the world.

For many years, “Synergies” has been one of my key expressions and concepts for what happens when I show up, creating and doing my work in the world and within. #Synergies, with a focus on “wholes greater than the sum of the parts,” expresses the essential flavor of my approach even before I had a name for it.

#YinArising is a new container that encompasses this work of growing the deep roots of Synergies while being willing to keep the channels cleared — all so that creations of our highest and fullest expression can come forth, the embodiment of pure potentiality.

Bright blessings at the Solstice,

Bobbye

 

 

 

The Long Arc of Deep Listening

Feel Your Flow and “Unstick Yourself” When You Listen from Within

If you are facing blocks, obstacles, challenges that keep you stuck and stop you from giving your gifts or bringing forth a new iteration of your work in the world, then listen up! It’s time for an inner journey. And you do not have to travel it alone.

What we can do so easily for others is not something we can do for ourselves. Have you ever noticed this?

And if you are a creative, sensitive, intuitive, empathic soul, you are probably noticing the noise levels are rising in so many ways in our current environment and situations. The outer noise can be a source of inner stress. That inner stress can shut down the creative flow and even make it hard to hear your own inner wisdom.

An old phrase, “I can’t hear myself think,” applies here. Whether you are trying to think from the head, the heart, or the gut, the external cacophony blocks your ability to listen and to hear with discernment from within.

Without access to that inner listening, you can get stuck.

I support people to listen from within their own depths. What happens when they do, when they take the time to slow down and inquire from within, is nothing short of miraculous. At the end of so many conversations with clients and others, I hear a satisfied sigh of relief.  Time after time, they unstick themselves in the sanctuary of our conversation and time together.

It is rare to be able to do this for yourself, no matter how practiced you are with listening with others — clients, colleagues, friends.

Here is a story, the stand that I take in partnership with my clients and on behalf of colleagues, friends, and co-creators who are with me and walking this path together.

If this sounds delicious, and you have some stuckness around your work in the world and giving your gifts (especially the gifts that you have never felt safe to give before), then let’s schedule a no-obligation conversation to see if our work together is purposeful at this time.

With gratitude for you!

Bobbye
