Butterfly Hearts


One Heart by Jane Large

The One Heart

By Jane Large (CCSS Collective Member)

If there is anything I have realized through practicing shamanism, is that there us ONE HEART that we are all part of, and at the same time the entirety of that ONE HEART dwells within each one of us. We are the heart within the ONE HEART and the ONE HEART lives within us. We are the heart within the heart.

We are all connected through the energy that flows in our hearts, the ONE HEART. We are ever-connected, as if our hearts are holding hands as we walk through this life as humans together. My heart is connected to every other heart at the very essence of who and what we are…LOVE. Our hearts overlap, touch, share, as if the essence of ALL flows through us through our hearts.

So often now when I think of all the beings on Earth, I think of our hearts, holding hands, beating individually yet as one, under all the drama, separation and isolation that we humans tend to exact on ourselves and each other. We may have separate bodies, yet our hearts are as one, made up of and carrying the essence of life. We are the essence within the essence.

And this is why we connect and why connection is so important to us as human beings…



Home Practice

Create a moment for you to close your eyes and take a deep breath. Go within and feel the warmth flowing in your chest, in your heart. Know it is the essence of life, of LOVE, that flows through all things. It is the essence of the ONE HEART. It is your essence.

* Envision yourself reaching out, taking the hands of your friends and family to connect the essence of all of your hearts.
* Go further and imagine the circle becoming bigger as you connect with the not only your loved ones, but with all our brother and sisters on earth. Imagine that we are one big family, bonded by our ONE HEART essence.
* Use all of your senses – what would this look like, feel like, taste like, smell like, and sound like?
* How can you use this information to bring peacefulness and love into your life and the lives of others at this time?

Whole Hearted

By Gwenith Kikkawa (CCSS Collective Member)

In the fall CCSS felt a strong calling to be part of Canada’s largest showcase of natural health, alternative medicine and green living, the Whole Life Expo, held in Toronto. This was a show our centre had taken part in many years ago, and we knew it was time to return and celebrate the many ways we have grown and evolved since last being there.

A show of this size was a deep commitment, and we chose not do it alone, but in the strong and sustainable way of the circle. With our collective circle we began to gather the pieces from our journeys, dreams, and guiding insights, that would inform us of our intention, the bigger picture of our purpose in attending the show.

Dragon Heart

Awakening the Dragon Heart

By Jan Beaver (CCSS Collective Member)

We are in the midst of a momentous shift in consciousness on Mother Earth. On Dec.21, 2014 at 6:03 pm EST, we transition to Winter Solstice, the sacred time of darkness. Spirit is calling all to gather together at that time in Love, Peace and Unity, with sacred intention, wherever you are on the planet. If you are in the Barrie area, you are welcome to join us in ceremony.

Some time ago, we shifted into what I call “Extraordinary Reality”. We are no longer in the ordinary 3 D reality as it no longer exists. The veils have lifted between us and the limitless realms of the magical, mythical, mystical beings. Merlin has appeared along with thunderbirds, unicorns, centaurs, nature spirits and dragons to reach out to assist us in this transition.
