Earth Patterns


As a child, I learned the patterns of clouds, seasons, the motion of the moon, and meaning of dew on the grass. Nature spoke in an immutable language of signs, which never changed—and spoke of the future in a thousand ways. But the earth is changing, and the signs no longer hold their former wealth of information.

The sun and moon rise in different locations. There are unseasonable patterns. Fall comes early, perennial plants bloom in fall rather than spring, and storms and fires fill the continent. Globally, we’re experiencing solar flares, rising oceans, and a fluctuating magnetic field. The planet is taking on the matrix of a new pattern.

Part of the new pattern is the return of the wolves. (When I first met them, their numbers were smaller. They said the resurgence of their population was associated with a positive change as well as the turning of the planet and stars.) The four-leggeds and the creatures of the ocean also send waves of songs to support us.

In alchemical writings, there are notes indicating the elementals (the creatures ruling the kingdoms of fire, air, water, and earth) respond to the moods and thoughts of awakening human beings. As we awaken our energy level soars, and the acceleration of consciousness amplifies any imbalance in the emotional, mental, or physical realm of humans. As our energy increases and expands, nature acts as a balancing force by releasing emotion through storms and flames.

With many people awakening at this particular time, the planet’s reaction is not surprising. Earth is likely reflecting the oscillation of emotions and thoughts of many people at one time. As we increase our consciousness and light, our feelings and emotions often become more intense.

I’m sharing my thoughts below, which are simply based on observation.

  1. Storms and rain can reflect our inner condition; they can also clear our inner and outer condition. (Think of the garden in mid-summer after a wonderful rain.) From my experience, it is possible to calm a storm or experience it in a less intense manner.
  2. Fire purifies and changes a landscape. With the many fires in the United States, it could be helpful to imagine the landscape after days of rain–or to see new life in the place of the flames. (Note: it’s more helpful to see and imagine rain than to wish for it.)
  3. Some of our weather may be manufactured by others. We could imagine gentle, balanced weather–or devices that don’t work.
  4. We hasten the seasons and the feeling of an accelerated year by sending children to school in early August. Advertisements such as Halloween in August make time seem to move more quickly. When we buy and prepare months ahead, we actually visualize cooler weather and other events such as Christmas and snow! It’s always a wonderful time to slow and become present.
  5. Mass beliefs such as associating harsh winter with global warming increase the likelihood of the experience. If many people believe this, we’ll certainly experience it. Obviously, it’s also possible to visualize and create a milder winter. On another topic, pollution obviously exists, and we have to see this truth. But we can also imagine a planet without pollution, including clear skies, clean water, and solutions for current problems.

If Nature is reflecting our beliefs, thoughts, and emotions, there is a possibility of creating a better reality. As far as I know, few people, with the exception of indigenous people, experiment with this. Please share your thoughts and insights.

  1. Dear Julia. I’m not indigenous but I believe in your ideas .We can temper the storms. We can change pollution in the air . We can mitigate the pressures of plates below the surface of earth to lessen earthquake damage. We can sweep radioactive toxins into a ball of magenta light on the ocean floor . I call upon higher powers to collapse matrix of geo engineering of weather. The Scattered Goddesses will have none of it from this time forward! Lets all join in together to polish and create a Garden of Eden.

  2. I often ask Mother Nature to hold off raining until I get where I’m going. Recently, I saw the darkening skies and decided to go home for lunch even though it was a half hour earlier than my normal lunch time. I felt She was aware of my intention and waited for me. It began raining minutes after getting into the house. I’m often out in nature and have similar experiences of weather spirits holding off the elements until I reach safety. I share my intentions and hopes, and I always thank my benefactors!

  3. Hello Julia,
    Once again, very valuable info & insights; you’ve nailed it w/your thoughts based on observation & those are also my beliefs! I’ve been keeping track of the weather in the U.S. since Jan. ’14 when there was an unprecedented series of tornadoes that mo. which never happened before & since then, EVERY SGL. WK. THERE HAS BEEN SEVERE WEATHER IN 1 WAY OR ANOTHER OR RAGING FIRES! That leads me to believe that Americans are paying some karmic debt for misdeeds by their gov’t. since getting involved in WW11 & all subsequent conflicts since then & ALSO TEMPERING W/THE WEATHER BY THE USE OF RADIO FREQUENCIES, LIKE ELF WAVES ETC.!!!

  4. Hi Julia, I always read your words in joy and gratitude – even if the observations are less than comfortable.
    Yes about the above and thank you for the reminders of visualizing gentle and fresh activities, expressions and outcomes.
    Our planet is a being like we are – who has taken on an enormous responsibility. I don’t think I would be up to manifesting as a planet any time soon. We Love Her; we nurture Her; we thank Her; we tender Her; we consider that She is on this journey too. So She is going through Her own changes and on top of that, vibrates and moves with what all her creatures are doing. Love to You and the Wolves Julia.

  5. Julia, I greatly appreciate and resonate with your above stated observations. I celebrate the sacred connections between nature and humanity. Global Love!

  6. Thank you for giving some suggestions of how to think positively about situations we don’t like. It’s very useful and a good reminder in general to create the world we want.
