A Labyrinth in Egypt!

walking the labyrinth

Being present in the walk.

From the moment hearing about the Women Gathering for Global Change Conference in Alexandria, Egypt, intuitively, I knew I needed to be there. The whys were not clear at first. They gradually unfolded and completed the understanding after returning home to Mount Shasta.

The conference was sponsored by The Human Foundation of Cairo founded by Dr. Aliaa Rafea and the International Association of Sufism also in Cairo. It was held at the beautiful Bibleoteca Alexandria (The Library of Alexandria)

The whole trip was profound and revealing in so many ways, far beyond visiting the pyramids. Not wanting to make any part less significant than another, telling the stories in a type of context is important to me.

This first step and story began 15 years ago, on September 18, 2001, a week after the world changed forever! During the following week a prophesy within the Mayan Calendar revealed that September 17 – 18, 2001 would be called “The Days of Truth.” Over those 2 days people gathered in every part of the world for prayer and

ceremony for healing and understanding of the events a week earlier.

A collective activation of heart compassion took rise, something that had not been experienced since Princess Diana tragically died in August, 1997. Heart compassion knows no boundaries, race, religion or agenda. We, the collective, united as one heartbeat of compassion and empathy can change everything!

The Unfolding Story    Location: Rocky Mountains, Colorado

After parking my car I headed up the mountains to about 11,000 feet to find the right spot. A glade opened up with a natural circle of stone and trees – the perfect place. Drum in hand I began to beat the sounds, songs and prayers. Simultaneously, outside of Kansas City, my friend Toby Evans, Keeper of the Prairie Labyrinth, was also holding ceremony within the beautiful labyrinth on her land.

Walking, pacing, sitting, standing – the sounds of the drum continued. Sometimes the sounds were off key, other times like a cry – the drum was speaking.  The circle called! Standing in the middle of the circle, slowly turning, the beat continued.

Around and around, turning slowly, images came and went.  Bubbles of spirit energy would rise up and in a fraction of a time burst. The drum beat rejoiced at what was happening. More images of lands in pain, of loss and death. Native lands, Ireland, Bosnia, Germany, Japan, Middle East, Vietnam, South Africa and more all came into view as I turned and turned with the drum beat.

The images changed. Labyrinths began appearing as transparencies above these lands and places. With each turn the labyrinths expanded to eventually be over continents. A labyrinth transparency above each continent – Europe, Asia/Middle East, Africa, North America, South America, Australia and Antarctica.

The turning was getting faster. The drum beats and sounds changed over each land mass as I turned. Dissonance, pain, flat, dead. I kept playing, singing and crying – turning all the time getting faster and faster. Every now and then a change, a shift happened. The sounds evening out. Faster turns, sounds clearing, songs rising.

Suddenly the visions and sounds were clearer, the beat becoming one! Within the labyrinth above each continent a dark energy stream pulling up and out from the lands towards the center OM symbol, moving through the holographic paths to the white bubble above. Light increased until the turns, the beat, the sounds and vision were all ONE – it was the most amazing feeling and sight to witness from within. Then in a moment in time the white bubbles filled with darkness burst and released to the heavens.

The turns automatically slowed, the drum beat softened, my tears flowed so freely and a lightness surrounded the glade.

What I believe I witnessed within the vision and the sound was the honoring and releasing of old earthbound spirit energies, locked in lands and people though time, possibly eons of time. The labyrinth created a portal of safety for release and healing on levels beyond our knowing.

Taking the The Walking for World Peace Labyrinth and the drum to Egypt was the manifestation of a personal vision and desire I have held for many years. To physically take a labyrinth to a place or region experiencing conflict and adversity. To lay it out and allow local people to quietly walk the meditative paths. To have their own experience whether subtle or profound yet most all have fun with the unusual colorful spiral of geometries. I was gifted profoundly with meeting beautiful people and learning much more of that ancient land and culture and the strength of the Egyptian people.

The labyrinth and the drum I used in the original ceremony in 2001 were left with The Human Foundation in Cairo to be used for others to enjoy and discover!

It is from the experience and visions on the September day in 2001 that my diverse knowledge, work, art and sharing of the simple, colorful, innocent labyrinths have evolved and continue to be expressed today.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Titled: Yellow Seeds Birth the New World Matrix    2013Birth of the New Earth

This Sunday March 13 is the beginning of a journey back in time. Back to times within my soul memory, before recorded history, before the fall of humanity’s consciousness into a 3-D world from the holographic realms of clarity, culture and higher science and technology.

That day, March 13, is also the Yellow Rhythmic Seed – Kin 84. The seal and tone of my birthday and current galactic solar return. I am returning home after eons of time – to EGYPT – Alexandria and Cairo.

Unexpected and sudden in its revelation, my friend Morgan became the messenger of the tale now unfolding. One soulchronicity followed by synchronicity after another anchoring further, the assurance all is in alignment with higher guidance and purpose.

My first and only visit to Egypt was when I was 12-13 years old. Our family sailed on the PO Oriana from Sydney to England via the then open Suez Canal with a stop in Port Said, Egypt. I still remember the views along the Nile, the people, the smells and the great desire to see more.

The calling to Alexandria and the site of the former ancient and now rebirthed Alexandria Bibliotheca is to attend the “Women Gathering for Global Change Conference” from March 16 to 19. Women and men will be gathering from all over the world to share, teach, learn and create new, revived, proven and hopeful dialogue and actions to further improve and change our collective and shared world. The conference is supported by the International Association of Sufism and the Human Foundation of Egypt.

Last night when talking of the trip with my 94 years old father he shared of the suffragette movement of the ‘20s that changed the world’s view of women.  “Maybe you (the conference) can accomplish the same thing at this gathering!” he commented.  That would be powerful beyond measure!

Among the many guided instructions I have been receiving was this one, “to take a labyrinth, walk it, hold ceremony on the land and then leave it there in Egypt!” The latest “Walking for World Peace” labyrinth with sacred geometries, (12ft x 15ft) will be with me, carrying the energy of Mount Shasta and the OM Crystal tone across the world.

Open and receptive to the unknown and unexpected, I journey to discover the messages, the stories, the people and the unity of hearts, souls, healing and purpose and to return RENEWED and CHANGED again.

 

Featured Art Piece:  Yellow Seeds Birth the New World Matrix    2013

This piece was created to celebrate 7/26/2013 to 7/25/2014 Year of the Yellow Galactic Seed. As the seed holds the matrix of life history pending birth, the Galactic Seed gave birth to a huge new matrix of feminine consciousness Earth will experience for the next 26,000 plus years.

 

 

 

What is Truth?

Earthspiritjourneys's Blog

Truth

as defined by

Earthly Laws and Understandings

is

Describable 

Definable 

Explainable 

Deniable 

And found outside of one’s Self and subject to the abuse of “authority” 

The people of Earth are and have been “governed and guided” (very loosely used) by this form of Truth for thousands of years. 

The results speak for themselves!

***********************************  

Truth

as defined by

Universal and Divine Laws

is

Undescribable

Undefinable

Unexplainable

Undeniable

And found within one’s Self and is subject to no lesser “authority” 

Now, (3/2010) and in the times to come, (2012 and beyond) the strength and visibility of these Laws will increasingly reveal “mistruths and abuses” in order for people everywhere to claim their personal authority, consciousness and directions for new life, health, governing and corporate structures on Earth.

Are You Ready to Take a Safe Look at Yourself?

It has been a long time between postings yet there is a good reason…..New Book is out!

“No Frills Guide to Self Empowerment Book I – Practical Steps that Work from the Living Matrix Series”.

MOUNT SHASTA, CA – April 22, 2015 – Life is stressful and filled with drama for people worldwide. Mental health appears to be at an all time low and solutions offered often create another set of problems. Research shows more people are seeking a simple, peaceful and fulfilling life no matter their economic class. Self Help and Holistic Body, Mind and Spirit approaches are being sort out over traditional therapies. New approaches and perspectives for solving old problems are more important than ever.

This unique guide appears to be an easy read yet it is filled with simple, deep and profound words and art to inspire a positive Self Image. “Keeping it simple allows the quiet refining process to go on within. It is called Alchemy” say author Ophelia.

“No Frills Guide to Self Empowerment Book I” has been borne from life experiences as a seeker and 20 years work experience as a guide for others on the journey. A few topics within the section What to Ponder on the Journey include a unique view of Personal Power; Stress, the Breath of Life and How to Breathe; How to Ground Oneself and Releasing Blame. In the short story to illustrate Release and Surrender, the reader is taken to the circus to watch trapeze artists. To illustrate Being in the Flow the reader joins a surfer on his board.

In the section on The Principles to Empowerment, the reader finds A Daily Mantra of Release and four steps in the Today I Empower Myself process. These steps are To Release, To Claim, To Give and To Receive.

“You cannot BECOME Empowered unless You Know Yourself…..Seek and Discover. It takes Courage, Time and Patience” say author Ophelia

Besides being author and artist, Rev. OPHELIA is a Life Alchemist (a life coach),  for Self Empowerment, Wellness, Stress Issues and Relationships and multidiscipline Creative Visionary OPHELIA uses THE ARTS (dance, art, theater, television) to express, communicate and teach about moving into a World of more SELF Awakened Consciousness.

The “No Frills Guide to Self Empowerment Book I” is now available on Amazon and soon to be in other outlets. At this time it is not out in ebook form as the presentation of format does not present well for the reader. This is a book to be handled, seen and experienced.

magnificence 2We all have those little or not so little traits that we would rather hide from others and/or avoid completely. That is, of course, until they come up and face you square in the eyes and have to be dealt with!

Procrastination and avoidance are what I have to admit to in this instance! Yet out of it has come some surprising revelations!

At the beginning of this year I decided it was time to change the name on my passport to match the name on my license, from one married name to other.

Before I go any further a side note: The male populations of most countries have no idea how lucky they are with the fact they don’t have to change their identity whenever they marry. Women on the other hand, from the dictates of many years past, are required to change their name to that of the husband, a beginning that was close to indicating ownership of someone or something. Thankfully now in many countries women have the choice to change their name or not.

Prior to 2001 having two names, traveling with all the right documents showing you are one and the same person was validated by the system when entering one or both names. You, your information and history were on the computer screen to be easily seen.

About five years ago the smoothness went to sticky to now it is stuck in mountains of super glued red tape, and even insiders have agreed with image!  This is where procrastination finally caught up with me!

In January with all the correct original documents backing up my life with these two names I had an interview in Phoenix, AZ. They took copies in the interview and fingerprints were done. Then the waiting game began. About 8 to 9 months till completion I was told.

Two weeks ago I receive a letter requesting all documentation to prove my names and reason for the change. Is it possible that the first set of documents I presented to the authorities are still sitting in a file box in Phoenix!

Next the letter stated the two sets of fingerprints taken that day were unacceptable and I now have to provide proof of where I have lived for the past 10 years.

Wow……how on earth am I going to achieve this! This took more than a couple of days to sink in and find the solution.

Of course for a great deal of people this would not be a problem. They have either lived in the same home or town for many, many years. For others a couple of moves are easy to track and paperwork abounds. From here the groups with increasing numbers of moves decrease in number.

In the past 13 years I have been a very fluid and free spirit. (Although that was not the case during my 25 years of marriages.) Life has been and still is a Spiritual Journey of Discovering Who I am, Why I am Here and What I Am to Give Back and be of Service to Life.

my little girl

1998 Nissan Sentra with 300,000 miles My Little Girl!

The search for answers begins with pencil and paper……I can name the locations, towns, city and states. Specific addresses were a challenge. I could picture the house, apartment or land but could not remember the physical addresses.

I had chosen to stop using credit cards in 2003 as part of the journey to learn and understand how money, abundance and prosperity flows or doesn’t in response to one’s need and wants. It was around that time that I realized how corrupt and unreal the money system really was. Thus for these reasons a credit report was of no use because I had no history to track.

Next the bank I had been using for 15 years. Their computer systems don’t keep track of former addresses. Old ones are deleted when updates are changed (or at least this is what I was told.) Then I tried the same thing with the car insurance company and the deal was the same. I thought about tax records but whatever I have are in a box in someone’s attic a long way from here.

STUCK! The obvious places were dead ends. I had some proof of addresses but holes remained!

On the surface my nomadic life was odd, random and uneasy for some people. For others there was the wish to be and do something similar. To find the answers I needed I had to look deeper.

Underneath I am unchanging and predictable: the same bank and insurance company for 15 years; the same cell phone number for 11 years; the same email address for 11 years; driven the same car for 16 years and she has just turned over 300,000 miles!

And there lay the answer! Since driving her off the lot in Sedalia, MO in 1998 with 500 + miles on the odometer, every time tires were purchased or service was done I would slip the finally paperwork into the glove box. I even have the original sales paperwork.

Sitting in the sun I laid out all the paperwork, put it in date and location order and there was the time line and mapping of life for 16 years. Now not only do I have the address proof needed but also confirmation of the same phone number, same vehicle, running tab of the mileage, directions traveled and locations visited and all the care given to Little Girl along the way.

Next week all this will be put to use to validate the requests of the letter mentioned.

What it has further given me is the time to review of the many places I have been, the wonderful people I have met, experiences share and lessons learned.

Where have you lived in the past 10 years? Is there a time line and map to show in black and white! Who have you met, what have you done, how have you grown…….where are you going from here?

So close to home, no it was our home and town…..that’s when we pay attention!

And that is also when true compassionate community comes together to set examples for change.

Like many others standing on the fringe, I offer the community and people of Weed prayers, blessings and support as I am able and capable of in the days, weeks and months to come. What that will look like I leave to the Great Divine Guide to show me the needs in time, space and way, physically, emotionally, mentally or spiritually.  The loss of everything can open the wells of Spirit to provide all new and the floods of tears break down the dams of resistance to cleanse the paths ahead.

This region has been covered with smoke for a good portion of the summer. Smoke coming from fires, big fires from Happy Camp, CA to Grant Pass, OR but they are not here and so not so personal unless you have a personal connection to the land and people there.

It has been four days since life changed for the residents of the Northern California towns of Weed and Mount Shasta. Both these communities with populations of about 3,000 year round have large spikes in the spring and summer months with visitors from all over the world.

The long hot and insanely dry summer and similar happenings last year have left the land, rivers, lakes and ponds dry to parched of water……a tinder box holding its breath.

The cause is still a big question – arson, accident, act of nature……..we may know or may never know only speculate yet the stories will be told.

The photos I share here tell a story of my observations and messages over 3 days. As an Alchemist, Meta-physician and  Healing Practitioner I look at most all situations from varying views and see possibilities and opportunities in the darkest places. As many are saying too….A renewal and rebirth for Weed is here. What it will look like is up to each one making different choices.

The first photos were taken as I walked to the Mount Shasta Farmer’s Market on Monday, totally unaware of the fire at that time. The title of each photo indicates the day and time taken. These first ones were taken in less than a minute…….look closely into the white mass of the wing image.

These photos were taken on Tuesday at Shastice Park. Earlier in the day I had the strong guidance to take my 12ft x 15ft Walking for World Peace Labyrinth up there and do Ceremony, thus I followed this message.

With my drum and Nia, my 10lbs Lemurian Record-keeper crystal I began. With prayers and song while walking the paths into the center to stand on OM. There the prayers expanded through me to include the dissolving, neutralizing and purifying of all the history held within the land and heritage of the people – of earth-bound spirits, abuse, slavery, government programs and manipulations of the 70s, greed, corruption, loss, both now and other times and on and on.

The drum beats became stronger, louder and faster as I turned and turned and turned with tears and sobs flowing more and more…….all coming to an abrupt stop as the top of the drum mallet flew off and landed feet away. Silence, stillness and rest as I melted to the ground in gratitude.

As I sat and rested these clouds formed over the mountain, as through they were coming out of the mountain. Because of the grey color and the release intuitively felt that indeed a massive release and cleansing had begun.

The last time I did a ceremony similar to this one was at 11,000ft in the Rockies outside of Denver on September 17, 2001 – six days after 9/11. I was doing it along with my dear soul sister Toby Evans who was holding ceremony on her land and labyrinth in Sibley, MO at exactly the same time.

Back in 2001 the days of Sept 16 and 17 were called, as per the Mayan prophesy ” The Days of Truth” and ceremonies were held all over the world.

And these photos were taken Wednesday afternoon and I really can’t describe them, just use your imagination and wonder of whether ET’s came home! View from Weed truck stop.

The Future – just pondering out loud!

Of course at the moment few can see or feel anything beyond the moment and that is as it should be for those so close.

For others on the edges and with talents, know-how, position and desire, new ideas and support can be life changing for this/these communities. It is not and cannot be “as we have always done it before” nor should it be. New visions for renewing the image of Weed and to bring new opportunities in. There is a wealth of talent and innovation already there….now to see a new place.

I heard there have been discussions about the ownership and access to the Springs of Weed which is under control of the Lumber Mill. Perhaps a new opening can come and be acceptable to all to free the  waters of life force in a beneficial way.

And to the two denominations losing their buildings…….what an amazing opportunity there is for Unity of Spirit rather than Separation of Doctrine. With experience “serving” congregations in the South and Mid-West for nine years I have seen the Church from the inside out. Without the confines of walls and vestments, while the weather permits,  worship in the breadth of air and land together, Catholic and Presbyterian. Bring together the separation started by King Henry 8th, annexing to become the Church of England and then Presbyterians of Scotland breaking from there.

One large rebuilding fund (instead of two) for Unity of Spirit and Cooperation through tragedy. We are all indeed One in and with Life and Soul and our Breath makes us Whole.

And there is so much more coming from amazing people everywhere…………….

Sacred Entry Mandala latest painting completed

Watching the movie Julie & Julia the other night reactivated the desire for the Muse to write again. Following the unfolding of Julie Powell’s journey through Julia Child’s “Mastering the Art of French Cooking” bought many moments of laughter, remembering Paris and the desire to eat wonderful French cuisine.

Although deemed a chick flick my friend thoroughly enjoyed the characters, antics, amazing food and of course Paris once again.

The break in writing has been long – too long – last entry way back in June while I was in Taos, NM.

After an absence of nine months from Mount Shasta I returned the second week of July to the mountain and waters I love and that feel more like home with each return, this one especially. On my way back from Taos I attended the 10 day Solstice Retreat of yoga, meditation and teaching at the Yogi Bhajan Puri outside of Espanola, NM. Powerful times with wonderful people and many experiences beyond words.earthship in Taos

From there I drove to Santa Rosa for a few days rest and then onto Santa Cruz for the 4 day West Coast Dowsing Conference where I presented on “Our Lives as Living Matrices” and my 12 x 15 foot Walking for World Peace Labyrinth, many experiencing its powerful healing and illuminating energies while walking it paths.

It was from here I headed north to the mountain. A day earlier my mother passed, albeit it occurred 12,000 miles away in Australia. My son was with her and in the last phone call he held the phone up and I talked to her and remembered for 20 minutes or so. Suddenly the connection dropped out. Jerame called back a few minutes later

and said “she has passed”. I am so grateful for those moments we had. Ours had been a mother/daughter relationship often of challenge and I had not been to Australia for twelve years, each attempt stopped for lack of funds or issues going on.

The moments afterwards were amazing. I literally knew she was free, liberated and happy as never before. I saw “her essence” and still do as never before also and I still do feel and know she is close to me. It has been the most unexpected experience and I am grateful.

I have also found my life and Being has changed and I am more content, joyful and blessed that ever before it seems. I am experiencing something she desired yet never was able to have or attain and I believe her heart is rejoicing from such healing.

south gate meadow, mt shastaThis time in Mount Shasta has been special for many reasons. Beautiful hikes to South Gate (aka Squaw Meadow); Panther Meadow, Castle Lake, camping on the mountain, singing, cooking new recipes, sharing with lots of laughter accompanied by a dear friend. Friendship, laughter, challenge, love, respect – all these make a powerful mixture.

Also new and former clients have surfaced requesting my guidance and assistance. Several very powerful sessions with them have facilitated awakenings, healing and new life perspectives for their consideration. This work is where I take Life Coaching to the realm of Life Alchemy.

The Muse’s quiet appearance came with a push to create an E-Book (as it is faster than regular publishing) of my Art, Stories and Poetry with the dedication to my grand children most specifically. “Something for them to know more about you, as Mehmah, when they are older”. With such a purpose it is more likely to get completed! At least so far there are 15 + pages committed.

music on the mountainUpon rising each day I ask

“And how does it get better than this!”

And remember

“Anyone or anything that does not make you come alive is TOO SMALL for YOU!
