Delayed Social Security Payments May Prevent Default But Would Cause Disaster

Today’s headline…..and oh such audacity they have in DC!

How about a gifted donation from the top 400 BILLIONAIRES in this country of a few hundred million or a billion each to cover all they have gathered over the years, from those like you and I!

How about all representatives of the people fore go their salaries for the next month and feel as the rest of the population feels with such headline threats!

Perhaps it is time for all those who believe they are in power to feel humility of their life, strip down to their shorts and sit on the earth of the Washington Mall and give thanks for being such great tools
and expressions of what they now represent…..

Stop the insane partisan posturing for it means naught……..

Action of integrity will only show truth…….and that must start at the top with every single one of you…..

DO YOU HAVE SUCH COURAGE?

At the end of the day and your time on earth power, possession, fears, greed, intolerance will mean nothing…..for all one seeks is that Light and Love and Peace secured by the Divine God, Creator.

And so it is!

In the wee hours of last Tuesday morning my friend Stephanie and I arrived back from our trip to the desert, Palm Springs and Joshua Tree, to visit a friend. We knew it would be hot but you know, you forget how hot, hot is! Our 5 days ranged from 104 to 109 degrees, with nights in the high 80s! It was too hot for Stephanie so she spent most of the days inside beside a fan. Pool water was not much of a relief as it boarded on bath temp water.

I had to get out and made several trips to the town Joshua Tree, twenty-five miles from Palm Springs. The two main reasons people come to the town are Joshua Tree National Park and the Joshua Tree Retreat Center or The Institute of Mentalphysics. Joshua Tree Main Street has a small selection of cafe, restaurants and bars, craft and souvenir, bank, gas and necessities and not much else. Yubba Valley just six miles away provides the locals with all their shopping needs.  The Retreat Center of 400 plus areas hosts classes, gatherings and festivals throughout the year and people come from all over the world.

I was told the National Park brings 200,000 plus visitors to this little town, although very few actually stop here, they just keep of driving! I learned to appreciate the stark beauty of the summer desert in New Mexico. Dry parched soil. Plants and cactus varieties have adapted and sustained themselves in spite of the dryness and heat. Amazing rock formations dot the landscape and offer protection for the occasional oasis that appear out of nowhere, offering wildlife the blessing of water. For me, walking, sitting and taking in the beauty of nature, feeling the ancestors in the wind and listening to the calls of wildlife bring peace and clarity not found in the everyday hustle bustle world.

Medicine Gardening

The other morning started with a major weeding project before installing a drip system in the veggie garden. A couple of weeks ago the then “innocent looking” weeds didn’t look too threatening but after lovely sunshine, lots of water and a week away the growth was tremendous. At the same time the veggies had made good progress but not to the same degree. This year as a medicine woman gardener I have marveled at the fact we have had no problems with destructive bugs, fungus or gophers, even though there are holes in many of the beds. We have used nothing at all and the soil seems balanced and accommodating to all varieties. Loving medicine magic seems to work except with the weeds!

Walking for World Peace

In the last blog I mentioned a new offering of beautiful custom hand-painted labyrinths available for anyone or any business/organization looking to enhance the body, mind and spirit connections for those in the lives. Unbeknown to me at the time this project was/is to get bigger and after much ignoring of such a fact I stepped into the guidance. You are still able to order your very own beautiful labyrinth from Earth Spirit Journeys

“Walking for World Peace” is the name of this project and will be initiated this weekend at the Mystic Garden Gathering in Selma, Or. (A gathering I never expected to ever attend….shows what I know!) The new focus of this music gathering will enhancing and understanding community more, empowering through great and diverse music, yoga,  meditation, dance and sharing without drugs  and alcohol. Last night as a few of the volunteers shared fabulous pizza cooked on the open fire, rain drizzling in the background (it later rained all night), I listened and learned from the young adults present, the ages of my sons, some of their desires, fears, understandings and realities. And I understood why I am to be present.  They want a better world, not most of the garbage that is being presented for in 30 years this generation will be the leaders of the world….a very new world of their creation….not the one that is crumbling before our eyes.

They know, as so many of us already know, change happens from within first, to then emanate out into the world through actions, integrity, purpose and vision. Walking the labyrinth is a practice to get in touch and claim the grounded self. “Walking for World Peace” will be a video diary of everyone who participates beginning this weekend and coincides with Dr. Emoto’s Prayers for the Waters of Japan and the World on July 25th. On Monday I’ll be at Aquarius Books in Grants Pass, OR and the following weekend in Mt Shasta at a City Park festival. After that I am to take the labyrinth down through various communities in California and then beyond. Each month I ‘ll put out the video diary of all who are sharing in Walking for World Peace.” To support the travel and editing expenses of this project each person who walks the labyrinth will be asked to gift a donation as an energy exchange…..all amounts will be accepted in great gratitude.

World Peace WILL NOT come through the lack of war, anger, greed, corruption and power.

It will come and does come as EACH PERSON grows in peace within themselves, in understanding of themselves and their roles in life…..a not so easy and never ending seeking journey…..even when one leaves this life it continues in more earnest. Another topic!

If you would like to host or have Waling for World Peace come to your community please let me know.

Young or old, rich or poor ….we are all equal in the eyes of the Divine Creator by all names, colors, creeds and beliefs!

Begin each day at home or at your place of work with a quiet walk on the labyrinth paths. Clear your head and emotional clutter. Set a daily goal or intention. Allow the vibrational energy of the labyrinth’s natural circuitry “dissolve, neutralize and balance your own energy fields” and start the day anew!

What is a Labyrinth

“Your life is a sacred journey. And it is about change, growth, discovery, movement, transformation; continuously expanding your vision of what is possible, stretching your soul, learning to see clearly and deeply, listening to your intuition, taking courageous challenges at every step along the way. You are on the path… exactly where you are meant to be right now… And from here, you can only go forward, shaping your life story into a magnificent tale of triumph, of healing of courage, of beauty, of wisdom, of power, of dignity, and of love.” 
Caroline Adams

We are all on the path… exactly where we need to be. The labyrinth is a model of that path.

A labyrinth is an ancient symbol that relates to wholeness. It combines the imagery of the circle and the spiral into a meandering but purposeful path. The Labyrinth represents a journey to our own center and back again out into the world. Labyrinths have long been used as meditation and prayer tools.

A labyrinth is an archetype with which we can have a direct experience. We can walk it. It is a metaphor for life’s journey. It is a symbol that creates a sacred space and place and takes us out of our ego to “That Which Is Within.”

Labyrinths and mazes have often been confused. When most people hear of a labyrinth they think of a maze. A labyrinth is not a maze. A maze is like a puzzle to be solved. It has twists, turns, and blind alleys. It is a left brain task that requires logical, sequential, analytical activity to find the correct path into the maze and out.

A labyrinth has only one path. It is unicursal. The way in is the way out. There are no blind alleys. The path leads you on a circuitous path to the center and out again.

A labyrinth is a right brain task. It involves intuition, creativity, and imagery. With a maze many choices must be made and an active mind is needed to solve the problem of finding the center. With a labyrinth there is only one choice to be made. The choice is to enter or not. A more passive, receptive mindset is needed. The choice is whether or not to walk a spiritual path.

At its most basic level the labyrinth is a metaphor for the journey to the center of your deepest self and back out into the world with a broadened understanding of who you are.

The colors of the labyrinth represent the Chakra System of the Body:

Red – 1st chakra – Root – beginning, survival, earth grounded

Orange – 2nd chakra – Sacral – reproduction, creativity, unity of male and female energy

Yellow – 3rd chakra – Solar Plexus – emotional balance and well being, gut instincts,

Green – 4th chakra – Heart – Love, compassion, openness, deep healing

Blue – 5th chakra – Throat – Communication, voice, expression

Turquoise – Thyroid – personal power (not shown)

Voilet – 6th  chakra – Third Eye – intuition, psychic abilities, vision

Magenta – 7th chakra – Crown – place of Divine Connection and light

Before entering the labyrinth stand still, take a few deep breathes and clear your mind. The journey to the center is one of acknowledging and releasing something or an issue that is of no good for you now. Maybe a habit, idea, perception, person, etc!

As you slowly walk the paths, clear the mind and focus on the color of the place in your body it represents. Don’t worry about the issue, that part is complete when you have stated it!

Slowly follow the colored paths back and forth in the correct order.

When you arrive at the center, stand still, close your eyes, take a few deep slow breathes in and out, feel the presence of a beam of light coming down from the heavens, through the top of your head, all the way down the body and into the earth. Feel this light beam as a rod of strength, love and peace. Take a few more slowly deep breathes.

Turn in a clockwise direction to begin the walk out following the paths in reverse order. Slowly feel the awareness moving from your head down through each part of the body, each step integrating your energy more fully.

During this time there may be sensations inside you of tingling, rushing energy, heat or cold, visions, thoughts….whatever they are, just let them move – this is the integration of “stuff” being released and the “new” energy balancing itself within.

In your journal make note of any messages, visions, feelings, discomforts you experienced.

And as the Angels whispered I turned to hear their voices rejoice with love, joy and truth that all the world seeks!”

My grandson Brayden taken by his mother Shannon Gray

So many wonderful and precious memories flood back as reminders of the early days of parenthood with my son’s Jerame and Mathew.

Yet what else surfaced the moment I saw this beautiful photograph was myself in times throughout my life history, innocent and praying in a purity of Light. How precious a vibration to hold for conscious change within and without!

July is hot and filled with travel!

Growing up in the southern hemisphere, July was pushing the mid point of winter and staying warm was mostly on one’s mind. In those days of youth I was not into meditation as that was done when I lost myself in classical ballet. Looking back though, July was a marker of changes being irritated from within because September  (6 months after my birthday) mostly marked big change and travel, especially from 18 years old until now.

This is part of the energetic vibrational pattern of my life established by and through my Soul’s history and evolution. Can you recognize your own personal life patterns and Soul history for clues of your patterns?  Markers are often found during: birthday month; 4th month following; mid point month and 9th/10th month before next birthday. Markers may have to do with major moves or change, illnesses, family dynamics, emotional lows and highs, so many different possibilities. See what you can intuit from these awareness’s!

Since living in the northern hemisphere, July (especially the first week) now has the opposite message but similar theme but physically: staying cool, it is one of moving, traveling and changes of all types. Major family moves and life changes initiating new beginnings have happened at this time.

Tomorrow, along with my friend Stephanie, we are heading to Palm Springs and Joshua Tree in the desert of California. Sounds crazy seeing the temperatures will be 108 +! Something is calling, the need to travel, get out and have a little adventure. The call of Joshua Tree in particular is big yet we have no idea of what to expect. Let us be surprised!

Pull It Back to Bring It Forward!

“Peaking through the veils of our New Earth and her incredible promise now of Light and Joy I see such moments to remember as the innocence of first love which is more importantly friendship; of magic in youth in places still resonating magic; of so many angels sharing and protecting and gifting the lessons to greater wisdom of heart and soul. Resonating in magic and Unity of Oneness, memory of threads the Angelic’s weave to see and remember who we lost to gain and claim ourselves again.”

In the past two weeks I have been taken both in dreamtime and in waking light to reminisce of special relationships and their importance in who I am becoming in the next wave on this amazing life journey.

Speaking to several friends this past week has revealed that they to are experiencing a remembering of times and events in their teens, 20s and early 30s. Remembering who we were, what was special about each of us during those incredible years of development through the stages of family and fitting into the constrains of child rearing and income/identity masks. What was lost to become someone else for someone else!

Claim back your magic to be able to resonate and live in harmony with the You of the past, blending with the wisdom of the Now to ignite possibilities with the New Earth Light Harmonics!

This is living in fifth dimension mysticism!

In my last posting I mentioned Part 2 of the video on Time Collapsing would be coming. Well, after having many false starts, glitches and plain, not good production, I put it on hold for now…perhaps I am not to reinvent the wheel so to speak.

Check out this YouTube site…it is long but they have done a fabulous job of giving the viewer  concise and  important information on 2012, time, history and so much more.   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jc-55p1Al9k&feature=channel_video_title

One of the wonderful features WordPress are the stats that are available about one’s blog.  To my surprise probably the most visited blog entry has been on my experience at the Lakota Sundance several years ago. It appears there is an incredible interest and fascination about this Native American ceremony. It was a significant time for me and powerful way to respect beautiful people of this land.

There are so many stories to share!
