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.

Gosh! It has been quite a while since placing words to paper but I am here now, at least with a short posting today.

Creative Juices Flowing

Yesterday I made it over the hump with the creative project I have been immersed in for the past three weeks plus. Friday and Saturday I hit the proverbial brick wall, making the task at hand way more complicated than necessary…..walks, self-talk, stepping back to gain objectivity and a good dose of ego surrendering finally cleared the way to the obvious solution and voila…..ease in creation once again!

Why, when we know better, do we allow the analytical brain to take charge (even for a short time) and throw everything off course! In this case I believe it was to take me to the place of “the beginner’s mind”……the place of innocent exploration of new and uncharted ways of seeing and doing…..the final message that pounded through my intuitive  mind was “simple, simple, simple…..keep it simple!  And this advise we forget all too often in the everyday hustle and bustle of life!

Another reason for engaging a beginner’s mind. When creating, teaching and most especially when writing instructions, it is vital to go back to the beginner’s mind and put oneself in the shoes of those who will be reading and using the instructions. All too often when lessons and instructions are written without due diligence vital “obvious steps” are missed or assumed the reader will know…..and we have all been there….the pieces don’t fit, a step is missed and what is suppose to be easy is anything but! Part of being an expert is to also remember how it feels to be a beginner!

I will be keeping you in suspense a few days longer as to what “the project” is about…..only I will say that I plan the official launch on 12-12-12..the final gateway.

Can you feel the intensity building?

This weekend marked the midpoint between the galactic gateway initiation on 11-11-11 and the final galactic gateway initiation on 12-12-12 when the last crystal grid activation will take place, namely the Ruby Fire Crystal of Energy in Bimini and the Sacred Crystal of Thoth in Bolivia.

(a message from Metatron channeled by Tyberonn)

These are defined, located and placed with activation dates as follows:

Arkansas

(1) Blue Crystal of Knowledge 8-8-8

(2) Emerald Crystal of Healing 9-9-9

(3) Platinum Crystal of Communication 11-11-11 ( Bio-Plasmic Interface)

Bimini Bank:

(1) The Ruby Fire Crystal of Energy 12-12-12

Brazil:

(1) Gold Crystal of Healing Regeneration 9-9-9 ( Diamante Bahia)

(2) Violet Crystal of Sound 10-10-10 ( Sao Tomas des Letres- Minas Gerais)

Mount Shasta:

(1) The Crystal of Multidimensional Interface 9-9-9

Tiajuanaco-Lake Titicaca, Bolivia:

(1) Sun-Moon Crystal of Light 9-9-9

(2) Sacred Crystal of Thoth 12-12-12

With much for you to explore in the articles by Tyberonn and others you will find on Spirit Library I will sign off for now.

During these next two weeks pay attention to what is happening, leaving, coming into and grabbing your attention in your everyday life and relationships. Use as much intuition as you can to make decisions and actions to take….be gentle on yourself and others and get rest as much as possible. With the tremendous increase in magnetic/electrical/vibrational frequencies swirling around our bodies can get overloaded more easily.

For the past two weeksI have been having regular detox baths (4 days apart) using epson salts, baking soda and sea salt ( a cup of the first two, half a cup of salt). Inexpensive and effective and feels wonderful afterwards. I use coconut oil on the skin afterwards. Very important…..drink a lot more good water everyday to hydrate yourself….try to stay away from chlorinated city water.

Until we connect again…..Many Blessings to All!

Curious about what 2012 has in store for you….now is time to think about getting a Numerology Chart for mapping out the “frequency influence” for each week of each month of the year. You will be amazed how accurate the charts can be! Contact me through my website contact page for details. http://www.earthspiritjourneys.com

This morning, wrapped in a warm blanket to protect from the cool mountain air I sat in meditation. The warm southern sun feeling so good after several days of clouds, cold, rain and blahs!

As the cocoon warmed, the mind stilled and partially emptied of thoughts and dialogue…..peaceful. This week is huge as most of you know. The big build up to 11-11-11 and another full moon heralding yet more dynamic shifts in the energetic and vibrational life forces on Earth and within Humanity.

Awaken! Awaken! It is the time!

The mind chatter started and this phrase kept repeating itself within me…a meditation in itself! As its continued force moved to cells and the blueprint matrix of all fields within and around me became aware….Awaken! Awaken! It is the Time!

I/We have been waiting for the tangible signs of this most intangible phenomenon….they are here yet they are not! Then my mind took me to remember some of the many clues from days gone by of perhaps Who and What I have incarnated for in this Lifetime.

As I share these very few pieces of awakening for me, I encourage you to also follow the awakening threads of your journey thus far….what is revealed to you?

The mind stilled and then revealed……

The very earliest memory I have is of 3 years old, before my brother was born. Living on the waterfront in Palm Beach, north of Sydney (back then it was a days trek to get there from the city.) Standing near a large tree (mother took a photo of me and the tree that day). A group of nuns in black habits come to the beach to swim. They all started taking off the layers of clothing and it was when the veils started coming off revealing bald heads that I became frightened and hid behind the tree. Laughingly, they spoke and tried to coax me out, I stayed out of deep curiosity more than anything. Of course we all know nuns don’t strip off their clothes and swim…..I know this was a visit from other worlds!

In the warmth of the morning sun I went back into quiet time within the mind……another memory came back.

This was when I was 6-7 years old. My father, along with another engineer, started building tape recorders in a small garage in Cremorne, a suburb of Sydney. Not long after that he opened “Magnetic Sound Industries” on George St, Sydney. For anyone living in Sydney between the mid 50s to early 80s, my father Peter Clark, was known as the Sound Magician and he really opened up the tape recorder and Hi Fi industry in Australia. He could hear the tiniest change in sound, he knew how create combinations of equipment (speakers, amps, tape decks, etc) to get as perfect a sound as possible back then. He taught me to hear and listen and feel sound frequencies.

That image moved away and the sun warmed my face and body…stillness again.

Around 13-14 years old the world expanded again. Sitting at the window in my bedroom, holding the treasured “transistor radio” with the antenna extended out of the window searching the skies for radio stations from other parts of Australia and the World. Most every night I would do the same ritual. Using the dial to tune into the radio frequencies able to penetrate the atmosphere and ignite the crystals within the radio…..I could hear the world coming to me…sometimes in English…mostly in other languages yet it didn’t matter, I was just enthralled. Living on the other side of the world in the stillness of my night and connecting to other worlds!

Stillness and warmth again…..

Hands of Healing appeared and a vision of the Hathors. Ancient, light-filled, beyond Earth…..hands held up and light energy eliminating forth, dancing along the vibrational waves all around. This was Me remembering how and why the knowledge of Light Healing Power  was/is activated through me in this lifetime all the way to today. Through experience I have witnessed incredible events and healing and know there is so much more to be received as We Awaken! This vision continued moving through my ages of 8 years old until today…..the young dancer whose body moved and flowed with the technical training of a classical ballet dancer…..and always it was through my hands came the greatest expression…..energy flowing and moving through and out, touching others. These days I speak a lot with my hands. It is so special to watch another’s eyes catch sight of light, energy and colors flowing as I speak…..making the intangible, tangible, so to speak!

Quiet again, mind is still and sun is continuing to warm…….

A diamond patterned tapestry is on the wall before me. I am sitting at a table surrounded by others at a dinner party. The woman opposite me makes mention of a recent trip to Egypt. Behind her, a diamond moves and opens….and then becomes dimensionally deeper into the tapestry and wall. I am traveling into the diamond light, further and further into this tunnel…..not seeing yet knowing there are rooms or places behind the light….moving deeper in yet still hearing voices on the outside of the vision. Light expanding into a room/space of vibrant light vibrating with beauty. I had reached the inner space within the diamond within the Great Pyramid but it is not the one known as Giza….it is one within one, within one, yet to be found!

Under the light are scenes of lower light, people playing with genes and machines, Dr Who comes to mind….scenes of desolation and pain are dissolved as I hold and witness…..Awaken! Awaken! When the time is right Diamond Light will Activate!

As Light begins to change I move backwards out of the tunnel, back through the diamond pattern and rest quietly in the chair again….all eyes turned toward me puzzled and curious. The explanation I gave then could only scratch the surface and was suffice for then.

Awaken! Awaken! It is Time!

Part Three of the message from Metatron by Tyberonn awakened all of this again. As yet another activation of the massive communicating crystals of the planet will occur on 11-11-11, with a prime focus on the Arkansas Mountains another memory came forth….

Of the time in October, 2000 when I went of Vision Quest in those very same mountains, activated by the crystal power deep within the core.

I am in gratitude of all those in my life journey thus far who have been friends, lovers, teachers, creators and co-creators. Many know who you are, many others do not know how you have touched my life and been part of my AWAKENING. We often have no idea how we affect and effect others….I hope I have touched some lives in the same way and been a Seed of Awakening for them.

We are awakening to the Core, as the core of an apple holds seeds….so too as we peel and reveal….Our Core holds the Seeds of Purpose and Life to unfold……

Remember! Remember!

Feet to the Corporate Fire

Nearly three weeks ago I decided to upgrade my Sprint phone, from the slow 2008 basic model to a 2011 basic model. I don’t need all the bells and whistles and although I was really resistant to signing a contract (last one expired in 2009) I had been with Sprint for the past 12 years + and decided to stay.

The nightmare began when this “el cheapo” was delivered to the wrong address (no logical reason why!) and an employee there decided she needed the phone more than I did and stole it, then she disappeared! Since then I have spent hours and hours, with an untold number of reps and supervisors trying to resolve it after the second phone didn’t arrive. With each day of conversation another issue comes to the surface….in all it has come down to corporate integrity in honoring what “was not recorded from conversations and vague suggestions. After 4 hours on the phone from numerous disconnects and no return calls, a series of supervisors meaning well but stuck in the red tape and my continued request for correct integrity in all business transactions….today finally ended with a new phone on its way and a total of $100 in credits to acquiesce the inconveniences. I am and will continue to hold the vision of the phone arriving and credits  being applied to my account!

Medical Vedic Astrology  with Guest Vedic Astrologer  Laura Barat

Recently I went through a couple of weeks of crazy itching and spider bites on my skin. At my wits end, I contacted my friend Laura Barat who specializes in Vedic Astrology. In a reading I had in March she asked if I had any skin issues, to which I responded No! This month they showed up!

Her response to the problem was mentioning that Mercury was afflicted in my chart this year, it is associated with skin problems and the sense of smell. As Mercury is also associate with communications I interrupted this situation to be telling me: (1) I needed to hydrate the body by drinking more water; (2) there was an imbalance in the harmonics of the location (web) I was living in; (3) it was pushing me out to leave, detox internally and externally, relax and tap into the creative juices once again.

As I thought other readers may be interested in learning more on this topic I asked Laura to give a short explanation on the Planets and the Elements in relation to Vedic Medical Astrology. Here are links to know more about Laura  and research the topics on her site.

Vedic Astrology is based on the focus of the Moon’s placement at birth as opposed to Western Astrology that focuses on the Sun’s placement at birth. What I have found so very interesting when comparing readings of both versions over the years is that even though the beginning reference points are different, there are always overlaying confirmations of issues, traits, karma, personality, etc., only the interruption is unique to the practitioner.  As far as I am concerned, the more we can discover about ourselves, from many perspectives, ancient and modern, we are that much ahead of claiming and understanding one life more clearly.

Here is Laura’s description. (Note: for those new to Vedic/Sanskrit/Indian language some of the words in the beginning paragraphs will be confusing. If so, scroll down to the main three topics The Five Organs of Sense; The Five Organs of Action; The Five Objects of the Sense. When you feel more comfortable with the Vedic concepts, read more on  the introductions.

Planets and The Elements

There are five elements or ‘Pancha Tattvas’ that are the causal form of Purusha and make up creation.  ‘Pancha’ means five and ‘Tattvas’ mean ‘true essences’.  These elements are Fire, Earth, Ether, Water and Air ruled by the planets Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn, respectively, according to this sutra from Brihat Parasara Hora Sastra:

“Fire, Earth, Ether, Water and Air, in that order, o’Twice Born, from Mars and the other Grahas in their order are the Tattvas.”   -BPHS:  Nature and Form of the Grahas, 20

The Vedas contain instructions on how to placate and worship the elements.  The elements are actually the causal manifestation of Purusha that creates all that is.  The Elements came first and then the planets were born from the Elements.

Each of the Five Tattvas or Elements has a Sattvic, Rajasic and Tamasic quality.  The Sattvic qualities of the Elements manifests through the five senses.  Our senses are called ‘Organs of Knowledge’ in the Srimad Bhagavatam.  These organs of knowledge are necessary for our growth and evolution.  It is only through abuse by human beings that the senses have been given a bad name.  Since the senses are Sattvic, they have an elevating quality that will bring us closer to the Source if used properly.

The Five Organs of Sense

The Sattvic attributes of the Five Elements are the Organs of Sense.  They are as follows:

Ether is ruled by Jupiter and causes the Sense of Hearing. Through Hearing we acquire knowledge from Sound.  For a person to be able to hear, Ether must be present.  Conversely, for someone to have poor hearing, Jupiter must be afflicted in the horoscope.

Air is ruled by Saturn and causes the Sense of Touch:  Through Touch we acquire knowledge from Tangibility. For a person to be able to feel touch and differentiate the object of touch, Air must be present. Conversely, for a person to not be able to feel or lack acquiring knowledge through touch, Saturn must be afflicted in the horoscope.

Fire is ruled by Mars and causes the Sense of Sight.  Through Sight we acquire knowledge from Light and Colors.  For a person to be able to see, Fire must be present.  Conversely, Mars must be afflicted in a horoscope if the person has poor eyesight.

Water is ruled by Venus and causes the Sense of Taste:  Through Taste we acquire knowledge from Flavors.  For a person to be able to taste, Water must be present.  Conversely, Venus must be afflicted in the horoscope if a person has a poor sense of taste.

Earth is ruled by Mercury and causes the Sense of Smell.  Through Smell we acquire knowledge of Odors.  For a person to be able to smell, the Element of Earth must be present.  Conversely, a person has a poor sense of smell if Mercury is afflicted in the horoscope.

Because the organs of sense are Sattvic, they are elevating in nature and pure when the organs of sense are working properly.  They are Sattvic because one acquires knowledge through their organs of sense.

The Five Organs of Action

The Rajasic attributes of the Five Elements are the Organs of Action. They are as follows:

Fire is ruled by Mars and causes the Action of Motion.  Feet hold the primary power of motion, but all motion of the body is ruled by Mars.  Most motion is guided by Sight which is also ruled by Mars.  All motion must have fire, or in this case the electrical impulses carried by the nerves, which is ruled by Mars.  For a person to have afflicted motion Mars must be afflicted in a horoscope.  Notice how people with paralysis or partial paralysis cannot move, the electrical impulses are not carried along the nerves or the spinal cord.

Earth is ruled by Mercury and causes the Action of Excretion.  The anus holds the primary power of excretion but all excretory actions are ruled by Mercury and the Earth Element.  Sweating is also considered to be excretory as well as acne.

Ether is ruled by Jupiter which causes the Action of making Sound.  The power of Sound lies in the vocal chords.  If a person cannot use their vocal chords to make sound, then Jupiter must be afflicted in the horoscope.

Water is ruled by Venus which causes the action of Generation.  The power of generation lies within the sexual organs, but it also lies within all tissues that can repair themselves.  Water and food, both ruled by Venus, satiate us after exertion.  These things give us recuperation.  Venus also rules ‘Virya’ which loosely translates as semen.  Venus rules the vitality in the body.  When Venus is afflicted in a horoscope, then it takes a long time for the person to recover after exercise or illness.

Air is ruled by Saturn and causes the Action of Manual Skill, of which the power lies in the hands.  Manual dexterity is ruled by Saturn as is all manual labor.  Saturn rules the menial and when manual labor is a person’s profession, their caste is ruled by Saturn.  When a person has poor manual dexterity, then Saturn must be afflicted in the horoscope.

The Five Objects of the Sense

The objects of the senses are Tamasic, meaning they are obscuring.  The purpose of the five objects of sense is to satisfy the longings of the heartJupiter as Ether produces space.    Saturn as Air produces gasesMars as Fire, produces fire, electricity and energy.  Venus as Water produces liquidsMercury as Earth produces solids.  Space, air, fire, liquids and solids can all be experienced by the senses.  The two luminaries, the Sun and the Moon rule over the Atman or Higher Self and the Jiva or Individual respectively.  The Higher Self and the Individual are the ones experiencing the objects of sense.

Fear, which is the great cause of all neurosis and psychosis, is the number one contributing factor to abusing the objects of sense and not feeling satiated and at peace.  When the desires are not satisfied within a certain time frame, the person begins to fear that they will not be satisfied, and will crave more satiation through another source.  This gives rise to many different desires cropping up that cannot be satisfied all at once.  So the person half-heartedly pursues many different desires which cannot all be satisfied in one lifetime.  The unmet desires are still manifest within the psyche when the person dies, so the consciousness must be reborn to satisfy the numerous desires.  The best course to take, to avoid acquiring numerous desires and having numerous longings is to concentrate the mind on satisfying one desire at a time.  Turn one’s whole attention on fulfilling one desire, then the psyche can find more peace and satisfy the desires of the heart.

I hope you have enjoyed this information and can apply it in your life.

Who inspires you? Is there anyone who has touch you in such a way that you are lost for words!

People generally answer this question with the names of someone famous, powerful, has lots of money, or perhaps a teacher or relative that touched their lives early on. My father’s (now 89 and still creatively working) creativity and perseverance has inspired me, although I do know that at times in his life he has not been a nice person, so to speak. There are not really a lot or actually anyone I could name that I would “like to be or emulate!” There are those who do great work yet it is the unnamed or little known and quiet beings that inspire me. I was inspired by the peasants I met in the several “slave camps” on sugar cane plantations in Haiti and Dominican Republic. When leaving one camp, a woman carried a huge branch of bananas out to our bus and in her mix of Haitian Creole repeated ‘merci, merci, (thank you, thank you!) No, I was thanking her and the village for their gift of open spirit!

In such less than ideal situations their spiritual joy and strength and the bright colors in their art glistened through only to magnify the lack of spiritual joy and strength exhibited by most of the members of the group I was traveling with. Material wealth, which is relative, does not translate into the higher realms by any stretch of the imagination. Today more than ever!

Re-igniting Creative Force

In the past couple of weeks my world has been one of seeing and feeling my re-igniting creative force within theater, dance and inspiring people. And it would seem that each experience came effortlessly into happening.

It started with the last minute decision to go to a “one man show – Gross, Mystical” by Eliot Fintushel on the poems and writings of Walt Whitman’s  Leaves of Grass. He did an incredible performance not only bringing Whitman’s words to life but also his playing instruments such as a hurdy-gurdy, waterphone, sruti, and bulbul tarang. The small audience present was gifted by such talent!

The following night, Sunday, was picnicking with a friend in the park before watching a slightly more modern version (Costume wise) of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing. Even though there were not a huge amount of people in the audience, the actors did a wonderful performance and audience participation provided many light hearted moments.

My out of practice body got to move and swing on the dance floor. My friend Paul is a former improv dancer so it was fun going between venues of improv/ecstatic dance and what seemed the more sedate remembering of a room full of 40-70 year olds dancing to a band of well worn turns. Michael Boliver and his sax added a nice blend into the mix. I laughed at myself as well as others!

The creative flow again continued at a wonderful celebration for the new book by a truly amazing theater couple who have been married/performed together for 50 years. Conrad Bishop and Elizabeth Fuller of the Independent Eye, Visionary Theatre read from their book. I was so touched and amazed at their story, life dedication to their craft, creative power and expression, their humility, sense of humor and truth. As I listened my tears freely flowed as I could so identify with what they had endured, created, had rejected, lost, won and all the while kept going…..I laughed at their stories of travels and situations that I could also identify with. Most of all I felt a pain of understanding when they shared performing for an audience of 3, a creation that had taken months and months to evolve and put out. At one point it was read (paraphrasing) “we know we will never be famous or will ever make a lot of money….we create because that is what we have to do!” Their book is “Co-Creation – Fifty Year in the Making.

Another gathering I attended last Saturday was in Guerneville at the Center for Sacred Studies. This was an afternoon of conversation with Grandmother Flordemayo, President/Member of the International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers. Amid a generous gathering she shared some of her plant medicine and wisdom and stories of her own journey and her very personal connection to the ancient mystery of the Crystal Skulls. To learn about these thirteen grandmothers watch the wonderful film on their journey to create world peace.

Re-igniting Creative Force is taking me back to the time I was creating/hosting a television program and writing for Conscious-Awakening Theatre as well as my connection to quite a few people who are now making major moves in their lives. Some across the country, others to distant lands.

The topic is STORAGE and POSSESSIONS. And moving always brings it up to face directly. Paying for storage is paying rent or a mortgage on the past! Possessions possess us! Money can also mean “Material Obligations Neutralize Evolving Yourself!” From Awakening and Igniting Ecstasy In-Formation…New Twists on Money, Power, Sex and Death”

Writings, video, exercises, consultations and seminars will take you through many journeys to come to terms with, raise above and even let go of the obsessive possession of Possessions!

Don’t be scared…..I’ll be gentle……I have been where you are and know the pit falls and the great release is a gift!

Until next time……

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.

Summer has arrived in the Northern Hemisphere and the heat with it. In the Southern Hemisphere winter is making itself known as the shortest day of the year is expressed in the late rising and early setting of the sun heralding a long dark night ahead. When I am today the temps are pushing 100 degrees with dry hot air. Such is the welcoming for this powerful Summer Solstice celebration!

In places near and far there are gatherings to celebrate and honor yet another cycle of nature. Tonight, along with a couple of friends, we will gather with others to drum and sing in the pleasant night air. Such will be a finale of sorts to a very powerful weekend retreat and for me the end four weeks of very intense, sometimes challenging, often joyful and definitely self-expanding experiences. And it is because of all this that I have been rather neglectful of postings, in fact, writer’s block was such that my mind could only see a blank page most of the time. Let’s hope this is at an end!

The Earth Spirit Vision Quest Retreat was a wonderful experience for me to once again facilitate. From Friday to Sunday thirteen sojourners –  6 women and 7 men sort the Vision. To have more men than women participating was a profound affirmation and honor. The men were from quite different backgrounds and social standings, as were the women, yet all joined, shared and learned about varying perceptions and science on 5th Dimension Mysticism, space and time collapsing as it relates to everyday life, the meaning and energy changes from walking a labyrinth, new ways of looking at health issues, spirit world, ancient teachings and the personal experience of Sound and Energy Healing. Profound transformations were witnessed and acknowledged in the finality of the Vision Quest. (If you are interested in hosting a retreat weekend please email for more information.)

The week prior, I had spent helping a friend make with hands and feet, a quantity of sacred wool felts. And as I had learned from my previous experience of doing and sharing the work, one can go through a huge gamut of feelings and expressions on all levels while working the wool. Automated processes and industrialization has taken this “gift” out of so much of today’s product productions. Besides creating beautiful textiles, objects, clothing and living commodities, the people of ancient and indigenous cultures knew that personal involvement in the process was as important to the village or family’s health and wealth as the products created. Our per se “modern industrialized and material societies” do not afford that and this is OUR COLLECTIVE LOSS!

As I don’t have and have not had a television for quite a few years, during occasional stays in a hotel or every now and then I look through The Huffington Post online to see if the world is still there and what it is doing!

From this detached place it all pretty much strikes me as the same continuing Soap Opera, just a change of actors and scene settings. The political scene, upcoming election drive, corruption, scandals, financial games large and small, government hiding, war mongering and terrorism threats, continual lack of everything to make life acceptable, violent scenarios and movies foretelling our end have not changed in years and years and years. Do you believe all you see and hear? Can you read between the lines of what is not said and by whom! If you were to go back into the archives of papers and television five year, ten years, twenty even further back, you may be shockingly surprised to see and hear the exact same things happening.

Why! Because so often our own common sense is usurped by our “belief” that those looked up to, in power, more knowledgeable than ourselves and so on would never hurt or deceive the people!

If you claim back yourself as a unique, independent thinking, heart centered spiritual/physical individual your world can change and thus the bigger world for all of us!

Until we meet again………..
