To understand the significance of what is happening in Charlottesville today, a look back in time to the mid 1700s will reveal a large piece of a little known or reported part of history.

I lived in Charlottesville from April 2004 to early 2006. Unbeknownst to me at the time, what I learned during that time was and has been profound to my growth and greater knowledge of our world and universe. All details are far too much to share now yet I will give a thumbnail sketch of what is being revealed today.

Points within the story unfolding:

Charlottesville and the environs was the birthplace of Presidents Jefferson, Madison and Munroe, and of which all three were instrumental in the writing and/or implementation of the original tenets of the Constitution of this country.

Thomas Jefferson is also known as the founder of education in this country, establishing the University of Virginia in Charlottesville as a place of learning to empower people to think for themselves and live their highest potential. And yes there was a down side to the area, as it was a time of slavery in the south, and all three were included. Sadly, far too few were caretakers of those lives, rather abusers of lives.

Jefferson’s home, Monticello sits atop Carter Mountain. This land mass is also known as a crystal mountain. The acres around it are quite magical and I came to realize walks here became places of downloads. On the front lawn of the home there are the makings of a long forgotten labyrinth which Jefferson had installed.

For those into sacred geometry, mapping out Charlottesville, one will find many patterns and connections between Monticello, The Rotunda, Capital, Nob Hill and other points around the area.  And as with most universities, then and now, there were member societies of secrecy and darkness as well as goodness and light.

 The Little Known!

The birthdate of Thomas Jefferson, the one every child has been taught since the 1800s is incorrect and its reason is significant to everyone, even today.

He was not born on April 13, 1743. He was born on April 2, 1743. You will have to dig very deep to find even a mention of the latter date though. (It took me quite a while to find this!)

What difference does it make and who cares!

Perhaps I am the only one who cared yet when I found the reason much started coming clear.  Since Year 2000 the quest and raising of consciousness across the planet has been increasing as it should.

To understand this little piece, we go back to the radio. Remember the crystal radio! When a station is tuned correctly, the program aired is clear and understandable to the listener. When the station is not quite tuned in the signal goes in and out, there is static and it takes a lot of concentration to hear and comprehend everything that is aired.

Today with so many people understanding energy, frequency and vibration, especially in the fields of healing what I am about to share should be an AH HA moment!

Back in early mid 1700s, the then Christian Church denominations, both here and in UK, said they needed to revise to ecclesiastical calendar established during the Nicene Council of 335AD. Specifically the holidays and celebrations based on moon cycles were not falling into a predictable cycle and this was frustrating to them. (I know it sounds weird!)

Thus, a change had to be decided on and worked out! Who was involved specifically in the computations I found no mention. The result though was astounding!

It was September 1752. It was decided, September 2 would indeed be the 2nd. However, September 3 was changed to September 13th, an ADDITION of 11 DAYS!

Thus completely eliminating all days, energies, identities, events that would have existed in those eleven days.

 So what! Cut a pizza into twelve pieces, take one away and then put it back together selling it a a whole pizza! The piece that is missing throws off the shape, the fit, the value, the integrity of the original product!

Taking those 11 days out of the calendar does all that and more. It changed the radio station and created an incoherent field that people had to adjust to over time. It is what happen with the Gregorian Calendar when the 13th moon rising in a year was eliminated, creating the 12 moon calendar. A calendar that is out of sync with natural universal cycles.   This created another incoherent field for the people to adjust to! I say this changed the body DNA, cell and nervous systems thus also throwing out of line our third eye and intuitive fields from their true vibration.

These changes even though they were done hundreds of years ago have a vibrational effect through time, incarnations, generations and souls. We are manipulated beings for others purposes!

Charlottesville Today!

All the quotes, teachings and purpose from the framers of the Constitution for people to live by to be self empowered and establish a strong sense of governance and fairness toward others as a whole has hit a wall of the opposite, ever though that wall is made up of those who want the same, per se, yet in different ways. And it is fueled by irresponsible dialogue, anger and hatred.

As a weaver of threads and visions for understanding, I wonder:

Have Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and James Munroe returned in spirit to hold, reveal and ask all people living in this country what is the truth behind the original Constitution?

Is it up for grabs and manipulation as some feel inclined? Is there a way for all sides to calm and find common talking ground where each can live as they choose without ruining others lives who do not follow suit?

In the lead up to this powerful eclipse from the lion’s gate roar, how will each of us respond and hold the highest ideals of divine courage and life to the light?

Are you struggling with self identity and being your whole self within relationships, family, work and life?

Do you believe someone else will make you whole? Are you the mirror of society’s expectations?

How do we touch other people’s lives? The importance of integrating the male and female sides of ourselves.

This interview is part 2 on The Ultimate Purpose of Honing the Muscle of Feminine Self Worth. Although it is focused on major transitions in life it is not just about women. It also includes men being able to claim and hone their muscle of feminine self worth within. Men and women have both masculine and feminine aspects within their being and makeup and learning to live with them each in harmony is essential.

As the Phoenix rises from the ashes of fire the New Conscious Human rises through Alchemy to Transform Life

Shedding the False Self to find truth within the illusion of today’s world can be tough.  Personal life, business, career, relationships, finances, environment, creativity, spiritual seeking, religion, compassion, dominance, empathy and hate are all influenced by the lack of transparency and illusion we and others create for protection.

Yet there is one search for truth that may be the bedrock of our sanity, individually and as a humanity. It is the aeons old ‘Search for the True Self’. For I believe it is only through the finding and understanding of our own true self that the decisions made in life (both important and small) will be far more beneficial to the greater good on all.

Who Am I? Part 1 Now this may seem presumptuous to some, yet sit back for a moment and check in with your life thus far. Ponder the moments when life seemed to be true and real and then ponder those times when all was falling apart…….where was truth of self and actions and where was deception playing out!

Knowing the False Self! Part 2

We all know people who believe they are defined by their $$$ and how many material possessions are owned. Often there is envy felt at why they have so much and we or others don’t. There are also those who believe bullying, violence and taking from others makes them powerful. And then there is the vast majority of people living each day hoping, struggling, pushing and working to ‘just get by’.

Astrology and Teachers Part 3In all where is contentment, joy, happiness, peace of mind and love of self and others? If all outer world trappings disappeared Who would you be? This is the question and search as old as people have lived.

My life has always been the search. My work has always been part of the search, even when I wasn’t consciously searching.

If you are searching for some answers and directions, here are three short audio pieces on questions, ideas, tools and perspectives to start with.

This is the beginning of a series to assist along the way. My background, education and experiences over so many years have honed me to live and hopefully assist others during these interesting and challenging times…….To learn more about Ophelia, her work and art visit

Women’s March, 1913 in Washington, D.C.s21_0159053v

Looking Back to see How Far We Have Come – This is what’s happening now through the amazing power of the Internet, the positive side of the Net.

Articles, snippets, secrets, stories, videos and more from multiples of year’s past are revealing exactly where WE, as a country, as a world community, as a breathing life form have arrive in TIME and SPACE.

We are looking into the past to find the clues of what has actually happened previously and what is happening and repeating now.  The Net allows us to watch how people’s behaviors have or have not changed, how the quotient of truth swings between subjective and objective, and to then completely disappear.

It is natural to forget the past; our personal past as well has the world around us as we navigate everyday life challenges. Yet, the Net has brought it, the past, back into the present for all of us to see, know and decide what choices to make now. Informed choices can only be seen and understood with an appropriate context.

This Friday’s inauguration followed by a women’s march on Washington has been done before! In 1913 it was Woodrow Wilson’s inauguration.

In March 1913, 5000 women from all walks of life marched on Washington to demand the right to vote and the decency to be treated as a person and not as a possession. The quote below is from an article in the link:   http://www.openculture.com/2017/01/the-womens-suffrage-march-of-1913-that-overshadowed-another-presidential-inauguration.html

Referring to the 1913 march:   And these are also the reason for this weekend’s march!

“In addition to responding to the public displays of contempt for women we’ve witnessed over and over in the past year, the events intend to reaffirm the rights of all people. The organizers succinctly state that “women’s rights are human rights. We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us.” 

(A side note for those who are familiar with the Law of Time, 13 Moon Mayan Calendar – in the sequence of 52 year cycles – 2017 and 1913 are in the same sequence ………coincidence or synchronicity!)

The election of Donald Trump has already had a huge effect on so many people and situations. Good or bad – there are very murky waters indeed!

However, on many unexpected levels it has helped articulate for so many people, “what they don’t want; what they will not accept; what they are formulating from within to be better choices as individuals, families, communities, businesses, corporations and governments. They, people, are becoming grounded and vocal in more positive ways to get to the truth of situations.

And this is not just in this country. Over the coming weekend there are hundreds of gatherings, marches and protests in solidarity across the world. The big tent circus here has activated and identified the same attitudes for everyday men and women from every walk of life on nearly all continents. It is a great opportunity for opposites to agree to respect differences for what is at stake is far greater.

It is not the group that has the power to change. It is each powerful individual standing for what is right as respectful and empathic human beings desiring to live in harmony, peace and balance in the greater world energy.

“Holding the Yellow Crystal Seed within the Heart of Duality for the Promise of Transformation”

Are the powers of unseen consciousness for the uplifting of humanity pushing us to look more closely, to question, to remember a past far too close to repeating itself, to push our personal views and choices on value, integrity, truth, fairness, justice, greed, power, honor and service to all!

 

It would appear that most information coming out these days is of the “in your face” sort. We (the collective population) go about our days as norm, and then a report or postings from the many internet news and social media sites reveals more on Trump, his behavior, his past, his businesses, his love of glitz, his mouth and the governmental mine field he is creating.

Personally, I do not like crass, rude, arrogant, condescending people. I see no redeeming value to such behavior as it most always results in major negative outcomes for a lot of people.

I struggle to understand how a man who lives in a gold-plated home surrounded by “advisers” who in most cases are wealthy than he is, can sweet talk so many ordinary working people into believing he cares about them and will work for their best interest! His behavior shows the exact opposite.

It also seems Republicans in his party are terrified of him. No one will challenge, question or call on his behavior and manipulations. Or they are waiting and watching to see the sink or swim scenario to play out! After watching this latest game show, how can one believe anything anyone of them say! (no matter the party!)

To be respected as a person or country is important to the evolution of societies across the world. To respect differences in any form does not mean one agrees with opinions or standards of others. Respect allows for understanding to be fostered through those very differences, which can lead to optimum solutions when patience and discernment are utilized.

Respect begins with the respect of self first, sometimes a difficult task unto itself.  Yet so worth the journey to gain it. For Trump to be accepted in the manner he believes he is due……he must earn respect as an ordinary person in an extraordinary position. Otherwise the cartoon characters will keep coming and international respect for this country and Americans will be a thing of the past.

As light carriers across the world hold fast to ground the promise of new codes and templets for a balanced and fair world, it is the very light shining on and in the dark and muddied spaces that reveals what needs to be changed, addressed, transmuted, cleansed and called out……….To Wake US Up!

These links are to other parts of the story lines……..some pieces of information I knew yet other pieces I didn’t……information opens for better choices and understandings.

Defining Cooperative Leadership

Ophelia infographic d3

In a world filled with upheaval and less than effective leadership, no matter the country, government, corporation, etc., it is necessary to look for and participate in new or at least progressive, inclusive and grounded processes that lead to win-win outcomes for all involved, no matter how small or large the endevour.

It is so necessary for current leadership, (government, business, community, group, private and public) to re-evaluate how they think, act, determine outcomes, fund projects and formulate the ultimate manifested outcomes of the visions or goals desired.

No one person is an ultimate authority on the perfect how to accomplish such a monumental task. Yet, there are many out in the great world, myself included, who have proven ways, workable ideas and a huge willingness to open new doors to be part of the collective solution.

Some of the keys;

Responsibility and the ability to respond. No blame and no victims. Choices in actions determine outcomes every time!

Today I offer a series of presentations recently done on the process called “Defining Cooperative Leadership”.  This process was revealed, discovered and proven in real time, real life and work circumstances over a period of four years and then years of refining through life experiences. All of this was discovered within the  federally-funded, not-for-profit, social services world – not a place I expected to find these answers!

Much of the information found within these presentations is already used, just not in a conscious and empowering way. Some of the ideas and perspectives shared would not be generally associated with leadership presentations or even skills, yet I have found them to be valid and important in defining the unfolding process.

For those who take time to watch and listen to each one, I hope you gain understanding and share with me your ideas and thoughts.

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.
