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

I have searched yet cannot see even a glimpse of the innocent one who came into this world

Oh once again to be a vulnerable vessel so filled with space no degree of love and blessings can be turned away

Spaces so filled with high light and life that joy abounds as overflowing as waters and streams burst forth from their banks with life force blessed….

Flowing beyond confined banks of pre measured sources showing only lack.

You are the full bounty of God’s Divine Breathe

You are the full bounty of loves ecstatic rising from the source of true beginning

You are beauty soft and gentle, Soul touches with breathe and whispers…

Transcend the pain to radiance pure

The touch you long for, it is there!

It is you waiting in the shadows

You have been waiting in the shadows..

Remember the shine and smile of the first meetings when light and light joined force as One

You are the One of pure force and so are all Ones you encountered

Light force pure and blessed within,

Fear not rejection unseen as such only proves a miss of truth,

Words not spoken for fear to know or believe in the loss or change

Cry no more your tears are naught to serve no one, lest only to fall and water Rose and Earth

As you see the lover’s face and smile, smile to be at peace

The times of past are no more as lovers lost and death to end

No more! No more! As light sparkles forth from within You sing the gypsy songs and minstrel bards

            Breath of Life, Breath of Life

            Expand and Sore!

Sat Nam and Blessings of Infinite New Vibrations on every inch of Earth, within every Human Soul present, past and future.

It appears the long wait is over. It is hard to believe my last real posting was two months ago…..it has been a time of much shifting, change, challenge, greatness love and loss. And I am not alone. Virtually everyone I know or come in contact with is going through this “void” yet in the long run (as blurred as all may appear) it is and will be a good thing.

Last week a dear friend loaned me a book and strongly suggested I take heed of the first chapter. This book was originally printed in 1961 and the copy I had was the seventh printing – 2002 “The Law and the Promise” by Neville. I have read the first chapter twice and completed the whole book once. I obviously needed a good reminder in creating new life paths!

If you experienced childhood and growing up like most of us, using and believing in our imagination was totally frowned upon, discouraged or downright outlawed. A child’s “make-believe” world was just that and could not possibly become anything productive, secure – financially or socially, acceptable or logical. The creative, make-believe world was one for the non-educated, losers, trouble-makers and eccentrics. And thus most of the education systems in the world “taught it (imagination) out of the child’s mind.”  

The entire message within Neville’s book is about how to use, cultivate and hone our Imagination to create the world we want or desire around us. One challenge I had in reading it was the language Neville used, the language “appropriate” for the 1960s. His constant use of the word “Man” when referring to both men, women (seldom even mentioned) and humanity. Even though I completely understood what he meant a wave of discomfort came over me and the little inner voice started saying, sometimes angrily “what about women!” “what about the world! “do only men count!” This showed me how deep some social conditioning can still reach.

Yet, of course back in the 60’s, which was not so long ago, this was the reality in most parts of the world, even the civilized world. Women have been “allowed to vote” in many parts of the world since the late 1800s yet the image of “a woman’s place is in the home, only to serve husband and raising of children” was strongly portrayed in many television programs of the 50s, 60s and even into the 70s.

With the cultural and social movements throughout the 80s and 90s and into this new millennium the imaging of women in the world of business, creative arts, science, medicine, law and child-rearing has changed yet not everywhere…..thus there is more “imagining to do here!”

Neville states the key and secret to changing your reality is Self-abandonment! “You must abandon yourself mentally to your WISH FULFILLED in your love of that state, and in doing so, LIVE IN THE NEW STATE and no more in the old state. You can’t commit yourself to what you do not love, so the secret of self-commission is FAITH – plus LOVE.” In FEELING the wish fulfilled it must become a reality because imaging creates reality.

Another key that Neville mentioned of importance was to “re-imagine the past or past outcomes to recurring situations with an outcome that is of a higher, better or the best desired, to also feel and live with that scenario until it is totally real within as this will be the foundation for the new future outcome of the recurring situation. In other words “re-imagining the past can/will change the future.”

A possible example of this could be having a bad or challenging parent relationship which appears to have some genetic or heritage patterns. You re-imagine the best or most desired, even fairytale relationship, feel and live what it was/could have been, feel love for yourself and others. This may take some time, patience, forgiveness and work. Now when the similar relationship is in your life (say father/son or mother/daughter) be observant of subtle or not so subtle changes in interactions or emotions. Perhaps the old buttons are not being pushed quite so much or at all or you are not attracting people who create the similar stresses. It is at least worth a try!

This has taken me back into review of my life and most specifically all I have created and done in the past 13 years (since 2000) and how I would like to reinvent, enhance and recreate myself in the wonderful new paradigm we are in now. In reviewing I found that indeed ” my creative imagination, feeling and living in it” before any manifestation happened was and still is the flow. Most especially when I followed my heart and intuition. This also played/plays out when imagining from fear, loss and lack that were separate from my great learning journey of how the unseen world of dimensions manifest.

There are many examples of people with amazing imaginations revealed through all forms of The Arts as well as every other fields of business, health, science, technology and so forth. Our world is being taken to new galactic heights. There are and have always been the pioneers who open doors of possibilities yet to make real the Imagined it takes many, many, many more to use their gifts of imagining to participate in the creatitive manifestation for the new Reality.

Now it is time for a new imagining to be in synchronicity with the new paradigm of unity, collaboration and cooperation in melding and honoring the male and female, feminine and masculine and the balancing of opposites within and around each one of us.

The creative visions of imagination are for everyone to access, to live from and be in love with. Imagining the highest Reality desired for it to be Created.

It is Nice to be Recognized  – Do you know how you touch other people’s lives? Most of the time we have no idea. Yet when we are gifted with a view into how most often we are surprised.

It is always nice to be recognized for who we are, what we do and how we touch others. I would like to share some of my friends with you. For more information on me, my consultations, creations and products and past work visit www.earthspiritjourneys.com

On Friday night I danced Flamenco (my style) accompanied by Michael Olsen, a wonderful flamenco guitarist.  I was fulfilling a vision to publicly dance again and now am looking forward to do it again if the opportunity arises.

Women’s Mystic Journeys to Becoming.

Here is video Part 3 in a new series of stories being produced by Andree Morgana of The Hawahwatha Institute.

The full interview can been seen in Parts at Earth Spirit Journeys You Tube Channel.    Part 1

The Journey of Becoming is not just about women and cannot happen with only women interacting. Men are doing the journey and are integral to the balance of showing the progress of evolving consciousness. We need each other to help along the way and most especially to show us how far we have come or not in our own journey. We are the measuring sticks for each other, such an important role to play.

I am back up at Mt Shasta, CA – resting, recuperating, reviewing, renewing and recreating as the first winds, rains and snow of winter present themselves.

This is a place I have cherished for the past three years. During the many times I return here after travels to many other places I find myself immersed into certain growth and creative junctures.

In the past two months the desire to paint has been present and now I have the beginning of a series of what could be called Galactic Signature Art, based on the 13 Moon Mayan Calendar. This calendar represents Mayan Astrology and like traditional astrology’s, a person’s birth day is significant to creating and understanding one’s identity and personality signature of how we relate to the world around us.

In less than a month on December 21st the much touted and long awaited “end of time” is upon us. Something new awaits us, our world and universe yet we have no idea what it is or how it will play out or even if it does have any effect. This is based on the 5200 year prophesy of the ancient Mayans and has been especially anticipated for the past 25 years.

One painting called “Galactic Solstice Shift” is representative of Bridging the Worlds on three recognized dates:

December 21 – Blue Resonate Hand – signifying Accomplishment and Knowledge – the last day of the 5200 year cycle.

December 22 – Yellow Cosmic Star – signifying the New Beauty, Art and Light of The New Earth that is possible in Transcending from old to new.

July 26, 2013 – Yellow Galactic Seed – first day of an entirely new calendar which has not yet been revealed…it is still in SEED form and germinating out of view.  Galactic or from the High Universe, what will be birthed on and for the Earth will hold new, different and unfamiliar harmonics, vibrations and frequencies thus offering all of humanity a massive rainbow of possibilities and opportunities to choose from and creative with.

The inspiration for the first paintings came from the birth of my grandchildren and the inspiration of others seeing their paintings.

As each background is done with metallic paint photographing them does not show many of the special subtleties on each canvas. Along with the Natal Seals I tune into the uniqueness of each person and what is asking to be included in the piece. Each is a “one of a kind” painting.

I am accepting commissions for the unique individual paintings which can make very special holiday gifts for family and friends. Name and Birth date information is required. Each commission is for a donation of $100.

Well Dear Readers it has been an eternity since The Muse put in a good days work….not really, it just seems that way!

As so many of you are finding these days your lives just turn and move from “normal” to “oh no, not again changes”, “I didn’t ask for these happenings”, and then the totally unexpected and then back to seeming “normal”. You question your sanity and that of others around you. And then when horoscopes and planetary astrology is checked, it all reveals that exactly what has been going on in your life and others…..”is normal” for the times we are living in………SUCH COMFORTING THOUGHTS!

The Muse has still not fully returned and that is OK I have decided. The only certainty is the uncertainty! You have all no doubt heard, read and unexperienced many of the dynamics of this pivotal 2012 year. There are hundreds on writers and channels delivering messages of varying importance and truth mixed with fiction and superstition. This all leads to a great need for discernment on the part of each person seeking as everyone is at a completely different stage of understanding and evolution on the path.

The last time humanity (if it existed then)  came close to these experiences was back 26,000 years when the last Cycle of Light (feminine) ended and it moved into the 26,000 year Cycle of Darkness (masculine) that is now ending. The only evidence of what it was like are the results we live with now and reflect on as “our human history.” Such are our sobering reflections!  Please know that references here and all other places you read it are not directed to MEN (our current general understanding of masculine) but to the Masculine aspects of humanity in both men and women……this is where a huge part of our responsibility lies. Understanding ourselves.

In these times the unexpected and new is premium for us as part of collective humanity to open up the portals and doorways of New Paradigm Times. So best advice…don’t fight the unusual, unknown and really uncomfortable because there can be great potential lying in wait!

Since “The Muse Left the Building” posting I have traveled many miles for the movement to open doors not known to be present. Visits with special friends and work with many new people in presentations and teaching experiences have gifted me greatly. Again getting back to the very early morning (4AM) sadhana meditations. From Sonora to Mill Valley to Sonora to Geyserville to Mendocino to  Sebastopol to Stockton to Sonora to Mendocino. Soon to return to Geyserville and then to Mt Shasta for the Full Solar Eclipse and then ?????? Let the unknown unfold!

Out of all these places special little happenings would open…to even being asked to Read/Try Out for the Lead in an amazing Theater Play. And then be asked to continue to the next Reading……this is the total unexpected yet oddly enough connected to my knowings that lie deep below surface of the present. Whether I get the part of not… I’m loving the experience and challenge.

By saying Yes to such….the Universe can respond by gifting more openings……….Try It…..You May Like It!!!!!!!!!!!

The Muse has now written far more than expected. Enjoy the photos of varied landscapes from the past weeks.

Blessings and wonderful journeys to All!

After the whirlwind journey of last week to the quiet recovery I am in now, my mind is starting to clear once again at least enough to write. The last two days have been a blur and after talking with several other friends and reading much it would be safe to say I am not alone in this.

What with the massive influx of energy throughout the Universe from Solar Flares and their Emissions to the powerful Astrological lineups (both western /sun and eastern/moon based) readying for the Spring Equinox (Northern Hemisphere) and the Autumn Equinox (Southern Hemisphere) – all this melding and weaving through the “unprecedented awakening of Mass Consciousness and collapse and exposure of archaic and corrupt structures of World Banking, ($$, Stocks, Precious Metals),  Fossil Energy (Oil Companies), Health and Pharmaceuticals,  (FDA, AMA, Insurance, Etc.)  Food Gene Manipulation (Monsanto, Etc), Weather and Earth Changes (HAARP, Nexrad, earthquakes, etc) Education and Media – so many people everywhere are finding their worlds and lives turned upside down, inside out with no emotional or psychological preparation or fall-back plans. The experts are just as lost as anyone else!

At this amazing time in our evolution – the ending of “one 26,000 year Sun/Earth (patriarchal influence) cycle to the beginning of another 26,000 year cycle (matriarchal influence) ” WE, as the Current People of Earth, have agreed to play the massive variety of “ROLES and CHARACTERS in the PLAY OF A LIFETIME to CREATE the NEW EARTH.”  There is no prepared script….it is being written with each thought, desire, fear, action, step, interaction, hesitation, moment of time and space…..based on what has been before……to evolve into what will be…….by no means an easy path filled with highs and lows in all magnitudes…….all ultimately pushing TRUTH of Heart and Soul of Our Humanity to the surface and into the vast openness of Life’s Light.

Out of the Blue…..Goddess of Nature and Mystery School Merge

An invitation came via email to do a presentation of my labyrinth at the Temple of Isis in Geyserville, CA (about 1 1/2 north of San Francisco). Rolling vineyard covered hills and high volcanic ranges are the signatures of the Sonoma County region.

I had heard of “The Temple” and greatly looked forward to learning more.  As  the name implies, Geyserville is or perhaps more correctly was the gateway to California’s great boiling wonders like “Old Faithfull” from the late 1860s to when the utility conglomerates (like PG&E) took over, constructed a massive hyrdoelectric system and closed “all Mother Nature’s Magic” to the public.  Now Geyserville is still a very small town of a couple of market, antique stores, restaurants and wine-tasting rooms.

Located on Geyserville Road, just before the new fire station and hidden behind a facade of lush growth is the Temple of Isis and visionary founder and protector, Rt. Reverend LOREON VIGNÉ, Arch Priestess of Isis.  For those unfamiliar with the ancient stories which abound of Egyptian Goddess Isis and her consort Osiris – Isis is known as the Goddess of Nature. Their story of love reads like the original soap opera (love, jealousy, betrayal, loss, searching, resurrection, boundless love)

For more than thirty years Rev. Loreon has created and watched over this sacred place and I can attest, there is magic, beauty and great metaphoric lessons everywhere – at least from my perspective. Rev. Loreon now eighty years young, petite in height her presence is everywhere – creative, artistic, bohemian, grounded, comfortable and more patient at times with the animal world than the human community. I think this has more to do with our (humans) loss of the real connection to telepathic language which is the essence of the other species. Human communication, language and meanings cause great misunderstanding, confusion and sometimes manipulation in varying degrees…..Living and learning in community is important to our growth.

I learned that this location, prior to her arrival was a community of the Baha’i faith for more than seventy years. All the building date back to then. The focal point on the grounds is a magnificent 500 year old oak tree, designated as protected by the Heritage Society. Standing or sitting under the great arbor is a powerful yet quiet experience.

Not only does the natural setting grab attention. It is also home and sanctuary to a vast array of exotic and endangered birds and ocelots. View the lovely video on the Temple of Isis website.

It is here I also play “devil advocate” in regards to the Sanctuary for those readers in opposition to such conditions for the animal and bird worlds. If We as Humanity did create, live and honor a “perfect balanced world” there would be no need for protection of any species. But of course that is not the case.

For all these years Rev. Loreon slowly became the Protectoress, probably never expecting the scope and time commitment involved. So many of the birds have been either gifted or sent for caring by people and organization without the knowledge or facilities to do the same. Today even though the sanctuary facility is now in need of improvement and renovation (which is a Vision and Priority for the near future and Donations of funds, building materials and in-kind services would be greatly accepted) the daily care, feeding and interaction with all wildlife is heartfelt, gentle and professional. The Sanctuary  is also a wonderful education experience for children and adults alike. Rev. Loreon has two books available “The Goddess Bade Me Do It” and “Lots and Lots of Ocelots”. Most of the art, pottery and building decorations have also done by Loreon over the years.

An extensive group of volunteers and residents of the property take their care roles very seriously, for some “it is the opportunity of a lifetime!” The large “family” of Ocelots are Rev. Loreon’s passion. To the ancient Egyptians and most especially the Goddess Isis, the Cat held great reverence and for more than forty years Loreon has been known as Cat Priestess and Authority of Ocelots. Most of the cats presently on the property were born here, as were their parents and possibly parents before that.

Several comments made during the tour really caught my attention and understanding in regards to the cats…...”here the cats have mates and are able to breed safely. They learn what love is! In the wild there is always the need and stress for protection from predators especially with birthing/teaching of cubs, searching for food, territory and mating battles not to mention poachers, hunters and loss of natural areas. When a litter is born here there is extra attention given so all will thrive.

Sharing the Labyrinth…

The overcast skies and drizzle did hold off just long enough to have the labyrinth under the oak tree for a while. After introductions and telling the labyrinth story thus far two young brothers “walked it” and all watching marveled at the expansion of their auric/energy fields from before to afterwards. Later more people walked it and had their very special experiences in the dry and warm Isis Theater.  There is always so much more to the experience that “just the walk”……messages, medicine songs and healings are transmitted to a point that the air has an electric, other world sparkle. This is what I love!

Over the next few days of my stay at Isis, so many wonderful meetings and synchronicity abounded. Talking to and learning about many of those who lived and volunteered there, the talents and expertize spanned the gamut of education, dance, cuisine, science, videography,  peacemaking, accounting, art, carpentry, gardening  and more.

Harnessing Mother Nature….

During one of the readings I did reference to the power of the geysers came up and I felt the need to learn more and take a visit up the mountains. The next day under drearier skies I drove that way. Even with directions I still missed the “right road” and ended on a narrow one-land road full of twists and turns heading to the top. Loreon had lent me a small booklet written in 1875 by W.L – the author’s only identity. He stated the journey of 26miles from the geysers to Calistoga included 15 miles and 275 curves, 4 1/12 miles = 143 curves – one can only imagine the hair-raising experience in a coach drawn by four horses! I took to Pine Flat Road all the way to the gates blocking entry into the geyser valley. Sadly, us travelers will never get to experience such amazing beauty and power in pristine natural settings! So is the price of modern progress!

Apparently the power from this Hydroelectric Plant, powered from the volcanic geyser steam provides 60% of the electricity from the Oregon border to south of San Francisco Bay area.

My Dear Readers,

Thank you so much for your continued support in visiting and reading my ramblings, stories and hopefully wisdom learned! 2011 has been a good year in preparing us for this arrival….good, bad and indifferent!

This time of year is not joyful for so many as it is also a time to remember those loved who either passed from this life during the year or in year’s earlier. How shallow the saying “those you loved are still with you” when all seen everyday is empty space near you. During these times of really transiting into what can be called “higher dimensions” we, each of us, are learning that what seemed impossible is indeed possible.

During times of reflection, perhaps really start talking and calling on those in Spirit, and perhaps most especially those you had real problems with. Ask them or write to them about why their anger, pain, abuse, whatever the situation you “experienced” ……..use a photo if it is easier to focus…….allow your true feelings and expressions to surface……the ones that are usually ignored or not discussed in therapy!

But you ask....isn’t that why one goes to therapy! Supposedly, yet from my experience with clients who have been in therapy for extended periods of time, a spoken or unspoken agreement has been struck between client and therapist to not discuss or push beyond certain points of topics, thus never going to the core for healing and most especially recognition and acknowledgment.

To move fully into the wonder of this Year 2012 it is necessary to not accept the past actions of status quo. In numerology 2012 = 5 =  change, flow, freedom, flexibility or rigidity, hitting the brick wall!

Nothing can change or be free and flowing if it is still bound, trapped, locked, buried, denied or rejected. This is true of those in Spirit World as well as the happenings in your physical world.

No New Year’s Resolution will have any power or depth if the way forward is still blocked.

Therefore, invite and ask those residing in the higher realms to freely and gently and truthfully Look through your Eyes, Feel through your Heart, Enlighten through your Soul and Forgive through the Physical to truly be able to embrace the potential of Year 2012 also The Chinese Year of the Dragon beginning January 22 and the long awaited promise of a New Earth manifesting.

In Eastern Astrology to Dragon is powerful, creative, passionate, engaging –  not the corrupted view set forth by Western religion of evil incarnate!

Reviewing the Past

Recently I have been reviewing all of the past postings with the intent to create a book/eBook. I have been amazed as so much I have forgotten.

The very first posting in March 2010 was about TRUTH – I believe it is quite appropriate to share once again.

What is Truth?

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

Indescribable       Indefinable     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.

One Person at a time  DOES change the world!

I wish you safety, joy, friendship, harmony and peace  for today and everyday!

Ophelia
