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!

Today is the launch day for En-Lighten-MEnt – initiated within the Walking for World Peace Labyrinth at 12-12pm on 12-12-2011.

What an amazing unfolding the past six weeks has been! The first tiny glimpse of this project never revealed the final scope.

And I think it is safe to say that this Tool/Game is the first of its kind – in variations and interweaving of information from Spirit and Earth as well as the Physical, Emotional, Mental and Spiritual layers of everyday life.

The Journey of En-Lighten-MEnt

Earth Spirit Journeys Productions

Earth Spirit Journeys came into being about 14 years ago while I was President and Co-Founder of the W.H.O.L.E. Vision Foundation (Women Helping Other Learn Empowerment). It was also the same time of my introduction to Lakota Medicine Teachings and the future path to Medicine Woman.

There is nothing greater than understanding the path between life on Earth and life in Spirit….it is what has driven humanity from the dawn of time until this very moment and will continue into beyond!

Hindsight – looking back to the path walked and understanding more of the why’s, how’s and what’s were involved then and in relation to now.

History – The Past foretelling the Future when actions, deeds and beliefs do not change!

En-Lighten-MEnt – New Paradigm Tools and Games are the collective expression most specifically of the past ten years of my life.  Let me explain further.

The Year 2000 was a turning point for humanity, stepping into another millennium (1,000 years). 2001 marked another turning point. We all know the outward details and all that has played out in the past nine years, a complete cycle in numerology (1-9 sequence). 2011 marked ten years (10=1) a new cycle beginning, taking humanity through the 2012 gateway to fully embody the feminine energy of the Age of Aquarius.

New, unknown, undiscovered as yet….filled with possibilities, risk and adventure.

Back in 2001 my friend and Soul Sister, Toby Evans of Prairie Labyrinths gave me an Akashic Record Reading. In essence it was about this lifetime and most specifically, from 2001 onwards. I was to travel wherever necessary to “gather the tools lost in the winds of time, from ancient lifetimes experienced and to bring them back for my current life’s works. They will be found in places and specifically “in and through”select people I would meet and work with along the way. To bring these tools into wholeness once again!  At the time I did not understand what these tools were or what they would signify.

In the extreme distant past (Atlantis/Leumeria) similar tools and persons carrying them had been destroyed by fear and power because of the truth, goodness and love they represented and produced. Not unlike what is playing out with the populations of Earth these days! The Big Few against the Small Many!

What appeared to be just stories, myths and legends of times and history unwritten or provable are now guiding the opposite effects!

      En-Lighten-MEnt

        $45+ shipping to  12/31/11

        $55 + shipping from 1/1/2012

            (see layout below)

Numerology   (4=balance/foundations; 5=change/freedom; = 9 wholeness/completion) In other words the $45 is about building foundations for change to bring one into Wholeness.)

This first edition of En-Lighten-MEnt – New Paradigm Tools is an expression of many of the important turning points in my life during the past nine years. A coming together for wholeness, for teaching and guiding, to release ownership of the tools for other’s benefit.

Before sharing these markers, I am to remind each on one of you that your life in the past 9 years is also a series of markers, coming to this point on culmination for revelation as to Who, What and How you desire to move through the great gateway between now (December, 2011) into December 2012 and beyond.

For many it will be very difficult to be objective, to see through so much. Yet in doing so there is so much freedom, understanding, forgiveness and celebration.

We are the CREATORS of EVOLUTION making way for R-EVOLUTION

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

En-Lighten-MEnt

Be one of the first people to have the New Paradigm Tools and Games – It is the first of its kind! Each First Edition En-Lighten-MEnt has been “Initiated” within the large traveling Walking for World Peace Labyrinth.

Start with a Beginner’s Mind

Develop Intuition

There are four parts to this game for you and your friends to enjoy.

The Labyrinth in the center of the game layout can be used as a Finger Labyrinth for centering, grounding and meditation. Simply begin by centering yourself, place attention on an issue or topic, state the powerful mantra for Release and Claiming and let your finger do the walking…..the more often one “walks the labyrinth” the more grounded and effective the experience will become. Placing attention on an issue is quite different to intending an outcome. The desire here is to allow the outcome/s or directions to be revealed from a higher source or guidance (specific to each individual) and which will be in the Highest Good of All (all those involved). For many this does not come easily as we have been taught to try and control outcomes and other people in order to get our own way or what we think is best. Learning to trust your intuition is very important for making better choices and decisions in your every day life.

The second part of the game is to use the 108 Cards included as a divination tool for gaining clarity on any particular situation you wish to address. They may be used at any time and in any layout you desire. By using the cards in this manner you can develop and increase intuitive abilities. Developing and refining intuition is similar to developing muscles; with more practice intuition can become clearer and trusted as a guiding life force.

Confidence Builder for Personal Empowerment

The third part of the game is in the form of a board game for up to six people to enjoy. At the beginning of the game each player may wish to write down a question or issue they would like to receive some clarity or guidance. As players move around the labyrinth choosing cards, the messages are read to the group, questions answered or insight maybe be shared by other players. Make notes as the game proceeds. At the end of the game each player can share their original question or issue and what they intuitively believe the cards chosen are telling them.

This game is not about coming in first. It is about developing intuition, personal empowerment, learning how each player receives information differently and learning to trust sharing messages at the right time, in a correct and enjoyable way so that everyone benefits.

Learning Cooperative Leadership when Everyone is In Charge

The forth part of the game is a simple picture puzzle using the 64 numbers/hexagrams of the I CHING. It can be used individually or for up to six players. Players choose a designated number of puzzle pieces. Through cooperation and collaboration each player must gather the correct puzzle pieces that fit their section of the puzzle while addressing the set of specific requests of the other players. Players go from “wanting” to “fulfilling the collective vision” while learning about cooperative leadership.

Immediate purchase  can be done through the DONATION box on the right.

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.

Another posting tomorrow!

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.

The middle of last week I had the strong push to create a new video series on Time Collapsing and the Mayan Calendar. This came out of the discussions on this exact topic during the previous weekend’s retreat.  Losing time is a big issue, no it is a huge issue and one that people do not have any understanding of relative to today.  Taking the journey through time/history allowed for much more clarity and an acceptance, whether understood or not, that is it indeed a reality. Video Part 1 can be seen by clicking on the video image in the list on the right side of this posting.

It was while editing Part 1 that the topics for this posting began showing up. Then in its own time and way pieces of the larger topic began incubating and birthing without my conscious awareness until the flow of information, people, messages and experiences come to me seemingly out of the blue and the topic is revealed. These themes and word kept resurfacing: Time, Space, Fear, Illusion, $$, not enough, spiritual drought, material flooding, virtuous business, spiritual capital, righteousness, thrift and contradictions to name a few. A pretty impressive line-up!

Themes Emerging for this posting:

I received an article by Neale Donald Walsch on Spirit Library June 23 about What we’ve been taught about What God Wants regarding love and money.  The last paragraph touched on the one of the topics – says it all that doing good  or the higher the purpose, the lower the rewards!

The next clue was received a day or so later from Spirit Library directly. It was about their future. After being a wonderful forum for so many very well known Spiritual Teachers and a source of information for so many seekers they realized that there is no money, not to mention profit, in the business of Spiritual Education. Even though, according to marketing sources, this is a huge $$ market.

I know so many individuals who are dedicated and doing powerful spiritual work, changing people’s lives yet in general are in no way compensated appropriately. Some people even get upset if they are expected to pay for this work. Never mind that it is the practitioner’s main work and source of income! The irony of all of this is that when there is a crises in someone’s life more often than not it is the Spiritual teacher, guide, practitioner and medicine person who receives and answers the first calls for help.

Let me clarify, the Spiritual market I am referring to is not connected to ‘any religion’ because the general driving force of religion is power over the people and most usually runs as a non-profit corporate entity where people are encourage to pay for salvation! This may sound pretty cold and hard but when you peel away the emotions, the faith, the actions and promises what is left is the unending requests for money to “save the church” not the people! I learned and saw this quite personally when married to a minister and “served” churches in the deep South and Mid-West.

I believe Mr. Walsch and God felt this was the perfect time to address the inequities of the Spiritual and Corporate worlds!

Next, in one of those accidentally searches I came across  Doing Virtuous Business by Theodore Roosevelt Malloch. It sounded interesting and worth investigating further. After reading the Bio and overview of his book as well as his book titled Thrift – Rebirth of a Forgotten Virtue. Then I read reviews by Steve Forbes, the CEO of Polaroid, a Director of Public Justice and many other high powered executives of big business and government, all espousing how wonderful this idea is and it should be implemented everywhere. I lost interest! More lost words by people who are completely out of touch with 90% of the world. Too many scandals, too many lies, too much greed and too must Virtuous Righteousness in the Name of Spiritual Capital!

Take away everything THEY hold important and what would be left……could they stand on their own two feet without shaking in fear!

And then comes a message about this week’s New Moon and Solar Eclipse with the title Initiation of the Great Renunciation or It is time to Renounce Materialism!  

How is that for Divine Synchronicity!

On the eve of this New Moon and particle Solar Eclipse on Friday, the theme of which is “Initiation of the Great Renunciation”  (Renouncing Materialism). For many readers this will throw you into panic at the possibility of losing everything  you possess and worked for, all the creature comforts, savings and dreams!

The three points mentioned below give an idea of what the Initiation of the Great Renunciation signifies:  

  • The volatility during this Grand Cross cycle instigates the unveiling of new leadership initiatives while continuing to dissolve false societal systems. This includes manipulative corporate structures and their games of monopoly.
  • The light streams of the New Moon Eclipse initiate more tangible preparation of our body to house multidimensional consciousness from the foundation of “physical body” integration.
  • This alignment catalyzes a great wave of assistance from Sirius, considered home to many of Humanity’s greatest teachers. The Sirius system is directly “upstream” from our solar system and within the galactic arm of our Milky Way Galaxy. Sirian light codes envelop our planet to help us advance into the new race genetics.

This means moving beyond the fears and incredible attachment most have to the objects, status, wealth, health and power the “illusion of material safety and security  represents!” To live on earth today there are tangible and monetary needs we all have. The degree, size and purposes of those needs are different for everyone and how the necessary universal flow of needs are given and received each moment are varying and ever changing, as it should be!

What happens when one releases the fears and attachment to material possessions, old corporate and government models and toxic medical practices is the ability to see more clearly the “hold” all these things have on you, the draining effects experienced and the pervasive corruption and deception fed to the masses from times past until this very moment. When the “revolutionary lights go on” the perceived fears and needs disappear almost immediately and thus the need to hold on to the past….this is the beginning of FREEDOM achieved without violence or an insane “defense budget!”

Until next time…..keep clearing and cleaning to Lighten the Load!

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!

(Ice fishing at Castle Lake, CA – June 7, 2011)

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.

(Making of a sacred drum)

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………..
