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

 It has been a busy week since our last meeting and these last few days I have been on the road visiting.

Last Sunday the “Walking for World Peace Labyrinth” was at the Sebastopol Farmer’s Market and I had the wonderful experience of meeting and sharing it with with some people. In fact 6 children, 5 – 9 years old, asked to walk and learn all about the paths and colors. In innocence they know so much!

Here is Part 2 Audio of Storing the Past….Clearing the Future plus additional perspectives on Abundance, Money and Possession Exercises.

There is a lot to digest so take your time, return to it often, download and listen to the audio and then perhaps apply some of the ideas to your life.

If you do, I would love to hear your experience!

Enjoy the journey this week!

The Alchemy of Abundance

Abundance is all around us every day. It is expressed in millions of different forms and most profoundly in nature. The sayings Like attracts like!  Money makes money! Why are they true? Because the energy of the attraction of LIKE or MAKING MONEY has been set as “already having it” verses “not having it and then wanting it!”

A good everyday example of this energy flow is the pay-day cycle, no matter whether weekly, bi-weekly or monthly, the ratios are the same. Pay-day can be recognized as the “sigh of relief” that resonates through the life energy fields and it plays out like this:

Pay-day plus one or two days are usually days of spending with a more light-hearted attitude of letting go of the funds. These times are often marked by surprise gifts, invites to lunch or dinner, a more receptive attitude to giving and receiving in general.

Yet, as the days move further away from payday the hold on, hold back energetic message grows in strength. To the point those three to four days before the next payday the energetic vice grip is well in place – “there isn’t enough money to make it”! And so there probably will not be enough! Thus providing a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Why is this so? Because the energetic flow of abundance $$s was stopped by the attitude and actions played out as each day progressed, thus fulfilling the FEAR OF LACK! This is where abundance and prosperity are linked. (Be discerning about what is truth and hype!)

While at the same time there is probably a marked increase in the abundance of fear, anxiety, anger, weight gain, substance abuse and violence because those energy channels were wide open to accept the idea of not enough of one ($$) and plenty of the other (negative behavior).

The Universe works in a very simple way, in a cycle of continual flow – in and out, round and round, giving and receiving, birth, growth, completion, death, rebirth. That is the exact cycle of all nature, and this should be our own cycle of understanding abundance and life.

Are we taught to live in this way?   No!

Why not? Simply put, because power, control and greed would have less of a foothold in the daily workings of the planet’s populations if there were more conscious awareness.

Can greed, power and control ever disappear? Yes, if the human race totally changed their ways. Is this likely? No! Perhaps because these attributes are a necessary mirror not only for each individual but also for companies, governments and whole countries, to know what they will accept or reject for themselves and others in everyday life.

What is Prosperity

According the to dictionary, Prosperity is the condition of being prosperous, to be fortunate, successful, thrive.

Prosperous: is to cause success, make fortunate, having, flourishing.

If you notice, it is a state and action rolled into one.

Thus the Alchemy of Abundance is about transmuting the abundance of perceived challenges and lack to the Cause of fortunate, flourishing, prosperous success.

Prosperity Exercises:

If you are serious about changing your life or at least the perspective of life here are some exercises that will, it nothing else, get your attention!


Begin in one room and go through every draw, cupboard, shelf, box, everything – SEE HOW MUCH YOU REALLY ALREADY HAVE!

Now divide a large page into columns titled:

  • Keep / Away / Duplicates / Use / Not Use / $Value / Energy Value / what is Mine or Others
  • What will you keep?      Make note of the $ value, keep the tab going.
  • What will you give or throw away?  Make a note of the $ value, keep adding.
  • How many duplicate items do you have?
  • How much has it ever been used!
  • Will you continue to use it?
  • Why are you holding on to it? Is it your energy or is someone else demanding you keep it?
  • How much energy is it costing you to hold on?
  • How much is it costing you to move?

Add the totals of each list – make sure you are sitting down because you will be shocked to see just HOW ABUNDANT you really have been and are!

+NOW SURRENDER AND LET GO!

The next step is a very important exercise to increasing your personal, family, and business abundance. It is to “LET GO OF” what is finished, what is no longer required, what is broken, out-dated, old, and of no value to your physical, mental and emotional well-being, especially if there is a BIG energetic hold to it, whether monetary or sentimental.

Just like the half-full/half-empty glass of water – there has to be space to receive and accept more.

A very relevant example is the significance of bamboo in Chinese painting and feng-shui. First bamboo is known as a symbol of prosperity and abundance. The reasons are because of its natural growth pattern. Bamboo has long, straight green stalks with obvious growth sections. The fabric makeup of bamboo is very strong yet pliable, hollow inside, and once planted it will continue to grow and multiply to the point that it is incredibly difficult to get rid of.

The external attributes of the bamboo speak for themselves, yet it is the hollowness of the bamboo that I find to hold the most truth and revelation. This is how a young Chinese artist explained the

“The color green is for growth from Mother Nature; the stalk is about straight direction, strength, moving step by step; although strong it is flexible enough to go with the flow of the wind when necessary; it can be molded and shaped into furniture, it multiplies and increases itself; it is hollow to allow a clear channel of life or God energy to come through its center, the Void, and rejuvenate from the inside. If the channel becomes blocked there is obviously no room to accept new and rejuvenating life energy.”

In other words:  if your life both internally and externally is filled to the brim with old and outdated stuff, there is absolutely no room for anything new to even attempt to come into your life.

To really understand this concept of treasures verses junk – help a friend pack up and move their belongings. Because you are detached from the possessions it is easier to see and feel how and where the wasted and blocked energy patterns come from in your friend’s life.

By referring back to the questions earlier as well as answering The Alchemy of Abundance questions you will be able to see rather clearly where and why your own life energy may be blocked.

The Three-Step Process –

  • Acknowledge the “blockage”
  • Throw it out or Let it go!
  • And BREATHE

What is A-bun-dance?

Fun with words – I love the way this looks –

A little, round ball of dough ($$) dancing!

Abundance is a mass, a supply or collection of something or anything – abundance is not just about money and $$$. The magic of abundance is to understand ‘what it is’ in order to have more of ‘what it is not’.

That doesn’t make sense in the everyday world, or at least this is what has been taught.

Being more than money, abundance is a mass of anything; weight, anger, hate, power, junk, fears, doubts, you name it… so it is to pay attention to and ask for the appropriate abundance to manifest.

For instance if you say an abundance prayer, or any prayer for that matter, a safe way to end a prayer or request is to qualify the outcome as “whatever will be in the highest and greatest good of self and all concerned!”

For instance, it may not be in your highest good to win the lottery, for until you learn how to appreciate the value of money and how to manage it in life, the lottery win would add to the life challenge and not be as valuable and as energized as its potential.

Here is a money example: Dollar notes ($$) designating various numerical values are ‘just pieces of paper’. The worth is in the energetic value associated with the numerical value.

Simply put, the more zeros (00) at the end of the number, the more value. And guess what, in numerology, zeros represent the direct interplay with ‘Spirit’, in other words ‘Higher Guidance. Therefore, every dollar has a Spiritual Value connected to it!

The flip-side: The abundance of the not-so-good things in our lives is about what is being held onto, to the detriment of the process of living. It can be possessions, people (both alive and those who have passed through the veils), money, beliefs, power, control, emotions, mental turmoil, and the list goes on. It is the energetic form that determines the mass of abundance, and when that is understood, much can become clear.

Doing the Life Illuminations exercises are a way to become aware of what is IN and what needs to be OUT of YOUR Life to make     A-Bun-Dance! SMILE!

Please feel free to share your thoughts and concerns on today’s topic!

Until next time……
