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

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.

magnificence 2We all have those little or not so little traits that we would rather hide from others and/or avoid completely. That is, of course, until they come up and face you square in the eyes and have to be dealt with!

Procrastination and avoidance are what I have to admit to in this instance! Yet out of it has come some surprising revelations!

At the beginning of this year I decided it was time to change the name on my passport to match the name on my license, from one married name to other.

Before I go any further a side note: The male populations of most countries have no idea how lucky they are with the fact they don’t have to change their identity whenever they marry. Women on the other hand, from the dictates of many years past, are required to change their name to that of the husband, a beginning that was close to indicating ownership of someone or something. Thankfully now in many countries women have the choice to change their name or not.

Prior to 2001 having two names, traveling with all the right documents showing you are one and the same person was validated by the system when entering one or both names. You, your information and history were on the computer screen to be easily seen.

About five years ago the smoothness went to sticky to now it is stuck in mountains of super glued red tape, and even insiders have agreed with image!  This is where procrastination finally caught up with me!

In January with all the correct original documents backing up my life with these two names I had an interview in Phoenix, AZ. They took copies in the interview and fingerprints were done. Then the waiting game began. About 8 to 9 months till completion I was told.

Two weeks ago I receive a letter requesting all documentation to prove my names and reason for the change. Is it possible that the first set of documents I presented to the authorities are still sitting in a file box in Phoenix!

Next the letter stated the two sets of fingerprints taken that day were unacceptable and I now have to provide proof of where I have lived for the past 10 years.

Wow……how on earth am I going to achieve this! This took more than a couple of days to sink in and find the solution.

Of course for a great deal of people this would not be a problem. They have either lived in the same home or town for many, many years. For others a couple of moves are easy to track and paperwork abounds. From here the groups with increasing numbers of moves decrease in number.

In the past 13 years I have been a very fluid and free spirit. (Although that was not the case during my 25 years of marriages.) Life has been and still is a Spiritual Journey of Discovering Who I am, Why I am Here and What I Am to Give Back and be of Service to Life.

my little girl

1998 Nissan Sentra with 300,000 miles My Little Girl!

The search for answers begins with pencil and paper……I can name the locations, towns, city and states. Specific addresses were a challenge. I could picture the house, apartment or land but could not remember the physical addresses.

I had chosen to stop using credit cards in 2003 as part of the journey to learn and understand how money, abundance and prosperity flows or doesn’t in response to one’s need and wants. It was around that time that I realized how corrupt and unreal the money system really was. Thus for these reasons a credit report was of no use because I had no history to track.

Next the bank I had been using for 15 years. Their computer systems don’t keep track of former addresses. Old ones are deleted when updates are changed (or at least this is what I was told.) Then I tried the same thing with the car insurance company and the deal was the same. I thought about tax records but whatever I have are in a box in someone’s attic a long way from here.

STUCK! The obvious places were dead ends. I had some proof of addresses but holes remained!

On the surface my nomadic life was odd, random and uneasy for some people. For others there was the wish to be and do something similar. To find the answers I needed I had to look deeper.

Underneath I am unchanging and predictable: the same bank and insurance company for 15 years; the same cell phone number for 11 years; the same email address for 11 years; driven the same car for 16 years and she has just turned over 300,000 miles!

And there lay the answer! Since driving her off the lot in Sedalia, MO in 1998 with 500 + miles on the odometer, every time tires were purchased or service was done I would slip the finally paperwork into the glove box. I even have the original sales paperwork.

Sitting in the sun I laid out all the paperwork, put it in date and location order and there was the time line and mapping of life for 16 years. Now not only do I have the address proof needed but also confirmation of the same phone number, same vehicle, running tab of the mileage, directions traveled and locations visited and all the care given to Little Girl along the way.

Next week all this will be put to use to validate the requests of the letter mentioned.

What it has further given me is the time to review of the many places I have been, the wonderful people I have met, experiences share and lessons learned.

Where have you lived in the past 10 years? Is there a time line and map to show in black and white! Who have you met, what have you done, how have you grown…….where are you going from here?

Re-Evolution of Success                                           1 3 3 3 5 1 1

A whole Revolution is the completion of what we think of as a circular cycle where the beginning meets the end to become the beginning again. Thus the discovery of the Wheel!

A Revolution is also an uprising of people against something or policies they now believe are unacceptable and/or out of date with the newer view or desires of life. Sadly, the beginning of far too many wars and death and pain of those desiring to change life.

Evolution is taking the perhaps not so circular path to become something else, most hopefully better yet not always. The Evolution of Species.

This morning just after the waking moment “Revolution of Success” came to me along with it the claim “Re-Evolution of Success”.  I also noticed the use of the word “OF” and not “FOR”.

“Of Success” is implying it is already here/there/present, has been in the past and it is to regain the “state of success.” Using “For Success” says that it (success) perhaps keeps staying in the theoretical state of Success and never quite feeling it has been achieved.

This, in the message, was followed by the numerological breakdown of the word Success  –  1 333511 (each letter has a specific value and quality) Nothing new, go back to Pythagoras, the Egyptians, the Mayans, virtually all ancient wisdom cultures knew and used numerology.

Of course this only applies to the English word for Success yet it says a huge amount if accepted as a pure meaning by anyone.

S  =  1 = Self/Individual

U+C+C  =  3 = Communication/Expression/Creativity NOW that by 3 = that is POWERFUL!

E  = 5 = Change/Freedom/Movement/Center

S+S  =  11 = A more powerful Self plus 11 also represents the bringing together of the physical and spiritual worlds as one connected unit like a doorway. Think of a beam of light from heaven to deep in the earth running straight through YOU!

NOW it we look at Success through these eyes:

As I/YOU/WE Communicate and Express who we are/desires/loves/ fears/etc. from heart and truth and Create with Vitality being free to Change and Move off Center to refind and refine ONESELF and our Re-Creation then in the moment heaven and earth join and light US up thus revealing Success no matter what it look like…..a small step, an energizing thought, a risk, a big step, a breakdown just to get out of the way to SEE!

Are you ready to start the RE-EVOLUTION OF YOUR SUCCESS!

Mirror images, always connected

Mirror images, always connected

This Earth Spirit Journeysblog has certainly been a long time coming! Since January 6 I have made an amazing drive across from West to East coasts and mostly back again as I am now in Denver. Northern California to Florida to Missouri to Colorado….pushing 6,000 miles. Tomorrow from Denver I head for Taos, NM for a stay of at least 3 months. And all this magically unfolded less than a week ago.

What has been so interesting about this whole time is that I have been “revisiting the past” . My friends in Denver were best friends of my children’s father growing up. I meet them in 1978 when we moved to the US from Sydney and I hadn’t seen or spoken to them in years. I was also taken back to 2003 when I drove from Denver to Florida’s East Coast on faith for unknown reasons and outcomes. Serendipitous meetings, emails and phone calls from people I knew back then and in the years between till now have been showing up. Comments like “I just started thinking about you”; “came across your business card”; “your name came up in conversation”..…..Has this happened to you lately?  Are similar coincidences happening and having you revisit the past in different ways?

What prompted this posting today was some writing I came across when reviewing videos I produced years back. The writing was “channeled messages” of January 1, 2010 when in Mt Shasta, CA. The tone of the writing is unusual and old. I now remember hearing those voices and language patterns quite often yet have not for quite a while. Today I realize I miss “the Collection of Many” as they called themselves.  I hope they are getting ready to return!

electrical flow and all connecting elements of gold , silver and copper.

I am going to share the messages given to me for this is what THEY have asked. It is a revisiting and remembering of a common thread, “the crystal skulls” as you will seen. Granted some of the references will have no relevance yet others may resonate. Note the reference to “Ukanatun – the cranium of Maximus de Porte Belle”  (Max the beautiful door)……this is MAX the Crystal Skull.      (I am not a follower of these teachings yet pay attention to information when so profoundly shown to me)

Their message was very firm in this regard……Skull is the incorrect term for these crystal forms. The skull is the bone casing that holds the brain in place therefore it is not the skull that has the intelligence yet the brain matter within, thus the term “Cranium” should be used. And the Brain is the “beautiful door” to the knowledge, intelligence and consciousness gathered through Mind and Universal Space Frequencies.  Sounds like they are here!

And somehow all of this is tied to the meanings and purpose within my latest paintings although that is yet to be revealed. These last two follow the flow of the painting in the last posting “Healing the Waters of Japan and the World Mandala”. I don’t have names for these yet they are powerful when standing on or in their presence. So interesting this arty journey!

Below is the writing mentioned. The timeline is the clue.  As you will see they were preparing me/us for the times we have passed through and are in now.

January 1 2010

February 2004             St Augustine – Lecture on Belize, Maya and Crystal Skulls

March 2008                 Trip to France – Alet Les Bains circle of 6 skulls on a remote mountain top

September 2009          Mt Shasta        9/9/9 ceremony atop Mt Shasta – table of skulls assembled

January 2010               Mt Shasta        Max the crystal skull coming to house!

My greatest potential from all incarnations of soul and physical being are coming forth now for total expression of knowledge. Thus within time you will reveal knowledge and integrity of the past that were compromised and revoked and later hidden for the protection of man and life as you evolved.

 Can you now handle the truth! Can you on earth now use and accept universal truth as it was intended rather than as it has been adjusted and manipulated!

You are in a time of proving once again if your combined consciousness is willing to take this path. The truths you are seeking are for the community. You are soon to be connect with the cranium of Max – Ukanatun., will take you and others into remembering process of the past in new ways not shown until now. They think all is known of Max- Ukanatun, yet there are surprises in store and we look forward to seeing once again the brilliance of your smiles for these to will light the way of seeking.

Remember little one the stories you were given in that place of St Augustine – the village, the landing of the Spaniard, Ponce de Leon, the tiny child and his father, the Chief – you were remembering an important time.

Remember the coming together of the circle of the craniums atop the ancient mount in the land of genocide –there was so much work ,as you call it, done. Re-walking the land once fled on, anew, on occasion. Review the pictures of mountains and you will see with eyes beyond now – breathe and pray to surrender souls caught and flowers will bloom where none have bloomed from times long past.

Remember your entry into the crystal room within the Grand Pi. (Great Pyramid) Regard once again the diamond. Its modern understanding to access the alchemical meaning forgotten. Remember your joy and awe upon returning to that table of never leaving yet traveling beyond.

As you know, all the experiences we give you are always witnessed as you call it by many others so you cannot ignore and deny these realities. Remember as you write you reignite the memories of the puzzle pieces thus spread upon the table. Yes, you understand there is always far more than one picture scene within the vast design.

RE – 95 – 14/5          C & F/G                                                Cranium    34/7

Check the languages for RE – look at Hebrew alphabet, Sanskrit, Cherokee, Mayan

Reguard Yourself! For today, we rest now to allow your cranium to take form again to re-form and re-member reality  (re-all-to-see.)

Can you share with me who are you transcribing through me?

We are a collection of many from places beyond. Just as the raindrops on the branches of today – we come and go as nourishment is needed. We shall return.

End!

Good Morning!

Through the fog and mist one sees little but the veil yet as the mist clears all behind is revealed. This is what you are seeking. Yet the mist cannot be cleared before time has moved the weather flow and set the new cycle in motion.

And so it is with where you stand so to speak. We have taken you back and through remembering in these past days and nights your sleep has been in stillness so contrary from weeks earlier. Much is being transferred.

As you were surprised to learn of the secret at the end of the chess game, is that not what you all seek – The Elixir of Life. As that man first encountered on the shores of this so called new land, Ponce de Leon, as the tiny one, you saw the darkness and knew the secret must be hidden. All your journeys through the eons of time have been to the same end, for that is what you knew so long and it was destroyed.

Well of others you all in connection must show and stand strong in integrity of the great secret. This secret is simple in its manifestation yet so complex in it derivations. The pieces we have revealed again, place them on the paper at random and as revealed lines will form and you will see the next clue. We smile at your joy of revealing!

Regard the map of where you have been. Place a X to mark the spots and then step back and time will do the magic for time is the clue yet not your time as known now.

Ukanatun – the cranium of Maximus de Porte Belle will help unlock a chamber of time. Remember there is much between the heart and point of light within the middle head – Ou les vielle de faire voi!

Your friend the fairy of your court played in the land of illusion her memories here are true and hold a clue to all.

The one who lived in solitude yet not in mountains far is seeking hard too much to push – step back and see the fair veil true. One he knew in robes saffron bright taught well yet missed the mark. Fair he be careful now to not fall into same trap and fail to see the light. Answers lie within the many as you both have learned to see so be aware and trust within.

Remember your Russian/Pole who danced as free. Cosmology, Physics, Biology were the path he took and found the pot of gold. Yet listened not to counsel wise by staying with the chamber bare for all around fear truth more than the light of Elixir pure. 

This man of wisdom rich, you talk again to see and hear and help in just to be – for presence is a power import, as the mists you presently see.

Presences, patience, peace   – 7 is the key!

Until next time…….
