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.

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.

Today is Yellow Magnetic Sun in the 13 Moon Mayan Calendar  –  A Day of Enlightenment and Purpose

A good day to pull the head out of the sand!

Read Full Post »

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.

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.

In the wee hours of last Tuesday morning my friend Stephanie and I arrived back from our trip to the desert, Palm Springs and Joshua Tree, to visit a friend. We knew it would be hot but you know, you forget how hot, hot is! Our 5 days ranged from 104 to 109 degrees, with nights in the high 80s! It was too hot for Stephanie so she spent most of the days inside beside a fan. Pool water was not much of a relief as it boarded on bath temp water.

I had to get out and made several trips to the town Joshua Tree, twenty-five miles from Palm Springs. The two main reasons people come to the town are Joshua Tree National Park and the Joshua Tree Retreat Center or The Institute of Mentalphysics. Joshua Tree Main Street has a small selection of cafe, restaurants and bars, craft and souvenir, bank, gas and necessities and not much else. Yubba Valley just six miles away provides the locals with all their shopping needs.  The Retreat Center of 400 plus areas hosts classes, gatherings and festivals throughout the year and people come from all over the world.

I was told the National Park brings 200,000 plus visitors to this little town, although very few actually stop here, they just keep of driving! I learned to appreciate the stark beauty of the summer desert in New Mexico. Dry parched soil. Plants and cactus varieties have adapted and sustained themselves in spite of the dryness and heat. Amazing rock formations dot the landscape and offer protection for the occasional oasis that appear out of nowhere, offering wildlife the blessing of water. For me, walking, sitting and taking in the beauty of nature, feeling the ancestors in the wind and listening to the calls of wildlife bring peace and clarity not found in the everyday hustle bustle world.

Medicine Gardening

The other morning started with a major weeding project before installing a drip system in the veggie garden. A couple of weeks ago the then “innocent looking” weeds didn’t look too threatening but after lovely sunshine, lots of water and a week away the growth was tremendous. At the same time the veggies had made good progress but not to the same degree. This year as a medicine woman gardener I have marveled at the fact we have had no problems with destructive bugs, fungus or gophers, even though there are holes in many of the beds. We have used nothing at all and the soil seems balanced and accommodating to all varieties. Loving medicine magic seems to work except with the weeds!

Walking for World Peace

In the last blog I mentioned a new offering of beautiful custom hand-painted labyrinths available for anyone or any business/organization looking to enhance the body, mind and spirit connections for those in the lives. Unbeknown to me at the time this project was/is to get bigger and after much ignoring of such a fact I stepped into the guidance. You are still able to order your very own beautiful labyrinth from Earth Spirit Journeys

“Walking for World Peace” is the name of this project and will be initiated this weekend at the Mystic Garden Gathering in Selma, Or. (A gathering I never expected to ever attend….shows what I know!) The new focus of this music gathering will enhancing and understanding community more, empowering through great and diverse music, yoga,  meditation, dance and sharing without drugs  and alcohol. Last night as a few of the volunteers shared fabulous pizza cooked on the open fire, rain drizzling in the background (it later rained all night), I listened and learned from the young adults present, the ages of my sons, some of their desires, fears, understandings and realities. And I understood why I am to be present.  They want a better world, not most of the garbage that is being presented for in 30 years this generation will be the leaders of the world….a very new world of their creation….not the one that is crumbling before our eyes.

They know, as so many of us already know, change happens from within first, to then emanate out into the world through actions, integrity, purpose and vision. Walking the labyrinth is a practice to get in touch and claim the grounded self. “Walking for World Peace” will be a video diary of everyone who participates beginning this weekend and coincides with Dr. Emoto’s Prayers for the Waters of Japan and the World on July 25th. On Monday I’ll be at Aquarius Books in Grants Pass, OR and the following weekend in Mt Shasta at a City Park festival. After that I am to take the labyrinth down through various communities in California and then beyond. Each month I ‘ll put out the video diary of all who are sharing in Walking for World Peace.” To support the travel and editing expenses of this project each person who walks the labyrinth will be asked to gift a donation as an energy exchange…..all amounts will be accepted in great gratitude.

World Peace WILL NOT come through the lack of war, anger, greed, corruption and power.

It will come and does come as EACH PERSON grows in peace within themselves, in understanding of themselves and their roles in life…..a not so easy and never ending seeking journey…..even when one leaves this life it continues in more earnest. Another topic!

If you would like to host or have Waling for World Peace come to your community please let me know.

Young or old, rich or poor ….we are all equal in the eyes of the Divine Creator by all names, colors, creeds and beliefs!

And as the Angels whispered I turned to hear their voices rejoice with love, joy and truth that all the world seeks!”

My grandson Brayden taken by his mother Shannon Gray

So many wonderful and precious memories flood back as reminders of the early days of parenthood with my son’s Jerame and Mathew.

Yet what else surfaced the moment I saw this beautiful photograph was myself in times throughout my life history, innocent and praying in a purity of Light. How precious a vibration to hold for conscious change within and without!

July is hot and filled with travel!

Growing up in the southern hemisphere, July was pushing the mid point of winter and staying warm was mostly on one’s mind. In those days of youth I was not into meditation as that was done when I lost myself in classical ballet. Looking back though, July was a marker of changes being irritated from within because September  (6 months after my birthday) mostly marked big change and travel, especially from 18 years old until now.

This is part of the energetic vibrational pattern of my life established by and through my Soul’s history and evolution. Can you recognize your own personal life patterns and Soul history for clues of your patterns?  Markers are often found during: birthday month; 4th month following; mid point month and 9th/10th month before next birthday. Markers may have to do with major moves or change, illnesses, family dynamics, emotional lows and highs, so many different possibilities. See what you can intuit from these awareness’s!

Since living in the northern hemisphere, July (especially the first week) now has the opposite message but similar theme but physically: staying cool, it is one of moving, traveling and changes of all types. Major family moves and life changes initiating new beginnings have happened at this time.

Tomorrow, along with my friend Stephanie, we are heading to Palm Springs and Joshua Tree in the desert of California. Sounds crazy seeing the temperatures will be 108 +! Something is calling, the need to travel, get out and have a little adventure. The call of Joshua Tree in particular is big yet we have no idea of what to expect. Let us be surprised!

Pull It Back to Bring It Forward!

“Peaking through the veils of our New Earth and her incredible promise now of Light and Joy I see such moments to remember as the innocence of first love which is more importantly friendship; of magic in youth in places still resonating magic; of so many angels sharing and protecting and gifting the lessons to greater wisdom of heart and soul. Resonating in magic and Unity of Oneness, memory of threads the Angelic’s weave to see and remember who we lost to gain and claim ourselves again.”

In the past two weeks I have been taken both in dreamtime and in waking light to reminisce of special relationships and their importance in who I am becoming in the next wave on this amazing life journey.

Speaking to several friends this past week has revealed that they to are experiencing a remembering of times and events in their teens, 20s and early 30s. Remembering who we were, what was special about each of us during those incredible years of development through the stages of family and fitting into the constrains of child rearing and income/identity masks. What was lost to become someone else for someone else!

Claim back your magic to be able to resonate and live in harmony with the You of the past, blending with the wisdom of the Now to ignite possibilities with the New Earth Light Harmonics!

This is living in fifth dimension mysticism!

In my last posting I mentioned Part 2 of the video on Time Collapsing would be coming. Well, after having many false starts, glitches and plain, not good production, I put it on hold for now…perhaps I am not to reinvent the wheel so to speak.

Check out this YouTube site…it is long but they have done a fabulous job of giving the viewer  concise and  important information on 2012, time, history and so much more.   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jc-55p1Al9k&feature=channel_video_title

One of the wonderful features WordPress are the stats that are available about one’s blog.  To my surprise probably the most visited blog entry has been on my experience at the Lakota Sundance several years ago. It appears there is an incredible interest and fascination about this Native American ceremony. It was a significant time for me and powerful way to respect beautiful people of this land.

There are so many stories to share!
