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

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!

family joyA week ago I journeyed back to Kansas City for a visit with son Jerame, his wife Kate and nine month old Flora. Returning visits are about “picking up where we left off, remembering through stories and forging ahead to see the new unfolding.

Jerame and Kate’s current abode is a lovely home with a huge magnificent vibrant garden yard…. trees, flowers, critters, birds, deer make you believe that busy city life is miles from here when in fact it is surprisingly close. Everyday Flora and I spend time sitting and playing on the grass, doing a bit of yoga, singing and connecting with the unseen sparkly fairy magic all around.

Yesterday was a “get out of town day” and so we headed East to more memories and meetings of the past and joys of today – visiting Marshall and Arrow Rock, Missouri.

Another lifetime and world away….. Seventeen years ago Tim and I moved to Marshall, Missouri – a small rural town 83 miles east of Kansas City – He was the Minister for a church and congregation for four years…..lots of memories and stories there!

At little show off time with Flora was called for so a visit with Rebecca was first. Along with her huswith Flora 1band Dan and his father, she reminded us “we are the reason you ended up here!” So true! Hearing her family news, meeting of children, seeing the subtle and not so subtle changes through age allowed for smiles and hugs all round. A quick drive past the old house and then onto our destination…..the tiny village of Arrow Rock, seventeen miles through the countryside.

swim spotSettler’s history starts around 1820s after the War of 1812 when early migration west on what became the Santa Fe Trail took hold. Arrow Rock’s history can be followed from the Native American tribes, early explorers looking for opportunities of land and commerce, the rise of enslaved African Americans, economic  impact of the Civil War and fires, decline of river commerce and traffic with the advent of train travel has brought this little village down to a population of less than 50 today.

Highlight of the day was meeting with Liz Huff, Owner/Chef of Catalpa Restaurant. Liz and Jerame have known each other for many years yet this was the first visit in quite a long time especially since getting married to Kate and having Flora. Fun and stories were shared while enjoying the amazing food at this tiny (8 tables) AWARD WINNING restaurant way off the beaten track. 2012/2013 Best Rural Restaurant in Missouri by Rural Missouri Magazine.

For a mini-blog review   See Catalpa’s Face Book Page.

Until next time……Blessings each day!

Dear Readers,

As you know from my last posting another bout of traveling was coming up. Well now I have been away nearly 2 1/ weeks visiting my sons and their families in Kansas City and St Petersburg, Florida. I’ll keep it short mainly because I am sure you really don’t want to hear too much bragging about how amazing my grand children and their parents are. Although reluctant at first of the grandparent role I now join the ranks with pride.

Huge waves of remembering pass though each day as I have spend precious time with these new little people. Remembering each father/my sons at the same ages, their personalities, tempers, challenges to authority, speed of movement and each having a mind of their own…..and nothing particularly has changed….they are their own persons, as are their wives.

Several times I have caught myself laughing at either hearing someone say (or remembering myself saying it) “I’ll never let my child do that!” and similar phases that include the word NEVER…..they say wisdom comes at a price and yes it is true when the NEVER word used in pretty much any context. From my experience as soon as one says THAT word it opens the “practical joke door” of the Universe with a response of “Are you sure about that!” Invariably that very thing/s we are determined to stay clear of are the VERY THINGS that are done or brought to us to either keep the peace and quiet, pacify,  distract or avoid. I can only see all of this so clearly now because several decades have passed to allow for 20/20 vision…..yet unfortunately the same cannot be said of my physical eyes! Oh well!

Through the magic of spontaneous photo shots and magic energy I/We have been gifted with these special photos that one day in the distant future Brayden and Flora will perhaps share with their own children, remember and tell stories of a world they arrive in. I wonder what it will be like! This photo of me and Brayden was taken today during a very rare moment of him actually looking at the camera…look at the beautiful transparent energy rainbow circle and the misty beings above us….truly magical!

Next week I am facilitating a workshop on the Four Principles to Empowerment in Boca Raton.  I will also by available for private consultations on October 23 to 25th. Space is still available if interested. Contact me through my website http://www.earthspiritjourneys.com for details.

Today, October 19 marks the beginning of a new moon in the Mayan 13 Moon Calendar. It will cover 28 days , as each month does. This is “Tones 4 – Self-Existing Owl Moon of Form – What is the Form my Service will take? is the question being addressed and revealed in the daily unfolding process. The first day is marked by the Seal of the Yellow Magnetic Seed – Kin 144 …..so do not be surprised if things, ideas and manifestations that were “seeded” in the past, even distant past begin to germinate and sprout out of the darkness (just as the wise owl sees in the dark and traverses the night skies).  My return to Boca Raton marks nine years (complete cycle in numerology) from when I arrived there after driving from Denver, CO. At that time I only knew one person there, had no job, no place to live, no idea why I was “guided” to be there yet knew it was significant, and indeed it was!

I return to honor and complete the gathering and claiming of knowledge and tools of ancient times. And I ask the questions……with this chapter complete how will the next chapter begin? what will it be about, who will share the journey to the greatness that lies ahead?  how will I know when the answers are right in front of me?  The same way you always know – TRUST!

I’ll keep this posting short and writing more shortly.

Blessings to all…until…..

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!

Thankfully in a few days Mercury will be in direct mode again and clarity will come to mind. I have spend the better part of the past several days trying to access my You Tube/Google accounts to upload some new videos for you. Because of technology and my limited knowledge video upload have to follow a particular protocol in order to work.  My frustration came when both YT and G said my username/passwords/emails were not correct even though I have used these in the past. After hours of reading instructions my mind could not connect with, combination’s working part way and then stopping and my stubborn insistence “that a machine will not get the better of me” only led to massive frustration but finally success or at least I hope so, they are loading onto YT as I write.

Relationships and the Connection!

As I have mentioned in earlier blogs the 5th Dimension is about grounding the upper and lower dimensions and body (reference to the chakras) into 5th Dimension present time. For a little more understanding on this read my blog entry on 5th Dimension Mysticism.

So many on any special spiritual journey, particularly in the early stages of learning the ropes, try to avoid the lower stuff (1st, 2nd, 3rd chakras) to stay high up there (5th, 6th and 7th chakras) and completely ignore or avoid the Heart.  This is part of the learning curve and pretty much every one goes through it at some stage. In the early years I was in the same place determined to be enlightened and of a higher vibration, seeking always from and trying to reside in the upper realm. The reason being it feels too painful, challenging and harsh down here!

This does change, at least it did for me, as I learned more about myself, the world of spirit, mysticism, the unseen and of nature. All to realize as part of the human experience it is to not avoid one or the other, yet it is to incorporate and integrate all.

As the days unfold between postings I become anxious as to the next posting’s focus and where the inspiration will come from. This took a little longer because of the vastness of the topic – Relationships Me/You and the Other. The answer to knowing another is to KNOW YOURSELF first and this is a life long journey. I will share with you various tools and modalities I have and do use for Me to understand Me more!

The original seed came from the piece I wrote on Lisa Kristine photography in the last entry. Her images and the faces looking back triggered a creative project which I hope to birth one day. My relationship to the Other was the clue. As further days unfolded meeting with various people as well as the engagement of Spirit realm messages breathed further life into clues.

This last week I had a reunion of sorts with Naomi Tickle, an English woman I met last November. Naomi’s gift and renown is in the fields of Personology or Face Reading and it is fascinating. So last Friday we got together and I taped an interview with her which I will share with you. I have edited it into short segments for easier viewing  – parts 1 and 2 will be here (I hope).

Social Network Relationships

Another clue into exploring this topic further took me into unfamiliar territory – the dating networks. I have a dear friend who is very familiar with them and she has had amazing and disastrous results. It was a conversation with her that prompted me to check it out – maybe I would find that “perfect person!” I signed up at Plenty of Fish and did an initial search. In the area where I am presently and then expanded it to other places I have or would like to live…..I was/am amazed at the number of people seeking connections….the perfect connection….the play connection….any connection!

Reading profiles for men of all ages and interests. Some were more along the short, to the point I want to have fun. Others shared a great deal of what they want, what they won’t accept, or perhaps what their reality can only dictate.

Next I created my own account and put it up. This was scary for me! Within a few hours I had several messages and noticed quite a lot of views of my profile. Of course I am in the “not so attractive age range” which has an impact on who will check you out. I did receive a couple of blatant date requests which were returned with a Thank you but No! Most of the other interest came from men who seemed genuine yet I am not or would not have and interested in. Last night I did have dinner with an older man who had lived in Sydney. It was nice sharing stories of living there and why he is here now. A friendship but nothing else!

You can spend hours searching through the profiles. The time just disappeared. After a while I started feeling antsy and my mind was getting fuzzy yet charged. Later as I reflected I came to this conclusion: I am very sensitive to energy and vibrations – the more I stayed on the site and searched the more I was taping into the consciousness focused throughout the site by users. With each person, thousands of men and women, their focus is on “finding the right person” and the chaos of that is amplified not only through the search process but also through their own personal chaos of who they are, what they desire, where they have been hurt, what they will accept and what they won’t accept. Lost, sad, rejected, angry, hurt – all this was so easy to read between the lines.

There is nothing like the personal meeting, the contact in real time and space. Yet because our world is so expansive in some ways and small in others, technology seems to be filling in massive gaps but at a huge price as I see it. Where do you go to meet the right person/people? How do you know when to turned at the right time and place for something to happen? How to we renew the emotional body to feel ourselves with love? I am great at asking the questions…. I am still learning as is everyone else. This investigation has reminded me of  magical meetings I have had in the past, of meetings that had a very karmic or fated quality, as though they were meant to happen to either fulfill or complete a previous encounter, from times long past. I will share a couple with you and perhaps they will awaken memories for you.

The first one was in Charlottesville, VA. One afternoon I was strolling down the Mall in downtown. It was a lovely afternoon and I was in a quiet mood just window shopping. As I walked a man was coming towards me and as he past I looked up for a split second, eyes connected and moved on. I didn’t give any more thought to it. A little while late, still in my own little world, I felt someone standing next to me at a distance. I paid no attention. A moment later this man speaks, he excuses himself and says “I am not stalking you but I need to know who you are!”  Why was my response.!

“When I saw you earlier, as we passed and our eyes connected, I saw something, I know you, I don’t understand!” I think I laughed a little as this had happened before. Something or someone seems to be looking out of my eyes (in a good way). James and I stood and chatted there for a few minutes. He shared he was visiting family but lives and works in Europe. I asked where! Vienna! Oh my Goodness! I lived in Vienna in my twenties and I told him where. He knew the exact place! How amazing is this! So over dinner that night and spending time together the next day we shared more commonalities and stories of traveling to and doing similar things in Europe. It was wonderful for the short encounter that it was. In fact we still connect by email maybe once a year and so I will sent this and I’m sure he will smile!

Another encounter along these lines was on a Sunday when I went to a Tea Dance  outside of Washington DC. I would enjoy dancing yet often became very frustrated when many of the dance partners were not so light on their feet! A gentleman comes and asks me to dance and I was about to say no but didn’t. He was overweight, about my height, a mass of unruly grey hair and a bread. But as I found out he had great rhythm, was light on his feet, loved to improvise movements and carried me around the room flowing and twirling. I was amazed! At a break was chatted and I was curious as to who he was/is. “I’m Polish, educated in Russia, speak five languages and I am a cosmologist, physicist and a biologist! I was blown away! We became great friends, loved having dinner together, he talked, I listened and learned so much. I shared my energy and sound work with him and although he would not openly admit it, he approved. When we did go out people would often do a double take, we looked like Jackie and Aristotle Onassis – complete opposites, both Aries! We still email or call each other once a year or so.

Connections like these and I am sure you also have had similar, come though the physical meeting but are initiated in or by an unseen force or recognition. This may be able to happen though the social networks but for the untrained everyday person these very subtle clues may get totally missed.  Once again learning more about oneself opens more awareness into recognizing the Other! This is the crux of living in the 5th Dimension – it is nothing new, we are just being reminded of how to Do and Be it again!

I am considering offering affordable workshops and seminars on this huge topic – Relationships – Me/You and the Other.   Let me know if you would be interest in this and where you are located

Until next time….

Since the last entry it is as though I have immersed myself in a bubble of finding my way in this new city and wishing life to unfold as I desire it to look! Which of course it doesn’t….yet it will be right!

I am in Ashland, OR as explained previously and the past week has been on e of cold temps, snow, rain, sun and all in between. Discovering the communities of dance, art, music, walks in nature, students speaking out, meeting new people and the potential of amazing ideas actually evolving has kept me away from world events and what is happening or not beyond my safe confines.World events-Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, New Zealand, plus many others show us where courage and compassion live, what it is to move from fear and blockage to power, courage and shared vision….and all is beyond politics at the end of the day because it is the pure truth within hearts that make this happen.

Earlier in the week this came up from within me….where is my courage, what am I doing to make a difference as a sparkle of potential in this lifetime! I didn’t know what to write about today, just that I had to connect with you. Then opening up wordpress the link below caught my attention and so I followed it……hope you do the same thing.

http://zoetropic.wordpress.com/2011/03/01/protest-egypt-france-venezuela/

This young woman was writing my feelings for today…it is about finding and operating in courage and purpose to make the greater potential possible. She hasn’t experienced living in the midst of massive demonstrations of change that challenge and dismantle the status quo set forth for hundreds/thousands of years. In the past I have stepped into and though different forms of courage yet today I feel empty which is probably exactly where I will find the next expression of courage and purpose to engage in….and I can pretty much guarantee it won’t look like anything I plan!

Next week I will be presenting my “conscious awakening theater” experience in Ashland titled “Awakening Ecstasy In-Formation…New Twists on Money, Power, Sex and Death”…the title always gets attention and offen a little disease, can’t image why! If you happen to be in Ashland come and join us…contact me for more details.

I am going to leave you with this short entry today with many questions unanswered and even more forming. Between now and our next meeting it will be interesting to see what appears besides my new grandson who will make his entry sometime within the next 36 hours…in time for the New Moon in Pisces on Friday!

As always..Blessings to All of our connections through Soul Vision!
