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.

Sacred Entry Mandala latest painting completed

Watching the movie Julie & Julia the other night reactivated the desire for the Muse to write again. Following the unfolding of Julie Powell’s journey through Julia Child’s “Mastering the Art of French Cooking” bought many moments of laughter, remembering Paris and the desire to eat wonderful French cuisine.

Although deemed a chick flick my friend thoroughly enjoyed the characters, antics, amazing food and of course Paris once again.

The break in writing has been long – too long – last entry way back in June while I was in Taos, NM.

After an absence of nine months from Mount Shasta I returned the second week of July to the mountain and waters I love and that feel more like home with each return, this one especially. On my way back from Taos I attended the 10 day Solstice Retreat of yoga, meditation and teaching at the Yogi Bhajan Puri outside of Espanola, NM. Powerful times with wonderful people and many experiences beyond words.earthship in Taos

From there I drove to Santa Rosa for a few days rest and then onto Santa Cruz for the 4 day West Coast Dowsing Conference where I presented on “Our Lives as Living Matrices” and my 12 x 15 foot Walking for World Peace Labyrinth, many experiencing its powerful healing and illuminating energies while walking it paths.

It was from here I headed north to the mountain. A day earlier my mother passed, albeit it occurred 12,000 miles away in Australia. My son was with her and in the last phone call he held the phone up and I talked to her and remembered for 20 minutes or so. Suddenly the connection dropped out. Jerame called back a few minutes later

and said “she has passed”. I am so grateful for those moments we had. Ours had been a mother/daughter relationship often of challenge and I had not been to Australia for twelve years, each attempt stopped for lack of funds or issues going on.

The moments afterwards were amazing. I literally knew she was free, liberated and happy as never before. I saw “her essence” and still do as never before also and I still do feel and know she is close to me. It has been the most unexpected experience and I am grateful.

I have also found my life and Being has changed and I am more content, joyful and blessed that ever before it seems. I am experiencing something she desired yet never was able to have or attain and I believe her heart is rejoicing from such healing.

south gate meadow, mt shastaThis time in Mount Shasta has been special for many reasons. Beautiful hikes to South Gate (aka Squaw Meadow); Panther Meadow, Castle Lake, camping on the mountain, singing, cooking new recipes, sharing with lots of laughter accompanied by a dear friend. Friendship, laughter, challenge, love, respect – all these make a powerful mixture.

Also new and former clients have surfaced requesting my guidance and assistance. Several very powerful sessions with them have facilitated awakenings, healing and new life perspectives for their consideration. This work is where I take Life Coaching to the realm of Life Alchemy.

The Muse’s quiet appearance came with a push to create an E-Book (as it is faster than regular publishing) of my Art, Stories and Poetry with the dedication to my grand children most specifically. “Something for them to know more about you, as Mehmah, when they are older”. With such a purpose it is more likely to get completed! At least so far there are 15 + pages committed.

1Since my last posting life has taken on a faster and divergent path and continues to get more interesting as each day passes. I am sure many of you Readers are finding the same in your own lives…it is a sign of the times.

Returning from KC with a new found creative purpose it did not take long for the space and a new vision to come into alignment. Arriving back in Mt Shasta after a month plus away placed me indoors for 5 days as a late June unexpected cold, rain and snow mix descended around the mountain and town.

Within the beautiful space that encircled me I began to paint again and this time a new and unexpected series was birthed. These paintings will now or at least when I get the steps and connections together, be the featured “original art” on the revised version of “En-Lighten-MEnt” the cards and games I developed a year or so ago. (Progress to fulfillment can be a slow sometimes, most times!)3

The theme presented is in perfect time for the universal galactic activation of our new life and world matrix…..the one prophesied for an oh so very, very long time….The True Age of Aquarius, The Feminine Rebirth, the New 26,000 Years of Light. The next Big Dates – July 24 – 26, 2013 with entry into the Year of the Yellow Galactic Seed ….just a few days away when “per se” Planet Earth will choose which New Galactic Holographic Beam Matrix to magnetize and anchor into for the new/next evolution of history covering 5,000, 10,000, 26,000 years……who really know how many vast number of years it will be……to learn more visit the Law of Time and the vast work of Jose Argüelles. Also check out the up coming astrology’s of any tradition as there are powerful and unusual alignments indicating these amazing changes.

6Within the Seed, any Seed, all Seeds is the matrix of life hidden from view and outside knowledge waiting to germinate as conditions dictate. What will the Matrix within the Yellow Galactic Seed of the New Earth reveal for humanity as a whole……only Time and our Choices will reveal that!

During the storm the first four painting were begun and then with the return of sun and warmth I moved to the river and land for continued inspiration which produced the next four paintings. As you will see the common threads in all are the igniting Seed, the Mother Goddess, the Holographic Matrix, Sacred Symbols, DNA, the Lotus, Crystals, Rainbows and Labyrinths of Color, Co-operation and Unity. The background color of each original painting has been infused with fine Larimar Crystals to further amplify the energy of the message within the painting. This, I have been shown will continue to manifest even in prints. I plan to add a layer of this crystal wash to selected prints which will be available to purchase.

My Crazy Schedule this days! After finishing the paintings I had a week or so off to rest and enjoy the company of friends in Shasta. Then the road trips began……the distiller

blossoms7/11-15 I drove 6 hours north to Silverton, OR to spend the weekend with Ginger and Helmuth’s family and friends harvesting Lavender on their farm. Slow tedious work but the results were worth it. Bouquets of Flowers, oils and hydrosols, laughter, fun, music and food! Plus sharing my Labyrinth and holding a ceremonial space while many had their turn at walking the paths.at work

7/15  – One night in Mt. Shasta.

7/16 – 21 – 4 1/2 hours drive to Squaw Valley, CA to participate in the Wanderlust Yoga and Music Festival. Yesterday I did 6 hours of yoga classes so today the body is a little sore! Just loved the Kundalini Yoga class 

7/21 – 25 – Return to Mt Shasta for the Law of Time Conference.

8/1-5  –  Facilitate a Private Retreat in Sonora

8/9-11 – Presenting at the BEST of Mt Shasta Conference. Also holding ceremonial space for people to walk The Walking for World Peace Labyrinth.

8/16-18 – Presenting and participating in the In The Light Festival in Mt Shasta.

And then…….that is yet to be revealed!

If you are in any of these areas at the same time, please let me know and I would love to meet you.

Blessings each day until we meet again!

After spending nearly six weeks away visiting my sons and their families and being blessed by so many joys and memories (see previous posting) I am now back on the West Coast in Northern California, at present house and pet sitting for dear friends. Next week I head to Mt Shasta once again to spend a good portion of the winter, if not all of it and beyond.

My life is much like everyone’s these days….plans for next moves don’t quite fit or resonate, lots of ifs, buts and perceived lack of support in so many ways…..thus very short turn-around plans are more called for with the caveat “pay attention to the synchronicity” each day for revision status if necessary!

What many people miss in the desire to plan outcomes and control people or situations is that the only piece that is reliable is “OUR OWN and how we respond in light of our knowing and perceived desires”. What is out of our hands and control is how “the other/s respond”. This is a big lesson….in the fulfillment of direction or action can the more appropriate gift or outcome be seen!

In your or any person’s private world there are those few who you can rely on to honor their word and actions. Then there is the other extreme with those who continually let you down at the last moment with excuse after excuse as to why not, yet many of us often hold the hope that they will change. And then there are those who “drop the ball” by being influenced by a third or fourth party whose insecurities are more at play in sabotage and to not have a chosen outcome, plus all other scenarios in between.

I am not beyond reproach unfortunately. There have been times that I have disappointed others, not intentionally yet perhaps I was too wrapped up in my own stuff, pain and insecurities to not see what was important to someone else. I try not to do that now yet I am not perfect! Now when I fall short I hope that “other one” can communicate and discuss what went wrong so clarity of connection can be established or re-established. If “they/we” don’t understand each others language (emotional, mental, generational and locational) then confusion and misunderstandings will always continue.

Do you Listen well and in turn Do you Hear what is being said?

This topic has come up recently with several friends in very different circumstances as well as for myself which makes one question what is being done wrong or incorrectly. Others choices influence outcomes!

While in Florida I had arranged to do some work with a client and present a workshop or two. We discussed everything and planned what appeared to be a great experience for all. This client also wanted to bring another “friend” into the planning which was OK with me. Topics, dates, ideas, fees and financial benefit/expenses for me were all covered. This was to be held in a very affluent area of Florida. I departed on the four hour drive with positive expectations.

During the next three days staying at my client’s home I was teaching and sharing life experiences as learning tools in relation to her questions and desires to learn and grow further. The day of the gathering eleven people were scheduled to be present (as I was told). During earlier conversations little pieces of information and concerns over the behavior and motives of the friend were brought up….red flags…..I could express my concerns and opinions yet knew I had to just play it out, do what I had come to do, teach and example.

As it turned out among other things…the friend arrived late with one other person, created delays totaling 45 minutes and left only a small portion of the agreed fee in change. The several other people there were very nice and interested. What I had planned to discussed got changed, not by me but from my guidance. Although the original topic on “Four Principles to Empowerment -To Release, To Claim, To Give and To Receive” was covered during the evening it was not as I had expected yet through other examples. Many other topics, not on my agenda were inserted and all in all it was a very powerful evening. A friend of mine who offered to videotape the evening commented later that I didn’t stick to the publicized topic. I agreed yet also had to say that because of all the other “changes and undermining” done “guidance” chose to move me and the information in other ways to the benefit of those present.

The actions (unknown to me) of one person influenced everyone originally interested in attending to the extent that many did not arrive. Later that evening I further learned my client had been influenced/told not to book any private sessions for me; that being paid was unnecessary and that I was competition for her, even though I was only in the area a few days!

The icing on the cake so to speak came the next day after  holding ceremony with the Labyrinth for my client. She had a profound experience bringing up tears. I shared with her that because of her friend’s actions many others had been denied the same experience she just had and that was sad.

Of course the whole experience would not have been complete without having to hear from my client “oh I don’t have any money now!” This was not true when her circumstances were seen from other perspectives, what she really had hidden away and some funds were provided.

In an ideal world there is the never-ending cycling and spiraling of energy to fulfill all our needs and desires, the real flow of the Four Principles to Empowerment. Yet when fear, control, doubt and lack in any and all forms surface then the beautiful magic of manifestation, love, growth and generosity are lost.

The huge losses from Hurricane Sandy, the generosity of unknown little people of humanity to help those in need……giving $16 million plus to big corporate entities like The Red Cross whose partial Mission is to help those in need, their Other Mission is to make money (research yourself) those in Need who are now asking where is The Red Cross, FEMA, Governments, Corporations and the Billionaires of the World to open their coffers wide and free of strings to release the massive financial energy locked away that has been gained at the expense of our World’s Population, every single person.

The Golden Age of Change is upon and within us…….In just over one month – 12/21 and beyond marks the absolute new beginning of time, space and life – a Beam cycle of 26,000 years literally ending for a new Beam of Light Life to be chosen…..these concepts are so far beyond what most anyone can fathom, never the less true.

I see these hard individual and collective lessons and awakenings (ancient to present), feelings of being unfulfilled and less than our greatness that have played out for thousands of years are moments for reflection on “what new Harmonic Galactic Beam will be chosen for Earth to travel in to the future NOW?”

Exercise: Standing at the crossroads, five doors appear around you…different colors different directions and different designs……contemplation, meditation, patience, love, compassion……which one will you choose to open and turn the Light on……the Light will reveal Heart and Soul’s desire!

For now Blessings to All…Until……..

Where to start after such a long break from putting fingers to keyboard as opposed to pen to paper. The last entry was dated July 26…the first day of the new year based on the Mayan 13 Moon Calendar. Because my WP date loading is slightly off and it was actually written and posted on the 25th – The Day out of Time.

What has transpired since then has been quite amazing in so many ways and on so many levels thus with the help of my current day timer I will recount parts of the journey. Right off the bat I will mentioned that many, many of my experiences were “internal in nature, very personal or totally beyond words” yet I will share what I can.

On July 24th I held ceremony at Shastice Park in Mt Shasta in the presence of seven other friends. Using the 12’x15′ Walking for World Peace Labyrinth each person walked and “held sacred space and intention” for one of the seven continents, them-self and their immediate world. This was to anchor in a presence for the transition into the new times marked by December 21, 2012 and beyond.

Within less than 24 hours my friend Nickki “in synchronization with flow” meets a teacher extraordinaire of the deep inner knowledge of the Mayan Calendar and the work of Jose Arguelles. For 20 plus years she had worked, learned and  followed within the inner circle as Jose and Lloydine tried to open minds and present this work to the world. What started for us as an overnight visit ended four and a half days later….hours and hours spent around a table in a home outside of Ashland, OR. Nickki and I were opened to information only to be found in the Cosmic History Chronicles (seven volumes) authored by Jose Arguelles and Stephanie South.

From the amazing vastness of information, the complexities and new explanations of Earth and Galactic history I now know more than ever, that our collective humanity has and continues to be manipulated, lied to and controlled by and with such hard to imagine power by very small and select few groups (on and off Planet Earth) only to benefit themselves and their ultimate purposes. This has been the case for seemingly thousands of years!

And along with this knowing I have also realized how incredibly imperative it is NOW for each beautiful, individual, divinely created human being living on and in all places on Earth to know and search for their own SELF and move beyond playing the clone robotic games. This is a massively tall order, for myself included. Yet to do nothing is more destructive than to pretend doing something and denying the problems surrounding us every day.

Please do not think that just the first thought and action a person takes  won’t make a difference to the grand plan.(even to prove that I am totally incorrect, if not a little delusional) In fact I will challenge each reader to disprove what I am saying.

Yet before there is any spouting off of accepted biblical texts from any of the religions, scientific, medical, metaphysical and paranormal treatises from well anchored sources…..first go to the pure source of ENERGETIC, VIBRATIONAL truth  WITHIN YOU, then to NATURE, then to PLACES OF NEW INFORMATION THAT CHALLENGE YOUR COMFORT ZONES, then to COMMON SENSE and then THE WORLD AROUND YOU and the VOLUMES of CONTRADICTIONS in every day life, media, government, health and so on.

This searching alone can be your first contribution to building the necessary conscious awareness on Earth for stepping into Earth’s New Humanity.

Synchronization Plus

Apart for a 10 day break from the end of June to mid July I have been camping on the sacred land of Mt Shasta, CA. This is the third summer I have followed such a calling and only yesterday did I move from there to get ready for a new journey.

During the past months of living in the woods it has been amazing the diverse people I have met and  the many incredibly circumstances presented along the way. New friends from here as well as UK, Europe, South America and beyond as well as old friends visiting to enjoy the land and magic;  giving assistance to others in need – ranging from others in several life threatening events to just the encouragement in word, deed and/or donation. To really understand the unusual evolution of a friendship, love and a possible “past life/karmic connection” being revisited yet also knowing it was only for a special time and letting go would ultimately be required. Also once again the mountain and land activated new creative juices in the form of  art mandalas and galactic signatures to expand the labyrinth story and power further.  During the past two summers on the mountain I created a 2-hour theater production, the Peace Labyrinth Tour and a collection of games and cards to promote spiritual and intuitive growth.

Next week I leave on another journey to Kansas City to meet my new grand daughter along with Dad/son, Jerame and Mum, Kate; then to Tampa to reacquaint with grandson, Brayden and Mathew/Dad and Shannon/Mum. Such blessings I look forward to! Florida is also allowing for me to visit the East Coast (Florida) for a few days, where I lived in 2003. To meet with old and new friends and clients and share my knowledge and healing gifts in a workshop or two.

Synchronization Foot Note

Since I began consciously following the 13 Moon Mayan Calendar and understanding more about the natural time (ratios of 13:20) verses the unnatural mechanistic time created by our traditional (ratio 12:60) calendar I am amazed daily or even hourly how synchronicity and flow are more obvious and decisions or directions are naturally obvious. These are fascinating studies for anyone up to the challenge. www.lawoftime.org  (Foundation for the Law of Time)

For now I will say ….Until the Muse is moved again….. Open yourself to art, creation, the new. I have never painted in such ways before…if I can, you can try the new also!

Blessings to all during each day of these powerful times.

Mt Shasta is shrouded in clouds as I look out of the window…..high atop new snow is probably falling since the lower elevations were gifted with more rain than expected over night. Caught me a little by surprise so a trip to the laundry mart was necessary to dry out. No big deal after so many days of beautiful weather here. One can smell the clean fresh life coming forth after the nurturing waters.

These are powerful times. Two weeks ago we had the long anticipated new moon solar eclipse, last night a lunar eclipse and nearly a full moon, tomorrow (Tuesday) at 6:30PST the last point of the latest Venus Transit (2004 it began this particular journey). This once in a lifetime (just over a hundred years cycle) Venus will pass in front of the Sun aligning and balancing the true creation forces of the Masculine Sun with the Feminine Venus birthing an energy for our new life paradigm. Then on June 20-21 the Summer Solstice marks the summer and all the play, joy, gatherings, love and blessed creativity within to be expressed outwards by those in the North while in the South this same time marks the slow moving inwards from those summer days towards the quietening of life three months hence in Autumn (Fall).

No matter what the day or time there is always the opposite balance in play, with each step we are walking to or walking away from and then to again…..so is he flow of life.

Last week I began to write to you and when I returned to complete the writing lost the lot! This mountain and my stays upon her always open the creative process for me. This time is no different. I am once again grounding in a theatrical piece that I am very pleased with…..more will come in the near future.

Recently traveled to Sacramento to work with a couple of small groups, gathered together be a friend of mine. It is always wonderful meeting new people, sharing and assisting in my unique way and watching the special energetic changes made as healing and knowing reveals itself.

Upcoming is a trip to Oregon to visit a wonderful family I met during the Eclipse. They all walked my labyrinth during that powerful time as did many others – so special a time for all.

I am also preparing for the South West Dowsers Conference on July 6-10th in Santa Cruz. I will be sharing the Labyrinth for walks and doing readings and sharing my other gifts.

Will share more at another time….wishing you all great revelations each moment……..

              First one at 5:18 with moon just under a quarter over the sun.   Second one at 5:23 and the third one at 6:34.

My little camera is plain and simple but I thought it would capture both shapes of sun and moon….Don’t you love the huge matrix orb above the sun.  What a special day!

I had my labyrinth out on the grass in between the mountain and the eclipse….Mt Shasta holds the crystal frequency of the Root Chakra/the tone of OM for the planet. The OM symbol is in the center of my labyrinth.

At the peak of the Moon covering the Sun there was a young high school senior walking the journey into and out of the labyrinth…..powerful time for all!

Have to run now but I will write more in a day or so…..time disappears even more than usual.  Blessings to all this day!
