As the World at large honors the Life, Heart, Soul and Essence of a truly amazing man   NELSON MANDELA  – by the end of next week there will be hardly any words left to say or write of his life, the faults he is sure to have had as all of us have, of his courage and patience living within a small room for so long, of his political beliefs, aspirations and achievements in bringing  the huge color division and social sigmas of a Black and White country together. Through pain, strife, anger, hatred, violence, power and greed he gave strength through example to all people whether rich or poor, free or slave.

Now the only course of action for Humanity – US as the people of a profound Earth and the WORLD LEADERS of every country, religion, corporation and  military establishment is to EMULATE THE PATH AND EXAMPLES SET BY NELSON MANDELA, the very things everyone will be praising and remembering. Although it is not only for world leaders to walk in such a way. We should all try to emulate such humility in our own lives thus exampling through the highs of success and the lows of despair.

Talk is cheap, shallow and useless if not backed up by action to raise higher and emulate those who deserve to be in such high regard.

Such an Eulogy would serve as confirmation that Nelson Mandela’s life has truly left a mark of greatness on the lives of all.

WE SHOULD DEMAND NO LESS OF THOSE IN POSITIONS OF LEADERSHIP AND AUTHORITY.  HUMILITY IS POWERFUL!

The Experiment:

After my last posting some of you must have thought I had lost some marbles! Why would she post such a thing! I asked myself the same question after hitting the send button and seeing it online. OMG!!!!

As part of a minor explanation and reasoning:  Recently I have been shown the need to get out of my way, let go of some fixations to open some new doors. I couldn’t quite figure out exactly what this all meant and what the fix was!

So what happens is that, if I pay attention, though a series of odd messages, happenings and meetings all seemingly unrelated I get an idea or theory or topic to follow that gets me out of the way. This was it, plus I needed to pay attention to my health in a different way and subsequently some other pieces have been revealed which are also seemingly unrelated to this topic, yet now I see those directions expanding. All that said I will share what the last two days of experiment have revealed.

This morning I did receive an unexpected email containing a series of messages between other people on this topic and similar concerns. So it is also this prompting me to continue to share.red wine 1 dec 5

bottom 2 photos Dec 6, before/after

I will not be sharing any more photos after today and plan doing experiment for my own understanding unless requested by other readers desiring to follow red wine 2 dec 5outcomes. They can contact me personally)

After the first day the protocol stated was followed very first thing in the morning before any liquids or teeth cleaning.

Day 2 the results got scary because of the increase in “stuff” and additional white bubbles looking like crystals. I will only share one photo as it is pred wine 1 dec 6retty gross.

Day 3 (today) I followed the protocol with a sense of dread wondering if it would reveal a worst scenario. I was surprised there was a marked decrease in   “stuff and bubbles” both in the first sample (before swishing) and the second sample (after swishing).

Obviously I don’t have any way of testing the sample yet my intuitive and unscientific (probably accurate) observations are that the Sesame Oil Pulling has an effect in clearing this up.red wine 2 dec 6

To qualify a little further. In the first post I mentioned doing Oil Pulling in the past to relieve a toothache and gum infection. I was using Coconut Oil at that time. Since using the Sesame Oil I see, feel, sense, know (whatever the right words) is more effective, tastes better and works faster. Follow the links for more information and please do your own research, test this for yourself before calling it bad, good, unproven or conspiracy science.

In my opinion, far too often Science and the need for endless research and proven results is driven by “grant funding stipulations, the fear that if good answers are found someone will be out of work (endless job security) that the $$ trail will stop if good, low-cost, effective solutions are in effect and perhaps most of all hidden agendas will be revealed (resulting in conspiracy theory, discrediting.)

Don’t misunderstand me here, testing and research with integrity are absolutely necessary yet balanced with living logic and intuitive observations to reveal something that is not present or seen yet and allowing for this healthy cycle to flow between the seen and know and unseen and unknown making way for even better abilities for testing and research to occur.

The other day a friend came to visit and we caught up on happenings in our lives during the year between visits.

During the several hours spent together we covered many topics which would be quite normal. You know how it goes, themes just morph from one to another to another and back again and round and round. In the mix I shared of losing weight and now putting on 5lbs, supplements, the need we both have recently of naps in the afternoon as fatigue seems to creep in each day and then she mentioned “have you seen the Red Wine Test!”

We pulled up the website and looked at the video……Chemtrails/Morgellons : Red Wine Test     this one was done by a man in UK.

This is the first I have heard or seen of this and was SHOCKED by the results!  I have always been very skeptical of technologies, pharmaceuticals and the direction Western Medicine has taken the mass of humanity.  Wonder why!

Let me qualify here. I am not a scientist, doctor or similar although I am versed and trained in many alternative and energy medicine practices. I am perhaps more aware than most. I am very intuitive, observant, logical, have a general to above average knowledge of the human body, functions and health issues. I know, feel and sense when something/information is “not quite right, something is out of sync” so to speak. I smell a Rat here!

My friend, on the other hand, is a geologist, as well as being involved with alternative healing, energy and therapeutic medicine and crystals, a researcher at heart. During our friendship we have had some very challenging dialogues because we would end up saying and understanding the same things just coming at them from very different directions. I mention this because of her general knowledge ahead of me on Chemtrail, Disease, Nanotechology and more. I will pay attention to her in other words!

This video played around in my head throughout the night and so upon rising I began an experiment. For several weeks now I have been doing “oil pulling” in order to relieve some gum pain.  My first experience with oil pulling was nearly two years ago. Oil Pulling is a remedy for cleaning out toxins in the mouth found in Ayurveda Medicine which dates back several thousand years. Oils such as Coconut, Almond and Sesame can be used. A tablespoon or so is swished around in the mouth for 15-20 minutes then spat out taking with it toxic and bacteria that has accumulated in the mouth, teeth and gums. I can totally vouch for its results in getting rid of very painful toothache in 2-3 days quite naturally.

The Experiment:   nano 1

First thing (before water, coffee, anything) swish a tablespoon of Red Wine in mouth for 20 seconds. (This is tough first thing in the morning!)

Spit the contents into a clean white bowl. Not too pleasant looking. Wow there was some unusual looking stuff!nano 1a

Next: Swish with Sesame Oil for 15 minutes, cleaned my teeth in the normal way and rinsed well.

Next swished with warm salt water, 3 times and rinsed really well.

Then had ANOTHER TABLESPOON OF RED WINE, swished for 20 seconds and spat into another clean white bowl. The liquid (wine) present was much clearer but there were still odd stuff. With my glasses and a magnifying glass these “things” didn’t look natural. Like fine webs! See for yourself. My camera does not have great zoom but enough to show me weird! An the red dot, I have no idea!nano 2

I plan on doing this routine for three days as I don’t think I can handle red wine before coffee more than that. Want to see if there are any changes, either less or more “stuff”, can the oil pulling make a difference and anything else I can find or intuit.

The research articles by Cliff Carnicom say that these “particles” are parasites and feed off the HOST for energy, proteins, nutrients  and amino acids in order to live. WE – THE HUMAN BODY – IS THE HOST!

A question I ask, if this is so, are they (nano particles) programmed to feed off “not only the normal body functions depleting the body and enhancing risks of illness purposely but also “any healthnano signaturey supplements, foods, etc” of more health conscious, active, no illness prone people……meaning these will help the parasites grow faster?  I don’t know, just thinking out loud!

DO IT YOURSELF………WILL YOU ALSO FIND THESE STRANGE THINGS FROM YOU MOUTH!

I am not looking for challenges from anyone on good or bad science protocol. I want to see how widespread this is and how can we raise the frequency to make them “nul and void!”

The archive to the right says the last posting was in January…where has the time gone and what has happened since then in your life and mine!

eclipse 4For me, I left beautiful and cold Mt Shasta in late January as my bones never seemed to get warm. Headed for Sonora to stay with friends before going to North Hollywood for 10 days to look after another friend’s animals while she traveled to the East Coast.

This was followed by a fun week of travel from Venture to Santa Cruz with a friend visiting from South Carolina. The day she left I headed for the Ojai Valley for what turned out to be a 2 month stay.

Initially I was scheduled to be at the Ojai Foundation for the month of May with the month’s prior filled by the known whys! Nestled in a valley east of Venture, Ojai has become not only a retirement and bedroom community of The Bay Area, it is also known as a spiritual and artistic mecca.

The large and diverse array of creative arts draws people from all over the world year round. The spiritual community is represented by organizations and centers such as The Krotona Theosophical Institute and School started by Helena Blavatsky in the 1920s, whose original mission was and still is to promote freedom of thought, freedom of society and the seeking of Higher Religious Truth.

Other spiritual communities in Ojai are The Krishnamurti Foundation of America, Meditation Mount, the teachings of Annie Besant and Beatrice Wood, the intentional communities of The Ojai Foundation and Elevate, as well as an array of varying religious and spiritual belief communities.

I visited and shared in the experiences of these main organizations through lecture series and events during my time in Ojai.

As the end of March rolled around I was none clearer as to why I was in the Valley. Then as I vowed to leave one night my guidance seemed to yell loudly “stay and be patient”.

Two day later an email from the Ojai Foundation…we have had two unexpected late cancelations in the programare you available and when can you arrive!

My question answered and so I turned up at the Ojai Foundation on April 6, a full month ahead of schedule!

This whole region is rich in history of the Chumash people, the arrival of the Europeans/Spanish and the Catholic Church. Rich as it may be, it is not without great pain, hardship, abuse, violation, greed and power struggles of  cultures and traditions at odds with each other and themselves.

The Ojai Foundation is set on a ridge of 40 areas within Happy Valley. This community was established over thirty years ago and has been serving as an example of intentional and substantial living and governing by the model of Council. I was especially interested in how Council governing worked as an ongoing model.

As is normal with me, full immersion into all areas of daily life was how I would see and feel the experience. Sleeping on the land (once again), participating and holding the space for meditation in the Council House most every morning for the month I was there, tending the shrines and gardens, doing the beauty way along with everyone else there. Assisting others when their work load for turning over spaces was tight whether in housekeeping or kitchen.  As well my physical body got one massive workout. Being on a ridge the areas of flat land are minimal so everywhere one walks, from one place to the next, is either a quarter mile up or down hill and some days the path between the upper land and offices, kitchen, cars was traversed 3,4,5 times…..heart, lungs and muscles not always rejoicing!

I was honored to share and hold space in the two Inipi or Sweat Lodge Ceremonies during my time on the land. Lodges held by humble, honorable and powerful Lodge Elders.

And most especially meeting and getting to know a group of wonderful dedicated and knowledgeable staff, work exchange participants, council members and guests on retreats (both personal and in groups).

It wasn’t until five days into my stay that even an inclining of why I was there and what was to be learn began to be revealed.

Wednesday was the departure morning for a group of ten or so women who had participate in a “Birthing Seminar for Eight Days.” I volunteered to help get the  sleeping domes in the Grove ready for the group arriving the next day….a group of high school seniors participating in a 5-Day Rites of Passage retreat. (For the previous twenty plus years, seniors from varying schools from Santa Monica and other areas would come to the Foundation for such retreats.)

As the simply process of cleaning, sweeping and beautifying each dome took place, from time to time I would sing….singing songs in languages other than English, accompanied by feelings and thoughts that were not mine. In each dome I left sprigs of lavender, rosemary and sage.

For many years in my intuitive and life alchemy work, it has not been uncommon to “act as a medium or go between for spirit world”.

It was in the third dome that I had an understanding come forth. Whoever had been staying in that dome had left a very distinct “imprint” (for lack of any other description at present) of a baby/child. My immediate sense and song that came forth was of “one that had been lost, was going to be lost or represented the woman herself who was lost!” It could have even been all of them!

In these immediate moments I do not analyze, question or judge. It is to just continue with the flow and honoring of the energy present – sing, pray, cry, dance, whatever is the mode of expression for as long as is necessary.

Then as fast as it has shown up it disappears and a sense of peace rests…my job is done!

That day there were a few other happenings and clearings. Later I briefly mentioned what happened in relation to the babies to my friend who had overheard the singing (for privacy I will leave out their names.) “Did you know that is area is known as the Children’s Grove!” Of course I didn’t!

What concerned me most of all and the underlying message to be gained was that the leader/facilitator of the Birthing Retreat probably had no idea that some of her participants were leaving “things behind” that could interfere with the next occupants – high school seniors – the following day.

The veils are becoming non-existent. In the world of the Unseen it is so easy (myself included) to miss, ignore or not pay attention to what is ours or not ours….what is of Light and what is Dark and Disruptive, what needs attention.

 

Please know to acknowledge the latter is not to focus on the negative. Yet to call it for what it is, even honor it for what has been revealed through the experience however NOW it is not required any more and transmutation to a new path/direction/power will be most beneficial for ITS evolution.

 

Some of you may find this approach difficult to accept yet as an example replace the dark and disruptive being with yourself on a very bad day and circumstance. How do you react? What do you want from the person/people involved? What is the real deep issue that no-one understands? Do you just want to be recognized or acknowledged? As the saying goes….negative attention is better than no attention at all….and thus bad behavior (in either world) is one way of getting it!)

 

I will leave you here to ponder these questions and perhaps a revelation or change in perspective will come forth.  If you are interested in an appointment contact me

I will continue the story in the next posting….hope you join me…..promise the wait won’t be long!

Why are they so important!

This pivotal week includes October 28 – Carl Calleman’s  belief of the actual end date of the Mayan Calendar……what will be presented and revealed…..will we change as people…..will time and the world stop……will a star-gate appear……so many unknowns……So Much Mystery……Such Wonder!

All is moving so fast and planning in the old way is pretty much redundant!

I will probably be sharing two or perhaps three blog entries within the next seven days or so. Stay turned…..#1 follows!

Getting IT Right!

“I’ve been on the spiritual path for years. I’ve meditated, gone to
therapy, and attended dozens of workshops, seminars, satsangs, and
retreats. But, I’m still not fundamentally different from when I
started on the path. Sure, I’m more centered, present and calm, but
I’m still challenged by many of the same emotional patterns. I
still struggle with anxiety and self-doubt. I still don’t feel like
I’m living on purpose. I’m still not deeply fulfilled. I’m still not
free.”   
from Integral Enlightenment

The above quote comes from an email I received a few days ago. At first reading my reaction was pretty standard…yes that is true, are we no further along than ten, five, two, one year ago!

Then I started reflecting on the topic of this new blog, how to present it and what was its purpose – and BINGO….It hit me so strongly and has kept being affirmed since them.

WE – SPIRITUAL SEEKERS OF THE PAST DECADES…..WE HAVE NOT FAILED……TO THE CONTRARY…….WE HAVE SUCCEEDED BEYOND MEASURE AND THERE IS EVIDENCE OF THIS EVERYWHERE.

These opinions are but one thread within a huge and complex puzzle of life, society beliefs.

In my humble opinion: The Power holding onto, questioning, resisting and being executioner of planetary and conscious awakening is held within the Walls of the Grand and Elite educational and scientific research universities, think tanks and corporations across the world: Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Duke, Oxford, Cambridge, plus dozens more.

The very intangible things we search for and desire to manifest in and through our lives and the lives of others are the exact same things that are dismissed as invalid and non quantifiable by those mentioned above. Structure, forms, layers and rationalism of the illusive only represent validity. In the follow dialogue some of this discomfort is expressed. Each reader, of course, will have their own opinion….do you believe you have failed or succeeded? I am claiming just how much I have succeeded….and are now motivated to go bigger!

Learning Curve

During the past five weeks I have been participating in a course relating to Awakening the Evolutionary Impulse, Consciousness and Leadership for moving, aligning and creating new pathways for Humanity in these new times.

There is a strong emphasis on meditation and the work of Ken Wilber, Andrew Cohan and other academic spiritual leaders are recognized and focused on. It has been a good experience yet also challenged me by what is included and what I feel is missing.

The strong emphasis is on more accepted spiritual teachings coming from within the masculine, academic, structured, scientifically researched framework and any/most mentions of mystics, mystery and psychic touched topics are often referred to as coming from lower mind and “if that is possible, real or similar dismissals.” It is becoming more prevalent these days that the “experts and authorities” of spiritual evolution are men…..the cutting edge women of the past five to ten years have moved from the limelight and are being replace by men. My concern is that the pendulum is going to swing too far off center once again. Yes there are plenty of women out there presenting their knowledge, often but not always, to women only or primarily.

Let me qualify that statement a bit more. I am not slighting men, in fact I am one of the first to always honor men who are sincerely seeking, it is powerful. In example, I am referring to the medical model of the past, up until the 80s-90s. Male doctors were always the absolute authorities of the female body and reproduction. The power of women to know themselves (our mothers, grandmothers, great grandmothers….. ) was usurped, and in many cases and places, still is so! As we have now moved out of the past 26,000 years of patriarchal energy into an equal measure of matriarchal discovery  the realm of Spiritual Control is the place to continue dominance.

Bridging the chasm means both meeting in the middle of the bridge, sharing equal balance/wisdom/fears/experiences/love/loss/life and then learning to walk off the bridge (to either side) stepping carefully in order for both to get off the bridge safely.    

From reading some of the course forum comments, I have picked up that there are many participants having trouble getting their heads around some of the information and how it is framed. This is naturally to be expected!

From my personal perspective the balance I find missing is of the feminine. Please note I have not used male and female, but masculine and feminine – which each man and woman has within them. Without the infusion of true creation, divine feminine senses and principles (intangible, unreal, mystery if you like) to align and balance the masculine form and structure then the so called Integral Real World models for politics, government, medicine, business, education, ecology, spirituality and consciousness, as suggested by Ken Wilbur (and others) in vast writings are missing links to open and access the new dimensional frequencies of which we have been waiting so long for.

Pulling apart, arguing and dismissing what I have written is fine for there are so many ways to look and describe this topic. Yet to be truly effective and represent integrative awareness it will be necessary for a surrendering of the greatest academic, scientific and intellectual mind fears…....something’s will not, cannot and should not be “proven” as it ends up establishing  limits!

In an audio presentation specially prepared by Ken Wilber for the course, I shuddered when reading and listening to it (at least this is what I think I understood) that one of the Prime Directives of Integral Spirituality and Religion is to break the main tenets of each world religion and belief system down into acceptable Rational descriptions and purposes so ALL can be understood and in turn end all jihads and wars and this will bring peace!  This approach actually scares me hugely!

Perfect Partnerships – This includes Personal Life as well!

(This message was gifted to a powerful leader I am privileged to know.  It also seems perfect for all of us as well in light of the information above!)

High Mind and Alchemical Mystery are to be in balance and resonance of each other …..as the stem of the rose (High Pointed Mind) supports, protects, energizes and conducts the threads of life force and information necessary (and in right measure) for the blossom (Visioned  Outcome) to emerge, grow, focus toward (sun) fully manifest and live and then slowly die/change form in order to make way for the new buds/blossoms (evolution) waiting yet hidden from sight within the protective stem. (Constant change/every new day!)       (New Leadership Paradigm – large and small models alike!)

What I see and feel is when the Partnerships of High Minds of Academia, Science and Intelligence (masculine and feminine) meet, support and blend with Mystery, Mysticism, Creative Divine Essences beyond all forms yet infused with respect, knowing and education (feminine and masculine) – this will be the time of profound new information to be transmitted into the Consciousness of Humanity and Unity will be fulfilled.

There is great power and humility in agreeing to disagree and to listen deeply and respectfully when in great discomfort….merging of mind and heart is the perfect prescription for conscious changing Peace, Awareness, Acceptance and 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!

Summer has arrived in the Northern Hemisphere and the heat with it. In the Southern Hemisphere winter is making itself known as the shortest day of the year is expressed in the late rising and early setting of the sun heralding a long dark night ahead. When I am today the temps are pushing 100 degrees with dry hot air. Such is the welcoming for this powerful Summer Solstice celebration!

In places near and far there are gatherings to celebrate and honor yet another cycle of nature. Tonight, along with a couple of friends, we will gather with others to drum and sing in the pleasant night air. Such will be a finale of sorts to a very powerful weekend retreat and for me the end four weeks of very intense, sometimes challenging, often joyful and definitely self-expanding experiences. And it is because of all this that I have been rather neglectful of postings, in fact, writer’s block was such that my mind could only see a blank page most of the time. Let’s hope this is at an end!

The Earth Spirit Vision Quest Retreat was a wonderful experience for me to once again facilitate. From Friday to Sunday thirteen sojourners –  6 women and 7 men sort the Vision. To have more men than women participating was a profound affirmation and honor. The men were from quite different backgrounds and social standings, as were the women, yet all joined, shared and learned about varying perceptions and science on 5th Dimension Mysticism, space and time collapsing as it relates to everyday life, the meaning and energy changes from walking a labyrinth, new ways of looking at health issues, spirit world, ancient teachings and the personal experience of Sound and Energy Healing. Profound transformations were witnessed and acknowledged in the finality of the Vision Quest. (If you are interested in hosting a retreat weekend please email for more information.)

The week prior, I had spent helping a friend make with hands and feet, a quantity of sacred wool felts. And as I had learned from my previous experience of doing and sharing the work, one can go through a huge gamut of feelings and expressions on all levels while working the wool. Automated processes and industrialization has taken this “gift” out of so much of today’s product productions. Besides creating beautiful textiles, objects, clothing and living commodities, the people of ancient and indigenous cultures knew that personal involvement in the process was as important to the village or family’s health and wealth as the products created. Our per se “modern industrialized and material societies” do not afford that and this is OUR COLLECTIVE LOSS!

(Ice fishing at Castle Lake, CA – June 7, 2011)

As I don’t have and have not had a television for quite a few years, during occasional stays in a hotel or every now and then I look through The Huffington Post online to see if the world is still there and what it is doing!

From this detached place it all pretty much strikes me as the same continuing Soap Opera, just a change of actors and scene settings. The political scene, upcoming election drive, corruption, scandals, financial games large and small, government hiding, war mongering and terrorism threats, continual lack of everything to make life acceptable, violent scenarios and movies foretelling our end have not changed in years and years and years. Do you believe all you see and hear? Can you read between the lines of what is not said and by whom! If you were to go back into the archives of papers and television five year, ten years, twenty even further back, you may be shockingly surprised to see and hear the exact same things happening.

(Making of a sacred drum)

Why! Because so often our own common sense is usurped by our “belief” that those looked up to, in power, more knowledgeable than ourselves and so on would never hurt or deceive the people!

If you claim back yourself as a unique, independent thinking, heart centered spiritual/physical individual your world can change and thus the bigger world for all of us!

Until we meet again………..

Little Brayden William arrived on the Pisces New Moon bringing joy into the hearts of daddy, mummy and all who know him.

For all the children and the children of children, ourselves included…..What sort of world do we want to create and live in from this moment onwards?

My last posting on Courage, Life Force, Vision, Purpose….What is Important! received so much activity it surprised and showed me how important it appears to be for many people…Courage, Vision, Purpose are vital and are a driving force to improve lives. At the time of writing it I had no conscious idea of how the world, collectively and personally would so dramatically be in my face yet it is!

It is hard to believe 10 days have flown by since the lasting posting and all I can say is that the “shake, rattle and roll” of life and the planet are intensely getting our attention. Outpourings of help and prayers of comfort and healing are going out back and forth across lands and seas for the people of Japan, the Ivory Coast, Libya, Yemen, Bahrain, New York bus accident and many others in turmoil and pain.

I have read many of the reports on the earthquake and tsunami searching to see if there were any early warning signs, if Mother Nature did idea give notice of the pending changes she was to express. Nothing has been mentioned which immediately takes me back to the similar event in Indonesia back in December 2004.

In the days following that tsunami much skepticism was revealed from sources all over the world as to whether there had been another action to trigger the event. There were very strong suspicion around secret underground bombing tests being done by the US at Womera Rocket Range in Central Australia. A natural fault line appeared from that point all the way to Indonesia. Threats by HAARP also raised questions. Let’s hope Japan’s tragedy was from Mother Nature’s voice alone!

What do we do when the them could be us or are they already us?

Since the people of Egypt recently and successfully stood and demonstrated in peaceful solidarity, others desiring to express and achieve similar results within their countries, states or government officials are meeting with old and very warn out deliberate and brute force all intended to break the Spirit of the People. No matter whether it be in Madison, WI., Libya or Yemen resolve is in the hearts of the people and holding the highest ideals will surely result in achieving them, the only caveat being it will probably not look like we think!

The human spirit is powerful beyond measure, always has been since the beginning of time and will continue to be so through the evolution of time, space and life.  Oh! how powerful a tiny speck of light can be in the space of utter blackness and as eyes adjust to  see in the blackness, all/any lightness expands and magnifies itself to be Divine Hope and Love.

I repeat What do we do when the them could be us or are they already us?

Find your Blackness and seek their Light then send that Light back into their Blackness….for we are all one in the purest form of consciousness no matter the starkness of  the material world or in the mysterious realms of Ether.

My personal world has been amazing this past week opening up potentials and revealing me to myself as the one I have been seeking for years. It has not been done alone for others mirror and demonstrate that in actions, words and deeds…..my gratitude is profound and now it is to live more fully beyond any fear of old!

Performance Evening in Ashland

Next Friday I will be presenting the Conscious Awakening Theater in Ashland, OR….stepping out to be vulnerably seen by strangers. Yet not alone as I have invited others to share their gifts amidst the unknown. If you happen to be in Ashland on Friday night, come a join us at “Awakening Ecstasy In-Formation…New Twists on Money, Power, Sex and Death”.

It appears that once again the posting is to be short…..to be in reflection and stillness.

Until the next time in Peace and Gratitude

Sides of Freedom

The veils thin as gossamer wings flutter in the breeze. Every now and then catching a glimpse of what I knew yet was not known. Oh how I stood in wait of full revelation and then it came when lest expected, with pretense suspended as butterflies meet in breathe of space, meeting past and future as one, love unnamed and heart filled, all will be as will be. Peace has found its place as was lost so long before.

And the People Speak Once Again!

As the world watches the people of Egypt hold true in peaceful demonstration (thus far), demanding consideration of the higher democratic principles of the heart of the people, all people represented by those who have reached the end of the proverbial rope of world governmental abuse elitism, the epitome of the complex “good old boy networks”. The Cradle of Civilization, such a region (not just Egypt) so very long ago before written time can remember, was lush, fertile, productive, creative and brilliant, capable of accomplishments in light, movement and sound still only dreamed of, even by the military. The soils of so many thousands of miles have soaked in lost blood, enough to fill oceans;  and the heart and soul of  billions have left us with marvels and miracles from skies to stone and stories incomprehensibly to the modern mind. Always before Provocation there is Peace. Will it be these people of ancient memory, surrounded by others at war with hate and intolerance, (referring to Israel, Palestine, Iran, Iraq and stretching to India and Pakistan) the raping of people and lands for the greed of resources, the deliberate destruction of his/her stories (history) from the beginning of our time of memory (5000, 10000, 20000 + years old)  in order to stop the people (the manifestation of collective soul creation) from knowing all universal truth of life. I believe it is safe to say, so very many of us from all over the world are and have deep remembering of time before time, heaven before earth, wisdom before science. Remembering creating with light and sound that is still unknown, yet also watching, fearing, challenging and finally being destroyed in chamber experiments using the abusive side of those same light and sound forces. Our modern technology is walking that same fine line and thankfully those same abuses are being glimpsed more and more as the veils flutter open. The people of Egypt are standing  physically for all to see. The surging manifestation of waters of Australia (the ancient Aboriginal Downunder) pulling into a vortex of cyclonic force the lost and chaotic emotions of the world held in the atmosphere, to be dumped, washed and finally filtered in Mother Earth for nurturing and  rebirth. You can take this metaphorically or literally, it is up to you. Several years ago when standing on a large dried up arroyo or river bed in New Mexico, I received this message and vision with it “When consciousness shifts the waters will flow”. I see this as a multilayer answer with literalism constantly changing. If we choose the rest of us can now stand in higher consciousness and awareness, in peaceful expression of the highest democratic principles of the heart of all people, regardless of religion, creed, belief, color, age, sex, ethnicity, social and economic standing….to hold the recreation and revolution of the ever present and moving NOW with the highest principles of life and heart desired by the individual and collective person/soul.

The Miraculous Healing Burn

This is one of a series of stories on varying ways Spirit reveals its presence, purpose and potential, whether that be in physical healing or emotional awareness. Somethings cannot be denied.

On Monday morning my phone rang. The young woman on the other end was definitely upset and in pain. “What’s wrong Kristine? Through the tears she told me of her accident the previous evening. “I was smoking a turkey and I guess I wasn’t paying attention when opening the door of the smoker. It just exploded on my hand. I now have second and third degree burns on my left hand, up to above the wrist. It is so painful, can you help me?” “Of course I will, though I’m not sure how I can help. I’ll meet you at the office in half an hour!” Kristine’s hand was covered with what the hospital had provided the evening before. She had been given Demerol for the pain. The plastic surgeon who had looked at her hand told her “ the pain will continue, take the antibiotics to stop any infection, you will have to wait four to six weeks for the swelling to go down before doing any skin grafts and there will probably be scaring!” I took into an office in the wellness center we were both affiliated with. She sat on a upright chair and I began evaluating the energy of the hand and back. I started doing “my magic” as I lightly call it.  Another one of my students and co-worker, Sarah arrived to observe our work. As I became involved more in Kristine’s energy, impressions and messages began to reveal themselves. From the left side of her back I picked up the energy of a male spirit attached to her. There were also a lot of father issues present that had not been resolved. About ten minutes into the work the pain within the burn began to increase. Kristine was really crying and didn’t know how much she could take. At that point I directed Sarah to get on the floor, hold her feet and breathe in order to act as a ground rod for our friend. Within a few minutes the three of us were working in unison, breathing and shifting pain energy fraction by fraction. Then as I started to pickup more old, stuck stuff in her spin, the pain hit a crescendo and in one massive breath exhalation the pain exited down Kristine’s arm, though her fingers and out. It was amazing to watch. Simultaneously, as the pain exited, toxic fluids within the burn bubbled to the surface of the skin. What I haven’t shared so far is that there was little to no skin left on her fingers, in parts the bones were exposed – it was gross to say the least! Kristine requested a tissue. She began dabbing the toxic fluids coming out of the burn. “No don’t do that, it will hurt!”  She replied “There is no more pain, it has completely gone, and this is amazing!” I kept working on her hand, and Sarah was still acting as her grounding rod. Toxic fluids continued to rise to the surface and Kristine continued to clean them up.  When I knew she was in a better place emotionally I mentioned the male energy I had picked up on earlier. She just looked at me, stunned. (Up until that moment I had no idea of her past.) “This energy has been with you a long time and is asking to be released. You both have to move on to be able to evolve and grow further. Does this message make any sense to you?” She was silent with tears running down her cheeks. “Yes, that was probably my husband, he was killed in a motorcycle accident ten years ago and I have never really wanted to loose him. I was angry he left me!”  Over the years, Kristine had been a dare devil, always pushing the envelope of actions to prove something, to show he father she was worthy. She mentioned she believed her father really wanted her to be a boy; therefore she grew up being a tomboy. In the moments Kristine was sharing all these revelations, her energy fields kept shifting to the point of about thirty minutes after starting to work with her, all three of us observed new translucent layers of skin growing back. This was truly amazing! In total I worked with Kristine for about thirty minutes that day. For the next four days I did energy work with her for about fifteen minutes at a time. On Friday her father took her to see the plastic surgeon. To say the least he was surprised at the amount of healing already taking place. “What have you been doing? The healing process is two to three weeks ahead of schedule.” he asked. “My friend has been doing energy work with me each day. I have more no pain at all!” For the next four weeks we continued doing the work each day. At each doctor’s visit, there was more and more surprise.  After four weeks the progress was remarkable. When I finally stopped working with Kristine, her pain had never returned, there was no infection at all and there was no evidence of scared skin. I mentioned I would like to share this experience with her doctor and father, but neither was interested in speaking or learning from me. Her father only chastised “you should have taken pictures!” An amusing side note to this whole experience was the fact that Kristine’s father was a retired orthopedic surgeon. One would have thought his curiosity could possibly have been peeked! Upon reflection: If at the beginning I had had any idea of how this whole situation would play out, I definitely would have taken pictures. But each day was so special in the results that none of us ever really thought about it until the very end. This is often how Spirit wants things to work. What I learned from this experience: 1. Injury and illness can be traced back to old emotional and often spirit related causes, albeit difficult to find. 2. Through simple energy and breath work, huge amounts of pain, memory and stuff can be transmuted. 3. The energetic threads holding the spirit realm to the earthly plane are real, powerful in both positive and negative possibilities and it is our choice in how to play it through. 4. When physical healing happens through these types of processes, the effects reach out far beyond the individual in question, facilitating healing energy to resonate through the webs connecting all persons and dimensions holding a piece of memory within the particular life scenario.

You may have all noticed how fast things are happening and showing up around you in the past week or so. This last week has been exceptional!

There is not really even time to think and process the information set forth, it is to trust the inner guidance and act accordingly, even and especially when it doesn’t make sense or is challenging the strength of ALL your safety nets.

Information downloads having been coming to me fast and furiously, with a strong general title of 5th Dimension Mysticism. In my own private writings over the past months I have been learning more of what this means. Recent travels reinforced the fact that we, as humanity, have been slowly in preparation process for this exact change over the past 10 – 15 years. We were taking tiny quiet steps to get use to the feel and now it and we are there/here.

For those who have kept journals during these past years, you may find it interesting to reread very early entries, moving forward in time to see if you can spot an unfolding theme. In this blog and in the days to come I will be sharing more of my stories preparing and awakening myself and those involved (if they chose) to the new dimensional wonders becoming the norm!

In your wanderings around various and multiple websites such as Spirit Library <updates@spiritlibrary.com> ,  and Steve Rother http://www.lightworker.com The New Body Electrics: The Physical Electrical Evolution

(of course there are plenty, plenty of others) there are postings and writings giving so many personal perspectives and messages from sources here and above and below on unfolding earth experiences. In all your discovering, take the information right for you in the moment, use it, grow with it and be open to what’s next.

The New Body Electrics piece is a confirmation of several experiences I have had in being “recalibrated to the new frequencies.” I have written about them in past blog entries so for those who have missed them and are intereste d to read more, click on the blog sidebar Pages: Health and Wellness/Recalibration

Over the n ext days and weeks of blog postings I will share many quite different stories, some from nearly ten years ago. At the time the experiences were profound and taught me a great deal. Now, in hindsight when reviewing and remembering, I am seeing patterns, steps and the early threads woven as foundations of seeing through the veils, now thin as gossamer wings. I will post these new stories under PAGES on the main page. In this posting there will be three pieces on Baby, Memories and Family. They are quite different from each other yet very associated. Remembering these was much of why I needed to clear some of my family issues before my grandson is born.

What is 5th Dimension Mysticism?

It may sound like a new catch phrase and concept yet in research over the past months I have come across writings from Rudolph Steiner in the 20s, Edgar Cayce, numerous Ascended Masters and an interview with Ruth Dahlen: Mysticism and/or Reality….”In March 1968 Sweden’s Radio-TV introduced Mrs. Ruth Dahlen to the Scandinavian public as the “mystic of Vallingby.”  ….continued. (This was a really good piece!)

My brief simple description goes something like this:

The past thousands of years have been in the earth bound 3rd dimension…what you see is what you get; cavemen, lords and surfs, patriarchal control and power, winner through conflict solves all problems and has authority. Through these times, (refer to the steps of a nine layer of a Mayan temple) eras have been shrinking from millions of years to the last level, a 20 day cycle. Interspersed throughout time there have been glimmers of artistic, literary and cultural renaissance, invention and industrialization, fragile peace only to be broken by massive oppression. Humanity lived in the physical body and in physical world! This translates to the 1st (root), 2nd (sacrel) and 3rd (solar plexus) chakras driving life forward.

Then in the 60s, 70s and 80s we searched for something higher, clearer, and purer. The advent of Gurus for the everyday person was real. The more Love and Flower Power pushed, the more Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia became places and examples of hate, abuse, intolerance and death. During these times many were trying to find and walk in the 4th dimension, the place higher than physical earth. Translating to the 5th (throat), 6th (third eye) and 7th (crown) chakras. (I’ll get to the heart in a minute)

Then in 1987, the Harmonic Convergence and a shift happened (research Mayan Calendar, Jose Aguelles). A planetary, energetic, vibration, consciousness shift started the ball not to be stopped!  You and I have been plodding along through this for all these years and most of the time with no clarity or understanding, just a deep driving faith. Many a time it felt like the threat of personal insanity, seeking so disparately for what no one could see or believed was possible. Church, governments, institutions, science and business slammed doors and opened mental wards and prisons for troublemakers who challenged the safe boxed life.  How many times did you say or hear others saying “oh I don’t want to live in the world, I want to be spiritual, enlightened, pure, a pillar of light, a lightworker, etc.” This real world is a hard place to live in!

The 90s, into Year 2000 to now, the surge ahead kept growing. Science and quantum physics found that not seeing something does not mean it’s not there! Medicine found and admitted healing can come through hands, mind and heart; sound can heal and destroy. All over the world, governments, military, science and business were and are finding their hidden agendas, deceptions, lies and greed are being revealed through and by the transparency of searching  higher consciousness by the ever increasing number of individuals seeking exactly that within themselves, proving one person can make a difference.

During the past ten years massive amounts of diverse information from Ascended Masters, gurus, teachers, ancient cultures and spirit realms have been presented for us to process and discern what is truth, truths that seem to keep changing. In the past five years I have seen a coalescing, melding, molding, simplicity and authenticity different from the past which appears to be anchoring us to a new place – the 5th Dimension.

And this anchoring happens at the heart, the human heart and the sacred chamber behind the heart. Here is an image of what I see happening: The earth energy rod of the three lower physical chakras has grown a grounding plug at the top of the solar plexus. The higher three spiritual chakras have done the same from the heavens down, passing through the throat and the thymus to the top of the heart.

Living in the 5th Dimension is about plugging the lower and upper chakras together at the Sacred Heart, thus Igniting and Awakening the Ecstasy our True Heart and Soul have been seeking for eons of time. This is still all new, we are learning and feeling our way through the unfamiliar. It is a real merging of the past, reaching out to the future unknown and acting to create the flowing now and on and on.

Opening the blinds of the hotel room in Flagstaff, AZ revealed a beautifully sunny but cold morning for the drive to Santa Fe. After packing the overnight stuff back in the car I checked the engine fluids…oil was OK, coolant need topping up, which was duly done. One quick return to the room, wash hands and return to the car…..to find something leaking from the engine…had to be the coolant. First stop of the day was the auto parts store for something to seal the leak. That done with the help of a salesman, a prayer of “oh please keep us both safe and in working order” and we headed for Hwy 40 to Albuquerque and then Hwy 25 to Santa Fe.

As the miles unfolded the scenery changed from forest covered mountains to bare hills, desert flatlands and then New Mexico’s moon-like landscape.

For anyone who has traveled the highways and byways of this country in any direction can’t help but notice that far too many towns and cities have lost their personality or signature….driving through main streets, neighborhoods, shopping areas, business centers they all start to look the same…..the same or similar planning, stores, name brands, big boxes, restaurants…..some “old downtowns”, especially those relying on the status of tourist or art destination are small, quaint, individual but not that many. After miles of roads, farmlands, prairies, grain elevators and tiny, almost forgotten towns in the middle of CO, KS, NE, UT, NV, they all look the same which I find to be quite sad for travelers and residents alike.

On my first visit to Santa Fe I arrived from the East in late 2006, from Washington D.C. area. This time arrival was from the West. The first visit of living and working there lasted about 14 months; this one would be four nights or so. Northern New Mexico around Santa Fe and Taos are gems of beauty and interest. I love the mix of Native American, Adobe and Spanish architecture, culture and food. It is in everything and you know you are in another world experience. This area is old. The Taos Pueblo is the oldest continually inhabited community in the country, possibly a thousand years or more; first Spanish missions date back to around 1613, and then White/European settlers came after that. History has dictated these three cultures to be at odds with each other and there are still separations unfortunately. Invasion, retaliation, genocide, conversion, intolerance, tolerance, acceptance, and honoring have played and shaped the people, art, food, dress and tourist economy.

My visit was to reconnect and spend time with friends, to meet others I had heard of through mutual friends and finally put faces and voices together, share stories and learn, visits to several very special galleries, meet artist and art in presence, experience my more expanded Self in a former familiar setting, and be grateful and blessed by all.

This land is the high desert. It is dry, rocky, eerie at times, UFO visited mesas, burial grounds of ancient wanders and warriors. Hot in summer, cold winters. And this land is and has been corrupted by the worst that science can dream up and test. In the hidden labs and dugout mountain range of Los Alomos, only 25+ miles from Santa Fe, science boasts of imagining, building and dropping the Atom Bomb, of secret (to this day) genetic cloning research, of alien exploration and even possibly creation, of barbaric mind control and manipulations (like the Philadelphia Experience) and the development of germ warfare for eventual population control. In Southern New Mexico underground testing of warheads and nuclear bombs have been commonplace, as well as the dumping of such waste!

Why this ancient land has felt so much and still speaks of power, beauty and forgiveness astounds me, yet it does! The land always spoke to me in so many ways… I used to love walking the canyons and arroyos of rocks, red dust and sage brush. Sometimes ancient messengers were all around me, guiding, revealing and sharing wisdoms.  One day I was standing on the edge of a large and long dry arroyo (gully). The peace disturbed only the whisper of wind,  “what do you have to tell me today?” run through my mind…

A voice, yet not a voice, a feeling presence enveloped me,

When consciousness shifts the waters will flow!”

And as these words formed within, an energetic picture was revealed.

Clear waters flowing deep under the burnt ground of the arroyo, pushing up and out through tiny cracks.

It was not just about where I was standing. This was a message about US as Humanity. You see, the Element of Water is associated with Consciousness and Emotions…the very beginning fabric of life and manifestation.  When We, individually and collectively change and grow life all around us does the same. This message was received in 2007.  Now as 2011 waits for the door to open, to reveal in time just how far our Consciousness and Awakening have come!

The road trip out of Santa Fe to Kansas City started in anticipation of another snow storm….stuck on a remote highway in swirling snow storms, fridge temperatures and endless miles ahead is not something I wanted to test and so this timing departure blessed me with beautiful clear blue skies, high 40s and smooth sailing for the 750+ miles across the central plains.  Pretty much I was following the routes known as Hwy 66 (and as the old song goes “getting your kicks on Hwy 66”….and the pioneering Santa Fe Trail ending in Boonville, Missouri.

A mid point on this route is the real Dodge City, KS, the cowboy whistlestop so many of us remember from the early days of television and kids westerns like Hopalong Cassidy, Wyatt Earp and Gunsmoke. There is a small area on the east end of Dodge City with familiar facades of the original saloon, general store, bank, church, and the jail, along with souvenir shops, art and clothes.

Eventually the endless miles did end at the home of my son Jerame and his fiancé, Kate. Since arriving the days have been filled with celebrations of Christmas, Birthdays, coming New Year and doing energy and sound healing sessions with the families, of retracing, shifting and dissolving threads of past lineage and experience memories to clear the way for entry into our new times. More below…….

A month ago today I was standing on the cliff edge at Big Sur, CA and received the profound message to retrace the steps of the past and return to Florida from the birth of my grandson. I am at the mid-point so to speak, both in time and in location. Although not the exact geographical center of the country, it is the mid-point “big city” east/west and north/south. One city for two states, Missouri and Kansas! As Jerame has lived here for quite a few years, both before and after graduating UMKC, visits have been normal. I hadn’t paid attention to its significance in repeating pattern until now.

My first visit to KC was in 1987 for computer training with TWA. Back then I designed and often led specialty tours to Orient, South Pacific and all of Central America.  In 1996 we moved to Marshall, MO (83 miles east of KC). My husband, Tim, took a position as Minister for a congregation in the town. Jerame’s years at UMKC and buying a home continue to draw me back to this midpoint. None of this I ever anticipated, way back when!

Coming Full Circle – The clues appearing in people’s lives!

Yesterday I received an unexpected call from Lori after many months of no contact. This is not really so unusual either, it has been the pattern for us both since I departed Florida in 2004. Lori was one of my Reiki students back then. About Jerame’s age, we have always been friends especially since our profound shared experience of finding a dead man one night. (Part 1 of “A Trip for Chocolate”)

During her call she talked about how her life is coming full circle and now realizes the importance of all the previous years of work and contradictions between the real everyday life and the striving to be an enlightened spiritual being desiring, desperately sometimes, to not be here. I am sure many of you can identify with these feelings.

Lori’s calls in the past have always come as affirmations of what was happening or what I happened to be writing about on that particular day. Yesterday was no different. My first question to her, asked with joy and laughter attached was “what message do you have today?” As she spoke of her life, relationships and work the theme became apparent coming full circle, retracing steps and bringing her/the world into balance. I started to note some of her phrases; they were perfect descriptions of the realizations:

Balance of the world is so important

Not interested in collecting things but rather having experiences

Bring back enlightenment (leaving superficial rhetoric behind)

Rekindle remembrance fires

Not want to be stagnant

Spiritual and physical balance

To be in the NOW

We talked about being stagnant verses continuing to take tiny, small, ever growing steps. My remark of feeling stagnant, uncreative, even loss of purpose brought a great burst of laughter to the surface;

“If you look in Webster’s under Stagnant, nothing about you will be in the description…..stagnant is to Settle for exactly the same as always has been…same town, house, job, interests, stuff, patterns…NEVER changing anything……You only Settle for a moment in time and experience that!

Lori was right about it all. Her revised views of all the past circling to meet her evolved self, what stagnation is and is not, what is important to her to bring joy, peace, beauty and romance back and it all begins, ends and is realized FROM WITHIN.

As with al l my stories and ramblings, they are to perhaps help the reader to review their own lives, why they have been drawn to it, is it relative to something in the NOW in their life! We are preparing for another completely new year, unlike any other in history.

I leave you with a profound verse to herald in 2011 and the purest expression of Coming Full Circle as the line is crossed to begin the Paradigm of 26,000 years of LIGHT.

Without the Dark one cannot see the power of the Light

Without Violence one cannot know Peace is the answer

Without Hate one cannot know Compassion

Without Adversity one cannot learn Respect

Without Power one cannot understand Surrender

Without Greed one cannot learn Generosity

Without Possessions one learns Freedom

Without Light there is no Love
