As the Phoenix rises from the ashes of fire the New Conscious Human rises through Alchemy to Transform Life

Shedding the False Self to find truth within the illusion of today’s world can be tough.  Personal life, business, career, relationships, finances, environment, creativity, spiritual seeking, religion, compassion, dominance, empathy and hate are all influenced by the lack of transparency and illusion we and others create for protection.

Yet there is one search for truth that may be the bedrock of our sanity, individually and as a humanity. It is the aeons old ‘Search for the True Self’. For I believe it is only through the finding and understanding of our own true self that the decisions made in life (both important and small) will be far more beneficial to the greater good on all.

Who Am I? Part 1 Now this may seem presumptuous to some, yet sit back for a moment and check in with your life thus far. Ponder the moments when life seemed to be true and real and then ponder those times when all was falling apart…….where was truth of self and actions and where was deception playing out!

Knowing the False Self! Part 2

We all know people who believe they are defined by their $$$ and how many material possessions are owned. Often there is envy felt at why they have so much and we or others don’t. There are also those who believe bullying, violence and taking from others makes them powerful. And then there is the vast majority of people living each day hoping, struggling, pushing and working to ‘just get by’.

Astrology and Teachers Part 3In all where is contentment, joy, happiness, peace of mind and love of self and others? If all outer world trappings disappeared Who would you be? This is the question and search as old as people have lived.

My life has always been the search. My work has always been part of the search, even when I wasn’t consciously searching.

If you are searching for some answers and directions, here are three short audio pieces on questions, ideas, tools and perspectives to start with.

This is the beginning of a series to assist along the way. My background, education and experiences over so many years have honed me to live and hopefully assist others during these interesting and challenging times…….To learn more about Ophelia, her work and art visit

It appears the long wait is over. It is hard to believe my last real posting was two months ago…..it has been a time of much shifting, change, challenge, greatness love and loss. And I am not alone. Virtually everyone I know or come in contact with is going through this “void” yet in the long run (as blurred as all may appear) it is and will be a good thing.

Last week a dear friend loaned me a book and strongly suggested I take heed of the first chapter. This book was originally printed in 1961 and the copy I had was the seventh printing – 2002 “The Law and the Promise” by Neville. I have read the first chapter twice and completed the whole book once. I obviously needed a good reminder in creating new life paths!

If you experienced childhood and growing up like most of us, using and believing in our imagination was totally frowned upon, discouraged or downright outlawed. A child’s “make-believe” world was just that and could not possibly become anything productive, secure – financially or socially, acceptable or logical. The creative, make-believe world was one for the non-educated, losers, trouble-makers and eccentrics. And thus most of the education systems in the world “taught it (imagination) out of the child’s mind.”  

The entire message within Neville’s book is about how to use, cultivate and hone our Imagination to create the world we want or desire around us. One challenge I had in reading it was the language Neville used, the language “appropriate” for the 1960s. His constant use of the word “Man” when referring to both men, women (seldom even mentioned) and humanity. Even though I completely understood what he meant a wave of discomfort came over me and the little inner voice started saying, sometimes angrily “what about women!” “what about the world! “do only men count!” This showed me how deep some social conditioning can still reach.

Yet, of course back in the 60’s, which was not so long ago, this was the reality in most parts of the world, even the civilized world. Women have been “allowed to vote” in many parts of the world since the late 1800s yet the image of “a woman’s place is in the home, only to serve husband and raising of children” was strongly portrayed in many television programs of the 50s, 60s and even into the 70s.

With the cultural and social movements throughout the 80s and 90s and into this new millennium the imaging of women in the world of business, creative arts, science, medicine, law and child-rearing has changed yet not everywhere…..thus there is more “imagining to do here!”

Neville states the key and secret to changing your reality is Self-abandonment! “You must abandon yourself mentally to your WISH FULFILLED in your love of that state, and in doing so, LIVE IN THE NEW STATE and no more in the old state. You can’t commit yourself to what you do not love, so the secret of self-commission is FAITH – plus LOVE.” In FEELING the wish fulfilled it must become a reality because imaging creates reality.

Another key that Neville mentioned of importance was to “re-imagine the past or past outcomes to recurring situations with an outcome that is of a higher, better or the best desired, to also feel and live with that scenario until it is totally real within as this will be the foundation for the new future outcome of the recurring situation. In other words “re-imagining the past can/will change the future.”

A possible example of this could be having a bad or challenging parent relationship which appears to have some genetic or heritage patterns. You re-imagine the best or most desired, even fairytale relationship, feel and live what it was/could have been, feel love for yourself and others. This may take some time, patience, forgiveness and work. Now when the similar relationship is in your life (say father/son or mother/daughter) be observant of subtle or not so subtle changes in interactions or emotions. Perhaps the old buttons are not being pushed quite so much or at all or you are not attracting people who create the similar stresses. It is at least worth a try!

This has taken me back into review of my life and most specifically all I have created and done in the past 13 years (since 2000) and how I would like to reinvent, enhance and recreate myself in the wonderful new paradigm we are in now. In reviewing I found that indeed ” my creative imagination, feeling and living in it” before any manifestation happened was and still is the flow. Most especially when I followed my heart and intuition. This also played/plays out when imagining from fear, loss and lack that were separate from my great learning journey of how the unseen world of dimensions manifest.

There are many examples of people with amazing imaginations revealed through all forms of The Arts as well as every other fields of business, health, science, technology and so forth. Our world is being taken to new galactic heights. There are and have always been the pioneers who open doors of possibilities yet to make real the Imagined it takes many, many, many more to use their gifts of imagining to participate in the creatitive manifestation for the new Reality.

Now it is time for a new imagining to be in synchronicity with the new paradigm of unity, collaboration and cooperation in melding and honoring the male and female, feminine and masculine and the balancing of opposites within and around each one of us.

The creative visions of imagination are for everyone to access, to live from and be in love with. Imagining the highest Reality desired for it to be Created.

It is Nice to be Recognized  – Do you know how you touch other people’s lives? Most of the time we have no idea. Yet when we are gifted with a view into how most often we are surprised.

It is always nice to be recognized for who we are, what we do and how we touch others. I would like to share some of my friends with you. For more information on me, my consultations, creations and products and past work visit www.earthspiritjourneys.com

On Friday night I danced Flamenco (my style) accompanied by Michael Olsen, a wonderful flamenco guitarist.  I was fulfilling a vision to publicly dance again and now am looking forward to do it again if the opportunity arises.

In other words…it is my time to present myself to the larger world, as desired be my heart and soul. (Confirmation is always a key to the next push!)

Women’s Mystic Journeys to Becoming.

Here is video Part 3 in a new series of stories being produced by Andree Morgana of The Hawahwatha Institute.

The full interview can been seen in Parts at Earth Spirit Journeys You Tube Channel.    Part 1

The Journey of Becoming is not just about women and cannot happen with only women interacting. Men are doing the journey and are integral to the balance of showing the progress of evolving consciousness. We need each other to help along the way and most especially to show us how far we have come or not in our own journey. We are the measuring sticks for each other, such an important role to play.
