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……..

Well Dear Readers it has been an eternity since The Muse put in a good days work….not really, it just seems that way!

As so many of you are finding these days your lives just turn and move from “normal” to “oh no, not again changes”, “I didn’t ask for these happenings”, and then the totally unexpected and then back to seeming “normal”. You question your sanity and that of others around you. And then when horoscopes and planetary astrology is checked, it all reveals that exactly what has been going on in your life and others…..”is normal” for the times we are living in………SUCH COMFORTING THOUGHTS!

The Muse has still not fully returned and that is OK I have decided. The only certainty is the uncertainty! You have all no doubt heard, read and unexperienced many of the dynamics of this pivotal 2012 year. There are hundreds on writers and channels delivering messages of varying importance and truth mixed with fiction and superstition. This all leads to a great need for discernment on the part of each person seeking as everyone is at a completely different stage of understanding and evolution on the path.

The last time humanity (if it existed then)  came close to these experiences was back 26,000 years when the last Cycle of Light (feminine) ended and it moved into the 26,000 year Cycle of Darkness (masculine) that is now ending. The only evidence of what it was like are the results we live with now and reflect on as “our human history.” Such are our sobering reflections!  Please know that references here and all other places you read it are not directed to MEN (our current general understanding of masculine) but to the Masculine aspects of humanity in both men and women……this is where a huge part of our responsibility lies. Understanding ourselves.

In these times the unexpected and new is premium for us as part of collective humanity to open up the portals and doorways of New Paradigm Times. So best advice…don’t fight the unusual, unknown and really uncomfortable because there can be great potential lying in wait!

Since “The Muse Left the Building” posting I have traveled many miles for the movement to open doors not known to be present. Visits with special friends and work with many new people in presentations and teaching experiences have gifted me greatly. Again getting back to the very early morning (4AM) sadhana meditations. From Sonora to Mill Valley to Sonora to Geyserville to Mendocino to  Sebastopol to Stockton to Sonora to Mendocino. Soon to return to Geyserville and then to Mt Shasta for the Full Solar Eclipse and then ?????? Let the unknown unfold!

Out of all these places special little happenings would open…to even being asked to Read/Try Out for the Lead in an amazing Theater Play. And then be asked to continue to the next Reading……this is the total unexpected yet oddly enough connected to my knowings that lie deep below surface of the present. Whether I get the part of not… I’m loving the experience and challenge.

By saying Yes to such….the Universe can respond by gifting more openings……….Try It…..You May Like It!!!!!!!!!!!

The Muse has now written far more than expected. Enjoy the photos of varied landscapes from the past weeks.

Blessings and wonderful journeys to All!

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

My grandson Brayden taken by his mother Shannon Gray

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

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

July is hot and filled with travel!

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

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

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

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

Pull It Back to Bring It Forward!

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

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

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

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

This is living in fifth dimension mysticism!

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

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

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

There are so many stories to share!

For miles and miles I watched the road in front of me unfold towards the rising sun of the east, locked in the vacuum of my car and our private world. Before the journey began I had intentions of recording stories and thoughts in all the alone time I would have. I purchased a recorder for that exact purpose and I do have to say it was used, but no where near as much as I thought.

The other company with me on the journey was several tapes of the “morning sadhana chants” I had participated in earlier in the year in Mt Shasta. Starting on December 21 (a year ago today) a small group of us gathered at the Flying Lotus just before 4AM to share in kundalini yoga and the “short Ek Ong Kar” chant – there was nothing short about it…..a full 2 1/2 hours to completion each day for 21 consecutive days As I have mentioned before, this was an amazing experience!

Well this, along with other chants was my company.  And then there were the hours of silence each day.

Are you afraid of silence! I know people who are. There always has to be noise of some sort….radio, TV, kids, talking…..all distracting from what the silence within is requesting. Jessica reminded me of this one day during felting….I was trying to decide on a design and nothing was coming.

“Sit quietly and do Breathe of Fire for a few minutes”.  I sat by the fire, stilled myself and began the breathe and sure enough, after a few minutes I was still inside, my head was clearer and as I looked at the project in front of me an image revealed itself….the answer came in the stillness of the breathe!

And in stillness and silence comes fear!  The drive from Mt Shasta to Bishop was 8 ½ hours.

The next day leaving Bishop, CA on Hwy 395, the road to Hwy 95 and Las Vegas opened that door, the door of fear! Hwy 168, an 89 mile cut across CA and NV, across a mix of mountains and flat expansive plateaus and no one else. In the early morning there was on one on this road….there was nothing else on this road for miles and miles….I didn’t even see any wildlife.

At the beginning of every day’s drive I would say a blessing and request safety and protection for myself, my little girl (car) and all those around me.  As the miles unfolded on this road a sense of vulnerability enveloped everything and in the silence my fears raised. Immediately the music was turned on and up high. I sang along to avoid myself.

Why was I in fear? The thoughts were “I’m alone, no one knows where I am, and will my car be OK!” And then it hit me. In the incredible expansiveness of this land, of its stark beauty perceivably devoid of life……I was completely INSIGNIFICANT! As a grain of sand on a massive beach….if taken away nothing would change, no one would miss “just one grain of sand, one little speck on the expansive landscape!

Is this what all our fears are about, no matter what they are…..of being insignificant…..is this why silence is so scary…….because in silence we do not contribute anything…..except the abundance of our consciousness!

What is in our consciousness?   Only the totality of our soul’s existence….only everything one has ever done, thought, felt, heard, lived….only all memory of one’s universe….only all memory of the universe itself…..only the memory that each one of humanity has and is a fractal of the ONE UNIVERSE and related to each other…..only that one is SIGNIFICANT in our small fraction of life……and this is only revealed when the light of love is turned on!

For those not familiar with fractals…Unlike fragments which are pieces of the puzzle, each one different, yet when placed correctly form a complete picture. A fractal is the complete picture, multiplied and replicated over and over again.  And to go a little further, it could be said that each person and their soul’s existence are a combination of fragments and fractals…….this is for a greater discussion on another road!

(These photos are the driver’s view, not from beauty of form and they cannot capture the real eye and heart view in the moment.)

At the sight of the first car coming towards me the aloneness dissipated. The 89 miles, a mix of narrow winding roads and straight expansive stretches took 2 ½ hours and the sight of Hwy 95 was a relief.  And Hwy 95 is not a highway one you would want to travel at night…it takes you through more desolate, stark landscape…..a long, straight road without services for miles and miles and miles and miles but during the day there is traffic!

Hwy 95 through Nevada to Las Vegas goes through the infamous Area 51 – UFO Country – and I can believe it!

From Stillness to Overload!

In the last posting I took you to Las Vegas and my visit with Sheila Z.  I only touched on the sights I came across in Red Rock Canyon and “on the strip”.

So often we get lost in the our world not seeing much of what else is around, in other words the world portrayed by commercialism, government, media, fear and control.

For several hours I watched so many of the thousands of people walking the strip or sitting behind the slots in incredibly glamorous hotels and casino, appearing to be “devoid of life and soul”…only shells of their potential, not as God’s creation but of man’s de-evolution.

Hypnotized by the lights, colors, activity, constant noise, play of machines and the internal plea “to hit it big and solve all of life’s problems” kept some of these people coming back. Of course, many oame to Vegas for the entertainment, glamour and excitement without being caught in it, yet far too many were and are not so fortunate. And this goes for the other addictions that take over one’s life!

I remember back when Jerame’s and his friend, Jarrod  spent a summer in Bull Head City, NV, just 90+ miles south of Vegas. Jarrod’s grandmother lived there and so these two young men in search of a different adventure headed west by train. Mathew and I visited him for two weeks. We traveled to Sedona and the Grand Canyon and endured the desert sun. The boys got jobs as hotel valets and spent hours running back and forth in and out of the hot sun and cold air conditioning. I remember Jerame commenting one day that he watched people, all types, rich and poor, well and ill…spend hours, all day and night, just sitting in front of these machines, pulling the handles or pushing the buttons to make “the wheels spin” in the hope the right sequences would appear. One day Jerame shared “Sometimes they wouldn’t even leave the machine to go to the bathroom; they peed in the coin cups!”

At our lowest ebbs in life, when life has or is not going well due to conflict, pain, illness, violence, anything or  anyone else, when one allows to submit to their control…life is lost.

On the Road Again….

From Vegas I headed to Kingman and then to Flagstaff, AZ. This would be only a four hour stretch so I thought I would go a couple of hours beyond Flagstaff before stopping. Years ago it was no trouble for me to drive 10-12 hours at a time, and had done so many, many times. But now 8 hours seemed to be my limit!

About an hour out of Flagstaff, my friend Leela called to say hello and chat. And so timely it was! Leela has traveled this road many times and when I told her of my plans she advised me to stay in Flagstaff as the road from there to Albuquerque had only a scattering of stops and hotels. I took her advice!

Some of you may even have heard of Leela Hutchinson. Leela, a gemologist was the first woman to enter and photograph the amazing Crystal Selenite Caves in Southern New Mexico. The Discovery Channel has aired several programs on this incredible place!

Flagstaff, AZ has a small, quaint and artistic downtown. Lots of restaurants and specialty boutiques. While walking I was drawn into Sacred Rites….Therapy Instruments and Monochords. Tibetan prayer flags fluttered in the breeze and ornaments of Buddha, Kwan Yin and other beautiful pieces adorned the window.

Inside there were drums, flutes, gongs and other instruments of all sizes and shapes. Kelly, the owner greeted me. He was playing a monochord and had several on the counter. The beautiful soothing sound of this little instrument was relaxing, especially after so many days on the road.

A monochord is a 12 string instrument, like a flat dulcimer. It is turned to one note, for instance a C, A, D, etc. Each string is tuned to a different tone of that same note. When played or really, strummed, the gentle resonance of the particular note is experienced.

The monochords on display he had commissioned to be made by a local craftsman. The larger lounge chair style I experienced had come from Germany. One side was designed to sound with a padded mallet and on the other side were strings, not unlike a harp. Kelly sat on the floor to the side. I lay on the chair. The sounds from this monochord gentle reverberated though the wood into the body…very subtly at first and slowly strengthening, combined with his soft toning voice….the sounds of healing wafted in the air.  To learn more you can search Monochords on the Internet.

After a good nights sleep I headed further east on Hwy 40 to Albuquerque and the HWY 25 To Santa Fe. This would take me 7 ½ hours!

(Note in this last photo the rainbow energy emerging from the rock cavern)

The journey of retracing steps continues………
