Finally I have finished the first part of the journey of Walking for World Peace. What a wonderful experience it has been thus far of meeting and sharing each journey. I find it incredibly satisfying and empowering to what and acknowledge the energetic changes that happen so subtly yet profoundly.

Click on this link to view the first video of Walking for World Peace Labyrinth.

So many beautiful smiles before us…..it would be wonderful to have your smile join the many others!

Sebastopol is the next stop for the Walking for Wold Peace Labyrinth.

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!

What is a Labyrinth

“Your life is a sacred journey. And it is about change, growth, discovery, movement, transformation; continuously expanding your vision of what is possible, stretching your soul, learning to see clearly and deeply, listening to your intuition, taking courageous challenges at every step along the way. You are on the path… exactly where you are meant to be right now… And from here, you can only go forward, shaping your life story into a magnificent tale of triumph, of healing of courage, of beauty, of wisdom, of power, of dignity, and of love.” 
Caroline Adams

We are all on the path… exactly where we need to be. The labyrinth is a model of that path.

A labyrinth is an ancient symbol that relates to wholeness. It combines the imagery of the circle and the spiral into a meandering but purposeful path. The Labyrinth represents a journey to our own center and back again out into the world. Labyrinths have long been used as meditation and prayer tools.

A labyrinth is an archetype with which we can have a direct experience. We can walk it. It is a metaphor for life’s journey. It is a symbol that creates a sacred space and place and takes us out of our ego to “That Which Is Within.”

Labyrinths and mazes have often been confused. When most people hear of a labyrinth they think of a maze. A labyrinth is not a maze. A maze is like a puzzle to be solved. It has twists, turns, and blind alleys. It is a left brain task that requires logical, sequential, analytical activity to find the correct path into the maze and out.

A labyrinth has only one path. It is unicursal. The way in is the way out. There are no blind alleys. The path leads you on a circuitous path to the center and out again.

A labyrinth is a right brain task. It involves intuition, creativity, and imagery. With a maze many choices must be made and an active mind is needed to solve the problem of finding the center. With a labyrinth there is only one choice to be made. The choice is to enter or not. A more passive, receptive mindset is needed. The choice is whether or not to walk a spiritual path.

At its most basic level the labyrinth is a metaphor for the journey to the center of your deepest self and back out into the world with a broadened understanding of who you are.

The colors of the labyrinth represent the Chakra System of the Body:

Red – 1st chakra – Root – beginning, survival, earth grounded

Orange – 2nd chakra – Sacral – reproduction, creativity, unity of male and female energy

Yellow – 3rd chakra – Solar Plexus – emotional balance and well being, gut instincts,

Green – 4th chakra – Heart – Love, compassion, openness, deep healing

Blue – 5th chakra – Throat – Communication, voice, expression

Turquoise – Thyroid – personal power (not shown)

Voilet – 6th  chakra – Third Eye – intuition, psychic abilities, vision

Magenta – 7th chakra – Crown – place of Divine Connection and light

Before entering the labyrinth stand still, take a few deep breathes and clear your mind. The journey to the center is one of acknowledging and releasing something or an issue that is of no good for you now. Maybe a habit, idea, perception, person, etc!

As you slowly walk the paths, clear the mind and focus on the color of the place in your body it represents. Don’t worry about the issue, that part is complete when you have stated it!

Slowly follow the colored paths back and forth in the correct order.

When you arrive at the center, stand still, close your eyes, take a few deep slow breathes in and out, feel the presence of a beam of light coming down from the heavens, through the top of your head, all the way down the body and into the earth. Feel this light beam as a rod of strength, love and peace. Take a few more slowly deep breathes.

Turn in a clockwise direction to begin the walk out following the paths in reverse order. Slowly feel the awareness moving from your head down through each part of the body, each step integrating your energy more fully.

During this time there may be sensations inside you of tingling, rushing energy, heat or cold, visions, thoughts….whatever they are, just let them move – this is the integration of “stuff” being released and the “new” energy balancing itself within.

In your journal make note of any messages, visions, feelings, discomforts you experienced.

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!

The middle of last week I had the strong push to create a new video series on Time Collapsing and the Mayan Calendar. This came out of the discussions on this exact topic during the previous weekend’s retreat.  Losing time is a big issue, no it is a huge issue and one that people do not have any understanding of relative to today.  Taking the journey through time/history allowed for much more clarity and an acceptance, whether understood or not, that is it indeed a reality. Video Part 1 can be seen by clicking on the video image in the list on the right side of this posting.

It was while editing Part 1 that the topics for this posting began showing up. Then in its own time and way pieces of the larger topic began incubating and birthing without my conscious awareness until the flow of information, people, messages and experiences come to me seemingly out of the blue and the topic is revealed. These themes and word kept resurfacing: Time, Space, Fear, Illusion, $$, not enough, spiritual drought, material flooding, virtuous business, spiritual capital, righteousness, thrift and contradictions to name a few. A pretty impressive line-up!

Themes Emerging for this posting:

I received an article by Neale Donald Walsch on Spirit Library June 23 about What we’ve been taught about What God Wants regarding love and money.  The last paragraph touched on the one of the topics – says it all that doing good  or the higher the purpose, the lower the rewards!

The next clue was received a day or so later from Spirit Library directly. It was about their future. After being a wonderful forum for so many very well known Spiritual Teachers and a source of information for so many seekers they realized that there is no money, not to mention profit, in the business of Spiritual Education. Even though, according to marketing sources, this is a huge $$ market.

I know so many individuals who are dedicated and doing powerful spiritual work, changing people’s lives yet in general are in no way compensated appropriately. Some people even get upset if they are expected to pay for this work. Never mind that it is the practitioner’s main work and source of income! The irony of all of this is that when there is a crises in someone’s life more often than not it is the Spiritual teacher, guide, practitioner and medicine person who receives and answers the first calls for help.

Let me clarify, the Spiritual market I am referring to is not connected to ‘any religion’ because the general driving force of religion is power over the people and most usually runs as a non-profit corporate entity where people are encourage to pay for salvation! This may sound pretty cold and hard but when you peel away the emotions, the faith, the actions and promises what is left is the unending requests for money to “save the church” not the people! I learned and saw this quite personally when married to a minister and “served” churches in the deep South and Mid-West.

I believe Mr. Walsch and God felt this was the perfect time to address the inequities of the Spiritual and Corporate worlds!

Next, in one of those accidentally searches I came across  Doing Virtuous Business by Theodore Roosevelt Malloch. It sounded interesting and worth investigating further. After reading the Bio and overview of his book as well as his book titled Thrift – Rebirth of a Forgotten Virtue. Then I read reviews by Steve Forbes, the CEO of Polaroid, a Director of Public Justice and many other high powered executives of big business and government, all espousing how wonderful this idea is and it should be implemented everywhere. I lost interest! More lost words by people who are completely out of touch with 90% of the world. Too many scandals, too many lies, too much greed and too must Virtuous Righteousness in the Name of Spiritual Capital!

Take away everything THEY hold important and what would be left……could they stand on their own two feet without shaking in fear!

And then comes a message about this week’s New Moon and Solar Eclipse with the title Initiation of the Great Renunciation or It is time to Renounce Materialism!  

How is that for Divine Synchronicity!

On the eve of this New Moon and particle Solar Eclipse on Friday, the theme of which is “Initiation of the Great Renunciation”  (Renouncing Materialism). For many readers this will throw you into panic at the possibility of losing everything  you possess and worked for, all the creature comforts, savings and dreams!

The three points mentioned below give an idea of what the Initiation of the Great Renunciation signifies:  

  • The volatility during this Grand Cross cycle instigates the unveiling of new leadership initiatives while continuing to dissolve false societal systems. This includes manipulative corporate structures and their games of monopoly.
  • The light streams of the New Moon Eclipse initiate more tangible preparation of our body to house multidimensional consciousness from the foundation of “physical body” integration.
  • This alignment catalyzes a great wave of assistance from Sirius, considered home to many of Humanity’s greatest teachers. The Sirius system is directly “upstream” from our solar system and within the galactic arm of our Milky Way Galaxy. Sirian light codes envelop our planet to help us advance into the new race genetics.

This means moving beyond the fears and incredible attachment most have to the objects, status, wealth, health and power the “illusion of material safety and security  represents!” To live on earth today there are tangible and monetary needs we all have. The degree, size and purposes of those needs are different for everyone and how the necessary universal flow of needs are given and received each moment are varying and ever changing, as it should be!

What happens when one releases the fears and attachment to material possessions, old corporate and government models and toxic medical practices is the ability to see more clearly the “hold” all these things have on you, the draining effects experienced and the pervasive corruption and deception fed to the masses from times past until this very moment. When the “revolutionary lights go on” the perceived fears and needs disappear almost immediately and thus the need to hold on to the past….this is the beginning of FREEDOM achieved without violence or an insane “defense budget!”

Until next time…..keep clearing and cleaning to Lighten the Load!

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………..
