Today is the last New Moon of 2016. It is almost the beginning of a new year and the start of a 9 year cycle.
Last night I was drawn to pick up my animal spirit cards. I drew a card for myself. It was the image of the Eagle.
The 13 moon Mayan calendar glyph for today is the Eagle. Blue Spectral Eagle, ruled by the throat charka and guided by vision.
‘Spectral’ signifies tone 11 which creates the space for change.
The Eagle is a powerful totem. The Romans, Greeks, Hittites, Aztecs, Christians, Native Americans and the US founding fathers have all used the Eagle as a symbols of power and strength.
Eagle has the strength to stand on the ground - to be grounded and the power to soar. Gifted with keen eyesight, Eagle can see a long way.
Now is the time to activate your own vision. Look within. Listen to your heart and allow it to lead your way. Reconnect with your spiritual path and push yourself. Reach higher than you thought possible. Spread your wings and rise above your current conflicts. Let go of stagnant habits, patterns and beliefs which do not serve you any longer. Let go of the need for others to do the work and begin to own your power the change the status quo for the greatest good of all. You have the power to create the space for change in your life for the coming year as well as the next 9 years. Visualize what you would like to see for yourself, your country, our Earth.
As you set intentions today for the next phase and phases of your life, allow yourself to soar like the Eagle.
Enter the Eagle of 2017
Happy New energy and pending New Year!
Today I looked up at the sky, let the rain fall on my face and felt so much love and gratitude.
Water flows. Fluid. Sparkling and dancing through rivers, lakes and seas. It also flows though your body. Rivers of blood move through your veins and quench your cells. Our Earth is going through a massive cleansing and healing right now. The water on the planet is no different. The way you think about the water on Mother Earth affects the water in you as well. Your body systems are 70-90% water. When the water is structured with love, joy, peace and gratitude so you become.
Japanese scientist Masuro Emoto did a number of studies and photographed water crystals from all around the world and with different thought and words applied to them. Kind and gentle words produced a more geometric crystalline form in the water.

Healing and charging the water you drink
Hold your hand over a glass or pitcher of clean fresh water.
State to the water
"I love you. Thank you for hydrating me."
Send the water love from your heart center and feel the gratitude flow from you as well.
This simple exercise can turn your water into a healing tonic and help you feel more refreshed and healthy.
As you Become more mindful of the way you are thinking and feeling about all things in your life your awareness and connection to spirit will grow stronger. Love is the greatest healer of all. Love yourself and one another. True healing and change begins with you.
Grateful for the rain,
I have no doubt that the energetic shifting was intense in August. Many people I worked with this month have experienced a variety of Ascension Symptoms as higher frequency energy continues to bombard Earth. For me I experienced a throbbing and fluttering of my Belly (hara), Solar plexus, heart, high heart and throat, random intense headaches and dizziness as old energy moved out and new energy moved in. I wish I could tell you it was getting easier - that we are finished with the cleansing. Ha ha - sorry to say it will keep going. Just continue to give yourself love and nurturing when you need it.
If you are feeling out of sorts come in and get a tune up. Energy work work helps clear out the old...
Here are some tools for this transition.
Essential Oils For:
Anxiety: Vanilla, Lavender, basil, bergamot, rose, camomile, ylang-ylang.
Depression: Bergamot, tuberose, rose, lavender, frankincense, neroli, lemon, sandalwood.
Fatigue: Jasmine, lemon, peppermint, lily of the valley, osmanthus, Hyacinth.
Headache: Lavender, peppermint, inger, eucalyptus, rosemary
Insomnia: Lavender, clary sage, chamomile, basil, vanilla, frankincense.
Stress: Lavender, rose, frankincense, chamomile, vanilla, bergamot, hyacinth, neroli.
Also here is an exercise that helped me a lot when experiencing symptoms. Do it before bed or choose one chakra and visualize the cleansing anytime needed.
Violet Flame Chakra Cleaning
Visualize: The violet fire transmutes old energy and debris into pure energy to be used by your body and energy field. Imagine the violet flame / fire starting in the root chakra of the Earth. Let it spiral counter clockwise upward to your root chakra. As you breathe out see a counter clockwise whirlpool filled with violet fire cleansing each chakra. Let it scrub each chakra just like you might scrub a big bowl. Do this breath 3 times for each chakra.
Sacral (above your pelvic bone - Adrenals)
Hara ( belly button)
Solar (Solar Plexis)
High heart (Thymus gland)
Ascension / Zeal (Base of skull)
Pituitary (Behind eyes - Hypothalamus)
Third Eye (Pineal)
Crown (top of head)
Feel the gratitude the you are clean and clear.
As you change so does the world around you. Keep envisioning the things you want to see in your life as if they are already there. When you feel thankful for those things you wish to create in your life they begin to manifest. Love is the greatest healer of all. Love yourself and one another. True healing and change begins within your heart.
Recreating the World with Love,
"You do not become good by trying to be good, but by finding the goodness that is already within you and allowing that goodness to emerge."
Eckhart Tolle from A New Earth - Awakening To Your Life's Purpose.
I had plenty to read but I found this book discarded at the Maui Airport on my way home. Returning from a family trip for my parents 50th anniversary, I was tired and pensive about all the many agendas and events. Traveling with family - Ohana - as it is called in Hawaii has it's challenges and delights. The most important thing for me to remember and hold is the love we have for one another.
Maui has many delights. Among my favorites - sunrises, sunsets, macadamia nuts and coconut syrup (with macadamia nut pancakes).The world feels like it is going a bit crazy right now. The US is divided politically and friends posting on facebook are happy about the possibility of a woman becoming president but not Hillary and - well I won't mention some of the things being said about Trump. Fear, Anger, Frustration are some of the emotions I am seeing in public forums. Statistically the US is doing better than it ever has so why are people so dis-satisfied?
We are all energetically changing and the status quo is not good enough anymore. The way we do business, the way we think and feel, the way we live is changing. To what exactly?
That is the million dollar question.
You are creating your New Earth and New Reality. If you build it, it will come. Try to let go of the fear and envision what you would like to see. A pristine Earth, abundance for all, good clean food and water, peace, love, joy. These things all begin with you - in your heart and mind. If you allow your goodness - your light - to emerge, the light in others emerges as well.
As you open to your own goodness, look around at others. Open your heart to the goodness they have within. Together we are one. You may not agree with another but is that a reason for anger? When we can see ourselves in others we enter a state of Grace. A peace of mind which allows for love and joy and no judgement. All things are possible when we work together. It takes all of us to change the status quo.
I have faith we are.
Jumping for Joy at New Possibilities,
On this Memorial day of 2016 I celebrate your life. I appreciate you and your courage. It takes courage to be truly who you are. It takes courage to live here on Earth at this great time of transformation. Right now the Earth is being bombarded with higher frequency energy and you are transforming. It may not seem that way but you and the world around you is shifting. On Saturday I went to a memorial for my 21 year old cousin (by marriage, once removed). He passed away in a head on car collision. It was quite a shock to the whole family.
Anytime someone so young dies it is a shock. Mentally I know that he had a divine purpose here but emotionally death is not easy to accept. We have seen a few revolutionaries leave this plane of existence this year and we will see more. They have their purpose as well. I may not understand what that purpose is but I have faith.
Thank you for being a warrior of light on this planet. What Me? A warrior? Yes You! Just by being you and being here, the world around you is transformed. The more you are you, the more you accept others and let them be who they are, the world is transformed. The more you can own your happiness, the more full of love you are the more the world changes into the place you envision. Just for today, let go of fear, anger, worry, anxiety and stress. Be that change you want to see in the world. Just for today.
Honoring champions of love,
This past month I know how you have been run through the spin cycle. The energy of March was enough to turn all of us upside down. April has not been any easier. As of 4/28 we will have six planets in retrograde including the favorite: Mercury. This is a great time for silence, meditation and review. Do not worry if you do not know how to move forward. You do not need to know right now. Stop and Breathe. Allow yourself the space to reflect on all that you have been able to release, accomplish, feel and be. You are perfect exactly where you are right now. Just BE. Taking time to sit with nature and breathe in Earth energy will make these powerful energies easier to handle. Stay gratefully in your body and try to appreciate everything around you. Find joy in the little things. Here is a poem I learned in the 6th grade and it has really stuck with me. Thanks Mr.Cina. I hope you Enjoy.
You are richer today than you were yesterday if you have laughed often, given something, forgiven even more, made a new friend today, or made stepping stones of stumbling-blocks; if you have thought more in terms of “thyself” than of “myself” or if you have succeeded in being cheerful even if you were weary.
You are richer tonight than you were this morning if you have taken time to trace the handiwork of God in the commonplace things of life, or if you have learned to count out things that really do not count, or if you have been a little blinder to the faults of friend or foe.
You are richer if a little child has smiled at you, and a stray dog has licked your hand, or if you have looked for the best in others, and have given others the best in you.
As you become more aware of releasing all that does not serve your greatest good and the greatest good of all, it is easier to become more grateful for the happy things in your life. Joy, love and peace are the highest frequencies on the planet and who doesn't want that? I know I do.
WHAM! March 8 - New moon and Total Solar eclipse at 18 degrees Pisces
BAM! March 20 - Spring Equinox
POW! March 23- Lunar eclipse at 3 degrees Aries/Libra
The energies this month are acting to bubble up old energy that does not serve your greatest good and the greatest good of all. This can be old patterns of behavior inherited from your parents, grandparents, earlier days and even past lives or negatively perceived emotions. This can be processed in 2 ways - like you are IN a pressure cooker or like you are WATCHING the pressure cooker. Allowing these ingrained emotions and patterns to come up for review objectively - feeling, seeing and being aware while not being emotionally involved with help the release process greatly.
I was shopping at Rainbow grocery last week. The parking there is a bit crazy and busy. There is a main lot and also a back lot. I could see upon my approach there was a waiting line outside the main lot so I went around the block to the back. As soon as I turned the corner the car behind me began beeping the horn wildly. I could not move forward because the car ahead was parallel parking SLOWLY. I thought 'wow, that honker is really in a hurry'. I turned the next corner and stopped, put on my signal and waited for someone to pull out of the back lot. The honker rear ended me. At first I felt anger surge through me. I got out of my car to inspect the damage and maybe to yell at the honker. She drove away. I stopped and took a breath.
This split second between me wanting to yell at her and her driving away allowed me to shift my perspective and choose amusement instead of anger. Luckily there was only a tiny scratch on my bumper - no big deal. She was in such a hurry she did not pay attention to what was right in front of her. I do not think she is the only person who has ever done this.
When difficult emotions come crashing in on you
Stop, breathe, listen.
You can do it!
Here is a Chakra clearing exercise to help:
Start with you root chakra. Imagine your breath and white light filling it up. As you breathe out see a counter clockwise whirlpool filled with violet fire cleansing your chakra. The violet fire transmutes the old energy and debris into pure energy to be used by your body and energy field. Do this breath 3 times for each chakra.

High heart (Thymus gland)

Maintaining calm in most storms,
January is nearing the end and I am still decompressing from the intense energy of 2015. The year of the sheep is almost over and the image of the shepherd has come up for me a number of times this month. Christ was known as a shepherd of men. My husband and I also just adopted a little brown German Shepherd mix puppy named Kiki.
A few weeks ago I watched Alex Gibney's documentary which aired on CNN. "Steve Jobs: The Man In The Machine". When talking about the early years of computers, one of the things he said was "We needed a guide to help us navigate this new relationship" meaning the relationship between humans and technology. Steve Jobs was the guy for that. It got me thinking about being a guide for navigating the relationship between us and spirit.
It is easy to be a shepherd or lead and advise others from our own experiences. Hindsight is 20/20 right. But it is much more difficult to shepherd ourselves from the front line.
I believe, that you are uniquely qualified to be your own shepherd. You know your own thoughts, joys, strengths and sorrows. You know when your thoughts are going down the negative thinking rabbit hole and the only one able to stop that is you. As we navigate this new awakening relationship between ourselves and higher dimension, each one of us is responsible for our own spiritual connection. It takes perseverance, dedication and honesty with ourselves. Sometimes it is difficult but it is so rewarding. I know you are up for the challenge and the reward. 2016 will be another year of hard work but good work if you are willing.
Listen to your thoughts and be kind to yourself.
Trust your intuition.
You can do it! As you become your own guide you will also help to guide those in your life who need it. Cheers to working together. Cheers to helping and supporting one another.
Happy December. November flew by and now the holidays are in full swing. I have already received a few holiday cards and indulged at my husband's big family party and it is only the 6th. I was fortunate to spend some time on a lovely island off the coast of Cancun Mexico for my anniversary in November. On the beach one day I was speaking with a woman staying at the same hotel. She was reading a book called 21 days of Gratitude. It was a journal that encourages the reader to write down 3 things they are grateful for each day. I thought 'that sounds great'. I forgot about it until I came home. As I was shopping the day before Thanksgiving I noticed the people around me were frantic and stressed out. Driving crazily, grabbing and pushing. Tis the season to give, receive and indulge. Some find themselves feeling pressure to follow old traditions. Some may feel nostalgia or sadness - missing loved ones and longing for the past. I have been pensive about what the holiday season means to me. Taking stock of the old traditions and really looking at what they mean to me. I keep returning to love and gratitude. I have decided to start a new tradition. I hope you will join me.
Exercise: Daily for 21 days
21 Days of Gratitude
Research shows that you can increase your happiness by writing down 3 things a day for which you are grateful - do this for 21 days in a row to create a habit of happiness and gratitude.
You can use the New Moon energy 12/10 (the last of 2015) to start a wonderful new habit.
A few months ago I was following my own advice and asking my guides for abundance and prosperity. I had been asking daily. I went to a strength training class at the community center at SFGH - it was after the cooking demo. I walked in and different people kept giving me things. Someone offered me a chair. Another person offered me a plate of food. Someone else offered me a towel. I became frustrated and thought 'Gosh, I'm not here to eat or sit, what in the heck is going on?' Then I remembered. I asked for it. Here was the universe giving me prosperity and abundance. It was right in front of me and I almost did not see it. I stood there and laughed out loud.
I advise other people to ask for help all the time. This is a free will world. People will not help unless we ask and guides, Angels and Ascended Masters are not allowed to help us unless we ask. However, we can ask until we are blue in the face but if we are not open to receiving help we sometimes do not even recognize it.
Help can arrive in unusual ways. Sometimes a billboard or street sign can give you a message. Maybe a happy dog on a walk reminds you to lighten up. There are a thousand plus ways you can receive a message if you pay attention. Listen. Listen to the things around you and trust your intuition when you hear, see or feel.
Connecting with your Guides - Invocation
Allow yourself to think of or feel a guide, your community of guides or an energy you wish to connect with. It can be an individual angel, master or guide or a collective energy. You can do this anytime but I find it helpful right before bed so I can receive knowledge and messages in dreamtime.
Simply invite your chosen energy to be present with you.
‘I invite……(my guides)……….. to be present with me, to support, nurture and nourish me, sharing your love, light and wisdom with me. Please help me learn what I need to learn, release what I need to release, and understand what I need to understand, for my greatest good and the greatest good of all. Thank you.’
As Halloween approaches the veil becomes thinner. Now is a good time for memories of ancestors. Look at the family drama and ancestral pain you would like to release from your life. Let it go with love and respect. Embrace, forgive and love all of you - even your dark side. I do. The full super moon in Taurus 10/27/15 will help you do just that. Enjoy.
