This morning, I ran into one of my friends in our little Spanish town, and we decided to grab a coffee and catch up. I was delighted at how she took an interest in my Om/Aum pendant. She commented on how I seemed to treat my pendant as something rather sacred, and with respect – an interesting observation! She loved the flow of the shapes, and asked if the pendant had any specific meaning.
I had to remove the pendant and study it closely to try and remember what I was taught years ago, in order to give her a brief description to the best of my ability. One by one I tried to connect with each swirl in the design and was surprised that I had remembered quite a lot of what my mentor had taught me. It was a long time ago, when we used the Om/Aum chant in our meditation sessions.
With my pendant on the table I began to explain the meaning of the dot at the top of the symbol, and recalled that this related to the silence after chanting Om/Aum. It represents the Enlightened Self, and is known as the transcendental state of Turiya. Read the rest of this entry »
If you are lucky enough to have a spiritual teacher, you will know that it is an unusual relationship. Nothing else is like it. Yes, the teacher is a human, but the relationship is spiritual, not human. Not when you are the chela*.
Some people love to say they ‘know’ their spiritual teacher, or are close to their teacher, as if that somehow is a badge to claim their progress towards enlightenment. Nothing could be further from the truth, and in fact you can bet that is a sure sign of an overbearing ego.
Surely, you have learned things from amazing people, yet you would not be want to be their friends? You might be eternally grateful for what you learned from them, yet still would not go to lunch with that person. And, if you chose to thank the person for what you learned, I suspect you would never tell the person, “You know, I don’t really even like you, but I did learn something.” Instead, you take the best from that person, and leave the rest.

Dream interpretation has never been a specialty of mine. However, I do feel moved to write about a precognitive dream I had, and successfully acted upon. This dream happened during the recent Mercury retrograde in August this year.
I dreamed that my vehicle barely evaded a rear-end collision with a car in front of me. At the time, I was postponing repairing my vehicle, due to the fact that I had made the transition from working outside the home, to working from home. I am fortunate to live in a location where almost everything I need is within walking distance.
My car’s brakes were almost completely shot to the point where they were metal on metal! The dream’s message was clear: do not be foolish, and do not depend on your luck. “Get the brakes fixed!” the Universe said, in no uncertain terms. Read the rest of this entry »
Many years ago I had the blessed experience to work with a Native American shaman. I had to travel deep into a canyon in Arizona. This particular canyon cannot be accessed without a tribal member as escort. I was picked up in a jeep and whisked off to an area surrounded with red rock cradled in Aspen trees.
The canyon cliffs shot up hundreds of feet into the sky, eagles flew overhead, trees whispered the message of the wind, and streams of clear water bubbled over the river rock.
Amidst the beauty of this place there was also great poverty. Children stood in the streams selling beads and various artifacts made from the surrounding nature. Packs of wild dogs ran wild, seeking food. I had one thing on my mind: enlightenment. Yet, I was disturbed by what I saw around me. Read the rest of this entry »
Those of you that are parents have signed up for a different experience, than those who are not. Just because you are not a parent does not mean that you are not affected, or that you do not have the ability to affect children on this planet.
We are calling all lightworkers to come forward. Each and every one of you play a significant role in the life of children, no matter their age. In the New Earth energy these children are also being challenged by the process of ascension, and making sense of their world.
They exist within the two dimensions of form and formlessness, and they move back and forth between these dimensions quite easily. And depending upon the environment around them on the Earth plane, they may encounter positive or negative experiences as they move through the dimensions of time and space.

The next wave has moved through and is now beginning to settle around you. Structures are beginning to collapse and break down. Structures that lack integrity, honor and justice. So, even though it might look chaotic, trust and know that there is a higher order taking over.
You are needed now. Step into your power as a lightworker, because whether you realize it or not, you are assisting in this new, higher order that is being created.
As the energy on this planet continues this process of transformation you may begin to feel differently in your physical human body. Some of you are experiencing feelings of heaviness, or being in ‘sludge.’
You might teeter totter between that feeling of non-doing and simply wanting to be, with no agenda and a feeling of lightness, as if you are floating freely. It may be difficult to concentrate, whether it’s reading a book or engaging in conversation with others. This lack of focus is simply a symptom that your body is trying to assimilate the new energy that we have brought. Read the rest of this entry »
There is no end to learning for humanity. There is no one, really, who ‘knows it all.’ We are meant to keep on learning; there really is no limit or ceiling on how much there is for us to learn. We are always advancing. This is the whole purpose of our universal lives.
No matter how hard we work in this life, there almost always seems to be something missing… something we tried to reach for, but just seems to be out of our grasp. Maybe we tried a few times, but were disappointed, and eventually gave up. Then maybe we became depressed about this. It is a normal emotional reaction to become depressed, but it really doesn’t do us any good to give in to negative emotion. Read the rest of this entry »
Sitting at a local café, drinking my smoothie, I couldn’t help but overhear a conversation behind me. They were talking loudly and were not really going out of their way to be discreet by any means. The one girl was talking about how her mother had passed. She spoke of chemotherapy and did not want the same ordeal for her friend, who is obviously going through something similar.
She then shared a story of how her aunt called her a few weeks ago and told her about a dream she had. In this dream the aunt was visited by the girl’s departed mother, who told her that if she could do it all over again, she would do two things differently when she was alive. She would not have taken the chemotherapy and she would not have spent so much time in church. Read the rest of this entry »
