New Year, New You – Sacred Code of Loving in the New World Cycle


Sunrise 12/21/12 Bimini

As 2012 comes to an end and we are at the threshold of 2013’s doorway, the spirit of In Lak’ech Ala K’in ~ I am another Yourself, You are another Myself, or simply put: I am you, and you are me ~ becomes more prevalent in how we consciously live our lives with this understanding integrated into every choice we make. It is about becoming one with all and realizing how every action we take affects our life in the widest sense. This sacred code of living is one with respect for all life and out of living and giving from our hearts.

In Lak’ech Ala K’in mirrors the essence of other beautiful greetings such as Namaste for East India, Wiracocha for the Inca, and Mitakuye Oyasin for the Lakota. The ancient cultures all have their own way to express the same Universal language of love and demonstrates the unification of all belief systems at the heart core.

The 3 Incan Laws of Munay, Llankay, and Yachay also hold sacred principles that if lived by, help to create a world of peace, balance, joy, beauty, grace and harmony for our New Earth experience.

We can learn much by remembering our ancient history and learn to integrate and anchor the true meanings in new ways.

To return back to the essence of In Lak’ech, when we walk in the spirit of this energy, we come to see each other, the trees, flowers, and plants, the sky and the ocean, the animals, and the stars, in the image of ourselves. By greeting and thanking each sunrise and sunset with this understanding, each and every day you experience in togetherness becomes sacred. And when you give in this spirit, you receive. This flow of cycling energy mirrors the beautiful energy of Reiki.

When we send out positive energy, as in greeting each other, each day, and experience in the spirit of In Lak’ech Ala K’in, or send out Universal Life Force energy (Reiki), these energies literally transform our experiences and begin to create a new world “Garden of Eden.”  We are able to create our reality and live in the truth of this power now and when done with loving gratitude to the life you have, with love for each other, as a part of yourself, fear has no more place in your experience and you no longer have to feel like a victim. You can rewrite the past and create the now future.

The more humanity lives the collective consciousness of In Lak’ech Ala K’in, the boundaries are removed and separateness from everything and the Universe no longer is felt. You will live in the power of Unity Consciousness and feel the truth of that strength, where competition, jealousy, envy, fear, control, power over…have no place.

This is a time to share and co-create with each other and understand the reality of abundance in that there is always enough and then some for everyone. What you live (in action and practice) becomes what you experience. Live from love and therefore you will experience an abundance of it in unlimited and exciting ways.


Sunset 12/21/12 Bimini

Everything always has been and will be a choice between love and fear. Fear simply isn’t the vibration of the new we are creating and so the more we can release it and help each other to move through it, the faster our collective reality will shift, not just our individual ones.

Wishing everyone grace in closure to all things you desire to leave behind and courage to live freely and powerfully in the authenticity of you, as we say goodbye to 2012 and welcome in 2013.

How do you choose to contribute to the new story we are writing together?

We are living in the reality of creative power and this truly is a chance to create your life as a work of art. So explore within, how you’d like to paint that experience.

Below I’ve included excerpts from Eden Sky that I felt had some good insights and sharing to reflect on and that address things many have asked about 12/21/12 and 2012’s closure into the New Year and New World experience awaiting. May you find the truth within yourself as you ring in a new sacred code of loving and living.

In Lak’ech Ala K’in 


Change has long been a fearful thing for human beings … and at the same time, it is our most Divine opportunity. Clinging to the banks of the river may seem safe and more secure, but life’s possibilities are truly engaged only when we trust, release and become part of The Flow of the Universe. ~ Chelle Thompson

Excerpt from Eden Sky’s chapter of 2013! The Beginning is Here:

“This moment in our collective dream is steeped in mystery. This mystery has a heartbeat that lives within us. The mystery blooms in our heart, with petals of innocence and stalks of wisdom. We are each drops in the sea of humanity, part of the physical and psychic collective. Rather than passive spectators, we are here to be conscious participants of this world age transition process. We are all instruments of culture. Our mental, spiritual, emotional and physical energies are the vivid colors splashing on the canvas of Life. What is the quality of our collective art? How can we refine our contribution?”

The 2012 Prophecy ~ Making it Real! By Eden Sky (these are just excerpts that stood out to me, but see link for the full article)

December 21, 2012 marks the Shifting of World Ages, a return to zero point, where we officially transition from the current 5,125 year World Age Cycle, and enter into a New World Cycle; marking a new level of our unfoldment as a planetary collective; a new level of our human evolution in concert with our living Universe.

Solstice 2012 marks a zero point -a simultaneous completion and beginning, called “Creation Day” by the Ancient Maya. From that point, the adventure will continue onward, bringing untold challenges and blessings. As we advance to a new level on the spiral of Time, let us comprehend the vastness of our journey ahead. Each day the mystery deepens, bringing new trials and new awarenesses. There is no pre-determined outcome to our collective story. The essential message of the 2012 Prophecy is that the more we each awaken to our personal contribution to this planetary moment, the greater the possibilities emerge for positive change.

The clarity that December 21, 2012 marks the launching point of a new epoch is not based on proclaiming details of external events. Rather, the opportunity is for as many people as possible to align internally with this understanding, and therefore from an inner alignment of cycles shifting, to help consciously generate and incarnate the dawning of the new era on Earth. Let us contemplate: What can happen in our collective consciousness when each of us really owns the power of our personal contribution to our shared reality?

The 2012 Prophecy is understood as “The Harmonic Convergence of All Prophecies.”In prophetic messages from around the globe which point to these times we are living in, one will find mention of the emergence of such things as: “The Return of Quetzalcoatl,” “The Return of Christ Consciousness,” “The Return of The Kingdom of Shambhala,” “The Return of the Divine Feminine,” “The Return of the Star People,” “The Return of the Wisdom of the Ancestors,” “The Hoop of the Nations Made Whole,” “The Return to Living in Harmony with Nature,” “The Awakening of the Rainbow Warriors.” Other universal themes include: “Everything That has Been Hidden will be Revealed,” “The Lifting of the Veils and Merging of Spirit and Matter,” “The Dawning of Universal Telepathy,” the start of “Heaven on Earth,” and our mutation into a new species that transcends Homo Sapiens, emerging into something like the Qu’ero of Peru call “Homo Luminous.”

To put it simply, it is not the end of the world that is coming, it is the end of a world age. This shifting of World Eras is a cycle change that will steadily shift our human orientation from an ego-based perspective dominated by separation, fear, greed, and destructive, imbalanced tendencies – towards one based in conscious interconnectedness, fueling our tendencies for harmony, compassion, and life-affirming energies and actions. This represents a shift beyond the patriarchal cycle we have been in, sometimes called a “male-dominant linear perspective,” into an Age in which masculine and feminine energies and perspectives are balanced, ideally uniting mind and heart, logic and intuition, spirit and matter. The most blatant example of this shift is in re-prioritizing our values and Placing Planet and People over Profits, in true recognition of the intricate, interdependence of the One Web of Life. It is obvious we cannot survive or thrive on this planet without this transformation of our worldview.

Our collective human mentality is not going to change all in one day or one moment, and likewise the shifting of dominant paradigms and modern lifestyles will not be instantaneous. However, knowing this transformation process is underway can give us great perseverance  and motivate us to deeper innovation and the pioneering of new pathways in our own lives and spheres of influence. This Shifting of World Ages can inspire us internally to nurture a deeper compassion, self-love, awareness, and sensitivity to all our relations, and can guide us to more consciously align our actions and participation in the world so we can increasingly find ways to live more in balance with our Biosphere.

We all know that we have inherited what our ancestors gave to us, and we know that we are all affecting the world we will give to our future generations. Every moment and every decision counts, especially now in these crossroads times. We must continue to work to manifest the vision of a world where our living Earth is honored; where Peace is our priority; where the Awakening of our Human Potential and our creative evolution on all levels is nurtured; where all people have wholesome food, clean water, health care, social justice; where the Biosphere of Earth is holistically restored and honored, recognizing all beings as part of the one family of life – from the humans to the animals, to the trees, the seas, the bees, the air, the eagles, the ants, and the mountains alike…till one day we even embrace the stars and galactic whole as part of our living community!

In this process of Shifting World Ages, every aspect of human planetary culture needs to be re-evaluated and questioned to discern how it can be truly life-affirming – from our energy sources, to our food supply, to our modalities of education and conflict resolution, etc, etc, etc! That is why we have to be prepared for the long haul of bringing in a new era, participating physically and spiritually – leaving no stone unturned. We are being called to rise to the occasion and become wise Shepherds of a fragile new child that will be emerging and growing under our loving care.

“Spiritual realization needs to be integrated with social commitment and direct action… No matter whether we like it or not, each of us is, inevitably, a social and political agent whose smallest actions have a direct influence on other people and the world around us.” -Daniel Pinchbeck

As Paco Alarcon wrote: “The need to bring light into the dark areas inside of us is urgent now….Once the dark side is integrated, it serves the light.”

In this process of Shifting Ages, the dominant energies resounding through the cosmos are increasingly invoking a new human alignment that is initiating new expressions of human culture. According to many prophecies, this is said to happen simultaneously with many earth changes, natural disasters, and crises of all kinds – all of which have been progressively underway. As Louis Pascal writes: “Although sad, human nature often requires crises in order to break free from our patterns of complacency and convenience, and transform the structures which bind us. In one light, crises are actually gifts which push us to overcome our narrow thinking, assert our deepest values, and cooperate together on a grand scale.”

While these times of crises indeed have the power to provoke the most positive human attributes to arise within us, these times of tragedy likewise catalyze tremendous suffering. According to some indigenous peoples’ prophecies, it is said that many humans may not survive the intensity of this Great Shifting, and/or it may be extremely uncomfortable for those who are not in harmony with these vast changes. Indeed, as a global society throughout time, we have accumulated much karma through our actions that have not taken our interconnectedness into account. Many consequences are now underway as a result. These are inevitable, as is the passage that we are now undergoing. Indeed, in this turbulent era, there have already been countless atrocities and massive disasters, resulting in a huge loss of human life, and loss of creatures of all species.

No one can say what is coming next, or when. On this planet, we are all amidst a whole-systems challenge to realize how to live sustainably in harmony with Nature.

“It is essential that we have the courage and wisdom to face the reality of our human mortality, accepting the inherent impermanence of all that lives. Rather than living in fear or denial of death, these times are urging us to confront its potency, and to embrace death as a sacred counterpart of the universal equation: an ever-present ally guiding us to live more fully, grateful for this precious moment. Contemplating the death of the body and the impermanence of all form also opens us to begin to know the realms of spirit, formlessness, and eternal consciousness – exploring a higher-dimensional context to hold the laws of our physical world within.” -Excerpt by Eden Sky from the Book “2013: The Beginning is Here.”

“The accurate content of the message for the Maya Prophecy for our times is that the date of December 21, 2012 is nothing more than a general marker, a specific date that in fact indicates a whole era, an era of hope, an era of opportunity – the opportunity to re-establish a sense of community amongst all humans of this planet…” -From The Maya Taino Prophecy Initiative, led by Maya Elder Antonio Aj Ik and Taino Elder Miguel Sague

What is certain is that we influence each other, and model to one another the possibilities of human culture in all our attitudes and decisions. Whether we can see the results or not, all of our energies and actions ripple out to the whole. Within this unpredictable universe and unstable Earth, what is in our domain to tend to is finding our deepest Intuition of how to conduct our lives in these uncertain and pivotal times; realizing how to truly live our life’s purpose; discovering how to love and care for ourselves and all beings in life-affirming ways; growing in understanding how to evolve our lifestyle choices to be in harmony with our Biosphere; joining in deep collaboration and synergy with our allies on this path.

In conclusion, let us strive to evolve into our deepest human potential to be wise and loving human beings, that we may contribute as consciously as possible to the greater well being of human culture, understanding our place upon this glorious Planet, and within this sentient Universe. Let us honor our place in the vast cycles of time, and heed the calls of our ancestors who left these prophecies for us, now. Let us activate the wisdom given to us by Dr. José Argüelles who urged that we honor our Earth as a Living Work of Art and realize that we can each be instruments of harmony and beauty, serving as Planetary Artists! The tasks to be accomplished in these momentous times call us to cooperate on new and grander levels, that we may manifest ever greater harmonies together. Let us synchronize and unify in deep courage, compassion, creativity, willingness and joy with our brothers and sisters of humanity, to be who we truly are here to be, and do what we are truly here to do. Let us awaken our dormant powers. Let us dream the highest dream. Let us ride the upward spiral through the accelerated currents of change. Let us face the death of the body that we may live from a place of realizing who we are as an essence; a heart. Let us seriously invest in cultivating our intuition and inner-knowing. Let us celebrate and nurture our interconnectedness. Let us paint new beauties upon the canvas of our Earth. Let us be grateful for this life we are given, here and now, ever-evolving as children born of the One Great Mystery.

May we Make this Living Prophecy Real 
by participating mind, body, heart, and soul!

To the Journey!

Overflowing in Love and Newness Here – What’s New With You?


Photo of me in Bimini at breakfast with my cosmic heart activator third eye temporary tattoo, light rays and two giant orbs emerging over my throat/higher heart area and face. This is a good image to share the energy I feel inside bursting/birthing forth.

The energy currently is through the roof. And I know I’m not the only one feeling that way!

Not only is the energy abundantly flowing in, but I just feel such a fullness in breadth of love, gratitude, and excitement that isn’t containable – nor should it be!! 🙂

I continue to experience the powerful energy shifts and activations that have culminated over the last few months and the week in Bimini I just returned from. How about all of you? Have you taken stock of what you’re feeling, where you’re at, how much you’ve changed, and what’s new in your world? Have you intended clearly what you are creating in your experience?

The cool thing is, if you don’t like what you feel or see, you have the power to change it and it is much easier now in the energy of everyone else who is transforming along with you too, as we are all connected.

I feel an interesting sort of immunity right now with the energy source tapped into currently and am ready to take on all of the multitude of new things and projects that are coming in with great embrace. Everything that has been etherically percolating for quite some time, seems to have nested on Earth, all at once, and all these eggs are hatching simultaneously from the warmth of this source I feel. All I keep reminding myself is to breathe and take one thing at a time, trusting fully all things will come together as they are meant to be, with support, and naturally without cause for alarm. LOL!

It does feel somewhat like having tapped into the Well of Life, or Fountain of Youth, if you may. Very fitting since it resides on Bimini. 🙂 But moreso, it is part of the shifts into new realities and new yous that are happening regardless of receiving that sonic boom or over-the-top display some may have been looking for on 12/21/12.

Many of us had always shared that we felt it to be the start of a new way of life as we know it, but not anything cataclysmic. Change has been unfolding before our eyes so subtly and simultaneously, as our concept of time is shifting into its true essence of timelessness, that it may go undetectable how much everything has changed, especially for those who have consistently been walking through the doorways presented. Or, for those who simply still are challenged in believing what their hearts are telling them,despite what their heads or others say.

The new is here now and it’s up to each of us to recognize it and ourselves – as the power is and always was within us.

The journey has just begun indeed. And it is exciting to continue to witness its unfolding and what we can co-create as a collective. Indeed, there may seem like two simultaneous realities existing side by side that we can walk in and out of by choice. So it all comes down to which you choose to be in, in any given moment by the power of your beliefs, experiences needed or that you choose to support, and by the power of love or fear leading your heart.

2013 I sense holds a lot of harmony and balance, love and truth to be experienced if you can reside in your heart. I’m looking forward to hearing about and being witness to all the amazing birthings of newness that I sense is ready to emerge from so many of you. This is your time! We’re all rooting you on and believe in you! It’s like a collective birthday celebration all at once and every day that someone else turns on their light more vibrantly! weeeeeeeeee!

This year of 2013 also holds a big birthday for me – turning 40 (whatever that means) – yet age continues to feel undefinable except by the measure of one’s heart.

And this year will be filled with tons of new. Isn’t it amazing how you can continually create? That’s limitlessness for you!

Next week I’ll start sharing and announcing details about some new developments and opportunities. For now, here are a few of the things I’m looking forward to experiencing and offering.

This year, in celebration of my 40th, I’m feeling called to Tibet. This will be my personal sacred journey, but as always, I will be facilitating collective work in assistance to the raising of vibrations on Earth at the same time. I actually received this message it was to be my next large and new journey, for this life, when I was in Grenada. I am very much looking forward to it, as I had been drawn there for some time, but now apparently IS that time.

There will be some Bimini updates on a new retreat for 2013 as well. Stay tuned for that. I will be listening to the collective needs and requests on the offerings for it. The time period seems to be already manifesting. So if you couldn’t join our journey last time, this will be another opportunity to immerse in the beautiful energies.

Potentially a new sacred journey location, but that remains yet to be known if this year or not.

Art workshops are still percolating. The original time period of start has been temporarily postponed, as I must go with the flow of the current energy needs and allow the timing to reveal itself. This may both be offered locally and in Bimini, but again, still waiting confirmation on that. 🙂

I’m in process of setting up accelerated Reiki intensive workshop weekends in New Jersey right now, probably Reno, and will have some local (Orange County, California) as well. So if you are in any of these areas and interested, stay tuned for that too.

And I have tons of creative energies coming through for new projects and passions, several new and exciting sacred tattoo designs to sink my teeth into right now, and other project ideas. I usually receive things way before they come about, but being how time seems nonexistent currently, I can’t quite grasp when they will manifest, but just know how much I feel their energy and excitement.

And as always I will continually share new developments and offerings, as well as the supportive specials, as it’s always my desire to assist as I can.

All I know is I will tackle what divinely channels through, as is meant for the now and what is most needed collectively. It’s wonderful to have visions and ideas, but more powerful to allow them to percolate, cultivate, and reveal themselves naturally. This is the now of a return to natural harmony and to flow with the currents of Universal Life Force energy in and around us, while trusting everything you need is within you.

Let yourself be guided by the stillness within that reveals all and find the power inherent in your heart.

Until next time, love and magick to you always!

If you have any questions, requests, co-collaboration ideas, or want to get the inside on early registrations for anything, you can email me at

Bimini 12/21/12 – A Journey of the Heart


Me supporting the moon in Bimini – taken by Brian

It seems very fitting that divine timing aligns this post with the last Full Moon of 2012 – a time to fully free yourself, trust and believe in the power of you, and allow more love to flow through you. As always, things unfold beautifully when we release expectations, attachments, and flow with the currents in and around us. This is one of the themes and messages received on our journey of the heart in Bimini.

I’ve been letting the energy from my recent experience sit with me for a few days since returning. Usually I will write my feelings and share experiences as soon as I return from a trip, but this one needed some time to settle while I awaited the sharings wanting to come through.


The ARC on the eve of our first sunset

For those just finding this blog, or if you didn’t know or want a recap, I was recently facilitating a retreat in Bimini, Bahamas at the ARC – The Atlantis Rejuvenation Center – from 12/16 – 12/22/12, as we worked with the energies leading up to and on 12/21/12. The focus of our journey was to anchor in the energies for the birthing of a New Earth and simultaneously, a new individual and collective reality.

This was intended to be a powerful time of cosmic heart activation and empowerment for all that joined, and indeed I can say, without a doubt, that all of this, and more, was accomplished.

Regardless of the time I’ve allowed for integrating of this energy to come through in expression, I still find myself at a loss for words to share the magnitude of what was experienced. So please bare with me as I do my best to explain my feelings and perspectives about our time shared as a collective soul in the Atlantean energy of Bimini.

In short, this is a story of love. A journey began of 17 individual hearts and souls, culminating to a pivotal juncture of powerful vulnerability and creative self-expression at its finest, and concluding as a Universal pod of harmonious synergy in the grace of “we.”

Jenn Pipp, one of the amazingly gifted and loving souls in our group, captured the essence of this in her brilliant poetic words, only surpassed by her powerfully moving deliverance to our group on the last shared evening. Please take a moment to read Jenn’s heart sharings entitled, my answer: we, here:

my answer: we.

The journey within transmuted into a divine reflection without, as each beautiful soul courageously emanated their essence in an illumination of co-created light. This merging of light became an expression of exquisite love, as the unique color of each soul blended into a beautiful masterpiece.

I will share some of the highlights of our journey (and moreso a summary of its essence), as they express through me, to help in conveying what I witnessed and felt experienced by our group and the meaning I feel it holds collectively. Likely, I will be sharing some individual highlights in future posts, as the photos from the group members start to come in.

For now, I have only my limited photos, and what I’ve received from my Joyful Earth Crystals partner, Allison Jacobson and Brian, to share, but I wanted to tell the story while it is fresh 🙂 Several of the group likely will also be sharing their stories and I will share those as they also come in.

I won’t be sharing every detail, but hopefully you’ll be able to feel the essence through what I do convey in a summary of words, photos and energy that paint a story – our story – and a piece of the collective’s story.


Jenny and me reunited and sporting our third eye temporary cosmic heart tattoo activators

To begin, this was a trip I feel that has been in the making all of my current life and beyond – one of my soul missions come full circle. Much that I have been energetically working on, with, and towards came to a head over this momentous week. It was a soul integration experience at a very deep level, of which I had been preparing for and receiving activations and downloads for, up until embarking on the trip. My work takes place both in tangible and intangible ways, as I am always subtly and energetically facilitating things behind the scenes.

For me, the major shifts needed had occurred prior to this journey, so that while on this journey I could fully and solely be there in service to the beautiful souls that joined and hold that anchored space for them. It also was a full circle completion of many things I had previously worked on in my past times in Atlantis, carried forth in the energy of the new and now. And I, along with everyone else, am still integrating all of the transformational energy and activations that have taken place.

This retreat and gathering was the official initiation and “christening” so to speak for The ARC and we can’t think of a better way to have kick started things. Our group was a reassembling of souls from our time in Atlantis, come together to help reactivate a new Earth reality for the collective along with all others who gathered at various spots across the globe. The love-infusion and activation of The ARC will prove to be an opening for many to journey to this power spot to continue to facilitate the raising of vibrations that will continue our 5th Dimensional evolution and beyond.

I am heart and soul grateful for Jenny Yemaya’s courage to hold fast to her vision and 14-year dream of The ARC (despite all obstacles and challenges), as if not for her, we would not have had the opportunity of this experience and others would not be able to receive the kind of healing love and empowering activations that The ARC makes available in this power spot on the global grid.

Jenny and her team – Amanda Russcol, Charlie Coglianese, and Philip Russell – are some of the most loving and giving souls whose hard work, belief, sweat, tears and love have made The ARC a reality for the collective to experience on their individual journeys of healing empowerment. Thank you to each of you from my heart to yours. You are loved and blessed in many ways – I love you each for the exquisite fragrances you uniquely add to the aromatic essence of life.

Thank you Jenny for everything, including manifestation of The ARC, and for the unspoken things that go without saying. I honor, love, and respect you in every way and know that our connection is one that goes beyond a need to communicate, but right now it must be said that I see you and basically, you rock!

Jenny and me

Jenny and me on our 2009 trip – oh how we’ve changed!! We both had reflected on our reversing hair styles since this trip. Me now having the short hair and Jenny the long 🙂

As I’ve shared before, I met Jenny back in 2009 on my first trip to Bimini. We knew upon our first communicating and seeing photos of each other that there was a deep recognition and connection. We knew we had worked together in Atlantis in the healing temples with a common heart focus as Children of the Law of One. This was further revealed and reiterated upon our physically meeting on a trip Jenny was facilitating then. Amanda happened to also be the raw chef on this trip and the amazing Philip had flown in one evening during my week there. So I had the chance to physically connect with the three of them then. Little did we know what would culminate 3 and a half years later on 12/21/12.

I had always felt I would return and had always felt it would be somehow with Jenny. I just didn’t know when, as all things reveal in divine timing. So when she announced the birthing of The ARC and that facilitators were welcome, I instantly heard and answered the call. Originally we had planned an August trip, but as the Universe works its magickal ways, The ARC was still in renovation and we had to postpone the trip. It was then that Jenny offered me any dates, including 12/21/12. You can imagine, given Jenny and my connection, and what you may know of the work I do and am drawn to, and things I write about, that it was a no-brainer. 🙂

me at the bimini beach

Me on 12/21/12 reflecting over the water on our beach

A little of my history in summary: I’ve spent the good majority of this life on a spiritual path, coming in knowing my sense of mission and having a deep devotional service focus, regardless of whether I knew exactly how that might unfold specifically. I always never felt to be from here, but definitely of here and deeply heart-devoted as an Earth Keeper to help facilitate the raising of vibrations in the way I could, along with all other children of the Central Sun.

Like anyone, I went through my share of Earth-bound turbulence and heart and soul wrenching experiences, but each was a stepping stone to this integration life and to access the soul elements and unconditional love and compassion that would be needed. Responsibility, in one sense or another, has been something I’ve taken seriously all my life and have had to learn how to embrace the fears that come along with that. Fortunately, love can help see us through anything. Where there is fear, it is simply a longing to love. So the depth of love I felt for the Earth, all of her children, the collective and Cosmos, and very dear soul companions that found their supportive way to me, were the guiding forces to find the strength needed and to share that love within as well as without, in the darkest of hours and my times I easily could have slipped away.

me on the boat

Me at the front of the boat feeling the freedom of the wind and the water

Since young I have been traveling the world, moreso in the last 7 years, as part of my soul work to assist other light workers in preparing and supporting the Earth grids at the major power spots across the globe. Each of my journeys were always divinely guided and I would facilitate both personal and collective intensive healing work, much of which would also come through in the healing messages and energy of my paintings. Many times I would end up energetically co-faciliating on the group journeys I attended, as I had always felt I would facilitate more sacred journeys when the timing was aligned, as this was something that came heart and soul fully natural to me, which is to support others. I always had felt an importance to having visited areas before actually facilitating, so as to ensure I had integrated the energy and could fully just be there to assist others to do the same. I also had always received the message this was part of my work in this life to continue facilitating in one form or another.


Sunset energies appear on 12/21/12 on the beach at the north end near the vortex area

So yes, I felt always that on 12/21/12 I would be called somewhere to assist the harmonic convergence towards the creation of a New Earth and new reality for all those that were ready to walk through the energetic doorways. The Universe made it clear to me that my place this time would be in the Atlantean vortex energy of Bimini, which holds access to the most powerful transmutational energies to move forward from fears and grief into a new and freeing experience of empowered healing love and magick of clear intention.

I knew that everyone around the globe would be exactly where their soul intended, to support the shifts taking place over the course of these star gateways we’ve been moving through and indeed for 12/21/12. So many came together or worked in solo or small groups globally, gathering at places that called their hearts, including some of the other vortex areas and power spots on the Earth grid.

I also knew that the perfect group would manifest for this journey, as it did. It was all about belief and trust and surrendering to the Universe, while giving of my heart for the highest good, whatever that may be.

And each soul that did gather with us had journeyed long and far in their own personal experiences to be there at this time, bringing to the table a multitude of amazing gifts and uniqueness that were perfect ingredients to the recipe of this group’s energy and perfect representational ambassadors for the collective.

The colored pasts and all the obstacles and challenges each had faced, are part of their beauty and preciousness. Layers were shed in more ways than each person can imagine, revealing the authenticity and value of what each has to offer. Powerful transformations took place and shifts will continue to unfold in enormous ways for everyone from the experience we shared.

I can’t express how I feel about those that were able to and did honor the heart message within to join our group, as they are beautiful beyond words. I also know that many amazingly gorgeous souls were unable to join us that wanted to, and to each of you I thank you for the supportive love you sent and for your presence in heart, as it was felt and received. Thank you for anchoring in the loving energy from where you did end up and for the roles you embraced. I know that you all were perfectly supported on the journey most supportive for your own and the collective’s needs. Thank you. I know also that you will join at a future date and place, to help assist in the continued raising of vibrations, when the perfect alignments unfold.

The stunning souls that courageously embraced their own calling on this journey with us in Bimini, were no short than awe-inspiring to me and I feel humbled, honored, and heart and soul grateful to each and every one of them for showing up, revealing their vulnerabilities, and joining in co-creative partnership with me and the collective.

It was humbling to us all to be able to hold the space and anchor in the energies at one of the most powerful energy vortex spots on the Earth grid – the Atlantix vortex area – on this auspicious date of 12/21/12. Working in union with all of the souls that gathered at each of the vortex areas across the globe, and that held the heart space from where ever they were called to be, was a truly “wow” moment for me and us.

I want to extend deepest gratitude to each and every one of you who connected collectively and shared your love and gifts with divine intention. Mission, as was perfectly aligned with the collective now readiness, accomplished.

Our journey was nothing like most of the group expected, and yet everything and more that they could have ever imagined desiring it to be. It was a divinely orchestrated soul symphony of perfection. And for me, I felt that everyone who joined was everything and more than I had intuited them to be and the more is what I desire that they all take away with them.

The group on our first boat trip all together

We were a group of 17 souls – myself, Jenny, Amanda, Charlie and Philip of the ARC, and 12 others – many of who came from California on the opposite coast, interestingly. 10 of us met up in Fort Lauderdale on the morning of the 16th with 3 joining us later in the afternoon over at The ARC on Bimini.

New and old friends alike, it was a seamless reconnection of souls that had journeyed timelessly together over the course of Cosmic and Earth ages and will continue to do so long after.

Our days were full – full of love and lots of other good Earthly and Cosmic stuff! – consisting of yoga or beach time, breakfast, sessions of Reiki teaching, attunements, breathwork meditation, and group healings, lunch, boat trips out with the dolphins, snorkeling, communing, and receiving downloads and integration, island time, gatherings for talks, sharing, tarot, crystals, reading, being, etc. before dinner, dinner, and more fun and connecting time. All of which was accompanied by the most amazing company, hosts, and energy, messages of wisdom and insightful revelations, sharing each other’s gifts, out of this world raw vegan healthy gourmet meals, supportive energy, new adventures and experiences, harnessing of individual power, hysterical laughs, musical celebrations, games, sharing, tears, joy, fun, light and LOVE!

laughter at the ARC

One of our after meal conversations filled with laughter

We were open to where the journey would lead and flowed with what the Universe had in store. We received surprises around each corner and changes with plans that all revealed in perfection because we so willingly embraced what was in the highest good. How amazing it was to be with such a giving, open, and accepting group that honored each other in every way, respected individual thoughts and desires, and found the light and joy in everything that unfolded. Nothing to fear, nothing to hide, no drama…just pure unconditional love.


First day 12/16/12 arriving on the water taxi – we are all so excited!

Upon arriving the first day everyone was just beaming. It was so beautiful to see The ARC for the first time, having heard and known about all the work that had gone into its birthing and the profound shifts it had gone through in receiving a complete make over from its original decrepit state. What a transformation! And so emanating of the love from the hands who helped mold it into creation.

Everyone could feel the powerful energy of Bimini and its surrounding waters from the moment of arrival, as this area is one of the most prominent vortexes on the Earth grid. Some sensitives were already feeling the energy shifts upon first arrival into Fort Lauderdale even, and continued to experience both subtle and dramatic energies as the week unfolded.


Me at The ARC on the dock before heading out on our first boat trip and dolphin swim

For myself, the months leading up to this journey seemed to be my preparation, including my recent trip to Grenada. I was immersed in work, energetic downloads, and shifts during this time. Up until the moment of arriving, I had been pretty energetically drained from so much all at once, and didn’t know how I would get through the week, but my heart guided me on. And once I arrived on the island I forgot being tired. In fact, I wasn’t, despite getting only 2-3 hours sleep most nights while there. I just kept feeling so much energy and vibrancy that would keep me up most of the night and then deeply sleep for a couple of hours. So much so that my room companions heard much going on from my side of the room during those deep sleeps. 🙂 I was definitely journeying and working night and day, as I gathered we all were. It wasn’t until end of the week that I had a day of being more within and in a needed restful state, but it seemed to be more connected to a place of being able to just be and allow all that had taken place to fully integrate.

My energy continues high-vibed and it feels that I’ve tapped into that endless energy source that is available when you access your heart source. I know several others are experiencing similar upon their return.


Atlantic spotted dolphins greeting us on our first day and swim

And much love and heart sourcing was had on this trip, both in giving and receiving. We were gifted the first day with a remarkable appearance of the beautiful Atlantic spotted dolphins just outside the harbor. The outlying waters of Bimini are home to the Atlantic spotted dolphins and the bottlenose dolphins, of which we were honored to connect with both on this trip. Apparently finding the dolphins in this area that we did is a very fortuitous and rare place to find them, but we instantly knew they had been anxiously awaiting our visit and came to honor and greet us with their loving joy.


Atlantic spotted dolphin friend

This first group was a pod of 13 and they stayed with us for an extended time – enough for three groups to get in the water and play. And play we did. They were so engaging and happy, circling around us, diving down with those in the group who would descend with them and clicking their beautiful whistle-like sound resonance with exuberance as they communicated.


Atlantic spotted dolphins we swam with

To say we were grateful for this communing they willingly engaged in, is an understatement. We felt honored and I was so pleased that they had greeted the group with a bang from the start. One of the memorable and touching moments I remember from this, aside from it being many people’s first time swimming with the wild dolphins and seeing everyone just light up from the experience, was hearing from one of the group, Steve Smith of Ahimsa Life Coaching, whose life long dream was to swim with the dolphins, emerging from the water with such a beaming child-like glow on his face and saying it was so beautiful and amazing he wanted to cry.

Little did we know this would be the only time we would swim with them on this journey, as everything is subject to flowing with the natural currents of life and the bigger Universal picture.

dolphin cloud

At first we had been saddened that the 3 who joined us later had not been party to this experience, but we later came to learn that the 3 were the only ones in the group who had swam with dolphins in Hawaii very recently. It felt to be that everyone was given the experience most perfectly aligned and needed and that the work with the dolphins comes in cosmic ways that unfolds beyond logic. This seemed to be one of the themes that was the underlying current for the group – that of perfection in all that is and in releasing expectations so that we could accept the beauty of more than what those attachments limit us to receive.

We each had all been given our needed experiences in the water with the dolphins that had prepared us energetically for this trip and the work that lied ahead.

When we all were united that evening, upon our return, we were all greeted again by the most spectacular sunset of the week, on this first day. Gorgeousness it was! And we found that the 3 that had arrived later had enjoyed a beautiful day at the beach and had received their own bliss. They had not only shared the beautiful sunset, but had received their own dolphin greeting with an amazing dolphin cloud message in the sky. We were a cohesive group connected from start to finish and still remain as so.

my painting at The ARC

Another gift for me was in experiencing my artwork at The ARC. It was so wonderful to see my painting, As Above, So Below (which has its own unique story of how it came to be here and the energy behind it), hanging in the sitting room alongside artist, Greg Taylor’s work. It added to the energy of our experience and times we spent in conversations and playing games in this room overlooking the beautiful aqua waters before and after meals and activities. It is so amazing to see how the painting shifts in color and light in this beautiful space. I felt much gratitude and honor to have my art in this loving energy and to share it with everyone there in our communal space for the week.

Our first evening all together – the 17 of us – was beautifully shared over dinner and conversation, with more connecting afterwards. It was also our first group sharing on how we all came to be on this journey and where we came from to get here. From the start the space was safe and loving and so many a tear was shed and laughter had by all. For me, this was truly another very memorable moment to hear everyone’s unique stories and to receive the beautiful words and gratitude shared that touched my heart deeply to hear.

initiation attunements reiki 1

Me giving 12 Reiki 1 initiation attunements beside the beautiful energy of the water- what a gift to give and receive

For me, the gift in all of this was to see the amazing transformations that each person went through and to be witness to their authenticity and power revealing itself. It was like watching butterflies emerge from their cocoons in magnificent ways. And to be able to support each soul into empowerment on this journey and to be of service in any way I could that would help that loving process was my joyful role I embraced fully. So it was times like these when I would receive the magnitude of energy behind what this trip meant for each person and to be humbled by the beautiful words shared on my behalf, that was more gift than a person could want in a life time.

A perfect first day indeed.

After our first dinner I gifted everyone the first two of four gifts I had intended to give. Each person received a personally programmed and intuitively chosen Atlantean energy Amazonite stone and a small print of my painting, Visions of Atlantis. I wanted everyone to have the stones for the week to be able to work with and to absorb the energies of Bimini to take home with them. And the print captures the energy of the dolphins, beautiful Bimini waters and the Atlantis vortex, so that each person could take a piece of the magickal energy with them as visual remembrance to meditate with and journey within when they needed.

Later I supported everyone with Reiki healing attunements for whatever intents they had and also gave everyone an Emerald Bridge temporary tattoo to wear on the trip – this design represents the Heart Chakra energy that is the foundation and core of everything that guides me and what I feel is the most important energy there is – a way to help activate the Cosmic Heart!

It was a joy to see the smiles these gifts brought and so fun to see all of us wearing our temporary tattoos. Jenny, Jenn, and I sported ours on our third eye. (later I added them to the palms of my hands – a place I always wanted to maybe one day tattoo). Some placed them on wrists and hands, while others directly on their Heart Chakras. Fun and power in one!

amanda and charlie

The days that followed were each uniquely much the same and grew in magnitude as layers of the onions were peeled more and more and new and stronger foundations were built in place of them to grow upon. And all of this was fueled not just by everyone’s energy and uniqueness they brought to the table, or the amazing supportive energy that was all around us constantly and consistently from the other worlds, but literally was fueled by the amazingly exquisite love and vibrant healthiness that was infused into each and every savory raw vegan work-of-art meal that Amanda – chef extraordinaire (also known as Fig Leaf Betty), with the help of  Charlie – sharing the chef genius hat, prepared for us.

Thank you dearly for supporting our bodies along with our hearts, minds and souls, Amanda and Charlie! It is sooo important to nourish and nurture our physical beingness, as it is the precious vehicle that carries us through life and makes all that we work towards possible. You are valued greatly and thank you for valuing each of us!

The multi-talented Amanda also gifted us with her gentle and loving yoga teaching and powerful sound healing. She assisted me with my first headstand – yay!!! – showing me how simple it could be, as she has a knack for helping to bring that out in you, and a wonderful partner class that was powerfully connective and great to attend after having been away from yoga for months since I had broken my foot twice this year.

I know everyone was loving Amanda’s yoga classes that catered to the needs and desires of everyone there, of which I unfortunately missed many of due to preparation for my Reiki classes. But thank you for providing this way to physically integrate the energy from our journey.

And thank you, also, Amanda for our special sound healing evening on the 20th that you facilitated, in preparation for the 21st. It was a true gift for all of us, gifted to all of us by Allison and her husband Chris. Amanda did an hour long sound healing for the entire group, along with individual sound healing sessions, late after dinner and pre to 12/21/12 ringing in at midnight. Thank you dearly to all three of you for making this opportunity available to everyone and really adding another layer to the powerfully transformative integration of new.

Did I mention that the group consisted of AMAZING souls?! Well, I’m going to mention it again anyway. 🙂 Every day was infused with joy because of those that brought their own joy to the table through their loving and open hearts. We had a midst us the honor of being graced by Shamans, Reiki Master Teachers, Wise Sages, Medicine Men and Women, Seers, Healers, Artists, Musicians, Writers, Visionaries, Faeries, Elves, Shape Shifters, Magicians, Alchemists, Yogis and Yoginis, Animal Communicators, Telepathists, Teachers, Life and Nutrition Coaches, High Priests and Priestesses, Goddesses and Gods alike …. and then some!

In essence, leaders and ambassadors, each in their own right. (At least that is what I saw, including and beyond what may not have been so obvious to each) 😉 All in good timing, things unfold.

reiki teaching

Our first Reiki 1 class at The ARC in the yoga room

And each day, more of these gifts revealed themselves as we embarked on the energy presented to us each moment. Our first day was celebrated with our reconnection, in this life, and then unraveled into deepening the meaning of those connections further. Our Reiki teaching and sessions began on day 2 and continued for the next three days, which was a very beautiful experience to support and see the sparks in each person’s eyes light up with the anticipation and excitement of what this experience would bring to their life and the lives of all those they would touch.

Day 2 of Reiki 1 – Giving and receiving Reiki for the first time

Our teaching sessions, led by myself, were before lunch and took us through both Reiki 1 and Reiki 2 training. We got time not only to practice during class, but then were able to share in a huge group healing session we did on 12/21/12. The entire group did about a 15 minute hands-on healing for each person, all together at once, over our crystal grids a few of us created the night before for our sound healing session.

group healing

Giving our first group healing to Brian over the crystal grids

It was so amazing to me to be on a journey where every single person (all 17) had been trained to some level of Reiki – at least Reiki 2, which is what I was assisting on this retreat, but we also had several Reiki Master Teachers present as well. I was honored to be able to provide initiation attunements to 12 of the 17 and to offer healing attunements, as one of my gifts, to those that had come all this way to journey with us.

What a powerful experience to be in the energy of the Atlantean vortex, the dolphins, 12/21/12, all of the gifted souls, and to be able to give and receive Reiki. I felt the Reiki training and initiations would also be supportive in sending out energy globally, with our learning the Distant Healing Symbol, which is why I felt it important to get through to Level 2 on this retreat and felt it important as a tool to take home to continue to administer healing support in service ways. (This has presented itself already, as one of our members currently has an outpatient surgery we are all supporting right now, which is a beautiful thing to be able to do as a group regardless of where we are.)

group healing

Being that this trip felt to be an initiation of sorts for the new, not only the Earth was evolving into, but that each of these individuals was stepping into in their lives, this seemed fitting to offer such a sacred process to everyone. It also seemed perfect in assisting each to feel more empowered in their healing support towards everything we put intentions towards. Just beyond words, wow!

I am grateful to have been able to provide this gift to others at this important time and grateful for my Reiki Master Teacher and precious soul sister, Laura Bruno, for believing in me and for agreeing to show up at the perfect timing in both of our lives.

For me, empowering others is the greatest gift of love I receive. It is my soul mission and heart commitment.

golf carts in bimini

After our lunches, we would get ourselves ocean-ready and together, load up the two golf carts, and make our way to our boat for the week, where we were in good hands with Captain Al. Al knew just where to journey in order to find our dolphin brothers and sisters, knowing the waters and their realm very intimately.


Our boat for the week

Of our five boat days, we had the one amazing swim with the dolphins and then two other days of finding and communing with them from the boat, or in at least one of those cases, I’d say our dolphin friend came to find us! Regardless of whether or not you actually swim with the dolphins, which always varies depending on their desires that we honor, as well as how things align cosmically, you always feel their energy, can receive their messages, and take part in sacred communing with them. Powerful in every way, no matter which way!


Mysterious face profile appears in the water with the messenger dolphin

In the one case, we as a group had received both through our animal communicator on board and some of our intuitive receiving, that the dolphins were very busy preparing for 12/21/12, as well as working hard alongside the work we were doing to assist with things globally. A dolphin messenger was sent out to us to acknowledge and share their gratitude and assure us they were sending their love and energy and were honored to be working with us. This dolphin seemed to search us out and kept coming at our boat and playing with us, as it communicated.

It was this day that several things happened while connecting with the dolphin. Strange things simultaneously took place, including all but 2 of my photos of the dolphin disappearing (one of which was an image of a feminine face profile with markings that showed up out in the waters with the dolphin ), another person’s camera falling into the ocean with all her photos of this dolphin gone (who knows what they would have revealed), and another person’s photos showing lovely aura glows around some of our feet facing the water and dolphin. This appearance in the water with the one dolphin that came to message us we felt to be the manifestation of the Goddess of the Ocean and some wondered if it was one of our Cosmic Beings showing up. In either case, definitely an extraordinary manifestation, of which weren’t in scarcity.


Energy grid that appeared in the sky that Allison caught on film one evening, which was taken during my giving healing attunements to four of the group members

We consistently kept getting amazing things showing up on all of our photos that mirrored what was taking place in the parallel dimensions not seen always by the naked eye. Some of which I’m sharing in this blog, of the most incredible ones caught by myself and Allison. Looking forward to seeing the rest of the group’s photos though, to see what else was captured that we hadn’t seen. These felt to us to be confirmations of what was going on on deep levels, in acknowledgment of the work we were doing and what was taking place globally, as well as cosmically at this potent time period.

These images captured in photos reiterated what many of us felt and was a way to share it with the world, as we know that mere sharing isn’t always accepted in belief. So a little manifestation that can’t so easily be dismissed, was a good call on our etheric and cosmic friends part. 🙂

Needless to say, our time around the dolphins was magickal in every way, as it always is. Our cetacean friends embody an essence of, and beyond, this Earthly experience and to connect with them is a precious gift.

bimini road

The other two days of boat time we had amazing snorkeling swims over the Atlantis Stones of The Bimini Road and at The Three Sisters Rocks.

Our days spent snorkeling and just taking in the energy of the Bimini aqua waters was fantastic as well. Hours spent on the water were great times for our group to rest, share, integrate, heal, and receive activations from the vortex energy that surrounds and embodies this entire region, and from beyond. We came upon stingrays and a multitude of colorful tropical fish, as well as flying fish, sea turtle, and received a greeting from a Nurse shark, which I discovered at The Three Sisters Rocks when myself and joyous Melissa decided to go counter-clockwise to the group.

We stayed with the shark until the rest of the group arrived, as we were so excited for everyone to also connect with this amazing being. Allison got a good shot of it for us with her awesome underwater camera, which is where the underwater photos you see of the ocean creatures (both human and not) and Bimini Road come from.

Thank you to Allison for capturing these and many of the great story-telling photos on our journey.

Although we enjoyed healthy fruit snacks on the boat (that followed amazing breakfasts and lunches), by the end of the day you can imagine we were all looking forward to returning home after fulfilling experiences, to be surprised by and take in yet another of Amanda’s amazing creations of the day, concluded by fabulous desserts that mirrored the deliciousness of her dinners. Disappointment did not have a welcome mat on this trip.

One of the nights, about mid-week we played a very special game called The Compliment Game, which had been created on an intimate gathering at The ARC held in September by the group then that Jenny had with her. Jenny shared this game with the 17 of us on this trip and we had a blast. It’s a very positive and fun game that keeps your brain working, your heart open, and the positive energy and love a-flowin’! We all very much enjoyed it and were grateful to Chris for his keeping records throughout the game to assist! A few of our group took this game to their family over the holidays with very positive and fun results. It’s definitely destined to be a hit! And until then, if you visit The ARC you’ll be sure to get a chance to play it.


Our evening at The ARC – Yvonne, Kate and Jenn – courtesy of The ARC

Once we concluded our Reiki training, our last days were filled with meditations, group healings, fun, and a powerful breathwork meditation, facilitated by Jenny – The Quantum Light Breath – a transformational breathing process with Jeru Kabbal – which you can order online. We worked with The Original Version CD. The link here is one I found where this version is available. There may be more.

preparing grid for sound healing

This was a very powerfully transformative experience we all did as a group. The meditation lasts an hour, which when done as a group is done blind folded in order to allow each person the sacred, safe and private space to fully experience and flow with what comes up during the breath work journey within. This took place on the 20th, day before 12/21 and was profound for everyone. This was the third time I had experienced this meditation (the first 2 times were on my last Bimini trip with Jenny) and each time has always been deeply moving and allowing of shifts to take place. The more you can embrace the journey, the more transformative it can be.


One of our crystal grids we created

For myself, being quite visual and feeling, I received beautiful visions that were moving and confirming. I also went through a release of tears of exquisite joy, acknowledgement,  cleansing and love. It took me on what was first a more organic and physical journey, then journeying into the emotions, and then going into the beyond and etheric realms. It is here in the Cosmos that I was greeted by a council of Cosmic beings that felt to be ambassadors of the council. I was traveling through doorway after doorway and flying through the beautiful Cosmos. I kept seeing many different forms of Extraterrestrial and Ascended Masters, that felt to be of high rankings and from all over the Universe. I could have stayed there and in some ways was at point of floating away. And kept seeing a close up of a large eye that was dark with golden highlights. Very large and beautiful, looking at and through me, feeling to be a Universal Consciousness. It came to me in message that they had all come to honor the work accomplished, a mission complete, and were paying respects. I can’t really go into it further than this, but it was most humbling, beautiful and full of tremendous love. I remember that when the first doorway appeared that I traveled through, it was just seconds before Jeru was speaking of a doorway to walk through. 🙂 Everyone had different and powerful experiences, of which some shared and it was yet another way we went deeper into our group connecting and global work – as when one heals or shifts, it affects the whole like the ripples of water.


Me returning from my solo walk down the beach to receive messages after midnight as 12/21/12 rolled in – courtesy of Allison

This evening was also the group sound healing and then afterward, 6 of us ventured to our beach across the way, which holds powerful Holy Grail and Chalice energy. We felt we had all our lives to sleep, so it was important we take advantage of tuning in to the energies of 12/21/12, as it was just rolling in. We actually got to the beach just after 12:21 midnight on the 21st and stayed there until 1:30am in silent receiving and giving.

It is here that I received a message channeled from beyond. It seemed not only in answer to many of the things we had discussed, but held the simplistic code for life. Yes the keys and answers truly are the complex made simple.

The message is:

Seek not what is in your heart, for all things will reveal when you come to know the kingdom within.

Another interesting and unexpected unfolding that took place, was the quick approach of an oncoming cold front that altered how our 12/21/12 was spent.

Captain Al had received warning that the cold front was approaching, which would render our going out on the water impossible and treacherous at the least. This put a monkey wrench in our plans, but we soon realized that all was in divine order.

sunrise solstice

Just coming out of our group Winter Solstice 12/21/12 sunrise meditation – courtesy of Allison

Our original plan was that half of our group would venture to the land vortex while the other half would venture to the water vortex (a two hour boat ride each way from the island by small and speedier boat). Al said that chances were extremely slim, but he’d let us know by that evening. We received the word of a no-go, but by then we had all embraced this change. Some of us had tuned in to receive the messages of this sudden shift, from calm and beautiful waters and sunny warm days, to what by the next day by the looks of how we all bundled up and dressed, was like a huge winter storm was in our midst. We were quite the sight on a tropical island all bundled in our winter gear!

Jenny shared that she hasn’t been able to get back to the vortex more than the first time she went over 14 years ago. The energy there is so powerful that it can only be accessed at very aligned times or else everything will get in the way of it being possible. It either opens or it stays closed.


Sunrise 12/21/12 Winter Solstice

What a couple of us received was that this sudden overnight change was a collective reflection and Universally supportive shift. The energy that this vortex opens and makes available, had to be protected at this time, as the collective was not quite yet ready to receive these powerful energies. Nothing we do is a personal process alone. Everything is connected and we have to work for the collective highest good and bigger picture. Divine timing is crucial and at times like these where something much bigger than perhaps many can even imagine, is taking place, there is no room for error. We have learned from the past and mistakes made in Atlantis, not to repeat this again. And the energy of recent, collectively, was not as ideally aligned in an empowered place to benefit from, rather than have margin for error and abuse by the opening of this powerful energy. So we will continue to support the shifts into higher vibrations so as to fully benefit from the energies in a most productive, higher good way. That is about all I can get into, but this message I had received was confirmed when I returned, through a channeling I was gifted and by a couple of people’s energetic confirmations that I was communicating this with on our trip when we got the news.


12/21/12 sunset energies

Needless to say, we still engaged in a very powerful 12/21/12 together. So rather than us anchoring in water and land, we all stayed on land and connected with the vortex energy that is present and experienced on the island itself, since it is in the grid line of the vortex and the energy is an extension of it. No matter where you are, this powerful energy can be felt on the island of Bimini and activations are received. And receive and send out we did, from this power spot during the entire week, and on 12/21/12. Our photos kept reminding us directly of the work done, downloads received, support around us, and the presence of powerful energies.

Despite some of us getting to bed late due to our beach meditative time as 12/21 rolled in, we all woke at the crack of dawn for a powerful Winter Solstice sunrise meditation led by Amanda on the morning of 12/21/12. We lined all of our chairs at the front of The ARC looking out across the water where the sun rises. Then we drew in and anchored down and through our hearts connecting through to the Sun, Earth, Cosmos, within and without, as we spread healing energy and love globally. Another beautiful and awe-inspiring moment.

The rest of the day we engaged in the group Reiki healings on each individual – half done in the day time and the remainder in the evening after dinner – and enjoyed some play time. We did have to see one of our new family members off on this day – Steve – whom I mentioned earlier with the beautiful dolphin experience he had. We were all sad to have him go, but he needed to get to his family for celebrations. We were grateful for his presence, and how far he had come to be with us, and that we got to share the morning Solstice meditation with him.


Steve and me before he departed

So we all loaded up on the golf carts and saw him off with great sadness, yet also joy for we know we will all reunite and are grateful for the beautiful connections and new pod formed. Then the rest of us had a play day! Well deserved and very fitting after quite an intensive week and in honor of everything we had done to prepare for this trip and this day in general.

We explored a couple of local shops (I was so touched by 3 of our group surprising me with a beautiful butterfly conch shell sculpture as a Christmas gift – thank you again Brian, Allison and Chris!), visited The Dolphin House (built by local author/historian, Ashley Saunders in Alicetown all made of tile mosaics and is the most unique and artistic structure on Bimini), walked the beach (where the huge storm waves were rolling in layer after treacherous layer – yes, Al was right not to venture in the waters!), searched for conch shells on the beach at the North end of the island of the land vortex area, and then a musical celebration at dinner performed by US!


Everyone getting their crowns on and their party favor whistles and jokes out, as the party begins! – Melissa, Don, Brian, Philip, Cassie, Steve

Yes, we had a whistle fest playing Christmas carols and Happy Birthday on our whistles from our Christmas crackers that Jenny had gotten us. What a celebration and hilarious fun we had – gold crowns on each of our heads and all! We even prepared our Happy Birthday whistle song for one of our lovely group members, Kate, who had taken some time for herself, since this day – 12/21/12 – was her birthday! (We actually celebrated two birthdays during this week – Kate’s and Melissa’s. Melissa’s was the 15th and the start of our week and Kate’s ended the week) So the night of 12/21/12, amidst hysteria, we got ready to surprise her at breakfast the next morning with our whistle serenade! Yes, we did video/record it. It hasn’t surfaced yet though to share!

Philip with his Christmas tree creation

We were also blessed by our very own Bimini-chic Christmas tree, compliments of Jenny and Philip. Jenny had the vision and laid out the instructions and Philip implemented and perfectly created the manifestation of her vision. So we got the chance to enjoy a little pre-holiday celebration before hitting the holidays back home. And what a gorgeous little tree it was all decorated in white lights, beaded seahorses and sparkly puffer fish that danced in the wind. I enjoyed helping Jenny decorate with the beautiful ornaments she had picked up before heading over to Bimini and then later in the week we each added our personal ornaments – a shell we found on the beach that we wanted to represent us, with an intention we placed inside of it written on paper to send out to the Universe, then placed on the tree. Jenn even got the idea for us to decorate one special large conch with our personal symbols on it in gold marker, and so we did and that also went with the tree. A very special Christmas that will remain in our hearts, as will the entire experience, and each other.


My blue and pink love thread

On our last evening Jenn also read us the poem I began this post with, my answer: we, which moved us all to tears and then gifted us a long rainbow thread we stringed around the table, held by each of us. She had us cut between each person and then we each were left with about a foot long thread of unique color – perfectly mirroring our essence synchronously – that we then had tied around our wrists to connect us in this circle of love always. We then had each person tie a knot in the strings that hung from them so as to bind a piece of our hearts together. Jenn was always full of meaningful and powerful Shaman rituals and ideas.

Yes, many priceless moments and gifts of heart received on this journey. More than can possibly be expressed here.


Last breakfast with the group before parting – all wearing our crowns from our Birthday whistle serenade to Kate

When the rest of our group parted ways on 12/22, it was a bitter sweet closure to a perfect week that was written in the stars. So much growth, love, empowerment and transformation was experienced, and this will continue to integrate and unfold as each individual of the group settles into life back home and embarks on a new journey and reality imbued with the energy received.

It definitely is a soul shock to enter back into “civilization” as we know it when you leave an experience and place of timelessness like this, much like leaving one dimensional realm and world reality to enter into another. So the transition is one to gently honor and nurture so as to integrate back into balance.


The group watching the sunset together on the boat

Sacred journeys like this are powerful evolutionary experiences uniquely relative to the individuals and group that come together. The potent energy of a sacred area, coupled with intention, support, and open hearts, can have profound effects on your life and in direct reflection, on the collective since everything is connected.

So much takes place on deep and etheric levels that aren’t fully comprehended by the mind, nor do they have to be. Yet, the proof is in the pudding (LOL! – side joke for the group), as they say. You won’t fully grasp the magnitude of growth received, as in many ways the shifts seem subtle (as is the new way to move through things more easily now) and you come to realize how you’ve surpassed huge obstacles so gracefully, simply resulting in you just living it. This makes it challenging to even see how far you’ve come since it all takes place so much more naturally. Yet, if you stop for a moment and review your life, even just weeks or months earlier, you’ll find much to honor in yourself for how much you have grown and changed.


Brian at sunrise

As a facilitator, it is easier for me to observe the transformational shifts that take place, as my focus is on subtly supporting this process energetically and otherwise. It is amazing to experience the emergence of butterflies at all different stages of birthing.

There is also always a sense of family that is created on these journeys, or a realization of how so not alone you are in your experiences, as you come to hear others stories mirroring your own. These gatherings always bring the perfect synergy that is a synchronous reflection of your needs.


Don reading before dinner – he would always share great insights from the plethora of wisdom he has

And of course there is the opportunity to stretch yourself beyond the limitations you thought you had and to adventure out into new and enlivening experiences into the manifestation of your visions you had only until now just dreamed.


Beautiful starfish in the aqua and energy infused waters

Mirroring the beauty that each person brought to the experience and further blossomed into by end of the journey, was the magickal and exquisite beauty of everything around us – the crystal clear, warm aqua waters, the private pixie dusted sand beaches (a rock and shell collector’s dream), stunning ocean beings that dance through the waters (tropical fish, sting rays, sea turtles and of course our masterful dolphin friends), awe-inspiring sunsets and sunrises that are an ethereal display suited for the Gods and Goddesses, crystal clear starry and moon filled nights that beckon you into the Cosmos and help you realize your roots and balance with Earth, and gently powerful energy that consumes you nurturingly like a swaddled baby and helps you realize there is no limit to who you are and what you can do.


An angelic and cosmic gateway (view from The ARC) the morning of our departure on 12/22/12 after a powerfully transformative week spent in the Atlantean energies of Bimini with amazing souls. This photo captures the essence of the beauty that resounded within and without and captured rainbow hexagon orbs and more surrounding the Sun. Many were present to assist the activations for the rebirthing ♥

This could be the neverending story, but at least for sake of this post and for not drawing things out more than I already have, I will put closure to this memorandum. The experience will remain in our hearts eternally and the energy each brought back will continue to touch all those we come in contact with in beautifully emanating ways, as love is the most infectious energy you can share.

To all who were part of this journey, I wish you continuation of the love and empowerment you feel and look forward to hearing about how your life and endeavors unfold. Deepest gratitude, honor, respect and love to each of you for your courage and beauty.

And to all who may one day join on future journeys, I look forward to experiencing the beauty you bring forth and to witness the unfolding of wings, as the flight of butterflies continues. More sacred retreat and workshop announcements to come.

Where ever you go, there you will be. The journey of the heart always leads back to you.

In Love and Magick,


I hope you enjoy this collage of memorable photos from the trip. Remember to click on all of the photos in this post to enlarge for detail. Photos by me, Allison, and a couple by Brian and The ARC.

Happy Full Moon in Cancer – The Last Full Moon of 2012

Full Moon

Image from Full Moon Transmissions:

This is another powerful Full Moon we are experiencing today, December 28, 2012. As always, the effects of the Full Moon can be felt on the days surrounding it, both approaching and trailing off.

This is a powerful time to finish and release all that you have been working with in 2012 and focusing on this month with the star gateways, in releasing all the old, the past, and moving through fears and emotional baggage that have kept you in bondage. This is a time to fully free yourself and fully begin to trust and believe in the power of you.

Because this is the closest full moon to the December solstice, this moon carries the name Long Night Moon in the Northern Hemisphere. In the Southern Hemisphere – where the days are long and the nights are short – perhaps we could call it the Short Night Moon.

The last Full Moon of the year is occurring in the sign of “nesting” Cancer, which puts an emphasis on home, family, emotions, and security concerns. It is a time to gain greater awareness on how your personal life impacts your professional life, and vice versa, while working towards harmonious balance between the two.

Full Moons are times of release for all things no longer serving you to fall away in order to achieve your desired intentional state. This “emptying out” phase may be even more pronounced right now, as this Full Moon opposes “purging” Pluto and squares “tranformational” Uranus.

This Full Moon also trines “responsible” Saturn and “wounded healer” Chiron, two very wise masters who are present to support you in fully purging and putting to rest our old emotional baggage, so you can joyfully continue on with your soul’s journey, unencumbered. 

Here are some key points about this last Full Moon of 2012 from’s recount of several astrologer’s readings on the energies we are working with now. For the full post, please see the link.

Be receptive to healing
There will be exposure and illumination of whatever is decaying or falling apart so it can be cleansed
Practice being responsible for how you emotionally react to things or situationsBe mature enough to fulfill your need(s) with the help of Soul and the Divine.
Allow whatever is meant to be exposed to be revealed you can face it head on and move forward.
We want to be proactive versus reactive.
It is crucial to take time for yourself.  Meditate.
World Peace starts with us.
each soul is learning form their own choices.
release the past.
we must first change ourselves.
We are the empowered onesWe can choose peace.
choose NOT to respond to what is without love.
only reflects back what is loving and caring.
never criticizes or feels rejected by the lack of love in others.
forgive the limits of others
there’s time to soften, to come to deeper understandings.
if you feel isolated, reach out
Be alert to revelations
drink in more love.
introduce “Divine Mother energy” into the magnetics of situations

Meaningful and Heart Warming Christmas Symbolism

rainbow-circleI want to wish everyone a magic and love filled day. Remember to carry the light of love and heart of giving throughout your life that you feel and share on this day, as every day can embody the magic of Christmas when you embody its essence.

I hope you enjoy the following information that sheds some reflective perspectives on the symbolism of the Christmas Star and that the quotes and song below will warm your heart and touch the precious child within that you are.

Christmas Symbolism by Avia Venefica of

Christmas symbolism, in my view, is rooted in the presence of Light. Whether it’s the Christ light, or the Sun light returning back to our focus with the lengthening of days – to be true – this time of year (around the winter solstice) is a time to “See the Light.”

This time of year marks the least amount of light shining upon the northern hemisphere of the earth. Each consecutive day after the winter solstice is a day imbued with promise because the sun lingers just a wee bit longer. And although the grips of winter are still firm and often cruel, the promise of lengthening Light insures hope will be restored (crops will flourish once again, warmth is a promise just around the bend).

In the spirit of renewal, and welcoming the Light of Understanding and Inner Illumination, here is some thoughts on the symbolism of the Christmas Star.

Stars are commonly seen this time of year, and for lots of good reasons. We know of the North star that guided the Magi to the infant Christ as the story goes. But more spectacular is Orion who is positively radiant at this time around the winter solstice. Orion is a great hunter god in Greek mythology who was blinded by Oenopion after Orion raped Merope (Oenopion’s daughter). Later, Orion cast his sightless eyes to the east on the isle of Lemnos where the healing rays of the sun restored his vision. This is symbolic, and germane to our ongoing exploration of the theme of renewal, illumination and clarity in vision during this divine season. Looking eastward to the dawning sun is akin to awaking our soul-vision to the potential dawning within us. And, as the Sun is the greatest star in our solar system – it is also considered a macro of the great matrix…our soul is its counterpart – the miniature replication of the Sun. Pretty intense – and worthy of some contemplation during this most auspicious time of year.

And here is some more information from Thais Campos from her article: Meaning and Symbolism of the Christmas Star: (see link for more symbolism she shares)

The Star of Bethlehem and the Astrological Symbolism of the Christmas Star

It is said that when baby Jesus was born, a star led the three magi to the birth place of the little Messiah. According to the ancient mystery schools, an astronomical conjunction in specific periods of history is usually associated to the birth of a great master – someone who can lead the masses towards spiritual growth.

At each new cycle that humanity goes through, a few leaders are expected to be born in different countries, in a limited space of time (a few thousand years). So, the birth of these enlightened creatures could be predicted by astrologers at that time, when the magi still dominated the art of astrology in its original form.

These masters (or avatars, according to Hindu tradition) represent the human ideal, men who have been successful in the journey of the soul towards ascension, and became conscious of their role in the maintenance of the universal laws.

The Christmas star, then, symbolizes these leaders who have achieved the human ideal through many incarnations – when the mind (principles, moral virtues, philosophical values, etc) has finally dominated the body.

Memorable quotes from How the Grinch Stole Christmas

He puzzled and puzzed till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before. Maybe Christmas, he thought… doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas, perhaps… means a little bit more!

And what happened, then? Well, in Whoville they say – that the Grinch’s small heart grew three sizes that day. And then – the true meaning of Christmas came through, and the Grinch found the strength of *ten* Grinches, plus two!

Welcome, Christmas, bring your cheer. Cheer to all Whos far and near. Christmas Day is in our grasp, so long as we have hands to clasp. Christmas Day will always be just as long as we have we. Welcome Christmas while we stand, heart to heart, and hand in hand.

Welcome Christmas

The Spirit of “Joy” and Christmas Magick – Celebrations of the Heart

Magickal ChristmasHaving just returned on 12/22 from our amazing journey in the powerful energies of Bimini at The ARC – Atlantis Rejuvenation Center – I can think of no better way to integrate the energies than to immerse in the magick of Christmas Eve.

I will be sharing my feelings and experiences about our journey this week (as much as I possibly can, as the experience leaves one speechless), in Bimini and over 12/21/12, but for now am settling in, integrating, experiencing overflowing love and gratitude, and being very present with the beauty of today.


The adorable and precious birthday girl, Joy, this morning on her 9th birthday.

Not only is today, or rather this evening, one of my most cherished nights of the year (if not my favorite), but this day also holds a very special and precious place in my heart because it shares a celebration of the birth of my dear soul companion, Joy.

Today is sweet Joy’s birthday. She celebrates 9 years of this Earthly life’s cycle. Joy carries with her the energy of purity, joyous love, gentle power, tenderness, serene wisdom, and childlike laughter and wonder.

Happy Birthday my beautiful precious Jewel of the Nile (aka Tiny, Jules, and Bubbles). Joy’s full name is Joy Julianna, which is where Jules comes from and Jewel.

According to an ancient Sardinian legend, the bodies of those who are born on Christmas Eve will never dissolve into dust but are preserved until the end of time. ~Grazia Deledda 

Joy’s essence and love is eternally in my heart and soul 🙂 What a blessing she is to my life.

The energy of what Christmas Eve is all about SO mirrors Joy’s essence and what she brings to my life. Joy to the World indeed!!!

I have always had a soft spot for the Christmas season…the colorful twinkling lights, decorations, smells, trees, magickal animals, elves, Santa, snow, cozy fires, glowing candles, bright stars and starry nights, Christ Consciousness energy, and LOVE abound! It’s one of those times that reminds us of connecting with our inner child, to dream and believe, to see through eyes and hearts of wonder, share our love with everyone in peace and harmony, and recognize the beauty in and around us.

Tinkerbell Christmas wishesSending love to each and every one of you at this joyous holiday season and much love and snuggly hugs to my beautiful Joy.

And here are some words to reflect on that I shared today on Facebook:

Christmas Eve was a night of song that wrapped itself about you like a shawl. But it warmed more than your body. It warmed your heart… filled it, too, with melody that would last forever. ~Bess Steeter Aldrich

May the loving melody of today resound eternally in your heart ♥

The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below,
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny reindeer….~From Twas the Night Before Christmas

May you always believe, have the courage to dream, and may the Christmas Eve magic and child like wonder be with you all year round ♥

Today’s Daily Thought from Shakti Gawain’s Reflections in the Light: Daily Thoughts and Affirmations:

~ The spirit of giving ~

Take a few minutes to reflect on how you give of yourself to the world. Often we get caught up in the frenzy of buying and giving things. Look at the ways you give appreciation, friendship, energy, time, love, and affection, and give of your special talents and abilities throughout the year. Acknowledge yourself for having enriched the lives of others. Spend some time loving yourself for the giving light that you are.

I honor myself for all that I give.

Christ Consciousness is the growing human recognition and blending of the human evolutionary (or ego) mind with the Divine Mind and the Divine Personality that is the source of human happiness and fulfillment. This awareness accrues over time within the consciousness of human thinking when intention, attention, and openness is focused on knowing who and what is that “christed” state of being—that higher mindedness of enlightenment.

As this awareness in the human mind grows and strengthens, life becomes more liberated, joyful, peaceful, and love-dominated. The fear which creates isolation and despair begins to diminish in thought and feeling. You are free to live the life you were born to live — as a child of Spirit in a love-filled and supportive universe. ~Center for Christ Consciousness

This is Your Time – Early 12/21/12 Wishes


Visions of Atlantis by Tania Marie

As I make final preparations to depart tomorrow on a journey that’s been in the making for longer than can be accounted for by standard time calculations, I am feeling many things at opposite spectrums all at once – excitement, nervousness, strength, vulnerability, emotions, release, embrace, high and low energy, but most of all it is culminating in a greater sense of peace, trust and love.

Tomorrow I will be heading out for the first leg of our journey to Bimini and the Atlantis Vortex where our group will be working with the 12/21/12 Winter Solstice and Stargate energies in support of creating a new collective reality, activated through our hearts.

Between 12/16 and 12/22 I will be away on this retreat with 16 other beautiful souls. The 17 of us will be immersed in the energy of aqua waters and sun, dolphin brothers and sisters, Reiki, raw vegan foods, yoga, meditation and heart connecting to not only activate personal empowerment, but to assist collectively in shifting energy vibrations into a new state of being. We come together to courageously face truth, fears, and integrate deep healing, so as to find the power and wisdom at the core of our hearts.

This will be the last post until I return. I will be offline starting tomorrow until 12/23/12. So if you have any questions or requests, please understand I will not be able to be in contact until the 23rd. You can direct all inquiries to

Once in a Blue Moon by Tania Marie

I want to wish everyone an amazingly beautiful 12/21, shared in the way that most befits your heart resonation.

I also wish everyone a beautiful holiday season.

I look forward to connecting with all of you on this powerful day in the ethereal realms and will share upon return, of the experiences that took place while we were connecting.

I know everyone is exactly where they need to be and that we will all be connecting at the collective soul level in co-support and co-creation of the highest good in both Earth and Cosmic alignment.

I am grateful to be able to assist this shift of ages and to support in the ways I am able to give in service. Thank you to all of you for showing up and being here right now.

The time for a return to natural harmony is here. Everything you need is, and always was, in your heart. You simply need to trust and believe.

Those who really know me, know that I am a child at heart and that while I may have complexities and feel and think deeply, it always seem to channel through me in simple ways. As truly I believe that it is only we that make things complicated. And in honor of that little girl who is moved by the simple things 🙂 I wanted to share this very pure song’s message that has a meaningful place in my life, of which I will save for another story.

I feel the message is very appropriate for where we are at and simply shares the powerful things to drive home to your heart right now if you are feeling doubts, challenge, or fear.

This is your time. You are powerful beyond measure. Believe it to be so.

In Peace and Love

12/12/12 – My Thoughts for You

Galactic Butterfly

Galactic Butterfly – Hunab Ku close up from my painting “Spirit” from the In Lak’ech series

Today is the first stargate of the month – 12/12/12 – which provides energies of intense purification for renewal and creating new realities. I will be taking time today to go within and create my own sacred ceremony for personal and collective integrative healing support, along with supporting several people who had joined in on my offer of a Reiki Healing Attunement on this powerful day.

Last night, as I was finalizing some preparations for the group joining our upcoming Bimini journey over 12/21/12, I was guided to write a few words to share with them. This morning I feel guided to share some of them here as well, as they speak to all of us I feel:

I wish for all of you to have a beautiful 12/12/12. If you are able to spend some time within, in meditation, or doing something intentful in the way that resonates for you, this would be of great benefit, not only to yourself, but collectively, and in preparation for the journey ahead that we are taking together, as we walk through the next and final gateway of 2012, on 12/21/12.

Now, up until, and on 12/21/12 is an opportune time to feel your strength, center in your heart, find balance in your life, anchor and ground, be ready for clarity, reveal truth, and be willing to free yourself from fears. Your courage to face them and release them will reward you tenfold for the experience you are intentfully creating.

Make a commitment to be one with and honor your Higher Self through your heart center. The voice of truth and wisdom is always in your heart and your intellect will teach you the discernment. This centered mind/heart connection is the key to understanding how to reclaim your power.

Your attitude towards responsibility will shape your experiences and have an impact on the synergy of personal and collective coming together in service to all of humanity and all of creation.

This is a powerful experience that each of you have chosen to embark on and you will be walking your path with higher vibrations at the culmination of it.

I am heart and soul grateful to be walking this experience of life on Earth at this time, with each of you, and honor your courage to embrace this journey. It means a tremendous amount to me to be assisting such a powerfully transformative time in human evolution and in the evolution of Earth in this divinely Cosmic unfolding.

You have everything you need within you. You are unlimited.

In Love 


Persimmon Exploring, Enjoying & Enlightening – Not Only are They Delicious but Offer Tons of Health Benefits Too!

persimmonsThe last couple of weeks I’ve been creating a lot of new dishes for dinner, feeling inspired and creative, even amidst all the busyness. Perhaps it is my creative outlet for now, since I haven’t had time to paint with all that is going on and the preparations for our upcoming 12/21/12 trip in Bimini.

I’ve also been introduced to the yummyness of persimmons these last couple of weeks, since our persimmon tree is abundant and harvesting has taken place over the past two weekends. I’m very grateful for such amazing trees that yield tons of fruit. Our tangerine was the little tree that kept a-giving and that goes for our persimmon and apple tree as well. Over the last two weekends we’ve gotten about 300 persimmons and there’s still more on the tree and some that we didn’t catch in time.

persimmon juice

Prepping to juice!

It’s quite a large tree so it yields more than our apple tree, but for the size of the apple tree it sure is a giver too. I’m excited to try the kumquats when they are ready next time (that tree is huge and abundant too in its season), and can’t wait for the new planted fruit trees of peaches, lemons, and oranges to mature. Our tangerine tree is already in preparation again with little fruits forming all over.

Needless to say, it’s been a persimmon fest here and there’s been a lot of juicing going on, persimmons in salads, and persimmons au naturale, plus a lot of care-packages given away, as one can only use so much persimmons. If it weren’t that I’ve had decreased time to play in the kitchen, I’d be exploring tons more persimmon recipes. I did make a persimmon dessert, which was a cake turned crumble recipe by accident, but accidentally was delish. lol! It left the house smelling like cozy holiday spices.

However, the persimmon curry soup, persimmon oatmeal cookies, fresh persimmon salsa, and Indian persimmon pudding recipes that sounded amazing, will have to wait until I return from this trip, as one can only do so much! Persimmons can be eaten raw, cooked or dried.

I just finished juicing another 50 or so persimmons. Last time I first juiced pure persimmons and found it to be amazing. Never had it. Love it. But since there were a ton of apples, I juiced them too and mixed together, which created a sweet nectar. Yum!

Today I juiced all of the persimmons I had left and made two different types. One is a mix of persimmons with a little bit of apples and ginger. The other is persimmons with ginger, orange and coconut water. Both taste fabulous.

I guess I’ll be drinking a bunch of juice this week along with my other healthy meals I had planned, before heading out. Seems perfect for the current energies and trip preparation.

Some consider persimmons to be a super food and in a comparison of apples and persimmons, because of the higher contents of fibers, phenolics, minerals and trace elements, persimmons are thought to do more to reduce the risk of heart disease than apples. See: A Persimmon A Day Could Be Better For Your Heart Than An Apple

I decided to look up the nutritional benefits of persimmons, not knowing anything about them, and found this great info on them from  (check out link for the full information on persimmon fruit nutrition facts):

persimmon and apple juiceHealth benefits of persimmon fruit

  • The fruit is low in calories (provides 70 calories/100g) and fats but is rich source of dietary fiber.
  • Persimmons contain health benefiting phyto-nutrients flavonoid poly-phenolic anti-oxidants likecatechins and gallocatechins as well as important anti-tumor compound betulinic acid. Catechins are known to have anti-infective, anti-inflammatory and anti-hemorrhagic (prevents bleeding from small blood vessels) properties.
  • Fresh permissions contain anti-oxidant compounds like vitamin-A, beta-carotene, lycopene, lutein, zea-xanthin and cryptoxanthin. Together, these compounds functions as protective scavengers against oxygen-derived free radicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS) that play a role in aging and various disease processes.
  • Zea-xanthin, an important dietary carotenoid, selectively absorbed into the retinal macula lutea in the eyes where it is thought to provide antioxidant and protective light-filtering functions; thus, helps prevent “Age-related macular related macular disease”(ARMD) in the elderly.
  • They are also a very good source of vitamin-C, another powerful antioxidant (especially native Chinese and American persimmons; provide 80% of DRI). Regular consumption of foods rich in vitamin C helps the body develop resistance against infectious agents and scavenge harmful, pro-inflammatory free radicals.
  • The fruit is good in many valuable B-complex vitamins such as folic acid, pyridoxine (vitamin B-6), thiamin…etc. These vitamins act as co-factors for numerous metabolic enzymatic functions in the body.
  • Fresh Persimmon fruits also contain healthy amounts of minerals like potassium, manganese (15% of DRI), copper (12% of DRI), and phosphorus. Manganese is a co-factor for the enzyme, superoxide dismutase, which is a very powerful free radical scavenger. Copper is a co-factor for many vital enzymes, including cytochrome c-oxidase and superoxide dismutase (other minerals function as cofactors for this enzyme are manganese, and zinc). Copper is also required for the production of red blood cells.

Fruits and veggies does the body good!

Auspicious Completions – Message on the Accelerated Reality You Are Becoming

Image: Artist UnknownThis post comes from Peggy Black and her Morning Messages. Peggy and her “team,” as she refers to the loving guides that channel through her, share beautiful, simple and loving messages I enjoy reading, as they always are mirroring of what I experience or receive. Perhaps you will also find some connection with the message in terms of what you are experiencing currently, or insights on the shifting energy of these upcoming stargate portals and energies.

_________ Message from the “team”_________ 

Auspicious Completions
Peggy Black and the “team”

We are here to honor and celebrate the auspicious cycle of completion. We invite you to stand proud in the awareness that you have been and you are a powerful link of consciousness in this unfolding evolution.

You are on the cusp, the threshold of the grand beginning, the ascension of consciousness within the collective. We acknowledge the many experiences that you have anchored on this timeline in order to seed the coming reality. We acknowledge your continued willingness to uplift and transform any denseness and unconscious behavior.

There is much chaos, shifting and change occurring on all fronts on your reality. Yet we invite you to stand strong in the midst of all that is surfacing and own your multidimensional awareness to transmute the field of vibrations creating the event.

Each individual star being is here on purpose to expand their own conscious understanding by experiencing this dense physical reality and dimension. Those of you reading these words know and recognize who you are.

Allow us once again to acknowledge you for your courage and firmness of purpose as you offer a personal and unique expression of the Divine.

We celebrate with you as the coming days offer powerful portals, or stargates as it were, which allow you to anchor this new energy of a higher dimension into the field of all possibilities, bringing consciousness from a state of polarized opposites to a field of non-duality.

Ascension is the act of knowing and embodying a spacious state of non-duality from your multidimensional awareness at the same moment as you are physically focused in a reality which is polarized, holding both these truths in your expanded state of being.

Ascension is the ability to move from one conscious dimension and state of awareness into another with incredible ease and skill. This is your task, your opportunity in the coming days, years, and decades. By your choice you are on a sojourn with humanity in partnership with the conscious energies of this planet you call Mother Earth.

This galactic completion of cycles is to be celebrated; however it is truly only the beginning. Once humanity steps across this threshold, all does not change instantly.

There will be a quickening that many will experience, codes of consciousness will be activated, and awareness will expand. Welcome and anchor all that is being offered into your personal field of energy as well as the collective consciousness of humanity. Hold firm to your experience as the true physical chalice allowing expanded states of awareness to be seeded.

Consciousness is the inherent aspect of all nature and its foundation. In the coming new cycle this will be acknowledged and recognize by all. There will be a renewed partnership with all living things, with all sentient beings. This partnership will offer you and all living things a fresh and renewed alignment with honor, integrity, honesty and compassion. The true energy bridge for this alliance and cooperation is the expression of your heartfelt gratitude and appreciation for what is offered by the other.

This renewed reciprocity, this total connection, will offer humanity the invitation to honor wholeness and truly acknowledge and experience oneness. Nature and all living things are interwoven and interconnected. In the coming new cycle more and more individuals will awaken to this realization.

They will become aware that their actions and thoughts truly influence and impact the collective field of consciousness, every time, always. There is no thrown away energy.

This elevated understanding will call forth what has been hidden and unseen concerning your divine partnership with other sentient beings.  When you and others open up to this realization and allow yourself to interface with the nature that surrounds you, all will begin to heal and reconcile.

Nature and all sentient beings have gifts to offer this reality; you will honor and call those forth with salutary benefits for humanity.

You will learn to expand into the spaciousness of non-duality, free of the constrictions of this polarized dimension, allowing yourself to interface with the future and call it forth and anchor it in your now.

You are pure conscious energy, full of potential, force and authority. In the coming times your expansion will amaze and delight you, as you relax into who you truly are as a multidimensional being and what that actually means.

The imposed limitations and restrictions of consciousness you have experienced in your sojourn on this timeline are being lifted. The multitude of gifts, skills and abilities that are yours as pure conscious energy is unlimited. This realization is touching each and every individual in profound and wondrous ways. This is the ascension and you are here with a front row seat and an active part in all that is being revealed.

So we are inviting you to celebrate what has been accomplished and transformed, as well as to welcome what is being offered, all the time knowing that there is more to be done, more to secure.

Your experience of time will continue to shift as there is an accelerated momentum. We invite you breathe into any challenging change, knowing that you are a part of the accelerated momentum as your personal vibration increases. Remember who you are and remember to consistently, with clear intent, use the powerful tools that we, as well as your own guidance, have offered.

You are being invited to master all energy emotions that you are experiencing and to transform, anchor and offer coherent emotional vibrations into the field. You are the inviter, the chalice and the container for all the transformation that is occurring and will continue to occur on your timeline.

There is much information that is being offered about these times of great change, there are fears, predictions and prophecies expressing scenarios that might unfold. We remind you to always go within and question any information you are given, to make sure it resonates as your truth.

We acknowledge that these times are intense as you and your planet begin to shift your vibrational frequency into a higher dimension. This intensity is heralding the grand re-birth, the welcoming of new and expanded realities.

We support you in claiming your empowerment and authentic divine multidimensional Self. All systems are in the process of being reset. So allow yourself to be more malleable and open to all that is being gifted; be kind to yourself and others as you acclimate with these new energies and expanded frequencies.

Remember the power and importance of gratitude, joy and appreciation. These frequencies will support and assist at all times. We embrace you with our gratitude and honor who you are in this adventure of unfolding awareness. Know that you are seen and appreciated for your willingness and courage to be in physical form, especially at this time. The ‘team’
