I chose the above photo (one of my fav) for this post both because of the energy it holds and the potentials it can unlock. I also love it because it’s of my mom standing by my side in reflection between the paws of the Sphinx in Egypt. I am grateful to have been able to share what was likely the most transformative of sacred travels I’ve taken in this lifetime with her and my dad. We were able to have private time here, and other sacred areas, where the Great Mystery feels extra tangible. Some believe The Hall of Records – an ancient library housing knowledge of the Egyptians in papyrus scrolls – was housed in a chamber below the Sphinx, accessed by a secret passageway (one of a series of shafts inside).
Regardless of what we learned about this from the former Minister of State of Antiquities Affairs, Zahi Hawass, and his incredible colleagues that accompanied us, and what we tuned into and received individually, what I love is the presence of potential standing at this gateway invites – a portal between the giant paws that both guard and beckon the courageous of spirit to let go and explore the vortex that lies center of the heart.
With a New Moon in Aquarius (at 9:46 pm PST on January 31st and 12:46 am EST on February 1st) coinciding with the Chinese New Year of the Tiger on February 1st, my mom’s birthday on January 31st, Imbolc on February 1st (the halfway marker between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox), and Nestor’s birthday (my twin soul in rabbit body) on February 1st, this photo felt symbolically fitting.
The paws reminding me of the tiger (although a lion – still in the large cat family) and ironically, it was on the platform just above the Sphinx before we stepped down from where most tourists only get to stand, for our private time explorations, that I dropped my Hematite rabbit figurine I used to take with me on all sacred travels. This little stone rabbit is the equivalent of a sacred Egyptian statue that honors Nestor’s spirit and came to me so that I could take Nestor in the physical with me everywhere I went so we could grid things energetically with our combined presence, just as much as with our spirits. She enchanted it with her energy and this mini statue remains a vessel for our work to carry on, and for all that we’ve done (and continue to do) together to be part of my everyday on all levels. When I dropped it above the Sphinx, the tiny left front paw broke off and this had powerful meaning and purpose.
It may not be as apparent to you why this is what I felt called to share as the perfect accompaniment to today’s offerings, but in a simplified version of the details I just shared – standing at the precipice of such big transformation, as the photo and that journey opened at the time, speaks to a similar opening taking place now on a different level and to which these workshops are a part of supporting, step-by-step.
It’s about raising the frequency of our vibrations.
Starting in March (likely around or on the Equinox) there will be a new offering of online workshops available that you can either choose to immerse in individually or as a series. These will be pre-recorded, private sessions that you can listen to at your leisure and will be available to return to ongoing for as long as you’d like.
For now I’m continuing to be called to offer only recorded modules, as they seem to fit everyone’s needs more these days, including my own. It can be hard to schedule workshops that support everyone’s time and day schedules, so this provides you the space to work through the sessions when is most convenient to you…even from the comfort of your own bed and in your jammies – my fav! They are also more supportive to me these days with the kind of schedule I’ve been keeping and the need to have full and constant expansiveness.
Although I never know what’s coming next, these latest offerings since the CEDF are all in the vein of a completely new frequency that I’m being guided is important to create space for and facilitate. And while I’ve simultaneously been guided to cut back in all other ways so that I can work on key projects needing to be birthed from my soul signature frequency, these sessions work very well with and are connected to the energy streams in motion. I actually feel that the higher frequency is also why these sessions are being conducted as recordings, to maintain the integrity of the frequency and mitigate potential energy surges that can happen with overloads of frequencies that jumping on technology together could create. It’s enough that nearly every morning my light bulb flickers when I wake up after deep dream time journeying.
I’ve also been hearing great feedback from the Collective Energy Dynamics Forum series that has been ongoing since November, where people have shared how they feel the powerful connection, presence, energy, and personalization as if it’s in real time. This also mirrors just how Reiki works in bridging time and space.
The recordings also make it easier to absorb in your own time, take notes slowly with pauses, and do them in bite-sized morsels that feel nurturing to your specific needs, especially if you’re sensitive to too much time on electronics – something that live sessions can be challenging for – and so that you don’t have to be on “high” energy to fit someone else’s parameters (full expansiveness for you too).
With that said, here is the 3 part series that will be available:
- Everyday Reiki ~ Integrating your skills naturally for daily empowerment
- The Magick of Sound ~ An intuitive approach to integrating ancient voice for fuller embodiment
- Transcending Duality ~ Exploring boundless potentials as we create a new reality
You can register for these and find more details about each workshop at the following link:
You have the choice to register for one, two, or all three workshops. An early registration special is offered for the full 3 part series.
And on a side note, I have a surprise.
Some of The Enchanted Realms Collection will be available again, likely this first week of February, printed in options that will include keychains, tote bags, year-round ornaments, and keepsake box. Before I sent the originals off to their new homes, I took some photos with the idea that I could create printed items from them when I had time to explore this. I finally did and I love how they came out. So, if you had your eye on one of the original pieces, but it was gone before you could decide, you’ll be able to bring one home to you still, but in the form of a unique and fun item perfect for Spring’s leap into fertile potentials! The first run will be ready-to-ship items – just one of each – and if they sell out and you’re still interested, there may be an upcoming option to order more. Please keep an eye out for their availability coming soon.
I was going to wait to post this design, which was completed this past Saturday the 16th of January, but felt it important to share given the collective undercurrents I have sensed in motion especially during the two days prior to finishing it.
I’ve noticed both feeling a big shift has taken place AND seeing it reflected around me in the nature landscapes I traverse here. Everything has a very vibrant, surreal look and the light and color coding it emanates is very different.
The change is a subtle experience of something profound I sense. What that is has yet to be seen, but it’s as if there’s been an opening that’s been cushioned from being something potentially much harsher.
It’s hard to explain, but recent experiences I had and that several friends have shared, all indicate something along these lines and that recreation is at hand.
I find, like many artists of all genres do, that things we work on embody both personal and collective symbolism, especially in the case of creating a deliberate and intentional portal as these sacred designs are in fact.
I never know what is going to come through, but the experience from start to finish – inspirational conception, the process, and the official birthing seal – all carry intentional seeds of activation with ripple effects.
That’s the alchemy of transformation in motion and it’s a wondrous adventure of both personal evolution and collective unfolding.
And that’s exactly what this sacred piece is – pure alchemy of personal and collective as One.
This is the first of its kind in terms of both elements that are integrated into it and how it will be merged with the soul who it was created for.
To say I was honored to channel this sacred design that feels also like a temple vessel is an understatement and because it is for such a pure light of cosmic love – a true soul star sister – made it all the more sweeter. We’ve both been in elated celebration mode since sharing the completed piece together and reflecting on all of the elements and collective connections.
I actually bullet-pointed everything in an email to her and there were sixteen bulletpoints that were each layered too!
I’ll let the intricate details of the design speak for itself to each person who views it. While symbolism is collective, how that translates for each individual is relative and I’d rather it reflect in the way meant for you. Perhaps even, you may sense and receive an activation it holds.
What I will say that I shared with the beautiful soul it was created for is that it is a “cosmic shamanic activation portal with doorways upon doorways being accessed simultaneously. So it’s like a multi-dimensional snapshot of these layers opening….and it’s so huge in energy that I know without doubt that collective is coming through personal in this, as I do feel like a multi dimensional doorway is/has opened and this is like one access point of it that is channeling through your frequency and hence an access point for you, while collectively an access point that is relative to each. If that makes sense.“
So how is it the first of its kind?
Well, beyond the obvious of it likely being the most intricately layered piece I’ve created so far, it holds the very first language of light codes in it that I’ve channeled.
And the next way its unique is that it is not going to be literally tattooed/inked onto the skin, but rather is going to be etherically imbued onto her skin through a cosmic activation we’ll be doing in a sacred ritual together to transfer it on. Think of it as a telepathic transference merging spirit and flesh. A multi dimensional process to create a light code design on her etheric body that will integrate with her human body. It will be felt and experienced by both herself and anyone who she engages with even though not seen with the physical eyes. Sensitives with the gift of extra sensory sight may even “see” it.
The design itself is quite a large piece as well. I made it to the exact measurements, as if it were being literally inked on, as it is important to me that every part of the process is accurate and in place on the physical level because alchemy happens when all elements are present.
It stretches from a little up the back of the neck where the seven pointed star and light codes above are, the thicker part of the top sits near the base of the neck and then flows all the way down over her higher heart, heart, and somewhat extending to solar plexus and across her back.
She’ll also be keeping the design as a meditation portal in her sacred space as a remembrance of who she is and to help access even greater depths and expansive potentials.
I hope you enjoy this little inside look at the latest sacred design that has channeled through during my own expansive time away.
A little gift of light and possibility from the cosmic depths of essence.
And then this message I shared recently on social media to accompany the reflective journey while viewing the portal:
Don’t be afraid to light up your unique energy frequency and step through the doorways opening before you.
You’ve never been more needed than now in the truest expression of you being you.
Don’t be afraid to harness your strength and step into it more fully even if it’s different than what others are doing.
What ever your gifts are… share them.
What lights you up?

This is my second time living in Lake Tahoe, but truly this last nearly year (will be come October) that we’ve been here has been the most explorative and enriching yet. Not only have we experienced the most epic Winter in the last 40+ years, but have been blessed with incredible, like-minded friends, a wonderful and supportively inspiring home base, welcomed in a new family addition (Astrid), experienced a heap load of magick, and have seen many shifts and transitions anchor in with the closing and opening of new doorways of experience.
I’m/we’re seeing more of this area than we ever have in all the time we’ve lived here so far, and are blown away at the discoveries that will take us years to fully experience…not to mention it’s all different within each season. Like right now we get to enjoy the wildflowers and incredible alpine lakes everywhere gushing with waterfalls and creeks. Other times it is the salmon spawning, the beaches, foraging, crystal-rich areas to discover treasures, water time kayaking or swimming, fall colors, white winterlands, but always plenty of outdoor exercise within every season.
It’s continued to be an interesting journey in observing and playing with the energies all around, as well as within. So much diversity and contrast in experiences and realities right?! None of it wrong, right, bad, good, worse, better…simply choices and possibilities. I do find it easy to hover around energies that don’t match how I feel frequency-wise and increasingly experience clarity with things and greater compassion even if things don’t match. Very refreshing for a Pisces who struggled with this all of her life and not knowing how I could still be a me without compromising the love and connection I feel to everything. I have to repeat…this is the most natural and peacefully balanced I’ve ever been and am always in awe of how that can continue to deepen.
Life here on Earth is truly merging and it feels both grounding, but also Cosmically freeing, while I’m seeing and experiencing it for what it truly is. Perhaps some of you are feeling this too?
We’ve been moving energy quickly and manifesting a ton quickly, which is pretty wild how fast stuff has been happening, but when you’re in the “zone” and following the flow of energy, you definitely do experience that incredible alignment. It’s amazing to look back and see how these processes have shifted over the course of your life for sure with putting into motion the things you’ve learned and doing the work.
But truly it’s been such a gift to experience so much of Lake Tahoe and the outlying areas here. There is SO much beauty and we keep discovering hidden gems all the time – not to mention hidden portals to other realities. Never a dull moment or feeling of not having enough choices and things to do on any level, but mostly it’s the Nature time that infuses my heart with inspiration and expansive love.
The energy abound lately has been so potent and fertile. I can’t tell you how powerful manifestations have been and immediate things unfold that are intended. This month’s energies really lend a hand to that, but in general we really are experiencing an accelerated evolution of potential.
And I’m increasingly experiencing how the things I write about in my new book, manifest in the outside world around me. It’s really a wow-factor and nobody would believe me unless they were right here going through it all alongside me.
During all of this I’ve been seeing how the things I envision and intend, because I’m open to the highest version for the highest good of all to manifest (rather than fixating on how that “should” be) are revealing themselves in expansive ways that embody the essence of it all with greater support and all-encompassing benefits.
The photos shared in this post are captures of some of the energy lately that I’ve been experiencing – truly like activations and initiations into this new version of reality unfolding. There are also photos of some of the awe-inspiring beauty of new areas of exploration – one of which reminded me of my other favorite place in Montana and my experiences there.
Portals are opening everywhere! Are you ready to step into a greater version of you and greater possibilities collectively?
I find that the more flexible and open to entertaining any combination of possibilities, the greater fulfillment I feel and find even more support and interconnected threads ready to make things happen.
Gratitude deepens daily and harmony is being remembered from the origin song seeded within.
As promised, I wanted to share a blog purely devoted to our experience of the Crystal Castle & Shambhala Gardens in Byron Bay since there were just too many photos to devote to social media space alone. Although what is felt and experienced in person can never be fully grasped in any one or even 100 photos alone, at least these will give you an idea and feel for what this magickal and potently sacred place is like. It was one of my top three favorite experiences of the trip, although they can’t be compared. It felt incredibly important to be here when we were, which wasn’t planned, but happened to align with the New Moon, as well as timely and important to supporting the manifestations of goals and dreams in our lives.
We visited the Crystal Castle & Shambhala Gardens, getting there right when it opened and we’re so glad we did, as it provided a wonderful time of day and a much clearer space with not many people to share it with. And, as shared, seemed perfect right at the precipice to the New Moon. Incredibly super-charged activation galore took place too! I had no expectations of what we’d find or experience, but it exceeded imagination, as well as ignited it.
We were greeted and embraced by stunning botanical gardens, rainforest, World Peace Stupa, views, Aboriginal mural, labyrinth, enchanted crystal cave, crystal fountain, sound healing, music of the plants experience, crystal matrix, amazing statues, fossils, Damanhur spiral, rose quartz reflexology walk, the biggest and most beautiful natural crystals in the world, and more… all found here.
Everywhere you turn there are crystals galore and I love how they are integrated naturally into the grounds and nature, as if they were always there and which merges Earth and Cosmos so beautifully.
Even the pathways are encrusted with crystals, geodes, and stones in patterns and sporadically, but all intentfully. The labyrinth path is also laden with rose quartz. The whole place is a huge crystal grid and energy center that sends a beam out into the etheric realm for manifestation.
A Faery’s dream world!
Each step taken was with great intent and everything we came upon along our wandering through this enchanted place received a “wow!” from both of us. We engaged every experience pure of heart and full with love and gratitude. I was in such reverence of these crystal giants, ancient ones, Earth and Cosmic historians and record keepers, master beings, sentinels and guardians. And with each labyrinth or spiral walk, turn of a prayer wheel, and communion, I blasted out energy to the collective, as well as more intimately for personal intentions, hopes, and dreams.
I used to only engage in energy focused out to others, but have come to equally voice my own desires for the highest good of all concerned knowing that they are one and the same.
I was amazed, but not surprised, to see the energy captured in the photos (and glad we took them), especially when Dave and I stood between the different sets of Amethyst guardians, as it felt like we were in a vortex, activating a portal, and experiencing the crystal matrix of creation. We were being guided through portal after portal, traversing the Cosmic dimensions, one world into the next, and the next.
I was surrounded by beings of light and I felt the giantness of my own being. I felt as tall as the Amethyst guardians by my side. And they were there to remind me of this actuality.
Chills after chills ran through me and I knew everything was not only possible, but happening now. I felt the incredible love and support surrounding me, and how it is there for us all if we open to it despite not seeing it at times in our lives.
I felt at home. Yes, this was home. These beings were my family….my memories….my heart…my spirit.
I engaged my imagination, creativity, and let myself go wild with dreaming. We both imagined big and were full with inspiration and belief in what we imagined.
Alongside each activation and what also felt like more initiations into the next phase of the journey at a new level, I experienced three manifestations of support and gifts.
While walking the labyrinth, soft, sweet feathers showed up along the path, one after another and another, and as I circled to center and back. Angelic support was all around and the feathers reminded me of letting my heart be free to fly as love guides me to soar on toward my joy and dreams and not be held back by the past, nor dwelling on it. I loved the Buddha and giant Amethyst being that resided over the labyrinth. I spent time after with the both sharing the love.
Then later while walking through the bamboo path, which was like this amazing tunnel opening to doorways at both ends and a statue of Vishnu riding on the shoulders of Garuda – both feeling potent as Vishnu is one of the three most important Hindu gods that supports, sustains, and governs the universe. His role is to return to the Earth in troubled times and restore balance of good and evil…to restore justice and order when they are threatened. And Garuda is the bird-god (birds are so prominent in my life and always gifting me feathers) who represents courage and our higher spiritual aspirations. He is said to have brought the nectar of immortality from heaven to Earth.
Just as I entered this tunnel I looked down and this beautiful bamboo creation appeared on the path directly in front of me. It was woven natural and green bamboo with bamboo woven flower that is like a case to hold pens or pencils. That felt to support my writing and the weaving of words and inspirational ideas into a story, not to mention writing the story of my life’s journey in general.
And the third manifestation was a crystal.
Just after I’d spent time between the two most giant Amethyst guardians (you can see more of their amazing energy manifesting in the photo below), I went to walk in the grass, away from any crystals and suddenly I was called to look down and saw something partially hidden in the grass. I reached down and was amazed to find a quartz crystal cluster. It was nothing like any crystals within the vicinity or even any I’d seen along our wandering throughout at that point. But there it was. And it feels so ancient and Cosmic. It appears to be part of a much larger crystal, as if it was taken from one to be connected to its energy and channel it, but for me to have as a gift. I was in deep gratitude of this gift and it feels like it will be assisting me with things to come.
That night I also had a dream that felt important. Not only did it come after the Crystal Castle experience, but on the New Moon. I haven’t had an extraterrestrial dream for a while (at least that I remember), which in actuality are never “dreams,” but my journeys with them when I’m most able to travel interdimensionally and freely. As a Pisces, my “dream” journeys are potent and where everything important takes place. Much of why sleep is actually a chance to do my most intricate work and why it’s so essential to me to have that time.
Anyway, part of the dream was about my engaging with a group of ET’s…different than ones I can remember working with. I had decoded something that they needed and had been trying to decode themselves for a very long time, but couldn’t figure out. I created symbols that embodied the energy of what I decoded and put them into a ring that reflected this. I can still see the symbolism that was created. And this acted like a portal opener or key to something. I also had images on an old recorder or something that they didn’t want others to get a hold of and see, and although I would never tell or show anyone I knew that meant they wanted me to relinquish them and so I did, to keep it safe. It felt much like I was doing some bridge work that felt important on a Cosmic level. And not surprising with the Cosmic activations of the day.
Also, what I found interesting was that I never feel called to do any sort of physical cleanses anymore, as it just doesn’t resonate and I’ve basically been making shifts on all levels without the need for them anymore. At a couple of junctures along my journey I had done some, especially this one time period of some of the largest shifts into my current path I’ve been on when I did a 180 in my life kind of overnight (but not really if you look at the build up before of work done). That time period also coincided with being 100% raw vegan and feeling I needed a complete reset and boost up several levels, so along with the raw I did several major cleanses. This took me to a new level of experience and clarity. Then over the course of time, since, I balanced and harmonized out.
But for some reason I received the message of one cleanse being supportive at this time, right after I left the Crystal Castle. My sense is that is tied to another sort of reset and anchoring of this new journey I’m on and inviting in/being invited to/stepping into.
I wondered when it would take place, thinking perhaps right when I returned home, but in fact I received that it will begin on Summer Solstice, which also happens to align with when the new bunny love is entering my life and also timely with how the project I’m working on with my writing is lining up in terms of its process. Not to mention, some other things taking place in our lives.
I’m normally not interested in these kinds of things anymore – cleanses that is – but to receive that message when I’m not focused on it, seems like I shouldn’t ignore it and so I embrace this and will begin as instructed. It will be a 10 day cleanse and reset.
So, yes, a lot was ignited and took place with this experience, but also wouldn’t have happened if we hadn’t been in Australia when we were and how it all aligned.
And we also discovered a most amazing, enchanted, magickal mushroom in the gardens that was hidden. Did it manifest just for us like these other gifts? Was it indication of this vortex we’d entered? Was it reflective of our beliefs creating what we see?
I believe it is all of these and more.
I have never actually seen one of these in nature ever – a Faerytale mushroom come to life! If you washed off the dirt you’d reveal more of its white polka dots. What an incredible discovery. There was definitely a portal here, as I actually didn’t even know these really existed except in the magickal realms. Well, I guess I was in one! And it felt to indicate that I’m literally, more and more, living in the world of my own creation and that isn’t the same for everyone although perfect for each of us, as it’s based on our vibrational alignment with belief meeting resonance and reality.
Incredible doesn’t begin to express it all. And gratitude doesn’t either in terms of what I feel toward it all.
These aren’t even all of my photos. I didn’t even capture half of what you can find here. Imagine that!
I imagine everyone has their own individual experience here at the Crystal Castle, just like we all do with everything in life, but I do believe that it will bring to the forefront, reveal, and amplify things for you in terms of your beliefs and has the potential of presenting doorways of experience for you to enter if chosen and ready.
I said yes, again.
A little crystal grid activation and anchoring on this enchanting snowy day of the New Year.
Creating an intentional, Reki charged altar for my creative projects I choose to cultivate, nurture, and manifest for 2017.
I’m leaving the candle to burn all afternoon and evening after gently placing intents in it and releasing them for the result most aligned with greatest good at heart.
Ritual that feels natural to your essence is a symbolic and tangible way of integrating your intents with spiritual potency and focused commitment.
Anything you can do to create sacred space for things will enhance your experiences, bring greater presence to your life, help you to be more thoughtful with what you are choosing to create and with your beliefs around it, and draw in support from more resources you have available to you.
Always remember to release your intentions to All That Is, without attachment to specific outcome, but with intent for it to be for the highest good of all concerned.
You don’t have to be forceful about putting your intentions out there…you simply need to embody what that feels like to have them and to feel and believe it with all of your heart.
Then continue forward with actions that support your intentions, as you are the bridge to getting to the result most in alignment with your essence.
