I write this from the Forest Portal’s surprise Spring snow day, again reflecting how things shift moment-to-moment. Yesterday was special because it marked what would have been Cosmo’s (my sweet rabbit boy) fourteenth Earth birthday and on his day, as I do always with all of my dear ones’ special days, we communed through nature. Our adventure hike in Washoe Indian area was a revisit of one we only introduced ourselves to part of a couple of weeks ago for the first time with intention to complete it.
We decided on a picnic hike (above photo in a field of blooming bitterbrush was our chosen rest spot) for the nearly eight miles of exploration, which not only graced us with a solo journey without seeing a human the whole time, but proved my words before we left to be foretelling of the gifts Cosmo would bring forth for us.
I said out loud to Dave, “I wonder what Cosmo will gift us this time? What messages does he have? What animals might we see, what feather might he leave?” Well, the wildly windy day (feeling like 50 mile an hour winds at times) with a mist of faery rain drops keeping us cool, but never wet, spoke of their own purposeful, timely messages and nurturing alongside the unusual sightings.
The only companions were coyote crossing our path with a black tipped tail, raven flying overhead with a snake in its mouth, and a huge pile of the most gorgeous feathers from a Sooty Grouse with peacock tipped iridescence in gold, bronze, green, blue, purple, and pink but no body, bones or blood around – just stunning plumes. Minutes later I found a longer feather you can see pictured below with the others from a different bird – maybe hawk or osprey?
I knew each sighting was a gift and omen that I was to receive from Cosmo so I honored the bird and wrapped the ones I was called to, gently in my shirt. Being an area the Washoe Indians frequented, created extra reverence for this bird, and the gift Cosmo had brought through the Universe to me. Many Plains Indian tribes used to honor these birds with a Grouse Dance. My dance will be a sacred ritual of intention and creation this week onward, lighting each step with newly infused perspective and energy.
The photos don’t do the colors justice when the sunlight hits them, but I was told I’ll be creating something sacred with these at some point and they are a gift for imagining and manifesting that beauty.
They carry a message of personal power, protection, purpose, centering, grounding, harnessing energy for clearly defined goals, the sacred spiral for vision and enlightenment with the Great Mystery, sacred and rhythmic movement and harmonized dance within Earth’s cycles for higher awareness, creation of selfless beauty, ceasing external movement for inner life realization, and new rhythms, teachings, creations, and rituals to lead you into new dimensions.
Once abundant, grouse are now less prolific, but its feathers sure speak to abundance, beauty, and rituals that bridge Cosmos and Earth. This beautiful being somehow feels like an extended hand of clarity and connection to help me integrate the new and bring through what I’ve struggled with expressing.
And lastly, right before the hike ended three very cosmic-like deer crossed our path and just kept watching us without fear. I thought at first they were all female, but one walked out before they leaped gracefully away and it had tiny antlers growing about three inches or so – a boy! I knew right away this was Cosmo, Joy and Nestor – my rabbit soul family has often showed up in deer form when no one else is around.
In Glacier National Park, two cosmic deer had shown up after Joy’s transition – they were Nestor and Joy, as Cosmo was still with us. Yesterday Cosmo joined the girls and their showing up through the portal of unusual energies and signs felt like they were opening a new doorway for me. There may be some twists and turns as things transform, but a promise invites me – both a new one and a reminder of the old one I made. There’s that sacred spiral that grouse speaks of.
Much of the day reminded me of the adventures we had with Cosmo and Joy while in the Magick Bus for 1 1/2 years – similar vistas, memories popping up of favorite places this reminded me of, that in between-worlds energy, nobody else around, similar sightings including grouse and cosmic deer, and strange but interesting weather.
I’m still reflecting on the messages of these signs he sent, as there feels to be a story he’s sharing through them of things upcoming. A spiral dance in motion of bringing me back to center.
I also received clarification yesterday around another change. Cosmo has a very clear way of coming through since he departed on Halloween/Samhain when the veils are thinnest.
Although I won’t regularly be teaching Reiki anymore, it came through that I can and will offer just one class per each level of Reiki this year.
It might be an ongoing, once yearly offering, but for now it’s something I’ve opened to because of the state of things in the world where energetic upgrades would be beneficial, and due to inquiries both spoken and unspoken. I get a lot of messages from people on the energetic levels, so I’m putting this out there in case it speaks to you.
I’ve created a separate page with some information and how you can register.
I’ll be opening the Reiki training to online availability only, likely via Zoom, but maybe Skype to only 6 participants for each class.
These will not be starting until August, as I need time to focus on current and new projects, as well as the new changes in my life upcoming that Cosmo is also hinting at and conveying importance in timing of.
I have a very busy few months of client sessions, book cover painting for an author, writing, wedding details, record keeping for our side business, and channeling new information coming through in an anchored way. I feel some large changes on the horizon that my current projects are stepping stones toward, which makes them integral to complete.
So, the page will not have specific dates in the months proposed. That is something I will finalize once I see who actually commits to and confirms their participation, as I will then be able to communicate with the group and customize and optimize days and times for the whole.
You’ll have the ability to register with deposit, or in full on the page below.
Please contact me with any questions, to discuss your unique path, and/or individual specific needs at the contact link on this page too, so I can know how to support you best:
FYI: If you contact me and don’t hear back from me in a day or two, please check your spam folder because I’ve had a lot of people find my emails there for some reason. You can also check back with me again in a couple of days if you don’t hear from me and I’ll message you a different way if needed.
What scares you most?
Now, breathe into that fear with all of your heart and explore the perspective that the fear is your most loving, wise teacher that knows your purest potentials, which you have forgotten.
Yes, you ARE that powerful.
I’ve been sharing my gift of sound channeling in a more public way since we’ve been journeying in the Magick Bus and experiencing the ancient energies of the land.
However, this is not a new expression for me, as I’ve been doing it all my life AND LIVES, as well as on sacred journeys and retreats and even focused an intro class on the subject on one of them.
Recently, I knew it was time to reveal it, as it is the essence of who I am and the way to step into embodying that more.
So with vulnerability I have been sharing my voice through several videos and at the start of the year had furthered my studies with intuitive sound, which just reiterated, intensified, and empowered this expression and foundations even more.
If you’d like to learn a little bit more about “sound” here is a blog post I wrote a year ago on the subject:
And if you’ve like to explore the recent videos, to just get a taste of this, here are a few videos you can listen to (each has a paragraph description of how they came about at their links under the video):
So this all leads me to the new offering I spoke about in my May Newsletter this month.
Down the road I may teach more in depth on this subject, but for now the most resonant thing for me feels to be able to offer this gift to others and is currently the only service I am offering (other than the spontaneous creative inspirations like the Magick Stones that pop up as guided) since it feels most aligned at this time.
I am offering personalized sound channelings for individuals.
These will include a video share with your sound healing message, which can be for a specific focus/intent in your life, or simply as a current signature resonance to support you into more fully embodying your essence and moving through challenges to get you to the next step along your journey.
It could also be for specific help with things like opening, clearing, and balancing a particular chakra, channeling the essence of elements in Nature or Cosmic frequencies, deep cellular shifts with traumas, supporting a new path you are trying to manifest, opening you to more creative inspiration, clarity, or courageous commitment and strength, receiving nurturing and love needed from the reflection of your inner child, working through releasing, tapping into your ancient soul, etc.
You simply bring to me your desires and we’ll tap into the essence reflection of that via sound.
I tune in to the essence of your energy and allow sound to move through me that is at the frequency needed to help support the shifts.
This will shift, as you shift, and no two sound channelings will be alike, although may have similarities due to frequency resonance…as sound is ever-evolving from creative impetus and power of the now reflective moment.
At times this can be musical, other times more like toning, or a combination. Sometimes it may sound like another language or chants. And it isn’t always what you think of as “beautiful”, although always comes from a benevolent and pure expression of All That Is moving through me to you…to help awaken and activate the latent pieces of your soul and DNA.
What you receive from me is a personal sound video, which you will be able to listen to over and over, as needed. This could be one song…or may need a layering of more than one. I will ascertain that when tuning in. I may have crystals or other shamanic accompaniments, which will be explained in either the video or an email you’ll receive from me with your video that may feel to be part of creating the field of energy to support the channeling. And as always, Reiki energy and a lot of love will be woven and infused into the sound offering.
In the future, I may make available MP3’s and/or CD/DVD’s of sound channeling for specific energy frequencies and meditational or facilitation purposes.
To receive your own personalized sound channeling and signature songs to help you to integrate healing on deeper levels, strengthen your self-empowerment, support movement of energy to the next step or leap, and open portals of experience that activate and balance your chakras into more alignment with your essence as an expression of All That Is, you may partner in this offering here:
Once I have received your sound channeling request, I will email you to discuss the intent for your personal sound channeling. So please make sure to include the email address you’d like to be contacted by, in your order or in the comment section of the invoice.
You may also gift these to a loved one, in which case, please provide me any needed information on that request in the comment section of the invoice as well.
I have also created a separate page link on my blog that you can visit with this same information, at any future time you may desire support with something else, as listed above and not limited to what you see here.
Here is the link to that page:
“The sound that came from you, while you were in the sarcophagus of the King’s Chamber, is something I will never forget. I’m getting vibed right now. What came out of you was magical, mystical, angelic……. Words fail to pain the experience. I’m truly honored for the experience.” ~Michael, Arizona
“When you were Singing, it was one of the most Wonderous and Powerful things I witnessed the whole trip on our sacred journey in Peru–WOW! The energy you were bringing through was so Pure and Beautiful. You were definitely the pinnacle of the Triangle that day! I am Honored to have been able to support you in that moment. I am still filled with Gratitude and Awe for everything that happened!” ~Christopher, Montana
I had some inspired thoughts to share today in continued theme of things I’ve been guided to express and realized that one of the latest sacred tattoo designs I created embodied the inspiration of the energy behind these messages – symbolically that is.
So, while I’m not sharing individual symbolism on the designs anymore, due to lack of time to expound on all of that, perhaps viewing this design while reading today’s share will activate something for you, as these designs are created as portals of embodiment and activation to energetically support the person wearing them and the people experiencing/seeing them.
While personal and custom-created for the individual who will wear them, they always carry significant collective symbolism as well, since we are all connected and going though similar, but relative journeys.
I’m calling the above design “Secret Garden of You” and let me just say there is more than meets the eye in this powerful personal gateway we’ve co-created, equipped with its own guardians/sentinels and several enchanted beings from the magickal realm speaking their medicine, not to mention a lot of interwoven and layered symbolism.
It was a piece that challenged both my client and I, especially so in execution to work with the footprint desired for it to weave into, but also in energetic translation, having only a few guidelines. It was in part inspired by the seven days of the morning reading for Lughnasadh Celtic Devotional by Caitlin Mathews shared with me by her in combination to tuning in to the energy behind her words, as she shared what was desired to be created for this next leg of her journey. An exciting and beautiful new birthing indeed!
But on to today’s messages, which are a compilation of short reminders weaving a tapestry for empowered, authentic living – much like the tapestry of symbolism this and all other sacred tattoos I’ve created, do.
They remind us of the sacredness within ourselves and the wisdom and truth we each have available to access at any given moment.
It’s important to make a commitment to yourself, which means listening to your feelings every moment and acting on what’s authentic and right for you presently – be your truth in all its splendor. Others will thank you for it even if they don’t say so, but more so, you’ll be astounded by how life becomes more enriching when you don’t worry about being vulnerable and what others think.
You’re NOT responsible for anyone else’s happiness. Each person must choose their own story. Only they, like you, can choose how to feel in any given moment.
We each have the ability to write a new story whenever we realize that power to do so.
Remember that if you want something from others, give it to yourself first and you’ll get it back in the way that is for the highest good without dictating how that needs to be or look.
Face fear with gentle love and curiosity in order to transmute it…look at it, feel the truth of it, retrieve the pieces of your power in it, and watch it dissolve and transform into your gift.
You are not at the mercy of anything, as you do have the ability to choose how to respond and feel, what perspective to embrace about it you desire, as well as what actions you want to take, even if you’re in a situation that seems like one karmically dealt or a bigger-picture collective experience. You can make lemonade from lemons. 😉
You can always look inside of you to ask for, find, and receive the answers. You need to be open and willing, as well as supportive of self-trust as to what subtle nudges speak to you, and open to giving yourself permission to experience more.
As you focus on the things that are good about yourself – your gifts, your strengths, your special qualities – you empower and support yourself to embody it more in a bigger way.
Be aware of how you speak to yourself and others and the image you are creating about yourself when you do. Is it consistent with the person you know yourself to be and are wanting to be more of?
Everything you’ve experienced and the challenges you’ve gone through is, and has been, an attempt by your soul to call in and experience more light in your life…truly it’s not about someone having it in for you. It’s your ingenious soul way of evolving and experiencing the totality of Source through you.
You put yourself in situations that will challenge you to be more loving and compassionate…to go deeper into those unconditionally.
Unconditional love is learning to embody and be that source of love rather than waiting for others to do so and is not subject to what others are doing or not doing.
Fear and triggers are places that our love hasn’t yet been discovered. So, in each moment you can choose to either embrace more fear and pain, or embrace more love. Going deeper into the allowance of feeling those things will create their ability to flow through you, bringing wisdom along that current of embrace.
Your definitions of yourself influence your behavior and experiences. If you don’t like the definition you’ve been experiencing of yourself, start creating a new one and envision it as much in depth as you can possibly go. Write or reflect on an expansive vision of you and continue to expand upon that from a higher, more loving, deeper perspective. The higher and deeper you can go with how you see yourself, the more accurately in fact you ARE REALLY seeing who you are at the heart and soul of things.
You have the ability to know your truth. Honoring that is the greatest gift you can give to yourself and others. It supports and energetically creates a frequency that mirrors what is possible, but also invites opportunity to do the same.
There is a whole secret garden of you, waiting for you to remember, subtly listen to, trust, actively engage, transmute, and support, embrace and sing to the world, and gently and patiently love into harmonious balance, fulfillment, and fruitful, ecstatic abundance.
