It has a sound, a fullness.
It’s heavy with sigh of tree,
and space between breaths.
It’s ripe with pause between birdsong
and crash of surf. 
It’s golden they say.
But no one tells us it’s addictive.

People At This Festival Slept On Hammocks Hanging Hundreds Of Feet Above The Italian Alps

All I can say is – WOW!! 

Shared by a friend (thanks David) and reposted from

The International Highline Meeting festival seems like one of the chillest festivals we’ve ever heard of, but it also might be one of the most terrifying – attendees spend most of their time strung up on tightropes stretched across the Italian Alps in Monte Piana.

The attendees call themselves “slackers” because of the slacklines they balance themselves on. This extreme sport differs from tightrope walking in that the rope has a slightly flattened shaped and has slack, meaning that it can move side-to-side or bounce.

Besides the fact that the slackers spend a good part of their days (and nights) on slacklines suspended hundreds of feet above the Italian dolomite Alps, the meeting has all the trappings of a normal festival – a kitchen, a bar, and awesome musical jam sessions. Attendees can also attend a Yoga workshop or take tandem paraglider flights.

Voice of Divine Grace ~ Throat Chakra Sacred Tattoo Design

Sacred Tattoo DesignIt’s always a good challenge to work with a smaller design and within a time constraint, and yet create something potently reflecting the energy desired.

For this latest piece we were focused on creating a simple design for the back of the neck/Throat Chakra that would be supportive of a particular energy my client desired, which she stated as wanting to assist as a “Divine Love filter” to help in expressing herself with greater softness and grace, as well as keep her centered and balanced with her communication. She is also focused on her role as a loving mother, which is most important to her, and wanting all of her relating and communicating through her teaching and relations to be from this Divine place.

Hence the design is a reminder, as well as an energetic imprint to assist a frequency shift for integrating her desires.

As I’ve mentioned before, these designs are quite an intense process for me, as well as my clients, and I have also come to see how their incubation and birthing always mirrors some collective timing of things taking place (astrologically, numerologically, Full and New Moons, seasons, global transitions, etc.).

Not to mention, they have had an effect on others who see them, mirror collective shifts taking place or energetic support collectively needed, as well as have created actual physical portals here in my home where I create them and magickal appearances and experiences that chime in with what I’m drawing as confirmation, as well as tangible evidence of the energy being opened.

And then I’ve later learned of experiences, shifts, visions, and feelings that my clients had while the channeling was underway and when it was completed that mirrored the process and energy.

It’s fascinating to say the least and yesterday’s creation process of this “seemingly simple” little design, was no exception.

It’s all about the intentions and energetic frequencies that are imbued into each part of the drawing, while it is coming to life. So yes, it’s like an encoding of vibrational energies that is happening – much like the dream sequence I described in my post “White Conch and a Dream“.

Anyway, yesterday as I was drawing this, I began my session with some aligned music, which kicked things off and got the drawing underway. Then, something suddenly reminded me that my dear friend Jenny in Bimini was being interviewed on a blog talk radio show and I quickly turned it on to listen to (feeling the energy would be aligned) while completing the design. I thought I’d missed half of it, but I actually tuned in as the host was still warming the show up and was getting ready to introduce my friend.

What happened next was quite interesting. She began talking about Atlantis and the energies connected, as well as her remembrance of things near the end and she then apologized that she was starting to have throat issues and that it wasn’t a surprise given the energy she was talking about – no surprise to me either as Atlantis and Throat Chakra issues are quite common. She then actually had to take about two to three minutes to gather herself, as all you heard was her coughing like crazy in the background. I literally didn’t know if she was going to be able to continue the show, as it was some pretty serious coughing, which I’m quite familiar with.

During this, I was just continuing to draw away and had actually just been working on the Throat Chakra symbol and finalizing it. She was finally able to get herself through the coughing and came back on and managed the rest of the show without anymore coughs. She did bring mention to it again later, but her throat had stabilized.

I thought that was quite an interesting synchronicity, given what I was working on. But this synchronicity continued about 2-3 hours later. As I was getting ready for bed I suddenly was hit with a coughing attack. Now, I am quite familiar with this kind of cough, as for me, it is tied to something I ate that my body rejects and attacks like an allergy. I try to avoid these things, but sometimes like when eating out or if I’m more lax about it, it just happens. And I’m pretty good at knowing which things will do that. But last night I could not pinpoint what it could have been that I ate. So either it was something new starting to affect me like other foods, or it was simply energetic and tied into this design and the energy accessed.

Needless to say, I was wheezing and coughing like crazy for the next 45 minutes to an hour to the point of coughing up stuff and dry heaving – just like what normally happens with a food reaction.

It subsided after what sounded like me dying, lol, and I was able to peacefully get to sleep, only to wake in the middle of the night to the thought of this “throat connection.”

Empathic? Yes I am…or it was an energetic cleansing in my own throat chakra…or some may say it was just coincidentally a food reaction.

Whatever it was, the timing of it all was very interesting to say the least.

I find it so amazing what can symbolically be imbued into something that “appears” so simple.

At just under 3 inches all around, this design carries a pure, sweet energy that integrates simplicity and potency. The symbolism came to me as I was tuning in to my client and her desires. There had been some things my client was drawn to, but I did not feel that those images and symbols worked for her and her energy. I immediately shared what was coming to me and she instantly shared the synchronous connection she had to the images I was seeing and many stories about how what I’d felt would be good, were so perfectly connected to her life. She hadn’t realized this until I brought up the imagery.

So, we went with the inspiration that had channeled through and she trusted my choices, which ended up matching hers.

The design then came to include a Dove, three Cosmo Flowers, and the Throat Chakra symbol.

I created a Trinity of energy with the Cosmo flowers that not only create the energy of the Triple Goddess and the three phases of the Moon, but the number three is also the Empress card in Tarot – the archetype of feminine power, mother, healing, water energy, creation, creativity, abundance, intuition, emotions, passions, productive action, nurturing, love, harmony, union, sensuality, continual growth, all things beautiful and lush, and Mother Earth.

The three Cosmo flowers create a soft triangle, pyramid, or even a temple-like effect around the dove, illuminating and anchoring her energy. Cosmo Flowers symbolize peace and tranquility, as well as harmony, wholeness, love, order and modesty.

Triangles of course are also about creativity, clarity, a doorway to the extraordinary, higher wisdom (attained by balancing thought and emotion), magick, harmony, balance, ascension, manifestation, illumination, and one of my favorite words – integration (the alchemy of polarities combined that create a new opening). The peak at top symbolizes higher thought, inspiration, enlightenment, oneness of mind, aspiration, focus, and unity consciousness. In this way it helps you focus and center the inner conflicts in order to be in stillness of peace with the wholeness of who you are and within that peace to be guided by your authentic voice.

We had discussed the possibility of another flower added, but it felt like it was better to keep these all Cosmo Flowers in energy since they are like parts of her in different phases (pieces of the whole).

All of them being in full bloom holds the space of her wholeness as she integrates it and of her continually opening to all that she is. Since their name feels “Cosmic”, like the Cosmos, they can also be like stars..the shining aspects of her that she is allowing to emanate from within the vulnerability of her strength. That “Cosmic” essence also integrates the Divine with the now experience within Human “Being”.

The Dove symbolizes nurturing and is considered a symbol of motherhood actually, as well as maternal energy and instincts. Doves are associated with mother figures such as Mother Mary and symbolize care, devotion, purity, and peace, as well as promise, hope, and salvation. Not to mention of course love, grace, divinity, holiness, angelic presence, ascension, purification and are messengers. Aphrodite and Venus, both goddess mothers of love, are often shown with a dove symbolizing higher love that sees right into the heart of pure potential and views all things and everyone with the lenses of unconditional love.

Doves also have enchanting melodies that they vocalize, which would add to the sweetness of the words that come through her own voice in a gentle, loving and calm grace. This could be very powerful to have such a sweet presence and an actual beautiful and sweet melodious bird in this throat area. Doves are always symbolic of the end to a “war” or conflict, hence assisting in that inner turmoil she feels when expressing and communicating things.

The Dove’s wings are spread to ignite a greater ease, grace, flow, and freedom to be her most authentic self. I added subtle spirals on the inside of her feathers for flow.

And then the Throat Chakra symbol I overlayed on the body and tail of the dove in a way where they feel connected and integral to each other rather than just placed above, below, or not feeling a part of the piece. Both Dove and symbol are at center…to stabilize her in the core of who she is and to help her to return to her peaceful and harmonious center…a reminder. And sitting at the back of her neck/throat, it speaks to clarity and courage of creative self expression from this divine, graceful, gentle, peaceful center.

Exquisite Earth ~ Exquisite Life

I love the amazing array of nature’s beauty, and as all things are a reflection of us, it causes pause to recognize the miracle and beauty within us each.

How blessed are we to be able to experience the unique gifts Mother Earth has to offer?

And how lucky are we to experience the sensuality of life through this integrated experience that is equally tangible and exquisitely visceral and ethereal all at once.

Every moment is opportunity to experience something unique, as each moment is freshly creating itself and all experiences are relative to the uniqueness we each embody.

I’m grateful to have the ability to experience and feel in depths of layers and to enjoy the cyclical changes our Earth and seasons provide us, in mirror to our own transformations.

The enchantment is ever-giving on this beautiful Earth we share and co-create on.

“What happens to your heart when you dive into the sea”

Tania Marie's Blog:

Loving Ann’s posts today. Another great one that partners with the last post on our relationship with Earth being the healing key.

I know as a Pisces, I love being in the water and do in fact become a fish there. And I’ve witnessed and heard of many people who fear the water or don’t know how to swim, experiencing miraculous healing shifts when slowly integrated into a new relationship with it.

Being at the beach and immersing in the ocean’s cosmic love is invigorating. Water is our most natural origin.

The above may be my all-time favorite title. So evocative!

I read this post, and immediately afterwards opened a gift book that arrived yesterday by Alphonso Lingis, a philosopher/poet whom I had never heard of.  The first chapter of this book, Excesses: Eros and Culture, talks about how his reality changed when he began diving into the sea.

As usual, such synchronicities alert me to my path. Like stone cairns on a trail, they murmur: “Yes, keep going. You are on the right track.”

What Happens To Your Heart When You Dive Into The Sea

Surfers have always realised their tangible human connection to the ocean. However James Nestor’s description of exactly how close that relationship is might well surprise you.

Earthing for Earthlings

Tania Marie's Blog:

Your relationship with Earth affects everything. Return to natural harmony. Nature heals.

Love this post and so happy about this upcoming movie and the important message I hope many will embrace. It’s not a mystery that getting back to nature and honoring Terra reflects on your own temple body and the collective quality of life. But if you doubted it, now there’s more evidence to help you understand and perhaps make different life-changing choices.

Thanks to Ann Kreilkamp for sharing this.

Earth yourself daily, and you can clear out all those pharmaceuticals from your medicine cabinet. Plus, your body will rejoice! You’ll hear her singing as energy starts flowing and cells move back into harmony. Plus, and here’s the kicker: you can not only save money, but save your life.

We can heal our own bodies — correction: our bodies will heal themselves — when we choose to surrender and to re-member — our connection with, indeed our identification with, dear Mother…

The Garden of You

You…Your Life… is a garden…reflecting what you cultivate, nourish, nurture, and give light to, but also reflecting what you neglect, let run amok, don’t weed, and the choices you seed in each moment.

Lemurian Aquatine Calcite Skull ~ My Melodious New Friend of Ascension

crystal skull4I love when I’m guided to new crystals and stones, although it’s very rare these days that new friends find their way to me, as my energy has become very vibrationally discerning. Several years ago, I basically was living in a crystal cave – no joke, as I had so many crystals wanting home with me. I feel that I was recreating a familiar sacred temple cocoon to nurture the transformational healing and leaps on my spiritual path at the time.

Later, as I completed parts of my journey, many of the crystals were then ready to move on to assist others, leaving just a few original friends that are meant to stay with me. And very slowly over time, but more recently, some new discoveries that are considered “stones of the new consciousness” have found me. Now, I have a smaller family of really high vibrational beings that are assisting the next transmutational phase.

crystal skull6One of the most recent friends to find me is this amazing little Lemurian Aquatine Calcite Skull. Crystal Skulls are wonderful companions to connect with the collective consciousness and assisting transformational shifts into new paradigms of experience and higher awareness.

I used to have several little Skulls, until my large Quartz Skull found me. The smaller ones moved on, but it wasn’t until recently that I felt so drawn again to bring another little Skull into the family.

crystal skull2She now sits alongside my large Skull, Raja Seraphina, as she is calibrating to the energies here and being aligned and activated through the assistance of R.S. and myself. I’ve been sleeping with her under my pillow most nights since she has come home to me, as this a way I connect and align our ethereal energies in dream space time.

I hadn’t heard of, nor did I know anything of this stone until I saw my little Skull and started looking into more of its properties and background. I just knew my heart was connected with hers and she was to be with me.

crystal skullLemurian Aquatine Calcite comes from Argentina, but is not to be confused with Blue Onyx from Argentina. Apparently they are often mistaken for each other unless you know what to look for aesthetically, but also energetically, and sometimes Blue Onyx is passed off as Aquatine Calcite. But Blue Onyx is actually a deeper, darker blue, while Aquatine Calcite is a lighter blue/green – aqua in color. And the energies will also feel much different, as the Lemurian Aquatine Calcite has a really soft and flowing energy that feels inner and feminine to me, while the Blue Onyx has a bit more dynamic, stimulating energy that feels more male to me, although both have some similar crossovers.

Of course being a Pisces and very connected to the essence of Lemuria, this Lemurian Aquatine Calcite Skull feels like a sister soul. She hasn’t yet revealed her name, but I still feel she is settling in at home here. I have already seen how my dream time has been working with some emotional processing, which with her aid, so that is a welcome gift. I know her name will be known in divine timing, but in the meantime I am really loving her serenity and harmony she embodies.

crystal skull3Lemurian Aquatine Calcite is considered to be one of the stones of the new consciousness, getting its name because of its affinity to water and Lemuria. Up until now, Lemurian Seed Crystals and Aqua Lemuria from the mountains of Sumatra, Indonesia were the stones most known to resonate with the Lemurian frequency that recalled Lemuria’s “past knowledge”. Lemurian Aquatine Calcite emanates the actual feeling and intuitional awareness of the Lemurians and recalls the lost spiritual “capacities and abilities” they had.

Legends tie it also to being one of the “key stones” of ascension used by Lemurian priestesses to access other realms.

This stone is wonderful for the Throat Chakra, which I know was a key aspect to her coming to me right now, for what I am channeling in this regard to “voice”. It’s also wonderful to work with the Third Eye Chakra to stimulate inner vision and deepen psychic abilities. Not only will it assist intuition, but also enhance the mind to open to greater expansiveness and connections of broader knowledge. In a sense it is the bridge to one’s own innate intelligence and I believe it also works with the Higher Heart Chakra energy, Crown Chakra, and etheric Chakras.

crystal skull7It helps in communications with higher beings, facilitates connection with ancient cultures – Lemuria and a bridge to Atlantis, assists in contacting spirit guides and angels, supports traumatic past life healing, helps to raise vibrations from karmic energy, promotes spiritual ascension, helps you to flow with your emotions rather than get stuck, promotes enhanced dreaming and depth of feeling, as well as visionary consciousness. It’s one of those stones that is perfect to soothe the nerves, anxiety, fear, tension, and stress so that you are nourished at the etheric level into a peaceful state of being. It’s also very effective for connecting with that boundless, unity consciousness (a mirroring Piscean quality) that honors, respects, and realizes the connection and eternal quality of all things.

Lemurian Aquatine Calcite assists us in tuning into the energetic frequencies of the Earth’s past, which recalls the library of information stored in our DNA to bring into greater wholeness in the now and assist the activation of all Chakras beyond the seven you’ve been accustomed to only knowing about.

And of course, the stone is a bridge to our cetacean friends – the dolphins and whales. Not only is it a communication channel to these beings, assisting our telepathic skills, but is also a way to actually feel and know them, accessing the parts of them that are within you. You find your senses magnified beyond the physical confines of the body.

The energy of this stone is like a flowing melody to me, which I believe helps us to activate and embody our own personal frequency and song. Something incredibly important to me.

I look forward to knowing my Skull friend more and with her assistance, accessing greater depths and expansiveness of inner wisdom.
