Rainbow Portal ~ Gateway to Embodying Harmonic Light


rainbow2.jpg

Last evening the rain stopped right before sunset and a rainbow appeared directly out front of the Magick Bus, shooting up and out from Arches National Park where all the portals are. Only one side of the rainbow appeared from Earth’s crust, while the other end came through an opening of light in the rain cloud laden sky. It was a perfect symbol to end the last few days with and our time in Utah.

This was quite synchronous with its appearance at Arches, since rainbows are symbolic of bridges and arches, or archways.

And since arches, as we know, are portals, gateways, doors, and openings, then rainbows are portals into other worldly or cosmic realms and heightened awareness or transcendent experience. They also indicate choice and initiation, as well as opportunity for transformation, maybe transition, or illumination and embodied harmonic light.

This morning we woke to sunlit, clear skies, and stillness…no more wind or rain in sight.

It feels as though an initiation has been completed here, readying us for the next phase.

And so we will take advantage of this beautiful day to welcome in our last hike of the area, which will take us along a stream to Morning Glory Natural Bridge where a pool lies beneath the bridge and we’ll find waterfalls along the way – another gift Nature has provided, as several waterfalls are present after a rain, which we just had all day yesterday. 🙂

That feels like a perfect closure to our time in Utah and to celebrate today, as not only did the rainbow open a new portal and clear the air for fresh beginnings, promise, hope, and harmony, but it also created a bridge to my dear Nestor.

Today is the 8th anniversary of her transition over the Rainbow Bridge and so I will be in deep communion with her as we journey and be reminded of all that she taught me, but most importantly about pure, boundless love – of All That Is within me that she reflects and of living from the heart as hugely as possible, since today may be my last.

Two bubbles found they had rainbows on their curves. They flickered out saying: “It was worth being a bubble, just to have held that rainbow thirty seconds.” ~Carl Sandburg

Breaking Through & Bending Our Way to New Realities


20160425_161241

As we sipped hot tea and listened to the sound of pouring rain this morning (which we’re doing again right now), I peered out from my desk and saw a blanket of fog between us and Arches National Park, just revealing the silhouette of the rocks, but covering the portal arches from sight – a veil between worlds emerged to allow only inner sight to lead us through to a new reality.

20160425_161333

The power went out again this morning – the second time in three days – and the raging winds of change have turned to downpours of cleansing sky tears mirroring a time for more unplugging, reviewing, releasing, and readying for new actions.

At times it has felt like things weren’t happening, but a lot has been in very deep ways with old programming getting an upgrade.

One must come to terms with letting go AND letting in, not just in idea and theory, but actualization.

Times of breakthroughs to the other side of the portals of experience rather than needing to make literal breaks are here, as we realize that not only have we changed immensely, but our processes do not resemble the old ones any longer either.

We can bend time and reality, and we can transmute through our flexibility and embrace.

Today has been another more quiet day with less outward doing, but more downtime to let the realizations of change take root.

Our last days in Utah are proving to be integrative, readying us for the journey forward into Colorado.

We’ve been in Utah for six weeks of deep exploration and the winds, rain, and electrical outages seem to be mirroring a complete rewiring and recharge, as we will literally be moving from one energetic realm to another and crossing the state lines into a different reality.

Yesterday was filled with symbolism too on the three mile Corona Arch Trail.

It’s set atop a stunning slickrock setting and you get two arches for the price of one hike, as you get to also see Bowtie Arch, which sits adjacent to it.

There’s an old ladder harnessed to the rocks at one point to help you climb up the pour-off and metal ropes in a couple of areas to help you climb up and not slide off the slickrock.

20160425_160053

On topographical maps Corona Arch is often times called Little Rainbow Bridge. You can see why in the photos of it and this name felt more resonant with its energy to me.

20160425_160049_resized

It feels so alive and almost like the cliff has extended its leg and taken a step forward, anchoring it on the Earth to create a bridge to the other side.

20160425_160404_resized

 

Both arches were pretty amazing, creating two gateways to enter.

20160425_160150_resized

The first more like a cave into the sky with a visible opening sitting atop a mirroring, but cave-like indentation that would seem impassable, but that’s merely what the physical eyes would have you think.

20160425_160625_resized

It’s almost like a male and female counterpart of portals at Bowtie Arch where two portals stand in unison, connected at center and are both accessible if you know the key.

20160425_161654_resized

One might seem more obvious, but my sense is to get through it, you must understand them both.

So, the obvious becomes the deep mystery of alchemy and knowing how to work both of your parts together.

20160425_161840

I was wearing my braided pig tails, so I decided to have some fun with them at this arch.

20160425_16182220160425_161833

While these energies are potent and yes, at times takes some serious reflection and commitment, it’s important to also have fun with it all.

Each of the arches we’ve seen have felt initiatory.

And these were no exception.

There are active train tracks you must pass on the hike and are warned to do so with extreme caution.

20160425_161939_00120160425_163945_resized

Dave made sure that our passing was safe, literally listening for the vibrations. Hehe!

20160425_164315_resized

You also pass this field of cairns, which is super cool. I’ve never seen so many in one place. From tiny to large, people have built cairns here from the broken rubble of fallen rock from the canyon cliffs.

20160425_162640_resized

Some of them made into mini arches too. It was like a miniature Faeryland.

20160425_162717_resized

On this hike I also saw more wild flower varieties than I’d seen in any one place at one time. I didn’t photograph them all, but there were varieties in each of the colors of pink, purple, white, yellow, and orange.

20160425_154619_resized20160425_155646_resized

That felt very richly fertile for new opportunities and growth emerging and the ability to choose from many possibilities – or doorways.

20160425_163036_resized20160425_164702_resized20160425_163049_resized

On the way back, after our time at the arches we passed a blind man hiking with his wife. He had two poles he felt along the ground with and she was ahead letting him know what was coming.

That was really potent and reiterated the power of our inner eye to guide us, rather than only looking at the surface of things.

We could all do a little more “feeling” of our way through life than we are currently.

20160425_170628_resized

On our drive back, we stopped at two petroglyph walls that sit along the Colorado River. These were incredible with much more intricate depictions than we’d seen, and a variety of new images.

20160425_170640_resized

The petroglyphs have increased in detail along our journey and these were quite elaborate, and also so well defined.

20160425_170556_resized20160425_170537_resized

They included a very large Bear (I intuited it was a bear right away and after we saw a sign that confirmed this feeling), which was pretty cool given the Bear symbolism I’ve had over the months.

20160425_170118_resized

The Bear was drawn showing all five toes on each foot, which is pretty detail specific. I placed my hand in them and it was an exact fit, as if they’d been molded after mine.

20160425_165841_resized

There were some other cool markings as you can see, different animal depictions, energy movement, and things like tracks, calendars, or pathways.

20160425_170007_resized20160425_165924_resized20160425_165944_resized20160425_165952_resized20160425_170656_resized

We then came across two wild turkeys after the petroglyphs, which ended off the day.

Turkeys symbolize abundance, connection with and honor of Mother Earth, harvesting the fruits of your labor, being nourished and satisfied with life, blessings from Earth, revealing your true self, endings, and beginnings.

Although we still have tomorrow before leaving, yesterday felt like a preparation of closure and bringing all things together. Today grounding that, as we’ve been more quiet and allowing action to take place on the inside while the rain clears way with our intents of release.

And after the hike yesterday I spoke with my parents on the phone to see how they are and what they shared went along with the symbolism of the turkeys and the abundance of flowers I’d seen.

They shared that they have started their own veggie garden.

A man they knew was getting rid of crates and they took a few of the two-by-two crates, filled them with soil and planted three varieties of tomatoes, red, green and yellow peppers, different lettuces, and strawberries.

I thought that was very cool that they were going to start growing their own food. They’ve also gotten a sun oven since I told them about mine and they do a lot to be self sufficient if needed, not to mention have been doing their own explorations and journeying to discover new places, as well as taking more time to do things they love.

The more we integrate and embody the changes, the more others around us will also start making changes and doing new things relative to their experience.

And so I continue on this journey with open arms and steady foot to greet the new with humbling honor and to step forward with deliberate and intentional action.

 

Quiet Days ~ Loud Reflections


20160423_160327.jpg

Love this shot Dave took that really reflects the depth of meaning and energy right now for me. He did it as a panoramic shot from one end of inside of Longbow Arch to the other where I stood (the arch actually extends from both sides of the ground up and around me like a rainbow). The result is expansive – stretching beyond what is known and comfortable that change is asking of me/us.

It’s been an internal weekend, which is why I’ve been mostly offline and also more quiet, both not writing or speaking that much. Sometimes that’s just needed especially when processing changes in life.

We also decided to spend time on the Colorado River this weekend, so we took two tours – one on Saturday night called Canyonlands by Night and one yesterday afternoon white water rafting with Canyon Voyages Adventure Co.

These lazy river days provided relaxation, refreshing energy – as we’ve been in the high desert for nearly six weeks, so getting on the water felt invigorating – and mirrored just being and flowing with the changes that we’ve so rapidly and powerfully been experiencing.

Saturday we had huge winds roaring through like crazy. So much so that it took down the power for a while – so we had no electric or water for a couple of hours.

That felt pretty symbolic after the Full Moon energy – a complete unplug and recharge – and it also is when I started feeling quiet.

We started the day with a mountain bike ride, but when we first started I immediately didn’t feel like I did a couple of days ago where I was looking like a seasoned mountain bike rider.

Something was off and the winds were making me feel unstable, as they were pushing me around and sand was coming at me. Due to the instability, I fell, no more than two minutes in – my left elbow hitting the slickrock (major change blasting through my life) – and I immediately knew I was not to bike that day and told Dave to go ahead while I went back to the car and waited.

This older man showed up right when I did out of no where, with a walking staff of sorts, silvery white hair and beard, and an accent I couldn’t make out. The words exchanged solidified my choice to not continue and then he disappeared quite quickly. I hadn’t waited but two or three minutes while telling Dave to go on before I went back on the trail to the car.

He wasn’t on the trail, nor in the parking lot.

Odd, as he appeared like a Druid out of nowhere and was gone.

Nobody else was hiking the trail, as it’s mostly mountain bike riders.

20160423_152710_001.jpgAnyway, we later did a short hike after lunch (still in my biking wear) on a newer two and a half mile roundtrip trail to a rarely visited arch.

20160423_154900_resized.jpg

This trail was established in late 2015 so it’s only been around a short time and we found ourselves alone on it, which mirrored the quiet internalized feeling running through.

This freshly-minted trail goes to Longbow Arch and starts at Poison Spider 4×4 trailhead.

20160423_150542_resized20160423_150631_resized.jpg20160423_150657_resized.jpg20160423_150616.jpg

At the beginning of the trail you come to the amazing Potash Road dinosaur tracks and petroglyph walls and rocks. The best we’ve seen.

20160423_150909_resized.jpg20160423_150918_resized.jpg20160423_150947.jpg

They seem to depict perhaps a hunting scene rock art panel…lots of animals and interesting figures – some not looking human.

20160423_150956.jpg20160423_151416.jpg20160423_151421_resized.jpg20160423_151013_resized.jpg20160423_151053_resized.jpg20160423_151102_resized.jpg20160423_151223_resized.jpg20160423_151342_resized.jpg20160423_151711.jpg20160423_151024_resized.jpg

Then you continue to Longbow Arch climbing a steeper pour-off opening into a high desert landscape, through dirt, sand, and slickrock, as you skirt a series of Navajo sandstone fins and domes, and then into a side canyon where you climb up and under the arch itself where you get a view of the canyon.

20160423_162457_resized.jpg20160423_153340_resized.jpg20160423_153351_resized.jpg20160423_155458.jpg20160423_163117.jpg

You also have a view of the Colorado River at the start and end of the trail, which mirrored the rest of our River time.

20160423_155035_resized.jpg20160423_155342_resized.jpg

Longbow Arch itself and its hidden, less traveled location, was quite an experience, as it felt very expansive, opening, and revealing of what can come when you take the road less traveled and face your fears.

20160423_155541.jpg20160423_155610_resized.jpg20160423_155626_resized.jpg20160423_155928_resized.jpg

After we enjoyed dinner at a Mexican restaurant in town we headed to our night trip on the jetboat.

20160423_194225_resized.jpg20160423_194256_resized.jpg

This tour takes you along the river, as you learn about the geology and history, get to see the unique formations that our guide Dee pointed out (like E.T. below), and just take in the sights and feelings of the river and the canyons.

20160423_201334_resized.jpg

We got to see a Beaver as we made our way down and a lovely sunset behind us.

20160423_195208_resized.jpg20160423_195918_resized.jpg20160423_200634_resized.jpg

And once it gets dark the light show begins where they illuminate the canyon walls and you listen to stories and music that accompanies your float back.

20160423_203306_resized.jpg

We got “lucky” we had front row seats some how. It was quite chilly so the blankets they provided made it a cozy, snuggle up experience that is really unique and beautiful.

I only took one photo during the light and sound show, as the light illuminated a unicorn on the rock wall of the canyon. Very hard to depict in this photo, but it was clear as if it were day, in person – well to me. 😉

20160423_210023_resized.jpg

If you let yourself immerse in just being with everything around you, you will feel yourself become one with the mystery and magnificence. And more and more reveals itself to you.

Yesterday we did our half day water rafting trip, which included a stop at one of the sandy beaches along the river for lunch. No photos to share, as we wanted to be without any gadgets.

This was our day exploration of the river, both floating down and enjoying the fun of the whitewater rapids. We saw Great Blue Heron and River Otters along the way, which was cool.

There are a lot of ways you can experience nature’s beauty here, which mirror your own journey and processes.

Serenity and flow filled our time and I’m still feeling the need for quiet, although it doesn’t feel quiet on the inside at all, nor in terms of the reflections that are constantly in front of me.

Some things came to me to reflect on and review my feelings about. I’m  listening and will be making the adjustments necessary.

It’s so interesting, as although I’ve taken off from the services I once offered, I feel like I’m doing so much more life work right now and it’s become evident why I had to take a break..

Energetically I’m fully immersed and constantly involved in processes and channeling – in wake and dream time. My path has become life simply unfolding.

20160423_162829.jpg

Living in constant presence (stopping to smell the flowers of life) and awareness IS astoundingly rich, hugely demanding, and deeply rewarding.

Not always easy, but then it wouldn’t be as incredible if it were.

Illumination of the Moon ~ Seeing the New Path From the Depths of Your Heart


20160422_173406(0)_resized.jpgThis Scorpio Full Moon has been incredibly powerful for supporting shifts and transitions right now and I’ve noticed that for many of us who have been diligently and consciously embracing the work with open arms of readiness, we are finding ourselves in a whole new reality asking us to walk with courageous knowing of heart through the door fully.

20160422_165628_resized.jpg

That seems to look like new career paths where loss of jobs that have run their course and more aligned passions are coming to fruition, selling of homes and simplifying life to move on to more resonant places and lives that support the new changes, experiencing illnesses or the need for more self-nurturing and balance to function more efficiently and with greater clarity and connection, experiencing the physical loss of loved ones both in animal and human bodies that are mirroring our changes and supporting our growth with their own cycles, relationships whether friendships, romantic, or even family dynamics coming to end or starting anew to align with the changes we’ve been asking for and working towards, or simply just knowing that change is needed and the ways one has been living life can no longer sustain the new energies flowing through.

20160422_172827_resized.jpg

Nothing will look or be as it once was.

20160422_163627_resized.jpg

Yesterday we did a short two mile hike on Park Avenue Trail, which to me is so misnamed.

This trail reflected to me Egyptian and Cosmic energies…very powerful, even royal in essence. It did have a more Divine Masculine energy, in my opinion, which would unite that dynamic within both the Male and Female to unify this energy within.

It seemed like it could have been named something more like Valley of the Kings.

20160422_164639_resized.jpg

It was not the old, but new Masculine that we can each embrace within ourselves to become empowered Men and Women, as we each have that energy within us. And it is this energy that will support our intuitive guidance into active, creative manifestation.

20160422_163523_resized.jpg

My favorite rock formation welcomes you at the start of this trail, although I could not find any information at the trailhead speaking of this rock and no one, at least that I have seen over the days we’ve passed it or on this day, paid attention to it. So it seemed to only speak to those who this spirit guide works with.

To me, he looks like a Cosmic being, perhaps of the Cosmic council, and since I felt a more masculine energy, also reminds me of Akhenaten – the Egyptian Pharaoh who was thought to be of extraterrestrial origin because of his “strange” appearance and “mysterious” revolutionary ways.

I’ve always had a resonance with Akhenaten and found myself most drawn to him when visiting Egypt the two times in this life that I did.

As Megaera Lorenz shares, “Akhenaten is all things to all people — to some he was a fanatical lunatic, to some he comes across as a strange, eccentric young man whose behavior was strongly influenced by his mother, to others he was a Christ-like visionary and a mentor of Moses, and to still others he was simply someone who happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time and who really had nothing to do with the dramatic reformations that went on during his reign.”

Sounds a bit like the Fool card in Tarot.

20160422_163516_resized

Everytime I have seen this Cosmic Being in Park Avenue, I have felt such a strong pull and reverence for the energies he embodies.

Something very revolutionary in the energy invited by him here as you enter and descend into a spectacular canyon surrounded by panels that feel like Monolithic Egyptian structures that once may have been shaped like Sphinxes.

20160422_170909_resized.jpg20160422_170917_resized.jpg

And other large structures that look like temples along with one rock named “Sheep Rock” that is more like a Sphinx to me as well.

20160422_165455_resized.jpg

There is another very cool formation they call “The Three Gossips” that I feel could have been called something like “The Three Wise Men” or “Three Kings” – again all of these being wrongfully named in my opinion in terms of their essence.

20160422_165911_resized.jpg

But perhaps that is part of the mystery here and that each of us will receive what we are meant to.

20160422_171159_resized.jpg

There is also a large stone structure that looks just like a giant throne, although isn’t named as anything or noted by the park.

20160422_164728_resized.jpg

However, if something is named something by others then that automatically may condition a trigger within to associate the energy differently than what it really is.

Again, that would be perfect to what each needs, but might then be a process of inner revelation and turning within to know what it truly means to you beyond the labels and definitions others have placed upon them.

20160422_165059_resized.jpg

This valley was one of the most deceptive in these terms, I felt, but then perfect as to knowing how to access the keys within to journey through the reality of your choice.

All of this feeling to mirror the illusions of life that we all do or are currently facing, as energies are being revealed layer by layer to align us more with the truth that lies within.

20160422_164446_resized.jpg

And when recognized and embraced, you will experience everything in your life from a completely different perspective, as well as receive the treasures to guide you on a more empowered path of conscious co-creation.

20160422_165740_resized.jpg

Last night, after dinner at an awesome Sushi place called Sabaku Sushi that has a great selection of vegan sushi and other vegan dish options, we decided to enter Arches by moonlight to experience and receive the Moon’s illumination.

DSCF8320.JPG

It was really mystical, first the Moon was crystal clear in the sky and then as we approached our destination of Balanced Rock, a mysterious haze blanketed the Moon creating a golden glow behind, between, and around the rock, also bringing it to life as an other worldly being.

DSCF8315.JPG

We stopped at my favorite rock at the entrance of Park Avenue Trail too, and by this time the Moon was behind a cloud, which again revealed that the veils were something one must see through on their own to receive clarity.

DSCF8312.JPG

The Moon helps us to see the mysteries within if we dare venture deeply for that truth.

And so, I say to each of you…..do you see the reality that others have defined for you, or are you seeing the truth that only you know within your heart?

As you walk through these transitions in your life, know that they may not appear as what you’ve been conditioned to think they are, but will reveal a more authentic experience of life as you desire.

They may be challenging and seem uncomfortable, but that is simply a process of becoming more you until it is a natural experience once again.

Much like growing pains we have all gone through, but this time it’s moving through the vortex of spirit release from restriction into your more expansive self.

That funnel-like journey seems tight and painful, but releases with ease once you pass through the tunnel.

Just keep moving forward with trust in your own heart knowing.

(Interesting note: After I posted this, I decided to ask around yesterday at the visitor center to see about the rock that felt like Akhenaten to me. I found out that it is known as Queen Nefertiti Rock, but also considered a “balancing rock.” This made sense, as I had heard two women talking, upon our return on the Park Avenue Trail. I didn’t see where they were pointing, as I was climbing back up to the parking lot, but it was at the area you could have been peering up at this formation. One woman was pointing something out to the other and said, “that’s the balancing rock,” explaining what that meant. Since I had no idea at the time that it was this, I wasn’t sure what she might be talking about. Now I know she meant this rock, that to me feels more to be Akhenaten, but known as Queen Nefertiti. Interesting that somehow she knew it more as a “balancing rock” than by any name though. But also interesting to note about this is twofold….One, it confirms the Egyptian energy I was feeling without knowing this. And two, Nefertiti was Akhenaten’s wife. And Nefertiti’s image is far more popular in mainstream than Akhenaten, as she is considered to many, Egypt’s most beautiful queen. Perhaps linking to the western values associated with something like Park Avenue. As Akhenaten was not your typical man, nor one that would be revered with his feminine qualities in both looks and ideas. However, Akhenaten was a pharaoh not only known to potentially have extraterrestrial origin, but all depictions show him as having feminine characteristics, including a voluptuous stomach and buttocks, breasts…this link discusses some of this: http://www.heptune.com/Marfans.html. In hieroglyphics I remember seeing in Egypt, both Nefertiti and Akhenaten looked very similar in their family depictions. Nefertiti’s head piece being more straight-edged and angular and Akhenaten’s a bit rounded and straight. You can see this a bit in these images below. So, one could easily mistaken them for each other and since Akhenaten is the most mysterious pharaoh that was in touch with his feminine parts, they easily could resemble each other. – Anyway, there is no right or wrong in what someone sees. I am merely sharing what I felt from the energies here and providing more insight to explore for yourself. Either way – Nefertiti or Akhenaten – I feel that the Sacred Masculine Energy, which is one that unites with the Sacred Feminine, is being celebrated here.)

Deepening Into Passionate Embodiment


20160419_163231_resized.jpg“Better pass boldly into that other world, in the full glory of some passion, than fade and wither dismally with age.” ~James Joyce

I’ve chosen a colorful and boldly lived life that I experience with both soft footsteps upon the Earth and loud expressions of individuality and purposefulness.

20160419_163537_resized

And while I’ve made choices not everyone would, or that others might judge, they all have meaning I’ve both grown from and reflected truth mirrors for others to choose from.

“A man (or woman) of genius makes no mistakes; his errors are volitional and are the portals of discovery.” ~James Joyce

20160419_163728_resized

This journey we are on right now exploring in our Magick Bus RV is most reflective of the Cosmic pilgrim that I am and provides me the most resonant experiences that supports my path currently – one that both simultaneously is individual and collective, despite what it may seem.

All paths in life that we choose can only fully be understood by the one taking that journey, as no one can walk in your shoes, nor do they come from the same perspectives of life to concur with how you believe and know it to be.

20160419_162758_resized.jpg

There is nothing to prove, nothing to defend, and nothing you need to feel guilty about.

To live boldy with passion is your soul’s whispering request, as it is why Spirit has so boldly manifested in a form that can sensually express and experience it as so.

20160419_170653_resized

Sometimes that boldness is soft wafting trails that leave behind the aroma of your soul for others to catch wind of.

20160419_164506_resized

Sometimes that boldness is dramatic cliff leaping that inspires others to jump onto their own magick carpets awaiting them on the other side.

Either way, and likely both ways, life will be enriched and enriching when lived from passion.

20160419_164812_resized

Whether that reflects as one particular passion that moves you, several, or simply all of life intended to be experienced as a flower’s desire to reach for and open to the warmth and glory of the Sun, doesn’t matter.

Life lived with soul passion to express your individual tendril of the Cosmic Tree of Life will lead you through portals of experience like no other.

20160419_163451_resized.jpg

When you seethe with passion, even just being will have a profound effect on everything around you.

The act of deepening into Being IS passionate embodiment.

20160419_163341_resized.jpg

And when one is passionately embodied, all things are possible, all doors open, and so much passion reveals itself in the life reality all around you that you’re creating.

 

The images shared throughout this post are from yesterday’s exploration along the trail to Delicate Arch – the best known arch in the world.

This rugged and steep trail starts at Wolfe Ranch, takes you past the old, pioneer Wolfe homestead, Ute Indian petroglyphs, an overgrown streambed, throngs of juniper, a smaller arch, and slopes around the side of a sandstone fin to come to the dramatic vista of Delicate Arch.

Along the way lizard, raven, desert blossoms, and an amazing garden of colored, crystallized rocks greeted us.

My favorite spot was the small window arch that people passed by on the way to Delicate Arch.

While everyone hung out there, I told Dave, “let’s go climb up and sit in the window…I have a feeling there’s a view from there and we’ll be alone.”

And so it was.

I loved this spot….can you tell?

Deepening into passionate embodiment and Being, as I laid in the window arch overlooking Delicate Arch vista.

Dreaming a new reality into creation.

 

Windows, Arches & Balancing Rocks ~ Portals Into Humbling New Realms


me window.jpgOur six week journey through Utah has taken us to some amazing National Parks where the experiences have been profoundly shifting and perfectly sequenced in a process of deep unfolding.

Yesterday, we arrived at the last of six parks – Arches – and immediately I knew it was my favorite. Not that each hasn’t been spectacular and connective for me, as they have big time! But the energy at Arches and the portals and rock formation spirits just spoke to a certain part of me that I can’t explain.

Perhaps it is because this concluded a journey here in Utah that has been opening, then extremely deepening and at times dark in those wombs and ancient energies, helping me to retrieve, integrate, and move through personal and collective stuff, then arriving at this land of magick portals and gateways to the otherworlds that brought out a sense of movement, flow, and cosmic journeying to the next phase along the path – actually walking through the doorways of newness becoming.

Even the entrance into the park just had me excited, as you come off of the highway and go through a much more official looking entrance with high gate entries and then ascend, zig-zagging up the walls of the cliffs to the plateau that Arches sits atop.

You then enter land of many other worlds, where beings, guardians, sentinels, time travelers, record and gate keepers await you.

There are many lands here to visit, many doorways to walk through, and many portals to what ever reality you want to create.

All to be met with a pure heart, which will be the key to unlock doors.

It seems no coincidence we also are staying at Archview RV park and look out on Arches from our home.

the windows.jpg

Everyday taking in the sunrises rich with promise and looking into the portals I can see ahead in the rocks, reflecting the constant forward movement I am committed to without complacency and with so much belief.

One of my most powerful spirit guides was with me yesterday, from start to end, as in the morning just as the sun was about to peak above the horizon I saw a Desert Cottontail appear out front and run into the bushes.

And then in the late afternoon when we arrived at the first portal – the North Window – and I’d climbed over the threshold to the other side, sinking into the rocks so that I was out of view from anyone on the other side, a Black-Tailed Jack Rabbit appeared below just as I looked down…disappearing into the bushes again.

Since the one in the morning was on one side of the arches and Arches National Park, and the next was after I walked through the first Window, I feel they are guiding me through to the next reality of life I am creating.

It is a journey of courageous embrace and the willingness to put it all out there for myself or anyone else to see.

I once was afraid, repressed, hidden, discouraged, and tormented…but now I dance with these energies and work their alchemy, just as Rabbit teaches us to harness our fragility and fears into agility, cleverness, spontaneous decisive movement led by intuition, and guides us into the shadow world to face our fears with vulnerable, wise embrace and humility.

They are highly sensitive and teach us to lead by our own wits, live in balance, and to receive, strengthen, and understand the hidden teachings and intuitive messages around us.

There is strength in the quiet softness of even the most sensitive and fragile beings and like Rabbit we can leap and bound through portals of growth when we own that strength.

So I continue to follow the Rabbit within me, the Sacred Embodiment of Universal Creative Powers, to guide me on, to birth the Cosmic Egg of boundless potential.

And yesterday I felt the joy of moving as the Rabbit through these portals of growth and journeys through Great Mystery, as we explored the North and South Windows, Turret Arch, Double Arch, and Balanced Rock trails.

I felt like the Windows were not only doorways, but places to see our reflection, like mirrors, or like the reflective gateway in the Neverending Story one must face to pass through, which shows Atreyu what he truly is inside.

Turret Arch was an ancient gateway that led to points on your soul journey to retrieve.

Double Arch was a double portal where one could soar if they could walk the Earth and Cosmic path as one.

This is where we spent the most time and I sat under the arches to receive.

It is there that I saw what appeared to be a Unicorn – Master of the Light – then felt and saw very tall, soaring light beings all around and inside the Arch.

The light was shining through and upon me, and I then laid back to look through both arches at once, centered at middle, looking into the light of both realms.

We then concluded at Balanced Rock where we integrated further and rooted that energy with strength.

It was an amazing rock demonstrating our ability to hold energy in a way that seems to defy dynamics as you know them.

I sat here under Balanced Rock and embraced the wisdom of these giants and boundless energies around me that both diminished me in size relative to theirs, but expanded my boundaries and melded me into that eternal vastness.

Can you find me here at center?

The energy was playful, uplifting, inspiring, and yet very grounded.

This was not airy Faery energy, although I did feel light, but instead were the foundations of Earth-based freedom available to us as the Cosmic beings that we are.

These Faeries were in tall, “angelic” or “cosmic” form appearing as light beings, alongside a council of Cosmic Ancients.

They are the ones I saw all around in a sacred circle at the Double Arch.

And as I felt to pull a card from my Wild Wisdom of the Faery Oracle deck, you won’t believe that it was the very same one that Laura posted about in her blog this morning, so similar to mine today titled Sync Winks and Faery Portals.

You can see that card at her link and some of its meaning, including:

“Being able to see change ahead, but not knowing how to deal with it. Understanding that in order to learn something new, one must forget what one thinks one knows. Getting ‘down’ to the level of others who you do not know. Receiving messages from nature. Understanding that wonderment is the natural process of change.”

Indeed I have been unlearning everything and rewriting it all by my heart and the guidance received through it, one step, sometimes leaps, at a time.

The card also shares:

“Truly in order to reach the wonderment of Faery, you must become “smaller”. But that does not mean to become a reduced version of yourself. Rather, it means to approach them, or whatever situation is currently at and, as a beginner, a walker in a new land, and to be humble and willing to learn. This threshold will see her walk into another land, but she will still be able to walk in her own. See the light pouring through – through this humble doorway is en-LIGHT-enment. Meaning more knowledge, understanding and the ability to communicate. She is peering through this doorway, through which light can shine into the darkening world of humans. A world that is only darkened by the thought forms that provide a kind of emotional pollution in our world. She is ready to step through, to allow her imagination’s wisdom to lead her into new realms, and to accept the mystery of Faery communication….

As a result, her life’s work will start now, and she will find herself in the right place at the right time. As long as her relationship with nature remains pure and strong, so too will her relationship with the natural world…”

Wow, this is exactly what I felt at Double Arch in the vision of the Light Beings around me, humbled and ready to receive their wisdom, as the awakening flow of life force within my veins and DNA that stands in their reflection.

I have felt the dichotomy of becoming smaller, while simultaneously expanding.

And as always I turn to you, since we are collectively connected and ask, where do YOU feel within yourself the opportunities to walk into new realms with fresh wonderment and humble willingness to relearn all you thought you knew?

Are you willing to let it all go and allow the deep, ancient, cosmic wisdom take you by the hand into the Great Mystery?

I invite you to walk your own unique journey alongside me and face your path with curious embrace.

It is 11:11 am here, as I conclude this share.

A portal has opened for us to walk through indeed.
