Blythe Intaglios ~ A Journey Deeper Into Origins & a Message of Hope


Yesterday just before sunset we got to visit the Blythe Intaglios, which just happened to be only 15 minutes away from where we’re currently grounded on the Colorado River.

I had no idea that they were here and now it all comes together why we ended up being directed to this location, as at first we were headed to Lake Havasu, but when we discovered how packed it was right now and places were mostly booked, we decided that the Spring Break crowd wasn’t our thing and opted for something more peaceful.

That is what we’ve found here in Blythe on the river.

I’d heard mention of really spectacular geoglyphs in America in the past, but it didn’t register where they were until we got here.

These are giant, prehistoric and mysterious geoglyphs in the Colorado Desert often called America’s Nazca Lines – referring to the ancient geoglyphs in Peru. Their origin and age is still unknown, although thought they could be 2000 years old.intaglio.jpg

When I registered in the office there was a magazine on the counter the manager said I could take when she saw me flipping through it.

When I got it back to the RV I opened right up to a page talking about the Intaglios and we looked it up discovering how close we were.

So, we immediately knew we would be going there and that happened yesterday.

We left a little after 4pm and got there just before 4:30pm, leaving us about an hour of sunlight before the sun set behind the mountain range.

It was desolate and quiet. Not a soul around, which made it even more sacred.

The area they are located in is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, but no one but us were there.

It isn’t marked with any huge sign post, just a little muted sign off the side of the road you’d have to be looking for that said “Blythe Intaglios” leading to a dirt road that turns into quite a rocky dirt road and continues far back in.

We went a good ways in, but decided that we should turn around to the two locations we drove past (which we did to take in the scope of things before exploring) in order to be able to see the geoglyphs before the sun disappeared.

So we turned around from this beautiful location out in the desert surrounded by mountain ranges where I got out to feel the energy of the area briefly.desert

We then stopped at the first sign to get out. Cars are not allowed except on the tire marked trail, in order to preserve the area. There are wood fences where you park with a little zig zag entrance you walk through and then takes you up to the metal fenced area for viewing.

This is all done for their protection and preservation, as over the years before they had been fenced off, vehicles had driven through the area. You can actually see the tire marks from aerial photographs of where this has occurred.

Anyway, we made our way up to the first fenced area. I had a surge of energy rushing through me of excitement.human figure 1

It was such a beautiful time of day…nobody there, gentle breeze, soft glow from the setting sun, and warm colors on the desert floor.

And there it was…the first of these giant geoglyphs that was in the form of a human figure, or as some believe it may be “the Creator”.first geoglyph.jpgfirst geoglyph2.jpgfirst geoglyph3

(Okay, brief pause to mention that while I’ve been writing this two things have taken place. My good friend Lynne sends me a message about Gaia, my tortoise, and a video she took several years ago of her saying she was coming to her today for some reason. I told her that’s synchronous, as she came to me yesterday at the site of the Intaglios. Right after she shows me a photo of a piece of bark from a tree on the ground where she’s visiting right now in Lake Tahoe, my beloved home, in the shape of a turtle. We both feel this is a message from her connected to my experience yesterday. Lynne has no idea what I’ll be writing yet and as to why this is significant. You’ll see what I mean soon.

And then, while this is going on and I just finish writing above about the gentle breeze in the desert and the human form or “Creator”, I receive three phone calls one after another on my cell phone from a number I’m not familiar with in Nevada. So I don’t answer, but each time a voicemail is left. The first time all I hear is the sound of wind. The second time wind again, but then a man’s voice in another language I can’t make out that is muffled, but briefly repeating a short word or phrase three times in what sounds ancient. Then is cut off with wind. And the third time more wind and a what seems like a woman and I catch something like “this is happening”. And then no more calls.)

While at this first site that we circled around to see at different angles, I felt called to look for some rocks on the ground and found several I was guided to bring back with me. Dave then went to one end of the geoglyph while I sat with my back to the fence, supporting me, facing the direction that the figure faces.

This photo below was taken by Dave without my knowing, while I sat softly tuning in against the fence. You can see just how big these figures are by my tiny size…or was it that I shrunk into Faery mode?

20160301_165204

I just closed my eyes, took a few breaths and waited to see if anything would come through. I usually get visions of things and that is exactly what happened.

The first vision that came through was of an ancient, indigenous looking man, but his origins unknown. He was wearing a headdress and like I’ve seen sometimes in visions of an animal being part of the headdress, this was true in this vision, although I’d never seen this animal in a piece like this. And the animal was alive, not a head piece as part of decoration.

And that’s where the above side-note comes into context.

It was a turtle.

You’d have thought it would be a tortoise, being in the desert, but it was actually a sea turtle head with large dark and deep eyes.

The sea turtle image of this amazing ancient face is still very clear for me.

I began to wonder about this area at one time being covered in ocean water or surrounded by it. Or, if the people who came here were from another region by the ocean who created these geoglyphs. Or, if this was pointing to ancient origins in general and Gaia, my tortoise was guiding the way, as she once was a giant sea turtle in a life we shared long ago and works so closely with the core energies of Earth.

In a post I wrote several years ago, I shared the connection with the name Gaia, turtles, Earth, and these origins.

You can read the full article here: Gaia ~ Earth Mother and Turtle? Ancient Wisdom for Conscious Living

Here is an excerpt from it that feels connective to my vision and feelings from it:

“Far too coincidental and divinely synchronous, turtles are the most ancient, vertebrate creatures that also possess Gaia’s wisdom and mother energy and through such, have much to impart. Many ancient myths, such as those of the Indigenous North Americans, describe the world as resting on the turtle’s back and many still refer to North America as Turtle Island.

This is illustrated by their creation legends that tell of a time when Earth was covered by water and Turtle dove to the ocean’s depths to bring forth Earth on its back so the people could have a safe, dry home.”

Interesting I am looking at a figure some feel is “the Creator” and the ancient indigenous man with turtle upon his headdress shows up immediately.

Wikipedia shares:

“The name Turtle Island is used today by many Native tribes, Native rights activists, and environmental activists, especially since the 1970s when the term came into wider usage. In a later essay, published in At Home on the Earth, Gary Snyder claimed this title as a term referring to North America that synthesizes both indigenous and colonizer cultures by translating the indigenous name into the colonizer’s languages (the Spanish “Isla Tortuga” being proposed as a name as well). Snyder argues that understanding North America under the name of Turtle Island will help shift conceptions of the continent.”

Many Native tribes each have their origin stories that revolve around stories of the “Great Turtle,” how the Earth grew from dirt gathered on the back of a turtle, etc.

Regardless of the exact meaning to this vision, it simply feels to be a connection to our “origins,” which has been my focus lately on integrating and remembering.

These ancients are supporting the work being integrated and I imagine that this is deep knowledge and wisdom being processed and integrated through calling up this remembrance.

The rest will reveal itself when needed, or simply has been activated with my DNA as I retrace and retrieve parts of myself and our ancient origins collectively.

The phone messages through the wind and ancient voice felt to be reiterating this information that was accessed at the portal in this area yesterday.

A doorway has been opened and I imagine more ancients will be channeling through as I continue this RV journey that is much more than simply traveling about for leisure, as you likely surmised. I think most of you who know me would realize that following my heart is always deeply soul-connected with something simultaneously enriching on deep layers that is part of a return to collective consciousness, mySelf, and All That Is.

Anyway, I then had a vision after this first one of another indigenous man on a white horse and this time feeling some kind of big cat energy. Perhaps connected with the next geoglyph site we went to, as the animal figure some say could be connected to a mountain lion that changes into a person and helps the Creator create the Earth. Some also think it could be a horse, but that would date it much younger if then a horse and that’s not my take on the energy.

The white horse in my vision felt symbolic of spirit and not an actual living animal…perhaps that pure energy like that of a unicorn that embodies a gateway to the other realms.

The vision then changed into an indigenous woman, only seen from the back. Was this the woman’s voice in my voicemail? Was she an aspect of me, which I felt a connection through? Or was she the The White Buffalo Calf Woman I’ll post info on below?

The woman was cloaked all in white with a white hide that felt to be white buffalo. Again symbolic.

I found this information that feels totally connected and just like my vision on www.lightningmedicinecloud.com (there is also a video there on White Buffalo ~ An American Prophecy):

The Legend & Importance of the White Buffalo

“To Native Americans, the Bison or American Buffalo was a symbol of sacred life and abundance. This importance and symbolism was created from legend:

One summer a long time ago, the seven sacred council fires of the Lakota Sioux came together and camped. The sun was strong and the people were starving for there was no game. Two young men went out to hunt in the Black Hills of South Dakota.

Along the way, a beautiful young woman dressed in white appeared to the warriors and said, “Return to your people and tell them I am coming.” This holy woman presented the Lakota people with the sacred pipe which showed how all things were connected. She taught the Lakota people the mysteries of the earth. She taught them to pray and follow the proper path while on earth. As the woman left the tribe, she rolled upon the earth four times, changing color each time, and finally turning into a white buffalo calf. Then she disappeared. Almost at the same time as her leaving, great herds of buffalo could be seen surrounding the camps. It is said that after that day, the Lakota honored their pipe, and buffalo were plentiful.

This story of the White Buffalo Calf Woman has immense importance to the Lakota and many other tribes. As John Lame Deer, a spiritual leader says, “A white buffalo is the most sacred living thing you could ever encounter.” The changing colors—like some white buffalo do as they age—have significance, too, which must be interpreted by a holy man.

The American Buffalo or Bison is a symbol of abundance and manifestation. The lesson learned by the Lakota is that one does not have to struggle to survive. This is especially true if the right action is joined by the right prayer. By learning to appropriately unite the mundane with the divine, all that will be needed will be provided.

The Native Americans see the birth of a white buffalo calf as the most significant of prophetic signs, equivalent to the weeping statues, bleeding icons, and crosses of light that are becoming prevalent within the Christian churches today. Where the Christian faithful who visit these signs see them as a renewal of God’s ongoing relationship with humanity, so do the Native Americans see the white buffalo calf as the sign to begin life’s sacred hoop.

“The arrival of the white buffalo is like the second coming of Christ,” says Floyd Hand Looks For Buffalo, an Oglala Medicine Man from Pine Ridge, South Dakota. “It will bring about purity of mind, body, and spirit and unify all nations—black, red, yellow, and white.” He sees the birth of a white calf as an omen because they happen in the most unexpected places and often among the poorest people in the nation. The birth of the sacred white buffalo provides those within the Native American community with a sense of hope and an indication that good times are to come.

The telling of a story from one culture to another is complex; without living in the culture, we miss much of the story’s significance. However, it can still have meaning for us if we take the time to learn about the philosophy of the culture from which it came, perhaps meditating or reflecting on its place in our own lives.”

Back to my last voicemail with the woman’s voice, “this is happening,” creates more body chills through me than I already had with all that was unfolding this morning, in light of the above message.

A message of hope.

The last vision I had was of an extraterrestrial being handing something to an indigenous figure. Or at least both hands were reaching toward one another, so it may have just been a communion and transferring of information and connection and not literally a “thing” being transferred, but energy.

This of course indicates, since these geoglyphs are so large and can only be seen in fullness from the sky, that they are intended for reasons more than just Earthly, but also connecting the Cosmos and us to realize our star origins that unite and empower us in integrating and activating the wisdom deep within us.

We then got back in the car and went to the second location we had first seen on our way in. Here there were two sites fenced off to explore.human figure2.jpg

The first, another human looking figure, this time seemingly male as it has a phallus between its legs….or is this indicating a deeper energy associated with the divine male and does this indicate the other being female then? So many questions only answered by going within and retrieving the knowledge stored there.second geoglyph

The second was of a spiral symbol and an animal figure.animal figure and spiral.jpg

Again, no one knows for sure what kind of animal, and some believe the spiral could be a coiled snake, which has it’s own implications of kundalini or life force energy.third geoglyph.jpgthird geoglyph2.jpgthird geoglyph3.jpgthird geoglyph4third geoglyph5.jpg

At these sites I found a few more stones to bring back.

20160301_171409_resized.jpgAs we finished viewing these and made our way back to the car, the sun was just setting behind the mountain creating such an ethereal glow to everything and from my vantage point seeming like a dream and wandering through a vision quest.

Although there are supposedly six of the geoglyphs, we only saw three of them – of course the ones we were meant to see. We don’t know where the other three were. Perhaps much deeper into the desert of the rocky road? We tried looking at an aerial map on our cell phone to see, but couldn’t make anything out but these.

Again, we saw what we were meant to and that the sun’s glow divinely aligned with our seeing and my receiving the visions. Anything more or altered would have changed the course of things.

sunset

I snapped a shot of the sun setting and Dave ahead of me, revealing this altered glow in the atmosphere.sunset2

Right at the entrance to the fenced area before our car there was a cairn someone had created. Dave added a stone to the top on our way out.cairn by entrance as we left.jpg

And when I got in the car and took a look at my stone collection I had rolled in the bottom of my top I was wearing, there were 13.

I immediately thought of the 13 crystal skulls (crystal skull energy is big with me) that were said to have been hidden across the globe at ancient, sacred sites. Twelve of them said to be of the sacred planets of our origins and the thirteenth skull representing the collective consciousness of all the worlds, connecting the knowledge and wisdom of all of them.

Whether any of these things are true or not, whether they will happen or not, I take it all as a message of hope that as we continue to remember and return to the purity of our origins and return to natural harmony, we will understand our power as co-creators in a new reality reflecting this activation of our heart’s true song.

The journey continues.

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.

Crystal Magick and the Journey Within: A Creative Exploration for Personal Alchemy (New Workshop)


August will host a new workshop experience to explore together. Yay!

My plate has been full, but what I’ve come to see is that everything has its divine timing. That said, I’ve been wanting to offer this workshop, and others, for quite some time, so with the recent multiple requests, I embraced the Universal nudge that the timing was now. The collective is ready, so I’m shifting my “plans” to embrace readiness too.

That being said, I’m super excited about this experiential workshop, which will be offered ongoing.

Here is some of what you can look forward to in this workshop:

Crystal Magick and the Journey Within: A Creative Exploration for Personal Alchemy

9am – 5pm Sunday, August 24th in Costa Mesa (if this workshop interests you, please just ask and we can arrange a date to fit different schedules)

This workshop is for the creative, imaginative, and inspired free thinkers and integrative visionaries who want to experience the magickal world of the Crystal Kingdom and your Inner Realm for empowered living and activating greater potentials in simple and fun ways. This is done in a flowing way to allow each person’s unique voice to be heard and valued, which allows greater freedom to explore deeper.

People who are drawn to my workshops are not people wanting to learn structure, rules, and dogmatic approaches. But they are people who are wanting to delve into the discipline of “unlearning” in order to unleash their true gifts. They are ready to explore the nature of their own uniqueness through the different modalities and perspectives available, and come to create their own journey through the process of remembering and awakening what is within.

Reverence and use of crystals goes back to the dawning of civilization and have been used for centuries for their healing powers. Their connection with specific parts of the body and its organs come from traditional Western and Eastern Astrology. 5000+ year old ancient text formulas from India’s Ayurvedic records and traditional Chinese Medicine claim healing with the use of crystals that are now used in modern medical prescriptions. The Christian Bible refers to crystals over 200 times, crystalline structures have been found in the ruins of Babylonia and in the ancient Egyptian and Chinese tombs of rulers, and many of the early civilizations of the Earth (Mayan, Aztec, American Indian, African, Celtic) utilized quartz crystals in sacred ceremonies. These electromagnetic synthesizers that were once only a royal and priestly experience, are now a gift available to us all.

Introducing My Giant Quartz Crystal Skull – Raja Seraphina


Quartz Crystal Skull

My amazing Quartz Crystal Skull – Raja Seraphina

I couldn’t help myself but to snap a photo of my cherished Quartz Crystal Skull friend, Raja Seraphina, as I walked by her upon waking this morning. R.S., as I’ll lovingly call her, sits atop her silver and gold mirror mosaic table at the entry to my sanctuary domain office/art studio/meditative space. The way the morning sun, at just the right angle, was hitting her, was such a beautiful vision to behold.

The sun was peeking through my shutters and the tiny holes in my five silver-chromed dome holders that surround each tear drop bulb of my standing lamp in such a way as to cast a warm glow and project orb-like lights onto my wall tapestry in a random sequence not mirroring how they actually are. These light orb projections are an interesting coding remind me of the Mayan number system.

Definitely felt so celestial and that Raja Seraphina was drawing my attention, of which I took note. 🙂

With her lovely illuminated sign today, I felt it was a good time to officially introduce her to the world with more detail about her energy. My guess is she will be expressing more in the days, months and year to come.

Raja Seraphina came into my life about 4 years ago in 2009 (will be 4 at the end of this month). I had been searching for and intending to find the perfect crystal skull, which took me a while to finally connect with. She is a giant Quartz Crystal Skull that is the same size as a human skull, but she definitely carries extraterrestrial origins.

After having spent two private sessions with the Crystal Skull, Max, and one private session with the Crystal Skull Sha Na Ra, when they came to a spiritual center I frequented in Reno while I was living in the Reno/Tahoe area, I knew that the crystal skull energy was one for me to be working with and tapping into more.

Upon a trip to bring home some crystal friends from the Quartzsite  Rock, Gem and Mineral show in La Paz County, AZ and the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show with dear friend Amy, I had the good fortune of finding R.S. We had ventured to Quartzsite first, and while I found lovely pieces, no crystal skull friend spoke to me. We were actually there at the end of January and very, very start of February, not realizing that the Tucscon Gem Show would not be fully up and running yet. But we ventured there anyway and discovered many of the crystal merchants just setting up shop, so we were able to get first viewing and picking of what was coming out!

There are advantages to getting there at the start and at the end. The start offers you first look and opportunity at the selections and the end offers you the greatest bargains. However, Amy and I had a knack for always drawing in great connections, transactions, and divine timing, which resulted in great buys regardless. 🙂

I had searched the year before at the show and while I found many skulls that were lovely, I didn’t find “The One.” And the same happened at any store I went to in Sedona, or anywhere I would end up, and kept an eye out for one.

But it was just as we first entered the Tucson Gem Show that we stumbled upon a merchant who was just taking out his crystal skulls in the side and back area of his booth. He had a ton of other crystals and the skulls only made up a tiny fraction of his offerings. I immediately was drawn to R.S. and so was Amy (although she wasn’t looking for one herself, she was assisting in my search energetically). We both fell in love and she just felt so right. My pendulum agreed big time finally too!

She definitely was “The One.”

Bringing her home, along with several other large pieces I had gotten on this trip was quite the experience. I had them all in a rolling suitcase and upon my going through security at the airport, I was stopped. Apparently, my crystal skull showed up as something resembling a warning on security visuals and so they opened my back to find out what it was. Low and behold they discovered my Crystal Skull and then I had all of security around in awe and wondering if I was traveling with the Crystal Skulls from the new Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull movie that had “just” come out shortly before. LOL!

Needless to say, they were intrigued and let the little faery supportively rolling more than her weight in crystals, on her way.

And so it came to be that Raja Seraphina came home with me to Lake Tahoe. A little while after, I decided to see if she wanted to share her name. I knew she was more feminine in energy, but what I discovered was something very similar to what my dear Nestor (my departed twin soul bunny) held energetically.

I placed my third eye to hers (and by the way she has a lovely pastel rainbow at her third eye and in several areas around the back and sides of her crown) and waited to receive. What came to me very clearly was the name Raja Seraphina.

This was very interesting to me, as the two names carried very opposite, yet equally powerful energies – one male and one female – and the combination of the two meanings and energy definitely shared the gentle and integrative power of the Divine Male and Divine Female that “she” held:

Raja means king, prince, or chief in India or the East Indies.

Wikipedia shares: Raja (also spelled rajah, from Sanskrit राज rāja-) is an Indian term for a monarch, or princely ruler of the Kshatriya varna.

The Free Dictionary shares: Word History: Raja or Rajah is familiar to us from the Sanskrit rj, “king,” and mahrj, “great king.” The Sanskrit root raj-,“to rule,” comes from the Indo-European root *reg-, “to move in a straight line, direct, rule.” The same Indo-European root appears in Italic (Latin) and Celtic. Rx means “king” in Latin, coming from *reg-s, whence our regal and, through French, royal. Two of the Gaulish kings familiar to us from Caesar, Dumnorix and Vercingetorix, incorporate the Celtic word rx, “king,” in their names. (Rx also forms part of the name of that fictitious, indomitable Gaul Asterix.) Germanic at some time borrowed the Celtic word rx. It appears as reiks, “ruler,” in Gothic, as well as in older Germanic names ending in -ric, such as Alaric and Theodoric, the latter of whom has a name that is equivalent to German Dietrich,“people’s king.” A derivative of Celtic rx, *rg-yo-, meaning “rule, domain,” was also borrowed into Germanic, and is the source of German Reich, “rule, empire.”

As for Seraphina, this name carries a beautiful meaning as well. Seraphina, also Serafina, has a meaning of ardent and fiery, yet also carries a gentle grace. The highest-ranking in the hierarchy of angels, the six-winged seraphim, inspire this name. The feminine form of the Late Latin name Seraphinus, derived from the biblical word seraphim which was Hebrew in origin and meant “fiery ones”. The Latinate version Serafina is also Italian, Polish, and Portuguese.

The story of St. Serafina holds another element to this name’s energy – that of kindness, patience, and love in the face of pain, rejection and destitution. It’s a story of a young Italian girl who through her experiences reaches a state of holiness that imparts a lesson for us of achieving the same serenity and love in the midst of our sufferings.

Needless to say, I hope you enjoy meeting Raja Seraphina as I share her here. She is a beautifully powerful being that I am grateful to have as a friend and teacher.
