Connecting and Creatively Channeling the World Through Travel
I have always been an explorer and adventurer by heart and have been drawn to experience the richness of the many beautiful people, animals, countries and sacred sites across the globe. This is something in my DNA and soul that is undeniably loud and constantly consistent since always. I love to absorb the potent energy and feel the resonance in places far outside of my little world at home and find it food for the soul and providing access to expansive evolution and greater inspirational expression. Whether physically traveling in the 3D world or traversing the sanctums of inner and inter-dimensional travel…it’s food to the soul for me. The experiences I have been honored to share have been integral to my growth and the work I do, in gaining greater compassion, broader perspectives, transcending limiting boundaries and beliefs and adding depth and diversity to my understanding and embodiment.
Most of my travels are for purposes of healing on personal and collective levels and therefore are usually spiritually focused. I always intend to be guided to the perfect journey that encompasses my intentions, supports my dietary needs and draws the perfect experiences and connections, synchronously. And I have found that my journeys are filled with magic and unfold seamlessly and divinely due to following my intuitive guidance. My focuses are to aid the energy of the Earth, integrate the energy within myself and to bring back the messages, energy and visions I receive to imbue into my paintings and work. As a vegan, and spiritually as well as physically focused person on enjoying the totality of human experience in pleasures of food, fun, learning, adventure and sacredness, I love to relay that the world is full of possibilities for everyone and there are no limits to what you can create as joy in your own way no matter where you are.
Realizing that not everyone has the opportunity to travel, see and feel the treasures that inhabit the Earth we share, I always love to share the photos from my journeys and always include collective healing work as my focus of each journey. A way to bring a little piece of the beauty of the world to everyone, whether through photos shared on facebook, through the creations that channel through as a direct result, or the healing work I am drawn to provide in service – all embodying the totality of experiences I embrace.
Over the years I have been blessed to travel to exotic and sacred portal areas such as: Egypt, Peru, Ireland, England, France, Italy, Greece, Thailand, Bimini, Bali, Costa Rica, Mayan Riviera, Hawaiian and Galapagos Islands, Tahiti, Bahamas, Caribbean, Canada and several sacred areas in the US. I actually just returned from Bali, which was amazing and one of my favorite journeys. It is in my heart to continue these explorations of heart and soul whenever I am able to, and receive guidance to, and to always imbue the transformational experiences into everything I share for the highest good of all.
This piece is extremely unique. Photos will never capture its beauty. It changes shades of color depending on how the light hits it. It will at times seem amber with darker brown inclusions, then it will also turn olive green and when held to direct light, will be pale yellow. It is a fantastic and potent tektite. It has portals and many unique inclusions and small rocks amidst the meteoric silica. The shape is also quite extraordinary. The first time I saw it, I felt buffalo instantly, as it has the distinct shape and energy of a buffalo head. You may also see it as an arrowhead or triangular pyramid. This is a very powerful piece that definitely is very unisex.
“Cosmic Bridge Builder” measures about 1 7/8″ long and about 1 1/8″ at the widest point. It is quite substantial at a little over 1″ thick. Parts of it are translucent and others are deeply layered. There is the feeling of an energy or world within an energy/world and the feeling of galaxies within this living being. It is like an ancient, cosmic entity that is alive with brain activity. A compact powerhouse!

I previously posted a blog of my article I wrote on Libyan Desert Glass Tektite. Instead of reposting, you may read about this potent stone at the link below. The Article is called:
The images below show the variations in color, depending on the lighting. From darker (olive green), to medium (amber), to light (golden yellow). Amazing!
I was contacted by the author of “The Healing Power of Trees,” Sharlyn Hidalgo of Alchemical Healing Arts a couple of days ago who was needing some information about my Egypt journeys and experiences with Mohamed Nazmy, the President of Quest Travel (a premier ground operator for tour companies in Egypt), for her upcoming book.
In relaying and recalling the information, I was just so moved as if it was all happening again in the now, that I felt like sharing pieces of the experience here as well. It felt important for some reason and while what I share isn’t even 1/10th of what was experienced, perhaps it will be poignant in some way or synchronous to something others are feeling, experiencing, need, were looking for, or answers a question or intent in some small or big way.
My first journey to Egypt was 4/23/07 – 5/1/07 for the Sacred Sound Healing in Ancient Egypt trip with Mark Patterson, renowned Sound Healer. We had a very small group of only 5, plus Mark and Sheila Reed of Luminati Egyptian Travel. My heart had been beckoning me to return to Egypt for as long as I can remember, always feeling strangely magnetized to its beauty and mysticism. At this time, I was in the midst of painting the 2nd piece of my In Lak’ech series, called “Earth.” This painting incorporated Ancient Egyptian symbolism (as each of the five paintings in the series corresponded to an ancient civilization and the messages and healing needed to be integrated and completed in the now) and this coupled with the deep soul ties I felt throughout life, and synchronous alignment of being led to find this journey, were the calls for my “return.” Many of the paintings and work I create have led me to the power spots around the globe in order to integrate the healing and energy I receive there to infuse into my paintings. The trip was perfect in every way, as an unfoldment of beautiful toning and chakra work at each sacred site and sanctuary to activate our personal empowerment, but my work was not only of a personal nature, but collective healing as well.
In beginning to awaken my own throat chakra and uncovering a lot of deep past life pieces that were needed to help me with the life’s work path I was on, this journey was everything I could have asked for and more. It is much too challenging to put into words the totality of experience it is to walk once again in this sacred land and it was extremely empowering, as well as helpful in connecting the dots of my own work and more of the service I would continue to do in life. It was like reactivation of my inner core being and power, to remember. And synchronously I had become a Reiki Master Teacher, earlier that year, which helped me to facilitate what was needed during the trip for others, the collective and myself. My parents and then husband had been initiated to Reiki 1 just prior as well and this enabled them to assist me when I went through a huge kundalini and deep soul transformative experience upon arrival to Aswan before embarking on the Nile cruise, to prepare me. I discovered sound and my voice, which instantly healed me. So it was a journey of empowerment for everyone involved as well as the humbling of receiving.
The story is so profound, it is too much to explain here. And as quickly as what came over me like a lightning bolt flash of severity, was gone the next day into peaceful bliss, just before entering Philae – The Temple of Isis.
On our last day in the Great Pyramid ceremony, Mark was toning for everyone as we took turns laying in the sarcophagus. But when it came around to my turn to receive, instead Mark was guided by the energies and beings he was channeling, that it was for me to do so instead. And so not only did I produce something amazing from my voice to give to those there and to emanate from the pyramid out to the collective, but I was in this experience, also receiving – receiving back the personal empowerment and recognition of who I was. One of the participants shared this:
“The sound that came from you, while you were in the sarcophagus of the King’s Chamber, is something I will never forget. I’m getting vibed right now. What came out of you was (magical, mystical, angelic, …..) words fail to paint the experience. I’m truly honored for the experience.”
I was chilled to tears and shaking from the activation. And when I heard and saw the reactions everyone had after, it was such the beautiful ending to a most magical and profound journey. To see my mom in tears and hear my dad voice what he saw in the darkness as they circled the sarcophagus I laid in while producing this sound (which was huge coming from someone who is more of a realist and skeptical) was extremely powerful and moving. I did not want to leave.
With just a small group of seven, our journey was intimate and personal and it is then that I first met Mohamed Nazmy, President of Quest Travel, although it was more like a reconnection and reunion. He and his staff are not only an example of heart connective, and compassionate, gracious generosity, but they are an invaluable encyclopedia of knowledge and spiritual depth that helped to make the journey an all-encompassing divine experience. Mohamed and his guide/Egyptologist, Sameh soon became family. I remember how challenged I was to leave Egypt that first time, crying to have to part, but knowing I had left a piece of my heart in what seemed like a second home to me. It was easily an unspoken remembrance and recognition felt for not only Egypt, but for the connection experienced with Mohamed and Sameh. The people of Egypt are beautiful and have a very deep, sacred knowingness you can see in their eyes and feel through their hearts. Mohamed is no exception.
Here is what Mohamed wrote to me after the journey:
“I am so grateful for your love and friendship. I was sure from the first time we have met that we are ONE family and I do also know and reconfirming that you will be coming back “Home” to Egypt many, many times in future trips. I honestly believe that your soul belongs here and you do have lots of work to start and to continue here in Egypt, in which case I will always be here for you and trust me, I will spare no efforts but to make every journey of yours a unique experience for those who are meant for them to join you and you can share your love for Egypt with. I have always trusted the Universe with our tomorrow and I know that we have a BIG role to play in this lifetime for the best interest of our Global family. So let us join each other and others, hand in hand to bring peace on our planet.”
And I did return, only 4 months later, for the 9-9-9 Circle the Pyramid Event – Creating the New Earth, as I felt called to help facilitate this potent gathering in September 2007, being aligned with what my life’s service is about. This time was a whole new experience for me. I realized why the first trip had gone as such, to prepare me for this one. Many on this trip had their own profound experiences and were in need of grounded support, which I felt I was helping to anchor, having already gone through my transformation and so this trip was one in which I was to be of service to everyone involved, as well as to infuse the energy and information I had received.
A group of 18 light-minded individuals (Masters) from the Global Spiritual Community joined together in the King’s Chamber of the Great Pyramid. We’d prepared for this day with intensive work and committed intentions in the days preceding, including a most powerful ceremony at the Step Pyramid of Saqqara. Then, led by Menita Ishmil, a 7th Level Composite Energy channeled by Shelia Reed, we participated in a Ceremony Meditation in the Great Pyramid, with the intention of connecting our planet with the higher dimensions. We were completing nine years of arduous work that had reactivated the Grid for Unconditional Love, to now activate the Planetary Merkaba for global peace and harmony. Forming and sending a powerful fusion of energy into the void of Creation would unlock knowledge into the physical, to further humanity’s enlightenment, thus moving Earth fully into the 4th Dimension, which allows for instant manifestation. At 3:30pm on 9-9-9, our ceremony commenced.
The beauty and magnitude of it cannot in any way, shape, or form be expressed. However, the energy was felt by all, including all those outside the Pyramid during our private 2 hours of meditation. We emerged vibrant and anew, feeling the lightness and expansion that engulfed us. Upon reaching the entrance to what was now a new world, we learned of a beautiful sign that had taken place during this powerful activation. And it was no short of chilling to hear. As we activated the new energy from within, we could feel the Masters all around us. Yet, they could also be felt surrounding the Pyramid with their light and brilliance. The guards, one of our guides, and a man named Tom from Germany (who we learned later had traveled solely for the same purpose, completely separate from us, after receiving a vision to come to the Great Pyramid on this important day), looked up at the top of the Pyramid and to their amazement could see a large falcon hovering just above in the sky. His wings spread wide, like an extension of the Pyramid itself, Horus hovered for nearly a half an hour before disappearing. This spectacular vision could not in any effort be caught on film though. Through the camera lens he did not exist, but to the eye he displayed his magnificence splendidly. It was most miraculous and symbolic of the completion of our work, embraced and supported by the Masters. We continued our journey to the mystical temples of Egypt to further strengthen the foundation of this new energy, rooting it firmly in our hearts and souls, and spreading it deeply to the collective consciousness. Another amazing journey and certainly not the last.
At the Giza Plateau, we all took time to meditate and be with the energy, and I remember tuning in, sending energy and connecting at the heart level with the collective through this portal vortex of powerful energy, tears swelling from the profound love, and I felt a loving and supportive hand on my shoulder from behind. Mohamed (who had joined us, as he often did in energetic support) had come behind me to join and we could feel the camaraderie of our heart’s intentions. And we shared a moment, an exchange, and a hug, as we many times had in recognition of our aligned intentions and service.
Writing all this brings me back, as if it were in the now, and I feel chills, overflowing love, tears and deep gratitude for the experiences, for the connections and for the beauty that remains in my heart and flows through the work I share.
It deepens the knowingness of the recurring themes that run throughout my life, the ancient connections, the responsibility of service, the signs, the messages about the work I do, the heart connection that is of utmost importance in life and the healing work to create a New Earth and new experience in totality for the collective to share and experience.
In remembering, I re-embrace with deepened compassion and understanding. Pieces of Egypt, and of every experience and sacred area I have visited or recall, are part of who I am, who we each are. And through unconditional embracing, we become empowered in the now and able to move forward with conscious knowingness.
I was drawn to intuitively check in today after a flow of inspiration was coming in and received guidance that some of my crystal creations are highly activated in seeking out their keepers right now, some of which are below and include the amazing Libyan Desert Glass Tektite, amongst other potent crystals. They are eager to align in helping to shift the earth energies that comes with synergizing into union with their chosen companions to support in healing. In light of this I am offering these four amazing pieces at very special prices. If you feel called to one, do let me know. (Shipping will be added to the prices reflected.) If you would like more information about the properties of the given crystals let me know and I will send that to you. Read on to discover the magic of Libyan Desert Glass Tektite.
The paraphrased words on Moldavite from “Love is in the Earth” author, Melody: “A pathway of inter-dimensional access to the highest Galactic energies, bringing higher thought forms and patterns through to the Earth plane. A multi-dimensional passage into other realms” equally apply to Libyan Desert Glass. The difference between the two being that Libyan Desert Glass is said to operate with direct focus on the Vishudda (throat) and Anahata (heart) centers, rather than operating in the higher Chakra realms. This quality of its essence creates a source and contact for universal love and harmony, as it acts as a channel for bringing Cosmic energies directly into the center of being. It is for this reason that Libyan Desert Glass was the jewel of Tutankhamen, designed to be worn over the heart in his breastplate, making it a highly sought out gemstone of the pharaohs and royalty.
As a tektite, it is very unusual in being nearly clear and a beautiful pale yellow to green and sometimes with touches of amber to greenish brown color. The vast majority of tektites (natural glass rocks up to a few centimeters in size, which scientists say are formed by the impact of large meteorites on Earth’s surface) are black, with the exception of the beautiful cosmic green Moldavite. This shining impact Libyan Desert Glass ranges from opaque to translucent. Sometimes golden in hue and even with white opaque areas, Libyan Desert Glass also varies in surface texture from having an extremely smooth quality to being covered with small to medium sized, circular indentations, reminiscent of the lunar surface.
Known to scientists since the 1930’s, it is believed, according to scientific knowledge, that this tektite emerged from a collision of a meteorite with Earth nearly 29 million years ago (about 28.5 to be more precise) and is found only in a remote area of the Great Sand Sea of Egypt near the Libyan border. Relatively abundant, they are found in massive deposits with some estimates saying there may be as much as 40,000 tons of it lying on the surface of the desert amongst a small area measuring approximately 130 x 52 km. To others, the origin of Libyan Desert Glass still remains a mystery, with some attributing their existence to an ancient nuclear explosion, others to involvement with extraterrestrial activities, some believing they are pieces of our moon, but modern science explains their creation as result of a meteor impact, although no crater of suitable size or other evidence in support of this has ever been found nearby. Regardless of their mysterious creation, it is for sure they are of extraterrestrial origin.
Libyan Desert Glass is an exceptionally pure form of primarily silica glass formed at extremely high temperatures, too high for normal volcanic activity. According to the impact theory of a meteor striking the Earth’s sand, which is also composed of primarily silica (silicon dioxide), it caused a fusion of sand with intense heat and pressure. Yet, there is research that supports this theory to be incorrect based on homogeneity studies, which in summary show that thin segments of thousands of studied tektites were found to be virtually free of structural inclusions, except for small bubbles. Impact glasses, such as obsidian, will always contain terrestrial inclusions due to the impact of Earth by heated material. Noted homogeneity also was found in individual tektites discovered side by side or fused together exhibiting significant differences.
This, along with typical meteoric material and the high iridium content (an indicator for extraterrestrial origin) being present indicate their classing as tektite, but it may also be that these tektites were formed by a glancing blow from some large extraterrestrial object. The truth may never be known, but there is much speculation and disagreement, you can imagine. Regardless, this ancient stone has been around for quite some time.
The Stone-Age people knew this tektite very well, discovering the glass in the Paleolithic period and lived in the area hundreds of thousands of years ago before it became desert. They had pragmatic ways of using the stone in tools, where it was used as substitute for flint stone in the form of sharp blades and graters. Yet, its the ancient Egyptians that found less practical uses for this “special” stone, as they considered it to be very precious and to hold powerful energy. By the time of the great Egyptian Pharaohs, the area was only accessible by hardy nomads who must have traded regularly with those living in the Nile valley. Therefore, due to its rarity and esoteric value, it became part of religious objects such as the scarab-carved amulet of Tutankhamen, as the centerpiece of his pectoral breastplate. For it to have been carved in the form of a scarab, which is the symbol of the Sun-god Ra, would seem to indicate that the ancient Egyptians were aware of its powerful cosmic connections that this stone draws in.
Today, Libyan Desert Glass is not only a valued and pricey gem beauty for collectors, but its esoteric energies attributed to this “rock of the god” are vastly potent. Its high costs are attributed to the cost of retrieving it on remote expedition from the uninhabitable desert. Yet, its amazing qualities, priced similarly to Moldavite, are well worth the cost to at least own one in your collection. Only recently have those working with stones and crystals started to realize and understand the huge potential that these unique tektites offer.
Some of the metaphysical properties include a long and prosperous life, balancing of male and female polarities, stimulating growth and karmic completion, strengthening the auric field, facilitating communication between the third dimension and the origin of the gem, tool for meditating and connecting with other realms and advanced consciousness, stimulating increased cosmic flow, which can result in acceleration of heart rate, spacey feeling and out-of-body experiences, strengthening and energizing the heart and chest areas and said to bring the holder great luck by ancient cultural belief. It is also a stone of teaching and resonates strongly with the energy of the Hermit card of the Major Arcana of the Tarot deck; the wise teacher who looks within for answers of the universe and receives in silence.
The way that they create inter-dimensional connections between many realms, lends energy to seeing them as “bridge builders” helping to integrate and harmonize all of existence through heart-blending at a universal, collective consciousness level. This energy, amongst others, will become increasingly important and essential as we shift our consciousness and vibrations into that of the new Golden Age of being.
