Expanding Realities Welcoming Greater Possibilities & Soaring New Heights – Aloha!


As I’ve mentioned in a recent post, we have been exploring new terrain and discovering hidden gems all within and around the Lake Tahoe area – our current home base. Places and spaces I never knew about and had never adventured into during the time I’ve lived in this area in the past, but those were times of inner exploration more than the reflection of the outer that that entailed. They were also times of journeying out and beyond this realm, which then turned inside out and bringing the beyond into my now experience here on this Earth plane in order to merge them both and release myself from the confines created.

This new terrain seems to reflect the new inner landscape and more Cosmic blossoming that is opening further, as more truth is revealed and freedom unleashed.

The more free I become, or rather, I return to embodying and just “being”, the more my spirit overflows and cannot be contained in anyway. This reminding me of my dear Nestor and her huge spirit that was too much for her tiny, yet powerful rabbit body, and now also of my sweet Astrid who more and more reminds me of Nestor’s Spirit and truly feels much more to be a wild rabbit than domesticated one – literally she feels like those incredible Snowshoe Hares I fell in love with in Montana –  and that all of the “fight” she has/had was in response to anything trying to take that away from her or to confine her in unnatural ways not aligned with who she knows herself to be – breaking free from the illusions and being powered over.

This was clearly demonstrated with myself this past Saturday on an epic hike we did with friends to a new and incredibly beautiful and expansive spot – Lake Aloha (reminding me not only of beautiful Montana, but of a Cosmic and otherwordly terrain).

I showed up in an aqua bunny tank top and butterfly skirt over my merfaery bathing suit with my Chaco sandals without a jacket and holding my small matching aqua backpack in my hands – my usual. Everyone else was all geared up, big packs strapped around their bodies, hiking shoes and clothes, hiking poles (except for Dave), jackets and beanies/hats (it was 7:30 am and about 48 degrees), etc.

They felt I could use a jacket (although I was content in the sun and ready to take on the wind of the boatride) so I was given an extra one and then proceeded to strap me into my back pack.

I was not too pleased with the whole thing to say the least LOL! Although very grateful for such caring friends.

I felt confined and so not me.

They snapped this funny photo because I looked/felt like I was in a straight jacket and they all agreed it was so “not” me. We all giggled because it was true.

And as we got to the other side after our boat ride, the jacket came off quickly and was returned, and my back pack slowly found itself unsnapped and then eventually only strung over one shoulder.

One of our friends kept laughing along with me noting how I “just wasn’t having any of it” and slowly was morphing back and returning to myself. LOL!

I later got another trail name, “Pocahontas” (to add to Bunny Love and Five Feathers) from one friend because that seemed to depict more of my hiking “style” in terms of that nature connection and being unequipped with “things” yet grounded in that relationship to all that is around me.

They all said I was a Faery and we know that Faeries need to be free.

Anyway, the point is…the more I know who I really am, the less things that aren’t aligned with that are able to be a part of my reality. I can easily morph and adapt when necessary, but I don’t accept something constricting and binding me anymore unless I choose it myself as a temporary experience to move in and out of.

It’s fun to see this play out and how collectively it reflects a lot as well.

What I’ve also found so extremely exciting and wonderful is how many of the new places we’ve been discovering mirror my other favorite place/s in Montana. I’m seeing how those portals keep opening and manifestation is in action big time (that to include intentions that are one-by-one coming into being).

I’m also increasingly experiencing both a contrasting resonance and peace of knowing and being more myself and merging a grounded experience here, and yet detaching more and more from here. It feels like a continued veil removal and cutting out of the “matrix” so to speak or illusion of what all of this here really is about. (777 word count with that) and with disempowering other energies, being able to carve my own reality as was always my/our ability that we forgot.

It’s like fully pulling back the curtain (not just a glimpse) on the so-called magician and seeing/revealing him/her for what he/she truly is – a puppet master pulling the strings.

The strings are getting cut and true magick is being revealed, which ultimately is the origin of being.

Look at the incredible rainbow light being at the bottom center within the water that appeared

I’m constantly walking this experience of both creating a new reality here and living that in fullness of me, and also simultaneously knowing as much as I’ve become comfortable in this new balance, I have Spirit working out other multi-realities that are simultaneously removing this one. If that even makes sense. I feel both peace in what you see of me and harmony in the elsewhere living this out.

That’s likely as far as I want to take that conversation for now, as it’s beyond words to describe and not necessary at this time.

And the experiences here lately have been mirroring this for me, as well as providing opportunity for deeply expanding explorations while hiking and immersing in these realities created.

I find myself both playing in and removing from at once.

Photos captured of me this past Sunday at Lake Aloha and recently seem to continue to reveal this natural dichotomy and harmony, as well as a playful wisdom that seems to have taken full hold and embodiment….unseriously serious and “in things, but not of them.” I am remembering more fully, and it’s a rich fullness of knowing rather than intellectualizing.

I keep hearing about the intensity of energy being experienced by many in varying ways. The huge changes people are going through, choosing, and being thrust into in challenging ways.

And a lot of focus being put on these energetic events this month….experiences we can choose to harness and transmute in ways perhaps not as thought, but to reveal and be more than what you’ve been told (by any source for that matter).

Yesterday was interesting energetically. There were some expected surprises (if that makes sense), some more revealing of odd energies I’m no sucker for, and some deep symbolism that played out in auspicious ways.

The morning kicked off with Dave scaling a 30 foot borrowed ladder from people painting a house just at the bottom of our huge flight of stairs, which I assisted with. It was quite the process not only carrying this thing, but also in moving it into 4 positions next to our large picture windows (portals). The goal was to clean our windows (especially because 3 birds had left full imprints on the center of each) and to protect our bird family from any further trauma and potential death by placing these snowflake reflective decals on them made just for that. We’ve had so many incidences of birds hitting the window (luckily only majorly stunned and no deaths), but we want to avoid this altogether if possible.

Interestingly, birds are very attracted here, as you’ve seen from posts of mine speaking about the birds that have come to land and explore. I also one day had a group of different birds all congregating and fluttering outside the picture window where I was writing (again another manifestation of what I was infusing in the book). So there may be dual reason to their flying into the windows, which could also be a means to get through the illusion and that they feel the portal energy here.

So yes, Dave risked his own neck to save theirs.

But the ladder and climbing to such heights to these portal windows was so symbolic too…and my supporting the anchoring of them for Dave, was kind of a cool symbolism as well.

I won’t bore you with the details of our task, which was highly stressful, but in the end successful.

After, we returned the ladder back down the stairs and I found a Steller’s Jay feather not far from where we took it.

Then Dave said, look over there across the street. There’s a dead Steller’s Jay. So I left Dave and went immediately to him. I find SO many Steller’s Jay feathers and they are always around me these days, as well as all around our deck and trees outside our windows.

I knew I was to take him with me and got the message (reiterated later, before knowing this, by my shamanic friend Dawn) that he was gifting me his wings and tail as well – a merging of his medicine into my own to honor and carry with me, as well as to aid the process/experience I’ve been sharing about. So I picked him up gently and carried him up the 105 steps to the side of the building where we had been

I’ve shared before about Steller’s Jay:

They symbolize bold, fearless energy, and the power of presence and how to use personal power effectively. The crest on their heads connect them to the sky and above, drawing energy and wisdom through the crown and reminding us that our true power needs to be applied in a balanced way that integrates both spirit and body, mind and heart. Since they are very resourceful, they too symbolize adaptability and how to do so more efficiently. They also symbolize a great amount of talent, but a talent that needs to be developed and used wisely. In this way they mirror to us, if one has also appeared for you, that this is a time in your life where you can begin to support the inherent wisdom within you to mature and come forth in a bigger way. Steller’s Jay also alerts us that anything of value, spiritual growth, and relationships takes work and they show us how to activate our internal resources to do this. Communication abilities are strong, access to memories and assimilation of them come to awareness, risk taking, seizing opportunities, discovering new things to explore, balancing intelligence with silence and patience to align with divine timing all come through Steller’s Jay in message. Their crest that reaches up also places attention at the energy centers of the head/crown, indicating an increase in new spiritual knowledge and wisdom that may become activated. – this indicating a psychic channeling of information from the crown. (A message I was given twice in my channeled readings received in Sedona, twice at two different intervals over the last 2 years about energy no longer being moved up the spine like Kundalini usually does for most, but that I’d be channeling through my crown now in this next part of my life.

This gift – like a rebirthing again of the Steller’s Jay energy into my own felt hugely important and supports this grounded soaring of Cosmic origin that I’m experiencing and feels more like embodied spirit.

I did an energetic honoring and blessing and then buried the Steller’s Jay under the picture window portals. I placed 5 stones (one at center and 4 around to the 4 directions).

I then remembered that when we transitioned the previous owner’s refrigerator out of our place to put in our new one, I had found Fiver’s little body I kept frozen in it until Winter thawed enough to bury him properly. I had forgotten he was there and discovered him just two Saturdays ago. I knew the timing would reveal itself on where and when to bury him.

Yesterday was the day. And so after I buried the Steller’s Jay, I went to retrieve Fiver and brought him down wrapped in the sweet little white cloth I’d placed him in that was his bedding. I also remembered the only raw quartz that had been found at Lake Aloha on Sunday – only granite was all around so this quartz seemed out of place. So I knew to bury it along with Fiver and took it too.

I went down and did the same with doing an energetic honoring and blessing for Fiver and buried him a couple of feet from the Steller’s Jay in the same manner. After, I found 2 small heart stones that I placed on top of the center stones to each of their burials.

Everything felt full circle…closure…great peace….and I knew these dear ones would not only aid others to journey beyond and through the portals as they have, were, and now guarded as way showers, but would also infuse their wisdom, protection, and energy to the other mice, birds, and animals here, not to mention be guardians and teachers of that wisdom for anyone living here.

Both of their spirits soaring and a part of my own – of anyone’s ready to listen and remember.

And I’m listening to Astrid as well and I sense she, too, is exhibiting what I’m discovering along with her.

Just in the last few days she’s expanded as well and came to me for the first time in a dream – the way my sweet friends communicate with me in more depth. In the dream she hopped very high with exuberance, three times for me. It not only indicated her joy, but to me felt reflective of these new leaps and heights of experience now opening and the #3 has its own significance for me as well.

And then I woke immediately finding her in wake life running and jumping too. She also just learned how to hop up on the bed and is excited about that – this morning hopping up and me finding her whiskers brushing my face, as she came to wake me.

Things are definitely and sweetly expanding and reaching new heights (in all directions) and there is this sense of having reached a precipice and just catching glimpse and feeling of what lies beyond…and beyond…and beyond…

Portals of Experience Continue to Open


20638889_10213335123799772_2119356322398192842_n.jpg

This is my second time living in Lake Tahoe, but truly this last nearly year (will be come October) that we’ve been here has been the most explorative and enriching yet. Not only have we experienced the most epic Winter in the last 40+ years, but have been blessed with incredible, like-minded friends, a wonderful and supportively inspiring home base, welcomed in a new family addition (Astrid), experienced a heap load of magick, and have seen many shifts and transitions anchor in with the closing and opening of new doorways of experience.

I’m/we’re seeing more of this area than we ever have in all the time we’ve lived here so far, and are blown away at the discoveries that will take us years to fully experience…not to mention it’s all different within each season. Like right now we get to enjoy the wildflowers and incredible alpine lakes everywhere gushing with waterfalls and creeks. Other times it is the salmon spawning, the beaches, foraging, crystal-rich areas to discover treasures, water time kayaking or swimming, fall colors, white winterlands, but always plenty of outdoor exercise within every season.

IMG_20170810_113332796

It’s continued to be an interesting journey in observing and playing with the energies all around, as well as within. So much diversity and contrast in experiences and realities right?! None of it wrong, right, bad, good, worse, better…simply choices and possibilities. I do find it easy to hover around energies that don’t match how I feel frequency-wise and increasingly experience clarity with things and greater compassion even if things don’t match. Very refreshing for a Pisces who struggled with this all of her life and not knowing how I could still be a me without compromising the love and connection I feel to everything. I have to repeat…this is the most natural and peacefully balanced I’ve ever been and am always in awe of how that can continue to deepen.

Life here on Earth is truly merging and it feels both grounding, but also Cosmically freeing, while I’m seeing and experiencing it for what it truly is. Perhaps some of you are feeling this too?

20664602_10213344184506284_4982003604901325006_n.jpg

We’ve been moving energy quickly and manifesting a ton quickly, which is pretty wild how fast stuff has been happening, but when you’re in the “zone” and following the flow of energy, you definitely do experience that incredible alignment. It’s amazing to look back and see how these processes have shifted over the course of your life for sure with putting into motion the things you’ve learned and doing the work.

20708293_10213335122999752_9221496051794761220_n

But truly it’s been such a gift to experience so much of Lake Tahoe and the outlying areas here. There is SO much beauty and we keep discovering hidden gems all the time – not to mention hidden portals to other realities. Never a dull moment or feeling of not having enough choices and things to do on any level, but mostly it’s the Nature time that infuses my heart with inspiration and expansive love.

20729412_10213344075703564_8089717112172051250_n.jpg

The energy abound lately has been so potent and fertile. I can’t tell you how powerful manifestations have been and immediate things unfold that are intended. This month’s energies really lend a hand to that, but in general we really are experiencing an accelerated evolution of potential.

20729391_10213343656293079_3236721317334441972_n.jpg

And I’m increasingly experiencing how the things I write about in my new book, manifest in the outside world around me. It’s really a wow-factor and nobody would believe me unless they were right here going through it all alongside me.

20664916_10213344439912669_6623490706609583358_n.jpg

During all of this I’ve been seeing how the things I envision and intend, because I’m open to the highest version for the highest good of all to manifest (rather than fixating on how that “should” be) are revealing themselves in expansive ways that embody the essence of it all with greater support and all-encompassing benefits.

20664770_10213343969180901_2486878477650804327_n.jpg

The photos shared in this post are captures of some of the energy lately that I’ve been experiencing – truly like activations and initiations into this new version of reality unfolding. There are also photos of some of the awe-inspiring beauty of new areas of exploration – one of which reminded me of my other favorite place in Montana and my experiences there.

20708397_10213335097399112_1473663090620690519_n

Portals are opening everywhere! Are you ready to step into a greater version of you and greater possibilities collectively?

20728324_10213344454273028_7211672446749758209_n.jpg

I find that the more flexible and open to entertaining any combination of possibilities, the greater fulfillment I feel and find even more support and interconnected threads ready to make things happen.

Gratitude deepens daily and harmony is being remembered from the origin song seeded within.

Tree Love & the Journey


tree hugger.jpg

I thought I’d post this as a short blog after having posted it on social media because it’s special to our hearts. The photo you see here is one that our friend, Seba Johnson (history making Olympian as the first African American woman to ski in the Olympics and youngest alpine ski racer at age 14, vegan since birth, actor, speaker, and simply loving soul), captured a couple of days ago on one of the hikes we’ve shared with her since meeting and spending time with her while she’s here in her childhood home of Lake Tahoe working on her memoirs.

This is a very meaningful tree to us. During the winter Dave and I would snow shoe here and this little tree, now about 3-4 feet taller, used to get plummeted by snow and the wind from the slope it lives on at the bottom, completely bending it over to the ground with the weight.

We would free him and dig him out every time we’d pass after a snow storm, so that he had a chance and wasn’t permanently bent. We’d do it to other trees too, but this one in particular would get hit the hardest and became connected to us.

19990327_10213037217912311_4707828857897998027_n.jpg

Seba (pictured above with me on our 7.4 mile, 1200 feet climb Tahoe Rim Trail hike) thought it would be a cool idea to take photos of us with him over time to see his progress. As you can see he’s pretty straight even though at a slight angle, but doing well! During winter this was not the case and we wondered how he’d fare, as he was completely bowing to the ground.

Other large trees above him haven’t been so lucky and really are curved, twisted, warped, and likely will fall at some point. This little one was born in a challenging spot, but it is just those challenges that make you stronger and provide even more to share with others.

19884504_10154584390550766_3976269434322848776_n.jpg

Life is definitely an adventure and often times a challenging journey.

Every little thing we do, DOES make a difference, even if you can’t see it right now or are provided immediate feedback and affirmation of it. You simply need to follow your heart, regardless of any reward, knowing it’s just about being in your highest essence in each moment and being in that unconditional universal love as much as possible.

We’re grateful for the time we’ve spent with Seba, her sweet dog companions Braddock and Langston, and being able to share some special places to our hearts with her, and so many synchronicities we share including living in the same place she used to (her condo is just below ours) where she spent her childhood and ski training days.

As an animal activist and vegan all of her life, enjoying the magickal and synchronous signs, honoring of Nature and Earth, our being just 2 and a half months apart in age, all adoring Lake Tahoe as our home and special portal space (she plans to live here again too), and both currently writing books, we had a lot of beautiful connections that will be lovely to keep touching in on, which now will include the growth and life of our special tree that will mirror the life shifts we all go through.

He already mirrors the challenges we’ve each been faced with and now will reflect what we embrace, nurture, and embody to bring forth for the rest of our lives.

We’re grateful for the time we’ve been able to share with our new friend Seba and for the journey that continues to provide rich experiences and beautiful surprises around each corner.

I look forward to seeing how our journeys evolve from here, and how our beloved tree will experience his own growth and evolution. We’ll be sure to nurture him, as long as we are here and as much as he nurtures us and all of life that depends on him and Nature.

Magick Crystal Wands Are Back ~ Commissions Now Accepted


If you recall, I started creating and offering Magick Crystal Wands, which all found new homes, including one with me. Then needed to take a break to funnel my time and energy, but knew I’d come back to these creations again when the energy was in flow. Well, while in Australia I got the message to begin again and even received a couple of commissions from people there to add to the ones I already had in the States. But this go-around, rather than create and then offer them, I’ll only be taking custom commissions and creating on a per-order-basis. This will also assist with less disappointments and people not missing out on the one they wanted because it got spoken for already. One will be created just for you.

18 Magick Crystal Wands will be made available, as that is how many spirited wood branches I have found that are ready to be channeled. This includes the commissions I already have.

If you’ve already spoken with me about a custom piece, you will now be able to place your order for the size and pricing that fits your needs.

I have placed them into categories by size and potential work/adornments involved. Each will include any variation of intuited crystals, feathers, silver, gold, or combo wire wrapping, satin cording, and other adornments.

There will be a limited number per size category available. Once you place your order, I will be in touch to discuss the creation and timing to complete it.

You may order yours below.

If you try to order and are unable, this means the item you’ve chosen is SOLD OUT, but you may try one of the other size options.

Shipping and handling is not included and will be an additional charge applied once shipped, as these will need to be specially wrapped and weight/location assessed at time of shipment. I can take international orders, but please keep in mind that these will be unusually sized packages due to the delicate nature of the item and therefore shipping may be quite pricey on top of the international nature of transit:

8 Smaller/Thinner Magick Wands divided into two categories of less to more intricate and also differences in size or types of crystals used:

Here is the info again on these channeled creations, in case you forgot or if this is new to you,.

Magick Crystal Wands are of a very whimsical, raw, organic, and imperfectly perfect nature. Substantial, mystical, and fashioned as if the Fae themselves hand-crafted them from treasures collected in Nature from her forests, waters, and retrieved from Cosmic portals.

These Spirit friends are a gentle way to invite powerful energy to partner in rituals, healing, activating intention, manifestation, drawing and focusing concentration of energy. They are personal instruments that hold a lot of power. Wands carry a very male oriented energy, but each of these has channeled through as an integration of sacred male and female in harmony by the additional elements interwoven.

I have found them extremely potent to combine with my Reiki practice, especially in terms of using them in Reiki Healing Attunements and drawing the symbols with my wand, rather than with my hand. Wow! No joke….the last one I did this way had the things I intended all manifesting within a couple of hours.

I don’t envision or imagine what they will look like. I have no idea until the moment, what is happening and as if in trance, I just allow my hands to create the magick wanting through. It is a very flowing, fun, potent, and even physically grueling process for my hands and fingers, amazing me at each corner how every single part fits like a puzzle piece, even though they’ve been gathered at different intervals, times, and places.

Every twist and weave is deliberately threaded and every piece lovingly placed, all by hand without tools and completely surrendered to guidance channeling through, with me as a conduit for their manifestation.

The branches of wood are spirited with life force and almost lit up on the forest floor while hiking, as if beckoning me to hear their call, “It is me. I am ready and offer myself to your hands. Please be my channel of awakening to the purpose I am alive for.”

And so I listen.

I leave the wood just as it is, other than to softly sand into splinter-less touch that absorbs the linseed oil I lovingly nurture into their skins for longevity, which produces a lovely sheen and enhancement to their natural beauty and color.

And the rest is also about listening to the elements wanting to be brought forth, silver, gold, and silver/gold blends of wire, satin cord and thread of robin’s egg blue, antique rose, marigold yellow, and other nature tones, crystals and stones, metal floral/leaf adornments, vegan leather, feathers from my beloved bird tribe, and lots of love.

This is a first for me to use wire wrapping and it is intentional that with everything, including this, for it all to be a mixture of raw and refined. Nothing is to be perfected in mind, but flowed in Spirit.

And each is infused with added intention and activation by any or all combinations of sound through my 432 hz binaural beat theta wave pair of crystal sound bowls, chakra drum, tibetan bowl, and my own voice.

They are ancient, timeless, and also seem to have walked through portals from places and realms beyond this one, perhaps reflections of pieces I’ve retrieved along the journey to manifest at this time and place for what is to come.

And they do indeed blend a synergy of balancing elements within each as well, drawing the power and beauty of their purity in a very focused directive.

Nature and Cosmos are both alive and strong in each.

The ancient and visionary are merged.

The power and benevolence of boundless love for the highest good is alive and strong.

Morning Bear Surprise ~ The Magick Continues


black bear.jpg

In line with yesterday’s post on Nature’s Powerful Reflections of Resonance ~ Plus Bear Magick & Medicine I thought you might get a kick out of seeing these photos and video of this morning’s visitor just as much as I did. Yes, Black Bear was here again! This time seeking us out. That’s 5 Bears in the last 3 days now. Talk about potent energy all at once!

black bear 2

We’d just gotten out of bed and went to open the blinds when Black Bear appeared just below our window. These are just a couple photos I captured, but I thought I’d include a link to the video so you can see what a gift this was to witness a playful and delightful display.

I couldn’t upload it to this post, so I’m including the link to my Instagram feed if you’re interested in seeing it and the other two videos from Easter there. And if you’re on Instagram, perhaps you might connect there so we can share and follow along together there more easily.

Enjoy and bask in the message of Black Bear medicine that is reflected to you!

Nature’s Powerful Reflections of Resonance ~ Plus Bear Magick & Medicine


Just sharing a short post reflecting the powerful nature experiences and medicine that took place each day over the weekend, back-to-back. Very potent and mirroring of the shamanic energy I’ve moved more deeply into over the last two years. This also reflects the rising Schumann resonance that hit an all-time high for Earth this weekend, spiking on Easter itself.

Laura had just sent me a link this morning about this (I wasn’t familiar with this term) and shared about its connection to the collective’s awakening. The link basically explained this as the natural resonance or frequency of the Earth that had a huge peak this weekend (Easter was its spike, as mentioned) to the highest recorded value it’s been.

I call it “a return to natural harmony,” which has been my focus since I first really started connecting dots on my own awakening path.

Anyway, beginning Friday there were some very pronounced experiences that took place alongside a lot of beautiful and instant nature reflections, as manifestation to things in the moment taking place or being thought or spoken of.

This included a magnificent sighting of a Bald Eagle on our Fallen Leaf Lake hike while Lynne was visiting, not more than maybe 1/2 an hour after talking about Bald Eagles with someone we met along the way.

bald eagle

The Eagle swooped ahead of us through the trees, then circled round over the edge of the lake and disappeared to the left, later to be found by us sitting atop a tree where he sat waiting and connecting with us for quite some time. Lynne got some great shots with her zoom camera (just received them so here’s one above), but during the time I was watching him he tucked his head under and plucked out one white feather that floated off into the wind. I thought that was quite significant.

IMG_20170415_171236045_HDR

Then the next day when my parents surprised us for a visit, we took them on a walk and right when we got to an opening where two benches sat overlooking the lake, a Sun Dog appeared above Tahoe and we sat there for about 10 minutes taking its beauty and symbolism in together. I love how in these photos the sun appears as a hexagon.

IMG_20170415_171227373_HDR.jpg

And on Easter, yesterday, (right after seeing this lenticular cloud appearing like a UFO over Lake Tahoe’s portal) Dave and I decided to drive up to Tahoe Meadows for a snow shoe hike, which took us to the top overlooking the lake.

17990819_10212121172611751_6215040015477821627_n

We made it there just as the snow was about to blow in, which it did on our descent back along with strong winds that made the journey double the work, along the way passing through trees with singing and visiting Chickadees – all quite magickal.

But it was on our drive from the top, back into Incline Village where we were going to get a drink at the Lone Eagle Grille overlooking the water, that we came upon a mother Black Bear and her three yearlings.

18010246_10212123654633800_8612240039304539984_n.jpg

We hadn’t seen bears since our RV adventure on the Magick Bus up in the Montana and Canadian Rockies area where we encountered Grizzly Bears several times (twice on one hike along our path – one of which was a mother Grizzly with three cubs too, as well as a few times off the side of the road close to our car, and Black Bears a couple of times).

I also had some potent Bear dreams and visions while on that journey, eventually leading me to purchase a Native-made copper ring with Bear totem on it.

But yesterday it was a Black Bear family that graced us with their presence, although their fur had turned golden and reddish, making them appear a bit like Grizzly Bears, minus that signature pronounced shoulder hump.

Anyway, we caught glimpse of a yearling running across the road, then slowed and saw that he’d been going over to where mom and the others were pine cone foraging.

At first we only saw mom and two yearlings, but after a few minutes, a third appeared. This being very symbolic to a significant unfolding taking place in my life.

They were not newborn cubs, given their size – their mom likely had them last Winter -so now were yearlings coming out of hibernation and looking for food. Young bears stay with their mom about two years and are born during hibernation. You can still see the mother’s nipples in the photo above.

We stopped to observe them, sitting in our car just across from them. They were completely absorbed in eating and not at all disturbed by our presence in observing them, which allowed me to watch and receive what they had to share.

This reflected to me a time in my own life where I am nurturing what I’ve received in inner reflection during my own period of hibernation. A time of nourishing my soul needs in Spring’s cycle of renewal and creative birthing.

Eventually all of the yearlings made it over by mom and I was able to capture some video I shared on social media – Instagram and Facebook – along with these photos here.

So much bear magick and fearless ancient medicine! Not to mention, empowered Sacred Feminine energy and that Divine Mother embodiment that has become so deeply experienced within me.

I love their strength and transformative energy. They remind me of the courage I have within to call upon in order to take action without fear, while remaining grounded and in rhythm with Earth and Nature’s cycles.

As I observed them, it was a reminder of observing myself in every moment and self-reflecting – something I do all the time by stepping outside of myself and remaining detached, as I review what I am doing, thinking, or feeling.

Their coming out of hibernation (just like I’ve been quieter during the Winter months) also was reflective for me in that creative rebirthing taking place in my life currently after having gone through my own vision quest, returning with even greater comfort in the solitude of my own company,  enjoying exploring the dark and unknown, going deeper into intuitive trust, and with Nature as my constant companion and guiding force.

Their coming out mirrors my own vulnerable, but strengthened reveal.

It has been a time of deep soul searching during the Magick Bus journey and these Winter months, really seeding what eventually I would bring forth into the world anew. And that was done through decisions made from the power of my Spirit.

Bears teach us about knowing the timing on things and aligning with the “when” and “where,” which specifically messaged me in trusting how things are unfolding with my life and new, and especially with something I’ve been waiting to hear about.

In the meantime, the teaching of laws of respect and boundaries that Bear brings forth continues to get reiterated for me. Both in strengthening, anchoring, and voicing my own, as well as mindfully being present and mutually honoring of those around me.

And because of this mutual honoring, there was no need for mother Bear to feel threatened, nor did I disrespect her boundaries invisibly understood.

In this way we could mutually be in a safe space together and share the love, connection, and reflective wisdom.

17990868_10212123655193814_7925671131332550325_n

I loved watching the yearlings rolling the pine cones with their big paws, while trying to get the nuts from the cones. This was a reminder of keeping that playful energy alive (so reflective of the time spent with Lynne the days leading up), and simply of my own inner child that thrives on playing, laughing, giggling, and being imaginatively silly and in the moment with the energy moving through me.

While Bears reflect the natural leader abilities within us when they show up so profoundly, they also summon us to relax into our vitality, bringing that forth in innocent, creatively passionate channels of self-expression.

Such beautiful gifts and reflections received and integrated.

Thank you.

Lightness, Laughter & Love ~ Full Circle Renewal & Inspiration


17952818_10212100659378933_5083627989870521483_n.jpg

It’s been a fully packed and fun filled last several days with Lynne Day “in da house,” but wanted to send out some Easter wishes of renewal, creativity, and cosmic expansion. Between the back-to-back Sedona and friend visit here in Tahoe, it’s really felt like a celebration of Spring, joy, and inspiration. I know not everyone is experiencing the openings and flow, but within every experience is opportunity for us to embrace and make new choices.

It’s not that I don’t come up against challenges or have a lot of contrasting things come up around me, but it’s my approach to life, the inner peace I’ve found, understanding things from a bigger picture perspective, and having put to practice a process that is now natural, that enables me to be in the experience and reality of my own choosing without being thrown off my balance.

Anyway, I don’t intend this to be a long blog, but did want to reshare this post on Easter and rabbits for anyone interested and open to exploring more:

Rabbits, Cosmic Eggs, Pagan Goddesses & Transition – Easter Origins & Awareness

And I also wanted to briefly share the joyous and inspiring energy from the last few days of Lynne’s visit, which although was only 2 1/2 days, was quite rich and packed in a bunch.

17903499_10212095733095779_6619711197670651465_n17952871_10212096760001451_2384592350207324205_n17903332_10212096699319934_778324414034754139_n17884393_10212095923980551_5256187825029751155_n17757318_10212095862379011_4021366238778362859_n17903724_10212095863139030_654027178143525493_n17951573_10212096840683468_7542133170395046990_n.jpg17884178_10212097010567715_1704858302938674847_n17903923_10212108815342827_9007543991697055301_n17862770_10212108804462555_2490103517578458280_n

We got to experience a lot, which included belly laughs until we literally cried and cried, shenanigans galore (or as Lynne calls them, bananigans), good food, good conversation, lots of nature time and exercise (Lynne and I would go out on a hike before lunch, then again with Dave after lunch, outdoor music and food, play time with the kitties, a bald eagle sighting and connection (her spirit animal), lots of goose fun, tons of discoveries and treasures, both snow days and sunshiny warm and crystalline still days, a sound bath by me with my crystal bowls, and yes, banana time! (For more background on the “bananas” please visit the link on Lynne’s name at the beginning).

On our last day banana we decided to seal our banana relationship once and for all with a little ceremony and activation all choreographed by us, directed and inspired by Lynne, and executed solely by us. You’ll see some of the photos below of the “nuptials” and celebrations….the banana adventures have just begun!

(Photo disclaimer: It has to be mentioned that these shots were all taken solely by us bananas…yes, even the panorama shots of us at both ends was intricately directed by Lynne and executed by us where one of us would start out in position while the other started the panoramic filming…then once out of lens would run and take over camera duties while the other ran into position in time to be in the shot. Lol!! And we did them in one take!!!!)

If you follow along on Instagram or Facebook, I’ve already posted our journey there, so I’ll just share some of the photos here to hopefully infuse some lightness, laughter, and love in your day.

As truly, that is what matters the most.

How much you can find the humor in things, enjoy what there IS, take things lightly, and feel the love constantly flowing through you.

After the “nuptials” we met Dave for another outdoor, live music lunch before Lynne flew off.

My parents then gave us a surprise visit a few hours after Lynne left.

Isn’t my mom adorable? She posed this way herself with two pine cones (one she found and one I found for her – both she was taking home). As above, so below….A true Faery!

We took them on a walk along the Lake, which gifted us all this, which I’m sharing with you and hope it brings all things full circle, as I’ve been seeing in my own life with everything.

Nature’s Breath ~ The Space Between Worlds


As we approach Spring Equinox, I felt a simple sound channeling wanting to come through that felt to reflect this shift from one season to another, from experience to experience, of releasing the old to step into the new, and that stirring of a seed within the dark, nurturing womb reaching through the dirt to touch its tendrils to the light. This is about the moments in between and the deliberate presence of breath during the transmutation….until the last moment. Much love to all.

Magick Crystal Wands Now Available


It’s been a busy few days, so it took a while to find the right space to tune in with the Magick Crystal Wands and confirm which would be offered and which, if any, would remain with me. My initial instincts were correct, although I have a special bond with each, on which one was in fact meant for me. So, I’ll just briefly share the three that are available and you can explore this link for more photos and information on each of them if they call: Magick Crystal Wands

But first off, yesterday was quite a gift as we made our way to Fallen Leaf Lake where I’ve discovered hidden treasures in the past, including some feathers and wand. The road in is challenging to get in on because of all the snow and no plowing there, so all of Winter it’s not been accessible. But some vehicles have gone through more recently it seemed, making a pathway and so we entered, parking in a different spot, as it got harder as we went along and then trekked across the snow to the lake.

It was fun to discover that around the perimeter of the lake it was all thawed out, but getting in there was full of snow. This was what seemed like divine timing and meant to be, as there was a treasure chest of gifts awaiting me, not to mention some magickal finds like this Aladdin’s lamp (yes, I made some wishes) and some sweet mallard hen feathers after a connection with a mallard couple. The stones along the beach at water’s edge were gorgeous too in marbled rainbow colors.

It truly was a beautiful experience, including the connection with the ducks and how the hen literally gifted me 6 feathers (nice symbolism) after they deliberately came over and she preened and pulled them out for me to get once they left to nap by a rock in the water. That was after they swam over and walked up to where I sat to say hi when I called them over. I smiled with delight.

And to my surprise this thawing unveiled a lot of wood pieces singing out to me and so yes, there will be quite a few more wands in the future. I also found me another amazing staff.

Although I now know there will be more, this is not going to be for some time, as I need to focus on some important things right now, then will be making my large pieces first, and then the wands. 

That was a little detour, although connected, to share the magick of yesterday and the future surprises.

But back to my original blog post link I shared above.

In that post, you can learn about all that has gone into them, the materials/elements, including time spent infusing each with added intention and activation by any or all combinations of sound through my 432 hz binaural beat theta wave pair of crystal sound bowls, chakra drum, tibetan bowl, and my own voice.

I did receive quite a few messages from people about which one they initially felt a draw to, so I’ll be contacting them first, in order of messages received, to see if in fact they still would like to bring them into their life.

Many times it can be an instant connection meant to be, other times it’s about that energy exchange in the moments of seeing them that is only needed, and still other times the investment of commitment doesn’t translate the same as desire.

So, if you feel one of these are for you, you can still message me with your desire, as they are not yet spoken for officially.

These are the three available with their corresponding value. Each will come with a small accompanying gift.

Neptune & Nymph Wand (God of the Sea, sacred song and spirit of the Nymphs, and MerFaery energy) – $270 + shipping/handling – SOLD

 

Lightning Rod, Sacred Spiral Wand (Grouse feathers and powerful transformation energy) – $130 + shipping/handling – SOLD

 

Twin Seer, Bridge Weaver Wand (As Above, So Below, Goose feathers and double focused energy) – $300 + shipping/handling – SOLD

Magick Crystal Wands ~ Spirit in Action


I’ve been mentioning my being absorbed in channeling some creations alongside my current focuses, and on social media I posted a sneak peak of these pieces a couple of days ago. I know several people were anxious to learn more and see more of them, so this is that share. I didn’t set out to create them, but the nudge was strong and therefore I did. This turned into creating Magick Crystal Wands, but of a very whimsical, raw, organic, and imperfectly perfect nature. Substantial, mystical, and fashioned as if the Fae themselves hand crafted them from treasures collected in Nature from her forests, waters, and retrieved from Cosmic portals.

Here the wands rest, charging with my other personal wands and crystals after their sound baths.

 

These Spirit friends are a gentle way to invite powerful energy to partner in rituals, healing, activating intention, drawing and focusing concentration of energy. They are personal instruments that hold a lot of power. Wands carry a very male oriented energy, but each of these has channeled through as an integration of sacred male and female in harmony by the additional elements interwoven.

Every twist and weave is deliberately threaded and every piece lovingly placed, all by hand without tools and completely surrendered to guidance channeling through, with me as a conduit for their manifestation.

I didn’t even envision or imagine what they would look like. I had no idea until the moment, what was happening and as if in trance, I just allowed my hands to create the magick wanting through. It was flowing, fun, potent, and even physically grueling to my hands and fingers, amazing me at each corner how every single part fit like a puzzle piece, even though they’d been gathered at different intervals, times, and places.

I was amazed at how the flow and shape of the wood itself was the perfect curvature of the crystals that were to be placed there. And the feathers, found along our Magick Bus journey, were the perfect energy to carry the wands on wings of intent and empower their Air nature to channel Spirit.

The branches of wood are spirited with life force and almost lit up on the forest floor while hiking, as if beckoning me to hear their call, “It is me. I am ready and offer myself to your hands. Please be my channel of awakening to the purpose I am alive for.”

And so I listened.

I left the wood just as it was, other than to softly sand into splinter-less touch that absorbed the linseed oil I lovingly nurtured into their skins for longevity, which produced a lovely sheen and enhancement to their natural beauty and color.

And the rest was also about listening to the elements wanting to be brought forth, silver, gold, and silver/gold blends of wire, satin cord and thread of robin’s egg blue, crystals and stones, metal floral/leaf adornments, vegan leather, feathers from my beloved bird tribe, and lots of love.

This was a first for me to use wire wrapping and it was intentional that with everything, including this, for it all to be a mixture of raw and refined. Nothing was to be perfected in mind, but flowed in Spirit.

And each was infused with added intention and activation by any or all combinations of sound through my 432 hz binaural beat theta wave pair of crystal sound bowls, chakra drum, tibetan bowl, and my own voice.

They are ancient, timeless, and also seem to have walked through portals from places and realms beyond this one, perhaps reflections of pieces I’ve retrieved along the journey to manifest at this time and place for what is to come.

And they do indeed blend a synergy of balancing elements within each as well, drawing the power and beauty of their purity in a very focused directive.

Nature and Cosmos are both alive and strong in each.

The ancient and visionary are merged.

The power and benevolence of boundless love for the highest good is alive and strong.

And they have manifested during some potent time periods of recently, including one being fully birthed on the Pisces New Moon Eclipse – my birthday.

For now I’ve taken a break before continuing with the rest of the creations to come – to include a scepter, 2 staves, and a headpiece – as there is much to integrate and prepare for with these very large and even more involved channelings that I’ve been told will be instruments for opening portals.

I wasn’t sure if any of the creations would be offered to others, but I’m sensing that likely 3 of the 4 Magick Crystal Wands will be. The large pieces unlikely, but either way I will share them when they come to fruition.

I have a feeling I know which one will be staying with me. That said, I’m still awaiting final word on which will be available, but am told to share them now, as perhaps this will be confirming as to the ones reaching out to others. Please feel free to message me if one speaks to you.

There is much more to them than I can write in words, but perhaps you’ll feel that through viewing them.

And with that, I’ll share them each, in the order they were created. I love them all SO much. It will be hard to part for sure.

The first is my Neptune & Nymph Wand.

This piece is quite something and embodies Neptune’s potent energy (God of the Sea) along with the sacred song and spirit of a Nymph. There is an essence blend of MerFaery here too.

Encrusted with Ice Quartz, turquoise, and Double Terminated Quartz down its shaft, a thicker silver wire wraps them in a webbing reminiscent of scales on a fin or ancient netting unsuccessfully capturing a Mermaid yet here now holds her treasures dear.

Near the bottom of the webbing thread of satin cord and silver wire, encircled like a floral wreath, I’ve threaded what might have been the crown worn by a Nymph that slips in and out of waters from the woods, or a MerFaery who loves all of Nature, but finds home in the sea. Both being able to slip in and out of land and water, but most at home with watery worlds that remind her of her origins and the Cosmic source of all life.

The wand is almost scepter-like and the way the wood naturally is carved, is like it is dripping with the waves of Neptune’s energy, or a light-bearing torch to travel to the depths of the ocean’s abyss. It almost looks like a wax casting and the area where the stones sit, is like a doorway through the wand revealing its inner beauty and jewels within its treasure chest sanctum.

Sitting atop the forked wand is a powerful Lemurian Quartz with a rare timelink to the past.

I think it all speaks for itself.

 

The next comes to us as a wizard’s gift. This is my Merlin & Lady of the Lake Wand.

This wand called to me from the shore of Fallen Leaf Lake here and I was taken back by its appearance immediately. It was already fully carved, smoothed (as if someone had rigorously sanded it), and has a beautiful golden blonde coloring with perfectly spaced dots in a design along its shaft. I do not know the type of wood it is, but I know it is not of this world, as it was ominously placed out in the open like this for me to find it, singing to me like a wizard’s wand would.

On its own, without any added adornments, it is a powerful and complete wand, but I immediately knew that it desired elements to bring forth the harmony of its embodiment.

This to include three irridescent blue Mallard feathers and one Blue Jay feather at the center. Along with these beauties, there sits a Tibetan Quartz above them at center and a combo of silver and gold wire individually woven and ending in triple spirals.

And at the top, a very special Quartz point wrapped in an intertwined gold and silver wire ending in a spiral at each side.

The Quartz at top is a small point, but large in its presence. Since this wand was already potent on its own and had a perfectly rounded bottom and softened diagonal point, it did not want any large stone, but simply one to enhance and act as a fine-tuned channel at top.

It was evident which crystal it would be, as only this one had the exact slant to its bottom that perfectly matched flush to the top of the slant of the wand.

But as small as this Quartz point is, it is no ordinary crystal. It happens to be the one that Fiver, the mouse who I helped transition in peace and love, jumped aboard to fly off into the otherworld when he transitioned.  But to add to that, when I looked even closer I discovered perhaps why this had been the crystal chosen to be with him and why it was so powerful for journeying beyond.

It happens to be a Channeler Transmitter Quartz, or Dow or Trans-Channeler Quartz, as they are known with perfect 3-7-3 and 7-3-7 sides to its faces, front and back. You can read more about that here: Dow or Trans-Channeler Crystal. Divine balance and connection with Universal Truth being its essence.

The Mallard Duck feathers embody spiritual freedom, grace on water, self expression, emotional strength and protection, mystic and seer, combines land and water balance, integration, and manifestation, knowing what to do and how to do it, graceful self confidence, knowing, preparedness, letting go, speaking truth, intuition, gentle flow, the now, and being that they walk the Earth, swim in the waters (fresh and ocean), and roam the sky, they are links between Heaven and Earth, or this world and another, and also represent eternal life.

Blue Jay brings the energies of clarity (in this case double clarity/vision to express purity and truth of heart and soul with great clarity of thought in bringing these through to share), communication, presence, wise and balanced use of personal power, resourceful adaptability for ease, creative self-expression and assertion, sound and song, authenticity, and bringing higher thoughts into action.  Their crest that reaches into the heavens, directly links both Earth and Universal/Cosmic energies, bridging them for integration and active expression of divinity brought into embodiment.

So both bird spirits linking and bridging here and beyond, personal and collective, immediate and bigger picture.

 

Then we have my Lightning Rod, Sacred Spiral Wand.

This lovely wand, although more fine than the others, is a presence of power in motion. The wood is a rich and deeper brown, smooth and perfectly contorted to flash that energy through like lightning.

Again, the tiny Lemurian Quartz point that sits atop the end has the perfect shape to fit the groove at the end of the wand like no other crystal, but it, could do.

It is wrapped in silver wire, which also swaddles the three lovely grouse feathers flowing from its shaft and then spirals down further – the only wand with descending/ascending spiral like that of the personal power symbol embodied within the Sacred Spiral that the Grouse is connected with.

This is so because of the way a Grouse moves and dances in a spiral – an ancient symbol of birth and rebirth. Their medicine is reflective of a whirlpool or tornado spiral that moves one to center, which allows for vision and enlightenment.

The spiral movement of the silver wire also mirrors the movement of energy embodied in this wand.

I’m reminded of the Celtic Goddess Etain (pronounced Ay-deen) also known as the “Shining One” and is one of the White Ladies of the Fae for some reason. Etain helps us know that any challenge, even those that feel overbearing, can be overcome and we can always regain our shining light, while knowing our true beauty and authenticity, though superficial and illusory things will fade away. Her presence is a guiding golden light on the path of transformation, while showing us the wisdom way to balance, wholeness, and rebirth back to our own light.

There is a quality to this wand reminiscent of this message, but also combining the impactful transformation available to us all through change that can suddenly and surprisingly flash into our lives like lightning, but creates the ability to rise again more beautifully and authentically like the phoenix. This wand draws gentle, but immensely powerful energy to aid your focus so this journey becomes more natural like a spiral.

 

And last we have my Twin Seer, Bridge Weaver Wand – As Above, So Below.

This beautiful wood spirit is the longest of them all and has a lovely golden amber with darker brown vein and natural cracks. It’s like two wands in one with a bend at center whose curvature precisely and perfectly aligned flush with the gorgeous, rainbow infused Lemurian Quartz that sits there.

Above and Below this Lemurian are two turquoise stones all wrapped in gold wire that ends at two spirals.

The handle is fashioned with brown vegan leather intentfully woven with robin’s egg blue satin cord and gold wire.

And at top you’ll find a gorgeous self-healed Lemurian Quartz whose base is a cluster of gorgeous new growth crystals with pinky apricot coloring. It, too, sits perfect at the top and is held in place with gold wire that also cradles 10 Quartz points and 3 Goose feathers.

These 10 Quartz points act as an extra conduit between both main Lemurian Quartz points, as well as reflects like a mirror, deflects as protection, creates a bridge to journey from one experience, time, place, to another, and creates the ripples and surface of water its Goose friends gracefully glide upon.

Again, these 10 Quartz points perfectly fit and completed the top of the wand, as that area was naturally peeled away by Nature, leaving the perfect alcove for the crystals to embed themselves flush, as an extension of the wood and becoming one with it.

The Goose and its feathers embody loyalty, forging ahead with bravery and confidence, teamwork and comradery, protection, clear communication, determination, dedication, fellowship, fidelity, fertility, the balance of knowing when to lead or follow, compassionate keepers of the community and embody the sacred circle and sanctity of the cycles of life, astute navigation, discernment of life path and choices, teamwork, protection, and committed responsibility. Geese never leave one of their own behind for any reason. They will stay with the sick and injured until they are either well again, or to support them as they transition.

For some reason I am reminded of the energies of the Norse Goddess Frigga and Norse God Odin. Frigga’s sacred animal is the Goose.
