Portals of Experience Continue to Open

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

Life with Magickal Rabbits ~ Opening Portals to the New


rabbit key

I love this image, which a sweet friend of mine had sent me a few months ago. It is so reflective of my journey and life, the magickal realm I live in always, and also that theme of “following the White Rabbit” I’ve posted about. But more so, captures the “essence” of my life with these magickal beings and how they’ve supported my portal journeys into new realms of experience.

I’ve been thinking about the changes in my life and how nearly all of the biggest ones have taken place when bunnies have been a part of it.

My leaps mirroring their hops.

I’m at another juncture of shifts so it’s no wonder Astrid is here with me now.

I’ve been focusing on finishing off things to make clear way for the new, did my big 13 day cleanse (interestingly, but not surprisingly, I have not gained back all the old energy that needed shedding so that I move forward without the “weight” of the past), and have been keeping busy with a lot of activity right now (many friends visiting, nature outings, and events) while helping her to integrate and anchor in so that we would both be ready and aligned for the next part of the journey together – all perfectly aligned with the time she has needed.

In a few days I’ll be getting back to completing my book – yay! which I knew she would be helping with now that she’s feeling grounded here. 

Seems, once again, my bunnies keep aligning with major Cosmic shifts and portals, as we’ll be entering the 8-8 Lion’s Gate here shortly and the big August Eclipse Gateway. No surprise I’ll be completing the book during all of this…will be fun to see just how exactly it aligns.

Zephyr, whom you may remember as the bunny I was going to adopt, but couldn’t because of circumstances being better to support him where he is for now, had originally been, and will also continue, helping with the writing, as I work with bunnies telepathically, even if from afar.

Although I’ve sent him love and have continued working through the sadness of his not being physically here (another element integrating during all of this), he has been relatively quiet in his contentment with the bunny supporting him where he is…also awaiting my return to writing and all of us integrating and anchoring for the next leg of our work together. He has also been an anchor at the rabbit rescue – SaveABunny – for much to come.

I’m so grateful to have my team together and excited to finish the very end of my book – not much left to go!

I was told to wait on the very last part because of this integrating time needed with Astrid and the shifts with everything so that we could work on it harmoniously together.

This book has been writing itself and so it has not been a daily hunkering down to complete it, as might be the process for some writers, but rather a journey of flowing with the energies and only working on it when the windows/portals of opportunity and alignment gave the green light.

I am listening and aligning, while also staying on top of doorways opening and closing and it’s been incredible to witness the life shifts in all ways that have been weaving along with it all and shifting so much with every part of it. There is a timing and unfolding needing to both be taken action on, but also co-creating in natural harmony with.

My rabbit friends – or rather my kindred spirits, comrades, and Cosmic family in rabbit bodies – have known just what elements here on this planet would support me in the greatest and highest of ways. Their presence has helped me to continue to integrate my Earth and Star self and it has been through the love we share and the DNA-awakening they invoke, that has kept me on track, helped me remember, infused the necessary ingredients of alchemy needed, and literally have helped me remain here to complete this next spiraling phase.

Life is magickal with rabbits for sure and I’m beyond grateful to have rabbit friends and co-creators!

Libra Full Moon & Sedona Magick


Approaching Full Moon over Courthouse Rock

 

Balance and harmony are key energies for this Pink Full Moon in Libra on the 11th and how we can channel this in a way that tempers both our individual needs with collective integration for a higher good as One. I’m seeing new opportunities being presented to us all if we keep our hearts open and release attachment to how things “have” to be. Every moment can open us to wider perspectives and potentials with some willingness to discern and feel to the core of things. A great time to readjust our energy output to that which supports optimal and empowering well-being.

How can you support yourself into your authenticity without judging others for what they are revealing of themselves as their own process at the same time?

The more we remove our own costumes we’ve been accustomed to hiding behind, we understand dynamics at work without expectations from others or belittling demands on ourselves.

A lot of old pains and shadow aspects are continuing to rise to the surface in order for us to realize our potential to shift perspective and open our hearts to a new way of experiencing things that can transmute it all and manifest our intentions nonetheless.

So yes, there’s still a lot of intensity around, but there’s a major contrast of incredible things happening for people alongside a lot of challenging things people are also experiencing. Retrogrades, like we’re experiencing, are opportunities to reassess and realign ourselves.

Everything is rapidly transforming and it can sometimes be hard to keep up with the constant change, but also very liberating if you can find a way to embrace greater fluidity.

Libra is an air element and that brings to us opportunity to expand our minds and not get hung up on over-obsessing and excessive analysis, but rather partnering our minds with hearts to gain new perspective and expansive clarity that may spark new ideas and innovative visions for our journeys.

As you know, we’ve were in Sedona the last several days since Wednesday, which has been hugely expansive, once again, for us. And more than I thought, actually, has unfolded upon returning and allowing the energy to settle in.

We have a lot that opened and shifted (even just today) and received clarity on things since being home that once again proved how fluidity and staying open to greater possibilities, allows that to happen.

View from our home away from home while visiting Sedona

 

Interestingly, upon returning home yesterday we discovered that the unit below and left to us had a sewer issue that caused some minor flooding in their place and the plumber was here working on things, that got fixed today.

The pipes are connected to all units and unfortunately their unit gets the problems because they are lower and have the lowest sitting shower. The issue that is normal around these parts is that tree roots find their way into the pipes, seeking out water sources, and that can create blockage issues. Something to maintain once a year.

Bell Rock

 

All of that seeming symbolic with rooting going on in our lives and finding ways to flow with nature.

Anyway, since the 4 units are connected, we all had to stop using water until the plumber returned to fix it all this morning, and that felt reflective of this pause in percolation taking place with our feelings about things and examining what is at the heart of it all.

Also reflective of our opening to this expansive, freeing and light new perspective, which shifted the course of things and even aligned us greater with our frequencies, the back-up was fixed, and our fluidity of embrace and movement with the energies showed us an even better way – all freeing everything up at once in connection to each other.

I also anchored even more deeply with the journey most heart-resonant for myself as well and made a big decision this morning.

From Broken Arrow Trail

 

Being in Sedona was very balancing and transformative, as it always is and my relationship to her energies have shifted since I first lived there back in 1996 from intensely supportive in stripping away onion layers, to flowingly supportive, light, yet powerfully gentle.

I’ve returned many times since I lived there, with a large break between the next time I returned, but then was back a couple of times in a row for some classes and hosting a booth at the Raw Spirit Festival, breaking again until I got my dragon tattoo there, and then returning the last 3 years in a row at the same time each year – Spring. Each journey being hugely mirroring and opening for my life.

This trip was very productive and had very purposeful and meaningful reasons for us being there at this time, creating activations and anchoring on several levels – too much to delve into detail here, as I’m also pressed on time right now.

But one of which I’ll mention a bit since it was a moving experience for many that connected to my Crystal Skull, includes the transferring of guardianship of my beloved and powerful Raja Seraphina to her new and amazing guardian, who also is a dear friend. I am so grateful to Dawn for opening to this huge shift that is igniting an incredible journey of her life’s work. It is amazing to see how R.S. has energetically shifted since being with Dawn and I’m so touched in seeing the pampering and dedicated love and honor Dawn is sharing with her. A match made in the Cosmos. I’m excited for their work ahead, which will be powerful for the collective. And grateful for yet another bridge created between us with R.S. The timing couldn’t have been more perfect with the upcoming Full Moon either. I hear she’ll be receiving a Moon bath and so much more!

We had a very full several days in Sedona with all that we had scheduled and going on there, including a last minute connection with another sweet soul, her hubby, and little Faery daughter that was full circle since we first met in person in Sedona back in 2011 (fun to see how much has changed for us since then), but everything aligned perfectly and we still managed to enjoy awesome food and get in some great hiking – about 20 miles in the available time slots we had over 3 of the days taking us to Boynton Canyon, Broken Arrow (behind Chapel Rock and up to Chicken Rock), trails in Red Rock State Park along Oak Creek, Bell and Courthouse Rock loop, as well as Baldwin Trail behind Cathedral Rock.

The high desert right now is lovely with flowers in bloom too. Perfect reflections all around, energy, and balance.

I loved that we were there in the wake of the Full Moon approaching too, which was very cool for our labyrinth and medicine wheel walk we did the night before leaving. That was the second labyrinth walk, as we also walked it with Dawn on the day we met.

All in all, a beautiful journey through another portal that has infused inspiration, more clarity, and ignited another propulsion of activation. Continuous blessings to constantly be grateful for.

And even when twists and turns, ebbs and flows take place…it just isn’t possible to be upset or stressed about it, because it always flows into something even better than imagined.

And while I know that there is a lot going on out there that holds a different energy, I know my part is to hold my own and continue seeing everything in its wholeness as an integral thread to the entire Cosmic tapestry weaving itself into being.

I may have some exciting news to share soon. Until then, wishing everyone a balancing, clearing, and supportive Full Moon.

Cosmic Love

The heart is the cosmic gateway and seat of your unique soul self to all awareness and well-being of a multi-dimensional starhuman. It is the doorway to all intelligent knowing, thinking, and feeling when it is open, conscious, and loving. This allows for expansion of the human being.

11/11 Shifts Equal Crystal Offerings & New Beginnings


Not sure about the rest of you, but today’s 11/11 portal has proven to be powerful for some completions, shifts, and activations of new, not to mention tons of synchronicities. This revealed clear messages, which included that I was to release more crystals to new keepers, finalized complete organization of our new place and the preparation of the Magick Bus for selling and storing (will post info soon for anyone who may be interested), clarified some choices I needed to make, and put into motion a transaction for the beginning of the next part of the vision for our life and ventures.

All in time before my friend comes to visit us tomorrow, which synchronously got postponed from today, and with some cool alignments that magickally synched up without any orchestration on my part to bring it together on the right day and specific time even.

I saw the 11:11, 12:12, 1:11 and 2:22 portals today so far, and the last one being when the transaction was put forth. I then had my 2:26 birthday show up as well.

AND….just now as I finished writing this, 3:33 showed up.  LOL!

Fun all around to observe for sure!

But one of the things I mentioned above about crystals moving on was a surprise, although fully welcome.

A few months ago I had a dream about a very specific, cosmic crystal that was being given to me. I had yet to discern if it was an ethereal crystal, was connected to one somewhat similar to it that I already had, or was in fact one that would be coming to me in the near future.

I discerned that it wasn’t the one I had and today I received the message that either it would come to me in tangible form or I’d be able to work with the ethereal one once I released most all of my remaining crystals I had, except for just a few key pieces.

And hence, I embraced that I would be letting go of my crystals to new keepers – some of which are raw, natural ones found along my journeys far and wide, and others simply special ones that had remained with me when most all others had moved on already.

They are all on the smaller size – hand held that is for ease of travel and healing work – yet potent. I’m still discerning how I will offer them.

I’ve been getting that I may offer them in groups of crystals, rather than each individually, and within each group would be one or a few free raw crystals from my findings along with them. I don’t know that I’ll be photographing everything and writing long descriptions like I usually do, as I haven’t the time to do that really.

So I may just offer them by sharing them within a group specifically named in reflection of their energy, type of crystals included, and general energies, and if someone feels called they’ll know it’s for them.

I’m more about alignment these days.

I always offer my crystals “at price” purchased, so they are equal exchanges, plus shipping and handling.

Synchronously, not long after I got this message on what I was to do with my crystals, I also received an email from someone looking for a specific crystal to purchase of which will actually be in the offering.

Love those reiterations.

Anyway, all that to say that today has been pretty powerful and next week feels to be so too, as Monday’s Full Supermoon will mark my fully immersing into my writing again and the new on ALL levels. It may even be when we hear news on what was put into action today, and more.

If you are interested in any crystals or specific energies of crystals from me, you can comment on this post and I’ll keep you in mind first when putting things together. Otherwise, look out for a short post on crystal offerings soon.

Until then, wishing you a magickal rest of the day and weekend, as we near our biggest Supermoon since 1948!

Creative potential is abundant for what you desire manifesting personally and collectively, in direct reflection of your self worth embraced.

Your Heart Is A Portal

Secret Garden of You


Mari Sacred Tattoo Design

Sacred Tattoo Design – this is quite a large, yet delicate piece that will be gracing the upper top of back like a lace mantilla woven of the fruits and blossoms of the Earth and Tree of Life, with Blue Jay flowing into lower portion of neck over throat chakra, and the rest over higher heart and heart chakras, extending across top of shoulder blades and then the Bearded Dragon Lizards will come up over shoulder area framing just the upper portion in front where a Shaman’s Necklace tattoo sits that I co-created with my client there. Enchanting Snail and Tree Frog join the celebration of renewing activation.

 
 
 

I had some inspired thoughts to share today in continued theme of things I’ve been guided to express and realized that one of the latest sacred tattoo designs I created embodied the inspiration of the energy behind these messages – symbolically that is.

So, while I’m not sharing individual symbolism on the designs anymore, due to lack of time to expound on all of that, perhaps viewing this design while reading today’s share will activate something for you, as these designs are created as portals of embodiment and activation to energetically support the person wearing them and the people experiencing/seeing them.

While personal and custom-created for the individual who will wear them, they always carry significant collective symbolism as well, since we are all connected and going though similar, but relative journeys.

I’m calling the above design “Secret Garden of You” and let me just say there is more than meets the eye in this powerful personal gateway we’ve co-created, equipped with its own guardians/sentinels and several enchanted beings from the magickal realm speaking their medicine, not to mention a lot of interwoven and layered symbolism.

It was a piece that challenged both my client and I, especially so in execution to work with the footprint desired for it to weave into, but also in energetic translation, having only a few guidelines. It was in part inspired by the seven days of the morning reading for Lughnasadh Celtic Devotional by Caitlin Mathews shared with me by her in combination to tuning in to the energy behind her words, as she shared what was desired to be created for this next leg of her journey. An exciting and beautiful new birthing indeed!

But on to today’s messages, which are a compilation of short reminders weaving a tapestry for empowered, authentic living – much like the tapestry of symbolism this and all other sacred tattoos I’ve created, do.

They remind us of the sacredness within ourselves and the wisdom and truth we each have available to access at any given moment.

It’s important to make a commitment to yourself, which means listening to your feelings every moment and acting on what’s authentic and right for you presently – be your truth in all its splendor. Others will thank you for it even if they don’t say so, but more so, you’ll be astounded by how life becomes more enriching when you don’t worry about being vulnerable and what others think.

You’re NOT responsible for anyone else’s happiness. Each person must choose their own story. Only they, like you, can choose how to feel in any given moment.

We each have the ability to write a new story whenever we realize that power to do so.

Remember that if you want something from others, give it to yourself first and you’ll get it back in the way that is for the highest good without dictating how that needs to be or look.

Face fear with gentle love and curiosity in order to transmute it…look at it, feel the truth of it, retrieve the pieces of your power in it, and watch it dissolve and transform into your gift.

You are not at the mercy of anything, as you do have the ability to choose how to respond and feel, what perspective to embrace about it you desire, as well as what actions you want to take, even if you’re in a situation that seems like one karmically dealt or a bigger-picture collective experience. You can make lemonade from lemons. 😉

You can always look inside of you to ask for, find, and receive the answers. You need to be open and willing, as well as supportive of self-trust as to what subtle nudges speak to you, and open to giving yourself permission to experience more.

As you focus on the things that are good about yourself – your gifts, your strengths, your special qualities – you empower and support yourself to embody it more in a bigger way.

Be aware of how you speak to yourself and others and the image you are creating about yourself when you do. Is it consistent with the person you know yourself to be and are wanting to be more of?

Everything you’ve experienced and the challenges you’ve gone through is, and has been, an attempt by your soul to call in and experience more light in your life…truly it’s not about someone having it in for you. It’s your ingenious soul way of evolving and experiencing the totality of Source through you.

You put yourself in situations that will challenge you to be more loving and compassionate…to go deeper into those unconditionally.

Unconditional love is learning to embody and be that source of love rather than waiting for others to do so and is not subject to what others are doing or not doing.

Fear and triggers are places that our love hasn’t yet been discovered. So, in each moment you can choose to either embrace more fear and pain, or embrace more love. Going deeper into the allowance of feeling those things will create their ability to flow through you, bringing wisdom along that current of embrace.

Your definitions of yourself influence your behavior and experiences. If you don’t like the definition you’ve been experiencing of yourself, start creating a new one and envision it as much in depth as you can possibly go. Write or reflect on an expansive vision of you and continue to expand upon that from a higher, more loving, deeper perspective. The higher and deeper you can go with how you see yourself, the more accurately in fact you ARE REALLY seeing who you are at the heart and soul of things.

You have the ability to know your truth. Honoring that is the greatest gift you can give to yourself and others. It supports and energetically creates a frequency that mirrors what is possible, but also invites opportunity to do the same.

There is a whole secret garden of you, waiting for you to remember, subtly listen to, trust, actively engage, transmute, and support, embrace and sing to the world, and gently and patiently love into harmonious balance, fulfillment, and fruitful, ecstatic abundance.

Some Personal Reflections on Expanding Realities & a Few Inspirational Words for Transformation


crane (2)

Crane at Crystal Cove State Park Beach

I’ve increasingly been experiencing profound shifts on a consistent basis. Something small I see or hear will trigger a powerfully transformative reflection and this will create a deeper expansion, as a result.

I’ve been in a space in the last few months where I am many times at a loss for words to explain what I’m experiencing, as it is so outside of the reality we have become accustomed to. It is a space where absolutely everything just IS, and nothing has fault, including even the perceived worst things you can imagine. (Interestingly, it is also during this same extent of time that I see an extraordinary amount of hawks on sometimes a daily basis, and several within a day).

It’s a breadth of “throughness-experience” that is like an alchemical kaleidoscope where once you go through one full image, it is transforming into the next and the next, yet always made up of the same ingredients, ever-transforming.

I feel life so much to be like this kaleidoscope-tube that contains mirrors of colored pieces, whose reflections produce changing patterns that are visible through an eyehole/portal when the tube is rotated – much like the spiraling effect of life where you meet the same points, perspectively different, in transformative ways.

It’s a portal experience of a completely different and revolving reality where I’m observing as an expanded aspect of myself, from “not self” – experiencing experience from Source/The Great Central Sun.

I don’t know why I felt to share this right now, but for some reason, the inspirational quotes I DID want to share today, guided me to do so. I am exponentially grateful for what it IS that has become my reality. Perhaps many of you are also experiencing similar.

So, here are a couple of quotes with supportive inspiration for your day, which I HAD been originally guided to share with you. I posted them on Facebook, but I know not everyone is on there, so I’ll sometimes expound upon those posts for anyone here who follows along with my blog:

Willing to experience aloneness,
I discover connection everywhere;
Turning to face my fear,
I meet the warrior who lives within;
Opening to my loss,
I am given unimaginable gifts;
Surrendering into emptiness,
I find fullness without end.

Each condition I flee from pursues me.
Each condition I welcome transforms me
And becomes itself transformed…

~Jennifer Welwood

 

When we come close to those things that break us down, we touch those things that also break us open. And in that breaking open, we uncover our true nature.

~Wayne Muller
