Can you feel the pull?
We are being invited to de-program.. so as to re-program ourselves. Some of what we experience is out of this world amazing and enlightening (!) and some of it is (for lack of a better phrasing) all the gunk under the rug from the past. At least everything that need to be seen and removed from all-of-our-this-lifetime.
Are you ready? I AM!
What I am 100% clear about and sure of is that all of the personal work and transformation we are each individually and collectively moving through IS THE WORK. As in, this is the exact stuff our soul has signed on for and been waiting for. THIS (not glorious, possibly frustrating moment) IS IT!
This post might bring up a it of agitation.. THIS IS IT?! If that feels like you I offer that you're missing the point. The "it", the thing we think we want and need is moving and shifting.. So, yes, it may feel that your world is shifting. We in being invited o trust that ultimately all that is happening is for the better; is for the good of ourselves and the whole.
The question might entertain our minds with is WHY. Why? Why is all this happening?
We're on the trajectory of enlightenment.. and we can all identify that there's tons of stuff to be clarified in our world. So here we are, Awakening. It can feel a lot. It can feel like we're awakening into the muck. But hey, seeing the muck pretty much assures you that you now know its there. The beauty of the awakening is that you can now address it.
That is a long-winded introduction to Goddess Maia or Maya. As everything I've just written has already been written before, in different ways. That we live in a world of illusion/delusion... and on the flip side transformation and immense possibility.
I mention in the broadcast that this Goddess in Hindu thought can been seen in a negative way: Maya is seen as something essentially negative: a synonym for the illusion of material existence and the ignorance (avidya) that makes it possible.
This is only one side of the same coin, however, and in this broadcast we are invited to see and to understand that this Goddess is point us to the immense power of our own consciousness, of our own creative life force.
In Greek myth, Maia is viewed as the goddess of Spring and the coming of new life. Of course these two views are the positive and negative aspects of the same Reality.
While Maya is associated with avidya, non-wisdom, the Greek goddess Maia is the mother of Hermes, the god of wisdom, and in Buddhism, Maya is the mother of the Buddha, the incarnation of wisdom.
Welcome to the 11 11 portal for 2020. While this energetic alignment happens every year on 11 11, this year is extra special and quite potent as we have the 2020 energies all around us, supporting us towards ascension and transformation.
As I mention in the broadcast, 11 11 asks the question: Do you believe in the things you cannot see? This is because we are living in powerful, transformative and creative times.
I discuss the fundamental meaning of 11 11 in terms of a binary universe in the broadcast. I also wanted to add a few interesting links from quantum physics, in case you want to sense the convergence of science and spirituality that is on the way!
In the broadcast, we meet two Ascended Masters: St. Germain and Serapis Bey. While there are a variety of interpretations as to what it means to be an "Ascended Master", in my understanding of it's most simple and broad application, Ascended Master can be applied to those whom we as humans consider enlightened or ascended beings.
Another word that I find interesting and potentially synonymous to use is "Avatar". Avatar's transcend individual consciousness and show us that there are thought forms and energetic ways of being and knowing that exist beyond our 3D physical world, yet are also inexplicably tied to and oven into the threads of our reality.
St. Germain is an Ascended Master, Avatar and enlightened being whom I've mentioned before. There is much written about him, I will include some links in this post for you to review and sense what feels true for you. I can share here that I have come to interact with this energy as the Violet Flame.
St. Germain has long been know to be associated with and be the keeper of the Violet Flame, among other things. So as we interact with him for the purposes of the 11 11 portal, to keep things simple you can just consider him to be an Avatar or Ascended Master.. someone akin to a buddha or saint.. but also someone who is very much here and available to humanity
Links about St. Germain:
Serapis Bey is considered by many an Ascended Master. He is similar to St. Germain in that he also has been thought and understood to be and enlightened being who is here to assist humanity during this time of transition and transformation. He oversees the Ascension Temple at Luxor in Egypt. Serapis Bey is the beloved avatar who supports us in the initiations for the ascension, hence his presence in our 11 11 portal meditation!
It is thought that Serapis Bey was incarnated as a high priest in one of the "Temples of the Sacred Fire" on Atlantis who migrated to Egypt at the time of the destruction of Atlantis. It is also believed that he was incarnated as the Egyptian Pharaoh Amenhotep III (who constructed the Temple of Luxor) and also as Leonidas, the King of Sparta, who was killed in 480 BC defending the pass of Thermopylae against the invasion of Greece by Emperor Xerxes I of Persia. According to the teachings of Agni Yoga, Serapis Bey was in past lives the Roman King Numa Pompilius, the philosophers Confucius, Plato and Lucius Anneus Seneca.
Much is happening on and around October 31st this year, 2020. As we lily already sense, this year has been one preparing us for deep and profound transformation on a personal and cultural level. It is fitting then that the day traditionally celebrated at Samhain, Halloween, Day of the Dead, and All Soul's Day also happens to fall on a Super Blue Moon. Furthermore, during this time we have Goddess and Asteroid Juno coming into her own in Scorpion, in perfect sync with all of this transformational energy.
I share more about Samhain and Juno in the broadcast above, as well as in the blog post below. Enjoy!
Samhain is both a festival of the Dead as well as a celebration of Rebirth. Meaning "Summer's End" and pronounced saah-win or saa-ween, Samhain is a celebration of the end of the harvest and the start of the coldest half of the year. For many practitioners, myself included, Samhain also is the beginning of the spiritual new year.
Originating in ancient Europe as a Celtic Fire festival, Samhain is now celebrated worldwide. In the northern hemisphere, many Nature Worshipers celebrate Samhain from sundown on October 31 through November 1.
With the growth and spread of Christianity as the dominant religion throughout Europe, Samhain time took on Christian names and guises. All Saints' Day or All Hallows on November 1 commemorated Christian saints and martyrs. All Souls' Day on November 2 was a remembrance for all souls of the dead. With the coming of Christian Spaniards to Mexico, the indigenous customs of honoring the dead at this time of year mixed with Roman Catholicism and gave birth to the Day of the Dead, Dia de los Muertos, in early November. Samhain shares the ancient spiritual practice of remembering and paying respects to the Dead with these related religious holidays of Christianity.
Halloween, which is celebrated on October 31 is an abbreviation for All Hallow's Eve. Although occurring at the same time of year and having roots in end-of-harvest celebrations of the ancient past, Halloween and Samhain are not the same, but two separate holidays that can differ quite a lot in their focus and practice. In contemporary America and elsewhere, Halloween is a secular folk holiday. Like its cousin, Thanksgiving, it is widely and publicly celebrated in homes, schools, and communities, large and small, by people of many paths, ethnic heritages, and worldviews. Furthermore, Halloween has evolved to be both a family-oriented children's holiday as well as an occasion for those of all ages to creatively express themselves and engage in play in the realm of make-believe and fantasy through costumes, trick-or-treating, play-acting and engaging in make-believe.
Juno was one of the oldest Roman deities, the three original Gods, Jupiter, Juno and Minerva. She is associated with Hera in the Greek myths but belief in Juno pre-existed Hera and they are not the same. Juno had various names, Juno Regina (Queen), Juno Sospita (protector of confinement, childbirth), Juno Lucina (Light), Juno Moneta (Moon).
She was said to be both the wife and sister of Jupiter, King of the Gods (note in my podcast I mistakenly said Saturn.. I meant to say Jupiter!), and mother of Mars, whose father was not Jupiter but rather a flower — though many stories now say Jupiter. How interesting that the symbol for Juno looks like a flower.
Juno is the protector of and the women her power has been long sidelined and underestimated as have all female deities during the Age of Pisces which roughly relates to the Age of Christianity. As we leave that Astrological Age and move into the Age of Aquarius all these long lost deities are gaining prominence again, slowly.
Just like Hera, Juno's sacred animal was the peacock. Below is an except from Aesop's Fables about "Juno and the Peacock"
The peacock came to see Juno, because he could not accept with equanimity the fact that the goddess had not given him the song of the nightingale. The peacock complained that the nightingale's song was wondrously beautiful to every ear, while he was laughed at by everyone as soon as he made the slightest sound. Juno then consoled the peacock and said, 'You are superior in beauty and superior in size; there is an emerald splendour that shines about your neck, and your tail is a fan filled with jewels and painted feathers.' The peacock protested, 'What is the point of this silent beauty, if I am defeated by the sound of my own voice?' 'Your lot in life has been assigned by the decision of the Fates,' said Juno. 'You have been allotted beauty; the eagle, strength; the nightingale, harmony; the raven has been assigned prophetic signs, while unfavourable omens are assigned to the crow; and so each is content with his own particular gift.'
Do not strive for something that was not given to you, lest your disappointed expectations become mired in discontent.
It is interesting here as we vibrate higher and ascend up out of heavier and darker times to look at the potential powerful lesson of "Being Here Now".. in whatever our "Here and Now" look like. This might be a potent part of the medicine and healing that Juno is offering us now through December 2020.
On October 20th we have a portal opening. As I mention in the broadcast, a portal is simply an english world for "energies coming though and available for us".
Essentially, we have this time from 10/20 through 12/21 to prepare ourselves. To continue to choose light and vibrate about our bright future BEASUE WE CAN.
This is not a disempowered statement, this is a personally sovereign and empowered statement.
At it's heart it states "I understand that I am responsible for everything about my life, I consciously choose to create. I am a conscious creator."
I will offer another in depth broadcast about 12.21. Suffice to say that new and bright energies are arriving en-masse and at the perfect time. As with everything on our planet, we are simultaneously co-creators; Infusing and seeding light as well as reciting information as to what this lifetime is about.
I mentioned the nonprofit I founded just over a year ago. I am currently living/moving up to the property and developing/seeding it by hand. Looking forward to having options for those who fe called to visit and/or contribute your energy!
Welcome to transformation on a multidimensional level!
We have the Draconoid Meteor Shower happening tonight and for the next several days.
Meteor showers are named for the constellation from which they come from. This meteor shower comes from the constellation Draco. Draco is the Latin word for serpent or dragon.
Hence the constellation Draco is known as the dragon constellation.
I imagine meteors as 3d pieces of matter sent out energetically to carry energy and information from their source.. and that they arrive to us here on earth with new energies. Thus, with this meteor shower, we have 3d pieces of matter coming to us from the Draco/dragon constellation. Draco is, in current understanding, where the dragon energies have gone into 4 and 5d.
But with this meteor shower they are re-emerging. As in, the mythological archetypes of dragon energy (in sync with elemental energy) are feeling the same call that we humans are feeling. It's time. It's time for humanity to remember how to co-create with the elemental kingdom, dragons included.
At this juncture on our planet, there are many awakened and awakening souls. We know at a very deep level that our earth is in need of transformation, that we are in need of transformation. The elemental kingdom is re-emerging to help humanity co-create the new earth.
This is a very exciting time to be alive, as we have the potential to effect great change. To have a significant and positive impact on our world.
As I write today we have Saturn stationing direct, after a lengthly period in retrograde. For most of us in 2020, I'm sensing that Saturn, the planet of karma, discipline and limitations, is teaching patience.
Patience is one of the two words that came through during this broadcast. The energies of Aries full moon likely have us ready for action and almost feeling like that things have already been taking too long!
Grateful, the antidote for feeling time pressure is here :)
This Full Moon in Aries (Sun in Libra), together with the energies of Mars and Saturn (as discussed in the podcast) provide us with the perfect alignment remember Goddess Astarte.
Who is Goddess Astarte?
Astarte was a goddess honored in the Eastern Mediterranean area, before being renamed by the Greeks. Variants of the name “Astarte” can be found in the Phoenician, Hebrew, Egyptian and Etruscan languages.
A deity of fertility and sexuality, Astarte eventually evolved into the Greek Aphrodite thanks to her role as a goddess of sexual love. Interestingly, in her earlier forms, she also appears as a warrior goddess, and eventually was celebrated as Artemis.
The image to the right is a carving with rubys of Astarte in the Louvre, you can see her cow horns or lunar disc at her crown. Her hips are round to signal she is a fertility goddess. The stones placed in her eyes and at her navel (I believe) signal her power of seeing and knowing together with creating and birthing things into the physical plane.
Astarte was worshipped by Canaanites, Egyptians, Hebrews, Philistines, and Phoenicians, but who is she? In the tradition of West Semitic spirits Astarte means “the womb,” “the conceiving womb,” or “full womb” and is a title for the goddess Anat, but it may also be a title for other goddesses associated with fertility.
Astarte was connected with fertility, sexuality, and war/(which inner current times signals transformation, as I mention in the broadcast). Her symbols were the lion, the horse, the sphinx, the dove, and a star within a circle indicating the planet Venus. Pictorial representations often show her naked, as seen left
Astarte first appears in Ancient Egypt beginning in the Eighteenth dynasty of Egypt along with other deities who were worshipped by northwest Semitic people. She was worshipped especially in her aspect of a warrior goddess, often paired with the goddess Anat.
Welcome to Libra Season, traditionally a calling in to balance and harmony; today we can sense this is needed more poignantly than ever.
So what to do? First unpack our cultural habit of needing to "do" something in order to make it better or resolve it.
We need to Be.
We are invited right now to remember simply how to Be... and to Choose to Be Balanced.
We get to remember that we are conscious vibrational beings, always every moment of every day sending out signals of what we pay attention to and what we want create. We have likely been conditioned away from this way of be-ing and knowing. So it feels a little bit like we are inhabiting a foreign land, at least at first.
This is the "new country", this has the potential to be our new reality, for those of us who feel called toward a similar vibrational path, at least. It is bit of a fork in the road, being careened around by the media and trying to figure out what is actually "true" versus simply choosing to look within. Within is where we ultimately find everything we need and all offer answers. We are simply, right now, being invited to come home to our own internal knowing.
Knowing of what?
That we are at our core vibrational energetic beings. That we are powerful. That we create our reality. That we can and do create even moment of every day.
I mention in the podcast the link between Libra and Egyptian Goddess Ma’at. There's much to be share about Ma’at, I will keep it brief here.
Ma'at is the goddess of truth, justice, divine order, cosmic order and balance. She is depicted with wings of a vulture, her special animal, and the feather of truth in her headdress.
She also carries an ankh, the key of life, and sometimes a scepter. Ma'at can be traced as far back as the Old Kingdom. She is the daughter of Ra, sometimes even referred to as the "eye of Ra." Her equivalent and husband is Thoth, and her opposite is her brother Set. The Goddess Ma'at was most cherished by the rulers of ancient Egypt, and most of them were referred to as "Beloved of Ma'at." Pharaohs would carry an effigy of Ma'at seated as a sign that he represented her regime.
When a person died, their soul was lead by Thoth, god of wisdom, into the Hall of Double Justice, to the presence of Osiris, Lord of the Dead, along with 42 Assessors, or Judges of Ma'at. The heart, which is a person's essence, would be weighed in the Scales of Justice against Ma'at's feather from her headdress. If the person had led a good life the heart would balance against the feather. If the person had committed one or more crimes against the divine rules, then it would weigh heavier and would be eaten by the goddess Ammut, thereby to die the eternal death. Those that balanced would be led by Ma'at to Osiris, and be permitted to join with the celestial goddesses and gods for all eternity. The Declaration of Innocence and the 42 rules, are written in the Book of the Dead. Ma'at ruled over all 3 worlds; even the gods had to obey her rulings.
September 2020 brings with it the invitation of transformation. September the number 9. In numerology the number 9 represents completion, in a cyclical sense; it's about the ending of one cycle and the potential it creates for another cycle to begin. The 9 in Numerology acts as an usher in this process of transition or transformation.
This September also ring with it the massage of larger cycles of completion which have been stirred up in 2020. We have a new moon on the 17th which is the first of three super new moons in a row, followed by a total solar eclipse on December 14 (solar eclipses always happen on new moons). So we're getting the invitation right now with this first super new moon to truly sense what it is that we want to create inner lives and our world.
Transformation is a bit of a double edged sword, we have to let go of something old in order to make space for the new. We must go through some kind of death process in order to be reborn. We are living in the times of transformation, in many ways it is easy to feel the death of old, the shifting of structures, and the need for rebirth. To help us in the process we have Lilith. Lilith is often known as "Black Moon Lilith".
In the words of Dr Bairavee:
"Black Moon Lilith is the lunar (mean) apogee. It at the furthest possible point the Moon could be from the Earth, assuming a regular elliptical orbit.
If we consider the planets at play, we see a point of hypothetical presence on the same plane as a line drawn through the center of the Earth and the Moon, if it was directly behind the Earth. The Moon itself has no light save for what it reflects from the Sun or what is refracted from the Earth’s own atmosphere. It gives no light to the Black Moon."
In my mind Lilith has always represented the aspects of the unknown beyond our 3d world, the darkness that is present encompassing empty space that gives birth to all things new and light. Lilith exists beyond our physical world, and beyond the light that we can see with our physical eyes. In the broadcast I discuss how she has potentially been misrepresented in the past and held in a negative and fearful light.
I share how the stories of her existence may point to her true power, which is ultimately our own true power. In my experience one of Lilith's most powerful messages is that she is us and we are her. Below I share two images that show Lilth. In the image on left she is the female linked to the serpent (kundalini) power in the Garden of Eden. In the image on right she is the unseen feminine energy experienced in the darkness of night coming from beyond the moon.
Right in sync with the intuitive, inward turning, sensitive energy of the Pisces Full Moon we have the reminder of the prophecy of the Elders of Uluru.
First, who are the Elders of Uluru?
To answer this question it is helpful to look at the larger landscape of Aboriginal Australia. The Aboriginal people have been living on and cultivating the lands of what we in the modern world know as Australia since the beginning.
They were here for centuries before European invasion in the 1800s. Across the country there were more than 500 Indigenous nations. Out of the 500 nations estimated to have lived here, there was over 260 distinct language groups and 800 dialects.
In the Uluru region, the local tribe are named the Anangu people. Dating back more than 60,000 years, the Anangu culture has always been a vital part of Central Australian life. Anangu Tjukurpa teach that the landscape was formed as their ancestral beings moved across the barren land.
I discuss in the broadcast about their understanding that Uluru was formed by ancestral beings during "the Dreaming." I also speak of the Prophecy, that relates very much to the times we live in today.
Many believe that the time is coming on December 21 2020 (Winter Solstice for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere & Summer Solstice for the Aboriginal Elders and people in the Southern Hemisphere) for us to send our heart light and love to Uluru. The Prophecy tells us that it is a critical time. The Prophecy states that 200,000 conscious, bright, shining and awake human beings are needed to send their heart light and love to this place on our planet at that time.
Uluru is known by many as one of a handful for sacred and powerful sites on our Earth. Among others are Glastonbury, Mt. Shasta, the Great Pyramid at Giza, and Maui Hawaii. Uluru is often referred to in modern times as the Solar Plexus chakra of our Earth. Regardless of all of this the Anangu people understand that only humans have the capacity needed to send light and love to this sacred place.
As this podcast has always worked across time and space, I got the nudge for us to start to gather together for this purpose during this broadcast. The vision is that by the time December 21st 2020 comes to pass, we will have gathered in numbers beyond 200,000. I hope that you can join us!
Finally! My next online course begins September 9th 2020. It is a course in divination of all kinds, titled "Oracle You". You can find more information and the full curriculum here and by clicking the image below. I hope that you can join me on the journey.
We have strong Mars energies present at the end of August, and this will likely continue through the end of 2020. On August 24, we have the first energetic peak of Mars square Saturn, and we will see two more peaks on September 29th and January 12th.
We can also feel the momentum of Mars Retrograde coming on as the planet is slowing towards coming to a stop. Mars retrograde actually happens on September 9th through November 12th, but we will feel its effects long before and after. I also note in the broadcast the significance of the numbers 9/9 (September 9th) as a theme of completion, resolution, & leadership for transformation.
Finally and powerfully I discuss how the messages and lessons of Mars (which include energetic integrity as well as being aware of how we use our energy) invite us to reconnect to our ancestors and to one of the most ancient yet still surviving cultures on our planet: the Dogon Tribe of Africa. The Dogon are potentially one of the only people who have mangled to stay separate from the "revolution of progress" that is our modern society. As such they hold keys and wisdom for us as we traverse these times of transformation. I discuss the Dogon's knowledge of Sirius in the board cast, but also want to share a but more about their understanding of the creation of humanity. You will find it below.
An old Dogon legend tells of when the God of the universe, Amma, sent the Nommo to earth. This was a half-man, half-amphibian creature which landed in a place northeast of Bandiagara, in the Mopti region; the Nommo was red, but when it touched the ground it became white.
To the right you will see "Mali", a Dogon container. This container shows the "Ark of the world", in which Nommo, the mythical progenitor of humanity, is supposed to have come down from the sky. (source)
The name Nommo derives from a Dogon word that translates as “to do well”; much more often, however, this is remembered as “The Master of Water” (perhaps a reference to the fact that the Nommo could not survive out of water).
From oral tradition, the Dogon confirmed their affiliation with extraterrestrial bodies which visited earth some years ago. According to them, amphibious beings (or mermaids and mermen) from the Sirius system known as Nommos, visited earth. The Nommos lived on a planet that rotated around other stars in the Sirius system.
While we do not yet know exactly how all of this may have unfolded, it is worth noting that other very similar creatures appeared in different cultures - not only geographically distant but also with respect to various historical moments.
In the image to the left we can see that the same type of creature is present in a history of Mesopotamia written during the III Century BC from the priest Beroso; his name was Oannes, his body was similar to that of a fish, he lived only in water, and had feet similar to those of man.
As I mention in the broadcast, take a look at the similarities between the Dogon (Africa) and Anasazi (US) cliff dwellings. Clearly both have been here for a long time and have much wisdom to share.
