Happy Beltane Eve!

Today I had one of those afternoons that reminds me of being a little girl. I spent time with my favorite 82-year-old friend in Goshen at her lovely lakefront home. Before heading over there, I had a real flashback to childhood May Day celebrations when, for some reason, I always felt compelled to gather violets into old strawberry baskets handwoven and tied with ribbons, delivering these in the predawn hours on neighbors’ porches. This afternoon, I gathered a salad full of wild violet leaves and flowers for David and me, but then picked another bag to gift to my friend. This extra bag of edible flowers and nature’s tender “lettuce” was an even bigger hit than her requested bag of dandelion greens!

Dandelions

Salad with violets

Unbeknownst to me as a little girl, May Day represents a celebration of flowers and ribbons, and Beltane’s fire festival honors the Earth in preparation for an abundant growing season. Looking out on our wild new yard today, I saw a meadow in full bloom with a harvest I didn’t plant. When we lived in Madison, we had a couple wild violet plants that barely flowered yet still allowed for occasional salad touches. We had both longed for more violets than we knew what to do with. Well! Ask and you shall receive. The below photo shows only a tiny portion of the violets currently dancing their purple and white flowers around our yard:

Wild violets in our yard

To my surprise, we also have the tulips I mentally requested in the dead of winter:

tulips

Squirrels or someone with a quirky sense of natural style planted tulips and daffodils in the strangest places around our property. I’ve enjoyed watching them burst into color along with the dandelions, violets and creeping Charlie. Speaking of plants responding to my mental requests, today, my 82-year-old friend gave me three blackberry canes to replant in our yard. That request only just went out! We now have blackberries working double duty as fruit bearers and bramble discouragement to people cutting through our yard. Our landlord is working on the back fence for squash and melons as I type, and tomorrow we will actually put soil into the raised beds.

This yard will take some major work to turn into the wild, permaculture, medicinal, 4-season garden, faery haven in my mind. I have spent weeks hauling mulch from huge piles into foot deep beds and hugelkultur in various spots across the yard. Mulch is freakin’ heavy!!!! This weekend, I had just begun to wonder if I am not completely off my rocker to have taken on such an ambitious project, but the colorful bursts of flowers and huge harvests of free greens have changed my tune. I remembered that I made a pact with the Spirits of the Land to honor this forgotten piece of property and love it into a productive, beautiful, healing relationship with humans. I can feel the faeries smiling. Our yard is wild, but happy right now. And so am I.

Beltane Blessings and Happy May Day!

Last Two Days for April Specials

Healing Skills Reclamation

This $77 Special Past Life Reading focuses on your previous lifetime(s) as a healer, helping you to access deeply buried healing skills. Such skills may appear as “natural gifts,” because you’ve already studied and/or mastered them in previous or parallel lifetimes. We are each individual expressions of Infinite Potential; however, some of us resonate with and respond more strongly to certain healing or creative modalities. The Healing Skills Reclamation will help you find out why and will also help you to become aware of which modalities and skills may come easier for you or produce faster, more fluid results in this incarnation. This topic arises in Past Life Readings, but I’ve never offered it as a dedicated Special. Here’s your chance. Half hour reading may be doubled for a full hour.

Offer valid if prepaid by 4/30/13. Please contact me to sign up.

Natural Reset Tarot

This unusual Tarot reading combines wisdom from three decks at once — Robin Wood, The Faery Wicca Tarot, and the Wildwood Tarot. In keeping with the integration energies so prevalent on 2013 planet Earth, this combo reading explores different ways that similar themes run throughout different areas of your lifetime(s) — past, present and possibly even parallel … relationships, career, creativity … physical, mental, emotional, spiritual.

The goal of this reading is to provide Archetypes, tools and themes to help you bring vague, abstract “senses” and “intuitions” into more tangible, actionable understanding. As humanity faces major evolutionary challenges, embodying and re-membering the ancient ways and latent powers can help bring those flickers of the new reality into more obvious physical manifestation. We simply don’t create on one level. Rather, we bring our visions, imaginations, inspirations, soul longings and innovations into Being. We invoke Archetypes and symbols without even realizing we’re doing so. Without REAL-izing we’re doing so. Creation bursts forth from the subconscious mind, and this Natural Reset Tarot helps to bring more of that subconscious mind under conscious influence –the best of both worlds as humanity continues its Awakening.

$55.55/half hour or $111/hour. This Special is valid if prepaid by 4/30/13. Please contact me to schedule.

Atacama Humanoid: Alien or Faery Realm?

With all the interest in the six-inch-high Atacana humanoid possible “ET” or “alien” that has human DNA but remains “a mystery,” I’m just curious why no one seems to have wondered if this little body is extradimensional rather than extraterrestrial. I’ve posted this video before, but check it out again:

Now compare it to this photo:

Atacama-Humanoid

Things that make you go hmmm …

[UPDATE: I’m bumping up a comment and my response into the main post:

Patrick: “I genuinely believe in dwarves, fairys, and such like, but that video in the woods is a fake, the special effects are quite poor really. A shame, but no elemental is going to get caught that easily!! 🙂 ”

My response: “Maybe so on the video, but I have seen creatures that size myself when I was a child. I’ve also had lots of peripheral vision and telepathic encounters with elementals and Nature spirits. Faked video or not, supposedly the little body is real and scientists don’t appear to be addressing this other realm of possibilities. 🙂 “]

For people interested in the crossovers between Faery Lore and reports of ET sightings, I highly recommend Cassandra Eason’s book, “A Complete Guide to Fairies & Magical Beings.” I have an older edition than the one shown on Amazon. The book jacket description on mine reads:

A Complete Guide to Fairies and Magical Beings introduces you to the enchanting world of these beautiful and powerful creatures. From wood nymphs to lorelei, goblins to pixies, Cassandra Eason explores fascinating fairy myths and legends from around the world, and shows you how to unlock fairy energy and magic for yourself. You will discover:

“Stories and myths associated with fairies and the fairy kingdom

“Ways to find the hidden world of fey beings

“Fascinating case studies of individuals who have seen the little people

“The healing and transforming power of fairy energy

“An almanac listing all the different types of fairies

“If you have ever believed in a world beyond the everyday, this is the book to help you find it.”

Eason includes some compelling discussion of correspondences between goblins and Greys, along with many other commonalities between ancient stories and firsthand reports about ET’s, encounters with gods and goddesses and unexplained phenomena. In my extensive research on Celtic tradition, I’ve also run across many stories of a shorter race of humans known as Picts, whom many people believe went to live in the woods, grew smaller, and eventually became what we call beings from the Faery Realm. Celtic Myths are filled with references to Faery Women, and the well-researched novel, “The Mists of Avalon” describes full-grown human-faery hybrids who only reach around three feet high.

I have not personally paid much attention to Atacama Humanoid story, although I’m sure the exposure it’s getting at the Huffington Post, the nice summary of media coverage at Divine Cosmos, and curiosity from SIRIUS moviegoers will open more public discourse about ET’s — and, hopefully also, ED’s (extradimensionals). We shall see …

LOL … sometimes some of us already do. 😉

Just wanted to pose the possibility …

Wild Foraging: What’s Already Happening in Nature?

David put together this great resource for Transition Goshen’s “Open Space” Meeting, and we both thought some of my readers might find the information interesting and helpful as well.

Topic: What’s already happening in nature?

foraging & wild edibles
leaf mulch
minimum effort and resources
less control over nature

Lawn Totalitarian Rule

Discussion notes:

Beneficial plants and “weeds”

Right this very moment we are surrounded by abundant food, healing herbs, and fertilizer – if only we had the eyes to see them not as “weeds” and understand how to use them properly! – that we routinely try to rid from our gardens and yards. It somehow all seems very resource-intensive, unnecessary, and backwards.

This discussion centered around embracing beneficial plants and resources/processes already naturally occurring in our yards, gardens, and neighborhoods that require little or no effort to grow or harvest while providing great potential benefit.

Why do we work so hard to eradicate so many established, resilient edible & beneficial “weeds” from our gardens and yards in order to painstakingly cultivate/propagate a very narrow variety of finicky “acceptable” plants of equal or lesser nutritive value which requires tremendous resources from us (time & effort) and the earth (additional water & higher quality soil – likely sourced off-site)?

And, why do we spend a great deal of time and effort every fall to rid our lawns of leaves that are nutrient dense and can easily be used to enrich our gardens and lawns?

Forget manna from heaven – let’s learn to properly use these bountiful natural resources that already surround us!

Foraging/Wild Edibles

As there are frequently “look-alike” plants that could potentially be harmful, it would be wise and prudent to learn to forage and identify wild edibles from an expert to raise our awareness and confidence levels.

Local Expert Foraging & Wild Edible Resources:
Within our community it was suggested that Paul Steury would be a great resource. We will coordinate with Paul to request that he create a group event.

Elkhart County Parks is offering the following wild edibles tasting and hike:

“Wild Edibles”

Spring brings a bounty of nature’s best succulent wild edibles. Fried dandelions, wild leek, stinging nettle soup, cattail muffins with mint and sassafras tea to name a few. Please join us as we sample some of nature’s best recipes. Your taste buds will thank you! A wild edibles hike will complete our program so dress appropriately.

Date: Sunday, April 28, 2013
Time: 2 – 4 p.m.
Cost: $4/person or $10/family
Preregister by: Thursday, April 25
Call (574) 535-6458
Location: Black Maple Shelter, Ox Bow County Park
(from the Elkhart County Parks Events Calendar at http://www.elkhartcountyparks.org/)

Regional Expert Foraging & Wild Edible Resources:
For regional experts, if there is adequate interest we could explore what would be required (cost, minimum number of registered participants) to have Chicago-based urban foraging expert Nance Klehm lead an urban foraging hike or have Wisconsin-based “Wild Eats” founders Linda Conroy and “Little John” Holzwart prepare a group wild food dining experience.

Nance Klehm information:
(from: http://spontaneousvegetation.net/bio/)
“Nance Klehm is a steward of the earth. She is an ecological systems designer, landscaper, horticultural consultant, and permacultural grower, as well as an in demand consultant, speaker, and teacher. She is respected internationally for her work on land politics and growing for fertility.”

“She is the bioinstigator-in-residence at the Center for Land Interpretation’s off-the-grid site in the desert outside of Wendover, Utah. Since 2007, Nance has worked with post-consumer materials (including solid and liquid human waste, grey water from sinks and showers, food, yard waste, manure, and cardboard) and transformed these materials into biologically rich soil (using decomposition, filtering, and fermentation). The resulting waste-sponge soil systems sustain a habitat of edible and medicinal plants, digestion of soil salinity, and the capturing, storing and use of precipitation.”

“She lives and grows in the middle of Little Village, a densely packed, diverse urban neighborhood in the heart of Chicago. Her house and land are daily practice in permaculture and urban living. She has worked with chickens, quails, rabbits, fish, and dairy animals. Nance is bilingual in Spanish and English, understands basic French, is a canner, a preserver, practices yoga and meditation, has traveled the world, and can be totally hilarious.”

Leaf Mulch & Wild Edibles resources:

Leaf Mulch information:

At the very least, mulch your leaves into your lawn rather than raking them to the curb to have the city dispose of them for you. Better yet, save your shredded leaves to use as mulch in your garden the next season. I own an electric mulching leaf vacuum as well as a mulching mower (which can be used with the bag to catch the mulched leaves to save for next season’s garden or without the bag to put the shredded leaves on your lawn) that I would be happy to lend anyone in the fall.

(the following information is from the article “Using Leaves for Composting”: http://compostguide.com/using-leaves-for-composting/)

“The leaves of one large shade tree can be worth as much as $50 of plant food and humus. Pound for pound, the leaves of most trees contain twice as many minerals as manure. For example, the mineral content of a sugar maple leaf is over five percent, while even common pine needles have 2.5 percent of their weight in calcium, magnesium, nitrogen and phosphorus, plus other trace elements.”

“Since most trees are deep-rooted, they absorb minerals from deep in the soil and a good portion of these minerals go into the leaves. See the accompanying chart for an analysis of the nutrient elements in fallen leaves.”

“Actually, these multi-colored gifts from above are most valuable for the large amounts of fibrous organic matter they supply. Their humus-building qualities mean improved structure for all soil types. They aerate heavy clay soils, prevent sandy soils from drying out too fast, soak up rain and check evaporation.”

“The ability of leaf mold to retain moisture is almost miraculous. Subsoil can hold a mere 20 percent of its weight; good, rich topsoil will hold 60 percent, but leaf mold can retain 300 to 500 percent of its weight in water.”

“Freshly fallen leaves pass through several stages from surface litter to well-decomposed humus partly mixed with mineral soil. Leaf mold from deciduous trees is somewhat richer in such mineral foods as potash and phosphorus than that from conifers. The nitrogen content varies from .2 to 5 percent.”

How to Protect Yourself from Empathing Societal Angst and EMF Madness

This is not intended to be a comprehensive article, but I wanted to respond to multiple rounds of questions in emails and sessions from people finding it hard to stay balanced right now. Whether you find yourself reacting to increased EMF frequencies from Smart Meters, cell phones, and other electronics, or the people around you seem like assaults of negativity, this article contains some quick, multi-layered suggestions for dealing with disruptions to your natural energy field. I don’t have any financial relationship with any of these vendors. I’m just sharing things that have worked for me or that I personally know have helped other people. Please feel free to share other tips you’ve found effective in the comments section. 🙂

SAR Shields and Q-links

I use both of these items, and I have found them top of the line in terms of lowering my EMF reactivity. The SAR Shield in particular, I have put on both my iPhone and my Smart Meter, and I’ve noticed extreme results from both.

I don’t have an EMF reader other than my own body, but I can tell you that when I first got my iPhone 4S, it made me so ill I wondered if I had gotten another brain injury. I couldn’t think straight, walk straight, had extreme nausea, dizziness, fatigue and malaise, even with my iPhone turned on in another room! As a last ditch effort not to return it, I ordered a SAR Shield, not expecting much, since I’ve not had great results from other cell phone “protectors.” I had already tried some others on my iPhone, and they didn’t even touch the radiation poisoning effects I experienced. Some of them actually increased those feelings! Until I added the SAR Shield, the only relief I got was from turning off the phone, and even that took some recuperation time. Once I added the SAR Shield, though, I could hold and operate my iPhone without feeling like I was being fried alive.

Having had such success on my iPhone, I decided to try my extra SAR shield on my Smart Meter. I have never seen this advertised as effective for a Smart Meter, nor am I suggesting it’s an effective cure. I did find that I stopped feeling so zapped by the pulses once I added this unobtrusive sticker on the bottom of the meter, facing the ground. I would prefer not to have a Smart Meter at all, but it’s in an area of the house we don’t frequent. Given the arrests and harassment happening with people demanding their Smart Meters be removed, I’ve opted for the SAR Shield at this time.

David introduced me to the Q-link back in Summer 2011 when I started walking around the house like a drunken sailor during Solar Flares. I would completely lose my balance to the point of comedy, although the laughs wore off once I realized I really couldn’t control the vertigo. He had purchased a Q-link from our chiropractor friends a few years prior, dug it out, and had me put it on. Presto, no more balance issues, and I also stopped feeling so fried around my laptop and fluorescent lights. We got me one, and I found it very helpful for shielding me from electromagnetic pollution, and especially from the effects of Solar Flares and CME’s. Most people seem to react once the waves hit Earth; however, I found through retroactive research that I am most sensitive to the flares and CME’s as they eject from the Sun itself. Having seen the positive effects for me, David now wears his Q-link all the time, too. The Q-link isn’t a cure-all for me, as I still feel way better away from fluorescent lights, high tension wires and certain computers, but it makes life much more balanced and tolerable.

Although the SAR Shield and Q-link are for electromagnetic protection, it’s worth noting that we are all electromagentic beings. Other peoples’ energy fields come at us, in part, via electromagnetic pulses, so these shielding devices can feel somewhat helpful for such encounters. More importantly, we are more susceptible to others’ energy manipulations or disruptions when our own energy field gets weakened. By protecting our field, these types of shields also keep us stronger to deal with emotional bleed-through and empathic experiences.

Helpful Crystals and Stones: Rocks Rock!

When we need to ground ourselves, what better grounding device than turning to crystals and stones that grow deep within Earth? I’m just going to list some particularly effective ones here. Again, this is not meant to be a comprehensive list:

Charoite: This purple stone helps ward off negative vibrations and emotions from other people. Keep it by your bed to protect your dream state, or on your person during the day. Even a small stone offers large protective benefits.

Sodalite: This blue and white stone looks kind of like planet Earth, and it has both grounding and protective effects. I keep a large hunk right on my bed stand and also use it in baths.

Salt: Sea Salt, Celtic Sea Salt, Himalayan Sea Salt … any of these natural (unrefined) salts offer both grounding and magickal protection. Creating a circle of salt around your bed can ward off negative spirits, thoughts, and emotions. Using it in a bath can help you detox both stress and toxins through your skin. The trace minerals in salt also permeate your skin and help you to calm down biochemically.

Raw Ruby: This is one of my favorite stones for grounding. Tania Marie made me a copper wrapped raw ruby and faery quartz necklace that I wear on days I anticipate will be particularly frazzling to the nerves. Unlike cut rubies, you can find raw rubies quite cheap in rock shops or online.

Amethyst: This one’s tricky, and you will need to observe yourself to know how or if to use it. I love amethyst, and it does have spiritually protective qualities; however, it is a very high vibe, non-grounded crystal. If you feel depressed or disconnected from Spirit, then amethyst may work wonders for you. If you feel totally disconnected from the Earth, then amethyst will likely increase those feelings. I get a wicked headache if I wear amethyst during a Solar Flare or if I’ve spent too much time in my upper chakras, but I love the high vibe uptick on a dreary day.

Hematite: This one’s an update, because I forgot to add it during the first go-round, even though I was wearing a hematite bracelet! I use hematite in the area right behind our Smart Meter to buffer the EMF’s, and I wear a hematite bracelet most of the time. I find the combo of a Q-link and hematite bracelet provides a noticeable boost to my energy.

Runes

The THORN Rune and the AR Rune are particularly protective against electromagnetic or HAARP manipulations, nasty thoughts projected at you, as well as empathic bleedthrough of others’ emotions, including the societal pulse.

THORN (also known as “Dorn,” “Thurisaz” and “D’hoarrn”) acts like a semi-permeable membrane, allowing good energies through, but preventing the passage of anything untoward. Think of the thorny hedge in Sleeping Beauty that kept everyone away for 100 years until just the right prince came along to penetrate the hedge and awaken the kingdom.

The AR Rune works more specifically against ghosts, spirits, “ill-witching” energies, or subconscious sabotage programs.

Runes in general work on the subconscious level, so they can effectively bypass negative programming, past life blocks, or split intentions. I have studied several systems of Runes in-depth for many years. I find the Runa Faery tradition and the Armanen system the most powerful for reprogramming the subconscious mind. Since the subconscious mind creates our reality, finding conscious ways to influence it can dramatically alter our external projections. Both the Runa Faery tradition and the Armanen system are self-protecting in that few people find and delve into these Runic patterns. The above links include basic instructions on how to use these Runes for protection. Deeper information than the links I provided is out there for those with a desire and resonance to find it. Runemagick.com contains some comprehensive courses on Runes and energy direction for those who feel drawn to a different relationship with Runes than the more commonly known Elder Futhark offers.

Good Old-Fashioned Prayer

Simply put, prayer works. It really does. Focus more on what you want, feeling gratitude for already receiving that protection and peace, and you will feel stronger and faster effects. A blanket, “Holy Spirit, please fill me and flood me with your Holy Presence” works wonders. Some people may substitute “Great Spirit” with similar effects.

Get Dirty

Actually, Mama Earth prefers you use the term, “soil,” but whatever you call it, make contact. Put your hands or bare feet on or in the ground and feel the natural rhythm of Mother Earth. Hug a tree. Smell the grass. Eat real food. Hint: real food comes from the ground. You might even need to wash it! Eating organic, fresh, real, minimally processed food creates an energy signature in you that more closely matches the natural world. You become what you eat, and when you eat Nature, then your own frequency mirrors Nature more than all the artificial stimulants and distractions of the post-modern, illusory world.

Charge Your Energy Field Before Leaving Home

I learned these exercises over a decade ago from kundalini yoga:

1. Stand with your feet hip distance apart and arms out to the sides at shoulder height. Swing from left to right with your breath. Some instructors say to keep your feet flat on the floor. Others allow for a bit of shift as you twist. Feel which works best for you. You’ll know it’s working if you feel a surge of energy and electrical charge spreading around you from your fingertips.

2. Stand and bend your knees, hip distance apart, arms hanging at your sides. On the in-breath sweep your arms over your head as you straighten your legs and lift onto your tip toes. Exhale and return to the starting position. Repeat until you feel charged above, below and around you.

3. Practice the Breath of Fire. Sit in a comfortable position with feet or buttocks on the ground. Inhale and then begin to exhale only, using your belly to push the air out. Your lungs will naturally refill between exhales. Practice 30 seconds- 2 minutes as you feel able to strengthen and charge your vitality and energy field.

Sing!

Release energy by making a joyful noise unto the heavens. Watch what words you’re repeating through song, since music intensifies the power of words. Once you find sacred chants or affirmative songs you love, let ‘er rip. You’ll strengthen your throat and heart chakras, enabling you to align your words with your heart. You’ll also increase your intuition and spiritual awareness, joy (2nd chakra), confidence, and feel more grounded in your body through the physical act of singing instead of just mentally mumbling the words.

Experiment to find other things that work for you, and then make note of these.

When you find a repertoire that helps you feel balanced, you can more easily choose the right thing at the right time to shift you into the vibration and comfort level you desire.

All the best to each of you in these wild and potent times!

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse: Tom Lescher ~ April 24, 2013 Pele Report

This is an unusual Tom Lescher video in terms of resonance. In reading the comments on YouTube, I noticed that viewers either totally connected with what he says, or they completely rejected this message. Very polarized, just like the energies right now! I find that interesting, so I’m posting this one for those who will find the resonance. If you don’t, the message is either not for you right now, or it’s worthwhile shining some light on your resistance and asking “What do I need to let go of?” I will say that in sessions, my various clients have shared concerns about all of the dynamics he mentions, especially this week.

As Tom comments, “the whole thing was about the moon eclipse……,” which he mentions as “tomorrow.” Please note, the report came out on Wednesday, so the Full Moon (partial) Eclipse is today. The water background noise is fairly loud on this video, but again, I’m sharing the video in case the message resonates for you.

Happy Full Moon! Make of it what you will. 🙂
