Kaypacha ~ Pele Report: May 10, 2017

Thank you, Mary, for sending the link to this video. Yes, I am feeling it, and I have noticed many people having breakthroughs this week. I’ve also noticed a surge of creativity in my own life. I had attributed it to clearing out the blue house/office/guesthouse for the new family moving in there Monday, plus getting all the renovations scheduled for our new house. Oh, and Reishi coffee, LOL!

I actually love moving, so I expected this surge of excitement as I ponder a new yard to permaculture and a whole new house to feng shui. I’m so excited about my ideas that I can barely keep a lid on it. Even with all that in the mix to explain the surge in energy, though, I’ve noticed that errands or tasks that would normally take 3-4 hours are finishing up in 30 minutes. Huge swaths of time open up only to fill themselves with something profound within moments. My new session lengths seem to reflect these changes, too, as we are accomplishing so much more in less time, which then means the full hour sessions are off the chart transformative.

With all these people having breakthroughs and the fact that I’m somehow way ahead of schedule with moving tasks despite being super busy with sessions, I should have known there’s something up with the energies right now. Big time co-creation is in effect. Here’s Kaypacha with the Pele Report, sharing both the positive and the negative aspects of these energies. Time to grow up — co-create your own reality, or someone else will:

Like a seething volcano, just about to blow,

I feel the tension building in my mind, my heart, and my soul.

The energy that is rising, is for me to create,

And the more I can keep it together, the more I can do something GREAT!

 

Feeling that Scorpio full Moon? The kundalini rising? Are you about to blow? Indeed, it can be like an earthquake shaking our foundations these days, disturbing the static order of things, destabilizing the establishment. Might be a little unsettling. Can put everybody a little bit on edge. Can give people a short fuse, impatience, intensified desires. Of course, this is just the way it is, it is time for the energy to rise that has been worked upon within. This is neither good nor bad, [but] more. It CAN be good or bad depending upon our choices regarding where to put it and what to do with it. Good time to choose wisely. The end of the video, I believe, is the way…. Injoy!

May 2017 Specials

I’m posting these on their own, since they were somewhat buried in the earlier announcement about rate changes and new offerings.

If you have more complex questions, you can add time. Available if prepaid on or before May 31, 2017. Depending on how this goes, this special might become a regular offering, but we’ll see, as I prefer life away from the computer. Please contact me to sign up.

Four Eccentric Ways Trees Can Heal You

More tree love, and, um, yeah … guess I am pretty eccentric. 😉 I have regularly engaged in all of these ways since childhood, and I can honestly say, they work!

Via RMN:

Fauns, elves, pixies, ghouls, trolls – the image of forests and woodlands arouse many feelings of mystery and intrigue.  Not only do forests bring to mind mythical creatures, but they’re also the home of countless folklore tales and superstitions.  Did you know that the Druids and the Germanic Pagans used to worship trees?  No wonder the forest, in all its ethereal splendor, is the perfect place for us to take solitary strolls.

Interestingly, forests also provide the perfect place to holistically heal ourselves.  All our daily tensions, struggles and woes can perish through some simple forest therapy.  We all have forests, bush-lands, and woodlands near us.  But how can we make the best out of these erudite ecosystems?  You’ll find some suggestions below.

Leaves and Blooms

I love that the yard just keeps blooming and blooming, but even in a lull of blooms, different colored leaves make things interesting. Below, you can see anise hyssop and purple sand cherry mixing things up beyond the blooms. As I design our new yard, I look to the old, seeing what works, what forms I love, what colors and tastes I simply cannot live without, and which ones fit here but not there — everything in its proper time and place. For now, I thought I’d share some loveliness with you:

Those lime green leaves will eventually sport delicate purple flowers that the bees absolutely love, but even without blooms, I enjoy the anise hyssop pop of color tucked among the yet-to-bloom irises.

Incremental and Lasting Change: Create New Systems and Safety Nets Before Summoning Destruction

Today’s post is actually a comment I left when Ines, the writer of the blog post “Starving the War Machine ~ Let’s Try This Again,” privately emailed me to challenge me to advise people to crash the financial system en masse. Her post throws down the gauntlet to “Hundreds and thousands of people in the Alternative Media and the great researchers, truthseekers, wanna be gurus and Cult leaders that come from all walks of life [and] pride themselves for the knowledge/information/intel they acquired” who continue to operate in the financial system. Apparently, one of my readers, Anthony, suggested in the comments section that Ines contact me, which she did. You can read her post by clicking through the above link. Here are my own thoughts on her ideas:

Thank you for emailing me Ines, and Anthony, thanks for the suggestion. While I personally spent many, many years starving the war machine and then later trying to get our community set up so that it could survive the kind of financial chaos Ines is championing, I have found that a) most people are not interested in self-sufficiency or even resilience; b) this sort of widespread chaos is exactly what the PTB are hoping for; and c) it takes money to get things in place as a safety net.

This is not an excuse. I have poured thousands of dollars into rehabbing land and creating a food forest, which I’m turning over to 5 other people when we move. I also use these gardens to make bumper crop food donations to local food banks, feed neighbors, friends and impoverished people I encounter. I address the issues in the most practical ways I find, which includes doing my best to get local communities to do what you, Ines, and I and others are personally doing: taking responsibility for ourselves, growing our own foods, using plants to heal, focusing on energetic as well as community resilience.

In America, we are nowhere near the level of resilience where I could in good conscience recommend people try to crash the financial system in a week. Right now there are not enough safety nets in place. We are moving to a city that has many more of these nets in place — several public food forests, many, many community gardens, an ethic of “Community Capitalism,” where those who do have money voluntarily funnel it back into local projects that support people and the earth. I forget where you live Continue reading

Victory for Ron Finley ~ The Gangsta Gardener Redefines the Victory Garden

Great news for anyone who has followed The Ron Finley Project on my blog or elsewhere: despite the big bank shenanigans that threatened to evict Ron and his beautiful community garden, Ron Finley fought wrongful eviction and won. This is a huge victory for communities and social justice. As Ron says, ““This is bigger than my garden. This is bigger than me, period.”

Back in World War 2, people planted victory gardens, turning lawns into food production and increasing self-sufficiency and healthy, fresh foods. Ron’s been fighting his own war in South Central Los Angeles — but his revolution is quite literally “radical,” from the roots. His garden teaches youth where their food comes from, how to grow it, and serves as a fresh source of nutrients and beauty in an otherwise food desert.

Thank you to all who donated money, time, Reiki, sharing and/or positive intentions and energy to help save the Ron Finley Project. You can read the details of this community triumph by clicking here. Victory is sweet!

Celebrating Life and Love at May Day / Beltane

This is such an excellent recap of the Beltane energies. Personally, I celebrate “Beltane Week,” all the way from April 30th through “Solar Beltane,” which falls on Cinco de Mayo this year. Lots of celebrations! Jamie offers some excellent ideas of how to tap into this energy to move and improve your life. Love and blessings, Laura

May Day falls on the first day of May, and Beltane ‘proper’ is when the Sun is at 15 degrees of Taurus — usually around the 4th or 5th of May. In 2017, it’s Solar Beltane on May 5th.

Beltane — a Gael name for this time of year — celebrates the beginning of Summer on ancient calendars, and marks the halfway point between the Spring Equinox and the Summer Solstice. Spring has sprung, and Summer is on its way.

It’s a seasonal celebration of Love and the Life blooming and ripening from Spring, which promised, it was hoped, an abundant, fertile Summer and a good Autumn harvest. If previous harvests were blighted and the Winter even more harsh, the hope for the coming year helped to keep people’s heart-fires and resilience alive.

Given the Great Shift that’s underway to restore “the…

Travelling Back Home.~ Well Dressings~

Happy Beltane! I just had to share this lovely (and educational) post by Sue Dreamwalker, who grew up dancing the Maypole in a town that makes these delightful Well Dressings from flowers and clay. I grew up celebrating May Day without knowing why. I would gather violets– real or silk versions- dress them with green things in little green plastic strawberry baskets and sneak out to leave them on neighbors’ porches in the early morning hours of May 1st. I had no idea why, but I took this task very seriously. Decades later, I discovered Beltane, and some recent DNA testing confirms that all of this is quite literally “in my blood.”

In any case, I wish everyone a Happy Beltane (Happy Samhain down under), and I hope you enjoy Sue’s magical post as much as I did.

Blessed Be!

I travelled back to the place I grew up last weekend. It brought back so many memories for me. Of a time when I was a young girl with no idea of where life would take me.

Each Sunday I would walk the 15 minutes  distance of the village from our home to walk up to the Chapel where we would go to Sunday School in the Methodist Chapel.  Often we would walk it twice a day on Sunday as we went to afternoon service and evenings on a special occasion, such as Easter or Harvest Festivals..

I  being the eldest of 5 siblings  would  lead my bother and 3 sisters by the hand as we would  Sing in the choir, often being the only choir some weeks. I often think we were made to go, just so as my Mother and Father could…
