The Importance of Starhawk’s “City of Refuge”

As predicted, levels of intensity, exposure, and reactivity continue to increase, so we best learn how to deal with rapidly thinning veils. I’ve said for years that this is not a time for keeping secrets and hiding from your Shadow, as the energies no longer support codependency, collusion, treason, or sweeping things under the rug. They just don’t. I’m rarely surprised by “shocking” revelations, as I read people’s energy signatures and therefore notice the darkness amidst the light, the smudges, the shameful feelings, fear and Shadow boxing. We will see more and more of this as the veils continue to thin.The Hopi prophecies even predict people losing their minds due to enhanced abilities to “see.”

Best remedies?

As I have said for years, we must each address our own Shadow. Doing so takes tremendous courage and often results in internal and public shaming or rejection by friends, family, and society. Do it anyway. The energies do not support running from your own Shadow. It is far easier to address the Shadow from a place of quiet safety than to have a Tower Card situation force you to do so, but these times offer lightning strikes and paradigm shifts galore. As Carl Jung said, “When an inner situation is not made conscious, it appears outside as fate.”

Learn to recognize your own responsibilities of giving away your own power, and learn how to reclaim any energies forcibly taken away from you –by whatever means provide strength and power to, not power over. The means of reclamation themselves usually demand engagement with your own Shadow. As within, so without. Walk the Middle Way of Atreyu. Sift through complex moral dilemmas and move beyond black and white thinking. Find your own firm moral compass in each situation by assessing your heart, intuition, facts and your awareness of others’ energy signatures. Freedom requires responsibility. Get used to it. There’s much, much more to come in terms of revelations.

And now, onto some recommended reading:

Starhawk has released a sequel to her highly prophetic novel, “The Fifth Sacred Thing,” which I’ve referenced many times on this blog, especially that novel’s exploration of El Mundo Bueno and El Mundo Malo. I still recommend reading “The Fifth Sacred Thing,” but the urgency of our times leads me to suggest her latest novel, “City of Refuge” even if you have not previously read “The Fifth Sacred Thing.” This new novel begins right where the earlier novel ends, and it deals with issues we are now — or will very soon be– facing as all the old structures ordering life and perspective crash and burn.

Specifically:

How do we convince people to walk away from their own enslavement if they have no concept of anything better?

How do we transition people from utter dependency into an empowered life if they’ve only known slavery, abuse, learned helplessness, and top-down control?

How do we integrate vast armies (real and metaphorical) of people “just following orders,” whether in the military, political “honey traps,” cults, torture chambers, or areas of life where these ways seem like “the only ways available”?

What do we do with people who have been so abused and broken that all they know is abuse?

How do we instill a positive sense of Self in people who have lost their own humanity through abuse, educational and media brainwashing, and/or collectivism?

How do we treat people who have failed — sometimes in spectacular ways — but who repent of those failings and attempt to make restitution?

What do we do with unrepentant psychopaths with every likelihood of repeated and increasing offenses?

How do we tell the difference between them?

How do we get real food into people who’ve only subsisted on chemicals, heavy metals, addictive BigPharma drugs, Frankenfoods and processed pseudo nutrients?

How do we fight for change against powerful, conscienceless forces without resorting to their level and methods?

How do we teach broken, abused people to lead themselves without ourselves becoming the next pop icon, guru, dictator, villain, or cult leader when the people we are helping project the only things they know onto us?

How do we step into leadership roles when that triggers our own need for Shadow Work, as well as others’ unresolved Shadows massively projected onto us?

What is truly compassionate, and how do we navigate hierarchies of compassion?

These questions and more run throughout Starhawk’s masterful “City of Refuge.” It’s a gritty, disturbing, yet redemptive book, and I cannot recommend it highly enough during these troubled times.

 

 

Opportunities for Influence

As Within, So Without. Indeed, so much of our outer life depends on what sorts of healing, initiations, and/or processes we engage within. On the other hand, we do live in times of tremendous collective influence, and finding that right balance as we move into the Age of Aquarius seems quite elusive on the world stage!

Emergence can quickly get co-opted into emergency, yet we also can direct from within our own peaceful, liberated hearts and minds. If you feel so led, please take your pick among any or all of these key emergence/emergency hot zones this summer:

Expected today: US House of “Representatives” voting on the DARK (Deny Americans the Right to Know) Act. Masquerading as a mandatory GMO labeling law, this bill makes mandatory labeling completely voluntary with zero consequences for disobeying the law. It also gives a free pass to the most GMO-ridden crops, nullifies any state and local GMO labeling laws (even those already in effect for years), and some attorneys fear that tricky legaleze (legal sleeze?!) may open the door to making it illegal for non-organically certified small farms to list their produce or seeds as non-GMO.

The Senate already passed this monstrosity, and the House voted for a similar bill last year. We know most of the Senate and Representatives are bought and paid for by Monsanto and Big Pharma, brainwashed or bribed into shilling for those hell bent on destroying our planet, sovereignty and health. I’m personally sending the AR Rune right smack dab into the mix. The AR Rune shines light in dark places, can break through brainwashing, repels ill wishing magic, restores honor, and can also transform a DARK “Yes” vote to a shining “No.” Worth a shot! Reiki Healing Attunements to blow away the fog of denial and corruption can also help.

This vote is expected very soon, so work your magic ASAP. With the TPP and TTIP trade treaties, what happens in America doesn’t stay in America, so if you’re overseas, this process potentially affects you, too.

Ongoing: Brexit and other proposed EU Exits.

Sending light and discernment to your own country and asking for the highest good of all — can help these situations expand into their own emergence, rather than devolving into emergencies that end up creating even tighter regulations and controls. “As within, so without” includes inviting the Wisdom to see both sides’ points so that real, tangible, beneficial solutions can reveal themselves. Nothing in politics happens by accident. Ken at http://redefininggod.com has been detailing these anticipated moves for years. I don’t always agree with everything he posts, but awareness of the coup countercoup charade of the world stage right now can help to find local, person to person, humane solutions that create evolution instead of just another revolution that takes you right back to where you started, only with tighter controls.

July 18-21: Republican National Convention, Cleveland, Ohio

It will take massive amounts of prayer, healing energy, peaceful intentions and deliberate actions for the highest good of all in order for the US not to devolve into Civil War and/or Martial Law this fall. This is not a doomer prediction, as I know we each have influence; however, paid agitators and thugs have already been hired to disrupt the Republican National Convention. Even if nothing happens at the convention, an announcement of Trump is set to trigger riots if he does win … and likely to trigger a revolution if he doesn’t win.

The stakes have been raised, lit and the fires continually stoked. Those who wish to impose order from chaos are standing by with truckloads of gasoline to pour on high running emotions from all sides. I suggest the Reiki Mental Emotional Healing Symbol to surround this convention. For those not trained in Level 2 of Reiki, you can imagine healing, soft green light infusing harmony and peace in the crowds in Cleveland and other cities responding to events in Cleveland. Imagining a gentle rain might also help to keep heads cool enough to assess opportunities for emergence rather than reacting to gratuitous, race-baiting vitriol.

Let’s aim for people recognizing the humanity in each other and uniting to overthrow the gasoline purveyors intent on gaining more control from the chaos they ignite.

July 25-28: Democratic National Convention, Philadephia, Pennsylvania

This convention offers/threatens to wake up the idealistic Left to realize just how fixed and ridiculously controlled the system really is. Millions of Bernie supporters received a b!tch slap in the face and kick in the gut when their “People’s” candidate endorsed a former Monsanto lawyer, former and current Wall Street lapdog, should-be-indicted-but-isn’t (on multiple accounts) criminal, war mongerer endorsed by Dick Cheney and Karl Rove, and anti-women’s rights (on so many levels), vote-stealing, establishment candidate.

Say what?! Millions of super nice people just got a rude awakening.If cognitive dissonance does not fully take root, these people have a chance to leave the field and grow something truly grassroots.

The Democratic National Convention is, ironically, building a Donald Trump like wall to keep outsiders from entering, but Hillary’s most recent free pass from the FBI and ever more controversial Loretta Lynch has anger seething from both far Left and far Right with an increasing number of centrists joining the mix. Who knows what people have planned for this event? But we can rest assured various behind the scenes players intend to benefit from watching the People fight amongst themselves. All wars are bankers’ wars.

I suggest the AR Rune for this convention, too — to help people see behind the pretty words and lofty sentiments. What actions and long term results support these words? Where do the policies espoused by the speakers work directly against what they say they stand for? Where are the Feminists who truly love women? Where are the people empowering “the poor” not to be poor anymore? Where are the organic food lovers and small farmers truly wanting to feed the world real food? Where are the Earth lovers not wanting to give big corporations total control over our environment? Where do the ideals not match up with the policies? Where are the good-hearted idealists projecting their own good-hearted idealism onto people actively working against those ideals?

The Reiki Distant Healing Symbol can help infuse the present words and future plans with awareness of how we got here in the first place, as well as “been there, done that, and now it’s worse ‘solutions.'” Gentle loving-kindness can also help heal the wounds of yet another betrayal. Sending deep Earth energy and grounding to this convention can help to bring ideals into more concrete actions that actually align in the physical, tangible realm with ideals of equal rights for women, care of the Earth, care of communities.

Ultimately, we are the ones we are waiting for, and the sooner we realize that, the easier the rebuilding process will be. We can model what’s possible in our own lives, but we are also powerful beings. Voting machines are much more easily rigged than consciously directed energy and intentions are.

Blessed Be!

And see if you can find some way to be the blessing.:)

Soul Support

We’re in soulful times right now, as evidenced by extreme polarization and dissatisfaction on the world stage, coupled by so many individuals’ long held dreams finally coming true. If you find your soul alternately weeping, screaming and/or whooping it up, here are some good reminders and grounded support:

5 Signs Your Life is About to Go Through a Radical Change

(I’m hearing so many of these signs during sessions, and I know in our own lives, David and I are definitely going through a big time — and welcome –shift. The list at the above link allows you to take inventory to see how radical your soul’s next moves might become. When soul summoned opportunities knock, best to answer!)

The Tower Card

(I wrote the above linked article back in 2012, but if anything, the polarization has grown even more extreme. “Many people dread The Tower even more than Death or The Devil, but again, perspective plays an important role. Do we choose to focus on the lightning, the forcible removal of old paradigms, the free fall, or the fire? How does the implied trauma of this card shift if we acknowledge that the old paradigms no longer worked? The Tower was William Butler Yeats’ very favorite card, and it’s one of mine, too. It has a personal meaning for me, as I associate it with my 1998 brain injury, which arrived like a lightning strike and threw my entire sense of identity, thought patterns, and ways of being into a rocky sea. But you know what? That brain injury was the best thing that ever happened to me. Destroying the old reality opened an expansive and yet strangely intimate reality far beyond and far preferable to what I’d known before.” Read on to learn how to take advantage of the Tower Card’s inherent opportunities.)

El Mundo Bueno

(This was one of my most popular articles from 2014 — even more relevant today than before.)

If you’re feeling the Tower and El Mundo’s tug, and these articles only underscore that fact, I designed this month’s specials specifically in anticipation of the increased intensity. There’s no shame in seeking extra support and empowering input when you find yourself poised to make a change. In a world of all possibilities, why not prepare to launch instead of stressing over a possible lightning strike? When we recognize what our soul has summoned, we can position ourselves to receive instead of resist the coming changes. Exercising conscious influence in times of chaos takes advantage of opportunities and provides an extra edge in creating the life you’d most love to live.

JULY 2016 SPECIALS

Intuitive Preparedness Check-In

This is a return of a popular 2014 special, which I feel called to highlight again now due to so many people asking me about Brexit, potential US election chaos, gardening questions, and especially with so many people suddenly (since July 1) sensing new openings and opportunities that once seemed very far away. People want to know how to maintain an positive, proactive vibration and how to thrive while also shoring up any weak spots. This special responds to many comments, questions and private emails requesting my take on the question “What can I do right now?” — for specific individuals, rather than general guidelines and suggestions.

This hour session gives you access to my own intuitive scan of what areas of focus will provide you the greatest payback and sense of abundance, peace and security, with the least amount of resistance. Those looking to make larger lifestyle shifts can ask me to scan various lifestyle, location and/or community options to see which ones fit best with your vibration and heart’s desires. You can also use our time together to discuss energetic/magickal protection and manifestation tools and techniques, along with troubleshooting your most pressing concerns in various areas of life, including finances, food security, faith/spirituality/soul nurturing, relationships and/or land, including “garden guidance.”

I feel so strongly about helping people take steps from fear, denial and overwhelm into abundance, joy and freedom, that I’m keeping this pricing a simple $123. As Tolkien said, “Little by little, one travels far.”

Please contact me if you’d like to sign up for this special. Offer valid if prepaid on or before July 31, 2016.

 

$333 Intuitive Coaching Three-Pack

With regular intuitive or life coaching sessions running $175/hour, this special offers major savings at $333/three hours. I’ve found that even people who normally process things on their own feel challenged by the increased intensity and “sorting” of the Universe these days. As we continue with Earth changes, internal and galactic shifts, I feel called to offer a short burst of support to those in need. These sessions can be used close together or saved for a future need. You can use them in hour or half-hour segments. The entire package can be gifted to someone else, but (for simplicity of paperwork) these three-packs cannot be divided and shared among multiple individuals. Offer valid if prepaid on or before July 31, 2016. To schedule your first session or purchase the package, please contact me here.

Big Shifts and Timeline Splits

I’ve been too busy to post — teaching, doing sessions, gardening and re-creating, and hoo-boy, I’m feeling and witnessing the shifts! On both individual and collective levels timelines are splitting on the basis of resonance and choice. It’s truly bizarre watching some of the choices not to shift, as some of them have become hilariously obvious.

You really can’t make this stuff up. Or at least, if you made it up in a work of fiction, people would accuse you of padding the plot, using stock characters, or making themes too cliched and overly symbolic. Yet here we are. The Gemini in me dearly wishes I could share details, because they’re so funny, absurd and just downright weird … and in so many areas … but these are not my own details to share. Even the ones that are mine are linked into too many others whose lives don’t permit public blogging.

But wow. Some cool things are afoot. In my own life, I spent last week in a series of deep, involved dreams — the kind you know were not “just dreams.” In one such dream, I found myself sitting on a couch next to someone who had emotionally abused me for much of my life. Just as that person began the old bait and switch style “generosity,” I suddenly began dry heaving. Not only could I not swallow the bait and switch, but it was triggering an interdimensional vomit session.

This person yelled at me to get off “his” couch (which it wasn’t), so I ran to the bathroom and started vomiting concrete and gravelly sludge into the sink. The “vomit” came not from my stomach, but from my lungs, and it more than filled the sink. I awoke from the dream because I was literally dry heaving so loudly in bed that it pulled me out of sleep. The moment I awoke, though, I felt completely different. Free, light, and on a different timeline.

Sure enough, some “facts” and relationships were very different than they had been when I went to bed the night before. Also, in one of those cosmic winks I see so often in timeline jumps, in which some things no longer match up, the doorknob of the blue house now turns in the opposite direction as before. It used to require an extremely hard left turn to enter that house. As of that morning, the door started giving me all sorts of trouble, until a couple days later, I realized, “Ha! It’s the opposite now. A hard turn right gets you in with no effort. The timeline’s winking at me.” Sure enough, it works no problem to enter with a hard right turn, but in a further upgrade, it so happens our landlord is getting us entirely new doorknobs and keys for both front and back doors. This old front doorknob will move to replace the old garage entrance.

Doors are highly symbolic of timeline shifts. It’s one reason I paint portal doors to preferred realities. Since that shift, my mom’s old house is now under contract. It took a huge amount of work and two Reiki Healing Attunements, but that house sold in under three weeks amidst massive synchronicities. Those synchronicities are hallmarks of Reiki Healing Attunements and intensive prayer, both of which covered this entire process. I cannot share the details, because I don’t want to jeopardize the sale in any way, nor reveal private details … but holy, moly, are they ever over the top sync winks! Again, you can’t make this stuff up.

I’ve witnessed similarly decisive breaks with the old — some sad, but nonetheless feeling right — and some shocking, but also feeling right. This is not a good time to try to keep dirty little secrets under wraps. It’s also not a good time to demand more energy than you reciprocate or to try to use outmoded control mechanisms.People are waking up. It’s also important to remember that just because someone is no longer on your timeline, that doesn’t mean the person is necessarily wrong, bad or evil. It’s just no longer a match. Perhaps that person will jump to a more thriving option, or maybe they feel comfortable where they are with their current companions. The world continues to sort itself, and I find it fascinating how this Rubik’s cube will look in a few more months. So far 2016, has seen more twists and turns than your average year.

Election fraud keeps getting exposed not only on the national level, but also local, co-ops, and even in churches. Again, the local, co-op, and church details are not mine to report, but check out Ann K’s compilation on Hillary Clinton’s latest lawsuit on voter fraud to see what I mean on the national level.  From the astrology to Wikileaks, to full on legal watchdogs, lightning’s striking. Similar voter fraud has happened on both sides for years, especially in 2012; however, masses of people have begun to declare, “Enough is enough.”

It rarely feels good to implement tough love and erect firm boundaries, but effective timeline jumping sometimes requires such things. It definitely demands conscious choices for a better world: which patterns, people, institutions and stories stay? Which ones go? When those windows of opportunity present themselves, which ones will you recognize as the portals they are? Which ones will you choose to go through? Wellfield

As the Hopi say, “We are the ones we have been waiting for.” “This could be a good time.” I, for one, intend to make it so!

Blessed Be.

May 2016 Specials and June Classes

MAY 2016 SPECIALS

$44 Tarot Readings

 

Half hour tarot readings at 20% off the usual rate. Tarot readings offer an energetic check-in, the chance to ask questions about pending decisions or intentions, and represent a fun, yet powerful way to gain new perspective on relationships and challenges.

Tarot readings are particularly good for people who don’t know what kinds of questions to ask me; they just want some kind of guidance because they feel unsure of what’s coming or what to focus upon. Tarot also seems to benefit those people who have exceptionally good things coming their way, yet wonder if I might be “padding the reading” or “just saying what they want to hear.” The cards don’t lie. (Neither do I – but the cards seem that much more objective a medium for delivering good news.)

Please contact me if you’d like to sign up for this special. Offer valid if prepaid on or before May 31, 2016.

Timeline Tune-In and Tune-Up

 

This type of reading seems so important and helpful right now with so many people experiencing breaks from “normal” reality.

This hour session helps you to recognize your likely trajectory based on current energy patterns, intentions, and habits … and then, I search for the closest parallel reality versions of “you” with very slight differences that lead to more preferred (and more varied/greater opportunities for) positive outcomes. The scan and download are actually easier for me to do than to explain here, but if you’ve ever seen the movie “Sliding Doors” with its alternate reality story lines that intersect at certain points throughout the film, I’ll be scanning you for the stickiest intersection points.

I have found that these crossover points – i.e., parallel Universe bleed-throughs – can act like portals into alternate realities, preferred or not. That’s why you want to approach them consciously and respectfully, so that you recognize the power of the moment and choose wisely. The initial shift looks subtle, because if there weren’t enough similarities between the timelines/alternate realities, then the bleed-through moments wouldn’t happen so easily; however, in retrospect, such moments or decisions often seem “Fated.”

This reading gives you a heads up regarding the types of feelings, thoughts and experiences to watch for if you’re looking to sidestep onto a more positive timeline without needing to slog through linear time to get your desired life. In some cases, the preferred outcome even requires a sidestep, because the laws of cause and effect already set in motion on the current timeline are barreling you toward their “inevitable” end result. Fortunately, linear time’s not all it’s cracked up to be! These “timeline hops,” “portal points,” “reality jumps” – whatever you want to call them – are not only possible but powerful, and with awareness and practice, you can learn to surf such opportunities, charting your own course from current to next closest to preferred realities.

$133/hour if prepaid on or before 5/31/2016.

Special Topics in Reiki:

Deepening Your Experience of the Distance Healing Symbol

 

Saturday, June 11, 2016

10 a.m.-4 p.m.

Goshen, IN at Haus Am See (address given upon registration)


In response to many student requests, this is a reprise of a class series I taught in Reno/Tahoe and Sedona. In this series, we cover Special Topics in Reiki that we either don’t have time for or can only scratch the surface of during certification classes. This particular workshop focuses on “Deepening Your Experience of the Distance Healing Symbol.” We will discuss some of the more esoteric aspects of both distance healing and the Reiki symbol itself, unpacking layers upon layers of symbolism and function.
Many students find this symbol intimidating and difficult to remember or work with.
This class will explore and demonstrate why it’s worth the effort to learn and grow comfortable using this symbol. We will cover distance in space, as well as time, including, but not limited to past, future and parallel applications. Students will learn how this symbol can help you to “bend time,” empower intentions, heal very old trauma, and encode success in alternate versions of yourself/your reality. Those interested in previous lifetimes will also learn how this symbol can enhance intuitive access to past life experiences for easier reclamation of old gifts and healing of ancient traumas.
We will take an onsite break for lunch, which can include access to garden-fresh produce and a stroll through the gardens. Weather permitting, we can even eat outside on the porch or near the fountain and herb spiral.
$200 ($177 if prepaid by 5/11/16). Haus Am See offers a larger classroom than our home, but there has been a lot of interest over the years in these types of classes. In order to ensure your spot, I suggest early registration. Pre-requisite: must have Reiki Level 2 certification from me or another Reiki Master Teacher. Please contact me to sign up.

A Good Reminder for Our World

With all the private and public intensities and competing polarities right now, especially before Wednesday’s lunar eclipse, it feels right to post this link to an important 2014 post: El Mundo Bueno.

Remember to summon and receive “The Good Reality.” It’s always here for the experiencing. Magic and miracles abound whenever we open our eyes and hearts to recognize them.

Pam Younghans ~ North Point Astrology Journal, February 8-14, 2016

Some good news for people who’ve sensed (and moved with/through) the increasingly shifting energies: a little teaser from Pam Younghans’ full post, which you can click through to read on her site.
