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!

Two Stories of Divine Intervention

For anyone who sometimes forgets what a miraculous world we live in … two stories from people I’m glad remain on this side of the veil.

Ann Kreilkamp shares her tale of Divine Intervention:

The SWERVE: or how, yesterday, I almost died

which reminded me of this story I posted in 2010:

Premonitions, Divine Intervention, Reiki and Kundalini Yoga saved her life

I’ve had a few close calls myself, but these two posts offer great affirmation of something bigger and benevolent. No matter what kind of situation you find yourself in, know that you and the Mystery are One. Blessed Be!

Spine Health and Human Evolution

Today we have a long intro by me to a guest blog post from the wonderful folks at Wussow Chiropractic in Madison. This will be the first in a series giving more attention to the spine, because I keep having clients and Lightworker friends who’ve been experiencing the radically shifting energies on Earth via spinal injuries.

In my own case, I had hurt my spine many, many times before and since my 1998 car accident; however, I always managed to keep things bearable by practicing yoga. This past summer I threw out my sacrum by tossing 40 pound buckets of water as though they were quart sized mason jars. I’ve always used mental and spiritual energy to move heavier things than my 111 or so pounds would justify, but in my excitement about gardening this summer, I forgot to employ the usual Runes. What resulted was a nearly crippling sacrum injury that –unlike all my earlier back accidents –failed to “heal on its own.” As the pain gradually subsided with the help of selenite (the crystal “chiropractor”), I found myself experiencing all sorts of bizarre, seemingly unrelated symptoms in other bodily systems.

I mentioned this over tea to my good friend Dr. Ingrid Recnik, who happens to be a chiropractor. She put down her cup and said, “Let me feel your spine for a second.” She asked me a series of specific questions regarding very troubling health issues I had not yet mentioned to her. When I nodded yes to all of them, she explained how the specific vertebrae that were out corresponded to physical manifestations in those systems. My nerve function was compromised. As severe as the symptoms had been, the idea that they came from my spine was actually a relief, even though they indicated I might need external help recovering on the physical level. My intuitive ability to self-treat had served me well, but I had spent months chasing symptoms, some of them quite scary if I ever let myself ponder their implications. Like most people, I find it much easier to be Medical Intuitive for others than for myself.

Once I got to Wussow Chiropractic, my series of x-rays shocked everyone so much that I gained a new respect for the power of raw foods and energy healing. My spine looked like a train wreck, twisted all over the place and the sacral area had two vertebrae shoved a spine and a half width further to the right. Obviously, the condition of my spine did not stem from this single summer injury. Ingrid, who had known me socially as a vibrant, hiking, gardening, energetic person filled with vitality, could not believe the x-rays’ severity. “It’s a good thing you found a raw food diet years ago,” she said, “because your digestive nerves have been under massive stress since your car accident.”

She proceeded to go through my x-rays vertebra by vertebra and describe all the bizarre little symptoms that I’ve spent nearly 14 years circumventing, mentally shifting, treating with herbs, Reiki, Runes and visualization. “Most people with this spine would not be functioning anywhere near your level,” she said. “Frankly, I’m shocked. This wasn’t an ‘accident’ this summer. It was your spine crying out for alignment before your neck and back created a permanently arthritic condition.” Recognizing the intensity of my compromised spine created a wave of self-compassion as I realized that so many sensitivities and rotating pains had stemmed from the fact that doctors chose to treat my brain injury rather than my neck or back. It also made me realize just how many miracles flow through my life. I’ve not only recovered from a supposedly permanent brain injury, but I’ve also managed to thrive in the face of a severely debilitated spine.

Ingrid’s gentle way, the fact that I trust her as a dear friend, and a new found understanding that I didn’t need to live so far out of my body in order to enjoy life, have brought more groundedness and joy than I imagined possible in human form. Don’t get me wrong –I have always lived a magical life. It’s just that I needed to live a magical life in order to survive. Going through life disconnected from Source resulted in such debilitating pain and disabling symptoms that I couldn’t function at all. By contrast, the magical, meditative, intuitive and prayerful life exploded with winks from the Divine and the ability to inspire and help others heal themselves. Chiropractic has dramatically improved the quality of my life in so many ways, not least of which is realizing that the base line of chronic pain I’ve had since 1998 –to which I had grown so accustomed as not to notice it much until it disappeared– was actually optional. With proper alignment, more life force could flow through me, and I finally recognized that for me, yoga just wasn’t cutting it. I needed to build a new foundation from the ground up.

As a Medical Intuitive, I have now seen this sort of “surprise back injury” in so many Lightworkers since my own summer “accident.” In each case, the clients discovered they had had a lifetime of severe injuries that they’d managed to float above until this 2011 one just leveled them, forcing rest and treatment. Whenever I see patterns like this, the Medical Intuitive in me gets curious. I asked my crew of guides to explain, and they indicated that so much additional Light and Life Force Energy was coming to Earth that Lightworkers needed to “get in alignment” in order to accommodate it. When less energy was flowing, the little twists and turns of the spine didn’t matter so much, but when massive amounts of Light wanted to course through Awakening humans, the force would blow out anything in its way.

This made sense, since the night before I’d hurt my back this summer, I physically felt (and saw with my inner eye) the brightest light I’ve ever seen enter my crown, flow down my spine and then blast out my sacrum, shooting into the wall behind me. The next day, the exit point blew out and demanded rest. The months that followed provided the most introspection and core healing I’ve needed to embrace since my 1998 car accident, and the healing process has catapulted me forward in ways I’m just now beginning to recognize.

I intend to write more about spine health and human evolution, but for now I’d like to share some tips from Wussow Chiropractic about how to protect your spine in the winter. Yes, my injury has required that I heal on deeper levels, but ideally, we can be proactive about caring for our spine! At this time of increased energy flooding the planet, the more in alignment our physical bodies and kundalini channels are, the easier our Ascension will be. Until next time, here are Wussow Chiropractic‘s tips:

Snow Shoveling Safety Tips

Considering the average shovelful of snow weighs 5-10 pounds, the average driveway contains hundreds of pounds of snow. Typically, the arms, shoulders and back get sore and may occasionally feel pain.

The cold air invigorates most people into action; however, the same cold air can numb the sensations of pain and fatigue. Unfortunately, pain is a sign that an injury has occurred or that mechanically, you are doing something wrong in shoveling the snow (or that you should have hired the neighbor kid).

There is a right way and a wrong way to shovel snow – paying attention to your technique can make a big difference in how you feel the next day. As with any project, the prep work is the most important. The following are some tips on how to shovel smarter.

* Be Prepared. Spray your shovel with Teflon so the snow will not stick to it. The more snow that stays on the shovel, the heavier it gets and the more chance for injury.

* Do a warm-up first. A tight, stiff body is asking for injury. A few minutes of stretching can save you a lot of pain later. When you are shoveling, don’t forget to breathe. Holding your breath makes you tight and stiff.

* Layer your clothing. Layered clothing will keep your muscles warm and flexible. You can shed a layer if you get too hot. Make sure you wear gloves that cover your wrists; if your wrists get cold, your fingers, hands and arms will be cold too.

* Wear the right shoes. Choose shoes with plenty of cushioning in the soles to absorb the
impact of walking on hard, frozen ground. Make sure they have good traction so you don’t slip. A slip is all it takes to create an injury that will take you out of the game.

* Use the right shovel. Your shovel should be about chest high on you, allowing you to keep your back straight when lifting. A shovel with a short staff forces you to bend more to lift the load. A too-tall shovel makes the weight heavier at the end. (Note: Save your money-don’t buy a fancy ergonomic shovel; studies have shown that in some models, the hook end is too deep. Twisting to unload a shovelful of snow with this tool may hurt your wrists.) Also keep one hand close to the base of the shovel to balance weight and lessen the strain on your back.

* Timing is everything. Listen to the weather forecasts so you can shovel in ideal conditions. If possible, wait until the afternoon to shovel. Many disc injuries occur in the morning when there is increased fluid pressure in the disc because your body had been at rest all night. Also, don’t let those big snowfalls accumulate. It is far easier to shovel two or three times then one huge heavy mess.

* Drink lots of water. Drinking water frequently throughout the day helps to keep muscles and body hydrated. Be careful with hot drinks like coffee and hot chocolate. They contain caffeine, which has a dehydrating effect and adds even more stress to the body.

* Use proper posture. When you do shovel, bend your knees and keep your back straight while lifting with your legs. Push the snow straight ahead; don’t try to throw it. Walk it to the snow bank. Try to shovel forward to avoid sudden twists of the torso and reduce strain on the back. Using a scissors stance works best. Put the right foot forward for a few minutes then the left foot.

* Take your time. Working too hard, too fast is an easy way to strain muscles. Take frequent breaks. Shovel for 5 or 10 then take a 2 minute rest break.

* Get adjusted. Chiropractic care will help keep your back flexible and minimize the chance for injury. If you do overdo, the adjustments will help get you back on track quicker and prevent further injury.

Many thanks to Wussow Chiropractic for all their wonderful care and for helping so many people, Lightworkers included, realign with the amazing energies of these times.

5 Things I Love Right Now

When I love something, I really love it in that moment! Here’s what I’ve been loving lately:

1) Seed Restaurant in Santa Rosa, CA. Readers of this blog know I love Cafe Gratitude, but not everyone knows how much I love this little gem in the heart of Sonoma County. Seed serves up 100% vegan and a mostly raw menu 6 days per week, including a Sunday Brunch, which I have yet to try.

I’ll be interviewing chef/owner Jerri Hastey very soon for this blog because I just love how she’s fostered a real sense of community and homespun charm in the restaurant and (my favorite) Seed On the Go. I must confess that I order so often, they actually recognize my voice whenever I call. For a quick “BBQ Cheez Burger,” “Toona Sandwich” or “Arame Salad,” you really can’t beat Seed, and I love meeting friends or colleagues there for some business, fun and raw chocolate caramel pie, which brings me to number …

2) Cacao. I have an on-again-off-again relationship with this little pod of bliss. Contrary to impressions gleaned from reading Schizandra and the Gates of Mu I do not actually live on cacao and cacao alone. Frauke is a character, and while I did, ahem, research cacao extensively in preparation for her cacao addiction in book 1, I don’t really spend my days dreaming of giant cacao pods. In fact, if I’m not in writing mode, I can’t even stand cacao. It just doesn’t agree with me. However, I am back in fiction writing mode again after a brief hiatus, and so my cacao consumption has resurged — sometimes (gasp!) with the decadent addition of kombucha. If you want to know how I cranked out three books in one year, this potent combo had at least a partial role.

Is cacao the healthiest, purest of raw foods? Nope (although it does have a ton of antioxidants and a lot of iron and magnesium). Will it burn out my adrenals? Yeah, it does seem to do that if I’m not channeling some massive creative energy along with the cacao. I find this pretty common, actually, since cacao is a spiritual food. If used simply as candy it eventually stops working or worse, turns around and bites you. When used intentionally and in vibrational harmony, though? Mmmm, for me, it’s bliss … which brings me to number …

3) Kundalini Yoga. I love this stuff! If you think of yoga as stationary or slow, kundalini yoga will blow those preconceptions right out of your downward dog. Also known as the Raj or King of Yogas, kundalini yoga is where it all began. All the current schools of yoga originated from asanas (postures), exercises, mudras (yoga for the hands) and mantras (chants) found in kundalini yoga. Folks, this stuff works fast. So fast, in fact, that you can easily abuse it or cause the energy to rise too quickly.

I myself have been known to engage in a wee bit too much kundalini yoga. Even a few minutes raises the vibration into such a state of bliss that I find myself wanting to do kundalini yoga multiple times per day, sometimes for hours. I’m known as “The Lazy Raw Foodist” for a reason, so this is not typical behavior with regard to exercise. I just love the bliss factor. I also love that kundalini yoga works so fast to manifest intentions. It’s both active and highly meditative.

An example: I am currently nursing a sore wrist that arose from, um, too much kundalini yoga. Way too many hand flaps and liver maneuvers. My body was super-toned and my brain felt incredible until my right wrist said, “OK, you need to take a break.” When I said, “No way, I’m having too much fun here,” my wrist responded with “Fine, here’s some tendonitis. It is time to take a break.”

For awhile, I could barely type and this might have seemed like a negative situation considering I had set as my intention the faster creation of book 2 (Schizandra and the Peruvian Jaguar). I’ve overdone kundalini yoga enough in the past to know that the benefits continue to reveal themselves even beyond the classes, though, and sure enough, my intention manifested very fast. The forced computer break caused me to reevaluate how much time I spend answering emails. Turns out my “justified” time away freed up about 12 hours per week I was spending on emails. 12 hours of writing time that now gets funneled back into the creation of book 2.

Additionally, the forced time away from the computer allowed me to realize that I had been barking up the wrong tree with the time frame and plot for book 2. A few potent meditation sessions and a conversation with my friend Tim (who helped inspire the character Tom Brown in the Schizandra Series) led to a very speedy download of exactly what I’d sensed was missing. I visited my acupuncturist with whom I always have fascinating discussions, and my wrist felt good to go just at the moment I had the proper focus to continue. I really sense that this kundalini “gluttony” triggered exactly what I needed to bring my visions into reality — shaking out any blocks and blissfully moving me to the next level. In the absense of the physical exercises, I’ve returned to my old bliss standby, number …

4) Krishna Das. I talk about sacred chants a lot, so I won’t go into too much detail here. Suffice to say that I never tire of “Door of Faith.” I am also one of those odd birds who actually did memorize the entire 42-verse Hanuman Chaleesa from “Flow of Grace,” partly because I wanted to, and mostly because I’ve listened to it so many times that my mind now sings along.

Some people do not like the intense maleness of Krishna Das’ voice. Personally, I find it grounding. A few minutes of any album pulls me immediately into my heart. If my brain feels overloaded, zapped by fluorescent lights or spastically mental, I can pop in “Door of Faith” and feel all that energy tumble into my heart and expand with the very first Om … all of which brings me to number …

5) Everyone and Everything. That’s right, I am feeling the love for everyone and everything. I always do, but lately that love has felt both more refined and more intense. I feel such gratitude for all my clients, my husband, my friends, family (both blood relatives and soul mates), and for this vast universe that moves in, around and through us.

I love helping people dance their cosmic dance and bring that down into 3D steps — joyful twists & leaps & turns like a mazurka. I love my job! I love that so many people have joined in their intentions to manifest a film version of Schizandra and the Gates of Mu. I love that more and more people realize how much we can each accomplish when we recognize ourselves as part of a bigger whole … and also as the whole itself. I love that all mystics speak the same language, and I love that we are moving to a world of greater connection, more immediacy, and a chance to vibrate as one conscious living, breathing universe.

And I love Twitter. I work from home and until I joined Twitter I never realized how much I missed those little small talk moments at the water cooler or the quick hello on the way to the bathroom or to a meeting. For me, Twitter has provided that social snippet during long days of writing, or a welcome lightness between intense sessions.

So, yeah, I’m feelin’ the love … and before anyone rolls their eyes and asks just how much cacao I’ve actually had today:

Yes, I ate at Seed with Shana Dean. And yes, I ate a chocolate caramel pie, and yes, it was total bliss. But I was already feeling this way anyway. I’m sending lots of love to everyone and everything. As Joni Mitchell sings, “We are stardust. / We are golden / And we’ve got to get ourselves / Back to the garden.” It’s really happening, folks! Peace.
