Bella Luna & the Cosmic Tsunami

Now that we are beginning to feel the incoming pulse of massive energy, I wanted to pass along some Information that I downloaded recently in the privacy of my own wetware. Yes, it's an actual channel from Yours Truly! (lol)

~Do not discount the influence of the moon in the unfolding "Cosmic Tsunami," the significant pulse of energy that is scheduled to wash over and through Mother Gaia from now through the first week of August. She will be felt in three distinct phases:

Phase 1 (full to dark moon) is going to be analogous to scraping the barrel completely clean. ANY Shadow-energy or "stuck" place that is still present in one's system will be permanently removed. Whether you release it in Serenity or have it pried out of your grip as you're kicking and screaming - well, that's your choice. Be prepared for some massive first and/or third chakra upheavals for these two weeks, but only for two weeks! :-)

(Chakra 101: The first chakra is the energy node at the base of your spine; the third is the one at your solar plexus - the one that I'm clearing out, as I've mentioned previously.)

Phase 2 (new to full moon) is going to be analogous to filling the newly cleaned barrel completely up to the top with water. Do not be surprised if all of your chakras open very widely, particularly the fourth, sixth, and seventh ones. Authenticity and True Power are going to be the themes, as the next steps (yes, plural!) of your journey are going to be revealed! ALL shall not be revealed just yet, but many questions shall finally have answers. Huzzah!
(Chakra 101: The fourth chakra is the energy node at your heart, the sixth is the node at your third eye - between your fleshy eyeballs - and the seventh chakra is the node at the crown of your head.)

Phase 3 (full to dark moon) is going to be analogous to sweeping the water in the barrel with a fine net to fish out any detrius. Okay, so you're crystal clear and you've got tons of new support to travel in the direction you've chosen - which may very well be the one you've been moving in all along. ;-) Now is the time for a check-in: am I completely aligned with this journey? What really resonates within me right now? What needs to be released right now?

This phase also aligns perfectly with Lammas, the first of autumn's Harvest Festivals, which traditionally requires one to "sacrifice" that which is no longer of service within you in order to receive the fullness of Nature's Bounty.

Holler back with any questions, yo. :-)

Shedding the Sleepwalker's Skin

Call this "Third Chakra, Pre-Clearing." (Balboa Park, 7/09)

Whether I'm cutting out images from catalogs or snapping pics with my camera, every now and again I come across something that moves me, and I need to capture it. I might not know why at that moment, but it becomes the perfect image to use in the fullness of time.
The image above would be a good example. It spoke to me about a year ago, but it's only now that I understand the message...

The closer we've come to the "Cardinal Cross" alignment in the sky (an alignment formed by Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Pluto this weekend, lasting until the first week of August), the more antsy I've been. These last two weeks in particular have felt like a collective holding of breath, waiting for the massive surge of energy that is predicted to course through & by our planet, and all who inhabit her, as a result. Or as I tweeted recently: The whole Universe feels Void of Course and I feel like I'm experiencing a bout of Cosmic PMS! ;-)

Several of my friends say I wasn't too far off...
By degrees I've been brought low as of late, feeling various levels of doubt, frustration, anxiety, even incompetence and powerlessness. My first clue was in recognizing the last time I'd felt such "blah" energies was before I had embarked on my Journey of Spirit; in other words, when I still thought myself a muggle, to use JK Rowling's lovely terminology. :-) My second clue was in recognizing when my Indigo Diva was having a tantrum, insisting that life should be unfolding on HER terms, and feeling very rigid.
I realized: I am clearing out my third chakra, the energy node found at the solar plexus, connected with thoughts of individuality. This is where I hold all beliefs about My*Self; these are the Shadows that are being brought up for me to recognize and release.
A multi-step ritual spontaneously arose within me - I'm unfolding it one night at a time as we speak, with the next steps beginning to come together as I conclude this part of it.

In this time of surging energy and Waking Up, I find myself shedding the last vestiges of who I was...a Sleepwalker in the Nightmare of the Shadow-Matrix. Many others will be releasing these dregs as well; others will be at the beginning of the process, realizing that all the blood and thunder playing out around them is one Grand Illusion, and that Something Far Greater lies just beneath the surface. Many people are experiencing this awakening as a very rude one - this is a "necessary evil," if you will, for many people have been caught in the grips of the Nightmare and sleepwalking their way through life for a very long time.

The alarm clock is going off.
It's time to Wake Up - NOW!

tiny adventures, on a tuesday :-)

Seeking out treasure in the Golden State. @ Home, 6/10

No worries, I haven't forgotten my promise to show off my TAT's as I get 'em. ;-)
It's been a most interesting roller coaster as energies pulse and ebb within and around me...and under me as well. Felt an earthquake last night that broke some dynamic tension within me as well as within Grandmother Earth! More on that later...

To the first Adventure, which was a Civic one:
English, Spanish, Filipino, and Vietnamese, I think. @ Home, 6/10

Yea, I exercised my rights as an American Citizen and executed my civic duty by voting last Tuesday. They moved my polling place to the same block where I live, just across the street - which made it ridiculously easy to go and vote and made it completely absurd to transport myself there by car. So I was happy to hoof it. :-)
One question, though, am I the only one to scratch my head and ask, "What's wrong with this picture?" Viz...
What happened to "Separation of Church & State"? @ Home, 6/10
And yes, I think the "Happy Hour" advertisement is a bit amusing as well... ;-)

As you can tell, I took my camera along to record the journey. Didn't take any pix in the voting venue itself - that might have been rather gauche - but here's some eye candy for y'all:
Glorious Purple Bouganvillea. @ Home, 6/10

This particular Tuesday, I found myself drawn to explore a lovely site closer to home: Kit Carson Park, at the southern end of Escondido.
I love the symbolism of this open gate. Kit Carson Park, 6/10

Today was an exploratory mission, looking around and seeing what I could find, and what had changed.
What has changed: they've added a "golf frisbee" course in the park, for peeps to walk around and have some fun.
What I found: Power spots galore...
Massively cool meditation spot besides a network of groves. Kit Carson Park, 6/10

...and some trails "into the bush" that I didn't take this time. Next time, though, I'm going on a mini-walkabout. ;-)

I was also very relieved to find that a pair of ponds which had been drained in a recent missing person's case had been refilled, and were still extant. Again, I saved visiting & meditating at the ponds for later.
With the upcoming energy surge that's expected to bring radical & dynamic transformation throughout the world, I suspect there will be a lot of "laters" for me to choose from!
I feel much more grounded and centered already... :-)

Tiny Adventure Tuesday: Stone Nirvana!

As promised, today I connected with one of my fave co-conspirators & lovely Soul Sisters to visit the Natural History museum. Our mission: to visit the new gemstone exhibit there...Splendor? You Bet Your Bippy! (Balboa Park, 6/10)

I had heard that there might be a separate admission fee to see the exhibit, despite the fact that this was the NH museum's Free Tuesday. Happily, I was wrong, though the bit of money I took with me did come in handy.
The stones are installed in the "basement" of the museum, closest to Grandmother Earth, natch, from whence they've all come.

I can best sum up the experience in three words:
GODDESS!Beautiful Serpentine Slab. (6/10)

It was all SO delicious; I'll try to give you only a few highlights...
~A cache of opals in ironstone, from Australia. Very Primal Earth energy! Numerous images shown to us by the opals!
~A clear crystal quartz cluster that was the total opposite of the opals - very High Frequency Star energy! I could hear them singing!
~An iron meteor that had been sliced in half and polished. This energy was Something Totally Else!
~A picture of Selenite crystals from a cave in Mexico, so large people can STAND upon them! I got a major "hit" from just looking at the image!
~The jade. Oh Gods, the Honking Big JADE! Beautiful green, with the vibration of home. I got a bit verklempt as I tuned in and allowed its energy to flow through me. (Interestingly enough, it came from Northern California. Things to make me go hmm...)
~A massive cut and polished Smokey Quartz, which I think was 13,000 carats or something ridiculous like that. Do you know what Shadows I could exorcise with THAT bad boy! Pass the napkin, please, so I can wipe my drool off the case! (lol)
A nice chunk of Lepidolite. (6/10)

The bad news: the main exhibit prohibited flash photography; alas, I could not take any pix of the lovely things described above. :-(
The good news: there were some stones outside the main exhibit, so I was able to get some pix after all. Obviously. :-)
The best news: I asked how long the exhibit would be in the museum. The answer - "Oh don't worry, it'll be here for several years."
Did you say YEARS?!? :-D
My inner seven-year-old squealed and did a happy dance. ;-)
Raw Malachite. (6/10)

Oh, and the money I brought with me? Part of it went to grab a couple of kyanite stones, which were actually reasonably priced for my part of the world! Let's just say I paid about half as much at the museum as I would have elsewhere. They had some other stones available...which I could get for much cheaper in several metaphysical boutiques in my neck of the woods!

So, my stone-and-crystal-loving friends...should you happen to find yourself in the San Diego area at the beginning of a given month, if you have any affinity at all with the Stone People, GO to this exhibit on the first Tuesday of the month, when the Natural History museum is FREE!
I'll be happy to show you around, too... ;-)
