Can Your Love Prevent Earthquakes? Join Us on Solstice to Heal Self, Others & Earth Mama

Dear Community,

I recently learned from Clan Mother Hua Anwa, a Metis elder, that San Francisco Bay Area First Nation peoples believe that when we amp up the harmony among us, we can prevent earthquakes.

The esoteric story here revolves around the origin of the mountains down the Pacific coast. According to this coded information, the mountains from Shasta southward were formed above the waters when Creator asked Eagle Man to gather the Seven Turtle Brothers. Despite the fact that the Brothers did not get along and tended to argue, Creator had them line up head to toe, and onto them brought all the plants and creatures, including humans. We Two-Leggeds were instructed always to be calm and at peace. One day, two hunters begin to argue over who owned the spoils of the hunt, eventually drawing the entire community into the conflict. Despite the warnings of the Medicine Man to get along, bad feelings split the community. The land began to quake, and the people became afraid. The Medicine Man said that human discord makes the Seven Turtle Brothers who don’t get along start arguing.

According to Clan Mother Hua, these Turtle Borthers, these Mountains, are sentinels for us. So we must keep them happy, well tended, and listened to. We ourselves must be in harmony. C’mon people now! Smile on each other. Everybody get together, try to love one another on our Seven Sisters Solstice Healing Evening 2013, slated for Dec. 20. Info below. This will be an opportunity to channel your worries into energies for your own healing, and the healing of those you love, those you don’t know, and Earth Herself. What better way to spend this beautiful season of quiet reflection and inner growth? 

Seven Sisters Solstice Healing Evening 2013

Love the Land You’re With: Tips for Connecting in a Sacred Way

I love poet Gary Snyder’s powerful call: “[F]or Americans, the real work is becoming native to North America… coming to understand we really live here, that this is really the continent we’re on and that our loyalties are here, to these mountains and rivers, to these plant zones, to these creatures.” The same applies wherever you are in the world, as I know my readers come from and live all over. The bottom line is: Love the land you’re with. Love her fiercely.

Transplants to other places sometimes feel guilty: Do we have a right to make a sacred connection with the land if we are basically colonizers in one way or another, or if our ancestors holocausted the First Peoples? The answer is: We must. No time to waste, folks, and Clan Mother and Metis elder Hua Anwa agrees. She and other indigenous peoples speaking at the recent conference Sacred Mountains of the Bay Area said that it’s high time we all recognized that “the same red blood“ flows through our veins, and that Mama Earth and her creatures, waters, features, trees, and plants need us to “awaken” them once more, regardless of our race or ethnicity. This means we need to restore the reciprocal loop of love between us humans, these Earth elements, and their accompanying elementals ­–– the unseen spirits residing around and within, which include ancestors who have been here before us.

Hearing the teachings of Hua was a real affirmation of the work I have been doing both independently and with the Gaia Grid Activation Program I’m in the midst of teaching this fall with Theresa Dintino out at Mt. Burdell, Ring Mountain, and the Redwoods of West Marin.

How To Create a Sacred Relationship with the Land

Here are some tips for establishing a bond with the land near where you live:

 • Start with your own backyard, and apply the suggestions below. Hua reminds us that “every place is sacred.”

 • By foot, explore new mountains, hills, forests, lakes, ocean sides, or other earth areas near where you live. Feel which places call to you. When you find a place you like, keep returning. Make a commitment to visit it at least once a month.

Ask permission to enter any given place from what you feel is the “guardian” spirit of the place –– you’ll instinctively sense where it resides. What’s important is your respectful intention.

State your intention for being there –– to love the place, say prayers, hear what it has to say, be of service, heal the land, honor the local ancestors, make amends for transgressions to the First Peoples, etc.

Bring offerings to that guardian and the spirits of the land each time you come: libations of milk, honey, water, wine, or hibiscus tea; natural edibles like nuts, dried or fresh fruit, seeds. Elemental creatures (the Fairy and Fae folk) like shiny metals & coins; use with care so as not to pollute.

Bring tobacco offerings. According to Hua Anwa, Tobacco Spirit agreed to be the messenger to Great Spirit for prayers. Take a small handful of loose tobacco (in the U.S., Natural American Spirit is a great brand; I like the organic kind in the red package, available anywhere they sell cigarettes), breathe your prayer into it, and leave it on the land, under a tree, scattered in the water, and so forth.

Sit and feel your love for the place. That’s it. Just feel the appreciation you have for the beauty of the landscape, the trees, the plants and animals. Let Earth Mother and the visible and invisible elements feel your affection.

Listen for messages. Get quiet and see if you can receive information –– and healing –– for yourself, others, Mama Earth, etc.

Leave the place better than you found it through your offerings, spontaneously created songs to the land, prayers for the Earth –– and maybe even by picking up some trash.

Stay Tuned for More Earth Connecting thru Seven Sisters

I will be offering another short program on connecting with the Earth this coming winter. Keep your eyes on our emails. I also offer private mentoring in this regard; feel free to contact me here for a reduced rate first-time session.

Advice for Navigating a Personal Descent

If you live on planet earth, chances are you’ve been to hell at least a few times. What particular halls do you traverse in your own underworld? Childhood abuse? Abandonment? Addiction? Loss? Illness? Depression? Breakup or divorce? Financial trouble? Death of a loved one? A suffering child? Psychological vulnerabilities? It may be of comfort to know that even the gods must make the journey to the Great Below. Witness Persephone. Dionysus. Orpheus. Inanna. Jesus. It also may help to know that there are codes and clues from their stories as to how to handle a life descent. transform-your-hell-fb-share2 I’m talking here in particular about the ancient story known as the Descent of Inanna. It chronicles what happens to this great Sumerian goddess of heaven when she decides to visit her sister Ereshkigal in the underworld. Her story offers guidance for how to Go Down Under with wisdom, whether your descent has been a lifelong one or is precipitated by a shock. Here are just three insights:

1)   Tie your tether: Inanna told her trusted servant Ninshubur that she was about to make her trip, and asked her to sound the call to helpers if she did not return in three days. This calling out for support –– to friends, helpful family members, therapists –– is critical when you feel yourself slipping.

2)   Surrender: Inanna made her descent more difficult by resisting the stripping process as she descended the rungs of hell. Don’t resist. Surrender to what is happening.

3)   Embrace radical self-compassion: In the bowels of hell, Ereshkigal moans out in pain and is mirrored compassionately by the beings sent to help retrieve Inanna. Through this compassion, Ereshkigal begins the process of Inanna’s ascent back to the light. Witness your own pain in the dark. Be tender to it. Love your brokenness. This is the start of the journey back up.

Incredible Links Between Miwok Wisdom and Our Intuited Information… Plus –– a Pleiadian Connection?

In being guided to do research after consulting spirits of the land of Marin County, CA, Theresa Dintino and I have learned that key pieces of ancient knowledge from the original Hukuíko people (Coast Miwok) who lived here correspond precisely with the information we have been receiving intuitively about portals, star and elemental beings, and other phenomena.

This tells us that energies are gathering and permission is being granted for us to offer the Gaia Grid Activation Program, which starts this Sat, Sept 14 on the land of the Hukuíko. We do so with respect and honoring of the traditional peoples and ancestors of this place. This post is intended to beckon ever more loudly, then, to those who are feeling called to join us in this restorative energetic work. For more information, visit here

Re-tending Portals to Other Realms

Here are some of the intriguing bits we have discovered. The Hukuíko (that is the phonetic pronunciation of the name the original peoples in Marin called themselves) have always held a conception of the sky as a dome-shaped canopy resting on the earth, with holes north, south, east, and west, which continually and rapidly open and close. This corresponds with what we have been receiving about “portals” – energy vortexes between the earth and other realms.

We have been “hearing” that these and other portals are needing human attention because the communication with them has been severed. We have learned of a Hukuíko belief that “one man” (or possibly several), supernatural in nature, watches over the cardinal directions, and we have intuited that the connection with him/them needs to be reestablished. We are also receiving information that there are many portals, including those on the major mountains of the area, and that they are once again wanting human tending with integrity.

The Hukuíko also see a “Northern Hole” in the sky as a gateway that is always opening and closing with great rapidity –– thus, again, a portal. They consider it to be “on the other side of the sky.” This corresponds with what I recognize from my research is the ancient Greek conception of Hyperborea (from huper, beyond, and boreas, north or north wind). This was a northernmost region –– so far north that it was really off planet, that is, in the astral plane –– whence came and went various gods and also priestesses who founded oracle sites like those at Delphi, Dodona, and Delos. According to geomancer Richard Leviton, the Hyperboreans referred to the Pleiades.

FIRST PEOPLES –– Pleiades?

So, it seems, here in blessed Marin, just as Theresa and I have been intuiting, the traditional peoples have also understood that there are earth/sky portals to other realms. And while the Pleiades do not feature largely in the extant local lore about the Hukuíko, they may well be implied here. For we do see in the Hukuíko vocabulary the term for a “cluster of eight stars,” which is maienko. The term literally means “people of the maien,” and maien was a matriarchal elder leader in a village. While anthropologists have not been able to determine which constellation maienko is referring to, this meaning would correspond with the notion of the Pleiades as being generally conceived of as seven powerful sisters, matriarchs themselves. The number of stars seen with the naked eye in the Pleiadian cluster ranges from seven to thirteen, so clearly we are in the ballpark here.

Furthermore, the Hukuíko also hold a belief that “people” were present “on top of or beyond the sky.” Certainly this corresponds with my research into worldwide beliefs that the earth was seeded or populated by Star Beings from locations such as the Pleiades. Indeed, we further learned that the Hukuíko believe in the existence of a FIRST PEOPLE who did not look like Indians of today, but were their somewhat supernatural ancestors. They were “transformed” into animals, trees, rocks, stars, and other celestial bodies and forces.

In Greece, we find several stories of great early ancestors of humanity being transformed into such things, as well. In particular, as I write in my book The Cult of Divine Birth in Ancient Greece, there is the story of the “Seven Sisters” of the Pleiades, who were considered virgin mothers of the large portion of humanity. For their role in this regard, they were “transformed” into the Pleiades star cluster. Thus, once again, the correspondences between local Northern California spiritual beliefs and worldwide concepts of humanity’s connection with the Star Nations are amazing.

Many traditional peoples from the Americas have foundational stories with the Pleiades, in particular, including the Cherokee, Lakota, Blackfeet, and many others. Even in the substratum of contemporary Western culture we see beliefs in FIRST PEOPLES known as the Atlantians and Lemurians. There are hints in the Greek and other literature that their civilizations were created by the Pleiades.

Dolphins = FIRST PEOPLES?

What is particularly interesting is that back in early 2013, well before I began learning these things about the Hukuíko, I directly received information that the Lemurians hailed from the Pleiades and had “transformed” into dolphins when their great continent disappeared… This is why dolphins are particularly sacred and intelligent beings, and why they are in a special communication with humanity. So it was a great affirmation to see this concept reflected in the traditional wisdom of the Hukuíko, on whose homeland I have dwelt since coming to live in Marin County a decade ago.

Ready for the Gaia Grid Activation Program?

Are you intrigued, moved, and called by this information? Then join us in this great exploration! As part of the Gaia Grid Activation Program 2013, you will be part of a wave of people who are understanding that your spirits and intelligence are needed now to help remedy the energetic decimation of this region. Starting Sept. 14, Theresa Dintino and I will be offering four daylongs on the land in Marin. We will teach you how to take up posts at the ancient portals to DO THE WORK, which involves deep spiritual attunement with elemental spirits and the Star Nations so that we may sync up the local energetic grid once again. The purpose of restoring the grid is to help raise the energetic vibration of the region – which will lead to people functioning at a higher level of consciousness and eventually dwelling with a greater sense of well-being. Fulfill your destiny as a world server! For more information about the Gaia Grid Activation Program 2013, visit here

My Oracle Work with a Redwood

In previous posts and on my Facebook video I’ve noted that you can sit at trees to receive personal guidance, prophecy, and hidden histories about the world and cosmos. I offer here some messages I have received while working with a Grandmother Redwood tree with whom I am developing a relationship. The World Tree refers to the oldest original tree on the planet. It was used as a place where people could obtain great information, greater than when sitting by themselves. Actually, there were a number of World Trees at different locations on the planet. The cutting down of the World Trees represented the severing of Gaia’s umbilical cord to the Star Nations, for the tree is a bridge, a pathway, a connector to the wisdom from the galaxies from which human consciousness hails. That severing left humanity stranded and vulnerable. The tree in the film Avatar around which the virtual beings communed is a remembrance of human’s use of the World Tree. Remember.

Redwood Slaughter + Genocide = Severing of Humanity

The Grandmother Redwoods have been around for millions of years, since Earth first had life (go see the petrified Redwood forest in Calistoga for proof). They were decimated in a very short period of time – within one generation. That slaughter corresponded with the genocide of the First Peoples of the North American continent. That unfortunate correspondence of events spelled the loss of important planetary information streams and medicine, and even further severing of humanity from Star Wisdom. This was part of a predatory plan on the part of certain energies who got a toehold here. It’s important not to dwell on that unpleasant possibility, but rather to get busy.

It’s time for everyone to awaken and speak with the Redwoods again, particularly the Old Growth Trees –– and that includes the spirits of those whose stumps can still be seen, because the spirits of those trees are still there, as my colleague Theresa Dintino reminds me. The First Peoples of California understood that Redwoods were magical beings. Julia Butterfly Hill must have known this on some level, too. She risked her life and endured hardship to save them.

Redwoods contain not only their own spirits, but also those of other beings for whom they are willing to serve as a home or haven. In the Grandmother with whom I work, for example, are spirits of at least one Native American chief who fled there during the holocaust of the First Peoples of the region to remain a sentinel. Also embedded is the spirit of a cow, who stands as a witness to the continual cow slaughter occurring on local ranches. There are numerous other elemental beings dwelling within, as well. In many cases, these beings can be seen, as their image may appear in the bark and first layers of the tree. It’s just as those magical storybooks depict…

Theresa Dintino has also received the message that those who develop a psychic relationship with a tree become her “eyes and ears” so that she can learn more about what is going on presently upon the earth and offer further help to humanity. This is why developing a relationship with a tree is important. There is a reciprocal serving that can happen. Sit at a Redwood – or any tree – listen, and heed.

Are You Called to Our Gaia Grid Activation Program?

We’re in the final enrollment week of Seven Sisters Mystery School’s Gaia Grid Activation Program. Part of our work will be to develop oracular relationships with trees: Redwoods, Bays, and Oaks of the SF Bay region. Join diviner Theresa Dintino and me starting Sept. 14 for four daylongs on the land in Marin. Our intention is to take up posts at the ancient portals left by indigenous peoples whose populations were greatly reduced by disease, murder, or starvation as early as 100 years ago. The land needs us to do this work, which involves deep spiritual attunement with elemental spirits and the Star Nations so that we may sync up the local energetic grid once again. This program is preparing us for an activation of the grid on the seven major mountains of the Bay Area when the time is right. The purpose of restoring the grid is to help raise the energetic vibration of the region – which will lead to people functioning at a higher level of consciousness and eventually dwelling with a greater sense of well-being.

Using Trees as Oracles: Get Vertical, Get Quiet, Get in Touch

Priestesses, Authentic Priests & World Servers: There is a long tradition of women and men sitting at trees – particularly large Grandmothers – to obtain oracular information. Think the prophetesses of Dodona at the Great Oak, Abraham at the Terebinth, St. Anne at the Laurel, Buddha at the Bodhi. Eve at the Apple. I have been working with several, particularly one Grandmother Redwood I was introduced to by a friend. Anyone can do this practice, and it is encouraged by Gaia herself, especially now in these times of continued environmental decimation.

Find an old spectacular tree.

The larger and gnarlier, the better. She should impress you in some way, for she is old and wise. Make offerings to her at her base: libations like milk, honey, water, wine, or small food substances like nuts and fruits. Hibiscus tea also – its red recalling (menstrual) blood but being consummately ethical. To see a one-minute video of me describing this process, visit here 

Merge with the Tree

Sit with your back against her trunk. Spend some time in silence, breathing, feeling into her. Open your awareness. Feel your admiration for her and for the beauty of the natural world around you. Let that love flow forth, bathing you in its energy. You are creating a reciprocal communication pathway with nature and the elemental realms in this way. At some point, see yourself merging with the Grandmother tree. Allow yourself to enter her consciousness and her to enter yours. Sense how she experiences the world differently from you. Let the impressions filter into you –– about her and all she has to tell you.

Trees are conduits for the consciousness of Gaia as well as the Star Nations. They offer you information on many levels: personal, planetary, astral. If you go with a friend, compare notes. Write down or record what is received. Share it with others. Return again and again. Developing a relationship with a tree is like developing a relationship with a human. It grows over time. It brings joy and comfort. But unlike humans, trees are always unconditional.

Are You Called to Our Gaia Grid Activation Program?

A reminder that this fall, Seven Sisters Mystery School will offer the Gaia Grid Activation Program in part to work intuitively/oracularly with trees. Join diviner Theresa Dintino and me starting Sept. 14 for four daylongs on the land in Marin. Our intention is to take up posts at the ancient portals left by indigenous peoples whose populations were greatly reduced by disease, murder, or starvation as early as 100 years ago.

What Exactly IS the Gaia Grid? Time to Get Busy Restoring the World “Intra”Net

Many folks are receiving information about “grids” nowadays, particularly as they surround and form part of the Earth. What is a grid? You already know. But just to tweak your memory, this is the energetic matrix that connects every single thing, both physical and etheric, on the planet. There are grids for every landform (e.g., mountains, canyons, rivers), every species, every physical organ of the body, every chakra, every thought form, every emotion, and so forth.

Everything is connected in its own grid, which allows for communication among things within it across great distances. Every grid is also interconnected with the other grids in a vast, elegant, massive web. Talk about a tapestry! According to esoteric information, when our grid was whole, the Earth used to be an actual Eden. My sources tell us it is time for us to restore the energy grids around the planet so that we may reestablish this high-level matrix once again.

Eden: Not Just a Fantasy

What is Eden? A realm of 5th Dimensional (and beyond) consciousness in which humans are telepathically and empathically connected with all beings. A realm in which animals and humans dwell together in peace because humans have the right frequency so as not to make animals afraid of them. A realm of incredible bio-diversity, abundance, and human creativity. Eden was once the school for the advanced training of souls who wanted to incarnate into this particular material realm. Some of us have memories or a sense of the ancient civilization of Lemuria, which exemplified this.

When did Eden begin to fall? The moment the first man felled a tree without its permission, then killed an animal for food without its permission. Why did Eden begin to fall? Entities who get their own “food” from suffering (yes, there are many throughout the dimensions) got a claw-hold into the grid and began to insert negative thought forms and directives (AKA “programs”) into the once air-tight protective sheath surrounding the earth.

The ozone hole is child’s play, I am told, compared to the Swiss cheesing of the energetic grid caused by the downward spiral of the felling of forests, the decimation of species, and other crimes against Gaia. Over urban areas the grid is thinnest – or non-existent depending on the degree of denuding that has happened there. Hence the great suffering in cities. Unfortunately, some layers of the grid are severely weakened due to the disappearance of natural species. The answer will not be to create hybrid creatures through genetic manipulation, however. Beware.

Are You Called to Our Gaia Grid Activation Program?

This information is an invitation for us to GET BUSY. Be a busy bee. That means working intuitively/oracularly to discern more about the situation and its remedies. It also means joining and amplifying that knowledge in communities so we may become restorers and tenders of the Gaia Grid as a whole once more.

It means working with the land directly, wherever you live, to serve as a transmitter of energies of love and information from the other realms so as to restore the gridding and open local energy portals. Yes, there are vortices and portals to other dimensions, which have been left dormant or were deliberately closed so as to protect them from misuse.

Toward this end, I’m joining with diviner Theresa Dintino to offer the Gaia Grid Activation Program in the San Francisco Bay Area starting Sept. 14 and running through early December. This will take us out on the land in Marin so that we may take up posts left by indigenous peoples whose populations were greatly reduced by disease, murder, or starvation as recently as 100 years ago. The land needs us to do this work, which involves deep spiritual attunement with elemental spirits and the Star Nations so that we may sync up the local grid once again.

This program is preparing us for an activation of the grid on the seven major mountains of the Bay Area when the time is right. The purpose of restoring the grid is to help raise the energetic vibration of the region – which will lead to people functioning at a higher level of consciousness and eventually dwelling with a greater sense of well-being. From this arises an upswelling that will create a positive energetic spiral moving us in the direction of Eden.

As more people around the world do this work, the Edens will converge, and at some point the entire Gaia Grid will snap back into place and propel us into a higher dimension. Let’s all join in manifesting that probable reality. For more information about the Gaia Grid Activation Program 2013, visit here. Please also feel free to contact me here. See you in Eden!

Delphi Reactivates! Awaken, Sacred Ones!

The ancient oracular center at Delphi, Greece, is still available as a portal for communication with other realms of consciousness. That portal is now becoming active again in an unprecedented way since its official closure in 381 A.D. Why should anyone care? Most of use would agree that our planet could use some high-level guidance righ1t about now. Providing counsel to king and paupers alike has long been the role of this oracle, where for thousands of years priestesses channeled the wisdom of the gods. Read More…

How to Restore Your Virginity

And What IS Virginity, Anyway?

Dear Sacred Community,

Earlier this month I wrote about the importance of women ritually “restoring their virginity.” The post created an avalanche of responses, mostly by appreciative women who understood the profound meaning of this womb clearing process. Before I talk about one way to do it, let me address a fundamental question: What is virginity, anyway? Some women get triggered by the “V” word because of its old associations with control of women’s sexuality and repression of erotic feeling.

I talk about the sacred meaning of virginity and its connection with priestessing of a high order in my book The Cult of Divine Birth in Ancient Greece, but here I will just call upon Esther Harding’s definition: Virginity means being “whole unto oneself.” No shame, no blame. So when I talk about “restoring virginity,” I’m talking about a process of restoring your sovereignty as a woman.
