I have been thinking a lot lately about Fear. As a people, we have experienced huge fear over this last bit of time. Fear causes contraction, the opposite of expansion...as we have planted the seeds of our move into Aquarius, we are called to expand! So if things are feeling incongruent or inconsistent to you lately, this could be why.
The Heroes Journey is something Joseph Campbell wrote about as inevitable in our soul's evolution. This journey is the foundation of so many epic movies and legendary tales: the story line involves a hero who goes on an adventure, is victorious in a decisive crisis, and comes home changed or transformed. This journey is presented in our everyday lives, but how many of us recognize it as such?
In it lies the answer of how to step out of fear, find our truth, and move forward in the decisive action! If we look to this model, then we see the antidote for fear is Courage. Like Joan of Arc, who was incredibly afraid, but also recognized her soul's journey, and her life's mission: "I was made for this, and I have no choice." Courage (coming from Coeur-age, or open heartedness) can bring us into the truest and most authentic version of ourselves. And this allows us to move out of fear and into our highest self. Our soul's mission. Our own personal dharma.
As a Scorpio, firstborn daughter of a master mariner, member of the Rainbow Tribe, children's author, researched Scientist and Shaman's apprentice...I have been through some deep, dark shadow work. My own healing has been lifelong and always comes through in waves. We talk about the path of ascension looking like a spiral ladder, as we rise with our work and realizations, we see the same issues, but from a slightly different point of view. I have gone to the ends of the earth to study with masters and gurus, at ashram and monastery, trail and beach, narrowly avoiding natural disaster and finding the gems hidden within. What I realized is our ability to take our own journey right here, where we are, with what we are being offered. It is never too late to begin or to take the next step.
What I have uncovered in the intersection between my scientific research and my spiritual/wellness path... is that personal wellness and global health goes hand in hand. Surely, this can look like the Hero's Journey as we are in the spiral and going through it. When we are able to process when we feel safe, whole, held, nourished, and loved, then we can digest what needs to be inspired, adventured, uncovered, discovered, thus overflowing our own cup and living in a state of decision making to protect our planet and serve the higher good. I have found the new moon to be ripe with opportunity for shadow work, and as we get quiet, we are able to glean the jewels from our own depths. Our own darkness. Shadow. Over the last few years, my practice with the new moon cycles has been growing and strengthening. To this end, I have found much joy in creating a rich basket of community and safe nurturing inner work space for others.
I am so excited to let you know that in this coming moon cycle, I'll be opening up spots in a New Moon Magic program I am curating! This will be a consistent, nurturing way for you to join our circle and find support for your own creative personal process for a period of the 3 moons of winter! This will be a guided new moon circle as an online gathering with ritual, ceremony, journal prompts, guided journey and other tools for inner exploration. You will be prompted a week ahead of time with any tools you may need or supplies I have for you. The growth possibilities are truly endless with this richly supported program. Knowing how feelings of community and connectedness can prompt daring steps of karmic growth and dharmic mission, this program grows common-unity. To support this, our schedule will also include a 1:1 session with me halfway through each month, to help support your personal intentions and help you to bring them into fruition in the most rich and connected, nourished way.
Align yourself to the stars to remember what you are made of.
Ground yourself deeply to the center of the earth.
Find your footing.
Take some deep breaths.
See with your third eye, the vantage point of angels and eagles.
We are here to support you.
Our connections are many and strong. Our basket of community is complex and rich in its texture, culture, elements, jewel toned hues. Reach out if it has been too quiet of late and you need reminding. I am here.
I see you. I celebrate you. Keep going. You are doing great.
Keep up your self care. Overflow your own cup. Call those who remind you of your gifts and love who you truly are. This New Moon Magic circle will launch on January 13, with the first new moon cycle of 2021. You are wholeheartedly invited, please reply to this note if you want to know more and claim your seat!
A Blessed turning of the Ages and entry into the Age of Aquarius to you and your sweet familiars. I don’t know about you, but I am So Ready for unity and a clear sense of connectedness!
This can feel bumpy. Uncomfortable. Not familiar. Even icky as we try to integrate what we've never seen done before.
(for example, this pandemic has wreaked havoc in our little house with not being able to find enough social variability. Our Christmas morning was sweet and quickly overwhelmed with technology and frustration, sugar and caffeine. We needed to get a change of emotional scenery so we piled into the green toaster and headed uphill. Fresh air, connection with nature, a blizzard and some squeals got us back on track)
And yet, this time can prove out the brightest positive change we have felt! I have been receiving some great downloads lately, my friends. In sharing the essence of these, I want to give hope. Inspiration. A sense of belonging. Maybe some reasonable explanations for the wacky things we are all feeling and moving through.
...We ARE One.
You are not alone.
I see You.
You are Loved.
You are Held.
We can speak different languages but the golden thread of our human experience connects us.
We can want the same outcomes for humanity, and have different ideas about how we get there.
Our hearts are unified.
You are Beautiful.
It is Time.
What is at least one thing YOU Dream of Birthing in this new time? I'd love to know. How can I support YOUR Dreams?
Part of my dream is detoxing. Would you be interested in a full body cleanse starting in two weeks time? The 30 day protocol is up on my Personal & Planetary Health FB group, if you are interested... reach out! Let's coordinate and support each other in this path.
Holding the torch for us each, together, for grace and for our greatest turning,
Today is a new moon and a solar eclipse. These are wild times, with the massive energetic ride culminating at the Winter Solstice, December 21!
YOU get to decide what you wish to create during this great shifting sand of time.
This time can feel like a runaway train. So much uncertainty, so much feeling of not knowing, of not trusting, of confusion. Picking up speed.
Getting still, listening, uncovering and naming our clear intentions, finding insights and heart centered openness together can be an antidote.
Would a little assistance be welcome to facilitate your own clearing and healing through this? Let us play in this generosity of spirit together.
This Tuesday evening, tomorrow, I will lead a guided meditation for the new moon and solar eclipse and gear us up for the Winter Solstice online. We will drop into our heartspace and talk briefly about accessing all our 3 brains (head, heart, and belly) to bring authenticity to our experience. There will be cards pulled, and I will play a role I simply love, taking you on a guided journey. Plus, I will be making a smoothing, inspiring roller ball essential oils Changing Ages blend tomorrow to share, and these will be available for your curbside pickup! If you are not local, I can ship to you.
With this Solstice also serving to conjunct Jupiter and Saturn, we see this configuration supporting all systems being up for review. The last time this configuration occurred, the Magna Carta was signed. All the things we have lived with for the last 800 years, are under question and ready for some critical review. If we are able to keep our eyes trained to the stars, we are able to move in gracefully grounding, giving up what does not serve, and finding presence in creating a life made up of our collective highest good.
What do you dream of bringing into being or allowing? Do you dream of improved health, creating our dream life, learning to train eyes to the stars, or finding inner calm to weather this storm?
YOU ARE INVITED!
New moon- solar eclipse guided meditation and connection to prepare for the opening of the conjunction portal on the longest night of the year.

Now I know, we need to find inner balance to create outer health.
Im-Balance compromises Immunity. On All Levels. Are you open to finding your balance and most resilient self? Maybe it's time for your next level of healing!I Love to help others find better health and resonance through living our best lives. If I can help you with this niggling challenges; sleep, exercise, metabolism, pain, inflammation, heart hurts, or detoxing, my zoom door is open and the tea kettle is warm!
One teeny step I've learned... that a ritual of writing notes expressing gratitude – especially if we are feeling anxious, depressed, or stressed out – can strengthen those parts of the brain that give us the power to improve our behavior and to change our limiting habits. Those niggling things that limit our ability to achieve the goals we want. The health we crave. The life we dream of. The love we are worthy of!
In calling forth our own highest good in these pressurized weeks leading up to the end of the year, I am loving these oils for courageousness and think you might also.
Friends, the new moon is but a week away. This period of waning brings us through forgiveness into surrender to what is. These oils will support you in gracefully grounding, giving up what does not serve, and finding presence in creating a life made up of your highest good.
You are Invited!
