Meditations on the teaching of Grandmother Spider, sacred geometry, ascension, the flower of life, and creation

"We re-connect with one another through the Flower of Life, seeing rings of light, streams of light, which are loving impulses. These move from one consciousness to the other.  Use these silver cords as a means of communicating and sharing your expansion with others..."

Although I  channeled this message a few years ago, I am just coming into resonance with the understanding of it now. At the time I was teaching Goddess Workshops and we were exploring the Flower of Life and the Web of Creation thru the teachings of Grandmother Spider...

One day I created a massive full spectrum grid with little pyramids and quartz points in the very intricate FOL pattern. I wove a web of consciousness. I sat in, it laid on it, meditated on it, dreamed in it, journeyed there in an amazing light. Then I took it apart. I intuited this full-spectrum light as an essence, which comes down and surrounds me like a tube, and I can also see it as surrounding entire groups when I am doing group work. As I connect with this beam of light, it is as if a vacuum is allowing my expansion to move into a higher dimension. I call forth a beam of light and connect myself to this etheric consciousness grid thru the silvery threads, my consciousness stream.

As I am moving through this experience, I begin by imagining myself in this etheric crystalline web. Although I am not in that dimension of existence, it is somewhere in the past for me, I created a light cord to connect to the energies. I remain unattached in the sense that I am not immersed physically or emotionally in the energies, only aware.  I am not pulled back into memory, but can I observe it ethericaly as energies, in my case color frequency.

For those of you who are working with the flower of life,  you also move into this space during your creation meditations, and allow yourself to connect with one or more of these "crystals" filled with light. Blend with whichever color or pattern you feel called to. For some it may be as you blend with this crystal, that it is activating something within you that you need to free yourself from in order to ascend dimensionally. It may be as if this is a part of yourself, which is now becoming more attuned, and in line with this higher energy.

From this space within the energy of the "crystals" in time you will be able to allow your consciousness to blend until you become the geometry and then finally the full-spectrum consciousness of that beam of light.

Move through the light until you have a sense of emerging from the light in a place in which you are pure consciousness. You will feel an upward pull, perhaps you will feel as you are being sucked upward, vaccuumed. Don't forget to breathe! From this perspective, you are able to re-connect the full aspect of your I AM presence.  Your consciousness is reaching out to even greater limits, and you reach the place in which there are no limits. You move into that space. Feel the greater radiance that is reflected through your expanded consciousness. You will feel this is the space between your heart and solar plexus at first and then it will move up. Take this time to truly feel and play and become aware of what this means to you. This may be a time for you to feel a sense of soaring; a sense of flying and dipping. Allow the joy and exaltation to be reflected in all that is you. There is no frustration because you have transcended the e-motion of the lower competing energies. 

This is an infinite space which is within your center, your zero-point. It is that part of us from which our essence came that very first time. It is that reflection of the All That Is. From this point of stillness, you move out, you move into that space in which the expansion goes even further out and beyond. You have a sense of knowing the completeness of the All That Is.

As you blend with the Goddess energy of Grandmother Spider become aware of that which is the soft, nurturing feminine. Somewhat of a smoothing off of the edges, circular and connective. You become aware of how this is blending more fully within all aspects of your life or lives. Your consciousness feels this expansion. It is able to take in and assimilate the ways in which it is shifting the energy throughout all aspects of your I AM presence as it radiates out from you.

Really observe the shift in this vibration. You will have a sense of moving at an even higher vibration as a result of this experience. From this space, be open to receive. Expand all of your senses, and from your inner eye, what do you see around you? Is there anything that you hear? Is there a scent or taste that you associate with this space. As you take all of this in and open your sense of knowingness, it all comes together. You feel a sense of completeness, a sense of completion of a cycle. Observe the many swirling energies as you remain in this space of joy or playfulness. You are the pure energy of the All That Is. Your essence is a reflection of the completeness of the blending with the sacred masculine and the sacred feminine. There is no distinction between the two, there is only one! Duality– poof!

Take this sacred oneness within all aspects of yourself, the energy of your consciousness.  Now put forth the intent  to create. You may choose to create that which you wish to have within your life, or you may choose to create an essence or an energy you wish to see upon the Earth plane as a whole. You begin within this space and completeness. You set forth your intent of that which you wish to manifest upon the physical plane. As you become very clear, you begin to realize that there are new perspectives or ideals which are born of the higher planes, and which are coming to light at this time. So now this too is infused within that which you are manifesting. You are creating Heaven on Earth.

Bring this clearly to mind that which you wish to bring back from this space in which you are creating. Have a sense of moving back along that thread between the dimensions that was created. You may have a sense of looking between the dimensions. You may have a sense of looking out towards the omniverse over the  grid. You become more aware of just how this light that is reflected by you is moving and expanding. It causes shifts to evolve. As you begin to move back along the thread to the center, you continue to remain in a place of expanded consciousness, but you can feel the subtle shifts in the dimensions.

Remember also that you are part of a group. You may see all the energies that are working together in this energy and space at this time. You are each on your own personal path, yet there are many others who share in this (experience) with you. You are each crystals in the grid, connections in the web. This sacred geometry takes on many different aspects and dimensions that are used to assist you as you move from one space to anther or to enhance all that is your experience. The circle of life, which is represented, by each one of you is moving in another direction, then again there is an energy flow  that you become aware of, how one energy works off the other energy, or enhances the other energy. This is the web of life. This is the teaching of Grandmother Spider, sacred geometry and creation.

Many of you are asking the question about personal ascension vs. the ascension of the mass consciousness via the ascenscion grid or Christ consciousness. So I do want to address this. Many different types of healing are coming thru the Divine Feminine now, and many people will attune to what is often called the Christed energy, which as you know is about wholeness, oneness,  loving, and expansion of the love within. Although there are many different portals that are opening at this time, that which is commonly called "the Christ portal", is focused towards those who are not Lightworkers. It is focused towards those who have not yet awakened. What will happen as a result of this is that all the many millions will not necessarily understand what is happening to them, but they will simply feel the outcome of having this greater amount of love and energy upon the earth plane. This will facilitate the awakening en masse, thru what is known as the Ascension Grid.

You are not responsible for anyone's awakening. Say it out loud!

Each Lightworker, like you, who goes through a personal ascension is creating around them and within them the energies of this process. What ascension means is consciously moving into that energy of the expanded awareness in this moment in time. You are opening to that place where you have the awareness of that completeness which is within you, you move through your days and live in this experience of awareness.

But each individual will move through their ascension process in their own way, it is completely individualized this a part of the joy and the uniqueness that is a part of the human experience. Some will NOT be conscious of it, but many will. What truly moves us forward and allows for this expansion to occur is each person's individual experience, because that is what ties in and expands with the whole, the strands in the web. Each time that these connections occur in different experiences, another thread is tied that is pulling along the rest of humanity.. .

Know that you are the essence of light and love.
Know that you are always loved and supported in all that you do.

May you be blessed!

Waking up on the beach

When people are asleep, the future is a repetition of the past.

I am sad, and sickened. I weep over the loss of our beautiful, fragile coastline and a way of life forever changed as a result of the worst ecological disaster in my lifetime. It serves no purpose now to blame and point fingers. We can only decide that we must work toward a sustainable future.

But first we must wake up.

We must wake up to thousands of miles of irreplaceable wetlands and beaches, fisheries damaged for seasons, fragile species wiped out, and a region and an industry economically crippled for years. We must wake up to the dead. We must wake up to the maimed sea turtles, birds, dolphins and other animals. We must wake up to the fact that our dream, our own insatiable search for "happiness" cost them their lives. Let BP’s massive, out-of-control underwater gusher in the Gulf of Mexico be our alarm.

Hitting the snooze button seems safe because waking up to the unknown is frightening to contemplate, that fear bolstered by anything that represents losing control and or a measure of our happiness. We are set in our "ways." Our way, we are sure, is the best way or we would choose another way.  Finding a new way means abandoning an old way, and nobody can predict what happens when both forces hit each other head on. It takes courage to discard what we know: the tried and true, the comfortable and reassuring to create a new world where we value all life.

In the end, arriving at the new world will come down to doing what makes us happy.

We use oil because driving our own cars and traveling at will makes us happier than being limited to bikes and mass transit. We lament that more people don't give up their cars and take the bus. When you think about why they don't, the answer isn't decades of cheap gas, ingrained American selfishness, or a crass indulgence in personal pleasure over the health of the planet.

We don't change to a new way of life because we are following an old way of happiness. Duty and guilt ( and common sense) tell us to save the planet. But another voice speaks louder, and it asks if we would be giving up our happiness. Global warming won't be solved by lecturing the human race about saving the sea turtles.

Here we face the most difficult challenge of all. And it is spiritual in nature. Our conception of happiness has to move away from materialism. Every wise teacher has declared that external comforts are unreliable and not to be trusted. They keep us sleepy.

The world's wisdom traditions inform us which way to go. Only time will tell if waking up was the way we chose. If so, peril will turn into a creative opportunity to create the infrastructure to support environmentally-friendly energy sources. And the infrastructure of heaven on earth.

In the past, there has been too much money to be lost by Big Oil, too much of the old way of happiness threatened. But perhaps the oil spill will be the catalyst to make our spirit's voices heard. Perhaps we will wake up now, together, on the beach.

The other way leads to deeper and deeper sleep.

Wandering on the Reiki path, a Master's musings..

I became a traditional Usui Reiki Master in 1997, after several years apprenticeship and a $10,000  tuition paid in full.  Back then, it was a sacred calling which demanded dedication, sacrifice and service. In the past decades there have been many new systems taught by Reiki master/teachers, some are versions of Reiki, and others are not. I have worked with, and experienced many of these. I have also been attuned as "Master" in some of these systems for as little an hour's worth of dedication and a payment of $39.95. I even got a manual and the certificate to prove it should I want to hang it on my wall and make a living as a healer.... yikes!  Although the heart of Reiki is easy to understand, and it can be acquired using very simple methods, I'm not sure that you can actually master it or anything else in life in an hour, but I thought I'd experiment...

And so for many years I worked with and attuned students to the Traditional Usui Method, in the traditional manner of apprenticeship.

Over the years, I also have had dozens of clients ask me to evaluate their naturally called-on energy for which they prayed or spontaneously attuned to in a healing session, during their yoga practice, in meditation and through "dreaming" – all equally traditional methods!

I have found that usually these grace gifted-energies lack a grounding component and the healer needs to learn to incorporate 3-D practices to sustain the initial impulse which is spiritual. After a course of study in nutrition, exercise, self-love and gratitude,  I find these are very powerful gifts indeed. Sometimes the energy feels like Reiki,  but often it is a higher frequency. And its getting higher and higher!

These energies have always been around in small doses, usually without a name and usually employed only by those with a very high spiritual calling, the ancient shaman, the high priestess, or the reclusive poet in the garden surrounded by birds and butterflies, the chosen child mute and blind.

Which brings me to the reason for this blog post:

Each week I receive requests to attune online clients to Reiki. And although there are many Reiki Master teachers offering this service, I have chosen not to go this route. The reason is very simple. I would rather that my students/clients become their own Masters. Over time.  Of their own abilities. With spiritual practice and dedication to the path.

I am happy to offer services and products to help facilitate your practice, I am happy to teach metaphysics and consult, but I am no longer interested in being anyone's Master but my own.

Mikao Usui called in  "Reiki" energy after many years of spiritual training, while he was in the process of a 3 week spiritual fast on a well known mountain power spot.  During the years I ran a Holistic Youth Center I worked with young students (Indigo and Crystal children, many diagnosed with ADD/ADHD, Aspergers and mild Autism) who were able to duplicate the Reiki frequency once they experienced it (it's like people who can repeat music after hearing it once).  And in each case, these students have found their ability to do energy healing on themselves and others substantially increased after leaving behind the study of symbols and hand positions and dedicating themselves to the task of "climbing up to their own unique mountain power spot", that path that can only be discovered through dedication, sacrifice and service... and that in most cases that climb relieved the symptoms of their diagnoses. But that's another blog post all together (or is it?)!


I think in closing, it's enough to say that there are powerful healing and enlightening energies available now that can be acquired and accessed by you, just like Mikao Usui and others have accessed Reiki energy, and their unique personal gifts.  If you want them, you can have them.  Those very healing energies you need... they are available to you. And, if you want to Master them, you can do that too. And you won't even have to pay $39.95! You won't have a manual, but that's a good thing. Because everybody's instructions are different. Everybody's path is unique.

And you only get the directions one way: by listening for Spirit's whispers. It's time to get that straight.

I invite you to open yourself to access these higher forms of energy by inviting in your Higher Self, your Spirit Guides, or Angels and asking them bring in the energy that is right for you today, at your current level of understanding and evolution, for your dis-ease, for your well-being.  As these beings are pure love and light, they will act as gatekeepers for you, ensuring that only beneficial energy comes to you. Learn to work with this energy, play with it, create with it: cook, garden, paint, weave, touch! Grow, become, manifest something with it.

Then ask again. And again. Do it again, and again.
No, I won't be offering Reiki attunements online anytime soon.
Only love and support...
as you become your own Master.

May you be blessed!

Meditations on the Dark Goddess, Divine Mother, in Troubled Times

I am sure many of you are feeling the effects of the recent earth and man-made event traumas deeply in your hearts and I wish you all peace as you pray and joyfully contribute to the healing that must occur on all levels here on our precious planet Earth and within humanity. For those of you who are working to open your etheric heart with the intention of creating and BEING a pathway to Source for others, I call upon the Divine Mother to take your hand and lead you in that cosmic and eternal dance of ONE LOVE.

Over the last decade or so, I have come to understand the Divine Mother as the divine Creatrix who has manifested loving forms of consciousness as an adoration for Her beloved, the eternal formless Supreme Being - God the Father, timeless lovers who are not two, but inseparably bound to model the cosmic and eternal dance of ONE LOVE. She is that aspect of the Divine which is accessible by Her direct presence. She calls me to call to you, now.

Although forms of the Goddess are countless, there is only one Divine Mother or Sacred Feminine behind them all. Ultimately the Mother is pure formless Love. I believe that by pursuing and practicing love for the Mother in any and all of Her forms, we will arrive at the non-dual perspective which will ultimately lift humanity out of the veils of illusion and suffering. Years ago I prayed for the key, and it was given quite readily. It is through the Divine Mother that we may access the Mind of God, command Zero-point energy, and create Heaven on Earth.

All cultures have seen the Supreme Being in female form. Hindu and Buddhist cultures petition many forms of the Divine Mother. In the Islamic tradition Allah has two principle names - Rahman and Rahim which mean Compassionate and Merciful. Both of these names are derived from the root Arabic word meaning "womb". Mahayana Buddhism recognizes the Mother as Prajnaparamita, the boundless Mother of all Buddhas. The early Gnostic Christians the Virgin Sophia who is the feminine embodiment of Wisdom. The Chinese, Kwan Yin the Goddess of Mercy. In orthodox Judaism there is the Sabbath Queen and the feminine Shekinah. The mystical Jewish Kabbalah maintains that out of the Absolute emanated the three Mothers or primal elements, out of which emanated three Fathers which were primordial or spiritual air, water and fire from which came the planets and their angels. Some hold that in the Christian Holy Trinity, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, that the Holy Spirit is the feminine principle. Mother Mary, the virgin mother of Jesus, continues the presence of the Divine Mother in modern Christianity.

Although She is only One, She appears in many forms as many goddesses. Each goddess emphasizes an attribute of the one Divine Mother. As our own earthly birth mother feeds us we might call Her "Food Mother",  when consoling us She is "Compassion Mother", when She runs from the house with fire in Her eyes to save us from the neighborhood bully She is "Warrior Mother." She has something for all of Her children when they need it most.

The Goddess resides in the depths of sea, in virgin forests, upon mountain tops, and in the cycles of life, days, and seasons. But I believe we we also must find the Goddess in the urban sprawl, through mindful living, and in the hearts of our children bringing us hope for the future, and returning us to our most ancient human roots as co-creators on Earth. She is a wellspring of love, compassion, and mercy when you need it most. When humanity needs YOU most.

In May 1998, the Black Madonna came to me in several dreams just prior to the Cyclone Nargis disaster. Again this May, in the midst of volcano eruption, earthquake and oilspill, I had a similar sense of forboding and felt an urgency to work again with our Dark Mother. She is the one of the triple aspects of the Goddess who begs understanding from many perspectives as we spiral through our lives and gain experience.

Our insatiable need for the beauty of youth, with our collective fear of aging, and death, in fact endings of all sorts has kept us from her wisdom in the recent past.

But endings always lead to new beginnings.

In every transition from any dependency – be it on  a toxic relationship, a toxic substance, our military might,  foreign oil, or expensive beauty treatments – whatever our addiction  – she does represent death, but we must remember that with death always comes rebirth.  With her help, we are able to fight  any addictions to fear that hold us back, keep us afraid, keep us apart, us... and them. Once we are ready to be reborn into oneness and compassion, she will guide us once again into the light. The most all-inclusive aspect of the Dark Mother is the power to transform things with creativity.

With creativity...

I have had this poem tucked away for many years. I do not know the author, but I would like to share it with you today.

Who is the Dark Goddess?

Who is this Terrible Death?

She is the dark one... the one who brings death and disease. The one we put out of our minds with a disquieted shrug. The one we frighten our children with... the one we cannot name.

And yet the Dark Goddess is not to be feared; she is to be faced. She is the strength you feel when you take control of your life, She is the anger you taste when you know you deserve better than this. She brings rest to the tired, she draws the hot bath water at the end of the long, dusty journey. No, she is not evil.

When pain beyond all tolerance comes, she is the bringer of peace. When the unthinkable happens, she is there with open arms, comforting and soothing the wounds. When life has gone on too long, and friends are all gone, she is there to take us home. She is not unfeeling.

But she is not a coddling mother, either. She expects us to be strong. She expects us to take ownership for our lives... she expects us to be able to stand; alone if necessary. And when the test comes, she expects us to be able to look in Her eyes.

Without Darkness, there can be no Light.

The Dark Mother can be feared only as long as we fear ourselves. We cannot fear something we are truly prepared for. We cannot fear that which is laid bare and plain before us. We may fear our instincts, but we cannot fear our true selves.

She is not be twisted to satisfy inner fears. She is not the reason you lash out because you hurt. She is not the one who wrenches you with guilt. She is not the one who gives up just before the unseen moment of victory.

She is the cold wind that hows through the cracks in your door. She is the darkness that seeps into your bones before dawn. She is the lonely scream on the battelfield where the dead lay silently. She is the gossamer caress of death when the time has come at last. She is the one who dares you to Stand, with hair flying in the wind and the flames burning around you.

And She is beautiful.

And so are you!
May you be blessed!
