Relationship With Sacred Spirit


HSSA_Rainbow_logo_SmallSeveral years ago I asked a friend to design a logo for me for a special project. The logo was fantastic, the project bombed. It started with Sacred Self; that’s all I really knew…the double S’s appeared to me in a DNA double helix design and was light filled. Paul, my magic making logo designer, created the shape, the prismatic rainbow light and shine. I knew it had to do with our earliest beginnings, a core pattern that underpins a sacred quality of light, like stained glass church windows, on a cellular level. So now I had a logo and just as a good logo should do, it compelled me to action. The logo called me in to work with it and had always seemed to whisper a secret to me. I kept trying to listen and I got clues. Sacred Self, Sacred Soul, Sacred Seed? Yes, it was all that and more. And all would go quiet again for a time.

In time it occurred to me that the special project was in fact me, not something I had to do for others. At the time I was just beginning to understand “sacred” as a quality to being; that all of life and all expressions of creation have an intrinsic value that is sacred and that we are all shamefully disconnected from this phenomena of ‘Sacred’.  It had taken me years to surrender to the fact that my brain was not going to answer my deepest longings, loneliness, and fear. I’d really thought I could think myself happy and safe. It dawned on me that my worries, anxiety and stress had rooted in a deep, dark, mucky place within me and they wouldn’t un-root through hope. My conundrum was that I was naturally a hopeful person, with an optimistic outlook. Up until my mid thirties I thought this was a matter of perspective, a condition that developed out of years of positive thinking training and applied metaphysics. It was logical to me to focus on the positive – after all focusing on the negative just resulted in more pain. It was as simple to me as determining not to cry over spilled milk and setting your focus on the bright side. I believed fully that I had pulled it off, and so, unconsciously, my heart and brain continued to war and navigate me through my world alternately through filters of despair and optimism. I stumbled around in a paradoxical state for years. Possibility collapsing into despair which in turn collapsed into possibility. And some more time went by.

One night as I sat in on a transition town meeting people were lamenting how few people were actually using blue boxes and actively participating in recycling. In that moment I realized that people weren’t ever going to change their outer habits until they could profoundly grasp that they were sacred beings and in a symbiotic sacred relationship with earth. That the earth was an extension of themselves and visa versa. This thought got my attention. So what did that mean really? It’s not the plastic that has to be managed  – it’s the acceptance of life being sacred that had to be embodied which perhaps then could allow there to be a functional alternative to plastic period. The light brightened and some of the muck dried up.

Earth-Bound Spirit

I’m not a religious person, never have been. I long ago established myself as a deeply spiritual person decidedly determined not to pay homage to any god/goddess type figurehead of any description. My everyday spirituality has nothing to do with the heavens and everything to do with the blessed earth. My spirituality starts and ends in the dirt. It’s visceral. I resonate with trees, plants, rocks, birds, animals and the elements.  My spirituality is rooted firmly in my connection to all things of this realm of reality. In nature I witness magic and miracle, perfect order, mathematical precision, evolution, death and re-birth. Through nature I have learned about communication, consequence, relationship, compassion, listening, kindness, trust, surrender, faith and love. Although I love the use of metaphor and mythology to illustrate a great teaching I don’t need a religious hypothesis to explain my existence. I am here simply because it was my time to be here. I arrived in perfect timing and I will exit this life in perfect timing as will and do we all, contrary to what our hearts wishfully desire. I am a synergistic expression of all life and consciousness as it is continuously creating and unfolding in harmony with all other life at this time. Perhaps one day I will feel compelled to reach to the heavens for answers but for now I have enough to contemplate witnessing the world I walk in. And I am grateful, so very grateful. This is not a giving thanks kind of gratitude toward a deity for blessings received. This is a well-spring of energy that is powerful and dynamic and causes my heart to swell. Gratitude is a condition that becomes noticeable through heartfelt appreciation. It flows upward from the earth through my feet, to my heart and out into my universe.  I offer this force of energy with intention back to life as nurturing creative juice via my thoughts and my actions. My spirituality is grounded in wonder and awe of the incredible synchronized interplay of intent, free will and action of all conscious life forms and sentient beings.

earth vibeIn my evolving growing spirituality I feel as deeply affected by a butterfly flapping its wings on the other side of this beautiful planet as I do a new seedling shooting up toward the sun deep in the rain forest as I do a fellow human being or animal being experiencing being slaughtered mercilessly in some unnamed nation. What is in one is in all, what affects one affects all. Just as my state of mind and heart affect them. These are sacred relationships. I know I am never without company, I am never alone or just me. My mind can easily separate me from all else, isolate me if I need to be and pretend that I’m a rogue aspect independent of all creation but through my heart I feel deeply my connection to all life.  When I allow my awareness to tap into that sacred matrix of energy mysteries unravel, secrets are revealed, emotions and experience become shared, I become cognizant of a sacred spirit that flows endlessly and is homogenous to all creation.. I get to know what you know. That is a sacred relationship. Through my sacred relationships I contribute to and perpetuate a sacred spirit that is omnipotent.

Sacred Spirit runs timelessly and tenaciously connects us all in one thread, interlocking our fates as one with this earth of ours. A sacred energy born of you and me and all other forms of life that in a single breath unites our destiny.

This morning I was reminded in reading an interview that the fate of our civilizations and humanity will not be saved even if every one of us practiced good sustainable actions. And in that I was reminded again that only by welcoming and stepping into a sacred relationship with sacred spirit can we regenerate our world and only then will it matter.

Butterfly Effects of Change


A few months ago I connected with a woman through LinkedIn, Lu Pierro, and she had a vision to share!

She was promoting her 2nd annual Worldwide Holistic Day. The purpose of the event is to introduce people to the options offered through alternative complementary therapies. Ms. Pierro has asked practitioners of all modalities to plan an event where they can offer their respective therapies to their local communities at no charge on the 2nd of October on the anniversary of Gandhi’s birthday. The theme, of course, is to “Be the Change”. I became totally and completely smitten with the idea.

I immediately began to plan my own event and have passed the word on. I loved everything about Lu’s vision. I loved that it was meant to encompass  every modality and that it was a volunteer offering. I loved that it celebrated Gandhi’s birthday and that its primary invitation to the public was to be the change! But most of all I loved the simple fact that Lu understood the powerful effects of small intentional change. Of course this too was Gandhi’s life’s vision! I live my life by this code and it was a captivating idea to be part of something as huge as a global event just doing my own little thing! I couldn’t wait to share it!

So on October 2nd from 1 – 4pm I will be in Hamilton with my associates Lynda Henriksen, Mary Giuffre and Paul Clark doing our thing. I am going to be holding a seminar and open discussion on “Being the Change”, complete with focused guided meditations and a healing circle. We will close with networking and a hands on healing share by and for whom ever wants to participate. Our space holds 150 participants and I hope it’s packed! But if it’s not…it will still be perfect!

The Butterfly Effect

Very simply said…the butterfly effect says that small tiny changes can eventually cause huge effects, in  fact the theory goes that the gentle flap of a butterflies wings could be the cause of a major wind current like a hurricane down the road. In Chaos Theory the butterfly effect is defined as “the sensitive dependence on initial conditions, where a small change at one place in a non-linear system can result in large differences to a later state”.

When we bring this phenomenon to our front mind we add the factor of intention. When we multiply that intention by hundreds of people intending the same thing we increase our effect exponentially.

Intending Outcomes

We are not randomly, arbitrarily going to sit there in Hamilton in a group and mindlessly flap our metaphoric wings trying to create a wind storm. No we are going to intentionally establish a common heightened vibration, a symbiotic intention for ourselves first and then Be it.

As Gandhi put it to us..Be the change we want to see in the world. So on Sunday we will practice Being the Change! We will learn to embrace ourselves as the masters of change. We will come to understand our place in the Universe as co-creative beings with power. We will endeavor to feel with our whole bodies what it means to be healthy, vibrant and brave. We will experience the vast illumination of bio-electric magnetic energy that we truly are and feel what it feels like to be empowered in a self-generating high frequency vibration. And after that…well after that there is nothing left to do…after that we just are!

The greatest problem in the world today is that we have forgotten the truth of what we are. We are sacred, radiant beings of light, perfectly capable of being healthy, abundantly prosperous and loving beings. We’ve lost sight of our innate Divinity. When we learn to embrace our essential Godliness we instantly increase our vibration toward a more perfect frequency. The phenomenon that takes over then is called entrainment. Every molecule that is of a lower frequency will instantly strive to raise its vibration to match with the healthiest vibration available. Everyone that shares DNA will quickly establish a resonance with the increased frequencies – no matter how far away! All we have to do is be pure and strong in our in own individual intention and it will be felt the world over! A noble plan indeed! But in the world of quantum physics this is how it works.

Being the Change!

So on October 2nd I need your help! I need you to join me in Hamilton in body or in spirit and in the hours between 1 and 4 set your attention on being the very best you can be! Clear your mind of difficulties and challenges, and turn your focus on imagining your world as being stress free, joyful, healthy, love-filled and peaceful. For 3 hours on Sunday simply allow yourself to feel what it would feel like to live the life of your dreams. Deny the voices that tell you life isn’t so or that it can’t be had, or to stop being foolish. For 3 hours intend a tsunami of positive loving energy flooding through the hearts and minds of all those you come in contact with, your relatives near and far, and in all the places you have had the good fortune to visit.

For 3 small hours on Sunday October 2nd catch the wave of change toward the life of your dreams and join thousands of others as we co-create a vision and in truth a new possibility for a positive, loving, healthy, and peaceful world. For 3 small hours on Sunday join us in daring to BEING THE CHANGE!

In the Universal Flow of Unconditional Love


All concepts of how we express ourselves are shifting as we approach the dawning of a new era, especially how we engage with the dynamics of love and fear. Up until now we understood that to hold a feeling of love for our fellow beings is a high vibrating ideal and one to actively pursue, while fear is commonly accepted as a low-frequency vibration. Consciousness is now rapidly shifting toward the understanding of Oneness. We are collectively being asked to release ourselves from angry, painful, worry-filled systems of thought, and step into the understanding of unconditional love. This is not as simple as we like to think. We have all been inundated with thought patterns, belief systems and scare tactics that expound the devastating realism of a world destined for doom. Fear is a challenging and overbearing presence to conquer. But conquer it we must.

Understanding Unconditional Love in a Dualistic Real World View

Love and fear are the opposite expressions of heart energy. Unconditional love and unconditional fear represent the extreme polar ends of one paradigm. Unconditional love doesn’t accept weakness and fear as real, it sees past it, through it and beyond it. All fear disintegrates when exposed to the light of pure love. They simply cannot co-exist in the same space. In love there is nothing to fear. Likewise, when locked in paralyzing fear you are not loving. Fear dominates and creates such extreme darkness that the light of love isn’t even visible.

Fact is most people have had very little real world experience with unconditional love. We’re still locked in a learning curve. Most people still hold expectations around their ‘unconditional’ love and it’s no wonder. We live in a real world of conditions and expectations. We live in a dimensional plane of time lines, schedules and due dates. The real physical world functions around the exchange of value; money or barter for service/commodity. We hold and share love in this same way.

Unconditional Love–>    <–Unconditional Fear

We’ve been learning how to be in love. The energies of the past 2000 years of the Picean Age under the directive of the Christ consciousness have allowed us to engage with life interactively as our energies flowed freely between love and fear. We learned how to maintain the flavour of each within the experience of either. We touched on our fears while simultaneously feeling love. If we were smart we tried to learn to appreciate our own weaknesses and strengths through the continuous interplay of these energies. In understanding that as we held fear for others we were merely projecting our own inadequacies, we opened the opportunity for deep personal healing. Our fear belongs to us alone and we have no right to lay it over someone else’s experience. Most people experienced a relatively small cycle of love/fear flowing through a balanced point of energy. The challenge has been precisely to achieve and maintain a balanced state of being between these two dynamics. But now as we approach 2012 and a fuller expression of the Aquarian Age, the stakes of the game have been raised.

We are currently in the process of shifting consciousness to the emergent dynamic of Oneness. Those of us who can hear this message of universal oneness and are willing to embrace its’ poignancy are being asked to step up our integrity to be impeccable in the way we perpetuate this vibration of unconditional love. It is a time of faith and action. It’s time to walk the talk. And time to surrender fully to the light! In Oneness we are being asked to shift our attention to the radiant, omniscient consciousness of unconditional love.

A Paradigm Shift: A World in Oneness


I can see your virtual warm and fuzzy smiles at the mere thought of oozing your unconditional love to all and sundry. So consider this…

The opposite of Love is Fear.

If we are truly in unconditional love then we are in a fear less state of being.

Got it?

More love -> Less fear.

therefore:

Unconditional love = Fearlessness

So now…ask yourself again…how often are you truly in a state of unconditional love…how easily do you slip into fear, for yourself, for your loved ones, for strangers? It is easier for most people to ‘feel’ an unconditional love for people that they are not personally invested in. This is not ‘unconditional love’ however, it is ‘not giving a damn’ – they are not the same thing. The closer people get to their own gene pool and hence their own heart the more difficult it is to remain unconditional. To truly maintain ‘unconditional love’ means to be able to maintain the vibe under every extreme condition, under the worst circumstances. Remember, love is a high frequency emanation – fear a low one. Love will always conquer fear if love is unconditional. When love is shaded with doubt, fear and worry it is not pure, it is tainted by darkness and doesn’t have the power to conquer anything. Only complete pure unconditional love will conquer all.

Why Bother You Ask?

The emergent consciousness is grounded in Oneness. Through this new experience of Oneness we will surely learn what it is to share universal life force energy unreservedly. We will come to understand that we cannot harm another sentient being without causing harm to ourselves. And if we learn our lessons well we will come to experience unparalleled growth, health, harmony and unconditional love. Jose Arguelles in his video “2012 – Circumpolar Rainbow Bridge” [see below] encourages us to create a positive dynamic energy that must be equal to and beyond the negative force caused by the atomic bomb if we want to evolve past our current state of being. Our planet is currently, officially in an unsustainable state. On this current path of negativity, war, political dominance, uncontrolled consumerism and blatant greed we are destined to fail as a species and as a planet. Will love save us? As a physical species and presence in our Solar System – perhaps. As spiritual entities connected to an evolving God consciousness – unequivocably YES!

The last several decades have shown innumerable tribes of healers emerging all over our planet. More and more we are recognizing our individual powers and desire to heal ourselves, each other and our planet. Indeed we are proving to the world and our universe that we are Healers. Consider that our little blue and green gem ‘Earth’ is a healing oasis floating in the universe – a cosmic training ground for healers of all descriptions. Consider that potentially Earth is actually destined to be a lush safe place to grow, to learn and to evolve as spiritual beings and that unconditional love is our way! Imagine what it would be like if we were able to successfully create an omniscient energy of complete unconditional love, compassion and acceptance on a worldwide scale. Perhaps it is our Destiny to offer our services of healing to the cosmos.

Let’s focus all our love-filled intent to become the planet for universal healing. Human beings are delicate, fragile, vulnerable physical beings. But when you add our vastly creative minds and our abundant compassionate hearts to the mix you begin to realize the fantastic potential we hold to biologically, electrically, and magnetically shift reality into an unprecedented glorious manifestation of vibrant health.

If we’re going to be Healers – let’s do it with all the Unconditional Love we can muster!

Calling all Dreamers and Lightworkers – Your Destiny is Now!


I warn you right now, before you read another word, today I’m being deadly serious. In light of the happenings on our earth and in our consciousness over the past couple of weeks it’s time to get seriously REAL! I’m talking about you starting to live as the Divine Being you really are – the Earth needs you to.  YOU are each wondrous Beings of Light and possibility, here on earth at this time in history to help birth the new changes! It’s time to step up to the plate! Your destiny is here now!

The Situation

We – all human beings on earth –  are sitting in a precarious state these days. Our earth is rocking and rolling, shifting and shimmying and her people are becoming deeply frightened. People who had previously ignored the turmoil and upheaval in the world are suddenly waking to the crisis that millions are facing daily. People around the world are crying tears of empathy and sorrow for their fellow beings’ trauma and hardships. But compassionate crying is not what is needed now. Now we need strength and clarity if we want to heal and evolve consciousness. We need all hands on deck on Starship Earth! It is critical that we begin to direct all our focus on our strengths, our possibility and most importantly on our Divinity. It is vital that we begin to see ourselves as sacred expressions of Divine Light if we intend for humanity to survive these incumbent earth changes.

I want to be very clear here – this truly is not a doomsday warning. I don’t know, no one knows, what our world will be like when all the dust settles and the waters recede. I’m sure for the people of the many countries that have been so tragically hit by drought, flood, earthquake, tsunami, tornadoes, and fire,  it must seem as though the very worst has already happened. Their lives are irreparably changed. And these are just a few of the many natural devastating events that have happened recently, never mind the politically based atrocities that happen continuously on one continent or another. I couldn’t guess what the outcome of the coming years will be. Who’ll be safe and who’ll be endangered is not however relevant to the outcome. As far as I’m concerned we’re all in it together. Nothing sets us apart except our geographical locations. The entire earth and her populations will be required to continuously adapt as living species after species are eradicated from our biosphere. What happens to one happens to all equally. It’s time to step out of the illusion that tells you that the horrific things that are happening to the earth and her people are not happening to you. What happens to one of us – affects all of us.

It’s time to wake up, we’re living a nightmare!

The prophecies are ominous, the science is nebulous, some religions offer ideas of salvation for select numbers and chosen denominations. The masses however remain confused and worried. It’s like we are living in a nightmare and just like being in a dream we feel almost powerless to change the course of events as they continue to unfold. The only thing most people agree on is that a transition is near. We are approaching a time in history, a date, after which no one has any idea of what will happen. We are however, agreed that we are entering a new uncharted era. We are in transition and we need a plan!

It’s time to let go and let God! In a very big way! But I’m not suggesting that you just give up…I’m saying that it is time to just wake up, let go of the nightmare and fear and let your Divine nature take hold of the reins.


To wake up we must implement a strategy now, for now, to get us through now. We can only heal in the now. To heal a problem, dysfunction or system of dis-ease we need to do 3 things:

i) Come into full awareness of the problem as it exists, without judgment or blame or believing in fairy tales endings. Just see it for what it is. Step into the real moment – NOW.

ii) Adopt healthy, sustainable life-generating values, principles and habits. Stop indulging in habits that don’t support growth, expansion and life.

iii) Understand yourself and cultivate yourself as an empowered Divine Being with the ability to make choices of unlimited resource and potential. Begin conducting yourself with all your senses balanced in heart and mind.

You are Greater than You Realize!

It is becoming increasingly critical that we learn to understand ourselves fully as an integral part of earth and earth consciousness. As the earth moans and groans and adjusts her great body to move through the galaxy at this time in history we are obligated to understand that we are along for the ride. It is our option to continue behaving as parasites upon the surface of the earth, sucking the life out of our host with out a care for her survival, only looking after our own relative comfort. Be aware that eventually, as the living species that are extensions of elemental earth perish and become extinct, our own parasitic selves become vulnerable to death. However, if we were to embrace ourselves as conscious living extensions of earth as well and recognize our innate Divine aspect, there is a hope, not primarily for survival, but for successful transition.

Most of us know that the truest essence of ourselves is not restricted to being this imperfect vulnerable physical body that walks a few short years upon the surface of earth, but rather that we are divine in nature and that our true spirit is intrinsically connected to all spirit and thus ultimately that spirit will survive all physical devastation. Our challenge then becomes not of surviving physical life, but in not creating negative karma that will continue to hinder the growth of generations to come. What we do today will inevitably influence what our future generations have to contend with.

Consider that by our actions and reactions, our successors will either be starting again, struggling from scratch, back to square one, like has happened at least 4 times before in our history on planet earth or that there exists a possibility of continued expansion and growth from this day forward. Perhaps if we were to conduct our selves with grace, gratitude, responsibility, forgiveness, love and compassion we could lessen the burdens of  excessive emotional and spiritual baggage that we have carried forward to date and are already shipping into the future.

Create an Inspired Vision for Life

Imagine a new world that is guided in wisdom and love; a world where we are aware of our history and are no longer required to engage in power struggles and greed to the detriment of our fellow beings in consciousness. Imagine that we have all learned our lessons well, and that we, through self forgiveness and compassionate understanding, understand the roles we have all played in the devastation of our earth as she is today but also that we are able to celebrate in her renewal and long-term survival.

Spirit will re-manifest itself for expression somewhere again in time and space. Great mystics, visionaries, scientists and healers have always known that life extends beyond the confines of our physical expressions, beyond life on earth in fact. There is life within life, many systems of life, co-existing and interdependent. We humans are but one stream of sentient consciousness.

In this blog site I’ve written a lot about empowerment, making choices, sacred geometry, divine expression over the years. These are not idle self-interested musings with vague purpose. The purpose of this blog is to address our changing world and her conditions. As the stewards of this little spinning Garden of Eden, we are obligated to develop strategies for her survival and yet we have steadfastly refused to tend to her care. We have failed miserably and we are now sit facing imminent disaster and self-destruction.

It is not too late to recommit and reinvest our attention and intentions for a healthy vibrant outcome. We need to adopt new ways of coping and handling life force energy quickly if we intend to create a peaceful, sustainable future. Specifically we need to adopt those qualities NOW~ We need to embrace sustainable and regenerative thoughts, act with love and compassion, refuse the indoctrination of fear and warring from the powers that be and live generously with grace. We are unlimited sources of energy, able to visualize and actively create a new destination than the one we are currently headed towards. If we want future generations to be able to experience peaceful life on Earth we need to plant those spiritual seeds now so a new expression of earth can be birthed.
