Grounded in Nature…Naturally!


5 year old meWhen I was 5 years old my parents moved us from Toronto to Markdale, ON, a rural community some 2 hours north of the city. They had discovered a relic of an abandoned and ‘haunted’ house on an overgrown 10 acres of land out in the country that filled their hearts and minds with starry-eyed dreams for the future. Fortunately nobody else could see the place like they did and they were able to pick the place up for a steal and they proceeded to work their guts out every weekend until it reached a suitable standard of living to move their young family into. I remember being happy and free out on the farm in the middle of nature. In kindergarten back in the city, our teacher asked the class who went to church on Sundays. When everyone except me had raised their hands the teacher asked me for some insight. I responded innocently enough as only a 5 year old can, “We don’t have to go to church, we go to the farm.” The child in me recognized even then, (though the adult forgot), that Nature’s kingdom would be my spiritual haven all my life.

Over time, as I grew up, the farm also grew to 100 acres of forests, meadows and gardens. I remember being happy and free on the land, in the woods, in the fields, in the swamps, in the barns, working, camping out and exploring but it wasn’t for many, many years that I realized how deeply soul nurturingly important it was for me to be there nor did I understand the importance of the lessons and teachings I unconsciously learned while there. As an adult I understand that it is so often just plain human nature to take things for granted and take advantage of situations – children are not exempt from that. Although I knew I loved being there at the time I was mindless to what I actually learned and received in my enthusiastic emergence into nature.

Learning How to Live in Harmony

As a child living and working on a farm is different from being an adult. As a child I did chores as I was told but as an adult you make decisions, plot out a plan, take control. By the time I had returned to farming as an adult I had a lot of other things in my life that laid claim to my daily attention and available energy. I had to learn to rock and roll, deal with squeaky wheels first and do the best I could the rest of the time. I found it much easier to prioritize my days if I let Nature lead the dance. Living with the seasons taught me about being in the moment of life. Nature doesn’t wait, plan or hesitate. Nature expresses and produces in every moment. To rise to the task of planting, harvesting and the myriad of tasks in between I had to learn to be with Nature as fully as possible in every moment as well. As my willingness to participate with the natural flow of life around me developed I learned to also appreciate various other natural phenomena.

I became intensely aware of our journey around the Sun from season to season, of the Moon’s push and pull month by month, of the insects and their cycles in my garden and of the influence of various animals that made regular unusual appearances. Nature began speaking to me more clearly. Relevant messages were transmitted to me every day through all of her manifestations. It took patience, practice and surrender to hear properly. I learned to listen to the plants; flowers, weeds and trees, to the wind, and to earth with my feet buried in her soil. Birds and animals became messengers and harbingers of change. When Snapping Turtle began to appear at my door step followed by Snake and Turkey Vulture I learned to pay attention; change was afoot. All I knew for sure was that I was to keep my eyes and ears open for a messenger, one that would help me discover a foundation stone in my life in a new direction. I also knew that I would have to be ready to release any old attachments at any give moment and leave behind what needed to be for my and my family’s highest good. I continued on with my work, my herbs, my gardens until one day my messenger appeared. The question he asked was simple “Had I ever heard of Reiki?” The answer was even simpler…”No – and I wasn’t interested!”

Fortunately, my messenger was persistent. He became a good friend. He guided me through meandering pathways to explore my universe and world in ways I had never considered. Eventually he posed the question again…this time I was ready to crack the door a bit.  Through him I met my Reiki Master and through his teachings and support I began to open to new possibilities yet again. And once again nature came to me presenting herself in new ways. I began to experience the energy of nature, initially as energy patterns flowing and then as form presenting as deva, as fairy, as spiritual beings. Just as I had learned to develop relationship with the physical aspects of nature I was now learning to hone a relationship with the spiritual side of nature. My garden flourished beyond belief and reason. And I flourished in my garden. I grew, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Reiki became an integral part of my family’s life. I began to witness the life force energy in my clients and friends. I also began to see how an individual’s life force energy invigorated when in direct communion with nature via trees, plants, crystals, animals or exposure to the elements of air, water, fire and earth.

A new synergy began to motivate my life. I began practicing Reiki full time. We moved. More gardens were built along the way. My natural connection with spirit grew and expand into my consciousness. I began to understand how Spirit flows through all things and that all things hold varying degrees of consciousness. Furthermore, all “things” with consciousness flow together in one divine perfectly ordered field of energy. I craved sitting in the outdoors immersed in the energy of trees, water, wind and sunlight. My awareness grew in the knowing that the sensations I had when in Reiki sessions were stimulated the same way when I sat immersed in nature. I took another look into what Reiki was really all about.

Reiki; Nature’s Healing Art

disney tree of lifeReiki is a hundred year old tradition that was brewed through the mindful meditations of one Mikao Usui, a practicing Zen buddhist , as he continuously immersed himself in nature and his own childhood cultural upbringing informed by Shinto – a form of Japanese shamanism. His spiritual belief that the Divine could be realized and experienced in all natural manifestation is central to the hands on healing art of Reiki. The symbols, precepts and mantras all reflect the presence of light and bountiful natural energy as our inherent privilege if we were to surrender to it. So it began to dawn on me that there were some important relationships to note here. The practice of Reiki has a unique ability to connect us to our natural life force energy. It presents our imbalances, then re-balances, then inspires us to discover a peaceful way to be in the world. It causes wellness as an expression of harmony. I spent the next 20 years practicing Reiki with clients. In those years deep questions arose over everything, I always ended up back in the garden, under the trees, syncing my personal energy field with the plants, the earth, the elements and the spirit of nature. My busy mind would calm, the stress in my body would dissipate and I would be able to come back to work realigned, strengthened and regenerated.

Nature Spirit Calling and Illuminating A New Path

Many years ago I was asked to speak at a new age type gathering, my topic was to be “The connection between herbs and spirituality” It stumped me totally at the time. My mind didn’t even remotely understand the link and have pondered the topic ever since. Today I get it. It’s simple. Nature is the connection. We are all made of the same stuff; carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, and hydrogen and we mutually depend on one another. It is often said that nature would do just fine without us interfering, that she will revive after we have destroyed as much of her as possible before our own demise and I believe that is true to an extent. But I also think that nature with us co-operating with her in harmony will create outstanding things that we haven’t even begun to imagine yet. I believe that our educations systems, our health care systems, our communities, our architecture and our technology will developed in such extraordinary ways as we learn to mimic the ways of nature. Nature seems to thrive in the reflection of humanity and visa versa. My garden grows well if left alone but when I help Nature grow my garden with understanding, love and creative vision my garden responds with overwhelming abundance. When I step into my garden projecting gratitude and happiness the vibe returns to me ten fold. When I nurture my garden as I would my children, with love in my heart, gentleness in my hands and ears eager to hear the story of its life unfolding I am rewarded with the energy of an intimate being that loves and understands me back and literally can’t wait to share.

We may sit as a foreign entity upon the earth believing that we are superior and have dominion,  separate of her being and indifferent to her power or her needs. Or we may surrender to her energy that flows to us and through us via all of her expressions and harmonize willingly. As we learn to re-connect to our beautiful Mother earth and ground deeply with our natural wisdom we will also learn to experience ourselves as emergent growth bearing fantastic fruit. Our ideas and dreams are not mindless impulses but deeply transmitted bio-diverse energies needing to find rich soil to grow in. The mind and heart of earth’s combined humanity has the ability to foster new seeds of thought to unprecedented realities. The Earth is inspiring us now with new possibilities, by furthering our connection with her, grounding in a mindful way our dreams can take root and co-creatively we can bring a new world to life for our future generations to build upon.

The Most Sacred Spot on Earth Lies Within


You’ve come to earth, to this universe to learn teachings that are only available here. Specifically, you have come to learn how to manage the power plays that are created in a dynamic of opposite energies. You sit here on our little emerald planet as either male or female and hold a particular perspective that ultimately enables you to behave one way over another. You are here to learn about freedom of choice, personal authenticity and the power of love, all while living in a sea of consciousness that is created by others doing the exactly the same thing. It is boggling to live even the simplest life.

In Quantum theory we are coming to understand that while on a subatomic level we all merge as one flowing expression of consciousness, in our dense physical world we are separate individuated beings. Often this comes right down to one against the other. Conflict, difficulty, power struggle are part of the daily program that makes us deal with others while we try to express our own truth. Inevitably we lose a degree of self-awareness and personal power.

We’re all going somewhere…though unfortunately most of us don’t know where. We grow up doing all that is expected of us and may even reach a moderate level of success. However, unless we have somehow become magically heart-fully and mindfully engaged in those building years, regardless of the success we experience, life can feel empty and void of meaning. We strike out searching for ways to touch something or to be touched by something meaningful.

The Journey Inward

For most people it begins with a lonely broken heart. A quest for true love usually ignites a need to get moving. The heart is a transmitter receiver with a built-in radar system always looking to receive a signal back from a resonant source. The mind inherently looks for problems to solve, to be useful and to improve the condition of humanity. The physical body yearns for health and comfort. The search can be lonely because it truly is an individual journey but if we open to our true world we see that we are not alone and that there are others wandering and searching for the same things we are. At least then we see that we can have companionship on our journey; like-minded adventures also striking out on a new path. Bravely we get to travel a road of discovery with others and share our experiences and teachings. It becomes easier. And so we learn we can embark on a metaphysical trek to find our whole complete selves with heart-minded consciousness in good company. We will discover our truest power, our deepest understanding of ourselves.

The first great spiritual truth is that all the answers, all the power and all the peace you desire lie within.  Our highest potential is to learn to communicate truly with your highest self, listen with real intuitive wisdom and find peaceful resilience and power deep within your own soul! The journey inward is littered with obstacles and “good reasons” to let sleeping dogs lie and they are stubbornly obstinate. Eventually you will learn to recognize the persistent obstacles that stand in your way and the tools you already have to get them out of your way. In time you will capture and lead the true, strong and beautiful life you came here to live!

Grail Ladies – The Loveliest in the Land


From June 28th to July 1st I had the extreme pleasure of attending Grail Lady Faire, an annual event presented by Grail Springs  in Bancroft ON. The Faire is organized to feature a variety of keynote speakers and workshop leaders offering grounded, high energy, and empowering presentations for women only! My friend, the incredible Mary Giuffre of FengSHe.org and I were asked to give a talk on Infinite Abundance and we were happy and proud to stand among such a fine lineup of presenters.  The talks were inspiring and informative as well as empowering and transformative for all the participants. But that was only one aspect of Grail Lady Faire!

Emerging Grace & Beauty

From comments I heard over the course of the week it was obvious that women walked away from the seminars altered. They felt motivated to start expressing their own truths more than ever before in all their relationships personal or business. They felt joyfully connected to their natural power as women and as the week went on it became very evident that they were embracing their femininity in more direct ways. Hair and summer gowns and dresses flowed easily, faces beamed with smiles and full bellied laughter and tensions released into the grounds and rippled over the waters of Grail Springs. It was living testament to the inspired vision of owner and our gracious hostess, Madeleine Marentette.

When women gather amazing things can happen…there is nothing like it when women get ‘it’! In the safety of the company of their own kind they reveal themselves; their worries and fears, their hopes and dreams and their glory. They begin to radiate with an intense fire that rises up from deep in their creative bellies. Their hands heat up and easily reach out to support one another in revelation and they hug (and cry) – a lot!  Their capacity for compassion is astounding, and in the space of a few days they renew themselves fully and completely. As they become restored in their immense power they begin to envision a new world that is about peace, love and passion!

Sharing The Bounty

As their heart ‘cups’ fill they dream of ways to share their renewed bounty with friends, family and humanity. It doesn’t take much to inspire women to love. When they are given the space and permission – like we were on the Sacred grounds of Grail Springs – to tap deeply into the wellspring of nurturing creative power always being offered by our beloved Mother Earth, women respond instantly. When we are held in the Great Mother’s arms we feel within our own hearts the resonant beat deep in the earth’s body and come to remember that we are never disconnected or abandoned by her. She is always in communion with us, we need only open our hearts and touch her with consciousness to receive the blessing of her love.

The Grail is intent on treading lightly upon the earth and their luxurious spa business policies revolve around earth sustainability and natural products. When the earth is honoured as deeply as She is at Grail Springs she responds abundantly. The grounds abound with enormous trees and perennial gardens, offering many spaces and opportunities for group and private ritual, ceremony and gathering. Throughout the week women gathered outdoors to exercise, dance, pray and discover themselves through a myriad of ways. By the process of sharing their stories, networking their businesses, and healing their wounded souls they came to restore their innate beauty and force of being! It was exciting to watch and it was my privilege and honour to read cards for some of these women as they quested into their personal potential and purpose. The heartfelt sincerity and soulful authenticity that emerged was spectacular and awe-inspiring.

Transformative Power that Heals

I am still sitting here, at home now, witnessing the continuing expansion in my own energy field and I reflect on the energy patterns I observed during the week. In the beginning, on occasion, I encountered energies of anger, worry and pain that can often cloud an otherwise beautiful aura, I saw the outside worldly patterns of masculine authority being worn protectively as a shield over a softly glowing field, and I felt the energetic probes of doubting, fearful minds reaching out suspiciously looking for safety and trust. But as the week progressed  I watched these same energies of fear, judgement and trepidation melt away and be replaced with an unparalleled harmonious radiance that emanated far out into the heavens. It is this kind of energy transformation that will heal the world. When and only when we each learn to respect and honour the sacred within one another as a pure reflection of Divine Intention will we be fully empowered to create the healing that is needed on a global scale at this time. Women have the ability to lead this movement forward into a new world if they can remember their brave spirits, their boundless energy, their unlimited resourcefulness and their beautiful, beautiful heart filled compassion.

From a Quantum perspective consider this: when introduced to high vibrating healthy vital molecules, slow densely vibrating molecules will always strive to vibrate at the higher frequency to experience health and vitality. It is our most natural state of being to be open, radiant, healthy and strong. As we consciously try to raise our vibration, activate our truest most authentic selves, and believe in our selves as light filled beings we create and manifest the opportunity to heal ourselves, each other, humanity and our earth simply through the magical process of synergistic attunement. And believe me this, the energy at Grail Spring is nothing short of magical and already in sacred alignment for our highest good al we need to do is to step into and receive the abundant power that arises freely when we allow ourselves to be all that we can be!

So hats off to you Grail Ladies! – You all became the loveliest in the land! Now all we have to do is stay that way!! Blessings to you all for all that you shared and a very grateful thank you to Madeleine, Dawna and all the staff of Grail Springs for the wonderful opportunity you provided us all with! A special thank you to Jordayn for your gifted hands and the unbelievably luxurious Seaweed Scrub! It was a glorious experience that will stick with me for a long, long time!

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!

Transcending Fear ~ Dancing Your Heart’s Song


We are sitting today at the threshold of unprecedented growth. Everything in the world as we know it to be is up to be transformed and transcended. Collectively we have entered the chrysalis stage of human development. At this point anything is possible. As we surrender our selves to this stage of transformation we must release the fear of no longer being as we formerly knew our selves to be. All of our ego identifications and ideals that belonged to our caterpillar selves must be surrendered to the new greater whole…and this feels risky.

Negotiating the Risk Factor

In actuality though, the risk is minimal. There is no real risk in evolution. In evolution things simply, almost imperceptibly, move to the next step. We either try to delay the process of evolution by focusing on what was and continue to uphold those old ideas or we learn to release our ego attachments and set our sights forward to the unknown potential of what is to come. It becomes a matter of looking forward or looking backwards, or more precisely, of looking outwards compared to looking deeply inwards. We tend to equate unknown with dangerous but this is only a projection of fear.

A very useful acronym for F.E.A.R is False. Experience. Appearing. Real. The experience is deemed false simply and truthfully because it hasn’t happened yet, so we actually project an outcome forward based on a negative past experience, which we assume makes it real because it happened a certain way in the past. Unfortunately, the error in the equation is that it doesn’t take into consideration all the awareness, skill and knowledge that has been learned between the old experience and the current time. All of these unacknowledged experiences have the power to create a completely new outcome. By laying the old expectation over the new possibility we create a future that mimics the patterns of the past – thereby ‘proving’ our fear to be valid. When we learn to view the future as a new adventure we get to co-create an entirely new possibility for ourselves.

A new mantra to use in place of the old acronym is Forgive. Everything. As. Required. Using this mantra whenever we feel the old emotional F.E.A.R. grab hold of our bodies and minds will serve to ‘re-mind’ us to leave the past in the past, forgive unconditionally what ever it is in us that wants to hold on to the past, and prompt us to let go without attachment for our highest good. Through forgiveness we may gratefully acknowledge the small part of us that is unsure, and yet in the same breath we can energize the visionary part of us that wants to move boldly forward toward the unknown.

Taking a Leap of Faith

In co-creation we solicit the assistance of the Divine Creative, the one with the plan. And I don’t mean the one being – I mean the one consciousness of which we are all part. In One consciousness we move into our perfect placement in the holistic holographic blueprint for humanity’s ever evolving nature. In Oneness, I simply do my part while everyone does his/her part. Ego and self-righteousness disappears in the perfection of the whole dynamic. While this is certainly happening already to a degree, the overall plan is currently reflecting distortions caused by individual attachments, control issues and fears. Through surrender to our mutual perfection we allow minute variations to occur which more accurately tune us into the right place, right time scenarios. The trick lies in being able to recognize the pivotal synergistic opportunities without projecting egotistical needs over top. To establish this clarity of intuition vs ego we need to make friends with our hearts. Love offers us the opposite vibration to fear.

The heart pulses out a frequency that is connected to and resonates with the sacred pulse of the universe and our earth. The Base Resonant frequency of Earth is our touchstone of reality that serves to keep us entrained in the harmonious working of all things great and small within our Universe. By releasing our minds from fear we are able to ‘keep up to speed’ with the quickening vibrational frequency of the Sacred Circuit of Universe>Earth>Heart>Cells. As our bodies are creating new cells by the second we allow our cellular construction to be built-in harmony with all that is; in new progressive programming instead of the old worn out tired and dis-eased programming of the past.

Stirrings of Light and Love

So here we sit, looking forward to a new day, or fearing the collapse of the old day. Truly this is a very apt comparison. We sit in the in between time between dark and light, we are in the dusk/dawn time of a new era. One era day is ending while a new one is simultaneously beginning. Trying to hold on to yesterday won’t help us and in fact puts us in a very surreal place of non-relevance. By keeping our attention on a day that has passed we cease being able to put our energies where they can be of assistance to the transition ahead. We lock ourselves into repetitive patterns, gradually becoming less and less effective; more and more jammed up, less and less able to hold the light of the new frequencies of the new era being birthed.

We are by nature visionary, and if you have been paying attention to your heart – even in the slightest, you’ll have noticed that in recent months you have been feeling somewhat dissatisfied (if not greatly frustrated) to be doing the same old same old. You are yearning for a new expression. Deep inside you are feeling the push/pull of something truly great wanting to come forward from within. A sacred resonance is being activated and you are at this point in the transformation only half-heartedly listening to your truth calling you forward. Your body, however, is desperately wanting to heed the insistent whisperings.

By attuning all of your attention to your heart you will begin to hear the transmissions of universal energy clearer and clearer. You will begin to move your body to dance with the rhythms of the universe. You will automatically be able to step into the right place and right timing to fill the position that is perfect. It may feel like a leap of faith when in truth it is only a step in the dance; the dance of your own creation for the highest good of all.

Becoming Butterflies of a Different Kind


I know that you’re probably already familiar with butterfly analogies. I realize that butterfly references flit and flutter rampantly throughout the new age movement of thought. And I get that you get that butterfly is symbolic of transformation and metamorphosis. But I’m going to go through it again all the same; in detail, slowly, because although people talk the talk there is hardly a more potent set of images available to us mere humans than through the magical  synergy of the butterfly story. The real magic however lies in what is not often talked about. We usually talk about the transformation from caterpillar to butterfly; from humble beginnings to exquisite soaring potential. As humans we tend to like happy endings and butterfly wings are just plain happy making! But the real message of hope lies in the frenetic, arduous, and determined journey of the lowly Caterpillar.

4 Stages of Development:

1. The Egg (Conception): You are conceived, from fertilized egg you come into being. You enter into this life’s experience with a bevy of information that will all contribute to the path you must walk in this lifetime. From the moment of your conception you are immersed in this matrix of information that will metabolize into your own being, forming your own unique life’s expression. You grow, develop, and become the miniature form that will execute your life’s journey this time around. The concept of you is created out of karmic lessons, genetic opportunity, parental influence, environmental conditioning, and knowledge. When you are ready you will emerge through a  challenging experience of birth. Your first real experience of fighting for your life,  you break through the barrier that has kept you safely protected, to move toward an independent expression of your self. And this is where the real fun starts!

2. The Caterpillar: From the moment he breaks away from his egg, the caterpillar begins to hunt for and devour huge amounts of food. His physical rate of growth is fantastic. Four separate times he literally grows out of his skin. 4 times he must shed his old skin and live into his new potential.  4 times his skin splits, dries up and 4 times he must wriggle free of it, leaving it behind if he intends to survive; which is of course, all that motivates him.

Likewise there are four times in a human life that we change our skin, dramatically yet without realizing it from a daily perspective; infancy, adolescence, adulthood, seniority. But at each stage, before we can rightfully embody the next stage of life we must learn the value of letting go of the ideas, dependencies, perspectives and belief systems that have been relevant to life to date. Some of these experiences are emotionally devastating, earth shattering, heartbreaking. Although we think that we would be happy to leave these behind us, often these times of life are the ones we allow to define us and to influence how we move forward in life. Our ultimate success will be determined by how well we let go of our most challenging attachments, forgive and move forward toward the next stage. The caterpillar grows larger and expands with each stage right up until his ‘death’ time as the pupa. Human tendency, however is to slow down our growth once we move into middle age. Half way through our life span we tend to stop taking in new ideas, we indulge in routine, cultivate patterns of sameness, and reject thoughts of new possibility. We approach our death time with low energy, little creativity, and resignation to the inevitable.

As human beings we also have 4 aspects that must be simultaneously developed as we grow; physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. It seems an immutable fact that we are destined to grow, our choices in reference to each of these aspects will determine how well and gracefully we progress. Each aspect supports the others and encourages the others to stretch and reach for a higher opportunity at all times.

3. The Pupa (Transformation): When the caterpillar enters the pupa stage a profound cellular transformation occurs that will eventually allow the caterpillar to experience life from an entirely different, more lofty perspective than he had previously known. It is during this stage of human development that many of us choose to rest, believing that life has reached its climax and now there is nothing but a steady decline in vitality ahead. Transitioning from mature adult into senior is an enormously difficult shift in physicality, mentality, emotionality and spirituality for most people. Many people choose to spend this part of their development being ill, tired, listless, lifeless, uninspired and mournful. As fully mature adults we too begin to change chemically. The pharmaceutical companies must love this stage of development as they seem to provide more and more prescription drugs that cater to aging bodies and metabolisms to say nothing of hormonal deficiencies  and other chemical imbalances that happen with aging. It’s an all out effort to keep the population from believing what they see happening in the mirror. There is a time of retreat, isolation, and reconstitution that has to happen to allow the shift forward into a beautiful seniority. Mankind must learn to surrender to his maturity and allow the alchemical transformation to happen so that he too may emerge in a splendid possibility and symbol for hope.

4. The Butterfly(Seniority): The caterpillar instinctively follows his biological clock and surrenders himself willingly to the pupa stage of growth; man not so much. We fight it every step of the way. Every where we look we see seniors trying to recapture their youth. It is not however, the seniors that are trying to look and act young that capture our hearts, it’s the ones that joyfully and exuberantly embrace their age, their knowledge and their wisdom. The seniors that we adore and respect are the ones who have gracefully allowed themselves to embody the fullest culmination of their lives. When our elders joyously express their enthusiasm for life with flair and panache we see the human butterfly emerging. They have surrendered to their transition and have gratefully, with humility and profound wisdom accepted and embodied the journey of the butterfly. They have miraculously surrendered to the divine order of life to experience without fear or worry the fullest expression possible. The human butterfly has learned to leave the worries of growing, building and survival behind him and lives out the remainder of his life dancing with the breezes, enjoying the nectar of the beauty of life and living for the moments that remain. Butterfly nurtures the spirit of others around him, giving hope and inspiring the next generation to live their fullest life possible.

Healing: Reconnecting to Your Sacred Geometry


The human being is a divine construction of geometrical shapes and patterns that resonate with all natural expressions of life. Each human-being holds within their DNA a signature coding and subsequent frequency that is in perfect alignment with his universe and potential. His hopes and dreams for his life will automatically manifest if he stays true to his original hologram. Life however, is full of contrived hopes and illusions that stymie our growth and potential expression, which if we believe in them will create fear, limitation and dysfunction.

In order to manifest the life of your dreams you have to become still, patient, and willing to heal whatever has come into your life that separates you from your potential. Only when you reconnect to the sacred geometry that presides over all life, to the order that governs your life, and to the order with which you have already co-creatively predetermined your place will you know yourself to be healthy and filled with a sense of well-being. That quiet, hidden divine order set the dream of your Self into your unconscious mind and it’s in the quiet hidden order of your sacred geometry that you will find the right path to follow to realize your dream. Your individual sacred geometry determines the building blocks of the stable, non-corruptible expression of your perfect dream.

This is a magical understanding, supported in esoteric wisdom. You may not want to hear it. That is to say that your left brain, goal setting side may not want to surrender to your inner inherent truth. We each have an inborn desire to be great and we have an outer fear that we aren’t good enough. We also though, have a deep knowing that we are profoundly powerful in our own right and yet feel that overwhelming fear of  vulnerability and weakness created by our environment, our karma and our life’s lessons. In a judgmental, critical, materialistic, media controlled world we too often see ourselves longing for everything we are told we should want if we want to be considered successful and powerful and yet at the same time we feel the niggling despair of not being able to achieve those prescribed goals.

Finding the Magic

Your dream lies in your truth. Your happiness lies in living your truth. Your truth is aligned in perfect wisdom with the Divine order of which you are an inseparable part. Your inborn desire to be great grows out of the perfection of your inherent construction; your sacred geometry. We intuitively understand the impenetrable strength that is divinely engineered into our most primitive unconscious being. A sense of personal weakness is created and experienced only when we witness ourselves as a product and reflection of the outside world. We lose our faith in our perfection when we start to identify with the crumbling impermanent world that has been built around us devoid of sacred heart and intelligence.

The magic happens when we allow our consciousness to reflect the magnificent ecological harmony of a forest, or the structure of a tiny sea shell, for in their reflection we know ourselves truly. In that moment we intuitively recognize the godliness locked within our own cellular being. Even looking upon ancient structures like the Parthenon, or magnificent cathedrals or the Sydney Opera House for example will fill us with a sense of awesome innate power because they too have been constructed using the same geometrical shapes, patterns and principles that we ourselves are built of. We naturally harmoniously resonate with all sacred constructions, and in the breath of a moment can be reawakened to our natural perfection.

Alchemy, Transformation & Perfect Manifestation

You are a magical, alchemical human being but you may not know it yet. You are as a butterfly wanting to become it’s full glorious self even when all you can feel is the sluggishness of the caterpillar. And just like the caterpillar, it will take an alchemical transformation to shift into a new way of being. Alchemy is based in understanding the laws that govern our universe and then stepping into the role of designer. By learning the necessary skills we can become the alchemist that seems to magically create the life of dreams and inspirations, from straw to gold.

Trust in the knowledge that there is an order in our Universe that is mathematically precise. All growth happens through the expansion of patterns.  The patterns are created by a sacred geometry that manifests throughout all natural expressions of form. We are part of those same expressions. The helix and swirling logarithmic spirals map out the basic structures that govern our physical universe. Simple geometric shapes and immutable patterns shape our physical reality. You, yourself are a mass of DNA helix on a cellular level, and swirling energy spirals that all operate with logical precision in resonance with universal patterns.
