Happy Spring!

I am sharing some of my FB posts, the kind of thing I don’t generally have time to duplicate here. ~PB

Happy Spring! I couldn’t sleep and was up till about 4, but had to be up at 8 for an early client (and of course someone took the latest slot tonight, too), but I did post numerous articles overnight about the Spring Equinox and the intensity of the energies this week or so, as the battle of Light and Dark continues on the planet….the Light will win, but the Dark are not going down without stirring up a lot of trouble, which just adds to everyone’s stress. Meditate and carry that 5D state with you as much as possible to avoid getting sucked down by the darkness that is leaving the planet. Here is a joyful image to help….

After my client, I treated myself to Blueberry and Banana pancakes, then went back to the studio to do some major spring cleaning, washing floors, etc. I take the sheets home to wash, and since I had not slept much, I decided to rest while I did laundry. When I “awoke” from a Doreen Virtue Archangel Michael and Metatron podcast (one I listen to when I feel out of balance) , I looked at the time and was delighted!

Later, I went for an evening stroll around the neighborhood before my late client. The sky was amazing! I circled around and headed towards the Arboretum.

Here are a few images of some crocuses in the back yard…not spectacular photos, but I love to see how persistent crocuses are, pushing up from the mulch and snow. To me, they represent exuberance and a lust for life! May we all have such perseverance in these changing times. May we all know that much of the beauty in our future comes from the seeds (and bulbs) we plant today!

Dancing on the 5D Tight Rope – Swirling Equinox Energies by Vera Ingeborg


After a couple of energetically a bit quieter days, where we had time to process stuff and feel into ourselves what still serves us for our journey ahead, the energies are really building up again now. The freak show continues… This can feel super draining and intensifies the feeling of not being able to make any decisions (I had already mentioned in my last blog). Not only the physical body is overreacting and coming up with all kinds of ascension symptoms and old chronic stuff to let go of. No, in addition, we are challenged to get out of the head and into the heart. And with the energies right now, that is not so easy and can feel like walking on a tight rope

 

 

The tight rope in this analogy is representing the 5D timeline and to the left and to the right down on the ground are the 3D/4D timelines that are trying to suck us back in and throw us out of the flow again, while we are learning to take our first steps in the new 5D reality. We are shifting between trust and mistrust, light and darkness, overthinking and overemotional reactions to no-mind states and deep inner peace. Depending on where you are at in your journey, the portions of these two extremes can differ.

 

“Many are now realizing and clearly feeling that the old way of living is not working anymore and are pushed to move on and to jump into the unknown.”

 

Many are now realizing and clearly feeling that the old way of living is not working anymore and are pushed to move on and to jump into the unknown. Core wounds are now addressed and triggered in a way that they no longer can be ignored. Your soul is now pushing you through this, to prepare you for an alternative reality outside of duality. And shortly before this big shift, the sensation of duality increases within us, ready to implode and dissolve, once we are fully anchored in 5D. Along with all of that the ascension symptoms pick up again, the flu, throat issues, blurry eyes, heart palpitations, bloating, insatiable hunger for mostly heavy food and at the same time no desire to drink water. Old chronic ailments are showing up again in a very fast way, so that they cannot be suppressed to be able to let them go for good. Also here. Listen within. What does your body and system truly need? Learn to listen what your phyisical body is telling you. It is constantly communicating with you and supporting you in taking the right steps. Does it want to be active or passive, move or sit still, eat or fast…?

 

 

Time Line Split is imminent

The timeline split is imminent beginning of next week with the Equinox on March 20, and that is why it feels like someone is pushing on the fast forward button – to make sure everything is cleared out before the big shift. Now, that does not mean that everyone will shift into 5d next week. We are simply presented with the opportunity to do so – we will reach that intersection point to switch our reality. And that is only possible, when fear patterns we still carry are completely dissolved and transformed.

“The best thing to do is taking space. Space for yourself. Space to feel into you. What is the energy telling you to do?”

So the best thing to do until then is taking space. Space for yourself. Space to feel into you. What is the energy telling you to do? Listen with your heart. Where does the energy pull you? What are the energetic impulses? Your ego mind does not understand the language of energy and will not come with you into 5D. It will transform into a free spirit, that only perceives and sets intentions. (I had written about that in many previous blogs, too). So, no matter if it is your mind overreacting or you are feeling overemotional – it is most importantly to just tell yourself that this is only energy running through, nothing you should pay special attention to. Act it out constructively, let it pass, be grateful for the release.

“If you are not in this ascension wave into 5D yet, there is nothing to be upset about. There is no pressure. If you put yourself under pressure, then this is simply a sign of fear and mistrust in your own process. That is not the frequency you want to be in.”

If you are not in this ascension wave into 5D yet, there is nothing to be upset about. The timelines will still be running in parallel for the upcoming months, offering various intersection points to make the shift. And that is also important to understand: There is no pressure. If you put yourself under pressure, then this is simply a sign of fear and mistrust in your own process. And that is not the frequency you want to be in – that is exactly what prevents 5D. 5D only opens up when in a permanent state of full trust and no-mind. That does not mean to become lazy and stop your inner work. It just means that your journey is your journey, your process is your process, and every single step is important. There is no bypassing, and patience with yourself and appreciation of yourself for moving so bravely through this is required. Most importantly: Don’t compare your own process to others – each journey is unique, each one of us has unique talents, gifts and tasks. Go with your own flow, don’t try to adapt to others.

 

 

Triggers, Projections and Victimhood

Triggers are everywhere right now, because you are now entering the gateway with the highest energetic potential available this month to get things cleared and dissolved. In addition, we are permanently confronted with the collective fear energies and we are picking them up. These are all old energies of fighting and running away. When this happens, we tend to fall into old patterns, are projecting the intense collective energies on people that are closest to us and can easily lose ourselves in victimhood. In these moments it is really helpful to take a step back and realize, that the only person responsible is you. And you are the only person that can change it. Your experience merely reflects your own energetic state of being and level of frequency. That is what you resonate with and that is what your environment is mirroring back to you. Also here – your head will not understand this and will try to keep you in judgment, blame, guilt, shame etc. which will prolong the experience in 3D and 4D. Shift into your heart. FEEL instead of THINK. That is when you immediately feel the change and shift upwards.

 

 

Listen to your Heart

So, listening within and listening to your heart is key now to prepare for the transition. Focus on your heart space and feel into the energy. Energy never lies, while the mind – not capable of understanding energetic communication, can come up with tons of interpretations and stories around pure facts.

 

“Listening to your heart is key now to prepare for the transition. Energy never lies, while the mind – not capable of understanding energetic communication, can come up with tons of interpretations and stories around pure facts.”

An easy way to get into feeling mode is by focusing on your senses. Just stop, breathe and go into the physical sensations. What do you feel, taste, smell, hear, see around you? Experience your environment. You cannot think and feel at the same time, so this simple exercise shifts you immediately into a state of no-mind.

It is about becoming child-like again. Coming into the moment, not thinking about yesterday or tomorrow, do what you love. Your inner child can be the best advisor on this journey. And your inner child will fearlessly go into that adventure of dancing on the rope with you.

And don’t forget: The only guru you need is you. You got it all inside of you. And by feeling within, learning the language of energy and to listen to your own intuition is key for 5D. Stop searching for your answers outside of you. Nobody can tell you what your next steps are. Only you know. That does not mean to not reach out to others and to share or vent. But: A good coach or teacher will never give you the answers, he or she will only give you the tools so that you can find the answers and your own truth for yourself.

 

Although the energies are very intense – never forget: They are here to serve you, to propel you and provide you with momentum, to be able to grow and transform in the fastest manner. That is only possible when we embrace this experience, recognize that it is not meant to punish us but serves us to raise our frequency quickly.

Happy Equinox and keep dancing on the rope! It will become a highway soon the more you learn navigating 5D.

Planting the Garden of Your Soul: A Message for Equinox from Archangel Gabriel by Shanta Gabriel

Planting the Garden of Your Soul:
A Message for Equinox from Archangel Gabriel
by Shanta Gabriel | Mar 16, 2017

 

Dear Ones,

 

Planting the Garden of your Soul invites the Grace of the Angels to work in your daily life. This focused activity demonstrates your desire to co-create what you need to harvest a more bountiful future.

The northern hemisphere will experience the Spring Equinox on March 20 at 3:39 am PDT (Monday, March 20, 2017 at 10:29 UTC.), kicking off a season of new birth and renewal. If you are in the southern hemisphere, planting your inner garden now will allow you to create a winter focus that will bloom in its proper time. Equinox is the optimum time to plant your personal garden of powerful intentions within your being. This timely action will bring great rewards as you till the rich and fertile soil of your soul, elevate your thoughts and activate new life within and around you.

The Equinox is always a moment of Profound Balance — a time to reassess your life and choose anew. When you plant clear intentions for your most empowered future, the manifestation of your dreams will become your new reality.

.

What does it mean to plant the Garden of your Soul?

It is really very simple to plant your personal garden. What are the qualities you most want to see manifest in your life? What are your goals and dreams for a joyous future? What needs have to be met so you can be happy? These are the seeds to plant within the garden of your being so you can create a new structure for your life.

When you plant the seeds of growth and renewal, it can be a fun, creative and positive way to promote a joyous, abundant life. Consider those things you most want to have thriving in your interior garden. Maybe you would like to plant the fertile seeds that lead to Abundant Prosperity? Perhaps you want to empower the seeds of Harmony in all your relationships? What about planting the seeds for Health and Well-being deeply in your base chakra so they can grow with zest and vibrancy?

The soil of joyous potential exists within you and awaits your attention.

Are you too busy to plant your Soul’s garden?

These vast exalted ideas surprisingly require very little time during your busy life, full of commitments and deadlines. In fact, the small amounts of time you give to planting and nurturing your interior garden will enhance every area of your life with a bountiful return. It is said that when a person takes one step towards the Divine, this Higher Power will take ten steps towards you.

Let your imagination soar as you bring forth those magical qualities in which you wish to live. Nothing is too large for you to dream to manifest a happier life. As you play with this process, you are co-creating a field of unlimited potential within and around you. When you dream big and feel the joy of it, your vibrational frequency will be uplifted and your energy field expands. This allows doors to open that you have not imagined possible. It is your open mind, and a heart unencumbered by doubt and self-criticism, that attracts new growth and evolution into your life.

Planting the Garden of your Soul inspires great support from the seen and unseen world so you can live life in a more inspired way. When you allow yourself to be a part of this co-creation, all your needs can be met with Grace and Ease.

How to plant the Garden of your Soul


Since every new project requires some thought and planning, when you begin your inner garden, make it creative and fun.
The visual images that you choose will greatly enhance your ability to manifest them. It could be a beautiful work of art with many colors, magazine pictures or a painting. The shape your interior garden takes might be a pattern, like a spiral, that inspires you. You could decide just to make a list of those qualities of consciousness you want to experience in your life. The action of writing will assist the energy of your garden by taking your dreams from the inner to the outer level.

The Angels of Creativity are available to work with you in this project, and can inspire you so it will be fun. When your inner spirit is stimulated in this way, new life flows into your mind and heart, and you feel uplifted. This increased energy flow attracts more joy and you feel happier, which in turn, brings more creative ideas and a sense of Well-being. Your life will begin to change in surprising ways.

When you see old patterns of thought and action manifesting, and you begin to feel stuck in problematic energies, consider them to be compost for your new inner garden. Ask the Angels working in your life to help you pull these weeds and transmute old ways of behavior with Divine Light. This will help feed the garden of your soul with loving energy. Soon you will see the new sprouts of different ways of being.

Rejoice in this vibrant growth knowing that as you respond differently to old situations, you will receive fresh, positive results in every area of your life. By focusing a little bit every day on what you want to see manifest in your life, you provide a new structure so your interior garden will thrive. Remember that as you plant the seeds of new consciousness into your garden of Pure Potential, you are grounding the Creative Essence into the Earth. Through this action of bringing beautiful qualities of consciousness into your world, you become a bridge from Heaven to Earth.

Bask in the Sunlight of Divine Illumination


The Garden of your Soul has amazing potential to bring you the life you want to experience.
Even the willingness to open yourself to new thoughts and behaviors attracts assistance in ways you never knew existed. This beautiful garden thriving within you will become a magnet for your new soul community, as many people are attracted your inner balance and joy. In this way your new growth and the thriving space within you reach out to bless the world. As your garden comes into fruition, you will find your life nourished in bountiful ways.

The company of Heaven awaits you as you begin planting these seeds for your new life. Bask in the sunlight of Divine Illumination. Breathe it in deeply and let it nurture the new growth within you. Know the Angels will joyously assist you in weeding out the old ways that no longer work so your garden will thrive with new life.

You are never alone. You are being guided as you open to a new way of being. Let all the frantic activity in your life drop away as new Balance and divinely inspired action takes root within the garden of your life. This simple process will enrich your life’s purpose, so your next steps become very clear.

There is a flowering of new life beginning within your heart, and new balance flourishing in your life. Allow yourself to be inspired and nourished as you plant the Garden of your Soul. Remember that as you empower these exalted spiritual qualities and plant them into your consciousness, they become living fields of energy that will enhance every area of your life.

As you look at the flowering of Nature around you, it can remind you that the same beautiful new growth is taking place within your very being. You are a precious being, worthy of all you aspire to receive and so manifest. Know deep within your heart that all is well. And so it is.

MEG BENEDICTE: “Shadow’s Last Stand — Equinox Stargate”

MEG BENEDICTE: “Shadow’s Last Stand — Equinox Stargate” | The Circle of the Dolphins

Crystal Blast

During last year my intuitive radar would often pick up a powerful energy blast coming in March 2017. It felt stronger than anything we had experienced yet. It was a massive ‘blip’ on the radar screen.We are mid-way through March now, and the intensity can feel overpowering at times. Ramping up this week is the rare conjunction of Uranus and Eris on Friday, March 17th.  It began last year with the first two meetings on June 8, 2016 and Sept. 25, 2016. This Friday we will experience the third and final Uranus-Eris conjunction. This rare transit has been the catalyst for so much chaos and destabilization in the world.  It is breaking apart rigid limitations and dissolving the veils of illusion. It occurs just 2 days before the powerful Equinox Stargate on March 20th.

I’ve been ‘holding space’ as a gatekeeper at the Equinox Stargate since Sunday, and the collective field is whipped up right now. The energy is quite discordant. It is a last-ditched effort to reclaim control of the planetary grid by the dark forces. The Equinox Stargate is now open and altering the entire landscape of reality on planet earth. Pay attention to the shifting waves of consciousness rippling through the earth plane. Focus on LOVE!

The crystalline frequencies offer a vast network of galactic communication to Soul Presence, Soul Groups and the sacred Monad. Maintain your conduit of Light Language to higher dimensional realms of existence. The Equinox provides a powerful momentum that propels us beyond the control of the shadow regime.

Down thru the ages, they have been called many names – dark forces/demonics/archons/fallen souls – but their time on Gaia is coming to an end. The Wayshower Light Warriors have incarnated on planet earth at this momentous time to clear them away. You may have encountered them in numerous ways as you awakened to your true divine self. As your awareness increases into higher frequencies, you start to notice/feel their dark presence around you. Your divine self/soul presence is immune to their manipulation or aggression. Your Light is your power!

They operate in the background, hidden from 3D human vision. They are masters of holograms and create innumerous artificial scenarios or realities to serve their agenda. These dark beings cannot survive in the 3D plane without your energy. They are parasites, energy vampires that live on low-vibratory frequencies such as fear, anxiety, depression, pain and suffering, sexual perversion.

They control the planetary collective and human thoughts/emotions through a complex dark web, or matrix of enslavement. Not only does the dark web become entangled within your energy body, it has been blocking the galactic photonic Light from entering the earth plane for centuries. Human souls have been re-cycling in the lower 3D-4D astral plane, disconnected and split off from divine Source Creator, functioning as food for their survival.

The matrix grid is programming the ego with manipulating thought forms/emotional outbursts/destructive behavior into the primal reptilian brain stem, vagus nerve and amygdale. The majority of your thoughts are not your own consciousness. The matrix simulation was designed to keep you in lower-frequencies of despair, victimization, addiction and hopelessness. Your natural life force has been siphoned, your Light has been drained and your energy field has become fragmented from astral attacks and inserted with portals/doorways leading to the parasites. All of this changed in the year 2012! On 12/21/12 the dark forces lost control of the matrix program. With higher awareness and divine presence, all can be cleared away.

For the past four years, the Light Warriors have been applying their divine knowledge and abilities to break free of the enslavement matrix. Often called the Wayshowers, we’ve been operating as frequency generators of divine galactic Light, shattering the dark control grid so Gaia and humanity can become sovereign beings. This is why you are here!

The coming Equinox Stargate acts as a threshold point for Gaia and humanity to pass through the multi-dimensional ‘eye of the needle’. As we shed lower vibratory density, our souls rise in harmony with the newly birthed 5D Gaia. It is the final hour for the dark forces. They cannot access or survive in the higher planes of unity consciousness. We are witnessing their final defiant act of survival.

United Light Warriors are dissolving the dark web and hidden agenda into the penetrating galactic photonic Light. The Equinox is the next tipping point of cosmic Ascension!

You are being prepared for the upcoming Equinox Stargate upgrades arriving on March 20th.  This week is a powerful threshold point into higher dimensional consciousness. As the out-dated energies are dropping away, you are rising into a unified state of Oneness!

Join other Light Warriors from around the world to step into the Equinox Stargate and perform divine Global Activations on Monday, March 20th at 12pm PT. Register at: https://newearthcentral.com/?p=15000

Lovingly, Meg

A Spring Equinox Message: The Gifts of Druidry in the World March 20, 2016

A Spring Equinox Message: The Gifts of Druidry in the World
March 20, 2016

Today marks the Spring Equinox, Alban Eiler, a time of new beginnings, of the balance between light and darkness, between summer and winter, between hope and despair.  Given the energy of today, and the challenges before us, I’d like to take some time to frame what I see as some of  druidry’s gifts to the world–the things that a druid path can do for the land and its peoples. I’m particularly  motivated to write this post today because today marks the end of my 10th year as a druid and I am moving into my second decade along this path–and so I’d like to share some of the insights I’ve had along the way.  I want to start with a disclaimer–as the adage goes, if you ask 5 different druids what druidry means to them, you’ll get 10 different answers. I am not speaking on behalf of all druids or for all of druidry, but here today, I am speaking my own truth and path, as I am apt to do on this blog 🙂.

 

Early Sunrise

Look around at the land and waters that–in whatever shape that landscape is in.  At one time, that land was deeply loved and respected. Humans who lived there cultivated a sacred connection and awareness with it. All indigenous cultures have cultivated such relationships, and all of our bloodlines trace back to some indigenous culture or another if we go far enough back. Before industrialization, or even agriculture, our relationship with the land was much, much different. Our ancestors, rooted in the places they were, knew every inch of the edge of the river and how to build rafts to navigate the rocks and fish. They knew the medicine of root and stem and seed. They knew where the harvests came at what time of the year, and how not to take too much. They knew the names of the trees, the spirits of the animals, and were intimately connected with their surroundings. They knew that their own survival depended on the delicate balance that they had the privileged and responsibility of maintaining. The plants evolved with humans, so much so, that many of the most food and medicine-rich plants depend on us for survival, for nurturing, for scattering their seeds. How did that happen? Over countless millennia, we evolved together, creating mutual dependencies. This is why Pennsylvania forests used to be 30% chestnut–that wasn’t by accident, that was by human design (for more on this, see M. Kat Anderson’s Tending the Wild). Imagine being the land, the spirits of the land, and holding those memories of the time before.

 

And then, many things changed and time moved on. Knowledge and sacred connections lost, so much so that today, most people can’t identify more than a handful of plants or trees and do not even have basic knowledge of the world around them.  Instead, humans today in industrialized countries are sold a myth, the myth of progress ,strong as any other of religious belief, and embraced with the same kind of furor (see John Michael Greer’s works, particularly Not the Future we Ordered for more on this perspective). Wrapped up the myth of progress are myths of the importance of consumer goods, of smartphones and electronics that must be replaced every two years, of chemical-ridden pesticides that lace our foods and invade our bodies.

 

Supporting that myth allows the whole-sale pillaging of the land and its inhabitants. Supporting that myth allows national forests to be fracked, the same patches of forest to be repeatedly logged for two centuries, our waterways to be filled with poisons, our mountaintops removed. These are things that I witness every day here, in my beloved Appalachian mountains in Western PA. If relationships to the land were a pendulum, we humans of toady have swung so far in the other direction from our indigenous ancestors, or even those living closer to the land a few centuries before.

 

Our lands, waters, and plant spirits still hold the memories of those who came before, of the relationships that once were cultivated.  There is, among them, a great mourning and loss collectively. They hold memories of humans who used to care for them so carefully. Here in the Americas, at least here in Pennsylvania, that sacred relationship between land and human was abruptly severed several centuries ago with the driving out of the native peoples and the re-settlement of Pennsylvania by those of European decent. With the new humans, the last centuries saw tremendous amounts of pillaging and destruction, fueled by the myth of progress.

 

Since that time, and to today, the myth of progress changes our behaviors and relationship radically with nature. Humans, here in the US, now spend 87% of their time indoors and another 6% of their time in automobiles or other forms of enclosed transit.  That means just seven percent of the average American’s life today is spent outside. And of that seven percent, how much is spent mowing the grass? Spraying dandelions? Walking on pavement among tall buildings?  How much of that seven percent is spent with our heads in our phones rather than looking around us?  And beyond these statistics, I think there’s a general disregard for life, for nature that is dominant in our collective cultural understanding.

 

Druidry, I believe, is one good sign that the pendulum is starting to swing back in the right direction. Humans are once again are seeking that ancestral connection to the land that is still in our blood, and in the memories of the forests, the stones, the rivers. Learning how to see, and interact, with nature is critical to helping that pendulum swing back in the other example.  As a very simple example, last week, I was walking back from campus after teaching, and I came across a cluster of cut-back bramble bushes. I looked at those canes, getting just ready to bud, with tiny tufts of green coming from out of the buds, and I could see the promise of spring there. I was looking forward to the Equinox, and also feeling the sadness at seeing things budding a month earlier than usual due to climate change. The tips of the canes, too, held a tremendous surprise–when sliced longways (which someone had done recently to trim them), the cane of the blackberry bush forms a 5 pointed star, a pentagram, not so dissimilar from the pentagram I found in the chickweed plant some years ago. This cultivation of the sacred is, in part, observing sacred patterns of nature, unfolding around me, on my daily walk home from campus. And noticing the nature–the birds, the trees, appriciating them and knowing their names. And its more than patterns–the bramble holds medicine, food, protection–and as a druid, I’ve worked to learn about all of its gifts.  As I look in awe at the bramble, I wonder how many people have cultivated such a sacred relationship with the land in this area? That even would look at the bramble and be willing to look closer?

 

Spirit of Chickweed Painting

As a Druid, you might be the first adult person in several generations to see that land with something other than indifference, profit, or going into the land for the sole purpose of taking. As a druid, you might be the first to enter those lands again, in a long time, to see those lands not only in appreciation, but as sacred spaces. You might be the first who is willing to tend those lands again, to help heal, to help regenerate, to give rather than pillage and take. When I, as a druid, walk into the forest, I am often aware that I am reconnecting with lands that have not been thought of, or engaged with, as sacred for a very long time. What a gift it is to the land, to really see it. To interact with it. To hold it sacred. To be willing to learn and grow with it–in it–through it. To walk and see the buds on the trees, to see the medicine growing up out of the cracks of the sidewalks. I’m not just talking about the wild places here, but all places. You can sense the sacredness of the soil, even below the buildings that sit on it. You realize that there is no unsacred space, that all spaces and places, regardless of their damage, are still part of this great living earth–as you, too, are a natural part of it.

 

For many druids, interacting with the land in a sacred way is one of your gifts to the world–and it is an incredibly powerful gift that takes a lifetime of exploration to truly understand and realize.

 

The act of opening yourself up to these experiences are, for many, the first steps down the druid path. As one of the Archdruids in AODA, I spend a lot of time talking with new druids on the path and mentoring druids who are just starting their journey and studies. I read letters that they write that tell us about why they want to become druids, what they hope to gain from druidry. So many times, it seems that rebuilding that connection to nature is one of the key reasons that they join. To many people, when they first find druidry, are excited.  They often say, “This is the path that describes me, as I already am!”  This gives them a word that finally fits their self-image, the person that they are becoming with each passing breath and each cycle of the sun and moon. And every one of those letters, without fail, talks about reconnecting to the natural world!

 

Another tragic part of the myth of progress, asks us to give our power, especially our creative gifts, up and to let others provide us entertainment.  It saps our creative energy, and we are disempowered as creative thinkers and doers in the world.  Therefore, a second major gift of druidry, I believe, is regaining that creative force, the flow of awen, and using it for good in our own lives and in the lives of others in the world. Even the act of meditation alone allows us to “clear” our minds; the AODA’s sphere of protection or OBOD’s light body exercises allow for the Awen to flow within us again. And we desperately need these creative responses here and now–through music, poetry, artwork, dance, painting, crafts, the written word–to help us make sense of, process, and respond to what is going on. The creative arts help us make sense of the world and what is happening and can reach people meaningfully and deeply in ways that we otherwise could not.  At least in my own experience, my path in the bardic arts helps give a voice to those who cannot speak for themselves and to cultivate reconnection through my writings on this blog, my artwork, my teaching, and more.

 

Get out into the world!

The world is changing quickly around us, and for many, darkness appears to be settling in. Things are growing more frenzied, more desperate, more terrifying. The true tolls of incessant pillaging of the planet are now so visible and known, and will continue unfold in the years and generations to come. Just a few weeks ago, we passed the 2 degree threshold that so many have said, over the years, that we shouldn’t pass.  Those in denial are, well, still in denial, and the temperature keeps rising. But the rest of us must understand and work with our own grief, our own responses. Many come to druidry because they are looking for some path forward through this mess, and Druidry helps them take such a path, a path deeper into the landscape, into their own creative gifts, and through the difficulty that we are all facing.  Druidry, perhaps, gives us hope and reconnection–exactly the kind of thing, I believe, we need as we move forward into this unknown and terrifying territory. Many druids find themselves integrating spiritual responses with other kinds of responses–permaculture, for example, is a fantastic “get your hands dirty” compliment to this path (and certainly, its a big part of my own druid practice).

 

To wrap up, some of the greatest gifts I see of druidry are (in true triad form):

  • A gift to the land through the cultivation of a sacred relationship, awareness, and active healing work, but also through recognizing, confronting, and doing something about the predicament we face as a planet.
  • A gift to its people through the cultivation of the creative human arts, to give the land voice in the world through music, story, song, artwork, dance and more.
  • A gift to ourselves and to the nurturing of our souls, to give us tools, and outlets of response and the freedom to engage in bardic arts that reconnect humans and their landscape.

 

Finding the druid path is a gift, a blessing, and the ramifications of it go well beyond just ourselves. Often, for the first few years down this path, you are absorbing, like a sponge, all that you can–and things are very inward focused. You have a lot of healing work to do on your own inner landscape, and that’s critical work to do, work that will take a lifetime. But at some point, that sponge becomes full, and you are now ready to reverse the process, and give those gifts back to thee world. Druidry is a gift to the world, if we make it so. And on this sacred day, when so many things hang in the balance, it helps us re-balance our own lives, hearts, and souls.

Weekly Forecast: March 14-20, 2016 ~contributed by Hillory Skott


Weekly Forecast: March 14-20, 2016
~contributed by Hillory Skott

March 14-20, 2016 is the true new beginning of the year. The Spring Equinox on
March 19 PST is the first day of the Astrological new year. Now is the time to plant
the seeds. Set your intentions carefully. In the next three months you will be blessed
with much energy to change your world. Take stock of your life this week. What would
you love to see happen this year? How do you wish your life to change?

On Wednesday all or nothing Pluto and shoot for the moon Jupiter are sliding into
fortunate alignment.  It will happen again June 26th this year, and then not again
until 2024.  Pluto lets us leave and Jupiter wants us to go. When dancing in a trine
this should be nothing less than life enhancing expansion. Jupiter and Pluto are truth
seekers, constantly growing, reaching, unearthing, expanding.  Otherwise what’s the
point right?

Wednesday is a most auspicious day to pitch your idea.  Even if only to the Universe.
Once you make the decision to change change happens.  Being nothing less than your
true and total self will do.  Really real is what we all need to be to be our happiest selves.
With Pluto and Jupiter aligning what your needs are will be very clear.  Do your best to
stay humble while you feel your life magically expanding beyond old limitations and
boundaries. There are new rules. There are no rules.

The arrival of the Aries Sun on the Equinox will assist you in assisting yourself-it’s time
to toot your horn. The Equinox is a great day to start all things new. Big changes are
well supported now, do what you know you need to do. Do it with confidence and
commitment.

My favorite Equinox activity is making a collage, or a vision board. Find some magazines
and clip photos, or even draw or write out your ideas. This should represent what you
intend to create in your life this year.

So many little details on my vision boards have come true that I get excited thinking
about what will manifest next. And, inspired to think even bigger, idealize even more.
Needless to say, vision boards are worth the effort. The focus and creativity used to
make them help aim your power to create in a tangible direction.

Do take time to be still around the Equinox-write a note to yourself about your
progress and how you can enlarge your world. What does the world need from you?
Offer your perspective, your kindness, your energy and attention and see what comes
back to you. Now is the time to start.

The light of day now begins to outshine the darkness. Real progress will be made.
Don’t underestimate your power to live the life of your dreams. You have come here
to be all you can be. Go forth and prosper on all levels. Remember,
“You are neither weak nor incapable. You are the source of unlimited power. This is the supreme reality. Understanding this truth is the goal of life.” Amma

Solar Eclipse/Equinox Combo Opens Portal of Divine Potential by D.L. Zeta | Celestial Vision

Solar Eclipse/Equinox Combo Opens Portal of Divine Potential
by D.L. Zeta | Celestial Vision

 We stand at a crossroads of the old and the new. This is a crossroads that offers the opportunity for awakening and rebirth through a portal of divine potential that has opened before us. This portal extends well into the rest of 2015 and will transport us into the next phase of our personal and collective evolution.

This powerful and unique portal opens with today’s total solar eclipse in the final degree of Pisces followed closely by the spring equinox. Astrologically speaking, this is the most powerful period of 2015 and today is the most intense day of this period. You may experience a powerful release and feeling of completion during this time followed by the sense of new doorways opening in consciousness.

Patriarchal vs. Divine Feminine

The language of endings and beginnings is very clear in this eclipse/equinox combo. The destructive, soul crushing patriarchal perspective that has ruled this planet for millennia is falling away as the era of the divine feminine ushers in a time of greater love, compassion and intuition. Spirituality and creativity are major themes of this shift which represents a further movement into the new time on planet Earth. We experience the higher frequencies of this shift and the new, gentler qualities it brings to the extent that we embrace our feminine side.

Total Solar Eclipse/Equinox Combo

The total solar eclipse at 29° Pisces is magnified by the spring equinox. A solar eclipse acts as a supercharged new moon. A Pisces new moon, especially one on the border of Aries, represents endings and new beginnings. An eclipse in the final degree of Pisces in the last degree of the zodiac brings entire cycles of time to completion and ushers in major life changes. The final degree of any zodiac sign is a significant point that offers unique potentials as well as destabilizing energies.

The energies of the solar eclipse will extend into September and beyond but they will be especially potent in the upcoming lunar cycle. A total lunar eclipse at 14 degrees Libra takes place April 4, punctuating the powerful influence initiated by this solar eclipse. Both of these eclipses are total eclipses which are relatively rare events. Many eclipses are partial or penumbral. Total eclipses are by far more potent, casting a powerful sphere of influence.
Your Astrology Chart Reveals an Eclipse’s Impact in Coming Months

To understand areas of your life that will be impacted by the energies of this eclipse over the next several months, study your astrology chart. Examine where Pisces is in your chart. This is the part of your life where you will be releasing and making room for something new. Find Aries in your chart. This is where the new will be arriving. Houses in astrology reveal the areas of our life most impacted by an eclipse. Natal planets, progressions and other aspects conjuncted by the eclipse bring further insights into what is being asked of you during this time.

Lunar Nodes Reflect your Spiritual Purpose|

The lunar nodes and this week’s Uranus-Pluto Square figure prominently into the astrology of the spring equinox.

The placement of lunar nodes in a chart point toward our destiny and purpose in this lifetime. Our south node reflects gifts and baggage we brought with us into this lifetime while the north node reveals the nature of our intentions this time around. In this week’s mix, the lunar nodes provide us with the impetus needed to immediately set about making the sweeping changes needed to move toward our spiritual purpose. As we sit in meditation during this time we’re able to receive a clear vision of our purpose and the present-moment potentials that allow us to take significant steps in the fulfillment of this purpose.

Eclipse Energies and Conscious Reality Creation

This is a time to summon forth all we have learned in recent years about consciously creating realities. Hold in awareness that you gravitate toward whatever you focus on. In a sense you become whatever you focus upon. Now is the time to examine where you place your energy and focus and to cultivate thoughts aligned with the realities you wish to create. Begin with your inner realities, keeping in mind that whatever you incubate within your own consciousness you make more accessible to all others.
Surround yourself with positive, uplifting and loving environments. Consciously choose the people and activities in your life, holding in awareness that we tend to become like the people we spend time with and the energies in which we immerse ourselves.

Radiating Love to All-that-is

Send love and light to others and to all-that-is. As we shift to a higher vibration, we hold a space for others to shift to higher frequencies. As we heal ourselves, we open a space for others to heal. The love we radiate outward impacts the universe in unseen ways, gathering energy on the inner planes to fuel the revolution of oneness that is awakening us to deeper levels of the new time.

Stepping into the Portal of Divine Potential

We can expect to see new themes and patterns emerging in coming days, weeks, and months as our lives come into sync with the new flow and direction of evolutionary awakening and powerful new beginnings looming on the horizon.

We are witnessing the closing days of a cosmic cycle. It’s time to reflect on the passing away of an old way of life that has shaped us up to this point. As we embrace and release who we have been as well as opportunities missed and taken, we turn our focus to a new and expansive present leading to a future we have encountered in dreams and imagination. Cosmic energies over the last few years set events into motion that now empower us to take our first step into this divine portal of potential that is now opening, inviting us to begin our ascent into the new time.

Thoughts from your Hostess of Light March 2015 a message from Gillian MacBeth-Louthan

Thoughts from your Hostess of Light March 2015
a message from Gillian MacBeth-Louthan

Tuesday, 10 March, 2015

As we all walk forward in time from the battlefield of winter, we are weary confused and on guard. Are we prepared for theses shifts to come in whatever name and form they desire? The weather has more moods than a teenage girl on a full moon prom date.  How do we prepare for energies that no not respond to our prayers and well wishes? It is obvious that man cannot tame the goddess of winter for she demanded homage on bended cold knee. What will the goddess of spring ask of this year?

As the Goddess of Spring stretches herself and flourishes underground, she takes all of us to a hidden entrance that resides in a place that has the ability to camouflage itself from prying eyes. Like a magic door hidden in a tree trunk or a portal between worlds in the middle of a blueberry patch guarded by feral stickers matters not, the worlds between the worlds will be seen. Reflections where time bends and dimensions parley will show what is invisible.

The dimensions dance together like an aurora borealis changing form and colors at a glance. We become dizzy and disoriented as living magic is  seen between realms but only for glance. The human eye changes in context and form as it sees thru cones of time with great exactness.

Time once disrupted comes back around like a fatigued astronaut with a  wee bit of space wobble. First you see it then you don’t, as All matter shifts in accordance with divine thought. ‘Believe it and you will see it’ is the mantra of Spring 2015.

As we enter the eclipses of spring the energies will ask even more of us. On the spring equinox March 20 we will have a total solar eclipse aligned with the energy of 13 and all that magical doorway entails. Portals open and close, Do not get caught in-between.  Aries packs a punch as what is fiery and explosive in nature shows its true colors. Passions erupt as does Mother Earth.

On 4-4-2015 we have our first full moon lunar eclipse of 2015. this energy escorts us into the first level of the Magdalene Rose portal of 2015 (4-4-2015) for it is a true 8:8 frequency. On 4-5 we enter the Holy Gates of Easter allowing multi-dimensional alignment with our Oversoul/ master-self/ and the silent teachings of a very loud inner voice.

A seed can only be sown when it is given in free will. Allowing it to search for hallowed ground and start the process of releasing the divine blueprint of life to the earth. Everything we do or do not do seeds the future. All seeds are about believing in the invisible harvest. Holding the image of bountiful fruition in your heart and head until it is finally seen on Earth.

When that harvest is birthed from your seed of belief it is then necessary to share that bounty with others. To take part of your field of manifestation and cut off the corners of it and give it freely so another can start the seed of belief process as well. Sharing their bounty with others and so on and on….

Listen to the voice of the universe inside of you as it asks more and more of you. As it asks you to give and give and give, like a wellspring without end. The universe has its watermark upon your soul and cells. You can never out give the Creator.
