Full Moon : Friday 29th January

Full Moon : Friday 29th of January
Moon in Leo - Fire
Full Moon – La Luna Llena…

Constant chanting, prayer, songs of Earth Mother while we 3 goddesses of the Universe prepared for 11:18 that evening. When the Moon and the Sun would align, be in conjunction, exactly 180 degree’s apart from each other. The Ying and Yang, the balance between the world. The masculine and feminine divine energy sources. The Sun and the Moon. Tonight there was to be a sacred dance and music in all respect towards our Mother. We 3 young women, in 3 separate directions of this world, yet all from the north sat and created costumes of our spirit animals to be worn that evening. Creating everything from nature and what she provides. Palm frans were our main source of creativity. Unaware of what I was to become, pieces of costume in the end formed a beautiful black butterfly of the night. Dream Catcher wings, fairy clothing, painted tribal designs all over my body, I was the dancing joy of life.
At sunset Carmelle, Emily, and I prayed and sang as the Male entity of Earth set, bringing on the Female divine to rise and become its fullest after 11pm. I had invited locals, travelers, and gypsy creatures from Sayulita to come be part of our Celebration. About 10 Mexican (African drummers) came , along with their crew of acrobatics of fire to harmonize with the dancing spirit animals of this night. Us 3 flying creatures all took to the sky as the egnormise bonfire lit up the entire beach and night. Around 40 celebrating earthlings were there that night, as the Leo – Fiery Full Moon danced around in harmony.

Saturday 30th
Woken up to the sunrise and empty, lonely feeling the accompanied the air, I felt distant. Especially as the floating young bodies of last night were sprawled randomly around our beach, absorbing the mornings sun rays. Yet the emptiness evaporated soon enough, when a new opportunity arose. Neptune bringing forth at 10:38am an opportunity for a spiritual awakening. My local friend dropped by to invite me and Carmelle to Spiritual Gathering in the highland desert, across Mexico, in the State of San Luis Potozi. And with some thought, we decided to each pack up a small bag and leave our tent and the rest of our things behind with some friends on the beach and travel over night across Mexico.

Sunday 31st
We arrived in the wee morning to San Luis Potozi, where Gustavo, a friend of my friend, Cisco picked us up and brought us back to his place. There we rested a few hours, before we travelled a few hours outside the city, to the Gaia Gathering. It was a Conscious Cleansing Circle – Gathering.
At a Hacienda / Rancho, there we began to build the tamascal.
A tamascal is a traditional Native Sweat Lodge, used to cleanse and purify your body, soul, and spirit.
Gustavo, Sisco’s friend was going to lead the ceremony to take place that late afternoon. I was blessed to be able to help construct the temporary Lodge. This one was a circular, dome shaped bamboo structure. Mother Earth’s Belly, the Heart of Earth, and we were to enter into her body, into her belly to purify. We covered it with Burlap, felt and wool blankets, and black plastic. Mean while in line with her belly, we built the fire outside. It had to keep burning for more than 3 hours, as the volcanic rocks we had placed within heated up. With each volcanic rock we placed in the fire, we put a prayer or intention of this ceremony within the fire, to burn and take away. Later as the day progressed, white lilies, flowers, crystals, drums, flags all kinds of sacred objects were placed around the fire. More beautiful souls showed up, and just before sunset we were all cleansed with sage and entered into the Tamascal.
IT was a 3 hour sweat, with 3 door openings to let in more volcanic rock, more heat, or for those to step out if needed. The lodge was a 10 by 10 foot circle, with over 30 people inside. While it we sang, chanted, prayed, in unity, in silence, we released negative energy from our souls. We purified for preparation for that evening. I sat crossed legged in peace and divine love for 3 straight hours, in complete love and harmony for all human/animal kind. I have been here before. I have had this feeling before. This familiar sensation has been part of my life, my lives. I was a past Indian Girl of the north. I have sweated and cleansed before this. I have chanted and sang songs of our Earth Mother over and over again, and finally at this stage in my life, this cycle I am returning to I was before and to who I am now.
That evening we entered into the sacred circle to purify our souls even more so. We were to take medicine from the Amozonia Jungle – Ayahuasca. It was a beautiful ritualistic ceremony that went on for 5 hours. We all wore white. We drank the plant in liquid form, all the way from Brasil and sat in meditation. There were two Madrina’s guiding us every step. Madrina’s are Shaman Women and they came from Peru and Brasil for this ritual. We began in a square shape, revolving around the Shaman’s in the middle and according to height spiraled out. They sang songs of religion, of a Christian God, of the man who found Ayahuasca, songs in Portuguese, while we sat and meditated and went within ourselves and released. We released all negative energies eating at our souls. From psykeldics to sadness, to happiness, to releasing all holding us back. It was a Santo Daime Religion. In the end we sang and danced. Men on one side of the room, women on the either, swaying back in forth in opposition from our opposite selves. We swayed in harmony and song of joy. Brothers and Sisters, all as one, spirits of this Earth.

Earth my Body
Water my Blood
Air my Breath
And Fire my Spirit

hey hey hey ya, hey ya ho
Hey hey hey ya, hey ya ho

Tierra mi Cuerpo
Agua mi sangre
Aire mi Aliento
Y Fuego mi Espiritu

Gibbous Moon - 26th January

We are awaken to Uranus aligning with the moon, bringing forth cosmic consciousness and revolutionary change. And literal shouts did rise our whole community as the sun rose towards Gibbous Moon. Beauty was before us. Baby Turtle hatching's were running to the sea. First breath of life and their immediate response is the sea. Where the come from and to return to their mother. We were all witnesses to the cosmic love of the Earth. Natures unique pure beauty that is around us constantly. Only if we open up our eyes. We have been sadly watching two local men come to Mal Paso everyday for the past week or more. The come to dig up holes. They were searching for turtle eggs. Poachers. Eggs for prophet, for a luxurious meal that supposedly gives you energy all day. They were not welcome, yet the came. Yet not today! Today we were protectors and messengers of Earth Mother. She gave us the gift to watch these new creatures of life run in hope to the sea to reconnect with their mother. And with all of us watching in awe, none of them were snatched up by birds or such. All made it to the sea. We were the guardians of Mal Paso and Mother Earth.

My mama she told me she like to give gifts
Mama Earth she shows me how she likes to give gifts
She likes to give gifts
She likes giving gifts
The abundance it shows me that she likes to give gifts

The worms in the earth, she likes to give gifts
The fruit on the tree´s, she likes to give gifts
She likes to give gifts
She likes giving gifts
The abundance it shows me that she likes to give gifts

My papa he told me he likes to give gifts
Papa Sky shows me how he likes to give gifts
He likes to give gifts
He likes giving gifts
The abundance it shows me that he likes to give gifts
The sun and the moon, he likes to give gifts
The rain and the clouds, he likes to give gifts
He likes to give gifts
He likes giving gifts
The abundance it shows me that he likes to give gifts

Like Mama like child, i like to give gifts
Like Papa like child, i like to give gifts
I like to give gifts

The abundance it lets me give you my gifts

My song and my smile

I like to give gifts
I like giving gifts
The abundance it lets me give you my gifts.

First Quarter Moon - 23rd January

The morning sunrise brought Venus square to the moon. With her she brings - Relationship, love, sense of beauty, and empathy. And man we were really feeling the sense of beauty of Mal Paso. The pristine, rugged life we were beginning to live there. Using all the elements as our guides. The Earth - Sand beneath our home, Fire - our only source of making food to eat each day, Water - the sea as our only source of cleanliness, and Air - Oh, sweet air we breath. We were also building new relationships as time passed. Building quit the community. Nearly 20 foreign, nature loving campers living off the land. Yesterday we formed our Goddess trio, taking in Emily from Sweden. With her we started a new project. Our Canadian neighborly pirate boy scouts were constantly creating beauty at their camp. Creating zin rock gardens, alters, and such. They were living there bout 2 months. But we were starting to catch up with them in time. Besides our tree alters and dream catchers, we decided to build a Medicine Wheel. A traditional Native American Prayer/Meditation Circle.

The Lesson of Patience:

From the red star, red is. The red is East. It is the doorway within the physical wheel of learning. The red is red medicine, Confidence. Red is also Patience. From the spirit we are united with our memory of consistency. We connect with Constant. The red teachings are carried on the wings of the eagle. A spirit keeper stands at the wheel in the early morning mist and speaks to us of deer medicine. Deer is the one who carries prayers to Great Spirit, Grandmother/Grandfather. Both deer and eagle give us the teachings of spirit. It is the memory of the Rainbow Medicine Wheel that is brought to us from the red.
A physical Medicine Wheel is a place where you can encounter spirituality. It is your own church, your own classroom, your own sanctuary. Medicine wheels are very old. Within the mother wheel that is mother earth, we have the opportunity to see all things, hear all things and do all things. The Rainbow Medicine Wheel starts in the center where creation occurs. A song of spiraling colors comes out from the center, and the seven rocks placed around it represent the Song. From the Song comes direction.
Starting in the East, with red, in spirit. In the South, with green, are lessons, emotions. In the West, with blue, is the physical. In the North, with white, is wisdom. In the spirit section, the East, are seven stones: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, burgundy. With each of these stones are words of medicine: Confidence, Balance, Creativity, Growth, Truth, Wisdom, Impeccability. From the East gate, going into the center, are seven more stones; red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, burgundy. These are the lessons: Patience, Unity, Original, Faith, Sincerity, Reason, and Worth. In each section there are seven medicines and seven lessons.
In the teachings of spirit, as we learn to be sacred, we listen to the Song, for we are accountable. As we learn to pray, we listen to the Song, for we are responsible. When we learn to pray, we listen to the Song, and we are sincere. When we learn to teach and we learn to learn, and we learn to give and take, we listen to the Song and we are honest. When we do, practice and be, on the good red road, walking in the good way, we listen to the Song of Faithfulness. When we select, when we make something happen in our life, we listen to the Song of Commitment. When we do it and carry it on, and produce it in our everyday walk, we listen to the Song - we are dedicated.
We apply our lessons and listen to the Spirit keepers that walk through the gates. From the spirit, the spirit realm is carried on the wings of the eagle. From the emotions, it runs on the paws and hairs of the coyote. From the physical, it is seen within the depth and the power of the eyes of the bear. From the mental, it is from the mind of the wolf.
It is yours, to build, to dream, to sit with, to have the opportunity to feel creation, to hear salvation, to walk with uprightness, to be on the red road, to follow the ways of Grandmother/Grandfather, great Spirit.

Patience was our guide and song our friend as we spent 2 long days slowly constructing this wheel around a sacred tree. We had all the materials between the 3 of us. Synchronistic, meant to be. All the while we sang. Songs of Earth, of her sacred steps, of the love we hold as Light, Rainbow, Earth Warriors. We are goddesses and put all our power of love, beauty, and strength into the rocks as we painted, into the poles as we planted them, and into the center alter, Great Spirit (Tree) that was bedazzled with dozens of sea shells and powerful crystals. We finished at dusk on the Waxing Moon. We held our first ceremony with songs of Earth. And afterwards we celebrated. Celebrated with food, song, and dance. What a traditional, sacred evening it was. We indulged and bought Camarones - Shrimp to make shrimp/veggie kabobs and fire roasted potatoes. Our new neighbors from Guadalajara, brought drums, song, and music. Thus we danced to the beat of the Earths heart. Danced until we grew wings and were birds and could fly...

I feel like dancing
till the end of time.
Till my feet and arms
are wings
and i´ll fly
into Heaven.
To be one
with my Spirit
and all Kind.
A ho

We all come from the Goddess
and to her we shall return
Like a drop of Rain
flowing to the ocean.
Hoof and Horn, Hoof and Horn
All that dies shall be reborn
Corn and Grain, Corn and Grain
All that dies shall rise again

We all come from the Horn God
and to him we shall return
Like a spark of Flame
rising to the Heavens.
Hoof and Horn, Hoof and Horn
All that dies shall be reborn
Corn and Grain, Corn and Grain
All that dies shall rise again

Cresent Moon - 16th January

We´ve skedaddled our way outta Sayulita fast as well. Bit too hippity hop pop squash, gringo landia minus the flashy suicide resorts of Vallarta. Just bit to happening if you know what i mean...

We haven´t gone far. Along with another Rasta man Vibration, on a motor bike on a journey from North to South -top to tip of the Americas. We picked up and found a free campin private beach. Secret was how to get to it. Mal Paso being the name, meaning - ¨Difficult Passage¨ (Bad pass) it wasn´t over run as it took us an hour to get to it.
Today the moon is opposite of Mars - Will to act, Initiative, and Ambition; which all helped us to get there. To arrive to our - will to be - community. Mal Paso is paradise. A group of Latinos (around 20 of them) who built a clay oven and put´s up a volleyball net every time they camp, invited us over for pizza. Wonderful welcoming. They were just there for the weekend.
That night around ¨La Fuegata¨ - Camp Fire, strange things started happening to my body. Like never before in my life, i was disconnecting with my body and it went completely numb! Couldn´t feel anything. My nose was running a river and my throat clogged up. What was happening to me? Finally a visitor showed up, crawling here and there at our fire. A black king. A mighty, powerful being, that we had no control over. How insignificant did he make us feel. How fearful we became. How much power a Scorpion has! And that is when it clicked, my symptoms were of a scorpion sting. And that strange sting thro my dress on my stomach when i was collecting fire wood at dusk was not some foreign plant, yet a King. Luckily since it had been hours since it happened we decided i was not in any severe condition. So i just went onto bed with 3 tablespoons of olive oil and rest. Mal Paso´s welcoming present...

Lesson : Balance - Medicine. I am learning to balance fear. How to control fear. Not let it take over oneself and dig deeper and deeper. Negativity over ridding... We got lost on the path on Wednesday night. Walking back from Sayulita to Mal Paso Camp. We got lost in the jungle, with luckily one head lam,p, get fear was lingering. IT lingered as we wondered in circles. It lingered as we randomly choose which direction. It lingered and jumped out at us as the bushes moved and noises of the night cried out. What animal could it be? Yet we won, we fought simply. Negative verses Positive. A laugh and thought, a comment to Carmelle, ¨Oh, well whatever animal it maybe, just believe it is your animal totem and is here to give you a message. Be it a wild cat or not. We have control. And baaaaaamm....All Fear evaporated

21st I had a Dream:
It is 2012. Appears to be the Winter Solstice. At home, yes i am. Among the tree´s and friends. Among Redwoods and friends i grew up with. There is much going on. Chaos. But there is a group of women speaking to the tree´s, asking them to wake up, for help. We are in a circle, a circle of meditation. We are singing, meditating, sending love to the Earth and the Tree´s. As commotion and fear is spread, its outside our circle, we continue to sing the songs of the Earth. And as we sing the tree´s begin to wake up and move!
Cloudy, blue sky morning. 6 am. Before Sunrise. Earth shakes me up from thoughts, from slumber. The next great cycle is coming. The tree´s speak to us when we pray and ask them too. The ocean´s tides, Las Olas they are monstrous this morning. They wake me up from one of Earth Mother´s Messages.

Humble yourself in the Arms of the Wild

Gotta lay down Low

Humble yourself in the Arms of the Wild

Gotta tell her what she know

We will lift each other up

Higher and Higher

We will lift each other up

Higher and Higher

New Moon - 14th of January

One day past, 24 hours ago the moon became linked together (in conjuction) with Mercury at 8:35 am. Mercury represents communication, travel, thought. At this very hour i was in travel. Taking another leap into time. I flew over deserts, mountains, and ocean to arrive just south of my home in Mexico.
I am embarking on an intergallatic journey of consciousness. Through time and space i am travelling to seek out Mother Earth´s Messages. To atune my mind, body, and spirit with nature. To where we all came from. To the Stars. The Plieades.

Destination: Puerto Vallarta
Note: Aweful skyscrapper gringo ridden city, but it does have an airport, thus i have landed

Yet not alone have i landed. Never alone. There waiting for me was my soul sister from the north. The Eagle.
Back to the New Moon
It is the beginning of the first full cycle since the winter solistice. And with it, i have began a revoluntary change in Uranus. Death, Rebirth, deep total change in Pluto. I am one with the Universe.

New Destination: Sayulita, 1 hour north of Vallarta on the West Coast of Central, Mexico

We are the Change
We are the one´s that we are waiting for
We are dawning
We are the Rising Sun
We are the Change
We are the one´s that we are waiting for
We are Dawning
We are the Rising Sun!
