Re-birthing, stretching within the cocoon.
Soon the veils will give way as we reach through, tearing our way out,
unfolding our multicolored wings and taking our first flight.

Monday, June 21, I went to a Solstice gathering on a beautiful place
on the Earth at the edge of a field that rolled down to meet the Hudson
River. The sweet fragrance of Linden trees filled the air. There is a
medicine wheel there made up of standing stones. We hung flags of red,
yellow, black and white to honor the four directions and in the wheel
we made “pilgrimage” to each direction and then sat in meditation.
Within prayers for the healing of the Earth and for humanity to awaken
to right relationship with all of life, I found myself opening to
receive the of each direction, without thinking about the aspects
that each direction holds, just opening to feeling. And to my
surprise, when I made my offering at the center of the wheel I found
myself asking in a little prayer that I be able to receive the beauty
of who I am. I think most of us in the human body hold feelings of
unworthiness so deep within our genetic makeup. So this prayer arose
from my heart… “Please help me to receive the bounty and abundance that
the Universe has to offer in all dimensions, on all levels through
space and time and within all of my . And please help me
to receive the beauty of who I am.”

Receiving the beauty of who I
am… letting go of doubts, feelings of unworthiness, standing in my
truth and being who I am – the light and the shadow.

This Solstice is heralding in great change and
expansion. At times you may feel chaotic energies around you – it is
important to connect with the center of your being. We sense
nervousness within you—we attempt to soothe you with peaceful energies,
nurturing and providing sustenance to you. Through your breath you can
open up to receive this energy. We cannot send it into you if you are
closed, constricted with fear and doubt. Breathing into the “all is
well in this moment of now” and feeling appreciation for the beauty
that is around you helps you to soften within. . . helps to open your
inner channel to receive – to receive on all levels in all energy
bodies the sustenance and balance and expansion into love that you

Take yourself back to moments when you
were feeling your “shine.” Bring yourself to moments when you have a
knowing that you are at the right place in the right time. This is the
same as when you cultivate the love within your heart, when you bring
yourself into the knowing of who you are and feeling into your
connection with All that Is. This is where you access your power this
is where you access the abundant, infinite energies of divine source.

Being in a place where you can open up to your connection to nature
brings you into the knowing of abundance. Observe the animals in their
innocence, the squirrel hopping across the stream from rock to rock.
Yes the innocence and the resonance of love is what will help you to
navigate through these expansive energies.

Creative Chaos

expansion creates chaos as energetic structures collapse and this is
part of the experience of growing and releasing that which does not fit
the organic flow of the evolution of consciousness. Within the chaos a
gateway is opening for you. It is as if you are swimming through space
and time and will enter and flow though this gateway of light. It is a
gateway of love and light and you are in the current that will take you
into this flow that will bring you into what we call higher ground and
vistas of more beauty and more love. And yes many are choosing through
their beingness to enter into this gateway and open into love no
matter what is playing out around you. The expansion will cause further
chaos in some realms and further shifting and releasing and collapsing
of the old modalities and you will be supported through love as you
open more and more to these higher frequencies.

Being instead
of doing

When we say “beingness” we mean you don’t have to try,
you don’t have to do anything, you just be in love. Call upon your
guides and Divine Source energy to assist you and to help you to open
more and more into freedom, love and innocence. This is the vibration
which carries you gracefully through the expanding energies.

that you wish for is already in the realm of your experience; all that
you wish for is within you to experience. All that you wish for is
already here. Feel into the expansiveness of these statements. From the
until this time you have planted seeds. And now you
will begin to see the seeds coming into fruition, moving towards
harvest. This is the beauty of the rhythm of the times. It wasn’t always
this way on earth. There was a time before the great cataclysm and the
shifting of the poles where the seasons did not change, but now you
are living in the beauty and rhythm of the movement of the moon and the
sun, the earth, the stars and planets. As you harvest the seeds you
planted you may find some weeds that need to be removed from their
roots. Within the higher vibrational energies of love you will be able
to do so with loving kindness towards yourself. We feel the nervousness
within you and we offer soothing energy to strengthen your solar
plexus and the first and second chakras as well.

The Circle of

As you vibrate with the resonance of love and innocence,
you bring more light to you. See yourself sitting in this circle of
light and fill your with this light. No matter what is
happening outside of you, remain in the circle of light and you will
manifest what it is you so desire for your happiness. This will be a
challenge where there are still voices in the world that say there is
not enough and speak of lack – many different versions of lack –
lacking the relationship you’d like to have, lacking the money you’d
like to have and so on. We would like to focus on your ability to
manifest at a moments notice. Call forth all that you need. Call it
forth by feeling what it feels like to receive. Go into the openness of
receiving at every moment. When you start to drift from love, pull
yourself back into the light – when you find yourself wandering off
into the depths of darkness, turn yourself back towards the light. You
know what the light is; you know what the light feels like. It is
shining out into the darkness, reaching beams of light to you for you
to travel on to bring you back into the circle of light – the fire
circle in the midst of the jungle. The fire in the center of the circle
is your , and it is your path. This is the fire of
joy and happiness, of inspiration, playfulness, innocence. Bring
yourself back to the fire within. As you cultivate it, as you feed the
fire with love, it grows and remains steady.

Challenges help you

There may be times when this is challenging but that
challenge is the that helps you strengthen the muscle, as
it were, that will bring you back into the center. And even that is
something you can cultivate appreciation for as you walk more and more
in joy. So bring yourself back into the light with the feelings of
innocence and joy and being in the moment of now. When you are in this
light you are on the beam – the beam of life force energy that carries
you forward.


You are accustomed to moving
quickly – we say allow yourselves to slow down to feel yourselves
within this vibration as you become timeless and you don’t have a
sensation of fast or slow, it is just an is-ness. It is as if there is a
fine point that you can perch upon like a dragonfly on a leaf and if
you find this fine point, the out into the expansion and
it is beingness that helps you to alight into this light and to
receive the gift of timelessness. So begin cultivating with your breath
the essence of love and expansion. And you will find yourself flowing
and glowing into the beauty and the world will not look the same.

energetic structures that have been in place for so long are
disappearing all around you as the energies expand, which is why you
have felt disoriented at times. The mind tries to understand and
explain. We say bring stillness to the mind through breathing, through
coming into the heart over and over again. This is a practice, minute by
minute, hour by hour, day by day. As you make this a practice you will
see more joy and more spontaneity coming into your life. Allow for
this opening to occur. Do not try to push it, just be it. Don’t worry
that you’ve missed it – the expansion—moving through the portal—it is
not something you can do anything about. A divine paradox! Someday you
will come to feel that it doesn’t matter whether you “got it” or not.
As you cultivate and become the innocence and love and joy it simply
won’t matter “where” you are, and you will find yourself to be there,
wherever “there” is. Ha ha! We offer you a conundrum of the expansion!

Allow your shine to glow and radiate no matter what the outer
circumstances are.

And consider this: What is valued? What do you
value in yourself? What to you value in the world? What is value? What
is of value? We speak of rolling with the changes. All beings are
learning about value.


Why do we go on about
light, expansion, innocence, love and joy? Because it is these energies
that will assist humanity in opening into the truth of your nature.
You have powers and abilities that you haven’t dreamed of. Or perhaps
you have dreamed of these powers but have no idea how to access them.
Indeed you are superheroes and love will open the pathway to
discovering who you truly are.
