Mind Movie 2.1, knowing what’s in your cookware, fabulous coconut oil, astrology update and Abraham


Mind Movies 2.1 is now available and it comes with $1382.22 in bonuses, so now’s the time to get this great tool for envisioning and actualizing the life you were meant to live! I created a number of personal movies (you can see one of them here) using the old software several years ago and it was a lot of fun, but rather time-consuming and overwhelming to figure out how things worked. Well,  now things are a breeze! If you want to know more, plus get 6 free pre-made movies, go here.


# 1 – Wow, I found this article about various types of cookware and their health risks surprising (e. g. I thought using glass cookware was one of the best ways to go) and informative….


# 2 – And I knew the benefits and uses for coconut oil were many, but this list has some even I wasn’t aware of….


(If you want to know even more about coconut oil, you can check out my webpages http://www.allonetogether.com/CoconutOil.html and http://www.allonetogether.com/coconut_oil_cleanse.html)

# 3 – And you can’t go wrong with a little Abraham…

“In your action, you lose sight of the vision, you lose sight of your trust in the process, and you just bang around in a sense of futility. Hold the vision and trust that the Universe will acclimate to your vision. Hold the vision and trust the process.”— Abraham

(Interested in writing a vision? Did you know that writing things down makes them 10 times more likely to happen?! Check out my workbook on effective visioning, conscious creation and Self-realization here. It would be a great adjunct to the Mind Movies technology. :-))

# 4 – Here’s the recent newsletter I got from shamanic astrologer Tami Brunk at astrologyforearthrenewal.com. It’s long, but I found the information and insights very helpful in gaining an enlightened perspective on the energies and forces at play right now…

I have been anticipating late May and June all year, as the most potent, magical window for 2012. Between last Sundays solar eclipse and next Monday’s (June 4) lunar eclipse, next Tuesday’s (June 5) Venus Transit, the new Venus in Gemini cycle, and the first exact Pluto Uranus square in June, we are truly living in the heart of transformation and change.

We are in an eclipse window–between now and the Venus Transit next week. SO it is important to remember that this means our shadow crap is going to come up. Yes, I do believe we have access to so much healing, love, light, joy, and profound insight at this time. Some are primarily feeling these things, and enjoying this time tremendously. And yet… for many of us, the first step is not nearly so pretty.

Here’s a great irony for you: when we are aware that we live in a time of great opportunity for expansive healing, growth, and transformation (or are unaware, but feel the influx of intense energy just the same) and AT THE SAME TIME we see/feel that our planet, and quite possibly our personal lives are in a great heap of trouble; this can open us up to a lot of trauma, profound anxiety, and fear.

In all the hullaballoo, we might be afraid that we’ll “do the wrong thing” and miss the boat, miss the pivotal moment. What if we are not eating the right food, doing the right ceremonies, thinking the right thoughts, making our contribution in the biggest best way, in the right places… oh the torture!

Our Calvinist Christian training in drag. Damn it, why am I still drinking coffee and not going to yoga? I won’t get to go to New Age Heaven with all my friends who eat raw and vegan and are doing yoga teacher training and oh shit… look what I’m doing!

How embarrassing. Well, that’s my shadow stuff. It showed up in full force for the eclipse event, right on schedule. Where should I be? Albuquerque is not good enough! I am an astrologer, I need a better transmission, somewhere in the wilderness… somewhere incredible!! It took a while for the lightbulb to come on-wait a second, you live in one of the best places in the world to see the eclipse and it’s not good enough?!? Interesting.

It’s an old, old wounding pattern for me of not trusting myself, and thinking I am supposed to be somewhere else, doing something else, with someone else, and actually BEING someone else!!!! At its core is my fundamental fear that I do not belong, that I don’t have a place, that I don’t have a right to be here. Also the idea that there is one right way to be, do, believe-and that mine probably isn’t the right one. Okay, deep breath!

So… guess what? It took writing this to break through the trance, and for the Crazy Gemini Wisdom to bless me with a good swift kick in the ass. Ah…. This is what happens after a while, when we wrestle with our demons, who have been unleashed from the eclipse window (or other underworld initiatory event) with great glee and abandon. We get to see who’s been running the show, have a good hard laugh (and maybe cry!) with ourselves, and hopefully chill the f’out.

And now my practice is simple. I claim and empower the reality that I am in just the right place, doing just the right things, enjoying just the right relationships, unfolding and awakening at just the right pace. As I embrace this and pay attention to the contradictory messages that arise, I am allow the healing and awakening to happen within me, in the most accurate ways for my soul journey.

So much love and appreciation for all of you, at every place around the wheel, in every phase of life’s journey!

 And here’s her update report that she is offering for free this week:

The Eclipse Window and Beyond

So let us just focus on this period now, between Sunday’s eclipse and the Venus Transit, which in some sense can be experienced as an eclipse-of Venus to the Sun. We are in an eclipse window where time has been accelerated, a portal to the mysteries of the Great Above has been opened, and whether we are conscious of it or not, we are receiving transmissions of crazy wisdom and insight that will unfold over the months to come.

Venus Retrograde

The fact that Venus is in retrograde (since May 15, lasting until June 27) for the first time in 1 ½ years adds to the “time out of time” dynamic we are all feeling. It adds to the need for us to slow down and reflect, to tend to our interior lives, rather than putting ourselves out there too much and being overly focused on productivity in Middle World reality (except to the degree that it serves our awakening, our spiritual growth, and of course is required to put food on the table)!

Neptune Activation to Sun and Mercury

As if that were not enough, we are still feeling the reverberations from last week’s Sun and Mercury transits to Neptune, which caused us to be really inundated by the feeling function, and giving us profound access to the higher realms. Are you getting the idea? In other words, if time seems to be moving very strangely, if you are feeling resistance to the status quo and wanting to just slow down and dream, then you may just be on the right track.

Eclipse Shadow Activation

Part of what an eclipse invokes is the surfacing of our shadow material-our old wounding, the places where past trauma and habitual toxic thought patterns block us from our birthright of experiencing joy, knowing peace, and feeling ourselves as love in motion. I’ve been feeling it profoundly, as crippling self-doubt and paralysis as my mind takes over, telling me all about myself that is wrong, creating comparisons, making every choice the wrong one.

Yet the eclipses and transit are creating an opportunity for us to face into and own our shadow material at the SAME TIME that we are provided with access to profound healing, insights, and information that we have not been ready for until now. So we are in an integration process. If it feels uncomfortable, if you cannot sleep, if you are saying to yourself with exasperation-“why am I stuck in that pattern again? I thought I had evolved past that!” You are not alone, and you are not crazy.

Opening to the Light

We are receiving all of the “light codes” and energetic frequencies to help our minds and physical and emotional bodies prepare for the deep initiatory processes of this fall, and the “beginning times” of 2013. Does this mean we feel great? For most of us, it feels like the Dickens’ quote from A Tale of Two Cities: “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.”

We might simultaneously be opening to glimpses of possibility for our lives and opportunities to experience magic–at the same time we feel the aspects of ourselves, and those around us who remain shut down and stuck in old patterns, are feeling a great degree of pain as the influx of new energy activates surfacing of old wounds, and shadow material.

Healing the Mind/Body/Emotion Split

In the center of the eclipse energy is a profound healing and transformation occurring between Mind/ Body/Emotion. The May 20 eclipse occurred at the Pleiades, where Taurus transitions to Gemini. Jupiter is transitioning from its year in Taurus to a year in Gemini (and is within 5 degrees of the Pleiades through June, expanding its influence). And Venus is transitioning from the Scorpio Cycle (emotional will) to Gemini.

So it is that many of us feel an erratic jumping around between feeling very emotional and overwhelmed, to being very anxious and in the mind and painfully aware of wanting to jump out of the body and do everything and once and yet do nothing.Mixed into that are moments of absolute bliss and happiness as we glimpse how it feels to allow greater magic and mystery into our lives.

I believe this is the Shadow Material all of humanity is currently engaged with. In the realm of the mind we have the reality that at this moment in history, modern people have more freedom of choice and movement than ever before–and opportunities to experience everything all at once, through the internet, and facebook, etc. This is creating exhaustion, overwhelm, and suffering through our inability to decide, and be exactly where we are at.

I believe that much of what we will be experiencing over the next 11 months, as Venus in Gemini goes through the first half of her Death and Rebirth initiatory journey, where she is dismembered in her present form, so that she can be made new–is a healing of the collective Mind of the Information Age, and the many ways our modern communication serves to enslave and distract us, rather than empower us. More on that to come!

Taurus as Guru Guide

What I feel is most helpful to remember, in a practical way right now, is that Jupiter is still in Taurus until June 11, so it is coming to its fullest degree of mastery in this sign, and still the leading Dharmic path for humanity for the next couple of weeks.

We are all invited to use it as our guiding teacher or Guru as to how we navigate this period from now through mid-June. I believe that this is our time to fully embody these mysteries and come to know we can access them at any time into the future, to assist us on our Jupiter/Venus in Gemini journey that begins in mid June.

What does Taurus know how to do? Be in the moment. Savor her life. Radiate the energy of Heaven on Earth in his being, in his knowing, in his core. How does she get there? By slowing down and listening to her body.

By releasing the need to always have an agenda and instead simply enjoying what is in his life. What does she allow to happen when she grounds herself? He allows all those things that serve his higher good to come TO him, instead of running around so fast that they can’t possibly catch up to her.

So even as we practice humor and compassion in the many ways this new Gemini energy can prompt scatteredness and mind-oriented anxiety, we do well to practice the Taurus dharma in this next few weeks, in order to best integrate shadow, and welcome New Light.

Contributing from a True Heart

I am writing a great deal about the Mind (Gemini), and about the Body (Taurus), and about Emotions (Neptune/Scorpio). Yet it is so vital to remember that the central point, the place where everything can come together is in the Heart.

Last night (Monday) the Moon sailed past Regulus, the Royal Behenian Star that is the “heart of the Lion Constellation,” which just moved from 29 Leo to 0 Virgo. Part of our opportunity (and anxiety at this time of great transformation) is to get really clear on what we’ve come to contribute, and to bring it forward, so as to contribute to the healing of our Earth, and human family.

What I have been seeing so clearly is that if we wish to be of service in this world, we need to get really clear on all the crap we’re carrying around that causes us to do our work from a place of low energy and vitality-usually when we are carrying around a “should” that does not really below to us, or to our greater selves.

This means that if we’re trying to be “good” because we feel deep down that we are unworthy, our outcomes are going to reflect that.

If we want to be a force for transformation and joy, if we want to “be the change” then the most important work we can do right now is to look directly at and face the wounding that is motivating our actions.

After we have done that, it is vital to take the temperature of how we feel about what we want to create in the world. Does it fill our hearts with joy to do this work-either what we are currently doing or the long term vision? What aspects of my projects, of what I am wishing to create bring me the greatest sense of expansiveness, of purpose, of energy?

What really leaves me cold, but I think I am “supposed to do it” this way? What is not authentic soul purpose cannot thrive at this time. What is not generated from love, open-heartedness, and joyful anticipation cannot grow and thrive in this changing environment.

Yet when we get clear on what we are truly wanting to experience and create, and focus our attention on that-we can create miracles, in the blink of an eye. We are unstoppable, unshakeable beacons of light, love, and inspired action.

# 3 – Children of the Sun’s take on the upcoming astrological happenings…

The Lunar Eclipse and Venus Transit of June 2012

The remarkable astronomical transits of May continue into the month of June with the historic Venus Transit traveling across the face of the Sun. This will be preceded by a Lunar Eclipse. The partially eclipsed Full Moon forms a mutable T-square involving the Sun, Venus and Mars, giving great opportunity to heal gender issues and relationships of every type.
Days immediately following the Lunar Eclipse, June 5-6, we will experience a rare and spectacular event known as the Venus Transit. This is essentially an eclipse, however, instead of the moon coming between the Earth and the Sun it is the planet Venus. As the basis of the Mayan “Long Count Calendar”, the Venus Transit is regarded by many as the celestial signal that the “Great Transformation of the Closing of the Cycle” has begun.
As the blended radiations of the Sun and Venus make their way into the Earth’s electromagnetic field, it weaves the energies of illuminating love and unity into mass consciousness. This is a profound catapulting force and opportunity for mass healingtranscendance of 3d sexual attitudes and the integration of gender polarities.
Transcending Gender Polarity and Identification    
For contemplation…
The Law of Gender embodies the truth that gender is manifested in everything. The masculine and feminine is ever at work on all planes of causation. On the higher planes, gender expresses through higher forms of manifestation. This law works in the direction of generation, regeneration, and creation. All life forms contain the two elements of gender – masculine and feminine.
– On the great physical plane, the sexes of all species are manifested as male and female and they each play their role in sexual reproduction.
– On the great mental plane, gender manifests as masculine and feminine energies that exist within each and every person. Every male has its female element, and every female has its male element.
– On the great spiritual plane, gender manifests as the Father-Mother principle of the Infinite Omnipresent God in whose mind the universe is conceived and firmly held. It is written, “We all live, move, and have our being within God”.
In the Earth ascension process, the human personality achieves the merger of God, and the self is seen as neither male or female, but as one blended whole.

# 4 – And a “2fer” of Abraham :-)…

“Do you have to change your vibration on a particular subject in order to let it in?” No, you don’t. You could pet your pet and let it in. You could sit with your feet dangling in the bay, and let it in. If it is a subject that you often think of in an attitude of resistance, it is really worthwhile reaching for some thoughts that feel better. You could launch an intention and never think about it again, and the Universe would yield it to you. You don’t have to clean up your vibration relative to anything, if you can just not think about it any more. That’s why we teach meditation. It’s easier to teach you to have no thought than to have pure positive thought. When you quiet your mind you stop thought; when you stop thought you stop resistance; when you stop resistance—then you are in a state of allowing.”— Abraham

“There is a Life Stream that flows to you, and this is a Stream of clarity, a Stream of wellness, a Stream of abundance… and in any moment, you are allowing it or not. What someone else does with the Stream, or not, does not have anything to do with how much of it will be left for you. This Stream is as abundant as your ideas allow it to be.”— Abraham

Ken Wilber & Andrew Cohen, being happy, Accelerated Awakening, enlightenment, germs and more!


# 1 – Here’s a message from Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose…

Ten years ago, integral philosopher Ken Wilber and spiritual teacher Andrew Cohen had a breakthrough revelation. They realized if humanity is evolving, then the timeless truth of spiritual enlightenment must evolve as well. From that insight the “Guru & Pandit” dialogues were born.

In each issue of the award-winning EnlightenNext magazine, Cohen and Wilber collaborated to deliver mind-expanding investigations that helped to define the contours of a new spiritual worldview for our time.

Now, we’re pleased to announce that the Guru and the Pandit are going virtual. Starting on Saturday, June 2nd , Cohen and Wilber will host four new dialogues in 2012 — live and online, broadcast for fr*ee to thousands of listeners worldwide.


# 2 – And speaking of enlightenment, here’s a nice tie-in on the subject from Abraham…

“Enlightenment means literally aligning to the Energy of my Source. And genius is only about focusing. Law of Attraction takes care of everything else. Physical humans often want to make enlightenment about finding some process and moving through the process that has been pre-described. But true enlightenment is moving to the rhythm of the internal inspiration that is coming in response to the individual desire. Enlightenment is about allowing my connection to the Source that is me for the fulfillment of the things that I have individually defined here in my time/space reality. That’s as good as it gets!”— Abraham

# 2 – Here’s another great one from Abraham…

“Every single person on the planet and every single Consciousness in the Universe has the same experience of being here and having a desire to be there. In other words, it is the promise of this eternal Universe. You’re always, always, always going to be on your way to something more – always. And when you relax and accept that, and stop beating up on yourself for not being someplace that you’re not, and instead, start embracing where you are while you keep your eye on where you’re going – now life becomes really, really, really fun.”— Abraham

New moon & solar eclipse, Kashi misrepresentation, and more!



We’re heading into a very special and unique, powerful and potent time for the next few months, astrologically speaking…

# 1 – Information from astrograph.com on the new moon and solar eclipse period we are heading into…

This Sunday, May 20th, late afternoon to early evening on the West Coast, there will be an astronomical event that is visible in many areas of the world as an annular Solar Eclipse. In the San Francisco Bay area there will only be large crescent-shaped chunks taken out of the blinding disk of the Sun. What this means astrologically is more complex. Whether the occlusion of the Sun is annular or total, an eclipse is regarded as an extremely powerful New Moon, with the eclipse degree a sensitive point in the heavens for the following six months. Since in this case the eclipse degree is 0 Gemini, exactly sextile to the Aries point, that effect is magnified, and so is the symbolism of the sign itself. The Sabian Symbol for the eclipse degree reinforces this strong Gemini vibe. It is “A glass-bottom boat in still water,” and it emphasizes the idea of curiosity, and also the elements Air and Water. Gemini is of course a curious Air sign. As we peer into the undersea world we symbolically see the creatures that dwell beneath the surface of our conscious perception, and it opens us up to the unconscious energies of our emotions, as represented by the Water element, and to the submerged psychic structures of our personalities.

The aspects surrounding this extra-powerful New Moon are also intense. The ruler of the eclipse degree, namelyMercury, is found in Venus-ruled Taurus, while Venus is retrograde in Gemini and therefore in mutual reception with Mercury – making this a thoughtful time for examining the relationships in our lives. Mercury is a mere two and a half degrees away from Jupiter, in close conjunction. Their midpoint matches the degree of Saturn in Libra, another Air sign, to the minute, making a tight quincunx or inconjunct aspect. The exuberance of Jupiter is therefore muted by the contraction and sense of limitation represented by Saturn. The keyword of the quincunx aspect is “adjustment,” and this is another signal that we must take stock of our actions and their consequences. A further form of contrast is revealed in the Air and Water elements, representing conscious and unconscious forces. This theme is also symbolized by the highlighting of Chiron and Neptune in Pisces. The New Moon makes a square to these two undersea and instinctual planets, located in the Water sign of Pisces. Mars is also in opposition within a degree to Chiron. This modern planetoid, only discovered in 1977, and called the Wounded Healer, astrologically refers to these same unconscious depths. With Chiron invoked, and with Venusnewly retrograde, we might truly begin to have a deep look under the covers of our motivations and be surprised by what we find there. If we have the courage, open-eyed, to face our inner wounding, we will be rewarded by greater self-acceptance and eventual happiness.

Of course, besides Neptune, the other outer-planet archetypes looming now are represented by the oncomingUranusPluto square, which perfects next month. Indeed, Pluto also stands out in this potent configuration.Jupiter is sesquiquadrate to Pluto, and contra-parallel, while the Sun is also contra-parallel and Mars remains in trine with the lord of death and rebirth. Chiron in Pisces makes a close sextile to Pluto, just as Uranus draws to within 2 degrees of the forming square. With Pluto so strongly emphasized and with the eclipse itself so powerful, we are in for a time for weeks to come that will try our souls, and allow us glimpses of our own private underworld. The good news is that these trials will also allow us to rise above and to become in the process more whole.

# 2 – Here’s Jo Dunning’s take on the solar eclipse energies…

This Sunday, May 20, at 4:24 PM, PDT, there will be a Solar Eclipse that happens only once every 25,920 years!!!  It will last just over two hours.  On the West Coast of the United States it will be from 4:24-6:42 PM, PDT and will be at its peak at 4:47 PM, PDT.

Your location will determine how much of the eclipse you will see.  The full eclipse will be visible from parts of China, on across much of the Pacific, to the West Cost of the United States and across the Southwest United States.  Then the sun will set and the eclipse will no longer be visible.

Even if you can’t see the eclipse, the wonderful energy will still reach you wherever you may live!

If you want to see the eclipse, do not look directly at the sun during the eclipse without proper protection.  Sunglasses are not enough! The intense light can still quickly and permanently damage your vision.  Only use special solar glass filters or solar glasses designed for solar viewing or welders glass.

There is an easy and safe way to watch the sun as it moves through the eclipse.  You can simply stand under a tree and look at the pattern of the shadow of leaves on the ground as the light filters through them. Their shadow will be the shape of the eclipse of the sun.  Or you can spread your fingers apart and lay them on top of each other in a waffle pattern.  The light that goes through your fingers onto the ground will also be the shape of the eclipse and will change as the eclipse progresses.

This Solar Eclipse is created by an alignment of our Earth, Moon and our Sun.  However, the amazing energy of this very rare event is created by the simultaneous alignment of our Earth, Moon and Sun with the Central Sun of our Milky Way Galaxy located in the Pleiades.  This Central Sun is named Alcyone.       

This is the alignment that only happens every 25,920 years!!!

For the Earth to move into this alignment with our galactic Central Sun, we must pass into a powerful Photon Belt.  Our planet moves through this photon belt only once in our 26,000 year orbit around the Central Sun of our galaxy. The photons have a very powerful affect on our consciousness and all life on Earth and in our solar system!  They are essential to our life, health and functioning!   The huge influx of photons create and end of one age and the shift into the next.     

We are shifting now into The Golden Age!!!

Photons are very high frequencies of light, which also have the capacity to change to matter and then back to Light again!  Our bodies absorb the photons from our Sun when they touch our skin.   Einstein discovered the speed of the vibration of the photon as it moves around the nucleus of a cell reduces the effects of gravity.    

Photon speed is what produces levitation in very Light filled Beings!!

Our solar system is moving into this photon belt right now!  The photons are filling our Earth, our bodies and our consciousness.  This huge influx of light is affecting our body, our mind and our emotions.  We are absorbing more and more Light which is increasing our vibration and changing our perspective about all of life! We are all in the process of transformation!!! 

The old ways are leaving, our body is being cleansed, our sleep patterns are shifting, our old emotional “baggage” is being cleared out, our mind is unable to function in its old ways, outdated beliefs and habits becomes glaringly obvious, our relationships are changing and our life is moving into the chaos of change and on into transformation.

Perhaps you have been experiencing some of these things!

With so much change going on inside of us right now, this is the perfect time to draw in and focus the full amplification offered by the photon energy.  We can use this energy to create a more graceful and comfortable passage through the changes and into Awakening! 

(Jo is offering a special activation to assist with the integrating these powerful energies. You can find out more at: http://www.jodunning.com/Public/UpcomingEvents/index.cfm?semID=727&view=1&requestTimeOut=100)

# 3 – And speaking of the eclipse, there’s more! Here’s an invite from the folks at Go Gratitude to an eclipse-related event…

“There is not a source of not Well-being. There is not a source of sickness. There is just the disallowance of wellness. In every particle of the Universe there is that which is wanted and lack of it.”— Abraham

Solar eclipse, accelerated awakening, radiation update, doing what you love, and a little Abraham on the side.


# 1 – Here’s an update from shamanic astrologer Tami Brunk, at astrologyforearthrenewal.com, on the upcoming eclipse and other cosmic happenings…

Why This Eclipse Is Extraordinary

… to help us understand how extraordinary it is that we have the Earth, Moon, Sun, and Pleiades all lined up at one time.

Within less than 10 degrees of the eclipse we also have Venus, Jupiter, and Mercury all falling in the signs of Gemini and Taurus, and within the Constellation of the Bull. So if you panned out  from this very imaginary picture, you could see these planets as well (check it out on your I-phone app day of–really incredible!)

Another Reason 2012 is Significant


There are several major events in 2012 that point to it as a pivotal moment of transformation and change. One is that December 21, 2012 marks the end of the Mayan Long Count Calendar.

Another is the alignment of the Winter Solstice Sun at Galactic Center, very close also at the end of this year. We have 3 exact hits of the Pluto Uranus square, and the extraordinary Venus Transit across the face of the Sun on June 5 and 6.

This eclipse is another of those markers, particularly would have been for the ancient Maya that built the great pyramids at Chichen Itza. because it occurs conjunct the Pleiades on the Solar Zenith or “Day of No Shadows” when the Sun is at the top of the sky in this part of the world.

It is significant enough that we live within a 36 year time frame that can only occur every 26,000 years, where the Sun is conjunct the Pleiades at the top of the sky on this day–but to add a total solar eclipse on this exact day makes it an extremely rare event.

We Can Co-Create With Great Mystery 

So how can we work most powerfully with this event? My teachers have taught me that at these moments of great transition and change, we can all empower ourselves to work with the celestial mysteries to consciously co-create our future.

During very special moments like this, our conscious, joyful, and creative participation sends a signal to the Universe that we are ready to play our part as fully empowered human beings and masterful co-creators of reality.

If we understand the underlying dynamics that we are working with, we can set our focus deliberately on empowering the outcomes that are for the greatest good for the planet as a whole and our global family, both human and more than human.

Threshold Between Taurus and Gemini

The Eclipse occurs at the intersection between 29 Taurus (the Pleiades) and 0 Gemini. What is the alchemical magic of this intersection of very different energies?

Since June of last year, when Jupiter moved into Taurus, humanity’s dharmic leading edge has been Taurus. Often sparked through our experiences of challenge, upheaval, and trauma as our world rapidly changes, we have been learning the value in taking life one step at a time, being fully present in the moment.

Many of us who are sensitive to energetic shifts and changes have been feeling overwhelmed, anxious, cannot sleep well, feel overly charged up and at risk of shorting our fuses. Too much time spent in front of computers, TV, exacerbates that problem, and leads to exhaustion.

We are finding that we must spend time in our bodies, tending to our sensory, physical being, as Taurus helps us to do. I have been spending several hours outside every day in nature, often barefoot, frequently lying on the ground, putting my hands on the earth on trees, putting myself out there in different kinds of weather–rain, high winds, feeling the body of the Earth as an extension of myself and a source of healing, grounding energy.

A Special Note on the Pleiades

The Pleiades, interestingly, has been associated very much with the “Star Beings,” higher vibrational energies that have an interest in caring for our Earth and waking us up to love and higher principles so that humanity can come into a harmonious relationship with our home planet.

They have also been associated with groups or “circles” of women or men, and I like to consider that meaning and empower it. I have seen that another fundamental need for all of us at this time is to have regular circles of intimate friends and loved ones, where we can experience simple gratitude, sharing of our stories, love, and sacred ceremony–prayer, silence, and communion.

Embodying Taurus to Prepare for Gemini 

Even as today’s Super New Moon is in Gemini, and we have a lunar eclipse in Gemini in June, followed by a Venus Transit to the Sun in Gemini on June 5/6, and we are beginning a new Venus in Gemini Cycle on June 12,  Jupiter moves into this sign as well on June 12–signalling that Gemini is the new dharmic path for humanity.

Meditations for Sunday

I believe that this eclipse represents the moment where we fully embrace and digest the Taurean mastery of living in the moment, honoring our bodies, feeling our intimate connection with the Earth, and the circles of community we have gathered. We can meditate on what it means  to create Heaven on Earth–bringing consciousness into this earthly experience so as to celebrate it, savor it, feel it in our bodies as life force, as gift, as ecstasy.

It  is when we claim this wisdom and embodied knowing fully, setting the clear intention to carry this way of being into our future, into our transforming culture and world, that we are ready to enter Gemini’s terrain. We are grounded enough to enter the realm of the Magical Human, dancing through the chaos, and finding the game, the playfulness, and the True Story in it.

Gemini Mysteries to Come

I will write more later about this, but in the meantime, check out my article on the upcoming Gemini Venus cycle. I have found that Gemini is the most challenging of all the archetypes to “capture!”–and this is the wrong approach! As a Gemini Moon woman myself, I will court the experience and knowing of the Wise Fool/Eternal Youth with fun, and enjoyment of the journey itself… and so may we all.

# 2 – A message and audio presentation having to do with the radiation situation from Adrian Goad at Emerald Essentials

We feel it is our duty to inform you of substantial matters that could have widespread effects on the public.

I ask that each of you please take the time to hear my interpretation of the events unfolding today in Fukushima. This is a very serious situation with potential global health consequences for thousands of years.

Many organizations, scientists, and government officials in both Japan and the United States are banding together to draw worldwide attention to this matter.

Please take the time to hear this very important message. It is a message of how we can work together to ensure a positive outcome both now and for our future generations.

# 3 – And speaking of radiation, here’s several updates from the newsletter from Natural News…



# 4 – The Shift Network is hosting a presentation on Saturday, May 19th, by Marcia Wieder about getting paid for doing what you love…

Few in the coaching world have created the level of impact Marcia Wieder is personally responsible for, and The Shift Network is excited to announce that Marcia will be hosting an exclusive call: Dream Big. Earn Well. 4-Steps to Getting Paid for Doing What You Love.   This call will deliver to listeners the right tools at the right time to turn their dreams into reality.

 And isn’t turning our dreams into our reality what we all deep down inside want?  Even if we’ve created a level of success, we are called to continue to dream and achieve.  Marcia has coached the highest of high achievers to even greater levels of world-shifting impact, including Jack Canfield and Shift Network founder, Stephen Dinan.

 So, the question becomes, “What’s important to you and what are you willing to do about it?Manifesting those heartfelt, inspiring visions for our lives is at the CORE of living a life that we love – filled with work that we love.But most of us are good at seeing the dream, and then we get stuck in the actual manifesting part.

# 5 – Christian Pankhurst, who was voted “Britain’s Next Top Coach” back in 2009, is launching a new program for accelerated awakening and offering a number of free video trainings…  

Here’s just one of them!

# 6 – And some words of wisdom from Abraham…

“Let your dominant intent be to feel good which means be playful, have fun, laugh often, look for reasons to appreciate and practice the art of appreciation. And as you practice it, the Universe, who has been watching you practice, will give you constant opportunities to express it. So that your life just gets better and better and better.”-— Abraham

Astrological update, radiation update & protection, being of service, Abraham & a new resource


# 1 – I’m  posting this a few days later than planned, but this astrological update from Chris Flisher is still pertinent…

Week of May 7th

An interesting earth-centered alignment brings about a necessary planetary lesson for us all. Mars, Mercury and Pluto reside in the early degrees of earth signs and foster what’s called a grand trine of harmonious and yet transformative energy. This may be an especially fertile time for enlightenment and a recasting of our collective views about our wonderful home base; the planet. New methods and strategies bring forth a glimmer of a hope and a chance to repair that which has been faulted through neglect and greed. Use this creative time to expand and expend. The Sun joins Jupiter and shines a light on abundance.

# 2 – For those seeking more information about the current radiation situation, here’s part of a message I got from Mike Adams at Natural News

I was up pretty late last night, delivering a 2-hour LIVE event which turned out to be a 3.5-hour live event full of excellent, active questions from all the participants. I want to say THANK YOU to all those who participated.

Many of the questions were about Fukushima fallout and what might be happening in the USA and Canada. To help answer those questions, I’ve invited nuclear industry expert Arnie Gunderson to be the featured guest when I host the Alex Jones Show this Friday on national radio.

It all starts at 11am central time (12 noon Eastern, 9 am Pacific) and Arnie joins us roughly 30 minutes into the show. You can listen to the entire show at no charge atwww.PrisonPlanet.com

The show also features Dr. Len Saputo, who will be discussing holistic methods forradiation protection. This is sure to be one of the best shows I’ve ever done for Alex, so don’t miss it this Friday!

(For those looking for a great natural product that is recommended by Dr. Rima and others for its multiple health benefits, including protection against radiation, check out Emerald Sea. It’s one of the few supplements my body always tests positive for as far as wanting/needing.)

# 3 – I can’t remember if I’ve posted a link to this article by Chellie Campbell before about winning through being of service, but it is definitely worth repeating…


# 4 – A friend of mine told me about this site. I haven’t had time to really explore what’s there yet, but it looks like it could turn out to be a valuable resource ….


# 5 – And some food for thought from Abraham…

“There is no state of physical decline or damage that you could not recover from—none—not any, if you knew it… If you wanted it and knew that you could. And that’s those miracles that they talk about every day. They’re not miracles at all, they are the natural order of things. But because they are rare, people think they are miraculous. They’re not. That’s the way it is supposed to be. You’re supposed to thrive.“— Abraham
