When we’re teenagers we are certain we know everything, especially more than our parents. We may not fully comprehend that wasn’t so, even through our 20s. Yet we need to learn by experience, first-hand, and often repeat the same lesson to be learned over and over and over until it sinks in.

Then we change our mode of action and our lives get better. This is the pattern year after year. Probably to our last breath in this dense physical plane before shedding our bodies and being fully in the light of God.

Much is stored in our closets, our basements, our attics, and our inner sanctum of self. How much clutter is in your home and car? Your subconscious. How much can be gotten rid of? On Celebrity Wife Swap Jermaine Jackson’s home revealed clothes, shoes and luggage everywhere. Including hallways and many rooms, blocking furniture to sit on, even a room with the most light shining in, unable to live in. Daniel Baldwin’s wife called him a Hollywood Hoarder.

He refused to go through the clothes and let go of anything, nor move it anywhere. His wife named him a shopaholic who, when out of town also buys more luggage to bring more clothes home. Perhaps get rid of the excess great amount of unnecessary baggage (luggage). Someone in a similar position might move excess to a storage facility, move to a larger home, build onto the home, or perhaps build their own storage on the property, if unwilling to let go of anything.

We are unaware of what we are hoarding in our subconscious. It’s not in plain sight. Yet it blocks us from getting comfortable, and blocks the light.

You may have heard about this month, April, being a ‘biggie,’ astrologically. I spoke on my show last week about finding things in my subconscious I didn’t know were affecting me, and how the planetary occurrences this month are able to affect us all in examining what lays deep inside us.

The Gregg Braden Retreat coming April 25-28, in Sedona, addresses ‘The Gift in the Shift.’ Many people feared December 21, 2012 as the end of the world, and one of his past books explained it was not death physically, but rebirth, he taught by the physics of time. We had an important heavenly square in the skies Jan. 1, 2014 which didn’t get any publicity, but April has amassed a viral buzz.

In between a Lunar and Solar Eclipse this month we have a once-in-more-than-many-lifetimes, square on April 23. This one, I’ll explain so you can understand for yourself, is a rarity, and certainly bringing a shift ‘on earth (as it is in heaven.’)

Eclipses, themselves, always bring change of fate and destiny. Mind you, astrologers know that there is an orb of time before actual timing, so we have already been feeling it, and it is getting closer, stronger.

Pluto takes 248 years to make a full circle once through every zodiac sign. It will be at 13 degrees Capricorn. Uranus takes 84 years to make one full circle. It will be at 13 degrees Aries. Jupiter takes 12 years to make one cycle. It will be at 13 degrees Cancer. And Mars takes 2 years to make a full circle and will be at 13 degrees Libra.

You notice they are all at 13 degrees, but they are also in the only 4 cardinal signs in the zodiac. Cardinal signs Capricorn, Aries, Cancer and Libra are the signs that bring in the 4 seasons, the equinoxes and the solstices. They are action starters. 13 degrees of a cardinal sign is called a critical degree because important things occur there. Considered a stress point to a gateway. In fact the U.S. sun sign is 13 degrees Cancer, perhaps at a turning point or transformation. What’s been beneath the surface?

Here we have been given a grand square in the sky of major proportion, of extreme action, set in between two eclipses which also bring a change of destiny.  Yes this is an important shift.

Flow with it and it can change your world for the better. Eclipses affect us for six months to a year or more, so the reconstruction is for the best new destiny. Don’t change yourself for the better, by being more unconditionally loving and of integrity, seeing the larger picture, and you will feel like being in a closed box.

Here’s my personal example to date. I prefer not to fly, but to see my family it is about 8 days on the road round trip, not counting the visitation that includes driving from city to city. Trains no longer are direct due to previous hurricanes along the route and now would be about 6-7 days round trip with $1,000 for every night having a place to lay down to sleep. Busses also won’t take me there; I’ve researched it all, and I wouldn’t want a motor home type vehicle, or bus, unless it were a private bus, so flying prevails best, right?

I kept putting off making the reservation until I felt I could deal with it, then some resistance showed up. To hear the sum of the ‘crazy’ synchronicities that were given me about this by the universe, watch my most recent show, but in a nutshell, I closed my eyes and focused inside myself, asking what deep and hidden feelings of not feeling safe and peaceful were still active within me. The experiences appeared right away in my subconscious memories.

I had long ago put the people involved in their rightful place of white light, knowing we are all God’s loving beings in truth, but not realized I still carried the safety issues, unresolved in my subconscious.

Beginning this practice, I was shaking and crying a bit about the subject of flying, which surprised me, consciously, but as soon as it was suggested that I begin imagining my new life of safety and peace I was completely calm and have been since.

I opened my eyes in the sanctuary and in front of me were large windows. Leaves on the trees and bushes were ever-so-gently swaying. Then I noticed I could see the sunlight shining through the back windows behind me, just by gazing at the front windows. All of a sudden the back door opened as I continued looking at the front windows, and I could see sunlight replace where the back door had been closed before, and I saw people leaving through the now open door.

Eventually the back door closed and I couldn’t see any exposure any longer. There was nothing at all left to see. It disappeared as an image. Disappeared. The back door never opened again as I sat there blissfully looking through the front windows.  To me that signified, spiritually, that the subconscious safety issues had left and the door had closed permanently. It all had vanished from sight.

Also over the past weeks I dealt with a lot of incorrect information and glitches about several subjects. Being a person who prefers patience to frustration, I don’t take out uncomfortable feelings on others, so no yelling. Those choices keep me in my calm and I get more with honey than bitterness. I persevered and one by one many things resolved in my favor. Those still left I calmly continue with, in faith that all resolves well.

These kinds of things, regarding your own life, are what will be coming up, or are already, during this shift. As above, so below. Square means challenges for us to find our way out of the box. It is divine timing to evolve on this planet, by living in the light versus putting energy onto frustration. We’ve always had the choice (like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz) to just click our heels knowing our heart is the miracle.

Have you been keeping up with reality? Not theTV show kind. Read on because I am giving you background about the life-changing event weekend coming to Sedona beginning April 24, which you may feel called to witness and participate.

‘Finding the Gift in Shift’ highlights Keynote Presenter, scientist, internationally best-selling, pioneering author, bridging science, spirituality and the real world; member of the Evolutionary Leadership think tank, Gregg Braden. He is presenting co-creative workshops Friday evening, April 26 and all day Saturday, April 27.

You can learn more about this brilliantly insightful Retreat, including other exceptional events and speakers presenting over the weekend, at www.heartwisdomjourneys.com , email:  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., or phone 928-451-4670, choose when you desire to attend, and receive your ticket.

A quarter of a century ago, groundbreaking experiments began proving with undeniable evidence, that a web of energy connects everything. This is way beyond just the internet. I am talking about the energy of you, your thoughts, words, actions, and those of everyone else, in fact everything, creating reality. 

In a nutshell I am telling you how profoundly we effect everyone and everything on our planet; also that we each hold the power to healing our own suffering, creating joy, abundance, and bringing peace, to even nations.

Some of you have lived in this super (thesaurus= brilliant, excellent, first class, superior) natural reality for decades, living the miracle as usual reality, and some of you may be hearing about it for the first time. I hope you are curious and brave enough to step up and into a real life reality that is simply and naturally miraculous; best-quality, superb living, our birthright.

During the Retreat Weekend Gregg Braden will share insights from his newly-released book, The Turning Point: Strategies for Thriving in a Time of Extremes. This will be the only opportunity to spend personal time with him in the U.S. this year, as he, again, is touring the continent, to enrich lives throughout our planet.

As an astrologer I can affirm that big shifts have been occurring and continue to occur. In fact the dates of the Retreat are some of the impactful shifting times. I, for one, am thrilled and grateful to have Gregg Braden here during those days to more profoundly reveal how we can change the way we respond to the ‘new’ world, sharing the latest scientific-esoteric-blended discoveries, which hold the life-affirming keys for the greatest transformation of thinking and living the world has ever seen. We’re told this can happen for us in only hours, at the workshop!

Where better in the world to receive these insights during shifting dates, than Sedona, which has the most vortexes, and every species of vortex. Are you ready to be part of this creational event? Answer your inner call.

Now a bit more about New York Times bestselling author, Gregg Braden  Best known as a pioneer in bridging science and spirituality, his resume reads as a former Computer Geologist for Phillips Petroleum during the 1970s energy crisis. He worked as a Senior Computer Systems Designer with Martin Marietta during the last years of the Cold War. In 1991 he became The First Technical Operations Manager for Cisco Systems, where he led the development of the global support team assuring the reliability of the internet in its early days. 

 

For more than 27 years Gregg explored high mountain villages, remote monasteries, and forgotten texts, to merge their timeless secrets with the best science of today.

His many paradigm-shattering books are in 27 languages and 30 countries. You might want to watch ‘The Divine Matrix’ DVD to grasp the mind-boggling, life-propelling evidence of our human capacities, ready for you to harness and utilize any time.

Selected as the source for the made-for-television feature, ‘Entanglement,’ ‘The Divine Matrix’  is now a textbook for college-level courses exploring new discoveries of science and our relationship to the world.

You might also be enthralled by the DVD ‘The Living Matrix’ you can watch on the internet. The stories you will watch are backed by scientific evidence of recognized degreed experts you will see, setting the stage for your being willing to take your life, from career, relationships, finances and health into your own, perhaps newly-realized, super-phenomenal ‘hands.’

He has presented his seminars and trainings to Fortune 500 companies, the U.S. military, international businesses, and is featured in media specials on the History Channel, Discovery Channel, National Geographic, ABC and NBC.

Gregg’s Sedona Retreat Workshop is hands-on, intimate and co-creative for you. Simply clearing the path for yourself to attend, trusting that it is more than worth the effort, is one step in seeing proof that your faith is rewarded exponentially. I call it being divinely guided. 

You’ll practice using your newly-discovered power, demonstrating to yourself that you hold the ability to speak directly to the force that links all of creation. How wonderfully your choices and life will play out, ownng the knowledge and practice you will receive.

Come play in divine light, divinely timed, in divine Sedona. Be sure to come say hello. I’ll see you there!

Love and its facets. Love and its feelings. Love is life. Love is the beginning, the middle, the evermore. It is what we yearn for and even when we have it, we want more. Love fills the cup, then our cup expands. The root is God’s love and the most important human love is self love.

 

Into the light from the womb we emerge and mother’s love has already been growing for us, for months. When we appear, the parents’ love toward us can swell in ways beyond imagining. That soulful connection leads to our being fiercely protected by their love. So much so that we might be let go into our destined journey with others to care for us.

 

No matter whom mothered or fathered us, or how, we were following our spiritual decision that would hopefully bring about stability of deeper internal understanding, that there is only love, under wrappings of past experiences that didn’t feel like love. Time allows us to remove the wrap and be authentic in who we all really are. Love.

 

Add a romantic partner and friends ‘having your back,’ and we think we’re set. Romance and friendship take work, sometimes just like a job. We are required to look deeper into ourselves in order to learn how to climb hills or mountains for us to evolve higher.

 

That, in a nutshell, is why we are here. Relationships provide both nurturing and challenges in order to look within. Some relationships will be let go. What was the blessed teaching gift it gave us? Pointing fingers at others delays our own growth.

 

People fill with love just by gazing at we, the wee newborn. Oh to be gazed upon endlessly with affection, another’s fingers gently breezing across our head, our forehead, our ears, being held, kissed, lulled and sung to, as when we were a child.

 

We’re not newborn, yet to mother father God, we are always precious and unconditionally loved. Imagine feeling held in the arms of an angel. That is as real as a memory. In fact, that may be our deepest memory and our future and eternal bliss.

 

Being held precious by other humans may be a physical reflection and copy of the real preciousness we vaguely remember as our spiritual truth. We, as human, strive to be as loving as spiritual love. Here on planet earth, is training ground.

 

As we grow from the crib into the bed, and even beyond, we often don’t notice how painstakingly our parent or caregiver arranges schedules to meet our needs. Babysitters are carefully selected. If the parent isn’t home for dinner it may be because they are earning financial security for you. The parent and child may miss each other when apart, like a knife to the heart might feel. Love is bliss, love can hurt. Transmute the hurt into gratefulness.

 

The child growing is told ‘no’ sometimes in stern ways and may begin to feel unloved, not realizing it is love that said no. A child may observe a sibling being loved and feel less than. Though really only dark imaginings, it may feel  real. Receiving a box of hand-me-down clothing from a relative who owns a fabulous store full of wondrous wearables that their daughter wore first, a growing child may feel less than.

 

Observing the parents struggle with another sibling who may be needing discipline often, the child may love their parents so much that he or she doesn’t bring their own confusions or traumas to them, not to further burden them, not understanding that building steam with no outlet will burst somehow.

 

The child may run away from home. The child may begin to emulate others’ habits not in their best interests.  It may take years or decades to undo.

 

Truth is, there is only love, yet some things aren’t taught as training. Just like medical practitioners weren’t taught basic nutrition or talk therapy as preventative or curative medicine and are now handing out dangerous medications like candy. Parents and growing children may self medicate to blot out feelings they don’t know how to handle.

 

Love is listening, encouraging others to express their feelings, confusion, overwhelm, hurts, etc.  You don’t have to be the parent. When someone tells you they feel uncomfortable and wish to talk it out with you, do you put it off until it may go away? Do you turn your back until the person is no longer in your life?

 

Love is a valuable commodity. Call it by many things, it is what we all are nourished with.

 

Romantic feelings and dating starts very young. We learn by experience. Thank those who played the game with you. We have gained a lot from their part in the play, making us better at loving.

 

When we miss people, be grateful that the feeling of love in our hearts is still there. Whether lost to our life through years, or on the other side of the invisible line of life and death, or gone for three weeks or just missing them while they are at work today,

 

Love knows no space or time. How blessed we are to have love or loved. Have you learned to love God or fear that God is the Punisher? Have you learned to love yourself beyond judgement? Then you can feel joy and wholeness right now. Tell Yourself what you think only someone else should tell you. Treat Yourself to a gift, or movie or vacation.

 

Life is your mirror. You may be getting the mirror of expecting to be hurt, left, disrespected. When you raise your own frequency of life and love within yourself, watch what happens.

 

Oh love, thank you God, universe, holy spirit, divine loving intelligence, source energy, for loving me eternally. I am willing to notice and feel your love. You show me I am whole. You encourage me to open my arms to more love. You nurture my heart, in times of missing human love, filling me with gratitude for every little thing in life, to meditate on, that you have given me, to feel  unbounded awe, by your holy love.

The 20th Annual Sedona International Film Festival has been going on. Usually people are walking on the Red Rocks path ways here, year round, and no matter how many visit Sedona at one time, the rocks are still never crowded, considering the vastness of Sedona’s trails and unbelievable views. 

 

In these ten days of visitors from all over the world peppering Sedona to see incredible films and documentaries, it’s kind of funny to see the actual sidewalks full of people. Walking from their resorts to their restaurants, and their movie theatre, as we have eight theatres in small-town Sedona.

 

Do you think we Sedona residents like films?... with eight theatres in our very small town? Actually we have even more locales to view films and stage performances. Yes, Sedona is home to a multitude of creative minds and hearts; from all modalities of art, music and film, and Hollywood legends, icons as well as those whose names aren’t on the tip of our minds, live here.  

 

We’re close enough, even by car, to  Palm Springs and ‘Hollywood’ without almost daily freeway snafus or accidents, pretty much crime free, fresh mountain air, the scenery movies are made of, and an underlying presence of spirituality, mystical wonder, and peace.

 

Sedona inspires creation. The spiritual souls of mankind are filled with God’s magnificent inspirations, and to live amidst natural art, everywhere we look in Sedona, evokes magical feelings that energize living itself. We can never encompass every awesome sight available to us.

 

Every nuance of the sun or clouds paints a new picture that evokes a larger breath in, stimulating our bliss. You may know that Sedona was the famous backdrop for so many iconic movies of the old west. 

 

I was walking from my car to one of our theatres the other day during the Film Festival and noticed a man dressed in all black, with a lot of black hair, walking to likely the same place as I.

 

Without typecasting a type, my natural thought was that he was involved in a film, perhaps from Los Angeles, where many films are made and brought to Sedona, if chosen from thousands, to have a showing. Over the years I’ve seen many people dressed in all black during Film Festival days, and made the same supposition …a Hollywood type. 

 

Coming from the New York City area, myself, I’ve come to notice those in the TV, music and film industry wear a lot of black. I, myself, like to wear black. Sometimes I sparkle like glitter similar to those on the red carpets because I grew up around the show biz glitz arena. If you’ve followed me, you have read that I was a recording artist, etc. But I also like Color, whether soft or bold, and creatively inspired pattern and design.

 

Turns out I was right. After the film that I had been walking over to the theatre to watch, he was introduced as the creator. Turns out he was also the main character (I hadn’t seen his face). In the film he stated that creativity doesn’t come from logic but from what’s beneath the surface. It was a film about relationships and making film, and we were able to notice that some of his camera nuances mirrored what came from deeper thoughts and feelings bubbling to the surface from relationship experiences.

 

Pay attention to what’s beneath your surface. That’s what shows in our actions, though we may not know what motivated certain behaviors in our self and others. An actor often says to the director, what’s my motivation in this scene, before he portrays his character. The writer already took the time to think about what lays deep, to have laid out the book or screenplay.

 

For years now, into adulthood, I have come to realize that examining my motives, either before or after a situation, helps me know myself better and tweak a happier, healthier-minded me. What was my part in a scene’s drama, what can I learn from the movie I write, star in and produce? Who plays a part and why?

 

One of the perks of the Film Festival is that usually the players; producer, director, stars, speak to us from the stage, afterward, answering questions.  I wanted to stay and listen to him yet I was called to take part in my own movie. My own video production show co-stars texted, could I take a spontaneous meeting to prepare for the next day’s shooting.

 

I’m ready for my close-up, Mr. DeMille.

Some of you are working your little butts off; whether hard labor or tons of mind stuff. On top of that, you’re literally sweating, or sweating nervously for approval of your work or other efforts.

 

Some, in the midst of this busyness are juggling personal issues weighing on the heart; perhaps waiting for calls about a loved one facing challenge, a child needing to be picked up from school for behavior, your people delayed with snow at the airport, or just feeling exhausted or under the weather.

 

Will you be willing to shut down at least for a minute or more? That’s what sleep is for. Our heavenly creator gives us little choice but to surrender and shut down, hoping we will rest and be reinvigorated from eight hours of turning off. It’s also when solutions come to us in otherworldy dreams.

 

In the midst of waking hours we can surrender and put ourselves on a sort of sleep mode, too. If you get 15 minute breaks in the morning and afternoon of a full-time job (which you should be legally receiving from your employer), head for the break room and lay down with your eyes closed. You will be surprisingly refreshed after your break.

 

While relaxing, make efforts to turn off your mind. Be assured what you need to know and remember will still be there after your shut down. Some chant silently Nam Myoho Renge Kyo, others Om, or Hu, or Om Mani Padme Hum over and over to counter usual sentences we are desiring to silence for a rest.

 

The aim is to be quiet inside. In between sentences. which are attempting to continue in your inner mind, notice the silence and nothingness in the spaces. A goal is to stay there…in the quiet. Let the spaces expand. Soon the words will get the picture and take a break too. You are in charge and they will only quiet if you coerce them to silence.

 

It may seem counter to a productive day, especially if you believe you must stay on top of things. You will find, however, that giving yourself permission to shut down, recharges you as if you had sleep. Once you open your eyes and start up again, your mind and body become more alive and running with all systems go, versus feeling overstimulated or taxed before.

 

In the rest time an actual answer may pop into the quiet. With heavenly Spirit always awake within our selves, it may take quieting your own monkey mind to hear divine mind.

 

If a mantra isn’t your cup of tea, perhaps an affirmation, like everything works out beautifully for the highest good. Or sing yourself a favorite lullaby in your inner ear, imagine loving Spirit holding and rocking you to peace and faith, a beloved ancestor spiritually stroking your head and whispering how loved you are.

 

Don’t get break time?  Make time. Perhaps the rest room is really made for rest. TMI? Why would it be called Rest room?

 

You can even sit where you are, anywhere, and change your mind. Take a breath and shut down your mind. Feel barren of thought. Allow no thought in willingly. Affirm I am refreshing, reinvigorating, knowing inspirations flow to me in divine timing. Just observe what is going on around you without judgment, stop and really see, and be grateful for the beautiful flowers, wind on your face, bird chirping in mystery, picture on the wall, money in your pocket, the health that you have, simply noticing that you are alive, alive with endless possibily, and that you are… love.

 

You are one with the quiet still small voice that says Know That I am God (God being peace, grace and love).

Yes, it really is my birthday. Well, not as I write this, but hopefully it will be published for you to read on February 7. It’s interesting, isn’t it, how our date of birth holds a magical feeling for us?

 

 Unless you don’t like your birth date, but I would imagine that is a low percentage of people. Is it because of age? What a gift to be living long. Each moment can turn a new corner, unexpectedly, and bring new love, a new child born to the family, a new friend, a reuniting, the dream job, freedom from a chronic issue, you name it.

 

 Remember just as electricity moves up and down through the air, we have biorhythms and if you feel down, up is next.

 

 Why do I like birthdays? Because people show they care, by saying so, calling, emailing, carding, phoning, gifting or surprising. It can be sprinkled with fairy dust. But even if not, I know it’s a special date to me and I sparkle inside.

 

 I can’t expect people to remember my birthday, they have their own lives and busyness to live. Especially if it’s males. Isn’t it usually the females that mark calendars and reach out?

 

 Since now you know I was born on February 7, do you also know that it is that time of year when the Sun is always located in the zodiac piece of the sky that is called Aquarius?  In this day and age most everyone living in civilized conditions knows their sun sign. What’s your sign? That was the saying of the time years ago when meeting a potential date in a social situation.

 

 Back in the day, before then, hardly anyone knew their sun sign. And that wasn’t too long ago. Before the computer, cell phone and such. Would you agree that finding out someone’s sun sign gives you a peek into some characteristics that person may be influenced by? For instance, Aquarians can be interested in things that are unusual, unique and ahead of the time. Astrology, for instance.

 

 A Pisces may be an avid movie watcher, artistic and sensitive. Aries may be spontaneous and competitive. Taurus likely interested in financial security, ownership and touch. Gemini will tend to be very communicative and juggle many things at once. Can You attach traits to zodiac signs? You can take these and play with it. Ask your nephew or uncle when he was born, or what sun sign he is, because I’ll bet he already knows. Tell him you’re playing with it, list a characteristic or two and see if he agrees.

 

 Cancer loves home, mother and family. Leo exhibits pride and tends to stand out. Virgo is detail and service oriented. Libra all about beauty, harmony and relationships. Scorpio exudes intensity and sensuality. Sagittarius loves to travel and learn, while Capricorn is serious and hardworking.

 

 Do you agree? If not, then keep in mind astrology is more than your sun sign. Moon sign is Really who you are as an emotionally instinctual being. Mercury how you think and communicate. Venus how and what you love, Mars what stimulates and motivates you, etc.

 

 We can think of every moment as a new birth moment, every day like springtime, in that we don’t have to wait for New Year’s Day or our birthday for changing and upgrading our selves.

 

 However on your birthday, you take on a new number. Add month and day to the numbers of the year, so for me, 2 and 7 and 2 and 0 and 1 and 4 makes the new year’s number for me a 7. Each number gives insight into what kind of year it will be. One is new beginnings, two partnership or love, three communication, four things become solid, five brings exciting changes, six new perceptions and answers come, seven is spiritual; God has the wheel, eight is power and money, nine letting go of outworn things.

 

 One more thing, the moment the sun revisits the same degree and minute of the zodiac sign where it was when you were born; in my case 18 degrees and 40 minutes Aquarius, …is the Actual time of your birthday every year. Your birthday may actually occur a day before or after what you think it is. So some years my actual birthday is on Feb. 6 or 8th. I was born at night, but this year my birthday occurs early in the morning on the 7th, because that is when the sun is at 18 degrees and 40 minutes Aquarius.

 

 In some countries the birthday person makes the party and brings the food and drink. I’ll be sharing an Aquarian party with a friend from this tradition and we will provide the fun for our guests.
