When I went to hear Deepak Chopra lecture, I took a picture from my seat of the stage. I saw this light happen as a I snapped a picture. It actually showed up in my photos.
Sometime ago, I posted a quick blurb on Turtle Stones of Conesus Lake, NY. I was surprised at how many people emailed me and commented. What is a turtle stone? Rock hounds get ready. These beauties form naturally along the Conesus Lake, NY shore, and creek off shoots. They seriously look like turtles. There is a lot of myth and legend connected to these rocks, most root in the Seneca Indian Tribe and their legend. I have posted a copy of the Legend for your reading enjoyment.
Turtle Stones and the Legend of Bare Hill- Ray Lavato
Before the first European settlers came to what is now Conesus, it was the Land of the Senecas. The following story, from the Ganondagan State Historic Site, recounts the origins of the Seneca people and provides an interesting explanation for the turtle stones once common along the Canandaigua Lake shoreline.
The Seneca are known in their own language as “Onondowahgah,” or people of the Great Hill. Tradition relates that long ago, two men paddling home from a hunting trip found a small, brightly colored serpent floating on a leaf. They put this serpent in their canoe and took it home. The people were much amazed and the whole town fed the snake. The snake grew until it was no longer satisfied with insects or mice but craved rabbits, then deer, and even bear. When the people became exhausted from feeding it, the great snake broke out of its pen and began eating them. So huge was the snake and so ravenous its appetite, that soon it ate all the people of the town. Then it began hunting human beings, going from town to town, spreading terror and death. Finally, all were eaten except the people who lived on a great hill overlooking Canandaigua Lake.
There, in a dream, a boy and girl were told to make a bow of white pine, a string from the girl’s hair, and an arrow of dogwood tipped with a pure-white arrowhead. These two, the last survivors, shot and killed the serpent. As the snake died, its body rolled down the hill into Canandaigua Lake, disgorging human skulls. To this day, no trees have grown where the serpent rolled down the hill. It is said that the round stones at the bottom of the lake are the skulls.
The boy and girl were the first People of the Great Hill, the founders of the Seneca Nation. “This is the period when the Seneca people were beginning to live on Bare Hill,” Peter says. “The first time it appeared in print was the book on her life. This is why the Senecas are known as the people of the snake.”
When you are empathic, psychic, indigo, or any other WOKE ASS entity, you often feel isolated or alone.
Does Anyone ever have these feelings?
Why am I not like them?
Why is this so hard to relate to?
Where do I fit?
Why is this so hard for them/me to understand?
On your path to self discovery, enlightenment, and other worldly exploration, you will often feel alone. Here you are this spiritual being, coming to earth to learn lessons, and you feel alone and definitely isolated. Simple social situations leave you awkward, and just forget crowds. You start to think that there is something wrong with you.
I am here to say, there is nothing wrong with you, and EVERYTHING RIGHT with you makes you feel this way. Because you are WOKE, and connected to the Universe and you know it. You know there is more, you breathe it feel it, live it. Sadly, you are surrounded by many “sleeping souls” who have not made the level up transition or shift so many are having. So, don’t try to wake them, don’t try to get understanding from them, and don’t lose faith.
They have to come to enlightenment and a raised vibration on their own. Perhaps they will in this lifetime, perhaps they won’t. It is not your, mine or anyone else’s job to try and convince them. They are not ready and will not be able to feel or see what is going on.
With this said it is very important to find your “tribe”. Your soul tribe are people who may not have the exact same beliefs as you, more than likely they do not. However, they are the ones that get it. That truly understand what is going on.
How can you tell your tribe? A lot of times it is instantaneous. We go about our way and since we are emitting a higher frequency we naturally attract those who are doing the same. It is not always easy, but when you find these people HOLD on TIGHT. They might be the only ones who will make you feel like you are not losing your ever loving mind, no matter what you believe.
So dear reader, do not fret. There are many of us who fly our “FREAK FLAGS HIGH”. So pull up a chair, pour some coffee and know we are here with you.
Hello dear Readers… It has been awhile. I have so much to tell you.
With light there must be dark, and to exist we must know that one cannot really exist without the others. The Universe decided’(yes, I said the Universe) that I must go explore Zach Bagans Haunted Museum in Las Vegas Nevada. Funny, how I go to a place of delights and pleasure, and immediately get sucked into visiting this very dark, very heavy ,highly interesting museum.
I don’t believe in accidents. I think everything is connected and we end up doing precisely as the big script has written for us…..
For those of you who are not familiar with Mr. Bagans, he is that strapping man on the Ghost Adventures Show, with the adult Pauly D hairdo. Zak is drawn to the dark, explores haunted places, and has recently gotten deeper into much darker things, likes demons, possessions, serial killers and cryptids. Seems like he dabbles in all arenas of paranormal. He walks that thin line of remaining in the light, but leaning into the abyss. (I get the anxious feeling in my stomach recalling some of the exhibits.) Seriously, this place is heavy. I kept looking around, thinking someone put a great deal of effort, care and detail to this mass of twisted, cursed items.
Off I went alone to the museum( yes, I am strong independent, empathic light worker, no I was not afraid). I got this……
When you get there you are told to line up, and fill out a waiver. Said waiver basically says, “ You are on your own, and if you get a demon possession, you are shit out of luck”. This waiver also applies to your unborn children.( I am not having any so PHEW)
Security confiscated my backpack for the tour, and there are NO pictures, videos or impromptu other dimension portal opening allowed.
In the tour there are about 30 rooms, of various sizes. The price is a little over 40 bucks, which might seems steep, but for real , this place was worth it. Zach has been meticulous and somewhat darkly obsessed, as you can clearly see when walking through the exhibits. I could smell SAGE and SWEET GRASS, but the tour guides assured me that they did not use either there.
Some rooms are devoted to haunted objects, possessed dolls, or serial killers. Zak has done a very thorough job collecting macabre items , including Charles Manson’s false teeth, a Dybbuk box and the barn belonging to Ed Gein( serial killer who inspired Psycho). He even has Jack Kevorkian’s death van, where he did assisted suicides. Amongst the curious things he has amassed, several possessed dolls, graphics crime scene pictures, prison paintings from the most depraved(not name dropping, but John Wayne Gacy) and cursed objects from around the world.
To the right you can see Peggy the doll. She is incased in glass and is reportedly pretty evil. Seems everyone who comes in contact with her, dies, goes crazy or has chest pains. Zak is running the worlds longest EVP session with her. When we went in that particular room, we were instructed that we must greet Peggy and then say goodbye to her as we leave. She seemed pretty chatty through that spirit box. Our tour guide said she really has a thing for him, and when he gets near she can’t stop talking
He even has the stairs, dirt and artifacts from his famous DEMON HOUSE, he purchased and made a movie about in this museum. It is clear this has been his life’s work and soul’s passion.
As I walked down the dark hallway I saw a pair of large framed glasses looking from behind a curtain at me. This person kept peeking from behind to see if my group had walked past. When he thought it was safe, Zak himself came bolting out to the hallway and ran the opposite direction from hence we came. Such a silly, lurker of a man.(said in adoration of course) .Perhaps we triggered one of his items. I honestly feel like this whole museum is wired to catch anything paranormal. I do hope he protects himself, and remembers to always lean out of the abyss, back into the light when he is done.
I would have to give this museum a five star rating. The cast was interactive, the exhibits were amazing, and the expression in Mr. Bagans soul is a very interesting.
It is important we stay in the light, and seeing this place, reinforces that on so many levels to me.
I would not recommend this to any children (EVER), people who are sensitive and not able to protect their mojo. It was almost TOO MUCH for me to handle, but I just kept wishing every item love, healing, and light. I made sure to keep myself safe as well, as the last thing I need is to bring one of those darklings home. Zak your work is dark, but ever so important. https://thehauntedmuseum.com/
So, if you are in Las Vegas and want a disturbing, yet fascinating..good time…. CHECK IT OUT.
Hello, my name is Cynthia/(truly Charlemagne's daughter). What would you like to know? I grew up in Western NY(brrr cold trust me). I am a true Pisces, explorer of life, traveler, and soul adventurer. I am not satisfied with seeing something on tv. I have to touch it, feel it, see it, wrap my own brain around it. I tend to see the world creatively, and with curves instead of lines. It use to be a stressor as a kid, not anymore I see it is a gift.
I have always had an interest in people and other beliefs. So, much so that I became a therapist. I think all people can get what they need, and get excited for others success. Like most in the helping field I am a healer, empathy(clairsentient) and a light worker. I have had my share of tough times, and have managed to keep evolving. I think it is so important to take care of your soul,whatever that looks like. Let's chat..
THINK BIG… then DOUBLE THAT THOUGHT
Every time I take pics, I always look for anomalies. This one is in Sedona, and it is called Snoopy’s belly. No clue what the smear is, could be a bird, a plane, or an ascended master?( I wish). When I play with the color of the pic, the smear seems to have depth to it, and the inside gets darker in spots than the outer ring. Things that make you go hmmmm.
Why has this been so hard to write? I simply love tarot cards. I have ever since I was twelve years old. I think that the art work on some of the decks is so great, and can be so enticing. All the drawings, and hidden meanings, and possiblities.
I will admit I consult my cards a little too much. Some say it is insecurity, and it might be. I might use them to hush that nagging what if voice we all get from time to time.
I will be honest, I even argue with the cards. They have never let me down if I think about it. They always have the message or answer I needed, but sometimes I do no want to hear it. I will say, no... that can't be. Wrong. Wrong Wrong.....
The only one who is ever wrong is me. I guess tarot cards to me are like Cassandra from Greek mythology. Cassandra was a maiden who tricked Zeus, and was given the gift of seeing the future. Except since Zeus is well Zeus, and he was mad, he also made it so no one would ever believe a word she said, and think she was crazy.
I am not that bad, but I do need to have more faith. Ask once, and absorb the answer. Let it ride.
I have used many different decks in my days. There is one for everyone, vampires tarot, witches tarot, classic tarot, cat tarot, World Spirit decks... on and on... I am currently using the a steampunk deck. It suits my sensibilities for sure, and I love all the amazing images on them. Whatever you fancy, or are drawn to they make a tarot deck for that.
I keep them wrapped in a silk cloth in a drawer. I try to respect them, and give them good care. Some people like to use them both right side and reversed. .I prefer to use them all right side up, for a clear meaning. I don't believe in BAD CARDS either. All cards are good, some just have deeper layers we need to explore. I cleanse them with sage from time to time, and leave them on my urban alter for a good recharge. We have bonded for sure.
When I get neurotic (who me?) I go seek another reader to read me, as I love to hear their interpretations, and let them mull over what is laid out.
When I am looking for a YES or NO I use one card. I will clear my mind and think of one question. I will pull one card and mull it over.. Simple. ONE CARD ONE ANSWER... DEAL WITH IT.
Sometimes I use a three card spread past, present, future on matters when I need to have a quick, but meaningful look at this journey.
When I really need some information I use the Celtic Cross spread. I can also continue adding cards to get more specifics.
A good resource I have found is this lovely site. https://www.llewellyn.com So, much good information on there.
They even offer a free online, computer generated tarot reading if you are so inclined. For me it is all about interpretation, but it can be fun to play https://www.llewellyn.com/tarot_reading.php
I hope this at least gets you started. Please feel free to email any questions. This is really a big topic, and it is loaded with nooks and crannies. Happy reading.
So, I am an explorer I think we can gather that. I am explorer of places, information, and enlightenment.
Recently I saw video where the term ASCENSION SYMPTOMS were discussed. From what I gather when we are ascending spiritually we basically fall to crap, physically, mentally, emotionally. It is alleged that it is a painful and uncomfortable metamorphosis. The creator of the video also stated that when he began ascending, he developed rashes, and chronic pain. He said it went on for several years. As we wake up and begin the ascension we shed the false self. We .............cause ourselves suffering. He stated he had to move away from what he assumed was the right path, and open himself to his true self.
It has me thinking. I need to learn more about Ascension Symptoms. Below is what I have found on this topic.
The physical symptoms are there, but there is no medical reason for them, because the cause is not something physical…
In many cases there are physical symptoms which come up during the process of ascension.
Aches, pains, headaches, anxiety, sleeplessness, depression and despair. You might even feel like you have a prolonged "flu like" state. There is even some belief that immune disorders could be connected as well. You will want to go home, but don't really know where that is, and you surely do not fit where you are. Your relationships also change , people come in or leave your life. Sometimes it can be so painful, and isolating when that happens. Sad as this may all seem, it is a necessary process, of letting go so we can move to a higher level of being. I mean we are trying to upgrade our DNA..... of course it will not be easy.
You are ascending. In other words, you’re becoming lighter, increasing in vibration, and expanding consciously. A part of the process of ascension is releasing and transforming density in the physical body.
Have you ever gotten goosebumps for no apparent reason? Well, I have. Over the years I have gotten chills for no real reason, or a reason I could not identify.
I had people tell me different things, a evolutionary throw back mechanism, to someone is walking over your grave in the future. I guess I never put much thought to it.
Since, I only get random chills on my right side of my body it is perplexing. Heck, for all I know it could be a stroke.....( j/k I do not think I am stroking out, just yet. )
Recently, I have been working from home. Everyday, around 11:11AM I get a chill that runs up and down my right side. From my head, down my right arm, to my leg. It is not scary, it is not alarming, it is just perplexing. Why is this happening?
Upon researching this phenomenon it appears I am having spiritual chills. This could mean a whole host of things. I am tucked away safely in my home, so it is not a bad vibe. There is no wind, no ac and I am generally alone. They are not unpleasant at all, just more an electricity or vibe . I am usually working, and focused, and then I pause. The chills do their things, and then I resume.
I mean who hasn't gone to a place that was heavy with pain or a place of sorrow, and felt chills. I know I have, but this is a little different. I fully expect those chills when I am at a funeral, or a place where something terrible has happened. I had the worst chills of my life when I visited a concentration camp in Germany. It was 90 degrees out, and I shivered through the whole place, so much my fingers and toes felt numb. Now, that was something I can never forget.
I get cold chills at holy places as well, churches, or temples. I attribute it to there being so many years, and so many layers of praise, sadness, and jubilation in one spot. The emotions in layers have left a mark. Music can do it as well. Really, powerful, heart felt music. The kind that speak to your soul.
The chills I feel at home now, are different. There is no heaviness, or suffocating feeling attached to it. They seem to be more of a HELLO, or HEY.... this is important. I will assume these chills are different, and positive in this instance.
Could this be connected to a deeper spiritual awakening? ( HAVE TO SAY I HOPE SO, would be so welcome!!)
Some report those chills, are your guardian angels trying to give you a nod. Like if you were talking about a road trip, and feel those, it means GO THERE. If they happen when people are talking it can also be a truth detector. Like what we are talking about or seeing is TRUE, and valid. LIke, a universal nod. Some report that when you are thinking of a loved one, who has passed. Perhaps, someone you lost, and they are gently letting you know, HEY... I AM HERE.. and I still love you. Is this a spirit trying me to get to pick up the line for them?
All these things, would work for me. I have decided for the next several months to become mindful, and track the who, what , where, and how of the chills. I cannot recall any event, thought or action that might cause these. Perhaps, my mind is so busy working, I have not paid it proper attention. I am hoping to learn my own personal truth about what they mean. Will keep this open for now.
I have to say I generally have always cleared my space or environment with Sage. Sage is wonderful, strong and smells so good to me. You can almost sense the protective nature of it as it burns.
Recently, I have begun to hear about Palo Santo sticks. Seems they have been used for sometime, but I somehow managed to miss the boat, go figure.
Palo Santo sticks or "Holy Sticks", was used by the Incas, holy people, and indigenous people of the Andes. Some people burn them alone or add them right to the sage bundle, as they do not burn quite as easily as sage. Some people use the oil in massage, and healing practices, but I prefer the actual wood sticks.
You can buy them most hip and evolved New Age stores, or even on Amazon. It is important though to get real Palo Santo wood, not just wood soaked in oil. Real wood is from a tree over 90 years of age, that has died and been curing on the ground for few years, before it was harvested.
It is reported that burning them can help with meditation, clear spirits, lift bad energy and purify your space. It is the sibling to sage and cedar it seems to be a silver bullet when you need grounding or feeling emotionally weakened.
Several reported uses: common colds, flu symptoms, stress, asthma, headaches, anxiety, depression, pain management and inflammation. I am always working on raising my vibrational frequency, and many believe this beaut can help. I am willing to give it a try.
The smell is great, like citrus and pine. Like with most cleansing, you light the sticks, blow them out and let the smoke fill the area. Always use a fire proof bowl, or Abalone shell( safety first)When doing individual spaces, walk in a counter clockwise manner, and make sure you have your intentions set. What do you want from this cleansing? It can also be used to cleanse crystals, pendulums and other special objects.
Finally, when cleansing yourself, as we all get vibrational ick, by living and interacting with well with LIFE, start at your feet and move slowly up to the crown of your chakra(above your head.. wink). That ought to do it.
Here's to hoping for a raised vibration, good health and a cleansed space.
How to start? You will probably never, ever get to read this...
Dear Mr. Robbins... No.. Dear Tony Robbins... No... Dear TONE....
scratch that here goes nothing...
Hello.. as you can see we love all things awesome. We are open to new experiences, ways of thinking and growing. We see you offer some pretty interesting seminars, that offer to change people's lives. Wow.. sounds amazing....( actualization, I mean come on). I am sure you do change people's lives. However, for the amount of money you are asking to provide such a change, well that leaves many of us out in the cold( no hot coal walking for us). Do I think you earn your money? Why yes. Do I think everything should be free? Heck no. I am just saying some of us would love to see you, write about you, and learn from your wisdom, but not for 4,000.00. I mean is there a price for wisdom, whole other conversation there? Anyways (that is like an ok used winter car money amount or trip to tropical paradise money, not to dwell, but OMG). I mean do I want to bask if self love, and sit in the sun? Do I deserve to go, for sure..It is probably better we can not afford you(4000.00).
I mean if you met us, clearly you would love us so much, and then it would just get weird. I mean, really.. could get awkward.
Just checking in.... Take care.. and keep on keepin on.
P.S If you are Tony Robbin's dog walker, dry cleaner, mail carrier, or his third cousin twice removed, you are lucky. If you see him let him know we got our eyes on him for sure.
Let me start by saying I love acupuncture. No, I do not love needles, but that sleepy, half aware feeling that you get when you have it done. For those of you have had it done, you know what I am talking about. For those of you who have not, you need to. Go get stuck, they are not pencil thick needles, they are hair fine ones. You do not feel it, and the benefits are great.
Short list of things acupuncture reportedly can help, the claims are really endless and recently they have found acupuncture to be super helpful for reducing side effects of chemotherapy.
- muscle issues spasms and pain
- chronic back problems and pain
- headaches/ neck pain including treatment for migraines
- knee pain
- digestive problems
- mood, depression
On this road to healing, I have learned many things. So many things can help, there is never a time to lose hope, you could not have tried EVERYTHNG, even though on the bad days it might feel like you have . This is a huge POSITIVE, and can help keep us in a good mind set.
The one thing I have learned on the negative side about holistic healing is the cost.
For some reason it is not covered by medical (although some acupuncture is now being covered.. yay for progressive thinking). Often time processes can run into the hundreds closing in on a thousand dollars depending on what it is.
I am not rich. I aspire to be rich, but right now I am still earning a living like everyone else. I had heard about this new thing in my community. It is called Community Health Acupuncture. Basically, it makes an expensive service affordable to all. They let you set the rate of what you feel you can pay. WHAT?? There is no pressure, no hidden agenda, but a place that offers a true healing service for the right price/reason. Amazing.
They tell you to come in 15 minutes early to do the paperwork. After that is done, you are lead to a room full of recliners. Most have sleeping, acupunctured people in them. You get comfy, blanket and all. They advise you to wear loose clothing as they need to put needles in your legs and arms. I actually had a few in my ear this time. It was a very pleasant experience, and I scheduled to return next week for a follow up.
Below there is a link to the place I went. I am hoping this is the new wave of the future, where people can get quality care and reap its rewards. Rochester Community Acupuncture, you get a GOLD STAR from me....
I am a pretty self aware human being. I think you can gather that from this site. I feel like when I get a reading there really should not be too many surprises. Recently, my partner in crime told me about a specific author who communes with the Guardian Angels, Karyn Reece. She had a really positive experience so I thought well, let's give it a whirl.
I have to admit I was excited, as I actually had a few specific questions I was seeking some direction on. I think I know the answer, but sometimes confirmation is what I need. We arrange a time to talk over the phone. I dial she answers. I am ready to hear from my angels. We exchange greetings, and then she pauses.
Omg, you are part Fairy!!! I am like huh?
She then goes on a spiele about the fairies and what that means to me. She talked a lot about fairy magic, and then pulls some cards from the fairy deck. Nice cards... She did talk about my guardian angels, but kept circling back to the fairies. She stated that I will always have abundance, and people will always be drawn to me. She stated thatI am gregarious, and always looking for fun. She also said that my positive outlook, and spiritual gifts are connected to them. I think I like this reading....but not at all what I was expecting. I have many a reading and no one has ever said anything like this.
I have to admit, I was set back and this was a revelation I have never ever been told this. After my call I share with Shade, and no she was not told she was part fairy. She then goes on and says it makes sense to her as I tend to " dance" while I walk.
Huh, so I did some research and found this check list that gives you some of your own indicators if you think or are told you are part fairy.
All countries have their versions of fairies. There is a strong Celtic connection. Apparently there are records dating back a very long time ago, where Fae and Human reportedly married. They stated that certain last names, like the O's or Mc's are often connected to this lineage, due to the Milesians invading Ireland, god knows how many centuries ago . Here are some other interesting traits that might make you think you are part fairy.
You love trees, almost to obsession.
You love nature and feel your strongest there.
You have to be by a window , when sitting inside.
You crave sweets.
You love the color green.
You have a developed Clair ability
You can not stand people who litter, or ruin the environment.
You have a mischievous sense of humor.
You love shiny things and things that sparkle.
This is just a short list, and there are many books about this topic if you need more information. Fairy blood or not, fairies are just interesting. Perhaps most of us have a bit of fairy lineage.
Happy Birthday to me.. Happy Birthday to me...
I have survived another trip around the sun. So, what does a life explorer choose to do on her birthday? I spend it eating cake, and then going to get my ears candled.
What is ear candling you ask? Ear candling is the process where you lay very still and a flaming funnel is essentially stuck into your ear. You lay there for about 35 minutes, while the cone burns down.It is a bees wax covered cone, that burns towards your head, while stuck in your ear. The gentle vacuum effect of fire causes debris to be drawn up the candle toward the flame. It is some people's deepest belief that coning is part of resetting the body so it can heal itself. It has been done for centuries by the Hopi Indians, and Egyptians.
Sounds like fun right?
Why would I choose to have a flame so close to my head? Great question, let's talk about it.
As you have read if you had read any of the other posts, I am risk taker, a life adventurer. I am open to new experiences and ways of managing my life/health. Although this is not the first time I have done candling, it is the first time I had someone do it for me. Yes, dear reader I have stuck a paper cone in my ear and lit it on fire, praying not to perish in a fiery accident. I would not recommend doing it alone ever, but I was young and weird. I had no one at the time willing to help. Now I am older and weird, and know where to look for my tribe of weirdies, who are more than willing to assist me.
I get to the place, and the woman is very happy I have chosen to do this for my birthday. We get chatting and her is the low down. She is a homeopath, and studies natural healing. We go into great detail about possible benefits from candling, her kids, her studies, and places to visit. Probably, shouldn't chat the person up who is candling your ear, as we got so involved we let one burn too low, and I nearly got burned.. My fault..
Now, I know science and traditional medicine scoff at ear candling, but really don't they scoff at anything they cannot prescribe? I mean has any medical doctor ever really agreed with anything that is not textbook? I figure I can make my own mind up. Mind you I still would NEVER EAT A TIDE POD, no matter what.
- Clears wax/gunk in the ear canal
- Relieves pressure in the ears, stops tinnitus
- Sharpens mental functions, vision, hearing, taste, color perception
- Eases earache, headache sinus pressure, allergies
- Relaxer, as it has a pleaseant scent
- Acts as a catalyst to clear nerve endings and promote healing
At the end of the session they can show you what is in the bottom of the cone. Not for the weak of heart. All grossness that had reportedly been in your ear.
Ear candling is not a cure-all. Like I have always said if you are sick, see a doctor. Get lots of information and opinions. This is another thing I try to move towards a more natural self healing.
Do not over use it. Just like anything, too much of a good thing becomes a bad thing.
- Ear candling is not recommended for 1) People who have a hole in their eardrum. 2) If you’ve had tubes in your eardrums 3) If you have difficulty breathing where small amounts of smoke is a threat.
Session should be spaced 7-10 days apart.
P.S. If you do consider trying this, read up on it, and make sure you find someone you can trust to help you. I sadly did a search and found ear cones at W@lmart, which brings up all sorts of imagery... Use your head (literally, and figuratively) when trying something, and lastly have fun while you explore.
Ever had something that keeps popping up?
A month ago I saw some youtube video on the meaning of 11:11. I had never considered that particular sequence so much until recently. I was sitting at my desk at work recently and this lovely young co worker yells out it is 11:11AM. I do not say much, and for the next week she continues to repeat this behavior. She then innocently walks over and says, "What do you think it means?, Every time I look at the clock it is 11:11. ".
I believe in synchronicity and it is hard for me to imagine stumbling upon the amazing 11:11 on the youtubes, and her randomly shouting this fact out is all just a crazy coincidence. I believe the Universe speaks to us. Sometimes we choose not to listen, but it is always communicating. So, with this in mind I will post what 11:11 means, and what it might mean about the path you or the person seeing this number sequence over and over again might be on.
There are a lot of theories so let me sum them up for you.
Your angels or guides are trying to communicate with you. The number 11 is a “master number” which signifies intuition, insight, and enlightenment. When paired together, 11 11 is a clear message from the universe to become conscious and aware of yourself and what is happening around you. PAY ATTENTION
To me it is an Ascension symptom. We are trying to vibrate at higher frequencies, get the next level, and this is one of the road signs that say you are headed in the right direction. Although Ascension can take many years, the Universe is encouraging us by cheering us on.
Sometimes during Ascension you might wonder. Is your life falling apart or falling into place? All these bad things are happening to me or at least it feels that way. Why am I always sick or exhausted? I feel so light headed. Why does everything hurt for no real known reason?
Are they really bad or is change painful no matter what, because it is change? This 11:11 shows up to remind you that the road might be long, but you are ON THE ROAD for sure. A new way of being is happening and once it starts there is no stopping it.
NO ONE EVER SAID ASCENDING WASN'T PAINFUL.....and it is messy, but worth it. So hang in there. and remember to ride the ride. Rather like a caterpillar working hard to cocoon, enduring a waiting period that may never end, just to emerge more beautiful, lighter and stronger than ever imagined.
Along this path of healing and soul expansion I check out every possibility. One of the things that I love so much is soaking in natural mineral springs. Let's think about this. The earth produces natural, hot, clean water, that has wonderful natural deposits in it. Count me in, if anything can heal, that sure sounds like it would work.
On my journey from LA to Sedona, I had found an interesting place on the web called the Eldorado Hot Springs in Tonoapah Arizona. Tonopah is a Native American word for little fire under a bush.
When I made my traveling companion pull into Tonopah, he was a bit skeptical. We had been driving across the Mojave desert and most places of the highway are little truck stop places, where you can get a good meal, and maybe some convenience store goodies(windshield wiper fluid, air fresheners, gum, 12 kinds of beef jerky, claw machine prizes, and pickles... always the pickles).
This little town at the exit seemed like the others. I, however held out hope. Luckily I did, as really just around the corner from a gas station and a run down burger place, is an OASIS in the desert.
When we arrived, (which is literally a minute off US route 10). I was taken back by the cute decorations, which consisted of old cars, vintage signs,memorabilia, and a bit of this and that. We wandered through the gate and went to the office. The owner and massage therapist were there. They were so friendly, and provided a tour of the place.
Apparently the spring has no scent, and is pure mineral water. It comes from spring that has been there for ever. It is 107 degrees, with a Ph of 8.2. There are camping spots, as well as public and private soaking. Some spots are small, some hold a group. Of course are clothing optional, best to check when you go, so there is no mistake.
When I saw the duck pond area I knew I found heaven. It literally looks like a tropical paradise in the middle of a desert. The lush trees, flowers and decorations make it seem like you are on a tropical beach somewhere. The owner charged me 15 for an hour soak. Amazing, I could not believe my luck.
There is a large place to soak, and behind it they put an old fashioned tub that has cold water in it. You can move between the spring and the tub to get a more interesting soak(hot, cold, hot, cold..you get it). When I slipped into the spring every muscle in body just turned to mush. I kept yawning and realized that I was at once completely relaxed. The water is PURE SILK. Every joint and muscle in my body said THANK YOU.
After I soaked, there was an outside shower to rinse off. Towels are provided as well. I wish I could have spent more of my day there, but felt completely happy after my soak there.
I really did not want to leave. I actually plan to revisit this place, and maybe even camp for a night or two. I would strongly recommend checking this out if you get the chance. be good to yourself and take my word or read about it yourself at
I have been struggling to write this particular blog. I have written it, deleted it, restarted more times than I can count, and purposely found other things to write about. I am starting to believe the reason I am stuck, is because of Lilydale itself. It is just too much to put into words. My words will never do it justice.
This will be my weak attempt to give a brief overview of Lilydale, NY.
Lilydale, NY sits between Fredonia, and Jamestown NY, right on Cassadaga Lake. It was known as the City of Light and then the name eventually changed to Lilydale Assemble around 1906.
It is a unique little town that was set up is 1879. The whole town was built for Spiritualists and Freekthinkers alike.
What is a Spiritualist? A spiritualist is a person who believes that when you die, you really do not die(google the Fox sisters if you want the full story of Spirituality). They believe that you still exist as much as you do in body form. Not only do you exist, but you can be communicated with. The people who live here believe this, and do communicate often with the departed. Death is not to be feared, it is just the natural order of things, and we still exist as we did here on earth.
One psychic claims the land is super charged due to so many spiritualists having lived on it for so many years.To live in this town and to own a house, not the land, you must be part of the Spiritualist Church.
I have been here maybe ten times in my life. It does cost to get in, but I think it is worth it. The place is seasonal as well, basically summer to fall.
I remember driving out many years ago wondering what this place has to offer. Will it be weird? Will it be hokey? Clearly …not since I keep going back. When I go back I sit and wonder why there aren't more places like this?
Here I found was a lovely community with super energy and interesting things to learn. Most who reside in Lilydale are licensed psychics, and you can make an appointment for a reading. You can also go to a few free gallery readings they offer and hope for a free on the spot mini reading. They often bring in famous psychics who will lecture and teach. The whole place has a very feminine energy vibe, and you can feel it while just being on the grounds. Locals report before power lines and cellphones interference, psychics of the town could move whole pianos with their thoughts and will.
There is a pet cemetery, where I left a picture of my best friend Leo, a fairy trail that has fairy houses , classes to take to increase your own gifts, drumming on Fridays and a nice beach to swim at. Sometimes they hold sweat lodges for those who are interested.
Lest not forget Inspiration stump, which is located in a LARGE grove of old growth trees. The stump sits protected as it was where the initial founders met and practiced their skills, and the power seems to resonate from it. People congregate there often, sometimes though it is nice to just sit in peace there when no one is around. I have found it to be a literal forest of solitude.
Finally, in the evening there is a Ghost tour, not a hunt, as we do not hunt ghosts, we commune with them. I am sure I am leaving so much out, but like I said there is too much to write about.
The accommodations are rather rustic as the building are very old. You get A/C you might not, you might get a private bath, you might not. Consider it GLAMPING? You really feel disconnected there, totally unplugged from the life you left, so the lack of luxury seems inconsequential.
I have stayed a few places. I felt I needed to stay at the Main Hotel, the Maplewood, for a few reasons. One it seems to a nice place to congregate. Mostly because of the paintings that hang in the sitting room. Off the main room is a parlour of sorts, with chairs, and places to spend leisure time. Hanging on the walls are amazing paintings. Some of the founders of Lilydale, one of a President, and a few of other notables, each with a story. What draws me to them is how they were allegedly created. It is said that no brush was used on some of them. That the paintings manifested from shear will. People were sitting around a table harnessing their energy and vibe and the paintings created themselves on the canvas. I look at these paintings and marvel. True or untrue, they are magnificent to me.
My other favorite thing about Lilydale are the people. One visit to Lilydale with my girl Shade, we bumped into a woman from Canada. She herself was on a spiritual journey and we hit it off. We had fun exploring the grounds with her, we ran through the woods, explored all the old buildings we could, and exchanged ideas. I think the best part was when we arrived at our homes our new friend had sent us some cards with positive affirmations and thanking us for being us. She made that trip so memorable. We in turn sent her a package of goodies that included manifesting stickers.
Sometimes it is nice and reaffirming to meet others who will listen to your free thoughts and give you their thoughts, sans judgment.
An ease…. We are all ok.
Meeting others, exploring energies/ideas and belonging means so much. If you are looking for a spiritual recharge, a place to check out of the hectic life we all live, this is the place. We all need a chance to heal, or quiet your mind.
Hopefully, in the future you will get a chance to explore, connect, and check out this wonderful place.
Let me begin with saying, when you have chronic pain and modern medicine fails you. You have two choices, lay in bed and self pity away, or open your mind to things a little less conventional that may actually work.
I chose the latter, since I can not sit still for five minutes let alone a whole lifetime. IfI learn about something that can possibly make me feel better I take the chance.
Copper.. Yes copper.
I had always heard throughout my youth that wearing a copper bracelet would help with arthritis pain. Since I was young I never knew what that meant. Now that I am wee bit older I have a large understanding of arthritis.
For those of you without it, imagine a sunburn on the inside, or a throbbing toothache in your joints. Rather unpleasant.
I have been researching recently and have found there are some amazing claims about copper cups.
The latest health claim says that drinking water from a copper cup boosts health by reducing inflammation( KISS MY FOOT..ARTHRITIS), bolstering brain functioning, aiding in weight loss, balancing the thyroid, improves skin and hair, wonderful for the spleen, slows aging, fights cancer, and acts like an anti- microbial.
Heck the ANCIENT EGYPTIANS wore it and drank from copper vessels.
Now too much copper like anything... is a BAD thing... Say no too much of anything. A little copper goes a long way it seems.
So, I have ordered one large copper water bottle, which I intend to keep by my bedside. Apparently for maximum benefits you are to let the water sit for at least 8 hours for the benefits of the copper to "charge" the water.
I will be practicing the ancient Vedic practice of drinking out of a copper cup or vessel. In India, transformed water from a copper cup is called Tamra jal. Water charged with copper is a natural antioxidant that helps balance the three doshas of our body (kapha, vata and pitta). If it helps at all with arthritis I will be elated. The other possibilities would be an extra bonus.
I am hoping for some good results. I will be sure to post any noticeable results.
Pendulums are some of the most simple, yet gratifying ways to divine the future. If you don't know what a pendulum is, it is usually a pointed stone, crystal , metal or gem attached to a chain. It is weighted so it can swing very freely. It can be a lot of things
It is also known as an amplifier, that can connect you to your collective unconscious orHigher Self. Often used for spiritual healing, simple divination, and inner growth.
For every person there is a pendulum. Pendulums are unique and pretty personal. They say the best way to choose one is to try each one in your hand and see which one feels right.
You can try each one out by asking a yes or no question, and see which one moves the best. Seriously, there is a noticeable difference, and some just flow betters than others.
After the pendulum chooses you. You can begin
- Cleanse Your Pendulum:
You may cleanse it by holding it under running cold tap water, soaking it in sea salt, or setting a clear intention.
- Decide Meaning: Ask the pedulum to show you YES. Then ask the pendulum to show you NO. This will set your answers.
Since our pendulums can not speak, we can only ask YES or NO questions. So, remember this is simple.
Set your intention and focus on your question.
If asking multiple questions, make sure the pendulum has completely stopped, before moving to the next question.
