Showing Up To Love

Do you realise

If we are to attain oneness and unity

As a human race

Anytime soon,

We had better start opening the door of our hearts,

We had better start spreading the love,

Being that beacon of light.

We had better stop holding back,

Fearing rejection,

Being polite,

Protecting our feelings.

No holding back now,

Nothing but honest to goodness

Authentic expression

Of totally ‘out there’ feelings

That radiate

One hundred per cent

Unconditional

Non-judgemental

Beautiful

Powerful

Supreme

Love

33 Steps To Align Your Connection With Earth

Today, we are taking a journey towards authenticity and interconnectedness with Earth.

Go through the following steps to activate a new relationship with Earth, Goddess Gaia and with yourself. By doing this mindfully, you are activating new programming that empowers your earth star chakra and awakens your deepest connection as a child of Earth.

Each step takes you closer to fulfilment.  The steps don’t have to be followed in the order they are arranged here, take each step as it presents itself to you.  You are not finished until you complete all the steps. If you can’t go out into nature to do this, it’s okay to visualise it.

Step 1 – Go out into nature and affirm, loud and clear, “I acknowledge and accept my connection to Earth.”  Really feel it.  When you make this acknowledgement, something fundamental shifts between yourself and the Earth.

Step 2 – Standing in nature, notice there are beautiful roots going down from your feet into the Earth, they extend through earth, sand, rock, crystal.  You become aware of the true beauty and wonder of Earth. Honour it, say out loud, “I actively honour the Earth.”

Step 3 – Go to any place you find beautiful in nature and really see it.  Breathe in the beauty.  Enjoy the beauty.  Be grateful for the beauty.  Know that all beautiful places are power spots, they are raising your energy simply by being there.

Step 4 – Go out in nature and walk on the Earth with awareness, knowing it’s a two-way connection.  As you’re walking, be very aware of your energy going right down into the planet, and at the same time, know you are receiving energy back from the Earth. 

Step 5 – Actively give your light to Earth through your twelve chakras. Go into nature and call on Archangel Michael and ask for protection. Now, standing still, open your stellar gateway chakra above your head, allowing the light to pour through it. Next, open your soul star chakra. Then open your causal chakra, your crown chakra, your third eye chakra, your throat chakra, your higher heart and heart chakras. Notice your inner light pouring down and through your chakras as you open them. Now open your solar plexus chakra, your sacral chakra and your base chakra. Allow all the light energy to flow down through the open channels of your chakras and into your earth star chakra below your feet in the Earth. See and feel the light coming right down through your chakras and then spreading out beneath your feet, at your earth star chakra, in all directions. It’s spreading peace and harmony.

Step 6 – Standing in nature, sense roots going down through your feet and into the Earth.  Within the Earth, there is a crystalline chamber at the core and there stands Goddess Gaia.  She is like a great light and your roots are going down and connecting your energy into her heart.  Her love is coming up into your earth star chakra, filling it with her love.  And then her love and light come up through your chakras into your heart centre, filling your heart with her love. 

Step 7 – Take a fruit that you enjoy.  Hold it in your hand.  Smell it, feel it, bless it and thank it.  Really appreciate and honour it. 

Step 8 – Go out into nature to touch and feel the soil.  Pick up the rich earth, smell it, feel it.  Enjoy the wonderful feeling of beautiful, fertile soil running through your fingers. Share a deep sense of gratitude and love for this earth, honour it and bless it.

Step 9 – Go out and find a special tree.  Feel, hold and touch the tree.  Thank it for being there and for all that it does for humanity, Mother Earth and the source of all-there-is. As you share your love and gratitude, sense the love that the tree is sharing with you. Honour your tree and all trees.

Step 10 – Go out and find an acorn, chestnut or any other tree seed.  Ask the elementals to show you where to place it in the Earth to grow. Give your love and blessings to it. 

Step 11 – Go out into nature and find a place where it feels totally safe to walk barefoot.  Feel the Earth, grass or sand beneath your feet.  Notice how you feel connected to the Earth when you are barefoot.  Know that this connection is activating your earth star chakra.    

Step 12 – Go out and find a flower, whatever flower presents itself to you.  What colour is it?  What does it smell like?  Gently stroke a petal and thank that flower for being in your life.

Step 13 – Go out and find a place where there’s water.  Paddle in the stream or sea, stand by a lake.  Water is sacred, water carries the pure, unconditional love of the divine source around the world.  Bless that water.  Bless it whether it’s a puddle, a raindrop, an ocean or a river.  Bless the water that you shower or bathe in, that you drink, that washes your excrement away in the toilet, bless the water that constitutes your body. 

Step 14 – Go outside and take a deep breath, this is prana, it gives you life, it is your connection to source.  Breathe in, knowing that you are alive through your breath. Give thanks for the air that you breathe every day. 

Step 15 – Be with fire, it may be in your hearth, an outside fire pit or bonfire, or candle flames.  See the flames flickering and crackling and transmuting old energy.  Know that every flame is clearing something, leaving just ashes behind.  Be aware that something brand new is replacing the old.  And be aware of how awesome and powerful the transmuting power of fire is. Honour the fire energy.

Step 16 – Go outside into nature and invite the creatures and animals to come to you.  Sit quietly, lovingly and harmlessly.  Because you are harmless, animals and creatures will approach you.  A squirrel, an ant, whatever comes, see their beauty, see their amazing qualities.  Notice which animals came to you and thank them for coming.

Step 17 – Go outside into nature to a suitable place with the intention of honouring the reptiles.  Sit quietly, lovingly and harmlessly.  See what comes to you, maybe a lizard or snake.  Whatever comes, know they are totally harmless.  See their beauty and amazing qualities.  They each bring gifts and are a teacher.  Thank them for coming.

Step 18 – Go outside with the intention of connecting with the birds.  Stand or sit and let the birds come and fly around you.  Songbirds singing to you of the daily news and your magnificence.  A bird of prey soaring high in the sky, demonstrating clarity and perspective.  All the birds are teaching us about freedom.  Thank the birds from your heart.

Step 19 – Go to a green and leafy place.  Notice all the beautiful greens of healing nature surrounding you.  Marvel at the process of photosynthesis and how it keeps us alive.  Feel a sense of wonder for the greenery around you, how uplifting and refreshing it is.  Thank the leaves and ferns for all they give.

Step 20 – Go to a place in nature where there’s a rock.  You might sit on it.  It’s an ancient stone, solid and enduring.  It may have been there for millions of years, keeping and recording the history of that place.  Sit there with it and tune into it.  Maybe it has a message for you.  Thank the rock and send it your blessing.

Step 21 – Go to a place where there are crystals.  Your task is to send healing to the Earth where crystals have been dug out.  Be aware of the crystals that have developed deep, deep in the Earth, holding so much light.  Take a moment to send healing energy deep into the Earth where crystals are removed.  Send your love and gratitude to all crystals that allow themselves to be brought to the surface to fulfil a calling and that offer healing and transformation for the Earth and humanity.

Step 22 – Go outside when the stars are bright in the sky.  Sense their link to Earth and how all is interconnected.  How do the stars influence you?  Notice how vast the cosmos is and how every single star is relevant to the whole.  Send your loving gratitude and blessings to all the stars.

Step 23 – Go to the sea and call forth the dolphins.  Whether you see them or not, know they are there, hearing you.  Can you sense the compassion and healing heart that all dolphins have?  Sense and acknowledge the loving, healing compassion offered by the dolphins to you.  Thank them sincerely and extend to them your blessing.    

Step 24 – Go to the sea and be aware of all the ocean life and fish, all in their place, all doing their bit to support the vast oceans.  Every kind of fish and sea creature has a role, so thank them all for their important roles, honour them and the ocean.

Step 25 – Be still and bring to mind the entirety of the planet and all of humanity.  Every single person on Earth, like yourself, received an invitation from Goddess Gaia to be here and for many, it’s a very difficult journey.  Take a moment to honour and recognise every courageous soul that came here, whether they are good or bad in our perspective.  Honour everyone for being here.

Step 26 – Take a moment to be still.  Be aware that everything and everyone is a part of the divine source.  All are one.  Truly, deeply recognise this. Take a moment to offer your gratitude to all-that-is.

Step 27 – Go outside and feel the sun on your skin, even though you cannot look directly at it, you can feel it.  Thank the great and glorious sun for all it does, bringing warmth and light to Earth and us all.  Honour the sun.  

Step 28 – Go outside under the full moon and honour the moon.  The silvery moon is lighting up the world with gentle, soothing and healing light throughout the night.  Take a moment to thank and honour the moon.

Step 29 – There are many structures built by our ancestors that are created as energy portals.  Such are called chambered cairns, stone circles, pyramids.  Go to such a place if you can and acknowledge that it was built by wise ancestors who understood a deep and abiding connection with Earth.  Feel the connection.  Honour all these structures and their builders. 

Step 30 – Go to the mountains.  They hold high energies and beings dwell there that sing out harmonics and raise the frequency of the world.  Honour these vast places and sense their awe. Ground it through your earth star chakra.

Step 31 – Go to the forest, know that all forests of the world are connected by a great network of underground, invisible fibres and roots.  The forests are a huge library of knowledge, holders of cosmic information.  A storehouse of wisdom.  Be aware of the vast forests on Earth, honour them and give gratitude for their many gifts.

Step 32 – Go within and honour the invisible world.  The unseen shares our space.  All around us, at all times, there are elementals, angels, dragons, unicorns and spirits of all kinds.  They are helping us raise our energies, guiding us. Take a moment to thank and honour them all, for they support and illuminate our way.   

Step 33 – Go within and accept the other dimensions.  We live in a world that exists as much more than just physically.  We are multi-dimensional, multi-faceted and are surrounded and interwoven with other multi-dimensional energies and beings.  Accept them all as a part of your reality and experience, for it is the truth of your being. 

When you have fulfilled all these steps, you will have awakened light-codes and blueprints that exist within your energy field, that will refresh and reset your purity and perfection as a daughter or son of Earth.

Blessed Be.

A New Take On Authenticity

The other day, I was walking up on my mountain and entered an energy of deeper alertness towards all of nature around me. As I noticed this, I began to receive insights about authenticity on a new level.

We may think authenticity means being an honest and genuine person who is centred in their truth, as least, that’s more or less how I was looking at it. But all of a sudden, I realised authenticity goes a whole lot deeper.

Authenticity is to be stripped right down to our pure presence. Would we even recognise our pure presence if it was staring us in the face? We might call it our savage or primitive self.

We would be bare naked, not only physically but in every sense, emotionally, mentally, energetically.

And even if we stripped off all our clothes and rubbed earth or mud or ash over our bodies, we are not authentic until we do that to our heart and mind also.

Authenticity exists on that fine precipice between life and death. It’s basic, it’s knowing we are one with the Earth and nature, and living it in every moment.

A Western man was in the Amazon with a local tribesman. He was learning how to be a shaman. The Westerner asked the tribesman, “Why is it that when I walk into the forest, all the animals and birds stop calling. It’s as though the jungle is devoid of life. But when you walk in, the forest is alive with sound?”

“The forest recognises my spirit but doesn’t know yours. You smell wrong, your mind is full of distractions, your emotions are not controlled and your body doesn’t know how to move. You don’t know who you are so the forest doesn’t know who you are. You are not one with the forest.”

“How do I become one with the forest?”

“For a start, let go of all the baggage you’re carrying.”


Here are some affirmations that will empower your connection with the Earth through your earth star chakra. Look out for Thursday’s post for more:

“I acknowledge and accept my connection to Earth.”

“I actively honour the Earth.”

“I am connected to Source through my breath.”

Conscious Eating

I just went outside and sat at the table on my patio to eat a delicious plate of freshly sliced mango and banana. I sat down and admired the distant sea view, remembering the first time I saw that view, on Valentines Day last year when I came to see the house as a prospective buyer. And that thought took me to another and another thought, and choo! choo! I was racing away on the thought train.

I looked down, I had nearly finished the plate of fruit and not a single sentiment of gratitude or recognition of the pleasure of eating this fine fruit had passed my lips.

I put my fork down, sat back and took a deep breath. Before I ate another morsel, I now chose to consciously connect with the experience of eating.

First, I spoke my gratitude out loud to Mother Earth and her soul, Goddess Gaia. To the Creator, the Elemental Kingdom, all the trees and plants. To the elements of fire, earth, air and water. To the animals, birds, insects, reptiles and sea creatures. I took a bite of mango, it was delicious, sweet and juicy. Mmmmm. I savoured each mouthful and thought of the nourishment this fruit was bringing to my being.

As I finished, I took a deep breath and felt that breath as nourishment also. It was air, yes, but I could detect the moisture in it, I was also taking in the element of water. And I was taking in the light with each breath, the element of fire.

This is how I wish to eat, consciously. Gratefully.

Posted in Ascension

Moving On Up

Don’t be confused by the word ‘ascension’.

It means to move up. It refers to an increase in our vibration. We are already vibrating at a higher frequency and this is continuing.

Ascension is not necessarily about moving on from Earth by dying, sprouting wings or going somewhere else. There’s always an ongoing, natural process of ascension occurring and it’s quickening up these days, more so than has happened in a while.

It’s happening to all of us, all at different places on our journey, different rates of vibration, all moving up together, whether consciously or not. And not only us, Mother Earth is expanding, so are all the beings and living energies upon the Earth, even the elements like water, air and fire are moving to higher frequencies. Everything is transforming towards a new state on Earth where the physical reality still exists whilst a greater access to emotional, mental and spiritual energies are attained also.

It’s happening now and it never stops because there’s a constant expansion of energy throughout the universe and beyond. It’s not only the Earth, every planet, every being, even the ascended masters are ascending, really, it doesn’t stop, we are all moving closer to our truth, the divine source.

When you see the word ‘ascension’, it’s just referring to the way that life is constantly moving.

How far you expand will depend upon how much you open up to it, how much you embody the energies of unconditional love and peace that exist within you.

Let it flow.

World Healing For Ukraine

A lot of us are wondering what’s going on with the Earth’s energies that has brought about Russia’s attack on Ukraine and where’s it going to end?

When it all kicked off, I immediately had a vision of all the people who are supporting Ukraine standing in a circle around them as protectors, sending love and peace energies into the arena. I used that as my visualisation to send those energies, especially calling on St Germaine and the 7th Ray ascended masters and the Archangels and Angels. When asked, St Germaine and the 7th Ray masters bring in the powerful violet flame that purifies and transforms energies.

I wondered if the rest of the world countries would get their acts together and go there in the physical to join the circle of protection and support, after all, if everyone else stood up for Ukraine, Russia wouldn’t stand a chance. Then, I realised there was a reason why nobody would go there, Putin has had this planned a long time and he’s made sure everyone’s hands are tied somehow. Then, I found out about the pinky promise.

I would like to share something that a friend shared with me, it’s a helpful way to support children to understand and feel safer, because even at a distance, hearing about war can be quite frightening for our little ones:

“After the BIG playground fight (WW2), lots of popular kids (World leaders) got together and made a big gang (NATO), and all the kids in the gang made a pinky promise (Treaty) to be nice and respectful and not fight each other anymore.

This means not going into each other’s part of the playground (Country) without permission, and not throwing sticks or stones (heavy artillery) at each other, and the UK is part of the gang.

But then a new kid (Ukraine) joined the playground and a big bad bully (Russia) started picking on the new kid, all because he is greedy and bossy and wanted the new kids’ playground space for himself, even though he has one of the biggest spaces in the playground.

But sadly, the new kid is not part of the gang because the big bad bully didn’t want the new kid to join the gang.

We would be breaking our pinky promise if any of the gang members help the new kid fight the bully.

We have all told the bully off and stuck up for the new kid by hiding the bully’s pocket money until the bully stops hurting the new kid (sanctions) and this will hopefully stop the bully from buying more sticks and stones.

We have also given the new kid lots of our own sticks and stones to fight the bully, because this is not breaking the pinky promise!

Even though it’s really, really sad, all we can do now is stand on the edge of the playground and watch and give moral support to the new kid, because we are not allowed to fight the bully for them, not without breaking the pinky promise.

BUT… if the bully breaks the pinky promise and comes into our part of the playground (UK) without permission and throws a stick or stone at us, then the whole gang (NATO) will come to help us and we will ALL jump on top of the bully and beat him up.”

Every time I go over to the region in my meditations, I visit both Ukraine (for the Ukrainian people and the Russian soldiers) and Vladimir Putin and his advisors in Russia. I invoke the violet flame of transformation and purification, also adding in golden drops of liquid light which bring in the energy of divinity, soft pink unconditional love energy and place rainbow light codes into their energy fields. I’m aiming to do this twice a day.

Already, I’m picking up a change in the energy for the better. There’s so much positivity and love and compassion coming at Ukraine that the fear and hate and aggression coming from its aggressors is being gradually diminished, as long as we focus on love and peace, not fear or anger.

Please, if you are one who is sending your energies, please remember that your anger, hurt, hate, frustration or any other negative energy is not needed, it will only escalate the situation. 

Please send only peace, love, serenity and compassion, EVEN to the bullies!  They need to be transformed the most.

Please don’t forget that the Russian people are not a part of this, most don’t want war and are horrified that their sons, fathers, brothers and husbands are being sent out there to fight.  Please send love to the Russian soldiers, they are following orders which, like all soldiers, are strongly fixed in their energy, but we live in extraordinary times, the power of our ability to manifest peace is incredible right now, send them love and peace and they will start to lose faith in their mission.

Putin IS losing power and energy.  He is doubting his plans and his monkey mind is feeding his fears of failure before the eyes of the world.  Meanwhile, Ukraine is being empowered and is acting with dignity and a pure heart in the face of death. 

We can all do this from a distance.  We have the power, YOU have the power!  Keep it up, keep believing, keep sending peace and love.

Thank you, every one of you, who is contributing to this world healing.

Do You Know What an Elemental Is? 

There are beings that embody fire, earth, air and water. They are nature beings, tree spirits, plant divas and landscape beings. They are the conscious beings that inhabit the invisible world of the Earth, embodying the consciousness of nature.

Elementals are everywhere, every living being on Earth is paired with one. It is necessary, to activate the Earth connection with our planet because we are all a part of nature. You have one, I have one, every dog, cat, animal, being and creature on the planet has one.

Our personal elemental awaits our conception in the womb and is with us from birth until the moment we transition to the inner planes, at our death. 

Elementals are not like us, not only are they not physical, they don’t have free will.  They have a job to do, an allocated task and that is their meaning and existence.  They are like the Earthly equivalent of angels in some ways, although elementals are often not what we would call beautiful in appearance, they can appear somewhat alien and behave rather detached, even seem unpleasant.  They are not, they are simply being true to their purpose and expression.  All elementals belong to the Elemental Kingdom, as we belong to humanity. 

I have known about my own personal elemental for some years and speak to it frequently during meditations. Recently, it appeared to me for the first time. I saw a face and was given a name.

The personal elemental that goes through life with us has a remit to support our body energetically, extending through emotional, mental and physical manifestation. They work energetically through a neuro-psychological system, sending messages throughout the body and being, keeping pathways open and removing blockages wherever possible. They are present to ensure everything is in balance energetically and they weave energy, using movements and sound to keep our being online. There are times when they become confused, especially around transitions such as puberty and menopause. People of the past held ceremonies at such times to help people and their elementals to energetically make adjustments necessary for a smooth transition but modern society doesn’t uphold these processes anymore. Many elementals are confused and become out of synch with their human being. This manifests as physical symptoms.

There’s a healing system called Neurolink or Neuro Integration System (NIS) and after several treatments, I came to realise that this system is in direct connection with my elemental, bringing it back online, supporting all the manners in which it had become confused and overwhelmed, even though the practitioner wasn’t aware of it. It’s wonderful to know we have healing processes that dynamically heal and enliven our connection and we can make a healing connection with our elemental in several ways if we know how. We can use shamanic healing, acupressure, hypnotherapy or simply by visualisation and intent.

I’ve been working with my personal elemental for some time. I asked the Elemental Kingdom to update the connection between us and heal any issues and I’ve noticed changes, culminating recently in a direct connection with my elemental being. I realise that numerous conditions in my body have been a struggle for my elemental as well as for me, and some conditions have been the outcome of that struggle, especially where the nervous system is concerned.

Here are the conditions I’ve struggled with over the years; tinnitus, migraine aura, arthritis (osteo and rheumatoid), sensory processing disorder, dyspraxia, disordered eating and patella femoral pain syndrome. I’m working on fixing these issues with the help of my personal elemental, who is now more aligned with my being.

I feel it’s the tinnitus, migraine and sensory processing problems that have manifested as a result of my personal elemental being confused and I’m hoping to see a change in those conditions, going forwards. I’m delighted to have met my elemental and look forward to further developing our relationship, for the betterment of my body and being.

Amenet Drago & Mastery the Black Dragon

I first received my soul name in the summer of 2018. I was waking from sleep and heard “Amenet” spoken, strong and loud. I knew instantly that it was the name of my soul. When I received my sacred soul initiation a few months later, the name came through again. I did some research into Amenet, since I hadn’t come across this name before that I could remember.

The first information I found was about Amunet, the ancient Egyptian Goddess, female counterpart and twin flame of Amun. She is the original primal divine Goddess whose name means ‘she who is hidden’. This title refers to her being hidden in plain sight. She is everywhere, present in everything, and yet, only the initiated can see her presence because she is hidden within.

The ancient Egyptians didn’t use vowels when writing, so her name is spelled in numerous forms; Amunet, Amenet, Amaunet…

In the Akan culture, the same deities are known as Amenet and Amen. Akan is primarily present in Ghana and Ivory Coast, with an ancestry clearly rooted in ancient Egypt. Amenet is the supreme Great Mother and with Amen, they are the embodiment of Divine Union.

I am not suggesting that my soul is that of a goddess, except from the understanding that I believe we are all divine beings, so I do like to think of myself as such, but not exclusively so.

I recall several ancient Egyptian past lives, it feels like ancient Egyptian culture is the time my soul has loved the best and I remember clearly when my Earthly personality was called Meritamen, which means ‘blessed of the hidden one’.

During 2019, I made a vision quest and after that, a black dragon started to make itself known to me. I began to feel his presence during meditations. I felt a kind of awakened memory of extreme affection and deep knowing with this powerful being, so I tuned in and received his name, Mastery. After that, it was as though he was often around in the background.

Fast forward to late 2020 and I was painting my newly acquired shamanic drum. I knew intuitively that my dragon friend, Mastery, was going on the drum’s image and as it turned out, so was my soul, Amenet, in her Egyptian form. As I tuned into the energies, four words came forward to be painted along the rim of the drum; Soul, Dragon, Mastery and Amenet.

I knew these words were intimately bound to my soul calling, and somehow, they arranged themselves into Soul Mastery and Amenet Dragon, but when I painted the last word, I intuitively stopped before I painted the last letter. Soul Mastery became the name of my soul mission and I realised that Amenet Drago was the true name of my soul, although I sense that Drago is more a title than a name. They are now an intricate part of my identity.

Later, I asked my soul group, the collective from which my soul extends, to tell me about the relationship between my soul and Mastery the black dragon. They told me of a distant time on Earth when people and dragons walked together. A time we know as Lemuria. It was not like nowadays, humans were not restricted to the physical realms, they had a great many more abilities than are awake in humanity currently. A dragon and a person could create a partnership that was deep and abiding. They would achieve many marvellous things together and my soul was such, a Drago or dragon walker.

Eventually, as humanity faced a corruption of their energies, the dragons retreated to the inner planes, but the deep bonds remained. I believe there are many people alive today on Earth whose souls are calling in their beloved dragons again. The dragons are here in the energetic to be with our souls and help us fulfil our soul purpose. My dragon is working with my soul as we support souls who are transitioning through the process we call death.

On New Year’s Eve night as 2021 ended, I received guidance from my soul group explaining how Mastery and I are here to support the Truth Maker souls who are choosing to transition at this time from their Earthly existence to the inner planes. As they transition, they are creating powerful energies of truth which are grounded for humanity’s ascension. This work often takes place during my sleep and when I’m engaged to journey as a soul guide.

I humbly ask that I, as my personality, Ananda, will always be the conduit of love and peace that my soul, Amenet Drago, and my dragon, Mastery, require to fulfil their truth and purpose.

Seeing The Light: Death As Birth

Imagine you’re sent away from everyone you love and who love you, everyone who understands you. Imagine you go to a place where existence is difficult, not least because you have a bad case of amnesia and can’t remember who you are or where you’re from.

Perhaps, you don’t feel like you belong, as though somewhere, deep down, you know you’re not home. Despite this, it’s not all hard work, there’s a lot to learn here, you’re becoming more aware of your truth and enjoying the delights that life has to offer.

Then, one day, through a situation that makes you think it’s the end of the road, that your life is over, suddenly there’s a great light. Life has brought you your death because your soul called it. It’s time to go and Life has finished with being your teacher. You didn’t want to die but the light feels so peaceful, so calm and so full of love. You’ve never felt anything as wonderful as this before.

But wait, wasn’t this what home felt like? All of a sudden, you know that your true home and true soul family and everything you’ve always been missing is right there on the other side of the light.

You only wish to enter the light and go home, nothing has felt more blissful, more beautiful, more right, for as long as you remember. You know there are loved ones that you’ll be leaving behind, if you go, but you instinctively know it’s their home too and one day they’ll be with you again. And you know that, from where you’re going, you can visit them whenever you wish.

As you step forward to enter the light, you experience the greatest surge of the most profound bliss and love and peace. It cannot be understood except by being there. You are simply aware of your oneness with all, your love of all, your divine unity.

Your true form, as a being of light is revealed to you. For a moment, you sense yourself suspended, floating between the indescribable beauty of planet Earth and the divine light before you. In that moment, the surge of love and truth that opened you up and revealed your divinity, is grounded and anchored into the planet, like a shaft of lightning. Mother Earth is present and she gifts the energy of that moment to all the beings living on Earth. This is your gift to your loved ones on Earth, for in this moment, you love every being in equal measure. In the next instant, a connecting cord is untethered from Earth and you are free to gently drift into the light.

As you enter the light, familiar figures come forward with beaming faces to greet you with such heartfelt love. And you know, at last, you are home. It’s as though you have been reborn and you’ve finally woken up from a strange dream.

Hummingbird Shaman

This is a picture-led post and this stunning image caught my eye. It’s a hummingbird-shaped naturally occurring ice feature discovered in a Michigan yard, photographed by Tammy Shrive, via LOCAL 12 WKRC-TV.

Then, in the usual synchronicity that the universe provides, I caught a fascinating TV programme all about hummingbirds.

There was a time when, in my shamanic practice, I called the directions using the Four Winds system. In this South American system introduced to me by Alberto Villoldo, serpent is in the south, jaguar in the west, eagle or condor in the east and hummingbird in the north.

In shamanic terms, hummingbird is connected to our awakening, our vision and the epic journey of our soul. Hummingbird brings courage and resilience and is the symbol for those whose lives are specifically focused on the journey of their soul, and I count myself as one.

Hummingbirds are migratory, spending winter in the South American rainforest, the Sonoran desert and the Andes mountains and travelling as far as the Canadian border for summer. They travel up to 23 miles a day, their heart beating 1,260 times a minute and their wings beating 15 – 80 times a second.

Across the species, they range from 5.5cm up to 13cm in length, and that includes their long beak and tail.

Living on the edge, hummingbirds exist at the very precipice that is the energetic trade-off between how much nectar they need to fuel their flight and how much flight is required to find the food. They literally dance between death and life every day.

They live at high altitudes where oxygen is thin, reaching their limit at around 43,000 feet. To achieve this, hummingbirds maximise the oxygen molecules in their bodies, which makes them uniquely equipped to live in the mountains.

Because of this, hummingbirds don’t have enough energy to sleep, they have to go beyond sleep and enter a deeper state called torpor every night, which is dangerous, another way they dance with death. Torpor means their heart rate drops from 1000 beats per minute to 70. Their nearness to death and association with a deep state of consciousness could be seen to label them as ‘little shamans’.

Hummers can fly forwards, backwards and hover in place because their wings are different to all other birds. Instead of rotating from the shoulder joint, they have a short arm and rotate on the wrist joint, giving their wings a much greater range of movement.

Their long tongue-filled beaks are not only for probing flowers but for serious aerial warfare, in the battle for flower access. They are combatant, in competition for the best feeding grounds and frequently fight to the death to protect their favoured flowering plants.

All in all, hummingbirds are pretty incredible, their fortitude and beauty are the least of the tools, skills and abilities that these ‘little shamans’ embody.
