Gifting Gaia

Greetings from Lake Shastina!

After a very “wild ride” leaving the peacefulness of the Hokianga region of the North Island of New Zealand to visit more good friends in the 4th largest NZ city and then on to international travel, I am finally settling in to my new, peaceful nest.  Once again I am located near Lake Shastina, just north of Mt. Shasta.  I am incredibly blessed to have a most wonderful view of the mountain while sitting in my room!!!  This morning’s predawn show was spectacular!  (See photo above.) 

The December Solstice is fast approaching and I encourage everyone to take time to go out in nature and sing/tone/chant/dance and send prayers of gratitude and appreciation to Mama Earth.  A dear friend just sent me this link to a profoundly important video about our physical bodies needing direct contact with the surface and energy of the Earth in order to remain healthy:  Down To Earth.

In my personal experience, there is a three-day window at each Solstice and Equinox when the Earth is best able to receive energy from human beings.  These are very important times to stop, take time out to listen to the Earth, commune directly with Gaia, align with the changes she is making for the coming season, and to gift our highest and finest human energy to the Earth through singing, sounding, dancing, ceremony, celebration and prayers of gratitude.  The particular way we choose to honor and gift her is far less important than our clear and powerful intention to give back human energy to nourish her and to commune with her in a respectful, reverential and honoring way.

The Earth can best receive our offerings of human energy in healthy places, so find a beautiful spot in nature to gift her in whichever manner you feel most called to share energy with her.  

Gathering in harmonious groups to do this builds energy as we weave ourselves together as a community, amplifying what any one person can contribute individually.

This morning when I woke up, instead of seeing a network of sound circles, I saw a sound network sphere.  People all over the world joining together to gift energy to the Earth through toning/chanting/singing.  Embracing the Earth with a human HUMMMMMMMM of gratitude and love.  (Thank you Pamela for planting that seed!)

The time of the Solstice here on the west coast of the USA is Dec. 21, 8:28AM, Pacific Standard Time.  You can use the Time Zone Converter to convert to the time of the Solstice in your location HERE.

Note:  Several people told me they couldn’t get any sound on the Creating Toning Circles video I sent out several weeks ago, so I have amped up the sound, re-uploaded the revised version.  However, please note that the video IS SILENT during the opening drive into Volcano Nat’l Park scene.  Don’t expect sound until I am seated and start to speak.  

We are once again heading into a period of extremely potent and transformational waves of energy hitting the planet (Info HERE).

Up here in the northern hemisphere we are entering into winter, a time when we are called to stillness, deepening our roots and our connection with the Earth, building up energy for new growth to come in the spring.  I hope you will all continue to take good care of yourselves, listening to your bodies and giving them Earth time and silence and whatever else they most need to stayed aligned and balanced through these intensely transformational times.

Many blessings and much love,

New Moon - Hokianga, New Zealand

Greetings from the Hokianga, North Island, NewZealand!

I feel so blessed to be here on my good friend Pania’s land, staying in her little house truck parked right next to the house.  The land here speaks very loudly and it is calling to be allowed to be itself, to serve as a peaceful sanctuary.

It is a place where people can come to easily commune with the spirits of the land: the Elementals, the Ancestral spirits and Ancient Ones and the Celestial beings that flow through this place.  Particularly in the part of the property that is native bush, you can feel the lively conversation between all the different life forms going on.

I sang/toned the very first night I was here, trying to shift vibrational states after an intense19 hours in travel mode, dealing with airports, international security procedures, and flights.

I was amazed to feel how the land here engaged with my sounds and how I could experience the vibrations I was making in an almost visual type of way as well as kinesthetically.  It was absolutely stunning to feel what is possible to experience when interacting with healthy land in these new, higher frequency energies in which we are all now immersed. 

For those of you who connect with me, I’ll be here in the Hokianga, facilitating a toning circle for the New Moon.  We will be consciously setting our intention for what we want to create during the coming lunar cycle.  

Our main focus will be on gifting our loving human energy to Mama Earth here in this healthy spot.  Using our own vocal sounds to send energy to the Gaia organism, so that she can receive it, transform it and send it where it is most needed on the planet right now. 

Blessings to all,

Creating Toning Circles Videos

I woke up with the inspiration to create this video yesterday morning while I was still here in Volcano, Hawaii - and it "popped out" very quickly. I was shown how powerfully we can assist with the Earth's and Humanity's ascension process by toning. Both as individuals and particularly by forming groups and intentionally gifting human energy to the Gaia organism. I want to share it with everyone to encourage everyone to gift energy directly with Mama Earth and to help everyone understand why it is so important to take time out to do so.   Namaste.

The creation of this video while living here just north of Mt. Shasta was quite a different process.  Interrupted by nearby target practice on a beautiful, sunny Christmas day,  I had to return a couple of different times before finally completing the video on a very cold, totally foggy day.   I surrendered and was shown how important it is to become constantly aware of our own state of consciousness and what vibrational state we are in as this is the state that creates our reality and magnetizes our experiences to us.

Creating Toning Circles

Greetings from Volcano, Hawaii!

Coming out of a year of intense recalibration and reorganization of myself and my path of service, I have been pondering how to best to contribute to the shift in consciousness that is required for humans make in order to align with Gaia’s ascending energies at this time.

I woke up this morning seeing people creating toning circles.  Groups of people that come together to intentionally move energy through their bodies using their own vocal sounds.  I have had that vision for many years, but this morning I saw how these circles can be of immense service right now and why they are so important at this time in our planet’s evolutionary process.

The Earth is fully engaged in her ascension process now and there are huge forces of purification and detoxification that have been activated.  We humans are being presented with a wide variety of severely challenging situations by Mama Earth that provide the opportunity for each of us directly experience how we are cells within the body of the Gaia organism and how we must become more consciously aware of our roles as co-creators with Gaia of our earthly experience.  

We must choose whether we are going to be healthy cells, consciously aware of our intended role within the Gaia organism, our actions serving the health of the entire organism, or whether we are going to unconsciously play a cancerous role and need to be eliminated in order for Gaia to survive.  These are indeed challenging times in which to be alive on Planet Earth!!!

As I travel around the world working with very subtle energies, I have become very aware - often painfully aware - of the kinds of energies so many humans are carrying these days and how unaware so many of them are of their actual vibrational state.  Modern culture tends to promote a vibrational state that is actually quite toxic to living organisms.

I met a man a few weeks ago, whose energy felt very red-hot, jaggedy and intense.  He was joking, laughingly, about his recent hospital experiences, but his energy was rigid and sharp-edged and painful for me to experience.  I had been watching videos of the wildfires in the Napa area because my mother and sister are both living there.  His energy felt very, very much like the energy I had observed in the raging fires.  

Raging fires, hurricanes, and earthquakes are more intense and powerfully destructive when fueled and fed by intense human emotions of fear, anger, and rage.  These emotions are running rampant in some places on the planet and magnetize the kind of elemental forces needed to clear them and replace them with compassion and love.

So many humans have become so used to vibrating in non-peaceful, non-joyful ways, that they are simply unaware of how out of alignment they actually are on a day-to-day, moment-to-moment basis.  So these non-peaceful, non-joyful energies help to increase the destructive power of elemental storms designed to return each place to a more balanced state.

So stop and take time to listen to yourself at a vibrational level during the day.  If your energy is “off,” use your voice to move sound through your body to get it flowing smoothly and harmoniously once again.  If you are in a situation where you are unable to make sound for some reason, do “silent” toning and imagine yourself moving energy through your body with sound.

Toning, sounding, chanting, singing - all the different ways of using your voice to move energy are tremendously effective in providing a means of quickly changing your vibrational state and balancing your own energies.  Carolyn Conger, a spiritual teacher I worked with many, many years ago told us that toning/sounding was one of the fastest ways that anyone can use to shift their vibrational state to a higher frequency.

Toning in a group (where two or more are gathered!) allows a time and space to focus on shifting one’s vibrational state to a frequency of inner peacefulness or joyousness.  It also allows for the cross-pollination of energies with every other member of the group involved in the toning session.  

When I am toning out in nature - to ancient stones, trees, sacred sites, etc., I cross-pollinate energy with each one, picking up their energies and sharing the ones I have absorbed in other locations and carry from one place to another.

When people gather in a circle to tone together at a deep heart level, they cross-pollinate the energies that they each carry with the other members of the group.  Time and time again I have observed this toning process to create deep communion and a feeling of deep connection and mutual support between the participants by the time group harmony is achieved.  A toning group can hugely contribute to the health and well-being of their communities by coming together to consciously shift their own vibrational states and to intentionally send loving human energy to Gaia as a group.  

I have already posted a series of Youtube videos about Creational Sounding that can help you get started.  If you have any questions for me about how to start a toning circle, please send them to me right away.

I will be creating a youtube video to answer these questions in order to help people get their toning groups started.  When I get my internet situation stabilized, I will be setting up conference audio/video calls to work with interested groups.  

I look forward to hearing from you.  Email works best for me.  I’ll try to find and respond to messages on FB as well.  

For those of you who connect with me, I will be here on the Big Island of Hawaii for the Full Moon.

Mountain Magic

I finally made it up to Panther Meadows a couple of days ago after spending the past two months living in Mt. Shasta City (northern California).   Yesterday a new friend took me up even higher on the mountain as she wanted to revisit a spring and little meadow area.  I felt called by a particular peak we came to on the way to the meadow and to stopped to commune with the mountain energies at that spot.  

The cloud level lowered and the mists swirled in.

It felt like the message the mountain was giving me is that when life is swirling and misting and it's hard to see into the far distance that that is a good time to focus on whatever's right in front of you.  To just be present in the moment.  

After returning home, I noticed how cleansed I felt after the experience.  Like I had been thoroughly scoured out and deeply cleansed by the mountain's pure energies. 

It reminded me of a couple of songs I wrote twenty years ago after spending time in Alaskan wilderness.

Equinox, Sept. 22/23, 2017

I hope you are all planning to create or participate in some sort of ceremony to honor and bless the earth during the time of the coming Equinox, Sept. 22 - 23, 2017.  

Solstices and Equinoxes are the times during which the Earth is best able to fully receive energy from us humans, and she certainly needs all the loving, compassionate energy we can give to her right now!!!

This painting shows the vision I was given ten years ago of how there are energetic caverns beneath the earth where energy is stored.  In many places, humans have depleted those energy stores without giving back.  The pink represents our love as we sing and dance our gift of our human energy to Mama Earth.  The yellow represents the ley lines that she uses to move the energy around the planet.  The orange represents our pink energy being transformed by the earth and being then taken where SHE feels it most needs to be used or stored at any given time.

For those of you who connect with me, I will in Mt. Shasta for the Equinox and will be facilitating a Sound Sculpture meditation and co-creational event on Saturday morning, Sept. 23 up on the mountain.  This Sound Sculpture practice is very similar to one that we created together to commune with Earth and Divine energies during Lemurian times.

Please make time at the Equinox to to join together with others in your community to gift loving human energy to the Earth and the entire Web of Life.

Solstice at Uluru and Kata Tjuta

Kata Tjuta at sunset last night after my day-long visit

Greetings from Uluru/Kata Tjuta!    

I have been very busy, guided moment by moment, creating my “nest,” and getting to know this place and the various communities of beings physical and non- who reside in and through this area in preparation for the energy work at the Solstice.  

For those of you who connect with me I will out in the National Park (most likely be in the Valley of the Winds at Kata Tjuta) creating a sound sculpture ceremony for this coming Solstice.

I would love to have everyone hold Uluru and Kata Tjuta and all the natural sacred sites in the world in their hearts and send them huge waves of love, as well as all the people who work in these places and manage the land and create the policies that shape possible experiences for those who visit.  

There is an incredible amount of vibrational pollution here (sound, light, EMF, etc) caused by modern society’s need for its mechanized, technological ways of doing things.  Wouldn’t it be wonderful if these places became places that taught people and allowed them to experience simpler ways of living their lives in closer alignment with the natural world.

Here are pictures of Uluru  

Kata Tjuta viewed from the west 

and the Valley of the Winds.

I am and will be connecting with you all in my heart from there on the Solstice.

Rainbow Magic

New Moon, May 25, 2017 - Big Island of Hawaii:

The Rainbow Serpent continues to lead me on, deepening my ability to commune with the Earth.  And the humpback whales continue to teach me about streaming my rainbow colors as I walk through life.

If you've been following my journey then you will remember the Prayer Stick that I made for 2017 and how while I was filming it, energy poured through me, causing it to dance.  During my shamanic journeying class with Sandra Ingerman during Jan.- March, 2017,  I had several journeys in which the Rainbow Serpent appeared.

After I ceremonially “sang” three women up on the top of Mauna Kea during the time of the April New Moon, my Huna friend, Iliana told me that the singing had brought rainbow colors that were flowing into the mountain.  The day after the ceremony, it suddenly felt like what needed to be done on the Big Island was complete, and tuning in, was guided to go to Kauai, where very Ancient energies made themselves known to me at sacred Anahola.  It felt like I was being downloaded with energies and memories that connected me to the very deep ancient times when the planet was being formed.

After 10 days and a surprisingly and extremely peaceful and very quiet Full Moon, I realized I was complete with what needed to happen on Kauai and discovered that we were now to return to the Big Island. It felt like the ancient energies of Kauai accompanied me and I heard, “From the oldest to the youngest.”   That we were transferring energy from the oldest island to the youngest.

Rainbow colored energy has definitely been a big part of my experience here on the Big Island.  Returning after the visit to Kauai, I finally got to see Rainbow Falls when the rainbow was actually happening.  

I have spent most of my time during this second visit up at Volcano, witnessing the amazing sight of the lava dancing whenever the lava lake rises to a height where the surface can be seen from the museum.  I thought to myself wouldn’t it be wonderful to see a rainbow that touched into the crater and a couple of days later, there it was!   At first it looked like an ordinary rainbow, but then it formed a very intricate layer of colors within the outer rainbow (you can barely see them in the video, but they were absolutely awesome) and then added a whole other separate arc to form a double rainbow.  Exquisitely beautiful.  I’ve seen lots of rainbows in my life, but I’ve never seen anything like this one.  Truly magical.  Truly a blessing!

Discovering the rainbow-colored, sparkling lava stones has been a huge gift and I have made several trips out to visit them.   Their abundance started me looking for sparkles everywhere and am finding that when I look, I find them in the most amazing places.

My camera is unable to catch it, but when you walk around near the Kilauea outlook there is volcanic glass (called Pele’s hair) everywhere that sparkles in the sunshine.

Here’s a very short video so you can see some of the magic for yourself:

The Rainbow Serpent continues to call to me onward.   This time to come visit.   I leave the Big Island for Uluru (Ayers Rock in Australia) this coming Tuesday, May 30th.

Aloha to you all.

Greeting the Big Island

Laupahoehoe at dawn

The days since I arrived on the Big Island April 3rd have been a fascinating experience as I am discovering that the me that has returned is not the same me that left a year or so ago.  In one situation after another I find that I am no longer automatically caught up in the previous default setting type of responses I used to make and am finding that whoever I have now become does not want to do things in the old accustomed ways.

So it's quite an adventure observing what happens as the new me emerges and responds in new ways in one situation.  Here are some pictures I'd like to share for those of you who are not on FB of some of the special places, beaches, waterfalls, trees, etc. that I've been visiting as I said Hello to the Island.

Living Lava Love

Singing to the Earth at Kilauea Crater

There is a kind of love that is greatly needed on the planet at this time in Earth's history that I have come to call Lava Love.  I’m currently taking an online course that calls it Evolutionary Love.  I call it Lava Love because it is a very deep, rich powerful love that transforms everything it touches.  It melts, triggers, and releases repressed or suppressed emotion, it illuminates shadows, it ignites passion and life force energy, and it activates the potential for whatever or whomever it touches to be all that they are innately meant to be so that they can live their lives as their authentic, true selves.  

For many years now I have been focused on growing the ability to embody this love within myself and share it as I move around the world.  The message that I have been receiving since arriving on the Big Island is that I must learn more about receiving it as well as sharing it with others.  

So it has been a profound joy to arrive at Volcano National Park and discover that the lava lake level has risen high enough so that the living lava is actually visible from the viewing platform at the Jaggar Museum.  In all my previous visits, we were luck just to see a glow at night.  This visit I have been able to witness living lava actually dancing and was able to get a shot of it through the park’s onsite telescope so that you can see it too!

I felt called to go out to the Kilauea at dawn on April 22 to sing at the crater in the manner I have been taught by the Ancient Ones through the years.  When I arrived, no one else was there, so it was easier for me to focus and open to the spirits who walk with me and the spirits of the place and invite them to sing through me, whatever was most beneficial to have sounded at that place, at that time for greatest benefit to all life everywhere.  

It is always fascinating to see what comes through when I do this.  Some places seem to have a lot of toxic energy that needs to be cleared and so that sounds can be quite horrific as we cut through the toxicity to open a space before singing and flowing more beneficent energies into the local energy system.   I often receive “pictures,” sort of like a story of what’s been going on at the place as I sing.

At Kilauea the energy sounding and pouring through me felt very clear and focused.  The message was about the need to be deeply and powerfully connected to both Earth and Divine energies, fully receiving them, before radiating love and flowing my rainbow colors out to the world as I move through it.  I heard, “BE the love in all you do and everywhere you go."

So I share with you this video that combines many precious moments of what I have witnessed and experienced during my two weeks here at Volcano.  


PS   I was first introduced to this sacred stone that some call Pele's Torch by my Huna friend, Iliana the first time we did ceremony together at the Kilauea crater.   She happened to be touching the stone as I stood by the crater singing.  She told me later that the stone had danced while I sang.

So after singing at the edge of the crater I returned to my car, passing by Pele's Torch.  The stone called me back, wanting a song and I found myself singing a melody that came through with much more of a dancing rhythm.  I got the message that I needed to dance more and chuckled as I heard, "If stones can dance, so can you!"

Developing Heart Roots

I first met this Banyan tree over a year ago when someone asked me if I had been up to visit it yet.  Although I had spent a lot of time close by, I had not specifically sought the Banyan tree out or been consciously aware of it as a sentient being.  

This year, when I visited Laupahoehoe once again, I made a point of visiting and thanking it for its presence and the energy it holds for the surrounding area.  When I addressed it, I could physically feel a strong current of energy zip through me in response.  

During our communion the Banyan tree made known to me that as I continue to expand my work of transducing and radiating energy with increasing intensity and in amplified amounts, that I must correspondingly develop strong new roots to draw and feed more energy into my own system.  It has been fascinating to carefully examine this tree and see all the different ways that it has done this for itself.  

I observed how the branches would drop down air roots and when they finally grew long enough to touch the ground they would form new trunks to support the increasing size and weight of the growing branch.  

The Banyan tree communicated that I should develop heart roots.  As my heart continues to open and expand and the amplitude of lava love I can radiate and transmit increases, I must correspondingly open to receiving and embodying an increased amount of love as well.  

The tree showed me how I need to learn more about being nourished by the loving energy that is being offered to me by nature, by trees, by the wind, the sun, the water, the plants and animals, the stone people and cloud people as well as the humans beings I surround myself with. 

I lay under the tree one afternoon and watched its huge branches swaying in the wind.    I took a video of one of the tree branches I was watching, following it all the way back to the trunk.  I noticed how it had tried to drop down the feed roots that would eventually form auxiliary trunks and that most of them had been cut off by humans.  I could feel my own wounding and how I too had been cut off from so much that was soul-nurturing to me during my early years.

I have created this drawing, Developing Heart Roots, to remind myself of the tree’s message about the importance of creating ways to receive loving energy that nourishes my heart and my soul.

May we all increase our ability to love and nourish soul authenticity in ourselves and in others!

Answering the Call

I have been asked by several different people to describe how I was called to do the EarthSong work that I do today - - so here's the story:

I was born with a gypsy soul, and now looking back, realize that I was traveling and cross-pollinating energies most of my life - long before I had any conscious awareness of what I was doing.  I was just doing what came naturally, whatever brought me the most joy in life.  For me, that was spending in time in nature and creating things to share with people that were inspired by the magical moments I often experienced.   

My parents moved often during my childhood.  It wasn’t until the 8th grade that I ever attended the same school for two years in a row.  I was trained to be something quite different from my core essence, creative self, and after earning a teaching credential in college, I taught junior high mathematics for four years.   I quit teaching to have children and it was during that time at home with them that my creativity finally emerged and began expressing itself actively in my life more and more expansively.  I began writing music and took some art lessons.   Eventually I found an art therapist who helped me connect more strongly and directly to my sacred core, my inner source of creativity and life force energy.

While I was still married with two small children (35+ years ago) I remember standing at the kitchen window imagining.   Wondering what my life would be like if I simply walked out the door, taking nothing at all with but the clothes on my back and just kept walking.  ? ? ?     

Two years after that initial vision, my divorce was final, my husband had already remarried and he and his new wife were creating a new blended family together.  By 1989, I had completed my first song book which included Eagles Soars and was invited to attend a regional New Thought music conference in Washington State.   It was thrilling to see live bald eagles flying in the sky, and shortly thereafter I moved to Olympia.   A radically different, highly creative phase of my life rapidly emerged - complete with a large and very wonderful spiritual family of very gifted and creative people.  

Callings Continue
A powerful (and unconscious) call came from a physical condition that developed a year or so after moving to WA.  At a psychic fair a woman approached me and told me that I really needed a reading.  I refused, saying that I didn’t believe in that stuff, but she persisted, finally saying, you are in need a reading so badly that I’ll give it to you for free!  I finally agreed and allowed her to share what she was seeing.  She said I was in danger of becoming extremely ill and told me it was imperative to go on retreat and take time to rest and go within to heal myself.  

My brother lived in Hawaii and had invited me to visit him.  I had been wanting to go, but had been resistant to spending the money on myself to follow my heart.  When I mentioned that, she said which island?  When I told her Maui, she nodded.  That was my first trip off the North American continent.   (Many years later, during another reading, a different psychic intuitive did a body scan and told me that my body had once had cancer, but had cured itself.  What a huge blessing that I listened to that first psychic woman so that I never had to experience being diagnosed by a doctor or deal with Western medical procedures!!!)

After spending time with my brother on Maui, the next call I can distinctly remember was a sudden awareness  that I needed to go to Alaska.  I had always wanted to go to Alaska but it was always at some vague point in the future - five years or so off.   I got a very agitated feeling in my stomach because the guidance was to go that very summer, just a few months away.  I said, okay, if you want me to go, send me a clear and definite sign.  Within a week I had a letter from my landlady that she would be moving back to her house July 1st - so I needed to make plans to leave!  I immediately began making my travel arrangements.  

When I resumed my life in Washington after that Alaskan trip, I discovered that I could suddenly sing people.  At the ceremonies our little community created together, I just all of sudden started to sing people in what felt like a very sacred manner.  I seemed to have been downloaded with a knowing of how to do this including very definite protocols for when and how it was to be done.  I would sing sort of nonsense type syllables and as I deepened into the process, I would feel/know their story and express it by adding movements that expressed what I was inwardly perceiving.  One friend, whom I sang for her 50th birthday ceremony told me she had never felt so seen in her entire life.  

I had been working with several choral groups including one that I had gathered together to sing only choral arrangements of original music I had written myself.  In 1995 we performed a Wilderness Concert of beautiful songs I had downloaded from my trip to Alaska.  While rehearsing for that concert I saw a vision of people standing in sacred geometric formations, sounding and moving to activate the shapes they formed with their bodies and heard the term “Sound Sculpture.”  

Exploring what the term Sound Sculpture might mean was my next life path focus.  I went to the American Southwest to see if I could find anyone who knew what the term Sound Sculpture meant.  No one knew, but the term Sacred Geometry came up over and over and led to an exploration of drawing and then painting various sacred geometric designs.

After creating a television series for TCTV, I was called to live in a drier climate for my health, and after another meandering journey through the Four Corners area of the American South West and the National Parks in Utah, I finally found a new home in Ashland, Oregon.  It was not long until a series of 72 drawings of sacred geometric designs began to stream in, followed by a series of seven large paintings.    

In 2000 while visiting the CWG center where that Starseeds: Rainbow Series of mandalas was being displayed, I had a life-changing exchange with a man from New Zealand.   I sang some of my songs for him and after our long conversation, he gifted me with a piece of Pounamu, a kind of jade that is native to New Zealand that is considered to be a stone of healing, love and compassion.   It came alive and talked to me, saying, “Come to New Zealand, come to New Zealand!”  

It took me four years to answer that call, including a car accident that finally got my attention.  But finally in the late fall of 2004 I felt like I would die if I didn’t go - the calling was that strong!  I gathered my courage, got a credit card, borrowed some money, hopped on a plane, and took off for New Zealand.  As the plane prepared to land at the Auckland airport, I felt Mama Earth reach out her arms and embrace me.  I sat and sobbed to at last be HOME!

I spent four months visiting both islands, returned home, finished the CD I was working on, put everything in storage and returned to NZ.  I was unable to become a resident, but have spent about 8 years living there since that first visit in 2004.  Everywhere I went the land called to me to sing to it.  Gradually, by listening to the land and to the spirits who began to make themselves known to me, I was taught how to do the EarthSong work that I do today.

Over the years since then, I have been called mostly to volcanic areas in countries located around the Pacific Rim of Fire (Australia, Bali, Tonga, Easter Island, the Andes in South America, Lake Titicaca) as well as many connecting trips back and forth to the Hawaiian Islands.  I was also called to make one trip to Iceland in 2009 to balance on the opposite side of the planet the several years of sound work I had done in New Zealand. I’ve also made several trips to various places in the 4-corners area of the Southwest, Sedona, Hopi and Navaho lands, as well as Denver and Boulder, Colorado, and several National Parks in Utah.

That first vision I had over 35 years ago of walking into the unknown was a potent one and gradually baby step-by-baby step I have transformed my lifestyle into one in which I travel internationally to sing to the Earth and to listen to the Earth’s song.  I act as a sort of portable portal for the exchange of energies at each location.   I go wherever I am called to go to do a form of earth energy work that I have been shown how to do by the Earth and the non-physical guides who now walk with me, providing me with their guidance and protection. 

After my visit to Bali in 2014, I was told to empty out my storage unit in Dunedin, NZ.  Since then I have limited what I own to only that which I can carry by myself in two suitcases and a daypack.  Some places I stay only briefly - just a day or two.  Sometimes it’s for a week, or sometimes a month.  Sometimes longer.  I’ve been here at Mt. Shasta for a full year and it has felt like a tremendously peaceful vacation after the tumultuous, rapid-fire movement from one place to another that has taken me all over the world since I made that first trip to New Zealand in 2004.

I feel like a butterfly or a bumblebee in that I am a cross-pollinator - picking up the profound energies of one sacred place on the Earth and and radiating and sharing it with the next ones I visit.  I myself am profoundly changed by each exchange or communion, and over the years have become like a walking library of frequencies and vibrations that I can share with the places, creatures and people I meet along the way.

I also feel like a spider in that I know I am helping to weave a planetary web - weaving together the higer dimensional crystalline and magnetic Earth grids that are being newly created out of the continuously arriving waves of incoming, high frequency energies.  It has been most wonderful to meet so many of the other incredible beings as I travel and learn about the unique ways each of them has discovered for doing this Weaving the World work.  Many of the people I meet are playing a more stationary role, transducing energy for the planet from a location where they are stewarding the land.  Occasionally I cross paths with others who travel as I do and stay in touch through the internet.

I am most blessed by life and continually give thanks for the incredibly beautiful and magical experiences that come my way as I have followed the wisdom of my heart!

I hold a vision of every person on the planet clearly hearing their particular calling and experiencing the joy that comes from answering that call.
