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!
