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,
