And since when did Santa and the birth of Jesus have anything…Continue
Suwa Lake Shrines 08.11.14 sharing the day with friends making offerings of prayer for Mother Earth & Fukushima. I share this so you will know more about hemp. The large rope hanging above the lady in prayer used to be made of hemp until hemp was outlawed after WW II as part of the treaty of unconditional surrender with the US. Hemp may be one of the solutions for Fukushima….. So why has it been outlawed all over the world?
Just saying the obvious......

Meiji Jingu is one of my favorite places to visit when I go to Tokyo, Japan. I have always had a great affection for this place. Especially the tradition of going to offer prayers on New Years, where 100's of thousands of people attend ceremonies and shrines and offer prayers for the coming year. I have attended New Year pilgrimage's with upwards of 60,000 people…Continue

"Fully embodying the belief that we create our reality frees our consciousness range from self-imposed limitations. This is the first step of the path of Self-Mastery – the mastery of the Mind. We become aware that we are responsible not only for our actions, but also for every thought we have. We then recognize that we must become disciplined in tracking these thoughts to their conceptual origins, and facing head on our fears and misconceptions.…Continue

My mantra for the journey was a combination of words I used on my first journey in…Continue

As part of the healing process, I recently spent part of the holidays going through a series intensive advanced DNA healing and trance work to connect to my "inner-child" and to do some more tune-up healing work. The holiday time is a great time to do this, as it helps to stay focused on my path and to work more on releasing the emotional abuse from childhood.
A need for this was triggered on December 14th - the day of the Newtown shootings. Having started PALS AROUND THE WORLD, a…Continue
