Retrograde reflections 

Mercury retrograde won’t fight back when we stop battling it. It is inviting us to reflect on our inner realms, to examine how our inner world affects the outer, and how we allow the outer world to affect our inner realms. It’s an excellent time for contemplation, especially in the areas of communication, and the quality of our thoughts 💚

Lots of retrograde activity currently taking place in our galaxy. Check it out.

Happy Earth Day, and consider making every day Earth Day 💙

Trigger the Love, and be gentle 💜

When the shift happens??? It’s happening now!

As an ascension and transformation coach, birth and rebirth doula I often hear the phrase: “when the shift happens…”

When the shift happens? It is happening now on a grand scale. Unless you are a master alchemist, transitions are anything but easy, and they are happening. So many falsehoods are being exposed when you know where to look. Unsustainable systems clearly are in self destruct mode. Anyone who has ever given birth naturally, knows that the point of transition is the most challenging. It is when most child baring women feel defeated, wanting to throw in the towel, and are at their breaking point, as they know there is no back peddling from here. This is when the birth canal is finally at full dilation. It is just before the ring of fire, and the crowning (usually the baby’s head emerges, the fontanelles pressed together like a giant, sometimes hairy prune). This is where we are now, rebirthing our Divine selves along with our Divine Mother Earth. Things are heating up, coming to a head, and new ways of being are birthed into reality now.

Generous lubrication is a gentle way of avoiding unnecessary and violent intervention. In actual physical birth olive oil is excellent for this purpose. Pure extra virgin olive oil too is clearly a form of Love dreamed into being.
What is most needed in every birth and rebirth, is to give and receive Love-ing support. To trust in our natural abilities. Lend or request a compassionate ear, encouragement to be gentle on ourselves, and via the breath keep our focus inward on that still, small, yet powerful, Divine voice within, while simultaneously keeping our focus on obvious signs of this great change we are collectively allowing to take place. It’s in our DNA, coined by John Trudell “Descendant Now Ancestor“. It powers every atom and subatom in every cell, prompts memory in our bones, connective tissue, every muscle and every breath.

As active co-creators, we don’t have to wait around for some ill advised and compromised, exhausted president to come to any realization, or for any doctor to give us authorization to allow or push forth the life force, which is our birth right. From the Divine Source of our being, known as benevolent, specific frequencies of Love without condition, we can trigger activation of these frequencies on all levels of being, in all actions and non-actions. These frequencies are available to all who allow it, dormant until they are activated, all in accordance with Divine Will.
When we align our thoughts and body thoughts (e-motion) with all of this, in complete surrender to who we are in essence, we are capable of birthing anything into being, in every now moment.

And suddenly the pressure subsides, and the miracle of new life emerges, both vulnerable and resilient. In our arms, on our bosoms and bellies rest our dreams manifest, now in physical form. To be Love(d), and nurtured into bringing forth new life, and new dreams manifest. In this new reality it is noteworthy to mention that the sooner we surrender to who we are in essence, the less challenging it is to move, and allow ourselves to jump through these shifts.

What dreams are you willing to bring to fruition now?

“Proud” vagina monologues at Women’s March 

Way to marginalize everything around already bickering men, women, and transgender peeps in America. Get people arguing about what is appropriate.

Marginalized is another overused loaded word these days. People are amazing.

Lots to learn for and from women. A vagina, or yoni isn’t necessarily proud. Yoni is sacred, resilient, vulnerable, yet powerful. At least that’s how I see it. As a doula I have seen quite a few, and yet that does not make me the expert. Let’s leave it in the eye of the beholder.

As for women bashing each other over their political ideologies, I am not a fan.

The Women’s March was about much more than vaginas or ideologies. I watched on live stream and heard many inspired women speak eloquently on a variety of subjects.
I heard women whose black sons were murdered by cops who shot first before asking questions.
I heard how rich African Americans are in Spirit and the Love they have for humanity, even though they have for many generations been exploited. They understand the exploitation has now widened to include pretty much the entire human race.
The Lakota Sioux women were very present too. They spoke eloquently over Standing Rock, Flint, and other locations in the US where water resources are under attack to be exploited as commodities. They were supported by their men, and many other men and women. Their chanted prayers were real, they are fearless, and they were heard.
A Muslim American woman spoke about what life has been like post 9-11 for her community. She was heard.
Same for a very spirited Jewish female Rabbi.
They shared a stage and took turns speaking, singing, drumming, chanting, and listening.

In those shared moments it didn’t seem to matter to them who was playing president. They knew whoever it was, and whoever it is now, is representing their particular brand of corporate sponsors, before any member of society.

Namaste,

Women’s March – Standing firmly grounded in Love


So today was a big day of movement for women and other “marginalized” peoples within America’s borders, documented or not.

I watched on live stream what went on in Washington DC (and pretty much every town in America), celebrating diversity, and being a woman in Spirit. I didn’t feel called to go, even though I was invited. And I do appreciate all who did show up to be present within the movement.

Call me whatever name comes to mind, as a woman, I wasn’t sure what the Women’s March was about. I am glad to see it is about different things, for different people. I am glad to see that for many women, and men who came out in droves too to support them, this goes well beyond who is playing president in the White House. They have felt excluded from “liberty and justice” for a long time. Some post 9-11, and others, especially Native Americans, and African Americans, much longer.

It was beautiful to see many African Americans stand and sing together. So obviously rich in Spirit, their voices strong and deep and beautiful.

I smiled and cried along with the women, and men and children, who stood together as One: Muslims, Jews, Native Americans, black, brown, red, yellow, white, and and on fire! Standing up for freedom in reproductive health, saying no to dehumanization, tyranny, and racism, and celebrating diversity. Ready to take on any and all predatory, oppressive energies and transform them.

Today I listened to many women of different creed and color, transgender too, the majority all rich in Spirit. Their voices diverse, some melodic, some shrill, some out of breath, all worth listening to. I learned so much just listening.

I am glad I stayed home to see that democracy isn’t dead. It’s been a long time coming, and it is here. I hadn’t seen true democracy in America yet. How could so few political parties, only two “established” represent so many different voices?

The take-aways from today’s movement:

The strongest, most powerful voices came from women able to reach, look and listen deep within, before reaching out.

The rise of consciousness comes with the release and transmutation of ego. In order to truly be able to listen, it is essential to look past ego, victim hood, ideology, and judgment, and meet the observed with compassion. It’s always possible to discern what resonates, and what doesn’t, still respecting where your fellow human being comes from. If you don’t have that respect, you haven’t looked past the ego.

Today I saw women who get this:

As for the ego. Give it the job it was meant to do. Take care of survival essentials. If it isn’t life threatening, tell it to back off.

If the “other person” isn’t able to look past ego, you don’t have to engage. And you can still have compassion for those who have so much, but never experienced true Love. Poor in Spirit.

Harmony isn’t just one voice. It is many individual voices in unison.

No matter who plays the role of POTUS, (or any other person of so called authority) preside over your own power.

Stand firmly grounded in the power of Love. Whatever comes, you have the power to discern what to accept, what to discard, what to share, and what to give up to the highest power for transmutation. This power doesn’t reside in the White House. It isn’t some guy in the sky. It comes from the Cosmic Heart of Creation. It is called many different names. Mother Father Source. Or Mother Father God. Prime Creator. Allah. Hashem. Adonai. Love. When you are able to observe the still small frequency of this voice within, you are in touch with this power, also known as I AM Presence. Your sovereign super power by birth right, deeply grounded in the Heart of Mother Earth. The more deeply we are grounded, the Higher and greater our reach.

And so we rise. Together. As individuals, and as One.

From this place I keep sending Love without condition, to all who are willing to welcome and receive it.

Indeed this is only the beginning. And we are in it together. What a ride!

Namaste,

~Nell

Standing Rock: a call to continue to stand together

Snake Totem: Turning venom into medicine


Felt a wink from young Merlin, and a smile from the ancient one when I had finished writing this:

Check out this young Cherokee man, and his creative use of High Hawk Totem to help gain a sense of the Big Picture. Deep gratitude is owed to ALL water protectors coming together on this. So beautiful to see the human race come together as One Tribe, remembering what we all hold sacred. Beautiful to experience the protective presence of thousands of veterans alongside our people of the First Nations, many of whom have also served in military and police force. In a vision quest of my own (which continues in support of Standing Rock) I have seen, felt, imagined, chanted, called out and allowed for this to happen. Quite obviously I was – and am – far from alone in this.

While we have reason to celebrate, we maintain constant vigilance, and a strong Peaceful Loving Presence at Standing Rock. On to the next phase, as the next phase of the Black Snake is being planned in the formation of a few more heads where they do not belong. May we honor the Black Snake Totem: turning venom into medicine. In mastering this totem’s teachings, we can ensure the Black Snake is here to serve all, instead of just a few ♡

Vaccines work

“Hillary Clinton says Grandma knows best… Vaccines work”

~ Annette Kelly

Above public comment was placed below a live facebook video report during Andrew Wakefield’s visit to Florence, Italy. A perfect place to further the conversations the movie VaxXed has sparked.

This may well be an astroturf (paid fake grassroots) comment, but it presented a flashback moment of this video:

This represents a perfect learning moment. How scientific is official science? Do we hear Dr. Succhat provide any credible evidence, or references to scientific literature to back up her statements? Is her military attire supposed to enhance her “authority in the field” of “immunization”. There is plenty of evidence of auto immune dis-ease as a direct result of vaccination, especially within the military. Think anthrax vaccine and Gulf War Syndrome. Think how soldiers have been used as test subjects by subjecting them to all kinds of neurotoxins (DDT, Agent Orange) unnecessary medical interventions including vaccines, causing extensive and often still visible long-term harm.

So I had to respond. Not to blame the government, or the industry, but to point out the obvious: we each take part in the way we go about our lives, and in the way we see and do things. I am taking response-ability here: the ability to respond to my thoughts and emotions without shame or guilt, and with compassion for all involved. I invite each one who reads this to do the same, as we find ourselves in the midst of a major paradigm shift. Compassion means forgiving, without forgetting. It means allowing everyone to learn, and allowing appropriate consequences to flow forth from our individual and collective actions, and inactions.

Sharing my response to above “vaccines work” comment:

“Sure they do. To serve a genocidal agenda via a mandated chemically induced holocaust. Don’t take my word for it. Read any vaccine insert, look at several. Look for the presence of foreign DNA (animal or human cell lines from aborted fetal tissue). Go to article 13, and 13.1. Read and you will find that no vaccine has ever been tested for mutagenic (cancer causing) and carcinogenic (cancer causing) effects.
The grandmotherly advice of polished politicians and Dr. Ann Succhat (introduced by Elizabeth Warren as the top authority on “immunization”) in military attire, is reminiscent of a time where fascism and Nazis ran the show.

Question is, have we allowed that trend to continue behind the scenes, in much more subtle and subliminal ways? This “grandmotherly” advice you speak of, only brings comfort to those who have bought into years of clever marketing and propaganda, and who are unwittingly harming their own children. Many parents of vaccine injured children are only starting to realize this now. A growing number of medical professionals are waking up to this as well. #VaxXed is a brilliant way to keep the conversation of vaccine injuries going, and the corruption behind it. The more you look into actual science behind vaccine ideology, and the lack of science to prove efficacy and safety, the more the blinders are coming of. The industrial age, and the war mind set behind it, is coming apart by the seams.

#VaxXed is pro science, an unstoppable movement to forever change the perspective and course of medical science. To further the plight of humanity via the sharing of evidence, both scientific and testimonial, on a human level. A huge thank you is due, to Dr. Andrew Wakefield, Del Bigtree, Polly Tommey, and the ever growing team #VaxXed, which today also includes Sheila Ealey, once pro-vaccine Marcella Piper-Terry (award winning researcher, well on her way to become a CDC scientist when her 15-year-old daughter suffered a vaccine injury, and who then had to give up her planned career to spend years researching to help heal her daughter, as well as other vaccine injured ones) of vaxtruth.orgMarch Against Monsanto, and Dr. Suzanne Humphries.
Thank you for never giving up. Thank you for pouring your heart and soul into this most important work. Those who have a heart, do have the courage to listen. If anything, you have already proven as much!”

What is love, and how does it work?

Question I read on Facebook today:

If we love another person unconditionally, but then we do not love ourselves unconditionally because that person is an alcoholic and a porn addict then we are loving them more than ourselves.We are supposed to love ourselves to love somebody else. How does this work spiritually? It does make some of us feel stuck?
♢♢♢

 

 

There probably are many ways to aswer this excellent question. My answer:

 
The whole concept of love is often depicted backwards. First of all we each ARE Love without condition in essence. When we fully accept and embrace ourselves as BE(AM)ing the Love, there is no longer a need to “be loved” by anyone or anything external. The work is to release and make peace with all that is not Love, to send it back to where it came from, or transmute it.

 

 
Once fully present as a radiant Loving being, those who are in your presence will be triggered to release that which is blocking the Love. Some have not yet learned how to effectively and fully release the unloving parts. So they may be stuck in old programming that keeps them enslaved to external punishment and reward systems. Some will already know how to release and transmute the unloving parts. It is incredibly easy to enjoy connecting in Love with such individuals. With many distractions at our disposal, it’s also incredibly easy to be distracted from that connection in Love. It takes discipline (daily practice), to be fully present as a Love-ing being.
The more we are fully present and grounded in Love, the more we are able to recognize when someone is willing to do the work, or when the addiction behavior is controlling a person’s will.Then you can discern that it is more appropriate to connect in Love with such a person from a distance, until this person is ready to accept help in doing the work… or not.

Erroneous behavior will send you back to your country of origin

fascist meme

Above image is a Dutch patriotic looking meme I found on facebook, and is translated in the title of this blog.

It got me going. Wheels were already set in motion by the effects of a full Red Moon and partial lunar eclipse. I had just changed my profile picture with a cartoon version of my face. My ten year old son quipped: “You look like a villain. You are now a cartoon psychopath“. Perfectly fits the mood, in response to psychopaths who appear to be running the corporate US, and too many other countries. A way for me to cope is to address my own shadow, psychopathic programming and all shenanigans. This was exactly what was on my mind when I saw the cartoonized photo of me and I knew I “had to” show my family, friends, my tribe, this face.

So I pondered on that meme and came up with this:

Wonder if this indeed is a solution, send people – after erroneous behavior – to their countries of origin, especially when the land is unrecognizable. Home and culture destroyed. If this were to happen here, there would be a mass exodus in this country. Then perhaps the “Indians” would remain. Erroneous behavior by Columbus, who thought he was in India, gave these generous, hospitable people the name, and then exploited them by looting and murdering them. This was expected of him. John Trudell called this the virus. It rages on. It appeared on Earth in Europe, as a means to get its population “civilized”. This was imposed on us, and in no way gently. That this happened is hardly described in the history of mankind. History. His story. The official version is always described by the “winners” of the wars. There are really only losers in this kind of violence. Namely what is lost in any war is our sense of humanity, our human(e) beingness. We forget who we are and where we come from. Fear and trauma occupies the mind and blocks the re-minder. The memory of who we are inside. The connection to all that is. The love and our capacity to love and live in love. Unconditional love is disarming and liberating. According to me and many fellow dreamers with me, the only way for the human race to have a chance at a real society is to surrender to this Love, and embrace it. Society: the word originates from two words: being together. Being is life affirming. Survival is not life. Not really. We need people who dare to be themselves. People who are willing to replace the robot programming of the military industrial complex with consciousness and inspiration.

The words and feelings still echo in my being when I encounter these words: “Maybe all dragons in life are actually princesses who are only waiting for the moment in which we finally, beautifully and courageously, spring into action. Maybe that which we are afraid of in its most naked essence is something helpless, seeking our love.”
RAINER MARIA RILKE’

Sending Love to all beings everywhere, for as long as it is welcome and received. Sending Love and thanks to all beings everywhere, who are BE(AM)ing the Love here with me, willing to address their shadow. Sending Love and thanks to all beings who struggle to remember who they are, only when it is welcome and received. The ones who need it the most, the ones who are waiting.
