One Adjustment AwayMay 19th, 2012
We are each just one adjustment
away from realizing the dream
May and June are exceptionally powerful months. Individually and collectively we can utilize this amazing influx of light being gifted to us with each of the significant planetary events we will be experiencing. As a human race we are receiving assistance from the Masters and celestial beings giving each of us the ability to increase the light we are adding to the world in unprecedented ways and adjusting our reality to escape the illusion that has bound us in misery so that we can experience the dream and walk a path of beauty. In order to do this we have to clear our body temples to hold more light and that means we absolutely have to clear the old energies of anger, guilt, regret, betrayal, everything from the past that we continue to hold on to. Forgiveness and unconditional love is what will move us forward now. Anything else will weigh you down and keep you in the illusion.
When you focus on the NOW, your precious light is woven into the accelerating momentum of light unfolding throughout the remaining months of 2012. At this time your efforts are being amplified a thousand times and a thousand fold by your I AM Presence and your commitment to move forward. Moving forward does require completely letting go of your past life so you can live the life you were always intended to live. It requires making that one final adjustment. No matter what you have heard regarding the predictions of 2012, KNOW that the Light of the Divine is ALWAYS Victorious and YOU are that Light.
You have a vital role to play in the unfolding Divine Plan. You always have but just now you are completely awakening to that truth. This is the restless stirring inside that you feel. The absolute desire and need to fulfill your destiny. To be all that you were born to be. To be anything less serves absolutely no purpose and things are accelerating. Everyday you need to call forth your I AM Presence to unite your heart and mind with the Heart and Mind of the Divine Father/Mother, the God and Goddess. The divine spirit answers to whatever name you choose to call. What is important is that you call.
On May 5, 2012, we experienced the Wesak Full Moon, which was considered a Super Moon because it was the closest the moon will be to the Earth this year. This factor amplified the Gifts of Wesak.
May 5th also carried the numerological frequency of 5-5-5 since 2012 is a 5-year. There were many global meditations and gatherings that took place on that day to take advantage of this rare frequency. Numerically 5 is the number for rejuvenation on all planes and the birthing of new life. It is the number that carries the momentum of freedom, change, and new opportunities. The Light from these events is still pulsating in, through, and around every particle of Life on Earth and will continue to bless us throughout the month of May. It is also bringing to the surface things that must be reviewed, embraced and cleared through forgiveness and love. Many things are surfacing that have the potential to throw us off balance.
On May 20th, we will experience a very powerful New Moon/ Solar Eclipse, and on June 4th we will experience a powerful Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse. These two celestial events will lift us further into the Light in preparation for the greatest influx of Divine Love that we have ever experienced. On the day of these two events eat lightly and drink a lot of water. Avoid alcohol for the entire day as the energies will be very strong and will amplify whatever you are holding in your consciousness at this time. The gifts of the eclipses will culminate with the Venus Transit on June 6th. For those in New Zealand who wish to prepare for this once in a lifetime event I will be providing a workshop to support one in raising their own personal light frequency with the obsidian stone being and andara crystal.
This will be a critical step of preparation before the influx of Light that will bathe the Earth during the December 21st Solstice. Prior to this, the Solstice energy on June 20th through June 24th is providing yet another opportunity for circles of light to be created. It is at this time I will be holding the energy and weaving light into the cosmic spider web in Uluru (click here for more information) with a wonderful group of souls. It is difficult for us to truly grasp the magnitude of what this will mean for the Earth and all living beings as millions will gather around the world in the high energy points on the grid. Individually we will become a vehicle of light that will anchor the energy to awaken those still sleeping and open the hearts of those that have been closed.
Pay close attention to the opportunities that are presented to you. Ask your I AM Presence for guidance, ask this wondrous aspect of your own Divinity to pave the way, so that you will be able to fulfill your heart’s calling. Simply wake each morning and say the following… “Show Me… Guide Me… I AM ready to move forward”. These words will draw the Masters to you and guidance will be given if you enter the silence and stillness to receive the messages. Know that whenever you volunteer to serve as an Instrument of God and the Goddess on behalf of Humanity and ALL Life evolving on Earth, the floodgates of Heaven open to support you and to help pave the way for your participation. It is critical that Light workers from around the world join together to anchor the light that will be infused into the cosmic spider web during the times of planetary alignments. Trust your inner guidance. Your Light is needed NOW!
Continue to clear the remnants of your old story. That story will not serve you in these higher energies. The potential to create a new story for you personally and to birth the earth into the new dream has never been stronger than it is now. YOU WILL BE PUSHED TO MOVE FORWARD.
Every person will be in his or her right and perfect place. No facet of this Divine Plan is any more important than another. What IS important is that we each respond. The entire Universe is supporting us, as our responsibility is enormous. If we join our hearts together, no matter what our past story is, no matter what our faith or belief, no matter what language we speak or what we do for a living these planetary events create opportunities to seed the earth with a new dream, to heal our past and create our future.
To utilize the power of the solar eclipse that will occur on May 20th I am providing a powerful ritual to support you through the sometimes-chaotic energy that an eclipse can bring.
With Focused Intention put the Power of Words to Paper – 75% of the words we write on paper do manifest especially when the energies are heightened at the time of an eclipse. Writing is a powerful way to focus our attention. Writing your intentions and desires on paper sends a strong message to both your conscious and unconscious minds that you are serious and committed to manifesting change. Even if you feel you have written down your intentions many times before and you have not realized your dreams. It is not because the power is dormant within you; it is because you have needed to clear the path. Hands that are tightly clinched holding on to the past cannot allow the new things you intend in. You must be absolutely unattached to your past and unattached to the outcome of what you are intending. The ritual is stating clearly what you intend and allowing the universe to rearrange itself to bring to you what you are intending. Often the intentions you receive may look nothing like what the ego mind has created. That is why when we are asked to let something go, or something does not quite come together as we thought it should, there is ALWAYS a higher purpose behind everything that occurs in our life. We just have to TRUST and move through the shadow. Not easy at times but if we ask, we will have all the assistance we need.
If you knew you would not fail, what would you do? Breathe this knowing deep inside and begin to dream.
To create an even stronger connection to manifest your dreams and the Universe, set up an altar that includes:
· Fresh flowers – white, red, orange
· A red candle
· An orange candle
· Bowl of water
· Plate to put candles on
· Red stone being (carnelian, garnet, ruby, or red jasper)
· Incense and any other objects/photos or pictures that reflect your dreams.
For extra power write with a red, burgundy or orange pen on white paper. Sit down with pen and paper in hand and write out in detail all that you want to invite into your life. Review your list, on a separate piece of paper write down a wish for you personally, a wish for your loved ones and a wish for your community and mother earth that deeply resonates with you. Fold the paper towards you, which symbolizes receiving the gift from the universe. Place your lists under the plate that holds the candle.
Evoke the Power of the New Moon by lighting the incense to honor the air spirits, light the candles to honor the fire spirits, hold the bowl of water over your heart and invoke the spirit of the dolphins and whales, honoring the holy water by sending it love. Hold the red gemstone in your hand, take in a deep cleansing breath and on the out breath, state with conviction: “On this New Moon, I ask the universe to bring into my life the items I seek that support my journey at this time. Repeat the wishes out loud three times. Do NOT Blow out the Candles. Let the candles burn for as long as you are focused on your wishes. Let them burn out on their own. Save your list and when you write next month’s New Moon list, be sure to compare. You may find that your priorities have shifted as a result of greater clarity coming, or that some of your list has manifested. I will share more about the lunar eclipse on June 4th in another email.
I have now returned to beautiful New Zealand and was greeted as I flew in with a magnificent and vibrant rainbow that seemed to reach from the landscape to the plane. Confirmation for me that we continue to weave the web and unify the rainbow tribe.
Sending you love and rainbows from the land of the long white cloud, Aotearoa, Robbyne

A Place To Remember LoveMay 9th, 2012
The Spirit of Bali takes you to a place of remembrance, a place of oneness within yourself, that place we have forgotten that connects us to the divine and to love. As we struggle for a sense of inner peace during these times of dramatic change, the outside world of apparent chaos can easily throw us from our purpose and into the illusion. It is easy to lose our way and to doubt whom we are. I find that Bali is a place, if you come with an open heart, where one can journey deep into the core of their being to that place of knowing. It is however, not a journey without struggle, where one must breakdown the old to break through to the new. Like most places on the earth grid that hold the high spiritual energies there is always a polarity and you will find exactly what you intend and what you need to move forward when you come to Bali. If you have the courage to go within you will find the magick that you seek.
Prior to the gathering for the Wesak celebration, I traveled to the home of the High Priest Ida Pedanda Gede Made Gunung to receive a purification blessing for the andara crystal and myself. As I felt the power of this blessing I remembered my first journey to Bali in 1998. Within the first two hours of being in Bali and man would approach me and say the following….”For you to understand the magick you carry within and the power you hold you must first understand the Black magick”. This message would come six months later in the dream of the obsidian stone being, which would set my world upside down. For the dream was about facing the shadow and my fear. Now 14 years since that encounter and even though I have returned several times to, Bali, she has called me back and it is here I truly understand the meani ng of those words.
Much has changed since my first visit, the airport is much more chaotic as it is being rebuilt to increase the numbers of tourist coming to Bali.
Many foreign investors have built their expensive resorts without honoring the land, and there is a distortion around abundance and poverty here that was not as visible before. Outward appearance, the spirit of Bali is hidden when one moves through the city of Denpasar. This is however what one sees with the thinking mind and the ego. If one takes the time to embrace the spirit of Bali, the true spirituality has never been lost. Much like the ancient worship of the Goddess is cloaked and just now being restored, the spirit of Bali is awakening and that is why I was called to be here for the Wesak celebration. The people of Bali keep the magick alive and it is forever present in the landscape of the Goddess.
By divine destiny and again through the support of Sharon and her beautiful family I had the great privilege of meeting Amir, the guardian of a sanctuary in Ubud that holds the magick and the true spirit of Bali. A very grateful and heart flet thank you to Amir for allowing us to create the sacred ceremony on his land for all who came to share their wisdom and their light. When I first arrived the moon was just rising in her full power and just below was a cloud formation of a dragon. I connected to the guardian of the land and instantly knew this beautiful sanctuary was placed on a dragon line and this was to be fully activated this night. The call went forth and 50 gathered to celebrate the Wesak Full Moon as Guy and I continued to weave the web of light to heal the sacred circle and to awaken those still sleeping.
It is easy to lose our way with the fear and greed that exists within the world but that is when we are asked to remember whom we are. Just like my recent journey to Uki and Melaney, a wondrous gathering of all ages and people from all over the world that had felt the spirit of Bali calling them home gathered. As we began the ceremony stillness seemed to envelop the group and even the children went into a blissful state of being. This is what Bali teaches us if we open our heart to hear her message. Just being.
As we experienced the first two water blessings which is the celebration of Wesak, the Full Moon shown above us and the heavens opened to bring forth the celestial rains cleansing and purifying each of us of our fears, our doubts and the illusions that have held us prisoners in the thinking mind of the human experience. As many began to run for cover, Amir did not move from his focused place of being. His commitment as the guardian of this land and the wisdom keeper was clear. As the rains came down a brilliant light emanated from this soul reminding me that as long as there is one holding the light, being the faith keeper, our world would move through the galactic alignment and we would dream the new dream into our earth.
One light that continues to burn no matter what, can assure the light will never go completely dark. The alliance between the world of human and that of the unseen was being reestablished this night and the cosmic spider web was flooded with light. 50 souls made a commitment to live their truth and be in the heart. Yes we will all be tested but the spirit of Bali was alive, the magick was being restored.
As I always prepare for ceremony in gathering the tools in a sacred way I knew that I needed to gather the flowing water of a waterfall as this brings forth power to move forward and courage to move through the illusion of fear.
I had intended to do so at the source of a waterfall by water rafting through the Agung River. It had rained the night before and we had been told the river would be rough. Guy and I were joined by Pauline and her husband Dan. Pauline had a huge fear of the river and the vision she would be thrown from the boat into the river. We cancelled once but then were told the river would be fine and decided to go. I needed the water for the ceremony and this would be my only chance. A series of strange events occurred on this river rafting trip and because of a delay, our boat would be the last to go. Five minutes into the trip we came across a boat that had flipped and the guide and boat had been washed down the river leaving two young girls clinging to the surface of a rock, and yes the river was flowing with more power than usual. We were able to maneuver our boat so that Guy was able to pull the two girls to safety and get them into our boat. As we began to move forward the heavy flow of the river now slammed our boat into the rock. All I remember was looking back as I knew I was going in the river at Pauline, and thinking if I survive this she is going to kill me. It was in slow motion and yet I know it was only seconds as I felt myself thrown into the river and the boat coming down on top of me. I didn’t have any fear but everything went black as my life jacket had not been secured properly and was up and over my face. Everyone was in the water and the next thing I remember is my husband pulling me out as I was going under. The spirit of Bali was taking me deeper into my knowing as the sacred waters are the blood of the earth mother and the intelligence stored in the water can be accessed when one is free of fear.
For me the spirit of Bali was telling me to find the time to just be and that we must all find that place of inner peace within us. It was also a message that what we fear we will pull to us so if we go within and call the thing we fear we can bless it, love it and receive the power that we once gave it, to be a motivating force in moving forward. Pauline will probably never get on a river raft again, she didn’t kill me as I am still alive to share the story and the water from the waterfall was used in the sacred blessing of Wesak. We each were grateful we were unharmed and looked for a deeper meaning in the experience.
Each of you reading these words are the faith keepers and no matter what you see through the eyes of the human, look deeper from the heart and the eyes of love. Take the time to find the balance in your life, take the time to appreciate the beauty and reflect on all that you have. There will be times when the river of this journey will flow with great intensity and you will feel you have been thrown from your boat, the old and familiar. If we are there to support one another we will move through these times of change. Be the light, be the expression of love and be all that you were born to be.
I will be returning to beautiful Bali later this year at the time of the 12:12:12 for those who are interested in joining me to remember and embrace the emerald green landscape of the Goddess and to anchor the wave of light that will be sent to the cosmic spider web. I will be sending out more details later.
Love and rainbows, Robbyne

Mars Delivers a Hard HitFebruary 25th, 2012
In January, I shared with you that Mars would be going Retrograde providing a grand opportunity for each of us to do some emotional and mental house cleaning. This is in preparation to move forward with a sense of potential and courage in mid April when Mars goes direct.
Mars is the most volatile of the planets and triggers confrontation, unresolved anger, our deepest insecurities and fears. We have soul contracts with others to support us through this time of inner reflection and cleaning up the past so we can move forward. We will find that anything can trigger the emotional wounds we have not healed. Mars Retrograde will act as a wake-up call, bringing problems to the forefront and allowing you to clearly see what needs to be done. It is time to clear the air and move on. The influence of Mars is playing out globally with an increase in violence.
We are now in the middle of this retrograde and Mars is hitting hard. We need to push through the fog of uncertainty, we need to stop making excuses and we need to stop blaming others for our inability to achieve what our soul has come her to achieve. If we are not living our purpose we will feel lost and empty.
This is also a time for reflection and nurturing ourselves. A time for stillness. We are to look inward, gather information and take the time to love ourselves. This planet operates from only two vibrations, love or fear. The minute we see ourselves as less than someone else, the moment we search for the divine outside of ourselves we have stepped into the danger zone of judgment, comparison, lack and feeling powerless. This Mars retrograde is designed to give us the opportunity to make that connection to our divine self again.
No one will do this for you. I guarantee another soul will support your process and bring your fear and insecurity to the surface to address. Forgiveness is key and this most certainly includes forgiving ourselves. My own husband, who I adore, pushed all my buttons one night to the point where I was so angry with him that I stormed out of the room and slept on the couch. Knowing the influence of Mars I chose to deal with my anger and look inward. I did not like how he had spoken to me, as though I was a child and it certainly brought to the surface old childhood wounds. It was the critical voice. By morning I had worked through my issues, and decided I would not give him back to his mother, who is very dear to me. He had certainly pushed my issues and a huge wave of anger came to the surface. I needed to look at my stuff. When I was in a calmer place I did tell my husband I did not appreciate his tone. What helped me through my inner search to find the core of MY issue were the words I have shared before from the Dalai Lama. “The person who hurts us, disappoints us, betrays us, angers us is the greatest teacher giving us the opportunity to practice Mastery by providing an opportunity to practice, forgiveness, compassion and kindness”.
It doesn’t mean you won’t have an emotional reaction because we are an emotional species. It means we need to look inward at our issue and understand the soul standing before you or the situation is merely providing the opportunity for you to write a new story and clear out the old emotions that are holding you back from being all you were born to be. To move through these times of change we MUST CHANGE. Leave the past behind and focus on moving forward. If you keep revisiting the past you will be pulled into a continuous spinning pool of emotional turmoil. We simply don’t have time for this. With Mars retrograde we can quickly find the origin and core of our anger, hurt, fear, insecurity, low self-esteem and issues of self-love.
I wanted to share a powerful meditation with you to support you through the Mars retrograde. Find a quiet place where you will not be disturbed. Do this at night or in a dark room. Light a single candle and turn all the lights off. Close your eyes down and see yourself in complete darkness. This is being in the midst of your fear or anger. Focus on your breath until you become comfortable with the darkness. Open your eyes and see the flame from the single candle. This represents your divine light illuminated to guide your journey when you choose to move through the emotion. Close your eyes again and see that there is a brilliant light in the distance, move toward the light. As you get closer you will see that there is the entrance to a cave. Step into the cave and you will find there is a brilliant ray of light at the other end. As you step through the cave you will find the light is the sun shining on the other side. Step through and there you will find your future self ready to give you guidance and to share. You will find you have left the anger and insecurity behind and in this place can receive guidance for your journey.
Practice this meditation whenever you feel the influence of Mars and be grateful for EVERYONE and EVERYTHING in your life. You did enroll in this earth experience. We all did. I intend to graduate and I intend to see you standing there next to me.
Wishing you a joyful and enchanting week as you reconnect to the magick of our journey.

New Moon on January 23rd begins the “Year of the Water Dragon”January 18th, 2012
Alert: Mars goes Retrograde the day after.
The year of the Yang Water Dragon, brings many possibilities for good fortune. We as human beings share this beautiful water planet with many other life forms. Our bodies are water vessels and we are comprised of 70% water. Water has been defined as a conduit so we can make this a powerful year of change and new vision if we choose individually and come together collectively. 2012 is the Year of unity and oneness as Grandmother Spider awakens us from the sleeping slumber we have been under to heal the Web. This begins by first healing ourselves and then weaving a new dream. Water symbolizes the blood of our earth mother so ceremony done around water and with water will be very powerful to heal the song and spirit lines that are woven into the cosmic web.
In the Chinese element theory, water produces wood, which signifies growth and is the natural element of the dragon. This is a five year which is all about expansion, growth and movement forward. A Water Dragon year occurs every 60 years, the last being in 1952. The water dragon year begins with the New Moon January 23, 2012. The dragon is the 5th sign of the Chinese zodiac and it is regarded as an auspicious symbol which stands for power, good luck, success, and happiness.
On this powerful new moon, I always do a special ceremony incorporating the color red on my altar as red is the color of power, good luck and good fortune. For me it also symbolizes manifesting into our physical experience that which begins with focused intention and dreams. On the altar place a red candle, red roses and I like to add three cinnamon sticks tied with a red ribbon. Add a bowl of water and place red rose petals in the water. Use cinnamon incense to honor the air spirits who will carry your dreams to the unseen world where all is created. I share with you ideas that work for me, but always follow what feels right in your heart. There are wonderful Feng Shui envelopes of red and gold where I will write my intentions on a clean and special piece of paper, parchment or linen paper is best but plain white will certainly work. You can also use a red envelope. If you can’t find any of the above, take a regular envelope and tie a red ribbon around it. I always write my intention with the words… I AM SO GRATEFUL FOR….. Part of preparing for the new Moon is making sure you are clear about your intentions. At the end write the words So Be It and So It Is. Fold the paper towards you symbolizing receiving all that you are setting the intentions for. Place in the envelope, seal it and place under the red candle. (Fire safety always place a plate on top of the envelope and then the candle). New Moons are a blank page on which to speak your dreams out loud. Light the incense to honor the air spirits, the candle to honor the fire spirits, the bowl of water and rose petals, honors the water and earth spirits. Let the candle burn completely. At the end of your ceremony offer the water back to the earth and dispose of the candle. Keep the envelope on your altar or in a safe place for the entire year. At the turning of the cosmic wheel at the time of the galactic alignment on 12:21:12, the Winter Solstice you will burn the envelope in a Gratitude ceremony. Every New Moon you have an opportunity to refocus and recharge your intentions. The new moon phase is an optimal time for planning and seeding your intentions. Seedlings need a period of gestation before they break through the soil and reach for the sunlight. This is also true for our ideas and our desires. The dark side of the moon, with its mysterious unseen forces, offers a nurturing environment where our intentions can establish roots before their miraculous manifestations begin to sprout and reach out to the stars. If you would like to learn more about the moon cycles and following the old ways of magick click here.
On the day of the new moon, wear Red for good luck and to embrace the dragon year. If red is not your color, incorporate red as an accessory or wear red under garments.
The very next day after the New Moon we will feel the influence of Mars going Retrograde. Mars influence is relevant to cycles, the natural rhythms of life and death. On the one hand we have the driving force of new beginnings from this new moon and immediately following we enter a period of thoughtful retreat and a symbolic death to the things which no longer serve. Mars in retrograde will require us to be honest with ourselves and to confront our deepest, darkest secrets. Mars will resurrect certain themes in our lives, and working with this planet will allow us to understand who we are in the context of our shadow natures. As we work with Mars influence, we will burn through our remaining illusions and self doubts.
Before Mars goes retrograde, start the projects you have been delaying but understand clearly that once Mars does go retrograde on the 24th, we will feel the brakes being stepped on and the inner reflection will begin. This will create an excellent time for one to journey inward. For those who may be interested in moving through the illusions and uncertainties I will be conducting a series of shamanic journeys in the sanctuary of Mount Shasta, sharing tools of transformation and working with the violet flame of Saint Germaine. It is here in the magnificent sanctuary of the mountain that we will perform ceremony to activate again the song and spirit lines on the Crow Full Moon and the Spring Equinox prior to Mars going to direct.
Mars in retrograde will provide opportunities for you to gain your confidence, inspiration and insight but you will be required to face your inner demons. While Mars is retrograde, you will be reviewing the way you handle anger, self-motivation and sexual relationships. Feelings of resentment and unresolved anger will come forward so it is imperative you find the proper channel to release this and do not go into denial or blame. Remember it is a time to look inward.
Things don’t go as fast as we want them to during Mars retrograde. Delays and detours may turn out to be valuable, as you discover something of worth along the way. This is an excellent time to review recent developments in your life with the aim of reviewing your goals and methods— significant adjustments made now can improve your chances in the future. This is the time to germinate seeds that you plant with the New Moon on January 23rd. Mars represents strength— and this is time to gather your strength by nurturing the physical body. Great change will occur when Mars goes direct mid April for those who work fully with the gifts these planetary influences have on our life.

Day Two – The Three Rivers of Passau and a very unexpected healingJanuary 14th, 2012
So powerful was my experience at the Black Madonna, that we decided to cancel our original plans and stay an extra day. I had one of the pieces of Pounamu, the stone of peace and unity that had been gifted to me in New Zealand by the Waitaha elder and I knew it needed to be deposited in the river. Rivers are the source of life and the bloodline of the earth mother. They carry the prayers and dreams of human beings and can change the course of events of the future or heal the mistakes of the past.
When Lucia, joined us, she shared with me the source of the three rivers merging together in Passau and I knew instantly this was where the greenstone needed to be deposited. I had carried the greenstone to the Black Madonna and asked that she bless the stone with forgiveness and healing for all that had taken place on these lands in the past. Healing of the land for all the lives that had been lost, not just in war but those who had followed the Earth Religion and walked upon the earth in truth but were accused and murdered in the name of the church. Three is a sacred and mysterious number and found in every religion. For the Church of Rome it is symbolized as the Father, Son and Holy Ghost. For those that follow the earth religion and the acknowledgement of the black mother goddess it symbolizes the Maiden, (childlike innocence), the mother, (the nurturer and care giver) and the crone, (the wise woman, the grandmother wisdom keeper). It also symbolizes Heaven, Earth and Human.
The three rivers that come together are the Danube, which is the second largest river in Europe and has its source in the Black Forest of Germany flowing from the West. It touches nine different countries Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Montenegro, Romania, Bulgaria, Moldavia and Ukraine making its final destination into the Black Sea, the Inn River flows from the South whose source begins in Lake Lunghin passes through Switzerland and creates the border between Germany and Austria. The third river is the Ilz, a river of the Bavarian Forest, which flows from the North. At the place where the three rivers merged together, we would deposit the greenstone.
As we released the stone into the river it created a beautiful ripple across the water. Knowing that this prayer would flow through so many countries it would send our prayer across most of Europe.
My guidance would lead me to discover something else that touched my heart deeply. There are many stories that claim that Adolf Hitler moved to Passau with his family at the age of three. There are reports that a young boy fell into the river and would have drowned had a Catholic priest not pulled the struggling boy from the river. The boy was said to have been Adolf Hitler. I wondered for a moment if the history of humankind could have been altered that day. I knew that somehow I was doing a small part to altar the history that was stored in the land and in the water by placing the blessed greenstone that held the new dream into the waters. I had answered the call of the Black Madonna and now much was being set in motion. It was clear I would return to these waters and to the dark lady of Altotting one day with those who would also be called by the dark lady.
We were gifted with a gorgeous and sunny day and made one final journey into the cathedral. Even though I do not claim to have an allegiance to any particular religion as I choose to be of universal faith. I honor the first religion, known as the earth religion which belongs to everyone. I made a point to pray within the cathedral for the end of separation that humanity still experiences with our religious differences and to pray for one world, one faith coming together once again in unity and harmony. I will never stop believing this is the new dream, nor will I miss a single day to be part of the change. What captured my attention when I entered the cathedral and made my heart smile was not the display of wealth that the church had spent in creating this stone structure, but the magnificent tree that stood at the altar. The tradition of bringing a Christmas tree into the home began thousands of years before the birth of Jesus and was brought into the home at the time of the Winter Solstice to bring the elemental kingdom into the world of human when the alliance between the two worlds was strong.
The magnificence of this tree being, symbolized the very dream we had just placed in the waters of Europe. The lights represented the souls of all living beings that share our beloved earth. The great Standing Tall One, quietly reminding us to find our connection to home as it stood with its branches pointed upward in a symbol of prayer. My heart was filled with joy and I could feel the faery folk smiling back at me. I smiled too knowing they were fully present within this stone structure man had built to communicate with God. All we ever really needed to do was connect to nature. This was the guidance of the Dark Mother Goddess and this would be the focus of all the journeys and teachings I would share. To reestablish the alliance between the world of human and that of nature. To help one remember the old ways of magick that come when we embrace nature. To weave the web of light and find those of the rainbow nation. This was going to be a grand year. Magick was everywhere and miracles easily found for the one who looks with the eyes of a Shaman. Avalon was indeed calling me home.

We Are Stardust We Are GoldenJanuary 8th, 2012
As I awoke this morning having just flown back to the states from Germany, I was reflecting on my first journey of 2012 when the words… “We are stardust…we are golden… and we have to get ourselves back to the garden” came on the radio. How appropriate I thought, my music angel was working overtime with confirmation of my recent experience in Germany. My first journey of 2012 – The Year Of Grandmother Spider weaving the web and walking the Path of Beauty began with a personal pilgrimage to the Black Madonna of Alttoting, Germany. I made this pilgrimage as thousands have done in the past but not because of any connection to the religious order of the Church of Rome nor was I seeking a personal miracle. I made this pilgrimage because the dark lady had called me to her and I was seeking the way that would allow me to be her messenger.
The dark lady’s call had come so clearly to journey to this place of mystery, and would be repeated again and again when I would sit in stillness in the sanctuary of the Grandmother Wisdom tree on the sacred lake in Mount Shasta. On both the morning of the Winter Solstice and again on Christmas Day, it was here I would be called to sit and listen. As I walked the sacred labyrinth in the secret garden in Mount Shasta at the time of the Winter Solstice I would receive the same guidance. “Return home dear one” were her words.
The Black Madonna is a mysterious presence, often associated with the Catholic Church, but her presence has been here thousands of years before the Church of Rome was formed and long before the birth of Jesus. She is known as the creative mother goddess or the Black Lady because she represents the source of creation, the earth mother. She has made a promise to return whenever mankind is suffering and feels lost and hopeless. Her dark skin is representative of the Egyptian lands and the black fertile soil of the Nile River from which she is associated with Isis, the Mother Goddess. She has come many times and can be found in every religion and culture when we take the time to explore the teachings found all over the world. Although people identify her by a different name she is the same loving presence. She has come as Isis, as Kuan Yin, as White Buffalo Woman to the Lakota nation of America, as the Lady of Kazon to the people of Russia and the Baltic Seas, as Grandmother Spider Woman to the first nation people of North America and as Pacha Mama to the people of the Andes mountains. She is the Lady of Avalon for those who remember.
Even though we may worship in different ways and pray to a different presence, we are connected to this loving mother goddess, through a web of illuminescent light that extends from our heart centers and weaves us together much the same as a spider web. If we find her in the stillness of our heart she will lead us back to the golden time and the remembrance we are golden starlight, here to create a beautiful vibration of love and light, for earth is the garden. This is what we search for because we remember. We remember the lands of Mu, Lemuria, we remember Telos, we remember Avalon. It is encoded deep in our hearts and we search to return to the garden that once was the earth experience. It is she that is connected to EB the obsidian stone being, the stone of the shaman and seer that I continue to carry, weaving the web. She is connected to the andara crystal, the stone of unconditional love to the places that hold the blueprint.
The Black Madonna of Altotting, Germany, is believed to have granted many miracles, the legend originating in the 15th century when a young child who had drowned nearby was brought before the altar by his desperate mother, whose prayers to the Madonna were answered and the child was revived. When one walks the path of beauty to places held sacred on the cosmic spider web, the souls memory is released and the way home revealed. Guidance, healing and the release of ones burdens are gifted. The interior of the chapel where the dark lady silently stands is painted black which gives an impression of entering the void and darkness of creation before it takes form. In front of the altar are a couple of large solid silver statues, one commissioned by Emperor Karl Albrechy after his son recovered from a fatal illness, using 41 pounds of silver, the same weight as his son.Within the inner part of the shrine, the dark walls are covered by silver ornaments and from the ceiling hang silver caskets, containing the hearts of the Kings of Bavaria.
As I sat before her presence a clear message was given that she has returned, her presence stronger than ever, and can be found when we enter the stillness and sit within nature. A great time of healing for those who hear her message to move forward on their journey, she offers guidance when we need it the most as we move through these times of change. She can take away our pain when we are suffering if we only ask for her help. She can give us strength when we feel weak. For me I felt an overwhelming knowing that humankind would be all right. She was here, she was present for those who were awakening and would help them to remember.
As I closed my eyes down I felt her breathe as though she was giving me life. I saw a golden light before me and began to spin into the light as I had become stardust. The next thing I saw, was me standing in a sacred circle of stone beings holding the andara crystal in ceremony. I was in a beautiful robe with many ancient markings on it presenting the stone to the Lady of Avalon. I was standing amongst my brothers and sisters, each of them in similar robes and we were making our vow and promise to return. Standing next to the Lady was Merlin, one of the many incarnations of Saint Germaine. It was as though I had never left. This was home and I had merely been sleeping but was now awakening from the dream. We had been guardians of the old teachings and the old ways. We were all present and now finding our way back to one another. We were connected to the violet ray and under the guidance of Saint Germaine. The ceremony I witnessed that I had been a part of so very long ago needed to be performed once again. The Templar Knights of the past had sacrificed their lives to protect the secrets held within the circle that night.
This vision was the guidance I was seeking, to return to Avalon to perform sacred ritual before the turning of the cosmic wheel on 12-21-12. I had felt this so strong for several weeks since sitting with the Grandmother Tree in Mount Shasta. It had been the personal message I had received at the time of the 11:11:11 and now this vision, this message I was receiving from the Black Lady of Altotting confirmed it.
For those who will be called to join me I have begun to coordinate a mystical journey of the heart from Thursday, August 30 through Monday, September 3rd to Glastonbury, England. If your heart is called, we will perform the ancient ceremony within the Chalice Well to awaken the memory of Avalon. There will be private time to connect with Merlin to restore the magick and memory of the world of human joined with the world of the unseen. This is a truly special place, known to be the heart chakra of the planet and the place where the andara crystal first disappeared into the unseen world to be gifted back to the world of human at the time of the Harmonic Convergence in 1993. Once the itinerary is complete and the pricing confirmed I will be sending out the detailed information for those who may be called to join me.
What I have always known is I am simply a messenger and a guide. I am here to assist in awakening those who have fallen asleep under illusion and guide those who are awake back to the Path of Beauty. I am here to heal the web and activte the song and spirit lines through ancient ritual and ceremony. If you are reading these words we are on the same journey weaving the web, remembering, healing and together writing a new story for humankind.

New Moon and the Message of Saint Francis of AssisiOctober 24th, 2011
The new Moon is about moving inward and learning to trust the unknown, the dark void where all is possible in this place of creative potential. It’s the moment when the old passes away and the new is not yet here. A powerful time for sending out your prayer, wishes and desires to the Universe. The dark moon takes us into hidden realms of the soul, the place we hold our memories and experiences, and the place we can draw wisdom from. Working with planetary energies links you to the power of the divine. Each month at the new moon we have an opportunity to rededicate our intentions by reviewing and renewing our personal wish list. New Moons are a blank page on which to speak your dreams out loud. Setting aside a few minutes each month during the new moon phase to focus on yours wishes and desires will help give you clarity of mind and fill your heart with promise. Any intentions stated or written down carries power, take care in considering the things that you really want. This new moon is an excellent night to set the intentions for stepping into our full potential as the 11:11:11 alignment approaches.
After my recent experience in Canyon de Chellys and the incredible gift given from the ancestors as I merged so completely with the spirit of the Deer, (For the story of the deer click here) I have received once again the most amazing gift from the natural world as those from the animal kingdom came to share the message for all of us as we choose to walk the Path of Beauty.
In Mount Shasta there is a secret garden that has areas dedicated to the different Master teachers supporting our journey at this time. One of my favorite areas is the one that offers a place to experience the energies of Saint Francis.
When I approach this area there is a prayer that is displayed that I believe sets the intention for what we are asking to become at the time of the 11:11:11. On this New Moon, Wednesday, October 26th light a white candle and set your intentions to become a vessel of pure light, to step into the service your soul has agreed to provide in awakening those still sleeping. Just to walk a path of beauty with compassion, love and forgiveness is stepping into that potential. The higher the frequency of love you carry within you the greater the magnet to attract all that you desire into your life. Prepare an altar honoring the four elements this night. Incense to honor the element of air, a single candle to honor the element of fire, a vessel of water to honor the element of water and a beautiful flower or stone being to honor the element of earth. Say the following prayer out loud and feel your heart responding to the words.
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen
On a piece of paper set the intentions as you rededicate your personal wish list. Fold the paper towards you and place under the white candle in the center. Take the time to experience the energy of this beautiful new moon as we all prepare to weave the web during the 11:11:11 alignment. There are a couple of spaces still available for those who may be called to join us for this event in Mount Shasta. Last day to register is November 5th click here

Chief Seattle’s Message for our timeOctober 17th, 2011
“When the Earth is sick, the animals will begin to disappear, when that happens the Warriors of the Rainbow will come to save them. All things are connected like the blood, which unites a family. All things are connected. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons of the earth. Man did not weave the web of life; he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself… Chief Seattle
These words have been my truth and part of my knowing sense the White Wolf began to walk with me at the age of 10. It is the wolf that comes to me in the dreamtime to awaken me to the spirit messenger that has put me on notice that I need to be in a certain location at a certain time. There are things not right in our world. We can not wait for someone to save us, we can not wait for others. It is up to us to answer the call, to take action when our heart begins to stir with remembrance. At first it might be faint but it will become stronger and the voice will grow louder for we truly are in the 11th hour.
This time it was the amethyst mountain and the Master teachers that had once again called me back to this sacred place. I had clarity I would be on the mountain for the 11:11:11 alignment but something was calling me with a more immediate timing. After the incredible journey to Canyon de Chellys and all that had transformed our lives in that short period of time, we were all being called to the mountain. We left the Canyon on a New Moon and answered the call from the Master Teachers. Gina would be guided to Sedona during this time, and another beautiful soul Angela, would complete the family that had now grown so closely together. Angela was woven into the tapestry so effortlessly that it was clear we had all agreed to walk this part of the beauty path together.
When I had been in Mount Shasta several years ago at the time of the Total Solar Eclipse a messenger had shared with me that I needed to journey to the other side of the mountain to a place he called Hummingbird Springs. I had tried on several occasions to make this hike but always there was too much snow during the time the mountain would call to me. I knew we would have one opportunity and it would be with this group. The weather forecast was a very high chance of rain but our group would not be discouraged with that. It really didn’t matter to any of us. After the purification ritual in Switzerland a little rain was not going to prevent us from moving forward.
We bundled up and headed into the mist. I looked like the marsh mellow man but I didn’t care. There was something mysterious as the mist surrounded us. I knew there was an etheric bridge that joined Mount Shasta to Avalon and I was sure the mist was part of that bridge. We stepped through the inter dimensional doorway where the heaviness of this earth experience and that of the human world gives way to the mystical and unseen world. It was an hour and half hike to other side of the mountain.
After we stopped for lunch in the magickal forest, we continued on until we came around the corner and stepped into the most beautiful meadow. We came to the place of the faery world and the bridge to Avalon.
I had a strong sense that this path would not be open for long as I could smell snow was in the air. It was important that we had brought the greenstone, the pounamu, stone of peace, that is to be deposited on the 11:11:11 to this sacred place where the water flows from Telos. I placed it in the beautiful stream that flowed from the mountain. We joined together to pray for our world, to become clear vessels of light and expressions of love.
We would soon be returning to our communities and homes and we needed to carry the energy of this place in our hearts. I have to say I was grateful in that moment that the mountain would be our home for the next three months and we didn’t have to get on a plane to go anywhere. I just needed to come down from the mountain to my sanctuary hidden in the trees. The next night it would indeed snow and the path would again be blocked but the greenstone had been blessed in these sacred waters and I was able to gather water for the ceremonies.
The next day we headed to a sacred place of healing. When one sits before flowing water one gains a sense of power. Here at this beautiful sanctuary many Native American tribes had gathered to perform ceremony. From the source of these magnificent waterfalls the healing waters flow into the lake, the lake then feeds into the the great river that eventually flows to the Pacific Ocean. We were blessed with a gorgeous day as we hiked through an old grove forest towards Burney Falls. We sat together receiving guidance and I placed the andara crystal and the pounamu into the water sending our collective prayer of healing and love to all sacred waters. As we reflected on the events of the last several days, we gave thanks and gratitude to be allowed to walk this Beauty Path and gratitude that we had found one another again.
The spray of the waterfall cleansed and purified our bodies and our spirits. and after a magnificent day in the old grove forest we hiked back to the parking lot. We would cross the bridge from one side of the river to the other leaving our burdens behind and receiving once again the power of the flowing water. Just as the waterfall gave strength to the river to carry the message of love, we would be the vessel to carry the message of healing wherever we were guided to journey.
We each were committed to walk the Path of Beauty. I love how spirit always gives us confirmation when the work we have come to do is complete. Often a beautiful rainbow would appear but today the skies were crystal clear. As we approached the bridge there it was. If anyone was asking for a sign it could not have been any clearer than the official sign posted on the trail with the words…Rainbow Bridge!
After so many amazing days walking this path together to illuminate and bring healing to the cosmic web, we spent our next day nurturing ourselves and nurturing the physical body. Stewart Mineral Springs provides the most amazing healing bringing into balance the mind, body and spirit at the source of the natural hot springs. Sacred to the Native American Indians, one feels rejuvenated, nurtured and aligned when you leave.
On our last day together, we would each walk the labyrinth in the sacred garden asking for direction and guidance. We would sit within the obsidian stone circle bringing our pain to the stone for healing and step into the world of the shaman for guidance and direction. It was time now for each of us to step out into the world. We were very different people than when this journey began.
Guy and I headed home to our sanctuary to continue to prepare for the 11:11:11 and would be greeted by two deer.

Spider Woman SpeaksOctober 4th, 2011
The night before there had been some concern expressed by both Jon and Lupita that the weather could change. The smell of rain was in the air and there were dark clouds on the horizon. There were 35 riverbeds we would need to pass if we were to make it to Spider Rock the source of the Cosmic Spider Web. If it rained it would be impossible for us to travel Jon explained. “Not a problem it won’t rain”, I replied. There was NO WAY that we would not make it to Spider Rock. The last three days had been preparing us for this day. My soul’s journey had been preparing me for this my entire lifetime and there was not a moment of doubt that we would not answer the call. We had all come this far. It was the same sense of knowing that we as a collective humanity have come this far. There was no way we would turn back or not anchor in the golden age of unity. To know something with such certainty is the very thing my faith is built on no matter what challenge I may face at any given moment. There is NO WAY…. together we won’t make it. Failure is not in my vocabulary. My two daughters have taught me that through the emotional release I moved through over the last three days. As I closed my eyes I saw the deer running by on the Path of Beauty and my heart smiled.
That morning we all awoke very early. Jon felt we might be able to outrun the rain if we left early in the morning. I climbed out of the tent to the call of my two guardian crows soaring above me and the sun shining brilliantly in the early morning sky. We all felt the anticipation of the day. The boys had school that day, but had so wanted to join us. Jon had decided they could learn more from Spider Rock than what could be offered in the classroom and had made the decision we would all go. We were delighted as our entire family was going to make this journey. We packed our lunch and plenty of water and everyone climbed into the truck. My heart this time was racing with excitement. I was going home. The holy ones were waiting and Spider Woman herself was calling. There were giggles and laughter. We felt like children. I had never felt so sure that this was where I was meant to be. Strangely I felt everyone I had ever known and ever loved in this lifetime was with me. Those who had passed that I missed were walking the Path of Beauty with me.
We arrived at Spider Woman and a wave of joy filled my entire being. I was so grateful to be able to walk this path. All the challenges of the past no longer mattered. I was standing in the presence of creation. Although I had been here two years before we had not been taken to this part of the rock. I sensed this was sacred to the Native guardians and this time we were going with our family. As I climbed higher I could feel the ancestors with me. I could see many standing on the plateau waiting.
I looked to my right and there appeared to be the first strand of the cosmic spider web. My guardian crows flew above and we each stood between Spider Rock and the place of the holy ones. Lupita began to share the story of this place and tears ran down her face as she shared, “I miss my mother”. The exact words my daughter had spoken to me. I missed my mother as well, but here in this sacred place ones burdens are left behind and a great healing occurs. Thousands had traveled to this place seeking healing, vision and guidance. Now we stood where so many before had stood. I knew I too had been here many times before. For the Native American tribes this was their Jerusalem, their Mecca. We each placed are hands on Spider Rock and asked for guidance from Spider Woman. Our group gathered together as we created a circle to pray to heal the cosmic spider web. This was the very source of the new dream. I used the Uluru tuning fork to activate the song lines and heart lines that joined this place to Uluru, the place of the Rainbow Serpent. I placed EB, the obsidian being in the center of our circle with the andara crystal and we joined hands. We prayed for a world filled with beauty. We prayed for peace, unity and healing of the web. We prayed for strength to be the vessels of love and the guiding light we were all intended to be and we sent that light to our spiritual family that is now positioned all over the world.
We each found our place to sit in stillness to receive guidance from the Holy Ones and the answers I had been seeking were answered. I felt the strength returning to my body, my mind now clear and focused and my heart filled with love. My purpose was clear to guide others to walk the path of beauty, to continue to heal the cosmic spider web by creating circles of light in powerful places along the cosmic grid.
When we came down from the rocks, we shared lunch and saw that the skies were clear. We would be able to make one final journey together.
Lupita’s sister had now joined us as well and we climbed into two different trucks to visit the place where the wind is born, the place of new beginnings, known a Wind Rock.
This had been so powerful for me two years before as I had stepped out onto the ledge that overlooked the canyon. Another climb that took ones breath away but we each climbed again at our own pace.
When we arrived at the top Lupita acknowledged the spirit beings of this sacred place. Two years before only the women were able to climb the ledge but this time Guy ventured out. He had told me to watch my step as I climbed out on the edge and I was quite surprised to see that this time he had followed me out.
To sit on the precipice of this rock, high above the canyon you feel limitless as though you can soar. We were all ready to soar. Our work was complete. We had all been through so much. We had all moved through our fears, released deep emotion and come together as such a strong family unit of support with our indigenous family as well. We were different people than the ones who had met four days before. We were one. The next part of the journey would begin. The next part was the challenge of getting down the rock face.
Lupita said we were going to do the Navajo dance down. She and Jon took Marlis’s hand and I saw Marlis as the young child being carefully guided down the mountain with the hand of her mother and father. I took the hand of my sister Gina, whom I am convinced was definitely a Mountain Goat in a past life. Brigitta held her sister Sandy and brother Shoshane’s hand. Guy was behind me taking the hand of his brother Ueli, his sister Jenny, his sister Vanessa and then our beautiful child guides, Dion and Daniel. Together we walked down the face of the rock. We were holding each other’s hands. Lupita looked at me and said. “Trust your feet, trust your shoes, and trust your knowing”. We supported each other all the way down. Lupita began to sing and dance down the rock. Marlis began to sing and dance as well. It is amazing what can be accomplished when we join hands and trust each other. We can do anything.
As we drove home, in the distance a magnificent rainbow appeared. Confirmation we had done all we were asked to do and were individually forever changed.
Sandy described the experience the best, saying she had found her way home to herself. We all had, we had found our way back to our heart light, and we were now ready to move forward to activate the heart lines of our beautiful earth mother. I was heading now to Mount Shasta to sit within the forest for the next three months to write the story of this amazing journey of the Path of Beauty, to align the energetic grid and prepare for the gathering that will occur at 11:11:11. This has been prophesized to be one of the greatest alignments of light that humanity will receive to activate the song lines and awaken those still sleeping. Mount Shasta is one of the most powerful energy vortexes in North America and the place of the etheric mystery school of the Masters. For those who may be called to join us there is still space available. For more information and registration, please click here. The accommodations are booking up quickly as more will be called to the mountain. I will be sending out information how to join with our circle at 11:11:11 in a future email.
I felt emotional leaving this sacred place, tears once again running down my face, but knew I would return again next year. I was at peace and I knew I needed to bring others back to the source of the web, back this the path of beauty.
Wishing you magick, love, the remembrance of home and rainbows, Robbyne

Prayers AnsweredOctober 2nd, 2011
After the powerful day of overcoming so many challenges each of us had faced and the healing of our sacred fire the night before we awoke to a glorious day.
Brigitta and Sandy filled the canyon with a joyful song welcoming the sun, as we all gathered together for breakfast. I had noticed that the simplest of foods that we would eat seemed to be the most delicious I had ever tasted. From the blueberry jelly and peanut butter sandwich to the blue corn mush with berries and the bean and cheese burritos, everything had a taste that seemed otherworldly. Was it the magick of the canyon, the culinary skills of our wondrous chef or was I just ravenous from the hikes and energy moving through me.
Whatever it was, this morning in particular, I felt very much alive and grateful to have the opportunity to walk upon the earth mother. I felt strong. I had so needed to sleep on the earth mother and to be in nature, to be away from the distortion of our modern conveniences and the chaos of our modern world. I also had a knowing that something was going to happen this day. There had been a reason why we had changed the days events around and would be going into the special canyon this morning.
The minute we entered the canyon, within seconds a large turkey vulture flew between the trees, closer than I have ever seen a winged one come, followed by two ravens that were chasing him through the trees into one side of the canyon. My animal allies were putting me on alert and I had a strange and uneasy feeling. Jon was going to take us to the ancient Anasazi ruins that remained on their family’s lands. I felt myself hesitating, going back and forth on whether I should climb to the ruins or remain behind. Interesting enough Guy announced he was staying behind as well as Marlis. The rest of us began to climb.
When we first came around the corner, we spotted a beautiful female deer who had taken notice that we were approaching and began to leap across the rocks to the other side of the canyon. Within a few minutes a second one appeared. My heart smiled as this animal ally teaches us to walk in beauty with compassion, gentleness and love. I felt we were blessed with the deer’s presence, but felt again something was going to happen. This was my second sign and a feeling of anxiousness now swept through my body. As I watched the deer, I didn’t notice a prickly bush that I walked right in to. It drew blood from my knee down to my ankle. The spirit world was asking for an offering of blood. This would be my third sign.
At the first level Sandy decided this was as far as she would go. At the second level Brigitta and I decided we too had gone as far as we wanted. The others continued to climb to the ruins. All of a sudden the turkey vulture, which is considered to carry the greatest medicine of the crow and raven family, flew across the canyon and sat on a rock directly above Marlis. Parallel to the rock we watched as one of the young deers began to run in an erratic movement. I gasped as I saw the deer try to climb the rock face. Both Brigitta and I could feel the deer was frightened and we decided we needed to go back down so the deer would calm down. At the same time, Jon, our Navajo guide also decided the others needed to turn back. He also felt the fear of the deer.
I had just jumped down to the next ledge when I heard Guy yell, “No, go back not that way!” as he called to the deer. Seconds later I heard the cry of Sandy, “Oh no!” Without seeing what had happened, I knew. My heart was now racing in my chest and I ran down the mountain afraid of what I would find. I saw Guy’s face and heard Sandy crying, “It’s our fault, we caused this”.
I ran to the lifeless body of the deer that had fallen from the rock face and burst into tears. Gina began to comfort Sandy and I felt my heart burst open as the tears came even more. “It is not our fault, it would have happened anyway” I heard Gina speak with great wisdom.
Jon approached and began to share with us the ways of his people. They believed that when a person or an animal ally passed, one had to be strong and shed no tears, as it was a sign of weakness and the animal needed to enter the spirit world with strength. He shared a story from deep within his heart about his own soul’s journey, that I knew in sharing the story was healing a memory within him as well. His story of sacrifice moved each of us at a deep level. As I sat on the ground next to the deer, I prayed for the spirit to run free and I acknowledged this animal ally had sacrificed itself for us. This was the way of the animal kingdom, this was the gift nature gave us. I felt the spirit of the deer, the gentleness, flow through me and asked that this spirit help me walk in beauty. In the animal beings passing we were being healed of the memory we each held inside of fearing we would fall if we tried to step into our full potential. Feeling we would fail in some way. I felt a huge healing in my heart and understood why Chyan had shared with me the day before I left her feelings. It was all perfect. It was our journey together and I had to heal myself, I had to be even stronger if I was going to weave the web of light to heal the sacred hoop and continue to awaken others. I sensed there was yet more to this story. No one knew the deep loss I felt as I was grieving now all the memories of my souls journey as flashes of other lifetimes moved before my closed eyes. I took a deep breath and felt a huge release. Jon also shared that the Navajo people believed that the spirit of everyone who had ever walked a path of beauty would return to the canyon and the deer’s spirit would now walk here as well joining with the others to keep the spirit of the canyon alive.
Lupita unaware of what had happened had moments before packed her medicine bag and was travelling out of the canyon with the family when she saw Jon at the side of the road as we were preparing to leave. She pulled over and Jon shared with her what had happened. She came with her family to join us and to share her wisdom. Together we would do a ceremony to honor the deer. She asked many questions. The first question she asked, was who was closest to the deer. It had been Guy. The message was for him she shared. We created a healing fire and again offered the medicine of the healing cedar plant and prayer to honor the animal and the gift.
Lupita looked up from the fire and shared in a quiet, knowing voice, ”The prayer that we each had placed the night before as we gathered around the fire had been heard and answered”. She looked at Guy and said, “your grand daughter has been healed, the ancestors have answered”. In the world of the Navajo, one life is sacrificed for another. The world of nature had sacrificed the deer for the life of a human child. For me it was a powerful message that if we could all come together, if we could heal the pain of our past and honor the journey that had brought us to this place, we could heal the cosmic web and create the new dream. The power of prayer had been answered. We were the dream weavers and it was up to us. ALL OF US!
Even though we were deep within the canyon, and there was no cell service, somehow miraculously the next morning, one text came through. It was from our daughter. Our grand daughter had received a blood transfusion and the first dose of chemotherapy and was doing very well. Although I wanted to be able to offer alternative medicine, this was Tiffany’s journey and there was no doubt in my mind that this child would be healed. I knew Alyse was a special little girl and had come into this world to assist. I also knew the disease humankind had of fear and separation could also be healed. I felt such hope and strength in that moment.
We left this sacred place that belonged to the family. Lupita shared that this canyon where the gift of life had been given, was the place where something special always happened. We traveled now to Dog Rock to sit and be still to receive the wisdom of the stone beings and the knowledge of how to walk the path of Beauty that the shaman had shared with their students hundreds of years before. That night at the fire Lupita and her niece Vanessa would share more of the knowledge of their people. We each went to bed wondering what would happen our final day together as we would travel to Spider Rock to weave light, hope, courage and love into the web. We had all been transformed with the experiences of the last three days and were now ready to come together to do the work we had been called to do.
Join me tomorrow as I share the powerful experience with Spider Woman at the source of the cosmic web where we were all joined together as one light, one heart.
