Sound Healing

I went to a Sound Healing workshop last week and I was really impressed with how powerful it was. Tom Kenyon has an amazing 4 octave voice and he made sounds while playing crystal singing bowls, Tibetan bowls and drums. It was Cosmic Fun!

He would talk for a bit, he’s really funny, then move into the sound space and we would all be transported into another reality for a while. Then we’d walk beside the pond and hug the trees to make contact with the Earth and the elements, then come back inside and do it all again for three magical days.

Unfortunately he is taking the whole of 2015 off and isn’t clear whether he will do workshops again in the future.

He is a scientist by preference and is slightly embarrassed by the woo-woo side of his work. But he has seen so many miraculous occurrences from doing it that he can’t refuse to go there. He would stand on the left side of the stage and tell us all the scientific proof about what sound does in the body; making new connections in the lightfield within us, and then he would cross over to the right side to do the music, and he could not speak rationally from that side. It was hilarious.

It made me very aware of my own dichotomy. I have a lightworker side that totally believes in the beautiful future of this planet and is doing it’s best to help in that transformation. Then I have a cynical side that pops up if I’m too much in the mainstream culture that says, “Not enough people care, we can’t get this done, and how did we all get so narcissistic, so wrapped up in ourselves.”

Anyway there were 500 people there at the workshop, all committed to helping create a new reality in their own special ways, all spending time and money to make changes in their own lives. It wasn’t just a great trip, like back in the days of the Beatles, it was deep life change occurring.

I was pretty out of it for the whole week since I got back, adjusting to some huge changes in my brain. I looked like I was here; walked the dog, fixed food, got out orders, but at least 35% ย of me was processing changes. When I walked on the beach and could just tune into what was happening in my body I could actually feel energy shifting.

So this is probably too woo-woo for a lot of people but it seems that I’m coming out of the closet on woo-woo. It is where I’m headed. I’ve just sent for a crystal singing bowl, the new kind with a handle that has an incredibly pure sound. I have had a Tibetan bowl since the ’70s and I don’t play it often enough – busy making a living instead of a life ๐Ÿ˜‰

In the final sound session we had we were told to find within ourselves the quality that we are ready to move into, perhaps a quality we have felt lacking in or one that interests us to explore. Mine was Powerful Compassion.

As an fast moving Aries I sometimes got (notice that past tense) irritated with other people’s speed of growth. Now I call on Powerful Compassion and I really get it that we are all exactly where we need to be at every moment. And I’m also willing to move on at my own speed, probably alone much of the time, not trying to drag anyone along with me.

So what would that quality be for you? A quality you see in others perhaps and wish you had it. Or one that you see as the next step in your growth. Let me know in the comments below and we can all root for you.

Huge blessings


100 Day Challenge

I am about one third of the way through the 100 day challenge to learn the trapeze and I have to be honest, it’s not going as well as I expected ๐Ÿ˜‰

I had a lesson on the first day, April 1st, April Fools Day, and found that I could not actually get up on the trapeze from the floor. You have to bring your legs up and over your head while hanging from the trapeze. My legs were not going anywhere!! Just think about it for a minute. There aren’t many, or any, actions in daily life that bring your up legs over your head from standing.

So that was a disappointment. Once up on the trapeze – with the help of others, I was doing alright but I was a bit distracted by my granddaughter having her lesson on the silks at the same time. And I realized I just wanted some space to play about, not really learning anything, so I could get comfortable with the whole thing.

Anyway I will post a mercifully short video of it so you can see what the beginning stage is. The hope being, that the ending video on July 1st will just knock your socks off with my comfort on the trapeze. Not my huge talent or expertise, but my comfort and pleasure swinging like a child.

Since then I have been doing some practicing on the bar I have at the house so I can increase my upper body strength and comfort with the learning. But, to be honest, I have not done it every day. I had some emotional upsets going on for a while and my commitment wavered.

But I have been witnessing my process and going through huge transformation at the same time. We all have actually. There are many planetary changes going on that are affecting us all on a cellular level. And they will continue for quite a while. All conscious beings are on fast forward to transformation whether they remember signing up for it or not. For me, it was no less than finally deciding whether I wanted to commit to doing my work here on Earth or stick my head back into the sand.

A week ago, in an intense transformational process, I decided I would commit to it entirely and let nothing else in my life distract me from it. I am being asked very firmly by Spirit to stop piddling around and get on with it. Now is the Time! The trapeze is not a distraction. It is a step on the journey. I want to prove in my own life that old age is not a deterrent to anything you set your heart on doing. It’s a part of my message.

So I am now back on my life’s path with determination to see it through and give what I have to give, in case someone else will find it useful. It’s a blissful feeling. I feel totally at peace.

I am also revising my book, ‘Come Home to Your Body.’ which I wrote and got published 17 years ago, before I got sick. On rereading it, I am amazed at how together I was back then and how clear I was. I lost that total clarity when I got sick and now I am reclaiming it. In the intervening years since getting well I have been very busy creating things, like the weightvest, and many other inventions, but now I am ready to reclaim the space of teaching that I had then.

Getting truly well is a long journey. That’s why I empathize so strongly with women who are feeling healthy and then they get a stupid Dexa scan and are told to live in fear their bones will collapse. I address that on my other site but now I want to address all the fears of women as they get older and they hit the negative programming in this culture.

I think I can help with that because I can see through the illusions of the programming. And I can see who is drinking the Koolaid and going down the ugly road of aging as it is laid down here in the US. I’ll be there at the Koolaid stand to say, “Wait, don’t drink that, there is another way! Gaia needs you and all your special skills and talents RIGHT NOW! You can make a difference.”

Peace and blessings always,
