Opening and Breathing


Visualizing seven and a half billion people holding hands, protected by golden pyramids of light, awakened to our kindred spirits and the need to unite, right now, and come to the aid of Gaia. We each have important roles to play, we each have many stories to tell and poems to write, beautiful pictures to take of this wonderful, amazing planet filled with such a wonderful diverse mixture of people!!!!

We celebrate diversity in my family. Today my granddaughter Loralai was coloring with me she told me she was now part Chinese because her teacher is Chinese. But her teacher is also English and Spanish because there are English and Spanish students in the classroom. She is learning how to say many phrases in Chinese and her teacher has given a marvelous little peep hole into many aspects of life there.
It was sweet how my young granddaughter had figured out the way races work, and it makes sense to me! She is so sweet. And she is part English, Welch, Scottish, Irish, Norwegian, Navajo, Apache and Cherokee. We are quite an eclectic family.

Anyway, the focus is about all of us, showing up for community and setting examples for our children. Let us leave our descendants with a legacy which provides them with the opportunity to flourish. To live in peace and to live in harmony with nature. .

Blessings of Love and light to you all

Time Stretched Into Eternity


Time Stretched Into Eternity

We sat alone all together,
stripped of family, home and liberty
forgotten by so many,
I think they threw away the key
as Time stretched into Eternity
there at the CCDC.

Cleveland County Detention Center
Cold metal, concrete, cold air.
The night they brought me there,
I prayed to God to let me die.
But the ladies put their arms around me,
brought me tissues for my tears.
These women became my new family,
there at the CCDC.

Bright orange scrub sets
of jail clothes we were given.
Old grey scratchy woolen blankets,
such a place I’d never lived in.
Like cattle we were driven
for the food that we were given
as Time stretched into Eternity
there at the CCDC.

The main source of our misery
was that we’d been stripped
of all we held dear.
So many of us had a need to mother,
so we turned to one another,
We listened to each other’s stories,
so many stories to tell.
It stopped feeling so much like hell,
and as our prayer circle did grow
each of us began to glow
there at the CCDC.

To help ease the cold and misery
I began yoga every day.
It made the ladies laugh with glee
at the ways I would bend and stretch
and soon they asked me to show them the way
and the yoga class grew and grew
and we began to feel brand new
during my 97 days
there at the CCDC.

Twelve long years have passed
by so quickly since that time
and I am doing well,
but I know that there in CCDC
somebody’s mother, daughter, sister
is spending yet another day.
There has got to be another way
for the sisters in a world set apart –
each has a story which can break the heart
as Time is still stretching into Eternity
there at the CCDC.

Oh, the freedom of living in the land of trees after 97 days of living in the underground concrete forest was beyond bliss. My friends took me in and comforted me, gave me shelter, had collected my most precious belongings and sent me love and light while I was locked up, gave me hugs and a joyous reunion concert at our favorite local dive. The last song, dedicated to me, was called “Gotta get my baby out of jail” and one of my best friends twirled me around the dance floor and another dear friend picked me up in his arms afterwards and set me on the standing bar. It was our favorite hippie band and so many friends were there, buying me shots and spanking me playfully. After all that time locked up I decided to go out and drink for a few times to celebrate my freedom, but since I hadn’t smoked pot for 97 days, I didn’t partake at all before pleading into Drug Court since I figured it would be easier to go through the diversion program I was scheduled to plead into within sixty days of my release if I just simply abstained. And I was right. Two years and four months i was in that program, and I was on pins and needles the whole time. First there was all the shame for what I had done – selling pot while living close to a school and being the mother of so many kids – my youngest only ages 8 and 5 – was so irresponsible and made the whole community consider me a dangerous person. I didn’t see myself that way – I was so naive. Didn’t think of helping some friends find herb as a bad or dangerous thing, although I was aware it was illegal, I was raised in the counter culture – and all my parents’ friends smoked pot with them. It was their favorite pastime. It was only when they got drunk that things ever went awry, so I thought it was alcohol that was bad, not pot.

And now, thirteen years later, things are definitely changing, but not in the state I live in. Someday I will write a memoir of those 97 days which is much more detailed than this poem. I am thankful to my poetry teacher for getting me to reach inside and personalize it more.

Oh, and please forgive me. And now my daughter is in prison for her problems with addiction to hard drugs, but at least she is in the treatment plan of the place, and it is minimum security. Please forgive me for revealing this. But one thing I would like to emphasize is that both my daughter and I are good people. I got treatment for my problem, and she is getting treatment for hers. I just wish there was treatment available for those without the proper insurance which didn’t have to be so harsh and punitive. Because I am still recovering from the PTSD of the SWAT team that broke down my front door thirteen years ago. I spent years and years making up for my transgressions. Paid thousands and thousands of dollars, went to hundreds of meetings, classes, court every week, was drug tested every week up to three times a week and never failed.

Oh, and when I first began my blog I was in pain management for all the issues with my spine and fibromyalgia. I am happy to say that two weeks after my ovaries were removed I titrated myself off of that pain medication and I am off of them now!!!!!

I consider 2016 a year of tremendous change and it definitely was a year of purification, just like Kaypacha predicted it would be. Thank you all for following my blog, I love you all so much.

May 2017 bring you all many blessings of love, peace, prosperity and good health.

Om namaha shivaya. Rainbow Blessings of Love and Light.

Cleveland County Detention Center

Time stretches into Eternity,
no one knew it could last so long.
Locked down again for another’s fight
we can never right what is wrong.

Forgotten by so many
I think they’ve thrown away the key
and Time stretches into Eternity
here in the CCDC.

They’ve taken away our identity
and everything we hold dear –
some here for an infinity
some know their release is near.
How medieval is our situation
this course which we have taken –
society considers us forsaken
here in the CCDC.

But some have not forgotten
and some prayers are yet heard
none of us are wholly rotten –
being kept so long is quite absurd
here in the CCDC.

So make sure you have a plan.
Be prepared to make a final stand
for Justice, Peace, and Liberty
Here in the CCDC.

Once you’re out, be strong and true
Make sure and follow all the laws too
Because this is a place you
don’t want to return to
here in the CCDC.
No, you don’t want to come back
to a life of hell in the CCDC.

P.S. Now that I have been blogging nearly one year, I decided to reveal this part of my history from many years ago. My offence was for an herb which is now legal recreationally in eight states, with many more about to transition, while medical cannabis is legal in nearly 30 states.

So now you know. Next I will share the revised version I wrote in my Advanced Senior Creative Writing Poetry Class.

Kaypacha’s Pele Report, December 29, 2016

Kaypacha’s Pele Report, December 29, 2016

The last Pele Report of 2016, Tom takes us on a lovely journey (as usual), as he gives us this week’s aspects and then explains them so well. Yesterday we had the New Moon in Capricorn, a good time to reflect, and as it falls at the end of the year, we have much to reflect upon right now. Turning inward feels natural and is healing right now.

Saturn in Sagittarius is square Chiron in Pisces. Jupiter in Libra is opposite Uraus in Aries, but hold on because Uranus is going direct for the first time in six months and will be stationing and then moving back into Pisces.

Saturday, New Year’s Eve, we have Mars in Pisces conjunct Neptune in Pisces which brings an urgency with it, and the potential for a most excellent celebration that night, so please be sure to call a taxi or Uber for a ride home, it’s better to be safe than sorry.

I am hoping to go to a yoga New Year’s party where magic, acroyoga, free yoga, snacks and other fun stuff is going to be going on.

Tomorrow the moon goes void of course for 18 hours. Tom says he could go on for hours about the moon without any aspects, especially for 18 hours. The main point I got out of this is that the hand of the Goddess is directly upon us, shaping our destinies, and we have to be strong.

We have lots of planets all hanging out in common signs for interesting aspects. Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces are the cool places in the galaxy for the Sun, the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Chiron and the south node of the moon.

This blesses us with a very objective, impersonal perspective right now, pulling us literally from within ourselves. It’s not time to hide any longer. The subjectivity of this human experience is of course still valid and we each have our own story, but right now we need to look at the big picture. At what each and every one of us is doing to the planet, of how we are living, and how the choices we make each day are going to affect the lives of all the future generations on Gaia. He brings up the Dakota Access Pipeline again, which is a no brainer for anyone who believes in the right for human beings to have clean water. There is still not clean water in Flint, Michigan, and there isn’t in Chandler, Oklahoma, either. There are many more places as well. And all pipelines do leak, it’s not a question of if, but of when.

Kaypacha says it is time to focus and prepare ourselves for the big changes ahead. And to remember there is an objective intelligence outside and beyond our control, all our lives it’s someone, first our parents, then our teachers, the police, the government, leaders and dictators, religious leaders, movie stars, millionaires – anyone we look up to as a person whom we respect and admire. One of the big changes we need to embrace is that each and every single one of us makes a difference! it is going to take a lot of hard work, but we are amazing! And we’re up to the job. Water is Life! Mni Wiconi.

This week’s mantra: The older and more objective
I get, the more I can clearly see
the world needs some serious attention
not just another party for me.

So let’s start blessing the waters, cleaning up the messes, recycling, reducing, and reusing. Let’s help each other and get community gardens wherever possible. Because together, we make a great team, Humanity.

Kaypacha’s farewell: Namaste. Aloha. So. Much. Love.

Kamea’s farewell: Rainbow Blessings. Om namaha shivaya.

Oh, and Happy New Year’s!

The Twelve Days of Christmas


Hello, my friends, I haven’t been present much, but rather doing best to carry on and be mom and grandma and celebrate Christmas. And with my big family, Christmas is so special. We had our dinner on Christmas Eve, as usual. We allow each person to open one gift that night (a tradition my Mama began long ago). We waited until my son Nick and his beautiful girlfriend arrive. He was carrying a large olive green military style duffle bag filled to the brim with gifts for us all. Bless his heart. He’s 21 now and just started working for Cox Cable up in Tulsa. His father has worked cable since the age of 19, never figured that would be Nicolas’ path, but he seems quite happy. He also loves spinning disks and twirling poi. He has some LED spirals his girlfriend gifted him with when he turned 21, and they are crazy cool to watch in action. My lil athlete, JJ, enjoyed them a lot and gave them a twirl also. (He isn’t small at all anymore, I just call him lil because he’s my youngest. So hard to believe my baby is 18).

After we each opened a gift for Nick and he and Monica opened their gifts from us, we played a fun game my aunt and uncle sent called Reverse Charades. I was quite tired out from all the dinner preparations (Turkey, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, salad) so my brain wasn’t too quick, but Adam and JJ and Nina were a great team. We all laughed so much.

We had a great time for Thanskgiving as well. We all miss Alyssa, but we were blessed to be able to talk to her. And I will be able to visit her again, either before I go to LA, or after.

My big surprise and gift of love from my youngest sister is a round trip plane ticket to Los Angeles the 17th of January. I’m staying two weeks! And be able to visit with many of my family members! All my brothers and sisters live in California with my three nieces and one nephew, most live in LA area. My cousins on my mom’s side also live there, in Sacramento and my aunt and uncle live near San Francisco. I haven’t seen most of them in eight years. So I am feeling blessed.

I like the idea of having twelve days of Christmas, and while I am not handing out gifts all those days, I do keep my tree up, turn the lights on when it begins to get dark, and meditate and pray a lot. Sending lots of love and light to the Water Protectors at Standing Rock and all over the world where Big Oil needs to be stopped.

Wishing you all the happiest and safe holiday season for the rest of 2016. Mercury will be going direct pretty early on in 2017, which is a 1 year, and we should all prepare ourselves for unprecedented levels of energy to hit the planet and fill us up with more Light and Love.

I have been listening every day to Patricia Cota-Robles gift from Mother Mary, her Rosary for Ascending Humanity totally activates all twelve crystalline solar chakras in a beautiful way.

Many Rainbow Blessings of Love and Light to you all, my friends. Rose petals sprinkled across your sacred path.
