Definitely the Year of the End of Illusion


Good morning, my friends. I have been so busy that I haven’t even given myself time or space for my beloved blog. So much has happened, of course for each of us and all of us as Gaia is going through transition and so are we. I spent a lot of time in prayer during Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Jose, Katia and now Maria. And for those struggling to rebuild after loss of life and homes in Mexico after two devastating earthquakes a week apart. And of course the fires on the Northwest Coast, the monsoon flooding in Bangladesh and so much more. What astounds me is that there are still many who believe the 3% of scientists who are climate change deniers (in that they think human activity has nothing to do with the rising of the oceans and polluting of our skies, water and earth. Not to mention that not only do carbon emissions contribute to the rise in global temperatures, but all the nuclear waste and stockpiled weapons do as well, because human beings still haven’t figured out how to safely dispose of the waste, which never ever cools down. And that was already quite a problem 40 years ago, as was pollution. I was blessed to have parents who were aware and took our family to live in the mountains of New Mexico to live off the land when I was 9 years old. We thought these times would happen in the Seventies. Then we moved away from the farm to Albuquerque, and 15 years later were living in Los Angeles just in time for Hands Across America and also Harmonic Convergence. It was then I began to read much more about prophecies – the ancient Mayan calendar, Nostradamus, the New Testament and many other sources. And I also began reading lots of books about self healing by authors like Dr. Gerald Janpowlski of Love is Letting Go Of Fear, and Dr. Bernie Segal of Love. Medicine and Miracles.

In the early Eighties, my mom took my sister, my daughter and I to Campbell Hot Springs, where we met Leonard Orr and Sondra Ray and learned birthing. This is located somewhat near Mount Shasta, and at the age of 19, my kundalini began to awaken. We also met healers from around the world and participated in quite a few workshops. We were taught a rain dance by a Navajo medicine man and it began to rain and rained with our little Champ all the way across the Mojave Desert to New Mexico. When we returned, all our friends said we had changed. So we would sing the Om song to them.

I moved back and forth between California and New Mexico several times in the Eighties and early Nineties, til moving to Oklahoma back in 1994, after my grandfather died in a house fire. My ex-husband and I and kids (four of mine and one he had practically adopted) moved to Oklahoma. I then had my tubes tied back together along with three other abdominal surgeries in August of 1994, for I wished to give my husband children of his own. Or at least one child. But, I had two more children, one in 1995 and one in 1998. In 2001, after 9/11, I found a website called Light Fountains, where I found like minded folks with whom I could discuss spiritual insights and topics. It was then I came up with my magical pen name Kamea Moonmaiden. And began to write daily about how we are all connected, how forgiveness is key, how wars must end, and how Love is the strongest force in the Universe.

Anyway, since I wrote “Why Are You Drinking?” my daughter Alyssa finally came home!!! That was a very happy day. We went to visit my son who had fallen down the stairs at the hospital and had a wonderful visit. He was released the next morning and now has a recovery plan. There are many programs here in town to help people with medical, mental health and alcoholism issues. And so he’s getting started with the process and paperwork of getting into these programs.

It’s been a busy time since Alyssa got home, and she will be moving
into a sober living house next week. She is so strong and healthy now!

And I am almost done with a long slew of various appointments with specialists, and most of my tests are all coming back negative (which is a positive thing).

I slacked off on my yoga for a while as my teacher went to the festival in Oregon celebrating the total solar eclipse, and it took him a while to return. I did practice once a week, but compared to five times, that’s pretty much slacking.

And now I am about to move into a townhouse next month, one with a washer and dryer in it. And I will be living by myself.

My youngest son is now away at college in Nebraska, having the time of his life and relishing his independence and apparently very popular with the girls. My 21 year old son also travelled to Oregon for the eclipse festival. Apparently there were about 100,000 people there!

He came to visit last weekend so he could see his sister, it had been almost two years for them!

Then the storms escalated and I went into a quiet calm space, so that instead of sending energy, I was just being the calm in the center of the storm, praying and focusing on love and light and seeing how our thought patterns affect the weather patterns. And of course all of the above mentioned man made physical reasons.

Now that we are near the end of the Year of the End of Illusion, I am astounded by the accuracy of the predictions by Kaypacha at the beginning of this year. Talk about love bringing everything and anything unlike itself up to the surface!

This is far different from my usual format, but this week’s Pele Report hasn’t been uploaded, so just a recap of the last few days and a link with the report for 09/13/2017. Venus joined the New Moon in Virgo yesterday, where they are hanging out with Mars, Mercury and the Sun. It’s a Virgo party, helping us to get focused and work hard on our projects and into making our dreams realities. Jupiter in Libra will be moving into Scorpio for a year next month, leading us to deeper levels of self awareness and transformation. We shall dig deep, deep and deeper into the inner workings of our individual and collective psyches. Neptune and Chiron are still in Pisces, which is in opposition to the Virgo party. Pluto will still be in Capricorn for a while, Uranus is still in Aries and Saturn is still in Sagittarius. Lots of trines, squares, a Yod, conjunctions and oppositions going on, which the new Pele Report will elaborate on with more detail. Funny thing is, the week of the peripheral eclipse at the beginning of June, Kaypacha predicted more water and lots of Mermaid energy. A bit over a month later and we have had more enormous hurricanes in one season since I can remember, and I am over half a century of age!

Okay, we finally have more groceries and my yoga teacher has returned, and today I am going to look at the townhouse I wish to rent. So I will skip last week’s mantra because this week’s mantra is coming up today.

However, if you didn’t get what chance to see the report last week, here it is:

And as Kaypacha always says, Namaste. Aloha. So. Much. Love.

Oh! I also had a fantastic energy healing session with D’oyen Fraser which I will blog about very soon, as it was quite eventful and amazing. And I gave my first video guided visualization healing pro bono as I am just getting started with that form of energy work, and it went quite well. I could tell my friend had some relief from her pain and could see her smiling and glowing as I helped her ground and drain her adrenal glands and bring in light from her central Sun to wash over her and through her and balance her chakras.

It is now 6 a.m. and time to begin some of my daily chores, but I will be back this afternoon before yoga this evening.

Rainbow Blessings of Love and Light, my friends. I love you all! Hang in there and keep shining, for as we heal ourselves, we heal each other, our communities, and finally the world. We each do make a difference!

Oh, and I won’t mention any names of politicians even though after binge reading the news from several perspectives am in the know more than ever before but wow, the goings on at the White House have certainly validated the astrological name for this year.

Remember we are nearing the end of duality, so there won’t be such widely split divides between the sides anymore in the future.

We’re all people, and I celebrate diversity.

How boring this world would be if we were all alike.

Remember to keep vibrations lifted, drink lots of water and know that the dawn is no longer a long, long way away. It is upon us. Can you feel it too? Also remember the end of one age ushers in the beginning of another.

A’ho Mitakuye Oyasin. All my relations, blessed be.

Why Are You Drinking?


The next planet was inhabited by a tippler. This was a very short visit, but it plunged the little prince into deep dejection.
“What are you doing there”” he said to the tippler, whom he found settled down in silence before a collection of empty bottles and also a collection of full bottles.
“I am drinking,” replied the tippler, with a lugubrious air.
“Why are you drinking?” demanded the little prince.
“So that I may forget,” replied the tippler.
“Forget what?” inquired the little prince, who already was sorry for him.
“Forget that I am ashamed,” the tippler confessed, hanging his head.
“Ashamed of what?” insisted the little prince, who wanted to help him.
“Ashamed of drinking!” The tippler brought his speech to an end, and shut himself up in an impregnable silence.
And the little prince went away, puzzled.
“The grown-u[s are certainly very, very odd,” he said to himself, as he continued on his journey.

Excerpted from The LIttle Prince, Written and Illustrated by Antoine de Saint Exupery. One of my favorite books in the world.

Because my mother was an alcoholic, this part always made me cry. Especially after she passed at the age of 54.

Now one of my grown kids has alcoholism. He has been trying to stop, going to meetings, succeeding in a few days of sobriety, goes to some meetings, gets some good fellowship and then relapses again.

Yesterday, he ended what had begun what was supposed to be a secret two day bender by falling down the concrete stairs outside my home. He had assured me he was only a bit tipsy and could take out the trash. I was cleaning house when one of the construction workers knocked on my door to let me know my son had fallen. I rushed down the stairs. At first glance, when I saw my son lying upside down with his neck twisted and his head on the porch below, I thought he was dead. Especially because he was completely passed out, the trash bag laying beside him. It took a minute to rouse him and at first he didn’t want to go to the hospital. He was angry I had called paramedics and insisted he was fine. The construction workers spoke Spanish, and I asked one, “El no esta bien, que no? El necesita ayuda ahora, es un emergencia, es verdad?” (I am out of practice with my Spanish but they did understand me and nodded in concurrence. They were so sweet. One handed me a phone and said to please hand it back to him as soon as I was done because he didn’t like talking to cops. He spoke English extremely well, most likely a Dreamer. I thanked him and handed him back the phone and he said he had to get out of there and I told him I understood and thanked him profusely. All the workers disappeared when the first responders arrived.

Well, after they took my son to the hospital (and I wasn’t able to go as I temporarily do not have the new to me car anymore), I talked to him on the phone, and he was crying, saying he was so sorry. I told him no sorries, it’s a disease. A terrible disease. Un enfermedad horrible.

Anyway, instead of weeping this morning I thought about sharing this quote from the Little Prince and I wonder, why? Why does this happen? Thankful that the alcohol prevented him from breaking his neck, but overwhelmed by the fact that he was drunk enough to fall halfway down those stairs that way. I had no idea. After they left I found several empty half pint bottles underneath where he likes to stay when he visits for a couple of days, next to the couch in my small living room. He has had a pretty cute apartment since March, but comes to visit often because he becomes so lonely, but it is on the condition that he not drink at my house.

So he tries to hide it, lies, etc. Luckily, he is being admitted to the hospital again, hopefully this time they will consider keeping him longer than one week so that he can get the help he needs. Because he is just like the tippler who drinks to forget that he is ashamed, when what he is ashamed of is drinking.

A cycle I pray all with alcoholism or other addictions to find the courage to break. For it is endless and it ends with death.

This has been a rough month. I will get back to my routine of typing up my little summaries of Kaypacha – I even have notes for the past two week shows but my world has been filled with so much. At any rate, my heart goes out to all who have this affliction and all who love people who have this affliction.

And the moon is now in Aquarius, moving on up to the dreamy Full Moon in Pisces on Wednesday. Along with Neptune in Pisces, it’s adding quite an air of dreaminess and emotional vulnerability to the whole scenario. Thankful for the Sun having moved on into stable, solid, hard working Virgo to help ground us. There is so much more and after my massages this afternoon i will go ahead and type them up for my collection and to share because I love to. I know anyone can go to YouTube to watch them. I just like having them here at my little website.

One of my best friends in the whole world has begun recovering from the same affliction my son has, and is doing so much better already. And is back in my life as a supportive person who can personally identify with what he is going through, so she has a perspective I never acquired.

I just talked to my son and he is stable. Got quite a goose egg on his noggin but he has always had a hard head. And he wants to get better, he truly does. Perhaps he will be able to surrender and be able to overcome this illness. Other people in my family have.

I know my posts are usually uplifting, but in light of all that has happened on our planet the past week, with the floods from Hurricaine Harvey in Houston and now moving into the midwest and all the flooding in India and Nepal and fires in Oregon and other natural disasters around the planet and now Hurricaine Irma is getting ready to hit the East Coast later this week, this is really minimal. But it still matters a lot to me. So I will send out prayers, prayers and keep shining the light and taking care of myself as best as I can, some days a good job, somedays I seem to forget to hold this body carefully and will exhaust myself beyond the point of exhaustion. And that is what I need to surrender – the urge or desire to control.

My whole family wants to help heal my son heal, but all healing is self healing. We can be supportive without being enabling, and we can love him, but he must heal himself. And we can have compassion. I am just thankful right now that he is alive and getting the help he needs.
