Golden Keys in Children’s Literature

Golden Keys in Children’s Literature

Pondering on the dream I had almost two years ago, about all the masters, saints, avatars, wise ones, earth angels and boddhisatvas were gathered on a high flat mountain plateau like the one in Taos. The air itself was golden and a loud voice declared, “Ho, Dragon Slayers. The time has come to cease slaying the Dragon. You are all now to be Dragon Tamers. And all the keys will be found in the ancient texts, myths, holy books,songs and stories of all times.

For we are the writers of this epic human story, and it is huge. The whole Universe has been joyously awaiting our ascension into the Golden Age.

Even children’s books and fairy tales hold the keys. The Chronicles of Narnia give keys to dealing with planetary transformation, and also sacrifice, overcoming the deep dark secrets of magic through innocence and surrender, only to achieve resurrection, overturning the ancient dark secrets with the older magic of LOVE. Aslan, for C.S. Lewis, represents Jesus Christ. But also God, the creator of Narnia, and also providing the doorway into the new world when corruption brings Narnia to its demise. And the paradise he takes Lucy, Edmund, Peter and Susan is far more real and beautiful than either Narnia or Earth could ever be. “Farther up and further in!” Asian joyously sings as he leads his beloved children to their true home. Of course all their loved ones are there, for they have crossed over the rainbow bridge through a dirty stable door. Things are not always as they seem. The false prophet, an ape disguised as Aslan, is the one who brought war and corruption across the land. Perhaps Lewis was also prophetic, for there certainly are familiar themes in American politics (and other countries as well) going on today.

The two other books coming to my mind currently, containing golden keys to taming the Dragon are Heidi and The Secret Garden. Both stories emphasize the healing power of Nature. Both Heidi and Mary Collins from The Secret Garden lose their mothers at an early age. Mary also loses her father. Both are sent to live with relatives. Both have issues at first with their new homes, but after spending time out in Nature, each with a friend who guides them (Peter the goat herd in Heidi, and Dickon, the animal and nature loving brother of Martha, Mary’s nurse maid in The Secret Garden).

And they both have cousins who are crippled. Well to do children who are given everything their doctors and nurses and busy, mostly absent fathers can think of, except fresh air, sunshine and nature. Both are motherless as well. In both stories the heroines undergo deep personal transformation and healing, trials and tribulations, and after Nature teaches them her secrets, they share this golden key with their crippled cousins. Mary Collins’ cousin is Colin, Heidi’s cousin is Clara.

It is upon taking these children outside, Colin to the Secret Garden, and Clara to the Swiss Alps where Heidi returns to live with her beloved and troubled grandfather, that they both achieve true healing, within and without, and learn to walk again. And while Heidi and Mary are the facilitators and Nature the golden key, the other golden key is within each of them and each of us.

Which leads me to a scene in The Secret Garden where Mary and Colin are talking about the Universe. And Colin tells her about a holy man, one so holy that if one should be blessed to look into his mouth, one would see the whole universe. Mary argues with him about this idea, declaring it illogical, and Colin says it doesn’t have to make sense.

I feel Frances Hodges Burnett and Johanna Spyri were pointing out the golden keys to healing in these magical tales, just as Lewis was in the Narnia tales, for meditation can take us to other realms within.

As above, so below. As without, so within.

It is clearly evident this Mars and Mercury conjunct in Cancer along with the Sun opposing Pluto in Capricorn is causing some extreme behavior (and bizarre, and horrific) on the global scene, but at the same time people are praying, people are healing, people are gathering together and rising up for human rights and for our only planet.

There’s been times when I fell into despair and couldn’t get out of bed much due to many challenging health issues and depression (listing them anymore is claiming them and am done with that as best as possible). And then when I began spending more time outside, doing yoga, planting herbs for my cooking, coloring mandalas, meditating and going to my own inner sun did I begin to truly heal on a deep cellular level.

And we all are healing. We are each little holograms of the Universe, and we must be like hollow bones and keep our vessels pure.

Namaste, my friends. Blessed be.

Dancing With Trickster

Dancing With Trickster

Trickster always comes laughing.

He sees me stumble, sees me lose it
sometimes completely lose my sense of reason,
He sees me freak out and cry out in pain,
and he comes laughing.

He shows me how to learn
from those stumbling times,
how to laugh even when I am afraid,
how to be a bad ass spiritual warrior,
how to learn to not be wounded anymore,
how to sit still and listen
to this body,
this body talks
and can transform
bit by bit
and by leaps and bounds –

you choose the style
and together we can dance
and laugh with Trickster,
for He is here to help us learn.

He leads us to the dance
of the Rainbow Dream Warriors.

Paradoxes

Paradoxes

To be here
and not here,
parallel universes
obvious and apparent,
for things have
gotten strange.

Yet we are still here,
and despite the strangeness
and obvious brutality
of the dying patriarchal paradigm,
we are birthing ourselves
into a new world,
for we are the children of the sun,
And no task is too mighty
for us to accomplish United.

This is why they seek to divide us,
by shade of skin,
the ways we pray,
the ways we vote,
how much money we make,
how able bodied we are,
our choice of gender and sexual identity.

So we rise up everywhere
for our freedoms,
which are naturally inherent,
as are our rights
to clean air, clean water,
unadulterated food.
And the right to not be
brutalized because of skin color
or religion,
or living in a country
filled with oil,
we rise up and demand peace!

They will try to keep us distracted
by scandal after scandal,
all while attacking the planet and
her people with a whole new
flavor of ferocity,
for they are so afraid of the
progress we have made,
they would have it all undone,
for the sake of white supremacy
the hierarchical man
with the plan
of destruction.

We are at war
yet we are also at peace,
people everywhere choosing
this path, praying, meditating,
finding we are so much
more than we ever dreamed,
and United we can make a change,
we can save this world,
but first we have to learn
to live with each other.

This is the golden key which
opens the door to the New Age.
The journey is still long and hard,
yet we are closer than ever before.
So keep shining, hold onto
and Love one another,
for it is Love that sets us free.
So things are crazy and miraculous
at the same time.
The old world is dying,
the new is being born.
Mad folk run war machines,
while magic folk embrace
shamanism, serenity, transformation.

We rise up together for every cause.
People marching in the streets,
people bringing peace,
choosing peace,
people brave enough
to bring new life
into this topsy turvy world,
we are the children of the sun.
We are the Golden ones.

Namaste.

The Time Has Come

The Time Has Come

The time has come
Venus winks and showers
lessons of Love and healing,
Chiron limping the wounded
warrior way, learning through
suffering, falling to fly.

All the planets line up
to lend a hand, as
humanity gathers for
our final stand.
All great tales share
this journey we are
sharing, these days
of the end of illusion,
these days of transformation,
these days of ascension.

The sun and moon lead the show,
as angels blow their trumpets
and rainbow warriors of every color,
from every corner of this world
rise up and begin to paint the
Rainbow Bridge.

This Rainbow Bridge was first
painted by warriors long lost,
who danced the Ghost Dance
connecting Heaven and Earth,
who tapped into power so raw and so real,
the terrified white cowardly soldiers
shot the dancing warriors, the mothers with
their babies, the elders and the children.

The Heavens themselves cried out as new
rivers ran red with the blood of this massacre.
Yet some dancers lived, some lived to preserve
this Lakota dance from Wounded Knee.

The time has come to heal the pain
of the wars and genocide mankind has
inflicted upon one another.
The time has come to activate
the crystal skulls.
The time has come to purify
and cleanse the waterways and rivers,
to work together building the new earth
where we see our oneness with each other,
where we plant seeds of love instead of war,
where we respect each other and all of creation,
as we join the rainbow warriors from all
four corners of this earth
in this most joyous celebration
since the dawn of time.

The celebration heralding the Age of Aquarius,
a brand new age bringing with it solutions
for all the problems plaguing humanity,
for all solutions shall be revealed.

Once we stop being so afraid of our differences,
we shall be amazed at how much more quickly
our common solutions shall be realized.

We are here. It is time. Remember to breathe, my friends.

Namaste.

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!

Veterans Arriving At Standing Rock

Veterans Arriving At Standing Rock

I am happy to say that despite the Army Corps of Engineers issuing an eviction notice to the Oceti Sakowin Camp, but then making it clear they would not be using force (after global outcry, good job world) and despite the fact that the governor of North Dakota also issued an evacuation notice supposedly for the safety of the people because there was a blizzard this week, so the temperatures are dropping to subzero, thousands of veterans are arriving, and will act as human bodyguards for the peaceful prayerful Water Protectors, led by the wise elders of the Standing Rock Sioux.

Despite the complete transparency and actual live streams of all the barbaric atrocities committed against the peaceful protectors being witness by hundreds of thousands of people, the Morton County Sheriff’s Department continues to spin outlandish narratives about the group of “bad protestors” who have thrown rocks, burning logs, and even Molotov cocktails. What many of us have seen are peaceful protectors being attacked with dogs, maced, shot with tear gas, flash grenades, beanbag bullets, rubber bullets and water can one in subzero temperature. The narratives being spun by ND law enforcement are all lies. There was a DAPL employee sent in with a truck who shot a round of live ammo but he was arrested but not charged, so his gun was planted on a woman named Red Fawn, who is being used as a scapegoat for that incident. And she is a beautiful warrior woman, innocent of bogus charges and full of Light. They changed her charges and are sending her case to Federal Court. There is never any evidence of the oil moon’s allegations.

Regardless of all that, when the whole world is watching and UN delegates and CNN reporters are on the ground along with thousands of veterans, the outlook is positive. The treaties of 1851 and 1868 need to be honored, and the land returned to the Sioux. The Oceti Sakowin.

I also found out that the same company attempting to bully and drill its way under the Missouri River despite injunctions from the Department of Justice and the Army Corps Of Engineers to stop has a pipeline spill elsewhere in North Dakota already, and a new one in Pennsylvania which could potentially poison the water of four million people. The Dakota Access Pipeline could poison the water of 18 million folks.

I joined in a world wide prayer circle past Saturday at 2 CST, and will do the same tomorrow. There are many prayer circles and beautiful videos to watch. I am immersing myself whenever possible in these live streams to the point where it almost seems I am there. Praying in the morning, noon and night. And all over the planet, indigenous people are leading the movement to save the planet. For water truly is Life and we are water. And we definitely cannot drink oil! Together we can change the world. It is time.

Rainbow Blessings of Love and Light, my friends. We are the ones we have been waiting for.

Solar Flare Alert

Solar Flare Alert


Many may be experiencing the ascension flu, or ascension hangover. Symptoms may include itching scalp, upset stomach, body aches and pains, insomnia, fatigue, intestinal upset, mood swings, decreased appetite. We are transforming. And we are having a huge solar storm – coronal hole opened on the surface of the sun, pointing towards Earth, expected to hit September 28.

We are uncovering. Peeling back the layers of the veil. I personally feel like a crab which has crawled out of its shell.

Hang in there, folks, and keep shining! Prophecies are being revealed, the current covenant of the rainbow kept.

A’ho Mitakuye Oyasin. Rainbow Blessings.
