On Setting Boundaries.........

I recently learned, that along with being and staying is also important to have boundaries.......


Don't we all know that!!!????

Well......I hope so.......but how do we set them?  No one teaches us that............except someone did

 teach me....

And here is how you do it..........are you ready?

After you are grounded...........

Take a deep and out.......

And in a meditative state.......

Think of this..........and say out loud..........

'I accept'..........and fill in the rest.........

What do you accept?, joy, friendship, abundance, good health, can add to your list at any time.......

Next.......out loud.........say.......

'I release'..............and say what you release............fear, negativity, pain, anger........and on and on.....and again remember you can add to this list at any time........


Say out loud.........

'I reject'........and say what you reject..........I reject manipulation, I reject pain, I reject aggression........and can always add to this list...........

And have the image of the things that you reject, simply washing off you as if you have an umbrella on your head.......and these things simply reflect off of that.........

Also remember as you  empty yourself of all the things you want to must fill the void with imagine your self filling with LOVE as you did with energy.......from the bottoms of your feet into every cell of your body............this is so you do not fill that void with anyone else's negative stuff........

So you become fully protected........the universe now knows what you accept, release and reject........

and I must tell you ..........

this works.

I have learned this, and the grounding technique from an amazing healer.....Diane Vickers.......

Thank you again, Diane......

On Being Grounded...........

Being 'grounded' is particularly useful when you feel you may be overpowered by a situation or individual........such as an encounter with an ex-spouse, a meeting with your attorney, counseling a friend, being with a combative child.....

or if you are particularly sensitive......a trip to the mall or grocery store or a drive on a busy freeway....will require it

Being grounded is important.


I have learned many techniques for grounding one's Self, but this one has been especially helpful.

And now......

In a quiet meditative state....... take three slow deep breaths......




And imagine yourself growing roots from the bottom of your feet.....large roots the size of the bottoms of your feet...........

growing deep into the earth

and on their journey to the center they come upon a stream......

But this is not a stream of water........this is a stream of 


And when you reach that stream of energy.....imagine it 'flavored'.....and of course my mind went to vanilla.....but imagine it flavored with what you want to absorb from this stream of energy.......

it could be courage, strength, joy, abundance.......anything you desire.....

now suck up this energy into your roots........

and up into all the cells of your body.......

into the soles of your feet, into your ankles, up into your chins, calves, up into your knees,

into your thighs, into your pelvis, your buttocks, into your core, your stomach, your lungs, 

then into your heart........and feel it there for a moment, filling your heart...

draw it into your chest, and shoulders, and down your arms, into your hands.......but not out of your hands.....

and back up through your arms and into your neck and into your head and each feature of your face, your chin, your mouth, lips, nose, cheeks, eyes, eye brows, third eye, and into your scalp....

  then let it flow out of the top of your head, your crown chakra.... 

and feel it flow back down over your body, your front, your back, your sides.....

and back into the earth.............

Where you again find it and once again fill your body with this energy........

This technique seems to need concentration at first, but once is suggested for 30 days...

 you can accomplish this in an instant.

Temple Doors........

Hyemeyohsts Storm

Some people have said that a Representative government is what we know to
be a Democracy.  Others say that Freedom is what makes a Democracy.  Others
will insist that Democracy is a balance between State and Church.  There
are also those who say that Democracy is a balance between the rich and the
poor.  And there are those who will claim that Democracy is the balance
between the learned and the unschooled.  The bold say that Democracy is
tolerance and the acceptance of all races and peoples as being equal. 
The woman known as Temple Doors said all this and more about Democracy
many hundreds of years ago.  She said that in actuality the founding
principle of a true Democracy was a Representative government that was
perfectly balanced between female and male, because this Balance is the
Source of all that is Living and Natural.
She never used the words Democracy or Democratic, but she did use the
words Circle of Law.
By the time Temple Doors was born the great Circles of Democracy - the
Circle of Law - had been outlawed and forbidden by the new feudalistic
governing powers.  She is the human responsible for the preservation and
renewal of the Circle of Law throughout the Americas.
It is important to speak of how the Medicine Wheels came to North America
from South and Central America, and were kept by the Zero Chiefs.
According to the records kept by the Flower Soldiers, the weather patterns
of Mother Earth went through incredible changes.  Places that were once
beautiful plains filled with animals and grass changed over a period of a
thousand years to become jungles or deserts.
Five great migrations of people left Central America and settled the
North; these were called the Great Webs or Spider Roads by the record
keepers.  These large migrations occurred between one thousand and three
thousand years ago.
The Spider Woman Keepers are responsible for the information we have of
these migrations.  For simplicity's sake, the name Spider Woman can be
translated as "Guardian Keeper" or "Corn Carrier."  The reason for this is
because the tradition grew up out of the Gardeners.  These women not only
kept the Gardens, they also kept the history.
Temple Doors was the Priestess-General responsible for one of the largest
of the great migrations.  She led her people north, out of Central America,
into what we presently know as our Southwest.  This great migration took
place between two thousand and twenty-five hundred years ago.  During this
journey, half of her people perished from war, disease, and hunger.
It was this woman General who brought the Great Circle of Law and all the
Medicine Wheels to the North.  She also brought corn, squash, beans, and turkeys.
Temple Doors was born to the Butterfly People.  At this time these people
controlled the tribal city-states south of Mexico City.
The hundreds of city-states of the Yucatán had been founded by Tribes of
many diverse groups and languages.  Each city-state had its Great Temple.
The Center Temple, or Great Temple, was everything to its people because it
held the distinction of "possessing the Name of the Divine."  This meant
that the Temple was known by the name of the Goddess and God of the
city-state.  Each Temple was the seat of the law, the university, the place
of records, the treasury, the place of information, the hospital, the war
academy, and the place of prayer.
At the time of the birth of Temple Doors, the Mayan city-states had been
in constant war with each other for nearly three hundred years.  The wars
had started in the aftermath of horrible earthquakes and exploding
volcanoes that had leveled hundreds of cities and Temples.
The Lords of the land were brutal men who would stop at nothing to get
their way.  The sacrifice priests taught these Feudal Lords that people
could be ruled only by fear.
The Lords, in their turn, taught that only the fang and the tooth of
experience were understood by "the common people," who were "incapable of
However, the Flower Soldiers taught that human sacrifice and slavery were
forbidden, and that every human possessed the natural right to have a Voice
in government.  Democracy-the Circle of Law-had been discovered by the Zero
Chiefs thousands of years before this time and was held to be Sacred by
every Flower Soldier.
By the time Temple Doors became the commander of the Flower Soldiers, she
violently opposed the sacrifice priests of the Temples and Lords who held
their people in perpetual slavery.  A bloody war ensued that lasted five
After yet another bitter struggle and more useless bloodshed, the
courageous Temple Doors decided to lead the Flower Soldiers and any of her
people who wanted to go with them, north into the "Land of the Wild
People."  In the new land, they could find Freedom and rebuild their
civilization based on the balance and teachings of the Medicine Wheels.
Temple Doors led twenty-four thousand people or more, overland, north out
from the Mayan peninsula, through the length of Mexico and into the
Southwest of the present-day United States.  On this great migration, she
fought and won many battles and helped her people survive every kind of
privation and disease.
Temple Doors was a Priestess and a General.  However, her most important
contribution to the world was the reordering and rebuilding of the
Discipline of the Flower Soldiers.
Temple Doors was a very important person in human history.  Volumes could
be written about her by the people of Mexico and we Northerners, and still
there would be more to say.  But time is needed before this will be done.
The Temple known as Desert Flower is the source of our information
concerning the early migrations to the North from the Yucatán.  This Temple
is now known as the ruins of Chaco Canyon.  The woman who began the
building of the Desert Flower was the Zero Chief Temple Doors.
The cities of Chaco Canyon and Canyon de Chelly were built by the people
who took on the name of their Chief, calling themselves the Temple Doors.
The sophisticated network of roads, cisterns, forts, Kivas, buildings,
farms, and pueblos were all built by the people of Temple Doors.

Temple Doors originally settled many of her armies and peoples at Canyon
de Chelly.  They began building immediately.  However, at this same time, a
dedicated group of highly disciplined and skilled Medicine Soldiers, with
their General, Temple Doors, began the construction of their Schools and
Temples at the Desert Flower in Chaco Canyon.  Her dream and the dream of
her apprentices was to build a new civilization based on the teaching of
the Medicine Wheels and the Circle of Law.  The Desert Flower was designed
to be their first main Center of Teaching and Healing.
The General lived for many years.  It is thought that she was over
eighty-three at the time of her death.
Hyemeyohsts Storm is the legendary and world renowned author and teacher who first introduced the knowledge of the Medicine Wheels to the modern world in his best selling classic Seven Arrows, published in 1972, and now in its 46th printing. He is a Northern Cheyenne and German mixed blood, who was born and raised on Indian reservations in Montana. In his latest book Lightningbolt, Storm continues to reveal for the first time new, compelling information of the Legacy of the Zero Chiefs and their Sacred Medicine Wheel Teachings.

Day Girl/Night pursuit of Clarity

I was recently introduced to the books of Penney Peirce........

and while perusing her website.......this concept popped up.........

Present Moment Practice

I serve my future self.

Let your "morning self" do something thoughtful for your "evening self" and let your "evening self" do something beneficial for tomorrow's "morning self."

I saw comedian Jerry Seinfeld on the David Letterman show late one night and he was giving a hilarious rundown about how he sabotages himself. He said that "Night Guy" likes to stay up late, party, drink a bit too much, and eat pizza. Then "Morning Guy" has to get up early to be at work and is exhausted, clogged up, and rushing around making lists and getting organized. Night Guy thinks Morning Guy is a wimp and Morning Guy thinks Night Guy is a jerk!

After Jerry's all-too-true description of our schizophrenic lives, I started to think of myself as Morning Girl and Night Girl, or Now Girl and Future Girl. Morning Girl often forgets to exercise and take the vitamins that Night Girl needs, and Night Girl sometimes forgets to brush her teeth or put her clothes in the hamper, which leaves Morning Girl feeling churlish. So I started pretending that Morning Girl was doing favors for Night Girl; she'd change the bedsheets or take a brisk walk. Night Girl would in turn wash the dishes and leave the sink clean. Morning Girl would make the phone calls and Night Girl would organize the piles by the phone. Now Girl helps Future Girl by always putting the car keys in the outside pocket of my purse or closing drawers after she opens them. When your day and night selves, your present and future selves, work for each other's good, eventually you'll know the real self, or soul, that underlies and fuels both.

Sound Healing.......

On Friday I joined some friends and learned a bit about Sound Healing.........

Remember being rocked as a baby by your Grandma or Mum?.......and the sound she 'hummed'?........perhaps not, you....but I do......and I say for my memory.......the only one who loved me in my young life was my Grandmother.......I can still feel her vibration......

So back to sounding......

Goodness..........all I can say it it's a 'good' all my meditations and healing work........this simple gesture took me to a place........I need to be......

I am blessed to know a circle of healing friends.....who make it a joy to venture into another realm.......

And to be exposed to the teachings of Jonathon Goldman.......and Tom Kenyon......

is a new step in my journey......

On Line Learning.......'s been awhile since I've reported 'present' here.  Truth is I have fallen victim to this long 'harder than usual' winter.  It thaws and snows and thaws and snows........and since the middle of February I have been drawn to some online summits and seminars that have been all encompassing, and completely engrossing.

I have been so completely captivated, the information coming so hard and fast, that I decided to just surrender to the process.  There were a series of Lectures by so called 'New Age' many with theories of breaking through our veils of consciousness (or unconsciousness)........all charging $97 or $197 or $997 for 'more' (I could not bear more) ......There were 'tapping' sites, and various energy healing CD's.......actually I became overwhelmed with the amount of information I was receiving....still persevering the 'self inflicted' onslaught.......certain there was a message I needed to hear in this barrage.

If you can't tell, I am very self reflective.......and I'm at the point in my life that I know something has to change......and still trying to figure out what.  Or perhaps something just has to be revealed. Or recognized.....or a deeper truth......and I'm sure I'm not alone given the numbers of people logged on to these lessons!

So this is what I am drawn to right now........some lessons with a guy who drives home the 'I AM' theory..........He believes, no KNOWS, that we create our reality by our 'being'.....and then our thinking.  So he says we need a really solid list of 'I AM's' to create the wonderful life we are meant to have.  For example..... I AM HAPPY,  I AM WEALTHY,  I AM JOY,  I AM LOVED,  I AM LOVE, I AM BRILLIANT, I AM LUCKY, I AM BLESSED, I AM LIVING ON A TROPICAL ISLAND.......he says to have a list of about 20 to 40 really good and detailed 'I AM's' and to feel them with's a little more involved than that.  This is not new to me....but I can always use a refresher course.........

I am also enrolled in a 7 week seminar with Jean Houston.........

and studying the Enneagram in addition to all of that......

Why this?  Why now?  No idea, just following my nose and...........rolling down the hill.........
