Solar Eclipse 2017 USA

On Monday, August 21, 2017, all of North America will be treated to an eclipse of the sun. This is one of nature’s most awe inspiring sites. The moon will completely cover the sun and the sun’s Corona. The path will stretch from Salem Oregon to Charleston South Carolina. Observers outside this path will see a partial eclipse where the moon covers part of the sun disk.

According to my friend who recently flew here from Europe, over 2000 eclipse enthusiasts will be hosting parties in local community centers, observatories, and parks and open fields.

This is the first time in US history, that a total solar eclipse that crosses the country from coast to coast will only be visible in America. It has been dubbed “The Great American Eclipse

The moon will completely block the sun, momentarily engulfing parts of about a dozen states in sudden darkness. The skies will darken and the air will get noticeably colder. Experts say it’s a visceral reaction. You feel something in the pit of your stomach, like something is not right. As the totality begins, the hairs may stand up on the back of your neck and arms. This sudden change still throws animals for a loop. Flowers close up like its night fall and birds tend to stop singing.

Oregon is expecting 1 million visitors worldwide to flock to the state to be the first in the country to see the total solar eclipse. Many of the hotels have been fully booked for four years. Oregon state parks and more than 1000 state camping sites have been fully booked as well.

NASA has issued safety warnings and the demand for solar eclipse glasses spikes. Also for those of you who won’t be able to travel, NASA is offering a live feed from NASA’s Marshall space flight Center. This live feed is an alternative for those experiencing less than optimal weather or light polluted skies. If you miss this event, you will have to wait until the next super moon eclipse in 2033.

Gargoyles

Gargoyle statues are meant to protect any dwelling from evil spirits. Gargoyle statues are widely used all over the world for decorative purposes as well as the belief that they repair all negative energy. Many churches, historic buildings, and cemeteries adorn gargoyles. Europe seems to favor them the most.

Within Paganism and Wicca, gargoyle statues are primarily used as a protection for the home and altar. Many Wiccans and Pagans tend to place the statues close to their altars to keep negative influences from contaminating their sacred space.

Originally gargoyle statues were carved by architects and used as water spouts to divert water from the buildings. In Medieval times they were used to ward off evil and act as guardians of the church to keep the terrible spirits of evil away and it was believed they were inspired from a written passage in the Bible.

Some believe they were inspired by the skeletal remains of ancient dinosaurs. Others believe they are representations of the deep rooted elements within human nature in men’s expression of subconscious fears or attempts to define or embody evils of the world into manageable elements.

Whatever their true origins, these awesome visual images have been with men for hundreds of years and they still seem to catch and inspire the imagination of modern society. They do indeed have a spirit of their own.

How to Visit a Vortex

Many people come to Sedona to experience the Vortex energy. Some feel it and some don’t. It all depends on how sensitive you are to the energy. It might take you getting into a relaxed and open frame of mind. Preparing yourself for the visit, may be a good idea to make your visit a memorable experience.

Spiritual preparation for visits to Sacred Places is a matter of personal preference. Devoting time and energy to a sacred place journey does have a payoff. We can actually create the experience we are seeking with a few simple guidelines. Try spending some time alone or with the guide or elder who is familiar with the energy of the particular site.

A shaman or medicine man takes time to prepare the body mind and spirit for ceremonies and journeys to sacred places. The purpose of the spiritual preparation is to amplify and to sustain the vibration of our being. The vibration and frequency we hold is a magnet attracting what we desire, so taking time to clear our energy field is essential. Meditating and fasting will help to clear our energy. Abstinence from alcohol and drugs is a must. The burning of sage and or tobacco can be helpful.

Silence opens us to higher thought and unlimited realms of information. Listening to the silence attunes us to what the stillness has to reveal. Close your eyes to eliminate visual data and distractions. Now concentrate on your inner focus by drawing your attention to the space slightly above and between your eyebrows. Breathe deeply and send out a vibration of love to everything and everyone around you. Move your focus from your head to your heart area. Now listen to the sounds of nature with your entire body. Listening will be cultivated through silence and meditation.

Our bodies are accurate sensing devices. Pay attention to any areas of tingling, stiffness, or chills. These are signals that you are connecting with the energy of the vortex. Ask to be shown and made aware of anything the site or you guardians want to share. Be receptive and stay open to what information is being present through your conscious thought. Opening the hands with the palms facing forward enables us to beam our energy out to the Universe and signals our willingness to receive.

These are just a few suggestions that may help you have a memorable vortex experience. Always leave the vortex with a feeling of gratitude, excitement and expectancy. Be respectful and thank the Universe for your experience and healing. Namaste.

Special Sedona Shamanic Retreat-4/28 to 4/30

Click here for more details:

Kuan Yin

kuan yin statue and blue sky“Bodhisattva” literally means “enlightened being”; a soul who, through compassion and altruism, has earned the right to leave this world of suffering and enter Nirvana (Paradise) but has chosen instead to stay on Earth to instruct others until all beings are enlightened.

Kuan Yin (Quan Yin or Kwan Yin) is known as one of the “four great Bodhisattva” of Buddhism and is adored throughout Asia as the Divine Mother we all long for: merciful, tender, compassionate, loving, protecting, caring, healing and wise. Along with Buddhism, Kuan Yin’s veneration was introduced into China as early as the 1St century CE and reached Japan by way of Korea soon after Buddhism was first introduced into that country in the mid-7th century.

She is “Mother Mary” in a white flowing robe usually wearing necklaces of Indian/Chinese royalty. Often she will be depicted holding the pearls of illumination. She may be carrying (The Lotus Sutra which refers back to her origins) or a water jar which symbolizes her pouring compassion onto the world. Other times, she might be holding a willow branch that is a symbol of being able to bend (or adapt) but not break or a sheaf of ripe rice or a bowl of rice seed as a metaphor for fertility and sustenance. She is often depicted as seated or standing on a lotus blossom which is one of the main symbols of Buddhist purity, since it is a beautiful flower that grows out of mud. The meaning is that our hearts should be pure like the lotus flower, even though our lives might be surrounded by dirty or impure people and situations.

Kuan Yin is actively worshipped by a vast following in the Far East –Taiwan, Japan, Korea and China, but there is also an implicit trust in Kuan Yin’s saving grace and healing powers in the West as well. She is the protector of women, sailors, merchants, craftsmen and those under criminal prosecution, and is invoked particularly by those desiring progeny. The “Kuan Yin Sutra” (25th chapter of the ancient Lotus Sutra) describes thirteen cases of impending disaster in which the devotee will be rescued if his thoughts dwell on the power of Kuan Yin, but many believe that even the simple recitation of her name will bring her instantly to the scene.

Kuan Yin’s goal is to liberate all beings from suffering, no matter who or what they are, and thus building a relationship with her involves little. There is no required ritual or dogma, merely an emulation of her virtues in your own life. These affirmations may be helpful:

– I forgive
– I radiate love
– I am tolerant of everyone around me
– I have great joy, and therefore great energy
– My peace is shared peace
– I am weightless and free of burden

Kuan Yin’s birthday is celebrated on the 19th day of the 2nd, 6th and 9th moons (count 19 days including the day of the new moon in these three months). A propitious mantra to repeat especially on these days is “I have compassion for myself and others every day of my life.”

The acknowledgement of Kuan Yin can help you release factors that inhibit you and prevent you from connecting with others; melt those walls of ice around your heart; forgive the person whom you feel has committed a grievance against you; open your heart and radiate love so that love can come back to you; and may even bring to you the child you so desire.

Kuan Yin Legends

There are many legends surrounding Kuan Yin. One story describes Kuan Yin as the daughter of a cruel father who wanted her to marry a wealthy but uncaring man. She is known as Miao Shan and her father’s realm Sumatra. Miao begged to be able to enter a temple and become a nun instead. Her father allowed her to work in the temple but asked the monks to give her very hard chores in order to discourage hr. The monks forced Kuan Yin to work all day and all night while others slept in order to finish her work. However, she was such a good person that the animals living around the temple began to help her with her chores. Her father, seeing this, became so frustrated that he attempted to burn down the temple. Miao Shan put out the fire with her bare hands and suffered no burns. Now struck with fear, her father ordered her to be put to death. After she died, she began the journey to heaven but as she was about to cross over into heaven, she heard a cry of suffering back on earth. She asked to be sent back and vowed to stay until all suffering had ended.

There are those who believe that Mother Theresa is the most recent embodiment of Kuan Yin.

Could There Be A Place in Arizona Even More Spiritual Than Sedona ?

Anita thinks there is. That place is Lake Powell. I have been going there for twenty years. Each time has been an amazing new adventure. I had my second out of body experience at Rainbow Bridge. I was transported to the top of the bridge and greeted by a Native American Chief, who told me I would be bringing many seekers here.

September is certainly the best time of year in Lake Powell. The tourists have left and the water is still warm. Hike, camp, fish and let’s not forget waterskiing. I personally don’t do any of those. I am here to connect with spirit and to seek my own slice of heaven. The desert is full of life and they say to catch a trout is a lucky omen.

Our boat is a Bravada Yacht, which was designed to meet the unique and discerning requirements of today’s Lake Powell boater. It provides more style and luxury than any boat on the lake. It’s deluxe Queen cabins and state of the art kitchen facilities are first class. We are fully stocked with all the comforts of home.

Lake Powell has more shoreline than the state of California and features 96 stunning side canyons that are all worthy of exploration. Get out and hike a canyon. You’ll be rewarded with the amazing scenery and surprises around every corner–wildlife, cool shaded pools and maybe some ruins or petroglyphs.

The high lite of your trip will be your connection to the amazing spirit energy that engulfs your senses and gives you a brief look of what lies beyond our earth plane. Come join us for an experience you will never forget. You’ll be enriched, enlightened and inspired.

Namaste day, Anita D.

Vortex Rocks Of Sedona

TowerTo explain the energy of The Vortex, you really have to think outside the box. There are books that explain the Scientific explanations such as,  the Ley lines of the earth cross and form a funnel of energy coming out of the earth. Rocks found at these spots seem to retain that energy.

Stones are a gift from the earth. They exist everywhere in Nature adding their color and beauty.  They have a way of appealing to people and sometimes it feels like they’re saying “pic me up.” I watch my 18 month old grand daughter squeal with glee as she pics up rocks in my store and even in the parking lot.

Millions of years ago ago layers of sandstone and limestone were formed by a receding ocean. Iron oxide eventually covered the grains and in a natural process rust formed. These are the beautiful rocks that make up Sedona.

RedRocks-03

Spiritual energy flows like thermal wind currents. You can see how this swirling energy twists the tree trunks at the Vortex sites. Those of us who are sensitive to  that energy will feel it more than others. That’s why Sedona attracts so many psychics and artists.

RedRocks-01

We have an sensitive artist person here in Sedona , who goes to the Vortices and collects the special energy stones. He then enhances them with interesting carvings and makes some into cairns. Prices range around $10 for a small piece you can hold in your hand,  Carins (the way showers) are $12-$15. There are some much larger pieces for $40.   Call our store for more information. 928-282-7220.

Pushing Yourself Too Hard Lately

ARAGONITE-300You might need ARAGONITE.  This beautiful “sputnik shaped crystal is a sparkling copper color much like the rocks of Sedona. It’s a very reliable grounding stone attuned to the Earth Goddess. It has the ability to center and ground physical energies. It’s very useful in times of stress.

Aragonite stabilizes the base and earth chakras. It can teach you patience and facilitates delegating and a pragmatic approach to life.  It helps one to concentrate on the matter at hand and gives insight into the causes of problems and situations. It calms the emotional body and combats anger and emotional stress. Good for meditation it helps raise your vibration to a high spiritual level.

Aragonite brings warm energy into the body and treats cold and chills. It also aids in calcium absorption. It’s useful for healing bones.  It can restore elasticity to discs. While it helps strengthen the immune system, it also helps regulate processes that are happening too fast.

It’s a great stone for holding in the hand for comfort. It can be placed over areas of the body needing healing. Place under your pillow to combat restlessness at night. It can come in other colors such as white, yellow and gold. I find the copper color to be the most attractive.
ARAGONITE-558
The Center has a small selection of ARAGONITE. Pieces range from as little as $15 to a large chunk for $135. Call Annie at 928-282-7220 or send us an Email.

Keeping Your Energy Up

Angelic Message of the Week

Many spiritual persons are telling me that they are experiencing unusual fatigue of late.  I asked the angels about this and was told that there are two reasons for that.

One is that persons on a spiritual path are experiencing a rising in their vibrations.  This is necessary both to continue moving forward, and to survive on a planet whose vibrations are also rising.   Allow yourself to nap if you need it, and can do so.  Go to bed earlier, to ensure your body gets the extra rest it needs right now.

The other reason for this fatigue is the increase in dark energy attacks on persons of light.  Just as there are people who are light and good, there are people who are dark and have turned their back to good.  They will be attracted to your light, and will want to affect you in a negative way so you cannot help others the way your heart wants to.  Again, extra rest will go a long way to helping you.

The angels say that if your fatigue continues, see a healer to assist you with getting your energy back.  This is a temporary situation and there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Living More Simply

Angelic Message of the Week

Do not be afraid to pare down your life.  The angels say that this pertains to possessions, expenses, and time commitments.  This is not the time to continue pursuing more, just to have more.  Pull yourself out of that old way of thinking and enter this current time of living more simply.

This need not be a chore.  Take this process one step at a time.  Make this sacred time where you are consciously putting your life in order by eliminating all that is unnecessary and leaving only that which regularly serves you in a positive way.

Donate or sell things you don’t, or can’t, use.  Cancel services that are not critical to your life.  The angels say that this portion of the clearing will help you free up more money, giving you greater peace of mind.  Lastly, refrain from committing your most precious resource, time, when you really don’t want to.  This is the time to create a more simple, less stressful life so you can move forward spiritually.
