What a day!

I received the following story from my dear friend, Margaret, and I am sharing it here with her permission
This will knock your socks off... On Friday John (my husband) and I went to a place called Long Beach on the west side of Vancouver Island. I love to go there as I find it a very spiritual place, the Pacific Ocean, old growth forest, whales and eagles. We parked our beach chairs and John decided to go back to the car for the sunshade. While he was gone I started to connect with the spirits, calling in the spirit of the ocean, wind, forest and air and Mother Earth. I asked for a healing for myself... I started to vibrate and thought "Oh no, I'm going to get whammed  with energy"...problem was, the chair was vibrating as well. I checked the beach and the shells and seaweed were still but my chair kept rocking and rolling. I spotted John and screamed at him to sit down. When he did, he could feel the shaking as well. We were experiencing what turned out to be a 6.4 earthquake. John couldn't feel it when he was walking on the soft sand. The shaking went on for over a minute, then calmed and then started again but not as strong. John started to panic a bit as we were in a tsunami evacuation area. I told him we would be Ok. I then sat on the sand, drew my symbols over the earth and gave a Reiki treatment to the earth. The Earth energy coming into my root chakra was very strong. I told John what I had been doing (calling on the spirits) immediately before the tremors and his reaction was, "You must have dialed the wrong number!"
When things settled down, we both went down to the ocean to get our feet wet. A wave came straight towards us, not very high but rushing towards us like it was on a mission with a message..."you're back" it told me.
Moral of the story...be careful what you ask for.

What's Up With The New Zodiac?

The constellation of Ophiuchus has always been there, it did not suddenly appear! Every Astrologer, as well as, every Astronomer already knows this, and interestingly enough, so does everyone else now thanks to the media blitz which has falsely turned it into the 13th sign.

The best explanation I have received in my Astrological Circle has been from John Halloran. He has given permission to quote it here. Thank you John.
"Western astrologers became dissatisfied with the sidereal zodiac of the constellations by the 5th century CE, and switched
to the tropical zodiac that astrologers in the West have used ever since. The tropical zodiac coincided with the constellations in the year 221 CE.  It took a couple of centuries, but astrologers did figure out that planets, signs, and charts should be measured from the equinox, not from a particular star.
Western astrology starts the signs from the north or ascending node of intersection between the ecliptic and the celestial equator, the zero Aries or equinox point. Nodes are the intersections between planes and have always been important points in astrology.  The resulting ecliptic hemispheres are then divided into the four quadrants and each quadrant has a beginning space, a middle space, and an end space, just like life.  These are the signs of Western astrology.  They are mathematically and geometrically elegant, as opposed to the irregular groupings of stars known as the constellations, which is what the Minnesota astronomer and media talking heads are ultimately referring to."
I believe there is really more going on here than meets the eye. Yes, I am certainly intrigued by how it seems to be affecting everyone, even my "not really interested in astrology" husband is reading about it on his iphone! It has sparked a new interest in Astrology and a new door has opened to new possibilities. It's all very interesting to say the least, but as for me I will continue using the Tropical and Sidereal Zodiacs as I have always done. Rick Levine sums it up quite well, "...it's not a sign, it's a constellation." Enough said...let's move on.

The Gift of Golden Light

I was studying 'Light Touch Therapy' with Susan Schwartz at Star Mountain Center in Denver, Colorado. It was a magical place, with a crystal room for ceremony, meditation, shamanic journeying, among other things. Each person was cleansed with sage smoke before entering and then proceeding in a clockwise pattern only. There was an amazing copper room. The walls, ceiling and floor covered in sheets of copper. I could feel the electrifying energy and it seemed to intensify the healing energy. 

It was actually in the crystal room during a meditation when I had a vision of Golden Light. I had been given an Atlanteen crystal to hold during the meditation and I could see myself standing with my arms spread open wide as I looked to the heavens, with this wonderful Golden Light streaming down from above and entering my crown chakra and filling my body. After the meditation, it was the custom to go around the room with each person sharing their experience but only if they chose to. At the time I chose not to because I have found that with new information, it takes a few days to fully integrate it into my awareness. I did not realize how significant an event this was until later, but it changed my life, and I have been using this wonderful, warming Golden Light in my healing practice ever since. 



Proverbial First Blog

Here in the now, in my illusion of reality, I am writing in gratitude as I walk my healing path of gratitude. My lesson is to embrace my fears and to share what I have learned, and as I do I am healing and growing. Ah, yes, I still have so much more to do, and so I begin here at Gold'n Light Healing.

I have learned that change is the only thing I can count on. It is the only constant. I know that it’s not the choices that I’ve made, but the reason I've made those choices that’s really important. I have always questioned everything…it allows me to continue to learn and most importantly, not to believe everything I am told. How can I ever know the truth if I don’t ask questions? So, I continue to ask why, or how or really?
I am at peace, and I am no longer afraid of what the future has in store for me. My path has been a difficult one, filled with many obstacles, physical and emotional pain, loss, loneliness, heartbreak to name a few; but now I am so much stronger and wiser, and I know what I have to do. It's all becoming so clear to me. I am ready, and I am letting go....of the outcome, because it really will be okay.

And so, my journey begins...please join me as I write about my adventures in healing. Thanks for stopping by Gold'n Light!
