The Perils and Opportunities of the Big ‘Interrupt’
The stories of our experience of what the year 2020 means to each of us will probably be as manyfold as there are people:
But what all of them have in common is that 2020 changed the world as we knew it into something completely different and our lives with it. Some of us will experience the world and lives having been put on pause, the great ‘interrupt’ of the ‘normal’ we knew….
My own experience of this last year has been multileveled, from extremely positive to quite alarming.
When everything stopped and we could no longer continue the workshop journeys we had organized and travel plans came to a halt, there was the sense that ‘now is the time’ to put things into action that I had been dreaming of for years but had not acted on because I was always in movement or planning the next journey ….
So when the movement stopped, it was a great opportunity to say. Now act on your dream! For me that was about moving onto land that I can grow roots, do the work I am called to do in co-creation with Nature, have people come to us, have a loose community of like minded people nearby and be part of a movement to revitalize soil, land, bodies, ways of living with Earth in co-creation with Nature. I acted upon this and found it. This journey I share here…
Parallel to this story of finding and creating home, community and wellbeing is another one that also wants to be shared as my observation and experience as one who does not listen to mainstream media, only keeping track of it now and then:
In March 2020 when covid was announced by the WHO, I knew I needed to be in Portugal to be in Nature, to be with the bees…. And while I had the priviledge to be immersed in the incredible energy of spring with my bee family, I was watching carefully as to what was happening while being grounded in Nature….
Towards the middle of march I was guided to look at the UK government website, where I saw with my own eyes that the UK health council had officially downgraded the C virus from a pandemic to a non dangerous virus. Others said they saw the same downgrade on the WHO website. The very next day lockdowns were announced and imposed all over Europe!
Alarm bells and huge questions appeared in my mind and I kept on watching carefully. Who beyond individual governments was giving those lockdown commands? I heard government officials saying one thing that seemed quite logical one day, and the next day do a complete turnaround (as if they had received orders from elsewhere…. Worldwide)
I saw many doctors, scientists and lawers from many countries speak out and ask questions about the approach to the virus and the measures imposed – suggesting other much more sensible solutions based on the science and facts available…. and I witnessed how they were not welcomed into a sensible debate – exploring the different options and possibilities, which I would have expected within a democratic system. Instead I saw one by one of these independent professionals being deplatformed, defamed, having their licenses and their jobs taken away, being threatened, their messages twisted and spun, being called ‘conspiracy theorists’ disseminating disinformation……..
Wow! Why would the professional expertise, wealth of knowhow, common sense contributions and creative inputs not be invited or even allowed?
Why do any independent voices need to be suppressed with such force, determination and brutality?
What is going on behind the scenes beyond national governments who seemed to all be coerced into taking the same stance and approach?
More alarm bells, more questions!
This reminded me of warfare, extreme censorship and a propaganda machine similar to that of the third Reich, totally and systematically undermining free speech, freedom of choice along with the loss of freedom of movement and the erosion of all civil rights regards taking responsibility for ones own health and wellbeing and conducting of one’s own business, moving freely and being sovereign regards ones own body.
There were voices pointing out the parallel of medical tyranny in the Third Reich with what was happening now on a worldwide basis, pointing out that Goebels had said: if you wish to control a people and get their obedience, keep them in fear for a minimum of 3 months…..
And Hitler is known to have said: ‘Create a lie so large that nobody could believe its not true’
So what is happening now – this time worldwide?
I had to ask, who runs the media of the mainstream, which all over the world seemed to say the same thing, creating a narrative and propaganda that couldn’t be contradicted or questioned without serious consequence?
This to me looked like a worldwide dictatorship take over.
How come people who have no background in health are dictating policies to do with health?
I learnt that only a handful of corporations own most main media outlets all over the world.
Wow, so who do the media work for and serve?
These seem to include big tech companies owning and controlling data and platforms of communication, the banking sector as well as those heavily invested in pharmaceuticals – namely ‘vac cines’ and have invested billions into their development and production way in advance of the so called ‘pandemic’.
I learnt that a pandemic trial run had been staged in October 2019 – ‘Event 201’…..
While I am seeing governments all over world are lying, bullying, acting unlawfully and undemocratic, I am witnessing mind control being applied to populations all across the globe, people – just trying to survive or still believing that governments are acting in the best interest of the people and of all – are being lulled into the narrative as if into a hypnosis in the hope that we will get ‘back to normal’ soon by taking jabs. As if that was ‘the magic pill’.
While there is no mention of how we can improve health, resilience and wellbeing – in fact these voices are discouraged, as they would also point out that masks, lockdowns and social distancing are detrimental for health and wellbeing and that the deaths, illness, and destruction caused by the so called ‘measures to combat and control the virus’ are way higher than the threat of the virus itself.
The narrative seems to move us towards the mass injections taking place right now that include tracking possibilites able to have all our data digitally readable ….. a v.. passport that everyone has to have in order to get services, travel, have access to digital money and a total economic Reset, called ‘The Great Reset – where ‘you will own nothing and you will be happy’….. an amazingly sophisticated digitalized AI (Artificial Intelligence) surveillance society… surpassing even what Orwell predicted. This is all available information. https://sociable.co/government-and-policy/timeline-great-reset-agenda-event-201-pandemic-2020/
(Updates end of Feb: I found that it is no longer possible to find searches on google that are not ‘approved by the establishment’. Websites and organization with differing views are all shadowbanned. The so called ‘fact-checkers’ are backed by big tech to only confirm the approved narrative and discredit all other voices. If you wish to find alternative voices search through duckduckgo
There have been Court rulings like the one here in Portugal: https://geopolitic.org/2020/11/21/portuguese-court-rules-pcr-tests-unreliable-quarantines-unlawful/, but worryingly these have not changed government policies or been spoken about in the media)
We often say: Follow the money. Who is benefitting from what is happening and what is their agenda?
Who benefits from most small businesses going bankrupt or going online?
And who benefits of even governments going bankrupt?
If you are interested, have a look at the interesting assessment from someone who has worked deep within the urban development, banking and financial systems, tracking large governmental and corporate money movements in terms of what she sees playing out: Catherine Austin Fitts Full Interview Planet Lockdown
In the words of Catherine herself, I only share this because transparency can change it and assist us to make more informed choices to be a part of this transformation.
Is the picture she reveals where we wish to go?
So what actions do we each need to take to change this trajectory to something completely different?
A different Possibility
The amazing thing is that there is so much else happening beneath the surface, within people, in the Earth, in the Solar system and in the evolution of consciousness. This is an incredible window in time!
Even though it looks very bleak right now, I know there is a whole different possibility:
So what is required for each of us to access our deeper knowing that is connected with the Earth, that is aligned with the Laws of Nature and our own Source of Knowing?
What does it take for us to stop listening to the media, stop aligning ourselves with anything that creates harm, but instead go with what feels right and true for each of us deep within our knowing, not from the cloud of fear, confusion and hypnosis?

A Spiritual Quantum leap opportunity
For those wishing to see and work with the spiritual and vibrational possibilities of this incredible time read on:
The events of this past year are literally breaking down all our known ways of being, causing us to stop, evaluate and look at what of the past we would like to bring forward. What new systems want to be created that are life affirming, life sustaining, maintaining and creative in total alignment with who we wish to become and evolve into in this next expression of civilization?
Can we use this ‘interrupt’ to remember what is of essence, and what would we really like to see and create as our future with and on this planet? Not a future dictated by corporations and total surveillance, but a future of thrival in complete alignment with the laws of nature, the flow of life force in co-creation with the elements and the Earth.
There is the invitation to becoming creators of the Future from a place of alignment with what truly arises from within each of us as impulses from our inner being wishing to create more life, wellbeing and thrival for all.
Are we being squeezed and pushed to come out of our cocoons into a greater expression of life?
Here are some people and organiazations that are taking incredibly beautiful creative steps towards creating a world where we can thrive in alignment with Natural Law and Earth wisdom.
I love these brave people’s vision of our emergence into our greater selves through facing the shadow and awakening within the dream: Into the Christed Light
Can we change the dream we are in to dream a future of beauty and wellbeing?
Years ago I heard John Perkins in ‘Confessions of an Economic hitman’ convey the message of the shamans from the cultures he had assisted to be destroyed: They asked him to assist us, in our so called ‘civilized’ culture, to change the dream we are collectively dreaming from a ‘dream of consumption’ to a ‘dream of creation of life’
It seems that now is the time to actively change our dream.
Having had this interruption of normality as we knew it, what can we dream into being?
And what are we each called to do and be?
What frequencies can we align with that bring about the change and the future we are truly desiring?
What choices can we make each day that align with life and the laws of nature?
And where do we need to unplug from institutions and narratives that cause harm, division and destruction?
Each day we are faced with these choices.
This is an extraordinary time!
The frequencies of evolution of consciousness available at this time are vast!
Is that why at the same time there is an equal force trying to stop this evolution?
I still see the image of the caterpillar who lives on the principle of consuming as much as possible. When the phase of the caterpillar comes to an end there is a cocoon stage. In this cocoon stage the structure of the body as it was known is falling apart but for a while there is a fight between the cells of the old form and those of the new form. Only when enough energy gathers to support the frequency of the new form of the butterfly emanated by the imaginal cells– can it begin to emerge….
Are we currently in the cocoon? – literally cocooned in our houses?
To focus our life energy on the emanation of something completely new?
A way of Being here on the planet that we have not yet known before?
An expression of who we truly are way beyond what we have been in the previous expression of our societies and cultures?
Is this a time to focus our vital and dream energy on the emergence of a Future that is based on togetherness, love, peace and thrival of all….?
I would like to leave you with a Sound-weaving to assist and inspire this Dreaming and Creating of a different Future:
Many Years ago I read a book called ‘The robes’ – a book of the coming changes” by Penny Kelly, that deeply affected my life and my life choices to this day. Following a kundalini awakening Penny’s psychic capacities were opened and she met beings in long brown robes who she called ‘robes’ who showed up in her room wishing to show her images of the Future to assist her and all of us alive on the planet right now to grow into the task we came here for.
This book was written to navigate these times. I recommend it to anyone as a compelling read for right now! https://pennykelly.wordpress.com/my-books/robes/
And there are many more…..
We recently started a permaculture design course – realizing that the ethics of Premaculture express totally what we are aiming for: Care for Earth and people in a sustainable biodiverse resilient way – giving back more than we have taken!
It offers small and large scale practical solutions to food and resilience, draughts, floods , deserts, erosion and all imbalances caused by modern chemical based agriculture and industrialization through local and large scale water and soil management – creating biodiverse landscapes and habitats for all species in co-creation with Nature.

Regards the changes in the whole Solar System, I would like to point to an article by Rory Duff who has extensively researched the Geobiology of Earth energy lines and has found dramatic changes occurring since 2017. Various Earth energy lines have expanded since 2017 and the rhythm of their individual frequencies coming into synchronized harmony with each other are extending to longer and longer periods of time. This relates to our position in the solar system, the photonbelt e.t.c., His research extrapolates that the cocoon stage of this transformation we are in will last until 2024 when all earth energy lines might join together into one coherent harmonic field.
We had been looking for a long time for a place that would offer a different way of life; a way of life with land closer to the rhythms of nature, the Earth, the seasons, where we could live more rooted within our own beings and the Earth.
For many years we’ve been travellers – going out from our small base in the UK – taking our work to many places across the UK, Ireland and Europe and loving the life of the bards and tinkers who would always find amazing places to work with and explore, stay with beautiful people, meet new friends, enjoy each moment to the full, give our gifts and receive the gifts of the place and its people and move on again.
I had been a travelling bard for two decades, the first decade impulsed by the island of Iona, where the Nature spirits of the land invited me to sing the songs and share the music I was receiving and co-creating with Nature and the Universe.
This resulted in powerful journeys written about elsewhere… https://peace-trails.com/about, journeys with sound to the Americas – both north and south with incredible experiences of transformation and opening, Ireland, Bosnia, Malta,
In the second decade I was joined by Heather and we both wove the sound and music as vibrational fields of possibility, alignment and change together in many places around the globe. We also became metal-smiths – makers of metal instruments through the alchemical process of the forge in co-creation with the elements – giving form and body to these vibrational fields we had learnt to weave/ create. For many years it was an adventure and great pleasure to travel with this work to many places, journeys often too wild and amazing to put into words.
We knew that a time would come where we wanted to root and move into a different mode of being. Where being with land in one place would build a field from where new vibrations that came through us would pulse out – Creating a hub in co-creation with the land through weaving sound and forging metal instruments in our Studio of Sound Alchemy.
We had been looking for a number of years – in Scotland, Ireland, England, Check Republic and beyond – had begun a few explorations.
In 2019 we had our first invitations to Portugal…. Several arrived at the same time.
Port u g(r)al – the door of the grail, the grail being an ancient symbol of the overflowing ever replenishing cup of plenty, that nourishes and heals.
What mystery and promise is held in this land that carries the name of being the door to this well of nourishment?
As we travelled in 2019 with Sarah and Peter Dawkins who have tracked and worked with many of the energetic landscape temples of Europe, we learnt that Portugal carries a vital role and landscape temple connected to the whole. It has been told of old that ‘heaven on Earth’ can be seeded in this land. The Templars worked with this vision. Peter Dawkins tracked an energetic gold and a silver pillar framing the Eastern and western borders of Portugal – the gold pillar tracing the western coast on the atlantic ocean and silver pillar tracing the eastern boarder to Spain, while in the centre lies the rose pillar of the heart.
Having worked deeply with gold and silver over the last years, we were not surprised to find ourselves called by a land that represented both and brought them together in the central rose alchemy.
Some of our work with copper, silver and gold has taken us into a deeply alchemical journey that we sense as an ancient lineage bringing wisdom forward as the copper rose gold alchemy.
We have since discovered that Portugal has drawn many many people from all over Europe and the world for the reason of reconnecting more deeply with Earth, to find different ways of relating and living with this beautiful planet and contribute to a renewal of wellbeing for Earth, people and all beings.
We find ourselves amongst so many whose burning desire is to establish more connected ways of living with Earth and Self.
Many small and some larger projects working with and towards re-generating and re-wilding impulses, … the land has called many who are taking their places.
The bees are playing a major part in the connection and interconnection, awakening and weaving of these fields of creation. As the weavers and maintainers of the integrity and health of the energy fields of land and all who live there, the bees are our teachers and co-creators …
Many people have been brought together by the bees! In fact it is the bees that called us to return to Portugal again, stay for longer and connect more deeply with all that is available through here:
Our move was accelerated by the experience of lockdown in spring 2020.
I found myself in Southern Portugal learning from and with bees in a small group who were learning together – whilst caring for bee colonies on many lands and projects in an intimate and sustainable way. https://peace-trails.com/category/alentejo-bee-journals-spring-2020
My experience was that of being completely embedded in community and nature, while Heather and my friends in England had very different experiences – often in isolation. I noticed at the time that those around me who were very clear as to what they were inviting for their next steps had the Universe helping them! Synchronicities were assisting them fast and clear – bringing everything towards them to make those steps, whilst the rest of us were also supported but not with such immense clarity.
I realized that I didn’t have enough clarity as to my/our next step and that it was time to gain that clarity; to make choices and put a stake in the ground. The time was now! I considered whether the Alentejo area of Southern Portugal would be a good place to move to but was discouraged by the increasing desertification and heat. As spring moved into summer at the beginning of june, the rains ceased and the heat increased– the land turned from a beautiful green and spring flower paradise into a burnt dust desert, which lasts several summer months with intense heat until the rains return in October.
There was an invitation waiting for us in central Portugal, which now came into focus.
We had met the Vale das Lobas Project in 2010, made a deep connection and only returned in 2019 – 9 years later. Many people had come and left over the past 9 years, many beautiful and difficult times had been played out and the project was moving in a new direction – having received several grants from ‘rewilding Europe’ for the bio-diversity work and others to restore some of the beautiful old buildings. We received an invitation to associate ourselves with the project and offer some of our work through the project while also being independent and evolving our own project in conjunction…
I made my way to central Portugal in the middle of june 2020 accompanied by my bee friends – moving together with 2 beehives who were also moving north together with their bee guardian who had been my bee teacher.
I landed in the area, first staying a few weeks with bee friends with another rewilding initiative on 10 ha land – camping out under the stars.
The landing was sweet – being welcomed into an area of beautiful interconnectedness… Sleeping under the stars – (under a moskito-net) assisted me to land….
I helped with the tasks of the land – cutting, stripping and stacking wood….
– Rental properties are not that easy to come by we found out, but through some beautiful synchronicites and the assistance of new friends and local angels we found a beautiful house with a little land in the neighbouring village to Vale das Lobas.
Our move was fairly fast. I knew we had to move in the months between lockdowns – not sure when the autumn lockdowns would strike and whether it would include more border closings….so we moved quickly with only a month to pack, organize the letting of the house, the move e.t.c.
Arriving in our stonehouse of solid granite, built on and into the granite bedrock, it took some time to ‘just be’.
While still unpacking we made vegetable beds for planting winter vegetables, as we learnt that as soon as the rains starts – this year early in mid September – a second growing season kicks in with the warmth that is stored in the rock from the heat of the summer. We started a compost and began learning about soil in this climate where everything dries out for several months in the summer and wakes up again in the autumn for a second growing season, which feels like northern European spring.
Now – several months into this landing – we are still surprised by the welcome and generosity of the land and the people.
We are beginning to allow ourselves to be changed….
Slowing down and listening…
At first we tried to just keep going the way we have done….
And then we noticed that what was around us was inviting us to drop into a different space of being…
Where we spend times in silence, where we listen to the birds and sense the vibration of the rock and the landscape…. The olive groves that surround us.
The olives create a particular atmosphere. The silver green leaves reflecting the light in ways that has a silver green sheen – enlivening and mysterious.
The generosity of the land and its people is such that in the beginning nearly every other day someone from the village shared a little something from their harvest with us or shows us plants to grow.
The fig tree in the small public square near the house gave ample fruit for 3 full months and then there were persimmon fruit around the village, while walnuts and chestnuts are being harvested at end of October. End of November into early December was olive harvest – those beautiful silvery beings giving of their fruit in ways that doesn’t allow them to be eaten immediately but they require engagements – either curing the fruit in brine for several months or pressing it for their generous oil….
Since then the citrus fruit have been providing us with winter fruit: a tiny clementine tree behind our house provides beautiful delicious clementines, a lemon and orange tree in the neighbour’s garden are sharing fruit to the hearts delight….we are looking forward to whats next?

Blessings on this New Moon 15th November 2020
I am writing to you from our new home in the Portugese ‘mountains of the stars’ from where we receive the Dreaming of the Future;
Our experience of living here on the edge of a Portuguese village and slowly being welcomed by more and more of the villagers, we find ourselves surrounded by incredible generosity… Every few day someone shares some of their produce and harvest with us… its as if they are just happy to share… and a couple of days ago we received some goats milk from the family who has the one village goat. I made my first fresh goats cheese.
Abundance of Earth and community seems to be such a known template here from where we can regenerate and seed new realities……
We are moving through the most incredible times – with everything we knew as stable unravelling before our eyes – or behind the scenes – the world as we knew it is crumbling: ‘Everything is the opposite of what it appears to be…’
So much is being stripped, let go, purified…..
And now who are we and who can we be to be a part of the co-creation of a Future yet unknown to be birthed from the rubble of a past that no longer supports us.
What we are experiencing here in our new home that we landed in, is an incredible stillness and peace within Nature – even though we can also see and perceive the imbalances through hundreds of years of unbalanced cultivation and are being pulled to start working with the soil microorganisms starting from the ground up.
Our friends with the many rewilding projects in the area are noticing that as they are allowing the pine monoculture to die and be taken out, new young forests are emerging, many of the seeds have been in the ground waiting…. oaks chestnuts, hawthorn and many many others… are re-emerging and the humans tune in to add to the variety for the expansion of diversity and wellbeing….
So many the seeds for a new way of being are here…. waiting for their time when there is space for them to unfold…. and we are invited to add to them from our Dreaming and Perceiving of the Future….Meanwhile we are asked to energise the timeline of the greatest Future through our vibration and alignment….
Today’s supermoon when Uranus and Pluto are bringing up from the deep many things that at some point might have seemed stable and ‘a fact of life’ are now being questioned…….
The purification/ releasing is happening all around us and within us. Many are being stripped to the core….. and what an opportunity to reconnect to ‘Essence’ – what is it we can be when we vibrate and function from our core essence – aligned with our own connection to Source independent of any outer circumstances……
What is the True Vibration we can bring forward and create from at this time?
Holding a vibration that allows something completely beyond our Knowing to be emerging from a new place of alignment that arises from the gold frequency of togetherness….
What can our daily actions be to allow this to be birthed?
This soundwand is the first one to have been cocreated with the granite rocks of this land that our house is made out of – the crystal in the rock literally amplifying and empowering the sound vibrations: We were nearly blown away by our first sound experience in this house, sending the stones coming alive and joining their energies.
Allow this soundwand to assist you with the stripping/ releasing to Core Essence from where you align with your tone that rings true and you carry a frequency that co-creates with the gold frequency and all those who are also aligning with their core essence to create a Future beyond the dissolution that has a way higher vibration than what we have seen here on this planet for a long long time!!!!!
Let the gold and silver assist in the new calibration
Sending you so many abundant blessings to see you through this next cycle of change….
Huge love and gratitude to each of you for being here at this time and co-creating the frequencies for a Future of Togetherness, Love and Joy

Deeply challenging and transformational – asking us to be and create from our full potency and sovereignty!
We have gone through a big transformation ourselves – moving our lives to Portugal – following a deep calling…
Its been a bit of a whirlwind until we landed here and were invited to slow down to the rhythm of the land.
As you read this we invite you to slow down, drop and receive the frequency download ot this land and place and the energy that is transmitted from here from the ancient keepers of the peace.
We are now writing from our new home in the Portugese Mountains of the Stars (Serra Estrella) from where we are receiving and co-creating the Dreaming of the Future;
… From our windows we overlook a valley full of olive groves growing in smallholding plots or quintas as well as some woodland and the nearby hills and mountains. There are certain times of day that bring light qualities highlighting the many silken threads being woven by spiders and insects as though playing trapeze from one to the other.
Sitting out amongst the olive trees on the granite rocks in the stillness – mostly with just the sound of the birds – we are becoming more keenly aware of the vibration of the land, the rock, the air … Now and then a car passes, it could be the daily padaria, or baker, as he toots his horn in warning that he can stop and deliver pastel, bolo or fresh bread or it may be a machine noise such as a tractor. There are very few sound ‘disturbances’ and we are much removed from the ever present psychic din of more populated areas of our recent years.
Living here on the edge of a village and slowly being welcomed by more and more of the villagers is one of incredible abundance and generosity…
There is a large fig tree planted by one of the public water taps just next to our house. It provides a community meeting space in the summer months with the locals meeting up at cooler times of the day to chat and exchange greetings and news. The tree carries the very essence of abundance and community as it so generously gifts its delicious green fruit from early August until the very end of October. Everyone knows that the tree belongs to no-one and everyone. It is cared for by all and maintained by the municipal as a tree that bears fruit for visitors and residents alike. A few weeks ago the eldest of the village told us that he planted this tree when he was a little boy.
Wow! We were struck with the loving impact of their shared longevity, vitality and generosity. . . touched and so grateful to him for this legacy of abundance. He is now 94 and still working his farm, his quinta daily, with chickens, large vegetable plot, olive and fruit groves… Sometimes walking by on foot with a hoe over his shoulder and other times driving up and down the road on his little orange tractor accompanied by his beautiful black and white dog. Last week he stopped by to hand us a bag of freshly harvested persimmons, or caqui fruit and a few days ago he left a whole bucket of potatoes, onions and eggs freshly laid on our front doorstep.
Most of the villagers have their plots and gardens around the village and work in them nearly every day at a slow easy pace in tune with the seasons. One family has a mother goat with many young ones born a couple of months ago. Just last week we received our first batch of goats milk as the young ones no longer need as much and our first batch of queijo de cabra fresco was ready within hours of the warm milk being freshly delivered! Some has been given to our kefir and we have held onto a little just for drinking … It’s so incredibly delicious – light, creamy, and gifted…
We are in the region of the chestnut and after several years in which there was no harvest due to immense fires, we were able to join in and help with the harvest a few weeks ago. This is a really special festival where the castagna shows itself as a master food ingredient! One day of harvesting ended with a three course feast and a samhain night walk for the children to follow! We were totally exhausted and exhilarated at the same time … It’s quite something to learn what a gift this mighty tree is. For many years the chestnut was the staple carbohydrate of the region … no patates …
And now we are being lured and lulled and called and beckoned by our awareness of the olive coming into its fullness. Harvest has been gently swinging for the past few weeks. The olive is an incredible tree, like a life pulse and agent of peace it surrounds us on all sides. The constancy of stillness and light and essential well being that emanates through these groves is an enormous contribution to us both … to our being. Experiments with the first jars of curing olives have begun and this week we delivered a small sack of aceitanas to the local cold pressing mill ‘lagar!’ Dos litros (two litres) of the finest local liquid gold will be extracted over the next couple of days!
For weeks It seemed that every few days someone from the village arrived at our door to deliver or share some of their produce and harvest with us… as if they are just happy to share…the very basis of being and having is that there is plenty to share. We have landed in an environment that knows the abundance of Earth.
Although our language skills are very elementary we are warmed by an intrinsic naturalness in the sense of community, as though it is a known template and from where we can regenerate and seed new realities…
Our search to find a rental house back in July brought us to this village – on the slope between the higher plateaux and the river valley. We chose this old granite house on the edge of this small mountain village as it seems to provide us with much that we have been asking for – beautiful views to all sides on the edge of the village, a walled courtyard with an area for some garden along with a roofed space for the forge, a small piece of land across the road with some olive trees and space for vegetable beds and a possible sound space in the lower cellar that is partially hewn into the bedrock. We call it the sound cave … our very own caverna da som! With a little bit of conversion and insulation we will have a space where sound is co-created with the granite rock of these mountains – amplified by the crystals within the rock which seem to come alive and awake and contribute hugely to whatever is created and broadcast from here.
The forge has its space in the courtyard barn and many new bells and bowls have been asking to be created from here.
The new instruments that are coming in seem to be bringing new vibrational qualities … more easily accessed perhaps with this incredible energetic support from Nature, Earth, Rock, People and Stars. Each of the new instruments carry the vibration of a Future of Thrival and Abundance with the sense of being able to accelerate and facilitate a new alignment for us humans with our Source and Essence as so much is being stripped away in the outer world. With much of what we knew to be our known reality crumbling, dismantling and changing before our eyes and behind the scenes it’s a joy to be having access to these high and finer frequencies through the transformation of metal
Some of the new commissioned bowls that have been created during these months are incredible beings of transformation and potency. They seem to tap into the energies of change currently available in the field – directing potent swirling energy with the awakening tones that wish to
allow a sonic contribution as a recognition of our infinite potential and potency to co-create with Earth in a totally new way.

These new instruments awaken the Dreamer within us, the Dreamer who can Dream the world into a new way of being in harmony with all that is.
They awaken the Sovereign within us who is vibrating at the level of the gold frequency, where we live, think and act from the space of We, the knowing of togetherness, interconnectedness and Wholeness.
They awaken us into who we truly are in our Essence and full Potency – sounding and creating from our true tone and its expression in the world –creating a Future timeline that allows a thriving Earth beyond our wildest Dreams …. which we can now nurture so that it exists as a young shoot emerging from the rubble of what is now crumbling.
In the summer we had a window of one month to co-create our live singing bowl workshops in the UK with four different beautiful groups. Each person brought so much depth to their alchemical journeys – many of them having come out of solitary lockdown journeys. The bowl forging allowed them to alchemise their experiences into new sound instruments of great potency. We were honoured to be midwives.
Moving our lives to a new country has been a very big step and is still unfolding. At times it feels monumental and overwhelming with challenges regarding becoming legal in a different country and adjusting to different ways of living. The language is so different, it’s not easy to pick up and so many conversations are not had or are even misunderstood due to language barriers. We are sure that many more spontanious visits would happen if the language allowed ease of communication. Our learning is slow but the language of the heart connects beyond the spoken language, which means many smiles and waves and gestures of the heart beyond words.
Getting to grips with the legalities and working through the requirements of a different burocratic system is really testing us! Sometmes we feel like we are going in circles with no way through. I.e. it might be impossible to make our van legal here with all thats required. That throws up huge questions regarding our work and travel… plus the fact that traveling between countries has been made very difficult – and with Brexit coming up – even more so. We are challenged existentially to step outside what we have known and be in the space of’ what else is possible and required at this time?’ The world is changing and maybe what we have been doing so far will no longer be the same as what we will be doing in the Future? We are moved to ask ourselves: ‘Who can we become now as we allow ourselves to drop into the frequency of Earth beyond time and beyond what we have known so far?’ These are the questions that move us and sometimes scare us and challenge us to expand and trust this incredible generosity we are encountering.
Sometimes when the days and nights are really cold, the house is freezing,,,Tensions rise – and we have to reach out to friends afar for the warmth and perspective that can change. We realize that we – and many – are grieving. We are grieving an era of ease of travel and way of being, we are also grieving our familiars and friends from our life that was about travelling and meeting / seeing being with friends… . And probably all of us are grieving the end of an era, a way of life that may never return in the same way.
And we also know that this is the change we have been asking for – so giving the grief time and space feels good, so that from the deep feeling well of transformation something else can arise. From where we allow ourselves to ‘dream’, live and create from kindness with ourselves, our bodies and all around us. It can be a raw time when we are all in the midst of creating as though every moment is new … tender new tendrils emerging into the soil of our new becoming. So we remind ourselves to be with Earth, the land, the garden, the forge, the sound to refocus our energies towards the creative possibilites..
When we really allow ourselves to be enfolded and as one with the frequencies of the immense gift that life with Earth brings us to we are closer to the source of our essence, each one of us here with gifts and capacities that shine and allow a unique cell to coalesce within the multidimensional space of infinite possibilities.
As and when travel allows we are going to be able to offer individual and small group deeper immersion retreats to those who are keen to be here with us and experience a new way of being and a path of sound alchemy through the forge, the granite, the wider lands and the fields that are emerging here in the valley of the Muxagata River, Sobral Pichorro, Fornos de Algodres.
And as we bring this writng of gratitude for all that is to a close, we ask …
What invitation can we, on this land of the ancient path keepers of peace and essential wellbeing be, to you, as we open up the portals of the sound alchemy studio in co-creation with what is uniquely available here, in beautiful, warm hearted and generous Portugal?
And what frequency/ vibration can the sounds and transmissions from these lands create and awaken in you to assist everyone to be and sound the tone of your true being, creating a symphony that allows the reality around us to reshape beyond chaos and mayhem into its next highest harmonic expression?
Nature has our backs.
Nature is completely with us.
Our invitation to you is to know and live from that same ultimate truth of being.
Nature has our backs.
Nature is completely with us.
We are of Nature … let us each come to Know that and may we meet her there as partners and co-creators.

What have we learnt, created, received over the last months? Where are we?
I’ve seen people remember their roots, go out on the land and grow food, connect with plants and soil, ask themselves what truly matters, what is of essence?
Especially those with access to land, gardens and nature in any way who also reduced their media input have deepened their sense of being supported by and creating with the Earth, while those who are in cities and locked into mainstream media have suffered a lot of confusion, frustration, isolation and fear.
Collectively are we moving through the eye of a needle? Into where?
What is our part in the creation of the Future? Where do we find ourselves?
In my own journey over this 4 month period I have felt so incredibly looked after…. The bees as our teachers of alchemy:
deep in the womb and the darkness of the hive – occurs the alchemical transformation of raw materials into nourishment- pollen bread and medicines- honey, propolis, venom, royal jelly and more, the creation and nurture of life and the most exquisite structure based on and making visible the sacred geometry that underlies all of life in the hexagonal structure of the waxcoombe.
Outside the dark womb – the hive – they weave and maintain the web of life, vitalize, pollinate vivvify the plants and lands…..
How much can we learn from them at this time of transformation about the inner alchemy of turning what is base material within us into golden nourishment, building material and medicine for a thriving life sustaining future?
What are the dreams hopes, fears, unshed tears, traumas, griefs and potentials within each of us that want to be accessed out of locked cupboards, brought into the fermentation process, so that it can become potent energy for co-creating with our planet?
During May and June We were moved to offer an online series of ‘becoming a conscious co-creator’ which was an incredible journey initiated by the bees and deepened by the elements of fire , water, the seas, the whales and seeds. During this month the most incredible ‘co-incidences and synchronicities’ occurred for so many of us that showed us the universe as a total co-creative force with us – outside of time.
I.e. we found out afterwards that the very day when we all attuned with the oceans and whales was world ocean day! Who arranged that weeks before?
… during the fire attunement week the looting and rioting in the States started – asking us to make relationship with the fire energies on so many levels for co-creation on a deeper level.
We all felt that at this time in history it is more vital than ever to invite the co-creation of all forces of nature and all intelligent species to invite a future that includes the wellbeing and thrival of all
Most of human culture is still completely human centred, but as infinite beings we have a much larger playground of co-creation that is asking to be included.
On my own journey – having now left the Alentejo in Southern Portugal a couple of weeks ago, moving me and some of the bees into central Portugal into the mountains of the Estrella….I have been experiencing the grace of landing in places that I perceived in visions 26years ago.
Wow, what alignments are possible right now at this time that if we allow ourselves to sense and move beyond the fog of fear and confusion that is being created by mainstream media, can give us have access to incredible synchronicities and opportunities way beyond what we thought might be possible?
Would you like to join us these next months to connect to the spirit of co-creation and join the circle of those who wish to bring new possibilities into this changing world?

During this incredible time of everyone being in a different space than ‘normal’ all over the world, where the ‘normal’ we knew may not return in the same way, what is it we are asked to be and create to allow all of us collectively to emerge into a world that is functioning more from love, kindness, joy and interconnectedness of All Life and Earth rather than a world of fear, separation, isolation, control and so called ‘safety’?
What is each of us invited to create and ignite that can shift the collective towards a Future that we all would love to be a part of?
My own experience of this lockdown is one of beauty and joy – mixed in with pangs of anxiety about current political developments that are grist to the cauldron of transformation.
I am sensing myself in the right place for this time – in some way outside of time – I had a strong knowing that I needed to be in Portugal at this time, not in England and I arrived here just before the lockdown. I feel totally supported by nature and the community around able to give my contribution and do my work. In some way it has been such a gift to know that I don’t have to think of the next journey, I am just here, we plant a garden, seeds, plants and trees for the Future, grow vegetables to nourish and be present with the land and the bees.
From there I have the space to forge alchemical instruments that are huge assistants in this transformational journey – quite a few have been commissioned as alchemical tools for this time –
and create sound in co-creation with nature connect for the world.
-. Our small band who work with the bees decided early on to perceive ourselves as one household / family so we could continue the work with the bees at this vital time of the bee cycle. So we have been getting many bee homes ready for new swarms – many of which have been filled with new bee colonies in the last few weeks.
After last autumn’s massive bee dying in this area the bees have surprised us with a huge come back in many vital swarms from those colonies that survived. Many swarms found the homes we prepared for them and some even chose treehomes of their own choosing…
They have been showing us the amazing possibility of a vital comeback after a drastic demise – teaching us about death and rebirth as a natural cycle… I wonder what we can learn from the bees?
If you are interested you can find my bee blogs here
In my learning from the bees I receive so much about the hum of Being – where we as a group learn to move like a hive…..
There are the ones who fly out into the land to collect pollen, nectar, resin and water…. And with the flightpaths and flower meetings enliven, pollinate and gather nourishment, while those in the hive create the alchemy in the dark of the womblike cauldron, the transmutation of nectar into honey, pollen into pollenbread, resin into propolis and wax and more… The hum – sound of creation!
What alchemists of transmutation are we globally being asked to be at a time where society is going through a cryssalis stage of dissolution and change?
What imaginal cells do we need to empower and uphold in the face of destruction and breakdown?
What Future do we wish to co-create?
Being in the very local but international environment I have done much research independent of mainstream media and am very aware of so much of what is going on in the world, in various countries and worldwide. With global awareness I have been moved to work energetically and alchemically through sound, the forge, meditation, inner work, trauma release work, Ho-opono pono and the work with the bees, assisting to create wellbeing and wellness.
What’s going on politically behind the scenes?
In my research concerning the pandemic I have been following the energy of where I am guided to look, which has been mainly independent research and media, where I also learnt quickly, that all major public media outlets are now owned by the same few companies that all promote a similar narrative that justifies a prolonged lockdown/ state of emergency , which means also a suspension of civil rights, which has resulted in a lot of independent research and voices being censored and made unavailable, a powerful move towards world control by whoever might have that motivation. Stopping the freedom of speech, the freedom to gather and quite a few other constitutional, civil and human rights – some researchers who have seen what’s going on behind the szenes of the lockdown, where 5G is still being rolled out (without possible protests) discovered that surveillance / tracking of movement is being installed through cellphone technology and next on the agenda, biochip tracking technology within vaccines…that might become mandatory – of course all ‘for the Good and Safety of The Public’
Hmm – a very worrying scenario of an Orwellian society of total control – an agenda that seems to be rolled out with surprising speed and precision beyond individual governments.
A possible ‘reset’
On the other hand we have an interrupt of a society that was consuming and destroying the planet, Now a re-orientation is becoming possible to values we hold dear rather than simply ‘return to ‘normal’. Many people spend more time connecting with Earth in their garden or allotment, meditate and educate in new and deeper ways. I hear of innovative initiatives, caring people in times of crisis. This time seems to give us the opportunity to reconnect to what is truly important and of true value, like human connection, stillness, connection to Nature and Earth and contributing to a much bigger picture… And it seems to really require us to become clear about what we hold dear, what are our deeper values and how can we live by them.
Might we also be invited into a greater alignment with the greater cycles of time that our whole Earth and Solar system are moving through? Might these changes we are seeing part of these greater cycles? And what can we do and be to align and contribute?
There are also those who are suffering in isolation or those who are suffering within the confinement of domestic abuse, which has risen dramatically in certain sectors of society and countries – making those issues of ‘isolated’ units more acute.
In homeopathy there is a principle for healing, where sometimes when an organism has been in a chronic state of sickness, which means the illness had become ‘normalized’ and no progression towards healing was possible, one has to induce the acute state and symptoms of the disease, where symptoms momentarily get worse and amplified, so that from there a movement towards healing and change becomes possible with the right input to support the organism to self regulate, heal and evolve to the next level of wholeness.
Could it be that now Collectively we might be at such a point in time, where many symptoms of what is out of balance in our Societies are flagged up and we have the opportunity for change?
So within all this we seem to be presented with an amazing opportunity of a ‘reset’, from where we as an organism could choose a different trajectory and Future!
Some even speak of an advanced and more ‘ascended’ way of being with the planet and each other.
What could that be like?
To stimulate this re-evaluation of our lives on individual and collective levels
Charles Eisenstein has written a beautiful essay with all the topics and questions that are asking us to look at the choices we have been living from and that we are seeing the effects of and that will need to be redefined https://charleseisenstein.org/essays/the-coronation/
So what would be the ‘input’ required that would allow our superorganism of our world society together with the Earth and all of Earth’s inhabitants to move towards healing / wholeness and thriving?
And what can we be and do to create a Future we desire and the journey to co-create it in grace and beauty with the intelligence of All of life and the Earth herself?
Vibrational alignment and co-creation
We have been working with co-creation – inviting the intelligence of our invisible guides and helpers as well as the intelligence of nature, plants, trees, insects, bees……. and Earth for many years.
What can we contribute and co-create together at a time like this where we are in the big changes – with wars being waged in many areas and dimensions….?
We have put together some resources from our own work and that of others we have followed and admire.
Some Resources to to navigate the waves of these times and all that is arising while creating well-being and aligning with a much bigger galactic wave.
We have created a library of sounds and Sound vibrational meditations and co-creations with nature – enlivening soundfiles and videos, sound meditations and co-creations to assist and contribute to this time…..
Sound to align, heal, lift and transform, our soundcloud channel has lots of sound wands and uplifting sound contributions: https://soundcloud.com/
So now more than ever being in a vibration of gratitude and joy and creating from what we have is a most powerful starting point.
When we see things in the world that trigger us, more than ever we might wish to practice Ho-opon pono or shadow work, where we take responsibility for our part of whatever triggers us, – asking ourselves: ‘ where might I have co-created or am co- creating this situation in the past or present in whatever large or small way?’ -Whether its cognitive or non cognitive we can allow and embrace that part inwardly and invite it to come back into wholeness…I’ve created a Ho-oponopono bowl and a small Ho-oponopono video here: https://youtu.be/Y9COtghxqw0:
Trauma and Nervous System Release: And when we come across tension and fear, also know that some is ours and a lot is not, but we have the opportunity to transform and release it for the whole and for those who are in much worse conditions…. Doing practices that bring us back into easeful flow with life.
These can be practices of total presencing with ‘what is’ from a place of stillness and ‘being with. Allow yourself to be present with a symptom or tension or fear in Nature.
There are trauma release practices to allow our individual and collective trauma to melt and release. This means literally unwinding the nervous-system response that through trauma gets locked into fight, flight or freeze responses, which need to be rewired so that we can live from the easeful flow of an acoustic wave.
I have created a Soundmeditation to start the healing of trauma here
Transforming Tension: If we are vibrating in a space of tension and fear, lets stop and breathe, move from ‘doing’ into ‘being’ with the intention to release and transform the tension inside that reflects the tension outside and bring ourselves into the state of easefull flow – knowing ourselves as Oneness – becoming the wave of generosity, peace and connectedness, allowing the nervous system to be in relaxation rather than stress. Allowing the ‘ease of being’ and relaxation, peace, stillness and connectedness to allow the collective trauma patterns of freeze, fight and flight to release and transform
Can we expand and open in the face of contraction and, can we be in gratitude when faced with adversity, can we be the energy of wholeness and healing to wherever it might be required when tension arises?
https://www.greenmedinfo.com/ Great resource for any wholistic health issues. They have also extensively engaged with Corona and now with the agenda of enforced vaccinations to end lockdown with some great newsletter articles and resources:
While lockdown in some countries and areas has meant great hardship and even starvation and the advancement of 5G towers with enforced vaccinations including microchip tracking, mindcontrol and censorship with 5G and biochips – a very real possibility that I feel we need to be absolutely aware of and awake to and yet not become! e.t.c..
at the same time there is less pollution and in many it has opened the possibility of being still, reconnecting with nature and self and at least for a while I noticed a greater availability of stillness and peace, connectedness to Earth, plants, gardens and Nature and each other in a different way. So many people seem to use the time to re-evaluate their values and life and how they would like to live.
May we ride the wave of this time with grace through the storms of controversy and control and arrive at the other side in a thriving Future. Lets bring our attention and imaginative energy to that Future

The Alentejo Bee journals Spring 2020 1st installment mid March to mid April
Dear Bee and Earth lovers
I would like to write to you from a Southwestern rural area of Portugal in the Alentejo, where I arrived to be with bees before the worldwide lockdown occurred and decided to stay while it lasted.
I feel very good with my choice to be here as it allows me to be with land, with trees and bees, with the forge and the alchemy – nature, the Earth and all the truly supports life being completely available.
What called me back to the bees this spring?
There are major differences to being and working with the bees that I am learning and evolving here to any other ways of being with bees I have encountered before.
Years ago I became a bee keeper after attending an alternative bee keeping course, but then in order to have local back up I needed to join the local bee keeper’s society where I learnt practices that now I see were really invasive and detrimental to the wellbeing of the bees. In order to fulfill those what were called ‘necessary’ invasions of the hive body, I had to wear protective clothing / bee-suits – exposing no part of my body, so that the invasion could be executed without me feeling the feedback of the bees who very clearly warn an invader when opening a hive is an untimely trespass and harmful to the wellbeing of the hive.
So what we are practicing and learning here is so different and deeply honouring of the life of the bees, intending to support their well being and work, learn from them, co-create with them and be in communion with them, rather than perceive and use them as farm animals whose products are our economic support.
Approaching the bee hive:
We approach the hives barefoot, so we are in contact with the Earth and tune in with the hive before we approach to be in communion and if at any point we sense a requirement to open a hive (very rarely truly necessary) we would ask and tune in. We usually don’t wear protective clothing and we are welcomed by the bees – surrounded by the humm. Sometimes when we come too close we hear and respond to the more intense warning humm of a guard bee asking us to step back.
This Spring many bees including the honey bees have been coming in with new swarms and vitality earlier than usual:
As many of you know, last autumn this part of the Alentejo saw the demise of many many bee colonies – way more than any of the previous years, where there always were losses in the dry summers and the cold winters, but not like the losses experienced during the last season, which was way more extreme. What did the bees show us?
We were looking at how we can support all wild bees and in particular the honeybees as the alchemists and way showers of community thriving in these times?
We started to look at how bees living in symbiotic partnership with trees could really be supported both in their thriving and wellbeing – trees providing a much more profound shelter for bees that includes the microclimate of the tree, its internal apothecary, thick living walls to regulate extreme outside temperatures and moisture, shelter from Electromagnetic frequencies and more. So we started looking for log hives – hollowed out tree trunks with very big wall and created tree hives – using natural tree cavities and shaping them a little with cob to make them habitable for bee colonies. – see my first Bee blog Journeys with bees from last autumn
Throughout the winter and early spring several of my bee friends made interesting discoveries. Several of them found bee colonies who had settled in trees themselves, as if to confirm this re-wilding impulse of bees living more healthily in trees.
And then this spring, swarms of bees started to arrive early – full of vigor and vitality from the few surviving vital colonies.
I am so moved by these beings of light who are showing us a path. What did they know about dying and renewal that is now happening…? And what are they showing us regards living more closely in symbiotic partnership with trees, land, vegetation, Earth? A friend of mine speaks about the need to rewild ourselves…
In the early part of this spring we still found losses after the winter as well as some very vital survivors.
Part of the work in the early spring was to get hives ready for new swarms.
Various bee hives we work with:
We placed 5 log-hives on various lands – inviting bees into a hollow trunk home that was once a tree high off the ground.
We built a couple of tree hives in living trees, where we reduced the
vast open cavities with cob to create better sized and protected cavities.
We also placed a few what they call ‘swarm attractor’ boxes, where swarming bees can find temporary homes. They look more like the conventional square bee hive boxes,
And we also prepared some hives called top-bar hives that are installed to foster deeper human – bee relationships world – giving humans access to the bee world through a glass window at the back, whose cover can be opened to see the bees at work in their home without disturbing them and two tiny holes for stethoscopes, where humans can listen and meditate with the humm of the bees – a very profound experience. These hives need some improvements regards thicker walls and insulation for the bees – to make them long term sustainable but our first swarm chose one of these as their new home only a couple of days after we had prepared it and energetically invited a bee colony who would be happy to be a relationship building colony – being in communion and teaching us humans.
Swarming is an activity of renewal in the cycle of a bee colony, where half of the colony moves out to find a new home while the other half expands and allows a new young queen to take her place.
Have you ever had an experience where suddenly the air is filled with humm and there are bees everywhere? It is an unforgettable experience to be completely envelopped in a humm until the cloud of bees settles as a cluster – usually in a tree hanging from a branch. If you are lucky and the cluster is on a low branch you can even touch them and possibly collect them in a box if you have a beautiful home ready and waiting for a bee colony. Or you can leave them to find their own home.
Here a video of one of our early swarms this spring
Here in Portugal swarming season is in April, while in northern Europe swarms my not emerge until may/june.
This year here in the Alentejo swarms started to arrive in late march – earlier than usual.
Swarms have been arriving into our lives every few days over the last couple of weeks. It is such a joy and privilege to be party to this vitalizing activity.
Here a beautiful video of one of last years swarm :
Did you know that in conventional bee keeping swarming is attempted to be inhibited by expanding the bee hive, so that the bees are kept busy trying to fill up the bigger space with brood, honey and pollen and by removing queen cells that would produce new queens.
The bees are informing us that the yearly swarming of a colony is an act of rejuvenation for the queen and the colony. The queen takes half of the colony with her to find a new home and during that time is her only time during the year that she is outside in the light – renewing herself ( since her first nuptial flight when she became a queen). As soon as the colony has found a new home, she will be in the dark laying eggs and holding the colony in her auric field ( also through the scent and reach of her pheromones) for the rest of the season into the next spring, when the colony builds up enough stores and strength to once again dived into two and renew. The bees left behind in the old hive have enough stores and brood to keep going until one of the new princesses emerges from a queen-cell, takes herself out on her nuptial flight and returns as a new queen. Thus both halves of the colony have renewed themselves and expanded the diversity of the gene-pool and passed on evolutionary knowledge.
Guest article by Nita Gage: Close Encounters of the Unexplainable Kind
A “spiritual cathedral” was the description of the first crop circle I was privileged to experience in the summer of 2012 in Avebury, Wiltshire, England.
“Profound, mind blowing, my view of he world is turned upside down.” Lee exclaimed as she sat mesmerized in the center of a crop circle.
My friend Lee was visiting me while I lived in England. She is an Americancollege lecturer and generally intellectual and pragmatic, not usually impacted by new age spiritual experiences. I thought she might enjoy going to a crop circle in Wiltshire, just for a lark. I had longed to visit a crop circle for several years, sensing I would have a profound spiritual experience. Lee’s experience was the one I expected to have myself, thinking she might, at best, find it mildly interesting.. Yet it were her eyes that were glowing, her demeanor transformed, energized and yet visibly soft.
I, in contrast, walked away from the crop circle experience, feeling flat, somewhat confused and deeply disappointed that I had not been catapulted into spiritual awakening. I was somewhat embarrassed by my response and chose to keep it hidden from Lee and my other friends that day. Instead I focused on the beauty of the landscape and listened intently to the incredible experience Lee and the others were having
I was deeply perplexed and curious over the conflicting negativity of my experience with that of the others who found it uplifting and positive Over time, I came to understand my response leading me to revisit Wiltshire and a new crop circle that appeared two weeks later.
My friend Lee returned to America, and I was left to sort through the depression and despair I was experiencing after the crop circle. I dove into research about crop circles and the experiences people have when during their visits. Some people visiting the circles experience physiological effects including heightened awareness, feeling subtle energies, headaches, and a profound sense of peace. Research conducted with scientist Masahiro Kahata into brain wave patterns indicates that brain waves are affected by proximity to crop circles (CPR Database Ref. # 93-029,073, 079, 080). Spontaneous healings also have allegedly occurred inside crop circles.
“Aha,” I said out loud “headaches! So not all experiences are positive,” I found that somewhat comforting.
In the meantime, Lee called and told me that she was continuing to feel the expanded awareness and deep connection to a spirituality she had never experienced. And it is worth noting that two years later she reports to me that she has continued to be impacted by the shifts in her consciousness precipitated at the crop circle that day.
A few nights after the crop circle visit, I dreamed of being back in that same crop circle. It was a lucid dream in which I stood on the edge of the circle and as I entered it, my dream body shuttered, and I felt my very molecules and DNA dissolve. In the dream I was speechless, no words for the experience, no explanation, yet, I was at peace Floating to the center of the formation, slightly elevated from the ground in the dream I grasped the inexplicable nature of the creation of the crop circle phenomenon, and yet there was no confusion for me in the dream.
In the first moments of my awakening reverie, a message came to me explaining that my reaction of despair was the cognitive resonance of my rational mind seeing “the impossible” manifested in front of me. The egoic attachment to needing everything to be explainable, in that moment crumbled and I was left in a deep sense angst as I sensed the abyss of ‘not knowing.’ Though I have always been open-minded and could intellectually accept strange and unexplainable things in an abstract sort of way, the safety of my skepticism kept me at arms length from allowing full acceptance of mysterious phenomenon. The crop circle experience trumped my skepticism and on an unconscious level, suddenly everything I thought to be true and certain, no longer was. My false foundation of rational certainty was shattered. I was terrified that day, yet instead of experiencing terror, I collapsed into despair and depression.
The dream gave me a context to talk about my experience and to research it further. I called friends who work with the crop circles who assured me that my reaction was not uncommon and that I was being blessed with a deep spiritual awakening and breakthrough out of egoic consciousness. I was greatly relieved and knew that the transformative experience would be to return to a crop circle. Two days later I learned a new one had just formed near Avebury. I went with my friend Gabriella, a crop circle expert and accomplish sound healing practitioner, who had been with us to the first circle.
We arrived and instantaneously I felt the expanded awareness of stepping onto the formation. Electricity shot through me entire body. I sat down and meditated with Gabriella playing her singing bowls. We were miraculously the only people in the formation allowing us to meditate and sound the bowls without interference. Information seemed to come to me, almost as a download from the formation. I sensed that the formation came from messages deep within the earth. I felt my body resonate with the energy of the earth, the circle and the air creating an experience of oneness.
We sat a long while, then, in silence, we moved through the entire formation, spiraling through each compartment as though walking a labyrinth. We emerged, sounded the bowls one more time, looked at each other and knew we were complete with that experience.
Leaving a crop circle for the second time, I too, was for ever changed. Skepticism transformed to curiosity with a touch of discrimination and that shift in perception and thinking continues to impact all parts of my life. A renewed trust in the not knowing, the unfolding and emerging of existence doesn’t need a rational explanation. In fact, life is a whole lot more fun and filled with wonderment once the need to know cleared out and left space for experiencing the mystery of life on earth.
As I walked away, I asked for a message of guidance from the energy of the crop circle, what I got was this:
“You are charged with bringing others here to discover the wonderment and transformative energy of crop circles.” I knew then, at some point, I would be facilitating this trip to Avebury!
We live in a unique time in history during which the ancient indigenous knowledge and mythology of the past are fusing with the science of the present. Nowhere is this more evident than in the field of medicine. Modern medicine is open in a way it has never been before to alternative and complementary theories based on subtle energy. Some of these healing modalities, such as Reiki, create patterns and symbols with frequencies that facilitate healing. Shamanic Breathwork participants often speak of the symbols, sounds and energy experienced during their journey that they later learn are ancient healing energies.
Healing frequencies are used to shift mind and body. Sound waves create frequency patterns by vibrating particles into specific geometries. Words have vibrations and can change the composition of H2O (Emoto, 1997)
Many researchers have speculated that energy sound waves may have vibrated the earth and created crop circles. Others posited that crop circles are created by beings from other planets of dimensions. Many have observed orbs of lightmoving in patterns over the crops as the formations appear.
There are few unexplainable mysteries more accessible than crop circles. Each spring and summer these enigmatic patterns appear overnight in crop fields, particularly around the Avebury landscape temple in Wiltshire, England. Cosmic works of art, ET communications in sacred geometric format, pranksters’ hoaxes, spiritual guidance or a warning voice from Gaia, whatever your opinion crop circles are fascinating and truly remarkable. And, for many, life altering!
