Another 11-11-11 portal

Yes, Virginia, we have another 11-11-11 portal coming up! This rare event is occurring twice this month. The second one will be this coming Sunday, November 29, 2009.

Looking back to November 11, the date of the first portal, most of us may not be able to point to any outwardly extraordinary event to mark the day -- but if you're like me, you've been sensing a big shift in perspective and in your ability to hold higher-level energies since that time.

There are many channeled writings dealing with the energies of the 11-11-11. Here are links to channelings from two sources I respect, in case you'd like to read more:

Jennifer Hoffman (scroll down to article entitled "11-11-11")

Lauren Gorgo (scroll down to blog post dated November 5)

See you on the other side!


Thanksgiving and the Farm Sanctuary

Happy Thanksgiving to all those who celebrate!

As a vegetarian since age 19 (that's 34 years and counting, in case you haven't guessed my age by my hair color), I was especially excited to get a phone call from my sister in California last weekend, as she and her husband were on their way to the Farm Sanctuary for the Festival of the Turkeys. This is an annual event at a farm where abused farm animals are cared for and allowed to live out their days peacefully and in comfort.

Part of the annual event is a ritual where the people feed pumpkin pie TO the turkeys!

My sister is the "Healthy Living" blog writer for the San Francisco Examiner, and posted a video of their experience at this link:

Farm Sanctuary

The brief talk at the end by Compassionate Cook Colleen Patrick-Goudreau is especially inspirational.

I hope all are enjoying your own versions of this holiday -- and my deep gratitude to each of you for sharing in this journey with me.

It seems that doing a grounding exercise is particularly important now. I've had two occasions in the past several days when odd physical symptoms went away as soon as I did a visualization of sending a grounding cord from my second chakra into the heart of the Earth.

Happy New Moon, everyone!

Pluto-Saturn symbols

Already this morning, a few interesting events that seem symbolic of the square between Pluto in Capricorn and Saturn in Libra:

- I awoke to find that the clock in our bathroom had stopped overnight (Saturn rules time, Pluto rules the elimination/cleansing process).

- While walking our dogs at the park, we watched a crow, flying very low, chase a squirrel all the way across the parking lot. Crow represents integrity and our willingness to walk our talk (Saturn) and Squirrel indicates the need to release clutter on all levels (Pluto).

- And, it is no surprise that my husband and I had a minor disagreement (Libra rules relationships, and Capricorn rules authority).

So, starting the day off with fanfare!

The quiet before the storm?

The air feels very still this morning, and the feeling of anticipation continues. Tomorrow (Sunday, November 15) is the first Pluto-Saturn square, representing a tension that is ready to be released. The question, of course, is where and how, and what effects we will feel.

I find it interesting that the intermagnetic field is southerly this morning, and fairly strong -- which means the solar wind is more easily able to enter Earth's atmosphere, bringing us new information and energy directly from the Sun. Perhaps it is providing us with the ideas and creativity needed as we move into the changes ahead of us. It does feel supportive of our progress -- so this may be an especially good morning to remain open to insights and ideas.

The 11-11-11 portal

Yesterday was 11-11-11 (2+0+0+9=11), and I'd love to know your experiences.

For me, I woke up feeling "buzzed" -- as if I had an infusion of caffeine, but without the jitters. That feeling lasted all day, until I had an energy treatment in the late afternoon that took me in a slightly different direction.

My first client of the day said she was also feeling very energized, and that it was a "no-coffee-needed day." My second client said that her day had been so busy, she hadn't had a moment to sit and consider that the energy might be moving differently than usual.

That heady feeling has continued in some form today (Thursday), the sense of not really being connected to reality as usual. I've spent the day doing readings, which often leaves me feeling a bit other-worldly anyway. But I'm sensing this is more than "just" the after-session buzz.

So what are you feeling since Wednesday? Anything to report?

Thursday, November 5, 2009


This new month has been feeling quite different than the last, almost from the first day. October now looks to have been a plateau -- not without events to consider, but a time when many unfolding situations seemed to pause in their process.

This week, by comparison, has involved a lot of movement, and that feeling of anticipation continues. Situations that had been off radar for much of October are now building again, ready to move to the next stage.

We're going through a vibrational upgrade, and next week is evidently a time when we'll feel the energy strongly. Be sure to take care of your physical body by getting plenty of rest, eating well and taking in lots of water. And if emotions come up, feel them but don't attach to them by trying to explain them or justify them -- and then let them go.

Evidently, anger has an initial burst that lasts about 90 seconds -- and then, if we don't hold onto it, it just dissipates. Perhaps the other negative emotions have a similar process.

One way to deal with fear is to change it into excitement. They're the same feeling in the body, actually -- it's just how our mind interprets the feeling that makes the difference.

We can either feel fearful of the unknown, or excited about new possibilities. A great time to practice that shift point!
