"THE TIME OF WOMEN LEADING, ON ALL LEVELS, HAS COME"
In December 2012 I traveled to Tikal, Guatemala, for the great calendar shift of the Maya, from Baktun 12 to Baktun 13. This was one of the most power-filled experiences of my life,
...and I met it with fever and delirium.
I was amazed when 4:00 AM came on Dec. 21, and I woke with no symptoms of illness - At All! - which allowed me to wind my way with the others, flashlights in hand, to the central plaza.
Jaguars called from the surrounding jungles as the sun rose behind the main pyramid temple. The ceremonial fire blazed, encircled by Mayan elders and villagers 10 persons deep. I was drawn forward to throw my colored candles with my prayers, into the fire. That's when I knew the tide was about to shift.
Three days later, I was sitting around a table with Mayan Daykeeper Tata Santiago, his wife, a gifted healer, Isabela, and 16 year old daughter. I was with my American travel companions at a home in Panajachel, Lake Atitlan and it was almost Christmas day. Each of us took a turn telling our stories of what happened for us within the portal of Dec. 21.
I shared my story, that I had fallen ill with fever. I had been able to feel everything around me very strongly - other's emotions, desires, fears... as well as, the care of the Ancestor spirits of that holy place. I had felt my own Ancestors surrounding me. I explained how my symptoms had disappeared long enough for me to attend the sunrise ceremony and offer prayers to the fire. I had felt a deep calling to return home and create a school, devoted to healing the divide between the feminine and masculine energies.
Tata Santiago looked at me unblinking and then offered, "You have gone through a big purification. You are an elder, a guide. I hope you return. We have much to talk about."
Tata Santiago then shared that he was in Lake Titicaca, Bolivia, holding ceremony for the people there. They witnessed a rain storm in the middle of the lake in an unnatural shape. It turns out Duane, my soon to be husband, was also traveling in Peru at that time and he too had seen this rain pouring in the middle of Lake Titicaca. Tata Santiago explained the other signs in nature he witnessed. Then he proclaimed:
"The time of men leading the world has come to an end. The power will be handed now to the women. They will lead at every level of society, from the family, all the way up to governmental. We've seen what men can do, now let's see where the women take us."
Isabela concurred. She'd had a vision in her village. A new sun rose, bright white with no sun spots. "The time of women has come", she said.
THE ME TOO! MOVEMENT IS THE HARBINGER OF A NEW TIME ON EARTH
It has been almost 6 full years since my pilgrimage to Guatemala. I have held such hopes for a consciousness shift in humanity, waiting to see the breakthrough of women and the dismantling of the patriarchy, and now... Now it is truly happening.
The Me Too! Movement is on par with the Civil Rights movement of the 60's, and even goes beyond, because it is global.
I am 45, a child of the 70's and 80's. I have never seen a social movement take off so powerfully and continue to grow. Not even "Occupy". The MeToo! movement if launched at any other time, may not have impacted us the way it has been able to today. Before 2012, the alignment of the planets was not ripe. It was still serving too many of us to keep secrets.
This snowball has become a gargantuan planet-sized boulder, with no sign of slowing down.
All other issues are umbrellaed by THIS issue.
The abuse and enslavement of women over thousands and thousands of years has happened on every continent. It is an injustice practiced by men of all races, religions, economic backgrounds, and most ages.
Here is a very long article I found on TIME website, listing 142 accused public figures after Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein was outed. Why this article is found in the "Entertainment" section still shows the cognitive dissonance in our culture.
Each of these men perpetrated many women. And you can bet, each woman who came forward with the truth, has her own list, that of all the men she's been harassed by throughout her life.

I have my list too:
1. My father, from age 3 to 7.
2. My father's drinking buddies.
3. 8th grade classmates who validated their harassment on the way I'd worn a skirt to a party.
4. My high school friend who wrestled with me trying to get me to submit to sex. I won.
5. The man who secretly felt up my ass when no one could see during a closing circle, at my Reiki Level 2 training.
6. The massage therapist who pulled down the sheet and massaged my breasts. This was my first massage after a near-death car accident which I was still in trauma from.
7. My first native teacher (35) who asked me my age (I was 20) and told me he wanted to marry me and bring me back to Oklahoma with him, then told me to keep the conversation a secret. Turns out he said the same thing to 3 other women. Later it came out he'd sexually assaulted two of them.
8. My Sioux (purposely not using "Lakota") medicine man teacher - every purification lodge laying his head in my lap, and then molesting me during a doctoring ceremony.
9. My Sioux teacher's son, who cornered me in the kitchen, corralling me with his hands on the counter on either side. I can't even remember how I got out of that.
10. My employer at a nonprofit who caressed my cheek saying, "Such a beautiful face..."
11. A professor at my graduate school who, when a female student had a private talk with him, spoke to our breasts not our faces.
May the wounds of abuse be healed as women's voices are heard.
This is the First Step, and probably the hardest.
Please, stay strong, stay connected and anchor more deeply than ever into LOVE.
THE CALL TO PALENQUE - 2018
In a channeling session around Summer Solstice, 2018, Duane and I received a message to travel to Tulum, Mexico, to continue the work of healing the Mother Grid that we had started in Beijing, China months before.
In Beijing, we were shown the feminine Black Dragon locked down under the earth, and the masculine White Dragon ungrounded and delusional in the sky above her. Through one week of focused work there from our hotel room, we meditated on releasing the Black Dragon from bondage. Simply through our attention and intention, she was able to break free. The Black and White Dragons were reunited and the healing began. We repaired the Earth Grids above the city and the day we flew out, we had our first smog-free day.
The Summer Solstice channeling brought us our next Lightwork Mission: To travel to the Yucatan and continue awakening the portals along the Mother Grid of the Americas.
We were shown the fibonacci spiral of the Mother Grid starting from Uxmal and Labna, near Merida, and ending at the famously magical and powerful Palenque, in Chiapas state. We were told to offer sacred stones and to collect sacred water at each of 7 sites.
Though we have only vague instruction so far, I feel so strongly about this journey!
Mexico, land of my ancestors on my father's side, conquered by the Spanish in the 1500's, and lost in the shadow masculine power-over paradigm ever since.
It is time for the voice of the Mexica Madre Indigena to awaken!
I believe that if we can clear and activate the Mexico Mother Grid, a wave of healing will flood into North and South Americas. She is THAT potent!
We have scheduled an event to invite more lightworkers to participate in this mission. If you are Bay Area/North Bay local - please join us on October 12, 2018!
