It has been heartbreaking to watch those in Texas struggling with the trauma of Hurricane Harvey and the displacement of extreme flooding.
Other parts of the U.S. are also suffering right now too—for example, there's a 300,000 acre wildfire burning in Oregon today. Other parts of the world are also suffering from natural disasters and extreme weather right now too.
It's about climate change, of course. But it is also about Gaia, our earth, reflecting our collective soul.
We are not many separate souls. We are One soul.
This doesn't just apply to human souls, either.
Are sentient beings (living and non-living) are part of the collective soul of Gaia.
Humans, animals, plants, minerals, weather systems.
Whatever we think, whatever stress we feel, whatever crushing situations we are under as humans, are all reflected in our group thought, which shapes the energy of our collective soul.
Do you recall how sometimes a person you know, will reflect your shadow right back to you?
Right now, many of our political leaders are reflecting our shadow.
And right now, Gaia is also reflecting our shadow..
Gaia is not separate from us, we are not separate from Gaia. Gaia is a collective consciousness that we are part of. What we feel, Gaia feels and vice versus.
Extreme weather is not punishment for our "sins." It is true, we have not been good stewards of the earth, and we're finally starting to figure that out. But there is no punishment here. Instead, Gaia is simply reflecting to us, and we are reflecting to Gaia, the extreme shadows we are working through, as collective soul.
It's not always stress, trauma, pain.
The weather is not bad every day.
Please remember this, as extreme weather plays out at the end of summer. Sometimes, in fact many times, this world and its weather give us the most beautiful, gorgeous, profound, life-changing experiences we will ever have.
The good, the bad, the all of it: this is what we are, and this is what we create as One with each other and with Gaia.
Be at peace. Send peace to all. Understand there is no separation from each other or from the earth.

The 2017 Solar Eclipse is over.
The media storm has died down.
Even I'm going to stop talking about it.
But first, I want to ask you one thing: Do you feel the changes yet?
If you engaged with this astonished planetary event with intention or a Ritual—whetheryou could see it or not—if you asked the Universe to release whatever needed to be released, and called in whatever need to be called in...
If you did this, you will now notice that these changes have begun.
For example, if you asked to be released from a sticky relationship, you will now notice that the Universe has released you from that relationship.
You may have clear signs that the conflict is over.
You may have clear signs that the relationship has ended.
This may feel strange or uncomfortable.
So often we get habitual about negative things in our life.
When the habit—even if it’s negative— is gone, we might feel strange.
We might even miss it!
Remember: if you have asked to be released from someone or something, you are now released. This void will fill over time, but right now, today… it can feel strange.
Similarly, if you called something in, this has arrived to you already. You aren’t waiting for it: it’s here now.
For example, if you called in abundance, you may notice suddenly that money is coming in out of nowhere, or other signs of abundance are happening. This is your new reality now! Whether it’s abundance, or health, or whatever you asked for… it’s here!
Step into the new reality.
Accept the gift.
The Solar Eclipse was a portal, and you stepped through it.
You are changed, and your life has changed around you.
If you can't tell what’s changed yet, look again.
It’s there for the noticing.

Some of you have shared your experiences during the 2017 Solar Eclipse. Read them and add your comments here.
My own experience was this: I woke up early on eclipse day, with barely contained energy. Because I live in Salem, Oregon, I was in the path of the totality—a 100% view of the event!
Around 9 am Pacific, I went outside. The moon had started its transit, and the day was darkening. Dogs started barking at a neighboring farm, and coyotes began to yip and howl in the distance..
Time passed, and the shadows deepened. By now, if you looked up at the sun with solar glasses, you could see the moon passing in front of the sun. The sun was tantalizing—warm fiery orange and red, and it was tempting to look at it without the glasses—almost as if drawn to it.
It was getting dark. Dr. Steve, who is a master drummer, began to drum, and my son and I joined in. The weather changed—the wind picked up, the trees rustled. I know it got colder, but I don't recall experiencing that. We drummed facing the sun, and as we drummed I caught glimpses of past lives—shimmering memories of other eclipses in other lifetimes. Aztec was what I experienced.
Excitement and energy built. The sun became an orange red crescent. Our phones started beeping with local safety alerts: “Don’t look at the sun!” “Wear your solar glasses!” “No fire or fireworks!” These might have seemed intrusive, but they weren't—they gave a sense of community, a reminder of the hundreds of thousands who had come to be here to witness this planetary event.
The eclipse was nearly upon us, and I felt very strange. This strangeness built and built until a few minutes before totality, I received a massive download of information. It all arrived into my head in one swift, complete moment—a particular new packet of information that was inserted into my brain all at once. I received it without question or doubt—this new understanding is beyond what I could have imagined, and I am very grateful. (I will share it with you later, after I have processed it.)
When totality happened, we took off our glasses. If you couldn't see it, here is what it looked like: the black circle of the moon, and blazing from behind it, a streaming halo of pure white Light.
The eye of God. That’s what I thought.
I cried out Oh my God.
Some of you have written than you cried, sobbed, felt deeply emotional, or completely overwhelmed at this moment. I felt that too.
For myself, all of my intentions which I had so carefully meditated upon in the days before the event, flew out of my head. There was only this astonishing event, and becoming a part of everything.
Around us, in the farms nearby, there arose a tremendous swelling shout as everyone cheered. All of us for miles around, cheering together as the moon danced with the sun.
Eye of God.
Blazing Light in a pitch black sky.
Witnessing it together.
Everything reversed itself very fast after that: a moment after the eclipse hit zenith, the moon moved again—the white light disappeared and the sun became a crescent of fiery orange, this time on the other side.
We put our glasses back on.
We were quiet.
Things were so strange.
In those moments, it felt as if everything had suddenly reversed itself or gone backwards. Darkness lifted. Oddly, we saw streaming fields of light, moving across the air. It is hard to explain this: it’s as if we could the energy traveling in the air, in great sheets of energy.
The shadows from the maples and firs formed unusual crescent shapes on the ground. Roosters crowed their second wakeup call of the morning, and birds began their early morning trills again.
And that was it.
We didn’t watch the rest of it: the passing of the moon to the other side. We went inside. We felt overwhelmed by the power of all that Light all at once, the white blaze of Holy. We were adrenalized for many hours after. I'm still feeling it today.
Millions of people connected for this event,and it is clear: we are One.
We always have been One.
At long last, we are beginning to feel it.

Depending on where you live and what time you are reading this, the solar eclipse is ON today, Monday, August 21, 2017.
Last night, I was front row at the Pink Floyd (tribute band!) Dark Side of the Moon concert-in-the-park in Monmouth Oregon, population 7,000.
And today, at 10:17 am Pacific, I will be standing in the middle of our drivewaywith Dr. Steve and my son, with a perfect view to witness the eclipse.
Around us, the neighbors will be at their vantage points; thousands of campers have set up a city of tents in fields and farms.. Nearby, a local vintner has hundreds of campers at his winery. In our main town, Salem, Oregon, folks have camped at public parks,, and are now gazing skyward.
Everybody’s got their solar eclipse glasses on, purchased months in advance, before our city population increased by 125,000 people for the event, and all the glasses sold out.
At 10:17 am PACIFIC, I'm going to do my Solar Eclipse Ritual.
don’t know what will happen.
I’m giddy with it.
This solar eclipse happens in LEO: If you have planets in Leo, you'll likely feel the effects strongly.
The solar eclipse happens because the moon, reflective of Divine Feminine, our spiritual nature, our intuition, holder of our emotions, will move directly in front of the sun, reflective of Divine Masculine, our active nature, our rationality, and leader of our actions.
For just a few moments, as the world looks on:
• The Divine Feminine will block the Divine Masculine.
• Emotion will block action.
• Intuition will block rationality.
• The inner will block the outer.
The Solar Eclipse is an event as spiritually significant as the December 2012 solstice, which marked the end of the Mayan calendar.
Be present. Be with others.
Notice how you feel during this time.
We are witnessing, as collective soul.
Notice how you feel afterwards.
