February Stargate– And Solar Eclipse I

Alia’s comments: Today begins a “Gateway” of intensified energies and astrological alignments leading up to the Solar Eclipse early Sunday morning (6:55 AM PST February 26).

You can find your local time here.

Sandra Walters has long been one of my “Go-to” Lightworkers for understanding of what is happening on an energetic level. I recently posted a link to another Lightworker’s article  about Particle Convergence. This is the Gateway for the influx of the photonic light that was spoken of in that post. It’s beginning NOW during these next few days. It’s time to slow down and receive this incoming boost to our ascension and expansion.

As this is a long article, I’m posting it in two parts, today and tomorrow. Together with a couple of other Goddesses in my community, I will be creating a crystal grid formation in a secluded place in the forest, to amplify and anchor these positive energies for Humanity and our Mother Planet. I invite you to join me in whatever manner brings you JOY!

Sandra Walter: Stargate Activated: Gateways Open for Embodiment

Blessings Beloved Light Tribe

Our Gateway week is upon us. Gatekeepers opened for the influx on SUNday, and the energies increased immediately. This is a powerful and transitional stargate for HUmanity, which will greatly affect those engaging with Solar Cosmic Christ embodiment. Continue reading

That’s a R.A.P.

lost-valley-signOur RAP (Resident Application Process) here at Lost Valley is one of the systems we have in place that allows our community to expand, while screening prospective residents for skills and values that align with our stated vision and mission.

In late August 2016 Tomas and I began our RAP with a one and a half hour phone call with the Site Manager, part of whose job description is fielding the initial inquiries of interested parties and sending them the application for residency should they still be interested in applying after such a phone interview or visit to the physical location.

Presently, our site manager is a woman and she is so competent in her job that often that initial call or visit is all the further the applicant goes. I call this person The Gate Keeper with all due respect and affection.

After a year and a half of perusing the Lost Valley website, Tomas and I were even more inspired to complete the application after our phone call . We received our applications by email and completed them online. Continue reading

Trusting the “Container”

The Container

Since Tomas and I moved to our new Community in December, we have participated in many group processes from forums, to bi-weekly community meetings, to multiple-stage interviews of resident-applicants, as we move through the year-long process toward becoming full members.

A few times these meetings have concerned matters that required high levels of trust and discernment from those who chose to participate. Sometimes these “tricky” issues related to policies that needed updating (such as, now that recreational marijuana is legal in the state of Oregon, how do we amend our current policy to include this and the impact of potential second-hand smoke on fellow residents?) Sometimes, these tricky matters pertained to individuals whose conduct or alignment with overall community goals and visions was in question.

Either way, some of these meetings were approached with a certain amount of anxiety. Continue reading

Edible Native Plants — An Awakening Moment

justin-slw-january-24-2017

This past Wednesday evening we were treated to a very special evening of learning here at Lost Valley Education and Event Center. Our Executive Director, Justin Michelson, did a Sustainable Living Workshop (SLW) presentation about Edible Native Plants, available for the harvesting right here on our property — literally under our noses — at their proper time of year — mostly late spring through fall.

Justin motivated us to attend, promising tasty samples of many of the plant subjects of the evening. He also promised that he would bring a selection of potted  native plants that he and another member-resident would soon be selling in their Native Plant Nursery, a micro-business they are starting here at Lost Valley.

Let me take a moment here to tell you that a rich part of this community comes to the fore during these Sustainable Living Workshops, taught from the diversity-rich bodies of knowledge carried within each of our members. It is required of each person living here that we teach two or three of these SWLs per year as a means of sharing our knowledge and passions with one another and the greater community. These events are advertised on our Facebook page and the public is encouraged to join us. Even if you don’t live close by, please Follow us and Like us.

I knew that Justin was starting this nursery and that he had been working very hard to get some of the preparations done before leaving today for his month-long, silent meditation retreat in California. However, I was unprepared for the momentous impact that his presentation would have on both me and Tomas — it was one of those life-changing events that shifted us to a new perspective and one that will continue to influence how we look and interact with our food for the rest of this lifetime.

That’s a HUGE impact! Continue reading

Connection

I thank Lisa at Playamart Zebra Designs for bringing this to my attention. Upon watching this video I commented that Tomas and I had experienced this kind of eye to eye connection with people in Morocco — even with perfect strangers! People would surprise us with their Presence, even in casual conversation — they were really THERE with us. We quickly learned to match them and as a result gained many close and lasting friendships in a culture that is quite different from our native one. We learned that people are people and that it is possible to connect deeply with others, in spite of such differences when we look through our eyes with our hearts open, or at least be willing to let our hearts open in the process. Enjoy this documentation of hearts opening, Alia

The Panama Adventure

What do we need as human beings to survive? food, shelter, reproduction, connection. We are social beings. Babies literally die without human touch and connection. Adults don’t do well either, mentally or physically, without human connection.

I saw this video recently HERE. Amnesty International conducted an experiment. They put refugees from Somalia and Syria in front of individuals from Europe and the instructions were to just look into each others eyes for four minutes. They were hoping that this looking at each other would be the start of a connection and a realization of shared humanity. As you will see, it worked.

I have said many times that I am so happy here in Panama, and the main reason is the people. I feel like they really SEE me. When they look at me, talk with me, and smile at me I feel that connection. Of course I had…
