In the Crossroads of our Lives

I don’t know about you, but I have a number of dear friends around me right now in crisis.

Some are grieving the loss of departed, beloved friends and relatives. Others are grieving the loss of how their lives used to be, or their health. Others are experiencing intense feelings of purposelessness, meaninglessness, emptiness. Others are facing crises relating to rebuilding their lives after the crash-and-burn of their previous lives, relationships, jobs.

Some are having to learn who they really are after being jolted awake from the imposed conditions of others’ and society’s opinions and expectations, or by finding themselves emotionally bankrupt at the hands of others’ misdeeds.

Some are struggling to break free of ingrained patterns of unworthiness, abandonment, rejection.

At the very least, many people that I know (in-person and online) are experiencing a chaotic mix of ups and downs, of clarity and confusion.

As you may know from various of my recent Facebook postings and from blogs since 2010, it is a long-heralded, INTENSE TIME that will rebirth and regenerate all areas of our lives.

We are in the midst of a moment that is demanding that we grow and free ourselves into truer expressions of ourselves.  That how we’ve been, both personally and collectively, is deep in major, unprecedented change…for a New Era entirely.

It is changing all systems into higher-vibrational expressions, including us.  And it doesn’t always look ‘pretty’.

We are urged (and I urge you also) to let go, let go, let go of relationships, systems, situations, thoughts, emotions, patterns, jobs that are no longer true for us, that stifle us, that invalidate us and enable us to play small and be less than who we really are.

In these fast-accelerating energies, anything that stands in the way of us becoming who we are becoming in this new paradigm….is specifically highlighted.

We are invited to cut loose the past and create new lives entirely.

This is a major collective moment in an exceedingly intense vortex to find footing in brand new lives and versions of ourselves.

Solara:  We are like eggs who through years of effort have already cracked off most of our shell of illusion. As our external shell is peeled off, the expired elements of our past are removed. Now, there is only a thin membrane separating us from fully embodying our Trueness.

Celia Fenn:  As the Seasons prepare to change we are involved in a powerful process of personal and planetary ReGenesis. This means we are rebirthing and renewing as we reconnect with the Wild and the Creative within ourselves and within Nature.

Melissa LaFlamme:  Drop your maps and listen to your lostness like a sacred calling into presence. Here, where the old ways are crumbling and you may be tempted to burn down your own house. Ask instead for an introduction to that which endures. Here, where there is nothing left to lose, sing out of necessity that your ragged heart be heard. Send out your holy signal and listen for the echo back.


For myself, as I wrap-up my 2 weeks in Girona before heading to Zaragoza on Friday morning, I, too, have been experiencing extremely intense feelings of both elation and resistance, of past and future….as I continue the shamanic, deep letting-go of elements of my past and embrace the strident impulses of the New.  I can honestly admit:  it’s not always pleasant.  But the thing is, birth IS chaotic, even with the best laid plans and best practices.

In my life, I’ve learned that insulating myself from growth (whilst paradoxically chasing it at the same time) doesn’t work.  Life is about LIFE:  movement, change, exploration, growth, connection, creativity.  Birth, Death, Rebirth.

When these are not flowing, we are stuck…usually out of fear or grief.  And we can be stuck personally, nationally, collectively.

But it can also be that in the grander scheme of things, we are living through the crossroads-time of being in-between paradigms, with uncertain feet in both camps. We may be simply traveling within the evolutionary wave that is taking us forward, like the movement from the Dark / Middle Ages into the Renaissance.

Only it’s happening much, much faster now. And we can’t insulate ourselves from it.  In our timeframe and lives, the New is exploding and explosive.


As I prepare for April’s ‘Holy Grail in Spain’ Tour, I continue to delete and dissolve what I cannot take with me into the New. That which I need not delete, is being transformed.

Outside my known, comfortable parameters, again and again, and over and over, it’s the Tour’s core themes of Spiritual Travel, the Dark Feminine / Black Madonna, Holy Grail, and the Sacred Fire all magically intertwined in my now…for greater Life, Authenticity, Freedom, Beingness, Self-Realization, Self-Actualize and Service.

lt’s the journey and pilgrimage to step into one’s own Holy Grail.  To heal the wasteland, just like in the myths of old…and to become our Truest Selves. To not just ‘reform’….but to find new Treasure and to TRANSFORM

In the 3-day Immersion that will take place at the end of the Tour, we will be grounding all that we’ve experienced deep into our bodies, emotions, DNA, nervous systems, chakras.  We will invoke, meditate, intend, dance and share to embody the Fire of a New Being.

The Tour will invite us all to look for and find the Treasure Within…..whilst we walk the path of the ones who have walked in those very places before.  For that richer, more embodied way of living and being that will come from stepping into the alchemical mysticism and magic of ancient Spain.

For this purpose, I invite you again to consider undertaking April’s “Holy Grail in Spain Tour ~ embodying the Sacred Fire”.
