In the coming weeks Venus catches up to Neptune as Jupiter has just done, followed by Venus catching up to Jupiter through the end of April into May. Jupiter and Neptune brought many growing beliefs to the forefront. Venus is in perfect harmony with them however Jupiter and Venus each work differently in our lives.
Most people regard Jupiter according to its physical enormity as being far more powerful and influential in our lives than Venus. What Jupiter does is bring to the table big ideas, hopes and dreams in Pisces. Things seem within our grasp, and they are. Jupiter is perceived to be a better support than the rest of the other outer plants: Saturn, Neptune, Uranus, Pluto and Chiron.
Jupiter definitely brings opportunities and opens the door for us to walk through. Sometimes we easily pass through and sometimes we need some help making steps. The difference between what Jupiter and Venus can do is that Venus (as one of the inner planets being inside the orbit of Jupiter and the asteroid belt) is more tangible and seeks more tangible experiences in our conscious lives, not hidden. Venus, like the other inner planets Mercury and Mars, seeks integration into our lives. Mars does it forcefully, Mercury does it with an abundance of thinking and talking. Venus attempts to do it by feeling it: we experience, we taste what Jupiter brought to the table and our hopes are that it’s going to be almost intoxicating as we believed. It could be true; things can be intoxicating when Venus so immediately follows up Jupiter and Neptune in Pisces. And as a separate matter, the experience is real. We feel it. What we feel may not be the truth we held, but it is real.
These planets in Pisces are less interested in being true than they are in being real, determined by personal psychology not by rational objective analysis.
Mars is out of its element in Pisces; at best Mars in Pisces is a spiritual warrior however this is also the mantle worn by many of history’s monsters.
In a month or so when Mars joins Jupiter in Ares everything will have changed from the apparent hopes of recent months into a world that more resembles the state of mind we had before Jupiter entered Pisces and met up with Neptune. What happens when the hopes and dreams of Jupiter and Venus meet up with Neptune in Pisces is played out as the blunt realities of life return to force decisions. We find how successfully flowing or awkwardly dysfunctional our position is and learn the consequences of whatever we attempted to develop in the past few months.
People can feel their vision so strongly they think that it’s the truth, as in feeling and believing equals truth. But this is not always correct. Whatever the case, we should recognize that what people feel deeply is true to them; it is what they will act on. Pisces does not resolve what is true from what is a dream. It is very useful however for us to bring out into the open what we thought was real and true, inflated by our hopes and dreams. It is sometimes the only way to clear up the messy business of delusions which individually are a matter of choice, but in the collective of society are incongruities bound to clash, seeking clarity.
Some tangible examples are things like realizing that Covid is not only not gone but surging. As of this writing there are a little less than 400 people per day still dying of Covid and over 42,000 cases reported daily in the US, with many cases not reported because of the purposefully deceptive reporting mechanisms of some States. Covid deaths are still happening. Like it or not these numbers will climb, Pluto has turned retrograde in Capricorn and isn’t done yet with its activities there in recent years, Covid being one of them. The darker side of a war between truth and belief in American politics is another example.
Gravity is still on the job
While the EU nations mostly felt inspired that Ukraine was going to survive the Russian assault and that the Russian assault was revealing important Russian military internal weaknesses, there are truths about both sides that will begin to force an acceptance of unwanted realities. Putin’s dreams of restoring a semblance of the former Soviet Union through brutal force will face unwanted realities that his vision can’t control or overcome. For a few months he believed he could defy gravity but gravity only took a holiday; it’s still on the job.
For Ukraine and its supporters, the reality becomes measuring the costs of support and what is now required to make their visions more manifest. Actions speak louder than words and not all of them are in Piscean harmony because while in Ares, Jupiter and Mars are not as interested in the process of imagining. They are seeking resolution, pushing for a clash of realities in order to sort it out and get to what the stronger reality is. It’s not just a question of who has the stronger will, but of what can actually be done - that’s reality. Support of Ukraine from other countries could move from standing by and supplying arms to something more confrontational, more Arian. While this play of nerves might unsettle a lot of people it could also be the shortest route to ending the clash of hopes that’s currently devastating Ukraine and the escalating costs from the Russian military, because it forces the participants and their supporters to deal with realities that in the past couple months they didn’t have to. Jupiter and Mars in Ares are a dramatic departure from their time in the previous few signs, especially when in Pisces.
The climax at the end of April into early May - the transition from Pisces owning center stage to then having to share it with Ares - is a clash of two very different actors in their roles brought out in the open. Jupiter and Mars moving into Ares symbolizes the desire to make the visions of recent months become realities and the willingness to raise the level of drama to whatever is required to make it happen…... because the costs of prolonging the recent state of success/failure are forcing an effort to impose an ending. Many of us will transition from accepting certain realities of recent months to wanting to shape them more. Make things happen.
Ares isn’t great at planning but it excels at forcing issues. It often forces resolution or decisions with unintended consequences because it isn’t a patient planner.
The Sun, Moon and Mercury are joining Uranus and the Moon’s North Nodes in Taurus. These are all factors in facing the costs or paying the bills of recent months. Uranus being the more potent planet in this group brings in the sudden upset, the lightning strike, of bypassing the fancy footwork to find a shortcut to success. It can also bring an ingenious solution which could be deliberate or accidental; either way it serves the over-arching design of evolution from the psyche. There’s an element of something happening out of control with Uranus, however this only applies in our conscious awareness. Unconsciously or from other levels of consciousness Uranus is bringing into manifestation something perfectly in step with who we really are. While we preferred not to deal with things so directly, we likely will ultimately find value in the post Piscean way.
Uranus can be the only way we get some things done because of restraints we placed upon ourselves. Remember though that this group are in Taurus. Uranus according to its nature wants freedom of expression anytime any place. Taurus tethers all energy to the ground, Mother Earth, and insists on any expression having value in supporting life. Taurus attempts to tie Uranus to the ground full time, and make it behave, and for much of its time in Taurus, Uranus will be restrained. When it has moments of occasional release due to the activation of other planets in aspect or simply passing over it, Uranus has a brief opportunity to send out one of its lightning bolts: a sudden shaft of illumination that potentially changes the view of the landscape, changes how we perceive ourselves in the environment. Uranus has a reputation for being somewhere in between tricky and dangerous, because changes we may really want or need come about by a lightning bolt provocation we are not in control of.

Patterns as vibrating frequencies in our psyche
The Crimean War which began under the last Jupiter/Neptune meeting in Pisces in 1856 lasted over two years and resulted in Russia losing to the European powers of the day. It's not accidental that the Piscean dreams of Russia's current leader, with his quasi historically based self-defined Russian pride, would fall into the same pattern as happens when Jupiter inflates Neptune's dreamy aspirations in Pisces for Putin and everyone else.
Patterns are what human behavior is all about and so too with Astrology, mapping the patterns over centuries no less day to day. Patterns of behavior while usually not conscious get repeated, passed on to others, adopted from others, intermingled like instruments in a band. Planetary motions stimulate and modify them and we only become aware of them when they surface as events in our lives. Our narrow immediate focus moves on to other demands and distractions as the patterns continue to be vibrating frequencies in our psyche. So it is with major planetary aspects that can appear to be active for several months, a year or two, even several years or more. Just because we are not conscious of them doesn't mean they are done.
Putin’s Dream vs Compelling Reality
Putin's chart shows aspects bolstering his confidence late last year right up into the present day. Those feeling of confidence lead him to continue to shape his destiny at others’ expense. The Sun, Neptune, Saturn and Mercury in Putin's natal chart in Libra are being fortified by a favorable trine transit now from Saturn moving through Aquarius, moving over his North Nodes this year. This began to have influence last year, and wanes by the Fall of 2022. That doesn't imply that the war lasts that long, but it does imply this is how long it could take as he persists or resists learning what this means in reality - if he can. It means his ongoing attempts to sell his vision to the Russian population.
Jupiter and Neptune conjunct by transit in Pisces is putting air in our balloons. This shifts quickly when Jupiter leaves Pisces and enters Aries, in several weeks. But at present Jupiter/Neptune is in an inconjunct aspect to the same natal Libra cluster in Putin's chart. This inconjunct aspect is going to force reality into the dream. The time will then arrive for a decision compelled by various realities.
Obsession. Putin is his own fall guy.
After seeing the supporting aspects from the Libra cluster in his natal chart and the confidence that it conveys, the key thing most observers of Putin's chart fail to appreciate or factor in is that natal Pluto is on his South Moon's Nodes, opposite his North Nodes which is where Saturn is presently passing over. Saturn is transiting and opposing his natal Pluto in Leo in his 10th house. This has a paper shredder effect on his 10th house image of himself, and the world sees through the fog of his vision. Putin’s natal Pluto on his natal South Nodes is a deep obsession with regaining something perceived to be lost - lost wealth, power or prestige or a desire for god-like power to transform others - when really what's being called for is a transformation of himself, and that is what will be the end result.
It's fascinating that Putin resonates with his native land to the extent that on this anniversary of Jupiter and Neptune meeting in Pisces almost at the exact degree as they did in 1856, he's sowing the seeds and laying down the fertilizer for his undoing, with a “take out the garbage” Pluto accent, at a time when he feels the confidence of the inner planets propping his sense of destiny up. It's a major setup and he is his own fall guy.
Biden and Zelenskyy transits now and soon
By comparison, looking at President Biden's chart, he has a lot of obvious stress in transits to his natal planet placements. It's important to remind ourselves that difficult aspects are meant to prod us to evolve, to rise - not to sink. Frequently charts with challenges produce great breakthroughs.
The leader of Ukraine who is distinguishing himself right now had a challenge in his chart more stressful than at present occurring with the summer of phone calls from former President Trump, attempting to coerce Volodymyr Zelenskyy into implicating then candidate Biden. Zelenskyy was relatively new to his leadership role. Pressure from the President of the United States attempted to manipulate him into manufacturing a criminal investigation into candidate Biden's son in exchange for the release to Ukraine of US Congressionally approved financial support. Zelenskyy had to navigate this in an ethical way and at the same time keep the support of the US government. Zelenskyy has troublesome but less severe issues in his chart at the moment. In a year or so he will have to deal with Pluto opposing his natal Mars and then soon after conjuncting his natal Sun. Those could be violent threats to his vitality.

2022 - The Quantum Journey
We can take control of our reality in 2022 by consciously applying the science of numbers.
-BONUS- Includes a check-in event on June 6th!
Feelings such as “I did something to deserve this,” “I’m bad or dirty,” or “I am not worth it,” are as old as time. To heal these deep-rooted beliefs and feelings takes sensitivity and care on the part of the therapist. Healing might not begin with looking at the incident, but may have to start with healing the inner child or connecting with inner guides, outer spiritual guidance or aspects of the personality that are equipped to face and confront the situation. Often there is cellular DNA and past-life history to heal as well. Sexual abuse, including being both the victim and the perpetrator, is often passed on from generation to generation. A skilled and knowledgeable therapist can help the client to navigate through this complex web and achieve a state of true inner strength and peace, with love and respect for the self.
For me, one of the great blessings of facilitating Alchemical Hypnotherapy seasons with clients of abuse is the inter-generational healing that occurs. It is a feeling of profound joy when ancestors come forward with gratitude for the client, as the healing and release of the abusive patterns frees those who have passed over to the other side as well.
While this article was written specifically about women, I would like to note here that acts of sexual abuse and violation is also carried out against boys and men. These acts may be committed by either men or women.

Much has been made of the 800 years since the planets Jupiter and Saturn were so close together (1226 AD) and the 600 years since they were last in Aquarius (1405 AD), and while these planets come together every 20 years, they are part of larger 200 year cycles having to do with the elements: air, fire, water and earth.
When 1226 A.D. rolled around it was the first in a wave of Air sign conjunctions that led civilization out of the Dark Ages and into the Renaissance. Both the 1226 A.D. conjunction and the 1405 A.D. conjunction were in the future/forward looking sign of Aquarius.
After that they were together every 20 years in Water signs for roughly 200 years, then the conjunctions moved on to Fire signs and then Earth (the year 2000 conjunction was in Taurus), then Air (2020, Aquarius).
The New Age media is pushing the Aquarian age angle because the conjunction today is at 0° Aquarius, the beginning degree of Aquarius. But it's also the first of a series of Saturn/Jupiter conjunctions in Aquarius/Air signs for the next 180 years.
This conjunction is being compared to the Star of Bethlehem because in 06 BC, Saturn and Jupiter were together in Pisces, heralding the Piscean Age.
People sometimes think the Procession of the Ages is like a light switch being turned on and suddenly it’s the Renaissance, or the Age of Aquarius. But in reality the transition between astrological ages is more like the incremental process of going from night to day, and there's at least a 200 year overlap (try 500!) between Ages. An Astrological Age is 2160 years, and at some point the Piscean Age leads into the Aquarian age, but it's not as simple as saying the Piscean Age is from 0 A.D. until 2160 A.D. (btw: 2160 years × 12 astrological signs = 25,920 years, the Astrological Great Year which is pretty much the same 26,000 years as a Mayan cycle.)
To me the Aquarian age starts in 1962 with an Aquarian boost in February when all the inner planets (the Moon through Saturn) find themselves in Aquarius on February 4. Uranus went into Aquarius from 1995 to 2003, Neptune was there from 1998 until 2012 or so. Pluto is in Aquarius from 2023 until 2043.
Today's conjunction IS a Big Deal, and there's a few more Saturn/Jupiter conjunctions in Aquarius between now and 2199 A.D. That date is probably a good indicator of the Aquarian Age being well under way.
After all the Paradigm shifting Capricorn energy of 2020 I welcome the Age of Aquarius! It will take us out of the Age of Scientific Materialism, where we’ve been for some time.
Saturn is traditional and Jupiter is expansive. Remember, HOW the sky affects you has everything to do with your individual chart, so how the Saturn/Jupiter conjunction will affect you depends upon where 0 degrees Aquarius is in your birth chart and what planets/houses (areas of your life) may be involved. And what better way to find this out than with a personal reading!
I'm presently only doing phone readings (most of my readings have been over the phone in the past few years anyway), and I am available 7 days a week for private astrology consultations and psychic sessions.
Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!!

For many months leading up to Y2K there was uncertainty, lots of it, in the air and on the ground as to whether the computer technology would handle the change in numbering sequence. IT people slaved over updates, some people made pretty good money on books and programs selling either doom and gloom or “protection” from the chaos that was sure to come. It was an exciting time. I experienced a fun event at work.
At the time, I was employed in a regional office of a large insurance company. When a call went out for volunteers to work a few hours New Years Day, January 1, 2000, I put up my hand. For a single mom the money looked terrific and more than that, hey, it was historic. They wanted one person from each area of claims management and administration to “test drive” the computer systems on Jan 1 by setting up a brand new claim - a real claim for a real person - and thus produce a check with that extra special date on it. I got to be the employee to set up the actual payment on the company’s financial software system. And the next morning if all went well a crisp new check should land on my desk, all ready to pop into the outgoing mail.
All the volunteers were given a pager, just in case an IT emergency required us to run there in the middle of the night. But no such fun, and on the morning of Jan 1st, 2000 I went into work, happy about the rare opportunity for up-front parking, an echo at every step inside as the building was essentially empty of staff, got to my desk and processed the claim. That means keying in salary amounts, rates, codes, any offsets – calculations and numbers on a screen. Hit Enter. That was it. Done. Nothing unusual happened. (A little disappointing.)
The next morning, back into work exchanging “Happy New Year’s” greetings with everyone else and sure enough when I arrived at my little grey cubby, there on the desk was THE CHECK. Everyone would be pleased, most especially the IT people I was sure. Following the mandated process, I opened the claim file on the computer to make sure the check was issued to the right person, the correct amount, date, and so forth. All was perfect. Then I noticed something. The amount of the check was $381.62. What?!
Working with numbers constantly can become like a sixth sense. (If you are one of those people, you already know where this story is going.) To confirm what my little sixth sense was saying, I pulled the hand calculator over and added the digits in the amount of the check, one at a time.
PS There will be some WAY more interesting magical stories shared by the group at an upcoming event online:

What am I talking about?
Dreams happen on another plane, the plane C. J. Jung would call the Collective Unconscious. Some call it ether, aboriginal Australian people call it Jukurrpa or Dreamtime; others call it Akasha, or the Akashic field.
Did you know that if people are awakened three nights in a row at the beginning of REM (Rapid Eye Movement) – depriving them of their dream time - they will start hallucinating after three days? REM sleep is that time late in the night or early morning when dreaming happens.
We dream every night. If we didn’t, we would experience psychosis. When people say, “I don’t dream” it is because they don’t remember their dreams. But you can if you want, and you will thanks to DreamHarvesting®.
Remembering dreams is only the beginning. Dreams have something to tell you, something important for the wholeness of your psyche.
Are you ready for the conversation?

I would say the thing science lacks and astrology provides is to view the sun as part of a whole body, the solar system. It's one organ in the spirit body. Instead of the medieval notion that the sun revolves around the earth, which was displaced by science observing that it's the other way around, for humanity in fact it may be more relevant that metaphorically the sun does revolve around the earth and our imbalances in our collective psychology are manifesting on the sun. Solar storms are a result of disruptive chemistry on any of the planets in the solar system or they may be a registry of the instability of our collective psyche here on earth. Evolutionary indigestion.
It's similar to an unhealthy person who thinks their kidneys are not working properly and get kidney treatment, but in fact the kidney is not working because of another organ which is not being treated. The whole picture for the solar system is likely that other parts of the organism, other planets, are more involved in the convulsions on the sun and it isn't solely because of craziness on Earth. It's hard to tell intellectually because we don't know very much about the nature of the psyche on other planets in the way that we believe we know about life on Earth. We don't see physical life on other planets but there is life in the psyche, whether we see it with physical eyes or not. The whole organism is going through a transformation as the Pluto Jupiter Saturn Mars group ending their climatic year, handing off the drama to Jupiter Saturn Mars and Uranus, another epochal planetary aspect grouping that represents a cycle of several centuries.
The part that Uranus plays in our nature isn't as tangible as its descendants in myth, Saturn and Jupiter. Uranus the primordial sky god is the original wielder of the lightning, connecting remote aspects of consciousness eventually into our awareness. It's the internet when compared to a newspaper. Potentially the Tower card of the Major Arcana. The sky god slashing through the restricting structures of Saturn and the belief in progress that must come with Jupiter's ever expanding desires. Of course these principles of our collective conscious body all work simultaneously, we think of them in more archetypal ways but they are always in some kind of relationship. We don't perceive the more abstract realms of Uranus or Neptune. Neptune is too subtle, Uranus hides behind the curtain that its descendant gods put there and only occasionally sends out a flash of power like a bolt of lightning. That's about all we can take.
To be more present in our consciousness, the sky god in the ether, Uranus, will have Mars conjunct it next year. Mars is far less abstract in human consciousness, and is unfortunately very able to deliver the disrupting presence of Uranus into human life. Jupiter and Saturn lined up for the bowling ball to hit both with one strike will be in Aquarius, which is Uranus’ native home sign. This emphasizes the intensity of the tension and likely area of life that will be affected. Uranus and Mars will be in Taurus, the symbolic sign of Mother Nature and a grounding in Earth influence for electrical Uranus. Grounding is good but everyone knows that lightning often goes from the earth to the thundercloud in the sky because it must to complete a circuit. Uranus will not remain docile by being grounded in Taurus. It will be allied with Mars in a conjunction off and on all next year. Mars’ way of doing things armed with great grandfather's lightning bolt is usually pretty rough. Allied with its great grandfather, the duo of Mars and Uranus will rejoice in violent sudden shifts to force changes with the rare alliance of Jupiter and Saturn.
Any comfort that comes from the shift out of Pluto Jupiter Saturn and Mars as this year ends is going to provide a false and short lived period of relief. Mars and Uranus will aim to remind us all that all the trappings of Saturn's structure and Jupiter's expansion of consciousness must be realized as levels of existence built on the unstructured unexpanded formlessness of Uranus, the sky god who hasn't gone away.
I expect sudden violent interruptions outbursts a few times next year. I expect technology to be interrupted and cut off periodically. Uranus wants us to be caught off guard in order to reveal a variety of things we are otherwise able to ignore. When the lightning flashes in the dark of night for a brief second you can see everything.

In this time of uncertainty and grief, things that have been unresolved at an individual level pop up on the background of unresolved collective difficulties.
Many people are afraid of their own thoughts, and of their ambivalence. There can be a desire to be clear, straightforward and self-directed but when things around us are unstable, our inner stability is tested.
Dreaming is not an escape, it is holistic thinking. Dreaming is the most important form of thinking, something both Freud and Jung agreed upon, because it gives us a different point of view. What we had forgotten, omitted to look at, turned away from, dismissed or despised, insists on being paid attention to because dreams are the language by which we become whole.
People frequently say they can’t remember their dreams. It’s often because the necessities of everyday life have shaped them into living-as-survival, living as self-defense against potential dangers. It’s often because they haven’t been taught to see reality from multiple perspectives.
Dreams encourage us to examine other perspectives, other ways to look at a situation, a problem, an opportunity, or a conflict.
Dreams teach us to think for ourselves, because their material is a symbiosis between what we have learned from others and from our own experiences, and our own individual make-up, feelings, perceptions and intuitions that are unique to us and that can’t be imitated or copied.
In a time of social crisis, people often have dreams with a similar theme.
This points to the porous nature of our psyche, to the shared space into which dreaming happens, a space where boundaries between in and out, you and me blur. In this psychic field, individual dreaming and collective dreaming merge, and we can find again our sense of belonging.
In a time when we are forced into physical isolation, when our family, friends, or lovers might be seen as potential threats to our own physical existence, our values are therefore turned upside down. Dreaming together propels us into a sphere where we exchange, communicate, and share on a etheric plane where we find companionship, where we can be heard and where we feel our interconnectedness.
The dreamer and their witness need one another to contain strange, funny, disturbing, silly or prospective thoughts.

While some myths and metaphors are universally understood, the symbols, messages, colors and shapes of your dreams can only be understood by YOU. It is as though the myriads of associations created in your brain, like a network of spider webs through your unique personal history, have a unique path to be retraced. You are the only one to be able to do this. Hence, we speak of Dream Harvesting®. Dream dictionaries or glossaries have compiled thousands of possible interpretations of symbols, animals, emblems, shapes and more. Yet, “they do not attend to the subtle personal associations and feelings which are key to understanding YOUR dream.“(Williams, 2019, p. 120).
Joseph Campbell saw dreams as “our own private personal myths“(1993, p. 19). They may not make sense to anybody else than you, and you are the only one who can decipher their meaning. It is true that people who are versed in mythology and universal themes, such as analysts, can guide you towards understanding their message, but even they, as I do in this workshop, act as midwives to your own birthing.
Regarding Dream analysis, Jung saw it “less as a technique than as a dialectical process between personalities (1961b par. 492). When Dream Harvesting®, we practice conversation rather than analysis. This encompasses, among other things, the art of listening, the art of putting oneself in somebody else’s shoes, respect, patience, responding rather than reacting and knowing how to ask questions without frightening the “other” (in this case, another inner personality).

As you prepare for our workshop, it’s important that you approach Dream Harvesting® in the same manner.
Rituals are powerful. They enable our soma, the physical dimension of our being, to capture our intention through deeds and actions enacted in the physical world that translate the direction of our mind (intention).
Approaching the dream world requires a certain amount of reverence, or respect. If you ask somebody a question you don’t turn your back to them, or hopefully you don’t swipe your phone and read something else while they are answering you. You make space by choosing a place propitious for conversation (not too noisy or crowded) and you listen, not only with your auditory sense, but with all your being (your posture, your eyes reading body language, and even your sense of smell…)
Dreams help us live our lives to the fullest extent and encompass more than the ego - the limited part of us that gives us a sense of identity as we face the external world.
Dreams connect us with our Self, which encompasses the unconscious - that is, everything outside of the direct awareness of the mind (somatic experiences, spiritual experiences, feelings and emotions, and more…) Dreams often express what can’t be expressed verbally (through words, which are only one kind of symbol.)
To prepare oneself to this symbolic expression it’s important to cleanse the doors of perception. That is, to cleanse all our senses including what has been called a “sixth sense” (intuition).
Ask yourself what is an important question for you in this time of your life, this week, this day. Then ask your dream world for an answer during the night. Ask as you would ask your most trusted friend for their most genuine insight. Just like that.

All was truly Magical.
There was a friendly feel to their visitations. I hoped with anticipation that they would show up, and in turn they replied by giving me a growing depth of photos showing movement, and later on, believe it or not, purpose.
I was able to actually see the “other side.” I was able to actually interact with the “other side.”
This was all done in a safe, comfortable way. It was amazing. Knowing they were showing up for me, for my camera, gave me a sense of connection beyond this Earth -- and quite a bit of joy and fun along the way.
Orbs can be picked up on regular film too, although you have to wait to see the results of your photos. I have 35mm pictures of orbs, yet I’m not patient anymore and now want to use a digital camera. For fun, go back and take a look at old film pictures you may have. You'd be surprised to know how many people do this only to find they had captured orbs all along, but just didn't realize.
There is much more to my orb story. Over the years I have experimented and questioned, examined and explored. I've developed a process that I use for myself personally and for clients. For the first time I’m putting this information out online in a live presentation on the Bridges Academy platform. My desire is for others to take what I've developed and use it for themselves -- or to use this information to spark their imagination to create their own process for connection. There is not one way to make this connection using the camera. There are as many ways as there are people who give it a try. Yet having my information and experiences to reflect upon may make the getting started easier and may open people to more than they would normally think possible.
We are truly in a Magical time. There is Magic all around us if we will let it in. Opportunities abound to feel a connection to the Something More, and taking pictures of orbs is a simple yet profound way to gain the feeling of not being alone, of being recognized, and, may I even say, being loved.

However, Dream Harvesting® is concerned with a conversation with dreams that are experienced in deep sleep (REM phase). Although many of us may think dreams are a waste of our time and attention, dreams don’t ever waste our time. As expert Robert Johnson says, “Even a short insignificant dream tries to tell us something that we need to know.”
There is in each of us a guiding principle (Johnson calls it the psychopomp) that is there to help us function in the outer world and know how to respond in a way that is aligned to our best benefit, that is to say, in a way where our intentions, values, and ideals are enacted through our actions.
Because we are so attached to the “story line”- the events that happen, that we read about, the so called “information” - we forget that what makes our reality isn’t so much the events per se, but the way you or I experience them. In this way, every dream is a portrait of the dreamer, as much as every “event” as we recount it is a portrait of who experiences it.
We need to go deeper, look into the dream as a mirror, to find out who we are. The aim of every dream is to bring each of us back towards our center, our point of equilibrium from which we are free to go in the needed direction (needed for us). Dream Harvesting® takes trust, it takes questioning, genuinely not being afraid to surrender momentarily efficiency or smart thinking; it takes wanting to know what it is that we do not know about ourselves that is exactly what we need to be in equilibrium in our lives.

Dreams are some of the richest and more accessible ways our unconscious establishes communication with us. As Greg Bogart judiciously points out, “Dreams spring from an underground stream that guides and heals” 
Many people either don’t pay attention to their dreams or think dreams are nonsensical because their language is out of reach, deprived of a continuous line and of the logic we are accustomed to. They take a holistic approach encompassing the language of the senses, somatic experiencing, feeling exploration, and word association. Although they can be intimidating, puzzling and in some cases even frightening, dreams invite us to open to a fuller mode of interaction, and that is what I will share and practice with you during this workshop.

Many spiritual and mystical traditions include an understanding that there is a silver thread or cord, a conduit that connects us in various ways: to each other, to our astral body, to the Earth, even to our possessions.
A quick research online today found past and present day reference to the cord in Hindu, Judeo-Christian (see Ecclesiastes), Taosim, the Norns of ancient Norse tradition, ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans, ancient India, traditions from every continent on the Earth including The Dream Walking of First Nation North Americans, and the ancient spiritual tradition of Hawaii. The kahuna of Hawaii call it an aka cord.
The cord is described as a silvery shaft of light, or as a sticky, stretchy, energized substance. Various traditions determine the cord to be attached to our physical body either at the heart, the umbilical, the crown chakra or the root chakra.
It’s widely understood that knowledge is more valuable than mere true belief. Now that I know that aka cords are a conduit between the internal aspects of me, it’s faster and easier to connect within.
In the Fundamentals of Huna course, we learn a “prayer-action” process that is actually an effective step-by-step process of manifestation. Every day now I practice the Huna method of gathering life force energy (chi or mana) in order to create what I want or need in life, transferring it to my high self along those aka cords. Several possibilities, including some that previously seemed unattainable, have come to fruition.
Meanwhile, I’ve barely scratched the itch to learn about Huna under Kumu Michael Longshore’s guidance, and will return to the course for more.
I knew of a place not far from my home for the rose quartz to enjoy an undisturbed retreat. Overgrown by trees and barely visible alongside a path lined with trees, was a broken cedar rail fence. I reached in under what was left of the fence, found a soft spot, dug a hole, tucked in the rose quartz and perhaps most importantly - marked the spot. About a month later, I returned, excitement increasing with each step as I got closer and closer to the spot where the rose quartz lay in wait for me. Kneeling, I uncovered it from the earth, scooped it up to my heart in both hands, feeling an ecstatic surge in welcoming the rose quartz into my life. And then, suddenly came the feeling of being watched. I looked up.
So, back to the crystal skull.
Despite being drawn to them for various reasons from time to time over the years, I’d never had or worked with a crystal skull. While reading Joe Mancini’s “how to” booklet called Crystal Skulls: Old/New Tools for Transformation, I understood why I’d never brought one home: Crystal skulls need special care, handling and preparation. It was imperative for me to read a training manual. So, now feeling ready I decided to keep an eye out for one in my travels.
About a month later, Patrick and I decided on a whim to visit a favorite ‘new age’ shop, as a break from routine. He saw several in a display case and called me over. After some back and forth as to which one I might like, I chose the skull that we both liked the most. It was rose quartz, so fitting somehow. Brought it home, and buried it just outside the house in a soft spot under some trees.
About 10 days later, unexpectedly, a crew of workers arrived to make repairs outside the house, disturbing the spot where the crystal was snoozing, ultimately making it impossible to find. I looked everywhere in the vicinity of the original location. It did seem odd that it would be gone, but there was nothing to be done about it. Maybe it would turn up some day.
It did. Pat saw it peeking out of the earth a couple of weeks later, not far from where I’d put it, and called me to come and see. With an ecstatic happy feeling, I picked it up saying, “There you are!!”, holding it up to receive Pat’s grin too.
Obviously, the crystal skull had wanted us both there for that moment, just like when it found us in the store.
Then we moved house. It was packed SO carefully. And will turn up when it’s ready. Then I’ll ask it to smile for the camera, and place the photo here.
May I tell you a story?
Immediately my father and I headed back to the island. Once we arrived at the shore I found myself watching our homes burn to the ground. There were many victims lying here and there; some were injured, some were deceased and I felt a deep sorrow and pain down in the pit of my stomach.
“If you can see your path laid out in front of you step by step, you know it’s not your path. Your own path you make with every step you take. That’s why it’s your path.” – Joseph Campbell
You Are an Unlimited Being
“By taking back your own mind you create a better and brighter life for yourself. You will also light the way for others.”
You, Getting to Know You
“Next, bring in a memory of an event or person that caused you to feel badly, angry or distressed in some way. Again with eyes closed allow yourself to sink into this memory. Now notice what expression you have, notice your body’s posture and pay attention to the stomach and heart areas. This time you might be aware of an angry or sad expression while the stomach and heart areas may feel contracted or tight. Take a moment to be in the energy of this difficult memory and feel how it feels. Now let that go.
“As you begin to bring awareness into your body and recognize how you feel when you are in a high-energy vibrational state, you more easily notice when you are not.”
If there are any areas in your life that you desire to improve, the Train Your Brain and Change Your Life course is designed to help you to do just that.
“It doesn’t matter what your past has been, where you are now or what you believe; all you need is the desire to live a more fulfilled life, the willingness to be open to change and a commitment to doing the work. One thing is true – whatever you think and feel is true, will be true for you.” - Linda Baker
Are online courses the right option for you?
6 frequently asked questions and 8 reasons to get excited about online courses
1. Are online classes an 'easy' route? Is the content easier?
It’s true that many online courses offer flexibility to learn at your own convenience, but that doesn’t change the amount of work you put in. You still have the same amount of work — just without the formal classroom setting.
The flexibility of online classes can be extremely helpful to busy adults, but that same freedom means that self motivation is vital to your success. For live online classes, it’s up to you to clear your schedule for the allotted class time, planning ahead to avoid distractions in your environment during class and keep yourself on track with the group. Often the live classes (and the Q+A segments) are recorded for you to replay at a later time which can be a great help if you’re not able to attend at the last minute, however you will need to play the recording and do any assignments before the next class.
2. Can I actually do better in online classes?
Online lectures are a great option if you tend to feel lost in the crowd of a classroom. Recordings afford the ability to pause and take notes or even re-play parts you didn’t quite understand the first time. Plus, you can always reach out to your instructor for one-on-one help in various ways (like email, text or perhaps a private Facebook page) to ask questions about material you didn’t understand.
3. I’ve been hearing that time management is important.
Procrastination is a slippery slope that can affect your outcome negatively. It’s important to stay organized and follow a schedule because, as in any class setting, it can be difficult to catch up once you fall too far behind.
In your planning, consider the amount of time you’ll need to spend to study or prep for class. Additionally, many online courses include required reading lists or videos to watch in addition to the time you spend in the live class. Review the course description carefully, and email the instructor if you have any questions.
4. I love group projects. Are they even possible with online courses?
5. What about making connections, and friends?
Yes. We recommend that you make an effort to get to know some of your online classmates and your instructor. Outside of class there are numerous online services (like personal messaging) that provide excellent ways to interact and network with classmates, so be sure to take advantage of that and don’t hesitate to make the first move and reach out.
6. I’m not familiar with the technology. Is it complicated to connect?
It’s easy. You can connect via any device with an internet connection. Bridges will provide you with all the contact information you need to connect easily and if for any reason you have problems, we will help. Many of our instructors use a service called Zoom for their live classes. With Zoom there’s nothing to join or download, just clicking on a simple link will connect you.
Why all the excitement about online courses?
No need to drop all those other responsibilities that you enjoy (kids, jobs, commitments.) And there’s no need to choose family or work over education; all is possible with online classes.
