Solstice blessings to ALL. We find ourselves moving more and more into a new way of being, and this Solstice is offering up to us a time to renew ourselves as we fill ourselves up with more strength and courage to embrace all that is longing to come into our lives. It is also a time to honor and revitalize the Sacred Masculine within all of us, and to balance and nurture it with our Divine Feminine presence. We all have this need to balance the feminine and masculine within, and now is a great time to utilize this ability.

No matter what was, and what is before us, we stay strong and centered upon our trust in the greater plan that always has our highest good at heart. Trust and faith in ourselves, others, and the greater plan, are important.

Wednesday, December 21st, marks the Solstice celebration for all people (winter solstice in the Northern Hemisphere and Summer Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere). How can we bless ourselves, our lives, and that of others even more this season? How can we heal more, and help others heal and forgive during this time?


“Faith is being sure of what we hope for, and certain of what we do not see.” -Hebrews 11:1

We can begin by acknowledging the challenges that have come forth in our lives. On this day, we can honor the anchoring in of more light as we too can honor the places where darkness has come forth. This has been a challenging time for many, and when we begin to accept and embrace what has been, we can then fully embrace the wealth of healing and love that is calling us.

The dark moments have been here to teach us, to bring things out from under the shadows, to help us grow and heal by revealing that which has been hidden from us. This is often referred to as our shadow side, and it comes forth to help us transform. It can bring forth such deep hurt and pain, but through that it also gives us an opportunity to heal something and move forth into more light and love.

Moments, that feel so very beyond our control, are ultimately here to bring us together and renew our faith.

The moments of light, and there are so many moments of light, are here to illuminate that which shines so bright within and without. We feel it, and others feel it too. It is us in our most beautiful state and nature, and it is the world as we most love to see and cherish it. No matter what happens in our personal lives or in the world, let’s be reminded of the strength of the light.


We can set an intention today, and everyday for what we desire to bring into our lives. When we write down this intention, and hold it dear to our hearts, it begins to bloom. First, we feel it inside our hearts, then we see it start to take shape and form in our outer world. What kind of intention are you ready to set for your next step in life as you move forward into greater personal power? Are you ready to listen to your heart, and follow your dreams?

“When your intention is clear, so is the way.” -Alan Cohen

We can commit to allowing the challenges of our lives to bring forth all that we need to heal. We can allow it, and let it come forth with compassion. We can see it as our teacher, and we can bless it for it is blessing us with a chance to move through yet another hidden pain that wants to be healed in order to enlighten us more.

Are you ready? I am ready. So many of us are ready. Let’s anchor in more light and healing this season. Let’s share our light with the world, and when it gets painful, let’s remember our true nature and send deep love and healing to our hearts and the world. This may be the turning point, that brings balance back into our lives. What are you ready to transition into?


“Promise me you’ll always remember:

You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.”

-Christopher Robin to Winnie-the-Pooh (A. A. Milne)

We may be faced with challenges, but with love, compassion and kindness we can survive in strength. It is time to bless and release all fear, doubt, judgment, hurt, worry, and pain. Only allow love and inspiration to bless your body, mind and spirit.

Let’s affirm:

If there is fear or hatred, it’s time to love.
If there is doubt, it’s time to trust.
If there is judgment, it’s time to accept.
If there is hurt, it’s time to forgive.
If there is aggravation, it’s time for peace.
Please add more to this list as you embrace how the energy has challenged you, only to lead you forth stronger.
This time of challenges and darkness being revealed to all ultimately helps us in illuminating and sustaining the light while looking at what we truly value. Our connection to the divine in us and in all, and the love we share is the most important thing we can gift ourselves and others.
I am healing. I am healed.
You are healing. You are healed.
We are healing. We are healed.
Let’s continue to heal, and move more and more into the light that is all. When I heal, you heal, and we heal. As we continue to move into a deeper awareness and consciousness, it is important that we take one another by the hand and offer that vision to the person across from us. We all have the strength to continue to shift into the light.
Wishing all a blessed Solstice. May all our hearts open more to the love that is what we are here to give and receive. May we all feel and express Gratitude for the blessings in our lives. Let’s open our hearts to people this Holiday Season and throughout the coming year. Strength and courage to all. Peace be with you, peace be with me, and peace be with all.
The following article, and books, I have felt called to share at this time. What are you feeling called to now?

6 Year Old Finds Fossil In Family Garden That May be 488 Million Years Old

Children have a natural fascination with rocks, with many of us having spent some days as children standing awe-struck at our museums or science centers looking at dazzling arrays of stones, or learning about the different types that can be found out our local beaches, parks, or hiking trails.

However, none of us managed to make the sort of discovery that one young boy in the U.K. did.

Siddak Singh Jhamat, known as Sid, found a fossil in his garden that dates back millions of years.

Sid found the fossil in his backyard garden in the town of Walsall using a simple fossil-hunting kit he received as a gift, reports the BBC.

His father Vish Singh was then able to identify the fossil as a horn corral that dates back 251 to 488 million years with the help of a Facebook fossil group.

“I was just digging for worms and things like pottery and bricks and I just came across this rock which looked a bit like a horn, and thought it could be a tooth or a claw or a horn, but it was actually a piece of coral which is called horn coral,” Sid explained.

“I was really excited about what it really was.”

His father Vish added:

“We were surprised he found something so odd-shaped in the soil… he found a horn coral, and some smaller pieces next to it, then the next day he went digging again and found a congealed block of sand.

“In that there were loads of little molluscs and sea shells, and something called a crinoid, which is like a tentacle of a squid, so it’s quite a prehistoric thing.”

The father believes that the distinctive markings on the fossil make it a Rugosa coral, meaning it could be up to 488 million years old.

“The period that they existed from was between 500 and 251 million years ago, the Paleozoic Era,” Vish said.

“England at the time was part of Pangea, a landmass of continents. England was all underwater as well… that’s quite significant expanse of time.”

Researchers Find 50,000-Year-Old Frozen Body of Extinct Woolly Rhino in Siberia

Researchers in Siberia have stumbled upon the 50,000 year-old remains of a rare woolly rhinoceros that was trapped in permafrost.

The remains of the woolly rhino were excavated from the Abyisky district of the Sakha Republic. The rhino was first discovered by a local in Siberia named Alexei Savin, Business Insider reported.

Savvin stumbled upon the remarkable find walking near the Tirekhtyakh River in Yakutia, Siberia last August.

It’s worth noting that this woolly rhino was found close to the site where a previous baby woolly rhino named Sasha was discovered back in the year 2014. Woolly Rhinos were once believed to have been prevalent in Europe, Russia and northern Asia thousands upon thousands of years ago until they ended up extinct.

Paleontologist Albert Protopopov of the Academy of Sciences of the Sakha Republic unveiled that the baby woolly rhino would have been approximately three to four years old when it died presumably from drowning.

The only other woolly rhino thus far that has been discovered in these regions — Sasha — was dated to be from around 34,000 years ago. However, Protopopov suggests that the newly discovered body could be anywhere from 20,000 to 50,000 years old.

However, despite the body being there for so long according to Protopopov “among other things, part of the internal organs are preserved, which in the future will make it possible to study in more detail how the species ate and lived.”

Protopopov further added, “Earlier, not even the bone remains of individuals of this age were found, not to mention the preserved carcasses of animals. As a rule, these were either cubs or adults.”

A fellow paleontologist Valery Plotnikov from the Academy of Sciences further adds, “We have learned that woolly rhinoceroses were covered in very thick hair. Previously, we could judge this only from rock paintings discovered in France. Now, judging by the thick coat with the undercoat, we can conclude that the rhinoceroses were fully adapted to the cold climate very much from a young age.”

Isaac Newton’s Secret “Burnt” Notes Included Theory That Great Pyramids Predicted Apocalypse

Sir Isaac Newton, one of the most famous scientists of recorded history, left behind a large body of work that is still vital in our understanding of the world today. However, as with many public intellectuals, he also had plenty of work that was never shared with the public, even after his death.

Now, for the first time ever, some of these unpublished notes are being auctioned off, and these notes contain some of his most wild theories, and includes his thoughts on the occult, alchemy, and biblical apocalypse theory. Newton was known to dabble in the more esoteric realms of study, but very little written evidence remains about his specific thoughts on mystical topics.

Some of the remaining manuscript notes are currently being auctioned by Sotheby’s. The notes have been through a lot, and are obviously burned. The auctioneers claim that the notes were damaged in a fire that is believed to have been started by a candle that was accidentally toppled by Newton’s dog, Diamond.

According to the auction listing, “These notes are part of Newton’s astonishingly complex web of interlinking studies – natural philosophy, alchemy, theology – only parts of which he ever believed were appropriate for publication. It is not surprising that he did not publish on alchemy, since secrecy was a widely-held tenet of alchemical research, and Newton’s theological beliefs, if made public, would have cost him (at least) his career.”

The notes currently have a leading bid of £280,000, the equivalent of about $375,000.

In the notes, Newton speaks on some far-out topics that would surprise modern thinkers. For example, Newton’s notes include a theory that ancient Egypt’s Great Pyramid of Giza predicted the apocalypse. While it is unclear what logic he used to get to his conclusion, the theory began with his study of how the pyramids were designed according to an ancient Egyptian unit of measurement called the royal cubit.

While studying the pyramids and the cubit, Newton believed he developed an insight into sacred geometry, which somehow aligned with the apocalypse predictions in the bible.

“He was trying to find proof for his theory of gravitation, but in addition the ancient Egyptians were thought to have held the secrets of alchemy that have since been lost. Today, these seem disparate areas of study – but they didn’t seem that way to Newton in the 17th century,” Gabriel Heaton, Sotheby’s manuscript specialist, told The Guardian.

“It’s a wonderful confluence of bringing together Newton and these great objects from classical antiquity which have fascinated people for thousands of years. The papers take you remarkably quickly straight to the heart of a number of the deepest questions Newton was investigating,” Heaton added.

Interest in alchemy and mysticism was not unusual for serious scholars at the time, in fact, it was recognized as a legitimate field of scientific study.

“The idea of science being an alternative to religion is a modern set of thoughts. Newton would not have believed that his scientific work could undermine religious belief. He was not trying to disprove Christianity – this is a man who spent a long time trying to establish the likely time period for the biblical apocalypse. That’s why he was so interested in the pyramids,” Heaton said.
