September 2022 Ascension Energies Update

September 2022’s theme: The Preparation

September Keywords:  Psychic Anchoring, Divine Direction, Mental Relaxation

Hello Awakened Soul,

Lately, I have been obsessed with sand dollars. The other day, I bought a sand dollar necklace and a month ago a large metal sand dollar for the wall on my porch. I am suddenly conscious of them on signs around the beautiful beach town of Parksville, where I now spend part of my time. There is something about the sand dollar that is speaking to what is being experienced in this present moment. I go through phases like this where I am drawn to nature symbols and I realize that they mirror where we are in our current collective healing journey. All is connected in the wheel of life and we live in a sacred world order. Our environment speaks to us in these kinds of ecological metaphors and if we take the time to seek deeper reflection there is spiritual wisdom that presents itself.  

Scientists can age a sand dollar by counting the growth rings on the plates of the exoskeleton. Sand dollars are a rich reddish brown to purple and usually live six to 10 years. When one finds a sand dollar on the beach it is the bleached dead remnant of an extraordinary creature that uses its spines to move flatly along the sand, or drives itself edgewise into the sand as needed. (Source: Monterey Bay Aquarium). Legends say they are mermaid money or currency used in Atlantis, the mythical, utopian, undersea city. 

A well-circulated poem about sand dollars based on Christian lore tells of the flower shape representing the poinsettia and the holes depicting the wounds in Jesus. The star in the center of the petals suggests the star over Bethlehem. When broken apart, the five parts of the mouth each look like tiny white doves, a symbol of peace on earth. (Source)

Overall the sand dollar is a slow mover, sifting sand, slowly digesting food and adapting to the ebb and flow of the ocean currents to thrive. It is known as the “master of its environment”.

Psychospiritually, sand dollar’s vibrational energy supports us when we are struggling to take responsibility for lives, to learn how we may be feeding the self-sabotage energy within, and to slowly digest and discover the core patterns that are responsible for the creation of it in the first place. I mentioned that last month we are Transcending the Victim archetype, and this month we are gaining deeper traction to transform our old limiting realities and relationship dynamics.

We are also being prepared for a DNA Higher Mind upgrade in October. This is a heavy, fatiguing and sometimes painfully grief-filled process; to see how we have unconsciously fed our own fear, limitations, scarcity and misery.  

This month the Sage Archetype is nudging us to become more acutely aware of our disharmonies/patterns/symptoms and is helped by the introspective energies of Mercury Retrograde (see Cosmic events), taking us for a deeper dive into existential revelation. The Sage shines a light on our past choices and personalized ways of making a mark in our lives. It illuminates us to shatter illusions that drain our Vital Force. This archetype also encourages us to extend our higher senses and trust ourselves; it is our psychic home. 

By harnessing The Sage archetype and grounding ourselves in the Earth Mother archetype (which we worked on embodying last month), our inner wisdom brings the next stage of our life purpose and life direction into focus. 


For how to optimally engage these incoming energies, please watch my video.

In love, authenticity and service,

Cold and Flu Products to support your Ascension Process

It’s that time of year again - the body is more prone to illness as the Veil thins and the weather turns cooler in the northern hemisphere. And with the tremendous DNA Higher Mind upgrade at the end of October, our bodies are going through tremendous cellular changes. 

You may be feeling this as dreams become even more vivid, sleep erratic, timelines are blending, and your brain is shifting to embody more Lunar Divine Feminine consciousness. This is further complicating the normal cold and flu season, as many are already going into the Autumn feeling heavy and exhausted from the summer.

September’s Ascension energies will continue to challenge our adrenals, our digestion, and the endocrine and immune systems, so I will have monthly specials on certain immune products to support you through this upgrade process!  

Profound Immune tincture - A rich blend of herbs and mushrooms that has actions that support the immune system at the deepest level. The properties of the blend are especially effective at preventing infections and rebuilding the immune system to recover, or especially in rebuilding the body following pregnancy and delivery. Dosage 2 to 4 dropperfuls daily. For children 5 years to Adult. 

Thrive Immune tincture - This tasty liquid blend of intentionally-formulated herbs and spices is designed to support the body against illness and the effects of stress.  Chock full of vitamin C and antioxidants, it also contains antiviral, antibacterial, and other immune-boosting ingredients. Great for the whole family!  Dosage: 1 dropperful twice daily, reduce in half for children under 12 years. For children 5 years to Adult. Also available in a tea version. 

Vitamin D Spray - This is a great tasting, orange flavoured, Vitamin D spray that all my clients love. Special note: Those that have thyroid conditions often have low Vitamin D levels so make sure you have enough Vitamin D if you have any thyroid issues. 

Gut Heal Blend - a cooling blend of herbal tinctures that heal, nourish, lessen inflammation, bloating, feeling of fullness and is perfect as an after-meal digestive, as well has properties that target gut healing and bolster gut immunity. Do not use it if you have a hernia. Dosage: 1 dropperful twice daily after meals.

Nurturing the Inner Child

I had the pleasure of attending the Blue Baffled Festival on Lasqueti Island, BC in August and took the opportunity to nourish my inner child by having my face painted! So much fun! I hope you find opportunities to nourish yourself during these very intense and sometimes chaotic times, as this will help you stay positive, feel loved and ignite your imagination!

*You want to embody and fully live The Sorcerer/Sorceress Archetype

During 2021 through 2031 there will be a massive re-birthing of the Divine Feminine within our world. This is the loving, flowing energy of balance, creativity, intuition, abundance and heart-centered spirituality. This time will also see the dissolution of old systems and an awareness of our connectedness to All That Is.

We are preparing for the next Golden Age that will begin in 2032. However many are unprepared and will find these 10 years confusing and hopeless unless one is willing to actively engage with and master the principles and laws of Divine Creation.

This group will be learning how to partner with the energies of the Divine Feminine and Divine Creation which directs us and connects us to a co-creative existence and infinite possibilities. This includes attunement and alignment with the 12 Spiritual Laws and 12 Chakras, respecting and adhering to the 5 Cycles of Creation, and increasing activation of our 12 strands of human DNA.

The Golden Spiral Group officially starts March 31st, 2021!  HOWEVER, YOU CAN JOIN ANYTIME!

Are you ready to join me for an exciting spiritual journey?  CLICK HERE for details!

You can join anytime, and opt in and out of each month as there is no recurring subscription.  You choose each month if you want to attend.
