violet flame wild iris 4-17-12-3A Word from the Ranch: April came and went, mostly cold and thankfully also wet during the last week. Now the tulips are finally showing their multiple colors and our dark purple iris, we call Violet Flame are in full bloom. They look like wild Blue Flags, but are much darker in color, the blossoms are lower to the ground and are the first flowers out every year, about 2 months ahead of their wild growing cousins. Our daily morning routine is now fairly well established and our dog Rusty is clearly very disappointed when we have to miss our daily hike back from the horse pasture.

Much of this last month was spent reading, when I came upon information and books, I had long been sub consciously searching for. Earlier one Thursday evening, I listened to an interview with the author Thomas Poppe at the weekly Psychic Viewpoint online radio show. I don’t listen in very often, but something seemed to nudge me to switch it on this time. Thomas first talked about the ancient knowledge of timing in accordance with the moon and zodiac cycles – I had heard about that, some of it was traditional knowledge in my family, but I never paid very close attention to it. Then he started talking about their latest book, explaining the Tyroler Birthday Wheel, how he came across this fascinating information through his wife Johanna Paungger, what the numbers of your birthday mean with regards to talents, notions and missing aspects and with that he had my full attention. When the show was over, I looked up his web page, filled in my birth date and boy did the explanation that popped up, ever fit me! I did the same with Jack’s dates and the ones of my parents and siblings – not one description that did not hit the jackpot to the “t”. I decided right then and there to purchase the book “The Code”, as well as “The Art of Timing”.

Poor Jack did neither get much attention nor to eat, while I read through both, plus a third that I remembered and rediscovered in my bookshelf – it had been there for many years. “Moon Time”. Of course, now our brand new vegetable garden will be started, planted, treated and harvested according to the moon and zodiac calendar – can only help. First the ground of the new plot was broken on April 29th, the perfect day with the waxing moon in Leo to get all the weeds to grow. Then it will get tilled again during waning moon, so the soil will be free of all weeds before we even start to plant after fertilizing and tilling a third time.

Now, of course Jack was not so convinced at first that all this was necessary or even a good idea until he saw me cleaning our windows on the perfect water day – and guess what - they turned out amazingly clean !!!!!!!!!! Rather embarrassing but true, for the very first time in 17 years there were no streaks and smears anywhere afterwards – even he noticed that. No choice anymore – the wintered geraniums were transplanted in Leo, 2 lilac bushes and our new pear tree were planted on the root day in Virgo, the grass is mown in waxing moon and the brush to provide shad on our pergola is due on the day of full moon etc, etc

But most of all, I used the birthday wheel code to add new aspects to my Tarot readings during the Wholistic Expo in Rapid City April 28/29 – what an amazing collection of wisdom in this one book and lots of helpful tips as well.

Just a reminder – May 26th I will offer the first full day seminar here at the ranch – Healing Hands is based on the methods and knowledge of the Spiritual Healers of England, I was fortunate to experience and learn many years back in Germany. It will be a fun day and incorporate many new aspects of my current spiritual understandings – come join me! You can find more details about this and other seminars in the category on the left side bar in this web page.

jack koche march 2012Archangel Haniel: Sensitivity

"You are extra-sensitive to energies and emotions right nw. Honor yourself and your fgeelings. Sensitivity is a beautiful and powerful gift, and there is no such thing as being too sensitive. Your sensitivity helps you know the truth about situations and people and it is important for you to truist and follow those hunches, intuitions and impressions. Spend time alone in nature to strengthen and nurture your sensitivity. At home avoid harsh situations and chemicals, choose healthy foods, beverages, companions and activities. Know that it is safe to feel deep emotions, practice recognizing the difference between your own emotions and the ones of other peope and know you are loved and protected at all times"

isa and rusty under the grandfather tree 3-10-12-1The Druids Call

Merlin, the Magikian, the inner magician in us all, is calling us to his crystal cave of enlightenment. Come, enter and walk with me, he calls, waiting for us to enter his cave filled with shining crystals, a sacred fire in the middle, leading to the Unknown of our Future. Ancient rituals reawakened remember us to our beginnings, our true self, compassionately reconnecting us with the intentions for our journey in physical form, joyfully acknowledging that the end of the game of illusions is near and the goal we came to achieve has been reached, steadily gaining enlightenment, and embracing conscious awareness of gratitude, compassion and love. We have come as far as it was agreed upon in the very beginning. We, in human form, became very separate from our true self and the understanding that we are divine beings, created equal and allowed to walk on the crust of the ancient soul of Gaja, Mother Earth. We came to experience every possible aspect of the journey, only to remember and reconnect with all there is now All energies are balancing now in these last days of the end of the cycle, so many holy myths, legends, books, writings, predictions and calendars throughout the ages talked about. Now, as the reference points of the past are no longer available to us, the time has come for humankind to step into the Unknown, not to drop off the cliff, but to lift our essence into higher dimensions, to live as we were meant to live – in our own, never aging or dying bodies, yes, still physical, but operating in much higher energies and dimensional realms. It is not anywhere else, we are not hurdled away from here, life will continue right here on Earth, but in a different, peaceful, balanced and enlightened way and all of the enlightened masters, the angels and many other beings are and always have been, patiently waiting to assist us with the transition. Our limited mind is determined to keep control over us, using fear and old ideas of separation, but it hurts now and is so much harder to give in to than ever before. Following your intuition and soul feelings in your solar plexus is very simple, but for that very reason, not always easy. It takes courage and integrity, faith, trust and most of all love, as everything is made from love. Nothing and no one is separate, never was, never will be – we now live in the time that was written about, the time to remember, to reconnect with the golden thread, which was handed to us when we first started this journey in physical form. We are not going back to live as we did in the ancient times, but in compassion, we will remember and reconnect the ancient with the new, to live in harmony on this planet or others. Time and space itself are changing, the veil of death is lifting, the illusions are revealed, one by one and hanging on to the old order is almost impossible now.

The Druids Call is going out, Gabriel is blowing his horn to alert us – it is time to awaken, time to remember, time to rejoice. When you hear your name called, clear and loud in your mind, you will follow the call, leave your business meeting or wake up in the middle of the night, interrupt what ever you are doing and listen. The call is heard within you, so clear it will be unmistakable. You may have heard it before, but hesitated to go all the way, to enter Merlin's Cave or to meet him in the middle of the Rainbow Bridge to Enlightenment. One way to become closer to yourself and to hear your inner voice, your soul's voice, is to spend as much time as possible in nature, walking slowly, sitting under old trees, feeling the warm sun on your back and the grass under your feet. Mother Earth is replenishing you with her energy, stirring up the memories of ancient times, easing the rising emotions and the tears will sweep them out of your being. Notice the vibrant colors that surround you – colors carry higher energy and influence your being every minute of every day. You may see wild flowers you never noticed before and become aware of their message of healing.

first tulips may 2-12-1When you are in harmony with nature, even wild animals might feel comfortable in your presence and come closer to investigate and honor your peaceful presence. Even animals that are said to be dangerous might sit or walk along side you quietly. It takes courage to enter the forest at the midnight hour, to sit under an ancient tree and feel all that is around you – seen and unseen forces and beings. As you sit in peace, many Spirits, the Gods of ancient times and Nature Beings will join you in your rituals of gratitude, paying reference to Earth, water, Fire and Air. They very possibly reveal themselves as they have done in the past and remember you to who you truly are – a divine creative master, beloved, surrounded by abundance, powerful – trusted with dominion over nature. As nature balances and readies herself to move into higher dimensions, we are asked to move along side her and NOW is the time. The doors to the past are closed for ever, the future is bright and ours to create, but, created and gifted with free will, each and everyone of us has the choice to make the transitions hard or easy on ourselves. So trust your soul – if your emotions run high and aspects of your daily life feel hard and painful in your gut, realize, it is your resistance to change that makes them hard. Forgive them, forgive yourself, forgive all past experiences, find compassion within you for yourself , all others and all there is as all your dreams are ready to emerge right where you are. If something feels good, easy, soft and loving, trust it to be so - it is good/God and filled with love – the only true energy there is.
