I have very vivid memories of Atlantis, when that culture fell because it lost its connection to its heart and allowed itself to be run by its lower ego. The results were devastating. Just when an ascension in consciousness could have occurred on the entire planet, we fell in consciousness instead and have spent centuries building ourselves back to this point in time when we could re- claim our power again, personally and within the universe. This is occurring at the collective level, the planetary level, and the per- sonal level all simultaneously.

There is nothing more important than reclaiming our power at this point in time because it will determine the future direction of our planet and our evolution.

The lessons from Atlantis, when we misused our power, are here again full blown: apathy, mind control, exerting power over others, experimenting with genetic manipulation and cloning, making decisions out of greed and fear, lacking the courage to stand up for what is right, allowing ourselves to be tricked into faulty agreements with misinformation, having our consciousness clouded so that we can not see what is really going on, We have the opportunity in the Now to make different decisions this time.

In order to reverse the decisions we made in the past, it takes each one of us to become conscious and to reclaim our power, to see the distortion in our own consciousness and in our societies that has existed for eons of time, and to choose higher consciousness in lieu of the manipulations of the lower ego. Becoming conscious occurs at many levels. We become conscious of our spiritual na- ture, conscious of our own psychological defenses, and conscious of illusion and falsehood around us.

This is a pivotal time. The battle between the Light and the dark of duality is upon us. This “battle” is between higher conscious- ness and lower consciousness. What will we choose? The task is to stand in the power of our Love and say no in an active way, not to engage or struggle with lower consciousness as it would like us to do, nor be apathetic, feel helpless or become immobi- lized with fear. This is the point in time we have been waiting for when this pattern around personal power could be transformed. The opening in time and the energy is here to support the change; we just have to choose it. The genetic manipulation that occurred in the days of Atlantis that lowered our vibration and led to dis- ease and all of the limitations that we continue to experience, can be undone now if we just say “yes” to regaining our power, to seeing the distortion around us and take a stand. The integration of higher consciousness can occur in this lifetime for the entire planet if we each fully participate in this transformation.

Light is information. As more light is pouring into our planet and our world, it is illuminating what has been hidden for eons of time. The action we take now will define the future of our country, the future of our world. Awareness of what has been hidden is hit- ting the mass consciousness. We all know it at some level and are expressing it to each other in the best way we can. Some of us can see more clearly than others. It is up to us to point the way where others will see it too!

Christ Consciousness is not outside of us; it is within us. We are the ones we have been waiting for. There is action that we can each take that will make a difference at this point in time to en- hance the evolution of consciousness. I will be part of the solution. I will say “yes” to the universe; I will choose the Light. I will do my own personal work and learn from my mistakes. I will stand in my power. I will take action in the world and I will take action on the inner planes. I will hold spaces of energy for everyone to see what they need to see and to do their part. I will send energy to our political leaders with the intention that they will be coura- geous and act with integrity. I will hold the world and the mass consciousness in a bubble of Light every day so that we can all feel and access the help that is available to us in Unity Consciousness. I will pray and ask for help. I will meet lower consciousness with Love but firmness rather than reaction. I will make a difference in the world.

Yes, I will. Yes, we can!


We have been speaking of the return of the Divine Feminine for quite a while now and at this momentous time it seems appropriate to speak of the wise woman referred to as the Crone. She is is often depicted as a narly old woman but not so! She is a beautiful Wise Woman, who has earned her wisdom from years of growth and integration. She is a spiritual grandmother, having acquired her title from experience and initiation. She is You! Read what Cathy Pagano has to say about the Crone and the Grandmothers who are needed so desperately at this point in time. ~ Blessings, Mary

The Celtic root of Halloween.In Celtic Ireland about 2,000 years ago, Samhain was the division of the year between the lighter half (summer) and the darker half (winter).In the Druid tradition, Samhain celebrates the dead with a festival on October 31 and usually features a bonfire and communion with the dead. On this day, the Celts believed the veil between the living and the dead was especially thin. This allowed spirits of the dead to visit the living. The family’s ancestors were honoured and invited home whilst harmful spirits were warded off. People wore costumes and masks to disguise themselves as harmful spirits and thus avoid harm. Later, November 1st and 2nd were celebrated by the christians as All Saint’s and All Soul’s Day_something we do to this day.

Why do we follow the moons?  More than 20 years ago a practionerr i was working with told me the  importance of me following the moons in order to be connected with time in the fourth dimension. Then, after spending some time Iin Kauai in 2013, I felt guided  to begin this newsletter. For some 25 years now I have been guided in the bigger picture to understand and write and teach about the shift in consciousness that is occurring on the earth plane. Both of my published books address the shift and how it is affecting us in their own way. The shifts of the moons contribute to the energy downloads we experience as we integrate who we are  at the soul and spirit levels of reality into our current consciousness. it is a “descention” process as we “ascend” in consciousness. We become grounded in who we are here rather than  leaving the physical body to go somewhere else.

The intensity of this process  in recent years cannot be denied. I find that astrology helps me understand at least some of what i am experiencing  It is not aways the total picture but it helps to explain thoughts and feelings that may be occurring or trends occurring in the mass consciousness. Here is another entry from Divine Harmony. I hope you find it helpful. ~ Blessings, Mary

I’m always somewhat surprised when my dreams reflect what the astrologers predict will happen with certain  transits as we have this week. The theme of this New Moon include regrets and resentments about old relationships and further healing of the Chiron wound. I have not in the past noticed the direct correlation between Chiron and rejection and abandonment which of course is related to the Schizoid and Oral defense pattern in the Characterology of  Bioenergetics. As healers, we know that we carry patterns to be healed sometimes more than others carry because we have agreed to carry them not only for personal healing but for the collective_ not usually an easy task. Looks like this is a time to “dive right in”  and go deeper in our own process of healing using the many tools we have acquired and perhaps looking for new ones.. Working from the Unity level of consciousness can clear trauma much more quickly and easily than other methods and can be achieved through trans-mission  from another healer. Stay tuned for an announcement about an online seminar I will be offering on this subject in the near future. ~ Blessings, Mary

Divine Harmony in her post for the October 18 Full Moon speaks to to the lessons from Atlantis . Here is an excerpt from my first book Kicking and Screaming to Enlightenment  where I write about my experiences in Atlantis when I led a Mystery School in the late 90s. All Rights Reserved.

“I have very vivid memories of Atlantis, when that culture fell because it lost its connection to its heart and allowed itself to be run by its lower ego. The results were devastating.

We have the opportunity in the Now to make different decisions this time.”


We hear a lot about being in the Now as spiritual seekers, but how do we do that? What part of us in present in the Now? Michael Lennox addresses that here at this New Moon_ only the body is present in the Now! It is by integrating higher consciousness into the body that we evolve_not by traveling to higher dimensions beyond the body but by integrating our higher consciousness into our four body system. Then we have access to the wisdom of ego, soul and spirit all at the same time. Being connected and present at this New Moon gives us the power to create something new unusually powerful. ~ Blessings, Mary

I began sharing these moon messages in 2013 after spending several months on Kauai, not because I’m an astrologer but because I was guided to follow these energy shifts as they apply to our evolution in consciousness.. Understanding this evolution has been a task of mine for many years; followng the moons consciously is an important part of this process.

I didn’t get this out last week at the time of the New Moon, yet it seems even more relevant now. The Phoenix is indeed rising! With all that has happened in our country two weeks ago with the attack on the Capitol and the impeding Inauguration,  I was not focused on astrology. And yet, reading about it now, I find it very halpful to explain many of the things we are experiencing, pointing us in the direction of how we can help. The shift from Piscean era into Aquarius is occurring now and not without a fight! Here are some very wise writings from Divine Harmony . Let us give thanks for the transition that is occurring  ? ?

Long before it was popular, some twenty five years ago, I was guided to learn and to write about a shift of consciousness occurring on the earth plane. The subject matter has evolved, as we have, and people tend to use different language to describe it now but the subject matter is the same. We are in a time of a rapid acceleration in our consciousness, a shift in our perception of reality from experiencing ourselves only as individuated to recognizing that we”re also part of a whole_one consciousness with many parts. It is not an intellectual endeavor but one that must be experienced. It is in experiencing it that we come to Know this truth. There is a pulsation between us individually and the collective consciousness which comes in stages, as we begin to view reality from a higher perspective. Astrology explains some of how this shift is occurring and how to work with it individually. Here are some of the latest writings from astrologers who understand this phenomenon as this very pivotal 2020 year is coming to aa close. ~ Blessings, Mary

I like what Pam Younghans says best about this New Moon! It’s a complicated one. No one has to tell about the complexity of the world right now but it helps to get some clarity about why certain things are up and direction as to where to go from here.. There’s no doubt we need to hold the light for the collective and follow our guidance about where we can most be of service. As we know, there is a lot of personal and ancestral clearing that is needed and integration of the new energies that are being downloaded. For those who were interested in the Hara Alignment tape last time, there was a delay in getting it posted on my website but it is there now and there will be another new one in the next week. For healers who are interested in new work, stay tuned. I am developing a new series that will be announced soon. You will find it on my Professional Training for Healers page here. ~ Blessings, Mary

The Hara Lne is a concept developed by Barbara Brennan that describes a level of energy that is a quantum level below the auric field and contains 3 points_ the tantien, the soul seat and the individuation point. It is a level of intentionality that creates the auric field. When we align our Hara Line, we align our personal will with Divine will. 

We all have a Hara Line and so does the planet. As a result of the many astrological transits and eclipses so far this year, the Hara of the planet is shifting. That means that we need to integrate that shift within ourselves in order to move forward.

There was so much going on with the Full Moon last week, that I was unable to write about it. I experienced this deep foreboding that something immense was about to happen that was far beyond the Full Moon or the storm about to hit the east coast of our county_ maybe even nuclear.. When I looked with my clairvoyant vision, I could see energy of negative intent looming but I couldn’t see what or where something was going to happen. As I watched, Light was brought into that energy and it dissipated somewhat but not all. Then the event happened in Lebanon and I realized that was it.

We are at such a turning point on the planet; healers  have used the phase “hold the light” for the planet for many years and yet we need to be reminded how to do that and to do it on a daily basis. It is a time when those who are connected consciously need to use the power of their alignment to hold the light for the planet to modify the negativity going on and to allow what is truly Real to materialize out of the illusion.  

Here is a guided mediation to help you to align with the planet’s new Hara Line and to clear whatever blocks you might have that stand in the way. You will find it here on the Professional Training for Healers at the bottom of the page. You don’t have to be a healer to listen ~ Blessings, Mary


I think it’s fair to say that not many of us were prepared for the amount of change we are experiencing in 2020. As a result of the many astrological transits and eclipses of the moon that have occurred so far, the Hara of the entire planet is shifting. You may be feeling this change within your bodies, out of sorts, out of alignment, out of body. Physical ailments may be surfacing. 

The Hara Line, as taught by Barbara Brennan, is an alignment that is a  quantum level of energy below the auric field. It exists from above your head through your body and down into the center core of the earth. It contains three points and it aligns your personal will with Divine will. It is a level of intentionality. 

As I moved along in my own evolution, I was guided to modify this alignment slightly to include the non-dual_ the Unity level of conscious that we all descend from. When we connect with this highest level, we can then begin to integrate it through our own individual fields of light, transforming blocks there, and on the physical, emotional, mental or cellular DNA levels so that we can bring that level into the earth plane. This is our task now to align our own Hara line with the Hara Line of the planet as it is changing. If you do healing work, this alignment will enhance everything you do and make it easier. 

The following is a  guided Hara mediation that will guide you into Unity and your Hara through a transmission of healing energy when you listen. You will find it here at Professional Training for Healers at the bottom of the page.  Be sure to provide yourself with enough time to integrate after and don’t listen to it when you are driving. You don’t have to be a healer to listen. ~ Blessings, Mary

Powerful energies are affecting us today with this Full Moon.That seems to be a familiar theme these days although each transit is different and affects us differently. It’s been a long time since I have reacted to a Full Moon in such an emotional way. I find it helpful to hear what the astrologers say to give meaning to what I am experiencing.This one features two polar opposites.

There was an amazing Full Moon here in Phoenix last night. It was huge hanging low in the sky and looked like a harvest moon in color. Auspicious for sure!


Read this excerpt from my latest book
The Wisdom Teachings Meet the New Age
Available now  at Amazon, BookBaby  Barnes and Noble, and other online bookstores. 
“What is evil and where does it come from? Explanations from religion and even other spiritual teachings have not understood this phenomenon well and their explanations have often promoted fear. The Gnostics describe evil in the world as Cosmic Ignorance.

Evil is the natural consequence of free will_ being given the choice of using positive intent or negative intent.  It does not come from God, but from “cosmic ignorance.” But, if the root of both enlightenment and cosmic ignorance comes from the same consciousness force, then evil is not really separate from God, but is a gross manifestation of Cosmic Ignorance, the true nature of which is Divine; its Divinity is just hidden or concealed. So is there a roll for evil in the world? Is it a part of the Divine Plan?”


It’s hard to stay positive with what just occurred with Kavanaugh and the Supreme Court. But the Universe works in mysterious ways so who knows how this will unfold? Will it determine the midterms? Time will tell. What’s important is that we allow ourselves to grieve but not to despair. We need to keep standing for truth and justice. This new moon in Libra is all about balance, justice and right relationship with the Other. What does that mean?

In recent months, I have been guided to explore the philosophies of Gnostic Christianity. I have been delighted to see its connection with the Divine Feminine and the process of surrender in healing work that I have been engaged in for many years. Rather than being a religious tenant, it is a spiritual one, based upon Direct Experience as a path to enlightenment. You may think that becoming enlightened is the least of our worries right now with what is going on in the world, yet it is exactly what we need to be doing_connecting with higher consciousness and viewing reality from a higher more inclusive perspective. One that does not judge but observes all experiences with compassion.

Why are we seeing so much negativity in the world and why does hatred and  abuses of power seem to be predominating?  In the last decade there has been much talk from the Religious right about an apocalypse and armageddon_ dogma that has caused fear and that has  misrepresented the true meaning of those words.

According to the Sophia tradition of Gnosticism, the Apocalypse is a rapid acceleration of consciousness at the collective level, exactly what is described by New Age teachings. But because everyone is not ready for this leap in consciousness, it creates a conflict between the old and the new; one that challenges our survival. Those who are ready to raise their consciousness become challenged by those who aren’t and by tenants of their lower consciousness. This great conflict is named Armageddon and is the struggle between these two inclinations. One is our evolutionary past; the other our evolutionary future_ embodying our Divine nature! “The former is an inclination to selfishness and violence; the latter to an inclination to self-self-transcendence and compassion.” (Living Gnosis, Tau Malachi p. 11)  This struggle occurs within us and is reflected outward into the mass consciousness where we see it playing out. It intensifies until it is resolved, one way or the other.

So this is what we are seeing and experiencing_ the struggle between selfishness and our evolutionary past and compassion and our evolutionary future both personally and collectively. Those of us who are raising our consciousness play an important part. It is to stand in our power and to oppose the selfishness of the lower ego that is trying to dominate.

So take time to grieve and to “lick your wounds” after the Kavanaugh debacle and then get up and take your next step. Stand in your power, wherever that may lead you in social action and continue to evolve your consciousness. Deal with your own internal conflicts and Hold the Light for the planet and its evolution. We are making a leap in consciousness. This is the part we play. ~ Blessings, Mary


Sometimes we forget to use the power we have to influence outcomes in the world by using our energy healing skills when we get caught up in the collective drama. But those skills are still available to us_ both prayer and “holding space” for a positive outcome. Both use energy but in a different way.

What’s the difference between prayer and “holding space?” Prayer, is petitionary. We ask God, the Universe or particular spiritual energies to help a person or deliver a particular outcome in a particular situation (aka like the tax bill), although our teachers remind us to let go of a particular outcome but to pray for the highest good of all concerned. We definitely send energy when we do this. Another method to use our energy skills is “holding space”. When we do this, we hold a person in a “bubble” of spiritual energy that they can use or not use; this respects a person’s free will and takes our ego desire out the equation. We may not know what is best for a person or a situation even if we think we do. But by “holding space'” we offer a gift of light and connection to a person that they may not be able to reach by themselves in that moment without forcing our will upon them. They get to choose!

We can also “send energy” to a person or situation which may be appropriate in certain situations like emergencies or catastrophes but we need to be sure we’re working from our connection to spiritual guidance and not ego here because we may not see a situation clearly from our egos and may try to achieve something that is not for the highest good.

I’m thinking of these things a lot lately as we watch atrocities occurring in government and the world in general. We do not need to stand by feeling helpless. We have energy tools that can make a difference; we just to remember to use them!

I am not an astrologer and yet for years I have been guided to pay attention to the New and Full moons each month and what they mean to our evolutionary process. These are openings in time, which if we utilize them, can advance our personal and collective growth. This month Divine Harmony reminds us that if we use this Mercury Retrograde, which begins on Saturday and the Full Moon energies on Sunday for our personal growth, that we can complete a cycle and move to the new one in a new place. But if we don’t, we take the old patterns with us into the new cycle and will repeat them again. We can do this by surrendering to our feelings and whatever comes up and transforming and integrating that shadow energy. Let’s utilize this opening in time to transform our old patterns and evolve into a new pattern free of the past and rebirthing a new aspect of ourselves ! ~ Blessings, Mary

I woke up yesterday morning feeling the pain of the world! It took me a few minutes to figure out what I was experiencing. I haven’t felt that since 2003 at the beginning of the Iraq War when I experienced it quite often and had to learn how to deal with it. This is even worse_the fear and disbelief we are all feeling is overwhelming at times. How could this be happening to our country and to our fellow travelers on this planet, here to raise our consciousness and the consciousness of the world?

Well, it’s a part of the journey. Some are saying a Trump presidency was inevitable to mobilize us into seeing the truth and corruption in our world and standing in our power to take back our planet; perhaps that’s true. But there is an element of shock that so much could happen in the space of a week’s time as we listen to Trump’s “executive actions” No time for denial or delay of action; just time to take action. I could say more about all the particulars, but you can find that online and on cable T.V. The wind is at our backs! People are demonstrating all over the world with strong conviction and will probably need to for a long period of time. What I would like to focus on is how to stay grounded, feeling empowered, and handling feelings of overwhelm.

If we go back to Metaphysics 101, we will remember that the lower consciousness of the planet thrives on the energy of fear and anger. These feelings “feed” it, so it strives to provoke these feelings and to create division between groups of people. If you connect to the feelings of the world, which is bound to happen from time to time since we’re all connected, especially if you’re on a spiritual path, it can seem to come out of nowhere and be overwhelming. The task is to learn to hold a larger space of energy as a container for those feelings_ the Transpersonal Witness. This “container”, as its name suggests, is transpersonal rather than personal. It allows us to “witness” these collective feelings so that we can transform them rather than feel them personally and be overwhelmed by them.

Within Unity consciousness, which is the level of consciousness we are integrating now on the earth plane, we recognize that we are all connected and we find love, compassion and caring for the good of the whole. From that place, actions are taken not just for our own desires, but for the what will serve the whole e.g.. other people, other countries etc.

If you would like to learn how to connect to this level of consciousness and utilize it, call me for a personal session or attend one of my seminars. See my website for more information.

If there ever was a time to “hold the light” for the planet it is now. Here’s a quote from my previously published book Kicking and Screaming to Enlightenment, a Journey to the Real Self. ~ Blessings, Mary

For years now I have talked about the shift in consciousness we are going through collectively, where we are moving from experiencing reality from our individuated selves, to seeing the bigger picture from the Self, where we have compassion and make decisions for the good of the whole. This is not an easy transition and has many levels. Cathy Pagano shares some amazing wisdom here about this New Moon today in Leo! ~ Blessings, Mary

No matter how disappointed progressive people who supported Bernie and real change in this country are about the way the DNC did not give him a fair chance_did not follow the will of the people_ why are we surprised that the “powers that be” would not support change that would take away their power over the masses? The chicanery has been exposed now as a “fact” even though we knew in our hearts what was going on, and Hilary has not chosen a running mate who would be our first choice. So what do we do now? What’s our next step?

A third party may truly be what we need, but not now. We haven’t got the foundation built so that we could win! I have to admit though that I can see the wisdom of choosing Tim Kaine. He is a likable guy, he has tons of experience to contribute, he seems honest and he can bring in the swing state of Virginia and maybe the Senate and Congress at times. Watching what I could stomach of the latest from Trump, we do have to stop him; we cannot allow him to be elected. And it sounds like there is a chance that he could be elected. No.

I don’t think we should look at this as “submitting” to the Clinton campaign or being disrespected or “losing”. Yes, our position is being disrespected but again what do we expect from people who have been in charge for a long time and want to keep it that way! Perhaps we need to “surrender” to where we are right now and keep making headway on implementing all the things we believe in. We’ve made some headway on important issues such as TPP, a public option in healthcare and student loans in the Democratic platform; now we’ve got to work to get those things implemented in Congress. The revolution has just begun; Rome was not built in a day! At some point, when we have built a foundation, perhaps we can elect a third party candidate if the Dems won’t come along, but for now, I think we need to build on our successes and keep Donald Trump out of the Whitehouse!

Listening to Bernie on the Sunday shows this morning, I agree with the way he is reflecting on this. Was it a fair competition in the primary? No, it wasn’t. Here in Arizona, Clinton claims that she won but the way that she won was by keeping a great number of people from voting_some estimate a million progressive Democrats and Independents could not vote_ and by reducing the number of voting places from over 200 to 60. People stood in long lines for hours; many were given provisional ballots that were never counted. CNN announced the winner in AZ while people still stood in line to vote. This has got to stop! It is all part of the “old order”. It’s not the first time it has been initiated by either side of the aisle. If a candidate cannot win an election honestly, what does that say about them?

Duality is all about the struggle between two polar opposites; so are political parties in this country. They create division among people rather than uniting the in common purpose. Those who say we can never have more than two major parties are wrong, in my opinion. When we add a third successful party, we will shift out of duality and the division that it creates, and move into a higher level of consciousness with respect and policies that are fair for all. But we have to build a foundation for it so that it has an equal voice and can succeed. In the meantime, we can still make a difference by working towards fairness and equality for all. It’s not an easy task, but as Hilary Clinton once said “It Takes a Village”!

With Ears to Hear and Eyes to See!

It was difficult for me to see Bernie endorse Hillary yesterday; many of us had hopes that he would truly be the nominee. But I can’t help but admire the way in which Bernie adjusts to the way life unfolds, surrendering very quickly, and continues on his path for the higher good to get people involved and to achieve the changes our country needs at this point in time. He has changed the discussion of our political trajectory in one short year. As he has said many times, this election is not about him, it is about us_what we will do, how we will be involved in our government, what we will demand from our governmental leaders.

Change always occurs from the bottom up! If Hillary becomes president, everything is in place for us to demand the changes that our people and our country need; if Trump were to become president, we will be on a downward spiral. Do we need to be for enough of the collective to “wake up” and become more conscious of what is going on? To suffer more before we demand change? I don’t think so; I hope not. It seems like the opening for change and for regaining our power is here if we resolve to take it. It does not come from ego and it is not power over another; it is standing in our power for the good of the whole. Fairness, equality. Not self-serving but having the maturity to see how all can prosper when we honor and respect each other and our places within the whole.

I remember how I felt when Bush was elected the second time, knowing that the first election had been stolen. It was beyond reason to me that he could be elected a second time; I couldn’t get out of bed for four days. But after a while, I realized that many of us saw the truth of what had happened_ the election, the Iraq War, the Patriot Act_ but not enough people for a collective shift to happen. It took another four years before enough people would “get it” and be motivated to do something about it. We are still in that process. Although many positive things have happened with Obama as president, they were not the deep change we voted for and hoped for_ the changes that Bernie is speaking to now. True change from a system that is not working anymore in all facets of government_ campaign finance, voting rights, our congress and senate. How did we get here where congressmen can make $174,000 a year, refuse to bring up important legislation for a vote when it is supported by huge majorities of people, and take more “vacation time” every year to avoid doing what they have been elected to do? It makes no sense.

Through Bernie’s efforts, we are much more conscious now of the problems in our voting laws, income and wealth inequality, horrendous trade policies, our broken criminal justice system, and our people’s lack of access to affordable health care and higher education. He fought aggressively to address the crisis of climate change, the need for real comprehensive immigration reform, the importance of developing a foreign policy that values diplomacy over war, and so much more. It’s time for us to take over now. There’s been a “coup” going on in our country for some time now as corporations take over what was once our democracy. If Trump is allowed to be elected, it will be all over. We are not powerless in the face of this threat. Please be involved in this election cycle, do your homework on the issues, have a voice, vote your conscience and pray on a regular basis. We need to “hold the light” during this chaotic time staying grounded, aligned and consciously connected to who we really are amidst the chaos rather than get caught up in it! That is real power_spiritual power. We need to remember to use it!

Love this image of the crab, the signature for Cancer in Astrology. I’m sending this newsletter a bit early because the planet Mars goes direct today from a lengthy retrograde period that has put us on hold_now we can slowly move forward with all that we learned about ourselves during the retrograde, acknowledging our part in events of the past. This new moon falls on a national holiday over the weekend  here in the U.S., the date of our nation’s Birthday, and I can feel its power already. Feels like a reprieve to me with energizing and joyful energy and yet there is more to follow. Sirius is conjunct this new moon again bringing both personal and collective openings to higher consciousness. I’ve written about Sirius before; when its close like this we can utilize it’s high frequency energy. This is a powerful year astrologically with one transit after another demanding our attention. As always, Divine Unity, one of my favorite astrologers,  has much wisdom to share about this New Moon.  See my latest newsletter!

Being present in the here and now is what we strive for on the spiritual path. Have you noticed how quickly that now moment moves to the next one so that if you don’t take action in a “here and now” moment when something seems relevant, it then disappears and the moment is lost ? That doesn’t mean it wasn’t something important to act on, just that you missed an opportunity to take action when it could have made a difference. Right now the planet Mars is still retrograde and it moved back into Scorpio for a month on May 27th. Do you feel like you’re still waiting for something to happen to move you forward?And you’re sloshing through a lot of old stuff? Our task is to stay present and deal with what presents itself. Here’s some wisdom from Divine Harmony on that subject. ~ Blessings, Mary

so from 5/27-6/29 we have retrograde mars in the depths and bowels of scorpio- facing us with all our shadow material that most of us prefer not to deal with or look at directly (if at all). the thing is when we don’t deal with it- it deals with us. if we cannot see it in ourselves then it comes into our life in the form of others who become the projections for our own shadow. the shadow of scorpio can be very intense- jealousy, possessiveness, obsession, anger, rage, misuse of sexuality and power, addiction, power/control dynamics, revenge and more. looking at our relationship to the dark side of the psyche is key during the coming month. looking at where we are afraid of the depths and shadows or alternatively where we are obsessed and overtaken by them is key. ultimately we are all seeking to come into right relationship with the shadow- so that means not suppressing it or spiritual by passing it and it also means not living in it completely and acting it out

I’ve been giving some thought to that question lately and realizing that I need to talk more about my brand and the focus of my healing practice. I work very effectively with a variety of people of all ages in my private practice as a healer, and have for 25 years now, but my true specialty, my “brand” is describing and integrating the shift in consciousness we are experiencing on the earth plane and being the healer’s healer!

Not everyone is interested in metaphysics or esoteric study or in levels of consciousness, but I am and that is my specialty! While we understand some aspects of spirituality from metaphysics and esoteric study, we can’t really “understand” these things without experiencing them.

The collective is going through a shift in consciousness. We have finished the phase of experiencing ourselves as individuated “beings” and now, as we expand, we are becoming aware that we are part of a bigger whole, and that that “whole” cannot exist without each other.

In the upcoming months, I would like to offer more seminars for healers and other health care professionals. If you would like to sponsor a seminar in your area, call me or text me at 808.651.2045. ~ Blessings, Mary

Have you felt a shift in energy the last few days? The planet Mars turned retrograde on the 17th, and we have a full moon in Scorpio tomorrow on April 21st. I love this image for Scorpio by Laura Laisley, the Scorpion_ something we see often here in the Southwest. A symbol of power, passion, death and rebirth, exposure of something that is hidden or in shadow and also something to be wary of. They only sting defensively but their sting can be very painful and poisonous!

I can’t help but notice the connection in the last few months between astrological transits and our spiritual growth and integration. There has been much talk about alignment of personal will with Divine Will, the deepest longing of the Soul_ both concepts that are addressed in the Brennan model of healing work. How do you align your personal will with Divine will? What’s the difference between what you think  you want and what you know  you want? And how do you connect with the deepest longing of your Soul?

I learned these methods many years ago when I studied with the Brennan school and then expanded upon them through personal growth. When you bring the non-dual into these alignments, they become even more powerful. Transcend and Include, as Ken Wilber coined the phrase. When you go beyond a level of consciousness, the previous level is contained within it at the same time.

I have recorded 2 healing meditations for you to experience alignment with Divine Will and your Soul’s deepest longing, which I have posted on my website here. It is through experiencing these things that you will come to understand them. Be sure to listen to them when you have time to rest awhile afterward and not while you are driving.

Social Action

Sometimes we forget to use the power we have to influence outcomes in the world by using our energy healing skills when we get caught up in the collective drama. But those skills are still available to us_ both prayer and “holding space” for a positive outcome. Both use energy but in a different way.

What’s the difference between prayer and “holding space?” Prayer, is petitionary. We ask God, the Universe or particular spiritual energies to help a person or deliver a particular outcome in a particular situation (aka like the tax bill), although our teachers remind us to let go of a particular outcome but to pray for the highest good of all concerned. We definitely send energy when we do this. Another method to use our energy skills is “holding space”. When we do this, we hold a person in a “bubble” of spiritual energy that they can use or not use; this respects a person’s free will and takes our ego desire out the equation. We may not know what is best for a person or a situation even if we think we do. But by “holding space'” we offer a gift of light and connection to a person that they may not be able to reach by themselves in that moment without forcing our will upon them. They get to choose!

We can also “send energy” to a person or situation which may be appropriate in certain situations like emergencies or catastrophes but we need to be sure we’re working from our connection to spiritual guidance and not ego here because we may not see a situation clearly from our egos and may try to achieve something that is not for the highest good.

I’m thinking of these things a lot lately as we watch atrocities occurring in government and the world in general. We do not need to stand by feeling helpless. We have energy tools that can make a difference; we just to remember to use them!

And we thought intensity of emotions only occurred at full moons? Not so by how this new moon is feeling! It is exhilarating but also saddening to see the number of people who are waking up to the reality of our political system. 20 years ago, it was considered a “conspiracy theory” to speak of a “secret government” but now the term is used freely on the internet by many authors of legitimate publications like the Boston Globe and Huffington Post. It’s just a fact_just the way it is. So what do we do now that we know about it?

I remember writing an article for my newsletter several years ago where I was talking about the our role as Light Workers to help shift duality into Unity Consciousness and how to do it. There I posed the question “perhaps duality is just the way it is and we can’t really change it.” Maybe we have to build a new structure that exists right along side duality_one of higher consciousness_a multidimensional reality and people can choose which one they want to live in. At least for a while while duality is being phased out. That fits with the process of Voice Dialogue too where we don’t try to change a part of ourselves; we accept it for what it is and develop an observer to it~a part that takes charge of the decision making based on what it observes from the different parts. This observer, an aware ego, is what changes.


I think of that this week with discussions going on on Facebook about who is really in charge of our government and why things don’t change very much. How much do our votes really count? Can we really change the existing structure by inserting people with good intention into it, or do we need to create a new one? One built on a different premise than a two party system which keeps people opposing each other_a system that truly sees people as equals and makes decisions for the good of the whole. A system conceived of higher consciousness! Sound like a “pipe dream”? Maybe, but I don’t think so. If we can envision it, we can create it. I think we are creating it as we “hold the light” for the planet. It may be just about to materialize. How soon? Probably not overnight but it’s clear, people are waking up to the truth and the charade can’t go on for long once that happens. ~Blessings, Mary


If you have read my first book, Kicking and Screaming to Enlightenment, then you know that I see a connection between the genetic manipulation and loss of power that we experienced as a species in the point in time we call Atlantis, and what we are experiencing now. Because these issues have come around circle, the energy to see what is happening and to reclaim our power is currently available to us. The future of the planet and of our evolution depends on the choices that we make now. It is not a time to put our heads in the sand or to be apathetic. It is a time to stand in truth and take back our power, both personally and collectively.

This is certainly relevant when we look at what many are observing about our political system as the primary season unfolds. Many, if not most of us were unaware that different states have different rules for voters and distributing delegates for a federal election. And for most states, Independents are not allowed to vote in the primaries. That means that many potential voters are being left out of helping to determine who will run on a Federal ballet. It’s clear to me, this is a sure way of maintaining the control of a 2 part system_one that maintains the status quo of corporate control and money interests, discouraging people from participating in the political system because they have no power.

Independent numbers have grown nationally by leaps and bounds. Why would that be, if there is no Independent Party as such? It’s because people are unhappy with both major political parties and don’t want to be a part of them. in Arizona, more than 50% of the population are registered Independents, more than the number of registered Democrats and Republicans put together! In our “Presidential Preference” election here,(an interesting term; its not considered an actual primary) it is estimated that a million people were not allowed to vote when voting locations were changed from over 200 to 60. Results for the Arizona election were being called on National TV while people still waited in line to vote, some for 4-5 hours. This is Democracy?

But we have a candidate who is challenging those notions now; his name is Bernie Sanders! And although the media would have us believe that he has no chance of winning, I think that’s still up to us! The “culture”, “the patriarchy”, the “powers that be” are certainly fighting to try to keep change from happening, but stranger things have happened. When it’s time and the Universe is supporting change, it can happen when we least expect it. So I hope that you will educate yourself about this election and these candidates, become involved in the process, and make decisions based on informed consent, not sound bites or drama! It’s time to take back our power as citizens of the Universe if we choose to; its up to us!

It can be difficult to understand the workings of the Universe sometimes, especially from the perspective of the present moment, but one thing is for sure, if there was ever a time to stand for transformation and change politically, this is that moment. I guess Bernie shouldn’t be surprised to the extent that the current “culture” would fight to preserve itself in the face of its demise, but at some level I think he is; he looked very sad and resigned on TV this morning. The game isn’t over yet, Bernie! But the media would have us think so.

Our media tends to shape our belief systems and would define our sense of reality. It tells us what to think and tells us what is possible, if we allow it. But is it correct or just a figment of ego? Clearly the pun dents are operating from ego when they define for us what they see as possible in this upcoming delegate selection and election process. They have no higher vision of what might be possible or how so called “miracles”, things totally unexpected can happen. Or maybe they are just too invested in the status quo. After all, they are a part of the old order and the old order is “kicking and screaming” to stay in control even though its time is ending. As are politicians on both sides of the isle. Is it any wonder why more Democrats haven’t endorsed Bernie when they are part of the system he is attempting to address? Campaign finance reform and what about our voting system? No attention is being given in this primary season to how the votes are being counted and monitored for accuracy. With only a few months until the general election, how will we know that our votes are being tallied accurately and are really counted? With so many being disenfranchised now, can we really have an honest vote of the people?

We are living in a period of time that parallels events and decisions that were made in Atlantis eons ago. Genetically modified mosquitoes. Really? A cure or a cause of the disease? Dr. Brownstein in Michigan made the connection between genetically modified mosquitoes used in the area of the Zika virus before the outbreak of affected infants.

It’s a time to become conscious of what is going on politically and governmentally and take back our power. If we ever had any doubt that our political system was “rigged”, its hard to deny it now. It’s time to change the system! Joseph Chilton Pearce, in his book The Biology of Transcendence speaks of the differences between society and culture and the way in which culture will fight to maintain itself in the face of its demise. But we have the power of prayer and light work! We need to stand in the power of alignment with soul and Spirit with intention for the good of the whole. Is this the time when our political system will change and move in a direction that is fair to all? We don’t know yet, but we can pray and we can hope!


I’m reminded right now of something Barbara Hand Clow, an astrologer I followed in the late nineties, said about the anger and disillusionment Americans would experience when they realized they had been lied to by their government about their freedoms and the way things worked. I thought this would happen in 2012, but it seems to be happening now in 2016 which is what others had predicted. As we watch the drama of the upcoming election, I hear more and more people saying “You mean our primary votes don’t really determine which candidate will run in the Presidential Election? In the end, it’s the party who decides who will run? They can discard the people’s voice after the first ballet? ” It has always been so, we’re just paying more attention now.

There has always been corruption in our political system. Each state has their own set of rules and restrictions that control who can run in an election, primary votes, presidential elections. Voting machines can be hacked, results can be flipped. Are we really a Democracy as we have been told, or have we been fooled into thinking so? Cathy Pagano speaks to how astrology is assisting us to”wake up” to the truth and to take action. This is the time to take back our power! . Blessings ~Mary

In 1992, there was a book published called Bringers of the Dawn by Barbara Marciniak, which was very popular among spiritual seekers and new age readers. The phrase I most remember from the book was “system busters”. Barbara spoke of many of us incarnated at this time having come into this planet to break up the structures that are out of alignment with higher truth and no longer serving us. _ Structures that needed to be eliminated so that better structures, based on higher consciousness and the good of the whole could take their place.

A lot has happened since then, some 24 years ago. Much to our dismay, changes have not occurred as smoothly or as quickly as we had hoped. But I cannot help but think of that book as I watch Bernie Sanders speak about what he hopes to accomplish. Sounds like a “system buster” to me! And God bless him and his courage.

Some people don’t think “spiritual” people should be engaged in politics, but I disagree. Politics per say may not be an honest pursuit and is full of corruption, but social action is indeed necessary if we are to be of service to this world we live in on this plane of reality. It is not something that can be ignored or denied. Holding alignment for higher truth and taking action for issues we believe in that serve the whole, is a necessary part of being a citizen of the world.

I hope you will be involved in this next election cycle, not by engaging in the lower aspects of the political system, but by educating yourself about the issues, using your discernment to “read between the lines,” and standing in your power by speaking your truth as a citizen of this country and a citizen of the world. ~ Blessings, Mary

Michael Moore has always been a favorite of mine. Here’s his latest letter_just in time for the Winter Solstice and Christmas_spread the word!

“So, in desperation and insanity, you call for a ban on all Muslims entering this country. I was raised to believe that we are all each other’s brother and sister, regardless of race, creed or color. That means if you want to ban Muslims, you are first going to have to ban me. And everyone else.

We are all Muslim.

Just as we are all Mexican, we are all Catholic and Jewish and white and black and every shade in between. We are all children of God (or nature or whatever you believe in), part of the human family, and nothing you say or do can change that fact one iota. If you don’t like living by these American rules, then you need to go to the time-out room in any one of your Towers, sit there, and think about what you’ve said.”  Michael Moore

The Denying Americans the Right to Know (DARK) Act is before Congress.
Big Food’s allies in Congress are doing everything they can to implement their anti-labeling agenda before the end of the year – including sneaking the main components of the DARK Act into the end-of-year spending bill!

Many  people who are on a spiritual path have had memories of the genetic manipulation that occurred in Atlantis at another point in time. As we have come to understand, time is really not linear, but occurs in a recurring circle so that events and issues repeat themselves_what goes around comes around! We are in a period of time now where issues that presented themselves in Atlantis are repeating themselves.

It’s about greed and having power over the masses. Underneath that is a fear that people will come into their own power by connecting with their spiritual awareness and “the powers that be” will somehow loose their power, their place, their importance. But it is all based upon a faulty belief system because we each have our unique place within the collective consciousness; no one is more important than the other. When we each reach a connection with our own power spiritually, the entire collective grows and expands. No one gets demoted. This fear is based upon an idea that to have power, one must control others and restrict them. It is a fallacy.

Perhaps it is time to recognize this fear that is behind the attempts to control the masses and to meet it with compassion. In Atlantis, our genetics were manipulated to lower our consciousness so that we would not connect spiritually and come into our own power. It was done energetically and manipulatively in the temples by tricking the people into faulty agreements. Today it is being done by manipulating our food supply and our medicines by introducing toxins and ingredients into them that change our DNA. Antibiotics, hormones, genetically modified organisms_could it be any plainer? GMO’s! These foods change our DNA, lower our vibration, create dis-ease and redirect our attention from the higher vibration to the lower. Its insane! Why would anyone do that? When you are busy surviving, its more difficult to remember who you are, focus on  higher consciousness, recognize the God-Self within_our purpose for being here.

I haven’t talked about the “dark forces” in a long time; there is much confusion about the meaning of that term. But they do exist; they are the lower vibration of collective thought that has taken on form and has a life of its own. It operates out of its faulty belief systems_ its delusions if you will_ as I’ve spoken of above. It is destructive because it has lost its way and is operating out of greed and survival mode; it is not  connected with higher consciousness and the bigger picture. It is the collective “lower self” of the ego. It lacks compassion and it doesn’t recognize the distortion in its thinking.

What can we do about this? At the spiritual level, We need to bring love and compassion to the faulty thinking of this energy. It is “crazy”; it has lost its way. We can do that in meditation and with prayer.

On a practical level, We can reclaim our power by being aware of what is happening in the food industry and by having a voice_by taking a stand about the labeling of our foods,_by refusing to allow this genetic manipulation again.
Not only do 64 other nations require labeling, but according to a survey by The Mellman Group, more than 90 percent of Americans of all parties and genders want labeling. The DARK Act goes against what the vast majority of us want. I urge you to stand with me today in support of mandatory GMO labeling by contacting your members of Congress right now.

The Universe has an interesting way of helping us to become conscious and to make choices. Periodically, we get similar circumstances to see if we have gotten the lesson. Is it 2014 or 2003? It feels like 2003 to me. It is unsettling to hear similar words as we heard then at the beginning of the Iraq war. There is evil in the world and we have to destroy it. Really?

There is evil intent in the world; that’s for sure. And sometimes we have to stand up to it. But how do we do that? It is certainly a tremendous problem to have a terrorist group exerting its power, hurting people and taking over land that has not been its own. But is the attitude of “destroying” it the correct one? What the attitudes are within the mass consciousness determines what will happen next. No matter what we’re told about “polls”, what do people really think about what is happening? Do we agree with the plan to destroy “evil”? To have endless war? It reminds me of the saying “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.”

We know that there is tremendous light coming into the planet and that it is uncovering many things hidden that need to be transformed. And we know that the “old order” is fighting desperately to stay in control. The chaos in the world is higher than ever before. I encourage you to participate in whatever way resonates with you in this situation for the highest good of all through prayer, mediation, reciting mantras, grounding and joining in group activities like the ones listed below. As we hold the light for peace, and achieve that state within ourselves, we can make a difference.

As one of my daughters playfully says when something needs to be done right away, Right now, Right now! Now is the time to stand in Love for the world. This very moment. Right now, Right now! Namaste’, Mary

See this latest article on the GMO fight on Hawaii between the people and corporations.

“Hawaii is one of the most biologically diverse, as well as spectacularly beautiful, places in the world, but the chemical companies have been turning the islands into experimental laboratories, unleashing a fountain of pesticides and genetically engineered material into the air, land and waters,” said Paul Achitoff, Earthjustice managing attorney based in Honolulu.“We stand with the people of Hawaii Island who are trying to protect their island from being transformed into another toxic waste dump.”

July 15th (Tuesday) is the deadline for public comments to the FCC on their proposal for Net Neutrality. What’s being considered is creating a “fast lane” which would involve a financial charge and faster delivery on the internet for larger companies that pay this fee. The alternative is to reclassify the internet as a utility which would allow it to be regulated without a charge; this would preserve an open internet for all.

Here’s the link to post your comments on net neutrality to the FCC.; the deadline is July 15th (Tuesday) Here’s a helpful YouTube from Gov Howard Dean discussing the issues. Reclassify broadband as a utility; don’t create a fast lane for the 1%.

There’s a powerful full moon today in Scorpio and tomorrow  May 15th, is an important day to take action to protect net neutrality. We all get busy with our lives and are not always aware of what’s going on in the bigger scheme of things. Tomorrow opens a window of time when we can have our voices heard about new rulings that are being proposed about the internet, rulings that would give power once again to the corporations and take away the equal playing fields that exists now where we can communicate  What does this mean and how would it affect you and more importantly freedom of speech in this country and all over the world. Educate yourselves about this very important issue and take action by making a comment to the FCC about their proposal which is being released tomorrow. This is not time to be complacent. On May 15th, organizations across the country are staging a massive protest outside of the FCC building in Washington, D.C. Here’s a link that explains what is going on.

I have written about social action a lot because we are at a crossroads and we have been there for awhile, but layer upon layer of opportunities seem to be unfolding for us to respond to if we will. It is easy to become apathetic in regards to the conditions of the world because they seem to go on and on and frankly darkness, ignorance, and negative intent don’t really change. It is our response to them that needs to change; we need to reclaim our power.

Our power has been taken away on this planet over eons of time. This is the opening where that can change that if we take a stand for what we believe in. We don’t have to be victimized unless we allow it. Here’s a quote from my book Kicking and Screaming to Enlightenment, A Journey to the Real Self.


There is nothing more important than reclaiming our power at this point in time because it will determine the future direction of our planet and our evolution.” Mary Bell 2010


I enjoy watching TV some of the time and I typically will be skeptical about a new show by its name alone, only to find out later that my first impression was not correct and it is actually a good show. That’s what happened with a new show this Spring called Mind Games. I thought for sure it would be another low caliber show like Betrayal or Killer Women on ABC; shows I didn’t even watch to know they would not be my taste in entertainment. But Mind Games surprised me; they actually portrayed physic ability in a responsible way and were laying down some good ideas into the mass consciousness, caring about good outcomes for people without controlling them or interfering with their free will. I was impressed, given the quality of lot of shows of this type. Then, all of a sudden, the show was gone. It took me a few weeks to look it up online, only to see that it had been canceled without even finishing out the season. I ranted about that for a while, even writing an email to ABC complaining. Then I decided to watch the last episode I had seen again, only to see what I think may have been the problem. The subject of the last episode was about GMOs and how a corporation was hiding the side effects which were harming people. In the end, this was exposed and the GMO product was taken off the market. The very next day, the show was cancelled. Hmmm! My guess is that Monsanto or someone in the higher echelon had a fit! Wonder if the truth will come out or if anyone besides me has complained? Do they really think that no one knows the truth about GMOs or are suspicious that they don’t want to label our food so that we can make choices about what we eat? Sounds to me like this was too much of an exposure and good use of TV time to educate people.

I found this article online today; it is very encouraging. We are actually making some headway in getting our food labeled thanks to Vermont and other states that are passing laws that require GMO foods to be labeled. Once a few states require this, there will be a snowball affect. It’s not over buy we’re on the way to stopping the tainting of our food supply in this way. Many Blessings, Mary

Monsanto and Big Food Losing the GMO and Natural Food Fight



In January 2012 we defeated the SOPA and PIPA censorship legislation with the largest Internet protest in history. Today we face another critical threat, one that again undermines the Internet and the notion that any of us live in a genuinely free society: mass surveillance.

In celebration of the win against SOPA and PIPA two years ago, and in memory of one of its leaders, Aaron Swartz, we are planning a day of protest against mass surveillance, to take place this February 11th.

Together we will push back against powers that seek to observe, collect, and analyze our every digital action. Together, we will make it clear that such behavior is not compatible with democratic governance. Together, if we persist, we will win this fight.



If you’re in the US: Thousands of websites will host banners urging people to call/email Congress. We’ll ask legislators to oppose the FISA Improvements Act, support the USA Freedom Act, and enact protections for non-Americans.

If you’re not in the US: Visitors will be asked to urge appropriate targets to institute privacy protections.

As a long time lover of Hawaii (I have traveled there many times over the years) I spent two months on Kauai there last summer and was surprised to see what was going on there with GMO’s and the corporate world. Hawaiians have come together to fight the good fight with Mansanto and other groups now who are barraging their beautiful islands with GMO seeds and pesticides which have dangerous side effects. Now they’re going to federal court; we need to support them. This article explains it all:
