We are living during powerful times on the earth, times of great change, purification and transformation, times of deep healing and spiritual awakening. Many of us feel these changes and stirrings deep within our hearts and Souls.

Our Hearts ache, our Souls yearn, our Spirits cry out…..

We know that the old ways of being no longer serve us, or Mother Earth and we are ready for deep change, healing and transformation.

We feel ourselves awakening.....

We feel stirrings deep within to heal and transform like never before.

We long to break free from what causes us suffering.

We are ready to break out of old boxes….

Ready to heal the wounds from our childhood….

Ready to break free of addictive and abusive patterns,
relationships and ways of being…..

Ready to heal and release old personal, cultural, familial and ancestral patterns once and for all so that we may truly be free, free to be and express the Soul Essence of Who we REALLY are.


We sense a new way of being that resonates with our Soul.

We see glimpses of a new vision for our lives & the Mother Earth.

We long to live more sacred & meaningful lives with healthy relationships, families & work we love, to truly live our Higher Purpose on this beloved Earth Gaia.

We long to have a personal connection with our Creator and with the natural cycles of the Earth & larger Universe.

We long for connection with our Human Soul Family and to live in harmony and balance upon our blessed Earth, where Unity, Love, Compassion, Equality, Higher Truth thrive.


You are not alone...We are ALL in this together..... What you are feeling is part of a larger collective “rite of passage” on the earth as we transition from and “old age” and paradigm to a New Age and way of being.

We’re the Ones
From The Elders of the Hopi Nation, Oraibi, Arizona

You have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh Hour. Now you must go back and tell the people that this is The Hour. And there are things to be considered:

Where are you living? What are you doing? What are your relationships? Are you in right relation? Where is your water? Know your garden. It is time to speak your Truth. Create your community. Be good to each other. And do not look outside yourself for the leader. This could be a good time!

There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel they are being torn apart, and they will suffer greatly. Know the river has its destination. The Elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above the water.

See who is in there with you and celebrate.

At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally. Least of all, ourselves. For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt. The time of the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves! Banish the word “struggle" from your attitude and your vocabulary.

All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.

We are the Ones we’ve been waiting for.
