BUILDING THE RAINBOW BRIDGE
I had the great pleasure of studying deeply and dancing in shamanic ceremony with Brooke Medicine Eagle in person, on many fabulous occasions during my "formative years" in 1999-2004. Both on the land here in New England (Massachusetts and Vermont) and on her home land of Montana.
Working with reverence and honor, for the Earth, and for all creatures living on it, with all the elements and Walking the Path of Beauty. Shamanic Journeys, Vision Quests, and deep felt inner explorations with her included the first time I heard about THE RAINBOW BRIDGE. I was working and studying with her extensively when she published her second book, and as
I renew my own Inner Creation and work this week building and re-building a re-newed level of myself as THE RAINBOW BRIDGE, I recall, re-read and share with you this excerpt from her book....
"The Rainbow Bridge to a Renewed Earth
(from The Last Ghost Dance: A Guide for Earth Mages by Brooke Medicine Eagle)
All of us alive on Lady Gaia at this time have the opportunity to be an active part of the Rainbow of Light that creates the bridge into a new and Golden Time for All Our Relations and us. At this point in human history, we have the opportunity to literally bring Heaven to Earth. Our ability to visualize and believe that it is possible for us to lift ourselves up, to pick up the profound work of our Earthly ancestors and move responsibly into our own piece of the action, and to fully embody Spirit is what will make this ascension possible. The exciting part is that we have the opportunity to complete something Mother Earth and humanity have been working on for aeons.
The Rainbow Bridge to a renewed Earth was first shown to me in a vision given me by White Buffalo Calf Pipe Woman, the mysterious holy woman who came many generations ago to a small group of Lakota people, bringing the Sacred Pipe that represents the Oneness and holiness of the Circle of Life. She, whose name is often shortened to White Buffalo Woman, has been an inner guide and teacher to me and to many others of this generation, as her wisdom invites us to walk in a sacred manner on Earth, honoring All Things, not only as our family, but literally as part of our wholeness.
This particular time, she took me to stand at the edge of an enormous chasm made of black, shiny stone and asked me to look around. Looking across the gap, I saw a sight that thrilled my heart. On the other side was a radiantly golden world. Everything had an iridescent aura, like we sometimes see on a spring morning after rain when the dew picks up the many-colored light. There were people and animals there on a broad, flowering plain under crystal snowcapped peaks—with no sound but a soft breeze and happy laughter. Out of the sacred groves of enormous trees on the hillsides came rushing pure, clear water. Children and young animals played there together, splashing and laughing and drinking the water without fear. Two-leggeds went about peacefully and joyfully, developing and exchanging their gifts and talents, taking in the radiant energy for nourishment and nibbling for their sweet taste the fruits and plants that grew about them in profusion. Happy songs of birds and people and the calls of contented animals echoed across. It was a glorious place—a golden dream for us and All Our Relations. I yearned to go there.
Then I turned to look behind me and was aghast at what I saw. There was smog on the horizon and acridness in the air, which I could see was harming all the living things upon which it settled, for everything had a dull, gray hue. There was arguing and fighting and warring, repression and prejudice, with everyone grasping what they could for themselves while snarling at others. Noise—screeching and pounding and roaring—filled the air. The scream of chain saws bespoke cutting the precious trees on the hills. Everything possible was being eaten, which made the people heavy yet did not nourish them. The lost, homeless, dispossessed, and sick lay all about, with many dying at the feet of those who hurried past. People wandered about, seeming alone and frightened even among their own kind. The deep hunger and need and grief of all filled the air.
I wanted desperately to get to the radiant life on the other side of the chasm. Yet as I leaned cautiously to peer over the edge, I could not see the bottom: the dark, slick rock dropped out of sight in the mist on both sides. The gap was much too wide to jump, and I had no other means to cross. A wailing cry erupted from my throat as I realized I could not get there.
All the while, White Buffalo Woman had stood beside me. Now she looked at me with compassion and said,
"The bridge upon which you will cross into that beautiful life on a renewed and flowering Earth will be a bridge of light." Then she sent from within herself a rainbow of light that jumped across the chasm to rest on the other side. "To make a bridge, the light must become a rainbow. It is the only way!"
I looked at her, still in desperation, because I did not know how to make a rainbow.
"To make a rainbow, all colors of light must be included. None can be left out, or there will be no bridge." And she went on to help me understand the deeper meaning of this symbol she had given me: "When I say 'all colors,' I am referring to all things, all peoples, all beings. None can be left out. You must walk a sacred walk, acknowledging, honoring, respecting, communing, and cooperating with all things and beings in the Circle of Life. No one, nothing, can be left behind. You must live a life of inclusiveness, union, and sharing—letting the Light of Love flow freely among you. When all are included in a good way, the discordant song will become harmony and the light will automatically become a rainbow. Thus, all of you who are alive become the rainbow Upon which the generations cross into this new and Golden Time.
The rainbow also represents another aspect of our movement into this new time: lightening up! It reminds you that you will find joy and happiness by creating them through singing, dancing, and celebrating together in gratefulness for the beauty Creator has given. You must release your heaviness and those things that burden you— lifting your attitude, practice, and vibration to a higher level. You must let what you love and what brings joy call you forward from moment to moment, for in no way can you bring this radiant time by doing things that displease or deenergize you. Rather than working for it, you must dance your lives as the old ones did. Nurturing ceremony and joyful celebration will be not only the hallmarks but also the means into this wonderful future."
This vision, which affected me so poignantly then, still calls to me deeply. That iridescent scene of a renewed Earth beckons me every day of my life. I seek to unroll that dream before me as I walk, as one would lay out a beautiful carpet. Having stepped forward, I realize that the polluted scene lives within me as well as outside of me, and that, for me, awakening the dream into reality means cleansing myself of the attitudes, beliefs, and actions that comprise it, in order that I may invite others to do the same.
I also realize that the beautiful, iridescent place already exists on a certain plane of reality. It is the gift Creator has offered us from the beginning of time, if we will only cleanse the smog from our eyes and choose that sacred path.
Now, another vision has joined this one—a vision of another Rainbow, half of which has already been created and sent forth. During the time of European expansion and aggressive conquering of the Americas, Father Spirit sent a Messianic vision of this radiant land on "the other side" to a succession of tribal people, the most famous of whom was a Paiute named Wovoka, who shared it with the natives far and wide. They were shown a radiant life similar to that which White Buffalo Woman opened before me. Their visions came over a four-hundred-year period when subjugation, decimation, and finally genocide were taking place among American native peoples. The white man's greed for land and wealth was laying waste to the native tribes. Their lives were shattered, their homelands ravaged, the buffalo slaughtered and rotting in the sun, their families murdered, their dreams broken.
These radiant visions, and the Christ figure known as Dawn Star who brought them, gave the ravaged people renewed hope, offering them a way to re-create an even more beautiful life. Through the Spirit Dance they had been given, they would bring to life their golden dream. Their murdered relatives would walk again on green and flowering land; all that was destroyed would be made whole. It was to be a new world in which Earth and spirit are as one. So in the latter days, they made the shirts shown in Wovoka's vision, using what little leather was left or flour sacks from the meager rations given them on the new reservations; and they circled in the entrancing dance that was shown them. They called upon their loved ones, so many hundreds now on the side of Spirit, to lift them up into this radiant dream. They danced that golden dream into the ground, set it into the reality of the Earth plane, made their half of the Rainbow. Then even that dream was shattered. At Wounded Knee, innocent, peaceful people of the Ghost Dance were murdered by the cavalry because the fearful white nation did not see the peaceful, beautiful dream that could unfold from it.
Those dancers lifted into Spirit, to hold their half of the Rainbow until we of the present human generation could awaken and dance the other half into the ground of reality in this world. The vision White Buffalo Calf Pipe Woman gave me is the same vision; it has been given into the hearts and minds of many of this generation—it is alive and well. The Ancient Ones and native peoples have known and held these powerful dreams down through time. Although they seem to fade with our attention on other things, a fine, strong thread connects us to them. Our present task is to draw their essence forth and to weave a web of beauty upon which to dance our lives."

Coast to Coast Gridworker's Chat
On this "episode" of Inner Space Convos, I get together with Merissa Indigo to discuss our current grid working activities, some ongoing projects, and to share a fun Crystalline Gridkeeper's code exchange Andara crystal exchange. We speak about uniting energies of Lemuria and Atlantis. Code exchange with the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, and how the North America solar eclipse cycle and corridor of 2017 - 2024 plays a role. We also recap some of the "fun" and eruptive energies unearthed by the March equinox, and how that is unfolding for each of us, and the sacred sites we work with. We also share some new projects we are both revealing this month.
Fairy Queen of the Woods
Ladyslipper, Venus' Shoes
I had a magical sublime morning woods walk the other day, where I was greeted by a large stand of Lady Slippers. In my area, these special flowers are endangered, protected and a rare sighting. I have NEVER seen a full field of them like I did on this day. Usually there are on or maybe two together. They are elusive. An encounter is rare and special. After my own sighting, and posting a picture on Facebook, I had so many friends contact me with similar sightings. So many people have seen LadySlippers this June around here! And many have commented on how many there were together, unusually high numbers.
I have been doing a bit of research about why or how this is happening this spring. Was it the long cool wet season we had that made just the right conditions? Maybe. But you know me, I like to dig a bit deeper and uncover any spiritual or energetic significance as well. When I saw my field of pink beauties, I had an immediate stellar feeling. Like they were a constellation, like the Pleiades or Seven Sisters. Like they were a sign or a message for me somehow.
The art and skillset of reading the signs is called decoding. Reading and interpreting the codes, the signs you are presented with on your path is a huge exciting thing. Following that proverbial trail of breadcrumbs is an exciting adventure.
The color and the shape and the overall signature of the Ladyslipper is certainly reminiscent of Venus. The juicy lush rich pink of the goddess. Since we are in a strong time of Venus Codes and in an important layer of the 8 year Venus synodic cycles (layers of 8, 13, 584 and 5 - pentagram as Venus dances with the sun and earth) - I had a contemplation, a feeling sense that maybe the strong showing of the Ladyslipper this spring was associated with the Venus energy.
How do I confirm or "back up" an inner knowing and a hunch like this? With a little online research, I had a jaw drop amazed confirmation moment yesterday.
Another name for Ladyslipper Flower is Venus' Shoes.
Well alright alright....how much more of a confirmation would I need than THAT?? Woo Hoo!
Cypripedium reginae, known as the showy lady's slipper, pink-and-white lady's-slipper, or the queen's lady's-slipper, is a rare lady's-slipper orchid native to northern North America. Although never common, this plant has vanished from much of its historical range due to habitat loss.
Names: The genus Cypripedium is derived from several Greek words that mean "Venus's shoe" - the slipper. The species name reginae is Latin for "of a queen". Common names also include fairy queen, white wing moccasin, royal lady's slipper, nervine, and silver-slipper.
"The greatest prize of the swamp is our state flower, the showy Cypripedium, the pink and white Lady’s-slipper, a member of the orchid family. No flower, wild or cultivated, is more magnificent than this. The plant is the tallest of the genus and has the broadest leaves and the largest and most beautifully tinted flowers, often bearing two on one stalk. Only North American Indian ladies wear slippers of this style, and the precise always call them moccasins. Goddesses, also, must have approved of this kind of footgear, for the scientific name, Cypripedium, means Venus’ shoes." Published June 18, 1911, Sunday Minneapolis Tribune
A Native Legend - A Chippewa brave had a beautiful sister who always wanted to go along on hunting trips with him. He always refused and if she followed he would send her back. At last, as he was leaving on a lengthy trip, she hid on the trail until he was out of sight, then she followed. In the woods she became lost and could not find her way back. When her brother returned, he and the village set out on a search for her. Villagers started fires to send smoke signals, but a strong wind fanned the flames into the woods and burned a large area, including where the maiden was lost.
When spring came and the snow melted the people found a new flower of pink and white on the hill side, shaped like a shoe or moccasin. The flowers led in a path into to the woods where the remains of the maiden were found. Where ever she had stepped, a flower had formed and they have continued to bloom since.
Thank you sweet Ladyslipper for showing me so much! You are pure magic and delight! Fairy Queen INDEED!! I am off to go frolic in the woods and encounter more...if they so chose to bestow upon me their grace.
The Feathered Serpent ReAwakens
On Monday, May 25, a dear friend and fellow gridworker sent me this photograph. My immediate full field reaction was Quetzalcoatl !!! I myself had a close encounter of the communicative kind with a snake (or two) in my garden over the weekend. Either I had multiple snakes in my yard, or this one snake basically followed me around for several hours. He had a LOT to say to us. It was a Parseltounge moment for sure! We also saw the snake stalk, creep up on and swallow a HUGE nightcrawler worm whole. It was equally horrifying as it was amazing. The thing was like a third of the size of the snake. Gulp, down the hatch. This encounter, coupled with my friend’s light encoded light being in the clouds photo was a double sign, double confirmation. This is how we teamwork and download info and encoded wisdom from the Living Library of Light!
Now, I have heard of this being Quetzalcoatl, and vaguely knew he was from stories from Central America and Mexico but did not know much more. Was he a bird turned into a snake? I quickly started receiving downloads on Quetzalcoatl, both energetic and light code info directly from source, and via some online research and reading. Yesterday the pieces all wove themselves together….and I want to share the intel with you!
Points of my reading that grabbed my attention…
The Feathered Serpent. The Rainbow. The Association with Venus. The tale of the two brothers, one as the Evening Star and one as the Morning Star. That Quetzalcoatl is the gatekeeper and conductor of Venus, as the planet transitions from a period of many months’ time being an evening star, bright in the night sky. To a period of us on earth not being able to see Venus. When Venus is “consumed” by the sun, when they are aligned in the same spot in the sky, also knows as a conjunction. Then Venus emerges as the Dawn Star. Many sacred temples in Mexico and Central America are aligned to the setting and rising cycles of Venus. There is power and importance here!
The sacred site Teotihuacan, an ancient Mesoamerican city, on the outskirts of modern Mexico City, has a temple dedicated to Quetzalcoatl – the Feathered Serpent Pyramid.
I reached out to another grid worker friend who has spent time in person grid working at many sites in Mexico. She confirmed and added puzzle pieces to the Teotihuacan and Feathered Serpent awakening story. We also noticed the lines of flow that run from the Feathered Serpent Pyramid, up through North America, to Niagara Falls, through the snake effigy rich fertile Ohio Valley, along the rivers. Niagara Falls was where this first picture was captured.
The Snake effigy mounds in Ohio and the central plains of North America are all heavily involved in this current reawakening too. I saw the line of awakening light beam from the Feathered Serpent Pyramid site, up through the Arkansas crystal beds, up the side river valley towards the great lakes, in and through Ohio, and on up the way to Buffalo and beyond. There were many other rays and beams activating as well. The underground inner earth space energies are flowing so strong right now!!
And VENUS. Venus is in the glare of the sun, and is in full conjunction, it’s orbital path passing between the earth and the sun on June 3, 2020.
Sun Conjuncts Pleiades May 22
Ancient cultures used this easily visible and distinguishable star cluster of the Pleiades to signify important seasonal markers, such as the spring equinox, the time to plant crops or the opening to seafaring season.
In ancient myths, this was a time that these stars would descend into “the underworld” or below the horizon. Astronomically, we know that the Sun has caught up with the Pleiades on its annual path across the ecliptic, the travel path of the sun and planets. On May 22 the sun moves to conjunct the Pleiades Star cluster in the constellation Taurus. Pleiades are moving into the bright glare of the Sun, and rise and set with the sun, and for those of us viewing from planet earth they are not visible at night.
When a star or planet lines up with the sun in our sky we say that they conjunct each other. During this time, the sun amplifies and sends codes from this star system to us on earth. We as gatekeepers conduct and welcome this energy and light and star encoded information into our own bodies, and then birth it onto earth and deliver it into the earth grids.
I am sharing this info with you, so that if you are called, you can actively work with this PLEIADES STARGATE AND GATEWAY energy. Each of us will be called to work with the energy and star and sun light codes in different and unique ways. Simply sitting out in the sun, and making an intention to connect with the Sun and Pleiades is "doing it". You do it by being YOU. If you are called to draw, dance or move, sing or tone, work with crystals or andaras, all that is amazing too. Connect in, from your core, to the core of the sun, the core of each star. Amazing things will happen friends. You are the light conduit. You are the light anchor and pathway. You are a light conductor. Conduct away!!!
From the Source of ALL - to the core of our galaxy, out to each star, including or sun, to you, into the earth.
For those of us that are called to work with this Pleiades Stargate – here are the significant dates. (and always remember, we work with quantum light and energy grids, so dates are less important than intention)
Spring 2020 Significant Pleiades Alignments
April 4: Venus Conjunct Pleiades – Diamond Activation – The Squeeze
May 10-13: Heliacal Setting of the Pleiades
The last visible setting of the Pleiades. The Pleiades “goes dark” or becomes invisible from earth from May 13 – June 4
MAY 13 - LAST HELIACAL SETTING OF THE PLEIADES
MAY 13 - JUNE 4 PLEIADES SOLAR GATEWAY
Pleiades are inside the glare of the sun and not visible for this time
MAY 22 - SUN CONJUNCTS PLEIADES
NEW MOON CONJUNCTS PLEIADES
VENUS CONJUNCTS MERCURY
JUNE 3 - SUN CONJUNCTS VENUS - Inferior Conjunction of Venus with the Sun is Exact on 3 Jun 2020 1:43:29 pm EDT in Gemini
JUNE 4 - HELIACAL RISING OF PLEIADES - The Sun, Venus and Pleiades are in a line up - as Venus dances onto the other side of the solar plane - and at 4:07 am on June 4, the Pleiades peeks over the horizon in the predawn sky.
JUNE 19 - MOON CONJUNCTS VENUS - The Moon moves between Earth and Venus, making a transit, and the moon is the sliver crescent moon, effectively "cupping" Venus as it rises at 4 am (EDT time). It happens within the Hyades, near Aldebaran.
Hidden In Plain Sight
Hidden in plain sight!!!
I’ve driven by this spot thousands of times over decades.
Just last week these enormous split tower boulders caught my eye. I was all...what the blip are THOSE ?!?
Got to go in on foot today.
It is spectacular and full of alignments. At cursory scan with phone compass I say spilt is oriented to summer solstice set (270 deg).
The large snake stone wall is direct north south aligned, and snakes around so that this split is at the “head”. The “small one” is a good 7 feet. Taller than me. The other two, hard to judge, at least 20 feet tall. Maybe more.
So many features left to unlock and discover here!! I’ll be back!
Pre Dawn Planetary Line Up
Many of us have been waking up in “the wee hours” of the night.
If you are awake tonight/tomorrow morning anytime after 2 am you can go outdoors or to an East facing window and look for an auspicious line up in the nighttime pre dawn sky.
Pluto & Jupiter pop over the horizon about 2:22 am
Followed by Saturn around 2:40 am
Mars rises around 3:15 am
And the Moon is above horizon line at 3:40 am
(All these times listed are EDT Boston time)
No wonder so many of us are waking up in these wee hours of the early morning. The planets are calling and singing us awake!!
Since you are awake anyway, why not communicate and tune in to the planetary body energy.
You could note the time your eyes pop awake. And see if it correlates with one of the rises.
Please note, the times I listed are horizon markers, meaning you would need to be on a beach or open field facing East to see that early. Depending on the lay-off your landscape, the times will be quite later before you can see them above trees, hills, other houses and buildings.
Look EAST 🌟🌟💛💛
Working with Storm Energy
There is an incredible amount of grief and sadness washing through the earth energy grids, and the human heart grids this morning.
Specifically to my fellow east coast USA folks....that storm cleared an incredible swath of the eastern part of the continent. I’ve been gridworking with storms and storm energy for many years now. This weekend and yesterday storm field was THE MOST intense we have worked with yet.
The water element of storm work is always working with the emotional body of the collective. It is like the water of the storm picks up, is encoded with the emotions of the people in the cities and towns along its path. This one not only was huge in the area it covered across the continent, it was infused with all the fear anger grief sadness so many are experiencing right now.
So much was unearthed and upturned and revealed.
The process of it was intense in itself. The emotional aftermath that many of us are experiencing this morning is also part of it. Although the sun is out here and the winds are lighter, there is an INTENSE heaviness in the air, in the heart. It is still in the process of clearing out.
I write this for myself, and for anyone else who may be working with this energy this morning. And not quite knowing where and why this heaviness and deep grief and sadness is around this morning.
It is not just you. It is “ok” to feel it deeply. Tears will flow. Breaking points will be reached. Many many of us are. It will be integrating and moving along all day today. Be gentle with yourself.
We got this!!
For New York and New England people....in particular this is a huge one!!
Shine on You Crazy Diamond!!
Diamond Light Codes -
Transmitted by the Sun, and by Venus -
Interplay of sunlight and this Diamond Light Team of Andaras. All pictures and videos are my originals, not filters or edits. This diamond rainbow light show is even more brilliant and spectacular in person. Did my best to capture the diamond Light Codes and in particular the Rainbow Dancer Andara in action.
This Diamond Light Team of Andaras has four members. Green. Blue. Pink. Clear.
They work and code together in synergy. They each transmit a portion or fastest of the incoming Diamond Light Codes. This team has been outside on this porch rail for a month, working with sun light and facing the evening southwest sky for communication with Venus. Venus has been flashing its diamond codes in our evening sky. These andaras interact with, absorb, and rebroadcast these codes directly to your light body. Relax, receive, and allow this light to infuse and nourish your light body. A great way to “recharge” and sparkle like a diamond. My original photographs and video set to the song track Liquid Light by Saint of Sun, used with gratitude to convey the activations.
