Solstice, Celebration and Meaning

December 22, 2011 In our home we celebrate the Solstice, not Christmas, which is for many people becoming increasingly a time of despair and anxiety.  Solstice is one of the Sabbats that has been celebrated throughout time, and for us, it holds far more meaning than the often stress-filled day society tells us we must celebrate.  When we lived in Sydney, we used to hold a Boxing Day gathering for all our circle of friends who were traumatised by their family get togethers.  There were a lot of them!  So Boxing Day became a healing day with spiritual family. Walking through a Canberra Mall last week to get new dog tags engraved for the dogs, I was overwhelmed by the massive despair that this time of celebration and giving is still creating.  Being an empath, I was feeling teary from the collective sorrow and stress. Truly, it is time for a massive overhaul of how we consider celebrating Christmas. Talking to people in that mall, I found many were embracing a different … [Read more...]

Surviving the Current Energies

December 8, 2012 It has to be a cosmic joke. Christmas is usually an emotionally frayed enough time without Mercury in retrograde, but we’ve had three weeks of it! Mercury goes forward on December 13. Hooray! When Mercury goes, retrograde it is a good time to go within.  And with the energies of the moment being particularly touchy, if you can go within I would highly advise it. Eat lunch alone! Out in nature. It’s a good time to duck and hide. Hibernate even. Because this Mercury Retrograde is heightened by the December 10th Lunar Eclipse, the 12/12/11 Gateway, and solar flares, it might makes people very stressed if they don’t understand what is going on. Here at home, we put our heads down and work and tend animals, and it is like we are in our own world. But the number of cries for help are coming in good and fast, so I know people are struggling with this, this time. Don’t worry. We’ll have a new gateway soon. But the essence of it is that we have to do our personal … [Read more...]

Divine Love Healing Circle – December 11, 2011

Hi everyone, My next Divine Love Healing Circle will be held at the Full Moon, December 11, 2011. Here is how it works. If you would like one or more animals included in this particular Divine Love Healing Circle, leave a comment on this blog post giving the animal's name and breed.  On the the above date, I will conduct  a Divine Love Healing Circle, where I send Divine Love and Deep Forgiveness to the animals listed here, along with the ones who are in my care. To be clear, I don’t send healing. I send Divine Love and Deep Forgiveness, which is like a blessing for the Highest Good.  That is because I believe it is not up to us to send healing, especially when there is no permission from the person to whom that healing is directed.  Every being has their own soul journey.  By sending Divine Love and Deep Forgiveness, all human ego is out of the way and only pure Divine energy is invoked. Again, if you want to register your animal for this healing circle, leave a comment … [Read more...]

11/11/11 Gateway – Guidance from Nature

November 10, 2011 This is the second part of a two-part series on the 11/11/11 Gateway. You might like to check out part one, as well as this video about the 11/11/11 opportunity. I was walking the dogs in the green back hills of my home, and as usual the wind and the trees were talking to me. I was told to “be aware but not afraid”. I was also told to embody peace and know that the fifth dimension was already here. So the tree/wind guidance was to make decisions and actions from that beautiful place of the fifth dimension, and this was everything I had been sensing. The 11/11/11 gateway is almost upon us and you might be feeling  its impending with a drum roll. I am! The weather here in our own little Avalon is unsettled and restless, yet I sense a downpouring of light and hope. In my own self I am incredibly excited for the changes this gateway will bring. And I have learnt to trust the feelings within my body. Look at the photo above that I snapped just recently … [Read more...]

The Opportunity of 11/11/11

10 November 2011 I invite you to join me in meditating for peace for eleven minutes on 11/11/11 starting at 11:00 and finishing at 11:11.  As I have written about here and here, together we can help bring in the new world that we all want.

So, again, please join me and thousands of people from around the world, as we create a morphic field together, blanketing the world with peace, and as I always say, deep peace for all species. … [Read more...]

11/11/11: Creating Deep Peace for All Species

October 24, 2011 This is the first part of a two-part series on the 11/11/11 Gateway. You might like to check out part two, as well as this video about the 11/11/11 opportunity. I'm so excited to be launching The Billie Dean International Deep Peace Organisation and it's Deep Peace Movement on 11/11/11 -- a very special day for peace on the planet. "Deep Peace for All Species" is the catch cry for this not-for-profit  set up to expand our work of education through the arts and also compassionate action for animals.   It promotes freedom and peace for animals, so they no longer have to live in fear.  I chose 11/11/11 for the international launch because thousands of people will be focussed on peace on that day. 11/11/11 is the portal and opportunity we have been waiting for.  My personal spiritual guidance has been to pencil in nothing for this day, except meditation and ceremony, time with the family, and stillness. I know many other people were picking that up as well -- … [Read more...]

Equinox Energies and Animal Transmissions

September 23, 2011 The Equinox is a special day for doing fire ceremony and setting your intention for what you want, after shedding whatever it is you don’t want.  It is a day of balance and harmony.  It is made even more powerful by coinciding with the Sixth Night of the Mayan Calendar and truly a time to let go any old stories of the past forever.  A good time to ask the fire to help you dissolve the chains of karma. The world needs us to be happy and alive because of the morphogenic field factor.  This means that we affect the world around us with our mood and emotions.  If we raise our vibration, we can shift the experience of the world around us.  So this is why I keep talking about finding out what it is that brings you joy, and setting your intention to do more of it. What are your priorities? And think of this not so much in an old third dimensional way, because that way no longer exists for so many of us.  Think of it as new.  Really think.  What is it you want?  … [Read more...]

R.I.P. Clea, the Beautiful German Shephard, and Mari, the Goose

September 23, 2011 Clea’s shade is in the bedroom, next to the bed, urging me out for a walk.  “Come on, my dear,” she says enthusiastically.  “Let’s go and experience the day.” When I agree, she swishes her elegant sweeping tail and glides out of the house, a huge smile on her face – just as she did in life. Later, her shade is in the kitchen, where I am at the computer in the wee hours trying to finish some work. “Come to bed, my dear,” she says.  “You need your rest.” I can’t help the tears when I look up and she isn’t there.  She always waited for me to go to bed. Clea was a 13-year-old German Shepherd who came to us for hospice care.  She needed a home and we loved her and swore to make every day a jewel.  We believe in the healing ability of the joy factor.  And Clea’s time with us was pure joy. “Do you want dinner, Clea?”  Her eyes would light up and she would run again, to her spot on the verandah where we put her bowl on a table for her to eat – her nasal … [Read more...]
