On Friday Aug 22, out of the blue, Maurice Ravel’s masterpiece “Bolero” entered my consciousness through the Third Ear.  The impact was so powerful that I felt compelled to play it right away. I even recorded that first rudimentary version (http://wp.me/p1jFeo-OP) even though I had never played this piece before. At least not in this lifetime.

Since that time, “Bolero” has gotten under my skin like a worm, or an obsession.  I keep hearing this music during all my waking hours.

“Bolero” was even with me when I moved that 250-pound bench from one hill to another (BENCH CHALLENGE: THE DAY “MISSION IMPOSSIBLE” BECAME REALITY).   And “Bolero” was playing the entire time I was hauling yesterday the heavy coconut palm fronds (SPIKELESS COCONUT HARVEST SAVES PALMS).

“Bolero” was also the lullaby that whisked me off to sleep every night this week. And it was the first thing I heard upon waking up every morning.  Ravel’s music has evolved to the point that I could hear every quarter note of every instrument in this richly orchestrated piece, usually played by symphonies with 100 or more instruments.IMG_2208

You can see my hand-scratched notes for my own orchestration in that shot – right.  I almost never do that kind of thing. I usually just play my music and improvise every time.  The only other time I did something like that was with the “Blue Danube” in May of last year.

In short, since that fateful Friday a week ago, I have been playing nothing but “Bolero.”

Today, I asked Elizabeth if she was getting sick of hearing “Bolero” over and over ago. She said she was not, that she was enjoying the music even more the longer she listened.  Indeed, music like that tends to grow on you.

“Blue Danube” and “Bolero” – Two Peas in a Pod?

The only other time a piece of music had possessed me so completely was last May in Arizona.  That’s when Johann Strauss’ “Blue Danube” also overpowered all other musical sounds. Until I finally recorded it at the end of June in Maui [you can also see and hear the Clavinova version of it at the end of this story].

As a result, out of the 35 music videos I made last year, the “Blue Danube” ended up my “song of 2013.” And it looks like “Bolero” may end up as my “song of 2014,” even though I have already made 32 music videos to-date this year.


“Bolero” Also Helped My Music  Composition Skills

Furthermore, “Bolero” also helped me learn a wonderful feature of the Clavinova. I did not have all the sheet music for this piece. So I played some of the parts by ear. But I still wanted to be able to write down these improvisations.

I tried doing it the old “pedestrian” way – by hand. But I found out I was quite rusty. And very slow, not having written any such music in probably five decades.

So I decided to explore the Clavinova technology. And lo and behold, with the help of some Yamaha advisors, I was able to not just to have Clavinova transcribe my playing into sheet music, but was also able to actually print it. So now I have it on paper, not just in the instrument’s memory. 🙂

Bob 8-30-14

So today, I realized that the only way to loosen the grip of “Bolero” on my consciousness is to record it. To get it out of my system. And this morning, I felt I was finally ready to do it again. This time properly –  as perfect as I can make it as this stage. Which means this is a full 9-minute orchestral version – 11 variations, 2 intermezzos and a grand finale.

This recording also includes some innovations that Ravel did not write.  One of them is the use of Tibetan Singing Bowls which join the symphony orchestra in the grand finale. But there are a couple of others that connoisseurs of this masterpiece will recognize.

AHA – Sacred Place – Looks like a Crop Circle from the Sky

Thanks to Google Earth, Aerial and Satellite Images of the Rainbow Shower, Haiku, Maui show that Anahata-Huaca-Ahu – the sacred place – is in a perfect geometric center of the Triangle of Light

Using my intuition as inner guidance from my Spirit guides, I built it in the shape of Merkaba over a three-year period (2009-2011).  I had no idea why at the time. I had not even heard about the term Merkaba until after the sacred place was completed in 2011.

And then two years later, I discovered that crop circles of the nearly identical shape had cropped up in Wiltshire, England, in 2012 and 2013 respectively.

Another example of multidimensional celestial communication. That’s why I fell I was to share this piece.

Anahata Crop Circles Rainbow Shower

Merkaba is the original creation symbol (see “AHA Evolution 2013: Connecting Rainbow Shower to Crop Circles” (July 23, 2013). The Triangle of Light, in which geometric center the sacred place is, is what I had discerned in Arizona even before moving to Maui. Master Sphinx (Solar Lion), one of my guides, explained that to me two years ago (see this confidential transcript of our Aug 2012 conversation, PDF).

Rainbow Shower: Land of Milk and Honey

And now, from space back down to Earth… remember the stories about a “land of milk and honey?” They go as far back as Moses.

Nowadays, most of us have come to believe that they are just fables, tales of utopia, pigments of people’s imagination.

Well, I am here to show you a pictorial proof that the Rainbow Shower is a Land of Milk and Honey… 🙂


PS: For those of you who may be inclined to fall for this Labor Day spoof, write to me and I will give you an explanation of what happened in this scene. 🙂

If I said “Bolero,” what would be the first thing that comes to miMaurice_Ravel_1925nd?

If you are a baby-boomer like myself, chances are, that would be “10,” a 1979 movie starring Bo Derek as the “10.”

Sorry Maurice (Ravel, the composer of “Bolero” – right).  But your music is also a “10.”

For, Ravel’s “Bolero” frames one of the sexiest scenes ever filmed.

Well, I don’t know why, but yesterday afternoon, out of the blue, I started hearing the “Bolero” in my Third Ear (Pineal Gland). I have never played this piece before. So I thought it was a passing fad.  But when “Bolero” was still playing after midnight when Elizabeth and I went to bed, I figured there was a reason my Spirit guides wanted me to work on it.

So this morning I did.  Unshaven and unkempt,  I started doodling the tune on the piano while Elizabeth was making breakfast.  Later she admitted that at first she did not even recognize the music. [(meaning, it was so bad! 🙂 ]. But when I added the rhythm section, she started dancing.  Spontaneously.  So I knew I had something.

After breakfast, I continued working on the orchestration of the piece. And something quite amazing happened. “Bolero” practically played itself.  Within the hour, I had not only finished practicing it, but I had recorded the entire piece.

I cannot recall any other instance in which I went from inspiration to production in less than an hour! Perhaps that’s because Ravel’a music, such as “his Gaspard de la nuit, can be viewed as an extension of Liszt’s virtuosity and advanced harmonics,” according to Wikipedia Ravel bio.

After recording the “Bolero,” I then set out to find suitable videos to go with the piece…

Greetings from Hawaii!

Just back from joining you all in sacred space for the Global Mediation for Peace.  Mahalo (thanks) to all who joined in.

I did it the Peace meditation same way as the shamanic ceremonies I performed for the opening of the Solar Lion Stargate earlier this month (see OPENING OF SOLAR LION STARGATE 2014: CHANCE OF RENEWAL FOR ALL, Aug 3).

Carrying a lighted stick of Frankincense and Myrrh, I first went to IMG_4094all three Triangle of Light portals at the Rainbow Shower.  I finished the ceremony and the meditation at the Anahata-Huaca-Ahu, the center of the Triangle and the Heart Chakra of this planet (see above).

Here are some shots from it…

Venus Jupite 8-17-14


Between now and early Monday morning, Venus and Jupiter’s celestial dance will come to a climax. The two brightest planets will come as close to each other so as to almost become one, as viewed from the Earth.astronomy0807

To witness that momentous event with a naked eye, you will have to rise about an hour or so before sunrise tomorrow morning (Mon) and look to the east. But even today, Aug 17, they are close enough to seem as if they are touching.

Alas, it is already daylight here in Hawaii. No worries. I just used the Stellarium software which allows me to darken the atmosphere and turn day into night. And there is no doubt… Venus and Jupiter are already touching. And Venus is on top. 🙂

(“Tisk, tisk… and in broad daylight!” the Puritans may be complaining. 🙂 “Have they no shame?”)

Actually, the union between Venus and Jupiter has inspired artists for centuries. Here’s Raphael’s rendition created five centuries ago.


And, of course, who can forget the unforgettable Botticelli Venus or this Roman sculpture of Jupiter, nearly 2,000 years old?

Celebrating Venus-Jupiter (re)union through music


RAINBOW SHOWER, Maui, Aug 17, 2014, 12:10 PM – I just got back from doing my morning rounds of the Rainbow Shower.  As I was setting the shaman’s fireplace (right) inside IMG_4094 Shaman altar-fireplacethe Anahata-Huaca-Ahu (AHA), the sacred place (left), for tonight’s sunset ceremony marking the (re)union of Venus and Jupiter,  I had several memory flashbacks.  They included these two Jupiter  and Venus Chakana/Apuchetas which I constructed during the spring of 2010 (see “Living a Dream,” May 2010).

Jupiter Chakana_Apuchetas4_30 (12) Chakana_Apuchetas4_30 (15) RainbowShower_Apus_Planets

I am certain that was my Spirit guides reminding me that the Rainbow Shower is a planetarium (above right shot), among other things. And that its celestial network includes the Jupiter and Venus nodes.

So tonight, before I go down to the AHA to do a fire ceremony, I need to first open the sacred space at each, Venus and Jupiter, and then connect them through the AHA fire.

And then, something even more interesting happened. As I was walking by the Jupiter Chakana/Apucheta, I had another flashback. I must also connect them through music. And that, in fact, I had already done it several times.

Screen Shot 2014-08-17 at 12.02.21 PM

My original “Dance of the Planets” theme came to me at the exact same time as I had finished constructing the Rainbow Shower celestial network in May 2010 (check out the video at the end of this story).  And it has since evolved into a full-fledged musical suite which I (re)recorded just last month.

So that’s the music I also need to be playing tonight to mark the (re)union of the two brightest planets in our sky.

As if all this is not wondrous enough, after I finished this story, I asked for Spirit guidance for the day. And the card I drew was SACRED UNION (of twin souls). Like Venus and Jupiter. 🙂



Just back from the sunset fire ceremony at the Anahata-Huaca-Ahu (AHA), celebrating tonight’s conjunction of Venus and Jupiter, and joining the global HARMONIC CONVERGENCE AUGUST 17-18 2014 . TO ACTIVATE THE RAINBOW BRIDGE for Peace on Earth.

IMG_2134 IMG_2135

The fire was incredibly fast.  As a shaman who has seen and prayed with hundreds of fires, I can tell you that this evening, the Spirit just slurped up the prayers that went into the fire.

Perhaps it helped that throughout the ceremony, I was playing the “Anugama: Shamanic Dream” music on my iPhone?(http://youtu.be/Ms4BzTrQWc8) [Yes, modern shamans use iPhones, even my Inca brothers in the High Andes:-)]


And when the ceremony was over, something quite extraordinary happened.  Suddenly a blue smoke poured out of the dying fire.  Now that’s something I have not seen before.

It was clearly a response by the Spirit, more specifically Archangel Michael, to the Prayers for Peace on this ascending Blue Star Earth.  As you know, A. Michael is in charge of the Blue Ray of Love, Will and Grace.

I started playing this piece by the Fifth Dimension when it first came out in 1969. But I had not recorded it until Halloween 2011.  I did it playing the piano, flute and drums.

This is now my first orchestral/choral rendition of it.  And I played it in a 90F sweltering heat.

Screen Shot 2012-09-18 at 10.48.08 PM from Yellowstone Healing Ceremony, Sep 2012


We often hear stories about catastrophic results when man tries to play God and messes with nature. This video about the Yellowstone National Park, which I just got from a friend in Canada, may change your mind about it. It shows that man can sometimes successfully co-create with Mother Earth. Instead of catastrophic, in this case the result was a “trophic cascade.”

(“Trophic cascades” are powerful indirect interactions that can control entire ecosystems. Trophic cascades occur when predators limit the density and/or behavior of their prey and thereby enhance survival of the next lower trophic level.)

We’ve all heard about the “big bad wolf,” the “sheep in wolves clothing,” or the sweet little Bambi’s. Such fairy tales give the wolves a bad rap, and ironically glorify the animals even man kills for food (think venison, lamb chops).

Obviously, the wolves could use a better marketing agent. Walt Disney and the rest of the Hollywood crowd got it all wrong.

Because the facts are on the side of the wolves. Little Bambis’ grow up into big deer whose eating habits are positively destructive to the environment. We have even seen examples of that here at the Rainbow Shower in Maui. They killed several of our trees, including a beautiful Jacaranda and Kukui, the Hawaii State Tree.Yellowstone_Rainbow Shower peace flag

By contrast, the reintroduction of wolves into Yellowstone in 1995, after a 70-year absence, rejuvenated the entire ecology in the Park. The wolves even helped change the flow or rivers.

So it looks like the wolves finally got a good ad agency, one that works on facts not Hollywood fiction. This short video, wonderfully scripted and filmed on location in Yellowstone is 100% based on scientific truth. After you watch it, you may change your mind about the “big bad wolves” and the “sweet little Bambis.” It’s actually the other way around.

UPDATE DEC 30, 2015





A special Yuletime treat is spending some alone time with Wolf 965M of the Lamar Canyon Pack. He has been especially playful with the Lamar Canyon pups. This gently giant (all 120 pounds of him) has led many a pup parade, allowed them to climb all over him and played tug-of-war with whatever stick or bone might be nearby. And he has always been watchful of them.
He came over to the Lamar Canyon group from the Prospect Peak Pack (and the 8-Mile Pack before that), and still travels back to see his Prospect family from time to time.


He is suffering badly from mange right now, so send him your good thoughts for a full recovery. (Mange was introduced by humans into the ecosystem in the 1920s to eradicate the Wolf and Coyote populations.) — at Round Prairie, Yellowstone National Park.

Sarcoptic mange is a highly contagious canine skin disease caused by mites that burrow into the skin causing infections, hair loss, severe irritation and an insatiable desire to scratch. The resulting hair loss and depressed vigor of an infected animal leaves them vulnerable to hypothermia, malnutrition and dehydration, which can eventually lead to death.

Mange was introduced into the Northern Rockies in 1909 by state wildlife veterinarians in an attempt to help eradicate local wolf and coyote populations. Scientists believe the troublesome mite that causes the disease persisted among coyotes and foxes after wolves were exterminated.

Since their reintroduction into the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem in 1995-96, wolves appeared to be free of mange until 2002. As of March 2014, 2 of 8 known packs in Yellowstone National Park (YNP) have mange, mostly in the Northern Range, and the prevalence within a pack ranges from 25 to 60%.



To honor the Full Moon/Supermoon in Aquarius this weekend (see below), Screen Shot 2014-08-10 at 10.46.17 AMI have been working on new versions of Age of Aquarius and Let the Sunshine In from “HAIR.” They included a flute segment I recorded on Halloween 2011.

While I was working on the new version, this image popped into my head. And from there to the computer screen…

Altzar-Aquarius – Hawaiian Kokopelli

Maybe all this water energy is engulfing me because this afternoon, I went to our local beach for the first time since Father’s Day. And boy, was I ever banged about by the big surf. Hurricane Julio fortunately bypassed Maui by about 500 miles. But now he is sending his trailing waves to pound our shores.  And thereby change them and everything on them.

Power of the ocean.  Staying power of Aquarius.

Anyway, here is now the new rendition of that ageless music – “Age of Aquarius – from the musical “HAIR” (1969):

Which gave rise to this photo-artistic creation, a blend of Gemini and Aquarius under the Rainbow Shower rainbow. It is composed of still shots taken from the music video recording.

Sunday * 10th August 2014 * 08:09:24 am HST Moon sign: Aquarius 18° 02′

full-moon-aquarius unnamed 8.09.39 PM

This Moon is also what’s called a “Supermoon”… a Full Moon where the Moon is at one of its closest points in its orbit to us, and thus appears particularly large in the night sky. Why not look at it tonight if you can? It’s quite beautiful. 

You may wish to just meditate and pray honoring Mother Moon. Or if there is a wild streak somewhere in you, this is the time to let it burst out.

You see, astrologers say that Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, the planet that seeks freedom at all costs. Aquarius adores rebellion, daring to be different urgently and often. Furthermore, Aquarius energy is motivated by the needs of the group rather than the individual. So it fits perfectly this new Era of the Aquarius.

But lest we forget, we are still inside the Solar Lion Stargates. Supermoon in Aquarius under the Lions Stargate? That does not happen very often. What does it mean?

Aquarius is the polar opposite of Leo (where the Sun is currently creating the backdrop for this full Moon). Leo lives to be adored, or just liked. The Lion needs to have its ego stroked constantly. Aquarius doesn’t care. He is a happy-go-lucky character.

Put the two of them together under the same Supermoon and you’ll never guess what can happen. So try it… It can be fun.

(For more, see… http://www.astrology.com/super-moon-full-moon-in-aquarius-get-your-freak-on/2-d-d-565731)

By the way, this Supermoon falls on the 222nd day of the year. So what does that mean, numerologically?

Well, Angel Number 222 is a message of faith and trust from our Spirit guides. Know that all is being worked out for the highest good of all involved. Remember that nothing happens by chance and everything happens for a reason. Maintain a positive attitude and you will find that everything will have positive results and you will receive abundant blessings in Divine right timing.

Supermoon, Sphinx (Solar Lion) joined by Great Pyramid 

A friend from Arizona has just sent me this super shot taken on Aug 11, the full moon. Hard to beat such a constellation, especially during the Solar Lion Stargate. 

Supermoon and Solar Lion




Welcome to the this year’s peak of the Solar Lion Stargate!

What is the Solar Lion Stargate?

The 8:8 (Aug 8) Solar Lion Stargate is the cosmic event that has been venerated and celebrated by ancient Egyptians, creators of the Sphinx, and descendants of the Atlanteans.  Both of these two now extinct societies possessed extraordinary celestial knowledge and cosmic awareness.

This is an annual galactic event that occurs when our Sun enters the Leo constellation. The Solar Lion Stargate peaks on 8:8 (Aug 8), the double infinity energy day. During this week (Aug 4-11), the stargate will be fully open to allow the energy from the Source (Creator) at the Great Central Sun, our Sun and the stars Sirius, to pour into Planet Earth.

This transmission will be especially concentrated at the Great Pyramid of Giza and the Sphinx (Solar Lion). But there are other energy vortexes around the world through which these transmissions will also occur. The Rainbow Shower, the Earth’s Heart Chakra, is one of them.

What does the Solar Lion Stargate mean for us?

The Solar Lion Stargate is an opportunity for all beings on Planet Earth, sentient and inanimate, to renew themselves.

A number of important things happen in our galaxy around the Solar Lion’s Gate opening.

The clearest of all is the pulling of Sirius – the brightest star we can see – towards Earth. At peak alignment, which happens on August 8th, Sirius lines up directly with the pyramids in Giza. In Egypt, this is marked by abundance.

Why is that significant?

Well, Sirius A, the bigger and brighter of of the two Sirius star, has twice the mass of our Sun and is 25 times more luminous. Despite its twin Sirius B being much smaller – similar in size to Earth – it has almost the same mass as the Sun, making it an incredibly dense object.

Sirius A is estimated to have surface temperatures of around 10,000C (18,000F), almost twice as hot as the sun, while Sirius B has the surface temperatures of around 25,000C (45,000F), which is almost five times as hot as the sun.

See why we should take the Sirius energies seriously? [pun intended]

During this Solar Lion Stargate a wave of intense Light from the Galactic Center is being transmitted to the Earth. This “wave” contains the new Light Codes for the Evolution of the Earth for the next year/cycle, and so it is known as the Planetary New Year!

It is vitally important for all who aspire to ascend to open our hearts to receive these codes and to recharge our DNA in order to make another quantum shift toward ascension.

How do we do open ourselves to receive these codes?

I will share with you how I do it.  It’s up to you to use it or modify my process to suit your situation and circumstance.

First, it is important that you discern, using your own intuition, some sacred places in your own environment. That’s where you should go every day to mediate.Screen Shot 2014-08-04 at 11.43.58 AM

In my case, the Rainbow Shower, which is shaped as the Sphinx (right), is one of of the concentrators of these powerful celestial energies that are now entering Planet Earth (see Connecting Rainbow Shower to Crop Circles, Solar Lion Gateway, July 2013).

Three 5-minute meditations

Set aside about 15 minutes every day this week for a  special meditation. I break it up into 5-minute segments.  I go each of the three Triangle of Light Infinity Portals and focus my meditation on specific things.

At each Portal, I visualize myself as a rod, a conductor of light, transceiving  celestial energies through the Crown Chakra and to and from Mother Earth through the Root Chakra.

This is what I say Solar energy sunsetto open the sacred space before each 5-minute meditation (it’s not important that it be exactly 5 minutes):

“This is ALTZAR, the Rainbow Giver, from the Dogon Star (Sirius B). I am a child of the Universe. I am a ray of the original Sun. I am a link between Heaven and Earth. I am Wholeness. I am Love. And I love You.”

  • Screen Shot 2012-08-22 at 11.59.55 PMAt the Portal of Infinite Wisdom, I open my heart to receive optimal wisdom and higher knowledge codes from my Spirit guides. I also pray that the same energies be shared with all benevolent human beings on this planet. That’s so they could also use in the cause of Peace and Harmony among all.
  • Screen Shot 2012-08-23 at 12.08.37 AMAt the Portal of Infinite Compassion and Forgiveness, I repeat the opening of sacred space. Then I shift the focus to offering and receiving the Compassion and Forgiveness codes for all that I have done, and all that has been done to me.  And I ask the Spirit that the same energies be shared with all benevolent human beings on this planet, so they could be put to use in the cause of Peace and Harmony among all.
  • Screen Shot 2012-08-23 at 12.13.24 AMAt the Portal of Infinite Love, I send my Love to the Creator, to Mother Earth,  to all her celestial brethren, and to all sentient and inanimate creatures on this planet.  And I open my heart to receive Love from the Creator and all benevolent entities in our galaxy. And I ask the Spirit that the same energies be shared with all benevolent human beings on this planet, so they could be put to use in the cause of Peace and Harmony among all.

Finally, I go to the Anahata-Huaca-Ahu (AHA), the sacred place 1010335_10200718525780426_1014496386_nwhich is the geometric center of the Triangle of Light, and the Heart Chakra of this planet.   Standing on the rock in the center of the AHA, I then connect directly with the Creator and to my Spirit guides. I ask them to activate (LAUNCH) the codes that recharge my and other people’s DNAs with energies received and transmitted at the three Triangle of Light Portals.

By the way, LAUNCH stands for Love, Acceptance, Understanding, Compassion and Harmony (Humility, in my case).

And that’s it. That’s all it takes – about 20 minutes every day this week (and maybe a little longer on Aug 8, if you wish).  And you should be good to go for the next 12 months. And so will our planet.

What can I expect from this?

We are all on different paths to the same destination – Ascension.

So there is no hard and fast rule about how each of us should get there.  Or what will happen to us when we do.

What I realized this morning, for example, was that my August 1 LUMBERJACK CHALLENGE – REACHING THE “UNREACHABLE TREE” – was in part related to the opening of the Solar Lion Stargate.

Because this year’s Portal for me is all about surpassing all previous limitations.  

This is, for example, the message from Kyrona (a channeler) which arrived on my computer screen this morning. Up until today, I had never heard of Kyrona:

“It’s not surprising that every year this configuration gives to you the infinity portal escorting you past all previous limitations. It is a number of going beyond what you know to be your normal boundaries. It asks you to fly to the moon and stop by the Milky Way on your way back. It is pure spiritual atomic energy, a pure power source.

It is success, prosperity and big business with the added flavour of universal blessings. It is finally remembering about your divine inheritance promised to you by your Holy Creator.

It is turning your nose up at earthly limitations and walking forward and upward into a place of opulence and bounty. It is about connecting to and owning your divine purpose, then stepping more fully into the life you destined yourself to live!”

And now, check out this story which I posted yesterday, and see how it matches up with what Kyrona said above about the Solar Lion Gateway.

“Rappelling” up 60-foot ravine with 70-degree slope, chainsaw on my back, to reach the “unreachable tree” – three times!

Practice in Surrendering to the Divine and Receiving Grace

When a reporter asked the late Sir Edmund Hillary why he wanted to climb Mount Everest, the first man to ever reach the summit of the tallest peak in the world replied simply, “because it was there.”

“Because it was there”-line also crossed my mind yesterday (Aug 1). That’s when I attempted the most treacherous of my lumberjacking adventures.  Why? “Because it was there,” I realized during the climb.

BREAKTHROUGH – Spirit Guidance Carries Same Message

This morning (Aug 4), I drew the BREAKTHROUGH Mystic Medicine  card.  It was the first time EVER (!) that I received this particular Spirit guidance.  And it happened right after I had replied to two readers’ comments about my “Lumberjack Challenge” story.

Here’s that Spirit message:

“Break through your limitations by realizing you are the creator of your own fate. Break through the shackles of societal programming, the modern culture conditioning. Say “yes,” then buckle up for a surprise of who you really are.”

Good luck in your own Solar Lion Stargate quest!

Three Rainbows confirm Spirit received messages

I did my first meditation ceremony this evening, just before sunset. I lit a Frankincense  and Myrrh incense stick and took it with me, along some shamanic Holy Water.

After opening the sacred space at each of the Triangle of Light Portals with the use of incense and holy water, I put one hand on the ball of the Portal marker, and the other pointing the incense stick and holy water up toward the sky.  I then did the ceremony at each of the three Portals.

As I was walking from the Portal of Infinite Love to the Anahata-Huaca-Ahu, for the fourth and final step – to activate the codes I had just received – I noticed a partial rainbow had formed overhead.

Today was a sunny, hot and dry day around here. Yet suddenly a few clouds materialized out of thin air to create the mist and the rainbow.

I recognized instantly that this was the Spirit’s acknowledgement that they had received the prayers and messages. So I thanked them for it during the ceremony at the AHA.

And then another rainbow popped up above. Amazing!

I left the incense stick burning at the AHA fireplace before heading up the hill.

When I climbed up to our Rainbow Shower home, the third rainbow was greeting me as I emerged from the Orchard Rd.  It stretched over our home like a protective umbrella.

I felt my heart beating very fast with joy and in gratitude to the Spirit realm. What a bliss to receive their instant confirmation.

I rushed into the house to get my camera, but by the time I came back out, less than a minute later, the rainbow was gone. Another sign that they were a form of communication with the Spirit realm rather than a normal weather phenomenon.

I took a picture of the house anyway, and then superimposed this shot of a partial rainbow from another evening. Just to give you an idea how divine and beautiful it was.


I then turned my camera to the Sun which was just about ready to set. This is what the Solar Lion looked like on the first day of the opened Stargate. Perfection!

Guess who is coming for breakfast on 8:8?

This morning started with a bang. I just learned from Andrea, a Screen Shot 2012-08-23 at 12.14.33 AMmusician-friend and Steward of the Earth here on Maui whom you saw in a ceremony with me two years ago (right), that we will be having a noisy visitor on 8:8, the peak of the Solar Lion Stargate.  Apparently, Iselle is coming for breakfast.

Who is Iselle?

Iselle is a hurricane that currently packing 125 mph winds in Eastern Pacific.  By the time she gets here, however, she will have weakened to “only” 65 mph, according to the forecast.

I don’t normally follow weather forecasts. What’s the use when you live in a place like Rainbow Shower whether the weather can change every 10 minutes? But prompted by Andrea’s comment, I did it this morning.  Take a look…

Guess my chainsaw work is not yet done for the summer. (Just yesterday, I finished what I thought was the last part).

Well, “the best laid plans of mice and men…” 🙂

Iselle Plumeria precedes Iselle Hurricane

Looks like we may be headed for triple trouble this week in Hawaii. Two tropical storms and a hurricane are due to visit.

Genevieve won’t give us much trouble. She is not very powerful and is far to the west of us.

Iselle is a different story.  Currently, she is a Category 1 hurricane with 125 mph winds. But by the time she makes a landing here in Maui on Friday (8-8-2014), it is still expected to pack a solid punch (65 mph wind).

Iselle Plumeria now has a new home

This morning, I had an idea of how to squeeze a lemon (hurricane) and make a lemonade.

We have had a small Plumeria tree here at the Rainbow Shower that’s been languishing for the last five years.  I have moved it to three different locations.  It stayed alive but not much more.  Its last residence was in a large pot next to our shed which she shared with some nasty cane grass.

My idea was to transplant it to one of our new rock wells down in the gulch (see LIFE FOR A LIFE: PALM FOR A PALM, July 13).

“We’ll let Iselle water it when she comes to the Rainbow Shower later this week,” I told Elizabeth over breakfast today.

That’s what I meant by “when life gives you a lemon, squeeze it and make a lemonade.”

IMG_2057 IMG_2056

And then when I transplanted that Plumeria earlier this afternoon, I decided that we should name it Iselle – in memory of the first drink she got at her new home. 🙂 Elizabeth agreed.
