My posting of the aerial view of Dubrovnik on Jan 27, 2016 evidently elicited a lot of memories in people who had been there themselves. It also had the same effect on me.

Here are some photos of yours truly (ALTZAR) taken in that beautiful medieval city in the summer of 1963. I was then traveling – no, scratch that… bumming around – with four of my high school buddies. We had no money, no hotel reservations, virtually no luggage… just a lust for adventure. We were the Five Musketeers without muskets but loaded with spunk and ingenuity.

One way I made some money, for example, was by making bets with German tourists on daring deeds. Like doing the high cliff dives you see below. Or by swimming butterfly-style across the bay you see in the background of that shot. And so on…

Meanwhile, that little stubble you see above was my first and only effort of growing a beard. I never did it again because it used to freak some people out – platinum blonde hair and a black beard. They thought I had dyed one or the other. 🙂

There was another fascinating story that unfolded that summer in Dubrovnik which may be worth telling in the form of a short story. My working title for it is “GAY AND SEXY SUMMER.” Here it goes…


It was a long hot summer, the summer of 1963. Just like the popular 1960s TV series of the same title based on the novel The Hamlet by William Faulkner, the short story “Barn Burning”, and the 1958 film of the same name. Except that my summer of 1963 unfolded on the Adriatic coast of Yugoslavia rather than in the sizzling interior of Mississippi. And it was not based on anything else but the whim and caprice of five teenage boys.

Striking Out with Girls

We, the Five Musketeers without a musket, as we might have appeared to those who encountered us during our summertime Adriatic adventures, were out for a good time. We were hoping to achieve that especially with girls. But we were all greenhorns. And jocks. Which means awkward and clumsy. None of us knew how to seduce a girl.

It didn’t help much that we had no money and no accommodation and only a backpack each to our name. So we stumbled from one chance meeting to another up and down the Adriatic coast without making a score. But then our luck changed..

On an August afternoon, we boarded a ship in Makarska which was sailing for Dubrovnik, a beautiful medieval city about 100 miles southeast of Makarska. Our luck changed when we met a group of teenage German girls on board. They seemed similarly on a prowl to find some boys with whom to have a good time.

Since I spoke German fluently at the time, I had to do most of the talking in both languages. But after awhile, I got tired of translating back and forth, and let everybody fend for themselves.

By the time we docked in Dubrovnik, we had made a group date with the German girls. We were all to meet the next night at the fountain in the center of the city (like the one I am drinking from in the above picture).

Sleeping at the Bottom of Drained Pool

As I said, we had no planned accommodation. For most of that summer – being both long and hot – we slept under the open sky using our backpacks for pillows. That night, we actually ended up shacking up at the bottom of an empty pool. Just before dawn, however, we were roused by the sound of gushing water.

“What the fuck…” one Musketeer yelled, waking up the rest of us. “Somebody is filling the pool.”

We hightailed out of there in a hurry. We spent the day on a nearby beach, where I tried to make some money by making bets with German tourists on daring deeds. Like doing the high cliff dives. Or by swimming butterfly-style across the bay you see in the background of my cliff diving shot.

And then it was time for our evening date.

Our Group Date Gets an Unexpected Twist

We got there first. It was a balmy summer night with lots of people around. We sat down on the warm stones around the fountain to watch the world go around and wait for the German girls to show up.

As always, there was one among us for whom the glass is always half empty.

“Bet they won’t come,” one of Musketeers prophesied.

He was wrong. The girls did show up. But much later.

Before that, we were approached by two “older guys” from Belgrade. They were actually in their mid-20s, like the twosome in the picture below. But to us teenagers they looked like “older guys.”

When they introduced themselves, they told us they were the “primo ballerino dancers” at the Belgrade Ballet company. Being green and innocent, we thought nothing of it and continued to make small talk with them.

Then out of the blue, they invited us to go sailing with them the next day. Well, to us, the five starving and nearly penniless students, that was like being invited to a Buckingham Palace reception. Of course, we accepted and fixed the time to meet them at the harbor the next morning. They left.

When we later met with our German dates, we also invited the girls to come sailing with us. Like us, they jumped at the opportunity.

Sailing to Lokrum Island

When we got to the harbor the next morning, our two sailing hosts were already aboard their yacht. When they saw that our entourage included girls, I could see a frown of disappointment on their faces.

They were cool about it, though. They said nothing out loud. So with all of us aboard, we pushed off from the dock and headed out to the island of Lokrum, a short distance from Dubrovnik (see below).

After docking and tying up the boat in this small harbor, we all walked across the island to the other side that faces the ocean.  We made camp atop of one of the cliffs and spent the day laying in the sun and chatting. The two ballerinos were pleasant company and made no fuss about having to put up with a bunch of noisy girls they had not invited.

IMG_4982After baking in the sun for a while, most people wanted to go swimming.  The cool ocean water – crystal clear and deep azure blue – looked very inviting. Alas, the only way in was to jump or dive off the high cliffs.

How high?

I can’t be sure anymore. But my best guess would be about 30 ft or so (see the picture of the Lokrum cliffs with the kayaks above).

Whether to show off for the girls or because I was a daredevil back then, I decided not to just jump but to dive into the ocean from atop the cliff (like that guy in the far left picture diving off a Lokrum cliff). For comparison, also take a look at the people jumping off the 40-ft cliffs at the South Point of the Big Island (right shot).

I survived it obviously, or else you would not be reading these lines. But my swimsuit did not. It split in two upon impact with the ocean.

“Get me another swimsuit,” I yelled to my buddies up top. “Bloody cheap communist production,” I muttered under my breath.

Fortunately, the German girls did not speak Serbian. So they were clueless about what had happened. But the two Belgrade ballerinos perked up at the opportunity to see a naked butt even for a moment. They ran to the edge of the cliff to find me in moderate distress in my birthday suit. One of them quickly produced an extra swimsuit and threw it down to me. That saved the day and my naked butt.

Dubrovnik Brank Aug 1963Later, as we were sailing back to Dubrovnik, the two ballerinos tried to hit on me and my bearded pal (right). I don’t know if our beards had anything to do with it – we were the only ones wearing a beard – but in my case, they were complimenting me on my legs.

It was only then that the penny dropped and I realized they were gay. Duh!  See what I mean by greenhorns?

I also felt weird and uncomfortable receiving compliments on my legs. I felt like an exhibit in a meat market. That’s also when I first understood how women must feel like when they are complimented on their various body parts without any attraction to the person hitting on them.

In the end, nothing happened. We all disembarked at the port of Dubrovnik and went on our separate merry ways. But that day stayed forever etched in my memory as the day I grew up and broke out of my teenage greenhorn shell.

But that’s not yet the end of the story. There is also a story behind the story…


Fast-forwarding from Dubrovnik to our first week back in school. I was a senior.I had already shaved off my beard before the school started. My four other traveling buddies, the Adriatic Musketeers, were all juniors. So nobody in my class knew anything about what had happened during our summer vacation. They found out soon enough…

Our German teacher was an older lady, probably in her early 60s by then. Since I spoke perfect German, I was her star pupil. She would call on me to say or do something whenever she needed to impress someone, the principal or a visitor.

One such visitor who showed up during that first week of school was a young and sexy woman. She was introduced to us by our teacher as the “inspector.” Guess the visitor’s job was to rate the teacher.

The pretty brunette with Elizabeth Taylor-like blue eyes took a seat at the back of the room, and proceeded to observe the class. We, the boys, on the other hand, proceeded to observe her.  More like stare at her. And she felt it, too, and did not seem to mind 🙂

On that particular day, our teacher decided to be brave and ask each of us to get up and tell the class in German what we did during our summer vacation. After all, we were all seniors and thus should have been proficient enough in the foreign language we had been taking for 8 years.

After a couple of kids struggled with their vacation stories, liberally mixing German and Serbian like spaghetti and meatballs, the teacher turned to me with a big smile on her face.

“And what about you, Bob? Why don’t you tell us what you did during your summer vacation?”

I am sure that the teacher expected a flowery story in Hochdeutch (I was told back then by my native German friends that I spoke with a Hannover Hochdeutch accent – which is sort of like Queen’s or BBC English in English. It took nearly 50 years for me to find out why. But that’s a different story).

But what our German teacher got instead was a shock of her life that jolted her right out of her comfy chair.

I basically told my Dubrovnik GAY & SEXY SUMMER story exactly as I had now done it in English. The beautiful inspector in the back of the room was rolling with laughter at each saucy turn of phrase. So did my classmates who were proficient enough in German to follow the story. Not to be left out, the rest laughed, too, though with some delay, and without knowing why. Herd mentality…merkel_3183206b

The only person who did not find my story funny was our German teacher. She looked like Angela Merkel in that photo on the right. She was embarrassed with all this talk of sex and nudity. After all, it was still 1963 and the flower children had not blossomed as yet. The sexual revolution was yet to begin. Or had I just fired one of the opening shots in it with my Dubrovnik story? 🙂

“Oh Bob…” was all the stunned teacher could muster afterward. 🙂





 … to remind us of a famous anniversary

On 55th Anniversary of President Eisenhower’s Ominous Warning, Our National Anthem Comes to Me in Dreamtime, Followed by “TRUTH” Spirit Guidance

Words of Wisdom We Did Not Heed

Last night, our national anthem came to me in dreamtime. I don’t remember the dream. But even as I was waking up, the music was still playing.

I figured I had to record it even though I did not know why at first. I don’t think I have ever really played the “Star Spangled Banner.”  Maybe doodled a few notes here and then. But when I sat down to play it this morning on my Clavinova, a full instrumental orchestration came together in less than half an hour even before Elizabeth got the breakfast ready.ike-quote-1-18-611

And then, as we talked about it over breakfast, the veil was lifted and I understood what the Spirit message was. Unbeknownst to my conscious self at the time, today is the 55th anniversary of the famous President Eisenhower’s farewell address in which he warned the nation about the dangers of the “disastrous rise of misplaced power” of the “military-industrial complex.”

It is a quote I used for the first time in a speech to a group of pan-European business people in Mallorca, Spain in Jun 1984. I have used it many times since in my public speeches and articles;es, including in a recent Truth in Media peace (see below).

And then, just to be sure I got the message, the Spirit also dealt me the TRUTH guidance card this morning:

“Speaking your Truth is liberating. See with the eyes of your heart. The heart never lies. It will tell you what’s true and what’s false. Allow your heart to transform any untruths that may be keeping you from experiencing who you really are into pure joy.” (Mystic Meds + my own download)

 And now, with that as a preamble, here’s my first and the only recording of our national anthem, made this morning at the Rainbow Shower in Maui, combined with a video excerpt from the Eisenhower 1961 speech:

“STAR SPANGLED BANNER” COMES TO ME IN DREAMTIME  … to remind us of a famous anniversary


* * *




In his farewell address to the nation on this day 55 years ago, President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned the American people to keep a careful eye on what he calls the “military-industrial complex” that has developed in the post-World War II years.

ALTZAR: He was neither the first nor the only President to express such concerns. Abe, Ike, JFK, among others, warned us – the future generations of Americans.

We did not heed their words of wisdom. We shrugged and shrank from our duties as free people. We turned into couch potatoes and allowed the corporations to usurp our liberties and democratic processes, and turn this erstwhile Republic into a plutocracy.

Which is why and how today we have a CRIMINAL GOVERNMENT in Washington instead of the “government of the people, by the people, for the people.”

For more, read…




The bad news: If we burn all of the planet’s fossil fuels, we’ll melt all of the world’s land ice. The oceans will rise about 200 feet (6o m). Many of the world’s greatest cities will disappear.

The good news: You’ll be long gone so … party on? Not so fast…


Watching Al Gore’s documentary on global warming, “An Inconvenient Truth,” should have been enough to turn any sane and semi-good-doggieintelligent person off such flagrant hype. A British judge ruled in Oct 2007, for example, that Gore gored the scientific truth in his film (see “Goring the Truth,” Oct 2007).

gore-crybaby“Based on the judge’s ruling, the footage that ought to be excised adds up to about 25 minutes or so out of the 98-minute film. What’s left is largely Gore personal drama and cinematic fluff that has nothing to do with the science of climate change,” writes Milloy in “Junk Science: Hey Gore, We Want a Refund” (Fox News, Oct 19).

Par for the course. Whatduya expect when Bill and Hillary Clinton or their flunkies invoke the word “truth?” The Truth?  Really?

And considering that this Clinton flunky claimed in the early 1990s to have invented the internet (the “information superhighway,” a term attributed to Gore), perhaps his film should have been entered in the comedy category.

Instead, the New World Order crowd in Oslo and Hollywood gave Al Gore a Nobel Prize and a couple of Oscars. Yes, the same folks who also gave Obama a Nobel Peace Prize in 2009. Another comedy sketch worthy of SNL (Saturday Night Live).

Okay, so you can probably gather by now that this writer doesn’t care much for the New World Order flunkies, whether Democrats, like the Clintons, Gore or Obama, or Republicans, like Bush’s, Cheney or McCain.

But this Steward of the Earth does care about the Planet Earth. Deeply. Which is why he founded the Stewards of the Earth organization in 2012. Which now numbers nearly 4,000 stewards from over 150 countries in the world.

So is global warming a hoax or a truth?

The answer: Both.

It’s a hoax to the extent that the climate doomsayers claim we are facing clear and present danger. It is the truth that may haunt future inhabitants of this planet unless we start curbing carbon monoxide emissions around the globe.

Putting it succinctly, a death of oil and gas companies would signal rebirth of the rest of the planet.

“Homo sapiens sapiens, the species with the ironic name, is not known for long-term thinking,” writes Joe Romm in a Climate Progress September 2015 article.

Ironic, because “sapiens” means wise in Latin. And the way we have been plundering and destroying our planet is anything but (wise). It is not only a case of greed. It is an example of extreme selfishness.

We are robbing future generations of this planet of their future.

A new analysis in Science Advances, “Combustion of available fossil fuel resources sufficient to eliminate the Antarctic Ice Sheet,” finds just that if temperatures rise 11°C (20°F). The earth would lose all of the Antarctic ice sheet — which is where 90 percent of the world’s land-locked ice is, enough to raise sea level by itself more than 160 feet. When you add in the Greenland ice sheet — whose point of no return is probably closer to 3°C warming — plus all of the other land-based glaciers and thermal expansion, you get sea level rise of over 200 feet (see

So let me try to bring the truth about the global warming home with some concrete examples, courtesy of Google maps at What if the ocean levels were rise 200 ft? What would that mean to the world as we know it today?

Well, one thing it would mean is that future generations might be able to go scuba diving down the skyscrapers of New York, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Shanghai, Hong Kong, even Beijing, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth, not to mention London and northern Europe where a new sailing competition for Europe’s Cup might take place. Or where future generations could drive their amphibious automobiles over sunken cities, like Atlantis or the treasure-laden shipwrecks in the past.

Take a look….

North America


Mexico, Central and South America

China, Japan, Western Australia

Queensland, Eastern Australia

Northern Europe, U.K.

Italy, Middle East,  Black Sea


So there you have it, the hoax and the truth aspects of global warming. What’s to be done?

Well, nothing – if you’re a selfish SOB who cares about nothing and nobody except himself/herself survival in the current lifetime.


Put pressure on everybody and anybody you know in the government, media, your town, your neighborhood, your family – to reduce our dependance on fossil fuels, and promote the use of renewable energy (solar, wind, bio… etc.).

In other words, be a good Steward of the Earth.

Or to use a medical analogy and apply it to treating our Mother Earth the way a doctor is supposed to treat a patient:

“First do no harm”

(“First do no harm” (Latin: Primum non nocere) is not a part of the Hippocratic Oath, strictly speaking, although the oath does contain a similar sentence: “Also I will, according to my ability and judgment, prescribe a regimen for the health of the sick; but I will utterly reject harm and mischief”, in Latin “Victus quoque rationem ad aegrotantium salutem pro facultate, judicioque meo adhibebo, noxamvero et maleficium propulsabo”).

Which means, we must work to remove those who do harm to our planet – the oil and gas companies, the various other industries that ride on their coattails, and any other individual or organization that prospers from carbon emissions and destruction of our planet.

Pollution and carbon emissions is bigger than any one of us. It’s bigger than any regional or national interest. Because they are killing our Mother.

UPDATE January 14, 2016


One would not typically associate New York with being “green,” either environmentally or literally. Yet when it comes to reducing carbon emissions during commute to work, New York City tops all American cities.


A report from the League of American Bicyclists analysed the rate of non-driving in large U.S. cities (population 300,000+), finding that 68 percent of New Yorkers travel by either bike, walking or transit. People living in Washington D.C., and Boston have also started turning their backs on the automobile, with bike/walk/transit accounting for 53.1 and 50.7 percent of travel respectively. In Portland, cycling has gained serious tracking, accounting for 7.2 percent of the city’s travel. However, according to the report, only 24.4 percent of trips in the city are conducted by bike, walking or transit.

Why New York? Is it that the citizens of the Big Apple are really the nation’s best Stewards of the Earth?


Hardly. New York City is also the costliest place to park in USA (USA TODAY, July 2011). And Boston is second, just as in the “green” rankings.

That’s no accident. What’s making these cities appear “green” is the financial pain of driving a car to work.

Midtown and downtown Manhattan, for example, are the two most expensive places in the USA to park, with median monthly rates at $541 and $533, respectively, says Colliers International’s annual survey of parking rates in North America. In third place is Boston at $438, 19% less per month than midtown Manhattan and well above the national average of $155.22.

There’s no shortage of cities with eye-popping downtown parking rates. Rounding out the top 10 most expensive central business districts for monthly parking rates are San Francisco at $375; Philadelphia at$304; Seattle at $294; Chicago at $289; Washington at $260; Honolulu at$217; and Los Angeles at $210.

If you’re looking for cheap cities, go no farther than Reno, which has a monthly rate of $45; Phoenix at $50, and Bakersfield, Calif., at $53.

Unfortunately, across the United States, the automobile is still king of the commute. A 2013 survey revealed that 76.4 percent of Americans travel to work by car and alone, with only 5.2 percent using public transport. Some 2.8 percent walk and a mere 0.6 percent commute by bike.

So there is much work to be done on reducing carbon emissions. The big cities could lead the way by jacking up the parking rates several fold, perhaps to the levels of New York or Boston. And then watch the commuter traffic jams start to fall off and the sun shine more brightly in their cities.


“If you do not design your life, one will be appointed to you.”

Jan 7, 2016

I finished this special day with a sunset Fire Ceremony of Gratitude at the shaman’s altar, the open fireplace inside the sacred place of the Rainbow Shower, the Anahata-Huaca-Ahu. Which I now know is also my personal Mandala. Rainbow Shower Aerial 12

What was very interesting is the blue smoke that was still coming out of the fire long after the sun had set.

According to Mayan cosmology, the blue smoke comes out of the Sacred Fire. It implies the presence of Spirit. Which, of course, is the point of shamanic fire ceremonies. We send our prayers and messages to the Spirit realm through the fire.


Indeed, during the fire ceremony I communicated to the Spirit a number of things I wanted to see happen in my life. In doing so, I was guided by something that happened earlier in the day, heeding a message I got from the Spider sacred animal.


Earlier in the day, as I was doing my morning rounds of the Rainbow Shower, bright sunlight drew my attention to a couple of spider webs I would not have noticed before. They were hanging high up – 8-10 feet off the ground – in a wide open area of the Rainbow Shower ( known as the Banyan Portal.

Judging by their size, they must have been there a long time. I must walked under them many times. But it was only today, Orthodox Christmas Day, that the sun illuminated them brightly enough for me to take notice. And I was fascinated by what I saw.

(If you look at the PERFECTION 2 photo, which I left in original camera high quality format, you will be able see this work of art and engineering in full size and detail)


So what is the message the Spider sacred animal is trying to give us today

It turns out it was the same as that I received from a famous Inca shaman, Don Sebastian, a long time ago when we were perched on a hillside above the Temple of the Visionary in Pisaq, Peru (see

7_02_08 Pisaq (59)“You encounter life through envisioning,” he continued. “My journey is to live that vision through encounters (which he first envisions, before they happen!). The condor, the hummingbird (the spider)… are embodiments of vision. We can incorporate them into our vision just like the sun and the moon and other celestial objects.”

“Vision is our connection to all objects in nature,” he said. “The light that’s shining onto us (from the universe) already carries a vision. We can shine it right back out.”

7_02_08 Pisaq (22)

Some months later, another Inca-trained shaman expressed the same idea a little more succinctly:

“If you do not design your life, one will be appointed to you.”

Spider Pearls of Wisdom

And that’s what the Spider was telling me today, too:

“Just as the Spider weaves a web, so too must we weave our own lives. The Spider symbol meaning here serves as a reminder that our choices construct our lives. When the Spider appears to us, it is a message to be mindful of the choices we are making – and ask ourselves:

Questions The Spider Asks of Us:

  • How are my choices affecting my life?
  • How can my choices improve my life?
  • How are my choices affecting others in my life?

Not only do Spiders and their webs draw attention to our life choices, they also give us an overview of how we can manipulate our thinking in order to construct the life we wish to live.

Spiders do this by calling our awareness to the amazing construction of their webs. Fully functional, practical, and ingenious in design – Spider webs serve as homes, food storage, egg incubators – seemingly limitless in their functionality.

When we consider this ingenious diversity, we can also consider the web-like construct of our own lives. How are we designing the most effective life?”

Summary of Jan 2, 2016 Channeling Session

Rainbow Shower Aerial 12

This is a Summary of a fascinating channeling session I had on Jan 2, 2016 with an Egyptian Spirit who ascended some 3,500 years ago.

“You are what is called Bodhisattwa. It means if you were to incarnate, you chose to do so.” (Spirit)

â—Ź Bodhisattva ­– ­ a human being committed to the attainment of enlightenment for the sake of others. Therefore, it will be up to me after I pass back to the Spirit to decide whether or not I come back to incarnate again.

â—Ź King James VI and I (1566-­1625) ­ – who sponsored Shakespeare and inspired several plays in which Shakespeare used ancient Celtic rites and characters he had learned about from King James (Midsummer Night’s Dream, Winter’s Tale and MacBeth).

â—Ź ATLANTIS Legacy: Similar Celestial Alignments of Boyne Valley Monuments (Newgrange, Knowth, Dowth) and Giza Pyramids

● Composer on Tsar Peter the Great Court (1672­-1725) ­

â—Ź Personal Mandala Already Constructed in 3D ­ – Another fascinating revelation was that I had already constructed my personal Mandala in 3D at the Rainbow Shower in Maui between 2009 and 2011 without realizing that that’s what it was ­ Flower of Life.

In my incarnations during the last 500 years I continued to work subconsciously as an ancient shaman – by sponsoring other artists to create works with Divine connections, or sometimes even doing it myself. And now, I have come a full circle – becoming a shaman again.

“Stop This World”


Stop this world, let me off
There’s just too many pigs in the same trough
There’s too many buzzards sitting on the fence
Stop this world, it’s not making sense

Stop this show, hold the phone
Better days this girl has known
Better days so long ago
Hold the phone, won’t you stop the show

Well, it seems my little playhouse has fallen down
I think my little ship has run aground
I feel like I’m in the wrong place
My state of mind is a disgrace

Won’t you stop this game, deal me out I know too well what it’s all about
I know too well that it had to be
Stop this game well it’s ruining me

Well I got too smart for my own good
I just don’t do the things I know I should
There’s bound to be some better way
I just got one thing more to say

And that is
Stop this game, deal me out I know too well what it’s all about
I know too well that it had to be
Stop this game well it’s wrecking me


Spinning Earth




Move over Guy Lombardo and your Auld Lang Syne. There is something special about Floyd Cramer and usherin the New Year.

Two years ago, the last song of 2013 is also the first piano tune I have ever recorded. I had been playing this Floyd Cramer piece for 50 years now (see FLOYD CRAMER JAZZ MUSIC FROM BOB’S PIANO BAR: LAST SONG OF 2013, Dec 31, 2013).

Last night, another Floyd Cramer piece came to me in dreamtime.  With full orchestration!  This tune, however, is one I have never played before. It was his first big hit which Cramer recorded 55 years ago (in 1960): “Last Date.”

After Elizabeth woke up, I started playing it, first on my Steinway, then on my Clavinova. Within half an hour I had it already recorded – piano, symphony strings + rhythm section with 6-8 beat. Like Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 21 and Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata.
No sheet music, of course. So this version is not necessarily the same as that Floyd Cramer had written down, especially as I am also playing it in Variation 2 on a guitar, with piano as background.

So here you go, my first recording of 2016.. Floyd Cramer is back again:

Happy New Year 2016!


Delivering Celestial Blessings and Message: 2016 Will Be a Yang Year!

Amazing Celestial Synchronicity: Two Photos of Two Rainbows Taken 11 Seconds Apart on Two Consecutive Days!

Rainbow Shower, Maui, Dec 31, 2015, 7:55:30 AM – It rained most of the day yesterday. It had been raining overnight, too, sometimes quite hard,

Yet when I stepped out to the lanai at about 7:55 this morning, a small but bright double rainbow that looked like a painting was smiling at me in the western sky. It felt as if the celestial realm were saying “Happy New Year” with it.

So let me pass on their message: Happy New Year to all of you, too!


Rainbow Shower, Maui, Jan 1, 2016, 7:55:19 AM – The same thing happened again this morning. When I walked out to the lanai, another partial rainbow appeared just for a short while in a mostly clear sky. Only this one was rising from the left.


So the first rainbow of 2016 and the last rainbow of 2015 complemented each other like bookends.

And because the two pictures were taken at exactly the same time on two consecutive days, it is possible to blend them together seamlessly into this panorama shot, making it appear as if it is a single rainbow.

Celestial magic!

Rainbow Magic 2016-2015

Guess that’s the celestial version of Yin and Yang – a Rainbow-set and a Rainbow-rise – sort of like the sun and the moon daily cycles.

Amazing Synchronicity: Double Infinity

Want to the know the most incredible part of this synchronicity? When I looked at the time stamp in my camera, I saw that I took the two pictures at EXACTLY the same time – 7:55 AM.

Okay. If one really wanted to split hairs, the two photos of the two Yin-Yang rainbows were taken 11 seconds apart, yet on two different days!

Of course, I was none the wiser. I did not plan any of it. I only became aware of it when I looked at the camera data.

Which, of course, also counts as a credit to the Spirit realm. It was my Spirit guides and teachers that made me aware of this synchronicity and gave me the urge to look for camera facts to confirm it.

And my friends. Like Nilima Bhat from India, who observed that 7:55 numerologically means Number 8. Which is infinity.

“We ended 2015 by returning to the infinite, and started 2016 sourcing from there,” she said.”Completed a cycle. Beginning now in Full spectrum consciousness.”

To which I added, “double infinity.” Two days in a row… 🙂

2015 Was a Yin Year, 2016 Will Be a Yang Year

So what’s the Spirit message with these two rainbows?

Well, 2015 was a Yin (feminine) year. With a preponderance of  Water energy – El Niño and the ensuing floods all over the world, including at the Rainbow Shower – who can argue with that, right?

By contrast, my Spirit guides are telling us that 2016 WILL BE A YANG (masculine) YEAR.

And not just with these two rainbow bookends. Check out the story about the Year of the Moose (also Yang – masculine energy – I published yesterday, on the last day of 2015).

The Yang aspect of 2016 also implies there will be more volcanic and astral activity this year.

So fasten your seatbelt and hang on for an exciting ride. And may you all have a blessed 2016!

Another Amazing Synchronicity

Will this be the Year of the Moose? 

You see, the Moose animal totem represents gentle, loving, compassionate wisdom. Also communicating the wisdom and joy of life is symbolic of Moose…the wise elder.

Moose does not suffer fools easily. Think of Moose as a walking, living, breathing Lie Detector. He can sniff out a liar from far away. So Moose also stands for Integrity and Truth.

So watch out, Hillary… 2016 may be the year of your undoing.

As if confirming that the 2016 will be the Year of of the Moose (i.e., of Yang, the masculine energy), when Elizabeth and I started watching a movie last night, guess what the first scene showed?  A Moose!

No kidding… I was floored when I saw it.

The symbol of Moose represents self-esteem and masculine energy. Moose is a prideful creature but not the pride of ego, rather the balanced pride of being able to recognize your good traits and accomplishments and being joyful of those qualities about yourself while having pride in your masculinity and sharing your wisdom with others. 
This is not just a message for males though; we all have both masculine and feminine qualities in us, so this message is for you! 
Moose is of the Deer family and lives in the far North which represents gentle, loving, compassionate wisdom. Also communicating the wisdom and joy of life is symbolic of Moose…the wise elder. 
If you are receiving symbols of Moose in your life right now then you are being asked to find your joy and share your knowledge with others along with your wisdom and compassion.
