The 8-8 of 2019

I will be spending the wonderful Lions Gate portal day, and the weekend that follows – out camping and truly being in nature. Super-excited to be playing, enjoying, un-plugging, grounding-in, sleeping on… Gaia for this particular weekend. Icing on the cake: I’m with my hubby and our amazing kiddos! ❤

I’ll be staring up at the night skies and enjoying all the beautiful stars/starlight! I will be allowing and directing-in all them energies, frequencies, codes and activations for the next level fun!

I hope everyone has the opportunity to spend their gate-way time out in nature too; in some form or another. Happy Sirian/Sirius day, happy Lions Gateway.

Love and blessings!


Not much star gazing while camping – we had a rainy weekend. BUT the thunder and lightening storm (that came through Friday night) was really cool (even though it soaked us!). Sleeping/laying on the ground while lightening struck near by was… actually kind-of cool. I could feel these (shock) waves run through my body. The energy was, what I can only describe as, cleansing. I felt like I was having ‘stuff’ zapped right out and off of me. That – hard to describe – crack and snap that you can feel in your body when the ground is vibrating… I was feeling that.

I don’t recommend being out in any lightening storm. But we were there, camping in it. If it got too close for comfort – we were heading for our truck. But we stayed safe. I doubled-up ‘security’ by asking AA Michael to watch over us.

I felt and utilized this shock-therapy 🙂 to remove anything that no longer serves, anything that isn’t mine, what’s not for my greatest and highest good… I worked with it. The next morning – I felt lighter! I felt pretty good. That’s saying a lot when the sleeping wasn’t very good to begin with!

Yup, I went into this camp trip with some ideas of what I thought I wanted to do (or what was going to happen)! The Universe had a different plan… I went with it and had an adaptation of intention(s). Unique, and will probably never be duplicated again! It was rare, it was interesting, it was cleansing, and it was an experience! ❤ 🙂

So, I’ve had a hankerin’ for some classic movies lately. Does classic mean the 60’s anymore? Or does it mean anything older than 10 years? I’m voting for the 10 year mark. Heck, there’s stuff from 5 years ago – already considered ‘classic’. I guess, as time is speeding up – the gap that creates classics would get smaller too. Instant classic also comes to mind. Regardless of how I am trying to categorize it – the movie I watched was definitely an oldie-but-goodie. What’s interesting about it this time – is that I am really seeing the parallels in it with ‘real life’. I don’t think I really looked at it in this way before. It was always just… entertainment.

It’s ‘The Truman Show’ (starring Jim Carrey) it came out back in 1998. I have seen it a few times over the years. But the difference between the 7 or 8 years ago (when I’m thinking I last saw it) to watching it last week… huge! It is still entertainment… but oh how oddly realistic it kind-of is.

If you haven’t seen this cute film, maybe give it a chance.

As I was watching this with new perspective I kept noticing how ‘that’s so us’! Us, the human race. We are all in the dome of make believe. Lots of similarities – from living a programmed 3D life to our little awakening moments that lead us to a better ‘enlightenment’. Being ‘watched’, guided, and having things orchestrated via the Universe to create synchronicities. Sure, this all varies from person to person but the gist of it is still the same. We are asleep – until we wake up! I just thought it was kind-of funny how I didn’t notice that correlation before. But then, I was in waking-mode when I saw it last. Sometimes you need to be past something before being fully aware of it. When you are in it – you might not know you are in it.

Kind of like… now. The wave of awakening that is happening now has many people not even knowing they are awakening. They just know something is changing, different, or they are beginning to click with new thoughts/how they think. This works in conjunction with how they feel, getting in touch with emotions, or just general deeper pondering that they have probably been avoiding (for years or maybe all their life). There are a lot of ‘Truman’s’ awakening. And yes this is good n’ great, but some can wake up swinging arms and punching air! There can be confusion, panic, freak-outs, and just general misunderstanding.

As an energy/lightworker I feel that it really is part of our job to be the calming voice, maybe ‘voice of reason’, from the perspective of already being on the other side of this (the things we all go through, been through, experienced and learned from in our own processes). We are here to help as this wave comes rushing in and through. The person(s) receiving the help might not realize it in that moment but it will click somewhere down the line for them. It’s not our job to pull and yank anyone by the hand and force them to process quickly. We just need to be the light, patience, love, and understanding.

We are all on our own journey’s here. We have things we want to do/be individually… but also as a collective group (as we build into our unity-consciousness). Being patient with someone while they work-through their own crap is beneficial to the parties involved as well as the group (all of us) as a whole.

Remember to be understanding with the Truman’s in your life. They might be feeling confusion, a ‘stuck-ness’, lonely, bored, sad, agitated, lost, struggling, bouts of anger, maybe even some depression. Things are coming up for them, being shown to them, repeating for them. We are all having this – at some level. Mine… have gotten a little easier and, I will say, more obvious! It might be the next day when it becomes obvious… but to me – that’s fast! There is something to be said for ‘sleeping on it’. I love working on things in my dream-time. It has taken a few years – but I can recognize a block/obstacle way faster than I did even just a year ago. It comes with awareness, intuition, observation, tuning-in, allowing Source to assist, being conscious, loving yourself, having a more positive mind-set, and knowing that this 3D matrix is for learning.

In school, did we all fester on an algebra problem we just couldn’t grasp? Did we embed it into our physical body or sub-conscious somewhere and wait for it to bubble up later in life? No. We learned how to approach it, adjusted the ‘math’ for our capabilities, solved the equation and moved on. It was something we took care of right away so we could be done with it. We aren’t packing around this algebra problem with us for the rest of our lives, so it can pop-up at the worst possible moment, making us work through it again. OR… maybe you are. Some people love math and do pack around equations. I, however, do not. The moral of this math analogy is… We can do this ‘problem solving’ with earthly issues that tend to fester for us. Things that we DID pack away (usually from our childhood) – we can bring them up, acknowledge what it was here to teach, approach it in an observational-mode, and then ‘get the lesson’. Thank it, love it, forgive it – if need be – and let it go. Solve your math problem… Be done with it!

Yes, it’s that: wanting to bring it up part.

A lot of people don’t want to bring it up. Sorry… but you will have to. You cannot grow and evolve without taking a look. A good, close, look. These are your lessons. If you aren’t done with them – they keep coming at you. Over and over and over…. Man, I am exhausted just thinking about it! How do people live like this? How was I living like this? Oh, that’s right… I was snoooooozing! Being sleepy or, for some, completely asleep keeps everything buried. If it comes up… give it a quick WTF?, then ignore it, and re-bury it! Hurry… before anyone notices! Bury it deeper this time!

This process will no longer work.

Maybe these are zombie-issues. They just keep creeping up from their depths, attack you for a while until you kill it and then re-bury it! Oh my… sometimes I wonder how I can go from a Truman-like movie thought process to a Zombie-like movie… hmmm. It’s all related, right?

And on that note…

It’s Lion gateway time! The 8-8 is right around the corner. What an awesome time to bring up some trauma you have had packed away. Yes, bring it up and take a look. Ask it questions, wait for answers. Communicate with it. It wants to show you, teach you, and help you in your growth. You don’t have to solve it in one day. If it was a doozie, approach it in baby steps. The fact that you are ready to learn is already: step one.

Be patient with yourself, but also be diligent. You have to keep working at it/on it until you have truly cleared it. If it comes back around, when you thought you were done, then – you aren’t done. Keep taking a look. The more of an observer you can be – the better. It can be difficult to see things when you are too emotionally there. With time, practice, and the true love you have for yourself – to work on yourself, you will start seeing things more clearly. With true clarity comes the cleansing.

Sounds funny-weird… but I would think that when the true wave of awakening is in full swing… there is going to be so much crying and cleansing going on – there will be no time for drama! Think about it.

8:8 and 11:11

I have only recently, in about the last 3-4 years (this is my 4th year of consciously enjoying this portal day), been truly aware of the Lion’s Gate (Lion’s Gateway) on 8-8.
I am not even going to pretend I’ve always known about this portal/gate way. Because I haven’t.

However, I have always felt that 8-8 had some sort of significance. Didn’t know what it was or why I ‘felt’ energetic high’s on (and around) this time. I didn’t really put the puzzle pieces together until a few years ago; when I happen to stumble upon something that would lead me to the next thing… information regarding 8-8: the Lion’s Gate. In fact, it was the ‘rare’ 8-8-8 (in 2015: the year of ‘8’) that I would find this; it ‘clicked’/resonated. I took notice, and I was like: ‘Oh, this is so Cool’!

Since there are no coincidences; I was meant to discover this on a deeper level and have it become a part of my new life. I remember really feeling the energies of that Lion’s Gate day (in 2015) – which prompted me to go investigate. Hence, the trail of crumbs I followed to discover and learn about this yearly activation. When you ‘choose’ at a soul level, you will feel/recognize the ‘prompts’ to help lead you where you/your soul wants to go. Apparently this one was long overdue!

So, long story longer… there was a good reason why I (always) ‘felt’ this day.

The quick-compiled description of the Lion’s Gateway is:
The Lions Gate is a time of increased Universal/cosmic energy flowing between the physical and spiritual/the Divine; it occurs in the astrological (zodiac) sign of Leo. It is an alignment with the Earth, the star Sirius, and the Galactic Center; thus becoming a portal/gateway. When this alignment happens, there is an intense surge of light which awakens DNA and transmits high vibrational frequencies and codes/key codes/star codes of and for awakening.

There is so much more information about this special day but that would have me writing way more than I intended. With each passing year, though, it seems there are more articles, more information, and people/light-workers talking openly about the Lion’s Gate. So awesome!

*A side note: A great, reliable, place to look for cosmic information is here:

I’m not really wanting to get into the how and why’s of it all. There is enough info out there (elsewhere) that is easy to look up. I just want to journal what this is for me.

I am understanding that this one is packed with a punch and will flow right on into the New Moon Solar Eclipse just 3 days later. It’s a nice ending (it’s never ending… but you know what I mean) to all this fun eclipse action we have been having. It’s all here to speed up our ascension. A nice kick-in-the-butt, if you will. Soooo many of us will feel this, probably for days!

Leo the lion and your inner child

On the 8th we will receive new Light Codes for our empowerment, strength, freedom, and abundance (to name a few). Then just days later, on the 11th, is the New Moon Solar Eclipse (11:11). This is a great time to, once again, release (more) of what’s no longer serving you. To also really open your heart, feel the joy, express yourself, find (or re-ignite) your passion(s). Let your inner-child out; yes… come out and play!

There are probably some things that you have been putting on the back-burner; maybe it’s an art class, or dance class. Maybe some swimming, surfing, rock climbing or riding a bike through some cool mountain trails. Maybe it’s something that is not as schedule-intruding like: planting some herbs (get your garden-on!); deep-cleaning that bathroom that seems to have gotten away from you lately. Get out, and dust-off, that oh-so amazing recipe from grandma. Then conjure up the confidence to make it (and hopefully eat it too; with friends or family maybe?). Bring out that inner-chef! Whatever it is: NOW is the time to take yourself up on your ‘offer’… and do it! A ‘back-burner’ thought/idea/activity/plan can come to the front! Even those baby-steps count. Just signing up for a class; committing to it – that alone can be a huge step for some.

Remember that each door you open and go through will lead you to your next door (of growth and opportunity). This is also the time to be standing strong (Leo/lion = courage!) and take authority of yourself and your life. Be the truly unique person that you are; be the beautiful light that you are, and come from the place of love. It’s all good… and it will be: all good! Trust your intuition, your guides, and the Universe. This is a time of new beginnings! Y-e-s!  🙂

I, myself, have been super tired (and wired) lately. I know why though… and it’s a good kind of tired. All this energy; all these upgrades, downloads, frequencies, high vibrations! Whew! I can’t seem to get enough meditation time or sleep. I just want to be in meditation (all-the-time!). When I am done with a session, I am already thinking about, and getting excited for, my next session. There are times when I think that it’s kind-of disruptive to my day… and then I quickly realize: I don’t care! What I care about is taking care of my physical (and, yes, spiritual) body while all this beautiful Universal-Pure Source activity is going on! The physical upgrades, alone, can be quite a handful! I have been feeling, sensing, noticing, and witnessing some different changes going on with my body (this year alone has been a doozy).

Just last week – I physically saw my heart beating out of my chest! It was almost cartoonish and a little surreal (but very real). My heart chakra is/has been opening up and re-adjusting itself for a while now (doing lots of work there). When I do have those occasional moments of ‘heart palpitations’ I know it’s an ‘ascension symptom’. This one, I will say, was one of my biggest heart palp moments I have ever had. It didn’t scare me at all. I actually stopped what I was doing to watch this happen right before my eyes! Even though it lasted, probably, 10 or 12 seconds; I was feeling joy and gratitude for the evolution my heart/chakra is receiving and opening up to. I would later find out that we were all receiving heart-opening codes and energies around that time. That makes sense! Thank you Universe! I accept! 🙂

Discovering the possible cause/reasons why (what is energetically happening on and for the planet) help validate. I have a knowing and I trust; but as a human… I also like validation and some confirmation along the way. So, connecting-the-dots of the planetary upgrades with a physical symptom… can ease my mind a bit and keep me grounded! It does help keep you from going a little coo-coo. 🙂

So, along with meditation and sleep, I am eating what I intuitively need to eat. Taking supplements to fill any gaps and drinking plenty of water. Right now I am boosting my vitamin C intake. Not only is this an awesome power vitamin to help if you are breathing a lot of smoke-filled wildfire air (like we currently are); it’s going to help you ward off any ascension flu-like symptoms you may encounter.

During the Lion’s Gate I will be open to receive (as always) and just soak it in. As for the 11th, I will be deep into my sleep state when the eclipse happens (@2:58 am pacific time), hopefully having some awesome vivid dreams! 🙂

Enjoy all this wonderful energy coming in everyone! Take good care of yourself, nurture yourself. When you take good care of yourself… well, I could write something ‘poetic’ here. Instead, just a statement: take care of yourself! It is your vessel right now. You want to be in an optimal-functioning vessel! Right?!
Peace and Love!

…and maybe a nap…???
