OPEN HEARTS OF ISRAEL AHAVA




Grandmother Drum closed her 2009 Mayim Hayim (LIVE WATER) Israel Tour at the Desert Ashram in the south of Israel on June 25-27, 2009 the very location of the very first ceremony at the beginning of April. We all gathered at the Festival of the Heart Song and then completed the third Portal Ceremony in the primordial desert in Timna, Israel. Each time we have done the water ceremonies and songs, unexpected rain has come to parts of Israel, a very rare occurrence indeed this time of year. During our Portal Ceremonies in June at the Sea of Galilee, a river that had been dry for many years started running again and in another area further north an aquifer was discovered. We are happy to create this collective prayer for the LIVING WATERS and to be a part of the everyday miracles they create AHO!.

Grandmother Drum held the opening ceremonies to the Festival of the Heart Song and even in the rising desert heat of nearly 40C, our family rocked, sang and danced in Grandmothers Living beat of Oneness. We were able to host the third Gate of Grace Meditation, the one we received earlier in the Tour in Clil, Israel.

Later in the weekend, Grandmother Drum received the honored invitation to play with the Friday evening Shabbats Ceremony with many, many talented musicians and an audience devoted to the sacred music of Shabbats.  Since my first visit to Israel last year, I have been in love with the devotional music of Shabbats and it was certainly the closing exclamation point of the tour for me to be able to light the Shabbats candles (which honors the descending presence of the sacred Feminine Shehkinah at sundown Friday) and play the soothing pulse of Grandmother Drum with the beautiful Hebrew Chants I had learned during the tour.

Then at 4am we headed on to Timna to do a sunrise Portal Ceremony to complete the assignments of the Grandmothers and Grandfathers and to activate this sacred vortex.  Timna is known for UFO sigtings. The landscape surely was straight out of Close Encounters of the Third Kind and that is exactly what we experienced! We were ushed in by the Hathor billboard statues at Timna Park and the rest, well, you had to be there!

We had an amazing day of personal and planetary healings and many visitations at the Portal and in our dreams in the days after. Wait to you see the videos!

NEW LIVE WATER CD!

We extended our LIVE WATER Israel Tour to complete over 22 tracks of water chants from around the world for our new LIVE WATER CD!

This was recorded in THE MOST RESONATE water cistern under the Holy City of Jerusalem very close to the Holy of Holies! The production should be finished by Sept 1, 2009.

Jerusalem Hug and LIVE H20 Weekend!





The Heartbeat of Love Drum Wave with Grandmother Drum and crystal bowls set the global 528  pulse at 4pm Israel time under the hot sun at the Jaffa Gate of the Old City of Jerusalem joined by over 30 venues worldwide. I welcomed thousands around the world through Livestream TV. Grandmother Drum was encircled by hundreds holding hands including Israelis, Egyptians, Palestinians, Americans, Canadians, Japanese, Russians, Africans and countless family from all over Europe ( to name a few!). All in all we had between 500 people who joined in the Jerusalem events. In our " Hug Around Jerusalem" ( http://www.loversofjerusalem.org/ ) people made a huge chain holding hands for unity and peace of all nations, religions and cultures from the Jaffa gate all the way to the Damacus Gate of the Old City. Later that evening, I saw several Israeli women crying with overwhelming joy as they watched Palestinians and Israeli youth join together to drum and dance and celebrate ( you have to understand how monumental this is!). The Global Prayer for the Living Waters was said by all in English, Hebrew and Arabic.
The response all night long was that participants felt so much love, gratitude and warmth from each other and all facilitators. Everyone sang and played Grandmother Drum singing Hebrew, Arabic, African and  Native American chants until midnight!  Our team all gave huge amounts of  time and dedication to make it a huge success. ( Special thanks to Shai, Amit, Dvora, Rob, Eliana, Helen,  and many more more.)
We are so over the top grateful and in love with one another!!! This event of coming together in The Jerusalem Hug as lovers of the Holy City with the Heartbeat of Grandmother Drum to activate the Living Waters of one of THE MOST POWERFUL PORTALS in the WORLD ( The HOLY OF HOLIES FOUNDATION STONE) was beyond beyond!  

We even had coverage from the Associated Press and local Israeli TV and newspapers. And to top it off we had wonderful hugs and support from the Police and Municipality! 
WE ALL DID THIS WITH ONE THING.............. LOVE AND GRATITUDE. (Its definitely contagious!)

Nine Pointed Star Over Galilee



On June 5-6, 2009 we held a special Nine Pointed Star Portal Ceremony at the shores of the Sea of Galilee with 25 of our Israeli family. Grandmother Drum was in rare form and our portal was held through a series of activations with Grandmother Drum over the two amazing days. After each wave, our hearts were washed clean.

 We had found the correct location from messages we received from the Grandmother and Grandfathers. I even found my first eagle feather in Israel there, a very, very rare find indeed. It was a Golden Eagle feather, to symbolize the Golden Cord into the Nine Pointed Star!

As we continued to work with the tour’s theme of LIVE WATER, we were all laughing and joking, as the tissue box became the main talking stick of the weekend. With the help of Grandmother Drum and the waters of the Galilee our hearts were pouring open. We were praying to bring more waters into the Sea of Galilee and to bring the rains to green the desert. The Grandmothers told us when the hearts of the Israeli’s open it will green the desert and raise the waters of Mercy and Grace. Well the flood in our hearts and eyes had started! 

As our ceremonies began we blessed each other with the waters from the Micvie in Jerusalem that I was given just a few weeks prior. We washed and blest each other in the three Hara’s of the navel, the heart and the third eye. Then we laid under Grandmother Drum for a journey through the 22 chakras of the Light Body to our Divine Godhood. We opened to our Higher Purpose that we came to earth to ground it through these ceremonies into the portal, the Earth Star under our feet.

In the evening, after the heat of the day, we began our sacred Nine Pointed Star Portal.

 In this medicine dance, people danced back and forth to Grandmother Drum and reconnected themselves to the core of the earth through the sacred portal rock on the north shore of the Sea of Galilee. The north shore of the Galilee is known Biblically as where many of the miracles of Jesus occurred including the miracle of the loaves and fishes,The Sermon on the Mount, the Mt of Beatitudes (blessed are the peacemakers etc) and where Christ walked on the water.  The actual portal vortex is located underneath a rock well known in the Bible. It was this rock that Christ said to Peter, “ on this Rock, I will build my church.”

 We realized that this rock was over some kind of vortex of water, much like the Foundation Stone in Jerusalem. We were beginning to understand the instructions we received before this tour to activate three vortexes in Israel. One vortex was here in the north of the Galilee, the other being the "Holy of Holies"in Jerusalem and the third one in the south in the desert near Timna.

As the moon grew full over our heads, our ceremony went late into the evening hours. Many souls crossed through our portal as this location had also been the area of the Six Day War in 1973.  A special ceremonial staff was used, given to me by a group of Israeli women peace workers. The staff had been carried into peace work in Israel for the last thirty years. Recently they received the message that a peace worker from oversees would be coming to Israel to open the Heart of Israel. The group presented the staff to me upon my first week here in Israel and now we used it to ground ourselves to the portal and open the Living Waters of Mercy into the hearts of Israel.

The following morning we continued with talking circles and more drumming. People from the campground area where we stayed were coming around us now. When a group asked to join us, a few members of our group did not hear them over the drumming and a misunderstanding took place. A man named Jeffrey, walked over to our circle very anger, thinking we were not aligned to the meaning of Shalom and were not including all as one and so he started to scream and yell. He grabbed a drumstick and began smashing on Grandmother Drum, yelling and screaming and cursing. Our group, men and woman alike, were shocked, but well prepared as we were deeply unified in the heart. Though he even pushed me and John and a few others, we all remained silent and enveloped him in our love. After he vented his anger he stormed off. Our group felt the shock waves for a while as this brought up memories of war and violence in Israel for several women. We held a circle to share the teachings we had just received from Jeffrey. As the heat rose to midday, we decided to do a healing ceremony in the Sea of Galilee with two amazing crystal bowls. As we floated in the cool water, toning and saying the Living Waters Global Prayer, we saw that Jeffrey was also swimming nearby, trying to cool himself down after the rage he displayed in our circle. With him was a beautiful painted horse. Because of the heat, he was also cooling the horse down in the Sea of Galilee. We could tell he was walking towards us in the water and wanted to be part of our ceremony and somehow to reconcile with us. Slowly he drifted over to our large circle holding hands. As he neared, I opened the circle and reached out my hand to him. I kissed his hand, he, trembling, kissed mine back. He was now enveloped in the healing of our group. Some of the women that had been activated by him earlier came over to pet his horse. No words were said and yet the healing for everyone was phenomenal. Later as we went back into the grass gazebo for our afternoon circle, Jeffrey came walking up to gift our group, a large watermelon in his hands. We all received it and him with gratitude.  

The afternoon was filled with more song, sharing and Ho'oponopono ceremony. We were even serenaded by one of our participants, Carlie Fairburn, a beautiful singing songwriter from Australia. She reminded me so much of my 2002/2003 Australia Tour Coordinator Amrahla North who died in 2003 from a snakebite. The day Amrahla died, another well-known Aboriginal Elder, Auntie Alice Kelly, also died. Auntie Alice had told me of when I would return to Australia. “ I will sing you back,” she said. That afternoon, Carlie decided to sing for me the only Aboriginal Chant she knew. I began to weep, knowing this was my portal moment. The chant was the very one Amrahla had taught me that I had forgotten. After six years I might now be being called back to Australia. As I looked in my hands at the new staff given to me, it has three branches; one with an eagle painted on it and the other branch with a snake and the third is a mounted antler. The message of the healing caduceus shows itself again, the awakening of the kundalini and the flight of the spirit. 

The moon was now full over the Galilee. To close the ceremony we brought the Grandmother Drum to the exact location of where seven underground ancient springs meet the Galilee next to St Peters Rock.  We took video here and were in awe to see what appeared on the screen. Look for the Pyramid of Light, The Star of David, the red triangle turning into a face, an angel and others that appeared. This video is as is taken with a cheap Sony 800x. Check it out!  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oOgC5vdyk04&feature=related

After the weekend Portal Ceremony we were told two amazing synchronicities. From a recent drilling project, a pristine reservoir north of the Sea of Galilee had just been found that weekend. This water is now going to be pumped into the Sea of Galilee to raise the water level! Another river in the north, that has been dry for a number of years, just started to run that weekend. Aho! Miracles are always part of Indiana Jane’s adventures!

Journey to Center of the Universe




Oreit Angel and I spent four hours in the tunnels on the Western Wall in the Holy City of Jerusalem 
this week, meditating and recording the incredible sound of the vortex beneath the Foundation StoneThis vortex is considered the Center of the Universe under the Western Wall of the original Solomon's Temple.  From a serious of synchronistic meetings that day,
 the spot where I am standing in the photo is where Grandmother Drum will have special permission to play at dawn on LIVE H20 weekend June 21, 2009.
With me in one photo is a man that took our tickets by the door. After we exited the tunnels, he came up to me, seeing how I spent so much time in meditation/chanting and saw immediately that I was on some sacred mission here. So he  looked around to see if anyone was watching him and then waved me to follow him. He said he had something special to share with me ( though he was not suppose to bring me there) and brought me to the NEW excavation site of the MIKVE (no one is allowed here at this point) where the sacred purifying waters are surfacing. He said to me "the archaeologists are not sure where this water is coming from."
This MIKVE had held the waters where the temple priests would purify themselves before entering Solomons Temple into the "Holy of Holies" ( where the Arc of the Covenant was said to be kept). I felt like saying to the guard, "Well, we all know where the water is coming from!". I couldn't help but feel that Spirit was guiding me here and asking me to bath myself and purify before bring the Grandmother Drum down here on June 21st to activate and amplify this amazing planetary vortex. The guard allowed me to bless myself with the healing waters of the Mitzvah and take some in a small bottle with me. WOW !!! Humanity is becoming a Holy Temple and is rising up in consciousness. This is the time prophesied indeed! Prophecy below.
 -Indiana Jane on the trail in Jerusalem
In the Old Testament it is written that the Jewish Messiah will come into the Old City from the Mt. of Olives, riding on a donkey through the Eastern Gate and he will bring the thousand years of peace.  When this would happen, water would begin to flow for the first time from under the Temple. (today's Dome of the Rock or Temple Mount is built over the original site of Solomon’s Temple where the Ark of the Covenant  is said to have been housed).
On June 19-21, 2009 Grandmother Drum will hold ceremonies from the Mt of Olives, Eastern Gates, under the Western Wall, on the Temple Mount and at Jaffa Gate to activate and awaken the consciousness of  this vortex.

Sea of Galilee


Well I have to tell you a story from the first week of the Israel Tour. Its important now so you can understand the ceremony we are about to do next weekend. During our first week in Israel, after a channel session with a Grandfather Zion, he told us of a special portal to activate at the Sea of Galilee. We plan to activate this sacred spot on June 5-6, 2009 weekend.  He said, "This is our covenant to complete. Place this Holy Arc (the drum) from whence the sea meets the catacombs and we shall rise. "

Our hosts Timna, Noga, Anat and Kochav took us on a journey to the Sea of Galilee to check the location that Grandfather Zion described and where, while in trance, I had seen clearly in my inner sight. Now Indiana Jane and her crew of sisters must go find it. 

The Israeli women were in rare form that morning for a 3 hr drive north, talking and laughing the whole way. It was Anat's birthday and they made her a lovely crown of flowers that she wore on her head. They took John, Tymoreye' and I to a special place on the north of the lake where there is a beautiful cave and an underground river that comes out into the Sea of Galilee. Maybe this was the place where the "catacombs met the sea."  As we parked and walked down some stone stairs to the beach area, I suddenly smelled  frankincense burning, whafting on the light breeze. 

My mind flashed back to a message we received in a session with Grandfather Magi before we left Alaska.

Follow the star to Bethlehem, follow the star in the east. You can smell out the location. You can smell them out. Go sniffing like dogs in my lands for the gold, frankincense and the myrrh."

I suddenly got the feeling come over by body when I am on the trail of one of the Grandmothers or Grandfathers clues. It’s that energy that runs my spine and makes me tingle and I become extra alert and present.

I look to my right and there are a group of Bedouin women sitting by a round stone well. In the center of the women is a very old Grandmother sitting on the rock bench and staring at me. They wave me over. I am feeling strange, but somehow know this is important. I follow the smell of the frankincense.  Since I cannot speak Arabic or Hebrew, Timna follows me and begins to interpret as the old grandmother grabs my hand and stares at me. She is 96 and her eyes are rather mystical as she stares through her cataracts like a looking glass.

 I knell before her and look into her ancient eyes. I suddenly have another flashback to a dream I had before I left Alaska.  In the dream,  I was in some kind of market and a beautiful woman in Middle Eastern dress came up to me, took my hand and with an oil lamp in the other hand guided me to an old grandmother. Sure enough the old grandmother I was kneeling before right now was her! The granddaughter standing next to her was also the younger woman in the dream with the oil lamp! Suddenly I became even more alert because when I woke up from that dream I had months ago, I could not remember exactly what the grandmother had told me. I knew somehow it was an important message. Well it seems like she had come back in my living dream to help me remember! 

My attention comes back to the moment and the grandmother is looking me deep in the eye, holding my hand with her feeble but firm grasp. She is talking on and on to me in Arabic. Her granddaughter interprets in Hebrew to Timna and then Timna tells me in English.

Where is your man she said? ( she seems to know I am not married anymore, but have been told I will meet a man this year.). This question seems a bit strange as my relationship these past ten years have been focused around the Grandmother Drum and the medicine work of the Grandmothers and Grandfathers. I haven't really given too much time to what I want aside from this service and I am surprised that this is my important message!

I then explain to the Bedouin grandmother, that the man for me has not showed up yet. Then as if she knows my mind, she says. "Do you really want to get married?" ( I have been talking about bringing a man back into my life this year) I look into her eyes knowing that she is asking me if I really want what I have saying I want.

I feel the question like an arrow, direct and poignant. I think to myself, "Well yes I guess I have to really want something, not just sort of . So I reply to her" Yes I do."

She then says, "Then stop traveling all over the world to find him. Go back home to your own land and plant your roots and he will come.”

She tells me I must go down the steps to the river flowing into the Sea of Galilee, remove my clothes and cleanse myself in the waters. After that I cannot hug or touch anyone for an hour. Then the ceremony will be complete. We mingle with the women a few more minutes, and then I head on down the stone stairs alone to the river. I am still rather stunned that this is the message I came here for. I expected it to be some great mission of service to the people of Israel with Grandmother Drum. Well I guess maybe it is!

At the end of some kind of spiritual baptism under the waterfall of this river, I find a gold bead shining under the water. I pick it up. It’s a small fruit they call Dimom. I hear a voice inside say take this and eat.

I come out of the river and sit on the rocks where all them women of our group are now gathered. The Bedouin women have come down to the beach with a bowl of these very same fruits and offer them to me.

The fruit is known as “ Eves Apple” and is good for the settling the stomach. The Bedouin women were now laughing and sharing with the Israeli women and Timna told me this exchange is a rare gift.

The granddaughter wanted to tell me that her grandmother had not been to the Sea of Galilee in a very long time. She had told her granddaughter, " We must go today, because there was someone she had to meet at the well. " That someone was me. 

Before we leave, I recall yet another session last fall with the Grandmother Ana Maya saying to me, " Jesus met the women at the well. Go meet the women at the well and she will tell you everything!”  I remembered this line so clearly because it echoed the old Peter Paul and Mary song. The next line of that song felt like my truth today, “ And he told her everything she’d ever done.”

As we drove home and  around the lake  we pass the original site of the town of Bethlehem and I ask Kochav, our driver, what her name actually means. She say’s  it means “ star”. Now it dawns on me the repeated phrase the Grandmothers and Grandfathers kept giving us about the work here in Israel.  “Follow the star  in the east, follow the star to Bethlehem!” 

So here we are in yet another amazing day of synchronicity with Indiana Jane and the crew at the Sea of Galilee!

Power at the Heart of Grace




On May 16, 2009 twenty five women and men gathered for a full day workshop Power at the Heart of the Medicine Wheel with Grandmother Drum in Qadima, Israel.

We shared teachings of the Grandmothers and Grandfathers about the attunement of the Light Body and the importance of being our own note in the music of the Uni-Verse. As the Grandmothers and Grandfathers teach us about the new octave coming into Mother Earth from the Sun and the center of the Milky Way, human consciousness is taking a quantum leap.  To go through this deep transformation consciously, they have given us detailed instructions on cleansing and purifying the body, the emotions (the waters) the mind and the spirit and reminding us of the correct Human Design of Energy of our vehicle, the sacred temple of the body we have been given. (For more information on the complete instructions and teachings of the Grandmothers and Grandfathers to date go to:

The Language of One online course: http://whirlingrainbow.com/online%20language.htm

During the day, we underwent two sound attunements to prepare for the Prismatic Fire Light Body journey with Grandmother Drum. The most recent sound attunement was given to me in a dream a week ago in Clil, Israel. The Grandmothers came in the dream and I asked them, " How to we open the Gate of Grace in Jerusalem?"

They instructed me to teach everyone to use the Ha Breath before an after tuning each chakra or energy center through the vowel sounds. The Grandmothers and Grandfathers called this the Gate of Grace or Gate of Mercy Meditation. This expands and deepens the work of Ho'oponopono, and the Ha Breath we bring to Israel from our work in Hawaii in March and gives Israeli's a Golden Key for opening the Gates of Mercy. This technique has been a profound combination to assist each one of us to take responsibility of our piece of the peace work for Israel. We will culminate this work in the Holy City on July 19, 2009, bringing Grandmother Drum to energetically open the Gates of Mercy. See our newsletter for dates and details at:http://whirlingrainbow.com/newsletter.htm

The 2009 Israel Tour has been named  Mayim H'ayim, LIVE WATER, to continue our work since 2006 as the new Marianna waters of the Mother Earth break open and begin the birth of a new humanity. We have been focused on bringing together the  Universal Solvent of Water together with the Universal Language of Music ( in particular the 528 hertz of Grandmother Drum) to produce the Universal Healer "Love" and infuse it in all Mother Earth's waters including our bodies which are 80% water..We are deepening our knowledge of the healing power of Water as we realize that the word mercy in the Hebrew language translates to " womb or spirit of the water." The healing waters, our tears and our emotions are the gateway to mercy and grace in our world.

Our Israel Tour Coordinator and Elder, Dvora Pearlmen says it best,
"There is one clear way we know our heart has opened. Only if the heart is touched deeply and opens, then our tears (the waters) will always flow from our eyes."

In the upcoming ceremonies here in Israeli we are focusing on giving this Golden Key method to open this Gate of Grace in Israel. This will culminate in the LIVE H20 Concert for the Living Waters televised live with Grandmother Drum  activating the Holy City on June 19th 
(Gates of Mercy) and June 21, 2009 (Jaffa Gate). For more details on LIVE H20, go to www.liveh2o.org For more details on the Israel Tour schedule go to:

All Jobs in the Qadima Forest


On May 14, 2009 the staff of All JOBS, the largest employment firm in Israel, gathered in the forest of Qadima for a special private Prayerformance with Grandmother Drum. White Eagle, Tymoreye and John were welcomed by All Jobs Director, Revital Hendler who has been instrumental in supporting the Grandmother Drum's 2009 Israel Tour.  Since the Grandmother Drum was a surprise for the staff, everyone opened the crate together and welcomed the gift for the celebration...Grandmother Drum.














I shared with the staff how important it is at this unprecedented time that we support people in finding the work that they truly love. If everyone did only the work they loved, the world would transform overnight! Grandmother Drum brought to them the potent power of  heart in remembering to live the life you love. Over eighty staff danced and sang as the sun went down in the Qadima Forest. I am thrilled when someone takes the microphone and leads the group with Hebrew songs. I have learned a few now and I am determined to learn at least six Hebrew songs before we leave Israel. Thanks again to Revital and Alex for all the work it took in bringing us all together!

In the Olive Trees of Peace



On May 7, 2009 we made our way on the road again, this time to the oldest settlement in Israel, Nahalal.  Compared to most

 of our world tours, the travel here between communities seems minimal as the country is only 800 kilometers in length.  Israeli’s are stunned when we tell them we are from Alaska and that it’s so big it could fit 73 Israelis in it! Oh vey!

We met our hosts, Rhonda Joy Eagle and her friends Varda and Yoav place who have an amazing garden named " soil and Soul" with over 600 medicine plants.  Tonight we would host a special ceremonial Prayerformance between two olive trees holding a sacred stone circle of power.

The garden is built in the shape of a human man and has seven chakra of gardens. Tonight Grandmother Drum would activate the Base Chakra (feet) of the gardens, opening a new vibration of our luminous body into the body of Israel.

Varda reminded me of the Old Testament story of how the olive branch in the mouth of the dove became the symbol of peace for Israel and the world. It’s the story of Noah and the flood and how Noah sends the white dove out to see if there was land anywhere.  The dove returns the first time with nothing. He sends the dove a second time in another direction and again the dove returns with nothing. The third time the dove is released, it returns with an olive branch in its mouth. It told Noah there was a new land to begin their new life. Somehow this seems so symbolic. I reflect on how, even now, Grandmother Morning Dove is whispering to us from this place too.

At 6pm, Yoav  towed Grandmother Drum ‘s trailer to the gardens with his John Deere tractor. Sixty passionate family gathered for an evening of ceremony, prayer, healing and renewal. I love watching their faces of the Israelis, especially the children as we opened the crate and they get to unwrap the love present of Grandmother Drum.  We have been telling the Israeli people that the whole world is watching Israel and that we were brought here with Grandmother Drum to assist in strengthen them on the path of heart to usher the world into the thousand years of peace.

After a month of ceremonies its becoming tradition here for the Israelis to sing

 Grandmother Drum out of her crate, off the trailer and onto the land with a Hebrew Rainbow Tribe song.  I love singing it with them again and again watching as they sing it louder and louder, clapping their hands and lifting Grandmother Drum over their heads and onto this Holy Land. Some people even commented at the last festival (without knowing about our research)  that when they carried Grandmother Drum that they felt like they were carrying the Ark of the Covenant! As the nearly full moon shines through the draping olive branches,

  I have a  intense moment of heighten awareness and get “Spirit Chills.”   I know deep within me that somehow what we are creating together here in Israel with Grandmother Drum’s pure crystal tone on these sacred sites is something so spiritually momentous. After eight years of touring across the world, the journey here seems a palatable turning point.  We seem to be making the shift now from the Hopi prophesized time of Purification or Biblical Tribulation into Revelations, the spiritual awakening of a Divine Humanity.  Or maybe its just what’s happened within me over these years. Suddenly, I am whisked back to the moment by the song and I join in passionately.

Adama Veshamaim  (earth and sky)                                                                        

Ch’om Haesh Tzlil Hamain      (the heat of the fire, the sounds of the waters)                    

Ani Margish Zot Begufi            ( I feel this in my body)                                                              

Beruhi Benishmati                        (spirit and soul)

Hey Ya Hey Ya Hey Ya Hey Ya Hey Ya Hey Ya Hey Ya Ho                                                           

Hey Ya Hey Ya Hey Ya Hey Ya Hey Ya Hey Ya Hey Ya Ho       

Hey Ya Hey Ya Hey Ya Hey Ya Hey Ya Hey Ya Hey Ya Ho

During the ceremony we gifted Yoav and Varda a medicine bundle of blue corn seed given to us by the Maya during our extensive 2007 Eagle and Jaguar Tour from Alaska to Guatemala.  As we take our first steps of our luminous bodies from the base chakra of this Garden of Eden, we are told by the Grandmothers and Grandfathers of the importance of pure super foods to feed the Light Body. We shared how important corn is to our indigenous peoples and how on the 2007 tour we worked to preserve this original seed corn from the threats of genetic modification (GMO).  On that tour we were able to bring the original seed from both the Tarahumara tribe of Mexico and the Maya of Central America to be preserved with three major seed banks in America and Canada.

The evening in the olive grove culminated with everyone joining in their own verses of the Gratitude Song. Some women and men made very ethereal sounds and it as if they were channeling the very voices of the garden divas. The night ended with our group smiling widely in a divine drunkenness  (what I have repeatedly termed as that “Grandmother Drum Glow.”) The Israeli’s then led us in an encore of sacred Hebrew chants.  Tonight we are one in the Garden of Eden. Toda, Toda, Toda raba ( thank you, thank you, thank you very much!) Lila Tov (good night).

On May 9, 2oo9 we shared a one day workshops with sound, breath and medicine wheel teachings to strengthen the Light Shield of the Heart. Thanks to our hosts for a wonderful deepening. HAAAAAAAAAAAAA.

 

Gates of Mercy Open Within


After the three-day Janana Festival we took a few more days of rest and integration at Dvora’s quiet Clil farm. We took walks to pick fresh Sage and even visited Clil beautiful Peace Garden funded by an Australian woman that Dvora said met me in a Sweat Lodge while we toured in Australia in 2003.  What a deeply restful place on the hillside with a rose quartz triangle in the center of the gazebo. I meditated and then asked the Grandmothers about what was happening in my right knee and hip since I have had some swelling since I have been in Israel.  I found it so amazing that the woman who built this was in the very Sweat Lodge where my  Australian Tour Coordinator Amrahla had gone into a Como after an unknown brown snake bite. Was this part of the answer to what was still healing in my cells?

On Wednesday, we hosted an introductory evening on our medicine work for the local families of Dvora’s community. Thirteen of us gathered for the evening.  As we had now been guided to hold a ceremony to vibrationally open the Eastern Gates of Mercy in Jerusalem in June, I had asked the Grandmothers to guide me the night  before in my dreamtime to how to do this.  That night in dream the Grandmothers gave me a meditation with specific tones to open the gates (chakras) of our Inner Temple to wash the body clean, creating within all centers of our being a luminescent state of purity and grace. I shared this for the first time with the Wednesday group, chanting each tone three times together with the HA Breath. WOW!

The Grandmothers were once again perfectly accurate when they told us this HA Breath combined with the tones would activate the Quantum Yin of the heart within each chakra infusing it with this divinely gentle and soft vibration. I then remembered in the Heart of One Lessons how Grandmother Morning Dove called this her “feather soft” breath. This breath could penetrate very, very deeply and heal some of the deepest traumatic memories in the body, in particularly to the terror that lives in the cells from such events.

This technique proved to be extremely potent and all four of our staff when through an intensive healing in the next few days.  In my own cathartic release, it felt I was releasing some deep terror from my cells. Was this from that night in 2003 in Australia with Amrahla? Was I picking up memories of all the wars on this land?  It didn’t matter. I just know I was able to release the energy from my body. The next day I began to understand how valuable this healing salve could become to the people of Israel. Thank you Grandmothers for once again guiding my every step perfectly.

“I am manna. I am the Morning Dove. I ask you to know the manna of the Morning Dove. I ask you to feel the manna of the Morning Dove.  I wish for you to know me.  I wish for you to feel my breath upon your face. I wish for you to know my peace.

I am this very soft breath across your face. With this breath, I touch and realign your spine. I will open the beacon on your crown and it will become soft, like a baby. You will be born again only with this gentle breath.”Grandmother Morning Dove, Heart of One Lesson 3 Part 1

The Heartbeat at Janana


On April 30, 2009 Grandmother Drum was joined on the stage by some fabulous djembe drummers including Eyal of the King David Peace Drummers Army as we conducted the Opening Ceremonies of the Janana Festival. It was a beautiful evening with over 250 people gathered at Kibbutz Inbar for the three day festival celebrating the heartbeat that connects us all. An organic pulse of life continued to waft from the hilltop over the local farmlands and everyone seemed in such a joyful and happy mood. The sun was shining and hearts were glowing.  We even received an email from a German woman who in 2001, joined our building team in the tipi in Alaska to assist in the final stretching of the hind onto Grandmother Drum. When she found out we would be in Israel she flew from Germany to be part of the Opening Ceremonies of the Janana Festival. I recognized Andrea instantly and we threw our arms around each other. It had been eight years since we had seen each other in the tipi and hundreds of thousands of miles under my feet.  She  said she had followed our tours all these years hoping someday to see Grandmother Drum again. The weekend was life-changing for Andrea and its great to have her back in our family.

We were also honored to meet many healers, musicians and artists from around the world dedicated to sacred music and the healing it bring us all. We had a chance to meet with one of our hosts Rhonda Joy Eagle and Monica who both have worked as Moon Mothers in a sacred medicine dance known as the Dance of One. This dance was given in vision to a woman named Jean White Eagle who worked with Joseph Rael (Beautiful Painted Arrow) and his work with sacred sound healing chambers. Since the Grandmothers had given me the design of building a sacred sound chamber in Alaska, including all the specs, nearly three years ago, I was excited that I must be connecting with these women for several projects that are becoming ripe to begin.

Also every year during our tours, we hold one or more Portal Activation Ceremonies which I would learn from Rhonda, was similar in some ways to how J ean White Eagle leads the Dance of One.  Knowing that we both received these visions from Spirit, I was very curious and excited to meet Jean. In the last two weeks alone, I have met seven women that have worked together with Jean and one gave me a book just written on the Dance of One. Jean and her husband John have even recently taken the Dance of One to South Africa. So synchronicities abound.  During the festival weekend, Monica, a woman from Mexico with the help of a group of musicians and healers, led a small dance and the power of the healings that took place were beautiful. I was able to assist in the healings and we all felt a deep closeness developing.  These women will be hosting Grandmother Drum in the town of Nahalal next weekend and I have a feeling Spirit is doing some sacred weaving of medicines for work to come.

At the festival we had a chance once again to participate in the Hebrew Friday evening Shabbat’s ceremony, a beautiful night of sacred music and prayer. am even learning some of the Hebrew songs. I keep telling everyone that I may have to move here just for Shabbat as it’s the most sacred space of music I have ever participated in. The waves of love, tears and deep meditation are led by angelic voices in deep praise of the divine. This is true bliss!
