When the Moon Stands Between Our Sun and Earth

Why should we care about the upcoming solar eclipse/new moon/Summer Solstice? What possible difference could it make in our personal lives when the moon nestles itself between the sun and Earth?

Much as humans seem to thrive on “us vs. them” mentality in sports or daily politics there is actually nothing more inclusive and uniting than being a human on Earth, especially now when global population is at its highest point in history – far as we know. We share the same home planet, we bathe in the same pool of planetary energies, and we receive the same solar, galactic and universal downloads on a 24 hour basis. Our DNA molecules are being greatly affected by these seen and unseen forces of the cosmos. They are fundamentally changing our very structure to help us adapt to the rapidly mutating on and off planet environments.

While this may sound like we’re always on the receiving end of forces greater than ourselves, we must also keep in mind we are built like antennae, receiving and transmitting signals within our cells, amongst each other, within our local and global weather environment, and as a collective beyond the planet, even into the ‘tween spaces of unseen dimensions. Hence, what we do on Earth affects Earth but does not stay on Earth, and that is a huge burden of power for better or for worse.

Through the built-in wisdom of our heartbeat we are synched with the rhythm of the Earth’s “heartbeat”, also known as the Schumann Resonance. The planet, with its own unique consciousness truly knows us, more intimately than we may realize. Our indigenous ancestors understood this and honored the relationship between human and Earth since time immemorial. The disconnect with Nature has only been a fairly recent phenomenon, spurred initially by early church doctrines that deemed the material world (including the human body) as less-than its spiritual counterpart, to the more recent birth of the new religion: science.

The separation was probably a required part of the human evolutionary process to see just how far we would push the limits of internal division and what that experience had to teach us. However, we have divided ourselves from our environment for so long and to such extremes we are reaching the point of detriment to our species’ survival. The planet is not so much at risk because the inherent wisdom and unwavering force to birth new life is its primary function. It will always resurrect itself. One need only look at the unrelenting force to survive that every form of life, right down to the plant seedling, shows against all odds. Whether from man-made destruction or catastrophic damage from asteroids, volcanos, fires and floods, life on Earth persists.

Survival against all odds.

Because of an innate ability to see the signs in the stars and commune with the earthly and heavenly realms our ancestors sought to unify these forces within themselves and their environment. They erected stone structures to increase their crop yield and tap into the life informing, multi-dimensional energies of nature and cosmos. They built monuments that would stand the test of time and environmental wear & tear, embedded with the sacred mathematics that mirrored the heavens to help us – their offspring, so when the time came we might regain the wisdom they knew would be lost in great upheavals. Their essence is embedded in our very genetics. Built-in biotools, if you will, passed down through the generations enabling us to foretell coming weather changes, migration patterns, and communicate with animals, plants and the unseen realms. Ancient people knew the elementals of fire, water, air, earth and aether to be our family, our ancient mentors from Earth’s inception. For those who would listen they reach out, offering help and whispering to us in our dreams.

The ancient people respected and watched for cues from wildlife and the plants that chose to grow in and around them as medicine on-offer for whatever ailed them at that time. Even now, in the teachings of plant spirit medicine it is understood that whatever “weeds” we find growing outside our immediate home environment were called in through resonate frequency emitted by the home dwellers. For example, one may find numerous dandelions popping up in sidewalk cracks and lawn where the occupant is in dire need of a liver detox, stronger bones, or lowering of blood pressure. They may find plantain growing nearby when they need to reduce cholesterol, resolve bronchitis, constipation, or heal wounds.

Jasmine flower, healer of wounds, stress, fever and much more…

Some of the most ancient teachers, however, are planetary movements – rhythms of such vast perfection and proportion they astonish human reason. The cyclical dance of our sun, moon and earth opens necessary portals that drastically change the Earth’s ionosphere, magnetic field, and alters our body/mind. The light, or rather lack of it during an eclipse also affects our internal systems:

“Biorhythms are particularly sensitive to the coming and going of the light emitted from the primary day and night luminaries.  These quite subtle ‘cyclically recurring pattern of physiological states in an organism or organ, such as alpha rhythm or circadian rhythm, are believed by some to affect physical and mental states and behavior’.”
The Free Dictionary – Biorhythm

Changes in light from an eclipse also changes our digestion:

“…When even animals know not to eat, especially not large, heavy meals during an eclipse, it would seem that homo sapiens would understand the same. From a scientific perspective, it is now well understood that the strength of the human digestive fire (also known collectively as digestive enzymes and process) is directly related to the path of the sun in the sky.  The higher the sun is, the more brightly the digestive fire burns.  Hence, it is better to eat the main meal of the day close to noontime when the sun is at its zenith.

“Because the digestive power is greatly diminished during an eclipse, it is highly recommended not to eat, or eat very little (and food that is very easy to digest) if one must. Conversely, it is good to engage in spiritual practices which counteract any adverse effects of an eclipse.  All religious traditions and many indigenous peoples had their various customs around eclipse events; however, most of them have been gradually discarded or little observed over the last few centuries.”

— The Millennium Report, 2015

While we may not fully understand all the repercussions of these powerful solar system events we can expand our understanding and connection to these grand movements by staying curious and respectfully listening to older, often wiser bodies of ancient wisdom. We are intertwined in this cosmic dance, and the forces at work have no interest in our race, color, gender, age, or religion. They affect us all equally, though perhaps in varying degrees depending on our current state of physical and mental health, and where we are on the planet. We can join the dance or stay in our egos and pretend we are separate from our environment. While we may fool ourselves into believing we are masters and controllers of Nature our behavior and beliefs only reveal our immaturity. We are a very young species and still have much to learn, or perhaps re-learn. If we wish to consciously relax into this upcoming grand solar eclipse/ new moon/ summer solstice event we just might get a taste of the Love permeating all of creation. It’s always our choice.

Note: June 20, 2020, solar eclipse occurs at 0 degrees of the sign Cancer, 8:45 pm and new moon at 11:41 pm pacific nw time (northern hemisphere).

Blue Light Biorythm Damage

Hot, dry, burned out eyes

Some years ago when car headlights and street lights were swiftly changing out to halogen and LED it felt like the peace of quiet time after sunset had been stolen. Driving at night, one of my favorite times to get behind the wheel with a cooling breeze, twinkling night skies and clear roads had become painfully dominated by piercing blue headlights. The LEDs in the overhead street lights were installed to save energy so the city told us, but at what price? The ability to sit out and look at the stars was swiftly destroyed. The local astronomy group was publishing non-stop about light pollution. Nature articles increasingly warned how these new lights were messing with wildlife’s natural sleep cycle. Sea turtles, confused by the coastline dotted with bright hotel lights were laying their eggs out of season making them vulnerable to predators.

More recently a client told me how his chronic jaw pain and headaches nearly vanished after he started wearing amber tinted glasses while working long hours on his computer. I’d never heard of that correlation, but remembered that I also resorted to wearing amber “gamer shades” to drive at night. The article linked below explains the value of wearing such tinted lenses for prolonged viewing of screens (tv, phone, game systems) especially after the natural light of day has passed.

“What are the effects of blue light exposure at night? When we become chrono-misaligned, or out of sync with our biology, we can experience symptoms such as:
* insomnia and/or chronic sleep deprivation
* hormonal imbalances
* adrenal fatigue
* anxiety and depression
* a sense of being chronically tired or overwhelmed
* weight gain
* decreased REM sleep and overall reduced sleep quality (this study was done specifically on iPads, but applies to all blue-light emitting devices). Even the American Medical Association has warned that high-intensity lights ‘emit unseen blue light that can disturb sleep rhythms and possibly increase the risk of serious health conditions, including cancer and cardiovascular disease,’ writes The Washington Post. They’re talking about street light specifically in that warning, but the same principle applies to all blue-light emitting devices used at night.”

Please take this article to heart and consider buying a pair of amber shades if you do a lot of gaming, night reading on your phone, iPad and such. Eat plenty of colorful, organic plant foods to strengthen your day and night vision. That includes but not limited to broccoli, carrots, blueberries, bilberries, dandelion flowers (eaten raw, fried in batter, or make into dandelion jam or wine), dandelion greens (nice salad addition, pick the leaves when their young), spinach, kale, lettuce, and peas.

Love’s Roses

Went to the grocery store after work today. An African-American man in line in front of me had a beaauuuutiful bouquet of oranges roses in his grocery basket. I asked if he bought them there, as I’d never seen flowers sold at that store. He didn’t hear me but the cashier did, and she replied “He bought them elsewhere and brought them in with him.” Then she said to him, “You have a very lucky friend to get such pretty roses from you.” His voiced picked up in volume and he said, “I bought them for me because being an African-American man right now I feel such grief and I need to show myself some love.” An African-American woman was standing behind me, but she was elderly and maybe didn’t hear him. My eyes teared up a bit. I stepped forward to get his attention and said, “You need to know we love you.❤️“ He dipped his head a bit and softly replied, “Thank you.” When he walked away the cashier said, “ He’s a lovely man.”

If only they knew the love so many of us feel, if only the media would pay more attention to those who are doing acts of kindness between races, if only people wouldn’t be so shy and just shared the truth of their hearts as he did today, and as we did in return. I’ve been having such intimate encounters like this lately and they feel like golden opportunities to give Love a voice.

The photo of the roses are from my garden. They pale in comparison to one’s he chose for himself, but I share them here in his honor, and in honor of all who are oppressed and needing to know how truly loved they are.

If you take anything away from this, please express yourself. Don’t wait. The time is now to speak, share, express and represent Love more than ever before.🌷❤️

Tikka Masala Naan Pizza

This creative recipe credit goes to my hubby who has contemplated a savory pizza blend of India and Italy for some while. Depending on how you make it this could be one giant pizza or, as in this case, four smaller ones served on pre-made naan bread.

The photo shows the brand of naan he used – for easy reference, but you may choose to substitute your own favorite. As always, the ingredients can be adjusted to fit any dietary preference!

Making this on a grill was touch-n-go for him. Initially the naan pizza was placed in the grill at the required temperature for just a few minutes but the bottom burned. Next, he put it on a grill stone surface thinking it would prevent overcooking, yet it burned again! Obviously, our grill runs much hotter than the temp gauge shows. The recipe instructions here suggest you bake it in a regular oven, middle shelf, but check on it after every few minutes. Burned slightly or not, it was DEEELISH! Happy cooking, and if you make it let us know how it went! 🙂

The ingredients.

Tomato Sauce:
8 oz. tomato Sauce
4 TBS Plain Yogurt
4 TBS heavy Cream
2-3 tsp sugar – to taste

Spice Mix:
1 tsp Cumin
1 tsp Paprika
1 tsp Garam Masala

2 TBS Butter
4 cloves Garlic minced
Salt to taste
4 Store bought Naan Bread (appx. 7in diameter), or can make pizza dough and do a thin crust pizza as option
Olive Oil for brushing

Red Onion
Roasted Garlic
Chopped Cilantro
Grated Mozzerella Cheese


  1. Prepare sauce and spice mix in separate bowls
  2. Heat small pan and melt the butter. Saute minced garlic until aromatic. Pour in the spice mix and sauté until fragrant (1-2min) on med. heat.
  3. Add tomato sauce and stir well to mix. Sprinkle salt to taste and simmer until sauce thickens (about 2min). Turn off heat
  4. Either pre heat oven at 450 degrees, or use a grill with a grill stone. Brush dough or pre made Naan with Olive oil. Spread sauce on Pizza crust. Add other toppings of your choice. Add mozzarella cheese to cover and sprinkle pizza with fresh chopped cilantro.
  5. In oven, bake for 8-10 min for fresh pizza dough, or 5-7min until cheese melted and bubbly with pre-made naan. On grill, check the bottom at 3min to make sure not burnt, and cook until cheese melted and bubbly.
Pizza prepped and ready to go in the oven.

Note: This recipe was inspired by the link below. The sauce recipe proved helpful in making a unique, vegetarian version (pictured in this blog).

The New Human

Another fabulous book I highly recommend: The New Human, Awakening to Our Cosmic Heritage, by Mary Rodwell; forward by Dr. Leo Sprinkle.

So many wonderful children are coming on board these days that have been designated the “letter kids” as they often are diagnosed with A.D.D., A.D.H.D., Asbergers, Savant Autistic, and many are prone to hyper-sensitivity to environmental stimuli, have multiple allergies, and are rich with gifts that require special cultivation. They are largely misunderstood and often forced into chemical oppression via meds, and boxed/labeled by a society that does not understand their needs and abilities. This book is the ultimate go-to for understanding what their role may be on Earth at this time, their dietary requirements, their genetic differences, and how we as parents, educators, physicians can meet them where they’re at rather than forcing them to conform to a broken system.

Author Mary Rodwell is a former nurse/midwife, counselor, clinical hypnotherapist, author, and Reiki Master. She is Principle of A.C.E.R.N., Co-Founder of Dr. Edgar Mitchell Foundation for Research Into Extraterrestrial Encounters (F.R.E.E.).

Our Human Potential

Due to the current CV-19 extravaganza I have been temporarily laid-off since March 19th this year as a licensed massage therapist, which has been very challenging in that my work is my meditation. It is where I go to socialize, provide safe, healing touch to a very broken, pain-ridden world of people who in turn help me keep perspective on life. They share their personal stories of tragedy, suffering, and healing victories which helps me appreciate the human species even more.

To be honest, in my youth into my young adult years, I didn’t have a great fondness for people. I found them hard to trust and didn’t always feel safe in their company. Such is the result of being raised in an often turbulent, abusive household. The flip side of that upbringing is I would find safe harbor in my deep, rich, inner world where art, music, animals and plants were sanctuaries I could rely on. They were safe, they were always there for me, and rarely caused me suffering.

Around 2nd grade I remember a conversation with my mom where I asked who God’s parents were. She laughed and said He didn’t have any. I was in shock! How could this be? Where did He come from then? These kinds of profound thoughts would leave my young mind restless at night as I pondered the stars. Little did I know, the Universe was listening!

Around age 11, while playing outside one summer evening at a nearby park with my younger sister and two grade school friends, my world was turned on its head. Looking up, as I often did (and still do) I saw a black void moving silently across the starry night sky, headed slowly in our direction. We were used to seeing the Goodyear blimp in the summer, with its bulky, oval shape, the basket underneath, engine whirring, and flashing “Goodyear Tires” in white lights along the length of its side. This was no blimp, however. Its silhouette revealed a behemoth, elongated oval shape with no discernible basket. It was dead silent and once it arrived directly overhead began moving in a great circle. It felt very conscious, as if it was quite aware of having our attention. Suddenly, one red light appeared at one end. We were giggly, shaking and in awe, whispering excitedly to each other a million questions about what it could be. No other people were in the area, which also seemed remarkable on a lovely night.


To our utter surprise and delight it flashed a row of lights in a very precise, repeated sequence of colors:, red, yellow, blue. They came on all at once and turned off. We squealed with excitement. It did this same flash on/off of colors a few more times, then went dark, but left the one red “tail” light on. Then, it did a most remarkable move, almost as if to prove beyond a doubt it was NOT a blimp. It slowly turned end over end, while still moving in a circle overhead. We could see the one red light going round and round, like some crazy, slow-motion carnival ride. I felt so overwhelmed with awe I was on the verge of passing out. What could it mean?! What was this strange, very powerful, playful, and mysterious object doing? What an incredible show! I have no idea how long it lasted as we were were so caught in the moment. After a few rounds of this, the mysterious object turned off all its lights, stopped spinning end over end, and silently floated off in the same direction it arrived from. We ran back to the apartment to tell my mom. She didn’t believe a word of it, and why would she?

Sadly, that was the only time I saw that great craft, but it forever changed me. Now I knew, at the tender age of 11, beyond a shadow of a doubt, there are far greater things at work than humans could imagine or create. It sparked a need to learn, read, investigate and dig deeper into my own psyche than ever before and I desperately needed to share and talk about my encounter. The few times I attempted to relay this experience to my young friends their reaction only served to make my life more lonely and isolated than ever. People thought I was inventing the story to divert my attention from an unhappy home life. Or, they just thought I had a great imagination, or worse – they would laugh at me. I needed more than ever to be taken seriously, but that was not going to happen. I learned to keep my secret world to myself, to only talk surface talk with people (which made me crazy), and avoid them for the most part. Until I had kids, then I had fresh new souls I could freely share my secrets, thoughts and belief in all things mystical and magical. They gave me fresh hope for the human species, and for my own inner child.

It is only in recent years that the topic of off-world, inner world, inter-dimensional, multi-dimensional life forms has come out of the “space closet”, as my friend Mary Rodwell terms it. She is one of Australia’s leading investigators into all things that fall into the UFO/“experiencer” realm, and has a solid background as a R.N., family counselor and author. Her work with experiencers and unyielding courage to bring this topic into the public domain, along with many other brave and brilliant souls who’ve faced public humiliation for sharing their stories, gives me the courage to speak my truth and share.

Sighting that craft was the ultimate experience, but it seemed to open doors to other high strangeness that would continue to this day. It also opened my mind to other topics of interest I might not have otherwise looked into, such as learning to see and communicate with plant spirits, animals, and the consciousness of planet Earth.

As a small example, I was sitting in the living room today practicing deep breathing, feeling grounded, letting go of the rambling thoughts, when I happened to glance between the blinds at the Japanese maple out back. A little face embedded in the many leaves was looking back at me. I’m sure a psychologist would analyze and reason that vision away, but whatever. I knew it was valid because it made my heart jump a little. I said in my mind, “Hold on! I wanna draw you, don’t go away,” and promptly got up to find my iPad. When I sat back down I couldn’t see it anymore which was disappointing. I returned to deep breathing, feeling grounded, letting go, then softly gazed out the window again. It was back! Doing my best to stay relaxed and focused I was able to sketch it out.

It is said that, due to the nature of our societal conditioning, we are programmed to be dialed into one reality, this physical 3D. But there are many more realities co-existing within ours to be heard, seen and experienced, and yet one must be willing to change the channel. How is that done? A good place to start is through relaxed, deep breathing, letting go of the monkey chatter, and allowing that soft, innocent, inquisitive, child-like nature to surface once again. It takes repetition and practice, but wow! The rewards are far-reaching. Not only is deep, relaxed breathing good for helping the nervous system to unwind and the body to heal, but over time has the potential to open one’s world up to other realities, possibilities and relationships that would otherwise be impossible to access.

In these daunting, unpredictable times that show no sign of letting up, we owe it to ourselves to break away from the social media banter and come back to our center, our hearts, our sanity. No one will do it for us, and yet our very survival as a species may demand nothing less. Our evolution requires our willingness to be more than we’ve ever imagined possible. We have the inherent birthright to maximize our true potential, to individually experience what it’s like to be a fully realized human being. We are precious, rare, powerful, and Divine, regardless of what society’s memes and negative conditioning would have us believe.

Now is the time, like never before to take back the reins and own our destiny. The Earth is moving ahead with or without us, for this planet too has the inherent right to evolve. If we tap into the soul of this heavenly body who generously provides us the food, air, water, fire and breathtaking beauty we need to live in the physical, and we acknowledge and honor the All Powerful Source that lives in our every heartbeat, we will truly be unstoppable – in a good way.

Stuffed Sweet Jewels (potato or yam)

To properly title this recipe blog I looked up the difference between yam, sweet potato, Japanese garnet, Jewel sweet potato (or yam), and yea… I ended up more confused than when I began. Call it what you will, but for now they are referred to as “Sweet Jewel Potato”. As you see by the photos, they have a lovely, deep orange color. Lots of carotene for maintaining strong vision!

A complete meal!

This recipe can made with any ingredients according to your diet preference. Certainly there are vegan options available for the yogurt, butter and cheese. Chives are super easy to grow in a container or outdoors, and they add nice flavor. The original recipe was found on Organize Yourself Skinny, but I have modified it to be vegetarian (or vegan).

3 good sized sweet jewel potatoes
2-3 Tbl Earth Balance butter
1/2 cup plain yogurt
4 tsp chives (fresh)
4 Field Roast breakfast links
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 tsp salt, or add to taste after cooked
parchment paper
baking sheet
aluminum foil

  • Preheat oven to 375.
  • Using a fork poke holes along the top of each potato three times. Lay a piece of parchment paper on your cookie sheet and place the potatoes on top. Place them on the middle shelf of a pre-heated oven. Set timer for 1 hour 15 mins.
  • About 40 mins into baking (or when you see the skins getting darker, pull them out. Use an oven mitt to pick each one up and loosely wrap foil around them to prevent skins from over-cooking; return them to oven to finish baking.
  • Crumble the breakfast links into a lightly oiled fry pan and sauteé till slightly crisp.
  • Combine in a bowl: butter, yogurt, chives, salt (opt), breakfast link crumbles, and cheese, set aside.
  • When potatoes are fully cooked, pull them out and let them cool on a heat-safe surface.
  • Slice their tops off with a serrated knife.
  • Scoop out their contents into the bowl of ingredients you made earlier and mix well. As you see in the photo I used a grapefruit spoon for scraping out the contents, but a fork or regular spoon will do.
  • Restuff the tops and bottoms of the jewels.
  • Reduce oven heat to 350.
  • Return them to oven and bake another 30 mins.
  • Remove from oven. EAT AND ENJOY!

You Are the Medicine, You Are the Cure – A Healing Meditation (music/video included)

As tensions rise out of frustration at being immobilized at our home fronts what better time to go within and re-member ourselves?

Please put a nice pair of earbuds or headphones on, kick back, and let this little message of love remind you of your essence, your power, and brightness of being.

Here is the link:

©Serenna, @rennadraws

Words to the meditation are posted under the video and here:

Feel the heartbeat of the Earth, drop deep into her core
Feel the heartbeat of the cosmos, rise high into the stars
Unite heaven and earth in your heart, and breathe….
Feel the rhythm of life that birthed you.

Sit in your center, in the eye of the storm
Call in your lost soul parts, from space and time
where trauma, grief and despair left you broken
Embrace the innocence within.

Observe your being, your vulnerable soft self
Floating in the currents, in the oceans of life
Let go, and trust, for now is all you have
The present, the gift, the eternal w/o end

So shines the sun on all life w/o preference
Life giving water quenches w/o judgment
Air gives oxygen to all who would receive it
The earth stays strong beneath your feet

You are of the elements, you are of the stars
You are the photons of light
You are the songs of the spheres
You are the magic, the spark of Love who seeks to know itself through your eyes, through your life.

New worlds are birthing, including the Earth
and paradigms of old crumble away
The future selves who’ve graduated this class
Are returning to support you at this time.

These are the final exams of the hologram
As you change so changes the world around you.
The tongue speaks from the heart
The state of one’s soul is in their words and deeds.

Alchemy is your power when you integrate opposing forces
Humility is a blessing and an ally
Be the thirst quenching elixir for souls in need
Bring forth your gifts, be generous with smiles and compassion.

You are the medicine, you are the cure
Everything you need you have.
As above, so below,
As within, so without

Float on, as the soft creatures who trust the journey
In letting go there is peace and mobility.
The currents will flow and we ride together
We are One, we are many, WE ARE HERE.
