Belovedness ~ The Sacred Union

 

This creation is an invitation, a remembrance and a celebration of the sacred union within ourselves, in our relationships and in our world. I created it with a deep sense of love, multi-layered awareness and humble awe. It was first shown to a small group at our collaborative Sacred Union Evening on April 30, 2016. Today, I vulnerably share it with you.

Today, May 22, 2016, I am also offering this on my own 23rd wedding anniversary in honor of the beloved love I have found within myself, in my life, and in the connection I now share with my husband, Brian. The image of the toes touching shown in this video are our actual toes as we sat together happily at the beach this year.

And now I offer the message I placed on this video creation:

This is an intimate remembrance and a timeless, soulful invitation to sacred union. It is a call to bring honoring, mutual respect and harmonious balance to the feminine and masculine energies within us and throughout our world, one person at a time.

The song “Thousand Years” had a potent, soul resonant feel to me from the very first time I heard it…. I felt it as a beloved timeless love song between souls, an invocation from the divine, a remembrance of the inner and outer balance of the divine feminine and divine masculine and a call from the Sacred to Awaken and embody this inner marriage, this sacred union, and this balance in our world…. It is a multilayered love song across time, both divine and human. It recalls an eternal invitation to enter into this union within ourselves first and foremost and to create that sacred marriage in our intimate relationships beyond our precious selves.

For me, I hear too…. the voices of Jesus and his beloved Mary Magdalene and all the avatar beloveds across time. With these lyrics, I hear them in turn and together speak to our hearts and souls… inviting, encouraging, reminding and loving us as we walk our paths each day and take each breath and each step.

May we recognize that we are the ones we have waited for….and embody this Way of Love.

“One Step Closer……”

~ This is an offering of love. May it touch your heart.
Blessings & Profound Love, Always, DeAnne

SACRED UNION ~ Uniting & Balancing the Divine Feminine & Divine Masculine

Zen Trio 2

On the evening of April 30th and into the early hour of May 1st 2016, a lovely group of people gathered in my home on what is the holy day of Beltane in the Celtic tradition. The timing felt significant.  The intention was to invite in the energy and awareness of the sacred union ~ the harmonious balance and union of feminine and masculine energies ~ within ourselves, in relationship and in our world.

It was an unforgettable evening of story weaving, guided meditation and simple ceremony, to invoke and honor the sacred union within ourselves and upon the planet.

This was the first collaborative event for Zen Rose Garden partners and beloveds Heather Rodriguez and David Caren and Conscious Connections NOW founder DeAnne Wolfgram. It was a significant experience for us all and for those sharing in the gathering. Personal healing shifts and notable life experiences occurred both before, during and after the gathering that were incredibly validating. The communion, vulnerable personal sharing, authenticity, heart intimacy, mutual witnessing, genuine awarenesses and ceremony shared in that small group that evening were life affirming. The ease, acceptance and presence were palpable. We undoubtedly invited the sacred union and this harmonious balance into our lives. We also invoked this on behalf of our world.

Here is the blended description of the evening’s focus co-written by Heather, David and DeAnne.

Now we know…. We are the ones that we once waited for….

Within our hearts and beneath the stars, we are invoking the Sacred Union of the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine in a beautiful balanced harmony…

For eons, the two have been out of sync in our world, from once dominant ancient goddess cultures through centuries of masculine driven religion and patriarchy, Now we arrive in our current Awakening Era where the Divine Feminine and the Divine Masculine are finding The Way to each other ~ creating a more powerful connection than anything we have yet experienced.

Our evening together acknowledges and ignites this catalyzing harmonizing synergy, individually and collectively. Come join us for this Sacred Union, energizing it within your life and throughout our world.

David and Heather will explore our shared collective reunion journey while offering personal stories of their own path to finding this balance within themselves, creating it with each other and bringing that vision to others.




These beloved partners of Zen Rose Garden will be sharing a beautiful love story of reuniting and reigniting this sacred union after so many years of sorrow, fear, and lost love. Sprinkled within their own story is a joyous tale of lost lovers reuniting after eons of travels to the furthest depths of the darkest times on a quest that finally emerges into the flames of passion and truth. The yearning of True Love sated and harmony restored. A special experiential passage will be offered to all present.

The evening promises a journey into BELOVEDNESS…..BEING part of this ancient and present day Alchemy.

May we each help anchor this balance in our world.  Blessings….

DeAnne will offer her own potent personal story as a messenger of the Sacred Union, walking in the footsteps of ancient love and awakening to the Beloved within herself and her longtime marriage. For the first time in a communion with others, she will offer both shared sacred union ceremony and energetic activation of the Beloved within.

The significance of this gathering within the energies of Beltane cannot be understated. We are recalibrating ourselves individually and invoking this much needed Union both personally and collectively. The evening will bring nourishment for ourselves and for our world. Thank you for BEING part of this ancient and present day Alchemy.

May we each help anchor this balance in our world. Blessings…..

This Moment

DeAnne.Being.1-11.Collage
DeAnne.Being.1-11-15.Collage

I awoke this morning to the soothing sounds of rain cascading down upon our Mojave Desert.  My morning self Reiki beneath the covers was especially deep, soothing and warm. Puppies nuzzled my face and we all emerged to greet this day of 1-11-15.

In Angel Number meanings, 1-1-1 has great significance. It is a message and a time to be especially attentive to our thoughts and feelings. We are encouraged to focus upon what it is that we truly want and desire to create in our lives and in the world. This morning feels like a perfect time for that deep soulful attention, reflection and creation.

I’m in the midst and mist of a serene, deeply inward morning on this calm, cleansing and rare rainy day here in our Mojave Desert. The rain drops are dancing on the top of the pool water, cascading from the roof and creating a beautiful symphony of soothing flowing music.

Loving life this morning and feeling at peace. It’s a blessed experience for this 1-11-15 day. Yes, peace IS more of what I wish to create within myself and within our world. As we each take responsibility for creating our own inner peace, the outer world responds and transforms in kind. I truly believe that.

So this morning and today, I will look upon these sweetly inspiring images that are meaningful to me and lovingly, intentionally focus upon what I wish to create. Like the steps in my home and backyard, I’ll remind myself to take one step and one breath at a time. There’s no rush, no need to over do….simply to BE and to follow the guidance of my own inner compass. Now is the only time I have. Everything in life has led me to this moment, and this moment will be the foundation of everything that is yet to come. I’ll sink deeply into “this moment” with PRESENCE marrying both my Being and Doing from this.

Blessings for peaceful moments to each of you and all~ways, always…. So Much Love. D*

KEEP SHINING

The moon last night was an extraordinary and other worldly experience. I looked up to see a magificent full ring around her in the sky. There was a feeling of being pulled in by this luminous magnificence. I’ve admired beautiful lunar sights before yet never experienced anything like what I saw and felt last night. It was almost transportive. Even my mother-in-law was overwhelmed with the energy she felt when she gazed at it.. What a cosmic encounter, from our own backyard.  I stood there for a few moments with my heart and arms wide open.

Have you had any potent celestial experiences recently?  The autumn skies seem ripe with magic to harvest, day and night.

I have read very briefly from a couple sources that these next two weeks will have us immersed in some very potent even life changing energy…on a personal and collective scale… beginning with tomorrow’s Full Moon Eclipse on October 8th.

May you feel yourSelf immersed in a genuine depth of Love beneath the luminous moon and radiant sun… We are made of that same celestial stuff. KEEP SHINING. xo

Ooh-oo child ~ Things are gonna get easier

Here’s a Musical Message for Today. ❤

This spontaneously began singing in me yesterday out of nowhere, right after I’d had my own challenging feelings of major worry arise… It is not a song I ever think of, so I immediately felt the calm of my own higher wisdom and precious unseen comforting.. ❤ It was very much like angelic music straight to my heart in that moment. May it comfort you too. D*

We Can Find a Better Way

“Come and Stand Beside Us…. We Can Find a Better Way.” 

I created this video in 2011 in honor of the 10th anniversary of 9/11.  I still vividly recall the moment that this song came on my car stereo just days after that tragic world changing event…..

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d7oeTFzHEsc&list=FLRIGlJyYgLx1tBbla80zOIA&index=12

On that day in September 2001, I was contemplating the fear we were all struggling with in the wake of this horrific event. I was in the midst of driving home from a Montessori teachers workshop and recognizing the resonance of Dr. Maria Montessori‘s visionary belief that “Hope Lies Within the Child.” All of That was on my mind and heart as John Denver’s “Rhymes and Reasons” began singing out over my car stereo. His voice of optimism gave me hope and filled my heart in that moment…. And then, I was flooded with chills as the line “Though the cities start to crumble.. And the towers fall around us” called out…. That very event had just shockingly happened in our world and John Denver wrote and sang of it in 1969!

It still sings so strongly….

May we continue learning that The Power of Love can overcome the fears in this world. Hope does lie in the children and we can come together. “Come and stand beside us. We can find a better way”

Rhymes and Reasons ~ John Denver

So you speak to me of sadness
And the coming of the winter
Fear that is within you now
It seems to never end
And the dreams that have escaped you
And the hope that youve forgotten
You tell me that you need me now
You want to be my friend

And you wonder where were going
Wheres the rhyme and wheres the reason
And its you cannot accept
It is here we must begin
To seek the wisdom of the children
And the graceful way of flowers in the wind

For the children and the flowers
Are my sisters and my brothers
Their laughter and their loveliness
Could clear a cloudy day

Like the music of the mountains
And the colours of the rainbow
Theyre a promise of the future
And a blessing for today
Though the cities start to crumble
And the towers fall around us
The sun is slowly fading
And its colder than the sea

It is written from the desert
To the mountains they shall lead us
By the hand and by the heart
They will comfort you and me
In their innocence and trusting
They will teach us to be free

For the children and the flowers
Are my sisters and my brothers
Their laughter and their loveliness
Could clear a cloudy day

And the song that I am singing
Is a prayer to non believers
Come and stand beside us
We can find a better way

Words and music by John Denver

 

A Little Sunday Morning Buzz ~ Hummingbird JOY

It is a lovely Sunday morning as I’m enjoying my solitude and freedom to be. I went into our backyard to savor the outdoor beauty before the Mojave Desert summer heat magnifies… Sitting to begin a blog post about recent angelic-like experiences of grace, I was graced by a joyful friend, our sweet resident hummingbird ‘Buzz.’

He flew over to me again and again, then perched upon the branch of my patio lemon tree just two yards away. His radiant purple head turning to and fro as he watched me and settled into his spot. I was happily looking for images to accompany the article that I ‘thought’ I was writing this morning…. And Buzz began singing out with that ultra-high pitched expression unique to these ethereal feathered beings…. He talked and sang with full joy and presence. He called my attention to him and my own beingness joined his. I was immersed in the shared peaceful, joyful, abundant moment and talked to him with gratitude and happiness. He was completely basking in life, so was I. Tears gently cascaded down my cheeks… What a big little gift!

Buzz, in his joyful hummingbird way, reminded me of so very much this morning. JOY ~ it is abSOULutely my inherent natural state of being, when I allow it to fully flow. I’m known for being effervescent, bubbly, energetic and full of big love. I truly do love sprinkling joy and opening hearts. Many of my dearest friends and my family refer to my hummingbird essence. It was precious to feel that magical communing with my totem and my loyal feathery friend today…

Buzz has been a joyful constant presence around our home for years, coming right up to each of us at various times and even flying into our house once. (His hummingbird family members have flown right through the door and into our home at times too.) Buzz is definitely part of our family and enjoys making his presence known around the homestead.

He had my mother–in-law rolling with laughter on two different memorable occasions. One Christmas morning, I went to the back of our property to welcome her down to open gifts. Walking toward her I held an open water bottle, Buzz zoomed by me suddenly right next to my head. Startled, I threw my hands up in the air… Up went the water.. Down went the water… and splashed all over me. I got baptized by a joyful hummingbird on Christmas morning. My husband’s mom had wished for a video recording of it. She couldn’t stop laughing. After the momentary shock, I was laughing uncontrollably too. It was symbolic, hilarious and unforgettable. She commented that Buzz came so fast and so close that she thought he was going to get me right in the head… That too was significant at the time..

The second occasion where Buzz made a big impression was weeks ago in late spring. My husband was out in the backyard enjoying a morning coffee chat with his mom. Buzz came over as he often does to drink out of the feeder there on the table inches from her. On his way, he paused over my hubby’s coffee cup and relieved himself. Belly laughs ensued as my guy insisted he couldn’t believe the hummingbird had just taken a dump in his coffee… His mom was gaffawing… She couldn’t wait to tell me about it and laughed uproariously all over again when she did…

Yep, JOY…. sassiness….sprite-like effervescence, persistence, friendliness, family and far more… that is our Buzz…. and that is me. I so appreciate the way our animal companions come to us with their lessons of nature and our own nature… Now mind you, I don’t plan to poo in my hubby’s coffee anytime soon, but I will tell you that Buzz and I both are all about reminding ourselves and others to have fun, be light, look for the joy, bring laughter, savor the delicious beauty and radiate your bright colorful authentic selves.

I love that kind of BuZzzzzzzzz…..
Brilliant Buzz

SHE IS

SHE

The Divine Feminine ONE is gentle yet fiercely loving… She is having HER way with us and through us.

She comes in many forms through wise, wondrous and wild ways…

SHE IS arising in our world through the force of love, awakening within male and female alike, balancing us from within, cleansing wounds, raising our truth to the surface, healing old outmoded patterns, eradicating distortions, insisting upon transparency, harmonizing the divine masculine and sacred feminine within, evoking a nurturing for self, others and the environment, inspiring community, bringing collaboration, teaching unity, empowering feminine values, clearing ego, enhancing our natural gifts, embracing our True Selves, embodying Spirit, imbuing Soul wisdom and transforming the world through the power of Love.

Keep Opening to Her. She gently fiercely wants to Love You. And so it IS.

SHE is born to flow

“She is born to flow. She’s a river.
Crystalline, clear, joyous, nourishing, quenching, flowing water is her natural state.”

This entire  Joyous Woman post by Sukhvinder Sircar truly spoke to me and for me today…. I am a very watery woman, and this message was pure truth. I feel the flow…..
Thank you once again Sukhvinder. You write the pulse of our hearts so often. xo

Read on…. As with all of her writings, Sukhvinder Sircar gives expression to our female souls and the divine feminine harmonizing upon our planet, through every woman.
