(The Circle opens with the sounds of the Tibetan Bowls and the Blessings Chimes)

Allow the Sound Vibrations to soar up into the Heavens, lifting you into your Soul Dimension, lighting the deepest recesses of your Heart with a Melody of Light, and a Melody of Sound. 

Greetings Dear Hearts, I am Tarak, Sound Master of Arcturus, I come tonight with your beloved friend The Sound Master Margot to share the Love and the Light of this Circle, and to feel the embrace of your Hearts.  We are so deeply honoured to be within this Circle to feel the Love that radiates forth across the Earth.

Dear Hearts, for many of your Earth years you have …

worked powerfully with the special energies of the Equinox, and through those special energies you have connected your Hearts and your Souls to the Consciousness of the Oceans of your Planet – and those within the Oceans of the Planet that have been contributing to the Ascension of the Earth and all upon it.

It has therefore been decided that there will be a special inflow of ‘Sound Vibrational Frequencies’ from the Library of Arcturus at the time of the upcoming Equinox, and we are here tonight to invite you, and through you to invite all the SOUNDERS of the Earth to come together on the day of the Equinox to open your Hearts and embrace a New Vibration of Sound that infuses the whole of the Earth Planet – but particularly the Oceans of your Planet. For this Ray of Sound is designed specifically to activate the SOUNDERS OF THE OCEANS, the Whales and the Dolphins, to open a Gateway of their Souls, to lift their songs into a New Vibrational Frequency that will stabilize the Earth in a higher frequency again from what it is now.

You see Dear Hearts, as well you know, Sound is what creates change, Vibrational Frequencies create change, and all the work that you have done together with the Whales and the Dolphins over many of your Earth years are now coming to a fulfilment. 

Through the work that you have done with the Song Lines of the Earth, you have opened Gateways to your own Souls.  It is now time to open the gateways to the Soul of the Whales and the Dolphins, that they too may lift their Vibrational Frequencies, and through their Songs communicate to all the creatures of the Ocean the New Earth Frequencies, that ALL may be uplifted and ALL may be awakened within the Oceans of the world.

Although primarily this Wave of Sound Frequencies are destined for the Whales and the Dolphins, because you are now in a Dimension of Oneness, you too will be impacted by these New Sound Frequencies.

We therefore invite you to gather, to open your Hearts, to be beside the oceans, and as you feel the flow of Sound Frequencies resonating deep within your Hearts, we ask you to Sound those Vibrations powerfully to the Oceans of the Earth – speaking of your commitment to the Oneness of all that is.

Beloved Margot and myself have journeyed from Arcturus once more to work with you through the Sound Temple at Willow Springs, but on that day, which this one tells me is the 22nd of September, we will be standing alongside each and every one of you as you communicate your Love, your commitment with the Whales and the Dolphins. And when you have ‘Sounded your Sound’, when you have delivered your Love, we ask that you go within in silence and stillness, and FEEL the response from the Whales and the Dolphins.

It is a time of great celebration for them, and you are a part of that celebration. 

Their Awakening is your Awakening. 

Their Upliftment is your Upliftment.

The Song Lines of the Earth will carry the New Songs of the Whales and the Dolphins, and will vibrate with the new sense of Joyfulness, of Oneness.  A vibration of Divine Love and Peace will flow through the Oceans of the world, and will resonate throughout the Earth itself.

We will not ask you to gather together at the time that you used to gather together at the Equinox, instead we ask you to gather together at the midpoint of your day, and work powerfully with the energies of the Equinox, and BECOME THE ONENESS.

Until that time, until that day, we will continue to work quietly with you and through you from the Sound Temple at Willow Springs.

We Bless you, we Love you, we Thank you.

(Note: ‘Midpoint of your day’ will be noon on 22nd September , wherever you are in the world.

Willow Springs is a Station in the Flinders Ranges of South Australia. )

( The circle opens with the sounds of the Tibetan Bowls and the Drum)

Allow the sounds of the bowls and the drum to reverberate deep within your Hearts, drawing forth the energies of Divine Love that are at the essence of your Heart, and allow those energies of Divine Love to flow through every aspect of your Being, filling your physical body, your energy body, your emotional body and your spiritual body with the pure energies of Divine Love.

And as you fill yourself with the energies of Divine Love, allow those energies to flow freely from you, to embrace …

all those within the Circle, to join together with the Divine Love of everyone within the Circle, to create a powerful vibration of Divine Love in the Oneness of all that is, and through your Hearts focus that Oneness energy of Divine Love upon the Earth Planet itself, surrounding it, permeating it, becoming one with the Earth Planet, that ALL may be the vibration of Divine Love.

Greetings Dear Hearts, I am Hilarion.  I thank you for connecting your Love with the whole of the Earth Planet, allowing yourselves to become ‘consciously’ a part of the Oneness of all that is, for it is together in this Oneness that you will begin to create the Earth of the future, an Earth that is not separate and divided, an Earth which lives and breathes in Unity and Oneness, where no individual Being is perceived as less than another, where all are accepted for the Light and the Love they bring to the whole. 

The Light of each individual Being is important to the whole, is valued BY the whole, and valuable TO the whole.  Your Heart does not sit in judgement of others, it sits in Oneness with others, so in the new Earth frequency it is important to focus on your Heart, and to embrace ALL AS ONE.

We recognise that there is still difficulty for Humanity to let go of the judgements of the mind, and to fully embrace the Oneness of the Heart, but this will change progressively as time moves on, so be strong, Dear Hearts, be balanced each day within your Heart and make your choices in life from the Love within your Heart, and you will find the world around you will become more peaceful, more joyful.

It is time for ALL the ‘way showers’ to come together within the energy of Divine Love, and to reach out to all those who need more Light and more Love and more understanding in their lives, and share with them the wisdom within your Hearts, the wisdom of Unity, the wisdom of Oneness.

Each moment, each day, when you first awaken, see the Earth Planet in your mind’s eye as a baby being bathed by the Light of Love within your Hearts, and gift that baby – your new Earth – the full power of the Divine Love that you possess, knowing that as you do this you will be allowing the Earth Planet to grow into its own Oneness, maturing, becoming a source of Divine Love within itself.

Dear Hearts, the future of the Earth is yours to create, do so from the Love in your Hearts.

James Arthur Ray was released from prison after 3 people died in a sweat lodge during one of his programs.

I felt it was important to delve into the topic a bit more:

I was invited to a sweat lodge years ago by a dear friend. I truly didn’t “get” what I was about to experience. It was wild and extremely physically difficult. Later at a Stuart Wilde’s 8-day Warriors in the Mist event, I experienced another one. They were held at 4 a.m. and then you were taken up on a mountain for a vision quest. It was a powerful experience for me and the vision has shaped my life for a long time.

Then I married a shaman – at least people called him a shaman and came to see him if they felt they needed a shaman. I don’t think he ever called himself that. We had sweat lodges at our home and people from Europe and all over the world showed up on my doorstep to do Lodge with my husband, to connect with me, and the land in New Mexico.

I never did the lodges. I held space, facilitated sharing and conversation with participants after the lodge was over, even developed a product that helps people recover afterwards.

I wrote several articles talking about how to make the decision about participating or not participating. The shamanic path – with sweat lodges, vision quests, sun dances, etc. – are very physically intensive and demanding. It is a path, like all paths, that one is “called” to. Unless a person feels “called” to do a sweat lodge, they have no business being in one. It is not something to do because it seems interesting. It is something you know you are to do.

We had several Native Americans who came from various tribe and pueblo cultures. They all felt my former husband “poured a good lodge” and they each had a powerful personal experience while attending. We had a native guy that was very ill, practically on his death bed, who was brought down from Colorado who came specifically to “make his peace” before transitioning. He participated in the first 2 rounds of the lodge and sat in the house talking to me for the remaining 2. He felt very good for lifting his prayers in lodge that day.

I, being pisces, can leave my body and vision with no effort whatsoever. I don’t need drugs, or sweat lodges, or any of the other things people use to enter altered states – with the goal of receiving higher wisdom. I simply meditate, or listen to particular pieces of music, or sit by water. Heck, I can take a shower and be flooded with divine inspiration. But I am a long term meditator and I’ve been shown ways of doing things that are significantly more gentle, nurturing, and heart opening than what I consider to be the more masculine way – the harder, shamanic way.

That doesn’t mean its a bad path. Medicine wheels are amazing things. Being connected to nature, communing with guides or totems, honoring the ancestors and keepers of the land are all very important pieces of any spiritual path.  The other, more difficult, aspects of the path are perfect for those who are called to them and should be left alone by those who are not.

Sweat lodges are not for the faint of heart, the physically unhealthy, or anyone that is not “called” to that path. For those who are, powerful things can happen.

As with all things, go in with eyes wide open, fully aware and prepared for what you are about to experience.

In my book, Peering Through the Veil, I talk more about numerous forms of prayer and meditation, including sweat lodge.

Have a deLightful day,

Living outside the box is a very revolutionary idea and not an easy one to accomplish. Its something I’ve found myself working on a lot lately.


What do I mean when I say living outside the box?

I mean looking at what I perceive as my reality and taking off the box that I’ve placed around it so that it can be in its truth, not my perception of what truth is. Or it can transform into the reality I want to have versus the reality I currently perceive and perhaps don’t necessarily like all parts of. Wow, sounds a little out there.

I’m so excited to share this information with you . . .

Years ago I left the corporate world to head off into the great unknown by moving to the San Juan Islands and co-founding a non-profit for dolphins and whales. Lolita, the captive orca at Seaquarium Miami, was my inspiration for such a move.  I was deeply affected by her story and it was definitely time for a major life change.

My partner in this cause was putting together a compilation CD that involved many well-known musical artists each contributing a song. Olivia Newton John was even considering a contribution.

I felt it was a noble endeavor – take a captive orca and retrain her to catch fish on her own and prepare her to be set free back into her wild pod in the Northwest.

We were not the only non-profit working to free Lolita. The Governor of Washington State even put together a symposium inviting all the dignitaries and non-profits working to free Lolita to join together to create a game plan for her release.  It was an honor to be part of that.

The problem was, and still is, that Seaquarium Miami makes money with the animal. So, regardless of the number of people involved, the number of picketers that walked with signs in front of the show, the number of articles, news programs, celebrity videos, and everything else, she remains captive.  She was taken from her family in 1970.

I just found a petition on change.org where you can sign to encourage them to let her retire. http://www.change.org/petitions/arthur-hertz-retire-lolita-the-killer-whale. Also it was recently announced that the federal government has agreed to reconsider a petition to free Lolita. You can read more about that here: http://orcanetwork.org/news/news.html

If you have read my eBook, Dancing with Dolphins, then you know Lolita’s story.

The woman I co-founded the non-profit with died recently. Even though the non-profit we started dissolved years ago, the cause has continued to burn within my heart and was recently fanned into a giant flame.

Roberta Quist Goodman is an amazing dolphin swim guide with more knowledge about dolphins in captivity and in the wild than practically anyone else on the planet. She and I have been good friends for many years. Recently she decided it was time to start a non-profit for dolphins.

The mission is to “retrain to wild” dolphins that have been captured and held illegally, as well as to educate the public about dolphins and whales. Unlike the situation with Lolita, there are captive dolphins in other countries that are being held illegally and in tanks that are being closed down. They need to be retrained to wild. A couple of dolphins were just recently successfully retrained and released.

When I went to visit Lolita at Seaquarium Miami years ago, I promised her that I would be an ambassador for the dolphins and whales. I have been repeatedly reminded about this promise for the past couple of years. It is definitely time to step into that role once again. According to Lilo Pelekai of Lilo and Stitch “Ohana means family. Family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten.” I am dedicated to not forgetting about all of those in captivity.

I was recently shown a vision of a dolphin in a small tank and how that image is the perfect metaphor for the work I do. Humans are captive – literally living in a restrictive prison – by their limiting beliefs, fears, judgments, self-doubts, and shoulds that they place on themselves and others. I am here to help them find freedom to have, do, and become their true potential.

I am so excited to once again be sharing my love of dolphins and whales with the world and in letting people know about the retrain to wild program Roberta is putting together.

Have a deLightful day,

Fall Equinox is a special time of year when we celebrate the harvest of all our work through the active season of summer. The seeds planted in the spring – whether actual or metaphorical – are cared for and nurtured all summer long. Then in the fall, we have the opportunity to reap what we have sown.

It is a time of thanksgiving, of sharing our bounty with friends and family.

On the Equinox, we have equal amounts of day and night. It is a balance point. From then until Winter Solstice, we have shorter days and longer nights.

David J. Adams and I celebrate each Equinox with the Golden Water Dolphin Meditation for Planetary Healing and the Global Marine Meditation. People all over the globe join us at 8 p.m. wherever they are.

I am in the United States in the Northern Hemisphere and David is in Australia in the Southern Hemisphere. We are celebrating the north and south regions of the earth, the equality of day and night, the yin and yang of the masculine and feminine, the Spring Equinox in the south and the Fall Equinox in the north. Each of these things are about balance within the earth and within ourselves.

We ask you to join us as we send healing love and light to the dolphins, whales, and waterways of the world. http://bit.ly/DolphinMeditation

You just never know what to expect from people by Takara

The following link was posted on one of my friend’s walls on Facebook.


It’s a truly fascinating article about a completely unexpected turn of events. Great reading.

It reminded me of an article I wrote called “The Lesson of the Wild Boar” in Issue 110 of my eNewsletter, Here’s to Your Magnificence. Read it to discover people’s greatest fears and desires. It will help you understand people a little bit better. The more you understand other people, the easier it is to communicate with them.

Homeschooled kids are amazing!

One of my facebook friends just posted this link.

Cab-Schooled Student Earned Ticket To Harvard

You can read about, and listen to the story, here:


You go girl!

Yes, as a homeschool mom, I am a bit biased. Some pretty impressive people were homeschooled including Albert Einstein, the Wright Brothers, George Washington, Thomas Edison, and many others. There’s a pretty good list at this link: http://www.homeschoolacademy.com/famoushomeschoolers.htm

The truth is, all kids are fabulous and my dearest hope and prayer is that they all grow up in the best environment possible to help them shine and become all that they can be. For some that is homeschooling. For others its public or private school. May they each be blessed with exactly what they need to succeed.

Want to know more about homeschooling, visit my site to learn more about what it is, the various forms it takes – including riding in a big rig – and if the choice might be right for you and your family. http://www.homeschoolsantafe.com.

Have a great day,
