Blue Moon July 31, 2015

blue-moon-and-wolf HOWLThe Blue Moon occurs on Friday, 31 July 2015, 06:42 (second Full Moon in single calendar month).  Now is the time to set your intentions towards what you desire. The perfect time to plant whatever it is that you want to reap

It is a moon shrouded in mystery, magic and folklore, perhaps because it only appears once every 2.7 years. The very term “blue moon” is over 400 years old when Shakespeare first wrote the words “blue moon” to mean rare or absurd. The rarity of a full moon appearing twice in one month, or a third full moon appearing in an astronomical season with four full moons versus the normal three, must have inspired the great playwright to coin the term.

The term ‘once in a blue Moon’ means that that something is very rare. But just how rare, depends on your definition.

In astronomy, a Blue Moon is a full Moon, which doesn’t quite fit in with the months in our calendar. If the moon actually looks blue, it’s caused by a rare type of dust in the atmosphere. However, there are two completely different ways of calculating which full Moon is a Blue Moon.

Blue Moon: The Full Explanation

Two definitions

Blue Moon = The third full Moon in an astronomical season with 4 full Moons (versus the normal 3)

Blue Moon = The second full Moon in a month with two full Moons.

In modern day terminology, the name Blue Moon accounts for times when there are more full moons than is ordinary.

It is believed the name “blue” was used to replace the no-longer-understood belewe “to betray”. It would have been a “betrayer moon” because in normal years the third full moon meant the beginning of spring whereas a blue moon would have meant another month of fasting.

In some cultures, the blue moon was considered the trickster moon. The faker, not the real full moon, but a mysterious doppelganger. In other cultures the blue moon was considered fortunate, something to celebrate, and a perfect time to start a long-term goal or make plans for the future.

Occasionally you may see a moon that is colored blue. This is because of atmospheric conditions and has nothing to do with a “Blue Moon.

Among the metaphysical or spiritual community a blue moon is a powerful moon. This is usually prime time for rituals ceremonies and protection. It’s also a good time to perform ceremonies to attract a new job, healings, love, legal undertakings, money and dreams. For those of you wanting to do something special for the Blue Moon I recommend you try the Burning Bowl Ceremony. See The Video Below.

HEIGHTENED EMOTIONS: Right now the Moon is at its closest approach to Earth all Month. Can you feel it? Have you noticed you are picking on little things for no good reason, having very random thoughts or other people seem to be having a go at you? Be aware that we are being influenced by the cosmic weather. The SUN has also fired off M Class flares in the past 24 hours, which will hopefully miss Earth’s field in a couple of days.

Whenever the surface of the SUN is flaring our own inner environment’s rise in awareness as we slough of the old ways in favor of the new and positive for our life. So if you are a little agitated right now, let it pass without lashing out at someone or something you will later feel sadness over. Stay in your own space over the next 24 hours and contemplate the bigger picture of your life.

So if you are looking to improve your luck or to finish a long-term goal, don’t worry about the ancient superstitions! Instead, focus on this full moon as a lucky one and the beginning of a great new journey for yourself.

A blue moon is rare and if you are finding yourself at a crossroads in life, now would be the perfect time to get spiritual advice to help you on your path. Visit my website to find out more about my special services.

Numerology – Messages in the Numbers

How To Interpret Your Numerology Soul

Numerology is a metaphysical science focused around the vibrations and meanings of numbers. Primarily used for understanding the deeper mechanisms of our psyches and the psyches of others, numerology is also thought to be a communication mechanism through which divine entities from higher realms express ideas to Earth-bound individuals. If you’ve ever noticed numerical patterns in your life, consider the messages behind these numbers and what they’re trying to tell you.

Repeating Number Patterns

The study of numerology is an in-depth pursuit. A good place to start is by understanding the secret meanings of repeating numbers. For example, do you keep seeing numbers like 11:11 or 333 in your daily life? Don’t just chalk it up to coincidence — repeating number patterns can be messages from a higher realm that are trying to tell you something important. For example:

111 or 1111: If you notice the number 1 repeating itself in your life, this is a sign to examine your life and your surroundings, and define what it is you really want in life. In addition, this number pattern can be a sign that you’re on the right track with your current life path. Many numerology experts believe 11:11 is a message from the angels, assuring you they are always nearby.

222 or 2222: The repeating number 2 denotes relationships. If you see this number popping up in your life, examine your current relationships to see if there are areas which need improvement. This number also symbolizes intuition and your authentic self.

333 or 3333: When you notice the repeating number 3, it’s a sign that you are properly aligned in body, mind and soul. Some practitioners believe the number 3 is a direct message from your guardian angels and guides, telling you not to fear because they are surrounding you.

444 or 4444: The repeating number 4 is all about family and home, so when you see this number pattern take some time to examine your home life and family dynamics. Are there ways you can improve the harmony and balance in your home? The number 4 asks you to consider this idea.

555 or 5555: Change is coming when you see the repeating number 5. This is also the number of movement, so if you’ve been feeling stagnant, consider things you can do to refresh and invigorate your life. This number may also be telling you to unblock the flow of your chi, which can be done through chakra cleansing and meditation among other practices.

Numerology Can Give You Direction On Your Life Path!

What I find most useful with numerology is the information it can give about your life path.  Your Life Path (sometimes called Destiny) is derived from your birth date. Your Life path is the road you are traveling. It reveals the opportunities and challenges you will face in life. Your Life Path number is the single most important information available in your Personality Chart! Often when I do a life path chart for people who they are quite amazed at how much information it reveals about them. The first time I had a numerology report done for me, 34 years ago, I was told that I was a master number. At that time in my life I couldn’t imagine me being able to help anyone on their spiritual path and yet that is what I do for people. When you get such a chart done for you, you may disagree with some of the things it says at the time, but you will see it unfold in your life.

Numerology vs. Astrology

Although numerology and astrology both use numbers for analytical purposes, there are some distinct differences between these two metaphysical sciences. For example, numerology is not only focused on birth dates, but also the numerical interpretation of names. Combining numerology with astrology and other spiritual tools can be a powerful strategy when it comes to achieving a better understanding of oneself, the other creatures of Earth, and the energy that flows throughout the whole of the Universe.

Studying Numerology at Home

You don’t have to attend any special classes to learn numerology — there are a wealth of books available that can teach you the inner workings of this fascinating pursuit. A good way to begin exploring numerology is to keep a journal where you record the number patterns that are appearing in your everyday life. Once you learn the connotations of different numbers, you’ll be able to interpret what they mean for you and your own personal relationships. A deeper understanding of the hidden meanings of numbers can help you achieve balance and harmony in body, mind and spirit.

Are You Going Through Trials In Your Life? ‏

Many light workers on the planet at this timeIf you are experiencing trials and tribulations in your life, congratulations, you are doing things right.  You are learning lessons that otherwise you would not understand.

The trials and tribulations of Lightworkers

If you are experiencing trials and tribulations in your life, congratulations, you are doing things right.  You are learning lessons that otherwise you would not understand.  I find that many light workers, spiritually gifted people, on the planet at this time, seem to experience obstacles, challenges, and health issues in their lives. In so doing, we learn compassion and empathy through these trials.  This also helps us have transcendence through the undertaking of our own healing journey, which is ever evolving, as is our consciousness.

To be a true lightworker you often have to experience many of the hardships of life so that you have true understanding of what another person is going through.  This makes you wiser and stronger and able to light the way for others on their path.  Whenever you look at anyone who has been a strong figure of light you’ll see that they have went through great trials and tribulations.

I believe that most people who are spiritually gifted, such as light workers, suffer from physical problems tend to be more in spirit, as this is what sustains them.  So if you encounter a spiritual person who has chronic illnesses do not think that they cannot help you.  Their gifts come from a higher source.

I find that what I have gone through has been for my spiritual growth.  I never would have known who I really was If everything would have gone smoothly in my life.  The challenges that I face would flatten most people and I keep going.  That is my message to all of you spiritual workers who like me suffer from chronic illness.  Do not feel you are not helping others because you are – far more than you know.  Keep going my friends.

The depth of your conviction about the life’s work you are called to fulfill enlarges the borders of what is possible for you to accomplish, despite whatever limitations you are going through at this time.

So if you are experiencing challenges in your life do not feel that you are off your chosen path.  Realize this is a growing experience, even if other people do not get it.  Remain strong in your mission in life. Do not allow yourself to grow weary, because the rewards are coming.  Sometimes quickly and sometimes at a later date.  The true reward comes when we pass on and are shown all the people whose lives we have touched.

Let Your Light Shine!

Many blessings,
Cherokee Billie

What Is Freedom?

Freedom forthWith the celebration of Independence Day people often talk about freedom. Freedom is often thought of in terms of your country, democracy, etc. But is that really freedom?

Freedom can represent something different to each person.

Let me give some examples:

  • A person in prison would consider freedom being outside prison walls.
  • A person living in a dictatorship longs to live in a country that is democratic.
  • A homeless person might consider freedom having a roof over their head.
  • A sick person would consider freedom not having an illness.
  • A person who is financially broke might consider freedom having money to pay their bills.
  • A person in an abusive marriage would consider freedom being divorced.

Every person looks at freedom differently. True freedom comes from within you. I know you have heard this before, but it is true. There are people who are in prisons that still keep that freedom inside of their soul.

I always find the movie the “Shawshank Redemption” to be a good example of how a person holds onto hope and freedom inside of their soul despite the outward realities. The character Andy Dufresne is imprisoned for twenty years, yet inside of himself he holds on to hope of being a free man. He does not express this to anyone, but deep inside of him he makes a resolution that he will obtain freedom. It takes time and eventually he does become a free man once again.

There are people that are bedridden that still have freedom inside their spirit despite the fact that they cannot function their physical body. As a bedridden person I have a continual battle inside of myself to maintain the spirit of a free person. Sure, there are times that I feel totally despondent about my situation, but I hold on with everything I have. That freedom is within me and there will always be an answer if I just hold on long enough. Does that mean that I’m going to be miraculously healed? Not necessarily. It means that I must find a way to not let my circumstances defeat my soul.

Then there are the opposite, people who believe they are free who really are living like zombies following the crowd and not thinking for themselves. To me they are more imprisoned then anyone else. They are being controlled by the media, the Internet, television, movies, families, and even jobs. They do not realize that they are not free inside of themselves. They have to feel an attachment to something or else they feel completely lost. More and more I see people becoming zombies as technology advances. They have no clue how to think for themselves without some influence.

People often compromise their personal freedom for the sake of having peace in a situation. It does not mean you have to argue with someone, but do you really have to go along with someone else’s program? Not if it goes against your soul. Of course there are situations where it’s best to keep silent. Nowadays too many people are keeping silent when they should be speaking up for what they feel or believe inside themselves.

How do you obtain personal freedom? That takes deep introspection and examining all parts of you, the good, the bad, the dark, and the light. All of these elements we have within us and if we do not expose our internal self to all parts of who we are we really never know who or what we are.

So the first step to personal freedom is giving up everything you have been taught or thought and spending time examining your life completely. This can often be hard because sometimes you will become more depressed at the parts of you that you feel you cannot change. Change can come when you develop the attitude that you want a personal revolution.

The only real change always comes from within. External forces cannot change your internal self. Be patient as it does take time and like a snake you have to shed the old skin to become a new person. Peeling off the layers of yourself takes time and sometimes you may want to put some of the old layers back on as they are more comfortable. Sometimes a few of those layers need to be put back on after you have discarded the negative and counter-productive layers. This is where you have to really be willing to fight the battle within to obtain personal freedom.

So are you willing and ready to become free?

No matter what your circumstances it is within you to be a free independent thinker and person. Many of the great people throughout history, who made a difference in this world, were those who chose personal freedom. They are the ones who are written about in history books and remembered by many. The person who does not become free inside is often not remembered by many because they were just like everyone else.

We can become a diamond that sheds light on the world if we are willing to step out and be free. If you can endure the pressure it takes to be that diamond, you will shine.

That is true independence!

“The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.” ~ Jim Morrison

44 Years Since Jim Morrison Passed

jim-reading-copia“I see myself as a huge fiery comet, a shooting star. Everyone stops, points up and gasps, “Oh look at that!” Then- whoosh, and I’m gone…and they’ll never see anything like it ever again… and they won’t be able to forget me- ever.” Jim Morrison

Jim Morrison certainly had a clear vision of his life. He was born December 08, 1943, and passed away July 03, 1971. For those who may not know he was a singer, songwriter, philosopher, and poet. He is most famous for his work with the musical group The Doors. I have traveled the world, and, no matter what language, if I sing a few verses of “Light My Fire”, everyone knows that song, and they always smile.

He did not play any musical instruments, but he heard all of his songs in his head. Then he would hum the tune to the other musicians in The Doors, and they would compose what he heard in his head.

At the young age of 21, Jim Morrison and Ray Manzarek formed the group The Doors. Within one year they had a recording contract and shot to the top of the rock and roll world with the song “Light My Fire” in the summer of 1967. From there everything they recorded was always on top of the rock and roll charts.

Jim never sought fame and always considered himself first and foremost a poet. As the money came pouring in, the rest of the group started buying fancy cars and houses. Jim did not care about material possessions. He lived very simply. All he usually had with him was his clothes and books. He was an avid reader and never was without a book in his hand. He lived in $10.00 a night motels. He tried to have a car, but every car he ever had he ended up wrecking. He finally gave up on cars.

He wrote four poetry books and paid to have them published. The thing he was most proud of was his books.

Jim was the first rock star to ever be arrested on stage during a performance. This happened December 9, 1967 in New Haven, Connecticut. He was booked on charges of indecency, public obscenity, disturbing the peace and resisting arrest. Before the concert Jim was backstage making out with a girl. A police officer spotted them and said they had to leave. Jim told the officer he was in the band. The cop got pushy with Jim. Jim tried to push him away and then the cop maced him. .

Jim still went on stage and performed the concert. During the last song Jim started to tell the crowd about what happened backstage. The cops shut the music down and came directly onstage to arrest him. From that time onward the police were always looking for an excuse to come after Jim.

Unfortunately his fame could not be contained and it took over his life. He enjoyed many of the perks, but did not like losing his privacy, and found ways to get lost in the crowd. He was an alcoholic and drank mass amounts of whiskey a day. No one could control him, and things went downhill when he was accused of exposing his penis in front of an audience at a rock concert in Miami Florida. He was arrested and faced Federal prison time for lewd lascivious behavior, two misdemeanors for public profanity, two for public exposure and one for public drunkenness. No one could prove that he did such a thing, and, considering how many photographs were being taken nonstop at the concert, it is highly unlikely that it happened because there is no proof.

Because he was so famous and considered a hippie, the courts were going to let him have it full on. For that reason he decided to take a break from everything and go to Paris to see if he could lose his identity. The pressure of facing prison time was more than he could handle. He found no matter where he went he was known. It must have seemed like there was no escaping for him.

The official cause of his death in Paris is from a heart attack. No one knows for sure, but the bottom line is he did die at a young age having changed the face of rock and roll. He has never been forgotten. In fact his fame has grown, and he is considered a rock legend. His estate brings in millions of dollars a year. Every year young people discover the work of Jim Morrison and become fans. Just like he said no one would ever forget him and that was very prophetic.

I saw The Doors perform at the Los Angeles Forum in 1968 at the height of their fame. I had always liked their music, but I was not a big fan of Jim Morrison. At this particular concert he set on the edge of the stage and read poetry for 45 minutes. I was sitting in the floor section right in front of the stage and people kept lighting sparklers and matches and sending them flying at the stage screaming, “Sing Light My Fire.” I had to keep covering my head to keep from getting burned. Finally the group did play Light My Fire and afterwards left the stage. Having lived in Los Angeles and seen every major group like the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones, and many more, I considered it the worst concert I had ever seen.

I continued to buy every album The Doors made. The songs were powerful, and I really enjoyed their music. I knew I would never waste my time going to see another one of their concerts.

I was in Santa Monica, which is right next to Venice California and one of Jim’s favorite cities, when I heard that he had died. It was sunset, and, as I watched the sun go down at the ocean, I kept thinking about what a terrible waste and it had only been a few months since Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin had died at the age of 27. Ironically, Jim died on the same date as Brian Jones, of The Rolling Stones, who had died in 1969. Jim wrote a poem for Brian Jones right after his death called, “Thinking of Brian Jones While Sitting in Los Angeles.”

Now comes an unusual part to my memories of Jim Morrison. In 1984 I was taking a class in Transpersonal Psychology and we were given an assignment to write about two parts of ourselves and have them communicate back and forth. I saw myself as two different things first as a deer and the other as Jim Morrison. As I was doing this dialogue between the deer and Jim, it became clear that he was there to teach me how to be an individual and face life like a rebel. I had lost my identity in a bad marriage and felt like a deer that at any moment was going to be shot down. This was the reason to learn how to be a rebel.  It was certainly fascinating because I had not thought of Jim Morrison other than when I heard his music.

I did not have any albums any more, but, after writing this story, I kept hearing over and over in my head the song “Waiting for the Sun.” Finally I had to go out and buy the cassette, and, as I listened to this song, I started hearing Jim Morrison talk to me. This was his way of letting me know that he was in my life as one of my spirit guides. My first thought when I realized this was – why wasn’t it John Lennon or Jimi Hendrix who I really liked.  Why did it have to be wild and crazy Jim Morrison?

I am sure that many people are thinking as they read this that I am crazy. No, I knew about spirit guides, but never gave it much attention. From that point on I started paying attention and have learned a great deal, and it has not always been easy, but I am grateful to have this guide. Many people have felt a connection to Jim Morrison outside of just being a fan, and I know that he is working in spirit to help many people.

Jim Morrison lived his life as a free spirit and chose not to be tied down to the conventions of the day. He was a loner and his idea of what a good place to go to relax was a topless bar next to the office of The Doors or his favorite hole in the wall Mexican restaurant in Venice California. He never had an entourage nor did he have security. He walked the streets of Venice and Hollywood freely. He proved you could be a superstar and still live in whatever way you wanted.

His being free is what disturbed so many people including the law and the government. The powers that be do not like when someone shows them what true freedom is.

I cannot imagine any current musical artist choosing this type of life. This is what sets Jim Morrison apart from so many of the others. It is sad that the music world today is nothing more than just commercialism. I am thankful that I was around in the 60’s to see some of the greatest creative artists express themselves freely. It was a wonderful time to be alive.

I am glad Jim Morrison shared his talent with the world. He will never be forgotten.

I will leave you with this final thought from Jim Morrison.

“I like people who shake other people up and make them feel uncomfortable.”

Thank you Jim for all you left us,

My Favorite Song by The Doors

My Father’s 97Th Birthday

Me , My Mother and Father in 1967

Me , My Mother, and Father in 1967

I wrote a tribute on Father’s Day to my father, well June 26 is his birthday. This year he would have been 97 years old. I cannot begin to imagine him at that age. The last fifteen years of his life was hard on him as he suffered from Parkinson’s disease. I watched him go down bit by bit and it was rough as he had always been such a strong, intelligent, and powerful man.

At the age of 76 he could not do anything for himself anymore.  Thanksgiving weekend 1994 he ended up in the hospital and collapsed into a coma within hours.  This is where my biggest spiritual learning came into place.

He was comatose and I knew that he had a great fear of dying. What I did was put myself in a hypnotic state and I projected myself to his hospital room and there I took his spirit and we traveled to the other side (the fifth dimension). I had never done this before in my life, but I was desperate for him to be able to pass and not be kept alive on machines

I figured my mother would be the first one to greet him as she passed away several years before. Surprisingly the person that greeted my father on the other side was his army sergeant who had been killed in World War Two. My father was so happy to see him again. I waited at the entrance and my father went and visited so many people that he loved and loved him. I could hear him and the others laughing and talking.  When he was finished he came to me and we transported back into his hospital room and he went back into his body.  The next day he died. I knew that he died without fear.

The following morning as I awoke my father was screaming into my right ear everything he wanted me to know. I woke up saying, “Dad, you’re hurting my ear. Stop talking so loud.” I then did my best to remember exactly what he had been saying. It amazed me. I had never had such a spiritual connection in my life. Over the next few days he appeared to me, each time with a message. Throughout the years he has continued to communicate and on rare occasions I have been able to see him. It’s absolutely fascinating. He’s definitely my main Spirit Guide.

So not only did my father teach me so much when he was living, but he taught me a great deal after he died.  So I attribute my spiritual abilities as being inherited from him.

I know that I was blessed to have such a wonderful man as my father in my life.  So I just want to say “Thank you Daddy for everything. I know you will be waiting for me when I cross over. I love you.”

Your daughter,
Cherokee Billie
