In Between Shift Points

Written by Sherrie Locke on 9 Toj, September 2014.

Don’t let weird or unpredictable things get to you!

This is a time of getting real, not in the eyes of others, but in your own life.

Just getting yourself going can be challenging. By week’s end, things will tend to lighten up and you will see how to move forward. The only thing holding you back is your perception, your thinking: perceived things. This is a time to further recognize and clear these self-impediments. The theme continues…. let go.

Get rid of things. Give them away or find a way to sell them. If you haven’t worn something in a year or two and it is not something “special’ or vintage, give it away or donate it.

You feel like you need to push, but push what? Yourself? No. The Universe? No. If you must push something, push the limits of your thinking, remove the ceiling, let go of control and see where your wildest dreams take you. You might discover something that really is a heart-desired goal worthy of your time, attention and effort. It does not work the other way around. Faith will be tested. It’s the faith in yourself that I am referring to.

The Next Shift Point: The Fall Equinox
Soon we are coming to yet another shift point. The elemental seasonal shift point called the Equinox. From the element of Fire to the element of Water for us Northern folks, a shift from the element of Earth to the element of Air for you Southern folks below the equator. I will write on this in the next week or so. Stay tuned.

Back to the energies at hand (or in your head). Be diligent in watching your thought patterns. Monitor “how” they make you feel. If it feels good, keep it up. If you feel stress or nausea, do “anything” else to pull yourself from the pit of fear or apprehension. If you enjoy cooking, do that; a craft, do that. Go for a walk, just sit down for a change or stand up if you have been sitting too long, just do something different, drink lots of water, breathe.

Be conscious of your breathing, connect with the water you are drinking or bathing in. Go out and look up. What does the sky look like today?

What has been rolling around again and again in your head? Therein lies a clue. Get off the bone. Give yourself a break and dream big for a change. You might end up finding out something about yourself and your wildest dreams.

Dream big and hang in there!

Sacred Sites, Power Spots, Portals and Star Gates

Written by Sherrie Locke on 6 Ajpu, August 2014

All sacred sites are special, some are very specific. All activate something inside you. Power spots can be personal or planetary.

Power Spots, Portals and Stargates

We all have our certain places where we have been or have created that make us feel connected, grounded, present and inspired. Those are personal places of power.

When you go there physically or in your mind, you are refreshed and powered up. You can return again and again, literally or on a “journey.” I highly suggest if you are not using this type of visualization or practice, that you find, create and use it now, preferably on a daily basis.

Places “remember” us. It does not only go one way. You remember a tree? It most certainly remembers you, so say hi. You may go to that place, not to take anything, but to plug in and be refreshed, re-inspired, relaxed and to re-connect.

I live in a power spot, a sacred place. Living or visiting a place such as this will bring things to the surface. Things to be cleared will become apparent, and the opportunity to do so will present itself. Once these blockages are cleared, it allows room for more inspiration and refreshed thought.

I notice a lot of people these days recounting past experiences, it seems to be coming out in stories of the past. These are productive only if you are still in process with these energies. Some cultures, such as my ancestry, the Tewa, utilize storytelling as a way of teaching through metaphor, so it removes the personal story and makes it a functional teaching tool.

If you are telling stories of the past, you most certainly need to look at what you missed the first time around. If you catch yourself “stuck” in a specific time frame loop of stories, stop the action and look at what this is telling you about you. It may not be bad, you could simply be tapping a happier time. Well, what made that a happier time, or more anything? The answer is You.

How have you shifted and changed, or not? What have you been repeating, or not repeating, that your own consciousness wants to take you to another time and place to process? What can you do currently to be fully present in this moment to the point that no thought of the past or future enters here?

Sit with your pet, a flower, your garden or something inspirational. Please, above all, practice meditation! If you do not practice some type of meditation, how can you possibly make any progress of true expansion?

A sacred site or power spot (personal or planetary) can assist you greatly with this procedure or process especially if you enter into it with clear intention.

Star Gates

A star gate is an alignment that opens up a current or stream of information/energy/knowledge to come into our sphere for a certain period of time. A star gate has a mathematical and geometric alignment, thus creates a synchronicity. A star gate can facilitate a new way of thinking and processing by bringing in “new” energies. Sometimes the effects are immediate, and sometimes we ‘get it’ but it takes a while to integrate.

Every so often we get hit by a gamma ray burst or X-rays from a distant constellation like Cygnus. These are also star gates, allowing new energies into our sphere. The higher our vibratory rate, the greater the break through and the less physical discomfort we experience. Resistance is futile and also uncomfortable, so it’s best to just go with the flow, or “surf,” as we call it. Don’t get dragged under by these new energies, stay on top of the wave.

Portals

Portals exist and can also be opened, thus created. Ask anyone who has done ceremony with elders or knows any ritual magick, and they are likely to give you a lecture on learning to hold space before you go poking about with energies you are not familiar with.

Knowing your intent and setting, holding and closing space is essential knowledge. These works open portals. If you don’t close them properly, it’s a problem. Open and close all rituals and ceremonies, clean and clear the space before and after. If you have closed properly, there will be no necessity for a mop-up job afterwards, just sayin’. The portal will shut down after your intended works.

There are lots of stories of houses and places that become “weird” after a ceremony or ritual has been performed. I am telling you it’s due to the fact the people performing the openings don’t really know their stuff. They leave leaks or open portals all together. These are a challenge to shut down, since one likely does not know the ritual that opened them to begin with. Therefore, be mindful of your level of understanding!

There are also areas that are known for portals to other dimensions. We have an area here at Lake Atitlan, Lalibela Ethiopia is a portal area, and there’s also Mount Shasta, a couple of places in Argentina and of course Peru. Peru has many star gates and portals. You can do the research, or better yet, go there and talk to the locals. Lake Titicaca has been termed a portal area.

Just remember…

A star gate is an alignment that opens up a channel and subsequent current of transformative energy for a certain period of time.

A portal may be a fixed location or can be opened ritually.

Please remember to be mindful, intentional and know your stuff. Protect yourself as necessary.

It’s super important to be mindful of both what you are doing and why you are doing it. You hear me say this all the time, but are you truly conscious of what I am saying?

The Celestial Gates: Portals of Ascension and Descent

Written by Sherrie Locke on 7 Imox, August 2014

I wrote about the Lion’s Gate portal a few days ago. Now I will discuss the basis of celestial stargates and portals, which comes from Greek and Vedic yuga astrology. I find it likely that this knowledge came from Egypt, but may have originated in Atlantis.

The Silver Gate and the Golden Gate

Greek astrologers spoke of two gates in the heavens: the Silver Gate and the Golden Gate, which were called the Gate of Man and the Gate of God in Vedic astrology. Many ancient cultures believed that between incarnations on this planet, souls dwelled in the Milky Way.
The Greek writer Macrobius, among others, said that during a solstice (the alignment of the Sun with the ecliptic), the corresponding gate opens. Souls could incarnate on Earth by descending through the Silver Gate, or could ascend to the heavens through the Golden Gate

Celestial Stargates the silver gate and golden gate

These gates are located at opposite sides of the galactic equator, where the Milky Way crosses the ecliptic. The Golden Gate is at 5° Gemini, near galactic center in Sagittarius. The Silver Gate is at galactic anti-center: 5° Sagittarius, above the hand of Orion. In ancient times, the Maya focused on galactic center, which they called Heart of Sky. On the other side of the planet, the Egyptians kept a close eye on Orion.

The Silver and Golden Gates are at opposite ends of a straight line that Vedic Yuga astrology calls the chakra of the galaxy, with the root chakra at galactic center and the crown chakra at anti-galactic center. These celestial gates form the basis of other alignments referred to as stargates or portals, which are not quite the same thing.

I will go into detail on celestial stargates such as the Lion’s Gate, Sphinx Gate and the upcoming 11-11 stargate, as well as portals, in a future post.

Happy travels to other dimensions! Happy Transcendence!
