Every state in the country has a child support enforcement agency. No where in the country will you find a visitation enforcement agency! The reason? For Every dollar the court collects in child support arrears they get a dollar. So for the 25,000 that I was in arrears for, that I paid, the court got 25,000! The court didn’t get any money when I visited my daughter. Family law needs to be abolished!
A year ago today, at this time, I was laying in the snow, half naked, semi-consious, fighting for my life. Unable to walk after a seizure, I only remembered focusing on getting warm. My car battery was dead and I couldn’t charge my phone. I had managed to get to my car by rolling across the ground. The young man that found me at 11 clock that morning later told me that it looked like a war zone where I had struggled to get in the car. Frost bitten hands and feet did not help the situation. I couldn’t feel the car keys in my hand and remember I kept dropping them – I couldn’t feel them. I know that I am alive today for many reasons and I thank God for all of them. I will never forget thinking that where I was at was a vacation destination. Where we’re all the cross country skiers? Instead I was sent a man riding his bike in the snow. I said, You’ve got to be kidding. He saw me wave my arm and rushed over. He went home, called emergency services, then came back with blankets to cover me till help arrived. I could feel the warmth from the blankets, instantly. That’s all I remembered until they started putting a warm saline solution in me in the ambulance. They had heated blankets. Then I woke up in the ER. My life changed from that day. I’m extremely grateful to everyone that helped me along the way. While I get snowed in today, I get to reflect on my life. What a gift.
The experience Amy had , repeated an experience Dad had and he survived 6 months before exiting
Amy’s experience revealed many wonderful affirmations as we share a birth year and both have weathered much loss .
Amy proved our services DO care about elders and she was put in alignment with “helpers” and much prayer as she has survived, and thrives these days certainly grateful for the opportunity to grow and share herself , her wisdoms and yes her joy and love.
Amy shares the birth sign of Capricorn ♑as was my Dad and she’s as tenacious and focused as Dad was , and she’s my dear friend .
I celebrate Amy on this day, and look forward to many more days with Amy being part of my ” tribe” as changes test us collectively we know we have a part in pulling Heaven to Earth and I’m Blessed as are many that Divinity was with Amy Adams
and revealed to the community and soon the world will read her story and be uplifted by her journey as a Crone …a very very wise woman !
Blessings & Peace
CALL TO ACTION: Creating space for the Divine Feminine is more than just trendy words or room decor. It is a promise we make deep within our Spirit to develop a relationship, a communion with the Feminine aspect of God no matter what we believe or practice. How do we do this when there are scant few holy books to guide us, when there isn’t an established protocol of communion laid out for us?
To simply mimic what has been done for the patriarchal aspect of God might be a beginning, but consider this: Do you have the same relationship with your Father as you do your Mother? What are the differences? The expectations? What is your heart’s deepest desire?
These are noteworthy considerations that serve as today’s journal prompt. What do we mean by a relationship with the Divine Feminine? How do we even know where to begin?
I have known for years that this was a calling within me. It began as a question (Why is there no Mother in the sacred trinity? Why aren’t we told about God the Mother? I imagined She had done something terribly wrong and was ostracized somewhere beyond the realm of reach. After all, this was largely the lesson I got from the Bible of what happens to most women: punishment, banishment, turned to salt, leprosy, stoning – it seemed it never ended well for any woman of the Bible, and that mostly they served as a warning on how not to be. That and that God didn’t like women. It breaks my heart to even write that, but it’s true.
That isn’t entirely the Bible’s fault – more the hermeneutics which most Christian sects employ. The Bible is a vast, profound book of mystery and wonder, but it’s largely used as a tool with which to generate fear and judgment, and to gain and maintain power over others. Even those that regularly attend church rarely visit the depths of it, instead letting pastors and ministers decide which verses are important. But I digress.
It took a lifetime of searching and querying, stumbling and gestalt to even begin to know where and how to look. My art is a result of that searching.
Beginning a relationship with Her is something that each of you have already begun, but isn’t it interesting to consider how came you to be here? I have more to add, but if you feel inclined I would love to know what event or things led you to seek Her. This is your opportunity as priestesses and abbesses to confer light in the dark, and wisdom to the thirsty. I believe much can be revealed when we simply gather round and intuitively discourse (as ancient women knew).
I feel these answers could well be a lamp in the dark for many coming upon this post.

“10 Symptoms of Ascension Flu”
by Katherine Anne Lee
With any kind of physical ailment, there’s an energetic root. This could be obvious – like the same old stress at work that always makes your shoulders ache. Or, the root of your illness could run so deep that it’s ancestral, carried in your DNA and impossible to identify, looking at only this lifetime. A thorough treatment of a physical issue requires tapping into this root, into the energetic cause, which could be something like a trauma, a familial belief pattern or even an ancient spiritual contract. Find a way to access this, do the work to clear it out and you’ll see its physical manifestation shift.
It works the other way, too. If you make conscious changes in your energy body, if you unpack some old, limiting thought pattern or belief system, or let go of a harmful emotion like shame or guilt, then a ripple effect will move through the energy bodies, until it reaches your physical body. And it’s here on the physical plane that, even if you’re feeling emotionally tip-top, the last vestiges of this emotional block will emerge, until your whole being has been realigned.
But as this happens, it can make you feel pretty crappy. But don’t worry. It’s common. So common it has a name: Ascension flu.
Ascension Flu and Symptoms
Here is a list of the most common ascension symptoms, and yes, many of these are very similar to “the flu.” But before you put that skeptic’s hat on, ask yourself… what’s that all about?
- Aches and Pains
Unexplainable achy-ness, joint or muscle pain can be a sign that your body is re-adjusting to a new frequency. Commonly, dense energy builds up in the neck, shoulders, and back. And when this is being forced to dissipate, it hurts!
Gentle yoga flows, targeted energy healing and drinking plenty of water, and adding mineral salts to your bathing water, are all ways to soothe these flu-like body aches.
Some of the worst ascension symptoms to experience are headaches. Often these relate to the third eye and/or crown chakras being opened, causing any ‘junk’ that’s in the way (possibly stored in the pineal gland) to be released. Overthinking, and trying to ‘figure things out’ will often make it worse, as the higher vibrational alignment you’re being called into isn’t (yet) perceivable by the logical brain, so doing this is an expression of your resistance.
Essential oils are a great healing resource for these kinds of ascension headaches.
- Runny Nose/Blocked Sinuses
Symptoms that may also be connected to the third eye chakra. But in addition, an excess of mucus can be a physical manifestation of the intense release of debris from your whole being. If accompanied by coughing, and the mucus is being brought up from the lungs, it’s a sign the heart chakra is undergoing a clearing too.
- Sore Throat
Related to the ascension symptoms above, a sore throat can be a further sign that your highest chakras are moving into wholeness. But a sore or achy throat also ties into self-expression. Many lightworkers and people who are raising their consciousness and undergoing spiritual awakening are still not talking about it openly. Sure, it’s scary and puts you in a vulnerable position (and a lot of the fear we hold of talking about the unseen realms is down to ancestral conditioning) but it’s the truth, and it’s important to discuss. As an ascension symptom, a sore throat may indicate the adjustment occurring, as these old fears of speaking out are released.
- Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
This is unexpectedly common and actually pretty scary for many people. Can last just a few moments, or go on for a few days. As sound is the closest vibration to the astral realms we’re able to feel through our senses, it’s where many of the finer adjustments of ascension can be perceived.
Can also indicate the sphere of your personal awareness(to all facets of life, seen and unseen) being widened.
- Sensitivity to Noise
Another flu-like ascension symptom which can make it truly hard to get out there and face the world when you’re suffering is high sensitivity to noise. Related to the point above, particularly if you’ve been working through emotional blocks relating to conditioning around your perception, and what you believe to be true about the world.
This may also be a precursor to the emergence of clairaudience – the ability to hear psychically.
- Fluctuating Temperature
A common flu-like symptom caused by spiritual activation is your body temperature rising or falling unexpectedly. Imagine your phone when you’ve been on a call for an hour- it gets uncomfortably hot. When there’s a lot of ‘behind the scenes’ activation happening, your body temp can get way out of whack.
- Heart Palpitations
Scary, yes. Your heart rate may change, speed up, or flutter without any external cause. This may be another symptom of the heart chakra activating.
But of course, if this goes on for any length of time or is genuinely distressing or worrisome, get yourself to a doctor quick smart.
- Changes in Appetite
The human body’s need for physical nourishment can fluctuate dramatically when your level of consciousness rises and symptoms of ascension hit. You may not be hungry at all for months. You may feel starving all the time! You may crave only light, raw food as the vibration of your physical body rises. Or you may desire heavy, protein-rich food as you feel the urge to ground. Don’t resist whatever messages your body is giving you. Eat what you need to. When you need to.
- Lethargy / Low Energy
A very common symptom of spiritual awakening is low energy levels. Of course it is – moving through such a lot of internal adjustments is exhausting work!
But if this becomes ongoing or shifts into depression, seek help. Long term unhappiness is not acceptable, whatever your circumstances.
- Sleep Patterns Changing
Regularly waking up at 3 am? Needing a mid-afternoon nap? As your internal body structures are reorganizing and up-leveling, you may find that you need to recharge at odd hours of the day, or that you wake up energized at equally odd hours of the night!
As frustrating as this is when you have a 9-5 to hold down, or children to take care of, this is a very normal sign of spiritual awakening. So when possible, go with it. And trust that your body is doing what it needs to and you will return to balance.
If you want to be a bad ass sexually empowered woman, embrace your inner hag.
The crone. The ancient old woman. The witch. The hag.
The crone archetype is an aspect of the feminine not exactly associated with sexuality.
Women groom themselves to be girls. The younger the better.
Paint those lips red and blush those cheeks like you are wet and ripe for impregnation.
Make them believe you are in perpetual ovulation.
Make them hard. Make them desire you
Get that face lift. Suck in that belly. Bat those lashes.
The crone doesn’t give a fuck.
And that is her power.
She embraces her spider lines and swinging, sagginesss.
After all, this is what life does to the body of a woman…eventually!
Does that make you uncomfortable? Would you rather not see?
Her secret threatens to corrupt you.
She can make you wild.
She can reveal to you your power.
Your volcanic senseless holy
Once she opens her mouth, the jig is up.
They tell you she is crazy.
Dangerous because she has broken out of that jail cell you call restrictions.
How would you have sex if you didn’t give a fuck about how pretty you look?
Or how flat your stomach is?
The crone is not an object of desire.
She is free to claim her own desire.
In a world that praises women for being objects of desire.
Where the more lust you can seduce the more value you possess, the crone is laughing with that cackle that only women of power have.
She does not possess the enchanting beauty of the maiden or the fertile reproductive juices of the mother.
She no longer bleeds. She no longer bares children.
Her sex no longer waxes and wanes with the moon, gaining and draining energy with each passing tide.
She is full.
The portal to her blood has been sealed.
She is drinking in the nectar. She is bathing in its luminous darkness.
Her sex is a diamond pressed and polished by years of experience and wisdom.
She has passed through all the phases of initiation as a woman.
That heavy web of social conditions all feminine creatures are baptized into.
She is unraveling herself from these webs.
She has liberated her sex from all their stories.
She is making it to the other side.
Without the ability to be a mother or a sex object, what is left of a woman and her sex?
I’ll tell you what.
Pure power that doesn’t give a fuck.
Crazy wisdom that knows how to make love to the moment.
Sex that ripples through every authentic cell of your body.
Sex that pulses with every tiny whisper of life knowing life.
If you want to find the seat of your sexual power.
Your real deep sovereign sexual nature.
Find the crone that lives in you.
Wild. Ugly. Innocent. Real.
The real initiation begins here.

WHEN YOU LOVE AN ANCIENT SOUL
There is a special type of person in this world that is often misunderstood.
These people tend to be the loners, the free spirits, the innocent lovers. They see the world for all it can and should be.
They are the old souls, the dreamers, the people in tune with life, so intuitive of emotions that they frighten us.
They scare not because of who they are, but because of who we are not, what we lack.
Ancient souls reach depths we cannot understand. They have a connection to the Universe, to nature, and that’s why they are the people who are going to change the world.
Their touch is unusual, their sex is unusual, their clarity of view is unusual.
We often feel inferior, as if we have to strive to be even remotely close to their level, to be worthy of their love.
It takes a confident person to love an old soul.
But it’s worth it.
It will change your life.
They are romantic, they are loyal, they help us grow, they are not materialistic, they understand the deep connections in life, they are grateful, they are examples of bravery.
They walk the most painful roads of this life, and yet somehow they find the courage to smile, to be selfless, to support others.
Loving an old soul and being loved by them is a gift from the Universe!

Lots of folks are waking to what
is not a reality ..and releasing
“contracts ” , even with what
feels sacred and the Divine
Counterpart of this life time .
Reunions are ignored , in lieu
of fear , wanting to control what
is ordained on high .
Delays of years are being
released as unions of souls be
Others become aware there are
options , including resisting
any contact at all..
I’m surrendered to knowing
and doing better , trusting my
journey , Thy Will Being Done .
I grasp the light that I share is
often reflected by the other..
Intentions are fleeting and time
silence negate the soul
It’s common to feel rejected but I
am more discerning , and don’t
hold the shame or blame of
anther, past , current or future .
I’m at peace ✌
